PRESIDENT NIXON said campus disorders are a
threat to intellectual freedom and civilization itself.
In a statement yesterday, Nixon limited federal action to
withholding financial aid to students convicted of violating
the law.,
"Intellectual freedom is in danger in America," Nixon
said. "Physical violence, physical intimidation is seemingly
on its way to becoming an accepted element in the clash
of opinion within university confines."
Simultaneously, Secretary of Health, Education a n d
Welfare Robert Finch issued a letter in which he told uni-
versity administrators/ that the law on cutting off aid must
be enforced and that the burden of the law's administration
falls on the universities.
AMBASSADOR ELLSWORTH BUNKER is expected to
tell President Nixon that we must continue to take a firm
stand in Vietnam.
In talks this weekend Bunker is expected to say the
U.S. effort is making progress and we must take a firm stand,
to continue to do so.
Bunker's arguments are likely to be used by Nixon ad-
ministration when Secretary of State William P. Rodgers
goes before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this
Thursday for a general public exposition of Nixon's foreign
policy.
NIGERIAN BOMBING TACTICS are threatening the
air bridge of food and relief to Biafra.
The bombinb involves the used of magnesium flares to
light up Uli Airport, located in the Biafran forest, which is
kept blacked out until seconds before a relief plane lands.
This coincides with reports that a Soviet trawler, believ-
ed to be an intelligence ship, is patrolling the waters between
Biafra and the island which relief flights leave from.
It is believed that the ship is sending information to Ni-
gerian gun positions and bombers.

300 ANGUILLANS stormed the British occupation
headquarters of British commissioner Tony Lee.
Lee was punched on the head and shoulders when thel
angry crowd, made up of mostly women and children, swarm-
ed around his car outside the headquarters on the small.
Caribbean island.
Lee took over Anguilla after British troops landed Wed-
nesday and nullified a claim of independence by the An-
guillans.

racial theme (modern parallels
abound: Muhammad Ali, after
seeing the play, said he thought
he saw his whole life being act-
ed out), there is a great poten-
tial for striking at the audience's
politics, and the emotions that
form them. On more than one
occasion during the play, var-
ious (usually black) members of
the audience will vocally show
either their support for the em-
battled prizefighter or their
enmity for the white promoters
attempting to manipulate him.
It is a crushingly emotional play,
and the intimacy is tremendous-
ly deep. Big, black James Earl
Jones is a too-real presence to
equally portray on celluloid.
THE MAN in the Glass Booth
is not as good a play structural-
ly, but has every bit the poten-
tial for great heat. Donald
Pleasence (who leaves the cast
in two weeks after playing the
role both here and in London)
is a blustery New York Jewish
millionaire who is exposed as an
ex-Nazi colonel, abducted by
Jewish agents, and then put on
trial in Israel. Interestingly, and
not so improbably, he is not an
ex-Nazi after 'all, but an embit-
tered, anti-Semitic Jew who
framed himself for the chance
to indict the pointlessness of the
Israeli attempt to avenge the
six million.
Pleasence speaks nearly half
the lines in the play, and ev-
ery other character is a care-
fully constructed foil for one or
SGC to hold'
run-off vote
(Continued from Page 1)
dorsed McLaughlin during the:
campaign, they can hardly be
considered impartial.
McLaughlin called the charge

another of his psyche. Again,
the topic ishcontroversial and
heated, touching closely to the
lives of a good part of the au-
dience; again, only one charac-
ter makes any difference. The
theme arouses ire and indigna-
tion in the audience; the player
entices the audience into the
web so it can be possible.
THE LAST play, Hadrian VII, is
the most recent to open and
probably the one which will see
the least box office success -
though it has already turned a
profit for its backers. Alec Mc-
Cowen, who, like Pleasance,
plays the same role he had in
London, is a frustrated would-
be priest who fantasizes a mer-
curial rise to the papacy and the
chance to do good for the down-
trodden and evil for the evil.
This play, too, has the same gen-
eral flavor of the others: con-
troversy (religion), e m o t i o n
(vented on those who have sup-
pressed McCowen, and theatri-
cality.) McCowen's performance,
as the others, is brilliant. The
play is flawed in many ways,
but - again a parallel, at least
with Glass Booth-- this Is en-
tirely irrelevant. Hadrian VII is
built in such a way that it serves
primarily as a platform for the
actor, one which the audience
shares with him as he unfolds
his highly personal agonies.
Simultaneously,' to be sure, as
Jones, Pleasance, and McCowen
are bursting the roof from its
seams in each of 'their respec-
tive theatres, inadequate musi-
cals like Zorba and Dear World
and tedious, mundane straight
plays like In the Matter of J.
Robert Oppenheimer are filling
seats at an equally fast rate.
They are products of the past,
really, when Broadway was
light years ahead of Hollywood
in dramatic development. Sim-
ilarly, their audiences are chief-
ly the die-hard musical fans or
the stubborn devotees of classic
proscenium theatre. The Great
White Hope, The Man in the
Glass Booth, and Hadrian VII,
though, speak directly to those
of us who are begging for a
Theatre of Vitality.
