Since becoming editor-in- chief of the Blue Gold at the end of my freshman year, I have transformed a 9x12, 496 pg. yearbook with 7% color cover- age into a 9x9, 400 pg. book with 19% color coverage into an 8 V4xll. 212 pg. book with 74% color coverage, complete with full-color dust jacket. Before I knew it, it was time to begin work on Yearbook 1989. The time had come to creatively out- do myself . . . again. FORMALDEHYDE is the re- sult of a summer ' s worth of end- less brainstorming, daydream- ing, magazine shredding, and oh-so-careful planning. The concept? A post-modernistic publication intended to inspire a new generation of high school and college yearbooks breaking from the traditional norms and established routines of the past. Sound familiar? Can ' t really say more. Remember: Never apol- ogize, never explain. I bring to this effort a variety of journalism experience in- cluding positions as editor-in- chief of UC Berkeley ' s Blue Gold yearbook; editor of UC Berkeley ' s current interest jour- nal The Record; production in- tern with Viacom Cablevision of San Francisco; editorial intern with Bay Area poetry review and literary calendar Poetry Flash; and editorial assistant with two well-known national publications, Newsweek and Working Woman magazines. But as with any top notch effort, I could never have pulled this one off completely on my own. Really. The staff helping to put this book together was one of the best I ' ve ever worked with. Thank you one and all! I ap- preciate your cooperation, cre- ativity, motivation, and profes- sionality. Deserving of extra special thanks and praise is Richard William Capone, my devoted assistant, friend, cre- ative partner, protege. I thank the powers-that-be for bringing you into my life, and I wish you all the best for a successful Yearbook 1990 and in every- thing you do. You ' re the great- est, and so is our book!

It ' s almost unnatural that this upstanding university should be the seat of such a wide and wild variety of ideas, lifestyles, and viewpoints (not to mention political unrest, past and present). Is there no law forbidding this? FALL 5 - ,.. ' four Pulitzer Prize winners, 95 i.bers of the National Academy of Sciences. 56 members of the National Academy of Engineering, more Guggenheim I Hlowship and Presidential Young investigators than any other university in the country this is UC Berkeley, per haps one of the finest universities in the world Educating the top 125 percent of the state ' s high school seniors, Cal is , a first choice among other Bay Area institutions from Si.inford to San Jose State and even among colleges state- .ind nation wide As students at this large and diverse uni versity, the sky (and a savings account) is the limit i nree " ake Four I iling through the massive oak doors of Wheeler Hall are aporoximately 70 million intelligent and capable students. A tiny speck near what looks like a miniature podium is speaking about his (or her?) interpretation of the sociological basis of gender. Frantic note-taking begins . . . this is DC Berkeley, perhaps one of the me ' intimidating and complex universities in the world. Between standing in line at 120 Sproul and trying to find the Earth Sciences Building a Cal freshman may find him or herself completely lost in the maze of this enormous repository of both learning and people. And how can you avoid feeling insignificant when everyone keeps asking to see your reg. card? Take Four H lelp! I ' m drowning in a sea of excellence amidst diversity! Just as the whole is not merely the sum of its parts, neither is DC Berkeley merely a fun place to live and a school that will look good on your resume. Nor is it always a cold and frightening institution. In my high school days, I saw Berkeley as the Emerald City of Oz. There was beauty and wildness in the little town and I felt awestruck by the immense university so highly acclaimed and impressive with its rows of white stone steps gracing every building. My friends and I would enter its gates as tourists to buy funky clothes at Aaarkvark ' s (now Shark ' s) and im- port records at Leopold ' s and Rasputin ' s. Dur- ing those trips wandering down Telegraph Av- enue eating pizza from Blondie ' s I realized that Cal was my destiny. The university and the town sang their interweaving siren songs and beckoned for me to take part in the grand adventure. My Yellow Brick Road was paved with SAT and achievement test scores, GPA ' s and tran- scripts. The forks in the road were many, and I nearly lost my way several times. But once here, with Oz in sight, I found myself caught in a field of sleep-inducing pop- pies. The banes of freshman year that were barely hinted at in the orientation material such as homesickness, stress, and time misman- agement settled in for the duration. The con- cept of being caught up in my classes was unheard of to me. And God forbid the pos- sibility of a social life! Where was the Good Witch of the North when you needed her? I think that this semester Glenda ' s resur- recting snowfall has come in the form of Cal itself. The isolation can be escaped. After all, there are over 35,000 other students here. Even a suburban misfit like myself can find a quasi- home-like environment in this sprawling insti- tutional morass. From the Greek system to political associations to support organizations for every minority group under the sun, Cal does reach its tentacles out into the community of students which it harbors. Sure, you have to go out and find the Wicked Witch ' s broom, but it ' s not as difficult as the typical Kansas wanderer might think. Wait in a few lines, that ' s all. The Wicked Witch has been melted but there ' s still no place like home. Luckily, I have two homes how. The people I love are at my parent ' s house, but the place I love is Berkeley. It ' s both the People ' s Republik of Berzerkeley and a world-reknown university. Four years (or so) from now, with a bachelor ' s degree as my ruby slippers, I can return to Kansas if I wish. Or maybe I ' ll stay in Oz . . . 8 FALL by Richard Capone -- - An Ethnic Thought ollege has no t always been an easy experience. Being thrown into an unknown environment can be extremely uncomfortable. For the increasing population of minority students entering college, the situation can only become worse. Many minority students who have not been ex- posed to American culture may find themselves at a disadvantage. They may lack the English communication skills necessary to guide them towards success at Cal. Fortunately, solutions to this dilemma have already been found. They are called ethnic clubs. These clubs help students overcome communication difficulties, offer tutoring, provide a voice for students ' needs, and supply friendship. Some are general recreational clubs; others are field-related clubs. Sadly, these clubs do not exist for all minorities and vary in the amount and type of assistance they offer. However, if these clubs continue to grow as they have in the past, the possibility that Cal will become a truly rep- resentative campus may be realized. Unfortunately, these ethnic clubs do also have some negative effects on minority students. They can become crutches for students who are less confident about their own ability to grasp American culture. Stu- dents in many cases join these clubs to make their cultural transition easier. Ironically, these clubs can become a trap for such students. Many times the clubs ' goals are not only to provide integration into society but also to continue the practice of their own foreign cultures. Therefore, it can become easier to cling to the familiar rather than encompass the unknown. Students who become trapped may want to expose them- selves to new elements but have a difficult time finding the motivation to break away. In the short run, not integrating into American society may not be harmful. Eventually, however, when support from a familiar ethnic group is not available, the ability to stand on one ' s own will be required, especially when trying to get a job. Basically, ethnic clubs serve as an optional base for foreign-cultured students. But eventually, many students may wish to become com- pletely independent. Although some achieve independence, others do not. It can become easier to cling to the known and reject the unknown. Regrettably, this often means passing up the opportunities that a diversified environment such as Cal has to offer. FALL 9 - Thinas You Have 1. Fall asleep on campus. 2. Watch a protest 3.

FALL 11 Breakthrough by Pamela Shadden I I il I ilit Options ll ' iiiiluii " . l ' iinl I lint si. ' i -77 X .magine a society in which terrorists, instead of hijacking airplanes, captured peoples ' brains, obstructing all thinking abilities and even vaporizing precious memories. In today ' s world, computers have become the brains of society and industry and these imaginary terrorists are real. They have the power to destroy most of the world ' s vital information using a paralyzingly powerful weapon the computer virus. This device is called a virus because of its resemblance to viruses that attack human systems. A virus, a mere fragment of DMA with protein coat, tricks the gullible human cell into producing more viruses identical to the first. Once the cell is mass-producing its malevolent code, the virus can spread throughout the body until its host ' s defense mechanisms finally give up or wise up. Like the human cell, computers can also be tricked. A computer virus enters a computer through an infected diskette and instructs this new host to make copies of it. Then, in a process resembling the way disease radiates through the populace, the infected computer spreads copies of the virus to every " healthy " disk or computer with which it comes into contact. The virus travels rapidly because of the abundance of " unsafe " computer contact. Networks, in which many computers are linked together, allow the uncomplicated transmission of information. However, when a virus accompanies this information, an epidemic can result and a whole system can become sick. How serious are viral epidemics? Everyone knows some basic symptoms of biological viruses, but what happens when computers become infected? Virtually anything the creator of the virus wants can happen. The virus can take effect almost immediately or it can lie dormant for years. For example, on March 2, 1988, several thousand Macintosh users discovered their computers were harboring a virus when a " universal message of peace " accompanied by a drawing of the Planet Earth flashed onto their screens. Although this particular virus did no harm, many viruses cause complete chaos. Some viruses erase or alter data or programs. In a business, this can be devastating. Similar to a virus, a " worm " causes costly damage by overloading a system and forcing it down while the worm is removed This can waste valuable time and money. Because viruses have been springing up frequently, paranoia has resulted and many people have begun equipping their computers with vaccines. These vaccines prevent viruses from entering a system. Disinfection programs are also available for those already infected. As much damage as a virus can do, there is really no need for paranoia. At worst, if all computer data banks were destroyed, people could always resort to eating nuts and berries and living in caves after all of civilization has vanished. But for now, I ' ll just hope my computer doesn ' t contract a virus before I finish writing this story. Writing it by hand would be unthinkable! 12 FALL ' I really don ' t know what I ' d do without you. If I could make you a quilt of happiness, every square would be a special wish, and every thread would be woven with deepest gratitude. I could go on and on, but I think you know how much the time with you means to me. To you, to me, to us, and to success with that special someone. So long ago, it ' s a certain time, it ' s a certain place. You touched my hand and you smiled, all the way back you held out your hand. If I hope and if I pray, ooh It might work out someday.

EALTH NEWS: AN APPLE A DAT FALL 25 ROCK A BYE BYE Constantly pulling all-nighters? Relax. Lack of sleep does not necessarily signal academic disaster. In a Swiss study, 16 insomniacs were given a series of tests designed to measure abilities such as reasoning, alertness, and visual perception after a night or two without sleep. The insomniacs, for the most part, performed as welt on the tests as did participants receiving a full night ' s rest. In fact, on some of the tests they did surprisingly better! So if an occassional engagement or examination diminishes your sleep potential, try not to worry. Your adrenaline keeps you going the next day, making up for some of the forfeited dormience. COOKIES AND CARBONATION? Looking for a healthy alternative to soft drinks? In an effort to compete with Coke and Pepsi and to strengthen America ' s flagging dairy industry, a United Dairy Industry Association plan is already underway to release flavored, carbonated milk to supermarket shelves within the next year. Researchers are currently experimenting with flavors such as cola and root beer and are hoping that their new product will help provide an additional source of calcium to consumers. Studies have shown that many Americans have cut their dairy intake considerably, limiting themselves to little or no cheese, milk, ice cream, and yogurt, the major providers of calcium. 26 FALL Topics and Text by Robert J. Kato BITING THE FLU BUG BACK When flu season hits campus, it hits campus hard. No one seems able to escape the grasp of the dreaded Influenza A. But Influenza A is avoidable. Many students fail to realize that there is an approved drug on the market available to prevent and treat the flu. lt ' s,called amantadine hydrochloride and it ' s 70 to 90 percent effective in preventing infections of Influenza A. What can you do if you already have the flu but wish to get rid of it as quickly as possible? If taken 24 to 48 hours after the flu bug bites, amantadine hydrochloride can also help reduce the t ime it takes the illness to work its way out of your system, perhaps by as much as two days. So the next time flu season comes around, why be a powerless victim? Fight back, take a stand, and help do away with Influenza A. ft- AQUAVIEW EYE CONTACT Tired of straining your eyes in the water? An affordable solution for swimmers who have tried (unsuccessfully) to wear contact lenses while practicing their sport is now available from Aquaview. Tailored to your prescription, contacts for swimming goggles are oversized plastic lenses which fit into a regular pair of swimming goggles. Just a drop of water holds them in. Best of all, they are available for both nearsighted and farsighted swimmers, as well as for those with astigmatism.

V FALL 27 EVEN IF YOU ' RE FEELING LIKE SUPERMAN, YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR CHOLESTEROL NUMBER. 28 FALL BE Having moved into the age of " organic living. ' product label reading in the late- 1980s has become an art, if not a sci- ence, completely out of necessity. It is estimated that every American con- sumes five to ten pounds of artificial ingredients annually. If you were to eat a Pillsbury Microwave Cake and Frost- ing, not only would you be eating sugar and flour, the time-worn ingredients, but you would also be getting helpings of sodium silicoaluminate, mono and diglycerides. sodium stearoyl lactylate. xanthan gum, and propylene glycol monoesters BHT and BHA. Such ingredients can confuse even the most knowledgable ' labelician. " But before you bite into anything, you should have some idea of what you are eating. Some common ingredients found in nu- merous products today include propyl gallate (which comes from tea leaves and prevents fat and oil from becoming rancid), sodium nitrite (the salt of ni- trous acid and a suspected carcinogen permeating bacon, ham, and cold cuts), and carrageenan (extracted from sea- weed Irish moss and added to pro- cessed milk products). For the more discriminating palate we find locust bean gum (coming from the bean of the carob tree and used to thicken bar- becue sauce and salad dressing) and disodium guanylate (found in mush- rooms and certain species of fish and added to soup mixes, canned veget- ables, and sandwich spreads to " restore " flavor lost during manufac- turing). Remarkably, the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture only began requir- ing companies to list all the major in- gredients included in processed food products as recently as 1983. Many facts and figures are not mentioned on product labels, however, as current FDA regulations do not require mate- rials such as solvents, adhesives. lu- bricating oils, and detergents which seep into food during packing to be mentioned. If labels were to include all the ingre- dients plus all the antibiotics, fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides used in the early stages of food production, the number of additives under consider- ation would top 3,000. Take heart, though. The body completely eliminates these materials if consumed in mod- eration and, as such, these ingredients pose no greater threat to your health than do ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Stev Miller O, " utstanding professors are se- lected each year on the Berkeley campus to receive the Distinguished Teaching Award. Winners are se- lected based on ratings by their stu- dents, their selection of course ma- terials, and a personal statement. There were four well-deserving re- cipients of this year ' s awards. One such recipient was Assistant Pro- fessor of English Susan Schweik. Characterized by her students as supportive, insightful, and funny, Schweik is an shining example of the quality of Gal ' s English depart- ment. Her specialty is contemporary women poets, and she is currently at work on a book entitled A Gulf So Deeply Cut: American Women Poets in the Second World War. Schweik ' s background includes a bachelor ' s degree from Sarah Law- rence College in New York and doc- torate work at Yale. As far as her teaching is concerned, Schweik ad- mits that she enjoys actual class time but dislikes giving. grades.

