In the beginning. . . The Ohlone Indian tribe lived for thousands of years in the Straw berry Canyon area of the Berkeley f J: v. hills and on the land which is now the campus. By the 1849 Gold Rush, the Indian community had been displaced by cattle and dairy farms. In 1860, the Oakland-based College of California purchased the land from a farmer. In 1868, the trustees of the College of California gathered at the corner of Hearst Avenue and Gayley Road. This oldest campus landmark is Founder ' s Rock. There, the trustees dedicated the surrounding property as the site of the new campus — the University of California. The trustees became an independent corporation known as the Regents of the University of California. The Regents were empowered to set University policies such as admissions, affirmative action and student fees. The Regents contracted architect David Farquharson to design a master plan for the University campus. Farquharson proposed six buildings, one each for studies in Agriculture, Mechanic Arts, Civil Engineering, Mines, and Letters, built around a central library building, California Hall. Only five were actually constructed. Only South Hall, a Victorian built in 1873, stands today. Sather Tower, better known as the Campanile, is Berkeley ' s ubiquitous building and symbol. Campus architect John Galen Howard completed the " bell tower " in 1914. Tiffany and Company designed the University Seal in 1910. " Let there be light " is a translation of the University ' s Latin motto, " Fiat Lux. " And thus, the University began its journey into the annals of intellectual history.

COLLEGE LIFE 9 A phrase commonly heard on campus is " Excellence through Diver- sity. " and for good reason. The Berkeley community surrounds its citizens with different ethnicities, reli- gions, nationalities, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, ages and physical abilities. Berkeley takes tremendous pride in the rich ethnic and cultural diversity of the student body. In fact, the Freshman Class of 1992 is just cosmo- politan enough to reflect the diversity of the State ' s population. The diverse campus en- vironment offers many unique opportunities to learn about the Vk orld we share. However, under- standing our differences, especiallly those of race, gender, disability, and sex- ual orientation, is not al- ways easy. In fact, the pluralism of Berkeley is a concept many newcomers gaze upon with confusion and sometimes fear. However, racial educa- tion such as Project DARE (Diversity Awareness through Resources and 10 CAMPUS DIVERSITY Education) and the Amer- ican Cultures Requirement assist students, staff, and faculty to work effectively wittiin a complex, multicul- tural University environ- ment. The Center for Ra- cial Education and many DE-Cal (Democratic Edu- cation at Cal) courses ad- dress volatile societal is- sues such as racism and homophobia in a safe, non- threatening, structured en- vironment. In essence, no one will admit that total racial har- mony exists on the Berkeley campus. But most emphat- ically laud the trend to- wards a more diversified faculty and student body. CAMPUS DIVERSITY 1 1 12 LIFE SUPPORT Q u I E T LIFE SUPPORT 13 DEVIL WINDS s unday October 20, 1991 came on mean from the start. Fiery tiot Santa Ana style " devil winds " whipped down from the northeast at 50 mph. The winds emptied their heated bluster upon the ridge of hills that rises augustly before the Pacific to gourd the edge of the Eostbay. Here, with o breath-taking view of the bay sprawled below, generations of families had crafted mansions and cottages amid on oasis of fragrant eucalyptus trees and gurgling creeks. The crime and traffic of the urban grit were just minutes below, but seemed on entire ocean away in the serene splendor of quiet, monied neighborhoods in the Berkeley Hills. The conflagration began at 10:47 a.m. as the tiniest of sparks. Just off Buckingham Boulevard, below the Hiller Highlands, an ember from the previous day ' s brush fire found new life at the hot stroke of the devil wind. A small flicker found plentiful fuel in bushes and scrub turned to brittle wicks by five years of drought and a record root-killing freeze. Within 15 minutes, 100 acres had become a voracious wall 14 BERKELEY HILLS FIRE LI. o —I o v;;ft Disappearing Landscape The fire destroyed more than homes and cars but also personal memorabilia, art collections, and books. Writer and Berkeley professor Maxine Hong Kingston fled her home, leaving a two-thirds completed novel to burn. Harold Wilensky, emeritus professor of political science, lost half a manuscript based on two decades of research. And computer scientist Richard Newton lost two years of potentially ground-breaking research in the complex field of computer-aided electronic design. of hellfire rampaging in all directions. By then, the initial spiral of smoke had become a thick gray- black blanket billow- ing from the hills to San Francisco. The smoke turned the day into a deathly twilight and the sun to blood red. Ashes and leaves start- ed to rain down as far as Candlestick Park 15 miles away. Once the conflagra- tion raged to a full head, it engulfed en- tire blocks at five min- utes a gulp. Some de- fied heat-blasted death and stayed to hose down their home, dig firebreaks — do anything they could to beat back the raging monster before them. Fraternity members evacuated their hous- es and immediately proceeded to the front-line to offer vol- unteer assistance. Others hung in until the sheet of flame got so close it seared the skin from their arms and faces and they were forced to drop hoses and ladders and flee. By mid- afternoon, more than 1,000 firefighters from all over California were attacking the flames with everything from engines and hand held hoses to hel- icopters. It was the biggest wildland fire in Califor- nia history, and one of the biggest fires ever. At least $15 billion in damage across a two mile swath. At least 25 dead. Among the dead were Cal alumni ' 61 M.A. Gail Allison Baxter ' 58, ' 86; Maybelle Nissen Bios ' 26,; Philip Loggins ' 71 Ph.D. ' 74; and 18- year-old sophomore S e g a I I Livnah, a p r e - m e d student and Alumni Scholar. By the Chan- ce I I o r ' s count, 70 faculty and 62 staffers lost houses, and some 360 students were displaced. Five thousand displaced from their homes. Some 3,390 houses and apartments de- stroyed. By the following morning, the worst of the fire was over. Hun- dreds of people be- gan to trickle back up the smoking hillsides to find if anything was left of their life ' s treasures, and the grisly search for bodies began. Five neighborhoods — Hiller Highlands, Broadway Terrace, Montclair, Claremont and Upper Rockridge - were torched into an eery moonscape. Gone were the turn-of- the-century architec- tural masterpieces crafted by Julia Mor- gan, and maverick Bernard Maybeck. In their place was a sur- real landscape of white ash, melted glass, smoldering tree stumps and telephone wires dangling like burned spaghetti from blackened poles. The skeleton of more than 2,000 cars sat burned to the hub. All over the hills, rows of homes were reduced to ashy concrete 16 BERKELEY HILLS FIRE punctuated by a stark forest of chimneys. Broken water pipes hissed, and a dangling gutter bumped limply against a blasted stuc- co wall. A chain saw rasped. The stone Bud- dha on someone ' s doorstep smiled. A jade-colored urn looked untouched. The wheels of a child ' s wagon had melted Into black puddles, and what had been the hubcaps of a Por- sche were frozen streams of sliver metal. Street lamps lay shat- tered on the street where they crashed when the poles hold- ing them were eaten through by fire. Wires were strewn every- where. As the sun came up, where a wooded neighbor- hood had been the moming before, a for- est of chimneys stood In a gray blue haze. The chimneys went on for more than a mile, from Highway 24 on the North end to Florence Avenue on the South. With the skyscrapers of San Francisco In the dis- tance, they faded West toward the Claremont Country Club and a cemetery, and East down steep slopes to Highway 13. The University ' s out- pouring of help was heartfelt and Impres- sive. The ASUC building welcomed refugees and later became a Red Cross disaster re- lief center. On Hallow- een. Fraternity Row opened Its doors to children who had been burned out of their homes. The Ath- letic Department, which had been paid $160,000 by ABC for televising the Novem- ber 2 Cal-USC game, donated $100,000 to the Chancellor ' s Emer- gency Relief Fund. Within days, Cal had arranged to lease Its Presentation High buildings to the Bent- ley School, the only East Bay school to burn. At the Alumni House, fire victims were almost outnum- bered by UC staffers offering help with housing, transporta- tion and financial aid. The most Ironic as- pect of the East Bay ifire Is that people knew that It was com- ing. In an Interview In 1973, forestry professor Harold BIswell had wamed of a " count- down to disaster " In the Berkeley-Oakland Hills. Cedar shake roofs, he said, " are about the easiest type to catch fire. " He also feared that a winter freeze such as the one In December 1990 that killed many eucalytus trees would be fol- lowed by an autumn fire feeding on the dead wood. As BIswell put It, " It could be the most disastrous wildfire that has every struck California. " The University ar- ranged a symposium In Zellerbach Auditorium to share the Universi- ty ' s expertise with the community. Named " Wind and Fire. " it un- derscored how correct Blswell ' s prediction had been. Mechanical engi- neering professor Pat- rick J Pagnl, an expert in fire engineering, drew on the past in dis- cussing the hot Santa Ana-like weather that sparked and fanned the East Bay fire. On the Zellerbach screen, Pagnl projected the results of a 1973 anal- ysis by John Monteverdi, then the official campus weath- er observer. Monteverdi had found that in an average year. Berkeley has alDOut four days of this type of weather. Three of those days fall In October, and two of the three fall In the last half of the month. So the October 20 fire had come along right on schedule. Perhaps the most ex- traordinary memory to take from the devas- tation of this fire Is the sheer will of the firefighters and the un- sung heroes who vol- unteered to beat back the fire. Exhausted firefighters and emer- gency workers from across California la- bored tirelessly without sleep, fueled only by coffee. College stu- dents, carpenters and neighbors lifted shov- els and fire hoses to save expensive homes headed for certain de- struction without their efforts. Two Cal students, Michael Ferry and Pete Dehn, furiously shov- eled dirt onto the flames threatening the Ixickyard of a house owned by someone they never met. Their effort saved the resi- dence near Grizzly Peak Boulevard from the fire. Others direct- ed traffic, delivered meals and offered their couches and spare bedrooms to the homeless families and to the thousands who had to evacuate. While many ques- tioned how a small grass fire had turned Into a killer Inferno, none doubted that the Berkeley community would be galvanized Into an outpouring of magnanimity. — by Andy Dong BERKELEY HILLS FIRE 17 arte a la fresco p h o t o s b y c h i a c h i e h h u 20 GRAFFITI GRAFRTI 21 22 BERKELEY LIFE BERKELEY LIFE 23 OcU oi S UUjUt What ' s In a Degree? by Debbie Yuan What happens after Berkeley arms one with a hard- earned degree? Does the golden seal on the diploma become the golden key that opens all doors to fame and fortune? For some of us, the answer is an emphatic " Yes! " And I ' m not speaking just for engineering majors. Seriously, getting out of Berkeley through its bu- reaucracy and academic toil is a successful feat in itself. However, in terms of material wealth that may ensue, here the success story branches in two — between those who land great first jobs at $30K per year and those who just do not quite make it that far or high. Although Berkeley releases a pool of about 5,682 quality people into the mainstream society each year. THE BERKELEY DEGREE 25 " TH JAM O ( this figure does not show and tell about " the day after. " Are new Berkeley graduates mov- ing up the success ladders of America or are they merely moving on with the flow? What ' s the objective behind fulfilling Berkeley ' s demanding requirements? Most of us have our eyes on the green. In this culture of consumption, our far-reaching aspiration to matriculate into college and then earn big bucks may have been planned as early as five years of age. As one of the world ' s most distinguished public institutions, Berkeley of- ten gives more and expcts more from its stu- dents in return. As a result, their efforts are often reflected in the employment sector, where 51% of recent graduates rate getting a Berkeley degree as being " very important " to how their applications were evaluated, ac- cording to a survey conducted by the Office of Student Research. Especially in the technical field whose spec- ificity promises easier job placements, 63% of engineering baccalaureates enjoyed a median salary of $31,600 for instance. Even though the effects of the ongoing recession have also taken its toll on science and engineering ma- jors leading to slower job offers, " There is a definite advantage as a graduate from Berke- ley, " says Kathleen Stanton, technical career advisor at the Career Planning and Placement Center. According to Stanton, despite the fewer on-campus recruiters, companies such as Hewlett Packard, who did not recruit last year, are saving the limited positions they do have to recruit at schools like Berkeley and Stanford this year. True enough, power does dwell in a Berke- ley degree. Yet is there more that an im- pressive salary does not tell, and do all its recipients live in the " fat of the land " there- after? For starters, the generous sum is de- rived before taxes. " Especially if you are sin- gle and have no children. Uncle Sam does not let you get away with much — literally, " reflects Amelia Yuan, an ' 89 graduate in pe- troleum engineering who has been working for Shell Oil upon graduation. " Even though I ' m in the highest-paid engineering profes- sion, I take home less than two-thirds of my $40,000 salary but see even less of that; with hefty house payments and education loans to repay, my bank account still looks pitifuU, about the same as it did when I was a student at Cal. " Unlike their technical counterpart, liberal arts majors earn a starting median salary of $20,700 in the humanities. Whereas 80% of science and engineering majors receive job offers immediately, Stanton acknowledges the general trend that liberal arts majors usu- ally do not get jobs right away or would have to switch several jobs before finding one they like. Thus, without the specific training given under technical studies, grads in the aries liberies, the Latin origin meaning " work be- fitting a free man, " often have to creatively mold their skills acquired from a broad un- dergraduate education to accommodate a par- ticular job. (Peterson ' s Liberal Arts lobs, 1989) As the optimistic saying goes, " You can do anything with a liberal arts major. " If a. O O 5 26 THE BERKELEY DEGREE This blessing may also turn into a curse simply because you can also end up without a job. However, this is not to say that every grad- uate from the College of Letters and Science gets the worst end of the bargain or that everyone with a technical background makes his first million by tne age of 30. Ka- ren Swanson, a ' 90 graduate who now works as a research assistant for the State Department of Public Health Services, responds posi- tively to her Sociology major. " My studies in health issues have been useful in my job, " she confirms. One concept that needs clari- fication is " money isn ' t every- thing, " an often preached but hard to follow adage. It certainly is not what all Berkeley graduates place on the top of their list as the driving motivation behind earning a Berkeley degree. In fact, a survey of 1,216 ' 87- ' 88 graduates re- vealed that only 47% wrote " being financially well-off " as the most important factor. Perhaps one thing may never change about obtaining a degree from Berkeley — the experience, knowledge and wealth which we acquired from the University ' s many academic and social pro- grams. They will always remain vdth us. . .along with the 30,000 degress that " go unclaimed. " ) N V THE BERKELEY DEGREE 27 i f - • t ■yy GAME I ' ell, it was good news and bad news. Let ' s begin with the good news with a recap of the 1991-92 football season. In the opening game, the Bears clearly out-gunned a smaller and less athletic University of the Pacific team. The Bears brutalized UOP with a whopping 82-to- 24 victory at Memorial Stadium while breaking a num- ber of school records: most points scored since 1920; most PATs by a kicker (Doug Brien with 10); most first downs rushing (24); and Mike Pawiawski ' s six touch- down passes broke Craig Morton ' s mark that had stood for 29 years. And what was the result of the high- scoring affair? The canoneer on Tightwad Hill burned his fingers and the horn players in the Cal band were in desperate need of oxygen! The momentum carried into the Purdue game. The Bears again mauled the Boilermakers 42-to- 18.Pawlawski, Russel White, Treggs and company ran off- Page Design by MAISA ACHACOSO THE BIG GAME 29 K f» BIGGER GAMES by to start off tackle plays, screen plays, and short sideline passes to pound out critical yardage. Following the Purdue game, Cal was ranked 24th in the nation by the Associated Press. Despite a strong Arizona beginning, the Bears rallied back to win with a dramatic field-goal 23-to-21 Hundreds of students poured out of LaVal ' s, Kip ' s and Larry Blake ' s to celebrate the 3-0 Bears. Was this the start of Bear Fever? Cal ranked 20th in the nation after the Arizen game. The first half ended with a 14-14 tie, about as exciting as kissing your sister, right? But with 3:16 on f - ' y « " li A.lH l M « »?• ' • the clock in the fourth, " ' - White et. al. carried the ball to the UCLA 29. Coach Snyder sent Brien in to kick a 47-yard field goal- end the bears won the game 27-to-24. Now the Bears moved up to 13th in the AP poll. It was the highest national rank- ing for a Cal team since the 1975 team of Muncie, Roth and Walker. While the Bears won 45-to-7, sports ana- lysts cemented that the offense played rather inconsistently. The day belonged to Col ' s defense. william corley The defense combined aggressive blitzing with excellent pass defense. The Bears forced six fum- bles, sacked the Oregon QB five times, and in- tercepted three touchdowns. The 5-0 Bears began the week ranked number 7 in the nation. It was the first top-ten ranking by a Berkeley team since the 1968 squad, and the highest ranking since Pappy Waldort ' s team of 1952. Beer Fever swept the campus and Bay Area as the Bears prepared to play the also unbeaten Washington Huskies, the third-ranked team in the country. A capacity crowd of 74,500 showed up to watch Washington outlast the Bears 24-to-17. Even so, the Cal fans gave their team a standing ovation as they left the field. Cal stuck in out to win 41-te-20 against San Jose State in an uninspired game against a mo- tivated Spartans team. THE BIG GAME 31 Okay, then came USC. As Pawlawski put it, " Like some peop l ave aversion to dairy products, I have an aversion to USC. " Th strong emotion is felt by both Cal and Stanford players who hav been subjected to many numbing defeats at the hands of th arrogant Trojans. At the close of the fourth quarter, v ith C ahead by a hefty 52-to-14 lead, the chant of " We v ant more boomed across the stadium. What a glorious day! The Bears eked out a 27-to-14 vi in against a tough Oregon Beaver squad. Except for that, the game vj . about as exciting as the Spartan game. Cal defeated a young Arizona State Sun Devil squad 25-to-6, but the game surely was not a showcase fi the Bear offense. The bears failed to mount a sustained drive during most of the game, and nearly half ( the points were scored in four field goals. Hmmm. So Cal entered the Big Game with a flat offense. Stanford ' s team was surging; the Cardinal had won six games in a row and was now ranked 21st in the country. Bear Fever ran extremely high all around campus. This was, perhaps, Cal ' s best chance of taking back the Axe. Professors offered bonus points on midterms for every point that Cal beat Stanford. To make a long story short, the Cardinal played a superb game, Cal beat itself with a series of 11 costly penalties for 140 yards. The Bears lost 38-to-21. The 1991 Big Game belongs to Stanford. — Andy Dong 32 THE BIG GAME f " BERKELEYDESIGNS art literature nature BERKELEY DESIGNS 33 Arf at UC BERKELEY — ROUGH DRAFT The art classes classes of- fered at UCB are like any other classes a student en- rolls in. Yes, professors ac- tually take attendance. They actually assign proj- ects. And, believe it or not, students are actually grad- ed. At the same time, though, these art classes are unlike any other types of classes. Walls are meant to be stabbed with push- pins. Tables, chairs, and floors are splattered with paint. Models strip to the skin and bones, and stu- dents do not gawk at cer- tain, usually well-hidden body parts. Students loos- en up and " get comfort- able " with their artistic en- vironment. They throw on a loose shirts, tie back their hair, sip a Bianco Mocha and in some cases, " get down " to the funky tunes of Pochabel, Jimi Hendrix, Vivaldi, or other happening musicians. While it may appear very easy to teach or to learn art, it is actually difficult to do both. The instructors themselves are all profes- sional artists who are deal- ing with students of various skills and abilities. Some students have drawn ex- tensively, and other have recently picked up a pen- cil as a drawing instrument, not a note-taking one. " We ' re caught in a bind between teaching from a professional point of view but not demanding a pro- fessional result, " notes Jer- For teachers and students to overcome such dilemmas, the art department emphasizes a certain philosophy of instruction. It is not concerned with the final outcome of the product — whether to label a painting " good " or " bod " . Rather, instructors are concerned with progress, effort, sincerity, and self- development. " As Instructors, we try to teach students 34 BERKELEY DESIGNS to develop insight and an extension of themselves. We do not want to impose our views on them; we want them to respond to these views, " explains Mr. Ballaine. Aside from emphasizing progress as opposed to product, there are other positive points to the University ' s art program. It is close to the University Art Museum. The museum exposes Text by JULIE CHIN students to various works of art. In addition, student work is constantly displayed in Kroeber Hall and the Worth Ryder Gallery. Most people will always question the practicality and usefulness of art, but for others, there will always be the need for such a unique form of expression. As Ms. Sherwood States, " If you develop your visual thinking, you will lead an enriched rold Ballaine, who teache a figure drawing and pain ing class. For the studen ' themselves, the task equally demanding. Art not reduced to splashin point on a canvas. It about putting depth, fee ing, and oneself into th work. It is about visual capturing and expressin a particular thought, em tion, personality, an mood. life. You can see things in much different ways. You spend time looking at something in detail. " Along the same lines, Mr. Ballaine asserts, " There is a visual vocabulary Just as there is a spoken vocabulary. And you can communicate with either. With art, you have the potential of making a unique visual statement.

