American scholar, humorist,
and poet, will visit the Uni

society has announced that
anyone interested may attend.
Those wishing to attend the
dinner, however, should make
reservations by tomorrow at
University extension 2770.
The subject of his PBK ad
dress is "Pascal and the
Creative Mind," a topic which
should carry the explanation

developed the mathematical
law of probabilities, much to
the satisfaction of poker play
ers and other scientists.
Professor Bishop will speak

Its Theory and Practice."

latter financed by a Ford
Foundation grant.
hedges Initiated
Two fraternity pledges re
ceived waivers last night at
the Interfraternity Council
(IFC) meeting which focused
mainly on waivers.
A waiver was defined by
IFC president, Tom Brewster,
as an act performed by the
IFC which deals with the
eligilibilty of a fraternity
pledge for initiation.
Should a pledge not make
the required IFC standard for
initation, (5.0), he would not
usually be initated. However,
in special cases a pledge is
given the right to be initiated.
These "special cases" in
clude situations such as
hardship, financial problems,
or family difficulties.
The pledges are Bill Yoesel,
Acacia fraternity, and Ted
McConaughey, Kappa Sigma.
McConaughey's case was a
special consideration due to
the fact that he now holds an
average over 5.0. IFC laws
however, had ruled him in

DAILY NEBRASKAN staff writer, had difficulty turning
down cigarettes when he first began the five-day plan to
'Ex-Smoker' Nears
By Frank Partsch
Senior Staff Writer
The first question that oc
curs to many of us when we
resolve to quit smoking is
whether to quit abruptly or
to taper off.
E. J. Folkenberg, one of the
co-sponsors of the Five Day
Plan to Stop Smoking, has a
ready answer to the question.
He tells a story about a man
who felt compelled to cut the
tail from his little dog.
Rather than subjecting the
animal to the pain of having
the whole tail removed at one
slice, he cut it off inch by
inch to spare the pain.
Anyone who is addicted to
cigarettes has felt some de
gree of discomfort compar
able to what toe puppy goes
through. Their reactions are
sometimes grotesque, such as

times just depression.
Folkenberg went around the
auditorium Tuesday night and
asked some of the reformed
smokers to describe the symp
toms that accompanied their
release from nicotine.
One woman related that the
first day was easy until late
afternoon, when she felt a
strong urge for a cigarette.
She promptly remembered
the buddy system and rushed
over to talk to her "buddy."
"Did that help you?" asked
Folkenberg, his face lighting
"Yes," she answered quick
ly. "We went out and had a
cigarette together."
Another woman told about
how she went for two days
without smoking and finally
yielded to the urge and lit up.
"How did it taste to you?"
said Folkenberg hopefully.
"Real go-o-o-od," she said.

Morale is good, however,
and the greater number of
the "patients" seem to be re

ly. The controlled diet, which
eliminates foods that stimu

strong factor in the treatment.
In addition, the deep breath
ing and the "magic phrase"
provide additional weapons
with which to fight tempta

slight in comparison to some
of the trials my comrades in

Later Hours Claim
Approval By Many
By Barb Berney
and Nancy Anderson
"Definitely a step forward.
It seems rather curious that
Nebraska men are on their
own, while women are
deemed incapable of handling
themselves," said Mike Bar
ton, one of the many young
men left twiddling their
thumbs at 10:35 p.m. "But
apparently girls have ma
tured within the last year, be
cause they have been re
warded with 1,800 more sec
onds of responsibility.
I look forward to the day
when the University will de
sist from legislating morals
reminiscent of the Victorian
Era, said Barton. I'm sur
prised AWS hasn't tried to
approve all pinnings and en
gagements." This and the following opin
ions resulted from the recent
change . of junior women's
hours from 10:30 p.m. to 11
p.m., effective next fall. Other
opinions were similar to Bar
ton's. Charles Miller, a junior in
Arts and Science feels that
the new 11 p.m. hours are
good. He thinks that any girl,
by the time she is a junior,
knows what she wants out of
Cheryl Moss, freshman, be
lieves the 11 p.m. hours are
a good idea because more in
dividualism is stressed.
"I think it's all right and
that it should have happened
a long time ago," said Mark
Ramaekers, sophomore. "Al
so, I believe, that sophomores
should have been included in
this new change."

senior in Engineering ex
pressed, "Actually It doesn't

coholic beverages are prohib

My second problem is a
horrible compulsion to smoke
anything that will burn.
Luckily the urge comes only
once a day, but it comes then
with a rush that is complete

tal block, and, as of yet, I

I think it's a real good idea
and I'd be willing to go along
with it!"
A Phi Delta Theta alum,
Bob Schrepf stated, "Glad to
see they're liberalizing it.
I'm certainly in favor of it.
However, I think they could
even be extended to mid
night." An anonymous AWS Board
member told the DAILY NE
BRASKAN that the reason
that this finally came about
was because Dean Snyder has
had many 21 year old junior
women coming in and re
questing extended hours for
various reasons. She finally
decided to bring this matter
before the AWS Board, who
in turn considered it and
passed it.
Bill Neater, a junior in Bus
iness Administration states
his opinion this way, "It's
fine with me. I think it's a
fine incentive. It gives them
something to look forward to,
being juniors."
Bill Pfeiff, senior in Teach
ers College summed up the
majority of the student's opin
ions as follows, "I believe
that this is a step in the right
direction. Hours should be ex
tended to all girls who have
proved themselves scholasti-
One lone junior woman
bravely expressed her opin
ion contrary to the others. "I
don't think hours should be
extended," said the junior.
"There is a tendency to slough
off and not get your studies
done. We're here for going
to school, and you should be
"However, seniors should
have more privileges than
juniors and both more priv
ileges than freshmen."
Weekend Matches
Are A Possibility
Student Council yesterday
passed a motion introduced
by Doug Thorn allowing them
to sponsor a Quiz Bowl dele
gation to the Big Eight Quiz
Bowl in Norman, Okla., on
Saturday, May 2.
Thorn told the Council that
the University quiz bowl pro
gram will have to rearranged
in order to have a winner
in time for the Conference
competition. Dan Wherry,
chairman of the Quiz Bowl
Committee said that addition
al matches might be held on
weekends in order to bring
the matches to a close by
May 2.
The winning team from the
University will represent Ne
braska at Norman, accord
ing to Thorn, rather than the
team consisting of outstanding
individuals as original
ly planned.
