But -- contrary to the dirty, crowded image some may think of -- when we take a closer look, we see that students can enjoy many beautiful places just miles away, like the Parkway, Boathouse Row, the Waterfront and the Art Museum. Though from afar Temple is just another urban campus, upon taking a closer look we can find many beautiful spots to enjoy nature. 10 11 12 1 ft nd th ■ « t Played On... ■ 14 The food court has not only been a place to catch a bite, but for students to participate in stimulating con- versation and bench philosophy for over a decade.

This environment forces us to take care of ourselves, unless we happen to bunk with our mothers. The rooms can be cramped and the food may be stale, but we learn to call the dorms home. 29 30 31 so iLk wo Three words best describe Dr. LeRoy M. Carl, a 1952 Temple graduate and the man to whom the 1995 Templar is dedicated: Dedication. Loyalty. And a love for students. For over four decades, Dr. Carl has served Temple University. His is a record of boundless energy, channeled to a tireless commitment to Temple ' s mission. His accomplishments are many. He is a Lindback Award winner; recipient (1986) of the Stauffer Award for distinguished faculty service; holder of the Great Teacher Award (1989); former chairman of the Department of Journalism. Twenty years ago, he organized the Department ' s first public relations curriculum and was, for many more years, the head of the Public Relations Sequence. As such, he conducted endlessly exciting classes, passing his enthusiasm for communication, public relations, and Temple on to his students. He retired in 1992. Since 1985, he has served as director of the Outstanding Achievement Scholars Program: from his office on the second floor of Mitten Hall, he is advisor, mentor, and friend to more than 300 exceptional students, of whom our managing editor is one. As a former chapter director of the Sigma Pi fraternity ' s Temple chapter, he is also there for former and present Sigma Pi fraternity brothers across the country. And his support of intercollegiate athletics, especially football, is legendary. He has provided counsel and leadership to the Varsity Club and the Owl Fund committee. In his spare time, Dr. Carl is also a prizewinning science writer, artist, and poet. The Templar owes Dr. Carl a special debt of gratitude. In the early 1970 ' s, the Templar was put out of production due to both student demand -- at that time, students paid for and received the Templar whether they liked it or not, and so they called for its demise -- and administrative reaction to the sentiments expressed by students in that era. But Dr. Carl believed in the Templar and in the need for every university to have, for posterity, a representation of many student voices. And after three years of his and others ' tireless efforts, Templar returned The Templar is proud to invite you to " take a closer look " at Dr. Carl.

If we take a closer look, we will notice more than just pierced ears at Temple. Though not as permanent as say, a tattoo, the scars left by body-piercing involve more than just iodine. These scars mark body-piercers as " cool. " Beginning in the Gothic and Punk eras, years back, body-piercing is beginning to reach even the mainstream student body here at Temple. Real body-piercing enthusiasts can opt for tongue, eyebrow, cfoeek, lip, nipple, or even genitalia piercing. But most feel that a sharp hole in the side of the nose or through the septum (the middle of the nose) is maverick enough. One " sa fe " piercing that many girls opt for is " navel-piercing. " A belly-button ring is " safe " because they can hide it from their parents and other higher authorities. South Street is usually the place for a pierce. But expect to shell out the cash -- anywhere from $60 to $300 and up. Or people can do it themselves, with a pin ajid some ice. But expect pain -- and possibly infection. photo by I).

In fact, I had this dream one night . . . I was late to class. I missed my ride, the bus was gone, and the subway was broken because of some SEPTA reason. I grabbed my sign and hitched my thumb and got on the highway... I watched all the cars go by. I knew one of these drivers either went to Temple U. or knew someone who did . . . I waited on the highway, watching William Penn stand still on top of City Hall. I swear he winked at me... Then Ben Franklin picked me up and gave me some pointers for my philosophy class What a flirt!. And then I woke up, late. I missed my ride, the bus was gone, and the subway was broken because of some SEPTA reason . . . I decided to walk to school that day. 46 S-rnfld £trp«1 o cC rc - - . -. . i m 7r ' L IT . - fl B R «• 1 ■ I 1 .jfl bI tVP r Temple is undeniably a commuter school. In 1994, 90 percent of the university ' s 30,000 students made the trek from home to school and back. Most Temple students willingly put up with the aggravation of commuting because it seems a small price to pay to be able to leave at the end of the day. Let ' s face it, most travel agents do not recommend North Philadelphia when asked for a list of idyllic vacation spots. The fear of crime is the one thing that binds Temple students together, regardless of background. It is into this environment that Temple ' s commuters make their academic pilgrimage. Some walk, some skateboard, some bus and some bike to campus. Most, however, drive or take the train. Driving to campus presents its own set of hurdles for those going for the Temple challenge. The first hurdle is financial. A parking sticker for one academic year costs $30. Gasoline and tolls increase the cost. Top this off with parking tokens, at $1 .43 apiece, and would-be commuters shell out quite a bit to drive to Temple. Once students reach Temple, they ' re confronted with other obstacles. Finding a place to park can try the patience of a saint. In winter, plowed snow can make many spots inaccessible or, conversely, lock a car in place until the spring thaw. For adventurous commuters, there ' s always the infamous Lot 5. Located on the edge of Main Campus at 11th and Diamond Streets, Lot 5 imparts an acute sense of isolation to all who park there. Especially at night. (Toto, I don ' t think we ' re in Kansas any more.) Commuters who take the train face a similar test of courage when walking to the new SEPTA station at 9 p.m., after an evening class. Taking the train presents other obstacles as well. Foremost is the fact that running a railroad is not yet an exact science. In the morning, frantic Temple students often can be seen running from the train station to their classes because the train wasn ' t quite on time. At the end of the day, the students run down Berks Street in the opposite direction, breaking into the SEPTA Sprint when they hear the rumble of their approaching train echoing from the station. Vaulting up the steps while carrying a load of books is guaranteed to test the mettle of any commuter. In winter, rail commuters face their own unique brand of torture. Snowstorms can leave them stranded at the Temple station, Fern Rock, or at any spot along SEPTAs regional rail system. The blizzards of the last few years can add hours to a train trip. After a long stay on campus, getting stranded by SEPTA is hardly the perfect ending to a perfect day. When all is said and done, however, Temple commuters can take pride in the fact that they ' ve gone to both college and the School of Hard Knocks at the same time. Years ago, parents silenced their children ' s complaints by telling them, " You think this is bad? I used to walk five miles barefoot through snow to get to school. " We, however, will be able to shut our kids up by looking them squarely in the eye and saying: " I was a Temple commuter.

Kennedy 53 w hile considerable national attention focuses on gender crime and violence, Temple University ' s Sexual Assault Counseling Education (SACE) department provides a sober information source. SACE ' s vital two-fold complementary efforts are prevention of and education about sexual assault. SACE officials recognize the national statistics and the macro-challenges of sexual harassment in this country. However, SACE ' s job is to tailor prevention and education to Temple University. Cautioning all students, faculty, and staff to reduce their individual risk, SACE workers pursue the policy that one must commit oneself not to take unnecessary chances. Additionally, SACE education I underscores that if a sex crime occurs, we at Temple must perceive the victim as a victim, not " someone • who was asking for it. " In so doing, SACE personnel emphasize a campus-wide sensitivity to both our brave outspoken acquaintances and the silent victims of sexual assault. The statistics of sexual assaults are not encouraging. Reported sexual assalts happen regularly nationwide. However, many sexual crimes — for which only sparse data exists — go unreported for fear of how the police, the neighbors, or the perpetrator may respond. Clearly, SACE ' s sensitivity training encourages Temple to rethink our notion of what culpability befalls the culprit, versus the victim. Sensitivity training could decrease the incidence of sexual crimes; as society recognizes the cruelty of sexual assault, more facilities may be offered for the victims — and, probably, fewer excuses for the perpetrators. In any case, both victims and perpetrators abound. As a non- comprehensive " closer look " at sexual assault, SACE ' s national statistics indicate that one in four women are rape survivors; 84 percent of these know their attacker. Also, 10 percent of all rape survivors are men; nearly all of them are raped by other men, 98 percent of whom are heterosexual. Additionally, while 14 percent of men believe they have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, one out of every two women are estimated to be sexually harassed at some time during their lives. However, don ' t worry. If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault or childhood sexual abuse, SACE offers more than just education and discussion. Confidential crisis intervention such as group therapy — for men and women — is available at SACE ' s offices in the lower level of Sullivan Hall. Finally, SACE fosters and promotes Peer Educators, who in turn provide instruction to the Temple community in order to dispel common myths about sexual assault and to promote sexual assault awareness. Since July 1994, some 4,000 Temple students have received SACE training in dormitory orientations campus-wide. Although the possibility of sexual assault looms large in the United States and probably throughout the globe, operations such as SACE have made and continue to make strong educational and therapeutic inroads. The re- evaluation of how our society deals with the threat, prevention, and the traumatic reactions to sexual assault is underway, and SACE helped make it happen. y: Rpkeit D. nwJviCte 55 Let ' s get photos by C.

Mancini Upon discovering that the vendor pad was being torn down, many students were outraged. Not only because it was dear to them, but because its benches, a class gift, were to be thrown away. A few ambitious students, mainly TSG members, confronted Kristl Wiernicki, Dean of Students, about this dilemma. But as the logistics of the new food court began rolling, students became distracted. Soon the rage was forgotten. The old court was torn down, new court was built, and the class gift forgotten. Why have students lost their spirit to fight? What ever happened to the UCLA- Berkeley collegiate attitude? True, a food court is not as vital as Vietnam. But a protest was organized, initially, to support the food court. Why did it just fizzle out like old soda? Is our generation forgetting that we have a right to ask for what we want? Are we giving up on everything, allowing an institution to make decisions for us? At the end of the fall semester, the TSG president quit his position for just this reason. . . apathy on behalf of the students. Maybe it is time we learned to care.

Judging by the crowd ' s reaction, this was a great way to " Kick-off " the weekend. Sinbad took the stage, joking about his old college days -- the cafeteria, dorm life, money, relationships, and classes. From the audience ' s laughter, it seemed that not much has changed since he was in school. Sinbad joked about cheating, saying his motto was " It ' s better to cheat than to repeat. " He also joked about gender differences, cars, and teachers. After the show, Sinbad greeted the crowd, shaking hands, answering questions, and posing for pictures. All in all, his show was a great success. photo by J. Skocki 62 Evidence of a university, Sample A: Random crowd with beverages at the traditional tailgate party, (photo by J.

Pot and nicotine are prevalent. Students even catch their puffs (of both ) around the Bell Tower. Alcohol is a common weekend drug. There also is the whacky hallucinogen family, including LSD. What is it about American culture that pushes us to reprogram our minds and bodies with outside chemical substances? Is it perhaps the drive towards an impossible ideal, showered upon us by the media, that makes us insecure about ourselves? Do we then feel so bewildered by life that we cannot face life unless we are " not ourselves, " or drugged? And if we use drugs to party. . .why do we need to alter our physical and mental state with chemicals to have fun? Don ' t we feel worthy enough to have fun on our own? Or are we incapable? Not all youth feel this way. Some choose to live a life free from drugs and alcohol. Some of these drug free youths refer to themselves as Straight Edge. They wear their lifestyle on their sleeve, so to speak, branding their clothing, jewelry, or bodies (tattoos) with the movements symbol, an X. (This symbol started when underage customers would go into bars to see bands, and would have their hands marked with an X indicating they could not be served.) Others, though not so branded, choose to avoid drugs for legal, emotional or physical reasons. Whether or not we are Straight Edge, a narcotic abuser, or an occasional loser (whoops, I meant user), we must be aware of the reasons we lead the lifestyles we lead. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx I fifelno differently. 1 X ' SHU. hMc rxctpt ye A»vl TAJ. 4888 W " He vfok your livelihood! a iavofour W( .

Passion, lust, vanity, unity and desire can flourish between two hearts. Companionship is one of the essential ingredients of holistic living. It is well known that people will seek love and make compromises. But it is in the search for love that one may find satisfaction. Conquest is not necessarily the goal, but may sometimes be a disappointment. For humans, every day is Valentine ' s Day, and throughout the generations, Cupid continues to work overtime. In fact, Cupid works harder than Santa and his elves. Some say Cupid is gay, others heterosexual, and others, the compromising bisexual. Eros, the Greek god of love, sits high atop Mt. Olympus, overlooking and influencing verbal and corporeal interactions at Temple University. A wink of the eye, a pursing of the lips, a Jet-soft Hi in passing, standing oh so close, asking obvious questions to these of interest, wearing that pungent perfume, inquiring about another student ' s class schedule, appear as innocuous flirtation.

The opportunity to stop, plop and rock and roll abounds as the area displays a few unsuspecting lunchy ones and echoes reggae, rap, rock. Bands come to play. The Bell Tower serves as a resource for high-voltage fun for the whole campus community. Who needs the eight zillion parades downtown when we have Bob Marley look-alikes dancing to the beat of just one mo ' man? Besides, here it ' s free while downtown is a subway ride away.

