One could purchase parking per- mit for the year starting at $125. To pay daily it was $1.25 an hour at a parking garage or $0.25 every 15 minutes at a meter. Pholo by Kristin Giordano To avoid parking prob- lems, many students rode their bikes which also helped them travel between classes. The annual Spring Fling was a major event.

Reimisch MUDDY AND WINNING THE GAME t fuCi OHilyt : pron. tT dlfioyi or d nrcei- Defending the honor of a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation, junior Tiamo De Vettori asserted, " I Uke to see Homecoming as a celebration. I see it as students and the community all revolving around the U of A and taking a day, just like Thanksgiving, to give thanks for being a student here. " Meanwhile, sophomore Michael Herman stated, " I don ' t care about Homecoming. I am not a fan of football at all, and Homecoming is just another football game. " Or is it? Homecom- ing evolved into a ritual extrava- ganza including a pep-rally bonfire and pre-Homecoming mall events. During the parade that has been at the core of UA festivities since 1929, smiling crowds watched as eighty- two floats circled the mall. De Vettori commented, " We ' ve been doing it every year, and every year it ' s huge. On Homecoming Day after the parade, 1 just feel so proud to be a U of A student, and that ' s what it ' s all about. " Whether symbolic pageantry or overrated fun, frolicking Greeks and honorary club members fought in a pit of mud to be able to claim that they won the tug- of-war. At the culmination of the pep-rally, anxious spectators watched as Dee Dee Buzzi and Fai Mo were crowned as Queen and King before a stack of wooden pallets was sacrificed to the tradition gods. Scratching the UCLA Bruins in the face, the Wild- cats clawed to the top of the football food-chain and carved out a 35-17 victory. Homecoming, with all of its associated rituals and traditions, lived on. Homecoming Phoic by Andrew R. Reimisch Dave ' s Big Deluxe performed during the week before Homecom ing.

By defeating the defending national champion Kentucky, 84-79, the men ' s basketball team ended it ' s season with glory. Miles Simon, junior guard, commenting about winning said, " We ' re here now, w e ' re not a year aw ay. 1 think w e w ent into the Final Four w ith an advantage, w e didn ' t have a care in the world. " The team not only won the championship, but on the w ay they beat three number one seeds. This was the first time any team accomplished this feat. They beat North Carolina, Kan- sas and finally Kentucky w ho w as favored to w in the title. The last game w as close all the w ay through. In the final minutes of the game, Kentucky made two amazing three-point- ers which tied them with UA and pushed the game into overtime. In overtime it w as soon apparent that UA was going to win. UA outscored UK within the first four minutes of overtime. Then Miles Simon hit two free throws pushing the score up to 82-76 w ith only 41.7 seconds to go. Each hit one more basket, Kentucky ' s a three pointer , but it w asn ' t enough to put them over the top.

However, this is not stop- ping many students from rushing out there to get a tattoo. But how does one decide to get a tattoo? Where do they go and what do they get? Laura Gubler, political science major, shares her experience in the quest for the perfect tattoo. " I was a sophmore when I got my tattoo. I wanted to get something special and unique, " explained Laura. Being a lover of art, she decided to get a tattoo of a favorite painting. It was a painting by Pable Picasso. " The most difficult decision was deciding where I should put the tattoo. 1 wanted to put it some place where it wouldn ' t be seen if I had to go to a job interview and it also had to be somewhere that wouldn ' t stretch if I ever got pregnant. It would be stupid to get a tatto and have it all stretched out so you couldn ' t tell what it was anymore. " said Laura. The tattoo found its permanant home right above her leg but below her stomach. Deciding where to get her tattoo was another important deci- sion that had to be made. Laura decided to go to The Enchanted Dragaon. They were known their sterile equipment and fun atmosphere. " It was a big party. A couple of my friends went with me and another lady was getting a tattoo on her butt so I wasn ' t self-conscious about being half-naked. Everyone was joking and laughing and just having a real good time. It was definatly worth the pain and money. " explained Laura. The tattoo took about two hours to complete and was $80.

It was a rare occasion to not see a group or indi- vidual person set up on the mall with a table or two. Often the purpose was either to sell some type of merchandise, to get students to join a club, or to expand the knowl- edge of students with information. The activities varied from music groups, speakers, and other performers to different types of ii|y ff ■ festivities and fairs. Fairs, such as Photo by Lindsey Gullett This event let student the Sports Illustrated Campus Fest, become sumo wrestlers he Off Campus Housing Fair, the for a day. It was one or t the more popular Craft Fair, and the NBA Jam Ses- events. sion, were held on a regular basis Some of the more informational events were the Human Rights Day, the Volunteer Fair, the Rape Awareness Week, and the National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. A twenty-four hour vigil was held in November to remember the POWs and MIAs. Another vigil was held for the remembrance of the Holo- caust. Some of the events, like tailgate parties, helped inspire Wildcat Spirit. The Blood Drive Challenge in October pitted U of A against ASU. And spirit was shown by the collecting of cans in November. The goal was to get enought cans to go around Old Main. Even without a planned event or activity on the mall, there were always students around. They gathered to meet friends, sit and relax, or study for their next class. It was guaran- teed that something was happening on the mall every day.

" Spring Fling was the largest student run carnival in the United States and also the largest campus carnival in the country. It featured over 60 fund-raising booths involv- ing over 100 organizations.

Theta Tau offered Desert Paintball. " Muppets Strike Back " was performed by Sigma Kappa and Kappa Alpha. On Saturday alone, the clubs netted a total of $35,214. The carnival got off to a slow start on Thursday. Attendance was low and the carnival closed three and a half hours early because of rain. The pace picked up on Friday as people flooded in to enjoy Ray Cammack Shows rides. Musical groups Atomic Frog, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Pet the Fish played on the Maloney ' s Mainstage. Sunday was Dollar Day: $1 gate admission and $1 rides. " I thought Spring Fling was exciting even though it was a little bit pricey. The carnival was a good way to forget that it ' s school and pretend it was our own amusement park, " said Valerie Miller. 14 Campus Life 1 ■iii Phoio by Kristin Giordano In addition to rides like the Slide there were also many places for one to play games and get food. Each booth was organized by a university club as a fundraiser. Photo by Andrew Reimisch One of the most popu- lar rides was the Ferris Wheel.

This exhibit only lasted from Nov. 3 to Jan. 13, but demonstrated the continuous chain of tradition connecting the hispanic past w ith its future. " The Unbroken Chain " was the result of four years of re- search and planning by Jim Griffith, member of the Library ' s Southwest Folklore Center, Peter Briggs, Curator of Collections at the Museum of Art, and Direc- tor, Peter Bermingham. Their goal w as to feature the aesthetic expression of Arizona ' s Mexican culture w hich they achieved through the display of authentic needlew ork, home alters, hand-made boots, decorative ironwork, murals, pinatas, w ood workings, furniture, and the countless other items which make up life in the American Southwest. The exhibit, organized into three sections: El hogar (the home). El taller (the w orkshop), and La comunidad (the community), successfully represented the craftsmanship of los Tucsonenses, or the Mexican- Americans of Tucson. It demonstrated the importance of culture and community and the exacting standards of the strong artisan tradition of these people. In addition, the display reminded visitors that the word " traditional " did not only mean static and un- changed but also meant the continuation with the past and of the importance of cultural preservation.

