BOX 1115, FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA 'MONDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1967 MWC Student Body Votes To Retain NSA Membership Teddy O' Toole By BARBARA HALLIDAY Mary Washington students vot- ed on Wednesday evening to con- tinue affiliation of MWC with the National Student Association. A total of 1001 students participat- ed in the voting; the count was 595 voting for affiliation and 406 vot- ing against it. The voting followed a debate in AC Lee Ballroom over the ques- tion of affiliation or disaffiliation. SIC Group Appoints Academic Task Force By ANNE GORDON GREEVER SIC's Academic Task Force, composed of approximately 25 students, met last Tuesday to discuss academic changes at Mary Washington College. The Academic Task Force has been formed to research com- plaints raised in the general SIC meeting of October 12. In a two-' week period, the task force isi investigating what the present rules are, why they were made, if the rules are good as they stand or if they need changing, if changes are feasible, and what the alternatives are. The task force will then pre- sent its findings and recomen- dations to a SIC group meeting on November 2, and the entire membership will vote on resolu- tions to be presented to SGA or faculty committees dealing with those areas. Maveret Staples, a member of the seven-man SIC Steering Force and temporary chairman of the Academic Task Force, opened the meeting with an ex- planation of SIC's origin, pur- pose, and goals. She outlined investigation procedures and sources of information. Cathy Dover, Kit Harahan, and Diane Taylor were selected as task force co-ordinators. Bike Registration On October 25 Bicycle registration will be held October 25, 1967, from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the Security Office (Room 104 A) in Ann Carter Lee. All bicycles kept or used in the city or on the Mary Washing- ton campus must be registered in complicance with city ordinance. The fee for registration is fifty cents. All bicycles must have a light on the front and a reflector on the rear. Lights can be purchased and installed for $1.50 at registra- tion. Members were assigned specific complaints to research. The Academic Task Force is dealing with 13 general areas which SIC members feel need investigation: calendar, exam- inations, registration, independ- ent study, general academic structure, majors, the cut sys- tem, degree requirements, the speaker program, quality point system, course evaluation, ex- change programs, and miscel- laneous. Concert Series The 1967-68 Concert Series scheduled this year include: November 7 Paul Taylor Dance Company February 8 Emlyn Williams As Dylan Tho- mas Growing Up March 7 The St. Louis Symphony March 12 Valery Klimon (violinist) Teddy O'Toole, National and Edu- cational Affairs Vice President of NSA, spoke for affiliation; Arnie Steinburg, editor of the New Guard, a publication of the Young Americans for Freedom or- ganization (YAF), presented the argument against continued af- filiation. Each speaker present- ed a ten minute argument and was allowed another five minutes for rebuttle. A 30 minute period of questions from the floor followed; each speaker was given 2 minutes to answer. Five minute summa- tions were then presented by each side. Steinburg opened the debate by terming the NSA Congress "a zoo." He stated that NSA consists of "a cycle of naive, inexper- ienced student leaders who are duped into belonging to NSA." His main argument was that NSA is not the democratic organiza- tion it claims to be. Less than 15% of the schools eligible for membership are members, and only half of these member schools are represented at NSA con- gresses. Also, few of the rep- resentatives that do attend these congresses are elected from their student bodies; most are ap- pointed. He termed this situation the classical case of "taxation without representation." Steinburg also stated that "NSA officials are habitual liars." He cited the CIA affair as an ex- ample. O'Toole, in his opening speech, declared that the representatives in NSAare committed to the view- point that as young student leaders they must take a stand on the political issues that are fac- ing the country. He reviewed the history of NSA since it was found- ed in 1946. He said that the con- (BULLET photo by Tacey Battley) "Monkey Business" has Sue Gleszer, Candy Whitmer, and Anne Towson all in the monkey proverb for the Terrapin Splashback, October 30, 7 to 8. Admission is Free. gress is important in that it pro- vides an international forum for students to discuss issues. He asked, "What in the whole world today is more important than these issues?" He also reviewed the services that NSA provides for member schools. In rebuttle, Steinbrug said again that NSA is undemocratic; its policies are influenced by those who support them financi- ally. He asked Mary Washington to disaffiliate, that this ac- tion may incite other schools to do the same. O'Toole, in his rebuttle, plead- ed that NSA is a democratic or- ganization. He said that "if NSA is not democratic, it is because of a failure in the electoral sys- tem." He also stated that students who attend NSA congresses, in his Arnold Steinberg opinion, go back to their schools better leaders. Jane Bradley, SGA president, moderated the debate. The speak- ers were introduced by Candy Burke, MWC NSA coordinator, and Bari Holden, leader of the group on campus in favor of dis- Executive Council Discuss Off- Campus Housing submit a written statement of unconditional parental consent to the Office of Admissions; (3) the student must be in good aca- demic and social standing; and (4) the student must not be a recipient of any college scholar- ships (this does not include loans or part time positions). The purpose of this proposed policy is in accordance with the extensions of student responsi- bility in the social realm. Execu- tive Council feels that such an arrangement would enable sen- iors to choose the most suit- able academic environment in which to live. If the policy is inacted, Exe- cutive Council has further recom- mended that the provisions be outlined in the letter to return- ing students regarding readmis- sion and room registration. This letter will be mailed by the Of- fice of Admissions in December, 1967, and will therefore make this policy available to rising seniors who will graduate in 1969. SGA Presents First Report Originating out of the Sound- off, but more for information than gripes, the first student government sponsored Quar- terly Report Session will be held tomorrow night at 7 p.m. inA.C. Lee ballroom. Because students complained that they never heard what hap- Tryouts for the Terrapin Club pened to their ideas, the Session will be held Nov. 6th at 8:00. will consist of reports from SGA Help sessions for those inter- committee chairmen and a chance ested in joining will be held for questions and suggestions Nov. 1 and 2 from 8:00 to 9:00. from the floor. A policy allowing students with senior academic standing to live