All righit rrvrvrd. •RING •US Completed in 1914, the Campanile (or Satner Tower, as it ' s officially called) is the quintessential symbol or the city and the University. Patterned after the campanile of Saint Mark ' s Plaza in Venice and designed by John Galen Howard, it was funded by Jane K. Sather at a price of $144,000. Though the space within the walls of the Bell Tower was ori nally planned as graduate stu- dent housing, SIX floors of the tower now hold over 50 tons of human, dinosaur, and animal bones, many from the La Brea Tar Pits in Southern California. The bells of the Campanile not only herald each hour, but also chime a ten-minute pro- gram thrice daily. Careful listeners might some- Umes discern an Elvis Presley tune. All told, there are 6 1 bells covering a tonal range of four octaves. The speedy elevator ride to the top is free with UC ID, and $.50 otherwise. This is truly bargain entertainment, and one of the few fringe benefits of that $4,000+ a year educa- tion. ir t ' r . ■ ♦ . s iv , . , -, - " 1? SURVIVOR ' S .ALE Its a place of learning and of changes. Learning to accept, to tolerate, and to defy a changing era of the 90 ' s. It ' s the University of California at Berkeley, U. S. of A. As a high school senior, I could never quite forget the glamour, yes, glamour of the prospect of going to Cal. Finally, 1 was an adult, introduced to the " secrets " of stardom, success, and scholarship at a public institution of perhaps the highest caliber. I came to Berkeley thinking I might leave with some of that prestige having rubbed off on myself Fully en- trenched in rigorous academia, 1 leamed about more than just Pareto efficiency. Park ' s assimilation the- ory, the three-part F.l.T. principle to healthful ex- ercise, or Cicero ' s rhetorical devices. 1 leamed about people, about events, about an innocent-sounding place known as Cal. As a freshman, my first impression of Cal was its enormity. Guided only by the 307-foot tall Campanile as a landmark, I struggled with my warped innate sense of direction as I found my way around campus. In due time, as I finally narrowed my specific in- terests, I underwent the rite of passage of becoming a declared major. Life has never been the same since. Best of all, my classes became centralized in one building rather than scattered about the four comers of campus. After three years, 1 could htRt N y Debbie Yuan otes from ' inside finally boast of my ability to go deftly through Dwindle Mall from one end to the other. Although 1 was only familiar with one or two routes, it was a start. The 90 ' s has been a decade of change. Just as buildings and empires rise and fall, people come and go. Gone was the bow-tied Chancellor Ira Heyman of the 80s as a new, smiley Chang-Lin Tien took his place, no longer was 1 awed by my first, ceremonious meeting with Chancellor Tien at the Freshman Ball, because now the friendly Chancellor could be seen as nearby as Sather Gate, listening to the tunes of the DC Men ' s Octet; at the YWCA, commending its social services; or even at Berkeley Bowl, picking fresh fruits. Buildings on campus, too, aren ' t as long-lived as the South Hall of 1873. I ' ve seen the green " Temporary " buildings, a remnant of World War 11 military barracks, finally live up to their name half a century later, as they ' re whisked away before my eyes. Moffitt Library was temporarily taken from us for seismic renovations and then resurrected this spring as per the University ' s " promise. " The front of Doe Library is now a huge gaping hole. The sterile, dusty Cowell hospital of yesteryear is now a glassy, teal Tang Center on Bancroft; Way. Finally, the Life Sciences Building was, still is, and always will be under reconstruction during my time. One of the most trying experiences has been deal- ing with the intricate machinations of Sproul Hall. After a few mishaps, I learned to verify immediately exactly which line I should be waiting in, lest (as once happened) I find out an hour-and- a-half later from a wickedly apologetic voice that I should have been in the next line. With the death of ACE and the birth of Tele-BEARS, I began to see less of Sproul Hall and its workers behind their glass windows. Instead, 1 found myself more often by the telephone. It ' s still hard to say whether I prefer real voices to computerized pseudo-sexy robotic ones. Then again, is there really much difference? Cal changed my apathetic political outlook and gave me a reason for voting — the 5% ASUC textbook discounts. This was how I started my participation in the democratic process, november 1992 was the pinnacle of my po- litical career. Warming up with the ASUC elections led to my ultimate stroll to the booths of the presidential primaries. Me an apathetic college student? Not! The most important skill Cal has taught me is leaming to appreciate the value of the dollar, and surviving on a student budget. In the throes of dramatic tuition hikes over the last three years, I ' ve seen the three-digit amount on the billing statement transform to four. Mo one can deny that the Berkeley ex- perience is a well-rounded one. It ' s about Nobel Laureates and Clinton appointees teaching and giving lectures on campus. Its about theological lessons from the steps of Sproul. It ' s about a struggle to emerge un- scathed from a brutal microcosm of the real and indifferent world. If a student can grad- uate from UC Berkeley, s he can first tell Mom and Dad, and then proclaim to the world, " Veni, Vidi, Vicl. I came, I saw, 1 conquered . . .

After the ROTC absorbed the Cadets, the band members asked the ASUC to sponsor a stu- dent-run band. On Nov. 25, 1922, the ASUC Band debuted. Just over a decade later, the Band played for the ground-breaking of the Golden Gate Bridge and the opening of the Bay Bridge, and marched in the 1938 Rose Bowl. The Cal Band adopted its high- stepping marching style in the 1950s. Recognized as a first-rate band, they were invited by the State Department to represent the Unit- ed Stales at the 1 958 World ' s Fair in Brussels, Belgium. The Band also followed the football team to the Rose Bowl in 1959. There were three major changes in the early ' 70s. First, the Cal Band got a new director, Robert O. Briggs (Cal Band ' 47- ' 50), who con- tinues to this day. Second, the Band moved to the sponsorship of the University, and third, wom- en were admit- ted as members for the first time. In 1991, the Cal Band received the Berkeley Citation, celebrating the lOOlh year of the University of California Marching Band. The Band has truly earned its well- deserved motto: " The Pride of Ca- lifornia. " — Erin Vidali Kathy Heilmann i »-• . J ;- to the nret-tJme vlattor, can1l|pKRhiB- Shocklno. maybe even frightening.

Wearing a red lumberjack shin. 36 year-old Daniel has all the rugged good looks of a well- traveled man behind a horse and a 10-gallon hat or perhaps of one in a Musk cologne ad. Only the bedroll at his feet and the red plastic cup he cradles in his hands give him away. Daniel has been out on the streets of Berkeley for over 10 months since he got laid off by his construction com- pany. A native of Oakland, Daniel is indeed a well-traveled man, hav- ing lived and worked in 40 stales before returning to California from Wisconsin. " Right now I ' m trying to file a claim for unem- ployment which my company has failed to recognize, " says Daniel. Life has not been easy for him, having been homeless on and off for the past 12 years. Having lost all his possessions and his apart- ment, Daniel now travels lightly with what little belongings re- main. Usually he makes doorways his bed and tries hard to " stay in a place where no one can see (him). " He fears not police but violence itself. According to Daniel, the hardest thing about living on the streets is staying safe from the vi- olence all around, especially on Telegraph Avenue. Despite this, he doesn ' t go to shelters because they ' re always full, and the max- imum length of stay is only 15 days. Besides keeping safe, Daniel says that keeping clean is also his priority. He smiles, stroking his week-old beard. VJow, Daniel makes frequent trfts to the unemployment agen- c " I ' m trying lo find a job, but in lis meantime I can only live off of p handling. " However, the cur- rait budget crisis at UC Berkeley lexl, layout and photos by Debbie Yuan has affected not only stu- dents but also the h o m e- less, ob- serve s Daniel . " Since the budget cut, students have been tight on money and have given less than before. " Crouching beside Daniel for a few more minutes, I silently watch an incessant fiurry of legs swish past us. 1 reflect on the preconceived image of a " dangerous, dirty, lazy, drunken bum " and that of a homeless per- son, an image that all too often has been interchanged as one and the same. Just like the rest of the bustling passersby, life has to go on for Daniel. But for now, it is also a time of waiting. For help. For hof)e. For a home. 1 volleyballs, machetes, and riots How could it come to this? by Jeni Ternstrom J he University added another chapter to the on-going story of People ' s Park in February when it paved the park ' s basketball courts, a move welcomed by bas- ketball players and denounced by park activists, who saw the action as another power-play by the Uni- versity. Controversy over the plot of land between Dwight and Haste streets has brewed since 1969, when the University ' s plans to de- velop the land sparked violent pro- tests from " counter culture " fol- lowers who envisioned the park as a gathering place for the commu- nity, a " People ' s Park. " After a year or more of tension, threats, and protests, the University backed down, and the park remained relatively quiet for the next 20 years, drawing a steady crowd of the homeless and the gen- erally laid-back. The next major flap over the park arose in the summer ofl 99 1 , when the University okayed the construction of sand volleyball courts on part of the property, touching off a round of protests reminiscent of those two decades before, complete with riots and looting. Under police guard the courts were completed, but disgruntled park residents and supporters continued to heckle those who chose to play volleyball in the park with unflattering posters and epithets. Twice, barefoot volleyball players found the sand laced with broken glass, as the park again became the stage for a power struggle between the University and those who see the school as an outpost of privilege and bureaucracy that ignores the issues of the homeless and the community around it. Thus it was with some surprise that the city installed the basketball courts in March 1992 with relatively little protest, as residents and park activists simply observed the proceedings. In a bizarre and sad turn of events, park activist Rosebud Denovo, 18, broke into Chancellor Tien ' s home on the night of August 28, carrying a machete and a note declaring that she and other park supporters were willing to die to end construction at the park. After Tien and his wife were evacuated from the house, police shot and killed Denovo in the second floor bathroom. The killing sparked days of rioting on Telegraph as the fall semester be n. The conflict had died down by February 1 993, how- ever; resurfacing of the basketball courts went smoothly. Tensions, though, could easily flare up again in the future. People ' s Park has proven over the course of its existence to be an extremely volatile issue. Neither the City of Berkeley nor the University has any plans for further construction in the park in the immediate future.

Which cafe has the best cappucino? Where can you find a bianca mocha? Do you tip the guys who bus the tables? Is it proper to share a table when the cafe is crowded? What ' s the difference between cafe latt ' e and cafe au lait? Which cafe has the best bathroom graf fiti? What ' s the scene like at Milano, Strada, and Bottega? Cafis are probably better than bars for meeting people in Berkeley. A few knowing glances across a foamy latt ' e could lead to a heady conversation on anything from the imminent self-destruction of capitalism to the best place to buy fresh fruit in Provence. They ' re also the best spot for eavesdropping — with the tables so close together, no one would even notice if you leaned in a bit closer and took notes for your next short story. Here are a few tips for the uninitiated: sharing tables is expected when space gets short; a latt ' e has espresso and steamed milk, white " cafe au lait " just means " coffee withmilk.

Whether you ' re searching for an out-of- print collection of Goya ' s paint- ings of war (try Moe ' s), a handbook on psychedelic herbs (Cody ' s), or a collection of Poe ' s short stories (Hunolt ' s), you ' re sure to find it somewhere. Best of all, no one minds if you tug a book off the shelf, plop down on the floor, and read it cover to cover (as long as you ' re not blocking an aisle). 23 I . : ow about Thai food? A ' falafel? A burrito? Or maybe a huge, round platter of Ethiopian de- lights? Berl eley ' s multicul- turalism extends far beyond Its student body; you can find food from almost any corner of the world within walking distance of campus. From the delectably cheap to the in- sanely pricey, a meal for nearly every palate and pocketbook can be found with a little searching and some advice from friends. There ' s Chez Panisse, thought to be the originator of " California Cuisine, " where a plate can go for $60 and up.

