This audience never could come close to
Lou Harris' definition of a cross section.
It's young, it's hip, and, in all probability;
loaded. But one thing for sure: it makes for
a unique, at times exuberant, cinema
This crowd pays $1 at the Stuart The
atre to see the KFMQ Friday night late
show every weekend. It's the kiddie mati
nee spirit-stomping feet, whistling, throw
ing popcorn-grown up. There's the enthusi
asm of the Big Red card section-fans root
ing for characters and personalities who are
out to put one over on what used to be
called The Establishment.
To start the 197S fall season, the theater
brought back a Rolling Stones film, "Ladies
and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones."
The party atmosphere began even before
the movie started; during the preview for
"Easy Rider." In the film clip, Jack Nichol
son was handing a joint to Dennis Hopper.
What is it?" Hopper asks. "It's mari
juana," Nicholson replies, as if he's transla
ting the meaning of a dirty novel to his kid
the cheers go on through the rest of
The sound already was loud when the
Stones movie started, but the projectionist
turned up the volume.
ONYEAA-from the audience.
The projectionist turned the sound up
still higher, (with far outs, right ons, etc.)
to the brink of complete distortion.
The KFMQ movies started in fall 1973
with a showing of "Harold and Maude."
The movie wasn't as successful as Stuart
Theatre management had hoped.
The management decided that KFMQ
FM reached the greatest potential movie
audience and made the radio station the
only advertiser. The first movie, at
Christmas-time, sold out.
Both movies shown this semester '
"Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling
Stones" and "Easy Rider" were sellouts.

bernstein on words
Gypsies may be Bohemian
By Theodore M. Bernstein
Nonconformists. In their lifestyle, some
artists, writers, composers and the like are
unconventional and spirited. They are
sometimes called bohemians, a term that
was used more often several decades ago
than it is now. What Mrs. Lillian Scheidts
of Philadelphia would like to know is how
the word came into use.
. The term wa3 associated with gypsies,
who on their way to Western Europe
passed through Bohemia, then a region of
Austria-Hungary and later a province of
Czechoslovakia. It was believed that the
gypsies, with their unusual way of living,
came from Bohemia. - '
Sexism. The criticism here recently of
the clumsy word cochairperson evoked
three letters of disagreement and one and
a half of agreement.
Rina Thomassen of Wallingford, Pa.,
writes that she "would rather put up with
the cochairperson than try to explain to
my children why the woman in the blue
, uniform is called a policeman." She says
she does not advocate being called a chair
woman, adding, "I am a person first." That
suggests she would like to have that cop
.'; called a police person.
... Julie Sterner of Chadds Ford, Pa., says,
"If man means person (which was an essen
: tial of our argument), then why make the
sex distinction by using man or woman
alter the chair or cochair?" "
Her "if ' clause answers her question:
since man means person, it does not always
mean. and is not always intended to mean
an individual of the masculine gender.
And then Karen R. Scheiner writes that
man has become so closely associated with
- a person of male gender "that many people
today no longer consider it broad enough
, id include all humanity."
"Many people?" How many people read
masculinity into craftmanship, woman,
mankind, manhandle or, on a slightly
different tack, female?
On the other side of this discussion are
Mrs. William L. Lance of Ridley Park, Pa.,
who was "overjoyed" to read our com
ments, and Armin L. Saeger of Philadelphia,
who, in his half letter, suggests substituting
'for chairperson the chairmensh.
