Hard To Take Tyme for Time

'TROUBLE with "Tyme"
JLwas that the magazine looked
too much like a Gargoyle and not
enough like Time.
Excluding several good pieces,
"Tyme," was, to borrow a phrase
.from Sherman Silber's book review
of "Superman," "A profound dis-

traditional - "completely honest,
accurate and biased picture of all

TO BEGIN WITH, a letter on
the second page indicated a sub-
scriber of 63 years was cancelling,
which is a pretty neat trick since
Time has only been around for
41 years.
Leslie Fish's avant garde bath-
room humor cartoon was cute.
But what was funny about Her
Johnson having a hysterectomy?
Sure Johnson's proposed new
book, "Sex and the Single Aide,"
was funny, but LBJ plucking daisy
petals, reciting "He loves me he
loves me not," was not.
This essentially seems to be
Gargoyle's problem. While coming
across with some great satirical
lines-"Perry Purplerock march-
ing on Harley Hatchet's home de-
manding nationalization of the
steel industry"-much of the Garg
was garbage.
THE POP ART section was too
close to reality, frankly we've seen
wilder things by Salvador Dali.
The ponderous medicine section
did, however come across with a
good definition of a psychiatrist's
function. "He must create prob-
lems, conflicts and intensities that
had never before been fully realiz-
ed by the patient."
Probably the best piece in the
magazine was "Take it in the Ear,"
aptly summing up the reason for
the pierced ear fad, "it offers
many advantages over previous
crazes, for it not only costs a great
deal more, but is also extremely
painful." "Tyme" advises only the
purest earrings, since "there is a

constant danger

However other reviews are

Goldwater Disillusion
Loses New York State

Trigon: What Must Be Must Be

OBODY LIKES to go to the doctor.
Shots, pills and various medicines are
not likely to be pleasant. But, a trip to
the doctor is necessary to cure a localized
disease before it spreads throughout the
body. The discomfort of the trip is con-
sidered negligible in respect to the possi-
ble harm-if the disease is left unchecked.
Trigon is presenting a similar prob-
lem to the Interfraternity Council Exec-
utive Committee. It has been brought be-
fore the committee on a charge of reli-
gious discrimination in membership. The
comhmittee, the judicial branch of the
IFC, will rule on the case Nov. 24.,
IT IS'TOO BAD they must.
Trigon has religious services, one of
a few fraternities that do. As a result,
Trigon seeks members who could partici-
pate in the services. Commendable
though the idea is, it does lead to dis-
crimination on religious grounds.
Therefore Trigon will be tried. Its serv-
ices will, in effect, likely be ruled ille-
gal, not in themselves, but because of
the recruiting techniques they lead to.
EXECUTIVE committee doesn't
want to try the case. Members of the

committee, along with various frater-
nity presidents, have said that "it is a
rotten shame" the case was brought up.
Other fraternities, sources in IFC have
said, practice much worse discrimination
and get away with it because they have
not been brought to the attention of the
committee. But the Trigon case has and
it must be tried.
The executive committee was formed
several years ago to review fraternity
violations of University and fraternity
rules, and to rule on them. Last year
Student Government Council allowed the
committee to review cases of member-
ship violation, rather than bringing them
to Joint Judiciary Council.
However, should the committee be
thought to falter in its so far excellent
work, jurisdiction would be returned to
Joint Judic. The fraternity system would
be hurt, and Trigon would be no better

Yet we can call Goldwater a
loser only if we forget what he
set out to do. He was distracted,
as so many men before him have
been, by a late onset of the illusion
that he might be President of the
United States. But when he began,
he wanted nothing except to de-

to Carthage as Barry Goldwater
has done to Nelson Rockefeller's
New York Republicans. The Gold-
water people failed like a starving
mob assaulting a bakery; Rocke-
feller's people failed like a bank.

