It was about three in the afternoon on a cool mid-February day, so Beulah had her black wool cap pulled down over her ears and had rolled down the sleeves of her red-and-white polka-dotted shirt. I noticed her beige pants as I walked by, and thought to myself that her clothes looked almost new, as she asked me, " Can you spare a quarter? " Beulah is .36, and has lived in California for ten years. For a while now she has been living in a woman ' s garage on Shattuck. In [),iyment Beulah gives the woman a bouquet of flowers every week — poppies — because Beulah works for a florist on S.iturdays. For ten dollars, Beulah spends that day picking flowers in the Berkeley hills, and always manages to sneak a few fiome. Other than that, Beulah gets $630 a month from the government, which she spends on medication and food. Beulah has six children. Three live in Virginia, where Beulah lived before she came to California, two live in a foster home in Kk hmond, California, and one is up for adoption in Richmond. " Would you like to adopt onef " she asked me while we were t.ilkmg. " They ' re beautiful children. They need someone to teach them what ' s right and what ' s wrong. Do you know what it ' s like to have a real mom and a real dad? " I told her that I did, but that I wouldn ' t be able to adopt any of her children, at least not right now. Beulah ' s parents were divorced when she was very young. Her mother remarried several times, so Beulah, her four brothers, and two sisters were raised by their grandparents — |ohn Bulldog and Grandma Beauty. ' They were bootleggers, " she laughed as she told me about the vice cops searching their home for the liquor. " They couldn ' t ever find it because we ' d hide it in the bed covers and curl up around the bottles and play possum. " When Beulah first came out to California she met a man who liked to call himself King Musa and who called her Queen Nommo. " We lived together on University and sold African crafts from Sudan. He used to grow marijuana on the roof. We were young and black and it was love. We called it love on the rooftop. " She tipped her head to one side and put on a pair of yellow-framed sun glasses. " Then I gave him a baby. Then we had a fight over a white girl. She stole my boyfriend, and he gave her a baby. After that I lost my head and they took my daughter away. " Soon after King Musa left her, Beulah moved in with " a 6S-year-old white man " and lived with him for five years, sharing the house with his dog. Lady. Beulah knew things had to change when she heard a voice which told her, ' The dog is Lucifer. I ' m tired of her sleeping in the bed with you. " " So, " Beulah told me, " I killed her. " I asked how. She said, " I bought an ax. After that he asked me to leave. I ' ve been here ever since. " Holding a regular job is hard for Beulah because, " 1 get nervous. " The longest job she ' s held was three weeks at a motel, but she quit one day because she just couldn ' t go anymore. Since then she ' s been picking flowers and panhandling. March 10 is going to be a very special day because Beulah is getting married. The time is set for 1 o ' clock in People ' s Park. Her fiance is Joseph, whom she met on Telegraph. They plan to live in a van for eight months until Joseph gets a job; then they ' ll get an apartment. Joseph walked by while we were talking, introduced himself, and checked to make sure Beulah was feeling well. Anther man stopped by soon after with two friends by his side and said, " Hey Beulah, if this marriage don ' t work out, I want you to marry me. You are a fine woman. " Beulah giggled and whispered to me that he had already proposed to her once, but of course she was in love with Joseph. Beulah was fascinated with my long blond hair. She first asked if she could have a lock of it, then said she would name her next child after me, then stroking my hair, asked me, " If I were to worship you, would you like that? " I told her 1 didn ' t think it would be a good idea. Still touching my hair, Beulah told me that she has a split personality, and every Halloween she turns into Lily Brown. " Lily Brown is a black lady with a long blond wig. She ' s a hooker. Last Halloween 1 was Lily Brown, and I hitchhiked to Los Angeles and made $375 hooking. But I was too sexy and got pregnant. " Joseph said he doesn ' t want her to do this anymore, now that they ' re getting married, and that ' s okay with Beulah. " I love him, " she smiled. Beulah has been taking medication for five years to calm her down. " I still hear voices, " she said, " It made me hear voices. " " What do the voices say? " I asked " They tell me about the flaming sworn word. Any time I look at the sun I can hear from God. 1 worship the flaming sworn word. " At this point, Beulah stood up and began dancing and singing, " I am a witch doctor. I am a good witch doctor. I sing ) the gods of the flaming sworn word. " Sometimes she can feel the flaming sworn word in her heart, " like an an-ow going around and around. " Beulah usually gets one meal a day in People ' s Park and sometimes buys somthing extra if she makes enough money panhandling. She often finds clothes in the free box in the Park. " That ' s where I got these pants! " She tugged at the knee of her pant leg and continued, " I got ' em there last night and put ' em on this morning. " One of Beulah ' s brothers is serving in the Persian Gulf. She said she hopes for a day when " all the boys come home from the war. The proud, the brave, and the few. " I realized Beulah was losing interest in our talk when she stood up to dance again and moved several feet away from me. First she sang a few spontaneously composed bits about my " flaxen hair, " then she began clapping and switched to one of her preferred songs, " I have a voice that will break away the burning flame, that will let it be like the peace in the sky. " I gave Beulah what change I had, hugged her, and promised I ' d try to make it to the wedding. As I walked away, I realized that I had originally set out to interview a destitute, homeless person. That was hardly what I found. What I found instead was a woman whose only complaint, except for missing her children, was not being able to afford lotion when the weather got cold, Beulah wants only to be spiritually secure, and in Joseph, she has I that security. 14 PEOPLE •Beulah Soi ifce icm to wine.

Bordering on the " Pop Tart " school of cooking myself, (I have on occasion eaten them raw when even the toaster seemed too complicated), I had to admit I did not know. Wasn ' t there something about a three-minute egg timer? I advised her to scramble it instead. Whether your idea of cooking is thawing Eggos in the toaster or meticulously preparing braised rack of lamb using your own home-grown herbs, you probably have dealt with the culinary world in some form. While some of us cook for pleasure, others cook out of necessity. Either way, we all learn some things along the way - hopefully. Take yeast, for example. The directions say to dissolve it in hot water. The hotter the better, right? (This comes from the same line of thinking that states, ' The higher the oven temperature, the faster the cookies will bake. " The main products of this experiment are little lumps of charcoal with chocolate chips embedded in them.) Wrong. Hot water kills yeast. Dead yeast produces a substance my friends affectionately call Lead Bread. Okay, so maybe making bread was a little too complicated. Cookies are simple and easy, right? I decided to try. Baking cookies, I expertly cracked the eggs, and neatly leveled each dry Ingredient with a knife. I was very proud of myself until I realized I had no idea how many cups of that perfectly-leveled flour now lay in my bowl. I ended up tripling the recipe before it all evened out.

' incent Sarich, noted in the field of Anthropology as much for his ego as his expertise, has stirred up controversy once again — this time over the political, moral, and technical correctness of his teachings. And he loves the attention. I By Julie Chin -think I ' m effective, interesting, and different. " Who can de- scribe anthropology professor Vincent Sarich any better than Vincent Sarich himself? But, by being " effective, " " interesting, " and " different, " Professor Sarich was criticized and even condemned by many students, faculty, and community members. While lecturing to his Anthropology 1 class in early November, Professor Sanch found himself in the middle of an unexpected controversy that started when 75 protesters interrupted and demanded his dismissal on grounds that he was endorsing sexist, racist, and homophobic opinions in his lectures. Sarich was quoted as saying, " Heterosexuality is more natural. " and " Human males have larger brains than human females. " These statements generated hostility and opposition in many people, while Sarich maintained that his statements were factually correct. " Well, if I say that homosexuality is less natural . . . than heterosexuality, that ' s true . . . It ' s ludicrous to suggest that you could have a genetic predisposition for some- thing which causes you to produce less. That just doesn ' t work. As far as the brain size thing is concerned, males do have bigger brains than do females, on the average. That ' s a fact ... I don ' t claim that males have bigger brains than females. I report it. I don ' t claim that the sun rises in the east. It ' s true. I have yet, I think, to be challenged for something I said that is supposed to be factually untrue, " asserts Sarich. For Sarich, the " facts " do not bother nor do they frighten him. He doesn ' t hesistate to reveal facts, regardless of the controversy that is sure to follow. He states, " Facts are not inherently sexist or racist-it ' s what you do with the facts, how you allow the facts to affect you own behavior . . . If one wants to define sexism and racism as believing there are functionally significant differences between sexes and between races, then I plead guilty ... a lot of people feel very strongly that, in a sense, one has the responsibility to present only those facu and points of view which are, in their view, socially desirable or lead to socially desirable effects. It ' s what ' s called ' political correctness. ' " In Sarich ' s opinio n, much of the controversy can be attributed to society ' s inability to accept certian truisms, no matter how painful or offensive they may be to the members of the society. " It ' s the explanation that often times bothers people ... in general, human behavior is explained in soaal and cultural terms, and to many people, explaining any aspect of human behavior in biologic, evolutionary, or genetic terms is anathema, and that ' s where the hang-up comes in. Literally, it ' s considered evil. " ex- plained Sarich. Professors play an important role in the student learning process. It is the professor who attempts to transform an otherwise dull subject into an exciting and thought-provoking one by guiding students through difficult concepts and presenting different perspectives and challenging topics. Of all these tasks, Sarich probably values the last one the most because it is through questions and challenge that an individual learns. " If we don ' t want to teach controversial points of view, then why don ' t we just give them the Bible or the Quran? Say, ' Here, it ' s all in here. ' Or, give them the secular equivalent. Give them a non-controversial book . . . they won ' t learn anything from it because it will be boring and irrelevant. What ' s our function except to talk about controversial things? What else are we here for? The only place you have any halfway decent discussion of this material is between myself, my students, and my TAs . . . You don ' t hear any of the so-called protestors or any of my colleagues arguing anything. They just want to censure. There ' s a whole lot of cowardice. People do not want their views challenged. They don ' t want to have an open discussion. What they want is to teach students a catechism, and they want to teach Saint Marx and Saint Durkheim and so forth . . . they don ' t like seeing Darwin or others. " As a means of encouraging and emphasizing the importance of dis- cussion, Sarich organized and lead extra voluntary discussion sections for students who wished to delve more deeply into the issues he introduced. He explained. " Studenu who are taking the class seriously take advantage of the fact that these conroversial issues are discussed at great length in discussion sections, both the ones that I have and the ones that the TAs have. The agenda is determined by the students. I don ' t come to lecture. I just come there and say, ' Ask me questions. ' Some of the issues we spent " Brain size has never been proven to have any correlation to intelligence — Neanderthals had bigger brains than modem humans and no one argues that they were any smarter. And say- ing that homos exuality can ' t be genetically determined is ludi- crous. Being gay doesn ' t erase a person ' s desire to have kids. A lot ol gay men and women who haven ' t come out are rais- ing families, and more and more lesbians are being artificially in- seminated. The argument just doesn ' t stand up. " — Nancy Keizer, Anthropology major hours on. Not that we necessarily came to an agreement, but we discuss, we lay out our positions, and we say what we think and why we think it. If there ' s anybody else who does this in an introductory class, I never heard about it. Most of the kids don ' t come, but the opportunity is there for those who want to learn something. How many big classes have you taken? In how many of those classes did the instructor make himself available for discussion sections? For most professors, you can ' t talk to them at all. " " Past and present students have been overwhelmingly positive, " Sarich notes. " I ' ve gotten one negative letter and lots and lots of positive ones. The amount of acrimony in the class decreases markedly as the semester goes on in the sense that whether the students agree with me is not the important point. They see it as an interesting opportunity to discuss things. This is true even of people who violently disagree with particular issues. The students are great. Any number of students have said or written to me that my class is the best educational experience they have. What I think they mean is that it ' s the class that made the greatest impact on their thinking. " Despite a controversy that caused a lecture to be cancelled and several demands for his dismissal, Sarich felt, " This Anthro I last semester was surely the best Anthro 1 I ' ve ever done. It was a combination of having more of my own readings prepared, good notetaking. more contoversial topics, some new topics I tossed in that weren ' t present before, good students — some ver ' , very sharp students who wouldn ' t let me get away with anything — and a good bunch of TAs. If you talked to students, 1 think they ' d tell you it was a really good class, " Sarich claims. Even the Late Night Notes were what Sarich termed a " best-seller. " there were twice as many subscnptions as there were students in the class — and subscription requests have come from all around. The debate certainly hasn ' t prompted Sarich to change any of his views. If anything, it has strengthened his belief in them. " It ' s interesting to me that some of my faculty enemies have used the term ' brainwashing ' — what that means to me is that I ' m an effective teacher, and I ' m effective at getting across points of view, " he explained. " I do something on this campus that nobody else does. " he clock clicks . . ORALS t ' s 7 pm and you ' re watching rera JSJ Family Ties.

