Castillo on revenue sharing: "not enough to go around"
Leonel Castillo, city comptroller of accounts, gave a lecture here on the Thursday before break. The Comptroller
keeps Houston's books and reports the balance to the Mayor
and City Council. Thus, Castillo has had a lot of contact
with Federal revenue sharing.
U n d e r the revenue sharing
program, Houston received 14
million dollars to help get the
federal government "off the
(backs and out of the pockets"
of local government. Next, we
got a thick book of instructions
on how to spend it. (Mr. Castillo shrugged — "I have never
heard of a program involving
federal funds without some
kind of control from Washington.") We also had 40 or 50
million dollars worth of federal
services cut. These were mostly social welfare and pollution
programs, trimmed, frozen, or
cut completely—largely without
consent of Congress.
Mr. Castillo answered the
Nixon claim that the cuts were
meant to "trim the f a t off" of
some programs by saying, "You
don't trim fat by slashing away
wildly with a butcher's knife."
He reported further that Federal grants have been cut "virtually across the board."
To make things worse, the
cuts were arbitrary and unexpected. No one knew if they'd
get their pay. One dental program pulled a lot of poor people's teeth, but never got the
money to replace them.
Instead of continuing federal
services, Houston is planning to
the rice thresher
volume 60, number 23
thursday, march 8, 1973
spend the money on capital improvements
(streets, sewers,
etc.). These are important, but
the poor can't eat concrete, especially with no teeth.
The hope was raised, however, that community g r o u p s
would pressure the city to reconsider the plans for the
money. Unless this happens, or
more cash arrives from the Federal Government, there is little hope for obtaining sufficient funds to maintain Houston social services.
Castillo is not, in principle,
opposed to revenue s h a r i n g , but,
a s he said with a t w i n g e of
m o u r n f u l n e s s in his voice, "everyone t h o u g h t t h e r e would be

More on 'Move Rice' proposal
Rarely if ever has an idea
engendered so much controversy as the proposal to sell Rice
University which was recently
presented in the Rice Thresher.
Associate Professor William T.
Cannady of t h e School of Archit e c t u r e has been contacted by
students f r o m several parts of
the University with questions
and criticism. I, as co-author
of the Thresher article have
also met a b a r r a g e of questions. This article will a t t e m p t

s t u d e n t s and f a c u l t y h a v e
Tuition cut
. The Cannady proposal to sell
Rice University was based on
ideas. F i r s t
these was the f a c t of Rice's current financial squeeze. In Cannady's initial article in the
Faculty Club Forum in High Emprise, he showed t h a t Rice could
realize a p r o f i t of $60 to $90
million by sale and relocation.
This money, when added to existing endowment f u n d s , could
allow tuition to be cut to about
$250 per t e r m , considerably below the c u r r e n t $1100. As a
second issue, Cannady raised
the point t h a t operational expenses could be cut in a new
physical plant. F u r t h e r , he
pointed out existing circulation
open space systems. Finally, a
new campus would allow flexibility to be built-in so that it
might b e t t e r respond to changing educational needs in the
phone books, etc.) be bundled
or sacked, t h a t a l u m i n u m cans
be separated f r o m o t h e r kinds
and t h a t clear glass be separated from colored.
Questions about the Cannady
proposal have generally centered on two areas. The first
are criticisms on how a new
campus would look. The second
deal with problems of relocation.
question regarding
whether such a move is possible under the Rice charter has
also been raised. However, most
students h a v e not questioned
the financial advantages to be
gained, nor the idea that new
physical facilities might be
better planned.
•"I wouldn't have come to Rice
if it didn't have such a p r e t t y
campus. A new campus wouldn't
have any t r e e s . " This is t h e
m o s t common criticism of t h e
Cannady proposal. It rests on
the underlying: assumption that
the existing campus is the best
of all possible worlds. Cannady has commented, "Isn't it
s t r a n g e how people immediately assume t h a t relocation will
produce a poorer environment.
Without thinking, the implicit
assumption is t h a t a new campus can't b e ' b e t t e r looking."
One m i g h t also added t h a t
the existing campus s u f f e r s
f r o m s e v e r e environmental
problems due to poor drainage,
the problem of dying birds in
J a n u a r y and F e b r u a r y , and
f r o m the severe Houston smog.
A move to the wooded a r e a
n o r t h of Houston would probably result in a more heavily
f o r e s t e d campus. Such a location f o r the campus would be
in the hills (no d r a i n a g e problem), a m o n g s t a t u e s q u e pines
and away f r o m bird m i g r a t i o n
routes. If the new c a m p u s
facilities were some kiml of

up less space t h a n the c u r r e n t

An objection h a s also been
raised to the the f a c t t h a t new

relocation. If Rice w e r e to move
to the n o r t h of H o u s t o n to one
of the new towns c u r r e n t l y in

t h e s e questions with several answers. First, he note t h e relative isolation of the existing
campus and its dependence on.
Houston freeways. Students already travel long distances to
cultural and commercial facilities such as Galleria and
Sharpstown. Further, a n e w

