September 28, 1984-3SOCIAL LIFEAhitchikers guide to campus and Hyde ParkAmong the many mailings you re¬ceived this summer you’ll find a map ofthe campus and a booklet or newsletteron campus buildings. The impressionyou get from these goodies, however,may not coincide with the images andimpressions you get once you arrivehere. In other words, you’ll probablyget hopelessly lost more than once inyour U of C career.The Maroon suggests that before theheavy school work begins and theweather worsens, you take the time towalk around the quads and Hyde Parkthough; stay by the bookstore.Past Cummings and on the left sideof the “street” is Mitchell Hospital,where you go for the medical emer¬gency room. By the bookstore you’ll no¬tice a large building with a circularsculpture in front. That’s the Brain Sur¬gery Pavillion, and going in the frontdoors leads to a short cut to StudentHealth (but don’t forget your ID!!!).Start walking South on Ellis Ave. (tothe right as you face the Ad Building).On your left, next to the AdministrationBuilding, is Cobb Hall, where most hu-Delta Phi fraternity, Calvert House,the Math-Stat building, and finally thetennis courts in back of the QuadrangleClub. On the left is one side of EckhartHall, then Mandel Hall, where MABputs on its major concerts. The nextstep is Reynolds Club, which has a tick¬et office, small theatres, the CareerCounseling and Placement Center, abarber shop, WHPK, and that famouscampus institution, The Mailroom.From Reynolds Club you can reachHutch Commons, which seems likehome base for Morry’s. It contains an58th Street Plaza was recently completed after being under construction all last spring,leads to Cummings Life Science Center and .Mitchell Hospital.by Arthur u. EllisThe plazato gain at least a passing familiaritywith a campus where all those greybuildings look alike and with the neigh¬borhood where you’ll live for at leastthe next nine months. To help you, we’llplay navigator. You only have to walk,although you may want to bring a cam¬era and a few dollars along for theride.Ready? Good. Start at the front ofRegenstein Library (Reg, for short).That way we can get all the boringbuildings stuff done at the beginning.The Reg stands on the site of old StaggField where the Maroons once domi¬nated the Big Ten football conference.Enrico Fermi and friends split theatom underneath the west grandstand,which stood to the left as you face theReg. The U of C built the Reg in 1969.New Stagg Field is on 56th Street andCottage Grove, the far west end ofHyde Park.When you’re ready, walk across 57thStreet and through the big gates toenter the main quadrangle. As youwalk you’ll notice legendary BotanyPond on the left. We have no idea, how¬ever, what the big deal is concerningBotany Pond. As you approach the traf¬fic circle you’ll have Ryerson (thephysics building) on the left, and Kent(the old chemistry building) on yourright. Kent had structural problemsand some radioactive walls and floorswhich the University began repairinglast year. That explains all the con¬struction equipment.When you get to the middle of thetraffic circle, turn around and stop. Tothe right of Ryerson is Eckhart Hall(math), and to the left of Kent is JonesHall (more chemistry). Now lookaround. Do you notice the building thatlooks out of place, and resembles some¬thing a child of very little imaginationbuilt with his Lego’s? Walk that way.That’s the Administration Building(vintage 1947), which houses the regis¬trar’s office and bursar’s office, stu¬dent housing’s office and Hanna’shome-away-from-home. Go throughthe doors and out the other side to EllisAve. In front of you is the UniversityBookstore which has the student loanoffice on fourth floor and texts on sec¬ond floor. Oh, also, Morry’s has abranch of its fast-growing restauranttree on the first floor. Behind the book¬store is a small post office, and next tothat is Cummings Life Science Center.Don’t walk all the way down there,manities and social science classesmeet. Quantrell Auditorium (home otDOC films) is on the second floor ofCobb.After Cobb (you are still walkingsouth) is Gates-Blake Hall, whichserved as a dormitory in ancient times.Many professors have their offices inthere now. When you reach 59th Street,turn left. (Note: All that stuff on yourright is part of Billings Hospital).Walking along 59th Street you’ll seethe Midway Plaisance, site of the 1893Columbian Exposition and currentlythe University’s backyard. Across theMidway lies Burton-Judson, dormitoryand to its left the Law School.On your left is a tunnel leading intothe quads. Go through, turn right, andstart walking. On your left is BondChapel, and on your right is a longbuilding which goes, respectively, Wie-boldt Hall, Harper, and Social Science.Inside Harper are the admissions of¬fice, the deans’ offices, financial aid,and advisers’ offices. Third floorHarper is a library which is a nice al¬ternative to the Reg. Wieboldt housesthe computer terminals on the thirdfloor, and it’s open 24 hours a day.Keep walking until you reach a wayout between Social Science and FosterHall. Take that right to get back to 59thStreet, then turn left. You’ll passHanna Gray’s house (another architec¬tural gem), Rockefeller Chapel, andyou’ll see Ida Noyes Hall across Wood-lawn Ave. Turn left at Woodlawn Ave.Ida Noyes underwent major renova¬tion during the summer. It contains theoffices of the Maroon, Student Govern¬ment, Student Activities, GALA, andOBS, and the Pub as well. Student Ac¬tivities Night will be held there on Sun¬day.Going up Woodlawn Ave. you’ll seeWoodward Court dormitory on theright. Turn left at 58th Street, but no¬tice that on 58th Street behind Wood¬ward is Robie House, a Frank LloydWright original and a national land¬mark.On 58th Street you have the ChicagoTheological Seminary on the right andthe Oriental Institute on the left. TheSeminary has the Seminary Co-opBookstore in its basement. Check itout.Yes, the buildings’ section can get te¬dious after a while, but you’re almostdone with that part. Turn right at Uni¬versity Ave. for the homestretch. Onyour right you’ll see, in order, Alphaice cream shop, sundries shop, restau¬rant, and French restaurant called(what else?) Chez Morry’s.Keep walking down University Ave.,cross 57th Street. On your left is Bart¬lett Gym (1904) and, a bit further down,Henry Crown Field House (1931). Bart¬lett has a small pool, as does Ida Noyes,in addition to a basketball court andrunning track. Henry Crown has every¬thing else, athletically speaking.On the right lies the Blue Gargoyle,and Psi Upsilon fraternity. Furtherdown, but before 56th Street, you’ll no¬tice two more fraternities—Phi DeltaTheta and Phi Gamma Delta (a k a.FIJI). Except for Delta Upsilon over onWoodlawn Ave. and budding chaptersof Phi Kappa Psi and Zeta Beta Tau,that’s it for frats, folks.Past Henry Crown, between 56th and55th streets, is North Field,, and afterthat, Pierce Tower. And that, ladiesand gentlemen, ends the campus partof our Guide.Part Two: Hyde ParkStay at Pierce Tower for part two.But before you begin, keep in mind thatHyde Park used to house many famousclubs, entertainers, and businessmen.Carl Sandburg wrote here, DanAykroyd and John Belushi performedhere, and Mike Nichols director, of TheGraduate), even went to the U of C, asdid comedian David Steinberg.A1 Capone lived here, and Muham¬mad Ali and Black Muslim leader Eli¬jah Mohammad lived in the Kenwoodneighborhood. Bill Veeck, formerWhite Sox, Indians, and St. LouisBrowns owner, still lives here.Most people, though, talk about HydePark in the past tense. You should tryto make the best of what Hyde Parkstill offers, and give the neighborhood afair chance.OK, you’re at Pierce Tower on 55thStreet. All along the northside of thestreet you can catch the #55 GarfieldCTA bus to make connections to the Eltrains or to reach Midway Airport.Turn right down 55th. On your left isJimmy’s Woodlawn Tap, cited in BillGranger’s Chicago Tribune column asone of Chicago’s finest taverns (alongwith Hyde Park’s Falcon Inn). Headacross Woodlawn Ave. to KimbarkAve. and pay particular attention to theopen spaces and the town houses. Theurban renewal projects of the ’50s and’60s replaced the bars and stores lining55th Street with housing and a smallpark. The project also spawned Univer¬sity Apartments, which you can see inthe middle of 55th Street a few blocksahead, on what some call “MonoxideIsland.” Dick Gregory, the comedianand activist, lived there.Turn left at Kimbark, and cutthrough the park on the path. Of themany smells you could encounter onthe path (from marijuana to dog shit),the one that will become dominant isthe odor co-produced by McDonald’sand Harold’s Chicken Shack. SampleHarold’s at least once during your stayhere.When you reach 53rd Street, to yourleft (past McDonald’s) is the 53rdStreet shopping plaza, another urbanrenewal gift which contains a super¬market, laundromat, and liquor store,among other shops. You want to walkright.Soon you’ll pass Berman’s Hard¬ware, a handy place to pick up odds andends, and Ribs ‘N’ Bibs. Continuing fur¬ther, you’ll pass many storefronts andshops you may want to browse in. Onyour left Harper Court will pop up, andin that area you’ll find an ice creamstore and some restaurants. Restau-continued on page fiveandRibsStreetingRibs and Bibs.Bibs on 53rd Street serves typical takeout food. 53rdis a well known nightspot for eating, with restaurants rang-from the classy Mallory’s to no-frills food such as that served by4—The Chicago Maroon—Friday, September 28, 1984SOCIAL LIFEAhitchikers guidecontinued from page fourrants, in fact, cover a good part of 53rdStreet as you keep walking.On South Blackstone Ave. look out forGiardano’s pizza place, at the site ofthe old Eagle Tavern. Giardano’s alongwith Edwardo’s and Medici’s (both on75th Street east of campus) serve fan¬tastic stuffed and flat pizza, and the lat¬ter two deliver as well.When you reach Lake Park Ave. (thenext really busy street) you can contin¬ue straight, going under the IC tracks,to reach the Falcon Inn, or turn right tohead toward 55th Street and the shop¬ping plaza down there.Turning right (toward 55th) you’llcome to that shopping plaza. It con¬tains a Woolworth’s, a Walgreen’sDrug Store, the Hyde Park Co-op (foodshopping) and several small stores andrestaurants worth checking out. At 55thStreet, turn left. We’re heading to theLake.This upcoming section of 55th some¬what resembles 53rd Street—smallstores, restaurants, and so forth. When55th ends (near the Shoreland Hotel,now a U of C dormitory) head throughthe tunnel underneath Lake ShoreDrive. That brings you to PromontoryPoint, an ideal place for relaxing, walk¬ing, playing, meditating, or whatever(as long as you do it during the daylighthours). Walk around the Point (let’ssay counterclockwise) and you’ll seethe Museum of Science and Industry,the Lake’s South Shore, and finallyGary, Indiana. Then you'll see lots ofwater, and ultimately a potentiallygreat view of the Chicago skyline (getout the camera).On a sunny, warm day the Pointspeaks for itself.The last leg of the Hyde Park tour is57th Street. Go back through the tunnelfrom the Point and walk to 57th, by theMuseum of Science and Industry. Youcan wander and lose yourself insidethere (admission is free), or head di¬rectly to 57th. The large hotel you no¬tice on the way is the Windermere, A1Capone’s home for a while.Down 57th Street, around the StonyIsland Ave./IC tracks area, stood theartist’s colony which Carl Sandburgonce called home. The trip down 57thbrings you by a couple of grocerystores, a barber shop, a record store,and the aforementioned Medici and Ed¬wardo’s, to name a few of the restau¬rants. In the spring 57th closes down forthe 57th Street Art Fair, something youdon’t want to miss.Soon you’ll return to campus, to theReg, where you major tour ends. Hope¬fully you found some places to return toor hang out at, or answered your ques¬tions about where to buy clothes, food,etc. If nothing else the trip should giveyou some perspective on Hyde Parkand the University community.KenwoodOne does not need an in-depth knowl¬edge ot architecture to appreciate thehomes in the Kenwood neighborhoodbetween 47th Street and Hyde ParkBlvd. (51st Street). These mansionshave housed many of Chicago’s indus¬trialists and celebrities, and featurethe work of many famous Chicago ar¬chitects, including Frank LloydWright.We suggest walking betwen 51st and48th Streets, and between Ellis andBlackstone Avenues to see a large con¬centration of these houses. Of particu¬lar interest is 4940 S. Woodla'wn, whereMuhammed Ali lived, and the dwell¬ings at 49th and Woodlawn, built in 1972by Elijah Muhammed, leader of theBlack Muslims.The house at 4848 S. Ellis was builtfor Gustavus Swift, the famous meat-packer. Julius Rosenwald. one of thefirst chief executives of Sears and Roe¬buck. lived at 4901 S. Ellis.If the Kenwood tour excites yourimagination, we recommend Jean F.Block’s Hyde Park Houses for addi¬tional history.(Upper) The Museum of Science and Industry, located a short walkdown 57th Street, is a place where both science and non-science peo¬ple can amuse themselves for hours.(Lower) 55th Street Plaza, shown here, is the home for Walgreens,the Hyde Park Co-Op, and Woolworths, as well as several clothingand food stores.WE CAN HELP YOUCUT RED TAPEThe Ombudsman handles pro¬blems that arise out of student life — hous¬ing, grading, food service, athletic facilities,the library, university hospitals and clinics —anything that comes up where ordinarychannels of complaint or action seemblocked.The Ombudsman, a student ap¬pointed by the President, is in a unique posi¬tion to understand and solve problems andcomplaints that would other wise fallthrough the cracks, if the system has youflummoxed, frustrated or outraged, maybewe can help.Drop in; no appointment is necessary,we are open Monday through Saturday.

You may be apart of a new wave of students who aregetting involved in activities. Adminis¬trators observed last spring that the Uof C needs a more social campus andthey committed the time and monev tomake it happen. Now the Student Ac¬tivities Office (SAO) is followingthrough with a wider variety and aworks on helping students and studentgroups help themselves get more or¬ganized.Ongoing services sponsored by SAOinclude the University Ticket Center, abooth set up in Reynolds Club whereSAO members sell cigarettes, discounttickets, and can often tell you what ac¬tivities are going on. Whistles for theWhistlestop protection program aresold at SAO, as well as internationalStudents at the U of C have become more active in the past tewyears prompting activities such as Kuviasungnerk Ice Sculpturepromptinggreater number of on and off campusactivities.SAO. located on the second floor ofIda Noyes, serves as a clearinghousefor clubs, a sponsor of on-campusevents, and a support service that stu¬dents turn to for information on activi¬ties being held or support in planningevents. Irene Conley, director of SAO,observed that students are becomingmore active as well and she primarilyBLOOD BANKCall 962-6247for appointmentstudent i.d.s good for travel discountsabroad. In addition, SAO oversees theVVeiss, Cobb and Nonesuch coffeeshopswhich are student-run.Eclectic Ed, a mini series of non¬credit courses, has been gaining popu¬larity in the past few years. Many stu¬dents took aerobics last year, althoughthe dance programs originally had ashaky start. This summer, there wereover 200 people participating in fivedifferent dance classes—most likely asign that students are more health con¬scious now.Eclectic Ed classes include JazzDance, Amma (Japanese) Massage,Aerobic Exercise, Afro-CaribbeanDance, Ikebana, Belly Dancing, Mod¬ern Dance, Ballroom Dance, andHacha Yoga. New’ classes that SAO istrying this fall are: Beginning Calli¬graphy, Spare Parts, and Basic Photo¬graphy. Each course is a quarter longand costs anywhere from $20 to $50.SAO wants to encourage students toget off campus and explore Chicagotoo.The Maroon Express, a weekend rideservice providing transportation down¬town, will ride again this year. It start¬ed last year and was well received al¬though financially it is not in the black.Similar programs failed in the past dueto poor ridership and the heavy subsidyneeded to keep such a program going.Conley wants to encourage morehouses and clubs to use the Express totravel downtown in groups.Special fall SAO activities include In¬dian Summer Nights (Autumnerk)which is co-sponsored by Student Gov¬ernment (SG). That weekend will giveHomecoming a new twist with new ac¬tivities such as concerts, dances, mov¬ies, campfires, barbecues, etc. Wassailis an annual SAO event near Christmaswhere students, faculty and Universitystaff celebrate the upcoming holiday.This year, Mary Jerz, director of spe¬cial programs, is working for a higherquality event with homebaked cookiesas well as the traditional entertain¬ment and Wassail (a drink made fromcider and spices). SAO will also rentice skates once the Midway freezes.A more celebrated SAO service isArt to Live With. Through this pro¬gram students who are devoted to artbut can’t afford to buy a Picasso or aMonet can hang masterpieces in theirdorm rooms or apartments for half ayear at $5. Joseph Shapiro, a noted artcollector, wanted to make art access¬ible to young people so he gave the col¬lection of watercolors, etchings, prints,and lithographs to the University. Ar¬tists represented in the collection in¬clude Miro, Picasso, Chagall. Roualt,Ernst and Kahn.Students who want to rent a work ofart can view them on October 3 andbegin choosing them the next day.Students avidly collect another workof art as well - the SAO-produced post¬er listing activities for each quarter.Another way that students can get aup-to-date list of current activities oncampus, in Hyde Park and downtownwill be through the Student ActivitiesLine which will be in service later inthe year.Irene Conley is working with the Uni¬versity on the renovation of Ida Noyesto make it a more effective studentcenter. A new meeting room has beencreated and the darkroom which formany years stood vacant is returningto service. SAO also owns equipmentthat students and student groups canuse including a button making machineand a machine that makes sign type forposters.One new quarterly event which hascome about as part of the University’scommitment to a better student sociallife is a comedy series produced bySAO with a grant from the Dean of Stu¬dents in the College. The grant pro¬vides funds for a well-known comedianeach quarter. This fall, Jay Leno, whohas performed at Byfields, will be atMandel Hall.Conley is making graduate studentactivities a special concern this year aswell.

Last year the Pub had over 2000members, most of whom were gradu¬ate students.As another part of making them feelmore a part of the University as awhole, graduate students also now re¬ceive an Orientation packet and have aspecial orientation. This packet in¬cludes bus maps, local activity sched¬ules, and has graduate interests inmind.“I don’t believe in the apathetic stu¬dent... if students are apathetic thenyou haven’t done your homework.”Conley said of the image of U of C stu¬dents, both graduate and undergradu¬ate, as being interested only in study¬ing. She expects more clubs this year,particularly since this is an electionyear.One issue that Charles O’Connell,Dean of Students in the University, willconsider this fall will be raising theStudent Activities Fee to meet the de¬mands of these clubs. The Student Gov¬ernment Finance Committee allocatesmoney from the fee to clubs based onneed. In order to qualify for SG fund¬ing, a club must register with, and berecognized by, SAO.Conley sees a main role of SAO asmaking it easier for clubs to do whatthey want on campus, for example bycutting red tape with the administra¬tion.While the universal lament oncampus is that there isn’t enough to do,there are currently over 100 clubswhich satisfy such eclectic tastes asthe Medieval and Rennaissance Recre¬ation Society (MARRS) or The Fan¬tasy Gamers Club. Conley says thatmany more students are involved oncampus than image dictates. Advicefrom SAO for the coming year: get in¬volved!Major Activities BoardThe Major Activities Board — better -known as MAB — sponsors concertsand other major events on campusthroughout the year. In the past fewyears, MAB has brought U2, the Vio¬lent Femmes. The B52’s, Joan Arma-trading, and other well-known groupsto campus.MAB receives 40 percent of collectedStudent Activities Fees to spend onbringing entertainment to campus.The Board has approximately S42.000from the fee plus about $18,000 in ticketrevenues at its disposal, and a board ofsix members has essentially free reignto choose what entertainment will bepresented.Last year. MAB came under scrutinyfor alleged financial mismanagement.Therefore, this year’s Board plans towork more on a better image accord¬ing to Mary Merz. MAB advisor. MABalso wants more students to partici¬pate by making programming sugges¬tions and by volunteering at MAB ac¬tivities.Upcoming MAB events this year willinclude the Suburbs on Saturday, Oct.20 (during Autumnfest); The Psyche¬delic Furs on Friday, October 26: andSonny Cousins on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Indiana then, and “metJunior, Buddy, Lefty Dizz and all theothers. Junior introduced me to thecommunity which was right around myhouse.”That same community lies in theUniversity’s backyard. Theresa’s andthe Checkerboard now operate twoblocks apart, only a mile and a half cabride from campus. These lounges,because of their location and tradition,attract many personalities from out¬side Chicago, but still need support. AsGuy said of the Checkerboard, “I don’ttake this place to the bank.” The Stonesplayed at the Checkerboard in the fallof 1981, and John McEnroe (a buddingguitarist?) has dropped in on occasion,but the clubs depend on the dailybusiness of local blues artists to sur¬vive.Metcalfe said that “old classic bluesis devolving into a subculture” and ithas to adapt to changes in social condi¬tions and production technology to sur¬vive. “Jimi Hendrix broke through,”he said. “He created a synthesis bet¬ween traditional feelings and space ageconsciousness.” Songs like SylJohnson’s 1970 hit, “Is It Because I’mBlack?” touch a social nerve as well.Johnson’s straightforward question,“It’s a pity/There’s something holdingme back/ Is It Because I’m Black?,”addresses the modern music industryin particular and racism in general,and one wonders when another blackblues musician will transcend all thatand enter the mainstream, as did Hen¬drix in the late 60’s.As for the course of blues in 1984, Guy“can’t really say where it’s going.” Asfor calling attention to blues music andbreaking boundaries, Guy says“Vaughan is doing a fine job at it, andEric (Clapton) mentioned that he real¬ly wants to get back into it.” Guy addedhe’ll have some big musicians sit in onhis next album, but “I don’t want togive any names out.”Radio exposure sells records asmuch as concert appearances, and inChicago you can find the blues on JohnMrvos’s “Blues Breakers” show onWXRT (93.1 FM) or listen to campusstation WHPK (88.3 FM). Ernie Grove,WHPK’s program director, said thatthe station doesn’t have a big blues for¬mat due to “lack of personnel. If wehad more people available, we coulddevote more time to it.”The blues hasn’t completely died inChicago, but more exposure to therecord-buying public can revive the artform that started it all in contemporarymusic. A trip to Theresa’s or theCheckerboard is a great way to start.Chicago has earned many nicknamessince Fort Dearborn towered overLake Michigan. “Hog Butcher to theWorld,” “The City That Works,” and“The Home of the Blues” accuratelydescribed the prairie city turnedtrading and transportation center.Miles of railroad tracks lieovergrown with weeds now. The UnionStockyards, once the only hope for sur¬vival of four young men who later ruledChicago for 50 years as mayors, closedforever in 1971. Now the blues, themusic brought to Chicago by blackmigrants riding the railroads north insearch of steady employment, suffersin the 1980’s world dominated bytechnopop, slick production, and white-dominated radio formats.“When I came to Chicago, there werehundreds of blues joints,” said BuddyGuy, the legendary blues guitarist.“Now I can count them all on onehand.”Guy who came to Chicago from Loui¬siana in the late 50’s, has influenced ar¬tists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray -Vaughan, and David Bowie. Guy andhis partner, singer and harp playerJunior Wells, opened for the RollingStones on their 1970 and harp playerJunior Wells, opened for the RollingStones on their 1970 European tour, andremain good friends with the mega¬band which now makes more moneyfor one four-hour show than Guy andWells make on a year-long tour.The immense influence that Guy,Wells, and B. B King — not to mentiontheir predecessors Muddy Waters,Howlin’ Wolf, and Little Walter — havehad on rock music, has not helped theblues escape the small club/ballroomcircuit and gain widespread populari¬ty. Hendrix imitated Guy when hebegan playing in the 60’s. In the May 12,1983 Rolling Stone, Bowie commentedon synthesizer-based music: “Itdoesn’t have that quality of necessitythat music used to have. . .So in anatural progression (for his Let’sDance album) I just went back to thekinds of music that really excited mewhen I started. I was listening to peoplelike Buddy Guy.”Stevie Ray Vaughan, who playedlead guitar on Let’s Dance and hasreleased two albums of his own, learn¬ed the blues by listening to B. B. King,Johnnie Winter, Albert King, and Mud¬dy Waters.Eric Clapton recognizes Guy as an in¬fluence on his career, and visited thebar Guy co-owns, the CheckerboardLounge, this summer along with ex-Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters for anall-night jam session.“The Rolling Stones and the Beatleswere great bridge builders for theblues,” said Ralph Metcalfe, whosefather, the late Ralph Sr., was a hero ofthe 1932 Summer Olympic Games and acongressman from the South Side.Ralph Jr., who currently teaches socialscience at Loop College and resides inHyde Park, added that “societalracism was why the blues fell. Thecommunications moguls dictate thevalues.. .it’s that simple.”The amazing rise to internationaland critical acclaim of Vaughan mightsupport Metcalfe’s point. Vaughan, 27,has gone from playing bars in Austin,Texas to a record deal for CBS’s Epiclabel and a four-continent world tour injust three years. Guy, at 47, records onthe independent Alligator Recordslabel, and continues to play the musicbecause “at my age now, what else canIdo?”Vaughan is white. Guy is black.With its urban renewal policies of the50’s, the University of Chicago helpedtransform 55th Street from a center forlive entertainment to a lifeless collec¬tion of open spaces and townhouses(see “Condemn and Destroy,” GCJ,Sept. 24, 1982). Musicians such as Mud¬dy Waters, Miles Davis, and CharlieParker played there, but the SouthSide’s reputation as the blues center ofChicago has faded. Only Theresa’sLounge and the Checkerboard Lounge,on East 43rd Street, feature nightlyblues entertainment year-round on theSouth Side, while the North Side clubs(B.L.U.E.S. and Kingston Mines, forexample) have soaked up the rest ofthe business.The formation of the student-run Ma¬jor Activities Board in the mid-70’shelped bring blues to campus on occa¬sion. Waters and Koko Taylor playedhere, as have Guy and Wells, LeftyDizz, and Buddy’s brother Phil.Vaughan awed 300 or so spectators inIda Noyes with his live show lastFebruary to highlight MAB’s winterschedule. One of the University’s in¬direct yet important contributions toblues was the band formed by PaulButterfield and Elvin Bishop whilestudents here in the early 60’s.Bishop, who came here in 1960 on aMerit Scholarship, took to the bluesbecause “it’s got a lot of feeling. . .itsounds honest (Maroon, Jan. 12,1968).” Bishop also described the bandas “just a group of musicians” whilefrowning on the music industry for try¬ing to “condition people to hear thingsin categories” such as gospel, rock,pop, etc. Butterfield played atWoodstock, and his recordings in¬troduced Metcalfe to the blues whenMetcalfe attended Choate.“My senior year a guy had a recordby Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and ithad a certain power to it,” said Met¬calfe. “So when I came home I went tothe local record store, and next to PaulButterfield’s album was Junior Wells’Hoodoo Man Blues, so I checked himout, too.

IndianaAve., has given Chicago its blues for over 30 yearsPhotographs of blues artists surround paintings andhand-lettered signs on the walls of the new 43rdStreet location, and its spacious floor area has given73-year old owner Theresa Needham twice the spaceshe had at the original, cozier basement locale.“All of them ;the blues musicians; except old man! Muddy (Waters) and B.B. King got their start! here ..everyone that’s amounted to a hill of beansj today,” said Theresa.Theresa had to relocate her legendary loungewhen her previous landlord planned to renovate thebuilding, but couldn’t receive funding if liquor weresold on the premises. W'hen Theresa tried to renewher liquor license, the commission denied her appli¬cation because she did not have a written lease onher building space. Left no choice, but desiring tokeep the blues tradition alive, Theresa moved herbar a few' blocks northeast, to its current home.She opened the lounge in 1949. and around 1953 shestarted offering live music, and charged 25£ or 50c atthe door. “Blues artists used to come out there,”Theresa said. One of her more famous patrons isharmonica player/singer Junior Wells. Wells, cur¬rently touring with longtime partner Buddy Guy,still frequents thelounge. “Junior started out work¬ing at Pepper’s Lounge, (now' closed), and in 1961 hecame to work for me.” Theresa said. “He was never607 East 43rd Streetinvited, he just went to work there on Friday’s andSaturday's, him and Buddy Guy.”Stories of Theresa’s struggle to keep her bar at heroriginal location reached as far away as France. TheArtwork like this Junior Wells portrait joins alarge collection of photographs on the wallsof Theresa’s and conveys the rich yet largelyunpublicized history of blues on the south sidestory made the front page of the New York Timeslast December, w'hen Theresa, “The Godmother ofthe Blues,” began to exhaust her means to keep thebasement bar open.She doesn’t mind her new location. “It hasn’t beenbad.” she said. “We’ve had some pretty good week¬ends.”Ralph Metcalfe, who received his initiation intothe blues community at the old Theresa’s, called her“a landmark.” Metcalfe tried to save the old There¬sa’s, and called the outcome “a win-win situation.Mr. Walls (William Walls, Jr., the landlord) got hisbuilding, and Theresa got a club that’s twice aslarge.”He added that “we have to change. We have to turnour obstacles to stepping stones,” and said that he“admires the spirit and determination of Theresa.”A night at Theresa’s still costs very little. Thecover charge is one dollar, two on Thursday throughSunday. The bar offers mixed drinks and a small se¬lection of domestic and imported beers, includingOld Style and Michelob on tap Her main fare,though, is the live entertainment. Byther Smith andthe Night Riders is the usual house band, but There¬sa will have several replacements while Smith andhis band tour Scandinavia. Muddy Waters. Jr. andWells also play there.

All-Pro Chicago Bears safety GaryFencik. and other Bears drop in from time to time.The Rolling Stones paid the most famous visit ofall during their 1981 United States tour.Guitarist Buddy Guy co-owns the Lounge, whichhas undergone many changes in the past threeyears.“Every once in a while the city comes through,”said Guy, “and the inspectors ask that this or that bedone.” Recent additions include expanded floor andseating space, a new paint job. a stage platform, andbetter lighting.'When I opened this place people said you couldcarpet the floors and all that,” said Guy. “I like them(blues joints) the way they were when I first gothere...just joints, you know, nothing in particular.”Other than the few minor repairs, Guy noted that“nothing has changed” and added somberly that“maybe that’s why we don’t get anywhere.”The Checkerboard has the hand-lettered signs andthe pictures as does Theresa’s. Many of the musi¬cians will join manager L.C. Thurmond in a cardL. C. Thurmond, manager of the CheckerboardLounge, plays in the seemingly endless cornercard game.game near the entrance, and the atmosphere seemsmore busy and hectic than the more subdued barthat Theresa and her bartender Roosevelt run a few-blocks down 43rd Street.The Checkerboard rarely has its famous visitors,and most nights, for two or three dollars, one canhear Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Pete Allen.Buddy’s brother Phil and the Chicago Machine, orthe 43rd Street Blues Band. Monday nights are jamsession nights, where the musicians gather and jaminformally. “Some days we've started early in themorning.” said Lefty Dizz, who used to run the jamsessions, “and continued till about three in the morn¬ing, straight through.”“People get stubborn when I'm not playing.” saidGuy, who comes to the bar most nights when he’s nottouring. He doesn’t want people going to the Check¬erboard expecting to see him play night after night,especially with other bands on the card.The Checkerboard features a liquor lineup similarto Theresa's: many mixed drinks, and a small selec¬tion of beer in bottles.

Vo¬calists such as Waters and Superstarlike the slower, softer sound from theband so that they don’t have to scream.Syl Johnson, who performed two weeksago at the Checkerboard, uses the tra¬ditional sound on songs like “Is It Be¬cause I’m Black?” while infusing his1983 United Kingdom smash “FineBrown Friend” with a funkier, rapstyle. Every style of blues, thoughmerges simple lyrics emphasizing theproblems of everyday life with mood¬setting music played at volumes,speeds, and strengths as varied as themusicians themselves.Buddy Guy feels that blues receiveslittle or no airplay on white-dominatedradio because “people don’t want to bereminded (of problems) everyday. Theblues speaks exactly about what hap¬pens, the good and the bad.Guv, whom writer Dom McLeesecalled “a guitarist with as much rawtalent as any I’ve encountered”, (Chi¬cago Sun times, March 21, 1982),added “we’re not in a fair place (in themusic business). Everyone is sothumbs-down on us.”The raw power of the blues, accord¬ing to Metcalfe, results from its originsin the deep south during slaverly. “Thefunction of music is to lift the soul,”said Metcalfe, who has loved the bluessince his prep school days at Choate.“But how do you make a slave happy?You have to thunder some heavy musicon him, and that’s why the blues is sotough.”Metcalfe used Lord of Lightning’smusic to illustrate how blues derives itspower from lyrical simplicity and mu¬sical power. “The words are simple,”Metcalfe said. “That’s everybody’s lifehe’s talking about, and he doesn'twaste a lot of words, yet makes a deepimpact. That’s a hallmark of great¬ness.”Many blues artists here on Chicago’sSouth Side perform covers of the legen¬dary songs by Howlin’ Wolf, WillieDixon, Muddy Waters, and LittleWalter, and the lack of original materi¬al dealing with everyday problems ofthe 1980’s hampers the ability of bluesmusic to find a mainstream audience.“You can’t go singing about cottonfields when you have doves crying onthe AM and FM,” said Metcalfe, refer¬ring to Prince’s number on summersingle “When Doves Cry.” He saidsongs like Syl Johnson’s “Fine BrownFriend” have a feel for the modernproblems of getting along, but he stilllays “some criticism on the blues com¬munity itself for repeating old clas¬sics.”Guy sees the same problem. Thoughmany white musicians have made mil¬lions from blues-rock music, “there arevery few black ones still around thelikes of Muddy, the Wolf, and LittleWalter, doing what those guys weredoing, which was original stuff.”Another trademark of the blues is itsaversion to specific political or socialissues. Instead of hooking the listenerwith complaint or condemnation of thepolitics of a particular time period,blues simply tell stories—stories whichat their best compel the listener to afour minute journey through the sex-filled, squalid neighborhood which liessomewhere in everyone’s soul. As Guysaid, “some people don’t want to be re¬minded of that everyday.”Blues bands rely on (and, in fact, in¬vented) the guitar-bass-drums lineup,the standard of rock and roll since the1950’s and currently the “garage band”lineup in an era dominated by com¬puters and keyboards. Blues has avoid¬ed the technology, and the musicalvariations on the standard lineup al¬most never range beyond the additionof horns or keyboards. This may dem¬onstrate a desire for musical purity onthe part of the musicians, but may alsoindicate a lack of attention toward notso much the advances in music techno¬logy. but the advances in productiontechnology as well.“Blues and education are not asso¬ciated; there’s no real organized rela¬tionship, and that’s mainly a lack ofawareness,” said Metcalfe. He addedthat blues “has been poorly financedand underproduced. There aren’t thesame production values applied toblues as to rock.” Because of the oraltradition of the blues, under which mu¬sicians learn by experience from themasters, there have been few struc¬tured attempts to instruct young peoplein the musicianship as well as the cul¬tural importance of blues as an artform. As Metcalfe said about his naive¬te upon arriving at Columbia Universi¬ty, “I went to the music department ex¬pecting to find (James ) Brown.(Howlin’) Wolf, and (Muddy) Waters,and instead I found Bach and Beetho¬ven.”Jimmy Tillman's work with gradeschool youngsters last year is an excep¬tion to that tendency, but demonstratesagain that the blues will only continuestrongly if this present generationpasses it on. The word “strongly” isimportant in this context, becausemany people feel the blues will neverdisappear entirely.“The blues will never die,” said Met¬calfe. “It’s a spirit, a spiritual feeling,of being in the depths of depression.”Stevie Ray Vaughan—the Texasguitarist whose performances on histour, work with David Bowie, and twoEpic Records have made him a starovernight—agrees that the blues hasstaying power. He noted that at liveshows “everyone likes this kind ofmusic. . . it’s real. It’s not a formula toget people to buy records; it’s the realthing.”No matter where one’s taste lies interms of loud, soft, fast, or slow, every¬one can find his story told in the vastblues repertoire.

The Medici lost its lease, effec¬tive sometime in the future, and had tobe moved in stages to the Medici Inter¬national’s location at Harper Court,formerly known as Casa Segunda.Thus there are only two full-time Mexi¬can eateries in Hyde Park.El Lugar is located at 1603 E. 55thStreet, in what was formerly the homeof Morry’s Fried Fish Palace, which isthe spot from which the MorryCorplaunched its crusade for a Mor-Phofos by Arthur U EllisThe Valois “see your food” cafeteria-style concept may be origi¬nal for Hyde Park but it’s also just plain good food.Thai FoodThai food has earned quite a reputa¬tion on both the west and east coasts.Therefore, everyone is lucky that HydePark has a strong contingent of Thairestaurants. If you need it, it is righthere; if you haven’t had it, you musttry it.Thai 55 is located at 1607 E. 55thStreet. As well as a full Thai menu, italso has a limited Chinese-Americanmenu, so you can drag your reluctantfriends along and ease them gently intoThai cuisine. The appetizers are thestrongest part of the menu, so indulgein them.Tipsuda was located at 1649 E. 55thStreet, but has since relocated tolarger digs next door, so you can’t missit. The move was necessitated by thefact that the crowds at Tipsudastretched all the way down to Thai 55.Before moving to the high rent dis¬trict, Tipsuda was known for the sizeand quality (i.e. tastiness, freshness,and spiciness) of its entrees, whichwere offered at reasonable prices.Whether any changes in pricing haveresulted from the move is not yetknown by the Maroon.

