rights committee resolution into

speedy report in it's regular Tues

The action came after about a
half an hour of spirited discussion
and a substitute motion had taken
the place of the resolution

Dentists can play an important
role in urging people to give up
smoking, according to Dr. Donald
T. Waggener, professor of
radiology in the Dental College.
In a paper presented recently at
the annual American Dental
Association meeting in Miami, Dr.
Waggener concerned his thesis
primarily with teenagers w ho have
recently begun smoking.
The influence of the dentist at
this time on teenage smokers "is of
particular importance." he said.

quit smoking before it becomes an
irreversible habit and ill effects
have opportunities to develop.
A dentist has the opportunity to
see many changes in the soft tissue
of the mouth which may be caused
by smoking, Waggener pointed out.
"Many changes in this soft tissue
may result from tobacco. This is
true of the combustion products of
making bodies of the University,"
such as ASUN, faculty senate
and the administration.
He does not think the com

Cigar and pipe smoking may be
less harmful than cigarette smok

smokers inhale less, but they seem
to be more suspectible to Up and

to get cancer of the bladder more
than cigarette smokers, he noted.

Final preparations made
for IDA musical comedy
Rehearsals are in the final phase
for the IDA musical "A Funny
Thing Happened On The Way To
The Forum." The musical comedy
will be presented Nov. 21-23 in She

The musical comedy is set in
pagan Rome and is lewdly adapted
from the plays of Plautus. He was a
genius at inventing e n d 1 e i

THE STORY is that Pseudolus, a

virgin who has completed her basic

Pseudolus must foil all the males
who desire the dumb blonde virgin,

when there is not time to refer it to
full committee. He said such a post
has existed at several universities
for some years.
AFTER SOME bickering about
parliamentary procedure, the floor
was given to Prof. Albin T. An
derson. The history professor
criticized the resolution on several
First, he said, there was no clear
statement of need for the com
mittee and for the senate to act
Secondly, he said that the
resolution had originally been
presented as "an emergency type
of measure" to meet an urgent
problem on campus. Only the next
day, he asserted, did he find out
"by reading the local campus
newspaper" that teachers here
were "ivy-towered and out of touch
He said there are those who
might hold that view, but that he
did not and thought the University
was clearly on record in favor of
equality and human rights.
Several members rose to agree
with Prof. Anderson that the
University, by the declaration of the
housing policy and other actions,
was clearly on record in this area.
PROF. JACK Siegman refuted
this position by saying that many of
the explosions on campuses around
the country had occurred because
there was a lack of communication
between faculty and students, and
the lack of a combined effort in
meeting "explosive situations."

ferent It depends on the persons
background, schooling, values and
many other factors, he said.
WHEN EVIDENCE of harm done
by smoking is present, every pa
tient has a motivational factor, a
reason to change his ways, he said.
Commodities sold across the
counter, advertised to help smokers
break the habit, generally have only
a psychological value, he said. Pa
tients, if they need medicine,
should get it from a doctor, he said.
Doctors, especially, are breaking
the smoking habit, he noted. In the
middle 1950' s about 60 per cent of
the nation's doctors smoked. Recent
statistics show that only 22 percent
currently smoke, he said.