Olympus No More " Animal House " by Laura Bass G, I reek fraternity and sorority parties are known for excessive drinking and easy-access alcohol. Unfortu- nately, these practices have led to many injuries and deaths over the years which often result in expensive lawsuits against the houses involved. This fall, the Inter- Fraternity Council and the College Panhellenic Asso- ciation, the governing organizations of the fraternities and sororities at Cal, presented a plan to the system to lower accidents and liability. The Fraternity Insurance Purchasing Group was created to protect fraternities from potentially-dangerous situations concerning alco- hol consumption. The FIPG states that no alcohol may be purchased through a fraternity chapter ' s treasurer nor may the purchase of alcohol be coordinated by any member on behalf of a chapter. Also, no chapter may co-sponsor or co-finance a function where alcohol is purchased by the host organization. Twenty-two fra- ternities are part of this insurance group and nine more chapters have naitonal policies identical to the FIPG. What this policy means is that none of the member fraternities may buy alcohol for themselves or for their parties. If they wish to have alcoholic beverages, they must hire a licensed, professional bartender who must purchase the alcohol and ascertain that no one is served alcoholic beverages unless they are of the legal drinking age. The FIPG policy also mandates that Fall Rush must be a dry, non-alcoholic event for fraternities. The new insurance policy affects fraternities most directly since most sororities have national policies pro- hibiting the purchase of alcohol by the chapters. Fall Rush has always been dry for sororities. However, the policy protects the sororities as well because if an accident occurs at a party co-sponsored by a fraternity and a sorority, both o.f the houses are held liable. The FIPG program has been gradually phased in over the course of this year and by next year its guidelines will apply to all of the Greek system. Responsible Greek houses will hopefully result in fewer complaints to the Judicial Committee that oversees the system. Currently 80 percent of the complaints received concern alcohol- related incidents. Perhaps fraternity-sorority parties will eventually lose the " Animal House " image and become occasions that everyone can safely enjoy! 36 FALL VE i nternationally and nationally the world experienced many surprises during the summer and fall of 1988 It marked the success of Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev to finally agree upon a trea- ty limiting certain nuclear weapons while it also brought together Russian and American rescuers who saved two California Gray whales which were trapped for three weeks in Alaskan ice.

Terrorism struck once again, this time killing 259 passenges and towns- people.

Weeks after this declaration two US F-14 Tom Cat fighters shot down two Soviet- made MiG-23 fighters owned by Libya.

In addition, $350,000 out of the normal $700,000 allocated for student activities and services was cut. Being an election year, 1988 also saw Jesse Jackson at the Cal campus as he rallied behind the Democratic party. Jackson attracted about 5000 people and went on to attack George Bush and the Reagan Administration on both domestic and foreign policies. September also left its mark more heavily on 160 residents of the Unit III Residence Complex. Together these innocent students all became ill with a number of similar symptoms. Suffering from pain, vomiting, stomach cramps, dizziness, and fainting spells, many of the students requiring medical atten- tion. The source of this mysterious sickness seemed to be an ill cafeteria worker, though no one is quite certain. Fortunately, the illness peaked and FALL 39 then progressively got better. The only positive aspect of this episode was that many stu- dents were able to decorate the newly renovated Unit III with an assortment of thor- oughly chewed entrees and stomach acids. Asbestos was another prob- lem which struck the Berkeley campus in the fall. During a seismic safety renovation of Wheeler Hall, asbestos was detected forcing the removal of 250 employees and the reassignment of 200 classes. The building was closed for most of the school year. Just as Wheeler Hall began its clean up, South Hall com- pleted its 18-month renova- tion. Having received state funding, the structure was made to meet earthquake standards. South Hall, the oldest build- ing on campus, was built in 1872 in an old Victorian style. Leading Berkeley students in a rally to boycot grapes, Martin Sheen spoke out against the grape growers who al- legedly used harmful chemical sprays on their grapes.

The two supermarkets were shut down permanently due to financial failure. Similarly, Cal favorites Cafe Roma and Yarma Zone were also closed down. Campus entertainment hit a high point on October 28 as Devo presented a free concert in Lower Sproul Plaza. The show was sponsored by SUPERB Productions in association with Live 105 radio and attracted a standing-room-only crowd of Cal stu- dents and Berkeley residents. On September 23 at the Oakland Coliseum, Amnesty International (on its 1988 " Human Rights Now! " tour) performed to a crowd of 59,000.

Not enough time to go home, not enough time to do errands off campus, and, well, you just don ' t feel like opening the books. So what ' s there to do on campus between classes? To take in the flavor of your campus community, stick around Sproul Plaza. First, the basics. Sit on the steps of Sproul and watch the people go by. Check out what they ' re wear- ing, whether or not they look stressed, and, of course, if you recognize anyone. If people aren ' t your kind of thing, try some of the other in- teresting sights on campus. Squirrel watching can be rel- atively harmless. However, dog watching and feeding can be quite hazardous. The stray .Man FALL 41 dogs around campus have a reputation of being smarter than the average freshman. Most sit around the barbeques at The Fence or up at Bechtel Terrace hoping that a ham- burger patty or hot dog will for- tuitously fall to the ground. They wait and wait and on more than one occasion, many a dog has walked away smiling and sated, ready to bask under the noontime sun. But don ' t let your guard down. These dogs don ' t want to be your compan- ion. They won ' t come and sit next to your feet during a cold, rainy day. Don ' t even think of their fetching the morning newspaper or your slippers at night. All they want is the lun- cheon meat snugly wrapped between the two slices of bread. And when they have taken all that they can, they quietly mosey on to the next unsuspecting victim, leaving the former with a sense of be- ing just another casualty in the 42 FALL dog-eat-your-lunch world. Once " General People- Watching on Sproul " has been mastered, more pertinent infor- mation can be obtained at the tables set up by various cam- pus groups. Learn something new about politics, religion, athletics, social groups, or serv- ices you could contribute to - or benefit from.

Every student of eve- ry major is required to attend a rally whether it is aimed at ending apartheid in South Af- rica or smashing television sets. Another must is a breadth re- quirement of sorts which can be met by stopping to observe any of the Sproul Plaza " regulars " including political- satirist Stoney Burke, " singer " Rick Starr, or the animated but usually silent Polka-Dot Man, However, during ASUC electio weeks, avoid walking throug Sather Gate.

Many students do not realize that every Wednesday at noon the Music Department presents an hour-long free concert in Hertz Hall. The most popular on- campus, between-classes pas- time appears to be sleeping. (Not that students always wait for a break between lectures. LSB, Dwinelle, and PSL are con- l ducive sleeping spots, com- plete with lullabies from dron- ing professors.) Anyway, it seems that Moffitt Library is as popular for sleeping as it is for studying. Most students do not go there purposely to sleep be- tween classes. Au contraire! They think they are going to study, and, well, it just hap- pens. But at least now you won ' t feel so guilty when you fall asleep in your cubicle, be- cause you know that everyone else is asleep, too. Just be- FALL 43 cause someone spends more time at Moffitt does not mean he is pulling ahead of you in the GPA department. Sleeping, however, is not lim- ited to libraries and lecture halls. In good weather, the lawn in front of Hearst Mining Building is a favorite " veg " spot. Of course, any vacant desk, bench, or patch of grass will do, and does. Just remember that if you aren ' t in the mood to investi- gate Sproul Plaza or take in a concert or an exhibition or even sleep, you still don ' t have to study.

The legacy remains. FOOTBALL SOCCER FIELD HOCKEY CROSS COUNTRY VOLLEYBALL WATER POLO V-- - I pp. FOOTBALL. Bruce Snyder continued to rebuild Golden Bear football as Cal finished the 1 988 campaign at 5-5-1 , the best finish since the 1983 team posted the same record under Joe Kapp. Troy Taylor was an integral part of the Bear attack, and his 61.2 percent completion rate along with his 16 touchdown passes earned him most valuable player honors for the sec- ond consecutive season. The 1988 season may become known as the year Cal could have made it to a bowl game. The Bears, facing three heartbreaking contests with Oregon State, Washington, and Stanford, probably would have re- ceived a bowl bid with three more wins. But alas, the OSU timekeeper created a 16-minute fourth quarter and the Beavers won 1 7-1 6 on a field goal with 16 seconds left in the game. Then the Bears had no one to blame but themselves when they let a 27-3 third quarter lead turn into a 28-27 Husky victory on another dreaded field goal with two seconds remaining. Finally, in a very dreary Big Ga me, a last ditch effort at a winning season and the acquisition of the axe was foiled when a 20-yard field goal was blocked. Cal has had an excellent recruiting year, but it will be difficult to replace many of the Bear starters who have graduated, including Darryl Ingram, Dave Zawatson, and Steve Hen- drickson, all of whom were invited to post-season all-star games. MEN ' S SOCCER. The 1 988 season brought mostly bad news for Head Coach Bill Coupe and his Bears who suffered through their first losing season since 1980. Cal finished with a 6-11-2 overall record and a 2-1-2 Pacific Soccer Confer- ence record, so at least the Bears were on the upside in conference play. Probably the best thing that happened all season was that Coupe got his one-hundredth career win in a game against Simon Fraser. With a nine-season Bear coaching record of 1 04-50-1 5, Coupe is the third coach in Cal history to post over 1 00 wins. Youthful mistakes plagued the Bears. As the season progressed, standout Pete Woodring was injured, Tony DeBok was dismissed from the team, and Fred Pastor left voluntar- ily. This decline of experienced play- ers resulted in an ever-increasingly youthful team generally comprised of two seniors, one junior, five soph- omores, and four freshmen. WOMEN ' S SOCCER. It was almost all smiles for the 1988 women ' s soccer team which contin- ued its winning ways and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the sec- ond year in a row. The Bears fell short, however, of making it to the finals, the goal they had set for the 1988 season. Nevertheless, Cal fin- ished tied at third in the nation, and Golden Bear soccer now claims the feat of five top-five NCAA placings in a program begun just seven years ago. Playing the rough and ready North Carolina State Wolfpack in the semi- finals became even more difficult when Cal was forced to play without two of its top defenders: Andrea Ar- cher (out with knee surgery) and Ka- ren Peterson (out with the flu). Cal defense played strong but the team failed to muster any substantive of- fense, losing 1-0 and ending the sea- son at 15-5-2. Senior Winnie Burns was the leading scorer with 1 1 goals and teammates Valerie Pope and Joy Biefeld were named to the NCAA All Tournament Team. Head Coach Je- an-Paul Verhees rounded out the Bear honors, being named Regional Coach of the Year. 50 FALL FIELD HOCKEY. The Cal field hockey team kicked off its 1988 season with two truly im- pressive performances. Unfortunate- ly, the team failed to keep up the momentum created by its opening two games which resulted in wins over Pacific (3-2) and eventual con- ference champion Chico State (1-0). The team ' s win against the Chico State Wildcats was followed by an eight-game dry spell where Cal went 0-6-2. The Bears finished with a 4-7-2 overall record and a 1-4-1 Nor Pac Conference Record which was good for a fourth-place ending. Sopho- USC (115). UCLA (119), Arizona (133), Stanford (146), and UC Irvine (154). Calvin Gaziano was Cal ' s 1988 shining star as he finished in sixth place with a time of 30:46.3, his third top-ten finish of the year. WOMEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY. Beginning the year ranked seventh nationally, the women ' s cross coun- try team ended up being one of the few Cal teams living up to its pre- season expectations. The Bears re- mained in the top-20 throughout the entire season and had top-three fin- ishes in every meet. Cal ' s success during the 1988 season foreshad- volleyball team qualified for NCAA tournament competition for the sec- ond successful season in a row. Fin- ishing up with a 19-15 record, the team ' s 15 losses all resulted from competition with teams ranked in the top-20, and six of the Bear ' s 19 wins came over ranked opponents. Unfortunately, Cal had to tangle with the undefeated UCLA Bruins (who were ranked number one in the nation) for the second year running in the opening round of the tournament, with the decision going to the over- powering UCLA force. Had the Bear ' s competed against a lesser opponent in the first round they more Michelle McCliman led Cal in scoring with four goals and one as- sist. Garnering All-Conference hon- ors were Karyn Hillman, Michelle Ohye, and Patti Caswell. Also in the honors department, Kristi Holmes was named to the Penn Monto Coaches Academic Ail-American Team. MEN ' S CROSS COUNTRY. The California men ' s cross country team finished its season in disap- pointment as the Bears placed eighth in the District 8 meet held in Fresno. The Bears ' 184-point team total trailed Oregon (38), Washington (75), owed the team ' s eventual ninth- place finish nationally. At the NCAA meet, the Bears fin- ished ninth out of the sixteen team field and Sally Wood and Kirsten O ' Hara came away with All-American honors. This was the first time that Wood, a track All-American, received All-American honors for her efforts on Cal ' s cross country team. It was the third time that O ' Hara received All-American honors for her cross country efforts. VOLLEYBALL. Ending the season ranked seven- teenth in the nation, the California might have at least advanced to the second round of competition. Tiffany Rochelle was clearly the Bear standout. Rochelle was named First Team All Pac-10, was also named to the Pac-10 All-Academic Team, and was selected to the Ac- ademic All-American Team. WATER POLO. Pete Cutino retired this year, ending his 26-year reign at the head of col- lege water polo in storybook fashion by winning a recon. eighth NCAA championship and picking up the award for National Coach of the Year. The Golden Bears finished the 52 FALL season at 33-3, breaking the high win mark of 31 wins set by the 1 980 team and equalled by the 1986 squad. The NCAA championship game pitted Cal against Pac-10 rival UCLA who went down to the tune of 14-11. Senior Kirk Everest, who was later named the 1988 College Water Polo Player of the Year, led Cat in scoring in the UCLA title game with four goals. En route to the finals, the Bears faced Arkansas Little Rock in a 17-6 trouncing and then soundly whipped Stanford 10-6. Pac-10 honors were not reserved solely for Cutino and Everest who were named coach and player of the year, respectively. Team members Rich Ambidge and Jeff Brush were named to the All Pac-10 Team. The Bears were also well-represented on the All-American Team with first team members Brush and Everest, second team members Ambidge and Julian Bailey, third team member Chris Humbert, and honorable men- tion winner Ivan Ortiz. The winning legacy l eft behind by Coach Cutino will surely live on in the memory of Cal water polo fans and players alike for many years to come. Text by Steve Miller.

