Volume VIII Number 14 February 1, 1973 Court Recommends New Prosecutors The Student Court met on Tuesday night in Hamilton Center to discuss the selection of a Court prosecutor. Dave Parsons and Bram Haver were chosen pending a decision of the SEC BALLOTING CONTROVERSY CONTINUES ELECTION RESULTS HARB DISPUTES The Court decided to break with tradition in having two court prosecutors instead of one. Parsons and Haver had previously discussed the parb:lership and the Court agreed that this two-man arrangement could be beneficial by lessening the a mo=t of individual paper work as well as the chances that a prosecutor be personally involved in a case. This is the second installment of a three-part investigation of the recent New College elections. Last issue of the Catalyst included several acco1.mts of the balloting of the referendum eliminating the necessity of petitioning for !EC candidates. More accoUJ1ts are below: THE PECK STORY Madge Peck manned the ballot box for three hours and "started to count votes at the end of it. She left before the first counting of the ballots was over. Spending Dominates Latest SEC Agenda The first regular meeting of the Student Executive Committee was held on January 26, attended by Len uttal, Rick Lathrop, Wendell Wagner, Bill Qay, Bill Luker, Candy Boyd, Madge Peck, Jim Hunter and Darryl Laatsch. Two membersof the Hare Krislma movement requested $250 of SEC money to hold a presentation on campus. Nuttal objected to this on the grounds that it was giving student money to a religious or genl,e ion; Ht.trJ'ter that a refercndum be taken. The matter was tabled. After a heated discussion, $193.60 was given to Henry Patterson to make up the deficit in the fee for Dr Mary Boulton, who conducted the Transactional Analysis 101 workshop on campus Jan. 13-14. This deficit was ca

The editorial(written by TSM, whomever that may be) stated, "during the referendum at least one of the ballot box attendants openly supported the propos al (although she attempted to pre.

During my shift of the supcrvi:;ron of the ballot box I tried to get as many people to vote as possibl by calling over to the voting ar a all persons even vaguely College stu dents.

An Apple Your Eye P age three lll FEVER Even the pillars of insanity fold into legs of cardboard and collapse. What is imminent is all that is filtering back to stand tmconcerned at the edge of this deliriwn of sleep asking for water. The heat straps us down. We cannot keep our heads closed, our eyes open. The flesh melts. Bring back your lies they belong here where enraged channels flood all that is not protean and lips parch all speech that seems certain. We despise less lucid moments. These are more tropical times fllDlg limply over ruins and absolute monmnents of torture, pounding a space which can fluidly S\U'VlVe its own destruction. --Holly Boren. MARKROTHKO RED BROWN AND BLACK 1958 OIL In the space between dreams, In the eyelid of heaven I awoke in the dark last night. 11m shaking, my nerves are bad. Not the Moon or Saturn But the force of infinite space Not bone, not the bloodshot whites of the eyes But the blood itself Not expanses of meadow, lake and sky But the damp soil tmder stone But the cloud packed, purple night. In that moment where maroon meets black, we hold a power In the cells of animals, we enter deeper than any Bruise, deeper than prayer Where blood emerges from the marrow bone center. We grip the edges with our fingernails It slips through And surrotmds us In a death through entropy. As if in the instant we see God, after that blinding flash Of light we breathe only his darkness. --David Wasser SONNET 5a...\--t'f''"; I -f.l () uJ e. f'5 I d..u..rta..'Nl Marcy Denmark This aching heart of mine, a twitch inside it like a hole is sprouting from the shadows, pours through the memory of music. Little girl, I am fasteneG, to you like a button to a coat of dream. And yet, these drams of rawness, cossacks of darkness, what measures have they? Not a coin's toss through the winks of time. It's just more salve to the ache, the love-pump's meaning tmstated. Agrarian intents and purposes make hay in the heart. But oh! those eyes of yours; as clear as the color blue. --Norman Stein WOOD CARVINGS IN FROOT OF A VASE The peasant and his wife stand slightly htmched in the shadow of the dark vase behind them. They have no chins and theil' hands are tucked a way for good m the simple linings of their pockets. Dried weeds and flowers have erupted from the vase and make over them an elabotate canopy of yellows and browns. The ceramic chickens below them are glazed into sUence. Deep smiles have flatteDed their eyes into calm lines. --Marty Steyer ROCKLAND Robert Smith Wish to hell I could spell an introduction to Rock Land. In its urgency to meet with me, this Rock Land I have introduced forgot from whence it came. Space and time were playing g ames, not giing the slightest clue. Wandering rocks I thought-my mind slipping into an Odyssean framework. Holmes had n o plac e here. This mastermind of criminology had no p lace here. There was not even a roost for Homer.

