Since 1980, audienceattendance has increased 400percent and the theater, cur¬rently running English play¬wright Christopher Hampton’s. The Philanthropist,plays to a full house evervnight.Court has become so suc¬cessful that next year playswill run a full extra week, toextend play runs to fiveweeks, plus preview week.Financially Court has alsodone well. More than 29 per¬cent of Court’s profit comesfrom ticket sales alone. An¬other 6.5 percent comes fromsubscribers, and the rest isfrom donations, mostly fromthe University of Chicago.Court receives about 5.5 per¬cent of their income from'Corporation grants from suchcompanies as Atlantic Rich¬field, Illinois Bell, InlandSteel Mobil Oil and Borg-Warner, to name a few.Despite a limited amount ofmoney spent on advertising,Court has managed to draw inlarge crowds from all over.Court currently advertises onWFMT, in the Tribune ArtsSection and puts postersaround the Hyde Park Com¬munity. Court Theater hasalways been professional, buttheir new 250-seating capaci¬ty theater has allowed themto build a stronger reputationin the Chicago Area. Courthas received praise from mayleading Chicago critics, andbeen cited for over 20 JeffAwards.Most of the actors that ap¬pear in Court’s plays havebeen in many other prod¬uctions, and some have ap¬peared in plays at Court pre¬viously. Court has a tendencyto invite familiar actors andactresses back. In The Phi¬lanthropist alone. Joe Lauck,as Donald, Ann Dowd asCelia, and Janet Carr as Lizhave all appeared before inCourt productions. SusanDafoe, who directed lastyear’s Hay Fever, and HeddaGabler. appears as Aramin-ta. Many of the plays in Court’s repertoire have re¬ceived recognition.Nicholas Rudall, director ofThe Philanthropist and artis¬tic director at court since1971, has directed many playsat Court in the past, as well asappearing in several roleshimself, at Court and else¬where. He received Jeff cita¬tions for his direction of She•,Stoops to Conquer and a JeffAward for best supportingactor in Juno and the Payco.Court relies heavily on con¬sistent support from corpora¬tions. Subscriber’s make upmost of their audience, al¬though recently their audi¬ences have been comprised ofnon-subscribers too.Rudall chose to run TheMisanthrope, by Molierealong side The Philanthro¬pist, due to the similarities ofcontent. Hampton based hisplay heavily on The Misan¬thrope. Court described ThePhilanthropist as a “contem¬porary reflection of Moliere’sclassic satire.”Hampton made his debut inthe literary world with hisfirst play, When Did You LastSee My Mother? in 1966 at theRoyal Court Theater in Eng¬land. Hampton hopes to finishhis current work, Death of anOptimist, next year. Thiswork deals with “the idea ofhappiness, what it is, what itinvolves.” He deals with ab¬stract ideas, but Hamptoncomments, in his interviewwith Rudall, “I suppose themore general approach of mycontemporaries was to dealwith very personal concernsin a spiritually autobiographi¬cal way. . . my feeling wasthat if you describe some¬thing accurately enough, thelessons will be self-evident,and that the wish to changethe conditions described inthe play will be as strong ifnot stronger than if you issueinstructions to the audience,in this way, or in that.”Unlike many other Chicagotheaters. Court runs “theclassics” from Sophocles andShakespeare, alongside con¬temporary pieces. Court alsoholds lecture series and spe¬cial programs with their reg¬ular seasonal runs. They holdlectures at the Chicago PublicLibrary Cultural Center ana the Hyde Park Jewish Com¬munity Center Universityprofessors speak frequentlyeach season, and the theateralso holds preview discus¬sions during which the audi¬ence is invited to commentafter each performance andoffer opinions.

What was thereason for all the commotion?It appears that a groupassociated with the LyndonLaRouche political networkwas protesting the alleged in¬volvement of several U of Cprofessors in the promotion ofeuthanasia and genocide.Without warning, an old,light green Ford sedan equip¬ped with a very loud PAsystem appeared on campusat about 9:30 a.m. Mondaymorning. For the next hourand a half, the loudspeakervehicle drove around theneighborhood in the generalarea of the Quads.It was very difficult tomake out exactly what theprotesters were saying. Ap¬parently, the occupants of thevehicle were urging everyoneto attend a rally and a pressconference at 11 a.m in theUniversity Medical Center toprotest euthanasia. One stu¬dent reported that the pro¬testers said euthanasia wasbeing practiced at theMedical Center. Another stu¬dent said he heard the groupsay several professors wereNazis.Michael Cermak, a third-year biology major, said heheard that a big protest wasgoing to happen at 11 a.m. infront of the Brain ResearchCenter at 58th and Ellis. Heasserted that he went toobserve what he thoughtwould be an exciting protestbecause this is a dull piace.” By Julie WeissmanThe newly revised “Key toTranscript of Academic Re¬cords, ” a booklet which theregistrar sends out to explainstudent’s transcripts, doesnot mention hat the Universi¬ty has recently switched overto plus/minus grading, butmerely lists the value of eachgrade using the plus/minussystem. Within a week to tendays, said Registrar MaxineSullivan, “we will have comeup with the best possible wayto solve this problem.”In the meantime, she urgesstudents who wish to havetheir transcripts sent out torequest a letter from the reg¬istrar’s office which explainsthe changeover.Originally, according toSullivan, no one in the admin¬istration thought that a state¬ment concerning the switch toplus/minus grading would benecessary. However, recentlystudents applying to graduateschools worried that withoutexplanation of the gradechange, schools would thinkthat they had been earningB’s when they could havebeen getting B + ’s.After several students com¬plained, Sullivan along withDean of Students HermanSinaiko realized that thereshould be some type of expla¬nation on students’ tran¬scripts, mainly, according toSinaiko. to alleviate student“I thought,” he continued,“that the University hadalmost come to life for aminute. But as witheverything else, I was disillu¬sioned because I went toobserve the rally and nothinghappened.”Apparently, no studentsrallied to the protestors’cause; “no one was payingany attention to” the five toeight protesters in theUniversity Bookstore plaza,reported Cermak.What did the group do at therally? “There wasn’t any(rally),” related Cermak. “Itwas funny because theSPARK people came, too. Iguess they thought a lot ofpeople would come.” he said.(SPARK is a newspaperhanded out around campus bya Marxist-Leninist organiza¬tion of the same name.)The group wound up justcarrying posters, passing outpamphlets and newspapers,and soliciting signatures for a concern.Sinaiko, who sits on a grad¬uate school selection board,doubts whether including anexplanation of the chan¬geover on student's tran¬script will actually affect thedecision of any graduateschool looking at that tran¬script. He thinks that U of Cstudents, who tend to “exag¬gerate the significance ofvery marginal things.” areoften “crazy in this businessabout grades. The over¬whelming credentials are aBA from the U of C.” and let¬ters of recommendation fromfaculty, not an extra .10 gradepoints. He characterizes atranscript as a “flat, relative¬ly uninformative record.”Sinaiko also stressed, how¬ever, that the registrar“works hard to be fair, accu¬rate. and honest.” The over¬sight was in no way deliber¬ate or meant to hurtstudents.Sullivan said that the har¬dest part in correcting the“oversight” will be decidingwhose transcripts to includethe explanation with. For ex¬ample, it would make nosense to include it with afreshman's transcript.Whether we like it or not,we are now officiallyplus/minus, and. according toSinaiko, the entire contro¬versy will soon be forgottenby everyone.petition. Their politicalliterature identified the groupas the Schiller Institute.According to the literaturedistributed by the Schillergroup, four University pro¬fessors in the Committee onSocial Thought and one pro¬fessor emeritus in the Univer¬sity’s Economics departmentare somehow involved in“Nazi-like Right to Die”movements.A newspaper handed out bythe group asserted that theSchiller Institute was formedby Lyndon LaRouche’s wifein May of 1984. (See accompa¬nying story on LaRouche andhis associates.)According to DavidO'Leary, director of campussecurity, there were about tento twenty protesters. O'Learysaid that Chicago police of¬ficers cautioned the group notto use their PA system infront of the hospital, and thegroup complied.

The Col¬lege Administration has also recogniz¬ed the value of internship experiencefor students, directing new attention tothe College Venture Program.The role of the Venture Program inCollege life, and the promotion of Ven¬ture in the U of C campus was discuss¬ed at a meeting held in October of FallQuarter with McDonald, HermanSinaiko, Dean of Students in the Col¬lege, Steven Loevy, Director of CAPS,and Susan Stroud, Director of the Col¬ lege Venture Program.The Venture Program, based atBrown University with a membershipof ten liberal arts colleges including theU of C, offers 200 to 300 diverse,outstanding positions toundergraduates on leave-of-absencefrom school.

It’s not going to goaway until we have a one-hundred per¬cent effective, safe, form of birth-con¬trol.” Osgood went on to identify abor¬tion as “always a negative, destructivechoice” involving the loss of life andmade the distinction between humanlife, which she conceded to the fetus,and “personhood,” something sheclaimed is not susceptible to either sci¬entific or legal determination.Mahkorn identified the fetus ashuman life as well and expressed sur¬prise that Osgood conceded that. Mah¬korn went on to identify the SupremeCourt’s refusal to comment on the legalstatus of the fetus in Roe Vs. Wade as a“denial” of their civil rights and ascommensurate with Nazi war crimes.Mahkorn’s emotionally charged argu¬ ment included comparisons betweenthe locutions chosen by pro-abortionrights workers and the terms “nigger”and “gook,” and a comparison be¬tween abortion techniques and the na¬paiming of Vietnamese children. Thelocutions compared to these racialslurs were not identified by Dr. Mah¬korn, who decried a “utilitarian ethic”according to which the lives of the un¬born are evaluated as to “conven¬ience” for the moter. After questioningthe competence of abortionists, shecalled upon the audience “not to settlefor mediocrity” and to “expect thebest” from ourselves.In her rebuttal.

LaRouche, Jr. has always beenintriguing. He and his associates havecome up with the most amazing, com¬plicated, and improbable conspiracytheories known to exist in the politicalarena.LaRouche’s name is becomingalmost as famous as the Rev. Moon’s.LaRouche’s followers are quite ubi¬quitous in the nation’s airports. Theyare the ones wearing the placards like“Feed Jane Fonda to the Whales.”LaRouche, a former Marxist andthree-time presidential candidate, isnow viewed as an extreme right-wingreactionary. Former members of thenow defunct U.S. Labor Party, anorganization LaRouche founded, “saythe group ... (was) run like a cult andtrained in terrorist tactics.”(Newsweek, 12-31-79)He is convinced that ‘QueenElizabeth, Zbigniew Brzezinski, andthe Anti-Defamation League of B’NaiBrith, among others, have plotted toassassinate him,” according toNewsweek magazine.At a LaRouchian conference held inTheatrecontinued from page oneCabe comments that these sessions arevery “helpful” and the audience enjoysfeeling a part of the creation of aplay.May 31 and June 1 Court will give twospecial performances of Tom Stop¬pard's play.

Other groups associated withLaRouche include the Fusion EnergyFoundation, the National Anti-DrugCoalition, the LaFayette Foundation,and the National Democratic PolicyCommittee.LaRouche was recently in the newsbecause of the extraordinary measureshe had taken to prevent any assassina¬tion attempts on his life. “Securityguards carrying semi-automaticweapons patrol the thirteen-roomGeorgian mansion which occupies theWoodburn estate in Loudoun County,Va. Sandbags, cement barriers, andmetal spikes adorn the outside of ...(LaRouche’s) mansion.” (Maroon. 1-22-85)So if ever you see intense people car¬rying signs with far-out slogans like“ ‘I Have a Dream' Feed Africa andBuild the Beam” or “A Nuclear Plantis Built Better than Jane Fonda.” youcan bet that it is Lyndon LaRouche whois ultimately responsible for thesewacky protests.LaRouchecontinued from page onepolice prevented members of theSchiller Institute from trespassing onUniversity property.