Pliers and gloves were necessary for the job. With the new age of piercing, came new tools, no more painless little guns. With the appropriate tools Hugh Merry can pierce nearly anything. Sterilization is a top priority for Merry. He works to maintain the best piercing facility. f holo i ' v Andrew Reimisch An eyebrow is one of the most painful things to pierce because there is very little cartilage there. This didn ' t stop people from getting the procedure done. Campus Life i pf- c r y nCerk yHt i " HqLes ADDED ALL OVER OUR BODIES it is in a vice grip may not sound like fun, but this and other body piercings were popular among students all across the country. Of course a decade ago you would have never even witnessed this phenomena because, at that time, piercing started and ended with ears. In the 90 ' s it moved onto a whole new genre that left ears behind. Carla Reese noted, " My piercing makes me feel like an individual. It makes me a little bit different than the next guy, and if I don ' t want to look different I can just take it out. It ' s unique but it is not irreversible. " From tongues to noses to nipples, nothing was left out by people who got into piercing. Most people chose to go to professsionals where cleanliness and sterilization were the most important factors. One such professional was Hugh Merry. Some of his main concerns in the body piercing industry were that people got good piercings that did not get infected easily or cause more pain than necessary. Since piercings were not permanent, they could be removed if desired. Angela Corsiglia said, " I got my nose pierced when I was a freshman. I really liked it then but now, as I get a little bit older, I want people to take me seriously. I don ' t think many piercings are associated with maturity. " Some people were cool under pressure and didn ' t have any trouble getting punctured, others were reluctant to subject themselves to this torture. " It is really neat, but I just couldn ' t stomach it.. " Greg Swann said. Photo by Laura Polhill The " bull " look of getting a nose ring through one ' s septum was popular. This nice gentleman also chose to pierce his tongue. Dioto by Charles LaBenz Body Piercing 19 Photo by Lindsey Cullett Chasing the earth ball are members of differ- ent dorms.

For Valentine ' s Day, Gila residents made cards to give to the elderly. The dormitory also partici- pated in an event called " Take A Faculty To Lunch " where resi- dence hall members took professors out to lunch as a sign of appreciation. Gila sponsored fun- filled events for its residents such as slumber parties in the T.V. lounge and wing dinners. Other dorms on campus offered entertainment for their members as well. Coconino, another all female dorm, held a " sex bowl " with the all male dorm Chochise where residents of both dorms were given the opportunity to question each other on the issue of sexual awareness. Yuma, one of the honors halls, put on a haunted house for Halloween where they accepted canned food donations as admission. Kaibab- Huachuca sponsored " Christmas in April " . Residents went and did fix up work such as painting and cleaning a house for a family who could not afford to hire help. Every dormitory was required to put on programs dealing with issues such as rape and alcohol awareness to inform students on the different issues they might find at college. " Rape 101 " and " Alcohol Myths and Reali- ties " were two events featured this year. Guest speakers visited the dorms and provided information to residents regarding these two topics. Dorm Daze was another activity that involved people living in the dorms. Students were able, over a period of ten days, to participate in activities such as soccer, leap frog, and world ball. Dorm living gave students a wide range of fun things to get relief from the everyday stresses of college.

David J. Glassman, assistant director of Sigma Nu Fraternity Inc., said the organization hoped " to eliminate the threat of alcohol as a factor in fraternity related injuries and incidents " . The president of the UA chapter, James Hurwitz, said the policy is working out w ell. He said positive results definitely could be seen the first semester. jj,g Greek system. " We have a better response from the parents. The alumni like it. And I have found it easier to study without the parties, " Hurwitz said. He had not heard of any other UA fraternity houses planning on going substance-free. The international Sigma Nu organization " is looking at our chapter to see how w e do, as we are leading the way tow ards all chapter houses going substance-free, " said member Jeffery Fasset. He s aid the limits of the policy were tested over Homecoming. Recent graduates were not aware of the change and wanted to bring alcohol to the house.

The bags had notes attached that explained the food drive and told what foods w ere most needed. Volunteers collected filled bags on Saturday morning. The bags were then transported by United Parcel Service trucks. Ap- proximately 24,300 pounds of food was gathered and given to the Community Food Bank. About 40 students helped distribute and collect bags. Stu- dents from the Latter-day Saints Institute, Wards 3 and 4, and the Campus Christian Center were responsible for covering a neigh- borhood. Sarah E. Brown, a veterinary sciences sophomore, organized the UA part of the drive. Before the pound total was reported she said, " I have a feeling it went well. " Added Scott R. Smith, an aerospace engineering graduate student who worked with Brown in the planning, " We want this to be bigger and bigger each year and involve more groups. " Volunteer Bryan R. Harris, a mechanical engineering freshman, said, " It was fun to be able to go out and do something like this. It makes me feel good.

There were annual campus tourna- ments in chess, 8-ball billiards and table tennis. Students en- joyed the arcade games, pool tables, ping pong tables, pinball machines, foozball and air hockey. There was no other area on campus that offered so many activities for students to enjoy while hanging out and being themselves. Sam ' s Place was convenient because it was in the heart of the university where students could take a quick break between lectures. " I come for the arcade games between class, and often lose track of time when playing the pinball machines, " said junior Masayoshi Tsukioka. Sam ' s Place appealled to both the high school crowd and parents when they came to tour the campus. " I always see Sam ' s Place crowded and full of people, even on the weekends. This place invites everyone and that is why I come, " said junior Sean Sleight. 2£ Campus Life Photo by Andrew Reimisch ■ J Photo hi Andrew Reimisch Video games were popular at Sam ' s.

" It all started when we moved in, recalled freshman Vin Keenan. " Our phones were wired by last year ' s residents so the calls for the entire wing would be forwarded to one room. " Not only did the 2SW wingmates quickly become friends, they kept the prank legacy going strong. " What have we done? " asked Keenan. " It ' s more of a question of what haven ' t we done! " Stories abounded of taking Polaroids of people in the shower and kicking cereal under the R.A.

Normally the " A " would have been painted on the day of the first home football game, but this year it was changed to the day of the U of A vs. ASU game. " I think having the ' A ' day on the day of the ASU game was more exciting, it made me feel really excited about the game. Our " A ' was looking nice for all the Sundevil to see, " said Krissy Allen, freshman. Although the traditional date was changed the tradition was not. The construction of the " A " on Sentinel Peak began in 1915 and the first " A " day was celebrated on March 4th, 1916, when it was com- pleted. Since then the Blue Key Honorary has sponsered the event making sure the freshman class painted the " A " each year, although without fail more paint ended up on the participants and the road than on the " A " . " I don ' t know, they must have done a pretty weird job this year bedcause the ' A ' has been green all year. I wish I would have been there just to know why the ' A ' is green, " said Nhan Ly, senior. Not only was the " A " on Sentinal Peak a reminder of the U of A ' s spirit, it was also part of a game between the U of A and ASU to see who could get away with painting the other school ' s " A. " in the wrong school colors. " Since I have been here, our " A " has never been painted by ASU. I know that their ' A ' has been painted a few times by U of A students . . . just another victory for us! " said Ryan Clark, junior. Wildcat pride always prevails!