The day before the election, New
York and Kansas were the only
states whose governor, two sena-
tors and a majority of both houses
were all Republicans. Now Ken-
neth Keating has been turned out
of the Senate; the Republicans
have lost both wings of the state
house; and Nelson Rockefeller,

must fight alone in Albany for
his life.
course, keep the Pennsylvanik
Party in a condition minimally fit

ator Goldwater now proposes to
assay their mistakes. There is very
likely a fugitive hart of him which
interrupts this interior scrutiny

Pennsylvania, who knows; I might
have taken Hugh Scott down with

Patience with New 'Art
Form' Waxes Wanes
At the Cinema Guild
HAVE PATIENCE, my dear. This is an experimental film program
and we must be open-minded about the new horizons these
searching young film-makers are opening up for our jaded and often
unresponsive eyes. You must realize how important these people are
to the cinema. Remember, the cinema can be an "art form" if
handled properly, which, of course, is never done at that "dream
factory"-that conveyor belt of celluloid called Hollywood.
Have patience, my dear. These young and thoughtful men are
creating the "new cinema" and discovering a new vocabulary that
will make the medium really exciting. For instance, take this first
film, "Blonde Cobra." The crassness that blares over the transitor
radios placed in the middle of the audience has a deep meaning and a
profound significance to those . . . well, uh, meandering images on
the screen. Why, even the absence of a picture for more than half
the time is highly relevant to the message the film-maker is trying
to get across or the feeling he is trying to engender or the fact he is
trying ...
* * * *
SEE DEAR, patience pays. This film is' colorful. "Twice a Man"
is precisely edited and it would take a fool to think it is devoid of
meaning. It is the advanced technique-the unique and novel vocabu-
lary-that Mr. Markopoulos is advancing that is so important. And
remember, it won an award at the Brussel's Film Festival a few years
ago and who are we to doubt its value. Yes, this film I feel for.
See dear, patience pays again. This film has the poetic thrust
of life, the documentary realism, the ache for people that is charming
and ingratiating. Nothing is beyond Rudy Burckhard's "Under the
Brooklyn Bridge." He will go into a sleazy bar in the slums luring
the local demolition workers' lunch break and he will shoot the
vacant streets and the factory workers leaving for home through
the dingy alley door and the poor children swimming sans bathing
suits under the bridge in the dirty East River as the barges pass
by and people just walking and the beautiful-ugliness of it all and
... oh, it is so moving, my dear.
HAVE PATIENCE, my dear. The "Blue and Orange" film is cute
and amusing, isn't it? And the special effects are wonderful. This
film shows how important the inanimate object is to the cinema
and how it can be infused with life with techniques thoroughly
indigenous to the cinema. Disney does the same thing with his
cartons and his wild-life dramas. Of course, they are often not
about inanimate objects, but unhuman creatures, personified. Isn't
it all so clever, my dear. The moral tone is just right-light and
gingery-and the music is spry and its is so, easy to immerse yourself
in the images of the balls jumping and playing in that junk yard.
Dear, on the way home, let's pick up some bouncing balls just
like those, for the lids and . . . come on dear. What are you waiting
for? The show is over.

Historic Quality Saves
Early Hitchcock .Film
At the Cinema Guild
"iNOTORIOUS*" it is not. Rather, it is a love story set against a
background of intrigue and counter-espionage; typical of the
late 1940's in which it was produced.s
Cary Grant gives a somewhat inexperienced performance as the
suave young intelligence agent who has all the answers-and the beau-
tiful girl. In some ways, his style is stilted and to a contemporary
audience it seems "unnatural." However, this is balanced by Ingrid
Bergman's more "romantic" portrayal of the hard, sophisticated party-
girl who agrees to risk her life for her country and the man 'she loves.
Claude Rains gives an undistinguished performance as the "villain,"
a German underground agent who is the third "angle" in the inevitable
love triangle.
*. * * *
ADDED TO the disadvantages of a trite plot and merely adequate
performances, is the "slickness" of production techniques which may
be a bit too much for contemporary audiences to swallow. For in-
stance, the photography is blurred to achieve a dream-like quality. At
times this becomes almost nauseous.
The action is set in the "romantic far-away" of Brazil. Costumes
and settings are elaborate almost to the point of breaching good
taste. It must be said at this point, however, that such practices were
not limited to this film. They were the rule of style during the late
1940's, and as such cannot be held against "Notorious" in particular.

THIS "HISTORIC" quality on the other hand, makes the film
valuable. It exhibits many of the techniques which Hitchcock has per-
fected and still uses even in his latest film, "Marnie." For instance,
there are prolonged close-ups which capture the subtleties of expression

Why High Rent Is Necessary

insure that they are "getting their mon-

Granted: because of the demand for
independent housing, apartment builders
are able to construct apartments of
less than ideal design and still pass them
off on students at high rental rates, mak-
ing, it would seem, "exorbitant" profits.
BUT THE LARGE profits are needed
to draw out more capital to build
more apartments. There is a dearth of
apartments now, and, unless more capi-
tal becomes available for apartment
construction, the problem will become
more severe in the future.
