Miss Wilson said.
"Our plans also include increas

"Y.W.C.A. work is a challenge

Campaign manager Jensen, in
commenting on the presidential
election of 1956, stated that he
"believes" if Pogo gets the most
votes "he'll win."
Jensen went on to say, "The
purpose of the Pogo Campaign
is to give those people without

from all political conventions to

a cartoonist, explained, "It is just
that he wants to give everybody

"For him to sweep the conven

by storm would be undemocratic,"
Kelly went on to say.
"He does not feel that he should
dictate the nomination. Neither will
he say who is for vice."
"He feels that the best man for
the job would be the best man;
whoever was for vice last time,
unless he is shilly shallower, should
be for vice again."

Tickets for the Tony Martin va
riety show sponsored by the Union
will go on sale Tuesday from 10
a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 to 5
p.m. in the Union booth.
The program, which features
Martin, Tex Beneke, and the Glenn
Miller Orchestra, is scheduled for
Oct. 12 in the Coliseum. Other
stars include The Jodimars (for
merly Bill Haley's Comets), the
Petticoats, Conn and Mann, and
Johney O'Brian, all of whom have
appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Marilyn Staska, co-ordinator for
the show, said Monday that the
show is "the best variety show on
the road this year and Nebraska
is very fortunate to get it." The
show will travel to various uni
versities over the country for a
period of two weeks only.
Student tickets only will be sold
in the Union booth. Price of the
special student tickets are $1, and
are for the rear balcony.
Tickets on the mainfloor will
be available at the Union Ticket
Office, according to Polly Downs,
chairman of the ticket sales. These
better tickets range in price from
$1.50 to $3.00, she said.
Martin, who is the main attrac
tion of the program, is well known
as a movie star, singer, bandlead
er, night club entertainer, and top
recording artist. His career really
began when he organized his own
band while attending Oakland High
School in his home town of Oak
land, Calif. He had established a
reputation as a night club per
sonality when he decided to try
his luck in Hollywood. His big
break came when Daryl Zanuck
heard him and signed him for a
contract which was later to ex
pand into a career which includ
ed such pictures as "Music In My
Heart," "Ziegfield Girl," "The
Big Story", "Show Boat," "Till
The Clouds Roll By" and "Here
Come The Girls."
Tex Beneke, who began his ca
reer as a saxophone player with
the Glenn Miller band, had scored
many such hits as "Kalamazoo,"
"Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Ida"
and his masterful sax hit "Body
and Soul," before he was asked
to take over the band when Miller
was declared "missing in action"
during the war. Today he is ac
cepted by the public, not only in
lieu of Glenn Miller's band, but
as a recognized band leader in
his own right. .
Publicity for the variety pro
gram will be handled by Union
committee members Roy Boyd
and Karen Dryden. "All students
who want to attend should be
warned to purchase their tickets
early, because all previous engage
ments of this type for the Martin
show have been sold out well in
advance of curtain time," the