off campus has been recommend- ed by five officers of SGA Exe- cutive Council to the Legisla- tive Meeting to be approved by that council. The recommenda- tion was taken to the indivdual halls and is to be brought be- fore Executive Council tonight. Patty Whitley, Chairman of the Handbook Committee, will make suggestions and recommenda- tions. The four stipulations concern- ing this policy consist of (1) the student must be 21 years of age or older; (2) the student must Swimmers Plan Fall Show For Terrapin Club Terrapin Club presents its an- nual Fall Exhibition entitled "Splash Back" on October 30 at 7:00 p.m. The first part of the program will be three routines from previous shows. This will be followed by a demonstration of the basic stunts required to join the club and advanced stunts. The main purpose of the pro- gram is to demonstrate to new students and anyone else inter- ested what the club does and the basic requirements needed to become a member. No admis- sion will be charged. i 2 i I Ui CQ HI CM Off- Campus Housing The recommendation for off-campus housing next fall for seniors is a great stride toward ex- tending student responsibility both academically and socially. Such an opportunity for seniors to select the academic environment most suitable for them reflects the interest of the student body as represented by student government and to achieve greater personal responsibility. Off-campus living would be the choice of some seniors for the reason that dormitory life hinders study for many college students. The lack of privacy and noise level on the floors often interferes with academic endeavors, and the student is forced to take refuge in the library or an academic building. Of course, the experience of dormitory living is a worthwhile one, especially for the orientation of freshmen and the creation of togetherness on the campus. Yet by the time students achieve senior status, they are quite capable of assuming more self-responsibility. Once the age of twenty-one is reached, the individual is legally on her own. Housing off-campus would provide the op- portunity for students to exert this responsibility. Many seniors already practice teach or do volun- teer work in the community. Senior year off-campus would almost be a preparation for the new role the student assumes upon graduation. Students planning to continue study would find similar living arrange- ments at graduate schools. Off campus housing would also help alleviate overcrowding in dormitories. Seniors moving off- campus would create space for more entering stu- dents. If many seniors chose to live off-campus, the expense and limitations in the number of near-by available apartments might pose a problem. Ex- penses, however, would not be so great if two or four girls shared an apartment. Perhaps once seniors are allowed to live off- campus, juniors will be given the same opportunity. Other institutions, the University of Virginia, for example, allows all non- scholarship students to live off-campus after the first year. The cry of loss of campus unity would be invalid in such a situa- tion. Despite off-campus living, day students presently participate in campus activities. By the time students are upperclassmen, class structure has already been established. Naturally, not all eligible students would choose to live off- campus. However, the opportunity would be there for those students wishing to accept the greater responsibilities which such an arrangement would entail. Statement of Policy >w -tkrt MWC unrnameds <Wi ^ atbwed -ib live OF F CAMPOS/ Letters To The Honorary Dear Editor: In reference to Barbara Bar- low's article on honoraries in the October 2nd issue of THE BULLET, in all fairness to psy- chology majors as a group, I would like to publicly correct a mistake which has repeatedly appeared in the SGA Handbook and which was called to my attention by your article. Requirements for membership in the Mary Washington College chapter of Psi Chi are an over- been of no use. This deplorable situation was due to the fact that two of the four serving areas were not being utilized!! Can there be a valid excuse for this? We realize that, contrary to popular belief, Mary Washing- ton is a suitcase college - how- ever, there are those of us un- fortunates who have spent all our money at the "C" Shop and are forced to stay here on the weekends. Are we to be punish- ed? Apparently someone thinks so - weekend meals are notor- iously the worst here, and now we all B average and a B average ha ^. to s *f d on line end lessly to in psychology. True, we are not a large or- ganization, but our aim is not to bestow honor upon many but upon those who are deserving of this recognition. The members of our society are now examining our stand- ards for membership. Whether a change will be made in an upward or downward direction is not for anyone to say at this time. Dana F.

Much has already been said about the ques- tionable quality and taste of the food (if you can call it that?) which is served at Seacobeck (com- monly known to those who are sub- jected to the services which it dispenses as "Sick of Barf"). Again this year we have ob- served that there seems to be a government surplus of the lowest grade of chipped beef, chile, hot dogs and ham - just to name a few of the choicest delicacies. This food, one might think, must have come to us because no one else educational Process, could be paid to take it. Dear Editor: In view of the discussion which has been circulating around cam- pus for the past two weeks re- garding Students for the Impera- tive of Change (SIC), the mem- bers of the Steering Committee feel that a statement of our or- ganization's purpose, plans, and goals is in order. SIC's main purpose is to pre- sent to the SGA a program of rec- ommendations which are sub- stantiated by research and which have been voted on in a general meeting of the group. We hope that these recommendations will move quickly through SGA chan- nels. In addition to this, we hope that as many students as possible will utilize SIC to begin a per- sonal involvement in their own All this is nothing new, and those of us who have endured "Barf" for any amount of time have resigned ourselves to spending our allowances at the "C" Shop. However, how long can one's allowance last? -and besides, our parents are forced to pay for the food at Seacobeck. We all know that the seating capacity of the dining hall is inadequate for the number of students. The exten- sion of the serving hours has helped to alleviate this prob- lem somewhat. However, on Friday the 13th, at both lunch and dinner, there were so many peo- ple in lines, which circled the Dome Room many times and extended into the dining rooms, that it seemed as if all the tables in Fredericksburg would have At present, SIC does not ad- vocate mass demonstration as a means of faciliating change. We feel that the channels available to the student should be utilized to their greatest potential. The result of their action will deter- mine SIC's future policy. Sincerely, Cheryl J.

