Twenty -two professors will 
resign from the Mary Washing- 
ton College faculty this spring, 
according to department chair- 
men. Most of their replace- 
ments have already been hired 
(see BULLET, April 29), and 
other vacancies are hoped to be 
filled shortly 



Mrs. Dorothy Van Winkle, pro- 
fessor of Art, and Mr. Henry 
Halem, Instructor of Art, will 
be leaving from the Art depart- 
ment. 

Dr. William A. Castle is re- 
signing as Professor and Chair- 
man of the Biology Department. 
William C. Pinschmidt, Jr. has 



Handbook Changes Passed by 
Legislative Council, Sent to Exec 



Nine handbook changes were 
passed by Legislative Council 
last night. They will be sent 
on to Executive Council for a 
vote tonight and, if passed, will 
be taken in the form of a re- 
commendation to the Chancellor 
for discussion. 

Differing from the procesure of 
last year, these handbook changes 
will not be presented to the stu- 
dent body for a vote. SGA mem- 
bers felt that this was unneces- 
sary because the changes were 
proposed by the students at a 
Sound-Off, and were later dis- 
cussed in hall meetings. Also, 
a campus-wide vote is not totally 
effective because it does not al- 
low for flexibility: students "can 
only vote yes or no, and cannot 
make constructive proposals. 

Because there has been so 
much discussion and disagree- 
ment about the procedure, SGA 
President Patti Boise has sche- 
duled another South-Off for 
Thursday at 6:45 in the Ball 
Room. 

The proposed changes to be 
submitted to Executive Council 
tonight are: 

1.) "CLOSING HOURS — cnange 
to midnight on weeknights and 
2:00 on weekends. Add a clause 
which states that a girl may 
stay out one hour after the clos- 



ing hour if she arranges for an- 
other student to wait up for 
her. 

2. ) OVERNIGHTS — abolish lim- 
ited overnights for freshmen, 
but retain regulation requiring 
freshmen to remain on campus 
overnight for the first two weeks. 

3. ) LIGHTS OUT — abolish fresh- 
men lighs-out. 

4. ) OPEN HOUSE — retain the 
Sunday open house from 2-5, but 
add that individual residence 
halls may establish their own 
open house hours on weekends. 
4.) FLIP OUTS — str -»nts don't 
have to flip out unless they are 
returning to campus after 9:00 
p.m. 

6. ) SIGN OUTS — residence hall 
directors will not have to sign 
the sign-out cards. It is the 
responsibility of the students to 
make sure the data is correct. 

7. ) DATES — omit the restric- 
tion on dating local high school 
boys; and omit the necessity 
of guest cards. 

8. ) DRESS — omit dress regula- 
tions but state that neat and ap- 
propriate dress will be required 
at all times. The stress will not 
be skirts vs. slacks, but ap- 
propriate vs. inappropriate 
dress. 

9. ) TELEPHONES — campus ex- 
tensions may be used until mid- 
night every night.

Faculty Salaries, Promotion Procedure, Explained 



By CATHY DOVER 

In a recent Bullet article, it 
was stated that in the future, 
"faculty salaries will range from 
$6400 to $13,700." This pay range 
will be divided into the six teach- 
er rankings, each of which will 
be subject to yearly raise until 
the ceiling salary of the teach- 
er's ranking is reached. 

The assistant instructor, who 
is elected for a one year term by 
the Board of Visitors, has a 
salary range of $6400 to $7000, 
in which it takes three steps to 
reach the top. Instructors, who 
are also elected for a one year 
term by the Board of Visitors, 
have a four step range going from 
$7400 to $8300. The assistant 
professor, the next ranking, is 
elected for a three year term 
and has a four step salary scale 
ranging from $8600 to $9500. The 
associate or full professors are 
elected on tenure and are subject 
to removal only for just cause; 
the associate professor has a 
five step scale ranging from 
$9800 to $11,400, while the full 
professor's takes six steps and 
goes from $11,700 to $13,700. 

All promotions are subject to 
the final recommendations of the 
chairman of the department, the 
deans, and the chancellor. Such 
factors as how the teacher 
handles his teaching responsibili- 
ties, whether or not he is abreast 
of his field, and his overall per- 
formance are considered. Al- 
though teachers attain a certain 
rank and never rise any higher, 
there is no limit to 



full professors that a department 
may hold. 

When a teacher first comes 
here, his rank is determined by 
his background and experience. 
An MA is generally thought of as 
a minimum requirement for being 
a member of the faculty, and a 
graduate student could probably 
only serve as an assistant in- 
structor, where he would be a 
lab assistant or aid in the teach- 
ing of large lecture classes. If 
a teacher had his MA and some 
teaching experience, he would 
probably be hired as an instruc 
tor, and someone who had com- 
pleted a large part of the work 
toward his doctorate, might be 
hired as an assistant professor. 
According to Mr. Houston, As- 
sistant to the Chancellor, it is 
very rare that a teacher would 
be hired beyond this rank, be- 
cause the college prefers to main- 
tain and promote them itself. 

