By DEBORAH LINDERMAN
NEW YORK - Sheep on the
Runway is a long inconsequen-
tial piece about which it is dif-
ficult to find much to say. Prob-
ably its most alluring feature is
that it w a s written by Art
Buchwald who is reputed - at
least by the New Yorker maga-
zine - to be an alias for Wal-
ter Lippman who, it is said, as-
sumes the alias so as to let off
'the steam which his formidable
reputation as a columnist will
not permit him to let off. Pur-
portedly, "Art" is for one of
Lippman's major interest and
"Buchwald" is for t h e beech
tree under which he used to sit
in the Harvard Yard.\
However, the program notes
give a real-sounding thumbnail
biography of Buchwald's life,
ending with a tongue-in-cheek
which could as easily' apply to
a real Buchwald as to Lippman:
"After Vice-President Agnew's
criticism of the press, Mr. Buch-
wald told reporters he was
ashamed of whathe had writ-
ten in the past and from now
on he was going to trey harder;"
Sheep on the Runway is about
an American operation that gets
going in an obscure and imag-
inary kingdom called Nona-
mura, somewhere in the Hima-
layas. An. ambassador appoint-
ed by Nixon presides over the
place keeping things dull until
he is visited by a hawkish col-
umnist called - significantly-
Mayflower, who comes a-tour-
ing Southeast Asia.' Mayflower
avows an ability "to see threats
where, nobody's seen threats."
DAILY OFFICIAL
BULLETIN

Since absolutely nothing is
going on in Nonamura, he de-
duces that there is a well-laid
but extremely covert Communist
plot in the making. Before he
is through the fat and pleasant
local monarch has been deposed,
so has his- military successor,
and a Communist is in office -
the Communist's "man," how-
ever, is really an agent for the,
CIA, and so-round robin.
All these upheavals get less
funny as one succeeds the oth-
er, and Buchwald/Lippman's
steady fusillade of satirical
cracks undergo a similar dimi-
nuendo. One of the subtler as-
pects of the comedy is a pair
of photographs hanging in the
ambassadorial drawing room -
one of Nixon and one of Agnew
(Nixnew)- that are crooked at
the beginning of each act, al-
though they have just been
straightened in the act before.
Mr. Buchwald's targets also
include an economist from MIT
who snaps about GNP's a n d
traising their standard of liv-
ing," an Army general who ped-
dles deadly weapons exactly as
if he were selling literal hard-
ware, and a Radcliffe girl who
leads a demonstration for equal
rights for women in a country
where, as its pacific monarch
,says weepingly, "we don't even
have equal rights for men."
In Nonamura sheep-raising
is a major industry, and when
the U.S. general zeroes down in
a private plane to- land there,
he is incensed to find, of all
things, sheep on the runway.
Thence the title of the play and
its "point."

The 2%/I-hour documentary,
film begins with the birthj of
King's non-violent movement in
1955 - during the 11-month

and ends with the Memphis gar-
bage strike and King's assassi-
nation.
Events in King's life are brid-
ged in the film by symbolic
readings from the Bible, black
poetry and King's own speeches.
His speeches are also used as
commentary. In one section, po-
lice in Birmingham, Ala., a r e
shown battling demonstrators
with hoses and dogs, while King
is heard saying: . . . "We will
match your capacity to inflict
suffering with our capacity to
endure suffering. We will meet
your physical force with s o u I
force. We will not hate you, and
yet we cannot in all good con-
science obey your evil laws.
"Do t6 us what you will.
Threaten our children and we
will still love you_ .
