By ROSE SUE BERSTEIN
Joan Baez dreamed she saw
Joe Hill last night and so did
her audience at Crisler Arena,
as she sang for two hours and
made concert-going history in
Ann Arbor by performing for a
fee which would enable nearly
anyone to see her.
Joan punctuated her singing
with acerbic remarks thrust at
the Nixon administration and
establishment politics in gener-
al.Some of last night's most
moving moments resulted from
original political works such as
a tale of prison life and Bangla-
desh, which unfortunately were
not as well done as the pieces
borrowed from other musicians.
*Nevrtheless, the point was
there:
When the sun sinks in the
west
PI a million Peonle of the
Banrlodesh
In between Joan's orioinal at-
temuts. some of which had nev-
er before ben heard in con-
cert. the audience joined in for
such familiar folk sons as
You an't coin' nowhere and
Kumbaya. Sitting on the floor,
not far from Joan's guitar and
directly under the center of
CrIslkr's ecome. I couldn't help
wishing that, the concert were
outdoors. dsnite the rain. And.
when the lights all gathered
force beaming at the ceilinq. I
imagined there was no, roof over
our heads. and there we were,
sitting outdoors. n comminity
of thousands united in politics
and 'music as well.
It is persons like Joan Baez,
in fact, who make it difficult to
senarat one's art from one's
politics.
With messages such as "be
not too hard. .for life is short
and nothing is given to man"
juxtaposed with "all the weary
mothers of the earth will finally
rest" (after the revolution) it
becomes riear that a move-
ment's message can be relaxed
through son as it was so joy-
ously last night, though over
the jov hung a cloud of dos-
pair that tanscends anY joyy
a movement loyalist can attain.
Tributes to Bob Dylan and
Joan's son Gabriel gave the
concert depth and warmth-the
one by honoring a patron saint
of sorts, the other by exalting

"I wouldn't say McCABE is more
enjoyable than M*AS*H; it is
simply richer and better, a clas-

childhood fantasy. To Dylan,
Joan sang:
You stood upon the mountain
while it was sinking,
You set aside your cursed
crown
You must understand these
things we give you
Like notes about the war and
flowers at your door
We're only saying that time is
short and there is work to
do
We're still marching on the
streets
with little victories and big
defeats.
In; contrast to this was Ga-
briel and Me, written as a lulla-
by for Gabriel Harris, and sung
for a little girl who appeared to
be falling asleep last night.
He comes in the morning
when the air is still
He races the sun; he always
will
We raise up the window, look
out to the trees
We'd love to go with him,
Gabriel and me.
Joan spoke on several current
campus issues between songs,
and even expressed disappoint-
ment at being unable to partici-

pate in next week's anti-war
protest at the homecoming foot-
ball game.
She looked up at the flag
whose stars stare at all Crisler
audiences. "I hate it. I absolute-
ly despise it," she said. "It has
absolutely nothing to do with
human beings; it's become a
death symbol," she charged.
Joan urged persons going to
hear David Harris speak on Re-
sistance today to "crash the
gates," since Harris disap-
proves, of having admission
charged when he speaks.
The audience was a very
youthful one, though it was
hardly homogeneous, and Joan
urged those present to speak
kindly to the elderly. "Old
trees," she sang, "grow older,
but old people just grow lone-
some, waiting for someone to say
hello."
By the time Joan had sung
an impressive sampling of pene-
tratingly clear but strong notes
bearing painfully clear and
equally strong messages, the di-
versified audience asserted its
unity and 'joined in Let it Be.
And it certainly was.