These fifty-seven rare prints are part of the permanent collec- tion of the Library of Congress, and they include works of German, Dutch, Flemish, and Ita- lian artists. This particular group of prints was assembled to show the transition in style and subject matter from the late Gothic to the Renaissance. Influenced by in- creased mapmaking and book publishing, the artists represent- ed here have included in their prints such minutia as to com- pletely awe the spectator and mesmerize his imagination. The etchings from Adrianus Collaert's "American Retectio", for example, are each a fantastic little world created of the ar- tist's own eloquent imagination. Of special interst, too, are the six prints on display by Albrecht Durer. The subjects covered in this "Melancolia" by Albrecht Durer collection range from saints to sea-monsters, all intricately de- lineated, many amusing, most delightfully curious. The exhibit will continue until October 29th - it is well worth seeing. The galleries are open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., ex- cept on Sunday, when it is open from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Graduate Entrance Exam Date Approaches Seniors By NANCY RICHARDSON For most college students it was enough to have gone through the long and discouraging Schol- astic Aptitude Tests and Achieve- ments. Receiving acceptable scores for admittance is a great relief. Some students, however, choose to experience a parallel anticipation four years later. The Graduate Record Exa- minations, administered by the Educational Testing Service, are given to those who wish to enter graduate school. The test follows the same pattern of the college boards, but, needless to say, is more intense. It consists of an aptitude test and an advanced test. The aptitude test is given in the morning and comprises verbal reasoning, mathematical conceptions and reading comprehension. A more specialized exam, the advanced tests may be administered in Biology, Business, Chemistry, Economics, Education, Engin- eering, Philosophy, French, Geo- logy, Government, History, Lit- erature, Mathematics, Physical Education, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, or Spanish. Impossible to pass or fail, the tests serve only to assist graduate schools in appraising the scholastic qualifications of their applicants. The tests will be administered at the Hamlet House October 28, January 20, and April 27. STUDENTS!!!

His speech, given at Frostburg State College in Mary- land, was the keynote of a weekend drug conference which was at- tended by students from 24 dif- ferent colleges in addition to a number of speakers against the use of LSD. Leary, a former professor at Harvard who was asked to leave because of his expert mentaion with LSD on students, began by saying "We are not here to dis- cuss LSD. LSD is one of several chemicals that can turn you on. What we are talking about is a social or political or religious revolution." This revolution he is speak- ing of is one of rebellion against the social mechanisms and "ex- ternal games" of today's society. "We are mere voices in mono- lithic, huge, bureaucratic em- pires," he charged. It is impos- sible to be yourself or even to know what your own self is in such a rigid, status-conscious unfeeling world, so Dr. Leary makes his plea to "Drop Out." He is not advocating complete festive fashions AFTER-FIVE< I From 19.95 / FORMALS From 24.95 THE FASHION PLATE 1009 Princess Anne St. rejection of society and with- drawal into self by this plea. He is merely saying that to find one's essence, to know one's self, it is necessary to extricate one's self temporarily from the super - ficiaties of daily life. The song Leary is singing is "Do your own thing. Find your center, find your essence and do it." Then he proceeds to say "To find your own essence, you have to turn on. You cannot turn on with any external game," like music, power, or money. "The essence of turning on is internal;" it's within your body; it's physical. Here, Dr. Leary introduces the use of LSD as a sacrament for turning on. He argues that no one should criticize LSD for the physical changes it causes, because all religious sacraments involve the physical to some ex- tent. Fasting, chanting, genuflec- tion, and dancing were some examples he mentioned. Though Dr. Leary praised the psychedelic experience highly, he did not suggest that anyone in the audience take it. "There aren't five people in this group who are ready to take LSD. The use of psychedelic drugs involves hard work. Getting highand turn- ing on is a skill." He said the sense organs are so complicated that a person must learn to "turn on to the beauty and poetry of your body." When asked about the new medical findings concerning LSD, Leary replied that no valid studies had been done yet whicb proved LSD was harmful to the body. He said the only conclusive proof available now was that fe- male rats should not take LSD during the first month of their pregnancy, just to be safe. Highly critical of the existing stringent laws against marijuana and LSD, Leary said "You cannot pass a law telling me what I can do within my own body. Don't ever let anyone tell you what you can do in the territory of God, which is the temple of your own body." Dr. Leary pointed out that the government had never given a scientific study grant for re- search on marijuana. "Your government does not want you to get high," because they know that "as more and more kids turn on, they just can't run a Vietnam war. Turned on people are not going to be good social robots." Concerning hippies, Dr. Leary said "the hip person has some inkling who he is. He is aware there is more to life than LBJ vs. Nixon." He considered the California hippies by saying "Most of them don't know why they're in Haight Ashbury," but then looked at his audience squarely and said "but most of you don't know why you're here either." Dr. Leary concluded his speech in a serious tone. "You are all God. Nothing exists unless it exists in your consciousness. You are completely free if you are al- lowed to write the trip of your life."

