as always
survives today’s absorption
in the dictates of living.
The present recedes into vagueness
viewed against the past’s
sharp outline or
the greater iridescence of
the future. Meanwhile,
its abrasive polishes
the boulders of today, whose
facets reflect ourselves.


It springs from words, transmuting
ground-level meaning
into the ethereal. Then words
shed their lackluster eye
and shine with the dawning
of new creation, transcending
the poet, whose virtue
we unwrap
as a child awakened,
no longer speaking
of himself alone.


Like reverie,
invented themes are in
danger. Nor is it the
poet’s task to explore
political repercussions.
Instead, he wakens
the reader to a journey,
who, in a desert, discovers

a bloom, half hidden under
cactus spines, rising to
express his empathy
and inspiration.


Yet, though they
project the inner being,
the poet’s words must
associate in reason, for we
seek a more unanimous alignment.
No matter how fluorescent the
light of imagination
poetry must lead us forward
along a discernible path.
Nostalgia is only to be
avoided by rejoicing
in miracle.

AUGUST 17, ’74

The Pebbles and
Bamm-Bamm Show:
Cheerios. “By the way,
Judy, how was the school
dance?” A hundred
greatest hits of the
’60s and ’70s.


Snik snak: take a break. Black Bob Nolan: “The horses are coming.”

“O.K. boys, get those lines fast.” Black Bob: “Hey, hold it!

Those crates don’t unload there.” Roy: “Unload ’em, boys.”

(Later.) “Roy! Shore glad to see ya!” “You two know each other?”

“Not officially.” “Roy, meet Carlos. Carlos, meet Roy.”

“Here’s your money, Roy.” “There’s your receipt, Carlos.”


“A street-cleaner
writin’ traffic tickets!?!”

“My daughter Pebbles just
happens to be mayor.”

“Use your influence, Fred,
and you’ll push yourself
right in jail.”


He’s ready for a Man’s Breakfast. Say hello to peanuts!

Troops GLPS (Martians). Moss grows on the north side of trees.

Peanuts! Get yer peanuts! Combo Munch. A whole fistful.

Running streams lead to civilization. I’m Buster Brown.

Every good scout has his compass. He’s all dried out!

Let’s get him to MacDonald’s. Remember: Born Free.

Roy: “She’s the one that Carlos wants to marry.” Lady in veil:

“Well, of all the crummy insults!” Fat Albert: “Now you’re what
I call a real soul brother.” The Scene — with Ronnie Kay. Guest star,
Harry Chapin. Diana Ross and “Don’t Knock My Love.” Short napkin
sleeves; shoulder rivets; moon blue coat; knit trousers; skinny belt.

Complete your “look” with well-tailored high-rise baggies.


Scrapiron showed his mettle
at the billiard parlor.

“Knock knock.”

“Who’s there?”


“Olive who?”

“Olive you.”


Ronnie: “If you don’t believe in God, tell me, how does your brother
fly?” Harry: “Tom flies the same way, no . . .” R.K.: “Do all the
members of your family sing?” Harry: “No, some of them are actually
tone deaf.” R.K.: “The song ‘Sniper’ . . . did someone bring that
song to your attention?” H.C.: “No. I realized those political guys —
Sirhan Sirhan, Oswald, Bremer — they all needed to be recognized.”


“You say these kids
ran off with our bike?”
Hey hey hey,
the law is on his way.

“I’m splitin’.”
Burger King — where
kids are king.


Don’t just stand there, go get the other dog. Take the entire family:

with yet.” The Sahara Hotel. Please greet . . . Little Anthony and
The Imperials. I’m on the inside lookin’ out on a world that’s full
of doubt. It’s a very interesting album. The loneliest house on the

The greatest

“Listen, tell me. How do you get two of the best producers in the
business to do sides of a single album?” “Well, first you take a
submachine gun into South Philadelphia . . . no, seriously.” “Say,
how many nights a week do you guys work?” “Oh, gosh, we
work about six nights a week.” “Let’s have a big hand. Nice to have
you with us.” “And how could I ever refuse, Waterloo, Waterloo.”


The Valachi Papers

High Plains Drifter
Alfred’s Frenzy
James Bond: Thunderball
The greatest box
office hits. Now the greatest

May I introduce myself? I’m Kolshak from the Daily Trib. Welcome

There was a cop on the East Side of Chicago back when the town of
Chicago died. When a man named Al Capone made that town his
own. I heard my Momma cry. The sound of battle rang through the
streets of East Chicago. I heard my Momma cry. Yes indeed, there
was no sound at all. My Daddy stepped indoors, and brushed her tears
aside. His kitchen would end up looking like a scene from a cartoon.


