Text from Pages 1 - 68 of the 1986 volume:

Zettmffaomtie cfcltofz To The Eckerd CommuniTy, The pasT year gave blrTh To a new Idea. The purpose lr ImplemenTing This idea was vasT in ITs poTenTial. This new Idea became IMEAQI. MEAC was To offer many Things To Eckerd in many dIfferenT ways. The newsmagazlne would evenTually become a monThIy vehicle for high quallTy magazine journalism. HlThin ThaT conTexT, iT would publish in-depTh reporTlng on issues ranging from ThaT of conTroversIal world news To envl- ronmenTal concerns To campus pollTics. IT would also give anoTher opporTunlTy To publish sTudenT- based fIcTion, arT and professional-quallTy color andE Sh phoTographs. IT would complimenT The poTenTial of a weekly newspaper and courageously seek The TruTh professionally To Things The sTudenTs wanTed To knom BuT, IT would do so much more. LMEAQ1 would be used as a Tool for The Admissions DeparTmenT To pull In prospecTIve sTudenTs InTeresTed in a communicaTIons career. LMEAQI would Teach sTudenTs many Things abouT The vasTness of magazine producTIon Including wrITlng, phoTography, graphic and IayouT design, acTual prinTing process and much, much more. LMEAQI would Teach Things ThaT Eckerd could never offer. IT would Teach Things ThaT mosT do noT learn unTll well InTo a communlcaTions careen And for The school, LMEAQI would soon win design, phoTography, and maybe even wrlTing awards ThaT have never been won here. In a shorT Time, IMEAQ would become The mosT poslTive program coming ouT of The ECOS organIzaTlon, Touching far more sTudenTs Than any oTher program is Touching nom BuT, as iT was born This year, so did IT die. wiTh greaT remorse I reporT ThaT This Is The lasT Issue of MEAQ and Therefore all ThaT poTen- Tlal ls IosT. I do noT foresee any oTher program now ThaT carries The same promises ThaT IMEAQI did There are Two reasons why LMEAQI was buried afTer only Three Issues: Iii In looking back aT The original proposal, even Today, I say iT was brilIIanT and There is noThing ThaT I would change. However, There was one flaw, and ThaT is The firsT reason why IMEAQI is folding ThaT one flaw In The proposal was me. I dreamed up The Idea, Therefore I feIT I could pul I iT off. I had The necessary experience, and perhaps even The TaIenT, buT whaT I feIT mosT imporTanTly, The desire To see IT happen. UnforTunaTeIy, I did noT realize aT The Time ThaT I sorely lacked The discipline To make my dream a reaIITy. I had all This enThusiasm and all Those ideas, buT I sTilI has so much To learn abouT drawing iT all TogeTher and channeling iT in one direcTIon. Remember, This was one hell of a projecT ThaT no one else would have been foolish enough To aTTempT. So, as mosT are calling IT, I failed To come Through wITh my promises and all I did was produce Three issues, none of Them on Time. BuT, I also did someThlng ThaT Isn'T being noTiced. I TaughT a IoT of Things Tc people, I broughT a loT of people InTo The medias, and lasTly, I made some people believe in whaT They can do. So, I feel poorly for Hover promisIng,u buT I regreT noThing else C29 There ls anoTher reason why LMEAQI ls no more. This reason is someThlng I would never have expecTed from Eckerd, and now my vlew of Eckerd will never be The same. I could have gone on nexT year and made my proposal for LMEAQI a reaIlTy because l've learned so much Through my misTakes, ThaT I will never repeaT. I also would be willing To make The same sacrifices ThaT I did This year, muck To The disapproval and dismay of my professors, because I really believed ThaT IMEAQI was worTh it BuT, for some who are making The final decisions abouT The medias and The sTudenT budgeTs, dreams aren'T worTh fIghTlng and Trylng for. I never ThoughT I would have said ThaT There are so many young people who are so much more lnTeresTed In seeing a producT, in a maTerial sense, Than seeing a drean come True. I never ThoughTI would have seen so many young people wiTh such shorT vision. BuT, guess lT's True, and I flnd IT sad. whaT baffles me is ThaT There is no reason why we can'T Take This opporTunITy while we have The chance Tc chase every crazy dream we can, no maTTer whaT The moneTary loss will be. Never again wil I we see a Time, like now in col lege, when we won'T have To concerr ourselves wiTh pea problems like how To pay bills, or sick children, or dying childrem money doesn'T go To sTrong invesTmenTs in The fuTure. Our sTudenT money goes To one-day programs enjoyed by The few for The momenT. We are supposed To feel free enough now, for lasT Time, To Take glanT risks because we're sTIll learning. We don'T have To expecT To wizards, or perfecT In any way. We should only expecT To be open To making The mIsTakes Our sTudenT concerTs, or probatly The be financial necessary Tc learn how To grow a llTTIe closer To perfecTlom Am I bITTer? UnforTunaTely yes. Never for one momenT dld I puT any Tlme InTo LMEAQI for my own self-graTIfIcaTlon or fulfll ImenT. I only ever dld any of IT because I wanTed To reTurn back Tc Eckerd a llTTle of whaT IT had given me. Now, l'm pracTical ly banned from working on nexT year's newspaper because l'm an irresponsible rlsk. Gosh, l'm sorry. l'lI have To work on That Hell, l'lI be honesT. I regreT noThing. I did good, noT perfecT, buT good work, and aT leasT I Tried. I don'T wanT To end This leTTer compleTeIy sour for There are many who sTIIl share The same drear I have, and The courage To have wanTed To see one more chance. To menTlon Them all would be foollsl The Finance CommlTTee, and a very few are In LC. BuT, wiTh sTaff made all Three Issues happen. So, In closing, wiTh Dale McConkey, Andy Haines, Wayne Harwell, Chris Roby, Tod Dawn SmlTh, Mellssa MacKinnon, Dan Cameron, Val Cerny, Sue for They know who They are. Some are on Them, my dear friends and my very special love and good-bye, I Thank Cheryl Burke, LlnafelT, Alan Rosenzwelg, Margie Mayer, Johannes, Trish Cole and HeaTher Schwab and many Too many more.

