'}... Vicke!Cs, Regarding that collection of wood-pulp and ink that is callee a "newspaper:" whom are we kidding? !t be nice to disregard the sho=ey quality, (typing, etc.) but that leaves us with content, which the production appea= superlative by comparison. Ho ... eve=-, as ycu ..;cul:! ?robabl:,r attribute such ot"oduction to low {!:ow Wot:t !ow I shall from cocment our first concern the eCitor, whose Iercifully short pieces bare their fangs uncor.tprooisir.gly, yet irrpccer.t:!.y, with snickering malevolence. We are burdened a despot without a populace who scorns his readers, and begs their ranks for conspirators in his battle against good taste. Now about those articles ... they seer.' to be written unde:the theo::;that if profanity is funny, then genitalia are hilarious. Since when are we at recess in third grade? Shit, piss, fuck; we're naughty and we love it. The remaining pieces are either ventures into the tedium of esoterica (running news, WHAT?) or wholly unoriginal (the poetry and short-lived record reviews are direct steals from "Rolling Stone"). The eidtor's attitude suggests that he can affort to make enemies, so why don't any of his creative pitch in to help? Well, if the paper's portrayal of the typical New College student is correct, probably too busy with drugs and to bother writing anything .... In short, if what we are seeing is the best of the pieces submitted, pieces thrown away must be among the sleaziest dregs ever But, t.hen again, !lla::zbe :.s a-sure that :r.any people are delighted with the rrere of t."le word "titties" ... --c. \'eal (Box 463) (I'o !!'ad at the whole world right no<., so you needn't take all of this seriously.) Edic:or's Reolv= Let me"deal with these accusations separately: a) I don't call this a newspaper, I call it a publication. It has yec to define itself as a as a magazine or as else for that matter. b) I have never blan-.ed a low budget for any of the non-::>rofessional asFcCts of this publication. I'm sure you would be comforted to find out that if I did ha;e a lot of money to play around with I'd probably spend it on illicit drugs ar.d sex and leave Blessed Relief looking L,e sa:=e .. c) Yes, I do consider what you are looking at my best people seerr to think that just because I'm the editor I collect =ad prose poetry. In any case, most of it gets printed. Who am I to tell sorr.eone that his or her writing sucks raw eggs? Besides, my prioary goal is to get anybody and e\erybody to contribute son:.ething. Certain ::>eople I have sooken with h<,-,e already core out of their she ::.ls to some extent and have"beco"e more and asse::-"::ive co to their contributing to this journal. d) Yes, I think a qood of New College students are preoccupied with various and intoxicants. I do think it is unfortunate that all the (quote, unquote) "humor in this publication reflects these preoccupations. I also think it unfortunate that the more serious pieces have a tone which says to me "hey, I'm in college a .nd I can misuse four syllable words. I still like this publication. It has improved and new contributors are appearing every week. Thank you, c. Veal for your eloquent and predominantly constructive criticism. Write again. To Blessed Relief: In Meatball= Your "Bad stereotyping" article was not without humor or accuracy, but one point needs extreme clarification. What the fuel< is "a nukkie?" Any good chauvinist knows that is poontang. {note sp.) [i.e. "baby-deposit-box, "moist mother {mrrm), "tunnel of love," "pink pluwbing," "quivering quim," "juicy junket, "volatile v," "boisterous oyster," "messy muff" etc.) Well you know. Editor' s Reply' Sincerely yours, The .Boys Club I wasn't sure if I should print this but C. Veal' s letter made me realize I ought to. I hope he laughs. Maybe he's right and genitalia is hilarious. Dear Editor, Alriaht vou negative energy types! This-does it. How could you be so as to insinuate r am in the ROTC. I am a bona fide hi?pie and have the long hair, split vellow toenails, calloussed feet, mellow attitude and malaigned chromo somes to or:ove it.

