By JANIS LUBAWSKI
Michael Hamburger, poet and
translator, and most recently
Purington Lecturer at Mt. Holyoke
College, gave a public reading of
his poerty in the UGLI Multipur-
pose Room Sunday afternoon. Re-
citing selected poems in the .chron-
ological order of their wi ting,
Hamburger created not only an:
image of himself as a poet but de-
lineated many of the obstacles
facing the poet in -search of a suit-
able mode.'
Mr. Hamburger's earliest poems
express the literary conception of
the poet as "rare ivory and
weighted with the best of inten-
tions," as one to whom "some
higher power" has assigned the
task of writing. These poems em-
ploy formal verse patterns, poetic
diction, and try very hard to be
"symbolic" or "universal." In re-
trospect, Mr. Hamburger remarked,
they are poems of the student who
has studied his tradition very
hard.
Beginning half-way through his
soon-to-be-published Weather and
Season, Mr. Hamburger's style
demonstrates a sharp change in
technique as well as subject mat-

ter. Employing free verse and
avoiding metaphor and simile, he
seeks to convey such experiences
as dreams and madness by means
of a photographic precis -ss of
description and a ,flatness of lan-
guage. His earlier fascination with
T. S. Eliot has receded: "I amn now
writing my own poems and don't
care if they're like anyone else's."
Mr. Hamburger also read some
of his poems dealing with city life
with its "mortuary of metal," and
others concerned with war. In
"U.S. Offers Condolence and Aid
to Vienarnese Bomber in Error,"
he has literally transcribed the
first two paragraphs of a N.Y.
Times story and then very straight-
facedly presented what happens in
a village when we attempt to blast
it "off the maps and out of our
minds."
More satisfied now with the
quality of his work and the in-
creasing facility with which he
has learned to deal with experi-
ence, Mr. Hamburger regrets the
lyrical tone which he has had to
sacrifice. But now his poems are
his and no longer, like the tide,
"too much in rhythm, jarring by
rote."

DETROIT (A') - A new civil
rights tactic-the national strike-
will be tested among Detroit's
half-million Negroes with a boy-
cott supporting Adam Clayton
Powell.
The target date is set for
Feb. 13.
Two weeks ago, the U.S. House
of Representatives stripped Powell,
a Democrat representing New
York's Harlem district, .of his
chairmanship of the Mouse Edu-
cation Committee. It also denied
him a seat in the House-pending
an investigation of his handling
of federal funds.
, From Local to National
"We're going to try it out in
Detroit," a spokesman said. "Tak-
ing it national is the next step."
The ,decision followed several
conferences between Detroit Ne-
gro leaders and nationally known
civil rights figures, including
Stokley .Carmichael and Dick
Gregory.
The Powell issue provides a cat-
alyst - for- experimenting with a
tactic aimed at reviving the civil
rights movement, the group said.
"We want the House to treat
Mr. Powell as a congressman, not
a black congressman," said the
Rev. Albert B. Cleage Jr., spokes-
man for the strike committee.
The Detroit group, calling itself
the United Strike Committee in
Support of Powell, wants to re-
verse both decisions.
"We want his seat and his chair-
manship back," the Rev. Cleage
said.
Could Shut Down City
The group will ask the 520,000
Negroes in Detroit-30 per cent of
the- city's . population-to boycott}
jobs, schools and businesses on the
planned .day.

"If the individual Negro in De-
troit will make the sacrifice, the
transportation system will stop,
schools will close, factories will
not operate, the postal system will
stumble to a stop," the Rev. Cleage
said.
"If it works in Detroit we can
iron the wrinkles out, coordinate
it'and make it work simultaneous-
ly in 100 to 200 cities a few weeks
later," he said.
Such a demonstration-if. effec-
tive - would demonstrate Negro
power and support of Powell "and
Congress would very quickly get
the hint," Gregory and the Rev.
Cleage told a news conference.
They said that if 50 to 70 per
heeded the call for boycott they
heeded the call for boycottthey
-would consider it "doing super-
duper."
Civil rights 1 e a d e r s from
throughout the nation are being'
asked to come to Detroit to wit-
ness and evaluate the experiment
and plan coordinated boycotts for
their cities.