I l Mary Zimnik, Editor 51213225 4-:+L-I-' 3212123252 .-xl: THE SCENARIO: Eckerd College, some AuTumn Ternu A wealThy, male freshman arrives on campus and is greeTed aT regisTraTion by upperclassmen, sTaff, faculfy, and whaTever. He's made To feel very welcome, very happy, desplTe The facT ThaT he's so far away from home. He seTTles inTo his dorm room and aTTends his flrsT col lege class. He's very ex- ciTed. He likes his classmaTes and hls menTor. He breezes Through his class. HBoy, ls This easy,n he Thinks. There is a lcT of discussion. Usual ly one can bul lshlT Through IT even if The reading isn'T done. BuT, Then The professor asks The freshman To wrlTe an essay on The class subjecT Thusfar. The freshman Turns ln his paper and receives lT back The nexT day -- F. He's glven The chance To Try again -- F. He geTs a D for his final grade in AuTumn Term He was superior in class discussion So, whaT's This guy's problem? ls he lazy? ls he spoiled? ls he sTupid? No, This guy has a special problem. BuT, no one Takes noTlce. He barely makes lT Through his freshman and sophomore years wiTh an equal share of D's and F's. He's superior in discussion. Then ln The second semesTer his junior year, The ls cracked and one more F means you're ouT. So, he's ouT. This freshman, so happy, so welcome rode Through almosT Three years of college. BuT, now hels gone -- soon To be forgoTTen by Eckerd STill no one nofices his problem. So, whaT is his problem? This young man is dyslecTic. iDyslexia ls an lnborn condifion ThaT limiTs abiliTy To process re- ceived informaTion inTo language. More commonly a dyslecTic is known To reverse leTTers and numbers and even leave ouT whole phrases. A dyslecTic may under- sTand someThing by ear, buT may noT be able To com- prehend Through reading or copy The same Through wriTing. Dyslexia isn'T rare. IT effecTs 10- 121 of The U.S. popul aTlon.J This young man is dyslecTic and he jusT spenT iexcuse me, hls parenTs jusT spenT, wlTh cash? almosT Three years facing one failure afTer anoThen Now hls parenTs are angry because he failed. So, why did he ever Try college? WhaT could he possibly have hoped To gain? Surely dyslexia ls someThing ThaT handicaps someone To such an exTenT ThaT They would never survive in college. AfTer all, dyslexia ls noT curable. AcTually, he's excepTlonally lnTelliqenT. BUT, his lnTeIligence is Trapped inside hls mind as if iT were bound in a cage. whaf is Trapping his mind is someThing ouT of his conTrol. Now, all he's lefT wiTh is an incredible frusTraTion and lnsecuriTy abouT his own abiliTies. 4 whip me Q:2:i:5:i:-:-:-:-12:52:13 4 -:-:-1-2--14-:-:-:Qu ...izzizzsxf So, There you have iT. The perfecT reason why This young man should noT aTTend a college. Why, iT will evenTually eiTher drive him ouT Through failure or drive him crazy. You see, college isn'T a place for anyone whose noT normal. If you have a learning dlsablliTy, you don'T belong in college. WRONG!!! There's no reason why Eckerd cannoT help The many people wiTh learning dlsabiliTies ThaT walk Through iTs doors, even lf lTs jusT direcTing To a nearby dyslecTic insTiTuTe. There's no excuse for a small lnsTlTuTion To permiT such negligence. ThaT young male wenT Through hell because hls mind was Trapped by his learning dlsablliTy and all he could accomplish was failure And now he can'T come back because The sysfem makes no room for failures, deserving or noT. He's been driven ouT of ThaT sysTem because he could noT operaTe in IT under Nnormaln sTandards. BuT, noT only was The sysTem desTlned To run againsT him, his own lack of confidence ln hls abiliTies and The consTanT frusTraTion he's under would bury him and evenTually he would give up. So, if a dyslecTic finds his way Tc a college he has Two choices. Gne, he will evenTually fail ouT or, Two, he will give up. ls This To be permiTTed To conTinue when The answer To The problem is so simple? Yes, simple. Here's a possible soluTion: FirsT, screen freshmen and Transfers Coming im A severe case of dyslexia cannoT be impossible To deTecT if The sTudenT knows ThaT The