Nicky’spizza has a reputation for being moregreasy than any other in Hyde Park.This is not true. Nicky’s is only visiblymore greasy, since it is made in theNew York, or really, the internationalstyle, that is, with the cheese on top ofthe tomatoe sauce. The cheese actuallycooks, instead of just warming, andthus sheds much of its oil. But since ev¬eryone uses the very best cheese, thesame amount of grease is going to leakout of your face no matter whether youeat pizza with the cheese on top or un¬derneath. The real problem withNicky’s pizza is that the thin crust itmakes is not from the New Yorkschool, but from the Liturgical Chris¬tian school of pizza making. That is,the crust has the texture and taste of acommunion wafer.

Afterall, the team hadn’t won more than twofootball games in years. Can he reallybe serious?Well if anyone had doubts, the open¬ing three games of the 1984 season didmuch to erase that skepticism. Despitesuffering their first loss of the seasonSaturday against Knox College, 20-17,the Maroons have looked like con¬tenders in each of their first threegames. The team opened the seasonwith a 12-7 victory over WashingtonUniversity of St. Louis, and travelled toSt. Louis the next weekend to defeatPrincipia, 10-7, for a 2-0 start.Statistics give an accurate picture ofthe strides the Maroons have made.The offense has averaged over 300yards per game — compared to 198only one year ago — and many of those300 yards are the result of a vastly im¬proved ground game. Last year theMaroons, averaging only 88 yardsrushing per game, relied on a pass-oriented attack. This year Chicagoaverages 200 yards a game on theground.Meanwhile, opponents used to enjoyimmense success rushing the footballagainst Chicago. One year of experi¬ence together has vastly improved thefront line, though, and senior co-cap¬tain Steve Kapotas, sophomore An¬drew' Jaffee, and sophomore All-Con¬ference linebacker Ted Repass formthe mid-section of a line that has al¬lowed very little yardage up the mid¬dle.The defense as a whole has playedoutstanding football thus far, and isjust one reason why the Maroons haveoutgained all their opponents at thispoint.So what’s the difference between the1983 and 1984 Maroons? According toEwing, it’s a winning attitude amongthe players. “All of the players arefinding out that they have the ability toplay with anyone in this league,” notesEwing, adding that this year’s team is“a dedicated group who wants to win,and believes it can do it every week.”The Maroon mentor also points to thewealth of experience on the 1984 Chica¬go squad as a big reason for the suc¬cess. “We have talented people at allpositions this year,” he points out.A Surprise from KnoxChicago owned a 17-7 lead with 12minutes left in the game Saturday atStagg Field, but could not contain afourth quarter rally which saw Knoxscore twice to take a 20-17 victory. Thetriumph gives Knox and Chicago 2-1 re¬cords for the season, but more impor¬tantly Knox goes to 1-0 in the confer¬ence, and Chicago falls to 0-1.The Siwash’s come-from-behind vic¬tory spoiled Maroon tailback Bob Dick¬ey’s best afternoon ever. The senior co¬captain, playing the entire gamebecause of tailback Bruce Montella’sinjury, gained 226 yards on 29 carrieswith one touchdown.Knox began its winning drive on itsown 38, where Derrick Freeman brokea couple of big gainers to move Knoxinto Maroon territory at the 40-yardline. Two plays later Repass picked offa Jack Pankau aerial to stifle the Knoxdrive, but Chicago, instead of takingover on its own 25, was called for passinterference on that play, keeping theKnox drive alive. Three plays laterPankau found Chris Bejbl open in thecorner of the end zone for the winningsix points. A pair of Maroon defenderstipped the TD pass, but it reachedBejbl anyway for the decisive score.The Maroons had their work cut outfor them when, on the ensuing kickoff,the Siwash recovered a Dennis Wernerfumble with just over three minutes re¬maining. giving Knox a chance to takeprecious time off the clock. But on 3rd-and-3, Pankau threw' a ball up forgrabs and into the hands of a waitingSteve Kapotas for an interceptionwhich gave the Maroons the ball ontheir own 28 with 1:40 remaining.On that final drive the Maroon of¬fense never really got untracked, al¬though the team was aided by a crucialpass interference call on 4th-and-10 tokeep the drive alive. The Maroonmarch sputtered at the Knox 33, andChicago elected to go for a game-tyingfield goal from 50 yards out. Ewingchose freshman Jim Bonebrake to kickthe field goal rather than the usualkicker, Paul Song, because Bonebrakehas better range. The 50-yard attemptfell helplessly short, however, and theSiwash ran out the clock to take the vic¬tory.Forced out of their balanced attack,Knox went to the air lanes in the fourthquarter. With his team down 17-7, Pan¬kau responded with three key comple¬tions, including two to Bejbl, who fin¬ished the day with a sparkling 7catches for 139 yards and 2 touch¬downs. On lst-and-10 from the Chicago15, Scott Reese, an All-Conference se¬lection last year, carried the ball to theone-foot line, and took it in for the scoretwo plays later to cap a 67-yard Siwashdrive. Tim Ramsey added the extrapoint to cut the deficit to 17-14.The Maroons got the ball back, butthree straight running plays by Dickeyfailed to produce 10 yards, and theMaroons punted to set up Knox's gamewinning drive.The Siwash victory overshadowedDickey’s excellent rushing day, whichincluded an 87-yard gallop late in thethird quarter to give Chicago a 10-7lead at that point. Ewing acknow¬ledged Dickey’s performance as evi¬dence of the leadership he has providedfor the team, but was careful to creditthe offensive line as well. “The offen¬sive line did a tremendous job, andthey’ve been doing it every week.”lauded Ewing, adding his belief that“you can only go as far as your offen¬sive line will take you, and our line isproving it can take us.”The Maroons increased that second-half lead to 17-7 on a 25-yard touchdownpass from Matt Schaefer to tight endGeorge Donovan. Schaefer rolled rightto avoid the steady Siwash pass rush,and found Donovan wide open in theend for the score. Song’s PAT gave theMaroons a seemingly comfortable 10-point lead.Knox had taken a 7-3 lead on a Pan-kau-to-Bejbl pass into heavy Marooncoverage, and Chicago opened thescoring on Song’s fourth field goal thisseason.Ewing commented further on Dick¬ey’s 87-yard run. “It gave us an imme¬diate lift,” he said, who pointed outThe scene all afternoon at Stagg Field Saturday: Bob Dickey runs,Knox chases. Dickey finished with 226 yards rushing, but theMaroons lost, 20-17.yearsthat “this (Bob’s running) proves weare not a one back offense,” an obviousreference to Montella, the fullback-turned-tailback who carried the teamoffensively in the second half of the1983 season and opened 1984 with a 147-yard game before his injury.Knox head coach Joe Campanellicalled Dickey “a very fine runningback.” He also praised the Maroons as“a much improved ball club, and Ithink they can be competitive with any¬one in the league. It’s evident that theyhave a winning attitude and that’s soimportant on a ball club.“I feel very good that our playersfound a way to win.” Campanelli con¬tinued. His Siwash now owm consecu¬tive victories over Illinois College andChicago, and have a unblemished con¬ference record.“I feel very good that our playersfound a way to win.” Campanelli con¬tinued. His Siwash now own consecu¬tive victories over Illinois College andChicago, and have a unblemished con¬ference record.Tomorrow the Maroons take their 0-1conference mark to Iowa, where theywill play Coe College, a Southern Divi¬sion power which has struggled a bitthis year. The Kohawks lost their firsttw'o games before beating Lawrencelast weekend. The Maroons will beseeking their second straight road vic¬tory.Maroons top PrincipiaA short touchdown run in the firstquarter and a 27-yard field goal bySong early in the second quarter wereall Chicago needed to post its secondstraight victory in as many tries,downing Principia. 10-7. It was the sec¬ond straight year the Maroons defeat¬ed the Indians, whom they edged atStagg Field. 21-14, last year.The Principia and Wash U victories,combined with the season-closingtriumph last year, formed the firstthree-game streak since the Maroonsjoined the Midwest Conference in 1976.This also marked the first time that theMaroons had won their first two gamesof the year since joining the confer¬ence. And perhaps most importantly,the victory at Principia gave theMaroons their first road victorv since1978.The 10-7 score makes the game soundcloser than it actually was. TheMaroons controlled the ball most of thegame, running off 76 plays to 56 for theIndians. The Indians’ only score cameon a 55-yard run with just over fourminutes left in the game.Schaefer had an excellent day atquarterback, throwing the ball 20times and completing 10 for 159 yardsand only one interception.

But the University of Chicago,now in the NCAA Division III, hasmanaged to begin a tradition of its ownin the 1980’s by producing All-Americans each year.In the 1983-84 school year, fourMaroons earned All-American honors— a fact which demonstrates that theUniversity can attract not only goodathletic talent, but nationally noticedtalent as well.Martha Kinney, who graduated in thespring, earned her second All-American honors in women's swimm¬ing. Kinney earned a trip to the Na¬tionals with a spectacular performanceat the 1984 Midwest Conference meet,where she shattered four conferencerecords und set five school records. Atthe Nationals in Atlanta she took sixthplace in the 50-yard freestyle.Gretchen Gates, who enters her thirdyear in the College this fall, earned hersecond consecutive All-Americanaward in women’s basketball. Gatesaveraged 20.7 points for the Maroons in1983-84. as well as 10.8 rebounds. TheRochester. Minnesota, native also shot57.6 percent from the floor. TheMaroons finished second in theMidwest Conference to St. Norbert.The Maroon wrestling team finishedthe season ranked 20th nationally inDivision III, and leading that teamwere sophomore Gene Shin and juniorKarl Lietzan. who captured All-American distinction at the champion¬ship meet in Binghamton, New York.Maroon head coach Leo Kocher said“since we ll be returning both of themnext year, I anticipate that the U of Cwill ue ranked in the l op 20 in the pre¬season polls.”Gene ShinKarl LietzanThe Chicago Maroon—Friday, September 28, 1984 — 21SPORTSa pennant?The Third String Can one man winContrary to popular belief, the AL West has a fewplayers who can play baseball, as several Angels,Royals, and Twins (the three teams questing for thedivision crown nobody seems to want) have per¬formed far above expectations in September. Nomatter who finally earns the right to play the Tigersfor the pennant, the AL playoffs could bring us onestep closer to the resolution of an age-old baseballquestion: can one or two hot players carry a team tothe World Series title?Gary Matthews, now with the Cubs, almost single-handedly destroyed the Dodgers in the 1983 NLplayoffs, but couldn’t beat the Orioles alone. Severalplayers on the Angels and Royals rosters are tradi¬tionally strongSeptember-October performers (Reg¬gie Jackson and Bruce Kison, for example). Can theyperform their magic in 1984?“All that talk about the past — it doesn’t matter tome,” said Jackson early in September. “There are 25games to go to see who wins this. It’s that simple.”Who is the Atlas of the AL West in 1984? The statsfrom mid-September reveal a few candidates.Steve Balboni. KC Royals — The Yankees said hecouldn’t play in the majors, and he almost provedthem right by carrying a .225 batting average intoSeptember, and once striking out in 10 straight at-bats.In the 12-game stretch from Sept. 7-19, however,Balboni has hit everything. He hit .372 with 14 RBI,three game-w inning hits, and an .814 slugging per¬centage. His success at the plate has rubbed off onother Royals, including veterans Frank W’hite andJorge (.323) Orta.Frank Viola, Minnesota Twins — Now the ace ofthis young staff, Viola went 3-0 in that same 12-gamestretch, with a 1.78 ERA to boot. The Twins’ top threestarters (John Butcher and Mike Smithson are theother two) have combined for a 2.10 ERA in Sep¬tember (excluding Smithson’s one bad outing) andhave saved an impotent Twins offense more thanonce.Bobby Grich. California Angels — Grich feasted onWhite Sox pitching in mid-September and producedan overall .421 batting mark to go with three homers.10 RBI. and three game-winners. Grich and the otherAngels have needed their September power stroke,for the starting pitching, plagued by injuries sinceOpening Day, has a 5.08 ERA in mid-September.With some better pitching the Angels may have builta significant lead by now.Willie Wilson. KC— Wilson showed in 1984 just how-valuable he is to the Royals’ offense. The team, withfour rookies in the starting rotation and many veter¬ans injured or released, struggled in April and Maywhile Wilson served his suspension for a cocaine con¬viction.In mid-September W’ilson has.stroked 20 hits for a.370 average, stolen six bases, and scored nine runs,a stark contrast to his stretch and post-season perfor¬mance in 1980.A high batting average, of course, does not neces¬sarily mean a player can carry a team. In the same12-game stretch we’ve discussed. Angel catcher BobBoone has hit .361 from the ninth spot in the battingorder. Each of his 13 hits is a single, though, and he’sproduced a mere seven runs.Can the Tigers win more than 100 games and stillnot go to the World Series? They’ll decide that in acouple of weeks, but remember that September andOctober can bring contributions from many unex¬pected sources. Ask a Reds fan from 1972 about GeneTenace, or a 1978 Dodger fan about Brian Doyle, andyou'll understand the point. The Tigers may havewon 100 games, but they have to win when it counts,JlGary MatthewsDave Nelsontoo.# sfe % 'Jfi *Maroon BoonsThe Jerry Koosman “Pass the Ointment, I’ve BeenSnakebit” Award for 1984 goes to F. Valenzuela,whose ERA was lower than 19-game winner J.

But don’t ignore his teammate, lefth¬anded pitcher Mark Langston. Langston has quietlywon his last eight decisions, and has taken over theAL strikeout lead. His 15-9 mark and several low-hitgames show he may succeed where Matt Youngfailed. (Young went to the 1983 All-Star game forSeattle, and has done next to nothing since).* * * * *White Sox first base coach Dave Nelson put lastyear’s AL West division race in perspective. “Therewas a race, but in the last month we beat up on someteams that were struggling. We did have everythinggoing for us.” The Sox won the division by 20 games,padding the cushion against Seattle, Texas, and theawful 1983 Twins in September. —FLHow ’bout them Bucs? They did have the best pit¬ching in the league, just lika I said they would. Theydid get as far as their left-handed hitting carriedthem (D. Frobel hit .200 with 30 RBI’s; and J.Thompson hit about as much as he can press in thegym, about .250), just like I said it would. So shut upyou! if you are ready to gloat that almost all mypredictions of April 6, 1984 were incorrect. At least Ipicked San Diego, and, in most cases, asdemonstrated with the Pirates above, at least myanalysis was correct.I could not help it that this was the year that thecast-off, misfit, and geriatric franchises chose to pullthemselves up by their sanitary stockings. 1 did notsee coming the revolution that would see the fat andindolent ruling class of baseball lose their means ofproduction, and so fall into the second division. ButSome superstars have a different work ethic fromtheir comrades, as Ryne Sandberg and DarrylStrawberry showed during the Cubs’ last home-stand.“I plan to work over the winter, to get stronger,and to keep in shape like 1 did last winter.” saidSandberg, the 25-year old Cubs’ second baseman andleading candidate for the National League MVP.When asked what ne’d do this winter, Strawberry,the Mets’ number one draft choice in 1981, responded“Take it easy.”* * *Greg Walker has been one of the few bright spots ina dismal White Sox season. Walker, hitting consis¬tently all year, exploded at the end of August with a667 (20-for-30) stretch, and has hit roughly .500 in themonth of September.Now,if only histeammatescould have gotten hot.ifc *$(NameGABRHRBIAvgBob W i 1 f o n g, Cal718111.067Parrel Thomas, Cal923•3?.130Fat Sheridan, KC9°444.167Gary Gaetti, Minn.1242292.214* * *And finally, the 1984 Hurricane Hazel Award goesto Britt Burns of the White Sox, who tore the Ameri¬can League apart in September ’83, but has a 3-11 re¬cord in 1984, including a 1-3 September mark with a7.71 ERA.let no man write my epitaph. Never let it be said thatmy lips formed the mea culpa (although mine was in¬deed a maxima culpa). I got paid just the same, andnow I will interpret the results of the ’84 NationalLeague Season, so as to earn a little more money.In alphabetical order and within divisions —How bout them Cards? I said that the Cardinalshad the best hitting lineup in the league, and on paperthey did. The problem here was that not one Cardinalin the regular lineup batted as high as his lifetimebatting average. Above it all B. Sutter convinced methat he is the most unhittable reliever ever created.And Whitey Herzog convinced me that he is the mostconfused manager ever to win a World Series.How ’bout them Cubbie Bears? I said they wouldgo as far as their starting pitching took them, and theunhittable Mr. Sutcliffe seems to have taken them tothe playoffs. The Cubs also hit enough to cover thedefensive liabilities at third and shortstop, just as Itold them to. Hold on, brave Cubbies, the fate ofbaseball in sunshine rests in your hands.How ’bout them Expos? Do you think they all wentto Penn and the U. of C.? These guys are just losers,no matter how well they seem to play. Excuse me,these guys are .500, no matter how well they seem toplay. Good thing P. Rose got out of there.How ’bout them Metsies? The Mets establishedmany of their young players as exceptional majorleaguers in ’84, but the real fun for Mets fans willcome when all these guys stop making the mistakescommon to all baseball youth. The Mets have plentyof time to hit their full stride, and it will probablyhappen just as the Cubs’ ’84 trades come back tohaunt the 1984 Executive of the Year.How ’bout them Phils? At once they did better andworse than I thought they would. I picked them forfourth place, but I dreaded that they might win thedivision again. V. Hayes played better than I sar¬castically predicted he would, and I do apologize. J.Samuel did materialize, despite his awesome PacificCoast League credentials. But the Phils just madetoo many errors, like trading Sandberg, Dernier, andMatthews.How ’bout them Pirates? Boy their pitchers canhit. I think they should start a five man exhibitionsoftball team and barnstorm the South over thewinter.How ’bout them Astros? I thought they would finish.500. but I didn’t think that they would finish in thefirst division. The old guys hit and pitched very well,but Dallas got the Republican convention.How ’bout them Braves? They go through thirdbasemen faster than Royko goes through socks. TheBraves won’t do anything until they get a full yearfrom B. Horner and C. Nokahoma. Joe Torre has tostop importing losers from his Met days (how'will L.Mazzilli look in a Braves uniform?). I guess thatCoach Pignatano can’t get the victory tomatoes togrow in the red soil of Georgia.How ’bout them Dodgers? For a perspective of the’84 Dodger season see Georg Marek’s Decline andFall of the Hapsburg Empire. There is one slight dif¬ference in that the House of O’Malley got to keep itsItalian possession before the collapse, whereas theHouse of Hapsburg had to give its Italian possessikonup before the final collapse.How ’bout them Giants? They just haven’t been thesame since they changed their name (from Jintes toGiants). The good Lord giveth, to B. Brenly, andtaketh away, from J. LeMaster. Maybe he just loan¬ed it to LeMaster for a season, or maybe LeMastersold his soul. I still maintain that the Giants shouldhave been much better this year, and they mighthave been if Frank Robinson had beaten up a few'players before he was pushed out of the way by anagglomeration of clubhouse lawyers and clubhousedecorators.How’ ’bout them Padres? You gotta love ’em. Sothey still wear brown, at least they finished wherethey were supposed to. The Padres won in the mostefficient manner; T. Gwynn pledged to hit nothingbut singles and G. Nettles pledged to hit nothing buthomers. But sin reared its hideous face in paradise,and the Padres have been paying for their beanballtransgressions by limping to the title since thatfateful day. But the Friars of San Diego will call upontheir three members of the Vern Rapp Society torescue them from the forces of intemperance,decadence, corruption, and baseball in brisk air,those ever-lovin’ Cubbie Bears from Old Chicago.How ’bout them Reds? They might not finish last inthe standings but at least they finish last inalphabetical order, reaffirming my belief in divinejustice. Although I was wrong about D. Parer (over90 RBI’s), it didn’t matter, because the rest or theteam was bad enough to cover for him. They had thegood judgement to fire Vern Rapp and to reacquireP. (Pete) Rose. I have a theory about the return ofRose, A. Perez, and GM R. Howsam to the Reds atthis late date. Buoyed by the success of dream weeksheld by the ’69 Cubs, ’67 Cardinals, and the ’69 Mets,the Reds are trying to reassemble a dream team ofthe Big Red Machinata, so as to give major leagueplayers half the age of the ’70-76 Reds to fulfill theirdreams by playing against the legends of their youth.Cheapness abounds in the Reds’s organization, solook for them to bring back E. Armbrister in ’85.-DACFrank LubyDennis Chansky22—The Chicago Maroon—Friday, September 28, 1984SPORTSTitle IX and ABC-TV help women’s v-ballRv fZanff Charm, ■By Geoff SherryAs demonstrated by meganetworkABC’s outstanding coverage ofwomen’s volleyball throughout the 1984Summer Olympic Games, the 90-yearold pastime previously confined to sec¬ond hand gymnasiums and sandybeaches has emerged as a seriousspectator sport. Yet, unfortunately forwomen’s volleyball and women’s ath¬letics in general, the road to successhas been long and torturous. The mostrecent blow to its advancement re¬volves around the apparent narrowingof the power of Title IX, which couldnot have very detrimental ramifica¬tions for the world of women’s sports.Having progressed from very hum¬ble beginnings, volleyball was inventedin 1895 by William G. Morgan, thendirector of the Holyoke, MassachusettsYMCA. Morgan desired a substitutefor basketball that would eliminatebodily contact while maintaining ahigh level of intensity. Though at firstprimarily a sport for men, volleyballbegan to expand in 1929 with the estab¬lishment of the United States Volley¬ball Association (USVA). Nearly 20years later larger steps were takenwhen the International Volleyball As¬sociation formed in 1947. Stemmingfrom the IVA and coupled with in¬creased worldwide interest, men’s andwomen’s volleyball were inducted asOlympic events at the Tokyo games in1964.However, not before this year’sOlympic competition has women’s vol¬leyball been so widely received. Al¬though the matches were played in theLong Beach area (away from the mainLos Angeles/Pauley Pavilion axis), thecrowds were very large and positive.Ron Rapaport, sports columnist for theChicago Sun-Times, commented,“There was all kinds of spectator inter¬est, for a variety of reasons; mainlythe home fans didn’t have far to go, butwanted to get involved in the Olym¬pics.” Whether this sudden interest di¬minishes or flourishes will depend onnumerous variables. As Rapaportadded, “Whether this interest will allfilter down depends on how young girlswill get interested and carry thingsthrough. It’s just like gymnastics.”Though strides have been made inthe recognition and popularity ofwomen’s volleyball, women’s athleticson the whole must now concern itselfwith the controversy surrounding TitleIX. Title IX, as enacted in the early70s, threatened to withhold federalfunds from any institution which didnot supply equal opportunities in any“program or activity” for both sexes.However, in the recent Grove Citycase, the Supreme Court interpretedthe language “program or activity”very narrowly. This will allow certainschools to take losses in federal fundsonly in those programs or activities inwhich the discrimination exists. Thecontroversy has many experts worriedthat women’s athletics will suffer fromthe same pre-70’s symptoms of lack offunding and overall apathetic inter¬est.According to the Sept. 16 CBS “Facethe Nation,” only 16,000 women com¬peted in collegiate athletics prior to theenactment of Title IX. However, beforethe Grove City case, over 160,000women across the nation took part incollege sports. Flo Hyman, standoutmember of the silver medalist 1984women’s volleyball team, told CBSNews that “I wouldn’t have receivedmy scholarship if Title IX had not beenenacted... and I am not alone.”This fall the University of Chicagowill boast four women’s varsity sportsteams, including cross country, tennis,field hockey, and volleyball. The ma¬jority of these teams will begin theirhome season this weekend.Cubs, Mets send fans a message for 984It looks as though this will not be awatershed year in American politics,and nowhere is this more evident thanin the absolute dearth of imaginativeslogans in the ’84 political campaigns.R. Reagan runs the usual references toleadership and mobility imposed on theAmerican flag. W. “F.” Mondale runsthe usual populist sentiments imposedon a picture of Mrs. Ferraro. Even G.Hart’s “New Ideas” were a retread ofJ. Anderson’s 1980 slogan. Thus, thehistorical theory of compensation be¬ing what it is, that a society in thepolitical doldrums will make tremen¬dous strides in advancing its highculture, it should not be surprising thatthe most interesting race with the snap¬piest, most meaningful slogans tookplace in the National League East in1984.The Metsies versus the Cubbie Bearsfor the Eastern Division title.Whodathunkit? Not I, at least not in '84(see Third String, April 6, 1984). Butthe good folks on Madison Avenue cer¬tainly did. The Mets started the seasonwith a whole bunch of untested rookiepitchers and a slogan, “Catch the Ris¬ing Stars.” It turned out to be an ex¬cellent slogan, because the young pit¬chers indeed became stars, especiallyD. Gooden, who is having the greatestrookie season of any pitcher ever. Butit was an excellent slogan because itimplied that the Mets would be a muchimproved team in ’84, maybe even acontender. Yet, it did not promiseanything about winning, only that therewould be good young talent on theteam. Such a phrase as “Catch the Ris¬ing Stars” is perfect for a team, which,to use a political expression, is runningfor ’85. Any victories past the break¬even point are all extra, added goodiesto whet the appetite of the fans and toserve notice to the opposition. Andwhen the surprising young team couldnot muster enough strength down thestretch to beat the frontrunner, well,they never promised that they would bein the race at all (as the Mets did intheir earlier advertising disaster “TheMagic is Back,” for apparently it wasall black magic as the Mets still finish¬ed last). A warning to the Mets: H.Stassen was once a rising star.As for those Cubbies, not only willthey sweep MVP, the Cy Young,Manager of the Year, and Executive ofthe Year, but they should win the Ad¬man of the Year award for the personwho came up with their 1984 slogan,“We’ll Surprise the Daylights Out ofYou.” That slogan ranks right up therewith the classics of the past, with G.Wallace’s “Send them a Message” and.also from 1968, R. M. Nixon’s “Thistime, vote as if YOUR whole worlddepended on it!” It is very importantthat the Cubbies have a good slogan,for more than any other team, the Cub¬bies have a constituency rather thanjust fans. Maybe it is more of a cultthan a constituency.The Cult of the Cubbie Bear neverseemed to recover from the misin¬formation it was fed in the form of thebiggest advertising disaster since Mrs.Roosevelt’s margarine commercials:“The Cubs will Shine in ’69.” In fact,Cub fans seemed to be, on the average,more cynical than New Yorkers, atleast when it comes to baseball. TheCultists force the Cubbies to be an un¬pretentious team from an unpreten¬tious region, or maybe just asuperstitious team from a superstitiousregion. So as the Cubbies continue to“surprise the daylights” (and, ABCand NBC, we do mean daylights) out ofbaseball, it makes 1969 seem like so¬meone else’s lifetime, and it makes thisseason’s triumph, even should it endwith the divisional title, more glorious.The Chicago Maroon expanded its sportscoverage last year, and continues to grow.

Football, tennis deadlines Oct. 3If you are an incoming student, espe¬cially College student, don’t let the ear¬ful of “life of mind"* and “aims of edu¬cation” talks this week fool youcompletely. When you look up fromyour Marx Engels Reader in a coupleof weeks, you’ll notice that this schoolunabashedly supports an intramuralsports program accomodating every¬one from the most passive Reg Rat tothose who take everything from touchfootball to table tennis very seriously.Intramural Director KevinMcCarthy has announced severalchanges in the Intramural Departmentfor the 1984-85 school year. Thechanges, designed to strengthen all thenon-varsity programs at the Universi¬ty and to increase student involve¬ment, show that the department hasmore than simply fine-tuned a pro¬gram which already involves 75 per¬cent of the student body.“Things will be quite different thisyear,” said McCarthy, who said the oldIntramural Department now encom¬passes three offices: intramural, openrecreation, and club sports. McCarthy,who ran only intramurals last year,will oversee the entire operation, whilefaculty advisors will head each individ¬ual office.Jim Wiseman, an assistant Maroonfootball coach, heads the University'sextensive club sports program, whichMcCarthy said satisfies “students in¬terested in pursuing competitive recre¬ation which we don’t offer at the inter¬collegiate level.”The club program includes women’ssoccer, crew, lacrosse, and rugbyamong its wide range of offerings, andmany clubs regularly face a full sched¬ule of other colleges and universities.The club sports have a new manualas well. The new set of guidelines,more complete and more comprehen¬sive, “will allow us to run things in amore professional manner, and makethe clubs more accountable.” saidMcCarthv.The open recreation program bringsfaculty, staff, and students together incompetition independent of the intra¬mural leagues. Bill Simms—whoseother duties include running the SportsInformation Department and coachingthe defending Midwest Conferencechampion men’s tennis team—will runthe open recreation department thisyear.Finally. Pam Kilday will organizethe myriad leagues and tournamentsknown collectively on * campus as“IM’s.” Kilday. who is also the new as¬sistant women’s basketball coach,takes over the IM job McCarthy per¬formed exclusively last year. Each de¬partment reports back to McCarthy.racquetball tournament, the top 10 percent will now receive points, rangingfrom 100 for first, 90 for second, etc. Ifonly 50 people participate, then the top10 per cent of the entrants receive 50points for first, 45 for second, and soforth, with the total number of partici¬pants always determining the maxi¬mum number of points a house canearn.• This really puts more emphasis onSmall Houses Arise!Among the many changes in the IMprogram is the new system for deter¬mining the All-University championsfor the year. Throughout the schoolyear houses accumulate points forcompeting in the many IM events, andthe larger houses such as Hitchcock(men’s), Upper Wallace (women’s),and Hitchcock/Snell (coed) dominatethe race because they have more resi¬dents than the dormitory system’ssmaller houses.This year the houses will divide intwo divisions, ‘large house’ and ‘smallhouse’, and the winner in each divisionreceives a plaque at the end of theyear. The house which scores the mosttotal points will then receive the All-University trophy.“This lets the small houses vie forsomething tangible at the end of theyear, when before they had no chance(at an All-University award),”McCarthy said.The scoring for all the IM individualtournaments, such as tennis and rac¬quetball. has been changed as well. Apro-rated system will replace lastyear's “very complicated" system,McCarthy explained.If, for example. 100 people enter theKevin McCarthyteam sports, and on much more houseparticipation,” said McCarthy.Varsity AthletesIn previous years a student who let¬tered in a varsity sport either here orat another college could not play thatsport in the undergraduate IM leagues,but could play for any graduate levelteam. The rule has stiffened thisyear.“Now if you play a varsity sport, andyou letter in that academic year,” ex¬plained McCarthy, “you can’t play thatsport in the undergraduate or graduateleague in that same acedmic year.”Taking one year off from the particularsport will enable the student to playthat sport in the graduate leagues, butthe undergraduate leagues are perma¬nently closed to him.McCarthy called last year a “transi¬tion year” and said “we changed somepolicies which took some people by sur¬prise.” In all, though, he thought theyear passed smoothly with the cooper¬ation of the students and his staff.This year the IM office needs refer¬ees. as the department has made somechanges in order to “reduce (referee)absenteeism and improve quality.”McCarthy said the department is try¬ing “to find as many officials as we canwho want to work three nights a weekfor football and two nights a week forbasketball.” The IM department willtrain the regular officials, and paythem more than they pay the officialsrepresenting the houses. If you are in-tersted in officiating call the IM de¬partment at 962-9557 or visit the IM of¬fice in Bartlett Gym.More reminders: October 3 is thedeadline for all entries for touch foot¬ball, and for men’s and women’s sin¬gles tennis. All other fall entries aredue on October 10, and anyone whoplaved IM’s last year will tell you thatthe office makes absolutely no excep¬tions...Upperclassmen and IM chairmenshould make sure that the freshmenknow that everyone playing a teamsport must bring his or her ID card toevery game...McCarthy said the football seasonwill still last five games, and all theother seasons will remain the same inlength as last year except for coed vol¬leyball and soccer, which will hopeful¬ly gain an extra regular season game.NEW LOCATION!!!The Intramural and Recreational Sports Office isnow located at 5640 University in BartlettGymnasium - Room 140.looking for students interested inbecoming IM football officials.

SeniorJack Look will play the number oneSoccer splitsThe University of Chicago varsitysoccer team split its two games on itsIowa road trip last weekend. Strongmidfield play and a balanced scoringattack helped the Maroons defeat Cor¬nell, 4-0, on Saturday, while Grinnellused its tremendous home field advan¬tage to stop the Maroons, 4-0, on Sun¬day afternoon.The Maroons open their conferenceschedule tomorrow at Beloit College.Freshman Andy Brown opened thescoring against the Rams on Saturdaywhen he pushed in a pass from forwardDave Ansani. Ansani later hiked thecount to 2-0 with a penalty kick, andthen junior Dave Anieves — playingvarsity for the first time — scored thegame’s third goal.Dave Weiss finished the scoring witha drive from just inside the penaltybox, with an assist to freshman mid¬fielder Julian Anderson.“We played really well on Satur¬day,” said Maroon head coach BarryDeSilva, who has one of the deepestsquads in his eight-year coaching ca¬reer here. “Andy Brown controlled thewhole game at center midfield for us,”he added, praising the first-year stu¬dent from Livermore, California.Brown and the other freshmen had toreturn home after the Cornell game sothey could begin Orientation on Sun-singles post for the fourth straight yearand is the defending conference champat number one. Playing the numbertwo spot for the fourth straight year issenior Beth Fama, also a defendingconference champion at her position.Senior Caren Gauvreau, 1983 con¬ference runner-up at third singles,maintains her position for the upcom¬ing season.Senior Stephanie Falk, coming backfrom a knee injury, will play thenumber four spot and hopes to seemore action on the court than in thetraining room. Junior Krista Choi, lastyear’s conference semifinalist atnumber six, moves up a notch tonumber five. Playing number six isHeather Harlan, a new addition to theon Iowa tripday. The change in midfield personnel,coupled with the challenges of playingthe Pioneers on their home turf, keptthe Maroons from gaining control ofthe tempo.Stacked DeckHad the freshman stayed for Sun¬day’s game they would have received alesson in Midwest Conference officiat¬ing. Especially in soccer and basket¬ball, the home team receives the edgein calls from its officials, and the gamebecomes more physical and disorgan¬ized as a result. Backed as well with itslarge and enthusiastic crowds, the Pio¬neers — the defending Midwest Confer¬ence south division champs — playedtheir own ball game.The Pioneers scored about threeminutes before halftime to take a 1-0lead at the intermission, but scoredthree more goals in the more physicalsecond half. A penalty kick and acorner kick produced two more goals,with the other goal coming on a shotfrom three yards in front of the Maroonnet.“Not having them (the freshman)definitely did hurt us,” said DeSilva,who will have his full contingent for to¬morrow’s conference game at Beloit.The Maroons defeated the Buccaneers,5-2. at Stagg Field last year behind An-sani's three goals.Maroons have youth,depthOver 35 hopefuls arrived for varsitysoccer practice on Sept. 17. and headcoach Barry DeSilva will take a squadof roughly 20 players into this week¬end’s conference opener against theBeloit Buccaneers. The unusually highpre-season turnout has given DeSilva’ssquad— a blend of freshmen, playerswho have returned after a year or twoof absence, and a core of returning un¬derclassmen—the depth it needs for itsgrueling 14-game scheulde.“With the exception of a few mainplayers we can replace any otherplayer on the field with another justabout as good,” said DeSilva. Leadingthis year’s squad is the last line of de¬fense: goalkeeper Joe Mario andsweeper Bo Flores, both All-Confer¬ence selections last fall. Last year’scaptain John Paul McCarthy, seniorAlex Pound, and sophomore Ernest“Elvis” Fielder round out the probablestarting backfield, but Dave Andersonand Andy Valvano are competing forplaying time.Anderson, a freshman from Prince¬ton, New Jersey, has impressed DeSil¬va thus far, and Valvano last played afull season for the Maroons in 1981.A pair of returning starters, includ¬ing All-Conference outside halfbackJason Pressman, team with freshmanAndy Brown in the Maroon midfield.William Penn starts at left outside,while Brown controls the middle.“He’s a hell of a player,” said DeSil¬va of Brown, whom he later called “mynumber one draft choice last year.”Freshman Julian Anderson has alsoseen action at midfield, and DeSilvahas freshmen Karim Kamel (NewYork, New York) and Miguel Azar(Edina, Minnesota) to back them up.Azar has yet to see action because of aninjured ankle.Dave Ansani joins junior wingerMark Scolforo and veteran forwardDave Weiss on the forward line, butDeSilva has three able back-ups innewcomer Dave Anieves (one goalversus Cornell last Saturday), sopho¬more Alvin Marr, and freshman PaulOstriecimski (Chicago, Illinois).The Maroons play in the MidwestConference’s North Division, and the1984 Coaches’ Poll produced no clearfavorite in this year’s race. Chicago,which finished second last year, willchallenge defending champion LakeForest College and last year’s thirdplace team, Beloit. The Forestersalways have a high scoring offense anda deep bench, and this fall they havemore returning lettermen (22 r than theMaroons have men.Andy Brown leads a group of ta¬lented soccer freshmen this yearYour first look at the 1984 Maroonscomes Wednesday when the Maroonshost a strong Rockford College team at4 p.m. One week from today theMaroons will battle St. Norbert Collegeat 3 p.m. Each home same is at StaggField.team. Rounding out the roster arejunior Connie Lavieri and sophomoresMargaret Lynche, Mona Saraiya andAnindita Sengupt. The team alsoawaits the return of junior CarrieVeach. Veach was the conference run¬ner up at number four singles last year.A key factor in the Maroon’s pro¬spects will be the performance of thedoubles teams. Returning at firstdoubles are Look and Fama, the defen¬ding conference champions at numberone. Falk and Gauvreau are currentlythe number two duo. Gauvreau playedon last year’s number two conferencechampion team. Lastly, Choi andHarlan hold down the number threespot.Thus, with the above lineup theMaroons traveled to IIT in their open¬ing match. Notching singles victorieswere Look, Gauvreau, Falk and Choi.Chicago’s double’s teams proved tootough for IIT as the Maroons swept allthree doubles positions.ference rival Lawrence UniversitySaturday at the Ingleside Courts.Posting victories were Look, Fama,Gauvreau, Falk, Choi and Harlan — aclean sweep of the singles spots.

