Reader unhappy
with stripping story
I have been a visiter on campus this last week.
I have been pleased with the professional quality
cf your newspaper.
While reading the Wednesday, March 13th
issue, I read something I was net pleased with. It
was an article reporting on a stripping telegram
service. The article wis objective and very gra
phic in its presentation. By printing such a gra
phic article, is this not promoting the idea by
default?
Does not human reason say that such things
are not right? Parents do not instruct their
children that "stripping" is the thing to do, do
they? Do they not instruct them so when they
become adults, they will behave moral? Hope
fully this does not mean that Nebraska is throw
ing away its moral character.
I am deeply grieved that such an article
appeared in an otherwise professional-looking
newspaper.

This letter is a supplement to the Bill Allen
review cf "Espo Man," (Daily Nebraska., March
13) currently shewing at the Sheldon Film
The UPC-East Sights & Sounds Committee
showed "Repo Man" as part of a three-movie
package Feb. 23 in the East Union Great Plains
Eoom. In addition to "Repo Man," we had "Never
Say Never Again" and "Valley Girl" in a program
we promoted as a Pajama Party. If a student
attended this program and wanted to see only
one film, the cost for admission was $1. If the
student saw two films, the price went down to 50
cents. To see all three free, the student would
not leave. Not a bad deal, don't you think?
But at the end of the evening, when "Repo
Man" was shown, fewer than 10 students re
mained. Through its Spring Film Series, UPC-East is
providing some inexpensively priced entertain
ment. I hope the Sheldon Film Theatre i3 packed for
every showing of "Repo Man." Bat for the stu
dents who do attend, remember, you could have
seen the same film on East Campus for a few
hard-earned dollars less.

I am writing in response to till Alien's review

I've read and I've heard a countless number of
times that Brad Schluteibusch's portrayal of
Danny Zuko isn't adequate. It's been said that he
doesn't quite fit the image of a tough gang
leader. The way I understand it, Zuko is merely a
member of a gang who holds the respect of his
peers. To me, Kenickie is to bis portrayed as the
tough guy who leads the group.
The reason why there is so much misunder
standing in regard to Schluterbusch's portray:!
of Zuko is because the UNL production is based
in the origins! play and not the movie. Too many
people don't realize this and go to see it with a
preconceived notion of what it should be like .
and then come out of the theatre feeling rather
dissatisfied.
I don't think that the ability of any of the
actors or actresses should be criticized unless
one knows for sure the differences between the
character personalities in the play and in the