However, instead ofT4 Letters^Hi^MiThe Chicago Maroon—Friday, February 8, I985iAbortion controversy generates heat but little lightTo the editor:A few months ago, I was approachedby some students in Reynolds Club.They wanted to know if I was botheredby the idea of women having abortionsin their ninth month of pregnancy, andwhether I would sign a petition whosepurpose was the eradication of abor¬tions in the ninth month of pregnancy.The petition, which I did not sign, be¬came the ad printed on the back page ofthe Jan. 25 Maroon. After reading thetext of this petition I realized that I wasbeing solicited under false pretenses.The petition was not merely opposed toabortions in the ninth month of preg¬nancy. It made a statement opposing,in its entirety, the Roe v. Wade decisionconcluding that this decision permitted“abortion without restriction for thefull nine months of pregnancy.”Clearly, this conclusion is erroneous.The intent of this decision is not to en¬courage abortions in the third trimes¬ter of pregnancy. In fact, it specificallyinvites the states to create their ownlegislation for prescribing abortions inthe third trimester. Moreover, regard¬less of the law, WOMEN DO NOTHAVE ABORTIONS IN THEIR NINTHMONTH OF PREGNANCY! A studypreformed by the Alan Guttmacher In¬stitute showed that, in 1980, 50% of allabortions were performed within nineweeks of conception, and 90% were per¬formed within the first twelve weeks ofpregnancy. Those performed after thefirst twelve weeks were almost entirelyin the second trimester, not the third.The Roe v. Wade decision protectswomen who decide to have an abortion.These women do not make this decisionlightly, and certainly they don’t kill liv¬ing, breathing children. I strongly ob¬ject to the misrepresentation involvedin both the solicitation of signaturesand the actual wording of the ad in theMaroon. The advertisment attacks thewhole Supreme Court decision becauseof some moot point. Why cloud theissue with tears for murdered victimswho never existed? Abortions in thethird trimester of pregnancy are notthe real issue. If this group of studentsis opposed to the Roe v. Wade decisionthen they are opposed to abortions per¬formed in the first trimester of preg¬nancy, and they should make thisclear. Abortion is a real issue; unwant¬ed children are neglected, abused, andmalnourished. Fetuses being abortedindiscriminately in the ninth month is ahorrifying myth. If and when you havea real argument against abortion, thenmake it, but don’t obscure the issuewith irrelevant nightmarish images.Nancy SonnenfeldSecond Year Student in the CollegeTo the editor:I appreciate the report of the “de¬bate” held last Saturday, January 26,regarding abortion. However, I wishto state quite clearly that rhetoricalone by the practitioners of any dis¬cipline cannot, within the context of aUniversity, suffice without researchinto past, as well as contemporary,practices. Current discussions re¬garding the morality, legality andderivative contemporary practicesof the abortion issue must detail past,as well as future, practices in aug¬ menting or curtailing fecundity. Thedisciplines of law, theology, andmedicine are largely the gate¬keepers of such practices, frequentlyvarying in terms of famines and re¬cessions.What is frequently overlooked byzealous advocates of one or anotherpoint of view is the absence of re¬search in terms of the effect of oneapproach or another within the soci¬ety and especially on the individualsaffected. For the professional indi¬viduals directly involved in witness¬ing and attempting to understand theuntoward effects to one policy or an¬other, only research in whatever tra¬dition can lead to an understandingof contemporary practices as a pre¬lude to individuals and social posi¬tions. As an example, we need tolearn more of the consequences of aparticular position on the individualsdirectly affected by the policy, aswell as upon the aggregate society.Chase P. Kimbal, M.D.Professor of Psychiatryand MedicineDivision of Biological SciencesProfessor in the CollegeTo the editor:My signature on the petition opposingthe 1973 Supreme Court decision on thelegality of abortion (Maroon 1/22) in noway constitutes an attack on the equali¬ty or liberty of women.It is my firm and logically support¬able view that human life begins at themoment of conception. This is based ina philosophy of human potential unre¬lated to religion. As such, I see the ter¬mination of the fetus as the taking of ahuman life; I view the Supreme Courtdecision as granting the right to kill;and, as in the case of any infringementon the basic rights of an individual, Ibelieve that it should be opposed. Insigning the petition, I was being neither“sanctimonious” nor hypocritical, Iwas simply exercising my right to free¬dom of expression under the first am-mendment.I do oppose the Supreme Court’s deci¬sion.But as you pointed out, the issue isnot so simple that a mere prohibition onabortion will end the argument or theloss of life. There are many measures,educational and social as well as legal,which must be taken before that happysituation will result. Emancipation didnot grant full equality to blacks, and, inmany situations, the loss of securitycaused great material suffering amongthe freed slaves. Those of us whoequate abortion with murder mustwork on all fronts to eliminate thecauses as well as the symptoms.As for your charges of hypocrisy andinconsistency: May I first point outthat they are untrue...Several key fig¬ures in the anti-abortion movementhave adopted a good portion of your po¬litical and social agenda. A good exam¬ple is Joseph Cardinal Bernardin ofChicago whose “consistent sanctity oflife” ethic is gaining increasing sup¬port from both Catholics and non-Catholics. Further, I think that your di-vision of the issues ignores(purposely?) the complexity of the per¬sonal decisions involved.

One can contribute to any of anumber of volunteer organizations, onecan actually do something or one canadvocate government assistance. Per¬haps those who hold direct personal ac¬tion superior to government aid aremisguided, but they are not evil. I be¬lieve that all human beings strive forsome sort of consistency in their politi¬cal and social actions. Not all consis¬tency is based on the same distinctions,priorities and considerations. An at¬tack on the leaders of the anti-abortionmovement for not holding the samepriorities as you do is simplistic. Final¬ly, even if we did assume that the lead¬ers of the “Right to Lifers” are actual¬ly the sinister, “cynical,” caricaturesyou draw, can you in fairness handthese qualities of general no-goodnessdown to myself and the other signerswithout first speaking to us about ourmotivations, politics and solutions?Finally, Mr. Smith, may I remindyou that those of us who oppose abor¬tion are, like yourself, individualsstruggling with the complex moral de¬cisions of modern society. We havereached one conclusion about the start¬ing point of human life; you havereached another. It in no way followsfrom that that we intend the enslave¬ment of women, the oppression of thepoor, the ascendancy of the military orthe destruction of innocent (or evenguilty) lives. We are simply acting as aresult of our conclusions. Making offen¬sive, libelous generalizations about theintentions of all “Right to Lifers” in noway contributes to the rational debatewhich the subject cries out for. In doingso, you only increase the violence andcynicism which surrounds the topic al¬ready. The issues you raise are valid.The rights of women and all humanbeings must not be thrown aside. Theconsequences of a prohibition of abor¬tions in a society which views abortionshould be explored. To attack thosewho oppose abortion in the manner ofyour article is, however, not construc¬tive and ignores the fact that as a con¬cerned human being, I must do all thatI can to express my convictions aboutthe injustice and immorality of Ameri¬ca’s new “peculiar institution.”Thomas A. MulhernStudent in the CollegeTo the editor:I was amazed at the hostile reactionpeople had to Stan Smith’s piece on theanti-abortion movement. His point wasextremely well taken. Basically, Smithargued that the so-called right to lifemovement, or at last its leadership, is,in fact, not at all pro-life. Since so manypeople disagreed with Smith, I thoughtI’d look at the evidence.I happen to have a copy of the 1980Almanac of American Politics on mydesk. This gives a complete list of Sena¬tors and Representatives in the UnitedStates, descriptions of their districts,careers, and key votes. I took a kind ofrandom sample (Representatives onpage numbers ending 6 or 7) to savetime, and compared votes to “increasedefense spending” (H. Con. Res. 195,4/27/77) with votes to “prohibit govern¬ment funded abortions” (H.R. 755,6/17/77). The sample included 63 Rep¬resentatives.Of the 33 who voted against govern¬ment funded abortions, 24 (or 73%),voted to increase military spending.This compares with 9 out of 30 (or 30%)pro-government-funded abortionvoters also voting for increased mili¬tary spending.I don’t think these numbers will sur¬prise anyone. Representatives who are“pro-life,” so called, are also pro-mili¬tary.But it gets worse. Among the “pro¬life” militarists, there is a more ex¬treme group, which is not only pro-mili¬tary, but anti-social program. Of thetwenty four pro-prenatal militarists, 17(or 71%) voted for the Kemp-Roth taxcuts. This was in 1978 when Kemp-Rothwas defeated 240-177. More militarywith less revenue means less for gen¬uinely pro-life programs like Medicare,Medicaid, Aid to Families with Depen¬dent Children, and education. Can we call these human program cutting mili¬tarists pro-life? I don’t think so.This isn’t to say that everyone who isanti-abortion is also anti-life. But themajority of the leaders seem to be. Thisis what Smith was pointing out, and Ithink he should be commended.John ConlonTo the editor:The current clamor on campus re¬garding the issue of abortion remainsframed in the early 70’s terms of Wadevs. Roe. The argument is restricted toeither concurring with the SupremeCourt’s decision or making abortion il¬legal. There is an alternative: the free¬dom of choice by taking abortion out ofthe hands of those in government.Last spring (!) I was approached bya college debutante who was whiningfrom office to office in search of signa¬tures for the petition which appeared inthe Jan. 25 (1985) issue of the Maroon.She solicited my signature explainingthat the petition was about abortionbeing wrong and she felt that a Consti¬tutional Convention was the route forremedial reform. Since last spring sig¬natures were collected in such an as¬sertive and offensive campaign oncampus. Of the entire Hyde-Park Ken¬wood community, including the smallhandful of esteemed medical and legalprofessional’s, a mere 1,200 folks out ofa population in the hundreds of thou¬sands, committed their signatures toan ANTI-ABORTION petition.Not only this petition, but the entirerepetitious brouhaha on campus, withpanel discussions and academic de¬bates, continues to remain fixated onwhether to abide by the judgement ofthe Supreme Court or to oppose legalabortion. As the legal status of abortionstands now, all American women andtheir mates do NOT have the option ofabortion. Most medical insurance poli¬cies do not cover terminated pregnan¬cies (except for “emergencies”) andhealth services to welfare recipients donot include upon-demand abortions.The issue is not that of the rights of an“unborn fetus” but whether or not thestate is the authoritative guardian overall female bodies, or only the poor ones.To what extent should the state intrudeupon the body of a female? The petitionis a plea for institutional rape!Those who consider themselves mor¬ally privileged so as to dictate what isright and wrong demand that abortionis murder, the termination of humanlife. Yet, the eggs in my ovaries andevery other woman’s ovaries are notnow dead; they are life matter. Per¬haps these anti-abortionists in theirquest for total dominance over the fe¬male physique will outlaw menstrua¬tion as they did in Nazi concentrationcamps. Farfetched, perhaps, butwhere do we draw the line? Everywoman’s body aborts an “unbornfetus” every time she menstruates.The skeptics and anti-abortionistswill scream the status of the “unbornfetus” is different. How so? That, itmust be made explicit, is a matter ofFAITH. For Jews, the “unborn fetus”only becomes a human life when thecrown of the infant’s head appears out¬side of the mother’s body. For Catho¬lics who subscribe to Papal doctrine,life begins at “conception”; and to awhole host of various religions prac¬ticed in this nation, premised on thebasis of freedom of religious expres¬sion, differences as to “the beginning ofhuman life” exist.As the difference between State andReligion demand our national and con¬stitutional respect, so, too, should theissue of abortion remain one outside ofstate jurisdiction. As Stan Smith notedin Jan. 28’s editorial of the Maroon,those who claim themselves to be “pro¬life” rarely provide living testimony tosuch a commitment, except in their“anti-abortion” stance. Not surpris¬ingly, many of these right-to-lifershave also aligned with those supportingprayer-in-school and other contem¬porary causes demanding the elimina¬tion of the state-religion distinctions.As a “confirmed” child of a SwedishLutheran congregation. I cannot con¬done abortion, yet I was instructed inLetters 5iThe Chicago Maroon—Friday, February 8,the faith that I am not a judge forother’s “moral” or “immoral” acts.Such judgements, rather, are reservedfor other than temporal authority fig¬ures. This theo-philosophical tenet isnot specific to my own community to“believers.” but is virtually universalto the practised religions of this nation,whether Christian, Jew, Buddhist orMuslim. A Constitutional Conventionnot only threatens theocratic tenden¬cies, but, as Smith suggests, also theacquisition of state authority over thebodies of its female citizens.Few of us who are PRO-CHOICE arePRO-ABORTION. Yet, those who arestrident ANTI-ABORTIONISTS areclearly ANTI-CHOICE. For each ofthose who signed their name to such ablasphemous rendering of the issues, Isuggest you consider making a realcontribution to your cause: adopt anotherwise aborted child - an unwanted,unloved child - one who may have suf¬fered severe birth defects (diagnosedprior to delivery). In a world that is suf¬fering and starving, overpopulated andoverwhelmed with the human tragedy,I suggest the signers reconsider theirprivileged opinion. Consider living withthe consequences of an unplanned for-ur.wanted child, retarded or handi¬capped, often deprived of social, eco¬nomic and/or cultural opportunities.While the decision is not mine to make,the judgement over those who choose toabort or not is not yours either.Abortion should be available as afree, standard medical practice to allupon demand, regardless of race,creed, or color. I oppose the SupremeCourt’s decision and the legal status ofabortion, yet I did not sign the petition.I object to the current debate on thegrounds that 1) only those who can “af¬ford” to choose abortion are now al¬lowed to do so; 2) abortion is a safe, hy-genic, simple professional technique,which, if again made illegal, will be¬come blackmarket butchering ofwomen’s bodies and souls; and 3) abor¬tion is a rational, pragmatic and “lastchoice” solution to lives of property,deprivation, social deviance, alien¬ ation, rage, crime and punishment.There is no greater crime against therights of an infant than for it not to bewanted, not to be loved.Jill Dianne SwensonPrivileged enough to not have had tomake the decision to abort or not, andSwede enough to put my 2<t in.(5th yr grad st./ Comm on Human De¬velopment)Two CentsOn Nuclear WarTo the editor:When I was young, I did not under¬stand the nuclear arms race. Then Ijoined an anti-arms race group andstarted reading all about it in defensereviews, arms control literature,peace-group newsletters— I evenpicked up Commentary now and then tosee what’s hot in anti-commie circles. Ihad the issues down cold.But now I’m not so sure. Jeffrey Ben¬ner’s recent stuff in the Maroon sound¬ed like pure fertilizer to me, but after Irealized that I didn’t understand thedifference between per se and ad nau-seum grounds (something like that) Ifigured he must be a whole lot smarterthan I. But then I read Jeff Smith’sessay on why Reagan, the spiritual andcultural leader, has gone crackers. Ithas something to do with Manicheanpessimism, I guess.I get a strong urge to ignore this gar¬bage when the arguments are this farout. One guy thinks everybody shouldlearn to be Daniel Boone and the otherthinks Reagan’s a moron. None of thishelps me decide what to do or how tovote.So here’s my two cents worth, inthree points.Point A: We and the commies and ev¬erybody in between will be vulnerableto nuclear kablooie for at least the next25 years. It will be longer if the admin¬istration’s best star wars fans are justputting us on, but shorter if somebodymakes a mistake.Point B: Nuclear kablooie means we’re all sunk. Mr. Benner and his palswill be out in the country eating grassfor a while, but those of us who have yetto train our ferrets to catch rats for us(as some of his survivalist texts recom¬mend) can kiss it goodbye. The citieswill be gone. Our “civilization” (notethe root word) will be gone.Point C: Our government has notdone enough to prevent the above. Wehave failed to ratify the last three nu¬clear arms control treaties we’ve nego¬tiated with the commies (PNE, TTB.and SALT II, whatever that means).We quit negotiating on a comprehen¬sive test ban treaty in 1981. Not them,us. And now we’re blowing billions de¬veloping the technology necessary toblow the ABM treaty to bits. Reaganjust sent John (MX) Tower to Genevato negotiate for us. This is progress?Ok, the Soviet Union isn’t a paradise.Those guys are probably still beatingtheir wives for all I know. And they’vecheated on some treaties (as we have,as any American Indian, or Nicara¬guan, will attest). But we have to doour best with these (clowns, terrorists,typical pols, leaders of the revolution:pick one), because our fat’s gonna be inthe fire too if we, or they, screw up. Andwe’re not doing it.What I still don’t understand is whymore people aren’t out on the streetbitching about it.Ted StromThe $23,000 QuestionTo the editor:Wandering through the Quads theother day I was stunned to see a posterasking the students in the College to de¬cide what to do with $23,000. The onlycriteria it seemed were that the moneybe controlled by some committee andthat it be used* for College activitiesonly. My first reaction was one of sur¬prise. Don’t we have enough money¬dealing groups as it is? The StudentGovernment Finance Committee sup¬posedly gives out money to student or¬ganizations. while HARC, IHC andvarious dorm councils are responsible for allocating party funds. (To all othermoney-oriented committees I’vemissed, I’m sorry, there are just toomany to keep track of). What do weneed another self-important committeefor? To make it even more aggravatingto procure funds for an activity, or isthis merely a plot to get more peoplelike Brad Smith and Michael Aronsonin charge of our money? A muchsimpler solution would be to give themoney to an existing student group likeMAB or David Feige's Student Govern¬ment Activities Committee. S23.000could buy one hell of a great concert forthe students of this college. Some mightobject that MAB is a University organi¬zation, meaning grad students alsocome to see the shows. My answer iswho really cares? It seems that MABshows are mostly populated by Collegestudents anyway, and if a few gradsshowed up. it would only make thecrowd a little larger and a little louder.If it is so horrible that we share a littlebit of our money with a few grads, thevalidation cards the University sothoughtfully provides for us could bechecked and all grads kept out.If a great concert sounds unappeal¬ing to the College students, let’s givethe money to the SGAC. These peoplehave worked hard trying to bring a so¬cial life to this campus. An additional$23,000 added to their budget wouldcreate an opportunity for more Slunks,Nerks and Fests, something this Col¬lege could really use.The choice seems pretty clear. Wecould either create another egotisticalcommittee to hassle with or we coulddo something fun with this money (Isuppose $23,000 worth of kegs on theMidway is out of the question) and re¬mind ourselves that College need not bejust a stepping stone to Grad school. Isay we get out of the Reg and SLUNKwith this money.Jon Russell3rd year student in the CollegeEd. note: remember to keep submit¬ting those monetary suggestions to:where the big bucks should go-Room303 Ida Noyes.There will be a meeting of all Maroon staffwriters and editors onTuesday, February 12th at 7:30 room 303 of Ida Noyes• the first ten issues of the quarter• design changes• story organization• assignmentsYou are urged to attend!The Chicago Maroon—Friday, February 8,KUVIASUNCNERK III SCHEDULE OF EVENTSWEEK OF FEBRUARY 11-17MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11-15KANGEIKO, 6:30-8:15 a.m. - an early morning physical fitness regimenM, T, Th, F - Henry Crown Field Housea variety of sports and instruction in the martial artsW - a walk to the Point and a salute to the sun.NOONTIME CONCERTS, Noon-1:00 p.m. - a variety of small musical groupsReynolds Club North Lounge (except Wed.)M - Samhradh (traditional Irish music)T - B & L Band (a lab school blues/rock band)W - Carillon recital and description of carillon by Wylie Crawford; tour of thecarillon tower and view of the city in winter; Rockefeller Chapel Carillon Tower.Th - Tensor Tympani (madrigals, ballads, etc.)F - TO BE ANNOUNCEDFACULTY FIRESIDE SERIES, 4:00-5:30 p.m. - readings and talks on wintry themes Ida Noyes Hall, 2nd fl, East LoungeHot Cider and crumb cakesM - Dr. Rory Childers, Dept.