Sanrord Arcane's taped interviews with Lucienne Browning deCharlais. We hope you enjoy it. ARCANE Good afternoon, Brownie. BROWNIE Bon apres-midi, Monsieur Mundane A Arcane B Whatever A There are so many thing that New College wants to know about you, I hardly know where to begin: but let's just start 8 Wait, wait: you were going to say "at the beginning" right? A OK,OK! But how did you rirst come to New College? B: Oh really, now. You mean that after all the times I've been through all that, there's noone left to reiresh your memory? Isn't David Temkin still about? A: The merger, Brownie B Oh. Forgive me. My memory isn't what it used to be you will strike that last part from your notes, won't you? A: Certainly. B Well, where was I? Oh yes. It was 1966, and the Pe dorms were still under construction; I'd been unemployed for about the last five years but wasn't having a hard time of it; Dad left me some funds, what he didn't lose at the track--compulsion, you know, just tore poor old man apart. But I had a few dollars and that I could live in relative ease for the of my years. A: ? u u you re3t uf your family? B: Later, later. Let me go on. I living in relative comfort, I spent a lot of time around Bellm's, the Ringling Jerry's; so I was familiar with the north end or Sarasota. Now this seem like a non-sequiter, but just bear with me. You see, it was the case that the good Mr. Pei, owing, I to his cultural heritage, drank vast quantities of tea, it was also the case, owing to the fact that (albeit I respect some or his irr.ovations} he was a dottering old fool and drooled (pardon my but it is part of the tale) as I say, he drooled almost constantly. Well. his staff had finished all the working drawings for the campus (you notice that it's I.M. Pei & Associates: well, it's the associates who do all the real brainwork. Pei hasn't been around a pen since the 3ancock building started spitting windows like a kid with a mouthful of watermellon seeds) but I digress: they had placed the plans out for his inspection, and Pei was shown in to see them: there was, I understand. one of the newest and most junior partners in the firm followif16 him around with a box of Kleer.ex to mop his chin. The poor chap did his best, what in face of that constant of tannin-stained saliva (I have this from the project chief, who came later to Sarasota to oversee the thing) and he did well, but not well enough. Care ror a cigar? A: No thank you. B Well, the good Mr. Pei lert one droplet of tea-stained ooze on the HC f1oorplan blueprint, and since everyone who worked in New York was to browr.ish dribbles all over the place, they just ignored the whole But with these local well. that ..,as a dif.fe:-er.;: story; they didr.' t kno.,. .,.hat in :tell to do, I mean, ever since van ..-ezel, all cont:racting bids around here have included fees for a part-time psychaiatrist; and with these damned drawings, well I don't blame them. Metric this, avoirdupois that, color-coded courts, and all the while facing the thought of building a floating complex in the bay... So, the interior work was just about done in the HC, when someone noted a small, erose edged brown spot in the atrium, somewhere near the door to Dick Scott's office A: Dale ar,d Randy are back: there now. B: Dick, Dave, Dale. whatever anyway, these poor fellows had just about had it. They didn't dare call New York and invoke the wrath of the old idiot, so they retired to Jerry's bar to decide what 'o do. No one knew what the hell it was supposed to be, plumbing, furniture, who knows. So they resolved to something rather amorphous, brown, something which wouldn't move too much, could be moved if necessary: the last debate was between a dun-colored Castro-Convertible and a worn out set of Britannicas in Morocco leather. But I bumped into the guys at Jerry's that day, and (as they say) the rest was history. A Fascinating; but earlier you mentioned your family. Tell me about your "roots as it were. B: Pine, fine. But before I dre.tge up all that I want to defend my real title. There have been so many misstatements about my name, that I feel like I should take a minute to clear all that up. The moniker in this informal atmosphere is alright with me-is derived from my mother's family name, Browning; Dad's and I claim title to it, though I'm the last of that l1ne, "Charlais," not like those pale, bland, affected milk-monger of who insist upon being called sshhhaaarrr-laaay," but those of BucKingham, or the few from around Highgate; you pronounce it :ny first given name--Lucien.'"le-has also cause1 :ne a lot of grief, and those damned (not that I don't like that language, it's really quite lovely, and very versitile, but don't ever turn an Englishman, much less an Amer1can, loose with it). Anyway, those who thought they were being "oh so contenental" would always pronounce it "le chien," which of course caused ce great embarrassment at times. Whicn leaves only my second given name to dispose which is the of a long-gone branch of Mom's family (they were distantly tied to the Mecklenburger duchy). Idiots simple-mindedly thought everyone was referring to "Jolin's dog, which, nice man that he was, was alright, save for slighting my lineage. So there you have it Browning deCharlais. A I see. What s your favorite "New College" story? B: God, there are so many. I suppose that the David Temkin Shrine is still being toured regularly, so I'll dispense with that. In recent years, there's been less and less to keep one's interest. Oh., well, the most interesting thing about New College is just wandering around and looking about. I mean, the things you can see: people. lashed to a billiards table with their shoes in flames; dancing on the pinball machines; some character singing DieWalkerye, at the top of his lW".gs: Bergwerk and Foster {in pith helmet and "flasher" trenchcoat, respectively) going at it in court, while that character with the psychotic orange hair cuts out paper dolls; a semi-nude woman sitting in a cardboard box in Palm Court insulting someone else's cast-iron genitalia; God, it's endless. But it's always entertaining, n'est-ce pas? A You have a point But let me ask you one more thing before s.

