ooze, smoke, noise plane nuisances.'
By STEPHEN J. AUSTIN
Dear Steven: What do you think
about the attempts of various groups
to getting smoking and booze banned
on airplane flights? I'm all for it because
alcohol is against my religion, and I
don't buy the tobacco industry garbage
about another person's smoke not
having an effect on my health. I'd also
like to see some kind of noise ban placed
on businessmen who use those fancy
recorders to dictate notes to their
secretaries. The last time I flew to
Atlanta I got stuck next to a guy who
didn't shut up for a minute. He belonged
in a special section for fools who can't
wait to get back to the office. What
do you think about my ideas?
Dear P.B.: Entitled to your own
opinions, of course. The tobacco
questions are long from being resolved,
but at least you can choose to sit in
a non-smoking section. Regarding the
alcohol, I haven't heard of any move
ment to ban it on flights and certainly
wouldn't support any. I enjoy a cocktail
as 1 cruise along in my aisle seat. Forcing
a person to keep his mouth shut because
you don't like what's coming out of it?
C'mon, give me a break. It sounds like
you're ready for your own plane and
some flying lessons. Say hello to Sky
King and Penny.

Rock, pop Miffunse Lalb Theatre, play
By DEANNA RUDDOCK
The combination of live rock 'n' roll and serious drama
is an aspect of Sam Shepard's The Tooth of Crime that
makes it a unique undertaking for the UNC Lab Theatre,
which presents it this weekend.
The production, involving live music from the band Neutral
Field State, deals with the confrontation between the two
worlds of rock music and popular music.
"Tooth of Crime is the synthesis of rock and pop culture
taken to its raw extreme," said director Charles McKinney,
a senior from Fayetteville.
The play, which Shepard wrote in 1972, centers on the
life of Hoss, a man from the old world of rock who has
killed many men to reach the top and now is marked to
die himself. It is a play about fame and cultural images.
It deals with change and the fact that change will occur
no matter how hard one fights it.
McKinney said the nature of the play mandated that the
world of pop come out on top. Still, he said, it is hard
to separate pop music from rock because rock has influenced
it so much.
John Bilich, a junior from Franklin, Ohio, plays Hoss
and said it was difficult to relate to the conscience of a man
who had killed more than 100 people and could still be the
hero of the play. "I'm not a killer," BQich said, "but I have
to relate to a man who kills for lunch."
McKinney said he had changed the character of Crow,
the gypsy from the new world of pop who has come to
kill Hoss. Shepard created a Keith Richards-like image that
McKinney said was outdated by the need for a New Wave
Doug Wagner, a freshman from High Point, plays Crow.
Wagner said Crow was unlike any other character that he
had ever portrayed. "For Crow, his self image is his survival
kit," Wagner said. "He radiates a violent arrogance that he
uses to intimidate his opponent. And for Crow, everyone
is the opponent."
The most challenging aspect of the play was putting the
music together, McKinney said. He said most plays did not
demand music, let alone live music, but that this play had
to have it. Two of Shepard's songs had to be rewritten,
. he said, because the music did not fit the words. Also, because
. the play is being performed in the lab, Mckinney does not
have; the equipment to deal with the technical aspects of
the play the way he would like.
Still, Wagner, who is also musical director for the play,
said the play would involve good music and synthesizers.
"It is going to be hot," he said.
McKinney said the play might appeal only to music lovers,
both of New Wave or older rock 'n' roll. "This is a play
. where youH either like it or youH hate it," McKinney said.
"There's not much in between."
' . The Tooth of Crime will be performed at 4 and 8 p.m.
Sunday and Monday in the UNC Lab Theatre.
