Campus Beauties Rekle Contest Thrills
Diane Knotek And Shari Lewis Feel Nebraska Best Place
By DICK SHUGRUE
This was one of those once-in-a-life
Across from me were two queens
Shari Lewis, Nebraska's candi
date for Miss Universe and Diane
Knotek, the state's Miss America
They were both smiling. I was,
too. Then came the inevitable ques
tion Shari popped it: "Well what
would you like to know?"
The two lovelies talked mostly
about the wonderful times they
had representing the Cornhusker
State in contests where theii beau
ty and talent were pitted against
that of outstanding Am?rican girls
and in Shari s case you can add
girls from all over the world.
Diane admitted that at first she
had been a little scared. "I guess
I felt insecure knowing that I was
among all the top giris in the
land," she stuted. "But when 1 got
to know tlem, what I really wanted
was that each one would succeed."
"Mutual misery" was '.he term
Shari used to describe the wpy
most of the young ladies she wa&
with felt about the Miss Universe
contest. She explained that the
Miss Universe had to be willing to
give up all for the contest and Jor
is scheduled to begin immediate
ly, and it is hoped that the
chapel will be completed by April
so it can be dedicated at Eas
ter. Included in the new chapel

which will seat about 300 per

The honorary Producers and
runners-up (two women and two
men) will be presented from the
stage in appropriate ceremonies
at the first performance of "The
Desperate Hours," the initial
theater production, Oct. 16.
Williams said that an important
aspect of this year's contest is the
reduced rate of the season passes.
"They are $1.50 cheaper this year
than they were during the last
few seasons. And for the $5 cost,
you can see seven top shows,"
Williams stated that the win
ning organizations will receive
trophies to be kept during the
year and the 1957 Rush week.
"In addition," Williams said, "a
page of the Cornhusker will be
devoted to pictures of the Honor
ary Producer Ceremonies."
"Ticket sales are not restricted
to members within the organized
houses. Tickets may be sold to
anyone in any place within the
period of the competition, he con

Antelope Park was the scene
of the annual Foreign Student Re
treat Saturday. Approximately 50
students from all parts of the world
were fed a picnic lunch by mem
bers of NUCWA, the Student Coun
cil, CCRC, and other campus or
ganizations. On hand to welcome the students
was Dr. Adam Breckenridge, Dean
of Faculties for the University.
The Rev. Mr. Rex Knowles, pastor
of the Presbyterian-Congregational
Student House, delivered a short
talk on campus religious organiza
tions. Robert Knoll, assistant profes
sor of English, acted as the offi
cial chaperon for the group.
Also present were members of
the Cosmopolitan Club, WAA,
YMCA, and YWCA.
"But there wasn't any feeling of
superiority. None of us felt better
than the next girl. The idea,
though, that I was there with beau
ty surrounding me was enough to
take my breath away," Shari said.

Nebraska's Miss Universe said
that the biggest thrill she had was
being with "such wonderful people
from all over the world and know
ing that they think like Diane or
"We were alike there even to the
little insignificant details of living."
Diane said that her biggest thrill
came when Life magazine was tak
