My part of the South Side was
the part whites came to as soon
as they had a little money and
left as soon as they had a little
more. They moved further south,
to the suburbs, or the North Side.

As a kid I played softball and
football. Guy player guitar and
left school to do it. When my
family drove through Guy's black
South Side, I tried to make my-
self a little less conspicuous in
the back seat. That South Side
scared me to silence.
After, that, I lived on higher and
higher apartment plateaus until
I could no longer see the faces
people carried on the streets down
below. While the faces were get-
ting smaller and smaller, I was
listening to more and more music.
A lot of the records I listened to
were blues-Delta and Chicago-
and I liked them.
I'd heard Guy on records, back-
ing Junior Wells, and I thought
Guy was "all right." That is what
you say: with emphasis on both'
the "all" and the "right" and a
pause between them. The words
somehow manage to have two or
three syllables apiece. The better
things are, the more syllables
manage to fit.
When Buddy Guy and his band
fling out their opening number,
you begin smiling almost at once.
Your reluctance about intruding
in . someone else's life fades and
you feel calmer because the band
begins with an instrumental. It is
very loud and loose, almost rag-
ged, but not quite. You watch
each face and every part of Guy.
When he starts sliding aid bend-
ing the notes you have to laugh
because he is so good a leader.
They call their second number
"Cantelope Man," something that,
among us groundlings, is known
by the name "Watermelon Man."
The song reminds you of a grin-
ning snake that has loud, all-
encompassing coils. I start pound-
ing on the notebook I'm supposed
to be writing in and cigar ashes
fall over everything.
. The third number is slow, the
hardest type of blues to play and
make meaningful. He punctuates
every sentence - phrase he says
- plays with a brief, neat run.
"Mary had a little Lamb" sneaks
into one of these runs and an
appreciative audience applauds -
all white, if memory serves, and
still a little hesitant. The saxo-

SUMMARY OF ACTION TAKEN
BY SGC AT ITS MEETING
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3
Approved: To adopt the report of the
Elections Director and authorize him
to proceed in accordance with it.
The new election plan has as its
j imary objective the participation
of as many students as possible.
Under the plan, the election would
consist of tw"o and a half weeks of
campaigning, with the Spring Break
in between. Dates would be:
Wednesday,. Feb. l - Cannpaigning
Wednesday. Feb. 28 - Spring Break
Tuesday & Wednesday. March 12 &
13-General Campus Elections.
Wednesday, March 13-Ballots count-
As part of the program, a "speakers
bureau," would be established through
which candidates could arrange a
complete campaign covering the whole
campus. Each fraternity and sorority
house, as well as each house in the
dormitories, would be contacted, and
each house president would be asked
to call, a general meeting for each
member of the house at which candi-
dates could present their positions
and state their platform. This would
alleviate much of the traditional hard-
ship on both the presidents and the
candidates, as it Would be a coordi-
nated program giving each candidate
an equal chance. In addition, the
Spring Break coming as it would just
before the election would give a need-
ed respite to the candidates.- -
Again two days of general elections
would be held with polling booths
placed at strategic spots on the diag
and other places to provide ample op-
portunity for anyone to vote.
Figures for winter '68' occupancy
aren't compiled yet; however, an A£c
curate estimate placed the total num-
ber of students living in dormitories at
close to 10,000. approximately 5,000 0f
which are freshmen.
The final new feature would elimi-
nate the frantic "count-nite." Very
simple IBM cards would be drawn up
containing the names of all candidates,
placed into a University computer es-
pecially programmed for the election,
counted, and ensure an accurate and
complete and simple counting proce-

Dare we reveal the secret of
Frankie and Johnny? The amaz-
ing, story should not be the pri-
vate miracle of the crowd that
was at Smitty's South Quad last
night. Bob Franke (Frankie), folk
singer, guitarist and song writer,
does amazing things with a sim-
ple glass of plain old water.
At least that's the way it
seemed. Franke and his bass part-

Franke's performance was fol-
lowed by a guest appearance of
the duo, Dave Kahn and Bill
Meyers. Their bluesy Southern
folk contrasted sharply with the
big-city flavor of most of Franke's
work. Yet, the almost separate
traditions the two groups follow1
easily complement one another:
the twang of the blues and the
fast pulse of protest music.
There was more than music,
however, last night at Smitty's.
Campus news and petitions min-
gled with the music. Circulating