The foyer in Maricopa was a nice place to get together with friends and talk. It was an elegant setting for informal discussions.

Fires are not allovsred in hall, but it added to the ambiance. 36 Campus Life T dt t icer MARICOPA ' S ANNIVERSARY A cross the tAresA-eCA e " yH Ticepn is to tf transported into a past dimension, a dimension 75 years in the making. Spacious entry ways and crystal chandeliers welcome the traveler and yield a proud grand piano located in the main lounge. With its shiny black lid half-opened it winks, and if passed by, seems to say " your loss " as its keys strike up big-band sounds of the Roaring Twenties as a last incitement. Though Maricopa is U o f A ' s smallest dormitory, its petiteness is not apparent when inside; its history and character is encompassing. First proposed by university President Arthur Herbert Wilde in 1914 and completed seven years later, Maricopa is U of A ' s oldest resi- dence hall. It was refurbished in 1968 and again in 1992, but still exhibits original features such as private vanities with sinks, sleeping porches and an architecturally unique facade. Not long after the last renovation, however, whispers of en- counters of the spiritual kind began to circulate throughout the hall. A friendly " trickster ghost " is said to roam the dorm at night and is thought to be the unsettled spirit of a past resident who committed suicide after her love was unrequited. Seven residents have reportedly seen, felt or heard this ghost and compare her to the portrait of a young maiden hanging in the dorm ' s piano lounge. Although this portrait is really a reprint of the 1795 Sir Thomas Lawrence painting, " Pinkie " , the young woman ' s spirit lives on in the hearts of many Maricopans. Perhaps like the dorm in which she lives, this spirit too has a story to tell. Photo b j Anidiida Parks Residents associate this painting with the ghost of the hall. The haunt- ing is one of the oldest myths at the university. Photo by Amanda Parks Maricopa 37 Getting mail can be the highlight of the day for a college student.

In addition to an unparalleled history, Cochise was character- ized by its multicolumned facade, newly refurnished " lodge- type " entry, and the most unique residence hall room style set-up the University of Arizona had to offer. Sponsored by RHA and hall government, " Cafe Cochise " was an additional way in which the dormitory reinforced its feeling of community.

Basic Assumption , a college band lead by freshman Justin Martinez, also fits that catagory. Justin Martinez, brother Darric Martinez and friend Jim Kober, started Basic Assumption in 1994. J. Martinez, who wrote all the music and vocals, had played guitar for five years. " Everything ' s original, " J. Martinez explained. " We all put in our own ideas and it just comes together. " With D.

Most of our music is about revolution and peace. We play just the way we see things. " The heavy and melodic songs have told their own story about the world and how peace is the answer to society ' s problems. " I guess I used to be pretty angry, " J. Martinez admitted. " Now I just see things that need to be changed ... so many things are going wrong. " Although they empha- sized change they went about it differently than some other groups.

To the surprise of the plane advocates, money instead went into cars. Four problems hampered personal plane produc- tion for years. Personal planes exposed manufacturers to unlim- ited liability until laws were changed in 1995. They require expert pilots. They do not provide portal to portal transportation, meaning you cannot go from your house to the local grocery store. And they are expensive. Engineers want to help solve those problems with the invention of a vehicle that can be trans- formed from a car to a plane. The professor explained that he would like to design an improved flying car and that he has four goals for the project. He said he wants the vehicle to be simple enough for him to build, be as street legal as a motorcycle, be certifiable as a primary class airplane, and appeal to people who buy Harleys, Porschs, etc. The design he envisioned is a three- wheel vehicle that takes off with the use of a stick shift. 44 Campus Life Photo by Brian Rothschild The Aerocar, capable of travelling on land or air, makes an appear- ance on the Mall in February with owner Edward Sweeney.

The name University of Arizona Wildcats came from a sentence in a Los Angeles Times sports article. Bill Henry, a student correspon- dent, wrote in 1914, " The Arizona men show ed the fight of wildcats. " He w as describ- ing the Arizona-Occidental football game at Occidental. The U of A student body read Henry ' s words and joined a movement to stop calling the athletic teams the " Varsity " and instead use the " Wild- cats " . In 1964, Henry was honored as the " Father of the Arizona Wildcats " at the 50th Homecoming. The athletic slogan " Bear Dow n " w as adopted from the parting w ords of a varsity athlete. John " Button " Salmon, w ho was a football quarterback, baseball catcher and student body president, w as injured in an automobile accident in October 1926. He told Coach J.F. McKale to give a message to his teammates. " Tell them. . . tell the team to bear dow n " he said in his hospital room. He died a short time later. That day, McKale relayed the message to the football team. The team then beat New Mexico 7-0. " Bear Down " became a motto of the student body. On the roof of the Uni- versity Gymnasium, students painted the slogan. Fom then on the building w as know n as Bear Down Gym. Photo by Sunyoung Lee These words were given to his teammates as inspiration before a game shortly before " Button " died. Photo by Lindsey Gullett Wildcats 47 The marimbas up close and personal.

Percussion instruments have been around for centuries. The " Drums Across Cultures: A Celebration of Diversity " sent out a joyous sound that everyone could somehow instinctively relate to. " We decided to look at diversity and cultural awareness with something we all had in common, instead of constantly comparing our differences. All people share culture through drumming, " said Cecilia Lous, the assistant dean of the Asian Pacific American Student Affairs. Other cultural associations on campus participated, and each group was given one day of their own to bring in a drum group that was representative of their culture. " It so happened that the week picked was perfectly framed, " Lous said. As a part of Martin Luther King Jr. Day activities, the 8th Annual International Sounding of the Drum ceremony started the " Drums Across Cultures " week and Samul Nori, a Korean Drum and Dance company was in town performing at Centennial Hall. The Native American Resource Center invited Michael Spotted Wolf and Company: American Indian Drum and Dance to perform on the U of A mall.

Rees,the director for two years, estimated that 80 percent of the members were non- music majors. Membership was open to any U of A or Pima Community College student and auditions were conducted to place them. Freshman music education major David Rebeste believed that the band ' s role was to provide " the complete entertainment package. We ' re supposed to entertain people and have a good time doing it. " The band strove to produce quality shows that were performed at athletic events, charity functions (such as the Cedric Dempsey Cancer Run), dedication ceremonies, and at the annual U of A Band Day. There was a " Decade Show " which included songs by KC and the Sunshine Band, the Police, and Alanis Morisette; a " Red Hot Chili Peppers Show; " and George Gershwin ' s " Rhap- sody in Blue " was used for Homecoming. According to Rebeste, the show that was the most fun to perform was the Red Hot ChiU Peppers show because, " it was so intense, the most powerful show I ' ve ever played because it tested my abilities. " The half time shows were developed by Rees with a lot of student input. " I tried to stay in touch with the band - trying to shake things up and get people to look at marching band as if it ' s really versa- tile. " Rees said the shows were to " create a visual representation of what you heard. Forty years ago, (the choreography) was done with straight lines. Now it ' s more asymmetrical. It ' s not about the shape you make, but how you get there. " Photo by Andrew R. Reimisch The band also did songs by the Red Hot ChiU Peppers and Alanis Morisette at the " Oecade Show " . 1 Andrew R.