I’m confident we’llhave a fun and exciting season, and Ilook forward to being a part of it.”Field hockey coach Linda Whitehead discusses technique with second-year player Arzou Ahsan. Whitehead expects a stronger Maroon of¬fense this year.Field hockey seeks more offenseBy Geoff SherryStocked with nine returning letterwinners and a talented crop of rookies,the University of Chicago women’sfield hockey team travels to LakeForest College tomorrow for a mini¬tournament with Lake Forest Collegeand Valparaiso University. Coach Lin¬da Whitehead hopes a strong offensiveattack will enable the team to improveon last year’s 6-8-3 season.The loss of eight seniors to gradua¬tion, including leading scorer HelenStraus and record-setting goalieMaureen Breen, should be overshadow¬ed by the Maroons strong young core ofplayers. Whitehead-commented, “Wehave a very young team. . .we are veryenthusiastic.”The team plans to shift gears andconcentrate on a strong attack in com¬parison with last year’s tenaciousdefense and less than potent offense.Whitehead points out that the Maroonscontrolled the majority of last year'sgames, but could not capitalize on scor¬ing opportunities. The Maroons outshottheir opponents last year. 426-347, yetwere outscored 35-26. The loss of bothgoalies, Breen and Daniela Braucher,poses somewhat of a problem forWhitehead, although transfer studentMichelle Gavens and rookie YvertzBaptiste hope to fill the vacancy ade¬quately. Gavens, an experienced goaliefrom Babson College, will receive top-notch coaching as will Baptiste,because Breen will aid Whitehead as anassistant coach this season.Defensive standouts Beth Lasky andTracy Button, both seniors, will returnto form an experienced core for theMaroons’ backs. Also, CarolineChristen, Kathleen Lively, MegMalloy, Arzou Ahsan, and PaminaHaddock — all contributors in lastyear's scoring — will return to provideWhitehead with a hopefully potent scor¬ing attack.Practice began September 17, withthe Maroons' first game las* weekendat Sauk Valley, MI. “We are workingon our endurance and speed work. Ihave been very impressed with theskills of the team. The stickwork isoutstanding/’ added Whitehead.After returning from Lake Forestthis weekend.

Theteam will miss not only their athletictalents but their leadership as well.However, assistant coach Kennedynotes, “We have four seniors returningfrom last year’s squad, all of which arecapable of taking leadership roles.”The seniors include All-Conference acespiker Celeste Travis, setters SheilaDugan and Dana Pryde, and spikerWendy Pietrzak.According to Kennedy, last year’s 514 was not indicative of the team’stalent, but was partially due to a lack of“emotional depth.” She commented,“This team has come back to pre¬season in much better physical condi¬tion. They are prepared to be com¬petitive in both physical and emotionalcapacities.”The Maroons compete in the NorthDivision of the Midwest Athletic Con¬ference.

For quite some time,Chicago was regarded in most sportsas the doormat of the Midwest Confer¬ence, and spent a few years as perenni¬al also-rans that could be counted aseasy games on the schedule.But that image is changing. Recentlya number of Maroon teams have notonly gained respectability, but alsohave emerged as conference con¬tenders. The wrestling team, for in¬stance, won the conference title lastyear, finished ranked 20th in the Divi¬sion 111 ratings, and produced two All-Americans.Getting the information about Chica¬go’s sports teams out to other schoolsand getting individuals their deservedrecognition, however, has not been oneof the athletic program’s strengthsduring this metamorphosis. But likeChicago’s reputation around the con¬ference, things are changing for thebetter in that area as well. At the rec¬ommendation of several varsitycoaches, the University is currently or¬ganizing a Sports Information Office tocombat the lack of publicity.Bill Simms heads the newly initiateddepartment. Simms — who also servesas coach of the defending Midwest Con¬ference champion Maroon men’stennis team — said one of the goals ofthe department is “to get more elabo¬rate coverage of every sport — not justat the conference level, but at the na¬tional level.” Simms will be assisted byMark Blocker, a fourth-year student inthe College who has worked as the foot¬ball writer for the Chicago Maroon.Separate DepartmentA short history of the sports informa¬tion network at the U of C points out theproblem. Until now, the University Of¬fice of Public Information handled allthe sports information matters. Thatoffice, however, is located in the Ad-WHPK improves coverage and soundAfter two “transitional” years,WHPK — the campus radio station at88.3 FM — will broadcast every Uni¬versity of Chicago football game, homeand away, for the 1984 season. In¬creased cooperation from the athleticdepartment allowed the station to ex¬pand its schedule, which included allhome games but only two road gamesin 1983.“The people who made the dif¬ference are the athletic departmentand Mary Jean Mulvaney,” said Ro¬senbaum, the WHPK sports director.Barry Waterman joins Rosenbaum forplay-by-play, and Manuel Chaknis pro¬vides the color commentary.The athletic department’s assistanceto WHPK indicates the department’swillingness to promote the school's ath¬letics. The department established asports information office this year tojoin WHPK and the Maroon in an at¬tempt to give Chicago’s athletics itsdue.“Everyone’s trying to build theschool up, both in sports and in itsimage,” said Waterman, who workedas a DJ for the station prior to takingthe play-by-play job.“It just takes some effort,” headded. “We have to make peopleaware of what’s going on. to get themout to the games.”Improved engineering has greatlyenhanced the station's sports cover¬age. "Bill Partvka and Bill Mayloneare outstanding, excellent — theymake this place go,” said Rosenbaum,a Los Angeles native who has workedas a stringer for ABC. Partvka hasdone broadcast engineering profes¬sionally, and he and Maylone workedat WFMT in Chicago, “which gives usessentially two professionals,” saidRosenbaum.Waterman expressed interest inbroadcasting sports when Rosenbaumbegan assembling the broadcast team.“Barry knew I had played football andBarry had his jazz show,” said Chak¬nis, who plave high school ball in Geor¬gia. The trio. then, “fell together” asChaknis said, and is getting used toworking together on the air.WHPK will carry tomorrow’s Chica-go-Coe game live from Cedar Rapids,IA, and the coverage begins at 1:05with the pre-game show.In addition to the football schedule.WHPK plans to carry men’s andwomen’s basketball this year. Rosen¬baum hopes that the station will beable to carry this December’s meetingbetween the Chicago men’s team andthe Northwestern Wildcats in Evan¬ston, but “we haven’t made up the finalschedule yet.” WHPK station managerWHPK’s team (I. to r.) is Craig Ro¬senbaum, Barry Waterman, andManuel ChaknisJeff Brill and program director ErnieGrove have provided Rosenbaum withsome flexibility, and this gesture dem¬onstrates the station’s overall commit¬ment to “enhance extracurricular ac¬tivities at the University, includingsports,” Rosenbaum said.ministration Building, and is notstaffed to any significant degree bypeople closely connected with the ath¬letic department. Additionally, this of¬fice released all kinds of other informa¬tion and did not deal exclusively inathletic news. Creating the Sports In¬formation Department brings the per¬sonnel closer to the source, for its of¬fice adjoins the other athletic offices inBartlett Gym, and the athletic depart¬ment selected a full-time facultymember and a student to share the re¬sponsibilities.Although Simms and Blocker arestill in the process of organizing, they•do have some immediate plans, themost noteworthy of which is a sportsbulletin which the department willsend weekly to conference schools.This bulletin will contain scores, sched¬ules of upcoming games, and a sum¬mary of the week’s action for the var¬sity "sports. It will resemble the sportsmailings of the other Midwest Confer¬ence schools.According to Simms, “we (the U ofC) have a lot of people who are proba¬bly eligible for Academic All-Ameri¬can status, but because of the lack ofPR. they don’t get the recognition theydeserve.” Simms readily admits, how¬ever, that the sports bulletin also helpsfulfill Chicago’s obligation to keep therest of the conference informed. “In allother cases,” notes Simms, “there isan efficiently functioning Sports Infor¬mation Office.”Student input into the sports infor¬mation department is a fairly standardpractice throughout the Midwest Con¬ference. At Lake Forest, a job similarto Blocker’s is performed by MarkVruno, who is a quarterback on theForester football team in addition tohis sports information duties. Joe Ri-penger, a student at Knox, coordinatesall press releases with two facultymembers, and also gathers advertise¬ments for the game programs on acommission basis.SPORTSMaroon ScoreboardSCHEDULESWOMEN’S TENNISSept. 28, 29Fri.

The Maroons capitalized ontint opportunity when Song kicked a25-yard field goal to give Chicago a 3-0leal with almost 10 minutes left in theopening period.V\ ith time running out in the first halfthe Bears seemed content to run outthe clock and settle for a 3-0 deficit atintermission. But a few big gainers onthe ground and a Chicago holding pen¬alty moved the Bears quickly down thefield, and on the 10th play of the drive,with just 30 seconds remaining in thefirst half, Steve Sides found Todd Bow¬man open in the end zone for a 16-yardtouchdown strike. Keith Van Horne’sPAT gave the Bears a 7-3 halftimelead.Song cut that lead early in the secondhalf with his second field goal of thegame, this one from 34 yards out.Song’s three-pointer was the culmina¬tion of an awesome ball-control driveby Chicago. Taking the opening kickoffof the second half at their own 22, theMaroons drove 62 yards in 18 plays —17 of them on the ground — and usedover 10 minutes in doing so. TheMaroons controlled the ball for most ofthe day, running 75 offensive plays to amere 42 for Washington University.On their next possession, following ashort Bear punt, the Maroons againused a ball-control offense to drive 55yards for the go-ahead touchdown.Montella, who wound up with 30 carriesfor 147 yards on the day to lead allrushers, negotiated the final 17 yardson a sweep around the right end to giveChicago a 12-7 lead they would neverrelinquish."This is the kind of game we expect¬ed of Bruce,” said Ewing of Montella."But give the offensive line a lot ofcredit — they were really coming offthe ball well today” Ewing singled outMike Marietti as having had an out¬standing day at the left tackle position,although he was generally pleased withthe offensive line as a whole.The Bears threatened late in thegame, driving deep into Chicago terri¬tory for an apparent go-ahead TD. Butwith a lst-and-10 at the Chicago 29,Dave Baker, a second-year standout atlinebacker, tipped a Sides’ pitchoutand recovered the loose ball with 2:48left to preserve the Maroon victory."It was just a great play; it’s thekind of play a winner would make.”said Ewing, referring to Baker’s fum¬ble recovery. "He’s an outstanding lin¬ebacker — he has great technique, inall respects,” chimed Ewing.Chicago’s overall defense was alsoinstrumental in the victory. The Bearsattempted to run the ball 24 times andgained minus nine yards. They man¬aged only 78 yards passing on theMaroon secondary, for a grand total of69 yards of total offense. The Maroons,meanwhile, gained 190 yards on theground and another 75 through theair.Again, the Maroons face Coe College(1-2) in Cedar Rapids, Iowa tomor¬row.The Chicago Maroon—Friday, Scpfcipber 28,19QA—29W******* * ******* * * iSlSiV < * • W* *V» i * ■ i * fyWNM Hi i9(irn9iq^<i ygbi '4 noowM ogtsjirO:IMBARK LIQUORS & WINE SHOPPE1214 East 53rd Street • In Kimbark Plaza • 493-3355We accept Visa Mastercharge and ChecksSALE ENDS OCT. 2, 1984Hours: Mon.-Tiiurs., 8am-lam; Fri. &Sat., 8am-2om, Sunday, Noon-MidnightWe reserve the right to limit quantities andcorrect printing errors.Here's to You, Students & FacultyWELCOME BACK!BEERSBECK’S or oldMOLSON JTYcL24-12 oz.

Because of that system,several students and employers weredisappointed when Work/Study fund¬ing ran out.Work/Study provides federally sub¬sidized jobs for the most needy stu¬dents. The College Aid Office (for Col¬lege students) and the Office of StudentLoan Counseling (for graduate stu¬dents) determine need using formulaswhich combine scholarships, parentalcontribution, student earnings, andloans. College students may earn up to$1500 per year; graduate students earnmore.In the Work/Study program, the fed¬eral government subsidizes half thestudent’s wages. This serves as an in¬centive for employers who then have topay only half the normal hourlywages.This year, about 1600 students havereceived letters saying they are eligi¬ble for the program. There are approx¬imately 1000 Work/Study jobs avail¬able.Loevy reassures students who haveheard stories of Work/Study moneyrunning out by telling them that as longas they find jobs, they will receivefunding. While funds have been cut be¬cause of a federal formula determininghow much money a school should re¬ceive, Loevy said this year’s 50-50 splitshould ensure adequate funds for allpositions.The keys to landing Work/Study jobsare to start early and be persistent.Christine Freidell, Work/Study coor¬dinator, says there are a wide varietyof Work/Study jobs and studentsshould assert themselves: follow upwith a phone call after the interviewand present your skills effectively.These can sway the interviewer’s im¬pression in your favor.Students fill Work/Study positionsranging from gym attendants, libraryaides or mail room assistants, to dataentry clerks, researchers or editorialassistants. Hourly wages range ac¬cordingly from about $4.50 to $6.50.If you are eligible for Work/Studyand have received a letter in the mailto that effect, go to the North Lounge ofthe Reynolds Club Monday throughFriday, Sept. 24-28 and Monday andTuesday Oct. 1 and 2, or to ReynoldsClub 200 thereafter. Pick up an authori¬zation form and receive advice on theWork/Study program.You can then review job binders topick out specific Work/Study jobs toseek. The on-and-off-campus jobs list¬ed in the binders are the only onesavailable to Work/Study participants.Once you successfully land aWork/Study job, you must then returnthe top white sheet of the Authorizationform completed by you and your super¬visor to CAPS. At that point, you will beassured Work/Study funds for your po¬sition.If you need more time to find a job,return to the CAPS office before thedates stamped on your Authorizationform for an extension. If you find a jobduring that extra time, you will still getWork/Study funds.However, Loevy cautions that thereare only a limited number ofWork/Study jobs. Once those jobs aretaken, Work/Study money will be fullyallocated. CAPS will track which jobsare taken by pulling them from the fileas employers call to say their positionsare filled.You should read the agreement onyour Authorization form and makesure you understand the restrictions.For example, by signing the form, youagree not to hold another job oncampus during the time you work yourWork/Study job.Be aware that when you come within« $200 of the maximum amount of money; you can earn through Work/Study, you’ will receive a letter warning you thatyour job will be terminated when youreach your maximum earnings. Feder-, al regulations require the University toi monitor student earnings under fe¬derally subsidized programs.While being on Work/Study, particu¬larly with an on-campus job, bars you(from taking another on-campus job•once your first is terminated, you canstill try to get a job off-campus ordowntown.Also, if you think you are eligible forincreased financial aid, see the CollegeAid office, or the office of Student LoanCounseling. CAPS has no say in how-much you receive in Work/Studyfunds.Although you will have to stand inlines, interview, and fill out forms,Work/Study is not as limiting as itsounds. For example, if you want towork only one quarter, there are jobsavailable for that. Just make sure youobtain the Authorization form and se¬cure the job now.CAPS internship boardPlaces to hunt for non Work/Study jobsCAPS is not the only resource forjobs.

McDonald hopes to expandfurther throughout the Hyde Park andLoop areas eventually.The main advantage of working forCAPS Temporary Services rather thanlocal Kelly or Olsten Services is thatyou don’t have to pay for the placementservice and CAPS takes no cut of yourwages.Last year 150 students listed theirservices through CAPS TemporaryServices. McDonald hopes to see thatnumber increase to 200 this • year.About 5 employers call in each weeklooking for hplp and that number is iikely to increase with the increased ad¬vertising. _ ,■ The'^ca^o Maroon-iFHda^.’^iitefnber 28, 1984-31ed.University of Chicago Hospitals andClinics.

It iswhere most textbooks are sold < exceptthose at the Chicago Theological Co-opSeminary) and the most convenientplace to shop for paper supplies andbooks for pleasure. It is also, however,the most expensive. Buying all thebooks for a course now can cost up to$100 per course, particularly for Com¬mon Core. Therefore, the Maroon sug¬gests other bookstores where youmight shop to save money on yourcourse books, or browse when you havea spare hour.One money saving alternative is nota bookstore at all but rather StudentGovernment’s Book Exchange. Thisservice, run quarterly, allows studentsto bring in used books (mostly text¬books) to sell at the price they namefor a small fee (20C per book sold). Itthen gives students the chance to buythose used textbooks at great savings.Books not sold are then returned totheir owners.This fall the Book Exchange will berun in Cobb Coffeeshop in the base¬ment of Cobb. Books will be acceptedstarting Friday, September 28 from 9a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9a.m. to 1 p.m. Books will be acceptedthrough the following week as well.Students who want to buy books shouldwait until Monday so that a stock ofbooks can be built up. Books will besold through the middle of the week be¬ginning Oct. 8.* * *Powell’s Bookstore (1502 East 57thStreet) is a used bookstore with an ex¬tensive selection. All available space islined with well stocked bookshelves.The store’s self-proclaimed strengthsare philosophy and history as well asthe more traditional fiction and liter¬ary criticism. There is a substantialcollection of books in foreign languagesin the back room as well.Powell's manager, Brad Jonas, saysthat while Powell’s does not sell text¬books per se, the U of C’s definition oftextbooks is often different from that ofother schools. Jonas explains thatPowell’s has a wide selection of usedliterature and social science booksoften read in U of C courses. Back¬ground materials such as commen¬taries or secondary sources are also ofinterest to students writing papers re¬quiring in depth analysis of an authoror a subject.Subject matter and quality of the edi¬tion are two primary criteria Powell’suses for accepting used books. Powell’spays 20 percent of the current list pricefor books it agrees to buy.Powell’s is open 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.seven days a week.* * *Joseph O’Gara’s Bookstore (1311East 57th Street): this secondhandbookstore has a humanities-basedstock. Books reach to the ceiling withladders stretching equally as high toreach those top-shelf elusive books.Strong areas are art and literature.Histories have fallen off in the past fewyears but theology is growing in popu¬larity; currently stretching across fourbookshelves. O’Gara’s has a wide se¬lection of romances and paperbacknovels as well.New this year is a small art galleryin the back which will exhibit antiqueprints and maps.O’Gara’s accepts high quality secondhand books but shies away from trendybooks on topics like computers. Sellersreceive 20 percent of the current listprice of a book although that variesslightly. There is then a 50 percentmarkup on the books.O’Gara’s is open 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.Monday through Saturdays, 12 noon to10 p.m. on Sundays.* * *57th Street Books (1301 East 57thStreet); this bookstore, an offspring ofthe Co-op, opened last spring. It is in¬tended as an upscale bookstore or“more of a trade store for a highly lit¬erate community,’’ said manager Rod¬ney Powell.This store features children’s booksin contrast to the more academic Semi¬nary Co-op Bookstore. A children’sstory hour will begin again this fall onOctober 6th. 57th Street Books also hasmore of a literature section as wrell as amystery and science fiction sectionthat has done very well since this storeopened last spring. Later in the fall,57th Street Books will alec carry an ex¬tensive collection of Cci idars.The traditional 10 percent CTS dis¬count with stock ownership also ap¬plies here with a good way to savemoney on books or pleasure. However,these stock certificates can only bebought on the original Co-op.57th Street Books also has a bargainbooks corner with a variety of books inkeeping with their regular stock. Thesediscounted books are often overstocksbut are all new.Bookstore hours are Monday throughThursday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Fridayand Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. andSunday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.57th Street Books has regular booksigning receptions where an authorwill be present to autograph his bookand chat with the public. The next onewill be Studs Terkel next Friday auto¬graphing his book The Good War.* * *Seminary Cooperative Bookstore(5757 South University, in the base¬ment) This tiny store is a gold mine ofbooks with each small room revealinga new subject. Stock includes a com¬plete Penguin library and probably themost extensive collection of books bythe University of Chicago Press in thecountry.At the beginning of the quarter thisbookstore can become unbearablyovercrowded but remember that thereare night hours as well. Save yourbrowsing for later in the quarter.Many of the Social Science and someof the Humanities professors orderbooks for their classes through the Co¬op. These are piled and boxed in theroom to the far left as you enter. Staffcan help direct you through the maze tothe correct area for your class.If you expect to take many SocialScience or Humanities courses andplan to buy new books, it would be wellworth your time and money to buystock in the Seminary CooperativeBookstore for $10 a share. This shareentitles you to 10 percent off each pur¬chase and a cut of any profits madethroughout the year. If you buy two ormore shares you also receive the con¬venience of being able to charge andhave a bill sent to you monthly. If youdecide you no longer want to be amember, you can always return yourshare for a full refund.Also, note that the Seminary Co-ophas many of the same coursebooks soldin the U of C bookstore in its regularstock. Prudent comparison shoppingcan save you a few dollars on eachbook. The Co-op will be open 8:30 a.m.to 9 p.m. for the first week of school.The bookstore will then return to regu¬lar hours of 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondaythrough Friday, 10 to 5 on Saturdaysand 12 noon to 5 on Sundays.* # *You will most likely save half theprice of a new book by buying it used. Ifyou are really concerned about keep¬ing your expenses down, you will notonly want to check out the bookstoresbut also read the signs up aroundcampus. Many students will sell theirtextbooks themselves and dependingon how marked up and beaten thebooks are, they may be a very goodbuy.* * *However, if you don’t want to runaround looking for your books, head toThe University of Chicago Bookstore(5750 South Ellis Avenue).The Bookstore will be open 8:30 to4:30 Monday through Saturday. Onlythe first floor is open on Saturdays.32—The Chicago Maroon—Friday, September 28, 1984OCT1. 7( bawl Festival DayryMARK^gn^ TWAINDeclaring HIMSELF for■‘ThePRESIDENCY,!ROCKEFELLER CHAPEL12:30pjn.-South LawnfWievandedafeb> dnnmincementlREYNOLDS CUB8:00p.m-Loungedfiewmididute» 4(ee& l/te dtv.ij<a?free!Sponsored by the University Campus Ministers& Rockefeller Memorial ChapelHyde Park BankBringsMONEY NETWORKto theReynolds ClubApply for your card today.That's right . . . the bank thatbrought Money Network™ toHyde Park now brings the sameautomatic banking convenience tothe Reynolds Club.

Persig’s Zenand the Art of Motorcycle Mainte¬nance, the “true University” is auton¬omous from the Administration of theUniversity. Persig’s contention is thatthe true University is the life of themind, the pursuit of knowledge, andtruth manifested in the faculty and stu¬dents, and not the buildings in whichclasses are held, nor even the curricu¬lum which the administration estab¬lishes.The University of Chicago's adminis¬trators, however, are very concernedabout preserving, revitalizing, andsupporting the “true University.” Theessence of U of C is guided by thesepeople. They not only run the businessof the University — hiring faculty, de¬termining grading policy, etc. — theydo so with the true University as theirconceptual goal. These administratorprofiles should help to answer the ques¬tion, “why spend $13,000 a year to havethe privilege of attending the Universi¬ty of Chicago?”* * *Hanna GrayHanna Gray, President of the Uni¬versity — besides running the Univer¬sity, Gray acts as the liaison to theBoard of Trustees and is the spokesper¬son for the University to the public.Gray, through the central administra¬tion and with the advice of a gamut ofadvisory committees, manages theUniversity—hiring deans, allocatingresources, and making sure all pro¬cesses are appropriately conducted.Gray also has the last say in the articu¬lation of priorities, with the resultingpolicies affecting all aspects of the Uni¬versity.Probably the most formidable of hertasks is the philosophical challenge ofkeeping the University, in the diversityof its many parts, a community inwhich a common thread is pervasive.This task ensures the continued vitalityof the life of the mind at the Universi¬ty.Gray enjoys numerous opportunitiesto socialize with students. Her involve¬ment in social activities at the Univer¬sity extends from large occasions suchas the Freshman Picnic in the autumnand the Senior Reception in the springto sherry hours, coffee hours, and resi¬dence house parties to which she is in¬vited.Gray is by no means unavailable toconcerned students. She meets regu¬larly with a student advisory commit-jtee and will see students who make ap¬pointments to see her.Charles O’ConnellCharles O’Connell, Vice-Presidentand Dean of Students in the Universi- ‘ty— O’Connell is responsible for nearlyall aspects of out-of-class life. Anumber of offices report to him, includ¬ing the Director of Student Housing,the Director of Student Activities, andthe Registrar. In addition, all physicaleducation and athletic programs re¬port to him. O’Connell is also respons¬ible for the Career and Placement Ser¬vices office, the Office of OfficialPublications, the Office of UniversityStudent Loan Counseling, the Interna¬tional Student Services office, theAlumni Affairs Office, and the alumnimagazine.* * *Edward Turkington. Associate Deanof Students in the University — Tur¬kington is responsible for all aspects ofthe student residence halls. He over¬sees the business, food, housekeeping,and maintenance services of the resi¬dence hall system.The directors of the Student HousingOffice, the Food Service Office of theResidence Halls and Commons, andthe Business and Physical PlantOperations Offices of the ResidenceHalls and Commons all report directlyto Turkington.Graduate student loan counseling isalso within his domain.* * *Herman SinaikoHerman Sinaiko, Dean of Students inthe College — Sinaiko’s office overseesall undergraduate academic advising,the Orientation program for enteringfreshmen, and matters of academicstandards — determining who makesthe Dean’s list or academic probation.Sinaiko’s office also deals with behav¬ior of College students, honoring excel¬lence in some, and taking disciplinaryaction against others. The office alsoemploys a psychiatric social worker tohelp students with problems. Sinaiko’soffice also acts as liaison to UniversityHealth Services.The Dean of Students in the Collegeis also concerned with quality of lifeissues, and strives to make studentsmore “at home.” A new program beingtried this fall acquaints freshmen withthe University and helps them copewith the rigors of College life. The pro¬gram focuses on exam-panic, studyskills, and harrowing first-year experi¬ences. If successful, the program maybecome part of Orientation Week.Dan Hall, Dean of College Admis¬sions and Aid — Hall coordinates theprocesses which admit students andenable them to attend. The Office ofAdmissions holds the premise thatthere are students in the country whobelong at Chicago; students whoshould be come part of the communityhere. The aim is then to represent theU of C to them honestly, through publi¬cations, student guides for campusvisits, and personal interviews. Stu¬dents in the College can participate inthis process through the StudentSchools Committee.The Office of Aid handles student ap¬peals on aid. Appeals go through com¬mittees which decide how to respond,and refer the appeal through a networkof other steps. The Aid Office is alsoconcerned with student employmentand work-study.Constance Holomon, Director of Stu¬dent Housing — Holoman and her twoassistant directors are responsible forhousing all unmarried University stu¬dents. Living arrangements includethe College houses, apartments, andresidence hall systems. Various stu¬dent concerns are addressed by this of¬fice, including altering room and boardcontracts, room changes, housechanges, and other procedural ar¬rangements. One must remember,nowever, that petitioning does notguarantee results.Constance HolomanThe Office of Student Housing alsodeals with severe disciplinary prob¬lems, while dealing with minor infrac¬tions is delegated to supervising housestaffs, resident heads and assistants,and hall councils.Although student activities do notfall within the realm of the Housing Of¬fice’s responsibilities, it does allocatemoney for house activities.Irene Conley, Director of Student Ac¬tivities — Conley’s office, in Ida NoyesHall, has the greatest effects on oppor¬tunities for out-of-class College Life.The purpose of the Office of StudentActivities is to support the wide rangeof student interests, from Chess Clubvto yoga clases in Eclectic Ed. In addi¬tion, dances, concerts, theatre, andother activities are the main fare year-round.Johnathan KleinbardJonathan Kleinbard, Vice-Presidentfor University News and CommunityAffairs — Kleinbard’s office oversees awide range of campus concerns rang¬ing from publishing the Chicago Chron¬icle, the University’s in-house organ, toimproving communication between theUniversity and its surrounding com¬munity.Kleinbard’s office serves as the Uni¬versity’s link to the media, and publi¬cizes research breakthroughs, Univer¬sity events, and other stories ofinterest to the public. Kleinbard hasencouraged stories on University stu¬dent life, and recently stories on it haveappeared in Time, the New YorkTimes, and the Chicago Tribune.Kleinbard’s office’s community af¬fairs concerns include trying to por¬tray the University as “a good neigh¬bor” to surrounding communities.Kleinbard thus works with such localorganizations as the school board, so¬cial agencies, and other municipalagencies.University Police report to Klein¬bard, and he is responsible for all realestate owned and managed by the Uni¬versity, including off-campus studenthousing.Some of the practical gains Klein¬bard strives for include better educa¬tion in local public schools and a bettercommercial ambience in Hyde Park.* * *Photos t>y Arthur U. EllisDonald LevineDonald Levine, Dean of the College— The Dean’s office coordinates allaspects of College life, acting through abroad and diverse system of associatedeans, Collegiate Division Masters, ac¬ademic advisers, and several standingcommittes.The Dean’s office’s committees areadministrative and legislative, andtheir concerns include areas such ascurriculum, reviewing course tutors,and the Review Board of UnergraduateDisciplinary Committee. Levine moni¬tors the actons of these committees,and they all report directly to him. He,in turn, reports to the Provost and thePresident.Levine's primary concerns as Deanof the College are to revitalize the cur¬riculum. keeping the education of un¬dergraduates an intense, strenuous,and exciting experience; to upgradethe facilities, improving science labs,foreign language labs.'and the physicalaids to education; and to improve pub¬lic relations in the College.Levine is also seeking closer com¬munication with Student Government,student advisory committees, and suc¬cess in improving the quality of life forCollege students.* * *Richard TaubRichard Taub. Associate Dean of theCollege — Taub’s direct responsibili¬ties include acting as Dean of the Col¬lege for Summer Quarter, arrangingappointments for lecturers and gradu¬ate course assistants, and developingcomputational facilities for studentuse.Taub, in coperation with Irene Con¬ley, director of Student Activities, andTurkington, also convenes two com¬mittees designed to improve studentlife. The “Quality of Life” committeehas recently instituted the “MaroonExpress,” the weekend bus to down¬town Chicago and the Near North Side,winter’s Kuviasungnerk, and springfestivals. This fall, Taub is part of ateam including Student Governmentand the Student Activities office whichis organizing Indian Summer Nights(Autumnerk).The “Hassles” committee is devotedto removing administrative hasslesfrom students’ lives. This committee iscomprised of several representativesof the University’s administrative of¬fices. including the bursar’s office andthe registrar’s office. The “Hassles”committee tries to provide a networkwhich is easily navigable. “If a studenthas to go from office to office to get an¬swers, then we’ve failed in our objec¬tive,” Taub says.The Chicago Maroon—Friday, September 28, 1984 —35Canada’s Bear of Beersis here!Down from the North Woods of Canada comesGrizziy Beer.

Some you can learn byasking other students, such as whatprofessors to take, what grocery storesto shop, and what to do downtown.Some of the more basic things you maynot know or understand include: whatto do if you lose your i.d., where to callfor phone numbers, or what processyou will go through if you are arrestedor what to do if you need Security or thePolice. Our suggestions are by nomeans exhaustive, although they arehopefully accurate.SECURITYWhat to do if you have anythingstolen:If you live in a dorm, call UniversitySecurity (123 or 962-8181). They willcome to your dorm and fill out a report.They will also help you report the theftto the city police, should you wish.If you live in an apartment in HydePark-Kenwood (i.e., between 47th and61st Sts., Cottage Grove Ave. and LakeShore Drive), cad either Security orChicago Police (911).

It’s only money,and doing this may save you from bodi¬ly injury.Preventive measures: buy a whistleand participate in the Whistlestop pro¬gram — when someone sees a crime,he or she blows a whistle, and whenothers hear a whistle, they join byblowing their whistles to bring atten¬tion to the crime.If you are walking at night and wantto feel more secure, call UniversitySecurity (962-8181 or 123) for UmbrellaService.

The station is currentyraising funds to buy equipment neces¬sary for the transition. The stationshould complete the transition processby spring quarter.Spoken word programs on WHPK in¬clude “South Side Forum,” a poetryand fiction reading show, foreign lan¬guage programs, and lectures.“South Side Forum” features paneldiscussions with state and local politi¬cal figures. Past guests have includedRoland Burris, Illinois State Comp¬troller, Philip Rock, president of the Il¬linois State Senate, and local aldermenDorothy Tillman (3rd), Timothy Evans(4th), and Lawrence Bloom (5th). Pan¬elists for “South Side Forum” includeCraig Rosenbaum, WHPK’s news andsports director, Cliff Grammich, edi¬tor-in-chief of the Chicago Maroon, andChinta Strausberg of the Chicago DailyDefender.The poetry and fiction reading showis a new addition to WHPK’s pro¬gramming.

Thestation hopes to add programs in Chin¬ese and German. The programs are de¬signed both by foreign language stu¬dents and faculty.

Thestyle of each program is dictated bythe individual tastes of each disc jock¬ey. All shows, however, are bound bytheir alternative nature. On a rockshow, one might hear anything fromGerman electronic experimentalism toAmerican hardcore punk to Britishfunk, but top forty is never played.Students interested in working withWHPK, ’either as a d.j., engineer, or inany other job, should stop by the sta¬tion (preferrably during the after¬noons), or by stopping by the WHPKbooth which will be set up in Ida NoyesHall on Student Activities Night.962-9555Famous last wordsFROM FRIENDS TO FRIENDS.“Are you OK to drive?”“What’s a few beers?”“/ thirdc you've had a few too many”“You kiddin, I can drivewith my eyes closed.”DRINKING AND DRIVINGCAN KILL A FRIENDSHIPU.

Whilestill trying to overcome an image prob¬lem, SG is emerging with renewed pur¬pose as both a service organizationwhich helps U of C students through thework of committees and as a represen¬tative body which airs student con¬cerns through the assembly. It’s nottoo late to join, as freshman represen¬tative and other spaces will be filledsoon.Students elected to SG in the springalso make up many committees whichdo the legwork on issues discussed inbi-weekly assembly meetings. Thesemeetings, which are open to the public,happen every other Thursday in Stuart105 at 7 p.m.The first meetings this year promiseto be particularly' vto dispense throughout the year.The organizations submit budget re¬quests, and the committee then deter¬mines which organizations will befunded and how much each will get,using the Finance Committee Bylaws.The committee’s decisions are submit¬ted in the form of recommendations tothe Assembly, which must then ap¬prove them. ,SGFC will be holding a FinanceWorkshop on Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. in theEast Lounge of Ida Noyes. This is opento anyone who wants to learn moreabout how groups receive financing.Rick Szesny chairs the Finance Com¬mittee.Activities CommitteeThe Activities Committee planscampus-wide parties and dances.