" My grandfa- ther in China was a great storytell- er, " Kingston re- calls. " Mother would tell me how Grandfather would pull out a chair in the open fields and tell stories to the villagers, sometimes for hours. " According to Kings- ton, her Grandfather loved to tell stories about orphans and describe death scenes, considering it most trium- phant if he were able to move the tough, old women in the audience to tears. " Very much like Dickens ' s style, " she adds. " I ' m hap- py to have inherited both the abilities and the sto- ries. " With generations of storytellers in her roots, Kingston continues the tradition in her first critically ac- claimed book Woman Warrior , the winner of the 1976 National Book Critics Circle Award for non-fiction. Also due her credit are China Men (1980), Hawaii One Summer (1987), and Tripmaster Monkey (1 987), her first fiction nov- el, a portrayal of Kingston as Wittman Ah Sing, a graduate from Cal in the mid-60 ' s.

For those of you who were unaware of this faa, here are some of the thin gs Berkeley takes so seriously that it ' s funny. . . ASUC Senate Elections Drinking Studying Letters of the Alphabet Trees and the Environment Political Correcmess Recycling Stanford Let ' s take the ASUC Senate for one thing. ASUC Senators have a very, very serious job which gives them control over a large amount of money which then sponsors a va- riety of school-related groups and organizations. Most people are aware of this. This year, at the elections, there were a variety of groups dueling for only a few po- sitions. Among these people run- ning for Senate was a one-person party against the inhumane treat- ment of vegetables, and another group of people claiming to be made up of alien invaders ulti- mately planning to take over the world. At least one aspea of the UC Berkeley system seems to have a healthy attitude — NOT! t j_j • r - If you think that we ' re serious about everything we ' re going to write about in the next few pages, then you ' re a joke tool Berkeley students have always taken drinking (milk?) very seriously. There are a number of reasons why drinking is such a popular activity, but the main theory goes like this: Are you tired, and worn out from hours and hours of studying, essay writing, and going to class? Why are you going through these years of university-level torture only to graduate so that you can get some low-income, go no-where job? Why do we spend our precious free time either attacking someone on a political, social, economic or moral issue or in the smokey dark depths of a scuzzy nightclub? Drink alcohol. The answers will all be there when you sober up. But if you continue to drink from a variety of alcohol-based substances, beer wine and spirits, your brain will slowly numb to the point that all those brain cells turn to mush. Since trivial things like " Where ' s the washroom? " will occupy your mind, your worries about the job market, the recession and unequal opportunity will seem trivial and meaningless. Remember the more you drink, the less you think. And beer before liquor, never been sicker. j }S » t v .- .T « T. : •X J STILL A JOKE Studying is something that Berkeley students find es- pecially serious and mind-blowingly important. This is due to the fact that most aspects of Berkeley life are always changing while homework remain s at a constant over a long period of time. Mathematicians have speculated on infinity for a really long time but their concepts can only begin to describe how long homework can nag at the back of your mind while it clogs up your desk drawer. The theory behind homework goes like this: a) Homework can neither be created or destroyed (not even by a dog); b) Homework can however shift in space from one area to the other (i.e. from a photocopy the professor gives out to an ugly royal blue binder); c) Homework can also change from one form to another. It will of course remain in the same form unless there is an opposing force that will change its form. Only two opposing forces have been discovered by researchers so far: procrastination and stu- pidity. Some speculate that by " doing " the homework you can change its form but that i s still under debate; d) Homework exudes a type of magnetic force that can repel or attract various substances — this magnetic force as a rule tends to repel the human mind. However, it is thought that homework attracts its own kind until there is so much homework that it forms a small colony in its choice of habitat, e.g. desk, closet, garbage, etc. These theories were developed by a student from a foreign university who got his Ph.D. because of his work. He did not get very far in his field because he no longer had any homework to scientifically observe. . .1 J .Z- i. ALL THE IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL AND POLITICAL ISSUES OF 1991-1992 Vf ARMING!!! Diana Tepper, Staff Writer - At a recent press conference, Berkeley sci- entists reveled their shocking discoveries that have the entire nation living in uncertainty and fear. Apparently, the seemingly harmless tree, found in most areas of the world, is indeed a hazard to the human metabolism. Few had known of the dangers involved, but many have suffered from constant contact with this menace. " We suspected that trees were a danger for years but had no proof, " organic biochemist Xavier Iraw admited. " When we finally pinpointed the problem, however, we went straight to the public. " The problem that had been discovered lies in the process called pho- tosynthesis. Trees nourish themselves with sun, water and carbon dioxide. This in itself is harmless. Yet, it was realized that the trees then emit a noxious oxygenic gas after this process which is extremely dangerous to humans. What can members of the Berkeley community do to create a safer environment? Iraw suggested that the first move should be to obliterate all the trees in the Berkeley area. The next steps would be: to build as any factories as possible in the campus area. Not only will this enhance the beauty of the campus but the machinery will produce a large quantity of carbon dioxide to make up for what the trees have been absorbing. to use as much paper as possible. Since paper is made from wood, hence from trees, by making multiple photocopies, computer printouts, pamphlets and fliers, waste will be maximized. Most people ' s reaction to the news is very mixed between panic and disbelief. Yesterday, a group of students held protests against the de- struction of trees. Some students even went so far as to hug the trees. Fortunately, the emergency medical system was alerted quickly and these students are now under surveillance in carbon dioxide tanks at this time. WILLIAM CORLEY TREES LIKE THESE CAN BE EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH St S ls You can help solve this menace and pro- mote safety on campus by giving out as many (Hers os possible.

There was a decision among UC Berke- ley voters yesterday that has made it illegal to say anything unpolitically cor- rea on campus. There was a 72% ma- joriry in this vote, an extremely high percentile found in any campus when voting over such a delicate issue. The majority of students celebrated en masse outside the MLK Student Union, but some doubters still voiced their opin- ions. ' ' The idea of being politi cally cor- rea sounds fine enough, " said one con- fused freshman. " But what happens if you accidentally say something that is not P.C.? " Most students view this le- galization of mandatory political cor- rectness as positive. They have already decided to create a new politically correct vocabulary in honour of the movement. TTiis vocabulary will include terras like " metabolically challenged " instead of " dead " , " vertically limited " instead of short, and " folically challenged " instead of bald. " We ' re still debating over the new term for " shon " though, a soph- omore stated. M DIE! :very time a Berkeley student valks by a recycling bin on :ampus, he is threatened with he slogan, " Recycle or Die! " ' his is a good poignant slogan vhich reflects the quintessen- ial Berkeley image of a town ' s ingle-minded struggle to save he environment. Yet, one im- portant element of the city Joes not seem to share this en- husiasm — the Berkeley City Council. The geniuses decided not to provide a service for re- cycling plastics because it was not politically correct to use plastic at all. So instead, we have to transport our recycla- ble plastics out of town. . .as though the majority of Berkeley residents would do that. P.S. This article is not a joke. But the City Council certainly is! Concept by DIANA TEPPER BERKELEY ' S A JOKE 63 -ir TT i UC Berkeley students have had a serious ri- valry with Stanford for many, many moons. Yet it is hard to tell why on Earth Cal Berkeley would feel it had to compete with Stanford at any level. Let me ex- plain to you how a stu- dent gets in Stanford: 1 . They apply to Berke- ley. They do not get in. 2. They apply to Har- vard, Yale and Prince- ton. Surprisingly enough, they do not get in. 3. They apply to NAS- SAU but do not get ac- cepted. 4. They try to join the Army but they do not f MM. d 1 FtJ S get in. 5. They apply for a job in the Postal Service but they do not get hired. 6. They try to get a job on AC Transit. No luck. 7. They apply to Stan- ford and start school Now if you remember the hell you went through in order to get in Cal, you must realize that we are infinitely su- perior to " Stanfurd " in every way. So why the rivalry? — Diana Tepper --1 fW. ¥ a 1 i 9 f ®MkJ K.