Rice Summer School seeks interested students, funds
To the editor:
Much has been said and written in defense of Rice as an
elitist school. But we must be
careful in the use of the word
elitist. What is meant by elite?
It means of course different
things in different contexts and
to different people. To some
people elite might imply a high
social standing and to others it
might imply a high rank on
some sort of economic scale.
But the use of elite of Rice has
been with reference to intellect.
When we are speaking of an
elite at Rice, we are speaking
of an intellectual elite.
Intellectual and socio-economic. elites are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, there is evidence that the social and economic upper classes in our society produce more than their
share of the intellectual elite.
But the large contribution of
the less than rich to the intellectual elite is obvious from the
very large percentage of students at Rice who receive some
f o r m of financial aid. The intellectual elite comes from all
economic and social classes in
our society. For this reason
Rice must continue to have a
healthy financial aid program
and to t r y to improve financial
aid. Xo student should turn
down Rice for financial Teas' ins.
Hut this is an a r e i in which
students can do very little until they become rich alumni.
However, there is an area where
students can show a significant
support for the idea of developing our intellectual elite. This
is the Rice Summer School for
high school and junior high
school students. The Rice Summer School is operated by the
education department for two
purposes. The f i r s t and most
obvious is to provide necessary
teacher training for its Texas
teacher certification program.
The teachers a t the Rice Summer School are Rice students
who are student teaching. They
pay one hundred dollars each in
order to be allowed to teach in
The second purpose of the
Rice Summer School is to provide an interesting and enjoyable educational experience to
Houston area high school students. The Summer School is
not designed for students who
flunked a course and need to
make it up; it is for students
who are interested enough in
learning to want to go to school
even in summer. Very few of
the courses at the Rice Summer
School duplicate courses offered in an ordinary high school.
Thus students who sign up for
the Rice Summer School have
marked themselves as at least
potentially a member of the intellectual elite. But this interest must be encouraged, particularly in those students who
probably do not receive encouragement a t home or among
friends. The R i c e Summer
school works to encourage a
real interest and enjoyment in
learning. But each student must
pay $75 tuition, plus books and
supplies. This is a very light
burden for the parents of a
relatively well off suburban f a mily. But for a student from a
poor family, who could otherwise be working at some summer job, this $75 is prohibitive.
Unfortunately, the t u i t i o n
which is set by Dr. Hackerman,

Heyman urges atonement for war guilt
To the Rice community
The war seems officially
over, but for most of us at Rice
it was never really on—never
more than a television show.
Whatever our political beliefs,
it must seem evident to us all
that for the Vietnamese people,
suffering has become a way of
life. This is a tragedy to which
we have all been witness and,
whatever our personal attempts
to lessen the pain, our efforts
have been removed from where
the worst suffering takes place.
We of the Rice community,
as with all Americans, would
seem to have a clear responsibility to finally take advantage of a temporary renewal of
interest in the war, sparked by
the return of American prison-
the rice thrasher
ers of war, to take steps toward becoming involved in what
is at best a belated show of
interest. The s h a m e is that
most Americans, myself included, have waited until now to
personally • t r y and reverse to
some small degree the wrongs
committed by a government
acting in our name. We are
seemingly helpless to do much
that is of concrete value to the
people most directly hurt — the
Vietnamese people — apart
from financial aid, which is the
favorite way in which Americans commit themselves and
the easiest. The crimes committed in Vietnam seem beyond
our touch — we can only urge
our Congress to vote as consistently for money to rebuild
as they did for the funds used
to destroy.
We can do little directly for
the Vietnamese, but the suffering from this war extends to
others: those who, again, in our
name, fought in this unjust
war. Most were drafted, a f a t e
most of us escaped" by coming
to Rice, and as seems evident
from the ever-present stories
about "someone I know who
was in Vietnam", most return
to find their suffering derided
or at best ignored. Many have
died, and their loss is something which not even a thousand of Mr. Nixon's speeches
can justify. But to those who
return, it must seem that Americans never even heard of
Vietnam — or perhaps we have
heard so much that now we no
longer want to hear.
Houston must certainly contain numerous veterans willing
to let us t r y and help—for our
help may be unwanted, as Rice
has not been noted of late for
its interest in the needs of our
community. Certainly there are
many efforts in which R i c e
could take part, but we seem to
prefer our studies. I mention
the needs to returning veterans only in the hope that it
will bring one issue out loud,
a f t e r which it will probably
join the silent company of the
o t h e r s while we talk of the
birds and mid-terms. Whatever
the talk of Rice apathy, I can't
but believe t h a t there is some
issue SOMEWHERE w h i c h
will awaken enough people to
There are eight colleges at Rice. Theoretically, this
means eight experiments in community government.
Actually, most people take one of two attitudes toward
the college system: either "It works; leave it alone" or
"It doesn't work; forget it". Once in a while, though,
something interesting comes up. Example: the proposed
constitutional amendments for Sid Richardson.