Millions of voters went to the polls and elected George Bush the 41st President of the United States. Although the 18-24 age group traditionally has the worst voter-turnout record of any demographic category of voters, many college students welcome the opportunity to get involved in political activities during presidential election years. Campaign ' 88 was no exception. FALL 55 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION STUDENT INVOLVEMENT On a student ' s hectic schedule, it is difficult to find ample time for studies and an active social life, let alone for cramming in some political campaign activities on the side. Those students who successfully participated in po- litical campaign activities in addition to all their regular daily activities deserve great admiration and respect. How did Cal students get involved during Campaign ' 88? Those clinging solidly to political party affiliation joined either the Berkeley College Re- publicans or the Cal Democrat s. Both organizations were extremely active in the presidential campaign and in contests for local offices. Members of each group sponsored and participated in debates, helped to register voters, and accosted students with " fact sheets " about their party ' s candidates and positions. There was no escaping the grasp of political information on the Berkeley campus as involved students strived to get the word out regarding their candidates ' political histories, images, and issue stands. wide variety of students took part in Election ' 88 activities. Those most concerned with who the leader of the free world would be and who especially wanted to " stand by their man " signed up with a variety of " Students For " groups. The activities of these groups overlapped with those of the party-affiliated organizations yet focused more greatly on getting the word out about lesser-known candidates and issues. Students determined to make a difference both on campus and in the community at large interned, volunteered, or were otherwise employed with a candidate ' s official campaign staff. A majority of students, however, had little or no time to officially take part in the political happenings preceding election day yet still took part in less formal political activities. Many resorted to the " word of mouth " technique of political message dissemination, pinning down friends in debates over dorm meals and persuading roommates of the ideal candidate over lab writeups and English papers. Simply talking about the issues with friends in casual con- versations clarified thoughts and influenced decisions. Lesser dedicated and more greatly stressed students opted for a one-time, no obligation political effort: Writing a letter to the Daily Cal. Some did even less by picking up the paper and scanning its announcement which read " Register to vote! One day left! Think about it!, " feeling guilty that they still hadn ' t found the time to resister. Cal students varied in their political choices, affiliations, and commitments. But no matter who they supported or how committed they were to their cause, they found numerous ways to become involved in Campaign ' 88 activities despite impinging time constraints.

Now I can eat whatever I want! No more liver goulash for this autonomous adult! " The next day he ' s eating dorm food and the smart stomach starts checking out apartment ads in the newspaper. Once a student gets his own place and gains control over his own kitchen he thinks he ' s happy. He makes a trip to Safeway and piles all his favorite foods into a shopping cart, returning home enthusiastically ready to cook. The only problem? He needs more than just ingredients to whip up a culinary masterpiece measuring cups, utensils, pots and pans are also required. After yet another trip to the supermarket and yet another dent in the checking account, the eager new chef pulls out a recipe. The actual meal preparation appears easy. All it involves is measuring and mixing ingredients, boiling some water, perhaps setting a timer or chopping up some vegetables. Simple, right? Hardly. Treacherous pitfalls accompany every step outlined by a cookbook as recipes always tell what to do but rarely how to do it. For example, how do you add only the egg whites to the meal you are preparing?! Once the food is finally in the oven or on the stove the waiting process begins. Most first-time cooks begin preparing a meal only when they feel hungry, so by the time the food is done, the starving student has consumed every edible munchie in the place. No matter how delectable the final product appears, the student cannot possibly find room to devour it. Which rarely matters most initial creations turn out far too horrendous for words. After the thrill of cooking wears off (generally after two to three days), the student comes to terms with the reality of being a student. Lack of time and money are key components of this reality. A routine develops which involves eating the same food items prepared the same way day in and day out. A tradeoff occurs between eating healthy foods which require adequate preparation and eating cheap, easy, gastronomical garbage like microwave pizza and popcorn. For most students faced with five papers and three upcoming midterms, the choice becomes obvious. Cleanup provides an additional never-ending hassle. The solution? Leave it for the weekend, or next week, or next weekend, or ... The most ideal alternative is simply shutting the doors to the kitchen and buying clean dishes. Perhaps when a student graduates from college there will be time for this time-consuming chain of events. Maybe there will even be money to purchase decent grocery items. Most college students attempting to cook for themselves today can only hope and dream and look to the future. For now, keeping the grades up and maintaining a decent social life prevail. Robert J. Kato Pamela Shadden FALL 57 Which do you prefer reading and writing, or labs and problem sets? If you prefer the former, you will want to take social science and humanities classes. If you prefer the latter, physical and biological sciences are more your style. Once headed toward the right field, try narrowing it down some more. First the social sciences and humanities. Do you like researching, extensive reading and writing, and classes such as history, sociology, ethnic studies, and political science? Then you ' ll love the social sciences! If you prefer art, culture, languages, and more abstract concepts, go for the humanities. Physical or biological sciences? Physical sciences are largely theoretical and involve plenty of computations coupled with laboratory research and reporting. The biological sciences involve the study of living things and are a bit more practical and concrete. Once you ' ve got your general area identified, you need to choose a specific subject from that area. Ask yourself the following questions: What were my favorite classes in high school? What are two or three of the subjects in this area I might enjoy? What are the major requirements for them? What are the prerequisites? In the course of this investigation you will hopefully come across the one subject which seems to fit your interests the best. At some point, you may only be able to narrow your choices down to two or three potential majors. What then? If you have some time to decide, take a few classes from each and compare them to see where your interests lie. In moments of desperation, you can always resort to pulling a major out of a hat. Confused? Undecided? Building up units and going nowhere? Don ' t worry you ' re not alone. If you still haven ' t decided on a major and the University is about to block your registration, things can seem pretty desolate. But there is hope! You can make up your mind and declare a major before the Unit Monster sneaks up and destroys your schedule request form. by Laura Wuertete MOJORS FALL 59 CONCERNS 5 8 Some of you have probably been thinking that you like all the subjects that one area has to offer. What can you do? Look into the field major programs. Field majors offer you the opportunity to earn a degree while taking slightly related classes in a wide variety of subject areas. For those of you who are simply not drawn to any of the majors being offered at this time, perhaps what you need is an individual major. If you have a certain topic in mind and can find a faculty member who is willing to work closely with you, you may be granted permission from the university to pursue your own tailor-made course of study. An individual major, like the field majors, allows you to take a wide variety of classes organized around a common theme. No matter what you decide in your pursuit of the ideal major, keep in mind that selecting a major is not, repeat not, the same thing as selecting a career. - Though a major decision can open up career op- portunities in the long run, a single degree can have a wide variety of career applications. The important thing is to select a major in which you are sincerely interested. In the end, if you still haven ' t located what you ' re looking for in terms of a ' major, you haven ' t searched hard enough. Talk to friends, visit a major advisor, and don ' t get discouraged. Before you find yourself without a reg. card, you ' re sure to find yourself with a major. II you ' re really lost, keep la mind that college advisors are always nearby to lend a (wiping hand. They won ' t and shouldn ' t make your decision lor you, but they eaa surely help point (fee way. There are also workshops designed to help you clarify your Interests and abilities. If you end up having questions about a specific major, try speaking to a major advisor they really know their stuff. Most Importantly, try not to get discouraged when searching for a major.

Groups of residents enjoy excursions to San Francisco, midnight tours of the Cal campus, walks through the Botanical Gardens, tours of Lawrence Hall of Science, as well as food tours through the eccentric streets of Berke- ley. Students readily participate in these activities, knowing that in a week most of their valuable hours will be spent solely on studying. The hall staff also gives the room- mates the chance to get to know one another through Twister parties, the popular games of Trivial Pursuit and Pictionary and other activities such as " Movies, Muchies and Mocktails. " The Hall Association quickly elects officers to plan the events of the Unit. Officers meet weekly to discuss and vote on upcoming events. Activities _ such as the " Newly Roommate Game, " the " Dating Game, " the Fall Formal, the USC road trip, ski trips and more movies and munchies are enjoyed by the dorm students as a result of the careful planning of Hall Ass. Officers. Weekly events are also offered to the residents. Yogo Meditation, Ka- rate, and aerobic classes are quite pop- ular, and students often get involved in various intramural teams organized by the Unit. Fascinating topics like Berkeley in the ' 60s, long distance re- lationships, safe sex, sexual diversity and coping with death are discussed in an organized fashion weekly in the recreational room of the Unit build- ing. Free tutoring and study groups are also offered in each Unit. In its entirety, living in a Residence Hall is more than just room and board.

You have to depend on your own resources for company and fun; you ' ll probably eat alone a lot, which is embarrassing as well as boring. Sure, you have a place to sleep and eat, but you ' ll come away hating dorm life and not knowing why it always seems to get rave reviews. On the other hand, you may get a roommate who is a great deal like yourself, maybe even in some of your classes. You will do everything together eat, talk, do homework, go 64 FALL shopping, go to football or basketball games. Your friends become your roommate ' s friends and vice versa. Whenever you get bored, you can count on your roommate to chat and drive away the monotony. Also, you have someone for moral support; you don ' t have to meet the other people on the floor all by yourself, you don ' t have to sit in your room studying c go to meetings by yourself. There ' s always someone to do things with. In this case, you will have made lots of good friends whom you will keep in touch with and you may have someone to share an apartment with next year. You love the dorms and even the food doesn ' t seem so bad. These two scenarios demonstrate the wide range of ex- periences people have in the dorms. Of course, even if you can ' t stand your roommate(s), you could still have a good time with someone down the hall, but it will be that much harder. If you ' ve lived in the dorms, you know that sometimes the food and noise are just too much to take no matter who you- roommate is. If you are considering the dorms, remember that you are taking a risk. But if you play your cards right, the (housing) lottery could pay off with a fantastic roommate and one of the best years of your life. FALL 65 f " V I t- i i ' tSJ - ' 66 FALL Time to Play by Richard Capone t last, freedom! Dorm life for most was a chance to experience a new life, a life without restrictions, a life without par- tents. Since most dorm residents were freshmen, catching a spot in the dorms offered an extremely valuable prize. Together these young adults could take ad- vantage of their good fortune to change their lifestyles while learning at the same time what college was all about Bedtime rolled past midnight, socializing climbed the ladder of priorities, and breakfast became lunch. Living ' in the dorms allowed friendships to grow to deeper levels. By being boxed in a 14 by 18 foot room with one or two roommates and by having 249 other individuals in the same building, constant companionship emerged which could not be matched by many previous lifestyles. Pizza? Chou ' s Run? Top Dog? You name it and it could be done. Whenever someone felt like a midnight snack or even to just put off studying, a quick jot down the hall resulted in a companion with similar desires. Unfortunately, these indul- gences did have consequences. Fall finals for some were a little harder than expected. Fifteen weeks ' worth of instruction usually wasn ' t condensed successfully into one or two nights of studying. Luckily most residents learned to slow down during the second semester and to use their new freedoms noderately. And if they didn ' t, academic probation was al- ways just around the corner nudging them on. But then again, what was academics to an individual in the iorms? Dorm life offered primarily an occasion to grow so- daily. Academic enhancement would naturally come with die Kxumulation of credits but social growth could only occur arith experience. The dorms offered an easy way to meet people and a chance to experiment All around you were thers your own age, encountering the same problems you Mere: tough classes, girl or guy trouble, high phone bills, ancontrollable desires to skip studying, indigestion, or just Main and simple home-sickness. Dorm life meant sharing with friends, staying up late, put- ing off homework, and having fun. If you didn ' t do these once n a while you were missing what living in the dorms was all ibout Giving up space to be smashed in a tiny room or using :oed bathrooms would all have no meaning if you didn ' t enjoy he benefits of the dorms. And indeed most residents did enjoy hese precious experiences and took advantage of their unique pportunity.

