edes
(Continued from Page 5)
Though the Chicago native admits Congress isn't
always receptive to the policy positions Edes
promotes, he rejects charges that the president has
turned against the labor interests that helped put
him in the White House.
"The so-called disagreements between the
president and (AFL-CIO president) George Meany
and the labor movement have been somewhat
exaggerated," he says, adding that perhaps people
expect too much of the president.
"There is a general frustration in Washington,''
he observes.:"Problems are a lot more difficult to
solve than people feel they are. You have a new
president for the first time in eight years who is of
the same party as the Congree, (but) who is a very
different kind of man than Lyndon Johnson."
Edes is well equipped to handle both the policy-
making and policy-pushing ends of his job because
he has divided his years in Washington between
working for the Labor Department and on labor
issues in the Senate.
After graduating fromf the University Law School
a decade ago, Edes joined the Labor Department's
Office of the Solicitor, where he served as a staff at-
torney for two years. Next, he joined Sen. Harrison
William's staff as a legislative assistant. In 1971
WilliIm advanced to the chairmanship of the
Senate Labor and Welfare Committee, for which
Edes worked as special counsel until the new ad-
ministration came in and he was selected for his
current post.
Despite disagreements between labor interests
and the administration over specifics and priorities,
Edes says progress is being made. He claims that
most people think "we've done a lot of important
things and that we agree in terms of our general ob-
jectives."

come to Washington to worry about your programs,
you have to go to bout 10 or 20 different places," she
says.
Currently, Berry is the person responsible. The 40-
year-old administrator coordinates the management of
all education programs in; the federal government, a
task so immense she uses a large organizational chart
of black boxes to aid her in explaining the extent of her
authority. Berry's cube sits at the top.
The National Institute of Education, the National
Center for Education Statistics, and the Fund for Im-
provement of Post-Secondary Education are just a few
of the boxed over which Berry wields her "power of
persuasion, coordination, and leadership."
Despite the position she holds, Berry looks more like
she spends her days lecturing college students than
supervising the nation's education programs from her
office in the new Hubert Humphrey building at the foot
of Capitol Hill.
She projects a manner of enthusiasm and in-
volvement and communicates a sense of personal at-
tachment when describing her programs. She speaks
of successful administrative reshuffling like a teacher
enthralled by the prospect of a student on the verge of
learning a new concept instead of a high-level official
who spends hours poring over statistics and charts.
Berry says that since she left the University, her
taste for statistics has been "enhanced." To generate
policies Berry must wade through reams of figures to
discover which techniques or plans are most likely lto
work effectively,
Although Berry has acclimated to government work,
she intends to return to a university to continue her
academic interests. In fact, she took a leave of absence
from the University of Colorado, where she taught
history and law, to take her government post. She says
she wants to avoid becoming a stereotypical
bureacurat, a fate she fears would accompany a long
stay in government.
"I wouldn't want to stay in this job for eight years,"
she says. "It would be crazy."

goldman
(Continued from Page 5)
He predicts that unless steps are taken soon, oil
demand will exceed supply capacity, prices will
skyrocket, and "very serious economic damage" for
the world will result.
Oil companies, whose assets are in traditional
energy areas, could delve more into researching new
energy sources, Goldman says. But he charges that the
government has not taken enough initiative in prod-
ding corporations to begin these projects.
"It really has to be a role. . . of government to get
those things (research projects) going now so that we
. . . unless steps are taken soon,
oil demand will exceed supply
capacity, prices will skyrocket, and
''very serious economic damage'
for the world will result.'
have them on the shelf, ready to go when they become
economical," he says. "It has to be a combined effort
between private enterprise and government."
The 33-year-old administrator seems to operate in
the center of a controlled hurricane. One moment he is
enthusiastically rattling off statistics on horizontal
divestiture and coal gassification; the next he is racing
out of his office on an errand, arriving back just in time
to jump for the phone. In a rare free moment, Goldman
might conduct business for the chain of kite stores he
opened in Boston, Georgetown, and Ocean City, New
Jersey, in a joint venture with his brother-in-law.
Veering the conversation back to his work, Goldman
claims the key to averting a world energy crisis is to
"convince people that they have to make sacrifices"
when there is an oil surplus.
"That's the guts of it," he says, then turns to his next
challenge: devising energy strategy that stretches
beyond 1985, when the proposed energy guidelines ex-
pire.

