TINY ALICE' DISCUSSION,
Panel Differs On: Albie Sybolism
TONIGHT AT8:00 P.M.I
By JOHN CRUMB, JR.
Was there any significance to
Albee's immensely emotive Work,
"Tiny Alice." This was the sub-
ject of a panel discussion held aft-
er Wednesday's ACT performance.
"The play was about God," said
Rev. James Bell of Canterbury
House. "God in the, triune char-
acters of. the Lawyer, the Butler
and Miss Alice. He's the perverse
God who talked from the masks,
who opened the" door at the top
of the stairs leading from the rep-
lica of the mansion. Like the play's
message,, you think you 'see him,
and poof . .. he isn't there. You
reach for him but grasp at only
emptiness .,.. and thiat, is ,God. .
In the end he leaves Julian alone.'
"Julian could also be a symbol
for the sacrificial lamb," ',said Prof.
Richard Burgwin of the Theatre
Arena. "Or he could. be Julian .the
"Symbols are set up," said Prof.
James 'Ginden of, the English ,de-
partment, "but they don't sym-
bolize what we expect thef to sym-
bolize. The symbol and the sub-
stance of the play are not the
"Albee is playing on four lev-
els," said Burgwin, "that .which is
real; those fantasies that he thiniks
are real; those fantasies" that he
inpws ,are fanias sy "'and those
realities that he thinks are fan-:
":As such, his message isn't very
profound-, and,; his symbols . lack
clarity, There> is - no surging of
coherence that will work.
"Maybe Julian is the only; real
person in.,the play . . .and what
happens could,:,all be .in. Julian's
"It is about how, a man traps:
himself by inventing things he
cannot live by," said' Grinden.
"There is always this kind .of co-
herence: . that there is no_ co-
herence. What he did, he did with

a brilliant virtuosity."
"It's a musical work," said pro-
ducer; Edward Hastings, "with
notes and: chords on a staff. The
playwright wrote' a treble which
winds through the fabric of the
production. He brought together
all the great issues of existence at
once (birth, death, and copulation
said, T. S. Elliot). Albee has writ-
ten strong chords to create a to-
tal, sonorous cocaphony. Some
things Jar, but they :can't help
but' to excite."
"It's like a 'great banquet at
which I am the guest," said Prof.
Frederick Wyatt, head of the' Psy-
chology Clinic. "The, atmosphere
is wonderful ,the cooking excellent,
but I'm not sure I like the man
who wrote the cookbook .. .
'"What. is missing" is any 'sort
of comprehensive 'experience. Just
feeling is not worth the expense
"Why must there bean abstract
value?", said .Prof: qrinden. ,Isn't
it~ like,, the c~ickon-egg cycle:,

Orlebeke continued that, if the
University and Flint community
do not seem willing to cooperate
in the plan to develop an inde-
pendent . school, the state board I
could advise the Legislature to,
withhold the money for four-year
'operation of Flint College.
Brennan. gave no indication of
what action might be taken to
exert pressure for a settlement
along the lines discussed at
Wednesday's board meeting. Board
member Edwin Koaak, however,
has requested an informal opinion
from Attorney 'General Frank.
Kelley on the possibilities for legal
backing for the boar'd's position.
Brennan singled out Flint com-
munity leaders as the major road-
block to an amicable- settlement.
Although .he said ' he is somewhat
unhappy that the University has
not given public support 'to the
position he outlined with Romney
Wednesday, he praised University
officials. for "their good faith and
sincere efforts to .work with the
board in settling the question."
He credited 'Flint leaders with
doing a fine job in developing the
city's present educational system,
but said they are hurting them-
selves by not cooperating" with the
In the long run, he said, setting
a precedent for acting Independ-
ently in an area that is clearly
within the board's province of
planning and coordination. will
prove as disadvantageous to Flint
as to other areas of the state.'
Flint leaders involved in the
college issue were not available for
comment last night, but Novak,
a Flint :resident as well as a board
member, said he noticed indica-
tions that the Flint community is
becoming more willing to go along
with the board's 'present stand.
"There appears to 'be increasing
acceptance of the inevitability of
an autonomous school replacing
"the branch in the future," he comn-
menited,, noting that a -local 'com-
mittee' dealing with' the college
problem -plans to meet shortly to
discuss the implication of Rom-
ney's recent proposals.
Novak also cited an editorial in
Wednesday's Flint Journal, which
gave serious consideration to the.
possibility '-of' an' auto nmous
school beig' established. The
paper has heretofore opposed any-
thing but indefinite continuation'
of the University branch.
