Our writer in residence has published an outstanding book of poetry, "History of the Tur tle I-IV,” which is published by Olivant Press. Ron Bayes spent two years writing the poetry that is in cluded in his book. He has had excellent criticism from all facets of the literary world. Margaret Randall de Mondra- gon has said of Bayes’ book: “What Bayes is doing will prove to be a stepping stone to our future—poetically speaking”. Bayes has made great use of his prosodlal knowledge, and every word evokes an image, scene or feeling. Each word jumps out and hits the reader with a blow of fresh, alive lan guage expounding Americana. A hint of Dr. Carlos Wil liams is seen occasionally. The following quote by Herbert Ho- warth exemplifies Ron Bayes’ message: “These poems and the sound of your voice which they carry and your way of observing many places, in America and Europe, in which they evoke the reader to participate, make me want very much to meet you.” Just as Richard Brautigan, the San Francisco beat poet, connects with the feelings of today, so with Bayes. Bayes makes more use of natural ac cents and rhythms than any other popular poet. Bayes has withheld any comment not im plicit in the scene or Image Itself. An example of Ron Bayes’ realism: Tom Tom Missouri’s son grabbed his brains & away he ran .Chicago, “Chlcaguh! Sklka- gope”& dead In a ditch dead in a ditch dead in a dtlch a concrete ditch.’* Dynamic and real, all there. As Joseph Ferguson, from University of Nevada, said: “There is nothing artificial or superficial about Bayes' poems, what I like most about them. They have confidence.” Ronald Moran, of University of North Carolina, said of Bayes’ new work: “Your poetry cannot be ex amined, evaluated, what-have- you, by the usual methods and criteria. It Is establishing its own rules. . . .you surely wUl have a go at a place in our literary history ... the writing of poetry that Is stylistically prophetic has always been a lonely business. . . There is a great learning behind your poetry as well as sincerity hard to paraphrase but none theless genuine.” Farrago In A New Location With A Newer Direction Farrago opened Its 1970-71 season last Saturday night in the building in Ijack of the In firmary. The entertainment consisted of folk music by Nick Griffin, Rick Morgan , Jeff Coddington, Pierce Barr, and Bruce Stuart, who performed his original "The God Damn Song.” Farrago is a student-opera ted coffeehouse run by Mac Crosswell, Jack (Buddy) Bar- /oilld llKe lO purciiii»c Ulic, ^ Worship And Other Relevant Things thing, or arrange for someoi By Jill Robinson Since everybody Is either in bed Thursday at 10:00 or fran tic with the rat race of dally life, the attempt to worship at this time Is thoroughly frus trated. To alllevlate this si tuation, worship services will be held Wednesday nights at 10:15 (on your way home from the library). The l)est way to provide a service meaningful to a con glomerate of kids Is to let a conglomerate of kids plan or at least help plan the services.

This committee could do anything from making statements to leading marches; from organizing a hot-line to renewing the attempt to break down communication barriers. It’s wide open, and anybody In terested In anything this com mittee could do (which, actually, is anything at all) should get In touch with JIU Foblnsrai (258).

The staff is hopeful that Far rago will be open about every other weekend, with changes in format to include rock bands and bluegrass music. Future plans for Farrago, depending upon the availability of funds. Include affiliation with the coffeehouse circuit, which would enable off-cam pus entertainment to be brought In on a regular basis. Rick Morgan, who’s In charge of entertainment asks that any one Interested in performing at Farrago contact him at ex tension 338. The response to the coffeehouse has been en thusiastic and thanks go to the staff for a really good trip. * Cairn Published And On Sale Now Calm, the St. Andrews li terary magazine, has greeted the new year with much excite ment at the discovery of new writers and artists.
