Governor Speaks
On Youth Safety
"The only way to have great
satisfaction out of life is to
live. There are many things
to enjoy but you can't enjoy
them if you're dead!"
These thoughts were given
to 300 high school students
from all over Nebraska Sat
urday as Gov. Frank Morri
son welcomed them to the
fourth annual Governor's
Youth Safety Conference, held
at the Nebraska Center for
Continuing Education.
Manley Will Address
International Students
A series of talks by Dr.
Robert Manley, assistant pro
fessor of history, has been
scheduled by the Nebraska
International Association.
They will begin Sunday at
2:30 p.m. in the Nebraska
Morrison told the students
that 5,800 teen-agers have
been involved in accidents so
far in 1904. Of these acci
dents, fifty-two involved a fa
tality, he said.
According to Morrison,
"Every one of us is in danger
when we go out on the high
ways." He suggested two things
which the delegates might do
to help the traffic safety pro
gram. "First," he said, "be
careful of your own driving."
His second point was that
the delegates start a crusade.
He told them to take safety
back to their respective com
munities in the form of safety
programs for their schools an
their whole communities.
"Let adults defile each oth
er if they will," said Morri
son, "but let youth turn the
tide of history."

Rootworm Insecticides Tested
The chances of western
corn rootworms pulling an
other sneak play on Nebras
ka farmers, as they did when
they refused to be controlled
by chemicals in use in 1960
and 1961, are practically nil.
Dr. Harold Ball, profes
sor of entomology, is watch
ing them.
In 1964 more than 20,000
western corn rootworm bee
tles from 20 different sites
in the corn producing areas
of the state were tested in
Ball's laboratory for resis
tance to the various rootworm
"During the first three
years of these studies we
have found no resistance to
the new phosphate chemicals
such as Diazinon and Thimet,
Ballt said. "If such a resist
ance starts to show up, we
should have some new chemi
cals in reserve that we hope
will fill the breach."
Ball does not yet have his
figures pulled together for an
authoritative statement on
1964 results, but figures from
previous years are enlighten
ing, he said.
The program started in a
small way in 1961. Robert
Roselle, Extension entomo
logist, had first noticed some!
cases of ineffective control in j
1959. This failure of recom
mended insecticides became j
increasingly serious in 1960
and 1961.
The resistant rootworms
showed up first in Nebraska j
because, Ball explained, "No!
other area in the United States j
had been so consistently ex-i
posed to the use of chlori
nated hydrocarbon insecticide
for rootworm control.
"The total area treated in,
Nebraska in 1954. 1,740,000
acres was almost three times
as great as the acreage
treated in Iowa."
The 1961 program consisted
of treating beetles from two
sites, one from the central
part of the state near Aurora,
the other in the eastern
part of the state near Ash
land. The beetles are collected
from corn plants with a
specially designed vacuum
cleaner. About 1,000 beetles
arc collected from each site
and taken to Lincoln in hold
ing cages.
Two people traveled several
thousand miles in a short
time this year collecting and
delivering the beetles to Ball.
In the laboratory, four grad
uate assistants do the tedious
work of treating each individ
aul beetle, 20,000 in 1964, with
varying amounts of the dif
ferent insecticides being
The insecticices are applied
in one microliter, (about
one-twentieth the size of an
ordinary drop of water) of
acetone, containing the
amount of insecticide desired.
Twenty insects are used in
each treatment dose and
placed in a covered dish. The
dead beetles are then counted
at the end of a specified
period 24 hours for Aldrin
and the other chlorinated hy
drocarbons and 2 hours for
the phosphates, such as Dai
rmor.. Bali uses an ingenious de
vice for applying the insecti
cide. His micro applicator uses
a small syringe which is
pushed by a micrometer to
meter out the exact amount
of insecticide desired.
A suction device was de
veloped for handling the bee
tles without-damaging them.
Ball has found a wide varia
tion in the resistance of the
rootworms according to the
locality where the beetles
were gathered.
Rootworm beetles from
Cliase County have shown the
last resistance to Aldrin. Us
ing Chase County to set a
base number of 1, Ball,
charted the differences from
the next low of 44 in Saline
County to the high of 1,847
in Buffalo County in 1963.
This means the western
corn rootworm was 1,847
times as resistant to Aldrin
in Buffalo County as it was
in Chase County.
Translating the figures for
micrograms of insecticide
needed to kill each insect into
micrograms of insecticide per
gram of total insect, Ball
made his figures more ac
curate. "In general," Ball wrote in
his 1963 report, the greatest
resistance to Aldrin occurred
in insects collected from sites
40 to 50 miles on either side
of the Platte River. This 80
to 100-wide band, with the
Platte River at its center, is
an area that coincides with
that part of the state where
chlorinated hydrocarbon and
cyclodiene insecticides have

What's In A Woodsie,
A Picnic Without Food?
By Travis Hiner
Junior Staff Writer
Many students feel that
there is a need of clarifica
tion on exactly what a wood
sie is. To many of the fresh
men the term "orgie" and
"woodsie" are one and the
same thing.
A s freshman Brian H a 1 1 a
put it, "My conception of
woodsies, previous to any
personal experience, was
"b o o z e," "blankets" and
"broads," but since I've been
to one I've found this to be
a warped exaggeration and
Certainly there are wood
sies and then there are wood
sies, but none deserve t h e
gross name of 'orgie.' "
Exactly what is a woodsie?
To be realistic a woodsie is
an offshoot ot a picnic. The
only difference being that
woodsies are at night and
there is seldom anything to
eat although usually there is
some kind of refreshment.
What one does at a party
depends largely upon the in
dividual. Activity at a wood
sie generally consists of sit
ting around a fire talking,
singing, laughing and having
a good time. Depending upon
the type of woodsie, there
may even be music, a combo
and a place to dance.
College life is an adult so
ciety or least a serni-a d u 1 1
society and most activities
and parties are carried out
in accordance with adult so
cial standards.
Senior Jon Feistner seems
to agree with this saying, "Too
often it is thought that being
outdoors for a woodsie might
be a carry over from the
Greek orgies. This is obvious
ly a prostitution of the facts,"
"A woodsie simply gives
the University student an op.
portunity for release that is
not permitted within the
pseudo-social coat and t i e
set. There are no rules of
procedure at a woodsie, one
can be himself which in Itself
can be rather educational,
Feistner added.
Naturally there are two
kinds of woodsies, "g o o d"
and "bad," and certainly
woodsies can be critized as
well as praised, but usually
they're just good clean fun
and enjoyment. In general,
many students feel they
don't deserve the bad reputa
tion new students on campus
attribute to them.