New SG plans include new projects forStudents in the College, Herman Sinai-ko. will discuss +/— grading at theOct. 4 meeting. This was discussed lastfall but students did not protest untilthe College Council voted to enact + /—grading starting this fall. Sinaiko willanswer questions and discuss the mat¬ter with Assembly members and anyother interested students.Strong student protest on this issuemay prompt reconsideration of thenew policy.A vacant Government Finance Com¬mittee seat will be filled at the firstmeeting as well.At the next meeting on Oct. 10, VicePresident and Dean of Students in theUniversity Charles O'Connell will dis¬cuss his proposal that the Student Ac¬tivities Fee be increased from $5 to S10to give student clubs and the Major Ac¬tivities Board (MAB) more money.That proposal will still have to be ap¬proved.An important element of O’Connell’sproposal restructures distribution ofthe Student Activities Fee. SGFC andthe MAB currently split the feet 60-40.However, under the new plan. 25% ofthe fee would automatically return tothe division that generated it.Freshmen interested in serving onthe Assembly as Freshman Rep willhave a chance in an election that willbe held the third week of classes.Other seats open include: two seatson the Student Faculty AdministrationCourt (SFA), a representative seat inthe school of Social Service Adminis¬tration (SSA), five Business Schoolseats and one seat in the DivinitySchool.

As a result, ExLibris will review whether prices canbe cut this year to return some of therevenue to the students.Ex Libris is chaired by John Pon-terotto.Student Services CommitteeStudent Services, as the name dic¬tates, serves students. One activitywhich began last year is the Book Ex¬change where students can sell or buyused books and textbooks at the begin¬ning of each quarter.The service helps the students sellingbooks because they can set the price(for a 20c fee) on their books and reapall the benefits. Furthermore, studentswho buy the books can save significant¬ly over the price of buying the booksnew.The Book Exchange will be open forstudents to drop off books to sell on Fri¬day, September 28 from 10 a m. to 4p.m. and 11-2 Saturday. Buy or sellbooks through Friday the next weekfrom 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. #projectsStudent Services also organizesRoundtable, a panel discussion seriesheld throughout the year where U of Cfaculty and outside experts discussissues in a public forum.

September 28. 1984 —43CAMPUSMuseums provide a free time educational diversionThe most famous bit of advice evergiven to Chicagoans came from themouth of city planner Daniel Burnham,who counseled the city’s developers to“make no little plans.’’ The City of BigShoulders has done well in heeding thatadvice, but has also done itself well inheeding a lesser-known bit of advicefrom Burnham. The planner calledupon Chicago to build museums, li¬braries, galleries, and parks, lest Chi¬cago “become merely a place whereambitious young men will come tomake money and then go elsewhere toenjoy it.”Chicago offers a wide variety of mu¬seums to please all tastes and interests,from the massive collections housed inthe limestone castles on the lakefrontto the smaller ethnic exhibits displayedin neighborhoods inland. The Maroonhere presents a tiny sample of this vari¬ety. hoping you might find some occa¬sion to visit the city’s museums besidesthe obligatory trip to the SheddAquarium for a common core biologylab.The lakefront museums include Chi¬cago’s best-knowm and most-visitedmuseums. Of these, the best known andmost-visited is the Museum of Scienceand Industry.The Hyde Park institution at 57th St.and Lake Shore Dr. is the city’s mostpopular tourist attraction, perhaps be¬cause of its participatory approach todemonstrations of basic physics princi¬ples and some high-technology ad¬vancements. Some of the Museum’sother draws include a coal mine, andthe U-505, a World War II German sub¬marine which became the second bat¬tleship captured by the American Navyduring combat. Perhaps the Museum’sbiggest draw is its free admission.The bulk of Chicago’s lakefront mu¬seums are clustered in Grant Parkdowntown. One of these, of course, isthe common core biology student's des¬tination of Shedd Aquarium (Roosevelt* Rd. and Lake Shore Dr., admission $2,free Thursdays).The Aquarium has six galleries, eachdevoted to either tropical, temperate,or cold salt or fresh water species. A90,000 gallon Coral Reef is theAquarium’s centerpiece, highlightingCaribbean species.The Field Museum of Natural Histo¬ry (next door to the Aquarium, admis¬sion $2, free Fridays) features exhibitsin anthropology, botany, geology, andzoology. The Museum’s building is oneof the largest of marble, and one of itsmost spectacular rooms is the StanleyField Hall, with its fighting African bullelephants and the first free-standingGorgosaurus re-constructed skeletalstructure. Although having over 20acres of floor space, the Museum candisplay only one percent of its collec¬tions, while the rest is used for re¬search.Set apart from the neighboring lake-front museums is the Adler Planetari¬um, at the eastern end of the point be¬tween Monroe Harbor and BurnhamHarbor (1300 S. Lake Shore Dr., freeadmission). The Planetarium’s muse¬um collections feature antique astro¬nomical tools and photographs takenfrom space. The Planetarium also hasa Sky Theatre and the Doane Observa¬tory, which has a 16-inch telescope.Set inland from the lakefront muse¬ums is the Art Institute (Michigan Ave.at Adams St., admission by small dona¬tion at door). The Art Institute’s chiefdraw is its collection of French Impres¬sionist works, perhaps, one of the finestsuch collections in the world. The Insti¬tute also features photographic andmodern painting collections.Another well-known museum setaway from the lake is the Chicago His¬torical Society (Clark St. at North Ave.,admission $1, free Mondays). Some ofthe Society’s better-knowm exhibits de¬tail the life of Abraham Lincoln, Chica¬go’s Fire and World’s Fairs, and earlyIllinois frontier life. Copies of all Presi¬dential First Ladies; inaugural gownsare also one of the Society’s noted at¬tractions.Several smaller local museums alsoexhibit ethnic groups’ contributions tothe city and the nation. One such muse¬um in Hyde Park is the DuSable Muse¬um of African American History (56thPI. at Cottage Grove Ave., 50C admis¬sion). The Museum, the first black-his¬tory museum in the United States, is.named for Jean Baptiste Point DuS¬able, a black French explorer who be¬came Chicago’s first settler. The Muse¬um’s highlights include exhibitions ofAfrican and American art.Several other ethnically oriented mu¬seums are also scattered throughoutthe city, many in areas where the fea¬tured groups settled in Chicago. Somesuch museums include the BalzakasMuseum of Lithuanian Culture (4012 S.Archer Ave., admission $1) on thecity’s Southwest Side, the UkrainianNational Museum and the UkrainianInstitute of Modern Art (near WesternAve. and Chicago Ave., free admis¬sion) on the city’s West Side, the PolishMuseum of America (984 N. MilwaukeeAve., free admission) on the city’sNorthwest Side, and the Swedish Muse¬um of America (near Clark St. and Fos¬ter Ave., free admission) on the city’sNorth Side._ Photo bv Robin TotmanThe Field Museum is well worth a Saturday trip.

Johnson ofthe Other Theatre Group sug¬gested I direct a play for thefall quarter, I had an inner con¬flict about the idea. Literally. Itall began when I took organicchemistry over the summer. Iwould ask questions of myselfand answer back, like, "Whyare you doing this to yourself,Ron Edwards?” (I addressedmyself thus because that’s myname). "I don’t know, Ron,"would come the reply. Although0-chem is only a memory, soonto be repressed, I hope, thisinner dialogue continues. Don’tworry, I may be a little schizobut I’m not crazy. Yes you are. Iam not. I am going to direct theshow in the fall despite innerprotests and I’m writing this ar¬ticle to tell people about it. Sowhat’s this play you’re doing0It’s called Hotel Paradiso. Itwas written by Georges Fey¬deau sometime around the turnof the century. What is it? It's "afarce. A what? A farce. It’svery funny. (Defining farce hasalways been a problem for crit¬ics and academicians. They usephrases like "stylized comedy,sort of” and "light satire andcaricature, sort of” and are fi¬nally reduced to shutting theirmouths and pointing to theworks of Moliere and Feydeau"Go see that play. It’s farce.It’s very funny.” Audienceshave less trouble defininggenre, but they’re busy laugh¬ing and don't worry about it.)What's the play about? Rough¬ly, it’s about two people whoare married, but not to eachother, attempting to have anaffair in a seedy little Parishotel. When her husband, thefamily’s best friend, the neph¬ew, and the maid are involved,total chaos ensues. There'sother stuff in it too.Great! When can I auditionfor your show? You don’t haveto, idiot. You’re directing it. Oh.Right. Auditions for Hotel Para¬diso will be held OctoJber secondand third, Tuesday andWednesday of first week. Theshow will go up during fifthweek. Everybody is welcome,7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Oc¬tober second and third, in thefirst floor theater of the Reyn¬olds Club.Both of us hope to see youthere —Ron Edwards28 2930A Life Written by Hugh Leonard, direct¬ed by Tom Mull.

Her beautifully poised vocalizing,combined with her spirited acting and vul¬nerable stage presence, made for a utter¬ly captivating performance.Onegin was sung by Wolfgang Brendel,a young German baritone whose most re¬markable feature was the apparent easewith which he sailed through grueling,high-lying vocal lines of the opera's titlecharacter; this ease did wonders for hischaracterization — an Onegin can hardlyseem world-weary and blase if he is strug¬gling just to get through the notes. Brendelhad no problem there. The handsome fig¬ure he cut on stage was also an obviousasset.Czech tenor Peter Dvorsky was thedoomed poet Lensky, whose passionatenature brings him to grief in the face of On¬egin’s worldly indifference, and uponwhom Tchaikovsky lavished his mostheart-rendingly lyrical music. His dark-toned tenor was used with great style andelegance, nowhere more so than in his gor¬geous pianissimo introduction to the greatensemble in the first scene of the secondact. His singing of his second scene aria,probably the most famous vocal selectionof the opera, in which he foresees his immi¬nent death, was devastating. Strong menwept. The familiar talents of Bulgarianbasso Nicolai Ghiaurov were displayed tofine advantage in the relatively small roleof Prince Gremin, with his show-stoppingthird act aria. The smaller roles were allwell taken, and special mention must bemade of the sensitive and strongly-sungperformance of contralto Gweneth Bean asthe nurse Filippyevna. The choral singingwas generally fine, but there were somesloppy entrances.Eugene Onegin, running through October15, opens what promises to be an uncom¬monly interesting Lyric Opera season. Incoming weeks we will have not one but tworarely performed Richard Strauss operas:the romantic comedy Arabella with Kiri TeKanawa and Ingwar Wixel, and the goofyand sublime Woman With a Shadow, fea¬turing the very exciting Eva Marton; theMetropolitan Opera's charming prod¬uction of the Mozart comedy The Abduc¬tion from the Seraglio, with the greatbuffo antics and plush vocalizing of Ger¬man bass Kurt Moll; Verdi’s fire and brim¬stone melodrama Ernani, with a principalquartet of Luciano Pavarotti, GraceBumbry, Piero Cappuccilli, and NicolaiGhiaurov, starry casting indeed, even con¬sidering the basic vocal unsuitably ofBumbry to the part of Elvira — still, it’sgonna be fun; and two warhorses, TheBarber of Seville and Carmen, the formerdistinguished by the presence of top Ros¬sini stylists Francisco Araiza and SestoBruscantini, the latter by the presence ofJean-Pierre Ponnelle. the brilliant Frenchdirector/designer, who is responsible formany of the Lyric’s most memorable prod¬uctions. and conductor Michel Piasson, theman / like to see in the pit on French operanights. Add to this the CSO's concert per¬formances of Mussorgsky's Boris Godun¬ov, conducted by Claudio Abbado. and fea¬turing Ruggero Raimondi and SamuelRamey, and we re looking forward to ahot autumn of opera for Chicago. But de¬spite the spectacles to come, I should notbe surprised if I end up looking back withgreatest affection to these performancesof Eugene Onegin; it's a splendid night atthe opera, and a production of which theLyric has every reason to be proud.by Mike KotzeLove, sacrifice, violent death, and greatdance numbers — Eugene Onegin has it all.Even so, the Tchaikovsky opera seems anodd choice as the opening night presenta¬tion of this year’s Lyric Opera season.Let’s face it: the opening night gala audi¬ence is probably the most ill-informed andundiscriminating group to pass throughthe doors of the Civic Opera House all sea¬son. This over-dressed and under-man¬nered bunch generally prefers more spec¬tacular and exotic fare — and if possible,the presence of some mega-star like Pa¬varotti. Tchaikovsky’s introspective mas¬terpiece was probably not to the taste ofthe glitter set that showed up Fridaynight.There. Spleen vented. It’s just that thetuxedoed ones made an awful lot of noiseall through the loveliest performance I’veever heard of one of my very favoriteoperas. If I sounded insufferably snotty inthat first paragraph, forgive me. It wasthe heat of the moment; put the blame onromantic opera, boys.All right: Eugene Onegin. The story isfrom Pushkin, but the emotional pitch ispure Tchaikovsky; the novelist's veneer ofdetachment and irony is stripped away,leaving a core of pure emotion, refresh¬ingly life-sized and unexaggerated bygrand opera standards. In his letters,Tchaikovsky writes of the depth of feelinghe had for the characters of this opera; lis¬tening to the music he wrote for them, oneis convinced that this commitment wasdeep and genuine.The opera tells the story of the worldlyand aristocratic young man Eugene One¬gin, who spurns the simple and honest pro¬testations of love of the country squire’sdaughter Tatyana, only to discover toolate that her love was what he needed tofill the terrible emptiness of his life. Tchai¬kovsky did not conceive Onegin as a tradi¬tional operatic narrative; he preferred toview it as a series of dramatized scenesextracted from the Pushkin novel. He wentso far as not to title Eugene Onegin “anopera," but rather, “lyrical scenes in threeacts." Even so, these scenes add up to avery potent dramatic whole, with thestory emerging quite clearly, indeed in aless disjointed fashion than such favoritesas La Traviata and Maron Lescaut.Director and designer Pier Luigi Samari-tani took his cue from the original subtitleof the opera and gave us stage picturesframed in a giant oval, the action appear¬ing to take place in vast cameos. Thesewere "lyrical scenes:" from the chastelushness of the garden scenes to the glow¬ing yet strangely cold dawning light of theduel scene, to the ballroom scenes, (thefirst in a modest and unpretentious roomin a provincial estate, the second in a glit¬tering palace in St. Petersburg), the pain¬terly evocations of Samaritani were poeticbut dramatically apt, affording a practicalplaying area for the action. Likewise, Sa-maritani’s stage direction was unclutteredand direct; common sense reigned, savefor a few moments of miscalculated styl¬ization, out of place amid the generallynaturalistic milieu. The lighting of DuaneSchuler matched for the most part thesubtlely of the settings, only to be marredhere and there by some crude spotlight¬ing.Lyrical musical director Bruno Bartoletticonducted. His reading of the score yieldedmany beauties, but on the whole I found ita bit on the mellow side for my taste: Iprefer crisper attacks and a little morebite in Onegin. Still, here was some ravish¬ing string playing, as well as sensitive ac¬companiment for the singers.It was the singing that made this perfor¬mance outstanding. After years of hearingthis music sung with such little finesse,usually by Russian singers, it was a realpleasure to hear it sung as cleanly and ele¬gantly as it was by the cast Lyric has as¬sembled for this production. Mirella Freni,in her first Russian role, was Tatyana. I’mafraid that a second hearing is necessarybefore I can adequately judge her perfor¬mance; having heard it only once, all I canoffer is a litany of superlatives. No singeris perfect, but as far as I was concerned, onFOR A SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCECOME TO GREY CITY BRUNCHALL PEOPLE INTERESTED IN ART. THEATRE. FILM.PHOTOGRAPHY , POLITICS, MUSIC. CONVERSATIONCOFFEE.

With¬out understanding, we - t ,reat eachother well. It is, perhaps, the urgency offinding a solution that led poet Soma San¬chez (who visited campus in 1984) to notethat “As far as Blacks are concerned,America is killing us."OBS is often a forum for big conversa-parties on campus, OBS sponsors an annu¬al fundraising raffle. The money is used tohelp fund organizational activities likethe OBS Graduating Students' Dinner andthe annual Black History and LiberationMonth Celebration in February. OBS isalso concerned about minority student re-cm/ment.

It is also4 support group composed of women ofdiverse backgrounds: graduate studentsundergrads, feminists, socialists, radicalsand Republicans, liberals and lesbians fromall departments and divisions. In fact, ourmembers and the experience they bring areour greatest resource; without them no in¬formation would .enter or leave our meetings.We meet every week for discussions onvarious issues of interest to women, sponsorcampus forums on women's topics and pur¬sue reforms within the University and outsideit. \ . •The Women’s Union as we know it wasfounded in 1976, although there was a pre¬existing radical women’s organization begunin the late 60 s. In 1979, the Women’s Unionworked to improve the Student Health ser¬vices for women which at that time did notprovide birth-control counseling, did not selldiaphragms, charged for pregnancy tests, aswell as for each Pap test after the first one,and was located in the Lying-in Hospital.Now, with the new Womancare services,women's health care is much improved andthe facilities much more accessible, andthrough them birth-control counseling isreadily available to both men and women.Also at that time, the Women's Union wascriticizing the University's handling of crimestatistics, and petitioned for inclusion of self-defense in the Physical Education programThey were successful; this year's scheduleoffers a self-defense course. The Women'sUnion advocated integration of books by andabout women into the curriculum, andtowards this end. in 1981 the Women’s Unionstarted a student-faculty committee whichwas funded the next year as the Forum onFeminist Scholarship, which arranges forguest speakers in Women's Studies to cometo the University. In 1982-3 the Women’sUnion continued discussions andconsciousness-raising, and organized apicket of pornographic films being shown bya dormitory on campus. This past year, theWomen’s union has organized and leddiscussions in the dorms on the subject of“Date" or acquaintance rape, sponsored cof¬feehouses featuring Chicago-area womenmusicians, and researched and wrote up theUniversity’s policy and services for victims ofrape to be included in the student handbook.This year we have a number of projects inmind for the Women's Union, including morecoffeehouses and social events, continuingand expanding the date-rape discussions,organizing an on-campus showing of the filmNot a Love Story — a documentary on thepornography industry — followed by ageneral discussion, getting the women’sself-defense group Chimera to do ademonstration class on campus, and pursu¬ing our weekly discussions at the meetings.This list of past and future ac¬complishments of the Women's Union isdeceptive, for although we are a very activeorganization on campus, most of our worktakes effect on a much smaller scale. We are.above all, a support group for women at theUniversity, a place where women can feelcomfortable. We meet to explore what itmeans to be a woman in this society withoutfear of being patronized or |udged by eachother. The Women's Union is an overwhelm¬ingly positive experience: it is where we meetto affirm ourselves as women.Please drop by our table on Student Ac¬tivities Night at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday.September 30th in Ida Noyes Hall: we alsoplan to give tours of our office and library thatnight.

Harper Ct.667-4008THE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 28. 1984—7TWO PERSPECTIVES ON GAY LIFEby Irwin Keller and Ed YoungYou're here. You're gay. End of story?Says Irwin. You’re here. You're gay. Theyear is just beginning. Counters Ed. Okaythen. How about, you're here. You're gay.Here 's what you can do about it.Let’s leave it. There are things that peo¬ple need to know. This is a new place for alot of gay and lesbian people: isolated,staid, conservative... terrifying? Yes, butit is also exciting, provocative, concerned,in many ways progressive.The University of Chicago Gay and Les¬bian Alliance was the first gay liberationorganization in the city of Chicago. Soonafter its inception in the Divinity School, itgrew to offer a variety of social and edu¬cational options to the entire University.Today GALA is one of the most active gayand lesbian student organizations in thestate. Under its auspices, the Universityhas seen a variety of gay-related films,speakers, poetry readings. The gay or les¬bian student has been supported by com¬ing out groups, entertained by dances,potluoks, and expeditions to the NorthSide, and been engaged by weekly discus¬sions of issues related to gay life and cul¬ture. Last year some members of GALAbrought the play One to campus as a ben¬efit for AIDS research. Other members ofGALA have formed groups to focus on par¬ticular issues and interests, most notice¬ably the Gay Business Student Associationin the B-School. In addition, GALA lobbiedsuccessfully last year for the inclusion ofthe phrase “sexual orientation’’ in theanti-discrimination disclaimer of the Col¬lege handbook. If you’d like to find outmore about what GALA is about, lock atthe GALA bulletin board on the 3rd floorof Ida Noyes Hall, call 962-9734, or stopby the GALA table at Student ActivitiesNight. GALA’S first weekly discussion/cof¬feehouse will be this Tues., Oct. 2, 9:00p.m., at 5540 S. Woodlawn.Okay. You're here. You’re gay. You'revery very busy.Yes quite.Now listen, it doesn’t end there. Lifedoes exist outside of Hyde Park, and manymembers of our community would claimonly outside of Hyde Park. Though notNew York or San Franciso, Chicago is a funplace. Discos, bars, clubs to fit every de¬scription. Chicago’s most popular gaydisco, Paradise, is free on Monday nights,and is a favorite among UC students, gayand straight alike. Complete listings ofbars and entertainment are available inGay Chicago Magazine. Chicago Gaylife,available for free in the foyer of the UCBookstore and at the Cheese Chalet on53rd Street, also has listings in addition togay-related news articles and features.The Chicago Gay and Lesbian Film Festi¬val happens every spring, preceding thenotoriously festive Gay and Lesbian PrideWeek.Escaping Hyde Park, though, needn’tnecessarily imply abandoning the life ofthe mind. The Lesbian and Gay AcademicUnion sponsors monthly events of interest,and its affiliates, New Town Writers, TheChicago Gay and Lesbian History Project,and the Gerber-Hart Library provideforums for gay/lesbian scholarship and ex¬pression. The Illinois Lesbian and Gay Stu¬dent Caucus, also an affiliate of LGAU, ne¬tworks lesbian and gay studentorganizations across the state.Besides the Gerber-Hart Library, book¬stores such as Unabridged Books andWomen and Children First are great plaoesto browse through g/l-related books andmagazines.Okay. You're here. You’re queer...Uh, try again.Keeping on with services to the gay andlesbian community, let’s start with health.Particular care can be found at the How¬ard Brown Memorial Clinic (which is alsoone of the most important AIDS researchfacilities in the nation) and the Emma Gold¬man Women’s Health Center. The Universi¬ty Health Service is also experienced inand sensitive to gay health issues.Chicago Gay Horizons is an umbrella or¬ganization for various kinds of social ser¬vices. There is a Youth Group (if you areunder 21), various support groups, and atelephone switchboard open nightly from7-11, providing information about the Chi¬cago gay scene, as well as ahone counsel¬ing — (929-HELP). Gay Horizons hosts anannual conference on gay/lezbian identity.Workshops touch on such diverse topics asintimate relationships, religion, parent¬ing, and the gay deaf community. Thisyear’s conference is at Northwestern Uni¬versity on Saturday, October 13. Regis¬tration forms are available from GALA orby calling the Horizons Switchboard.Kinheart Women’s Center, located inEvanston, is a somewhat similar sup¬port/social center, focusing primarily onwomen’s needs.Despite the gay and lesbian community’shighly developed nature, the City of Chi¬cago has been a step behind in affirmingits rights. ACTION (A Committee to ImpelOrdinances Now) is an ad-hoc group fight¬ing to have the phrase “sexual orienta¬tion’’ included in the list of criteria uponwhich the City cannot discriminate in theareas of housing, employment, and publicservices. Students who get involved in thisstruggle can have an impact.Okay. This isn’t all. There’s no way thatwe could possibly fit into one article infor¬mation about all the resources for gaysand lesbians in Chicago. But it’s a start.And as much as we can tell you, there’smuch more for you to discover. Ah, got it.You're here. You’re gay. Welcome.by Wayne ScottDon’t let anyone fool you: sex is a hottopic on this campus, contrary to the popu¬lar and somewhat self-protective image ofthe U of Cer as the asexual geek. In my ex¬perience, most of us do grapple with oursexuality at some point in our college ca¬reers. Abor'ior, gay rights, the doublestandard, and bisexuality: we contem¬plate them not only as political and moralcontroversies, but often as pressing per¬sonal dilemmas. The atmosphere on,~ampus encourages an open-minded inqui-V into these issues. And I have discoveredthat they are often discussed with a sur¬prising frankness.One week into my freshman year, I metmy first lesbian. After she told me aboutherself, she asked, “Are you gay?’’ I wastaken aback by her candor. It got worse.She soon introduced me to, yes, a real,live, gay man, who asked me the samequestion. At this point, with seemingly noother alternatives, I called my motherWhat I hoped to suggest by this is that itsometimes helps to know where you stand.If you know you’re homosexual, hedgingon the question or becoming defensive willonly spur further speculation. The very actof being asked, in a kind and curious way,suggests an attitude of acceptance thatmay not have existed in your hometownTake advantage of it. If you aren’t surewhere you stand, you can answer, like Idid, that you aren’t sure. People here aretolerant of uncertainty (and bisexuality)and less compelled to categorize theirpeers. Indeed, you are encouraged to ex¬periment and question the traditions thatnurtured us.The University community is the prover¬bial Ivory Tower. The reactionaries (andwe have a few) may grumble, but that’sall they generally do. In Hyde Park, les¬bians and gay men petitioning for gayrights reported reactions no harsher thancurious, perhaps frightened, stares. Ingeneral, our legislators are supportive ofgay rights. The University Administrationincludes “sexual orientation" in its anti-discrimination policy for admissions andparticipation in student activities. Youwill undoubtedly notice men dancing to¬gether at college dances — and it’s not be¬cause of the ill-famed lack of female com¬panionship.Personally, I’ve held hands with my boy¬friend on the quads and attracted only pe¬ripheral glances. When I lived in Shore-land, I knew the names of at least one, andoften more, gay and lesbian students oneach of its twelve floors. Once I developedthe intuition common to all gay men, les¬bians, and people from New York City, Inoticed a healthy number of gay friendsand supporters here. Coming from Balti¬more. Maryland, where I had known noopenly gay men and lesbians, where writ¬ers use first name only on their bylines inthe gay newspaper, it was a real comfortto me that I was not alone, that there wereothers who shared my values and con¬cerns.But I can’t do justice to this communitywithout at least touching on the contro¬versy that hit our campus last spring. Onthe eve of Lesbian and Gay AwarenessFortnight, which happened to coincide withProspie weekend, several students rippeddown a banner proclaiming eventsplanned by GALA for the University com¬munity. It had been up for less than twelvehours. Allegedly, the vandals felt that thebanner was an assault to the tender moralsystems of prospective students. What fol¬lowed was a barrage of letters to the edi¬tor of the Maroon, both enraged at andsupportive of the act. This inspired a con¬sideration of some of the larger issuesraised by this intolerant behavior.The prejudice and fear evinced in someof the letters from last spring came fromyounger students — freshmen and sopho¬mores. I don’t mean to make an unfair gen¬eralization by that, but I do mean to sug¬gest the possibility of inexperience andnaivete. These writers did not seem toquestion the existence of gay men and les¬bians as much as they doubted the pre¬sence of discrimination against them. Imust admit, I too wondered if harassmentand other acts of nastiness existedbeyond the seventh grade. The tearingdown of the banner — while an isolated in¬cident — hint? that it does. My experi¬ences in the greater city of Chicago thissummer prove that, while we live andthink in a relatively sheltered island, inthe larger world we are still a persecutedminority. As politically aware citizens, wecannot lose sight of this fact.Last summer I did some petitioning forgay rights in another section of Chicago.While I did receive many positive reac¬tions, I also ran into nasty comments andharassment. The word gay seemed to elicitan immediate reaction of hostility fromsome. On other occasions, people — orrather, seemingly straight men — threat¬ened my boyfriend and I from inside theirmoving cars. I may have had my armaround his shoulder. Sometimes, not eventhat. Why does the sight of two men to¬gether provoke such meanness? When menand women are stigmatized for public dis¬plays of affection, it is a disservice to usall, gay and straight.But then, you may already feel this.Maybe you’ve been afraid to tell anyoneyou’re gay because you anticipated suchhostility. Let me remind you: the nastinesswe glimpsed iri the letters of last spring —like name-calling from inside a moving car— suggests that fear clouds the thinking ofthe homophobic minority. And you neednot worry about people who are afraid ofyou. In general, you are surrounded by anenlightened, educated majority; they willrespect you for who you are, what youwrite, and how you think. And if you’reasked, “are you gay?” don’t panic, don’tcall Mom, it is no insult. It is a sign of wel¬come.8— FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1984—THE GREY CITY JOURNALEating, Drinking & Other Pleasantries....And we’re getting better!We successfully combine fresh, quality food withcasually elegant service & down-to-earth prices.Our full bar menu hosts exotic concoctions and daily drink specials.For Breakfast, we bake fresh croissants and muffins daily.

Who says art and neuroses are only forJews and homosexuals? A. JacquelineBisset in Rich and Famous, but it’s a lie asJohn Cassavetes proves in his most recentpsyche-opera Love Streams. DirectorCassavetes’ fiercely persona! style, with itshigh-tech emotionalism, Lee-Strasberg-Method-madness, and rampant improvisa¬tion, has never been accused of being con¬ventional or mainstream. Indeed critics havesaid that watching a Cassavetes film (as likelyas not starring his wife Gena Rowlands) isakin to watching a home movie. While I doubtthat his family is that strange, the analogy is agood one in that it cuts to the heart of what amovie like Love Streams is after. Cassavetesexposes his characters so thoroughly that itseems like an invasion of privacy. He doesn’tbalk at making his audience squirm; themovie is sometimes embarrassing andsometimes boring in the same way that homemovies are. What that analogy misses is theexcellence of Cassavetes’ craft which makesLove Streams a top-notch-almost-Swedish-neurotic-fest for anyone who can sit throughit.Cassavetes and Rowlands each playcharacters on the edge, or, if you prefer, overit. He’s Robert Harmon, writer, creep, andthe picture of sculptured alienation. Hekeeps a house full of women, any number ofwhom share his bed and are subject to h.sgrilling about, you guessed it, life and love.Robert is obnoxious and Cassavetes thedirector seems intent on showing him doingany number of unpleasant things.On meeting his eight year old son for thefirst time he proceeds to get him drunk andfly him to Las Vegas where he abandons himin a hotel room. After all, he tells him “menJohn Cassavetes and Gena Rowlandsdon’t like to sleep alone. Know what Imean?’’ Sure, John, sure, but we're indanger of not caring.Sarah Lawson (Gena Rowlands) has herown problems. Spurned by her husband anddaughter because of her oppressive, over¬abundant love (as opposed to Robert’s deficitin that area), her psychiatrist counsels her toget some balance in her life, “somethingcreative, some sex.” After an aborted at¬tempt to find a lover in Europe — humorouslysketched in by showing Rowlands trying tomove her mountain of luggage in a desertedtrain station — she ends up at Robert’s housein L.A. It turns out that Robert and Sarah arebrother and sister and their relationship andcontrasting views on, yes, love and life, areexamined.It might take a while to warm to Robert andSarah, and to the movie. The charactersseem too weird and it’s their verystrangeness that's dwelled on. Once you’rehooked though, if you’re hooked, the movieis absorbing. What could be considered ex¬cessive or obsessive is actually motivatedand justified by Cassavetes' eagerness to ex¬plore these very qualities in people’s livesand behavior.What keeps this potentially disastrousmovie afloat are Rowlands’ and Cassavetes’fine performances, and the always in¬teresting direction. As whacko Sarah,Rowlands is wired and intense, sometimespainfully so, but she can also be very funny.Indeed in her humorous scenes — in the trainstation, in a bowling alley, and with the oddassortment of animals she brings Robert —Rowlands displays an impressive comic flairwhich provides the movie with a welcomechange of pace. Cassavetes’ Robert,although a macho goon, is intelligent, andenigmatic; we pardon some of his long-sufferingitis and appreciate the final scenes,in which with Rowlands’ help, he gets beyondhis feeling that “life is a series of suicides,divorces, promises broken, children aban¬doned.”As a director, Cassavetes seems to be theAmerican Bergman; the movie is filled withclose-ups of faces talking, listening, andotherwise emoting. The effect can be con¬sidered either interesting, if notclaustrophobic (as I thought), or boring andoverlong (as some people in the theaterseemed to think). Like Bergman too, he isclearly interested in exploring the limits ofhuman relationships and human sanity. Ofcourse, Love Streams is far from perfect; theediting could have been tighter and many ofthe lines fall flat. What’s impressive thoughare the chances Cassavetes takes, and manyof the film’s flaws can equally be consideredits virtues. This is the kind of movie you’lleither hate or love, and more people will pro¬bably do the former than the latter. LoveStreams challenges and provokes; if you cantake it you’re apt to like it.10 FRIDAY, GCPTEMSER 28, 5384—THE GREy uiY JUUHNALWhat is it to have a god?What is God?

