finals won't flop
"I have two papers, a test and a book to read, not to
mention finals, and there's only two weeks of school left. I'll
never finish everything."
Such laments are being heard more and more often as dead
week and finals roll around again. And, as usual, students will
apply that final burst of energy and concentration to their
books and somehow "finish everything." But in the process
their eating, sleeping, and exercise habits will probably become
erratic and often inadequate. And in turn some of the abilities
to recall and concentrate are lost.
During semester windup, students tend to give up regular
meals in favor of snacks. Usually these snacks take the form of
empty-calorie chips, cookies, candy and carbonated beverages.
Empty-calorie means that the only nutrients supplied in these
foods are carbohydrates and fats.
Connie Kies, food and nutrition professor, said, "There is
nothing wrong with snacks per se, but these snacks make the
likelihood of a less nutritious diet more likely."
So if you are inclined to snacking during finals, try
choosing alternatives to the usual standbys.
A good idea is to fill a thermos with chilled juice to take
with you while studying in the library, Union or park. This
will help eliminate the temptation of the pop machine.
For a quick pick-me-up at home, try stirring two teaspoons
of lemon juice, ''. teaspoon Worchestershire sauce, salt, and
pepper into a glass of tomato juice.
Crunchy foods seem to be popular snacks. Instead of
munching potato chips, take time out to clean and slice some
carrot and celery sticks. Store them in a closed container of
ice-water in the refrigerator. Put a few in a plastic sandwich
bag to take along on study trips to the park and campus. If
you crave salty foods, try dipping the vegetables into garlic,
onion or celery salt.
For those with sweet tooths, Heartland cereal adds protein
to the carbohydrates. A 16-ounce box contains 11 per cent
protein, 17 per cent fat and 64 per cent carbohydrate and
costs 50 cents. Heartland is made from rolled oats, defatted
wheat germ, brown su(j.ir, and corn syrup and does not contain
any artificial preset vatives or flavoring. It is ready to eat
straight from the box or with milk.
A cat bohydi ate -piotein-iron mix to mingle at home is
called grop. Combine equal amounts of dry-roasted, salted
peanuts, M&Ms chocolate candies and raisins. Then munch.
And, of course, there are a variety of fresh fruits from
which to choose. One expensive, but scrumptious possibility is
a pint of fresh spring sti awberries.
Coffee seems to be one of the staples in the finals week
diet. But from a nutritional standpoint coffee has no value
unless combined with cream and sugar. Coffee is often
consumed in the hopes the caffeine will keep the student
awake during an all-night study session.
However, a study conducted at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology found that either the stress of exams or staying
up late resulted in a negative protein balance. So from a
nutritional standpoint, a good source of protein would prove a
better choice than coffee when you must stay up late.
A nutritious and more flavorful substitute for coffee would

Cup ol-Goup series ranging from split pea and tomato to beef
Noodle and cieam-of-chicken. Kies suggested pea soup as a
protein source. Cup-of -Soups come in boxes with four
piemoasuted envelopes. The cost of each envelope averages 10
cents. Regular instant soups can also be used. One-fourth
package combined with boiling water will make approximately
a cup. And don't foiget boullion.
Even though snack foods help give students a positive lift
during finals, Kies said it is still important to eat regular meals
unci to keep total body health in mind. Not only does a
student need to be aware of what is being eaten, he also needs
plenty of exercise and sleep. These are good justifications for a
game of tennis and an early bedtime.
