intestines two days after the ope tion stemmed from liver
disease, they said.

been reported in satisfactory co dition earlier in the day

Surveyor 7 on Course for Landing Tonight
PASADENA, Calif. Surveyor 7 sped toward the
moon yesterday on a course so accurate scientists said they
might not have to make a final steering maneuver.
A decision was expected within several hours.
Flight controllers at Jet Propulsion Laboratory made
a major course change Sunday, aiming the instrument
loaded spacecraft closer to the rugged crater Tycho, near
the soutlicentral edge of the lunar disk.
Surveyor 7 is due to land tonight with a television
camera; a small scoop to dig trenches as deep as 18 inches;
a device to analyze soil with radiation, and magnets to
The mission of the final unmanned U.S. lunar lander
is purely scientific-designed to tell if there is any signifi

Continuing Cold Wave Hits All But Florida
Numbing cold hung on through the northeastern sec

New Appeal for Aid to Nonpublic Schools
HARRISBURG A Philadelphia delegate appealed
yesterday a decision that would bar Pennsylvania's Con

on Convention President Raymond J. Broderick's ruling
that the proposal goes beyond the convention's limited
jurisdiction to revise only specific articles of the Constitu
The vote was delayed until tomorrow, however, to
give delegates an opportunity to study both Quiles' pro
posal and the legal opinion Broderick used to support his
decision to reject it.

Collegian, USG Reporter
"This campus is 'dead," Undergraduate
Student Government president Jeffrey Long
charged last night. "The University student
doesn't care about the Vietnam war because
he feels it doesn't affect him."
In a recent interview, Long opposed this
apathy and pointed out the definite effects
that the draft situation could have on a male
student's career or marriage plans. USG hopes
to arouse student concern about Vietnam in
a debate, "We Should Be in Vietnam,"
Jan. 22. Because of the number of potential
servicemen attending the University, Long
feels it is vital for the students to voice their
opinions on the war. He called for all stu
dents to stop conforming to an apathetic at
titude and take a definite stand on. Vietnam
and other issues, both on the University and

Nine Soloists Perform
As each Aria Group
A group of nirt: "master musicians,"
each world-famous in his own right, will
open the winter season of the University
Artists Series at 8:30 p.m. Friday in Schwab.
The Bach Aria Group, directed by Wil
liamn.H. Scheide, will perform selections from
cantatas Bach composed for the Lutheran
churches of Leipzig. Though this large body
of music is acknowledged to be Bach's major
work, it was rarely performed because music
ensembles no longer include both vocal and
insf - umental soloists.
Tickets will be available free to stu
dents from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the
Hetzel Union Building desk and will be
distributed 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. - 10-12. They
will go on sale at 9 a.m. Jan. 10.
The group • has .drawn applause and
standing-room only crowds here and abroad
since it was. formed by Scheide in 1946. The
only organization of its kind in the United
States, it has made • many recordings and
earned such adjectives as "extraordinary,"
"magnificent" and "superlative" from critics.
In each of the series and duets they
perform. outstanding instrumental work is
on equal footing with vocal solos. The works
are taken from over 650 pieces scored for
combinations of five instruments and four
_ A major intention of the group, accord
ing to. founder and Bach authority Scheide,
is to remove the modern cleavage between
vocal and instrumental music and thus "cor
rect the most serious error found in modern
Bach performances." •
A Collegian Committee on Accuracy and Fair Play,
appointed to hear all comments and complaints concern
ing The Daily Collegian, assumes its duties beginning with
Serving on the committee are Charles H. Brown, pro
fessor of journalism; Faith Tanney, Association of Women
Students president, and Harvey Reeder, sophomore class
president. All are members of Collegian, Inc., publisher
of The Daily Collegian, and were appointed by John D.
Vairo, president of the board of directors.
Establishment of the committee was authorized at the
board's • Nov. 1 meeting with appointments to be an
nounced by the president. The committee is to function in
a fact finding and advisory capacity and will review all
comments submitted in writing through the office of
Collegian adviser Donna S. Clemson, 20 Sackett.
Names of the committee members will be published
daily in the Collegian masthead on page 2 and readers are
urged to avail themselves of the opportunity to voice
opinions through this official channel. Identification will
be required on all communications with the committee on
Accuracy and Fair Play, but all information will be kept
confidential, Vairo explained.
It is the board's feeling that closer communication
.with its reading public students, faculty, administrators
and townspeople will aid the Collegian in expanding
and improving its service as a daily newspaper.