Most of these re¬views, however, were absurdly off base.They treated The River not as a distinctwork, but as a product to be judged bytheif' personal preconceptions of the manwho made it. They never let that record re¬shape their opinion of Springsteen (andThe River is very Importantly differentfrom all the records he has previously re¬leased) because they were too busy fittingtheir past conceptions of Springsteen onthe record. For them, there was no need toask what was going on in the songs: theythought they knew the answer just byknowing the familiar sound.The same thing is happening withBruce’s latest effort, Born in the U.S.A.Many reviewers find that compared to thebare scratchy sound of Springsteen’s last,one-man acoustic project, Nebraska, hisnew album sounds like a retrenchmentboth lyrically and musically. And I’m suremany people agree with them. Nebraskawas simple and direct; the instrumentationand melodies were borrowed from themost basic elements of folk music and rockand roll so there was no need to get usedto them, as they were part of every lis¬tener’s fundamental understanding ofAmerican music. Born in the U.S.A,, on theother hand, sounds like definitive Spring¬steen. Recorded in the upper registers asThe River was, the E Street Band's twokeyboard players make themselves felton almost every tune and Max Weinbergslams his drum kit harder than ever,heightening the old anthemlc effect.Whereas on Nebraska most of the melo¬dies were so plain they seemed secondhand, on Born in the U.S.A. all the songshave a hook line that grabs you and neverlets go, never even lets you breathe. To alot of people, ail this, combined with theless overtly potitcal lyrics, means just an¬other product of pomp and pride by TheBoss. But that's not the case, and not by alongshot.The fact of the matter is that what seemslike retrenchment is really necessary re¬finement. Born in the U.S.A. works in abroader context than Nebraska, a contextthat integrates the themes of Spring¬steen’s earlier albums with his acoustic re¬cord’s harsher realities, and that integra¬tion necessitates readjustment. The albumis certainly much more ’‘commercial” thanNebraska — possibly it’s the most mostcommercial record he’s every made — butSpringsteen wanted it that way; it's an im¬portant part of making the record moremainline, more central to the lives of hisaverage listener. And, contrary to aucourant belief, commercial isn’t necessari¬ly synonomous with sellout. That is an im¬portant and healthy idea born from thepunk revolution, but it's an idea that hasbecome overgeneralized and, at times,counter-productive: it can be tremendous¬ly ironic to see truly impassioned rock androllers rail against commercialism, puttingthemselves into the same camp as high¬brows and pristine tolkies, two of the big¬gest enemies of the rock and roil tradition.Unquestionably, most of the music on theairwaves is innocuous, emotionally vapid,often fatuous (to say the least), yet it’sstill possible to see someone in the mediumof la-la radioland pleasing djs and massesalike, still saving something worth saying— still touching on a hidden passion, just a3Presley and Berry did.‘ Dancing in the Dark”, the current singlefrom the album, is one of the only songs irithe top 10 to do that. The first twelve sec¬onds of the song are pure modern dancerock with a pulsating synthesizer and rigidsnare hitting only on the offbeat, but thenSpringsteen's voice comes in; high,strained, very, very open: contrary, infact, to all dance rock expectations of cool¬ness and distance. The words remind me ofnothing so much as the great opening linesto Rod Stewert’s tale of a wanderingyouth, “Every Picture Tells a Story.” BothBruce's and Rod’s heroes are checkingtheir look in the mirror, and both are dis¬appointed — like every normal kid any¬where — with what they see. But whileRod’s hero sets off to see the world,Bruce's is stuck on the night shift, and theonly hope he has is this girl he’s thinkingof; not that she can save him, but maybe —just maybe — they can help each otheralong.It’s a smalt story — in the same vein as"Born to Run,” though much less grandi¬ose — and that’s the way H’s meant to be.It doesn’t share "Born to Run’s” promiseof success, however temporary, but it doesshare the same passion for passion: themeaning of both songs is a search formeaning, for vital purpose.And this Is where Springsteen’s criticssave him. Bruce’s music is more direct thanmost rock in dealing with matters of pur¬pose and dignity; matters that are centralto the rock and roll ideal and that give vi¬tality to the music’s mythos of rebellion.On the other hand, this directness has aisoleft Springsteen more vulnerable thanmost musicians to attacks by those whoare embarrassed by such sentiments, andrightfully so. The problem is that none ofthe critics I’ve read have ever articulatedwhy this passionate search for vitality isso unsettling, particularly in a genre whichthrives on passion. Criticisms of messian-ism are too melodramatic and all-inclusiveto be meaningful, accusations of preten¬tiousness only seem cynical, instead, Ithink the real problem is that Spring¬steen's attempt to grasp the grandeur ofthe rock and roll mythos is self-defeating.Not because the mythos is too disparate,or because his talent falls short, but be¬cause the mythos is partly a lie — andSpringsteen yearns for nothing more thancomplete, Innocent honesty. The result isthat some of his music ends up becoming afantasy; a fairytale that for all its beautyand passion is an insult to its own inten¬tions. Robert Christgau's review of 1975'sBorn to Run tipped me off there, and l stillthink he said it best when he wrote, “Justhow much American myth can be crammedInto one song, or a dozen, about askingyour girl to come take a ride? A lot, butnot as much as romanticists of the doomedoutsider believe. Springsteen needs tolearn that operettic pomposity insults theRonnettes and that psuedotragic beauti¬ful-loser fatalism insults us all.”And that’s exactly right. Rock and rotiwould be nowhere without romanticism,but it’s got to balance it off with a coolness— call if distrustful restraint — or it’s gotto have the balls to throw both romanti¬cism,Ond restraint to the wind and not givea damn about the consequences, and thatmeins throwing away all promises too.The album Born to Run never really didany of that (though about half the time itgot away with it), but since Bruce releasedThe River he’s shifted his approach so thatthe promises have become tentative. Theyhaven’t disappeared, but he's more consis¬tently balanced them off with the realiza¬tion that most promises never come true.Today, the criticism of falling prey to"psuedotragic beautiful-loser fatalism”doesn’t hold true because Springsteen hasgone beyond being what Christgau calleda "self-conscious primitive” into becominga truly mature songwriter.. He has devel¬oped as keen an insight into the impor¬tance of the miniature aspects of a song'ssetting as into the mythic proportions ofthe ideas behind the music, and "Dancingin the Dark” is a fine example of this.Springsteen has always had an eye forcapturing detail beautifully, but until hislast three albums he never used it as a pri¬mary end. For example, the opening tinesto “Thunder Road,” in which he simply de¬scribes his girl dancing to the radio, arejust as exuberant and mugJY more insight¬ful than the closing lines in which he drivesoff with her into the sunset. With recentsongs like "Dancing in the Dark," hederives his lyrical power primarily from asimple accumulation of detail. The chorusmakes no grandiose promise, no call toarms, but it still reaches for a sense of pur¬pose with its simple line, “You can’t start afire without a spark/ This gun’s for hire,”and then it puts in the note of sadness andrealism that actually heightens the neces¬sity of trying — ‘ Even if we’re just dancingin the dark.”On every song, either the lyrics or themusic restrains the other, heightening thesong's power simply by contrast. Most ofthese songs are not meant to be majoranthemic works, but the ordinary detailsRECORDSv% SPRINGSTEEN X%V%DEL FUEGOSPSEUDO ECHOTHE SPECIAL AKAthat are set off by the music — simplepauses, smart backing vocals, offhand gui¬tar licks — plus the juxtapostion of similarthemes between songs serves to make thisrecord a truly remarkable collection of vi¬gnettes of American life. Springsteen suc¬ceeds here in making an album that is ascasual, as seemingly unselfconscious as thetreasury of fifties and sixties backstreetrock and roll that he draws his inspirationfrom.The exceptions are the opening number*‘8orn in the U.S.A.,” and the closing one,“My Hometown.” Together, they make upone of the six thematic/musical pairs thatcan be found in this album of twelve songs.These two songs are about the same thingseen in two different moods, and theyframe the record and set its emotionallimits. “Born in the U.S.A.” is as powerfula piece as Springsteen has evern written.It’s composed of one simple riff drivenhome again and again, driven until it cru¬mbles at the end of the track into a ca¬scade of drum rolls held together by aparalyzed, furious bass line, only to pickitself up again, pushing on until it’s forcedto fade, still figthing, into the next cut.Springsteen’s voice on this piece is anamalgamation of irony, bitterness, frus¬tration. sadness, even a strange pride andexuberation. ”My Hometown” is also com¬posed of a simple repetitive melody, butit’s a quiet song, a lot like the restrained,reverent country songs of the fifties andsixties. His -voice here never breaks: hesings it straight, but open — in a differntway it contains the same mixture of prideand sadness as the title piece.These two songs are about America inthe 1980's. where even the facade of aDream has been blotted out by a history ofracism, pointless wars and an irrevocablydeteriorating economy. "My Hometown,”specifically, is a beautiful song about heri¬tage. but ft’s the title piece, which is abouta man of Bruce's age and education tryingto survive in a country that offers him nohope, that is the more powerful and impor¬tant of the two.With this title piece, Bruce is returning tothe uncompromising passion that poweredBorn to Run and Darkness on the Edge ofTown, but he isn't returning to an unmiti¬gated stance of defiance. The song is notabout a beautiful loser, it’s about losingperiod. He refuses to let sentimentalityseep into the tight song structure: he saysonly what is necessary and moves on.When he speaks about Vietnam, the fury isalt stated by the music, the lyrics simplystate the facts. ”l had a brother at KheShan/ Fighting off the Viet Cong." hewails, “They’re still there/ He’s all gone,”and that's it. Where the next two or threewords should be Springsteen's voice re¬mains silent. What else need be said?What else can be said? The drums, key¬boards and guitars just keep smashingjheriff, over and over, uritii the snare beginsTlw Del Fuegotto sound like semi-automatic arms fire andthe bassline like the rumble of artillery.“Born in the U.S.A.,” like “My Home¬town.” deals with irreparable loss, butwithin that sense of loss there is still apride, stiti a defiance, however ironic orsad. At the end of the piece, when Spring¬steen screems out, “I'm a long gone Daddyin the U.S.Aj I’m a coot rockin’ Daddy inthe U.S.A.,” the irony is so strong only be¬cause the conviction is still there. Thoselines break me every time 1 hear them.They mean the same thing to me as thefines that end the celebratory “Open AltNight,” on Nebraska. where the boy ridinghome to meet Ws baby sings. “The radio'sjammed up with gospel stations/ Lost soulscalling long distance salvation.” and then,as his last line, he slips in the plea, “HeyMr. dj won’t you hear my last prayer/ Heyho rock ‘n’ roil deliver me from nowhere,"without changing his joyous tone one littlebit.There is no promise made in those lastlines because there’s more than just a hintthat he’s just another lost soul, only look¬ing for a different kind of salvation thanthe one the preacher has to offer. Spring¬steen is setting himself a contradictionhere of celebration in the face of damna¬tion, of pride within continual defeat, ft's acontradiction he skirted on Born to Run —and he managed that only by half fallingprey to a He — and ft’s this contradictionthat deep down helps make “Born in theU.S.A.” so continually astounding. Yes. it’sa song about loss, but it’s got nothing to dowith surrender. (And now check out songone on side two, “No Surrender.” I stillhave my doubts, but f suspect it’s a totmore than the tired cliche it first soundslike.)Springsteen said, in an interview afterThe River was released, that he had beenhaving troubles reconciling the wide rangeof emotions and ideas expressed on thatalbum. “I just said, i don’t understand ailthese things'. I don’t see how ail thesethings can work together.’ It was just be¬cause I was always focusing in on somesmall thing; when I stepped back, theymade a sense of their own. ft was just asituation of living with all those contradic¬tions. And that’s what happens There’snever any resolution.” fn recent years, hehas v let that realization. take more andmore ahold of the way he writes his music,the result being that where The River con¬tained contradictions between songs, thesongs on Born in the U.S.A. embody contra¬dictions. Springsteen’s music now ap¬proaches both socio-poHticai reality andthe rock and roil ideal with the same hon¬esty. and he succeeds with a new foundsubtlety and ease, as almost ail the songsbetween the titte track and “My Home¬town” attest.ft’s no mistake that this record is so com¬mercial in its appeal, nor that it deals withless grandiose topics than one is accus¬tomed to expect from Bruce, nor even thatit’s really the closest of any of his recordsto the joyous innocence of the music of thelate 50 s to mid 60 s because all this onlyserves to flesh out and deepen the newer,fresher sound that he has developed, andto put the utter seriousness of the socio-po¬litical consciousness that is a backdrop toralmost every song on this record into aneveryday, living framework.—Franklin SoultsThe Longest Day, The Del Fuegos (Slash)Even though vocalist Dan Zanes soundslike the guy from the Kings who sang "Swit¬ching to Glide," I love this album! The Delcontinued on page 14THE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. 1984—13RECORDScontinued from page 13Fuegos come from the heart of the Bostonclub scene which spawned the likes of the J.Geils Band and the Cars, and it’s nice to hearthat a lot of their raw energy comes across onThe Longest Day. This quartet is heavy on thedrums and guitars, with nary a keyboard orsynth machine to be found. Their lyrics arefunny and clever. In “Backseat Nothing,”Zanes spits out “You treat me like a backseatnothing/l’m tired of this/l’m gonna put youdown." With proper promotion and manage¬ment, the Del Fuegos have a strong chance ofgetting their considerable talents recogniz¬ed . — Jae-Ha KimNorth of a Miracle, Nick Heyward (Arista)The toothy former singer for;»Haircut 100has branched out into a solo artist, and he'strying desperately to rid himself of the happy-go-lucky image that went along with being inthat group. His songs are more about gloom( 'Blue Hat for a Blue Day,’’ “The Day It Rain¬ed Forever") than anything else. But hissmooth vocals provide a nice relaxing diver¬sion from the usual radio fare. “Whistle Downthe Wind” is hauntingly beautiful, and is aperfect opportunity for Heyward to show offhis mournful dirge-like chorus (that’s a com¬pliment, though it may read otherwise).“Take That Situation" is my favorite, though.The jazzy horn section adds a fun touch to thenewly matured Heyward. — Jae-Ha KimThe Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Red Hot ChiliPeppers (EMI America)The singer sounds like a rapping JoeStrummer, and the bassist called “Flea"plays a mean bass. Their lyrics are simpleand often repetitive, but if you listen to themwith an open mind, you can derive muchpleasure from the Peppers’ self-proclaimeddebut. Watch for “True Men Don't KillCoyofes” to make an impact on the collegeradio circuit. — Jae-Ha KimPseudo Echo, Pseudo Echo (EMI America)This Australian band has already won overU.S. audiences on their tours with thePsychedelic Furs and Siouxsie and the Ban¬shees. Formed only two years ago, PseudoEcho has been around long enough to knowthe formula for commercial success. Theyfused together their slick instruments withsinger Brian Canham's Spandau Ballet-likevocals. That this record sounds like that ofmany popular British crooners is not surpris¬ing considering that John Punter (who work¬ed with Bryan Ferry, Japan and Judy Tzuke)produced their Ip. The feel of this record ispolished and professional, but there i«nothing here that's new. The synth driven“Destination Unknown" (not the same tuneas the hit by Missing Persons) comes aboutas close to innovative as Pseudo Echo get. —Jae-Ha KimIn The Studio. The Special AKA (Chrysalis)Rude boys' lament:, ska is dying or al¬ready dead. With the break-up of the Spe¬cials, the degeneration of the English Beatinto the too-predictible and too-endearingGeneral Public, the creative stagnation ofsuch stalwarts as Bad Manners and theSkatalites, and the gentrification of Mad¬ness into an amiable, but dull pop combo,dance craze seems little more than an¬other episode in the pop music chroniclesof those whacky British — another trendlocated somewhere to the left of the NewRomantics and Oi. But, for those who per-servere and keep their lip up — who wouldrather skank than hip-hop, who preferTwo-Tone to ZTT, and who haunt midnightrevivals of Dance Craze — ska was morethan another blast to be made politically(neutralized) and assimilated into main¬stream pop, it was quite simply the mosturgent, most danceable, and most funsound around.The rudest of ska bands was the Spe¬cials, who ignited the ska revival of1979-80 with their sweaty blend of frac¬tured Calypso rhythms and lyrics of politi¬cal and sexual violence. The culmination ofthe Specials’ brief career was 1981’s EPGhost Town, a brilliant indictment of racerelations in Britain. Three years later, inl9-e!ectro-(but-not-Reagan)-84, thevaried remnants of the Specials continueto produce some of the most passionateand politically committed music on vinyltoday. When vocalists Terry Hall and Ne¬ville Staples and guitarist Lynval Goldingdeparted the Specials to form the short¬lived Fun Boy Three, the two resulting re¬cords were a disconcerting blend of des¬peration lyrics eerily juxtaposed againstcarnival-like arrangements — a musicalportrait of a society dancing merrily to itsown destruction. While the Fun Boy Threehas, since the release of Ghost Town, man¬aged to record two albums and disband,Jerry Dammers — the organist, occasionalsong-writer, and occasional producer ofthe Specials — has lavished the last threeyears in assembling a new band, the Spe¬cial AKA, and recording an album, In TheStudio. The Special AKA emerges as ashowcase for Dammers’ considerablesong-writing, arranging, and producingskills (only two former Specials play onthe record: John Bradbury on drums andDick Cuthell on Cornet and Flugel horn, nei-th • of whom joined the Specials untilu i second record). With the Speciala ,A, Dammers has i.sr ambled a bandwhich allows him to mo/e in a jazzy, in¬strumental direction only hinted at onsome of the less frantic Specials’ cuts — amove which is, judging by In The Studio,enjoyable and challenging for both Dam¬mers and the listener.The first single from In The Studio (and,more importantly the first MTV video) is“Free Nelson Mandella,” a joyous tributeto the imprisoned leader of the AfricanNational Congress. The high, distinctivevoice of Stan Campbell, who shares theSpecial AKA’s lead vocals with RhodaDakar, is complemented by an all-starchorus which includes Lynval Golding, ElvisCostello, Dave Wakeling and RankinRoger (both formerly of the English Beat),and the vocal trio Afrodisiak. With its in¬fectious’ syncopated best and soaringvocals, “Free Nelson Mandella" is a high¬light of In The Studio — a moving tributeto a man who has, for many, become asymbol of the repression of South Africa’sapartheid government. (University moneybrokers and trustees should bewarebringing the album on vacation as thesong has already been banned in SouthAfrica.) While the calypso beat and suc¬cession of horn and vocal soloes of “FreeNelson Mandella" holds echoes of the Spe¬cials, the remainder of In The Studio aban¬dons the dance frenzy orientation of hisformer band. Dammers’ — who wrote andproduced every track on the album — hastaken the Special AKA in a direction whichemphasizes his own interest in jazz andsoul, and which showcases the instrumen¬tal and vocal talents of the band he has as¬sembled. The majority of tracks are slowor mid-tempo numbers which rely upon acareful interplay of various instrumentallines. The arrangements of songs like “TheLonely Crowd" or "Bright Lights" — bothof which detail the hollow pleasures ofclubland — are characterized by their me¬ticulous 'ayering of instrumental andvocal parts. The result is a sound which,while initially uninspiring yields new plea¬sures with repeat listenings. Although oneoccasionally wishes the Special AKAwould lose some of its in-the-studio perfec¬tion in favor of a bit more spontanaeity,the album is a complex and finallyrewarding example of the integration ofjazz, reggae Brit-pop, and even a littleska into a complex and original record.Although instrumentals generally takeprecedence over lyrics on In The Studio,the lyrics also prove worthy of a secondlisten. While the Fun Boy Three opted forlyrics which tended toward the sardonic,the lyrics of the Special AKA are markedby their disarming directness. From theimperatives of “Racist Friend" — "If youhave a racist friend/Now is the time Now isthe time “For your friendship to end" — tothe indictment served in “War Crimes" —“From the graves of Belsen where the in¬nocent were burned/To the genocide ofBeirut, Israel was nothing learned" — TheSpecial AKA makes it point with a power¬ful brevity.While In The Studio isn’t the album whichthe still faithful hoped would resuscitatethe ska scene, it is an album which showsthat there is a future for the originaldance-craze, two-tone bands which re¬quires neither a rote repetition of pastrhythms nor a capitulation to the dead¬ening and deafening demands of most ofthe current pop scene. —Bruce KingJohn Bradbury of the Special AKATHE LUTHERAN CHURCHAT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGOWELCOMES YOUAugustana Lutheran Church • Lutheran Campus Ministry5500 South Woodlawn Avenue493-6452W.R.

Nonetheless, ithas a history of street-wise writing, anduntil the highly-publicized takeover of theSun-Times last year by Rupert Murdoch,was one of the few true two-newspapertowns remaining. Chicago is still home tosome of the best newspaper writers andcolumnists in the country, so for those notyet familiar with the local tabloids, hereare some highlights of Chicago's newspa¬pers.Chicago Tribune: Once a mouthpiece forthe turn-of-the-century reactionary indus¬trial Col. Robert McCormick, the Tribunehas moved to the left until it now person¬ifies the hard-core middle-of-the-road cor¬the othei half of the Siskel-Ebert team,writes for the Sun-Times; and Irv Kurp-nick, or ‘Krupp’, produces a political-in¬dustrial-entertainment celebrity gossipcolumn.Other than that, the only reason to bereading the Sun-Times is to read BloomCounty, and that will change this fall whenthe Maroon picks up that comic strip.General recommendation: It's better tobe seen with a copy of the Sun-Timesstuffed inside a copy of Kiddie Porn thanvice versa..The Reader: This free weekly is Chicago’sanswer to the Village Voice. A trendy, lib¬eral-left paper, the Reader focuses onlong feature stories and art criticism.Somewhat biased toward the north lake-front, tribal homeland of the young urbanprofessional, writing in the Reader rangesfrom silly to the best in the city.Each week’s front page story extendsten or more pages, and covers such di¬verse topics as bulimia and FBI stringoperations. Also, The Reader provides aporate editorial board. After the take¬over of the Sun-Times by Murdoch’scorporation, the Tribune is the onlyserious major daily left in Chicago.News and sports coverage is standard,if parochial: news of foreign wars is usual¬ly displaced by coverage of ‘Council Wars’between the Mayor and the City Council.Feature stories in the Tempo section rangefrom excellent (as was a series on cocainaddiction) to poor (major excerpts fromBob Woodward's Wired were reprintedlast spring) to interestingly weird (as wasa story about zombies in Haiti, written bya researcher claiming they really exist asheavily-sedated slaves).Mike Royko, who jumped to the Tribunelast year afrer Murdoch became his boss,writes the city column on page three everyday; if occasionally smug, it is one of thebest columns in the country, and alwaysworth reading. For those of you who missconversation over the suburban barbecue,Bob Greene puts out a daily dose of sappi¬ness whether he is writing about puppies,cancer, or losing virginity. In the oppositevein, Anne Keegan tells of cops fightinggangs terrorizing old ladies and of thegeneral decay and fall of Western civiliza¬tion. Gene Siskel’s movie reviews appearin the Tempo section each Friday, and BillGranger writes a sort of urban Fie'.d andStream column that is often unintentional¬ly amusing and occasionally interesting.Comics spread across two pages, and in¬clude the Far Side as well as Doonesbury,if and when it returns.General recommendation: if you can’tfind two quarters or you want comics withyour news, buy the Tribune.Chicago Sun-Times: Founded in responseto the right-wing Tribune, the Sun-Timeshas, under Murdoch, endorsed Reagan fora second term as President. Incoming stu¬dents won’t be treated to the spectacle ofa real newspaper torturously mutatinginto a duller version of the New York Post,though 50 members of the editorial staffleaving after Marshall Field V sold thenewspaper at bargain-basement pricesdid make the Murdochization of the Sun-Times inevitable.News and sports coverage is tabloid-standard: ninety-point headlines pro¬claiming sex scandles and Wingo winneis;first-name familiarity in headlines with‘Ron’ and ‘Fritz’; flippant four-paragraphstories on such straight-forward stories ascapital punishment.Most of the major writers fled afterMurdoch took over, and the political slantof the paper has caused the cancellation ofthe number of syndicated columnists. Wil¬liam Buckley can still be found; SidneyHarris’ nuggets of wisdom still appeardaily in the opinion pages; Robert Ebert,capsule listing and criticism of everymovie shown to the public in Chicago eachweek, as well as critical coverage of Chi¬cago's active theatre community. In itsback pages. The Reader continues the an¬cient tradition of serials, which are usuallyexcellent.General recommendation: grab themeach Thursday at the Bookstore or Reyn¬olds Club before they are snatched up.FILMby Brian MulliganNow that you are away at school, seeingfilms is no longer as easy as turning onyour parent's VCR. You’re gonna have towork for it. But the overall benefits of thefilm scene in Chicago will make seeking itout a pleasure. The most frequent com¬plaint about movies here is the lag behindNew York and Los Angeles in getting firstrun features. For all but the biggest re¬leases Chicagoans wait one to eight weeksafter films have opened on the coasts.Only rarely, if at all does a film nevercome to Chicago. In general, the situationtends to be getting much better. This isdue to a recent proliferation of smallertheatres who are able to take a few morechances with potentially unprofitablefilms.All the theatres which follow are easilyreached by public transportation (Almostall are within walking distance of a How¬ard El stop.) To find out what's playingwhere, check Grey City (for campus films),the Readers, the Tribune, or the Scum-Times, in that order. All these papers re¬gularly publish reviews of current films.The reviews which appear in Grey City areok for the most part. They are often inter¬esting just to see how a peer reacts to thefilm.The main reviewer for the Reader isDave Kehr (who also writes reviews forChicago magazine). Kehr is an ex-DOCmember who has made good (there aren’tmany of them who have — only kidding).He is an accurate and entertaining writerbut he has sadly become very predictablein his likes and dislikes. Read his reviewsbut don’t be swayed by his final opinion.As you almost certainly know. Gene andRog of “The Gene and Rog Show” are thereviewers for the Tribune and the Sun-Times, respectively. And as we all knowthey don't always agree, but it is easy tospeak of them in the same breath; theyboth seem to like all the right things for allthe wrong reasons. I am embarassed toadmit that I often like the same thingsthey do. They just seem so stupid. Howev¬er, I do think they deserve a lot of creditfor the increased vitality of the Chicagofilm scene. Two years ago the reviewer forGrey City was only able to name threetheatres which regularly showed foreignfilms. At present there are approximatelyseven to eight which book foreign fea¬tures.But before we start too seriously on filmhouses in the city, let us look at film inHyde Park. There are currently three filmgroups operating on campus. The largestof the three is DOC Films, the oldest stu¬dent run film society in the country (This isanother one of those facts you will neverstop hearing the entire time you live inHyde Park.) DOC shows films almost everynight of each quarter. Weekday nights arereserved for various series DOC organizeseach quarter. The series this quarter in¬clude the films of Vincente Minnelli andJean Renoir (“More Renoir than you wouldever want to see." as one DOC member putit). Weekend nights are usually recent hits— coming up this quarter is the likes of TheRight Stuff. Splash and The Empire StrikesBack. Sunday nights have recently becomethe domain of foreign hits. If you ask aDOC member if there is any one theorywhich DOC as a whole subscribes to. he orshe will proudly tell you. “Yes. we believein the autuer theory of film." All it meansis that one believes a director leaves animprint of his or her personality on thefilm. Usually this kind of thinking degen¬erates into an odd sort of cultism.The things DOC has in its favor are its lo¬cation (Cobb Hall on the mam quadrangle)and its financial resources allow it to ex¬periment with unprofitable, but very in¬teresting, series. Working against DOC isQuantrell Hall where it shows films, anugly primitive facility which can almostruin a film especially when crowded Thesituation is due to change in the future. Ifplans go through as expected DOC willhave a new theatre in the renovated IdaNoyes. Needless to say I would not holdmy breath waiting — but it may happen.DOC is actually quite a fun group to workfor, especially if you like to meet verystrange people.The second largest group on campus isLaw School Films. (LSF). This group showsthree to five films a week in the LawSchool auditorium across the Midway.Whereas DOC gets into personalities LSFgoes for the genres; screwball comedies,(Bringing Up Baby), suspense films (TheMaltese Falcon), etc. Basically all Hol¬lywood films from the thirties and forties.These movies are fun and that seems to beone of the two major points about LSF;they want you to have fun. The other mainpoint seems to be making a large profit.All the films LSF shows are reasonably toridiculously cheap to rent. Charging $2 or$2.50 a head and usually selling out (orcoming close), LSF would seem to be mak¬ing quite a healthy profit. Now, I supposethere’s nothing wrong with that, theAmerican Way of Life and all — it justseems that for a student-run group LSFshould direct some of that profit intoshowing some less commercial films. Theflip side to this argument is that LawSchool’s equipment almost never breaksdown — as opposed to DOC where it is al¬most to be expected. In general I am moreimpressed with DOC’s attempts to try dif¬ferent things even if there are technicalproblems.The underdog of the campus film groupsis the International House Film Society. I-House shows about twenty films aquarter, tending towards foreign classics(as well as the occasional Marx Brothersmovie). In the past 1-House has been fairlywell organized and reliable. This year forthe first time they will be attempting toContinuedTHE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28. 1984-19SK^HWRPSRVSQUAR5FOOD 8f SPIRITSOpen for Breakfast-Lunch-DinnerSoups — Salads — AppetizersMore than 15 Colossal Sandwiches17 Entrees—Beverages—Desserts7 a.m. to 10 p.m.EVERY DAY1501 E. 53rd St. 241-6592STUDENT SPECIAL10%OFF*Y0UR nextMEAL 8w/coupon and vaild U. of C.

If all goes well this quarter they areplanning a Black film series for winterquarter.At present there are no commercialtheatres in the neighborhood. The oldHyde Park theatre at 53rd and Harperstands empty as a testament to this sadfact. At least the powers that be have notseen fit to tear it down as they have seenfit to do to so many other things (Green¬wood Hall, the YMCA building on 53rd).The Film Center of the Art Institute (Colum¬bus Drive and Jackson Blvd — behind theArt Institute) has been a leading force inbringing non-commerical film to Chicago.The Film Center actively programs aneclectic and sometimes odd schedule offilms. Series topics run the gamut fromMexican Cinema to Dance in Films to Sexu¬ality in Cinema to anything else you canimagine. They have also been instrumen¬tal in bringing the works of lesser knowndirectors to Chicago, people such as Chan-tal Ackerman (of Belgium) and Jacques Ri-vette (of France). Nor does the Film Centerturn a blind eye to our own filmmakersboth past and present. Aside from DOC theFilm Center is the only place one can seevintage Sam Fuller or Douglas Sirk. TheCenter publishes a bi-monthly guide totheir features which can easily be found oncampus.The Fine Arts theatre (418 S. MichiganAve) is a recent addition to the film scenehere. It is a converted theatrical spacewhich has been transformed into fourtheatres of varying quality. One theatrehas uncomfortable seats while anotherone has bad sightlines. None of them areterrible and the management is easily for¬given. (Acutally one doesn’t have muchchoice — the Fine Arts tends to have exclu¬sive engagements.) The Fine Arts featuresfirst run “art” films which can either meanThis is Spinal Tap or Querelle by Fass¬binder. A very welcome addition to Chica¬go theatres.The other theatres in the Loop tend toshow kung fu and grizzly horror movies.They are probably safe to go into but itremains a question why one would wantto. However, I urge all of you to go downand see a movie at the Chicago Theatre (onState Street near Randolph). It doesn’tmatter what they are showing, just gosoon. Tragically, they are planning to tearthis theatre down — “urban renewal,”you know. The Chicago is a magnificentpalace — a reminder of the glory days ofthe American moviehouse. You will neversee anything like it ever again.Chicago Filmmakers at 6 W. Hubbardtends to focus on works by new and rela¬tively unknown independent filmmakers,thus making it the one film group in thecity to be on the cutting edge of new cin¬ema. They also sponsor series and lecturesby local and out-of-town directors. A smallbut important group in the city.As we move north we come to the morecommercial houses. Of them the finestwithout a doubt in the McClurg Court (onEast Ohio). It is spacious with a hugescreen — it is the best place in Chicago tosee a film in Cinemascope. The sad thing isthat they tend to book the most awfulstuff imaginable. A nothing movie likeWithout a Trace will play to empty housesfor weeks. Either that or they dig up some¬thing from the last few years — they arecurrently showing The Right Stuff.The Water Tower theatres are a joke com¬pared to the McClurg. There are nowseven of them, each as small and crampedas the next. The architect who designedthem and the company who built them un¬derstand nothing about going to the mov¬ies — they do, however, understand mak¬ing money. The logic here is that byshowing popular films in tiny theatres theshows will keep selling out. The disap¬pointed moviegoer who shows up late thendecides to go to see his or her second (orthird) choice. Clever but nasty. Try toavoid these theatres whenever possible.A similar situation exists at the ChestnutStation theatres (on Clark at Chestnut), anew theatre complex. The individualtheatres here are larger but not very com¬fortable. Chestnut shows an interestingblend of mainstream American movies.Good popcorn here.Just north of Water Tower are two verynice movie theatres, the Esquire (58 E.Oak) and the Carnegie (1020 N. Rush).These are large theatres which get the bigreleases (Spielberg/Lucas stuff). Boththeatres are comfortable and easy to getto.The Biograph theatre (on Lincoln at Ful¬lerton) has added two smaller theatres toits main one downstairs. All three are com¬fortable and attractive. The Biograph,which has been around forever (this iswhere John Dillinger was just before hewas shot in the alley next door), coversthe same turf as the Fine Arts — the “art”films. It is a joy to watch a movie here. Di¬rectly across from the Biograph is theThree Penny theatre, which shows bothforeign films as well as less commercialAmerican releases (like Tender Mercies).Facets Multimedia (1517 W. Fullerton) isanother strong force in the film scene here.The programming here is similar to theFilm Center — they show just about any¬thing. The space is divided up into a fewsmall theatres. Facets has begun recentlyto do first run engagements of indepen¬dent filmmakers (especially documentari¬es such as their present feature SeeingRed). They publish a film guide which canusually be found in some of the shops on57th Street.Further north there are three fine reviv¬al houses, the Parkway (Clark and Diversy),the Music Box (3733 N Southport) and theVarsity (1710 Sherman in Evanston). TheParkway and the Varsity are two sides ofthe same coin. They regularly show doublefeatures changing daily — if you wt.it longenough something to your liking will playthese theatres, no matter how bizarreyour taste is. The Parkway has also begunto show first run films for limited engage¬ments (two to four days). This is a verywelcome addition since these films (likeGoddard’s Passion) would otherwise beshown on only one night at the Film Centeror Facets. Parkway/Varsity publishes aposter calendar of all upcoming features,usually as an advertising supplement tothe Reader.The Music Box is based on the same phi¬losophy as the above two theatres — do¬uble features of older films. Music Boxtends to have a more eccentric selection offilms, shying away from the bigger namesand digging up lesser known (but just asgood) movies. I have never been there butI hear it is a beautiful theatre.The above list is far from complete —there are movie theatres all over Chicago;suburban multiplexes like Ford City, whichis the one closest to Hyde Park), newtheatres and sleazy ones like the Brighton(4335 S. Archer) which shows double fea¬tures of one recent release with an accom¬panying piece of trash for $1.75 (cheaperthan DOC). Chicago’s best film buy.CAMPUSTHEATERby Stephanie BaconOne might not guess, from the variety ofstudent theater options now present oncampus, that large-scale student interestin theater is fairly recent. A couple ofyears ago, the only dramatic opportunityfor students was in the form of a studioworkshop program offered through CourtTheater. Apparently the success of thisprogram was limited. The Blackfriars, oneof the oldest student groups on campus,has offered an opportunity for students toparticipate in musical theater; however,neither the scale nor the quality of theseproductions has been formidable in recenthistory. Since the Blackfriars have tradi¬tionally only produced two shows a year,they have not offered opportunities for in¬tense involvement.The first breakthrough in vital dramaticstudent theater was the formulation ofConcrete Gothic Theater, which took placein the autumn of 1982. Thp group, go¬verned by a four member board, facedserious obstacles in obtaining funding andthe use of facilities for their productions,as well as in achieving official status forthe group. Despite these obstacles, thegroup produced a first year that wasalways interesting and often artisticallysuccessful, f One strongpoint of the groupwas its firm foothold in the avant-garde,in terms of methodology and selection ofscripts. The group’s second production wasa double feature of one-act student-writ¬ten plays.In more recent history, Concrete Gothichas not fared as well; the 1983-84 seasonoffered little that lived up to the originalpotential and vitality that the group hadshown; the experimental element is great-ContinuedThis fallCORNELL BAPTIST4CHURCHoffers you:-Christian education, Sundays, 9:40 a.m.Beginning Oct. 7:*01d Testament study: The Early Hebrew Monarchy*Christian citizenship in an election year*University class* Adult Bible study class*Children’s classes for all ages* Nursery provided-Worship, Sundays, 11 a.m.-Prayer service & choir practice, Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m.-Fellowship dinner, Oct 7, noon-Community service opportunities:*Food pantry, Wednesdays, 1 p.m.•Christian Peacemakers, Alternate Saturdays, 10 a.m.-Women-at-home support group5001 S.