Again my thought s turned t o possi b l e answ e rs, anything to trigger the amnesi c c onscio usne:;s o f an e n tire world. I am a t a loss to describ e anything of this system fot I know not much.

The babies sqUJ..l'm about my fingers w orking thtir way up my arms, finally resting on my shoulders. Six six million infants resting upon my shoulders. In time, some of the infants find refuge in the confines of my facial pelt, whil c others seem t o prefer the warm climate of my crotch. Still others fancy the winds of my nostrils. Six million neonates living on my life. They don't seem to be aware of the fact that I move about as they do only macrocosmically in c o m parison. Is this the answer then?

All come to me as children and die as such. With the passing of ages, the children become more deeply entrenched in my body. My beard was not enough-n01 my crotch.

CAROL Wh n I first met her 1 didn't real!} meet her I her presence, flute fingers, her body a long cotmtl) song, deep hesitant sureness in her walk, hair trembling past her waist. Sh hid in it, an opagueness between her and the others as tho she had kissed her shadow to the wall and left to giggle from the comer. I envied her strange free smile, her total acceptance of everything within that shielded, veiled world But when l tried to take her picture like a primitive she refused to be captured. I moved all the lights in the room to try to expose her in her contented h1dmg. That frightened her. She was in all ways a shy creature, s ductively smiling from the safety where all are friends refusing to step outside her gossamer wall. She had an awkward gentle protective bluntness that cut like paper. One day she cut her hair off to her ears. I respected her symbolic stripping, but worried more, --Cynthia Cook A, 'IGHT IN A BAR Who is to blame when the sun dangles like a leper's hope.

I cling to a recWTent dream of woman and the way she shed her skin, evading the slow accretion of disease The flesh peeled uff in long, jaundiced strips exposing no infant but translucence blue with age. Bald and flailed, she believed the surgery of resurrection. But I am completely cauterized. I brush sleep from the eyes of death1s best physician. He supplies a continual dose of outrage. The cold hands. The imprecise incisions. A tender concern is displayed for the advance of our respective infections. \\'ho will be first to go? I manage one bloodless kiss because I know he tries to enhance the pain. --Holly Boren ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA In a cavern in a canyon, digging for souls, God dredged up an untoward woman, dangling by 0e da.rk branch of a live oak. She had a small SJmlan vo1ce m wh1ch she chatted with the birds, and He named her Rima. This was in 1959. In 1962, feeling a slight flutter behind her r'bs, she unfolded her legs and dropped to the earth. She was hungry, and the thick mulch of rotting plant matter on the forest floor smelled rich and tender, She gulped do.n a mouthful. But it made her sick. So she cut herself a walking stick from sturdy gopher wood, and, swearing off all food, set out for Siena. The road led out of the wood across dusty prairies of fleabane and purslane, mile after mile of sun and brush. Her fatigue grew large. After the first few weeks she decided to sleep during the heat of the day and walk at night, But the exertion in the dark only made her weakness greater. and it took but two nights of dragging her tortured body across the landscape to damage her resolve. She stumbled into a deep rut and collapsed, After a week she went on. By then she was no longer conscious of hl.Dlger or exhaustion. Her tongue was coated thick and gray, almost filling her mouth. Her skin was dark and parched, caked with the dirt of that for eign country. The wali

Well, when we first saw him do it, we just tilought he was crazy, but later we fotmd out he knew just what he was doing. That was about four montils ago, and it had gotten to be a regular thing for the fellows to come in drink a little beer, and have a go on the pinball machine. It started out with just bettinga beer, say. Two guys1d play, and the losing score bought 0c neJ-:t rotmd. Fine for business, I'd say.