Pot Poll 1. Have you ever smoked marijuana? 2. If yes, on campus? 3. If yes, at U. Va? 4. If yes, within this state? 5. Would you smoke it if given a chance? 6. Do you know of anybody who has ever smoked marijuana? 7. Do you feel that you are familiar with the medical and social facts about mari- juana? 8. Do you think marijuana should be legalized? YES 5.6% 4.9% 16% 54.3% 14.9% 63.2% 64.6% 24.4% NO 94.4% 95.1% 45.7% 74.4% 36.8% 24.5% 70.2% NOT SURE 9.2% SOME- WHAT 10.9% 5.4% Poll Results Show Attitudes, Experience By SUSAN WAGNER Response from over two-thirds of the student body followed the recent issuing of the "pot poll," conducted by the Feature depart- ment of the BULLET. Tabulated figures show that 5.6% of the campus have smoked marijuana and 94.4% have not. Of the percentage of "pot- smokers", only 4.9% have done sc on campus, while 16% have smoked marijuana on the grounds of the University of Vir- ginia. Reasons for this are fairly obvious: the scarcity of "pot" and "grass pushers" in the Fredericksburg area and the severe consequences involved if caught smoking pot would prevent most prospective "potheads" from attempting to do so on the Mary Washington campus, while the Virginia campus, being a large university and pre- dominantly male would afford more opportunities within a freer atmosphere fqr those who smoke marijuana. Although 68% of the student population at Mary Washington is composed of Virginia resi- dents, only 54.3% of the "pot- heads" have smoked marijuana in Virginia. Therefore, 45.7%, or almost half of the girls who have smoked pot, have done so in other states, either because they are out-of-state students (32%' of the girls here are) or they are Vir- ginia residents who were in other states at the time they smoked marijuana. This probably arises from the fact that marijuana, "Yonder's Wall" Opens in D.C. It is only a sign above a door: "Yonder's Wall." Go up a flight of rather shabby stairs, and you find yourself in the newest head shop in D. C. A head shop, by the way, is a small store which is run by and for heads (hippies) and sells posters, buttons, pipes, jewelry, literature, records, and other things to amuse the "turn- ed on generation. " It is a good place to shop for unusual posters and also has a variety of maga- zines and newspapers which are not generally available on new- stands. along with narcotics, is more readily available among the cos- mopolitan, metropolitan cities of which Virginia has very few. One of the most significant findings revealed that of the responses from non "pot-smok- ers," 14.9% would definately smoke marijuana if given the chance, 74.4% would definately not smoke it if given the chance, while 9.2% indicated that they might if presented with an oppor- tunity. This again supports the theory that because the majority of the sudents here are Vir- ginia residents and Virginia lacks a large number of metropolitan cities which generally act as a center for "pushers", the num- ber of "pot-smokers" would pos- sibly increase if more students were in a situation where pot would be made availble. Of those who have smoked marijuana, 24.7% indicated that they would not smoke it again. Extremely interesting to note is the fact that 63.2% of the stu- dents on campus knowpeoplewho have smoked marijuana, while only 36.8% do not. As far as the question of regard for those who do smoke pot is concerned, atti- tudes are pretty much split up the middle. Only a very few regarded "potheads" with praise, yet on the other hand, violent hostili- ties were also limited to a great minority, and both views consti- tuted only 10% of the responses. Of the remaining 90%, half were indifferent, stating that it was a personal and individual decision and their judgment values were based on more important matters, while the other half regarded pot -smokers as rather foolish, possibly emtionally un- stable and most likely immature and insecure, but did not really, condemn them for their pasttime. In a large number of cases, "pot heads" and marijuana were merely viewed with reservations. A complete familiarity with the social and medical facts of marijuana was felt by 64.6% of the student body; a fair knowledge was indicated by 24.5%; while only 10.9% stated that they were unfamiliar with the facts. With these figures in mind, it is sig- nificant that legalization of mari- juana was advocated by only 24.4%, even though it was almost unanimously recognized that mair juana is not medically harm- ful or physically habit -forming. Of the remaining students, 70.2% were against the legalization of marijuana and 5.4% were as yet unsure of their stand. Tune In, Drop Out" MARIJUANA Pro and Con By JUDI MANSFIELD "The worst thing about mari- juana is the laws against it, which should be repealed." This statement, made by David Sanford in "The New Republic" (April 22, 1967), typifies a new trend to abolish exaggerated myths connected with marijuana — or "pot," "tea," "hashish," etc. Legally, this mild hallucino- gen is classified as a narcotic (with heroin and morphine), but scientific research and evidence fail to support this claim. While authorities now realize that mari- juana creates no physical depend- ence, involves no withdrawal symptoms, and is actually less harmful than alcohol, the Feder- al Narcotic Control Act of 1956, which includes restrictions on marijuana, is still in effect. This law, in the light of re- cent understanding of marijuana, metes out outrageously unfair punishments for acts which may be as harmless as having acock- tail with a friend. Mere posses- sion of marijuana, depending upon the number of offenses, can bring imprisionment from 2-40 years. Selling marijuana is a felony which constitutes a minimum of 5 to 15 years for the first con- viction Perhaps the most pre- judiced law of all exists in Col- orado, where the sale of Mari- juana to persons under 25 is considered a capital crime. To fully understand the injus- tice of the punishments (both legal and social) connected with pot, one should know exactly how it affects the user. When inhaled, the drug passes into the blood stream and takes effect on the brain within a matter of minutes. The primary emotional effect is comparable to that produced by alcohol; usually, one has a sense of well-being (a good "high"), but the reverse effect can occur if the individual's personality is conducive to depression. Such an effect, however, is "not" an inherent property of the drug it- self. While some users say that pot increases sexual stimulation, others claim that it decreases such emotions; like liquor, then, it can affect an individual either way. Also, marijuana is "not" considered to be a psychedelic drug; the mind merely becomes more relaxed andideas flow more freely. One of the major fallacies con- nected with the marijuana myth is that use of the drug leads to other drugs which are addictive. The President's Crime Commis- sion, however, dampened this idea with the release of research findings in February, in which they stated that "there are too