Candor Seen As Generation Gap Bridge

Although it was not yet the
ninth hour, we were barefoot
in the ballroom of the Phoenix
Hotel. All 135 of us.
And we were not only barefoot, we were walking sadly and
silently through the woods. Then
we were moving through a city
teeming with strangers. On command the ballroom became a
place filled with good and understanding friends. Again we were

We were sensual. We were
authentic beings. And we were at
the beck and call of Dr. Richard
Hey who was helping us bridge
the generation gap.

Dr. Hey, president of the National Council on Family Relations, was the Monday evening
speaker for the Fourth Ceneral
Session of the Southeastern Council on Family Relations which

has been meeting in Lexington
since Sunday.
The doctor arrived at the meeting eating a candy bar which
he offered to share with bystanders.

his suitcoat and shoes. Then he

and other professionals in education to move the chairs to the
sides of the room and "everybody take off your shoes and all

Bruce Carver stated the proposal, stemming from the board's

plans utilizing 12 voting places
on campus over a two-da- y
period, saying "we will recommend
the one which we feel is the
most feasible to implement."
The board's plan came in response to that proposal by SG
representative Steve Bright,
"That All Might Participate," a
bill called "one of the most controversial bills" introduced before the SG Assembly in several years.
Bright's proposal had called

Elections Committee to see what
they could come up with, for
an election proposal.
The twelve proposed polling
places which Carver says will
cover the campus "almost like

period so that the UK student
body can have a "relatively easy

If contested, it would be easy
to hold another election in two

Carver and would present no

Architecture Series Features Artistic Flicks
Kernel Staff Writer
Georges Melies films were featured in the third installment
of the School of Architecture Film
Series shown Monday night in the

Student Center Theatre.

Melies films, produced in the
early 1900's, were short, humorous, slapstick and very fantastic. Even though some may
consider them crude by today's
standards, they must still be recognized as the first films used
for artistic purposes, and by my
standards they are not crude but
brilliant, especially when the age
they were produced in is considered.
Long before others ventured
into the film realm, Melies was
experimenting with techniques
which are now considered commonplace: the fade-i- n and fade-ou-t,
double exposure, and
to name a few. In
all 10 of his films, these techniques are used, no mean task
with the materials he had to use.

stops, and very good use, to
cause the disappearance of Jupiter's subjects, and at the end,
of Jupiter himself. As in many
of his films, Melies uses slapstick comedy, foreshadowing the
style of many silent films which

were produced

In addition to the slapstick
which inhabits the films, Melies,

with his filming techniques. "Extraordinary Illusions" is a good
example of the combination of
magic and filming tricks, with
its illusions of a mannequin being transformed into a woman,
and a woman into a chef.
"The Mermaid" also incorporates magic into its format,
beginning with a magician pulling fish from a hat, then the

is used also, as the
Devil demonstrates his powers

to Faust.

"The Inn Where No Man
Rests" combines several of the
filming techniques pioneered by
Melies, but its real value is in
the slapstick comedy which it
presents throughout. In action
and filming, it surpasses many if
not most of the silent slapstick
comedies which came later.
Through his techniques and
his ability in magic, along with
his imagination, Melies not only
foreshadowed slapstick humor,
but in "The Damnation of Faust"
and "The Infernal Cauldron" he
may be seen as a pioneer of
today's horror movies.
Though there is some humor
evident, filming methods and the
stories themselves make the films
seem terrifyingly real. The scenes
of Hell and the Devil's demonstration of his powers in "Faust,"
and the transformation of a
woman into a ghostly image in

Due to the very nature of a
motion picture, it is often difficult to discern exactly who is
responsible for the "great" movies. From American preoccupation with the mythical glamour

Hollywood, we are prone to consider the actors as the main
factor in any movie.

would argue that they and the
producers who provide money
make or break a movie. In a way
they are right, because people
like Gable, lkgart, Taylor, Brando and movies like "Cone With
The Wind," "On The Waterfront," and "The Third Man"
could never have reached the
excellence they did if someone
like the Warner Brothers or C. IJ.
DeMille hadn't backed them.
Fortunately, older and wiser
minds, mainly European, have
convinced American film makers
that a mat way to make a movie
is to let the director have complete control over the production of the film. For years, only
Orson Welles could be ranked
with Eisenstein, Renoir and Van
Stroheim as great directors. Ev en
as late as the '50's and 'GO's,

This is the subject of Joseph

In a series of 16 short interviews of directors of American

asks stupid questions like "Why

akin to asking "What is our purpose in life?" at a cocktail party.

Spirophiles In Ugly Mood

Isaacs Warns Newspaper Editors

EL PASO, Tex, (AP)-NorIsaacs, head of
the American Society of Newspaper Editors and
Courier-Journexecutive editor warned Texas
publishers Monday that "an ugly mood" against
news media is sweeping the country and predicted it would get worse.
Isaacs told delegates to the Texas Daily Newspapers Association that Vice President Agnew's
criticism of news media "has tipped over a witch's

"We have more sick people in this country than
we would like to admit more people who would
give up freedom of the press willingly than we
have admitted.
"The national mood about the communications
media is indeed an ugly one. The signs point to

Isaacs said he was not complaining about Agnew's criticism of television and newspapers.

The KEA has proposed a

requested raise.
At their meeting in Louisville

"What concerned me was what I considered
to be an attempt to intimidate television networks
and muzzle commentary. I'm afraid all of us have
seen the effect. It has worked to some extent and
probably will more," he said.
"I am still astonished that more newspapers
did not stand up to fight for their colleagues
in television on the occasion of Agnew's first attack.
"To cling to the theory that we on newspapers are the only journalists is utter nonsense.
Too many newspapermen are still passionately
involved in a private feud with television. Here we
have the most powerful form of communication in
history and many newspapermen seem blindly
intent in denying its existence, " he added.

Bond Reform Critical
House Bill 29, bail bond reform,
is one of the most progressive pieces
of legislation presented at this session of the Kentucky General Assembly.
Introduced by the able Speaker
of the House Julian Carroll, who
stepped from his speaker's chair to
present the proposal from the floor,
it passed by a gratifying 79-- 0 vote.
The overwhelming passage was
interpreted as a personal victory
for Carroll as a similar measure two
years ago went down to defeat in
the House.
The bill now rests in the Senate
Judicial Committee for consideration. We sincerely hope that the
Senate follows the lead of the House
in passing this
into law.
It is assuring to note that the
bill has received little or no negative lobbying from the state's bail
bondsmen. In fact, many of those
affected by the bill have come out
in favor of its passage.

Obviously, they realize the stigwith which they
have been too long saddled. They
are as anxious to see their profession controlled as the rest of the
ma of surliness

Of course, those bondsmen who
favor reform are those who manage clean businesses. Passage of
the legislation will sound the death
knell for the characters who have
made their living taking advantage
of people under duress.
Quite naturally, an arrested person will go to any lengths to avoid
spending time in jail. A passed bill
would mean that bondsmen will
no longer be able to impose outlandish fees, require undue collateral or make more bonds than they
are able to back up.
O ur st ate legi slatur e should take
every step to prevent repetition of
the slip-u- p which occurred during
its last session. A repeat performance would be unforgiveable.
