By KEN FIFER
mething beautiful is hap-
1g in East Quad - Chrys-
the literary magazine of
Residential College. The
'y and prose of more than.
Y student writers has been
ered, and one senses that
selections have been made
some care. Not everything
is of the first quality, but
little of it is dull. As the
suggests, the Chrysallis
ibutors often must rely on
uniformed ' energy and
sty to compensate for im-
ct craft, but as the maga-
seems very ready to accept
in these terms, so too it
'ves our acceptance and

support. And this, of course, of
course, of course, is for our own
sake. It is something' beautiful,
this gift we have been given.
The majority of the writers
seem especially concerned with
problems of self-location, with
finding a place from which to
speak. Less expectable, and more
encouraging, some are also look-
ing for a place from which to
listen. Jim Guthrie's long poem,
"Voyages 1-4," provides an ef-
fective entry into four different
landscapes, though he realizes
no sure resolution can be accom-
plished:
and I find that
since I am unknown at my
,point of departing

I am unsure of all my
arrivals.
Alan Wanttaja examines his
own "Home," and exhibits a
generosity and affection toward
his younger brother in "The
Junior Marines" that shapes no
final judgement, but voices a
human response:
I can't believe that he will
Begin brushing his hair
After all these years.
He lives too quietly
For shouts and commands.
Less finished but still very
readable work has been provided
by Jon Adelson, in "On the
Point of Turning Solid," a good
but uneven piece; Joanne Slat-

n effort at art in a yearbook

-off, "You Didn't Hold My
Hand," and Malcolm Hein, a
talented but erratic poet, in
"Savagery."
Gary Huggins comes close in
several of his poems to estab-
lishing an interesting and com-
plexly personal persona. Alan
Kistler's poem "James Kwag-
shung Wong," is well-handled
and funny. The experimental
work of Daniel Carr, Riki For-
man, and Chas Murphy pro-
vide futher excitement, though
in need of more thought and
more rewriting.
Chris Morang, Daniel Rattner,
Ellen Frankel, deserve longer
comment than I can give them
here. Michael Koenigsknecht's
story with its highly stylized
perspective seemed the best of
the prose, though that too needs
much work.
The art-work, by David Lap-
eza and Chas Murphy, and the
photography, by Rick Gans,
Shelley Banks, and David Beall;
help make Chrysallis beautiful
to look at. The quality of David
Lapeza's drawings seem espe-
cially deserving of praise - the
talent they display is consistent
and considerable.
Chrysallis, if I can judge fair-
ly, will attract less attention,
and less of an audience, than it
deserves. Almost certainly most
of us will pass it by, thinking
ourselves too busy, too put upon.
Later, casually, we will complain
about the university's insensitiv-
ity, its dehumanization.

SUB-LET
SERVICE
WE RENT YOUR PLACE FOR YOU ..,

By LAURIE HARRIS
3inding it into two paper'
ked volumes and inserting it
o a colorful yellow holder
ds an air of artistry to this
,r's Michiganensian. A n d
istry is what the edition is all
)ut.
'he entire book is photo-
phs with a few typical year-
ik phrases, but each phrase
iley attempts to 'have mean-
. For instance, one 'of the
er statements: "Motivating
ganizing Forwarding Leaping
ierging Restoring4" balanced
inst quotes from that campus
orite, Herman Hesse.
3ut it is not words, that make
Michiganensian a relative-
beautiful piece of work, for
entially that it what it is,
the photographs. They
azingly enough cover every
ect of the past year with a
.sitivity to what has really
n happening. And in many
es, as with ROTC and the,
uth U., incident, photograhic
I printed statements h a v e
ned an editorial meaning.

It is not merely the elimina-
tion of pages of the Greek sys-
tem that improve this book; it
is the addition of what actually
comprises college life: movies
and records, in addition to the
standard concerts, plays, and
football games.
One particularly interesting
sports layout shows three pic-
tures, two of. which have had
a certain amount of grey drop-
ped from them. It is, t h e i r
juxtaposition on the pages and
the technique itself, which
creates an intriguing pattern.
But sports pictures tend to be
repetitive year after year.
Or the beginning of 'Volume
II' which displays a series of
beautiful photographs, meant to
be just that. A few of them
depict a feeling about college
life; carefree i spring days or
bicycles, left to shiver, covered
by wet snow. But light diffusing
through a tree or icicles tells
little about the University com-
munity. What it is, is art and
the Michiganensian should be

proud of an attempt of this
type.
It takes bravery to do what
every college and high school
yearbook wants to do; to
talk about a year in pictures
and drop all the meaningless
jabber. And this book does pre-
sent the year -- from the mid-
dle of last summer to the pages
and pages of senior pictures;
but of course, they too, are
part of the University. The last
step of nerve that the book
must take is to drop those
Teams of seniors.
In general, however, the all-
encompassing' attempts at ban-
ner headlines are kept at a
minimum with the emphasis
relying on photographs to tell
the story, and this year's pic-
tures, though sometimes ham-
pered by boring sequences and a
very poor printing job, try to
do just that.