many marijuana users who do not graduate to heroin and too many heroin addicts with no known prior marijuana use, to support such a theory." In rebuttal to the arguments of pot smokers, who say that marijuana is not only less toxic then alcohol but also leaves no hangover, those opposing legal- ization of mari juana believe that our society needs no additional legal "vices" to tempt its citi- zens. But isn't this prohibitionist attitude completely alien to our belief in the individual's freedom By REBECCA HANEY Marijuana is a drug made from the flowering tops and leaves of the female hemp plant. It has no medical value and is considered as one of the hallucinogenic drugs such as LSD. Although many doctors say that pot smoking is not habit forming, I am against its use. In the Sep- tember 1967 issue of Today's Health, Dr. Benjamin Kissin of the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, says that marijuana can cause a state of psychic de- pendence which makes the use of marijuana necessary. Further research is needed to determine whether or not marijuana is habit forming, but I would not be will- ing to experiment at the possible risk of my health. Physically, marijuana raises one's blood pressure and pulse rate while lowering one's body temperature and rate of breath- ing. It tends to make one's hands less steady, and its use can ir- ritate the eyes and lungs. Tre- mors, and sluggish reflexes are also observed. Marijuana acts on one's nervous system as part stimulant, and part relaxant. Its effects come rapidly but they last only three to four hours. Mentally, marijuana distorts one's preception and sense of time and space. It results in a dreamy state in which one's imagination is quite active. To me, using marijuana shows immaturity on the part of an in- dividual. Marijuana provides a temporary escape from one's problems. This escape or false elation is very brief, and I believe one should learn to adjust to life without having to turn to drugs for answers. Many studies show that marijuana is used by the irresponsible, the bored, the unhappy, and the apathetic to create a false environment in which they obtain a feeling of security. Another factor against mari- juana smoking is that using it only can result in a long prison term because under federal law, it is classifed as a narcotic drug. Also, the use of mari- juana sometimes spurs a person on to the need for bigger and bet- ter "highs" which can be ob- tained through habit forming drugs such as heroine. I think that in our society there are better things to do for pleasure than smoking mari- juana, and I must agree with Yale psychologist Keniston that "... pot is a poor substitute for real, active, exciting, meaningful ex- perience." of choice? If a person would rather unwind from a hard day's work with pot than with a cock- tail, should be thus risk impris- onment? Perhaps the reaction of Dr. Leslie Feidler (literary critic, Fulbright scholar, and advisor to LEMAR — Legalization of Marijuana), to the verbal attacks he has received in Buffalo, N.Y. for his pro-pot attitude, can best sum up the need for abolishing the marijuana "myth ": "The only thing that's happening is that the town is being educated. That's always a painful process." Hip Tripper Describes The Mind ExpandingExperience (Editor's Note: The following article was written by a Mary Washington student and is a des- cription of an experience she had under the influence of marijuana this summer.) I hear music; I hear it so well that it is like I am in the record. The Doors sing inside of me and it goes through my brain; no- thing is lost; I hear everything. "This is the end" — I am in the hall watching the killer. I am watching him run — faster, faster, faster. I run with him: my heart pounds with his — faster, faster, faster. The fol- lower catches us — attack; my nerves tremble; relief. It is over. The candle burns; it flickers. I see the shadows; they radiate as the flame dances with the music. The vibrations move it; they move me- too. The vibrations in this room are good; these peo- ple are all my friends. We are all so happy here, so content, just grooving on the simple, little details of beauty that get lost in everyday life. I see myself in my mind sit- ting here, just as I saw myself running through the alleys with the killer. It's wierd to look at yourself on the outside, like a detached stranger. I wish I could figure out what is inside this mind. I get a little closer each time, but still I don't really know. Time is interminable; every- thing lasts so long. This song is for me; the extra-long instru- mental in the middle is for me because I like it so much. It brings back a lot of memories; meaningful memories of events that have changed my life. I've "turned on, tuned in, dropped out" to this song and soon I will "set the night on fire." The night is for me. One candle flickers incessantly while the other goes straight. I'm the flickering one; you are the straight one — who is right? who is better? You condemn me, but you don't know. You've nev- er wavered or Dent down or looked up to see my life. Your mind is closed to anything but your own safe secure world. You'll never find yourself be- cause you'll never even look. I've tried your way for nineteen years, and your society never told me where to look for my- self, but now I know where to go, I know that there is a com- munity where "love your bro- ther" is practiced, not just prea- ched by vegetables. My friends are not rutabagas; they are hu- man beings who are living, learn- ing, and seeking truth. Are you? My mind blows on. Incense burns. I go back into a groovy memory. We've been smoking and driving all night. I'm with some- body I like; everything is cool. We drive to a seawall on the bay. The water is black; the sky is black. The lights of the beach are on the horizon, and millions of stars are all around everywhere else. The lightning flashes pink — wow. We leave to go to another beach, a real beach not just a sea wall We pass trees; they seem so strange. It is about 4:30, I guess: I don't really know or care; I never do. Everything is so groovy tonight; life is so beautiful here. We're at the beach now; sand, cool and white, fresh salt morn- ing air. We watch the sun rise. No clouds on the horizon; it rises a bright, rose-violet color; a color I've never seen before. As the sun rises it spreads the spectrum across the ocean. A rainbow unfolds across the still water — unreality, but reality; rainbows are never this groovy. It's really moring now; the sun is yellow, not violet. Sleep; get up, still feel good and serene. I never feel anything bad after a high. Being high is a beauti- ful new world in the midst of an old one. It's all in the mind. "Are you sad because you're on your own? No, I get by with a little help from my friends; I get high with a little help from my friends; gonna' try with a. little help from my friends." 24 - Hour Radio Dispatch Taxi Service! • 14 Cabs • Discount for College Students for Both Out-Of-Town And Local Trips.

