LI LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1959 NO. 24 Unmacht Captures Senate Spot FUN TIMi:—Dr. Paul Saltman, right, joins quizmaster Groucho Marx and the professor's quiz panner Kay Contonwine, after appearance on quiz show "You Bet Your Life" Wednesday night. After an ex-ctonge of quips, Saltman and his partner won $500 by answering questions in the category of plants, animals, and birds. Saltman Enjoys Personal Appearance on Quiz Show Science Professor Claims Marx's You Bet Your Life Not Fixed Are all television quiz shows fixed? After appearing on Grouch Marx’s “You Bet Your Life” Wednesday night, SC faculty member Dr. Paul Saltman can assure you that they’re not. Dr. Saltman, associate professor of biochemistry and contes- I nutrition, was a guest lant on Mai-xs telexision show and reports that although his appearance climaxed a great deal of research by the show's writers, there were no bribes. “This is evidenced by the fact that my partner and I won only $600 and missed the answer to the jackpot question.” he said. Not Rigged Although the questions and actual quiz program part were' not rigged, Dr. Saltman explained that Marx had a thor-. ough knowledge of the contestant's interests before the program was filmed. Marx had spotted Dr. Saltman on another television show and thought he would be an interesting contestant. The show’s writers compiled an extensive file on Dr. Saltman which included reports of two personal interviews. "Many people try to get on the show for a big break into show business or to sell something, but I appeared on the program merely to have a good time,” he said. Sells Hat* An example of someone who had something to sell, was Dr. Salfman’s nartner on last night’s progr.m. Kay Cantonwine, an SC graduate, who sells novelty hats. “Most of the people on the program wore very interested In winning money,’’ “he explained, but hr did not place himself in that group. Dr. Saltman and his partner successfully answered two out of four questions and guessed the secret word “book” to win $600 In the category of biology. Miss Question The pair missed the big question “who w as the sculpter of the Statue of Liberty?” The answer is Frederic Auguste Bartholdi. “Marx is very quick witted, and I have great admiration for the work that the show’s staff is doing.” Dr Saltman commented when questioned about the show’s worth. “Instead of using large money questions to gain popularity, the show re|: i upon humor and actual p<r<u’ rity,” lie added. f’<*nr of Fun Dr. S-liman reflected that bis hour with Marx was an enjoy-ah1'1 one and he had a “wonderful time on the show.” In the near future he will appear cm SC graduate Jack Link-let ter s show “On the Go,” whore he will discuss nutrition. Dr. Saltman ha«; had extensive rxperience with television and radio and has 1ft half hour shows and 13 films to his credit. TV Station To Welcome Participation KUSC-TV will open its doors to audience participation this afternoon when the university TV outlet presents “Informal,” at 2:15 in Studio “C”, AHF.

Cutschara, Navy; and Maj. A. L. Oppelt, Air Force. Buddy Farn-an is the program director. “The show is intended to clarify the prevalent confusion about what the 1A college graduate can do about fulfilling his military service and obligation,” said Gannon. “We will touch on basic specialized and technical training. Officer Cadet School possibili* ties, active duty, reserve programs and deferment and exemption possibilities,” he said. Cables Help Team Spirit All organizations are asked to send telegrams to the football team before Saturday’s Stanford game, said Don Simonian. worthy grand master of Skull and Dagger. “The Stanford Game is a part of our ‘Operation Telegram’ program,” he said. Telegrams must be sent by 10 a.m. tomorrow. “The team really appreciates this student interest,” Simonian said. “Wally Karabian, the Kappas. the Thetas, the AChiOs, Ihe ChiOs. the Knights and th» Amazons must he thanked for their consj'Utwit support.” English Club Will Discuss 0 Casey Play The work of Sean O’Casey will be discussed today by members of the English Club at their regular meeting at noon today in the YWCA. “The Plough and the Stars” is the play to be discussed, as the j group continues the topic of the beginnings of modern drama. James Duroin, English professor and sponsor of the club, will lead the meeting. Plans for a theater party to j Eugene O’Neill’s "The Ice Man Cometh” are being completed, said Priscilla Rockwell, chairman of the English Club. A date is being set for the end of the month. The drama is playing at Hollywood Center Theater. Publication of Profiles. English department’s literary publication, began this week, Miss Rockwell said.