college ls Trying To help. Second, educaTe The faculfy abouT how To deal wiTh dyslecTics. Dyslexia, in any of iTs many forms is noT curable. However, lnformaTion can be drilled inTo memory. lf noThing else, The faculTy could be made aware of how To deTecT The suspicion of dyslexia Then aT leasT direcT The STUGSPT To an insTlTuTe in The area iTampai ThaT is special ly equipped To deal wlTh This disease. There are many famous, brlghT, and amblTlous gygleqfigg in our risTQry: AgeTha ChrisTie, Thomas Edison, Woodrow Wilson, and many more. Do we have The righT, as an insTiTuTlon of learning To Throw away a mind sTarving To learn? III Dear EdlTor, An lncrese ln The number of cases of academlc dlshonesTy on campus has come To The aTTenTlon of The sTudenTs and professors. There are several posslble axplanaTlons for Thls problem, The mosT llkely belng ThaT offenders do noT feel ThaT academlc dlshonesTy ls a serlous offense. IT also appears ThaT some sTudenTs who wlTness fellow sTudenTs cheaTlng and 'geTTlng away ulTh IT' feel Thay Too are enTlTled To The easy grade. ForTunaTely, Thls aTTlTude ls noT shared by The campus populaTlon aT large. BoTh sTudenTs and faculTy are dlsTurbed by academlc dlshonesTy.The argumenT ThaT offenders are cheaTlng Themselves ouT of a dlsTlncTlve educaTlon does noT appear To deTer The offenders. SomeThlng They mlghT wanT To Thlnk abouT, however, ls The prospecT of loslng The respecT of Thelr peers and professors. NoT only are sTudenTs more wllllng To Turn ln Thelr classmaTes for dlshonesTy, and rlghTfully so, buT They are becomlng lncreaslng 'Turned off' by Thls Type of behavlor. Thls was evldenT ln The wrlTlng of The 'Shared CommlTmenT'. For The sTudenTs Involved ln deslgnlng Thls honor code for The Eckerd communlTy, academlc honesTy was one of The Issues sTressed. These sTudenTs felT ThaT The lmporTance of honesTy ln The classroom could noT be mlnlmlzed. Therefore, we Too should be wllllng To ablde ln order To malnTaln The feellng ThaT Eckerd ls 'A Col lege of DlsTlnc- Tlon' made up of sTudenTs of dls- Tlngulshed characTer.

LeT me porTray some of The ways In whlch Kappa Is so unlque and why us 'KappalTes' are proud of our complex. -Kappa hosTs some of The fInesT sTudenTs on Thls campus. If one chose To compare overall GPA's of all The complexes on campus, l'm sure ThaT Kappa's would be among The hlghesT for The lasT several years. I know my own dorm alone hosTs four sophomore honor sTudenTs. Slmple pleasures, slmple mlnds? -Kappa ls unlque because our dorm damage ls subsTanTlally lower Than ThaT of 'Inner clTy' dorms. -Kappa ls unlque because In IT llve lndlvlduals who feel free To express Themselves In ways whlch They feel comTorTable and are open mlnded To The expresslons of oThers. I'm noT saylng ThaT oTher complexes To noT have Thls lndIvlduallTy. IT ls JusT ThaT Kappa's has been Taken advanTage of. Your arTlcle on Kappa ls JusT The Type of overly relnforced sTereoType ThaT has acTualIy scared people from comlng ouT here Cl flnd ThaT ThoughT To be qulTe humorous! and has InlTlaTed Kappa as THE drug complex on campus Personally, I belleve Kappa has noT more drugs and perhaps less Than any of The oTher complexes on campus. I am noT saylng Kappa does noT parTy. Yes, we deflnITe- ly know how To parTy, buT I be- lleve IT ls noT The desTrucTlve Type of parTylng ThaT seems To occur elsewhere. Kappa has an exTremely frlendly aTmosphere and we, as a Kappa famlly, are proud of The facT ThaT we llve here. I have greaT respecT for LMEAQI and flnd IT To be a greaT conTrlbuTlon for our communITy.

I could conTlnue To be sar- casTIc and nlT-plck The resT of The arTlcle lTempTlnglJ, buT why dlsclalm absurdlTIes wlTh absurdl- Tles? Yes, IT was very absurd To clalm ThaT resldenTs of Kappa have 'slmple pleasures, slmple mlndsl' I would explaln The mlnds of Those resldlng In Kappa as well-rounded, lnTeresTIng and openg by no means slmple. Sure we have our par- Tlersl Doesn'T every complex? Kappa also has whaT some people would sTereoType as 'Jocks,' 'geeks,' 'welrdos,' 'goody Two- shoes' and 'braIns.'