Studies con- ducted by Marmom J. Cohen and colleagues at the University of New York in Buffalo revealed that chromosomal damage in cultures Of human white blood cells could be induced by LSD and that ab- normalities increased with in- creased dosage of the drug. The study undoubtedly will im- press skeptics more than "adult" admonitions against using "that terrible LSD" inbetween their cocktail sips and cigarette puffs. LSD can cause acute psychosis and people have died following LSD usage. Yet it also remains that Korsakoff's syndrome is a psychosis and people die from lung cancer every day. Unfortunately, studies con- ducted prior to Cohen's were not conclusive and most suffered from publicity which concer- trated chiefly on the illicit use of potent hallucinogens, and dwel- led on the sensational aspects. Furthermore, controlled experi- mentation on humans in cases of alcoholism, psychosis, sex- ual perverison, and terminal, painful disease, found that the ad- verse reaction rate (prolonged psychosis, suicide, etc.) was a small 2-2.0 per cent, which boded well for research ex- pansion. Having digested this goody, many jumped to the con- clusion that with such a small margin of risk involved, doctors who protested vehemently against use of LSD were just spoilsports, in addition to being over 30. However, in uncontrolled and indiscriminate use of LSD, the picture is more grim. Bellevue Hospital in N.Y. has recorded 114 cases involving use of LSD requiring hospitalization in the past 18 months. Of these cases: 1 I -i —j 2 Ui Join the petite parade . ... in a heads up military manner by Kelly Arden.

Still. LSD advocates have cited many benefits of the drug. LSD gives insight through new per- spective, it evokes creativity, it is an aphrodisiac, and it trans- cends social barriers by aiding in personal adjustment. However, most scientific evidence does not yield proof of these bene- fits. One boy brought to Bell- evue Hospital after taking an enormous dose of LSD insisted that his trip was a great experi- ence, *1 have learned that I'm basically egotistical." Well, af- ter all, there are some things even your best friends won't tell you. In one creativity study, pian- ists were taped while playing under the influence of LSD. At that time they insisted that their playing was extremely good. Upon replay, the reaction to their own music was "How could I have been that bad?" Yes, LSD is a mental aphro- disiac. Stress mental. Hallucina- tions, visions, images, and thoughts are highly erotic in con- trast, but for the majority of users there is no physical coun- terpart. On occasion, if taken by persons deeply in love it may produce an extrodinary, en- joyable, and meaningful experi- ence, but who wants to be the party pooper and say love pro- bably is such without LSD? Chronic LSD use more often than not leads to renunciation of family, friends, and work for solipsistic, withdrawn existence - the "living end" if you will. In reading such results, it must be kept in mind that most cases that come to the attention of authorities are the result of ex- cessive LSD use. This may tend to exagerate statistics. An analy- sis on LSD in psychotherapy by Charles Shagrass of Temple Uni- versity Medical School has shown no adverse effects so far. How- ever, in no case did the subjects take more than 3 doses of the drug. According to Shagrass, "If there is an LSD effect, the ques- tion will be how much one can take safely." While there is very strong evi- dence that The Acid does damage chromosomes, conclusive proof is still needed to determine whe- ther or not germ cells (sperm, ova) are permanently affected, and whether, as Shagrass sug- gests, a few doses are safe un- der medical auspices. But in the meantime, it begins to look as if the hip trippers aren't really telling it like it is. Allen Relates Hippies' Philosophy As Unrealistic By MARY ANNE BURNS They came for a summer of love. To the City of Saint Francis, they came. They wore flowers in their hair, and in Haight, there was love. "Utter and crass sexuality," reports Dr. Philip Allen, chairman of the Sociology Department and recent visitor to San Francisco. While attending late August sessions of the American Sociol- ogical Association, Dr. Allen also participated in less parliamen- tary meetings of the minds on Haight Street. He discovered, to his disillusionment, that Hip- pies exhibit "hedonism camo-- flauged by love," rather than the ethical maturity many attributed to them. "You're the Establishment pushing down our Negro brothers; you live in an $80,000 house," characteristically clothed Hip- pies shouted to business suit attired Dr. Allen, the latter dis- concerted by the tone, and al- most amused by the deductions. His "favorably disposed," "sympathetic" attitude was shaken further when he tried con- versing with them. Dr. Allen questioned the inconsistency of wearing clothes which, ragged or, not had to be produced by the Es- tablishment. He found that even the more mature and intellectual spokesmen could not explain this away: Hippies claim social cut- off, yet drain social resource., Hence, Dr. Allen categorizes Haight society as overtly paras- itic. Hippies claim, too, that they have greater success in the real- ity search man we more con- ventional identity seekers, LSD being their most extreme catalyst. (It's quicker than col- lege.) How so, when Dr. Allen encountered the following unreal suggestion: some Hippies tried to dismiss the reality of their social dependance (for food and shelter, among other evils) by proclaiming that "we'd scrounge on our own: we'd live in caves" if the Establishment fell. As Dr. Allen states, that would hardly be a solution. However , he did not notice any mass migration to the "California hills: rather, he realized that Hippies can play at logic as well as poverty with little fear of consequence. Dr. Allen's questionings delv- ed further into Hippie mores. "If I wouldn't do it, somebody else would," stated a Jesus-like figure who doubled as a junkie. Living off his hooked victims didn't disburb him, he told Dr. Allen: after all, he had to live. Equally unconcerned with ethics but less honest with himself, one \ Dr. Philip J. Allen Hippie