But when a group of activists and count- er-culture people began planting flowers on that land in the Spring of 1969, they touched off a conflict that would haunt the city and the University for the next two decades and be- yond. The 1960 ' s were notorious as a peiod of change in Berkeley: the Civil Rights Movement in the early 60 ' s was followed by the Free Speech Movement (FSM) in the Fall of 1964, a period of unprecedented (and un- repeated) student activism. Concern over the Vietnam War also spilled over into protests and action. Somewhere amid the s peeches and the fury, the University ' s Development Committee decided to build a playing field on lot 1875- 2, to replace the field lost when Zellerbach Auditori- um was built. Eventually, they hoped to put another residence hall on the land, but lacked funding. The lot lay idle while rains and op- portunistic motorists turned it into a muddy, littered, free parking lot. About the same time that the University was making its unpublicized plans for lot 1875-2, someone at the underground San Francisco Express Times suggested in the paper ' s March 31, 1969 edition that the eyesore be turned into a public Park, and the stage for conflict was set. APRIL 13, 1969 — At a plan- ning meeting, students, dreamers and activists, led by Mike Delacour, ex- plained that a community- built park on the land would give the counter-culture something constructive to do and create a sense of community spirit. APRIL 18, 1969 — The Berkeley Barb published an article inviting people to bring " shovels, hoses, chains, grass, paints, flow- ers, trees, bulldozers, top- soil, colorful smiles, laugh- ter and lots of sweat " to the vacant lot the following Sunday. APRIL 20, 1969 — On Sun- day afternoon, 200 people showed up to work. As po- lice watched, they cleared the land, laid sod, and danced to the music of the Joy of Cooking. Work continued over the month ahead, uninterrupted by the University or the po- lice. Some weekends, up to 3000 people came out — men and women of all eth- nicities and ages, both " hip " and " straight " . At the end of April, the University announced that it would begin construction of an intramural soccer field and underground garage on the land by July 1, and re- quested that the people va- cate the " park. " APRIL 15, 1969 — At 4:30 am, police cleared the re- maining people from the land. At 6:20, as 100 people gathered to watch, a crew erected an eight-foot high cyclone fence around the lot. By noon, a crowd had gathered on Sproul Plaza to hear various speakers. Urged on by student body President-elect Dan Siegal, the crowd began to chant " Take the park! " They moved down Telegraph, breaking Bank of America ' s glass door. At Telegraph and Haste, the crowd ran into a line of 75 police officers, and exchanged taunts. Someone opened a fire hydrant, and the march quickly turned into a riot. Protestors threw debris; the police responded with tear gas. At 1:40 pm, the Al- ameda County Sheriff dep- uties were called in — and issued shotguns loaded with pellets. While other officers used " admirable restraint, " the deputies (who later came to be called the " Blue Meanies " because of their resemblance to the author- ities in the Beetle ' s movie. Yellow Submarine) fired in- discriminately. By 6:00 pm, the worst of the violence was over. Final count: (although the groups involved disputed these fig- ures) 67 injuries, 6 of them police, 1 3 of them UC Berkeley students. One man, a 25-year-old non- student named James Rec- tor, later died of his pellet- shot wounds. The day came to be called " Bloody Thurs- day. " PEOPLE ' S PARK 77 „v !k VJ. At 9 o ' clock that night, then- governor Ronald Reagan called the National Guard to duty, imposing a 10 pm to 6 am curfew on the city. By morning, three battalions of the 49th Infantry Brigade were settled onto the Park. They would remain for three weeks. May 17, 1969 — A group of young " hippie-type females " used " chemical warfare " against the Guardsmen, of- fering them oranges, fudge and apple juice — laced with LSD. The Guards- men reported no lasting side-effects. MAY 29, 1969 — A memorial service for James Rector on Lower Sproul turned into another protest. Although reports differ as to what exactly happened next, all agree that a National Guard helicopter buzzed the crowd at 200 feet, lower than usual, spraying a cloud of tear gas. Police on the ground threw tear gas canisters at WILLIAM CORLEY the fleeing crowd. Wind spread tear gas over the campus and the community, sickening people up to a half-mile away and prompting outrage. William F. Buckley remarked in the conservative National Review, that the " California National Guard enjoys the dubious distinction of having initiated the first air strike against an American college campus. " Demanding investigation of the day ' s incidents, 177 professors voted to cancel their classes until the Guard left the city. MAY 23, 1969 — The Academic Senate passed a sim- ilar resolution, and called for the removal of the fence. MAY 25, 1969 — Governor Reagan lifted the ban on meetings and the curfew, but a state of emergency re- mained in effect. Guardsmen began to leave the city, at the request of the University. JUNE 2. 1969 — As the remaining Guards left the city, Reagan lifted the three-week-old state of emergency. JUNE 6, 1969 — The Utopian dreams of the Park ' s builders had once again drifted to violence, and the Annex was out of c:ontrol. Neighbors complained of theft, rapes, noise and rampant drug use. That night, police swept the Park, ar- resting some who refused to leave. The battle continued throug hout the summer, with protes- tors cutting holes in the fence around the original Park. The University built its athletic fields on the land, but everyone from the soccer team to ttie Infratornity ( ' ouncil boycotted IhiMii. Th(! fury over th( Fiirk incidents also load the )(]il ' Ca- Ji oriiiun to secede from the University. In the early 1970 ' s, six Alameda Country Sheriff ' s deputies were brought to trial for acts committed on " Bloody Thursday " ; of these, three wore acquitted and three resulted in hung juries. 78 PEOPLE ' S PARK 43Hf 80 PEOPLE ' S PARK MAY 8, 1972 — After nearly two years of relative quiet, Nixon ' s announcement of the blockade of North Vietnam sparked more violence. In two days of near anarchy, Southside was rocked by van- dalism, burning, looting and protests. Over the course of the next week, protestors brought down the fence and began a small res- urrection of the original park. After several at- tempts to control things, the University backed off, realizing that the land had become a symbol, an emotionally-charged rallying point, for its creators and anyone who disliked the Establishment, as rep- resented by the University of California. In all, there had been over 800 park-related ar- rests in the 1960 ' s — more than for the Free Speech Movement in 1964. The fighting may have appeared to be over, but the ideas and the emotions generated and embodied in lot 1875-2 were seeds of an issue that was far from over. The Summer of 1991 — Twenty years later. Peo- ple ' s Park is once again the scene of conflict and violence. In May 1991, the University agreed to lease People ' s Park to the city for five years at SI a year. During the negotiations, park advocates voiced the opinion that the park should remain undeveloped and that the terms of the lease ex- cluded the current users of the park. To respect their rights, the final accord asserted that certain parts of the park, such as the free-speech stage, would remain untouched; however, the University proceeded with plans to build volleyball courts at the south end of the park. As park advocates or- ganized to protest the University ' s plan, police from the City of Berkeley, Alameda County, and the City of Alameda Police Department gathered in force. JULY 31, 1991 — 8:30 am bulldozers arrive. Dem- onstrators throw rotten apricots at the police who erect a barricade around the perimeter of the park. By 10:30 am, 36 people were arrested for trespassing and obstructing the police in the first encounter between police and demonstrators. That night, nine more were arrested during a riot up and down Telegraph Avenue involving over 200 people. Wit- nesses reported violence on both sides — police beating demonstrators with batons and demonstra- tors hurling rocks at police. Amidst the light of bonfires in the street, stores along the Avenue reported smashed windows and some cases of looting. The windows of the ASUC Store were also smashed, along with the windows of Kroeber and Wurster Halls. AUGUST 1 — Day 2 of the protests began as protes- tors attempted to thwart construction despite the police ' s efforts to keep them away. Although the police have begun to shoot rubber bullets to scatter the crowds, no major injuries were ropnrtnd. How- ever, the police announced that they will use force if further rioting occurs. AUGUST 2 — Day 3 and the violence resumes with re- newed intensity. The police begin shooting gas-project wooden and putty bullets in order to disperse the crowds that gathered near Boalt Hall on campus. The police said that the bullets were more a humane tactic than batons because the bullets are shot against the ground and ricochet the demos- trators in the legs. Never- theless, numerous people, including by-standers who were not involved in the protests, were hit by the bullets which bounced up above the legs and hit their backs and heads. AUGUST 3 — Day 4 was comparatively calm, signal- ing the waning of resistance to the volleyball courts ' con- struction. About 400 police, using wooden bullets, scat- tered the 200 of so demon- strators that gathered at the corner of Haste and Tele- graph. Sixteen people were arrested for charges of dis- orderly conduct, weapons violations, interfering with the officers and assault. AUGUST 4 — Day 5, a " cease fire " between protes- tors and the police was called by city officials. A peaceful march of about 150 people made its way around town as far as North Berke- ley and returned to the park at 9:00 pm. In the end, over the six days of protest, riots and vi- olence, 83 people had been arrested. Every store in the near vicinity of the park had boarded or broken win- dows. $45,000 in taxpayers ' money was spent on the ex- tra police force that had been called in from other departments around the area. These six days represent more than the issues of the land-use problem of Peo- ple ' s Park. Times have changed since the 60 ' s, es- pecially with respect to the relationship between students and the commu- nity. The volleyball courts were a visible use of funds, built for student recreation. Students ' re- actions to the past six days took the form of questions, debate and ap- athy. Some students not- ed that the real issue was the homeless situation. Others thought that the University did not neces- sarily have the capability or the responsibility to address the homeless problem. The park no longer serves as the center of so- cial experimentation and scene of political activism as it did during the 60 ' s. No longer can park sup- ports rely on galvanizing student support by ap- pealing to their idealism. The Park had become a site for drug dealers, tran- sients, and the homeless. Though volleyball courts were not the answer to solving crimes or the homeless situation, the unnecessary violence over the Park showed that the answers are not clear cut. The San Francisco Chronicle reported in the August 17th issue " Three View of People ' s Park, " addressing the different aspects of the Park situ- ation. On the philosophical function of the Park, Mike Delacour said, " What we can hope for is a place where there ' s an open meeting every day, a community gathering place for everybody, in- cluding those groups that historically people are trying to destroy . . . Peo- ple ' s Park is about that — empowerment for people who may have no place else to go to be, in a sense, PARK PAST — Jeni Ternstrom PARK PRESENT — Ellen Kumagawa Layouts — Andy Dong Photos — William Corley a part of something. " Comparing the past to the present, Philip Doran, Cap- tain of the Berkeley Police Department, offered " Then, it was a broader-based group, one that was very much questioning the au- thority of the Univeristy to use and develop land as it wanted to without any sort of community participa- tion. . .There have never been more than 500 people involved in this at any giv en time, and usually it ' s about 200. I don ' t think their mo- tivation has a lot to do with idealism. . .homelessness is a part of it. " From the merchants point of view, Moe Mosckowitz, owner of Moe ' s Books on Telegraph Avenue, com- mented " It ' s become a very tough place to run a busi- ness. There ' s been an enor- mous increase in rough- looking people and crazed peole and aggressive pan- handling. I don ' t even know who ' s radical anymore. The activists speak of them- selves and the University, and they don ' t include the rest of the people. . .1 call it ' Some People ' s Park. ' I feel bad about the whole thing. I wish I could do something. " In March 1992, the Uni- versity completed the con- struction of toilet facilities and basketball courts by hir- ing many of the people who live in the Park. Is the saga over?. . .who won? Whatever these an- swers may be, no other small plot of land in the world has seen so much contention and violence. And one must inevitably ask, " Was it worth it? " PEOPLE ' S PARK 81 WM T R A D I T I O N S CALIF THE BIG " C " on Charter Hill was built on March 18, 1905 by the men of the classes of 1907 and 1908, who formed a human chain to relay building materials up the slopes through a heavy rain. 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 the 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 Garff Wilson was asked to prepare a eulogy. The reading of the eulogy at the rally became a tradition. The eulogy emphasizes the philosophies of clean living and good sprtsmanship taught by Coach Smith. The fire flickers low and burning candles are heald, as the eulogy brings the rally to a dose in the inner shadows of the Greek Theater. CLASS STRUCTURE:For many decades, each class - Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors — had its own organization, held its own meetings and stages its own activities. The officers included the traditional President, Vice-President, but in addition there was always a class yell leader. These class structures no longer exist. Research by ADRIAN PARK Layouts by DIANA TEPPER 2 82 CAL TRADITIOMS ORNIA 3IG GAME WEEK AND REUNIONS precede the playing of the itanford Califomia football game each November. In the past, Big jame week consisted of the singing of California songs for a few ninutes at the start of each class, spontaneous rallies between classes, jid a rally on the night before the game. Garff Wilson wrote in " Color rhem Blue and Gold, " that " a lost tradition was the practice of singing n classes on the Friday before the Big Game and before other mportant football games. Sometimes, the instruaor himself would tart the singing, sometimes he would call on a student to do it, ometimes it began spontaneously. The singing lasted for five or ten ninutes, then the serious business of instruction took over. " This radition continued for many years; however, by the early 1960 ' s it had Jmost disappeared, being upheld by only a few loyal professors. )TANFORD AXE first appeared at a Stanford-California baseball 5ame in San Francisco, April 15, 1899, when the 15 " steel blade nounted on a four-foot handle was displayed in the Stanford rooting «ction to the accompaniment of the taunting axe yell. At the dose of he game, irate Califomians wresded the axe from its guardians and ;ucceeded in outdistancing the Stanford pursuit. The awkward handle vas sawed off in a butcher shop. The blade was wrapped in butcher Daper and hidden under a young man ' s overcoat. Stanford enlisted the lelp of San Francisco policemen who guarded the entrances to the erries, the only transportation aaoss the bay. Our young Califomian ecognized a young woman friend and peacefully escorted her past the ards, onto the boat. The Axe remained in Berkeley for 31 years. For the annual Axe S.ally, it was brought from the vaults of the First National Bank in an irmored car guarded by the Rally Committee and the Freshmen. .J CAL TRADITiOMS 83 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 Stanford men, posing as a newspaper photographer, called for a picture. Flashlight powder was ignited and a tear bomb tossed among the guards, as others of the " 21 " grabbed the Axe and rushed it to an awaiting car. 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 STXJNTS 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 California 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 unseeen pen, aaoss the rooting section. 84 CAL TRADITIOMS M " OSKJ " , 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 papier mache head caricaturing a student, who represents the official Bear mascot. Oski ' s identity is kept strictly secret. Oski turned 50 years old in the Fall of 1991. FRESHMEN-SOPHOMORE BRAWL was organized in 1907 after the banning of the Charter Hill rush. The rush was a race berwen 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 clas 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 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 Stanford in 1 89 1 - In 1903, the Greek Theater became the sight of the bonfire rallies. The Axe Rally was the one occasion of the year on which the Stanford Axe was taken from its bank vault and shown to the student body. Prior to 1919, it was decided that the rally would be held before the opening of the Stanford-California baseball series. The significance of the rally died in 1930, but a rally before the night of the Big Game remained active. The Big Game Rally is now called the Axe Rally in those years in which California is in possession of the Axe. PRANKS: Over the years, there has been a number of famous pranks. A few years back, the BUST Committee (Burn the Ugly Stanford Tree) dropped 60,000 blue and gold fliers during the Stanford rally, " bearing " a " philosophical " message. Blue and gold mice have been put in Stanford dorms. The building near where Stanford has its rally was painted blue and gold. CAL TRADITIONS 85 SPIRIT THE BAND: What would the campus be without the California band which includes the S traw Hat, Concen, and Marching Bands? The Marching Band celebrated its 100th birthday last year. 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. Hail to California Hail to California, Alma Mater dear Sing the joyful chorus, Sound it far and near; Rallying ' round her banner. We will never fail; California, Alma Mater, HaU! Hail! Hail! Hail to California, Queen in whom we ' re blest; Spreading light and goodness, Over all the west; Fighting ' neath her standard, We shall sure prevail; California, Alma Mater, Hail! Hail!