PEOPLE • Studying 27 HAIEL . " Welcome to Berkeley. Now " Say you hate me. Say it first and then we can get started. " OO lO Tl© " " Okay. " I said, " I hate you. " IIKJlll . After this perfunctory ritual, we were able to move on to introductions. " I ' m Bamboo today, ' he told me, though I ' m sure he ' s well aware that he ' s more commonly known in Berkeley as " The Hate Man. " This afternoon he was wearing a silky black bra and a stylish pink sweater, and was having some trouble finding a dry place to lay out his blankets, as an unexpected cloudburst had just soaked his bedding. As Berkeley locals go, the Hate Man is probably one of the most visible, and the most well-liked. He can usually be found wherever right-wing religious rhetoric is being spewed, heckling preachers in defense of the rights of believers and non-believers alike. His wit is sharper and weirder than David Letterman ' s, and on a good day he can play to an audience of over 100 ensnared passers-by. So, the obvious question is, why does he want people to say they hate him? " I feel it ' s a way of caring when we ' re opposite. It shows me that you ' re willing to say it. If you ' ve already said it once and you get angry with me you ' re more likely to say it again. In saying " I hate you, " you discover that it is caring, you are caring, and hopefully get into that space of hating. " What kind of hate are we talking about here? " I distinguish between hostility and hate. Violence is not caring, harsh is not caring. Not " FUCK OFF, " which invalidates the person, but " FUCK YOU. " That would be a caring response. " Bamboo sees the expression of hate and anger as absolutely necessary in relationships. " If I can only be nice to you, " he explained, " then some of the time it ' s going to be a hoax. My feeling is, the moment of realness is going to erode if I can only say nice things to you. " Without this expression of hate, the relationship will become, " increasingly hollow, increasingly fraudulent, a mask for tension, hostility, rage. " Hate, then, is a way to " deal with conflict in a caring way — a direct approach. I ' m not here to please you, I ' m here to run you into the ground. " This observation led into a discussion of the inherent duality of relationships and inner balance. " There ' s me, there ' s you. Yin and yang battle in the material plane. Between opposites that conflict is going to be tested and resolved with power or with caring. Yin can get yang to care. " Here we dove into yet another crucial aspect of this outlook: " To the extent that I care about you then I ' m in the Tao; that ' s the doorway to the Tao — caring. I include negative caring as a part of caring. " Clearly this philosophy, if adopted by others, could have great social ramifications. So I wondered, does Bamboo hope to encourage others to follow this line of thinking " ? " From an ego point of view I want everyone to do it, but in a practical way I don ' t care. Since I ' m not you, I don ' t have to wait around for you to go into the Tao. The Christian model is to say we are one, we ' re all in the same boat. The problem with that is that means you are me.

Q: How did you feel coming to Berkeley ' A: I ' ve been witn Berkeley for a long time. I joined the Berkeley faculty in 1959 And then in 1988, I went down to Irvine as Executive Vice-Chancellor, so I spent two years there I think the two years at Irvine and my experience at Berkeley really helped me a lot to un- derstand the campus and also understand the University of California as a whole So when I first came back in July, in my first speech, I said that I cannot think of any greater honor than serving as Chancellor of this great institution So I was very thrilled to have this opportunity It IS a great institution, I love it, and after 8 months, 9 months. I still feel strongly about it. Q: Do you find there were any preconceptions as to how a Chancellor should be like ' A; I had some idea, generally, because I was Vice- Chancellor here serving under Chancellor Heyman, I was Vice-Chancellor for two to three years, and then I went to Irvine as Executive Vice-Chancellor So Ive been close to Chancellor level meaning I understand the demand and so on But still, even with that background, you cannot really get a true feeling about the awesome responsibility of heading this stimulating and complex institution Q Old you set yourself some goals coming m? A. Yes. I did I set four general goals First is to maintain and further enhance, the excellence level of all our ac- ademic programs I think that is very, very important Especially now with the budget crises The second goal is to continue and promote diversity Not only |ust the undergraduate student body but faculty, administration, campus atmosphere The third goal is to improve un- dergraduate education I love teaching myself. I like to see this campus, not |ust a great research and graduate institution, but also a great undergraduate education in- stitution. My fouah goal is to outreach the community, including working with the city We |ust resolved a treatise as the first step on the People s Park, the relationship between the city and the campus, and also the state, how to work with our alumni, and also our supporters both nationwide as well as international level So those are the four goals I have Q: Have you made a lot of progress at meeting your goals ' A: Yeah, of course nine months is a relatively short lime period but I think we are making great progress. I per- sonally have very good interaction with the students Every day I walk around campus Yesterday. I walked around different classrooms, talked to many students. I spent one hour walking and talking. Q: Is It difficult to find the time to do that ' A: I think you can always find time it you find anything important. So. I actually set aside every day I ' m on campus some time to spend with the students on the one- to-one. or personal level. That really helps me and I en|oy It. Q: What has been your biggest challenge so far ' A: Again. I think for my past nine months, of course.last four. September October, we had a series of tragedies on campus. That was very difficult on a human level which is always tough to handle But I think the campus responded extremely well and all of those unexpected tragic events. I think we really built up a new campus spirit and sense We got tremendous support from our students.from our par- ents, from our community So thats. on a human level. I think our ma|or challenge we expenenced in the Fall For this year. I think on the institutional level, the maior challenge is how to cope with the budget reduction. With a big fee increase coming, how we can still maintain an open access to all students regardless of family finances So we want to have the most qualified students coming to Cal Also, we want to manintain our excellence level despite maior budget cuts Q What steps are you ta ing to deal with the budget cuts? A To deal with the budget cuts, we have been doing, in coniuction with the office of the President, a number of things. We are reducing the staff of the system as a whole, not |ust Berkeley But Berkeley usually amounts to about 20% of the whole University of California system We are reducing some staff, we are limiliting some projected enrollment, we also instituted some budget reduction among various units Although we try to protect some areas like academic programs, student services, which we feel are very important So those are some of the measures. Of course, fee increase is another of the measures which is not very helpful to many of the needy students How do you think your ethnicity has affected your role as Chancellor ' Has it helped or hindered you m any way ' A: I think maybe I would say neutral Certainly, coming from a minority background gave me a better feeling and understanding of the needs of mionties and also to have a diversified student body and institution facing the chal- lenges of the 21st century Which will be very multi- cultural and multiethnic, in terms of both workforce and also working experience I think that helped me. my background On the other hand. I always say I ' m Chan- cellor for the whole campus, for everyone It so happens I ' m Asian-American but that doesn t change me too much. I just do the best for the whole campus community. Past Chancellors have often been accused of tKing racist. Have you found it has been easier for you m this sense ' A: I don t think so Of course, minority students might feel. I might be more sympathetic, maybe easier to understand some of the issues On the other hand, many people feel I should be absolutely fair to all groups, so that IS what I am trying to do Q What would you like to do to diversify the faculty? A We are doing a number of things At the entry level, we have been increasing the percentage of our new faculty hired in the minority and women That helps But we also need to provide adequate support services mentally, so when we have the faculty coming in. actually it is not limited to the minorities or women or faculty members, when they come in we should provide the help and support for them to succeed Make the environment very hospitable to them Q: But there are problems that anse with diversity What have you done to try and deal with these problems ' A: I think it is very important to provide an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable and also to allow them to interact with each other Caucasians should feel very comfortable to interact with African-Americans. Hispanic- Americans Asian-Americans should feel very comfortable to interact with African Americans, and Caucasian I think the campus atmosphere is very important Q As Chancellor, how do you feel you can change the environment ' A, On the personal level. I walk around campus every day, 1 talk to the students Many students now when they see me. they come to talk to me. to say hello, and so on In the very beginning, when I see students they shy away, they didn t want to talk to the Chancellor But I now Ive become like a friend of theirs That s very good I think also, as Chancellor. I can institute a number of measures, of initiatives, to promote bener campus environment, better opportunities to interact among all different groups.

