Then over the years, it grows rich in the intangibles, the :purely human contributions and experiences that give tio the cold stone a personality and warmth all its own. This is the birth of Tradition. There is ample tradition at jefferson, and it comes in many forms. To some, it's the Cranford or St. Mary's game, to others it's the memorial in the Hall honor- ing jefferson's war dead. To some, it's the little jokes about wood shop and 'Battin and the john, to others, it's the awards assemblies and the Color Guard and the auditorium itself. Many of us, lost in the drudgery of the day's routine, have taken our three years journey through jeff without becom- ing at all aware of its rich tradition. The Teejay Staff is hopeful that these few words will lead our fellow members of the Class of '65 to discover some of jeffs wealth, and to let it enrich them. It is in this hope that the '65 Teejay is keynoted simply by the school seal, symbolizing a reaffirmation of the values and ideals of jefferson High.

The Class of 1965. As sophomores we were to be duly rewarded for our meri- torious entrance, our boost to the school economy, and our radiant spirit. Yes, and for these qualities we were gra- ciously awarded 'Soph Daze': baby foods for lunch, peanut pushing and push-ups as supplementary physical fitness pro- grams, and recitations of nursery rhymes to insure the cogni- zance and retention of such literary masterpieces. Andrew Paterna, class president, along with the other ofhcers and Mrs. Katherine Reilly, class advisor, coordinated their efforts to plan the various activities in which the class successfully participated. The "Last Chance Dance," the only major social function to succeed by any class that year was well attended and enjoyed. 'Later that year, the J.S.O. spon- sored Jefferson's first talent show. It was a smashing success, but ironically was never to be held again. A pleasant summer vacation quickly passed and no sooner did we settle down to work when we were enriched by a new addition to jeEerson's expressionist movement, The Quid magazine. This literary-art periodical received top -honors in national competition, but was challenged with even tougher opposition when Ronald Adler assumed the major responsibilities of the Monlicello Timer. A sunny day in November suddenly turned overcast when one looked across to City Hall and saw the national flag being lowered to halfmast. Mr. Abner West, school principal, solemnly announced that President John F. Kennedy had been killed in Dallas by an assassin's bullet. Individuals slipped to silence and thus prayed for a man, a legend, and a dream, and something not quite understandable . . . The second marking period ended with a casual statistical warning from Mr. Abe Benjamin, guidance counselor, that we still had another two marking periods till june. He urged us to keep abreast of our homework assignments and so with the onset of the New jersey Tercentenary many subject teachers took advantage of the occasion and urged their students to hand in numerous essays on the historical event. Elizabeth was also celebrating its tercentenary and jeffrey Yohay mutually celebrated when he won two thousand dol- lars by writing about Elizabeth's role in the Revolutionary War. ' A Hootenany followed and jefferson's first community sing sponsored by the Youth Good Neighbor Council proved to be a welcome change. The whole idea of singing in the cafeteria wasn't a new innovation to jeffmen. But, as it was later discovered, the co-ed scenery, which also sang, was what really made the occasion so distinct. On a cool March Saturday junior scholars were admin- istered the National Merit Qualifying Tests. Of all the mathematical geniuses, English essay contest winners, de- bators, journalists, historians, and foreign language whizzes, only one student proved to be a true scholar. Richard Brown, athlete, attained a semi-finalist rating. Spring came and as the weather started to warm up suffi- ciently to let tops come off cars, Jeffmen began selling chocolate candies. Customers were sternly urged to let the candy melt in their mouths and not in their hands, however revenues proved that the event was very successful. As a dedication to the distinguished career of Mr. Harold Vogt, the Spring Concert was a musical masterpiece. Junior Glee Club members were fortunate to have had as their director such at dedicated leader and musical scholar for two pleasant and productive years. The very elegant junior Prom, set in Venetian style in the Jefferson cafeteria, highlighted the social season. All couples arrived at their social best while their unruffled teachers displayed their own social disposi- tions. Election time rolled around for a third ballot and seniors showed typical political determination when Andy Natelson was elected Qby machine ballotj to the presidency of the lI.S.O.g Gary Ries was elected president of the Key Clubg George Teshu to the top position of the National Honor Society, and Mike Capezza to the office of senior class president. Tbe Quid returned for a second year with Robert Libkind coaching a fine team. Steven Kushner, lineman, found that only red ink would be appropriate to denote his play on words. No one knows exactly who was editor of the M.T., but none-the-less it still kept in print, faithfully. Due rec- ognition should be given to Ira Fischler and Richard Hauser for their fine work in coordinating the TEE IAY. An underdog football tea-ri showed typical Jefferson de- termination when they put on the steam and in three suc- cessive weeks sterilized Princeton, Edison, and Trenton. The excellent 7-2 record was climaxed with the vhair-raising Thanksgiving Day game. Students celebrated the pigskin victory by devouring roast turkeys and trimmings until only the wishbone remained - and looking at its symmetry, the complexities of college ad- missions did not appear far away. Several hectic weeks which followed were blended with catalogues, typed forms, recom- mendations, transcripts, and not to mention the granddaddy of them all . . . the college boards. A new format for the Christmas pageant and an ice cream treat sponsored by the class cabinet for youngsters at the Egenolf Day Nursery highlighted the holiday season. Shakes- peare came to Elizabeth and the jefferson auditorium stage when the J. S. O. contracted for the production of the "Taming of the Shrew." Seniors challenged the faculty to an- other basketball game and a capacity crowd witnessed a host of faculty mentors succumb to spectacular senior teamwork. The senior prom, class night and graduation all took place in one hectic, enjoyable and thought-filled week. 'But of all these events graduation had the most meaning, for looking back one saw one event following the next, one challenge following its predecessor, one thougiht migrating from the impulse, and one answer following the thought. And looking back one saw that Jefferson was not just something made of cement and brick, but a place to meet new people and breed new ideas. For a small few jefferson had no meaning, but for most it offered an environment for the development of character and thought, and for the Class Of 1965 three very pleasant and meaningful years.

In a game between unbeaten and unscored-upon teams, Jefferson handed New Brunswick its only loss of the season 7-6 on the quagmire of Willianas Field. In the next game, Union, also undefeated, came from a 12-0 deficit to score 14 points in the second half to hand jefferson its first loss of theseason. But the Minutemen re- bounded with jefferson's biggest victory in three Years, by handing Planifield its only loss of its season 14-12, jeffer- son's last victory against Plainfield was in 1954, ten years ago. The following Saturday, against an imp-rroved Linden eleven, the Minutemen tried to come back in the second half, but fell short and suffered their second loss of the season 14-13. After returning to the victory road via a 20-6 victory over Woodbridge, the Minutemen started to build up their ap- petites for Cranford on Thanksgiving Day. After a score- less first half jefferson returned the second half kickoff 88 yards to pay dirt to secure a 6-0 lead, Cranford retaliated by marching 72 yards to tie the score at 6-6. In the fourth period Cranford blocked a jefferson punt and the ball bounced out 'of the end zone for a 2 point safety and an 8-6 Cranford lead. As thousands of dedicated jefferson fans watched in awe, the Minutemen completed a thrilling 85 yard drive by scoring from the one yard line with 18 seconds left in the game to win 12-8. The main reason for jeffersons most successful 7-2 mark was not fonly the outstanding :play of such senior stalwarts as All-County Halfback Larry "Chunky" Coleman, All- County End Charles Komar, Andy Paterna, Richard Salrov, joe Engesser, Gunther Graham, Mike Tancibok, Mike Tabor, Fred Gasior and Charles Brown, but it was the unity and high spirit throughout the 'football seas-on of the entire football family, including coach, trainer, manager and every player.

Q , 'U' ' 65 I SOCCER An athletic team may be county champions one year and then falter the next season for a number of reasons. The soccer squad illustrated the quality this season. Wfith only a handful of varsity lettermen returning, Coach Herman Kassel had to build a new team of sophomores and juniors many of whom had never played be- fore. At first they lost harshly but in each game there was something new to learn and the invaluable game experi- ence was beneficial to all. Towards the end of the sea- son, the team managed to win or tie several games and those games lost were by narrow scores. The final record was 3-9-2 but it was not a real in- dication of their ability. The players had the desire to learn and the knowledge that next year would bring a new sea- son. in 5 ""' ' J4":aHi' .+4'- N I W xr K Aj QQ!

