Transcript Poetry to Jazz Highlights Festival Poetry to Jazz highlighted University Festival events. "It was a spirit-lifting, toe-tapping, finger-snapping and totally refreshing hour and half of entertainment," reported The Daily Cougar. Poetry selections ranged from the piercing satirical wit of John Updike's "Superman" to the deeply religious "Ash Wednesday" of T. S. Eliot. Dr. Lee Pryor, English Professor, coordinated the program of eight readers and the jazz group directed by Albert Tucker. At a convocation beginning the Festival, President Hoffman praised the "wholesome ferment" and "free enterprise in ideas." "A university is a place where controversy can and must exist," he said. The "Happening," a spontaneous art form in which several persons underwent actions they felt had artistic merit, became a part of the Festival this year. Sociat change was emphasized by the festival. Lectures, panel discussions, and debates were based on this idea. "Is there a Sexual Revolution?" was discussed by Dr. Lester A. Kirkendahl, a member of the Sex Education Council of the United States. The Speech Department presented an Oxford debate, which employed sarcasm and wit to support the debaters' points. Dr. Joseph Fletcher, a professor of social ethics, and Father George Doher- ty, a professor of theology, held a panel discussion on morality. The Interdisciplinary Honors Club sponsored the third annual Festival. Participants hoped to instill a new vigor in the students' quest for knowledge by allowing students to enlarge academic spheres into realms of their own interest. Dr. Joseph Fletcher, author and professor of social ethics, leads the discussion on "New Morality." Drama students illustrate man's desire to realize the facts concerning his conception and the conception of the universe. The program included weird music and off-beat dialogue. Poetry to Jazz highlights University Festival. Students respond to serious and humorous, mellow and swinging jazzed-up poetry. 50 ■_■____■■______■■ Houstonian photographer Don Brady attempts to capture a unique pose of Poetry to Jazz reader Bob Bonazzi. 51