P.S. My time is open for any
suggestions of ways in which I
can do the least damage with
my help—I wrote this letter instead of my English paper and
can only believe that were every Rice student to give one
night's study time to ANYTHING else, neither it nor his
studies would suffer any irreparable setbacks. Also, my sincere apologies to the many Rice
students who, unlike me, have
not been inactive but have
worked hard on many projects.

Rarely do Wiess College members hear of the Senate's doing anything constructive. Perhaps, as President Hoskins
claims, there is a communications failure, but there is also
a strong possibility t h a t the
Senate spends more time quibbling than performing.

Why are the Food Service and

I could suggest many more

possible—what are we going to
do about the birds ? While some
•Senate .members may nof be
concerned about the question,
many of us have an interest in
the issue, as we are finding it
increasingly difficult to breathe.
I would like to suggest a solution to the problem which would
restore the student body's faith
in the Senate: instead of meeting in Sewall Hall, each Senate member shall climb a tree
in a different part of the campus. Each meeting, of course,
must be held at night, otherwise no benefit will occur. The
merits of my proposal are obvious. By climbing the trees,
the Senate members will scare
most of the birds sh
(Perhaps we don't want that,
but it cannot be avoided). Because the members will be
spaced out, so to speak, they
will be required to yell, quibble, etc., even more loudly than
usual. Therefore, the remainder
of the bird population will leave
the Institute. If the procedure
were followed, say, every night
f o r two weeks, not only would
the bird problem be solved, but
also the Senate would begin to
restore its credibility.

Tentative registration plan to solve drop-add problem
The Committee on Examinations & Standings meets weekly to discuss academic regulations and policies. The decisions
it reaches are of two kinds:
those concerning individual students and those which affect
the whole university.
The committee is responsible
f o r the readmission of students
who are on suspension f o r
academic or disciplinary rea-
sons. It also approves each student's choice of m a j o r ( s ) or
area major. The committee
spends almost half of its time
considering individual cases in
these two areas.
The remainder of the committee's time is spent reviewing
academic regulations and policies. Here are some of the actions taken by the committee so
f a r this year:
SA Senate action
The Student Senate, in its regular meeting March 7, approved
the results of last month's elections, in addition to receiving reports
about several ongoing SA projects.
Rob Quartel made a preliminary report about the recent
National Student Lobby meetings held in Washington, D.C. Complete details of the convention will be carried in the Thresher.
In an action which aroused some controversy, the Senate
tabled a bill which would establish operating guidelines for the
Rice Recycling Center, which apparently has no such guidelines
now. The move was called controversial because the center is expected to make a profit and will be paying salaries.
The senate also appropriated $50 for Frank Pavlick f o r work
clone on the freshman handbook. In addition, Paul Carney was
appointed to the control board of the campus store.
International student I.D. cards, which can be used for discounts on air fares, will be sold a t cost—approximately $2—to
Rice students. The cards are good for one year.
Expecting a large turnout for the recycling center opening
Friday afternoon, the senate appropriated money for a second keg.
The Senate adjourned, to meet as a committe of the whote
to discuss nominations f o r the Mentor Award, which is presented
annually to the faculty member or administrator who has been of
greatest service to the student body.

