Text from Pages 1 - 278 of the 1994 volume:

I i i ' % «. LAYING the GROUNDWORK With the foundation set, the seed of a vision great or small implanted, wonders can happen, making dreams take flight. Now go hears! Within every child is a bold, shining vision to go somewhere, to be somebody, to do something. Within every college stu- dent, a young voice, seasoned by years of academic discipline, yearns to speak out, " I ' ve gone to some place, I ' ve become some- body, and now I ' m going to do it. " Four years at Cal may just have bred the perfect laboratory conditions for the great- est experiment of all— the experiment of LIFE in the real world in a not so real college town-Berkeley, CA, U.S.A. Each of us, in our own ways, has come out with results from four or more grueling years of lessons at Cal. Learning, perhaps, not to trust long lines but to trust your instinct that taking Legal Studies 145 passed not passed was the right thing to do. Learning that what you hear on Tele- Bears is not necessarily what you get. Maybe it ' s learning not to trust the Regents or even your own roommate. No matter how times have changed from the moment you stepped on campus as a bright-eyed freshman to a more well- informed free spirit years down the road, every facet of campus life has formedtho kaleidescopic memories unique onl ' from Cal— whether it ' s mustering enough cour- age to chat with the Hateman, stopping to listen to a self-proclaimed orator on the steps of Sproul, or simply studying the art of restful sleeping under the laz ' sun. All told, U.C. Berkeley is the ultimate building block upon which we accumulate the experience, the expertise, and possibh ' the answers needed for the next big step and the step after that. „ , , . , —Dehbw Yuan Building the Foundation Tien, setting the model courts, a Bear-backer for " excellence through castles, and kids come gazes into the bleachers diversity, " signals Go togetherat People ' s Park, at the faithful Cal fans.

A place where the win- ters are not white but bright and sunny and the lawns are lush all year round. Where else could this but UC Berkeley. Sur- rounded by the beauty of the San Francisco Bay, not only are you getting a top notch education at the best public school around but you can ' t pick a better surrounding to lull into adulthood than here. Its beautiful sights are endless and e ' en when you be- come tired of exploring the " City " , Berkeley has a lot to say for itself too. Exploring the campus and the Berkeley Oakland hills can leave you with no desire to make the 1 2 hour BART trip to the city. At times it seems as though people migrate from around the state, country and the world to congregate here. But fret not, there will always be a familiar face around the corner. Whether or not it ' s your first time alone and independent from your parents, you ' re never really alone. Berkeley has the incredible ability to put two people from the same comer of the world, who have never met before in the right place at the right time to make you feel a little less home-sick when you ' re tired of the big Bay Area and long for home. -Lucy Tarin Yet another beautiful site in Berkeley is the moon rising above the International house that is at the base of the Ber- keley hills.

The essence of all college campuses is the student body. Within that student body lies what people claim to be the best years of their lives, and that is their stu- dent life It is in these few precious years that one forms the foundation for who they will be in their adult lives and what every- U I III I 1 1 l one dreads they will become.

These new structures are chang- ing the face of UC Berkeley, ushering it into the twenty-first century. ♦ It was in the nineteenth century that the first campus building. South Hall, was built. Opened in 1874, today it houses the School of Library and Information Studies. Just after the turn of the century, Phoebe Apperson Hearst, a benefactor of the university, created and funded an international contest for campus architectural designs. Emile Benard of Paris won the competition and his building plans were executed by John Galen Howard. The structures built during his tenure are Neoclassical in style and include the Hearst Greek Theatre (1903), California Hall (1905), Gilman Hall (1917), and Hilgard Hall (1918). Also, in 1913, Sather Gate was erected and in 1914, Sather Tower, Berkeley ' s most distinctive landmark, was completed. It was quickly nicknamed the Campanile because of its resemblance to the campanile in St. Mark ' s Plaza in Venice, Italy. ♦ Now, the same spirit of growth and progress that inspired the wave of construction early in this century has seized the university again. " All of this construction is going on right now because of the success of the ' Keeping the Promise ' fundraising campaign. A lot of money came in very quicklv, enabling us to proceed with projects that hiue been planned for a long time, " said Jeffrey Gee, Director of Design and Project Manager. The most visible construction work is being done on Doe and Moffitt Libraries, the centerpieces of the campus. The libraries are being seismically upgraded and connected together by a four-story underground structure. Additionally, a central glade is being created. " When you walk out the north door of Doe Librar , the whole area will be lawn, with no buildings, " said Gee. The work is being funded by $46.5 million in state dollars and will be completed in the winter of 1995. ♦ The huge, tangled Dwinelle Hall is being expanded to include two new floors that will relieve office cramping, as well as state-of- the-art computer communication. On the east side of campus, new research centers, computer labs, classrooms, and faculty offices are being added to the Haas School of Business. Eshleman Hall, McCone Hall, and Northgafe Hall are all currently undergoing seismic improvements. Another project being undertaken for safety reasons is the installation of larger fire sprinklers and fire alarms in Eshleman Hall and Martin Luther King Student Union. This is the only current construction being financed by student fees, according to Gee. ♦ Several new buildings are being constructed to house science programs. For example, seven-story Soda Hall is being built just west of Northgate Hall and will contain the Computer Coittimied on paj e W Comtruction cranes or the new Haas School o ) Bu6ine66 loom over the Campanile.

Funded by private donations, the structure will be ready in late summer 1 994. Just south of Hearst Mining Circle, the new Tan Hall will offer new labs, classrooms, offices, and storage space for the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering departments when it is finished in spring 1996. The current renovation of the Val- ley Life Sciences Building is the fourth project undertaken to upgrade the bio- logical sciences programs. This $73 mil- lion project is slated for completion by early 1995. ♦ Throughout the year, some students were bothered by the presence of the large, unsightly construction vehicles, the massive amount of dust cre- ated by the work, and the necessity of taking long, confusing pedestrian routes across campus. ♦ " It ' s really inconvenient forme because 1 have to walk across campus and the construction only adds to the distance, " said Elya Dominguez, a junior Business major. Students living in the dorms were even more directly affected bv the construction. In fall 1993, the Underhill Parking Structure and the field atop it were destroyed because of structural problems. It was re- placed by a parking lot with a 500-car capacity. Resi- dents of Unit 2 were subject to loud construction noises for the duration of this work. ♦ " Underhill was a real inconvenience. Especially when it was hot and we wanted the windows open. Then we couldn ' t study in our own rooms or even get a good night ' s sleep because of the noise, " said Araz Marachelian, a resident of Unit 2. ♦ While the playing field atop Underhill is now gone, two new fields are being constructed at Strawberry Field, north of Memorial Stadium. Meanwhile, Unit 1 residents had to put up with the Underhill project as well as seismic improvements and interior renovations being made to their own residence complex throughout the vear. The new buildings will soon become familiar landmarks of the Berkeley landscape first envisioned by a French ar- chitect nearly 100 years ago. The additions reflect the ever-increasing aca- demic opportunities of this university, while South Hall remains a solid reminder of the university ' s physical beginnings as well as the cornerstone of quality its educational system is based upon. W Student Life The life Sciences building reopened to stu- dents and faculty in Janu- ary after two years of renovation and seismic improvements. The structure ' s new look in- cluded a sun-flooded courtyard and increased classroom space.

Today, it is the teeming center of student life and to the advertising efforts of nearly every Cal student organization. From the ftriMition of alternative publications to student recruitment hv political and social :ia groups, Sproul informs the student body ot the diverse news of the campus and imunity. ♦ Although Sproul is an entertaining and animated diversion from the daily weight of Physics problem sets and two hour I ' oli Sci discussions, it can also be an aggravating and annoying place to pass through. Any student in a hurry to get somewhere would do best to avoid the place altogether. Nevertheless, on slower academic days, a jaunt through Sproul just may be an appropriate diversion. Here is a chronicle of a typical journev through Cal ' s most noted and notorious center: Destination: Zona Rosa. ..Departure time: 12:15 p.m. from Dwinelle Hall. ..Intended arrival lime: 1 2:30 p.m....

Scribblings adorn bathroom walls, desktops, stairwells, sidewalks and more across campus, expressing humor, anger, angst i r lovf « It seems only fitting that the University that sparked the free expression movement should continue to be on the cutting edge of free expression. Graffiti here, especially in women ' s restrooms, goes beyond the usual " Ian loves Stan " to include an open forum on everything from date rape to S M to ex-boyfriends to venereal disease to racist issues, and sometimes a combination of these. The issues discussed here, mostly sexual in nature, tend to fall into the " things you ' ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask " category, providing an opportunity for women to explore issues that embarrass or puzzle them in the safe anonymity of a locked stall. " u ' owW like some information on S M from someone u ' ho prnctices, " one hand timidly begins. the ivrltlns on The responses, some in cursive, some printed boldly, some attached by arrows to the original statement, trail off down the door. Another asks about the symptoms of svphilis-and those who know are not shy about answering. " .■; Satan real? " wonders a third writer. In this Dali-esque version of " Dear Abby, " someone replies, " Yes, and he ' s a UC Regent. " ♦ Others have penned statements instead of questions: the simple " War is menstrual envy, " and the final, exasperated line flung across all the others: " You ail need a good mental institution NOW!!! " ♦ Whether you consider graffiti vandalism or free expression sometimes depends on how you feel about the viewpoint it expresses, or whether or not you own the wall it ' s painted on. But what the wall about graffiti and self-expression as art? ♦ Richard Lists, a Berkeley landscaper, gained minor fame this year for his " New Sense Museum " (sounds like ' nuisance, ' he points out), a collection of Day-Glo toilets, disembodied mannequin parts and other " plop art " that quietly proliferated in the vacant lot at Telegraph and Haste for two years, until a citizen cleanup effort in November returned the lot to its weedy natural state. " Plop art, " a Berkeley original, isart " plopped " in a public place by theartist without all those traditional hassles like, oh. City of Berkeley approval. ♦ Lists ' impromptu art gallery soon attracted the work of other street artists and homeless people, who contributed poetry, sculpture and political slogans, among other things. Ulti- mately, whether you call it art or garbage, vandalism or self-expression may not matter. Since the first recorded graffiti some 4,000 years ago- " The Persians are coming! " scrawled on a wall-graffiti has been an unstoppable force. Mini-conversa- tions on bathroom walls; hastily-scrawled " tags " on city buses; minute expressions of tenderness, rage or school spirit; elaborate, heroically-scaled works of art- whatever form they take, graffiti and plop art seem to fill a void in our pre-formed, concrete world-the need to personalize your space, to let others know that you have passed this way before them: Ana y Paloma from Spain (Malaga) ivere here, 4th May 1993.

Has the fashion world been thrown into a subterfuge or have I just lost all sense of style? A little of both, I guess. Of course, as I get older I care less and less of what others think of my clothes; function before style, if you will. But the quest for individuality among 30,000 other fashion slaves has spumed most of us to dress as much for shock value as personal satisfaction and affirmation of our attractiveness. Standing out in a crowd has a good deal to do with diverging from the crowd.