Several comparisons might be 
made among MWC, UVa, and 
Longwood, a women's college 
comparable in size to MWC. Un- 
der the division of degrees held 
by faculty, MWC has 65 doctors, 
or 47.1 per cent of its faculty, 
63 or 45.7 per cent with MA's, 9 
or 6.5 per cent with BA's, and 1 
or .6 per cent with no degree. 
The corresponding figures for 
UVa are 325 or 63.7 per cent 
with doctorates, 104 or 20.2 per 
cent with MA's, 43 or 8.4 per 
cent with BA's, and 2 or .4 per 
cent with no degree. Longwood 
has 25 or 23.1 per cent with 
doctorates, 76 or 70.4 per cent 
with MA's, 6 or 5.5 per cent 



with BA's, and none with no 
degree. 

The faculty's average number 
of years at the present institu- 
tion is nine years at MWC, seven 
years at UVa, and seven years 
at Longwood. The average nine 
month full-time teaching and re- 
search salaries are as follows: 
MWC - $9004, UVa - $11,474, 
and Longwood — $8678. At Mary 
Washington, the average nine- 
month full-time equivalent resi- 
dent teaching salaries by subject 
field are as follows: liberal arts 
— $8857, sciences - $9545, fine 
and applied arts - $9043, edu- 



cation - $9720, and home eco- 
nomics — $10,240. These last 
figures were comparable to the 
breakdowns at UVa and Long- 
wood, but they should be noted 
with the following stipulation, 
"It is quite well known that facul- 
ty salaries vary substantially 
from one subject field to another, 
generally as a result of supply 
and demand." 

Compared to all the state 
schools in Virginia, MWC is 
fourth in percentage of faculty 
with a doctorate, coming behind 
UVa, VPI, and William and Mary. 
In the average length of stay 



of the faculty at the present insti- 
tution, MWC is again fourth, Vir- 
ginia State at Petersburg, VMI, 
and VPI preceding her. In the 
average full-time nine month 
teaching and research salaries, 
MWC ranks seventh — UVA is 
first, followed by VPI, VMI, Wil- 
liam and Mary, Virginia State 
at Norfolk, and Madison. 

Comparisons with private 
schools would be interesting but 
difficult to make, as much of this 
information is either unavailable 
for private coUeges or comput- 
ed with fringe benefits, which 
distort the figures.

Fredericksburg City Council Unanimously Passes 
Resolution Approving Federal Rent Subsidy Program 



By BARBARA HALLIDAY 

A resolution approving the 
Federal Rent Subsidy program in 
Fredericksburg was passed 
unanimously by the City Council 
in a specially called session on 
Tuesday night. The program 
would provide for new low cost 
housing units to be built and for 
the Federal government to sub- 
sidize up to 70 per cent of the 
rent for qualified families. No 
local funds are required, but in 
order for a community to partici- 
pate in the program, a resolution 
of approval by the governing body 
of the community is needed. Dr. 
Stacey Lloyd, chairman of the 



public interest committee, re- 
ported the committee's approval 
of the resolution. Lloyd said he 
felt that the program will help 
provide a better environment 
"for those in the gray area be- 
tween the welfare rolls and the 
affluent society . . . Hopefully 
the self-esteem of these border- 
line citizens wiU take them into 
productive and contributing citi- 
zens. Society is not improved so 
much by those who have succeed- 
ed as by those who are striving 
to succeed." 

The resolution was proposed 
by Rev. Lawrence A. Davies, the 
only Negro Councilman, at a reg- 
ular meeting of the Council on 



April 23. Davies also asked that 
the Council establish a Freder- 
icksburg corps of Bi- racial Vol- 
unteers; this part of his proposal 
is still being considered in com- 
mittee. 

Mrs. Laura V. Sumner, mem- 
ber of the Council and Professor 
of classics at Mary Washington 
said, "What most of us, the Coun- 
cil members, resented was Rev. 
Davies desire that we act immed- 
iately on the proposal; standard 
is to place proposals such as this 
one into a committee and wait un- 
til they report on it." 

Mrs. Sumner went on to say 
that she felt that a bigger and 
more important step taken by the 



Council was the original open 
housing resolution passed in Sep- 
tember and the revisions of this 
resolution made since passage. 
She stressed the difference be- 
tween a resolution and an 
ordinance and said that until the 
opinion expressed by State At- 
torney General Button is re- 
versed, "I do not feel I could 
support an open housing ordi- 
nance because it would be going 
against the man who represents 
the official opinion of the law of 
the state of Virginia." However, 
she feels that this opinion wiU 
eventually be reversed and when 
it is she will wholeheartedly 
support an open housing ordi- 
in Fredericksburg. 




