Parietal system satisfactory by M a r y H o u t i n g

T h e parietal h o u r policy, instigated last O c t o b e r , is presently being reviewed and evaluated by the o f f i c e of the Dean of S t u d e n t s t o d e t e r m i n e t h e effectiveness of the policy and possible m e a n s of improving it. O N E O F THE specific issues being dealt with is the f u n c t i o n and purpose of the unit councils. These s t u d e n t s , a p p o i n t e d t o supervise the open h o u r s policy, have been criticized by m a n y s t u d e n t s as useless, r e p o r t e d Associate Dean of S t u d e n t s Michael Gerrie. Unit councils could be abolished and their d u t i e s assumed by the resident advisors, a l t h o u g h

many s t u d e n t s have q u e s t i o n e d w h e t h e r it is i m p o r t a n t f o r anyone to be present in an a u t h o r i t a tive capacity during guest hours, he n o t e d . DEAN O F S T U D E N T S R o b e r t De Young and Associate Dean of S t u d e n t s J e a n n e Sprik agreed with Gerrie t h a t in general the parietal system has gone well. While there have been s o m e violations, most have been of a m i n o r nature such as an intentional extension of t h e designated hours. In those cases where discipline has b e e n necessary, " n o t only has justice prevailed, but it has been a learning experience for those involved," De Young s t a t e d .

College designated RCA grant recipient by G a r r e t t D e G r a f f

Unless the u n e x p e c t e d happens, Hope College will s o o n be the recipient of $ 2 5 , 0 0 0 f r o m the R e f o r m e d C h u r c h of America to establish an e d u c a t i o n a l program for minority s t u d e n t s . THE F U N D S WERE designated for the college recently by a c o m m i t t e e of representatives f r o m each of the three RCA colleges. This c o m m i t t e e ' s p r o p o s a l is currently being considered by the Black Council of the RCA. Final approval of the proposal m u s t c o m e f r o m the General P r o g r a m s Council of the RCA. T h e $ 2 5 , 0 0 0 is part of a $ 5 0 , 0 0 0 f u n d established by the General S y n o d of the RCA in J u n e . The remaining m o n e y is to be split b e t w e e n Central College, the RCA seminaries and a proposed s u m m e r p r o g r a m at S o u t h e m Normal High School, Brewt o n , Ala., to be j o i n t l y o p e r a t e d by all three RCA colleges. HOPE'S PROPOSED t o t a l was b r o k e n d o w n into $ 1 0 , 0 0 0 f o r e s t a b l i s h m e n t of courses designed to meet the special needs of black s t u d e n t s , and $15,000 for a scholarship p r o g r a m f o r m i n o r i t y students. T h e proposal that w o n the f u n d s f o r H o p e was w r i t t e n by black s t u d e n t s at Hope. T h e purpose of the courses o u t l i n e d , the proposal states, is " t o bring a b o u t courses within the college curricu-

lum that will give black s t u d e n t s the tools and skills necessary to return to their c o m m u n i t i e s . Prese n t l y , " the p r o p o s a l c o n t i n u e s , " t h e courses o f f e r e d in m a n y educational areas are not totally relevant a « d / o r applicable to and for the experiences of black students." THE COURSES p r o p o s e d include "Black Political T h o u g h t , " "Sociology of the I n n e r - c i t y " and "Ghetto Economics." The $ 1 0 , 0 0 0 will be used to aid in the purchase of necessary materials and the hiring of needed faculty m e m b e r s , Associate Dean of Academic Affairs J o h n Stewart said. Any faculty hired to help with the new courses would not have actual teaching f u n c t i o n s , according to the proposal drawn up by the s t u d e n t s which states t h a t the " c o u r s e s will be initiated, structured, conducted and carried t h r o u g h by the s t u d e n t s with a faculty m e m b e r assisting in an advisory c a p a c i t y . " HOPE HAD WORKED f o r several m o n t h s trying to secure a p o r t i o n of the RCA m o n e y . T h e H o p e proposal was first s u b m i t t e d to the c o m m i t t e e in the early fall. Dean Stewart said that the college is " d e l i g h t e d t h a t the RCA has seen fit to raise this m o n e y f o r m i n o r i t y e d u c a t i o n . 1 think it is going to be a great boost for black studies program s on c a m p u s , " he added.

