UofA Desert Yeartxxik August 1994 was a month plagued with dilem- mas stretching from Cuba to campus. While Cuban refugees filled the seas in an attempt to reach Florida in a mass exodus, the mon- soons hit Tucson with a fe- rocious blow. Then things heated up when a fire in the dorms started off the Uni- versity of Arizona school year. Fidel Castro opened his doors in August to any Cu- bans who attempted to migrate to the United States. In 1980, during the cold war, Castro opened his pris- ons and over 125,000 Cu- bans came to Florida and were accepted into the United States. Castro ' s rea- soning behind letting Cu- bans flee was to open talks about lifting the U.S. eco- nomic embargo. In the meantime, Cuban families fled to the United States in wooden rafts. The amount of Cuban refugees has risen from 248 in January ' 94 to 2,223 as of August 17. Since, the 19th of August at least 9,000 refugees were picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard on route into Florida. In the meantime, Tuc- son was hit by winds blow- ing over 75 miles per hour. It tore the roofs off 12 homes, destroyed three mobile homes, uprooted trees, and flooded the streets. It also hit campus hard, tearing the roof off Old Main, knocking down steel fences, and broke win- dows in the dorms flooding them. Uprooted trees on campus alone caused $40,000 in damage. There were also severe lightning storms causing two firefighters to be injured. The monsoons hit during the week of August 23, two days before campus was to open for fall session. On the first day of classes sev- eral building were still flooded. The storm came as a surprise after a long hot summer, that encompassed twenty days with tempera- tures over 100 degrees. However, the storm did not cool things off enough. On August 23 a fire broke out in Coronado dormitory. This blaze was caused by a hot lamp falling onto the bed of a student while she was sleeping. It was extin- guished by a maintenance mechanic. The fire caused heavy damages to the room. The student had to be hos- pitalized and treated for smoke inhalation and mi- nor bums to her hands and face. Despite all the devasta- tion that this month brought on, students still managed to swarm to classes on time. Page A4 1 994-95 University of Arizona Desert LoUa Jamming!

Photo by Owen Mrirtin Every time Lollapalooza tours, it makes a stop in the sweltering August heat of Phoenix. The 1994 edition of Lx)llapalooza managed to bring a refreshing blast of diverse, contemporary music to the masses. It was quite difficult to get comfortable to see the opening band. Green Day, play. After the sun settled a bit, people slithered out of their air-con- ditioned cars to hear L7 blar- ing over the walls of the pavil- ion. This all-girl band blasted a wave of punk metal music, which unfortunately seemed to flag in the middle of their set. Trailing L7, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds introduced their blend of British rock beat. The crowd seemed to not ap- preciate the rhythm and marched in droves to the food stands. During the Breeders, the crowd ' s spirit didn ' t seem to be lifted in spite of the philosophies of a drag queen and odes of liberal femme-nazis. The crowd came out of the food tents once George Clinton ' s band began to play and were enlivened by the rap rhythm. The crowd became more viva- cious as the hip-hop rap beat of Beastie Boys came on. The musical fiesta ended with Smashing Pumpkins, whose " grunge " sound left the audi- ence looking forward to Lollapalooza 1995. .z: Page A6 Naked protestor says. 1 994-95 University of Arizona Desert Nude is September 24, San Francisco, California.

By LUPE EAMON UofA Desert Yeartxx k Tucson, AZ- The Gospel of Thomas quotes Jesus as saying " When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children, then you will see the son of the Liv- ing One. " Although most people have never heard of this particular book, Bruce Friedemann, the infamous " naked protestor " put great stake in it. Friedemann, a 38 year-old Tucsonan, took it upon himself to spread the unknown gospel to the clothed multitude. The sunny Monday af- ternoon of the 19th wit- nessed his protest of Arizona ' s state indecency law on the mall. Friedemann displayed, among other things, signs with quotes from the court case State v. Gates which dealt with the boundaries between nude and lewd, and the Gospel of Thomas, a " book written a long time ago not canonized by the church. " However it was not so much what he said as how he said it. His in the buff demonstration at- tracted the attention of passer-bys, police, and the press. Friedemann had a his- tory of voicing his political and moral views on cam- pus. He cau.sed quite a disturbance in front of the Main Library in April 1 986, yelling " President Reagan is Satan " and distributing political fliers. The UAPD was informed and reported to the scene. He was re- ported as displaying a bel- ligerent attitude towards the police and calling upon the First Amendment right of freedom of speech. For- mal charges were later brought against him by two students which forcibly re- moved him from campus. No formal complaints were filed in the event of the nude protest. However, after the Wildcat ran a front page photo of Friedemann which displayed frontal nudity, the protestor offered his own objections. In a letter to the editor, he criti- cized the article as " poorly written, " and making him look like " a crazy, stupid troublemaker. " The photo, according to Friedemann, showed that he had " no pubic hair and a very small penis. " In response, a barrage of letters were sent to the Wildcat criticizing the pro- testor and his views on nu- dity, decency, politics and money. Although the ac- tual protest garnered little response in person, print was another matter. Weeks later the editors asked, " Please, no more ' naked protestor letters.

" Ah, but never fear. Sun Devils, it ' s only two games in a row (so far). Friday, November 25th ' s annual clash of intrastate ri- vals was supposed to be ASU ' s chance to knock Ari- zona out of the Rose Bowl for once. But since Oregon took care of that on October 29 at Eugene, the Sun Devils came into Tucson looking to settle for an old fashion whuppin ' and for awhile, it looked like they would leave Tucson satisfied. However, a missed field goal by Arizona State kicker Jon Baker in the closing minute of the game sealed a 28-27 victory for the Wild- cats. So what did the one point margin do to fuel the rivalry? Absolutely nothing, because, like most intrastate rivalries, the so-called fire is damn near an inferno, just ask.

' h By LUPE EAMON UoTA Desert Yeartxiok Port-au-Prince, Haiti- Tension began rising through the early half of September. The United States poised itself for the heavily debated strike against Haiti ' s de facto Jonassaint government. Since the ousting of ex- president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the pressure for and against the invasion be- came more and more strenuous. A decision was close at had. By mid-month fifteen American warships and air- craft carriers patrolled the coast of the island nation as a constant reminder of the possible invasion. Low- flying planes spread pro- Aristide propag anda fliers and helicopters took regu- lar flight over the capitol. Local Haitian military ef- forts also escalated, threat- ening Aristide supporters. In a speech the next day, September 15th, Clinton at long last offered an ultima- tum to the military leaders of Haiti: " Leave now or we will force you from power. " The response was a vow form the de facto rulers such as Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras - - to fight any invasion no matter how strong . The public reaction to Clinton ' s ultimatum was mixed but tended to lean towards the negative. " I don ' t know why we are going to jeop- ardize American lives here, " said University of Arizona political science professor Thomas Volgy. There were also questions raised about the motives for the invasion and why Haiti should be invaded but not others. " There are a num- ber of countries where we have a disagreement with the legitimacy of the gov- ernment, " said Volgy. The final decision be- came reality Monday, the 19th, when American troops landed in the Hai- tian capital Port-au-Prince. Charlie Company of the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Regiment of the Army ' s 10th Moun- tain Division, the spearhead troops of the invasion, seized control of the air- port. Days later troops took control of the city hall and Parliament building. Once established, U.S. troops as- sumed the role of police and keepers of the peace. In the attempt to decrease the number of arms in the hands of Haitians U.S. of- ficials offered up to $300 for weapons. The month ended with the steady peace keeping efforts of U.S. forces in the still shaky situation. With most Jonassaint supporters still at large, the mission was still up in the air. Had peace finally come to Haiti? ± prin Hits campus during Spring Fling weekend BylMANATIYEH UofA Desert Yearbook With rides that went over eighty miles per hour, food from all over the world, and music from local and famous bands. Spring Fling was filled with excitement. Despite an increase in prices this year, the largest student run carnival attracted many. " Some of those rides looked so crazy, I wouldn ' t try them. I went on the Force G and that went so fast my face was pulled back, " jun- ior Julie Johnson said. RUN DMC, who liv- ened up the large crowd that assembled for their concert with songs like " Mary, why you buggin " and " Walk this way " , and Sandra Bemhard headlined the entertainment. " She [Bemhard] was not very funny, but I was im- pressed with her singing, " junior James Donom said. Other students, though, were busy working Spring Fling rather than attending. " I liked working at Spring Fling because it gave me an opportunity to meet a lot of new people, and I learned how to deal with a lot of responsibility, " Com- munication Director Steve Olson, who was in charge of communicating with sur- rounding neighborhoods and dealing with com- plaints, said.

PageAU 1 994-95 University of Arizona Desert H Provost Takes a By LUPE EAMON UofA Desert Yearbook Tucson, AZ- The morning of the 26th began peacefully with the quiet announcement of Provost Paul Sypherd ' s new under- graduate core curriculum proposal. " Core curricu- lum in works, " read the headline of the W Wcaf. His new " user friendly " idea of three required general undergrad classes met seri- ous disapproval from fac- ulty. However, in the man- ner that all were to find as normal, Sypherd disre- garded their objections. While many were still reeling from the announce- ment, Sypherd made pub- lic another drastic change. In a long anticipated move, Sypherd gave journalism and statistics departments their walking papers. Un- der his recommendation to President Pacheco, the de- partment would be phased out with the last students graduating in May 1998. When justifying his ac- tion Sypherd said, " The department is redundant with others in the state, few students acquire jobs in the media and the program is too vocationally oriented to be commensurate with a research institution. " He said he planed to work with journalism professors to establish an interdiscipli- nary program which will enable students to take a couple journalism classes within another major. As for the value of one of the new interdisciplinary program, Sypherd admit- ted that a degree of this sort would not be accredited. Stephen Auslander, editor in chief of the Ar zona Daily Star, who was one of the first to be told about the cuts, said that the decision was " obviously not thought out. " The cuts not only affect students but also the Tomb- stone Epitaph and South Tucson ' s El Indipendiente. The two small papers which were run out of the journal- ism department faced an uncertain future. The cuts alone were drastic and drew much pro- test from faculty and stu- dents alike. However, when asked how much student input he considered Sypherd said, " Virtually none. " Students reacted to these words with letters of angry protest the Wildcat. Many raised the question of priorities at this univer- sity. Who was more im- portant, they asked, stu- dents or administrators? The changes proposed came as shocks to many who believed that the uni- versity was on a more stu- dent oriented campus. Salvaged from the muck.

The campus came together in preparation for the Homecoming game against the University of California Bears. Some of the activities included daily lunch events such as tug-of-war, the dat- ing game, Olympic day, and the Homecoming parade. Students competed to show spirit and support for the Wildcat team. There was also a prize for a free night in a hotel. The spirit of the campus was further lifted when dorm students were surprised by the appearance of the March- ing Band. They roamed all of campus and gathered stu- dents to cheer on the Foot- ball team. In addition to the activi- ties, the Homecoming King and Queen were selected dur- ing half-time on the 5th. Reuben Morales and Sophie Dumey were honored as the royalty of ' 94. Dumey and Morales are 22-year-old se- niors from Tucson.

The house had received re- peated accusations of sexual assault. " We support innocent victims and the presump- tion of innocence, " read a poster on an outside wall of the Delta Chi fraternity house, where it was lights out. Alexa Stanard, the stu- dent co-director of the Women ' s Resource Center said, " We ' re highlighting them because they are re- peat offenders. I realize it hasn ' t been proven, but they have been put on probation twice for sexual assault. The administration has re- mained so silent about this. " The point of the dem- onstration was mainly sym- bolic, Stanard said. " We want the univer- sity to inform the students of particular rape statistics, not be hushed up about them, " said fellow co-di- rector Felicia Parker. " The punitive action taken does not suffice, " Standard said. The Dean of Students office announced on No- vember 9, 1994, that the UA chapter of the Delta Chi fraternity would no longer be recognized as an official student organiza- tion because of student con- duct and risk management violation. The fraternity will not be eligible to apply for recognition for the next five years. " This is no longer con- sidered a ' house ' . It is con- sidered a group of individu- als, " said UA police chief Harry Hueston. Visible public forums can be a method of advo- cacy, said Beth Carey, Tuc- son Rape Crisis Center ex- ecutive director. " Victims can ' t always speak for themselves, so people who show up for a rally can do that, " she said. People arrived at 7 p.m. with candles. They stood across the street " so they could see us, " Standard said.

