Don Holyoke from Hastings came
back with legs, arms and torso
a criss-cross of painful scratches
after a short, but sharp encounter
with underwater- barnacles grow
ing on pilings of an ocean front
pier near St. Augustine, Fla.
Holyoke, drummer in the band,
was one of many Huskers who
made use of Florida's miles of
beach front to ride ocean waves
as they came in. He said he
had gone out "quite a ways" to
practice his surf riding when he
heard a call for help. "I looked
in front of me while I was com
ing in," he said, "but didn't see
anyone. I thought maybe I just
imagined hearing the call. But the
voice came again louder this time
with some other people joining in.
"This time, I looked behind me,"
Holyoke said, "and saw a group of
people standing on a pier. There
were a lot of people pointing down
at the water to one of the pilings
under the pier. When I looked
again I saw a fella I knew hang
ing on to one of the piers. I swam
over to help him, but couldn't
get him to let go of the piling he
was hanging onto.
"Then it happened," Holyoke con
tinued. "A big wave broke just
a little way away from us and
swept me under the pier and into
the pilings which were covered
with these sharp barnacles. I avoid
ed the first few pilings, but I was
Sting so fast that I finally hit one
a them allmost head on.
"I put my arms around it to
keep from going farther, but that
didn't keep me from getting pretty
well cut up."
Holyoke said that no more big
waves, at least as big as the one
that pushed him into the pilings,
came along.
"A boy from St. Augustine was
In the water by now, and we
managed to help my friend out
of the water onto the beach.
"They took me to a hospital
St. Augustine," Holyoke said, "and
the doctors started to work on my
cuts. First I got some tetnus
shots (the barnacles were poison
ous) and then they poured al
cohol over all my cuts. Then
the doctors put some sort of 'goo'
over my arms, legs, feet and

Interested in puppets? If so,
register for an extension course
in puppetry taught by Marjorie
Shanafelt, assistant to the director
of the Morrill Hall Museum.
The third session of the pup
petry course will open the first
Monday in February. Miss Shan
afelt instructs her students in the
art of constructing and manipu
lating the different kinds of pup
ets and marionettes.
During the last summer school
iession, Miss Shanafelt presented
a shadow puppet show, "The White
Cloth of Fantasy," as a part of
the Summer Artist Series. She
manipulated her shadow puppets in
a composite fairy tale and shad
ow circus featuring both animals
and people.
Cloth Screen
She said that the secret of shad
ow puppetry is the use of a light
behind a white cloth screen which
is 60" wide by 34" high. The pup
ets are manipulated by long wires.
The simplicity of the set can be
magnified by the use of music,
' theatrical dimmers, color wheels,
spotlights, duplicate, lights which
cast double shadows.
Miss Shanafelt explained, "I am
ti-vine. with these shadows, to in
troduce something that teachers
can use toward an idea of great
er beauty in the classroom." She
added. "When I perform before a
croup, I attempt to adapt the
ta the needs of the
I' ' " O ' - .
Basically a string puppeteer, Miss
poll, has Brubeck at the piano with
Bass Player Bob Bates, Alto
Saxophonist Paul Desmond and
Drummer Joe Dodge.
Described by many critics as
the most exciting new jazz artist
at work today, Brubeck has de
finite ideas about how his audi
ences should behave. He feels
there should be no loud joking or
talking while his group is per
formjng. He has been known to
leave the bandstand in the mid
die of a number and threaten a
noisy customer.
In the past five years, fans of
the combo have grown from a
small West Coast clique to a
coast-to-coast crowd with Bru
beck's main popularity existing
on college campuses. The first
Columbia record made by Bru
beck and his group, "Jazz Goes
to College," for four months out
sold any single album by any
other pianist.
By the time he was four years
old, Brubeck was playing the
piano. While studying to be a
veterinarian at the College of the
Pacific at Stockton, Calif., he be
gan playing jazz piano in night
He played in Army bands on the
Coast during World War II, and
then, in 1946, he decided to be
come a composer and studied at
Mills College. But instead, he
formed his own quartet in Cali
fornia in 1951 when American
jazz was being revived.
In regard to his ambition of
being a composer, Brubeck said,
"I have yet to find the composer
who I think is happy. In jazz you
can perform what you compose.
When I get inspired, I'm the hap
piest guy in the world.'"
Goodwill Visits
To High Schools
Planned By Ag
Trips to Wahoo, Mead and Te-
cumseh " ' 'schools have been

Chairman Bill DeWulf announced
that the purpose of these trips is
to put forth the advantages of the
University, and the Ag College in
particular. A coed and a male
student will accompany a faculty
member on each of the coming
visits. The first trip will be to
Wahoo Tuesday, January 11th.
Mrs. Keeler, assistant professor
of vocational education, DeWulf,
Larry Connor, Sharon Egger and
Linda Buthman will make the trip

