New Christy Minstrels Provide
DelightfuWitty Performane

Rhythm is a pseudonym for the
New Christy Minstrels. Their ef-
fervescence infected last night's
audience and accompanied them
in familiar restrains as they emp-
tied the auditorium.
Among the favorites heard in
the concert were "Green Green,"
"Today" and "Saturday Night."

These songs typify the striking
melodies that the Minstrels em-
Also enthusiastically received
were the Minstrels' rendition of
the Civil War song, 'Follow the
Drinking Gourd" and their newest
hit, "There But For Fortune." The
quality found in their resonance
was apparent even in the acous-
tical setting of Hill Aud.

Experimental Films
Boring, Exhausting

Milton Cohen's "Hexus," the
first presentation of yesterday's
experimental film program, is not
really a flm at all. Its sensual
effect depends on the interaction
of photographic images with var-
ious objects (which include Mr.
Cohen himself) which revolve in
front of the screen.
It Is really not much more a
work of art than, a display of
fireworks is, but it is entertaining,
for a while at least.
The trouble is that it drags on
for an incredible forty-five min-
utes, which gives it the distinction
of being a truly exhausting work
that taxes neither brain or emo-
As the evening progressed and
the audience got treated to . a
longer and "longer train of un-
distinguished color displays and
filmic jokes (including one very
funny movie about watermelons),
the horrible thought dawned on
me that the program might end
without a single attempt at any-
thing serious. Finally it came in
the form of Bruce Baillie's
"Quixote," a rambling, wordless
sermon on just about every evil

thing anybody ever saw in Ameri-
can society.
Baillie begins by focusing on
the sharecroppers and Indians of
the Southwest as they face the
incursions of a barbarous and
mechanized society. Then he
switches to color and in no time
at all brings in a basketball game,
a circus, a dead buffalo, Super-
man, Pop-eye,. the march on
Montgomery, the war in Viet Nam,
etc., etc., etc. The only idea that
can claim any clearness whatso-
ever is derived from the rather
pleasing ambiguity of the title.
At first it seems that the
Quixotes are the poor farmers
living in their outmoded world of
horse-drawn carts and adobe huts.
But the real Quixotes are soon
shown to be everybody else in
society, who is, wrapped up in a
fantasy world of spacemen, movie
idols, and military might. The
moral is twofold: 1) life is an il-
lusion; and 2) sin and greed are

The Minstrels have adopted
their style after a company of pre-
Civil War entertainers founded by
Edwin Christy. The original group
entertained its audiences with
whimsical jokes, slapstick and folk
songs. The Minstrels have en-
veloped and extended this spirit to
a point where their humor and
music almost stand equal.
It is difficult to single out any
one factor as the reason for the
Minstrels' dynamic achievement.
Their clean-cut, youthful and
typically American appearance is
an integral part of their over-
whelming popularity. However,
their foot-tapping, hand-clapping
inducement cannot be overesti-
In 1964, at the invitation of
President Johnson, t h e New
Christy M i n s t r e l s entertained
White House dignitaries. In April,
1965, they became the first folk-
group to be featured at New
York's Copacabana, after settingl
the precedent for folk-oriented
music in nightclubs, supper clubs'
and the concert series as well as
to television and radio audiences.
At their 1965 appearance at the
San Remo Festival, they captured,
first and second place to become
the first American artists ever. to
win the competition. Prior to their'
overseas debut, President Segni of
Italy said, "This is the kind of
music which Europe should know
more about." Within four days
after the Festival, these two songs
became number one hits through-!
out Italy.
The Minstrels perform en masse,
and each individual of the group'
has a specialty which can be per-
formed as a solo. They accompany
themselves on banjos, guitars and
bass. The result is a clever con-
coction of minstrelsy.

amount and character since Mr.
Power's initial days as a regent."
Kelley's report is the last of
three issued on the University
Microfilms-University relationship.
The first, released by the state
Auditor General on Dec. 8, con-
cluded that two minor business
relationships between Power and
the University constituted a con-"
flict of interest.
The second statement was re-
leased by the Regents at their
December meeting. The product
of an investigation requested by
Power after his business operation
was first questioned, the report re-
vealed no conflict of interest. Both
the Auditor General's report and
the University's statement were
turned over to the Attorney Gen-
erals office and were used in pre-
paration of yesterday's opinion.
Differing Opinions
Power, who is President of the
American Association of Univer-
sity Governing Boards, an or-
ganization comprised of regents
and trustees from throughout the
country, and President of the In-
ternational Micrographic Congress,
questioned the difference between
Kelley and the University counsel's
differing interpretations of con-
flict of interest in his statement
of resignation.
He noted that the University in-
vestigation said there was no con-
"It is difficult for a layman
like myself to understand fully
how different lawyers can arrive
at such- divergent opinions on the
same facts. But this is beside the
point. That the attorney general,
in pursuit of his duties as guar-
dian of the public interest, now
deems the relationships under
consideration inappropriate, must
be regarded seriously.
