GARY MYNAR, '73, who was j
730th in line, claimed that the tic-
ket line was "disgustingly organiz-
ed."
Organized as it was, the wait was
long. One student even claimed
that the wait wasn't worth it. "The
Moody Blues are shitty in concert,
and the acoustics in Chrisler are
worse."
EACH PERSON in line was only,
allotted six tickets, which pre-

so, with the banks closed on Mon-

He founded the order in
1858 and his aim was to create
an order of priests who would
be able to meet the needs of
the North American people as
they arose in each era, each
age. Modern priests who
would be modern men.
Part of the success of this
order, he believed,would lie in
the fact that each man would
be himself, contributing his
own individual talents in his
own way for the total good.;
"The individuality of man,"he
said, "cannot be too great

spirit of God."

SGC elections
An enormous line of two students overwhelms elections overseers at a SGC voting table. Voter turn-
out on the first of the three day elections was later described as "moderate" by SGC Administrative
Vice-President David Fowler. Fowler also said that SGC's new 10-10-10 constitution, in effect as of
this election, is generating "a lot of confusion and frustration" among voters.
POETRY READING:

MILLER'S attraction is obvious,
according to Meyer. "Everyone
knows Arthur Miller through his
plays, of course, and through his
liberal political views.
"We want to give students a
chance to see what the man is
really like," he adds.
While the mini-course usually
merits only one hour credit, the
Miller course shows the workload
can be quite heavy.

AS WITH THE Miller course,
student reaction has been highly
enthusiastic. "Students who were
enrolled in that course are now
meeting on their own to further
their interest," Boros says. "They
couldn't have been more fired-up.
There wasn't an unhappy or dis-
appointed student in the group."

that dealt with his tradition and
the life he has lived.

"I didn't know I was depraved or

One of the reasons Harper cited
for this attitude was theropportun-
ity to see "the greatest athlete I
have ever seen play ball, Jackie
Robinson." The poem dedicated to,
Jackie, "Blackjack", had a haunt-
ing lyric of Jackie's struggle
which leaves, as the poem de-
scribes, "the answered answer still
to come."
After the reading, listeners
flocked to Harper to express their
delight in his poetry. They seemed
to be particularly taken by the
poetry's language, as well as the
insights it provided into the Amer-
ican experience.
Perhaps they were thinking of
images like this one from "Hom-