De Y o u n g expressed disapp o i n t m e n t , however, that parietals "haven't accomplished all we thought they would accomplish. We hoped they would provide an o p p o r t u n i t y for more s t u d e n t s to get to k n o w each o t h e r . " He c o m m e n t e d that s t u d e n t s and organizations on c a m p u s have done little to make parietals m o r e effective with more imaginative a p p r o a c h e s such as o p e n house. He added that any f u r t h e r effectiveness of parietals will not c o m e through legislation, but must come f r o m within the residence halls themselves. SINCE P A R I E T A L h o u r s have failed in a sense to bring the male and f e m a l e e l e m e n t s of the c a m p u s together, De Y o u n g said he would r e c o m m e n d moving some of the w o m e n ' s d o r m i t o r i e s to the s o u t h side of t h e c a m p u s . Gerrie stated that he has considered integrating t h e c a m p u s in such a manner and has requested the C a m p u s Life Board to investigate this possibility. Any initiative and s u p p o r t f o r this proposal must come f r o m the student b o d y , he n o t e d . The O f f i c e of the Dean of S t u d e n t s will evaluate the entire parietal p r o c e d u r e on t h e basis of their regular evaluations t h r o u g h out the semester and on o p i n i o n s and r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s of RA's, head residents and s t u d e n t s . Reco m m e n d a t i o n s for improving the policy m u s t go to the CLB, which is responsible for e n a c t i n g any change in the parietals bill.

Out loco parentis The favorable report on parietal hours coupled with the extension of key privileges to second semester freshman women are two commendable developments favoring an increase in student responsibility. Both should be regarded as valid indicators that Hope students are capable of handling the long overdue reforms in the doctrine of in loco parentis. To be satisfied with these concessions would be to accept the theory that social change is dependent upon

anchor editorials a homogeneous mentality, that improvements are possible only when they satisfy the desires of an entire society. Such is not the case. Social change occurs when a vocal minority becomes aware of the necessity of change, when a vocal minority demands concessions that go beyond the immediate aspirations of the society, when a vocal minority responds to the responsibilities of leadership. The case stands with a marked historical precedent. The Black Rev-

olution in this country has not waited for the sanction of White conservatism, but has determined its own needs and imposed those needs upon the conscience of the society. To do less would be to fail the demands of leadership. It is an obligation to both the minority represented and the society that such demands be made. Change occurs only within the medium of constantly applied pressure. Change occurs only when the reformer is not satisfied with concessions. Change occurs only when demand is matched with a tenacity for immediate response. Those members of the Hope community who feel the need for the total eradication of the college's in loco parentis policy must become vocal and adamant in that pursuit. The demands are simple. The.college must abolish closing hours, must grant the unrestricted privilege of off-campus housing, and must end the programed surveillance of open dormitory activities. The actualization of these demands may only be achieved when those students who defend their necessity actively pursue their implementation.

Tristan and Iseult On the one hand Tristan, on the other Iseult; soundly asleep in their enforced chastity. While between them glimmers the bright, two-edged sword of virtue, protector of the innocent, somnabulent purveyor of p u r i t y - plucked from the scabbard of night, the silent scimitar of saintliness. Her grip is the church, imposing gothic guardian, restorer of respect, a harsh handle, heavy in the hand of the Holy. Dimnent Chapel, severing the wills of the male from the wiles of the female. A most sacred erection, she stands as a bastion for the weak, anchoring the divine line of demarcation across which no man may cast a glance or cavort with the graceful. Her hilt is the red-walled archedifice Van Raalte. A domineering deterent to the sexually starved. Van

Raalte looks with wise eyes of age on the fumbling follies of youth, sees from his scorning brow the Keeper of Keys, alone in her room, and safe from the scintillating sensuality of the Fraternity complex. Oh Durfee, think not to stain thy name, think not to cast thy daughters, defenseless, before the damned desire of APO. Her edge, the keen edge of culture, keeps watch over the capricious satyrs of Kollen. This bastion reflects the ultimate weapon in the college's campaign against perversion and promiscuity. The cultural center, a standing reminder that the eyes of Kollen shall not look on the body of Phelps. Who then would disturb the sleeping purity of Iseult, who would awaken the desires of Tristan. Let us keep our college safe and segregated, complacent in the security of sleep.

Hope disintegrating? Wayne V a n d e r Byl was right! T h e Hope College C o m m u n i t y has disintegrated.