Seldomly do you find a city that has such a tre- mendous variety of foods and restaurants catering to the elite and the common student. Daunting a task as it was, I think that I have now eaten at every single restaurant in Berkeley, ex- cept Chez Panisse (1517 Shat- tuck). i still have trouble digesting the price. I love the cozy atmosphere and French cuisine at Le Bateau Ivre (2629 Telegraph), which means The Drunken Boat. They have a dinner room and a cafe where you can order snacks and aper- itifs. I think that romantic and Eu- ropean ambience at Le Bateau is matched only by the Metropole (2271 Shattuck). The beautiful 17th century German architec- ture amd rustic country atmos- phere with a fireplace remind me of a small cobblestone restaurant I ate in while touring through France. I have been extremely fortu- nate to have been taken out to numerous business dinners and lunches during my stay at Berke- ley. Fourth Street Grill (1810 Fourth Street) serves tasty grilled dishes, especially the salmon and chicken. But don ' t miss the ribs either, although during a business lunch this may require much fi- nesse not to lick your fingers. Norman ' s (3204 College) waiters truly know 36 PEOPLE • Restaurant Guide how to let your business dinner succeed. Prompt service and el- egantly presented dishes allow the host to really impress the guest, but the prices won ' t shock the ac- counting department. I have been to so many Friday night hangouts that I have lost count. Henry ' s Publik House and Grill (2600 Durant) is the quintis- sential college hangout. It also re- minds me of Cheers in Boston. Spat ' s (1974 Shattuck) is decorated in a funky mixture of Cold Rush Era and modern styles. Spats is most famous for its wild drink concoc- tions with funny names. Half the fund here is reading the menu ' s bizarre and vague descriptions of the drinks, it doesn ' t so much list what ' s in the beverage, but details the effect of drinking it. . . Berkeley is famous for its not-so- well-known hangouts too. Flint ' s Barbeque (6609 Shattuck) used to be a outsiders hangout but has since moved mainstream. You can see BMW ' s parked in front of it too. Everett and Jones Barbeque (1955 San Pablo) I think has the better sauce though. When I get bored from studying, I enjoy going hanging out with the Berkeley locals. Walnut Square (Walnut and Vine) boasts some of the best snackeries around. For coffee, there ' s Peet ' s. Just down the street is The Cheese Board and their pizza store next door. They only serve pizza during the after- noon and then only one type of pizza, but I have never been dis- appointed. People line up for their pizza and after one try you ' ll un- derstand why. Zachary ' s (5801 College) has the best deep dish oizza though. The Juice Bar Col- lective also at Walnut Square has terrific auiche and natural juices, especially their orange juice. Wal- nut Square is a great place to grab an inexpensive lunch. One day, I plan to move back Midwest. I ' m still trying to con- vince some of these owners to open some restaurants nearer to my farm. (Fictional story. ) a matter of ste PEOPLE • Restaurant Guide 37 It was the best of TV; It was the worst of TV... IDIOT BOX 38 PEOPLE . TV The 90-91 network season started out with a creative bang. New shows defied con- ventional television defini- tions. There were musicals in the form of " Cop Rock " and " Hull High " ; two Camcorder features, " America ' s Funniest Home Videos " and " America ' s Funniest People " ; a recycled vampire series, " Dark Shad- ows " ; and the critically praised David Lynch soap op- era satire, " Twin Peaks " . All this added to returning favorites such as " China Beach " , " Thirty something " , and " Midnight Caller " . Sadly, most of these shows faced cancellation by mid- season, EXCEPT for " America ' s Funniest Vide- os People " . How could such cheap, contrived, and basical- ly mindless junk succeed over innovive, well-written, high production quality work? One part of the answeer is network bungling. ABC went out on a limb by trying to make Sat- urday night a high ratings TV night. They scheduled " China Beach " and " Twin Peaks " from 9 to 11 pm, hoping to lure the younger viewers home to watch TV. No dice. No one gave up their nghtlife, even to find out who killed Laura Palmer. The only network schedul- ing coup this year was made by upstart fourth network. FOX. They saw a spring ' 90 ratings bonanza with the wacky animated family. " The Simpsons " , and followed with a summer littered with the high-selling " Bart Simpson — Underachiever " t-shirts. FOX rightly gambled that Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie could beat out the perinnial ratings champ, Bill Cosby, and put " The Simpsons " directly opposite " The Cosby Show " at 8 pm Thursday nights. This knocked the Cos down to 5th place (from 1st) at the end of the season and finally put FOX on the charts. FOX fin- ished with with an average 6.4 share of the viewing audience nationwide. Not bad when you consider that each rating point equals 93,000 house- holds, and FOX isn ' t even broadcasting outside of a doz- en major cities. Another surprise slap in the face to thinking people ' s TV included the short-lived re- turn of the romantic comedy, " Anything But Love " . Low ratings cancelled the show last spring, so writers ended with a startling confession of love by Hannah, played by Jamie Lee Curtis. Viewer demand brought the show back this spring, and Hannah and her co-worker confidant, Marty, played by Richard Lewis, finally got into bed together. But after six silly and sexy epi- sodes, ABC put the show back on hiaturs which is TV-land ' s death knell. Reverting true to form, the end of season ratings winners were the old standbys, " Cheers " , " Rosanne " , and " 60 Minutes " . Clever and sophis- ticated " Murphy Brown " , starring Candice Bergan, en- joyed its first top ten season, which helped the lagging third place network, CBS. But with the aging of most of the top rated shows — " Cheers " is 9 years old, for instance — the networks had better begin thinking up some new hit shows to replace them. And fast.

However, Mom did get me pointed in the right direction by giving me What Color Is Your Parachute?. Knowing what you want to do is the first half of the war. But getting the right Job may be the " mother of all battles. " Author Richard Nelson Bolles outlines a creative job-search method that requires you to actively research who you want to work for, find the person who has the power to hire you, and convince her to hire you. Finding the crucial first job has never been easy, but the Class of 1991 certainly has the cards stacked against them. Six or seven months into a recession and the job market is tighter than a Tupperware seal. Consumer spending has been down due to rising un- employment and the economic uncertainties produced by the Persian Gulf War. So, retail and service oriented companies have been extra cautious, i.e. minimal, in hiring. Even so-called " white-collar " jobs which are supposedly recession-proof are feeling the economic pinch. Most of the equipment and weapons used by the US in the Middle East were made and sold to the military months and years before August 1990, so only a handful of companied benefitted from the conflict. The pr eviously booming electronics industry in Silicon Vally was stagnant. IBM layed off 3.8% of its worldwide labor force. Sun Microsys- tems was not even hiring. Classified want-ads in the San Francisco Chronicle were down significantly. And, so, the resumes keep flowing out of my mailbox like so many salmon swimming upstream. Yet, how many will spawn? How may will be too weak for the trip? Will some of them be swiped out of the stream to be eaten by a bear or trapped on a hook? Maybe there are just too few mates for all those poor fish struggling against the current. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the average person changes career three times before retirement. A good thing since that takes the emphasis off of your first job. It doesn ' t have to be what you want to do forever, just for now. If 1 do get desperate for money, 1 can always temp or waitress or telemarket. Until then, the search continues. 40 PEOPLE • Job Searching ?3 o PEOPLE • Job Searching 41 cafe (ka-fa ' ): a restaurant where coffee and other refreshments are served, and people )ften gather to socialize Photos by Humberto Reyes The Corner by Andy Dong Seldom does one find a gathering where people sing songs, talk about life, allow their children to play together, let dogs mingle, or share opinions on literature, movies, and politics Seldom does one find a place where people will wait in line early on Sunday morning with mug or carafe in hand, waiting for the first fresh brew of the day Seldom does one find a warm, well-lit corner store like Peet ' s Coffee Not that Peet s is the only place that serves up great coffee In Berkeley, But unlike other locales, the people who gather at Peet ' s, on Walnut and Vine and across from the Claremont Hotel, bring a community atmosphere to Berkeley, The last time I was there, I remember enjoying the guitar playing of a male female duo It was oddly reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel, Their songs told of peace and harmony, simple pleasures like coming home after work, civil oppression in Eastern Europe, and sometimes about nothing at all Nothing at all but rhythm And the peole flow into and out of Peet ' s in a steady, rhythmic way too.

If he agrees, e Dean forwards the propasal, with a letter of recommendation, to the Provost. After the Affirmative Action Officer screens the case with the Provost, it is sent to a five-member ad-hoc oommittee consisting of members who do not belong to the department of the professor applying for tenure, but whom have knowledge m the professor ' s field of studies. This committee reviews the caao and reports its opinion to the Provost, who then forwards the proposal to the Budget Committee. The Budget Committee reviews the recommendations and supporting materials, such aa teaching evluatlons, published and unpublished work, peer reviews, and awards. If the oposal is agreed upon by the Budget Committee, it is sent back to the Provost for final proval. If tenure is denied by the Provost, the Budget Committee is given the oheince to request another conference and review new information. If tenure is approved by the Provost, the jsor In question redsves a letter from the Chancellor informing him of his approval.

Ghost and Prettv Woman were kicking macho epics like Die Hard 2 and Davs oj Thunder in the dcrricre. But what made these movies so successfull might not have been their proverbial tug at the heartstrings or well-told stories. What might have made them box-office smashes is their commonality with what ' s old and true. Ghost — the age-old story of lovers separated by death, dating back to Romeo arid Juliet; Pretty; Woman — a modern-day Cinderella story — and both movies set to oldies music by the Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison. In fact, even with so-called modern, cosmopolitan thinking, it seems as if the post-Rcaganite generation has more in common with older generations than it does with itself. What was popular in 1990-91 was like a retrospective of past generations, in fashion, stripes and plaids were making a comeback, albeit without the polyester fabric. Wide tics were in — 3.5 inches was about the norm. The psychadelic reds, greens and oranges of the 60 ' s and early 70 ' s were just as popular as ever. Fuschia Is not dead! And people thought that high-tech machinery would change our lifestyles. Sociologists thought that fax machines and cellular phones would revolutionize the workplace. High speed efficiency and the ability to shorten the work day were popular sales slogans for these miniature time-saving machines. But the fact was, workers began voicing the same complaints as past workers did when punch-card machines and the electronic typewriter were introduced — buttonitis. Yes, the arthritic feeling in finger joints was not simply your grandparents ' disease. And instead of a shorter work day, the work day was still just as long but more intense and fast paced as humans attempted to keep pace with their mechanical marvels. Remember back to a time when environmental activists were labeled Communists seeking the downfall of American industry by forcing them to reduce production to protect the environment? Today, the environmental movement is the single most unifying political trend. Everyone is an environmentalist. Even corporations who were once staunch anti-environmentalism have jumped on the bandwagon and used environmentalism as a selling point — Dow chemical ' s ad for double-walled oil tankers followed by a chorus of claps by animals; McDonald ' s phasing out of styrofoam servers; Proctor and Gamble working on biodegradable or recyclable diapers; insignias on products claiming " Ozone Friendly " . The new gen- eration has only begun to appreciate the wisdom of the older. A generation gap — that ' s doubtful. The only gap that many have pointed to is the rift between ethnicities. That is still a problem too. Like they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Our most recent concern has been to lower not only cholesterol, but fat levels; American society is paying more attention to fat content than any other nutrition variable. This has translated into higher consumption of low-fat and skim milk and lower consumption of red meat (24 pounds less). Though there have been improvements in fat consumption, Americans are still failing in the fruit and vegetable department. A California poll conducted In 1989 showed that two out of three Californians ate fewer than the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables a day; eating fruits and vegetables is supposed to reduce the risk of cancer. Despite our efforts to look as well as be healthy, we are generally dissatisfied with the efforts and results of the endeavor. A survey conduced by an institue operated by Times Mirror Co. indicates that 30 percent of the adults questioned are happy with their looks, while 42 percent consider themselves overweight. Seventy-three percent believe that exercise can improve their health and extend their lives, but only 59 percent admit that they exercise regularly. Excuses for not exercising range from getting enough exercise from normal daily activites to not having enough time. Both the food and weight loss industries have capitalized on our dissatisfaction and lack of motivation. Though we are more health conscious than before, we do not prevent ourselves from consuming pure junk food in the form of cakes, candies, cookies, potato chips and soft drinks. To minimize the guilt we feel from indulging ourselves, the food industry has been actively participating in the labelling game. " Sinful " foods have been re-packaged, re-labelled, and reincarnated as " healthy, " " low-cal, " " low-fat, " " fat-free, " or " lite, " among many other " healthy " adjectives. Of the 9192 new food products introduced in 1989, more than 10 percent claimed to be low-fat or low-caiorle. Over the past three years, low-fat product introductions nearly quadrupled. Unfortunately, the labelling is misleading, at least to the Food and Drug Administration and various consumer groups, who say that many of the " new and improved " products are no better than their earlier counterparts. In addition to food manufacturers, the weight loss industry is also taking advantage of our obession. Nobody can count the number of times we see or hear a Jenny Craig, a Nutri Systems, an Ultra-Slim Fast, or a Dynatrim commercial, but we definitely remember all of their success stories. The industry is certainly a lucrative one, earning $33 billion a year. While these programs can lead to tremendous weight loss a t first, one usually regains ail of the weight in a short period of time. More often, the programs are psychologically and physiologically detrimental. Clinets can increase their binging. They may come to fear " real ' food — food that is not prepackaged or processed into powder form. They may also suffer discomforts such as fatigue, depression, sleeplessness, dizziness, loss of consciousness, and even heart failure. Health has remained an important concern in our lives, but we haven ' t done much to improve it. Sure, we ' re paying more attention to what we eat and what we do after we eat, but we ' re essentially failing to better ourselves. Instead, we have bought the easy way to health, in the form of temporary and instantaneous " solutions " like weight loss programs and " light " foods. We might have better luck if we go through the pain and agony of consuming fruits and veggies and exercising until we become immobilized by fatigue. PEOPLE .