He at¬tended the University of Illinois for twoyears on scholarship and moved on tograduate from Southern Illinois Uni¬versity. He was on several US Olympictravelling teams, and went to suchplaces as the Middle East, Africa, andEurope as a gymnast in training.Simms first came to the Universityas a coach for the 1967-1968 season, andjoined the faculty the following year. In1972, he became Upper Rickert’s Resi¬dent Head. He is currently an Asso¬ciate Professor of Physical Educationand Sports Information Director forthe University. All of these jobs don’tkeep him too busy to know people,though. When the idea of ResidentHeads was developed by the Wirzups,their intention was to bridge the gapbetween students and faculty. CoachSimms has made that idea work. He iswell-known by everyone in W'oodwardCourt for his cynical sense of humorand his general friendliness.Past members of Upper Rickert stillcarry on a rapport with Simms. Com¬ments one, “I wouldn’t think of comingto Chicago and not seeing Coach.” Thisis unusual in a place like WoodwardCourt where student turnover is relati¬vely rapid.This rapport is easier to understand,given Simms’ actions in the dorm. Heremembers everyone’s name. It isalways surprising to see how manypeople who pass by have a friendlyword or crack to make to “Coach”, and Bill Simms, physical education professor and resident head of Upper Rickert, keeps going with his “cynicalsense of humor and general friendliness”.vice versa. He’s been called by manyan “institution.” Mr. Wirzup notes thatSimms is definitely “outstanding” and“always there” and “available” forthe students. Mrs. Wirzup adds thateven students from other houses havebeen known to come to him with prob¬lems.As for his plans for the future, Simmsis uncertain about how long he will stayon as Resident Head. His main reason for moving on would be the money, al¬though he doesn’t plan on leaving for atleast three or four more years. Afterfive or six years as a resident head, hehad planned to move on, but “one yearadded onto another,” he sighs. Lastyear, he even talked about leaving, butthose plans changed. Why? Well, hismother lives in Chicago and thenthere’s the kids. Simms states. “I kindof feel like a brother or an uncle to them.”Of the changes over the years here,Simms says little, except that he seesthe move to coed as positive. He addsthat the girls hanging around his dormhelp to keep the guys in line. He alsosees the kids as “more well-rounded,socially, not just Reg Rats.” The fresh¬man class, he particularly notes, is“outstanding.”ALERT! AIR TRAVELERS ALERT!The present air fare situation ischaotic and confusing to say theleast. But one thing is crucial,namely that many of the cheapestfares require a 30 DAY ADVANCEPURCHASE and carry a 25%PENALTY if cancelled or changedonce ticketed.There is often a big gap betweenthis “Ultra Supersaver” and the nextcheap fare. In any situation the onlything to do is to CHECK IT OUTNOW, DON’T WAIT!Also frequently space is limited.MIDWAY TRAVEL SERVICELOBBY • ADMINISTRATION BUILDING753-2300 OUR FAMOUS STUFFED PIZZA IN THE PANIS NOW AVAILABLE IN HYDE PARKOPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK11 AM T012 MIDNIGHTCocktails • Pleasant Dining • Pick-Up"Chicago's boat pizza!" — Chicago Mogodoc, March 1977"The ultimata in pizza!” — Now York Time*, January 19805311 S.

Underquestioning in the session that fol¬lowed, she admitted not knowing atwhat point the unborn achieves thestatus of personhood. Mahkorn assert¬ed in her rebuttal that in a hierarchy ofvalues, the right to life is primary, andthus the crime of forcing a woman tocontinue an unwanted pregnancy is notequal to the crime of abortion. Whenchallenged during the question and an¬swer period that there will be abortionseven if abortion is illegal, Mahkorn ad¬mitted that the thought of women un¬dergoing backroom abortions ‘’weighsheavily” on her mind.Dr. Mahkorn’s position representsan uncomplicated view of the rights ofman and the responsibilities of society.For Mahkorn, full, unconditional civilrights are attendant upon one’s mem¬bership in the human species and soci¬ety is only guilty of sins of commission.While the thought of backroom abor¬tions “weighs heavily” on her mind, itdoes not sway her. As a human being,the fetus is entitled to the same rightsas an adult citizen and society is guiltyonly of those abortions committed withits permission.For Ruth Osgood, the moral way isnot so clear; she identifies abortion asa tragic decision, yet one which womenmake and always will make. Further,she distinguishes personhood fromhuman being-hood. For Osgood, civilrights are not natural, and societybears responsibility for sins of omis¬sion, also. Thus for Osgood, societycannot simply outlaw abortion as im¬moral, for to do so would merely to con¬demn women to pain, mutilation and,frequently, death, while in no wayescaping the mass guilt of abortion.In closing. Dr. Mahkorn called on theaudience to expect the best from itself.Ruth Osgood reminded the house thatabsolute rights for the unborn are in¬compatible with the secured rights ofwomen today. comics 13BLOOM COUNTYBINKLEY.'

