The University of Michigan Union March 12 to March 18,1989

ack reads
The U-Club is planning to
expand its horizons this week-
end, past reggae and past rock,
past folk guitars and past
comedians...to poetry. Prof. Bert
Hornback, one of the giants of
literature on campus, will
appear twice to read the poetry
of William Butler Yeats, that
quintessential Irish poet. This is
the same Bert Hornback who ap-
pears each Christmas as Charles
Dickens to read "A Christmas
Carol" to great acclaim. This
time he will interpret, not imper-
sonate, Yeats. He will appear
with Fran Norton, who will sing
Irish ballads. Join them at the U-
Club on the first floor of the
Union on Friday, March 16th at
5:30 and again on Saturday,
March 17th at 8:00. Hornback
does not mean for this to be a
boisterous, brawling St. Patrick's
Day event so much as a hushed,
evocative, perhaps mystical,
Irish event. Make this your
alternative to green beer and
raucous hilarity!
Do you know that the Student
Woodshop, a well-equipped
cabinet and furniture making
facility, is right nearby in the
Student Activities Building at
Maynard? But before you start
creating masterpieces, you
should know how to create them
safely. So the Woodshop is
sponsoring two more safety
classes on Wednesday, March
14th and Thursday, March 15th,
both from 3-5 pm. Call Kurt
Vosburgh at 763-4025 for more

Children's Art Com-
memorates Jerusalem
Prize-winning paintings by
twelve children are being dis-
played now on our campus.
These paintings are the result of
a worldwide competition to
select children's art which would
honor the 20th anniversary of
the reunification of Jerusalem.
Sponsored by Arts and Program-
ming, the Institute of Faculty
and Students on Israel, and the

Israeli Embassy in Washington,
DC, this inspiring show will
appear from now to March 28th
in the Art Lounge on the first
floor of the Michigan Union.
