of her works. She was very im

vited Mr. Bayes to prepare

ner, with an entire Issue being
devoted to them.

REJOICE 1 Ron Bayes has got
It together.
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

Worship And Other Relevant Things

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.
If you’re a Holy Roller and
you can’t worship through a
light show, come and do your

else to do It. Or, if your’re one
of those leftist, hippy-freak ra
dicals that gets tired of the
CRAP, come do aservlcethat’s
not crap. And If you’re one of
those people who has a lot of
opinions, but has no time to do
anything about them, at least
tell us what you’d like to see
done. There wUl be a meeting
Thursday the 24th at 10:00a.m.
In the conference room of the
Student Center — EVERYONE
Is welcome to come and sound
off. If you have Ideas, but don’t
want to Join the group, talk to
JIU Robinson (258), Ellen Tis
dale (288), Susie Moyers (324),
Jon Graham (283), or Annette
Laut>er (286).
And, speaking of Christian
things, it’s about the Ministry
Committee. It has fantastic po
tential. Lord knows there are
a gadzUllcffl or two things on
campus that SOMEBODY should
worry about. 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.