This may have been due tothe fact that the 1983-84 season saw thebirth of two other theater groups and aworkshop; therefore the group of interest¬ed students was more widely diffused.The Basic Theater Group, brainchild ofone director, Barry Endick, offered twoproductions last year. Although the com¬pany was energetic, they suffered fromsomewhat muddled direction and a seem¬ing lack of real artistic vision. The playschosen were suggestive of suburban din¬ner theater.The Other Theater Group was also thebrainchild of a single director, being J.Scott Johnson. A newcomer to the U. of C.,Johnson surprised the community with twoproductions that were ambitious and quitewell received. He seems to have recoveredthe torch of stylistic modernism that Con¬crete Gothic has dropped.Last year also spawned University The¬ater (UT), an administrative organ thatnow oversees student theater activities,funds allocation, etc. Unfortunately, thisorganization has been anything but help¬ful to existing theater groups. UT, whichwas conceived as a service to the studentgroups, is mismanaged and generallyquite difficut to deal with. If the adminis¬tration were truly concerned with the in¬terests of the student theater groups, UTwould be a rather different structure. (Infact, it is only recent student pressure thathas caused the University to consider thepossibility of a drama major.)UT itself has sponsored a couple ofsmall-scale productions. The most ambi¬tious project that was directly under theauspices of UT was a comedy improvisa¬tion workshop, which produced a ratheramateur revue last year.This past summer. Concrete Gothic The¬ater produced two shows, and Other The¬ater produced one. The shows were ofgood quality and very enjoyable to workon, but unfortunately, not well attendedbecause of the season.The options for students interested inthe performing arts are quite diverse. Allof the theater groups are open to any¬one’s participation, and all auditions arepublic. Anyone can propose to direct aproduction to any of the groups. It ishoped that this season will include thefirst productions directed by women stu¬dents.Generally, the groups (with the excep¬tion of the administrative-run UT) arequite cooperative and enjoy mutual inter¬change of people and resources. Thisquarter the Blackfriars will make theirmost ambitious move - in recent history,producing Brecht and Weill’s ThreepennyOpera, with the help of director J. ScottJohnson from the Other Theater Group.Concrete Gothic and Other Theater Groupboth have shows planned for fall quarteras well. Information about auditions. etc.fcfor all upcoming productions is availableat the theater bulletin board in ReynoldsClub and at Student Activities Night.CHICAGOTHEATREby Brian MulliganDespite Chicago's massive second (or isit third now?) city complex — always com¬paring itself to New York or Los Angeles— it now has much cause for pride in its re¬cently thriving theatre scene. There is pre¬sently a wealth of good native theatre inChicago, compared to twenty years agowhen there was little more than an occa¬sional touring company of a Broadwayshow. Not only are there now a goodnumber of reliable repertory companies,but more seem to spring up each year.Some of these new groups succeed andtake root in a storefront or an abandonedwarehouse. Other groups are not so lucky(or talented) and sink back into oblivion.But all this activity is indicative of a veryhealthy vitality in Chicago. What followsis a guide to some of the most notabletheatres in the city.Court Theatre (5635 S. Ellis. 753-4472) isthe resident theatre at the University ofChicago and virtually the only (semi-; pro¬fessional theatre on the South Side. Nowabout 16 years old, the Court has maturedfrom an amateur summer repertory groupto an impressive repertory company pres¬enting 5 “Masterworks"a year in a beau¬tiful new theatre (One block behind Regen-stein — the center of our (the?) universe).Sounds great, huh? Well, there are a coup¬le of problems with the Court.The most serious is a radical imbalancebetween the technical aspects of theirproductions and the attention paid to cast¬ing, directing and acting. Court productio¬ns always look fantastic, sets, costumesand lighting are all, with occasionallapses, perfect. However, the casting isoften bizarre and both acting and direc¬tion tend to be bland and faceless.In its interpretations of these “Master-works” Court never strays from the ortho¬dox; everything is played straight with noleaps of imagination. This is a sad resultcompared to the optimism surroundingCourt when it was making its transitioninto the new theatre. At the time it washoped that Court would rank with the YaleRepetory Theatre as a center of theatrewithin the academy. Until Artistic DirectorNicholas Rudall and his group decide tostart taking chances there is no hope ofsuch prominence. Court is to be commend¬ed however on its recent attempts to in¬crease student participation in its prod¬uctions.This year Court begins with a full scaleproduction of Much Ado About Nothing,courtesy of i $25,000 grant from theJoyce foundation. Other upcoming prod¬uctions include The Misanthrope by Mo-liere, Pinter’s The Birthday Party andShaw’s A-ms and the Man (Rudall has astrong penchant for Shaw’s least interesti¬ng works/. In spite of the problems Courtputs on handsome, competent productionshere in Hyde Park. Court offers reason¬able student discounts, call for details.Those in search of free theatre can volun¬teer to usher and see the show for about30 minutes worth of very light work. Lookfor a sign-up sheet in Reynolds Clublobby,.There are three mainstream theatres inChicago all in or around the Loop; they arethe Schubert (22 W. Monroe, 977-1700),theBlackstone (60 E. Balpo Dr., 977-1700),and the Arie Crown (33rd and Lake ShoreDrive. 791-6000.) These theatres housethe national touring company productionsof Broadway hits. Every once in a while,we get the reverse situation — a show onthe road towards Broadway. The most re¬cent example of this was last spring’sproduction of Death of a Salesman withDustin Hoffman at the Blackstone.This fall will see Torch Song Trilogy byHarvey Fierstein (last year's Tony awardwinning play) at the Blackstone. The Schu¬bert, not to be outdone, will present NeilSimon's revamping of The Odd Couple forfemale leads (Sally Struthers and RitaMoreno). This will definitely not be thehighlight of the season. At press timenothing is scheduled for Arie Crown butthat will change. Compared to the Schu¬bert and the Blackstone which are bothbeautiful theaters, the Arie Crown is a de¬scent into hell. It is a huge barn of a placewith the worst acoustics I have everheard. Sadly enough, worthwhile showslike Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Toddwill get stuck at Arie Crown.These three theaters have one strongcommon factor, very high ticket prices.The only way to avoid paying 20-35 dol¬lars for a seat is to keep your eyes openfor discount tickets through the StudentActivities Office (SAO). In the past SAOhas arranged for discount tickets for manyof the worthwhile shows as well as forpopular dance groups coming through Chi¬cago.The Goodman Theatre, also located in theLoop (200 S. Columbus Drive, 443-3800),was recently cited in the New York Timesas the most exciting theater in the UnitedStates. Such an impressive descriptioncomes mostly from the success of prod¬uctions which have travelled from theGoodman to New York. Last year, theGoodman was responsible for the originalproduction of Glengarry Glen Ross whichearned author David Mamet a PulitzerPrize. Also originating at the Goodmanwas Hurlyburly, a play by David RabeThe show was directed by Mike Nichols(one of those oh-so-famous UC alums) andstarred virtually everyone (William Hurt,Signourey Weaver, Kevin Kline, etc). BothHurlyburly and Glengarry Glen Ross arecurrently enjoying successful runs onBroadway.Both shows came out of the GoodmanStudio, a separate entity from the Good¬man Mainstage. The Studio is an incred¬ibly small theater nestled behind theContinuedTHE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1984—23JAVtHUOLYliJ 1 dHO dm — ^oti .0* H JtiNid I Hdo , tAutN-*—:2nd HAND TUNESCHICAGO’S GREATUSED RECORD STORESROCKREGGAER &BJAZZSHOWCLASSICALEVERYTHING ELSEHelena Szepe, BooksOld, rare and scholarly booksin all fieldsMany new arrivals!Free search service1525 E. 53rd St.(Hyde Park Bank Building)Suite 902Saturdays 11-5 & by appointment493-4470" 9629555University NightSeries%mmSPONSOREDBY THEJUNIORGOVERNINGBOARD19 8428 5 SEA<I 1Vii —i i iimNSeries ARomantic TwosomeWednesday, October 17Claudio Abbado, ConductorCecile Licad, PianoSchumann: Piano ConcertoSchubert: Symphony Mo. 9, QreatA Fifth of ShostakovichTuesday, February 12Leonard Slatkin, ConductorLucy Shelton, SopranoHandel/Beecham: Entrance of the Queenof Sheba from SolomonSchwantner: MagabundaShostakovich: Symphony Mo. 5BUY YOUR TICKETSIN PERSON...• At Ida Noyes Hall:Sunday, September 30Beginning at 7 PM• At Orchestra Hall:Sunday, October 7Noon to 2 PM...OR BY MAIL USINGCOUPON BELOWPowerful BrucknerTuesday, March 5Henry Mazer, ConductorMozart: Divertimento Mo. 2, D major, K. 136Bruckner: Symphony Mo. 7One of the world's greatmusical ensembles is righton your doorstep!

Artistic Director, Gregory Mosherhas announced a major restructuring ofthe Goodman which involves finding amuch larger space for the New TheatreGroup, a resident company of actors anddirectors which will supplant the Studio.Playwrights David Mamet and John Quareare both committed to creating scripts forthe group.The Mainstage will remain much thesame, doing more full scale productions ofbetter known works. The Goodman seriesbegins this month with a production ofCandide by Leonard Bernstein. This is theGoodman’s first attempt at a musical piecein recent memory. Other productionsplanned for the coming year include Cere¬monies in Dark Old Men by Lonne Elder III,a landmark in Black American Theatre,and Six Characters in Search of an Authorby Pirandello, as well as a production of AStreetcar Named Desire in conjunctionwith the Stratford Festival of Canada.The Goodman has in the past offered alimited number of student rush tickets theday of the performance. Another way tosee Goodman productions at a substantialdiscount is to attend the play while it isstill in previews. The Goodman offers veryreasonable preview prices.The North Side lakefront offers a wealthof smaller ensemble groups. The bestknown of these groups is the SteppenwolfTheatre Company (2851 N. Halsted,472-4141). At eight years old the Step¬penwolf is the most exciting and continual¬ly impressive theatre in Chicago. Theyhave ben on a roll since their 1984 prod¬uction of Sam Shepard’s True West. (Thisproduction was transplanted to New Yorkin the Fall of 1982 where it ran until thissummer — the casting of Eric Estrada ofChip's fame finally did it in.) Another Step¬penwolf production, And a NightingaleSang by C.P. Taylor, enjoyed a successfulrun on Off-Broadway last year.Steppenwolf’s man of the hour is JohnMalkovich who created one of the leadrolls in True West. He is currently onBroadway supporting Dustin Hoffman inDeath of a Salesman. He is also the direc¬tor of Steppehnwolf’s New York revival oftheir production of Lanford Wilson;’s Balmin Gilead. Last week also saw Malkovich’smotion picture debut in Places in the Heartwith Sally Field. He will serve as directorof one production this coming year, CoyoteUgly by Lynn Siefert.All of these successes seemed to point tothe inevitability of Steppenwolf leavingChicago behind as a base of operations.Many feared Chicago was on the brink oflosing its best theatre group. These anxie¬ties were put to rest last June when manyof the founding members flew in from allover the country to reaffirm Steppen¬wolf’s committment to remaining a Chica¬go theatre.Recent successes for Steppenwolf athome have .been Sam Shepard’s latestplay Fool For Love, Tracers, a piece whichoriginated at Steppenwolf, dealing withthe experiences of soldiers in Vietnam andalso an excellent production of Caryl Chur¬chill's brilliant play, Cloud 9.This year begins with the American pre¬miere of Simon Gray's Stagestruck —dealing with a stage designers plan for re¬venge against his renegade wife. Otherproductions currently planned are Check-ov’s Three Sisters and Caryl Churchill’smuch-acclaimed Fen.The Remains Theatre (1034 W Barry,327-4848) is probably the finest experi¬mental theatre group working in Chicago.Only five years old, they have scored up anumber of very impressive productions.Two years ago they collaborated withSteve Rumbelow, an English avant-gardedirector of note, on an adaptation of MobyDick. They have also succeeded with ahyped-up production of Sam Shepard'sThe Tooth of Crime.Last year Remain's came up with a mod¬ernized version of Bertolt Brecht’s The\Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.For it, they abandoned the Kurt Weillmusic for a rock ‘n’ roll score. Members ofthe Remains group also co-produced theGoodman’s presentation of WilliamSarayon’s The Time of Your Life.The Remains group can currently be seenat the Goodman Studio in the regional pre¬miere of Christopher Durang’s new play,Baby With the Bathwater. Durang tendsto be a one joke playwright but if anyonecan play it well it would be Remains. In thedistant future Remains wll be collaborat¬ing with Jo Anne Akalaitis, who is asso¬ciated with the New York group, MabouMines. This partnership will certainlyyield interesting (at worst) results.Wisdom Bridge (1559 W. Howard,743-6442) is celebrating its 10th anniver¬sary this year. The productions currentlyplanned for the year are Terra Nova byTed Tally, Marsha Norman's Pulitzer Prizewinning play, ‘night Mother and Hamlet.Last year Wisdom Bridge had two criti¬cal and popular successes, both of whichwill have a short return run here beforegoing on national tours. The first is In theBelly of the Beast based on the book byJack Henry Abbott about his life as a convict. In the production Abbott was playedby William L. Perterson, one of the bestactors in Chicago. The second productionwas Kubuki Medea, a skillful blend ofGreek Tragedy and traditional Japanesetheatrics.Other well known theatre groups in¬clude the Organic (3319 N. Clark,327-5588) which is currently performing 3Card Monte — Or the Further Adventuresof Robin Hood. This comic mix-up of Robinand his merry band and Reaganomics hasproduced a great deal of favorable word-of-mouth. It stars Aaron Freeman who iswell known for last year’s Council Warsshow. In that Freeman created characterssuch as Harold Skytalker and Darth Vrdo-lyak to illuminate the battle for the CityCouncil (or the universe).Victory Gardens Theatre (2257 N. Lincoln,871-3000) have had a number of respect¬able productions putting a great deal ofeffort into doing new plays. Last year'sScheherazade by Marisha Chamberlainwas named National Winner of the1983/84 FDF/CBS New Plays ProgramVictory Gardens current production is aworld premiere of Nicholas Patricca’s TheFifth Sun, a drama concerning the assassi¬nation of El Salvador’s Archbishop OscarArnulfo Romero. Patricca uses masks aswell as ritual dance and music to tell hisstory.Though it really isn’t theatre, we cannotomit Second City (1616 N. Wells,337-3920) the legendary comedy troupe.Second City began 25 years ago (lest any¬one forget) here at the U of C by foundingmembers Mike Nichols and Elaine Mayamong others. The group currently stages3 or 4 revues a year in addition to the ac¬tivities of their touring company. All sortsof special events are planned to celebratetheir Silver anniversary. Keep your earsopen for details.So now you ask yourself how you willstay aware of all this wonderul theatre inChicago. It’s not very hard. Grey City at¬tempts to list all the worthwhile prod¬uctions which are going on weekly. Wealso try to review as many of these prod¬uctions as possible. Our ability to do thatis limited by the amount of people inter¬ested in writing on theatre. If you thinkyou would like to write on theatre pleasecome in and talk to the editor. If you wanta more exhaustive list of theatre in Chica¬go check either the Reader or ChicagoMagazine. Of the two, the Reader, being aweekly is more accurate regarding open¬ings, closings, extensions etc.Chicago is legitimately one of the mostvital centers of American theatre. No mat¬ter how busy they keep you here at UC,you would be foolish not to take advan¬tage of this amazing resource of good(reasonably) cheap theatre.RECORDSby Max RennWax Trax (214 (2449 N. Lincoln) This heav¬enly record store is the best in the mid¬west for its selection of imports, singles(new and old, 60's relics, rockabilly, 7”and 12” singles, “personalities,” and rari¬ties. A record store for those who missNew York City, the only complaints withWax Trax are price (usually a few dollarsmore than other stores) and tacky decor,it’s even rumored that a former GCJ icon-now in a high administrative position-oncepurchased not only a Partridge Family col¬lection, but a recording of Calypso Is LikeSo by Robert Mitchum at Wax Trax.Rose Records (214 S. Wabash plus nu¬merous other locations). Although pricestend to be high (particularly for rock) al¬most all record buying needs can be met atRose’s: rock, jazz, funk, classical, blues. Besure to check out the upstairs section fortheir fab selection of imports.Second Hand Tunes (1375 E. 53rd St. and2548 N. Clark) In addition to Dr. Wax—lo¬cated two blocks south of the NorthsideSecond Hand Tunes—these stores are theplace to buy and sell used records. The pa¬tience required to sift through the stacksof albums and singles is often rewarded atSecond Hand Tunes with the discovery ofhard-to-get rock, jazz, blues, and soul clas¬sics. Remember to check the quality of therecord before you buy it—there is usuallyno chance to return your purchase.Spin-lt (1444 E. 57th St.) The record empo¬rium of Hyde Park carries the latest hitsand a recently improved selection of 12”singles. Prices are average-$6.99 and$7.99 for albums-but watch for specialswhen the prices drop a dollar or two. Themain attraction of Spin-lt are the bargainbins in the back which carry various un¬seen in America records, cut-outs, and oc¬casional almost-new records at bargainprices.Importes Etc (711 S. Plymouth Court) Thelargest selection of disco 12” in the city.More gay disco oriented than Loop Re¬cords, but with all the BMX mix stuff too.They carry a large selection of Italian andBritish imported 12”s. Very friendly andhelpful staff. — K.W.ARTby J. Griffin ProbesI bet this is titled ART, right? Well, thisis really an abbreviated listing of localand Chicago area galleries. Hyde Park hastwo of the best galleries in the city, theHyde Park Art Center in the Del Prado Hoteland the Renaissance Society, just a shortelevator trip to the 4th floor of Cobb Hall.The Renaissance Society each year has“The Art for Young Collectors Sale” whichnobody should miss. Both these galleriesalways have shows which are well worth(seeing. If you get the urge to see more gal¬leries, here is the list. Remember-seeinqgalleries is called “gallery hopping” be¬cause they are all right on top of eachother. The best time to really HOP is thenight of the openings. This used to be thefirst Friday of every month, but that is nottrue anymore for all galleries. The onlyway to find out is to look at the weekendguide in Friday's Tribune. Nobody’s list iscomplete. The Grey City usually lists gal¬lery shows of merit, and serves as a goodguide to what is happening in all areas ofthe arts. Armed with these two publica¬tions. you will have a rough idea of what'sgoing on, but HOPPING always providessome fun surprises. Anyway, here is thelist:One mile west of Michigan on Superiorstreet, the River North Gallery Districtnow has almost all of the metro art scene.It is a little too polished here, especiallysince nobody should wander down ChicagoAvenue past Orleans after dark. Some ofthese galleries have just set up in the areafor the new season, which began Sept.14.210-212 West SuperiorDart, Donald Young, Hokin/Kaufman. BetsyRosenfield, J. RosenthalThese galleries are a good introduction tothe hopping process. Dart puts on goodshows, and the funny layout of the placemakes it good for openings. Donald Younghas some really classy shows for such asmall space. H/K has a basement — this re¬viewer likes galleries with basements —but this gallery, even with a basementdoesn't know how to have a good time.Too stuffy. Now cross the street to...215 W.

SAIC has used some money toput a little gallery in behind Objects. Fuvture shows promise to be well done, but ifthe intent is to try to get things that looklike gallery objects in a thing that lookslike a gallery it’s a flop right now.

Things like MaxwellStreet on Sunday at 6 AM, or Pilsen any-time (Mexican), or the crazyGreek/Jewish/Indian neighborhood onDevon. There are many ethnic museums inthese neighborhoods, like the Polka Muse¬um on the West Side or the DuSable Muse¬um in our backyard.

Maybethis will provoke an article from some¬one.RADIOby Randy KellyEven though the University does nothave a school or degree for broadcasting,WHPK-FM is on the educational frequen¬cies. Since we aren’t using the station toeducate djs, then, the presence of rockprogramming could easily raise some eye¬brows. After all, there would seem to beenough rock on the airwaves now. Butthere’s some interesting music out there inthe realm of the backbeat. This music isnot what usually finds airplay on the bigFM stations, though, so the rock djs of thebrief period. So they end up reducingthemselves to shlock, even if catchyshlock, to cast the net as wide as possible.Love songs appeal to everyone, so stick tolove themes. And stick to standard ar¬rangements. The spunky, the offbeat, theidiosyncratic, all get lost.Since WHPK is noncommercial it doesn’thave to work within that restriction. In¬stead you can listen to the best in alterna¬tive. ..uh...pop music. Formally, I suppose,alternative pop is an oxymoron, but whatit refers to is simple enough: tomorrow’smusic today. Music that sounds a littlestrange to the ears at first because com¬mercial programmers are afraid to put iton the air. But music that will be watereddown next year, or the year after that,with the technical effects swiped and usedfor more shlock. Rock on the radio here isdesigned for the ears of those who preferto take it straight.Because of the idea behind rock atWHPK you can hear, today, the groupsthat will be reviewed in the New YorkTimes two singles, one EP, and two albumslater. (That’s what happened o Husker Duand the Minutemen last weekend.) Afterthe public has been softened up to thesound by exposure on stations like WHPK.But that’s the easy part, the part that col¬lege radio has become notorious for.There’s also the more challenging part.WHPK plays rock that will never receivemajor label distribution and can probablynever be adjusted to fit the mainstream.Music that falls between the cracks of thegenre labels, and can usually be foundonly in the rock shows, like Brave Comboand the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Or Lai¬bach, the Slovenian Industrial Noise Dance'group. On the other hand, now that Throb¬bing Gristle has broken the British popcharts maybe Laibach can be slipped intothe mix, in a year or so. Then, of course,there’s the new rebop, the hot hiphop. Or,as it’s called by the middle-aged crowdhere on the South Side, that rap shit. Notonly can you hear that, you can also listento the great late-sixties R&B that neversanitized itself for the big crossover, like0. V. Wright’s “Nickel and a Nail”. Some¬one on the rock staff even has a copy ofArt’s recording of "Ugly People WithFancy Haircuts,” the one with the immortallines “Don’t touch me, I’m New Wave;Don't touch me, I’m New Wave/We're allBoat People’’...There’s also the more con¬ventional sound of catchy melodies, sharparrangements, and crisp harmonies, butwith an uncompromising attitude towardsthe world that makes otherwise sweetmusic totally unacceptable for mainstreamcommercial FM.Most college stations in the area aretraining their djs to play simple shlockwith a smooth voiceover. If you have anyinterest in pushing to the limit of the nowsound, you can find it on the South Side bylistening to WHPK. The far left bank ofyour FM dial.sometimes — while we're on the subject.Feature is fun you can see very good stuffthere. Hudson makes bad punch, but theopenings are a great HOP. Deson has Art.Anyway, all these galleries are good,three of them are really four star joints.Greyson gets mention because he is verynice for an owner. Z-L because you can seethe owner bitching with her contractors onweekdays. Just part of the ambience.The other commercial galleries are locat¬ed in the 600 N. Michigan building. It isawkward to hop around in this buildingyou have to take the elevator and it ispainfully slow. The galleries here areworth the trip, though I’ve never been toany openings here.Richard Gray, Zaks, Worthington, VarchimHammerThe Worthington is a great gallery forGerman Expressionism. It has great shows(and the reputation of being where NewYork dealers come to get lots of theirstuff). It is probably the nicest commercialgallery in town. A little stuffy, but it de¬serves it. Four Stars. Richard Gray justmoved to the 600, so it doesn’t officiallyopen until Oct. 12. Richard Gray is one ofthose ‘we buzz you in’ places, but they willlet you look around. You know that theyare successful. Perhaps he was a U of CMBA student. The gallery is currentlyshowing the drawings of David Hockney, itis worth the buzz. Zaks has good shows.Varchim is not on anybody's list butmine.The following places are all four stars,but they are not on the beaten path. HoukGallery is Chicago’s only photo gallery thatisn’t appointment only. Currently showingAtget, this place is just west of the MCA.Randolph Street Gallery shows the great,the good and the awful. When they havean opening it is usually followed by aparty. They kick everybody out on thestreet for a half hour to set up to chargeyou money. I wouldn’t do that to my worstenemy, but I guess they can’t help them¬selves. The only place left to see perfor¬mance art except for...NAB which I think is in a bad spot, 331 S.Peoria. They probably don’t get much traf¬fic but have good art.Family Plan Stand isn’t a gallery, rather it'station make it their job to find it for youand make it available to you.To understand what rock on WHPK is allabout you should know something aboutthe way commercial stations operate. Ofall the ways of organizing sound in time,pop music is a deliberate simplificationfrom the total possible kinds of music thatcould be played. Then the commercial sta¬tions add another step: they want musicthat has no possibility of annoying you.Most listeners are only tuned in for fifteento thirty minutes a day, and the main¬stream FM stations want music that willkeep you on their part of the dial for that26—FRIDAY.

City on theMake has, as a result, garnered agood deal of attention. It was writtenby Chicagoans Jeffrey Berkson, DeniseDeClue, and John Karraker, based onthe works of Chicago writer Nelson Al-gren, and produced by the NorthlightTheatre in Evanston. (Well, if you canget there on the El, it’s still Chicago,right?) Because of the enthusiastic pub¬licity, we went into City on the Makewith high hopes. Only a few of themwere dashed.The play itself was disappointing. Itis intended to be a panorama of low¬life in Chicago in the late 40’s; it ismade up of a series of charactersketches set in the city jail for the firstact and an anonymous bar for the sec¬ond. The problem is that this “slice oflife” approach works best for environ¬ments with which the audience is unfa¬miliar, whereas we have becomethoroughly well acquainted with thelife of the underclass of the 40’s and50’s, both through such plays as Deathof a Salesman, West Side Story, andthe collected works of Tennesee Wil¬liams. and through recent romanticizedborrowings from the style of that eraCity on the Make, although it is basedon works which were at the time highlyoriginal, now seems—well—cliched Ontop of that, the set immediately andembarrassingly recalls the set of Satur¬day Night Live. This may have some¬thing to do with the fact that DeClueworked with Second City and has re¬cently been collaborating with Tim Ka-zurinsky; whatever the reason, thelook of the set gives the production aninappropriately “lightweight’’ feelwhich is exacerbated by the music. Thesongs in this show are very nice; theyfit easily into the mainstream of theAmerican Musical. But the AmericanMusical is traditionally a creature offantasy, and City on the Make is sup¬posed to portray the dark, filthy no-man's-land that is under the El in Chica¬go. The songs are too nice: theyinterfere with the play's attempt tocommunicate the loneliness of thosepeople and the ugliness of that life.City on the Make turns Algren’s workinto 'an enjoyable ev en i n g Oftheatre"—and that is a pity.But it is indeed enjoyable, thartks tothe skill with which it is performed:that same skill manages to put someguts back into the work. The entirecast—Jim Corti, Kevin Dunn, Joseph Gu-zaldo, Susan Hart. Megan Mullally,Hollis Resnik, and William Youmans—puts in an admirable showing. HollisResnik especially distinguishes herselfthrough the beauty and power of hervoice, which fully redeems what wouldhave been a rather awkward sketchabout a woman who beats her lover todeath with a baseball bat. Megan Mu-lally s performance as Wanda, a Polishjunkie, contributes more to the poi¬gnancy of City on the Make than anyothei single element of the productionIn the first act, she has been arrestedfor possession of drugs; in a six-line di¬alogue with the Captain (Kevin Dunn),she manages to strike straight at theheart of the audience with pure, simplesadness. In the midst of the prettysongs, her performance comes as ashock; the pause after her last linehung tangibly over the audience. In thesecond act. she sings a song called OneMore Fool," into which she puts just theright mixture of sweetness and angst.Special praise is also due to RickSnyder, who accompanied the singerson the piano and proved himself to bean excellent arijd expressive musician.In sum, I do'recommend that you seeCity on the Make. I even more stronglyrecommend that you try to catch an¬other of Northlight's productions thisseason: such talented performerswould, do credit to the best of plays Fi¬nally, I would suggest tnat you keep inmind that you are going to see thisshow, which is about the down-troddendowntown underclass, in the companyof a bunch of overdressed upper-classesthetes in Evanston. I found thinkingabout that juxtaposition as interestingas seeing the show.City on the Make is being shownthrough Oct. 28 at the NorthlightTheatre, 2300 Green Bay Road in Evan¬ston. For info, call 869-7278. To getthere by mass transit: Take the Jeffreybus to the Art Institute. Walk to theAdams St. entrance of the Howard El.Take the El to the Howard stop; waitthere for the Evanston train. Get off atthe Noyes stop. Walk west to GreenBay; walk north to what looks like anelementary school — and that’s it!

Consequently, my lies would be¬come ever more convoluted and my adven¬tures ever more adventuresome to accom¬modate past lies and lost hours. It wasonly through a strange twist of fate andthe friend of a friend that I found myselfworking at the fruit stand on the corner ofMonroe and State. I’d wake up at five-thirty to empty streets where the grimewas about as indestructible as a stale loafof bread and return home on the heels ofthe weary evening exodus. Nevertheless,the time in-between was filled with manypeople who call the city their heme.lished (meaning that I was a political liber¬al) that the potent of our conversationrose above his endless chant of “fast,Fast, FAST.’’ Russians, if given the chance,are about as conservative as you couldwant. Thus we spent the slow morninghours between nine and twelve arguingabout the usual things; with me being asunabashedly idealistic as possible againsthis well intentioned but compulsive conser¬vatism. “See, America es now strong. Rea¬gan es good guy. Yah, he es my man!” —he would smile and show the gold teethwhich replaced ones he had lost in fist-fights, and the '73 war in Israel. He treat¬ed the invasion of a country with about asmuch senstivity and compassion as certainuniversities do when investing in repres¬sive regimes. Yet, when I once said thatthe Bill of Rights had more to do withAmerica's greatness than Reagan’s tanksand nerve gas, he was silent and didn'teven try to change the subject.Of course, he did fire me in the end, butwhen I returned to pick up my pay for thelast time, he stopped at the height of thelunch hour to clasp my hand and say, “Thisis a game for you, huh? Just a game. Well Isee you!” His wife Hanna said good-byealso and they both were s6on lost in a blurof people clamoring for lunch.I.AlexAlex owned the stand. He immigratedfrm Moldavia which used to be known aRumania and which is now part of Russia.He slept only after counting the day’stake, and then only for four hours, untiltwo, when he had to get up and go to thefarmers’ market and buy the day’s fruit.Granted, I was not fantastically enthu¬siastic about my chores, but much of myseeming inability to fold cardboardboxes, cut up branches of grapes and fetchice from the cooler stemmed from his ma¬chine-gun delivery of insults, nasty words,and mispronunciations. “Reek,” he wouldsay (referring to another student worker)“Reek es allight. But you (referring to me)stupid. You no brain.” I was informed thatI was the worst worker he had ever had inhis whole three years in the business. Hesuspected that my parents had bribed theUniversity to accept me (a frequent occur¬rence in Russia).Despite my ineptness, or rather becauseof it, he kept me on, felling a charitableduty to discipline me. One of his favoritejokes was “You in the Army. Tell yourfriends — ‘Yeah I was in the army, theAaalex Army!’ ” I could only smile whenhe said this. I was not the only one to suf¬fer his wrath. Louie, a humble Polish immi¬grant from Canada, has been fired (andrehired) ten times...Strange as it may seem, it wasn’t untilthe full extent of my stupidity was estab¬II.The Grossest Man in the WorldHe dressed in a gas station attendant’suniform with black shoes, baggy navyblue pants and a light blue shirt strainingagainst a prominent beer belly. His rolledup sleeves revealed skinny arms turneddark swirls of blue and green as the resultof intensive tattoo farming. Guarding theentrance to the alley, with his hands on hiships, he looked like a grinning urn. Hewould often be there all afternoon and ifthe ventriloquist stationed himself at thecorner of the alley the man would standabove him, with his Hitler mustache andbalding head, looking like a defective ge¬neric gargoyle. When I walked past him,balancing my cargo of boxes and rotting’ to be thrown out, he would eye mewiti. ointless suspicion or perhaps I’d findhim urinating behind a van. (We used thealley illegally, I might add. Once Wool-worths discovered we were filling theirdumpster they chased us away). I have notvisited the alley since I was fired.III.Stuck In The MiddleAs the bus plodded down Michigan Ave¬nue during Rush hour, I sat behind a simp¬le, unnoticeable young woman. Among thenext crop of passengers there was a hand¬some athletic male personified by his Ray-Ban sunglasses. He complained to those ofus sitting and ignoring the crush of thenew passengers and who could do nothingabout it anyway, that people ought toobey the signs on the bus that instructthis, the aforementioned young woman man¬aged to sit down behind me. As he didthem, the aforementioned young wom^nsaw her chance and defended the direc¬tionless lemmings, remarking that it wasunreasonable to expect people to changetheir mind once they have one. The Ray-Ban man replied that expecting people toread and obey signs wasn't that strange:he did. After this, there was a half block ofsilence that should have lasted nine or ten,but the woman would not have it so.“I just came back from the Art Instituteand the Degas exhibit.”“Good for you.” responded the Ray-Banman, putting his glasses in his breast pock¬et.“I believe that it is important to see artlike that because, you know, to under¬stand the future I feel you have to under¬stand and appreciate the past.”Then the conversation officially began,for the man responded that old art was, ina word, old and that the only art that in¬terested him for reasons other than histor¬ical was that which was of and expressedhis own time. The woman was amazed andcould not believe his nerve and with heavysarcasm stuttered. “Well, well I guess youthink you're pretty special.”“I am.”“Hey, well I think I'm pretty special too.cause I'm Jewish.”So was he. In fact we soon found out thathe was also a concert pianist (playing onlyPhilip Glass compositions, I suppose) and asurgeon (performing only plastic sur¬gery?). The poor woman had unintention¬ally locked herself into mortal combatagainst a god. How could she ever win?“Well I’m from Cincinatti and you canget that I wanna go back arid when I do I’mgonna tell ’em all, how rude and snottythey are here.”"I hope you do.”“Yeah? When the Reds win the pennantand whip the Cubs' ass, you’re gonna wishyou never said that.”The man stood fast behind the Cubs andsuccinctly criticized some aspect of theReds. After this there was no doubt wherethe sympathies of the other passengerslay All regarded the stranger with a mix¬ture of suspicion and pity. Unable to de¬fend herself, she went on the attack.“Too bad you're such a snot, you’d neverget me in bed!”“I’m sorry, but my taste in women ismuch higher than you, be assured ofthat.”“Well I hope you don’t get laid, but theycan have you.”“Better than you any day.”It was unspeakably vicious, and all thewhile the woman was becoming very agi¬tated while the man remained eminentlycool. The woman was preparing to dropher next bomb, but alas it was time for meto get off. As my feet reached the pave¬ment. the bus disappeared in a roar and apuff of smoke.IV.The Biting GirlOne afternoon, eating ice cream andtalking with a friend along with her onelittle charge, the friend asked the fouryear old to tell me about something thathad happened only two days before.She had left him and his brother in theback seat of the car while she ran into abuilding on a quick errand. Upon return¬ing. she discovered that the two boys hadteeth and scratch marks all over their ex¬posed arms and necks. Had they beenfighting? No, and the boy lazily recountedthe memory for us, perhaps sweetened bythe chocolate ice cream.A young girl had come down to the halfopened front door window, poked herhead in, and asked if they would let her inwhich, perceiving no threat, they did. Onceinside, she explained that because shewas black and they were white, she had tobite and scratch them, which she did.I was flabbergasted by this horror storyand reduced to uncomprehending laugh¬ter. Didn’t it hurt? Though she attackedthem unprovoked, his voice lacked anysign of resentment or fear. Throughout theincident the two boys remained in theirseatbelts. I have no idea just what thissays about race relations in this city ofours, only that it does not sound healthy.“She said she was a biting girl,” headded.THE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1984—31“Crawdad by Robert ShawNew Czech FictionE W8 19 8 4DolanRHke_JUNIVERSITY NATIONAL BANKA FULL SERVICE BANK READY TO SERVE YOUWELCOMES NEW AND RETURNING STUDENTS,STAFF AND FACULTY-Checking Accounts-Savings Accounts-N.O.W.