In the past year and a half, they ' ve put out two tapes, toured up and down the coast, and opened for Primus (another Berkeley band) at the Warfield.

" So J F B says Stuart Popejoy, singer and bassist for Bar- S R B rington-gestated band Squtd. m Before they were Squid they were Tommy . Centric Universe, and before that most of the guys in the band were different, so it ' s not clear when exactly Squid became Squid, but roughly the same people have been playing together for a year and a half now, and the name appeared inexplicably at about the same time, so that ' s a good guess. Right now the band consists of the aforemetioned Stuart, Sean Ken- nerly, D ' Armous Boon, Maureen Spranza, Aaron Stewart, and Andy Borger. Commenting on the regular turnover of bandmembers, Stuart men- tioned how hard it is to keep the band going and be a student at the same time. " That ' s why there ' s not that many student groups. We have a lot of new members — we ' re not too concerned about consistency. Okay Stuart, any final comments? " Tell ' em I said something profound. . .

MOW Old the Dana torm ' Ted: We were practicing as another band. Me and Matt used to lam and them two other guys appeared How did that happen ' Ted: I can t explain it because I don t know how the hell it happened They |ust appeared one day So then we began playing some pretty normal stuff for a bit. until one day we listened to Wimplewmch What ' s Wimplewmch ' Ted: They were this obscure band from the late sixties We listened to these two songs of theirs and after hearing them we decided no one could play these songs and live So then we found out Wimplewmch disappeared in 1970. which IS the same year most of the Melts members were born It seems after recording Save my Soul Wimplewmch couldn t record any more shit, so they lust died I was then we realized we were the incarnation of Wimplewmch So after Christmas break we started playing again. The first time we played Save my Soul " it took us three hours to recover from the effort We figured fuck this, we can t take three hours to recover from every song we play. At about this time we made our pilgrimage to the hills. What happened then ' Ted I can t really say much about it because It was a mystical experience Let me |ust say that we found the answer, and it was under a rock. From that time forward our theory is that we have a direct neural link between our instruments and our brains How did the band get its name? Ted At the time we had the mystical experience it felt like our brains were melting. We then decided one of our basic concepts would be to melt people s brains- What are the future plans of the Melt? Ted: We re on a quest for world domination. We basically want to control the minds of everyone on earth. by Rod Maharg The Partridge Heads are the coolest seventies cover band ever.

Cal students called it, " a bunch of bullshit. " Stanford fans called it ' revenge. " The media called it " miraculous " and " The Play: Part n. " However, all these terms are somehow deficient. The best way to describe the 1990 Big Game is sim- I ply " exdting. " Going into the I game, the Bears were second in the Pac-10, 25th in the nation, and I four (Continued Next Page) GOCnUl! Z j W c - CAMPUS • Big Game 135 point favorite . They had played a great season, and had received a bid to go to the Copper Bowl, their first bowl game in eleven yeare. Stanford, on the other hand, had played a disappointing season. The uneducated might say that it should have been a blowout for the Bears. How- ever, as every experienced Bear fan knows, during the Big Came records and odds mean nothir g. The laws of prob- ability char ge As expected, Cal dominated the first half, scoring on a 77-yard drive in the second quarter They later scored again on a 15-yard pass to Sean Dawluns. All Stanford could manage was two field goals. At halftime, the Bears were comfortably ahead 17-6. However Cal fell apart in the second half. Stanford scored a field goal and a touchdo vn in the third quarter to make the game 17-15. Then, in the fourth quarter, Stan- ford scored again on a field goal. After 12 utuswered points, the Bears trailed 17-18 But this was not to last for long Cal shot down the field and scored on a 8-yard run by Russel White. This was followed by a two point con- version, nuiking the score 25-18. With just under two minutes left, Stanford took over the ball deep in their own territory It was at this point that things got exdting. Stanford quarterback Jason Palumbis led the Cardinals on a dramatic 87-yard drive down the field. The Bear were uiuble to stop them. With twelve seconds left, Palumbis hit Ed McCaffrey on a 19-yard touchdown. The score was 25-24. Stanford went for a two point con- version, tfut)wing to McCaffrey again Cal comemback John Hardy made a leaping interception. The crowd went wild and everyone stormed the field in celebration. We had won, hadn ' t we? The clock still had twelve seconds on it, but it would take a miracle for Stanford to win. A nurade is what they got. After assessittg Cal a delay of game penalty, the Cardir als attempted an on-side kick The game should fiave ended right there, but somehow Stanford iruiiaged to recover the kick. They were still too far away to attempt a field goal, and elected to pass The pass was incomplete. Again, the game should have ended there However, the referee called Cal for a very doubtful " roughing the passer " perulty. The perulty put Stanford within field goal range. Enraged Cal faiu watched in horror as Star ford attempted, and completed, a 34 -yard kick. Stattford fans stormed the field It should have never happened. The odds were too great that Stanford would win However, it was just another chapter in the bizane se ]uence we call, the Big 136 CAMPUS • Big Gome Hope Turns To Sorrow irr " Cal 24 — Stanford 25 138 CAMPUS • Big Gams CAMPUS TRAGEDIES •v J ana ' never leave aga 19; Robert Douglas Sc- After a few w- : tectofs, arul tea more cautioosiy Barely two w police arvJ told of the United M 5:26 pm that da Police took th university builo Freshmen with The campus £ bomb in the He; shavings.

Are you looking for an excuse not to work? Have you ever wanted to see the world? If you responded, yes, yes, and yes, then worry no more! Why work, when you can travel? Being young and irresponsible is usually nothing to be too proud of, but for the traveler it ' s a blessing. Unlike our parents who require clean clothes and a warm bed to sleep in at night, we can make by with considerably less. If you haven ' t guessed yet, the trip I ' m outlining is the backpack thing. That ' s right, almost everyone else has done it, so why haven ' t you. The basic requirements are a framed CAMPUS • Traveling 143 144 CAMPUS • Traveling backpack, some good walking shoes, a youth hostel pass, a student ID, your passport, a money belt, and of course your " Let ' s Go Wherever " book. With these few essentials you ' ll be prepared to see the world with little or no planning at all. You ' ll find yourself suddenly exposed to foreign cultures and people, and at the same time you ' ll be having fun. Of course, there is one catch. You do have to have some money. However, being on a tight budget doesn ' t mean you have to starve yourself. One fun method of saving money which is commonly overlooked is camping. Camping usally costs between $1 to $3 per night per person. In Europe, the European youths have been camping since they were 15, In addition, they often bring backpacking stoves and even cook their own meals. But if roughing it sounds too much of a hardship to you, don ' t give up on camping yet because uncommon to the masses, camping is safer, cleaner, and cheaper. Youth hostels are OK if you don ' t mind sleeping with one eye open or using bathrooms which are sometimes useable and at others times enough to make you envy a bear in the woods. Camp grounds in Europe are used by Euro peans who naturally are going to expect higher standards than a poor foreign traveler who can ' t even speak the language. These camp grounds are like KOA camp grounds in the U.S. They have sites for cars and hikers and have bathroom facilities in a building. That ' s right, a BUILDING. No shack, no hole in the ground, a genuine building. One major problem with Youth Hostels are that they kick everyone out by 9 am until around 2 pm each day for cleaning. This means you can never sleep in, which if you just had a wild night out on the town may be essential. In addition, as hinted previously. Youth Hostels are not very safe. With so many people coming and going, theft often occurs even to the wary. At the camp grounds, because everyone is so vulnerable to theft, an honor system exists which has never been broken. Well, maybe not never, but at least the family atmosphere may be partially responsible. Of course, there is one draw back with camping. Camp grounds are usually on the outskirts of the towns which may mean additional bus rides to and from them. But the money saved, fhendly people, spaciousness, and clean facilities are well worth this small cost. One last tip is to bring a sleeping bag whether or not you plan on camping. If you are in Europe using the trains, you will probably end up spending many nights traveling. The sleep- ing bag will make you much more comfortable and allow you to save on a nights lodging. At the very least you ' ll save on sheet rentals at a Youth Hostel. But be careful especially on the trains. Sleeping travelers are always vulnerable to a daring thief. However, don ' t let all this talk about theft scare you. You really shouldn ' t worry. I only lost my wallet once on the " Pick Pocket Special " bus route in Rome. It was my own fault.

CAMPUS • Traveling 145 GREEKS by Jeni Ternstrom The old picture of the rich, beer-swilling frat boy and the hair-sprayed, loose sorority girl is a persistent one. We all know its not accurate, but what is? To many of us outside Greek life (and I am outside: When I received a brochure about " Greek life " before I came to Cal, I actually wondered why there were so many people from Greece in Berkeley, and why they would be contracting me, the secrecy surrounding initiations, hazing, and rituals only fuels the myths and stereotypes. As fraternities and sororities enter a new decade -facing tough new alcohol laws, declining rush, changing demographics, and increasing challenges to their elitist reputation — The Greek system finds itself 146 CAMPUS •Greeks redefining its goals and personality. Ever wary about stereotypes, fraternity and sorority members are quick to point out thie benefits of philantfiropy, leadership, scholarsfiip, and brotherhood that they provide. Today unknown to most, phi- lanthropy has become on going programs to help the community. " I was attracted to fraternities by the parties, " admits one member, " but what I ' ve found is a great opportunity for friend ship, academic help, socializing — and parties. " He smiles. As much as they despise the stereotyping of " frat boys " and " sorohty girls, " quite a bit of intra-Greek stereotyping goes on, too- CAMPUS • Greoks 147 witness certain unflattering couplets and telling acronyms that make the rounds. Both fall and spring rush at Cal attracted lower number than ex- pected this year, causing some people to speculate on the Greek system ' s future. Although the system is far from dying, it is changing, both at Berkeley and nationally. Some fear that the shrinking will create a vicious circle: as fraternities and sororities become smaller, they may tend to attract only the people who fit the sterotypes. Others say that this shrinking may ultimately be tjeneficial, creating 148 CAMPUS •Greeks stronger bonds between remaining members and a tighter social scene. Space rush this year has tjeen attributed to a number of factors. Some people may be reluctant to take on the added financial strain in these tough times for the economy, University Greek Advisor mark Gelsinger said in the " Daily Californian. " Other students may simple not feel that they ' re a part of the Greek tradition. As fraternities ponder strict new alcohol laws already in effect at other schools, particularly because of insurance risks, some members say that limited alcohol at parties would further decrease membership. Cal has a relatively small Greek segment — about 14% of all CAMPUS • Greeks 149 undergraduates are currently in 44 fraternities and 14 sororitiess. (A disputed campus survey shows that 70% of those members are " white. " ) The low numbers, combined with Cal ' s already diverse stu- dent body, makes the Berkeley Greek experience unique. " Berkeley is su ch a lit eral school that the Greeks cant just be the conservative elitists that they are at other schools, " says one freshman sorority member. " My pledge class has a diversity that my friends at other schools can ' t imagine. " " The Cal Greek experience is like no other, " sums up a friend. 150 CAMPUS •Greeks CAMPUS .

