Ever had that boxed -in feeling?
He approached the box.
After all, it isn't everyday you see a
small wooden box perched in the center
of the mall just south of the Mueller
Tower. He gave it the once over, peered
into the hole on its side and cautiously
studied it for a few minutes before
walking off a few steps. ,
Then he came back and kicked it.
That unidentified student's reaction
plus the reactions of anyone else who
passed the box last Friday were a

sophomore art student Jon Meyer.
r'l proved something to myself that
people do notice the things around
them," Meyer said. The box and his
study of it were projects for his
advanced three-dimensional art class.
According to Meyer, class members
must do an exterior and an interior
project for the class.
' You can do anything as long as the
reason is good and there's an explana
tion of why and what for," he said. The
box was Meyer's exterior prdject; " 4
Meyer spent four days setting it up
last week and then watched people react
to it for four hours, two hours while he
sat inside the box and two hours outside
at different points around the box. All
that time he was taking pictures.
"One guy did get mad when I took his
picture but that s not bad when you
consider how many people went by,"
Meyer said. "About 50 to 75 people
stopped to look at it."
while he was inside the box, Meyer
said he discovered he could be seen by
those peering through the hole. "One of
those who looked in noticed me and said
'Hey, how ya doin'?' Another got real
upset over the 'fact that I was 'in it."
Meyer, a Lincoln native, said most
people stopped when only a few people
were in the area. Less students stopped
when the mall was crowded with
classgoers. "Most people would just
stop, look in and go on their way,' he
said. , , ,.
"When they decided they coutdn t
figure it out, they'd just leve and let it
goat that."
on spring
ine current issues oi women s uoeranon ana
the feminist movement are the themes of a new
course to be offered during the spring semester by
the Philosophy Dept.
"Moral and Political Issues in Feminism,"
listed as Philosophy 222, Section 100. will be
taught by Sarah Hoagland. The cour; r open to
students with at least sophomore uwvhnq and to
freshman honor students, but Hoagiand said she
"will allow anyone seriously interested in
Women's Lib to sign up for it."
The course will be similar to a course Hoagland
ancf will center on two setswol pToETems: the
understanding and analysis of the basic issues of
the feminist movement and how to produce
greater respect and dignity for women
Specific issues which hoagland i,.iKj ;uq to be
covered in the course are methods and means of
instigating social change, the d." :.een
revolution and reform, the roie of economic
independence in liberation, the function of the
concepts of feminity and masculinity in the
existing social order, the function of the Kumly and
the economic role of the housewife.
Hoagland said, "The Women's Liberation
Movement is not a tad, something that will
disappear, it is a permanent feature of our
developing society and must be treated v, r.uch.
am encouraging its study to help determine its
rational and permanent aspects from those which
are emotional and impermanent."
"We must also realize," she said, "that the
role and purpose of Women's Lib is not to place
women above men but to establish the riohts of all
persons to the same opportunities for seif-develop-,
ment and fulfillment, men as well as women As
things now stand, men are as much abused as
women by some of the present sexist structures of
American society."
