abandoned its dramatic,
expressive image at the

Department’s sidewalk
cafe May 7. Donned in
bright colored satin and
garters, the female dan­
cers smiled coquetishly,
and kicked up their heels
to the can-can. (below).
Last Friday the reper­
tory joined dancers from
Reed College. The two
groups composed a
video tape, performing
“Lynch Town,” “which is
an early modern dance
classic,” according to
the College repertory’s
advisor, Jane Ricken-
baugh. This video tape is
available for viewing in
the College audio-visual
department (above).

Thoughts of world-wide
disasters,
shortages and
holocausts were momentarily
placed in the back of
everyone’s minds by the more
pleasant thoughts of wine and
cheese as the OSU Wine and
Cheese Festival made its ap­
pearance Thursday in room
CC 117.
The purpose of the festival
was to give information on
processing cheese and the
creation of a truly fine wine.
The audience of 40 wine and
cneese lovers was also instruc­
ted on the art of serving the two
together.
Dr. Floyd Bodyfelt, dairy
processing specialist, spoke on
the subject of cheese. Saying
“Oregon does not have the
most exciting cheese manufac­
turing,” Bodyfelt described
Oregon’s best cheeses: “A
lion’s share of the cheese is
cheddar or spin-offs of Ched­
dar.” He then explained the
process of making cheese.
“Every batch of cheese is dif­
ferent,” Bodyfelt said. “There
are three kinds of cheese out:
mild, medium and sharp. Mild
hasn’t been aged for more than

four to eight months, and shar
from nine months on.”
Although not a bigol
Bodyfelt admitted, “I have on
bias in life; that is processe
cheese.” He explained, “It’s a
achievment of science ovd
conscience.” Bodyfelt ende
his speech with a servin
suggestion. “If you want a gre<
hamburger,” he said, “put bill
cheese on it.”
The second of threl
speakers was Joe Coulomb«
of the North Willamette Chai
ter of Oregon Winegrower:
“Like the cheese industry
making wine is a natur«
process,” Coulombe said. “It’s
an earth-to-bottle process.”
Coulombe warned hi
audience, “To make money ij
wine growing, you need tc
grow at least 25 acres.” He ac
ded that one should have 40
to 800 vines per acre.

Ah, there’s nothing like a life
in the theater! The College’s
hit show, “Roger and the Red
Rubber Ball,” closed May 2 af­
ter three tremendous perfor­
mances. Who cares that our
only audiences were third and
fourth graders: ignorant,
screaming peons? it was still a
good show.
Wasn’t it?
Of course it was. Thinking
negatively never does any
good.
Confidence
and
discipline are the mainsprings
of an actor’s art. If you doubt
yourself, then you undermine
your own foundations. But
then, of course, there is con­
structive criticism. How does
pne tell the difference? When
the director screams and
throws his chairs at us, is this
constructive criticism?
It was a good show, though.
It had to be. They clapped,
didn’t they? They clapped.
What the hell kind of value
judgement is that? A bunch of
“actors” bumping around on al
stage making idiots of them­
selves just so a few pre-)
pubescent egomaniacs can
clap their pimply paw?
together?
Who
appreciates
the
struggling artist today? Who)
appreciates the sacrifices, the
hours of hard work, the years;
of training required just to find
th right inflection, the perfect
expression? Who can say they I
truly appreciate “Roger and)
the Red Rubber Ball”?
We work and work and work!
chasing after an imaginary,!
elusive perfection. Directors
call us temperamental, and I
then force us to wear make-up
and weird clothes. Tortured by |
the struggle to put into form |
our chaotic-impulses of beautv ]
we go to wild parties in a
schizophrenic attempt to
stimulate
our
flagging]
creativity and, simultaneously,]
to act out ou. death fantasies]
in an orgy of drinking; all to]
what end? Just to hear the]
sound of hands slapping]
together?
Yes.
The lights. The sound. The
butterflies in our stomachs.]
The heady rush of applause;]
the waves of people foaming
onto the shore or the stage;]

the smiles broadening our]
faces as we bow...