Miss Rockwell said that the copies of the first and second issues of Profiles are still available in the Eng ish Office. “Any studeni interested in obtaining numbers one or two of volume one for their personal files must do so before the end of this month.” she said. the the Bershad Wins Frosh Honors By LARRY BISHOP Ken Unmacht will fill the vacant ASSC senator-at-large seat after defeating his opponent, Ron Sherman, by a vote cf nearly two to one in yesterday’s run-off elections. Steve Bershad and Judy Crumrine emerged victorious in the freshman race, defeating Dick Messer and Faye Henderson by narrow margins. They will assume the duties of freshman president and vice president, respectively. A smiling Unmacht received the news of his victory almost immediately alter the votes were tabulated; he was with a small congregation of stuasnts gathered out-e'de cf the IBM office when Elections Commissioner Mar-jcrie :-I 's:h made the announcement. ‘I can't know what to say, except that I’m very happy,” Unmacht said when he heard the news. Votes Changed ‘‘I know I owe a let to May tor McKinley who swung ame of his votes over to my side,” he added. McKinley narrowly missad the run-off by only three votes in the first election. Ironically, although McKinley's name had been crossed off the run-off ballott, he received three write in votes in the run-off. • Unmacht received 429 votes to Sherman’s 229. The margin increased considerably as the count in the first election was: Unmacht, 359; Sherman, 276 and McKinl^, 273. Freshman Race The freshman elections were completely opposite tb the indication given in the primary election. Steve Bershad barely slipped past Dick Messer—149 to 138. Messer had 130 votes to Bershad’s 117 in the "primary” elections. Similarly, the defeat of Miss Henderson by Miss Crumrine—131to 146—was opposite to the 104 to 85 edge that Miss Henderson held in the primary race. Bershad said that he will attempt to make the freshman presidency an "office of prestige.” Open Council He also expressed a desire to see the "open council” system work for the freshman class. The run-off election was necessary because' no candidate received a majority vote in the first election. Alan Well and Anne Smoyer were the only two definitely elected the first time around. They will fill the posts of independent men’s representative and education president, respectively. The independent men’s representative race took an opposite turn. Last spring, Well had been defeated by Tony Mendez, but the election was nullified because Well’s name had been misspelled on the ballot. Vacant Posts The offices of foreign student’s representative and veteran’s representative remain vacant as there were no candidates for those posts. The election of a new senator-at-large seat was ap-iero.ad to the freshman elections this fall- because the 2 :uor holding that position, Joe Nida, did not enroll at he university this fall. Nida was called to his home in Michigan because of illness in his family. Elections Commissioner Hirsch reminded the candidates that all campaign materials must be taken down by 4 p.m. today. She had no other comment on the election except a deep sigh of relief that it was all over. h ■' .'Wi \T ; * i j r \ ? 4- THE WINNER—Ken Unmacht shows his elation after hearing announcement that he had emerged a decisive victor in his senatorial battle against Ron Sherman. In the runoff elections conducted yesterday, Unmacht received a healthy 429 student votes as compared to 229 for Sherman. In the freshman class elections, Steve Bershad came out on top in the freshman presidential race with 149 votes. Neyman Will Discuss Life s Contests, Kudos Most young men and women cannot escape from participating in athletic, education or beauty contests, said the Rev. Clinton A. Neyman, university chaplain, while discussing the 11 a.m. Sunday Worship Service. "Life itself is an unending contest for all men and living things. With the end of Dating Panel To Convene Ella Lou Sharp. 1958 Homecoming queen, will join Freshmen Karen Kelley and Pat Fry in a panel on dating and courtship at noon today. The SC coeds will speak at the regular meeting of Latter Day Saints students at the LDS Institute, 1002 West 36th st. The girls will reply to queries from the group, concerning dating, their conceptions of the "ideal” man, and other problems of college life.

It was a triumph of music last night as a cast of breathtak-ingly excellent singers made a magnificent hit in the opening performance of "Carousel.” Rudy Vejar, starring as Billy Bigelow, sang with a voice of soaring lyric power. Marilyn Kates as Julie Jordan displayed an equally beautiful contralto tone that brought grace to Richard Rodgers’ entrancing music. Whenever she came on as Net-th Fowler, Sharon Bliss dominated the stage with the strongest, most polished, and when called for, most dramatic voice on the Bovard stage. Murphy Was Delight Melissa Murphy also continually delighted the large audience with her captivatinglv fun-nv portrayal of Carrie Pipper-idge, the naive girl who ends up with nine children. And we could practically smell the fish on Mr. Snow as Richard Miailovich made his role the funniest characterization in the musical and sang some of the lilt in" sones of “Carousel” in a pleas:n", though light, tenor voiee. Join Winnaman played a fine hea\ • s Chigger Craigin, sang effe ively if not very under--.tan-’ My and added a great amoiMif of humor to the delightful and dramatic story. Mu^cal director Hans Beer had ts'* show orchestra performing ’/indy well, and the accompaniment was never ob- trusive but complemented the singing and acting almost perfectly throughout the show. It was also a dancing show, with almost everyone bouncing merrily around the stage in excellent and astonishingly smooth choreography by Joan Tewkesbury. The opening scene, during the "Carousel Waltz,” was a bit confusing bccause of lack of focus, and featured a rather crude sideshow dance. But, presumably that is how carnival dances are supposed to be. Stunning Dances As the show continued, however, a stunning sequence of gay and sumptuous dances were performed with even Miss Bliss and Mrs. Murphy doing a bouncing