A capacity audience of over 1,000 people jammed the Houston Room to hear Ginsberg recite a travelogue of beat poetry during the University Festival, below. Right, Stan Ratliff meditates, preparing himself for the Attic Theatre's revisionist drama, "Quotations from Mao-Tse-Tung." 78 UH Festival Focuses on Far East; Ginsberg Chants to Capacity Crowd Focusing on the Western World's involvement with the Far East and the consequent Far Eastern influences on our lives, the fifth University Festival took students on a Far Eastern tour by way of guest lectures, discussions, art exhibits, drama presentations and a film series. Dr. Alan Watts, noted English author and philosopher, spoke on "Models of the Universe: a comparison of the cosmos—as an artifact, a drama and an organism," in the festival's opening event. Included on the festival's agenda were Nalina Rujhu's demonstration of Indian dance techniques, a lecture by Fulbright Scholar Dr. Richard Fontera on contemporary Indian politics, Dr. Paul Baker's discussion of Eastern influences on "Brecht's Caucasian Chalk Circle" and the Attic Theatre's presentation of "Quotations from Mao Tse-Tung." Drawing the largest crowd and the most response during the festival was the guest appearance of famed "beat" poet Allen Ginsberg with his repertoire of poetry and chants. 79