ECOS was almost 520,000 ln debt. So, the Student Admini- stration, at that time, felt it was necessary to restructure the budget by producing a new Consti- tution ln order to reduce the deflclt. Their new Constitution also ellmlnated two officers from the Executive Council: the Director of External Affalrs and the Human Resource Dlrecton Though thls Constltutlon served its purpose ln reducing the defl- clt, lately there have been com- plaints concerning the wording of many of the articles. According to past-president Andy Haines and current ECOS vlce- presldent Cand president-elect for next year's ECOS? Wayne Harwell, the sections deallng with the role of the Executive Council, the role of the Dean of Students and the veto power of the president are not clean Chris Roby, also a newly- elected ECOS officer for next year, agrees, and is worklng on a newer, more comprehensive version of our Constitution. The major problem with the current Constitution seems to be the document ltself. The impre- clse wording of many of the articles and long lists of bylaws make it dltflcult to interpret. Though the re-wording of state- ments ln the Constitution ls the maln thrust of this group of leaders, there are also changes ln the structure of ECOS which will be submitted to the Legislative Councll for ratificatlom The proposed changes Include: t a change ln the date of elections f specification of the role of the Finance Dlrectorand Finance Director-elect concerning budget proposals t the addition of Election and Media Commlttee Direct- ors to the Executive Councll t the appointing of someone to maintain an archives for future reference t appointing the Constitution Regulations Commlttee the rlght to decide judicial review 4 the separation of student programming and student government by removing the Student Actlvltles Board from the Executive Council The change of electlon date has met with little lf any opposltlom Most agree that the extra tlme ln office for newly elected offlclals would be beneficial for the organization. They could learn the responsibilities of their position earller ln the academic year. The second proposal is more of a clarlflcatlon than a change. ln the past there has been some question to whether the Finance Director or the Finance Director- elect has the responslbillty of drawlng up the budget for the This would make the budget proposal a joint effort, lf ratified The proposed Election and Media Committees Directors as Executive Council members would delegate responsiblity for running elec- tlons and regulating campus media. The current Constitution doesn't provide for these needs, and there has been some difficulty ln deciding who ln ECOS, if anyone, should head these actlvitles. The new Constitution would designate the ECOS vlce-president as the keeper of the archives This would ensure the safe-keeping of club charters and other documents of lmportance, which ln the past have had a tendency to be misplaced. At present, there ls no record of the actlvltles and decisions made by previous ECOS members. upcoming yean The major change ln the Constitution would be the removing of the Student Activities Board CSABD from the Executive Council. This is met with strong opposi- tlon by past-president Andy Haines. Halnes revealed, "6OZ of the money allocated for student actlv- ltles goes to the SABN He claims, Uthls money must be kept ln student control.n But Harwell, Roby and Campus Actlvltles Director Barry McDowell feel ECOS ls getting too Involved ln student programming and ls tal llng short of their pledge to urepresent the interests of the student body, promote campus unity, and lobby on behalf of student Interests on and off campus.N Granted, the SAB ls a councll under ECOS headed by the Dlrector of Student Activities, but that ls not the sole purpose of ECOS. Roby points to the problem of the late dlstrlbutlon of fall semester flnal grades. NThat's the klnd of thing ECOS should be concerned with.n Haines feels the reason SAB duties have fallen on the Executive Council in general is because we have yet to have a Nvery dedicatedu Director of Student Activities. He has a lot of faith in the system, and insists it can work Wwith the right Dlrectonn lf implemented, the change would free ECOS of any obllgatlons to the SAB. The Student Actlvl- tles Board would be an independent organization, thereby permlttlng ECOS to attend to other responsi- billtles. lt wlll be up to the Legisla- tive Council to decide lf this alteration ln the structure of our student government ls Justlfled.

Shana Smith, Science Writer A developer gazed lnTo The Florida sunseT, largely Ignoring The sllhoueTTes of The sTubby mangroves In fronT of him. His ThoughTs were on TourIsTs and The lmpacT ThaT This sITe would have on new visiTors To Florida He walked down To The clear, warm waTer and smlled wlTh saTls- facTIon as a school of sand TrouT darTed away and fisherman In The dIsTance played Their lines To hook Them A few weeks laTer The developer reTurned, and wlThln a few monTh's Time The mangroves were cleared and a resorT was buIIT. The sunseTs conTlnued nIghT afTer nIghT, buT The waTer Turned muddy brown and The fish dlsap- peared. The developer was In desperaTion, for he had desTroyed The supporT of The beauTy and life which he had seen ThaT nighT. The mangroves were gone. when one mangrove dles, IT ls decomposed by bacTerIa, fungi, and Tlny animals such as nemaTodes lworms and amphlpods which are collecTively known as deTrlTo- voresl. The parTicles of semldecomposed mangrove are Then elTher consumed by Tlsh or swepT ouT and fllTered Through The seagrass beds ouTlylng The mangrove ToresT, where furTher decomposITlon Takes place. This Is The naTural course of Thlngs. The complex energy Transfer sysTem of The mangroves and The sea- grasses allows for abundanT life However when hundreds of mangrove Trees are uprooTed, The sysTem becomes overwhelmed, and The consequences can be dls- asTrous. Llke coral reefs, mangrove eccv sysTems are fragile buT lmporTanT ones, and Their lmporTance In conserving The naTural beauTy of Florlda's coasTllne musT be rea- llzed. There are four species of man- groves ln