Lemmon. Students were running low on cash by the end of the semester and took to book snatching. Students tried to sell the books back to compensate for their lack of cash. Due to the thefts, students were warned to keep a close eye on their textbooks and to immedi- ately report any books that were stolen. In addition to the in- crease in book theft, talks about the core curriculum took off. President Manuel Pacheco and Provost Paul Sypherd led discussion to replace the general educa- tion requirements with core curriculum classes. This plan would require students to take a year long course in science, social sciences, arts and humanities. " Many of the faculty members are resistant be- cause they have worked for some years to develop gen- eral education courses that work for them, " Sypherd said. Since there was con- cern about the new pro- posal, the debate continued between 1 1 communities and 350 faculty members. The University had other issues at hand as well. The administration settled a suit that dealt with the death of Reuben Hernandez who was killed by a under- age student who drove home drunk after a frater- nity party at Delta Tau Delta. Reuben Hernandez ' s family received $150,000 in the settlement. The ad- ministration claimed this would cause a more strict enforcement of the laws about drinking at fraterni- ties. Despite the controver- sies, the semester came to a close with the chill of win- ter. Snow lightly covered the local mountain tops, while the wind continued to blow cold air from suc- cessive winter storms. Walkin ' in a winter wonderland.

The Clintons spent this month singing to the tune of the season, while the House of Representatives ' leadership was handed over to the Republicans. More- over, the University was also involved in politics of its own, with students protest- ing the disbandment of the Physical Education depart- ment. After the Congress was taken over by the Republi- cans, cuts were around the comer. The Republicans laid off over 1,000 employees from the staff. They claimed that there would be more cuts and stricter use of funds. They also stated that the decrease in personnel that Washing- ton had to pay would result in a cut in taxes for the gen- eral public. Among the Republicans that gained considerable at- tention was the new Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Gingrich comes from the same background as Clinton with the exception of his party affiliation. He received many letters from the public telling him to keep the liber- als off. There were even rumors that he would be run- ning for president in 1996, however, many believe it is unlikely. Nonetheless, Clinton claimed that he was not intimidated by the switch V in party control, and that he was going to work with the Republicans to provide the public with what they want. Meanwhile, the Democrats and the Republicans fought over who got the biggest of- fice. Arizona saw a rise in AIDS and drug use in the past year. As of March 1993, 28.2 AIDS cases per 1 00,000 people reported. This is slightly above the average which is 26.9 per 100,000 people. As far as drug use, 30.5 percent of third-sixth grades have tried alcohol, while 19. 1 percent have tried marijuana. It was also noted that Arizona consumes 2.06 gallons of alcohol per per- son, ranking it the sixth high- est among the 50 states in the consumption of alcohol. Jobs decreased at Davis- Monthan Air Force Base by 5 1 . The administration stated that about 60,000 more people will be reduced in the next two years as will. University students also faced cutbacks: the Physical Education department was placed on the chopping block. Students protested, claiming that without Physi- cal Education, they would not have the opportunity to learn about health habits. About thirty students marched and chanted around the campus about the right to health education. " Everyone Deserves A Healthy Living " was one of the signs visible during the protest to save Physical Education department. Over 30 students marched to save the department from being cut.

On January 20, the death toll reached 4,431. The damage from the quake caused thousands of other people to flee their homes and find help at one of the 984 temporary shelters. One temporary shelter, in fact, was set up by Japan ' s largest organized crime syndicate. The Yamaguchi- gumi was handing out bread, powdered milk, dia- pers, ready-to-eat noodles and water—free of charge. The earthquake turned the modem city of Kobe into a devastated city. While the initial earthquake was devastating, the after- math was even more so. Because of the damage to pipelines, water was shut off to more than one mil- lion buildings. One benefit was that the earthquake took place in the winter. Because of the freezing temperatures bod- ies did not decompose. But at the same time, the weather probably killed some of the more survivors who were trapped in the rubble. Page A28 1 994-95 University of Arizona Desert H There ' s No Food By AMANDA HUNT Arizona Daily Wildcat It was announced in early December that the Student Union satellite, lo- cated on North Park Av- enue, would take in private restaurants through the Philadelphia-based Aramark Corporation. According to Karen Steinhardt Aramark food service director, the former Garden Court Restaurant will open with Aramark ' s own conceptual restaurant. It will have several differ- ent fares within it, for ex- ample, Chinese food and a salad bar. But the new restaurants in the Park Student Center have left some students with a bittersweet taste in their mouths. The main grievances about the restaurants in- clude high prices, poor se- lection and inconvenient hours of operation. Most students are satisfied with the food but were expect- ing something different. The new restaurants in place of the Garden Court includes six different se- lections: the Wokery, Tor- tillas, Grill Works, Allegro Pasta, World ' s Fare and Salad Garden. Gary Summers, assis- tant director of food ser- vices, said the restaurant has not offered problems, only challenges. He said he has answered some con- cerns by extending the hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. " The hours are terrible, " said Justin Levitz, business freshman. He said he would like the restaurant to stay open to as late as midnight on the weekends because it is one of the few places near his residence hall that takes the All Aboard meal plan. The restaurants in the Student Union have simi- lar hours. During the week the Fiddlee Fig is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Louie ' s LowerLevelisopen 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Summers said they hope to open soon on the weekends but are lacking in staff. On her first trip to the restaurant, Marlou Heiland, molecular and cellular bi- ology senior, said " The cof- fee is better than before. " Jon Boucher, account- ing freshman, had a differ- ent review of the restau- rant. " It sucks. There ' s no food. " he said. " Last week they said there would be more food, but as of now (the amount) is minimal, " Boucher said. " The food is good but there ' s not enough.

United States V. Sioux Nation (1980), " greeted chief Justice Wil- liam Rehnquist as he began his first day of teaching at the UA Law School. " I think he and other members of the Supreme Court have issued decisions in areas dealing with women and minorities that demonstrate a real lack of sensitivity, " said Susan Crawford, a law student and member of the National Lawyers Guild. Crawford joined about 20 law students and one law professor who gathered outside of Rehnquist ' s classroom in the Univer- sity of Arizona College of Law to protest his " conser- vative, right-wing, regres- sive views, " she said. Rehnquist is teaching a one credit, two week class titled " The Supreme Court in the History of the United States " to second and third- year law students. This is the second year he has taught the course. Protest- ors were present last year as well. Rehnquist avoided the protestors, arriving at class 10 minutes early and guarded by two Secret Ser- vice agents. The agents stood at the classroom door, allowing only students reg- istered for the class to en- ter. Students involved in the protest said they wanted people to know that not all law students are for Rehnquist or agree with his views. " A lot of law students are involved in the status quo of life and they are hon- ored, like the UA, to Have him here, " Crawford said, " but there are those of us who are in the law to bring about social change and protect the rights of the underclass and minorities. " Reaction from students watching was mixed as to the appropriateness of the protest. " I think it ' s horribly dis- respectful, " said Amy Goyer, a second-year law student. Howard Druan, a stu- dent in Rehnquist ' s class, was also protesting his new professor who he said has a history of making decisions against poor people and minorities. " He has been on the wrong side of many deci- sions, " Druan said. " He is a symbol of everything that ' s wrong with the legal sys- tem.

By LUPE EAMON UofA Desert Yeartxxik The eyes of the nation were focused on the Uni- versity of Arizona the evening of February 26th as the news magazine TV program 60 Minutes ran its piece on the university sys- tem. Filmed mainly on the UofA campus, the piece featured the conflict of teaching versus research and the roles of teaching assistants on campus. Fea- tured in the discussion were two professors on oppos- ing sides of the issue. Dr. Jon Solomon and Regents Professor Keith Lehrer. The aftermath of the airing was one of heated debates, angry editorial letters and violent back lashing cen- tered mostly around the idea that the university promotes research over teaching and the welfare of underclass education. Lehrer called the story " simple, muckraking jour- nalism. " His complaint was that the reporters had a pre- conceived notion against the university and that they ignored the rest of the facts. Also in question was the use of what some called loaded statistics in saying that 87 percent of all classes were taught by teaching as- sistants. While it is true that if all sections such as English 101 and Math 117 are counted in the statistic along with the less numer- ous professor taught higher division course, the statis- tic holds true. However, countered one Wildcat staff editorial, the UA used this same method to demon- strate that 64 percent of all classes have an enrollment of 29 or less. The support for the piece was not just limited to the editorial staff, how- ever. At a public forum a few weeks after the airing, student and faculty recog- nized many of the prob- lems the 60 Minutes team exposed. Susan Steele, vice provost of undergraduate education said the UA was working hard to " make im- provements for under graduates, but change is slow. " Solomon, one of the featured critics of the UA in the piece, said the situa- tion had improved since five years ago. However, he said, " It is a shame it took something like 60 Min- utes to bring these changes about. Many of the steps the a dministration took this week were proposed three yearsago. " Naomi Mudge, a history senior, said " We now see that if you light a match under the administration ' s feet, they hop.

About 500 more students turned out for the primary than voted in the prioryear ' s general election. The campaigning for the new ex- ecutive and senatorial candidates wasftirious. At every turn one could see the slogans, huge post- ers, and handbill passers. With 20.5 percent of the primary vote. Brad Milligan left the race to the two higher ranked competitors. Ben Driggs, with 29.8 percent of the 1 ,785 votes, and Ethan Orr, with 39.9 per- cent, continued on to the general election that proved to be more of a surprise than the huge voter turn out was. After the general election, Driggs came out on top by a slim 124- vote margin. This vic- tory was not undisputed, how- ever, and after cries of foul play, Orr called forarecountandfiled an appeal to review the election process. Claiming unfair penal- ties forcampaign violations, Orr appealed to the ASU A Supreme Court. But after reconsidering, he dropped the suit because " the whole purpose [of the appeal] was toevaluate the process, " not to hold another election. Driggs was pleased by this decision which allowed him to get back to business without complications. As he said after theelection, " Thereal workstarts now.

