Let's face it. George Alex-

never publicly supported a wo-

November 5. The first lecturer
will be Marvin Felheim lectur-
inq on 'PERICLES': THE
PROBLEMS OF THE PLAY

English at the University and f
a recipient of the Williams

He has been with the Univer-
sity for over twenty years, and has been a Fulbright lecturer

and The Livinq Aristophanes. In preparation are two books:
Film as Genre and The American Novella.
Next Tuesday Professor Marvin Becker of the History De-
portment will speak on AN HISTORIAN'S VIEW OF
ANOTHER PERICLES.

OUR BIGGEST complaint,
however, is the way in which
certain attorneys in the County
Bar Association have sought to
manipulate the outcome of thej
judge's race. You may remem-
ber that Burgoyne was the peo-
ple's choice in the primary elec-
tion, winning by a significant
margin. In order to promote
their favorite candidate, sceme
members of the Bar Association
decided to hold a rating contest.

One may easily ask if the dif-
ference here is any more than
a matter of degree. Certainly
both Nixon and Ford have as-
serted that we should cast our
votes one way because the al-
ternative is so terrible - not
because their particular way is
in any way good or reasonable.