Nixon's big mistake by Art Buchwald F v c r y o n e seems to have his o w n t h e o r y as to h o w we can get out of V i e t n a m . Many critics are q u e s t i o n i n g President N i x o n ' s strategy of winding d o w n the war by enlarging it. PROF. HEINR1CH A p p l e b a u m , w h o works at t h e Institute for t h e S t u d y of Undeclared Wars, has been highly skeptical of the President's secret plan to get us o u t of V i e t n a m . " N i x o n ' s big m i s t a k e , " said A p p l e b a u m , "is t h a t he's withdrawing the w r o n g troops." "1 d o n ' t u n d e r s t a n d , " 1 said. " H e is pulling out an average of 3 , 0 0 0 ground c o m b a t t r o o p s a week. T h a t s o u n d s good on paper. But the men he is w i t h d r a w i n g are fighting m e n . " "WHAT'S WRONG with t h a t ? " T h e p r o f e s s o r went to his b l a c k b o a r d . "We k n o w that for every American fighting man in V i e t n a m there are nine men to support him behind the lines. These include soldiers w h o work in the PX, t h e o f f i c e r s ' clubs, the supply d e p o t s , special services, and t h e post offices, plus cooks, chaplains' assistants and public i n f o r m a t i o n specialists." A p p l e b a u m wrote o n the b l a c k b o a r d . " F o r each fighting GI the President pulls o u t , he leaves behind nine soldiers w h o are not e q u i p p e d to d e f e n d themselves. When the President justifies all the things he's doing to p r o t e c t American lives, he is really talking a b o u t the s u p p o r t t r o o p s w h o are expected to remain in Vietnam a f t e r the fighting t r o o p s are pulled o u t . " "WHAT'S THE s o l u t i o n ? " "Well," said A p p l e b a u m , " o n c e again the President has all his priorities fouled up. If he really w a n t e d to pull our American t r o o p s out of V i e t n a m , he would w i t h d r a w the s u p p o r t troops first and the fighting m e n l a s t . " OH

" B u t that would mean closing the PXs and t h e o f f i c e r s ' c l u b s , " 1 p r o t e s t e d . " R i g h t o n , " he replied. " T h e s o o n e r we close the PXs, o f f i c e r s ' clubs, movie theaters and public relations o f f i c e s , the s o o n e r all our t r o o p s will be f o r c e d to leave V i e t n a m . No A m e r i c a n Army can remain a n y w h e r e w i t h o u t the a m e n i t i e s of l i f e . " "It's awful risky." "LOOK," SAID A p p l e b a u m , " t h e Presid e n t says he w a n t s an orderly w i t h d r a w a l of all troops f r o m Vietnam. What is m o r e orderly than first w i t h d r a w i n g the t r o o p s w h o c a n ' t fight? T h e fighting GIs must stay behind to p r o t e c t the rear. " O n c e the s u p p o r t t r o o p s are o u t , Nixon can start w i t h d r a w i n g t h e c o m b a t troops." "It makes sense on y o u r b l a c k b o a r d , " I said. "IT'S THE ONLY s o l u t i o n , " Appleb a u m said. " T h e more c o m b a t t r o o p s Nixon withdraws, the m o r e danger t h e r e is to t h e n o n c o m b a t t r o o p s , and eventually the President will have to d o s o m e t h i n g very stupid to fulfill his promise of p r o t e c t i n g American b o y s . " "Would the Pentagon go for i t ? " I asked. " T h e y have to. All the trouble t h e A r m y is having in V i e t n a m w i t h its own t r o o p s is being caused in t h e bases well behind the lines. T h a t ' s w h e r e all the fights, pot s m o k i n g and fragging of o f f i c e r s is taking place. If you close the rear bases and send those GIs h o m e , m o r a l e will pick up 100 p e r c e n t . " "DOES THIS MEAN you w o u l d n ' t send Bob Hope over t o Vietnam any m o r e ? " 1 asked. " I ' m afraid so. If the President k n e w he c o u l d n ' t send Bob Hope to V i e t n a m , he'd have all of o u r t r o o p s out of there by Christmas."