defunct New World Film Co-op, but has
continued to branch out with a
staggering virtuosity. Although it
sometimes seems to carry esoterica a
bit too far (are Attack of the Crab Mon-
sters or Invasion of the Bee Girls really
worth an admission charge?), the co-
op's "something for everyone" philoso-
phy seems to hit more often than it
misses. Not least among its attractions
is an unprecedented lineup of free

delights.
The Ann .Arbor Film Co-op's only
deficiencies seem of a technical nature.
The problems include a recent and sur-
prising inconsistency in focusing its
films,,plus a current tendency to blast
its soundtrack at a sonic level evidently

geared to the half-deadened ears of
rock concert veterans, a contingent of
which some of us are not a part.
Despite the gargantuan qualities of
the film societies' lineup, a gluttonous
film critic still finds himself wishing for
more. One would hope someday one of
the groups will do a retrospective on
Czech cinema of the 1960's - surely one
of the most spectacular, though
tragically brief, bloomings in the
history of cinema. One can also lament
the virtual extinction of silent film
showings.
Yet at this moment of economic and
cultural pinch it seems wise to support
our film societies with a fervent loyalty.
Their facilities are tolerable, the price
(a buck-fifty) is still relatively cheap,
and most importantly, until the com-
mercial chains abandon their current
chicken-heartedness, the co-ops are
really the only outlet we've got.

helpful in reading either version of The
Magus.
According to the forward to the
revised edition, Fowles received many
inquiries about the meaning of the en-
ding. To these he answers that people
are confused because they ". . . have
not given due weight to the two lines
from the Pervigilium Veneris that close
the book." Resting the outcome of a
story on a two-line Latin quotation
seems off-balance, especially in a story
the author has labeled "adolescent".
The problem is not really that Fowles
aimed the story at any one highly
literate group of readers, it is that he
wrote - and worse, revised - a story
with no focus. The subtleties would
probably be lost on the average
adolescent reader (as they were on
me), but an older, more broadly
educated reader would probably have
little patience with the egotistical
characters and self-indulgently com-
plex plot that seemed so fascinating to
me.

Fowles' major revisions had little ef-
feet on the book. It remains the same
story, only updated with current clothes
and freer sexual attitudes.
Fowles got the chance a writer
dreams about; the chance to make
reparations for the mistakes made
earlier in his career. He summed up the
paradox of this opportunity well in his
forward to the revised edition
"Magus":
The est of the world can censor and
bury their private past. We cannot,
and so have to remain partly green till
the day we die ... callow-green in the
hope of becoming fertile-green. It is a
constant complaint in that most

posedly "Mature" and middle-aged ar-
tist. One may reject the tyranny, as
Hardy himself did; but the cost was
also (though quite unconsciously) an
out-of-hand celebration of acceptance
of the yoke.

just don't want to get into that. I mean,
that's ridiculous."
Bauer says her experiences at the
University trained her well for her job
as the nation's premiere news watcher.
"I started out doing this at the
(Michigan) Daily when I was day
editor," she recalls. "It's very much
the same thing except when you're day
editing you have only AP and UPI to
worry about and here we've got a whole
lot more than that."
Among Bauer's beats at the Daily
were local and college government and
sex discrimination. She served as a
managing editor before moving on to
t the Ann Arbor News where she worked
on the wire desk for two years and as a
reprt=er one year, before, going to
Washtngton.

Having sifted through miles of
newsprint, Bauer has discovered what
she calls distrubing perspectives on the
nation's media.
"Most of the newspapers that we get
seem to be speaking in the same
voice-the middle-class white
American view of the world, which is
very limited," she says. "Woman lives
to 100" is a classic, or "couple married
50 years" ... they just go on and on.
"(Newspapers) don't touch the poor,
the underprivileged, minority groups
outside the mainstream. And stories
about people under 25 tend to be written
as cute features."
Now Bauer is only an observer-a
news junkie who pushes her habit on the
president. Maybe when she gets off the
reading habit and gets back to writing,
she can initiate her hope-for changes in
'he American press..