This is Berkeley and we ' re supposed to support unrealistic and idealistic causes like peace on earth and a winning football record. FALL 75 V ' - ' . X x 76 FALL At least Cal has a real mas- cot. The folks down on the farm haven ' t had a real mascot in over a dec- ade. Why don ' t they just add an " s " to the end of their pseudo-nickname and become the Cardinals? A bear is more menacing than a cardinal anyway. As Bears, we can appear intimidating with- out winning regularly. e almost had a win- ning record this year. Close but no cigar (or axe for that matter). 5-5-1 doesn ' t quite cut the mus- tard. The hopes for a win- ning season and axe rec- lamation were dashed when Stanford defensive back Tuan Van Le flew in from the left side of the Bear line and blocked Robbie Keen ' s game- winning attempt with just four seconds left in the game. NO JOY IN MUDVILLE Cal fans sat stunned, contemplating the mvsteries and injus- tices of the universe, re- alizing there would be no joy in Mudville in 1988 as the 91st Big Game ended in a 19-19 deadlock. Led by the indefatigable Mic Man, Bear fans cheered valiantly and Oski brawled with the Stanford Tree, yet all was for naught. The resulting tie, as a sage football coach often told me. was about " as exciting as kissing your sister. " Defending Cal ' s fine reputation, Oski TKO ' d Stanford ' s pugnacious pine in the first round as security guards swarmed the fracas. But the fero- cious fir wasn ' t the gen- uine article, anyway. Some stalwart Stanford-haters (devoted Cal fans, per- haps?) had heisted the rea tree at the Stanford-UC Davis band review a num ber of weeks before the Big Game. Now this is the The tie was " as exciting as kissing your sister. " type of action that makes the Big Game and the week preceding it unlike your ordinary garden- variety week. The hype surroun ding Big Game 1988 demonstrated the importance placed on a contest which lacked any sort of post-season signif- icance but was instead contested for pride, brag- ging rights, and, of course, the ever- important axe. UNLIKE ANY OTHER GRIDIRON MELEE With enough beer anyone can be- lieve that the Big Game is the most impor- tant game being contestec in the land. This is part o! what makes the Big Game and the events surround- ng it so great. Who cares hat USC and UCLA aced off the same day for he right to play in the iose Bowl? Big Game lype begins on the Mon- day before the battle and rises to a fevered pitch at the bonfire the night be- fore the two teams meet, overshadowing the impor- tance of any other sport- ing event occurring else- where in the universe. Certain measures are taken by Cal faithfuls to ensure the Big Game is unlike any other gridiron melee. The war doesn ' t begin and end when the two teams enter and leave the playing field. Much of the combat actually takes place in the stands. The Stanford band knows full well that incoming or- anges will bombard their ranks and that they should do their best to keep their distance from the hail of citrus and other objects hurled by overzealous Bear backers. Refusing to " take off that red shirt " at the Big Game is an invi- tation for doom as any stray Cardinal is " rolled up " the bleachers by the Cal student section. Such carnival excitement, the attitude that all law and order has been suspended for one afternoon, con- tributes immensely to the game ' s appeal, even when it ends up in a tie. Oh, God, but why a tie? This year, the Stanford section got into the dis- ruptive act by sending a remote-controlled car equipped with a smoke bomb whizzing through the formation of the Cal band. Oski captured the car and in a fit of good- naturedness set it free. Upon a second attack on the bear band the vehicle was destroyed. The car ' s second run through the band is most likely what incited the usually mild- mannered Oski to vio- lence with the Stanford Tree following the game ' s disappointing conclusion. To even the most casual observer, it seems the members of the Stanford band deserve to be pelted with foreign objects. Face it. Any band that paints its Sousaphones various col- ors is looking for an or- ange in the mug. If the Stanford band would clean up its act a bit, I ' m sure the friendly Bear backers would cease their vigorous assault. Well, maybe not. But this is a clever excuse for throwing things, don ' t you think? WHY, OH WHY, DID THEY HAVE TO TIE?! Several members of the Cal band made their way to the top of the Campanile on Wednesday of Big Game Week to play a few tunes in the spirit of the game. The mystique surround- ing the Big Game focused attention on a rivalry which has been contested on the football field for the past 91 years. The spirit inspired by the Big Game takes var- ious forms on campus. Each year the " Get the Red Out " blood drive helps to relieve the Bay Area blood supply short- age. This year the rivalry was extended into the UCB political scene as the Big Game Week Party emerged in the ASUC elections. Though no Big Game Week Party candi- date captured a Senatorial seat, those campaigning for the party demonstrat- ed that the Big Game has a certain magic about it, whether or not the Bears win or loose. But why, oh why, did they have to tie?! FALL 77 78 FALL " Feel the emotions of Cal. " See the people who make Cal what it Is. " No Way Out! " When everything comes tumbling down. " Playing the Field.

From run-do wn student apartments to architectural masterpieces, used clothing stores to haute boutiques, Berkeley runs the gamut. So, too, is the case for restaurants. Quaintly situated amongst flowers and ivy behind a small wooden patio, Chez Panisse provides the Bay Area ' s finest Mediterranean dining experience. According to owner Alice Waters, " The Chez Panisse experience begins with one basic philosophy: labor-intensive attention to quality. " Everything is prepared fresh by Master Chef Paul Bertolli and his five assistants using organic vegetables and meat provided exclusively to the restaurant. The menu changes daily, and reservations are required at least one calendar month in advance. Unlike many other Bay Area Thai restaurants, Plearn ' s Thai Cuisine keeps the taste exclusively Thai. No efforts are made to Americanize the food or rid it of the deliciously- pungent fragrances offered by Thai ingredients and recipes. If you eat at Plearn ' s, you won ' t be disappointed. The waiters take time to describe each delicious dish under consideration, and each is specifically made to order spicy, medium, mild, or hot. Truly delectable! In the former Sante Fe railroad station depot and in a place resembling a desert oasis lies the Santa Fe Bar Grill. Owner Faz Poursohi believes in catering to the needs of his customers. The most important aspect to him besides food quality is making his customers feel festive, creating for them a memorable dining experience. The restaurant serves simple yet savory dishes and desserts including duck, fresh fish, fresh pasta, and homemade chocolate pie. The dress is casual or whatever makes you comfortable. Faz wouldn ' t have it any other way. Andy Dong CHEZ PANISSE 1517 Shattuck Avenue Consistently rated as one of the top restaurants in the world, Chez Panisse makes its mark as the ultimate in quality dining.

By some un- fortunate fate, the two be- came separated. The mother searched desper- ately for her child and the young boy became preoc- cupied with several strange occurrences on campus. He wandered into the Terrace. There he observed several college students in- haling their lunches, pay- ing their tabs and running to class. He stood there and pondered the bizarre encounter. His mother had always advised him to chew each bite slowly. He remembered his mother ' s words, " Donny slow down, the food is not going anywhere. " He dismissed the entire situation and continued his quest. From that location, he stumbled on to Sproul Plaza. Hoards of people surrounded the frightened boy. He was devastated. " What ' s going on here? " he mumbled to himself. Where were all these people go- ing? Where were they coming from? Who were they? And why were there so many of them? It was 12:00 PM. He was caught in a mix of big bodies, loud voices, and colored backpacks. Everyone was trying to reach some destination: some were headed into Sproul Hall, some were going into the Golden Bear, some were rushing to the ASUC, and others were on their way to " Sometimes I feel like screaming because I can ' t seem to control my life. Everything is happening at once and I don ' t see an end to the maddness. " classes. An amazing trait en- compassed the students: anx- iety. He survived the ordeal and found himself in Dwinelle Hall. He surveyed the surround- ings and decided to walk up- stairs. He peeked into Room 211. The sight shocked the little boy. The students were in an uproar. A midterm was scheduled for the following day and some didn ' t have the books. They were screaming, complaining, and devising plans to get the class books which were titled ' Blue. " A strange thought occurred to the boy. " Were all college students frazzled, stressed out, unfriendly, distraught and un- able to deal with pressure? " With this disturbing question in mind, the young boy acquired more knowledge of col- lege life. College students always had bills but never enough money to pay them. The weather lacked consistency; ranging from rainy to scorching hot which sometimes af- fected the students ' performance, motivation, and states of mind. Many students didn ' t get along with their roommates. Some students found it laborious to balance their schedules. Between completing assignments, getting to class on time, getting enough rest, and ac- cepting the professors stringent grading pol- icy, the students realized a need to reevaluate their priorities. 18 WINTER by Michele Villarreal s ;::-- B " It seems that J ' i always short of funa and m resourcefulness i diminishing " " " " Alcohol!

The boy, exhausted from look- ing for his mother, sat on a bench a 11 u thought about everything he had ob- served. Everything started to make sense. These college students were dealing with the pres- sures of student life as best they could. Though being lost, the boy real- ized that even though col- lege has a lot of pressure it can be dealt with. The boy learned some helpful ad- vice: Pressure from various sources is always promi- nent, however it must be overcome as a means of achieving success. " " I feel like an egg under pressure!

The Bears, picked to finish sixth in a pre-season poll of conference coaches, finished the sea- son in a three-way tie for fourth place with USC and UCLA. However, the picture wasn ' t entirely rosy: Cal en- ded the season at 13-15, 8-10 in con- ference play. This was the Bears ' first losing season in ten years. On the up side, Cal closed out the season with a sweep of the Southern California schools to capture a piece of fourth place. It was the first time Cal had swept a series from USC and UCLA beating USC 115-106 and UCLA in a 92-81 victory. The USC game marked a Bear record for the most points in a single game. UCLA ' s contest with Cal saw the Bears com- ing back from an eleven-point first half deficit to end the season on a winning note and mark the first time Cal beat UCLA in Berkeley. 28 WINTER WOMEN ' S GYMNASTICS Although the 1989 women ' s gymnas- tics team amassed only a 6-9 record. 1 4 89 had its highlights as the Bears ., broke the school scoring record four times this year, the last time in the last meet of the season versus San Jose State. The point record has gone from 1 k85 to the current mark of 1 tf h li , V With a total of 183.30 points at the NCAA Regionals, Ca! achieved its highest marks in its tour appearar in the meet. However, the B-. ished seventh in a field of seven in the Regional meet. The heartbreak of the 1989 season was experienced by freshman Kristen Smyth who narrow- ly missed the NCAA qualifying av- erage mark of 37.77. Her season av- erage stood at 37.53, so no Ca! women competed at the NCAA na- tional championships. 1 ith so many of today ' s col- lege students fascinated with music, it is not surprising that one of this year ' s Distinguished Teaching Awards was presented to Professor of Music Anthony Newcomb. Newcomb devotes 95 percent of his time to music and is described by his students to be a " dynamic, com- pletely engaged, crazy instructor. " As an undergraduate at UC Berke- ley, Newcomb dabbled in law, eco- nomics, and music. Then he became a Fullbright Scholar, going on to study music in graduate school at Princeton. After obtaining his de- gree, Newcomb taught for one year at Harvard before returning to the Bay Area. Today, UC Berkeley ' s Hertz Hall serves as the home to his dynamic lecturing style and the mu- sic he loves so well. But fans of 1980 ' s pop music beware Pro- fessor Newcomb is not a fellow soul-mate. In fact, he finds most of modern day pop absolutely boring.

WINTER 31 QUESTIONSHIfthe Campanile fell in an earthquake, which campus structures would it destroy? Why were blue and gold selected as school colors? Who built the Big " C, " and how were its building materials transported to the top of the hill upon which it rests? D The California Memorial Stadium is dedicated to which group of individuals? Where did Oski, Cal ' s Golden Bear mascot, get his name? At noon on the last day of regular classes each semester, which song chimes from the Campanile ' s bell tower? Everyone calls it Sproul Fountain, but what is its real name, and who is it named after? A N S W E R SI In the event of an earthquake, the Campanile would not destroy any campus structures. It is designed to fall directly between Wheeler and Doe. B lue was selected as a school color because many early Berkeley students were the sons of Yale graduates. Gold was selected because it char- acterizes California. The Big " C " was built on March 18, 1905 by a group of freshman and sophomore men who formed a human chain to transport building materials up the slopes in a heavy rain. D The California Memorial Stadium is dedicated to all the University students who died in World War I. Oski got his name from the 1895 spirit cheer " Oski Wow! Wow! Whiskey Wee! Wee! " At noon on the last day of classes each semester, " The Hanging of Danny Deever " sounds from the Campanile ' s bell tower to set the somber tone of Dead Week. Ludwig ' s Fountain, named after the dog who liked to swim there when the fountain was first filled, is the correct name of the structure adorning Sproul Plaza. 32 WINTER Drugs . . . they ' re on my mind at the moment, not literally, right now anyway, but in a more philosophical, meditative, exploratory sense. Drugs can be fun, and if you do the right ones you won ' t get addicted and can have new and wondrous adventures without ever leaving your living room or dorm. Some people claim that students do more drugs than members of other segments of society. I disagree, because alcohol is certainly a drug, yet anyone in society can drink whenever the mood strikes and nobody gives it a second thought. Additionally, a wide segment of professionals do coke all the time. It ' s not fair for students to get the rap for having unprecedented numbers of drug abusers in their ranks. The problem is that students are simply an easy target for the rest of a society which fails to admit that drug abuse runs rampant outside of campus life. Nevertheless, you have to admit that a college campus is an exceedingly convenient place to obtain illegal substances. I mean. if you want drugs, really want drugs, you can get them it ' s not as if the illegality of whatever you ' re searching for will deter you. Why are drugs illegal anyway? Don ' t students have the right as American citizens to destroy their minds and bodies in any way they see fit? Isn ' t the reason George Washington and his merry men rose up against the British because of a Ti tax? (That ' s Tras in Ti-stick marijuana.) Students pay their taxes, so don ' t they deserve a few more recreational diversions? After all. alcohol is getting bpring. A new drug may reawaken the potential which lies sleeping in America. It could be the answer to all our ills. You ' ve heard it many times before. Just say no to drugs! You don ' t use them. Your friends don ' t use them. Your parents don ' t want you to use them. Still, despite all the convincing evidence indicating the devastating effects of drugs on the human body, a significant percentage of college students do get involved with drugs and believe in what they are doing. Why? by Steve Miller WINTER 33 34 WINTER CONCERNS C Oddly enough, economics provide the reason most students turn to drugs in the first place. Either they ' re making no mU money at all and get stoned out of their gourds to ease their .J anguish or they ' re so damn rich they have nothing else better I to do with their money. The student population as a whole generally falls into the impoverished category and often may have to recover from an economics midterm via self- medication. Why doesn ' t everyone just ease off students and mellow out? We all have different kinds of pressure upon us and need some type of drug, legal for some, illegal for others, to blow off a little steam. I propose that drugs be made legal only for students. That way students could ease the pressures of academic life and, with their readily available supply of substances, could make a profit to ease their financial woes on the side. By dealing drugs, some will have one less reason | to do drugs. Such reality could help resolve part of the current drug situation while serving capitalism and the American way rather well. Patriotism would rise among the student population, and graduating seniors would be more and more confident that a strong, profitable America could prevail once again. The next time you see a young, red-eyed, inco- herent student searching the Safeway aisles for a bag of Frito ' s, remember: He ' s doing drugs to assure that America will have a strong, secure future.

