Tryouts Tonight
For Coed Follies
Five skits will be chosen to
night at Coed Follies try
outs for presentation in the
AWS sponsored "Hits 'n
Misses" Folly show Feb. 28,
In view of the present day
glamour and feverish prepar-
ation which go into the pre
paration of a skit for Coed
Follies, it is interesting to
know that originally the skits
were of secondary im
portance to the show.
The big feature, was a style
show of the latest fads and
fashions. The candidates for
Ideal Nebraska Coed were
the models and the Coed was
chosen on her modeling ap
pearance. The skits served as
intermissions similar to the
traveling acts of todays show.
The "Follies" were present
ed on two different evenings
in the Nebraska Theater and
only females were allowed to
enjoy the show.
A paragraph discovered in
a February, 1943, Dally Ne
braskan indicated an on
Jection to this rule. It stated,
"Sad but true this annual
event is still barred from the
boys oa campus."
The sponsoring or
ganization, AWS, pave way to
popular demand in 1934 and
opened the show to the pub
lib. It was received with such
enthusiasm that Coed Follies

Foreign Affairs Views
Nebraskans will be given a
chance to voice opinions on
foreign affairs directly to gov

The University recently an
nounced the formation of a
statewide campaign to give
Nebraskans the chance to
voice their opinions on for
eign affairs and the crop
surplus question.
The opinions of these Ne
braskans will go directly to
U.S. foreign officials, sena
tors and representatives.
A yet undetermined num
ber of groups of laymen in
cluding farmers, teachers,
businessmen, profts
ional men and housewives
are expected to take part in
discussions and balloting
throughout the state.
The Extension Division and
the Agricultural . Extension
Service at the tJniversity have
joined forces to promote and
administer the balloting. In
addition, steps have been
taken by Dr. Everett Peter
son and Dr. Otto Hoiberg,
University faculty members,
to aid those who will form
the first discussion groups.

than any other organization.
The total amount was 5144.68.
Six girls from each house
participated under the direc
tion of Sharon Rogers, com
munity service chairman,
who organized the event.
Ordinarily a trophy would

not accept trophies or plaque
The other popular print
media are intaglio, etchings,
engravings, acquaints, dry
points, and combinations of
these, and the planographic,
better known as lithography.
The Art Galleries invited
10 best known American prac
titioners in the media to ex
hibit from one to five prints,
Geske said. In addition each
of those 10 was invited to
nominate one additional art-
ist whose work they believed
to be of interest.
Younger Artists

that of well-known artists as
well as younger artists whose
work may indicate the direc
tion which future develop

NROTC Contracts Criticized
Kansan Says Non-Marriage Clause Should Go
' -A recent editorial appearing in the Daily
Kansan severely criticized the non-mar-
' riage clause in Navy ROTC contracts.
, The Clause, which forbids Navy ROTC
students to be married before receiving
their commission upon graduation, should
. have been "thrown out with the use of
Grog," according to the editorial.
Young men entering the Navy program
in college are not capable of knowing
whether they wlil escape marriage or not,
the Kansan suggests.
Capt. James R. Hansen, USN, professor
of naval science, commented freely on the
editorial in the Kansan, and explained the
legal and naval stipulations and obliga
tions upon signing of a Navy ROTC non
marriage contract. ,
"I have been asked to comment on the
" reason for the non-marriage clause in the
NROTC legal contract. This undergradu
ate restriction has never become a serious
issae or conflict with our program because
the young men who enter the NROTC are
norm'v mature and responsible persons
who are fully cognizrnt of these restric-
' tipns, and they agree to such limitations
of their own volition.
. '-The U.S. Navy has had many years of
past experience associated rith. the ds-
' mands' and requirements placed on newly
commissioned naval officers. It has been
found that an unmarried midshipman can
adapt and adjust himself much- more
readily to Navy ! shipboard life; than a

inexhaustible interest in his
course of study and is recog
nized as one of the Univer

German honorary, recepient
bf scholarships in 1959 and
1960 and has been nominated
for a Fulbright scholarship
for the academic year 1960-61.
He has served as a reading

The issue is then, whether