™ co Fpderal Rent Subsidy Program to the 
Councilman Davies rises to propose Federal Kern 

Fredericksburg City Council. 



Rev. Davies feels that the opin- 
ion expressed by Attorney Gen- 
eral Button does not constitute 
law; therefore he believes that 
the Fredericksburg City Council 
could pass an open housing ordi- 
nance at any time. 

In speaking about the resolu- 
tion approving the Federal Rent 
Subsidy program in Fredericks- 
burg, Rev. Davies said, "If the 
resolution had not been passed 
we could have gone no further." 
Although many argue that since 
Congress has not yet appropriat- 
ed funds for the project this res- 
olution has not accomplished any- 
thing concrete, Rev. Davies opti- 
mistically expects to have the 
program in operation within two 
years. Since this program must 
be sponsored by a non-profit or- 
ganization, the Shiloh Baptist 
Church and the Council on Human 
Relations will sponsor it in Fred- 
ericksburg. Rev. Davies stated, 
"Congress is expected to approp- 
riate the money in July, and we 
want to have our application 
ready when they dc."

"Imperative WHAT?" 

In closing out the '67- '68 "year of the great 
change," it is hard to relate and summarize 
all the events, near- disasters, and progressive 
strides which have been made. 

This has been a year in which the face of 
the campus has been slightly altered. It has 
been a year of re-evaluation of present struc- 
tures and procedures. With the growing com- 
plexity of the campus community, and of socety, 
old structures were found to be ineffective and, 
at times, obsolete. It is to the credit of the '67-' 68 
administrators, faculty, and students that 
archaisms were realized, and constructive solu- 
tions proposed. 

After Dean Whidden's prophetic speech on 
"The Imperative of Change" at the Fall Convo- 
cation, his words seemed to echo throughout the 
year, as every group on campus was touched in 
some way by this imperative. Students for Im- 
perative Change was perhaps the first group to 
be affected. Through their frustrations and con- 
structive action, and the foresight of SGA Execu- 
tive Committee, problems in communications and 
structure were realized, and a totally new SGA 
Constitution was the result. Changes in social 
regulations, urged by SIC, among other groups, 
are now in the process of taking effect. 

At approximately the same time, Honor Council 
members recognized the problems involved in their 
system as stated in the plaque, and began work- 
ing for revision and clarification. 

On a larger scale, students have expanded 
their concern to the imperatives of the world. 
They have demonstrated their interest by de- 
manding change in the war, the Presidency, Dow 
Chemical Company, and the racial situation, on 
campus and nationally. 

Faculty and administration have also been chal- 
langed by imperatives. They have shown flexi- 
bility by revising the Amercan Studies major 
to create a truly liberal arts education, by or- 
ganizing the five-day week and, more important, 
inviting students to participate in the planning. 
They responded to other needs by actively work- 
ing to make Mary Washington College more rele- 
vant to the racial situation. 

This college has been faced with an abund- 
ance of problems this year. Most of them have 
been recognized and met, and next year will be 
the trial for the new solutions. 

Yet there will be even more demands next 
year. The pass-fail system, a summer or week- 
end tutoring program, no hours for seniors, further 
expansion of the summer school session, estab- 
lishment of an Asian Studies major, a re-eval- 
uation of graduation requirements, co-education, 
more emphasis on independents study - these 
are all topics under discussion now, and should 
be resolved within the next few years. 

This college has a future, and a very excit- 
ing one. It has been stimulating this year to be 
in the midst of such flux, and next year will be 
even more rewarding to see the changes become 
realities. We have a committment to see that 
these changes succeed, and a committment to 
work for higher goals. We owe it to ourselves 
not to miss one minute of it.

Dear Editor: 

We wish to call to the atten- 
tion of the rising sophomore 
class their candidate for Sopho- 
more president: Miss LynnRais- 
or. If Lynn should be elected 
for next year, and we hope that 
she will, the so-called sopho- 
more slump will soon become a 
thing of the past. 

As Legislative-Vice President 
of Virginia Hall, Lynn has ex- 
hibited her natural ability as an 
executive leader. What's more, 
the enthusiasm she has shown 
for such an office this year is 
sure to be extended to her up- 
coming responsibilities asSopho- 
more Class President. Lynn's 
idea is to stress person-to-per- 
son contact via such means as a 
special class newsletter to be 
distributed once or twice a month 
to each sophomore. She would 
also have a special recruiting 
committee formed for reaching 
out to those members of the class 
who would enjoy being involved 
in class and class council proj- 

3CtS. 