UA won by a score of 96 to 92, in overtime. Stomping on three number one seeds to go to the NCAA championship, the Wildcats proved they were worthy of the title " champions " . Their first task after making it to the sweet sixteen was to uproot Kansas. Going into the game Kansas was number one in the nation, the number one seed in the region and the favorite to win the championship. In fact, the Wildcats were 11 point underdogs going into the game. When Michael Dickerson heard that forecast he said, " Eleven point underdogs? That ' s not fair at all. We should be favored by five or six.. " Dickerson ' s prediction was not such a bad one, being off only by two points. Miles Simon said after the game, " I think the message we sent was that we weren ' t intimi- dated at all. We saw in the Burmingham news- papers that they were talking about Kansas and ' those other guys ' . We has somthing to prove. We came out and we did it. " They did it to the tune of a 85-82 win over Kansas. The next task was to upset Provi- dence in the Elite Eight. They suc- ceeded with a win of 96 to 92 in overtime. The win gave Arizona its 3rd Final Four appearance in 9 years. Their last task before the big game was to defeat North Carolina. The Cats beat Carolina in the regular season and had no qualms about doing it again. They got the job done with a 66 to 59 victory that sealed their chance at a first ever national championship.

UA knocked off Kentucky first-ever national titl e . After four tries Lute Olson finally established himself as part of the coaching elite. With the victory over Kentucky, Olson finally silenced the tournament criticism he had to deal with since his first Final Four in 1980 when he coached at Iowa. " I ' m just happy to have been on the team to win it for him, " center Donnall Harris said. " He ' s helped us achieve our dreams, and I am sure this was one of his dreams. " The Cats knocked off three number one seeds to get to the champion- ship. They were the first team in tournament history to do such a thing. Maybe even more special was that players like Jud Buechler, Steve Kerr and Sean Elliot were at the RCA Dome to see the big win. " We were fortunate to have a number of our former players, that are special to us, special to the program, there, " Olson said about their appearance at the game. " This is a very special moment and something that belongs to everybody associated with our program. " Jud Buechler, who was a member of the 1988 Final Four team said he felt just as nervous as the players. " This was just incredible. I felt like I was still playing with the team. " Ironically, of Olson ' s three previous Final Four teams, this year ' s squad had the worst season heading into the tournament. " You can ' t really mea- sure how tough minded a team is, and this one had a great deal of heart., " Olson said. " These guys have been just a wonderful pleasure for me and the assistant coaches to work with. They ' ve always had a tremen- dous work ethic, and that is why they are sitting up here right now. " Making our heart rates go a little higher, AJ. Bramlett fell to the floor with leg cramps. They were short- lived however, and he played the game to the end.

Honking at all major intersec- tions contin- ued through the night and well into the wee hours of the morning. Crowds went wild as Arizona won its first ever nation al title. Fourth Avenue was barely visible shortly after the final buzzer sounded in the UA - Kentucky game. It instead turned into a mass of reckless fans. Adam Galilee-Belfer, a UA alumnus said: " Everyone was going pretty ape shit! This is the way it ' s supposed to be. I ' d expect nothing less. Breaking lights, tipping cars - I ' d expect no less. " The police made 15 arrests before two in the morning. " We never thought it would be this unruly, " said Richard Miranda, Assistant Chief of Police of the Tucson Police Department. The TPD ended up calling in 50 county deputies and the TPD SWAT team. All together there were about 250 officers working with rioters. Crazed fans tipped over cars, broke down traffic signals, climbed the trolley cables, climbed on city buses, honked at every major intersection through out the night, bashed in a police car windshield, looted a news station van and blocked intersec- tions well into the night. The police ended up using pepper spray to disperse the crowds on Fourth and University. All in all Tucson went a little crazy showing their pride for the Wildcat victory. Although the actions taken might not have been " appropriate " it all showed how much love they had for their ' Cats. Climbing on the cables designed for the trolley, nearly 30ft in height, was one way frenzied fans showed their excitement. Thousands of people stormed Fourth Avenue after the win. Cars w ere tipped over, light poles climbed and other crazy things happened. ■X NcAA Championship Post-Game Antics Photos Courtesy of The Daily Wildcat f QB01 m 188 Athletic: Photos Courtesy of Daily Wildcat Moments in Sports 95 t f ■• 0- " r m fj holo by Kristin Giordano 96 A r t s wxf ' ium.j jiyiu ip E Arts, were an essential part of the col- lege experience.

The Center for Disease Control estimated that one person died from AIDS every four minutes in the U.S. One aspect of the AIDS day was the showing of the AIDS quilt. This quilt was called the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. It was started in 1987 in San Francisco. Each panel repre- sented a person who had died from the disease. The quilt had over 31,000 panels and was the size of 18 football fields.

In the spring of 1996, the club organized a Turkish cultural night. Around 120 people came to the Arizona Ballroom for a Turkish dinner. Exhibits featured rocks, dishes and pictures from Turkey. Traditional folk dancers in costumes provided entertainment. Members ran a booth at the Tucson Heritage Experience in October. They sold shishkabobs and baklava for two and a half days. The ten volunteers also operated an educational slide show. Club president Unsal Kuscuoglu said: " I like the Tucson Heri- tage Experience because we have a chance to meet hundreds of people. We get to answer their questions and give them pam- phlets about the country. " Other activities also gave the group opportunities to bring Turkish society to Tucson. The students sold baklava and Turkish pastries during the March Multicultural Week. Teaching about geography and culture, the group gave presentations at elemen- tary schools. Twice a year, the association published a newsletter with lists of members, summaries of events, and news from Turkey. Sometimes recipes and Turkish poems were included. Frequent social events were held. For example, the club went camping on Mount Graham and had picnics in Himmel Park. Members ' houses were often the sites of informal get togethers. In the fall, the members received a photography lesson. Then they travelled to San Xavier Mission to use the information. Nesrin Kuscuoglu, " The club is open to everyone.

Dances and music were performed throughout the week by various groups including the Yaqui Deer Dance Group and Young Thunder Nation. A feast was prepared for students to see how the Ojibway tribe traditionally ate. Rabbit stew, wild rice, Indian fry bread and squash were featured. The lecture and the activities were not only for people of native descent, but also for people of other cultures interested in learning about the ways of traditional and modern Native American life. Bruce Meyers, Assistant Dean of Students at the Native American Resource Center, said that the celebration ' s main goal was to aid awareness of American Indian cultural additions to the country ' s melding pot and to make " our non-native friends aware that there are many Native American components in our country ' s history. " The resource center gave " Culturally sensitive academic support and counseling services to American Indian Students in order to help them achieve success in an academically competi- tive environment " as delineated in the mission statement. Meyers noted that throughout history the American Indians have been portrayed as victims. One of the major goals of the resource center was help students realize that although their ancestors were, at times, victimized, they had resiliant culture to rely on and take strength from.

We don ' t have that culture because most of us grew up in the US. It ' s all in us and it ' s good for us to explore different aspects of that, " the president, Fai Mo said. AACA promoted Asian American awareness through getting more involved in community philanthropies and campus activi- ties. They also made an effort to get to know more clubs on campus especially Asian clubs, hoping to add to their 60-member strength. AACA organized discussions and forums as well as weekly meetings. Some of the forum topics were " How Asian Americans vote " , " Asian Americans in the Media " , and " How Affirmative Action affects Asian Americans. " To kick off the Feb. 8th Chinese Lunar New Year, the organiza- tion held a multi-media New Year celebration on Feb. 5th which was attended by about 55 people. It included food, a video presentation, a story-telling segment and auspicious Chinese characters used as decorations.

