but disclaimed any viable pro-
grams for effecting a female draft.
"From the standpoint of equality

ed, "but not from any practical

"Women would be worse draft-

- Berman's threats to cut staff
salaries;
- Beinman's hiring of three
former staff members without the
knowledge or approval of any
members of the editorial board;
- Berman's "harassment" of
the State News editors in their
community newspaper project.
The staff is assisting in the pub-
lication of a newspaper for resi-
dents of Lansing's west side, a
black neighborhood;,
- Berman's refusal to allow the
State News to join College Press
Service's nation-wide telex sys-
tem. His refusal came despite the
generally affluent status of the
paper. The State News has. the
largest budget of any student
newspaper in the country.
Brill said yesterday he had sign-
ed for the installation of a telex
unit earlier in the day without
Berman's knowl'edge.
In his letter to the board, Ber-
man charged that:
- "Edward Brill has been and
continues to be guilty of grave de-
relictions and incompetencies
which threaten the well-being of
the State News."
- Brill's approval of publication
of the controversial quote w a s
"contrary to promises made to the
advisory board at the time of his
selection" as editor-in-chief.
- Brill has failed to organize
his staff well enough to c o v e r
campus news adequately.
Meanwhile, Frank Angelo, man-
aging editor of the Detroit Free
Press, said a request for the ous-
ter of the State News from t h e
Michigan Press Association would
be forwarded to the ethics com-
mittee, which mets March 28. An-
gelo is president of the associa-
tion.

Do you remember the image of Hollywood you fostered when
you were young? .A glistening palace of lavish luxury, the never-do-
wrong haven of the big movies, the big stars, the big Romance.
Beautiful women, masculine men, Hollywood-the purveyor of Amer-
ican glamour.
But as you got older, and the protective veneer of public relations
flackery became transparent, Hollywood became a monster, a fake
structure of tinsel, a factory of fantasy. And beneath the "surface
tinsel," you would find what Groucho Marx did-"the real tinsel."
And then you had the chance to find out for sure. You got a
telegram one day from a PR man at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. They
wanted you to come to Las Vegas for five days, to see their new movie,
to talk to their stars, to drink their liquor and spend their money.
Then, to come home and write a story about it all and 'tell college
students what the new film was like, and what Hollywood was like.
And so you got on an airplane-first-class, round-trip ticket had
come in the mail two days earlier-and you were taken to Las Vegas,
where Hollywood would show you exactly how it lived, where you
would somehow get an idea of exactly how they had once made you
think Hollywood wonderful and how, today, you could think it so bad.
You got on the plane, you arrived in Las Vegas, you saw MGM
blow something over $200,000 on a weekend promotion for the benefit
of about 150 radio, television, and newspaper people from around the
country.
The film they showed was Whef'e Eagles Dare, scheduled for an
American premiere sometime within the next few weeks. It is a big,
action packed adventure film about World War II, and it stars
Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood, and the two of them demolish
half the German army (with machines guns and neat, wire-triggered
dynamite bombs) and half the laws of science (with pre-invention
helicopters and gravity-defying cable cars). Brian Hutton, a young
director who made the film with nearly $9,000,000 of MGM money,
says its the type of film for "the guy who works eight hours in the
factory and wants to be entertained."d_
You see the film on Saturday afternoon, but you arrived on
Friday night, so MGM-in the persons of a legion of Nice Young Men
from their PR department-gives you cocktail parties to occupy your
time. And a little MGM briefcase to carry your papers in. And an
MGM pen to take notes with. And an MGM beer mug-to take home
.and put your MGM pen in?

ORGAN IZATION

Around the cocktail parties and
around the showing of the film,
you don't just find the news p#6-
ple and the MGM people. Las
Vegas-a veritable suburb of Hol-
lywood, the desert between not-
withstanding-is loaded with Hol-
lywood types and they make their
presence known. Jan Murray and
Marty (Hello Dere) Allen-paren-
thesis is, not mine--show up, shake
hands with the newsmen and
women, force interviews, and man-
age to get their names in the
gossip columns.
After the film, and after a press
conference with the new president
of MGM, Louis Polk, who answers
a question concerning his favorite
films'with a string of MGM titles,
is dinner and a cocktail party.
The cocktail party has caviar and
pate and anchovies, and it has
Phyllis Diller dropping by to say
hello and get interviewed by the
TV boys. The liquor-as at all the
other functions-is the best, Beef-
eater's and Jack Daniels and De-
war's Whife Label. The, dinner
following is pheasant and suckling
pig and 30 other dishes laid out
on a seemingly miles-long buffet
table.
A PR man takes away from you
one of the few young, nice-look-
ing girls there, because her "pres-
ence is requested at Mr. Polk's
table." And the image of The
Making of a Young Starlet swirls
ito view.
Sunday is much the same and,
as on Saturday, the press people
end their official MGM day with
a free dinner and show at one of
the resort hotels. Saturday, 't vas
the Folies Bergere at the Tropic-
ana. Sunday, Phyllis Diller at the
Riviera. Monday, it will be Don
Rickles at the Sahara. You are
somewhat heartened by the fact
that the Nice Young Man from PR