I look back at the golden year I made my decision and wonder how on earth I chose, of all places, Berkeley. Why not Harvard? (I would had I been accepted.) Or how about Stanford? (Why pay $16,000 when I could get it for less?) What became of UCLA? (The campus was an unimpres- sionable blur the size of Texas.) Ahhh, Berkeley. Hazy memories of my first visit long ago come flooding back. The green, eroding Sather Gate. The zippy ride up the towering Cam- panile. The elegant curves of the marble steps leading to Doe Library. Perhaps best of all. . .piping hot Blondie ' s Pizza. The choice was a simple one of sheer economics — Berkeley is a bargain. In fact, little did I know as a naive freshman back in 1990 that I would be get- ting far more than I bargained for at Berkeley — in education I can ' t say, but in nearly everything else. As my parents (and now the Regents) constantly remind me that Berkeley is the cheapest school on the West Coast in exchange for quality education at a prestigious university, I ' d like to say, " Wr-r-o- ong Dad! Can I have more allowance? " Instead, in exchange for more than double the tuition since my first year, there have been tremen- dous cuts in basic services like the use of our undergraduate library and the reduction in must-have courses like Spanish 1 and 2 from 12 sections to a rock-bottom low of just 4 sections. I do grudgingly admit that one does get the benefit of the " broad education " as promised in the university bulletin and virtually every other piece of university propaganda. In reality, we ' re practically forced to take classes outside our intended studies since we aren ' t able 1 get into classes in our ma- jor until maybe the • ' y .y a EXCELLENCE AMIDST ADVERSITY V ' oo o U o CO UNDERGRADUATE FEES 1993-94 $4,039.00 1992-93 3,280.00 1991-92 2,678.50 1990-91 1,640.00 1989-90 1,570.00 1988-89 1,530.00 semester of our senior year. Here ' s more on education: being a college student means having the choice of going to and skipping classes at will. So, what happens when bomb threats, striking T.A. ' s, and cancelled classes make that choice for us? When we ' re deprived of our full education time, does that mean we get a partial refund? Remember that it was Cal ' s lovely architecture which was partially responsible for luring me here? Well, gone are the majestic stone steps to Doe Library and the sparkling water in campus ponds. Now, the campus looks more like the excavation site at an archeological ruin, with cranes and bulldozers converging on pathways where students can no longer tread, and endless wire fencing cordoning off the heart of campus. They ' re building the what? The day I started college was the day I finally left the sheltered world of Mommy and Daddy. At last I had entered the real world, where a greater challenge than academic competition was fighting to survive the ugliness and crime that 1 thought existed only in the movies. Living in the real world meant feeling stone cold to the plight of the homeless, staying bolted indoors on u z LU o Ll_ o I— LU riot nights, and shrugging off the mur- der of a neighbor with a certain survivalist apathy. It also meant the sudden interest in taking judo and taekwondo classes. Welcome to Collegetown, USA. With all these unexpected bonuses, could things get even better? Absolutely. Only in Berkeley can you get free entertainment on the side, everything from topless people, bottomless people, to noth- ing-at-all people just waiting to be noticed, and you don ' t have to spend a fortune in X-rated clubs. After the first few years have passed, most stu- dents begin to realize that the only constancy on this campus, and the only things we really live for, are the players in our own " Berkeley Carnival. " Take a stroll on campus and stop to hear free religious anti-religious " lectures; " enjoy a spell- binding act of juggling fire torches or a Houdini straight-jacket escape; listen to a certain green purple-haired man cackle away on every subject imaginable. And don ' t forget all the unexpected afternoon musical interludes — depending on your mood, you can take your pick of jazz, marimba, bucket drumming, and even soon-to-be-famous local rock bands. For only $1655.75 per semester (that ' s $22.08 per day, and rising fast) what a bar- gain! Text by Dobbio Yuan Layout by Lara Vinnard I I Planning protesU, writing pol- icies, and meeting with the UC President are just a mere sam- pling of what goes with the package for ASUC President Margaret For- tune. Having been involved with the ASUC government since her freshman year, Fortune was chosen by her peers two years later to un- dertake the university ' s highest stu- dent leadership position in a year that saw numerous calls for a rep- resentative student voice. Since Fortune took office, her pri- orities have been " promoting qual- ity in the institution, curriculum, and faculty. " Also top on her agenda has been " leveling the plane of equality among people of color. " Currently, Fortune is working on creating and pushing for a state leg- islative bill that would attempt to attract more underrepresented teachers to the math and science fields at the high school and college levels. Looking back at her term, the 21- year-old junior sees her responsive- ness to students as a primary pos- itive aspect. " Berkeley is a podium by which to speak to the world but (it) has been criticized as having dormancy on campus, " said For- tune. " As one of my challenges, I ' m hoping to awaken students because we have the potential to mold social change. " According to Fortune, her biggest accomplishment was leading 1,000 students to the 580 freeway in the Rodney King protest. " That has been symbolically Important to By Debbie Yuan me, " she recalled. Fortune has also worked extensively on gay and lesbian issues as well as organizing the Women ' s Empowerment conference that kicked off the " Year of the Woman. " In addition, she has devoted her energies at the graduate level in issues concerning fac- ulty diversification at Boalt School of Law, women and sexual harassment in the School of Architecture, and in the GSI strike. " This is one aspect that graduate students don ' t realize, " said Fortune. " I ' m also working as their representative. " Despite the many accomplished goals on her agenda, Fortun said that the biggest setbacks to carrying out various progressive policies have been university bureaucracy and the constant power struggle in the ASUC Senate. According to Fortune, as a female minority she often has to battle it out on the Senate floor with Its predominately white, conservative males. Howev ' er, she addressed the fact that she ii not another self-interest group bui is working for all students. What has resulted from all thli Involvement with student govern ' ment? " I ' ve learned there ' s a uni ' versal value to equality, " said For tune. " This has come down as i guiding philosophy that has motl ' vated me to do what I am doing. I ' ve learned that students have the po- tential to effect change if we mo- bilize through research, building coalitions across ethnic, gender, and sexuality lines, and acting collec- tively. " Fortune, who intends to ma)or ii Political Science and minor in Af- rican American Studies, takes oi her post as " more than a full time job, " according to Stacey Llttlejohn her chief of staff. The ASUC pres- ident admitted that she practically makes Eshleman Hall her second home. However, for the young futur« leader who aspires to attend Prince- ton Univeraity ' s Woodrow WllsoB Public Policy Program right aftei graduation, schoolwork still takei precedence. " It ' s definitely impor- tant to balance with academics sometimes, I have to choose to tun down ASUC-related functions ovei schoolwork, " said Fortune. " I need loU of discipline, but the ASUC ij an excellent academic tool. " PRP inPNT speaking out on the Naked Guy. Rosebud, and the GSl strike CHANC||.LOR c ,y or a man whose dream in life was to become a pro- " -— :y fessional basketball player, becoming instead the head , y of a highly respected academic institution — the Uni- versity of California, Berkeley — has not been a bad bbstitute for Chang-Lin Tien, Cal ' s Chancellor extraordinaire. , Chancellor Tien has been associated with the university for over iO years. He was first hired as a faculty member of the engineering yepartment just after he completed his Ph.D at Princeton Uni- fersity, and subsequently worked his way to Chancellor, a post he as held for the last three years. i When describing what makes Berkeley such a unique and pro- ressive setting. Dr. Tien mentioned such things as the great level of jversity on campus, made possibly by Cal ' s open access policy, as tell as Berkeley ' s reputation for academic excellence across the board. By the same token though. Dr. Tien echoes the nation ' s newest President in speaking of the need for change and enhancement of excellence. On his first day as Chancellor, Dr. Tien initiated four major goals including the enhancement and mainte nance of academic and faculty excellence, the maintenance of a diverse campus and the improvement of the campus atmosphere, the up- grading of undergraduate education, and tfie institution of a greater community outreach program. In addition to these long-term goals. Chancellor Tien keeps busy with his day-to-day responsibilities which include the management of the affairs of Cal ' s 21,000 faculty mem- bers, and 1,800 staff members. But even with all this responsibility. Chancellor Tien ' s only major complaint is the enormous amount of paperwork he has to deal with. On the flip side. Dr. Tien cites the interaction with the Berkeley community as his favorite part of the job. It is not unusual to see him frequenting football and basketball games, cheering at rallies, strolling about campus, or even dining at the local dorm cafeterias. Many believe that is it this enthusiastic involvement in campus activities which epitomizes Dr. Tien ' s unique contribution to the Berkeley community. Yet, with such a high-profile position. Chancellor Tien has his share of obstacles to confront. Throughout the academic year, he has had to deal with such issues as the fee increase, the Naked Guy, Rosebud, and GSl strike, and Tele-Bears, and has handled each with characteristic restraint and aplomb. Chancellor Tien is vocal yet tactful in addressing these issues. With regard to the GSl strike. Chancellor Tien defended the uni- versity ' s declared inability to offer collective bargaining rights to the graduate student instructors. He sympa- thized with the plight of both the GSIs as well as the undergraduate students caught in the middle of the conflict, who he called the " innocent victims. " In the case of the death of People ' s Park activist Rosebud Denovo, Dr Tien expressed remorse about the fate of the " uninvited guest who came into (his) house on the first day of the academic year " And, in dealing with Berkeley ' s in- famous " Naked Guy, " Chancellor Tien ex- plained that though he tried to accomodate the expressive (former) student, even meet- ing with him on several occasions (but, as he explained lightheartedly, they were " not photographed together " ), it was to no aval). Whether or not one agrees with Chan- cellor Tien ' s rationale or management style, it is undeniable that he is sincere in his efforts to keep Cal on the " cutting edge of excellence. " It is in this that he takes most pride, and for which he is most respected. As his cartooned appearance on local " Tien and Hobbes " t shirts suggest, he is not only well respected by students, but well liked, and is increasingly considered an unoffic ial Cal mascot by LabonI Hoq Photo by Ethan Janson 31 The NAKED Andrru ' Marttnfz, aJLa. thi Sakfd Guy, flfxn hu pecs for an audimce which u more interetlrd in the afUmoon ' i guitoTut.

Bumping around on the coost of a continent as yet un- known to European travellers, a Span- lard named Columbus happened across a lovely stretch of land and claimed It for his Queen. Just one slight problem: that land was someone else ' s home. Such was the Introduction of modem culture to the Western Henrv Isphere. 500 years to the day later, descendents of the vanquished and their conquerors, as well as of later ar- rivals to the continent, gathered In Sproul Plaza to challenge the notion ttKit Columbus was a hero, and to re- mind spectators that he was actually quite lost when he " discovered " the " New World. " The " 500 Years of Resistance " Rally, held In solidarity with demonstrations A controversial legacy i throughout the Boy Area, consisted of skits, speal ers, and the Indian Rap Group " Without Reservation, " all united under one theme: Columbus was lost. Debra Reed, a participant in the rally, felt that the main goal of their efforts was, " truth in history. There ' s another story to who Christopher Columbus was. " For many, Columbus himself was not truly the issue; rather, he now serves as a symbol of worldwide European domination of non-white peo- ples. " I think Columbus would probably be happy that his " discovery " was controversial. I don ' t think he ' s the sole person responsible; he ' s more of an icon.

The strike, which was scheduled to begin Tues- day, Movember 17, but post- poned for 48 hours as a con- cession to the University, be- gan full-scale on a rainy Thursday two days later. The decision to strike followed weeks of at- tempted nego- tiations which ultimately failed to facil- itate a compro- mise. AQSEs main demand was for rein- statement of their previous- ly-held right to b a r- gain as a union. The Uni- versity, however, citing a state ruling which said. In effect, that they were not required to recognize AQSE as a union, twisted this into a justification for their InabllUy to award AQSE union status. Undaunted, AQSE members barred virtually every entryway to campus, encouraging drivers to honk and students to join their march. The strike stretched into finals, far longer than anticipated, and ultimately, by necessity, prevented few from enter ing campus. UMC I»MT The absence of QSl ' s and TAs was certainly felt in class. Across campus, final papers were cancelled and IP (In Progress) grades had to be given. In one positive turn of events, the College of Letters and Science passed a blanket decree that students could file to take any class Pass riot Pass up to and including the day of finals. I ' Avy Ulti- mately, the November strike fiz- zled to an end. Though there was talk of a second strike be- ginning with the spring semes- ter, AQSE instead followed less confrontational means of realizing their goals. Success was achieved in May, when a majority of Cal readers and tu- tors voted to designate AQSE as their collective bargaining representative, thereby forc- ing the university to recognize the union as the graduate stu- dents representative begin- ning June 2. agse 43 I Ten Years After. . . The 1982 " Biggest Game " will go down in history for The Play. Coach Joe Kapp led the Bears into the Big Game with a 6-4 record. Stanford, quarterbacked by AU-American John ' Elway, looked like tough competition. At halftime, Cal took a 10-0 ead into the locker room, but Stanford came back in the third quarter to take a 14-10 lead. The Bears had surged ahead to 19-14, when disaster seemed to strike. A Cardinal drive ending with a field goal brought the score to 19-17. With its offense dead-ended, Cal punted to leave Stanford on its own 20 yard line with 1:27 left on the clock. Several big gains brought Stanford to the Cal 18 yard line, within reach of the game-winning field goal. It was here that Elway made what was possibly the biggest mistake of his college career. He called a time-out to give Mark Harmon, the place kicker, time to set up his kick. Immediately, he realized he had left eight seconds on the clock. After Harmon nailed the kick, however, it looked like it wouldn ' t matter; the score was 20-19, and all Stan- ford had to do was prevent a score on the return. Harmon squibbed the kick-off to prevent a return, and the Stanford team and fans went wild, assuming the game was firmly in their hands. But. . . Cal player Kevin Moen scooped up the ball at Cal ' s 43 yard line. He started upfield, then threw a lateral pass to Richard Rogers, who immediately tossed the ball to Dwight Garner at Stanford ' s 44. While being tackled. Garner flipped the ball back to Rogers at midfield. At the Cardinal 45, Rogers pitched the ball to Mariet Ford. Ford ran to Stanford ' s 25, where he was about to be hit, when he blindly tossed the ball backwards . . . and into the hands of Moen. (There are some Cal fans who still get chills upon hearing this sequence.! Stanfordites, assuming the game was over, were spilling onto the field. Moen sped 20 yards through Stanford ' s confused fans, players and band into the end zone, bowling over an over-eager Stanford trombone player in the process. The final score: Cal 25, Stanford 20. Joe Starkey, the announcer calling the game that day, called it " the most amazing, heart-rending, sensational fin- ish in the history of college football. " Loyal Californians will never forget that kick-off return; John Elway still won ' t discuss it. By Jenl Ternstrom 46 5l ; T G ive ' em the axe, the axe, the axe! " yells the feisty octogenarian on the steps of Sproul HaU. This is Natalie Cohen (Cal, 1934), help- ing to build school spirit for the Big Game with the limb-waving, e e-popping axe yell that belies her 80 years. Cohen, along with Mic-Man Ken Montgomery and Chancellor Chang-Lin " Go Bears! " Tien, kicked off this year ' s Big Game Week with a noon rally on Sproul Plaza. This year ' s Big Game festivities celebrated not only the long-standing rivalry between Cal and Stanford, but also the 100th anniversary of the first Big Game and the 1 0th anniversary of The Play, the stunning four-player, five-lateral finish to 1 982 s Big Game. Other Big Game Week activities included the " Get the Red Out " blood drive sponsored by the Alameda- Contra Costa County Blood Bank; the Cal-Stanford Sing-off; and the " Laugh Your Axe Off IT " comedy night in Zellerbach Hall, hosted by Cal alum and national comedian Bob Sarlatte. The day before the game, Blue and Gold Day, went on despite the AGSE strike, and ended with a Bonfire Rally at the Greek Theater, sponsored by the Rally Committee. At the rally, amid cries of " Freshmen more wood! " and arcing rolls of toilet paper, the Cal Band, the Mic-Man, and the unstoppable Cohen urged the crowd on in its spirited support. The foot- ball team also made an appearance, with offensive Lineman Sam Sagapolu impersonating the absent Chancellor Tien. Despite the victories of Cal ' s ice hockey and water polo teams (among others) over Stanford ' s, despite the hype and the hopes, Cal lost the 95th Big Game to Stanford, 21-41, on November 21 . For some fans, the highlight of the game seemed to be the halftime show — the Cal Band re-enacting the Play — and iWeshow: two enraged (and intoxicated) Cal fans tackling and destroying the bug-eyed Stan- ford tree before security people dragged them off amid a shower of fruit from the Cal stands. In the spirit of Natalie Cohen, who hasn ' t missed a Big Game in 19 years, Cal fans know that if we keep on trying, we tvill get the Axe back.

Here, an interview ivith Frank IVinton. chosen the as neiv head yell leader. Q: VVhv did vou want to be the Mic- Man? ■ A: Nothing beats a crowd that is just totally hyped. Being a for- mer player. 1 Know how impor- tant it is to have the crowd De- hind you. It makes it a lot more fun for the players and the fans. Q: How did you find out about and try out for Mic- Man? A: I saw an ad in the paper. I tried out. They gave me an interview and a test on the mike. Four or five of us tried out. It went really well. They Eretty much said who would e Mic-Man at that point. But later they decided they wanted to use everybody, as a sort of yell-leading group. Q: Do you think, in general, that there should be an individual Mic-Man or a group of yell leaders? A: They need others to go to the other functions. A lot don ' t get much attention, like women ' s sports and non-revenue-making sports. They need people to help keep the crowd up, and to show support for everybody, not just football and men ' s sports. At football games, though, they really need one solid person; that ' s an integral part of getting tne crowd going. A lot of people will identify with just one person with a - -KT TT- ' T strong personality, who can lead ROLL ON YOl ' hat crowd. It can be a lough crowd. Q: What does the crowd respond to best? A: Other than winning? I like " hey alumni — go bears " and " give me a C, give me an A, give me an L, Cal, Cal. " Basically yelling, making a whole lot of noise when the other team is on offense. Q: What do you like the most about the job of Mic-Man? A: Being able to represent the school in some extracurricular aspect. I love be- ing in front of the crowd and getting everybody loud. It ' s always fun to go all over tne country and see so many Cal fans show up. We ' ve got the great- est group of alumni. Anywhere in the country, if there ' s a Cal game, they ' ll ho there. Q: What do you dislike about the job? A: I hate losing. I hate having to deal with Stanford people. They point you out, get in your face. People who show no respect for our school. I don ' t like fair weather fans, who support the team only when we win. Everyone needs to back us up, all the time. There are a lot of fans that do. The more people we have like that, the better.

