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 Health. 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. Representatives 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. discussions and meetings atives from seven campus held with th MiiictyV ffiEtffiganfcations, student rep- the LIBRARY If n n m Tournament Time Campus Set For Prep Invasion Batten the hatches; the torrent begins! Beware, the invasion, of Nebraska high schoolers will converge upon the campus DasKetDau tourney. Tircy will multiply in numbers until Satur day afternoon when a University student will look out of place on the campus. One of the main targets for many of the high school fans NU Gets Land Sale Approval Twenty Acre Tract, Fruit Farm. To Go Bills providing for the sale of the University's 80-acre fruit farm and a 20-acre tract of Indian school land have been amended and advanced a notch in legislative comit- tees. The Unicameral's Educa tion Committee voted 9-0 to send the two bills, LB437 and LB510 to the floor. LB437, as amended, would provide that the fruit farm be sold at auction, and LB 510, the 20-acre tract, be sold to the city of Genoa. University officials say the fruit farm is no longer need ed for horticulture research which can be done more economically in cooperation with commercial growers and at the Mead Ordinance plant, where negotiations for acquisition of land are pend ing. The city of Genoa has indi cated it will use the 20-acre tract of land for new build ing sites.

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.

Tour Orientation All foreign students who are interested in the For eign Student tour of Nebras ka and did not attend the orientation meeting held last week are asked to meet at 4 p.m. in 234 S t u d e n t Union today. 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 Milk "We couldnt mflk our cows," exclaimed Dr. Kelly. Elsewhere on campus, efficiency in of fice and class work was at a low ebb without electricity to run typewriters, mimeographs and to light rooms. Flashlights and candle were in order in the Ag .Student Union when all the power went off. The cash register, coffee urn, pop machines, and television were among the numerous casualties of the power cut off. Silvia McNeil of the Ag Union pointed ' out that the Del, while quiet and dim, was very busy during the blackout with staff and office people who came over for a cof fee break from their offices where it was too dark to work. "Luckily we prepared enough coffee in advance of the power cut off to see us through the extra business," said Mrs. McNeiL standing of, and convictions of the purpose and ways of work of the YWCA and YMCA.

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.
