Finally, the beauty and majesty of the campus can fully be appreciated. Royce Hall and Powell Library revealed their Romanesque architecture to the public. The new Ackerman also underwent a transformation, becoming a more modern facility. Although Kerckhoff remained masked behind construction boards, its coffeehouse renovations were completed this year. FEATURE POWELL LIBRARY By Matthew Heyn On September 24, before hundreds of students and alumni, Chancellor Charles Young rededicated Powell Library, ending four long years of renovations totaling $35.5 million. Powell Library (named after Lawrence Powell, UCLA ' s most notable librarian) closed in 1992, badly in need of renovations and seismic refitting. The original seismic project had been completed only three days before the Northridge earthquake, which severely damaged the ceiling of the main reading room, and weakened the walls. U.C. officials were faced with two choices: building a new ceiling, losing the 67 year old crowning glory of Powell, or going through the expensive process of restoring all 1 1,872 square feet of it, piece by piece. UCLA, under pressure from preservation societies, finally opted to restore the ceiling, spending $6 million dollars in the process. Over 2,000 pieces were carefully taken down, documented, and restored to their original beauty. Meticulous care was given toward historical preservation, earning UCLA the state ' s only preservation honor, the Governor ' s Historic Preservation Award. In addition, the renovation provided new book storage space, reading rooms, an outdoor garden, and a sturdy construction frame to ensure against future California tremors. In A Passion for Books Lawrence Powell once said, " To enter a library, no matter its kind or size, is to enter the heart of the whirlwind. " He obviously knew just how busy his namesake would be. Day after day, Powell ' s reading room the second largest reading room in the nation was constantly filled. During finals, many students had trouble getting seats. The 92 workstations in the computer lab were even more popular. According to library science graduate student, Paula Zeszotarski, " I ' ve seen more people here than in Towell. The computers have been incredibly busy. " She says that while check-out has n ot significantly increased, the terminals have been busy because they have Netscape, Bruin On-line and URSA On-line. Besides the appeal of Powell ' s resources, students are also drawn to its elegant exterior. The decorative, Romanesque architecture of the building made the short waits for workstations and reading room seats insignificant, especially when compared to the unsuitable atmosphere in Towell. Bruins had to endure its inconvenient presence for nearly four years. Steve Wallace, a third year microbiology major said, " [Powell Library] is a good, quiet place to study. It ' s comfortable, it ' s modern, and it ' s a lot nicer place to study than Towell was. Towell was noisy, and it felt like I was studying in a tin can. It was more like a high school library than a college library. " Opening the library has also changed the atmosphere of Royce Quad (the quad formed by Haines, Powell, Royce and Kinsey). In addition to taking down the fences, a fountain was added, making it a very hospitable environment. According to Paula Zeszotarski, " [The renovation] has changed this part of campus. It ' s changed the whole quality of life. This used to be no-man ' s land. Now it ' s the best part of campus! " 24 CAMPUS REVIVAL . Students lake advantage ol the many 25 FEATURE NORTHERN LIGHTS By Sue Wichayanuparp Located just behind Rolfe Hall, Northern Lights was this year ' s most recent addition to our campus. With its glowing fireplace and celestial atmosphere, Northern Lights had a warm and inviting feel to it. Because of its close proximity to the Anderson School of Management, the English Department, and the School of Theater, Northern Lights gave Espresso Roma and Jimmy ' s Coffeehouse some serious competition. Although Northern Lights duplicated much of Kerckhoff ' s menu by serving many of the same drinks and Baskin Robbin ' s ice-cream, they expanded their offerings to include more pasta salads and pastries. In addition, visitors to the newest coffee shop marveled at its spaciousness. " Northern Lights has a way better layout. There ' s more room and more espresso machines, " remarked Andrew Keefe, a fourth year mechanical engineering student. Besides its physical layout, much of Northern Light ' s allure was in its decor. Just before entering, visitors were greeted by the image of a steaming cup of coffee which hung just above the doorway. In keeping with its modern atmosphere, Northern Lights also included a brightly painted blue and white ceiling, metallic seats, and 90s music as part of its unique charm. These were just a few things that set Northern Lights apart from any of the other coffeehouses on campus. Since a cup of coffee has always been the number one remedy for midterm blues, finals week woes, and any other affliction associated with being a student, Northern Lights never had a shortage of patrons.

The Bruins settled it, and we didn ' t do the job. " . 35 I Rivalry hv Matthew Hevn r by Matthew Heyn This year, for the 66th time in their prestigious histories, USC and UCLA competed in the cross-town grudge match at the Rose Bowl. Coming at the end of lackluster seasons for both teams, they competed for pride, honor, and the coveted " victory bell. " The rivalry between the two schools goes well back to the founding of UCLA in 1919, when USC students burned a bonfire which had been set for a UCLA rally. Many of these early traditions have prevailed, some in altered form, together with a number of new ones introduced in the succeeding years. In 1939, a bell from the a Southern California railroad car was donated to the student body by the UCLA Alumni Association. This bell was originally the school ' s symbol of victory that rang out points during Bruin home games. Then, in 1941, the " victory bell " was stolen by USC fraternity brothers who allegedly hid it somewhere in the Hollywood Hills. Hostilities intensified, resulting in a rash of vandalism, and a threat to kidnap USC student body president, Bob McKay. Finally, an agreement was reached whereby the bell became a trophy for the winner of the annual match-up: it would sit in a red or blue carriage signaling Trojan carriagt, iwlaU|t ilffl been i noaUt tufa of UK pr MurtonT i ado it 36 M ACT open! fe feat poled ton in oon This ' Courtesy of University or UCLA wins, respectively. For the last six years, the bell has been in a blue carriage, indicating UCLA dominance. Tommy Trojan, the 14-foot bronze statue in the heart of the USC, has also been a notable target. In 1941, a group of UCLA students splashed buckets of blue paint on the mascot. The next year, an aerial attack was launched by Bruins who rented a helicopter, and dumped 500 pounds of manure on Tommy. UCLA ' s card stunts have become another weapon in the rivalry. A favorite card stunt performed by Bruins at USC games displays, " WE CANT BUY OUR DIPLOMAS. " One of the most creative pranks occurred in 1982, just after the Bruins moved from the Coliseum to the Rose Bowl. Many students and alumni wanted to ban USC ' s horse mascot, Traveler IV, from the Rose Bowl, and sent over 150 angry letters to The Daily Bruin. After the two schools decided Traveler would still be allowed at the Rose Bowl, a UCLA undergraduate arranged for UCLA ' s own riding mascot, a Clydesdale borrowed from the Anheuser-Busch Company. His fraternity brother surprised all the Trojans when he rode out at the beginning of the game, and after each time UCLA scored. Courtesy of University Archives For the sixth consecutive year, ihe prestigious " Victory Bell " remained with the Bruins. The bell signified the win over USC in the 66th meeting of the two cross-town rival universities. 37 EVENTS A; fter a week of rain and looming clouds during the Kusanti Abdul-Salaam picked up this Trojan fumble .beat SC festivities, Saturday ' s football game and took it to the Bruin 44-yard line.

The biggest game of the year is preceded by a week of events dubbed, " Beat $C Week. " Throughout the week, a variety of events, sponsored by the Student Alumni Association (SAA), fired up the Bruin fans. Events were held in Westwood Plaza. Among those events, Bruins were able to throw pies at students masquerading as USC students. " As a member of the Campus Spirit Committee, I dressed up as a USC student, and allowed UCLA students to throw pies at me. I was amazed at how spirited the Bruins became, " remarked Amy Leonard, a third year anthropology major. On Wednesday, the annual car smash allowed students to show Bruin pride. A car was painted with Trojan insignia, and UCLA students were able to take turns smashing it with a baseball bat. As an expression of UCLA spirit, a rally was held Thursday night. Although the Trojan bonfire was cancelled because of rain, the rally was still held in Pauley Pavilion. The football team, water polo team, UCLA Band, and spirit squad participated in promoting spirit for the big game. These activities, capturing the essence of the rivalry between UCLA and USC, attracted students as well as the news media. " Beat $C Week " served to create spirit in the UCLA community. As the week ended, enough school spirit remained for the much anticipated football game. tt h-i 40 A USC decorated car rolled into Westwood plaza during Beat SC Week; and students took turns bashing the car with a mallet. The event invited many students to vent thier anger toward the cross- town rival school in a unique manner. SAA rallied for school spirit by organizing Beat SC Week. The week was filled with various events to ignite UCLA unity.