tried to justify his taking sexual advantage of girls by des- cribing several of Frisco's "res- pectable" night spots, as if their existence somehow absolved his. Yet these two will sing the fami- liar All You Need Is Love and fail, as Dr. Allen observed, to appreciate the strikine con- tradictions to whieh they, too, in their Establishment, have succumbed. So, what else is new? Rebellion isn't, many having been thoroughly researched by sociologists like Dr. Allen. Nor is it new that the period of change from childhood to adulthood is "difficult and confusing," as Dr. Allen terms it. Nevertheless, mere are some characteristics peculiar to Hippiedom that Dr. Allen pinpointed. For instance, the period between roles, each of which "carries a self-con- cept," is longer today because of increased academic require- ments. Secondly and most uniquely is the influence of tele- vision: "It promotes intercom- muniation between rebels. They tend to gravitate to each other." The third and final point is sug- gested by Mark Harris in a re- cent article of The Atlantic: "The Hippies have unsurped the perogatives of children — to dress up and be irresponsible." Yes, Dr. Allen agrees, and com- ments further that the affluent nature of the Establishment per- mits this extended childhood. Does Dr. Allen foresee an end to Hippiedom, and if so, where? He realizes that drug addiction and alcoholism will conquer first the freedom, then the lives of some Hippies; but the majority, Dr. Allen feels, "will grow up and leave and come to terms with adult problems." He cautions that "it takes hard work to understand our society," and that in order to effecitvely change it, we must "work within," rather than labor unrealistically without. Are Pot Laws Constitutional By PATSY LEWIS The anti-marijuana laws are presently being questioned for their constitutionality in many of our state courts. The law is be- ing challenged on several grounds. According to the pro- ponents of this law reform, the weed is no more harmful than alcohol or tobacco and it is ir- relevant to place marijuana with heroin and other narcotics. Therefore to impose the same penalities for the possession and sale of them is not valid. There is a nation-wide concern over this legalization. In Michi- gan a bill designed to legalize the use of marijuana was introduced at the last session on the legis- lature and is now awaiting con- sideration. Last month the most publicized test case began a pretrial hear- ing in Massachusetts. Defending the case was the famous attor- eny, Joseph Oteri, who currently serves as counsel for the Na- tional Association of Police Of- ficers. Oteri explained the mari- juana law "gripes me, the ha- zards of marijuana are a myth." In an attempt to prove it, he took the defense of Ivan Weiss and Joseph Leis, two college dropouts who were caught with marijuana in their possession and with the intent to sell it. Also under scrutiny in Oteri's legal battle is the constitution- ality of the state law in Mass- achusetts which classifies mari- juana as a narcotic drug. Several internationally known secientists took the stand during the first week of a pre-trial hearing. One of them, Dr. Joel Fort, San Francisco psychiatrist, who is a lecturer at the University of California and former drug consultant for the World and See LEGISLATION, page 7 Mind Vs. Body: An Analysis Of Pyschedelic Rock By CATHY DOVER From the controlled fervor of the Jefferson Airplane to the pandemonium of the Thirteenth Floor Elevator, psychedelic rock, the music that attempts to blow your mind, may be clas- sed along with several other characteristics of the Now Gen- eration; it travels hand in hand with nouveau art, micro-skirts, strobe lights, LSD, pot and the hippies. Whether or not its ef- fect will be lasting or minimal remains to be seen. The origins of psychedelic rock can be broken down into three strains: folk music, classical music and jazz. From folk music it gets a hint of a steady beat, while from classical music it draws the quality of tension which permeates psychedelic rock; it is the uncertainty between what the beat actually is and what it would be if it were straight. This plus the myriad arrangements and patterns of the music are what give it its frenzied, uncontroll- able quality. The resemblances to jazz must also be noted — from jazz, it draws its use of the ex- tended instrumental solo. Psychedelic music, however, is not merely lyrics and sound; it is a compilation of compli- cated effects ranging from the use of flashing strobe light on stage to tricky rhythm patterns and obscure words. It is be- cause of the nature of these complications that the name psy- chedelic has arisen; this is not just music, but a total effect intended to appeal to the psy- che, or mind, of the listener. In this sense, it differs from straight rock music, whose steady beat lends it a primitive animal quality — hence, wher considering the two types of rock, we arrive at the philosophical problem of mind vs. body. This appeal to the mind is an indi- rect cause oftheinfrequencywith which psychedelic is heard on the radio — its appeal is that of listening music, not background music. Also, virtually no 45 rpm's are being made of psy- chedelic music because of the complication of its form. Here it should be noted, however, that so few 45's are being sold that disc jockeys no longer consider By JESSIE ELDER The effects of the new hal- lucinatory drugs have creat- ed a whole new realm of art. Not content with the individual sen- sations caused by these drugs, the experimenters have immortaliz- ed their impressions on canvas, or any other medium at this dis- posal. The outcome of this crea- tive explosion is the mode of psychedelic art. The purpose of psychedelic art is to create the hallucina- tory effects and impressions that are produced by LSD and the other mind-expanding drugs. Psychedelic art appeals to the senses, not to the logic. In its milder form, it makes use of ex- plosive colors and wild designs. The optical illusion is a popular device in this art cult. In its more mature form, psychedelic im- pressions are created by using such things as flashing lights, See PSYCHEDELIC 8 — Legalization C aS