Gathering moss at Cobo ,

By BILL LEAVITT
A fantastic number of guards
and police surround Cobo Hall
before the Roling Stones con-
cert, giving it the apeparance of
the set of "The Longest D a y"
during lunch break.
I approach one guard and ask
him if Patton really did slap
that soldier, or if it was just
a George C. Scott ad lib. He
looks puzzled, then says "Move
on," which I interpret as a sign
us. He toys with the grip of his
of secret communication between
night stick, which I intepret

as a sign that I should move on.
I read that the Rolling Stones
have perSonal guards. Guards for
the Stones. That knowledge gives
me an uneasy feeling in the pit
of my stomach, much the came
as realizing that Beaver Cleav-
er knew naughty words.
The crowd is somewhat sur-
prising, appearing more 1ii k e
they have come to see Ike and
Tine Turner or even Vic Da-
mone, rather than the Rolling
Stones. But, the thought occurs
to me that I decided to dress up
for the occasion and put on a
clean work shirt. Still, I think
it must be the wrong concert
untilea group of bloodshot eyes
passes.
One guy is tryig to peddle
"marijuana pills" - he must be
here for the Vic Damone crowd.
On the way to my zeat I pass
a guy in a pair of no-scuffs with
a date in capri pants. For some
reason I have the desire to ask
him if he beat up Glen Ford
in "Blackbsoard Jungle." I let
the urge pass for I see anothler
interesting couple, the usual
blonde guy in the body shirt

who seems to be looking for his
life guard chair, and his date in
hot pants. I consider asking him
where all the fish go at night,
but I decide against it.
After careful deliberation I
realize that someone is in my
seat.
"I think you are in my seat."
"Far out." He extends his arm
and we wrestle for a handshake,
I pushing for the traditional grip
and he fighting for the poisular
"concert clasp." We compromise
with our fingers and thumbs
randomly sprawled. For a while
I wonder why I have just shaken
hands with someone I don't
know, someone, in fact, who is
sitting in my seat.
After making a mental note
that at my next opportunity to
shake hands with someone I
know, I will refuse to shake, I
decide upon another plan of at-
tack with this fellow, mention-
ing death, permanent injury, and
the rather unfriendly looking
guard about ten feet away.
My intentions are very clear
at this time, and after another
attempt at a handshake and
some heart-rending goodbyes, he
leaves.
On stage, some guy is shoving
a microphone around.

The Tutoring School with the
Nationwide Reputation

The time is right, I decide,
to win a few admirers.
"I hear that Mick Taylor has
beautiful hair," I say to my
companion, loud enough to pick
up a few glances of awe. I as-
sume that knowing the name of
at least one Rolling Stones gui-
tarist is enough for even a few
looks of adultation, and I await
the reaction of my new fans.
"Far out," says a girl in front
of me, who doesn't even look old
enough to rate records on "Am-
erican Bandstand."
I look around for a few more
admirers. The guy in the no-
scuffs gives me a wave, and

after looking at his date, I de-
cide that I will bring bubble gum
to my first concert too.
On stage, the same guy is
dragigng a microphone around,
and not being too careful.
That familiar concert aroma of
sweat, marijuana, and deodor-
ant, with the deodorant running
a weak third, reaches my nose.
Perhaps the smell is more pro-
nounced by the fact that the peo-
ple next to me either do not be-
lieve in the redeeming values of
soap and water or are very ser-
iously cultivating some armpit
disease.
I consider briefly the possib-
ilities of convincing the blonde
guy in the body shirt that these
people have not showered before
entering the pool, and after shov-
ing a whistle and a megaphone
in his hand, telling him to throw
them out before the pool man-
ages returns.
Instead I mention to these
people the importance of never
aiding a foreign power and al-
ways rem iing downind.
That same guy' is pulling a
microphone chord, and not car-
ing about the equipment.
I am glad I came to this con-
cert. As usual, the crowd is in-
teresting and the music is good.
Wild horses couldn't drag me
away. Wild Horses?
And it is then that I realr e
that the guy on stage is Mick
Jagger.

Jean-Luc Godard's
Le Gai Savoir

"In this time of increasingly personal cinema, the
films of Jean-Luc Godard make those of most of
his contemporaries look about as original and in-
dividual as monogrammed Volkswagens. The -:
movie is full of puns and typically Godardian; it
is one of his most beautiful, most vividly lucid
movies."