jig to "June Is Busting Out All Over.” In the "Hornpipe” ballet with all the sailors and women. Judy Linslev performed the best and most hilariously burlesque dance of the show. The “Carnival Ballet” was also interestingly danced, (hough Ma-dra Sanders seemed a bit unsure of herself dancing as Louise Bigelow. Peter Ronson danced pleasantly with Miss Sanders, Marilyn Tosatti and the carnival troupe in the sequence. Richard Anderson and the rest of the Snow children, recruited from the little friends of Miss Tewkesbury, were delightful In their coquettish dances. Director John E. Blankenchip did a marvelous job in putting together in such a short time a production that was in general nearly perfect. With a little more prctice it could be corn-more practice it could be com-tion. Katherine Franichevich's lighting was particular^ effective in the waterfront death scene, which was staged in solid, stark dramatic forms and lighted with a deep and luminous green. Richard Anderson’s costuming was garish and bold for the carnival dancers; colorful and humorously antique for the New England villagers. Acting Lagged The acting in “Carousel” did not come up to the impressive level of the singing, though it generally carried the flow of the story quite well. Vejor was a believable roustabout, however, and Miss Bliss a properly motherly lady, Helen Campus an effective carousel owner, Mrs. Mullin, Richard Lang, Jr., a stilted Mr. Bascombe, and Miss Kates a sweet though somewhat wooden Julie. the contest said. Chaplain Neyman will deliver the sermon, "Contests and Kudos” at the services in Bovard Auditorium. "Athletic contests are important, but their importance is not truly measured by the number of spectators who pass through the ticket turnstiles nor by. the vociferousness of the cheering sections,” he said. Flippant Quip "Anyone seeking to achieve the highest values of athletic contests will denounce the flippant quip, ‘Winning is not the main thing, it is the only thing,' ” he added. Legendary Troy was conquered and destroyed over a prolonged contest to recover the first Helen of Troy, Chaplain Neyman explained. "Our own Helens of Troy are surely as beautiful as she and certainly wiser. They are never tiMe harbingers of misfortune,” he said. Los Angeles proudly claims the title of Sports Capital of the World and athletic teams from the university have significantly contributed to the record which supports that claim, he said. Only Spectators “But in everyday life, we cannot escape being participants in many contests,” he explameu. “However, we risk more than we realize if in the most important contests we think we can be only spectators or even members of the cheering section.” "Finally, there is the totally inescapable contest for our ultimate loyalties and our personal moral and spiritual commitments,” the chaplain said. "As for rewards, do they matter? They are there and they are valuable, to be earned in proportion to the meaningfulness of the contest,” he concluded. Panel Reviews India's Neutral Foreign Policy Nehru Puts New Values on China The free world would gain nothing if India changed her basic foreign policy of neutrality, members of an SC international relations panel agreed yesterday. Such basic changes are not indicated by recent actions of the Indian government, however, said panelist Dr. Theodore Chen, chairman of the Department of Aisiatic Studies. Dr. Chen added. “Although India has not exhibited any basic changes, Indian Prime Minister Nehru has come to certain modifications of methods of applying the neutralist policy.” "Since Red China violated her 1954 pledge to India by restricting Indian trade in Tibet, Nehru has made a new evaluation of Communist China.” he said. Red Menace According to Dr. Ross Berkes. director of the School of International Relations. India has not seen the communist menace as the West sees it. "For that reason, of course, we would prefer a change in India’s policy.” Dr. Berkes said. “But, if India changed her policy it would be against the wishes of most Indian people.” He said an Indian move toward the West would cause a .“lapse in social integration” in India, making her more vulnerable to Communist expansion. Health Effect So far India's policy ha$ h?1 a healthy effect on the United States, Berkes added, having “held back some of the more ex-huberant leaders of neutral powers.” A more definite stand toward Communist aggression by India was asked by panelist Carl Wahren, international relations student from Sweden. “India would regain some lost prestige if she would make a clear statement of such things as the 1956 Hungarian incidents,” he said. Sterile Approach Wahren pointed out that such action would not necessitate India's yielding her neutrality- by joining a Western pact. "But India’s policy "of passity” is a “sterile approach.” he said. Another panelist, IR student Peter Lauwreys, contended that India’s main problem is still feeding her four million people. Local Funds, Scholarships Aid Students Bible Meet To Be Held A quarterly meeting of the i'nthe comedy business Mrs. I Pacific Coast section o( the Na-her voice didn’t tional Association of Biblical instructors will be held on the SC Murphy, though project so well as the other singers’, stood out as the best actress in the musical. Miailovich showed the best interpretation of a part as the prolific Enoch Snow. Tom Costello did a delightfully warm portrayal of the Starkeep-er and Dr. Seldon, the graduation speaker. Bob Biheller. Vic Barrera and Robert Pierik also kept the audience laughing. The group of girjs and the fishermen and sailors also sang and danced very prettily. “Carousel'’ also plays tonight, tomorrow, Nov. 6 and 7. campus today, announced Dr. J. Wesley Robb, chairman of the department of religion. The department will be host to the biblical instructors with an afternoon session featuring Richard Bredenberg of Occidental College reading a paper "On Improving College Bible Teaching: A Survey.” "Wie regular business meeting will be held at 7 p.m. and Douglas Eadie of Redlands will present a paper. “Faith and History in the Theology of Emil Brunner.

Science Professor Claims Marx's You Bet Your Life Not Fixed