Panel To Discuss
Foreign Tongues
The importance of foreign
languages to the citizens of the
United States will be discussed at
the meeting of NUCWA Tuesday
at 7:15 p.m. in Union Room 316.
Members of the discussion panel
are: Charles W. Colman, associate
professor of Romance language;
Lloyd D. Teale, associate profes
sor of Romance language and
John Winkelman, assistant profes
sor of Germanic Languages.
Foreign students are especially
invited to attend, said President
Sharon Mangold.
Shanafelt car. work with as many
as 100 shadow puppets at a time,.
She added that, in addition to
beine used for entertainment, pup
pets are now used as therapeutic
devices, and for educational work.
Miss Shanafelt has been working
with marionettes for approximately
21 years. She said, "Puppetry
is an avocation for me I use
it as an expression of art, in
stead of music, painting or sculp
ting." She has given special programs
all over the country. Among Miss
Shanafelt's shows in Europe were
request performances, which she
gave at the Palace in Copenhagen,
Miss Shanafelt refers to her
home in Lincoln as "The Puppet's
House." The room in which the
puppets are displayed is called
the "puppeteeria," and it's walls
are covered with approximately 175
puppets used by famous puppet
eers. Her marionette collection
has included as many as 250 pup
pets. Recently she sent a selec
tion of them to Puerto Rico for
the purpose of aiding enthusiasts
and prospective puppeteers there.
The first records f the use of
shadow puppets date back to 121
B. C, and since then they have
been used in some form in nearly
every country. Puppetry reached
a height of popularity in France
during the reign of Louis XIV
when everyone went to the shadow

Rain-drenched Nebraska s t u-

returned with one conviction
rain or no rain they wouldn't have
missed the parade or game for
"I loved it even though we
walked miles through puddles to
our ankles," Lil Kitzleman, sen
ior in Teacher's College said.
"The parade was one of the most
beautiful and elaborate produc
tions I've ever seen," Audie Jones,
sophomore in Teacher's College,
Snarled Traffic
It was necessary to feave at
7 a.m. in order to find a parking
place within 8 blocks of Colorado
Boulevard, where the five mile
parade marched, Miss Jones said.
Traffic was snarled ana crawling
at a snail's pace, Miss Kitzleman
said. Her party was forced to
walk to the stadium through ankle
deep puddles.

the peak of their beauty was seen
in China in the early centuries
where they were made of colored
transparent skin, the coloring
process of which is a lost art.
Most of the shadow puppets
used in modern times are solid,
black, projected figures, but Miss
Shanafelt's shadows are based on
the beauty of the old Chinese pup
pets. The figures are translucent
and a glow of color is created
by the use of vari-colored papers
and plastice.
A charter member of the Pup
peteer of America, Miss Shanafelt
has been a member of the group's
council fon the past two years. The
purpose of the council is to make
rules, solve the problems of pup
peteers all over the nation and
publish a quarterly newspaper en
titled "The Journal."
Miss Shanafelt will demonstrate
shadow puppets at a special booth

ference an opportunity to observe
her techniques.

Both girls commented on the
dignitaries present at the parade.
Chief Justice Earl Warren, Roy
Rogers, the Shah of Iran, Tab
Hunter and Hopalong Cassidy were
a few of the participants in the
Film star Ann Miller, wearing
a pink mink stole to match her
gown, rode on one of the floats.
Art Miller of Omaha rode in the
parade on his prize-winning Palo
mino parade horse.
It is the second- time both girls
have attended the Rose Bowl fes
tivities. Miss Kitzleman attended
two years ago when Wisconsin
played Southern California and
Miss Jones saw the Nebraska Rose
Bowl game.
Raincoats Sold
"It was a thrill to see one of
my Theta sisters on the Big Ten
float, she was ' Miss Michigan,"
Miss Kitzleman said.
There were raincoats on sale
during the game. They were Army
surplus panchos, a cape-like gar
ment used by. the cavalry. "I
bought one, and the khaki paint
ran all over everything," . Miss
Kitzleman said.
The announcer kept referring to
the rain as a mist, Miss Jones
said. "The statement was inac
curate, because I have never seen
such a downpour," she continued.
People slept . in the streets to
see the game and parade, she
added. One family even built a
fire in the gutter to arm them
selves, she said.
.Miss Jones listened to part of the
Orange Bowl game in the car, be
fore the Rose Bowl game. She
said they walked from the parade
to the stadium in high-heeled
shoes and rested in the family
car, which had been parked at
7 a.m.
Horse Costumes
Miss Jones' party entered through
the wrong gate and walked around
the entire stadium before they
reached their seats.
Halftime performances were
very elaborate according to Miss
Kitzleman. The Southern Californ
ia Band - members wore horse
costumes to carry out the Trojan
theme. They formed a merry-go-round,
with band members repre
senting the horses.
"Even the trip home was not
free of rain" Miss Jones said.
"I had planned on retuning to a
clear Nebraska and no rain from
clammy California, but 20 min
utes outside of Kansas City all the
passengers on the plane were
awakened and told to fasten their
safety belts.
"We were entering a severe rain
storm and the stewardess claimed
it , was a safety measure. We
bounced the rest of the way to
Lincoln on air currents," she con
cluded. Beginning Debate

hoo while fishing for sailfish. The
Wahoo is rarely caught around
Miami, and Miller's fish was the
twelfth one caught all year.

"a very rare fish" around Mi

a very strong swimmer, having
been clocked up to 50 miles per
The Wahoo is a dark-blue food

The art works date from the

Still fishing for sailfish, Miller
augmented his catch with a small
tuna. Earlier he had caught four
kingfish, one weighing 30 pounds.
Leaping Trophy
Dick Pickett, who matched Mil
ler's bag of six fish, caught what
was acclaimed by Capt. Germaine
to be "probably the largest sand
perch of the day." The sand perch
was 12 inches long and was caught
while Pickett was fishing for sail
fish. Because of the relative rareness
of his Wahoo, Miller has decided
to make a trophy of it. "I'm
having him mounted in a leaping
urve," Miller said.
His trophy will cost only $1.33
an inch. Pickett declined tQ have
his prize preserved.

but immortalized himself earlier
by falling through a hole in the
floor of an old castle into tha