Plans After GRADUATION? Do seniors really know what they want to do after graduation? There are plenty of options for graduating seniors journeying into the " real world. " For Roger Chen, graduation will hopefully lead to professional acting. With a political science degree, breaking into the acting world is a difficult task. He plans to take a year off, while building up his acting resume and networking. " I ' ll need to do a lot of acting, including unpaid parts, just to get some experience in the business. I ' ll also need to get an agent, " said Chen. Mike Muckerheide FEATURE " Hopefully, with all these things working for me, I ' ll be able get my foot in the door. " For other seniors, continuing their education is another alternative. Dara Jones, a graduating senior in art history, is planning to attend graduate school. Taking the GRE is one step towards this goal. In addition to GRE scores, graduate schools also take into account the application, letters of recommendation, and internships. In graduate school, Jones will continue to pursue art history along with museum studies. Her ultimate goal is to work as a museum curator. " I studied abroad in Italy for a year. It really kept my interest in working for a museum, " said Jones. A third alternative after graduation is to go straight into a career. This is the path chosen by Ivan Yong, a graduating senior in economics. Yong is pursuing a career in the competitive field of management consulting. Yong has not only been interviewing throughout the year, but has also attended workshops and seminars. " The key thing to remember is that companies interview during the school year. If you don ' t look for a job until after graduation, it may be a while before you find employment, " said Yong. Esther Chang, a graduating senior in math applied economics and political science, conveyed what most seniors feel about graduation: " I ' m relieved that it ' s finally over, but nostalgic about all the good times that I ' ve had here. " By Christa Gomez Recruitment and job fairs were resources thai graduating seniors took advantage of in the planning for life after UCLA. SEV 56 AFTER GRADUATION PEOPLE Jennifer Chin, a second-year English major, was one of many students who took advantage of the Education Abroad Program. Along the streets of London, Jennifer feeds a bird . Students were given the opportunity to go shopping during their stay. At a souvenir shop in Amsterdam, Katie Wise models oversized traditional shoes. Courtesy of Katie Wise Courtesy of Hyok Chang Korea was a popular country of choice for students travelling abroad. In addition to learning about the Korean culture, Hyok Chang visited historical landmarks. EAR M I C H E L L E B A N T A Courtesy of Jennifer Chin CHANCE Students were given the opportunity to discover a multitude of cultures. Bruins found their niche, several time zones away, while morning broke in some countries and night fell upon others. UC students have studied abroad for over thirty years. Since 1962, the Education Abroad Program (EAP) has offered Bruins an opportunity to discover the world. " The philosophy of the Education Abroad Program has been to provide full academic and social ' immersion ' for our students, " said EAP student representative, Hyok C. Chong. Students could choose from 33 countries, ranging from Barbados to South Africa. Thirty programs, each lasting one semester, were available for those who desired short-term visits. Over 100 well-respected university support groups were there to provide service to students. " This is not an easy task, but our students prove year in and year out, that they can make great progress towards assimilating into their new countries, " Chong continued. Transition was relatively easy for most students. Upon arrival, students underwent intensive language training and reviewed cultural " do ' s and don ' ts. " " At first I wasn ' t sure what to expect. Some buildings in Madrid seemed the same as in New York, " said Priscilla Herbilla, a fourth year Spanish and psychology major. " But little by little, I got used to my surroundings and the language. " Students who studied abroad found adventure. With open minds they experienced all that another culture could offer. Some even went beyond the boundaries of their chosen country for a first-hand " feel " of the sights and sounds of surrounding countries. " So much happened. I was able to travel to see other parts of Europe. Aside from experiencing other European cultures, I even went to Morocco, " said Herbilla. Studying abroad breaks the trend of living comfortably in familiar environments. The challenge it offers leaves students with lasting impressions, as well as valuable lessons of life. For some, one experience abroad was not enough. Chong, who studied abroad twice (in the United Kingdom and Japan) said, " I found myself more daring. I tried many things 1 had never tried before. In England, I was introduced to cricket and rugby by my English classmates. " Undoubtedly, many students felt renewed and empowered after experiencing life in another country. " After studying abroad, there ' s so much more I know I want to do, " concluded Herbilla. 59 PEOPLE Prayer is an important aspect of most religions. It is both a personal and communal way of expressing religious faith. Passing out pamphlets is a popular way for many religious groups to share their beliefs with other students. Nina Gregory 60 RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS w E N D Y T A N DIVERSITY Organizations on campus provide students with an opportunity to learn about their faith as well as others. Although such diversity of religious groups may be overwhelming to students, it is generally looked upon as an accepted part of college life. It is virtually impossible to walk down Bruin Walk without noticing the number of groups representing various religions. Of approximately 230 registered organizations on campus, more than 45 have some sort of religious affiliation. The diverse collection of religious groups, from the Jewish Bible Study for Non-Jews to the Asian American Christian Fellowship, provides a variety of spiritual, psychological, and even academic support. Rather than revolving solely around social, athletic, or service activities, these clubs integrate their meetings and activities with their religious beliefs. " We ' re very focused on teaching from the Bible. We want to let people know why we believe the way we do, " commented Sheri Lee, a third year business student and member of Grace on Campus. Religious groups often provide services to students, such as contacts and information from outside the college community. Many religious students also feel that their organizations provide a sense of support and encouragement, and a place to meet others with similar beliefs and values. Most groups meet weekly, and some have additional meetings divided into smaller and more personal groups. For those students who are yet unsure about their faith, an assortment of organizations give them a chance to discover and compare the aspects of different religions. Many of these groups are open to any interested students, not just to devout members of the faith. As expressed by Daisy Wang, a third year economics major and Co-Director of the Buddhist Student Association, " A lot of our members are explorers who come to find out what it ' s about. We welcome anyone who ' s even slightly interested. " Nina Gregory 61 PEOPLE Anything goes at UCLA! Bold prints and funky color schemes can add to any outfit. Practical UCLA students opt for comfortable wear. Loose shirts and khakis never go out of style. Angela Ashman Backpacks do more than just hold books. Utility and fashion are combined to create individual style. , FASHION -.- CATWALK Bruins show their stuff, displaying a wide range of styles, from casual to dressy. Every morning before school, thousands of students look outside to check the weather. The question, " What am I going to wear today? " undoubtedly resonated from within. Warm? Maybe the cK baby-tee? Chilly? How about that Tommy Hilfiger cable-knit sweater? Once clothing had been decided, shoes become another dilemma. Comfortable or chic, choices range from Adidas slippers, Doc Martens, the old Converse tennies, and sometimes three to five inch platforms. Despite the morning ' s indecision, Bruins were always ready to strut their stuff down Bruin Walk, UCLA ' s metaphorical cat walk. By mid-day, students convene along benches and tables of Bruin Walk ' s 1,800 foot stretch. On a daily basis, various students browse among the steady flow of fellow Bruins passing through Westwood Plaza and Kerckhoff Hall. Remarks which echo hints of Forrest Gump were uttered as students commented to themselves, " those must be comfortable shoes. " At other times, when one ' s style reflected the bizarre, remarks mimicked Alicia Silverstone ' s PC comment, " I must give her courageous snaps for her fashion effort. " Some students enjoy showing off their threads along the walk for personal reasons. Others like to live up to the label of " fashion plate. " The appropriate dress rested with the opinion of the individual wearing it, and with those who noticed. " Some tend to over-dress, like they ' re going clubbing, " said Mark Carter, a fourth year biochemistry student. Despite the flattery of catching the attention and admiration of onlookers, others were hardly flattered. A handful of other students often feel criticized and judged. " People try to recruit you along the walk, yet before they decide to, they judge you by your appearance, " said Sonia Camarillo, a second year pre-biology major. For the most part, many students dress casually: jeans, shorts, T-shirts. Also among the casuals, there are always spirited students wearing UCLA paraphernalia. " Bruin Walk is the place where different fashion trends are witnessed the most trendy to the laid back. There are joggers, people who really dress-up, and people who just don ' t care, " said Omar Araizia, a second year English major. Each day fashion-frenzied students wear their final decisions, answering the perennial question of, " what will I wear today " to their satisfaction. Besides serving as a bustling walkway to campus, Bruin Walk is ultimately the focal point of fashion. M I C H E L L E B A N T A Angela Ashman 63 _ X_J Commuting Bruins had to put up with the everyday hassles of long drives and crowded parking lots. COMMUTERS CO MM IITI R A F NG M I C H E L L E B A N T A For some Bruins, the school day begins behind the wheel. Not all Bruins have the luxury of walking fairly short distances to get to campus. Rather, a certain population of Bruins cross freeways, streets, and more freeways just to get to school. They are the commuter Bruins. For commuters, the drive home demands patience, energy and undoubtedly, a reliable car. Commuter Bruins wake up as early as 5 a.m to get ready for class, and then leave as early as possible to avoid congested freeways and streets. Sometimes the trip to school lasts an hour and a half up to three hours a day round trip! " Commuters should anticipate that anything traffic, accidents can happen, " said Ruben Pena, a second year math major. " My car has broken down in the past. That ' s why its safe to allow about a half-hour cushion. " In L. A., traffic is inevitable, especially on the 405 near LAX. For many commuter Bruins, traffic is a daily test of tolerance. " I get traffic. I hate traffic. I hate it! " exclaimed Angelica Herrera, a second year sociology major. On a lighter note, Bruins looked for optimistic ways to deal with their ordeal. While commuting on the 405, UCLA pride, in the form of UCLA bumper stickers, could be found on various cars. " On my way to school one day, during heavy traffic, I noticed a car with a UCLA bumper sticker. I showed him my approval with a thumbs up, " said Emma Chavez, a second year sociology major. " It turned out that we both have permits to the same parking structure! I was so surprised. We still see each other from time to time. " 65 dft HP W PEOPLE IUALRY NORTH V S SOUTH North and South campus display different facades which lead to certain stereotypes. Ask any Bruin to describe UCLA ' s North and South campuses, and you are likely to get two dramatically different responses. While North campus is considered home to humanities and liberal arts majors, South campus is filled with students in the science and engineering fields. Even upon first glance, the two regions exhibit a glaring physical difference. North campus is well-known for the abundance of shady trees and green grass, the Sculpture Garden, and such architectural feats as Royce Hall. In stark contrast, South campus ' buildings have a more austere and stoic look, exemplified by Young Hall, UCLA ' s chemistry building. continued s u E W I c H A Y A N U P A R P The Sculpture Garden provides a peaceful atmosphere where students can both study and enjoy the fine arts. The South campus mosaics add a refreshing splash of color to the otherwise sterile and gray environment. Kershasp Dalai 67 PEOPLE Students pass by one of the few sculptures found on South Campus. This work of art is known as the " ear wax sculpture. " Many students also believe that the differences between North and South campus transcend appearance. Because the sciences are traditionally considered a competitive field, many South campus majors are perceived by others as extremely studious, and unwilling to assist their fellow classmates with homework. Unfortunately for many South campus students, this is one stereotype that seems to be true. " In math and science classes, all anyone cares about is getting the ' A, ' " commented fourth year physics student, Scott Adler. " No one really wants to help you. They ' re only worried about themselves. " Despite such negativity, South campus Bruins claim that there are advantages to science courses. Science majors feel the chemistry and biology classes are often useful for understanding how their body, and the world around them, operates. ' The things we learn in our classes are more relevant to life, " stated Anita Lee, a fourth year biochemistry major. In comparison to South campus majors, North campus students have a reputation for being " artsy " and carefree. The humanities and liberal arts classes are often considered to be less structured and more open to discussion and debate of controversial ideas, than either those of math or science. " North campus classes are less rigid and allow for more interaction, " claimed Theresa Yu, a second year English major. The truth of North and South campus stereotypes can never really be proven. There are always exceptions to every rule. Although each campus may differ in both appearance and course of study, it is these very differences which make UCLA as diverse as it is today. NORTH vs. SOUTH The abstract sculptures surrounding Dickson plaza create an open and creative atmosphere that is unique to North campus. The inverted fountain provides a welcomed reprieve for South campus students seeking to escape from their hectic schedules. PEOPLE After many hours of preparation, the marching band performs Game Day at the Rose Bowl during half-time. The enthusiasm of the marching band increased school spirit among the crowd for their home team. 70 MARCHING BAND Mike Muckerheide PERFORM Despite long, time-consuming practices, the marching band has fun and rouses spirit. C H R I S T A G M E Z The UCLA marching band is comprised of over 200 members. The brass, woodwind, drumline, and color guard sections contribute to the excitement, fanfare, and spirit that we have all experienced at sporting events. In order to accomplish this, band members work extremely hard throughout fall quarter. Practices are long, rigorous, and exhausting. All potential band members are first required to audition. Once selected, they join other members for practice three times a week. At the star t of the school year, members are required to attend " band camp. " Band camp is where the foundation is set for the entire season. It ' s where they learn all of their routines and songs. " It is a strenuous exhibition of sheer torture, but it is vital to our performances " , said John Lee, a sophomore in political science. " It ' s a lot of hard work, but we also have loads of fun. " The marching band performs at every home game between plays and at half-time. As important as it is to keep the athletes ' spirits up, the band knows also the essential thrills of pumping up the crowd. " It ' s really a lot of fun when the audience interacts with us, and enjoys our music, " said Aaron Bitzer, a sophomore majoring in music. There are numerous reasons to be involved in the band. For many, band in college is much more relaxed than in high school. Members receive class credit, free attendance to all games, and monetary compensation for certain positions. " Band is like a family to me " , said Jenny Plzak, a sophomore in history. " I don ' t always like practices, but performing makes it all worth it. I would really miss it if it wasn ' t a part of my life. " Mike Muckerheide 71 72 FACULTY Biology professor, Paula Jackson, lectures in Dickson before a class of 300 students. Making the material come alive to large classes has been a challenge for many professors. L 1 F U P - L O S M A T T H E W H E Y N Being a professor may not be as easy as others perceive it to be. Professorship. Sure, it sounds like an easy job. Teach a couple lectures a week, hold some office hours, work nine months a year, spend the rest of the days having TA ' s grade papers, and publish a little research in the subject of choice. What could be easier? Actually, for the majority of professors, days are long, hard, and free time is a scarce element. Although most professors don ' t teach more than two classes a week, the prep-time for a single lecture can take most of the day. From reading diversified materials to organizing and directing teaching assistants, most professors dedicate most of their time to teaching. For biology Professor Paula Jackson, her hectic day begins early. She picks up slides for the day ' s lecture before meeting with her TA ' s at 9 in the morning to discuss how the lab should be run. Lunch is usually in the office. If she ' s lucky, she can squeeze in time to e-mail her research colleagues before her biology lecture of nearly 300 students. Although she specializes as a lecturer here at UCLA, she is currently involved in two major projects: one in Brazil, studying diversity mechanisms, and the other in Panama, cataloging the forest canopy. According to Professor Jackson, a graduate from UCLA, " A lot of the hassles [of the job] are time related. [They are] small problems you don ' t have the time to deal with. " Professorship offers benefits as well. Philosophy Professor Seana Shiffrin points out that UCLA offers its professors an excellent campus, one of the world ' s best libraries, contact with a wide variety of people , and students who are motivated to learn. However, she worries about decreased funding for the library and the lack of collective bargaining power for TAs. Professor Shiffrin is working in a " tenure track " position at UCLA. Depending on the individual department, new professors teach and do research for a period of five to seven years. At the end of that time, they are evaluated for tenure. If they receive it, they have job security for their careers. If they are denied tenure, they generally move on. For new professors, the drive for tenure can be intense. Professor Shiffrin is currently doing her research on meta-ethic, and is on her first year of tenure track. 