The othercontender, St. Norbert, lost in doubleovertime to Ripon Wednesday eve¬ning.Chicago faces Ripon tomorrow after¬ noon at 3 p.m. in Henry Crown FieldHouse, and the game will include a cer¬emony to honor the graduating seniors,and especially three time All-Confer¬ence center Keith Libert, who will fin¬ish this season as the third or secondtop scorer in the school’s history.The other seniors to be honored dur¬ing the pre-game ceremony are tri¬captains Nick Meriggioli and FrankCaeser, and senior forward AdamGreen. Meriggioli has started all fourseasons, and Green has seen occasion¬al time as a starter, wnile Caeser didnot join the team until his sophomoreyear.Half-time will be marked by another special event, a half-court shot contestfor a $100 prize.As for the game against the Bucca¬neers, Angelus called the Maroons’performance “inexplicable.” TheMaroons shot 24 percent from the field(13-of-55) and that made the entire dif¬ference in the game. “We got the shotswe expected to get,” Angelus said,“We just didn’t hit them.” Angelusadded that Beloit did nothing surpris¬ing or different, and that Chicago just“couldn’t put the ball in the hole.”The scorebook show's that no Maroonplayer had an “on” night, as the usual¬ly reliable Rob Omiecinski and TomRedburg led the -team-wide missHealthy wrestlers finish first at ConcordiaBy Paul SongEarlier last week, University ofChicago Head Wrestling Coach LeoKocher predicted that his squad wouldwin the Concordia Open. This pastSaturday, his grapplers travelled toRiver Forest, Illinois and succeeded inproving Kocher correct as they cap¬tured the Concordia Open title.With all but one of their startingwrestlers in their lineup, the re¬juvenated Maroons managed to placenine out of ten wrestlers. In the pro¬cess, they amassed 86 points and, forall practical purposes, ran away withthe tournament. Their closest competi¬tion came from the University ofWisconsin-Whitewater who only had 57points.Winning their weight classes wereAll-American Gene Shin at 190 lbs., All-American Karl Lietzan at 167 lbs., andJeff Farwell at 142 lbs. Shin, injured formost of the season, appears to be closeto top form. He looked absolutelydevastating as he collected falls all theway to the title. Lietzan continued tolook unbeatable as he easily disposed ofhis opponents in an effortless fashion.Farwell provided the gutsiest per¬formance of the entire tournament ashe avenged two early season losses. Hedefeated two wrestlers who hadpreviously beaten him, one in the semi¬finals and the other in the finals.Kocher said of Farwell “Jeff did agreat job for us as he won two very ex¬citing matches, and he appears to real¬ly be coming onto his own.”Chicago’s future, the freshman con¬tingent made up of Landall Cormier at118 lbs., Joe Bochenski at 126 lbs., andheavyweight Dan Lerner did an ex¬cellent job for Coach Kocher. Cormerand Bochenski each placed second andLerner, coming off an injury, placedfourth.Also placing were 134-pounderGeorge Dupper who had an off day,Mike Perz at 150 lbs., and DonElsenheimer at 158. All three wrestlersplace third in the tournament.Now that all but one of Kocher’swrestlers have come back from their personal injures, the Maroons appearto be back on track and quite a force.The only starter still out is Quentin Pa¬quette at 177 lbs. He suffered a brokenhand last month and is expected backwithin the week and should be ready forthe MCAC Conference Meet. Kochersaid of his team “I though we wrestledvery well and I feel that this is thestrongest our team has been this entireseason. This is due to the fact ourwrestlers are healthy once again andthat our freshman have really maturedand come unto their own. I am reallylooking forward to ending up thisseason on a very strong and positive note.”The Maroons will be travelling toWheaton, Illinois today to compete inthe Wheaton Tournament. Kocherviews this as the toughest tournamentthat his team has yet to compete in, andhopes to see his team place in the topfive out of the nineteen participatingteams. This tournament will featuretwo Division I schools in addition toseveral nationally ranked Division IIIschools. A finish in the top five would bequite an accomplishment and, at thesame time, a good indication of histeam’s ability and potential. parade with l-for-7 and 3-for-12 shoot¬ing respectively. Meriggioli did notscore, Libert and Dave Witt were heldto single figures, and Mike Clifford, thestarting point guard, hit only one of hisseven shots after averaging over 10points per game since his insertion intothe Maroon starting lineup.“Our defense was good, but again,we just couldn’t score,” Angelus re¬marked. “We just have to get things to¬gether for Ripon now'.”Ripon is truly an enigma in a confer¬ence of inconsistent teams. The Red-men, led by scoring machine' TomReader, manage to knock off Beloit,Chicago, and Lake Forest at least oncea year, but never contend for the north¬ern division title.Ripon defeated Chicago in Decemberby 17 points, and while Chicago’s com¬plexion has changed thanks to shake-ups in the starting lineup and the injuryto Libert, Ripon has shown flashes ofits capabilities as well, as evidenced byWednesday evening’s 72-70 defeat ofthe front-running St. Norbert’s.The Ripon game will mark the lasthome game of the season for theMaroons and will cap the HCFH ca¬reers of Libert, Meriggioli, Caeser. andGreen. After that Chicago facesLawrence, St. Norbert, and LakeForest, all on the road, to close theschedule.Men’s track squad competes complete for first timeBy Scott Bernard“You could have cut the emotion inthe air with a serrated knife,” glowedsenior track man Pete Di Teresa.“Words can’t describe the joy thatwashed over us, so happy were we tocompete together as a full team for thefirst time this season.”Last Thursday’s home meet againstValparaiso and North Park Collegessaw the Maroon tracksters close outJanuary on the happy note Di Teresasounded as the men celebrated theirreunion with solid performances in allthe track and field events. In previousweeks, the Maroons had competed in¬dividually in the Michigan Relays, theWisconsin Triangular Meet, and a cou¬ple of intrasquad practice meets. OnJan. 25 the freshmen and sophomoreswon the Junior College Relays in theField House, but, as sophomoreJonathan Cole put it, “it wasn’t thatfulfilling without the older guys toshare in the victory.” Last Thursdaythe upperclassmen finally joined theiryounger, beloved teammates, and theunited Maroons ran and jumped theirhearts out.Chicago walloped North Park 102-13but narrowly fell to Valparaiso 72-58.Separate scoring was conductedagainst the two schools, as if Chicagohad been competing in two separate dual meets.The more exciting of Chicago’s twomeets was by far the one againstValparaiso. Freshman Butch Anton ledoff the scoring for the Maroons by win¬ning the long jump with a distance of 2-1. Lap Chan took third in the event witha 19-7 jump. Chan and Anton also plac¬ed second and third, respectively, inthe triple jump and Paul Song cleared5-8 in the high jump to win third placein that event.But, going into the running portion ofthe program, Chicago was 15 pointsbehind Valpo. The Maroons neededblazing performances from all theirrunners to overcome this deficit.Sophomore Cole started the Maroonsoff on the right foot by edging out team¬mate Reggie Mills to win the in 1:18.3. Defending indoor con¬ference 800m champ John Seykoraeasily won his specialty in a personal-record time of 1:56.4. All-Conferencecross-country runner Mike Rabieh ranto an uncontested victory in the two-mile run in 9:49.Chicago did not win any of the otherindividual races. Freshman sensationStephen Thomas let Valparaiso’sBarry Acton get too far ahead of him inthe mile, and he was not quite able toovertake Acton in the final lap of therace. Thomas finished second in 4:32, a few steps out of first. Acton also wonthe 1000-yd run, beating Gary Leven-son’s second-place time of 2:21. Valpo’sother double winner was Bill Davis,who won the 60-yd. and 300-yd. runs.Seykora, Steve Eick, Mills, and GuyYasko combined to win the mile relayeasily in 3:34.9. Although the Maroonsgained a little on Valparaiso in thetrack events, they did not gain enoughto overcome the lead Valparaiso haddeveloped in the field events, and Valpopreserved its team victory.Against North Park, Chicago wonevery event except for the 300 and thetriple jump. Freshman Steven Lylewon the pole vault for the Maroons. Hisvictory is believed to be the first forChicago in that event since the heydayof “Hurting” Ed Derse.Coach Ted Haydon, whose manyyears of track experience immunizedhim to the infectious emotion per¬vading the Field House last Thursday,offered this calm assessment of histeam’s performance: “We had goodperformances and a lot of depth inalmost every event. If we continue toperform at this level, we’ll do prettywell in the future. I expect us to get bet¬ter. though, especially after the ner¬vousness of the first meet wears off.”44KUVIASUNGNERK ’85” T-SHIRTSON SALE BEGINNING MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11AT ALL KUVIASUNGNERK ACTIVITIES AND ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF HARPER.

The same fate also befell another NBAall-star John Drew. Drew had a successful career inAtlanta and was traded to the Utah Jazz. I guessthere must be nothing else to do in Utah, becauseDrew’s career fell apart due to drug abuse. He fellfrom being one of the league’s top scorers to beingan inconsistent part-time player. However, thepart-time he was playing before is better than thetime he is getting today.These two fellas fell off the wagon, but others,like Richardson, turned themselves around. The best example of this is New York Knicks forwardBernard King. Five years ago King was foundcoked-up in the middle of an intersection of Brook¬lyn. The Nets then shipped King off to Golden Statewhere he straightened himself out and won the Co¬meback Player of the Year in 1982. The next yearKing came back to New York in exchange for Rich¬ardson (this is a small world, isn’t it). Last yearKing led the Knicks into the playoffs and came insecond in the MVP voting. This year King is leadingthe league in scoring, and he, like other reformeddrug abusers, and the NBA itself have bright fu¬tures thanks to Stern.