The " C " symbolized California spirit. In the past, it was a tradition for freshmen to paint the Big " C " green. The sophomores were irked since it was their job to keep the Big " C " painted gold. On the eve before a Stanford game, the Big " C " was guarded from opponents carrying red paint. . .an all night vigil was kept. Andy Smith Eulogy closes a Big Game Rally. Andrew L. Smith coached the famous football teams of the 1920 ' s, including the " wonder team " which went undefeated one season and outscored its opponents 115-16. His sudden death in 1926 shocked the campus. In 1948, Mel Venter recounted Smith ' s death at the Big Game rally, and GarfT Wilson was asked to prepare a eulogy. The reading of the eulogy at the rally became a tradition. The eulogy em- phasizes the philosophies of clean living and good sports- manship taught by Coach Smith. The fire flickers low and burning candles are held, as the Eulogy brings the rally to a close in the inner shadows of the Greek Theater. Big Game Week and Reunions preceed the playing of the Stanford California football game each November. In the past. Big Game week consisted of the singing of Ca- lifornia songs for a few minutes at the start of each class, spontaneous rallies between classes, and a rally on the night before the game. Garff Wilson wrote, in " Color Them Blue and Gold, " that " a lost tradition was the practice of singing in classes on the Friday before the Big Game and before other important football games. Some- times, the instructor himself would start the singing, sometimes he would call on a student to do it, sometimes it began spontaneously. The singing lasted for five or ten minutes, then the serious business of 160 CAMPUS. Traditions Traditions instruction took over. " This tradition condition for many years, however by the early 1960 ' s it had almost dis- appeared, being upheld by only a few loyal professors. The night before the Big Game continues to be a traditional time for alumni to attend class reunions. Some classes work hard to collect a signifigant sum of money to present as a gift to the Chancellor. This gift supports an academic " chair " . . .meaning, it supports a professor ' s financial needs so that he can continue to " sit " (remain) at the campus. Stanford Axe first appeared at a Stanford-California base- ball game in S.F., April 1 5, 1 899, when the 1 5 " steel blade mounted on a four-foot handle was displayed in the Stanford rooting section to the accompaniment of the taunting axe yell. At the close of the game, irate Califor- nians wrested the axe form its guardians and succeeded in outdistancing the Stanford pursuit. The awkward handle was sawed off in a butcher shop. The blade was wrapped in butcher paper and hidden under a young man ' s over- coat. Stanford enlisted the help of San Francisco po- licemen who guarded the enterances to the ferries, the only transportation across the bay. Our young Califor- nian recognized a young woman friend and peacefully escorted her past the guards, onto the boat. The axe remained in Berkeley for 31 years. For the annual Axe Rally, it was brought from the vaults of the First National Bank in an armored car guarded by the Rally Committee and the freshmen. Stanford ' s recovery attempts were unsuccessful until the evening of April 3, 1930, when 21 Stanford students invaded Berkeley. As the axe was being returned to the bank, one of the Stan- ford men, posing as a newspaper photographer, called for a picture. Flashlight powder was ignited and a tear bomb tossed among the guards, as other of the " 2 1 " grab bed the axe and rushed it to a waiting car. CAMPUS • Traditions 161 In Stanford, the axe remained hidden in a bank vault for three years until cooler heads among the alumni of both institutions, suggested it be made a football trophy to be awarded annually to the winner of the Big Game. Card Stunts between the halves of football games had their beginnings at the Big Game of 1908, when both California and Stanford rooters appeared in white shirts and rooter caps which were one color on the outside and another color on the inside. By reversing the caps, simple designs such as block letters could be produced. At the Big Game of 1914, sets of stiff cards of varying colors cut to a uniform size were supplied to each Ca- lifornia rooter. Through the years, ingenious card stunt committees have evolved elaborate stunts including the traditional " Cal Script " in which a huge " Cal " appears to be written by a great unseen pen, across the rooting section. " Oski " , taken from the " Oski, wow, wow! " cheer, was the name given to the various bear cubs tried out as Berkeley mascots. As the cubs grew larger and more dangerous, the idea of having a live mascot had to be abandoned. At a 1941 freshmen rally, William Rockwell appeared dressed in a padded yellow sweater, blue pants, oversized shoes, large white gloves, and a paper mache head caricaturing a bear. This outfit was adopted for the costume worn by a student, who represents the official Bear mascot. Oski ' s identity is kept strictly secret. Oski will be 50 years old in the fall of 1991. . .Happy Birthday, Oski! Freshmen-Sophomore Brawl was organized in 1907 after the banning of the Charter Hill rush. The rush was a race between freshmen and sophomores to see who could be the first to paint their class numerals on Charter Hill the evening before Charter Day. When the rush was banned because it was becoming too rough, the Big " C " was built to replace the numerals. However, the brawl continued after 1907 in a different form. . .the men of each class dressed in their oldest clothes and met on the athletic fields for push-ball contests, jousting and trying matches, and a tug-of-war.The night before the brawl, Kleeberger Field was watered down so that it would be good and 162 CAMPUS •Traditions muddy for the tug-of-war. Afterwards, there was a contest in which the participants tried to catch a greased pig, not an easy task, especially if you were still muddy from the tug-of-war. The brawl was supervised by members of the Big C Society to prevent undue roughness. The brawl continued through 1968 until it faded out of existence. Rallies on the eve of athletic events began as inter- collegiate competition developed, particularly with Stan- ford, in 1891. In 1903, the Greek Theater became the sight of bonfire rallies. The Axe Rally was the one oc- casion of the year on which the Stanford Axe was taken from its bank vault and shown to the student body. Previous to 1919, the rally was held the night before the Big Game. In 1 9 1 9, it was decided that the rally would be held before the opening of the Stanford California base- ball series. The signifigance of the rally died in 1 930, but a rally before the night of the Big Game remained active. The Big Game Rally is now called the Axe Rally only in those years in which California is in possesion of the axe. Class Structure: For many decades, each class- freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors- had its own organ- ization, held its own meetings, and staged its own ac- tivities. The officers included the traditional President. Vice-President, etc., but in addition, there was always a class yell leader. These class structures no longer exist. The Band: What would the campus be like without the California band which includes the Straw Hat, Concert, and Marching Bands. The Marching Band celebrates its 100th birthday this year. Happy Birthday, Cal Band! The great California band follows its own tradition of playing " Hail to California " before athletic events, and " All Hail " at the end. In the past, students and Cal alumni would stand to sing " All Hail " before leaving the stadium, this is no longer the case. mmati mm: CAMPUS • Traditions 163 Q D I It ' s a joyous sight — eight complete floors of nothing but students, make that, PARENTLESS students, allowed to wreak whatever havoc their hearts desire.

Ilkt As the new academic year ushers in, so does the ter- ror of having to live with a perfect stranger. There is an eery sense of anxiety as you enter the monstrosities of cement and steel. " What if questions race through your mind; what if my roommate does not like me, what if 1 get a zit on the first day of school, what if the showers are gross and the food disgusting, what if . . .? As your heart pounds, you open the door to your room, expecting someone or something to jump out at you and suck you in, but the room is empty, so you set your stuff down on one side, making sure not to cross the invisible dividing line. Then you hear the door- knob rattle; you realize Its your roommate entering — the per- son you must spend the next nine months with. As the tension mounts, you try to hide it with an uneasy smile and as the door swings open, you utter the lame words of, " Er . . . hi . . . I ' m, uh, your roommate ... " And thus were the days of the first weeks of school. After the second grueling week of having to crash class es, stand in two hour lines and eat cardboard meals, you finally realize that you are liv ing with an Im perfect Strang er. no longer does the " invisible dividing line " exist Everything is so jumbled to gether that you can hardly separate your own underwear!

Staying up till all hours of the night playing Tetris and eating Top Dogs has not been that helpful in class or to your health for that matter. Midterms are in a few days, papers are due in a week, all your friends seemed to keep up even while they goofed around, and your parents are coming to visit during the weekend. You try to get some work done, but your brain is not used to working, so you try getting help. All the tutorials were last week and the earliest opening to see a counselor is in two weeks; by then, you ' ll be dead! And thus, roll around the inevitable all nighters! You have your coffeepot going, the Coke machine pumped and your junkfood stash laid out before you. Your friends are calling you every half hour to make sure you ' re working and to see if you ' re done so you can watch a movie with them. Your roommate in- sists on having music on, and people are bouncing off the walls in the hallway. You begin to think of " if only " statements: if only 1 had done this a week ago, if only my friends would leave me alone, if only I hadn ' t come here, if only . . . there ' s no way out; you have to do the work. At about three in the morning, you begin to freak out. You feel this sudden urge to scream out the window, if not jump out, so you do it. You have this craving to eat all the candy in the vending machines, so you do it. You want to run down the hall and back twenty times, so you do it. You have to finish all your work but just can ' t do it! " The horror, the hor- ror . . .

Or so we like to flatter ourselves. Nearly every house has a story to tell. First there ' s Kingman, up the street from Cloyne, which was the Living Love Center in the ' 70 ' s, and has a finger of Strawberry Creek running alongside it. Then there ' s Casa Zimbabwe (CZ) which is known for its " 99-cent " parties. And we can ' t forget Lothlorien (named after the elf ' s castle in J.R.R.

In exchange for a room -and -board rent that ' s cheaper than you ' ll find anywhere else in Berkeley, each person has to work five hours a week for the house.

For example, you would think that everyone would cheer the fact that the football team had a great season and had recieved Its first Invitation to a Bowl Game In eleven years. However, there were protesters out- side Memorial Stadium during the Big Game, pro- testing the fact that our team was planning on playing In the Copper Bowl in Arizona. Why all the ruckus? Believe it or not, it all began over the location of the Superbowl. During the 1990 state elections, the people of Tuscon, Arizona voted down a bill that would have made Martin Luther King Day a holiday there. This incident probably would have gone unnoticed by the rest of the United States, if It had not been for NFL commissioner Paul Tagllabue. Knowing that the 1993 Superbowl was scheduled to take place at Tuscon, Tagllabue announced that unless Tempe voted for a Martin Luther King holiday, the location of the Superbowl would be changed. His reason for doing this was the fact that the majority of the players in the NFL are black, and to not have a Martin Luther King holiday was a racial insult towards blacks. The controversy around the NFL ' s decision grew and grew until Cal found itself in the center of the controversy. The Cal football team had recieved a bid to go to the Copper Bowl, and since Cal is a very vocal school on mi- nority rights, there was a question as to whether Cal should accept the Invita- tion. There were protests against the team attending the Copper Bowl, and many black rights organ- izations, such as the NAACP urged Cal not to go. On the other hand, many students and play- ers felt that Cal had played a great season and deserved a bowl game. In the end, the football team discussed the Issue among themselves, and decided that they should go. The Chancellor con- firmed their decision. The players attended the Cap- per Bowl wearing black emblems with the Initials MLK on them. Cal soundly beat Wyoming 17-15 after a hair-raising ending, and all controversy was forgotten in the victory celebrations that followed. by Adrian Park •, ' ■?= 182 CAMPUS • FaU Sports Sports CAMPUS • Winter Sports 183 184 CAMPUS • Winter Sports CAMPUS • Winter Sports 185 186 CAMPUS .

