Jazz Master Brubeck Performs at WSC &&&&&&&& Inside Club Clips 2 Model U.N 3 Editorials 4,5 Mrs. Brubeck 6 Sports 7 Unclassifieds r ...... .8 QUOTA BLES "Soap and education are not as sudden as a massacre, but they are more deadly in the long run. "-Mark Twain by Rick Jones The appearance of Dave Brubeck in the Fine Arts Building was a major event for jazz and music in general. Through two sets the new Brubeck quartet, which includes Dave's son on bass, covered some of the his classics from the days of "Time Out" to more recent material. The performance was delivered with a structured spontaneity that really 'cooked'. Drummer Randy Jones was very impressive. His solo during the performance brought the house down. Saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi was also spotlighted and was ex cellent. Of course Brubeck was as hot as ever. Before the performance I spoke with Brubeck about his music and its direction. R.J.: Do you compose when you're playing in a group or do you sit down and write it out measure by measure? D.B.: Either. A good definition of composition is Stavin-sky's "Poetics of Music." He says composition is selective improvisation. Most good composers are good im-provisers. In many ways, jazz is similar to the old tradition. I'm always surprised when people think jazz is different, and thats only because they are not able to understand what music of the past was. When they say they can't understand jazz, it really means they can't understand music. R.J.: You came from a classical background? D.B: No. Absolutely not. R.J.: On "Time Further Out" you composed some music that was based on a painting by Miro, which was also the album cover. Has your music been influenced by the visual arts? D.B.: That specific painting, if you remember, had a sequence of numbers and these were a lot of the numbers I was using. Actually, I just See Brubeck, p. 6 Legendary jazzman Dave Brubeck thrilled jazz fans with a concert at the Browning Fine Arts Center on the WSC campus. Brubeck is shown here during a pre-concert interview with Signpost Features Editor Rick Jones.

"This is the first time I ever got a certificate before I did anything," said Lybrand after she accepted an award from the WSC business club. Lybrand spoke to several business classes and convocation on the subject of body language. The speaker literally moved the audience by asking them to collectively move toward the stage. She applauded the audience as they enthusiastically responded to her request. The speech began with a clarification by Lybrand as she stated "You can't tell what's on your mind by what you do." She also made it clear that body language is not one isolated gesture, that it must be looked at in clusters. Her definition of body language includes clothing, speech, body position (including hands and toes) and even cologne. r "They all say something," Lybrand said. She said these things may be more important than verbal communication. "Talk comes cheap," she said. Lybrand also discussed the mannerisms people use to convey their ideas. To be specific, she pointed out how to determine a liar, a sincere person, and how to intimidate. She explained some things important to use in job interviews, such as walking with confidence. During an informal moment after the convocation, Lybrand admitted she has had seven different hair colors during the past year. Red is the best color, she said, because people seem to feel more comfortable with that hair color. They seem to joke around with her more, she said. "I never do anything I don't mean to do," she said, referring to her own body language. She also indicated, however, that she doesn't plan every move. She stated that her favorite position is to stand with her hand on her hip, with the fingers pointed outward. "This position seems to tell people they can feel 'down home'," she explained. Body language expert Jayne Lybrand spoke at the Thursday convocation. Her topic was how people communicatenon-verbally.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