Pedagogues have discovered, however, that progressive ed- ucation and its liberal connotations have not been too successful. John Dewey's models of progressive learning were failures. Students must be guided and commanded, as it were, by a method that is both an inspiration to the student and a guarantee that he will accumulate knowledge. Potential brainpower that lies dormant will be of no use to either the individual or those around him: the gray matter the students possess must be forced to operate. A progressive course in English would be open to censure for this same reason. If English classes were to be abolished, as some educators have suggested, and a different type of intellectual provocation were to be provided the amount of knowledge that a student would accrue from four years of high school English would be hinged on the initiative and free will of the individual. Education would depend on the desire to learn. Some dedicated students would benefit by this. But with the abolition of grades or rewards for the long hours of study required, the more indifferent students would be re3nctant to read sufficiently or much less at all, for it is competition and recognition for services gendered that keep the wheels of society, and education rolling. Why, then, should one read and gain knowledge if he will not 7 reap the material reward of a high grade or proficiency certificate. Human materialistic inclinations are the deterrants of progressive education. While some students would be voracious readers, others would sit idly contemplating some more materialistic episode within their private realm. This is not to say that education cannot be improved. Authoritative measures would have to blend with an all im- portant human characteristic: INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY. Given a certain amount of freedom in selection of studies, the student would also have the guiding hand of the teacher to secure accomplishment and reward for work completed, If a school were to adopt a new policy differing from liberalism and regimentation but blending the two, the results would be successful. Of ten college preparatory English classes in a high school there is usually one honors class, three fairly productive and potent classes and six mediocre classes which are composed of students more interested in going to Junior and Teachers colleges in the ensuing years. By taking the four more capable groups of college minded adolescents and separating them, one could weed out the intelligence on hand. The teacher in charge would require one novel which he assigns individually to the student to read weekly. At the end of the week the student would be tested and given a grade on the book. The next requirement would be to have each student responsible for reading four books of his choice by the end of the month. Subjective and objective testing would be given to the student. He would also be responsible for turning in separate reviews on the material. Thus a student is required to read eight books per month. What sounds like a burdensome and loathsome idea would be lessened in that reading Ian Flemming's JAMES BOND novels would be as acceptable as Dante's INFERNO. By funning the full gamut in literature the student's gampe dn liferand literature would be widened considerably.

And finally, culminating the school year, the student will turn in a novel which he has been working on since September. Failure to turn in any of the assignments would allow the teacher to fail the student for the year. Since the work is extensive, grades will be allocated quite generously although not superfically and indignantly. By adding public speaking lessons and short speeches to ameliorate the stu6ent's outgoing personality, the final products of the English classes would be greatly improved. 9 ' K 127'z?',?ZfZt5Z 22 , Avpefsi Zia we Z5 by Jean-Paul Bunyan Edited by Steven Kushner 3 -- "Sh ' ?' 7 f v-if f-' " - '-f r" Ili:-3' fl ' , , nPifflen a dit l'elephante au giraffe - Saint-Simon It was the year of the anti-whale in the lemonade sea. The year that Fourier built the invisible government of city hall in remembrance to Genghis Khan. The year of the Edsel. Christian Hope had arrived at the Finland Station as a latter day Robinson Crusoe. He thought of J. Edgar Hoover's Pavlovian exercise with truth in his Summa Theologica and in particular its Fichtean sections of Joseph Stalin's master plan for the Penguin race with its implications for St. Mael of the Abbey of Yvern. Hope was an agent of the Cotton Mather truth squad of the American Doldrums Society, an agency of the C.I.A. He stepped from the train into the perfumed smog, thinking of Adam and Dorf. He sensed as he turned down the street that he was being followed by his arch-enemy, Kolakowski uthe rag of Hadesn Djilas, a mad chairwoman from Roselle. Hope had telepathic orders from Mr. Big to eat Webster's dictionary, pass himself off as the golden boy John Maynard Keynes, and then go underground until the coronation of Paul Tillich. During the sunlit hours he maintained a front in gifing away free copies of George Bernard Shaw's play uPygmalionn with particular social passages underlined. Christian Hope would spend his evenings reading palms and afterwards would take long walks on the right bank of the Petrograd River. The perfumed smog had clearly helped his meditations on the religious beliefs of Babboons. His mission entailed his contacting at the local Y.M.C.A. the A.D.S.'s operative, Albert Schweitzer, to write the definitive version of 7AG?.Z,5EF?.i,L,6..W, 1 ,,,,.,.M ,.,,3.,m. 7,,?.,,,. ,, H , Q. ,Y 7, .,,,: ,.,,. ,,,.,h, ALVL X , .

In one of Hope's sojourn's by the river he was struck with rectangular objects falling from the sky. He lit a match in the smog and read slowly the bold print on a paper leaflet. YOU GONNA BE BOMBED Here before his eyes and burnt fingers was clear proof of the existence and revenge of heaven. He thought of how dearly the agnostics and atheists would pay for their folly, Hope rushed home at four in the morning and began to recite aloud Milton's poem Paradise Lost till the afternoon of the next day. nThe Daily Enquirern had reported to his dismay that three South Viet Namese biplanes, diving from out of the plural moon, had dropped a million leaflets on the city. Christian Hope was determined to find the source of this evil, He took a Staten Island ferry for parts unknown. The ship had an ominous name, nThe Wooden Nickel,n and its captain was one Major Horatio Hamburger. He was father of metaphysics and other navigational sciences. The ferry itself was as . strange ,as the man who abstractly commanded its courseg , The ship had a mast and a Mickey Mouse Club sail. The captain'S cabin was located in a cloud and he rarely made appearances to those below. Major Horatio Hamburger had been an admiral in the Tibetian Navy. In 1956 he had singlehandedly annihilu ated three Viet Cong battalions, set fire to a Chinese res- taurant, and declared himself Emperor in Hershey, Pennsylvania, The bow section of the ship had a ten foot stone statue of General MacAuthur. The passengers on board were equally in need of the Rorschach test. There were cannibals from under the Bayonne bridge who worshipped the uJollyU Green Giant, a colonel Bingo who wore a hood, and a number of pro-union midget assassins. The ship itself was being driven around in circles by the horrid West wind. On the second day of the voyage the statue had grown in width to occupy half of the bow section and in height to some sixty feet. Major Horatio Hamburger was planning the final solution of the heathens on board who were making a religious idol out of his statue by painting it green. Christian Hope looked at this state of affairs as unwholesome and retired to his cabin in disgust. The third day of the voyage was indeed the most amazing as the statue had grown beyond all comprehension and was causing the ferry to sink. Christion,Hope,was.prepared,for'this eventuality as he inflated his water wings and set out to sea. He watched .X .Qi fluff ' 'Z' f2,4 11 rf . .

He drifted for days on end without seeing land, singing lemonade reveries to keep him-- self awake. On the fifth day he came to the isle of Grease. He was sure that he had come to the island of New Guinea. It was there in 1943 that he found stone age aborigines and re-established the divine right of kings. He noted that there were certain changes as the jungles were converted into Olym- Pian fields, involved in endless championships. The inhabitan ants seemed to have little time to do anything else and so their homes remained in caves. Their heads and breasts were Cnvered with a thick hair, some-frizzled and others lank: they had'beards like goats, and a long ridge of hair do n their backs and the fore-parts of their legs and feet,.butH the rest of their odies were bare, so that he might see W their skins, which were of a brown h ff colour. They had.' alas, no-tails. Christain Hope enquired abo t the base Of the South Viet Namese biplanes but no one seemed to know we EU9lish'very well. He accused.himself of making therislabd H banana republic, Bazed by events, he decided to set out A to sea again. He thought of New Harmony andpth downward vibrations.

BOBBE RY A Each day like the one before it, Meaning just as much, or less, Drowned we are in barren logic. That which means is never said. A day, a month, a year, what need Have we for that which makes us whole? For we were born as perfect mirrors, Mirrors burdened not with soul.