"American Style" shakes are some unidentifiable chemical added to cold water. Pepsi served lukewarm. There are perhaps 200 of these places in England. One burger, coke, and "chips" is about $3.00.

Even on the photo the food looks awful. Britons don't seem to mind. About $4-5. Dayville's 32 Flavors: Obviously an imitation Baskin Robbins.

Putney Swope is the riotous outburst of all the insurgent fantasies that filmmaker Robert Downey repressed during his doomed career i n the advertising world. Downey's view of Madison Avenue has Putney Swope, mild mannered token black in his advertising firm transformed into the chairman of the board of Truth and Soul, Inc. Robert Downey In the words of Robert Downey, "It's symbolic of everything." "It is funny, sophomoric brilliant, disjointed, marvelous, unintelligible and relevant." Vincent Canby New York Times "It's all as Mad Comics would have it, 'humor in the jugular vein.' It has the raucous truth of a cry from the balcony or the blea c hers There's vigor in this vulgarity." Richard Schicke/ "A mind-blowing racial satire of exuberant originality ... timely, tough, relevant, and equally important, hilariously funny." joseph Ge/mis, Newsday "I don't mind if you calJ some of my pictures tasteless.

For a minute, it looked like backstage with a stranded Major Bowes unit, until Tom started rolling numerous libidinal chords out of the Steinway, and nobody knew what was going on. Hard to figure the SEC sometimes. Anyhow things soon were underway with the Chairthing lambasting inflated budget proposals. but giving an understanding nod cause ever'body wuz doin' it. Jerry Huston (Alumnus) and A MeA Miller (Aluminum) spoke eloquently to the subject of Student Chair for College, their eloquence punctuated from the back row oy Dr. Mudge's firey head-nods of Applause and the snapping of poptops echoed. Dr. Miller continued, but shifted the subject to his 12 year old, I mean, the magazine. The Chairman takes advantage of Miller's running the show to make a hasty visit to the Pei toilet. Suddenly is a blinding flash; all eyes turn to the projection booth to see if Curtis has been electrocuted by a Bell & Kowell. but no, from a puff of smoke on stage appears Dr. George Mayer. who announces that he's just dropped in from the century to tell everyone about the Medieval Fair, which he does. A thunderclap, applause, another flash, and he's off to the 1l!.th century again. Mudge suggests that if we could bottle whatever it is that empowers him to do that, we'd all be rich. Money starts bouncing about; _Fine Arts and get 5.100, promise to be good boys and to and the Medieval Fair; 1 .1 00 goes "o fl1cks 1n .. he person of the Film Committee and a terribly circular debate ensues over policy and FC and FG and everyone else who wants ciner:.a-Koloski, not to be confused, as CampusNews was, with Kolakowski, makes a to the effect of Andy Devine Film Festivals, and :.tudge echoes Wl. th a plug for Annette ?unicello-but_in the_ end, Academic the Shakespeare Films, come out WLth own $300, draws some kind of hex sign on the floor and mutters someth1ng 1n Latin. The building quakes for a second. The Chairman's Pentel RRolling Writer explodes spraying ink all o:er he shrieks oh thit!";Biggers pretends that he s Ell1s for about 20 minutes and begs for and they :nd up with $500; Camping & Trail the SEC for not pay1ng full attention to their privately raised out get $575. and swear to be back later; 'NNCR causes the to speak out of and shames him into a profuse 1f inane appology, and so, they take their $550 and start up all the pinched discs from the station; Folk Dance gets $100 to try themselves out for I. and prove that thP.'re their clogs; $72 for trasncans for