By LUPE EAMON UofA Desert Yearlnxik For the first time in the history of the esteemed University of Arizona Art Museum, a disclaimer was placed at the entrance to a Masters of Art Thesis exhi- bition. The much publi- cized collection of UA ' s most accomplished art students focused primarily on a very touchy subject — sex and sexuality. The multimedia works were not the first to deal with explicit subject mat- ter, but the museum decided to experiment with the idea of a warning sign in- keeping with the experi- mental spirit of the display. Many thought that the sign was warranted because of the museum ' s popularity with local schools who of- ten tour the displays as part of their yearly field trip regi- men. However, the question was also raised in the com- munity about whether the sign was an act of gratu- itous censorship without precedent in the museum ' s history. The cry to arms on this side was not altogether loud or long lived since the controversy was quickly quelled by those who felt that the museum had every prerogative to erect the sign. The question then re- mained, who was to judge the impact of these works? The range of media ran from a three screen video presentation to photograph sequences and hand-made books. The subject matter, though, was fairly consistent and thought pro- voking. How does one deal with their sexuality? What role does it play in one ' s life? How is it to be ex- pressed? Deep questions, these which the masters attempted to answer. And what was the general impact of the exhibit? One student who toured the gallery with her Humanities 250C class, tried to come to terms with the works. " I am really not sure what to make of the exhibit but many profound emotions and concepts were presented in bold form, " sophomore Melissa Bjelland said. Perhaps the only ones who can fully understand the works are those who created them. But then again, what is the purpose of the display if not to at least attempt to raise the understanding of its audi- ence, disclaimer sign or no. 1 994-95 University of Arizona Desert b Terror Hits Home By LUPE EAMON UofA Desert Yearbook Oklahoma City, OK- As the smoke cleared over the rubble of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on the morning of the April 19, the two year anniversary of the destruction Branch Davidian cult compound in Waco, Texas, the destruction was overpowering. A car bomb decimated half of the nine-story building in the downtown area of the heartland city, leaving a nation of survivors to mourn the deaths of over a hundred victims. The bomb went off at the beginning of the work day when many of the employes had dropped their children off at the day-care center located on the second floor, almost directly above the bomb. The bomb sent glass and debris flying, injuring at least 200 people, crushing many others under rubble. Many of the known casualties were children and many more were missing or unidentifiable. The rescue efforts moved as swiftly as possible, hindered by the instability of the building and bad weather. After a few early rescues, however, the hope for finding additional survivors was growing increasingly slim. Christopher Wright, one of the Coast Guard members helping inside the building said that rescuers would pe- riodically turn off their chain saws to listen for survivors, " but we didn ' t hear anything — just death. " The cry for justice was quick and certain. United States Attorney General Janet Reno announced a $2 million dollar award for in- formation leading to an arrest in the case. Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating reported that a firefighter told him: " You find whoever did this. All I ' ve found in here are a baby ' s finger and an American flag. " Suspicions flew regard- ing the identities of the bomb- ers from Muslim extremists to dissatisfied tax payers. But shortly after the bombing, a suspect was taken into custody on a traffic and weapons charge just miles from the bombing. Timothy McVeigh, a suspected member of a para- military militia and former Kingman, Arizona resident, was already in custody when composite drawings of him and another suspect were being circulated world wide.

On the 50th anniversary of the war ' s end, President Bill Clinton laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in a solemn V-E Day observance at Arlington National Cemetery. Clinton did this to honor the American vet- erans of World War II. This was only the start of the day for Clinton. After being ushered into Arlington National Cemetery underneath a 21 -gun salute and greeting fifty World War II veterans, he left Arlington to address five thousand more veterans at Fort Myer, Virginia. After this ceremony, Clinton flew to Moscow to observe V-E Day ceremonies and to meet with Russian President Boris Yeltsin. While Clinton was in Moscow, Vice President Al Gore wa.s in Paris, France, along with eighty other world leaders. French President Fran9ois Mitterrand hosted commemorative ceremonies for the end of the war that tore France in two. Mitterrand led the government leaders across the broad plaza to the Arc de Triomphe. They stood silently behind President Mitterrand as he paid his respect to the tomb of France ' s unknown soldier.

Simpson in the month of May. While the case had always been perilous for the man on trial for the brutal murders of Nicole Brown-Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, evidence pre- sented by prosecutors in the lagging first half of the case looked convincing. After hearing accounts of botched police investi- gative work and a possible police frame up, the jury heard something else com- pletely when DNA test re- sults were released. The prosecution charted out the basics of the testing proce- dure and the results for the jury in the hopes of con- vincing them of the defendant ' s guilt. Blood taken from the crime scene, a single drop, was shown to match Simpson ' s blood within a certain degree of certainty. The possibility of the blood being someone else ' s? About one in 170 million. The attorneys for the defense spent most of their efforts to refute the validity ofthe test results. But what of the bloody glove, the rumors of police racism, and the possibility of a mys- tery suspect? The jury is still out. Taking the oath, newly- elected ASUA officials swear to abide by their duties in the coming year. Presided over by ASUA Supreme Court justice Mike Brown, the ceremony took place on the first day of May in front of Old Main. Photo by Adam F. jarrold. News - Production by Lupe Eomon Play Ball!

" This country is about balance— about being individuals. " Each student that walked at commencement, then, personified Chappa ' s conception of America. Each student who had endured the four, five, or maybe even six years at the UofA to complete their under- graduate or graduate programs had made their own indelible mark, their individual achievement: graduation. So with streamers and confetti flying into the electricity-filled air, balloons floating to the rafters of the capacity-filled McKale Center, and members of the Class of 1945 looking on, the Graduating Class of 1 995 joined the more than 150,000 citizens who are called " Alumni ofthe University of Arizona.

Old Main is the first building that greets most students and visitors when they arrive at the University of Arizona. However, for graduating students such as Psychology senior Christine Stanek, a Spring 1995 graduate, it provides a perfect background for studying and reminiscing about old memories.

For example, Nursing senior Gina Senese, a Fall 1994 graduate who is " tired of it, ready to move and make money " shows her pure elation over completing four and a half years of undergraduate work. Photo by Frank Nguyen. ACADEMICS And Set To Take On The Worllll After four, five, or sometimes six years (maybe even more), an in- credibly remarkable thing happens: undergraduate students at the University of Arizona come to the realization that gradu- ation is no longer a faint glimmer in the distance or a pass- ing thought, but an eventual reality. However, the joy and elation that some may have ex- perienced in the past from graduation, now seems to be somehow mixed with anxiety and sometimes even fear of post-gradu- ate life. " On one hand, I ' m excited. On the other, I ' m a bit anx- ious, " said Christine Stanek, a Psychology and Physical Therapy senior. " It ' s very exciting to think I ' m graduating. However, that doesn ' t mean much in terms of a job and supporting myself. " The fear of not finding ajob after gradu- ation, though, is not rare. " My friends have not been very suc- cessful at finding jobs. No one is hiring, especially not new graduates, " said Gina RSVP The recurring ritual of registering for classes via phone became a fundamental part of a student ' s life by the time they reached graduation. A common complaint among students across campus was the lack of availability of classes, particularly those needed to graduate. Photo by Frank Nguyen. Senese, Nursing senior. " But for my ma- jor, I hope to be a little more needed than others. " Despite the difficulties that may lie ahead for some, all the years of hard work are not wrought away in vain. A key, primary benefit of a collegiate education is the development of self and the abil- ity to fulfill goals. " 1 came upon a piece of paper that I wrote when I was a freshman taking a study skills and time management work- shop, " lamented Stanek. " I was sur- prised to see that I was achieving what 1 set out to do in August 1 990: graduating in five years, supporting myself, having good, healthy relationships with other people. In fact, out of my list of short- term and long-term goals, the only thing I didn ' t do was graduate with a Business degree. " Stanek continued, " This was a happy moment, becau.se it made me feel I could do the same thing for the next five years!

FRESHMEN Grade: There ' s Moreuan You Think W ho exactlyare those people who sit in the back of the classroom, give you handouts, and grade your pa- pers? To give some insight into this question, the Desert Yearbook talked to Philosophy Teaching Assistant Peter J. Gra- ham, also known by his self-imposed nick- name , PJ. Graham is a third-year Ph.D. Graduate student specializing in Language, Mind and Epistemology. The following interview was reported by Frank Nguyen. Desert Yearbook: What typeof work would you like to be involved in after your graduate program? Peter J. Graham: After completing my Ph.D., I plan to pur- sue an academic ca- reer as a university professor. I would be happy teaching at ei- ther a large research university like Uof A or UCLA or Michi- gan, or at a liberal arts college like Oberlin or Weslyan. Being a professor includes continued research in my field, not just teaching. So I plan to publish articles in professional journals in philosophy and maybe even linguistics jour- nals, and someday write a book or two. DY: What are you r other interests? PJ: I love film. Or maybe I just love to sit in theatres where no one can call me, and where I can sit and eat popcorn without having to worry about picking up my mess. I love Russian, French and Japanese literature. I love to travel, and coaching debate allows me to see the country. Otherwise I just study and grade. DY: Are you currently involved in any projecT PJ: r m involved in a couple of projects right now. One has to do with the age old question of whether we know anything, but in the context of whether we really know what we are thinking. A second project I am involved in has to do with the relation between lan- guage and thought. Currently I am invesfi- gating how intimate the relation between mind and language is. My interests in both projects are related to my interest in current empirical research in linguistics and cogni- tive psychology, where theories of the mind and of lan- guage are developed and actually tested in thelab,notjustinthe philosopher ' s arm- chair. DY: Why do you do it? PJ: Hike being aTA. I like interacting with students where I am not the bad guy, the big mean professor. I like to get to know the students and help them with the class. I don ' t get to know all of them. But I do get to know some of them, and some of them are really great. They are happy to be in college and they really want to get a lot out of school . They work hard and they are very bright. Having students like that is a real joy. And turning students into students who work hard and want to get a lot out of school is a real joy too. DY: Do you have any memorable moments from TA ' ing that stand out in your mind? PJ: I once TA ' d for someone who was so dry that no-one ever really paid any atten- tion. So when he forgot to turn on his micro- ACADEMICS phone in the lecture hall no-one said any- thing. They couldn ' t tell the difference. Once I had to grade so many exams and papers aj the same time that I stayed in my office aLj night without sleeping just to get my gradei in on time. Once, however, a professor gradecj the final when he didn ' t have to. My wintei vacation got an early start that year. DY: How do you get along with your stui dents? PJ: I think I interact well with students Since I am a student myself, I still know wha it is like. I try to be supportive, but as ; teacher I need to be authoritative as well, like it that when I see former students o ) before ives f stDdei W: Here an flasses-ldont «tsterliiadj itelltheiffereiK ' O ; inv exams and 1 stayed in my oni« «ver,ai idj ' thavetaMy seta welwitlistude« fflvrflstiil f, [act wl» nine around campus they smile and say lello before I get a chance to figure out here I have seen them before.

I don ' t think having TAs and discus- ion sections, or even courses, taught by TAs s a bad thing. But at UofA the discussion ections are just too big sometimes.

STORY BY ANDREA ANNESE JUNIORS Seniors set to take on the World No more midterms, no more finals, and no more cramming are a stu- dent ' s dream. Even better is to leave the UA with a useful degree in hand and a secure job lying ahead. " I am going to work in a public ac- counting firm in L.A.; I don ' t know which one yet but I know it is going to be in L.A, " said John Taylor, Ac- counting senior. Taylor is a senior that has accomplished every student ' s dream by getting a job in his field with a chance to advance. Taylor explains that the refer- ences given to him by the job interviews performed on campus helped him in get- ting his current offers. Bill Witharm, Marketing, and Robert McCleery, Chemistry, agree with Taylor in the ideal goals as far as having a decent job and a family. However each, states that they don ' t believe that the UA has prepared them fully for the real world. According to Witharm, this is due to the fact that he is only now getting into his marketing major. " I am a Chemistry major and they (the Chemistry college) have given me a basic well rounded idea of what Chemistry is about, but there isn ' t a whole lot of stuff out there after you graduate to help you find a job or get into graduate school, " McCleery stated. On the other hand, Tay- lor believes that the UA has given him the skills to make it. " The UA has pre- pared me for the real world. I took enough electives that in- volved writing and speech skills. But no one is ever really pre- pared. Once you get to a job, the whole world changes, " states Taylor. Although seniors are ready to use their degrees, they are going to miss certain things that have become familiar to them during their college years. " I am going to miss being able to have friends that have all sorts of different in- terests and seeing them on a daily basis. Besides, it ' s a good school and a good place to get where you need to go. It offers you the opportunity to explore whatever you are interested in, " said Taylor. Despite their expectations and reser- vations these seniors are ready to put their degrees to use. STORY BY IMAN ATIYEH NATHAN HANDELSMAN ACADEMICS Smiling Nervously!