T H E 1 9 7 0 W I N N E R of the C a l d e c o t t m e d a l is Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, w r i t t e n and illustrated by William Steig. Steig has w r i t t e n t w o o t h e r c h i l d r e n ' s b o o k s , Roland the Minstrel Pig and C D S . He is also well-known as a c a r t o o n i s t f o r the New Yorker. Sylvester and the Magic Pebble is d e d i c a t e d to his o w n children. Sylvester is a d o n k e y whose special h o b b y is collecting interesting p e b b l e s . He finds a magic p e b b l e , and o n his way h o m e to m a k e use of the pebble, he r u n s into a lion. In a state of c o m p l e t e panic Sylvester wishes that he would turn i n t o a r o c k ; he does, and d r o p s t h e pebble in the transformation. MOST O F T H E b o o k is dev o t e d to t h e search f o r Sylvester by t h e e n t i r e animal k i n g d o m and the grief of Sylvester's p a r e n t s

over the strange d i s a p p e a r a n c e of their s o n . Happily, the p a r e n t s decide t o go o n a picnic to bolster their spirits, and t h e y just h a p p e n to c h o o s e a very special rock to use as a t a b l e . Papa D u n c a n sees the magic pebble and p u t s it on the rock "in m e m o r y of S y l v e s t e r . " Sylvester i m m e d i a t e l y wishes he would t u r n back i n t o a d o n k e y , and p a r e n t s and child are r e u n i t e d . T h e y lock the magic pebble in a safe because they are h a p p y n o w with what they have. T H E B O O K D O E S not rely on the p i c t u r e s alone; t h e story is well-told. T h e language is simple, and yet n o t c o n d e s c e n d i n g . Steig uses w o r d s c a r e f u l l y . F o r exa m p l e , a distinction is m a d e b e t w e e n rain ceasing and rain s t o p p i n g gradually. Steig even uses a new word to describe Sylvester in his altered c o n d i t i o n - " s t o n e dumb." The illustrations are b e a u t i f u l . T h e simple lines a n d soft c o l o r s create a gentle and sensitive m o o d for the s t o r y . Steig uses water color and ink to create a p i c t u r e for the climactic e m o t i o n a l moment of each page. T h e r e is an especially lovely series of landscapes s h o w i n g Sylvester (in rock f o r m ) d u r i n g fall, winter and spring. T h e magic red pebble is always t h e r e - so close, but so far away. F A L L IS D O N E in reds and golds. T h e sun has just set, leaving a b e a u t i f u l p u r p l e glow in the s k y . Winter is very stark. Steig uses d i f f e r e n t shades of white and grey. The only o t h e r color is the light b r o w n of the leafless trees

A lot of p e o p l e will rush out and b u y Janis J o p l i n ' s new a l b u m Pearl because it's the last album that she will ever d o , and Janis is Janis. T h e y ' l l t a k e it home and listen and t h e y ' l l say " o u t a s i t e " and " f a r - o u t " because the a l b u m is Janis. SHh SINGS blues. She is blues and t h a t ' s all that they'll hear. They'll call all their f r i e n d s m to listen to the a l b u m and they'll all sit a r o u n d and listen and say h o w bad it is that J a m s is no longer w i t h us to put out anymore " f a r - o u t " albums. It's really a s h a m e t h a t this will h a p p e n , but it will. Many will buy and listen t o Pearl but few will hear. S o m e will b u y and listen and s u d d e n l y t h e y will hear. What is there to h e a r ? T h e r e ' s Janis in transition.

{

J A N I S IS B L U E S because her life was blue. We all have heard a b o u t h o w hard Janis has had it and we can u n d e r s t a n d why Janis sings the blues. Pearl is not blues. Pearl is a song of life, a claim on happiness. J a n i s sings in blues because that is w h a t she does best. But Pearl c o n t a i n s songs of love. Janis was h a p p y when she was m a k i n g Pearl. Janis was in love and she sang: My love is like a seed baby It just n e e d s time to grow It's growing s t r o n g e r day by day Keep y o u r f a i t h in me b a b y

But Pearl c o n t a i n s blues that are real blues at the same t i m e . People w h o listen can find the old J a m s still there, of course. T h e old Janis could never die; but Janis was h a p p y . THE REALIZATION that she's h a p p y p r o b a b l y will c o m e to most people when t h e y listen to her " s o n g of great social and political i m p o r t " in which she asks the Lord for a Mercedes Benz, a color T . V . and a night on the t o w n . At t h e end of the song she a n n o u n c e s " t h a t ' s i t " and laughs. Her laugh m a y well be t h e t u r n i n g point for m a n y . It will catch their non-hearing ears and p e r h a p s t h e y will start to pay a t t e n t i o n to w h a t Janis is saying. P E A R L C O N T A I N S t w o songs that Janis w r o t e herself, Mercedes Benz and a good old J a n i s blues n u m b e r Move Over. T h e o t h e r selections were w r i t t e n by various composers. Musically Pearl is far s u p e r i o r to any previous Joplin w o r k . Janis uses her voice to the limit on Cry Baby, but at t h e same time proves herself t o m a n y by singing s o f t and clear o n several songs. Full Tilt Boogie is a perfect back u p g r o u n d for Janis; t h e y ' r e musically much tighter t h a n her previous b a n d s . Pearl will p r o b a b l y , be a gold a l b u m f o r Janis. Perhaps it will sell f o r t h e w r o n g reasons, but it will sell and that is good because Pearl deserves t o sell.