Lynn's dedication to her class- 
mates as well as to her studies 
merits reward, in addition to our 
obligation to keep this girl work- 
ing for us. Lynn is full of enthus- 
iasm and sparkle. Vote Raisor for 
Sophomore Class President - 
the opportunity and obligation to 
elect a well-qualified person is 
ours.

Dear Editor: 

We would like to protest a 
condition which seems trivial to 
everyone but the Director of Dor- 
mitories. We refer to the re- 
striction against the placing of 
tape on doors. 

For some time our door has 
been covered with various poli- 
tical posters. This morning, in a 
surprise visit from our Head 
Resident, we were told in no un- 
certain terms that we were "not 
to forget the fact that Jefferson 
Dormitory inhabitants are not 
allowed to use tape on walls, 
woodwork, or doors" (what else 
is there - windows 09 ?). 

It is understandable that there 
is a restriction against tape on 
the walls, as the paint is probably 
so cheap that it would peel, 
bless its heart. The door, on 
the other hand, is an unpaint- 
ed surface which tape could not 
possibly deface. Last year, as 
inhabitants of Russell Dormitory, 
we were allowed the use of any 
type of tape on the doors and art 
tack on the walls. Why, we might 
ask at the risk of being pre- 
sumptuous, is Jefferson not al- 
lowed the same privilege rather 
than being discriminated against? 
Need we point out that other 
Dormitories enjoy similar pri- 
vileges - even those which have 
painted doors? 

We realize that our Head Resi- 
dent was only executing and en- 
forcing the rules arbitrarily and 
unjustifiably made at G. W. How- 
ever, with the rigidity of appear- 
ance of most rooms in an insti- 
tution, the injection of posters 
etc. are the only means left to 
create individuality and personal- 
ity in a community which charges 
$1200 for rental services both

Dear Editor: 

We feel that the picture 
and caption in the April 15th 
issue of the Bullet, which indi- 
cated the absence of the class 
presidents of the sophomore and 
senior class in Executive 
Council meetings, was an un- 
called-for editorial comment on 
the part of the Bullet staff. It 
lacked the constructive criti- 
cism, which the Bullet usually 
exhibits; in addition, it was poorly 
timed, considering that next 
year's class presidents will be 
elected within one month. 

This comment was a poor re- 
flection upon Executive Council, 
and it over-rated the responsibil- 
ity of class presidents to that 
council, in that it indicated that 
a good class president is judged 
solely upon her attendance at 
Executive Council meetings. 

We as individuals feel that the 
role of class president encom- 
passes far more than attendance 
at Executive Council 

Sincerely, 

CARTER STUBBS, hall pres., 
Ball 

BETSY WITMER, hall pres.,

TONI RADLER, hall pres.,

Dear Editor, 

Since candidates for next year's 
Class of '71 offices cannot make 
use of buzz sessions, speeches, 
or platform statements to ex- 
press their views, we would like 
to use the BULLET to tell fresh- 
men about Judy O'Donoghue, can- 
didate for class president. 

Judy would like to see the 
class become a vital, dynamic 
part of every student's life. With 
the shift in duties under the new 
constitution, Judy feels that the 
class organization will be freed 
to tap unused resources, energy 
and ideas. She hopes to make 
the class an instrument for 
achieving what her classmates 
want, and working jointly with 
the Class Council it can be a 
powerful instrument. She wants 
class activities to be important, 
f ui"i j <incl bonGficisil, &nd she is 
full of ideas on how to accomplish 
this. As Elections Chairman of 
Virginia this year, she has shown 
herself to be hard-working, en- 
thusiastic, and efficient. 

We think Judy has all the quali- 
ties necessary to make the class 
more unified, more dynamic, 
more meaningful and more effec- 
tive. Thank you.

By SUSAN WAGNER 




The Bullet staff has a dream 
an idealistic dream of freedom 
and equality for all. But, the 
Bullet staff doesn't feel that ideal- 
ism need necessarily be passed 
off always as a "dream." So, 
this semester we have spoken 
out. We have, in our editorials, 
urged complete non-discrimina- 
tion in all areas of Mary Wash- 
ington — recruitment, admis- 
sion, housing. Here, in our aca- 
demic community enclosed in its 
brick wall, we felt that we could 
help solve a problem tearing our 
country apart. Because we are 
young and idealistic. Because we 
believe. 

It is because we believe so 
strongly in what we are fighting 
for that the pen has again been 
lifted to voice an opinion on this 
matter. But, this time, the ap- 
proach is different. This time we 
plead not only "our" cause at 
Mary Washington, but we plead 
the nation's cause. It must be 
so. 

To accomplish this, this writ- 
er finds it necessary to abandon 
orthodox journalistic technique 
for column writing and simply 
relate a personal experience. 