Brady started advising fraternities four years before coming to Temple, when he was Director of Student Life at Pace University in New York City. As an Alpha Phi Delta member, he was active in his fraternity and also was on the Greek council. " I feel that being a member of a fraternity helps me identify with the fraternities at Temple, ' Brady said.. Dean Wiernicki and Brady work together on a daily basis. " Ms. Wiernicki advises the fraternities and handles the administrative side of Greek life, while I advise the sororities and act as program advisor, Brady said. Greek student leaders are different than many other student leaders because they have a very strong loyalty and attachment to Temple, ' Brady said. There is also a fraternal bond that brings Greeks together in a way you don t see with other organizations. The traditional perception of a Greek organization member needs to change, " Brady said. " Greek organizations need to better identify what the student of the nineties represents, because modern students have different needs and interests, (and) because fraternities do play an important part of campus life. " The Greeks want Temple to know that they take a lot of pride in their school, as opposed to a lot of the apathy on campus. They are very frustrated by the apparent lack of interest and unsure about where they fit in at Temple, " Brady said.

Dean of Students Kristl L. Wiernicki has been working with Greek organizations since l H. Since then, she has been trying to get them officially recognized by Temple. Dean Wiernicki is responsible for keeping the Greek chapter presidents informed of what the administration is doing. She advises Greek organizations in disciplinary process, nominates them or their representatives for awards, and calculates their academic standings. She also reviews applications of groups who wish to be recognized, and she helps out with the publicity for events — either social or philanthropic — that different Greeks put on. ' The Greek organizations are the unsung heroes in volunteer ism ' . She added. ' The effort that Sigma " Pi put into renovating their house and the " Russell Conwell house showed that the Greek organizations are able to put their resources and money into building something that improves the neighborhood. I think that if all the Greeks were to direct their efforts as well as Sigma " Pi did, they would be able to drastically improve this neighborhood.

Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority (ASA) was founded on November 15, 1901 in Farmville, Virginia; the Kappa chapter was established at Temple in 1922. This sorority was the first on campus, and its members are proud of their heritage. ASA ' s aim is to establish a strong sisterhood with a fourfold objective: physical excellence, intellectual growth, well-rounded socialization, and the individual ' s spiritual development. ASA participates in events that are geared toward these four aims. Examples of these events are aerobics, tennis, volleyball, swimming, and running. An emphasis on academics is recognized also through weekly study sessions and a minimum acceptable grade point average of 2.0. Further, more than 10 scholarships are offered for members and non members. ASA is extremely active on campus. The sorority sponsors such activities as trips to the New Jersey shore, mixers with fraternities, formals, holiday dinners, and teas with alumni. ASA members also are active in Temple Student Government. Each sister is encouraged to develop her own individuality to her fullest potential. Alpha Sigma Alpha ' s national philanthropy is the Special Olympics. The sorority also serves the community through sponsoring food and clothing drives. ALPHA PHI ALPHA FRATERNITY, INC. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. was founded by seven young men at Cornell University on December 4, 1906. These men, the Seven Jewels of Alpha Phi Alpha, wrote a page for themselves in African-American history by establishing the first Greek-letter organization for black men during a time of racial degradation. Since then, the motto " Manly Deeds, Scholarship, and Love for all Mankind " has been an inspiration as its brotherhood sought to uplift the populace of Africa America. Not only did they implement massive education and voter registration campaigns, but they were also influential in the establishment of the NAACP and the United Negro College Fund. The fraternity ' s membership of more than 125,000 brothers includes men such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., W.E.B. DuBois, Thurgood Marshall, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Paul Robeson, Jesse Owens, and Duke Ellington. Always expanding, Alpha Phi Alpha established its Pi Rho chapter at Temple University on September 16, 1985. Though it is a fairly young chapter, it has maintained the service ideals of its Jewels with programs such as Literary Day, Project Alpha, Temple October Art Gallery, African American Awareness Week, along with a number of other cultural and intellectual programs.

" 9 DELTA SIGMA THETA SORORITY, INC. On January 13, 1913, on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C., twenty-two aspiring young African American women envisioned a sisterhood based on Christian principles and love. Through these proud and ambitious women, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was formed. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has chapters located in the United States, Liberia, Germany, Haiti, Korea, and the Caribbean. The sorority ' s national programs have included voter registration, Summit II, and the " Just Say No to Drugs " campaign. Delta Sigma Theta sisters also run other community services centering around their Five-Point Trust Program in the areas of educational development; economic development; housing and urban development; community and international development; and physical and mental health. Some well-known members of Delta Sigma Theta include Lena Home, Ruby Dee, Roberta Flack, Nancy Wilson, Shirley Chisolm, Nikki Giovanni, Winnie Mandela, and Camille Cosby. Locally, the Epsilon Delta Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta was chartered at Temple University on July 26, 1960 by 14 sorority sisters. Traditional programs of Epsilon Delta include voter registration drives, food and clothing drives for the homeless, Black History Month celebrations, fashion shows, and semi-formal dances. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. recognizes the special needs in our communities and around the world. Its public motto, " Intelligence is the Torch of Wisdom, " summons all individuals to be all that they can be. 19! ofl £(§) 108 DELTA ZETA SORORITY Delta Zeta was founded on October 24, 1902 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Delta Zeta is the second largest NPC sorority in the nation. Scholarship and diversity are the primary ideals that Delta Zeta members strive to attain. Delta Tau, Temple University ' s Delta Zeta chapter, was organized in 1987. Many of its members are in honorary societies such as the Order of Omega. In addition to participating in various campus activities, Delta Zeta members are active in intramural powder puff football and softball, Temple University Student Government, and service projects. Delta Zeta ' s national philanthropy is to provide aid for speech- and hearing-impaired persons. Temple ' s chapter has several fund raising events throughout the year, including its annual volleyball tournament during Spring Fling. (3 t I t 109 PHI SIGMA SIGMA SORORITY, INC. An international sorority founded in 1913, Phi Sigma Sigma began at Hunter College in New York City. Phi Sigs can be found across the nation and abroad. The Xi chapter was chartered at Temple University on October 16, 1926. Since then, the sorority has grown steadily in membership and campus involvement. Phi Sigma Sigma now has more than 50 members. They participate in organizations ranging from intercollegiate athletics to the Greek national honor society, the Order of Omega. Phi Sigs strive for academic excellence and the betterment of society through community service. Throughout the year, Phi Sigs are actively involved with several philanthropic programs to raise money for the National Foundation of Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority. This, in turn, provides funding for health research to nationally organized community service programs such as the National Kidney Foundation. The sorority also offers loans and scholarships for educational purposes to its members. SIGMA PHI EPSILON FRATERNITY The Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity offers many services to Temple University and the North Philadephia community. Sig Ep brothers provide assistance for Temple organizations such as Disability Resources and Services. They also go outside Temple to provide assistance for the Atwater Kent Museum in Center City, which contains artifacts of Philadelphia ' s history. Sig Ep ' s philanthropies include multiple sclerosis research, Project 2000, and the Mayor ' s Commission for Disabilities. The fraternity also offers a " Balanced Man Scholarship " to incoming freshman members. The Temple chapter began offering this scholarship last year. As its name implies, successful candidates must have not only good high school records in academics, but also must have participated in sports or band as well as community or extracurricular activities.

The brothers of Alpha Epsilon Pi realize that the adjustment period is difficult, and they understand the need for social outlets. AEPi gives students more than just parties. Brothers enjoy the benefits of a fraternity rich in a tradition begun 80 years ago. Since its beginning at New York University, AEPi has expanded to over 100 campuses in North America. It boasts the number-one academic record of all national fraternities. It also boasts such alumni as Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Gene Wilder and Jerry Lewis. Since the re-founding of AEPi ' s Temple chapter, members have been committed to making college life more enjoyable. They usually have at least one social event a week (often with a sorority) or host one of their famous " concert events. " Sports-minded brothers can participate in AEPi ' s basketball, football, Softball and volleyball teams. Most of all, AEPi offers men the opportunity to grow, to make the lifelong friends that only brotherhood can bring, and to learn to work with others in a cooperative effort. ••• %m GREEK ORGANIZATIONS NOT LISTED ELSEWHERE ALPHA EPSILON PHI SORORITY, INC.

TSG also sponsors multicultural events and community programs that focus on underprivileged people. TSG is just one of the student governing bodies at Temple. The Johnson-Hardwick-Peabody dormitory complex has its own senate, the New Residence Hall and Temple Towers each have their own as well. Temple ' s fraternities and sororities also are self-governed. 117 SCOTT RICHARD THE INDEPENDENT TRUCKERS IN 1994 The Independent Truckers ' upset victory fired off the 1994-95 school year for Temple Student Government. The Independent Truckers had been trying to get their candidate, Scott " Skip " Richard, into the TSG Presidency since 1993. However, Bryce Weatherly, a more centrist candidate, had won handily in that election. But the Truckers came back for the 1994 election with both a common-sense platform and a desire to get things done at TSG, not to engage in politicking. Further, another candidate who seemed to be ahead had resigned on charges that he had fraudulently put down a false social security number under his signature of another candidate ' s nomination sheet. Richard neither resembled nor acted lik e a traditional student body president. However, he was a persuasive and reasoned orator — aided by his fine baritone voice, which he had developed by singing throughout high school with the Philadelphia Boys Choir and, once, with Luciano Pavarotti. However, Richard resigned in December, 1994. He gave several reasons. One was the " lack of concern " of Temple ' s administration. Another was his disagreement with a Board of Trustees policy that denies students ' voting representation on Board committees, as well as its refusal to appoint a voting student to the Board. Richard further criticized the board ' s committee on j athletics for voting to eliminate three sports from Temple ' s |J roster: men ' s and women ' s gymnastics, and men ' s baseball. The Board of Trustees, in a general meeting eight days after Richard resigned, voted to retain the three sports. Richard also called the TSG body " ineffective and non- supportive " and Temple ' s student body, apathetic and uncaring. However, Richard also said he feared scheduling conflicts would interfere with his performance as president if he stayed on. After graduating in February, 1995, he plans to tour the country this spring with his band, The Bloodhound Gang. The band, which is signed to Cheese Factory Records, has recently released its first album. Clinton Cummings, TSG Vice President, assumed the presidency, according to the TSG constitution. Cummings, a friend of Richard, had the former president ' s support. " Now I can give Clinton an opportunity to prove himself, " Richard said.

Its advisor is Dr. LeRoy M. Carl. OAS members all came to college on a scholarship; they all did very well in high school. However, Dr. Carl believes that a college education is more than majors and textbooks. To him, college is about learning about other people, about getting involved in campus activities, about trying new things, about maturing socially. That ' s what the Temple experience was like for him, and that is what he tries to pass on to OAS members. Steve Long, OAS President, carries out these goals by coordinating social activities for OAS members, on which they all vote. OAS members have hot-dog roasts at the Bell Tower. They go off campus to dinner. OAS members also have a literary magazine, Oasis, which contains artwork, poetry, and short stories.

" The club is designed to provide a social environment that fosters different cultures, " said Toan T. Nguyen, TASA President. " We plan to provide activities such as cultural shows as well as social functions. " Further, he said, " We are attempting to increase the involvement of Asian students in campus life outside of academics. We hope to open the minds of others to aspects of various Asian cultures in the process. " " We are still a new organization that has a wealth of ideas and enthusiasm, " Nguyen said. spf i.e. A. bet ye; Air wh lee opt atii za; ASOCIACION DE ESTUDIANTES LATINOS Asociacion de Estudiantes Latinos (AEL) exists to provide a home base and a voice for Temple ' s Latino students. It pro- vides an arena in which Latino s, who come from varied ethnic backgrounds, can share their common culture as well as intro- duce the rest of us to it. AEL does this through activi- ties such as the Latino Cultural Extravaganza, cultural trips to museums, and Latino Heritage Month, which brings Latino food, films, and dancing to campus. AEL has also brought Latino professionals to campus to advise students on career paths. Latinos, like many African Americans, can feel like outsiders in the United States ' workforce. Because of the paucity of Latinos at Temple, Latino students can feel isolated on campus. To offset this, AEL and the Latino Initiative Committee are working with Temple administration to recruit and retain Latino faculty, staff, and students. " We bring the Latino culture to Temple by educational, cultural, and academic means, " said Monica Her- nandez, AEL Treasurer. " We are one of the largest student organizations on campus. " 120 AFRICAN STUDENT UNION The African Student Union, with 6,000 members, is one of the largest student organizations at Temple. ASU ' s primary function is community outreach. As such, ASU offers enrichment seminars, a motivational speaking series, and other educational workshops. " We have tutorial programs at area high schools, i.e., William Penn, with others coming soon, " said A. Keith Hespeth, ASU Advertising Chair. ASU also participated in the First Annual Pan African Unity Kwanzaa Festival, held the week between Christmas and New Year ' s. This year ' s Kwanzaa included a spiritual reading; African folktales; and the Seven Principles, which are Unity, Self-Determination, Col- lective Work and Responsibility, Co- operative Economics, Purpose, Cre- ativity, and Faith. This year ' s Kwan- zaa closed with a Karamu Feast. 3 gag ssBsaasaggcag INDIA STUDENT ASSOCIATION AT TEMPLE iHer- The purpose of the India Student Association at Temple, or ISAT, is to promote fellowship among the Indian community at Temple University through academic, social, cultural, sports, and service- oriented programs and activities. Like other student service organizations, ISAT has run food and clothing drives for the homeless. However, ISAT ' s primary purpose is to help Indian students " find their feet " at Temple, said ISAT member Charley Mathew. This help starts from the moment an Indian student is accepted at Temple. ISAT members pick up these new students from the airport and provide housing for them until they can find their own places to live. ISAT also provides significant help for members who have family emergencies. ISAT also provides aid for emergencies back home in India. Recently, ISAT cooperated with another organization to provide aid for a recent earthquake in India. However, ISAT also aims to open up Indian culture to Temple. ISAT members do this through Cultural Nights, which feature traditional Indian dinners, dancing, and traditional clothes. Currently, ISAT has around 80 active members. 121 TEMPLE LAMBDA ALLIANCE Temple Lambda Alliance is a social and support group for homosexual people, bisexual people, transgendered people, and their friends and families. It has about 70 members. Temple Lambda Alliance has socials every second and fourth Tuesday for whoever wants to come, as well as meetings on Wednesdays. " We don ' t turn anyone away, " said one member. This organization provides support for homosexual people who are " out of the closet " — who are coming out — who consider themselves to be homosexual — who are not sure — who think they might be — and also for their friends. " We get roommates, " said one member, " who say, ' Here ' s my friend. Help him. ' " The Alliance also brings speakers to campus who talk about a variety of issues, said Nicole DeKovacs, a member. Topics and representatives include: — Transgender issues — The Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians — Safe sex — Spouses of bisexual people — Domestic partner violence In addition, Temple Lambda Alliance shows a video on the beginnings of the gay and lesbian movements.