and of a lonely wolf h o w l i n g as he sits o n t o p of p o o r Sylvester. Spring is full of interesting colors. The only e x c e p t i o n is Sylvester. As a rock he is a very dull grey. In t h e midst of new life, Sylvester's " h o p e l e s s " c o n d i t i o n is m a d e more painful. T H E MOODS OF the characters are vividly p o r t r a y e d in the pictures. The lion is particularly captivating. At first his face is mean with f u r r o w e d b r o w and gnashing t e e t h . A f t e r Sylvester t u r n s into a r o c k , the lion's expression is one of surprise with wide-open eyes. Finally, when the lion gives u p trying to find the d o n k e y that he's sure was there a m o m e n t ago, he is so c o n f u s e d and b e f u d d l e d that his eyes are crossed and his whiskers are drooping.

T h e sun disappears f r o m the pictures as soon as Sylvester b e c o m e s a s t o n e . It only reappears when the d o n k e y is reunited with his parents. In that scene t h e sun e x p l o d e s in the sky with flashes of orange, blue and yellow. It is as if s o m e o n e had planned a f i r e w o r k s display to celebrate. Sylvester and the Magic Pebble has t w o old and familiar t h e m e s : wishful thinking can lead to t r o u b l e , and happiness is to be f o u n d in y o u r own back yard. Most children in this c o u n t r y have heard the story of the old fisherman w h o was granted three wishes and wasted them all; and most children in this c o u n t r y have heard D o r o t h y ' s response to her trip to Oz: " T h e r e ' s n o place like h o m e . " Steig has created a fable that is fresh and charming. It was a delight to read.

BECAUSE T H I S book was written and illustrated for children and not for twenty-year-old children's b o o k lovers, this reviewer asked a third-grader what he t h o u g h t of the b o o k {Sylvester is shelved with the third-grade b o o k s at the Herrick Public Library). David read the b o o k slowly. He laughed o u t loud twice - once when Sylvester t u r n e d into a rock, and once when Sylvester became a d o n k e y again and spilled his p a r e n t s ' picnic on the g r o u n d . He returned the b o o k w i t h o u t comment. "Well?" "It's nice." "Did you like the p i c t u r e s ? " " Y e a h , t h e y ' r e nice. " "What d o you t h i n k ? " " . . . I liked it." And t h a t ' s no small c o m p l i m e n t f o r a picture b o o k to receive f r o m a f o o t b a l l star!

The white problem 11 by Bob Blanton

" T h e r e seems to be s o m e t h i n g in o u r laws and i n s t i t u t i o n s peculiarly a d a p t e d to the AngloSaxon American race, u n d e r which they will p r o s p e r , but u n d e r which all o t h e r s wilt and die . . . There is something m y s t e r i o u s a b o u t i t , " so stated Congressman Alexander Duncan m 1845. MR. D U N C A N , it can be said expresses in these few w o r d s the h o r r i f y i n g reality which people of color have e x p e r i e n c e d , and cont i n u e to e n d u r e , since the birth of this " g r e a t " n a t i o n . If o n e studies history a c c u r a t e l y , the t w o evolutions t h a t serve as the f o u n d a t i o n for this racist system are the w e s t w a r d expansion and slavery. During the westward e x p a n sion there was a d e l i b e r a t e , s y s t e m a t i c e l i m i n a t i o n of t h e " I n d i a n " by the white settlers. T h r o u g h t h e means of s t a r v a t i o n , intentional infection with diseases, and overt massacre, the white man reduced the red p o p u lation f r o m more than o n e million in the late eighteenth c e n t u r y , to less t h a n 5 0 0 , 0 0 0 by the end of the n i n e t e e n t h century'. We can c o n c l u d e that the white man had practiced a f o r m of " H i t l e r i s m " . A L S O J H E WHITE m a n in the U.S. established and m a i n t a i n e d for nearly 2 5 0 years, the m o s t brutal, savage and d e h u m a n i z i n g slave system ever k n o w n on the face of the e a r t h . This system was based solely on color. L e o n e B e n n e t , a black historian, e s t i m a t e s at least 12 million blacks died o n r o u t e to this c o u n t r y in slave ships. Bennet says t h a t these slave ships had n a m e s like " T h e G o o d Ship J e s u s " , etc. . . which seems to say something about how your "founding fathers" misconstrued their o w n religion. Lord k n o w s they d i d n ' t mean to! AS I H A V E o f t e n m a i n t a i n e d , there is n o black p r o b l e m in this c o u n t r y , neither is t h e r e a red problem nor a brown problem. The p r o b l e m of race in this society is primarily and f o r e m o s t a white p r o b l e m .