Last weekend, while waiting 
for a bus on a Washington street, 
I was approached by a well- 
dressed, middle-aged, slightly 
drunk Negro man and we began 
talking. He told me he had a 
masters degree and seemed 
quite intelligent. 
He invited my companion and me 
to join him for a cup of coffee, 
which we did. While having our 
coffee, a sudden change came 
over the man and he began to 
speak violently and hostilely about 
the race situation in America. 
When he spoke about Martin Lu- 
ther King, he began to cry, say- 
ing the white people had killed 



his personal hero. He cried for 
a long time, while we sat there 
feeling uncomfortable, witness- 
ing his private sorrow. A police- 
man asked him to leave because 
he was disturbing the other cus- 
tomers and the black man asked 
us to go with him. We returned 
to the bus stop and continued our 
conversation. Fluctuat- 
ing between total, violent mad- 
ness and apologetic quiet, he 
proceeded to compare 
America to an unfaithful 
woman. He said, "When a wo- 
man is faithful to a man who 
loves her, he'll do anything for 
her; when she's unfaithful, he 
wants to kill her. America's 
been like an unfaithful woman 
to the black people and they're 
ready to strike her down." 

All of a sudden, he became 
extremely violent and began 
screaming that he hated me and 
my friend and didn't care what 
happened to us, and in his rage, 
he hit me in the face. When he 
realized what he'd done, he be- 
gan to apologize frantically, but 
genuinely, and then he touched my 
face softly, slid down to his 
knees clutching my raincoat, and 
cried. With his whole soul, he 
cried — because he hated me 
and my white skin and my whole 
race, and he really didnt want 
to hate anybody. 

The conversation ended with 
his thanking us for being "tole- 
rant" of his behavior and not 
getting mad, and for just stand- 
ing on the street talking to him. 
"You dont know what this means 
to me," he said. 

Nothing has affected me so 
much in a long time and nothing, 
in all my years of civil rights 
crusading, has brought me so

Y-R' s Plan 
For Future 



At the last meeting of the 
Young Republicans, of 
ficers for next year were elect- 
ed. Margaret Lawrence was 
elected Chairman. 

The other newly elected of- 
ficers are: Vice Chairman, Marty 
Blair; Treasurer, Nikki Fowler; 
Recording Secretary, Linda 
Cobb; Corresponding Secretary, 
Joan Mysiak. 

Bari Holden, the present 
Chairman described the aims 
for the Club next year: "The 
main focus of attention in plan- 
ning a general program for next 
year should be directed toward 
a greater involvement in com- 
munity service. The main acti- 
vities of the Club this year have 
been directed toward our ser- 
vice to those activities dealing 
specifically with Young Repub- 
licans themselves, such as the 
Page Young campaign and sev- 
eral regional and state confer- 
ences and conventions. Now we 
should work to round ourselves 
out and make ourselves known

for community service as well." 

The many awards that were 
presented Thursday evening are 
testimony to the work of the 
Young Republicans. Marty Blair 
and Nikki Fowler received 
awards for their work in re- 



cruiting MWC republicans into 
the Club. The Young Republicans 
themselves received several 
commandations for their out- 
standing efforts from various 
state and regional organizations. 
Also at the meeting a rec- 



ommendation that the Young 
Republicans contribute as a club 
to the Dr. Martin Luther King, 
Jr. Scholarship came under much 
lively discussion and was finally 
placed in the hands of the Exe- 
cutive Board for further action.

NEW YORK - Student body 
presidents and campus news- 
paper editors from more than 
500 colleges have condemned the 
war as "immoral and unjust" 
and said they believe they 
"couldn't be forced to fight" 
in Vietnam. 

The signatures of about 640 
student presidents and editors 
from 49 states appeared in the 
April 28 edition of the Sunday 
New York Times in a four-page 
ad. The signers represent most 
of the major colleges and uni- 



versities in the United States 
Signers from 11 Virginia col- 
leges were represented on the 
petition, including Mary Wash- 
ington College editor, Liz Van- 



The Rev. Robert M. Hundley, 
who gathered the signatures for 
Clergy and Laymen Concerned 
About Vietnam, said most of the 
signers "have not been active in 
anti-war activity heretofore." 

Hundley, a student at Union 
Theological Seminary, added, 



Religion Department To 
Add New Professor 



"Many of the student leaders who 
have signed this statement recog- 
nize that they may be placing 
their future careers in jeo- 
pardy." He said they may face 
"punitive action" by the "capri- 
cious Selective Service System." 

Hundley has been talking to 
student leaders during the past 
several months. But he said the 
statement itself did not mater- 
ialize until after the present 
negotiation efforts had begun. 
"Many students want to empha- 
size their opposition to the con- 
tinuing immorality of the war." 