Gorbachev and his family were placed under house arrest in the Crimea on August 19, 1991, as an eight-man emergency committee led by Vice-President Gennady Yanayev took power in a coup attempt in the now former Soviet Union. Crowds of perplexed people wandered among the many Soviet tanks parked behind the Red Square during the military coup hours. Convoys of Soviet tanks moved into Moscow, less than two miles from the Kremlin. The Communist hard-liners who ousted Gorbachev sent the army ' s tanks rolling within a mile of the Russian Parliament building where Russian President Boris Yeltsin was staying. Yeltsin called on Russians to resist the takeover, and resist they did. Constructing a protective human wall around Yeltsin ' s headquaners, his supporters demanded Gorbachev ' s return. As a former Gorbachev adviser spoke to the aowds, denouncing the coup and demanding that Gorbachev be allowed to address the Soviet people, hands were raised in applause. On Wednesday, as the Community Party denounced the takeover, Yanayev and the other coup leaders fled Moscow. Latvia and Estonia declared immediate independence from the Soviet Union. Before dawn on Thursday, August 22, 1991, an Aeroflot jet arrived at Vnukovo Airport, Moscow, bringing home Gorbachev and his entourage. The coup had failed, and before the day was all through, all coup leaders were arrested except for Interior Minister Boris Pugo, who reportedly killed himself. Russian President Boris Yeltsin waved the while-blue-and-red Russian tricolor flag from the Russian Federation building before a crowd of about 100,000 jubilant supporters celebrating the end of the three-day coup attempt. Bodyguards held bulletproof shields in front of him. Changes in the Communist regime came quickly. In addition to telephone service being cut to all KGB buildings and Gorbachev naming a new chief of the KGB, the statue of the founder of the KGB was toppled while thousands of Muscovites watched.

DON MATTINGLY ' S HAIR — Don Mattingly re- ceived national atten- tion in August 1991 for more than his baseball expertise.

Thomas will succeed Thurgood Marshall who retired on June 27, 1991 In addition to the con- troversy of Thomas ' s le- gal views, a charge of sexual harrassment was brought against him by law professor Anita Hill. Thomas vehemently de- nied the allegations and said, ' ' This is Kafkaesque. Enough is enough. " After much debate over who was right and who was wrong — Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill, the system itself — the Unit- ed States Senate voted to confirm him.

" Happy V HOLIHAVC V 102 EVENTS TERRY ANDERSON FREED Terry Anderson emerged on De- cember 4, 1991, from the dark hole of 6-1 2 years of captivity in Lebanon and was handed over to the U.S. officials, ending a brutal hostage ordeal for both himself and the United States. Asked what had kept him go- ing in captivity, Anderson, the chief Middle East correspon- dent for The Associated Press, said it was his companions, his faith and his stubbornness. " You just do what you have to do, " he said, " You wake up every day and summon up energy from some where, and you get through the day, day after day. " Anderson, 44, the longest-held Western hostage, come to personify the long running hostage ordeal. Asked If he hod any last words for his kidnappers, h( rolled his eyes and said, " Goodbye. " The freedom of Anderson ended a hostage sago that haunted two Americai presidencies. He is the 13th and lost American captive freed since Shiite extremists in 198 ' launched a campaign of seizing foreigners in Lebanon to drive out Westeri influence which they claim corrupted the nation. Many of the Americans wer tortured and beaten during their captivity, and three died. Terry Anderson is shown in Wiesbaden, Germany, on December 5, 1991 witi former hostages Joseph Cicippio (left) and Alan Steen (right). HEROES ' HOME- COMINGS 1991-92 INFOLINE NEWS AND EVENTS 5UPERBOWL XXVI — On an pril day in 1986, Mark ?ypien awoke at 6:30 M. . .then waited all day and night to be told he had seen drafted by the Wash- ngton Redskins in the sixth ound. Most of Superbowl Sun- day 1992, like that draft jay six years ago, was ;pent in anticipation of the jiggest game Rypien vould ever play. Most of he evening was spent :ompleting 18 of the 33 sasses for 292 yards and wo touchdowns. Rypien was named MVP )f the Redskins ' 37-24 Su- )er Bowl victory over Buf- alo on January 26, 1992. Dr. Seuss died in the Spring of 1992. Dr. Seuss is perhaps the most renowned children ' s author. Author of popular books such as The Lorax. Green Eggs and Ham, an d the ubiquitous The Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss pioneered children ' s literature. Many of Dr. Seuss ' s books dealt with the environment and latchkey kids. KURDISH REFUGEES About 2 million Iraqi Kurds and other minorities fled north in April 1991 when Kurdish rebels in the north and Shiit Muslim rebels in the south failed to oust President Saddam Hussein in the aftermath of the Per- sian Gulf War. At least 6,700 of the Iraqi refugees died fleeing to the Turkish border. The most common causes of death among the Kurds were diarrhea, respiratory infections and trauma, the Center for Dis- ease Control reported. And 62 percent of all deaths occurred among children under age five. Military units from the United States and at least seven other countries par- ticipated in a relief effort along with civilian agen- cies from about 20 coun- tries. The relatively quick, cooperative response helped keep the death rate as low as it was. " There were U.S. soldiers, Dutch nurses and Red Cross workers working side by side. There was very lit- tle friction, " Dr. Michael J. Toole of the CDC ' s Inter- national Health Program Office said. " It was really an unprecedented effort. " The United States spent about $443 million on the Kurdish relief effort. A Kurdish child clings onto her father as a parade of refugees make their way north. EVENTS 103 I Europe Life in Eastern Europe was anything but peaceful. Civil War broke out in Yugoslavia. Botl Croatia and Slovenia proclaimed independence on June 25, 1991 and within 24 hours, military tanks were rolling toward border crossings and airports, attempting to secure the country. The trade of artillery fire began. Strong ethnic and political divisions have existed in the country for centuries, but the peaceful co-existence that has been maintained in the region for decades splintered. Serbia ' s Communist-turned-Socialist President, Solobodan Milovic, wants Yugoslavia to survive as a fed- eration even if Slovenia and Croatia secede. But he says the Serb minority in Croatia must remain part of the fed- eration. He is accused by Croatia of covertly backing Serbian militants in the neighboring republic who are fight- ing for territory. The Creations claim the federal army is siding with the insurgents, a charge the army denies. 104 EVENTS V MIDEAST PEACE TALKS — Arabs and Israelis left Ma- drid, Span, with mixed feel- ings of frustration and an- ticipation after an intense foray into the realm of peace. Israel and Syria were mired in recrimina- tions, but promised to meet again. The talks smashed a 43- year taboo on direct Israe- li-Arab talks, setting in mo- tion a process of face-to- face negotiations to re- solve one of the most in- tractable regional conflicts in the world. The United States and Soviet Union sponsored the November talks, and Pres- ident Bush ' s assessment was, " We have a long way to go and interruptions will probably occur.but hopes are bright. " The brightest are for ne- gotiations between Israel and the 1.7 million Pales- tinians living under its mil- itary rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The dim- mest ore for a thaw be- tween Israel and Syria, the regions ' strongest military powers, and most bitter foes. The late-night talks in Madrid were the first-ever direct discussion between Israel and Syria and they lasted five hours, into the early hours of the morning. But the enemies failed to move even an inch from their positions, or even shake hands. Even coffee breaks were taken in sep- arate rooms. Syria refused an Israeli re- quest to establish direct contacts to arrange the site for the next round of talks, scheduled later in November, 1991. Nonetheless, both agreed to meet again — if the United States comes up with an acceptable lo- cation. Officials on both sides said Washington or other sites in North America were possible. Eventually, New York City, the site of the United Nations, was de- cided upon. EVENTS 105 KUWAIT OIL WELL FIRES Firefighters were unpre- pared for the sight they were met with in Kuwait — scores of oil wells sending plumes of red and orange flames 30 yards into the air. Oil lakes and soot black- ened the sand. During the seven-month Iraq i occupation of Kuwait, more than 730 oil wells were damaged or set ablaze. Firefighting crews have been able to extin- guish 684 wells within a 6 month time frame. When the effort to com- bat the blazes began in March, it took an average of four days to put out one well fire, Later, the teams were averaging 8.5 wells each day, according to Oil Minister Hamous al-Rquba. Oil experts said that if the effort continued at the same rate, the wells would be capped before the end of December 1991, earlier than the projected date of March 1992. The work ac- tually finished in late Jan- uary 1992. The faster rate of prog- ress has been attributed to the availability of needed equipment, the comple- tion of the water system and growing experience of the firefighters. Teams from the United States, Canada, China, Iran, Kuwait, Hungary and Franc e worked together to clean up the environmen- tal disaster. SOUTH AFRICA President F.W. de Klerk, Af- rican National Congress President Nelson Mandela and Zulu Inkatho leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi came together in Septem- ber 1991 when Black and white leaders gathered to sign a peace pact in a bid to end faction fighting that had claimed hundreds of lives in South Africa, mostly black lives. The accord, which cre- ated groups to investigate violent acts by police and citizens, marked the first joint agreement between the government and the two main black move- ments. It was also seen as an im- portant test of whether the main political group can work for reforms to end white-minority rule. The government and the ANC reached a cease-fire in August 1990 and Mande- la and Buthelezi agreed to peace terms in January 1991. But in both instances, the violence raged on. At least 6,000 people have been killed in the past six years. In March of 1992, South Africa held a voter refer- endum to determine whether the ruling power should be split with the black majority. An over- whelming majority of the white-only voters voted in favor of the referendum. Most cited fear of retalia- tion and further violence as reasons for voting in favor of the resolution. Minority white extremist groups vowed to prevent a black from ever participating in the government. 106 EVENTS t.. " This Is the most beautiful, bloodiest, and most demanding of team sports.