What is your idea of news? Reasoner All news is important, and all news is reality. THE QUID Reasoner The news is composed of events of significance or interests in what actually happened. But the change in the attitude towards it lies in the fact that it no longer has to be a statement by a prime minister or such. In the last 25 or 30 years, the reporters and the news media have learned more and more that it may be an investment of social conditions and not just reporting something that has actually happened. In other words, we don't wait for events--we try to find out what situations may lead to events. Also, my personal feeling is that news is not necessarily what you would call important, dismal, or sober. It's a reflection of life. Much of your material which you present on tele- vision is of the social commentary form. Of what type of audience are you trying to com unication to? I think that these mistakes are often artificial. I remember coming back from overseas in 1954 and they had explained to me what had happened in 1952. I can say that I was personally for Adlai Stevenson, but the trouble was that he was way over the heads of the average guy. This would be said to me by professors, milkmen, THE QUID: Reasoner THE QUID Reasoner 15 and mechanics or anyone else.. Obviously, there are differences in interests and abilities to comprehend or understand but they don't fall into any pattern. We are a commeriial television news in a mass media. When I do the Sunday night news, it follows HWhat's My Linen and say half of the people who watch uWhat's My Linen stay. Well, it is silly and-pointless for me to talk to the same audience that Channel 13 might be talking to. But, this doesn't mean that you talk down, it merely means that you do it better. We have a mass audience including high brow, middle brow, and low brow. The satisfying thing is that you don't have to limit yourself for anyone. It's suprising the way things are presented clearly and without laughs, and in- telligently how much the mass audiences under- stands and what interests them. A great deal of your material is life and beyond that it is also entertainment. Would you say it is such? I would say it is not entertainment. When we use something which is light or humorous, it has to meet the basic tests. It has to cast some light on it. We might hope that sometimes we are gay, but we're not comdians. The news and life has humorous aspects. Sometimes something funny or a light way of looking at a serious thing will eliminate it in a way that only great reporting can. Does the medium of television in anyway restrict your thoughts? Any medium and any profession does, particulariy at C.B.S. We operate on pretty strict rules as far as personal editorials goes of which I approve because in a way, they give us lighter freedom, in other words, if we are denied the privilege of expressing personal opinions on the the air, this means that management is also. denied the right to tell us what to say. 4 .'.r. . -a' 1' '.

While under one management it might be nice to say whatever you wanted to, and under some other management it might be uncomfortable being told what to say. I don't think that this kind of restriction applies to television anymore than to anything else except insofar as television is so much more powerful. Any newspaper audience is selective and they can read things over and over. Television has a very wide audience with a great impact and something can hit them only once. A misunderstanding or a non-professional use of a media is much more dangerous. The basic thing with television is that it is visual. It's pictures. Does this detract from the spoken word? I think that you have a misconception. It has been a common one in television. Over the first 15 years in its development, they assumed that it was basically visual and so they said, in effect, never mind the writing, we're going to get the pictures.n I think they have realized more and more in recent years that the content in news programs has to be just as good as it is in any other medium, and sometimes the pictures are just not available to do what you want. At that point, you rely entirely on the writing. I think that when we have the pictures, the writing can make them work. Bad writing can make them useless. What do you feel is the importance of news in today's world? Well, it would be hard to think of anything more important so far as social mankind is concerned. Obviously, great changes are taking place and great decisions are being made. Decisions made on the basis of wide information are more apt to be proper or correct than decisions made without wide knowledge or proper understanding. News in the way it does its job, is in its infancy and has many faults, but it's about the only chance you have. THE QUID REASONER: THE QUID: REASONER: THE QUID REASONER: , 17 There has been a great deal of talk about managed news. To what extent does news reflect reality? We rely on sources such as the U.P.I. to some extent, but I usually rely on our own staff. I think there are some faults in American news, but on the whole, I think it does a pretty good job and it is learning. News is managed to the extent that people who want to manage it are permitted to. There is always a basic antagonism between the reporter and the news source. You can't get rid of it. You can have friendly relations with a government official, or a businessman, or a chief of police, but you can't be buddies because you are in conflict. Of course, officials want to manage the news. About a year ago, there was a newspaper strike, and the effect upon news was that it seemed to have gained a much more broader aspect. They started reporting about movies and theatre events more than they were doing before. What effect did this have? It seemed more a change in the attempts at broadcasting. I think its chief effect was to show that there was an audience for this kind of thing. A good many of the things that t.v. did as a public service while there were no newspapers stayed Oh. That was the time that Channel 2's night time news was permanently from ten to twenty minutes. It showed there are a lot of things t.v. could do what it hasn't been doing. Does the commercial aspect of television dominate or put sort of limitations on what you can show on your program? Not as C.B.S. No. I think this is probably just like newspapers. If you studied journalism, you know there is a long history of the question of whether advertisers dominate newspapers. The studies indicate that if you have a strong newspaper which is in demand, it's the advertisers which need the newspapers and not vice versa.

THE QUID: Re as One! 1 The same thing is true with television, C.B.S. is an advertising service. Advertisers are interested in selling things. They want to go to the place that will sell the most things. If that is what you have, and you have a strong network or a strong station, theggare not go-ing to to interfere'-Eny m01:eA'aE?i5i1 Eiyou want them with the news. You don't want. sponsors, you want advertisers. It is in a very fair way. If you're going to do a report on Cuba, you don't want a company sponsoring you which has interests in Cuba, but who is concerned about it and not carried away. What is your biggest problem when out on assign- ents, no matter what type of program it is? One of the biggest single problems is mechanical, In other words, if you can write with a pencil and talk to somebody, you can get alot of impres- sions. You can assess his sincerity and a lot of other things that a good reporter will do. To get that on film or tape, can be a major problem. There is a principle in science which says, UThe act of observing a phenomenon, changes the phenomenon? and this is particularly true in television concerning a camera on a politician You have to find ways to get a report that turns out honest and important while you're using equip- ment that makes the people or events connected with the news highly conscious of what you are doing. The content is more important that the Pictures. You said that the event is usually the coverage. This is bound to be quite true especially to our high officials that minor illnesses are covered as strong as a major disaster, in some cases, Do you feel that news goes too far in instances such as this? I think we have a fantastic setup in the United States of the resources and the communications and everything else.