Hey. we have homeless Pulitzer Prize winners wearing silky underwear and screaming obscenities at oblivious evangelists, students exercising their First Amendment rights to strip bare, and pet pigs trotting about campus. If there ' s anything that does turn our heads, however, it ' s something that may seem pretty com- monplace on a university campus .... The campus tour group. Early one Monday morning. I call up the Visitor ' s Center at University Hall and find out that a tour is to be conducted at one o ' clock that afternoon. On the way to the meeting place (101 University Hall) I pass through Sproul Plaza, where the " 500 Years of Resistance " rally is going full force. I wonder what the tour group that passed through Sproul on the day of the infamous Nude-ln might have thought. I join the expedition a little late, and we start off on the west side of campus. Our leader, Amanda Soils, a senior in sociology, explains that this side of campus is pretty tame compared to the south side, where " the campus community interacts with the city community. " Of course, this means that this is where students hang out with the Red Ribbon Man and watch the Hate Man heckle Y ' Shua Dave with a torn paper cup for a megaphone. Armida is quite adept at walking backwards; she points out the finer aspects of campus while expertly navigating herself in reverse around such perils as construction ditches and the mysterious steam vent grilles. We walk through Doe and moke plenty of noise for all those studying. The bookworms eye us coldly as we are told about a bible covered in human flesh that is available in Bancroft Library. We make our way to the Campanile, where the poor visitors are sucked out of fifty cents to ride the elevator of doom ( " You know, we r eally aren ' t supposed to hove more than eight people in here, ' cause the cable will snap and we ' ll all fall . . . but that ' s okay . . . we ' ll risk it! " ) From the elevator, we climb thirty-six steps to a view of fog-covered San Francisco, and a bird ' s-eye view of campus. As we reflect on the scenic beauty around us. the bells kindly remind us of the time with two deafening gongs. I talk to one of the members of the tour group. Amber, a high school senior from New York, who is a prospective Col student. She asks me a deluge of questions on everything from admissions policies to how to get on party guest lists. Her father, Oliver, critiques the tour, comparing it to the one given at the University of Michigan. " Here, the tour is much more geared toward academics, while at Michigan all they talked about was how much this building cost and how nice football was. " were Oliver ' s remarks; thumbs up from Dad. Dad is also Impressed with Col ' s Greek system, but Daughter is more interested in Berkeley ' s diversity and liberalism I was disappointed to see that the rally was over by the time we got to Sproul. but I ' m sure Col ' s political flavor showed through in the " UC Kills " and " F " the Police " stencils on the ground, along with the pretty rosebuds pointed next to them. Once the tour ended in MLK Jr.. we were handed questionnaires as to how we liked the tour. I was also Informed by Armida that the Visitor ' s Center is hiring next semester, and it pays nicely. Hey. for eight bucks an hour, I guess I could learn to walk back- wards, too! by Christopher Brown al and the Ballot Box by Christopher Brown November 2, 1992. The air is thick with anxiety in Sproul Plaza. It ' s past " rush hour " — around threeish. They ' re out there, the Cal Dem- ocrats, the Perot support- ers, even a couple of so- cialists and Libertarians stirring in the pot. An ab- sence of the Berkeley College Republicans is noted. Given: Clinton is ahead in the polls, way ahead. Perot has been on TV more times than anyone can count in the last week, garnering increas- ing support as his info- mercials sweep the Neil- sen ratings. Bush is be- hind, way behind, but of course, he is the incum- bent. For all anyone knows, it ' s still up in the air. Providing public assis- tance in helping voters find their polling places are the Cal Democrats, who also give out " Clinton, Feinstein, Box- er " posters in order to in- struct their clients as to who to vote for once they find their ballot boxes. The table is run by a solo volunteer, Karen Chang, greeting all comers. Dem- ocrat or otherwise, and flipping through maps and binders to direct her visitors to the correct vot- ing places. You live on Berkeley Way? Go to the Fire Station. Not surpris- ingly, Karen is voting for Clinton: " I wouldn ' t say he ' s the best ... I shouldn ' t be saying this! Put it this way, I ' m voting against Bush. " Karen ' s not alone in her fear of Bush continuing his reign as president. At the Pilipino Academic Support Services (PASS) table, an anti-Bush coali- tion is present. Art is a registered Republican, but is supporting Clinton. " Every certain number of years there has to be a Democrat in office to screw things up, " Art says to the groans of his friends. Lynn Sanduc also supports Clinton, but not on the same terms. " I ' d be depressed if Clinton lost, but it depends on who wins: if Bush does, I ' ll be disappointed, but Perot is my second choice. " The others prefer Perot as their first choice. Kirk Montez says that Perot is the best man to solve the nation ' s economic prob- lems. " He ' s got almost no chance of winning, " says Kirk, " you ' ve gotta be re- alistic. " Some people refuse to agree with Kirk, howev- er, especially the people at the Cal for Perot table. Does Ross have a chance? " Sure, he does, " says a flyer-distributing Perot supporter, " people just have to vote with their hearts. " Perot supporters were disappointed when Ross dropped out of the race, " but we knew that he had something planned when he told us supporters to hold on. " The volunteers did hold on, it seems, and even the Hate Man joined the bandwagon as he sports a Perot bumper sticker while heckling Y ' Shua Dave. Again, the Republicans are nowhere to be seen. Perhaps they went into hiding, fearing the worst. And the worst, for the Republicans anyway, is yet to come. November 3, 1992 The lines for the poll- ing place at the Unit III residence halls gradually lengthen as the clock ticks down. Students line up in pocket-sized groups as the sun shines, but come nightfall, the lines are protracted outdoors. The returns are starling to be televised upstairs. Some of the voters either didn ' t turn on the boob tube before they came down or else they were watching the Fox net- work ' s sit-com festival (hosted by none other than lason Priestley!!!) and decided to cast their ballots during the break. 50 election ' 92 Rumors are spreading, however, that Clinton is ahead, but to what degree he is winning is not known among the televi- sion-deprived. Among those who have heard these rumors are Dan Chyu, Ed Moneda, and Kai Lee, a group of friends who have come down to vote together. Dan and Kai, both freshmen, are happy to hear that Clin- ton is ahead, and are ready to vote for him. Dan, a Bush supporter, is disappointed at the news. He says he ' ll vote any- way, but he ' s also very sure that Bush doesn ' t have a chance. He knows, however, that his vote on state and local issues is still of great importance. The sample ballot mailed to each voter in- cludes the different state and local initiatives as well as the candidates for Congress and local of- fices. Many find the num- ber of items to vote on overwhelming. Eli Lieberman hasn ' t really studied the sample ballot, " but I ' m not going to vote on any measures I don ' t know anything about. " Eli, a fifth year senior, is a more experienced voter than most of his dorm- mates. " This is my first time voting in a presiden- tial election, though, " says Eli, " I missed the last one by three days be- cause of my birthday. " Voting has become quite fashionable among student voters. Perhaps the " Rock the Vote " PSA ' s and other youth- oriented propaganda has brought about a new at- titude among the newly- enfranchised young peo- ple. The question, " Have you voted yet? " is heard all around as the subject of small talk, the assump- tion being that the person questioned will vote soon enough if they haven ' t al- ready. Of course, there are those who can ' t help but say " no " to the ques- tion. Jackson Kuo, a first- year student, cannot vote because he isn ' t a US cit- izen. " If I could vote, I ' d vote Bush out of office, " says Jackson. Miranda Wang, on the other hand, is dis-enfranchised by circumstance. " I regis- tered in Los Angeles, but they never sent me my absentee ballot, " says Miranda as she fumes over the fact that she can ' t support her fellow Texan, George Bush, in his desperate struggle. Before the polls even close in California, Clin- ton wins by an avalanche. Even after this spread, the voters are still glued to the television to find out who ' ll win the con- gressional races and which initiatives look like they ' ll pass. Fein- stein seems to have beat out the threat of Sey- mour, but Herchensohn and Boxer are still neck- and-neck by the time many of the curious go to bed. In the morning, it ' s all over. No one talks much about the election; every- one knows who the win- ners and the losers are, so new information is passed along. No one bothers asking for whom their friends voted — the question is now moot. Once in a while you ' ll hear a frustrated Repub- lican wailing and proph- esying the imminent doom of the country un- der Clinton and the Dem- ocratic Congress. Other- wise, it ' s back to business as usual in Berkeley. Oops — sorry, I take that back. I just spotted a can- didate for the ASUC Sen- ate kissing somebody ' s backside. Will it ever end? " I woiildn ' t say he ' s the best ... I shOTildn ' t be saying this! Put It this way, I ' m voting against Bush. " - Clinton volunteer, Karen Chang election ' 92 51 al for Perot by JenI Ternstrom C. ' rammed in with the Cal Ski Club and the Chinese Student Association on busy Sproul Plaza, elbow-to- elbow with the Clinton-Gore card ta- ble, sits another red, white, and blue bedecked table. In the final pre- election flurry of late October, the two students working the table dis- cuss their candidate ' s platform and defend his record like any other campaigners. But these students are not the Cal Students for Clinton, Youth for Bush-Quayle, or even the perennial Peace and Freedom party. They represent, in their words, " a new way of thinking about politics. " They are Cal for Perot. Cal for Perot head Dawn Bycher, third-year student, has supported Perot since he first announced his candidacy last spring, when his presence and ideas in television in- terviews won her over. " I wasn ' t in- terested at all in the campaign before I saw Perot. " Bycher says. " But he started saying things that made sense. He seemed sincere, someone I could look up to and respect. " Like many young people. Bycher got caught up in the Ideas about which Perot preaches: unity, sim- plicity, a back-to-basics approach to politics. Perot is the kind of man who compares his hands-on strategy for reducing the deficit to " a mechanic who ' s under the hood, working on the engine. " Bycher also feels Perot cares more about the nation ' s youth than most candidates, another factor in garner- ing the support of younger voters. " He has kids our own age. " she says. " He cares about the future for our sake, about fixing the economy and the environment. He ' s not doing it lor himself — hell be dead by then. He ' s doing It for us. " Bycher was also drawn to Perot ' s stance as one outside the political system. " Perot has spilled the beans on politics, " she says. " He ' s telling the people what ' s going on. It ' s Im- portant that we know If we ' re being manipulated by the government. " She believes people are starting to ask more informed questions now about politics because of Perot ' s straight-shooting style, and that this change will remain regardless of the election ' s outcome. Despite the fervor of Perot ' s sup- porters, his campaign has not been without controversy. The biggest question mark, of course, was his announcement in June that he was withdrawing from the race (prompting some Perot supporters to switch their " Run, Ross, Run " bumper stickers to the front bumper) — and then his re-entry In Septem- ber. Perot has also been attacked for various comments ab out homosex- uals. Jews, affirmative action and other treadlng-on-eggshells fwlltlcal subjects. " He just says what ' s on his mind. " Bycher explains. " He ' s not an expert at dealing with the media, and they are purposely writing these things. Id say 90% of those things are in- correct — things were taken out of context, and f)eoplc got the wrong idea. " She reaffirms Perots stand that " we must learn to love eac other, or at least tolerate each otl er. " Perot ' s own responses to these ii cidents were phrased in his typicaL offbeat vernacular: " That ' s Just ai other one of those little Froot Loop things. " or the enigmatic. " Ninety nine percent of these stories are Jui elves floating across the celling. ' If nothing else, the feisty Tex£ billionaire ' s folksy expressions (th national debt, he said, is " like ti crazy aunt we keep down in tl- basement " ) have kept p)olitical pui dits busy, and political cartoonla everywhere thanked their gods fl his ears. Perhaps the person ha) piest about the Perot campaign, wl or lose, is Dana Carvey. who stavf busy on " Saturday Night Live " pla; ing both Perot and George Bus) even going so far as to play thei both in a debate. Bycher. however, sees more nob and far-reaching effects of the can paign. " If Perot wins, people wl start being interested in the worl ings of the government. " she pr diets. " They will want to be Involvt again. We need someone in tk White House that people can I proud of. ' ' A week before the election.

Socks, ready to take over the White House, what ' s an ardent Perot supporter to do? " We ' ll be political watchdogs during the Clinton ad- ministration, " Dawn Bycher asserts. She also remains firm on her stance that even if Perot doesn ' t maintain a direct role in American politics, his influence will linger. " A lot of the ideas Clinton ' s coming up with were Perot ' s, " Bycher explains. " I guess that ' s a compliment. What matters is that the ideas are being implement- ed. " Indeed, Perot announced In mid-January, shortly be- fore Clinton ' s inauguration, his kick-off for " United We Stand " , a non-profit watchdog group complete with its own 800 number. For a $ ' 15 donation, people can join the group, which will work on some of Perot ' s pet issues, such as the economy, government ethics, and health care. Perot, who plans to hit the talk show circuit again as he did during his campaign, insists that he is acting out of duty to his supporters, and could do without the national attention. This loyalty to his backers invokes a reciprocal re- sponse in those who worked for his election. Would Bycher vote for Perot if he were to run for the pres- idency again in 1996? " Sure would.

True, the four new female Senate members and the two incumbents probably won ' t tie up the washroom just yet, but even though the number seems small, they are the represent- atives of a new kind of political clout for wom- en. In a year when Hillary Clinton ' s homemaking skills became a cam- paign issue, when Illinois voters elected the first black woman to the U.S. Senate, and when even Barbara Bush hinted she might be pro-choice, women embraced an emphatic role in Amer- ican politics. The combination of in- gredients that brought about this shift are as straight-forward as Clin- ton ' s recipe for choco- late chip cookies: a growing concern for women ' s issues, espe- cially abortion rights and sexual harassment, com- bined with voters seek- ing change and the po- litical outsider. All told, there were 106 female candidates for the U.S. House of Rep- resentatives and eleven for Senate, symbolic of a significant shift in Amer- ican thinking (you know women ' s politics is a bo- na fide trend when IVIat- tel Issues a " Barbie for President " doll, even if this curvy plastic bane of feminists everywhere, 54 draped in a reversible red, white and blue ball gown, does seem somewhat iron- ic). But these women are no Barbie dolls; they are wom- en from varying back- grounds, many driven by last year ' s Clarence Thom- as-Anita Hill hearings, who realized that the only way to work for so-called " women ' s issues " — abor- tion rights, health care, pa- rental leave, sexual harass- ment — Is to have women making the decisions. Women voters respond- ed in unheard-of numbers: more people voted than ever, and 54% of them were female. The end re- sult is a Senate that ' s 6% female (it seems a small number, but that ' s three times the number of wom- en than there were before) and a House that ' s 11% fe- male (47 women in all, 24 of them newcomers). Many of these same fe- male voters also helped give Clinton the edge in the polls, OS they rejected a Republican party that re- mained firmly an- ti-obortion and even took to bashing t.v. ' s Murphy Brown for single mother- hood. California made history this November when it sent two wom- en to the Senate simultaneously, the first time this has ever hap- pened. Barbara Boxer and ex-San Francisco mayor Dianne Feinstein often campaigned to- sex, power cookies omen of the Nineties gether, holding hands and hugging like sisters, an ex- pression of emotion that most male politicians would never feel comfort- able performing. The First Ladies also got into the act this year, al- though Bush seemed more interested in being the sup- portive Grandma figure, while Clinton stirred contro- versy with her independ- ence and statements like, " I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, " when reporters questioned her career as a lawyer. In fact, one women ' s maga- zine even published both women ' s cookie recipies and had readers vote for one or the other. After all the Barbie dolls, the cartoons, Hillary Clin- ton ' s headband, and every other side issue that sprout- ed up in the campaign, the fact remains that women made gains in this election that their predecessors in politics had only dreamed of, and they don ' t seem to be stopping there. In a US News poll, 61% of the re- spondents said the country would be governed better if more women held office (Apr. 27, 1992) Women got the vote in 1919; in 1992 they got the votes. by Jeni Ternstrom DiA n G KOK S TOR ' 92 Barbara Bush ' s Recipe: 1 " T cop PIUS 2 toblespoor s sifted all-purpose flour Vi teaspoon baking soda % teaspoon salt % cup butter, softened Vi cup firmly packed brown sugor Vi cup white sugar 1 egg VA teaspoons very liot water % teaspoon vaniila extract 1 minute.

MEN ' S WATER POLO Cal water polo splashed and thrashed its way to its 11th NCAA title this year, the third year in a row they have won the national tournament.