Florida. lnTeresTlngly, none of The species are Taxonomi- cally reIaTed To each oTher In any way oTher Than ThaT They all have adapTIons for livlng In a salTy envIronmenT. Thus, mangrove Trees have The ablllTy To llve where oTher Trees cannoT. The mosT Tamlliar mangrove ls maggie, The red man- grove. IT has large, red prop rooTs and is cIosesT To The waTer's edge. The prop rooTs are ofTen encrusTed wlTh barnacles and eaTen away by a small species of plll bug known as Sphagggma Quad: AT a sIIghTIy higher eIevaTlon is n.llLd.a, The black mangrove. IT Is Tound along The souTh seawall of Eckerd College and can be idenTIfied by rooTs which sTIck up around each Tree like dead fingers. The boTTom slde of The leaf of The mangrove Is sparkly and sllver wlTh salT crysTals ThaT are excreTed so ThaT The Tree can survive. Higher up from The waTer and noT as common is Lacemgsa, The whlTe mangrove. AT The highesT Tldal zone Is The knarled, somewhaT raTTy-looking buTTonwood from which drlfTwood is formed. Mangroves In general have no ToleraTlon of cold, and Thus They are found In Tropical locaTlons. Cedar Key, Florida Is an area ThaT can be considered a NTransITIon zoneu beTween mangrove ecosysTems and more Temperafe salTmarsh ecosysTems. Several years ago a freeze kII led off The mangrove Trees In The Cedar Keys. All ThaT was lefT was Their skeleTal remains. The ecological effecT was consider- able, only now are seedlings be- glnnlng To grow. ST. Pefersburg, by conTrasT, ls rich In mangroves, buT They are now experiencing devasTaTIon by oTher, arTIflclal causes Mangroves do many Things To make Florida beauTIful. AlThough noT as sTaTely as The Florida sable palm or as Tall as The AusTrallan plne Tree, They are almosT savagely Tropical and jusT as beauTiTul. An aTTernoon canoe Trlp spenT winding Through Indian Key, rIghT near Eckerd College, Is like a Trlp To The Amazon. The life ThaT is supporTed by mangrove foresTs, from perlwlnkle snails, fiddler crabs, and Tree crabs To raccoons and greaT blue herons, ls boTh rlch and diverse wlThln The Tangled rooTs and leaves Of foremosT lmporTance To humans is ThaT mangroves and The surrounding seagrasses form a habITaT upon which baby fish--The ones ThaT Turn lnTo The blggesT TrouT, redflsh, barracuda, whiTIng, and so on--are dependenT. FurThermore, mangroves keep The waTer clear and proTecTed by Trapping sedlmenTs and polluTanTs In Their rooTs and building up dense Islands and coasTllnes which acT as buffers To sTorms. Thus The developer who builT ThaT resorT did more Than jusT ruin a prime siTe. He desTroyed a llfe source, depIeTed The game flsh In The area, and scarred his smal I parT of The coasT. Produc- TIvITy, boTh In TourisT dollars and In mangrove energy ouTpuT, was depleTed as well. UnforTunaTely, This Is noT an uncommon problem In The unproTecT- ed mangrove slTed in Florida. A large percenTage of mangrove areas are proTecTed by law or by The NaTional Audubon SocIeTyp mosT of These are wlThln The Everglades, where IITe sysTems Thrive undis- Turbed. The governmenT has had a huge lmpacT on mangrove conservaTlon, buT because unproTecTed areas are so vulnerable and because Their desTrucTlon has such an exTreme Toll on The envlronmenT, a problem sTIl I remains. The sunseTs wlll always be beauTlful In Florida. So wlll The land and The coasT, If d6velOpmenT ls planned wlTh care. Mangroves -- The skeleTon of coasTaI FlorIda's appeal, provides boundless life and beauTy. BuT as iT is wlTh anyThing ThaT is alive, a body whose skeleTon is wrenched ouT fal ls aparT and dies. T5 Why do fTl3l'll1G m8l'TTl'Tl3lS Stl'3l'lCl tl"lEmS6lVGS? Shana Smith, Science Writer lT is common belief ThaT life came from The sea, The evoluTion of llfe on land is oTTen plcTureC as a single evenT when Thousands of advanced sea-animals crawled ouT of The ocean To walk on land. Of course, evoluTion works much more slowly, and such a develop- menT would Take mil lions of years. Marine mammals have Taken The process a sTep furTher in ThaT Their ancesTors, once land ani- mals, reTurned To The sea and adapTed To a compleTely aquaTlc lifesTyle. For This reason, lT's a dramaTlc sighT To see a boTTle- nosed dolphin lying in a piT of sand aT low Tide or a mass of pygmy sperm whales sTranded on The beach. BoTh of These cases are common along The beaches of Florida, and boTh single and mass sTrandings have been reporTed in a wide varieTy of species. As soon as an animal has sTranded iTselT, if iT is sTill alive, iT is vulnerable, and can be helped or harmed by humans. There are Two basic Types of marine mammal sTrandings ThaT are reporTed: single sTrandings and mass sTrandings. The boTTlenosed dolphin is by far The mosT commonly reporTed in cases of single sTrandings, wiTh over a hundred sTrandings per year being reporTed on The average. The second mosT commonly re- porTed single sTranded animal ls The pygmy sperm whale. OTher species reporTed include The sperm whale, spoTTec dolphin, spinner dolphin, killer whale, false kil- ler whale, piloT whale, and, par- Ticularly ln Florida, The wesT Indian manaTee. lnshore species are ofTen found washed up dead, whereas The offshore species, such as some of The larger whales, are found mosT ofTen alive. The impli- caTlon here is ThaT The lnshore animals, accusTomec Tc Tidal va- rlaTlon and nearby land masses, die from some naTural cause, such as disease or old age, and are 16 Then washed ashore. ln The case of The larger more offshore species, iT is likely ThaT They may Travel inshore accl- denTally, become disorienTed, and Thus beach Themselves. Animals such as The pygmy sperm whale, which depend on Thiamlne- rlch squid ln Their dieT, become Thlamine-deficienT lf They remain lnshore Too long. This resulTs in cardiac problems and a TurTher likelihood of sTranding. Mass sTrandings are a more dramaTlc and mysTerious Type of sTranding. All of The animals involved are offshore species, almosT almosT always sTill alive, and, no maTTer how oTTen They may be seT free, They wil l consTanTly resTrand. There are several Theories ex- plaining The mass sTranding pheno- menon. To explain how deepwaTer animals arose in The shal low wa- Ters in The firsT place, lT