73 PEOPLE Joe and Josephine Bruin were seen at many UCLA events leading and participating in crowd pleasing cheers. After practicing for countless hours, the UCLA cheerleaders perform on game day. Their hard work and dedication to arousing spirit helped to pump up the crowd. 74 SPIRIT SQUAD K E L L Y K R U E G E R Mike Muckerheide LEADING The Spirit Squad dedicates their time and energy to encouraging Bruin unity and pride. What would a football game be without the UCLA spirit squad? Probably much quieter and less spirited. Most people see the acrobatic cheerleaders, energetic yell leaders, peppy Joe and Josephine Bruin, and the rhythmic dance team at sporting events. What few realize is the time, dedication, and skill needed to fulfill these positions. The yell leaders encourage the crowd by leading cheers over a microphone. Yell leaders encourage the crowd to participate in one of the most popular cheers at UCLA, the eight-clap. Their other duty is to lead the student section in half-time card stunts during football games. The mascots, Joe and Josephine Bruin, are the official representatives of UCLA. These lovable bears usually perform skits to entertain the crowds. Both the cheerleaders and dance team practice long hours in order to perfect their routines. The cheerleaders practice stunts and tumbling passes which accompany their chants at the games. " We practice six hours a week in addition to games and other events, such as Alumni breakfasts and the ' SC bonfire, " commented Jaclyn Parker, a second year physiological science major. The dance team also devotes many hours to practicing their routines. At games, and sometimes even at half-time, the team dances to music played by the band. Dancing skills, such as turns and kicks, add spirit to the games. Together, the UCLA spirit squad contribute to the energetic atmosphere at school and sporting events. Mike Muckerheide 75 PEOPLE Students often took advantage of company representatives that participated in the job fairs which took place in the Ackerman Grand Ballroom. Student would set up appointments and interviews for possible job oportunities. 76 JOB FAIRS Mike Muckerheide PROVIDING With the worry of finding a job after graduation, job fairs were available as resources for students. The real world. For many students these three simple words conjure up vague and frightening images of leaving the comfort of the academic classroom and entering an uncertain life of self-sufficiency and rigid eight-hour work days. Yet, as ambiguous as this concept is, the fear and panic it instills in the hearts of Bruins, from graduating seniors to freshmen, is very much real. In hopes of easing the fears of students and preparing them to meet the challenges of the " real " working world, many on-campus organizations sponsor information nights and career fairs. The largest of these events was the " Jobs for Bruins " Career Fair, put together by the UCLA Career Center during the fall quarter. Held in Ackerman Grand Ballroom, the event brought together recruiters from 90 different companies in diverse fields, ranging from investment banking to volunteer services such as the Peace Corps. While some of the 2,400 attendees were dressed in suits with resumes in hand, others just wanted to browse and explore various career opportunities. " It was a nerve wracking experience, " said Alan Yeh, a fourth year business- economics student. " You only have a few seconds to impress people who could determine your career. " According to Joyce Haraughty, Marketing Manager for the Career Center and one of the coordinators of " Jobs for Bruins, " the event was an overall success. " The feedback we get [from the students] is usually positive. The most common remark I ' ve heard is that it opens their eyes to different career opportunities, to things they never thought of. " A similar event presented the news media field. Directed at students interested in careers in the media, the Media Job Fair represented staff from well known news organizations such as CNN and CBS. Even students like sophomore, Rachel Chang, who was still two years away from graduating, felt it was never too early to begin the job search process. " 1 think it is a good opportunity to start networking with professionals in the real world, " said Chang. " In the classroom you only get an academic viewpoint, but you don ' t get a practical view. " C H E R R Y W I C H A Y A N U P A R P Mike Muckerheide 77 PEOPLE Putting the finishing touches on her painting, second year student Eulalia Halloran enjoys being in a unique major. Most students in these majors appreciated the smaller class sizes and the personal attention. Using a pair of pliers, Sharon Schloss works on her art project. Alternative majors provided students with the opportunity to express their creative side. 78 MAJORS LOQUJNG FOR ALTERNATIVES While impacted majors, such as Communication Studies and Biology exist, there are still those students who choose majors that are less popular. 1 C H R I S T A G M E Z UCLA offers a variety of different majors for students. However, despite the wide range of options, some majors like communications studies and biology are impacted. It is a common occurrence for students to attend overcrowded lectures and office hour sessions. For those who want to avoid these hassles, " alternative " majors can be the way to go. Film, an example of such a major, is a small and fiercely competitive field. The UCLA film school is ranked as one of the top three in the nation. To apply for the major, propects must submit three papers along with their application. Only seventeen out of 200 transfer students were accepted this year. Classes involve screen writing, cinematography, and TV production. " Film was something I really wanted to pursue, " said Lulu Cheah, a transfer student in film. " I applied, not knowing whether I would get in, but I wanted to go for the dream. " Another alternative major, also from the School of Arts, is the recently reorganized design major. Acceptance into th e design major requires students to turn in a portfolio of sample works to be reviewed by department heads. Yet, for some students their motivation in choosing an alternative major is a consequence of something more than just artistic talent. " I wanted a major away from the mainstream, " said Christine Wilkie, a senior majoring in world arts and cultures and the study of religion. " I looked through the catalogue until I found what interested me. " Although " mainstream " majors can be just as fulfilling, smaller classes and individualized attention are some perks of " alternative " majors. 79 election prop 209 jackson smoking safety health 1 S Republican presidential candidate Bob Clinton makes his : Theatre at the University of San Diego on October ! Photo by AP Worla . ' m Tiber sits I student | class. m lilt VOICES of Democracy A country in the midst of a presidential election is typically inundated with campaigns, debates, and political rhetoric. In 1996, UCLA became a political battleground. Campus organizations stationed themselves on Bruin Walk registering voters, handing out bumper stickers, and promoting their causes. On November 5th President Bill Clinton was re-elected as the leader who would guide us towards the 21st century. THE ISSUES By Matthew Heyn The 1996 election gave many Bruins a chance to fulfill their civic duties in choosing the president, and in deciding on some very significant measures on the ballot. In addition to choosing incumbent President Bill Clinton and veteran Senator Bob Dole, voters determined the fate of affirmative action in California, the state minimum wage, whether or not physicians can legally prescribe marijuana, and other important issues. The California Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI or Prop 209) was a hotly debated issue on campus, and in the state at large. Effectively ending affirmative action statewide, the measure received large support from the electorate. UCLA ' s own " Students Firstl " , a coalition of USAC members led by president John Du, attacked the measure in a campaign called ' The Death of Education. " " Students First! " also organized a massive voter registration campaign in addition to large protests which informed voters on how initiatives would affect students. Prop 209 reached its political climax when the California State University at Northridge hosted a debate on the issue between a Los Angeles civil rights advocate and former Ku Klux Klan member, David Duke. Passions seared and a riot broke out at CSUN, l eaving five injured and six arrested. Also on the ballot was the Medical Use of Marijuana Initiative. It allowed for the possession and use of marijuana when prescribed by a physician. State Attorney General, Dan Lungren, brought the issue to the forefront when he approved a highly publicized raid on the " San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club, " an underground establishment where people with AIDS, cancer, and other painful conditions could purchase the drug. This initiative, as well as the move to raise the state minimum wage, received wide acceptance among UCLA students. ELECTION ' 96 Reverend Jesse Jackson spoke at the Federal Building in Westwood during a rally against Proposition 209. " Keep Ihe hope alive, " was a common phrase heard as students, citizens, and public figures such as Bruce Springsteen united. Former UCIA professor Angela Davis expresses her views against Proposition 209. She was one of many who favored the protection of affirmative action. Kershasp Dalai These important issues almost eclipsed the presidential race between Republican Senator from Kansas, Bob Dole, and Democratic incumbent President, Bill Clinton. The candidates battled it out through months of campaigning, but Clinton ' s sizable lead kept hopes for a Republican White House low. On campus, President Clinton appealed greatly to students. According to Darrin Horwitz, a fourth year political science major and member of Bruin Democrats, " Bob Dole is pretty much out of touch with young people. Clinton ' s agenda really affects the interests of young people. He has a pro-education agenda, and a pro- environment agenda. " Going into the first debate, Newsweek reported that Clinton held a sizable 21 point lead over Dole. During the Hartford debates, Dole attacked Clinton ' s weak drug policy, and painted him as a liberal hiding in conservative clothing. Clinton rebuffed by discrediting Dole ' s 15% tax cut. Both were remarkably congenial and non-confrontational. As for the results, a Newsweek poll showed that 49% of Americans thought Clinton did better, helping him to maintain his 21 point lead over Dole. The vice-presidential debates between Jack Kemp and Al Gore centered on the competing interests of business versus environment. Amidst all the television hoopla, massive efforts were made on campus to mobilize student voters who are stereotypically perceived as apathetic. Bruin Democrats registered well over 700 voters, 300- 400 on the last day. Just down the hill, Billy Dredd registered 100- 150 a day for the few days he visited UCLA. Dredd, a private contractor and fifth generation Californian, tours many campuses registering the student bodies. According to Dredd, " UCLA is one of the most politically active schools in the area. " 89 FEATURE BRUIN DEMOCRATS BRUIN REPUBLICANS By Sue Wichayanuparp Every four years, our nation anxiously awaits the outcome of the presidential elections. As with every election year, members of both the Republican and Democratic parties discuss issues that will affect the lives of every American. This year ' s presidential elections, because of its focus on youths and education, spurred a considerable amount of interest from members of UCLAs student body. One of the most controversial and widely debated issues on college campuses was Proposition 209, also called the California Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI) by its proponents. " Education is the most important issue in this election. Prop 209 is one of the front-runners this year, and as Democrats, we are doing our best to keep affirmative action, " declared Michael Schneider, a fifth year student and President of Bruin Democrats. However, supporters of Prop 209 felt that it levels the playing field for all students, and causes beneficial changes to colleges across the nation. " We are in support of equal opportunity, not reverse discrimination, " stated Jason Steele, a third year political science major and President of Bruin Republicans. " Nothing could be more geared towards equal opportunity than Prop 209. " Among other issues, Democrats accused Republican nominee Senator Bob Dole, of being anti-education. They felt that he would end school programs that are helpful to students. " Dole wants to eliminate the Department of Education. Programs such as Headstart, Goals 2000, and Americorp are all under attack, and that ' s why we ' re fighting for a Democrat to be in office, " explained Schneider. However, Dole supporters claimed that he has always been in favor of educational funding and his opposition to such programs was due to the fact that the programs are ineffective. Additionally, Republicans have cited Dole ' s proposed 15% tax cut as an example of how his programs would benefit the country. " Every time taxes have been cut in the past, we have seen an economic growth, " commented Steele. " The tax cut is long overdue, it will stimulate and be a great benefit to the economy. " The 1996 elections proved that whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, the issues raised this year affected each and every one of us. Bruin Republicans positioned themselves on Bruin Walk in support o( the Dole Kemp ticket. On October 23, 1996 students held a massive call for action rally in the middle o( Westwood Plaza to oppose the passing of Proposition 209. Following the rally, there was a march into Westwood that resulted in 34 student arrests for civil disobedience. Michelle Chang A J, I WO students pin hands and marched into Weslwood with the message, " Take back our university. " FEATURE DEATH OF EDUCATION By Adrienne Martinez Tombstones on Bruin Walk!? During the " Death of Education " campaign put on by USAC and various campus groups, the UCLA campus was transformed into a graveyard overnight. This mass action, during which students set up tombstones in honor of recently " deceased " programs, attempted to shed light on generally overlooked issues affecting students and their community. At various stations on campus, the students prepared to answer questions and distribute information on various statewide and national issues. " The purpose of the Death of Education campaign was to wake students up about issues affecting their education, " said USAC President, John Du, a fifth year economics major. " The ' Death of Education ' [campaign] showed students the urgency with which we need to fight for our education. " One such program that lent students textbooks for a quarter if they could not afford to buy their own was not offered this year due to cuts in school support and funding. To represent the loss of the Book Lending Program, students filled a coffin with commonly purchased textbooks. The Muslim Student Association, MEChA, Samahang Pilipino and GALA were just a few of the groups involved in the planning and execution of this project. USAC External Vice President, Albert Retana, organized the groups and propelled the project forward by mobilizing issue committees. The group was separated by issue and each issue was dealt with 94 ELECTION ' 96 - AP Wide Worfd Photos at an appropriate location on campus. Issues of Financial Aid cuts and rising tuition costs were directed at the students population near Murphy Hall, while the possible loss of Affirmative Action programs were located in front of Campbell Hall. Near the highrise dorms, activists dressed as prisoners to remind students that more tax dollars go toward building prisons than toward building institutions of higher education. The " Death of Education " served to inform the student population of issues facing everyone associated with the UC system. It also called for all students and faculty to stand up for their rights at UCLA. " Without action, a lot of programs currently benefiting students will die, " Du said. President Clinton, First Lady Hillary, Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper greet supporters in front of the Old State House during an election night celebration in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The main concern students experienced during those long summer months of anticipation, was whether or not they would like their roommate(s). Students wondered how they would deal with all of the quirks and habits of a stranger. Living in a room barely big enough to walk in was bad enough!