ChanskyIf you will indulge me a moment, I would like torelate a few thoughts I have had as I approach my21st birthday. Normally, a person about to turn 21thinks about his first legal drink, or getting his firstreal job, or moving into his own apartment. I’vebeen amazed that as I approach this milestone, themost important thing to me is that I now have legiti¬mate sports memories. I no longer have to live offof my uncle’s recollection of M. Marion dazzling thecrowd with his play at shortstop. I remember M.Belanger at short, and am now prepared to spreadhis legend to all those living and yet to be born whowill never have seen Belanger play in a realgame.And since it is now the most uneventful time ofthe sporting year, I would like to fill this space bysharing my sports memories with you, or at leastsome of them. There are quite a few athletes whoseactive presence I miss dearly in my life. For in¬stance, L. Brock. Hardly a baseball day goes bythat I don’t miss the sight of Brock. Of course Brockwas an outstanding player, but so was C. Yastr-zemski, and I really don’t miss him. A Brock linedrive was a thing of beauty to be sure, but that’s notwhat I miss about him. Brock was the neatest ball¬player that ever lived. No one looked quite as pro¬fessional and business-like in the ridiculous regaliaof a baseball player as did Brock. The uniform fithim not ridiculously tightly nor comically baggilly,but essentially perfectly. And Brock put on a clinicevery time he put on his socks. The stirrups werealways three inches above the ankle, and the threered-and-white Cardinal stripes were always in plainview. You cannot tell today that the Cardinals stillhave those three stripes on their socks. And Brock’sslides into second were always angelic, with his feetfirst, and never over-sliding the bag. Certainly LouBrock never once had to delay a game to clean dirtout of his crotch. There’ll never be another likehim.And boy do I really miss Forgo, what an immensehorse. Forgo is the only athlete who never let medown once. Mud, snow, broken bones, overweight,nothing mattered to Forgo, he just won. It was a The Third Stringcruel trick to stage the Breeders Cup only afterFargo had retired. That was his race, billions of dol¬lars in the purse and a whole field of Essies to beatup on. I’m sure if he decided to come out of retire¬ment Forgo could have easily beaten John Henry.And I would have gotten to hear just one more, onelast time, that most common and vivifying phrasefrom my youth, “they’re in the home stretch...andon the outside like a wire it’s Forgo in front.”There’ll never be another like him.And M. Ali, who doesn’t miss him. Unfortunately,too many people younger than I got to see him fight,and miss him as well, but I miss the real Ali. Hebroke my heart when he recently said that he wasmaking it all up about being the greatest of all time.I still believe that he was the greatest of all time,and I’ll never stop believing it. And how can youmiss Ali and not miss J. Frazier as well. Poor J. hasgot to get his poorer son killed just to be close to thering. What a left-hand he had, he could knock overForgo with it. I’ll bet Ali and Frazier would agree toone more fight. No one would get hurt, and it wouldbe much more entertaining than any prospectiveheavyweight bout among active fighters. There’llnever be another peace-time rivalry like that one.And W. McCovey, the man who earned the high¬est accolade any first basemen ever could, the title“Stretch.’’...And B. Sammartino, the living legendof wrestling, the only man ever to lift H. Calhoun offof the mat...And G. Drutt, the first man ever to hur¬dle the high jump on the Superstars obstaclecourse...And...Stem medicine saves NBAfrom extinctionCraig FarberThanks to Commissioner David Stern and his get-tough drug policy the NBA is alive and well. Atten¬dance is up throughout the league, and Coke use isrestricted by the thirsty spectator. Under Stern theNBA have transformed themselves from the joke ofprofessional sports into a role model for other suf¬fering leagues.Three years ago the NBA was on the brink of di¬saster. Literally dozens of players were being ex¬posed as frequent abusers of drugs and alcohols, co¬caine being the drug most players chose to abuse. Sports 17The Chicago Maroon—Friday, February 8,As a result of this bad publicity, fans by the thou¬sands avoided NBA games and the league’s atten¬dance dropped, placing many teams’ finances intreacherous waters.It was about this time Stern took over the officefrom Larry O’Brian. O’Brian had paved the way forStern’s drug policy by instating fines for abuserswho failed to request help and suspensions for re¬peat offenders. O’Brian also made the NBA the firstprofessional sport, outside of horse racing, to allowteams to require players to pass drug detectionexams. When Stern took over he made thesechanges seem like nothing compared with thechanges to come.Two years ago Michael “Sugar Ray” Richardson(at this time Sugar did not stand for sweetness) wasrecovering from his drug problem. He had just ar¬rived in New Jersey from Golden State when he ad¬mitted his problem. Richardson underwent treat¬ment and returned to the team after a shortabsence. Then, Richardson started to miss prac¬tices and games. The Nets’ management was con¬cerned and called Richardson in for a physical. Ithad been determined that he was again cocaine de¬pendent. He was fined and suspended for this sec¬ond infraction. Later on Richardson was caught fora third time. Again he was suspended, but the Netslooked for some stronger deterent to Richardson’sactivity. They approached Stern for help. Sterngave the Nets and the league just what it needed.He told the Nets that if Richardson was caught onemore time he would impose a lifetime ban on Rich¬ardson from playing in the NBA.This action finally stopped Richardson. Sincethen he has totally turned his career around. He hasregained the magic that made him an all-star. Thisyear, Richardson may be the second best guard inthe NBA, behind only Michael Jordan, and his po¬tential is again limitless. Richardson is an excellentpoint-guard who can shoot from the outside, pene¬trate the middle and always find the open man. Butno matter how good he gets, he always has thatmonkey on his back. One more screw-up and his ca¬reer as an all-star guard is over.This threat is not an idle one. This year JohnLucas was making his fourth (or maybe more) co¬meback from cocaine addiction. He was the start¬ing guard for the Houston Rockets when they got offto their fast start. Then one day he was no longer incontinued on page 16Cfiaztotte (~Ui(?itzomczReaf ddtate do.493-0666Feature Time!Professors Row56th and Woodlawn*320,000NEVER BEFORE OFFERED!9 RoomsCentral AirBeautiful Natural WoodLarge GardenAVAILABLE AUGUSTELEGANT WOODLAWN AVENUE HOMENEVER BEFORE OFFERED!*360,000AVAILABLE JUNE Two-bedroom condos near campus from$45,000 to s73,000 call for furtherinformationIncome producingcoach houseincluded!14 Rooms6 Fireplaces7,800 Sq.

Strecker, Executrix for the estate of th'e lateMr. Clarence Gilbert.This is why I. Brandon Wilmund, Mr. Gilbert's loyal ser¬vant of seventeen years, formally challenge the validityof his will:In August of 1968. my cousin Lisa and I had just beenmarried (she’s my second cousin really) and we were vi¬siting her family in Rettonfield. Then, news came that mybrother Henry, who had been working for Mr. Gilbert,had died of a brain tumor. By the next afternoon, mygrandfather had sent a telegram saying that it was myduty to come back home and work for Mr. Gilbert. Mygrandfather, who must have been close to one hundredthen, was the person I had to answer to. So the next daywe packed up and came here. That is how my wife and Icame to work for the GilbertsThe next important time was right after Mr. Gilberthad that first stroke in 1971. He was still in the wheel¬chair and his speech was difficult to understand. A newsstory came on the T V. about a six-year-old girl in themiddle of the whole segregation issue. When she got offher bus, white fathers and mothers started throwingthings and cursing her. Nobody else from her ghettowanted to cross the color line and nobody white wantedtheir kid in her class. So she and about five white copsrode the bus everyday and sat with the teacher. After atime, Some reporter noticed that she was moving her lipslike she was praying. The reporter asked her, “Are youasking God for protection?’’ And the little girl answered.“No I pray for them that make fight. I pray: God forgivethem for they know not what they do.”I thought it was a good item and her six-year-old En¬glish touched a soft spot. But Mr. Gilbert cried all nightand all1 day about it. It was like he fell in love in a sickkind of way. He seemed different from then on and no onereally understood him. The little girl, as you know, isRuby Stubbs, who he left all his money to. He was a goodman to the end, but I think the stroke was hard on him.What I think is this: It is obvious that he was not right inmind after the stroke. His health was too unstable andthe decisions he made were too emotional. Therefore. Iagree with the brother of the deceased, Edward Gilbert,that the will should be contested. I am suggesting that adifferent method be established to distribute the estate.I will forward this to you through Mrs. Eleanora Gil¬bertSincerely.Brandon WilmundLisa.

The drawingwhich discusses the issue most intel¬ligently is Barry LeVa’s ‘Drawingfor Two Separate Installations Com¬bined into One Installation in TwoPerspectives', in which constructi¬vist lines and circles of various thick¬nesses, colors, and media work intension with each other; white paperoverlaying parts of the image areacreates a filmy sense of three-dimensionality which is suggestiverather than oppressive in its allu¬sion to a more open space. The othertwo of his works, along with AndreaBlum's contributions, at most pro¬voke an interest in the — absent —sculpture. The question arises: whydevote so much space to these fairlyuninteresting ’drawings’? Just be¬cause they are done by Sculptors?This is, indeed, the problem of theshow It is epitomized in Bruce Nau-man’s White Anger, Red Danger,Yellow Peril, Black Death’ and‘Symptoms’. Both are clearly worksfor sculptures; each includes direc¬tions for operation written on theside of the diawing. The interestthey incite is not derived from therepresentational work of the draw¬ings themselves, but rather fromtheir reference to the more activesculptures tor which they are theplans.The most obvious tour de force(although a bit impressionistic formy taste): Robert Morris’ Untitled(Psychomachia Drawing)’ displays aghostly turmoil, including a maze¬like structure which appears almostto rise up from the surface of thepaper — while a trail of footprintsseems hopelessly stuck to the flatplane and disembodied skeletonsfall r ,.:y on all sides..

RunDMC is, by many accounts, the bestrap ground around, and if you don’tthink that matters, then neitherdoes anything else in pop music. Thefact is, since around the start of thedecade much of the music that hascome out of England and Americawould have been inconceivablewithout the stylistic innovations ofrap and hip-hop in general.

For the average theater goer, an ill-icted, badly-written, horribly-produced>Jay is no great loss; next week means an->ther Frida/ night, another trip downtownn the Oldsmobile, and another play. Forhe disgruntled student, however, such antvent translates into the cost of a week’svorth of groceries (even with the studentJiscount), and an often chilling ride home>n the CTA as well.Nevertheless, in the face of these con¬taining factors, l am going to recommendhat you see Teibele and Her Demon be-:ause it is just plain good. The play is anidaptation of the well-known “fairy taleor adults” by Isaac Bashevis Singer, ands currently playing at the Northlight Rep-■rtory Theatre in Evanston, one of theireas’s most worthwhile companies,linger, who at eighty years of age has>een quoted as saying, “the sexual organsixpress the human soul more than any>ther limb of the body,” was known to anilmost exclusively Yiddish-speaking pnb-ic until Saul Bellow translated his Gimpelhe Fool into English some twenty yearsigo. Both Singer’s concern with sexual re-ationships and with Jewish culture areeen in Teibele.As the story goes, Alchonon, an awk¬ward young scholar of the Cabala, thelewish book of mystics, has his kishkes inin uproar over Teibele, a young women inits village, who, a3 a deserted wife, is for¬bidden either to divorce or remarry untiller husband's fate la known. But Teibelehinks that Alchonon is a schtemiei any¬way, and Alchonon’s cheap thrills are li¬fted to peeking into Teibele s windowwhenever he can. ft all aedms hopeless,intil he overhears Teibele regaling herlest girlfriend, Genendel, with detailediccounts of rapacious demons, to whoseremendous strength a “woman can’t helptut submit.” As he watches them shiver*ith what the innocent might abscribe toear. Alchonon realizes that he has found his angle.Well, by the middle of the second act,things get a little out of hand, and theRabbi steps in just in time to break up onehell of a party involving Teibele, Genen¬del, Alchonon, and Alchonon's best friend,Menasha. (Both men, incidentally, aredressed as demons.)Lurid as all this sounds, Teibele and HerDemon is not simply a Borscht-Belt rendi¬tion of Oh! Calcutta! When Teibele's breastis bared, it is the tragic climax of the play;both Alchonon and the audience realizehow effectively his exploitation of Tei-bele’s private fantasies has transgresedupon and shattered everything that sheheld important in her public life. AlthoughAlchonon’s heterosexual lust is the centerof the play, Singer shows us here, with akind of sadness, that the most satisfying,“complete” relationships in the play arebetween the pairs of same-sex friends. Inthis manner, he illustrates the differencebetween fantasy-love and the love thatarises from mutual understanding.The Northlight cast is uniformly good,with the attractiveness of the leadingactors, Isabella Hofmann and StevenMemel, being a definite asset to the prod¬uction. Hofmann is a very convincing,aloof, Teibele, while Memel conceals a pairof pectorals underneath his Cabbalist'srobe that do more to further his transfor¬mation from reticent wimp to rapaciousdemon than a whole school of acting tegh-niques. Jill Holden is a pretty, plump, bird¬like Genendel. comfortably accomodatingboth conventionality and sexual daring.David Colacci plays Menasha, the junkpeddlar, with down-to-earth charm. Eventhe rabbi is good. HOLIDAYby Paul ReubensAs the day of performance looms wonders just what a glitzy, beautiful-folk rag like the montly Vanity Fair wouldsay about the Other Theater Group's prod¬uction of the Phillip Barry play, Holiday,opening next Wednesday in the ThirdFloor Reynolds Club theater. It isn’t a clas¬sic play, or you would have heard of ft fishfingers, is it ever about the samehigh society folks (read: “old money”),high society romance, and high society re¬partee that one finds sprinkled like caviaron a cracker through the pages of VanityFair. The Holiday you might be familiarwith is the 1938 movie version starringthe then young Kate Hepburn and the thenhandsome Cary Grant. If you remember,Katherine was lovely and lively as a spir¬ited heiress who refused to accept the sti¬fling ideology of her souless Rockefeller-like family, while Cary (whomteen-idolRob Lowe, on a recent episode of Lifes¬tyles of the Rich and Famous, praised ashis “mentor”) was a young upstart who,although in love with one of Mr. You-Know-Who’s daughters, was opposed totheir sterile lifestyle.But as our ears hear it, before Holidaywas a smashing movie, it was a fabulouslypopular play on Broadway back at theend of those Roaring Twenties, closingonly on the eve of the Great (“men aremadJ” as international superstar Twiggymight say) Depression. The play managedto tap into a popular theme back hen, weare told, a sort of ' money can’t buy peace■ *by Lucinda Battel * oy the fact that the sink in the kitchen cf the"1#^w>fsmidterm pt^asuresf set has actual running,water.was spared on props, costumes, and set-m*/. result;pf ^s preparatisdy diissuepp|base a play on, the fact that it is not Intendedto sti es# a point or raise an issue is abig plusfar this production.Concrete Gothic Theater has boon veryprofasaional In the production of the play.The set mka reattstic.

It was karmato the pleasure-mad folks of the twen¬ties—just the pap they wanted to hear—but then the economic system of the West¬ern World collapsed, and no one wasinterested anymore.Would we dare to call it an American Bri-deshead Revisited? Certainly, we would,without the slightest hesitation. Holiday isa play rife with prodigal sons showing updrunk to family dinner parties, rottingaristocratic values, patriarchs who haveeverything they need, (and yet neverhave any fun), aggressive, money-hungrynephews, and so much more. It is also un¬iquely American play: there is, or top ofail this, a very definite committment (atleast on the part of the truly unhappycharacters) to the Puritan work ethic Andit was written years and years beforeWaugh’s book And it is a comedy. Serious¬ly. We wouldn't kid you about something’ike that.To the point: although Holiday is not re¬vived very much any more (it had a suc¬cessful run in Los Angeles last fail), it *scertainly an important play, and it hassome important things to say about thecorruption of wealth, the decaying socialorder and the general decency of thosestill possessed with a human spirit, whocan simply live, without material thingsweighing them down.

