Do-It-Yourself Exams
For Diabetes Planned
By Ann Moyer
Student Health officials are
introducing a' do-it-yourself
diabetes test for all Universi
ty employees, staff and inter
ested students.
The tests are being taken
in conjunction with the annual
Diabetic Detection Week,
Monday through Saturday. Di
abetes, Assn through the co
operation of state and county
medical societies.
Diabetes Detection
The purpose of the program
Is to help discover unknown
diabetics. Statistics show
there are more than one mil
lion diabetes in the U n i t e d
States under treatment and
the same number of undiscov
ered cases.
The do-it-yourself test will
make it possible for persons
to run their own sugar test. A
test strip is dipped into the
specimen. If there is a color
change the test is positive,
otherwise it is negative indi
cating no diabetic condition.
The result is checked on a
provided card and returned to
Student Health directly or by
means of campus mail.
According to Dr. Samuel
Fuenning, director of Student
Health, this is the first time
the self-tests have been used
for this study. If successful,
he reported, the do-it-yourself
plan may be adopted nation
ally. Progressive Disease
Dr. Fuenning stressed the
Importance of discovering di
abetes at an early stage. If
discovered early, preventive
measures may be employed
to check the disease. Diabetes
is a progressive disease which
eventually leads to other mal
functions. Diabetes results from the
lack of msulin. Due to a lack
of insulin the body cells can
not use sugar. Therefore, an
Sari-Clad Indian Student
Becomes Point of Interest
A sari-clad Indian student
center of attraction as a mod
el in the fabrics section of a
Lincoln department store.
Beatrice Franklin went into
the store to buy some mate
rial to make a winter sari
after she had experienced a
few days of Nebraska win
ter. When she found that she
could use one of the sewing
machines in the store to sew
the sari, she sat down to do
just that..
Soon she found herself sur
rounded by curious women
and when she completed sew

excessive amount collects in
the blood.
In an attempt to wash away
the unused sugar there is an
increased intake of liquids.
Other symptoms include in
crease in appetite, loss of
weight, weakness and general
nervous irritability.
Runs In Families
Diabetes runs in families
and tendency to the disease
often is inherited. However,
anyone can develop diabetes
at any age, Dr. Fuenning said.
Mild cases of diabetes may
be controlled by a diet. A
carefully ordered diet lessens
the amount of sugar intake by
reducing the pure sugar and
starchy foods eaten. Exercise
is also important to the diab
ic. It enables his body to in
crease its ability to use sugar.
A more severe case may
require, in addition to diet and
exercise, the use of insulin or
an oral tablet to make up the
body's insulin deficit. The oral
tablet recently has been de
veloped and has been proved
reasonably effective, accord
ing to Dr. Fuenning.
He said it is used in mod
erate cases raquiring some
medication other than re
stricted diet.
Cooperation Required
. Adiabetic patient must co
operate whole-he'artedly if his
condition is to be controlled
and limited. He must comply
with the limitations of his pre
scribed diet and must use oral
medication or insulin accord
ing to his physicians recom
mendations. Diabetes is rarely fatal but
deaths that do occur are due
chiefly to the fact that people
with suspicious diabetic
symptoms still fail to seek
medical advice or fail to do
their share in carrying out
their doctor's orders, Dr.
Fuenning said.
she was asked to model it.
According to Miss Frank
lin, it takes an hour for her
to machine-stitch a border on
six yards of material com
pared to three hours by hand.
But even though her sari
has the border, in India it
would be "out of date." Bor
ders today are woven into
the fabric .
In India she would be wear
ing two saris a day, one
during the day and the other
in the evening. And she
wouldn't wear the same two
that she wears in a day
again until the next week.
When asked if she prefers
to wear a sari rather than
American-type clothes, Miss
Franklin answered, "Yes, al
ways." Rockefeller Gels
Student Support
Young Republican presi
dential support for Nelson A.
Rockefeller is being solicit
ed by the National Students
for Rockefeller.
In a letter to all Nebraskan
Young Republicans, Bruce
Chapman from Harvard Uni
versity invited support for
the - Rockefeller candidacv.
and urged replys from all in
Chapman is chairman of
the National Students for
Rockefeller, a organization
comprised mostly of Young
The organization is now
mobilizing support for the
nomination and election of
Rockefeller as the one can
didate in the Republican
party who can successfully
appeal to voters of varied
economic, religious and po
litical groups, according to
"The group feels this appeal
is a necessary prerequisite
to a GOP victory in 1960."

The music rooms also may
be used for reading or study
ing but not card playing. Al
len Bennett, Union Director,
said that the Book Nook was
to be primarily a room for
enjoyment and not one for
. Art Displays
On the second floor of the
union another change is tak
ing place. Soon it will be an
art gallery where photograph
ic and art displays from cam
pus and off campus organiza
tions will display their items.
The material is already up
on the walls outside the ball
rooms. The walls around it
will be painted so the display
can be made more attractive.
Bennett said that the new
building was being used to
its maximum utility and for
the next three days all rooms
are booked solid.
The problem now is that the
Union needs to find more per
sonnel, he said. This includes
a baker, which the union has
been without for .tee past
10 days. It now has to
order all baked items from
outside sources except for
pies. Before, two regular bak
ers produced everything ex
cept bread.
The campus is suffering
from overemployment in Lin
coln, he said. Lincoln is 98.2
per cent employed and this
makes it difficult to secure
people in all types of work
that have suitable quality
which we need.
"We hope students will be
tolerant while the number now
employed seek to do what we
can," he continued. "It was
heartbreaking last year when
business did not require the
personnel we did have and
now this year with added per
sonnel we cannot handle it
like we want to," he said.
He said that suggestions
from students are welcome on
how service could be im
proved as well as any com
plaints that they might have.
A new passenger elevator
now is being installed in the
west part of the building near
the music room. It will be
completed over Thanksgiving
vacation and will serve all
four floors.