V 19 is magnificent in that it gives out more accurate information in less time than anything in history. But on the day when nothing is happening, there is the problem of using all of this. Then I think you get over-coverage of this sort of thing. But the answer to that is not to dismantle the apparatus -- it is to discover ways of doing the background news and the situations rather than the events in a more meaningful way. V THE QUID: The news often repeats itself. How does this happen and why will it continue to happen? I guess it derives from the old saying that history repeats itself, and the only answer is to how often it's going to happen or whether it will continue. I suppose it is a question of how well we improve. I don't know who said nhistory repeats itselfu or who said that uthose who cannot learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.U From time to time, this kind of thing does change. After two periods of time in which the United States declined to participate in the tangled world affairs, we then became in: volved in two world wars. Since World War II, our policies have been different. This may be a case of whether history and the news does not have to repeat itself. Whether it is good or bad, may be a sign of change. HARRY REASONER is the Columbia Broadcasting System's chief White House correspondent in Washington. The date of the interview was Eecember, 1964. The place was the CBS Broadcast Center on West FiftynSeventh.Street in New York City. Interviewing Mr. Reasoner were Howell Strauss, Steven Kushner, and Robert Libkind of THE QUID staff. " C 1 . , . . 'nz' LQ, , wif! 1 1"- r':' '1fc , .1, I fn K 5 if Eff51:yai2EH'aE,a9 by Steven Orgel I should like to make it clear that I'd never had any intention of trying out for the Parkville High football team. Athletic participation simply doesn't appeal to me. I do, however, enjoy spectator sports, and am an ardent baseball and football fan. Now, there is one good reason why I have an apoplectic fit when someone even suggests that I trade this humble spectator status for the glories of the play- ing field. Quite frankly, I am a Class A coward, Ugh. The picture of a 6 ft. 3 in., 220 lb. brute tackling my frail, sensitive body makes me shudder with fear. The thought of striking out just when a hit is needed to bring in the crucial run is too humiliating to bear. Worse still, the painful image of getting hit in the head with the pitcher's fast ball always instills in me absolute terror. Naturally, I avoided all forms of school athletics like the bubonic plague. Therefore, imagine my surprise when I found myself in a bright blue jersey- playing on the Parkville football Squat. It was all Dad's idea, as I soon discovered. He said he had done it with my interests in mind, After all, didn't I want to go to a good college upon graduating secondary school? And didn't I concede that varsity halfback looked great on a college application? Well obviously, Dad concluded it was then essential that I play on the school football team. Dad then announced that since I agreed with his ulogic,U I wouldn't mind the liberty he had taken in signing me up before the season began. Wouldn't mind? I nearly collapsed on the spot. Nevertheless, I went out for football. Not being athletically inclined, I became what is affectionately known as a nrinkydinku - the boy who didn't quite make it, the second-e+ringer, the scrub, the irregular, the stand-by. 21 To please Dad, I turned into a conscientious member of the Parkville High Hornets, faithfully attending all practices, and loyally keeping the bench warm during each and every game. I was content with my rinkydink role, secure in the knowledge that I had enough inability not to be called upon to play in a game. For now, more than ever, I was aware of the grue- some aspects of the game of football. My day by day experiences afforded me graphic illustrations of broken bones, disfigured noses, and damaged kidneys. High school football is a rough sport. Fortunately, the season went by without any such accident happening to me. I was happily ensconced on the bench during the last game on our schedule, thinking how was not to have been put Representing a longutime was the highlight of the had been heavily favored just that. The score was 34-6 lucky I on the field, when the axe fell. Central rivalry, the contest with season. This year, though, Central to stomp all over us. They did theirs, when the fourth quarter started. Our team had been badly shaken up and the coach was removing our more battered boys right and left. He soon exhausted his standard list of subs, and looking arou2 for more replacements, spotted me, huddled up at the end of the bench, The clock was running out and the game was lost anyway, so the coach figured he had nothing to lose by put- ting me in at quarterback. Before I had a chance to protest, the referee's whistle blew, and I was pushed onto the play ng field. Pale and shaking visibly, I entered the huddle. I looked to the halfback for assurance, but he was too busy chewing gum and trying to look cut for the blonde in the third row. The fullback didn't infer any support either. he merely growled that it was my turn to run with the ball. We lined up for the next play. The ball was on our 5-yard line. I was told that there would be an opening and all I had to do was run through it. All I had to do- Hah! I could hardly keep my knees from buckling. On UZU the center f shoved the ball into my hands. Terrified, I didn't move for what seemed like several seconds. Then I heard the halfback scream, nRun, idiotln and instinctively I obeyed his order. My first impulse was to run straight towards the center opening, but when I saw a Central heavy blocking my path, I reversed direction and fled into the end-zone, my hands tightly gripping the ball. 22 Racing back, I realized the dangerous position I was in. Oh Lord! What would happen if one of those monsters got me? Thoroughly horrified by this thought, I turned and ran up the sideline as fast as I could go. At the time, I was so panicky that it never occurred to me to end the play by stepping out of bounds. Instead, still clutching the ball, I ran like a madman. In my crazed state, I did everything possible to escape each player that came near me. Whether he was a Central tackler or my own blocker didn't make any difference: I darted, weaved, reversed, spun, reversed again - just as long as I could keep out of reach. I didn't hear the crowd rcreaming, and would probably have continued running like this if I hadnit hit the Central goal post and passed out. I awoke several hours later in a hospital bed. My family was standing by and the doctor was smiling. He told me I had hit my head very hard, but there was no concussion, and I had nothing to worry about. Dad was beaming. He didn't say anything, merely pointing to the newspaper sports page with the headline, HSchool-Boy Whiz Makes 95mYard TD.n I had, according to the article, scored the most phenomenal touch- down in highschool history. Two college scouts who had watched the game came in to offer me full scholarships if I would play football for them. Despite their earnest pleas I declined. when they had gone, I told Dad I would never play football again: it was too harrowing an experience. Dad asked me why I had refused the scholarships. I explained that a rinkydink like myself could never play college football He didn!t understand until I gave him the one good reason why I could never assume the glories of the playing field. Quite frankly, I am a Class A coward. 1 - R 23 P O E T R Y SCHOOLBOY ON THE SUBWAY What can be said of an old ,man who recounts to schoolboys in subway drains the endless list of tales he has appropriately invented for the occasion: Can he be thought a lonely old bum, wit no one to talk to, or a man whose mind is full of spirit, but whose body has died: Speak kindly to oldrmgj in subways, for when you are old, and schoolboys are gone, who will be left? RICHARD NULMAN MEMORIES I remember glimpses of an eternal world, Forever meant to exist apart. Moments so pure that Had the whole angry world Been forced to listen To one aching, wistful plea, And seen the tears of truth, It would have stood there In mute wonder And been ashamed GEORGE TESHU THE SCALED STI C K Far above the endlessly rolling terrain were the pillows of heaven. And above and below them was a sky that one could see through, although it maintained a constant blue, deep blue infinity. Rays of hope spawned forth from the source of all life and death. The clouds ate some up while most of 'the li."'ht S11'.'fL2I32i'.,1 in their earthly travels. The light struck upon the hare and the fox. The trees absorbed the rays in all their royal beauty as they had done for centuries before. A frog devoured an insect. The rays turned from their invisible warmth to that of red. Sunset was nearing. The crow and the finch returned to their nests. The beasts had gone home and the fish came out of.the deep pools into the shallow cool waters. Pomp had ceased and Circumstance began. The rays were longer now and their huts took and deeper shade until they were once again invisible---this time in the deep blue of the night instead of the vibrant blue of the day. Another world gave birth once more unaware that it was repeating itself as it had for milleniums upon milleniums. The trees retired: the rest of the forest awake. A thousand stars dimly lit the facade of nature. Their light was different, they gave enough for guidance but not for sustaining life. Living sticks of scales crept slowly and unnoticed by the other creatures. The scaled stick ate the Spring Peeper. From the darkness came the red rays once again: ydhgggus 4' 1 vm wvwimfw Aww!!-'mwmHMNy wmrfvfmff rmwwfw V v Vw-wwf -wqm-qu-mm 4.11-v .3 gs Q ww wwe rw QL-yyx-my L- 'X'W"M""' ""+tf'aH-qw wif .1 , 1 X 1 ' 1 5 X 1 .

Again a life was lost and another sustained. But there was no blue, only gray that filtered the rays of hope into rays of despair. White gold poured upon the hill and the forest and the stream,.refreshing the majestic trees and the soil. Life was renewed by rain, and destroyed by the ambivalent ray. All was at peace although rest was as yet unheard of in a world of life. the 26 , SAN DBQX by George Teshu Sand is a wonderful thing. Dry sand soaks up the warm sun, and you can sit for hours with your bare feet covered up in it, absorbing the warmth. Wet sand stays the way you mold it. This is the stuff of sand castles and fortresses. No one knew this better that Peter and Peggy, two six-year olds playing in the latter's own private sandbox. It was big, of red metal, with seats around the sides. They wat next to each other in the warm, lazy afternoon sun. In the middle the sand had been carefully soaked with the garden hose. Peggy was doing her best with what looked like a sphere. Then she did a curious thing... Wham! She slammed her little fist into it, hard. nHey!u Peter was furious. He grimaced, then leapt up wildly, hhaking the sand from his clothing. nWhadya do that for?u Peggy did not hear him. She was ahsorhed in something or other hidden within the crushed sphere. She pushed some toes into it. uThat's the world.n uWhat?U UThat's the world. I know because my Daddy said so. He's a-U uOkay, I know. Go ahead.u Peter was tryinggto conceal his daily increasing humiliation at having a father who was something as abomninably dull as an office worker, instead of someone actually involved in rocketships and guided missles. He melted with envy, not devoid of a tenacious, defensive pride. Unflustered, Peggy continued. nwell, he says that today the world's going to go poof, like that.u She mystically motioned with herigipy fin w"':v:'v:1wsN'P'rnw if Y 1- w w lf- , 'wf'f?2e ib?'4fif'W"-ikwim-1' qv ff If u -1 5' 'V+ ww, -H W ' '1 ' 4 ' i .

He stood up, grinning face wrinkled up into something like to be broken. weariness, then without the castle that Peggy humiliatingly, Peggy's a fist, then she screamed and shoved him back down again. Peggy was crying, desperately, 'I 1 .fa ,Y ,fl 1 .-,' in ' 'J--1 . 1 - . ' ' ' 28 The violence might have continued indefinitely had not Peter, who was of a somewhat cowardly nature, expediently withdrawn, all the while hiding his fear with a smile that grew increasingly more difficult to maintain. ,lPeggy watched him leave, and when he was gone, released the ffustration pent up inside of her with big, warm drops that coursed over her little cheeks in gasping fits. She fabricated a desperate, sadistic smile. nYou'll see, Peter. Just you wait till the tomic bomb comes. Ha! You'1l see. You'll be sorry.n But it failed. The bitter tears erupted anew. She cried awhile, then ran inside to her mother makeing supper in the kitchen. Turning from the counter, her mother saw the red paths the tears had make, walked quietly to her, and asked what had happened. She struggled with something inco- 0 heret, then buried a fresh volley of tears in her motherfs apron. The story came out, slowly. Her mother talked' softly and quietly to her as she struggled to regain compasure. There was something strange in the voice. Peggy's sensitive ears could tell. Something strained and hidden, something urgent, yet controlled. She should make friends with Peter. The tone quickly ended the tears, and her thoughts returned to the wonder of a few minutes ago, to the tomic bomb. She tried to associate all that had happened into and understandable whole. She left the house, walked back out into the yard, back to the sandbox. She looked around, at the sandbox, the yard, the house, and the sky. She looked over towards Peter's house. Sure enough, within a few minutes she could see his blonde head emerging from the front door, slowly, with no sign of hostility. Peace would be made. Soon the two were standing together in the yard looking up at the sky, waiting. Peter looked straight up, not a Peggy. nI...I guess I'm sorry... I mean, about breaking your sand castle. And I didn't really mean .... all that about the tomic bomb...Well, I gues I'm just stupid.n that's all right. Who would believe that any- way. It was silly.u nNo. You don't know.

