Ticket sales for the Sym

and the performance was moved
from the Coliseum to the Union
Ballroom. However, salesmen
refused to turn in their tickets
and when the final returns were
in the sales totaled 900. At noon
on the day of the performance
another 100 tickets turned up.

mental affairs, homes and schools. "Just every

Mrs. Boenninghausen laughed as she posed
for a Nebraskan photographer and said it was
not as bad as the three days just after she landed
in New York when a State Department photo
grapher took 350 pictures for magazines, papers
and journals here and abroad.

Ropes were used to divide the
sections. They take np less room
than aisles. The ushers had to be
exceptionally careful, because
the number of seats in each sec
tion was made to balance
exactly with the number of
tickets sold. Asked if the room
seemed overcrowded, Snyder re
plied that at five minutes to
eight the ushers couldn't stand
to look at the crowd and they
turned their backs.
Chairs were set up on the bal-l
cony and when the ballroom was
full chairs were placed in the
halls. The Union board members
stationed themselves in the pro