UC Berkeley is not yet i guarantee housing to all in incoming freshmen So what s a neophyte Berkeleyite to do ' ' Unless your re luck en ' to get a high number in the dorm lottery or win a place in a co-op or perhaps you re member of Greek organizatt that Is kind enough to let its pledges live in the house, well, my fnend, you may have to look for « community For someone unfamiliar with scouring the housing market, here are a few tips from a war-scarred veteran. TlfvliNG The UC housing booklet advises that you should reserve at least a week for your housing ! NOT!! Reserve at least a month to look tor a place, particularly it you want your own aprtment within walking distan of campus Share rentals — rooms in private homes, shared apartment, rooming houses, — are easier to find arx may take only a week or two to find a suitable situation The best time of year to start is in early f ay when graduatinf students are leaving, but you can look most anytime throughout the summer August is the most competitive tiiTM since classes are starting. DON ' T BE PICKY: This is the most important thing to keep in mind because the more selective you are. the (ew«i options you have f ake a list of what factor you absolutely must require in an apartment or house, and then cut thaf list in half You may want a balcony, covered parking and a furnished apartment, but don t count on it PRICE RANGE: Rooms in private houses range from $200 for |ust the room to $400 including kitchen privileges and utilites. kitchen, bathrooms, etc. One bedroom and studio apartments average at $400 a month depending upor amenities and location Two bedrrom aprtments and houses range from $600-$! 100. Three or more bedroorr houses can start at $900 and go up to $1800 depending upon size. WHERE TO LOOK: Your first resource should be the UC Community Housing Office at the corner of Bowditch anc Haste. Only UC Students have access to these listings The listings are updated daily so make sure to look EVERY DAY — moring is the best time Hours are 9am-4:30pm f onday to Friday f ost are roach infested but you will learn to live with this luxury. They do not give out listings over the phone so make sure to write down your information accurately HOW TO LOOK: Be ruthlessly aggressive!! Its a jungle there, every man for himself Get your listings early and call immediately even if it says evenings only ' or " after 6pm ' . When you call a potential landlord, be polite and brief. Ask for information about the place and ask when he she is showing the apartment and make an appointment. Don ' t[ expect anyone to call you back — call them back because they probably have over 20 people on their lists. When you go to see a place, bring all information that may be pertinent: current and past rental addresses, account numbers, credit card numbers, drivers license, car registration information, and personal referencai (basically carry your whole life with you in your wallet, purse, or backpack). This is necessary because i 196 CAMPUS •Housing indlords ask you to till out an applicaiotn. Basically, they want to see if you ' re a safe credit risk and a good tenant. If ou don ' t fiave this information for yourself, use your parent ' s credit information. You will probably have to have your arents co-sign the lease. After you ve seen the place, thank the person who is showing it and following up with hone call. You might want to make out a tenant resume with all of the necessary information on one sheet(ha,ha). ust make sure that it is clear and concise, like any resume. KNOW THE AREA: A map of Oakland and surrounding cities is the most important investment you can make. You light also get an AC Transit map (write to AC Transit, care of U.R.A.BUS, Oakland. CA94612). Become familiar with le areas you want to live in. Check to see the distance from campus, if there are grocery stores and laundrymals in le area, and parking. Keep in mind that there are many very nice, quiet areas of Oakland (if you have the money to fford them) that students live in Albany, parlicuarly near Solano Ave., is also another drug-infested area where treet gangs run free, but overall it is a wonderful little community with fancy shops and cafes. OTHER PLACES TO LOOK: In the East Bay. there are three mam listing services. These places provide you with pdated listings for a fee (well over your price range). Homefinders at 21 58 University Ave,, features a computerized 4 hr. phone-in service (Call 1 -900-FOR-RENT). Berkely Connection at 2840 College Ave , provides new listing every ay at 3am (the perfect time to beat the crowd to the new listings). Spacefinders at 1798 Shatlack Ave,, publishes 25 refund if you secure a rental from somewhere other than their service. The listings tend to overlap since there is o fee for the landlords (but there should be, to weed out the crap that gets in these listings). Another search method that is very popular is the finder ' s fee. You see the signs all over and the ads fill the Daily :al, ' $200 for a 1 bedroom apt , ' $500 finder s fee These offers produce mixed results Sometimes, landlords do ee the ads and call up the person offering the money. But just as often, the flyers and ads go unnoticed. As a point f information you should know that accepting a finders fee is illegal in Berkeley, but then again so is drugs, sex. and 3ck and roll and everyone still does it As with any venture, be prepared Once you have found the apartment of your dreams, |ump at it, knowing you will robably move within the year House-hunting in Berkeley can be frustrating, but the rewards are worth it When ou ' re sitting in your own living room, kicking back on the couch, which you found next door in the trash (but it will do 3r now), and not worrying about someone telling you to keep your feet off the termite-infested coffee table, you II ppreciate the time and effort spent finding your new home. - Laura Bass CAMPUS • Housing 197 T a e School INDUSTRY Once upon a time, paying for a college education was relatively simple. Today, it ' s not so easy to Finance Your Education. w hen times were simpler, one could count on paying for college by busting a few tables, running miscellaneous errands, pruning a few hedges, getting a job at a summer camp or the parents ' workplace, grovel for the rest from the parents. But with a soft economy and the Bay Area ' s high cost of living, funding an education can be more difficult than the classes themselves. Nonetheless, Berkeley ' s low tuition, even with the 40% increase, and rent controlled housing market do ameliorate the situation. The question is, where does one find the financial aide? Talk to any of the financial aid counselors and they might respond by recommending signing up for a Pell Grant, one or all of the Cal Grants and a Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL). The Grants have the extra added bonus that one does not have to give any of the money back! GSL ' s offer 98 CAMPUS » Financing Ynur FHiirrtfinn Money from scholarships is but one way to create positive cash flow into your checking account. Many students have found that working your way through college may mean big business too. For instance, the cartoon map of Berkeley that is seen in store windows was the idea of a college student, now turned into a million dollar business. The ASUC has a corner reserved in the MLK Jr. Student Union for student entrepeneurs. People ' s Pasta and the popcorn stand are wholly student owned and run. Other student-run services offered on campuses na- tionwide include food delivery servie, wake up calls, bed tuck-in and condom delivery. Perhaps the most famous service is Starv- ing Students, a student-founded and run moving company. En- trepeneurialism is not dead in America! low interest loans to students payable starting 6 months af- ter receiving the intended degree, presumably allowing time to look for a job or loaf around in Europe. In addition to the " free " money offered by the Grants, the Undergraduate Scholarship matches stu- dents academic record to scholarships availible through endowments and gifts to the university. How- ever, this service works only if the student signs up at the office. Matriculation at Cal and a 4.0 gpa do not guar- antee the student a scholar- ship. These scholarships gen- erally appear on the Financial Aid Offer form or, as the writer pleasantly discovered, pop out of nowwhere some- times. The top 100 Freshmen receive a $100 scholarship from the Edward Frank Kraft Endowment — something to think about while mulling over calculus. To qualify for the most fi- nancial aid. . . ► you must have declared yourself financially inde- pendent from your parents for two fiscal years in a row in order to qualify for inde- pendent status. That means, save and file your income tax returns even if you only worked at your corner drug store as a stockboy. Financial aid is available — just find it! CAMPUS • Financing Your Education 199 u Most graduates believe that wtnen you leave Berke- ley, you will depart with skills and knowledge that you will apply directly to your chosen profession. Some- times, this IS the case, John Cooke, a Cal graduate who has been a moot court judge at the University of Maryland as well as having won many awards and clerkships, accredits much of his success to his psychology major John said, " Because of my background in psychology, I have learned how to deal with clients But I chose law after participating in Cal in the Capitol in Washington DC because I saw that lawyers set the policy for society " Darly Dunn, another Cal graduate, found he had been taught at Berkeley, the skills he needed for his pro- fession as a financial supervisor for AT T He claims that It was the skills he learned from his organizational psychology major that helped him pursue an MBA and to perform successfully at his job Similarly, Myra Cren- shaw draws upon her undergraduate training for her present job Her electrical engineering major has al- lowed her to become a Systems Test Engineer, re- sponsible for analysing systems software and unit de- velopment However, many times students enter careers not directly linked to their undergraduate major. They may find that what they are actually doing for a career, is not what they expected to do For example, Ted Williams, class of 1986, became a financial analyst after acquiring an MBA, however, he did not go the traditional business administration route He originallly majored in legal studies, " because it was interesting and gave me nsight into how people think. However, the diversity of the student population had a great impact on my . " success today The people skills I acquired through interacting with people from different backgrounds matured me " Jeanine Lynch, . ■ class of 1987, agrees He said, " I chose genetics because it was A fascinating and because of the oppurtumties to meet people from the health professions " However, she believed that it was her Masters in public health that prepared her for her position in Health Finances in the Office of the President Often you may choose a major, but may not necessarily want to continue in that field It is alright if you do not have a plan traced in cement Ted has some sound advice for this year ' s class " Be aware that graduating from college is jusi the beginning Keep an open mind C H O S E 200 CAMPUS .

Professors know it. Parents know it. Employers know it. Student energy is a force to be reckoned with. In recog nition of the strength of this largely untapped reservoir, many groups which rely on volunteers recruit heavily on campus. If the cause is trendy enough (like apartheid was a few years ago, or environmental work is now) organizations have a decent chance of flnding enough students to keep the phones answered and the flyers posted. Other volunteer posts popular with students include those geared toward partictilar majors or future job op- pommities, such as intenuhips or research. One of the most common routes of community involvement for students is assisting at elementary, junior high, and high schools — institutions which students have a great deal of experience with. Depending on the school and the program involved, volunteers may work as assistant teachers, tutors, or group activity leaders. So how do the students who get helped feel? What do they think of these strange, maybe imposing, always older and wiser people who come around every week offering smiles and support? Says Misty Estacio of James Logan High School in Union Gty, " Having college students come is great. It gives us more hope and more faith. We see you guys making it and it gives us the knowledge that we can do the same. We get to see people Uke us doing what we want to do. " Felice Martin agrees that college students give a good impression of institutiotis of higher learning. " It seems that when you are in college, you have a lot more freedom. You have to study a lot more, but at least you get to do what you want. " Does this sound like the kind of influence you ' d like to have on a young, impressionable mind? Finding a way to get involved is no more difficult than calling your local school and asking how you can help.