Mason beat him good, 13, 500 to 10, 200, and after that Mason Nas considered the champion. The night the kid came in we were all just hangmg ar01md as usual. A few guys ha:i been playing the machine, but just then it was quiet. \Vhen I saw the kid I thought I was gonna have to ask for a ID -he looked about nineteen or so but he d'dn' 1 t come up to the bar--just edged over and looked at tile pinball machine I didn't tllink anymore of it -he was a middle-sized, ordinary lo?king. kid, wearing jeans and an old gray sweat shU:t, like maybe he was a college kid out on va cation. Mason was talking big about a killing he'd made at the race track in New Orleans just recently, so I didn't pay any attention to the kid. Nei ther did anybody else, tmtil a few minutes later we heard tlle loud tilump that means somebody'd won a game. We all turned at once, just as the game ended :md the machine quieted down. 3507 he'd scored, Just barely enought owin a replay. "Hey, Mase, 11 Wheelwright laughed, "Maybe we've a new challenger for your high score!' The k1d.turned. around and kind of grinned, dumb hke, lookmg a httle bit embarrassed as everybody laughed -everybody except Mason, I should say. who took his pinball seriously. After a minute though, Mase smiled--probably he'd decided there was no way the kid could be a tllreat and said, "I'll have to see him win one more before I'll worry too much," and to the kid: "Let's see it friend." The kia pushed tlle reset button. Everybody kind ?f moved down to that end of the bar --Mason J turned on his stool (he was tall enough to see standing) --and gathered around the ma chme. Well, tlle kid put on quite a show with crazy style I showed you, and got qUite a laugh out of it, and got him flustered -so.we thought. It was one of the quickest games ve ever seen -1200 points. Before tile laughter could die down, Littlejolm ot the est baD; llke he wasn't really tl'ying somehow --3418, he had. We all tllought Little jolm was in trouble, but he walks up and scores 1600 on the first ball, and it's all downhill from there. On the second ball he gets a double Show down score at 400, and he finishes at 3800. "Any body else?" he says1 raking in tile change. Then Mason gets up. ''I'll play just one, he says. "Littlejohn, you can buy me a beer with all your winnings tilere if I beat your 3800. Ylason's a big fellow, 6'2" and close to 250 pounds. He towers over that macl1ine like it was a toy, just takes it in his big hands and shakes it till it gives up. Well, he was in great form that night -tile more interest tllere is, the better he plays --and he took right off. Double Showdown on' tile first ball -bang -1000 points; two Showdowns on the next ball, one on the third --5200 -point game. That was that, it seemed. Mason strolled back for his free beer, and the machine was left to cool off. The kid wei1: up to it quiet-like, and started a game. We didn't bot11er to watch hiru until we heard tl1at tilump again. He' had won, 'and O;J the second Thump, the second win -that's at 4400, and tilen the third, at 4900. Mason's n10uth had fallen open, as had everybody's. 5325 --just a little better than Mason's --and the ball dropped. The kid kind of smiled at Mason. "How about it; Mase., Wheelwright said, "You gonna play him ? 11 Now, Jim Mason never looks anytlling but confident, about that pinball machine or anything else --he's a foreman for a building crew in the city, and takes no galf from anybody, believe me --but I tllought he looked just a little uncomfortable. I guess it wasn't so muclt the challenge, but like who it was coming from; I've seen him arm-wrestle a truck driver \'lith biceps big as a culvert pipe without breaking a sweat, but this here was a kid in dirty jeans, who hardly came up to Mason's adam 1 s apple. As I say, I tilought he looked just a mite uncomfortable. "Not tonight, gentlemen, he says. "The kid's had lucky game, we''lleave it at that." "How about for ten dollars? 11 We just looked at ilie kid. The mocking tone had been there for just a split-second, though he looked dumb and innocent again now. The place went quiet as a tomb as the kid pulled a crumpled ten from his jeans and laid it on tile counter. We could hardly believe it, but Mason saw the color of tile money, I guess, and his confidence came back. He opened his fat wallet and laid two fives acros:. tile ten. ow, we've developed rules for these big money games. It's best total score for three games, played this way: the fellow challenged plays his first game. tllen the challenger plays his first and second, then the first fellow plays his second and tllird, so tllat the cllallenger plays his tllird game last -so he can see what score he's got to beat, since he's the one trying to prove something. We bought ti:lat lit-'Sorry, friend, 11 Mason safd, getting up, but we discussed tlle rules at the beginning -if the machine busts while you're playing, it's your own hard luck 11 The kid "However, 11 !aSig scar:::d fists tightening w1th every rmg of the bell. 8000, 9000, Showdown after Showdown, till finally the counters turned over as the kid passed 10, 000 and kept on going. Mason went off like a stick of dynamite. He picked up one of til?se oak chairs (I it after: 68 pounds) like 1t was nothing, and before we knew what happened slammed it hard against the kid's shoulder, sending him sprawling across the fliX>r. The kid crashed against tile wall, and .\!ason was on him and pulling him up by tile shirtfront before the ball had even .had a to fall ( I remembered looking at tllat mstant, and 1t went out, scoring a last hundred for an even ll, 000, just as Mason tltrew the kid through tllc front door). I'd say the kid had definitely picked tlle wrong man to hustle. Well, in tile end they took the kid's SilO an.d stuffed it in his pocket, carried him to the city limits in the back of Wheelsright's pickup, and dumped him. "i\!ay be tl1e money'll pay to fix his two broken arms i\lase said, "so he'll l>e able to reach up and put his dime in pinball machine in a year or two!