" It will post- pone my graduation only by about 1 year, " Tim Brewer, a sophomore in Accounting. These were just some of the feelings that Tim and Jennifer Brewer expressed about their recent, and first pregnancy. Most students can imagine going to school and working, but being married in addition is a little hard to swallow. Since May 21 of 1993, Tim and Jennifer has been mar- ried and doing just that. According to the Brewers, the biggest dif- ference between them and any other students was their outlook. " A single person doesn ' t need to worry about money in the same way, " Jennifer said. She went on to explain that most college students are concerned with living month to month and getting enough money to pay the rent, utilities, and if they ' re lucky three decent meals a day. While they ' re concerned with the same things they also need to think about the future. They would like to put money away and invest, especially now that the baby was on the way. Since August of 1992, Tun, 21, woiiced 15 hours a week for the Academic Accounting de- partment making just over minimum wage. Through his job in the Accounting department, he gained an interest in Accounting. Tim also took a full load of classes each semester and would probably enroll for summer school next session. Jennifer, 20, was faced, with the pressure of woricing 30 hours a week for Bank One, taking six units and, ofcourse, her first pregnancy. Jennifer, who loves working with kids, originally planned a major in Education, but realized she was more interested in helping the kids deal with the prob- lems than trying to tackle lesson plans day after day.

Probably. Many students have heard or had to deal with one of these things at the beginning of each semester. If they haven ' t, they are very lucky. Why? Well, because the amount of bureaucracy that has to be dealt with when one drops or adds a class is not an appetiz- ing matter. There is no doubt that the beginning of each semester brings on the excitement of new classes, new teachers, new and old friends, but along with these positive points comes the abhorrent di- lemma of the add drop dogma. Students pray that the classes they signed up for in November are the right ones, that they won ' t get cancelled, and that they like the teacher. However, for many students that is not always the case. For one reason or another things don ' t always go right. " I signed up for a jazz band class and in the catalog it said that no auditions were required, " freshman Elena Trevino com- mented, " but when I got to class I found out that you were supposed to audition. " This is Trevino ' s first time going through the add drop process. " It is a pain in the butt, I would rather RS VP, " Trevino continued. Trevino, like many other students, had to locate her professor for a signature, then wait for thirty minutes or more in line to drop the class, then locate an- other class to replace the old one and add that. This process was not uncommon, as many students began to realize. Glaring into the Administration Building during the first day of classes, one wonders whether a conference of great sadness is going on or a funeral, but it is neither. It is the add drop process in ac- tion. STORY BY IMAN J. ATIYEH So which class is it this semester? Almost every student has to go through the process known (un)affec- tionately as " Add Drop " .

Long lines, frustration, and a general de- sire to toss a Mac out the window of Modem Languages 5 1 1 may be preva- lent attitude while working long hours in the lab. But with a little time, a few changes and a cooperative effort on the part of students, staff, and faculty the computerized language lab will continue to improve the pursuit of academia for all involved. Since 1988, the computerized lan- guage lab, which serves the Department of Spanish and Portu- guese, has welcomed students to engage in a human automaton co- operative effort. This provides students with a better understanding of the languages they are struggling to learn. " The lab helps stu- dents get familiar with computers and scho- lastic applications as well as to show that there are other means of learning foreign languages other than their instructors., " Computer Science junior and lab personnel, Neil Khemlani said. The lab, a brain child of department head Dr. Karen L. Smith, offers placement testing, departmental exams, and weekly exercises for students. Students in Spanish 101 through 202 are required to venture into the depths of the lab at least once a week to take part in a variety of listening, cultural reading, vocabulary, and gram- Studying late into the night, this Spanish student struggles to keep her eyes open while she cranks out vocabulary, cultural reading, grammar, and listening exercises. Photo by Charles C. Labenz mar exercises. Lab exercises reflect the students ' ability according to the course in which they are en- rolled. Forexample, a student in 101 or 102 may spend most of his her time working on grammar and vocabulary, while a 201 or 202 smdent will spend more time with reading and listening exercises. This reflects the content of the courses themselves. According to Khemlani , " (The lab) is meant to be supple- mental not a replace- ment. " Controversy sur- rounding the lab is waits and long lines. The main problem, ac- cording to Khemlani, is the students ' timing. Khemlani has noticed that most lab traffic is in the middle of the day when the majority of classes are in ses- sion. This may offer a simple explanation as to why some students have difficulty accessing the lab, while others do not. " Sometimes it ' s an hour wait, " Spanish 20 1 freshman, Anita Ray admitted, " If you have class, you can ' t wait. " Contrary to Ray, Spanish 201 junior, Kelli Sieczkowski commented, " I ' ve never had to wait. " According to Lab Administrator and junior in Systems Engineering, Dave Sergeant, plans ACADEMICS Row upon row of computers fill Modern Languages 511. The lab is composed of Macintosh LC520 and Quadra 636 computers as well as Sony audio equipment. Photo by Charles C.

Labenz to increase the 40 work statioti lab in- clude: re-opening Modem Languages 5 1 as a computer testing center pending the repair of the Sony audio equipment; an upgrade from LocalTalk ' to ethemet which would increase speed and reliabil- ity; and finally, to allow students to ac- cess exercises from other labs on campus, alleviating the strain. " If we can get Spanish more dis- persed, we can open up the lab for other departments, " Sergeant said. Sergeant hopes that the lab will be able to accommodate foreign language multimedia software. Each workstation is already equipped with CD-ROMS. According to Sergeant, French place- ment test are already being integrated. Although these upgrades seem right iiround the comer, problems at the begin- ning of the school year have shown that a simple upgrade may not be as simple as it first appears. A system wide upgrade from Macintosh System 6.08 to 7 caused delays and lab crashes due to a part of the Spanish exercise program originally writ- ten for the earlier system. " It took me forever to figure out what it was, " Ser- geant said. While some Spanish students feel it would be advantageous to be able to access the lab from all over campus oth- ers feel it would hinder their progress. " It would be great, " Ray said, " You could go to a lab close to home. . . I don ' t need them (the lab staff) unless there ' s a problem with the computer. Besides they ' re rude. " Contrary to Ray, Sieczkowski feels the staff is " agreeable " and believes, " The point is to have lab personnel give you a hand. " Sieczkowski went on to explain that a CCIT (Center for Computing and Information Technology) staff member would not know the language lab soft- ware and could not help with it. The language lab, although frustrat- ing for some, is a step towards using modem technology for learning - the wave of the future.

Photo by Lupe Eamon I CONFLICTS Students Do More Than Sit When Psychology 101 students joined the class, they got more than they bargained for. Instead of reading lengthy case studies and studying for midterms, as most would expect, all ' Psych 101 ' students became the subjects of ex- periments concocted by the Psychol- ogy department and its graduate stu- dents—six units of research were re- quired from each. With much appre- hension and the safety of their grades in mind, these students often trekked to the third floor of the Psychology Building to sign their name up for an experiment on the infamous Psych Experiment Board. " 1 thought at first that they were going to be some strange inkblot and electric shock search for my inner child, but it wasn ' t as bad as all of that, " said undecided freshman Kyle Edgar. " Most experiments are just filling in the bubbles and answering ques- tions—nothing too startling or scary. Although that ' s not what I expected! " said Family and Consumer Resources sophomore Kerry Dinsmore. Although most experiments were not bizarre, many sign-up sheets claimed that they were solely for " right- handed males " or for specified groups making it difficult for many to find any experiments that were suitable. In addition to this difficulty, stu- dents also found it tricky to even re- member to attend. " I completely for- got about my experiment. As a matter of fact, I slept right through it. It turned out to be a real hassle because I ended up losing credits. I am still trying to make up for it now! " said freshman Lisa Punelli. When students were able to stay awake for their experiments, most found the process pretty interesting. Experimenters were required to ex- plain their purpose and desired out- come once the experiment was com- plete. This usually put people at ease afterwards. " Through the whole thing I was trying to figure out how they wanted me to respond. Typically I was wrong. This research proved to be a learning experience for everyone involved, " Punelli continued. As Brooke Murphy put it, " Al- though I was a bit worried about what to expect at the beginning, the first hand experience was very helpful. When I read about experiments in my book I was able to relate to the whole idea better. " STORY BY VALERIE LYNN MILLER ACADEMICS Let me see.

Photo by courtesy of Arizona Daily Wildcat I I The lottle Takes a New Tw Underneath the east wing of the University of Arizona football stadium where the Steward Observatory Mirror Laboratory is housed, a team of enterprising scientists and engineers is building the foundation for a revolu- tion in astronomy. They are making giant, light- weight mirrors of un- precedented power for a new generation of op- tical and infrared tele- scopes. These mirrors are a radical departure from the conventional solid- glass mirrors used in the past. They are honey- combed on the inside; created out of borosilicate glass (Pyrex) that is melted, molded and spun into shape in a specifically designed rotating oven. These honey-comb mirrors offer the advantages of their solid counterparts — rigidity and stabil- ity — but they can be made significantly larger and dramatically lighter. The Mirror Lab team has also developed a revolutionary new method to polish the honey- comb mirrors with a deeply curved, parabolic surface that gives them a focal length much shorter than conventional mirrors. Such so-called fast mirrors not only improve telescope perfor- mance, but they can fit into a much shorter tele- scope body that requires a smaller, less expensive enclosure. The pioneering work being done today at the Mirror Lab had its beginning around 1 980 with a MIRROR LAB backyard experiment by Dr. Roger Angel, the lab ' s founder and director who the Los Angeles Times described as " part scientist, part inventor and part dreamer. " Curious about the suitability of borosilicate glass for making large mirrors, he tested the idea by fus- ing together two Pyrex custard cups in an im- provised kiln. The ex- periment was a success and led to a series of bigger kilns and small furnaces and, eventu- ally, the casting of three 1.8-meter mirrors. By 1985, Angel and his team of scientists, engineers and technicians had developed the hon- eycomb mirror technology sufficiently that the Mirror Lab was moved into its current facility. A large, rotating oven was built and a series of mirrors as big as 3.5 meters in diameter were successfully cast. In 1990, this oven was ex- panded to its current size in preparation for casting mirrors up to 8.4 meters. At the same time, a new wing was added to the Mirror Lab to house two mirror polishing machines. Future plans call for the construction of a separate, non-rotating hearth (oven floor). While a mirror mold is being set up on the hearth of the main oven, the oven top will be used with the second casting test blanks and the large secondary mirrors that will be needed by new large tele- scopes. STORY COURTESY OF LORI STILES For Information Through Garbage Every Monday through Friday at 2:00 P.M., students in their plas- tic gloves and aprons climb through a mountain of garbage. This unique activity has been going for the past 2 1 years. Who would want to climb through garbage? Well, for starters. An- thropology majors. The Anthropology department is in charge of this project that has been ap- propriately termed: the Gar- bage Project. According to Kathy Cisco, Re- search Specialist for the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology, the project in- volved compiling information for Tucson Waste Management. Tucson Waste Manage- ment was doing an experiment with 4 areas of Tucson. They were collecting only garbage one day, recyclable ob- jects another, and green waste a third day. The reason Tucson Waste Man- agement was employing the Anthropology ' s Garbage Project was to determine if there was any change in people ' s waste. In other words, how much waste compared to the amount of recycling. " There is more of a focus on recycling as people become more envi- ronmentally aware, " commented Kathy Cisco. The Garbage Project also compiled information for city schools. The city was trying to find new ways of getting rid of school garbage. The Garbage Project sent out surveys to public schools asking how their was re- cycled. Finding out ways to help the envi- ronment was not the only purpose for the Garbage Project. It also pro- vided hands-on ex- perience for stu- dents. There were studies done on how old garbage is, and where it comes from. They also carried out studies on different neigh- borhoods to see if there was a difference in the waste material. Another study done was examining waste material to determine occurrence of floods that in- terested the researchers. Searching through garbage may not sound like much fun, but that garbage may contain a wealth of information.

