Houdini, and Howard Thurston, the
great magician, went to great
lengths in his search for the secret
of Dunninger's feats. .
Some University' skeptics will
challenge Durminger. Three stu
dents from Selleck Quadrangle,
Ken Ash, Doug Watkins and San
ford McConnell, will present a test
for his telepathic abilitities.
They' will present a sealed con
tainer of envelopes, each of which
contains a thought, to Dunninger.
He will be asked to determine the
number of envelopes and the mes
sage of the combined thoughts.
According to Dick Shugrue, Daily

member of the Daily Nebraskan
staff, who will not be disclosed un
til the show, has memorized a four
digit number from a news story of
the October 22, 1937, Daily Nebras

dents will attempt to determine the
authenticity of Dunninger's alleged
mind-reading powers.

"Under such conditions," he ex
plained, "confusion, muddle-head-edness
and even moral apathy oft

ditions under which more and
more people will be called to live

Dr. Henzlik warned that if we
don't provide "the common man
with the opportunity to develop the
power to make free choices, to
separate the truth from falsehood
and to distinguish good from evil,'!
then "we must give up the right
to be free men and women."
He described the workings of the
Nebraska Community Education
Project being condcted by the
University in Mullen, Syracuse,
Sidney and York.
Dr. Henzlik called the Project
an unique example of how com
munities are learning "to intefli
gently identify their needs and
capitalize their resources in vital

living process."
He explained that the Project
in each town involves large num
bers of citizens "organized into
working groups who voluntarily
accept the responsibilities of deter
mining the long term needs and
setting up the long-term goals for
community improvement."
Dr. Henzlik termed ' the ulti

out, the school must "keep open
the channels and develop and re

Reische stated that the IFC

Reische said.
The possibility of having several

committee, after the Council de

"I think that if such a program
is planned right it will be a real
success for the University fraterni
ties," Reische commented.
" The privilege of having a Ball

Chairman of the Parking Ap
peak Board, Dave Keene, , read
a letter from Chancellor Hardin
to Dean of Student Affairs, J. P.
Colbert, concerning a proposed
University Committee on parking.
Speaking on the feasibility of
such a committee Hardin stated:
"At least, as an initial step,
I would feel that subh a commit
tee should be advisory in nature
or, if you please, a fact-finding
committee. As we progress in our
efforts to meet this problem, it
may develop that a policy-making
group would be advisable. I feel,
however, that in the beginning
such a committee can best serve
the University by making a study
of the situation and submitting
its recommendation for further con
sideration." Keene stated that the Student
Council proposed that the park
ing committee be a "fact-finding
group with authority coming from
the University."
According to Keene, Dean Col
bert, in a letter to Chancellor Har
din, suggested that the committee
"be a policy making group rather
than just a fact-finding group.'
