East Talk . . .

JAIL BREAK-The cast rehearses a scene from "Fidelio," Beethoven's opera, which will open at
8:00 p.m. tonight in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater and play tomorrow, Saturday and Monday. Joan
Rossi, as Fidelio, points a gun at Don Pizzaro, played by Thomas Tipton, governor of the prison
where her husband Florestan is being held. Florestan, in chains, is played by William Zakariasen.
Ara Berberian, holding the lantern in the background, takes the part of Rocco, the chief jailer.
"Fidelio" is being sponsored by the speech department and the School of Music.
Dr. Rabinovitch Discusses Adolescents

When does an idealistic adoles-
cent become a cynical, uncaring
or disgruntled adult?
This question suggests an in-
teresting research project to Dr.
Ralph D. Rabinovitch, chief of the
Children's Service in the Univer-
sity Neuropyschiatric Institute.
Far from being crazy, mixed-up
kids, adolescents find themselves
in a crazy mixed-up world. Ac-
cording to Dr. Rabinovitch, "With
all his problems, the adolescent
has priceless assets which given
proper nurture far outweigh the
"In recent years," he comment-
ed, "I have been much impressed
ly the lostness of so many of our
pupils." It is a lostness which
borders on phychic automation,
U. S. Citizens
Find Hostility
In Viet Nam
SAIGON, South Viet Nam (3)--
Americans living in South Viet
Nam have become the victims of
a new and stealthy war of nerves.
American Embassy officials have
received threats against their
lives. Private automobiles of U.S.
diplomats' have been burned or
blown up. Grenades have been
tossed against an apartment build-
ing which houses embassy fami-
No one is quite sure who is be-
hind the campaign of terrorism.
The Americans apparently are
being attacked because they repre-
sent a government which supports
anti-Communist nationalist Pre-
mier Ngo Dinh Diem.
Fighting Stopped
Though street fighting in this
capital of two million has stopped,
the bitterness lingers on. A num-
ber of groups hate Diem and the
Americans who back him.
The Binh Xuyen society, a band
of onetime river pirates who con-
trolled Saigon's vice industry,
brought the country close to civil
war in April. After 48 hours of
bloody battling they were driven
;ut of the city. They still control
a small section of the meandering
Saigon River.
Another implacable Diem enemy
is Gen. Le quang Vinh, better
known as Bacut, head of the re-
bellious Hoa Hoa Religious army
which has spread terror in Viet
Nam's Far West for years. His
strength has been broken but he
still is a source of trouble.
The forces opposing the Premier
are swelled too by the under-
ground of the Communist Viet-
minh. Officially the Reds have
been quiet since'the Geneva armis-
tice gave them North Viet Nam
last year, but they still have a
well-organized and efficient clan-
destine network throughout South
Viet Nam.
Many Frenchmen also are not
friendly to Diem.

Relationship Weakened
"We mustn't blame the teach-
ers, "Dr. Rabinovitch said, "but
something is wrong When we de-
sign schools which weaken rather
than strengthens the teacher-
student relationship."
In an article entitled, "Our Ado-
lescents and their World," pub-
Journal of the University of
lished recently in the English
Journal of the University of Chi-
cago press, Dr. Rabinovitch cites
cases, discussing a few child
psychology cliches in the light of
common sense.
1. "Give the boy his head."
Parents tend to take the adoles-
cents striving for independence so
seriously that they pull the family
rug of security out from under
their children.
"In some families." the child
psychiatrist remarked, "It is as
though parents no longer dare to
direct a child after he has reached
the magic age of 16." He added
Counties Hold
Recall .debate

continued today respite a chal-
lenge from a Manistee County
group. Manistee is part of Miss
Thompson's Ninth Congressional
The move was started earlier
this week by Douglas Fairbanks,
Wexford C o u n t y Democratic
Chairman, and Cadillac City Clerk
Emil Meyer.
Fairbanks charges Rep. Thomp-
son placed her personal feelings
above the nation's safety in pro-.
longing a decision on a proposed
17 million dollar jet air base for
Northern Michigan.
The base, after a months-long
controversy involving Michigan
civic groups, Air Force officials and
political leaders, last week was ap-
proved for construction in Kal-
kaska County, near Traverse City.
Fairbanks said he "Will have
something definite to report on a
recall petition tomorrow," follow-
ing a conference with drafters of
the petition.