I’ve always felt
that chefs and
musical directors

How much longer do we have to wait? There should be some sign
by now. Let’s rate it then. Master Fleet. We have an 85 and a
90. Makes it an 87 1/2. Shelley made me smile, Shelly made me
smile, but the memory of Shelley lingers on. She sets my heart
on fire. A 65 and a 50, and my pen doesn’t work. A 57 1/2. Notice the
crazy math. “Why’s the first one better?” “Moves better.”


Let’s see that
point over again.
Four consecutive breaks
in the second set.
Love-15. Great
forehand down the
alley. That’s long.


The Fresh Face of Martha: she washes with Noxzema every day.
Freddy cared more about his wheels than my legs. Phil was a sports-
man. But now, with David, I use Need. It leaves my legs smoother.
That just-brushed freshness with Dentyne. David and Andy! We’ve
done a few things in L.A., ladies and gentlemen. Say it again, say you
love me again. I’ve heard it before, I’ll hear it some more.

You’re ’bout to go insane, ’cuz your woman’s playin’ game. We’ll

You know I’d like to say just a word about the new open space school,
because we’re going to that more and more in Oklahoma. Its great
expanse . . . you know, there are no walls . . . it tends to make the
child a little nervous. But we need to encourage the child to adjust
to this new open school. And we need to talk to parents and explain it.
Then maybe they can go and talk to the administrators and teachers.


Mick: I think it was my
dad. He had the foresight
to recognize that
right-handers would hit
only against left-handers
and left-handers would hit

More highlights from the Cooperstown Hall of Fame ceremonies after
this message: Chicago. Jack Albertson is the Man, in Chicago and The

of the Week. So it’s deuce. And you can see her strategy right off the

ESCAPADE ’74-’75


Your trip along the
ancient river Rhine
begins in the early morning,
which is no drawback,
since you were cordially
welcomed aboard the
previous evening.

The ship and her crew
from that moment on, have
been at your disposal.


Now we leave Strasbourg,
seat of the Council of Europe,
with its world-famous Cathedral,
its picturesque old
city center known as

“la petite France.” We
sail for several hours down
the Alsatian border.
Already the Black Forest
begins to emerge.


We continue on to Manheim,
where the Neckar joins the
Rhine, in sight of
the Electoral Palace. Here
we disembark for an
excursion to Heidelberg
or Worms. There will be
ample time for us
to shop, after which
the ship awaits us.


It has been a pleasant
time, and now we have

departed Worms, the
town of Mainz appearing
on our left. Many a
song is sung to a glass
of local wine. Soon we
reach the town of
Assmannshausen, our
port for the night.


We have left behind
the precious little town,
with its fiery wine,
and boarded our vessel.
Having breakfasted
by the river, we are
under way again. Seated
on deck we listen,
as our guide prepares us
for what is soon to appear.


Here we are in the
magnificent Rhine gorge,
with the celebrated
Lorelei its highlight.
The views become fantastic,
each bend affording a
new and surprising sight.

Cliffs and mountains
follow in close succession,

numberless castles atop them.


The night has found us
in this industrial city.
Today, in the lowlands, we
will complete our tour of
Northern Europe. After
customs clearance we cruise
through the Dutch countryside
and arrive at Amsterdam,
where buses await us for
the transfer to our hotel.


High above the clouds we
contemplate the “Lady of
Spain” — enchanting, mysterious,
and yet accessible. Our
plane has touched down in
the very heart of Iberia;
we disembark, eager to
explore the narrow
streets and miniature plazas
of the old quarter.


It is afternoon. We
have passed up Toledo to
enjoy ourselves instead.
Having roamed the “rastro”
and the chic boutiques of
the Avenida José Antonio,
we tarry at an old “mesón”
over golden sherry. It
is time now for siesta.
The fiesta is hours away.


We are determined not
to miss the stronghold of
Moorish Spain, which lives
on as the symbol of romance.

Nor the mystery and beauty
of the Alhambra’s Palace, crown
jewel of the city. We visit
other gems too, the Gothic
chapel and Renaissance cathedral,
swamped in blossoms.


It is with sadness that
we leave behind this seaside
village at the foot of the
Sierra Blanca. We say
farewell to Andalusia,
relaxing in a bright café,
chatting as we sip our
frosted sangrias. We have
come close to Algeciras
only to pass her by.


It is a long journey we
have undertaken, and once more
we find ourselves embarking.
This time it will be
the adventure of a lifetime,
for we are to travel far
to discover the East,
its beautiful peoples
steeped in centuries
of exotic traditions.

* In this the American Revolutionary Bicentennial Year the Orchestra
recognizes our musical heritage by calling attention to works by our
native composers.


