As the curtain opens, the people of New Hope Valley, Tennessee,
are having a rollicking square dance Just prior to the beginning of
the upcoming revival meeting. In contrast to the fun loving people
are the church elders a group of senseless,
beings" filled with prejudice, ignorance, and hate.
In a few days, after the Rev. Olin Blitch has arrived, the elders,
while looking for a baptismal creek, discover Susannah bathing
in it. From that moment on, Susannah is persecuted by hypocrisy
namely the church elders.
The climax to the drama comes when Susannah, driven by their
demands for a public confession, attends a revival meeting. There,
she meets, not Christians, but a malevolent, bigoted mob, reeking
with a sadistic curiosity in her.
In the Apocrypha of the Bible, Susannah's chastity is rewarded.
In Floyd's drama, it is not.
The play itself seems to drag a little in the first act, and the
opening scene is somewhat short of the enthusiasm necessary.

Actually, the first act as written set the scene, and the real drama

such arias as "Ain't It A Pretty Night." Her acting equals her voice.

The Rev. Olin Blitch is played by Wayland Rogers, who does a
superb Job. His characterization of a country revival preacher which
could be humorous if overplayed is not only realistic, but also
contains the pathos of a man defeated by his own teachings.
Sam Polk, played by Michael Sells, is a simple mountain trapper
prone to "go off on a drunk" occasionally, but guided by a faith in
Ood and a basic understanding of people. Sells' character is difficult
to portray due to the fact that it is not bo clearly defined as
Susannah's and Blltch's.
Little Bat, played by Randy Williams, might be called three dimensional malevolence. He is a weakling filled with fear, ignorance,

Particularly good is the scene in which Susannah is discovered

Governor Backs Rights,
Legislature Backs Down
The Kernel was saddened Monday when our General Assembly
failed to give support to the calling
of a special session to enact civil
rights legislation for the state.
While the
idea is new, the Kernel believes that
the legislators are grabbing at straws
in criticizing the Governor for the
caucus rather than calling
a long, expensive special session to
again turn down the bills.
The Governor has gone on record, and even staked part of his
political future, on securing rights
for our Negro citizens on the state

Monday our state legislators were

form of government. We also believe
in our federal system where we have
local, state, and then federal controls.
Our legislators apparently were
looking back to last November when
Republican candidate Louie Nunn,
running on a platform with a segregationist air, came close to defeating Breathitt.

1'residrnt Johnson has been setting
forth some rather forceful comments
on w hat we will do and what we will

The men in Peking did not say
that they would openly resist any action we might take against North

that they would not stand idly by,

So now both sides have warned
and hinted and given indications of
possible action. The war of nerves in
North Viet Nam continues, as does
the plnsical war in South Viet Nam.
And the question of real action in
North Viet Nam remains.
For our part, we cannot see why
North Viet Nam should remain an
inviolate sanctuary for the forces of
aggression against South Viet Nam.

specialists, mostly civilian, are doing
the work with only one objective in
mind: To find the fairest way to bring
young men into the Armed Services
in sufficient numbers.


No one wants a draft if there is a
reasonable alternative. The draft today is inherently unfair because some
oung men are forced to serve and
others go free. The draftees don't
like it, and military leaders believe
reluctant soldiers are not the best
soldiers. The Armed Services would
rather have volunteers.
Forty-twpercent of all the men
who became 26 years old last year,
and thus passed the draft age, had
not served a day either as draftees
or volunteers. This percentage will

grow, according to Defense Department projections. The draft age population is expanding and military
manpower needs are not. Selective
Service, in other words, will become
more and more unfair. Still, the Defense Department needs men. Of the
500,000 men who entered the service
last year, 153,000 were draftees.
Where will these men come from if
the draft law expires?
Senator Nelson sees two solutions
to the problem. First, more inventives
could be offered to volunteers. The
Defense Department now spends $10
billion a year on military pay. This
could be raised. But would a 10 percent increase $1 billion to the taxpthe job? Would 20 perayers-do
cent or 30 percent do it? That is
what the McNamara study wants to
find out.
Another solution, Senator Nelson
points out, is to wait and see if the
post-wa- r
baby soon will produce
to provide
enough 18 to
the volunteers. The population bulge
will be most helpful to volunteer
recruitment just as the present draft
law expires in 1967.
By the time the thorough McNamara study is completed and the
conclusions and recommendations are
sent to Congress, the solution may be
obvious and Senator Nelson may
have been proven a good prophet.
We hope so.