Bush en- tered the Oval Office with an opposing Democratic Congress to contend with. Predictably, Bush ran into problems quickly with the nomination of John Tower as Defense Secretary. Demo- crats labeled Tower a drunk and a womanizer while Republicans called hese statements over-exagerations. Nevertheless, Bush ' s nominee was ul- imately defeated by the Senate 53-47. January 7 marked the end of the pngest reigning monarch as well as he end of an era with the death of .Japanese Emperor Hirohito. This era was known as " Showa " or " Enlightened Peace. " Hirohito ' s 62- year reign was followed by the crown- ing of his eldest son, Prince Akihito. In entertainment, Pat Sajak left day- time ' s 14-year-old " Wheel of Fortune " to star in his own late-night show. As of December 30, 1988, " Wheel of For- tune " was the most popular game show in the world with a current view- ing audience of 70 million. Signifying the first successful mis- sion since the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger, space shuttle Discovery blasted into orbit on a four-day mission. The entire space shuttle program was grounded after the tragic destruction of the Challenger and its crew 73 sec- onds after liftoff on January 28, 1988. Superbowl XXIII was captured by the San Francisco 49 ' ers making the 49 ' ers the team of the eighties. The 49 ' ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in Miami on Super Bowl Sunday. After nine years of conflict, Soviet troops finally pulled out of Afghanistan. A UN-mediated agreement arranged for the removal of Soviet troops over a period of months. The costly war was ended after much criticism from the United States and most of Europe. The high costs and limited results of the war also highly influenced the Soviet Union to withdraw. Perhaps the second worse crisis to hit the American economy since the ' 81 recession unmasked itself in 1989. Over 500 thrifts and savings and loan National International WINTER 41 associations reported losses amount- ing to seven billion dollars annually. This shock threw the federal govern- ment (which currently insures Amer- ica ' s savings institutions) into a frenzy as it sought ways to pay for the severe losses. Ted Bundy, the highly-famed serial murderer, was executed at the Florida Penitentiary while a crowd of 300 sang " On Top of Old Smoky " outside the building. Bundy, first sentenced to death in 1979, managed to delay his execution by ten years through a series of tactics which sent the judicial mech- anism into circles. Bundy blamed his violence towards women on pornog- raphy. Muslim-born British author Salman Rushdie received a greater response than expected to his newly published novel The Satanic Verses when Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini offered a one million dollar reward for anyone who would murder the author (2.6 mil- lion dollars if the person was Muslim). Khomeini claimed that Rushdie ' s novel was a blasphemy against Islam. In re- sponse, several members of the Eu- ropean Economic Community with- drew diplomatic relations from Iran including Great Brrtain which also re- quested the removal of several Iranian diplomats within its borders. The con- trovery over The Satanic Verses nat- EVENTS ( : ' ' : - :f s; : :: " ; ::; urally increased sales of the book, causing local bookstores to sell all their stock and encouraging the publisher into a second printing. The book has also been linked to the pipe-bombing of two Berkeley bookstores, Cody ' s Books on Telegraph Avenue and Waldenbooks on Shattuck Avenue. I 42 WINTER National International c California ' s first dormitory Bowles Hall became an historical landmark fol- lowing an unanimous vote by the Land- marks Preservation Commission and the hard work of third-year Bowles res- ident Ken Landau. Bowles was built as a gift from Mary Bowles to her hus- band, an 1882 Berkeley graduate. The gothi c style building cost $350,000 back in 1928. In Sacramento seven bodies were unearthed outside a boarding house by police investigators. Dorothea Montalvo Puente, the owner of the boarding house, was arrested and charged with murder. Police became EVENTS involved after complaints from neigh- bors of strong odors and suspicious night diggings. Puente is suspected of murdering a total of seven elderly ten- ants to collect their Social Security benefits. At the Bear ' s Lair located in Lower Sproul Plaza Cal ' s defensive tackle Joel Dickson was shot in the left arm early one Sunday morning while at- tending a victory party. Police arrested a suspect in connection with the shoot- ing. Dickson, 20, was one of the most highly-recruited high school players in 1986. After 23 years, University officials and scientists finally decided to re- move the one megawatt nuclear re- actor in the basement of Etcheverry Hall. Scientists actually shut down the reactor one year ago due to lack of academic interest and research. The University is having the nuclear reac- tor, fuel rods and radioactive debris shipped to a storage facility provided by a private company. Protestors took a construction crane hostage for a week in February in order to halt the building of the Northwest Animal Facility on campus. Located at the corner of Haste Street and Oxford Avenue, six members of the Coalition copyright ' 88 David Ye State Local WINTER 43 Against Militarism, Animal Abuse, and Environmental Hazards scaled the crane to protest the use of animals in University-sponsored research. Food and supplies were brought up the crane allowing three of the protestors to hold out until February 28 when po- lice finally removed them. The white supremacist movement gradually gained adherents among the young. This trend was most noticeable with the violent fringe groups who cop- ied the hardcore " skinhead " style and organized under the wing of ex-Ku Klux Klan member Tom Metzger of San Die- go. In March, Metzger attempted to stage a rock concert in Napa, billed as an " Aryan Woodstock, " for his Nazi skin followers. Napa county supervi- sors went to court to halt the racist gathering and successfully prevented " Whitestock " due to lack of proper permits. Instead, only a small rally was held for 100 racist skinheads and supporters. FoUr hundred anti- Nazi and anti-racist protesters and 200 law enforcement officers also at- tended the event. 44 WINTER State Local From Mt. Olympus A Unique Rise in the Mountain by Julie Friedman I or a school that prides itself on diversity and a lack of racial or cultural separation, Berkeley still has its areas of tradition and old-fashioned conventions. One prime example is an institute steeped in tradition: the Greek system. Everyone knows the social side parties, formals, rush. Those funny Greek letters and those big houses on Piedmont, Channing, and Warring. But there ' s a whole separate system based on ideals and principles few people know of. They are the black Greeks. The black Greeks don ' t have those big houses on the Southside of campus and they don ' t rush the week before school starts eacfi fall. Their membership qual- ifications, their values, their rituals are all as traditional and specific, if not more so, than those of the more familiar Greek houses. At Berkeley, there are four black fraternities and four black sororities, all chapters of national organizations. The frats are Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Phi Beta Sigma, and Omega Phi Psi. The sororities are Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho. They each have their own colors, flower, symbol, and pin. Yet their rituals and customs are often more strict than those of other Greeks. Pledges are sometimes made to wear specific clothes or talk in a certain way. Hazing rules are dif- ferent for these Greeks, yet they have less negative publicity and fewer tragic endings than other Greeks. They have their own lingo and even their own special greetings for one another. Their parties are almost al- ways huge gala events. While differences exist between the two sets of Greeks, one thing is for sure: loyalty and tradition run strong and deep in all Greeks. The black Greeks, how- ever, have also managed to create a system which is very unique Not many people have participated in the black Greek system, but those who do experience a highly innovative and interesting element of Greek life. WINTER 45 So ... high school graduation is something deeply embedded into the past. You ' ve experienced the excitement of receiving your letter of acceptance to Cal. You ' ve made the big move to Berkeley, having left your family and friends behind, only to wonder, " What will happen next? " For now the housing hassels have been triumphed. Roommates have eaten your last piece of pizza, used your last blue book just before your exam, and popped your last vitamin C. The ACE and In-Person Registration games have been played. By now you have waited long hours, found out that your TA is really not so bad after all, and discovered which of the two unit classes don ' t offer a tremendous work load. You have passed through Sather Gate a myriad of times now and equally as often have sighed as you ' ve looked up to the Campanile. The streets of Berkeley are familiar to you and you can finally remember exactly which block on Telegraph had that great resturant. You have loved your new haircut; you have hated your new haircut. BART has been mastered and you have shopped the new Nordstrom in San Francisco. And now . . . you are interested in studying abroad! The Education Abroad Progam (EAR) serves Cal as well as each of the other CIC campuses. This service Studying Abroad provides the opportunity for you, as a GC student, to study abroad while earning GC credit. Carefully you can plan your classes toward Cal graduation. Credits taken abroad will count towards your graduation requirements as long as they meet GC and Cal criteria. Your official GC transcript shows all approved courses and the grades are computed into your overall GC GPA. The educational fees of studying abroad are similar to studying at Cal. Each student is responsible for GC registration and educational fees, campus fees, room, board, books, and personal expenses. Additional costs are related to the round-trip transportation, differences in cost of living, the length of the program (whether it is twelve or nine months), the exchange rate between currencies, and vacation travel expenses. There is no foreign university tuition nor any program fee added to your expenses. $6,400 for Hong Kong and $15,800 for Tokyo demonstrates the variation in costs for a year abroad. Not only is most of the GC financial aid ap- plicable, but EAP also has a few specific scholarships 46 WINTER by Karen Johnson and financially-disadvantaged stu- dents ranging from $300 to $1000. All UC students are eligible to ap- ply to the EAP. The minimum re- quirements include the following: 3.0 cumulative grade point average, jun- ior standing by the end of the Spring term (56 units), and possible foreign language requirements. The amount of foreign language preparation needed varies according to the lo- cation desired. The application process should take place during your sophomore year. Deadline dates, specific pro- gram details, and answers to ques- tions can be obtained directly from the EAP office at Cal. Studying abroad is definitely a val- uable experience. The exposure to a completely different academic envi- ronment, language , and culture pro- vides greater understanding and world awareness. Personal growth, achievement, and independence are among the many rewards of the ex- perience. One student compared the year spent abroad to " a crash course in life. " Another relates that " it was stimulating 24 hours a day. " This next year, 1989-90, more than 1300 students are expected to study abroad through EAP. This includes over 85 host institutions in 33 countries worldwide. This could be your next eye-opening experience through Cal.

