Jazz's most important and controversial new star
By HUGH HOLLAND
If you haven't guessed, it's the
year of the spy-flicks. Whether
the popularity of this fad is any
indication of a nation's subcon-
scious attempt to understand,
avoid, escape or participate in the
ever-increasing warmth of the cold
war, is a point to ponder. Be-
cause of what James (Bond varie-
ty) started, James (Coburn this
time) *manages to carry on quite
"Our Man Flint," like "The Sil-
encers," is a spoof on, and a part
of, the spy-flick fad. Flint is
the ultimate in spy perfection. He
is only at the service of the Presi-
dent anld, even then, only at
Flint's own discretion.
Further, there seems to be lit-
tIe Flint doesn't know or can't do.
As for gimmicks-there is that
fantastic little lighter that has
been so well advertised. However,
of its 82 proclaimed uses, only 15
show up in the film. But have
faith dear viewer, our man Flint
must return, and then 67 other
uses will obviously appear.
Our man Flint also satisfies the
good red - blooded - all - Ameri-
can-boy lust image with not one
but three (count 'em, three) beau-
tiful bodies living with him. And
naturally, by the end of the adven-
ture he adds a fourth.
So, let's see, that takes care of
sex, sensationalism, sensuality and
sarcasm. What's left is the big S
for the spy recipe, sadism.
"Our Man Flint" satisfies those
typical American yearnings with
a few very healthy fights (includ-
ing one in a John which should be
seen to be believed) and one very
sick "conditioned paradise."
The spoof in "Our Man Flint"
is of times very clever (the great
boullabaise hunt, the 007 fight)
and generally very funny. Much is
heavy-handed, with Coburn's cool;
suave, panther-like ability, it real-
ly doesn't seem to matter. It
doesn't even matter that tech-
nically "Our Man Flint" is much
better than both of the last two
All that really does matter is
that "Our Man Flint" is a very

The Career Counseling Service,
one of the four primary divisions
of the Bureau of Appointments of
the University, renders aid to stu-
dents who are undecided about
Unfortunately, the majority of
the student body is unaware of
the services offered to the individ-
ual student by this agency. Ac-
cording to a high official of the
Bureau of Appointments, this
Agency is primarily concerned with
students who have doubts about
their future vocation or are un-
aware of the requirements of their
This agency; which is open to
all undergraduates, sets up inter-
views with prospective employers,
offers valuable suggestions to in-
quiring students, and distributes
information pamphlets to all in-
Draft Causes Vacancies
Because of the steadily increas-
ing draft requirements there are
numerous positions waiting to be
filled and interested employers are
even speaking to draft-elegible
men. Often these employers will
hire men for as little as a month
or two, with the intention of re-
hiring them when their military
service is over.
Many interesting and varied jobs
are brought to the student's atten-
tion through this bureau such as
medical training librarians and
textbook salesmen which are pres-
ently in great demand.
The job of selling textbooks is,
an especially attractive one for
college graduates; it caters to those
individuals who find the univer-
sity atmosphere alluring, but are
not academically inclined enough
to become professors.
Although 681 students were plac-
ed in positions by this agency last
year, many students do not util-
ize the numerous, facilities of this
bureau. This is unfortunate, be-
cause the services rendered by this
bureau are only part of the over-
all services offered by the Univer-
sity and there is no extra charge
for counseling advice.

Style of musical performance is"
for many people just as important'

Solisti Veneti embued the music
they played Wednesday evening'
in Rackham with an historical
accuracy too rarely encountered
in professional ensembles.
What is the point of perform-
ing all music with the nineteenth
century "Romantic" ideal? Vivaldi:
or Bach, or Mozart, etc. had no
idea of what things would be like
many years hence; consequently
a performer should be criticized
at least as much for bad stylistic
perspective as for missing notes.
Performers can get away with the
bad style more readily, however,
because most of the time audiences
don't really care what they listen
to as long as it sounds nice to
them; a wrong note is much more
easily detected by the lethargic
I Solisti Veneti and Claudio Sci-
mone, conductor, showed in their
playing a knowledge of the per-
formance practices of each of the
eras in which the compositions
were created. In "The Four Sea-
sons" they accomplished the pas-
sagework with the middle of the
bow and always used the on-the-
string method of playing which is
characteristic of the Baroque.
Their vibrato was not one which
surrounded the pitch with pathos
and "feeling," but one which var-
ied the intensity of the' sound
without altering the tone.
By the time Rossini was writ-
ing music, styles had changed, and
this was evidenced in their play-
ing. Among others, gradual chang-
es of dynamics rather than sud-
denly switching from loud to soft
a chromatic vibrato, and the use
of the whole bow, created quite
a different effect. Thus, monotony
was avoided by legitimately instill-
ing greater variety into the play-
Texture and Balance
Ritards at the ends of move-
ments were not always smooth and
tempo changes within a movement
were often awkward, but texture
and balance of the musical strands
found their proper perspective. The
loud passages did not have to
sound strained because the soft
portions were so beautifully deli-
cate-a characteristic found in
few performing groups.
These 13 musicians showed what
can be done with good music and
the right approach. The audience

"The Negro musician is a reflection of the Negro people as a social and cultural
phenomenon. His purpose ought to be to liberate America aesthetically and socially
from its inhumanity. [This inhumanity] is not basic to America and can be exorcised. I
think the Negro people through the force of their struggles are the only hope of saving
America, the political or the cultural America."-Archie Shepp.
