Brigitte Bardot
Makes Battered 'ride'
'THE BRIDE IS MUCH TOO BEAUTIFUL" stars Brigitte Bardot.
And Louis Jourdan is there, too. He works for a women's magazine
named "The Love of Life." He and a woman called "Judy" who seems
to own the magazine discover Brigitte in a restaurant.,They persuade
her maiden aunts to let her become a cover girl.
And "The Love of Life" sees a would-be actor called "Patrice." He
sees Brigitte and is persuaded to become a cover boy.
So Brigitte, who is known as "Catherine" or "Chou-Chou" depend-,
ing on the formality of the occasion, and Patrice become the darlings
of all France. And of course Chou-Chou becomes the darling of
Patrice. But -her heart is pure. Meanwhile one suspects that Louis,
known as "Michel," is beginning to love Chou-Chou more and Judy
less, even though Judy is divorcing Julian by mail so she can marry
And speaking of marriage, "The Love of Life," i.e. Judy, decides
Patrice and Chou-Chou should get married. "Just for fun."
So they do, except that Patrice loves Chou-Chou and it rends him
to mock matrimony so. He proposes to her and is turned down. So

Mason and Haven Halls, present startling con-
trasts to the building they were supposed to be
part of. Haven Hall, the center of literary col-
lege faculty academic endeavor, is indeed equal
to the task of inspiring research. Two pro-
fessors are granted one metal desk each in a
room, the only good feature of which is that
you can shake hands from the door with any-
one who happens to be in it at the time.
THIS SITUATION, in which expensive build-
ings which are to serve special purposes
seem to be designed by nursery school moppets
as homework projects, is glaringly evident in
new construction. The undergraduate library,!
the foremost example of uncluttered monotony,
was recently- completed. Here is a building as
pleasing as dormitory food, with the added'
advantage that you can never get away from
it. The ostentatious ugliness is broken only by
gaudy yellow curtains (the only visible support
for the front wall).
North Campus, the best hope for aesthetic
salvation, is being developed in a style which
can only be termed "factory modern." Nothing
can be done to save the central campus, a
combination of the worst in modern and tradi-
tional architecture. North Campus may yet be
seen not as an industrial complex, but as a
part of a University. Sensitivity and economy
are not incompatible.
Meanwhile, let's just laugh.

acknowledge that the freedom of 17,000,000
people, the moving back of the Russian fron-
tier, and the only real chance for a true all-
Germany democracy lie in. acceptance of such
a plan. After the initiative is taken by West
Germany it will be up to Russia to decide that
the friendship of the whole German state is
better than the domination of part' and the
hostility of all. A more healthy Europe and a
major step toward world peace is the harvest
waiting to be reaped.

Last night, the M i c h i g a n
Theatre was the scene of a double
horror affair; a thing of dread-
ful delight for stout-hearted on-
lookers. Timid members of the
audience cringed under seats for
nearly three hours, afforded a
temporary respite from the hor-
ror on the screen only by a banal
"Horror of Dracula" turns out
to be another rehash of the vam-
pire story. Count Luigi Dracula
rambles through his draughty
castle, catching cold and fright-
ening the townspeople. Then a
young mystic drops in, to clean
up this evil mess. To Dracula's
annoyance, the mystic spikes a
bosomy young apprentice vam-
pire. But fair play triumphs, when
Dracula eats the mystic for
lunch, and his fiance for dinner.
After numerous blood-lettings,
a wise physician, composer, and

writer, named Ludwig Amadeus
Goethe drives the traditional
stake through the hearts of the
vampires, one and' all, while ten-
der-hearted girls in the audience
shed a tear for poor Dracula, who
loved in vein.

WHAT could possibly follow
Dracula ,on this high, wide, and
deep screen, but "The Thing That
Couldn't Die"? The film opens
with a sweet young girl out look-
ing for water, with her magical
dip stick. Only when the boys
dig, they find a treasure chest.
Who could guess what's in this
decrepit old chest? Spanish Doub-
loons? A Course Evaluation Hand-
book? Brigitte's Bosom? No, it's
just an old head.
Oddly enough, all who look
upon this head promptly come
under its control. The head is
looking for a body which is also

buried. This seems reasonable
enough, granted a few preposter-
ous assumptions. Eventually the
body is unearthed too, and the
two come together with a loud
metallic clank.
A visiting archaeologist discerns
that this split personality dates
from 1529 when it was beheaded
by Sir Francis Drake, (no rela-
tion to Alfred Drake, Mandrake
the Magician, or Drake Duane)
for being naughty in his manor.
After gasps of horror all around,
a thoughtful young fellow con-
fronts the, spectre with an en-
chanted piece of petrified Union
food, and they both crumble to

The outstanding feature of "King

may be disappointing to see
Granger prove that the "blood-

human variety.
It all starts when Deborah Kerr,
described in the book by the same

He doesn't want to go, but she
is willing to pay; he goes. The
hunter's task is simple: namely, to
find the lost diamond mine of
King Solomon since that is what
Miss Kerr's husband had set out
to rediscover.

