Phil Ochs...
singing for McGovern

By GLORIA JANE SMITH
Arts Editor
"Here's to the state of Richard
Nixon . . . find another country
to be part of . ."
You may by now have already
heard the voice of Phil Ochs
singing these words on local
fm stations - the four minute
tape was recorded, reproduced
and distributed Wednesday night
when Ochs appeared on the
Power Center stage in a bene-
fit concert for George McGov-
ern.
Winding up a long series of
McGovern concerts in various
states including Texas, Wiscon-
sin and Maryland, Ochs seemed
somewhat detached from his au-
dience 'as he drifted through a
medley of familiar songs about
the war and government and so-
ciety.

Perhaps it was the strain of
constant travel or the growing
concern for a Democratic candi-
date who just might not make it
in the election . . . whatever'
Ochs didn't seem to be giving
his audience more than the basic
essentials of a performance. His
voice rang out in a rather rou-
tine manner devoid of overflow-
ing feeling.
His audience, however, didn't
seem to mind. Power Center
filled with high-energy applause,
recognizing more than merely
a talented musician, but also a
man who stood for their own
political convictions.
A political lyricist from way
back, Ochs sang lyrics that said
exactly what his audience want-
ed to hear. Lyrics such as:
I ain't a marchin' anymore ...
It's always the old who lead
us to the wars
It's always the young who

fall . . .
or;
I am just a student, sir
Only trying to learn
But it's hard to read through
the pages
Of the books I'd like to
burn . .
"I come from a different gen-
eration - the 60's," he said.
People then had a conscience,
worried when people got killed;
not today - we've reverted back
to the 50's."
Backstage, Ochs lightened his
cynicism just a little by saying
that there was, of course, "a
chance . . . I'm voting this year
for the first time in my life."
Openingrthe show was Diesel
Smoke and Dangerous Curves, a
country group who frequently
perform in local bars. Unlike
many second-billed acts, Diesel
Smoke provided an enjoyable set
for an audience who awaited

Phil Ochs' appearance.
Many of them former members
of Buddies in the Saddle, they
rambled through a variety of
well-known country songs in-
cluding Buck Owen's Truck Driv-
in' Man," Kris Kristofferson's
"Help Me_ Make It Through the
Night," and Chuck Berry's "Na-
dine."
Following his performance,
Ochs gathered his crew and
rushed to the Music School where
trained technicians began work
on reproducing t h e "Nixon
State" tape.
In keeping with his attitude
on stage, Ochs paced nervously
from room to room working out
the details of the tape's distribu-
tion. There was no time to dis-
cuss himself - minutes were
passing quickly, and he had to
get to Detroit soon. "What can I
tell you," he said "I've told you
all I can."
Realizing then that some ele-
ment of comic relief was needed
in the tense recording room, he
turned and spouted suggestions
like "Tell them my mother's
name is Gertrude; tell them I
have an emerald in each gold
filling. . ."
What I really think he wanted
me to "tell them," however, was
that they should think about his
song "Nixon State" before they
voted next week.
I was reminded of the words he
had sung in his encore:
Take some fire from an old
friend
and wake up to a new begin-
ning
And you won't find me singin'
on this song
when I'm gone.
So I guess I'll have to do it
while I'm here.

It is probably true that it is safer for a rich person to break
almost any law, than for a poor person to do so. Not every-
thing that money can buy is necessarily good. The solution
is not to repeal laws, but to enforce them fairly. Laws restrict-
ing aborion can be, and frequently have been, adequately
enforced.