In their 46- 17 romp over the Cardinal the Bears pulled out all the slops. The porous Stanford defense gave up 560 total yards (295 rushing, 265 passing), while Cal held the Cardinal offense to negative five yards rushing in the course of the game. While the entire team contributed with zeal to the win (four different runners, for example, went for 35 yards or more: Lindsey Chapman, Reynard Rutherford, Tyrone Edwards and Marty Holly), it was a day of strong individual effort. Senior tailback Chapman rushed for 141 yards, caught two passes for 36 yards (making him Cal ' s third- highest receiver), and became the first Cal player to score four touchdowns in a single game since Russell White. Placekicker Doug Brien, also a senior, booted four field goals for a career the 6even year total of 53, surpassing the school record set by Jim Breech in 1977. The defense, too, had their way with the Cardinal. Linebacker Jarrott Willard racked up nine tackles, while strong safety Ricky Spears tallied eight. Paul Joiner, Artis Houston and Ike Booth, among others, also distinguished themselves. " We played our hearts out today. It was our best game by far, " said senior defensive end Brad Bowers. At halftime, five Cal fans did some tackling of their own, taking out the Stanford tree. Stanford police arrested, cited and released the students, calling them the " Berkeley Five. " ♦ The halftime melee was only a preview of things to come. As the dock ran down on the Bears ' victory, police surrounded the field to keep excited fans from rushing. Cal fans responded by making circles over their heads with their hands and chanting " donuts, donuts. " Despite repeated warnings after the game ended that any unauthorized people on the field would be subject to arrest, Cal fans grew impatient when Stanford officials failed to produce the Axe, and eventually _ tumbled police were Berkeley clinging to Daily Cal onto the field in such numbers that the forced to stand back and watch as students tore down the south goal post, it " like metal filings to a magnet, " as editor XickPerlmuter put it in his column. " Frustrated police surrounded the remaining field goal like it was Fort Knox. ' Goal post, ' chanted the crowd, eerily. " Turf flew, the Band partied, and fans released six years ' worth of aggression in a wild, jubilant free-for-all. Stanford officials seemed almost blase ' about the whole affair: " We were reseeding anyway, " the farm ' s director of facilities, John Davis, said the next day. Stanford ' s rally committee finally brought out the Axe nearly 45 minutes after the end of the game, prompting cheers, more crowding, and general glee among the Cal players, who proudly carried the Axe through swarms of fans ♦ The hype and happiness continued the following Monday, when students filled Sproul Plaza to cheer the Axe, and the Band marched off through Dwinelle Hall, carrying the Axe and playing the Cal fight song. " This is pretty good, " said Bears ' head coach Keith Cilbertson. " It ' s about as good as it gets " jy j jern trom Student Life ♦ 20 An easy escape was all too common from the Stanford Cardinal as 34 heads for the goal leav- ingCardinal S52crippled on the floor.

I too took part in all the festivities because I truly eved that we were going to win. ' Mhat was last year. In 1992, we were the favorites. But, we lost. I was so upset by that betrayal, ( or at least that ' s what it felt like to me) that I swore I would never get too excited, until the fat lady sang. So when Spirit Week 93 rolled around, I feigned ignorance of all the events that were going on. Perhaps if 1 had some courage 1 wouldve actually donated some blood to the " Get the red out " blood drive. But since I do not like the sight of my blood (and am ironically pre-med), 1 passed.

So I and some friends went to Season Ticket and watched it on TV (via descrambling). Well, 1 can tell you this much. 1 was ecstatic that we won though I didn ' t believe it till the game was over (i.e the fat lady sang). It was then that I telt like kicking myself in the butt for ever doubting my team. But Cal ' s victory also gave me the opportunity to redeem myself and be as spirited as the sixth year senior who never thought he ' d see a Cal victory in the Big Came. 1 attended the Axe rally and took pictures with it and the whole deal. I even got to touch it. But I know, because I ha ve faith in my team that the Axe is going to stay here awhile. Sttidcut Life ♦ 22 - • •. • UfORHIA I A once in seven years opportu- nity!

However, most pwople do not stop to consider the specifics of such differences, nor do they see the many similarities between the two. We will examine these similarities and differences, primarily in the areas of food, maintenance, bathroom facilities and study and sleeping conditions. ♦ A. Food. Most students learn quickly the meaning of the phrase " good old fashioned home cooking " when they move into the dorms. Although repeated exposure to dorm food does not necessarily cause a student to involuntarily stop in front of diners called " Mom ' s, " the student usually finds the urge todiscover alternative sources of sustenance after a few meals in the DC. Home- cooked food, while not always the most appetizing, is at least familiar to the tongue, and made with the student in mind. However, with home-cooked food, opportuni- ties to seek out alternative food forms are much more limited than in the dorms. Indeed, some dorm residents have made " Pizza, pepperoni, extra cheese " their personal mantra [6660716 in and have gone out regularlv to cafes and other eateries such as Blondie ' s, La Val ' s and the Bear ' s Lair. • B. Maintenance. Needless to say, dorm residents do not even have a parent around to rehise to pick up after them. On the other hand, dorm residents are not particularly compelled to clean their rooms. This results in a pattern which involves infrequent trips to the laundry and the occasional borrowing of a vacuum cleaner from an RA. Dorm residents, though, are exempt from certain forms of maintenance; they don ' t have to wash dishes, clean toilets, fix water heaters, or mow the lawn. Thus dorm residents, finding maintenance responsibilities either nonexistent or uncoerced usually allow a luxuriant growth ot dirty laundry, old homework papers, pizza boxes, and other miscellaneous personal effects to cover thf room ♦ C. Bathroom facilities. A vital difference between the home and dorm bathroom environments is that there are no locks on bathroom doors. Hence a thin shower curtain is often all that stands between the bather and the world. Long lines, particularly prevalent in dorms with manv inhabitants, are quite common, leading to the formation of friendships among jjeople in bathrobes bearing soap. In a slightly related vein, the appearance of hot water in showers is not a given, but rather an occurrence whose probability oscillates between 50 and 99 ' , . ♦ D. Studying and sleeping conditions. Normally a dorm room houses anywhere from two to tour individuals, as opposed to the home room which usually houses only one. Thus the behavioral patterns of one roommate cannot but affect those of another. Studying is often disrupted by virtue of one roommate having a midterm next Monday and the other having no work and several friends. The same may be said for sleeping. In the first case, retreat to the local library is the only solution. In the former, nothing less than a gentle " Could you please keep it down? will do.

The University Students ' Cooperative Association (USCA) is made up of fifteen houses and three apartment complexes in the campus vicinity and houses over 1200 university students. Started in February 1993, the student housing cooperative at Cal is based on the Rochdale Principles. The Principles call for voluntary membership, democratic social affairs, shared capital, equal distribution and provisions for the odiication of members. ♦ Members are only required tt) pay around $1700 per semester for room, hoard and meals. The USCA is able to keep costs so low by requiring workshifts from all co-op members. In most houses, five hours of workshifts pe r week are required, ranging from meal preparation to gardening to cleaning bathrt)oms. Several levels of management are in effect in each house: the house manager, kitchen manager, workshift manager, finance manager cooperative and main- t e n a n c e managers all keep opera- tions run- ning smoothl)-. In addition, the Central Office, located at Casa Zimbabwe, acts as an administrative bodv for the entire co-op system. ♦ Some of the larger houses, like Cloyne, Chateau, and Casa Zimbabwe are notorious for their intcrestingf!) parties and virtual lack of clean spaces. The frequency of social events and the actual amount of time devoted to maintaining the cleanliness of each co-op are all decided by the members of the particular house. Some, like the all-female Hoyt Hall and the tinv Euclid Hall, are much quieter and cleaner, but don ' t necessarily guarantee members an active social life. Specialty houses, like the all-vegetarian Lothlorien, and apartment complexes, like Rochdale Village, offer students an alternative to the tra- tional cohahitatlon o p struc- ture. ♦ Speaking of his co-op experience, Ridge House resident trie Hall com- mented, " It ' s a cheaper wav to live within a student communitv. Although we have all the social benefits of living in a dorm, we also have larger rooms and fewer rules. " By offering students a more liberal atmosphere in which to live than is provided by dorms and other campus housing, the USCA is guaranteed a steady How of students into the system. A point system allows residents who have lived in a particular house for a period priority during room selection at the beginning of the fall semester. The close-knit atmosphere lets students get to know one another in a unique wav. " Since our co-op is our home, " said Hall, " we all have to share in the household responsibilities which gives us the opportunity to learn a lot about one another. I ' ve met a lot of my good friends in co-ops. " Lj. MciriCl Ch H VP7 Studeitt Life ♦ 26 Vt)Klv ' Sl?I :TS are an integral part of co-op life.

If you live in an apartmMt, of course, they are common concerns. Every month the bills come and every mWllrt ou and your roommates or house mates must sit down to determine who talked to Boston for two hours, who left the lights on all night, and who used all that water for a ten-minute shower. • Fortunately, figuring out the bills is an easy task compared to getting someone to take out the trash. Chores are a major problem for most apartment dwellers, since most have barely enough time to do their homework, let alone wash the moldy dishes in the sink. But somehow, the garbage does get taken out, and the dishes washed, but more as acts of desperation and necessity than acts of duty. And while the dishes are being washed, one begins to wonder: why leave the sweet sanctity of dorm life? All that seemingly free electricity and water, reliable meals, consistently clean bathrooms... the only thing to break such thoughts are the memories of what you don t miss. What you don ' t miss is living in a triple in Unit II, sharing a bathroom with thirty other people, and wondering if walking down to the dining commons for leftover turkey surprise is really worth all that effort. ♦ Usually the things that students don ' t miss from the dorm experience are the very elements that drive them into apartments. Those who move into apartments do so for various reasons: some get sick ot dorm food, others tire of the lack of privacy, and still others are flaky enough to forget to purchase a dorm contract and have little other choice. The most important reason for moving into an apartment, however, is for the independence and freedom that such a move symbolizes. Little problems like five vacuums and no dish soap may arise later, but the initial joy of finally being on one ' s own overrides everything else. Of course move-in day is the only time that the place will every really be clean, and the bills haven ' t come yet, either, so it ' s the best time to enjoy the independence before responsibility sets in.

Sure studying is a blast and TV., what a commodity. But still theTeeling persists; always lurking... the urge to party. ♦Maybe to some students ( OK, a lot of students ) partv ' ing may be priority Number » 1, but for those to whom studying is »1, partying is a break, a release if you will, from the hum-drum routine of lecture after lecture, assignment after assignment and reading chapter after chapter. ' " It gives me the opportunity to step out of studying mode for a while and kick back and have some good relaxing fun,, " says Ingrid Ochoa, a third year premed Biopsych major, betv ' een flipping tapes of Bio IB lecture. ' { ' But where, oh where, is all the action going on ( as if Cal Alumni and students didn ' t already know)? For those that are party- impaired, I will give you a brief summary. There is the ever famous fraternity parties (if you can get your name on the list or can pretend to be someone else, as I did to get into Psi Epsilon ' s March Madness party. " What ' s up Jennifer!?, " I heard as 1 was hurriedly pushed through the door. " Hey, don ' t forget to cross Jennifer Wang off the list " I heard in the distant background. Then there are the co-op parties where you never know what to expect as I ' m sure the audience of one band at a certain co-op party didn ' t expect to be urinated on by the female lead singer. Then of course there are the usual hang-outs, (aka bars) such as Kip ' s , Larry Blake ' s and Henr ' ' s and that ' s just in the south campus vicinity. If vou ' re willing to travel and have some money to spare you can always head out for San Francisco for a plethora of clubs bars pool halls etc. ♦ But then there are those that reach their satiety point by merely hanging out with friends and maybe having a drink or two. ♦ " ! would always prefer a small get together with some friends than a loud party, " says Randy Thompson, a second year undeclared. " How can anvone relax at a crowded party or bar with drunken fools gawking at you? I like it simple and cozy, that ' s my kind of parly. " So one person ' s paradise may be another ' s hell but in the end, we all satisfy our primal urges to actually enjoy college, even if it is " just a little bit, " or our main objective.

