"This Is Serious-Get Me The
Republican National Committee"
4 .' v( >.

Daily Managing Editor
)URING THE NEXT weeks campus attention
is bound to center on the Student Govern-
ment Council plan.
Up to now SGC has been a strange-sounding
ollection of letters standing for a plan that has
laimed the time and energies of several stu-
ent-faculty committees for more than a year.
GC has received headlines and stories report-
ig its progress and has been subject to serious
iscussion and debate in a small number of
mpussgroups, including Student Legislature.
Among those who have worked with or who
now anything about the plan, sentiment in its
avor is nearly unanimous. But favorable sen-
ment among a hundred or so people on cam-
us is not enough. Student government implies
opular support from the campus. Before SGC
an be voted to replace Student Legislature,
here must be general understanding of the
rganization and over-all implications of the
ew form. The next three weeks should see
roup and individual discussion examining ev-
ry detail of the SGC plan. Behind such discus-
ion lie motives:
1) to stimulate as wide participation as pos-
ible in the Dec. 8-9 elections and,
2) to provide students with sufficient infor-
nation to be able to vote intelligently in the
TOME EXPLANATION ought to be made of
recent SGC history to neutralize oft-heard
iuddled speculation about Regental motives
,nd intents regarding SGC.
The Student Government Council proposal
ras first presented to President Hatcher late
a May when the Laing committee, authorized
o study the student government problem, com-
leted its report. The president accepted the
aing report which contained the statement of
he SGC plan, and in July turned it over to
ewly-appointed Student Affairs Vice-President
ames A. Lewis for his study.
The procedure for passing the plan suggest-
d by the Laing committee included Regental
pproval pending the outcome of an all-campus
eferendum to determine whether SGC could
o into effect. SGC would then have operated
n a two-year trial basis supplanting the pres-
!t SL and Student Affairs Committee.
;INCE THE Board of Regents did not meet in
July, the plan did not officially come to
heir attention until the August meeting. At that
me the foremost item on the agenda was the
aulty dismissal cases and the Board directed
committee including Regents Bonisteel, Her-
ert and Eckert to study the document and re-
ort back.
The Regents' committee did not report back
t the next meeting but met with Vice-Presi-
ent Lewis and Faculty members of the Laing
ommittee to suggest changes in at least 20
ifferent places in the document. These con-
isted largely of clarifying lines of jurisdiction
end of editing. Nothing of the basic concept was
o be altered. Meanwhile Student Legislature,
neeting the night before, came up with three
ecommendations of its own. The Regents' com-
littee did not report back to the full Board but
uthorized Vice-President Lewis to work out
he changes suggested by their committee and
This became the job of the new advisory
ommittee appointed by the vice-president early

in October and which completed its work two
weeks ago. The revised plan was sent to the
Regents for action at their November meeting
and it was hoped that Vice-President Lewis
would at that time be able to secure Regental
approval for the whole plan pending a refer-
IN THE COURSE of discussions with several
Regents prior to the meeting, it became ob-
vious to the vice-president that the only action
the Board would be willing to take at that time
would be authorization of a poll of student opin-
ion, the results to be used in the Board's final
decision. Such action would follow the Board's
precedent of making all its decisions final, not
subject to approval by any other body. The vice-
president then determined that he would ask the
Regents for such an authorization in hopes of
getting some action rather than nothing at all.
So at the meeting in the afternoon when Presi-
dent Hatcher asked, "what action do you want
at this time," the vice-president replied, "an
understanding that the plan could be submitted
to the students for their opinion." A motion ac-
knowledging receipt of the report and author-
izing the student poll was then made by Regent
Eckert and supported unanimously by the Board.
The interesting thing about the action was the
comments made by various Board members be-
fore and after the vote was taken. Regent Boni-
steel indicated the rationale behind the Board's
action when he said, it was important to first
see the energy with which the poll was carried
out and the interest in the plan shown by the
students before any final Regental action. There
was no dissent to comments made by the vice-
president that the plan "in every respect meets
the type of student government we are seeking
to attain." Regent Baits expressed enthusiasm
for the concept of the plan and President Hatch-
er indicated his gratification with the responsi-
ble work being carried on by many student
groups on campus.
THE ABSENCE of unfavorable comment or
of additional suggested changes by the Re-
gents is a strong indication that the Board has
in effect adopted the plan in principle and is
waiting only for a favorable expression of stu-
dent opinion before taking final action. This be-
ing the case thee only thing that could prevent
positive action being taken at the Dec. 17 meet-
ing of the Board would be an inconclusive or
negative vote in the student poll.
It is always risky to speculate about what the
Regents may or may not do at a given meet-
ing. Prophets have been embarrassed often in
the past. Yet in this case it is very difficult to
see how the Regents could justify further study
of the plan resulting in possible changes after
the proposal in its present form is accepted by
a student vote. It is almost certain that the
Board itself approves the plan or it would not
be sticking its neck out calling for the opinion
Obviously a great deal depends on the outcome
of the poll. If there is to be any solution to the
knotty problem of student government in the
near future the poll must show an overwhelm-
ing majority in favor of SGC. In any event there
must be a clear-cut decision either for or
against the plan. An inconclusive vote will un-
doubtedly stymie Regental action and prove the
undoing of more effective student government
in the near future.