Unlike other modernistsRilke did not revolt against the staidVictorian cliches that had renderedthe art of the previous age all but in¬consequential, he merely ignoredthem. This singular drive to burrowdeep into himself and ignore theworld’s course is the strength andweakness of his poems. The fascinat¬ing leaps of Rilke’s mind in his workwhen seen against the personal strug¬gles of his life reflect not only the con¬flicts of the poet, but of every search¬ing individual.Leppmann’s biography, Rilke, ALife, admirably reads like a novel asit traces the nomadic wanderings andtransient relationships of the poet.Yet in his efforts to make Rilke humanand understandable, Leppmann oftenglosses over the contradictions thatdrove the artist. The biographerwants to show first how Rilke was aproduct of his age, and secondly, howhis work fits into the framework of hislife, it’s precisely these junctures,however, where Rilke differs fromothers of his time, and where his workcontradicts his actions, which fasci¬nate one but also leave certain vitalquestions unanswered. Obviouslythere is a relation between the ar¬tist’s work, life, and his time, but it isoften one of denial, resistance, andsuppression, rather then direct reflec¬tion. This can only be seen upon read¬ing A Life carefully, and comparing itsnarrative to the poems Rilke's lifebirthed.Rilke was born in Prague in 1875,then the capitol of Bohemia, which helater described as “that, God forgiveme, miserable city of subordinate ex¬istences.” He grew up under the suffo¬cating pressure of an aspiring genteelfamily, the same pressure whichcausecT Franz Kafka, Rilke’s contem¬porary in place and time, to write“The Metamorphosis” in 1915. How¬ever the young poet was unable toexamine his life with Kafka’s inten¬sity until much later. His early work ismelodramatic, idealistic, and maud¬lin.Rilke was already attempting toescape his environment by recastingit in his work, he turned inwardtowards his imagination, but withoutthe fierce revelatory insights of hislater poems. Leppmann explainsaway conflicts, such as the artistbeing forced to wear dresses, withblissful simplicity. “Surely little Renewas not the only boy ever spoiled andraised as though he were a girl. Onemight just as easily see in (hismother’s) pedagogy the well-mean¬ing, harmless sentimentality of awoman unable to get over the loss ofher first child.” The facts that thepoet stopped speaking with hismother when he turned twenty andwas involved almost exclusively witholder women, and his inability to as¬sume his filial responsibilities, Lepp¬mann does not discuss. Rilke’s brutalindictment of wives who write whenhe was sent a group of women’snovels is particularly revealing:Every women who is unhappy,every one who has leapt into hermistaken marriage with themost joyous conviction and thencrawled out again deeplywounded and filled with right¬eous anger...writes her storyand tells, in the faulty Germanof her school years, of the bur¬den of fate oppressing her, theinjustice of life, and the intensityof her unfulfilled longings, whichshe takes outrageously serious¬ly.Rilke’s mother had written a thin vol¬ume of sayings when the poet was inhis teens. It is interesting that Rilke’sown rhetoric on women and love — hedefined love once as two solitudesthat protect and border and greeteach other — illustrate his own ro¬mantic notion which he himself couldnot fulfill.This longing for unattainable idealstates pervades the poets entire lifeand become a creed of living in the“Duino Elegies”. Rilke began trav¬elling early, often with no provoca¬tion, and was always filled with asense of his own homelessness. Theonly place he did become attached towas Russia, and even then he ignoredthe impending revolt of the Bolshe¬viks — which afterwards he den¬ounced as a passing fad — and cen¬tered his impressions on theliterature of the people. However, de¬spite this longing for an imagineryworld and an inability to find a home,Rilke was attached to specific placesand objects. The “Duino Elegies” re¬mained unfinished until he foundMuzot, a castle that recalled the stoicsolidarity of the Duino castle that in¬spired the whole series. And upon fin¬ishing his most famous poem hewrote, “I went outside..and strokedlittle Muzot like a big animal, its oldwalls which granted this to me.” Simi¬larly he carried in his head the precisedimensions of his writing table, whichhe had built wherever he elected tostay. Finally, there are numerous de¬scriptions of the poet’s eiegant, al¬most floppish, attire, and Leppmannamply demonstrates that the artistmanipulated social occasions to hisgreatest benefit with ease, grace,and no hard feelings. There is a strug¬gle here between Rilke’s reliance onhis evolving imaginary world, and hispersistance in manipulating the ex¬ternal world with calculating effi¬ciency.In Rilke’s early poems he courts ar¬tistic separation with a lyrical thoughentirely self-centered, tongue. The“Blindman’s Song” ends:Are the tunes familiar? Youdon’t sing them like this;how can you understand?Each morning the sunlight comesinto your house;and you welcome it as a friend.And you know what it’s like tosee face to face;and that tempts you to be kind.Devoid of sentimentality, this poemhas a tough commanding voice, butalso a certain bragging swagger thatflaws it. These early poems are pro¬jected outwards, we are supposed toadmire the outer shell of the individu¬al and his artistic distance from ourlives, but not get under it. In Paris,however, Rilke wrote a monographon an artist whose example changedthe young poets whole attitudetowards writing. The man was Au¬guste Rodin, a sculptor of alreadyworld renown, 25 years Rilke’s se¬nior. Rodin stressed that an artistmust devote his entire life to hiswork, (women were not consideredartists), and for the recently marriedRilke, already finding responsibilitiesa burden, it was perfect fodder for ra¬tionalizing his actions. Rodin neverwaited for inspiration, his work waswhat he did each day, and so whenRilke complained of a writing blockthe uncomprehending craftsman in¬structed him to go to the zoo andwrite down what he saw.Out of this experience came thestartling poem about looking, “ThePanther”.His vision, from the constantlypassing bars,has grown weary that it cannotholdanything else. It seems to himthere area thousand bars; and behind thebars, no world.As he paces in cramped circles,over and over,the movement of his powerfulsoft stridesis like a ritual dance around acenterin which a mighty will standsparalyzed.Only at times, the curtain of thepupilslifts, quietly —. An image entersin,rushes down through the tensed,arrested muscles,plunges into the heart and isgone.It should be noted that this masterfultranslation by Stephan Mitchellrenders both the muscular, almostoverblown diction, and the poem’sstrictly literal meaning better thanany other in English. In others, the re¬versal of the bars passing over the-animal's eyes is often dropped, andthe sense of identification that initiat¬ed the poem is lost. This poem projectsnot only the physical space that theanimal takes up as it paces, but the in¬ternal space in which the outer worldis consumed. It is a frightening visionon the restriction of vision, and thefinal line leaves us with an ambiguousemptiness. The impact of this singleimage seems to be in its passing, thespace it leaves in the animals con¬sciousness upon passing through thephysical body, and not the content ofthe image itself. The intensity withwhich the poet visualizes the big catsvisions draws us into the poem, wesense it as a personal portrait and re¬experience it with Rilke.Another poem from Rilke’s firstgreat collection, “New Poems”, has aconfrontational identification. In “Ar¬chaic Torso of Apollo”, the poet isshocked by the revelation that a mul-tilated piece of Greek sculpture is infact more alive than he is. He de¬scribes attributes of power — artistic,physical, and sexual — that he him¬self cannot feel. The headless torso,“is still suffused with brillance frominside,/ like a lamp in which his gaze,now turned to low,/ gleams in all itspower.” Again this poem begins witha sense of absence which turns backon the reader. In the act of seeing oneis seen. The final lines — “for there isno place/ that does not see you,. Youmust change your life” — are an em¬phatic, humbling statement. It is notdelivered with condescending superi¬ority, for its power to burrow into usis also felt by Rilke. The poem has re¬velatory quality. We feel that thepoet found it in the act of writing andhas not merely reenacted an old ex¬perience.The poet asserted that an artistmust not “become conscious of his in¬sights,” but rather let them “enterinto his work so abruptly that he can¬not recognize them at the moment oftheir appearance.” There is an admi¬rable open-endedness in this idea,and it follows Rilke’s belief that hiswork came from sources outside, orfar inside, himself. But he also seemsto have had the same attitude to hislife. Rilke hid behind the facade of anartist too entranced with his work todeal with the world. He admired Ce¬zanne for not attending his ownmother’s funeral when he was in¬spired with an insight, and, in a simi¬lar vein, Rilke ignored his wife anddaugher, Ruth. What is surprisinghowever, is that the poet continued toespouse equality between the sexesand the importance of deep commit¬ments that take one outside ones-selfRainer Maria Rilke as a childThe model of highest love that Rilkeputs before us is that of the unrequit¬ed female lover. Like the panther’sgaze which sears through the act ofseeing because it is so fiercely bound¬ed, love is strongest when frozen half-finished. This idea places the empha¬sis on longing, rather than onfulfillment, on absence rather thanpresence, and on the imagined worldrather than the physical. In “Requi¬em”, written about Paula Modersohn-Becker, a painter friend who died, thepoet says “We need, in love, to prac¬tise only this: letting each other go.For hold on/ comes easy; we don’tneed to learn it.” It is ironic that aman so adverse to holding on shouldsay this. What Rilke asserts is that hehas attained that higher state of theunrequited. But behind this we find aman justifying, in retrospect, hisshort-comings. “Requiem” ends by la¬menting the fact that Paula becamepregnant and was forced to stoppainting and “take up once again/ thebodies narrow circulation.” Thisshows Rilke’s odd distrust of thephysical, particulary birth, which isusually seen as a metaphor for an ar¬tists work. For him life was the enemyof art, and sexuality, when unful¬filled, created a deep creative long¬ing. While fulfilled, if left onedrained, preoccupied, and living toohard. It is an odd argument, and in itwe find Rilke battling his mother’s re¬strictions and expectations, and alsohis own withdrawl from long rangecommitments. He wants to say thatall his actions come about by hischoice, but in the tension between hiswork and his life we feel the back-biteof his conscience.What is so striking is that Rilke —unable to find fulfillment in the tradi-tiona sense — glorified the longing tobe fulfilled. It is precisely because hewas such a solitary individual that hespeaks to us with such startling fer¬vor. He speaks from a space deep in¬side ourselves that is always search¬ing for a mirror in the external world;but this is not pure naricissism, forRilke sought to expose the roots thatmade his personal feelings universalones.The “Duino Elegies” culminateRilke’s desire to embody the desolatelonging he so admired and turn it intoa productive, almost prophetic force.Their fluid movement, argumentiveleaps, and acrobatic, from-all-points-at-once perspective mark them aunique twentieth-century work. In thesecond elegy Rilke, in a voice filledwith humor as well as pathos, says:But we, when moved by deepfeeling, evaporate; webreathe ourselves out andaway; from moment to mo¬mentour emotion grows fainter, like aperfume. Though someonemay tell us:“Yes, you’ve entered my blood¬stream, the room the wholespringtimeis filled with you...” — whatdoes it matter?continued on page 6The Chicago Literary Review, Friday September 28, 1984—5continued from page SThe corollary of our transience arethe angels to whom Rilke cries out inthe first elegy. The angels embodylonged for absence, they do not recog¬nize or inhabit the world of sequentialevents. As one old proverb goes,angels do not always know if they arewalking among the living or the dead.The elegies have such a seamless con¬tinuity and astonishing perser-verance of thought that we feel weare accompanying the poet on such awalk.Rather then try to encompass thewhole complex scope of the elegies,which have a difficult and delightfulsweep to them in this marveloustranslation which should be taken infull, I will just quote extensively fromthe eighth elegy, which has the grea¬test relevance to our discussion. Itbegins:With all its eyes the naturalworld looks outinto the Open. Only our eyes areturnedbackward...for we take the veryyoungchild and force it around, so thatit seesobjects — not the Open, which issodeep in animals faces. Free fromdeath.This passage returns us immediatelyto the panther, but with a depth of un¬derstanding about where that powercomes from. It is the invisible that suf¬fuses the animals gaze, a lack of con¬sciousness about what is and what isnot, a readiness to accept which Rilkefinds so admirable. His romantic viewis that longing in its pure form desiresno outcome, therefore to look withoutwanting for oneself, without wantingit all, is the only way to truly see. Hisnext analogy — “Lovers, if the be¬loved were not there/ blocking theview, are close to it, and marvel.../ Asif by some mistake, it opens for them/behind each other...But neither canmove past/ the other, and it changesback to world” — we recognize as alltoo precise.Finally the elegy closes with therevelation that “no matter what wedo we are in the posture/ of someonegoing away.” Because we left theworld of undivided light that the an¬imal is still close to, because we areforever relying on objects and exter¬nal actions to see the world, and be¬cause we fear our own power, we turnaway from it. It is this power to sus¬pend belief and trust in the flight ofpoetry that Rilke has risen to. His lan¬guage itself is logically incorrect, butinescapably right. He describes us allas “terrified and fleeUng from” our¬selves, “the way / a crack runsthrough a teacup. So the bat/ quiversacross the procelain of evening.”When the elegies were finally com¬plete — their beginning and end spanten years and a world war — they be¬came part of the great wellspring ofnew literature which was art of thephysic reconstruction of the years1922-1925. But unlike Mann’s TheMagic Mountain, Proust’s later por¬tions of Remembrance of Things Past,Joyce's Ulysses, and T.S. Eliot’s TheWateland, Rilke’s work is not aboutreliving, put penatrating. The cata¬logues that suffuse Joyce’s workwould never come from Rilke, he ismuch more closely related toNietzche’s idea of God-making. ForRilke, art was a way into himself andout of life. When we read Leppmann’sbiography closely we find a manwhose ideas came not from what hechose to do in life, but what he had todo, and it is from that inner worldthat his voice speaks. Listen:Yes — the springtime neededyou. Often a starwas waiting for you to notice it.A wave rolled toward youout of the distant past, or as youwalkedunder an open window, a violinyielded itself to your hearing.All this was mission.But could you accomplish it?Weren’t you alwaysdistracted by expectation, as ifevery eventannounced a beloved? (Wherecan you find a placeto keep her, with all the hugestrange thoughts inside yougoing and coming and oftenstaying all night.)How Summer Knew to BeginStrange that summer knew to beginAs Bobo put her baby inThe washer.

MA 02138The Chicago Literary Review, Friday September 28, 1984—7are immediately entertaining ordeeply provocative. This is an enjoy¬able novel, Skvorecky is sly and pas¬sionate and flexible. But it would beeasier to understand the author'struth, which is frequently discussedand suggested by his characters, ifthere was a little bit less of it.Readers of Skvorecky’s earlierwork will recognize the lyric nostal¬gia of his novellas, “The Bass Saxo¬phone’’ and his amazing “Emoke’’, aswell as the author’s interest in jazzfrom his first novel, The Cowards. Thehero of The Cowards is also the narra¬tor of Engineer. Danny Smiricky, andwhile he is now thirty years older andteaching English at a small Canadiancollege, Danny is still obsessive andridiculously immature. All in the nameof clean slapstick humor, but giventhe serious message that Skvoreckywishes to impart, the locker roomfarces and chauvinist jokes are toofrequently repeated and they losetheir satirical effect after the firsttwo chapters.Structurally, Engineers is inven¬tive, almost cinematic in its composi¬tion, and Skvorecky deftly travelsback and forth between the exilecommunity in Toronto in the 1970’sand Danny’s experiences in Czechos¬lovakia from the years of Nazi occu¬pation to the date of his own emigra-t ion. Memories a nd na r r a t i v eoverlap, often they are essentiallyone and the same as characters anddesires are renewed in differentforms throughout the novel. The orga¬nization of the novel has a certain ele¬gance and balance to it that is unfor-t u n a t e I y o b s c u r e d -b y t h eoverbearing dimensions of each of itselements. The seven chapters aregiven to writers that Danny is cur¬rently reading with his class at Eden-vale College: Poe, Hawthorne. Twain,Crane, Fitzgerald. Conrad and Love-craft. Their work is further entwinedwith the lives of Danny, his studentsand fellow expatriates, by allusion,quotation and class discussions.Danny’s relationship with his stu¬dents is one of the more disappoint¬ing aspects of the book: the class dis¬cussion is too implausibly stupid andselfish to amuse a reader when it re¬sumes itself on and off for sixhundred pages.There are some memorable andwonderfully realized stories andcharacters in Engineers. The youngDanny is in love with, among others, agirl he works with at a Messerschmittfactory. There is a haunting, practi¬cally deathbound, scene which takestown of Chlumec at the start of WorldWar II. He remembers the date fromthe newspaper whicn falls out of hisfather’s coatpocket at the moment ofJan's procreation. He begins to parti¬cipate in the nation’s resistancemovement (this information given inresponse to one of the numerous ques¬tions on politics in the application)seventy-seven days before he isborn. He suffers humiliation and in¬dignation as well as a few moments ofbliss while in ibe womb, crying for hislife at his birth because he is sure thathe is drowning.Jan's gestation, as it were, pre¬pares the reader for Grusa’s bothwild and sublime style, and helps tomake clear his hypothetical under¬standing of the questions that Jan isasked to answer. The questions them¬selves are enough to amuse Jan andsend him in every direction exceptthat which the questionnaire ostens¬ibly calls for.Not surprisingly. Grusa's visionaryand suppositional approach to the in¬terrogator's questions gives him li¬cense to use all forms of knowledge.He employs various devices — dream,philosophy, (albeit a bit too Svejkianand, at times, inappropriately ado¬lescent), narrative and relfection —to shed at least a little light on thereasons for Jan's existence. His char¬acter’s vision is expansive and rhap¬sodic, but Grusa omits and condensesthe denotation of most of Jan’s extra¬vagant exursions; his conviction thatpeace is on its way based on the typeof cherries his family eats; his elabo¬rate biography and analysis of awasp, drawn after watching the in¬sect suck the blood out of a woundedman’s hand; his marvellous story ofthe “Vazoom’’, a capricious creature,man, essence, that appears in pivotalsituations in the novel. It is this skill¬ful condensation and swiftness thatsaves the novel from becoming an as¬semblage of enchanting, but confus¬ing. images.Like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, FranzKafka, and the Polish writer, BrunoSchulz, whose work The Question¬naire strongly recalls, Grusa’s worldis built on the simultaneous layeringand juxtaposition of dream and reali¬ty, and he achieves a wholly autono¬mous equilibrium of the two. Theuniqueness of his work lies not in hiselliptical symbols and mythologicalrange of meaning, but in his rather in¬stinctive fascination with the hypnot¬ic and fabulous of everyday life.Imagination is really the heart of thematter as far as Jan is concerned, andit is evoked with an unusual ecstasyand a mood of bewildered content¬ment.Josef Skvorecky, in The Engineer ofHuman Souls, attempts the same com¬prehensive and synchronized fusionof various devices and accumulatedexperiences. The problem with thiswork lies not in its honest and honor¬able effort — subtitled “An Enter¬tainment on the old themes of life,women, fate, dreams, the workingclass, secret agents, love and death’’— but m * ux <; Tt\e enqth and uro jr ‘ ib episoue Kvoreck ,novel make finding a centripetalforce in its body a rather exhaustingtask for the reader. It is certainlythere, but it can hardly keep pacewith the author'-, mpm and discur¬sive orchestratior of treasured irdents and references, even when theyMilan Kunderawork published abroad. Luckily. Ishould say. insofar as it is encourag¬ing to know that we have some com¬munication with the world and thatdespite restrictions, we continue toexist as writers. However, from thepoint of view of what is essential inliterature, which is after all, the prod¬uct of the spirit and language of aspecific community and must be eva¬luated first of all by that community,we are on the same level as those whoare writing for the bureau drawer.And if there are too many drawers,or if the drawer-epoch should last toolong without the hope of change, thenserious structural disturbances of notonly literature but the whole culturewill result.’’It is those structural and essentiallypersonal disturbances which give riseto the paradoxes of the exiles’ suc¬cess and, not infrequently, to theparadoxes of their themes and theircharacters’ lives. While two of thenovels here deal with the theme ofexile from Czechoslovakia specific¬ally. all three are concerned with thecontradictions and transience of exis¬tence anywhere, and under any typeof regime, which make life a conditionof dislocation and derailment.Jiri Grusa’s novel The Question¬naire first appeared in samizdatcopies in 1974. and for this act of “ini¬tiating disorder", Grusa was arrest¬ed and subsequently forced to emi¬grate. It is now being published byRandom House as part of its Aven¬tura series of Contemporary WorldLiterature. Grusa looks at the va¬garies and absurdity of a man’s lifefrom a humorous, and actually sur¬real, distance.

And I con¬demn those in power for so cynicallyexploiting the hunger of those writ¬ers. Because, Dan, I have finallyreached the conclusion that there areall sorts of risks involved in freedom— but the risks of unfreedom are un¬bearable. I can’t bear those risks anylonger. I don’t write. What is moreterrible, I no longer write even formyself, ‘for the desk drawer.’ I onlyread occasionally what they write —the young, and those eternal oldswine. How easy it would be to writesatires of their regurgitations. But Ino longer have the strength.”What gives Danny his strength isthe raucous and colorful community ofexiles in Toronto, and his relation¬ships with two of his students: Veroni¬ka, a younger emigre, bitter and sur¬prisingly cruel, and Irenes, a richCanadian who falls in love with herprofessor. Like most of Skvorecky’scharacters, these two women are in¬teresting enough at first, but theircharm and complexity is strangelyoverexplored, and the professor’s in¬terest in them repetitiously de¬scribed. Veronika, however, doeshelp xto set the story in motiontowards the end of the novel, and sheregains a vividness that most of theother characters lose.Skvorecky understands the com¬plexities of almost too many ideolo¬gies and systems. He is so intent ondismissing them all in pursuit of whatis concretely and eternally humanthat he ends up with a collage of poss¬ible truths and absolutes: love, sex,skepticism, hope, literature. Thereare many different forms and voicesin the novel, and more than a few ofthem are original and illuminating.But the epic and dramatic attempt tobring them together, to sustain themfor over thirty years and in so manyconsciousnesses, suffers with the den¬sity and generosity of the novel.There is a rhythmic and artistic de¬sign to this work, but it has been re¬gretfully mismeasured.Milan Kundera’s approach to com¬plexity and paradox is strikingly dif¬ferent than Skvorecky’s technique ofcollage and allusion. Both writers addto the idea that the most curious andprofound thing about life and historyis that they are built on repetitionand not variation. Kundera is muchmore single-minded about histhought, he strips characters and epi¬sodes down to their essentials, ratherthan filling them up with a lifetime ofdescription. Early in The UnbearableLightness of Being, Kundera displayshis obsession, stylistically and philo¬sophically, with the equality of oppo¬sites and their absolute indivisibi¬lity.By way of Nietzsche’s view of themyth of eternal return as the hea¬viest of burdens, and Parmenides’ di¬vision of the world into positive andnegative poles, Kundera creates twocategories of being: that of lightnessand that of weight. The question forKundera and for his characters iswhich category is positive and whichway of being makes sense; a life with¬out commitment or restriction, forman ‘‘to be lighter than air, to soarinto the heights...and become onlyhalf real, his movements as free asthey are insignificant?”; or life builton unbearable responsibility and loy¬alty, which brings man closer to theearth, is more real and truthful, butwhich crushes him and pins him to theground? ‘‘That is the question. The‘only certainty is: the lightness/weightopposition is the most mysterious,most ambiguous of all.”The power of Kundera’s medita¬tions on this opposition is built on theunforgettable clarity of his thought.The lives of the book’s characters arecomposed on themes, words, jokes,and on the author’s own laws of sym¬metry and tonality. Kundera fre¬quently enters the narrative andstates his intention: ‘‘It would besenseless for the author to try to con¬vince the reader that his charactersonce actually lived. They were notborn of a mother’s womb; they wereborn of a stimulating phrase or two orfrom a basic situation.” Readers whotreasure the invisible narrator ornon-existent creator may becomemore accepting of the visible author,for Kundera’s presence is never em-barassing or intrusive. The self-con¬sciousness of this novel refines it.andadds to its poetry and its irony. Kun¬dera practically outlines his motifs inhis small philosophical essays, butthese have the same musical impactas that of his characters’ dreams.Kundera speaks frankly and harshly,but he is also whimsical, and he israrely dogmatic.The character Tomas, a womanizingsurgeon in Prague, is built on theideas of fortuity, compassion and theGerman adage, Einmal ist keinmal:‘‘what happens but once might as wellnot have happened at all. If we haveonly one life to live, we might as wellnot have lived at all.” A series ofchance circumstances — arrangedaround numbers, books, music and co¬gnac — brings him together withTereza, a young barmaid from aCzech town.Tereza, the character who suffersabsolutely from the weight of being,is born of other images: the rumblingof a stomach, a ‘‘situation which bru¬tally reveals the irreconcilable dua¬lity of body and soul, that fundamen¬tal human experience”; the state ofvertigo, or Tereza’s overwhelminglonging to fall, which Kundera terms‘‘the intoxication of the weak”.Tomas loves Tereza immediately, andhe marries her, but he continues tosee his mistresses, and it is eventual¬ly the weight of Tereza’s life — herjealousy, her fidelity, her weakness— and its possession of Tomas’ “poet¬ic memory’’ which grounds and buriesthem both.Tomas’ mistress, the painter Sa¬bina, is the lightest of beings, theonly one who escapes the weight ofKundera’s despair, but who ends upafraid of the earth and sadly disin¬terested in it. Sabina hates extremesand she also hates choice. She wantsneither a strong nor a weak lover; theone because he would master her andmake her life insufferable, the otherbecause “he lacks the strength togive orders...there are things thatcan be accomplished only by vio¬lence,” Sabina feels, ‘‘physical love isunthinkable without violence.” WhenSabina leaves a lover she leaves thecountry, travelling from Prague toGeneva to Paris and the UnitedStates. But her freedom is eventuallyno less tormenting than Tereza's bur¬den. ‘‘Her betrayals had filled herwith excitement and joy, becausethey opened up new paths to new ad¬ventures of betrayal. But what if thepaths came to and end? One could be¬tray one’s parents, husband, country,love, but when parents, husband,country, and love were gone — whatwas left to betray? Sabina felt empti¬ness all around her. What if empti¬ness was the goal of all her betray¬als?”Sabina’s lover in Geneva, a leftistuniversity professor, lives some¬where between the two distinctworlds of being. Franz is the onlyJosef Skvoreckycharacter who has a choice betweenlightness and weight. Real life forFranz is participating in the move¬ment of history, to take part in con¬flict, drama, and tragedy. In the mostimportant and provocative chapter.“The Grand March”, Franz lives outhis, and Kundera’s, fascination withthe metaphors of ‘‘living in truth”.Franz takes part in a march of West¬ern intellectuals to the Cambodianborder, a satirical and ridiculousscene. In this ironic and convincingchapter, Kundera sums up one of thebasic facts of the human condition:that it is kitsch. Reflecting on thedeath of Stalin's son in a German pris¬on camp in the Second World War, onthe dispute between agnostics andtrue-believers over the acceptabilityof the Creation, and on the meaningof a world where the heart controlsthe mind, Kundera comes up with anaesthetic ideal which controls themodern world and all political partiesand movements. ‘‘This aesthetic idealis kitsch...the categorical agreementwith being is a world in which shit isdenied and everyone acts as though itdid not exist.” This thesis is an essen¬tial one to Kundera. and with his ex¬periences as an artist in Soviet-blocEurope and now as an exile in thedemocratic West, Kundera offers anincredibly damning and unhappy de¬scription of existence anywhere.Few writers can do this with such acombination of passion and ridicule,and it is Kundera’s rare blend ofplayfulness and reflection whichmakes his central thesis a moving andsynthesizing one. Kundera, like manyCzech writers of the Twentieth centu¬ry, has seen absurdity that is shock¬ing and stupid, both in his homecountry and in exile. His achievement,which reaches well out of the contextof Czech or Eastern European fiction,is to turn the laughable and gro¬tesque into tragedy and art. LikeBeethoven, on whom the authormuses. Kundera has turned a ‘‘frivo¬lous inspiration into a serious quar¬tet, a joke into a metaphysical truth.”The Unbearable Lightness of Being ismore than an interesting story oflight going to heavy, positive to neg¬ative. It is a carefully orchestratedfugue, crossing many borders andmany imaginations, and it resonateswith a fundamental unity andweight.The Chicago Literary Review.

Byits own admission, the pain in its sidewas tolerable. Joe festered, and theducks flew all autumn long, circlingthe lake and dropping like buttons.Johnny shot a few, and Willard ofCranton did the most. The biggest, ofcourse, was a goose, and they had itfor Christmas. When it hit the earth, itwent boom. Some feathers fell outand when Willard ran up, they werestrewn around its back legs like let¬tuce, curling.Mattie often heard the guns at sun¬up. She had cleaned some ducks her¬self when she was younger. Pullingthe throat out was the distastefulpart. It was hollow and like pldstic,but wet.When she drove into town, the hunt¬ers were there. She was annoyed.She drove back with only her grocer¬ies. Hadn’t she said she would visitHilda, and didn’t? The hunters an¬noyed her. She would visit in thespring, or at winter’s end, in town.She unpacked the groceries and setthe carton of cigarettes against thesun, when it was out, in the window.Often the window was glazed, starpatterns, or like clear leaves pastedagainst it, sharp at the edges andblurry and blue in late afternoon andevening.

She wrapped them in whitecloths in the morning, moistened witha lotion that smelled, and unwrappedthem often after lunch, say twoo'clock, but sometimes before. Herfingers she left free, so that she couldmove them and make her sandwich. Ifshe made soup, too — and she oftendid — occasionally a string or patch ofit fell loose from her hand anddragged in the soup. But this did nothappen often, and she was contentthat the cloth was clean. She fed thecat what leftovers there were andhad cans from the store ready whenthe duck ran out. There were morescraps when Joe was around.On Sunday she read. Cranton pub¬lished a paper with three sectionseach Saturday night, and she stackedthe papers when she was through bythe side door, in the junk room,through the bedroom at the far end ofthe house. She intended to burn themwhen the stack got high. She boughtthe papers in Stockton. Stockton wasthe nearest, and the Sunday papersgot there, to the filling station, be¬fore eight. Each one was twentycents.Each time she lifted the hook on thescreen door, she wondered what ifshe died and no one could get in? Theywould have to pull the hook out,which wouldn't be hard.

A rapid voicewas passed, then another, narrowedto the point of a pin. She came upon aslow voice, and kept it there. At first,the cat shrunk away.December, Christmas two dayspassed. There have been visitors.There were in the past, also. Theybroke in her door with loud voices.She could find no words, or few. Shestrained to hear what they were say¬ing. Her hair fell over her eyes, andone swept it back for her and pinnedit. They left her there sitting.It’s pushing up harder than he canbear. Mattie, is this what growin' is?I can’t fall apart, no matter me try¬ing. Oh, Mattie, get in the truck.Something like a fold above, a linewhere the damp paper overlaps, di¬viding the bed. It’s been painted,white like the whole ceiling has. It’slike coming down through still water,a long line. She’s naked under thecovers and stares up.I can’t be raisin’ from no grave,Mattie.The moon is round as a chalk piece,right above the mail box. Light comesin the window so that the blue iceangles glow. Several dusty starfishhug each other flat on the glass, dustysparkling with cold.

A few drops fall ontothe beige blanket with orange dots. Ishift my body away from the spilltoward the edge of the blanket sothat the rim of my left calf rests in hotsand—I can’t stand that greasy shit.She rubs the oil on her arms, movingfrom the hands up. Her arms arebrown and dry like worn moccasins;they’re covered with freckles andwhite-blonde fuzz. She moves on toher legs which are muscular from allthe jogging she does, long and clean¬shaven. Miss America legs. She paintsher flat stomach in slick verticalstrokes. It becomes a little valleywith a river of oil and hip bones formountains. She dabs some oil onto hercheeks and the slope and tip of hernose. Before the nose job, she didn’thave a slope which ended in a tip-just a bulb. She unties the straps ofher purple bikini and pulls them downso that the top of her chest is ex¬posed. There are no white lines there.She covers the skin in oil. In an hourand fifteen minutes Dana will turnover and I’ll do her back. She glistensin the too-bright sun.I’ve been trying to write a newsong. “Baby, it’s a hard road/Life isjust a big load/ Take my hand and I’lllead you away/ We’ll blow this townand find a better way...’’ I usuallywork on melody, but since I have allthis time at the beach, I’ve been con¬centrating more on my lyrics. Cyndi—whose name is really Cindy—usuallywrites the lyrics. The two themes I ex¬plore in my songs are love and urbanblight; Bruce Springsteen is my rockand roll hero. I sing and play guitar ina band called The Electric Ladies. Allof the band members are female.Cyndi, who’s the oldest—seventeen—is the lead singer. Her parents have alot of money and a soundproofedbasement we rehearse in. Cyndi stuffsher chubby legs into black leatherpants with silver sparkle stripesalong the sides for every perfor¬mance. Mountain—she’s called thatbecause she’s so tall—is the drummer.She’s fifteen. She’s a gangly girl withfreckles and short—almost crew-cut-orange hair. She’s my favorite Lady.When Cyndi does her act, Mountainmugs her behind the drum set. Pat,the bass player, is a solid musician—probably the best in the group—butshe’s a quiet girl who never smiles.We heard her father only has onearm. Toni, the keyboardist, is the gluein the group. She plays up to Cyndi,but still laughs at her with me andMountain. Toni wears boating shoesand bermuda shorts, and has asturdy, square body. She wanted togo to the Naval Academy at Annapo¬lis after high school, but they told herher feet were too flat. So far we’veonly given three performances: twoSweet Sixteen parties and a benefitdinner for the Fire Department Toni’sfather organzed.e ♦ eThis is to be the summer we get toknow each other. Dana’s twenty-nine,thirteen and a half years older thanme. She’s my only sister. She’s somuch older she feels less like my sis¬ter than an acquaintance I am sudden¬ly forced to confront. We drive to thebeach together every day. Danadoesn’t have to show up at the healthclub until six, and, now that school isover, my days are completely free.Three months away is my sixteenthbirthday and entry into the world ofwork. I should be relishing my lastbits of freedom, I am told; next sum¬mer I won't be able to loaf around onthe beach all day. Dana likes to dragme along, I believe, to ward off all themen that try to pick her up. Often themen come to the blanket anyway,with a friend on the leash—alwaysshort and often foreign—to occupyme. Dana’s no good at telling peopleto get lost—she smiles at their stupidjokes, she lets them borrow her tan¬ning oil. The sidekick and I squint ateach other in the sun. He shifts his feetback and forth in the sand, no happierwith this role than I am.Dana says it’s time. She has spentan hour and fifteen minutes on eachside and now it’s time for a twelveminute swim. She clocks herself. I getrestless waiting two and a half hoursto cool off every day, but I wait any¬way; I think of it as a trial I must passto enter the big leagues: the Marines,say, or adulthood. Besides, I don’twant Dana to think I’m a baby. In thewater she swims twenty laps. It is dif¬ficult to swim laps in an ocean, but shechooses markers to approximate thelength of a pool: a torn red and whiteCoca-Cola cup for one side, and anempty Miller beer can for the other.Luckily, there aren’t too many wavesto slosh her garbage around. I neverlearned to swim anything more so¬phisticated than the dog paddle, so Iwait for Dana closer to the shore. I amembarrassed to be seen by the otherpeople on the beach as a non-swim¬mer,so I dunk myself a few times,practice the Dead Man’s Float, andjump at the slightest hint of a wave.Last summer we only went to thebeach together a few times. Dana wasbusy fixing her divorce: searching fora studio apartment, moving furniture,talking with her lawyer, having long,hushed conversations with her girlfriends on the telephone. I waspleased about the divorce: Bill, herhusband, had a pasty face and a badtemper. He talked baby talk to herand walked around the house in hisunderwear, even when company wasover. And he was too tall: 6’4’’. Idon’t trust men who are too tall;there’s always a part of the body youcan’t reach, therefore, inspect closeenough. Dana’s new boy friend, whois also named Bill, has a ruddy faceand a red beard. He looks like he justfinished shoveling snow.• * •The red-haired woman sitting nextto us lifts up her blanket and shakesthe sand off, sending a comforting, ifstale, breeze over my legs. Five moreminutes until we go in the water. I’vefinished a new song, “Don’t Give YourLove Away, Sugar’’. I think baby isoverused as a term of endearment inpop songs, so I try to employ varia¬tions: honey, love, sugar. Waiting forthe swim break, I fidget. I walk to therefreshment stand and don’t buy any¬thing, I measure, in footsteps, the dis¬tance between two rusty metal gar¬bage cans. As a result I have sunburnsin strange places: the top of my head,my toes, my collarbone. I try to writesongs in the green notebook with yel¬low pages, but usually give up. I walkfar along to where the beach ends in awall of sharp grey rocks. I try to climbthe rocks but the hot, jagged stonescorches and jabs at my feet. I can seethe roof of a house above the rocksand I wonder who lives there. I’vealways wanted to live in a house bythe beach; I can match my goals to thestrange faces. I never make it to thetop; maybe by the end of the summer.I stop halfway at a rock which hasenough width for a seat. OccasionallyI carry the stub of a joint in the bot¬tom of my bikini and smoke it here,but not too often. Dana’s afraid I’m adrug addict and being stoned in thesun makes me fall asleep.Dana teaches aerobic exercisesclasses at a health club on weekdayevenings. I want to ask her if she hasany serious goals in life, but I don’tknow how to put the question tactful¬ly. She was a phys ed major in college.She minored in psychology. She thinksshe understands people. We hardlytalk to each other while we’re sun¬bathing. I have elaborate fantasiesabout men I haven’t met yet: a pho¬tographer named Steve, a guitaristnamed Lenny, a race car drivernamed Skip. They are all in love withme and I must choose among them.Dana sings along to the songs on theradio. She carries a small radio withher to the beach that has suntan oil allover it and gets lousy reception. Shekeeps it close to her ear so she canhear it and I can’t. Dana has a goodvoice, but she only sings the back¬ground vocals. If the song says,“Baby, I love you...” Dana sings, “Sh-boom, sh-boom, yeah, yeah, I reallylove you...” Dana has the backgroundvocals of all the songs on the radiomemorized. I suspect this is becauseshe grew up in the era with all the girlgroups: the Chiffons, trio Shirelles,Martha Reeve and the Vandellas;girls were doo-wopping all over theplace then.It is four weeks into the summernow, and I do not know Dana any bet¬ter. Every day we sweat together. Wehave the same hands—small withsharp bones and long fingers—and,before thfe operation, the same bul¬bous nose. Her habits, down to themost minute detail are imprinted Inmy mind. But when I look at her lyingnext to me on the blanket, her leftelbow lightly touchipg my right, Ithink she’s a monster.The lifeguard with the moustache isin love with Dana. The scooper at Bas¬kin Robbins is in love with Dana. Theattendant at the toll both we passthrough on the way to the beach is inlove with Dana. The man who sellssodas from the cooler on his back is inlove with Dana. The man sunbathingto our right on a skinny blue towelthat’s too short for his legs is in lovewith Dana. Dana sings along to thestatic on the radio and sees none ofthem.Last night The Lad ^s played at an¬other birthday party. During the fina¬le, “Rock and Roll Women” (Rock andRoll Woman/Watch out! She’s a-com-ing for you...”), I had a two minuteguitar solo. I felt like I was spinningon a star, I felt the whole universewas kneeling at my feet; then Iopened my eyes and saw a bunch ofgiggly girls. All the people I’ve everwanted to be in life were men. BruceSpringsteen, James Dean, HerculePoirot, Malcolm X. I’d look for femaleheroes but I couldn’t find them. I thinkof all the young girls—wonderful girlswith long braided hair and blue bows;with scrubbed ears and freshlybrushed teeth; with horn-rimmedglasses, acne and braces—sittingalone at night in their bedrooms, look¬ing for heroes and worshipping men.The back of my legs and calves burnagainst the sun-baked vinyl seat inDana’s car. Dana’s too chintzy to buya model with an air conditioner. I amallowed to push open the windowshaped like a right triangle, but notthe big roll-down window by my head.Too much air ties in and blows Dana’shair around while she’s driving. Atfirst my cheese sandwiches melted inthe tin foil because the car was so hot.Then I stopped bringing sandwichesbecause Dana made me feel like a pig.She never brings lunch to the beach.She has a crazy diet in which she onlyeats five dinners and two breakfastsa week. When she eats it’s somethingnutritious, cottage cheese andpeaches, not Kraft American cheeseslices on Wonder bread. Dana makespeople feel ashamed to be hungry.Once she brought her friend Janet tothe beach with us. Janet’s whole bodywas whiter than my white bikini lines.When Dana and I went into the water,Janet stayed at the blanket with ayellow towel draped over her legs.After the swim, Dana turned to me,smiling, and whispered, “She just atea sandwich. You can tell by thecrumbs.”Dana and I take the car to the carwash—Krazy Car Wash.