They were challenged by a grueling road sched- ule, which forced them to play ten games on the road, five of them against top- 10 teams such as Hart- ford and Portland.

WHAT Webster ' s dictionary defines studying as " application of tlie mental faculties to the acquisition of knowledge. " Most people like to think of studying as a torture they must endure that robs them of their sleep. Where you study depends on where you live and who your roommates are. If you are one of the unfortunate souls who lives In someplsice out of " Animal House " , then you probably do most, If not all, of your studying In Doe or one of the other million libraries on campus. But libraries aren ' t the only plaices you can catch people try- ing to expand some brain cells; you constantly see people studying around cajnpus, sprawled on the grass or sitting on benches In the mid- afternoon sun. Studying In cafes Is also popular although you do have to question how much " studjrlng " actually gets done. Dorms are prob- ably the most common (because of all the people who live there), as well as the toughest, places to study — especially If one of your roommates likes to talk to her boyfriend every night for two hours while the other blasts MetaUlca and Quns ' n ' Roses. .J ti. Studying ing :i X HOW This depends on the Individual. Some people need abaolute quiet and others require cacophonous noise. Some study alone, some with others, some at desks, others (alone and together) on beds, and still others prefer distant locations like cafes or grassy spots. Diligent students review notes after every lecture, while those who cite the benefits of the " reoency-effeot " prefer to cram Just before mid terms and finals. 66 Studying WHO Wlio studies? Well, the answer Is everyone, whether they want to admit It or not. Face It, If you want to stay at CAL you have to study. If you don ' t study, then you won ' t be here very long. The people who study ever y night are few and far between. Most people Just don ' t titudy on Friday and Saturday nights, regeirdless of hat they ' d like their parents to think. Studying Is a V Job but we ' ve all got to do it. WHEN When you study depends again on where and with whom you live, as well as on how much you have to cram for the next day ' s midterm. The evening before a midterm or a final, stu- dents perform a popular sleep-deprivation rit- ual known in college vernacular as " pulling an aJl-nlghter " — which many feel is the most effective method of cramming as much Infor- mation into one ' s caffeine-soaked brain as pos- sible (especially when you have no other choice and you hope to pass the class). All-nighters, and night-time stud3rlng in general, follow a certain pattern: you need your essentials (see below), and enough distractions (such as food, friends and loved ones, and the premiere meth- od of procrastination — finding a room to clean or clothes to wash) to waste half your time. Of course your books and notes might eJso come in handy. WITH Perhaps the most Import nt elements are your essentials. You know, those talismans and substanoes that are absolutely neo- essary for effective studying — your favorite mechanical pencil, that soft chair by the radio, a bag of Reese ' s peanut butter cups, a bottomless pot of fresh-brewed Prench Roast — whatever It takes to keep you awake, focused (at least marginally), and able to survive until that 9 o ' clock exam.

The day I moved into Cloyne Court was the day I fell in love with the place. Cloyne Court Hotel (as it was originally called) was built as a three-floor hotel (plus a dungeon) in 1865 by John Galen Howard — the same architect who designed the Campanile — and boasts over W individual rooms, as well as spacious downstairs common areas, fine furniture and artwork, a hot tub (swim suits optional), and a lovely backyard garden. immediately felt at home lounging on a dusty hide-o-bed sofa with an arm missing. I loved the way I could, at any time, day or night, custom build any sofa as I liked with mismatched cushions from the twenty or so couches scattered about the main halls and t.v. rooms. If I found a cushion that I liked and somebody was sitting or eating on it, I politely asked them in my co-op kind of way, " Would you mind trading me this cute blue cushion for that brown cushion you ' re using? It ' s just . . . I ' ve become really ottatched to that cushion. " Nine times out of ten, the friendly co-oper will soy, " Sure, no problem. " The absolute best thing about the co-ops is the food. Although dinner is lacking sometimes and lunch Is leftover dinner, the chances that the breakfast cooks have gotten up, cooked some eggs and pancakes, and stirred up some frozen lemonade all for you has been pretty good this semester. If you don ' t like what ' s prepared, just cook your own food. Easy menu choices include frozen waffles, tater tots, or tasty trench fries cut with our very own trench fry cutter. Just don ' t take anybody ' s bag lunch! That sucks! Did I mention we have work-shifts? You see, nothing comes free in this world (unless of course your parents ! are rich and or generous). Everybody in the house glad- ly does five hours of work-shift per week so the house stays clean and things get fixed. Most jobs include cooking, maintenance, cleaning, gardening, and my personal favorite, pot wash, which is worth time-and- a-half. This is the co-op way: we own it, we run it, and we keep it tidy! • Parties at Cloyne are always exciting. Gang fights, brawls, broken gloss, and general mayhem punctuate the already-charged atmosphere created by such talented local bands as White Trash Debutantes, Rancid, Lawsuit, and Wazobia, the last of which highlighted Cloyne ' s 73rd Annual International Music Festival this past year. T.v, is a very popular sport here at Cloyne - almost as popular as foos ball and Super Nintendo (one of our three video game systems). We have two t v rooms for absolute viewing pleasure. The room we call the Chapel has a V.C.R. and a lovely mural of television watchers donating their brains to the Grim Reaper as they bow before the t.v , and this is where we watch movies like " Invocation of My Demon Brother " on Geek Social NIte. The other t.v. room is frequented by faithful viewers of weekly shows like " Scooby Doo " and " Taxi.

Packing your bags and heading off away from the mo- notony of suburUa; living communally wtth your peers wtth no parents to control you; sharing living space wtth a complete stranger who may not have the best bedside manner; and going to meals at 8p ecjfic times of the day yet quickly realizing that the food realty isn ' t worth your time — does tills all sound familiar? Or did you miss those wonderful camp experiences as a child? For the majoftty of incoming Cai students, it ' s not too late for one last chance. At Berkeley, all these things and more are manifested in what is commonly known as dorm life. Most Cai dorm residents will agree that living in the dorms Is definitely a learning experience. For most students, It Is the first time they are living away from the comforts and famlllartty of home, which in itself requires quite an ad- justment. Along wtth this comes the search for new friends among countiess new faces, and the Ineffable event of dorm dining, as well as eventual Immersion Into college life, dorm-style. For many, the most Jarring (and eye-opening) Indoctrination Into dorm life Is the co-ed bathroom — tiuty a joyous experience for both sexes. Of course, Cai students are not left (entirely) strand- ed In dealing wtth the aforementioned tilals and trib- ulations. Each dorm building is endowed wtth a reg- iment of Resident Assistants (RA ' s) and a Hal Coordinator (HC), each of whom takes a weekly turn at being on call ail night long. Freshman Janet White, a resident of Stem Hall, described the Job of the R.A. as, " tiie closest thing to a mommy and daddy away from home. " One of the first things that a new reskJent must deal wtth is his her roommate. The prospect of living wtth a total stranger proves to be an un- nerving concern for many students. Freshman Rosalie Mendoza took this In stride although she remembers feeling that the sttuatioi first felt a lot like summer camp; vei porary.

" Dorms also offer a variety of organized activities, like mace training and topical seminars, as well the annual visit from the Amazing Hypnotist. Dances, site-seeing trips to the city, and movie nights are just a few of the events organized purely for fun.

This is a question that many first-year students find them- seives asl ing when they go " bacl home " for the first time. They find that some- thing ' s different about the piace they spent their chiid- hood, something very aiien, or alienating, about their old surroundings. " It was the same place I grew up in, but somehow it wasn ' t the some, " says Hani Syed, a freshman at Col who now lives in an apartment of his own. " Even my family didn ' t treat me the some. " Many students ore surprised at the physical changes around the house, and espe- cially in their own bedrooms. Jason Buntz found this to be true. " My mom changed the house and my room around. My stuff was stiii there, but it was all moved. It didn ' t look like my house anymore. " Most if not all freshmen ex- perience the some phenom- ' enon whenever they return back to " Mom and Dad ' s place " after staying here at Cai for awhile. After adjusting to life in Berkeley, and be- coming disassociated from their hometown, students find It rather uncomfortable to re- turn to the place they once called home. " Irvine felt dif- ferent, " says Zain Yamani, " It seemed as though the Yup- pies came in and took over the place. " Zain realizes that his hometown was like that all along, but he couldn ' t see it until he came back from Berkeley. " People aren ' t in touch with the real world over there. There ' s no people on the streets, no gongs. . . Irvine ' s one of those ' Leave It to Beaver ' kind of cities. " " It was the wctfst weekend of my life, " says Stacy Melczer, who recounts her ex- perience of going back to visit her family. " My dad was frustrated, my mom was an- noyed, and my brother was just being on asshole. It felt very much like it wasn ' t my home. " Many students find themselves in the some situ- ation OS Stacy when they en- counter family members. While the visiting student may not be the cause of the prob- lem, he or she con feel a gen- eral air of negativity.

" I was having a blast. . . my cousin was over and I was able to hove fun with him. I also spent a lot of time with my brothers, which is some- thing 1 never used to do. Every once in a while, though, I kept thinking, ' this isn ' t my home anymore. ' " Sumair continues, " I never really think about my Mom and Dad when I ' m at school ... my Mom was cry- ing when my Dad drove me to the airport. And fifteen minutes after leaving my house, I just broke into tears. " Of course, there ore those students that don ' t really get the feeling that they ' re away from home because they spend so much time there. Many students hail from near- by communities and go home often to drive away the symptoms of homesickness.

The old saying, " You can never go home again, " may confuse students before ar- riving at Col, but OS college freshmen, they soon find out that its meaning holds true.

You think you know exactly what the ASUC encompasses. Let ' s see, there ' s the Underground and this cool place that sells all those sweat-shirts. . . And there ' s that hell-hole from where you had to lug all your books. What else is there? For those who don ' t know, the ASUC is far more complex. It was established in 1884, and officially rec- ognized in 1887 as the Associated Students of the Uni- versity of California. Now, it has evolved into one of the most unique structures of any university, simply because the students run the operation. According to Byron Kamp, former ASUC Executive Director, " The ASUC ' s senators are the board of directors. Every student pays a $21 fee that is collected by the Regents. The Regents then del- egate that money, amounting to about $680,000, to the student government. The power of the senate really comes from that money. They approve the overall budget of activity groups and organizations sponsored by the ASUC. " " The 35 senators and five executive officers have a greater access to campus administration because they are elected by the student body, and roughly represent the students of Berkeley, " stated ASUC President Margaret Fortune. " If students want to have a voice in their student government, they can run for positions in the ASUC. ASUC has a very unique structure in that it is the only autonomous organization run by students in the nation. " " The party system has been pretty well established here at Berkeley, " commented Kamp. " It ' s not that way at other universities. It is an opportune experience, because it isn ' t the real world, but at the same time it is close enough. It allows people to test, to leam, to try, and to be safe in learning. It ' s not as if the world will shatter down upon you. However, more senators deal with issues away from ASUC than they do with ASUC. It is at times a problem, because they lose sight of the fact that they are the Board of Directors of a $21 bilUon operation. " This operation sponsors a wide range of acti vities, groups, a ski lodge at Norden, California, and even the vending machines around campus. When asked about the ASUC, the first thing that comes to many students ' minds is the ASUC Store, located In the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union. Revenues are generated from sources like theCal TBETHAVE ITALL An its 109th year of service, the Associated Students ojthe University of California does indeed have it all.

The Travel Center and eateries like Pappy ' s Pub, Taqueria Reyes, and Natural Sensations are not part of the ASUC, but instead pay rent to the ASUC, since it is in diarge of the buiUiogs and rooms owned uMmarely by the Regents. Hundreds of students vock at the ASUC Store, many who need the money and some who do it for fun. " I needed to work at the ASUC for finanrial teasotu; I needed a job, " said Justine Garvey, a junior at CaL " I enjoy working herr, it ' s pretty easy. It doesn ' t pay all that mudi, but it ' s a pretty good job. The most interesting part of working hete is that you get to talk to a kx of interesting people, and a lot of friends come by here, too. " The ASUC spoosoa a wide range of organizanoos found oo campus. It supports a number of Student Tnm«iT« Service Group (SISG) which includes such groups as the Open Compuriog FadUty, the Student to Student Peer Counseling, and the Bisexual, Gay tt Lobian Resource Center. Akug with the SISGs are over 90 student activity group that help to encompass the individual cultures and intzteso of studeots at Cal. Operadoiu like the Student Union Program Entcttaiiunent attd Recreaticio Board (SUPERB) and the Art Stuxlio provide emoiainment and educanon to the student body. " The Art Studio provides the snideno oo campus with recrrarinnal in, " r ltinni i worker ar the An Studio. " We have pcintmaking, photography (we have five large four-by-five enktgers), ceramics, video, and other • on campus, such as Chjnt brush painting arul book-making. We suppotr ounehres. ASUC provides us with out room, and we arc self-sufficient. The An Studio is a place to come for beginnen who have no experience whatsoever. " The Scudenr Store is but one minute pan of the ASUC. Weil, not exactly minute. But it is conjoined with other chib around campus, and services not just limited to Lower Sproul Plaia. And ultimately, the ASUC is governed by a group of studeno representing the student body. The Asso ciated Students of the University of California is a unique operation in that it is directed by the midents and for the students, and not just because it sells sweat-shirts and books. No wonder it has lasted over 100 yean. 77 Sm Riven Miowrwfi " %r « Gitenvitw6 u tvtn miU I - — , MAC (I im ' Hiopi A!