students to live off-campus.)
Another alternative might be
student owned and run co-ops
similar to those recently inaugurated at Berkeley.
It is also worth noting that
the University of Houston will
build its north campus in the
Woodlands; the feasibility of
shared facilities in t h a t new
town might be examined. The
combination of Rice and UH
students in the new town would
certainly vitalize it.
Charter hassle
If the Cannady proposal is to
succeed1, it will demand a reinterpretation
charter, which states that the
campus cannot be used, sold,
etc. except f o r educational purposes. (Indeed, this would not
even allow the alternative proposal of leasing the back 120
acres and/or joint venturing a
commercial development with a
9 a
Hines.) However, the charter
also outlawed black students
and tuition. Liberal interpretations of the charter in the
courts have said that the goal
of the charter was to make
Rice a fine institution of learning. Therefore, it is likely t h a t
a similar rethinking of the
charter in the courts would be
favorably received.
Cannady points out that the
main idea behind his proposal
is that people should consider
the purpose and meaning of
physical facilities. A new campus could provide Rice with the
f i r s t step toward the future.
Experiments in education might
be built-in: cable TV, video-taping of lectures, an integral
computer system, alternative
housing patterns. The Rice
would become a commitment to,
innovative excellence.
The committee also nominated two juniors f o r a joint
program with Baylor College of
Medicine. This program will allow these students to receive
the BA from Rice and their MD
f r o m Baylor a f t e r six years.
The nominations were submitted to Dr. Hackerman, who had
received the proposed program
f r o m Dr. Michael DeBakey.
IThe committee decided t h a t
credit should be given to some
people who had taken College

tests in certain subjects. It also
sent a proposal to Dr. Hackerman stating these tests might
be useful a placement tests for

The committee recently endorsed a proposal f r o m new SA
president Doug Appling which
would allow students to change
their pass-fail status to a grade
status up until the end of the
tenth week of the semester.
This proposal is awaiting action by the University Council.
The most sweeping action
taken by the committee .concerns registration. Currently,
students, as well as the registrar's office, face the problem of
drop-adds each semester. A program which w i l l hopefully
lighten this burden has been
approved. As before, students
will rr.(:<: t with their advisor
near the end of the spring .-. At this time they will

registration for the fall it will
only be a tentative one, used
to make room assignments and
allow teachers to estimate the
size of their classes. At the beginniing of each semester, students will be allowed two weeks
to decide on final registration.
During these two weeks, they
will be encouraged to "window
shop" courses they might be
interested in. At the end of two
weeks, only one registration
form will have to be submitted. Students would still be
able to add and drop according
to university regulations a f t e r
the second week, paying $10.
The Committee welcomes suggestions on what has been or
could be done, especially comm e n t s on the registration
changes, and on advising you

a topic to be considered in the

cannot be lowered, for reasons t h a t are clear to Dr. Hackerman. In fact there is some consideration of the idea of raising
the tuition. This means t h a t unless some form of financial aid
is found the intellectual elite
nourished by the Rice Summer
School will be merely the economic elite. But Rice in the
past has been a very generous
school. Students, faculty and
staff and colleges have all
given support to the poorer students of Houston who have
wanted to attend the Rice Summer School.
As has been indicated, the
Rice Summer School offers an
alternative to the dry discipline
oriented classroom of the typical high school. All the courses are pass-fail graded. The
classes are small with encouragement of individual achieve-
ment. And the courses are interesting. Typical courses in
science and math are Oceanoraphy, Our Environment: Its
Number Theory and Computer
Programming. In the humanities there are such courses as:
The Roots of Soul: The Evolution of Black Culture, Science
Fiction, and America Since
W W I I : The Good, The Bad, The
Ugly. Every student must also
take a t P.E. course such as
Badminton or Archery or many
This summer school isn't for
everybody, just as Rice, or college, is not f o r everybody, but
if a student is interested and
capable, to deny his interest f o r
financial reasons is to deny the
f u t u r e of the so called intellectual elite.

Inside the NWPC as quiet Farenthold wins chair
The opening session of the
last day of the National Womans' Political Caucus proved
that women have reached equality in at least one area: it
was as boring as any male convention I've been to. Its parliamentary rigamarole went on
for a very long time. Then a
rumor spread through the press
Mrs. Farenthold spoke for a
few minutes, very quiet and demure, always looking at the
lectern, and than went off for
a strategy session with some
of her advisers. When she had
gone it became obvious t h a t
sentiment in the room was overwhelmingly against her running for the national office.
section that Sissy Farenthold,
defeated candidate for t h e
Democratic gubernatorial nomination, was considering running for the chairman/woman/
personship of the NWPC. At
that moment she Was meeting
with the Texas delegation in a

advice and send out her support.

