Monday Night in the
Arts gets in on the act
with the opening of an
art exhibit of some 24
black and v^ite drawings
billed "The City: German
Caricatures." On loan
from the Goethe Institute
in Atlanta, the sketches
were done in 1897 to 1985
by architects, cartoon
ists, graphic designers,
and illustrators in West
Germany. The exhibit
opens at 7 p.m. Monday

The message is you are
nobody if you are not
white. This is a heresy
worthy of international
repudiation and harsh
punitive measures.
Laws after laws are
passed by the South Af
rican regime to reinforce
their its power and pri-
viledges. People are re
settled according to
their races. Peoples'
private lives are regula
ted by laws v^ich make it
a serious crime to date
or marry across the
color-bar, living togeth
er as different races,
riding in the same public
transport, going to the
same school, restaurant
or theatre. Although

music faculty will per

Bach, Beethoven, Schu

Strauss and Hindemith.
On Thursday and Fri
day, the St. Andrews'
Highland Players perform
the play "The Deadly
Game." An adaptation of
the novel "Trapps," by
Friedrich Duerrenmatt,
the play is about three
retired lawyers on a re
mote mountain who amuse
themselves with prosecu
ting a stranger who drops

the 8 p.m. productions

The week concludes on

Oktoberfest," featuring

laws have been scraped,
the most fundamental ones
still stinks in the South
African statutes books.
The cost of putting these
laws into practice is un
thinkable, both economic
ally and in the misery
they create. Thousands
of people die in opposi
tion to i^rtheid, some
are exiled while many
languish in the regimes'
horrendous jails.
Today the sad story
is that not only Nelson
Mandela and his comrades
are in jail (they have
been jailed for life 25
years ago), but also
about 8 000 little child
ren have been detained
without charge. Most are
said to be 'a threat to
the state'; v^at an al
legation for an 8 year
old kid. Imagine if it

from London University.
However it is disclosed
that Robertson actually
only took an art course
there one spring semester
before he graduated.
Would any of you people
out there who studies du
ring winter term at the
University of St. Andrews
graduated? Let us hope
not. Robertson also con
tends that he has had ten
years of formal educa
tion. If that is so,
then why tell a lie about
graduating from London
University? He obviously
feels that an American
education is not good
enough for him. There
fore, is Pat Robertson a
true patriot or is he
willing to sell his
country out to a one se
mester art course at
London University? It
sure does not sound like
anyone that I would want
leading my country.
My last comment on
the subject is this: Pat
Robertson has joined the
lifestyles of the hypo
critical and the scanda
lous. His comrades are
the crafty and very igno
rant Joseph Biden, Gary
Hart, Admiral John Poin
dexter, Oliver North, and
yes, your favorites and
mine...Jim and Tammy Bak-
ker. Will someone please
stop the madness; this is
getting ridiculous!

sister, how would you
feel?
Ironically the jails
that are supposed to
quell down the quest for
freedom are vigorously
fanning the fires for
Liberation. The non
violence strategies em
ployed by both Chief Al
bert Lutuli (the 1961 No
bel Peace Laureate) and
Archbishop Desmond Tutu
(the 1984 Nobel Peace
Laureate) are rapidly
losing ground. The mili
tant youth, seeing that
all legitimate avenues
for peaceful resolution
are closed, is swiftly
turning to the worst vio
lent means yet practiced
in this century. The
question remains, can a
peaceful resolution ever
be reached? We will look
into that in our next
issue. Tataa!

U.S. investors by 1981
made twice the rate of
return on their profits
from investments in the
developing coiintries than
in the industrial coun
tries (22.5 to 11.5 per
cent). Nevertheless, de
veloping coiantries suffer
from trade tariffs and
quotas designed to keep
out their products from
competition in the "open"
U.S. market. Though U.S.
aid helped establish a
cotton glove manufactur
ing plant in a Latin Am
erican country, it later
placed a quota of 20,000
pair, jamming the oppor
tunity for that comtry
to realize substantial
profits. Now, North Am
ericans pay more money
for their gloves. South
Americans still go hung
ry, and American busi
nesspeople are able to
postpone the restructur
ing necessary for a mo
dern economy. The consen
sus among most economists
is that in the long run,
protectionism hurts ev
eryone. With our votes,
we should vote against
protectionist candidates.
No matter how many
cans of food we pile up
in Belk Center, we will
not make as positive an
impact as we can with our
citizenship. We can vote
and we can write letters.
Bread for the World (BFW)
executive director Arthur
Simon illustrated the po
wer of politics by point
ing out that in the face
of a threatened $15 mil
lion cutback in U.S. con
tributions to UNICEF in
1982, rapid mobilization
of BFW members in key
states probably swayed
Congress to preserve
funding, an action v^ich
dwarfed the efforts of
hundreds of thousands of
citizens v^o raised $2.2
million for UNICEF in a
later fund drive.
A Bread for the World
club meets on campus ev
ery two weeks or so to
organize legislative ac
tion we can take. The
next meeting is Tuesday
at 10:00 in the Medita
tion Room.
