Monday morning, true to
form, drags along until 4:00
when The Long, Hot Summer
runs on channel 11. This 1958
film features Paul Newman,
Joanne Woodward and Orson
Welles in a quais-adaptation of
Faulkner's story. At 4:30 Paul
Williams sinks to another low
in his quest to be TV person-
ality of the century as hemugs
for Merv Griffith on channel
13. Sad. CBS News Special ex-
amines the U.S. Commitment
to Israel on channel 2 at 10, fea-
turing the ramblings of politi-
cal hack supreme 'Scoop' Jack-
son. Midnight David Susskind
talks (or raps in his case) with
12 jurors who listened to a nar-
cotics case in New York. And
at 1:00 a.m., Charlie Chan in
Reno, with Sidney Tolar as you-
know-who. That's on channel 2.

This week Ann Arbor will be
graced with the presence of
one of the most reknowned mu-
sicians of our time and one of
the foremost artists of his time,
Vladimir Horowitz. The pianist
will be appearing at Hill Audi-
torium tomorrow afternoon but
don't run down to the box office
for tickets, because they've
been sold out for weeks. Horo-
witz's appearance in Ann Ar-
bor is considered quite an
event as the maestro has made
very few public appearances
since ending a twelve year long
self-imposed exile from the con-
cert stage in 1966.
Another great musician will
make her appearance in the
city, but, alas, only on the
screen. The movie "Janis" will
be appearing at the State Thea-
tre, and viewers will be able to
hear the powerful, soul tearing
voice of Janis Joplin herself.
But the spectacular happen-
ing of the week arrives on
Tuesday; the last day of class-
es. And hopefully, once finals
are finished, what we've all
been looking forward to for
months will be upon us - the
long hot summer.

World Special on channel 7. And mented bits of histility, suspi-
the yo-yo of videoland, Tom cion, fear and violence. ****
