    Birth or Death Today Campus Health Council
By Ann Moyer
The constitution of a new
campus organization to be
known as the Campus
Health Council will come
before the Student Council
today for final considera
tion. The purpose of the Health
Council, according to Dr.
Samuel Fuenning, director
of Student Health, would be
to promote general health
on the campus through spe
cial activities and pro
grams. The Health Council would
also serve to recognize and
coordinate all student health
organizations such as the
student branch of the Amer
ican Cancer Society.
The idea for the council
originated at the time the
plans for the Health Center
were being formulated. In
an attempt to discover what
facilities and programs Uni
versity students wanted in
the new center, a question
naire was distributed among
the students.
Liaison Group
One area in which the
questionnaire showed a -high
interest was the desire for
some type of coordinating
or liaison group between the
individual organizations or
housing units and Student
The plan was dormant un
til last year when the Amer
ican Cancer group indicated
an interest in forming a
student branch on the cam
pus. Several students noted
the need for a coordinating
council at that time, Dr.
Fuenning said.
As a result of a series of
man of various organiza
tions, the Health Council
constitution was drawn up
and presented to the Stu
dent Council for approval
The constitution has come
before the Council twice in
recent weeks but has been
returned for minor changes.
Health Council represent
resentatives from voluntary
health organizations such as
the Cancer group and rep
resentatives from other aux
ilary student organizations
will be members of the
Health Council. .
The seven campus organ
izations having representa
tives would include the IFC
Council, Panhellenic Coun
cil, Selleck Quadrangle
(RAM), Residence Han for
Women, Burr Hall, Fedde
and Love Memorial Halls
and the Inter Coop Council.
A medical board consist
ing of interested physicans
from the Student Health
staff and Lincoln would act
in an advisory capacity to
the Health Council. '
Dr. Fuenning remarked
that to his knowledge "an
organization such as the
Campus Health Council
would not only be a first
on our campus but also
among other universities."
Dr. Fuenning said It wai
hoped the Health Council
would get organized this
spring and begin operations
in the fall
However, he added, furth
er action depends upon to
day's action by the Student
Council in regard to the
Health Council constitution.

Blackout Slows Ag Operations
By Jim Forrest
It is better to light one candle than to
stumble around a lightless campus on a
cloudy day.
This was the predominate feeling on Ag
Campus yesterday as the University power
station cut off all power to the campus
in order to repair the broken power pole
on 36th street.
The pole was broken last weekend when
a car carrying four Uninversity students
swerved off the road and crashed into
the pole, severing powerlines.
Warned in advance by Paul Owen, public
power engineer, the . electricity was shut
off a little after 1 p.m. while a crew of
electricians worked to put in a new pole
and replace the power lines between three
poles that "were severed in the accident.
Slow Operations
With the lights out until nearly 5 p.m.
Tuesday afternoon, many of the research
ers and department staffs on Ag campus
were forced to either slow operations
down to almost a stand still or suspend
'work altogether.
Most of the headaches were found in the
animal pathology and dairy husbandry de
partments where refrigeration equipment
was inoperative for nearly four hours.

To prevent spoilage and damage to the
refrigerated contents, the doors to the
nnits were kept shut and were not opened
the entire time.
The biggest problem in the dairy depart
ment, according to Dr. Philip Kelly, de
partment chairman, was the lack of power
to run the electric milkers. -No

Dr. Kelly.
Elsewhere on campus, efficiency in of

'I was very happy and

that I was one of the stu
dents," said Preston, "I had
been waiting about two
months. The question of un
certainty was finally an
swered." Main Purpose
"My main purpose in mak
ing the trip is so that I will
be able to relate my exper
iences to the students and
student organizations on the
campus next fall," he said.
The main purpose as ex
pressed by the National Stu
dent Councils of the YWCA and
YMCA which coincides with
Preston's is to interpret our
own society and to share our
convictions on a person-to-
person basis. This is an es
sential part of the effort to
break through the barriers
which separate Soviet and
American societies.
Also, the exchange tour is
to develop the program and
leadership of the YWCA and
YMCA movements in the
area of international rela
tions. The Soviet group that will