1 received the impression,
though it was never stated, that
outside of Sissy there was no
real leadership in the Texas
women's movement, and they
didn't want to lose her. The
main objection raised by those
opposed was that "It'll ruin
her chances for the governorship i-n '76." When a vote was
taken o n l y
two delegates
wanted her to run for the higher office, though the general
feeling was that "we'll support
Sissy in whatever she decides
to do." The meeting broke up,

and soon an answer came. She
was going to go for it.
The convention had previously broken up into small state
caucuses. E a c h candidate for
office was to visit these caucuses, and make a short sipeech
explaining her position. The
final balloting was to be at
I followed Mrs. Farenthold
from caucus to caucus; judging only from what I heard,
her chances didn't look good.
The first thing that struck me
as she got up to speak in her
quiet gray dress and beads was
that "This is a lady". The second thing was "She is no public speaker." Each speech ran
about the same, which is normal for any political campaign.
"My name is Francis Farenthold. and I'm l'unning for the
chairpersonship of the National
Woman's Political Caucus. I'm
afraid that I've been away for
most of the convention, and I
probably couldn't give you any
answers to any specific questions, just right now. My first
act if I am elected will be to
find out exactly what was
decided at the convention." All
this in a very soft voice, al«ways looking at the floor. It
was not impressive.

Balloting was by secret count,
the delegates voting in their
regional caucuses. The final
tally was McKay-149, Farenthold 476%. I can't be sure
about the last figure. People
were cheering all around me.
The upshot of the acceptance
speech was "We will take this
movement forward!" What this
election will do to Sissy's political clout in Texas remains to
be seen.

he cannot be prosecuted for

Sissy takes it
The campaigning was soon
o v e r , and the nominatingspeeches began. McKay went,
first; the applause was mostly
from her home delegation of
North Carolina. After the first
speech for Farenthold it was
obvious how the chips were going to fall: three quarters of
the convention rose to its feet
and began chanting "We want
Sissy! We want Sissy!" with
battling Bella leading the cheers
in a New York bellow. The McKay camp looked very glum,
and I heard Ms. Fridan tell
another reporter, using five
words where one would do, "It's
not that I'm against Sissy, and
of com*se I'll support her if
she's elected. It's just that I
think we need some new blood
in the movement . . . "
After New York I followed
Marsha McKay, Sissy's opponent, about for a while. Ms.
McKay is tall, wore a pant suit,
short haircut, a fine speaker,
and very much the go-getter.
Two totally different personalities. If I hadn't known Sissy,
I would have supported McKay.

On the other hand, Steve

I t could have been more except
f o r a questionable call by the
home plate umpire on a t a g a p peal. The three runs were on
the board and men were leading
off from f i r s t and third. The
centerfielder Bill Bippert made
a spectacular diving catch on
catcher Ednie Janik's low liner.
Bryan Boyne, hanging close a t
third, was able to quickly touch
and go home. Bippert made a
dosperate throw towards third
base and the third baseman
tagged. The
umpire called
Boyne out, retiring the side.
Possibly the umpire was too
intent on watching the centerfielder's heroics and could not
believe t h a t Boyne had gone
back to t a g third.
In the second game, leftfielder John Jacobson hit a

William Saroyan, the playwright, wishes us to believe

has made it extremely difficult
f o r any of his characters to
convey his desires. With a
script containing more empty
rhetoric and self-conscious moralizing t h a n a traveling evangelical revival, it's a wonder t h a t

