4The Daily Tar HeelTuesday, March
By KELLY RHODES
Eugene Istomin, renowned
international concert pianist, will
bring his combination of virtuos
ity, poetic insight and aristocratic
style to Memorial Hall tonight as
part of the Carolina Union Per
forming Arts Series.
Istomin has given more than
3,000 concerts in his 45-year career
after debuting with the Leventritt
and Philadelphia Orchestra Youth
Awards at age 17. His talent for
the piano was discovered at the
age of six by Alexander Siloti. He
was accepted to the Curtis Insti
tute at age 12. In 1950 he was the
youngest performer at the first
Prades Festival under the direc
tion of Pablo Casals.
He went on to perform with
almost every leading orchestra in
the world, under such noted
conductors as Leonard Bernstein,
Zubin Mehta, Eugene Ormandy,
Georg Solti, Seiji Ozawa and
Erich Leinsdorf. He is also the
only pianist giving concerts today
with the unique musical expe
rience of having performed with
such legendary conductors as
Szell, Busch, Munch, Krips and
His performances with some of
these conductors are included
among the more than 30 record
ings he has made for Columbia
Records in the past 30 years. Most
recently, the complete piano and
violin sonatas of Beethoven, done
by Istomin and Isaac Stern, was
released on a two-album set in the
Columbia Records Artists Lau
Istomin received a Grammy in
1971 for best chamber music
performance for his recordings of
the complete Beethoven piano
trios with Stern and Leonard
He also was the first American
artist to give concerts in both
Cairo and Tel Aviv after the
signing of the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty. He performed in the
inaugural gala for the president
and at the centennial celebration
of Albert Schweitzer's birth.
The Chapel Hill performance is
part of Istomin's 30-city North
American tour that he will make
over four months. He will be
traveling with his own Steinway
piano and piano technician, which
makes the performances part of a
true recital tour.

Hershaft said the Meatout has four
basic ideas to get across to people.
These are: 1) that consumption of
animal fat and meat has been linked
conclusively with an elevated inci
dence of heart failure, stroke, cancer
and other diseases, 2) the raising of
animals for food wastes foodstuffs
that should be used to feed the world's
hungry people, 3) the raising of
animals for food devastates forests
and other wildlife habitats and dumps
more pollutants into our lakes and

ities combined and 4) the raising of
animals for food on today's "factory
farms" involves cruel treatment of 6

UNCin the '60s:
it was a golden age
for student protest
By ELLEN THORNTON
You are walking to your class
this Tuesday morning. Everyone
is decked out in strange garb: bell
bottom pants, halter tops and
extremely mini miniskirts. You
wonder what's going on when you
spot a Daily Tar Heel stand and
grab a paper. April 22, 1968 .. . '68?
What could be happening? A
remake of "Back to the Future?" Is
it '60s Day and you've forgotten?
Oh well, as Father always said,
those were the days. You know,
when you could really understand
the words to the music, and the
younger generation really cared
about what happened around them.
And, according to Lyle Sitterson,
University Chancellor in 1968, they
really did care. "The big phrase for
students was 'to have a part in mat
ters that concern our lives'," he said.
"Students' main concerns were civil
rights, the Vietnam War and cam
The campus was swamped with
protests against everything from
Martin Luther King's death and the
Vietnam War to the quality of the
DTH and Lenoir's sandwiches. (One
of the picket slogans was "UNC
sandwiches more effective than
napalm.") Students even went so far
as to participate in a nationwide
protest of Vietnam called "withdra
wal from society," a day in which
they boycotted classes and held
"The purpose of a teach-m was to
educate the campus about the mean-
ing of the war, Sitterson said. Stu
dents felt that the government was
not providing a full explanation."
Students so strongly opposed the
government that they wanted to
close down the University because it
was an instrument of the govern
ment, Sitterson said. This did not
happen in 1968, but two years later,
in the aftermath of the tragic shoot
ing of students at Kent State, Uni
versity officials did shut the campus
down. As a result of this, final
exams were optional in the spring of
Another major societal concern
that evoked campus protests was
civil rights. "Racial tensions on cam
pus were epitomized by the plight of
the black food workers," said Thad
Beyle, a political science professor
who taught here in 1968. "The Uni
versity was like the cruel master of a
Theater groups combine
to present 'Our Town'
By STEPHANIE DEAN
Known as "the classic American
play," Thornton Wilder's "Our
Town" will be presented by the North
Carolina Theatre and Peace College
Theatre Department beginning
"It is a very simple play with much
underlying meaning," said Rick
Rottschaefer, producer and designer.
This story is basically about George
and Emily, next-door neighbors, who
fall in love at the turn of the century.
"The play is existential, a celebration
of life and also a look at death,"
ALL ABC PERMITS
WE CAN MEET
A Look Back
plantation, hiring workers at min
imum wage and then firing them
just when they were due a raise."
This passion for protesting carried
over into campus issues such as
women's rights. Prior to 1968,
women had to wear skirts to class,
were not allowed to live off campus
unless they were over 21 and had a
curfew each night. Students were
not allowed to visit in rooms of the
opposite sex at all.
Hundreds of students helped
modify the rules by marching to the
Chancellor's house for coed visita
tion. At the end of the year, girls
could safely wear jeans to class and
enjoy male company on certain
open nights. And women had later
curfews than ever before.
But students' minds were on more
than protests that year. 1968 saw a
great basketball team led by the
University's first black player, Char
lie Scott. The Tar Heels won the
ACC championship and the Eastern
Regional, finishing second in the
nation. In fact, some students were
so happy with their team that they,
along with some alumni, bought a
new Carolina blue Cadillac converti
ble for coach Dean Smith.
Along with basketball, students
enjoyed Jubilee, a spring weekend of
concerts on Polk Place, as well as
Beat Dook weekend and Sigma Chi
Derby Days. Groups such as the
Platters, the Beach Boys and the
Letter men performed in the area.
Students went to all these events
dressed in such fashions as bell
bottom pants and miniskirts. Guys
could often be seen wearing tassel
loafers and alpaca sweaters, while
girls wore peasant blouses or halters.
The 1968 women's handbook helped
incoming freshmen solve fashion
problems: "Skirts and blouses or
simple dresses will equip you for
classes, basketball games, fraternity
parties and movie dates."
The now fashionable freshman
learned quickly to hang out at Y
Court between classes because, as
the DTH put it, that was "where the
Super-Frats and .Studs hang out."
Weil, it just goes to show that
although fashions change and time
goes on, the main concern of most
students is still to have fun during
their college years.
Besides George and Emily, the
audience sees their families and other
townspeople. The stage manager is
viewed as a God-like character,
because he directs the play. "Our
Town" holds an American theme as
well as one of a universality that goes
The two theater groups, the North
Carolina Theatre and the Peace
College Theatre Department, came
together for this production through
the efforts of Rottschaefer and
director J oedy Lister. These two have
worked with both companies and felt
it natural to bring them together.
Rottschaefer feels the cast, which
is made up of both amateurs and
professionals, is "very capable and
competent." He added, "We're doing
the performance as the playwright,
Thornton Wilder, intended. It is very
solid, well-staged and well-executed."
"Our Town" will be performed
nightly in the Browne-McPherson
Recital Hall on the Peace College
campus on March 23-April 2 at 8
p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee on
Sunday, March 27. For ticket infor
mation call 832-2881.
