istration, will address the public
on Monday, Oct. 2, at 8 p.m. in

former U.S. Ambassador to Ja-
pan, the topic of "Europe and
Asia in American Foreign Policy"

basis for informal discussion dur-
ing the week.
The 72-year-old former cabinet
member will hold informal office
hours mornings in the Law
School. Persons wishing to meet
informally with Acheson may
make, appointments through the
Law School office. He will dine

The "Voices" program is aimed
at establishing a dialogue among
students, faculty, the community,
and honored guests. A reception
for the ,guests will be held to-
morrow at 5 p.m. in the Museum

and Mrs. Harlan Hatcher.
Acheson served as under-sec-
retary of state at the time of the
formulation of the Marshall
Plan. Charles Joiner, associate
dean of the Law School and Ach-
eson's sponsor, called Acheson
"one of the major men, who has
contributed as much as any other
person in the development of our
foreign policy and the develop-
ment of our procedural law."
Acheson has been practicing
private law for the past seven
years. Both he and Joiner worked
in recent years on a federal com-
mittee concerned with procedural
law reform.

Last of Three Parts
Running concurrently with the
New York Film Festival is a spe-
cial events program at the Lincoln
Center. This year the program is
devoted to reshowing a number
of films by Abel Gance and also
to investigating the social cinema
in America.
The Gance movies span the per-
lod 1918 ("La Dixieme Sympho-
nie") to 1965 ("Marie Tudor"). I
saw the latter on Saturday and
came away convinced that Gance
has lost none of his flair for, re-
creating historical epics since he
made his great "Napoleon."
"Marie Tudor" is based on the
Victor Hugo play. In this tale
about Bloody Mary and her lover
which was reconstructed for French
TV, Gance manages to shift the
equilibrium point of the play to
another equilibrium which is com-
pletely cinematic. He proves that
there is nothing different about
shooting for television to malting
a film, except that the long shot
doesn't work. Of course, Gance
stears clear of this pitfall.
'No Pretense of Authenticity'
The only point I wish to make
here is that historical epics can
be made so that they are except-
able to an audience provided that
there is no pretense of authenti-

The highlight 'of DeBakey's
contribution to the "Voices of
Civilization" program will be his
speech, "Science and Humanism."
It will be presented on Thursday,
Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. in Rackham Lee-
ture Hall. There will be no ad-
mission charge and the public is
invited to attend.
In addition to the lecture, Dr.
DeBakey will take part in other
activities of the program such as
attending both the concert to be
presented by the Chicago Sym-
phonic Orchestra and the con-
vocation of honorary degrees. He
also plans to tour the University's
facilities in the department of
medicine and meet both Dean
Myron Wegman of the School of
Public Health and the current
chairman of the World Health
- Dr. Charles Child of the de-
partment of medicine, will act
as DeBakey's faculty sponsor and
host during his visit. Further in-
formation on DeBakey and the
other program participants may
be obtained by visiting the Ses-
quicentennial Office at the Union
or by calling 764-4487.

This was admirably brought out
by Rossellini's new film "The Rise
of Louis 14th," also shown at the
festival and also made for T.V.
Shot in color, the film depicts how
Versaille was built. It shows Louis
as a short, rather ludicrous, pimp-
ly young man being prevailed upon
by a rich cardinal to become a'
despot more interested in personal
power than in his expressed opin-
ions which concerned the well-
being of France. Rossellini pre-
sents this story obliquely through
many details, particularly in the,
ways in which the king behaved.
So we see the magnificently ob-
noxious manner in which Louis
eats; his frolics with young ladies
at the hunt; and against this, the
squalor of the court and its ma-
chinations. We see - how Louis
brings in D'Artagnan at the be r
hest of Colbert to arrest Fouquet.
And we see the blood letting of
Mazarin. All these details result in
a Louis who is at the very least
believable and a period piece which
is consistent throughout.
No Stereotyper
Rossellini, after the showing of
the film, maintained that this was
a neo-realist film. It does have
certainly one quality of neo-re-
alism: the central character is de-.
veloped as an individual, not as a
Unfortunately some of the di-
rectors of films of the "social -ine

ma" had not learned that stereo-
types are today intolerable. A
good example of what should not
be done appeared in Britain and
Spotton's National film Board of
Canada presentation "Memoran-
dum." In the hope of being cred-
ible in their study of the German
question and the camps, they show
the return of a Canadian Jew to
Belsen. Although it might seem
that a personal opinion and in-
dividual point of view might re-1
sult, Brittain and Spotton resort
to the usual N.F.B. technique of
letting the "average" man speak
for the world. This outfit seems to
put all their faith in consensus,
but with our constant exposure to
the credibility-gap, we know when
we are being put-on.
'Art, Not Politics'
The best documentary cinema
that I saw during this trip did not
appear in the festival. It came
from the Warhol stable: "My
Hustler" and "Vinyl." The social
configurations apparent in these
films were of the type that make
one ask questions about the peo-
ple in the movies and do not en-
able one to make grandiose state-
ments about homosexuality, juve-
nile delinquincy, drugs and the
like. Warhol shows that things are
more complex than we thought
they were, not as the N.F.B. who
show that they are simpler than
