Please vote for the covered pool in the Bond Election. Sincerely, Don Bedford Rock should help itself I was asked by some sincere civil liberations if I would help them defend the right of record companies to produce rock records with raunchy lyrics. When I declined the invitation, one of them said: ‘ But you’re against censorship, aren’t you?” Most of the time, yes. But it’s always been my policy that if some creep is determined to make a buck by producing or selling something that is obscene, disgusting, offensive and of no social artistic value, they should have to fight for the right to do so. And without my help. That’s what’s been happening to some elements of the recording industry. They are being hounded and harassed by a Senate committee, wives of congressmen, the PT A and other influential groups. These groups want to bully the record companies into putting labels on jackets that would warn purchasers that they are buying sleaze. The idea is to protect children from hearing songs that hail the joys of incest, sadism, masochism, suicide. rape and other subjects that inspire some of today’s lyricists. I doubt if such labeling would help. More likely, it would make it easier for youthful record-buyers to do their shopping. They wouldn’t have to worry about inadvertently buying a record that sounds good and has something worthwhile to say. Nor do I believe that members of Congress or any other politicians should start deciding what people should read or hear. And, so far, nobody has proposed any laws that would prevent record companies from producing junk They just want the junk labeled as junk. But that’s been enough to cause great anguish at some of the record companies and bring cries of outrage from some of their better-known stars. Which is fine. Nobody ever guaranteed that the path of the creative artist would be smooth and easy. Mozart had to deal with royal patrons who were demanding and restrictive. Beethoven started losing his hearing while still a young man. So, it isn’t unreasonable to expect a few recording executives and musicians to face some adversity while they strive for the artistic fulfillment that comes with producing songs that describe the joys of getting it on with one’s sister or schoolteacher. Actually, nothing is going to come out of all this. Any new laws trying to censor musical lyrics would probably be shot down by the courts. But I see nothing wrong with somebody putting the heat on the record companies and musical groups that can’t find anything more interestng to yowl about than the joys of rape. That’s one of the useful, informal systems of checks and balances in our society. Somebody writes a creepy song, hoping to make enough money to buy a California house with a swimming pool and hot-and-cold-runnmg groupies. Some record executive punches his desk calculator and sees the song increasing his bottom line. Then along comes the bluenosed ladies, forcing the songwriter and the record executive to hire lawyers to defend their right to be public nuisances. Eventually, the creeps will win their battle. But they have to sweat a little and spend some money on lawyers. To the Editor In response to Mr Bradberry's article “The Right Teacher Can Make a Difference" included in the October sc rid edition of the New Braunfels Herald Zeitung. we. as members -f New Braunfels High Sc hool, have this to say Thanks. Thanks for standing behind your children and wanting the best possible facilities in which to learn. We are extremely enthusiastic to be backed so strongly by our superintendent. Mr. Bradberry. and of course, by our parents; for without your support. New Braunfels High School would not have the history of excellence that it has Looking back upon our past years as Unicorns and the many years preceeding those, we find that in almost any organization sponsored by the school, there have been award-winning performances by groups and individuals alike. The Student Council at NBHS is one of the best in the state. This is proven by their many activities involving not only our high school, but also our community. Their latest activity is The Golden Unicorn project. The Mighty Urn' rn Band, in the fifty-fourth year, is proceeding to win yet another sweepstakes award - to make it the twenty-fifth (consecutively). The athletic department, including volleyball, football. track, basketball, baseball, tennis and more, has attended state com-peitinn by mastering District and Regional competitions. Hie ROK department has achieved high ranking; sn c rnpeitive a< tivitiesand has produced highly qualified cadets. The Mon *« era Dr ll Team also has received excellence awards for their dancing abilities. A former Monocera u eel lier dancing experience to qualify her as a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader The NBHS Choir department ha- helped develop students with vocal talents to reach the District. Regional and State level of competition; and has encouraged several to pursue their interests after graduating. As with these groups, many other excel in their individual areas, thus upholding the Unicom tradition. In conclusion, we totally agree with Mr Bradberry that education is more than learning facts. He has entered into a district which already provides, as he provided for his other students before, the best program and directors-sponsors available. However, it is not only the instructor that makes the program what it is. True, the instructor instigates and encourages the program, but without the pride, confidence and desire of the students to be their very best, the program will not work. In NBHS we have both factors and therefore have been and will be the best we can be. We feel as freshmen through seniors that we have been given more than that chance Mr. Bradberry wrote of to be our best in any activity. It does not take until graduation to realize why excellence is so important at NBHS. It is part of the pride of that Ix>ng Blue lune. Thanks again for your support. Signed : Nancy Kadlecek.