This scene of under-the-surface boiling was just the reaction of many students to the announcements of departmental and program cuts. Receiving most of the publicity, the journalism and statistics departments were the first and foremost on the minds of many wary university goers, especially those involved with the departments. Jour- nalism junior Amanda Hunt commented on the proposed cut: " It was a really poor decision but it ' s what we expected from a research facility. There may not be many jobs in print journalism out there but the program gives a lot of training that will help in tons of jobs. " Included in the proposed cuts was the less-publicized exercise and sports science (EXSS) department. EXSS of- fers classes ranging fro m aerobic dance to sports psychology. Janela Livingston, a Pima Community College student who intended to transfer to the Uof A said that the deci- sion to cut the pro- gram definitely made her rethink her intent to enroll. " Right now I have a job lined up with the county in three years, as many others I know do. All we need is to get our degrees through the department, " said Livingston. " Elemen- tary schools are having a hard time find- ing P.E. teachers as it is, the program really needs to be kept in town. " Most saw the cuts as detrimental to the university and the surrounding com- munity. " It seems ironic that they want publicity as a Research One institution but by cutting the journalism program they are eliminating the one field that could offer people training in that area, " said Hunt.

ADVERSTING CLUB Students By PETER AYLING American Marketing Association, President On Tuesday, November 29 the American Marketing Association held its last meeting for the fall semester. The meeting began with elections to replace the graduating officers of the club. After electing a new President (Brian Wilson) and Vice President (Bridgette Fox) the speakers were introduced. Terrance Egger, VPof Advertising for TNI and Mike Soliman, VP Marketing Develop- ment for TNI were the speakers. TNI is the Tucson Newspapers, which handles both the Tucson Citizen and the Arizona Daily Star. Terry and Mike both spoke in detail about the newspaper and their respective duties. More importantly, the two asked the group of stu- dents in attendance about their career field for business students but Terry went on to explain that most people end up in an area they never thought they would be in. Both gave a brief history of how they ended up in their respective fields (advertising and marketing) and further- more, how they came to work for the newspa- per industry. Terry stressed that the most im- portant thing to take away from this meeting was to keep yourself open to anything and make a lot of contacts as you search for the " perfect " job because you never know what could happen. After fielding some questions fiom stu- dents, Terry and Mike mentioned some mar- keting related positions opening up at TNI and invited students to give them a call to discuss them or answer any other questions they may have. The American Marketing Association has six professional speaker meetings each semes- ter. In addition they engage in and provide: resume and interview workshops, and intern ship program, networking opportunities with local business professionals, and various sociaj activities. Membership is open to all students and everyone is encouraged to attend a meeting and check the club out. For more informatiop please contact the Marketing Department. ORGANIZATIONS Call to Order!

Parents and prospective stu- dents ask plenty of questions on the tours led by the volunteer corps of students that comprise Arizona Ambassadors. These tours of campus take place twice daily on campus and include a visit to a residence hall. Although leading campus tours make up a large aspect of Ambassadors duty, these students participate in other activi- ties for the organization as well. Ambassa- dors travel to Phoenix, Flagstaff, and other areas of Arizona to talk to high school students about the great joys of being a student at the U of A. Arizona Ambassa- dors also host day long on-campus to introduce students to campus life. With all the varied activities that Arizona Ambas- sadors participate in, it is easy to see that walking backwards is just one part of an Ambassadors job.

The club also gives students a chance to attend talks given by various faculty members from both the Astronomy and Lunar Planetary Science Depart- ments. Lecture topics range from the unusual and complex like black holes and magnetic stars to the informative and down to Earth like the Jupiter comet crash and telescope building. Club members, also, have the opportunity to participate in tours of the Mirror Lab, Optical Sciences De- partment, Kitt Peak, Mt. Graham and other astronomical facilities around campus. This year the club has enjoyed new programs such as Astronomy Jeopardy, a movie night and a poetry reading with stellar nuances. Labor Day weekend, club members journeyed to Socorro, New Mexico to visit the famous Very Large Array (VLA). On-going projects include the installation of the club ' s 16-inch tele- scope on Tumamoc Hill. Once that is accomplished, the club will have its own private observatory for research and fun.

This year the clubs focus is to work for the benefit of children. " I like the clubs concentration in helping others, it gives you the opportunity to meet people while helping others, " Peto said.

' tlieP,oui| " March, March To By ANDREA ANNESSE Arizona Desert Yearbook " Well, they ' re. . .fun, " said freshman Robyn Williams about UofA Band practices. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 during the first semester. Band members are split into sections by the Band Director. One section goes to practice music, the other leams " drill " , and the flags, twirlers and poms are on their own. At the end everyone comes together, as a whole group, and runs through what has been practiced. However, practice is not always so gruel- ing. Robyn recalls an instance where practice was actually comical. " It was our last run through of the last song in our Channel-one show, " (this is the suite played during half- time a football games). At the end of the song there is a " bop " (a short note). Each " bop " must be cued individually by the drum major. " Well, the drum major was very poised standing there on the podium and as she turned and jumped to give the band a cue to play a " bop " , she completely fell off the podium. There was a silence that came over the band, then a huge roar of laughter and clapping. And of course the Navy and Marines that were walking by did the same! It was definitely an unusual way to end practice! " AND JOUSTING By LUPE EAMON Arizona Desert Yearbook For those who thought that the age of chivlary and fairy tales had ended in the long ago day of the Middle Ages, Tuesday night sometimes held a few surprises. Gathering on the Mall were sights, for the most part, unseen in the centuries since the end of feudalism. Knights in shinning armor with their trusty weapons true once again roamed in search of the good fight in the form of the modern day Knightcats. Sharing their passion for the by-gone romantic days of jousting and courtly contests, the participants revived the ideals of chivalry in a slightly less brutal form. With home- made armour and weapons, the neo-knights had it out on the Mall of Glory, each fighting for their prize. For anyone who ever dreamed of getting a step closer to Camelot, the Knightcats may have found the road. Battle on a grand scale: In the tradition of King Arthur ' s court, the Knightcats hammer out their mythical differences. The organizaton brought many of its members to a higher state of chivralic grace. Photos by Benjamin W.

Highland By JASON BRENIZEI Scottish Music and Dance Association The Scottish Music and Dance Association has been a part of the University cultural community for many years. Our goal is to spread awareness of Scottish culture through performance of the many forms of traditional Scottish arts such as highland dance, bagpiping, drumming, Scottish country dance, and Celtic music. Scottish highland dancing is an old form of solo dance which was traditionally done for luck before going to battle. The dancer of the Highland Fling would have a good day in battle if he completed the entire dance on his targe (a Scottish shield). Similarly, the dancer of the Sword Dance would procure a good omen if he were able to maneuver in the four quadrants of two crossed swords correctly without touching the swords. Although highland dances originated as solo dances performed exclusively by men, today they are competition dances which are performed by both men and women. Bagpiping is an art performed around the world. The bagpipe is not exclusively a Scottish instmment; there are Greek, Norse, and northern Spanish versions as well. However, it is the Great Highland Bagpipe which is the grandest of all. The highland bagpipe is the only recognized " instrument " of war and at one time was banned from battle. In the British regiments, drums were added to the bagpipe band mainly to keep the soldiers in step. Scottish dmmming has blossomed into a complex art form, and the bagpipe band would be incomplete without the accompanying rhythms of the side, tenor and bass dmms. Scottish Country Dance is the social dance of the culture. Couples dance in complex formations with other couples to the intricate and upbeat tunes of Celtic (pronounced KELTIC) music. We perform 25 to 30 times a year in Tucson area and meet once a week for practices and social gather- ings. There is no need of Scottish ancestry to join and performing is encouraged but not mandatory. We teach classes, socialize at Ceilidhs (Gaelic for party, pronounced KAYLEE) and welcome all newcomers.

Practicing four times a week for at least an hour each, the club became unified and strong. After their preparation was complete they were ready for competition. During the year they represented the U of A at several regional tournaments. They performed well at these tournaments and came away with many trophies as well as stun- ning per- sonal per- formances. In February they made their way to national tournament in Las Vegas. Once again they showed their hard work had paid off. The trip helped with club cohesiveness and built morale among the competitors. The main message of this club was honor. The members were taught to defend themselves without ever pro- voking a fight. This was a necessary les- son, not only in the club but also in the real world. Discussing the technique is as necessary as doing it.

ATIYEH Arizona Desert Yearbook There are over two hundred clubs at the university and each year a new one emerges while an old ones disappears. However, there is one club that has been successful for 43 years: The University of Arizona Symphonic Choir. Advised by Dr. Josef Knott for eight years, the choir enjoys many benefits. " I ' ve been in the choir for eight years, I like the repertoire a lot, " assistant conductor Mike Twineham explained. " There is a good varia- tion. We do music expanding from the Renais- sance period to the 80 ' s. " The club meets every day at 4pm to rehearse for upcoming concerts. It takes a lot of commit- ment to give up an hour to work, but Knott explained that something keeps the students coming back. " I think there is a general passion for singing a basic spirit of cooperation in sharing a purpose in singing the best, " Knott said. " Sometimes you do have to stop and think why, and you realize you love music, " Tammy Allgod explained. It would seem logical to find this class of forty filled with music majors, but the disci- plines of the students vary vastly. For example, Allgod, President, is a history major. " Itgives an opportunity for non-music majors and music majors to mix. There are a great many students, with many majors in the choir, " Allgod stated. Knott further commented that the reason non-music majors are a part of the choir is because the choir provides a break from their general area of study and it allows them to be artistic. " It gives students an opportunity to be a part of the very best choir in Tucson, " music educa- tion sophomore Thomas Sager stated. The choir has had several concert requests from the Green Valley Concert Association to the Arizona Symphony Orchestra. In addition, they have also scheduled tour for the month of March which involves travelling to such places as Phoenix and Flagstaff. " The choir is an outlet for artistic expres- sion, " Knott added.

" It is not the conventional sport, but it is a total body woricout, " sophomore T.J. Kopkash said. " It is something you do not do everyday. It is a challenge. " Sophomore Brad Harrison, also known as " injury-prone Brad, " agreed with Kopkash that climbingisquiteexhilarating. However, Kopkash and Harrison explained that " fear of injury does not come into play, but there is fear of failure. " " This sport requires a lot of technique, you have to stay focused on the climb, " sophomore Matt Muller further explained. " A major mis- conception about rock climbing is that a lot of upper body strength is necessary but the tmth is, about 70% is lower body and only 30% is upper body. " Aside fk)m woridng out each week, mem- bers also climb at outdoor locations such as Mount Lemmon and Queen Creek. In fact, their highest climb, Cochise Stronghold, was 150 feet The safety involved in climbing is based on tm.sL When a person starts climbing, they are belayed or supported by a person on stable ground.

The Arizona football team was chosen number one out of one hundred and seven division 1-A teams in Sport ' s Illustrated ' s college football preview issue.

Five players from the defensive unit, nicknamed the Desert Swarm for it ' s successes in 1992 and 1993, adorned the magazine ' s cover for the week of August 24th. It read " ROCK SOLID-Arizona is No. 1 " The swarm included defensive end senior Tedy Bruschi, who led the Pacific Ten Conference with 19 sacks last year, and linebacker senior Sean Harris. Arizona was number 2 nationally in total defense the past two years and gave up a national low 30.1 rushing yards per game in 1993.

I What goes up must come down. The laws of gravity seemed to have taken literal effect on the Wildcats ' season of triumph to despair. Some could say that the first round defeat is an Arizona tradition— a tradition that has taken place three of the last fouryears. After an impressive start, the 1 994-95 Wildcats began to show some signs of fatigue and lack of unity rather than the fiery determination that last year ' s squad embodied which took them to the Final Four. Ranked by the AP Poll as being the si xth favored team at the start of the season, the Cats drifted from the prestigious top ten to the prominent top fifteen team at the finish of the season. Signs of deterioration began when the Wildcats were defeated by their archrival ASU Sun Devils at Tempe. Furthering an increasingly gloomy season, the Wildcats, with a record of 1 45- 1 I at home over the past decade, lost three games at the McKale Center against UCLA, California and WC ZM ' i M Arizona State.

