For the internationat set-

By GLORIA SMITH
In two candle-lit rooms, the
walls are plastered with posters.
Fishnetrflows from the ceiling
above round tables and chairs.
International music subtley
plays in the background. The
stage is set for a unique exper-
ience: Rive Gauche.
Located at Hill and East Uni-
versity, the, coffeehouse is spon-
sored by the International Stu-
dents Association (ISA). Its
doors 'are open to all who seek
a warm, casual, and friendly
atmosphere. "Our main objec-
tive," explained Jean Farah,
president of ISA, "is to bring
people together." Although Rive
Gauche is sponsored by ISA, it
is not limited to foreign stu-
dents. Farah explained, "Inter-
national means American too!
The French name translates
as "Left Bank," referring to the
left bank of the Seine River in
Paris where students are fre-
quently found mingling in out-
door cafes. Rive Gauche, open
every evening, with the excep-
tion of Sunday, is similarly a
place where students can "meet
to become actively involved in
conversation," explained In-
Kuin Kim, acting manager.,
In late October, Rive Gauche
began scheduling international
nights presented by various na-
tionality clubs. Last week was
hosted by the Arab club. Mem-

bers sold ethnic food, pastries,
and beverages, while Arab mu-
sic filtered through the house.
Live entertainment and slides
were also planned by the Arab
club.
Hosts in the near future will
be the East Indian club, the Chi-
nese club (which plans to pre-
sent an art exhibit) and the La-
tin American club.
Rive Gauche is located at the
Madeline Pound House, which
was originally the residence of
Professor Henry Frieze (after
whom the Frieze building has
been named). The University
purchased the house from Frie-
ze, planning to demolish it and
construct a parking lot. Dr.
Pound, then a director for the
University, offered to help pay
for the upkeep of the house in
exchange for the use of an
apartment on the first floor.
This he planned to use while he
and his wife, Madeline, lived in
Ann Arbor.
The house was then occupied
by the Pound apartment, busi-
ness offices, a dining room for
international teas, guest rooms
for foreign visitors, and an
apartment for the house super-
visor..
After Mrs. Pound's death last
year, two rooms on the first
floor became Rive Gauche,
sponsored by the French club.
This year, the coffeehouse is be-
ing operated by ISA.
"Although the coffeehouse is

letters
On theatre popularity

a bigger success than last year,"
Kim explained, "we are having
trouble finding space for every-
thing."
The reason for this is that
four rooms are presently being
occupied by a woman with two
children who was the supervisor.
Dr. Robert Klinger, director
of the International Center, un-
derstands the "overcrowded sit-
uation" but says that he "will
not be responsible for sending a
woman with two children out
into the cold."
"Foreign students are not a
popular issue on campus," Klin-
ger explained and the "Univer-
sity has never taken their res-
ponsibility toward them."
If and when Taylor moves
out, the Madeline Pound House
can become a more central part
of ISA. Having more offices
within the house itself will "pro-
vide a greater amount of com-
munication between the offi-
cers of the different nationality
clubs," Kim explained. "The
planning of activities for Rive
Gauche can then become a more
united effort."
In spite of this problem, Rive
Gauche has been successful in
"doing its small part to attain
cooperation all over the globe,"
Kim commented.
Rive Gauche is an excellent
spot for taking that "fifteen
minute break" most students
find necessary during an even-
ing of study.
Rive Gauche is also an ex-
cellent place to find an inex-
pensive Sunday dinner-often
an international potluck.
Rive Gauche is just a com-
fortable place to go. Coffee and
tea are only a dime and the
people are extremely friendly.
Occasionally there is live enter-I
tainment. Sometimes local peo-
ple just bring guitars and play.
But basically, "Rive Gauche,"
Kim concluded, "provides a uni-
que opportunity for American
and foreign students to learn
about each other."

COMING NEXT WEEK:

To the Daily
University Players and the
Speech Department apologize to
the public for having to close
the doors early in recent pro-
ductions of the Student Labora-
tory Theatre in the Arena Thea-
tre.
We announce the plays for
4:10, and have traditionally
locked the doors at 4:11 in order
to avoid interrupting the per-
formances. But recently we have
had to close the doors ind be-
gin the performances early be-
cause all seats and standing
room have been taken well be-
fore 4:10. Both because of fire
laws and because of physical
limitations, our capacity is lim-
ited. We see no solution to the
problem at present, and so must
encourage spectators to come
early when it is important to
them that they see the .)roduc-
tion.

Modern dislikes
To the Daily:
If Mr. Pehrson is becoming
tired of writing bad reviews of
contemporary music concerts,
than I am becoming equally tir-
ed of reading them. Over the
past two months, not to men-
tion last year, we have become
well acquainted with the entire
range of Pehrson's dislikes in
the realm of modern music, and
with one or two exceptions I do
not remember having ever read
of a piece that he did like.
It would interest me, instead

of having to read another bad
review, to learn just what he
does like to hear. While I would
be the first one to agree that
much of what I hear at contem-
porary concerts here does not
please me, there is nowhere near
the amount of trash that 'Pehr-
son describes. And his style in
doing so reminds me of a proto-
type of Shaw's earlier acerbic
criticism, which he ruefully
apologized about when he was
older. Let us know, Mr. Pehr-
son, whether you actually like
any contemporary music.
-Donald Sosin
Icelandic interest
To the Daily:
I read with interest the article
by Deborah Moore concerning
Iceland and the "Icelandic
Fair" sponsored by Jacobson's
department store.
In the interest of truth.
however, I feel I should correct
her opening s t a t e m e n t that
"There are probably very few
people in Ann Arbor, Michigan
who have t h oiu g h t seriously
about Iceland in the past three
months." Judging from the re-
sults of a recent midterm exami-
nation in Scandinavian 441
(Norse Myth and Legend), I can
state that some 46 students at
this University have, in fact,
spent numerous hours during
the past weeks thinking quite
seriously about this "Island the
size of Kentucky."