New Bohemia is now further east by six or seven blocks. The New Breed has invaded the shores of Greenwich. It is really not astounding. Take folk singers. Five years ago, only the squares participated in vibrating their vocal cords to the music of the people. Today, it is absolutely imperative for one of the "ins" to be able to play a guitar in at least five chords. Folk singers, however, are not the only group to rise in recent times. The Nouveau Riche of suburbia have discovered that the opera, ballet, concert, and Shakespearian tragedy also exist. The musical comedy is now being eclipsed by what is generally referred to as culture. The non-conformity of the Beatniks is also non- existent. Where those in search of purpose once crawled down alleyways, the Manhattan elite and New Breed tof Beatniksl now roam. These New Breed beat- niks have an occupation. They pose for photographs at two dollars a snapshot for the tourists from Terre Haute, Indiana to send home. The Nouveau Riche are also conformists, but not in the same way as the Beatniks. Where the Bohemia sect conforms in an attempt to be non-conformists, the suburbanite conforms in search of conformity. More interesting than the result, however, is the motivation behind the Nouveau Riche. The perfect example is the advertising executive from Darien, Connecticut. His day is monotony interspersed with boredom, excepting, of course, the worry of the status seeker whethe-r he be the chief copy boy or third vice-president in charge of maintenance. But once on his New Haven commuter sardine can, the executive is out of his daily tomb. Greeted at the station by his wife, they ride off happily to their split level heaven in a Levitt-like community. At 5:47 while the children hastily gulp down the pre- vious night's leftover TV dinners, Mister Executive slowly sips his martini, extra dry. She joins him for the second, and the third, and the fourth. By the time they are done, the only worry they have is how to put the kids to bed without them smelling their parents' breath. "I know honey," says the Mister slowly, "We'll use Liste-rine that Joe back at the office is pushing. He says it really works. I don't really believe him, though. He's been using a new sort of campaign, whisper-wise." The happy Cvery happy! couple sit down for their supper to the blast of the television as the children watch Sa1'Ldy's Hour. The Mister and Missis have a much better dinner than their offspring. Theirs are fresh TV dinners. After a leisurely dinner, the Missis chasesthe children up to bed, but not without an argument. She finally succeeds when the Mister threatens the little demons with the back of his hand. At last the magic black box is free to their own use. Through mis- cellaneous panel shows, situation comedies, and"in- tellectual adult drama," they spend their evening yawning, laughing, crying, and yawning. Now the hor- row show comes on, otherwise known as the Eleven O'Cl0Ck News . Off to bed now to listen to the stimu- lating Barry Gray, and then to fall asleep to Long John Nebel's show. This is their life, with Saturday night's parties or cultural events breaking up their routine. The reasons for this conformity within them- selves and in striving to be like others are mul- tiple. The Nouveau Riche must keep up with the Joneses. If they are different, they will be failures in life. There is a suggestive element within the sub- scious of the average suburbanite that spurs the ob- jective of conformity. "I must not be different. I am only one man. It is up to me to contribute to the mass by going along with it." This, then, is the creed of the Nouveau Riche. One cannot rock the boat, and once aboard, must stay for the entire journey. Non-conformists are few and far between. The reason is very simple: once one appears, he is quickly gobbled up and is followed by others who envy him. By this means, his non-conformity disintegrates be- fore it is permanently established. Original ideas are scoffed upon, until one hits pay dirt. At that point, others recognize the merits of that idea and Ttarmet Bcafrl :J flff attempt to duplicate or imitate it. The original is lost in a barrage of others that are similar to it. It is a shame that sich a series of events occur. But they do just as the moon follows the sun, and night follows the day. Originality seems to be fruitless, but it is not so. We hear very little of it because of the preeminence of other ideas. Yet, when something new strikes the scene, we recognize it as original as long as it is worthy of our merits. Whether a hoola-hoop, a new philosophy, elec- trical appliance, television program, or architec- tural structure, the idea of doing something new in itself is enough to scare the doer. It shouldn't be. It won't be. Three cheers for the one who gets it done! UHXQ 4 . U ' TEKTIUYI QUID Howell Strauss 8 Perfection by David Fischer It was a sunny day in New York, awonderful day. John Newton was not unaware of the beauty outside his hotel window. He reached for the tele- phone, not allowing himself to think of what lay ahead of him. Wearing a new dark blue suit, John stretched out on the bed and waited for the telephone operator to complete the chain of calls to locate Bill Winthrop. He listened to the operator get through to the switchboard at the Liberty Dispatch. Bill Winthrop, its editor for the past twelve years, worked from the 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. shift. He was fifty, tall and think and now almost totally bald. This was all John had been told about the man, though fortunately, it would be enough by which to recognize hini. Finally the switchboard operator at the newspaper answered and John asked for Bill Winthrop. He waited patiently again for the connection to be completed. As he waited, he carefully rehearsed his lines. He hadnow been memorizing these words since the High Command had given them to him two weeks before his arrival in America. Then he heard a voice and quickly responded by introducing himself as John Newton, formerly of the Dallas Researcher. He went on to say that he had just resigned from the Re- searcher in hope of joining the Liberty Dispatch, and that he would be very pleased if he were hired. Then the husky voice of Bill Winthrop mumbled some- thing indicating how happy he was that John had applied for the position and that he would let him know within a week. They exchanged goodbyes and hung up. John thought to himself that the Dallas Researcher would soon be getting a call to clarify his old position. He had, of course, never worked on the paper nor even heard of it before receiving his current mission. But like his passport, residence, background, and all the other arrangements, this too had been taken care of by the High Command. Now all he had to do was sit and wait. John Newton had waited about ten days when he finally received a letter from the Liberty Dispatch. He was to come in on the following Monday and re- port to Mr. Winthrop's office. From there he would be assigned to a department. John slowly folded his letter and decided to advise his contact of the situa- tion. He knew that the High Command had many agents in America, but the only one he knew by name was Edson Frank. Frank was operating a grocery store across town and John immediately set out for it. When he arrived he saw a great commotion there, and upon closer inspection, realized that the men who sur- rounded Edson Frank were government men. He could also see that his Countryman was betraying all his contacts. As John rushed from the scene, his first thought was of his mission. He knew very well that within a matter of hours every policeman in New York would be searching for him. He knew also that he must dispose of Bill Winthrop, for Winthrop held in his possession information that could destroy the whole organization. His mind was made up. As he entered a cab and instructed the driver to take him to the Liberty Dispatch building, he checked his gun very carefully. Every- thing must be perfect. That, he reminisced, was the first thing he had learned when he became engaged as an agent for the High Command. When the cab reached the building, John quickly paid the driver and entered the door. As he came toward the stairs he saw a sign indicating that the office closed at 4 P.M. He checked his watch and saw that it was 4:45. This meant that Winthrop would be one of the few people remaining in the build- ing. He followed the steps up to the second floor and saw that this part of the building was taken up by the editorial offices. Through an open door at the left he saw a group of linotype machines, out in the room where he was, desks lined the left wall. At the far end was a glassed-in room containing two or three teletype machines and several more desks. At the far right was a glassed-in cubicle in which a man sat with his feet up on a desk. The rnan's face had a little smile on it. "You're somewhat early, Mr. Newton," he said. "I was-n't expecting you until Monday. . .Is something the matter?". . ."Oh yes, Iforgot. I'm Bill Winthrop, the man you came to kill." John knew he had been betrayed. He started for his gun but saw that Winthrop had already taken one out of his top desk drawer, along with a large envelope. "You see, Mr. Newton, in this envelope I have the names of your complete membership and their descriptions. Now you know how I recognized you as a member of the High Command. For the last twelve years I have collected informationon it and am now finally ready to present my findings to the U.N. Security Council. I have always hated what it stands for and now I will see to it that your plans to take over the world will fail. I have discovered through my research that the motto of the High Com- mand is that all they do is perfect. Well, I also have a saying I use quite often. It is that for one to be perfect, one must be dead, and Mr. Newton, at this moment you are very close to perfection." And when Bill Winthrop, editor and private citizen, was finished talking, the High Command lost one of its agents. For John Newton No. 1440 was then perfect.

