Mrs. Abel also emphasized the need for providing work opportunities for young Ne braskans and proper exploita tion of the state's natural re sources, particularly water. A graduate of the Univer sity of Nebraska, Mrs. Abel was the first Nebraska wom an and third in history to be elected to the U.S. Senate.

Varied Experience "We feel that Vice Presi dent Nixon is the most quali fied candidate our nation has had for many years," Rod gers said. "His administrative experi ence includes serving as offi cial representative of the U.S. government in over 50 foreign countries including the U.S. S.R. and the administration of the President's duties in his absences." "He has had legislative ex perience in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate where he has made many noteworthy contribu tions,' Rodgers added. At the present time the farm situation merits the se lection of a Mid-Westerner as Vice President, he said. Secretary of the Interior Seaton is a Nebraskan and knows the problems of the Ne braska farmer. "We know of no better candidate for Vice President than the Secre tary," Rodgers stated. Publisher Seaton is the publisher of a Hastings newspaper. Officers will be elected at the meeting this week and many of the coming activities will be planned at that time. Anyone interested in help ing to elect Vice President Nixon and Secretary Seaton is urged to attend, Rodgers said.

Males, Too Nor is orchesis exclusively for girls. Male students are always welcomed by the club. Males who might scoff and think it sissy might remem ber that the great Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne gave his big, husky but clumsy men of the grid iron lessons to improve their co-ordination. Rough Moneywise reached won't surprise you. The winter has been an ex pensive and physically tax ing one. It's been rough' very rough on certain parts of the budget. Although a total and ac curate estimate of the in creased cost of this winter compared with last year is not possible, here are a few observations by Paul Owen, power plant engineer, and Chet Billings, landscape architect: Snow removal alone has already cost the University over $3,500 more than last year; The increased cost of heating the physical plant alone, will reach $12,000; The increase use of elec trical power measures 15 per cent. But this is only the be ginning. The nearly 5 per cent increase in gas cou pled .with the cold weather might turn out to be minor considerations and the iron ic part of it all is that it might be the result of warm weather, too. Billings pointed out that the cankerworm (a species of worm that feeds on the leaves of shade trees) is at work. The pleasant warm spell during December gave the female worms a chance to get up the trees before his men had a chance to ring the trees. "You can't estimate the damage those worms can o this spring and sum mer," he said. In addition to this trouble. LINCOLN, Herman Contracted J. Wr w-j TJMlK' il jjP-.ll1H1.l. tf-' '""II Illl I This University's Orchesis group focuses its work on the annual spring show to be given Friday. Here is a chance for members to dem onstrate the abilities they have learned, and for the rest of the student body to see how graceful, and meaning ful, movement can be. "Omnia Momentia" is the title of the show to be giv en 8 p.m. March 11 in Howell Theatre. The cast includes 20 members of Orchesis, nine of the pre-orchesis group, a group from a P.E. dance class and several men. 'All Movement' The theme of the show is the severe temperature variations during December caused expansion and con traction of cracks and fis sures in some buildings. Architects as well as ge ologists explained that this is not the kind of damage yon notice immediately, but is the kind of weathering that substantially shortens the life of most buildings whether they be made of wood or stone. Add these troubles to those of transportation and the repair and replacement of hard worked equipment and you'll begin to get the idea. You don't have to be a high-powered economist to figure out the cost Ne braska winters could be do ing more damage for years after they occur. YDs Schedule Bates to Talk Young Democrats will meet tonight at 8 p.m. in 323 Stu dent Union. Tentative plans are for Charles Bates, Democratic candidate for governor, to speak. Tickets for the Democratic Workshop to be held April 2 are now available to students, according to Don Ferguson, publicity chairman. They may be purchased from Dick Robson, finance chairman, for a special stu dent price. Rnbson may be contacted at the Delta Tau fraternity house. NEBRASKA This year's Interfraternity Council Ball will star Woody Herman and band at Per shing Auditorium, Mar. 18. Herman, who has recently signed with Capitol Records, is one of the most popular bandleaders and recording artists in the music business, according to IFC social chair man, Ben Prieb. Girl Vocalist Herman, who sings and plays the clarinet and alto saxophone himself, will pre sent his entire orchestra of 17 instrumentalists and a girl vocalist, at the Ball. According to Prieb, Her man's band will come direct from successful engagements at the Blue Note Club in Chi cago, the Palladium Ballroom in Hollywood, and Basin Street in New York. "The Ball will be open only to fraternity members and invited guests," said Prieb. "The tickets, for the Ball will be distributed at the first of next week to each fraternity man." Proration The tickets, which are pro rated at $2 per man because of last year's $300 loss, are to be presented at Pershing the night of the dance along with the student's I. D. card for admission. "By making every fratern ity member buy a ticket be fore the Ball, it is assumed that more interest will be shown in attending," said the social chairman. "It will also keep the IFC from suffering described best by the title, which means "all move ment." Impressions of move ment are given of people, places and things the world over. The spring show is by no means the only project of the dance group. Earlier this year they presented a half hour TV show, visually ex plaining the club over KUON. Members of the group are also prominently found in chorus lines of campus shows from the Coed Follies to the Kosmet Klub musicals. A show is also to be given to the Newcomers Club Apr. 15. Orchesis gets under way soon after school starts in the fall. Tryouts are held for stu dents interested in member ship. Several instruction pe riods are given, then active members choose the most talented to join. Other girls who need more experience may join a pre-orchesis group, which usually meets the same time and place. A formal initiation tea wel comes the new members. Meetings are held one eve ning per week. The basic theories and ideas of dance and movement are taught and practiced. They learn how to interpret feeling, moods and ideas with their bodies. For example, the amotional mood anger would be shown by cmick sham movements, sudden thrusting of hands and legs. A feeling of tiredness uses slow, sweep ing movement. Body control is acquired only by practice, and that is what these girls do. Under the direction of Mr. De Hughes and his wife, thev have put in almost 10 hours of practice for this Friday's show. Costumes are basically black leotards, with small additions such as hats and skirts added to heto set the mood. Little scenery is used, in order not to detract from the dance. Provide Music Music is provided both by records and piano. In the dance "Breakers at the Seashore" performers don green and blue striped skirts as they emulate the rolling waves. One of the dances is oriental, with the silted move ments of the emotionless Far East. The finale, "The Mar tyr", is a highly emotional piece performed to the mu sic of "The Robe."

Approval of the time for the dance (9 p.m. -1 a.m.) and the extension of coed hours by the Division of Student Affairs is expected this week, said Prieb. The social chairman went on to say that this year the Ball should have a much im proved attendance over last year's mark of 200 couples. "Every fraternity member should go," he commented. "He would be crazy not to after paying $2 for tickets."