" You can cover dis- tances normally impossible by toot and obtain the thrill of your life! " What this person is referring to is America ' s latest sport, mountain biking. Originating in the mid 70s in Marin County, mountain biking started when cycling enthusi- asts Joe Breeze and Gary Fisher experimented with several 1940 Schwin Excelsiors . These two modified the tires of these steel monsters in order to take them on some off-road adventures. Even- tually, in 1977, Joe Breeze made the first chromp- ly mountain bike frame and ever since mountain biking has spread like crazy. As expected with Marin being just across the Bay, Berkeley has also caught the mountain bik- ing craze. Being situated at the base of a range of coastal hills, a whole host of trails are available for off-roaders to experiment with. Since moun- tain bikes today are equipped with 18 gears, virtually any slope is climbable by a mountain bike using the correct tires. With low gear ratios, riders are able to keep their pedals spinning and thus themselves moving despite the grade. Unfortunately, mountain bikes are not cheap. Like most modern products, the technology has to be paid for. Production bikes made for actual hard off-road action usually cost a minimum of $500 and go up to $1300. Of course if someone wanted a custom off-road bike they could easily spend $2000 or more. Fortunately, since only ten percent of all mountain bikes actually go off-road, a wide assortment of " city " bikes have been produced which are basically less sturdier moun- tain bikes at a fraction of the cost. These " city " bikes are priced anywhere from $100 to $400. Like hiking and horseback riding, mountain biking offers the rider the opportunity to be out- doors without polluting the environment with any motorized mechanism. These riders can conquer hills using only their bikes and their own physical strength. Unfortunately, the fact that what goes up must also come down has caused some re- sentment towards mountain bikers. Since hikers, runners, horseback riders, and mountain bikers must all share the same trail, off-roaders have had a tendency to zoom past others on the downhill. Although most serious moutain bikers are courteous and keep an eye open, many times less experienced bikers do not. This causes a lot of frustration on both sides. The hikers and run- ners resent the mountain bikers, and the moun- tain bikers who obey the rules get angered for getting yelled at. What must be done is for eve- ryone to be more understanding. Mountain bikers cannot just think of themselves and likewise walkers and such cannot assume all mountain bikers are bad. Furthermore, if mountain bikers want to go fast they should ride when and where it is less populated. Perhaps the term weekend warrior is a little too zealous of a label for mountain biking. If too man 1 riders think of it in those terms all the trails will twl closed to bikes. Fortunately, a lot of responsibdj riders exist, and it is possible to still enjoy tto | thrill of mountain biking while being safe. It jus j takes a little extra planning. 50 WINTER Life and Death Earlier this academic year, a new abor- tion pill put on the market by a French pharmaceutical company caused quite a controversy between pro-life and pro- choice groups. This pill, called RU 486 but manufac- tured under the trade name Mifepristone, causes spontaneous miscarriage if taken within five weeks of pregnancy by inhib- iting the effects of the hormone proges- terone and thereby inducing the uterine lining to be sloughed off, along with the fertilized ovum. If taken together with prostaglandin, a substance that causes the uterus to contract, RU 486 is about 95% effective against unwanted pregnan- cies. Thousands of women have taken this pill and have shown no harmful side effects. Rouseel Uclaf, the manufacturer, start- ed marketing RU 486 to hospitals and medical clinics in September 1988 after the product was approved by the French government. However, when faced with potential boycotts worldwide of all its products from right-to-left groups (such as U.S. pro-life forces and Roman Cath- The Choice Between by Joyce Wu olic fundamentalists in France) and after receiving anonymous letters threatening to harm company officials and their fami- lies, Roussel Uclaf decided to suspend the pill ' s distribution in early November of the same year. This decision brought on strong protests from pro-choice groups, family planners, population experts, fem- inists, and doctors all around the worid. Subsequently, the French government, part owner of Roussel Uclaf, reversed the decision and ordered that RU 486 be re- turned to the market for " reasons of pub- lic health " and " in the interests of wom- en. " Family planning experts say that using RU 486 is safer and less painful than the usual surgical abortion. It is also a less expensive alternative. On the other hand, right-to-teft groups strongly oppose this drug because they are afraid that RU 486 could make abor- tions commonplace in the future. DavkJ N. Steen of the U.S. National Right to Life Committee said that " such a tethal drug has no place in America or anywhere else. " WINTER 51 Your Feet ' s Best Friend by Richard Capone Whatever happened to the days when a single pair of sneakers would suffice for all your athletic needs? Today it is no longer possible to rely on your local thrift store to supply you with your foot- wear. Instead, a whole range of shoes have emerged along with the fitness craze. These new shoes not only come spe- cific to each sport but also to each sport ' s particular needs. When buying running shoes, for instance, you now should know how many miles you plan to run each week, on what type of surface you plan to run, whether you plan to use the shoes for other activities as well, the width of your feet, your wear pattern (depending on the person, shoe soles wear out differently), and any in- juries you may have. These guidelines apply not only to running but to all activities. Nevertheless, one cannot help but wonder if all these varieties are nec- essary. Shoe companies say they are and consumers seem to agree since they keep buying more and more shoes. With the movements of shoes into the high technology market, the array of features available have become abstract and questionable. Besides the more ob- vious improvements such as lightness, durability, and effectiveness, how does a double vertical stabilizer bar, designer patented sole, or rebound energy tube improve your sport? Shoe companies have jumped at the opportunity to demonstrate their new " nightech ' features. They have already added flashy colors to enhance their twenty-first century line. I still wonder how the three-colored soles on my Nike Air-Plays help my racquetball game! Despite all these ambiguous features, shoe quality has definitely increased. Unfortunately, so have shoe prices. To- day ' s sports shoes which range from (continued next page side bar) Kumite An Art of Mind and Body by Karen Johnson Although the American film The Karate Kid has boosted the sport ' s popularity in recent years, Karate has been popular in Japan since the early part of this century. The Shotokan style of Karate was introduced on the island of Okinawa by Gichin Funakoshi whose pen name, Shoto, offers the name Shotokan. To- day many Americans are enjoying the benefits of the sport. Karate requires dedication in order to re- ceive the full benefits of the sport. Students spend a tremendous amount of time in the dojo, the place in which one practices Karate. One begins by developing the basic techin- ques of Karate, called kihon, and then uses these skills to learn a kata. A kata is a set of choreographed techniques during which one imagines that one is being attacked by many opponents from different directions. Sparring in Shotokan Karate is non-contact, and the attacker must control his technique to come within an inch of his target without actually hitting it. The term for sparring is kumite. These skills are learned and perfected in the dojo and displayed in various tournaments. Because of the importance placed on cour- tesy, Karate is not simply fighting. Etiquette ii of vital importance. The philosophy that or should be able to disable an opponent in i single blow makes Shotokan Karate excelien for self-defense; however, this is quite differen from " sport " Karate. Shotokan Karate is physically beneficial and this is why many study Karate. The phys ical exercise and training increase one ' s leve of strength and endurance. Karate technique: and kata benefit the body all over as oppose to working just one or two muscle groups liki running. Various types of advanced kata main ' tain different emphases. Different levels o physical strength, quickness, and agility per mit each person to concentrate on those tech niques and kata that are appropriate for hi: physical ability. Because of this, Shotokan Ka rate is accessible to anyone including womer children, and those lacking significant athleti ' ability. Increased mental concentration is yet ar other benefit of Shotokan Karate. Technique require the constant discipline of one ' s mine Because Karate is a traditional martial art, th student ' s improvement in character and mer 52 WINTER I tal discipline are perhaps more important than the improvement in physical skill. Karate is also used by some for spiritual development. Many interested in the Oriental philosophy use Karate as a means for zen One does not merely perform each technique, he " becomes " the technique. Cal students are fortunate to have the op- portunity to study Karate on campus. Sensei Sharifi, an internationally-respected instructor in the Shotokan : styte Karate, works with Cal students. Kevin Mihata has studied with Sen- sei Sharifi for three semester at Cal, is eighth kyu (third level belt) in Shotokan Karate, and placed second in kata in an invitational tra- ditional tournament. Mihata values the total body fitness that Shotokan Karate offers and claims that " the mental challenge of concen- tration and focus is the hardest part, and that is the area that (he has) developed the most. " (continued from previous page) $50 to $100 reflect a recklessly growing demand. High prices not only go to- wards quality but also appearance. Styl- ish athletic shoes sell, especially if they contain the latest technology. On the more positive side, $60 or $70 is not too much to pay when you con- sider the increased freedom you gain. Backpacking, running, and walking or playing soccer, football, basketball and tennis would not be as much fun if your feet were constantly hurting. Perhaps in today ' s age where exercise is the fetish of the young and old the questionably high price of athletic shoes is a worthy cost. WINTER 63 by Andy Dong An Ethni 1C Thought t dragged on for months, years, decades, even before the age of activism at Berkeley. This time it was not free speech riots or anti-nuclear arms debates or even anti-US foreign policy. It was a demand for the recognition that the United States would clearly have no ethnic majority by the turn of the century. It was a demand for people to understand the cultures that thrive in the United States. It was a demand for racial harmony through education, academic discourse, and mutual respect. On Tuesday, April 25, 1989, the 227 to 194 vote approving the American Cultures requirement by the Academic Senate climaxed two years of debate. Students and faculty supporters celebrated the suc- cess. Student demonstrators outside hailed each other for their efforts. " What we ' re trying to do is present a kind of unified perspective on American history and society that acknowledges the fact that from the beginning we have been a pluralistic society, " declared Professor Wil- liam Simmons, Chair of the Special Committee on Education and Eth- nicity. The requirement goes into effect with the freshman class entering in Fall 1991. Students can fulfill the graduation requirement by taking one course focusing on at least three of five ethnic groups in American society Blacks, Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and European Americans. The courses can be taken in a variety of de- partments and disciplines, a change from the first draft which would have required students to take the courses in an ethnic studies de- partment. Simmons doubted that the requirement would increase stu- dents ' workloads since students can satisfy other graduation require- ments while taking American Cultures-driven classes. Simmons said that more than 30 current classes would require little or no revision to meet the requirement. A committee of two students and seven faculty members will decide which courses fulfill the requirement. All over campus, the approval of the requirement demonstrated the unusual agreement of students and faculty. Furthermore, the Academic Senate for the first time asked the students to help draft an educational proposal. By holding public meetings on the issue, student as well as faculty input was able to influence the passing requirement. Therefore, the American Cultures victory also foreshadowed a changing horizon. Perhaps that ' s really what the proposal was all about. 54 WINTER Living In A Cardboard Box A look at Cal housing by Richard Capone V V =BA. -. Despite Cal ' s many positive features, its congested location fails to provide adequate housing cheaply and easily. As a result, students have sought housing in a variety of places: university-owned dorms, student-owned co- ops, fraternities, sororities, and privately-owned houses and apartment buildings. Nevertheless, housing is still a problem. Incoming freshmen are still not guaranteed slots in the dorms, and alternative housing is tricky to find. Rent control now exists in Berkeley. Though many people believe rent control to be T- Dlution to the often appears to be more of the problem ' s : e of rent --ol influences both the number of students receiving housing in Berkeley and the oerofpc- -tal - which ever become Under the rent control system, since so many applicants can afford the same living quarters, landlords have increased power to select among potential renters based on who they feel to be the " better " candidates. As one student commented, " One landlord went through a sudden transformation when I told him that I was a law student. He was paranoid that I was going to sue him. " Landlords also frequently turn students away in favor of more affluent working professionals. A t Rent control ' s existence also affects the number of available Berkeley rental units. Businesses invest primarily in areas where they can turn a profit. Therefore, less housing is built in rent-controlled areas. By the same token, existing rental units receive less maintenance and deteriorate more quickly. The net result is an intensified Berkeley housing crisis. Though rent control is intended to lower the cost of housing, in reality the costs generally remain the same. To bypass countless hours of house or apartment hunting, many students instead offer " finder ' s fees " to potential landlords. Students post signs stating that they will pay several hundred dollars in the form of a finder ' s fee upon the signing of a rental agreement. Landlords often contact such students in order to receive such additional income. The final situation becomes rather complex. Landlords have increased p ower to select among applicants for a diminishing supply of rental units using whatever standards they deem appropriate. Current rental units are left to deteriorate; additional rental units are never constructed. Which leaves us with the question: Is rent control really the ideal solution to Berkeley ' s housing woes or the cause of the current housing crisis? Breakthrough i j. . ,- " " j . by Charles Richardson 60 WINTER angit! Them new import cars outhandle our best sports car, Billy Joe. What should we do? " " Hell, just slap some bigger tires on! " " But it ' s faster too! " " That ' s a sinch! Just cram a bigger motor in. Then it ' ll dust any of ' em. " In many peoples ' opinions this old joke captures the essence of American auto engineering. However, GM ' s new Corvette ZR-1 proves that " advanced technology " and " American auto " can appear in the same sentence. GM used the latest technology to produce a relatively economical, very driveable, and possibly the best performing production car sold in America. First, the transmission. The ZR-1 is outfitted with the ZF 6-speed (six forward gears!). This German- developed transmission uses CAGS (computer aided gear selection) which actually forces a shift from 1st to 4th gear when driven moderately. Otherwise, shifting occurs in the normal order. This system contributes to the ZR-1 ' s achievement of 22.5 miles per gallon. Second, the suspension. The ZR-1 comes standard with the all-new FX3 Selective Ride Control system. This offers the driver three levels of shock damping: Touring, Sport, Performance. Basically, a microprocessor adjusts the amount of oil bled from the shocks depending on driving speed and the mode selection. As a result, the ZR-1 can be driven comfortably on the track just as easily as off. Last, but hardly least, the engine. GM wanted to produce the most powerful and yet tractable engine possible for the ZR-1 . Thus they turned to Lotus (owned by GM) engineers to design this powerplant. The LT-5 was their reward, sharing the same 350-cubic-inch displacement with the standard Vette engine. However, it is decked out with all-new technology. The LT-5 has four, overhead cams, 32 valves, a computer-controlled distibutorless ignition, and a two-phase induction system shared with no other motor in the world. This induction system in and of itself is an incredible breakthrough. In simplified terms, under about 3500 rpm (less than half throttle), only a quarter-size primary throttle blade opens to suck air into the ports. Then, when more power is needed, the two 2.32-in. diameter secondaries open, sucking in vast quantities of air. Also, a second set of fuel injectors come into play. This remarkable induction system allows the motor to run smoothly around town or to produce a scorching 380 bhp when asked. The aforementioned suspension coupled with this awesome engine give the ZR-1 its world-class performance statistics: 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, 1 4 mile in 12.8 seconds, top speed of 175 mph (Car Driver, June 1989), 0.94g lateral acceleration, and slalom speed of 65.7 mph (Road Track, June 1989). These statistics alone elevate the ZR-1 to the level of the best production sports cars in the world. However, the most astonishing aspect of this car is the price you can buy the ZR-1 directly from the Chevrolet dealer for about 50,000 dollars. The ZR-1 is unquestionably the best all-around sports car one can buy. GREEK LIFE 1988-1989 HOUSE AWAY FROM HOME What is Greek life all about? Most non-Greeks know little about fraternities and sororities and in some cases they don ' t want to know. To the uninitiated, the Greek system appears to be a weird version of communal living. Students rarely learn anything about Greek houses unless they venture inside some during formal or informal rush. Many don ' t even know what rush is. So how do you get on the inside anyway? It ' s a simple process of elimination. Beginning the week before the fall semester commences, every Greek house holds a series of parties that are open to all potentially-interested students. These events are formal or semi- formal and continue for six days. Houses conduct parties with different themes, entertainment, and types of food. This is the way students, or rushees, can obtain an overview of the Greek system and decide whether or not they actually want to join a fraternity or sorority. It is especially important that the rushee feels comfortable and accepted at the house he or she considers. If not, the decision to become a member may later prove regrettable. WINTER After Rush Week, houses present formal invitations, called bids, to their prospective members. If the rushee accepts the bid, he or she pledges to the ideals and creed of the group in a formal pledging ceremony. Thereafter, the rushee is regarded as a pledge or provisional member. For the first four or five weeks of classes, many houses conduct informal rush or continuous open bidding. During this time, the houses invite additional interested students to either small, spe- cially-planned parties or to their normal dinners. Informal rushees are invited back if they remain interested in becoming members of the house. Bidding and pledging takes place the same way during informal rush as during formal rush. Pledges are not considered full members, or actives, until after they have completed their pledge class. This usually includes a few small projects including a " sneak " a scavenger hunt series of pranks for or on the actives. At some point near the end of the fall semester or start of the spring semester, fraternities and sororities initiate pledges into the ranks of the active members. Though not every house participates, informal rush also takes place at the start of the spring semester. So if you missed out on the excitement in the fall, there ' s always another chance to get involved in the spring. And you don ' t have to be a freshman to participate, either. During rush, you can learn a lot of things about the Greek system that you might otherwise never have known. There are a number of misconceptions about Greek life which cast false light on the virtues of fraternity and sorority membership. To set the record straight, a course in Greek mythology comes in handy, playing a vital role in rectifying incorrect student attitudes. WINTER - ' ) BH . Greeks at Cal share a certain relationship with fellow Greeks. From their newfound brothers and sisters they acquire maturity, leadership, and responsibility. Members of Greek houses are more diverse than most non-Greeks imagine. Greeks come in many colours. There are Greeks on scholarships and Greeks receiving financial aid. Some G reeks wear jeans, some wear silk shirts, and others sport leather motorcycle jackets. WINTER , One of the finest aspects of the Greek system is its emphasis on philanthropy. Cal ' s fraternities and sororities help raise money for various local and national organizations including the Children ' s Miracle Network, the Alzheimer ' s Foundation, and the American Lung Association. Pledge classes often take on philanthropic endeavors of their own, visiting children at local hospitals or serving food at community meal programs. _Mf r !| Jl 4 1 Myth 1: Fraternities and sororities are elitist organizations. Greek houses are more diverse than most students think. After all, this is DC Berkeley. " Excellence amidst diversity, " you know. The 38 Interfraternity Council men ' s fraternities and the 14 College Panhellenic Association women ' s sororities contain members who are both ethnically and socially diverse. In ad- dition, there are numerous fraternities and sororities in the pre- dominately black National Pan Hellenic Council. Pledges are not selected on the basis of ethnicity or how much money their parents earn each year. There are Greeks on scholarships and Greeks receiving financial aid. Greeks come in many colours. Some Greeks wear jeans, some wear silk shirts, and others sport leather motorcycle jackets. Myth 2: Greeks use college as a place to party. This is probably the most widespread Greek myth around, resulting in part from movies such as " Animal House. " Films depicting the wild side of fraternity and sorority life are humorous and fun, but the image they generate of Greek membership cannot be taken too seriously. All houses impose minimum GPA requirements on their members, and many employ incentive programs to en- courage members to keep their grades up. For example, a house may divide itself into teams which receive points for things like not missing classes, studying a certain number of hours per week, achieving respectable grades on midterms and finals, and the like. The team with the most points at the end of the semester is rewarded generously for its efforts. Overall house GPAs provide additional criteria by which to understand the importance of academic achievement. Many houses also require members to participate in on-campus, non-Greek activities including ath- letics, literary groups, and honor societies. WINTER Philanthropy is given top priority by members of the Greek system. Fraternities and sororities sponsor numerous fundraisers for pet charities including the Children ' s Miracle Network, the Alzheimer ' s Foundation, and the American Lung Association. Pledge classes often take on philanthropic endeavors of their own, visiting children at local hospitals and serving food at community meal programs. Myth 3: Greek life ends after graduation. Once you pledge to a fraternity or sorority you become a member for life. Alumni claim that their college friends and contacts gained through Greek affiliation benefi t them tremendously in the business world and in their everyday lives. You may not know your fellow Greeks in Boston or Tallahassee, but you are still a brother or sister in the bond of your organization and you can often count on them to help you in ways ranging from finding a babysitter to arranging a job interview. The Greek system offers college students a house away from home among their peers. There ' s a big, lonely academic in- stitution out there, and for many Cal students a fraternity or sorority provides the most effective means of obtaining a sense of family and security while attending the university. The typical fraternity is not comprised of a wild bunch of loud, drunken, thoroughly obnoxious men who are interested in nothing but partying, just as the typical sorority is not a collection of spoiled rich women, primarily blonde and airheaded, who care about nothing but their next three dates. Instead, fraternities and so- rorities house a variety of diverse individuals with diverse talents, skills, beliefs, and ideas. Text by Laura Bass. Layout by Robert J. Kato. WINTER s . Academics, community service, brotherhood, sisterhood, and social events all contribute to the formula for impressive Greek success. Ideally, the Greek system is a wonderful culmination of democracy with aristocracy, past experience with future experiment, group equality with leadership development, and pride in one ' s individual work with pride in the ability to sacrifice self for group and general social betterment.