But for Mike Wang and Greg Chan, second year residents of Sunset Village, the roommate business hasn ' t been much of a problem.

Although Wang is a computer science major and loves cartoons while Chan is a pre-med Trekkie, their differences haven ' t brought about any major disagreements. " We rarely get into conflicts, and if we do, we always talk it out, " said Wang. As for division of the cleaning chores, neither really has any complaints: " We take turns when taking out the trash. But vacuuming? No one does it, " commented Chang. Whatever their roommate rules may be, the two are definitely an exception to the " horror story " roommate stereotype.

" Since I ' m an only child, I was nervous about living with a roommate, " said Richman, a freshman in world arts and cultures. " I didn ' t know what it would be like to live and share things with someone else. " Luckily, she was paired with Mesri, and the two got along great. The duo miraculously remained considerate and respectful to one another throughout the year. " I ' m really glad I roomed with someone who was willing to compromise, " said Mesri, a senior in political science. Mesri and Richman are more than just roommates - they are friends, too.

It I MOVING story by Kelly Krueger ndreds of people trying to fit in tiny elevators, with boxes of ir personal belongings and family members in tow. Sounds like a trick done at the circus with a VW bug, right? Wrong. It was move-in day at the UCLA dorms. Those who were returning for another year of dorm life were prepared. Those who were coming for the first time were blissfully ignorant. Either way, when they drove into their dorm ' s turn-around and encountered the gridlock, reality set in. Students fought to stabilize the conflicting emotions between their newfound freedom, and the worries that go along with leaving home. In the midst of frenzied students, parents and siblings attempted to lug dorm " must- haves, " like bedding, clothes, and of course the most important items, televisions and stereos, into the rooms. While family helped accelerate the move-in process, they also contributed to the chaos by adding more opinions about how the new rooms should look. While parents were arranging and rearranging the rooms, students were worrying about matters they felt were more important. Students were seen walking up and down the halls, checking out who their neighbors would be for the year. Making friends, and finding people to hang-out with for the first week were top priorities for many students. " On the first day, I met one of my best friends in the bathroom on my floor, " said Mary Kovacs, a first-year pre- business economics major. Overall, " Move-In Day " was a mass of people trying to adjust to a new environment. Parents wanted to make their children ' s lives comfortable in the dorms, while students were ready to start new ones. Once the confusion of " Move- In Day " subsided, and the elevators emptied out (not completely of course), students could finally look forward to the upcoming year. MOVING SPROUL HALL 127 RESIDENTIAL LIFE 128 WELCOME WEEK In the Sproul Entertainment Center, students were invited to join in a game of Twister. This was one of many activities encouraging students to feel more welcome at UCLA. Rocel Ryan story by Kelly Krueger Dpular question that was heard floating through dorm halls [ first week of school was, " What is there to do? " Dorm government staffs answered that question with an array of activities. During the first week, each hall had an activity planned in order for students to get to know each other. Starting Sunday, barbecues and dinners were planned so residents could mingle. That night, Mission Impossible was shown in the Northwest Campus Auditorium. First year Rieber Hall resident, Zachary Foster, stated, ' The movie night was a really nice introduction to UCLA. It wasn ' t only because they showed Mission Impossible, but because it was a perfect opportunity to get to know my fellow incoming freshmen. " The rest of the week helped new residents explore the surroundings and the UCLA campus. Some students went on trips to Santa Monica, Hollywood, and Universal Studios. Others who wanted to hang-out at the dorms, played Twister in Sproul, watched a hypnotist in Rieber, or went to the " All Hill Dance " at Hedrick and Dykstra. Dances were a chance for residents from all dorms to meet each other, and have fun at the end of their first week. In the midst of these social activites, many departments held open houses during Welcome Week. Interested students attended seminars at the dorms, and visited with people involved in their field(s) of interest. For out-of-state and transfer students, there were transfer adjustment workshops. Convocation also took place the first week, and was mandatory for first-year students. Students had chances to learn about the Chancellor ' s message, and what UCLA was all about. The message focused on excellence in education, and activities available at UCLA. For dorm residents, the first week was undoubtedly full of things to do. New and returning students alike were able to meet fellow Bruins, and have fun in the process. WELCOME WEEK 129 RESIDENTIAL LIFE Children from neighboring communities were able to satisfy their sweet tooth as residents filled their bags. Besides trick-or-treating, " Hall-o-ween " festivities included haunted houses set up in study lounges. I Koji Harmon HALLOWEEN story by Christa Gomez ft III When October 31st rolls around, the Halloween atmosphere floods our minds with memories of costumes, candy, and haunted houses. Even in college, the holiday spirit was evident, especially for students in the residence halls. For less priveleged children from neighboring communities, the dorms hosted a special night of Halloween fun. The " Hall " -o- ween program provided transportation for inner- city kids to partake in safe trick-or-treating at the dorms. All halls prepared for about 2000 children to participate in the event. ' This program gave residents a chance to be involved with children. The little kids really appreciate our efforts in making their night memorable, " said Henry Ha, a fourth year political science major. To set the spirit and the mood for the evening, the halls decorated each floor and study lounge according to their floor ' s theme. There were haunted houses, students in costumes, and mock graveyards set up in the lounges. Red plastic wrap covered some lights, while others were dimmed, creating an eerie and mysterious setting. There were also jack-o-lanterns, face paintings, and tour guides to show the trick-or-treaters where to go. ' The night was really fun. The most rewarding part was bringing a smile to the kids ' faces, " said Eljin Wong, a sophomore in chemical engineering. Halloween was also celebrated at the dorms in other ways. The On-Campus Housing Council (OCHC) organized an All-Hill Halloween dance. Costumes were optional, and the event was free to residents. HALL-O-WEEIU HAUNT Koji Harmon 131 RESIDENTIAL LIFE story by Wendy Tan Sa the word " pumpkin, " and undoubtedly, Halloween comes to mind. At Hitch Suites, a pumpkin carving program turned out to be a creative and fun pre-Halloween festivity for residents. Hitch staff members spent several weeks working hard to prepare for the event, held outdoors on the sundeck in a lively atmosphere of music and candy. The event provided a rare chance for residents of Hitch to socialize and meet their neighbors. A turnout of forty to fifty participants made the event quite successful. " It ' s really hard to program in the suites and get residents to come out, but we were impressed by the turnout and had a really Koji Harmon good time, " commented Danielle Edouarde, a third year business economics major and Resident Assistant who planned the program. Each participant was given a pumpkin and carving tools with which they could express their artistic talents. The pumpkins were donated by various places in the community, mostly supermarkets such as Ralph ' s and Pavilions. Contributions were also made by Virgin Megastores to be used as prizes for the winners: the scariest, funniest, most creative and best overall pumpkins. Who said Halloween was just for kids? Hitch residents proved otherwise. The event was a great success in its first year of existence. Hopefully, it can become a tradition carried on in future years. As Hitch Suites converted into a pumpkin patch, residents quickly chose their favorite one and began their night of carving.

Student Media Photo i story by Sue Wichayanuparp n a school as large as UCLA, students often arrive iverwhelmed. With college being a completely new experience, some students have a difficult time adjusting to life away from home. However, many Bruins living in the residence halls were able to make themselves feel more at home by finding unusual and creative ways to decorate their rooms. From simply hanging posters and pictures on the walls, to elaborately decorating the entire room, residents of on-campus housing utilized a variety of methods to brighten up their " homes. " Susan Wofsy and her roommates, residents of Hitch Suites, enhanced their common area with several uncommon designs. Upon entering this unique suite, visitors were greeted by the sight of beads draped over tables and lamps, strips of fabric covering the walls, and Christmas lights hanging on the ceiling. Because of their decorations, these residents claimed that their suite now seems more like a home instead of a dorm. " What we ' ve done to the room makes it unique. It feels like our place and a comfortable home, " stated Wofsy, a second year anthropology student. In addition to making students feel more at ease, decorating their room also made the dorm experience more pleasant. Many residents who took the time to decorate their room enjoyed the reactions to their decor that visiting friends had. " Our decorations give the room more dynamics, and every time someone comes in, they always have a reaction, " commented Laura Del Valle, a third year psychology major. " Whether it ' s positive or negative, I like hearing their opinion. " Decorating a room is more than a way to display your favorite items, it is also a means to express your individuality. Personalizing your room not only helps you to better adjust to life in the dorms, but it can make your time there unique and enjoyable. Student Media Phot ROOM DECOR 135 % III MEALS story by Christa Gomez any changes took place in the residence halls this past year. One of the more ticeable differences involved sack lunches. In the years prior to this one, residents were allowed to choose between meal coupons and a sack lunch, as a substition to their meals in the cafeteria. You were allowed one lunch coupon, and one dinner coupon per day. Meal coupons were accepted at all ASUCLA restaurants. During fall quarter, meal coupons were no longer available, so students were required to pack their own lunches in their blue sacks at designated times throughout the day. While lunches were previously packed by cafeteria workers, this year, the residents filled the lunch sacks themselves. To compensate for the elimination of meal coupons, residents were able to choose from a larger variety of lunch meats, chips, fruits, and drinks. Although the new sack lunches resolved the problem of students paying extra for meals, it was inconvenient for some students to make their own lunches. With the widespread opposition to the loss of meal coupons, student government quickly acted to reinstate the program. Over 3,000 students signed petitions for the reissuance of meal coupons. Two weeks later, the residents ' voice was heard and the popular coupons were brought back. The value of the coupon was even raised to $1.90 for lunch and $2.00 for dinner, allowing students to get more meal for their money. " All residents should be happy with what we did. It ' s a win-win situation for everyone, " said Nimesh Narayan, the On-Compus Housing Council (OCHC) chairperson. Other changes in the meal program, however, were not so favorable. A variety of popular favorites were cut from the meal program, such as Sproul Hall ' s stir-fry dish. " There are no more lemon slushies, and the sandwich bar, which used to be open every night, was rarely open. We ' re paying a lot more money this year, but getting a lot less, " continued Lee. Although residents complained about the menu changes in the dorms, the return of the meal coupons eased their disapproval. With the lack of variety in the cafeterias, students could now seek a greater selection of food on campus. Mike Muckertie ICE OF FO 137 RESIDENTIAL LIFE 138 RAs, PAs, SHAs Resident Assistants, such as Danielle Edouarde, help residential students with any housing or personal troubles that they may have. They are also a good source of information about UCLA. story by Christa Gomez bident Assistants are excellent resources to students living in the dorms. Mediating conflicts and offering counseling are part of an RA ' s duties. Not only do RAs help students adjust to dorm life, they also provide academic and general assistance. " My goals as an RA were to give my residents tools to survive at UCLA, as well as the means to succeed, " said Manuel Martinez, a junior in political science. Working with the RA is the Program Assistant whose tasks include organizing and implementing programs to promote floor camaraderie and entertainment. PAs planned numerous activities which served as learning tools, and fostered interaction among floormates. " My main goal was for my residents to get to know each other on a personal level, " said Gina Shao, a junior in biology and chemistry. The last of the three services offered by residential life is the Student Health Advocate (SHA). Comforting and treating students with medical problems, such as the common cold and minor cuts, are just a few of their duties. Serving as a SHA is a great step for students who are considering a career in medicine. The SHA program serves as an excellent link to the professional medical field, providing hands-on experience, and working with an assigned doctor. " People really took advantage of our services, " said Mia Toribio, the SHA Medkit Coordinator and former SHA. " We had a lot to offer them, like contraceptives and free over-the- counter drugs. " Together, the RAs, PAs, and SHAs were important resources to those living on campus. They made adjusting to dorm life and the college experience a lot easier.