Gathered upstairs at Kip ' s (where I actively compete for their attention at first with Women ' s NCAA Basketball), they helpfully suggest possible angles for my story — an overview of the season, a first- timer ' s impressions, anec- dotes, an expose on the scan- dals of the Cal hockey team. " Are there any? " I ask. Well, no. . .someone shrugs. Next question? In truth, there ' s more to ice hockey than just the fights. " It ' s violent, " says one fan, " but it ' s graceful violence. " De- spite the cumbersome padding and the emphasis on brute force, the players move with a grace and finesse rivaling that of dancers. (In fact, at one game, where officials ' calls and delays were irritating both fans and players, one player kept the crowd entertained with a parody of figure skat- ing.) Played late at night, all home games begin at 10:30 pm at Berkeley Iceland, under bright lights, in a cold so in- tense you can see your breath rising in little clouds in front of you, the game has a surreal, almost mystical quality to it. But maybe that ' s just my over- ly-creative English major ' s mind - while I ' m imagining all this, my friend Steve is sitting next to me yelling, " You suck! " (among other things) at the referee. CONFESSIONS OF A HOCKEY VIRGIN " I ' m always interested in the first-timers ' reactions, " says left wing Jon Tanimoto. " People seem to either love it or hate it right away. " With me, it was love at first sight. Where else could I scream like a banshee, yelling things that would appall my mother, and have it be not only entirely so- cially acceptable, but encour- aged? A weekly dose of hockey is a better stress release than any number of visits to a psychiatrist. (Just imagine the other team as your chemistry homework, your ex-boyfriend, whatever. . .you get the picture.) The only advice anyone gave me before my first game was to clue me in on the proper response to the crowd-pleasing rallying cry, " Hey (insert appropriate op- posing player ' s name here), your mom called. " To which the rest of the crowd responds, " She said you suck! " to the delight of our players, the distraction of the oth- er team, and the officials ' cha- grin. (This cheer in fact became a minor running joke on my floor in the dormitory. Whenever any- one left a note on the door for a room-mate saying " Your mom called, " the apropriate adden- dum usually appeared at the bot- tom of the note.) The thing no one bothered to tell me, although you ' d think I might have thought of it myself. is that the ice rink is essen- tially a giant refrigerator - i.e., you will freeze to death if you don ' t wear warm clothing. Al- though there is at least one guy in our group who insists on wearing shorts to every game, (and some people who buy popsicles at the breaks), I was decidedly more comfortable at the second game, wearing a turtleneck and thicker socks. Another thing a first time spectator should realize is that hockey games are divided into three periods, not four as most other sports seem to be. Know- ing this, you will not sit numb- ly for a moment at the end of the third period, wondering where everyone is going, as did certain others among us. A quick overview of hockey slang and terminology might also not be a bad idea. Terms like " right wing " (which calls to mind politics for some of us), " hat trick " (which has nothing to do with magicians — or hats, for that matter), and " body check " (hmmm. . .) do not mean the same things in hockey that they do in the out- side world. The best advice, as far as watching the game itself (which moves so fast the NHL players admit that not even they know where the puck is all the time), is to watch the puck since the action is sure to follow it. Look for passes, saves, rebounds. ICE HOCKEY 109 JUST PUCK IT CHECK THE CZECH just like any other sport — only they happen ten times faster here. The more games you watch, the more you ' ll see in them. Of course an integral part of the hockey experience is the crowd, which adds to the game ' s celebrated atmosphere with its taunts and rowdy cheers. Although most of these are unprintable, some fans get quite creative. Others go for the obvious: there was the night the band turn to an opposing goalie, buried in nearly 30 pounds of padding, and began to yell, " You ' re so fat! You ' re so fat! " Whatever their style hockey games would be frightening without the fans, and the band. 1 few " Go Bears! " and declaring later that he had enjoyed the experience. Foward Tim O ' Connor ( 21) leans in, suddenly serious, when the sub- ject of funding comes up. Since the Hockey Club is Rec Sports and not NCAA, the team receives only about $2000 in school funding per season. Ice time alone costs $170 an hour. The difference — equipment, publicity, travel costs - comes out of the players pockets. " The Cal band is a special part of the crowd, " says left wing and team captain Kenny Kim [ 77]. " Other teams, like USC and UCLA, have a crowd, but not the support of a band, and it makes a big difference. " Hockey crowds, and especially Cal ' s, are like no others.

In fact, we would not have any of the modern conve- niences that allow us to max- imize our time spent working while increasing productivity, creativity and inventiveness. All this thanks to those 3000 or so students located on the North side of campus. While most seem to think that engineers spend most of their time contemplating complex equations, engi- neers actually devote the bulk of their time designing and imagining. In classes such as Mechanical Engi- neering 110 or 135, students are asked to invent, design and fabricate workable products within a single se- mester. Some of these proj- ects include a car ENGINEERS 1 13 includes With the completion of Soda Hall, the Electrical Engineering Department will embark on a new era of electronics research whic h includes multi- mctJici system integration (]LiK kly is today ' s supertomputers. 14 ENGINEERS that parallel parks automatically, a computer driven automobile, an automated drink mixer, a cordless battery recharger and a " smart " mouse that can learn to travel through a maze. According to Pro- fessor Dennis K Lieu, " These projects force the students to combine their creative skills with their engineering intuition and technical capabilities, " because the successful engineer is the one who can both create, design and market a product that a con- sumer will want to buy. Perhaps what turns so many students off to engineering rath- er than the more " glamorous " ca- reers of invest- ment banking or law is the math and science re- quired. And let ' s face it, engi- neers are com- monly portrayed as nerds with lit- tle social life and few worldly inter- ests. This unfortu- nate misunder- standing is easily refuted simply by examining the creative products de- signed by engi- neers. Who would remark that the Golden Gate Bridge is not a work of art? How many would not drive a Porsche? Have you ever thought how one can manufacture a pen for just pennies each? Mass production is not the answer. The real situation is that American society places little importance on making things, and would be con- tent to let someone else make them. All one needs to do to verify this fact is to compare the number of students applying to law school versus gradute school in engineering. And with the dismal state of science and mathematics in secondary school education, versus the ever increas- ing salaries of lawyers and investors, the trend away from a design and manufacturing economy will most likely continue. Interesting enough, in Japan, the technical universities have noticed a sharp drop in the number of appli- cants while the business and law schools have received a ten-fold in- crease in the number of applicants. The Japanese universities have ac- tually begun importing technical stu- dents from Korea and China. But who cares right? Who wants to go engineering school?

Is engineering for you even though you seem to love words more than numbers? If you see yourself as a designer or builder — whether of structures, machines, electrical circuits, or systems of operation, then en- gineering may be the right course of study for you. If you would enjoy working as a manager or administrator of a technical enterprise, an engineering degree could be the best background to meet your goals. If you see yourself as a researcher In a technical field, then an education in en- gineering or one of the physical sciences may be your right choice. Most engineering research is directed toward a specific ob- jective, applying science to meet a par- ticular human need. It is most often a team effort involving people with engineering. science and business backgrounds. While It Is true that you will not find many engineers studying in a cafe, as most upper division courses In engineering require more problem solving In a laboratory setting, en- gineers by no means need be, or are, the uncultured genre depicted by many ster- etypes. Many Col engineers row with Crew, play In the Gal band, edit the yearbook, par- ticipate In the ASUC, demonstrate with the masses and party at the fraternities. So what Is it then that still keeps people away from the engineering profession and flocking towards law school and business school? Surely, the structure of society is one important factor. Though everybody hates lawyers, everybody still wants that Arnle Becker lifestyle. But most likely, it Is a misunderstanding of just what does go on in engineering school. ENGIMEERS 117 BUILDING THE V MD « Most of the staff and students at Berkeley today are aware of Berkeley ' s history from the 50 ' s to the 80 ' s. But few realize the true history behind this Uni- versity, which began in 1853, when Hen- ry Durant arrived in California, anxious to establish a school which he dreamed would grow into a college similar to Yale or Harvard. Those who came to California in the 1850 ' s were explorers who found them- selves in a very new territory. In Oak- land, for instance, there were very few inhabitants. Land titles were uncertain, " possession " being the way the early Calif ornian gained land. When Durant told the community he wished to build a school, the other inhabitants of the area consented and told him to select Km. a site, and none would lay claim to it. A building that would be a boy ' s school was delayed in ' construction due to a lack of funds. " Jumpers " planned to go into the unfinished building to gain possession. Henry Durant, ' ' who learned of their intention, slept in on enclosed room to maintain own- ership of the building. The next day. a " jumper " made a show of force in or- der to get the property. Dr. Durant, who had an axe under his bed. defied the " jumper " and refused to surrender. This boy ' s school, known as College School or Broyton ' s. grew rapidly. By 1858 land in Berkeley was chosen to permanently house the College of Ca- lifornia. UC Berkeley ' s predecessor by ten years. By 1860, organized college life had begun. But, meanwhile, the Civ- il War had been fought, leaving the caused the College of California to be low in funds. No one came fonvard with an endowment to support the institu- tion. • i L aH iJ E r Bfl 1 ilkV ' J N-i i ollege of California but the University continued to grow. At one of the later commencements. Collfomio Gover- nor Low sold, " Now. here you hove scholarship, system, organization, reputation, everything but money; but we. the State, hove none of these things, but we have money; what a pity that they could not be brought together, " Eventually, the facilities of the College. of California were offered to the State. A charter was prepared by a man named John Dwinelle. and completed on March 23, 1868. In 1869. the first Freshman Class of 26 young men entered the University of California at Berkeley, which had a faculty of 10, A member of that first Freshman class. George C. Edwards, recalled what life was like at UC Berkeley those first four years. Applying to UC Berkeley was a group of peo- ple who had changed their plans of going East to Princeton or Yale as was the custom before. According to George C. Edward ' s account of applying to Berkeley, it was not a simple matter of taking the SAT and mailing applications. For Instance, one of the Incoming Freshmen was LL Hawkins, from a town on the other side of the Sierras, where he had worked oil summer as a cowboy. . o . When he de- rai«nT Hi i ji iin KS itzT!t»mnt Berkeley. 0 formed his em- " he in- (j, ployer and asked for his pay. Only a ? part could be paid In ? coin, so the employer told ' Hawkins that he might go Into his manada of horses and take any one to offset $30 of the account. Haw- kins went out among the horses and se- lected a perfectly built four year old that never had a rope on him except when as a colt, he had been thrown and branded. When Hawkins mounted, he found that he was astride of the hardest bucking horse he had ever seen. After a few minutes of bucking around the corral, he shot out through the opening and the ride to Oakland and the University was begun. " By the time this Freshman class had grad- uated, the Berkeley campus was ready for use. But the physical aspects of the campus were still undeveloped compared to what the cam- pus looks like now. In the Autobiography of Louis Steffens, Steffens describes how: " The University of California was a young compar- atively small Institution when I entered there In 1885 as a Freshman. Berkeley, the beautiful, was not the developed villa It Is now (In 1930); I used to shoot quail In the brush under the oaks along the edges of the college grounds. A ' M v .. - --, w The quail and the brush are gone now, but the oaks arei _ there. " Not only Is the uncultivated aspect of campus! , gone, but also are the days when It was socially ac-l ceptoble to hunt, or even to have a gun on campus. | Also gone are the days when the ROTC was a part of the curriculum. Today, student ' s schedules are purely ac- ' 1 odemlc, but It was not long ago when every student also have two to four years of military training when they - attended UC Berkeley. The ROTC program was protested by students In the 1870 ' s, 1880 ' s 1930 ' s and 1960 ' s and , eventually disassembled. " J Football has also undergone some impressive changes since Cal ' s first game on November 3, 1877, which was v. between the Freshman and Sophomore classes. But some ' -, things never change. The establishment of Stanford Uni-vw ' versify caused Berkeley athletics to take on a new char- " acter. In 1891, Col, eager to play another college team, challenged Stanford to a game. There was one problem J — Stanford did ball team. Col Stanford again Big Game played . i the fact expected would win, .( won. At ' ond Cal- not have a foot-v challenge d In 1892.

It was at this gome that Cal seized the axe, and ' • ' - a fight ensued with each side trying to get a hold on the Vl Axe. V One thing about University life in the first thirty years of _ UC Berkeley ' s existence is clear: although the University ' " was small and quiet, there were still the basic elements of . college life that are still found today — academia, ath- ' i. letics and comroderie.

Some well-knovi ' n designs sit right on campus — the Hearst Mining Building and the Faculty Club, for example. One area that is often overlooked, however, is the Greek row. f The identity of a group, after all, lies partly in its house, a place to live, socialize, and " come home to. " Although most fraternity and sorority 1 ouses 1 houses are somewhat sparse on the inside, aside from the requisite pool table, the exteriors are part of Berkeley ' s rich architectural tradition. Some structures were originally private residences, while others were designed specifically as fraternity houses. Here a few of the most visible ones: ► AKE (Delta Kappa Epsilon) 2302 Piedmont Designed by architect " Mr. Seely " in 1909 for one Mr. F. Woodward, this sprawling brick house is in the Craftsman style popularized by Bernard Maybeck.