UNIVERSITY PARK, PA., TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 9, 1968
Long Assails Apathy
Also iscusses USG Action
On Ritenour, Parking Lots
Confers on Parking Lois
Concerning new action taken on old
legislation, the Administration Awareness
Committee wants to improve the parking
lot situation by having all girls park close to
the dormitories, Long announced. Before
definite changes can be made, however, USG
must contact the Association of Women Stu
dents to inquire about the possibility of such
a proposal. According to Long, the installa
tion of lights in the east parking lots behind
Curtin Rd. has been delayed but not can
celled. Because of the war, the copper wire
needed for the lights is dificult to purchase.
Another problem which was examined
This intention necessitated the gathering
of nine individually brilliant performers,
Scheide's success is witnessed by the Boston
Post critic who wrote, "Nine first rank solo
artists took part in this superlative perform
ance of some of the very best examples of
Bach at his peak."
Members of the group are Samuel Baron,
flute; Robert Bloom, oboe; Norman Farrow,
bass-baritone; 'Maureen Forrester, alto; Ber
nard Greenhouse, cello; Richard Lewis, tenor;
Lois Marshall, soprano; Oscar Shumsky, vio
lin, and Paul Ulanowsky, piano.
The music itself has been called the most
tuneful that Bach write. The arias, remark
able for their beauty, vigor, melody and
varie,ty, were described as "music without
equal or any near parallel" by Paul Hume
of the Washington Post. In his book on Bach,
Albert Schweitzer wrote that "in compari
son with the cantatas, everything else that
Bach has done appears as hardly more than
Howard Taubman of the New York
Times summed up the critical reaction to
the Group: "Among the enterprises that
help to give New York a musical life in depth
the Bach Aria Group is one of the most
valuable. The Bach Aria Group serves Bach
in a manner that serves us all."
The next presentation in the Series will
be the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of
London Jan. 23 in Rec Hall. Also scheduled
for this term are the Alvin Ailey American
Dance Theatre, Feb. 3, and pianist Philippe
Entremont, Mar. 1.
Theatrical Newcomer Finds
New Role As Playwright
Until a year ago, pretty young Michele
Peruzzi had never even seen a live profes
sional theatre production.
Last term, however, she made her debut
as a playwright, with the 'production of her
Biblical satire, "And His Name Shall Be
Called," by the University's 5 O'Clock Thea
A 19-year-old hazel-eyed sophomore in
theatre arts from Rochester, Pa., Miss Peruz
zi calls her one-act vignette a "subtle inter
pretation of Biblical legend."
"It starts with Adam and Eve and works
up to the present, presenting a satirical pic
ture of life, at times funny and 'camp,' at
other times very serious," she explains.
The 5 O'Clock Theatre is a program
devised 18 years ago by the University's
Department of Theatre Arts.. It gives 'stu
dents the opportunity to write, produce, di
rect and act in one-act productions, usually
no longer than 30 minutes.
Miss Peruzzi , says she got the idea for
her play from a discussion on religion with
one of her classmates.
"It came to me. like a brainstorm," she
recalls. "Something inside of me said 'go', and
I started working on it last summer, finish
ing it at home. Religion has always been
important to me, and the play represents
my own interpretations of the idea.
"Names are not mentioned in the play,
but it becomes quite obvious who the charac7
ters are even though the whole thing is done
in, modern dress."
A 1966 graduate of Rochester High
School, Michele says she has always been
last term was the new charges for patients at
Ritenour Health Center. Long said the state
wold have to give the Univ - ersity, more money
before the Administration could take any
action. "We have decided not to concentrate
our efforts on Ritenour," Long announced.
"It seems to be something . that is not going
to be resolved for a while."
In connection with an all-out effort to
encourage discussion of national issues such
as Vietnam, Long supports USG involve
