12 3Lo0flnstU0 Himrsi PartiV-Mon.,Apr.3J972 The Young icans at Calteeli What makes the 30'' Young Americans,' who appeared at C a 1 1 e c h' a Beckman Auditorium Sat-.urday night, so specially appealing? I mean, apart 'from their obvious youthful irhntocnmanncc (-jtrcxs 1UI uiiuit.miiii(.uvM vitt)w'3 .from 16 to 20), bounce (no group could work harder), talent (they sing beauti- ; fully,, dance with delight- " ful abandon) and ensemble spirit (everybody seems to enjoy everybody else). Perhaps it's their individuality. They're not all white, not all of the girls are slim and gorgeous (some are), not all have .supercule Pepsodent smiles pasted on their faces (some do). They do not shout out their patriotism or wave flags ad nauseum. They merely , dazzle you with their music making and the quality of their never-ending movement (coached by James Bates). Though they come on (and end up, after several costume changes) as cheerleaders in white and gold, the opening song is the "Alleluja from Ga-brielli's Motet VI. Tone quality is wondrous rich and pure, polyphonies are crisp. But if you long for a little more of this sort of thing (it would be nice, for the sake of balance), no such' luck.

Not everything proved colossal on this occasion the "Oklahoma!" medley was rather weakly sung, the -"West Side Story" g r o up' somewhat a w k-wardly staged and there were occasional synchronization problems between singers and baud (solid vibes, flute, percussion, some brass), which -was inconveniently placed at one side . wall of the house. But there were many gems, among them an inventive combination of "Easy to Be Hard" and fi "People," plus Sharon Hendricks' lovely solo work in "Let Us Break Bread T o g e t h e r," and more.

V 'V' . f '' i TOUCHING Nuns admire young man In an episode: from "The Decameron," film by Pier Paolo Pasolini ' premiering on West Coast ot Doheny Plaza Theater. MOVIE REVIEW Pasolini Celebrates Life in 'Decameron9 BY KEVIN THOMAS Times Staff Writer At the end of his lusty, sprawling film extracted from "The Decameron" (at the Doheny Tlaza), its noted Italian director Pier Ta-olo Pasolini, playing a 14th-century- painter, asks, "Why produce a work of art when it's so nice to dream about it?" The picture itself is the answer: to celebrate life, no matter what. As this artist, Pasolini, an intense, wiry man, has come to Naples to paint a church mural and "The Decameron," in transporting us as it does to a different time and place, becomes a rich, sensual fresco itself that brings to vivid, turbulent life the distant past. Seeing Anew By virtue of Pasolini's presence in front of the camera as well as in back of it we are able to experience consciously the act of seeing the world through his eyes. Thus we are made aware anew of , the artist's special ability, to perceive transcendant beauty in every aspect of life despite man's infinite capacity for the folly, greed, duplicity and hypocrisy that overflow the film's eight classic Bocca-cio tales dealing with a variety of gulls and cuckolds. Decidedly, it is Pasolini's version as an artist that lifts the vignettes far above the level of a cheap leer. (While the film's X-rating seems unduly severe, the movie certainly is risque and is certain to offend some people's religious sensibilities.) Nude Sleepers The fullest measure of Pasolini's achievement occurs when a young couple is found sleeping in the nude by the girl's parents. The point of the story is that once past their initial shock and indignation, the parents decide to be de "OiiEOFTHE YEAR'S ,,r? TEH BEST!"