" Text Layout by Lara Vinnard 133 134 The yogin who Is Identified with the all- pervading consciousness and looks on all equally, sees the self In all beings and all beings In the self. — Bhagavad Qlta Hinduism, possibly the oldest extant religion, rests on this concept of the unity of all things. No being, no action, no thought. Is separate from the universal sea of enmeshed existence, nor has It ever been. It thus becomes the task of each Individual to realize this urKlerlying interconnectedness of spirit — thereby exposing the illusory sheen, called maya, of physical phenomena arvd personal at- tachment. Though pleasure (kama), wealth (artha), and duty (dharma) are all recognized as aspects of human life, these are only transitory offshoots of maya, and attachment to these things prevents one from reaching the true goal of existence — liberation, or moksha, from earthly bonds. Until these earthly bonds are broken, one ' s soul passes from physical form to form In a continual cycle of rebirth. In Hlrxhilsm, the body Is not a temple (as Christianity espouses) but a prison — and one can only break free through the realization that It is one ' s own dependence on the sensations and needs of the physical body which keeps one chained within It Many devotional F aths are open to those who wish to achieve moksha arxl break this cycle of rebirth. Bhaktl yoga Is the way to salvation through love, ar)d devotees often choose a particular god in the Hirxhi pantheon to worship. Other forms of yoga follow almost a self-help format. For the contemplative person- ality there is Jnarta yoga, which offers salvation through study arxl learning. On this path one slowly leams from religious texts arxl philosophers to view everything from a vantage point of detachment and wisdom. In this way, attatchment to " asmlta, " the " l-rjess " of one ' s personality, disappears. Yet another form is for the active person — karma yoga — In which one performs good acts arxl selfless service. The final form Is for the experiential personality — raja yoga. In raja yoga, the yogin follows eight steps which lead him beyond physical senses aixl desires to a period of intense concentration In which the yogin k ses all sense of self and becomes one with the Infinity of time, space, and matter. In doing so he taps into the sense of god within all of us, the atman. By uncovering that sense of the atman, one can achieve moksha, break the cycle of rebirth, arxl leave behind all the useless strappings of the gross physical body. This is iK t a merging with god, but a realization that the soul has always l)een and always will be a part of the One Brahman — Absolute Being, Consciousness, aixl Bliss. Western notions of the self fall in sharp contrast to this Hlrxlu perspective. R. LanrK y, in The Speaking Tree asserts that the Indian rejection of the physical body in favor of a spiritual union with Brahman Is an Instance of what psychiatrist R.D. Laing call " the divided self. " This " dlsassodatton " between mind and body falls in line with " Lalr g ' 8 description of schlzokl attltixJes in the alienated Western Individual. " (368) Larmoy claims that, in reaching the state of consciousness so valued in the Hindu religion, such an irxlivldual Is actually in a state of self-lrxluced paranoia. Hlrxlu society, he says, has normalized p athok glcal schizophrenia as an ethical Ideal. It of course never occurs to him to question his starxlard of " rx nT al ' (I.e. Western) ethical behavior to determine where his bias might be. Laruxjy ' s main feeling Is clear, " Much of Irxlla today is a terrlfyingly accurate physical reflectkm of allertated psychotogy. " (369) It would be difficult to argue that Christianity, which fosters sightings of Jesus In tortilla shells arxl In which the truly faithful experience stigmata (spontaneous bleeding on the body at the sights of Jesus ' wourxls on the cross), is any less aller ted. The Hindu conc«pt of arxl desire for moksha Is hardly evidence of a cultural predlsposltkxi to mass self-lrxiuced schizophrenia. Rather, I wouM posit that people foUowlr the Htrvhj path to salvation have a far tess fettered and far more all-lrKluitv« understanding of the strength, resilience, and awesome capabilities of the human mlixl. Those wtio come within even a glimpse of the Incredible power of such a release experterxre as moksha, and who live In a culture which will guide them Into understanding an d Integrating such an experience Into their lives, are conning far ckiser to realizing the true potential of the human mirxl than we In the West will ever be capable of.

" THE PSYCHIATRIC ANALYSIS: Twentieth century diagnosis of manic depression and schizophrenia is often based on the observation of sudi characteristics as: die " messiah complex " in which the individual sees him hetsdf as a savin or diild of God, the " prophet experience " in which the individual is tonnented by horrid visions of die future, and seeks to spread these visions in hopes of staving off imminent destruction, and " auditoty or visual hallucinations " in which the individual may hear voices or instrucdons which seem to come from the heavens. An individual professing such a version of reality would likely be started on daily doses of andpsychodc drugs, and would probably be checked into a mental insdtudon for psychiatric evaluanon.

How then, are these definitions created, and how does this cleav- age of normal and abnormal be- havior occur in society? Rather than existing for the welfare of the la- beled individuals, it has become In- creasingly clear that madness la- bels are often used by dominant social groups as a method of en- forcing societal norms by delegl- tlmizlng unwanted behaviors. tuallzing madness, and that It has led to an egreglously abusive, almost bar- boric mental health system. Wide- spread vise of drugs, coercion, and electroshock treatment as ways of controlling and denying the validity of the " insane " experience are only the more obvious examples of abuse. Be- yond that simply being classified as mentally imbalonced is the first denial of a person ' s right to act in his her own self-interest because an " ill " individ- ual is supposedly no longer capable of clearly evaluating his own condition. Far from being objective cortegoriza- tlons. definitions of mental illnesses are bosed largely on ethnic, econom- pulslons, personality disorders — it would seem that we are wit- nessing a spread of " mental ill- ness " of epidemic proportions. Some psychiatrists have the au- dacity to assert that everyone will suffer from a mental disorder in his her lifetime. This endless cli- entele is enormously lucrative to the psychiatric profession, but how helpful Is It to its victims? Such an all-inclusive definition obscures the needs of those who may truly need help, and victim- izes countless others lo would be best helped in non-medHcal ways. The sane man is nowhere at all when he enters rivalry with the madman. — Phaedrus. Plato Our jjresent system operates on a belief In the " medical model " on Idea popularized in the early (xxrt of this century, which characterizes in- sanity as resulting from an illness or disease in the brain. Prior to thi s century, western European thou t equated madness with criminal de- viance, and treated the insane as such. Thus, from Ita inception, the m edical model was seen as a xr more himiane method of explaining abnormal behavior because it re- moved the onus of responsibility from the unfortuixzte " affbcted " in- dividual Further, this model lodd the foiindotlon for the development of auz institutionalized " mental health " system, i ilch now consists of paid professionals, hospitals, treatment centers, and governmental policies and funding, virtually all of which serve not to support mental heoMi clients, but rather as tools of control profit, and manipulation of marginalized groups. Anti-psychiatry and deinstitution- alization movements have been challenging the medical model and our current system since the late lB60 ' s. Proponents of these move- ments argue that this model is a limiting, destructive way of concep- ic, moral and gender-oriented val- ue Judgements. In this country the dominant " white, upper-class, an- drocentric " minority has been charged with creating and enforc- ing these definitions. Deviate from these norms and be damned. Alan Horwitz, author of The So- cial Control of Mental Dlnees. de- clares that oxir conception of mad- ness lies entirely outside the person who is labeled as such. He points out that while all cultures have an understanding of madness, and have individuals they consider mad. there is no universal definition of insanity. Rather, the " boundaries are culturally specific. " We have created a system which violates and restricts not only in- dividual human rights, but the rights and freedoms of our entire society. Such persorKil liberties aa freedom of religion, freedom of expression. even freedom of thought, are eclipsed by the manipiilation of madness labelling.

Another more metaphysical ap- proach suggests that people iHio claim to hear voices, or who be- come aware of other realities, or who suddenly begin to reevaluate their lives in radical ways, are ac- tually experleiKdng an " ahemortive state of consciousness experience. " This may sound ridiculous now, but past cultures have venerated those with such experiences ca visiona- ries or shamans.

It ' s a truly organic, self- induced altered state. 3) DEVOTE YOUR LIFE TO A HIGHER POWER. Give yourself to God, Buddha, Rev- erend Moon, Pee Wee Herman, or anyone of your own choosing. Start meditating, spinning, praying inces- santly, or any other preferred method to centralize your being into focused devotional energy.

Not wanting to waste away a good dark night, we three (Keri, Kayven, and I) race down Hearst at top speed, dash through the haunted Eucalyptus grove, and skid tp a stop on Center Street beneath that ageless beacon of donuts and bizarro. Every- one I know has a Neutron story. Here ' s ours: It ' s the usual Neutron assortment — folks like ourselves who can ' t figure out how best to utililize that ambig- uous period when it ' s too late for late night but not yet early morning. We are greeted by a gentleman sitting near the door who is releasing gasses alternately from each end of his di- gestive tract and mumbling into his cup of coffee. We purchase a maple bar to split three ways (who thought to bring money?) and settle into the cozy plastic swivel seats (I choose Kayven ' s favorite chair), each of us reveling in the warmth left by recent behinds. We chat the usual chat, we chew the usual chew, and are about to leave when we notice a large man in a dress suit, carrying a Taco Bell baggie and holding a stuffed hippo, who is eyeing suspiciously and blocking the door- way. He sits at the table opposite ours and offers us a half-eaten cinnamon twist from the Taco Bell baggie. Not wish- ing to be impolite, we accept gracious- ly and place the delicacy between us on the table as if it were a fresh kill. As he chews his donut, he moves closer to Keri and tells Kayven and I, " Now you two go around the block and me and Twist ' n ' Curl are gonna get to know each other better. " To Kayven he says, " Looks like you don ' t know the business too well, sir. You ' re not supposed to come in with the la- dies. You wait outside and ask me ' Do you want chocolate or vanilla?

They say it lets in more light for all the art students trapped inside; I think they ' re just-oxygen deprived. Etcheverry Hall, that home-away-from- home for all our mechanical engineers, was designed for pure functionality. The two stairwells were buUt to allow smoke to exit from the building in the event of a fire. Ah, the ingenuity of those engineer types. (If only the elevators worked.) Then there ' s Dwinelle — schizoid Berkeley personified. City lore has passed down a now thoroughly distorted tale that the two architects were feuding brothers o couldn ' t agree on the final plan, so each finished h is own portion independent of the other. That ' s why the first floor of one half becomes the third floor of the other half, and the hallways wind into un- derground timnels which open into shady glades that exist in no other reality.

High Rise ■ ' ■« " Heaven r .y good reply would be, " ' Oh, are you closed now? " or " Do you wont to bus my troy yet? " (Expect o dirty look after saying this,) The next step for the DC an- tagonist would be to sneak into the dining area (this is only necessary if your meal card is blocked or if for some sick reason you want an extra meal), or to sneak food out. (The next time someone on Telegraph asks you for some money " for food, " you can whip out yesterday ' s West Cost pasta or eggplant Parme- san.) Last but least advis- able, would be for the (now professional) enemy- to-the-DC to " borrow " din- ing room items such as forks, spoons, plates, ice- cream machines, glasses, etc. (I once soy a guy walk out with a full set of din- nerware in his coot for a dinner party he was throw- ing.) However, one should be aware that the penalty for such actions is pretty stiff if caught. Some top DC officials have been known to have gone as far as to yell, " Hey you, come bock here!, " at fleeing perper- trators. (The real penalty is a $50 fine.)

Ludwig began swimmng in the fountain the day it was filled with water and often thereafter. Students tossed bones to the dog in the water and found some relief from finals stress. So they decided to name the place after him, which was made official after then Pres- ident Kerr ' s recommendation to the Re- gents. Dwinelle Hall was named aher John W Dwinelle, who in- troduced the bill in 1868 to the state legislature that created the University. If you ever wondered about the mind-boggfing, maze-Uke interior or its seemingly bizarrely numbered rooms, folklore has it that Dwinelle Hall was designed by two architect brothers, who after a fight, worked on separate halves of the building while rehising to speak to each other. Wheeler Hall was named in memory of Benjamin Ide Wheel- er; the University President came to Berkeley in 1899 from Cornell on the terms that he was to have total control over faculty appointments and salary (Thus, he was President for 21 years!) This power-driven man who rode a dark mare about the campus was forced to retire in 1919. 1 64 HISTORY The Middle Finger by Debbie Yuan The swift bird bore me across the sea — East to West Into the warm receiving hands of my adopted mother, Warm did you say?