PACT DARE ' s initials stand for Peer Advocacy Counseling Training Drug Alcohol Referral Education, but what they really spell is " free, confidential HELP. " PACT DARE is a group of trained students who are committed to helping fellow students in the areas of education, counseling, and referral for alcohol or other drug-related issues. They offer three arenas for this: — The Drop-In Center. This is a relaxed environment where students can " drop in " for information, initial counseling, and referrals. — The Hotline. This is a phone referral service for those who are lonely, scared, or stressed out. Students may call anonymously to discuss concerns and receive information or referrals. — Workshops. PACT DARE offers workshops for dormitories or other groups on safer party-hosting tips, substance abuse and related sexual and social behaviors, relationships and stress. PACT members tailor the workshops to meet groups ' needs. Additionally, PACT DARE members make reading material available to help students deal with additional stress at holidays such as Chanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. PACT DARE cooperates with other organizations and departments throughout Temple. It is part of Temple University Counseling Services, which is under the Division of Student Affairs. 126 i mi. m % HlB - wm 127 HILLEL Hillel at Temple has 70 active members and a mailing list of more than 400 students. It cooperates with Hillel chapters throughout Philadelphia. Hillel offers students a fascinating blend of old and new Jewish ritual, study, social, and cultural opportunities. To understand Jewish culture, one must realize that it is thousands of years old. So, Hillel members celebrate many events that happened thousands of years ago. Hillel ' s old-plus-new celebrations were especially apparent during Chanukah, the Festival of Lights. Chanukah stems from the rededication of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem after it was defiled by the Syrians, about 70 years A.D. During Chanukah, Hillel offered students these blends of old and new: — A class on cooking " Gourmet Latkes (delicious friend potato pancakes) for the Nineties. " — The Hawaiian Chanukah Happening, a dance beach party food drive. — A wild game of dreidel at the city-wide Chanukah celebration (celebrants could eat the gourmet latkes there, too). — Sharing the Chanukah story with schoolchildren in the neighborhood. Dreidel games sprang from historical events. Hillel ' s Chanukah celebrations and Maccabea Games, which are even older, are based on events that took place thousands of years ago. Hillel at Temple also brings speakers to campus; provides spiritual and personal counseling for students; provides extensive workshops to the residential life staff; and participates in numerous interfaith activities, said Maria Meyers, a Hillel member. Hillel is " the main organization to encourage the Temple community to be sensitive to Jewish student needs, " said Meyers.

These two Newman Centers are part of a nationwide network of Catholic campus centers. Temple ' s Newman Center offers a wide array of services to the Temple community. These include tutoring, olothing, and food drives, Operation Santa Claus, spring voluntary service in Appalachia, religious retreats, Bible studies, Mass during the week and on Sundays, and social events. The Newman Center is headed by the Rev. Robert A. McLaughlin and by Sr. Dorothy Giloley, S.S.J. , is advisor to more than 100 Newman Center members. 129 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY GOSPEL CHOIR The Temple University Gospel Choir (TUGC) performs at community churches as well as at campus ministries, such as Hillel and the Newman Center. To do this, the 40-member choir meets weekly in Kiva Auditorium. On Monday nights, this round-table auditorium comes alive to TUGC ' s Black Gospel harmony, earthy-sweet and raw. During rehearsal, the singers wave back and forth, clapping their hands, while the hands of their director build the jubilant sound of 40 voices praising God. Keyboards and a bass guitar, but no music sheets: nonethe- less, exacting pitch and intricate harmony. Simple but eloquent melodies that start small and build large. After a full day of classes or a hard week, singing Black Gospel is a great way to let off steam. And somehow, the simple words in those songs come to mind when tough times come. " We minister to people through music, " said James Simmons, TUGC secretary. 130 CHI ALPHA Chi Alpha is a national organization with about 200 chapters nationwide. It is similar in focus to other Christian national campus groups such as Inter-Varsity and The Navigators. Chi Alpha ' s Temple chapter is small but mighty. Its 15 members participate in regional retreats and an annual national convention. In Philadephia, Chi Alpha members feed the homeless and participate in weekly prayer meetings, small gatherings in which people study the Bible and pray for one another. They also paticipate in gospel outreaches, at which they share their faith with others. No play makes Jack a dull boy and Jill a du ll girl, however — so, Chi Alpha members also do fun things together, like skiing and social get-togethers. Chi Alpha members combined work and play by bringing a Christian rock group to campus at the beginning of the spring, 1995 semester. The group was from Teen Challenge, a Christian drug and alcohol rehabilitation and retraining program. " We are ready to do almost anything to present the news of Jesus in a living, relevant way to the students, " said Stephen White, a Chi Alpha member. . • PRE-MEDICAL STUDENT HONOR SOCIETY OF PENNSYLVANIA The Pre-Medical Student Honor Society of Pennsylvania is an honorary organization with about 65 members. " We ' re the only pre-medical student society which does not restrict membership on the basis of race, " said Jeff Bobis, President. PMSHS, he said, " caters exclusively to the serious pre-medical student. " ' We provide a service found nowhere else at Temple — a place where like-minded students with high aspirations (entering the medical field as an M.D. or D.O.) can gather to share feelings, get advice, and make friends, " Bobis said. PRE-HEALTH PROFESSIONAL SOCIETY Temple ' s Pre-Health Professional Society, PHPS, provides students in the health care fields with field trips, tours, open houses, speakers, and contacts with deans of admission. All this is for one purpose: helping health-care students get into the right schools so that they may win health-care jobs after college. But PHPS is not just about work. Health-care students, due to their crushing class schedules, have even less time to have fun than do students in other disciplines. To that end, sometimes PHPS brings health- care students together for just plain good times. So, Take A Closer Look at PHPS! PSYCHOLOGY MAJORS ASSOCIATION ■J J — -— ' w . -.— — ,_ ?$f$r r- _ f r « r. v _ v «. . .. Temple ' s Psychology Majors Association functions both as a support and a pre-professional organization. It has 20 members. This organization functions as a support group, encouraging academic achievement and the pursuit of individual career goals, said Barbara DiFilippo, a member. The organization has a banquet once a year to induct new members. " We offer field trips to different sites, for example a hospital or agency that deals witih aspects of the mental health field, " said Barbara DiFilippo, a member. " We also provide information regarding the university resources available to students and attempt to stimulate their interests in the field of psychology. " Our members are dedicated to making the organization more popular and assisting in getting a wider range of activities together so that all aspects of psychology are covered, " DiFilippo said. 133 SOCIETY FOR HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), with 25 active members, is a pre-professional society for students interested in the field of human resource management. Its activities include a semi-annual " Dinner and Lecture Series, " for which SHRM brings in guest lecturers who speak on human resource topics. SHRM also provides internships, professional development workshops, and help with Human Resource Certification preparation. Further, the group keeps members ' resumes on file. SHRM contributes to the Temple community by bringing recognition to Human Resource Department of the School of Business and Management, as well as to SBM itself, through contact with local and national professional chapters of SHRM. " We work closely with other University Human Resource departments and have built a good relationship with them, " said Tom Verghese, SHRM member. In short, SHRM provides excellent networking opportunities for students of Human Resource Administration. PUBLIC PRSSI college relations hi 199 Award a Oevelopi PRSS contest woo.

This group coordinates relations with Delta Sigma Pi chapters at other Philadelphia colleges, such as the University of Pennsylvania, and the Delta Sigma Pi chapter at Temple ' s Ambler campus. Delta Sigma Pi members also bring in guest speakers, participate in fund raisers and community service projects, and have social events " to encourage the association of students for their advancement and professionalism, " said Jennifer Hui, a member. " Very diverse and active students participate. We learn how to compromise to achieve goals, " Hui said. 134 PUBLIC RELATIONS STUDENT SOCIETY OF AMERICA PRSSA, which stands for Public Relations Student Society of America, is a nationwide network of college and university chapters geared to helping students gain experience and know-how in public relations. In 1993, PRSSA at Temple was named Best Overall Chapter and was awarded the University Service Award at PRSSA ' s Mid-Atlantic District Conference. In 1992, it also won the Outstanding Chapter Development Award for its work with such activities as AIDS Awareness Week. PRSSA ' s biggest promotion is perhaps its annual blood drive at Temple. As part of last year ' s promotion, PRSSA and the American Red Cross co-sponsored the Penn State-Temple Lifesaver Cup, a contest to see which university could come up with the most blood for the Red Cross coffers. Temple won. In 1992, PRSSA ran the " Rock the Vote Rally " at Temple. This entailed two voter registration drives to get students up and voting by the 1992 presidential elections. Additionally, PRSSA does public relations work for Temple Actor ' s Guild. PRSSA has also brought in area businessmen and public relations professionals to speak on various public relations matters. It has a mentor program and puts out a newsletter as well. PRSSA at Temple has 21 active members. These include: Danielle Cohn, President; Portia Dinoso, Treasurer; Nicole Hasty, Historian; Denise Krenski, Editor-in-Chief; AN Mclntyre, Secretary; Rochelle Patterson, National Liaison; Joseph Philiposian, Vice President; Jodi Randall, PR Director; Suzanne Baker, Vernice Black, Sheila Colon, Leigh Ann Galarus, Margaret Harrison, Karina Kachurak, Trush Kalup, Brenda Lange, Audrey Lehman, David Mangino, JoAnne Nicosia, Kajsa Watt, Julia Weiss, and Jennifer Welty. 135 KAPPA KAPPA PSI Kappa Kappa Psi members are some of the unsung heroes of Temple ' s Diamond Bands. Without them, the bands ' sterling performance would suffer. Kappa Kappa Psi National Honorary Band Fraternity is an honorary fraternity comprised entirely of band members. All Kappa Kappa Psi members play in Temple ' s bands. At Temple, Kappa Kappa Psi has 19 members: about one-tenth of Temple ' s total band membership, which is more than 130. Kappa Kappa Psi members first swing into action during summer band camp. They help freshman band members move their luggage into the dorms. They also work with the band committee to plan extracurricular events for the week of band camp. This is a help, because freshman band members come to Temple the summer before they actually enter college. So, they must adjust to not only dorm life, but the campus layout, as well as going to college in an inner-city neighborhood — all in addition to practicing during the sultry dog days of summer. It helps to have Kappa Kappa Psi members on hand to welcome them and show them the ropes. Kappa Kappa Psi members also help to take care of the band uniforms. This is important, because wear and tear can weaken a uniform ' s fabric if it is not cleaned regularly. By helping to care for the uniforms, Kappa Kappa Psi members help them to last longer, which saves the band money. Kappa Kappa Psi members also make lunch — homemade hoagies and other fare — for every band member before every home game. In addition, Kappa Kappa Psi members take care of everyday tasks in the band office. All this dedicated service breeds " a feeling of brotherhood like no other organization, " said Danielle Carrozza, a Kappa Kappa Psi member. " We stick together through everything; we are like a family. " KAPPA KAPPA PSI MEMBERS: FRONT ROW: Sharon Markoski, Heidi Dugan, Natalie Cheung, Jamie Rasmussen, Melissa Koshinski.