Back in high school, when you had a " high school sweetheart " and everyone was convinced you ' d last forever, things seemed so perfect. Well, things aren ' t that easy anymore.

" Instant gratification is the thing today, instant gratification, (imc Not to seem pessimistic, or anything, hut it seems that the older we get, the harder the whole " relationship " thing gets. I put the word relationship in quotes for a reason. You see, here at Cal [6660716 in there aredifferent degrees of rela- tionships. There are those that are publicly dating, and can be seen hangmg all over each other at every possibility, those who aren ' t afraid to admit they are committed for longer than three weeks. And of course there are those that are friends, but only because they used to be more than ' just friends " . Then there are those that claim they ' re just friends . Everyone else, however, is convinced they ' re doing more than just " being friends " . In all honesty, things aren ' t that bad. Even I ventured into the field of relationships, and in all honesty it wasn ' t that bad. There were its good points, and of course there were its bad. But in the end, I knew there was always someone who was there for me when I needed him (until we broke up, of course). The experience was definitely an educa- tional one. But don ' t be dismayed, there are those that really find their soulmates in college and live happih ever after. It just isn ' t as common as some people would like to think. And then there ' s the time in between meaningful relationships in which the desire for instant gratification ruins everything. There are just a few small tidbits of advice that you need to keep in mind if you ever find the " one for you. " 1 . Try to be friends before anything else. 2. Don ' t assume you can change him her, because you can ' t. 3. Make a lot of friends so they can console you when things go bad or you can brag to when things are great. 4.

It provided a fast, easy (and free) way of keeping in touch with friends, professors, GSls and others. ♦ Via UCLink, users could also access many campus services. The on-line library catalogs GLADIS and MFXVYL made finding books a lot easier. News groups offered informa- tion from fellow students regarding particular classes or student life in general. Most important for many was INFOCAL, the on-line Information System for the campus. It provided information about theScheduleof Classesand students could search for open sections, see what the waiting list looked like for a class, and see what classes had been added or dropped since the publication of the paper catalog. Also at the fingertips of Internet users was the global Internet network. Via Gopher, FTP, WAIS, and Archie, students could find anything from the latest weather reports from the National Weather Service to the CIA ' s World Fact Book. Users found information via Usenet News in news groups ranging from agriculture to China ' s political issues. Downloading the complete texts of Shakespeare, courtesy of Project Gutenberg, was also possible through the system. ♦ All these services didn ' t come without cost, however. Early in the first semester, the system suffered from a very enthusiastic response by the campus community. The number of people signing up to use the UCLink jumped from 23 to over 200 per day. The end result was that the UCLink stopped accepting new accounts in September, when the number of users hit over 8300. New accounts were being accepted during the second semester as a second machine was setup under the title of UCLink2.

One final event was offered on September 1st, however, that allowed new students to cut loose one last time before the impending doom of four years of finals and midterms set in. The Chancellor ' s Reception for New Under- graduates, held in the Martin Luther King Student Center, provided free food, games, entertainment and dancing to new students in what Chancellor Tien referred to as part of the " Smooth Transition " into college life. The Chancellor himself was on hand at theevent to greet and shake hands with students who were willing to wait in a fifteen minute line. Those who were patient enough were rewarded by the sounds of the Golden Overtones choral group, who stationed themselves in the Heller Lounge just feet away from the Chancellor and Mrs. Tien. Several campus staff and faculty were also present. Upstairs, in the Pauley Ballroom, the dance floor was packed. The event called for semi-formal attire, but that didn ' t stop students from jamming the dance floor in a frenzy of sweat and movement. The porch sur- rounding the ballroom was littered with weary students drinking in the cool night air as relief from the frenzy inside. Downstairs in the Bear ' s Lair, long tables lined with hors d ' oeuvres and assorted beverages greeted hungry freshmen, who social- ized and expounded on the liberating promises of college life. The Underground arcade and game room was opened for the reception, although, to the disappoint- ment of many, the bowling lanes were closed. The reception was agreed by most students to be a suitable introduction to Cal.

Although the UC Police Depart- mffit Sploys over 80 officers and 40 Community Service Officers, providing adequate service for over 35,000 people has proven difficult. Several programs have been implemented over the past few years to assist in preserving a safe environment within the University community. • Most recently, the Night Shuttle Service has been established to provide students with safe nighttime transportation both on and off campus. The Escort Express shuttle provides free service during the fall and spring semesters to students and 17 different stops throughout the campus area. The Southside and Northside Escort Express shuttles run Sunday through Thursday, with the Southside shuttle offering service on Friday night, as well. The stops include all the residence halls, the BART station, Moffitt Library, and the RSF. « In addition, the UCPD also offers a walk service that escorts students on foot between destinations. Uniform-clad, radio-equipped Community Service Officers are available to walk within fifteen minutes of a student ' s call. Other campus services include the Rape Prevention Education Program, which offers educational workshops outlining pre- vention tactics, and the Office of Emergency Preparedness, which provides tips and information to follow in the event of a natural disaster. Because of the high incidence of earthquakes in the Bay Area, the OEP has put on safety fairs throughout campus and at the residence halls to promote safety education. ♦ It is common campus knowledge that walking at night in groups less than three, especially on Southside, is not a great idea. Although good common sense is the key element in ensuring persona safety during the nighttime hours, the increase in campus safety measures has guaranteed that affordable and safe options are always available to students.

But very quickly afterwfards, I realized that the food stunk and completely forgot about the convenience factor. Although living on my own means 24-hour access to a kitchen and the food I ' ve selected myself, the fact that it hasn ' t been cleaned in weeks often leads me to flee for the streets. Add to that the frequency in which 1 onlv have half an hour to cat anything at all, and the times I go out for food increase. Whatever the cause for other students, we ' ve all set out at one time or another to the meccas of fast food available on the streets of Berkeley. ♦ Of all the things Berkeley is great for, convenient food has to be high on the list. Where else on the planet can vou get a huge slice of pizza and a Pepsi for under three bucks, or a salad heaping with more vegetables than you could ever eat paired with a sandwich too big for any mouth to tackle for around five bucks, or a bowl of steamed rice with dat ' id ylng the ternal i sauco for only 85 cents? " » es, .ill the-.e things and more can be found at Berkeley ' s various eateries. ♦ Interspersed throughout the streets surrounding the university and beyond are restaurants offering tastes to satisfy any palate in any cultural flavor. One of my favorite is Mario ' s La Fiesta on the comer of Telegraph and Haste. If you ever feel like eating good, authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go. At the same time, it ' s a convenient place to practice your Spanish with the waiters, who are all fluent. If Asian food is more your cup of tea, Durant Food Court, on Durant between Telegraph and Bowditch has a great collection of cheap lapa- nese, Chinese and Vietnamese eateries. If you ' re planning a trip to San Francisco, both Japantown and Chinatown of- fer the best and most authentic cuisine in the Bay Area. A great Italian dinner can be found at Lafc cnczui, on Uni ersity, or Late (.■un anni, on Shattuck. For bigger spenders, Chez Panisse, Spengers and Skates, all within a ten minute drive from campus, refuse to goeasy on the pocketbook. Of course, there ' s a plethora of cafes that scatter the Berkeley streets that can ' t be excluded. In most, like Cafe Strada, Cafe Milano, Wall of Berlin and the International House Cafe, you can get a mocha and croissant or even a soup and salad while you study or chat with friends. In some cafes, like the Musical Offering on Bancroft, you can even peruse and purchase collections of classical music. After trying all the local cafes, which could take you well over a month if you want to sample a different one every day, you can venture to spend a little bit more cash and tn.

The weekday mantra of " I can ' t, I have to study " in response to any offer of recreational or entertainment possibility can get a bit old after the 99th time it ' s uttered. It figures, then, that weekends have become the light at the end of the tunnel for most students. They ' re a time to sloop in, stay up late, hang out with friends, sleep in, party all night, spend an afternoon reading in the park, sleep in, hit the city for dinner, see a movie, sleep in, drown academic sorrows at Henry ' s, go to the concert you bought tickets for three months ago, sleep in, visit the Exploraforium, take a bike ride to the Marina, and, of course, sleep in. There are those weekends in which one has to study. Impending midterms and fifteen-page term papers force students to crawl to the library and huddle in a cubby or spend hours squinting in front of the computer screen. For the most part, however, Saturdays and Sundays are reserved as respites from the frenetic bustle of the week. While it isn ' t exactly accurate that our generation of slackers shirks work and responsibility all the time, the weekend offers us the opportunity to sit back, turn on MTV, sip a Snapplc, and do absolutely nothing. We take ad vantageof that opportunity, and we do it quite well. Cal provides us with a constant swirl of work, study and activity that, at its usual pace, can become a bit overwhelming. Weekends serve as the perfect counteraction, affording rest, relaxation, and the perfect balance of partying and peace. Iv " ■ ' «■ ;. ! - f-Z. ■■ ' t I ' lK T! 1 zrm 1 liiAtiu . .

In addition to the growing number of re-entry students who are coming back to school after raising their families, there are also a growing number of students who have married and or had children during their educational stay at Berkeley. For those enrolled students who are married, a whole range of services are available to their spouses. A La Carte Dining Cards, information at the Career Planning and Place- ts ment Center, couples and family counseling through the Tang Health Center, health services and insurance, housing rental listings, campus housing at University Village, library cards and RSF memberships are all available to spouses of Univer- sity students. ♦ An expanded list of services is available for student parents. Child Care Services among the most important. The system serves approximately 200 children, ages three months to eight years in five separate campus centers. Parents who bring their children to the center are expected to work two hours per week in a variety of roles, making toddlevd the system very much like a cooperative center. The Bananas Child Care Information and Keterral Service and TheStudent Parent Project are two community-based services that provide informa- tion about day care centers and bring families together to share child care and parenting information. The latter, based on campus in the Women ' s Resource Center, also assists in starting personal support groups among student parents. ♦ To help occupy their children while studying for midterms, parents can bring their kids to the Strawberry Canyon Recreation Area, which lias a play area and wading pool. The many parks throughout the Berkeley area are also popular locations for daytime outings, although many parents find it difficult to balance between the demands of a family and the demands of school. by Amber Withyccmhe A..

In order to avoid being just another SID imba itudents fend to get involved in activities to help them discover their own luaieinTne campus community. Unless you have a multitude of free time and endless energy, it ' s impossible to be involved in ever ' thing, so many students head for those activities with which they can most identify. ♦ Most of the time, these activities tend to be ethnic or cultural in nature. Many people view culturally and ethnically based festivities as separatist or discriminatory, but groups on Cals campus have proven that theory is incorrect. All the various get-togethers sponsored by ethnic and cultural groups, whether they are for education or entertainment, are provided to promote solidarity and unity among student groups. The main idea of festivals sponsored by culturally-based organizations is to have fun while meeting new people and sharing common experiences. The best thing about these festivities is that they are open for everyone ' s participation and enjoyment; they ' re not just for club members. ♦ My freshman-year floormate, Wendy, who is, as she says, half WASP and half Italian danced with SASA (South Asian Student Association) in a South Asian Cultural performance in Zellerbach. She looked pretty good in the sari our other floormates had lent her and it was exciting to see her and my other friends get up on stage and share their cultural traditions with a capacity crowd in the auditorium. The idea of involving as many different people as possible in a particular cultural ritual is to teach both tradition and tolerance. Because there is no ethnic majority al Cal, the opportunity to participate in cultural festivals is overly abundant. If ever you teel the need to take part in something culture-related, it ' s as easy as picking up the phone. By diversifying vour activities, you ' ll be participating in the cross-cultural tradition for which Cal is world-renowned. 1 hear Wendy is in Europe.