Ike Sees
WASHINGTON - President Ei-
senhower and Speaker Joe Mar-
tin were in fine fettle when they
breakfasted at the White House
the other morning.
Over grapefruit, eggs, coffee,
toast (one piece for Ike, who still
watches his waistline), the two
men optimistically agreed: 1, that
the GOP could have done a lot
worse at the polls; and, 2, that re-
lations between Ike and the Dem-
ocratic-controlled congress would-
n't be as strained as some experts
"Naturally, I wanted very much
to win so that our party would re-
main in control of congress," Ei-
senhower told Joe Martin. "But
I'm not discouraged. The Repub-
lican party is still in good shape
and I think I'll be able to get
along with the new congress."
Martin, who tells friends that
his party lost a "Scotch decision"
-a close one-also voiced opti-
mism about the chances of the
Eisenhower legislative program
under a Democratic congress.

Driver Dilemma ...
To the Editor:
A cow might enter the road with-
out looking, but this is to be expect-
ed. She doesn't know any better.
Then too, old Bessy might wander
through a stop sign into the path of
an oncoming car, but again, she is
only a poor dumb animal.
Yet the driver who attempts to
pass through the campus area may
wonder if such meandering is lim-
ited to the bovine specie.
Such things as cross walks and
stop signs seem to mean little to
the "fellow walking student." (Not
knowing Miss Bennett, this bor-
rowed term is meant to apply to
the class at large.)
For those who find this hard to
believe, I would suggest that you
observe the intersection of East U.
and South U. about 1 in the after-
noon, but if this time and place is
inconvenient, contact me, and I am
sure that I can select a time and
place to fit your schedule.
The drivers will give you a
brake, so why not give them a