There were about 50 members, although only about half of that actually participated actively. The group went ice skating, bowl- ing, hiking, and held informal get togethers. Grace Torigoe, club president, said that the club was formed to " help incoming students from Hawaii to adjust to the culture shock of living on the mainland. We wanted to help ease the transition for those who sought a familiar environment and act as a support group for those who want it. " Creating a cultural understanding of Hawaiian heritage was a also a central goal for the group. The largest endeavor was the luau. They tried to create an authentic Hawaiian environment to educate the campus community on the lifestyles of people from this area of our country. They did this by allowing students to display their talents of dancing or singing, serving ethnic dishes and dressing in traditional garb. Anyone was welcome to join, whether they were from Hawaii, were Hawaiian or had never even been to the islands. The only requirement was the desire to understand and appreciate another culture and have a good time.

The club goal was to raise $1500 to be donated to the International Red Cross. Their concern was to help the children affected by Chernobyl, the infamous nuclear power plant explosion in the Ukraine which occurred in 1986. Although it happened a decade ago, aid had to still be provided to the cancer victims who were living in the contaminated area. " I thought it would be a great way for us to do something good for society, " expressed club president Sean Hammond. " What I ' ve noticed the most is the lack of understanding, or the lack of education, about Chernobyl. The one good thing coming out of this, besides the fact that we ' re helping these children, is that we ' ve educated a lot of people on campus about the issue and the events surrounding it. " Club members proudly presented their check to a representative from the Red Cross at their costume ball in December. The party was originally intended to commemorate the November 8th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution. " The idea behind the costume party is to come dressed as your favorite Russian or Soviet, " Hammond explained. " My life-time ambition is to dress like Trotsky and have an excuse, or at least a legitimate excuse. " People came dressed as the former Soviet leader Brezhnev, Rasputin, and as a variety of peasants. The club also held bi-weekly Rus- sian movie nights; the most memorable movie being Independence Day dubbed into Russian. Another club highlight was the camping trip to Mt. Lemmon. The purpose of the trip was to gather mushrooms, which has been a pasttime in the Russian countryside for generations.

The recognitions as a language brought a new awareness of the deaf culture. This helped form the Collegiate National Association of the Deaf (CNAD), an organization designed to bring the awareness to the university. This was the first year that CNAD was active on campus. They had 15 members who were all deaf. However, the club was not exclusive to only deaf students. It was open to hearing members as well. The only requirement was to be able to sign. All the meetings were conducted in American Sign Language. During the fall semester the club only met once a month, but by the spring semester they met twice a month. " Because we ' re just starting we haven ' t done much. It ' s always hard the first year, but we have more plans for next year, " commented Gabe Leung, treasurer. " Our main goal is to increase awareness of the club and to improve services such as having more TTY services available on campus. " explained Gabe. Gabe Leung was from Palo Alto, California. He went to a residential school ( a school for the deaf) but then went to a public school because his parents wanted him to be able to communicate with hearing people better.

Alpha Phi Omega was born at Lafayette Col- lege in the winter of 1925. From its humble beginning of 14 members, it grew into 255,000 members with 682 chapters and was the largest colle- giate organization in the United States. Although a chapter was established at the University of Arizona in the late 1950s, its dura- tion was brief. Alpha Phi Omega lay dormant for more than 30 years. Its potential stayed undiscovered until its recharter in the spring of 1996 by Matt Bafaro. From there the organi- zation grew in strength and popu- larity through the activities of its 25 members and became one of the most active co-ed service fraternities at the U of A. Alpha Phi Omega was affiliated with the Boy and Girl Scouts of America. Past work in- cluded volunteer service at the October Fest to raise money to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, soup kitchens, the local Ronald McDonald House, and the adoption of Deanza Park to keep it safe and clean. President Kelly Saxer and the rest of the members of Alpha Phi Omega continued the work of its founder, Frank Reed Horton. The members of this co-ed fraternity still proved that Frank Reed Horton ' s timeless words on life and service still ring true, 66 years after his passing: " Look for the good and try to do good to everyone regardless of who or what belief [and the result will be] a better more peaceful world in which to live and in which to make a living and life.

" Hillel is a safety net, a comfort zone for students seeking to be surrounded by Jewish traditions, " explained freshman Leslie Fox. " Judaism is both a religion and a culture. Hillel gives us a chance to meet other Jewish people and have fun while learning more about our religion and who we are as a people. " Hillel, only one branch of the national network supporting Jewish life on college campuses, acted as an umbrella covering the various groups created to serve the complex needs of Jewish students. FYSH, First-year Students of Hillel, was to draw in new undergraduates and show them what Hillel had to offer. O ktoO en FYSH members participated in an event called FYSHing for cans and a party to celebrate Tu B ' Shevat (the holiday that celebrates the planting of trees). Other Hillel organizations included Wildpac, UJA, and the university ' s off-shoot of a national pro-Israel political action committee called AIPAC. Wildpac educated students about current political issues in Israel while the members of United Jewish Appeal gave back to the community by serving food at the Ronald McDonald House. Rabbi Hillel, the ancient Jewish sage for whom Hillel was named, said: " If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? " Hillel gave students the chance to have fun in a Jewish environment while using their knowledge of Jewish customs to help others at the same time. 166 Organizations f . .

The club was a student organization within the Center for Service Learn- ing. Project Volunteer held a volun- teer fair on the Mall in August with 50 agencies present and held a second fair in February. This gave the agencies the opportunity to do recruitment of students. In October, the club organized a Fall Service Week. Each day had a theme such as homelessness, the elderly, women ' s issues, children, and there was a trip to the House of Neighborly Service. From Novemberl2th to December 6th, volunteers ran the Angel Tree table in the Student Union. An angel was a tag telling the clothing needs and toy wants of a child; over 600 angels were taken. Project Volunteer also hosted the Holiday Wish event. Through donation cans around campus, the group was able to buy a family a washing machine. Project Volunteer started a new program called Break Away. Sixteen UA students travelled to Imuris, Mexico during spring break. There they worked on a playground for developmentally challenged stu- dents, painted a peace mural, a daycare center and a school, and provided educational programs. The biggest project of the year was the All-Campus Philanthropy on April 19th. About 150 studen ts went " Into the Streets " to help the community and then returned for lunch and a reflection session. The project worked with five programs: Family Counseling Agency, Tucson Urban League, Esperanza en Escalante, Third Street Kids and Christmas in April. 1 S3 Organizations For the Christmas in April project, a volun- teer picks up trash in the A Mountain area.

These themed Masses followed by a festive dinner were interspersed throughout the year to celebrate major holidays, as well as Halloween and Mardi Gras. Many students also found the annual freshman retreat and spring break trip to be deeply rewarding experiences. " The Spring Break Trip is what really brought me into the church, " recalled David Fiore, co-chair of the Peace, Justice, and Service Committee. " Once we went to Nogales. There are so many destitute people there who desper- ately needed help. We spent a couple of days in an extremely poor part of town distributing food. Then we went to the Boys ' and Girls ' Club.