Wesnail never torget him.THE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FR'DAY, FEBRUARY 8 1985—5-fUnited StatesLaurie Anderson (Warner)Recently, a large number ot recordbuyers have been noticing an expensivenew package lying around their favoriterecord store. "What is this expensive newpackage?" they ask themselves. "A souve¬nir Duran Duran photo album?" "A super-extended dance mix of Relax?' ” Closerinvestigation reveals that the package is afive record boxed set of Laurie Anderson'sperformance piece United States. Thosewho have never heard of Laurie Andersonask themselves. "Who is this person, andwhy is she trying to sell a five record setanyway9" Those who have heard of LaurieAnderson will only ask themselves, "Whyis she trying to sell a five record set any¬way?" The question is an obvious one: An¬derson has sold relatively few records incomparison with other recording artists; sothe release of her four and a half houropera is bound to raise a few eyebrows.To begin with, referring to United States; as at? opera may be a bit misleding, butone uses the term for lack of anything bet¬ter. as in the case of Phillip Glass’ Emstenat the Beach. What United States does con¬sist of is. in Anderson's words "a blend ofmusic...slides...films...tapes...films (did Isay films?)...hand gestures and more." Ob¬viously. the visual effects do not translatewell into an audio form of entertainment,but the work succeeds well enough withoutthem. However, for those with limitedimaginations. Harper and Row has pub¬lished a companion book entitled, coinci- dentaiy enough, United States.In regard to the audio portion of UnitedStates, those listeners who are expecting achoral narrative along the lines of conven¬tional opera may be disappointed. Only afraction of the work consists of "songs." Anumber of the tracks are anecdotes relat¬ed with some slight musical ; accompani¬ment. For example, in "New Jjersey Turn¬pike" Anderson tells of a deaf 'couple whoset off from the East coast on a car trip toSan Francisco\ Ten miles into the journey,■ the burglar alarm in their car, door getsstuck in the "on" position. They drive allthe way to California like this. "You couldhear them coming from three rrtiles away,"muses Anderson.Apart from songs and stories, UnitedStates also contains a number of instru¬mental efforts. Some of these are deliv¬ered by Anderson on conventional instru¬ments. such as violins, Saxes, andbagpipes. Other compositions, however,are played by Anderson on instruments ofher own invention. The reverb is a primeexample of this; it consists of a microphoneplaced on the bridge of the nose whichturns the wearer's skull into a resonantdrum. Another of Anderson's creations isthe tape bow violin—a tape head mountedon a violin frame, over which is bowed apiece of pre-recorded magnetic tape: Thisdevice allows the user to rapidly vary thespeed and direction of the tape, resultingin a wide variety of sounds.At first glance, United States appears tobe a departure from Anderson’s earlier,WHYA BIGRECORD imore melodic works. Upon listening, how¬ever. it reveals itself to be more of an ex¬tension of heir two previous albums, orfather, they, are extensions of Unitedfytates. Chronologically, United States wascomposed before Big Science or Mr. Heart¬break. her two other albums. Big Science,iq billed as ‘‘songs from United States.”Most of the songs on Big Science however,db not appear in the same format on Unit- ved States. A large number of the BigScience tracks are merely combinations ofscattered bits of music and poetry fromUnited States. Only such standards as "OSuperman" and "Blue Lagoon" remain intheir unaltered form.i. From its description, one might assume'^United States to be a somewhat esoteric?&ork, at least for most listeners. Oddlyfjbnough, United States can be quite access¬ible, even more so than Laurie Anderson'sprevious works. This is because UnitedStates does not attempt to force feed the^unprepared listener with new concepts, as‘bid much of Anderson's earlier work: Unit-'ed States is a warehouse of creativity, butit allows the listener more time to acceptand digest what is heard. Anderson haswritten the work in such a manner that,just as it borders on the sublime, it fallsback to earth for a while to qualify itself.Now, to arrive at the burning questionsurrounding United States: "Isn’t five re¬cords too much?” The most common as¬sumption would be that the album wearsthin after five discs. This, however, is notthe case; the creativity of United States re-|mains intense throughout the entire work.Therefore, the only question is whether ornot to make this substatial purchase. Forwhile United States is definitely worth alisten by anyone interested in Anderson’swork, its purchase should be carefully con¬sidered before acting. For a true LaurieAnderson fan, United States is a blessing:one might never have to buy anotherLaurie Anderson album again; she has re¬leased enough material to carry herthrough an entire career. For one less enth¬usiastic about Anderson, the best ap¬proach would be to enjoy the album with¬out financially burdening oneself (i.e.shoplift or borrow a copy from a friend).The main point is that United States is animpressive work which deserves to begiven a chance because of its profuse quali¬ty.BILLY BRAGG,by Dave DemilleThe IntroductionIt had originally been my intent to write this ar¬ticle simply as a self-glorifying yes-i’ve-been-to-Europe-let’s-emulate-/VA/f£ concert review. Howev¬er, when I heard soon after my return to Chicagothat Billy Bragg was going to play at the CubbyBear Lounge on January 30, my thoughts turned tosimple propagandizing publicity. The combinationof a surprising amount of publicity and annoyingdemands from academic commitments, however,led me to delay the appearance of this critical/de-scriptive review until after the concert. By sodoing, however, I have managed to include bothpropaganda and self-glorification. I wifi begin withpropaganda, thinly disguised as:The Theory“Who is Billy Bragg? you ask. “Is he as good asFrankie? Is he influenced by Run-DMC0" That yogask such questions shows the urgency of my effortto reintroduce my fellow Americans to a kind ofrock and roll which can save their souls. “If thisBilly Bragg is so important,” you ask, “whyhaven’t I heard of him?" “Because,” I answer, “fieplays electric guitar." This alone, to any true¬hearted teenager, should be enough to perk theears in these days of Vox and Mr. Rhythm. But oh,oh—how he plays that guitar. Granted, he has cho¬sen to forego the usual accoutrements associatedwith electric guitars—you know, bass, drums, andsuch. That’s right: what we face is Billy, his guitar,and his amp (ok: and the occasional trumpet ororgan). “Whatsa matter,” you snicker, “couldneeget a band? Heh, heh." No, no. I said he chose to dothis, and if you listen closely, you begin to see why.To quote Reader critic Renaldo Migaldi’s admitted¬ly more literate restatement of a critical analysis Imyself made sevral weeks ago, “he deftly exploitsdynamics that range all the way from Jam/Clash eraax banging to a hushed intensity that would be al¬most impossible to achieve with a full band “ What WMmZ ' :YOURis key here is that he has learned not simply to play “She became a magic mystery to me and we’d/sitfolk-rock songs on a gurtar that happens to plug in, together in double history twice a week and/somebut to employ the electricity in the thing to the ful¬lest advantage—which includes knowing the rhyth¬mic and psychic importance of silence. His guitarscreams, it clicks, it hums, ft scratches, oh yes itscratches, faster than I would have believed hu¬manly possible, and when those tiniest bits ofjagged silence broken by equally tiny bits of themost grating, beautiful noise known to mankindcrescendo to a fully distorted climactic chord burst,the air fairly arcs and crackles, and neck hairs bris¬tle involuntarily. Whew. The man knows how toplay electric guitar.But the words—let's not forget the words. Billyclaims that he is on a mission to make folk-rockfashionable again, and that claim is reflected in hislyrical content: his songs are “about" either love or days we’d walk the same way home and/it’s sur¬prising how quick a little rain can clear the streets"(“The Saturday Boy”); “Kissing in the dark/and myhead against your pillow" reprised with “Kissingon the carpet/and your tights around your ankles"(“A Lover Sings”). Got it?If anything, however, these “love songs," won¬derful as they are, act only to temper the shock ofBilly’s political persuasion His “war songs" areparticularly effective; rather than cute “war is stu¬pid" carping in the Frankie/Boy George vein—which serves only to incite violent thoughts in my¬self—he uses his experience as a soldier todemystify and deglorify the experience of war.When talk of tactical wars, foxholes, mess kits, andweapons “made in Birmingham” permeates thehis personal reactions to larger political and social lyrics, we as listeners are likely to concede a de¬issues. In my (admittedly inexperienced) eyes, he is gree of understanding greater than our own, andcloser to a male, electric Melanie than to the Clash pthus are more ready to empathize and believe,to which he is so often compared. Mark carefully Again I'm slipping into inadequate descriptions,those words—male and electric—for these attri- but I’ll make one more stab at crystalline theorybutes distinguish his songs from the music which I before I go on. In "It Says Here,” Billy relates hisassocietewith“folk-rock/’His songs “about” love impressions of the generally sorry state of the Brit¬ish press. After'" several verses of effective descrip¬tion of the insidious ways in which the papers pro¬mulgate simplistic conservative “politics mixedwith bingo and tits,” Billy ends quietly with:“When you wake up to find that your paper isTory/Just remember, there are two sides to everyare filled with violent, irresolvable contradictionsbetween sweet nostalgia, poetry, wonder, hope,Innocence, belief in feminism, and compassion, onthe one hand; bitterness, betrayal, inadequacy, thestark reality of male demands, and almost violentlust on the other.Alas, my crude attempts at the description of the story”; a log and tense period of silence, thenemotions Billy can evoke are trite and limp (repeatthree times: “Art before criticism”); ;whiie this willgive a still incomplete impression, I’ll quote somelyrics to give you a better idea:J1 was dreaming ofthose Elizabethan girls/while you were working inthe market to earn our seives/and then you foundout what happened yesterday/white you wereaway in this land of Cain/we were upstairs In thebedroom, dancing, disgusting/and flushing ourbabies down the drain” (“The Myth of Trust”); full-volume blast of major chord held until it beginsto distort into a scream. This moment, I contend, is aperfect Aristotelian representation of moral indig¬nation. Now, with Aristotle out of the way, we canmove on to:The PracticeThe scene: The Lyceum, London, December 30,1984.