is believed ThaT swirling eddies, gyraTlng off of The Loop CurrenT in The Gulf of Mexico and The Gulf STream in The ATlanTic Oceam migraTe Through The deep shipping channels, carrying The offshore species wlTh Them. EvenTually, The eddies break up very close To shore, and aT once The animals become disorienTed and musT choose a direcTion in which To swim.The leader of The whale pod will make This choice, and The oThers in The pod follow him. lf he makes The wrong choice and swims Toward land, The resulT is mass sTrand- ing. The fol low-The-leader concepT ls The likely cause of mosT mass sTrandings. If The leader is af- TllcTed wlTh ear parasiTes, for example, his sonar becomes dis- rupTed and he ls likely To sTrand himself ln shallow waTer slTua- Tions. The oTher animals ln The pod follow him This explains why mosT mass- sTranded animals are ln apparenT good healTh, and iT could explain why They conslsTenTIy resTrand Themsel ves when seT free, in The absence of Their dying leaden Marine mammal sTrandings are large crowd-gaTherers. People can boTh help and harm a live anlmalg lT ls lmporTanT To keep The animal as free from harm as possible. The firsT Thing ThaT should be done when a llve marine mammal ls discovered ls To Try To geT iT back inTo deeper waTer. lf The animal is Too large, keeps re- sTranding lTself, or is dead, Then elTher The NaTional Marine Fish- eries Servlcei893-3841, ST.PeTe offlcei, The Florida Marine PaTrol 4893-22217 or Dr. John Reynolds fEckerd College: 866-11663 should be conTacTed. Meanwhile, a live animal should be kepT weT wlTh lighT-colored Towels, To keep The animal cool and To prevenT lT from drying ouT in The sun. WaTer should be kepT away from The blow- hole, as This could resulT ln pneumonia. Do noT Touch a dead animal-- humans are prone To The same diseases as marine mammals, which may be conTaglous. Finally, IT ls lmporTanT To keep poTenTlal harassers away from The sTranded animal. The fine for harassmenT as sTaTed by The Marine Mammal ProTecTlon AcT of i972 is TwenTy-Thousand dollars, and This includes Taking away parTs of a dead animal. Marine mammals, alThough True mammals, are far removed from The land. They have adopTed a body form, physiology, and social sTrucTure ThaT ls based on surviv- ing and Thriving in The marine envlronmenT. BUT every biological sysTem has lTs compllcaTions, and when adap- TaTlons go haywlre, sTrandings occur. By conTlnulng To do research on The dlfferenT Types of sTrandings, we may be able To give more aid To dlsTressed animals and prevenT Their deaThs. maissanuz, feasting, chem - tnl at hu they iahe in cummun? 9652 !!!

The TlghT agaln5T AparTheId ls noT a new one nor is The demand for dlvesTment 20 The pracTice of raclal segrega- Tlon began as early as 1657 when Trade beTween black Khol herdsmen and whITe seTTlers was forbldden ln SouTh Afrlcans Cape Colony. Much like The UnlTed STaTes drove off The lndlans, The DuTch seT- Tlers came ln and drove off The black Trlbes. Then ln The 1850's SouTh Afrlca became a BrlTlsh colony and when iT finally galned independence The whlTes seT up a raclal socleTy. ln 1910 The black Afrlcans formed The Afrlcan NaTlonal Congress CANCJ whose purpose was To galn more rlghTs for blacks Through peacetul meThods Whlle The ANC sTruggIed To galn rlgnTs for blacks The governmenT segregaTed The land leavlng only Ten percenT To blacks. Then on March 21 in 1960, 69 blacks were shoT by SouTh Afrlcan police during a peaceful demon- sTraTion. Finally ln The 60's The ANC gave up lTs non vlolenf meThods ThaT were noT geTTihg The blacks any more rlghTs and moved To violenf proTesTs. They were Then exiled by The government The acTivlTles dld noT go unnoficed on US college campuses. In 1966 several NaTion- al College organizaTlons goT To- geTher To declare March 14-21 Nafional STudenT Week Agalnsf Aparfheid. The program exposed SouTh Africa's policy of whiTe supremacy . . . in 1960, 69 blacks were shot by South African police during a p e a c e f ul demonstration. and segregaTlon and demanded change in The US policy ldlvesf- menT, racial inTegraTlon of US GovernmenT personnel serving ln SouTh Africa, granTlng assylum To poliTlcal refugeesh IT also publicised films, debafes, and fund raising for SouTh African Defense and Aid Fund. BuT, IT has been suggesfed, The proTesT among American college sTudenTs did noT grow and Take hold aT ThaT Time because The sTudenTs were Trying To end segre- gaTion ln Their own counTry Then, again, There was also The VleTnam war and iTs relaTed pro- TesTs occurring around The same Time. IT was in May of 1977 when perhaps The firsT major anTl- AparTheld demonsTraTIon In The US Took place. Nearly 300 Sfanford Unlverslfy sTudenTs sfaged a rally and sif- ln To proTesT The UniverslTy's 125 million dollars ln sTock invesf- menTs ln SouTh African firms. Florlda colleges have also be- come involved. ln November of 1985 The S1 limes ran an arTlcle concernlng The anTi- AparTheld movemenT aT The Unl- verslTy of Florlda ln Gainsvll le. According To Eckerd college's CompTroller, Alan Bunch, as far as he knows, Eckerd has no money lnvesTed in firms ThaT do business ln SouTh Africa, elTher direcfly or lndirecTly. There ls currenTly a bill pending ThaT would force Florlda To divesT some 2 billion dollars in holdings ln companies ThaT do business in SouTh Africa. Ac- cording To a January Issue of The 51 limes The bill has a good chance of passing This yean Those agalnsT dlvesTmenT say ThaT The corporaflons provide jobs and money To The blacks. However, Pollflcal Science Professor Ken Roberfs feels ThaT alThough The money provides jobs, in The long run iT sTll l ooes To supporT The governmenT and Aparfheld. And There are Those ThaT feel ThaT change musT be made Through The governmenT because a disman- Tllng of The sysfem would cause a poIiTlcal and social revoluTlon and possibly resulT in a Marxlsf- Type AdmlnisTraTion coming To power in SouTh Africa Since Sepfember of 1984, violence because of The baTTle To end AparTheid has claimed over 800 lives, mosT of Them black. 4,500,000 whiTe SouTh Africans are The only ones allowed To vofe in a counTry wiTh a ToTal popula- Tion of 28,7000,000.

