Model Diplomacy, Genuine Memories Historical replay. In the best Washingtonian style, Justin Fox attempts to hurl a quarter across the wide Potomac River. The frigid weather on the morning of the group ' s excursion to Mount Vernon inspired a range of unusual activities among the displaced Californians. The real United Nations, of course, is located in New York City. There, representatives from countries around the world meet to discuss matters of far-reaching international significance. Of less world sig- nificance, perhaps, but tem- porarily of no less importance to those of us who took part in them, were the model United Nations the Foreign Affairs Club participated in through- out the year. Thirteen of us, with advisors Richard Dobbins and Norma Alsterlind, traveled to Wash- ington, D.C., in early February for seven days of sightseeing and four days at Georgetown University ' s North American Invitational Model United Na- tions. In early September, we made our first definite plans to travel to a major eastern con- ference. Three years of hard work and successful fund- raisers including the annual Sports Convention, would ease the financial burden on each person chosen to make the trip, but the total cost was still approximately $600 per student. After we won an award as the Soviet Union at the Santa Clara Valley Model United Na- tions in November, interest in the trip peaked. From 25 stu- dents who expressed a desire to go, we selected the thirteen who would represent the Fed- eral Republic of Germany in the Economic and Social Coun- cil and the German Democratic Republic in the Security Coun- cil in Washington. Those of us selected, Liane Hull, Steve Tuemmler, Todd Millick, Charlie Thompson, Melissa Ja- cobs, Mike Bennett, Joan Chu, Carl Goldberg, Steven Iriki, Dave Richard, John Bennett, Justin Fox, and Richard Vasse, then spent part of the next two months researching the posi- tions and policies of our na- tions and preparing resolutions and speeches. Mr. Dobbins never let us forget that he expected nothing less than our best effort. The conference itself occu- pied four days, and we were in Washington for eleven, so we took advantage of our extra time to visit the traditional Washington sights, to make special trips to Gettysburg, Williamsburg, and Mount Vernon, and to generally enjoy our time in the nation ' s capital. As usual, once the model UN began, we did very well. On the final day of our stay, our Federal Republic of Ger- many won an " Outstanding " award as one of the top delega- tions among those represented by the 2400 students who at- tended the conference. Later that day, we drove to the Baltimore airport and be- gan our long flight home, by way of Los Angeles. When we finally dragged our bodies off the World Airways plane in Oakland and collected our mountains of luggage, we were exhausted, bleary-eyed, and, as we reflected on our ex- peiences and accomplish- ments, very satisfied. Thin skinned. Accustomed to mild California winters, the group spent much of its time outdoors shivering in spite of warm clothing. Members of the delegation contemplate the warmth that will greet them when they finally enter the White House for their early morning tour. 242 PEOPLE AND EVENTS Exclusive rights. Since they made their trip during February, the group didn ' t have to fight teeming hordes of people at generally popular tourist attractions.

Center of interest. The Capitol served as a focal point for many of the group ' s activities in Washington. Students spent the better part of two days observing House and Senate sessions and wandering aimlessly throughout the building. You are there. As Liane Hull, Annette Dobbins, Charlie Thompson, Melissa Jacobs and Justin Fox (starring as the American flag) attempt to recreate the World War II conquest of Iwo Jima, Richard Dobbins records their efforts for posterity. Posing as statues became a popular pastime for attention-starved travelers. Moment of silence. The group ' s visit to Arlington National Cemetery included stops at the graves of John and Robert Kennedy and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Dave Richard, Steve Tuemmler and Todd Millick examine the gravestone of a World War II veteran. jfis Clothes Circuit The Store That Saves You 20 ' ' i to50 " c on Famous Brand Fashions Shop (mi (jmpau . ..