So when Poggemeyer fell awkwardly on her knee while competing in the club nationals two years ago, she was not quite completely healed. And her original fears were reinforced last year when the UA doctors told her she had severe knee damage and would need surgery. " It was a wierd experience, " said Poggemeyer, a 5-foot- 1 freshman from Scottsdale. " Coming into my freshman year, I had hoped to contribute. But when the doctors told me I had blown out my knee, I knew I would have to sit out. " But she was not content with sitting out.

Feeling the GAME Returning from their Final Four apppearance, the blazing Wildcats set forth towards a new season... Like listening to the national anthem played during the Olympics and having a sense of pride, so too is the feeling of vanity for the Arizona Wildcats team. Last season marked the second appearance in the Final Four of UA ' s history. The Wildcats lost to the eventual NCAA Champion Arkansas, 91-82. With a strong Final Four finish in last year ' s triumphant postseason finish, the U of A basketball team continue where they left off, with a stronger team and bench, minus Khalid Reeves.

At the beginning of every season, new personalities and new situations add to the difficulty of making a team work to its highest potential. Head coach Joan Bonvicini faced this challenge along with several new freshmen who made their indelible marks on the team. During exhibition play, the newest talents showed their mettle along with the more seasoned veterans. In their 58-52 win over the Tungsram of Hungary, the Cats demonstrated their shooting prowess as a promise of things that could follow. Starting point guard, freshman DeAngela Minter said, " It was isomething that clicked and we kept shooting. " But the difficulties they had in the first half, scoring just 29 points, seemed to point to the growing pains to come. After a disappointing loss against the Cowgirls of Oklahoma State, the season ahead looked rockier than expected.

Ssr- Balancing with POWER Defense and determination were the templates of last season ' s success, a new era reflects on strength and will. The Big Bang Theory was supposed to deal with biology and evolution of the existence of life. Unfortunately the theory was redeveloped by the U of A Volleyball team. The U of A seemed to have dubbed the Big Bang Theory as their explanation toward their effort and their success. The theory pointed out that the strength would be supplied by senior middle blocker Charita Johnson, senior outside hitter Melissa Ferris and All-Pac- 1 sopho- more outside hitter Barb Bell. The mastermind guiding this theory was American Volleyball Coaches Association All-West Region second team selection junior setter Laura Bartsch. Power and precision seemed to have played a dominate role in their hypothesis. As the season progressed, the ultimate test was the depth of the team in the postseason. Senior captain of the team Charita Johnson wrote, " The season has been full of its ups and downs, however all the hard work of a long and enduring season has paid off, allowing us to refocus on the more positive side of things. " With her departure, Charita ' s predic- jj mm m tion for next season, with young gun and power H l hitter Melissa Ferris, was that of improvement and Pv H optimism.

The Arizona Men ' s and Women ' s Golf teams finished off their respective Fall schedules in the 2nd week of November, but with very different results. The Wildcat women, led by Heather Graff ' s fourth-place finish, shot a team total of 944 to finish fourth at the Northern Telecom National College Women ' s Golf Invitational in Wilmington, N.C. Arizona State hit the tee-box and ran away from the field, finishing with a three-round total 900. North Carolina finished a distant second at 935. South Carolina finished third, six strikes behind the Tar Heels, and Florida State shot a 945 to round out the top five. Sun Devil senior Wendy Ward shot a Pete Dye Course record 68 on the final day to capture the individual title. Ward ' s teammate Heather Bowie shot 220, North Carolina golfer Meredith Tucker shot 225 and Graff finished three strokes behind Tucker at 228. Graff, a freshman, has been the top Arizona golfer at all of the fall tournaments, but this weekend marked her first top five finish. " I ' m really excited, " said Graff of her chances at the NCAAs, which will also be held at the Dye Course.

Back-to-back CHAMPIONS The Wildcat ' s mixture of speed and power hitting prove to be the key for another run for the NCAA Title ... After the Wildcats scorched through their season in 1994 to capture their second straight national championship, third in the last four years, people have finally taken notice. It wasn ' t just because of their NCAA best 64-3 record from last year that generated optimism before the season. It ' s was because five of the six first-team All-Americans from last year return along with other experienced players. The five All- Americans would be at their regular positions when the season starts: catcher Leah Braatz, first baseman Amy Chellevold, second baseman Jenny Dalton, shortstop Laura Espinoza and center fielder Leah O ' Brien.

With a group of qualified and dedicated swimmers, they were ready to show the rest of the world what they were made of. One way to account for their amazing abilities was their perseverance and practice. They began practice early in the morning, while most of us were still asleep, and swam for up to three hours. Then they dashed to class to maintain high enough grades to stay on the team. The end of their long day included yet another swim practice and possibly weight lifting or jogging. Once the day was over, they had the next day to look forward to, when they would get the opportunity to do it all again. The U of A had a number of talented swimmers. Chad Carvin stands out as an all-time swimmer. He holds Ameri- can, U.S. Open and NCAA records in both the 500 yard freestyle and the 1 650 yard freestyle.

Senior outfielder Menno Wickey and junior second baseman Scott Kidd are poised to lead Arizona ' s highly-touted newcomers back into national contention.

" Kidd, a co- captain, prefers to show his team the way to victory with his glove and bat. " I lead by what I do, " he said, " Ryan (Frace, the other co-captain) is the vocal one. " Junior Anthony Marnell, who hit .221 last year, will likely get the nod as catcher. Mamell ' s backup, senior Chris Cooper, has also been tabbed as the designated hitter. Last year.

The threat of losing is always great, but when it ' s to a Sun Devil, it ' s even worse. The womens ' swim team faced and conquered that threat with no problem. Although the team had lost to Arizona State in the four years preceeding, they were ready to kick some ass this year. Many on the team were seniors, with this being the last opportunity to drown the little Devils. They were quickly tossed aside in nearly all events with a final score of 161 .5 to 148.5. There was not even one event that the women did not finish in the top five. The Wildcat swimmers, veterans as well as novices, put ASU in their wake. In the 200-meter freestyle, Olympian Ashley Tapin took first, Liz Scholzen got third and freshman Heather Branstetter stole fourth, leaving the Devils with only second, fifth and sixth. That was where they would stay, in last place through the whole meet. In previous weeks, the Wildcats had stroked right over New Mexico State and Loyola.

The Wildcats will begin 1 995 with a great deal of confidence. UA coach Bill Wright enters his ninth year with an overall record of 8 1-103. Tom Hagedom enters his eighth season as the assistant coach for the Wildcats as they prepare for a long season. Currently the team is ranked 33rd in the Rolex Collegiate Tennis Rankings. In the Region VIII rankings, the Wildcats are ranked seventh. Arizona returns experience, but also will showcase some young talent. As the start of the season comes upon the Wildcats, lone senior Sten Sumberg is on the injured list. Wright expects this season to be better than last year, when the Wildcats finished fourth in the Pacific 10 Conference southern division. " I expect nothing less than the top three in the Pac-10 this year iuid we will certainly be as good as we were last year if not better, " Wright said. With one year under all of the players ' belts, the team ' s outlook is bright as experience is not one of Wright ' s concern.

Schurhoff arrived in Tucson in early January and fit into the Arizona program like the missing piece of a puzzle. Schurhoff, like fellow freshman sensation Vicky Maes, has jumped off the German amateur circuit and arrived in Arizona to claim the second spot in the Wildcat ' s early lineup. What does her addition mean to a young and talented team in possibly the toughest conference in collegiate tennis? It means a legitimate shot at not only respectability in the Pac-10, but a chance for a very strong fmish. According to Arizona Head Coach Becky Bell, Arizona was probably the least respected team heading into Jan. 20ths Pac- 1 Indoor Championship in Seattle. In Schurhoff s first meet she not only made the fmals of the Flight No. 2 singles bracket, but she and Vicky Maes teamed up to win the Flight No. 1 doubles championship. Quite an accomplishment considering the duo had never played a match together before. It was even more impressive considering they defeated the UCLA team of Phebus and Stcirett who were ranked second in the preseason Rolex Regional Tennis S H B Rankings. " To go out there and compete like she did in 8 H ' S her first match was tremen- dous, " Coach Bell said, V yf l " Schurhoff showed that she ' s definitely for real. " j H Bell ' s recruiting again played a vital part in the j Hj addition of Schurhoff. She is well known among her | J H| players for her aggressive style oftennis and the fam- Hj HP S Y atmosphere she has worked so hard to foster. HjalH Arizona was suffering from depth problems with only six players at the beginning of the preseason.

The University of Arizona men ' s volleyball program has a successful volleyball tradition dating back well over ten years. In those ten years, this program had developed into a strong force among club teams, improving each year and gaining more popularity and support. The U of A had not only produced outstanding athletes, but have also been led by a talented group of coaches. In the past, such coaches as Rob Wilde, now the assistant coach of the National team and the UA women ' s assistant coach, Steve Carlat have coached the Arizona Men ' s volleyball team. This year the coaching staff was just as good. Head coach Keith Martin was dedicated to his team and associates himself with the sport in great lengths. The assistant coach. Skip Greenburg and Junior Varsity coach Julio Dones helped the U A team make a name for itself. The U A volleyball men ' s program attracted a wide selection on the athletic talent. This year ' s team was exploding with young talent. With six freshmen on the varsity team, four of which are starters, the UA volleyball program has only room for improvement.

What werf yoTi thinking? You live in CORONADO! You signed up for a fun-filled, sleepless year! While all dorms have a reputation for being noisy, Coronado is renowned for the clamor that its residents make. " I knew the dorms would be loud but I never thought it ' d be like this ! " Cinda Bomadieri said. Of course, taking the fact that Coronado houses the most people on campus into account, it isn ' t that surprising. With 900 college students just freed from their parents running around, it could be even louder. Along with sleep, you could forget study- ing.

Oh well, who wanted to know about the cognitive stages of de- velopment anyway? Even if a year in Coronado couldn ' t help your GPA, it could help your social life. Having friends and par- ties at your disposal 24-7 certainly made life more exciting. Homework paled in comparison. " It was an- noying not being able to get homework done, but it was a lot of fun having so many friends around all the time. There was always someone to talk to if you wanted too, " Tracey Lee said.

Several trips included going to Nogales to go shopping, seeing the comedian Adam Sandler, visiting the Reid Park Zoo, and Colorado Rockies games. The activities were arranged specifi- cally for students who, otherwise, would be trapped on campus.

Throughout the year, students saw the progress in the construction of the new La Paz Residence Hall. Students adapted to the construction of the $15.1 million dorm which was located in between the two dorms on Highland Avenue and East Sixth Street. Some anxiously awaited the completion of La Paz to move in and others could not wait simply to get away from the noise. Construction crews began work at 7am, which usually served as a student ' s morning wake-up call. " It was a pain in the butt, because they worked on Saturday, they worked early in the morning, and it always woke me up, " Apache- Santa Cruz resident Kate Speizer said. However, the noise of construction could be expected. When signing up for their choice of dorms, students were informed of the building of La Paz. Alongside Graham-Greenlee, which was built in 1952, and Apache-Santa Cruz, which was built in 1958, the new dorm will stand-out in its architectural design. The hall is modeled after North African and Middle Eastern architecture. It will include two large courtyards, open air corridors, a study " bridge " and study areas with lofts and skylights.

