Crossland knows how
hk's going to get there

'U' celebrates
campus writers
(Continued from Page 1)

B losph Kraus
As his new album proves again,
Dave Crossland has all the tools he
needs to make it as a professional
folininger - if he wants to.
The graduating University senior
makes his final stop at the Ark
tonight before he goes on to join
the , real world." But, like most of
his classmates, Crossland doesn't
now how that real world will
ok
His new album, I Don't Know
Whe I'm Going, is a look at
wheoe he's been over the last few
yeaf$ as he became the first
undergraduate to headline an Ark
sho in at least four years,
estaillished himself as one of the
most popular political singers of
hetrea, and studied Irish and
erican topical music.
The title song, a fast-paced
bluegrass tune, accurately sums up
the ombination of self-assurance
anduncertainty that Crossland has
shoicn in previous performaces. He
sings, "I don't know where I'm
going, but I do know how to get
there."
" ince he began playing the
urtar over seven years ago,
grassland's been a lot of places he
probably never expected to be.
One of his first professional

performances was at the Pentagon.
Recalling the be-medalled army
officers that listened to him play
with his high school band, he said
with some chagrin, "At the time I
didn't know all the words to
'Alice's Restaurant' (Arlo Guthrie's
anti-draft anthem) and I thought that
would be the perfect place to play
it."
He learned the song before too
long, and made a stir in his local
post office by playing it as he
registered for the draft exactly a
month and a day after his 18th
birthday.
For all the fun he has with his
music, Crossland takes it seriously.
Just finishing an honors thesis on
Woody Guthrie, he says he respects
the fabled folk singer because, "His
songs are different and they're out
to make you realize it's okay to be
different."
Crossland's own songs tend to
be different in a quiet way. The
finestbcut on theanew album is
probably "Seija," a haunting song
about a long-distance relationship.
While he's been performing it for
years, it's strengthened on the
album by the addition of his
brother's beautiful harmony vocals.
There are more than a few songs
that should surprise long-time
Crossland fans. In "Airplane" his
friend Tate Stephenson has an

Crossland searches for the answer tonight.

electric guitar solo. In the catchy
"Lost in Boston," there's a horn
section.
"I mainly did (the album)
because there were a lot of people,
friends and friends of friends, who
wanted a tape. I wanted to make
something to get the music out and
share it," he said.
But Crossland doesn't know
where he'll take his music now that
he's finished the album. He plans
to go to Boston after graduation
where he hopes to find a job as a
high school teacher.
"The record is from the past few

years. Now I feel like a lot of that
is behind me," he said.
He says he would like to
perform in the Boston area, but he
isn't sure what opportunities he'll
have. "All I know is I'm heading in
that direction and I'm not really
sure what's going to happen when I
get there," he said. Laughing he
added, "That's the way to do life."
Dave Crossland plays at 8 p.m.
tonight at the Ark. Tickets are $5
for students. Copies of I Don't
Know Where I'm Going' are
available for $8.

Committee chair John Aldridge as
"one of the most prolific American
writers of her generation."
Oates called inspiration a con-
trasting of sudden flashes of
brilliance with slow, often agon-
izing, inspirations. She also noted
two different writing styles. One,
"in a white heat where you don't
know where you're going" and the
other in ordered and methodical
fashion with outlines and notes.
With self-deprecating humor,
Oates said, "The execution is the
difficult part of inspiration. I can't
believe it when I hear (Aldridge) say
I've written 51 books."
Oates discussed various means of
creating and elaborating on ideas,
using examples of various well-
known writers including James
Joyce, Joseph Heller, Henry
James, and John Updike. She also
discussed the genesis of one of her
own novels.
"Thinking of a story is like
seeing something out of the corner
of your eye," Oates said. "You
know it's out there but you can't
quite see what it is."
Oates concluded by speaking of
thrill of being a young writer,
relating a young Hemingway or
Joyce toasomeone who had just
won a Hopwood Award.
"It's so exciting and touching to
think about young people who are
writing and don't know where the
words are going to lead next, much
less where they are going to lead
their life," she said.
