THE RISE A fl D
THE T H
The rather surprising and anti-
climatic resignation of M. de Gaulle
has met with the general approval of
the American people. School child
ren throughout the country cheered,
knowing full-well that "Big G" was
clearly one of the bad guys; T. V.
commedians joked of de Gaulle's abil
ity to walk on water (I really never
believed it until I saw it); and
bankers turned white (their usual
color is green) at thoughts of new
runs on the dollar and the mark.
But I liked Charles de Bualle.
First, because he understood the
French people — their political in
stability, their love of the grand
hero. He perceived more than most
statesmen that one need not be com
pletely pro -or anti-U.S. By taking
stands that varied in popularity in
this country, de Gaulle produced a
diplomacy that gave a smaller coun
try someone to turn to if it were
not interested in becoming a neo-
imperialistic satellite of the U. S.
or Russia. He provided that little
uncertainty that stimulates interna
tional diplomacy, and by his friend
ly gestures toward Russia and China
brought them a little closer to an
understanding of European ways and a
little less fearful of them.
Koner and Duncan Noble for modern
dance, and Gyula Pandi for character
dance. Visiting faculty and guest
teachers will also be here.
The summer session of the drama
division is designed to be of inter
est to high school students with
some stage experience in school.
Instruction will be given in
speech, movement, mime and acting
technique. The program will be sup
plemented by rehearsals and presen
tations of workshop demonstrations.

Pollock, acting dean; Dolores Ferra
ro acting technique; Leslie Hunt,
speech; Robert Murray, acting tech
nique and movement, and Bert Houle
of New York, visiting artist in re
sidence, who will teach mime.
The music division will provide
intensive courses of study in piano
and voice. Private lessons and mas
ter classes will be an integral part
of the program.
Other courses include litera
ture and materials, which is primar
ily a lecture course with specific
assignments given to students ac
cording to their level of proficien
cy, and history of music, a survey
course with specific emphasis cn se
lected periods of musical history.
Faculty includes Louis A. Men-
nini, dean; Irwin Freundlich,Clifton
Matthews and Marjorie Mitchell for
piano, and Norman Farrow for voice.
Phillipe Buhler will teach the lec
: R D O^ARLES DE GAULLE
But most of all I liked de
Gaulle because of the inspiration he
provided to the underground during
WWII. I remember that picture of de
Gaulle as he led his followers down
the Champs Elysees while Nazi colla
borators were still shooting in the
streets. I remember the way he led
children of the Fifth Republic in
singing the "Marseillaise." But
then the good a person did 25 years
ago doesn't always live after them.