The International Student Association (ISA) worked to help make that leap a little more bearable. However, ISA was not only a vehicle to help new international students, " It was here to bring all students together, " Bevin C. McArthur, the director of ISA said. ISA had somewhat of a facelift with the appointment of a new student president and committee. With these new additions came more activities, and the group became more visible. There was a international party and welcome mixer on Jan. 25th for aU U of A students, organized by the ISA to kick off the new year. Free food and dancing music was pro- vided at the party which was at- tended by about 60 people. " This welcome party was also the rallying ISA 175 start trying to get many students pumped up for ISA ' s future activi- ties, " McArthur said. ISA organized a Multi-cultural week from March 3rd to the 7th. During this week, there were several events including an international showcase of different countries as represented by the various interna- tional clubs on campus. The Center for English as a Second Language and Amnesty International also participated in the showcase on the campus mall. As another event of Multi-cultural week, ISA held a festival of movies at Gallagher Theatre. ISA also organized pot-lucks, hiking excursions as well as infor- mal conversation circles between international and American stu- dents. These circles involved recruit- ing American students interested in getting together with international students just for informal chatter at cafes or other venues. c ' ' r r ■ ' w 7 d 4 ( tstn CO .v f. Jr about two years of being inactive, the undergraduate Sociol- ogy Club returned to action with new members and a new structure. Sociology professor William Bunis decided it was time for the sociology club to get together again. " About two years ago the sociol- ogy club died out, " he said. " I think it ' s about time that it got back together because it ' s important for sociology majors to have a place to meet other students majoring in sociology like themselves as well as meet faculty, " Bunis said. About 30 students showed up for the first meeting held at Social Sciences in October. In the spring, the club grew to 40 members. The club decided to have a different structure than the one previously used. The Sociology Club was composed of the president Carrie Ruane, a secretary, and five committee heads. The philanthropic committee dealt with community service. The social committee was in charge of planning activities that encouraged members to interact. The career committee focused on gathering information pertaining to sociology careers as well as getting guest speakers involved in sociology to give lectures. Fundraising treasury handled the money and invented ways to generate funds. The faculty liaison met wiith faculty to get help and advice for the club Sociology majors, minors and others interested in the field met every two weeks on Mondays. The club had several speakers including Sociology Department head David Snow. A barbecue was held at Reid Park. The event was successful; students had time to interact with various faculty members in the field as well as graduate students. 1 76 Organizations . .- Vhoio by Andrew Reimisch Members gather for an end of the year meeting in Room 411 of the Social Sciences Building.

Thirty-two years later and under the presidency of Kevin Scott, it grew both in size and activity. Out of a general membership of 80, about half participated in four weekend trips, one week-long summer camp, and eight to ten day trips per semester. The club ' s popu- larity stemmed from its extreme activity and free, unrestricted membership. However, the warmth one received from touching the life of a child was what made members return year after year. Activities ranged from day excursions, including zoos, UA sports events and picnics, to week- C A M P W 1 L DC A T 1 3 end " adventure " camps held at Tri- Y and Whispering Pines campsites. There, up to 100 lucky fifth graders from the Tucson Unified School District learned about nature, trust and friendship, reinforced with s ' mores, skits and songs. The day trips were for middle and high school students from local shelters. In addition to treating underprivileged kids with a day of fun. Camp Wildcat gave children with neurological disorders the same joy through the creation of " camps " at clinics and hospitals. Members made frequent visits to centers like Fan Kane where they provided patients with the one-on- one attention of craft making, games and story telling. Such activities gave members invaluable experi- ences, reinforcing the fact that " you cannot hold a torch to light another ' s path without brightening your own.

One trip was rather close to home but still had some interesting sights. Casa Grande Native American site was complete with old pueb- los and an ancient ball court. The club also took a trip to Marana with Dr. Fish. This was an Indian terrace site where Native Americans lived in pueb- los on the side of the mountain. Here the club found pottery and huge pieces of charcoal from fires that burned centuries ago. The club actively participated in digs and mostly found Native Ameri- can artifacts. When members would find a piece it would have to be catalogued, and maps were drawn to indicate where it had been found. After the process was completed, it was sent to the Arizona Lab. The lab would clean and properly place the piece and try to find the story surrounding it. The members participated in many strictly dig related events, but were not limited to them. The group got together at least once a month to watch movies, although the movies tended to have an archeological edge. The reknowned favorite was the Indiana Jones trilogy. Other more serious events included a speakers series called " Tales from the Field " . Usually 3-6 speakers came in per semester. Some speakers included researchers from the Tree Ring Lab on campus and experts on Contract Archeology. " I once found a coin from 1810, it was a dime. It was only my second or third find; I was so excited! " said Tene Greene, club president. Inspiration from the field led members to this group.

Debates about major issues, discussion forums, and various political groups registering students to vote were common sights around the Student Union and on the mall as November 5 drew nearer. Two student political groups in the middle of all the action were the Young Democrats and the Libertarian Students. The Libertarian Students was an organization that had been in existence for two years. Jackie Casey, president of the Libertarian Students, stated, " The biggest violator of (individuals ' ) rights is the government. Government, in history, has killed more people than criminals ever could. " Casey said that the Libertarian Students believed that " America is capable of being intelligent enough " to become educated about the issues facing the country. Political Clubs 183 On the other side of the politi- cal spectrum was the Democratic Party, represented on campus by the Young Democrats club. The Young Democrats, a spin-off of the Pima County Democrats, was a group that believed in taking into account all subgroups of American society when making federal policies as implied by the Democratic Party national platform. The Young Democrats were optimistic after their victory because " the Democratic ticket has done a good job in the past four years. Hopefully, it will erase some dis- parities in society: ethnic, economic, and social, " explained Club Presi- dent Julie Lewis. Even though Lewis admired the Libertarian Party ' s drive and firmly believed that they " really want to better society as a whole, " she said that their ticket was the ticket because " the party really cares about the student population.

To keep these activities going, the club sponsored fund-raising events. In honor of Gallagher ' s screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, HSA members baked cookies in the shape of the grail and sold them outside the theatre. Students were even able to sell the few cookies that were broken because one member, Thomas Andor, convinced his customers that " they were broken b ecause they were puzzles.

Americans joined in the fight against SLORC, and the Free Burma Coalition was formed. The UA chapter started in February of 1996. In the following fall and spring, the group worked to educate the cam- pus about the plight of the Burmese people. A main focus was the boycotting of U.S. corporations who do business in Burma which finan- cially supports SLORC. The Free Burma Coalition participated in an international 48-hour fast in October to bring attention to the situation.

Entrance into the club was based on freshman year aca- demic records. In October, 320 students were inducted. The membership is for life, but the club focuses on the needs of the sophomore inductees. Returning members are usually officers. " I see the first year of Phi Eta Sigma as a stepping stone to move up in the club or go on to other things, " said Philip Mueller, co-president.

