For Students To Stop Smoking

If you want to shed your
smoker's hack, hop over to
the Nebraska Center Sunday
A Five-Day Plan to quit
smoking will be presented at
the Nebraska Center begin
ning next week.
The program, to get under
way Sunday, will run its com
plete course by March 5.
Each meeting is at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is free.
Films, lectures, and demon
strations, all showing people
how to stop smoking, will
highlight the events.
Owing to a centering of nation-wide
interest upon cigarette-smoking,
the Union Col
lege Health Department and
the Lincoln Seventh-Day Ad
ventist churches, sponsors,
are urging this educational
program to alert U.S. citizens
to the effects of smoking on
the human body.
Five consecutive group ther
apy sessions, lasting for about
an hour each evening, include
lectures on the physioiogial
as well as psychological as
pects of the smoking prob
lem. This phase will be con
ducted by a physician-clergyman
Exchanges of experiences
by participants in the Five
Day Plan will supplement
films and demonstrations.
In addition, a special book
let, entitled "Your Five-Day
Plan", gives tips on how to
relax, when and how to exer
cise, what to eat and drink,
and what to think about dur
ing crucial moments.
Elman J. Folkenberg and
Alfred O. Mazat, M.D., will
direct the program.
Mr. Folkenberg, co-author
of "Five-Day Plan to Stop
Smoking," specializes in the
psychological aspects of
breaking the smoking habit.
He declares the plan to be "A
comprehensive sensible way
of breaking the habit in five
Dr. Mazat, staff member of
the Porter Sanitarium and
Hospital in Denver, says,
Smoking is a complex neuro
muscular habit which can be
far more easily broken if cer
tain physical laws are under
stood." The Plan, now in its fourth
year, has been able to reveal
through statistics that, of
those who complete the pro
gram, 40-0 have attained
permanent success.
In addition, those participa
ting in the program can look
forward to a 50 chance that
after the third day they will
have lost their craving for to
bacco. At the end of the fifth
session, 70-75 of all partici
pants have been found to have
go lost such desires.
The innovation was held last
at Hunters College, where 1600
smokers were involved in the
program. It is expected that
approximately 1700 will be in
attendance here.
porter will cover the program,
and give his daily reactions in
the paper as to how he is af
fected by the plan.
According to Dr. S. I. Fuen
ning, Student Health medical
director the program is
"basically an educational pro
gram; at the same time . . .
provides group support for
people to change their habits,
and has been of help to a good
number of people."
Past reactions from people
dreaming of once again hav
ing mighty chests and long
wind have been interesting.
"Yesterday I thought I had
been scalped," claimed one
participant. "The whole top of

At work, avoid friends who

three more glasses of water

Keep drinking during the
afternoon, and call a "buddy"

University students will
probably travel to St. Louis.
An attempt will be made to

Council Action Streamlines
Student Election Regulations
Student Council yesterday
streamlined its election by
laws, passing a motion by
Susie Pierce, second vice
president, which eliminated
obsolete passages and clari
fied ambiguous voting rules.
President Dennis Christie
reminded the Council that
only nine meetings remain,
and that the remainder of the
year will determine the suc
cess of the Council's work. He
called for work and sacrifice
from the Council members
and outlined some of the
projects that merit strong at
tention during the next nine
Significant in the election
law changes was the alterna
tion in the section which de
prives a college from all
representation in a Student
Council election if it fails to
produce the maximum num
ber of candidates allowed to
it under the present repre
sentation rules.
The law was changed to
allow unopposed candidates
to take office, but causes the
college to lose its right to
further representation during
the year in question.
"No other elective body
in existance is set up so that
it loses representation for not
having the maximum number
of candidates," said Miss
Added to the by-laws was
a measure allowing for the
election committee to define
"campaigning." A preceding
law states that there must be
no campaigning on election
day. Miss Pierce said that
campaigning outside of the
Union, where voting takes
place, is important in many
students' campaigns, and that
the law should be clarified.
Student Council Organiza
tional representatives must
be elected before March 27
and the filing date for the
general election is Apr. 6.
Christie, in his list of goals
for the remainder of the
year, cited representation, the
Big Eight charter flight, the
ticket problem and grade re
ports as areas in which the
Council will prove itself.
Representation, he indi
cated, is a crucial area. "We
need a change, some way,
somehow, in our present sys
tem," he said. '
He continued that mora
work is planned with James
Pittenger, athletic ticket
manager, for the purpose oi
resolving the shortage felt by
many students during the 1963
football season.
The Big Eight charter flight
to Europe, Christie said, is a
tremendous opportunity fo?
University students who want
to go to Europe and save
money. He said that the stu
dent body must be contacted
and acquainted with the ad
vantages of the chartered

The twenty-first presentation of the Associated Women
Students (AWS) Coed Follies this week promises to be
an impressive display of college talent, but it will lack a
great deal of color which was given it in the past when
men were not allowed to attend.
Until 1953 the Follies were for coeds only. The pro
gram was seldom held without interruption, for, accord
ing to rumor, an unofficial contest was staged among
the fraternities to see which one could smuggle the most
men into the theatre.
With the aid of bobby socks, make-up and sweaters,
the men disguised themselves, and, according to past is
sues of the DAILY NEBRASKAN, some of them were very
In the early fifties the men became more rowdy, and
the police occasionally were forced to evict a male whose
identity was discovered.
Other men, not so ingenious but more daring, would
hide beneath the seats in the threatre, aided by their girl
friends, and a report of the 1952 Follies tells of one young
man who emerged, red faced and puffing, halfway
through the program, and walked out. "It's too hot; I
can't stand it in there," was his only explanation.
Student Council passed a motion recommending that
men be admitted to the Follies after a 1952 riot in which
police battled 500 males desiring to enter the inner sanc
tum. The motion passed and was referred to AWS, and
the next year saw the first legalized entry of males into
the Follies.
During the 1930's and 40's a feature event of the show
was a style show, and a "Best Dressed Girl" was elected.
This honor evolved into "Typical Nebraska Coed" (TNC)
in the 50's and is the forerunner of today's "Ideal Ne
braska Coed."
During World War II the Follies, in keeping with the
wartime spirit, limited expenses on skits to $15. The rules
for judging the "Best Dressed Girl" included a provision
that she must show an interest in wartime activities.
The skits were built around a theme of war, empha
sizing both the serious and funny parts of war.
The presentation of the "Best Dressed Girl" was often
surrounded with pomp and ceremony, as well as closely
guarded secrecy. The Account of the 1943 presentation from
the DAILY NEBRASKAN files says "Directly following
the style show in which 19 girls modeled, the stage re
volved to reveal a good looking male (pasteboard, howev
er) with an enormous drum beside him.
"The drum broke and TNC Helen (Johnsen) stepped
forth. She wore a white sports dress with a black chester
field collar."

A BILLBOARD? That's what those girls are, folks, or
at least are pretending to be. They are the billboards
painted by the dedicated Herkimer Finkniggle (the
spelling is questionable.) These coeds are practicing the
Gamma Phi Beta skit, "Baubles, Bangles and Bill
boards," to be presented at the AWS Coed Follies Friday.
On the right, playing the billboard part, are, left to right,
Jodeen Mueller, Linda Booth, JoAnn Armstrong, Diane
Michael and Janet Rahn. The fanatic billboard painter
on the right is Mary Thorpe.