For the past three years, Pamela has lived on 2N, also known as the Multicultural Floor, as a resident, a Program Assistant, and this past year, as an RA. Because amongst her duties as RA are to counsel, advise, and maintain the regulations of the residential halls, Pamela finds aspects of her job very rewarding. " Even though you ' re there as a resource and aide to your residents, you end up getting to know each one on a personal level and become their friend, " explained Pamela. The position of an RA carries a lot of responsibilities. It can be overwhelming being " mom dad " to over 60 residents. Most RAs must devise ways to combat the stress that goes along with their job. For Pamela, making school her first priority gives her another focus besides her RA job. ' To avoid getting too caught up in being an RA, I try to put aside some time to do things unrelated to the job. When I ' m just hanging out with friends, spending time with my family, or busy with schoolwork I can unwind and have a moment to myself, " she elaborated. Joy Yuson 141 RESIDENTIAL LIFE RIEBER DINING Students line up to eat dinner i Hard Hal Cafe. f, m j story by Wendy Tan UCKl " is often the first reaction to the sight, smell, and taste of dorm food. Residence hall cafeterias have never been known for serving the most appetizing of meals. Despite all this, no one seemed too happy over the temporary closing of Richer Dining Hall as it underwent reconstruction during Fall quarter. Residents most affected by the change included those of Richer Hall and Saxon Suites. " We didn ' t think it ' d be a big deal because it was only for a quarter, but it really turned out to be an inconvenience having to walk so far just to eat, " noted second year Rieber resident, Judy Gruenwald. Reconstruction of the dining hall lasted from August 1st to Winter quarter. For many residents, this caused quite a distraction. " I live on the second floor, and it ' s really annoying to wake up to the noise of jackhammers at 7:00 in the morning, " commented Jason Yu, a second year biology major. The absence of a dining hall also resulted in the lack of a general meeting place for residents. This effectively reduced the social atmosphere of Rieber. Despite these setbacks, creative alternatives for dining were readily available, such as Fall quarter ' s Special Dinner held in an outdoor tent. The Hard Hat Cafe was temporarily in business at the Rieber back patio, serving dinner to about 250 students each evening. In addition, UCLA Housing officials compensated residents of Rieber and Saxon by installing free " micro- fridges " (handy microwave refrigerator units) in students ' rooms. The greatest benefits, however, came from the new dining hall itself. The alteration changed the thirty-year old " cafeteria line " style of Rieber into a " French market " model. Such a scheme divides the food service area into eight autonomous stations. This set-up allowed for better preparation of food, and shortened the wait in line. Meals were no longer cooked in back rooms, and left to warm under heat lamps. Future changes in other dining halls have been planned in an attempt to modernize the current food delivery program. The cafeterias of the remaining three " high-rises " , namely Hedrick, Sproul, and Dykstra, are all scheduled to be remodeled in the next few years. With these new changes scheduled, students may finally be able to enjoy going to their meals, no longer cringing when the words " dorm food " are uttered.

These labs are easily accessible 24 hours a day.

Conveniently located in Dykstra, Hedrick, Hershey, Rieber, and Sproul, these facilities are open on a 24 hour basis, seven days a week. For the most part, the labs offer students the use of IBM compatibles. The computer lab in Sunset Commons, however, is an exception. Usually open until very late, this lab provides residents with a wide range of computer choices, from Macintoshes to Pentiums. These computers are even hooked up to laser jet printing. Unlike the computer labs in the other dorms, Sunset has proctors who are always available to deal with computer quirks. Lab proctors are hired by the Office of Residential Life. " Despite how hectic it may get in here, we ' re always willing to help, " said proctor Jay Tulathimutte, a third year computer science and engineering major. Instructing students about the proper use of the lab are required before lab use. Residential Student Interns (RSIs) play a significant role in educating and assisting residents with computer problems or questions. Every dorm houses an RSI. " It ' s exciting to give students informative workshops. While they ' re listening, I actually learn more by interacting with them, " said Delee Bersbach, an RSI and second year mechanical engineering major. While many students use the labs to type last minute papers, others take advantage of programs like Excel and Power Point, as well as gaining access to the web and e-mail.

Baskin Robbins, located in Kerckhoff and Northern Lights coffeehouses, holds an impressive reputation, thanks to Bruin ice- cream fanatics. This year, the number one selling item was the refreshing Cappuccino Blast. Coming in at a close second, was an order of a single scoop of ice cream. " We ' re one of the top ten busiest Baskin Robbins west of the Mississippi, " said Kerckhoff manager, David Newlove. Despite the success of Baskin Robbins, Diddy Riese remains a front-runner among students ' snack favorites. Diddy Riese, UCLA ' s most popular cookie corner, is dedicated to serving " hunger- challenged " students. Open as late as la.m, they have never turned students away. For just a buck, Diddy Riese will scoop a choice of ice cream sandwiched between two cookies (yum!). The most frequently sold cookies include chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.

This inter-hall competition was sponsored by the On-campus Housing Council (OCHC) during the first three weeks of November. The mock Olympic events included were basketball, volleyball, a lip sync competition, and " Floor Feud, " modeled after the game show " Family Feud. " These competitions were held mainly in the Men ' s Gym and Pauley Pavilion. Dorm residents were split into four groups: Sproul, Sunset, Rieber, and a conglomeration of Hedrick, Dykstra, Saxon, and Hitch residents. Floor bonding was one of the goals of the event, as both North and South residents on each floor had to combine into teams. " Floor unity was emphasized, but we also tried to promote sportsmanship, camaraderie, and hall identity, " stated Kevin Chen, a second year continued THE HILLYMPICS 149 RESIDENTIAL LIFE Games for [he Hillympics look p! the AAens ' Gym and Paufey Pavilion The event took months lo plan and was only made possible by the hard work and dedication o( the On-Campus RESIDENTIAL LIFE international economics major, and on e of OCHC ' s Program Commissioners. The Program Commissioners spent months planning and organizing the events. Efforts spent on planning paid off, as residents turned out to participate and compete in events. " The purpose of all our events is to get people involved and give residents something to do as an alternative to drinking and partying, " explained Stephanie Chao, a second year math economics major and also OHC Program Commissioner. Event finals produced some exciting results. The basketball and volleyball champs: Rieber 5 and Sproul 5, respectively. Team " Cl " from Sunset proved victorious in the Lip Sync competition. Floor Feud winners turned out to be Sproul 5 and " A3 " from Sunset. Winners were rewarded with pizza and cookie parties sponsored by OHC.

The - . 151 ARCADE story by Wendy Tan I; dead week, and you ' d expect the study lounges to be packed full th people cramming for finals. But as you run down to Puzzles to grab dinner, you glance into the Villager Arcade, and what do you know, it ' s even more crowded than the study lounges! " People come to the arcade so they don ' t have to study, " commented Stan Chiao, a fourth year computer science and engineering major who worked as a proctor for the Villager. Midterms and finals weeks brought about the highest number of arcade-goers, since many dorm residents who normally went home for the weekend decided to stay at school to study. Street Fighter, Samurai Showdown, Mortal Kombat ... " The most popular games are easily the fighting ones, probably because they ' re empowering, " observed Chiao. Aside from the Jeremy Afuso power and control video games brought about, many played simply to relieve stress or to temporarily turn their minds away from their studies. As for the age-old question of why there were so many more males than females in the arcade population, one theory was that women are more practical or conservative with their money and didn ' t see the point of spending all their change on a game that lasts only a few minutes. Sunyee Wang, a second year business economics major, had her own reasons for visiting the arcade. " I went because my boyfriend was always there, but then 1 got caught up in the games too. Once you get hooked on the competition you can ' t stop because you want to beat the game and everyone else. " Be it for stress relief, empowerment, competition or no particular reason at all, many residents found the Villager Arcade an entertaining and worthwhile place to spend their time.

College life was not always so active for Robin. In her freshman and sophomore years, her only campus involvement was participating in the Academic Advancement Program (AAP). However, she eventually found her place in the Student Alumni Association (SAA). In SAA, Robin saw a chance to widen her college experience. In this organization, she became an important leader and organizer for many school functions. Robin felt her most important impact in SAA was the way she interacted and affected other people. " I want people to look at what I ' ve done and feel empowered to do even better, because that ' s how I ' ve learned to succeed, " said Robin. Robin felt her biggest accomplishment in SAA was her work for Spring Sing. While the annual show was under consideration for being cut from the SAA program, Robin took charge and through many late nights of work, helped save the show. Although Robins future plans are tentative, she knows she wants to take a " well deserved " year off and work at a small, rap based record label. After she saves enough money, she hopes to attend the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco to get a degree in the culinary arts.

During her years at UCLA, Sandra explored various majors including biology, psychology, anthropology, English, history, and finally history art history. Sandra also took classes abroad, visiting Czechoslovakia, Austria, England, Switzerland, and France. She also spent time at an advertising internship with the Kennedy Center in the nation ' s capital. Her many journeys were more than for intellectual and social betterment, but also for spiritual growth and exploration. At UCLA, Sandra participated in the Korean American Christian Fellowship for three years, which allowed her to " continue to grow in the Christian walk. " Of her many accomplishments, she is also proud of her seven years as a Sunday school teacher, where she had the opportunity to work with children. " I grew up in a very Christian atmosphere that was very closed off. When you get to college, you find out what you believe in, you explore, " said Sandra. In addition to being involved with church, Sandra also devoted much of her time to the arts. Some of her hobbies include singing, playing the flute and piano, and watching movies, musical theater, and symphonies. Sandra ' s immediate plans are to become involved with graphic design and or to attend a graduate school in education. Her future plans are more eclectic, ranging from owning a small cafe to becoming a cast member in " Miss Saigon. " According to Sandra, " I still think you can accomplish a lot in one lifetime.

IN ADDITION TO STUDYINC, art history and classical civilizations, Greg was involved in the UCLA Student Health Advocate (SHA) program for two years, the southern California HIV AIDS hotline, and the UCLA Conflict Mediation Program. He also served as the Scholarship Chair for the Mortar Board National Society, and as the co-chair ot the Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week during a campus-wide clothing drive for the Ocean Park Community Shelter in Santa Monica. This diversity of interests reflected what Greg believes to be the most valuable thing he learned from his college experience. From his activities at UCLA, Greg was able to form his own unique identity. " I grew up in a very sheltered and homogenous suburb of L.A., " said Greg. " By attending UCLA, my perceptions and beliefs were challenged by all the different people I met during my four years here. By exploring these differences, I was able to discover myself. " Even with all of Greg ' s extra-curricular and " soul-searching " activities, he still managed to keep his grades up. During his four years at UCLA, Greg made the Dean ' s Honors List for six quarters. Greg acknowledged his improved academic performance as his most notable achievement at UCLA. After graduation, Greg plans to work in a public relations firm or as a productions assistant in the entertainment industry before eventually entering law school.

To reach this goal, " It took nearly a decade, five colleges, several jobs, and a great deal of determination. " After being accepted as a transfer student, UCLA presented him with a myriad of opportunities to develop himself as a person and to enhance his knowledge of the world. As a student at UCLA, Bryan had the chance to participate in the many organizations offered on campus. Two of which he was most proud of were the UCLA Conflict Mediation Program (CMP) and the Special Olympics. While CMP taught him to appreciate diversity and to " to respect, to listen, to learn, " the Special Olympics showed him the strength of those with disabilities and adversity. Both programs allowed Bryan to become a better person by accepting everyone. Bryan holds great admiration for UCLA and its pursuits to provide the best education available for the students. With his UCLA education, he has been able to travel and broaden his horizons. " As the first student in the newly established European studies major, I have been able to survey courses across the campus and throughout Europe.

He became the Rush Chair in his freshman year and helped to quadruple the size of the house during his involvement in the I H, i fraternity. He fulfilled his devotion to the house by becoming president and continuing its growth and achievements. KLA was lucky to have Brett as a disc jockey for two years.

With his communications background, he obtained an internship through the EXPO center with the Executive Vice-President of Columbia Tri-Star Pictures. After leaving this internship, he worked with a company where he was able to help write a story that Columbia Pictures bought.

Marita received the Georgia Olefson Scholarship and the Helen Lane Two Year Merit Scholarship Marita appropriately cited her academic performance as her greatest achievement while at UCLA. Marita was also grateful for the " friendly " atmosphere of L1CLA. " Both the faculty and students at UCLA have always made me feel a part of them, " said Marita. " 1 have never felt like an outsider because of my age, something I feared would be the case ever since I returned to school Despite Marita ' s busv academic life, she still managed to spend quality time with her husband and children. However, the trade- off Marita was willing to make was not participating in extra-curricular activities at UCLA. " When I ' m not in school...! am busy picking my kids up from school, cooking dinner, helping them with their homework, and all of the other duties that go along with being a mother of two very active boys, " said Marita.

