The Daily Tar Heel
Aristophanes' "The Birch." the
Carolina Playmakers initial production of
the season, r an ambitious flight of fan;y
a bird's eye view of man and the god,
which is both solidly funny, thanks to an
updated scnpt and some fir.-.- corn-i.
performances and, for the nv.t part.
There are, to be sure, some ineffectual
points in the conception of this Fore'.t
Theatre production. For example,
contemporary recordings (Mark Lindsay's
"Silver Bird" and Joe South's "B.rds of a
Feather" among others), used to
supposedly update the milieu of the 414
B.C. original, add an uncomfortable
i element to the show's
inventive -j-mohtre. And at time James

"If anybody should know cf a nice

"Birds get around."
Thanks to Pithetaerus' resourceful
rhetoric, the two meet the King, work
themselves into the confidence of their
fine-feathered friends, and formulate a
plan to not only retain residence in the
bird realm but also to organize the Birds
into a force capable of seizing "the power
of the universe." The Birds may
accomplish this, says Pithetaerus. by

j approves funds
for draft counseling
by Woody LDoster
Student Legislature (SL) approved
Thursday night a S355 appropriation to
the UNC Draft Counseling Service, which
had requested S695.
"Certainly we can survive on this
appropriation," said Bruce Layton,
counseling service coordinator. "But
when the draft resumes later this year I'm
afraid we may not be able to give
adequate counseling," he said.
Finance Committee Chairman Robert
Grady reported the bill out of his
committee with a S230 appropriation.
The additional S125 was added to the bill
on the floor of legislature.
"I realize I am taking a rather
unpopular position," Grady said, "but
Student Government IS,
over-appropriated by .iKmi S . ;
Grady said the bill his
reported out calling tor .t
appropriation was "the :
appropriation we have nude n;?u .
found out SG is over-appropriated."
The finance Committee chairman
Student Government's monu
expected lo increase this year b.ju'
over-appropriation. Grady said he h
to know "by the end of the month"
much extra money SG can expevt
Legislator Gerry Cohen,
introduced the bill, said the .omrr

draft bill and the elimination ! ! :
deferments is going to nuke their
even more important," he viid.
