Milking the students
LAST YEAR, the Tenants Union (TU) sponsored a
benefit held in the Events Bldg. (Crisler Arena). After
the concert TU refused to pay for the rental of the build-
ing. They argued, rightly, that if a building is built with
student funds then those same students shouldn't have
to pay for its use a second time.
Afraid of raising a furor the administration decided
not to press the point.
But now a year later, since the memories of that
benefit have faded and few people are around to kick up a
fuss, the administration has dared to tell TU that they
are denied the use of all administration-controlled facili-
ties.
AND THE facilities are truly administration-controlled.
The administration built Crisler Arena with student
fees, never once asking the students whether or not they
wanted the building, A building that for the next thirty
years each University student will shell out $7 per school
year to pay off its building bonds. An assessment that is
carefully hidden in a tuition increase.
But that is not the only administration-controlled
building that the students are paying for. The new Ad-
ministration Bldg., the fortress that menacingly looks
down upon Regents Plaza, is also funded from student
tuition. As with Crisler Arena, student opilion on the
project was not considered or even asked for.
And just recently, a new structure has been proposed.
And in normal fashion, the administration has gone ahead
with plans to construct it, an intramural building.
BUT THE students' burden is not limited to the cost of
construction of these buildings, it extends into the
high upkeep costs, which are passed to students either
directly through rental fees or indirectly through ticket
cost.
And this is the specific point that the TU is contend-
ing. It refuses to believe that after each student pays his
assessment for the building, he should not be expected to
also pay sky-high rental fees to use that building. .
For too long, students have been paying the building
costs of buildings that they did not want, and then shell-
ing out the cash to run the buildings.
The TU challenge to the system of making the stu-
dents pay twice for the building is appropriate and well
founded.

By DONALD KUBIT
The Grasshopper, now showing
at the Fifth Forum, is a movie
I've been wanting to see for a long
time. After discovering that it
starred Jacqueline Bisset, and was
"the story of a beautiful -girl's
lifetime_ between the ages of 19"
and 22" I took a special interest
in this film. Would the girl be one
of those creampuff delights vxho
conquers the world with her youth-
ful innocence and her mother's
blessings? Would she be a turned-
on type moving through the con-
temporary scene much to the
chagrin of her established elders?
Or would she be a crusading mem-
ber of Women's Liberation? For-
tunately, this "modern girl" is
none of the above. She is an ideal-
istic young woman looking for
some fun and direction in her life.
She relies on impulse and experi-
ence for an answer, and what we
learn in the end is that this pro-
cess ofacquiring knowledge can
be quite destructive when one's
direction is so aimless.
Christine's (Jacqueline Bisset)
adventure begins when she rejects
the comfortable home life of Can-
ada for the romantic awe of Los
Angeles where her boyfriend is
deeply emeshed in a sucessful busi-
ness career. The dullness of a
struggling career is not our hero-
ine's cup of tea so she splits for
the glamour of Las Vegas. In per-
petual motion she becomes a show
girl, a wife (and just as quickly
a widow), a well-kept mistress,
and finally a whore.'Never con-
tent, but always willing to give
anything a chance, she goes
through men faster than costume
changes and only after she is on
the receiving end of the shaft do
we see how the short years have
taken their toll and at 22 she is
a broken stallion, her spirit drain-
ed by her ordeals.
The message is harsh and fright-
fully true-the world isn't against
you, it merely forces you to adapt.
And if you're nothing extraordin-
ary, say just an average person,
you had better learn to adapt
quickly or it will pass you by be-
fore you know it.
The sneaky thing about The
Grasshopper is that it is almost a
plagaristic montage of other films.
It starts like Midnight Cowboy,
with a little of Me, Natalie in the
middle, and an ending a lot like
Zabriskie Point (right down to the
now-famous skywriting escapade).
However, if you don't watch too
closely the pieces all seem to fit.
And although it certainly doesn't
offer anything new, .the combina-
tion of past attempts are handled
with enough class that the movie
can stand on it's own.

The casting is honest if nothing
else. It appears that director Jerry
Paris believes in stars playing
themselves and has Jim Brown
portraying an ex-football hero.
Corbett Monica a second-rate
comedian, and Joseph Cotten as a
wealthy old man whose bedroom
activities depend upon his weak
heart condition. And then there
is Jacqueline Bisset.
Miss Bisset is one of those ac-
tresses who not only looks great,
but can play a meaningful role be-
sides. She becomes Christine'and
plays the role with the sensitivity
of an autobiography. Not many
pretty faces can win one's sym-

pathy, but Miss Bisset is an ac-
tress who can make you cry.
However, don't think that just
because the story is so depressing,
its doesn't have its lighter mo-
ments. The humor is scarce, but
effective.
The Grasshopper is touching, if
that sounds trite I apologize, but
fellow romantics will know what
I mean when they see it. Hope-
fully, the Fifth Forum will delay
its next feature, which looks like
nothing more than a stag film, in
order to give people more time to
catch The Grasshopper before it
leaves town. Stag films may be
the mode nowadays, but a few
tears never hurt anyone.

Confrontation
To the Editor:
I WOULD CARRY further Jona-
than Miller's conclusions on con-
frontation. Repression of women
and of homosexuals, the- promo-
tion of ROTC and war research,
the denial of civil liberties and
equal opportunity are part of a
larger whole. While political pow-
er is tied to economic interest
in a male-dominated society there
will be repression of all minority
groups, be they students, blacks,
seekers of peace, women, or homo-
sexuals. As a microcosm of a
larger society the University will
be the scene of confrontation so
long as its present power structure
exists and minority groups have
the courage to challenge the op-
pressive power of the University
administration.
-James Toy, Grad.

Czechoslovakia
To the Editor:
I WOULD LIKE to respond to
the lachrymose article "Two Years
With A Dubeek-or The Making
of an Unperson" by Nadine Coho-
das (Daily, July 10).
Alexander Dubcek in January
of 1968 engineered a political
counterrevolution that in August
of 1968 was in the process of dis-
mantling the socialist-economy,
abolishing egalitarianism (Czech-
oslovakia was the most egalitarian
nation in Eastern Europe), and
preparing to provide the United
States with an enormously signi-
ficant military position vis-a-vis
the Soviet Union (Dubcek was

planning to leave the Warsaw
Pact).
AS FAR AS political freedom is
concerned, Dubcek absolutely for-
bade revolutionaries (e Trotsky-
ists and Maoists) to organize
themselves politically.
As for Dubcek's personal fate,
I believe he should be allowed to
return to his old trade as a ma-
chinist.

Rationality?
To the Editor:
I WITNESSED Prof. Stephen
Tonsor's irrational response to a
student questioner at the recent
panel on student unrest. I subse-
quently learned that Prof. Tonsor
has, in front of a class, smashed
a water pitcher and several glasses
in a fit of rage. Some time ago he
ripped from a wall, tore up, and
ground under foot a picture of
President Johnson that was being
used as a dart board. As Debra
Thal stated in Thursday's Daily,
how can this man "handle any
role in a University designed for
rational inquiry"? Perhaps he best
serves as an example of a person
whose behavior should not be im-
itated, but whose actions could
be studied under the auspices of a
foundation designed to investigate
violent and irrational behavior, a
foundation similar to the one that
Tonsor proposes for the study of
homosexuality.