that while it is cerainly nice toI
grow up with one's children, it
is also wise to be more mature
than one's children.
2. "Make the amenities fun."
It is perhaps quite appropriate to
want your child to become a
graceful ballroom dancer at 16, but
teachers should stand firm against
growing pressure that such social
graces be forced on 11 or even
ten-year olds.
"The children themselves are
often ready, in fact anxious, to be
reasonable in these matters, and
where the parent's social stand-
ards foster superficilaity and
phoniness, it is all the more the
school's job to stand firmly for
real enduring values."
Life More Gruesome
3. "Comic books are the evil
of the times." Actually life itself
is more gruesome than the comic
books, Dr. Rabinovitch remarked.
It turns out that the really grue-
some ones are more read by adults
than children.
He added that he did not doubt
some horror comics are disturbing
to children, but that modern
bogies such as housing scandals,
tax frauds and professional liars
in government are far worse be-
cause the children have no escape
from them.
"At least in Superman and
Mighty Mouse the child knows that
good. triumphs over evil."
Sex Education
4. "Give adolescents solid cours-
es in sex education." Like most
panaceas, this one represents a
gross over-simplification. It is
helpful to teach the anatomy and
physiology of sexual functions,
but only of secondary importance.
"The primary elements of sex
education are found in family re-
lationships, in feeling tones be-
tween parents and between parent
and child."
5. "It's all became of momism."
Today, Dr. Rabinovitch comment-
ed, the tendency is to equate mas-
culinity with toughness or lack of
feeling. "Well," he speculated, "if
our aim is to raise gangsters, then,
of course, we 'ust avoid senti-
ment at all cost."
Sentiment Important
If, however, we want to product
"thinking, feeling young citizens
capable of spotting potential des-
pots," then sentiments, far from
being a sign of weakness, has an
important place in the school ex-

Talent Turns to Shakespeare


For those who are interested in
Hi-Fi but don't quite know where
to start, the Library Staff Record
Club has assembled an exhibit
which is now on view in the first
floor hall of the Chemistry Build-
A book list on the subject also
has been compiled by Robert E.

This book list includes some of
the most recent books on four
phases of the subject, high fidelity
sound equipment, periodicals,
acoustics of music and record
guides and catalogs.
Also available in the Chemistry
Library are copies of catalogs and
brouchers from the manufacturers
of Hi-Fi equipment.
Edward Weber, the apresident of
the club, says that this display is
set up to help the beginner in
hi-fi find the basic sources that
are available in the library for
more complete understanding of
the field.
Weber added that there is a

good possibility that the exhibit
will be shown on a larger scale
during the regular school year.

NEW YORK (P) - Television,
hunting omnivorously for new
writers, might well take a closer
look at a talented English drama-
tist who's scored some tremendous
hits with London theatergoers.
His name is William Shakes-
A few of his works have been
televised from time to time. He
presents technical difficulties be-
mause he breaks so many theatri-
cal rules.
He crowds a state with charac-
ters and action. He seldom bothers
to motivate a character's entrance
or exit. Basically a poet, he writes
in an infectious pentameter, a
practice frowned on by our most
successful producers.
Long Speeches
Noel Coward says no character's
speech should be more than two
lines, but young Shakespeare's
characters sometimes speak a hun-
dred lines. Shunning the modern
situation, this Englishman reach-
es far back into history for his

Subtlety Sacrificed
This department was fortunate
in being able to read the original
London script before seeing the
American televesion version. The
original contained great subtleties
of thought and characterization.
In cutting a three-hour play to a
one-hour television drama, Leo
Penn sacrificed subtlety.
But in losing subtlety, he did
gain pace. To this viewer it seem-
ed that pace and clarity of mean-
ing were what director on Petrie
was trying to achieve.
To one who has read the play or
seen it in the longer stage version,
the result was flat and broad. The
acting too was shaped for pace
and clarity of meaning.
It's difficult to believe that any-
one who saw the Studio One pro-
duction can now have any ques-
tion concerning what "Julius
Caesar" is about.
