Donald Hall - 'Claims for
' (University of Michigan
Press, 498p., $8.95)
LAIMS FOR POETRY, edited by
Ronald Hall, is more than a bit dif-
ferent from the other books in the
"Poets on Poetry" series from the
Uiversity, of Michigan Press. Instead

of compiling works by any single poet,
Hall has collected in it articles by 43
important modern poets. The result is
confusing, entertaining, unsystematic
and informative. The articles range
from the erudite to the foolish, from the
practical to the incomprehensible.
Articles about poems become poems
themselves. Some articles are so
technical only a well-read scholar
would benefit from them. Others are

clear and concise. Some are short,
some a little longer, but Hall has
managed to select them to cover all
aspects of modern poetry.
The articles touch 'on all today's
major controversies in the field. Much
space is devoted to covering the debate
about free verse vs. metered verse, one
of the biggest debates going on today.
The feeling among most of today's
poets is that the chaotic pace of modern
life can only be captured in a free form
poem. Reacting against the rigid struc-
turalism of their predecessors, modern
poets feel they must use a free verse to
free their own spirit, to open their min-
ds to spontaneous expression.
Many other poets are reacting again-
st this themselves - spontaneity
produces too much bad poetry. The ar-
ticle by X.J. Kennedy, in defense of a
return to meter and controlled rhyth-
ms, offers one of the best statements on
the issue. To begin with, he points out
that a meter structure is not a box to be
filled with verbiage. There can be spon-
taneity, but there must also be control,
and the poet must put enough hard ef-
fort into such a poem to make it work.
But besides that, there is nothing
inherently wrong with either form - if
the poet is enough of an artist he or she
will succeed with whatever form
chosen.
An article by Russell Edson is also
fascinating. It is about prose poetry,
one of the more popular and possibly
least understood of the current poetic
forms. But as one reads it, one realizes
that it is a prose poem itself. Content
and form blend together, and the result
is an effective method of illustrating
some of the logic behind good prose
poetry.
Rhyme, sound, form, grammar,
spontaneity and rigidity all come under
scrutiny by a variety of poets. They also
spend time talking about each other,
agreeing, disagreeing, debating.
The result is a fascinating compen-
dium, but...there is a but. After reading
books about poetry written by Hall
himself, one realizes the rarity of a
truly useful essay about poetry. None of
the poets in this book seem as skilled at
talking about poetry as Hall is. One
must consider many viewpoints before
forming an opinion, though, and 43 of
them are expressed right here in one
compact volume, ripe for the picking.

Cast members in the PTP production of 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof' flank Big Mama in a climactic
moment from the play: is it or isn't it true that Big Daddy has...?
A meow-mix, hot 'Cat'

By David Kopel

H OMOSEXUALITY, alcoholism, men-
dacity, and decay. Tennessee
Williams lived a world of despair. But
despite the ugliness of the world, some
fight and struggle, and survive for a
while. The Michigan Ensemble
Theater's production of Cat on a Hot
Tin Roof proves that the brilliance of
one of America's greatest playwrights
will never fade.
Big Daddy,owner of 28,000 acres of
fine Mississippi delta land, does not
know he is dying of cancer. His two
sons, Brick and Gooper know, and so do
their wives, Maggie and.Mae. Maggie is
the "cat on a hot tin roof," fighting to
win Big Daddy's favor, and to win back
her estranged husband Brick.
Frederikke Meister as Maggie gets
off to an uneven start. And since the fir-
st act is built around Maggie, so does
the play. At first she speaks too
hurriedly, and snuffs out her Southern
drawl. Her loudest moments in the first
act are sometirfies shrill. She plays
against the other characters quite well
though. Her longing for Brick is never
in doubt, nor is her hatred for sister-in-

