Among The Chinese People
By JAMES If. CORBETT
The Communist Party in Red China to-
day finds itself in one of the most trying
periods it has experienced since gaining con-
trol of that thickly populated country. Failure
to "liberate" Formosa, a cooling of relations
with India over Tibet and the brutal methods
used in suppressing the Tibetan revolts have
all added fuel to the fire of discontent spread-
ing among the Chinese people and there fel-
low Asians. All these have contributed to the
unrest, but perhaps the most outstanding
factor of all has been the communes.
In a country where the entire life of its
people is centned around their family, the
Red regime has broken these bonds. In an at-
mpt to pool manpower in its "great leap
forward" families have been separated and
numbers relocated in separate communes.
In many cases, husband and wife were
unable to contact each other for weeks al the
time. Children were taken from their parents
and placed in school or jobs in locations that
made a reunion with their parents almost im-
possible. Babies were placed in state owned
nurseries which often meant permanent se-
paration from parents.
At first the system seemed to be working
as production of goods grew by leaps and
bounds. Mines were being worked 24 hours
per day. Workers slept in barracks style con-
structions with little rest and no recreation.
Factories ran continually under the watchful
eyes of Red Officials.
Slowly, however, the tide began to turn
where production figures were once on a con-
tinual climb, they leveled off temporarily and
then began to decline. Morale among workers
had been shattered and the results were being
reflected by the efforts they put forth. The
Communes had taken their toll.
Conscious of the fallacy of their system,
the Communist leaders began to backtrack.
Though still claiming the experiment a suc-
cess and the backtrack a reward for the peoples
efforts. Red officials are fully aware of the
furor the plan has caused. Whether recogni-
D of the dangef came to late or not is a
question that only time will answer. The West
of course hopes it did. Chances are good, how-
ever, that any discontent will be quelled by
the overpowering force the communist regime
has at its disposal.

All's Well That Ends Well'
Accomplished Cast Performs Effectively
In The Greatest Love Story Ever Told
During the intermission the FIRST
night, as I sat there mumbling that
this was a hideous comedy of errors
even though the program said
ROMEO AND JULIET on it, the edi-
tor invited me to write a few words
on this production for her hebdoma-
dal. Vain fool that I am, I said I
would. The following morning I re-
pented me, of course, and saw that
at best a reviews of THAT perform-
ance, at least would indeed be much
about nothing. Surely the tempest of
outraged sensibilities would swirl
about my head. Forsooth, I'd get
measure for measure; and being
frank, I feared the worst.
"Nothing could be THAT bad on
the second night (and this is not to
mention the twelfth night!) I said.
Therefore, Shakespeare idolator and

sionate pilgrim I made my way back
to the Flanagan Sylvan Theatre for
the second performance. This time
there was no love's labors lost; you
might even say that it was "as you
Mr. Laube was a befuddled Romeo;
perhaps in too many instances he
spoke his lines, both witty ones and
tender ones, as if they might as well
have been written in Bantu as in
English. That he did the part well as
he did is to the credit of a gentle-
man and a scholar who evidently has
had little acting experience.
By DR. FRANK HOSKINS
Mrs. Garren's Juliet was sensitive
and intelligent; therefore it was be-
lievable. Was her reading a trifle
too intense? I have always felt that
ol' Jule had the ability to laugh at
herself. Moreover, why wasn't Juliet
en deshabille during the dialogue that
followed hard upon the consumation
of the marriage? As it was, it look-
ed as though Romeo were a mere
family friend come to say goodbye.
Mr. Driver was, as usual, in com-
plete command. It's a pleasure to
watch someone do something superb-
ly, isn't it? He, as Mercutio, and Mr.
Heller, as Benvolio, understood
Shakespeare's intentions and acquitt-
ed themselves most satisfactorily.
Professor Rowe was funny and
believable. Could he have worked just
a trifle too hard at being Capulet?
Mr. Craven was, as usual, excellent
in the role of an old man in the
part of Montague.
Professor Chauncey did what she
could with a role that simply was not
written for her. I believe Shakespeare
meant for Angelica to be an ample-
bosomed, large-hipped, generous-der-
riered Earth Goddess type.
Miss Dixon was quite satisfactory
as Lady Capulet. I am glad that she
consented to make-up the second time.
Of the rest, Bob Johnson, as Paris;
Professor Withey, as Prince Escalus;
Mr. Worrell, as Tybalt; and Mr.
West, as Peter, deserve special men-
tion. It was my impression that the
cast was in general an exceptionally
The ballroom scene was well-
staged; the dance figures arranged
by Mrs. Laube, were a pleasure to
watch. This scene added immeasur-
ably to the tone of the production.
It needed, however, more vandles for
emphasis of the LIGHT and DARK
imagery of the poetry.
One scene followed hard upon
another in fine fashion, and the cen-
ter of attention moved from left to
right to center with a pleasing change
of pace. While the illumination was
adequate, I feel that lighting could
have been employed artistically more
effectively for creation of mood and
Seeing how successful were Friar
Laurence's scenes, in which there was
no "tech" to speak of, one wonders
why some of Juliet's scenes could
not have played more effectively,
and believably, on the stage rather
than on the balcony under the stars?
I have recovered from the trauma
caused by the first night and shall
not soon forget the pleasure I found
at the second performance. Congra-
tulations to everyone who shared in
the production. You can be proud in-
deed! As old Shakespeare himself
might have said (in fact he did say
it), "All's well that ends well

East Carolina College is a co-educational college

purpose of giving young men and women training
that will enable them to earn a Bachelor of Science,
Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Music, or a Master
Arts degree. The physical plant of the college

includes stud-ents from nearly all of North Carolina s
100 counties and adjoining states.