" Qood friends. ' ' good Giving Something Back lomewhere within the jumble of homework, clubs, social time, and [jobs, some Cal students have also found time for volunteer work. One outlet for those wanting to get involved in community Iservice is Stiles Hall, a century-old, non-profit institution that helps [match up Cal students with people in the community, from el- ementary kids to the elderly. Although it ' s not officially part of the University, Stiles was founded on " a belief in the University of California and its student body as a major force for positive social change. " As Tutor Rolemodel Program coordinator Kelly Brown explains, " 1 think you realize you ' re here on campus, and you ' re doing your own thing and thinking your problems are pretty huge. [But] when you get out there with a kid, just having fun together, you realize that your problems are really so small — that there ' s more out there than just being in school. " Brown, a fourth-year Ethnic Studies major, first came to Stiles during her sophomore year Moved by a feeling that she was fortunate to be at Cal, and a desire to give something back to the community, she volunteered in the One-to-One program, which matches college students with children from the community in a big brother big sister-type relationship. Even though the official commitment only lasted a year. Brown still keeps in touch with her " little sister " " 1 know of one man who put his little brother through college, and a girl who went to her big sister ' s wedding, " says David Stark, Stiles ' Director of Community Service. " We require a big time commitment, and that means the people who come here are really dedicated to what they do. " Indeed, the Stiles schedule might seem demanding to some students struggling to balance the rigors of college life: four to six hours a week for two semesters, minimum, for all programs. But when Stark relates the lives of the children involved, the importance of this commitment becomes clear: " With the children we work with, there are too many people in and out of their lives; they need that sense of stability. " In addition to the One-to-One program, Stiles also offers an Elderly Companionship program. Mental Health internships, and Berkeley Own Recognizance. Coordinators stress Im- proved race relations, education, and community service as the institution ' s goals. " Although we offer it, " Stark explains, " less than one quarter of the volunteers actually get University credit tor their work. Most do it for their own personal joy, a chance to get to know a kid and to give something back to the community. It just feels good. " By JODl TomstrOTD " You ' re here on campus, doing your own thing and thinking your problems are pretty huge, [but] when you get out there with a kid, just having fun to- gether, you realize that your problems are really so small. " — Kerry Brown 1 j! community service 79 Women ' s Resource Center by Debbie Yuan Ui MT or as far back as we can remem- ber, women have been considered a second class. With the growing need for a sup- port group to offer help and hope In response to women ' s concerns, the Women ' s Resource Center has blossomed at Cal to fill the niche. Started in 1972, at a time when issues of economic and educational empow- erment through the work force were seen as key to advancing women ' s sta- tus, the Center has grown to enhance the academic achievement and person- al development of women on campus and in the community through its var- ious services. To achieve this goal, the Center provides forums as a medium for the ex- change of Ideas and opin- ions. It also alms to build a sense of community among women of diverse backgrounds through sup- port groups such as ASPIRE (Asian Pacific American Women Initiating For Rights and Empowerment), Black Women ' s Support Group, Mujeres en Morcho (Chicana Latlno group), Sistah Sistoh (Lesbian Bisexual Women of Color questioning group), and Student Par- ent Support Group Also of- fered are Information and You are female You shall be called Eve, And what is masculine shall be called God. And from your name Eve we shall take the word Evil. And from God ' s the word Good. Now you understand patriarchal morality. -Judy Grahn advice for women students on surviving the challenges of a university setting, as well as opportunities for internships that teach learning and advocacy skills. Finally, the Center provides crisis inten ention and a specialized library that houses a unique collection of materials by, for, and about women. While most of its services ore used by undergraduate women, men too utilize the Center as a valuable resource for a women ' s studies class. According to Dorothy Lazard, the Library and Informa- tion Resources Coordinator, one male stu- dent found on outlet for his concern for women ' s issues by coordinating a De-Cal class on sexual harassment. " Services that are in greatest demand are for crisis colls, " said Lazord. " We have specially trained in- ternees who act as counselors for those seeking help in deal- ing with experiences of sexual assault. We also have students who go to dorms and sororities to speak on Title IX (Sexual Harass- ment). On battered women, Lazard add- ed, " we are at a time when it ' s no longer okay for a husband to beat up his wife, and we ' ve got to let them know that. " According to Lazard, their goal has changed slightly from the post, in that the Center now at- tempts to integrate the concerns of American women of color. " Previously it has been stilt- ed toward one kind (of stu- dent), but with changing demographics of campus, community, and staff, we ' ve tried to reach out to women of all backgrounds and to make our services more accessible. " Lazard said that working at the Women ' s Resource Center is an " education all the time. " " The students ore giving support bock to us, and we ' ve grown ex- ponentially in both staff and students. " urninc the of Portune By Debbie Yuan " When I broke my neck in a car accident, I dtdn ' t have much choice hut to attend col- lege; after all, there aren ' t very many quadriplegic basketball players in the NBA. Neverthe- less, going to college was a frightening step. " — Eric Kelly, Disabled Students ' Pro- gram Started in 1970, the Disabled Stu- dents ' Program (DSP) is one of several service organizations on campus to " maximize the opportu- nities students with disabilities have for equal access to the campus ' in- structional programs and services and to provide disability-related in- formation to the campus communi- ty- " Over the years, DSP has expanded both in resources and function. More than 200 auxiliary service providers work as sign language interpreters, readers, notetakers, laboratory assis- tants, library assistants, tutors, and amanuenses to over 820 students with hearing, visual, orthopedic, mo- bility, non-visible, or learning dis- abilities. DSP ' s major activities pro- vide academic services, adaptive equipment, counseling and advising, information, and mobility assistance. Specialized services include the Attendant Referral and various other services for students with specific d isabilities. The Physically Disabled Students ' Residence program, one of the first of its type in the country, was started in 1962 to provide special services for students with severe disabilities dur- ing their first year in the University residence halls. Through a program like this, students who have lived at home or in nursing homes gradually build independence and familiarity with campus and community re- sources; hence, this enables more than 90 percent of participants to live on their own in the community. The Wheelchair Repair Shop func- tions as more than just a repair shop. It is also the transportation center, fulfilling a vital role on a rainy day, for instance, by providing a ride to class or coming to the rescue when a chair breaks down. At the same time, the staff works at adapting equip- ment such as door openers and eat- ing utensils and building equipment custom-designed for special needs. Other disabled students ' services on campus include the Access Proj- ect, which strives toward making community facilities more accessible, emphasizing integration. Various classes and activities have devel- oped, ranging from sailing and self- defense to whale-watching and wine-tasting. Cal STAR offers disabled faculty, staff, students, and community mem- bers integrated recreation in the De- partment of Recreational Sports pro- grams. With help, blind Cal STAR members have been able to rock- climb, while river rafting, bowling and skiing have been made possible for wheelchair-confined members. The Berkeley campus library sys- tem also provides various special services and equipment for disabled students. The BAKER Service deliv- ers books, photocopies, and reserve materials to the DSP office or to the students in their homes. " have never regretted my de- cision to attend Cal; I received a bachelor ' s degree in Business Admi nistration, and most im- portantly, I learned to live in- dependently. The Disabled Students ' Program provided the two crucial services . . . that allowed me to lead a " normal " college life. " — Eric Kelly, Disabled Students ' Pro- gram 81 CD ' —- ■ " p o n CRIME Increased awareness leads to decrease in DC Campus Crime in 1992. I iolent crime on the nine UC campuses decreased for a second consecutive year in 1992. falling to the lowest level since 1988. The UC Police Department ' s annual report shows a nine percent drop in reported incidents of violent crime and a one percent decline in reported property crimes. The overall crime rote dropped one percent. UC San Diego Police Chief John Anderson, who coordinated the report, said, " I think it ' s a positive result of the federal legislation that occured last year requiring campuses to publish crime rates and crime prevention information. We hove always done that in the university system but I think the publicity that went along with that really enhanced awareness on campus, " Anderson said. There were 162 reports of violent crimes on UC campuses in 1992. Among those were one homicide, 12 ropes, nine attempted ropes, 53 robberies and 86 aggravated assaults. Among 9,323 reported incidents of property crime, there were 2,435 bicycle thefts, 1,421 burglaries, 464 motor vehicle thefts and 67 arson cases. " The ratio of police to the community has gone down so I think it ' s really positive. I think more people ore taking responsibility, " Anderson said. The UC rate of violent crime per 100,000 is 93 percent less than for the state of California. " We ' ve always been much safer than the surrounding communities, " he said, adding, " It ' s probably safer to be walking across the Berkeley campus at 10 o ' clock at night than it is to be walking down the street in any community in California. The campuses, at least in Ca- lifornia, appear to be much safer than the streets of the cities. " At UC Berkeley, one homicide, three rapes, 14 rob- beries and 12 aggravated assaults were reported. In- cidents of homicide, rape and robbery each increased by one, while reports of aggravated assaults were down by eight. Anderson said the students, faculty, and staff are more aware of crime than they were a few years ago. " People have realized that campuses aren ' t a sanctuary where everybody is immune to the some type of things that happen in the community. " Layout by Elizabeth D ' Oilvlera Text by Julie Agullar Photos by Lara Vlnnard 83 Incidence of AIDS and STDs Rises; Behavioral Modification Fails to Keep Pace GET THE FACTS! decade ago, almost no one Cy ' had heard of AIDS. Now, vir- - tually everyone knows someone who is HIV positive or who has died from complications resulting from AIDS. On the U.C. Berkeley campus, we like to think we are ed- ucated about the realities of sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, and we are, for the most part. How- ever, even top universities like Cal have quite a way to go before every- one practices safe t ehavior. According to the Condom Re- source Center ' s newspaper. Con- dom Sense, the rate of syphilis incidence nation- wide is at the highest level in forty years. And " sexual diseases that few had heard of 20 years ago abound: her- pes, chlamydia, pelvic inflamma- tory disease. " Many sexually transmitted dis- eases (STDs) fre- quently have no symptoms and yet can cause in- fertility or, if left untreated, even death. However, surveys Indicate that only between 8 and 16 percent of adults in the United States regularly use condoms. According to Cathy Kodama of the University Health Service (CJHS), re- ferring to the Berkeley campus, " HPV, which is venereal warts. Is at epidemic proportions, as Is chlamydia. " It Is estimated that one In five students at Cal has a sexually transmitted disease. AIDS has also hit close to home, as some students, faculty, and staff have died of the disease. What can be done to educate the Berkeley campus about safe sex is- sues? As It turns out, the University Health Service at Cal developed one of the first campus AIDS education programs in the country, back in 1985. This program aims both to pre- vent the spread of AIDS (and, by promoting safer sex, other STDs as well) and " to foster a supportive cam- pus environment for people with AIDS and HIV infection " (from the leaflet, " HIV AIDS Education for the Berkeley Campus " ). One of the highlights of the AIDS prevention program is the Multicul- Studenl MAPP performers at Davidson Hall (lur nght) simulate use ot unsterlliied needles as on example of high-risk behavior In another skit, (above), s lesbian tells her girlfriend she Is HIV tural AIDS Peer Program, or MAPP, which is made up of a group of rig- orously selected and extensively trained student peer educators. These students, according to Kodama of the UHS, " don ' t have to have had a lot of experience with outreach but they do need to be sen- sitive to the issues " of AIDS pre- vention and support for a multicul- tural student body. All peer educators working with the UHS are given at least a couple of weekends, and up to forty hours of training Ijefore the fall semester begins. Then, during their one-year commitment, they take So- cial and Administrative Health Sci- ences 175 A and B. which reinforce their training. This year, seven of the 22 MAPP participants are returning students who developed the new MAPP II The- ater Group. These students perform skits for various student groups on campus, particularly living groups. Each student role-plays a sexually ac- tive character, usually conforming to a stereotype of a certain ethnicity or sexual orientation. " At the end of the presentation, after all the characters have been thoroughly questioned at)out how they do it, who they do It with, and what they use when they do it, the peer (educators) ask the audience the ultimate question: If you had to choose, tell us who is the safest sexual partner? ' The correct answer is none of them. . They all practice unsafe sex. ' " (from The Daily Cal.) The lesbian character Is unsafe be- cause she used to t e bisexually active, the guy who uses lamb- skin condoms Isn ' t aware that the pores In those condoms are large enough for the AIDS virus to pass through, and the other characters are equally unsafe. This type of pres- entation aims Ixjth to address the special needs of students of color by using multicultural characters and working to end denial about Individ- ual AIDS risk, and to shatter the mis- conception that HIV Infection is the result of who you have sex with, not how you have On the Berkeley campus, venereal worts and chlamydia are at epidemic proportions, with one in five Cal students estimated to have a sexually transmitted disease. And yet surveys estimate that less than 16 percent of adults in the U.S. use condoms regularly. STD Facts • U.S. health officials say AIDS deaths will double by 1995 (to about 350,000). • Syphilis infection is at the highest rate in 41 years. • Chlamydial infection is the most com- mon STD in the U.S.. with about 5 to 7 million new cases each year. • Contraceptive practice, at least in the U.S., is directly related to age, with the youngest people being the least likely to use a method. • Drug use (including alcohol use) among college students has a significant impact on the spread of STDs, including HIV. • It isn ' t who you are. it ' s what you do. that matters. " Risk behaviors " are much more relevant than " risk groups " . • Increasing numbers of women and heterosexuals are developing AIDS. • The University Health Service can an- swer your questions about AIDS. STDs. and safer sex. as well as provide coun- seling and referrals to test sites. In addition to the MAPP program, there are many other resources at Cal that provide prevention education and support relating to AIDS. Student leaders such as RAs are trained in prevention education and referrals. Sexual Health Peer Educators, trained even more extensively than MAPP participants, give presentations to student groups on STD prevention and contraception, and also meet in- dividually with students who are di- agnosed with STDs or who have questions about STDs, contracep- tion, or communicating with a part- ner. Pamphlets are available at Tang Center which address such issues as how to use a condom or the rela- tionship between alcohol and un- wanted pregnancies and disease transmission. One handout lists sites for free, anonymous HIV testing in the area, including Berkeley City Health Services and the Berkeley Free Clinic. Tang itself does not offer the testing because there are quite a few sites nearby. In addition to medical care for HIV and AIDS patients at Tang Center, the Disabled Students Program lends support and advocacy, and the Gay Counseling Program provides coun- seling and arranges support groups for students affected by AIDS. There is no shortage of resources at Cal for students, faculty, or staff who want to learn how to protect themselves. Condoms are sold on campus and people at Tang are al- ways ready to answer questions alxjut safer sex. Finally, there is al- ways Condom Awareness Week, usu- ally the week of Valentine ' s Day, when volunteers hand out condoms and hold events to promote safer tje- havior. Cathy Kodama says, " We try to juggle the written information, stu- dent outreach, maybe an article in The Daily Cal, or an on-campus event. We try and juggle these dif- ferent approaches because having a lot of brochures and posters out there isn ' t the whole answer. To have that stuff out all the time, people get pret- ty immune to it. We have been through that phase when we did that a lot and people didn ' t seem to b e any better informed than they are now. " With all the innovative programs now at Cal. it Is clear that the university Is making progress in educating people, but the problem, of course, is that greater awareness does not always translate into safer behavior. fe early, vote otten 86 (JC u ' t PM- tJ 3cort 87 n? et Berkeley continue the tradition of pro- ducing dissidents, the politically incorrect, and rebels in order to aid the survival of society. " — I ' rofesiOT Leon Litwack, History Department Keynote Speaker of the 1993 membership induction reception of the Golden Key National Honor Society, UC Berkeley Chapter What do the fight against AIDS through public education, The Best of America alcohol and drug abuse prevention program, and the lop 15% of the juniors and seniors al Cal have in common? The Golden Key National Honor Society sponsors and en- lorses such programs and supplies the humanpower to make hese events happen. As a non-profit academic honors organization established for the purpose of recognizing and encouraging scholastic achievement among students from all academic fields, the Golden Key N ' ationa Honor Society was founded at Georgia State Uni- versity by a group of highly motivated undergraduate students. Since thai time, Golden Key has become a positive, highly respected force in higher education. The Society has 180 active chapters including Berkeley, over 350,000 lifetime members, and 4,200 honorary members including Ghancellor Chang-Lin Tien and President Bill Clinton. In addition, over $700,000 in scholarships have been presented to Golden Key members nationwide through two annua awards given to outstanding junior and senior initiates. As an academic organization, membership is by in vitation only, based on outstanding academic achieve- ment, which places its members among a very select group of students. Golden Key not only promotes scholastic achievement, but also " altruistic conduct through voluntary service. " Golden Key is a vehicle for students to get involved by providing service to the university and the community, " said Stanford Hirata, Western Regional Director. In keeping with that tradition, the Berkeley chapter hosted a three- day display of the NAMES Project .AIDS Memorial Quilt in early April (see story pg. 1 1 9). h Debbie Yuan 88 honor societies For the fourth time in its history, the quilt was laid out in President ' s Park on the Washington Monument grounds in October, 1992. " The NAMES Project is remarkable not only in terms of providing friends and family members who have lost a loved one to AIDS with a ca- thartic means of expression, but it serves as a poignant symbol to us all of the tragedy and enormity that is AIDS, " explained Golden Key Honorary Member and American Red Cross President Elizabeth Dole. Besides Golden Key, another presti- gious academic organization is the Scholastic Honor Students ' Society (HSS). Founded in 1923 by Robert Sproul with the goal of providing free tutoring to UC Berkeley ' s student body, HSS remains one of the oldest and largest student- run organizations on campus. Besides providing tutoring serv- ices, HSS has grown to include organizing events such as an in- formal lecture series, referring members to local community ser- vice organizations, and offering information trips to specific career sites. Membership is open to stu- dents with a 3.3 or higher GPA and who are prepared to complete five Membership Participation Hours dur- ng the semester through tutoring and community service. Other clubs include the ortar Board Senior Honor Society, which pro- vides academic services and support for seniors who have outstanding achievements in academ- ics, the community, and leadership positions; Tau Beta Pi, a national engineering honor society; Prytanean, which is open by invitation to out- standing junior and senior women; and the ( al Alumni Scholar Association. 89 MIS SION STATEMENT: As the Organization of African Students, our goals are: to improve ttie conditions of life on the U.C, Berkeley campus for all people of African descent; to combat ra- cial discrimination on the campus and in the surrounding community by disseminat- ing political information and acting as a catalyst for social change; and to in- crease awareness of our African African American culture, and display it with pride. 90 : a Crossing the Sather Gate bridge in the noon crush, most of us have seen the placards advertising INDUS, the Armenian Student Association, Project Korean Involvement. But how many of us have attended a meeting, or even thought about what these groups do? For some Cal students, their only contact with cultural empowerment groups may be through the graffiti on Dwinelle ' s walls or stories in the Daily Cal. But in a year that saw the tension of the Rodney King retrials and protests for a stronger ethnic studies department, on a campus crowded with students of every imaginable race and color, these cultural groups serve a vital purpose. Some are service groups, focusing on helping minority students stay in school or get invloved in the community. Others work to promote cultural pride and awareness, keeping traditions alive or helping bring together students with a similar ethnic background. Whatever their goal, these groups are as diverse as the peoples they represent. One group that manages to combine pride and social awareness is MISC., which strives to provide a forum where students of interracial descent can talk about the issues that concern them. " A lot of interracial students don ' t identify with either race, " explains MISC. member Jessica Green, a second- year student. " In this society and especially on this campus, many people feel forced to choose which ethnic group they want to hang out with. It ' s hard if you ' re not sure where you fit in — we want people to know that ' s okay. " Through events such as weekly discussions and multiethnic panels like " Into the Mix, " a forum presented at multicultural festivals and in the dorms, MISC. members explore their feel- ings and options as members of not one race, but many. One topic the group has discussed is the criticism some people target at ethnic clubs, charging them with promoting sep- aratism on an already divided campus. Although many MISC. members, including Green, might agree with that statement. Green points out that " it ' s good to have cultural and ethnic pride. The problem is that everyone is so concerned with getting their voice out and getting their own message heard that they ' re not communicating with other groups. " Overall, she says, " I think everybody wants the same kinds of things, from education and from life in general, but they ' re not talking to other groups about those things. " Those goals — recognition for minorities, cultural pride, a better multicultural education — have the power to unite or to divide, and the power lies within the group. by Jeni Ternstrom cultural clubs 91 . y " he old picture of the rich, beer-swilling fret boy and the — y hair-sprayed, loose sorority girl is a persistent one. We oil _ X l now it ' s not accurate, but what is? Too many of us outside Greek life (and i am outside: When I received a brochure about " Greek life " before I came to Gal, I actually wondered why there were so many people from Greece in Berkeley, and why they would be contacting me), the secrecy surrounding initiations, hazing, and rituals only fuels the myths and stereotypes. As fraternities and sororities forge onward in a new decade — facing tough new alcohol laws, declining rush, changing demographics, and increasing challenges to their elitist reputation — the Greek system finds itself redefining its goals and personality. Ever wary about stereotypes, fraternity and sorority members are quick to point out the benefits of philanthropy, leadership, scholarship, and brotherhood that they provide. Today, unkown to most, phi- lanthropy has become increasingly structured in its community-aiding activities. " I was attracted to fraternities by the parties, " admits one member, " but what I ' ve found Is a great opportunity for friendship, academic help, socializing — and parties. " He smiles. As much OS they depise the stereotyping of " frot boys " and " sorority girls, " quite a bit of Intro-Greek stereotyping goes on, too — witness certain unflattering couplets and telling acronyms that make the rounds. Both foil ond spring rush at Col attracted lower numbers than expected this year, causing some people to speculate on the Greek sytem ' s future. Although the system is for from dying, it Is changing, both at Berkeley and nationally. 92 ome fear that the shrinking will create a vicious circle: as fraternities and sororities become smaller, they m ay tend to attract only the people who fit the stereotypes. Others say that this shrinking may ultimately be beneficial, creating stronger bonds between remaining members and a tighter social scene. Space rush this year has been attributed to a number of factors. Some people may be reluctant to take on the added financial strain in these tough times for the economy. University Greek Advisor Mark Geisinger said in the " Daily Ca- lifornian. " Other students may simpy not feel that they ' re a part of the Greek tradition. As fraternities ponder strict new alcohol laws already in effect at other schools, particularly because of insurance risks, some members say that limited alcohol at parties would further decrease membership. Cal has a relatively small Greek segment — about 14% of all undergraduates ore currently in 44 fraternities and 14 sororities. (A disputed campus survey shows that 70% of those members are " white. " ) The low numbers, combined with Col ' s already diverse student body, moke s the Berkeley Greek experience unique. " Berkeley is such a liberal school that the Greeks can ' t just be the conservative elitists that they are at other schools, " says one freshman sorority member. " My pledge class has o diversity that my friends at other schools can ' t imagine. " " The Cal Greek experience is like no other, " sums up a friend. Also reflective of Berkeley ' s diverse culture is the increasing popularity of " greek " organizations targeting specific ethnic groups. African-American fra- ternities and sororities are gaining visibility on campus, while Asian-American sororities continue to attract top students interested in community issues. 93 d BERKELEY iS GUIDES 0 .

