On World Wide Communion Sunday HOPE CHURCH invites you to celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion at one of three services of corporate worship. Th# services are at 8:00 a.m. (for those who wish to kneel while receiving the elements). at 9:30 a.m. at 11:00 a.m. 4

A Communion thought: "The good news of God is that you are invited to meet Him. That's why the Bible reads like a strange book. The world of the Bible is a place of meeting. It isn't an empty world like ours, where big is big and little is little and 90 per cent of almost everything is nothing. It's a place where you are forever running into an infinite mind and coming upon the yearning of an eternal heart."

anchor review: 'Free Fall'

Golding Book Discusses M a n s Fall •

nor f o r t u n a t e nor ill-advised, but good or e v i l . "

(Editor's Note: Dr. A. J a m e s Prins of the English faculty was involved in a study of contemporary novelists this summer at the University of London.

Dr.

Prins' selection of William Golding's " F r e e F a l l " is the first in the anchor's publication of literary, musical and theatrical reviews by faculty and students for the year.)

•m

m h by Dr. A. J a m e s Prins Over a period of ten y e a r s William Golding h a s written five novels: " L o r d of the F l i e s " (19541, " T h e I n h e r i t o r s " f 19551, " P i n c h e r M a r t i n " (1955), " F r e e F a l l " (1959), and " T h e S p i r e " (19(>4>. "I think of m y s e l f . " Golding has said, " a s a religious m a n . " He likes to h a v e his r e a d e r s r e g a r d him a s a m a k e r of m y t h s — of " s o m e t h i n g which c o m e s out f r o m the roots of things in the a n c i e n t s e n s e of being the key to e x i s t e n c e , t h e whole m e a n i n g of life and experience as a w h o l e . " " F r e e F a l l " is the m y t h of p a r a d i s e lost, the Fall of Man. It is the story of S a m m y Mountjoy, who rises f r o m the slum of Rotten Row to b e c o m e a successful artist and find his B e a t r i c e on P a r a d i s e Hill. Ironically. S a m m y ' s mount of joy is a Mons V e n e r i s : his rise to his B e a t r i c e on P a r a d i s e Hill is a fall into the consciousness of guilt. S a m m y tells his own story. He b e g i n s with a question; When did I lose my freedom? For once I was free. I had power to choose. The mechanics of cause and effect is statistical probability, yet surely s o m e t i m e s we operate below or beyond that threshold. The novel is the r e t r o s p e c t i v e s e a r c h in S a m m y ' s mind for the a n s w e r to that question " W h e n did I lose m y f r e e d o m ' ' " By loss of f r e e d o m S a m m y m e a n s a purely p r i v a t e thing. He m e a n s to ask. at what point in his life did he m a k e the choice to follow self at whate v e r cost? — the cost being the s e n s e of guilt that now blocks the f r e e d o m of the self. That point is S a m m y ' s f r e e fall: his choice for f r e e d o m of the self that cost his f r e e d o m of the self b e c a u s e of the s e n s e of guilt t h a t checked his e x p a n d i n g ego THE GUILT-RIDDEN SAMMY goes back over the course of his life, looking for the {wmt of fall. Tied to the retrospective t e c h n i q u e of the novel is the idea that S a m m y cannot know when he fell until aft«-r he has fallen; insight into the beginning can only c o m e with insight into the e n d . He quickly d i s m i s s e s the poverty of his b a c k g r o u n d , his illegitimate birth, his boyhood b l a s p h e m y against the C h u r c h . S a m m y w a s essentially innocent t h e n , his early- sins were not t h e wickedness of self-will. He s a y s .

when a p r i s o n e r of w a r in G e r m a n y , his dishonesties—but t h e s e w e r e not c a u s e s ; they- w e r e e f f e c t s , the p a t t e r n s e s t a b lished by a m a n a l r e a d y i r r e v o c a b l y fallen. W H E R E T H E N did h e lose his f r e e d o m 9 Where w a s the point of fall? Samm y finally localises it in the d e l i b e r a t e decision to bend the will of the virginal Beatrice to his own s e n s u a l p l e a s u r e , to mount his own joy at the e x p e n s e of a n o t h e r p e r s o n , to s t a k e e \ e r y t h i n g on the s a t i s f a c t i o n of his pride, his sensual ego. B e a t r i c e Ilor, B e a t r i c e for I; that is. for S a m m y M o u n t j o y : I said in the hot air what was important to me . . . her obedience, and for all time my protection of her; and for the pain she had caused m e , her utter abjection this side death. Here is the point of fall, w h e r e f r e e dom w a s lost — not t h e seduction itself. but S a m m y ' s decision to c o n q u e r another self for his own. And B e a t r i c e ' s " u t t e r a bje c tion this side d e a t h " is exactly the c o n s e q u e n c e of S a m m y ' s choice for self, plus the cost to Sammy. the s e n s e of guilt that c h e c k s his pride, r e s t r i c t s his f r e e d o m .

B u t w h e n such p e o p l e have e v e r y t h i n g necessary ior t r e m e n d o u s success a n d yet settle for relatively meager results because they c a n ' t see the forest for t h e trees, the results are tragic.

For e x a m p l e , in the past the S t u d e n t Senate has o f t e n missed the c h a n c e to s t a n d u p as the voice of the s t u d e n t body, a n d to press for action on really i m p o r t a n t a n d vital issues. In a word, senates of past years have for the most p a r t have spent so m u c h time w o r k i n g on largely social c o m m i t t e e s t h a t they h a v e n ' t been able t o sec the possibilities for concrete a n d vigorous action on the pressing c a m p u s problems.

Just before harvest time, Raph suffered a slipped disc and w a s unable to bend over—a t r a g i c situation f o r a g l e a n e r , since the ability to bend over is the f i r s t requisite to s u c c e s s f u l gleaning. R a p h ' s n e i g h b o r s decided to help h i m out.

T h e facts are that in past years the SCA has a n n u a l l y managed to interest a b o u t 50 of the college's 1600 stud e n t s i n t o active p a r t i c i p a t i o n in t h e group's programs. If the SCA is willing t o m a k e an all out effort to discover a n d to fill t h e real religious needs of the e n t i r e s t u d e n t b o d y , instead of only offering w h a t it t h i n k s s t u d e n t s at H o p e o u g h t to w a n t (as it seems to have in the past), the SCA can fulfill its stated p u r p o s e . If the SCA again this year refuses to push for p r o g r a m s d e a l i n g with t h e p a r t i c u l a r problems of college s t u d e n t s in a m o d e r n world, 1500 s t u d e n t s will c o n t i n u e t o care less and less. T h i s is the year for seeing the big problems, t h e big issues, t h e c o m p l e t e picture. If the s t u d e n t s of H o p e College will reach for the biggest possibility, the c a m p u s will never be the s a m e again.
