A man who has declared war on
naked animals, G. Clifford Prout, will be
on the University camous during March
expanding his drive to clothe all "vital
areas" of animslas. 1
As president of the Society for Inde
cency to Naked Animals (SINA), Prout
has dedicated 10 years of his life to that
purpose. .
According to a letter from SINA he
wants dogs to wear pants and horses to
wear halfslips. He's designed bikinis for
cows and even trouser for elephants.
"It's a matter of decency," Prout
explains. "Naked animals are ruining
the moral standards of America."
It's more than a fight for decency,
however, Prout also has a deadline to
The campaign against unclothes Ani
mals began in 1956 when he received
$400,000 in his father's will.
The money had to be spent within 10
years, according to the terms of the will,
and it had to be used for "improving the
moral climate of animals. "
Prout immediately formed SINA with
headquarters at 507 Fifth Avenue, New
York City, and began preaching for
clothed animals.
Article IV of SINA's Constitution
"Be it resolved that the members of
SINA shall devote their time and energy
to clothe all naked animals that appear
in public, namely horses, cows, dogs and
cats, including any animal that stands
higher than 4 inches or is longer than six
At first, Prout said in a press re
lease, nobody realized what a menace
naked animals really are.
"People went to zoos and leered at
naked gorillas and monkeys without know
Illemme: Don't Fight
Science, Cities, Skill
In an address to the Gov
ernor's Conference on Com
munity Betterment yester
day, Dr. Randall Klemme,
vice president of Northern
Natural Gas of Omaha, said
that Nebraska cannot escape
three factors which are
changing the way of life of
our nation.
These factors are the age
of science, the age of trained
manpower and a time of ur
banization. Dr. Klemme said that in
the age of science, "Research
and development of all indus

Concerning the age of
trained manpower, he said,
"the number of skilled work
ers in the nation and Nebras
ka is declining. Men of skill
and good education must
grow. The local community
must provide the vocational
training facilities in trade
schools, and must meet the
needs of universities capable
of equiping young people and
"We must learn to plan to
gether much better for the
influx of people in cities and
we must provide an atmos
phere now for the action that
must folio w," said Dr.
Klemme concerning a time
of urbanization.
Commenting on agriculture
Klemme said, "In 1900, the
country's farm population
amounted to 35 of the to
tal, now it is about 12. In
1900, the farmer supported
about six persons, now each
farmer supports 23, and the
technological advances in ag
riculture continues."
He stated that our objec
tives should be to provide
economic opportunities but
not to forget the tangible and
intangible things that form
together to provide enjoyable
"Our society is in a con
stant state of change, but in
this state of change, we must
gear our development p r o

not fight the change."
Lost, Found Location
Now Nebraska Hall
The University lost and
found department has been
moved from the Old Admin
istration Building to the 16th
St. entrance of Nebraska Hall
(Elgin Building).
The move came as a result
of plans to demolish the Old
Administration Building to
provide landscaping for the

ing that these animals were undermining
their morals."
"A mounted policeman in Central
Park gave me a summons for speaking
without a permit," he said.
"I retaliated by giving the cop a
SINA summons for contributing to the
delinquency of his horse."
The SINA summons has a picture of
a trousered horse on its cover.
Then as he distributed his weekly
newsletter he began to meet with more
success, the release says.
"We now have 400,000 members from
coast to coast," he said. "We distribute
patterns for animal clothing through the
mail and SINA has 14 emergency clothes
mobiles to rush into any area where ani
mal morality is low," he reported.
Prout believes that all animals have
a built in sense of modesty and that they
prefer to wear clothes.
"People who don't clothe their animals
are at fault," he said.
Last August in San Francisco he frus
trated 'zoo officials with his comments,
the release said.
"San Francisco is a moral disaster
area," he said. "There are over 700,000
naked animals running around loose."
"The animals are very happy without
clothes," retorted Mrs. Judith Lambert
of the Children's Playground in the zoo,
"and people are used to it and think
nothing of it."
Nevertheless, Prout is optimistic and
will carry the tida of the battle to Lin
coln in March.
"The day isn't far off when every
four-legged animal over four inches tall
and six inches long will be decently
Till-Plant System
To Limit Plowing
To Certain Crops
Research at the University
indicates that the moldboard
plow, long a symbol of Ne
braska agriculture, may be
come obsolete, according to
Howard Wittmuss, associate
professor of agricultural en
gineering at the University.
The till-plant s y s t e m has
eliminated the necessity of
plowing under continuous
corn production, reducing la
bor requirements and costs of
tillage 50 per cent and soil
losses by 65 per cent, t h e
University engineer stated.
Yields on land under the till
plant system for the past
three years have increased by
10 bushels per acre, he add
ed. i
Plowing also has been
eliminated in the corn-alfalfa
rotation scheme in NU field
trials. This has included es
tablishing corn in old alfalfa
fields without prior tillage as
well as the establishment of
new alfalfa stands in growing
corn. '
"The till-plant system has
been used successfully to
produce sorghum, soybeans
and castorbeans, if such prac
tices are universally accept
ed, the use of the plow
will be restricted to a
few specialty crops such as
sugar beets, potatoes and
field beans," Wittmuss pre
dicted. Increased interest by farm
ers in smoothing land sur
faces to make farming easier
can be expected in the fu
ture, Wittmuss said.
A short course designed to
place emphasis on proper con
servation and use of Nebras
ka's ground water is planned
at the Nebraska Center for
Continuing Education March
The program will be spon
sored by the University of
Nebraska's department of civ
il engineering and Conserva
tion and Survey Division.
National authorities on the
subject will be members of
the short-course staff.
