GARBAGE CAN PAGE 4 VOLUME XLIX Student Organizations Begin Self Examination Camus' Play Reviewed BY MIKE KING and SUSAN REES THE JUST ASSASSINS Dana Auditorium A play in five acts by Albert Ca mus, directed by Donald Deagon, presented by the Revelers Clubs of Guilford College with the following cast: Boris (Boria) Annenkov ..

Christo pher Browne The Guard Craig Wiggins Folka Walter Paris Skuratov Joel Ostroff The Grand Duchess Barbara Hagy The play questions the justice of killing for an ideal. A group of terorrists in Moscow wrangle with the problem of tyrannicide. All are bent on killing the Grand Duke in order that Russia may someday be freed from all op pression. How the end is to be accomplished is the main prob lem. Yanek is first confronted by limit to which the killing can be carried. When the Duke is ac companied by two children to the theatre, Yanek fails to throw the bomb, claiming that the sym bol of tyranny only should die. Stepan maintains the children should not have been spared since others are starving all over Russia. Yanek's view prevails and the group decides that in discriminate killing might mis- Kennedy: The Man and The Memory The Man - J. F. K. BY MIKE KING A year has passed. American Heritage is richer, and a mother and her two children have faded from view. To relive those four days here would be too difficult, too personal. Each of us should do that for himself, careful not to mire in sentimentality or retch at the sight of Johnson (despite the clown who concoct ed "LBJ for the USA") com pared to Kennedy. This would be purposeless. I ask that each of us remind himself of the man and what he stood for. Regardless of what people in Mississippi think, President Ken nedy was an American and had' the best interests of the people he represented in mind. He ac cepted the challenge thrust upon our generation and asked the American people to join him in solving its problems. The chal lenge was often distasteful but varied enough to electrify the imagination of a nation tired of a worn war hero. Kennedy was the new generation. He faced the world with a broad sense of history and doubtlessly meant to make his mark on it. The plight of people the world over was a primary concern of his. The Peace Corps and the Alliance for Progress are two examples of his attempts to meet the problem of under-privileged people head on. Civil rights, med ical care for the aged, and space exploration were the most con troversial of his interests, but (Kmlfnritan Published by the Students of the South's Only Quaker College The Assassins—Raiford Bland, Ethelyn French, Chris Browne, Bill Sternburgh, Bob Sharpless. | represent and betray the ideals |of the revolution. Camus' irony is poignant in light of the 193-5 purges that removed the ideal ists from the party. In the end, Yanek is unable to break his bond with humanity. After killing the Duke, he al lows himself to be captured, re fuses pardon, and is hanged. This is his justification to the ideals of the revolution and the Rus sian people for having killed. The production on the whole was effective in conveying the tone and thought of Camus' play. The sometimes wooden stage movements of the cast are com pletely over-shadowed by Ethe lyn French's portrayal of Dora. ft - 'I jk - r' i , % :; : - • ... •••■ *.'>;' : John Fitzgerald Kennedy each reflected the man's desire to make the United States the leader in all areas of human en deavor. The harsh realities of his job must have weighed heavily on the man; but with determined courage and sharp wit, he sought to implement the ideals of his Continued on Page Two GREENSBORO, N. C.—NOVEMBER 28, 1964 Despite the other players, Miss French carried the scene debat ing human love versus ideal love single-handedly and superbly. In the last act, her anxiety concern ing Yanek's death sends a shud der through the audience. Chris Browne plays Yanek capably, and Bill Sternberg turns in an- Dther fine performance, confined only by its brevity. Raiford Bland handles the role of the intense Stepan well but is plagued at times by over-acting. Joel Ostroff, Robert Sharpless, and Barbara Hagy do well in their minor roles. Newcomers Craig Wiggins and Walter Paris perform well in minor parts, also. The Memory - Nov. 22 BY HANK SIEGEL The sun rose over the eastern horizon one Friday morning and greeted November 22, 1963. In Topeka, Kansas a fourth grade school teacher had pre pared a lesson on the meaning of Thanksgiving ... In New York a houshwife was kissing her husband good-bye as he pre pared to go to work in downtown Manhattan ... At a college in Greensboro, North Carolina a football team had just boarded a chartered bus which would take them up to Virginia for Satur day's game . . . Somewhere in South Carolina a young couple was driving South for a Florida honeymoon ... In Washington Speaker of the House John Mc- Cormack prepared for another day at the hub of the govern ment ... At the Los Angeles office of United Press Interna tional a 23 year old copy boy stood by the teletype as it fever ishly clicked out the news of the day. That morning the city of Fort Worth, Texas woke up in ex citement. The President of the United States was in town. For Clinton Hill, special Secret Serv ice agent and Merriman Smith, UPI White House Correspondent, the day would start as an aver age one. The day dawned misty but soon cleared into balmy