Vietnam 



The Rev. William Sloane Cof- 
fin, the Yale chaplain who is 
under indictment for counseling 
draft resistance said the peti- 
tion "should serve to remind 
Americans everywhere that the 
war in Vietnam is not over, that 
Americans and Vietnamese boys 
are still dying." 

The Rev. Richard Fernandez, 
head of Clergy and Laymen, said 
the students were "echoing the 
words of our late co-chairman, 
the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King 
who repeatedly called the war in 
Vietnam unjust and immoral."

MWC Production of 
'The Ungrateful Man' 
Seen As Unsuccessful 
Dramatic Fairytale 



ARTS PAGE 



By PATTI SCHMIEG 
The natural setting of the am- 
phitheatre provided an unusual 
backdrop for David Horsburgh's 
"The Ungrateful Man," directed 
by Mrs. Joy Michael and pro- 
duced by the Drama Department 
on Friday, April 19, and Satur- 
day, April 20. The sensuous sitar 
music, the lavishly decorated 
costumes, expert make-up, and 
colorful wedding dances contri- 
buted to the other-world atmos- 
phere of a small South Indian 
village circa 900 A.D. 

The play's transparent plot 
and trite dialogue were some- 
what compensated for by the 
contagious enthusiasm with which 
the children — both on stage and 
in the audience — threw them- 
selves into the drama of Brah- 
min Yagnamurthi (Robert Koh- 
ler), wandering through the forest 
in search of gold and escaping 
the wily tactics of the ungrate- 



ful goldsmith, Suvannaka (Ken- 
neth Allen), whom he had res- 
cued from a deep well. Jo Sy- 
denstricker as the Sutradhara 
(Director and Stage Manager), 
used her narrative role most 
effectively in setting the pace 
of the play and creating an oc- 
casional moment of suspense. 
Mary James' choreography in- 
stilled a germ of taut conflict 
in the vividly contrasting dances 
of the Rocks and the Water- 
Spirits. 

The fairy-tale aspect of the 
play emerged through the ani- 
mals — who seemed to be, along 
with the children, the more re- 
laxed, natural actors. The Tiger 
(Marilee Petri), employed vocal 
expression quite interestingly in 
her characterization; the mon- 
keys were delightfully comic; 
and the snake (Firmalee Kap- 
lan) was an example of sheer 
artistry. 




The ampitheater provided setting for Drama Department play. 



Unfortunately, "The Ungrate- 
ful Man," with all of its shim- 
mering color, did not succeed 
as a dramatic fairytale. Many 
of the actors were too self-con- 
scious — merely going through 
the motions of their roles. Some 
exceptions were the humorously 
pompous Prime Minister (Fred 
Franklin) and the three secre- 
taries. Too often, the writ- 
ten dialogue sounded forced, and 



the play dragged on — mercifully 
relieved by the adept narration 
of Sutradhara. As an example 
of an Indian folk tale, complete 
with costumes, dances, and mu- 
sic, the production was quite 
entertainingly authentic. As a 
dramatic children's fantasy, 
which deserves as much respect 
as any other theatrical form, 
"The Ungrateful Man" left much 
to be desired. 



Atmosphere of Theatre Accentuates 'Comedy of Errors' 



By NANCY STEVENSON 
The National Repertory Com- 
pany is currently presenting 
Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors 
at the Ford's Theater in Wash- 
ington. The atmosphere of the 
theater lent an aura of history 
to the production, and the audi- 
ence, dazzled by the perform- 
ance, forgot the slight discom- 
fort of the hard-backed chairs. 

Playing the part of Dromio 
in this comedy of mistaken iden- 
tity, Geoffrey Garland, a versa- 
tile actor trainedatthe Questor's 
Theater in London, turned in an 
excellent performance and gave 
a sparkle to the otherwise slow- 
moving first act. 



Patricia Guinan and Anne Dra- 
per, the two actresses taking the 
female leads, were weak both in 
character portrayal and in voice 

projection. 

The acoustics of the theater 
are not the best, although as 
members of the repertory com- 
pany, the actors should be able 
to adapt themselves to such con- 



ditions. The elaborate costumes 
and setting in Old Ephesus, a 
seaport in Asia Minor were im- 
pressive. 

The second act moved faster. 
Sparked by the delightful per- 
formances of Paul Collin and 
Ellen Holly, playing respectively 
the conjuror and the courtesan, 
the comedy mo -ed to a rapid 



solution of the mistaken identi- 
ties. 

The plan for the restoration 
of Ford's Theater was conceived 
by the Secretary of the Interior, 
Stewart L. Udall. His vision of 
a living memorial to Abraham 
Lincoln has made available a 
national shrine and museum 
unique in its opportunities.