Gretchen Jackson re- flects upon her long battle to re- turn to school. ck to school For 30-year-old re-entry student Gretchen Jackson, earning a degree from U.C. Berkeley was much more than just a piece of paper. " My mom and grand- mother both worked at Cal but neither have their degrees, so to them it was very impor- tant that I get my de- gree, " says Gretchen, the first in her family to receive a B.A. Even more im- portant to Gretchen was making the decision to return to school. " 1 had to give up a nice big sal- ary in my former posi- tion as a marketing public relations assis- tant in Chicago, " she says. " However, after working 10 years, I felt 1 had the talent to do more. Many opportu- nities were closed off to me because I did not have a bachelor ' s degree. " " It was a long battle to go through, " recalls Gretchen, who trans- ferred from Hayward. " For those of us 56 over 25, we cry because we ' re so happy to get into Berkeley, " she adds. " I even framed my acceptance letter. " For the Interdisciplinary Studies Field major in international relations, being older than other students was a strange feeling in the begin- ning. " In the first semester, 1 thought my age would be a hindrance because I had to get used to taking exams and studying for finals, " says Gretchen. " Now I think it ' s positive to be older; I ' ve had more practical experience and since we choose to go back to school, we ' re also more dedi- cated. " Upon graduation, an offer at the Wells Fargo corporate head in commercial banking awaits Gretchen, who will also be getting married in December. " Get- ting a good, solid educatii n is the most important thing, " she says. " Now I ' m try- ing to convince mv sister who ' s two vcars younger to go back to school.

Unless there ' s a speed bump, not lor Daniel Tobias. Here ' s a man who defied the limits of the earthling concept of the 24-hour dav and took that monumental i.]uantum leap to redefine the meaning ot time management. The opening scene of Daniel ' s quest for two more upper division units outside his major began in Dwinelle Hall. In place of the lecture he thought he would attend was a two-week inten- sive drama workshop called " History Now. " And intensive it was. Daniel found himself writing a mini-musical- melodrama, casting the work, compos- ing the music, writing the lyrics and script, rehearsing it with three others, and performing it before an audience in Durham StudioTheater — all within nine days. He made time work for him in- stead and took a bit of history with him. Little did the rhetoric-turned music major know that when he first walked in on Roger Guenveur Smith ' s seminar, he was supposed to have an agenda. " The point of the workshop was to explore the relevance of history in today ' s context through perfor- mance, " says Daniel. " It ' s about discov- ering what history has to say about race and discrimination. " The opportunity came when ac- tor Roger Smith came to Berkeley to perform his own multi-media play Frederick Dok j ass Noic, a parable of his owTi youth based on the works of former slave and abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass. And so emerged the one unit seminar sponsored by the departments of dramatic arts and African American studies to coincide with Smith ' s brief stay in Berkeley. Following graduate work in African American studies at Yale University, Smith followed a ca- reer as an actor in theater and film. His recent film credits include Do the Rij ht Thing. Malcolm X, Deep Cover, and Poetic Justice. For Daniel and the seven other studentsfortunateenoughtostudy with Smith, theexperience was learning about self-discovery and needless to say, dis- cipline. " Roger taught us to solidify what we want to say and emphasized on the importance of saying it with sin- 66 Nine days before showtime, Daniel Tobias learned to push himself to get things done. ccrity, " explains Daniel. " The idea for my play The Strip- per was inspired by my favorite passage in The Gmpci of Wrath. " In the last scene from John Steinbeck ' s novel, the charac- ter Rosie offers her breast milk to a de- crepit, dying stranger. " 1 wanted to capture that compassion in it, " says Daniel. " So I came up with the scenario about a stripper at a night club who wanted to change for the better amidst the challenges she had to face in mak- ing the change. " For Daniel, the intensive drama workshop did not just end on day nine at the night of the showcase of all th students ' short works collectively called " The Way of the World. " He came out with one of the most im- portant of life ' s lessons. " 1 learned to push myself to get things done, " savs Daniel. The nine hour per week seminar also meant devoting 18 to 20 hours a week outside of class on nights and weekends. Other opportunities arose as a result of the ex- perience. After a directi r spotted him at the perfor- mance, Daniel since then played the piano for a music theater class to ful- till the other one unit he needed to graduate. He also found himself in an- other play. The Succesiiful Life of Three. " I never thought I would be in- volved in dramatic arts at Cal, says Daniel. " The workshop turned out to be a blessing. " -Debbie Yuan Seniors " When I tell people I ' m a nuclear engineering major, their first reaction is always ' Wow! Are you going to make bombs? ' " Nuclear engineering may be one of the most misunderstood disci- plines but for Yung Hee Lee, the misun- derstandings just double for a woman in the field. Yung Hee is one of five female students to graduate in a class of about 25 with a degree in nuclear engi- neering. As a Korean American, she finds herself in a bind — sometimes in several binds. " Korean guys especially feel in- timidated when they hear that I ' m in nuclear engineering, " says Yung Hee. " There ' s this Asian mentality that if a girl ' s too smart, she won ' t be able to get married. " She adds, " 1 wanted to chal- lenge all those ideas of what girls couldn ' t or shouldn ' t do. Like Star Trek, I wanted to go where no woman has gone, so to speak. " For the young woman whose dream occupation as a third grader was to be an executive secretary, Yung Hee now finds high-tech science-fiction ail the more glamorous. Science-fiction, though, will now become part of her realitv in the fall when she embarks on a master ' s program in nuclear engineer- ing on a fellowship at U.C. Berkeley, which ranks number two in the nation. " My dad wanted me to be an accountant or go to pharmacy school because thev were safer, more stable professions, " recalls ung Hee. " However, I refused. If I couldn ' t study nuclear engineering, then I didn ' t want to go to col- lege. " At her high school in South Carolina, Yung Hee first heard about nuclear engineering. " A professor from the University of Texas came to our school and spoke wonders about It, " she says. " That ' s when 1 became convinced that I wanted to study nuclear engineering. " Eventually her work may take her to power plants, for instance, and possibly involve de- signing the reactor core. Despite the popular fear for safety in the field of nuclear engineering, Yung Hee says that power plants in the U.S. are one of the safest because of the high safety standards and regulations enforced. Cultural traditions aside, ste- reotypes still abound for how engi- one has never done before. neers should look. " My friends would tell me that I don ' t look like an engineer because I ' m not that nerdy-looking or have greasy hair, " she recounts. On the other hand, often Yung Hee finds her- self in a class among 30 other male stu- dents in T-shirt, sweatshirt, and jeans. " Then 1 too would be wearing jeans. " Many of the female engineering students also share the same dilemma of wanting to fit in somehow as equals to their male classmates. " When I think about what to wear to school the follow- ing day, I always consider if I have engineering classes. This means refrain- ing from wearing more ' feminine ' cloth- ing such as skirts and dresses or even shorts, " expresses Yung Hee a bit rue- fiilly. The road to becoming an engi- neer is much more than the issues of clothes or not being able to relate to the jokes a professor ma v make in class. It ' s about following dreams and believing in oneself. " Sometimes I wish 1 could do something else, " confesses Yung Hee, who also enjoys studying languages and watching films. " It ' s not that 1 dislike my major; I just like all the other ma- jors. " But then again, life is like an adventure. One should do things which Debbie Yuan rules Engineering a path for women, Yung Hee Lee defies gender harriers and takes on the hoys Senior Spotlights 67 nowtng issue History- as it happens to Manuel De Santiago Manuel De Santiago walks into It turns out he was in Mexico City the yearbook office clad in jeans and a at the University of Unam the fall of 92, gray T-shirt.

Ever since she was 5 years old, En- glish major Suh-Jung Lee was certain that she wanted to become a doctor. Or so she thought. The transfer student from Los An- geles Vallev Collge came to U.C.

" Berkeley was a BIG pond. " Upon taking Or- ganic Chemistry, the course notorious for de- ciding the fate of manv pre-med students as to whether thev would go on in the field of medi- cine, Suh-Jung re-evaluated her goals.

