By LORRE WEIDLICH
and DIANE LEVICK
Paul Siebel is a poet. Nothing
was more apparent than that
Friday night at the Ark.
Poets were made for the
guillotine.
Philistines know much more.
I was chasing down identities.
God, I must have run a mil-
lion miles.
Siebel's songs are the product
of a sensitivity that comes out
also in the way he tells his
stories, pensively staring up
into space, holding a cigarette.
He tells them not as tales to
entertain an audience but as
anecdotes that offer glimpses

into the elusive reality in which
he lives.
He sings his country-style
songs with a voice that has no
particular attraction of its own,
but matches his vision and his
face, drawn but sensitive. Sie-
bel's more-than-adequate guitar
work this weekend and the real-
ly fine accompaniment *of his
back-up electric and bass guitar-
ists contribute to the total ef-
fect of his performance.
"I know some ladies of ill re-
pute; they're all right. They
go drinking; they pay - pay for
you, too" - he introduced "Lou-
ise," a song about a prostitute,
a song which was, like all his
songs about women, particularly

musical poetics

sensitive and invested with a vi-
sion that was not so much for or
against any movement toward
the equality of the sexes as sim-
ply unaware of its existence, as
in ''Any Day Woman'':
She's a woman, she'll try to
make it last.
If you're a man, you'd better
end it fast.
There'stno reason here, there's
no treason here,
It's just the way of a wo-
man's mind.
She has no blame, she has no
shame,
She just loves you.
Siebel has been around since
just before Dylan; in some ways
Siebel may be the better song-
writer. There is far less of the
abstract imagery and declama-
tory style found in much of Dy-
lan's work. Dylan bot the breaks
and went on to establish an era,
Siebel stayed small time and
wrote fantastic songs like "Span-
ish Johnny."
He turned to Jimmy Rodgers
as his ideal. The few songs he
performed that were not his own
were mainly Jimmy Rodgers',
songs; he was particularly fine
on "Women they make a fool
out of me.
Siebel writes personal, not
generally political songs, al-
though "The Ballad of Honest
Sam" was dedicated to Richard
Nixon ("Sooner or later we all
get ripped off. In two days, the
great rip-off - when America
goes to the, polls") :
I doubt 'there's a bad man in
the movies
Can lie and cheat like Honest
Sam.
In a bar down in St. Louis
He takes the pay from the
working man.
Honest Sam lives in a man-
sion.
He sails his ships out on the
sea.
If the devil pays his ransom,
Well, I guess he'll pay for you
and me.
His songs more often reflect
the learning process of life:
The trouble with love is
you must give all,
It's best to call it alone.
Love's so hard to take when
you have to fake
Everything in return.
You just preserve her when
you serve her
A little tenderness.
By the close of the evening the
brief visions into Siebel's reality
had meshed into enough of a
whole to deeply affect even the
least sensitive in an audience
that had been receptive from
the beginning of the evening.
He'll be back once more to-
night. Try to see him.

Don
Juan
by Phoenix,
Repertory
'delightful!'
By JAN BENEDETTI
During the early seventeenth
century, Tirso de Molina, a Span-
ish monk-dramatist, wrote the
play "El Burlador de Sevilla"
and thereby brought to life that
indefatigable a n d unrepentant
lover, Don Juan.
Decades and several versions
later, Moliere took the Don Juan
story, embroidered it, added,
subtracted characters and pro-
duced his "Don Juan."
Although he tacked on the re-
quired damnation of Don Juan-
possibly to appease a not-too-
tolerant king - Moliere's opinion
of his hero remains ambiguous.
He never quite condemns Don
Juan. Instead of letting other
characters demolish or ridicule
Don Juan's criticisms of religion,
Moliere permits only a few feeble
objections.
But, more importantly, the
frame of the play provides
Moliere with a forum for satire
on the evils of religious hypoc-
risy, doctors and honor.
Moral judgments take second
place to satire, as Moliere ex-
poses his favorite devil-hypoc-
risy.
This theme runs throughout the
play.
Don Juan promises marriage
to one woman, while he really
intends to leave her. He finally
decides to become a total hypo-
crite and preach morality, while
secretly continuing his pursuit of
pleasure.
In spite of flaws in the plot, un-
resolved conflicts, and jerky ac-
tion, Moliere's comedy provides
two hours of delightful theater.
The New Phoenix Repertory
Company in their production of
"Don Juan" hasdcreated a rich
and exciting addition to this