The poet' s renown has emerged not from the vehicle of his own creative efforts, but largely from his bril-liant translations of German surrealists, like Trakl, and h1s sharp and thorough knowledge of modern, international poetic mO\ ements. i\ !though the author well destrves tho! praise which he has received, the reasons which rest behind his of creative lame remain something of an enigma to me. There is a high degree of artistic sub-stance present in verse. ot only do h1s works reveal the mastery ol a mind that has understood the d)namics of a wide >ariety of pregnant styles; they demonstrate, as well. his ability to incorporate thvse st} les into expressive contexts. with an intuitive, and not merely an intellectual perceptivity. Hamburgu's poetq makes no assertions, i t enacts a process. His poems are concretely stated biographies of 'spots of time' in e.istence, dated in the mind and sensual1zed in the touch of communication. i\S the p poet write .n the introduction to the collection, his artisti search 1s one intimately connected with "what Keab meant by negative capability." His is the at tempt to selfless! y iden.tfy with the obJeCt 1aiseJ to a level of Imaginative contemplation.

The poet, in thts aesthetic seruoc, anu tn the manner 111 ''" tch Jus ven;c constantl} returns for inspiration to the natural environment, can be said to have strong af filiatiOns with the romantic movement. yet, this is a point which should not be overstre;;sed. for Hamburger ban indisputably contt-mporary poet.

A more serious de 10 hiS patchwork Style Of Writing is the tendenq of Its 1mages to become conceptually clotted. In a similar manner to m1ny of the nco-surrealists, the poet often cieoends too stronRIY upon the intuitive. rather than thf' f:ctual or_ concrete connections between words. He has that d1stmctly annoymg habit of attempting to sound uggestive, withm a context that can support no such mtellectual complexitr. imagery is penetrative; it roots and uproots the 1deas behind the word, turning one over for another tn a ol dissolution and reintegration. It IS a "copulation of language," a rich overflowing of sound _values and trought. Yet given that his images and are pregnant,_ there is still the maJOr difficulty 111 h1s poetry that creativity for Hamburger is the bastard ch1ld of a secondary experience. As it was true of shel_ley, that which. has_ the most profound influence upon h1s_ 1s the ncanous sensation of reading. one d1sturbmg product of this fact is the off-hand tone 1n wh1ch the author is able to relate the mcst visual brutal or sensual of life. His secondary ceptions of wi!l not allow him to complete a Ident1flcatton w1th life in any ol its natural mamfestatiOns Th_e only point on which a reader might be to Hamburger is primarily one of F_oc 1t IS htghly questionable whether a vellie wh1ch '11S a part of silence" can be effectively through a syntactical dissolution of language There J s a certain limited level of accomplishment ts ab_le to by means of such a process; but 1t. 1s not a f1eld of hterery inquiry that can be pursued e1ther beyond the brunds which Beckett for example has ta_ken it, ?r to a realm of complete: aesthetic Isf:tcuon._ It 1s .not the legitimate task of an artist to l:ts mediUm of expression. A poet ought to enri ennch in order to gain a fuller sense of To express the paradoxical inexpres SIVeness of words IS an absurdist phenomenon that has alread"l:' been exploited and closed. Let us leave it be TRAVEI.U G, perhaps of 1ts aesthetic contentions, is a fine book of creatlve and verse.
