media producers are expected to have
exhibits at the book fair sponsored by the
Nebraska Professional Bookmen and
University of Nebraska-Lincoln Summer
'The books aren't for sale at all," Gil
Saunders, exhibit coordinator, said. "It's
purely a display so teachers and anyone
else who's interested can come in and
browse through the new materials."
Teachers will be able to place book
orders for shipment later, Saunders said.
He said the book fair is an annual
summer session event that dates from the
1920s. Saunders has been associated with
the display for 44 years.
The 1972 textbook exhibit will be
open today until 4 p.m. The display will
be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and 8

Olympic volleyball player
A former Olympic women's volleyball
player is the guest clinician at a volleyball
coaching workshop sponsored by the
women's physical education department.
Ann Heck was a member of the U.S.
women's team in the 1967 Pan American
games and the 1968 Olympic games in
Mexico City. Since then, she has turned
to teaching and coaching volleyball in an
effort to promote the sport.
Miss Heck's two-week workshop at the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln includes
35 secondary school women's phys ed
teachers and one man, an elementary
phys ed instructor.
According to Dr. Janette Sayre,
workshop director, the volleyball clinic
softball game July 29 rounds out the next
month's weekend recreational programs.
Co-reercalional events for July include
tennis, volleyball, paddleball and
horseshoes. For all events, entries are due
July 20 and play starts July 24.

In addition to teaching basic skills of
the game and of coaching, Miss Heck also
instructs the workshop participants in
how scientific principles apply to the
"The principles of leverage and
controlling the ball, its spin and
momentum involve basic physics and
anatomy," she said.
"Volleyball demands a great deal of
skill, but it's a very exciting game and a
popular sport for women."
She said the growth in popularity of
the sport began in 1964 when Japan
added volleyball to the Olympic
competition. (The Olympic host country
always has the option of adding a sport
on a provisional basis. Miss Heck said.)
"It was so popular that year the
Olympic committee decided to include it
the next time, too," she said.
Knowledge gained from space flights
helps solve earth' s environmental
problems, according to two space
scientists who spoke last week at forums
sponsored by t lie elementary education
department and Clare Mcl'hee School.
George Von Tiesenhausen of the
Marshall Space Flight Center, Hunlsville,
Ala., criticized current "anti-science and
"Technology is neither good nor had,"
Von Tiesenhausen said. "It's just a tool;
it's we who make mistakes in usinit it.
"When technology is used properly,
it's the only way to solve environmental
problems." he said.

space programs while 42 cents are spent
for social purposes.

flights, said the moon missions weie

dancer, in "Guys and Dolls."
Additional growth of the sport came
when the National Collegiate Athletic
Association added volleyball as a men's
varsity sport with a national
championship, she said.
A third push came when the Division
of Girl's and Women's Sports began
holding nati onal championship
competition for women's volleyball teams
three years ago, Miss Heck said.
But the popularity of volleyball still is
strongest in California, Miss Heck's home,
where "everybody plays volleyball on the
beach," she said.
According to Miss Heck, volleyball is
particularly popular for women because it
is a non-contact sport.
No U.S. women's volleyball team
qualified to participate in the next
Olympic games in Munich, Miss I lock
said, so the next chance for a U.S. team
to participate in international
competition will be the Student World
University games scheduled for next
summer in Moscow. Any team that can
raise the necessary funds is allowed to
enter that competition, she said.

December flight will mark the end of
lunar exploration for about 15 years.
The next step in space exploration, he
said, is Skylab, an orbiting space
laboratory about the size of a
three-bedroom house which will be
powered by energy converted from
sunlight. It will be launched next year.
Following Skylab, a space shuttle will
be developed about six years from now,

The University's summer repertory
theater season opens Friday with the
musical "Guys and Dolls."
Based on a series of Damon Runyon
short stories describing New York
characters, the musical is taken from a
book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser.
The play is about a gang of New York
gamblers and their involvement with a girl
from the Save-A-Soul Mission who tries
to reform them.
Sarah, the Save-A-Soul Mission girl , is
played by Sandy Utsumi. She tries to
reform gambler Sky Masterson, played by
James Bartz, but instead falls in love with
In a boy - meets - girl subplot, Mitch
Tebo plays gambler Nathan Detroit who
falls in love with Adelaide, a dancer
played by Cindy Wallis.
Guest director Ed Amor calls the show
"very funny family entertainment."
Amor is an associate professor at the
University of Wisconsin at Madison.
Music is provided by a nine-member
orchestra directed by Gary Lamb.
"In one scene, the Save-A-Soul Mission
characters have to have a band on stage,"
Amor said, "and most of them had to
learn how to play their instruments for it,
which makes it sound very funny and
The play usually is set in the 1940s,
Amer said. But the Howell Theater
production will put Damon Runyon's
characters back in the 1920s.
"Just as a framework for the show,
we'll have a 1970s audience watching a
1940s movie company filming 'Guys and
Dolls' in a 1 920s setting," he said.
Other members of the cast include:
Frank Kopyc, Dave Bell, Curl Heck, Susie