His pale hands moved quickly over the dark dunes of desert places. Below the layers of black skin Kane was falling slowly through space. He could hear the faint voice of a woman from the clouds. It was Mar- tha. Her words, as doves, fell and whispered re- gret. In her face the vague suggestion of pity that was in all his sketches and works. Thick lines that dwelled in the shadow of the ghetto. It was a roman- ticism that eroded the character ofhis frescos. Kane had gone to Montauk in the summer of '34 for a rest by the sea's edge and there with the help of a friend salvaged what he could of his style. He would lie for hours on the sands and d.raw the smudged faces of men on the breadlines. He would stop in his work and watch sea gulls in flight. Kane thought as in a dream of going to Europe and becoming invisible. It was a fantasy he had courted in jest as he was out of money. In New York City he had left a fresco in progress and found it impossible to explain to his municipal patrons. Kane packed his things in his flat on the east side of the city andvisited his parents in Harlem. He learned that his cousinWilliam in South Carolina had been lynched by a white mob. It dis- turbed Kane's mother that William's body had not been given last rites. She sat there in the sun and wondered about the destination of Willie's soul. His father, a quiet man, was reading acopy of the Natian and asked him as his mother grieved about his plans for the future. Kane saidafewwords about a rest in his friend's house on Long Island and then left. At Times Square he bought several pamphlets on the Mexican muralist Rivera and then set out for Mon- tauk by train. The heavy fans moved slowly in the hot cars of the train and Kane began to read: The agrarian revolution in Mexico has found its artistic spokesman in the figure of Diego Ri- vera. His art is within a sociological frame- work. The subjects of his frescos reflect his concern with the contemporary problems in Mexican life. Rivera expresses in his work a nationalism which seeks to revive the cultural traditions native to Mexico. In a child's exaggerated promenade Kane saw his own art. It was banal in its gestures. The lines he had drawn began to fall apart. Kane in his descent had noticed Abraham Lincoln on a cloud. He was crying and said something about Willie. Lincolnwas dressed in black and his face was a simple pho- tograph. Kane could see stills of his dead cousin William, the grotesque features of the maimed. He could see in him the body of Christbut it was all the same. Kane felt sick and began to lose conscious- ness as his body sped downward. Kane found himself in dialogue with a neatly dressed man who called himself an angel. The sur- roundings were pale and flat as the quiet floor of the ocean. The man's face as the sky seemed to be painted a dull white. He helped Kane to his feet and they began to walk together. They approached an area which seemed like the beginnings of a dark lake. "Below us," said the angel, "is the universe. There, off to the west is the galaxy called Androme- da. Mr. Kane it is time for us to leave. We have quite a ways to go." They walked away in silence. Dear Martha, I have begun to fade on this white canvas. My frescos have grown pale with tired thoughts. It is quiet here a.mong the dead. We slowly come to sit in our crowded marble chambers andpray. The ghetto slums of Savannah persist inheaven. The white plantation owners come in their blue Packards and speak of virtue. It is over, it is all over for us. This misery father's forms that cannot breathe. Will night never come? Kane 12 Photo by Ronald Berenson Orest Fedun Harwin: Thomas: Harwin: Thomas: Harwin: Thomas: nterview with orman Thomas Norman Thomas is a man who has run for the Presidency more than anyone else. Today, he is the spokesman for many socialists in our nation. On May 6, 1964, Norman Thomas addressed the government classes at Union Junior College inCran- ford. Prior to his planned talk, Michael Harwin Know a freshman at Rutgers in New Brunswickl inter- viewed him forTHEQUID The questions were com- posed by last year's staff CRichard Potash, Eric Rathjen, and Robert Fishman! and Steven Kushner, this year's literary editor. The following is the text of that interview. Why did you run for the Presidency so many times even though the chances of your winning were slight? Well, I never expected to win. I knew too much about history, too much about life to expect to win. As for the times I ran, it seemed to be worthwhile as a way of build- ing up a Socialist party movement as a way of educating the public partly by the audience you got when you ran, and partly because of greater audiences you got between carn- paigns because you had run. I ran, in other words, for an educational reason. I ran be- cause I hoped it would make the Socialist party a catalytic agent in precipitating the organization of a former labor party such as We tried in 1924 in a coalition with the Lafollette forces in Wisconsin anda radical group of labor unions called The Conference for Progressive Labor Action. Do you feel that what you did strive for in running was worthwhile? Oh, yes. I have no regrets at all. We in our history classes are studying the economists, and one of the statements that someone made is that the Soviet Union is becoming more capitalistic while we are becoming more socialistic. If this is true, do you think there is any happy medium or place where both will meet? I think it's a little inaccurate. What is happening is that the Soviet Union in prac- tice is diminishing the excessive centrali- zation of power. It is becoming more pluralisticg that is to say, it gives much Harwin: Thomas: more independance of action to industries without dictation straight from Moscow. I don't think that is fairly described as saying it is becoming more capitalistic. We are becoming more socialistic with a little "s", though it isn't the type of socialism I always liked. In this sense we do have more planning in spite of what we say about free enterprise, that we do have to have more government control. I think that there is a very good chance that if we go on without a World War and if Russia and the United States drift without too much conscious thinking about it, they will drift into afairly similar economic situation in two or three generations. That is to say there won't be enough difference to fight about. It would be like Westinghouse and General Elec- tric: They will be competitors with some deals under the table. I told you we were studying socialism and the different branches of economics in history. In the beginning they gave us a broad definition of socialism: government control of the means of production and distribution of the major industries. What does socialism mean to you today? What I think the emphasis of modern times that socialism ought to be is thatproduction has to be for the common good and this does require, underpresent circumstances, large degrees of government control. Pro- duction has to be for the use of all, the consumption or the sharing of what is pro- duced has to be on a more equitable basisg 14 Harwin: Thomas: and to get the equitable basis there should be unquestionably public ownership of na- tural resources. It's ridiculous to let them remain in the hands of individuals who never made them. This would be in brief what I belief. But socialism also wants to emphasize it is against Communism and against a good many other things. It wants to emphasize the element of democracy in industry, the greater share and control by workers in plants and so forth. As I've understood the difference between the socialistic and capitalistic systems, it seems that socialism would be more a base for beginning a new country until it was capable to handle acapitalistic system. No. There will be no country that will be able to handle the old capitalistic system. It will have to disappear, at least the old-fashioned type, because the world will be very full of people and the ways in which it produces are highly complex. You will have very few men that make individual pairs of shoes, for instance, and resources under the best manage- ment will run low. Take water. It is al- ready unthinkable to let water revert, as it once largely was, to control of private individuals. You're going to have necessary increase of social controls which will be permanent. What you can hope for is that evolution of people and the education of people will make them fit into it, do it voluntarily and naturally without much government pressure. You can hope for, moreover, that there is another fact that even socialists have not had time to take into account. You are on the verge in a country like the United States of a possible economy of abundance with comparatively few people doing necessary work. That is because of the progress of automation or cybernation. This raises new questions that no one could have expected to think up once. Harwin: Thomas: Harwin: Thomas: How do you manage when the use of ma- chines which could do almost everything better than we can? You can get alongwith- out thousands and thousands of workers. What happens? Already there has begun dis- cussion about a grant out of the common fund to everybody just as you inherit more when you are born in a rich family in the United States--you get an allotment out of this common production. Has Socialism in theory become obsolete or will it be practiced ever? Socialism in the sense of collective govern- ment control is marching on, and if brother Goldwater