One major problem at the Uni-

ordinator to serve as the middle-
man between the national organi-
zation and SGC and the students.

chairmen aware of NSA's infor-
mation resources, set up programs
for students on campus and pub-
licize NSA's travel, discount and
insurance plans to all students.

'A Fine Madness' Tries Humor
But Triteness Overcomes Truth

Sean Connery, Joanne Wood-9
ward and New York City star inl
"A Fine Madness" which premier-
ed at the Michigan last night. New
York City was great.3
Sean Connery was fair as Sam-
son Shillitoe, poet and carpet-l
cleaner who sponges off women
and takes their money too. Sam-;
son is a self-made non-conformist.
He over-tipples at prestigious
poetry reading and topples the
pillars of society and sobriety by
admonishing Park Avenue dow-
agers: "You are all roses. Get out
of your corsets and blossom."
Samson refuses to pay his first
wife alimony. As a result he is
always on the run from a short,
fat summons server who pursues
him, via stagnant script and over-
dramatic camera shots, through
gymnasiums, around traffic jams,
up seven flight walkups and down
into the trashcans of the Bowery.
While Samson is running, his
faithful *ife (Joanne Woodward)
is pushing salami sandwiches in a
lower Manhattan deli. Among the
pickles is a little pathos. Faithful
wife fears big, brawny husband
will soon perish because he has
ceased to publish. In fact, he
hasn't published since his "Helle-
boor," which sold around 120
To save her man from suicide,
she retains the services of a psy-
chiatrist who specializes in sooth-
ing raw talents. West becomes
enamored by Shillitoe's verse: "We

have come a long way toward
ignorance, and it has all been up-
hill," and spends long evening
sessions counselling him.I
However, plot builds upon plot.
Dr. West (Patrick O'Neal) spends#
more time with his couches than;
he does in his bed. His wife can1
console herself with harp lessons"
just so long. Inevitably, she is led
astray by Samson in a whirl of"
passion. Ah, Fate.
"A Fine Madness" tries to be a
funny picture. It fails. It tries to

extol Samson as a modern noble
savage, a fun-loving society-
shunning Huckleberry Finn whose
reasoning is soundly logical only
when viewed isolated from the rest
of society. It too, fails. Samson
seems more like a Bond gone bad
than an individualized Yossarian.
And the script, situation, and cir-
cumstances are too boring to be
bawdy and too trite to be truth.
The photography of Manhattan
is excellent, but to see the movie
for that would be madness.

The spunky Honda S-90 is designed with
the distinguished T-bone frame. Unique
and tough as a fullback. A narrow 24" at
its widest point, it fits in most anywhere.
And fits into slim budgets, too. A gallon of
gas goes farther than 140 miles. The high
performance 90cc engine tops 60 mph. Join
the team. Come in for a test ride soon.
