I'D LIKE TO be free to cry.
And cry.
Not just shed a tear or two when a
close relative dies, or when a girlfriend
bids an abrupt farewell, but I ask that I,
a male, be free to shed rivers of tears
when I seea sad movie or when I'm just
feeling melancholy.
Male Liberationaiswhat I'm talking
about. What I'm after, is to liberate
myself from the demands society
places on my masculinity. I'm op-'
pressed because I'm told to conform to
a standard of male image that prevents
me from being nurturing, tender,
vulnerable, and sensitive - andforces
me to be a responsible, competitive,
dominating, aggressive breadwinner.
people think of another born-again-
smoker riding on yet another trend, or
Pete Rose, masquerading as John
Wayne's bigger, meaner Uncle Macho,
ready to lasso cute GIRLS to fix dinner
and whatever it is that chicks do.
And, of course, there are those that
say male liberationists are out solely to
improve their chances for a job. The
reason the University has no men's
studies department, the same people
say, is because every course offered -

with the exception of Women's studies
classes - is centered on men's studies.
Men's liberation is an outgrowth from
the women's movement. The women's

"But do you really think they'd come?" I asked.
"Why not?" Rene countered. "Roger Rapoport
(Daily editor in 1967) told me he had the Flemings
over to dinner, and I'm sure we're better chefs than
he. He used to cook hamburgers in lard. Besides, if

But the Flemings needed no persuasion. They

Tuesday - just 11 hours from now.
Eleven hours is not much time to shop for and
prepare a six-course dinner, but we had two
kitchens and four hands with which to work, so we
had hopes of success.
Our first concern was bread. Since there is no
place in Ann Arbor to buy good French bread, we
had to make our own. Julia Child's recipe in
Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume II
produces a bread that makes you think you are in
Paris. But since it requires three separate risings in
a cool place, and nearly 10 hours total preparation
time, we had to start early.
Rene began by mixing the only ingredients
necessary - and the only ones permitted by the
French government - flour, water, salt, and yeast.
The consistency of the dough at this point is
extremely soft and needs much muscle to make it
ready for the first rising.
That first rising takes three to five hours, so we
used the time fortshopping. For our main course we
decided on roast saddle of lamb. We didn't want
beef, which is basically an uninteresting meat, and
we'd made fowl and pork for our last two major
meals. We decided on lamb because the taste of the
saddle requires little adornment and thus little
preparation. But saddle - which consists of the loin
and tenderloin - is rarely eaten, in this country, so
we had to special order it from a Detroit butcher.

Guess the words defined at the
left and write them in over
their numbered dashes. Then,
transfer each letter to the cor-
responding numbered square
in the grid above. The letters
printed in the upper-right-hand
corners of the squares indi-
cate from what clue-word a
particular square's letter
comes from. The grid,, when
filled in, should read as a
quotation from a published
work. The darkened squares
are the spaces between words.
Some words may carry over
to the next line. Meanwhile,
the first letter of each guessed
word at the left, reading down,
forms an acrostic, 'giving' the
author's name and the title of
the work fromwhich the quote
is extracted. As words and
phrases begin to form in the
grid, you can work back and
forth from clues to grid until
the puzzle is complete.

The remainder of our menu was easier to shop
for. We planned to start with scallops - something'
light and fresh for an appetizer - and move on to
cream of cauliflower soup. Then we would serve the
'lamb, with Pommes Anna and steamed broccoli
spears. Korean salad would come next followed by
bread and cheese, and Torta Lesnika - a chocolate
filbert torte - coffee and Martell Cordon Bleu
cognac would be the finishing touch.
After purchasing the ingredients, we were still
short our most important item - wine. We planned
a different wine for each course, save the salad
(wine clashes with the vinegar in the dressing), and
each bottle had to be selected to compliment the
dish it would accompany.