Although this organization resembles a sorority in many ways, it is not a Greek organization. Pro- spective members are not " rushed, " and they need fear no hazing. However, Sigma Doves do have an orientation process for incoming members. Like sororities, though, Sigma Doves do have philanthropies they support. The Sigma Doves support UNICEF and research on sickle-cell anemia. Additionally, Sigma Dove women take a very active role in serving their community. They tutor students at William Penn Jr. and Sr. High Schools, as well as at a nearby YMCA. They develop one-on-one relationships with neighborhood children and do things with them, like taking them out to museums. In so doing, they provide " guidance, mostly, " said Ogori N. Kalu, Sigma Dove president. Sigma Doves also contribute to the Temple community through programs such as one they worked on for Black History Month this year. Additionally, these women put on parties and step shows. " We are a one-of-a-kind organization that stresses sisterhood and community service, " Kalu said. — Janette Hough 137 SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS Ever wanted to build and race your very own race car? Now ' s your chance, if you join the Temple Society of Automotive Engineers. Every year, 20 SAE members build a new race car, starting from raw materials. They then enter and race the car in local races, which culminate in the International Society of Automotive Engineers ' race, held every year in Michigan. Last year, they finished 19th out of 75 entries in this race. Temple SAE brought its knowledge about cars closer to home when it helped develop an automotive design class. 138 1 I 140 V TEMPLE NEWS Temple News is one of Temple ' s two student newspapers; the other is The Column, produced at Temple ' s Ambler campus. Temple News is published Tuesdays through Fridays, with a circulation of 10,000 per day. It covers day-to-day life at Temple, as it pertains to students. Sometimes the Temple News offices seem empty and barren. But at 10 or 1 1 p.m. on weekdays, when the paper is in the last throes of being put together, the place teems with the activity of creating the next day ' s issue. Less visible at Temple News, but just as marked, is the creation of experience journalists out of college students. Temple News staff, and Temple ' s journalism students — often one and the same — get some of the best training in the country. And as we saw at the first alumni reunion of former Temple News journalists, those who have left the Owl ' s nest have flown far and wide. They have achieved great things. May they, and those leaving the nest this year, keep their dreams and Temple ' s name always bright.

To the best of each year ' s staff ' s ability, each Templar yearbook is a microcosm of each year passed. Producing a yearbook takes far more time and energy than many people realize. The yearbook editor-in-chief oversees the production of seven sections: Academics Administration, Arts, News, Organizations, Seniors, Sports, and Student Life. Each year, the Templar ' s staffers must start from scratch to determine the yearbook ' s theme, what they want covered and how. Then they have to see that their assignments are covered. When Temple alumni leaf through their yearbooks 15 years from now, what ' s inside must be an accurate rendition of the campus year. That ' s hundreds of stories, hundreds of pictures, all with a long-term perspective. While Temple News is a sketch, the Templar must be an oil painting. Further, today ' s yearbooks must cover events far beyond smei- formals and senior pictures. This year ' s Templar covers homeless people . . . living and studying in an inner-city environment . . . . the Vendors ' Pad . . . Senior heroes and heroines.

A ceremony was held on Monday, November 21 in Feinstone Lounge, Sullivan Hall at Berks and Park Malls on the Main Campus. The awards are believed to be the largest given by a college or university for the recognition of excellence in teaching -- a $10,000 cash prize for each recipient. The " Great Teacher Awards " were established in 1988. As President Peter J. Liacouras said, " Temple has many great teachers. In honoring five of them, we reaffirm our belief in and support for teaching as the heart and soul of Temple University. " What exactly makes one a " Great Teacher? " This year ' s awardees represent widely differing fields — dance, adolescent psychology, business management, physics, and educational statistics — and the literally volumes of accolades from co-workers and students accompanying their nominations echo similar themes: a mastery of their subject, a lively, enthusiastic teaching style, and a genuine concern for students, which includes being easily accessible to them. -Sis- v K . $fytcbujX (article and biographical information: courtesy of Temple University News Bureau) Outsts 154 Gret " Teachers- Forster, Hilsendager, Morano, Steinberg, Hamilton (photo by Dias) Us • I mas Wtool we Hance, raf) : ' " es: I ' rich T) eter Faciei, Professor of Physics in Temple ' s College of Arts and Sciences.

He received teaching honors at both the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Wisconsin before coming to Temple in 1988. 155 Honors - ne of the many - special programs offered at Temple University is the Honors Program. The program offers a unique experience for the talented and motivated student. Smaller classes, new teaching methods, seminars, and field trips are just a small part of the program. The office provides personal advising, tutoring, and internship opportunities. However, perhaps the most important thing Honors offers its 498 students is the community of students and faculty. Director Tom Marino described the faculty as being requires a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0? " With the cost of higher education prohibitively high, Temple Honors offers me a top education at a reasonable price, " said freshman Leah Spielberg. But maybe freshman Mark Davis said it best when he said: " I like it and am super glad it exists.

Smyers 157 Computer Services A t Temple, students can take advantage of state-of-the-art computer programs without spending a fortune on computers and software. They can, instead, turn to Temple ' s Computer Services. More than fifteen computer laboratories are located at Temple ' s five campuses. Although some labs are restricted to students of a particular college or university, most are open to all. All Temple students pay a computer fee at the time they pay tuition. Students then have the option to use the computer system to: write reports; create spreadsheets and databases; design charts and presentations; type resumes and cover letters; access government, business, and news databases to conduct on-line library research; develop computer programs; and even communicate with others through information highways like the Internet. Even if students cannot get to a computer on campus, they can still access the Temple multi-user system. Students who have a computer at home equipped with a modem can dial into the Temple University system — and can access programs and databases from the convenience of their own home completely free of charge! The miracles of modern technology — who knows what ' s next? Perhaps in the future, students will not even have to leave home to attend class! SabiluL SpfLobujt 158 1 T. U.

TUCC has established Temple ' s connection to the art, music, and business worlds of central Philadelphia in ways that would not be possible for its Main or Ambler campuses. Nos. 1616 and 1619 Walnut Street, TUCC ' s twin locations, see 8,000 people pass through their doors each week. No. 1616 houses most of the classes, the bookstore, and the offices, while No. 1619 is home to theater and art gallery companies, a Poets and Writers ' series, and art exhibits. No. 1619 is also the home of the Temple University Music Preparatory Division, through which young people from infancy through college age can learn the foundation for a career in music. Most of TUCC students are adults interested in " lifelong learning, " said Phebe Novakovic, TUCC ' s Director of Continuing Education. The Temple University Association of Retired Professionals, with a membership of 600, runs a wide program of classes each semester. Temple ' s alumni affairs office is also located at TUCC. However, many main-campus students who live in town take advantage of TUCC ' s convenient location for graduate and undergraduate night classes. TUCC offers a a E master ' s jj degree in X English, as well as master ' s or doctorate degrees in politic science, history, and journalism. TUCC also offers preparator workshops for graduate and law school examinations. TUCC also offers the Center City community a wid g-j. selection of non-credit courses, ranging from tarot can I reading, to culinary arts, to a fall, 1994 course on professions ; football with the Philadelphia Eagles, which includes a tour cl | the Veterans stadium. " Our students shop in the communit;| and feed the downtown night life, " Novakovic said. Additionally, TUCC offers both credit and non-credit course; I • for the corporate arena. " The Business Agenda " offers one day or evening sessions on such topics as spreadsheets • customer service, and supervision. TUCC ' s Extension Services division further reaches out to business and hospita communities such as Children ' s Hospital of Philadelphia b) offering seminars on location.

This program is a hands-on learning experience for anyone who intends on going into the radio or television news fields: after Temple Update reporters get their stories, they must then videotape and edit them themselves. The newscast was previously run by student volunteers, working with used equipment. In 1988, however, President Liacouras gave Temple Update a grant of $50,000 for upgrades. With that money, Temple Update ' s coordinators were able to buy three television cameras and other equipment. However, as producer and coordinator Richard Beardsley said, " After five years of use, we have a lot of problems with equipment. " Despite whatever problems Temple Update may face, they are still able to produce a great show. Temple Update does get a room and guidance from the Radio- Television-Film department of the School of Communi- cations and Theater, as well as videotape from the Office of Television Services, which airs the program on Channel 55. Students who want to work on the newscast must first volunteer on the set for a semester. They may then take Dr. Elizabeth Leebron ' s course, " News Practicum, " which trains them both through Temple Update and through classroom lectures. They also receive credit for working on the program. The only schools in the Philadelphia area to have a student-run news program like this are Temple University, Drexel University, and LaSalle University. Students use the videotapes of themselves during their newscasts in their applications for employment after graduation. Approximately 75 to 80% of the students who work with Temple Update find jobs in the television or radio news fields. - Saitoh , 167 Temple University he Temple University Rome program offers students of the arts, humanities, architecture, social science and international business a broad spectrum of career opportunities and cultural surroundings. Rome, the capital of Italy and a major European center, is a diverse, artistic city that also offers peaceful and comfortable surroundings. Among the city ' s hustle and bustle, Romans are friendly and welcome tourists and visitors. Rome itself offers a variety of breathtaking historical sites such as churches, museums, and other monuments. The Temple Rome program was established in 1966 and is located at the Villa Caproni, facing the Tiber River, in the very heart of Rome. This location is ideal in that it is very close to many Roman homes, stores, markets, and restaurants. Students can participate for either one semester or a full year. Students who so desire may reside with an Italian family near the campus, which is especially useful for developing both clear Italian speech and contact with a different cultural environment than that of the United States. Students also may live in apartments supplied by the program. Presently, 100 students participate in the Temple Rome program. All Temple Rome classes are taught in English, although students are encouraged to study Italian before participating. As at Temple ' s main campus, students take a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 17, unless approved by an academic counselor. To some extent, Temple Rome ' s course offerings and academic policies are the same as at the main campus. Temple Rome courses change yearly, depending on the faculty members (both European and American) assigned to teach there. Financial aid and scholarships are handled the same way as at the main campus. Acceptance to the program is based on the applicant ' s GPA (minimum: 2.5) as well as on personal attributes such as maturity, a desire to learn, and a healthy self esteem. Temple Rome offers a rich cultural and academic experience. Its arts, humanities, architecture, social sciences, and international business classes combine classical and post-modern Italian history. Its lecture series brings in Italian artists, writers, architects, and film directors. Also, it hosts numerous art exhibits. The program offers plenty of opportunities for students to throw themselves not only into their studies, but the cultural life of Rome itself, to experience part of the diversity of the Temple experience. The program offers field trips to museums, churches and other historical sites in Rome — sights and sounds that most students see only on slides or in textbooks. For Temple students who have a desire to study in a city of art and culture combined with domestic values, friendly people, and delicious food. Rome is the place! photos courtesy Temple public relations 168 Temple University London I he Temple London program of Temple University ' s School of Communication and Theater provides its students with a media-enriched environment. With more than 50 theaters (London has the largest performance district in the world), the British Broadcasting Center, and the British Film Institute, London is the ideal location for Communication and Theater majors to acquire media knowledge. The international experience SCAT students gain in London compares to no other media-based city. The London press alone includes countless newspapers, and many media professionals reside there. The Temple London program allows students to go behind the scenes of various productions in the make and to meet playwrights, actors and theater critics, among others. Guided tours of production facilities and newsrooms are also available to the students. Temple-London faculty come both from Temple ' s main campus and from Great Britain. All specialize in Communications and Theater. However, the Temple London program is not only for SCAT students. The program also offers courses in liberal arts, British politics, and British modern history. Less than 10 of the 30 students enrolled in the Temple London program each semester come from a university other than Temple. The program ' s small size nourishes a personalized environment to fit the students ' needs: they receive individual attention from professors and participate in activities that might be closed to a larger group. Further, the small group size helps students to develop a sense of community and learn to live in a foreign city more easily than if they were part of a larger group. So, Temple London students learn not only about their major, but gain in personal responsibility and growth. Many Temple London students take full advantage of London ' s cultural endowments. Their classes intertwine academics with London ' s cultural and media environment. Temple London chooses its participants on the basis of both academic ability (minimum GPA: 2.5) and maturity, self-confidence and motivation. Tuition is the same as at Temple ' s main campus, as is financial aid; internships and scholarships are also available. Additionally, reserved housing is available for students. Applications for the Temple London study abroad program are available from Robert M. Greenberg, Coordinator of Studies Abroad at SCAT in Annenberg Hall. -LkAa, Faccictr 169 v y s x .N V • X_ mple University Japan he Temple University-Japan campus (TUJ) is located in the western part of Tokyo, in the district of Minami Osawa, which is about 40 minutes from central Tokyo. TUJ also has facilities in downtown Tokyo and in Osaka. Tokyo has much to offer. This city of 27 million-plus inhabitants is home to the National Theater and Kabukiza Theater, which feature traditional kabuki and Noh plays. Home to many a quiet Japanese garden, Tokyo also hosts Western rock bands, ballet troupes, opera companies and orchestras almost every day of the year. TUJ, established in 1982, was the first American branch campus in Japan. Its enrollment is 1700 students: 90% of these are Japanese, and the remaining 10% come from 36 different countries, including the U.S. Many Japanese students attend TUJ to experience the United States ' approach to higher education, which is different from that of Japan ' s, and also to be competitive in today ' s global marketplace. TUJ has three long-term goals: to provide U.S. -style higher education in Japan, with a global perspective; to internationalize Temple ' s curriculum and faculty research; and to establish a bridge of better understanding between the U.S. and Japan. Many TUJ students are enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences; 280 are graduate students. The majority, however, must complete an Intensive English Language Program before enrolling in Arts and Sciences. TUJ students may work towards degrees in: American Studies, Asian Studies, Economics, English, General Studies, History, Political Science, and Religion. All but the foreign language courses are taught in English. TUJ has 95 full-time faculty members, in addition to part-time adjunct faculty. Students may enroll for either one semester or one year, with a per-semester load of 12 to 17 credits. To be eligible, students must have a 2.5 GPA and must have completed the equivalent of at least four college semesters. TUJ ' s tuition is somewhat higher than that of Temple ' s main campus ($8,290 per semester for 12-17 credits and housing), but stipends of up to $5,000 per semester are available, as are scholarships and financial aid. More than 20 student activity clubs, from sports teams to academically-oriented clubs, as well as regular activity programs and special events, are available to TUJ students. Further available to students are TUJ ' s state-of-the-art facilities, which include a library, computer center, recreational facilities, and an audio visual center. Custom-built student housing is a 15-minute walk from TUJ ' s main campus and near Minami Osawa ' s many restaurants, shopping areas, stores, parks, bike paths and playgrounds. TUJ also is located right next to an outlet of Tokyo ' s excellent public transportation system, which gives students easy access to the entire city of Tokyo.