Present s o c i o - e c o n o m i c scales of this society indicate that it is the people of color w h o are at the b o t t o m . In the United S t a t e s there may be a class system according to the d i s t r i b u t i o n of wealth, but there is more definitely a caste system according to o n e ' s color. WHITE RACISM HAS a f f e c t e d and is still significantly a f f e c t i n g the thinking process of the every day white Americans, and what is p e r h a p s worse, the policies of the g o v e r n m e n t . T o be sure, there is s o m e t h i n g psychologically wrong with white people in regards to race (as well as patriotism and the Hag). For e x a m p l e , w h e n blacks move into a white s u b u r b , s o m e whites in that area begin to move o u t , which indicates to me, to some degree, that those whites are r u n n i n g away. WHITES, AND T H O S E w h o want to be w h i t e , are forever saying, " T h i s is a b e a u t i f u l c o u n t r y " , and " T h i s is a free s o c i e t y , " etc. T h e most disturbing thing a b o u t this is that these people actually believe such c o n d i t i o n s are prevalent in this society t o d a y . T h e y seem to be ignoring t h e h u n d r e d of t h o u s a n d s of ratinfested homes, the g h e t t o e s , the prison camp reservations, and all o t h e r unbearable atrocities t h a t face people of color in this country. One must agree that t h e practices of the red and black have set a n u m b e r of t r a d i t i o n s that c o n t i n u e to exist t o d a y . O n e is the ideology of inferiority. T h e concept of laziness is o f t e n applied to peopl? of color by the white man. T h e white slaveo w n e r s used to work the a s s ^ o f f of the black slaves, 18 h o u f ^ o r 7 days a week, and t h e n still/dill t h e slaves lazy. ^ P R E S E N T D A Y history b o o k s lead us to believe that it was t h e " I n d i a n " who introduced the " a r t " of scalping. However, this is false. It was the English w h o first practiced such an " a r t " . T h e y even paid 4 0 English p o u n d s f o r the scalp of a male " I n d i a n " , and

20 p o u n d s for the scalp of an " I n d i a n " w o m a n or child. People of color in this c o u n t r y have not lynched whites, b o m b e d their churches, m u r d e r e d their children, raped their w o m e n , n o r have they m a n i p u l a t e d laws and i n s t i t u t i o n s to maintain oppression White people have. By law and by policy w h i t e s have tried to preserve a n o n - e x i s t e n t AngloSaxon purity of b l o o d . T h o s e w h o have studied the subject k n o w that there is no such thing. SO AS IT t u r n s o u t , the e f f o r t s to d e h u m a n i z e people of color have f o r t u n a t e l y , tragically some say, resulted in the d e h u m a n i z a tion of whites themselves. T h e victims however, of t h e w h i t e ' s d e h u m a n i z a t i o n process have survived. T h e r e is an overriding tide of awareness taking over people of color in this society and they will not be tricked or s t o p p e d . Freed o m is their d e s t i n a t i o n . If they c a n n o t be free than y o u shall not be free. And t h e y are well aware t h a t their quest f o r self-determination will possibly bring, if it hasn't already, the resemblance of a white police state. H O W E V E R , T H E Y A R E faced with the task of doing that which must be d o n e and o d d s are of n o importance. As H. R a p said " F — i t , f r e e d o m or d e a t h . " So the main p r o b l e m facing people of color in t h e United States, and for that m a t t e r people of color t h r o u g h o u t the world, is w h a t to d o with the white man - the man w h o at one time stifled the whole of h u m a n i t y . How can he be m a d e m o r e human? P E O P L E O F C O L O R in this society are on the move. Their end goal is to get w h a t you have, or w h a t y o u t o o k f r o m t h e m . So I say, not in hate, nor in love, w h a t will be d o n e shall be d o n e . Patience can no longer be considered a virtue and people of color are growing m o r e i m p a t i e n t each day. Y o u ' d best change y o u r ways or y o u r w a y s shall be changed. You have been w a r n e d .