" Soon 1 felt the sting of turbulent water pellets through the wire fence that separated me from the group of hostile little boys congregated in the pool. Quickly, I hurried away, hearing only the remnants of the lifeguard ' s response telling them, " Boys, be nice. " Since when did I deserve special treatment and not equality? Such was a day in my life as an Asian American youngster growing up in Texas. Does overt racism go away as people grow older and supposedly more learned? Life in a middle-class suburb of Los Angeles proved more pacific. But, I always won- dered if that aggression and resentment to- ward Asians and minorities had been dis- mantled or merely dispersed. The last place one would guess is right here in the " privacy " of bathroom stalls in Berkeley, that wonderful University of diversity, love, and ethnic tolerance. The walls of the women ' s restroom stalls have been made the confidence of such innermost thoughts, concerns, and fears of one ' s love life, sexuality, and political be- liefs. However, one recurring theme is the blatant racism against Asian women, espe- cially of inter-racial dating, complemented by the question of White identity. In a school in which Asians comprise about one-third of the entire student population, the graffiti found mainly in Dwinelle and Moffit bath- rooms reveal Caucasians ' fears that " Asians are taking over. " Even while 1 read these scrlbblings that often fill an entire stall, 1 could hear someone exclaiming In surprise to a friend, " Whew! Someone really has something against Asian women. " If any- thing, the racist statements on the doors and walls that go back and forth between whites and Asians are enough to make me puke right there and then. The written assaults are so caustic that I could feel its intensity as if it were an on-going verbal war; and cer- tainly, it is still on-going. The following at- titudes are samplings of the suppressed rac- ism against Asian women and how Whites are viewed in light of this. I hope that all of you will be opened up, as 1 have, to the existing rift amont races in Berkeley and in the U.S. that has plagued we Americans in the melting pot for centuries. I ' m curious, how does the Bay Area com- pare to other parts of the country in terms of racism? — In the Midwest, I did not see many White dudes dating Asian women. . .Resentment was not as strong and disgusting as it is out here. Are many Asians here hostile to Whites? (I do not mean to be racist. Just want to know.) — Yes. Asians are taking over. We ' re tak- ing your men first. Oriental women are whores. — It takes a lot of guts to withstand this sort of invective. My childhood was riddled by cowards throwing stones or harrassing me, following me from school to gang up on me. The trash who propogate this s 1 do not understand struggle or dignity. They are lucky that people of color hold their dignity and patience. You orientals. . .Go out with your own kind. Aren ' t they good enough? — What ' s the matter. . .scared that we ' ll take your boyfriend away from you?? — No I feel sorry for you. If you think that White men go not with you for you and not for some " exotic " thrill! 166 WOMEN ' S ISSOES You Asian Oriental bitches! — " Oriental " is a WHITE label for the civilization they coveted, stole, and brutalized and then fetishsized. — Asians will stay until the end, we see the fall of White civilization. — Obviously an education does not necessarily open one ' s mind. Ignorant assholes are everywhere! Why White men like Asian women? ( " the inferior sort of " inserted before " white men " ] Pros Cons Beautiful faces like dolls Cheap Smooth skin especially on legs Over- ly overbearing — You white asses are just plain Jealous over what you don ' t have. It ' s more like white guys love to suck Oriental assesl — Oh, like short legs, flatt butts and micro-breasts as well as a pathetic sub- missiveness to males? Boy I ' m jealous. — FYI. I am 5 foot 6, do not have a flat butt and wear a 36C bra. . . and I ' m Asian! — Well like fat and hairy White girls are so appealing because White girls have weight problems that Asian women don ' t. They also seem to have severe mental problems too. Get some eyelids bitch! — This racism frightens me. I ' m h alf White and half Asian but I hold no biases against either race. . .What the hell Is going on? I am so confused. What does it mean to be " White " ? — Helpless — You think " White " equals rac- ism? What about countries like Ja- pan where everyone who isn ' t " raclcdly pure " Japanese Is consid- ered to be subhuman. Wake up you fools — racism and xenophobia is a worldwide disease, not something " White " people invented. Why is toilet paper white? — It ' s the law. What is a " Woman of Color " ? If I ' m " White, " born in the U.S. of " White " American parents, the children of Russian immigrants, am I not a " woman of Color " ? or " culture " ? — The day we learn to get past all of this will be the day we truly begin to live in a progressive modern society. Please let ' s just all grow up a bit. — All you closed minded hypersen- sitive, hypercritical arrogant women who feel sorry for youselves with huge chips on your shoulders who claim that " White " people lack color, culture or ethnicity are being just as racist and hateful as you ac- cuse claim White people to be. — I ' ve talked to many guys who like Asian girls better. . .anything from " they ' re prettier, " " have more tradi- tional values, " to " they ' re passive fuck me dolls. " Yes, White is indicative of unhealth- iness — sickness — perverseness — To me White is a lack of color. Its purpose is to dilute change actual col- ors. Would my presence be resented at a " Woman of Color " meeting? Why? — Pio. White is the blending of all colors of the spectrum. — science major A WOMEN ' S ISSUES 167 Food not Bombs By Elisa Smith (right, in the Park) and Keri McDonald (below) Poverty is not having control of basic aspects of everyday living such as food, clothing, and shelter. Poverty exists because society is structured in a way that benefits those in power. Power is centralized into the hands of the few through sick economic and political structures of domination while the masses either perpetuate this system, feel powerless against it, or become victims of it by becoming poor. Lobbying for a greater share of the govertunental pie to be spent on sodal ptograms will not address the underlying causes of poverty, nor will it address its attenuating effects of homelessness and hunger. Greater fionding for social programs might " ease " the pain of poverty, but it won ' t eliminate the forces which create and perpetuate it. No real change can be achieved by writing congressmen or voting. We cannot beg for reform in a system which lacks the necessary prerequisites of a just society — one which not only ignores the plight of the poor, but makes no real effort to establish greater economic equality and justice. Appealing to the privileged classes and their institutions is futile when those classes benefit from and thrive upon the exisring status quo. It follows that the solurion can only come from outside the system — that real solutions to poverty will require fiindamental structural change. We can begin this process by crearing altemarive supf ort systems in our communities, indeed, counter institutions which can meet human needs while simultaneously empowering people to gain control of their own lives. Food Not Bombs groups serve such a function in the communries where they exist. And, Food Not Bombs is cool. We get together and engage in the creative aa of cooking hot vegetarian meals and bringing them to share in People ' s Park. We have weekly meetings, and cook, serve, and do dishes Monday thru Friday in order to provide healthy meals for the homeless and poor, activists, hippies, street punks, and really anyone who is hungry at the time. We also do solidarity events, many of which center around the Park since the space itself is such a base for community building. The daily meal there creates an impromptu neighborhood picnic, offering refreshments, an opportunity to gather at the meal, and to remain present in the Park in the face of massive police repression and the chaos of " construction. " Working with Food Not Bombs is unique compared to other institutions because the word " institution " does not apply. We don ' t work under a disempowering " charity mentality " which operates on a sense of " obligation " or guilt toward those who are " less fortunate. " In charities, the role of the giver or " volunreer " is romanticized to suggest a patronizing " savior " or " sacrificial " role. The recipients of such " volunteer services " arc totally separated from the people providing assistance. Such a distinction of " us " and " them " does not exist in Food Not Bombs. We all gather at the Park to eat and hang out together. In this way, we are not serving food, but sharing food. This concept of sharing reflects Food Not Bombs ' general rejection of money as a medium of social relations and food as a capitalist commodity. We give out free food right around the comer from many restaurants, existing on a bare minimum of cash, which we get from donations and use only to buy spices and serving utensils. Food Not Bombs also subverts dominant capitalist ethics by salvaging otherwise wasted food from local produce markets and other contacts. Even though the physical aa of making and sharing food is our main function, a lot of us see our involvement in Food Not Bombs as embodying our basic principles of community organization; we are performing an essential task for the whole community with no rcnumer- ation, operating with no leadership except the sharing of experience and information. Food Not Bombs advocates the aeation of self-sustaining communities which challenge the priorities of the government while simultaneously meeting the human needs negleaed by the government. Members of Food Not Bombs groups across the country have taken back control of their communities by creating an alternative support system, and also by engaging people in their own political process through open, democratic, face-to-face meetings. Food Not Bombs functions as a counter force to dominant institutions, as both an influence on them, and an example of viable alternatives to the existing system. We recognize the need for radical sodal change, as well as the interconneaedness of socia l problems, and we share the vision that these issues merge into one larger projea: aeating a broad social movement (starting in our own communities) of resistance and direa aaion.

LV: Why did you get Involved with SAFA (Students for the Advancement of Film Art)? TF: The film department here Is very theoretically based. Students Interested In making films decided to get together and form film crews to get experience actually making films. At the end of each year we had a film festival, the Blrdleys, to promote student films. Unfortunately this past year we couldn ' t get money for a mini-grant so the group Is In remission. I think that ' s really Indicative of how little funding Is available for the arts, what a low priority the arts scene Is on this campus. Theory without action is steriie, LV: You ' ve also been involved with the Emma Goldman Papers Project here In Berkeley. What Is that group doing? TF: Emma Goldman was a radical anarcho-femlnlst who lived In the early 1900 ' s. She emigrated to the US from Germany, and became really Involved In politics and women ' s issues, advocating sexual liberation for women, criticizing marriage as a form of slavery, and writing about repressive governments and how they limit people ' s freedoms. Since she was so radical, she ' s been excluded from a lot of history books; our goal Is to promote her philosophies and ideas. The Papers Project is collecting all of her writings Into one archive, and recently developed an exhibition of her life which was touring the US. I agree with a lot of what she has to say — she offers on alternative view to Ideas we ' ve been socialized to accept. LV: You ' ve also been singing with the Young Inspiration Gospel Choir. . . TF: I wanted to Join first because I love to sing, and I also thought It would be interesting to get involved with a religious and cultural group because 1 never went to any sort of religious temple or church growing up. The Gospel Choir Is non- denominational, so It wasn ' t a problem that I ' m Jewish. 1 love the energy that comes from gospel. People believe so firmly In that higher power and the energy Itself Is really powerful — It ' s really spiritual to see people getting so wrapped up In It. I ' ve never felt such ecstacy. LV: You ' ve also done a lot of social change wori . Any ideas on what motivates you In that? action without theory is chaos. TF: I definitely feel guilt that 1 come from a privileged background. Other people don ' t hove the same opportunities; I can ' t forget that lest 1 become part of the greedy capitalist machine. I definitely wont to do something that deals with social change or social service. I Just recently finished a forty hour volunteer training session on how to become emotional support volunteers for people with AIDS. Often once someone is diagnosed with HIV they ' re abandoned by their family and friends — patients are even left on their own In hospital beds. AIDS carries such a stigma, and the facts get blurred by all the medio hype. We live In a puritanical country where everything Is a moral issue — Instead of fighting AIDS we treat people with AIDS as lepers who brought the disease onto themselves. LV: How hove you Integrated your formal education at Bert eley? TF: Education at Bertceley Is by no means progressive, but It ' s starting to change a little. You con find a lot of theory In the university, but you have to go out into the community and put It Into practice. I want to take these Ideas and use them In a constructive way and change existing reality. But for now, with the Job market as bad as it is, I ' m ootno to hong low, do some volunteef work, ond oet q crummy lob to pay the rent. Harry Edwards, as quoted by T F Interview Layout by Lara VInnard We Wont Go struggle for women ' s reproductive freedom covers not only abortion, but all aspects of reproductive rights. Whether women have children, how many, and at what intervals de- termines virtually everything else about a woman ' s life. In order for us to live truly self-determined lives we need safe, easy, and effective methods of birth control; freedom from sterilization abuse; access to safe, legal abortions; and adequate health care, especially for low- income women. There is no method of birth control that is 100% effective, but the US government obviously does not consider this a priority as it spends only twenty-five cents per taxpayer, per year on birth control research and development. One of the oldest and most effective forms of birth control is the condom, and yet we still see most research directed toward women — stopping sperm from fertilizing the egg once it is already inside the woman ' s body. The argument for this one-sided approach posits that it is easier to inhibit one egg rather than vast quantities of sperm, thus furthering the current situation in which women are often fully responsible for the method and use of contraception. Birth control is not just a woman ' s issue. Men as well must stand up to demand more effective methods. As it stands, even a woman who uses a method of birth control flawlessly still runs the risk of becoming pregnant. An unexpected pregnancy may force a woman to choose between having a child and continuing a career or school. Men are not usually so directly affected, even though they are equally responsible for the state of pregnancy. Together we must work for social conditions which make raising a child a viable option for women. If the " right-to-lifers " were truly concerned about human life, they would be concerned not only with the fetus, but with what happens to that fetus once it is brought into the world. Unwanted babies can always be put up for adoption, but if they are imperfect in any way, and often simply if they are not white, they may never be adopted. Evidence increasingly points to the frightening possibility that the real agenda of " right-to-lifers " may lie in the control of women ' s lives and population control. Most women who recieve abortions are middle class whites, and it is a threat to the " white race " when there are not enough white children being born. Those who protest abortion said not a word against the massive forced sterilizations in the 70 ' s of Latina, Black, and Native American women, nor do they protest sterilization abuse in minority communities today. This practice continues through economic incentives for sterilization and use of Norplant, an implanted five-year contraceptive device. In fact, some " right-to-life " groups even finance and support sterilization abuse among low income and minority women. Futher evidence of a lack of concern for the fetus post-birth lies in the US ' s appalling infant mortality rates, due largely to substandard prenatal care. Not only do Black women die during pregnancy and childbirth at a rate three times greater than that of white women, but the infant mortality rate among Blacks is astronomically higher than among whites. Most of these deaths could be prevented through better prenatal care. Most women don ' t seek abortions out of a casual choice to remain chil- dless. We choose it as the only alternative in the face of hostile economic and social conditions. We need to make motherhood an economically viable option without social stigma or serious health risks. If abortion becomes illegal, we will only see rising numbers of women dead from illegal abortions. Women will not have full reproductive rights until we have real choices about if and when to have children, and are treated as respected and valued members of society regardless of our personal choices. Reprinted from Slingshot A 170 WOMEN ' S ISSUES leu oa um6 ( ' 06 oavi AoAic c ec ( a iS at y a yoa ' zem ?ze WOMEN ' S ISSUES 171 QUESTIONS TO PONDER The year is 1992 and sexual harrassment is at the forefront of the news. The nation faced a plethora of issues that caused controversy, heated political debate and re- consideration of the state of the women ' s movement. The Clarence Thomas-Anita Mill Hearings exemplified like no other event could the often deleterious relationship between men and women. Senator Danforth even theorized that perhaps Anita Mill was delusioned by a man in power and conjured up dreams of his sexual advancements to bolster her own image of herself. On the Senate panel were men and only men — one of which few could respect as a suitable judge of sexual harrassment — Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Massachusetts). The message that the hearings ultimately sent to women across the country: be ridiculed when you bring up charges of sexual harrassment, be ridiculed when you bring up the charges twenty years later. But consider that although 51% of the US population is female, not one woman holds office in the Senate of the United States. Further consider that women still make 58 cents on the man ' s dollar. Worse yet, in this election year when issues such as a woman ' s right to choose and national child care are prominent concerns for women, a woman may not win a Senate seat to effect positive changes. And then Vice-President Dan Quayle chastised television character Murphy Brown for deciding to have a child without a father. Me remarked that this decision symbolized the lack of morality in American families. Well Mr. Quayle, if America had the morality to provide child care, maternity leave to working families and universal health care for children then perhaps women would not be faced with such a difficult decision as to have a baby and support a baby and herself alone. But this is too simple for Quayle to realize. This year brought forth numerous questions for women to ponder. Could a woman have it all — baby and career? Was the US government and business willing to offer the support programs that would allow single parent families to thrive without encouraging such families? What will be the state of woman ' s right to choose in the year 1995 — the day after the Presidential elections? I hope someone has the right answers. — Andy Dong 172 WOMEN ' S ISSUES WOMEN ' S ISSUES 173 L« • ' » tm twy r.. 174 WOMEN ' S ISSCJES !«■ rrom Bait ara Boxer and Dlanne Felnsteln for the U.S. Senate, to Claudia McCormlck and Vivien Bronshvag for the state Assembly, a record- breaking 71 women were nominated for federal and state office In June 1992 ' s primary elections, and female politicians savored their moment " Its a great day to be a girl, " exulted state Treas- urer Kathle i Brown, viho is widely expected to be the next Democratic woman to run for governor.

I know, move into the co-opsi I chose Cloyne after I stumbled across a rather bizarre party there at which the band was outfitted in 8 foot tall card- board cutout hats and painted in flourescent designs. Ran- dom folks rolled around nude in garbage cans, and a couple people flickered the lights at odd intervals and yelled " Qo home! " Mo one paid any at- tention. " Me with furniture sculpture. " Couches and chairs are always a heated issue in Cloyne. At one point the Cloyne Renais ance Alliance decided it was time to buy new couches — clean, unlorn. self-supporting ones. The anti- couch brigade charged that buying new couches reeked of blind support for the rot- ting capitalist structure. We bought couches anyway. John, resident wiccan, shies away from dark magic.