English, taught in : International rvices J ince 1954, Temple University ' s Office of International Services (OIS) has provided a link between Temple and the world. For instance, the OIS staff has created a community that encourages international and cross-cultural learning through educational and social avenues. OIS staffers, through the office ' s Intensive English program, teach English to non-English speaking students and help students with some knowledge of the language refine their skills. OIS also provides social events, including field trips into Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and New York. This past year the program also promoted a potluck Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of the traditional meal, students brought a dish from " home. " More than 2,200 foreign students from over 100 countries take advantage of OIS; the students are primarily from Korea, Japan, China, and India. ■ I he Temple Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is an interpersonal community, inviting any student to join who is interested. The ROTC program is located in Ritter Hall Annex, Fourth floor, Room 410. The ROTC program is an elective of Military Science. As freshmen and sophomores, cadets are under no obligation to the Army and can withdraw at any time. Once cadets begin their junior year, however, they are " contracted, " which means they must sign an agreement with the Army to serve time after graduation. This agreement can be either active duty, reserve duty, or a combination o f the two. For these services, " contracted " cadets receive $100 monthly. While at Temple, cadets receive academic and personal guidance from their cadet commander. ROTC offers four, three, and two-year scholarships of $8,000 per year, or 80% of the tuition costs for any school with a tuition higher than $8,000 per year. ROTC scholarship students also receive a stipend of $850 per semester for books and other expenses. Upon graduation, depending on whether cadets choose active or reserve duty, a multitude of opportunities faces them. The ROTC program can lead to commissions such as Second Lieutenant in either the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard. Presently, 78 Temple students participate in the ROTC program. 30% of these are women. In order to enroll in the ROTC program, an applicant must: be a U.S. citizen; be a full-time student; pass an entry-level physical examination; have no record of civil convictions; and have earned a G.RA. of 2.0 or higher. ROTC ' s enrollment policy allows students to enroll any time up to their junior year. All a student has to do is register for either Military Science 015 or Military Science 031 (with the corresponding lab). Temple ' s ROTC community offers students such benefits as leadership and management skills, scholarships, financial aid between $3,000 and $6,000 for the last two years of the program, and immediate employment upon graduation as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. photo by T.

Every Messiah student is a member in Xingu, the college ' s student organization. It includes 10 council members; its chairwoman is Crystal Hicks. Asked about the unusual name, Hicks said, " We just wanted a name that sounds non- committee-ish. " Messiah ' s cafeteria, open 24 hours a day, is the center of the social scene for Messiah students, who go there to find out what ' s going on within their community. On Thursday nights, the Messiah students, staff, and some other Temple students come together for an hour of Chapel. Messiah college students are enco uraged to volunteer in the surrounding communities. " A lot of our students go to the Salvation Army to work with the kids, for example, " Hicks said. (photo by R. Lego) o ne of Temple University ' s unique aspects is the ELECT program. ELECT ' S Writing Program, through Temple ' s English Language Enrichment Center, provides classes to aid students in their transition from high-school level writing to college level, as well as English for non-English-speaking students. There is also an ELECT math program on campus for those students who need a little extra background in math. More than 1,000 freshmen, with the help of 60 staffers, participate in the ELECT program, which is one of Temple ' s largest. With a success rate of more than 75% since 1969 when the program began, ELECT has prepared thousands of students for success at Temple and beyond. 174 . w T Learning Communities - -V. • ■m? emple ' s Learning Communities, now in their second year, have become a stable educational environment for Temple students. Any freshman or sophomore who has less than 60 credits may join. In the fall, 1994 semester, the Learning Communities boasted more than 400 students in 30 communities. " So far, the feedback from the students is that they are enjoying the experience, " said Jodi H. Levine, Learning Communities Coordinator. According to Levine, the first year ' s research shows that students who participate in the Learning Communities got slightly higher grades, and had fewer withdrawals and incomplete grades, than Temple ' s main student body. Levine also said that she wants to encourage new students to attend Temple for the opportunities the Learning Communities offer. " Our goal is to have Learning Communities become associated with Temple University the way co-op is associated with Drexel, " she said. Besides offering academic benefits, Learning Communities also organize social events. In 1994, these included meals in the private dining room at Johnson- Hardwick ' s new cafeteria and a Halloween party. The Learning Communities program also offers seminars on study skills, time management, and how to use University resources. -Ja utU K H gh T emple University ' s Dance Department provides Temple with not only performances, but a connection to the surrounding community that reflects the cultural diversity Temple stands for. Instances of this diversity include the Dance Department ' s " adoption " of the John Welsh Elementary School, following the examples of many organizations that participate in Philadelphia ' s Adopt-A-School program. Also, in October, Ramaa Ramesh and Dancers brought Asian Indian choreography to the Conwell theater; the department itself offers a Hatha Yoga course. The Dance Department is infused by a commitment to Philadelphia and its people. Dance students, besides working hard on their own performances, teach the steps to children at the John Welsh Elementary School. Dancers put on performances and demonstrations at both the Welsh Elementary School and at William Penn High School. The Dance Department invites young people to come to its performances free of charge and, often, to join in. Further, Parkway School students take dance classes at Temple. In the Fall, 1994 semester, more than 200 students participated in the dance program. Its degree programs include: Bachelor ' s of Fine Arts; Master ' s of Fine Arts; Masters of Education; and Doctorate of Education. DANCE Ja+ tU £. Hcutfi I l.S photos by T.

Technique classes each day were a must. In ad- dition, students learned about movement composition and choreography to enhance their creative talents. When classes ended, dancers ran to rehearsals with barely enough time to catch a bite to eat! Because of all this, Temple ' s dance community is a close- knit group of people who depend upon each other for time, energy, and creative input. And when all the work was done, successful performances were always the result. In the fall, the dance community wel- comed the Temple Tap Troupe, started by sophomores Dana Kukielka and Tabatha Robinson. The troupe was first seen in the fall Student Dance Concert, which also fea- tured C. Kemal Nance ' s African Looks, a duet by sophomores David Konyk and Amy Rochvarg, and the freshman repertory piece. The senior dance concert, entitled Five Ab- surdly Serious Women, closed the very busy fall season. In the spring, the annual Celebration of the Arts Festival was again a huge success, and the spring Student Dance Concert was stunning. — Danielle Nelson Shannon Glasgow performs her first solo at Temple entitled Olicore Allegory photo by D.

Since its inception, various ensembles have evolved, including the Temple Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Brass, Guitar, Percussion, and Vocal en- sembles. These ensembles and Temple ' s own composers enter- tained us in on-campus concerts, community events, faculty func- tions. Our artists have also been featured at the Music Educator ' s National Conference and the Penn- sylvania Music Educators Associ- ation. In addition to creating and per- forming, Temple ' s jazz students participated in the Visiting Artist Series. This series consisted of concerts and master classes that allowed students the opportunity to interact with known jazz artists. The 1994-95 season was marked by outstanding perform- ances by Temple student ensem- bles, the Jazz Faculty recital, and Visiting Artists, " The New York Trombone Conspiracy.

" I learned how to really study a part to make it my own. " Temple opera students are successful all over. Former student Eric Owens will have performed three times at Carnegie Hall in spring, 1995. During the summer of 1995, Michael Krueger will perform with the Santa Fe Opera Company in New Mexico. To find their individual voices, Temple opera students work on more than just vocal technique and development. Training in musical styles, diction and language are also part of the pathway to finding their operatic roles. The opera department readies its students for the stage with the well-attended Temple Opera Theater produc- tions. All senior undergraduate students complete their four years at Temple with a recital, crowning their training at Temple. Temple Professors of Voice and Opera come from Wes- leyan University, City University of New York, Curtis In- stitute of New York. Some are Temple alumni. Phillip Cho, Professor of Voice and Chair of the Department of Vocal Instruction, came to Temple from Seoul University and Julliard School of Music. So, how was the audition? " The faculty make auditions very comfortable, to calm any nervousness we might have, " said Kelly Gebhart. " It ' s a pleasant audition. You don ' t feel like a number. " Benjamin Britten ' s Owen Wingrave opened the Temple University Opera Theater season in the fall, starring Mi- chael Krueger and Holly Graham.

LISKH Some highlights of this year ' s Temple University ' s Greater Philadelphia Concert Series included a November 20 performance by the Temple University Concert Choir and Chamber Orchestra. Di- rected by Alan Harler, Chairman of the De- partment of Choral Activities, the instru- mental and choral departments combined to perform Bach ' s Magnificat in D Major, BWV 243, Marian Music of the Renaissance, and Gregorian chants. A few weeks later, on December 7 in the Great Court of Mitten Hall, Gail Poch and Janet Yamron conducted the Temple Uni- versity Singers and Temple University Cho- rale. The Temple University Symphony Or- chestra, conducted by Luis Biava, graced the stage on February 12. They performed Weber ' s Overture to Oberon and a suite from Bartok ' s The Miraculous Mandarin. The per- formance also featured winners from the An- nual Student Soloist Competition. The Tem- ple University Wind Chamber Symphony, di- rected by Lawrence Wagner, performed on November 17, 1994 and April 20, 1995. Two ensembles included the Brass Ensemble and the Percussion Ensemble. Each performed in November 1994. The Temple University Concert Choir and the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia, con- ducted by Alan Harler, combined to perform in Washington D.C. with the National Sym- phony on March 9 and 10. Together, they performed the Mass for the 500th Anniver- sary of the Death of Joan of Arc. On April 2, the 25th annual Academy Con- cert was performed. Conducted by Alan Har- ler and Luis Biava, the Symphony Orchestra and the Combined Choirs came alive. The performance included the Philadelphia pre- miere of John Corigliano — Symphony No. 1.

' a " AVOV A ' ON Improvement was the key to Ron Dick- erson ' s second year as Head Coach of the Owls. The 1994 season exploded with wins against Akron and Army, with a loss to East Carolina in between. This 2-1 beginning was Temple ' s best starting record in the past seven years of play. Statistically, the Owls held their own in the Big East Confer- ence. Temple ' s passing attack went from last place in 1993 to first place in the Big East in 1994. The defense bettered the num- ber of turnovers produced with 28, which placed them second in the Big East. In ad- dition. Temple was the first team to hold Penn State scoreless in the first quarter and the only Big East team to score two touch- downs versus Miami ' s defense. Sophomore Quarterback Henry Burris led the Big East in total offense, averaging 234.3 yards per game. Burris also set eight school passing records, passed for 2,716 yards, completed 52 percent of his passes, and threw 21 touchdowns. Flanker Van Johnson and Split End Marc Baxter were valuable receivers, each catching more than 30 passes for over 500 yards apiece.