C S From Page 6 Health Organization, said "Mari- juana is not a narcotic, it is not addictive; it does not cause mental illness." He also com- mented that the drug does not lead to stronger drugs, does not cause crime, nor does it lead to sexual excess or deviant con- duct. Very often the use of the drug is due to the desire of a for- bidden thrill and results in pri- son terms for young people who otherwise have never been apart of any crime. Oteri feels that present marijuana laws are run- ning the risk of "Excluding per- haps 25 per cent of the future leaders of this country, brand- ing them as drug addicts." However Dr. Donald Louria, chairman of the New York Coun- cil on Drug Addiction, agreed with a narcotic; but he did differ in opinion in other areas. He says that marijuana may lead to men- tal illness, may lead to the use of more dangerous drugs, and may produce a psychological de- pendence on the user. He con- tinues that marijuana even cau- ses a deterioration of time and space perception. Also it may tead to acute int oxication and for an unstable personality can have a deleterious effect on that per- sonality. The difference in the opinions of these two men are symptons of the controversy over the en- tire nation. The contradictions reveal the complexity in legal questions, and the outcome of the battle is unsure. The first law against marijuana in the U.S. was passed by Con- gress in 1937. At that time one could be given up to five years for any pot offense, but now the maximum penalty is 40 years. No probation is allowed for sec- ond offenses and a minimum sen- tence of five years is manda- tory. There is no difference le- gally between pot and other drugs, such as heroin and opium, in most states. Selling marijuana to minors can bring the death penalty in Georgia, though this is an extreme case. \Colonx Studiosl Comer of William m Princess Anne Sts.

One can't consider the whole question of psychedelic rock with- out mentioning a few of its pro- ponents. The Jefferson Airplane, with their second album, "S u r- realistic Pillow," are an excel- lent example. Such songs as "She Has Funny Cars" and "Today" are two which would show the variety which the group is cap- able of producing. The Airplane differ immensely when seen in concert and when hear on a re- cord — in concert their em- phasis is on long extended solos, while their records are primar- ily rock. When speaking of the use of the solo, the Blues Project must be mentioned — their use of this technique has made them the bridge between rock and jazz. The Doors, The Grateful Dead, and the Group Image are all new groups which have followed these techniques and whose records are being received enthusiasti- cally. Others, however, such as The Vagrants, seem to be using (BULLE T photo by Tacey Battley) Pots or Pot? the complicated effects of psy- chedelic music to detract the lis- tener's attention from their in- ability to play their instruments and their negative knowledge of music. Lights and spangled suits do not make a rock band a psy- chedelic one — it requires a deep understanding of music and music theory. At the moment, the most perti- nent question affecting psyche- delic rock is whether or not it will be swallowed up by the electronic music that the Beatles have in- troduced with their controversial "Sgt. Peper" album. This seems doubtful, however, be- cause of the more valid appeal that the psychedelic music has. This is music whose roots are in the types of music that we have enjoyed for years, not merely in the sound coll- sion of reversed record tapes and disturbing sound ef- fects which characterize electro- nic music.

This October marks the forty- first anniversay of another British triumph over American letters. Due to the precocious an- tics of seven animals and one six - year-old boy, who cavort merrily through ten fanciful chapters, the imperiled reader is left helpless with laughter, realizing only too late that Winnie-the-Pooh is not an ordinary children's book. Part of the unique appeal of these whimsical characters stems from the hilariously dignified style of a Punch columnist, and a series of captivating illustrations by a shrewd, very intuitive artist. For those unfortunates un- initiated in the wiles of A. A.

Similarly, if the unwary reader does not think that children's books can be interesting, or the characters capable of speaking coherently, or the tales able to possess different reading levels, he runs the risk of being pleasant- ly surprised and captivated by Milne's imaginary fancies. The saga of Edward Bear, who came out from under the name of Sanders to be known as Winnie - ther-Pooh, begins quite innocent- ly in the accepted style for most juvenile stories. The onoma- topoeic introduction (Bump, bump, bump!) to Pooh Bear leads to the familiar "Once upon a time ..." However, the book is saved from the trite or didactic fate of most animal stories by the en- dearing frailties of Pooh, who serves as hero and jongleur, singing of his meritorious deeds. During the brief ten-chapter acquaintance with Bear and his merry friends, the reader be- comes hopelessly entrapped in adventures featuring Pooh's en- counter with the "wrong kind of Bees," Piglet's experiences in dealing with a Heffalump, an "ex- potition" to discover the North Pole, and other enthralling tales, which lure the reader from per- forming his (her) expected duties, and leaves her perpetually en- grossed in Pooh Corner. The most satisfactory method of reading Pooh, and yet the most addictive, is to sit around a warm fireplace, with at least ten chil- dren present. Pooh is best read aloud, with appropriate sound ef- fects, but, in the event that chil- dren or fireplace are not avail- able, Milne's stories are quite suitable for solitary reading. Despite the generally known curative effect the work has on "don't-want-to-go-to-bed" chil- dren, it has been found that Winnie-the-Pooh has an equally beneficial effect on cynical col- lege students, weary of Nietschze, the Bomb, and Society. Perhaps, it can be said, that once the addictive dangers of this book are overcome, it could be instru- mental in leading the experienced reader to a more peaceful degree of sanity.
