BEHIND CLOSED DOORS:
University Club Quiet Amidst Bustle
By JAMES BOW
Persons passing the south side
of the Union may see a door
topped with a canopy and marked
with the words 'University Club,
Those eligib'e to pass through
the door as "members only" are
all male members of the Univer-
sity faculty and administration.
The dcor hac been there for 19
years, silent in the bustle of acti-
vity which surrotnds it in the
neighboring Un-n, West Quads
ritg-e and Trte.ational Center.
Behind the door, dark-paneled
walls greet visitors not coldly, but
quietly, and dim lights in the
chandeliers add a reserved flour-
ish to the rooms.
Or the first floor is a games
room with fcur billiard and five
pool tables. When a few mem-
bers play bottle pool at the first
table Arthur Marsh, club steward,
"officiates" from behind the desk
near the door.
He explains the intricacies of
bottle pool, played with a leather
cone placed on the table and re-
calls the recent faculty-student
billiard tournament in which the
faculty won "hands down."
Beyond the games room is the
dining room where approximately
100 of the club's members bring

president of the University Club,
the organization was founded "to

Latin and Greek may be "dead",
Prof. Frank O. Copley of the Clas-
sical Studies department admits,
"but that doesn't make these lan-
guages any less fascinating."
"Latin should be studied first of
all for its own sake because it
is interesting and fun," the dy-
namic Latin professor said, "and
then for the numerous utilitarian
reasons for studying the lan-

He explains that for any serious
student of law. history or philo-
sophy, Latin proves invaluable
since it was "the official language
of diplomacy" before the 18th
century and most of the learned
writings of the early modern
period were in Latin.
For the youthful-looking classi-
cist, the interest and fun of Latin
and Greek is in their value as lit-
He discussed with animation

enthusiasm for Greek and Latin
poetry, "Exclusus Amator, A Stu-

In his book, published last fall,
Prof. Copley traces the "rejected
lover" theme, or paraclausithyron,
from its origin through its subse-
quent development in Greek and
According to Prof. Copley, the
paraclausithyron began as a
"boisterous street ballad" sung by
a drunken young lover on the
doorstep of his mistress' house
after he had been locked out.

Sorrow and Suffering
"The Greeks used the para-
clausithyron for a song to express
the sorrow and sufferings of the
rejected lover," Prof. Copley ex-
plained, "while the Romans great-
ly embroidered the standard
theme with psychological and
erotic connotations, making it a
vehicle for complex love prob-
The Latinist's most recent ef-
forts have been devoted to trans-
lating the poems of Catullus, the
the first century B.C. Latin poet.
"Catullus," Prof. Copley re-
marked, "in his day was consid-
ered a most radical poet, using
subjects never before used in poet-
ry. He wrote everything from the
most beautiful lyric love poetry
to the coarsest gutter doggerel."
The translation, now being pub-
lished by the University Press, will
be available next year.
Prof. Copley's translation ef-
forts began about seven years ago,
when during a lull in the school
year, he began translating from
the Latin several comedies by
Plautus and Terence "simply for
the fun of it."
This bit of "frivolity" unexpec-
tedly led to publication of the
plays by the Liberal Arts Press.
The professor admitted modestly
that he was surprised and rather
embarrassed when the plays were
used in several Great Books
"The plays are rather frothy
and their literary value is less
than their historical value in the
development of European come-
dy," Prof. Copley remarked.
French and Italian plays were
greatly influenced by these Latin
comedies. Moliere, for example,
used themes from Plautus in his