Senior Heather Paslay makes the play for the Owls photo by M Kennedy After posting a 20-15 record at Drexel, Head Coach Ginny Alex- ander decided to try her luck at North Broad. In 1993, Alexander guided the Owls to a 23-13 record en route to earning Atlantic-10 Coach ot the Year honors. With the 1994 team armed to the teeth with talent, could Alexander avoid the sophomore jinx? She and the rest of these Lady Owls answered with a re- sounding " Yes. " A big factor in the team ' s 24-12 record was Senior Outside Hitter Katie Harrigan. After earning A- 10 Player of the Year, Harrigan underwent shoulder surgery in the spring. Obviously, she was fully re- covered for the 1994 season because she led the team in kills, attempts, aces, and digs. Harrigan ' s performance this year made her Temple ' s all-time career leader in digs, as well as being third in kills and attempts. Senior Outside Hitter Heather Paslay also played a big role in Temple ' s suc- cess. In 1993 she was named to the all- A-10 second team. 1994 was a success- ful year for Paslay as well as she ranked third on the team in both attempts and assists. Sophomore Setter Heidi Lombardo ex- perienced immediate success her fresh- man year. Behind her 74 assist perform- ance against West Virginia, Lombardo led the A-10 in assists and earned A-10 Freshman of the Year. This season was equally impressive. Lombardo led the team in assists, was second in aces, and second in digs. After only two seasons with the Owls, she was ranked third on the all-time assist list with 2,525. Soph- omore Outside Hitter Zenzile Johnson was second on the team in kills, second in attempts, fourth in assists, and third in digs. Season highlights include the defeat of crosstown opponents Drexel and Penn. Also, out of Temple ' s 24 wins, the Owls bared their talons to record 17 shutouts! In the 1994 A-10 Tournament, the num- ber-four seeded Owls quickly dispatched Duquesne, 3-0. They fell, however, to the number-one seeded George Washington in a tough four-set conference semi-final. With a host of talented players and an equally talented coach, the Owls look to be a force in the A-10 in the years to come. — Ed Sieger 203 WOMEN ' S FIELD HOCKEY Women ' s Field Hockey broke even this seaso n with a 10-10 record under the helm of second-year Head Coach Lau- ren Fuchs. In Atlantic 10 competition, the Owls were only beaten once in the regular season. They went on to 2-0 in the A- 10 Tournament, clinching the A- 10 Championship title. They de- feated Rutgers and upset Massachusetts, to whom they had lost during the regular season. Senior Attack Heather Tomlin ended her ca- reer at Temple with 10 goals and 23 assists. Leading the ladies in goals for the 1994 season were junior Tara Silvestre and senior Kelly Trex- ler, each scoring 10. Key defensive players were seniors Carly Zerbe and Jodi Randall. Newcomer Deb Brown defended the goal in all twenty games and finished her first season with a .786 save percentage. Season in Review OWLS 1 Maine UConn 4 Kent St. N.

McWilliams guided the Lady Owls to an improved overall record as well as an improved Atlantic-10 record. The team was led by senior Defender Patrice Rutland. Rutland notched 13 goals and nine assists for a total of 35 points. She ended her career at Temple as the career scoring leader with 27 goals and 21 assists. Temple ' s offensive future looks strong. The next two leading scorers are both sophomores. Forward Kim Fitz- gerald registered nine goals and two assists. Rebounding from a season- ending injury in 1993, sophomore For- ward Katie Gallagher came on strong, scoring six goals and one assist. The Owl defense also possessed a strong anchor in Goalkeeper Carla Moy- er. Moyer started 1 1 games ending the season with a 5-5-1 record. She re- corded a team high of 82 saves, in- cluding two shutouts. As a team, the Owls strung together a midseason five game unbeaten streak. Temple registered a 5-2 win over Penn, a 2-1 win over Old Dominion, a 7-1 drub- bing of St. Bonaventure, and a pair of 2-2 ties against Rutgers and Navy. The ladies also shellacked crosstown op- ponent Drexel, 10-0 and scored another shutout against Wagner. Statistically the team improved, al- lowing four fewer goals than in 1993. After scoring only 28 goals in 1993, they tallied 45 in 1994. This leap in offensive potency shot the team ' s total p oints up from 73 in 1993 to 115 in 1994. — Ed Sieger Sophomore Midfielder Forward Barbara Garden- er controls the ball In the 10-0 victory over Drexel. photo by W Welsh 206 V I 24 Season in Review I If fni r ' 9°- 1 FRONT ROW: Tlshara Brickus, Rhonda Sheppleman, Jessica Gorr, Donlelle Zimmerman, Shauna James.

The Owls lost three valuable gradu- ates in 1994, so Temple had to reshape its future with a yo ung team consisting of ten freshmen and sophomores. The team was led in scoring by soph- omore Forward Shawn Vogel. Vogel tal- lied four goals and five assists. Second on the team in scoring was junior Mid- fielder Kevin McNally, scoring four goals and three assists. One of the bright spots this season was sophomore Goalkeeper Ken Clark. A redshirt his freshman year, Clark took over between the posts in 1994, playing in 15 games and earning all three Tem- ple wins. Five games later, Clark cap- tured the school record in saves by turn- ing away 28 shots in a tough overtime loss to Penn State. With the top two scorers returning next season, a young goalkeeper, and the winning tradition of Coach Boles, the Owls look to rebound to their winning ways in 1995. — Ed Sieger Season in Review OWLS OPP Massachusetts 4 1 West Chester 2 G.

The only loss for the team this year was 1993 ' s captain Rich Steinmetz, who graduated. The remaining talent was rather impressive. The leader on and off the course this season was senior captain Hans-Chris- tian Winkler. Winkler owns a 79 average and a season low of 74. He has been a steady performer since joining the team in 1992. Winkler was chosen for the all- Atlantic 10 Conference team in 1992, 1993, and 1994. He was a 1992, 1993, and 1994 all-District 2 selection, as well as being a 1994 Atlantic- 10 Ac- ademic all-Conference selection. Wink- ler ' s accomplishments away from the cherry and white were equally impres- sive. In 1992 he won the Austria Inter- national Amateur Championships. Wink- ler currently ranks among the top 10 amateur players in Austria. The other half of the Owls ' one-two punch is sophomore Ralph Miller. He owns both the team low average at 76 as well as the team low round of 70. Miller ' s presence was immediately felt his freshman year. In the spring of 1994, he had eight top ten finishes and the team low average at a scant 75.5 to earn himself the team MVP award. Like Winkler, Miller shines internationally. In 1993, he won the Dunhill-Telegraph Cup, earning him the right to play at St. An- drew ' s in Scotland. Later, he won first place in the 1993 Volvo Summer Tour, firing a course-record 63. Finally, Miller captured the 1994 Dutch Amateur Tour- nament with an eight under par perform- ance. As a team, Temple came out swinging at the Knights Invitational Classic in Po- mona, N.Y. In a nine school field, the cherry and white finished first with four golfers finishing in the top ten, five in the top 15. The Owls really spread their wings in the 1994 Georgetown Hoya Golf Tour- nament. Temple captured the first place spot in a field of 15 schools Sophomore Josh Lewis piayed his bes, urnament of the season en route to capturing first place honors. Sophomore Ralph Miller came in a close second and freshman Jeff Ollinger took fourth. All told, five Owls finished in the top 20. The team also holed a record 29 birdies.

As a team, the women defeated the University of Pennsylvania and Villanova and shut out St. Joseph ' s and Colum- bia with eight wins in each com- petition. In singles competition, senior Christine Antogiovanni had the best record with 10 wins and just one loss. She won the ECAC Championship at Penn State on October 22, 1994. In doubles com- petition, Antogiovanni teamed up with Carmen Pruessner to take third at the ECAC Championship. Pruessner also had quite an im- pressive season, winning nine of her 1 1 matches in singles com- petition.

Stu- dents in the marching band practice two hours a day, three times a week. In addi- tion, band members practice early on Saturday mornings before home football games. The band performs at each home football game and at some away games every sea- son. At the games, the band performs the traditional Tem- ple pre-game show and a half- time show. The half-time show never has a dull moment with diverse and exciting pro- grams entertaining the crowds. The band also leads the crowds through music and cheers in the stands to sup- port our team. The season for the band begins in early August with band camp. During band camp, band members learn music and drill. By the time the week is over, everyone knows the music and drill for the opening show! During the season the band performed at home football games and also got a chance to travel a little. The band went with our team to West Point for the Army game. They also traveled to a high school ex- hibition and a " Monday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles game.

As in previous years, the dancers performed at each and every men ' s basketball game in McGonigle Hall. But instead of last year ' s basketball uniforms with knee pads and baseball caps, the uniform now consists of a bodysuit with a short skirt. Another change for 1995 was that the enthusiastic dancers were active throughout each game. They performed with the cheerleaders during timeouts and at halftime. Their dance routines brought out the spirit in the games . . . making the games more exciting. — Nakia Howell The Diamond Gems start practicing when the school year begins Practice makes perfect for those who dedicate their time and energy, photos by R.

Shi- pley Fifth-year Head Coach Charlene Curtis brought her international basketball ex- perience to the court as she tried to re- build the 1994-95 Lady Owls. Curtis show- cased her coaching abilities at the national level as assistant coach for the 1991 U.S. Select team, the 1992 floor coach at the Olympic tri- als, and assistant coach for the 1994 U.S. Na- tional team. The 1994 National team captured the bronze at the World Championship and the gold at the Goodwill Games. Her task was to mold a young Temple squad. Unfortunately, near season ' s end, the op- position proved to be too tough. There are, however, possibilities in the team ' s future: four juniors, five sophomores, and one freshman. Midway through the season, freshman Guard Claudrena Harold led the team in scoring, three- point field goals, free throws, and minutes played. Sophomore Forward Center Alka- nease Garrett also made an impact this season. Garrett was second in points per game and led the team in blocks. Sophomore Center She- meme Williams was third in scoring and led the team in rebounds. Sophomore Guard Wendi Goods led the team in assists and was tied for the lead in steals. Co-captains for the 1994-95 squad were senior Renee Jones and junior Mickey Wetzel. Leaders on and off the court, it was Jones and Wetzel who were responsible for keeping up team morale in the rough 1994-95 season. — Ed Sieger 225 just DID It! Underrated Owls make it to the NCAA Tournament . . . AGAIN! Winning is more than just an at- titude for Head Coach John Chaney. It ' s a way of life. In twelve seasons at Temple, Chaney has amassed a 276-105 record. His Temple teams have appeared in ten NCAA tour- naments, eleven post-season appear- ances in all. Chaney ' s task this year was to build another winning team after losing first-round NBA draft picks Eddie Jones and Aaron McKie. Sure enough, near season ' s end, the Owls were up to their winning ways. Senior Guard Rick Brunson was the undisputed Floor general for the 14-7, 7-5 A- 10 Owls. Starting every game, the All-American candidate led the team in scoring, assists, steals, minutes played, and rebounds. In a stellar per- formance against George Washington, Brunson made nine three-pointers and scored a total of 36 points. Backing Brunson was a host of younger players helping to build the Owls ' future. One such player was Jun- ior Guard Levan Alston. Alston was sec- ond on the team in scoring, assists, and steals, and third in minutes played. A promising addition to the squad was Freshman Guard Johnny Miller. Miller ranked second in scoring and third in assists. Starting every game, Temple had consistent performances from two of their big men, Junior Forward Jason Ivey and Freshman Forward Lynard Ste- wart. Ivey was second in both blocks and rebounds. Stewart came on strong ranking third in rebounds, blocks, and steals. Other highlights of the Owls ' season included a nationally televised victory in front of a capacity crowd against Uni- versity of Louisville. They also collected victories over cross-town rivals St. Joe ' s, La Salle, and UPenn. In the last home game, Temple upset UMass, 72- 63. In the Atlantic 10 Tournament, the Owls defeated West Virginia and Rut- gers before falling to UMass in the fi- nals.

He has taken four teams and seven all-around competitors to the Northeast Regional tournament. Anderson has also amassed a record of 134-84. This season, the team had a bal- anced mix of talent. After losing only two seniors from last year ' s squad, the 1995 team was comprised of five sen- iors, one junior, four sophomores, and two freshmen. Part of the team ' s 12-3 success at midseason was due to soph- omore Adrienne Carver and seniors Meggan Watts and Jill Zimmerman. Carver tied the school record on the beam as a freshman with a 9.70. She also held the team high in the all-around and the vault. Midseason 1995, she lead the vault (9.550), beam (9.550), and all- around (37.650). Zimmerman was coming off back-to- back all-conference performances in 1993 and 1994. In 1993, she set the school record for the floor exercise with a 9.800. This season, she owned the team high on the uneven bars with a score of 9.550 and was second in the FRONT ROW: Jennifer Guttfeld. Stacy Hallowed, Meala Berman. Addie Col- lins.

