When NCSA opened its doors in
1965, it did so on property that
belonged to the local school board
and was leased to NCSA for $1.00
a year. When the two sets of
dormitories and the Student
Commons were built, NCSA
bought the land on which they
were located from the School
Board in a public auction, which
the law requires when publicly-
owned land is sold. Fortunately,
no one bid against NCSA in those
Then, during the 1969
Legislature, $492,000 was
authorized for the renovation of

buildings. But State money
cannot be spent on buildings that
do no belong to the State, so the
money has been held in Raleigh
while theatre-goers and students
have sweltered in an un-
airconditioned gymnasium. The

negotiate the sale of the

the difference. The property on

Shortage of infirmary per

various NCSA committees, in

Window,” a masterful lonely
lonesome song of departure
(“Her and her boyfriend went to
California”) and plans that don’t
include the singer. Tlie most
revealing lines end the song:
“Build me a cabin in Utah-marry
me a wife, catch rainbow trout-
have a bunch of kids who call me .
. . Pa- that must be what it’s all
about.” At age thirty, with a
lifetime already behind him,
Dylan finally finds value in the
most basic of desires. Tliat must
be what it’s all about.
“Three Angels” is spoken with
heavy country inflection ( how
many voices does Dylan have?).
It’s simple imagery might pass
you by, but listen again. A
striking parable. “Father of
Night” concludes the LP, a
prayer with great rolling piano
(Dylan) and a swooning chorus.
Dylan’s religious sequal to
“Frankie Lee and Judas Priest.”
New Morning is Dylan’s finest
work since . . . well, since Self
Protrait. His understanding of
rural America is utterly true and
the songs are pure and un
cluttered attempts to find
meaning, not answers. Tliey deal
with realities, not nostalgia,
because Dylan has been faithful
to his own terse artistic intuition.
Once more. Bob Dylan has
brought it all back home.
Concerts; Sorry we missed the
Chicago gig in Greensboro
yesterday, but it didn’t come to
our attention until way too late.
Ah, well . . . Otherwise, Blood,
Sweat & Tears, far-out heavy big
band and all that, will be in
Raleigh, November 13, at Dorton
Arena. Tickets are outrageous;
$6.50 for the best seats (so we
hear). As for Crosby, Stills, etc.,
etc., you might as well forget
about seeing them for awhile.
They’ve cancelled all tours 'til
summer. Apart from that. Young
is doing the coffee-house circuit,
which is kinda nice, and he’s
supposed to be in Washington,
D.C. sometime around Christ
mas. C, S &N are off doing their
own things and there’s no telling
what will happen. But all this is
subject to change ’cause all those
guys are nuts. Once again, we
hear that ‘The Who’ are coming,
ttiis time to Chapel Hill ... So
what else is new? Another nasty
rumor has that ole’ Bobby
Dylan’s hitting the road again. I
guess only he knows. Anyway,
that’s all we know.
An original television drama
featuring students from the N.C.
School of the Arts and Carolina
Playmakers was presented on
Thursday, November 5, at 8:30

causes his dowfall. Linda Eiarp of
UNC, plays Theresa, his girl
friend, the pivot in a love triangle
which forms when the poet
arrives in town.
Malcolm Groome, a UNC
senior in drama, plays Don
Picaro, the poet. Groome just
finished a summer playing
Dionysis in a rock musical,
“Dionysis Wants You,” based on
“The Bacchae,” at the Folger
Shakespeare Library in
Washington, D.C. He is currently
playing Henry David Thoreau in

Night Thoreau l^nt In Jail,”

roles as Cocky in “The Roar Of

Watch out united grits of
Winston-Salem! There is an
undercover freak working amidst
the well-organized business
world at the Garment Care
Center. Somehow a well
germ has infiltrated the system.
While waiting behind three
automobiles occupied by grits, I
counted my change for the day-
cleaners. No leaflets of any
subversive literature were
distributed until my turn arrived.
While receiving my laundry, the
man looked around suspiciously

He snuck inside and returned
bearing two car decals. He thrust
them into my hand and I noticed
one said “Peace” and the other
had a dove and said “A Qeaner
World”. He leaned over quickly
and whispered: “Let’s fight it
I pulled up but waited to see
what he would do with the grit car
behind us. Nothing was said and
no leaflets were given. We have