He graduated with a degree in psychology nd hopes to eventually obtain a Ph.D. in industrial organizational psychology. Michael was a member of the UCLA men ' s rugby team for four years. He held the position of captain his senior year ind enjoyed the team atmosphere rugby provided him with. in addition, he was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Taternity and served as the president his senior year, ichael feels that, " This has been one of the most important :xperiences of my life because it taught me the value of rganization and diplomacy when dealing with leadership isues. " Community service also played a large role in Michael ' s ' ears at UCLA. Every spring quarter he participated in Project SHARE, an inner city tutorial program for elementary school children. He also worked in the UCLA Health Education Department, developing an alcohol awareness program for the Greek system. What Michael considered his most notable achievement at UCLA was the psychology experiment he completed his senior year in which he tested the effects of social influence and power versus humor. In the experiment, he tested the effects of humor on influencing someone to do something they originally did not want to do. This work constituted a huge step towards the graduate level work he hopes to participate in the future. As Michael explains, " 1 am an average student with average grades, yet I have accomplished things that I never dreamed I would coming out of high school and I owe it all to the opportunities presented to me at UCLA.

" ' " ' 1 " Some students choose to come to UCLA for its academic reputation. Others want to come here because of the winning teams. This is understandable since UCLA ' s sports program is rated among the best in the nation. UCLA athletics provides both challenges for its athletes and exciting games for the fans. Being in the stands and absorbing the energy during a game is a welcome change from the stressful school year. Bruins find out this devotion extends long after graduation and remains throughout their lives. 265 FEATURE DEDICATED FAN By Anita Chu For over 25 years, Jeff Strand, a 1971 UCLA alumnus, has been cheering for the Bruins. As a season ticket holder for football and basketball, Strand attends almost every one of these games, plus ones in various other sports. Even with a wife, two kids, and a full time job, Strand finds time to support the Bruins. His devotion to the UCLA teams is a perfect example of a truly dedicated fan. In the late sixties, when Strand was an undergraduate at UCLA, love beads and protests proliferated on campuses all across the nation. During this time, the attitudes and widespread cynicism were not conducive to school spirit and college athletics. " As an undergraduate in the sixties to seventies, it was uncool to be a fan. Groups were out and individuals were in, " Strand commented. Cheerleading was seen as a political outlet, rather than a way to rouse the crowd. As the head cheerleader at UCLA, Strand wanted to revive this aspect of the sport , and stray from political chants. In 1975, Strand was asked to set up a fan section in order to elevate the energy of spectators in the stands. The fruits of his labor produced the Alumni Spirit Section, which " 7 " . now has its own cheering section ' . and a 120 member band. The goal of Strand and the other members of the organization was to make UCLA football games a fun affair for the whole family. " The main idea is to build UCLA spirit. So, we began the pre-game tailgate party by giving out free beer from a keg and handing out fliers to the crowds. It has become so big that we don ' t even need to advertise anymore, " Strand said. Today, Strand can be seen on a platform at football games, screaming out cheers and having an enthusiastic crowd follow his lead. His efforts have made sporting events a more exciting experience, one in which fans can have an active role. 266 SPORTS FANS Mike Muckertieide SPORTS FOOTBALL by rebecca winder FOOTBALL Opponent Score Tennessee Northeast Louisiana Michigan Oregon Arizona State Washington California Stanford Washington State Arizona use 20-35 444 9-38 41-22 3 42 21-41 38-29 20-21 38-14 17-35 IN I I PAC 10 RECORD Outside linebacker Danjuon Magee stuffs the opposition at the line of scrimmage Free Safety Shaun Williams takes down the Washington Stole Cougars. o one said it was going to be easy - especially new headcoach, Bob Toledo. Following in the footsteps of the winningest coach in Pac-10 history, Toledo was called upon to lead the Bruins into a new era. With a new system to learn and one of the hardest schedules in the nation, the Bruins faced their opponents with vigor and determination despite the air of uncertainty which surrounded the team. If there is one word that could describe the Bruin season, it would be inconsistnecy. Each week held something new as the young Bruings faught and scratched their way to a 5-6 record.

With Wide Receiver Jim McElroy steadily improving his game, the Bruins looked to him to be the " GO-TO " man in a pinch. Despite the ups and owns of this past season, the Bruins have created a strong basis for which to rebuild. Skip Hicks finished the season with 1,034 yards rushing and a Pac- 10 record of 20 touchdowns. Together with Jim McElroy, Hicks should provide an invaluable offensive threat in the future. The year also provided Toledo with valuable experience as he was forced to lead his team to some tough victories including a come-from-behind-double- overtime defeat of cross town rival use.

The secret of their success? The team ' s ability to land perhaps the best recruiting class in the nation, and the stability of all-star defensive leader, Senior stopper, Tahj Jakins. On the defensive end, Tahj Jakins controlled the opposing attack by shutting out his competi- tors. Hailed by Head Coach, Sigi Schmid, as " the best defender in the country, " Jakins was depended upon for his consistent, aggressive, and determined play. His maturity and experience anchored the team whose offensive attack called upon young, inexperienced Freshmen to pick up the rest of the slack left by last year ' s class of seniors. On the offensive end, a new five-man, mid- field rotation was utilized to make up for the loss of the last year ' s premier attackers. Emerging from the freshmen class with " superstar " zeal and the desire to win, Sasha Jenkins provided the Bruins with the early offensive it needed. However, as the mighty Bruins (10-4-5) clawed their way through their schedule and successfully defeated every opponent during league play, the bulk of their offensive threat came from forward, Seth George, and striker, Nick Theslof. As the MPSF Pacific Division Champs, the Bruins entered the tournament for the fourteenth con- secutive time to face Cal State Fullerton in the first round.

Both the women ' s and men ' s teams failed to qualify for the 1996 NCAA National Championships. The men ' s team was unable to keep up with the three top teams for an at-large bid. The women ' s team had a much better chance of such a bid if they had placed fourth, but were edged out by the University of Oregon 153-172. These perfor- mances were made all the more painful for the Bruins, considering that two weeks before, they placed third and fourth respectively, in the Pac- 10 championships. In that race junior Mebrahtom Keflezighi finshed first, shattering the course record by nineteen seconds. Keflezighi was the only individual to partcipate in the NCAA Championships, placing tenth over the 10,000m course. He went on to earn All-American honors for the third consecutive year. Freshman Kim Mortensen did well for the Bruins by taking second and leading the UCLA women to a fourth place finish in the Pac- 10 Division. Fortunately, the year did not end on a completely sour note. Most, if not all of this year ' s runners doubled as athletes in track and field, tra- ditionally a much stronger sport at UCLA.

Together, these seniors formed the core of the team, which focused on strength and experience to lead them back to the championships. Led by the confident and experienced Head Coach, Guy Baker, the Bruins had much to draw on as they aggressively defend- ed their MPSF and NCAA titles. Returning an over- whelming twelve of sixteen players, the Men ' s water polo team got off to a great start. However, the season on the whole, can best be characterized as a combination of peaks and valleys. Despite placing sixth in the MPSF conference and losing two of its last three games, the water polo mem- bers managed to shine at the NCAA Post- season Tournament, marking three consec- utive tournament appearances for Baker ' s Bruins. After defeating UC Davis in the semi-finals, the UCLA Bruins faced top-ranked USC in the championship game. Using the experience on which they built their season, the Bruins captured the title by beating rival USC.

Athletic Director Peter Dolis held a news conference in which he gave truth to the rumor that coach Jim Harrick was to be terminated. In his pbce, Steve Lavin was appointed interim head coach for the 96-97 by sue wichayanuparp On November 6, the UCLA community was stunned to hear the news of Jim Harrick ' s termination as head coach for the men ' s basketball team. The events leading to Harrick ' s dismissal involved a recruiting dinner at which Harrick allowed two returning members of the team to attend, without accompanying new recruits. Harrick ' s decision violated NCAA regulations, which state that each returning player be designated as a student host to only one prospective recruit. Harrick was also condemned by UCLA officials who investigated this matter. Apparently, Harrick did not include the names of the returning members on the dinner ' s expense reimbursement form, but substituted two other names instead. Reactions from the UCLA community on this matter were widespread and varied. Harrick ' s supporters believed that his removal as head coach was unjustified. There were even some who felt that Harrick ' s dismissal was based on more than just recruiting violations. " It seems suspicious that Jim Harrick would be fired over what seems like a minor event. I ' m sure there must be more behind this than we are being told, " remarked Wilfred Hsu, a first year graduate student in civil engineering. However, not all felt that Harrick ' s termination was unreasonable. Because Harrick Jeremy Afuso 284 SPORTS As of November 6, 1 996 it was announced that Jim Harrick would be terminated on the grounds of newly discovered NCAA recruitment violations. breached NCAA rules, and then misled officials into thinking otherwise, many agreed with how the situation was handled. " About his firing, I think it was warranted. He did disobey the rules, " stated first year English major, Kirra Steel. " Any violation has to be taken care of. " Aside from casting a shadow on the season ahead, the firing of coach Jim Harrick two weeks before the early signing period has also had negative effects on recruiting. Prior to Harrick ' s dismissal, the UCLA Bruins hoped to sign what was considered to be the Jeremy Afuso top recruiting class in the nation. Harrick ' s firing, coupled with UCLA ' s delay in hiring a new coach for the 97-98 season, compelled twins Jared and Jarron Collins to sign with Stanford. In addition, the nation ' s top recruit, Baron Davis, has yet to respond to UCLA ' s invitation to become a Bruin player. Furthermore, with such an unstable future ahead, UCLA ' s " trio of indecision " (J.R.

The high hopes for the 1997 season began to dis- appear as Steve Lavin, the 5th youngest Division I coach in the nation, replaced Jim Harrick as interim head coach. Relying heavily on fundamen- tals and heart, Lavin coached the team to suc- cess with his " one day at a time " attitude. Led by a " Trio of Seniors, " the Bruins ignored their less than stellar non-conference record to defend their Pac-10 title. The transformation of senior Charles O ' Bannon from inconsistent slam dunk specialist to dependable " go-to " guy gave the Bruins con- sistency as they battled through a rigorous conference schedule. While only missing two starts in his whole career, O ' Bannon led his team in both scoring and rebounding. Key games for Charles included the Cal game at the Cow Palace in which he grabbed a career high 1 6 boards and both of the games against Nation Champions Arizona in which his combined 50 points led the Bruins to two key victo- wuckerheide rics.

Junior guard Toby Bailey led the team in minutes as he moved back to the No. 2 position and continued a string of consecutive starts dating back to his freshman year. Junior forward J.R. Henderson, whose versatility and finesse with the balll became an inte- gral part of the game, smoothed over some rough spots with the new coach to become a key part of the offense. Also adding some valuable playing time were junior Kris Johnson and sophomore Brandon Loyd. Johnson ' s moves down low, quick first step, and free throws down the stretch became pivotal in close games. Loyd was looked to blister the nets with his three point shooting ability. As the Bruins danced into the madness of March, they rolled past Charleston Southern and defeated a fiesty Xavier squad with a come from behind performance to go to the Sweet Sixteen. Dollar led the team to the Elite Eight with another full court dash as time ran out against Iowa State. Unfortunately, the Minnesota Gophers outmanned the gutsy Bruins and ended dreams of the Final Four. Earning himself a four year contract, Lavin instilled discipline, patience, and pride in Bruin basketball. Although they did not earn the crown, they learned the fundamentals of basketball and life. Lavin claims, " What we Ve learned about each other, about the basketball family, about how life is a lot more than this game or the score or whether we go to the Final Four. It ' s a special experience when you overcome and go through the things that we went through and really that ' s what college basketball is all about.

Unfortunately for the UCLA Women ' s Basketball team, this statement has been all too true. Prior to the start of the season, freshman Takiyah Jackson injured her knee and thereby, became inactive for the rest of the season. Expectations for t he ' dynamic duo ' , Jackson and Erica Gomez, were postponed for a full year. There was hope as the 1996-1997 season began that Jackson would team up with Gomez, Pac-10 Freshman of the Year, to form a powerful back court tandem and possi- bly challenge perennial power- house Stanford for the Pac-10 title. As Jackson recuperated, Gomez also injured her knee during the pre-season. Consequently, the Bruins were forced to face a rigorous schedule and to find someone to step into the shoes which Gomez vacated.