Characters Are 'Ideas'
In Arts Center Drama
presented by the Dramatic Arts Center.
"THE MOON in the Yellow River," the second presentation of the
Dramatic Arts Center, is an Irish play first produced at the Abbey
in Dublin in 1931. It is, as the Center program points out, "metaphy-
sical rather than poetical." In other words, it is closer to the Conti-
nental drama of that time than it is to the traditional lyricists of the
Irish stage like O'Casey or Synge. It reminds one a great deal of the
Arts Theater Club's "On the Way," by the Norwegian, Helge Krog,
which was I believe, written the same year. In both plays, the major
characters are predominantly vehicles for "ideas" rather than people
who are important in their own right. Consequently, it is the pertinence
of the dramatic conflict of these ideas on which the play depends.
Fortunately, they are of much deeper interest and less coyly persented
than were Shaw's in "Arms and the Man." Johnston's clever manipu-
lation of them overcomes both his lyrical shortcomings and his sur-
prisingly contrived "solution" of the conflict. "The Moon in the Yel-
low River" thereby engages, although perhaps it never quite captivate-
The play's title is derived from Ezra Pound's "Epitaphs":
Pu T
Fu I loved the high cloud and the hill.
Alas, he died of alcohol.
Li Po
And Li Po also died drunk.
He tried to embrace a moon
In the yellow river.
The moon here is the symbol of the patriot dream in Ireland, the
reflected illusion which continued to entrance the Rebel spirits
even into the late Twenties. These men were sucking the dregs in
the long nationalist binge that had just about run its course, and
was making way for a new commercial efficiency,,represented in
the play by a power-plant project in the river valley near where the
drama's action takes place.
A German, Herr Tausch, spearheads the invasion of purpose and
reality from without; he is opposed by the revolutionary leader, Dar-
rell Blake, who is author Johnston's "playboy" as Christy Mahon was
Synge's. If Blake makes, however, a far more sophisticated playboy
than Christy, still the time is out of joint for him. His very lack of
innocence dooms his plan to destroy the plant. He falls before Tausch
and that is the play. The important difference, however, is that while
Synge loved but censured his "playboy," Johnston settles for pity and
idealization of his. Johnston. also needs a philosopher character to
verbalize his sentiments where Synge needed none.
This vestige, the philosopher, indeed almost undoes the play in
the last act by constantly making tortuously paradoxical what is rather
abundantly clear: that the poet has been vanquished by order, justice,
and progress. To help his humorless Polonius seem a little less foolish,
Johnston also adds a gratuitous irony by permitting a couple of drunks
accidentally to blow up the plant after all. This forces the philosopher
back to what is apparently life's only consolation: children. Toora
Loora Looral," as sung by the Irish maid, becomes the play's final
statement, hammering home the much-labored death-birth dichotomy.
As a production, the play was smooth and well-acted. James
Coco, as the German, has the best role in the play and does it
handsomely. In furnishing the only comic touches that do not come
from the stock village types, he is especially effective in the very
amusing first act. He is the man of progress in all his guises; there
is a lot of Chekhov's Lopahin in him. As Blake; a newcomer, Peter
Breck, is suitably galvanic but not dark enough perhaps; he needs
a wisp of cosmic sadness that is more than cynicism.
Director Joseph Gistirik is stuck with the philosopher's role and
can do little with it. He is best as the weary bystander; worst as the
bitter father whose personal problems are rather badly integrated into
the work. Supporting him, Irma Hurley plays a daughter of highly un-
certain age. In minor roles, Burnette Staebler, Ralph Drischell, and
Jerold White do particularly well. Paul Carr, another new pro, turns
in a sensitive job as the young Commandant. His moment as execu-
tioner was uniquely effective drama.
A few technical troubles remain at the Center. Sets seem
sprawling and cluttered. Tri-colored backgrounds continue to be
distracting. Lighting seems too general and uniform; acoustics are
still only fair, and some incidental music might have helped.
But I believe what the theater needs most is bigger audiences.
When enough people start coming, the company may take a chance
on offending some of them, on saying "what the hell" without fear of
the echo mocking them from the cavernous balconies. Because they
are the best group in town, they have a right to expect more chairs
to be filled.
--Bill Wiegand








SADISM is the most vicious aspect of ob-
scenity. No harm is done to society by
teaching, even if somewhat irresponsible, the
beauty and happiness that may come from the
sexual relations of men and women. In the
West commercial interests are allowed to cover
our walls with an endless titillation of sexual
appetite. This can be defended on the ground
that the evils of censorship are greater. But
to apply this to children's books is senseless.
Those who want the civilization of the West
to be destroyed could not have imagined a
subtler or a swifter method of undermining it
than to pervert a whole generation of child-
ren; to give them an immoral instead of a
moral upbringing; to teach them that love is
ugly, that brutality is manly, and that every-
thing that Christ taught is "cissie." Finally a

"The atmosphere of crime comic books is un-
paralleled in the history of children's literature
of any time or any nation. It is a distillation of
viciousness. The world of the comic book is
the world of the strong, the ruthless, the bluff-
er, the shrewd deceiver, the torturer and the
thief. All the emphasis is on exploits where
somebody takes advantage of somebody else,
violently, sexually, or threateningly. It is no
more the world of braves and squaws, but one
of punks and molls. Force and violence in any
conceivable form are romanticized. Construc-
tive and creative forces in children are chan-
neled by comic books into destructive avenues.
Trust, loyalty, confidence, solidarity, sympathy,
charity, compassion are ridiculed. Hostility and
hate set the pace of almost every story. A nat-
ural scientist who had looked over comic books
expressed this to me tersely, 'In comic books
ife is worth nothing; there is no dignity of a
human being.' "
This Nazi morality is now also being fed to
English children. Can magistrates be per-
suaded that sadism and horror, especially when
offered to children, may be properly included
in any definition of obscenity? Can British
parents be roused to action in time before the
vested interests in child seduction are too pow-
