Tryouts For 'Good Woman' Set Sunds
Final tryouts will be held for the Department
of Theatre Arts production of Bertolt Brecht's
"The Good Woman Of Setzuan" at 2 p.m. next
'
Sunday and 7:30 p.m. next Monday in theCuignol
Theatre of The Fine Arts Builting.
All students are invited to tryout for Department of Theatre Arts productions. "The Good
Woman Of Setzuan" has a cast of 14 males, 9
females, 4 children, and several extras.
"The Good Woman of Setzuan" will be the
final Department of Theatre Arts production of
the year and the opening event of the School of
Fine Arts Festival of the Arts.
"The Good Woman" is a morality play telling
the story of Shen Te, a woman who is deemed
good by three gods seeking to justify human ex- -

istence. In her efforts to remain good she encounters the paradox that one cannot be good
and survive. Brecht has been hailed as the most
remarkable German writer since Kafka, and
reaches the peak of his dramatic powers in this
play, considered by many critics his best.
Raymond Smith, associate professor in the
department, who will direct the production explains the play has been chosen for production
because, "The theme of the Festival of the Arts
is, 'The University: The Patron of the Arts' and
in that context it is the responsibility of the
endowed theatre of the University community to
innovate and find new ways to communicate
and express experence. Brecht has certainly done
this as a writer for the theatre."

Maturity Lacking

The Kernel has recently questioned the maturity of students in
respect to AWS' refusal to abolish
hours for women residents and the
law students' slow adoption of an
honor code. Following the Greek
Week Dance, held Saturday in the
Student Center which suffered extensive damage, we must again
question the maturity of some UK

Things became so rowdy that the

glass in a fire extinguisher compartment, a restroom flooded because of
plugged drains, and six fire alarms
pulled. In addition, there was general disregard for rules prohibiting
drinking on state property and a
riot nearly broke out.

We hope that the time is rapidly
approaching when such childish
elements will be abolished from this
University and we can fully concentrate on business at hand, namely
a mature search for Truth through
an earnest quest for knowledge.

students.
Damage included a broken light

Such actions speak pitifully poor
of a substantial number of University students. At a time in which
the Faculty Senate and mature students are attempting to abolish in
loco parentis restrictions, a number
of students, all too representative,
have shown that their hands must
still be held and that authorities
must still tuck them in bed.

Gym Opening Beneficial
Vice President for Student Affairs Robert Johnson and Chairman of the Physical Education Department Don Cash Seaton are to
be commended for engineering the
reopening of Alumni Gym on weekends.

The athletic facility is now open
for general student use from noon
until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and
from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Sundays. The
gym's closure on weekends had
been a bone of contention among
students who had little chance
to exercise at any other time or
place.

Vice President Johnson
noted, "It's a shame to have the
facility and not make it available
for students." The gym had been
closed weekends because of a lack
of funds, but Johnson made it a
top budget priority.
We hope the University continues to search for ways to provide both indoor and outdoor physical activity. For example, Southeast Community College in Cumberland recently marked off a college parking area to accommodate
volley ball and shuffle board for
the students and the community
when the lot is not in use.

Americans Have Quaint View Of Intelligence
attend international meetings or
to fight penetration didn't
mean they were agents'

Dy C. L. SULZBERGER
Nw York Timet Nwt fttrvlce

neccs-sairl- y

PARIS What our government
calls "the intelligence community" is regarded as sordid by some
embarrassed Americans who still,
to an endearing but impractical
degree, continue to cherish the
innocence of their forefathers.
'To them CIA is a dirty word
and any organization even
touching it is held thereby to be tarnished.
The origin of this attitude
can be traced to our ancestors
who fled the distant outer world,
venerated George Washington's
insistence on avoiding connections abroad, and, through the
isolationist movement, resented a
20th Century policy of intervention. Many Americans still think
foreigners and the devil can be
escaped by hiding.
The CIA and its immediate
predecessors were incubated during the Cold War when Stalinism sought to subvert Europe and
the United States had no organization with which to combat
such efforts. The financing of
certain student, labor union, propaganda, and cultural groups
started in that atmosphere. The
fact that such groups received
funds otherwise not available to

nests.
Some remaining ties from that
Cold War period might w ell shed
such CIA connections. Undoubtedly the thrust toward investigating CIA links with
groups will expose relationships
that may shock innocents still
greatly influenced by our provincial and puritanical heritage.
While OSS veterans were
studying British Intelligence with
a view to creating the CIA, a
special service called the Office
of Political Control or OPC was
non-offici- al

ly

already functioning and using
help to combat Cold
non-offici-

War pressures.
Foreign friends of the American Labor movement helped
fight Communism in trade unions and also garnered informa-

tion for Washington. One particularly useful source was the
international Transport Federation which collected useful Material from Eurpoean train crews,
dock workers and seamen. This
may surprise amny Americans
but should not shock them. It
is naive to support a Central
Intelligence Agency while asking
it not to do its job.
The U.S. government and its

intelligence branches have sometimes intervened in political affairs abroad. They helped supxut
the third force which initiated the
French Fourth Republic. They
worked strongly for Italy's Christian Democrats in the critical
1918 election They worked
against Mossadegh in Iran and
Arbenz in Guatemala but such
acts were scarcely contrary to
U.S. interests.

Nothing is gained by comparing intelligence functions in
our own open society with tliosc
of Russia's closed society. A better standard is the role of intelligence in France and England.
During the Fourth Republic
France's ardently democratic if
mature equivalent of J. Edgar
Hoover casually told a foreigner
his telephones were tapped. This
was no surprise; the Paris Table
D'Ecoutcis audible.
When allied delegations went
to Moscow for the 1917 foreign
ministers meeting, British "diplo-

mats"
included
technicians
armed with equipment to detect
hidden listening devices in their
embas sy a nd French ' ' diplo mat s' '
included youthful White Russians
who could mingle with university students while keeping their
ears open.

We pay, through lots of
productive time by reading the
contents of a newsletter we do
not want to receive.
On the face of it, we appear
to be getting a very bad bargain.

should like an explanation of
what we are getting in return.
The National Student Association may or may not have been
instrumental in spreading the
gospel of humane capitalism, but
as humane capitalists we are entitled to be skeptical. Those international student conferences
at which the CIA wanted to make
the American student's voice resoundwere they really worth a
boost in the payroll withholding
statement?

The National Student Association, it turns out, has been on
the payroll for years. The
Foundation has been
taking a cut of the intelligence
budget. So have the International
Marketing Institute, the American Society of African Culture,
the American Friends of the Middle East, and the International
Development Foundation.
What these organizations do
for their money is largely a mystery. The American Friends of
the Middle East, which is based
in Washington, mails out a newsletter periodically to correspondents, most of whom, unless they
