Give 'em Hell Harry
There's a nostalgic craze going on in
the country, as if you hadn't noticed.
And no one is exempt, not even our
33rd president, the late Harry Truman.
In this time of deceitful politicians and
Watergate dealings, the people of America
are in dire need of a figure in whom they
can place their trust-someone who is
honest, straightforward and full of
integrity. Unfortunately, no such indivi
dual exists today, so we have given rebirth,
through T-shirts, records, books and plays,
to one of our most colorful presidents:
Give 'em Hell Harry, playing at the
Stuart Theatre Sept. 24-26 is a film made
from the one-man play starring James
Whitmore, which has been touring the
country this past year preparing for its
Broadway opening in the fall.
Whitmore. who many will remember for
his one-man performance in Will Rogers
U.S.A., has re-created Truman with vitality
and freshness, although his speech is some
what faster and less deliberate than the
As with all biographical plays Give
'em Hell Harry has represented a character
based more on fiction than on fact. We
have a tendency in our society to portray
past figures the way we would like to re
member them and not as they actually
were. This is the main problem with the
film-it doesn't show the real Truman.
For that reason, and because of
Whitmore's great performance, Give 'em
Hell Harry is a film not to be missed.
Tickets are on sale now for this limited
engagement at the Stuart box office,
13th and P Streets, or by mail.

Acronym with a string. Noting that the
acronym WASP stands for White Anglo
Saxon Protestant, William Royster John
son of Palm Beach, Fla., writes that it is
surprising that no one seems to have
observed that the "white" is superfluous
since to be an Anglo-Saxon is to be white.
He suggests that the W should be
dropped, leaving the acronym ASP. That,
he says, "would be more apt anyway in the

terminology and that prompted R.T.
Boehm of Columbus, Ohio, to send in this
interesting explanatory information:
"Like English itself, legal terms reflect

ruling class; the Latin, used by the priest

In recent years, prominent dieticians
have supported the natural food concept.
They contend there are numerous advan

nature of our society.
. Although health experts offer a valid
case in favor of natural foods, vegetarians,
et al, have had limited dining experiences
outside the home. Serving strictly natural
foods, the new Palm's Cafe, 235 N. 1 1th, is
a welcome addition for the diet conscious