AT THIS point Granger applies
psychology to the whole mess and
the movie ceases to be an fantasy

MEMBERS' Time is one of the
last items on the Student
Government Council agenda -
only announcements and adjourn-
ment follow - and members are
usually quite tired by then.
But this chance for each mem-
ber to speak informally on any
subject can be very valuable, both
to members and to constituents.
Wednesday night, for example, a
major portion of Members' Time
concerned the role of SGC and of
its members while the meeting to
that time had displayed anything
but awareness of these roles.
The talks began to the left of
President Maynard Goldman and
moved counterclockwise as is cus-
tomary. Administrative Vice-Pres-
ident Jo Hardee spoke first.
Miss Hardee reiterated a point
State Superintendent of Public
Instruction Lynn Bartlett had
made earlier, that student leaders
should remain interested in poli-
tics past graduation if they are to
alleviate the problems facing edu-
SHE COMPARED this obliga-
tion to that of SGC members to
bring back ideas from this sum-
mer's National Student Associa-
tion conference. Too often, she
said, delegates to the conference
have a good time but there is no
This statement and that of
Bartlett point out what has been
a major weakness in SGC. Dur-
ing meetings members show genu-
ine concern with issues facing
them, but during the week be-
tween meetings few bother to con-
sult students for their opinion or
even to go over carefully reports
and motions given them prepara-
tory to the meeting.

"making each tryout feel he has
a place on SGC" as part of this
philosophy, but a subsequent
point was well-taken.
Council members, Seasonwein
said, should approach members of
the Public Relations Committee
before next Tuesday's meeting
and discuss the tryout plans with
A similar point, equally well-
taken, was made by League Presi-
dent Bobbie Maier. "So much of
the time," she charged, "we fail
to find out what the facts 'are."
Miss Maier suggested specifi-
cally calling in experts to address
the Council. This idea should
supplementsbut not replace the
research President Maynard
Goldman told the Council in his
prospectus for the year they are
obligated to carry out.
Scott Chrysler concerned him-
self with the other general point:
the role of SGC on campus. The
Council was "not thinking big"
in approving J-Hop plans similar
to last year's, he charged.
"There is something socially
wrong with an I-M fBuilding
dance," Chrysler declared, "there
is noting elite, gracious or even
nice about it." He characterized
the atmosphere of a League
dance, on the other hand, as more
like that of a country club.
Chrysler concluded his talk
with perhaps the most valid point,
that the Council had not consid-
ered the J-Hop budget in the con-
text of past and future J-Hops
and other dances. "Would a good
J-Hop at the League stimulate
other J-Hops?" he asked. "Would
it stimulate other League dances?"
DAVID KESSEL continued the
discussion of the role of SGC as
a whole. He explained he had just
returned from a meeting of the
Board in Control of Student Pub-

the Council to reconsider the
value of a course book.
Union President Barry Shapiro
stressed the obligation of each
Council member to say and vote
as he thinks.
"The good of the campus is im-
portant," he said, "especially since
student opinion is anti-SGC." Too
often, Shapiro continued, SGC
"takes the easy way out" on con-
troversial issues.
He also criticized Goldman in
this context, saying the chairman
should expedite the meeting less
and allow more expression of
members' opinions.
Goldman, unfortunately, inter-
preted this criticism personally,
particularly that of Kessel who
had acused him of using a "par-
liamentary trick" in cutting off
debate on the booklet. Goldman
said that if the Council is not sat-,
isfied with the way he runs meet-
ings he will resign.
This'misses the point. The poor
precedent of reconsidering past
actions is far less important than
the financial loss and damage to
Council prestige which would re-
sult from an unsuccessful course
booklet. Goldman has committed.
himself to following Robert's
Rules of Order closely but the
sooner he sees that a balance
must be maintained the better off
the Council will be.
ALSO speaking in Members'
Time, Bert Getz presented a fac-
tual report rather than his views
on what 'the Council should be.
Getz reported that his commit-
tee on student parking is meeting