should be elected, he would check it, but he could not stop it. This isn't the kind of socialism I like. I want amore conscious socialism, a more democratic participation of workers and a more just distribution of what is produced. But what people call Socialism is bound to march on. It's utterly impossible to return to the 19th century- ways of production. I have a friend who I quoted hundreds of times who is a socialist and an economist and a very successful economist at that. He once made a remark that the only people who practice Zaissez- faire capitalism are little boys playing marbles for keeps. A lot of what we call protecting free enterprise is really protect- ing profit. Many of the people to whom I have been speaking are interested in your opinion of President Johnson's War on Poverty. Is it going far enough? No, he isn't going far enough. It's a good thing he has gone as far as he has, but it's ridiculous to think that a problem of this magnitude can be defeated on this level of work. Oh, his emphasis on the role of edu- cation is important. His idea that ther-e has to be a concentrated attack on a whole dis- trict like Appalachia is good. But he hasn't composed enough, you don't win wars by bal- ancing budgets. And the war against poverty Won't be won by helping it within current terms of cutting the budget. It will require practically for us to transfer a great deal of over- spending for the military to spend- ing on the war against poverty. But my main emphasis, and the main emphasis of socialists all over the world is this: Automa- tion has by no means gone so far that there isn't a lot of work to be done and the best way of providing work is construction. For every million dollars spent there would be more employment than a billion dollars spent on missles. A higher percentage of workers are employed in contruction. A war on poverty requires a war on slums. I would like to see, and socialists would like to see, a coordinated attack on the local, state, and federal levels to eliminate slums. Challenge of fhe Asphalf The lusty roar of the tiger-like 6000 cc. sports cars Reverberates through the still air. The flag drops, and the shrill blasts From these charging tigers shatter the peaceful air Like a doomed dragon. The small buckets of bolts, blast Through the tight girdle-like hairpin turns Circling through this death bed of asphalt The little tigers challenge for the cup. Some tigers become lame and limp flff this strip of continuous curves. Some drivers are thrown like fleas fromadog's back, While the driver's limp, broken andtatteredbody lies Motionless waiting for the high pitched siren Blast of the ambulance. The pace rises to a fever heat. That extra punch of speed. The cars swiftly drink ofthe toxic fuel and eat of The asphalt. The flag is down now, the pits are quiet and still A hush lies over the track. A soft, warm wind slowly blows over the limp Body of the little red car. A human cry softly sobs through the air. It's all over, victory is captured, death is won. Robert Huber l6 Ulysses Amon th Marxists by Steven Kushner American literary critics in the 30's were con- fused and repulsed by the odyssey of Leopold Bloom. James Joyce had in his magnum opus Ulysses, de- stroyed the historical conventions of the novel. Amer- ican critics firmly based inthe triangular formalism of AristotLe's Poetics couldnot comprehendthe hori- zontal structure of Joyce's work. They expressed in rigid paragraphs the cliches of the English re- views of the 20's as by Gogarty claiming Ulysses to be "a gigantic hoax." The Little Review, a pioneer literary periodical, published the greater part of 'll- ysses from 1918 to 1920 in New York, but soon found itself in trouble. The obscenity of some passages was responsible for the book's being suppressed by the censors in the United States for some eleven years after its formal publication in Paris in 1922. In the landscape of Dublin, Joyce had related in a stream of consciousness the vulgar-ity of life on the contemporary scene. It was an examination in the flesh beneath the pretensions of modern man. Tin- dall, an authority on Joyce, explained that the vision of man in Ulysses was one of "imperfect men fall- ing and rising to no end." The horizontal movement of the story is derived from the fact that there exists no climax. The atmosphere of Ulysses is the dull history of Michelet, long in its duration for those who lived in it and for the historian. The human fig- ure in Ulysses is brokenup and distributed over var- ious parts of the Written canvas. The conservative British author Hugh Walpole stated that Joyce in his writing was "without nobility, fine feeling, nor any other restraint." American literary critics in the wake of the Depression and the literature of Henry James followed the European tradition of throught. Fundamental concepts of American life were drawn from the European experience. The critics sought a metaphysical meaning in the disintegration of their society and found it in the European textbooks of Marx and Engels. The Sociological school of criti- cism, dominant in the 30's, expressed in the New Massesl a moralist intent with Marxist overtones. Literature was now deeply involved in an exposition of the class situation and power elites. The empha- sis in fiction shifted as in Europe from character dilineation to social drama. Selden Rodman2 noted this situation in poetry as T.S. Eliot's style "began to give way in the mid-thirties to thevoice of a gen- eration under the spell of Marxism." Joyce was re- duced in the 30's to aminor writer of the "decadent avant-garde whose chiefrelevance in the age of so- cial ills was a collection of short stories called Dub- liners published in 1914. His major novels had been denounced as without form and what fruits they had were said to be repetitions of early works. V.F. Cal- verton3 in 1937 characterized the substance of Joyce's work as the expression of the "drab . . .life of the proletarian." American literary critics in the 30's had judged Joyce's work by the standards of so- cial realism and found its' sole significance depend- ent upon the Dublin slums. Ulysses was kept from extinction by its being an underground novel which engendered a commercial success in the United States. Bloom in the dialogues of critics faced so- cial and not philosophical problems. He was not a man unto himself but the ravaged creature of Irish capitalism. Their columns on Joyce ended with fac- tual comments on strikes, housing problems and Marxism. Their thoughts in the American idiom grew from the social nature of Sinclair Lewis' sa- tires of Babbit and Main Street in the 20's. History In as comments onthe arts were being rewritten. Whit- man and Melville were now the literary prophets of social realism. Literature was dehumanized in the 30's into political shibboleths. In 1930, John Dos Passos began his fa.rnous trilogy U.S.A. which read more like a socialist tract than a novel. American literature was in search of an American civilization as Pirandello's sex characters were in search of an author. It sought in the vacuum of the 19th century values to define itself through idealogy. Albert Ca- mus once Said in The Rebel that an age of ideology follows an age of negation. Hart Crane foreshadowed this enterprise in poetry as he pursued anindustrial context for his work and failed. Society had out- grown reason and man. Joyce sought to find man's meaning not in the artifacts of a collapsing society, but in man himself. Tindall explains that Joyce "re- jected progress and retained original sin." The anti- heroes of Joyce exist outside of history. Bloom's journey in "skin trade" during one June day in 1904 could have occurred in any age. Ulysses is the ex- pression of the eternal "hypothetical imperatire" which drives man onward. It is the portrayal of the self as mute, unclean and banal with moments of clarity. It is a photograph of man in his totality. Edmund Fuller4 once said of Joyce that he repre- sents "a sharp swing toward the disillusioned reverse of the cult of triumphant man." He proclaims in the post-Christian sense that man is dead. The odyssey of Bloom is overlong and dull by intention. Joyce's Ulysses is a philosophical study of man as was Swift's GuZZive'r's Travels that approaches the essen- tial truth in man's existance. Joyce sees man in the Freudian sense. The patterns in Leopold Bloom's life are basically sexual in nature. Man in the end is an animal, stretched out naked by time. His song is confused, dirty, and verbose. Americanliterature in the 30's, influenced by its critics,exhibited noble heroes of the "down-trodden" working class as shown in Steinbeck's In.Dubi0us Battle. Americanliterature had by 1936 thoroughly repudiated Joyce. The Amer- ican Writers Congress in 1937 expressed to authors in Sinclair Lewis' words "a summons to submit themselves to Stalinist Communism." American lit- erature in order to have survived the realization of nihilism in the 20's involved itself in the 30's within a. European idealogical framework. In rejecting Joyce American literature had established itself on the brittle ground of illusion which collapsed with Mich- ael Gold's5 unconvincing constructive criticism in 1940. 1 a literary periodical of the l930'S. 2 anthologist and critic of modern poetry. 3 critic and editor of the American Sociological School of Criticism. 4 American author and critic 5 Michael Gold was a co-founder of the New Masses in 1933 and a leading exponent of the Sociological School of Criticism.