EDITOR ' S PAGE hey say you learn something new everyday. It may be a very old cliche, but whoever " they " may be, they were right. You learn that 2+2=4, Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin, and even if you pull the covers over your head, close your eyes and say " go away world " one hundred times, it just isn ' t going to happen. The sun is going to come up and tomorrow is going to start whether you want it to or not. If you ' re like me, you ' re optimis- tic enough to actually believe that today is better than yes- terday. Sometimes I learn I ' m wrong. Learning obviously had much trust Cowell Hospital if they tell you you have the measles; you ' ll end up quarantined there, eating their food and watching " All My Children " on a tele- vision set that goes off if you move the wrong way on the bed. I also learned that Everclear is nasty stuff but, living in the Julie Friedman and Patrick Smith. to do with my acceptance to Cal way back in 1985. After high school, I thought there wasn ' t much left to learn about life, college was going to be mostly more facts and figures. I ' d never been so wrong. As a freshman I learned that just because your checkbook balance and the number on your receipt from the ATM aren ' t the same, you don ' t change your figure for theirs. Information is 411 in Northern California just like in Southern California. Never dorms, there was someone there to help me out when I made this discovery. Probably the best thing I learned that year was how beautiful a sunset is from the 8th floor fire escape in Cheney Hall. Sophomore year brings back another old adage around Berkeley: " Everyone has one re- ally bad semester. " At least mine wasn ' t so bad it put me on AP. Parking in Berkeley stinks and people forget how to drive when it rains. I really began to appreciate a Southern Califor- nia beach when I was a soph- omore. I also learned that it is possible to own sixteen differ- ent shades of pink nail polish. Nail polish was the least of my worries when my junior year began. I needed a major. I learned that " once you ' re in, you ' re in " wasn ' t exactly the whole truth. But majors soon took a back seat to the latest thing to drop into my life the " R " word. Relationship. Me, who had never dated the same guy for more than two months, now had a relationship. But love wasn ' t all I learned about during my junior year. You can study quite productively in the Oak- land International Airport. Cheetos cheese balls are the greatest invention since the wheel (and no calories they ' re all air). Being in a po- sition of authority isn ' t always all it ' s cracked up to be. Black strapless dresses and limousines can be lots of fun. Senior year can be lots of fun, too. You learn what it ' s like to be afraid of tomorrow. And how to handle the fact that the ques- tion " What ' s next? " has no an- swer as of yet. So I listen and watch and see that maybe Mom and Dad were right about some things and maybe it wouldn ' t be such a bad goal to want what they have and to be like them. Most of all, I learn that friends are what matter and love is car- ing and sharing and security and growing. And a feather boa. Does he like her like her or just like her? Who knows?! So thank you Cal and thank you Mom and Dad for letting me come here. Thank you my friends for being you, you know who you are. Oh, and I ' m sure, even though I haven ' t been up there for awhile, that a sunset is still beautiful from the 8th floor fire escape of Cheney Hall.

It leads away from all classes, professors, books and general school headaches. At the end of the third week of March, Cal students finally break free. After the last class before Spring Break, one can actually hear the brain cells insulating themselves against any think- ing or new knowledge. After tackling the first round of midterms, the Cal student ' s weary brain sighs content- edly when it hears the names of common Spring Break locales, places such as Mexico, Tahoe, or even home. In Tijuana, the Spring Breaker can ferment all week long. The only de- cisions which demands attention are whether to drink a Corona or a mar- garita with that greasy, but oh-so- delicious, taco dinner. Those hot, sunny beaches of Mexico or South- ern California are Just the place to regain that long-lost summer tan. You can ' t put " had awesome sum- mer tan two months early " on a Job resume, but a career is not what con- cerns most students while on vaca- tion, anyway. Some people opt for numbing their reasoning facilities as opposed to fry- ing them. These vacationers head for the slopes. Zipping down the SPRING 7 mountainside at exhilarating speeds or shushing through the new powder are activities which leave no room for worries about college. This type of ski vacation gives a well-deserved physical and mental rest for the student. Instead of heading for the beaches or the slopes, the majority of students simply head for home. Spend- ing a week with family Is not only comforting, it ' s cheap. Where else but at home can one spend hours watching TV, not worrying about paying for the next meal or preparing it? For some students this version of Spring Break is the Ideal vacation. Unfortunately, sometimes circumstances demand that Spring Break be less than utopia. Although there are no classes, work and study often cannot go ignored. True, studying over Spring Break prob- ably seems sick or crazy to many people, but plenty of students do spend most of the week poring over classwork. Reminder: All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy. No one should have to forego fun during Spring Break. A vacation from school should be worry-free and, above all, a happy time. Should you get caught guzzling beer by the beach patrol or spray painting the walls of your old high school, keep In mind Its all in the name of fun.

No, it wasn ' t opening day of the yachting season, and there were no seals or sharks in the harbor. Instead, civil engineering students from 16 colleges and universities competed in the concrete canoe races. Sounds a little fishy? It ' s not. It ' s a tradition that ' s passed down from year to year and has a successful history at UC Berkeley. Undergraduate members of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) designed and built the canoes. Cal ' s entry, " Calypso, " was designed by three students. With the help of about a dozen more eager students, the design came to life the product of one afternoon ' s worth of slapping concrete on a wooden frame. The concrete was then set for approximately 28 days. The canoe weighed just under 200 pounds and was sailed by two people. (Until last year it was a four- person boat). The national championships last year in Michigan proved to be profitable competition for Cal they won the entire event, beating teams from 15 other regions across the country. Sixty percent of the competition was based on the canoe ' s design and the presentation of how it was made. The other 40 percent was based on the actual race itself. This year ' s race resulted in an even tie between Cal and Chico State, but the Berkeley boat won based on its design. Since this was only a regional com- petition, there was also a speech contest and a design contest regarding another object this year, a paper tower. Cal won the speech contest and took second in the paper tower competition. But by far the most important event was the concrete canoe race, and Cal ' s successful crew headed off to the National Championships again this year this summer in Lubbock, Texas. All those early Saturday morning practice sessions in the Berkeley Marina really paid off. SPRING 9 SCRAPBOOK OF A ( " r l-LD CRAZED COMMUTER Handicapped v " Just tuo KIOAE bfocJes!

Several student organizations have held rallies and sit-ins to protest the lack of people of color and women in the UC Berkeley faculty. This comes at a time when the student population is finally reflecting the state ' s diversity with no one ethnic group being in the majority. Currently, less than ten percent of the professors are people of color and less than 15 percent are women. In March, MEChA sponsored a series of protests on the seventh, fourteenth, and fifteenth. These rallies were endorsed by the African Students ' Association, the Asian Student Union, and the American Indian Student Union. The aim of these protests was to inform students of the lack of minority representation on the UC faculty. The group cited several specific departments for failing to hire minorities including the English Department, the Philosophy Department, and the Political Science De- partment. The protestors presented a letter to these departments rec- ommending that of the next five faculty members hired, there should be one Chicano-Latino, one black, one Asian, and one Native American and that of these five, two should be women. On March 30, Provost of the College of Letters and Science Leonard Kuhi held a meeting with department chairs to outline Affirmative Action hiring programs, and Kuhi invited 12 members of the newly-formed Students United for Diversity. However, the students boycotted the meeting, stating that they did not believe the University was going to take their demands seriously. Since the Provost ' s meeting, no definite Affirmative Action programs have been announced for faculty hiring. On April fourth, Boalt Law School students participated in a nation- wide strike to protest the lack of minorities and women in law school faculties. Thrity-five other law schools participated in the day-long boy- cott. The Boalt Coalition for Diversified Faculty sponsored the protest which demanded that within 20 years the faculty and students of the law school should reflect the ethnicity of the state. The protest was an overall success in terms of participation with 87 percent of the students boycotting classes for the day. Students held an eight-hour sit-in in Dean Jesse Choper ' s office which resulted in 46 arrests on the charge of trespassing. One hundred fifty students also rallied in front of Boalt Hall.

At Alfred University in upstate New York, fellow fraternity brothers compel 20-year-old Chuck Stenzel to become intoxicated before locking him in the trunk of a car. With his lungs filled beyond capacity, he dies from a combination of acute alcohol poisoning and exposure. 1986. Handcuffed to two other pledges, Mark Thomas Seeberger is forced to consume 20 ounces of rum and is left to find his way home from an unfamiliar Austin neighborhood. The 18-year-old University of Texas freshman dies the next morning. 1987. After participating in a traditional pledge exercise, a University of Mississippi undergraduate tumbles down the steps of his fraternity house to his death. The same year, students at Massachusetts ' Lowell University fasten a sleeping bag over a pledge ' s head, lock him in the fraternity ' s attic, and turn the furnace up full blast. As his body temperature soars above 100, the young man falls into a coma. Miraculously, he survives. A crime in most states and banned by the nation ' s 59 college fraternities and their 1500 chapters, the practice of hazing fraternity pledges has caused 44 fatalities since 1978, when hazing statistics were first recorded. Often defined as any act causing physical or emotional discomfort such as verbal abuse, sleep deprivation, paddling, or strenuous calisthenics, hazing ' s roots date back to the universities of the mid-1 7th century. Though once viewed as a harmless character-building rite of passage for fraternity brothers, this tradition today has become a violent, often life-threatening form of initiation. " We ' re fooling ourselves if we think it ' s just going to go away, " explains Ken Tracey, executive director of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, a national service fraternity with 200 chapters, seven colonies, and a membership of over 207,000. " Like a friend recently told me, ' Hazing is like crab grass. As soon as you think you have it out of your lawn, it sneaks back in. ' " by Robert J. Kato MAZfffC SPRING 19 CONCERNS ' Recent hazing cases have Involved fraternity members branding Greek letters on pledges ' bodies, students suf- fering from frostbite after being abandoned in inclement weather, and brothers shocked with electric cattle prods to ensure pledge cooperation. At least one student a year " falls " to his death from a fraternity rooftop for no apparent reason. But the severity of the current situation is not going unnoticed. Penn State ' s Interfraternity Council, for example, has taken a proactive stand against hazing. Anti-hazing literature is distributed to each Greek house, and each is notified that it is being closely monitored. One fraternity at the school had its charter suspended for two years after sending a pledge on mindless errands around campus, a form of mental hazing. And following the death of an 18- year-old Lambda Chi Alpha pledge during a fraternity " pinning party, " Rutgers University President Ed- l r% ward J. Bloustein disclosed that his school is considering putting an end to its Greek system. Bloustein announced the formation of a com- mittee to evaluate the effectiveness of regulations governing Greek activities, as have administra- tors at numerous other American colleges and universities. If indicators of late have been perceived correctly, hazing may soon discover itself to be nothing more than a practice of the past. Since fraternities ire listed permitted to operate OR campus, iMlvorslttes (along with national directors and fraternity officer ) are being sued when students die or become Injured. As a result, more and more educational Institutions are taking direct action against hazing, forced by the reality of rising liability Insurance rates, high settlement costs, the threat of costty litigation. and a sincere desire to prelect the well-being of their students. The goal is putting an end to the numerous unexplained, unpunished illegal activities occurring annually at colleges and universities across America. 20 SPRING 1 he April 12, 1989 ceremony honoring the Distinguished Teach- ing Award winners found Business Administration Professor Earl Cheit among its recipients. Cheit is no newcomer to UC Berkeley ' s busi- ness administration department. From 1976-82, he served as Dean of the Business School. Before that, from 1965-69, he was UC Berkeley ' s Executive Vice-Chancellor. Today, however, he is excelling in the classroom. Students petitioned for him to win the award he created the Earl Cheit Award honoring out- standing professors. When he isn ' t teaching, Professor Cheit is researching such topics as the pos- sible short-run horizons of Amer- ican managers or doing a study on trade policy. But he ' s really just an everyday guy. Like most of us at Cal, Cheit ' s big gripe is the lack of available parking near campus. Julie Friedman SPRING 21 EALTH NEWS: AN APPLE A DAY 22 SPRING The experts say to stay physically fit, a person must exercise for 30 minutes at least three times a week. Cal students should be in excellent health since they have access, completely free of charge, to one of the best exercise facilities around. The Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) is located right on campus. RSF offers squash, handball and racquetball courts, three gymnasiums, two exercise rooms complete with Nautilus machines, free weights, and other aerobic exercise equipment, as well as a 400-meter track, an olympic-size swimming pool and com- plete locker room facilities. There are many ways to take advantage of the place, including intramurals. clubs, class- es and just walking right in. So get healthy walk (or run) right in to RSF! After your workout, be sure to eat healthy, too. How? Well . . . If there ' s anything that a college student lacks, it ' s knowing what to buy at the supermarket. Too many suffer from the automatic, intrinsic, " all college students eat frozen dinners so why don ' t 1 " syn- drome and flock to the frozen food sec- tion bypassing the wonderful possiblities that await in the produce section. All too often though, it ' s not because students don ' t like fresh fruit, it ' s because they simply don ' t know how to pick them. To solve all these problems, here ' s a short how-to list for selecting produce, all available at your local supermarket. APPLES Granny Smith (green sweet- ly flavored), Golden Delicious (the good ol ' American apple), Fuji (new kid on the block), Mclntosh and Pippin apples (for sour taste lovers) dominate the grocery stand. When buying apples try clicking the apple lightly with your index finger. If the click sounds like you ' re rutting a hol- low, wooden chest, it should be crunchy. Look for uniform color. A red Golden Delicious with green spots on top may indicate sourness. Likewise for a green Golden Delicious that looks golden. ORANGES-Here again are many to choose from, including navel, juice, and the new tangelo (a cross between an orange and a tangerine). In general, look for one with a soft shine, unbruised and unwrinkled A heavy orange indicates that it has a lot of meat. Watch out for ones with thick skins they ' re usually dehydrated.

