EDITORIAL (continued) I don't care what you think of this magazine, we've got some interesting stuff going in and if you don't like it, go l.:_e down on 41. I'm not in the business being a nice guy--I'm a tough, hard hitting editor and that's that. Let me say, that I am very pleased with the fact that b th the majority o students and the majority of faculty members support Lewis as chozice for provost. Clearly he has a mandate and John Lott Brown, who was personally impressed by the man, seems more than willing to give us what we want. I did not support Lewis as my first choice, but in thinking over tne issues, Dr. Lewis made an impression on me as a guy iho definitely has something to add to this institution in the way of motivation and direction. On his visit to New College, Dr. Lewis was not afraid to disagree with the most formidable of N.C. faculty members. Dr. Lewis will be the beginning of the post-merger age. In the three years since the merger, New College has floated in a void of illdefinition. George Mayer was appointed before Gresham Riley's ass had disappeared over the horizon. He accepted the job only in a care-taker capacity and has since served admirably, but now New College is motivated. It took three fucking years for this school to orient itself. Personally, I feel ripped off that I'm not going to be able to partake of the splendours of a motivated institution. with the New College move is the U.S.F. mo1e to appoint a permanent replacement for Cecil Mackey (I wonder how long he'll really last, but it's nice to dream.) Further, students have banded together to get more money for S.E.C. I wonder what they'll do with it once they get it. Iviaybe they'll get a student chair in drama or something pretty like that, but who am. I to say? I'll be gone next year anyway--flown the coop which is what I'm doing now. Nose-down negative, Herb

ne BE.e. Ch:Jir Dear Herb-editor, Your paper sucks, however, since your unjustifiable, obnoxias (sic) ramblings could do permartent damage to this student body, I feel I must express myself, as an individual, and no"t as the S.E.C. C _hair, Hirb (sic), from way you discribe (sic) Bob Allen you'd think you ere his anruysist (sic). Laying aside the "sensitive, intelligent .. eloquent," let me first qualify my statement that Bob Allen served effectively as chairman of the S.E.C. Effectively, yes, effective in that Bob Allen succeeded in alienating almost everyone on the S.E.C. As a member of the S.E.C. that time, I feel that Bob Allen was no more democratic than his other so-called "sleezey" candidates you spoke of. Allen made a mockery of S.E.C. and this kept (unintelligible) within the bounds set by other chairman. Secondly Bob Allen is not one of ta most people I know; he is one of the most dogmatic. Hence, I ask erb, who in the hell are you." You have ridiculed what was originally represented as a journalistic endeavor, to a ficticious (sic) .pretentious, and badly written conglomeration of opinions and attacks on individuals. The fact that you must explain your article on is a testimony to your true naturDe. Herb, face it, you write the Byzantium to amuse and pass your contract, what consideration you have for individuals has been flushed long ago. You refer to this S.E.C. meeting as one of our worst. Herb, why don't you be honest ith your be read malice, readers or words--ed. note) and how you acted. !es, assuredly, for a while you were calm and collected, but once things got a little out of hand, you joined in by becoming one of the obnoxious people there. Herb, tell them that you were sue an a""shole that I almost threw you out, and had to tell you to .. shut jour fucking mouth!" Herb, would you rather I closed the meetings? How about if I disposed of democracy al toge+her? The issue of provost is one of the most volitile (sic) every before N.C. students, and the S.E.C. felt it necessary to open the floor. You know Herb, I could run meetings like the Tampa student senate--cool, calm, and collected with never a murmur or whelp. However., the S.E.C. is an open it even has a place for like you. Love, Brian Albritton e1J n-an Dear Brian, Just because you ran unopposed for S.E.C. chair, doesn't mean that you're Adolph Hitler. 1) I. your first pa_ agraph, you resort to e .. otionalism as your vehicle for attack. Whether or not Byzantium as a publicat!on .. sucks" is, I must confess, a debatable point, but to resort to emotiona.lism and downright cruelty only obfuscates the issue. If the paper does not satisfy criteria hieh you have for a "good" publication, then, rather than blind name-calling, it ould be better if you specified your general objections in a clear and logical progression. 2) In your seco!""Jd paragra.ph you resort o more propaganda Rather than actually specific ns of ob's supposed as S.E.C. Chairperson, you choose to d1ell on glittering generalities such as "succeeded n aliena1ing almost everyone on the S.E.C.," and he is one of the ost dogmatic." You conclude your paragraph w"th an attack en me