You live in a dorm and your roommate just finished the last Coke and bag of chips. What is one to do when the wallet does not provide for dining out and the living environment does not encourage one to make homemade gourmet entrees? This was the dilemma every dorm resident encountered. From cup ' o ' noodles, to nutri-grain bars, to the Snickers that always satisfies, students found ways to keep from starving. " I get bread and sandwich stuff and definitely Franco American ravioli. I also usually buy fruit, like bananas and grapes, " Maricopa resident Nicole Hernandez said. Dorms provided refrigerators, vending ma- chines and kitchens, however this was not as ben- eficial as it seemed. Refrigerators were often too small to store food. " We have these tiny little refrigerators for two people. The freezer is like an inch long and it will hardly hold anything, " Yoli Payan stated from Kaibab-Huachuca. Using the vending machines often proved to be a daring gamble. " Our vending machines always takes our money. I always hear people banging on them screaming ' Give me back my money! " Hernandez said. If digging through a congested refrigerator or punching out a vending machine was not an option, using the dorm kitchen was always a possibility. However, in between going to school studying and having a social life, students did not find the desire to become their own gourmet cooks. " Being a student I have no time to cook, so I usually buy bread, ham and cheese, " Gila resident Bianca Jimenez said.

She became so cJtperate that she stole holy water from her church and blessed various parts of the hall. " I figured the only way to combat the ghost was with God, " said the resident, who requested that her name not be used. " If it was evil, I figured we could get rid of it using holy water. " The Maricopa hall ghost has been seen or " felt " by more than a half-dozen residents since the beginning of the school year. A female apparition reportedly roams the all-women ' s residence hall in the wee hours of the night. The holy water did not work. Only priests have the power to " bless. " The resident continued to sleep with her Bible. " For two to three weeks, it was mass hysteria around here (Maricopa Hall), " said resident Brandi Hopkins, a freshman French major. " One thing happened right after an- other. People were really flipping out. " Hopkins is not afraid to sleep at night, she ' s just a night owl— one of those people who stays up all night and sleeps during the day. She said sometimes she pull consecutive " all-nighters " for upwards to a week. On one October all-nighter, Hopkins said she had a brush with the supernatural. She said she was walking around first floor of the hall in the early morning hours when she felt a " presence " — as if someone were watching her. The hair on the back of her neck stood up on end. From the corner of her eye she saw a young woman in a gray cloak, she said. " I thought that she probably doesn ' t mean any harm, but she was scaring the piss out of me, " said Hopkins. " I just wanted her to please go away. " Seconds later, the hairs on the back of her neck went down. Hopkins told a friend about the experience, but did not mention it again until an eerie residence hall meeting on the creepiest of holidays.

Pledging is what a potential Greek member does to be accepted into a sorority or fraternity. But what does pledging entail, exactly? Well, that depends on the particular sorority or fraternity. For Delta Delta Delta, their pledgeship lasts for 5 months. During this time, the pledges do various tasks for the members of the house and for the community. One particular sorority had their pledges wake up early in the morning to cook breakfast for all the active members of the house. For Shea Boulware, it is worth all the extra work. Shea commented, " There is al- • . . ways something to do and you can always find someone to help you with your homework. " The difference be- tween an active member and a pledge is simple. A pledge has no voting rights and cannot live in the house. For some houses it is not customary for a pledge to talk back or be late to any of the houses activities. An unknown pledge commented that " during your pledge time you basically kiss-up to the active members of the house.

PHILANTHROPIES TiHim Kappa Kappa Gamma is a sorority of women that starts in college but continues through a lifetime. More often than not, the paths of our newest sisters cross those who have held Kappa dear for many decades. Not to long ago a new Spring member spent a Saturday afternoon going door-to-door throughout a local neigh- borhood collecting cans for a community philanthropy. She identifies herself as a member of our sorority to the gentleman at the door and found him delighted that she was a Kappa. He shared the special story of his recently deceased wife, an avid alumni of Kappa Kappa Gamma. The young woman was privileged to a tour of a room full of Kappa memorabilia collected for over 40 years as an alumni. Each key, music box, and mug had its own special anecdote which drew a picture of the love and loyalty that his wife had had for Kappa Kappa Gamma. As the young member said good-bye, she realized that she had shared a part of a very special women through a sisterhood that connected not only the two of them, but the thousands of women proud to bear the name of member in the sorority of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Sigma Kappa has been very busy with their philanthropies and various other activities. At National Convention this summer, we were presented with many awards. These included 1 00% Reporting, Quota, Membership Total and Outstanding Scholarship Program Awards. But the biggest accomplish- ment we were presented with was the National Council Trophy for 15+ sororities which is only given to one chapter in the entire nation. j Aside from participating in local philanthropies, we are also in-j volved in activities for our national philanthropies. Alzheimer ' s Disease is our biggest philanthropy which we sponsored the annual Memory Walk and sold lollipops to raise money. This year we raised over $8,600 for Alzheimer ' s Disease research, which was more than any other contribution. We have also been involved in many non-alcoholic functions such as sisterhood functions and dinner exchanges. j Pi Beta Phi had an exciting semester in the Spring. Socially, we had a father daughter weekend on February 1 7th. This was followed by our big spring formal ' Beaux and Arrows ' on the 25th As for inter-greek realtions, we had four dinner exchanges planned with various sororities and fraternities on campus. We also have quite a few philanthropies this semester. Some women worked at the Bowl-A-Thon benefiting Big Brothers and Big Sisters. We also participated in the annual Block Party with four other sororities in order to ben- efit the American Cancer Society, as well as our ongoing philanthropies Links to Literacy and Arrowmont Settlement School. We also started up an AAA ser- vice where women will be standing by the house every Thursday, Friday, and Satur- day in order to provide a safe ride home to other Pi Phi ' s who need it.

Every other year, 2-3 delegates from each local chapter gather together with delegates from other parts of the na- tion for a week-long convention. What they do at the conference depends on the particular sisterhood or brother- hood. For example. Alpha Chi Omega discussed their new-member policy. Some members felt that having a semester-long pledge period was too Coming together to discuss new ways to do things and to be recog- nized for their efforts long. Having such a long period, they argued, promoted hazing activities. One solution to this was to shorten the pledge period to only 6-10 weeks. At a conference, there will also be workshops held for the new officers. In these workshops, the officers are trained on what they need to do and what is expected of them as an offi- cer. Along with workshop there is an awards ceremony. This ceremony rec- ognizes different chapters for the work they have done. There are awards for having the most members, outstand- ing charity contributions, public relations and others. For any chapter it is a true honor to be recognized at their national level. •4 .j» NATIONAL CONFERENCES B Alpha Omicron Pi coordinates a philanthropy each year to sLipportour international philanthropy, Arthritis Research. Philanthropies are apositive working example of our caring. We have given almost $1 million for the purpose of research of this crippling disease. For the past two years, the women have organized a 5-on-5 Basketball Challenge that the Greek community, the campus, and the community are invited to participate and compete. The chapter has been recognized by the Arthritis Foundation ' s Distinguished Serv ice Award for our support. Besides organizing our own philanthropy, the women of Alpha Omicron Pi participate in other philanthro- pies sponsored by the Greek community or other groups around the University of Arizona. The Deltii Chapter of Kappa Delta Chi was founded on November 9, 1991 on campus. After two years, they were officially recognized by the Panhellenic Association in the Fall of 1 993 as the first-Hispanic founded sorority on campus. Kappa Delta Chi ' s primary focus is on both community service and academics. Their community service activities include: Project YES, the Boys and Girls Club and the Mariachi Conference. The women of Kappa Delta Chi also enjoy social events such as their Annual Founder ' s Banquet, Spring Fling, and Homecoming, as well as actively participating in intramural sports. They hope to enjoy many more years to come on campus. Zeta Tau Alpha was founded in Farmville, Virginia in 1898. The Kappa Delta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha was founded at the University of Arizona in 1990. Since 1990, the chapter has undergone many changes. The newest of which is the aquisition of a house. Zeta Tau Alpha has gotten the opportunity to live in their new house since the Fall of 1993. The national philanthropy of Zeta Tau Alpha is the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. This was chosen as the national philanthropy because of the impact breast cancer can have on women. As a women ' s organization, Zeta Tau Alpha felt that it was necessary to aid other women in awareness and research in something that strikes women. The chapter trav elled to Phoenix this fall to help with the Race for the Cure to raise money for research and to increase breast cancer aware ness.

The Panhellenic Association officially recognized Kappa Delta Chi in 1993 as the first Hispanic founded sorority on campus. Sigma Gamma Rho also re- ceived recognition from the National Pan-Hellenic Council in 1995. La.stly, 1995 also welcomed Gamma Alpha Omega, the second Hispanic-founded sorority on campus. With origins so deeply rooted, the well known characteristics of crests, mottos, mascots, symbols, and chants continued strongly. Traditions were cel- ebrated year after year due to decades of practicing the same valued customs. Crossing the Threshold. As a part of tradition, new members of Alpha Omicron Pi are carried into their house by already active members.

On January 16, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha became the first Negro-founded Greek letter sorority. Soon after, Delta Sigma Theta was founded in 1913 and finally Zeta Phi Beta in 1920. Alpha Kappa Alpha was organized " to cultivate and encourage high scholas- tic and ethical standards, improve the social status of the race, promote unity and friendship among college women, and keep alive within the alumnae an interest in college life and progressive movements emanating therefrom. " With this purpose in mind, the Promote unity and friendship among ollege men and women organization has now gone on to sponsor such civil activities as annual scholarships for high schools girls and local health programs throughout the U.S. and Africa. Zeta Phi Beta was founded as a sister organization to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity with the objectives of finer womanhood, sisterly love, and scholarship. ZOB has brought together women from all parts of the country with similar tastes and aspira- tions, similar potentials for highest attain- ments, and similar desires for concerted action which will bring results in remov- ing or blocking movements intended to retard their growth and progress, especially in the field of academic and literary attainments. ampussoinestiKJ iventlieoppomii m fctswenuiii m ng lr.

The downfall of Delta Chi marked a sore point in the ending of a house and the tradition that began seventy years ago. Delta Chi was founded in 1890 and was established on the UA campus in 1925. Although the fall of one shook the Greek society, it was but only a ripple. Many fraternities began with the idea of brotherhood and fellowship, to be together in a social atmosphere, to develop vital social, spiritual and leadership skills through active participation to aid themselves through life. Their birth varies from one to another. Some fraternities are but infants compared to others who have been around since the Civil War. Meanwhile, others wished only to be part of the system and be recognized by the Greeks. Many fraternities emphasize community service and helping out the less-fortunate. Fraternities such as Alpha Phi Alpha devoted their time in guiding teenagers from high school to the college level. Their role as both mentors and tutors displayed their care for the younger generation and the future leaders. Many other fraternities have a tradition of helping the community; their services includes the Girls and Boys Club, Cancer Run, the Red Cross, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Tucson, and many more. The traditions of the fraternities will always be upheld and will be carried throughout their years. United by friendship, sustained by honor, and led by truth, we live and flourish.

The brothers at the U of A chapters are currently working hard in the community, as they host national programs such as Go-To-High-School Go-To-College symposium and Project Alpha. This community work is seen also as they work as mentors and tutors at local high schools, with an advisory sponsorship role with the Catalina High School Black Culture Club. The brothers of AOA are also in many leadership roles on campus as they serve as president of A AS A, president of NPHC, and chairmen of many committees on the U of A campus.

Guide Right, Kappa Alpha Psi ' s national philanthropy, is a movement to provide youth with leadership and development opportunities year round.

The three founders felt the need of a fraternity that was based on brotherhood , scholarship, and service. These ideals are expressed in the fraternity ' s motto, " Culture for service and service for humanity. " The chapter of Phi Beta Sigma on campus was colonized in the spring of 1 990. Based on community service, individual chapters of Phi Beta Sigma chose which philanthropies it will support with it ' s time and effort.