Shipley 233 M ymnasfic V31ANT5 Head Coach Fred Turoff has experienced much suc- cess in his 18-year tenure at Temple University. In those 18 years, he has recorded a 166-69 career record. His Owls have won the Eastern Intercollegiate Gymnastic League (EIGL) title for the past five years, eight years in total. At the beginning of the season Turoff felt that qualifying for the NCAA Championships was a reasonable goal. It looks as though he may not be too far off the mark. Near season ' s end, the men ' s team was running rough- shod over the competition, posting a 13-0 (3-0 EIGL) rec- ord. Losing only one senior from last season ' s squad, they looked to capture a sixth straight title with a cast of talented athletes. One such athlete was senior Dave Frank. In 1994, Frank captured first place on the parallel bars and tied for first on the horizontal bar at the EIGL Championships. He also took first on rings at the NCAA East Regionals and Cham- pionship preliminaries before finishing seventh at the NCAA Championship Finals. In January 1995, Frank qualified for the United States Senior National Team 2000 at the Win- ter Cup in Colorado Springs, Colorado. At midseason 1995, he held the team high on rings (9.9), parallel bars (9.750), and horizontal bar (9.6). Frank also tied for first on the floor exercise with a score of 9.750. Junior Danny Akerman was also an integral part of the 1995 squad. In 1994, Akerman tied for first on the pommel horse and tied for third in the all-around competition at the EIGL Championships. At midseason, he held the team high in all-around with a score of 57.100. Temple also had two promising underclassmen con- tributing to the team this year. As a freshman, sophomore Kenny Sykes tied for first place on the horizontal bars at the EIGL Championships. In 1995, Sykes held the high score on the horse (9.800) and was second on the floor exercise (9.700) mid-way through the season. Freshman Darin Gerlach, coming off a second place finish in the all-around at the 1994 PA Class One Com- petition, made an immediate impact at Temple. Gerlach held the team high at midseason on the vault with a score of 9.450 and was tied for high score on the floor exercise.

Space, therefore, should not have been an issue. In addition, the coaches felt that they spent the least amount of money as compared to other athletic teams. For ex- ample, the baseball team spent only $300 in equip- ment reconditioning in the 1994 season.

Simpson always lived life on camera, first as a football star, then as a sportscaster, commercial pitchman and actor. But nothing could have prepared him, or his fans, for the role he would play in 1994. The first reports were surprising enough. Simpson was suspected in the brutal slashing murder of his ex-wife Nicole and her friend, Ronald Goldman. But it was his arrest that proved unforgettable. Instead of turning himself in as promised, Simpson had a friend drive him on a rambling jaunt along southern California ' s freeways. The police followed behind at a discreet distance, heeding a warning from Simpson ' s driver that Simpson had a gun. As a national television audience watched — virtually, all network programming was preempted — Simpson ' s white Bronco moved hypnotically along the fabled freeways. Police cars followed in formation, and crowds formed along overpasses. Finally the Bronco returned to Simpson ' s west Los Angeles house, where he surrendered after nightfall. So began what many have called the most famous murder case in American history. . % NOTE: All photographs and stories in the News section, except where otherwise marked, are courtesy of the Associated Press. V- Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: 1929-1994. Kennedy, publishing editor, connoisseur of art, Francophile, mother, widow of John F. Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis, and member by marriage of a most famous family, died of cancer in New York City, where she had been living for some years. Most of the pictures appearing in the press after Kennedy ' s death harked back to her sojourn as First Lady, when she was a model of fashion and elegance for the American people. As a child she experienced an unstable home life in the midst of plenty; as Jack Kennedy ' s wife, and then Aristotle Onassis ' , she had to put on a good front and plan her own life while struggling in the public eye through two unstable marriages. However, in later years, she seemed to find peace with herself through doing what she loved best — editing art and antique books, mothering and grandmothering — and enjoying the company of a kindred spirit, Maurice Tempelsman. — Jean M.

Nixon was born in Yorba Linda, California. A graduate of Whittier College in California, Nixon graduated third in his class from Duke University Law School in North Carolina in 1937. In 1942, after five years as a lawyer, he entered World War II as a Navy officer. In 1946, after his discharge, Nixon ran for Congress as a Republican, winning on his first bid. During the McCarthy Era, a time of virulent anti-Communist feeling, Nixon became known for his investigation of Alger Hiss, a high-ranking State Department official later jailed for perjury. This led to Nixon ' s nomination as Dwight D. Eisenhower ' s running mate in the 1952 Presidential elections. During this campaign, however, Nixon came under fire for accepting illegal contributions from California businessmen, which he rebutted in his famous " Checkers Speech. " (Checkers was a cocker spaniel given to the Nixons as a campaign contribution.) In 1960, Nixon ran for the Presidency, but lost to John F. Kennedy. However, he ran again in 1968 and won. During his presidency, Nixon achieved some major foreign policy breakthroughs. He successfully negotiated an arms reduction treaty and preliminary nuclear arms limitation agreements with the U.S.S.R., and approved plans for a joint U.S. -Soviet space mission to take place in 1975. He re-opened the door for Westerners to mainland China. He partly succeeded in easing Arab-Israeli tensions. He pulled all U.S. troops out of Vietnam. But in 1974, the Watergate scandal put an end to Nixon ' s presidency. A Senate investigation revealed that during the 1972 race, Nixon had engineered a burglary of the Democratic National Headquarters at the Watergate apartment complex and had also accepted illegal campaign funds. Further, Nixon had instituted a massive cover-up of the whole thing. Nixon resigned in August, 1974. However, in the 20 years before his death in 1994, Nixon gradually returned to the political forefront as a foreign-policy maven, unofficially advising Presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton. — Jean M. Hunsberger 303 Andre Agassi was one of the best known entrants in the 1994 U.S. Open, but a year of mostly indifferent tennis had left him unseeded and unheralded. So everyone was amazed when he won the tournament — including Agassi. " I ' m still in a state of shock, " he told the crowd at the U.S. Tennis Center in New York after receiving a check for $550,000 and the champion ' s silver trophy. " It ' s quite amazing what I pulled off. " He did it with relative ease, racing through six other opponents — four of them seeded — before a straight set victory in the final over No. 4 seeded Michael Stich of Germany. The champ shared the spotlight with his girlfriend, actress Brooke Shields, who snapped photos as Agassi — his long hair drawn back into a pony tail, his ears festooned with gold rings — held up the trophy for all to see. 304 Could the world ' s greatest basketball player make it on the diamond? That was the question in 1994 when Michael Jordan, in his first year of retirement from the Chicago Bulls, signed a contract to play minor league baseball for the Chicago White Sox. By the time the season ended, it was clear that the 31 -year-old rookie outfielder still had a long way to go before he ' d be ready for the big leagues. Jordan was hitless in his last four at-bats, striking out twice to finish the season with a .202 batting average for the Double-A Birmingham Barons. Why had he taken up something so hard so late in life? When he signed on in February, Jordan said that he wanted a new challenge and that his father, who was killed in 1993, had always wanted him to play baseball. Reporters who waited to talk to Jordan after his last game were disappointed. While the other Barons boarded the team bus — the one Jordan had bought them — he himself slipped out another door and drove away in his Mercedes. However, Jordan returned to basketball — via the Chicago Bulls — early in 1995, wearing the number 45. 305 A deaf woman from Alabama became the first contestant with a disability to win the Miss America Pageant. The 68th Miss America was 21 -year-old Heather Whitestone. After receiving the crown, she signed " I love you " to the thunderously applauding audience at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Her slogan in the competition was " Youth Motivation: Anything is Possible. " She was proof enough of that, having lost most of her hearing after a reaction to illness when she was 18 months old. Whitestone became Miss America 1995 in part because of her talent routine, a two- and-a-half minute ballet performed to music that she could not hear. Instead, she counted the beats in her head and synchronized her dancing to reflect changes in pitch. Whitestone said that she did not think it would be hard for a deaf woman to be Miss America. " I think I ' ll do it just fine, " said the Birmingham native, who reads lips but used an interpreter at the news conference after her victory. " I mean, look at us, we ' re doing just fine. " I 306 It was a match made in tabloid heaven: The child of one of the two biggest stars in rock history married the other biggest star in rock history. Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis ' s only child, wed the reclusive Michael Jackson. After weeks of dodging photographers outside Jackson ' s Trump Tower apartment in New York City, the couple made a very public coming out: They opened the MTV Music Video Awards ceremony, broadcast live from the Radio City Music Hall. After an announcer intoned, " Please welcome Mr. and Mrs. Michael Jackson, " the newlyweds strolled out onto stage. The couple held hands during their brief appearance and exchanged a long kiss as the audience cheered wildly. " I ' m very happy to be here, " Jackson said. " And just think, nobody thought this would last. " 307 It rained. Thousands crashed the gates. People with tickets couldn ' t get in or had to wait for hours. Portable toilets overflowed. Food occasionally ran short. Drugs were everywhere. Woodstock ' 94 looked a lot like the original 1969 rock festival — right down to the fans, who wouldn ' t have missed it for the world. Promoters set up distant parking lots and shuttle buses for the 200,000 persons who paid $135 each for tickets — advance sale only. But about 350,000 persons showed up. Many ticket holders couldn ' t find a parking space, and some walked up to 12 miles to get to the concert. A few gave up and went home. On stage, Bob Dylan, who did not play in 1969, sang " Just Like a Woman. " Joe Cocker wailed " With a Little Help from My Friends, " just as he did 25 years ago. Melissa Ethridge impersonated Janis Joplin, a late veteran of Woodstock I, in " Piece of My Heart. " When it was over, the rain- drenched and mud-covered lumbered home from the sloppy fairgrounds looking like the walking dead — who died smiling. 308 , If rock ' n ' roll is here to stay, 1994 made it clear that Aerosmith is too. This band of bad boys from Boston proved that heavy metal need not rust, taking three awards at the 1 1th annual MTV Music Video Awards ceremony at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Aerosmith, rock icons for three decades, collected three prizes for their " Cryin ' " video — best group video, video of the year, and viewers ' choice award. In interviews, the band ' s members have admitted to having mellowed since their wild days and nights on the road in the 1970s and 1980s. But Steven Tyler, the band ' s exotic-looking lead singer, showed a bit of the old spirit at the MTV ceremony: he exchanged raunchy jokes with — who else? — Madonna. 309 The nation ' s 108th Supreme Court justice couldn ' t wait to get to work. So, Stephen G. Breyer was sworn in at a private ceremony on August 3, nine days before a public ceremony in the East Room of the White House. Breyer, who said he wanted to begin hiring law clerks and attending to his paperwork, was sworn in first at the Vermont summer home of Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. Breyer replaced Justice Harry A. Blackmun, whose retirement took effect when Breyer took the oaths required by the Constitution and the federal Judiciary Act of 1789. The new justice, a 55-year-old federal appeals court judge from Massachusetts, was easily confirmed by the Senate. Senators from both parties praised his qualifications and his integrity, and they described him as a problem-solver who approaches issues with an open mind. t 310 I A jet-propelled astronaut unhooked his lifelines to the Space Shuttle Discovery and flew free, 150 miles above Earth. It was the first untethered spacewalk in 10 years. Mark Lee, shown in the photograph, was followed by fellow astronaut Carl Meade. They had but one jet pack between them — it cost $7 million, after all — and had to take turns. " This thing works like a champ, " Lee said as he hovered over Discovery ' s cargo bay, firing the pack ' s 24 tiny nitrogen gas jets for propulsion and steering with a joystick. In the trickiest exercise of the seven-hour spacewalk, each astronaut propelled himself along the length of the shuttle arm, which was bent at an angle. Then they scooted from the shoulder to the elbow, around the band, up to the end, and then back down again — all without using their hands. The jet pack was designed to be a life preserver for space station crews of the future. It was just 83 pounds on Earth, but — like everything else — nothing in space. Before Lee and Meade, only six astronauts had walked in space without a lifeline to the mother ship. 311 The World Cup title match between Brazil and Italy was held this year for the first time in the United States — in Pasadena, Calif. Brazil ' s offense got all the attention beforehand, but its defense wound up stopping Italy to win the World Cup, soccer ' s ultimate prize. Diving to his left, Brazilian goalkeeper Claudio Taffarel knocked out Daniele Massaro ' s shot in the penalty kick tie breaker to set the stage for Brazil ' s victory. " Penalty kicks are a lottery, " said the goalie. " It doesn ' t show which team is better. You guess right, and it looks easy. " Taffarel was merely the anchor of a defense that held Italy scoreless for 90 minutes of regulation play and 30 minutes of overtime. Ultimately it was team defense that gave Brazil its fourth world title. Taffarel himself was not the hero; he said: " All 11 players are. " Brazil ' s unsung back line, hobbled by injuries, came through when Italy ' s offensive stars Romario and Bebeto could not put the ball in the net. " Defense won this game, " Aldair, one of the new heroes, said after the match. " Maybe this will earn Brazilian defenders some recognition. " It already had. feu ;■ ' aid « n 1 1 ■ The 1994 baseball season ended not with a home run or a strikeout, but with a conference call and a fax. On the 34th day of a strike by players throughout the major leagues, the team owners canceled the rest of the season, including the playoffs and the World Series. " This is a sad day, " said acting commissioner Bud Selig in a fax distributed to the news media. He got no argument. Not from Tony Gwynn of the San Diego Padres, who lost his chance to bat .400. Not from Matt Williams of the San Francisco Giants, who lost his shot at Roger Maris ' s home run record. Not from superstars Barry Bonds and Ken Griffey, Jr., who lost more salary in one day than most Americans earn in a year. And certainly not from fans, who suffered through a fall without a World Series for the first time since 1904. The season foundered on the owners ' insistence on capping player salaries. The players refused to go along with this, went on strike, and in a little more than a month the season was history. 313 July was a rainy month in Georgia, where two weeks of record flooding killed 31 persons, destroyed hundreds of bridges and roads, and even uprooted caskets from cemeteries. Tropical storm Albert dumped nearly two feet of rain on Georgia, flooding the Flint and Ocmulgee Rivers in the central and southwestern sections of the state. About 35,000 persons fled their homes, and more than 400,000 acres of crops were inundated after flooding began on July 5. Officials reported hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage; 46 counties were declared national disaster areas; and Macon ' s 155,000 residents were without safe tap water for several weeks. Finally the floods abated, but the hardships continued; a state agricultural official said it would be years before farmers recovered. The floods had washed away topsoil, washed out farm pond dams, and damaged nearly 1,000 barns and other farm buildings. Tens of thousands of firefighters fought a summer-long battle against scores of fires that burned more than three milion acres of woodlands across the parched Western states. So many young people were fighting fires in Idaho by late August that state colleges allowed preregistered students to return to classes as much as three weeks late. Residents of mountain homes near Boise were routed by a single fire that consumed 27,000 acres. Flames scorched a range of well-known locations, including the Jackson Hole ski valley and western Wyoming ' s Grand Teton National Park. The firefighters ranged from seasoned pros to raw recruits. In California ' s Sierra Nevada, exhausted, disheveled men and women declared victory on August 24 over the 46,800-acre Cottonwood fire that had burned for eight days. One Forest Service firefighter looked at a bedraggled gathering of singed, soot-covered firefighters as they took a break near Loyalton. The scene, he said, looked like " a hippie wedding gone bad. " PPP 315 Flanked by the relatives of crime victims, President Clinton signed a $30 million crime law, but warned his audience at an elaborate White House ceremony that the bill would not stop the violence plaguing the United States. " Our country will not be safe again until all Americans take personal responsibility for themselves, their families and their communities, " Clinton told about 2,000 persons on the South Lawn. " Even this great law cannot do the job alone. " The law banned many assault firearms, allowed the death penalty for dozens more federal crimes than previously, and provided billions of dollars over a six-year period to build prisons and hire police. Clinton handed pens he used to sign the law to two men who had lobbied hard for its passage through Congress: Stephen Sposato, whose wife was killed by a gunman who invaded the offices of the San Francisco law firm where she worked, and Marc Klaas, whose daughter Polly was kidnapped and killed. " ■:■ J i • ' ' mi UlLLi t fl If the United States truly had a health care crisis in 1994, you couldn ' t have proved it by Congress. Despite the exhortations of President Clinton and the First Lady, the year ended without significant health insurance reform. In 1993 the president appointed his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to head a health care task force. After extensive hearings and much research, the group produced a proposal that became famous — or infamous — for its complexity. Meanwhile, sentiment for change seemed to be limited to the minority of Americans who lacked health insurance or feared losing it. In the absence of a public outcry, Congress lent insufficient support to the Clinton bill, which called for universal coverage. But the president had promised to veto anything less. Hillary Cinton took some of the blame for the failure. She said she had underestimated the effectiveness of the opposition and didn ' t realize that the complexity of the administration ' s plan would turn people off. 317 Nelson Mandela, a Black political leader and formerly a political exile of South Africa, is now its president, chosen by Blacks and Coloreds who were allowed to vote for the first time in South Africa ' s history. As such, he ends several centuries of White rule. It seems almost a miracle, South Africa allowing a Black to be president. James Michener, in his novel " The Covenant, " wrote that White Afrikaners had made a covenant with God that, if He would protect them, they would follow His ways — and also separate themselves from Blacks. The South African word " apartheid " means Separateness. Nevertheless, South Africa has chosen Mandela. This is a great day for South Africa. At last the country will be ruled by a member of the Majority, not the Minority. In Mandela, it will have someone tough and smart — someone who can meet the tough challenges facing South Africa. For Mandela faces some stark problems: What to do about the Homelands, those bleak outposts to which Blacks are now banished? What to do about the centuries-old racial hatred, that is only strengthened by religious beliefs? How to bring Black and Colored South Africans up to par academically and economically with Afrikaners? Because Mandela is a symbol, just as Corazon Aquino was a symbol several years back to Filipinos fed up with the Marcos, he is in a prime position to effect positive change. But a political symbol does not always make a good president, just as many great generals in the United States have not been good presidents. However, Mandela wanted the job; with his vast experience of South African politics, and his unique position as representative of all Blacks in South Africa, he deserves it. — Jean M. Hunsberger 318 The civil war in Rwanda began with a plane crash that killed the country ' s president. Before the year was over, another 500,000 Rwandans had been killed and another 2 million had fled the African nation for the relative safety of squalid refugee camps in Zaire and in other neighboring countries. President Juvenal Habyarimana died in a mysterious plane crash on April 6, igniting long-simmering tensions between the Hutu tribe, which comprises 90 percent of the population, and the Tutsi tribe, which accounts for 10 percent. A rebel group comprised mostly of Tutsis had been trying to unseat the president, who was Hutu. His tribe blamed the Tutsis for his death, and Hutu extremists began a series of mass killings that a United Nations panel later characterized as genocide — " concerted, planned, systematic and methodical. " The violence was awful, but it was nothing new. The Hutus had slaughtered thusands of Tutsis in uprising in 1959 and the early 1960s. 319 Two men who had regarded each other with suspicion during the past six decades shook hands on the South Lawn of the White House, and once again peace in the Middle East seemed more than a dream. A year after he shook the hand of Palestine Liberation Organization chairman Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin did the same with King Hussein of Jordan. The two nations had been enemies since the creation of Israel in 1948 following a brief, bitter war between Jews and Arabs. The war drove thousands of Arab Palestinians into Jordan, creating a class of refugees and exacerbating already deep hatreds on both sides of the River Jordan. " Out of all the days of my life, " Hussein said at the White House peace ceremony, " I don ' t believe there is one such as this. " President Clinton, who played host as Rabin and Hussein signed an agreement, shared their optimism. The old enemies, he said, " give their people a new currency of hope and the chance to prosper in a region of peace. " They headed north on almost anything that would float, including rafts made of the flimsiest materials: oil drums, inner tubes, wooden planks. They were Cuba ' s refugees — tens of thousands of persons desperate to come to the United States to escape the poverty and hunger of their increasingly isolated island Communist nation. Many did not make it because of storms, sinkings or the U.S. Coast Guard, which intercepted more than 1,000 of the crafts in one day in early September. But the flood of migrants receded shortly thereafter. Reversing a decades-long policy of not granting Cubans asylum, the United States agreed to admit at least 20,000 a year. In return, Cuban leader Fidel Castro promised to halt the flight of refugees. Police gave rafters a few days to get their crafts off Havana ' s beaches and made sure no new ones embarked. 321 Civil war continued to rack Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1994, despite the efforts of a United Nations peacekeeping force. The conflict, as complicated as it was savage, began in 1992 when Bosnia ' s Serbian minority rebelled against a decision by Muslims and Croats to secede from what was then Yugoslavia. After two and a half years of fighting, more than 200,000 persons were either dead or missing. This war has been notorious for " ethnic cleansing " — the successful Serbian campaign to drive Muslims from northern and eastern Bosnia. Of approximately 2 million persons uprooted by the war, 750,000 were non-Serbs from those areas. Bosnian Serbs had to contend with NATO air strikes. Also, United Nations sanctions and diplomacy appeared to put some distance between the Bosnian Serbs, who rejected an international peace plan, and their allies in Serbian Yugoslavia. In October, in recognition of increased cooperation from Belgrade, the U.N. lifted some of the sanctions imposed on the region. But U.S. Defense Secretary William Perry asserted that the Bosnian Serbs were still getting war supplies from their fellows across the border. 1 322 The United States went to the brink of invading Haiti, its poor, unsettled neighbor to the south. But at the last minute Haiti ' s military rulers bowed to the United Nations and promised to cede power to the duly elected president whom they had ousted, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Their decision was greeted with great relief by the Clinton administration, which was worried about meager public support for an invasion and, especially, for the casualties the invasion might have required. With troop planes in the air and flying toward Haiti, three special U.S. envoys — former President Jimmy Carter, retired General Colin Powell, and Senator Sam Nunn — struck an eleventh hour deal with Haiti ' s military leader, Gen. Raoul Cedras, and his colleagues. About 21,000 U.S. troops eventually landed on the island. They were followed by an international force charged with keeping the peace until Aristide, who had been in exile in the U.S., could consolidate control. Each day, Russia throws more troops and firepower at the rebelling province of Chechnya, to no avail. After sending in tens of thousands of troops, victory still eludes the Russians. Chechnya ' s rebels have stung the Kremlin with bitter truths: Big is not always better; the desire for independence is a powerful weapon; and Moscow ' s military machine can be made to bleed. Outmanned and outgunned, the Chechens ' fierce resistance has stunned and humiliated the Russian army and made fools of generals desperate for victory. The furious Russian attempt to destroy Grozny and topple Chechen President Dzhokhar Dudayev has unified Chechnya, a nation of more than 160 clans usually feuding among themselves. i ! m 324 " . r iO tire layev The United States went to the brink of invading Haiti, its poor, unsettled neighbor to the south.