Carol to stuff cans. and then $20 for Matt Brown for something to do we1ghts and such; Dance take a piddling $520 without much argum7nt: $?00 ends up in Sailing, McDonald and namilton discuss the po1nts of boats while the Chaircretin looks Greg gets $40 so Angie can type; Bill Brown and the RA's an R&B outfit) gets $300 (or did I mention that before?); Sam g1ves $200 from Drama to match the SEC's $300 to match private (i.e., Saras<;>tal _o':'cks to bring the 0 trabonda Company to var\llezel (the van 'II us the hall and by some odd we get the proceeds over the $500 figure; ask Ken, I don't comprendstu} ; $80 goes to buy new balls for the soccer team (must be one hell of a rough sport .. ); $600 for SEC sec/treas for the year. $1000 for SEC Chair -man -woman -primate -person -plant -cushion for the year $500 fol." publications. a minimum. adds the alert body 1 400 goes into SEC A&S discretionary reserve for terms II & III to Robinhood School of Ballroom Poetry, Phones, exvenses, Lobbying costs, SCSG, and many more and $1,373 1s left in the SG account for the same or other purposes as above. If I've mentioned everyone, the btotal comes up to $22,750, which. oh-so-conveniently, nappens to e our A&S to tal for the year. Applause, Ken_Holloway goes well thank god" and opens a beer. and.everyone Jumps up and down, before falling on their faces. floats two feet off of the floor, and. as Tom on the ivories. he shrieks whats up next week doc. Wluch amounts to the next paragraph. paragraph. Committees have always been a thorn in the the SEC, and it's time to wake the fUck up or forget the_Job, 1.e. _(I know, Iknow, five "i e.,'s" in one column is a slgn_of feeble-mindedness, out what the hell) Admissions, EPC, FSC, and the divisional reps had better keep the SEC posted on what's going on at division and other meetings. oh and by way f?r SASC too, or they'll get yelled at with that he is tired of flack from the and other groups because SEC doesn't know what's go1ng on, and th: reps need to start a new procedure for reporting to. the SEC; Cha1rdrunk then yells something unintelligible about Fund, and says that if we don't get on the proverbial 1n next week, we might as well put our heads back our ass and pass Friday evenings jerking off in the tunnels. (Or maybe jerk Friday evenings passing gas in the And there's matching funds, provided we can get our 1deas through to the Foundation (who will benefit, and who the (pardon me, "whom the"') SEC needs for back-up if we're going to to too much about the deal, and H.C. cleanup, which we can't not practice. but can't afford, and shouldn't have to afford. and on and on and on until everyone was out of the TA retching on their sneakers. As footnotes, Dr. A. MeA. (or as the Sarasota Journal once called him "Amca Miller") proposed a "Leave It to Beaver Film Festival" but insisted that it was not to have Jerry Mathers or not even Hugh Beaumont, not Tony Dow, appearing 1n one wasn't redundant, as I am here) frame. (Use your even Brownie the pooch laughed.) Oh, and Dr. Mudge (or did I mention this?) got $200 from SEC (mot1on proposed by the firily eloquent Dr. Lincoln, which shows how. persuasive and polished rhetoric can be); and after mucn gavel banging, the whole thing degenerated once more into the appearance of a defunct Vaudeville troupe in a sleaze piano bar. having fun, and pretending nobility. to: screams of P:ivate Fund and otHer student responsibil k1ss for such a nifty, really neat-o. top notch p1ece of 'cause otherwise, you'd all be left in the proverbial (I know, that's twice for that one) dark. ---J, Sanford Arcane ., IMPORTANT: Campus Council elections will be held this Monday through Thursday; please show up to vote CbilirpersQil.
