Associate Editor
Dillard House and its sponsor, the
United Campus Ministry, may come under fire tonight from a committee of the
Presbyterian Synod, the statewide governing body of the Presbyterian Church.
The committee will conduct an annual review of the programs of the United
Campus Ministry which is made up of
the Christian Church-Disciple- s
of Christ,
the United Church of Christ, Presbyterians, United Presbyterians and the
National Lutheran Campus Ministry.


One of those programs Dillard House,
a cooperative living experiment for UK
students has drawn opposition from local Presbyterians as well as members
of other denominations, on the grounds
that it is immoral to have male and
female students living in the same house.

The church sessions (the governing
bodies of the local churches) of four
Lexington churches First Presbyterian,
Second Presbyterian, Hunter Presbyterian
and Maxwell Presbyterian have expressed to the Synod their opposition to

programs of the United Campus Ministry.
Rev. Ed Miller, the Presbyterian minister of the United Campus Ministry
said the controversy was based on "a
lack of understanding." He said the problem was in dealing with communication
with the local churches.
Rev. Miller said he did not expect
any "fireworks" at the meeting. "It's
hard for me to visualize the Synod's
committee putting a stop to any of our
programs. But It's possible that the committee could suggest to our local govern

Brown Theatre Functions As Kentucky Oasis

Kernel AE Editor
The knight of the woeful countenance found an oasis in Kentucky: the Brown Theatre in


Dale Wasserman's musical,
"Man of La Mancha," invaded
the windmills in Kentucky and
struck a professional but not fatal
blow. The musical provides entertainment, enchanting songs, an

interesting story and a professional presentation of the impossible dream.
Jose Ferrer, who also played
the role of Don Quixote on Broadway, brought theatre goers in

this area to a new level, a point
nearing Melville's Great White
Whale. Ferrer evoked tremendous
emotional feeling of a level that
is rarely, if ever, discussed on a
professional basis in Kentucky


Kentuckians usually go to the
theatre and expect to be entertained. But that's usually all
they want. If they are made to
think about something with such
impact as good and evil, they
cringe and feel uncomfortable.
As I was leaving, I heard
these comments:
"I liked the music, but didn't


understand the story."
"I didn't like it. It was too
idealistic. It just didn't make
sense that Don Quixote felt like
that. No, it Just isn't true to
"Oh, that was upsetting. Let's
go get a drink."

"I didn't think anything about
it. What did you think about it?"
The Brown Theatre has scheduled six Broadway hits with
Broadway stars after "Man of La

congratulatory letters and telegrams from ministers, priests,

the network, following the initial
telecast last March.
The program, produced by
Jules Power International Productions and sponsored by the

season's highest rated documentaries throughout the country and
ranked seventh among the top
40 programs of the week it was
aired. It explores the mystery,

is based upon Executive Producer

"The reception has been most

'How Life Begins' will soon be
made available to school systems

joint efforts of the McGraw-Hil- l
Company and the 3M Company,"
said Daniel Wilson, Producer of
the ABC News Special.
Two responses from viewers
sum up the reaction. A fifth
grade student in Nevada wrote:
"The story of reproducing entitled, 'How Life Begins' was
most interesting. We talked about
it in class and the children who

Arms Threshold

The United States now can only injure its own interests if it delays
ratification of the nonproliferation treaty and the opening of talks on
Republican obstruction may make it impossible to rescue the
treaty. But the opening of working level talks with the
Soviet Union to limit offensive and defensive strategic missiles is a decision that lies entirely in the President's hands.
All indications are that Moscow now is as anxious as the United
States to call off the missile race both for security and economic reasons. But that race has entered a critical phase. Deployment at vast
cost of antimissile missiles and revolutionary independently targeted
offensive warheads could take the two superpowers past the point of
no return. "If both sides acquired these systems," warned scientists
at the eighteenth Pugwash Conference held in Nice last week, "step-by-ste-p
disarmament would be extremely difficult, since neither side
could move from its position without passing through a phase of extreme instability."
The United States and the Soviet Union now are at a threshold in
the arms race. There is a stable balance of mutual deterrents. Disarmament measures are practicable. The world can only lose if the
opportunity that now exists to halt the missile race is permitted to
