The chorus of the opera "Die
Fledermous" was surprised to learn
that it was singing popular songs
written 150 years ago.
During rehearsals the chorus was
told that many songs they had been
singing for years as
numbers are really "long-hairepieces, written long before their
time.
Unlike most opera choruses, that
of "Die Fledermous" is closely woven
into the story and is an integral
part of the opera. Usually, the
chorus bursts forth in the wrong
places (musically speaking) and is
somewhat irrelevent.
Among the songs the "Fledermous" chorus thought were semi- popular but are actually semi- classical, are:
"Drinking Song.' "But The Time
Is Now." "Oh The Delight Of A
Night With You," and a polka number. "I Took A Girl With The Golden Hair."
In "Die Fledermous" the chorus
fits in very naturally, in that they
are guests at the party and ball.
thereby justifying their singing and
dancing. The also remain as sec- -,
ondary members of the cast
throughout the play.
Most of the chorus personnel are
enrolled in the Music Department's
summer opera workshop. Members
of the chorus are James Arnold.

A Reflective Conversation
'Tween An Angle And A Saint
By JACK CADV

""lit Peter. dreamed the idea up when it was
needed and it looked like a goxl thing." Mr. Marx
shifted his we ight on the small cloud and regarded
St. Peter ruefully. "I predicted that it was coming
and that there was nothing anyone could do about
il. but I didn't think that people would get it as
fouled up as they have. Just between you and me I
always was a little leery of what might happen, but
it s getting out of hand."

lies in the fact that you're here. There are a lot of

Of c ourse they couldn't make it w ork. They're still

"No thanks, if we milk any more out of this cloud
it'll disintegrate and right now I'm so tired and discouraged tliat I couldn't even flip a feather if I were
falling all the way clown. It might do some good
though, if I were to fall on the right people. Not
that I'm advocating it. That wouldn't be in keeping
with my surroundings. I'm just saying that it might
do some good."
He leaned over and sigjied, "That the name of
K;;rl Marx should lx' aligned with that crew. All
they want is power. They lust for it. They fight for
it. If they pray at all that's what they pray for. I
know that there shouldn't lx? discontent in Heaven

"Sure you meant well, old man. It's just that you
were a little short on human nature. 'Ideals' is a
nice word down there and, strangely enough, a lot
of people have them. It's just that you tried to
create an altruistic state but unless everyone has
those ideals it won t work. Another thing, you advocated overthrow by force. That just wasn't in
keeping with the general spirit of the thing. Perhaps it might come under righteous anger but it
was the only thing that looked bad on your record.
I think I'll hop over to that lime flavored cloud.
These rolxs are loose but a man has to have something cx)l on a clay like this. He back in a minute."
He dived off the cloud with the grace of years of
practice and flew gently away.
Mr. Marx leaned over the cloud and looked down.
"There's that man again," he thought. "If he doesn't
come to pretty soon he'll lose all of his mustache in
the eternal fire. He's in a position to do a lot of
gcxxl, but w ill he? No."
Mr. Marx glanced quickly around and, seeing no
one, he carefully tcxk aim and spit. "It isn't as if
he didn't deserve it," he thought.
The cloud jiggled and the good saint landed just
as gently as he had left. "Nice shot," he said, "but it
isn't too advisable. Still and all we're above sin so
I guess it was all right. Here, take this glass and
forget the whole matter. You just got a bum steer
and a lot of people are mad at you. You couldn't
help it if the idea just won't work."
Mr. Marx txk the glass and looked happily over
Heaven. The little cherubs played in the golden
streets and angels everywhere wore loving smiles
on their faces. Mr. Marx suddenly broke into a
smile himself.
"It works here," he said.

Personalities, policies, drama and technology conspired to arouse widespread interest. Viewers on
television shared and to a degree surpassed the
sense of participation of those on the convention

Personally, the most intensely interesting part
was the fight in the credentials committee. From
the vantage point of the press table one could see
clearly the contending strategies of the opposing
forces.
In brie f compass, I will set down my impressions
of the conflict. First of all, the issues cut deeply.

The "educated, intellectual" person who attacked

I was born and raised in a town with less than
five thousand inhabitants; my father, and my father's father lived in the same town, and, somehow,

we've never come to the conclusion that our lives
were being wasted, mentally, morally, or spiritually.
Certainly there is less of interest in a small town