INTERFRATERNITY RUSH L One of the most important events in the Alpha Tau Omega fiaternity during the school year is being involved with the Spring Fling carnival. Spring Fling gives us a chance to give something back to the whole community of Tucson. We do many other charitable events throughout the year, but those only reach a small percentage of the population. What makes Sping Fling so special to us is that it combines the students and the University to give something back to the city that we spend our college years in. We take an extreme amount of pride in preparing for Spring Fling with countless hours of building our set for the entertainment tent, and practicing our skit over and over to make sure that everything is perfect. All the hard work and endless hours pays off when Sping Fling opens and hudreds of little children look up to you in amazement when do a skit. We feel that we set an example for these kids with our participation, and hopefully it will influence their lives in one way or another. And what makes Spring Fling so special is that all proceeds that we make we donate to local charities around the city. Spring Fling is one of the only times in the year that the community sees the greek system in a different light. Beta Theta Pi was feunded at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, its first formal meeting being held August 8, 1839.

In 1 924, the fraternity celebrated at its annual congress in Chicago, the centennial of the founding of the Chi Phi Society at Princeton in 1 824, the 70th anniversary of the founding of its oldest undergraduate existing chapter at Franklin and Marshall College, and the semicentennial of the union of the Northern and Southern Orders.

The original Kappa Sigma was a secret organization at the University of Bologna in Italy. It was founded originally for protection against the corrupted governor of the city in 1400. The idea soon spread throughout universities in Europe and eventually to America, where it was combined with the idealism of Thomas Jefferson. Kappa Sigma was established at the University of Virginia sasters or epidemics. For example, Phi Kappa Psi was founded in Cononsburg, Pennsylv ania on Feb- ruary 19, 1852. There was an outbreak of typhoid fever that winter that struck the town and college. A group of men tended the sick and after many days of doing selfless labor the men formed a bond and was inspired to form a fraternity based on this broth- erhood and its purpose would be to express the highest standard of broth- erhood. Every fraternity has its beginning whether it is for political reasons or charity they all have one thing in Other fraternities originated from natural di- common, brotherhood. TRADITIONS AND ORIGINS The Zeta-BetaChapfterof Lambda Chi Alpha continues to increase its nieml ersiiip with an emphasis on developing the well rounded indi- vidual. Lambda Chi Alpha stands to supplement our members education at the University of Arizona with opportunities to broaden their lead- ership skills. In an effort to strengthen our fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha was the first social organization to abolish hazing by creating the associate member program. It is through! the consistent adherence to this policy that we remaini focused on the positive aspects to gained by member- ship in a fraternity. Our continued efforts to give back to thei community are exemplified by our annual Water- melon Bust philanthropy. With the assistance of alii the houses on campus, we have been able to raise over 1 00,000 pounds of non-perishable foods for the needy citizens of Tucson. Watermelon Bust has grown to be the larges t fraternity-run philanthropy in Arizona. With an average of 15,000 pounds of food raised annually we have been able to make a significant impact in our community. Omega Delta Phi was founded nationally in 1 987 and was brought to the University of Arizona in 1 989. ODPhi also has the distinction of being the first traditionally Hispanic Frater- nity with approximately 75% of its 65 members boasting Hispanic heritage. " As first and forem ost a fraternity, the only way we can grow, succeed, and help the Hispanic Community is to help our members develop many of the skills and tools they will need as successful professionals. Then the ODPhi graduate is better able and willing to return to the community what the community gave him, " says President Mike Tellez. Each active and pledge is required to do 3 short term public service hours a semester and one long term. The long term usually consists of tutoring a couple of hours a week at one of three elementary schools, Carrillo, Ochoa, or Davis. Other projects have included the Boys and Girls Club, La Frontera, KUAT, APEX, TMC, Angel Charities, and various Hispanic Alumni Association projects. " Our first goal is building a strong brotherhood, " says Tel lez, " That is the base from which everything else proceeds. " Omega Delta Phi does not mold its members, but helps them grow as unique individuals. Carlos Contreras, a founder, is convinced that, " ODPhi men are bom, not made. All we do is find them, or sometimes they find us. " Phi Delta Theta was founded at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, December 26, 1848, by Robert Morrison, 1849; John McMillan Wilson, 1 849; Roberst Thompson Drake, 1 850; John Wolfe Lindley, 1850; Ardivan Walder Rodgers, 1851; and Andrew Watts Rogers, 1 85 1 . Morrison first proposed the orga- nization to Wilson, andthey were joint authors of " The Bond of the Phi Delta Theta, " a statement of the principles of the fraternity which has never been changed.

However, thanks to Panhellenic and the Interfratemity Council a state of mass chaos was never seen at the University of Arizona. This was in part due to the various conferences set up throughout the year to help each chapter run smoothly. Each year, conferences bring all the campus chapters together to participate in various workshops. These workshops are all geared to helping each chapter run smoother. Topics range from conferences for specific officers such as scholarship or finance, to conferences for chapter presidents " already see more involvement by younger members in the greek system. " -Anna Scoyoc Acting Greek Life Coordinator dealing with crisis and time management. In the spring, a conference is held for younger members. This year, for the first time, the members were taken off campus for the weekend. Greek Life Coordinator, Anna Van Scoyoc felt the weekend was a success. " I already see more involvement by younger members in the greek system, applying for more positions and getting involved off campus as well.

INTRAMURALS Sigma Alpha Eta at the University of Arizona is thriving. The 125 are a close-nit group, very active in the community and on campus. Nationally, Sigma Alpha Epsilon has always been strong. Similarly, the Arizona Alpha chapter has been very successful here. The members have a good working relationship with our alumni. They are crucial to the smooth function of the house, and very helpful. ZAE alumni are active in the Tucson community as well. Chapter members complete for the Uof A in baseball, football and water polo. The members work hard to compete in athletics each year. Al Aa Miiwas fiftinded at the City College (frTNew York in 1909 and was then chartered at the University of Arizona. The member fraternity placed an increasing em- phasis on participation in community affairs. " Sammies, " as they are affectionately known, show their support of the concerns of their national ZAM fraternity. The members are also athletically inclined. Fi Kappa AIpHa members creatively modified their climates to suit their partying mood. Besides generously dispensing party favors. Pikes were service-oriented. Fraternity members also pursued athletic endeavors by participating in campus intramural sports. PKA, one of the top eight chapters, based on national opinion polls, boasted many nationally known alumni, like Fess Parker, (TV ' s Daniel Boone). One of the largest chapters in the nation.

Sigma Phi Epsilon continues to be one of the top houses on campus with regards to philanthropy. Located at 1420 North Vine Street. Sigma Phi Epsilon, winner of the blood drive for the second straight year, has made strong efforts to help our surrounding community. When six members of our house went to the medical center to read to sick children, one of our members called it, " an enlightening experience. " Members of our fraternity helped out at the Ronald McDonald House for children. For the holidays, we didn ' t forget our community either. In addition to delivering food for needy families during Thanksgiving, the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is collecting clothing for the poor around Christmas time. Always active in Intramurals, " Sig Ep " , as members call it, was victorious in the first annual Alpha Omicron Pi basketball tournament. Sig Ep is also active in football, basketball, soccer, and volleyball to name a few. Sig Ep also participates annually in the bike-a-thon between U.C.L.A. and Arizona for the football game. Al.so for our members to be involved in the Cedric Dempsey mn for cancer is considered to be an honor. With members of our fraternity on the football team and baseball team, just being in a fraternity is not what we strive for. We have the IFC treasurer, a member of J-Board, as well as the president of the Young Economic Society in our house. Sig Ep is always in the running for the man power award for being one of largest greek hoases on campus. At Sigma Phi Epsilon, we believe in the Balanced Man, someone who reaches excellence in not only grades, but someone who also teaches excellence outside of the classroom. We, at Sig Ep give away the Balanced Man scholarship to any incoming freshman who meets the requirement of a balanced man. So a Hoase active in Philanthropy. Intramural, and one that rewards excellence is one not commonly found and that is what Sigma Phi Epsilon at Arizona stands for and believes in. SOCIALS Tail Beta Eta is not currently on campus this year but will be back next year in a house and recognized by the Uni- versity once again. Members of this fra- ternity have contributed greatly to the University in the past in athletics and philantrophies around campus. With a dedicated President, this fraternity will be actively recruit- ing members next year to make this house rec- ognized on campus once again. The men of Zeta BetaTau have had an extremely suc- cessful year. In the spring semester, nine new members, who seem to be great men, were initiated. They have a member running for Vice President of student govern- ment and have many other members involved around campus. The chapter par- ticipated in numerous philanthropiaes over the se- mester, like in pervious years, and enjoyed Spring Fling with Delta Delta Delta.

Tom Goss served as an advisor, teacher, mentor and friend to students at Alhambra High School promoting the value of hard work, dedication and appreciation of others. Goss, who was named Dean of Student Government Advisors, retired after almost thirty years of serving as an inspiration to others. One to remember. Amber Messner impressed all of those who had the fortunate opportunity to work with her. Amber ' s vision, drive and determination was overshadowed only by her kindness and her ability to lead others as a friend rather than an authority. A heart of gold. Frustration over her college Chemistry professor ' s incompetence motivated Coleen Roth to pursue her own teaching career to prove that education shouldn ' t be difficult. She taught at colleges and junior colleges before coming to Alhambra High School in 1973. In the span of 22 years, she has not only professed the science of Chemistry but the importance of generosity and understanding. Simply the best. After being forced to leave her home in Vietnam, Chuyen Pham fled to the United States in 1975. Since that time, she has raised four children as a single mother and has been the model of strength of will, the pursuit of excellence and pure selflessness. Thanks, Mom! E PILOGUE I ' aime les douleurs. Philosophy and Physics sophomore Frank Nguyen attacks the climb up Trail ' s End in the Tucson Mountains. Nguyen, a veteran of five yearbooks, also attacked his first Desert editorship this year, his third overall, after Iwing selected by the Board of Student Publications during the spring of 1994. Photo by Aaron J. Latham. The Annual Joi, It was all a big mistake. Six years ago when 1 entered high school, my counselor had made a big mistake. Not only was I registered in pre-algebra, low- life English and remedial reading, but my schedule also said that my sixth hourclass was some God-awful thing called " Yearbook " . Too bad I never learn from mistakes. After three good yearbooks and one disaster, I sit here in subdued elation over the fact that the book that you now hold in your hand is one that I am not ashamed to call " great " (well, at least arguably great). It is undeniable, though, that the staff of the 1 995 Desert has been the best staff that I ' ve ever had the fortunate opportunity to work with. Never have I been associated with a more talented group of individuals. Never have I had the opportunity to guide such a group of individuals and trust them enough to produce a book of the standard that they have produced. Unfortunately, the only ' reward ' I can offer is my eternal appreciation. So Andrea, Ben, Brent, Carmen, Caroline, Cliff, Daryl, Elena, Greta, Iman, Liz, Lupe, Najah, Nathan, Nhan, Valerie and everyone else that I have not forgotten but have just failed to remember, thank you! Equal thanks must go to all the people outside of our staff who have contributed to our efforts. Everyone in the Department of Student Publi- cations has provided tremendous support. Specifi- cally, 1 must thank Mark Wixxlhams for allowing our student publications to be produced by students . In my opinion, very few people appreciate this privilege. For me, though, this autonomy has always been a fundamental necessity in producing a suc- cessful yearbook-a privilege which I have not al- ways been given. Faith and Linda deserve special thanks for: a) putting up with the turmoil that the yearbook has been subjected to over the years, b) putting up with me, and c) keeping up with my bizarre and unending requests. By the way, I need to change the payroll again and can we get some chimichangas, too? The Jostens team has also been instrumental in helping to get The Desert back on its feet. A special thanks goes to Bob MuIIer and Susan George (again). 1 don ' t choose my loyalties blindly, and I ' m glad that they have once again l)een justified. Unfortunately, apathy towards The Desert has been rampant for the past few years. In fact, this general attitude runs across campus and all the way to the board which is supposed to support it. In this light, perhaps the person which I should really thank is you. Admittedly, in recent years the University of Arizona has not had the caliber of yearbook which it perhaps should have. However, it does not deserve such a publication unless individu- als such as yourself .support it. Thanks!