Graduating senior Mona Freye reminisces about the day thousands of students sang in celebration of her 72nd birthday — or the " Mona Freye Day, " when she first entered Cal six years ago at the Cal Student Orientation (CalSO) for incoming students. When Mona receives her B.A. in English this year, she will ha e trium- phantly completed part of a long ardu- ous journey in her life that spans the history of 15 U.S. presidential adminis- trations since Woodrow Wilson in 1915. More than half a century later after leav- ing school, Mona has found the remark- able courage and energy to complete some unfinished business. " 1 dropped out after my first year in high school during the Great Depres- sion when my father died, " says Mona. " My mother was left with three chil- dren and no money so I had to work. " The New York City native remembers some tough times as a young Jewish American. " 1 was 1 5 yearsold but looked 18 so I lied about my age to get a job. " Not only that, discrimination against Jews was also prevalent in the 1930 ' s, at which time she found herself turned down from jobs because of her ethnicity. In 1941, Mona moved to the Bay area with her husband. She worked for 20 vears in sales before retiring. Her personal experiences have made her more socially conscious of the homeless and the underdogs. " I still remember the McCarthy era when everyone was labeled a Communist, " says the self- proclaimed activist. " That ' s why I ' m a believer in multicultural education. It ' s fightinga constant battle, " reflects Mona. " Hopefully we ' ll all be one someday. " Upon completing herG.E.D. at a Berkeley adult school in 1987, .Mona entered U.C. Berkeley as a re-entry dis- abled student. She still recalls feeling scared and " in ' isible " her first day at Cal. " 1 don ' t think 1 could have made it without the re-entry program, " says Mona. The program provides moral support and tutoring programs as well as resources for adjusting to the univer- sity. While maintaining a 3.5 grade point average, Mona also works as a peer ad ocate for the re-entry program despite suffering from painful arthritis. " I don ' t let that get me down although it ' s tiresome at times, " she says. " I ' ll be up at 5 am to take care of my disabled husband before heading off to classes. " The 79-year-old graduate has no trouble relating to students in her classes. " I ' ve been a teenager, r e been in my 30 ' s. I ' ve been through it all. " She adds, " My experiences were very gratifying. Now I ' d like to go back and help with the three programs that have helped me the mi st — the re-enfrv program, Dis- abled Students Program, and the finan- cial aid office. " The source of energy that has fueled Mona ' s lifelong devo- tion to living life to the fullest is perst erance. Perhaps the story of her life can be best described by author George Sand: " One is moving, it is true, toward the end of life, but that end is now a goal, •ind not a reach in which the vessel may be dashed. " -Debbie Yuan 90 Seniors Continued from page 68 " Knowing the Issue " forabout twoyearsdoingresearch, that he would send him his check as soon as it arrived. Well sooner than he knew it, Manuel was out of money. With his ATM card rejected bv the local banks and desperate, he turned to the phone and called up Professor Saragoza. Ap- parently, his check still hadn ' t arrived but Saragoza told him he ' d wire him some money ASAP. One would suspect that every- thing would be all right now, but recall, this is Mexico, not the US. He soon founcl out it took at least a week for money to arrive to obscure Chiapas. Hungry and without money, he was walking around town when he came upon a " puestecito " (i.e. a small taco stand). Well it turns out the man work- ing the taco stand liked his shirt which had Los Lobos a famous East LA band on the front and East LA written on the back. So he offered to swap him some dinner in exchange for his shirt after Manuel told him about his predica- ment. This makes Manuel jump into the topic of the kindness of the people of Chiapas who are mostly indigenous to the land. He tells me after he re- turned to the University of Unam, where he finally received his check, that he wrote a thank you note t o the hotel keeper who gave him credit and a roof over his head while he was penniless, or pesoless to be more correct. He also tells me how he spent manv a night just talking to the people ot Chiapas about their oppression and the injustices and discriminations they suffer through the Mexican government, wealthy corpo- rations and in estors. Obviously pas- sionate about his experience, Manuel begins to tell me how the people of Chiapas are part of an internal colonial paradigm. I assume this is a term he learned from one of his majors, or both (Sociology and Chicano Studies). Be- ing that I am neither, I ask him to elaborate. He jumps into a comparison of the plight of Native Americans. He tells me it consists of a people being conquered and forced to assimilate to the values and morals of their conquer- ors. Eventually, the people who were conquered are stripped of their culture because their only other choice is pos- sible death. I ' m surprised by the tone he ' s telling this to me, as if he wants to make sure 1 completely understand, but I ' m more surprised to hear him say his experience in Chiapas hit close to home. I wonder what he means, but he quickly adds that he is from East Los Angeles, and just as there is lack of edu- cation and discrimination in regards to people of color, there are exactly the same problems in Chiapas. After hear- ing all this I know he had to have some indication of the future uprising that was to occur, and apparently he did. As a matter of fact he witnessed some very interesting and important turning points that led to the uprising. He is especially elaborate about the demand for fair land repartition the Zapatistas made on Octo- ber 12, 1992 on the steps of what is equivalent to city hall in Chiapas with the dis- engaged statue of Chiapas conquistador, Mazariegos, which they brought down by force and carried it there, because he was there and gave us pictures to prove it. It all makes sense now. The Zapatistas, an organized group of the indigenous tribes of Chiapas that united in order to present a stronger front in their struggle for equality, are fighting to redeem their land taken from them by force. I reiter- ated this to Manual and he adds that it all comes down to land and its ' alue. It turns out Chiapas has the most valuable land in Mexico for its great amount of natural resources and that ' s why in es- tors and the government are so inter- ested in it. All this has been a learning expe- rience for me and I want to know more, but the focus here is Manuel and though his experience in Chiapas definitely changed his outlook on life, there is more he has to share about the rest of his life. So I ask him what he wants to do after Cal. He says he wants to give back to his community after he ' s done at Cal in December 1 994, and then he ' s off to grad school , hopefully UCLA, where he wants to study Public Policy. With those degrees under his belt, he wants to work with and in the community where he grew up. He adds with sincerity, " All the experiences. ...my whole academic career, everything has helped me see the kind of society we live in. The injustices and the inequalities are far greater than anyone thinks. By being in Chiapas, it makes me want to continue my education so I could give back and make changes in the barrios and help the illegal immigrants who I realized are also political refugees, just Uke the Haitians. " I end bv asking what he thinks of study abroad in general. He thinks it should be mandatory for stu- dents to take a semester off and study abroad so they could experience what they ' re learning in the classroom first- hand. Here at Cal you learn it from an internal perspective, but it should also he learned in an external, worldwide and very real perspective that could only be achieved by experiencing it first- hand. The emotion with which he tells me this makes me feel as if I ' ve missed out bv not participating in a study abroad program. But more than anything it makes me realize that even an ordinary guv from Cal can have an extraordinary tale to tell. It makes me somewhat re- gretful that wedon ' t ha eenough space in thisbooksothateveryone could share those experiences with evervone else. But for now Manuel has taught mea lot, and maybe you ' ve learned a bit too. - Lucy Tarin Senior Spotlight 91 the - source Whenever things appear to be going against you, just think of these few words.,.

Liz Zamora was proud to be a part of it for the past 5 years. - y For senior Liz Zamora, a French ma- jor, some of the most memorable moments were experienced in the Cal band. After meeting someone trying out for the band at a CalSO orientation meeting, Liz wished she could also join the band and par- ticipate in its many ac- tivities. Although she played the piano, which was not a band instru - ment, the dilemma was remedied bv taking up the glockenspiel, which she has played now for five years. Liz took les- sons from an assistant band director from UCLA, a fact which Liz considers ironicsinceCal and UCLA are such ri- vals. Being in the band required a great commitment: rehearsals every Tuesday and Thursday plus Fridays and Saturdas mornings during game weeks. The band members not only have to learn their music, but " continuity, " or the way they must march. Still, Liz relished the practice: " It ' s really fun and challenging, " she said, " because you ha e to memorize all your con- tinuity and music. Road trips were also memorable high- lights. Every year the band travels to South- ern California to perform at either the USC or UCLA game. Liz also got to go to Chicago and Utah for the NCAAs, all three of Cal ' s recent bowl games. " We won all of them, which is e en better, " she said. But even more exciting, of course, was being there when the Cal football team won back the Axe from Stanford. Besides playing in- struments, members also played games on bus rides. Liz remembered finally participating in an activity on the way back from Utah in which members " ran the gauntlet. " While band members ran from the front of the bus to the back, other members " flip " the band members. As a member of the Straw Hat Band, she also got the opportunity to play at fund-raisers, birthday parties, and alumni re- unions. Being on TV dur- ing games was also fun: " A lot of people come up to you and say, ' hey, 1 saw you on TV. ' " Looking back at her band experience, Liz feels that the most positive aspect of it has been the sense of belonging it gave her. " You have to find your little niche, " she said. With the banci came new friends, shared experi- ences, lasting memories — " It ' s like a big fam- ily.

Yes and no, most would an- swer. However fun those activities might be, we are here to study. Hence, we added a new section to this year ' s book. Aca- demics Greeks Organizations These might seem like three completely different subjects on the surface, but in re- ality they are no t. Each o f these sub-sec- tions offer s n opportuni j or miaents at Berkeley to grow, learn about themselves and their peers, and enjoy their years here. i Academics gives us a foundation upon which to build our future. Mean- while, the Greeks offers brotherhood and friendships and Organizations allow us to interact with our community. Each of these are essential elements of our intellec- tual and social growth at Berkeley, and Cal would not be the same without them. Scctum editor: David Grubstick AcademicslGreeksl Organizations Divider 111 classes at Berkeley academics cademics: what role does it play in the " Ber- akeley Experience? " Though UC Berkeley is about much more than midterms, papers, and projects, they are the core of every student ' s en- deavors at this university. Without a doubt, UC Berkeley demands a lot from its students, both before and after arriving here. However, after being admitted many students find themselves struggling to pull the grades they were accustomed to getting in high school. So what draws students to the tough aca- demic challenges awaiting them at Cal? UC Berkeley ' s reputation has always been a major attraction. UC Berkeley was ranked 19th in U.S. News and World Report ' s 1992-93 survey of under- graduate universities, making it the highest- ranked public university in the nation. Add to this Qver a dozen Nobel laureate professors and re- ources like Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Lawrence Hall of Science, the Hearst Museum of Anthropology, and the Pacific Film Archive, and it ' s B-asy to see why this is a desirable institution for tudents in a variety of majors. " I picked UC Berkeley for its prestige and ' ve had really good professors. People ask if I go to :ity or state college, and when I say Berkeley, they Derk up. I figure if students do that, employers will ook at me difTerently too, " explained Elya Dominguez, a political science major. Tamiko Nimura, an English major, admitted, ' buildins tH ' n AtoN for the Students laboring to build up their knowledge to support their dreams and aspirations I picked Berkeley unashamedly for its reputation, ' ve always thought Berkeley is comparable to the Ivy Leagues. The English major doesn ' t give me lots of vocational preparation but it helps me to learn how to think. And I get to study with some great did you know. •23% of students continue with their education after 4 years of Berkeley. 95% of students attending UC Berke- ley were in the top tenth of high school class. 20,281 people applied in 1992, only 43% of these students were accepted. Median salary after graduation: $24,624. Fall 1990 data: 3 most popular ma- jors: 25% social sciences; 13% humani- ties; 10% engineering. by: Julie mehta academics minds. " " Berkeley is a cut above - it ' s one of the best deals out there. Professors don ' t come up and hug you. You have to chase after them, but that ' s a good education in itself, preparing you for real life and the world of hard knocks.

' There aren ' t enough small classes and the trend is continuing away from them, " said Arman Rosencrantz, a conservation and natural resources professor who has taught at VC Berkeley for the last six years. Apparently, many find the opportunities here unparalleled and the academic foundation obtained here worth the price they pay. 113 academics one very BR bud set fe With tuitions constantly rising and budgets continuing to fall, we are all hoping to graduate sometime this century theresa rojas ave you bal anced your budget lately? It may be twice as difficult for everyone this year as belts tighten and students, faculty and staff are asked to bite the bullet. " I have to bal- ance my school schedule around work because the classes I need are not being offered, " says senior Robert Vega, who works an inflexible 25-30 hour a week job while carrying 20.5 units to make ends meet. Robert ' s classes in Chicano studies have been cut to the quick, and he has been forced to take as many classes as he can per semester, " because they won ' t be offered again and I have to graduate. " Classes in Chicano Stud- ies have become a scarce resource to the point where students must take what is available or risk never see- ing that class offered again. Chicano Studies is just one of many areas taking a major hit. Juliet Policarpio, an ISF major, has experienced the expanded classes and fewer instructor hours first hand, " It ' s ridiculousi At an ISF major, you have nc preferential treatment. ' Everyone is trying tc graduate and there simpK are not enough classes and instructors to go around. One English profes- sor notes, " You think our hours are short — have you been by the library lately — they close at 5 on Fridays! And just pray that you get your administrative red tape done; there are no 114 academics evening hours. " Indeed li- brary hours have been re- duced and students who would otherwise study or conduct research after classes or following work must look elsewhere for critical resources. In addition, admin- istrative hours vary any- where from 10-12 and 1- 2:30 to 9-12 and 1-4. Then you discover some office hours vary depending on the day of the week once you think you have the schedule figured out. Stu- dents like Robert who must work and carry large unit loads, are effectively shut out from reasonable access. Policarpio sums it up, " California is supposed to be the state of opportu- nity.