Included among the accolades for the Bruin program are two NCAA titles, four Dual Meet titles and eight Pac-10 crowns, the last five in consecutive years. Despite losing a wealth of talent from last year ' s squad, the Bruins matched the success of the past. One way the team overcame the obstacle of such a tremendous loss of talent was to recruit a fine class of fresh- men. Rated third in the U.S., this year ' s recruiting class fea- tured three top athletes - 800m runner Michael Granville, sprinter Damien Allen, and discus performer Lance Jauron. Expected to pick up the slack left by the graduation of the seniors, six returning All-Americans used their experi- ence and dedication to match the success of the past. Leading the pack were throwers senior David Dumble, junior Josh Johnson, and sophomore Travis Haynes. Also included among this group were distance runner Mebrahtom Keflezighi, vaulter Scott Slover, and sprinter Akil Davis. Junior transfer Mark Hauser rounded out the Bruin All-Americans lending depth as a distance runner. In addition, a healthy Ibrahim Hassan showcased his talents in the 200m and 400m races. Likewise, Bruin return- ers, junior hurdler Gerimi Burleigh, junior high jumper Rich Pitchford, and junior triple jumper Mel Moultry duplicated their personal successes from last year. With such assets, the 1997 Track and Field Team met opponents with determination and confidence.

Head Coach Gary Adams had just the right combination of power and touch, desire and want, experience and youth to take his team " all the way. " The Bruins were dominant on offense with the power of junior third baseman Troy Glaus. Glaus brought with him a wealth of expe- rience from the US Olympic Team, as he and seven other starters returned to the team this year. Joining Glaus as both an Olympian and a Bruin, junior pitcher Jim Parque led the pitching staff. Glaus ' presence was also a valuable addition to last year ' s win leaders, junior Peter Zamora and sophomore Dan Keller. Although the team struggled defensively last season, this year proved different. In the out- field, senior left-fielder Jon Heinrichs, sophomore center-fielder Eric Valent, and junior right-fielder Eric Byrnes anchored the defense. All three were starting for the second year in a row. On offense, the Bruins had power on their side. Glaus, Valent, Byrnes, and Zamora were the four men in the middle of the lineup who together combined for 42 home-runs last year. At the midpoint of the season this year, the Bruins were on track to hit well past the marks of last season. Adams ' strong batting lineup posed a strong threat to opposing pitch- ers - With such a formidable batting lineup, improved defense, and a strong pitching staff, the Bruins had the " all " to achieve their goal of a National Championship. With a preseason 2 national ranking and a solid start, the Bruins are well on their way to the College World Series.

With the return of experienced seniors, the talent of several outstanding freshmen, and the supervision of head coach Sue Enquist, the team was able to prove their power and strength on the field. Early in the season, they dropped 3 of 4 non-conference games. The Bruins suffered losses to both FSU and CSULB. Nevertheless, the team demon- strated that it still possessed championship qualities when it later compiled a 21 -game winning streak and knocked off No. 1 Arizona for the first time in two years. " We are starting to play with more authority and confidence, " remarked Coach Enquist. Integral to the Softball team ' s success were seniors Alleah Poulson and B ' Ann Burns. Poulson, a two time All American, returned to her position at first base. Burns also provided strength to the team with impressive pitching, ranking among the top ten in four career pitching categories. In addition, two fresh- men helped cinch Bruin wins. Courtney Dale was the top all around prospect in the nation, demonstrating her value on the pitching mound and in the out- field during her first year at UCLA. Christa Williams came to the team as the top pitching recruit in the nation, as well as a member of the 1996 gold medal US Olympic team.

Head Coach Billy Martin wit- nessed his Bruins upset by Stanford, with the team having to settle for the runner-up posi- tion. Despite losing key players Justin Gimelstob and Srdjan Muskatirovic, the Men ' s Tennis team earned a No. 2 ranking and coasted through much of the early competition. In their place, Eric Taino has taken the leadership position of the team. He posted a 22-5 dual match record at the No. 3 singles slot last year. The additions to the 1996-97 team include the top junior players in the country: Kevin Kim, Alex Decret, and Jason Cook. Unphased by an early upset to Boise State, the Bruins made short work of their other competition, including Cal Poly SLO, San Diego State, Irvine, and UNLV. Most significantly, they shut out the Pepperdine Waves, who are traditional- ly a fierce competitor. National champi- onship dreams were in the eyes of the Men ' s Tennis team from the start of the season. The only real com- petition left for the Bruins was their old nemesis Stanford who was ranked above UCLA. The Bruins had a huge ace up their sleeve in hosting the event, but would it be enough to defeat the Stanford Cardinals? Only time will tell.

Six Bruins competed in the Pac-10 Indoor Championships in preparation for the start of the 1997 season. The team ' s win over Washington State in their first dual match foreshadowed the spirit, intensity and hard work throughout the remain- der of the season.

In the San Diego tournament the Bruins competed with four of the nation ' s top twenty teams and placed eleventh. Again Brandon DiTullio led the team with three finishes in the top ten. The women ' s golf team faced the same obstacles as the men ' s team. Despite their inconsistent start, the team came together as the season progressed. They placed second in the Regional Challenge and third in the Pioneer Electrics Bruin Classic. The team was led by Sophie Sandolo, a recent transfer from France. She finished fourth at the Regional tournament and third at the Bruin Classic. Also a strong player, junior Amandine Vincent tied for third with Sandolo at the tournament.

Your personalities just seem to click, and it seems your friendship has existed for years. Immediately, there is a sense of trust and sincerity. And a feeling of closeness develops instantly. Once in a while, somebody special comes into your life, and right away you know you have found a friend. Even after parting, this friend leaves such an impression that from time to time, for no reason, you think of that friend, and it makes you happy. Seniors, we are so proud of you. May you be successful in every avenue you choose. The Sisters of Tri-Delta " If it hurts you to look back, frightens you to look ahead, Then just look beside you... I ' ll be there. " I ' d like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me. I ' d like to be the help that you have always been glad to be. I ' d like to mean as much to you each minute of the day as you have meant old friend of mine to me along the way. -Edgar A Guest There is something in your friendship very sweet for rainy days- Tis your thoughtfulness in finding what I like in little ways, And of doing, one by one, things others leave undone. There is something in your friendship sane strong And glad and true which makes better everything I have to do. And your friendly word smile somehow make life worthwhile. There is something in your friendship very rare to find, my friend Tis unselfishness is giving without stint without end. So there it is. 340 GREEKS If I had given you any parting advice it would have been comprised in this one sentence: to live up always to the best and highest you know. A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you today just the way you are. " My friend, if I could give you one thing, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you, then you would realize what a truly special person you are. " Barbara A. Billings When we forget ourselves, we usually do something that everybody else remembers. " A memory is a photograph taken by the heart to make a special moment last forever. And of all the memory pictures that happy times have brought, my favorites are the ones we ' ve made together.

