Annual Formal with Marsha Ball Saturday hree ART OF THE A T T E R Here we go again baby with the bathwater JUST COMMON SENSE The commodity mentioned above seems to be in short supply these days Oh I suppose I shouldnt say these since for more centuries than not we descendants of Adam and Eve have given great validity to Shake speares puckish line What fools these mortals be And a vast number seem to be located in the august bodies on the Potomac Case in point Lets do away with the National Endowment for the Arts altogether rather than carefully monitor its grants but KEEP wasting BILLIONS of dollars in lob bied defense spending many items of which become obsolete in far less than a After all money spent on people to make music instead of war to create beautiful art to provide meaningfii dialogue in theatre and things just serve to pro voke thought alleviate stress and make us look at each other with new understanding in our eyes Who wants that On the other hand lets spend exorbitant amounts on small pieces of hardware to build Elizabeth Elliott the structures of defense that sit in huge hangars and warehouses in case of until the zoom of technological advances soon makes them useless Smart ALL OF IT NEEDS CAREFUL STEW ARDSHIP Every household in this coun try would be bankrupt if it paid so little attention to its operating budget National defense is a must it be so debtincreasingly wasteful The Arts are essential not only for the growth of our humaneness but also for the positive results of creative problemsolving Does that mean we should grant pieces of work that are obscene or insulting to religious beliefs I dont think so Is is too simplistic to not throw away the bad and keep the good Do we really have to toss the poor baby out AGAIN LETS TAKE PBS Id sure hate to do without it Masterpiece Theatre Covert Bailey Bill Moyers Sesame Street concerts by Pavarotti Domingo and Carrera and ALL kinds of brainstimulating programs I confess I dont know if PBS could survive on private sector funding alone They say it cant The new forces on the hill say it can Its scary to take the risk of public broad casting going belly up to prove a point It may seem naive to suggest it but couldnt some sort of failsafe measure be imple mented whereby the NEA could make up the shortfall AFTER any PBS subsidiary had made every documented effort to pro vide its own total revenue I dont have a degree in Economics or Political Science and it may take those to confuse issues but its devoutly to be wished that Objective Practicality replace the Control Syndrome WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY You make a mistake if you think this mes sage comes from a Democrat I have a healthy suspicion of labels and insist upon marching even with canes to my own drummer And I was raised in a very conser vativeNew England family Specific honest my cup of tea And neither party has a comer on that market Dont wait until our quality of life is diminished to the necessities of mere exis tence LIFE requires more than bread Let your voice be heard firmly Write your representatives in the next few days BEFORE they vote to abolish things that are precious to us That line from the old folk song Where Have All the Flowers Gone keeps running through my will they ever will they ever learn Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist for the HeraldZeitung writing exclusively about the