Most Cal students shop around before declaring their ma- jor. The final choice is usually the major that .students believe will offer them the most interesting classes. Berkeley senior David Tulloss, as is the case with many other students, changed his mind many times before declaring cognitive psychology: " I started out in the college of natural resources, then switched to anthro, and also tried linguistics and art before declaring psy- chology. " A good experience with a par- ticular class or professor can play a very important and decisive role towards choosing a major. Senior Carlos Roig- Franzia decided to switch his major to anthropology after visiting only one class. " I sat in an anthropology class with a friend and in the first fifteen minutes realized that is what I want to do. " Those who cannot find a single major that would satisfy their specific needs and interests can construct their own: the Interdisciplinary Studies Field Major allows students to establish areas of concentration in the humanities, so- cial sciences, or in areas that draw on both. Others take advantage of the vast variety of majors offered here by choosing a second major or taking classes towards a minor. David Tullos.s, aside from his psycholog ' major, has also taken on a creative writing minor because " these classes are far and above the best classes offered here. " Sarah Bliss, a senior history major, is also minoring in religious stud- ies. " I was always interested in religion. I took religious studies 90A with Hous- ton Smith which I loved. I have taken more religious studies classes since then, and decided to minor in it when I real- ized that I was only two classes aw;i from the minor. " Despite recent budget cuts, Ber- keley has maintained an impressive list of majors that seems to offer something for everyone. Regardless of which disci- pline students focus on. most agree that they are receiving a solid education and are happy with their choice of major. When asked about his major, Dave Tul loss appears to ha ve summed up how most students feel towards their final decision on a major: " It is treating me very well.

No one noticed when I spilled it, but nevertheless, I could not stop thinking about the juice on the rug. ..two minutes was much longer than I ever imagined. This turned out to be my favorite part of the orientation to the McNair Scholar ' s program. It was an original icebreaking technique, which made me feel ridiculous initially, but helped forge a friend- ship between myself and my buddy Nichelle Blackwell. Thus after having stared at each other for the longest two minutes of my life, we became friends, and with luck and hard work future co-faculty mem- bers. The McNair Scholar ' s Program is designed to prepare selected U.C. Berkeley undergraduates for graduate study at the graduate level. The program works closely with the scholars to ensure that they are successfully admitted to the graduate program of their choice, after completing an intense summer research project. The program was named after the late Dr. Ronald Erwin McNair, Physicist and Astronaut who died in the Challenger explosion in January 1986. Dr. McNair, an African-American, grew up in a poor community in the South, where he experienced discrimination early in his life. Despite economic and social obstacles, he pursued his dream of becoming a scientist and astronaut. In 1971, he graduated magna cum laude from North Carolina AT T State University with a B.S. in physics. In 1976, at just 26 years of age, he earned a Ph.D. in laser physics. Dr. McNair joined the space shuttle program in 1978, and was a mission specialist aboard the 1984 flight of the space shuttle Challenger. Dr. McNair received many awards for his work, including three honorary doctorate degrees, fellowships and com- mendations. In addition, he excelled as a fifth degree black belt in karate and talented saxophonist. Following his death in the Challenger explosion of January 1986, members of Congress provided funding for the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program to encourage university students with similar backgrounds, to enroll in graduate studies.

Selection is competitive, and applicants are expected to have a minimum U.C. Berkeley GPA of 3.0 and have completed at least 60 units. According to Arturo Nunez, one of the 1992-93 scholars, the program helps bolster confidence and belief in oneself, " I feel I am a much better scholar. " The official benefits include: a $2,400 stipend for summer research, research published in the McNair Scholars Journal, close relationship with a faculty mentor of the scholar ' s choice, research results presented at a national symposium, and the edge on gi-aduate school admission. Jin Park, another 92-3 scholar, has this advice for future scholars, " Get a head start and make the most of your experi- ence. Network, take hold of all the re- sources and it will all start to come to- gether. " Comments from other sch olars range from, " We had a gi-eat time, " to " It was a lot of hard work, " to " It was Hell! " Yet they all agreed that it was ultimately a rewarding and life-changing experience. Professor Julia Curry-Rodriguez, who mentored Laura Talamantes, asserts that, " No, working with Laura did not change my life. ..our mentorship did not change my life. ..our mentorship reinforces all that my professional life is about. " Ultimately the measure of success of the McNair Scholar ' s Program rests on the shoulders of the scholars. 1993-4 scholar, Christine Dominguez, comments, " The orientation made me feel comfortable. ..now I have to make sure I get into a good Ph.D program. " The McNair program provides the chance to do just that and more. academics 121 academics Berkeley ' s Education Abroad program not only teaches students about foreign countries, but life as well. being able to experience the beauty of a foreign culture and at the same time discover how far one ' s own ability and talents can go is a once-in-a-lifetime oppor- tunity. The Education Abroad Program (EAPi is one of the unique programs that makes this possible for college stu- dents. EAP is the University of California ' s international ex- change program. Approxi- mately 1,000 students from all nine U.C. campuses participate in the program annually and study at nearly one hundred universities in 31 countries. James Schenk. a fourth year senior majoring in psychol- ogy, chose to spend his junior year studying abroad in Spain. Students choose to go abroad for a variety of reasons. Many stu- dents choose countries that offer educational opportunities in their field of study. For in- stance, Italy is very popular among architecture students due to its Institute of Architec- ture and Academy of Fine Arts. For James, however, he, ' had always had an embedded inter- est in studying abroad; to be placed in that type of environ- ment and experience a different culture. " His mother is from Peru and he was raised bilin- gual, so the language barrier was not a problem for him. Cer- tudy- ing quotables abroad james schenk is one of the P g best things I ' ve done in my life... it is one of the most rewarding things you can do. tain programs for certain countries in the EAP pro- gram have language re- quirements, while many others do not. Students who chose to study abroad through the EAP program get the benefit of having all classes they take abroad transfer to Ber- keley for credit. Participat- ing in the EAP program is also very affordable. The cost for a year at 18 overseas centers I including airfare ) is less than or equal to the cost of one year at Berkel- ey. All finan- cial aid obtained is also ap- plicable to the EAP program . " I met a lot of inter- national students and at the same time a lot of other American students, which surprised me, ' explained James. Students all partici- pate in an orientation when they arrive in their country where regardless of which country a student chooses to study at, the opportunity to meet people from all over the world is concentrated in one place. " For me, I had a transition phase for a month and a half or two months, " says James, " Ev- ery little day to day thing seemed like a struggle. " For students who go abroad for an entire year, the first semester is generally not as enjoyable as the second. By the second se- mester, students have become more accustomed to the lifestyle and are just more at home with everyday things such as where to go to buy necessities and how to ask for them. Going abroad often changes student ' s views about their own lives. It teaches stu- dents about their own cultures and opens their eyes to things they might not have seen before or appreciated. " I learned to appreciate the beauty of every- thing, the food, the people, the climate, all the little factors that people take for granted, " said James. Students not only learn about foreign culture and their own culture, but also about themselves. James said, " One of the most incredible feelings you get when you study abroad is at the end of the year when you re about to come back home. It is the feeling of accomplishment that you actually studied abroad. Because, to do some- thing like that... takes a lot of inner confidence and inner strength. It is one of the most rewarding things you can hon- estly do. " 122 study abroad by: karen woo H |H H l academics 123 academics and combine to form one Students at Berkeley find out what the word " stress " really means through a mixture of classes, activities, and sports s the leaves turn from green to brown, and the a days become shorter, and the air becomes colder, students at Cal experience a phenom- enon felt throughout every university in the coun- try - the stress of impending midterms, quizzes, and ultimately, finals. Many students do not just attend school, but also hold jobs (to pay for con- stantly rising " fees " ), join school groups, participate in activities, and play sports. How can a mortal human be expected to cope with all of these stresses? Believe it or not, thousands of students do every year. Given all of this ten- sion, there has to be some kind of outlet for students to release their frustra- tions. And these outlets differ from person to per- son, be it relaxing in a cafe and watching the world, roller-blading down a dorm hallway at 3 in the morning, or punching on a tattered pillow (or room- mate). Or, as Ken Chu stated, " I ignore (stress). hen you attend a school like JJU Berkeley, you expect to expe- rience stress once in a while, es- pecially when finals roll around. and it goes away. " However, many students are not as lucky as Ken and find their stress just too much to bear. Kian Raiszadeh explained, ' I sometimes have so much going on in my life, I just can ' t take it all. Playing a sport like tennis can really put a strain on a person both physically and mentally. But I relieve my stress by running up in the hills above Berkeley. It is peaceful and I can relax. " Once finals are over, many people just relax _ _ as much as they can an recover their strength. Jena Valdez reveals, " Af- ter finals, I curled up with a plate of tuna, cracker and a coke and watched television. " Other stu- dents described how they slept, partied or " got wasted. " So, even though times might appear to be tough, Berkeley students pull it together and muddle through, coming out relatively unscathed.

Here is how some students responded to the question: " Where is your favorite place to study? " • Cafe Med: It is close to home and I never run into anyone I know • Denny ' s: It ' s open all night • Wall of Berlin: It is well lit and has food and drink. • Study? • In bed: I can spread out my papers and use my leg as a divider • Moffit: I like to isolate myself from the rest of the world by sitting at one of the cubicles • Eshleman: It is a great place to study because you can eat there. When I get hungi-y, I can go down to Telegraph and get some food • Doe: It is not as loud and stuffy as Moffit • Sufficient Grounds: It is a good place for people watching • My apartment: I ' d waste too much time going any- where else • The Dorm Lounge: Hell, it ' s close. Why not? • Any of the campus libraries • The laundry room: If I ' m stuck there, I might as well study • On my couch with nam and Kahlua • On my bed because it is warm and comfy • If I told you, I ' d have to kill you So if you find someone procrastinating (cleaning up their room, calling up old friends, or endlessly organizing and planning the work they need to accomplish), kindly direct them to one of the above locations. 3 on and on and on... amir rati academics 127 128 greeks greeks The Greek system gives students a chance to come together and meet people hke themselves away from the pressures of school. is it the life for you? h ecoming a member of a Greek house is a unique experience that cannot be found any other activity on campus. At a university as large as Berkeley, it is very difficult to nd a place for oneself. Shreyas Amin of Sigma Phi Epsilon said, " It ' s easy to get lost in a hool this big. The house provides a place at Cal where you can get close to people. " One ' the greatest benefits of a sorority or a fraternity is the " sense of community and the ipport group that it creates, " said Jennifer Elias of Alpha Chi Omega. Many students come a long way from home to attend Berkeley. Danny Campos who a Pi Kappa Phi said, " The fraternity is like a family away from home. It makes Berkeley little less impersonal and everybody in the house is always here for me. " Stephani Wong Gamma Phi Beta, added, " The people are here year after year. Even though people ■aduate and new members come, you know that you will see many of the same people when by: karen woo greek life 129 you come back. " In a Greek house, there is always something going on and always people to talk to and lean on. Being in a sorority or a fraternity re- ally allows students of different back- grounds to get to know each on a personal basis. Steve Triplett of Sigma Chi, said, " The house is very diverse and has given me the oppor- tunity to get to know people of other races really well. " The Greek system provides a multitude of opportunities for members to get involved in leadership positions and in the campus com- munity in general. Katherine Post of Kappa Alpha Theta said, " The house has been a springboard for me into the university and also a homebase. " " Being an officer in the Greek system is a good way to become a leader at Cal. There are tons of opportunitie to get involved and develop leadership qual: ties that may not be as available outsid Greek system, " said Shreyas Amin. Th Greek system is mainly governed by tw groups, the National Panhellenic Counc which represent sororities, and th Interfraternit Council. Eac ' house sends a repre sentative to meet ings of the council which discuss issue pertinent to the Greek System. Joining a house goes far beyond th Berkeley campus. Once one becomes a mem ber of a house, a student is a part of a hug nationwide, and in many cases, interna tional, network of sisters or brothers. Man houses offer programs that help college stu dents to contact alumni in search of job ofTen 130 greeks or internships. Alumni are always willing to help in giving advice and guidance. Perhaps Steve Golik of Pi Kappa Alpha summed it up best, " I have met a lot of my best friends in college here. This is a time in my life where I can do what I want. " greek life 131 greeks VriuVE got to Philanthropy has been tradition in the Greek system here for many, many years reek organizations at U.C. Berkeley have a long history of service and philan- thropy to the surrounding community. For many years, Cal ' s sororities and fraternities have been offering and providing services to different organizations, schools and individuals as a means of helping to promote strong community awareness and unity as part of the university community. Both the events and beneficiaries cover a wide variety of interests. Some houses choose to focus on children, offering tutoring services to help develop skills, and manual labor to refurbish damaged or worn parts of school buildings. Others focus on the environment, doing clean-ups and planting trees. Some houses address current issues such as AIDS awareness. Still others choose to diversify their interests through a wide variety of philanthropic endeavors. 132 theresa rojas greeks philanthropies 133 134 greeks greeks While several organizations prefer not to discuss their contributions, many houses have a tradition of service to the community. One house in par- ticular, Alpha Phi Omega, a na- tional service, co- ed fraternity is dedicated to pro- moting leader- ship, friendship and service. The fraternity ' s out- standing enthu- siasm in environmental and community is- sues has prompted their involvement in many different philanthropic activities. Emphasiz- ing a variety of projects which cover different areas, the fraternity emphasizes what Karen Shih calls the " Four C ' s...our commitment to the chapter, the campus, the community and the country. " The fraternity ' s projects have included a Strawberry Creek clean-up; vis- its to orphanages, half-way houses and con- valescent homes; dance-a-thons, and the habitat resto- ration of Muir woods. An- other frater- nity, Phi Lambda Phi, has been in- volved donat- io ing extra food to food banks. volunteering at local schools, and throwing benefits for Oakland ' s Children ' s Hospital. Whether it involves manual labor, or- ganizing events, or donating money, the philanthropic spirit of Cal ' s sororities and fraternities continues to be an integral part of the Greek tradition. philanlhropies 135 with -B- O oR?€.e. 136 greeks sreeks t The G.R.A.C.E. program (Greeks for Racial Aware- ness and Cultural Education) flourished on a diverse campus like Berkeley he Greek system grew out of the South, and is not seen historically as a diverse organization. Yet, on such an ethnically diverse campus as Berkeley, the system has grown to encompass people of all cultural and racial backgrounds. Out of this has evolved a group called G.R.A.C.E., which stands for Greeks For Racial Awareness and Cultural Education. The objectives of the organization are to increase racial awareness and cultural sensitivity within the UCB Greek system and campus at large and to break down stereotypes of minorities through education programming. Each house in the Greek System elects two G.R.A.C.E. representatives. These representatives are trained and edu- cated by G.R.A.C.E. to facihtate cultural and education pro- gramming with the assistance of Education Program To In- crease Racial Awareness (EPIRA) or any such campus cultural education program. The chapter representatives meet with the officers of G.R.A.C.E. twice a month to discuss issues and programming. The events are entirely student coordinated.

