Club Indigo to present Hitchcock film June 3
By Joe Kirkish Posted
HOUGHTON -- The Mu Beta Psi music fraternity presents the June food and film
event (Club Indigo) Friday, June 3, at the Calumet Theatre. The movie is vintage Alfred Hitchcock,
Foreign Correspondent (1940), in which the great director of suspense mixes comedy with seriousness in a
political situation. Kirkish notes this film has been considered by some critics to be
Hitchcock's finest and most important film. The movie begins at 7:15 p.m., preceded
at 6 p.m. by a Dutch gourmet buffet created by chef Erik Karvonen of Eagle River's Fitzgerald restaurant. Reservations for the buffet must be made at least a day in
advance, by calling the Theatre: 337-2610. Note: Guest columnist Joe
Kirkish recently celebrated his 80th birthday. Happy Birthday, Joe! more

about building the school. more

Guest columnist Ray Molzon says an escape to "God's Country" is only
relative if one notices, on Houghton's M-26, the pattern of commercial
development "that can be found along the main highway of practically any town of decent size"
-- giant buildings, fast-food restaurants, no sidewalks, and "a looming Wal-Mart
... currently being metamorphosed into a Super Wal-Mart." Citing satire from a favorite T.V. program,
Park, Molzon questions
both the quality of Wal-Mart goods and the labor practices behind the giant
corporation's low prices. more