She’s such a kid at these mo¬ments-! feel ages older than her andworld-weary. We left the beach earlytoday because of rain. “I think I seethe sun, I think I see the sun,” she saidamidst the downpour. This happensall the time. If it’s cloudy when wewake up in the morning, one of us willtelephone the weather recording tosee if there’s a chance things will clearup. If it gets cloudy while we’re at thebeach, Dana will examine the cloudsfranticaly for a glimmer of sun. Shethings she’s intuitive about theweather; sometimes she gets ‘‘a feel¬ing” that the sky will clear evenwhen, as today, it plainly won’t. Shegets such a sad look on her face that Istay marooned under the drenchedblanket until she finally—after a longwhile—faces the facts. Dana doesn’tthink she’s pretty without a tan. If shemisses one day, a little ugliness willcreep back in.Dana must acknowledge me. Shecan’t sh-boom all day. It’s obvious shethinks I’m a child not worth talking toseriously. Then again, maybe Danadoesn’t know how to talk seriously. Iasked her why she married Bill in thefirst place; it didn’t seem to me thatshe was ever in love with him. Shesaid, “I don’t know. I guess I wasn’tthinking.” Dana was married for sixyears; could she not have been think¬ing for six years? I could think of bet¬ter answers: “I was twenty-two, I wasscared and I didn’t know any better”;“I wanted to get out of the house andmarriage seemed like the easiestway”; “I was afraid I’d never meetanyone else who’d care for me.”There are other questions I want toask her, but I don’t: "What’s with youand this new Bill?”; "Have you everhad multiple orgasms?” Dana has noinsight about herself. She never asksme anything, or she does, but thewhat do you ask a fifteen year oldtype questions. She never asks thequestions I’d ask myself: "What doyou think of the world?” “So, are youdating any boys?” Dana tells me howto wax my legs so it won’t leave stu¬bble.Mountain and I have been thinkingof forming our own band. Cyndi’sbeen acting too bossy lately. Now shewants a bigger cut of the profits, oncewe get some, since she owns the base¬ment and the amplifiers. Mountainand I spent last night on her frontporch trying to think of names for ourgroup. My legs were sticky becauseI’d spilled a glass of lemonade onthem. “Mountain and Mary”, "Maryand Mountain”, "Balthazar”, and"Twisted Dagger” were the ones wecame up with. Nothing stupid like TheElectric Ladies—that was Cyndi’sidea. Mountain wants to be a rockstar. If not a rock star, then a nurse.I’d like to be a rock star part-time anda humanitarian the rest of the time.• • •I lose her one day. She has swum outso far, far beyond the other swim¬mers, that I can’t see her anymore. Istart to worry—she’s been gone long,longer than twelve minutes. I can’teven see the dixie cup anymore. Thelifeguard is brushing sand off his feetand he has an earplug from a radio inher ear. I start to dog paddle outthere. My fingers turn blue from thecold and I swallow what feels like agallon of salt water. I have just seenJaws 2 and I have a vision of Dana’schewed-up, bloody thigh bobbing upand down on a wave. Dana flies up infront of me. She’s been practicing herunderwater stroke. “I thought youwere dead,” I say, treading waterspastically. She laughs and pats meon the head. "I’m a good swimmer.Why would you think that?”e e eI bring my pocket instamatic cam¬era to the beach and take pictures: ofa fat man in black swimming trucks, ofthe lifeguard’s left arm, of some fliesgathered on a Dunkin Donuts box. Itake shots of Dana’s greased bodyfrom different angles, but when shenotices what I’m doing, she stops sing¬ing, sits up and covers her face withher hands. She’s been exposed; nowthe whole world will see the sweatand freckles. What an effort it mustbe for her, having to smile all the timeand worry about the rain. I try toimagine her differently, as someonewho wouldn’t mind having ugly pic¬tures of herself tucked away in some¬one’s photo album. I could admire herthen; I could throw away the blackjeans I stole from Bruce Springsteenand work on copying her style. I’d imi¬tate the way her fingers fly when shetells stories, the way her hips sway,the way her hair blows when it’swindy.When grandfather held up his handsI was always listeningto grandfather stonesof grasshopper pastries,and tea on the Euphratieswith turbaned sheikswhose hand claps changedthe tiaes and the time —I was sure he said,and watched how he turnedhis own handslike leavesto the sun.My father saidhe used to build thingslike bridges, and dams,and the barn out backwhere the chickens used to live,and the glass house where grandmother grewflowers like bells I listened to hear,petals whose colors I couldn’t name,flowers with tongues so long and thinI was sure they came to taste mein my sleep.Dark in the dark.The tapestry bed was sandlewood sweet.In the window an iron womanfanned her arms like wings.Enamel owls, gold and red,and gilded peacocks with jeweled eyeskept watch from the topof the upright piano.Dark in the darkof grandfather,listenings and lecturings,and stories with meaningsI didn’t know,but thought he’d beenin India with the elephants,where he learned to build his riddles *taking tea with the sheikswhose hand clapschanged —the paths of the stars,I was sure he said,and thought I knewwhy he spoke so slowand held his handsso still.tricks of the tradeWalk like a six-gun,the comfort ofsteel greymud on the cuffof your jeans,button-down,like a man,like something real,Walk like you knowthe historyof things:the scar in the bark,the bend in the path.Walk like you’re onto the trailof somethingsecret,something real.Carry your hands like they knowhow to findthe flame in the wood,the water in sand.Walk like you’d shootthrough the eyeof the eagleon a high flying coin,flash in the sun,and you’re gone.—Elizabeth Barnes ClaytonThe Chicago Literary Review, Friday September 28, 1984—19The Carriage Houseby Mary BurtGrandma’s skin looked like that ofa wrinkled apple, mottled by brownspots. The porch to her house sagged;tufts of grass grew from cracks in thesidewalk: it was that kind of neigh¬borhood. All the houses were whiteand old people rocked on the frontporches. In the backs of the houseswere the carriage houses: peoplecould remember the time of horses.Grandma taught me songs, oneabout a frog who went courting, andanother one about a fox who went outhunting on a moonlit night. Her voicewas scratchy, like the jazz Daddyplayed on the record player.Her house swam in preservatives.Outside, whiffs of brine from thepickle factory peppered my nostrils.It was especially strong out back, bythe carriage house. Inside, moth ballsdanced out of closets, where thickwoolen clothing hung on hooks, someof it perhaps worn by my father whenhe drove the ice cart. I felt sorry forwhoever had to wear the clothes. Thehouse also smelled of mildew, asthough it had been too long closedTeddy had followed me, withSharon right behind him, trying tokeep up. I climbed the stairs and hidjust beyond the corner of the landing.A chink in the wall let in sunlight: goldflashed among my brother's curls. Hetugged at the lid of a trunk while mysister just stood there, banging herarms against her sides. Teddy openedthe trunk, but there were only a fewrags in it. I could smell the moth ballseven from my perch. Teddy next triedand left damp.Grandfather, a farmer, had made asideline of chipping away at the ice ona lake near their farm during thewinter months. When his boys werebig enough, they inherited the job oftaking it from the lake and hauling itto a cave he had carved out in the hill¬side. This heart of ice melted bit bybit as the warmth from the fieldsseeped down to it, but enough re¬mained throughout the summer to de¬liver in town. Father had a regularroute — like a paper route — andevery morning housewives waitedfor him to heave the blocks of ice intotheir ice boxes. Grandfather and hisfamily moved into town themselveswhen the farm gave out. Grandfatherdied soon afterwards.Grandma kept a black Bible openon the hall table. The edges of itspages were gilded. The clock over thebuffet struck and I heard it from up¬stairs. I was just dusting off Grand¬ma’s shepherdess. Grandma was atchurch. The girl had pink lips thatcurved up in a grimace. Father’stread on the stairs was hollow andregular, like the chimes from theclock. I dropped the girl, and she shat¬tered into a hundred fragments. Ipicked up a piece of her that used tobe part of her head. She was stillsmiling at me.I sensed Granfather’s presence inthe carriage house, where he hadkept his horses before he bought thefamily’s first coupe. Now it lay un¬used, its windows boarded up. I en¬tered through a sliding door rusty onits hinges, so that pushing it back re¬quired a coiling inward before exert¬ing all the strength I possessed.I stood for a moment, the door tothe carriage house halfway open, andsmelled the odor of pickles that blewin over the corn field. Grandma’shouse, like the pickle factory, lay onthe edge of town. Stalks of cornmoved about in the sunshine. Insidethe carriage house were the belong¬ings of the vanished animals: a scrapof bridle, a trough, a bucket with nobottom.the stairs, but they were too steep forhim.Through a gap left by the boardsover the top story window I sawGrandma walking across the backyard to call us for lunch. The grassbrushed against her ankles andreached toward the hem of her skirt.She shooed away a bee. ihe yard wasfull of bees, but they never stung.Grandma sat in the living room,fingers draped by string. My fatherhad put a Louis Armstrong piece onthe record player. A scratch in the re¬cord made it sound every few secondsas though someone had cracked opena fan in church. I wondered if LouisArmstrong looked like Grandma:they sounded alike.‘‘Look at my hands, Margaret!” Shespread wide her palms, on which I hadoften felt the calluses, tiny and hardas bee stings. She had pulled stringapart into the form of a»box, throughwhich diagonal threads cut in a pat¬tern that looked like illustrations ingeometry books. She told me whereto pinch the strands, and I took up thecat’s cradle, but it collapsed in myhands.The floor of the living room, towhich we children had been relegatedbecause of Grandma’s collection ofporcelain in the bedrooms, grated onmy bones through the carpet. I sat up,rubbed my buttocks, and smoothedout the quilt over which my beddinghad been thrown. I stared at the nightlight at the foot of the stairs. Shad¬ows danced along the wail. In one ofthe rooms upstairs, an open windowbanged shut. Something rustled out inthe kitchen. I got up to go to thebathroom.I imagined the carriage house, out¬side, draped in moonlight like a frost¬ed cake, its blind windows sparklinglike real eyes.The back door was latched, but un¬locked easily. The lock on the stormdoor was another matter. It tookmuch twisting and turning before Imanaged to open it.The carriage house seemed to stareat me as I approached. The dew spar¬kled underfoot and soaked my feetand the edges of my nightgown. Acrunching noise and a sensation ofstickiness made me realize I hadstepped on a snail. I began to havetrouble breathing. I turned and ran.I banged the storm door withoutthinking. A tall figure moved aDOut inthe kitchen, his back to me. It was myfather, busy in front of the open re¬frigerator. He was wearing only pa¬jama bottoms. He had an open bottleof milk in his hand, and he closed theice box door so quickly that some ofthe milk spilled onto the floor. A dropof it touched my cheek; it felt cool.Without the ghostly light spilling outfrom the refrigerator, the room be¬came dark.‘‘is that you, Alice?” my fatherwhispered. His hand groped for thelight switch. He had mistaken me formy mother. Our eyes adjusted to themoonlight streaming in through thekitchen window, and he saw that theother person was me. I was staring atthe hair on his chest. In this light itlooked as though some small animalwere clinging to him. Did my motherenjoy touching it, I wondered?‘‘Go to bed, Margaret,” he said. Hisvoice was harsh. ‘We’re getting upearly in the morning.”I walked through the dining roomand banged into one of the chairs. Thefloor didn’t seem so hard anymore: Ifell asleep the instant I found my pal¬let. My sleep, it seemed, lasted mereseconds before my father shook meawake. Only a slight gray color, fan¬ning out from the windows, indicateddawn was near. From the kitchencame the smell of bacon. Grandmawas up already. ;I slept again as soon as I was set¬tled in the back seat of the car. Idreamed about the carriage house inthe moonlight. Its windows were nolonger blind. A horse looked out ofone of them: a white horse. I wantedto pet it, but the kitchen door waslocked and I couldn’t go outside.A screen door slammed. We werehome.

Their sad intensity mark a finalembrace of the historic rumors, harshsounds, and brilliant colors of Chile.Neruda addresses not only the peopleand the land that steered his passagethrough life, but that life itself.The poem's 433 verses were writtenover the course of two days in 1969. butits symbolic brackets are the comingand going of the light of a single day.There is a simultaneity of meani ng i n allNeruda's images, so the opening lines‘‘Today is that day. the day that carried/a desperate light that since has died,refer to the act of creation, himself be-ing read after his death, and the birth ofhis country. To begin wrth a line thatpresupposes a looking back on whatwill occur in this poem in particular,and his life in general is extremelybold. Neruda has a deceptive surfacesimplicity in what he expresses, like anawkward child with bad grammar he an¬nounces his ideas so baldly that the ef¬fort behind them is often overlooked.The next sections evoke memories ofthe poet s childhood and the languageof the Arancanian Indians, who cededthe town of Temuco. where Neruda wasraised, to the Chilean government in1881. Each section begins with a placename taken from the indomitable war¬riors. and spins out both a historicaland linguistic tale of take over andcultivation. There is a vast layer of root-bound symbolism at work here. Nerudais mining a vein that the progress of hiscountry is plowing under. Thoughlinguistic references to the Mapuchelanguage of the indians are lost intranslation, invocations of the OsornoVolcano and the Aysen waterfall, bothpart of the Mapuche symbology for crea¬tion. remain powerful. “The wild Aysenplunges splitting/ with its torrentialwhiteness a rock/ into two speckledbreasts" he writes, remembering “themoon/ reflected on the rotten boards ofLoncoche./ the smell of the poormarketplace, of dried clams."Only after this rhythmically jubilantlist does the poet step back and look athi mself as a product of hi s past. He says"I carried in my clothes/ the sadness ofthe tram *hat carried me/ across theprovinces one by one." There is a feel¬ing of summing up. a weary sense thatwhat he has been reproducing frommemory, reinacting in this poem, willfade as his life fades. The last sectionsof the book want to affirm, as Whitmandoes at the end of "Song of Myself,that the poet will live on in his worksand that the reader should “look for meunder your boot-soles.” But as withWhitman, we sense Neruda s too-zealous fervor, he wants to believe. Hisadage “Honor the stone that was lostis quietly desperate, it belies the strug¬gle of the man to stand by hismetaphysical principles.In one part, as this metaphorical daycloses in on the poet, he writes that“days aren't discarded or collectedthey are bees / that burned withsweetness or maddened/ the sting: thestruggle continues./ the journeys goand come between honey and pain.The beauty of this book is that it showsa masterful craftsman wrestlmg with thestruggle for child-like purity.

His originality, a mainfiber of this thematic tapestry, is elo¬quently presented throughout thebook.Goldbarth’s language rises withsimplicity to create many complex ex¬pressions of the familiar. He bringsan unusual view to many unexpectedsubjects:...I think that I’m a carrying-casefor something — because it’sdark side, becausethere are these breathing holesover the surface...I guess I'm talking about themind. It sleeps around.It spends a third of its time un¬faithfulto the body.His enthusiasm for the everydaymechanisms of life are felt in eachpoem.The poet effortlessly reconstructslife and human experiences from thebanal to the profound. His poem “StillLives’’ is a deliciously descriptive listof what could be a still life on canvas.The poem is so visual that it is a men¬tal painting; yet it incorporates thehumor and imagination of the artistso completely that it would only di¬minish its impact if it were limited tothat form.This grapefruit is open for busi¬ness: a pink motel of tissueyrooms......There’s a dirty glove that re¬quires a stepaway to become a mallard...What is it about this lustrewareladle of dijon mustardfolding the light so it looks likeVan Gogh’s ear...How many medals for valor andsavagery might bethese beads of water on an egg¬plant...Goldbarth often presupposes that thereader is starved for poetic imageryand has, therefore, provided a feast.“The wind at my body is wild/animalslicking for salt. I’ve set a/sheet of gal¬leys down and come outside forthese/rough tongues!”Goldbarth’s poems are drawn froma wealth of information, and success¬fully interweave an understanding ofhistory, religion, science and the arts.The poet’s voice is equally comfort¬able expressing childhood expecta¬tions and contemplating old age. Hecreatively finds believable juxtaposi¬tions of humor and sadness:If it happened, she’d look at himwhistle that way while shaving,in partto tighten the skin for the razor,but also justfrom cockamamie happiness, andfrom the same she’d cry inher handsand look like a headless womangoing bowling.It is necessary to note, however,that while the neatness and grace ofGoldbarth’s poetic metaphors can beappropriate, they can be over¬worked.The poem “Semiotics/TheDoctor’s Doll” completes a metaphorwithout cheapening it:A small rock braids white waterin blue water. This is whyI think of the stream as a womanlying face down — that lazypigtail, and the little curveof a waist later on......So I think of a streamas a long blue human — yes,with ascrap of ivory flotsam lodged ina bend, somedoll of what’s wrong. Tonight'ssymbology says a stream’s apersonso a person's in a bed. My fa¬therweeps and weeps till dawn, inthe hospital linens.But at other times originality for itsown sake can, and does, become trite.Goldbarth will sometimes push theimagery too far, arriving at an obvi¬ous and somewhat patronizing conclu¬sion of thought....No, the whores don’t swivelslightlytowards a passing trick likeflowerstoward the sun, it isn’t a bit likethat......the whorescurve slightly, like plastic spoonsbeing worked in a hardeningcheese dip.Because of the density of ideas insome poems, Goldbarth repeatsphrases such as “what is it that...?” in“Still Lives” or “there is this...theseare the...” etc., as breathing spacesfor the reader. These cliched modernfillers are sprinkled inconspicuouslythroughout this collection yet addnothing to the poems’ effectiveness.Despite these few lapses, the humorand compassion Goldbarth gives tohis unique version of life has createda “mosaic of the indispensable” —which we weren’t aware we couldn’tdo without until we had read them.-BERBloods —An Oral History of the Viet¬nam War by Black VeteransBy Wallace TerryRandom House, 1984311 pp., $13.95During the Vietnam War, manyblack soldiers called themselvesBloods — a shortened version of“blood brothers” — to differentiatethemselves from white GIs. WallaceTerry, a Time correspondent in Viet¬nam from 1967 to 1969, has usedBloods as the title of a collection offirst-person narratives he gatheredfrom a diverse group of twenty blackVietnam veterans.By working with a wide variety ofblack servicemen — commissionedand non-commissioned officers, draf¬tees and enlisted men, amputees andPOWs — and by using the veterans’own words, Terry is able to illustratehow profoundly the war affected hissubjects’ lives. Most often, the vetsdescribe their greatest changes asthose of political and racial aware¬ness. Many of Terry’s subjects charac¬terize their childhood families aspoor; many correlate their impo¬verished beginnings with a low levelof political savvy when they werefirst confronted with the war. Some ofthese men enlisted because they be¬lieved they would earn more thanthey would have in private enter¬prise; others looked at the services asthe only way to learn a skill. Andothers joined because they believedthey must support the U.S. govern¬ment’s stance that it must fight com¬munism in Southeast Asia in order tosafeguard the democratic govern¬ment of South Vietnam.A disproportionate number of blacksoldiers were placed in combat posi¬tions due to racism in the military. Un¬fortunately, this is not startling news.What is startling is to read of the ex¬tent of institutional discriminationthat the military condoned by allow¬ing it to exist: In 1965, up to 60% ofmen at the front were black. In theiraccounts, the Bloods tell of discrimina¬tion over assignments, decorations,and promotions.By 1967-68, the Bloods had hadenough. Terry cites this two-yearperiod as a watershed in the attitudeof many soldiers — especially blacksoldiers — to the U.S presence inVietnam. In the Bloods’ narratives,they recall how the former gung ho at¬titude to the war changed to one ofpervasive cynicism. The cumulativeeffect of the Harlem riot in 1964, theWatts riot of 1965, the Detroit andNewark riots of 1967, the civil rightsmovement, the anti-war movement,and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’smurder was enormous. These eventsaccentuated the irony of his role inVietnam for the Blood: he was beingtold by his government that he mustsacrifice his life to safeguard aforeign people’s democracy while hisown constitutional rights were beingabused in the States, while the worthof his presence in the war was reject¬ed by the anti-war movement, andwhile white soldiers harassed himwith such symbols as burning crossesand the Confederate flag.Not surprisingly, black militancy in¬creased during and after 1967-68,leading to more frequent clashes be¬tween the Bloods and military author¬ity. In a few of the veterans’ narra¬tives, this more militant tone is verymuch alive. In others, their militancyhas turned by now into a bitter atti¬tude toward the U.S. government andtoward American society as a whole.Not only do these men remember theiniquities they suffered while in com¬bat; they also feel abandoned and un¬appreciated by society in their cur¬rent status as veterans. They tell oftheir struggles to find jobs, to func¬tion as disabled men, and to suppresstheir horrendous dreams and flash¬backs.It is the Blood’s descriptions of thewar events that spawned their haunt¬ing dreams and memories that are themost forceful passages in the narra¬tives. The immediacy of the first-per¬son narrative form dramatizes theshock of initial combat, the revulsionof killing, the mutilation of bodies,and the waste of life and resources.All combine to create a powerful tes¬tament against war. Ultimately,Terry’s message of racial injustice toAmerican black veterans is supersed¬ed by that of the universal theme ofthe brutality of war. Effective in con¬veying both themes, Terry’s book isan important one on Vietnam and onmodern war.Books in Review mBooks in ReviewBlack Dog, Red Dogby Stephan DobynsHolt, Rinehart, & Winston, 1984Robert Hass has been experimentingwith prose poems since completingPraise, one of the most daring andoriginal books of poetry to come out inrecent years, so it is no surprise that heselected Black Dog, Red Dog byStephan Dobyns as the National PoetrySeries winner. Dobyns tells stories in arambling prosy line that employs fewconventional poetic tricks; syntacticshifts, metaphors, dramatic shifts oftone, or the reek of self-referential con-fessionalism. Each poem confronts thereader with unrelenting images, often ofviolence, and with the voice of a truenarrator. The narrator’s voice changesfrom poem to poem but it is alwaysdirected outwards; Stephan Dobynswants desperately to be heard.What Dobyns lacks is a subtle ear forinflection and suppression, he patientlyspells out every detail like a bored direc¬tor of B-movie sequences. Each move¬ment is calculated for maximum shockvalue for his audience, and not for anypleasure Dobyns might derive from itscreation. The metaphor for his creativeprocess is revealed in the last poemswhere a Detroit reporter is sent out to in¬terview a kid who has found abutchered-up body. His editor tells himto “take a photographer along to getart.” Dobyns is admirably cancelling outthe delicately poetic, but he replaces itwith only banal cynicism.There are, however, two poems wherethe poet loosensthe stranglehold on hisown imagination enough to allow humorand compassion to emerge.“Cuidadores de Autos” takes the menin Santiago who charge money forguiding “you out of your parking placeas if/ this were your first time behind thewheel,” and uses them to ironicallycounterpoint the unremitting violencethat occurs on the streets. In the otherpoem, “General Matthei Drives HomeThrough Santiago,” the speed andnumber of escorts is explained by localrumors.It has been saidhis bowels were shot away in a dueland the poor generalmust spend his life rushing frombathroom t:> bathroom.It has been said that as the general ofthe air forcehe fears the earth as the wealthy fearthe poor.Or perhaps he is jealous of his wifeor has breadbaking in the oven or is accustomedto watchingthe American cartoons on the TVat seven-thirty.But the other generals of the Juntaalso rush homeat 100 kilometers per hour down thecrowded avenidas...So again the curtain of mysteryis lowered before us.Here the poet toys with us again, but weare allowed to travel with his imaginationas it twists and turns.If only this tone of intimacy and com¬passion was found more frequentlyperhaps Dobyns experiments in life’scruel ironies could be more easily ac¬cepted. Modern poetry is moving closerto prose, and at its best this writing cancombine precision and spontaneity, butit gains nothing if it loses the richness,subtlety, and primitive simplicity ofgood writing. Poems must be found inthe act of writing and the release of thesubconscious, not the act of watchingones audience. Stephan Dobyns, whohas a muscular voice and a richvocabulary, has yet to learn this.-DSShowdown and Other Storiesby Michael BrondoliNorth Point Press, 1984In July of 1983 Everglades City, a townof six-hundred inhabitants in Florida,was the scene of one of the largest mari¬juana smuggling busts in the U.S. Theseexpert boaters who knew the evergladesso well they could run drugs withoutship lights at night, their fathers havinglearned the tricks of the trade duringprohibition, believed that it was theirright after alligator hunting became il¬legal to make money any way theycould.

It’s like they think theyhave a grievance...One of them askedme why I was down there botheringthem.” It is insular societies thatoperate on two sets of laws — thosefrom the outside which are ignored, andthose on the inside which are tacitlycomplied with — that Michael Brondolisharply etches in his first collection ofshort stories, Showdown.Showdown's stories are filled withterse dialogue, local allusions, a cynicalsense of humor, and a vast range oftough characters. Like the inhabitants ofEverglade City Brondoli’s men andwomen behave according to their innerbeliefs which have little to do with theoutside world. Relationships are notseen as romantic or intellectual unionsbut as a mere coming-to-terms betweendifferent people. A rare instance of realcontact occurs at the end of the titlestory when the husband catches up withthe man who has been sleeping with hiswife in a motel room. They sit oppositeeach other, guns on their laps, talking inthe growing darkness. Communicationonly occurs under the mountingpressure of a narrative that threatens toexplode. But even here we sense thetension between the writer’s wish to liveinside his characters, and look down onthem. Brondoli has a modern existentialview of life, and yet he wants to tellstories in a traditional narrative manner— he desires resolutions. What this pro¬duces is a surfeit of carefully drawnfigures who do not seem to occupy thesame plane. The author so delights inhis asides that their relevance to thecentral plot is often moot. The broadlypainted backdrop becomes merecamouflage. Brondoli looks down on theinsular microcosm he is describing withaffection and humor, but also with pity¬ing condescension.He is like the easily identifiable nar¬cotic agent who drops in on the “OnlyBar” of the title story, or the one inEverglade City who is meant to hear thelocais as they sarcastically warn him;“Those Yankees all got to have so¬meone to take care of them. Show themaround so they don’t get lost, find thefish for them. Bait their hooks, clean thefish so they don’t get their hands dirty.But I’d never do that. I promise youthat.” Brondoli introduces us to a richseething local undercurrent that hedoes not inhabit. The dialogue is brittle,tense, and humorous, but it has nodepth. Brondoli writes best when he isdescribing outsiders like himself; as atthe end of Showdown when he switchesfrom the two men with their guns ontheir laps to the hard-headed womanwho has closed up the “Only Bar” aftertheir departure “and left in her van.”“More often than in her bed Carmineslept at turnoffs” he writes. “Not R.L.,not breath in winter, nothing filledthe van. Lying in the van made herfeel suited to lying in herself, for thiswas what her heart was like, a metalbox forty times the size of a humanbeing and there was no one to help.”The author’s lonely evocations ot peo¬ple caught battling for their individualityin harsh insular worlds are elegant andmoving. In these scenes a well of com¬passion opens up which is rarely seenelsewhere, and we feel Brondoli hastruely uncovered something in himselfas well as in us. —DSThe Ten Thousand Thingsby Maria DermoutRandom House, Vintage Books, 1984The trick, one poet told me, to reallygood writing, was to try to say as muchas one could with as few words as possi¬ble. Maria Dermout’s The Ten ThousandThings is a tremendous example of sucha writing style. Her prose is clear andquiet, her description is precise but notoverly detailed. A marvelous balance isstruck in this book, where little is saidand much conveyed, where one perfectimage manages to conjure up ten thou¬sand others. The reader is magicallymade aware of a host of sounds andsmells with only a few well chosenwords.Dermout teils the story of four genera¬tions of a family; how they lived and diedand dreamed on a small island in theMoluccas. Each member of the family ishaunted in some way by the past, eventhe very distant past. Each learns in adifferent way to live through or againstthat which has gone on before. Dermoutweaves this tale of the patterns andrepetitions of life with fascinating glimp¬ses of Indonesian culture andmythology.Although her setting and charactersare limited, (virtually all important actionin the book takes place in one smallgarden, for example) the issues dealtwith in this book are vast, universal.Destiny, fortune, myth, prophecy, andgood and evil are all touched upon withmarvelous depth and beautifuleconomy. Altogether, The Ten Thou¬sand Things is a lovely book, full of smallperfection.Family Dancing,Stories by David LeavittAlfred A. Knopf, 1984$13.95The recurring themes of David Lea¬vitt’s nine short stories is FamilyDancing are those of acceptance andadjustment. In each of the stories,parents and their children — usuallysurrounded or invaded by lovers, ex¬spouses or best friends — battle withold family myths and intricacies.Buried secrets, childhood desires andage-old resentments arise when fami¬lies recognize new realities: amother’s terminal illness, a son’s ho¬mosexuality, a devastating accident,the absolute end of a love or a mar¬riage.Where he succeeds, Leavitt careful¬ly, and often ingeniously, brings allthose concerned into a fragile andtangled domestic web. In “Aliens”, awoman visits her paralyzed husbandin a hospital and then comes home toher eleven year old daughter who be¬lieves she comes from another planet,Dandril, and was generated in hermother by an invisible ray. “I amyour origin”, the mother insists, butshe looks at her daughter, as she nowlooks at her husband, as an “earthlyshell”. This woman, like many of themothers in Family Dancing, has seenhow “easily apocalypse can happen”.But in a haunting and moving ending,she also shows that “in my own littleways, I too, have been keeping theearth in orbit.” And in “The Lost Cot¬tage”, a family attempts to maintainits rituals when they are obviously in¬appropriate and unenjoyable. Lea¬vitt calmly shows how all of themhave become spectators on their lifetogether, including a distraughtmother who demands that the sym¬bols of family still hold substance.In the better stories of the collec¬tion — “Aliens”, “The Lost Cottage”,“Counting Months” and “Danny inTransit” — Leavitt demonstrates con¬trol and empathy which he loses instories such as “Dedicated”, “Territo¬ry” and in the title story. In these,some of the important characters aresimply characatures which can annoythe reader. They appear as compila¬tions of distinctive types, it is asthough the author wants to give themany affectation or attitude that theycan conceivably have. Many of theyoung people in the less accomplishedstories are bitchy or ridiculous. Buthere, when Leavitt aims to describeinanity or bathos, he barely givesthese characters earthly shells inwhich they can be vacuous, and thenuance and effect of the story is vio¬lated by his trite, and rather trendy,descriptions.Even in the stories where Leavitt’scharacterization is unrefined, his lan¬guage is nonetheless lively and hisirony and intelligence usually engagethe reader. His work which producesmore than clever conversation andobservation also hints at Leavitt’s po¬tential to write stories which achievethe resonance of the small, but stun¬ning, apocalypses with which he is sointrigued. _LRA Gathering of Old Men,by Ernest GainesVintage Books, 1984Paperback, $3.95“No, Sheriff, you don’t see. Youdon’t even know what I don’t see,” anold black man tells a white Louisianasheriff. “Ask any of them, all of themwhat they don’t see no more.” Thislatest novel by Ernest J. Gaines, theauthor of The Autobiography of MissJane Pittman, takes place one sum¬mer day on a Louisiana sugarcaneplantation in the 1970’s. Abouttwenty old black men decide, much totheir own surprise, to see things dif¬ferently than they have for genera¬tions. By the end of his compellingnovel, their decision has changed anentire community.The men’s gathering is an impromp¬tu and preposterous cover-up for amurder: a Cajun farmer — the son of anotorious lyncher, Fix Boutan — hasbeen shot by one of them. When thesheriff arrives, each man has a shot¬gun and an empty bullet shell, eachclaims to have killed the Cajun andeach man is willing to die for themurder. Furthermore, every one ofthem has had a lifetime of sufferingwhich calls for even more revenge. Asthey wait for Fix’s mob to appear,they recall the many times they havestood passive but furious in the faceof Southern justice. As they re¬member the violence and insanity ofwhat they have been seeing foryears, each man gains more pride andfeels new strength. Meanwhile, theBoutan family is beginning to changeon its own. The dead man’s brother,an All-American football player atLSU, quietly confronts his family withthe shame and stupidity of its racism.By the time the mob and the old menmeet, the absurdity of the old waysand the old logic, of both sides, ispoignantly clear.Gaines is not afraid to moralize, buthis story of good versus bad is re¬freshingly honest. The weight of thisimportant work is overwhelminglysad, but Gaines maintains it through¬out the novel with a humor that is dis¬tinctively Southern and wholly enjoy¬able. Gaines has an originalunderstanding of hatred and adver¬sity. His ability to give to many dif¬ferent and irrational lives a seriousvoice and convincing history makesthis work a significant achievement.-LRBooks in22—The Chicago Literary Review, Friday September 28, 1984*The Standard BinderSpecifications:• CONSTRUCTION: Flat back, exposed rivets,suede vinyl electronically sealed overheavy board, rigid covers, Resist-tear' hinge.• SHEET LIFTERS: Included in1V2 and larger capacities.• INTERIOR POCKETS:Horizontal pockets insidefront and back covers included in all sizes.• RING METALS: All sizes feature quality, doublebooster ring metals with openingand closing triggers.SUGGESTEDSPECIALRETAIL PRICEPRICEK311-101” BINDER3.952.89K311-1511/2” BINDER6.254.95K311-202” BINDER7.755.99The University of Chicago BookstoreStationery Department • 2nd floor970 E. 58th St.■■■■n962-8729 • IBX 5-4103VISA’MasterCard| ;* | ;;; ,}0,laPoWEll 5 BOOI4STORE1501 E. 57tU Street955-77809 a.m. -11 p.m.7 days a weekNot just 200,000 scholarly andacademic books (philosophy,ancient history, anthropology,literary criticism) — but alsoscience fiction, mystery, occult,cookbooks, and much, muchmore.U.S. Department of TransportationDRINKING AND DRIVINGCAN KILL A FRIENDSHIPA ^ A tDW ^ w^ ^^^ A ^w$ $ $ $^AA .n >nA p^ AP ^ ^A A «n •jJi$yp ^ ^ ^ ^A ^ A ^ J|A ^ A ^ Jl$u^ C* Q*iP A A A^ ^ ^ ^ ^$PA ^ A ^|pA Jn >n ^A W W Ip ^ ^ Ip ^ ^ y* ^ y* yk ^ ^ p Ip ^ ^yi yl y| y^ yl yl yi y| y^l yjl y^ yp y^ 2J^ y^ y^ y^ y^ iyj| dpi yl ^9 y| yf y| y^ y|| |9$m yk F y^ flfc tjk ^ y^ yji P F ^ y^ ^ C* yj ^ fy y y y y y* yj y y y y y y y y yyl A y^ y| y| y^ y^ yj y^ y^ y| yh A y^ y^ A y| u|| y| y| yO 2j^ y^ 2} up yj| yQf yl yl y^ u dpi y^ y| AA A A A ^ 1• A ^ y^^TooporWnM \, YxO* 9°°^ a me^ber voyJr \ 4 t 4’ „* CorP’t n finance v \$ $ $.^v/estmect ^ d ne\p " entrepre \'°v ;n u an>J are «> an\ \rf* ^Se CBOt-''/0U d, and * \l.Q badness. lS a trades \do- prwate c"f ^nQ c^®f V $OBOE® po<e« .s \'™>Ker * , gfaduate |^cutwe \$a ^ ,en\ors a^d0empseV"£ t cofP-idoafinQ ® John J- ° \nvesfinec® Lou\d V^e 'u t cotP •V chaAK>n 'n'l®rvSon BW<J:A41 'Nesl ^0,5 606y y y y y ffl y^ y|y^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^^ ^ ^ ^iw .A yt yfc ^3 |D$rfh d* ty- y y ffljj*yyyyyyyyyy$$$$$$$$$$$$lf^ th y ty |^2jJ| yl dpi 2)1 2^ 2) y^^P| tf— ty l|^2jj* 2)1 y3 ^ 2|f yS 27 21’ yPlJ $ J ^$#p u* iU*dJI ^3:’ ^3 |^p' 2* .^Tp$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$The Chicago Literary Review, Friday September 28, 1984—23INTERNATIONAL HOUSEOF CHICAGOOnce again, International House extends a warm welcome tothe students, faculty and staff of the University of Chicago.
