The tommittee on Student Af
fairs voted Monday to open its
hearings to press coverage and to
any interested persons.
The Committee's decision came
after an interview with Fred Daly,
Daily Nebraskan editor, and Sam
Jensen, first semester editor. Jen
sen first made the request to the
committee last semester.
On announcing the Student Af
Action 'Postponed'
On IFC Ball Petition
Two members of the Interfrat-e'-mty
Council, Dick Reische, pres
ident, and Bill Dahl, treasurer,
rjet with the faculty committee on
student affairs in an open hear
ing Monday to discuss possibili
ties of an IFC Ball.
Formal action on the petition
which called for an "IFC Ball to
be part of a fraternity weekend
to be held either the weekend of
May 11 or 18" was postponed un-
til more definite facts are pre
sented. -
Reische and Dahl will meet
with the committee on student af
fairs Friday at 3:40 p.m. to dis
cuss the request further. The hear'
ing will be open to the public.
The IFC petition called for the
Ball to be in conjunction with a
"fraternity weekend" which would
also include an IFC Banquet for
fraternity presidents and alumni
on Thursday night at the Univer
sity Club and an open-house dance,
sponsored by the Junior 1FU, in
day night.
"The presidents of the fraterni
ties comprising the InterfraternLy
Council will be held responsible
for the actions of their individual
members," the petition read.
Members of the committee ques
tioned Reische and Dahl about the
location of the proposed dance
which, according to Reische,
would be held at the Turnpike Ball
room. Committee member, -Arthur
" Ward, stated that he feared an
unfavorable precedent would be
set if the University permitted the
IFC to hold an official function
off campus limits. Current admin
istrative rules forbid University
functions from being held outside
of the Lincoln city limits.
Dr. Bertrand Schultz, who is a
t student affairs committee mem
ber and a faculty advisor of the
IFC, stated that be and the other
Council advisors' Dr. William Gil
liland and Bill Orwig, were "100 "
per cent in favor of the IFC week
Committee member, Robert
Knoll, cited the proximity of the
proposed fraternity weekend with
Spring Day which is tentatively
scheduled for April 26 and Ivy
Day, May 4.
Reische stated that the "IFC
didn't want to plan an event which
would conflict with Ivy Day and
Spring Day."

Tobacco Secondary:
The body's own safeguard
against lung cancer, a built-in bul
let-proof vest, is no match for air
pollutants resulting from the Ma
chine Age, a leading national path
ologist said at the University of
Nebraska Monday evening.
Dr. Paul Kotin, assiciate profes
sor oi pathology at the Univer
sity of Southern California, said ir
ritants in the atmosphere cause
the top layers of the membranes
lining the lungs to peel off, ex
posing the bottom layer where
cancer starts.
He explained that normally the
respiratory tract and lungs can
expel cancer-causing agents which
are inhaled. "Air pollutants, how
ever, interfere with this resistance
and modify the lining of the lungs
so much that cancer producers are
able to settle in the lungs.
This means that the bullet, or
cancer producer, is aimed direct
ly at the body's susceptible parts,"
Dr. Kotin explained.
Both synthetic and natural smog
appear to cause the peeling
away of the puter lining of the
bronchial tubes in experimental an
imals, he pointed out.
Rats, rabbits, mice, and guinea
pigs breathing articifial smog in a
laboratory have shown the same
sequence of change in their, lungs,
ur. liotin toia the audience.
'Even bronchial tubes of small
animals put outdoors on a smog-
gy day in Los Angeles deteriorate
in this way."

hind this right, Colbert said, is
that the Committee "has respon

The Issue was brought up last
semester by Jensen in letters to
the Student Council and Subcom
mittee on Student Publications, He
appeared b e f o r e the Student Af
fairs Committee on several occa

paper on opening the meetings.

South Pacific Tryoyis
Set For March 9, 10
Persons wishing to tryout for
a lead in tne Kosmet Klub pre

purchase a copy of "South Pa
cific" music at Walts Music, Store
or Dietze Music Store by. pre
senting to them a "Permission to
buy slip".
These slips may be obtained in
the Kosmet Klub booth in the
Union from 1 to 5 p.m. each after
noon this week, according to Jerry
Brownfield, publicity director for
Kosmet Klub. The price of the
music is 60 cents per copy
Kosmet Klub is not furnishing
the music for tryouts because of
a difficulty with the Music House,
which cannot get material to us at
this time
Those trying out for baritone
should purchase "Some Enchanted
Evening," tenors, "Younger than
Springtime," Altos, "Bali Hai,
and sopranoes, "I'm in Love With
A Wonderful Guy" or "A Cock
eyed Optimist."
Tryout schedule for "South Pa
cific", Saturday afternoon: 1-2
p.m., male leads; 2-3 p.m., female
leads: 3-4:30 p.m., chorus; 4:30-
5:00 p.m.t dancers.
Tryout schedule for Sunday: 1-
1:45 p.m.. male leads; 1:45-2:30
p.m., female leads; 2:30-3:30 p.m.,
chorus; 3:30-4 p.m., dancers and
4-6 p.m., callbacks.
All of those who are trying out
or CTgucgf
human autopsies in the Los Ange
les area have shown a similar re
sponse on the part of the lung
lining to irritants.
H- explained that although cancer-causing
agents have been in
thu air for centuries, it is only
within the last 50 years that they
have become important in lung
Air pollution by industry, automo
biles, and the machine age in gen
eral are primarily to blame for
this change, he said.
"there is at present no convinc
ing evidence that tobacco possesses
the necessary qualifications for the
start and promotion of lung can
cer," Dr. Kotin said. "Excessive
smoking appears to play only a
secondary role in the increase in
lung cancer rates."
