raHQN I Hb CAMPUS'
Ihis year one of the major topics
of discussion among students at NCSA
has been school atmosphere and the rela
tionship of student to student, teacher
to student, artist to artist. Those of
us who made it back for our second year
remember the problems of those first
months in 1965; the absurd quantity and
quality of the rules, the many frustra
tions on the part of bewildered students
faculty, and the general ’'guinea
pig” feeling as we experimented with the
feasibility of the school.
The rules are. mostly gone now, and
the basic experiment is over and suc
cessful. So what's the problem?
Where is the life and spirit I re
member so well from last year? The
spirit that produced descotheques on a
few days’ notice? That produced num
erous extra-curricular ensemble groups
and a Friday night concert every week?
Where is the spirit that made a state
of depression last a few hours instead
of a few weeks? That gave one the abi
lity to say ''let's do it" instead of
"I've got to much to do"?
Yes, there is death on the campus.
The only trouble is the casualties

president of the School of the
Arts, announced that the student
orchestra will present a concert

also attend some of the classes,
including a ballet class, with
the idea of actually surveying
teaching techniques being used at
the school," he said. Princess
Irene is a student of piano.
Joseph Smith will be the
student soloist for the orchestra
"The princess has also made
it clear that she is visiting the
city as an individual and not as
a representative (con't p. 2)
