Richard The Only Honest Women In America (NOTE: IB the New York Times, May 29th, 1971, an article appeared entitled "Women's Liberationism Hail toe Prostitute." The gut of the article was that members of the organization ought to go out and help the prostitute because she was the most honest and courageous leader of the revolution against male dominance. What follows is an imaginary episode evoked by the Liberation Movement's desire to help the streetwalker in New York.) Scene: Eighth Avenue in New York. Two young girls, attractively dressed, stand side by side in a doorway. One of the girls, Janet, a blonde, is reading the New York Times. She is also chewing gum, and wears a mini skirt. Marge, her friend, wears large round sun glasses and stares carefully at passers-by, especially if they are men. · Janet Say Marge, have you read the Times today? Marge Are you kidding? Me read the Times? AH the news that's fit to print. Janet Well, it says that the Women's Liberation Movement is asking its members to recognize us as the most courageous leaders of the revolution against male domination. Marge You don't say. And after all these years ... That's democracy for you... Janet It says that Ti-Grace Atkinson, who spoke at this meeting, said that they have to go out on the streets and help us. Marge What do you mean? You mean, they're going to try to muscle in on our racket? Why can't those women let us alone? We don't need their help. Can you imagine them standing here like we do, day after day? Their arches wouldn't hold up. What else did itsay? Janet Hang onto your pocketbook, Marge. This woman said that her impression is that the prostitute is the only honest woman left in America. ,, ' She must be kidding! Janet (Reading from the Times) "The suppression of women is synonymous with being forced into prostitution, but if that's the way it is, I say, let's not go for free, let's up the charge." Marge That's what I've been telling you for the last three months. This is what we ought to do. Up our prices. Janet (Her eyes getting bigger) Listen to this, Marge . . . She says, "Prostitutes are the only honest women because they charge for their services, rather than submitting to a marriage contract which forces them to work for life without pay." Marge Well, I'll be darned... Here we are trying to find somebody to marry and they want to get out in the streets like you and me. It's a messed up world, Janet, any way you look at it Janet (Still reading from the Times) She says that for every woman arrested for prostitution, four men should be arrested for obscenity. Marge It takes two to tango, I always say. Janet (Still reading) "More and more women are apparently beginning to accept the notion that their present role in the kitchen or behind a typewriter has been thrust upon them by a society dominated by men and government by masculine values " Marge She's hit the nail right on the head . . . It's always what men want. . . never what we want... Janet Betty Friedan, who is the head of the movement, says that men just don't understand our concern to have an independent role in life ... and she says that we can't rely on men so we will have to do it ourselves... ~_^_ Marge You-know . . . I think that Women's Liberation Movement is going to put us out of business. What's going to happen to us if they keep telling everybody we're so honest . .. and so courageous . . . No man wants a woman that's honest and courageous . . . They want to look down on us... - - , Janet That's what this Liberation Movement says Marge Maybe we ought to join it? ... Janet Join it? .. .They want tojoin us!... Marge Yes ... that's right! Well, maybe when they get out of their kitchens and out from behind those typewriters, we can give them a couple of pointers, then, maybe they'll let us join the Movement.. Janet Yeah, Maybe then . (Man passes by) Hi, honey, do you live near here' . . . (Man stops) Man I sure do, baby.. how about having a drink with me .. Marge (Indignantly) Don't talk to her like that. She is one of the few honest women left in America... and you treat her that way .. Janet (Laughing) And I'm courageous, too. Man I bet you are, baby (Holds out his arm. JaneUakes it) -- Janet See you later, Marge, (They disappear down the street together) Marge So much for honesty... and courage .. but I liked that part about upping our prices .. Inflation has ruined everything* ARENA STAGE POSSIBLE 1970-1971 SEASON Even though Arena Stage can offer you 21 good reasons for subscribing to its 1970-71 season, the best one I can think of is the fact that Arena Stage in the past 5 years has risen from a pedestrian selection of plays, into another area entirely, where it ought to have been all along. New plays are being offered by new exciting playwrights. New talented actors are appearing, while imaginative sets seem to surpass each other with each new production. MEWSP4PER fl R CH1VE®«_, ,, '* In The Deck? , Arena premiered "The Great White Hope" which won a Pulitzer Prize. Last year it offered "Indians." This year it ended its series with another Pulitzer Prize winner, "No Place To Be Somebody." The New Kreeger Theatre will open next season, seating 500. The theatre will offer a flexible end-stage.

While parents have been pelting the Editor of the News-Post with pro and con arguments in regard to continuing Title HI in Frederick County next fall, and County Commissioners cloak themselves in financial mystery, and the Board of Education appeals to these same Commissioners for help, one can't help but wonder what has happened to Mr. Robert Pitts, "Mister Title III," himself? Is he being modest and diplomatic by not speaking out in behalf of the very program he has been in charge of here in Frederick County since its inception? Has he decided to be cautious, to wait to see what is to happen . . . before he stands up for the program? With the electricity in the air surrounding this program, there certainly isn't any reason for him to remain in the background, being afraid that he might cause more controversy if he actually spoke out about how he feels in regard to it. Perhaps he has been silenced, through pressure, to stay out of the picture until it is all over? Perhaps not? . . . But surely, if anyone is to stand up and be heard in behalf of Title III, Robert Pitts is the man to do it. What is he waiting for?. It can't be because he is afraid of losing his job. His natural talent as a teacher would negate that immediately. Title III may go, but Robert Pitts as a teacher will remain. So. what holds him back' Robert Pitts, we are waiting to hear your side of the story, because of all people involved in the program, you are the one person who has been closest to it. Perhaps you could raise the $20,000 that we are told is the cost of financing this program. Even if you could get each of your pupils to bring in $1. per head you would have a head start. You have taught enough students well in Frederick that parents would not hesitate to help you finance a program that you feel js completely worth financing and continuing. Where have you been Robert Pitts? Frederick County's Cultural Future is waiting to hear from you!
