® POLEMIC April,1974 Alpena Community ‘College, Alpena, Michigan 49707 Pictures and hanging displays lined halls. Art Show Presented The ACC student art show was on ex- hibit until the 29th of March downstairs in the Jesse Besser Museum. Ceramics was the strong point this year with only four people participating. Kim Roy’s pottery was very good. He has a good sense of design and his pieces are unique. The design of the pot itself is often complemented greatly by the glaz- ing effects. Particularly interesting is a cookie jar with a free formed base and a wheel-thrown top and lid. Mary B. Agius’s hanging planters were very nice as were her free form containers. Also interesting were Candy Voigt’s hang- ing candle holders - - hand built and quite intricate. Ken Grocholski seemed to be the most versatile artist. He had ceramic pieces, By Kelly Treece metal sculpture, paintings and drawings in the show. In the jewelry division, especially nice was a cast silver belt buckle in a geometric design done by Lisa Scheuner. The stone settings done by Lisa Scheuner and Mary B. Agius were also very good. The most innovative idea was Neil Schoof’s cardboard chair. It was a mod- ern design made of pieces of cardboard glued together. It was surprisingly com- fortable and very strong. Jean Kroll did a carving of a Mohawk Indian out of a maple log that was very good, Considering the few artists participa- ting, the show was interesting with a wide range of accomplishments. Ride Board Begins Located across from the Business Office in Van Lare is the new ride board spon- sored by the Student Senate. It consists of a large map of Michigan, which is divided into 5 different numbered sections. All you have to do, if you want a ride, is fill out one of the supplied cards with your name, address, destination, phone, and the date of departure. If you are a driver, you fill out the same but add how many riders you can take. Then drop it in the envelope with your section number under rider or driver. There are also envelopes for out of state drivers and riders. Thats all there is to it! By Debbie Anderson Students registering at the newly established ride board. Vol. 5 No. 7 Thunder Bay Arts Council Presents Poet Naomi Madgett By Sherry Morrish The Thunder Bay Arts Council spon- sored the outstanding black poet Naomi Madgett who presented her poetry in a series of straight readings at the Besser Museum Planetarium on Tuesday, February 6th. Starting off the program, Mrs. Madgett presented a Straight reading explaining why she wrote and reflected upon her life and her motivation to compose poetry. Then, selecting specific poems for use in the planetarium, she read seasonal selec- tions from her work accompanied by pic- turesque slides of the appropriate seasons which were projected on the dome while soft music played. Following the seasonal selection, soft music and a series of star images on the dome were accompaniments for further readings fitting for the set. Mrs. Madgett is currently a full pro- fessor at Eastern Michigan University while previous to this she taught in the Detroit school system. She has had her poetry published in over 50 anthologies and some of her work is published in four languages. Mrs, Madgett has four published volumes out, and her last two volumes which are available locally are entitled “Star By Star” and “Pink Ladies in the Afternoon”. Along with the Arts Council, Mrs. Nancy Fitzgerald of Alpena was largely responsible for Mrs. Madgett’s appearance.

Naomi Madgett CBS Visits Campus By Scott Olmstead Thursday, February 28, television sta- tions 9 - 10 Cadillac and Sault Ste. Marie visited the A.C.C. Campus to film some of our forestry and fisheries students in action. The film, comprised of student inter- views and silent filming of lab and field experiments, will make up the 30 minute presentation of the “Eye on Michigan” program. This program is aired on Sunday nights at 10:30 p.m. No definite date has been set for the showing, but it has tentatively been scheduled for early April. According to Jay Wright, one of the forestry instructors, “We want the general public to know that more and more students are inter- ested in ecology and our environment.” He also stated, “Our program is one of few approved by the Society of American Foresters.”, and that A.C.C. is unique because it is the only Forestry Technology program in low. er Michigan and makes use of its own nursery and saw mill.