Berkeley has a catchy slogan which is excellence though diversity. Yet is diversity the quality of being diverse or differenf True, the University does have a diverse population that represents all ethnic and racial groups. But what does diversity mean in an academic setting What are the students and the faculty here doing to support diversity and extract its positives so that all students may benefit from a multicultural environment? For example, African-Americans sometimes have difficulty asking questions in class. Yet questions are a fundamental part of education, since they imply learning. Socrates taught his students by engaging them In a dialogue. He encouraged them to be Inquisitive. This is known as the Socratic method. The modern education system has built on this method. We all attend discussion sections and lab meetings that are patterned after this method. And how often have we heard a professor expound on the virtues of asking questions in lecture? But if we are not called on In class, what are the implications for our eduction ' ' And why are we hesitant to speak out? It ' s not out of shyness for many of us are outgoing or at least try to be. It is not because we are inarticulate because storytelling and discourse is a part of our culture that reaches far back to the ancient griots of Africa. When I walk into a classroom, I am often one of few African-Americans In the course. A situation that many of us find ourselves In. This is Intimidating to begin with. But what affect does this have on learning? The University prides Itself on diversity However, do the students and faculty value our question? Are our opinions respected ' ' It ' s easy to contend with overt racism When the African Students Association ' s office was trashed we took action When the police used unnecessary force on people at the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity party, speaking they demanded a hearing. And when students could no longer tolerate Professor Vincent Sarltch ' s racist statements that were cloaked as scholarly truths,they protested, and held a debate. Yet how do we deal with the subtle racism? Like being treated as a homogeneous group know as the " Black community, " when there are differences among us. And whenever race is discussed In a class, we are expected to be experts on the subject. Furthermore, how do we combat the veiled Intolerance? As African-Americans we are forced to continually justify our presence at Berkeley. Some good came out of the protest against Sarich. It forced the racist attitudes that he and others shared out of the classroom and into the open. But we need to continue those efforts for change. There should be an increased awareness of the positive aspects of African-American cultures as well as other racial minority groups on campus. One possible solution to the racial problems we face at Berkeley is an American Cultures requirement. All of us could take courses fom the various ethnic studeies departments such as Afro-American, Chicano, Asian, or Latin American studies. By doing this we will gain a better understanding of one another. At the very least we would engage in a dialogue with someone from another background and be forced to confront our own prejudieces.

Who didn ' t want 365 days of beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures? Who didn ' t want to sunbathe on the west side of Wheeler, the steps on Sproul Hall, or any patch of grass on or off campus? But, no rain during the supposed " wettest " months of the year? This was getting ridiculous. Granted, get- ting drenched and walking around in wet jeans for four hours is not the most pleasant experience, but at least we had the experience. At least we had RAIN . . . While the world concentrated on the Persian Gulf War, Ca- lifornia, and more specifically, the Bay Area, was also pre- occupied with a crisis of its own — the drought. 1991 marked the fifth year of California ' s most devastating drought. 1 977 was the last time that Californians faced a similar water crisis. Between October and February, a cumulative five inches of rain felt, compared to an average of 28 inches for the same time period. With the state ' s rainfall and snowfall level 75 percent below normal, people and the environment of California were dramatically affected by the drought, and the repercussions were felt statewide. Due to the lack of rain during the past four years, and more importantly, the past winter, most of the state ' s resevoirs had Five Years of Thirst less than one-third of their normal levels of water; at the very best, some were near half-full. As a result, many California residents faced extensive water rationing plans. For the first time since the 1977 drought, Los Angeles implemented a ten percent cutback plan. Santa Barbara cut water usage by 45 percent. Some of the most drastic rationing came in the Bay Area. Residents in the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) faced a mandatory 25 percent cut, while Marin County residents faced a 50 percent cut, which limited users to 50 gallons of water per day — not much when you consider that flushing a toilet uses between seven and nine gallons of water. Not only did human beings suffer, but the California environment suffered as well. The lack of water weakened thousands of trees, and according to one statistic, enough trees died over the past two years to build one million large three-bedroom houses. The drought also devasted the salmon and striped bass populations. While storms in March showered California with twice the amount of rain and snow as is normal for the month, the resultant precipitation did little to ease the effects of the drought. In fact, it would have taken 20 similar storms to solve the state ' s five-year-old water crisis. The rain brought the year ' s rainfall levels closer to normal, but did little to fill the reservoirs: it was no more than a " drop in the bucket. " Voicing the sentiments of residents and water officials, Ida McClendon, an EBMUD Public Information Representative, stated, " We ' re starting so far behind that it ' s hard to catch up. " Rather than waiting for a massive downpour, California resorted to more realistic solutions to the water shortage. Many counties, such as EBMUD, started extensive conservation programs, which included distributing conservation kits and advertising conservation information. San Francisco purchased water from Placer and Stanlislaus counties. Others, including Santa Barbara and Marin, researched the construction of desalination or recyling plants, but only as a last resort since both were extremely expensive processes. With the rain season ending with no substantial rain, it seemed that the drought would continue. Conservation seems to be the only practical solution to the problem. That and maybe some rain dancing . . .

A photo of this scene was run as an advertisement by the Foundation for Biomedical Research, and the large bold caption read: " Thanks to animal research, they ' ll be able to protest 20.8 years longer. IVIost of us probably are not aware just how much animal research has affected our lives. Our ideas about laboratory animals seem to come from animal activists, who inundate the media with their accounts of intentionally cruel mistreatement of animals to stir up public outrage. Despite radical changes in research facilities, the scientists conducting the experiments have yet to make their voices heard about the positive improvements. In any case, research will continue and the public has a right to know what exactly are the benefits. Almost every major medical breakthrough in this century has its roots in animal experimentation. Thanks to animal research, humans now have vaccines for a wide range of diseases that once proved to be crippling or fatal: polio, small pox, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough, among others. For those illnesses that cannot be prevented with vaccines, animal experimentation has provided doctors with new avenues of medical treatment. Eighty percent of once fatal congenital heart defects are now curable. Surgical procedures that once would have been thought of as impossible as man walking on the moon are becoming increasingly common, t any thousands of Americans have had skin grafts, organ transplants and reattached severed limbs. Even medication that everyone I takes for granted — aspirin, antibiotics, sedatives — all were tested for safety and efficacy in animal experiments. | The benefits of animal research to humans are countles s and priceless. Not only have humans benefited from animal experimentation, animals have also. Diseases like anthrax and speaking cholera that used to kill herds of farm animals are now preventable with vaccines. For those of us owning pets, we can be gratlul for vaccines against rabies, distemper, parvo, inflectious hepatitus and lyme disease. We can also appreciate the advances made in medical treatments against deadly killers like cancer Chemotherapy was developed using animal subjects; it can now be used to help our pets. For endangered species, reproductive technologies such as embryo transplantation are now proving to be helpful in raising the numbers of these rare animals. Both domestic and wild animals are now able to lead healthier and longer lives due to animal research. The next time you encounter animal activists condemning the research going on in the laboratories at U.C. Berkeley, think twice as to how you have benefitted. Remember — thanks to animal experimentation, you ' ll now have 20.8 years more to ponder. ■ Carol Norris Founder, Cal Pre-Veterinary Society U.C.

Though I ' ve never considered myself a flag waver, I have always believed that America Is truly a land of freedom and democracy All my life I ' ve been proud that no matter who was in the White House or however much violence and poverty there was in the streets, the purity and sanctity of the Constitution of the United States would prevail. We are the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. I ' ve always thought this was inviolable. Until now. I am not proud of what my country is doing. I do not support George Bush ' s New World Order. This has ceased to be the America I knew and loved. My tax dollars and my fellow citizens are being used in an all out attack on another nation for incredibly dubious reasons. What happened to the America that solved conflicts though diplomacy and negotiations? What happened to the America that used miitary force only to defend our homelands? I feel that we have strayed greviously from the founding principles of this country. This is why I protest. Freedom of speech is at the core of the American soul, and it is only through this and the freedom of assembly that we can hopefully put America back on track. Protesting, and my Constitutinal right to do so, is the only thing that makes me speaking feel like a real American right now. President Bush acts lil e he has a mandate from Congress and the people, but in reality the nation was split 50 50 on the use of force Hundreds and thousands of people nationwide are participating in vigils, rallies, and marches to tell our elected leaders that we do not agree with their idea of America. We are not the world police. We are a member of the world community, and we should cooperate and talk with other nations, not bully and beat them into submission to our economic and political desires My vision of America may sound idealistic, but Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were idealists too. They yearned for a place where they would be at liberty to say, do, and think what their hearts and minds believed even if it was radically different form their countrymen.

President Bush told Saudi Arabia ' s leader King Fahd that he was willing to send American troops into Saudia Arabia to help protect it in the event of an Iraqi invasion. After some hesitation, King Fahd agreed. In what became known as Operation Desert Shield, President Bush ordered 125,000 troops to Saudia Arabia. A hostage situation developed when Saddam stopped releasing foreigners trapped in Kuwait, and stories began to emerge that he was placing foreigners at key military sites to dissuade American bombing. On the homefront, people opposed to an American mUtary presence in the Middle East began protesting. All across the United States, demonstrations broke out urging Bush to avoid another Vietnam. As the American build-up continued, a stalemate began. Iraqi forces in Kuwait began to dig-in and set up defensive fortifications. A war of words between Saddam Hussein and George Bush developed. Bush began forming an alliance of nations opposed to Saddam. He managed to convince the United Nations to officially condemn Iraq ' s actions and to impose economic sanctions on Iraq. In addition, January 15th was set up as a deadline for Iraq to pull out of Kuwait, and if Iraq failed to heed the deadline, all nations were permitted to use force to liberate Kuwait. As the deadline loomed closer. Bush agreed to send Secretary of State James Baker to Baghdad, and he invited Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz to Washington. In response, Sadd am freed all foreign hostages trapped in Iraq. However, neither of these meetings achieved any further results. With about a week left before the January 15th deadline. Congress approved the use of force against Iraq. Last minute attempts at diplomacy by France ' s President Mitterand and by the head of the United Nations also met with failure. At 4:27 on January 17th, U.S. and Allied airplanes began attacking Iraqi positions. Operation Desert Storm had begun. For the next few days, the television stations broadcast nothing but coverage of the war. Initial January IS, 1991 -UN deadline for Iraqi withdrawal ISSUES .

In the first twenty-four hours, the majority of key military sights were attacked and destroyed. However, the euphoria died down after the first losses. Regular television programing con- tinued as the bombing became routine, however American losses were still amazingly Lght. There was little Iraqi response at the ouset of the war, however, this changed when Iraq began launching Scud missies into Israel. For several days, there was a fear that Israel would attack Iraq in re- taUcrtion, which might have caused the Arab Na- tions to join with Iraq. However, the Israelis showed great restraint and did not respond to the missle attacks. After several weeks of non-stop bombing, the war heated up. Several divisions of Iraqi armored divisions attacked forces in Saudi Arabia, man- aging to capture the border town of Kaf jee.