autumn weather. It would rain the next day. Continued on Page Two Student Legislature, M. S, (~ W. S. C. Take Action Towards Modernization The Guilford College Student Legislature, in an effort to moref carefully control the allotment of Student Activity funds, has made it known that they intend to more strictly enforce a Legislature rule dealing with the Constitutions of campus organizations. The rule states that all campus organizations wishing to receive money from the Student Affairs Board should have a Constitution Traffic Committee The Traffic Committee of the Student Legislature reports that conditions on campus are im proving, but all the problems have not yet been solved. A quick reminder of some of the rules might prevent violations and help cut unnecessary trou ble and expense to a minimum. If one is unable to attend the next session of Traffic court fol lowing a violation, he should send a representative in his place or notify a member of the com mittee beforehand. If one follows this procedure, the double fine for absence will not be in effect. When in doubt about legal parking places, it would be wise to check the college map, issued by the Traffic Committee show ing "no parking" zones. The school will soon be putting up some new signs to remind you of these places. It should be noted, also, that all freshmen and persons on pro bation are not allowed to main tain or operate a car on campus unless he has been given per mission to do so by the Deans or by the chairman of the Traffic Committee. The Committee asks that if anyone has any questions or con cerns, he should feel free to dis cuss them with any member of the Committee. They are inter ested in keeping this campus a safe one. By following the rules, the students can greatly enhance this goal. The members of the Committee are Larry Bock, Bill Wilder, Ralph Stephenson, Ron Jamieson, Nancy Steele, Bill Hurt, Donna Newman, Glen Cook, Bob Hollister, Bill Joye, and Wes Sexton. Honor Board The Honor Board reports that it hopes to complete the study of Guilford's Honor System be gun last year with the question naire answered by a high per centage of our student body. Last year's board heard 29 cases involving 59 persons. The ver dicts handed down were the fol lowing: 14 guilty, 13 not guilty, 1 - insufficient evidence, and 1- no case. These cases involved dishonesty on tests and examina tions, undue collaboration on homework, and plagiarism. An important factor in the cases is that many of them were report ed students. The board tries to hear re ported violations immediately. It strives to protect all individ uals involved by keeping all its work confidential. The most suc cessful year the board could hope for would be one during which it did not function, be cause each student at Guilford accepted the full responsibility of honest work without excep tion. It is possible that this could be such a year? BASKETBALL TAP OFF MEET THE STEELMEN PAGE 3 NUMBER 4 which has been approved by the Student Legislature. Bob Holli ster of the Constitution Commit tee has noted that if an organiza tion wishes to receive money from the Student Affairs Board, it must be recognized as a valid organization. This, of course, means that it must have an ap proved Constitution. If any campus organization wishes to receive money from the Student Affairs Board for next year it must present two copies of the Constitution to Bob Hollister before the budget for next year is drawn up. Gary York, the President of the Men's Student Council, has announced that his organization is in the process of revising its Constitution. It has been noted that the present Constitution is inadequate and unrealistic in several clauses. Doug Schumann, MSC Vice President, has prom ised a number of significant changes as a result of this year's revision. These changes are be ing planned by the MSC's Con stitution Committee and will be brought before the MSC within the next few weeks for debate and possible adoption. Recently the MSC adopted a number of regulations dealing with campus conduct. Among these regulations were the pro hibition of cardigan sweaters at dinner meals, the prohibition of motorcycle riding on school walks, the compulsory registra tion of all refrigerators and tele vision sets at Dean Atwell's of fice, and participation in dorm inspection and fire drills. It is now considered a viola tion of the MSC Code for any male student to have two unsat isfactories for room inspection in one semester. Such a violation will result in an appearance be fore the MSC. ioye's 66 Yd. Touchdown Closes Great Career; Quakers Top E & H r 7-0 BY HANK SIEGEL Emory, Va., Nov. 21 Billy Joye finally did what everyone wanted him to do; he broke away for a touchdown. He did it at a time and in a manner rem iniscent of the legendary Frank Merriwell. This was the last game of his college career. In achieving his feat, Joye scored the only touchdown of the game and probably the most gratifying touchdown of his col lege career. His 66 yard gallop enabled the Quakers to squeak out a 7-0 decision over the Wasps of Emory and Henry. It brought our season record to 4-5, the best season that the Ma roon and Gray have had in years . . . and . . . years. Joyce had always been con sidered a hard luck runner in college. There were many times, this season alone, when he could have broken away for touch- Confirmed on Page Four