The Berkele y Guides, written and edited exclusively by Cal students, have locked horns with their primary competition — Let ' s Go — after only eight months on the bookshelves. From the San Franslsco Chronicle to the New York Times, the reviews have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic, and even " The Tonight Show " suggested an interview. So what are the Berkeley uldes all about? In 1991 a bunch of intrepid Cal students set out to create a new travel series covering Eastern Europe, Mexico, California and the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Not only did we hope to offer an alternative to Harvard ' s 32-year-old travel yap. Let ' s Go. but we were also Inspired to create a guide that would lead our readers off the beaten path, as well as provide information for a diverse read- ership and offer a cultural, political, and social context in which travelers could sit- uate their experiences.

Wrien you get into a conversation with another Religious Studies major, ihcy have totally different views of what the major can be. When we converse it ' s just hours and hours of differences and commonalities; I think it ' s made me a little bit wiser in this world. " Religious Studies also affords Chin the opportunity to think and explore new territory. " Every society that has ever existed, or probably will exist, had religion either meshed into it or as a central identity. What makes it so important? I think these questions are moving away from philosophy and going towards some kind of human nature that ' s beyond ethics and morals. " I see understanding religion as a way to understand peo- ple a little bit better. There ' s so much history out there that you need to understand, and yet I myself am making opinions and formulating ideas on my own. " This issue of history is sometimes difficult for Chin, a Christian, who finds that the department ' s emphasis on his- torical rather than theological ■ icrspectives is sometimes bi- ed against the major reli- gions, especially Christianity. ■.• ny time you get into a so- I iological field, or any field for hat matter, it ' s not very ob- li ctive.

" Despite this challenge. Chin feels Religious Studies was the right decision. " I ' ve got a better grounding; I understand now a little bit more what people were thinking, why in the Bible they were using mustard seeds instead of poppy seeds, for example - just what the context was.

" I got my clergy card by sending S3 to the Subgenius Foun- dation, " says " priest ' Tim High, a second-year student. " It comes with a certificate called the all-inclusive excuse. It says that at all times I am on official church business, and no one has the right to stop me or question me, and that furthermore I may take donations at any time. Now is a good one. " Although the Church is not really a " church " - High points out that they don ' t meet and he doesn ' t even know any other member here in Berkeley — they do have a figurehead (J.R. " Bob " Dobbs), an evil opposing force (Wotan, so powerful one shouldn ' t even say its name aloud), and a book. The book details the religion ' s principles, mainly slack. " This is the one thing that can save us all, and there is not enough of this m the world. Slack doesn ' t mean not doing homework, and it doesn ' t mean sitting in front of the TV drinking beer (or at least not necessarily). " As High savs, " Slack means doing what you want with your life. " On a more esoteric level, Subgenii believe slack is actually a phys- ical-energy Quantity that the earth needs more of " You are saving the world by having all the sex you want! " High re- minds us. J.R. " Bob " Dobbs, the church ' s main fig- ure, looks like the typ- _ ical 50s father, com- plete with pipe. " In fact, " High says, " those men you see in aas and on TV are all him. " Bob is perfect in every- thing, " especially in being fallible. " The Church started a number of years ago in the minds ofa group of guys, lead by the Rev. Ian Stang. They really started this whole thing as a way to make money, " High says, without a hint of surprise. " They concocted a brilliant religion full of humor and moral lessons to sell a lot of copies. They tell us this in the book. We buy it anvwav — be- cause we think (In ' ' i r. " The religion is out not being so upu m, nm let- ting people push you around and tell you what to do, and about parodying religions, so y that people can see some of the things wrong with them " What it is is a philos- o p h v maskea in a very h i 1 a r i- ous par- ody of a r e I i- B i o n , " High says. People are either born Subgenii or they ' re not, depending (son of) on where their ancestors were when the Fist of Remov- al destroyed Atlantis. " It s not really a matter of choice, " says High. A lot of people who think they are subgeniuses are really humans caught up 1 some sort of ' fad ' or something because they think it ' s ' cool. ' " These " ignorantly zealous followers, known as " Bobbies, " are often conned by real subgenii, who delight in selling them " Bob " t-shirts and the Tike. One of the group ' s more intriguing be- liefs is that on July 5, 1998, at 7 a.m., " while everyone else is nursing a hangover from the patriotic alcohol-drug fesl the night before, " the subgenii will be gath- ring to leave the planet on L FOs. They will be the lucky few who will escape the onslaught of invaders from the planet X, who are coming to enslave and kill all humans. (The X-ists will be lead by Jesus, who is really an alien and is pretty peeved about being crucified.) High is coy about tnis bit of in- formation. Are alien invaders really planning to Hestrnv r hungover Earth? " Everyone reading this wil ' a joke, so 1 feel free to say this without ti repercussions, " High says.

Although Cal went on to crush Stanford. SJSU backed out of the deal.

" Our fans arc unbelievable, " goalie Pete Werner says. " There are more fights in the stands for the pucks that go out thete than there are on the ice " Cal ' s animated fans not only add interest to the game, but encourage the players as well. by Jeni Ternstrom " I don ' t think any of us would enjoy playing here if it weren ' t for the fans. We re the only team in the league that really gets fans. Stanford gets maybe a hundred people, but their band sucks, " Neuhaus says " Our band is awesome. And the fans are what makes it all worthwhile. Every team is scared to come play us " " They add a lot of character to the rink, " Werner says with a smile. Another faaor contributing to the Bears winning season was new coach Jeff Wilson. " The coach makes a huge difference, " Neuhaus says He put in a heck of a lot of work. He coached high school hockey in Michigan, and he loves the sport. We ' re all really excited to come back to play for him , and that didn ' t exist throughout the team with our previous coach. " Through Wilson ' s contacts in Michigan, Cal is hoping that this year, for the first time, they will be able to do some recruiting. The Bears face a double difficulty, because even if they do entice a player to C , the player must also get into Cal, home of a notoriously tough admis- sions process. As a ilub sport, the hcKkey team offers no scholarslups. Most of the team ' s funding comes ftom gate receipts, with a little " seed money " from the Rec Sports program. " It ' s a really expensive sport, " says left wing Kenny Kim. " That ' s why our fans are so important to us — they are our survival. " The highhght of the season was undeniably Cal ' s viaory over Stanford on February 27, in which they won the coveted " Golden Skate, " T Cal Ice Hockey Stanford in the other Big Game. the Big Chill Game ' s trophy. This was the first time in four years that Cal has won the match- up. " Walking out through the crowd we were mugged by the fans, " Neuhaus says. " It was so exdting — I never expeaed an)thing like this at college, much less at Cal. If 1 could say thank you to the fans for that moment . . . Hopefully some good playing in the next couple of years will be thanks enough ' " Kim agrees about the good memories. " When we all graduate, hockey is the thing we ' ll remember most about our years here, the road trips and the huge games. " " That and the crazy fans, " Ncuhaus laughs. Next year, Cal hopes to continue its success, even with the loss of hard-hitting cent- er defenseman Chris Modene. A core of " impaa players " (in more than one sense) will be returning to fuel the Bears: Werner. Kim, Neuhaus, center Andy " Speedy Denson, and others. In the more distant future ( " like when our kids are playing hockey, " " someone says), the players hope hockey wiU enventually be a NCAA sport at Cal. That would mean having a university-owned ice rink near or on campus. Ideally, when Harmon Gym is rebuilt, it will be adaptable to ice as well as baskcrfwll. " It will be a long ways in the future, " ICim says. " But if my hometown of Anaheim can have a hockey team (the soon-to-be NHL Disney-owned Ducks), anything can happen.

Since 1958, China revised the old traditional Wushu forms, combining them with Peking Opera, gymnastics, and acrobatics to create a con- temporary art form that is aesthetically pleasing, vi- sually exciting, and physically demanding. While the forms still contain kicks and punches, em- phasis is now on developing the physical abil- •. ities of the performer and on interpreting the flavor and spirit of each particular style of Wushu. Often, the movements are chore- ographed to music to create a truly ex- citing art form. Chinese Wushu con- tains Tver 300 different forms including Northern and Southern styles, internal and external forms, and forms that imitate animals.

But first the Bears are go- ing to relax and savor this one. " Right now I ' m just happy the season ' s over, " said Cal forward Stevie Johnson. " I ' m happy with what we did this season. I ' m happy we bounced back from the things that happened in February. " Back in February, as the fairy tale goes, the Bears were struggling with a 10-7 record, head coach Lou Companelli was fired and was re- placed by 29-year-old assistant Todd Bozeman. Coach Bozeman sprang new life into the team and gruided the young Bears to the NCAA tournament. At the Midwest regional in Chicago, the team, led by freshman Jason Kidd and senior Brian Hendrick, won its first game against Louisiana State University with Jason Kidd ' s last second and game winning " pretzel shot " giving the team the 66-64 win. The Bears topped that performance with a stunning 82-77 victory over Duke, a team who had made it to the Final Four for the past five seasons, but fell to Kansas in the third round. " I think (the win against Duke) opened a lot of people ' s eyes, " said Cal guard K.J. Roberts (pictured left), " and proved that we can com- pete with anybody in the country. " " We ' re not surprised we beat them, " Johnson said. " We knew we could. Hopefully that will put us on the map.

With over 22,000 panels total, the 400 which covered the floors of Pauley Ballroom are but a stitch of the vast (and growing dally) Quilt. Each 3 ' x 6 ' panel represents one person — straight, gay, young, old, male, female — who has died of A IDS or an AIDS-related Illness. Sewn by friends and family of the lost one, the panels are often stitched with pieces of cloth- ing, shoes, toys, stuffed animals, concert tickets, wedding rings, and endless other mementos of the vibrant lives which have been ripped away. The NAMES Project Foundation, begun in 1987, displayed the Quilt for the first time on the Mail in Washington, D.C. In October of the same year. At that time, with almost 2,000 panels, the Quilt covered more space than a football field. Now that the Quilt has grown to over 13 foothiall fields (with no upper limit in sight) the Quilt may be too big to ever be displayed in its entirety again. Even at this great size, though, the Quilt represents only 13% of all as. AIDS deaths, and only 2% of AIDS deaths worldwide. Public response to the Quilt has been over- whelming. Soaked with the love and loss felt by those who created the panels, the Quilt Is a deeply affecting, visceral reminder that AIDS Is a shat- tering. Indiscriminate plague. Seth EdIavitch, Ed- ucation Coordinator for the Berkeley AIDS Aware- ness Project which helped bring the Quilt to campus, explained, " The whole point of this Is to say, this is you. ' It makes people think, it makes people cry. It makes people get Involved. " As one student volunteer said. " The Quilt should serve as a reminder to everyone that we are all at risk. Re- member those who have passed and protect your- self. The Quilt Is much too big as It Is.