It is easier to buy a pre- sliced one. The meat should be red, vivid and firm, not woolly. If you must buy a whole one, perform the same clicking test as you would on an apple (but click a little harder). KIWI-This is a difficult fruit to choose. Generally though, a ripe, sweet kiwi will be soft. It is best to buy one early and store it in newspaper or a paper bag for a couple of days to allow it to ripen. Re- frigerate and enjoy. So, the next time you head off for the Berkeley Bowl, Andronico ' s or the corner market, take a few minutes to select some fruit. With a little practice, you too can lead an " organic " fruitful life. If you do get sick despite these healthy activities . The Student Health Service, located in Cowell Hospital, provides a variety of health care services to Cal students. Any Berkeley student who is registered and who has paid university registration fees can use the many services and workshops provided by the Student Health Service. Students are entitled to free services such as unlimited visits to the staff physician or nurse practitioner of their choice, access to medical specialists in 15 different dis- ciplines, emergency care, appointments with health educators {like nutritionists and chemical dependency counselors) and common laboratory tests and x-rays. With an additional fee, students can also utilize services such as allergy tests and shots, dental services, minor surgery, medication, physical exams, physical SPRING 25 MUUI - SYMPTOM COUGH MIXTURE STRONG FOR COUGHS AND CONGESTION PLUS THROAT PAIN 26 SPRING therapy, and on-campus hospitalization. When students visit Cowell Hospital they can choose from four clinics. The General Medical Clinics (A C) help students with all kinds of medical problems. The Wom- en ' s Services clinic provides gynecolog- ical care, contraceptive care and edu- cation, pregnancy testing and counseling, and information about sexually transmit- ted diseases. Students go to the Acute Care Clinic for more serious and imme- diate medical problems, as this clinic roughly corresponds to the usual emer- gency room in other hospitals. Students can visit a fourth clinic, the Specialty Clinic, when referred by a clinician from one of the other three for special medical problems. Text by Andy Dong, Julie Friedman, and Joyce Wu. SOCIAL SECURITY To see an expression of sheer ter- ror, mention a four year long study hall to a student. Nothing could be more appalling. Blurring together days and nights, becoming ob- ssessed with grades and declaring the library as a temporary address, however, are familiar aspects of Cal life for some students. What they need is a social life. Joining a campus club or organization can be the perfect solution for a col- lege experience that is Missing Something. Some students claim that they aren ' t Missing Something. They say they have no time for clubs; stud- ying and passing classes are their primary reasons for living. Another excuse to avoid getting involved is that clubs would give birth to yet more burdens, such as remember- ing and preparing for meetings, re- hearsals, or deadlines. These per- ceptions of campus organizations obviously belong to students who do not participate in any. However, those who conquer or SPRING 27 ignore their fears discover that joining a group or two offers so many benefits that drawbacks seem dwarfed. It answers most of their questions about social life at UC Berkeley: HOW can I express the true me and become more than just a number at Sproul? WHAT can I do to feel truly a part of the campus community? WHERE can I meet potential friends with interests similar to my own? WHEN can my brain have a rest? so ... WHY not join a club?

The persistent ASUC deficit meant that the future of the ASUC was at stake. An op- J nr STJC and effective leader was needed to overcome this budget crisis. Fortunately, Byron Kamp pos- sesses all these quairies Byror Kamp at first impression does not seem like the traditional executive officer one might expect to find in a bureaucracy, instead of hiding behind a barrier of formality, Kamp is very warm and open. He is also very familiar with Cal. Before ac- cepting the Executive Director po- sition, he was the Director of Cal Food Services which he managed for five years. With a very optimistic and com- mitted ASUC staff, Kamp sees the ASUC ' s goals as being attainable in the near future. Many immedi- ate problems such as the backlog of maintenance projects and the shortcoming of student group funding are issues that Kamp plans to address. Despite the numerous problems facing the ASUC, many elements also exist in Byron Kamp ' s favor. He ' s the new kid on the block and he ' s ready to play hard ball.

Olympus More Than Meets the Eye 7t6 p cm) 03 co | A B X AEOrHI KAMNO by Julie Friedman N Jothing to do on a Friday night? Don ' t watch Miami Vice go to a fraternity party. That ' s what they ' re all about, right? Not exactly. There ' s more to fraternities and sororities than just one big party and lots of alcohol. Fraternities and sororities were originally founded as small groups on college campuses, mostly back East and many over a hundred years ago. They were clubs of students with similar interests from the same places or secret societies of friends. Today, these intimate little clubs have become na- tional organizations with hundreds of chapters on cam- puses across the country and thousands of members. Once a student joins a Greek fraternity or sorority, he or she is a member for life. Alumni have varied duties. They serve as advisors to specific chapters or to the national organizations. Each national fraternity or sorority holds a convention, usually every other year, and invites all of its members, both past and present. They have work- shops, lectures, and parties and offer members a chance to meet brothers or sisters from all over the country. Nationals also have some not-so-fun jobs. If a chapter is losing membership, the national comes in and either recruits new members itself or reorganizes altogether. The national is in charge of enforcing the often-strict hazing rules. When these are broken and tragedy strikes, a whole chapter can be folded. The national organizations are also very involved in charity either funding their own or becoming major contributors to existing charities. So, fraternities and sororities are actually large, tra- ditional institutions which provide friendship and a unique way of life. They have a lot more to offer than just a few good parties. They continue to share with their members all that is available for the rest of their lives. 34 SPRING fVENTS n the national scene, this spring saw the bankruptcy of Eastern Airlines. Frank Lorenzo, manager of Texas Air Corp , Eastern ' s parent company, filed under Chapter 1 1 for bankruptcy after members of the machinist ' s and bag- gage-handler ' s union decided to strike What made the strike so severe was the fact that the pilots and flight at- tendants honored the picket lines Flights were cut to 4% of their normal schedule On the other side of the world in the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev spon- sored the first truly free and compet- itive elections in the USSR. In early April, millions of Soviet citizens went to the polls to elect new representatives to the new Supreme Soviet, the na- tion ' s legislative body. What made these elections so unique was the re- ality that Soviet citizens were actually able to choose from more than one candidate The results of the elections surprised top Communist Party offi- cials as non-party candidates were vic- torious in a substantial percentage of the nationwide races It was the worst oil spill in history. On March 24 the Exxon Valdez ran aground a reef, spilling over 240,000 barrels of crude oil The oil spread over a 1000 mile sweep and fouled over 800 miles of beach, killing 1000 sea birds and 20 sea otters This tragedy oc- curred after captain Joseph Hazelwood allowed an unqualified and unlicensed first mate officer to steer the boat across a ten-mile-wide chan- nel. Hazelwood was found to be legally drunk at the crossing of the channel. During routine exercises on April 29, an explosion ripped through a gun tur- ret aboard the Battleship Iowa killing 47 sailors The 16-inch guns with which the turret was equipped are consid- ered among the most destructive in the U.S. Navy ' s conventional weapons ar- senal but are also some of the most dangerous weapons to operate. The 47 sailors were inside the turret when the explosion occurred.

As a result he killed her along with her mother and two sisters. He also killed his wife ' s suspected lover and two of his very own three daughters. Salcido ' s sole surviving daughter was cut seriously on her neck but miraculously survived. When found abandoned, the girl de- tailed described her father ' s cutting of her sisters ' throats. South of the Sonoma County killings in Novato, Scott Martin Williams con- fessed of killing 13-year-old Jennifer Moore. Williams told investigators that he " raped her, strangled her, and bludgeoned her. " Williams lured Moore into the Bethel Baptist Church where he tied her up, raped her, strangled her with a cord, and then hit her with a bat. Solidarity received a major victory in Poland during the spring of 1989. Be- gun in 1980 as a protest to the Jaruzel- sky regime and quickly outlawed, Sol- idarity was finally declared legal. Lech Walesa, the leader of the movement, has kept the Solidarity flag flying high ever since the union was ruled illegal. I The Solidarity movement is a revolu- tionary idea of a free trade union which operates to negotiate with the com- munist regime and up until 1989 was seen by the Soviets as threatening. Whether or not Solidarity remains legal in the future could be a true test of Gorbachev ' s Peristroika policy.

Vigorous campaigns were visible all around campus and political platforms centered around issues such as hous- ing, the American Cultures Require- ment, and the Long Range Develop- ment Plan. When the 7203 ballots were tabulated lisa Poe emerged as the new ASUC president Three new ex- ecutive officers were also elected and Pam Brown was re-elected as exec- utive vice president. Voters also de- feated a proposal calling upon the Uni- versity to raise registration fees to help a financially-burdened ASUC. Sunny skies aided the California Stu- dent Foundation in the smashing suc- cess of Cat Carnival II on April 8. This year ' s profits were donated to the Ca- lifornia Student Scholarship Fund. Stu- dents enjoyed food, entertainment, dancing, puppet shows, and prizes on Cal ' s Underhill Field. Game booths such as Cal Adventures ' 15-foot rock climbing contest were contributed by student groups, dormitories, fraterni- ties, sororities, and Cal clubs. In Richmond thick bellowing clouds of black smoke did not aid in the suc- cess of the Chevron Oil Refinery. In- stead, it signified a fire in the Isomax Unit which " cracks " large oil molecules at high pressure into smaller size mol- ecules of gasoline and jet fuel using high pressure hydrogen gas. Appar- ently a hydrogen leak ignited the gas- oline and jet fuel causing nine Chevron employees second and third degree bums. Although the fire resulted in a 25 percent cutback in oil production, Chevron continued to stick to its one billion dollar plan to modernize the fa- cility. California ' s former governor and cur- rent State Democratic Party Chair Jerry Brown gave a motivating speech to students in PSL on April 18. Visiting through the efforts of Cal Democrats and as part of a statewide " campus sweep, " Brown encouraged students to organize a more active grassroot- styte Democratic Party. He stressed that as a result of a declining " progressive electoral marketplace " in America fewer of the working class and less educated voters have been com- State LocaJ SPRING 37 EVENTS ing to the polls. Brown encouraged Cal students to become the leaders in a new active Democratic Party, estab- lishing a structure to guide these stray- ing voters. In addition to this general campus speech Brown spoke with rep- resentatives from various campus groups. April 18 was also the day members of AGSE, the Association of Graduate Student Employees, began to conduct classes and hold office hours on the lawn outside California Hall. The TAs were protesting the University ' s refusal to recognize the graduate student as- sociation as a bargaining organization. The members of AGSE had several complaints directed toward the Uni- versity. These included large class and section size, low pay, no adequate health plan, and no waiver of tuition and fees. They hoped their vigil outside California Hall, the building where Chancellor I. Michael Heyman ' s office is located, would gain them recogni- tion. Members of AGSE also voted April 5 to authorize a campuswide strike. The Association, formed in 1983, consists of 60 percent of Cal ' s 2,500 TAs, RAs, readers, and tutors. 38 SPRING State Local SPRING ' S NOT-SO-VITAL VITTLES? FATAL FRUIT?

Later it was revealed that the risk of getting cancer as a result of eating an Alar- treated apple is relatively small According to a Consumer Reports representative, about one person in 20,000 might get cancer this way Risk from processed apple products is slightly higher since the processing of Alar creates the chemical suspected of causing cancer For now, the safest apple juice to consume appears to be frozen concentrate And while the Food and Drug Administration attempts to get the agricultural industry to stop using Alar.

Giving shape to imagination. o A young woman hears a few low, quiet bells ring out in the distance, breaking the silence of the night. It is that old familiar Campanile, reminding her it is time for bed. As she rises from her desk, littered with the pages of a rough draft, she thinks of what the next few weeks hold in store for her: the completion of her thesis, the end to all classes, finals and graduation. Graduation: a transition from one phase of life to the next; the step into another stage of adulthood, symbolized by a march down an aisle to receive a piece of paper. Some people dream of graduation, and see it as the end to the trials and tribulations of school -- and the key to greater independence. Others dread graduation as a time of parting; it is a time when one leaves friends, teachers, and security behind. Graduation is both feared and longed for. As the young woman walks on campus the next day, she becomes aware of how quickly the days are passing and how soon the time will come when the familiar jaunts to class across campus will be a thing of the past. Her walk takes on a new importance and the memories come flooding back both good and bad. " Here is where 1 got my first A. " she thinks as she passes Evans Hall. " And that, " looking up at Latimer where I failed my first lab session. " In Dwinelle Plaza sne recalls the fun of people-watching and talking with the gang. SPRING 75 It has been said that goodbyes are never easy and this particular one is harder than most. Some students are saying goodbye forever to their childhood when they reach graduation. Unless they plan to live at home, courtesy of parents, these newly-inducted members of " the real world " will be completely on their own for the first time in their lives. School and family will no longer offer protection from the realities of life. The night before graduation arrives she lies awake thinking. She pon- ders the questions of tomorrow as her excitement builds. Finally, she falls asleep, proud of her determination and accomplishments and confident of her success in the future. Many seniors look forward to all the opportunites now opening up to them: " Real jobs " and careers, marriage and family, and all the benefits and privileges of college graduates. They are eager to meet the challenges of the bright new world before them. And with a degree from UC Berkeley they are extremely qualified to do just that. " I can ' t believe this is really happening " , she whispers excitedly as her name is called. Out of the corner of her eye she sees her father beam as she shakes the dean ' s hand and receives her diploma. " It ' s official! " she thinks as her mind already jumps ahead to the possibilities before her now. She ' s had several job offers and one in particular is perfectly suited to her education and talents. 76 SPRING Graduates be proud. You have re- ceived an education from one of the finest institutions of higher educa- tion in the world. Your hard work has resulted in success. The struggle is over and the goal has been at- tained. But your education never ends . . . - by Julie Friedman Laura Wu- ertele. SPRING 77 M 78 SPRING The 1989 Vc. 3c.-c 5-e.e Back: Hchard Capone, Laura Bass, Laura V ertefe. Pamela Shadden.