G.R.A.C.E. also worked on producing a video, entitled " Wearing Your Colors: A Look at Diversity in the Greek System.

To reach this goal, he group sponsors various forums on topics rel- evant to the African and African American community, including violence, and what can be done to combat it. The group also orga- nizes a cul- ture day in Zellerbach Hall where dancers, singers, co- medians, and people of various talents all come to- gether to celebrate the African cul- ture. The mission of the Asian American Christian Fellowship is " to create a movement to impact the university and collegiate com- munity, primarily those who are Asian Americans, with the life- changing message of Jesus Christ, " said Alan Chuang. The reason for the focus on Asian Americans is to cater to the subtle differences in culture that exist and to recognize that Asian Ameri- cans do have similar experiences unique to the group. Alan said, " We need to be able to relate and identify with others in order to share effectively. This focus on identity does not mean exclusivity; we welcome all seekers to come to our fellowship. " The prime goal of the Ira- nian Student Cultural Organi- zation is to get other ethnic groups informed about the cul- ture. Shahpour Matloob said, " We try to encourage interac- tions between Iranians and other groups. " One of their pur- suits is fundraising for the Near Eastern Studies Dept., which due to financial pressures, is be- ing forced to cut classes from the curriculum. They also organize talks and forums on issues of the Near East and provide informa- tion for students. The Chinese Student Union is an organization that lirings a lot of people together, totalling over 500 members. Sandy Lai said, " This is a place tor us to get together and cel- ebrate what we have in com- mon. " The group organizes a culture night which is also held in Zellerbach where performers from the community and stu- dents alike can come together to share in the culture. They also have events every week includ- ing dumpling parties, movie nights, and karaoke contests. The groups mentioned here are only a tiny fraction of the organizations on campus.

Well, one way to start your " club experience " is to check out a few of the many academic and professional organizations which offer more than friendship and something to do. Among them are: the ASUC Student Legal Clinic, the Minority Pre-Law Coalition, the Asian Business Association, the Chemical Engineering Society, Chicanos in Health Education, the Mortar Board Senior Honors Society, Students for Academic Equality, the Honor Students Society, the Pre-Med Honor Society, the Society of Women Engineers, the Undergradu- ate Minority Business Association, Democratic Education at Cal, Hispanic Engineers and Scientists, and La Raza Law Student Association. Following is a highlight of two particularly outstanding organi- zations, Cal in the Capital and The Golden Key National Honor Society: " Cal in the capital [involves] a very rigorous selection process. " said to senior History major Clara Mercedes Piloto. " You have to think about what your goals are and present your best foot forward. It ' s a great preparation process. " The focus of the program is to offer students a chance to work with an organiza- tion in Washington D. C. A former McNair scholar, Clara will be participating in Cal in the Capital this summer. She will be working with either the Hispanic Caucus, NALIO, or in the public defender ' s office helping prepare cases. Clara points out the program ' s outstanding reputation both at Cal and in the Capitol, " Cal has built up their reputation in D. C. for 60 years. " Not all academic organizations have been around at Cal as long as Cal in the Capital. The Golden Key National Honor Society ' s Berkeley Chapter is relatively new, yet continues to grow and strengthen. Admission to Golden Key is by invitation only and the requirements include a minimum 3.67 GPA and junior or senior standing. Nipa Hossain, the Chapter ' s president extols the virtues of Golden Key, " Last year we won the most improved chapter award, and this year we have an incredible group of people working together. It ' s amazing how well we get along. " Nipa and other members are currently in the running for the prestigious National Key Chapter award for their work in putting together various events including the National Regional Convention in April. " This is the biggest thing happening all year and we have been preparing for months, " she says about the event. Her enthusiasm is infectious as other officers agree that they are both excited and nervous to be hosting this year ' s convention. theresa rojas academic groups 149 1 Whether it is actively 3,11 Cl participating, or cheering on the sidehnes, these groups really have that Cal spirit clubs clubs being a student in Berkeley means repressing all your other interests in life and concentrating on spending time in the lib- rary to study.

The SLC: l K ' s not give legal advice. clubs An image of middle-aged hippies carrying protest signs am organizing sit-ins comes to mind when thinking of Berkeley ' ; political and social action groups. But this is far from what thi real groups do. Groups on campus include CALPIRG, Amnesty ' International, ASUC Student Legal Clinic and the Cal Berkele} Democrats, for example. Each group has a specific purpose an( mission. CALPIRG, for example, has the support of thou- sands of students on campus. This group is an environmental organization that spans the state with chapters on six U.C. campuses. Due to its extremely large base of support, CALPIRG maintains a profes- sional staff, including a lobbyist in Sacramento. The influence of CALPIRG has led to the passage of the Clean Air and Water Acts. The ASUC Student Legal Clinic helps students make informed decisions about legal problems. Infor- mation provided to students includes small claims, traffic violations, divorce, immigration, bankruptcy and consumer issues. However, the ASUC Student Clinic does not give legal advice. Amnesty International is a worldwide human rights organization. On campus, the group involves students in letter writing campaigns. Guest speakers also come and lecture to students. When asked to give a quote for the yearbook, Coordinator of Amnesty International Jon Goldberg responded, " It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.

Ofcourse you have. For years now Berkeley has been home to numerous groups of students that engage in such activities. And almost every week, you can sit in Sproul Plaza at lunchtime and listen to these gi-oups for free. There are old traditional groups that have been around as long as anyone can remember ( like the UC Men ' s Octet and The Golden Overtones) and there are younger, newer groups just formed a few years ago ( like DeCadence and Vocal Outlet). Each of these groups has from 8 to 150 members, and each group must work as a team to give a great performance. Sarah Bliss, of Vocal Outlet, explained, " We are a young gi-oup that has a lot of fun singing and perform- ing. " With the hours of rehearsal each group puts into each show, they would have no choice but to enjoy it. Each gi ' oup performs in places like Upper and Lower Sproul, The Bear ' s Lair, special school events, and many special engagements in San Francisco. These performance require total dedication and com- mitment from every member of the group. Without the total commitment of each member, each group could not perform as often and as superbly as they do. So next time you walk through Sproul and hear one of these groups performing, stop for a second and enjoy the performance. I ' m sure they will appreciate it. david grubstick The Golden Overtones Dnir Fimnilcil : a long time ago Nttnibcr nf nu ' inbers : 9 Atliiilifs : Sing at various events, such as the big game bonfire rally and other student spirit activities.

