Israeli government accepts U.S. proposal
Duke announces new music center
By LIBBY LEWIS
Duke University President Terry
Sanford announced last week the
establishment at Duke University of the
American Music Theater Center, a
company which will produce professional
musicals in Durham and take them on
The center will employ Duke's facilities
and professional talent to produce
musicals, then book the shows in major
theaters around the country.
Richard Adler, a UNC graduate and
the producer of several Broadway shows,
including Pajama Game and Damn
Yankees, will be director and president of
the center. Grace Rohrer, secretary of
cultural resources during former Gov.
James Holshouser's administration, will
serve as manager of the center's campus
operations at Duke.
During the press conference, attended
by Gov. James B. Hunt, Sanford spoke of
the additional benefits that the center
would provide the University other than
the obvious boost to a presently
floundering area of the original musical
As part of Duke's agreement with the
company, professionals associated with
the musicals will lecture Duke students
on their particular fields of discipline.
"Another of those good causes,"
Sanford said, "is one of making money."
The center will be financed privately,
independent of Duke. The $1 million in
initial backing will come from unnamed
private and industrial sources, who will
own one-third of the stock.
Duke will be a stockholder, owning a
one-third interest in the enterprise. The
remaining one-third is to be divided
among the artists and producers involved
in the early stages of the project.
Adler, a former White House
consultant on the arts who founded
UNC's Fine Arts Festival, stressed the
need for "fresh musical theater," not
necessarily in New York.
"We don't want to exclude New York
in our plans." Adler said, "but all over
America there areaudiences wantingnew
musical theater. We will do a show first at
Duke, then tour the U.S. with it, then
perhaps New York, when we feel we're
ready to do that."
Producing musicals in Dnrhiim w ill be
considerably cheaper than producing
them in New York. Adler predicted that a
show which costs $ I million to produce in
New York could be done here for
$700,000. That is 30 per cent less to risk
on original musicals, a risk with which
Adler is familiar. His show Music Is was
one of only three originals produced last
season, and it died an early, painful
Part of the risk, he said. is"the fact that
the New York Times is an extraordinarily
powerful organ in New York theater."
The times are gone, he said, when nine
newspapers published in the Big Apple,
and "if you lost the Times and the Herald
to bad reviews, you could still survive."

No, Mark Almond is not one of the Allman Brothers, but is in fact two
individuals, Jon Mark, left, and Johnny Almond, who make up the
Mark Almond Band. Sponsored by the Carolina Union, Mark and Almond
will perform at 8 p.m. on Sept. 28 at Memorial Hall. General admission is $3.
The two have a common musical interest in blues which was first realized in
John Mayall's "Turning Point" group. Mark has worked closely with
Marianne Faithful and the Rolling Stones. Johnny Almond has won an
impressive reputation as a multifaceted-session musician. His saxophone
work spiced the recordings of nearly every major English band of the period.
The duo blend their unique talents, incorporating a special blend of jazz
sounds with pop overtones.

JERUSALEM Israel, softening its
stance on the structure and composition of
Arab representation at a renewed Geneva
Middle East peace conference, Sunday
accepted a U.S. proposal to reconvene the
There was no immediate response from
any Arab countries to the Israeli decision.
The U.S. proposal, considered face saving
for both Israel and the Arabs, provides for a
unified Arab delegation at the opening
session of the talks and participation by the
Palestinians so long as they are not known
members of the Palestine Liberation
Although the government of Prime
Minister Menahem Begin bowed to the
American initiative, it insisted it would not
negotiate with the Palestinians separately
only if they were " part of a Jordanian
Acceptance of the U.S. proposal marked a
turnabout in Israeli policy because the Begin
government previously opposed a unified
Arab delegation in favor of negotiating with
Egypt, Syria and Jordan separately and
refused to sit with the Pl.O.
. Palestinian guerrillas and Christian
rightists battling in the mountains near the
Israeli border said Sunday they had agreed
on a cease-fire arranged by the United
States. Israel admitted its troops crossed the
border and said the guerrillas rocketed a
Jewish frontier town.
The guerrillas, who earlier in the day killed
a number of Christian civilians with a
barrage of mortar shells fired from their
stronghold in a 12th-century Crusader
castle, announced. "Palestinian forces

A salvo of the Palestinians' Soviet-made
Katyusha rockets slammed into the Israeli
coastal town of Nahariya after the deadline,
however, in the second guerrilla attack on an
Israeli settlement of the day.
Economic policy criticized
WASHINGTON - The Joint Economic
Committee of Congress charged Sunday the
government has put the burden of
controlling inflation on the poor, minorities,
teen-agers and the aged.
In its annual mid-year report, the
committee said they are the "principal
victims" of present economic policies
designed to hold down inflation by setting
governmental spending and money supply
levels so as to restrict total demand.
The result, the report said, is to reduce
production and increase unemployment.
And unemployment, the committee said,
hits the economically weakest groups
hardest, resulting, for example, in an 18 per
cent unemployment rate among teen-agers,
40 per cent among black teen-agers.