Ainslee Cox

In his second season as Director and Conductor, Mr. Cox epitomizes several adjectives — charismatic, versatile, professional, human. During his brief leadership the orchestra has been welcomed throughout Oklahoma with renewed enthusiasm. Cox, a native of Texas, studied in Austin. Later, as a protégé of Leopold Stokowski he conducted at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and throughout New York City. He has assisted Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez and Andre Kostelanetz and has filled the podium of other major orchestras, including the Dallas, Baltimore and Pittsburgh Symphonies. Last spring he returned to Nuremburg to conduct the Symphoniker at the Meistersingerhalle. During 1975 he made numerous recordings: he led the Royal Philharmonic in pieces by Elgar in London; for release in Germany he conducted Russian music; in New York City he recorded works with The Golamen Band.

Aaron Copland

Born Brooklyn, November 14, 1900, Aaron Copland is probably America’s best-known living composer, in part due to his efforts as a teacher and conductor of musical events, but most especially because his music seems to touch the roots of the American experience. His works resonate with emotions that have shaped the nation, capturing the proud and forward-looking mood that has distinguished the development of our country.

Louis Moreau Gottschalk

Born New Orleans, May 8, 1829; died Rio de Janeiro, December 18, 1869.

Charles Ives

Born Danbury, Connecticut, October 20, 1874; died New York City, May 19, 1954.

Marga Richter

A graduate of Juilliard, Ms. Richter studied with William Bergsma and Vincent Persichetti. While still a student she had several works performed, “We shall hear more from Miss Richter!” the critic of The New York Times predicted. His prophecy has since been borne out: six of her works have been recorded, including Concerto for Piano and Violas, Cellos and Basses. One of her most widely performed works is the ballet score, Abyss. Commissioned by the Harkness Ballet, it was premiered in Cannes, France in 1964 and subsequently was performed in major cities of North and South America, Europe and Asia. In September 1975 New York’s Museum of Modern Art gave two concerts devoted entirely to the music of Marga Richter, the first time in its history that it had given a woman such recognition. Ms. Richter is director of the League of Women Composers. Her Concerto was written for America’s greatest exponent of contemporary piano music, William Masselos.

Lee Hoiby

Lee Hoiby graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1947 and continued his study at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia with Gian Carlo Menotti, winning a Master’s degree in 1952. Mr. Hoiby has spent time in Rome and Salzburg as a Fulbright scholar and been a recipient of the National Institute of Arts and Letters Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship. The composer’s lyrical bent is well displayed in his operas, which include a setting of Tennessee Williams’ famous play. Summer and Smoke. Mr. Hoiby has created incidental music for many plays. His score for After Eden proved an impressive part of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company’s recent Oklahoma City visit. His Concerto, commissioned by G. Schirmer, was completed in Rome in 1958. It has been performed in New York at Philharmonic Hall, but the Oklahoma City performances are the first in which the composer himself appears as soloist.

Francis Thorne

Francis Thorne studied with Paul Hindemith at Yale University, from which he graduated in 1943. After active wartime service Mr. Thorne took up a business career. By 1954 the urge to return to music became overwhelming, and more study followed, interlarded with jazz piano playing. In addition to his jazz work, Mr. Thorne has composed in most of the “serious” forms. Rhapsodic Variations was written in Florence, Italy in 1964. Although it has been recorded, these are its first “live” performances. Mr. Thorne is Executive Director of the American Composers Alliance. The Thorne Music Fund, which he established in 1965, has provided fellowships and commissions for such composers as Stephan Wolpe, Elliot Carter, Duke Ellington, Howard Swanson, Harry Partch, Edgar Varese and Henry Cowell.

Mexico is the greatest natural museum in the world.


Here you can see pyramids, ruins of ancient temples, marvels in sculpture and painting, the caves of Cacahuamilpa — seventh wonder of the world — and the priceless jewels of Monte Albán.


Paseo de la Reforma is a beautiful drive along which you see remarkable monuments, one to Columbus, another to the memory of Cuauhtémoc, the last Aztec emperor, who struggled courageously against the Spanish conquerors.


Here you will find Colonial Architecture of the most refined style, such as the Cathedral.


The Cathedral is a gem of architecture; it is the largest Cathedral in all America and one of the finest.


Nowadays Mexico City is considered as up-to-date a city as any European metropolis.



Mexico City cathedral


México es el Museo Natural más grande del mundo.


Aquí se pueden ver pirámides, ruinas, templos antiguos y maravillas en esculturas, pinturas, las Grutas de Cacahuamilpa — una de las siete maravillas del mundo — y las famosísimas joyas de monte Albán.


El Paseo de la Reforma es un magnífico boulevard en el cual se pueden apreciar varios monumentos, uno a Cristóbal Colón, otro a la memoria de Cuauhtémoc, el último emperador de los Aztecas, que peleó valientemente contra los conquistadores Españoles.


Aquí se encuentra arquitectura colonial de un estilo altamente refinado como el de la Catedral.


La Catedral es una joya arquitectónica; es la más grande de toda América.


La Ciudad de México hoy en día es considerada tan adelantada como

cualquier metrópoli europea.