" This spring, Chatman taught Rhetoric 28: The Open Text: The Modern Short Story and Antonioni ' s Films in conjunc- tion with the PFA retrospective. " Literature is becoming increasingly open, but Hollywood is scared to death of open texts. And Antonioni ' s films are the most open of films. They don ' t an- swer questions in the way Hollywood audiences are accustomed to having them answered. The less you have the characters speaking, as in L ' avventura. the less you know what ' s on their minds, " says Chatman.

" • --- Changing Our World Acclaimed Authors Speak at Cal Mn a benefit for Democratic Education at Cal (DeCAL), Berkeley was privileged to welcome Alice Walker, Maxine-Mong Kingston, and Susan Griffiths to address the theme, " Changing Ourselves, Changing Our World " to a captive audience in Dwinelle Hall on April 7, 1993. Three of America ' s formemost women authors, their works have greatly expanded the discourse on gender and ethnic issues. Most famous of these works are Alice Walker ' s The Temple of My farniliar, and The Color Purple, adressing the conditions of black women, and Kingston ' s Trip Master Monkey, Chinamen, and her national Book Award Winner, Woman Warrior. Maxine-Hong Kingston, a Cal graduate and current faculty member of the English Department here, has continued to write while instructing students in the art of prose. Light, comical, and warm, Ms. Kingston pays little heed to her acclaimed status — choosing instead to emphasize her writing and the meaning it conveys. Ms. Kingston has said that " writing is a great delight as well as a terrible burden. " For her, it seems that it is the truth-seeking responsibility which becomes most taxing, though it is a burden she has clearly accepted. In her writings exploring the experiences of first-generation Chinese immigrants and their children, Ms. Kingston has been wary of more simplistic representations of the Chinese community, and has hoped to infuse her writing with a deeper understanding of these people. Ms. Kingston also described the nascent spirituality in both her outlook and writing, bom as a result of the recent loss of her father, coupled with the loss of her home in the Berkeley hills fire. Ms. Kingston lost all her possessions, as well as the manuscript for the book she ' d been writing. This loss caused her to think deeply about the nature of the human condition in relation to one ' s physical environment. After the fire, she realized that, " The only things that remained are the things I gave away. " The concurrent loss of her father lefl her " fatheriess and thingless. " As she slowly grew accustomed to the absence of her material things, she found that a strong, invisible spirit remained. It was this spirit from which she drew strength, and the will to move on with her life and work. She found, too, that the loss of her possessions gave her better access to the ideas and spirits within her. Ms. Kingston is now working on a novel tentatively subtitled A Book of Peace. Both fiction and non-fiction, it will be interwoven, most likely, with autobiographical threads. What makes this venture unique is that Ms. Kingston is searching for a happy ending to the novel and plans to dedicate the next few years to finding this ending. Meanwhile, she will continue to offer Berkeley students the chance to accompany her in the pursuit of perfecting the art of expression through the written word. Writing is a great delight as well as a terrible burden. " ' — Maxine-tlong Kingston 142 by LabonI Amena Hoq GojttQiK CM Durham Studio Theatre Presents: The Glass Mountain he Durham Studio Theatre is a unique creative outlet for Berkeley ' s the- atrically inclined, as well as a gift to those who appreciate the art of theatre. The productions are organized and run by graduate students in the Dramatic Arts Department, who then recruit other Cal students (both graduate and under- graduate) to try their talents as directors, actors, actresses, and crew members. Durham Theatre is located in the back of Dwinelle Hall and is free to all patrons. In a play titled The Glass Mounta in, directed by graduate student of Dramatic Arts Steven Tills, we see Durham Studio Theatre at its best. The Qlass Mountain is based upon the norwegian folk tale, " The Princess on the Qlass Mountain. " According to the director, the premise is simple. In a faraway land lives a king with his beautiful daughter. This king will give his daughter in marriage to anyone who can ride to the top of a steep, slippery glass mountain and receive from her the three golden apples of sovereignty. Hundreds of knights and princes have tried the mountain and failed, only to plummet to their deaths; but now, along comes a hero .... After watching the play, though, it is obvious that the theme of this version of the play is far from simple. In fact, the playwright. Tor Age Bringsvaerd, has taken this benign fairytale and tumed it into a contemporary social satire. In essence, Bringsvaerd portrays the task of reaching the top of this coveted mountain as a mindless quest. The fact that all able-bodied persons are somehow driven to this quest is for the most part a satire on the perversity of modem society in its empty pursuit of material wealth and possessions. The playwright is really posing the question of what kind of society dedicates every waking moment and dream to something as inconsequential as a glass moun- tain, where the object of desire, the princess, is really nothing more than an object. This is indeed a perverse place, and it is also the perverse society in which we live. Director Steven Tills describes the quest to reach the glass mountain as " an endless pursuit — like a fairy tale, yet in a perverse and brutal place — where very few people end up winning. " The play ' s morbid end is a testament to the brutality of this world. The Olass Mountain was performed in Durham Studio Theatre on April 22-24, 1993 as a presentation of the Dramatic Arts Department. Steven Titls, director of The Glass Mountain , de- scribes the quest to climb the glass mountain as an endless pursuit — like a fairy tale, yet in a per- verse and brutal place — where very few people end up winning.

Students staged a sit-In at California Hall on April 8, attracting media attention when police maced protesters who blocked the entrance to the building. Days later, students came out in full force In a march down Bancroft Way (below). Supporters cite rising enrollment in the program, dwindling funding, and paucity of resources as the main factors in seeking department status. Further, as a department. Ethnic Studies would be guaranteed a Dean and greater decision-making power. Arguments within the administration have centered around whether allowing a separate Ethnic Studies Department would foster academic separatism, allowing students to pass through the University without ever moving outside of their respective majors.

Today, there are three Raza Days, The first, held in the fall, hosts high school juniors and seniors and com- munity college students. The second Raza Day, held in the spring, hosts junior high school students as well as freshmen and sophomores in high school. In addition, there is a special Raza Day held in Los Angeles for high school students only Today ' s attend- ance rates approach 1,600 potential university students. On Raza Day in spring 1993, more than 30 workshops were held The workshops address such topics as the 1992-93 ANCFFORTTO PCMYSTIPr HICHCK EDUCATION - CONCimiALIZtD, ORGANIZED AND REAUZED BY RAZA 156 The Raza Recruitment and Re- tention Center Is a unifying point for the campus commu- nity. " We always need more people, " according to coordi- nator Chris Reyes, " but the community always comes through. " application process and admissions (in the fall), financial aid, campus life, identity issues, iiealth, Chica- na Latlna issues, and careers. Gen- erally, Raza Day events include a keynote speaker, workshops (each student attends three), slide shows of the Col campus, lunch, and enter- tainment such as rappers, Aztec dancers, and Ballet Folklorico. Past speakers have included actor Ed- ward James Olmos ( " Stand and De- liver, " " American Me " ) and Los An- geles community leader Sal Castro, who led the largest high school walk- outs in the history of the United States when he felt that the needs of the students were not being met. The goal of the center ' s outreach events, according to coordinator Chris Reyes, is to encourage these students to attend a four-year uni- versity. Of course, the center ' s vol- unteers and interns can answer more direct questions abo ut campus life at Cal itself, but they stress the impor- tance of going to any university, not necessarily Cal. And all students are welcome: those touched by the center range from at-risk students on the verge of dropping out of school to honors students already pursuing college-prep programs. The recruitment component of the center sponsors recruiting trips throughout the Bay Area, Southern California, and the Central Valley, In addition, a fall orientation is provided for new students at Cal so they may meet others with similar backgrounds and goals. The center also sponsors the annual spring Chicono Latino Family Picnic, held at Clark Kerr for current and incoming students and their families. The retention program provides tutoring, study hall, scholarship and exam files, as well as the Camarada program, which matches Incoming freshman and transfer students with continuing Cal students. The center Is funded by campus agencies and outside community groups, including the ASUC, the Dean of Student Life, Chlcano Latino Agenda, and Hispanic Chambers of Commerce. Students may serve as interns (who obtain units through the Chicono Studies Department), as well as paid and volunteer staff. Reyes stresses that the center Is not really a club or group, because there is no " membership " really, but simply an office for " anyone in the community who wants to work on these issues " According to Reyes, " We always need more people, but the community always seems to come through. " So far, schools such as San Jose State, Cal State Hayward, Sacramento State, and Stanford have modeled centers and Raza Day events after Cal ' s The services these centers provide for the Chlcano Latino community go a long way toward realizing the professed goal of Raza Recruitment and Retention: " to demystify higher education.

Most of the injuries in rugby are surface wounds — cuts, scratches, broken collar- bones. . . " — Jeff Chenu, Cal Rugby Text by JenI Temstrom Photos by Ethan Jonson OUR MUDDY GOLDEN BEARS CJ Ru btj Wua Tksvo TM Ndliom£ Clujuupirnkf) y mom cringes every time she watches me play, " Cal rugby ' s flanker, senior Jeff Chenu says, grinning. " She ' s always telling me to wear my mouthpiece and to keep my ears taped. " (Many forwards tape their ears with electrical tape, like a headband ... " " ,. " u ' ' ecause in the scrum there ' s so much frict on on the ears.) The basic idea of the scrum is to pack all the players together and then roll the ball into the middle of it; the mad scramble that follows determines possession of the ball. Still, as prop Ray Lehner, also a senior, explains, rugby ' s not that violent a game. " There ' s a lot of tackling and hitting that goes on and a lot of people that don ' t know anything about the game, they just hear " rugby " and they associate that with this violent game " I like to think of it as controlled aggression, " Chenu says. " Most of the injuries in rugby are surface wounds — cuts, scratches broken see more neck injuries and things like that. Whatever the players say, the game looks hard as I ' m watching a muddy match between Cal and the University of British Columbia at Strawberry Field. The tight-packed scrum, which opens many plays, is the most contact I ' ve ever seen in a contact sport, and by the end of the first 1 5 minutes, most players i are so caked with mud it ' s hard to tell who ' s who. The game was invented one day at Rugby School in England, when a soccer player picked up the ball and ran with it, and the players use every inch of their bodies to advance the ball and stop their opponents. On this drizzly afternoon, about a hundred rugged fans have made the trek up the hill behind Memorial Stadium, one in a wheelchair and two on crutches. " We have a loyal following, " says Chenu. In addition to students, many parents and alumni come to games, and the crowd can swell to as many as a thousand for a big contest like Stanford. (Who, by the way. Cal beat again this year for their fourteenth straight victory.) Statistics about Cal rugby are often counted in years instead of by the season: as the oWest varsity sport at Cal (since 1882), rugby has a long history of tradition, excellence, and ardent fan support. " We ' ve had such a winning program that it ' s really satisfying, " Chenu says. " It ' s a team sport in every sense of the word, " Lehner says. " On the football team you have a hundred guys, and a kicker may not know a defensive back at all. But we know every guy on the team. " (The rugby team carries about 50 players.) Chenu agrees. " We ' re a really close-knit group of friends, and the camaraderie between all the players is another thing that has really kept us nature of the game may also contribute to this closeness: each player plays offense and defense, every player can pass the ball and every player can score. The 15 players on the field play two 40-minute halves, with few substitutions except for injuries. " You ' re depending on every guy to make it the whole way, " Lehner says. Despite the game ' s hard-hitting reputation, Chenu says, " a lot of people like to say it ' s a gentleman ' s game. When we play against v another team, we ' re trying to crush eachother on the field, but afterwards there ' s a tradition that you host the other team — you feed them and put on a kind of party for them. It ' s not like football or other sports where you just come to play and then go your separate ways. " Because of rugby ' s intemational popularity (It spread with the British Empire, and Lehner likes to think of it as " the contact sport j. the rest of the world plays " ), rugby players have the opportunity to . make friends all over the world, ' ' it ' s kind of like an intemational fraternity, " Lehner says. jM The Golden Bear ruggers continued their tradition of excellence this year, grabbing the Pacific Coast Collegiate Championship title In April, and steaming on from there to win the USA Rugby National Collegiate Championship. In the final match, Cal de- ' molished Air Force 36-6, winning their tenth national title in the Championships 14-year history, and their third straight title in a row. The Bears finished their season 20-2-1, outscoring their opponents 848-170. . Dave Codevilla m) lumps for the ball. Andre Bachelet (right), votod A Most Valuable Player at Nationals.

" Pam Nel- CM (bottom left) was diis sea- aw ' s lap leMiis player. CAL ei ew everal attempts at forming women ' s rowing clubs have been reported from as early as the 1910s. Cal ' s women ' s crew as we know it today was es- tablished by Daig O ' Connell in 1973, when it began competing intercollegiately as a var- sity sport. One of the better West Coast crews, Cal ' s women ' s varsity crew won the national championship in 1980. Men ' s crew, on the other hand, has been around since 1869, and won its first inter- collegiate championship in 1899. In 1928, 1932, and 1948, Cal ' s crew was considered the best collegiate crew in the country, which in those days meant going to the Olympics. The boats from Cal won gold medals in all of those years. Crew ' s biggest races are the San Diego Crew Classic, in April (women ' s varsity 4th and men ' s 5th in ' 93), the PAC 10 ' s in Sac- ramento in May (Cal typically places 2nd or 3rd), and two duals: with Stanford (this year defeated by Cal in every race), and with Washington, their big rival, who has won first place in the PAC 10 ' s for the last few years. This year, the men ' s and women ' s crew merged funding and boathouses. The men ' s team is fairiy young, and most will be re- turning next year. Women ' s crew welcomed back Shannon Day (front, above photo) this year, who has been rowing with Cal for sev- eral years but took last year off to go to the Olympics (the U.S. team came in 6th). by Wendy Harder a dMAim Ron Abta Economics John Accinelli EECS Leah Acosta Mathematics Meileen Acosta Integrative Biology Osvaldo Albornoz Shawn Alfaro Ricardo Alva Jose Alvarellos Michelle Amador Political Science PACS English Business Administration Physical Science Political Science Amani AMagId Integrative Biology Paul Ambrosio PEIS Avani Amin MCB Arlene Amores Integrative Biology Michelle Anderson Sociology Mark Anten PEIS Richard Antonini Economics Andrea Aquino Political Science Dennis Aquino Anthropology Randolf Arguelles Philosophy n T I Heidi Arizala Psychology Gonzalo Arrizon English Dorkhany Arsala Sociology Miles Atchison Anthropology Yat-Cheong Au Integrative Biology East Asian Languages Ko Aung Jonathan Ayers Chemical Engineering Film Tamara Babarovic Social Welfare Jim Baie Mathematics Jon Bain R.

