Contemplations & Reflections (with Toni Matulis)

Maroon & Gold

Bloomsburg State College (PA) - April 14, 1967

3 Times 3

The coffee house has put in a real good bid this weekend for some genuinely solid entertainment. They've contracted "The Wayward Three" of Delaware Valley College for shows at 9:15, 10:30,and 11:45 tomorrow nite. Be sure to drop Bye The Way and take a listen. Some waiters are needed for Saturday's bash, too, so don't be shy--drop bye.

The Rat Patrol

By now everyone's surely heard about it and the cheese has been molding and feeding the largest increase in rat population since the famine of '31 for some two weeks. So why talk about it? I'll tell ya why! Because as a result of that episode in history, known to all historians as the Great Espy Train Disaster of '67 some three dozen of Waller Hall's second floor commandoes shall be immortalized. The tale of how they braved the elements, vicious enemy convoy trains, and the vanguard of ferocious rodents to rescue some 270 pounds of cheddar cheese from oblivion (and things worse) shall be retold for countless generations. Being humble souls, these brave warriors would desire no praise for their feat--suffice it to say: they went, they saw, they...ate. And many hunger mouths were fed. (C.A.R.E. has been bested!)

Exhibiting Expo

Due to space limitations our Roving Reporter's first-hand report of EXPO'67 cannot be presented herein. However, many pictures were taken, many sights seen, and for anyone interested enough to look behind the portable bulletin-board outside the CGA office, we'll try to start a rotating exhibit of some of the Expo exhibits on the M&G's board. (If we can still get at it--!)

Speak, Oh Zara!!

For anyone who has a little of that rare commodity, called Spare Time, or, for those who don't have any but want something to do that is a greater learning experience than doing the meaningless assignments that students sometimes encounter, drop by the library and pick up a cop of Nietzsche's Thus Spake Zaratustra. It is like a cool man's bible--it won't particularly repulse you atheists, either. To quote: "Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the Superman--a rope over an abyss." Guess that some ropes are a little thinner than other or something... It definitely gets even better as it goes along. A must for all KKK members, student revolt leaders, Sunday school teachers, and everyone who has more sense than to with to "inherit the Earth."

Ring of Fire

Once there was a smoldering little grass fire on the country club hill. Time passes--like some two hours. Then there are six fire engines (5 red and 1 white), one police car one fire police car, seven million spectator cars, two spectator Hondas, two spectator kids chasing bugs around the third hole, and some very amused spectators watching the six fire engines watch a little grass fire smolder away for four hours. It's a good thing they get paid by the hour--think of the overtime for six fire engines at the burning of an outhouse or at a hotdog roast...

Thurs. Night Movies

The English Club has begun a program of very entertaining and very educational movies each Thursday eve. The first week's offering was a two-reel presentation of Hemingway; last week was a series of two films on Thornton Wilder and his play Our Town; future weeks include films on people like W.B. Yeats, Robert Frost, etc... Held in the library projection room when some other organization does not assert its size and chase the English Club to Science Hall.