The MWC Dance Company per- 
formed "Brahms Waltzes" at 
the Mid-Atlantic Region of the 
National Dance Guild's festival at 
Gallaudet College in Washington 
on Saturday. 

Choreographed by Charles 
Weidman, it consisted of various 
movements of falls, and feet, 
and walks. The Company has per- 
formed it here at their Spring 
Program in recent weeks. 



Dances were performed by ten 
college and university troupes, 
and judged according to perform- 
ance by a professional critic. 
The objective of the festival was 
to allow students to learn from 
the objective criticism of their 
own performance and by watch- 
ing that of other colleges. This 
year any interested college was 
invited to participate. It is hoped 
that next year proper judges may 



be hired so there may be a screen- 
ing process first, and several 
performances when the festival 
takes place in March. 

Claudia Read of Mary Washing- 
ton College is chairman of the 
new Mid-Atlantic region. She is 
aided by Maida Withers, also of 
MWC, and faculty members of 
Hollins, Hampton Institute, and 
Gallaudet as members of her exe- 
cutive committee.

Initial Columbia Protest Concerns Gym Building 



NEW YORK (CPS) - In the 
wake of the forcible eviction of 
student protestors from five Co- 
lumbia University buildings, this 
week, student government lead- 
ers and a considerable number 
of faculty members called for a 
general strike against the uni- 
versity. 

Dan Pelligram, president ot 
the student council, issued the 
call for the strike Tuesday after 
about 1,000 New York City police 
had arrested more than 700 pro- 
testors in an early morning raid. 

More than 100 demonstrators 
were treated for injuries as a 
result of police action, and there 
were wide-spread reports of po- 
lice brutality. 

The police were called in by 
Columbia President Crayson 
Kirk after a week-long protest 
which resulted in the calling off 
of classes and the virtual shut- 
down of the university. Kirk had 
first threatened to call in the 
police last Friday, but strong fa- 
culty sentiment against it delay- 
ed the decision. 

The protest began with the 



take-over of Hamilton Hall, one 
of the school's two administra- 
tion buildings, last Tuesday. But 
during the week white protestors 
took over four other buildings 
while the blacks remained in 
Hamilton Hall. 

As the protest grew its focus 
changed. Originally the protest- 
ors had six demands, including 
the demand that the university 
stop construction on a new gym 
being built on a neighborhood 
park, the demand the Columbia 
break its ties with the Institute 
for Defense Analyses, a semi- 
private research firm closely 
connected with the Defense De- 
partment. 

The gym has been a sore point 
between the university and resi- 
dents of neighboring Harlem for 
several years, and Columbia's 
links with IDA have been a fre- 
quent target of demonstrations by 
Students for a Democratic So- 
ciety, which was active in orga- 
nizing the take-over of the 
school's buildings. 

After the protestors had held 
the buildings for several days, 



Askounis' Poems Will 
Appear in 'Alkahest'

a senior at Mary Washington, 
is among the undergraduate poets 
whose poems will appear in the

however, their primary demand 
was that they be granted total 
amnesty. Kirk refused to grant 
amnesty. He also refused to ac- 
cept the recommendations of a 
faculty group that all the students 
be punished alike, presumably 
with only token sanctions. 

The events at Columbia have 
already had impact well beyond 
the school's environs. In Wash- 
ington, Rep. William Ayres (R- 
Ohio), ranking Republican on the 
Hou Committee on Education 
and Labor, has asked the chair- 
man of his committee to investi- 
gate the Columbia situation. 

In a letter to the chairman, 
Rep. Carl Perkins (D-Ky.), Ayres 
suggested that student aid pro- 
grams presently under consid- 
eration by the committee ought to 
be cut if funds from it will be 
going to protesting students. 

In Stony Brook, N. Y., what 
began as sympathy demonstra- 
tions in the libray of the state 
university center there Tuesday 
night had grown into a full-fledg- 
ed sit-in by Wednesday. 

About 90 students took over the 
school's business offices and de- 
manded that the administration 
end its cooperation with the Suf- 
folk County police. They charged 
that the police have been on the 



constantly since the huge 
marijuana raid there in January. 

At Columbia, meanwhile, num- 
erous committees have sprung 
up to decide what additional action 
should be taken. A faculty com- 
mittee that includes many senior 
professors has passed a resolu- 
tion saying that the university 
should drop charges of criminal 
tresspass against the protestors. 
It has also recommended that 
disciplining of the students be 
handled by a commission that 
includes student, faculty and ad- 
ministration representatives. 

Mark Rudd, a junior who is the 
head of SDS and was the unof- 
ficial leader of the protest, said 
Wednesday that the Strike Co- 
ordinating Committee was add- 
ing the resignation of Kirk to 
its list of demands. 

