Unlimited cokes and seconds on meat
are gone from the cafeteria. One of two
school Xerox machines have been
removed from active use. Telephones in
faculty lounges and some school offices
have been taken out. Future purchases
such as language tapes and an adding
machine have been put off. Plans for
administration offices in the Workplace
have had to be scratched — at least for
One reason is inflation. The school, like
the rest of the country, is finding out that
money isn’t going as far this year as it
Another reason is a $35,000 deficit from
last year’s budget which had to be
compensated for in this year’s budget.
Both reasons have made budget making
a more frustrating job.

BULLETIN - The result of the quiet
hours referendum was announced Friday
after a student ballot indicated a
majority opinion. Of 183 ballots cast, 112
students voted for quiet hours from 11:00
p.m. to 10:00 a.m., 71 voted for 11:00 p.m.
to 8:30 a.m.
What started with quiet rumors swiftly
spread throughout the campus, until it
was finally introduced to the Student
Council Association. With such a rapid
beginning, the disagreement over quiet
hours reached “crisis level” within two
weeks, forcing the SCA to take
Marshall Thomas, SCA vice-president
and a Design and Production major,
brought the problem to the Council’s
attention at the Sept. 25 meeting. The
main groups involved in discussing the
conflict were practicing instrumentalists
and D&P students.
The controversy exists mainly because
some D&P students, having worked crew
until late at night, object to being
awakened by musicians warming up for
early classes. Some of those who practice
in the dorms who were present at the SCA
meeting argue that it is neces^ry to
start playing early in preparation for
7:45 classes or lessons.
Many music students claim that
because practice rooms are either
unsuitable or unavailable, they are
forced to practice in their rooms.
As a first step, and what was hoped to
be a solution to the problem, the SCA
passed a compromise resolution
extending quiet hours.
The change, however, brought
immediate and widespread
dissatisfaction on the part of Uie

Chorus: Thus, with imagined wing, our
swift plane flies in motion of no less
celerity than that of thought.
Imagine, if you can, 20 American
students, bedraggled, beaten, haggard
and hungry, all sprawling around the
Work, work your thoughts, and therein
see another plane, and on it students,
Play with your thoughts, and in them
behold upon the subway children riding.
Hear the bright voices which doth ardor
give to minds confused.
Follow, follow, grapple your minds to
stemage of these wide-eyed innocents,
and leave your Carolina, as dead
midnight still, guarded with pianists,
dancers and old teachers either past or
not yet arrived to stout and winkles.
For who is he whose head is but
enriched with one inquiring mind that
will not follow these mad and choice-
drawn voyagers to London?
If Shakespeare were ever to read this
pilfered parody, he no doubt would take
several rude turns in his grave. And if he
did, we of the NCSA London Year may be
just lucky enough to be in Stratford-on-
Avon to witness the event.
Hale and hearty after twelve hours of
weary travel via KLM jet, first from
Montreal to Amsterdam and then onto
London, we 20 drama juniors and seniors
finally arrived here at 1:00 p.m. I^ndon

Miss Zablotny:Everything in Theatre
By BRYANT ARRINGTON
Kssay Staff Uejwrter
Mary Beth Zablotny is the first NCSA
student to go from student director to
faculty director. The reason for her
success is a very conscious realization of
what is necessary tQ survive and grow in
“I will always be involved in theatre,”
Miss Zablotny says. “I will direct, act,
stage manage. If I couldn’t get a job
doing anything in theatre, I would write
script.” A total commitment to theatre is
the feeling one gets talking with Miss
Miss Zablotny came to NCSA from the
Cleveland Playhouse in 1970 to be an
actress. She became known as a reliable
actress, but was not content to only act.
“I started stage managing, but since I
didn’t know what I was doing, I did some
ithings that hadn’t been done before. I
arranged with the cafeteria to pick up the
cast and crew’s dinner while they were in
rehearsals at Summit School. They had
paid for their food and I didn’t think it
fair that they should have to eat out. I
always think of food and those kinds of
things,” she said.
