and issued arrest warrants for two men
in connection with Wednesday’s

Early this morning, the official
death toll stood at 52, making the
attack the deadliest bombing in U.S.
history. About 150 people remained
FBI Agent Weldon Kennedy said
arrest warrants were issued for two
white men suspected of using aliases
to rent the truck that carried the bomb
in the explosion at the Alfred P. Murrah
Federal Building. The men’s identi

Investigators said the truck was
rented Monday, packed with fuel-and
fertilizer explosives and parked out
side the office building, where the
blast tore away half the structure and
blew a crater 8 feet deep and 30 feet

Cindy Roubalperiorms at The Night Before, 1035M St., Tuesday night. Roubal, who has worked forthe last 11/2 years
as a topless dancer, is a senior broadcasting major who will graduate in August near the top of her class.
Part-time job puts student in limelight
By Paula Lavigne
In between classes, Cindy Roubal, a se
nior broadcasting major, fits in with the mass
of students filing through Nebraska Union.
At first glance, there’s nothing unusual
about the 22-year-old honors student, who
will graduate in August near the top of her
class at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Her rose-rimmed glasses match the long,
wavy red hairtied behind her head. But when
the glasses come off and the hair comes
down, Roubal sheds her personality—and
her clothes—for “Emily.”
“Emily” is Roubal’s stage name at The
Night Before Lounge at 11th and M streets,
where Roubal works three nights and one
afternoon a week.
It may shock some to see a Midwestern,
small-town girl—and honors student, none
theless — work as a topless dancer, but
Roubal said it was this persona that made her
“Emily is very charismatic, very ener
getic, she said. “I play the innocent but
seductive schoolgirl thing. I was wearing
little plaid skirts and all.”
Roubal, who used to work at a bank, said
that despite all its stereotypical trappings,
topless dancing was a normal job to pay the
“I don’t think of it as sexual,” she said. “I
think of it as fun.”
While she was still employed at the bank,
Roubal’s friends got her to compete in local
dance contests. A desire to entertain people
cone naturally, she said, and die won the
Ho* bank manager told her she would be
fired if she didn ’t quit dancing, which forced
Roubal to think about dancing as an alternate
job. She quit the bank and auditioned for a
spot at The Night Before.
“At first, being in front of people staring
at you was kind of scary,” she said, but die
liked the bar, the owner respected her and
her friends and roommate supported her.
Now when she gets onstage, her confi
dence level builds.
“I feel really in control. I feel really good,”
die said. “I forget that people are watching
me. I’m more concerned with my dancing
and the way my body moves.”
Roubal is a Regent’s Scholar and member
honoraries, anS crowd memEers were
shocked to find out she was intelligent.
“Some say, ‘It’s hard to look at you,
knowing you have a brain,”’ she said.
She said she helped break the stereotype
of the. big-breasted, blonde-bimbo dancers.
In Lincoln, crowd members are not al
lowed to touch the dancers, and the dancers’
rear ends must be completely covered.
“You can show your breasts but you can’t
show your butt,” she said, laughing.
Roubal danced in Atlanta over spring
break—and in Atlanta, they take it all off.
“I was taking my clothes off 40 times a
day,” die said. “I was dancing on tables. It
was pretty scary.”