Despite the pun- ishment they were taking, Iraqi forces still refused to leave Kuwait, a ground war became inevitable. On Febuary 23, American and Allied forces en- tered Kuwait. The main thrusts were into Southern Iraq which prevented Iraqi forces from retreating. A diversionary thrust was made into Southern Ku- wait. Iraqi forces were completely overrun. The only thing that slowed the Allied forces down was the thousands of Iraqi soldiers who were trying to surrender. Iraqi forces trying to flee were ruthlessly decimated by air and land forces. Kuwait was liberated within 100 hours with less than 20 U.S. soldiers lost. As a final gesture of respect, the U.S. allowed Kuwaiti forces to lead the way into Kuwait City. The war was over! On the Eve of War Draft Counseling Sought In Sharp contrast to the jubilant Condom Carnival going on on the steps of Sproul hall, a goup of protestors in pseudo-military garb protests the draft at Sather Gate Handing out mock draft cards, chanting through a megaphone, and hassling passing students to ■give up their lives for oil, " the group is small but vocal Their mock- draft spurs anger in some bystanders, but for many it drives home the very real fears of war Eddie, 21, counselor at the Berkeley Draft and Registration Coun- seling Center spoke only 48 hours before the ground war began, " Our ]0b IS to let people know how the draft works, what their options are, that they have options We help people work through their fears " Although a formal draft has not existed since Vietnam, the United States never dismantled its Selective Service System " II the ground war lasts over si x months, there will definitely be a draft, " Eddie said. " There are over a million reservists right now that would go before a draft was called, but most reserves are not fit for combat — they were never trained The infantrymen in Saudi Arabia are going to start coming home in body bags, and you ve got to have someone to replace them Politicians say the war won ' t last that long, but that ' s what they said about Vietnam, too Who can say ' ' " In a draft, the SSS would assign lottery numbers to each day of the year for each age group of men from age 18 through 25 The age 20 group, for example, consists of all men who are or will turn 20 in the calendar year the draft was called; if the draft starts in 1991, the group would encompass all men born in 1971 Essentially, the lottery Is a shuffling of the days of the year with each day assigned a randon number. The SSS would then send notices to men born on day number 1, starting with the age 20 selection group, expecting 2 3 of Its draftees to receive postponements, deferments, or exemptions. One major difference in this war is that the SSS no longer grants student deferments Deferments were banned at the end of Vietnam because many people thought they were unfair, discriminating against the poor and minonties who could not afford to go to college. All this can be very frightening to young men m the first age selection groups " When you ' re a teenager you feel invincible, " Eddie said " Then all of a sudden you have these anxieties and respon- siblities thrust upon you " Nearly 1000 students turned out at a draft counseling session February 12, in Zellerbach Hall to express their concerns and get answers The counselors at the Berkeley Center are committed to finding alternatives to war. " Anything can be negotiated — war isn ' t nec- essary We ' re all humans You can always talk, " Eddie said However, despite the dangers, many students still support the war. At a draft counseling session in the Unit III dorms, Mike, in the 20-year- old age group, was angered by the Draft Center ' s stance that as many people as possible should try for deferments " I asked them a question about wheri I go, not if, and they didnt know the answer. I ' m perfectly willing to sen e my country in any way I ' m asked, " he said. Despite these varying viewpoints, the fear of a draft still affected many people regardless of their particular opinion of the gulf war And for some the Berkeley Draft Center did provide answers which put them at ease by Jenl Temstrom ISSUES .

We could ha Free the Animals Every year here on the Berkeley campus over 80,000 animals are used by researchers in the name of science. Millions of dollars are spent in this cruel and useless area Berkeley Students for Animal Liberation stands opposed to this institution for three chief reasons. These three reasons are the arguments of morality, scientific need, and allocation. Our group stands on the belief that human beings have no right to inflict torture on animals. As conscious life, animals have certain rights that society cannot deny. One of these rights is to be free from the cruelty of medical experimentation Vivisection as practised today Is a cruel and horrid institution Despite claims to the contrary, great sufferring does occur. The animals are kept in terrible conditions, they are subjected to immensely painful experiments, and lead horrid lives. Even is such experiements did any good, our group would still oppose them We believe that the institution of vivisection itself is morally wrong The second reason we oppose vivsection is that it is bad science. Take Steven Breedlove ' s experiments with rats Breedlove injects testosterone into female rats to see whether they will develop penile nerves similar to those in male rats. Or Richard Van Sluyters who sutures shut the eyes of kittens and then reopens them and experiements on their vision Both of these experiments have no practical application, yet year after year these researchers receive large grants for these experiments. Animal research is obsolete. Already there are more effective alternatives that are much better means of developing medicine, such as cell cultures, protozoan studies, and organ cultures to name a few Finally, we believe that animal research is a complete waste of money that could better serve human health if invested in prevention and medical services for the poor Each year millions of dollars go into the research coffers. s Pii.a 9 while our country still lacks a decent health care system. This wasted money would be much more effective if placed in health care or social services Also education about how to prevent diseases is the best way to improve human health. Yet rather than support such campaigns, medical grant money goes into animal research with no use for the general public We believe that this is ludicrous. Our group has taken several actions to protest animal research on campus. Over 500 people attended a demonstration on April 24 protesting the institution of vivisection. In the Fall semester, an overnight vigil was held in which students placed themselves in research equipment to Illustrate the plight of animals on campus. Also our group IS dedicated to educating the public about the realities of vivisection and its useless position in a civilized society. BSAL also stands against the institution of factory farming Farm animals such as cows, chickens, and pigs are kept in horrible conditions. We oppose this treatment and wish to see it ended We always espouse vegetarianism for moral, environmental, and health reasons. If you are unaware of these issues. Diet for a New America by John Robbins clearly delineates the reasons for trying a vegetanan or vegan (no eggs or dairy) diet If you would like to find out more, get in touch with us and come to our meetings. We would love to have help in our struggle to end human injustice to animals. ■ Berkeley Students tor Animal Liberation iis article IS one m a series o( many which appears under the heading Speaking Out ' The purpose o( the " Speaking Out column i ncludesludentopinions. which are a fundamental part of Cal. in the S ue A Go d We the Sfue S Gofd stall have neither altered nm ' ■ i ' ' ■ article submitted These articles are opinions.

The poor of this nation suffer from the drug war in indirect manners as well While politicians blame the debt of this nation as grounds for cutting social sen ices, prison building and law enforcement spending escalate A major percentage of current inmates in the state of California, and other parts of this nation as well, serve time for drug charges alone, while most of the others serve time for drug war related sentences. As our government focuses all of its cures for domestic problems on law enforcement, funding for health services and education suffer. Plenty of funds for education and health services exist in the law enf orcement budget Furthermore, sixty one percent of our tax dollars goes to the military Now, our government begins to use military forces to cure " the plague of mind-altenng substances within this country, as well as outside of national borders I fool myself to believe that the drug war shows the governments concern for my health Through subsidies of the meat and dairy industry, subsidies of the alcohol industry, and subsidies of the tobacco industry, the government encourages the destruction of my environmental health as well as my physical health No, I do not believe drug use m the work place will escalate upon legalization Currently, many corporations experiment with programs to cure alcohol and tobacco addiction with their employees When an employee admits to having a drug problem with legal substances, his her employer may grant him her leave so as to cure the problem if that same employee came out of the closet with an addiction to an illegal substance, s he would most likely lose the job Beyond the economic benefits acquired from less drug war spending, the United States has the greatest potential of reviving the economy within Its own borders The primary agricultural crop of the United States up until the twentieth century was hemp, better know as marijuana, or the devil ' s weed Hemp served as the primary source of clothing, paper, rope, canvas (actually canvas is the Dutch version of cannabis), paint -1 lii ' 9 and commn therapeutic uses Hemp even has the potential as an annually renewable resource for fuel, replacing our dependence on foreign countries Furthermore, hemp exudes no sulfur and consumes all carbon dioxide, wiping out acid ram and controlling the greenhouse effect Reinstated as the major souce of paper and minor building materials, hemp could slow down the eradication of our forests Furthermore, paper made from hemp lasts longer than paper mad e from forest, and an acre of hemp puts out more paper than an acre of forest Currently marijuana offers many therapeutic answers lor patients with multiple sclerosis, asthma, glaucoma, and it cures nausea symptoms of chemotherapy Unfortuantely, patients have limited access to marijuana and need to resort to more harmful, less effective legal drugs I could not understand why the nation s altitude towards hemp marijuana changed drastically since it was a staple crop less than a century ago I learned that Rockefeller and Dupont spearheaded the campaign against hemp, capitalizing on their patents on synthetic fibers and dissuading Henry Ford from running his cars on methanol produced from hemp Furthermore, William Randolph Hearst supplied the medium of slander on hemp in the San Francisco Chronicle Hearst himself had his own economic endeavor in criminalizing hemp, owning acres of forest for paper production After the relegalization of marijuana, the health of the people will not go down No accounts exist of deaths due to marijuana overdose, or addiction, or children born with deformites due to mothers ingesting marijuana during pregnancy I do not encourage the use of marijuana for the general health of people without glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, asthma, or symptoms of chemotherapy I simple try to accentuate the truth behind the lies put out by the government Some say that we would live in a fascist state if not for our right to bear arms Education funding goes down Health services funding goes down Pnson building escalates Law enforcement spending escalates Censorship escalates Personally.

Sadly, today this is quite removed from reality. Apathy from the moral weight of producing weapons that would be used to slaughter millions of innocent people, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has had a grim history of misinformation, deceit, and a reprehensible lack of concern for public safety Prior to 1963. individuals at the labs resorted to hysteria to dissuade President Kennedy from concluding a Comprehensive Test Ban with Soviet Union In 1988 Edward Teller of LLNL and his protege Lowell Wood sold President Reagan a false bill of goods by informing him that it was possible to build a fool-proof shield aga inst incoming nuclear missiles: Star Wars. Several reputable organizations, including the American Physical Society have concluded that the missile defense system, as proposed, is entirely unworkable Roy Woodruff, a well respected top-level manager at LLNL, was demoted with the help of UC President Gardner for making public the fact that he was not allowed to inform President Reagan that Mr. Teller had grossly exaggerated to President Reagan the current state of the Star Wars project , in partiuclar the X-ray laser weapon. Lastly, one need only point to the fact that LLNL is on the EPS s superfund cleanup list as one of the country ' s most contaminated sites to speak of the breach of the public trust n g Labwatch members realize that the world is not an ideal fantasyland. We boast of students from very diverse academic backgrounds including history, law, biology, nuclear engineering and physics What unites and incites us, however , is the continual lack of responsiveness by the UC Regents Over the past few years, the students from all thirteen UC campuses have voted to sever the ties to the national labs. This has coincided with a vote by the faculty of all thirteen campuses to sever ties UC President Gardner put together a committee to study the UClab relationship The conclusion, in 1990, of this Jenderson Committee, was that the Univeristy ' s management was irresponsible, and that the University should phase out of the management position The continuing insistence of the Regents to ignore all of these demands gives Labwatch stimulus to continue struggling for respnsible and democratic actions on the part of the University Labwatch feels that, based on recent positive developments in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union and recent negative trends in the environment, the time is ripe for the weapons labs to be at the forefront of the peacetime conversion We recongize the extraordinary talent present at the labs and realize that these people can be invaluable in the country ' s efforts to protect and clean up the environment, and in developing alternative energy sources which are safe, renewable, and non-polluting These national labs should set an example for all civic minded students and community members to follow In any event, we take solace in the fact that our members think hard about the ethical considerations of the University s actions, something the University refuses to do Labwatch works with other Bay Area groups in an effort to conclude a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, to clean up the labs, and to work towards existing in a non-nuclear world Besides our regular Thursday meetings, we occasionally hold rallies and organize lectures, debates, and teach-ins This article is one m a seties ot many which appears undei the heading Speaking Out The purpose o( Ihe Speaking Out column is to include student opinions, which are a fundamental part ol Cal in the B ' ue « Go d We the Slue 4 Gold statt have neither altered nor excluded any article submilled These articles are opinions.