Established in 1947, it was named after the first Chief of the Army Air Forces, General Hap Arnold. Like the man it represented, the club stood for professionalism, honor and service. The Russell Spicer Squadron of Arnold Air was established at the U of A in 1952 and in 96-97 was composed of a select group of 40 members ranging from freshmen to seniors. Pledges and actives had to demonstrate strong leadership qualities and constantly strive to better themselves, the military and the community. The main focus of the society was community service, and for 47 years members have dedicated their time and effort to local causes such as Mobile Meals, soup kitchens, and Arnold Air 135 children ' s shelter for abused and neglected children. Last year, under the commandment of ROTC lieuten- ant colonel and Arnold Air major Eric Hedenberg, the club organized a car show fund-raiser to raise money for the shelter and was an active participant in Walktoberfest, a walk run that benefits the Diabe- tes Foundation. One of the most moving activities of Arnold Air, however, was POW MIA Day, an annual remembrance of prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action from all branches of the military. The 24-hour obser- vance began with a silent vigil, followed by the reading of World War II and Vietnam POW stories on the U of A Mall from 9 AM to 4 PM the next day. The purpose of the ceremony was to increase commu- nity awareness.

Josh Sauberman and Rich Wrestling Club 197 Moriarty brought home wins. The wrestling Club sold ice cream at Spring Fling. Members shared the booth with Model United Nations and Chimes Honorary, raising over $1,000. The wrestlers wanted to buy new uniforms and hoped to work with the Rec Center on getting usable mats. " There are very few sports like it. You have to be in very good shape to participate, " Marrero said. Activity in the summer involved setting a schedule for the next fall and finding sponsors to help with road trips. The club looked forward to having more meets during their second year and planned on hosting teams from other states such as New Mexico and California. Marrero said: " We got our feet in the water this year. We have good wrestlers. We just need more matches to show everyone.

A goal of the fraternity was to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and enhance the civic and commercial welfare of the community. About 75 people comprised the UA chapter, named Gamma Psi. Requirements to join were that a student be a busi- ness major, have a 2.75 G.P.A. or higher, and have at least three semesters left in college. Members had to dress professionally for the meetings which were held every Thursday. The club worked to promote closer affiliation between the com- mercial world and students of commerce. Five or six professional business speakers were brought in per semester. In February, the group ran Business Week with the BPA Student Council. The Delta Sigs Delta Sigma Pi i99 arranged contacts with companies, made decorations and organized a reception. Genoa Bingham said, " I joined because it was a way for me to feel more included at the univer- sity and also get business connec- tions. " Delta Sigma Pi encouraged scholarship. The ties made with other business students created a better atmosphere for studying. Members shared many of the same classes. And a scholarship existed for students in need. Business was not the only thing on the agenda. The organization adopted Himmel Park and cleaned it three times a semester. Members helped with the March Special Olympics competition and passed out awards. A formal banquet took place on December 3rd, attended by 100 people. Sixty people came to a western theme party on May 2nd. S ' r 3r } oUy c (yfyt r Sdiod • " the chain we are Hnked " was the motto of the Chain Gang Junior Honorary. The organization accepted 30 students to be members. Members were selected on the basis of scholastic achievement plus campus and community involve- ment. The process involved an application, interview and informal mixer. Selection co-chair Sean Murray said: " It ' s an honor to be in the club, so you stay very involved. It becomes your junior year activ- ity. " Chain Gang focused on three types of activities: tradition based, social and philanthropic. Their campus presence was shown by blue and red rugby shirts worn on Tuesdays (meeting days) and at sporting events. The club partici- pated in Family Weekend, organiz- ing the Tennis Classic. A tradition since 1988, Chain Gang did not officially sign up for the Homecom- ing Parade and instead " burst into " the procession with its Magic Bus. Members went to a UA USC foot- ball game for their annual road trip. Two socials were held, a wine and cheese holiday party in December and a champagne and strawberries event in May. The group had a summer retreat in Sedona and a fall retreat on Mt. Lemmon. The honorary won the Edward Goyette award for philanthropy. Members kept clean a section of road through the Adopt A Highway program. They helped the Tucson Children ' s Museum with a haunted house and a February fair. Chain Gang played on the Jim Click team in a Pima County Literacy Program spelling bee, taking 2nd place. The club also assisted with the Cedric Dempsey Run and the Dick Tomey Pony Express. 20C Organizations Courtesif of Chain Gang Braving the rain in their club rugby shirts, Julie Stanford and Katherine Thrasher prepare for the Tennis Clasic.

The bartender pulls out a gun and the man thanks him as he turns to leave. In one word, explain the reasoning behind these actions. Stuck? So was I when this question was posed to me by Dr. Victor A. Shamas, six year professor of psychology at the University of Arizona. After a moment of unproductive contemplation, the answer, hiccups, was revealed. Dr. Shamas paid particular attention to my facial expressions as they lit up with understanding. " There! " he cried. " That is what I study: the flash of inspiration when a person com- prehends an idea. " Seeing I now had a new look of confusion, he continued. " That mo- ment of understanding is so dramatic that it has the power to change individual lives and even the course of history. If a person under- stands how to get to that moment of insight, this knowledge will enable them to more easily solve problems experienced in every day life. " Finally, I had something to offer Dr. Shamas other than bewilderment. The moment when " the light goes on and the face lights up " is the area in which Dr. Dr. Victor S h a m a s 211 Shamas centers his research. For him, this interest in the thought process associated with insight was sparked after he received a M.S. in chemistry from the University of California and taught at the U of A for four years. As a professor of chemistry, he observed the problem solving process in his students and was curious as to why some got stuck on a concept and others were able to easily com- prehend it. Fascinated with this. Dr. Shamas returned to the world of academia and ac- quired a Ph.D. in psychology. Finally, Dr. Shamas was able to begin his study of the nonconscious role of problem solving as well as the emotional component of insight. Four years later, he continues this research but now strives to prove the exist- ence of a relationship between insight and expression. As with all of his research. Dr. Shamas will incorporate his findings into practice with his wife. Dr. Patricia Hursh, to help people better deal with problems of academics, health, and love. 212 Education c T r The Institute for the Study of Planet Earth offices are located in a stylistic adobe house on Helen Street.

Photo by Lindsey Gullett y.he Institute for the Study of Planet Earth (ISPE) acted as an umbrella covering a broad range of research, fostering " an interdisciplinary approach to education, research and information exchange on global environmental questions, " according to ISPE literature. Lisa J. Graumlich served as the director of the institute. Discussing the benefits to society of the work done by ISPE, Graumlich said, " Research into atmospheric, land and ocean processes, and studies that link global environmental change to local places form a cornerstone in the design of effective management strategies for a sustainable and environmentally sound future. " In February, ISPE was awarded a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis- tration. The grant was given so researchers could look at how people are vulnerable to climate change in the southwestern United States. Water resources and the condition of range land were to be focal points of the study. Scientists affliated with the Institute for the Study of Planet Earth participated in the U.S. ISPE 2 ' x3 arth M Global Change Research Program (USGCRP). According to a USGCRP 1997 report, the program concentrated on " priority environmental science issues, " including seasonal to interannual climate variability, climate change over decades to centu- ries, and changes in land cover and terrestrial ecosystems. The ISPE home page listed examples of the UA projects done through the USGCRP. UA members of NASA ' s Earth Observing System helped obtain an unprecedented view of the Earth from space. Tree rings, ice cores and pollen were used by UA researchers of several departments to get a de- tailed picture of the history of our planet. The School of Renewable and Natural Resources studied the response of plants and vegetation to environmental changes. Graumlich said that through talks to commu- nity groups and schools, the information gained in the research was used to educate the general public. ISPE also sponsored the Global Change Seminar Series.