Bowie picks up strange pupils for odd rock school
Undoubtedly one of the biggest influences on rock music
during the last year was Britisl^r David Bowie. He became
well-known for his concert appearances, which reached new
heights in flashy "rock theater," and for his records—most
especially The Rise and Fall of
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which could be
the soundtrack for a science
fiction version of A Hard Day's
Night. Along with these accomplishments, it seems that
now the David Bowie School of
AC/DC Rock has been established, with star pupils Lou
Reed and Mott the Hoople.
Lou Reed's new L P Transformer (RCA Records) and All
the Young Dudes by Mott t h e
Hoople (Columbia Records) a r e
only t a n g e n t s to each other,
t h e point in common being t h a t
David Bowie produced t h e m
Transformer is a real joy,
one of the best records in
months. Influenced p a r t l y by
his historic career with New
York City's resident punk band,
t h e Velvet Undeground, partly
by his f u t u r i s t i c s u p e r s t a r /
producer friend Bowie, Lou
Reed wrote all of the songs on
the LP, some of which are predictably in the Velvet Underg r o u n d / Z i g g y Stardust tradition (such as the opening cut,
"Vicious," which sounds somew h a t like David Bowie's '<Queen
Bitch," which is reminiscent of
R e e d ' s "White L i g h t / W h i t e
H e a t " . . . ), but most of the
songs are suprisingly f r e s h ,
gentle, mellow.
Strange songs
Lou Reed w r i t e s really
s t r a n g e songs; a goodly number are about his f a m o u s
f r i e n d s and life in the Big Apple. Some, like "Andy's Chest,"
a r e weird — "If {his l a s t time
you were here, things were a
bit askew/Well, you know w h a t
happens a f t e r d a r k / W h e n t h e
rattlesnakes lose their skins
and their h e a r t s / A n d
the missionaries l o s e their
b a r k . . . " "New York Telephone Conversation" is coy —
"Who has touched and who has
dabbled/Here in the city of
shows ?/Openings, closings, bad
repartee/Everybody k n o w s . . . "
"Walk on the Wild Side" is
more explicit — "Holly came
f r o m Miami, Fla./Hitchhiked
her way across the U S A /
Plucked her eyebrows on the
way/Shaved her legs, and then
he was a she/She said hey,
babe, take a walk on the wild
Maybe David Bowie's influence has liberated Reed as
concerns his dual sexuality.
More open t h a n ever, in "Make
U p , " Lou Reed sings of t h e
joys of being a d r a g queen with
a chorus t h a t goes, "Now
we're coming o u t / O u t of our
closets/ Out on t h e s t r e e t s /
Yeah, we're coming out . . . "
A few gay innuendoes appear
on some of the other songs as
well ("'Goodnight, Ladies").
Ziggy Stardust
The best songs on the album
are the Ziggy S t a r d u s t — like
"Satellite of Love" (a f a n t a s t i c
song—it would be g r e a t as a
hit single), "Walk on the Wild
Side," and "Wagon Wheel," although the L P s t a r t s out g r e a t
and gets better, so really every cut is a winner.
The musicianship is consistently excellent — D a v i d
Bowie's production is impeccable and a presence in itself.
His g u i t a r i s t Mick Ronson supplies some guitar, lots of piano,
musical arrangements, and production assistance. Klaus Voorm a n is outstanding on bass,
Herbie Flowers' horn arrangem e n t s are perfect, and the
Thunder Thighs are terrific on
background vocals (especially
on "Wagon Wheel").
All the Young Dudes
Mott t h e Hoople h a s always
been an immensely likeable
hard-rock band. They have f o u r
widely (and r a t h e r unjustly)
neglected albums on Atlantic,
and now with a n e w ' l a b e l and
a new producer, perhaps f o r
once Mott the Hoople will be
Not t h a t they're a g r e a t rock
band of epic proportions. At
their very worst (such as on
"I'm Ready f o r Love") t h e y
sound like Humble Pie or maybe Free. But t h e f i r s t side of
All the Young Dudes p u t s together some good h a r d rock,
opening with one of the best
hard rock ballads ever, "Sweet
J a n e " written by Lou Reed
(small world, h m ? ) .
"Momma's Little Jewel" is
crisp, tight, and n a s t y ; it
sounds like a good John Lennon cooker, cutting straight
into "All the Young Dudes,"
which is undeniably transplanted f r o m David Bowie's material.
"All t h e Young Dudes" is an
odd song, like something out of
A Clockwork Orange, a suitable
tribute to t h a t c u r r e n t breed of
young men ( d r o o g s ? ) like Mott
the Hoople, like Marc Bolan,
like the c h a r a c t e r s on the cover
of t h e album. There are a f e w
classic David Bowie lines tossed
in, of course ("I need TV, but
I got T. Rex . . . " ) .
Those t h r e e songs, along w i t h
"One of the Boys," which opens
side 2, a r e the high points of
t h e album. The other tracks a r e
tight, competent British rock
and roll, Mott t h e Hoople style.
While lacking t h e originality

Bud Drinkers, can
you figure this out?
Ralph bought a 6-pak of Budweiser,) and invited four friends over to share it.
Since he bought, he expected to have two cans to himself, but unfortunately
when he returned to the refrigerator for his second, he found it missing. So he
asked who took it. A1 said, "Joe drank it." Joe said, " D a n drank it." Dan said,
"Joe, that's a lie!" And Bill said, "I didn't drink it." If only one of these
statements is true, who really drank it?