According to Eckerd College 's Comptroller, Alan Bunch, as far as he knows, Eckerd has no money invested in South Africa. An arTicle ln USA Igggy DY Franklin H. Williams discuses The UniTed STaTes'HconsTrucTive en- gagemenTH broughf in by The Reagan AdminisTraTion. While The United STaTes supporTs change ln SouTh Africa and applauds such changes as The inTe- graTlng of some sporTs and removal of some discriminafory signs, Nobel Peace prize winner Bishop Desmond TuTu accuses The govern- menT of giving The appearance of reform calling IT Usuperflclaln Wil liams also wriTes abouT SouTh Africa's NaTional ParTWs pursuif since 1948 To elimlna's The racif' problem by elimlnaTing Dibcki ' Tlrely from SouTh Africa s giving Them Their own SELEVETQ homeland.

Williams ends by saying ThaT majorlfy rule will inevifably come To SouTh Africa and The new lead- ers wlll remember who helped ln Their sTruggle for llberaTion and who hindered iT. He seems To feel ThaT The US ls now among The hinderers. RecenTly The SouTh African GovernmenT exTended an lnviTaTlon To fly TO board members of The It was in May of 1977 when perhaps the first major anti-Apartheid demonstration in the US took place.

That's a stag- gering .5fM:. The flrsT aspecT To hls Theory represenTs a subsTanTlal problem Accordlng To Hallln, 'Why would a good, black sTudenT come To Thls lnsTlTuTlon?n More lmporTanTly, how does This adminlsTraTlon deflne a Ngood, black sTudenT?H WThe goal is To Try and Improve The academlc sTandards so more whiTe and black sTudenTs wlll apply,n accordlng To Hallln.

One proposed parT of This plan ls To Include an SAT requlremenT cuT-off. Dean of Academlcs Lloyd Chapin wanTs ThaT cuT-off To be a score of BOO, accordlng To one CPC member. So, lf This plan goes lnTo eTfecT, wlThln flve years no sTudenT wlll be admiTTed wlTh an SAT score of under 800. Therefore, augood, black sTu- denTU ln The eyes of The admlnlsTraTlon mlghT be one wlTh accepTable SAT scores according To These admlsslons sTandards ThaT aTTlTude In The proposal doesn'T leave much posslblllTy for The fuTure of black sTudenTs aT Eckerd Col lege. Perhaps one day ThaT .55 black freshman enrol lmenT mlghT be a number To shooT for. AlThough There ls no documenTed evldence To sclenTlflcally supporT The fol lowlng, SAT scores may be considered dlscrlmlnaTory. Accordlng To Hallln, lasT year's average scores among senlors speak for Themselves: 'The average SAT score for a 1985 senlor was 906. Of ThaT group Is The following: average NaTlve Amerlcan - 820 average Aslan Amerlcan - 922 average black American - 722 average Chlcano - 808 average PuerTo Rlcan - 778 average HhlTe Amerlcan - 939 In response To SAT's, Dean Mark SmlTh sald, 'SAT's are vlewed by blacks as a TesT for whlTes, by whlTes. . . black sTudenTs approach The TesT wlTh a defensive ITIOFS 23 attltude. Why then, should they take the test serlously?

Look around you. How many students here are successful as community members despite average to low SAT scores? According to Smlth, 'I don't so much worry about the students wlth low SAT scores and hlgh partlclpatlon, but rather hlgh SAT scores and low partlclpatlon.' Afro-American Soclety President and senlor Ernestlne Johnston agrees, 'SAT's do not say what a student can contrlbute. SAT's do "SAT's are vieved by black as a test for whites, by whites. " -Mark Smith not prove your capabilities Anyone can learn lf they have a wlll to learn.N But even with a strong Wwlll to learnn and a shot at col lege ac- ceptance, blacks yet have another hurdle. That hurdle Just may tear apart all the good done by the Clvll Rights Movement. NLast funded, flrst cut from the hudget,' sald Welch at the FBSA conference. That's part of what Gramm-Rudman wlll do. Welch contlnued,UAfflrmatlve Actlon, Black Student Unions. 17- bllllon cut from domestlc programs -- welfare, soclal servlces -- poor peoplefblack people wlll be hlt from all sldes.n ls the Gramm-Rudman law lntentlonally dlscrlmlnatory, or ls lt Just an accldent? The Supreme Court heard arguments In late Aprll on the constitution- allty of the law. Untll any change ls made stu- dents, malnly black students, wlll suffer dearly. 'This wlll certainly accelerate the trend of decllnlng black and Hispanic partlclpatlon ln post- secondary educatlon,H contends Arnold Mltchem, director of the National Councll of Educational Opportunity Associations.lNptlce also, that blacks and Hlspanlcs are already hit with the lowest SAT scoresl 24 ls Gramm-Rudman law intentionally discriminatory, or is it just an accident? As much as 80 to 90 percent of the students ln black colleges recelve some flnanclal ald, Mltchem says. We're already beglnnlng to feel lt here at Eckerd as almost 751 of our students, black and whlte recelve flnanclal aid. As the award letters came ln many stu- dents saw federal ald belng cut at exorbitant rates. That's only the beginning. Reported by Welch, WGramm-Rud- man Is designed to reduce the budget deflclt to zero by 1991. Two-bil llon dol lars wlll be cut from financial ald in two years -- 