lyst elucidates them. The author
of this work, by using a rational
defense in an ironic manner, un-
covers several basic contradictions
in the United States' foreign policy.
and holds them up to ridicule. Not
less immune to the author's satire
is the supposed analyst offering
his argument: in his abstractions
and reasonings he has lost all sight
of human concerns and is blind
to monstrousness and absurdity of
his proposal.
Also of interest in this first
issue is a fictitious report on an
attempt to pollute a river, 'The
Tindall River Project." The author
of this piece seems to be amazed
that purity is still possible in our
corrupt age, for the report tells of
a scientific project which is con-
tinually frustrated in its attempts
to explain or to destroy the purity
of the Tindall River.
The magazine contains several
other short pieces, besides a few
poems. These are largely whim-
sical, and in places are a bit glib
and obscure. They have a tendency
to language games and schoolboy
obscenity. The most successful
poem is entitled "Epitaph," a com-
ment on the knowledge of death,
worked out without pretentious-
ness or mannerism.
On the whole, there is more to
commend than criticize in the
magazine, and it is certainly a
great deal better than certain
other Ann Arbor publications in-
tending to be humorous but man-
aging to be silly. Hopefully the
next issues will establish "The Vil-
lage Idiot" as a vehicle for the
expression of intelligent satire and
comical fancy, like the "Specta-
tors" and "Tatlers" of the Eigh-
teenth century, pleasing for their
wit and effective in revealing folly.

The Many Worlds of 'The University'
{/ The photo exhibit on the mall
ong the Universits esuenten-
ial was taken down this week.
The photos, however, which follow
a student from arrival on campus
x to eventual graduation, are now
preserved in a new book which is
out this week.
"The University," published by
The University of Michigan Press,
consists of 141 of the 264 photos
in the exhibits. The photographs
are the work of Prof. Phil Davis
. of the College of Architecture and
Design.
> h Davis says: "I designed the ex-,
*.:Z hibition . . . to illustrate some-
thing of the diversity and extent
of the University's resources ...
and . . . to present images of
' abstract visual interest which
might be enjoyed for their own
~ sake."
"The University" is well-done,
graphically pleasing and by far the
~ ~ best Sesquicentennial publication.

When students return for win-
ter semester, they will find their
choice of movie theatres has been
extended, to include the Wayside
Theatre. Located ton Washtenaw
Ave. in Ypsilanti Township, the
new theatre is expected to be
completed in early January.
The Wayside, which is being
built by Butterfield Theatre Inc.,
will offer films similar to those
shown by the Fox Village The-
atre, which opened last summer.
Although students will have a
greater selection of movie houses,
they are now being charged in-
creased admission prices at most
Ann Arbor theatres. Last summer
the Butterfield owned movie.

Panel to Beogn
Conflict Probe
LANSING (P)-Republican House
Speaker Robert Waldron has ap-
pointed five house members to a
joint committee on conflict of in-
terest laws governing state offi-
cials and employes.
The House-Senate panel to delve
into Michigan's recently enacted
conflict of interest legislation was
created by a House resolution.
Since passage of the law, Atty.
Gen. Frank Kelley has handed
down a series of rulings on the
issue. In one holding, Kelley said
members of governing bodies of,
state-supported colleges and uni-
versities should not serve as direc-
tors or officers of; companies do-
ing business with the schools.
Committee chairman will be Re-
publican Rep. William Hampton,,
Other Republican members will be
Reps. Edson V. Root Jr. and James
F. Smith, while Democratic mem-
bers will be Reps. J. Robert Traxler
and Jack Faxon.
Also on the committee will be.
Republican Sens. George Kuhn,
Robert Huber, and James Flem-
ing. Democrats will be Sens.
George Fitzgerald and John Bow-
man.

Campus, and University Drive In
and the recently - opened Vth
Forum increased price of tickets
from $1.25 to $1.50. The Fox Vil-
lage charges $1.75 for an evening
performance.
The University's 'two student-
run movie houses, Cinema Guild
and Cinema II, have not raised
their prices but may be forced to
because of current financial dif-
ficulties.
Student reaction to the current
raising of theatre prices has been
mild in comparison to a situation
which occurred in 1965. Picketing,
stay-ins, and attempted boycotts
were organized in opposition to a
price hike which was initiated
during the Christmas holidays
two years ago.,
