Hollywood Leaves 'How To Succeed' Play
Basically Unchanged for Excellent Film

Quote 70 Pct. Efficiency

By CHARLES TROY
"How to Succeed in Business
without Really Trying" is an ex-
ample of that surprising new mo-
tion picture breed: the well-filmed
Time was when the transcon-
tinental voyage from New York to
Hollywood would leave a hit show
scarred and hitless in the wake of
filmdom's foolish tampering. But
the Oscars and acclaim for "West
Side Story," "My Fair Lady," and
"The Sound of Music" in recent
years have changed all that.
"How to Succeed" is in some ways
even better than its Broadway
Of course, some songs and
dances have been sacrificed (in-
cluding, inexplicably, the hilarious
production number, "C o f f e e
Fine Generation Needs
P roof readers, Editing
Break") to the cause of developing
the love story. In most cases, the
songs were weak anyway, and as
a result of the new emphasis, J.
Pierpont Finch's mixture of cun-
ning and heart seems far more ac-
ceptable than it was originally.
Briefly, the story of "How to
Succeed" concerns a young dy-
namo, Finch, who aspires to rise
to the top of the corporate tree
in the World Wide Wicket Com-
pany. As a guide, he relies on a
little book entitled, appropriately
enough, "How to Succeed in Busi-
ness without Really Trying,"
whose credo is so venal that Jay
Gould would have blushed for
shame to read it. In the course of
Finch's meteoric ascendency (you
would swear it happens in less
than a week!) from window-wash-
er to chairman of the board, he
acquires a girlfriend, a nepotistic
rival, and a wild succession of
hobbies, interests, and back-
grounds calculated to melt the
heart of the coldest executive.
Frank Loesser's score is certain-
ly not up to his "Guys and Dolls".
best, but the songs that remain
are ingratiatirg, tuneful, and wit-
tily attuned to the situtation. Par-
tially because of this integration,
"Brotherhood of Man" and "I Be-
lieve in You" are the only two that
have become even moderately suc-
cessful outside the show, and both
are performed well in the movie
In fact, the latter is even im-
proved upon, since Rosemary sings
her reprise of' it (1) to Finch, not
alone, and (2) before Finch ren-
ders it himself in the executive
washroom. The reverse treatment
gives this brilliantly satirical song
even more bite than its first pos-
Repeating his stage triumph,
Robert Morse brilliantly embel-
lishes his portrayal of Finch and
makes narcissism seem the most
desirable trait of the year. Rudy
Vallee is a carryover as J. B. Bigg-
ley, and thank goodness, for the
part was made for him.
Michele Lee, a newcomer as
Rosemary, uses her wonderfully
warm, charm and beauty to make
Finchs girl much more than a
mere caricature. Anthony Teague
plays the namy-pamby nephew
with competence, but he some-
times becomes almost silly.in his
determination not to appear sin-
David Swift, as director-adap-
tor, faced the problem of how to
be faithful to an indoor, one-
locale show and not have the re-
sult seem like a photographed
play. His solution was inevitable:

skyline we've gaped at many times.

second recent Soph Show subject

WASHINGTON (;P) - Statistics
of the Job Corps showed yesterday=
it has a 70 per cent efficiency rat-
ing on its job - getting school
dropouts off the do-nothing road.
As of the end of February, 64,-
878 young men and women had
been in the Job Corps for varying
lengths of time, some only for a
week or so, since it began in Jan-
Of the total, 45,415, or some 70
per cent, were doing something.
Some 76 per cent of these had a
job, 14 per cent had returned to
school and 10 per cent had joined
the military services.
Some 33,000 now are enrolled
in 115 Job Corps centers. They are
16 to 22 years of age, are free to
leave when they wish but may
stay as long as two years. Most of
them finish a skill training pro-
gram in about nine months.
Behind the statistics there are
individuals with success stories
and there are disappointments,
boys who expected a job at $2.50
an hour and had to settle for
$1.25. There are some who haven't
found a job.
"We're making a concerted ef-
fort, every effort to place them,"
Job Corps Director William Kelly
said in an interview.
One of the problems, Kelly said,
is that many of the Job Corps
graduates still are just 16 and 17
years old, aigd this creates a prob-
lem with work laws and insurance.
There's the boy who told a re-
porter he liked the Job Corps "but
they've got to stop filling corps-
men's heads with all that jive like
you can demand your wage when
you graduate. No good, man.
You've got to start at the bottom."
The Job Corps tells about Alpha
Johnson of Washington who
dropped out of school in the
eighth grade, worked at odd jobs
off and on and occasionally got
into trouble with the police. He
joined the Job Corps and learned
refrigeration and heating at Ton-
gue Joint, Ore..
Now Johnson is back in Wash-
ington with a job installing heat-
ing units in new buildings. A po-
liceman in his neighborhood wrote
the Tongue Point center: "Not
only has Alpha Johnson learned
about refrigeration-and air condi-
tioning, he seems to also be so-
cially readjusted. I wish to per-
sonally thank you for this."
Critics point to the cost of the
Job Corps, some $258 million the
first year, $211 million this year
and a proposed $295 million for
the coming year.
In his poverty message to Con-
gress President Johnson said it
cost about $8,400 for each Job
Corpsman at first and estimated
it would be down to $6,700 in the
Kelly points to the cost of wel-
fare payments for those unable to
get jobs and the added income tax
payments from those with jobs.
"It's very clear to me the kind
of investment we're making," he

ly well qualified to assume the
vast responsibilities of leading our
great university," Romney said,
"We look forward to working with
him as our state meets the con-
tinuing challenge of higher edu-
cation in the years ahead "
Profs. Theodore J. St. Antoine
of the Law School and Dallas

tration School also view Fleming's
future relationships with the state
government and other groups out-
side the academic community op-
Jones said, "He's just the man