the Left is that t h e y have never b e e n able to c r e a t e p r i o r i t i e s i n d e p e n d e n t of political c h a n g e s in t h e w e a t h e r . T h e y have wandered off in every direction a t t e m p t i n g t o c o u n t e r a c t an impossible n u m b e r of p r o b l e m s . P r i o r i t i e s were set. T h e elimination of racism, p e a c e a n d an e n d to p o v e r t y have a l w a y s b e e n the long range goals of the L e f t . Yet, with that in m i n d , it is d i f f i c u l t t o u n d e r s t a n d the lack of s u p p o r t f o r Angela Davis, t h e b o m b i n g s in Wisconsin and the a b s e n c e of c o m m i t m e n t to e l i m i n a t e f e d e r a l poverty program bureaucracy. THE USE OF v i o l e n c e has o n l y been r e s p o n s i b l e f o r f u r t h e r political r e p r e s s i o n . T h e Left a p p e a r s t o be c a u g h t u p in a q u i x o t i c vision of r a d i c a l i s m . A small f r a c t i o n of the "sand-box revolutionaries" have p u t d o w n their pails and shovels and p i c k e d up t h e i r f u s e s and d y n a m i t e . A classic e x a m p l e of t h e result has b e e n t h e White P a n t h e r P a r t y . T h e i r p r o g r a m at v a r i o u s t i m e s has included, " F in the s t r e e t s , " " s m o k i n g grass e v e r y w h e r e , " and the p r o m o t i o n of rock as the n a t i o n a l art f o r m ; all, of c o u r s e , highly laudable, radical goals. A f t e r all. if s o m e o n e is s t o n e d , sexually s a t u r a t e d , and listening to r o c k m u s i c , h o w can he be b o t h e r e d b y p o v e r t y , war and racism ? THE IRONY IS o b v i o u s . T h e victims of p o v e r t y , war a n d racism receive little comfort. Their "allies", however, would appear to be q u i t e c o n t e n t . A f t e r all.

hedonism has a l w a y s b e e n a political d o c t r i n e . Satisfied p e o p l e d o n ' t m a k e t r o u b l e . G i v e n the p l e a s u r e s of sex, d r u g s and music, o n e is well-armed to c o m b a t a c u l t u r e based on sex, b o o z e and L a w r e n c e Welk. With this highly m e a n i n g f u l p l a t f o r m , why s h o u l d t h e Left resort t o v i o l e n c e ? Well, hell, why n o t ? We are a g e n e r a t i o n raised t o wage ( p l a y ? ) war against armies, I n d i a n s a n d Martians w i t h t w o heads. It s e e m s almost u n f a i r t o ask us t o a b a n d o n o u r g a m e s w h e n we get older. How can you be R o h m H o o d if y o u c a n ' t play with y o u r how".' What f u n is it to be a radical if y o u c a n ' t blow up b u i l d i n g s ? YET, WHAT ABOUT the p e o p l e ? H o w m u c h has t h e Left improved the people's position? I am afraid t h e answer is, it h a s n ' t . In t h e e n d ( a n d I t h i n k t h e e n d of this b r a n c h of t h e New Left is i m m i n e n t ) t h e violent r e v o l u t i o n aries will have a c c o m p l i s h e d only d e s t r u c t i o n . T h e political achievements have been earned by n o n - v i o l e n c e , and the p r o b l e m s r e m a i n . T h e / s y s t e m seems t o have s w a l l o w e d t h e L e f t . P e r h a p s political a c t i o n is truly d e t e r m i n e d by the w e a t h e r . F o r t h o s e on this c a m p u s and for all c o l l e g e s t u d e n t s it is t i m e tor s o m e clear t h i n k i n g . T h e political p r i o r i t i e s must be evaluated o n c e again. Reality m u s t cast its g l o o m y s h a d o w s o o n ; a n d with the c o m i n g of this s h a d o w the violence of the New L e f t will h o p e f u l l y b e eclipsed.