You are to be congratulated on your accomplishment. May your highest aspirations be achieved. Dated at Berkeley, May 1993 PRhMDtNI Oh IHE UNIVERbin I t J( t 1 lllR M BERKELEY UFE after cm by Wendy Harder H suppose that once, in that mythical pre-recession Golden Age, Cal students actually had Jobs awaiting them at graduation, and may have even looked forward to graduating in four years. Now, aside from prolonging one ' s entrance into the Real World by going to school an extra semester, which all too easily stretches into an extra year, what can a graduating senior do? Graduate school. Two words that can give a desperate senior a reason to live, a hope that there is a possibility of buying a house before age forty and actually one day having medical insurance. While it ' s true that there is a glut of MBAs and lawyers these days, graduate school still represents a ticket to somewhere, if only to avoid the ominous presence of the Real World for another four years or so. Of course, no one should jump into a career they are not sure they want, and I am not suggesting anyone do so. But in a time when bachelor ' s degrees for the most part no longer carry much weight, it is a good idea to be well-informed about what kinds of graduate degrees are out there. To this end, there are several centers on campus students should become familiar with. The Occupational Library in the Counseling Center (in the new Tang Building, 2222 Bancroft Way) and the Career Planning and Placement Center (Banway Building, 2111 Bancroft Way) both have libraries with plenty of information about many different career options. Pre-Graduate and Professional School Advising (also at 2111 Bancroft Way) is the source for preparing oneself for graduate school. Information about obtaining Tetters of recommendation, writing statements of purpose, application procedures, test preparations, and admissions rates for various schools can all be found at PG PSA. One of the best sources of information about the graduate schools themselves is the annual U.S. ' eitis c World Report graduate schools issue, which usuallv comes out in March. The following information is taken entirely from the March, 1993 issue and from PCi PS. materials. Business School Any major is okay, but a foundation of basic courses is helpful. This includes courses in calculus, statistics, accounting, computer science, and economics, as well as English and rhetoric courses to develop commu- nications skills. The Graduate Management Admis- sions Test (GMAT) is required for most schools. Letters of recommendation, skewed more towards employers than professors, are extremely important, as is the personal statement. And, of course, (jPA is a factor. Often, about two years of work experience in a responsible position is required. Top 10 Baainess Scliools 1. Harvard L ' ntveRity 2. Stanford University 3. tjnivcrsity of Pennsylvania (Wharton) 4.

Source: U.S. News World Report, 3 22 93 Law School The two keys to getting into law school are good grades and a high Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score. Course work should nunure the ability to read well, write well, and think critically and analytically. Courses about business, economics, and human in- stitutions provide valuable knowledge of the context of legal problems. The LSAT and grades usually make up 60-100% of the total points for admission. Letters of recommendation, usually from professors, and a personal statement, are also required in most cases. Top 10 Law Schools 1. Yale Llnivei ity 2. Harvard University 3.

Georgetown Univcnily Medical School GPA, considered separately as science GPA and non-science GPA, is very important. Required courses include calculus, a year of general chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, a year of physics, a year of introductory biology, and perhaps extra courses in biochemistry or physical chemistry. The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is very challenging and requires much preparation. Try to take a small class or do individual studv or lab work to get to know professors, which will make your study much more meaningful as well as expand your range of contacts for future letters of recommendation purposes. Usually, letters from science and non-science professors are both re- quested. Personal statements and interviews are also very important. Prc-Gradtiate and Professional School Advising has a special prc-medical advising program to help students determine whether med school is the ngh; career choice, and to assist with the application process.

The Man Behind the Debbie Yuan y father has always had a tough time explaining his work to the family at ner table. " So Ted Lee describes in the lia Monthly (Dec. 1986) about his Nobel le father.

He became versify s fifteenth recipient of this dis- ned prize and its eighth in chemistry. s also honored as this year ' s Faculty Tjh Lecturer. is Yuan Tseh Lee, the man who first iji about America from the silver screens lywood before coming to Berkeley in 5 a graduate student from Taiwan and ter did research with Professor Dudley i ach on the crossed molecular beams 1 that eventually led to the 1986 Nobel 1 Chemistry?

" Not a man to bear grudges, Lee " did the gentlemanly thing: he courted her and married her. " (Lee, T. California Monthly) " He spent most of his time on school work, and he didn " t go out that much, " " Bemice Wu Lee recalls. " My roommates kept asking me what I saw in him. I saw the goodness in him. He was quiet and very idealistic, he talked about man and thought about the common good. " ' Beginning with a phonecall notifying the Lee household that Yuan Lee had won the Nobel Prize at 6:30 a.m. on October 15, 1986, Lee ' s life changed forever. At the time, he was away at a conference in Los Alamos, New Mexico where he had given a lecture the previous night. At the hotel in which he stayed, every- one who passed by congratulated him. Lee remembers his naivete. " 1 thought, gee, my lecture must have been really good " When he finally heard that he was being congratulated for receiving the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, his first response was: " Are you joking? " He recalls that subsequently " ' no one would ask about chemical dynamics, " but two questions always came up: " Did you set your mind to win the Nobel Prize when you were young? How did you become so successful — is there a shortcut? " " Although Lee spends most of his time at the lab with his research group, he periodically sits in on a freshman lab and teaches a graduate course on chemical kinetics. He has also fol- lowed his other passion and picked up his career in baseball by playing in the College of Chemistry Softball league with his re- search team of mostly graduate students, the Black Flag. " Certainly you have to play and study, " says Lee. " If you find what youre interested in, youU be very good at it, and life will be enjoyable. " " He does admit that " science is more fun than baseball. ' " Upon receiving the Nobel Prize back in 1986, Lee knew that his life wouldn ' t be the same. " I realize that people will expect a great deal from me and look to me to take the lead in chemical reaction dynamics. " However, he attests, " Winning the Nobel won ' t make me superhuman. " Indeed, to his children Ted, Sidney, and Charlotte Lee, dad will be " the same person who likes to turn mangos inside out, who watches the 49ers on " TV, and who plays gin with them and Softball with his colleagues. ' " 209 ACROSS THE PLANET LirlVIn The territory of Yugoslavia for centuries was a battleground between the Austro-Hungarian and Ot- toman empires. In 1918, the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was declared, and in 1929 it was renamed Yugoslovia. The new country was torn by demands for autonomy by Croatians who opposed Serbian domination. Of the 24 million people living there. Serbs account for about 36 percent and the Croats for about 20 percent of the population. Other Slav groups are the Slovenes, 8 percent; and the Montenegrins, 3 per- cent. Ethnic Albanians make up 9 percent of the population. This ethnic diversity has been a source of strife for centuries. President Tito, who ruled from 1945 until his death In 1980. kept a tight lid on these internal ethnic rivalries. Since his death, however, central power has been eaten away by the feuding republics. This war that left thousands dead has sent more than a million fleeing and led to the creation of dread- ed detention camps, likened to those of Nazi Ger- many. T SW»JA ' HilNtAR.y l »(tll ' SK •MAMU t CROATIA NifrMUtiA AM» V V V yvt ii viA IT A kXi Three months after the world woke up to one of the worst famines in history, food started to reach hundreds of thousands of Somalis. Estimates of the dead range from 100,000 to half a million, but no one knows just how many have perished in the " Horn of Africa " nation. The Central Bay region of the country has been most affected. It served as the main battleground for clans fighting for supremacy after Siad Barre ' s ouster. Consequently, its harvests were most dis- rupted and its people most uprooted and dis- placed and left in great jeopardy. More than a million Somalis have fled their homeland for refugee camps in neighboring coun- V5i Uliai UMBIJ ETHIOPIA 7 " 7 tries, with the wealthier ones seeking safe ha- ven in Europe, the United States, Canada, and elsewhere. Central Somalia is where the international community has concentrated its relief efforts, with airlifts to the towns of Belet Huen, Baidoa, Bardera, and Hoddur, and airdrops to smaller villages in the region. Many have died in the factional fighting that has driven the nation since former leader Siad Barre ' s ouster. Casualty estimates range from conservative figures of 10,000 to the 60,000 estimated by the human rights group Africa Watch. ACROSS THE PLANET ACROSS THE PLANET Is it political persecution by the military or desparate pov- erty, as the former Bush ad- ministration suggested, caus- ing Haitians to flee their homeland and seek asylum in the United States? Initially, the Bush administration accepted the ref- ugees at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and heard their requests for asylum. About 27,000 of them v ere denied asylum and returned to Haiti. On May 24, 1992, former President Bush decided that Coast Guard cutters would intercept the Haitians at sea and immediately return them to their country. The Hai- tians could apply for asylum only through the U.S. Consulate at Port-au-Prince. Lawyers representing the Haitians filed a lawsuit to challenge the policy while boat traffic from Haiti virtually stopped. President Clinton, who supported the Hai- tians in a campaign pledge, instead continued Bush ' s policy of returning the refugees. Activists came out in support of approximately 200 refugees who were found to be HIV-positive and were held in an internment camp on Guantanamo Naval Base. Prevented from entering the U.S. due to this country s ban on HIV-positive immigrants, the refugees were supported by hunger fasts and protests on college campuses across the country. r A grim new vision of the world AIDS epidemic predicts that more than 25 million people will have the disease by the end of the decade, and up to 120 million will be infected. In some urban areas in the U.S., AIDS is now the number one killer of young men, and the number of women contracting the disease is rising. The study, released by Har- vard University researchers, goes far beyond projections from the World Health Organ- ization. It envisions an explo- sive, disastrous spread of the disease, particularily in Asia. Amsterdam, Netherlands, hosted the largest gathering of AIDS experts in July, but there were no breakthroughs in halt- ing the deadly sweep of this virus. The 12,000 participants had the opportunity to hear some 1,000 speeches and dis- cussions on virtually every as- pect of the disease, from novel combinations of drugs to the pace of viral mutations. Nothing approaching a cure — or even an effective treat- ment or vaccine — emerged from the week-long meeting. Marking losses here in the United States, people signed panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt in New York. The Quilt, as part of a 35-city national tour, also made a stop in Pauley Ball- room on the UC Berkeley cam- pus (see pg. 118). ACROSS THE PLANET WESTERN HEMISPHERE 1a% V ■ ■f% NAFTA Former President Bush, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and Mexican President Car- los Salinas de Gortari participated in a ceremony in October 1992 to spotlight an agreement designed to create the world ' s largest and richest free trade zone. NAFTA would remove all trade barriers in North America over 15 years. Proponents say the agreement will create jobs in this country, but opponents said It could cost up to 550,000 U.S. jobs. SiSS After serving as the governor of Arkansas for several terms, William Jefferson Clinton and his running mate Al Gore swept the presidential election in No- vember, 1992. Initially hounded by charges of Infidelity, and smeared as " Slick Willie " by his foes, Clinton was able to garner support from a coalition of mi- norities, Reagan Democrats, middle and working class folks, and gays and lesbians, beating out incumbent President Bush and spunky outsider, millionaire Ross Perot. After twelve years of Reaga- nomics, and a sense that gov- ernment was growing Increas- ingly out of touch with the country, a majority of Americans, and record num- bers of younger voters, sought change. Perot Initially enjoyed strong support, but after briefly dropping and then re- turning to his campaign, he was never able to recover lost momentum. Clinton, hailing from " a place called Hope, " Im- pressed voters with his sincerity and his human touch " as demonstrated in the three presidential debates, outshining the increasingly pallid Bush. Supporters of abortion gained a powerful ally in the White House, with the election of pro-choice President Clinton. One of Clinton ' s early actions was a repeal of the " gag rule " which had pre- vented staff in federally funded family planning clinics from discussing abortion. Clinton ' s election also opens the door for other abortion methods, among them RU-486 , the oral medication which induces abortion in early pregnancy. Violence perpetrated by abortion protestors es- calated when Dr. David Gunn, who performed abortions at several clinics in Florida, was shot by an abortion opponent outside of a clinic in Pen- sacola, Florida on May 10. David Koresh, a Branch Davidian who had travelled the world seeking followers and fame, settled in a compound in Waco, Texas with more than 100 of his faithful. ATF agents had been keeping track of Koresh for several months, and took action in February when reports of child abuse and stockpiling of illegal weapons became overwhelming. The initial offensive resulted in the deaths of four agents, amid charges that Koresh had been tipped off. Attorney General Janet Reno took responsibility for the failed attack, after which the FBI was brought in. Agents blared Christmas carols and Tibetan chants on loudspeakers outside, hoping to annoy Koresh into surrendering. The FBI ultimately rammed a tank into the side of the compound, after which the entire building went up in flames. Survivors charged that the tank had knocked over lanterns inside, while agents reported seeing cult members lighting fires within the compound. OTATOE " William Figueroa, 12 years old, a.k.a. he " potato kid " waited by a potato endor ' s cart outside the NBC studios n New York prior to his appearance on he " Late Night with David Letterman " show. Figueroa and his family were )asking in his new-found celebrity, jained in June 1992, after he spelled ■potato " correctly during a spelling bee nd Vice President Dan Quayle did not. I M i n I With a new attorney and a chance to testify on his own behalf, Rodney King again went to court in 1 993, charging four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department with violating his civil rights when he was stopped and beaten. Defense lawyers had the first trial moved to Simi Valley, an overwhelmingly white area. The defense was able to convince jurors that the officers, by hitting King with their batons, forcing him to the ground with their heels, and kicking him, were acting within police codes in order to keep him on the ground and prevent him from inflict- ing harm on the officers. Ju- rors found the officers not guilty on all but one count, sparking days of rioting and bloodshed resulting in over 40 deaths. The second trial culled a more diverse jury, as well as emotional testimony from King, and far less playback of the infamous video, thus minimizing the chance that jurors would grow numb to it. This jury found that two of the officers, Seargents Stacy Koon and Laurence Powell, were guilty of violating Kings civil rights. WESTERN HEMISPHERE WESTERN HEMISPHERE " I feel very good about myself at ttie moment. I am playing good tennis and I am fighting for my life out there, but I am coming through, " said Stefan Edberg, who walked off the court in September with his second straight U.S. Open title, the worlds No. 1 ranking and $500,000. Top-seeded Monica Seles (left) also won her second straight U.S. Open women ' s singles title, again earning $500,000. " We stopped the chop, ' or " The chop stops here, " shouted revelers referring to the Atlanta fans ' ritual after the Toronto Blue Jays took baseball ' s championship outside the United States for the first time ever, beating the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in 1 1 innings in Game 6. - ' -I 301 m ALADDIN m LEAP OF FAITH gel W GOOD MEN 1] CHAPLIH IpgI MALCOL M X m THE LOVER S 1992-93 was the Year of Grunge. Buoyed by the popularity of " Seattle bands " like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, hair got messier, flannels got dirtier, and music got heavier. " Beavis and Butthead, " car- toon video hosts on MTV, carried vulgarity and mucous to an art form, while the " riot grrrls " and the success of female politicians across the country epitomized the reinvigorated feminism of the 90s. Hil- lary Clinton brought the notion of " partnership " to the White House, taking charge of the President ' s health care re- form project. " Gays in the military " became a catch- phrase in the media during the beginnings of the Clinton presidency, as supporters likened the struggle of gays and lesbians to the civil rights movement of the ' 60s, and opponents charged that allowing homosexuals in the military would weaken morale and lead to harassment of soldiers in tight living quarters. awo-sr w ■ ■ %.i ' Aa- Escorted by more than 1,000 private boats, replicas of Christopher Columbus ' ships arrived in the United States on Feb- ruary 15, 1992. as part of the 500th an- niversity celebration of his voyage to the New World. Miami, Florida was the first stop in a 20- city U.S. tour where more than 5,000 peo- ple cheered from docks and waterfront roads as the wooden reproductions of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria (pictured) sailed into its harbor. The ships, christened in Spain in 1990, were built wtih the same materials car- penters used to build the original ships. Hand-forged nails were modeled after some recovered from a 16th century ship- wreck. The sails are made of linen, the closest natural fiber to the original hemp canvas.