In the article by Bob Johnson in
last week's EAST CAROLINIAN in-
titled Organizations Prefer Freedom,
the following errors were printed:
Error"At least two organizations
are asking the SGA to cut them
CorrectionNo organization has
asked the SGA to cut them free.
ErrorEach student in his four
years pays $528.00 in activity fees
to support the SGA we could save
CorrectionEach student pays
$132.00 in activity fees to support
all the entertainment programs on
campus Including the Playhouse, The
EAST CAROLINIAN, The BUCCA-
NEER, YMCA, YWCA, College
Union, Campus Radio, Productions
Committee (Kiss Me Kate), Identi-
fication Card System, Handbook,
Cheerleaders, Opera Theatre, The
Rebel, and many more. Getting rid of
the SGA would not save any of this
money but would just mean that the
students would no longer have the
right and privilege of deciding
through their committies, how the
activity fee would be spent.
ErrorCharlie Dyson threatened
the EAST CAROLINIAN with re-
moving all their funds if they didn't
print his spite sheet.
CorrectionThere is no officer in
the SGA with the power to do inch
a thing even if he so desired.
Another year practically gone and
students are vigorously stashing
clothes and memories into suitcases
and battered boxes. Thoughts con-
cerning beach trips and lazy times
are, innermost in their minds. For-
gotten are the unusual E.C.C. hap-
penings which have made our col-
lege an enjoyable as well as an edu-
What has occurred this year worth
remembering? Well, let's look back.
There's the athletic program. In
basketball and football we managed
to end the season with an excellent
record. Considering the number of
supporters who spent their precious
time and energy clapping at the
games, this was indeed a feat for
Then along came the shirtless
boys who won the national collegiate
swimming title. The students were
so happy about this accomplishment
that nobody showed to witness the
team receiving the winning trophy.
In our summer sports, tennis, golf,
track, and baseball, the heroes have
also performed before a practically
empty house. Oh well, at least the
letter-men are proud of themselves.
The BUCCANEER staff composed
of approximately ninety of EC's
"gung-ho' workers crowded their
wits together and produced a 400
page annual. Many hoars were spent
preparing this memory book, io that
By PAT HARVEY
the students could flip through this
precious book in twenty minutes,
then voice their unfavorable com-
ments concerning its contents. But
one can mark this down in his note-
book as nothing but human nature.
So . . .
"Death of A Salesman" was given
this year and according to some very
reliable sources, it was considered
to be one of the most professional
plays ever presented here.
The playhouse gave several plays
this year, some good, some fair.
Several experienced actors are leav-
ing to pursue their dreams as a ca-
reer. Which brings to mind that the
playhouse is losing several of its
members and the percentage gained
this year is not enough to equal its
loss. There are many people who
would enjoy theatre work, but use
the practical excuse that "we dont
have the time Unfortunately, they
do not realise that the experience is
The biggest deal that went through
was the establishment of sororities,
which really hit campus with a bang.
Eight sororities have popped up and
have done everything from selling
sandwiches to painting benches. So-
rorities have made their bid and are
expected to be an even more im-
portant part of our campus life next
Have we ever stopped to realise
that out of a college of nearly 4000
students, only about 200 are inter-
ested enough in their college to work
for it. College is not just a place to
attend class through the week and
dash home for the weekend. College
can be fun, as well as educational.
"Next year things will. be differ-
ent" is one of the most trite lines
in our college lingo. Predictions come
and go each year; some hit, some
miss. Nevertheless, it's fun to try.
Predictions for '6960:
(1) Wells will shock the frat men
and head an excellent SGA.
(2) Another issue concerning ber-
muda shorts will hit the papers, but
again will be vetoed.
(3) The next campus check will
catch more seniors than freshmen.
(4) The REBEL will be bigger and
better, because the staff will be big-
ger - and better.
(5) Next year's musical comedy
will have a more experienced east.
(6) Students will accept "Hue as
a mascot, rather than a waster-of-
(7) Bubba Driver will be missed la
(8) Sororities will double in mem-
bership, but will not go national.
(9) EC enrollment will increase by
about 400 students.
(10) Rainy days will increase also.
This is the time of the school year when
I've just about run out of everythingciga-
rettes, money, patience, motivation, (for
studying, that is,) and ideas for a column.
For the past year, I have assumed the
form of a columnist; that is, I have, for nine
months, shed my academic armor periodically,
and entered the EAST CAROLINIAN office
to sit at my typewriter and pound my thought-
into little black letters for publication in thi
corner of the paper.
Now, with my last fingernail chewed
back to the knuckle, with my ash tray running
over with exhausted Camels, and with my
thoughts that are as well organized as a Cuh
Scout pack at a panty-raid, I confess that I
am mentally bankrupt.
At this time of year, all I can do is re-
mininsce. It doesn't seem to have been eight
