Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom
State Campuses Hold Future for Perform in4

gA rts

North Campus Bureau
"The future of the performing
arts lies on state university cam-
puses," declared Music School
Dean James B. Wallace in a re-
cent interview.
Speaking on the growing ten-
dency for the teaching of the per-
forming arts in this country to
move onto the campuses of large
state universities, Wallace also
discussed the music school's re-
lationship as a "professional
school" within the Universty
Wallace, who has been music
school dean since 1960, sees
"conservatories as a thing of the

past," and cited the growth of the
teaching of such arts as music,
opera, voice, and ballet on state
campuses throughout.the Midwest,
the South, and more recently the
He explained that up until re-
cently there existed a somewhat
artificial dichotomy between the
"academician," who taught the
arts and the "professional" whose
career was geared to performances
before the public. However, this
dictotomy has largely been diluted
and, according to Dean Wallace,
"by looking longer, working hard-
er, and paying more," it is now
possible to secure as teachers in-
dividuals who have outstanding
reputations as public performers.

Wallace named as examples,
among others, Marilyn Mason,
John McCollum, and Ralph Her-
bert, all of whom are professors
in the music school and all of
whom entered the field of music
as performers r a t h e r than
One reason for this development
is, of course, financial. Wallace
cited as an example the fact that
most of the members of the Phila-
delphia Orchestra, which is con-
sidered among the best in the
country, supplement their incomes
by outside employment. It is only
the rare Van Cliburn and those
like him whose income from pub-
lic performances is sufficient to
live on.

The University's music school
is the second largest school of its
kind on a university campus, In-
diana being the largest. However,
Wallace, who was the driving force
behind. the construction of the
new music building on North Cam-
pus, claimed that in quality it was
second to none, with the exception
of schools like Curtis, a conser-
vatory in Philadelphia, which aim
solely at musical training. This
distinction is necessary since at
the University the goal is to
"train the total man as well as
the total musician."
Hence, there is a requirement
that an undergraduate student in
the music school must take, in
order to graduate, a minimum of

30 credit hours in such fields as
literature, foreign language, or the
social sciences.
The music school is a "profes-
sional school" offering degrees on
the bachelors, masters, and doc-
toral levels. However, its aim is
not only to train professional mu-
sicians, but, said Wallace, to "pro-
vide service courses to that part of
the student body who are not
straight music majors."
There are several thousand stu-
dents electing one or more music
courses while majoring in a field
outside of the music school. Class-
es for these non-music majors are
taught at Burton Tower for the
convenience of central campus

Since 1941, the University has
had affiliation with, and control
of, the University Division of the
National Music Camp at Inter-
lochen, Mich. There are 25 pro-
fessors from the music school in
residence there for the summer
months. Also, there are a number
of students enrolled at the school
at Interlochen for the summer
since courses there are acceptable
for credit here.
Students entering the music
school must meet the same aca-
demic standards as other enter-
ing students, in addition to dis-
playing talent in the field of music
or voice. This talent must be dem-
onstrated in an audition before a
committee of teachers in the ap-

plicant's major field, before his
admittance can be finalized.
Ninety-three per cent of those
admitted and graduated do go on
into professional music, and the
overwhelming percentage of these
will make careers as teachers of
music on a university campus.
As outlined by Dean Wallace,
future plans call for the construc-
tion of a $3-million concert hall
on the grounds of the music
school. This hall will have a 1,100
seat auditorium with three bal-
conies, patterned after the com-
pact, intimate style of an Italian
opera house. The money for the
concert hall will come out of the
$55-million private gift campaign
now in progress.

MSU Council AcceptsU. S.
Free Editorial Policy Witi

The Academic Council of Mich-
igan State University has accept-
ed, in principle, the statement
made by 'the Faculty Committee
on Student Affairs concerning the
editorial freedom of the' State
News, MSU's student newspaper.
The statement reads, "it is de-
sirable to adopt an organizational,
structure which will make it clear
that the State News is a student
newspaper with its tone and ,con-
tent determined by the student:
editorial staff."
The report further states that
"the faculty, administration, and
students who are not staff mem-
bers can provide advice and criti-
cism but should not exercise any
powers of veto or censorship over
the news or editorial comment."

ogy of the Rebel

The chapter examined the rebel
psychology as a product of despair
and injustice. Mr. Oglesgy stated
that the rebel is not born a rebel
but became one as a result of his
environment. He has accepted
death as an only alternative to his
slavery. In Watts and in Viet
Nam, this motivation is the same.
Injustice, according to Mr. Og-
lesby, is the main source of revo-
lutionary anger. This injustice be-
comes more coherent as it becomes
less random. When a rebel real-
izes that it is the entire system
Z4PA Use
1 TT~ ffi

and not a small part of it which is
corrupt, he accepts total change as
the only alternative. He believes
that this change can be brought
about only by himself.
The rebel has no intellectual
basis for his rebellion. He does
not want to "construct a utopia,
but to destroy an inferno." Any-
thing could be better than the
existing conditions, he feels. For
this reason he will not accept
compromise or reform. The rebel
that only a violent overthrow of
the existing social order will ac-
complish his freedom.
Mr. Oglesby feels, too, that the
rebel, in renouncing his slavery.
is accepting another master: the
rebellion itself. He has no more
freedom than he had before. But
he prefers slavery of his own
choosing than that which others
would impose upon him.
In citing incipient revolts in
Guatemala, Angola, and in thirty
other nations, Mr. Oglesby de-
scribed the intolerable conditions
in South Africa, Haiti, and else-
where. He quoted a Brazilian reb-
el: "We are in dead earnest; at
stake is the humanity of man."

ed States proposed to Hanoi that
both sides agree to a phased super-
vised military withdrawal from
South Viet Nam as a prelude to
ending the war.
In a major policy speech yes-
terday to the UN General As-
sembly, U.S. Ambassador Arthur
J. Goldberg also offered to end
the U.S. bombing of North Viet
Nam, provided there are assur-
ances from North Viet Nam of an
appropriate military de-escalation.
He urged that these two ques-
tions be put to Ho Chi Minh's
Communist regime in the north:
"Would it, in the interest of
peace, and in response to a prior
cessation by the United States of
the bombing of North Viet Nam
take corresponding and timely
steps to reduce or bring to an
end its own military activities
against South Viet Nam?"
"Would North Viet Nam be will-
ing to agree to a time schedule
for supervised phased withdrawal
from South Viet Nam of all ex-
ternal forces-those of North Viet
Nam as well as those from the
United States and other countries
aiding South Viet Nam?"
Meanwhile, Secretary of State
Dean Rusk invited Andrei A. Gro-
myko to dinner last night to sound
out the Soviet foreign minister
on Viet Nam and a wide range
of other issues.
One theory among U.S. experts
is that the Kremlin may feel freer
to deal with the West now that
the Soviet Communist rival, Com-
munist China, is losing influence
in the Communist world because
of her internal strife.

to decide whether to negotiate for
a settlement. Hanoi has denounc-

Soviet reaction to Goldberg's
speech was reserved. It won praise
from many delegates, while some
others said it contained nothing
Nikolai T. Fedorenko, the So-
viet delegate to the United ;Na-
tions, said the speech was "a set

but by deeds. We are aware of the