law Mae. As the play develops, and
Maggie becomes more self-assured,
Meister improves. Her determined per-
formance lights up the final act.
As ex-football hero and current
alcoholic Brick, Erik Fredricksen plays
his role with simplicity and strength.
He hides from a deceitful world behind
a wall of alcohol and coolness. Although
Brick is only rarely dislodged from his
sullen hostility, he never becomes
tiring to watch. The only notable flaw in
Fredricksen's performance is that he
manages to put away well over a pint of
whiskey without showing a single sign
of intoxication until the very end of the
play.
Big Daddy dominates his family and
the stage. Although far too spry for a 65-
year-old, Michael Ryan (also known as
John Randolph) from Another World
provides an energetic .contrast to
Maggie's restraint and to Brick's
weariness.
Despite all the gloom, Tennessee
Williams threw in a great deal of
humor, to break the tension. Few
scenes are funnier than the cat-fights
between Maggie and her sister-in-law
Mae.

The rest of the cast is just as strong.
Big Mama does her best to show Big
Daddy that she loves him, although he
refuses. to understand her affection.
Also excellent are Timothy Grimm as a
nervous Reverand, and Steve Pudenz
as the wimpy corporate lawyer Gooper.
Both of the first two acts center on
long scenes with two characters. While
Director Gregory Lehane handles the
more crowded scenes well, his direction
of the more difficult two-person scenes
is especially fine. Although the scenes
are long and emotionally intense, they
never drag.
The set captures the lack of privacy
in Big Daddy's mansion, and the air of a
quiet Southern evening.
Performances of Cat on a Hot Tin
Roof are at 8 p.m. at the Mendelssohn
Theatre, in the Michigan League. The
show runs through March 20, and Mar-
ch 24-26 with evening performances,
plus a matinee on Sunday the 27th.
Tickets range from $7-12. The tickets
aren't cheap, but they buy an evening
with some fine professional actors, and
some strong local talent as well.,.-

drove the car which passed Liuzzo, also
took the stand yesterday. Thomas, who
was the second highest-ranking klan-
sman in Alabama, said he joined the
klan because "I thought what they was
doing was the right thing to do."
Thomas, now a born-again Christian,
told the court that Rowe shot at Liuzzo's
car.
THOMAS SAID "My opiinion of
(Rowe) wasn't very high," adding that
Rowe's bad reputation was accentuated
when he was part of a group. "If he
could get people behind him, he was go,

capable of violence."
Thomas said on March 25, 1965, he
drove himself, Wilkins, Eaton and
Rowe to Montgomery to watch the
march. However, Thomas said he did
not antagonize the marchers. "I didn't
go down there to bother them at all," he
said, "Rowe was the one that spat on
one of the marchers."
According to Thomas, it was Rowe's
idea to open fire on the white old-
smobile transporting Liuzzo and Moton.
"ROWE TOLD me to catch them,"
Thomas said, adding that in their pur-

as they traveled through the rain and
down the dark road.
"Thomas said a shot was fired out of
the back of the car (where Rowe was
seated)." Thomas said Rowe fired
between two and three slots at the Liuz-
zo car.
After the shooting, Thomas said he
and his partners stopped for gas and
then at a restaurant "to say we was
there," and providcean alibi.
Thomas said he did not hear of the
killing until the next day. "I didn't hear
no news reports until after nine o'clock

Rowe was indicted in 1978 by an
Alamba grand jury Qn murder charges.
A federal judge ruled, however, that
Rowe could not be prosecuted because
he was given immunity by the FBI for
acting as an informant.

Dow denies exerting pressure on EPA

the draft, but he added the final report
was "scientifically correct."
And, he said, Dow has cooperated
with the EPA in providing data on
waste discharges the EPA has sought,
but has refused to hand over data about
its internal manufacturing processes
because it fears trade secrets might
become available to competitors.
Noting that it has been sued for the data

by. the Justice Department, Oreffice
added, "That hardly seems like a
sweetheart relationship."
As for the health issue in Midland, he
said the situation was "grossly
exaggerated. I live in Midland not far
from our plant. There is no health

problem in Midland." He said
There is "absolutely no evidence"
dioxin harms humans except for prom-
pting a rash. He said cases involving a
dioxin rash have been tracked for 20
years and there's "no evidence of any
damage."