Presently, home is a modestly furnished single fl apartment 1 share with my partner of one year, Aisha L B Davis. It is where we wake up every morning, where we screen our telephone calls, where we disagree, where we make up. It is where we order out and have ice-cream for breakfast. Home is where the dishes are neglected, the television is abused, and the freezer needs defrosting. When I was a child, home was anywhere my parents were. It was a roof over my head, whether that meant living with others or just my immediate family. Home was any one of the three grandmothers ' houses, a two bedroom apartment in LA, a bedroom in Compton, staying with friends in Las Vegas, or sharing a living room with my brother in Moreno Valley. When I was in high school and just coming out, home was the two-story, three-bedroom house I shared with my parents HOME and younger brother, Quinn. It was where showers were taken before 8:00 pm and clothes were ironed for the week. It was where there was a television in every room, and (sometimes) little or no food in the kitchen. Home was where I learned the realities about racism, unemployment, adultery, survival. It was where I learned that I am better than no one and no one is better than me. It was where I learned how to love, how to dream, how to believe in the true blessing of HOPE. Home is where I told my mom I was a lesbian, where we fought about it, where I couldn ' t wait to get away from so I could make a home of my own. Idealistically, when I think of the word " home, " I think of a place where people love, nurture, understand, and support one another without qualms. I think of the Luther Vandross song released in the early 80s, " A House Is Not A Home. " In it, he bu s 422 argues that one can never have a home without there first being love. I agree. What is anything without love? The love that Aisha and 1 have for one another enabled us to make the tough, but inevitable, decision to not go home to our respective families this holiday season. We did not go home to her parents because I am not welcome in their house. Because of their refusal to accept our relationship, for the first time in nineteen years, they did not spend the holidays with their only child. We chose not to go home to my parents for similar reasons. My parents continue to make progress towards accepting us as a couple but are still not quite there. In a very honest, two hour phone conversation 1 had with my mother, she told me that if Aisha and I were to come to the house we would have to sleep in separate rooms, because otherwise she would feel uncomfortable. Of course I was insulted. I know if the situation were reversed and my brother brought home his girlfriend of over a year home, my mother would not say the same thing. So instead of compromising, Aisha and I decided to spend the holidays in our single apartment, our home. We started playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving. I was so excited about the prospect of spending our first Christmas together that I finished shopping three weeks before the actual holiday. I eventually convinced Aisha to exchange gifts on the 15th of December. On Christmas day, we saw The People vs. Larry Flynt and The Evening Star . After that, we spent the rest of the day just enjoying each other ' s company. After the holidays, during the week between December 26th and January 1st, we celebrated our first Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is a seven day celebration of African-American culture. Each day, a different principle is celebrated. A candle is lit and a prayer is said for each principle. We were fortunate enough to have my younger brother stay with us for a few days during Kwanzaa. On the last day of the holiday, Aisha, my brother, and I celebrated the principle Imani (faith). When one celebrates Imani, one is honoring and remembering our history, our parents, and our leaders. We also speak of having faith within ourselves, so that we can develop into useful men and women. I am grateful to have brought in the new year and celebrated the last night of Kwanzaa with two of the most important people in my life: my brother and my woman. As a community, gay les bi trans people reach out to each other for support, creating our own families and our own homes. There are times when I walk on campus or in Westwood and my " gaydar " is constantly going off. Armed with our " gaydar, " my friends and I point people out who we guess are " family. " We use the word " family " to mean that we share a commonalty based on our sexual orientation. I don ' t think it is just a coincidence that members of " the family " have continued to support and nurture Aisha and I in our times of need. I am very proud of the home that Aisha and I have made for ourselves. It is where honesty, trust, and respect are valued and expected. It is where continue to learn about each other and grow as human beings. It is where we ' ve decorated the walls with paintings, posters, personal artwork, and the floors with newspapers, dirty socks and CDs. Be it ever so humble . . . there ' s no place like home. 423 ith one sweeping signature on August 22, 1996, President Clinton unraveled a major piece of the federal social safety net by cutting Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) and allowing states to enact their own welfare programs. Vera Juarez, a single mother, and her four children are among the millions of women and children affected by the new law. Vera is an on-again, off-again welfare recipient for the past seven years. Surpassing the five-year lifetime limit the new law dictates, Vera foresees herself being cut from the system. She counts herself as one of the luckier recipients who receive welfare to supplement her full time job. Still, Vera ' s dependency on AFDC jeopardizes her ability to provide adequate shelter, clothing, and food for her children. While there are provisions that mandate assistance to mothers like Vera, there is no guarantee that states will implement them. The reductions in welfare spending, amounting to $60 billion, will be phased over a period of five years. The total net reduction of funds when the law is fully implemented will reduce the current AFDC budget by forty percent. The impact of these cuts seem drastic for the following reasons: In California 2.6 million children are currently on AFDQ In Los Angeles County alone 670,000 children are currently on AFDC,- nearly a third of California ' s children live in poverty. With the law fully implemented, forty percent of these children will be ineligible for federal assistance. According to Dr. Duncan Lindsey, a specialist in child welfare issues at UCLA ' s School of Public Policy and Social Research, this law will affect California more severely than other regions in the county due to the already large number of children living below the poverty line. Statistics cited by Lindsey reveal most of the children living in poverty are African-American and Latino and are greatly over represented in AFDC. " In this state [poverty] sort of breaks down on color lines, " said Lindsey. Of the children added to AFDC in 1992, forty-four percent were Latinos. The foster care community will also feel the consequences to children thrust into greater depths of poverty through the reduction of AFDC. More than two thirds of the children in foster care come from families receiving AFDC. Since 1990, the number of children under the protection of the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has rocketed from 45,000 to the current 70,000 children. Of these children, approximately thirty percent are Latino. Schyler Sprowles, Director of Public Affairs at DCFS, predicts his department will see an increase in their steady stream of clients. Though children in the protective system will still receive federal money, Sprowles believes the number of child abuse cases will also rise as a result of he new law. Therefore, DCFS is preparing for larger case loads. According to Sprowles, the passage of the law will have negative consequences on children because of the economic hardships that will be placed on already poor families. " As the economy deteriorates, families deteriorate. The stress and dysfunction of a bleak financial picture will be borne on the children, " Sprowles added. Dr. Lindsey further suggests that the creation of a universal system of financial assistance, similar to social security, might be beneficial. Unlike the current residual system which only helps children when they are already mired in poverty, this universal system would help all children regardless of need and provide opportunity from the beginning. As for the future, Lindsey concluded, " What are we doing for these kids ' futures? We ' re building prisons and locking people up. And we may have to continue doing that if we don ' t provide access to opportunity. " Still, Lindsey is cautiously optimistic about the future and believes that one of the benefits arising from the new law will be finding the true needs of these children. As for Vera, she remains resilient and optimistic that she and her children will manage to survive despite any AFDC cuts. However, she painfully concedes, only as a last resort, would she give up her children for adoption if she is unable to take care of them. Vera remarked, " I ' m not really worried about myself. To tell you the truth, I think I ' m going to be just fine. What about those other people who aren ' t going to be fine? Those are the ones that I ' m thinking about. Because I ' m just not thinking about myself. I ' m thinking about everybody. " " What are we doing for these kids ' futures? We ' re building prisons and locking people up. And we may have to continue doing that if we don ' t provide access to opportunity. " 424 STORY BY ZENIA PARK Angela Davis has been an ardent political activist since the 1950s. In 1969 Davis was fired from her job as an assistant professor of philosophy at UCLA when she vocalized her support for the Soledad Brothers, three inmates who were accused of killing a prison guard. Due to such actions, as well as her controversial political beliefs (Davis was a member of the Communist Party), and the political unrest of the times, Davis was fired by the UC Regents. She was reinstated, but was ultimately dismissed from her position in June 1970. Don Kalish, then the chair of the philosophy department at UCLA, said that " [Davis ' firing] was a disgrace purely politically motivated with nothing to do with her merits. " Today, as professor of " History of Consciousness " and the presidential chair of African American and feminist studies at UC Santa Cruz, Davis remains politically active. During Fall quarter, Davis spoke in Westwood Plaza on " Affirmative Action and the Struggle for Social Justice. " Davis ' speech expressed her views on such topics as Prop I r 209, affirmative action, prisons, " presidential candidates, and the involvement of today ' s youth in political activism. B V B ' " ' " ' ' ' " sl outdoor ft rally at UCLA since 1970, I Davis thanked the crowd for H attending in numbers reminiscent of rallies of the " old days. " Beginning by asking how many in the audience were going to vote against or in favor of Prop 209, she urged those in the crowd to " drop everything in order to do the work that will guarantee that we will make it past election day with some kind of hope for the future " by " figuring] out a way to increase the number of people who will vote against 209, because if people really knew what this is about, they would vote against it. " Davis proceeded to warn that if Prop 209 passes, it will " create [a] climate that allows sexism and racism to grow on very fertile grounds. " Davis reminded the audience that " for those of us who 20, 30 years ago were challenging police crimes, calling for Chicano Studies, Black Studies, Native American Studies, Asian American Studies, Women ' s Studies Programs we were demanding that the generation doors of institutions be open to all. What I think that we need to learn from those past histories is that we can never take anything for granted... women ' s studies programs, ethnic studies programs, resource centers all these programs stand to be disestablished if Proposition 209 passes. We can never assume that the victories that we win are etched in stone. " Davis refuted the myth that people of color are often persuaded to oppose affirmative action, since it connotes that they may be somewhat " inferior " and may need aid in gaining admittance to universities or select jobs. She strongly argued that affirmative action should not be regarded exclusively as a program aimed at a certain type of person. Davis was also well-versed in relating her political views. A member of the Green Party, Davis expressed support for Clinton, but cautioned that " the progressives aren ' t so progressive, but almost conservative. " Davis feels it is important to challenge Clinton ' s conservative leanings, including his anti-immigrant stance, and his support for the " Defense of Marriage " and " Prison Expansion " bills. To ameliorate this conservative backlash, Davis urged listeners to " take advantage of moments when we feel emotionally high and do something. I ' ve been in this struggle for a long time. I mean, since the 1950s! That ' s like 40 some years and I am not going to give up! 1 am not going to give up! I am not going to give up! But what I do know is that younger people need to move out in front nowadays and take the initiative to do the kind of organizing that will lead us across the next millennium. What I ' m going to suggest is, for the purpose of these next nineteen days,... that we consider ourselves as a part of a vast movement. ..and do the work that we really ought to be doing.... [Let us] move in a proactive direction. " The work of Davis and the political activists who came before her have forged a path for those willing to follow Davis cautioned however, that young adults today should " demystify the generation of people that [they] sort of revere as activists " before getting involved in activism. " A lot of people have come up to me today and told me how much I mean to them. And I mean, that ' s fine, I ' m glad about that but it ' s not about a person. It ' s not about me at all. It ' s about the work that we all did. And that needs to be taken up by [the young activists ' ] generation, " reason ed Davis. The struggles for social justice now rest squarely on the shoulders of our generation. Let us begin the work. 427 ACCESS The Constitution does not explicitly mention any right to privacy. In many court decisions, however, the right to privacy under the Constitution has been recognized. The right to privacy, whether it ' s legitimacy is based upon the Fourteenth Amendment ' s restrictions on state action, or in the Ninth Amendment ' s reservation of rights to the people, is broad enough to encompass a woman ' s decision to terminate her pregnancy. Women won the inalienable right to choose an abortion in the 1973 Supreme Court ruling of Roe vs. Wade. In the twenty-fourth anniversary year of Roe vs. Wade, however, we have little to commemorate, as both state and federal laws increasingly reflect the conservative right. Within the past two years, Congress has approved legislation which has benefited anti-choice movement. These measures include denying abortion access to overseas servicewomen in military hospitals, women in federal prisons, and women patients in medical facilities owned or operated by the District of Columbia. Medical insurance coverage for federal employees is ENTENC also denied in cases of abortion. The only abortions allowed by most of the new laws are pregnancies resulting from rape and or incest or pregnancies which endanger the life of the mother. In addition, most states have expanded their role in regulating abortions by passing bills which make it almost impossible for a woman to exercise her right to choose. For example, Ohio has made the " dilation and extraction " procedure a felony offense. Pennsylvania provides funding for non-profit, anti-abortion agencies In Mississippi, due to a mandatory waiting period implemented after 1992, the number of women receiving abortions after the first trimester increased by seventeen percent. The American Medical Association (AMA) concluded that these mandatory waiting periods increased the risk associated with the abortion procedure. Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, and South Dakota threaten to outlaw abortion if Roe vs. Wade is ever overturned. Arizona, Missouri, Nevada, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania have voiced their intentions to regulate abortion as much as is constitutionally possible. Although state funding for abortions is available, fewer than twenty states provide public funding for abortions. In most states, public funding is distributed only when the pregnancy is the result of rape and or incest, or if the pregnancy poses a serious threat to the health of the woman. The absence of federal funding for abortions will almost certainly take away any choice available to low- income women. The lack of public funding forces most low-income women to prolong unwanted pregnancies until they are able to come up with the money for an abortion. Low-income women must either bear an unwanted child, delay the abortion, or have the abortion illegally. The state has also failed to adequately grant abortion rights to minors. Oftentimes, a pregnant teen simply cannot turn to her family for guidance and support. For example, a few years ago, a thirteen year-old girl from Idaho was shot by her father after he learned that she intended to abort an HO CE incest-induced pregnancy. Many minors will do anything to avoid parental involvement. Minors have even " escaped " to states where parental consent is not mandatory. In the face of such drastic and potentially dangerous measures, mandatory parental consent has definite drawbacks. Mandated parental consent can result in family conflicts, illegal or delayed abortions, or the birth of an unwanted child. In fact, teens are more likely to die from childbirth than from a first- trimester abortion. " [Mandated parental consent may drive minors to] run away from home, obtain a ' back alley ' abortion, or resort to Story By Cynthia Arntzen Photography by iiike Muckerheide self-induced abortion. The desire to maintain secrecy has Photo illustration by been one of the leading reasons for illegal abortion deaths, " Han PhaE reported the AMA. Essentially, the restrictions recently imposed on abortions deny women a fundamental, constitutional right, namely the right to freedom of choice. 429 Teacher Anthony Jackson ' s second grade classroom looks like any other elementary classroom. Closets are plastered with children ' s artwork, a full library crowds one corner, and a poster displaying team names and points hangs on another wall. And then there are the subtleties - the voices of the children reading about the Sanchez family and other ethnically and structurally diverse families, five Apple computers line one wall, juxtaposed against the children ' s work on their own Flossie the Fox storybooks, and the pocket chart comparing African-American Vernacular English with Mainstream English that stands propped up in another corner. The main difference: the Language Development Program for African- American Students is used here. " Ebonics " was one of the most controversial issues this year. The debate began on December 18, 1996, when the Oakland School Board decided to officially recognize the " language " spoken by African-Americans as Black English or African-American Vernacular English (AAVE). This decision propelled the Ebonics issue into public scrutiny, gaining nationwide attention and fervent arguments from both sides. While AAVE has been an issue covered in the intellectual arena for decades, it has just recently surfaced in political debate. In the climate of Propositions 187, 209, and English only laws, Ebonics seemed like another topic to add to the ethnic and racial relations in political discourse. The main argument of the opponents of Ebonics is the assertion that Black English is not a true language. Many feel that Black speech is just a form of broken English or slang. " I, as a linguist, know that it is not a genetic language. In contrast, it is a dialect. For most African Americans, in a social situation it is easy to speak the vernacular form of African -American English, " said Dr. Marcyliena Morgan, a linguistic professor at UCLA. In addition, some critics think the suggestion that Ebonics, as a legitimate language in the school system, is just a manipulative way to attain more money for their budget by adding language programs. Advocates of the Oakland decision believe Ebonics is not only a justifiable language but also has positive effects in our children ' s classrooms. In response to the controversy of the definition of language, the Linguistics Society of America scientifically studied the issue, and resolved that the African-American Vernacular English is " linguistically and pedagogically sound. " Ethnolinguists claim that AAVE can be considered as a dialect of English, where both share the same vocabulary while having different phonology, morphology, and syntax. Secondly, those for the implementation of Ebonics in the school system say it is beneficial to students. The Oakland School Board ' s most important goal of accepting Ebonics is " to help [students] master mainstream English while maintaining, not eradicating, their home language, " said Anthony Jackson, a second grade teacher at 99th Street School in Compton, California. Implementing a " bidialectical approach, " Jackson and his colleagues at the elementary school have used AAVE in their teaching in their Language Development Program for African-Americans. By embracing Ebonics into the school system, students do not have to believe what they commonly use for speaking is an inappropriate form of English. By adding their home language as a bridge to learn Standard English, children can understand the structural differences between the two and have the foundation to master the mainstream language. Empowering the children to take responsibility for their education through creative projects such as producing their own version of Flossit the Fox, a folktale written in AAVE, gives them a special pride and self-esteem that would otherwise be erased if their home language was ignored in the classroom. " I wonder how many of the potential Zora Neale Hurstons, Maya Angelous, and Toni Morrisons among them will be stifled by an educational system that regards the language of their homes and communities as something to be ashamed of instead of cherished, " said Jackson. Ebonics manifests varying levels of issues and social aspects to regard. Its complexity stems from the racial, class, and economic inequalities between Americans. Even within the African-American community there is stigma attached to both those who utilize AAVE and those who have become proficient in Standard English. Such widespread debate on Ebonics have only complicated the passing of any legislation. Debate about Ebonics continues to muster a great deal of attention as the proposal moves from local to state examination. While both sides have their opinions, the real dilemma is the uncertainty about what is best for the children. Needless to Second graders Joroi and Olga read from Teacher Anthony Jocbon works closely with the children during their their multicultural social studies textbook. The reading exercises.