Such a Top Gun is U of A ' s own Jim Mitchell, instructor of journalism. Mitchell ' s resume has always been impres- sive, dating back to the fifth grade when he founded and edited his hometown newspa- per in La Habra, California. It didn ' t take long before he was running with the big boys, and in 1961 Mitchell got his first job with the Hawaiian radio station KORL. He returned to the mainland in 1962 and in 1966 transformed KHJ into an all-news over-night success through extensive coverage of the Robert F. Kennedy assassination. Mitchell left radio in 1969, and for the next 22 years his straight-forward style and honest smile was broadcast into the homes of Los Jim Mitchell 217 Angeles, New York, and Kentucky on the local news. His career in television ranged from reporter to anchor to producer and even " bum " when he took a year off from it all in 1972 to travel Europe and Africa. " One of the best things I ' ve ever done, " he said, ranked second only to his 14 year marriage to wife Marianne and decision to begin a career at the U of A in 1995. It took only three semesters of teaching Law of the Press for Mitchell to prove his worth to the Journalism department. In 1997 he was offered a full time professorship at the U of A. With his agreement, he signed on to teach Journalism 151, 208 and 502 and has enjoyed every minute of it. " I love the kids " Mitchell beamed, " and it ' s great fun to watch their skills and enthuisiasm for the business grow.

In addition to having Katie Koestner speak and lead workshops, the OASIS Center sponsored the ribbon board. n the fall, U of A was granted the contract to compile state statistics of rape and sexual assault. The Arizona Department of Health Services hired the university Arizona Preven- tion Center to run the Arizona Rape and Sexual Assault Surveillance Project. Doctorial candidate Janine I. Goldman- Pach was the research specialist responsible for the numbers. She said, " The public does not understand that there is a person behind the statistics. " The objective of the project was " to provide required data on violent and abusive behavior to the Centers for Disease Control and Preven- tion. " The surveillance project reported the state incidence of rape and attempted rape, the number of women provided rape related counseling and the number of rape hotline calls received. It also compiled the number of battered women and children who spent at least one night in emergency housing, the number of people attending rape prevention education and the number of law enforcement personnel trained in response to rape and sexual assault. The process of collecting data involved calling city, county and university police crisis Surveillance Proiect219 centers, and victim witness services, depart- ments and community counseling, " Goldman- Pach said. Except for the numbers of rapes and attempted rapes, the data came from four cities with centralized rape crisis services: Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and Prescott; the rape information was from the Uniform Crime Report of the FBI. " I focus on the four cities because of the issue of feasibility. Also the data has to be compared in certain categories, and there is not comparable information from the smaller towns, " Goldman-Pach said. The publishing of the statistics benefitted communities and victims. The statistics helped keep the organizations dealing with rape and sexual assault alive by showing that the crimes do happen and that their services are needed. Yet the numbers did not show the whole picture. Incidents could be counted only when the victims told someone. Rape is the most under reported crime according to Goldman- Pach; only 15 percent of rapes are reported. The numbers are low because of the stigma attached. " I have to be sensitive about what ' s happening to people. Sexual assault has a large impact on people ' s lives, " she said. x4, n tttve ssue i c ntA pptCf t tlfcc to Is tA tt f yHcftPpL o4- mffc Is ytot t f pCTSCfyt S y A ytiytc Tcsc TcAcT 4-Cfr tAe Much of the research is conducted from Jatiine Goldman-Pach ' s office, located in the Arizona Prevention Center.

Using a closed circuit T.V., Scott Sakamoto enlarges a math prob- lem to be able to finish creating a key for an exam. " S BVind P ioto by Andrew Reimisch ' cott I. Sakamoto is a math education graduate student who is visually impaired. He is unable to read a chalkboard without being right next to it. When standing at the front of the room, he is unable to see people raise their hands. The impairment plus his love of math led him to want to work in the field of techniques for teaching math to the visually impaired. A visual impairment is present when a loss of vision causes a loss of function, Sakamoto explained. Legal bUndness is a type of visual impairment, defined as 20 degrees of peripheral vision or 20 200 cor- rected vision in the best eye. In November, Sakamato did a presentation as part of the Mathematics Instruction and Entry Level Math CoUoquia series to share techniques he has learned. He said instructors need to prepare lessons and homework well ahead of time, and visually impaired students need to be given printed copies of the prob- lems. The students should also be notified of the content of upcoming classes so they can bring in any materials that will help them learn. According to Sakamoto, major classroom Scott Sakamoto .3 adjustments are unnecessary, but minor adjustments should be made. Math problems written on the chalkboard should be read out loud, and overhead projections should be copied off so the student can hold them close or have them explained later. A model being used in class needs to be handed to the visu- ally impaired student so he she can touch it. " The suggestions seem obvious, " Sakamoto said, " but they are overlooked by many teachers. " He described ways of dealing with specific types of math. For graphing, rubber boards exist with raised lines of different textures that represent graphs; pins are stuck in to plot points. Glue can be put around the edges of geometric figures to make them raised. Calcu- lus problems can be taken and enlarged or translated into braille. Sakamoto is working on a masters degree in special education and is pursuing a doc- toral degree in mathematics education. He would like to some day be a resource contact for schools, helping them implement pro- grams. " My intent is to broaden the career opportunities for visually impaired people by giving them access to math skills, " he said.

" h Yj .c History f After correctly identify- ing a piece of plastic, Alex is rewarded by getting to play with the object. Alex helps Irene Pepperberg train the tw o new birds, Alo and Kyo. Here, Pepperberg is spending time with her feathered friends. Vhoio by Nicole Duarte P iofo by Nicole Duarte Y search at the U of A has shown that grey parrots have mental capacities which 20 years ago scientists thought were only pos- sible in primates. Developed language skills show a high mental capacity. Irene M. Pepperberg, associate professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, has trained par- rots to use English in a meaningful way. Alex, a 20-year-old grey parrot, is the main bird she works with. She has been training him for almost 18 years. Alex knows words for objects, materials, colors, shapes and numbers and can combine words to label things such as a green metal key. The bird is able to answer questions regarding what is the same about a set of objects and what is different; in addition he is able to say which items are bigger or smaller than others. When the objects are all the same and Alex is asked what is different, he replies " none " which indicates he responds to the presence and absence of objects. Alex can ask for a particular item whether the item is present or not and can reject a wrong item. He remembers that an object exists even when it is out of sight, something an infant human can not do. Alex also has numerical competence. When asked how many of something is in front of him, he answers with a number. The type of teaching Pepperberg uses with Alex is called model rival technique. She explained that the technique requires two humans to demonstrate the desirable behav- ior. The technique involves reference, contex- tual functionality and interaction. Reference is provided when the bird is rewarded with the item he is learning about instead of an unre- lated item; giving the bird the item he cor- rectly labeled shows him the function of speech in a certain context. A social aspect is added by the interaction of the two humans plus interaction with the bird. November 229 VVew tAc pttPiTC J c ontA ilk-c tcf see l Icbi.
