EXPOSE NO. 2
iiiiving had great success In my
expose of pornography in children’s
literature, I now have the opportun
ity to expose a monsterous Communist
plot to take over this country with
out firing a shot. I have in my
possession evidence that within the
next two weeks a communist country
in the extreme Northern hemisphere
will secretly smuggle a man into
this country by a peculiar animal-
powered space craft. He will immed
iately go about corrupting' the minds
of our children by distributing mat
erial wealth to all according to
their wants rather than to their
needs. He will require no exchange
of money but it is reported that he
will expect a certain behavior from
the children in return for these
OFFICIALS OVER FORTY
With long hair it would appear to you
that I don't care
But my friend - there is
something you can't see
And that's what I feel—
Inside of me
You make a war for me to fight
while you discuss it carefully-
at dinner - by candlelight - wow -
Men over 40, if you only saw
if you could be drafted
there would be no war
I care a lot
But not for the trouble you have
So my firend,
the next time you see long hair
don't dispair - soon he'll help
you win a war
While the big man over 40 sits
behind a closed door.

IS THE THEATRE REALLY DEAD?
(oon’t from page 3)
into drama. A quick glance from a
passing stranger yields a character.
The whole concept of theatre evolves
from simple truths that are blown up
until they can no longer cower in
the cobwebs of obscurity by virtue
of their size. Or the reverse ap
proach might be considered: a colos
sal event can be shrunk to the point
where its insignificance is exploit
So Broadway can stick to its
elaborate musical inanities and high
schools can continue with their in
nocent attempts at cultural events.
But the young, impulsive, impetuous
imps of Now will take their desper
ate communication to cellar coffee
houses, church attics. Cafe LaMamas.
As long as there are Leonard Melfis
and Ellen Stewarts and Vittorio
Gianninis, theatre will have a long
and productive life.

This man can be immediately
recognized by his communistic red
suit and by a large white beard that
makes him look much like Karl Marx
He is known to go about shouting Ho,
Ho, Ho, an obvious indication o£«hls
support for Ho Chi Minh. He is of
ten called St. Nick—no doubt an ef
fort to diefy Nicholai Lenin,
It is the duty of every Ameri
can to protect his home and property
by immeditely arming against this
dangerous aggressor. He should be
declared an outlaw, an enemy of the
people, and shot on sight. America!

CHRISTMAS AND KURT YAGHIJIAN
(con 't from pg. 2)
"Where, where," I asked, anxious to see him. I must have been
looking for a twelve year old boy, for when I saw Kurt, grown, dark,
with long hair, spitting out intensity that did not fit Amahl's naivete
I couldn't accept it. I had to be shown proof it was the same boy. Of
course, I was convinced. Since then I have wanted to go up to Kurt and
tell him how much I have always enjoyed him as Amahl. But I didn't
know what to say. Besides, I have always felt foolish introducing my
self to strangers, so when I see Kurt now, during this Christmas season
I see two people, Kurt Yaghijian, who studies acting, and buried some
where inside him, Amahl, like the ghost of some Christmas past.
This year, when I go home to Syracuse, I shall look for "Amahl"
once again, but just in case, I will also bring the recording.
And to Kurt, as well as to Mr. Menotti and the mother and the
kings I can only repeat the words of the three kings when they are pre
sented with the simple gifts from the shepherds.
Thank you, thank you.
Thank you kindly.
Thank you, thank you
Thank you kindly, too.
Ah, "Emily, Emily,
I can hardly wait.