PAGE 5

etJI/o/C )S which is useless since your refutation of the points which I made in last week's editorial are all propagandistic rather substantive. J) In your third paragraph, laying aside for the moment your inproper use of the word "ridiculed", you have successfully slurred several completely separate and distinct poir.ts into one vindictive and ur.intellegable blob. In the midst of your vicious name-calling, you make two contradictory statementsa "The fact that you must explain your article on Hank is a testimony to your true nature," and "what consideration you have for individuals has been flushed long ago." Obviously, if I am as inconsiderate of other people as you say I a.m, I would not have gone out of my way to clarify and explain the intent of the "Hank Speaks" article. Further, let us consider that you meant your opening sentence of paragraph three to reads "You have reduced what was originally represented as a joul'nalistic endeavor to a fictitious, pretentious and badly written conglomeration of opinions and attacks on individuals ... Let's look at each point one by one. a) misrepresentation as journalism. In the sense that this magazine/paper is not objective in the sense that a commercial big city newspaper is objective, then perhaps this is not journalism. But on a higher level, the fact that this magazine reflects the ever changing face of the New College community on a week by week basis suggests very strongly that if the magazine is not, in fact, journalism per se, it is at least journalistic. But when I got the project off the ground I maintained that it was experimental in nature and never suggested that it should be taken as journalism. b) fictitious. Byzantium publishes both fiction and non-fiction, but your charge is that which is printed as truth is somehow fictitious. I doubt that anyone would call the article on Glickman, the interview with Mike Alexander, the interview with Soo Bong, the article on the ballot box {voting), or the Bramson/Lewis article fictitious. Perhaps there were elements of fiction employed, but these were only to enhance the underlying truth of the statements being made. c) pretentious. No more so any other endeavor which purports to have worth. If by sticking our necks out we are to be considered pretentious then so be it. Are you pretentious in the way you administer S.E.C.? d) badly written. In as much as this magazine is an assemblage of various student voices, we run the risk of having certain articles which may or may not be badly written, but point of fact, some of the best writing which has appeared in any N.C. magazine has appeared in this one. See for example "Ott's Sake" in vol. 1, no. 5 and tell me that that wad poorly written. Also, judging from your own writing ability, you may not be the best person to judge. e) opinions and attacks on individuals. We present student opinion providing

We attack individuals only when they deserve to be attacked. may take liberty with poklng fun at certain other individuals, and apologize if this has offended anyone. 4) When I said that the provost-S.E.C. meeting was one of the worst S.E.C. meetings I've ever attended, I wasn't ltidding. It started out in admirable fashion and you were quite judicious in your of time and your design of format, however, when Pete Tepley's poorly stated motion hit the floor, you lost control, and from thence on the meeting as a nightmaxe. Your inability to wade through the rhetoric in a succinct amount of time was embarrassing. People got out of hand because of your inability to deal coolly with a tangled serr..antic problem. This lack of restraint may get you into trouble. Watch it. Finally, I'm sorry if I was an asshole, but we all are at some time or another, aren't we Brian? Oh, and by the way, watch fascist statements like "How about if I disposed of democracy altogether."

I am very happy that the Social Change Group is receiving so much abusel This indicates that we have identified the points of controversy. I have particular enthusiasm as to where most of this abuse has come from. As for sentence pointing out that "Concepts of rationality and thelogic of legitimation are structured by socio-economic relations embodying themselves in institutions," the meaning is perfectly obvious to anyone willing to think about it. The gist of the thought is that consciousness and knowledge are grounded in material relationships and one's position in society. The limited realm of the imagination of Gary Berkowitz couldn't permeate a wet paper bag. This sentence is well grounded in abstract sociology of hich Berkowitz is.obviously ignorant. The language of the manifesto is perfectly clear English although writing problems migh emerge upon examination of practically anything. The point of themanifesto was to arouse discussion and to inspire controversy. The manifesto represents the id9as of the many diverse individuals in the Social Change Group. The Social Change is recognized by many to be the most active collective of individuals on the New College campus. We have done much work in the Provost selection process, and have obtained commitments from John Lett Brown and Les Tuttle (quite a task I Might add). \'Je wish discussion about the academic program, the meal plan, labor, the E.R.A., the and May Day. No reality was distorted in the manifesto. However, we have obviously shaken Berkowitz's limited view of reality. If our demands are unfeasable, stop the world, I want to get off. The obvious meaning of our reference to containing environmental exploitation is its impossibility in the context of fundamental socio-economic change. (General Motors has yet to implement 1975 emissions standards for its automobiles. Its short sighted "solution .. the "Catalytic Converter" creates sulfur oxides, and has a marked tendency to explode. In addition the absense of effective mass transit creates dependence upon this form of locomotion, which by is highly wasteful of limited energy resources.) The linkage of our short term demands to our jdealogical statement stems from a problem of all radical movements. This, .I might ndd, stems from a fundamental contradiction of our socio-economic system. A mass movement must be built, attacking many diverse problems, While the movement must attack the effects of the existing system, it must simultaneously attack the basis of the capital:i.st r.1ode of production and its associated mode of appropriation (surplus value). Our short range goals most probably can not be implemented in the full sense of their meaning with?ut fundamental socio-economic change. This subjective interpretation, ho ever, certa1nly does not exclude anyone in aggreement.with the goals who is not immediately concerned with the overthrow of capitalist social relations _, ...

