By FRANCES HYNES
The Professional Association of
Pataphysicians put on an at least
mildly funny and at best very
amusing conglomeration of toilets
grimaces, and sheer foolishness last
night in the Little Theatre of the
Frieze Building. To get things
straight from the start, pata-
physics is defined as "the science
of imaginary solutions."
Donald Hall plays the chief pa-
taphysicia.n, Papa Ubu. T. J. Gar-
bafy plays the retired professor.
whom Papa Ubu moves in on, lock
stock and barrel stomach. Profes-
sor Achras' hobby is breeding
polyhedras.
From then on the play gets pro-
gressively wackier, a's Papa Ubu
flushes people he doesn't like
which includes almost everybody
down an unseen but audible toliet.
Apparently this is Papa Ubu's solu-
tion to the problem of not likingj
people, and it's a delightfully en-
tertaining one. Various creatures
crawl, limp, and hop across the
stage relatively ignored by the
players. Among these is a croco-
dile, referred to in the play as
z'oiseau, or a bird.
To help him with his imaginary,
solution, Papa Ubu has three help-
ers known as the Palcontents, pro-
fessional tongue-pullers and nose-
twisters, who live in boxes and ap-
pear only at night. These three as-
semble a motley chorus of songs,
praising Papa's ingenious meth-
ods of people-extermination.
The exaggerated facial contor-
tions, and gestures of T. J. Garbaty
as the professor are funny enough
in themselves, but when contrast-
ed with the mumbling but men-
acing monotone of Papa Ubu, they
are even wackier. One of the most

amusing touches in the play is a
pink conscience which emerges
from a suitcase, and eventually
gets flushed down the toilet. He is
played by Bert Hornback.
A secondary aim of Papa Ubu
is to catch the Egyptian with
whom his wife, Mama Ubu, is hav-
ing an affair. However, Papa Ubu
does not devote a great deal of
energy to this undertaking, since
"marriage implies cuckoldry -
therefore a marriage without cuck-
oldry is invalid." Madame Ubu is
played as a buxom blonde ape by
Peter Wilde. Piergiorgio plays her
Egyptian lover, who enters wrap-
ped as a mummy.
The scenery consists of triangle:
made of sheets. Pictures of skele-
tons- and toilets are flashed on this
"screen" from behind. The music
is equally different. It is of twc
types: Disembraining Song Music
and Palcontent Music (the chorus-
songs of the three helpers). If the
viewer was looking for technical
defects and underrehearsal, he
found plenty of both; but Johr
Wolgamot and Momus Llooch must
have had an awfully good time
putting the play on, and the audi-
ence had a very good time watch-
ing it.
Alfred Jarry's original French
was translated as freely as possi-
ble, not only into present idioms
but a few new ones as well, like
"Frick out the door." Jarry was
a French poet and playwright who
lived at the turn of the century
He wrote several plays about Papa
Ubu. The first was Ubu Roi, or
King Ubu. The title of last night's
play arises from the fact that
Papa tlbu is endowed with glittery
horns and a spiral shape on the
front of his clothing. Apparently
..this is supposed to be a tail.

Colleges Must
Adapt to Ne
Job Patterns
Education must continually work
to keep pace with the rapidly
changing occupational patterns
brought about by the new technol-
ogy, said Norman C. Harris, Uni-
versity professor of technical edu-
cation, recently.,
He noted that today more than
half the labor force is engaged in
work whose intellectual content is
such that post-high school educa-
tion is essential, but emphasized
that those without higher educa-
tion must not be ignored.
He sited three educational ap-
proaches which might well provide
an ultimate answer to technologi-
cal unemployment.
First, increased levels of pre-
employment education and train-
ing for almost all high school grad-
uates.
Secondly, training and retrain-
ing to make adults with obsolete
skills employable again.
Third, development of course,
and curriculum in community
junior colleges to train semi-skill-
ed workers for service jobs.
Harris said that service jobs will
become the major source of em-
ployment for that one-fourth of
the labor force without specialized
education.