year's Professional Theatre Pro-
gram season.
DirectorStephen Porter has
overcome the play's episodic
structure by bringing out the
flow of the action. He unites the
scenes with a number of tricks
and lets the actors incorporate
scene changes into the action.
Porter sets up a contrast be-
tween the flashy Don Juan and
the practicalaservant Sganarelle.
The two characters are present-
ed as equally important. Don
Juan is the doer, while Sgana-
relle is the commentator, the
critic.
John McMartin as Sganarelle
almost steals the show. While he
disagrees with his master's con-
duct, he knows he must safe-
guard his job and not object too
openly.
Shuffling and scurrying around
in his attempts ,to please both
his master and his conscience,
McMartin is often reduced to a
comic confusion of half-sentences,
shrugs and failing argumients.
He makes the servant an in-
teresting character who is sev-
eral cuts above the typical ob-
sequieous, whining blob.
Paul Hecht strides along as the
self-seeking Don Juan. He buries
any objections in a flood of logic,
intimidating teeth and intense
looks.
He emphasizes the swashbuck-
ing charm of the role. As he in-
sults his stodgy father, the dead,
and God with ease, he makes the
lack of remorse rather appeal-
ing.
John Glover as Pierrot graces
the play with an easy charm. In
one scene, Glover objects that
Charlotte, played by Charlotte
Moore, does not -love him since
she does not constantly hit or
tease him. Glover and Moore in-
vest their one scene with simple,
light humor.
The costumes, by Nancy Potts,
are perfect for the play. The
rich blacks and golds worn by
Don Juantwork b e a ul t i f u 11 y
against the faded clothes of
Sganarelle.
so sorry .
Due to severe space limitations,
(we're selling too many ads during
these pre-election times) a review
of the Batsheva Dance Company's
Friday performance will not be seen
until Tuesday's Arts page.

ABORTIONROR
in Michigfan-W
1. PERMIT FREEDOM OF CHOICE-All women should have the right to choose when and if they will
bear children. The social and economic implications of an unwanted birth are many and no law or
government should be able to disregard these facts by denying the right to abortion. No one of any
religious or ethical belief need ever have an abortion or perform one under the proposed abortion
reform law.
2. PUT AN END TO HYPOCRISY-Women who have money will always be able to go out of state
to get a safe, legal abortion. Michigan women received 7,296 abortions in New York last year.
Those who remain in Michigan must resort to back-alley or self-inflicted abortions, often leading
to hemorrhage, uterine damage, infection, sterility and death. All the Michigan maternal deaths
in the three years, 1969-1971, due to infection from illegal abortions were black.
3. PROVIDE A HUMANE AND COMPASSIONATE SOLUTION-The present law, passed in 1848
served to protect women when abortion was a dangerous operation. Now the risk of death from an
abortion done under proper medical supervision during the first 12 weeks is less than for a full-
term pregnancy. In New York, 80 percent of the abortions performed from July-September 1971
were in the first trimester. We have every reason to believe early abortions will be the rule, not
the exception, in Michigan with passage of the abortion reform law.
WHY LEGALIZE ABORTION TO 20 WEEKS GESTATION?
" Not all pregn'ancies are confirmed before the 12 week point. Examples of this are women with ir-
regular periods, nursing mothers who have no periods, menopausal women who think their fertility
is over, and the poor, the young and the ignorant who may not understand what is happening and
be reluctant to seek advice.
" During the 12-16 week period there is no safe, effective or desirable technique for terminating
pregnancy. The only method available is a relatively unsafe one called hysterotomy, which re-
quires an abdominal incision.
" Fetal abnormalities cannot be detected before the 16-18 week of gestation and several more weeks
are needed for lob processing. The chances of a woman 35 years or older having a Mongoloid child
are much higher than for a younger woman and she must have this extended time period to ensure
she will either deliver a healthy child or be able to arrange for an abortion.