Dear Brian, Thanks for expressing your vie s openly. I'm not sure that it is worth taking the time out from work on :ny thesis to make a reply but I'Jl 'o it any ay. It was especially interesting to note your ideas of my term as SEC Chairperson--you fact, a member of the SEC that term, nominally. If I remember(orrtc.tJ'Ithe number of meetings you attended was negligible. It seemed you only had time to drop in once in a"""; [t.. and make some ambigous and amorphous remarks about, Hoades my mother M.dH' L\o\t.,t" the legislature Judging time you spent in the meetings it would be difficult to give your impressiens too much validity. But one remark you made did show a certain amount of peraeption. You wrote that I was effective in the position if by effective is meant someone who "succeeded in alienating almost .. e the SEC." Considering most of the mem-bership of the SEC that term, jt would h(.l.u< b"' a disgrace if I had not succeeded in that task. You happen to have been elected in a term hich the SEC has some relatively motivated people among its members. Such was not the case when I held the position. You claim that I was not democratic in the way I handled the SEC. that's bull-shit. I had strong opinions on some controversial subjects. I didn't hesitate to express them. When the SEC didn't agree with me, and voted against my proposals, I went along with their decision. It was my impression at the time that there were a substantial number of people on this campus who were not being represented by elected members of the SEC--I tried to represent them. I per-ceived myself not strictly as a parliamentary mechanism for conducting meetings but as someo e who could propose some useful aH(r"Q hu

If you have any interest whatsoever in art, lite ature, history, or the of the world, you should see Tom Stoppard's play Travest1es, now playJ.ng at the Asolo Theatre. I have already seen it twice, a.."'ld am considering going again to pick up on anythint:; I rr1ight have missed. This play is full of puns on everything from Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde to Gilbert and Sullivan. The general plot, revolving around James Joyce, TristaP and Lenin, exists in themind of Henry Carr, fossil remnant of the once handsome young soldier who livedin Zurich during World War I. During his stay, Carr was asked by Joyce (yes, The James Joyce, author of the work the world now knows as Ulysses) to play the part of Algernon Moncrieff in Joyce's production of Oscar The of Being Earnest. Wilde himself said that the philosophy of his play was" that we should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality." Stoppard follows this philosophy in his play by having Tristan Tzara, founder of the Dadaist movement ("You remember Dada, spiritual halfway-house between futurism and surrealism."), in Zurich at the same time as Joyce and Lenin and the fictitious Carr. Dadaism can be an exemplification of Wilde's philosophy in that it was an attempt to defy all meaning. In a debate between Joyce and Tzara on the function and meaning of Art, Tzara declares, ''It has no meaning--it is without meaning as nature is." Joyce disagrees maintaining that art is justified only when it has some redeeming moral value. And Lenin? For him, the purpose of art is to change society, "art as social criticism." So, we have art existing regardless of society, art as it is affected by society, and art as it affects socety. In portrayi ng these three enigmatic figures within the context of each other, Stoppard presents us with a literary, artistic, and political revolution, but one is hardly aware of the seriousness of the situation due to the and wildly funny manner in which it is presented. The play takes the form of Henry Carr's (Stephen VanBenschoten) memoirs, which include love affairs between himself and Cecily (Brit Erickson) a librarian, and Tzara (Robert Beseda) and Gwendolyn (Deanna Dunagan) Carr's sister. This subplot, down to the names Cecily and Gwendolyn is right out of Wilde's Earnest. Yet the two nineteenth century ladies are more than stock characters, as we that Cecily is a socialist and Gwendolyn is a fan of Joyce '1 (Max Howard) and later Tzara. Everyone is connected in some way with everyone else in the play, and this suggests that all of the ideas are also connected. Lenin himself implies this in a speech wherein he decli:ares c ''Artists and intellectuals will be the conscience of the Revolution. Little doe he know that the artists and intellectuals are conducting their own revolution. Mixed in with all of these "heavy" themes are o hell. a::muS1ca1 -dia logue between Cecily and Gwendolyn, which is a take-off on Carr's favorite--Gilbert and Sullivan. There is also a mock striptease by Cecily atop her library desk. Carr pretending to be Tristan's younger brother Jack looks on hungrily as Cecily performs a