He also defended the students 
who went through Kirk's files,

saying that they were "definitely 
justified" in doing so because 
Kirk had been hiding information 
from students. 

No classes were held Wednes- 
day, but there was no way of 
estimating how many students 
supported a strike because Kirk 
himself had called off classes for 
the day. Many students anticipate 
that classes will be called off 
for the rest of the week, and 
that the strike will be undercut 
as a result. 

Nevertheless, student opinion 
seemed to be almost solidly op- 
posed to the administration on 
the question of the use of police.

"Games" Shows Frightening Version of Family Fun 

«. _ 1 * - — - - 1 I Ml TKrt aaIaf v\ 



"Games," the macabre story 
of two people who fall under the 
influence of a sinister and mys- 
terious woman, will be the film 
shown this Saturday, May 11, 
at 8:30 p.m. in George Wash- 
ington Auditorium. 

The fUm centers around the 
Montgomeries, a wealthy young 
couple who live in an ultra-mod 
town house in New York. The 
main room of the house is the 
game room, which contains such 
things as a shooting gallery, apin- 
ball machine, and a Victorian 



Immortality Through Electro- 
Magnetism device. One day the 
couple is visited by a middle- 
aged woman who is allegedly sell- 
ing cosmetics. When the woman 
faints during the course of the 
sale, Mrs. Montgomery puts her 
to bed and calls a doctor. As 
the days go by, the woman con- 
tinues to stay at the house. Sur- 
prisingly, she too turns out to be 
an expert at games, especially 
proficient at Russian Roulette. 
From then on, the games they 
play, innocent at first, become 



less and less funny until, finally, 
under the influence of the strange 
woman, the Montgomeries invent 
a deadly new game and the wife 
is slowly driven out of her mind. 

Naturally, the movie is athrill- 
er, and even though it might be 



easy to guess the final outcome, 
there are some tense moments 
while waiting for it to occur. 
James Caan and Katherine Ross, 
who play the Montgomeries, are 
capable actors, but it is Simone 
Signoret as the mysterious wo- 
man who is the real star of the 



show. The color photography is 
especially good, and the unusual 
house is also entertaining. 

True, the film contains no real 
heroes and no trace of a theme, 
but it is designed to scare, and 
it is generally felt that this movie 
fulfills its purpose admirably.

close to the pitiful realities of 
what racism can do to an in- 
telligent man. 

This black man screamed, he 
screamed out his soul and I 
feared for America. His face 
became so distorted with hate, 
it was unrecognizable and I feared 
for America. This man clung to 
my coat and cried and I wept 
and feared for America. His 
America and Mine. 

He was drunk and probably 
lying, yet I feared, because I 
knew what he felt and I knew what 
it will all eventually bring. Thou- 
sands of black people wanting to 
strike America down. And who 
would blame them — what have 
they got to lose? Certainly not 
their human dignity. Some will

wonder why I've taken the space 
to tell this story and for those 
who do wonder, I don't imagine 
anything I can say will make 
them understand. 

With all our talk about civil 
rights, can we really under- 
stand the problem until we've 
encountered a broken man face 
to face? But, more important, we 
must ask ourselves if we can do 
anything about it or can we only 
talk "big talk" and dream "big 
dreams"? 

The Bullet chooses the for- 
mer course and I will continue 
to act where possible and speak 
out wherever necessary. Because 
we believe that the majority of 
white America are not racists 
and that when made aware of 
the human problems — problems 
of the soul; hot only the econo- 
mic and social problems — that 
they will choose the same course. 
We believe. We hope. A person 
has to.

the police to clear the buildings 
added to the anti-administration 
sentiment. 

One such report came from 
Tom Messi, a reporter for the 
Columbia radio station. He 
described what had happened 
when the police entered Fayer- 
weather Hall, where he had join- 
ed a group of protestors who 
planned to offer passive resis- 
tance. 

"I was third in line," Messi 



said. "The first two students 
were dragged out by the hair. 
Then I was grabbed by the hair 
and pulled up. I was kicked sev- 
eral times. In the hall I tried to 
get up and walk, but I was sur- 
rounded by police and couldn't." 

On Wednesday, there were 
sporadic demonstrations around 
the university including an at- 
tempt by several hundred stu- 
dents to block the entrances to 
the central part of the campus. 
Many other students, however,

along with a large number of

in meetings called to plan further 
action.

the name of Dr. Donald E. Glover

The MWC Lacrosse Team fin- 
ished the season with an astound- 
ing victory, defeating Bridge- 
water 14 to 3. Pat Akers scored 
seven goals, and Lynn Davis 
scored three. 

Winning this final game gave 
the team 2 wins and only one loss 
for the season. They defeated 
Westhampton 8 to 5, with Jackie 
French scoring 5 of the 8 goals. 
Their only loss was to William