635-mllllon from the 1986 budget, and that Includes Guaranteed Student Loans KGSLL . . private schools wil l increase tultlon by 71 per year. Programs with llmlted enrollment will go.. . black programs will be hlt the hardest.. . there will be layoffs and naturally, salary cuts for faculty.U So, as our Eckerd Administra- tlon works on its own five-year plan for academic excellence, Gramm-Rudman wlll be almlng at black students from the flnanclal slde. uSome say all those hard tlmes are ln the past.. . Thlngs are going to get worse, they haven't been good,n Welch added. "Some say all those hard times are in the past. . . things are go- ing to get worse, they haven't been good." -Giovanna Welch So, what are the posslbllltles for blacks ln higher educatlon? Where ls the future for any child that's not whlte? There are many probabllltles. Most look bleak though. The black individual ls faced with probably the most dlsturblng future ever seen before. They won their Clvll Rights and got a taste of equality. But, wlthout the slightest warning, those same rights so strongly fought for are being ripped from beneath the foundation of The black movement. Welch remarked, nwhen Martln Luther Klng's Era reaped lts benefits and we had people move into the area that they had never been before, It was slgnlflcantf However, Welch added that ln order to stay ln that newly discovered place, concessions had to be made. NOne way to stay In Integrated society was to keep our mouths shut. Mayors, Councilmen don't want to hear -- we had 20 years of Clvll rlghts, money for education, money to squander -- so we kept our mouths shut. NMany of us aren't wil ling to take a chance -- we don't want to lose what we had -- but all those programs that moved In our favor "You can never make the case that you've done all you can." -Dick Hallin ' 'One way to stay in in- gegrated society was to keep our mouths shut. " -Giovanna Welch are movlng rlght out the door.H As those opportunltles roll out the door, the tlme for change grows shorter. Wlthout educated blacks, who wlll go back lnto the black communltles and reach out to the black youth to change their bleak future? 'lf colleges keep squeezing black students, they Just set-up a dependent, young, black genera- tlon and I hope lt doesn't come to that,' contends Lena Wllfalk, Director of Mlnorlty and Interna- tlonal Student Affairs at Eckerd She adds, WKII I the Head fthe movementl and the Body wlll dle fthe peoplel.H L .3 75 LIJ it 3 4-1 5 Ll.

AusTralla follows England In many ways, Including sporTs. However, AusTralla has developed a few of Thelr own sporTs, such as Rugby and Aussle Rules. In boTh counTrles The main consensus of The publlc and Those who parTlclpaTe ln sporTs ls ThaT American sporTs aren'T near as physical Iy demanding as Theirs. I had ofTen heard commenTs such as, 'your aThIeTes don'T wanT To geT any bruises or scars because They may have To appear on a T.V. commercial Tomorrow.' American sporTs are very dlfferenf from many oTher counTrles. AusTraIlan aThIeTes are popular for Thelr sporTs, noT The klnd of shoes They wear or whaT klnd of car They can flT Thelr overslzed bodles lnTQ The Two counTrles are playing almosT separaTe games. U.S. sporTs have become exfremely commerclal. OTher Than The co merclallsm, There are many oTher differences. EqulpmenT ls deflnlTeIy a negaTIve Issue wlTh The AusTraI Ians. AusTraI Ians only wear al mlnlmal amounT of safeTy equlpmenT. Are U.S. sporTs compeTlTors as Tough as Thelr InTernaTlonaI counferparfs? A U.S. fooTbaII fan would be surprlsed To see an AusTraIlan fooTball maTch. AusTralla has Three Types of foofballz rugby, soccer and Aussle rules. The IaTTer Is The mosT comparable Type To U.S. fooTbaIl excepT no safeTy equlpmenT ls worn. Nhlle U.S. fooTball players proTecT Themselves To The fuIIesT exTenT, Aussle rules players wear only a mlnlmal amounT of safeTy equlpmenT. They feel lT's more manly To play The game wIThouT all The pads and helmeTs ThelLS. players use. AusTrallans feel The sporTs They play separafe The men from The boys. CrIckeT ls a popular sporT Throughouf The world, however, The U.S. has noT yeT adopTed Thls sporT. Crlckef Is comparable To baseball excepT The players do noT wear gloves and The bafs are qulTe dlfferenT. The baTs are approxlmafely flve To seven Inches In wldTh and Two and a half feeT In lengTh. The plTcher ls called a bowler and he bounces The ball Towards The wlckef la Three fooT Type of TargeTI Trylng To hlT IT. The baTTer has To hlT The ball and If The bat I hlTs The wlckeT, The baTTer Is ouT. Once The baTTer hlTs The ball, he does noT have To run. Only when he feels he can make a successful run does he move. The dIsTance he runs Is abouT equal To ThaT of The dlsTance befween home and flrsTI AT The oTher end of The run Is anoTher baTTer and wIckeT so Tre runners musT change posITIons To score one run. If The viewer Tries To compare IT To baseball, he will have a hard Tlme undersTandIng The game. AI- Though There are slmllarlTles, There are also many differences.