But the trouble startedwhen they made records, which is really more of agame than they might have first thought. Sincesigning, or rather, working by verbal agreementwith Factory (independant label of New Order/JoyDivison fame), Section 25 has had three LP’s outand watched them all attain no more than cult ren¬own. They haven’t made any money, something ofincreasing importance to most ageing post-punkers, these ones being no exception.Unwilling to act like popstars, they have reapedthe general reward. Not possessing the musicalstrength to make it through music alone, andsigned to an independant which can never hope togive them the promotion and distribution theirmusic would require to break the charts, their re¬fusal to resort to pop antics has found them in aquandry. Label-mates New Order are a clear exam¬ple of what Section 25 wishes to achieve. Withby Marilyn L. McCoyIn the coming week, the University of Chicagocampus will sprout sky blue posters announcing theNew Music EnsemDle Concert, at 8:00 p.m. on Fri¬day, February 15, in the fourth floor recital hall ofGoodspeed Hall. Some might be curious as to the na¬ture of this enigmatic “New Music.” What is newabout it? Was it written five minutes ago? Havenew musical instruments been invented? Has some¬one invented new ways to play old instruments?Or, does the music reflect new ways of structuringor combining musical elements? Most of the per¬formers In the New Music Ensemble would say that“New Music” can be — and is — all of these things.The following “sneak preview” of the February 15program will help illustrate why this “New Music”calls itself new.The New Music Ensemble Concert will includeworks that are “new” in terms of age, though cer¬tainly older than five minutes. These are piecescomposed by students at University of Chicago.“Piece for Piano” is the contribution of TimothyBrown, an undergraduate. Jonathan Elliott, a first-year graduate student in composition, offers his"Five Pieces for Piano,” written between December1983 and April 1984. The composer explains that"the pieces were composed as a continuum, and theidea for each came as a result of composing its pre¬decessor.” The creation of another graduate stu¬dent, Lazar Trachtenberg’s “Meditations for Clari¬net,” composed in 1979, was awarded Israel MusicInstitute’s Prize at the 1982 E. Peri Young Compos¬ers' Competition. His inspiration was the characterof a sudden thought, which comes “by chance — va¬guely at first but then gradually shapes itself,more and more explicity, in various way, and simul¬taneously keeps penetrating our mind, evokingthat particular phenomenon of being lost in medita¬tion.” >Other pieces will exploit new instrumental colorsand combinations of instruments. Ruth Lomon’s“Disiderata” for solo oboe and two marimba something approaching the minimum of record in¬dustry hype, New Order has managed to sell re¬cords on a massive scale. Frankie aside, the singleBlue Monday is the largest ever selling 12” in thehistory of the english charts. And you never sawNew Order prancing around the side of a pool in thenude, did you?Interviewing Section 25 before their concert,they come across as another dead serious, hardworking, independant label group disillusionedwith their future. Guitarist Larry on Factory Com¬munications LTD: “It’s sickening the mismanage¬ment that goes on. Our last record (From the Hip)really wasn’t promoted properly. Tony Wilson (Fac¬tory boss) and co.. they’re well intentioned butthings are so disorganized. They don’t even set usup with music paper interviews.”It’s difficult to say what Section 25 would do withsomething like an NME interview anyway. They ad¬mittedly hate the english music press for its seem¬ingly arbitrary “slag them off or love them” ap-players promises sounds that are “sensuous and se¬ductive.” Sidney Friedman, a composer in the Chi¬cago area, offers “Three Haiku of Basho,” ar¬ranged for violin, piano^and soprano. “Six Etudesfor Piano,” by George Perie, do not seek to beavant-garde, but rather exploit textures andsounds idiomatic to the piano alone. Furthermore,in accordance with the traditional definition of anetude as a piece of instruction, “the player must bea pianistic athlete, negotiating interlocking hands,rapid pianissimo passages, repeated notes, crossrhythms and dynamics, very wide jumps, and light¬ning movement from one thick chord to another.”Finally, the concept includes works composed ear¬lier in the twentieth century, which are, surpris¬ingly, all based on older or even ancient musicalmodels. Peter Maxwell Davies' Antechrist, per¬formed in celebration of the composers fiftiethbirth-year, is based on thirteenth-century motetand plainsong fragments. The ensemble of piccolo,bass clarinet, violin, cello and three percussionistswill be conducted by Christopher Coleman, Assis¬tant Director of the New Music Ensemble. ElliotCarter's madrigal for five solo voices, “MusiciansWrestle Everywhere,” boasts syncopated rhythmicactivity and melodic interweaving characteristic ofthe sixteenth-century English madrigal, though thepiece was written in 1945. Igor Stravinsky’sDanses Concertantes, a 1941 work for chamber or¬chestra, will be conducted by Barbara Schubert,Director of the New Music Ensemble. Although thework was intended for concert rather than stageperformance, the music reflects the profile of tradi¬tional ballet music, including marches. Pas d'Action,Pas de Deux, and a set of musical/choreographicalvariations.For both the initiated and the uninitiated, theNew Music Ensemble Concert on February 15 willpresent a multi-colored palette for painting theword “NEW.” The concert is free and open to thepublic, so the adventurous listener has nothing tolose — and “new” musical universes to see. hearand gain. proach, and see music hacks as an unsympathetic'bunch of yobos. On Julie Burchill (every aspiringtrendy music hack’s idol, writes for NME, FACE,Sunday Times) “She s quite acidic. Sometimes she’switty."Trying to get Section 25 to say anything positiveabout contemporary music is difficult as well. Unim¬pressed by the ZTT phenomenon, all they couldseem to give a good mention to were U2(?), theSmiths, the Unknown Cases Masimbabele. and thenew Cabaret Voltaire]The next album, for which they have already laiddown the backing tracks, will continue their pre¬sently varied mixture of dance music and ambientelectronic “drug” music. Three of the next LP’s cutsuse drum machine, two ambient tracks, and, a bitlate if I may add, an acoustic guitar track.This will be Section 25's fourth LP in their fiveyears of Factory involvement. But unless some¬thing dramatic is done to push this record, they willundoubtably remain in their present bind, beingskint. Section 25’s performance at Chicago's Metroonly confirmed my suspipions. The concert as a showas positively uninspired. Coming on as showroomdummies, they would’ve had difficulty whippingtheir most araent fans into a frenzy. The group'svisual appearance left much to be desired. Poorlighting compounded the problem that the group'sdress ^constituted borderline fashion violations.Does Larry think he’s in the New Model Army orwhat?Anyway, enough bitching, point made. Theywon’t play along and as a result they’re stuck. Peo¬ple want an idol, a popstar. They seek “star quali¬ty” and Section 25 is unwilling to provide. Larryadmits that if they act like pop stars, people winfall for itv So why the martyr, independant label,above-it-ail approach? Hasn't that reached a deadend? This summer's collapse of the largest Germanindependant label, Berlin based Zensor. illustratesthe current european wide trend of independantlabel contraction/disintegration, created by theirown refusal to market themselves aggressively asa “new” commodity. Section 25 s sentiments arepainfully good natured; Larry: “Popstars. theyway they behave, it s so stupid. They're supposeato be superhuman or something. I'd just like tosmash it all! They're just,guys!” Sorry Larry, youmay slag off Johnnie Lydon (“He's just a lazy bas¬tard”) or ZTT (unlikely bedfellows, but only at firstglance!), but they still sell the records. Believe it ornot, Section 25 still has their record design done byPeter Saville. the creator of New Order's packag¬ing, and the one generally responsible for Facto¬ry's 'constructivist' art direction. I like what Sa¬ville does, but in 1985 it's plain old hat. Yet Section25 puts so much faith in this man's ability to selltheir records that they allowed From the Hip s re¬lease date to be pushed back from Sept. 83 to May84 while he finished the sleeve! Ludicrous!Section 25, to quote, feel “It's got to go some¬where”. They are currently provoking interestfrom major label Electric. But here they run the riskof being signed as an investment in alternative'music, shunted into a corner, unpromoted. Whatthey really need is a state of the art ZTT hype job.which will necessitate a complete change of atti¬tude on their part. They must realize that they canhype cleverly, wittily, cynically, with tongue firmlyplanted in cheek. They must stop thinking thathype, image, pretence, means prostitution to theugly monster of POP. Pop can be manipulated.NEW MUSIC ENSEMBLEAND THE ANTECHRISTANOTHER CHANCE: FAVES 84For various reasons, the music poll printed heretwo weeks ago was not as clear as it should havebeen, which we believe is why the returns were sosmall in number. To remedy' that situation, we arerunning the poll for a second and last time withmore explicit directions.Those who have already voted should not voteagain. The only difference in the two polls is thepoint system, and all those who used the old systemwill simply have their rankings marked up by theuse of a ratio.Here are the rules:1) Write down your 5 favorite albums, 5 favor¬ite singles and 5 least favorite songs of last year inthe spaces provided below. All albums and singlesmust have been released in 1984.2) You do not have to fill out each category com¬pletely, nor do you have to vote in each category.If, for example, you only heard one song last yearbut loved it, put it down and send the ballot in — itwill count.3) If you want to, you may score each category. We are using an optional point system because webelieve it makes each vote more exact and person¬al, but feel free not to use it if you so choose. Toscore your selections, divide 50 points among yourfavorite albums, 50 among your favorite singles,and -50 among your least favorite songs withinthese rules.a) The more points you assign to a selection,the more you value it. For least favoritesongs, the more negative points, the moreyou hate it.b) No single album or song may receive morethan fifteen nor less than five points. Forleast favorite songs, the range is -5 to -15.c) your total may come to less than fiftypoints in each category, but not more thanfifty.4)If you do not chose to score your entries, eachfavorite album ano song will receive 10 points;each least favorite song, -10.Following these rules, then, a sample scored bal¬ lot for the favorite album category might give 13points for the first favorite album, 12 for the sec¬ond, 10 for the third, 10 for the fourth and 5 for thefifth to bring it to the maximum total of fifty pointsfor that category.There are three ways to return your ballot.1) Drop it in the box outside the Maroon office onthe third floor of Ida Noyes Hall.2) Staple it and drop it into a faculty exchangebox with the address shown below clearly visible.3) Mail it to the address shown below.The few entries that have been returned thus farare all interesting by themselves, but the only waywe can get interesting cumulative results — resultsthat would tell us about the collective tastes at thisschool — is if you vote\ Don't worry if you knownothing about music — this is a public survey, not apublic quiz. All responses must be in by next Fri¬day, February 15th for the results to be publishedthe following Friday, so vote as soon as you can,lest you forget.FAVE TUNES OF ’85 - OFFICIAL GCJ BALLOTFavorite Albums Points List artist and title for each entry.Favorite Singles Points Least-Favorite Songs Points1)2)3)4)5) 1).2).3'.4)5) .Check One□ Undergraduate□ Graduate□ Other(specify, eg lab-school student, campus cop, Han¬nah Gray, etc.) Send To:Grey City Journalc/o Ida Noyes Hall1212 E 59th St.Chicago, ILL. 60637or, Ida Noyes Hall, rm 303 Additional Comments:THE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8. 1985—7•t£* jM ft. ol orEVE MOVEDCome see us at our new location in Harper CourtCome see the new KAYPEO 16 (IBM-compatible)Come see why CP/M and KAYPRO are still the best choicefor those of us who write, research or run a business.POMERLEAU COMPUTINGsystems of Hyde Park5211 S.

