TOO AMBITIOUS

NigeA
By STEPHEN SELBST
The Professional Theatre Pro-
gram's production of The River
Niger has some very fine acting
going for it, a muddled and
overly ambitious script, uncer-
tain direction, andthe predict-
able result of a mixed perform-
ance.
Some of the acting in the play,
written and directed by Joseph
Walker, is excellent, and for
the most part it alone saves
what might otherwise be an
extremely tedious evening.
THE BASIC problem is that
the play itself just tries to do
too much. It's too long ai slight-
ly over three hours; a good jo:
with a scalpel could improve it
immeasurably. And it could be
a little more tightly construct-
ed: an absurd side plot event-
ually provides the climax and
instead of being powerful, the
effect is almost a non sequitur.
By far the best acting in this
unbelievably event-filled cbron-
icle of one week in the 'ife of
a black Harlem family comes
from the patriarch of the clan,
Johnny Williams, played by Me]
Minkler.
Given the best part in the
play, Winkler does it justice,
delivering a warm, multi-di-
mensional performance t h a t
makes you wish you could con-
tinue your acquaintance with
this life-loving, self-styled poet
after the final curtain falls on
him.
JOHNNY'S son Jeff is a!oso
very good, and he too is aided
by having a good role :n a I!ay
filled with too many stereo-
types. Jeff, played by Obaka
Adedunyo is especially effective
at showing different aspects of
his character, tenderness with
his fiance and toughaeas xth
the gang leader.
Among the w o m e n Lona
Johnson, as Jeff's intended,
Ann, is remarkably suotle, a
refreshing quality where too

falls short

many roles are overplayed.
Johnny's wife Mattie, acted by
Olivia Williams, does a mixed
job; sometimes maintaining the
proper balance between control
and stiffness and in other scenes
losing the battle.
Unfortunately there is a ple-
thora of poor performances, but
it's tough to tell who's at fault,
because the lines the remaining
characters have are so h ick-
neyed they're almost camp.

IT APPEARS the author pcur-
ed all his energy into "eselop-
ing the major parts and fa med
to consider the optential of the
supporting roles.
Good directing might have
been able to transcend this par-
ticular problem by downplaying
the cliches and encouraging the
actors to work out more human
roles, but since the author di-
rected The River Niger there
was no help from that avenue.

Job situation grim
for law graduates

(Continued from Page 1)
can be placed with students
themselves. "There's a tacit as-
sumption that security accrues
to the professional role and
status of lawyers," says Dr.
Louis Rice, coordinator of
pre-professional law counseling
at the University.
"STUDENTS think that once
the credentials are achieved
that that, in and of itself will
suffice. They put off the prag-
matic question, all the focus
is on admission to law school,"
he says.
Rice says most of the students
he counsels concentrate on how
to get into law school and pay
little or no attention to "the
nature of the field itself." Pro-
spective lawyers ask about ad-
mission requirements but not
what might happen to them
once they have their law de-
gree.
As for the shortage of legal
jobs, he says the pre-law coun-
selors "try to introduce the is-
sue but it's an issue that many

erately" through the mid-1980's.
Normal retirements plus a
growing population, increased
business activity, and the rise
in consumer and environmental
legal actoin will employ some
of the law school graduates.
THE BUREAU predicts about
19,000 annual job openings but
they must keep pace with the
29-30,000 yearly graduates.
To compound the problem,
economic problems have cut
the demand for public interest
law firms and federally sup-
ported neighborhood legal serv-
ices. No-fault divorce and car
insurance may also affect law-!
yer demand.
The University's Law School
is highly-rated nationally, so its
graduates have a good chance
of finding a job. Nancy Krieg-
er, director of the law school
placement office, says, "The
market for Michigan people is
still really good. It's much
tougher for small schools -!
they're feeling the crunch."

Paden also contended that
graduate employe and faculty
support has been underrated.
"THE GEO stewards passed
a resolution that they wouldn't
turn themselves in as striking,
so, just because the figures
don't show it, it doesn't mean
they're not striking," Paden
explained. "Also, just because
the faculty are holding classes,
it doesn't necessarily mean
they're not supporting GEO
either. A lot of them are hold-
ing very informal classes which
the students aren't responsible
for."
Ann Arbor police were on

Davids maintains there have
been no physical injuries, but
that a confrontation occurs