PAGE 12

(continued) and grind interpretation of Marxist/Leninist doctrine. There were also several scenes spoken entirely in limericks. Stoppard's virtuosity is nowhere more aparent than in these scenes. Another strong point of the play was that there v.as not a single dull moment. Although it was a long show {2! hours), there were at least two or three things happening on stage at any one given moment1 actions and ideas occurring on different levels, appealing to different tastes, so that even if one missed an idea, he could still catch a joke. As to the actual I would have to say that the first performance I saw, done by the understudies, was, in general, more energetic. The actors were younger and seemed to have more of a feel for Stoppard's ideas. Cecily and Gwen dc:yn (played in the understudy performance by Carolyn Ann I\ieeley and f.1ary Ann respectively) were especially good because they were just young enough and unsophisticated enough to have a feeling for their parts. Henry Carr in the understudy was especially worthy of note--played by James st. Clair this is a.l'l actor to watch. Amazingly, St. Clair was able to catch much more of the bittersweet quality of Carr than was Benschoten in the professional performance. You will probably never see St. Clair and Benschoten does quite an admirable job himself. Max Howard as Joyce in the regular performance gave a beautifully crafter 1erformance with one of the most studied Irish accents I have ever heard. Robert Beseda as Tzara as well as his understudy Arthur Hanket gave a performanee. Bradford the most polished of the Asolo actors took on the task of directing this extremely difficult play. It is to Mr. credit that he did so with a confidence and assurance which made this production at the Asolo the finest I've seen. The task was further complicated by the fact that Wallace played the part of Lenin delivering a clean and unobtrusive performance. Through Travesties, Tom Stoppard asks the audience, "\'Jhat is the meaning of this play?" Carr gives a clue in his final speech, but I won't tell you what that is because the end of the play is so powerful that you won't want me to ruin it for you. Above all else, Travesties should be seen. -Kim Keene w/ H. Guggenheim

a /o e z... L/. a-lirr This week's topic is not one I thought of myself. After six weeks of ste dy contrib tions, subjects for essay no longer suggest themselves as readily. I hope that this colwnn expresses t1"thoughts of its real author correctly. To wade right in, here will steal anything not welded to the spot. Not only that, but no one gives the proverbia 1 ,. flying fuck" about a yone but themselves. The result? This campus is turning into a slum. That's right, a glorified slum, complete with luxurious balcvnies, and maid service. Let us elaborate. First item: Typewriters continue to be ripped off at an alarming rate. Second item: Personal items, such as jewelry, are be'ng stolen selectively from peoples rooms. Third item: Books, clothing, even valueless items left for a few seconds in Hamilton Center disappear immediately. Andy Hmvard had a red flag on a wooden pole, that only had value to him, stolen for no good reason last Monday at the May Day rally. Obviously, most of the thieving is being done by students. Even the surreptitious entries into peoples rooms has got to be the work of a few warped student minds (such as they are). Don't blame the security force for having let this go on. (They may be negligent in recovering things, but they cant stop student rime). The people guilty probably don't need the items they take, or the money-supporting drug or pinball habits does not qualify as "need". No one can really expect the guilty parties to turn themselves in a la Raskalnikov to Petrovich in Crime and out of a sense of overriding guilt. The people mentioned here are too scummy for that. As to the second statement about aeria 1 fornication. Although the level of slovenliness is not as high as it was last year, it is still unacceptable to civilized human beings. Exanples here include the destruction of every phone book in Hamilton Center, the mess after every Palm Court Party, (which only two people clean up), the shitty ambien e of the gameroom, the destruction of foosball equipment, pool tables, pinball machines, and ping pong tables! No one gives a damn about the next person, otherwise why would they treat the Pei Campus like a garbage can? (This is a rhetorical question.) Again, this article will not stop people from acting like total shit, but it couldn't hurt. Un ike the larceny, many people are guilty of being inconsiderate slobs. The only thing peo!?le care abo t

One concern about ''Excital:e Boy" is that some of the songs are two or three years old; Zevon has been working hard on this. Will his follow-up show the same effort? I fear that it not. Is the record worth buying? Probably. How many stars out of five is it worth? Three.