This disturbs me, because Iam sympathetic to Orwell’s sense of howmass political discourse drains words oftheir content and reverses their meanings.When terrorists become “freedomfighters” because their cause is approvedby one’s state, and genocide becomes "so¬cial reconstruction” when accompanied byappealing slogans, surely all hope for ra¬tional political discussion is lost. It willtake better arguments than Mr. Hey’s,however, to convince me that these criti¬cisms apply to my article.Mr Hey’s letter is, in fact, low on argu¬mentation and high on assertion. He claimsto have found articles similar to mine inPravda (a true insult; he might at leasthave said Izvestia!), but he would admit, Ihope, that good arguments are sometimesfound in strange places. Pravda publishesmany fine calls for international peace andunderstanding. We may not take them tooseriously, but the mere fact that the EvilEmpire speaks of peace does not lead us toconclude that peace is a bad thing. In say¬ing this I am not being overly picky, be¬cause this kind of error permeates Mr.Hey’s letter.Apart from accusing me or this journal ofsounding like Pravda and belonging to aliberal political vanguard (something onewould have thought was a contradiction interms), Mr. Hey makes eight specific criti¬cisms, and I will address them in order.1. He attributes to me the thesis that themedia "collude with the Establishment”and “conspire to trivialize political dis¬course.” In fact the article nowhere men¬tions collusion or conspiracy. The media, onmy analysis, do not need to "collude” withthe Establishment, for the simple reasonthat they are part of the Establishment.They are huge, highly concentrated busin¬esses owned by typical businessmen whosee the world much the same way as otherowners of huge businesses. They reflect of-fical US propaganda fairly well becausethe US state itself is controlled by peoplewith interests, views, and capital just liketheirs. One sometimes observes conflictbetween the reporters/editors and theowners of the media, but generally theseare resolved in favor of the latter. This iseasy to do because the former tend to berecruited from the professonal/manageri¬al class, which has pretty much the sameworld outlook as the actual owners of thecommunications industries.I fail to grasp why this should seemshocking, distorted, or irrelevant; to me itseems prosaic but relevant. Any complexsociety develops mechanisms for engineer¬ing consent and conformity, and it shouldcome as no surprise that in a capitalist so¬ciety some of these take the form of busin¬esses, rather than official Ministries ofPropaganda. We need assume only the ra¬tional pursuit of self-interest on the partof those who benefit from the existing dis¬tribution of wealth and power — a classwhich, as it happens, includes those whoown the major media.2. Mr. Hey says in effect that the poor’sfailure to vote proves nothing in itself, areasonable point. I would agree that thepoor's voting habits are merely strikingsymptoms of the relationship between eco¬nomic and political inequality, not constitu¬tive of it. I lack the space to document thisrelationship fully, "but at Mr. Hey's requestI will provide him with a thick bibliogra¬phy of material on the subject. His argu¬ment here is peculiar, and seems to implythat the inequality stems from the poorhaving decided, for some unspecified rea¬son, not to exercise political power that istheirs by right. In other words, Mr. Hey ta¬citly concedes that wealth and power areunequally distributed, but smuggles in amoral assumption to the effect that the in¬equality is just because the poor couldchange their lot if they wanted to. Theidea that the poor are simply badly moti¬vated is very common among the privi¬leged, but is disputed by those who studythe culture of poverty and the economicand social position of the poor (see, for ex¬ample, the Catholic Bishops’ Report on theEconomy), and is due, I suspect, to bad con¬science.3. Mr. Hey challenges my characteriza¬tion of Reagan's policies as "vicious” bylisting some things Reagan has done thatare supposed not to be vicious. Again, thisis a peculiar way to argue: what reasonhave we to think that Reagan’s non-viciousacts (e.g. his merely comic acts, such as for¬getting which country he's in or discover¬ing at age 70 that Latin America is com¬posed of many different countries) com¬pensate for his vicious ones? More to thepoint, Mr. Hey’s examples of Reagan’sgenerosity are rather bizarre, at least tomy mind. To say that inflation was reducedwithout increasing joblessness obscureswhat is actually happening to the US econ¬omy, which is being transformed into alarge pool of poorly paid service workersand a small pool of high-tech yuppies andassistant yuppies (see no. 7 below). In"restricting the growth” of the Evil Em¬ pire, Reagan generously gave millions ofdollars in weapons and grants to many ofthe world’s worst dictators, and it is farfrom certain that the peasant victims of USpolicy in El Salvador, for example, regardthemselves as adequately compensatednow that Reagan has the USSR on the run.As for our security being enhanced by"Star Wars,” I would remind Mr. Hey thatwe do not now have a space anti-missilesystem. What exists is a stated intentionby the US to build one. The effect of this onthe Soviet leadership was to enhance theirparanoia, provide them with an excuse tobeef up their weapons systems, and en¬courage the military hardliners amongthem. I fail to grasp how this has "en¬hanced our security” and doubt it was in¬tended to do so. Reagan’s recent state¬ment to the effect that the USSR“negotiate or face an arms race” drama¬tizes this point.4. Contrary to Mr Hey’s speculationabout Kissinger’s motive for destroyingCambodia, his policy was designed not tokeep Pol Pot from coming to power (recallthat the US now supports Pol Pot) but tokeep a regime friendly to the US in power,an important difference. Partly as a con¬sequence Cambodia endured a brutal civilwar, enflamed by the machinations ofGreat Powers including the U£. Even if Kis¬singer’s bombing missions, which killed un¬counted numbers of civilians, were moti¬vated as Hey suggests, it is difficult to seewhy the label "mass murderer” would beinappropriate. We do not hesitate toapply it to Hitler, for example, though inhis deranged mind he may have believedhimself to be ridding the world of a dan¬gerous Jewish conspiracy. Such rational¬izations are always available to, and areinvariably invoked by, those who wieldstate power.5. Mr. Hey lists some differences be¬tween Reagan and Mondale in order toshow, contrary to my article, that they aredistinguishable. What I claimed, however,was that there were no significant dif¬ferences, so evidently the issue turns onwhat counts as “significant” and what onemakes of Mr. Hey's differences. In one in¬stance he goes slightly beyond the facts,suggesting that Mondale was for govern¬ment interference in everyday life andReagan was against it. I find it difficult tobelieve that anyone takes very seriouslythe claims of presidential candidates tokeep the state out of "everyday life,” anidea that is fraught with irony in any case(the "everyday lives” of most people arethoroughly dominated by the investmentdecisions of a few owners of capital, longbefore the latter’s state apparatus gets tothem). In Reagan’s case, such a promise isprobably best interpreted as a kind ofcode encouraging some of the more brutaland stupid aspects of everyday life, e g.racism, sexism, social Darwinism, andother accomplishments of Western civiliza¬tion. The two other differences are simplythose which divide liberal Democrat fromconservative Republican. Both positionsaccept the dominance of our economic (andtherefore social and political) life by pri¬vate capital. Their differences may be rel¬evant to certain considerations — for ex¬ample, in considering whom to vote for,they led me to choose Mondale. But withregard to fundamental issues, such as classpower, they pale Neither candidate chal¬lenged the militarization of the economy(though one supported a missile "freeze”),and neither called for the direct empow¬erment of currently disenfranchisedclasses (though one proposed to retainsome features of an already inadequateand degrading welfare system).6. According to Mr Hey, Nicaragua’s“100% Marxist-Leninist” Sandinista gov¬ernment proves that Communism is a realthreat in Central America. This, along withthe USSR's killing of 250 people in the KALincident, is supposed to show that ColdWar ideology is valid after all. Even if Mr.Hey were right about the Sandinistas, he would still be wrong about the Nicaraguanpolitical system as a whole, which, at leastsince the elections, features representa¬tion of opposition parties. It is also some¬what mysterious why Sandinista atrocitiesinflicted upon the Misquito Indians are evi¬dence of Marxist totalitarianism, whileKissinger's far more extensive killing inIndochina is only a "mistake." Could it bethat Mr. Hey is dropping into the kind ofOwrellian logic he accuses me of using?The real issue lies elsewhere, howeverBehind my disparaging remarks aboutCold War ideology is the belief that the na¬ture of the capitalist state poses an urgentproblem for the citizen. Our state calls it¬self "democratic” and in the name of de¬mocracy enthusiastically trains, installs,funds, and protects some of the cruelesttyrants in history. Other states callingthemselves "socialist” do the same, attheir lesser level of power and opportuni¬ty. It would seem therefore that we arefaced with a phenomenon that defies simp¬le "us/them” categorization. We need toknow what the modern state is, why it actsas it does, which class or classes of societycontrol it, and how it mobilizes popularsupport for its bloody policies. This is inpart the rationale for studying the media,which are important elements of the ideo¬logical apparatus that secures support forthe US state.In light of the US state's propensity forkilling, funding killers, and tolerating kill¬ing in many areas under its influence, therational person will react with skepticismwhen the US and its apologists base theiropposition to the Sandinistas, for examp¬le, on the claim that "Marxism-Leninism”will lead them to dominate and enslavepeople. If the mere fact of slavery anddomination were enough to invoke the ireof the US state, it would have destablizedits own network of client regimes long ago.The answer, I suspect, is that many "social¬ist” regimes have a nasty way of attempt¬ing independent economic development,which brings them in conflict with US-based transnational corporations, whichcontrol the foreign policy of the US stateAn independent El Salvador or Nicaraguacould not by themselves harm the transna¬tionals, but if allowed to develop success¬fully they might encourage other nations(or particular classes in other nations) toattempt something similar, with potential¬ly disastrous results on US imperialism TheUS state has generously volunteered tonip this in the bud. This perspective en¬ables us to understand why the US destab-lizes Cuba and Nicaragua but not, for ex¬ample, South Africa, though all are humanrights violators. The Cold War scenariodoes not enable us to understand it, whichis one of many reasons why it should beabandoned.If the USSR's attack on the KAL flightfully validates Cold War thinking, then onthe same logic the USSR's hostilitytowards democratic institutions is fullyjustified by the uncounted numbers of peo¬ple killed by the US in Vietnam, for exam¬ple, or by its training of contras who kill,not hardened Marxists, but ordinary civil¬ians. Since WW II the US has helped killmany more people than the USSR, simplybecause its empire is bigger and the de¬mands of the transnationals more exact¬ing.7.Mr Hey claims I attribute to Ameri¬cans a "horror film mentality” and thatthis obscures the real reason they votedfor Reagan, namely that they agreed withhim. In fact Americans voted for Reagannot because they agreed with him, but inspite of the fact that the disagreed withhim. Polls consistently show voters dis¬agreeing with Reagan on nuclear policy,military intervention and national securi¬ty, and entitlement programs, and manywho voted for Reagan do not characterizethemselves as "politically conservative.”Given the discrepancy between whatvoters say their political beliefs are andthe candidate they chose, it is reasonable to speculate about what is going on be¬neath the surface of the middle classpsyche.If Mr. Hey is uncomfortable with that ap¬proach, more straightforward explana¬tions of the Reagan vote are available.Liberal capitalism requires an expandingeconomy, so that entitlement programscan be funded by taxes on middle-incomeearners rather than through a real redis¬tribution of wealth or a significant reor¬ganization of the economy. The current dy¬namic of capitalism involves theexportation of low-technology industrialproduction to the Third World, which gra¬dually is destroying the industrial base ofthe US and eliminating a huge section ofmiddle-income earners. This is being ac¬companied by a dramatic expansion of theservice sector and a smaller expansion ofthe managerial and research sectors,which entails a lowered standard of livingfor many (as former steelworkers takejobs frying hamburgers). Pobotization andcomputerization also con ribute to theelimination of the middle-income job. Lib¬eralism was the dominant political ideo¬logy during this painful transition, andwas discredited accordingly. Since an au¬thentically Left position is excluded fromthe media and political systems, the op¬portunity to capitalize on this discontentwas captured by the Right. "Reaganism”is simply the name for a technique ofspeeding up the transition to an economyof a few well-paid yuppies (some of whomwill be chemistry Ph.D.s working for cor¬porations with lucrative military con¬tracts) and many low-paid, underem¬ployed service workers, by .emoving thefew constraints on big business that theliberals had established. The liberals’ fearwas that without these constraints, poten¬tially dangerous popular movements forchange might emerge. The Reaganites ap¬parently feel that these can be containedby the right combination of jingoism,media hype, general confusion and depoli¬ticization, and repression if necessary.Some people voted for Reagan becauseMondale represented the ideology thatdominated the current phase of capitalistexpansion, which they found rather pain¬ful, and they could see no alternative.Yuppies voted for him because it was intheir economic interest to do so. Many peo¬ple didn't vote at all.8.Marxism is hated, on Mr. Hey's ac¬count, because people observe Marxiststates carrying out the kind of barbaricacts that states characteristically indulgein. Very few states actually call them¬selves "Marxist,” of course — some claimto be "socialist” — but leave that aside.Again, what about the acts of states thatclaim to be "democratic?” Do the atroci¬ties committed by the nominally democrat¬ic state of England during its period of Em¬pire, not to mention its on-going atrocitiesin Ireland, lead us to reject the very ideaof democracy? The US state, in the name ofdemocracy, supplies arms and lessons intheir use to terrorists throughout theworld, but a rational person will not cometo despise democracy simply because itsslogans have been misused to mask op¬pression. Rather, she will come to reactskeptically when entities such as statesuse those slogans. On Mr. Hey's logic, thevictims of US weapons and planningthroughout large parts of Asia, Centraland South America, and Africa should nowfully understand that democracy is basedon faulty analysis and stupid reasoning.That states use vulgar versions of politicaltheories to conceal their true nature, how¬ever. should not lead us to give them thelast word about what democracy, or Marx¬ism is. Recall, by the way. that just as non¬socialist states have committed atrocities,not all socialist states have done so. as thecase of France suggestsThe most disturbing aspect of Mr. Hey'sletter is its tone, which can only be de¬scribed as hysterical. Nowhere in my arti¬cle do I mention "Marxism,” and I can seeno way on the basis of what I wrote thereof telling whether I am liberal, Marxist,anarchist, cultural conservative, or somecombination thereof. At most, one couldsay that I criticized some disparities in thedistribution of power in our society, whichI believe to be rooted in its economic sys¬tem, and examined some ways the mediadeflect attention from this fundamentalissue. Mr. Hey's letter is symptomatic ofour political culture's reaction to criticismthat falls outside approved boundaries orchallenges the presuppositions of the two-party system. Instead of being listened toand argued with, criticism is snidelybranded as the issue of an alien power,one step away from totalitarianism, a"Marxism” doomed to lead to violenceand enslavement. In taking up this alti¬tude, Mr. Hey shows himself to be one ofthe well-innoculated consumers of ideo¬logy described in my article, firmly con¬vinced that the price of fundamental criti¬cism is slavery and genocide Mr. Hey hasbeen marvelously "deterred” in the Bau-drillardian sense exploited in my articleThe price of deterrance. though, is toler¬ance for cruelty and stupidity just becausethey are characteristics of one's ownstate.—Frederick DolanTHE GREY CITY JOURNAL—FRIDAY, FEk&UARY 8. 1985—$i *1\ -y O • * - <■ "*’) YR AI j’A > t r~"/~* ’- r Vj - 1 1 - c1985-T^REY pTY JOURNALFilm Seriesv Eckhart 133Q)CtxsPOPCORN!