The film script by Edward Anhalt immediately ensnares the audience's attention by openingthe pro- duction in a medieval church in Canterbury, England inside which the reigning monarch, Henry II, can be seen bending sorrowfully over the tomb ofadeceased Archbishop. King Henry, played masterfully by Peter O'Toole, tells, by means of a flashback, the story of Thomas Becket, the Saxon whom he befriended, and had.appointed Chancellor of England, and later, Archbishop of Canterbury. Henry goes on to outline the circumstances which brought an end to their friendship, as well as to the life of Thomas Becket. Thomas Becket, as portrayed by Richard Burton, is a man wandering aimlessly devoid of honor and the personal worth which gives meaning and purpose to one's life. Becket was in such a wretched condi- tion because he felt that his close friendship with Henry, who cruelly subjugated his Saxon race, ne- cessarily made him a despicable collaborator. King Henry, in gratitude for Becket's loyal service, ap- points him Chancellor of England. Becket Welcomes the appointment and tries to find solaceinhis job which he executes with amazing efficiency. But in the pivotal scene of the drama, Richard Burton Kas Becketl utilizes his consumate skill as an actor to show that the Chancellor has not yet found his reason for being. After a wild eating and drinking orgy, Henry, drunk and slovenly, ascends to the chamber where Becket is with Gwendolyn this mistress! for whom he cares a great deal. The king brazenly asks Becket's permission to take Gwendolyn and when Becket subserviently agrees, Gwendolyn com- mits suiclde rather than submit. Henry, who has be- come dependent on Becket's friendship and counsel, became afraid that the death of Gwendolyn would by Lawrence Glickman alienate Becket. In an emotion charged response, Richard Burton Cas Becketl foreshadows his de- parture from the king's side when he proclaims: "Fear not. I will serve you faithfully as long asl have to improvise my honor from day to day." But what shall Becket do when he meets his honor face to face? And where' is Becket's honor? Thomas Becket's questions were soon to be answered. While scoring diplomatic victories for Henry in France, the Archbishop of Canterbury, with whom the king has long been struggling, dies. Henry suddenly decides in what is the supreme irony of the production, that to end his troubles with the Church of England, he will appoint as its primate Thomas Becket, his loyal friend. This appointment, however, has a remarkable effect on Becket, whose long suppressed conscience suddenly awakes and tells him that he has finally met his honor and his reason for living. Zealously, Becket assumes his new post as Archbishop of Canterbury. The unbending way in which Becket conducts his office soon brings him into conflict with the king whom he had once so faithfully served. The conflict, leading to the gradual aliena- tion of King Henry and Becket, occupies the rest of the action in this majestic film. The acting and directing in Becket are indeed superb. Director Peter Glenville seems to have evoked the best from the entire cast. It is remark- able that Richard Burton whose personal life has been on display so much lately succeeds completely in this film in suggesting only Becket, never himself. Peter O'Toole also deserves much praise for his superlative performance as Henry II. The scenes be- tween these two actors, whether the subject was riding, wenching or discovering that reconciliation was impossible, were so vividly unforgetable that one leaves the theater with the impression not of having seen a good or even excellent motion picture but of having actually experienced the twelth century England of Henry Il and Thomas Becket. 19 Courtesy of Paramount Pictures The Antidute by George Teshu Mr. Godfrey Flat was walking to the-main speedcar depot of the Pre-Awakening Relics Build- ing, a small brown paper parcel clutched under the sleeve of his coat. His aging head remained un- turned, the little spectacles intent on some luring thought that danced in front of them like the dazzling white of a depot light in one of the dimly-lit side corridors. A pleasant, good thought. Yes, he was feeling good, thought Mr. Flat, almost progress-good. And then the thin metallic smile reappeared. But he had to hurry. His eyes flashed, his pace quickened. Ah! Just in time. No sooner had he reached the gleaming stainless steel door, when his speedcar arrived. Scurrying into one of its compartments, Mr. Flat quickly seated himself and prepared for the ride home. Now, accompanied by a rumble of doors, the horn of the speedcar droned through the cavernous tunnel, and he was off. Soon only tiny white lights could be seen whizzing past the windows of the vehicle, and only the soft, somniferous clicking sound of the car could be heard. He sighed. Inconvenient, yes. But he was further- ing his son's education. Yes. And the smile returned. Mr. Flat had been extremely fortunate, and he knew it. Pre-Awakening relics were very rare, and he had had to come all the way to New York to look for what he had wanted. But he had found it. And re- calling the moment when the yellow-paged volume had been pushed across the counter of the relic store, Mr. Flat smiled and pressed the brown parcel closer to his body. The thought returned. His son. His fine son. After six years of science school, the boy had obtained a position at one of the well known government-sponsored engineering com- panies. What could such a son not do? Now he would make a name for himself. And Mr. Flat would be his proud parent--a parent who could lean back and be content with the knowledge that he had raised a son of progress. Just how fortunate could one be? The boy was one of really extraordinary abilities. His teachers had always said so, and had treated him with very special consideration. Aware of the re- sponsibility they had and fearing that John might be- come bored with the simpler studies over which his classmates labored, they had recently begun to give him very advanced problems, and plenty of them. This had not bothered Mr. Flat at the time. Queerly though, after about three months the extensive home- work did become an obstruction. No, it was not too difficult for the boy, but strangely enough, it seemed to fail to hold his attention. This was rather disturb- ing, since John had always been greatly interested in science. Ah, but then the boy would soon be back to normal. One day, while on a business trip, Mr. Flat had passed the Pre-Awakening Relics Building, and the solution had miraculouslyoccurredto him. It was ridiculously simple. He would broaden John's educa- tion. He would buy books from Pre-Awakening times and John would read them. Having a great desire to learn, the boy would read the books about primitive cultures and then surely would not be dissatisfied with his new position! Mr. Flat had scurried up the ancient stone steps and through the entrance with unusual eager- ness. In the main lobby he had quickly found among the lists of articles available the location of the book room. Understandably, in spite of his eagerness, he could then not help noticing the strange interior, so different from anything familiar to him. Thread- ing his way through stately, silent corridors, he soon came to realize that the 'building itself was a relic. Towering Greek columns rose above his head in quiet dignity of age to draw his eyes toward the mysterious vault of an ornate ceiling. Strange, the immensity looked down on him, and for a second- only a second-he felt somehow smaller and weaker. But then, as if awakening from a tiny dream, he re- called his purpose and walked on. The place was indeed curious, he thought. One of the few public buildings preserved after the Awakening. Most of them had been replaced by ultra-modern progress structures-places which, unlike this one, seernedtohide nothing of their per- sonalities or distract the attention. And, in his mind, Mr. Flat knew that the newly-announced government plans to tear down the obsolete structure were progress-good. Had he not been so excited, he might have recalled also recent government attacks upon the relics trade-but as it was, he did not. In the room he had bought a book which he had been told was almost five hundred years old. The clerk himself had heard of it only once before and had had great difficulty in obtaining a copy. But, he had said, it would surely be of great interest to the boy. Mr. Flat had thought the price rather high, but upon hearing this last assurance, had pulled out his billfold. Since that time, John had spent hours in studying the ancient volume. It was strange. Sometimes he would suddenly nod his head as he read, but at other times, would simply stare at the pages blankly. From the amount of time he spent on it, the work must have interested him deeply, but it soon became apparent that the boy could not comprehend all of it. And now Mr. Flat had solved the problem: He had bought a Pre-Awakening dictionary. Ever since he had told John of his plans to do so, the boy had been eagerly anticipating the results of his father's search. And now John's waiting would be rewarded. The speedcar reached Worker's Manor and Mr. Flat disembarked. Soon he was home. "Hello, Father," said John, "Do you have my book?" "Yes, son. It was difficult to procure, but it will further your education." John went to get The Book. He had just been reading it. "Romeo and Juliet" read the cover. "This word occurs so many time," said John, "and I have no notion of its meaning. I think that if I could translate it, I Would'be able to understand The Book." John opened to the center of the dictionary. His finger was on the word, but he showed no emotion. "Father, this is strange," he said slowly and with great concentation. "Love ---- to have a strong or passionate attachment---" Yes, the book was difficult, thought Mr. Flat. The he moved slowly closer to examine the strange Word. bserve The Law, Key To Order, justice, Freedom by Lawrence Spivack The development of organized Society may be viewed as the development of law itself. As a codi- fication of the community standard of conduct, law, in a real sense, is society: for without such standards disintegration of the group is inevitable. Yet society matures, and so must its lawsg few indeed are the absolutes of human activity. AS areflection of the so- cial climate, law, far from being immutable, should be a dynamic factor changing with the needs of the group, The concepts of order, justice, and freedom, rep- resent significant developments in the evolution of a democratic society. This sequence is not consecu- tive but cumulative. The legal structure is based on order, but order alone is insufficient. Observance of the law in such acontext is merely a necessity for living, and no more. When the element of justice is addedto the social equation, however, observance of law takes on new meaning. Justice resting on order provides for the equal imposition of legal sanctions. As such it ele- vates the law from an arbitrary regulative device to one which inspires broad confidence. Observance of the law then becomes a positive goal of the citizen, instead of merely a means to order in an autocratic society. As the capstone of the legal structure, freedom is our most cherished right. It can only be attained when society is sufficiently developed to control it- self by the implementation of order and justice. Iron- ically enough, every law deprives us of some free- dom. Usually, however, the freedom which is lost is repugnant to the group in general. In taking away one's freedom to commit a crime the law gives to the majority freedom from fear of that crime. Thus, we are bound by order, justice, and free- dom: links which elevate the social standards of so- ciety and render the individual's conduct in accord- ance with that which seems beneficial to all. This constitutes the observance of the law which perpet- uates the democracy to which we subscribe. 23 14" L Photo by Ronald Berenson Edward Hansen ELIZABETH 5-9525 - B758 DAYTON AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS REBUILT GENERATORS V STARTERS SOLENOIDS - BRAKE SHOES 32 DAYTON ST., ELIZABETH, N.