Stage 1: on the platform- speckles of people 150 feet below- a bridge In the distance which the guide tells me to swan dive to- ward. Stage 2: The guide counts down, screaming (he says It ' s good Incentive If everyone on the ground hears him too) " 5-4-3-2-1- BUn- QEEIl! " But wait, I ' m still on the platformi I feel reborn, rejuvinated. No one can ever again accuse me of lacking courage, of not taking risks. Then again, all I did was throw my body out of a little cage 150 feet above the ocean — perhaps I ' m misinterpreting suicidal tendencies for inner conviction. Stage 3: After 5 maddening count- downs, 1 fling my- self off. My head fills with blood- wind tears at my eyes- the drop seems endless, frozen- my arms and the top of my head touch the ocean- then I ' m re- bounding and to- tally disoriented- flalling in all direc- tions. Finally I ' m just swinging by my feet, my arms outstretched Christ-like, as they reel me in over the mat. Turns out everyone on the ground {except my dad) had bet 1 wouldn ' t jump. TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE Hundreds were arrested in the Bay Area for protesting the LAPD cops ' acquittals. Cristen Martin, UCB student, tells her story LV: What did you think of the Rodney King verdict? CM; I thought it was totally ridiculous. I didn ' t believe it at first, it vjas just so biatontiy white bureaucracy. Simi Valley is lil e white bread without the crust. But I ' m really an optimist so I thought " justice will prevail. " LV: Why did you decide to go on the march? CM: We had to do something. There ' s this feeling being a young person that you don ' t hove power, but with everyone congregated in Sproul, it made me feel that we really did have power. I wouldn ' t have gone if I thought it would be destructive. LV: How did the protest begin? CM: It started with maybe two thousand people listening to speai ers on Sproul, and turned into a peaceful march on City Hail. We stopped at the police station and then went down to the bridge. When we got to the bridge people were getting out of their cars and marching with us — that was really incredible. Once we got to the toll plaza it turned into a sit-down protest. LV: Do you think the protest had a positive effect? " The mayor came and spoke at the jail — she said, ' We ' re real- ly proud of you guys for standing up for what you think is right. ' I was kind of laughing. ..she was just sayin g what she needed to say in the public eye. If we did such a good job, why were we in jail? " — Cristen Martin world lectrified by the Rodney King non-verdict Interview Layout by Lara Vinnard CM: We stopped traffic — we got on the news. We mode more of o point by getting on the bridge; once we did there were helicopters and news people everywhere. I bet we made a good picture. LV: What were the police doing all this time? CM: When we were getting on the bridge the police were following us on motorcycles — when they ' d get close we ' d hop over the fences and they ' d have to go back to the off ramp and come around. By the time we got on the bridge we knew we ' d get arrested. We were barricaded in — it was pretty scary. About 50 cops surrounded us — they ' d move in end take out about ten people at a time to search and put the flex cuffs on. They didn ' t know how to do ' em so they put ' em on too tight on a lot of people and then refused to loosen them. One guy asked to have his loosened and the cops looked at each other and had an attitude like " The guy in the sweatshirt wants us to loosen his cuffs — well, he was rude to us so we ' re gonna retaliate — heh, heh, heh. " I don ' t know how legal that mass arrest was; they never gave us a warning. If they hod I might have left. It took about two hours to search everybody, then another 45 minutes to wait for the buses, then they loaded us up and took us to Santa Rita. Most people got their flex cuffs off on the buses, then once we got to the holding yard they took them off everybody else. It oil seemed really disorganized. It ' s about 7 or 8 at night now and we haven ' t had bathrooms or anything to eat or drink since noon — and no one at the jail was offering us any- thing. They took In groups five at a time and put us Into holding rooms of maybe 20 people, sep- arating the women and men. Finally there was a toilet and a drinking fountain. Some people had Walkmans so they kept us up- dated on the news about other riots — mostly we were Just bored and tired. Then they took us out of the holding ceils at about ten and frisked us again — I didn ' t see the point of that since they ' d already done it once. At this point they took our names and a mug shot, then they passed us from cell to cell and then started calling our names randomly. I got released I think around one a.m. — they brought you to a check-out room and gave you a court date, and then I hod to wait outside a few hours for a ride home. I guess we saw that at least we ' re not totally helpless; if we put everybody together at least we can do something. People saw us on the news and thought, " Wow, there are other people who are really willing to get arrested be- cause of this!

" That ' s my spot. Everyone knows it. " Moe, originally from Nome, Alaska, came to Berkeley In 1968 after serving in Vietnam. " I was there for two months, and then I got shot, I came here to fight against the University (of California) for People ' s Park. I wanted to fight for the people instead of the government. " A regular addition to Telegraph Avenue, Moe adds that " A lot of people come by ajid give me food. Most of the time I Just give it away though, ' cause I ' m already full. I ' ll give it to (other homeless) ' cause I don ' t want it — and I hate to waste food. " When asked who he would give money to (if the tables were turned), he replied that " I ' d give it to anyone, no matter what. That ' s the way I am. If they want to use it for beer, or for wine, or for drugs, I ' ll give it to them. That ' s the way I am. " Moe lives up to what he says, constantly sharing what little he has YTith other homeless. He hopes that other people will " care about each and every person who lives on the street — and if they can help them out, then help them out. " Robert sits In front of Bank of America with his puppy dog and a few belongings. Fairly young, Robert came to Berkeley from the Oakland Hills because of problems he was having with his parents. " A lot of my friends who had run away from home came out here, " he tells. Robert panhandles on Telegraph and sleeps on the sidewalk on Hillegass. He wants people to understand that " some homeless are nice people. " People shouldn ' t be afraid to talk to us — we ' re not Just going to get in their face or something. " He also advised people who aren ' t sure about who to give money to should " give money to the people who really need it — not to the people on drugs or crack- cocaine. Maybe someone with an animal. " Last, Robert would also like people to understand that they could be In a similar situation. " My parents had a lot of money in the bank. I ' m out here by choice, but this could happen to anyone. " Cinammon, who came by to visit Robert, is from Stockton, and is the mother of two children. She had not seen either of her children or her granddaughter for several years. Currently, she lives in a loft built between two warehouses. " We were living in a car, but the police made us move off the property it was parked on. " Cinnamon believes in sharing with others no matter what they do with It afterwards. " I used to keep extra blankets for newcomers who did not have one. " She shared that the worst part about being homeless was when it rained " ' cause your stuff gets wet, ' " and she feels a positive aspect Is " when it ' s a clear night out and I have all the stars above me.

In early April, the University began the seismic reno- vation and under- ground connec- tion of Doe Library and Moffit Undergraduate Li- brary. The construction was part of the Long Term De- velopment Plan. Other sites slated for construction in 1992 included Soda Hall, the new Electrical Engineer- ing and Computer Sciences building. The Student Health Services Building on Bancroft, and the completion of the Life Sciences building renovation. The closing of Moffit Library sent undergraduates scattering in search of a location to study late at night. Other campus libraries quickly initiated con- tingency plants to assist these students. Eshleman Library planned to stay open later in expectation of student demand. The closing would also inconvenience borrowing priveleges. A student would be required to page a book, like at Doe, but come back the next day to pick up the book. In the end, the completion of the construction would greatly im- prove the efficiency and safety of the main cam- pus libraries. 226 CLOSING CLOSING 227 PEOPLE PLACES PROFILES PEOPLE Now that I have fin- ished four years of Berkeley life, I have to smile about the first rime my Mother won- dered if I would re- turn from Berkeley af- ter one year with colored hair and ripped clothes. Though I must admit that I have prosely- tized to the Birken- stock generation, 1 still wear Levi ' s blue jeans and solid-color polo shirts. But on my way to the final day, 1 passed through just about every mode of Berke- ley dress imaginable. Stan with the drab brown corduroy jeans left over from the tilend of the high school years. Within days, those were thankfully donated to the Salvation Army. Then came the " ripped years " — ripped jeans, ripped shirts, shoes with holes in them, and a backpack held together by Scotch tape and safety pins. I thought that I should dress the " Berzerkeley " way, simple, non-pretentious and " 60 ' s-ish. " But the winter cold and rain convinced me that maybe the layered look, the one seen in Gap commercials or Eddie Bauer stores. I started looking like a fraternity brother which quickly put me into another scKial stratosphere, a vibrant party life and relations galore. My grades suffered and so did my p xkctb(X)k. TTic selling point that layering is the modern day Garanimals was seriously mistaken. FILES PEOPLE PLACES PROFILES I quickly ran through the ethnic look, the sweats phase and several others. I experimented with every type of dress or appearance I saw. And I ' m glad I did. By participating in Berkeley subcultures through by identify- ing with their unify- ing dress, I had the opportunity to partic- ipate in the cultures which thrive on this campus. 228 CLOSING 229 1 I .• f .

Michael Jones walks from his house on 81st Street to see what ' s left of his home. South Central Los Angeles. Birds trill loudly in the tall palm tree in his yard, somehow mak- ing themselves heard above the sound of occasional sirens and new helicopters in the sky. The air is beige and acrid. Smoke and steam curl from a three-block stretch of Vermont Avenue around the corner — 31 stores burned and gutted to blackened shells. An overwhelming show of military and police force brought a troubled peace to riot-torn Los Angeles as resi- dents cleaned up the wreck- age cause by three days of an- archic violence. " We will keep the troops here as long as it is necessary. " Governor Wilson said, as the death toll from the worst riot in U.S. history rose to at least 41. A force of 1,300 Marines and 500 soldiers was sent Into the city to sites near areas where the rioting was worst. Another 2.000 soldiers from Ford Ord re- mained at staging areas out- side the city. President Bush declared Los Angeles a disaster area. The designation created elibivility for several federal aid pro- grams, such as temporary housing and low-cost loans to cover uninsured property. Mayor Tom Bradley, who has strongly endorsed the show of force, said " great progress " had been mode in restoring quickly and with the least amount of force. Bradley named Peter Ueber- roth, former baseball commis- sioner and president of the 1984 summer Olumpic Games in Los Angeles, to head a res- toration effort called " Rebuild L.A. " " We ' re starting in the hole here. " said Ueberroth, who im- pressed the skeptics by build- ing the privately funded Olympics into a thumping fi- nancial success from scratch. Government will have to work with domestic and foreign businesses, private founda- tions, religious leaders and south central residents to re- build and create a local eco- nomic base that generates jobs. Ueberroth said. Ueberroth, a decisive admin- istrator who knows how to say no and make it stick said one of his operating rules as head of " rebuild L.A. " will be " don ' t re- ward any rioters. Don ' t reward looters. They ' ve looted thou- sands and thousands of job that won ' t be there tomorrow because there ' s no place to i go to work. " " Disturbance " was probably the mildest word anyone hod chosen to describe the riots that have caused more than 2,100 people to be injured, 211 critically, since the rioting be- gan after the acquittal of four white policemen accused in the videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King. Meanwhile, hundreds of peo- ple line up for a block outside the post office for their mail and their checks. People walk around the neighborhood with reporters from another town, who can only try to imagine what it is like to feel both the outrage of the King verdict and the horror of a neighborhood gone. This neighborhood was everything to kids who played tag on the street medians, bought candy at the stores and knew the merchants by name. Now. suddenly, their world has changed. 234 RODNEY KING The riots echoed a decades- )ld anguish of the dispos- essed. It was as though all the ;locks had been turned back a quarter of a century. Ironically, many black jour- lalists soy the media failed to :over the riots properly. Pon- jlists at an African American ournalists meeting com- )lained that the media cov- ered the violent aftermath as a ot instead of a rebellion. The predominantly white lews papers, television and ra- lio reporters ask the wrongs questions, use the wrong ad- Bctives and choose the wrong )eople to interview. " The media keep asking why protesters) are burning their ;ommunities. They should ask hy (protesters) don ' t feel they lod a stake in America, " said inda Williams, assistant busi- less editor of The Los Angeles imes. The south central neighbor- lood is plagued by gangs, Jrugs, poverty and frustration, lostly blacks and Hispanics live lere. It is the territory of the Hoods and the Crips. Black nen in this neighborhood ore he most likely to be murdered 1 America. " We let white people call it a riot, " said Ethel Long Scott, ex- ecutive director of the Wom- en ' s Economic Agenda in Oak- land. But ' Nt ' s a rebellion between classes of all colors, between the haves and have- nots. " But the spirit of the south cen- tral community seemed to sur- vive the rioting. Even though the stores where families shopped were embers, the gas and supermarkets more dis- tant, some new realities were weirdly comforting. Truckloads of white and black volunteers shouldered brooms, coming from all parts to help clean up the damage on the streets. And the gangs that have killed so many in their wars were, at least temporarily, at peace. Graffiti on a wall in Bloods territory read, " Kill KKK. Not Blood orCuzz. " What pictures the public and the world saw of California and the United States for that mat- ter. A black man being beaten and kicked to senselessness. A white man lying on the ground, bloodied, motionless, left to die. Many analysts remarked that the King beating and af- termath put a serious damper on the U.S. ' s ability to nego- tiate race relations in other eth- nic-torn countries such as Israel and South Africa. How can the U.S. force other ethnicities in other countries to live in peace when the U.S. can hardly find peace with its own citizens? Finally, the tourist industry feared a sharp drop in tourism to California as a result of the rioting. But this is the last of the worries of the region and the country. It was sad that things like this were hpapening in 1992. It was sad that a community would turn on itself, and destroy the banks, stores, supermarkets that were already so scarce in black neighborhoods. It was sad that innocent motorists had been bludgeoned on na- tional television. It was sad that the city of Los Angeles would ever turn to bleak anger and dark frustration. Sometimes though, the world needs these events to galva- nize action. The inner cities need our attention. Or else the melting pot that is the United States will surely boil over. — San Francisco Chronicle. Sun- day, May 3, 1992. KING RODNEY KING ,.« ■ ' t - .