The country had been rattled by a series of strong earthquakes since late December when this latest quake, magnitude 7.5 on the Richter scale, jolted northern Japan. The city of Kobe, the site of the worst destruction, is a gateway for more than 12 percent of Japan ' s exports. 326 p : • _ i A string of Pacific storms led to the deaths of at least 1 1 persons and caused more than $300 million in flood damage across the state of California in January, 1995. The storms battered much of the state, from the wine country north of San Francisco to the beaches of Malibu in the south, leaving downed power lines, leaking gas lines and hundreds of bodies of dead livestock. In Humboldt County, authorities called in the National Guard to help them collect the rotting carcasses of sheep and dairy cattle that floated down the Eel River. However, Gov. Pete Wilson said in his State of the State address, " We ' ve conquered every challenge that man or Mother Nature could throw our way. " ! Newt Gingrich wanted to be speaker of the House years before he managed to win a House seat, and he long ago laid plans for the Republican takeover most of his colleagues considered an impossible dream. This is the Georgia congressman ' s season of triumph. He is celebrating in typical contradictory fashion — high-minded one moment, flamboyant the next. He has said himself that he needs to tone down his style, but he hasn ' t yet taken his own advice. Gingrich, 51, was an assistant history professor at West Georgia College in rural Carrolton, GA, when he started running for Congress. He made it on his third try, in 1978, presenting himself as a moderate with strong family values. The San Francisco 49 ' ers scored early and often on January 29 to defeat the San Diego Chargers 49-26 in a Super Bowl that quickly turned into the rout the experts had predicted. For 49 ' ers Quarterback Steve Young, the victory not only put his name in the record book but allowed him to escape the ghost of his predecessor, Super Bowl hero Joe Montana. Young, unanimously named the game ' s most valuable player, passed for 325 yards without an interception and ran for 49. His six touchdown passes broke the Super Bowl record of five that Montana set five years ago. " Whatever critics he may have had, he proved tonight that he ' s one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, " 49 ' ers coach George Seifert said of Young. f z-me-i- Spring Garden resident Pe tJ. g mmn, associate Aistozg piojfessoi at 7empte University, diet in Ais steep i n CamAzidge, England, Su nday,Ja naatg 75. tie wa4 57.

The remaining 48 pages are in the supplement, which comes ouHn September in order to cover the spring sports, Spring Fling, commencement, and other events that otherwise would have to be omitted from the yearbook ' s pages. An 80 lb. paper was used for printing. The prominent typeface for the book is Helvetica 1 2pt. Production Layouts were created both manually and On computer. For the computer-generated layoute ' and for some of the artwofk, the staff used QuarkXPress 3.3, Adobe Photoshop 2.5.1, HP Deskscan 2.0, and Microsoft Word on a Macintosh System 7.1 .

Rober uias, staff photographer for Temple Times, took some of the administrators ' portraits. fherne Several factors went into choosing this year ' s theme, " The Temple Community: Take a Closer Look. " The " Take a. Closer Look " was borrowed from a prospective theme of the 1994 Templar. This was merged with the Temple Community theme because Temple University, in fact, consists of several different campus communities. Many students, faculty, administration and staffers do their best — under tremendous pressure, for inadequate wages, and with minimal staff — to keep Temple University going. These often-unsung heroes and heroines deserve to be recognized in Templar. Further, Templar ' s staff wanted to ' Take a closer look " at some of the little-known sports at Temple. ■fit Cditon.- in- Chitl ' ol ' the, 1995 ' lesnplaA, 9 tit belone the ttAminal, bnain-dead, doonina yet an ft deadline. 9 ' m tooppoted to thank people and taM, tometAina uxite, and 9 don t exxen knoux uihat tc M r WeM, thatt wJiat happent uxJven yooo ' nt, ' lesriplaAt L liton,-in-Chiel. you, tit alone niahtt, ojonxkina ft tail oU to that you, u on t panic at dexxxdline, and kilt yooon, stall.