"The Regents couldn't lhave any
better person to represent the Uni-
versity with the Legislature and
others outside the academic com-
munity," St. Antoine said. "Flem-
ing is ideally suited for resolving
conflicts between different groups
and at this point in the life of
this institution this might be a
good commodity to have around."
Jones, St. Antoine and Prof.
Russell A. Smith have met Flem-
ing in various capacities in their
labor relations and labor media-
tion board activities.

er. "He is a masterful perform-

The nicest thing about freedom
of the press is that we are all
censors, and though society may
at times. argue about our right to
open certain books, it never pro-
hibits our closing any of them.
The editorial remark which in-
troduces the current issue of
Generation is enough to make
anyone want to close the magazine
before reading a single item-and,
irony of ironies, the statement is
about editorial freedom! A bit
more editorial attention to the
thankless job of proofreading and
a bit less self-indulgent devotion
to "the cause" would have made
this fine issue of the campus inter-
arts magazine all the more com-
A play by Richard Simon, '69,
is the most remarkable and wholly
praiseworthy item in this Genera-
tion. It is the most ambitious un-
dertaking by far, and also the
most successful. "Our Mutual
Childhood" could do without its
Alice in Wonderland motif--cer-
tainly an unnecessary support for
a play so imaginatively conceived
-and would benefit by having the
occasional bits of whimsical nar-
rative with and flatulence re-
None of these little faults, how-
ever, is as distracting as the col-
lection of printing, errors which
mars the text on the play. And
even Simon's last words-"This is
the way the play ends. Not with a
bang, not with, a blackout exactly
either, but with a whimper, a chil-
dish, non-dramatic dissipation"-
are not objectionable enough to
disqualify the success of the whole
Simon doesn't need T. S. Eliot
(who does?) and he doesn't even
need Lewis Carroll or Walt Kelly;
his imagination is significant by
itself, and deserves more attention
to its own productive integrity on
Mr. Simon's part, and serious,
generous applause on ours.
High Quality Poem
"If You Should Be Death" by
Alice Chabot, grad, is a carefully
constructed poem which survives
a false beginning to become a
beautiful lyric piece of the highest
quality. Miss Chabot obviously has
a fine ear and a genuine grace of
mind and voice. One can only ob-
ject, I think, to the first two lines
of the poem, and they seem to be-
long to its source in the imagina-
tion and not to the poem itself.
In "The Leopard of Oklahoma
City" by Dennis Rosemann, grad,
the narrative is not quite clear at
times, and there are too many
passages of anti-rhythmical prose
unheard into poetry, too many de-
tails which somehow are not
translated from the journalistic
substructure of report into' the
true substance of-the poem. But
there are also moments of bril-
liance or almost-brilliance, such
as the leopard's having. "instead
of wild goats and lambs for food,
only cans filled with plastic bags
filled with garbage."#
Fiction Piece Dissipated I
The only piece of prose fiction
in this issue, a short story "Ruthie
at Christmas" by Lemuel John-
son, grad, pays epigraphic obei-
sance to Shakespeare. In its execu-
tion, however, it is flabby and self-
indulgent. The focus of the story
is dissipated among a variety of
cliches ranging from sex to anti-
Christmas, from race to local
color. Only one's respect for John-
son's sure and sympathetic under-
standing of the human beings
evoked in the story saves "Ruthie
at Christmas"-though that par-
ticular saving is itself significant.
The current issue also contains
an "Art Folio," with two fine and
interesting lithographs by Michele
Doner, grad, and pictures of sev-
eral ceramic vases by Clair Col-
quitt, '68. One suspects that the
latter are remarkable creations,
though black and white photog-
raphy hardly demonstrate this
quality. And there are two music
entries. One, "Armistice," by Sid-
ney Hodkinson, grad, is basically
unintelligible to the layman;
though movements of musical
tone, volume, and intensity can be
seen in the imagination, and per-
haps one can even contemplate
what propose themselves as the
notations for dance.
Fiedler in Impressive Light
There is also an interview with
Leslie Fiedler, conducted by Ron-
ald Rosenblatt, '68, and Megan
Biesele, grad. The editors employ
a crude but honest technique of
non-editing their material. Still,
the interview presents Fiedler in
perhaps the most impressive light
he has been allowed in Ann Arbor.
The interview also presents a
capsule description of Fiedler's
"new novel," called the New West-
ern, which may be the most hu-
morous idea seen in print since
a really funny Gargoyle joke.
Finally, one supposes that the
questions asked Fiedler were in-
tentionally exaggerated for the
sake of eliciting interesting re-
sponses, and on this ground one
accepts them. But even as one says
this, one has a terrible, haunting
suspicion that they may have been
serious-and if that is so, then the
total performance of "the wild
moan of literary criticism" may
well be to blame. Thus is might
even be a blessing that Genera-
tion's print is so small as to be
scarcely visible to the naked eye.'

of the English Department.)
take the center of the stage; he
involves the group."
St. Antoine said, however, that
Fleming is "not a towering intel-
lect; he is a humanizer, rather
than an innovator. He is probably
not as much a source of original
ideas but more able to translate
ideas into practicality."
Gretchen Groth, Grad, chair-
man of the student committee, met
Fleming last Friday night when
he met with several Regents and
the chairmen of the student, fac-
ulty and alumni committees.
She said, "Fleming appeared as
a man more concerned with the
University than his own prestige.
He is very concerned about mak-
ing the University a community
whereby the faculty and students
relate to each other outside as
well as inside the classroom and
wants more meaningful contacts
with students. He enjoys talking