A Fragile Peace E en as the ink on the accord was still drying, DppDsilion to the agreement was already under way. Hardened by decades of war and hale. Kxtremists from both sides refused to ac- cept the pledge of peaceful coexistence. Many felt that Arafat had sold out lo Israel, while Rabin wascritici ed forgiving up land fi)r peace. Snags have developed in the negotiating priKess over disagreements on border controls and the arming of Arab militias. Some have even attempted to disrupt the peace process with acts of violence. All the world can do is to wait and see -- to see if the momentum of the historic handshake can make the bumps ahead seem small compared to the fmal rewards of peace. -- S i 7i Cluini; 158 SSI KS — INTERN An ON AL Peace in the Middle East? The Long and Winding Road Towards A Tangible Peace In 1 948, an aspiring student by the name of Yit hak Rabin planned to stud) in America lo become an engineer. A year later, Yasser Arafat applied to Texas University, also to pursue a degree in engineering. Neither of them made it to their American destinations. Rabin was asked to stay in Israel to help tight for the newborn state ' s indepen- dence. He rose quickly up the mili- tary ranks, and became general at age 32. a national war hero after his decisive victory against the Arabs in 1967, and Prime Minister in " 74 and ' 92. Arafat left for Kuwait to seek his fortunes in construction, and by age 30, he was a wealthy businessman with a vision of re- gaining Palestine. As the leader of the Palestine Liberation Organiza- tion, Arafat and his guerillas have been ai the heart of the massacre of athletes at the 1972 Munich Olym- pics and countless such attacks in the name of Palestine liberation. He is at the heart of the Palestinian resistance, the Intifada, and the voice of the Palestinian people. Both have traveled far from their humble beginnings as aspiring engineers, and history has pitted them against each other as sworn enemies. Yet in September 1993, forty-five years after their paths lead them away from America, the two leaders arri ed in Washincton D.C. to engineer the elusive goal of peace. On the White House Lawn, Rabin and Arafat signed and shook hands on the historic peace accord that will grant Palestinian self-rule to the oc- cupied territories of Gaza and parts of the West Bank. The two leaders embraced this first glimmer of peace amidst the dark storm of hate that has loomed o er the Middle East for generations. In their wisdom, they saw peace as the ultimate ictory for their people. Now, it will take the courage of every Palestinian and every Israeli to embrace this fragile framework for peace by setting aside decades of distrust and animosity, . As uncertain as the road ahead may seem, at least the foundation for a lasting peace has been built. -- Shih Chain; I ' rcMilcnt Cliiuon plass IiksI io iIk- hisioric Peace Accord, .inj miJi;cs the rclucl.int K.ibm to j hislonc luiidNluikc Peace in the Middle Kast I5« The World At War The Carnage in Bosnia Even as the loundalioiis ot peace and CDopeialion are cemented in Israel and South Africa, war and vengeance remain in place through- out the hills olBosnia-Her egovina. Two years after this Muslim repub- lic declared its autonomy ■ the fight for independence continues. Strug- gling against the better-equipped armies of Serbia and Croatia, two former Yugoslavian r epublics, Bosnia has been ravaged by war. While the West watched for months from the sidelines, the people of Bosnia have been asked to endure mass executions, random sniper Ores, and senseless shellings of their cities and towns. As the world dragged its feet in offering assis- tance, the Bosnians have been left to lend for themsehes. Many have given up hope for an UN solution, and have taken up arms against their aggressors. Yet e en in this the West has hampered them. Arms sanctions meant to curb the inllux of weapons into Serbian hands are de- priving the Bosnian soldiers of the necessary tools to defend their o n families. Equipped with antiquated rilles, these desperate soldiers face the heavy artillery and guns used by the Serbs and Croats. At the heart of the siege is the capital city of Sarajevo, once the proud host ollhe 1 984 Winter Olym- pics. Today, its residents scurry quickly across its main streets, in hopes of avoiding the bullets that seem to fly from every direction. In spite of Western airlifts and UN military ' presence, the suffering con- tinues. Defiant Bosnian Serbs re- main on the offensive, and the ardu iius negotiations forevcn temporary truces have resulted in failure. Now with the shelhng of a public market square, the West has finally strength- ened its voice of outrage. Threats of air strikes and NATO retaliation are promised, but few believe that they will speed up the process towards peace, liven as UN forces file into the warring regions near Sarajevo to enforce the fragile cease-fire, fight- ing continues throughout much of Bosnia. As pessimism becomes en- trenched into the hearts and souls of the Bosnian people, belief in a West- ern solution to their problem has waned day by day. The intensifica- tion of fighting is inevitable, with or without NATO involvement. The only question is whether the west- ern forces will stay long enough to make a difference in this war, or vv i 1 1 they withdraw much as they did in Vietnam and Somalia. May the blood of thousands and the tears of millions shame the West to bring an end to the carnage in Bosnia. - .S7; 7( Cluiiii; IN Pcacckccpinj; lon.i.

Mission Gone Awry When TV pictures of starving Somalians pervaded the e ening news in 1992, the outraged American public pressed President Bush to provide humanitarian assis- tance for the sutTcring masses. As peaceful representatives to provide food and medicine to the needy, a small number of American triH)ps was sent to support United Nations relief efforts. Upon this premise. President Bush willingly placed the troops under UN auspices, and for months the work to feed and care for the famine-struck population was hailed as a success. Yet the Soma- lian agenda slowly evolved into more than humanitarian efforts. Under UN directives, American forces were increasingly used to patrol the streets of the capital city of Mogadishu. Soon, American soldiers started to disband the militia of the feuding warlords, among them the men of Mohamed Farrah Aidid. The UN plan e entually e ol ed into a po- litical agenda - to stabilize the coun- try by putting in a democratic gov- ernment. What began innocently in January 1993 as guarding food and medicine past armed gangs near the docks suddenly became a full-scale effort to build a nation. Embroiled in this were the American soldiers. After several embarassingh un- successful attempts to capture Aidid. US troops were used in the manhunt. The mission turned horribh violent on October 3. 1 993. w hen 1 4 Ameri- can Rangers were killed and 77 in- jured in an ambush by Somalian mili- tiamen. Now, as tele ision tubes showed cheering Somalian crowds dragging the btxiy of adead American soldier on the streets, the American public wanted our tnnips out. After months of deployment, we ' re back to square one. " Shili Cluing Ihc World At War 161 Confrontations in the East A Question of Priorities During his Presidenlial Cam- paign, candidate Bill Ciinliin talked tnugh about human rights in China. Compared to the Bush administration ' s " progress through appeasement " policies, Clinton ' s promise to link China ' s favorable trade status with America with hu- man rights improvements appeared to be a serious attempt to address the issue. Ever since the global media coverage of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre of student protest- ors, popular sentiment had been strongly in favor of tough actions against Chinese human rights ' iola- tions. With Congressional support. President Bill Clinton made good on his promise by signing an Execu- tive Order to link the renewal of China ' s status as America ' s Most Fa orcd Nation (MFN) with " sub- stantial improvements " in her hu- man rights record. This was the statement that many believed would make China listen. The fact is. no one really wants to see China lose her trading privi- leges with America. Not the Clinton administration, not the human rights activists, and certainly not big busi- nesses who have multi-billion dol- lar deals with China. America has worked ery hard for the past few decades to ease open China ' s doors to western trade and diplomatic dia- logue. The last thing that anyone wants to see is China retreating back into isolation, and slamming shut the door to a quarter of the world ' s population. Yet to demonstrate .America ' s resolve in the issue of human rights, the Chinese regime would have to feel the pressure where It counts - its economy. Lnlortunatcls. it seems that America ' s bold statement is too dif- ficult for the Chinese regime to swal- low. The problem lies in the pre- carious political situation in China today. As the impending death of the ailing paramount leader Deng Xiao Ping draws ever closer, the struggle for succession has begun in full force. Many currently in power are trying to demonstrate that they are worthy of replacing Deng, and standing up against American pres- sure is the perfect way to show such a worthiness. Even hard-liners that w ant to befriend the U.S. fmd it hard to bow to American demands with- out appearing weak. So as the communist hard-lin- ers continue their staunch stance on ignoring international calls for im- provements in human rights, the Clinton administration is caught in an awkward position. If China does not offer some e idence of signifi- cant progress in its treatment of po- litical prisoners, its practice of reli- gious persecution, or its brutal op- pression of Tibet. Clinton has no choice but to lift MFN and to impose heavy taxes against Chinese imports. This would undoubtedly infuriate the Chinese regime, leading to esca- lating tariffs that .American business can barely aflbrd. ' et to ignore the very law that he had endorsed ami signed would seriously cripple his administration ' s credibility in for- eign policy. This dilemma now rests fully upon the shoulders of the Chi- nese regime. After sharply rebuffing U.S. Secretary Warren Christopher dur- ing his recent visit to Beijing, the Chinese leadership has demonstrated its refusal to recogni e the impor- tance the world places on human rights. As dependent as the Chinese economy has become on W esiern trade, this w as China ' s effort to reit- erate hersovereignty. Theyaregam- bling that America will not be will- ing to give up her profitable trade with China just to pursue some ideo- logical aims. As it looks now, their assumption may well prove correct. Many Americans are already ques- tioning the rationale for linking trade with politics, and Congress is al- ready looking for a way out of this mess. Yet the reasons why China was originally threatened with the lifting of MFN have not been ad- dressed. In fact, human rights in China have reached a recent low. With the fifih anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre rap- idly approaching, the Communist regime is working hard to prevent any voice of dissent that may sur- face again. Bush was silent in 1989, and from that silence China drew its strength to ignore international con- demnation. Will America be silent once again in 1994 when we will have a chance to affirm our commit- ment to universal human rights ' . ' Or uill ue place greater importance in our multi-billion dollar trade ' . ' It ' s all a question of priorities. - Shih Cluing " History has already proven that it is futile to apply pressure against China. China will never accept U.S.-style human rights. " Li Peng Premier of China ISSUES — NTKRNATIONAL U.S. Secretary of Slate Warren Christopher answers tough questions about his handling of American foreign pohc in East Asia. The New Korean Crisis Tensions are mounting once again on the Korean Peninsula. This time, the stakes are not bound- aries. This new Korean crisis is about nuclear weapons. Recent in- telhgcnce reports have concluded in no uncertain terms that the North Korean government of Kim II Sung is on the verge of developing nuclear weapons. The last step before the production of these warheads of mass destruction is the procurement of nuclear fuel. Herein lies the present source of friction between North Korea and the world. No one wants to see another nuclear power into existence. So when North Korea closed off its nuclear power plant from interna- tional inspectors, the w orld was anx- ious to prevent the birth of another nuclear threat. Yet without frequent inspections of the pluionium waste generated by the reactors, the world cannot prevent North Korea from diverting the plutonium fuel to the production of nuclear weapons. Ever since the collapse of So- viet support and the warming rela- tions between China and the eco- nomically wealthy South Korea, the North has been increasingly isolated in the global arena. The loss of financial and political support has throw n the North Korean economy into disarray. Yet instead of turning to the West, the regime has chosen military isolation. This is its most recent attempt to cling to the old ways of communism - one which has failed the former Soviet Union and present-day Cuba. Yet w ith the impending threat of a nuclear-armed and desperate North Korea, the world must hold our breaths to see when this stalemate will ease. Confrontations in the Kast 163 He did...

So Bill Clinton is not another Jack Kennedy, and Hillary Rodham Clinlt)n is hardly a Jackie O. But believe it or not, there is something special about this new- est White House ct)uple. Alter twelve years of Star Wars, trickle- down economics, and deficit spend- ing on nothing of importance to the American public, things just had to change for the better. During the 1992 Presidential elections. Bill Clinton arrived on the scene as the man who would bring about thai change. With the personabiiity t)f a Southern gentleman and the intel- ect of a Rhodes Scholar. Bill Clinton offered America a new vision of hope, founded upon social and po- litical reform. With his wife Hillary at his side and an experienced Wash- ington-insider the likes of Al Gore as running mate. Bill got the nod from America, and we sent him to Washington to do as he pledged. Pledged he did. Throughout his campaign and his first year in office. Bill Clinton presented his agenda with items that vsould make any conser ali e politician cringe. From advocating universal health care co erage to gays in the mili- tary. Bill challenged Congress to adopt his vision for America. Soon enough, the rookie president faced t)pposition on Capital Hill with his Jobs Bill defeated at the hands of fiscal con.servatives and his inclu- Her To-Do List Pass Health Care Bill Defend Bill • re: affairs Whitewater sf Fire the White House Chef Testify before Congressional Committee sf Get new hair-do Go to Norway for Winter Olympics sf Sit with Labor and Auto Leaders during Bill ' s Speeches sion of Gays in the Military watered down by the Pentagon. Yet Bill continued to push his agenda. In pushing NAFTA and the Brady Gun Bill through Congress despite seri- ous partisan opposition. Bill regained the momentum with v hich he ended his campaign. As his new budget is unveiled and Hillary ' s health care reforms are being finali ed, the Clintons ' vision for America is clearly setting the crucial founda- tions for a brighter future. In a town w here trying your best is often not enough. Bill and Hillary deserve tremendous respect for challenging the establishment in Washington. Now it ' s up to the public to support their vision for America, and build a better foundation for the future.

With memories still fresh of his undisiinquished performance in the unruly and unabashed Vice-Presi- dential debate of I W2. Gore had the world against him. Yet with the polish of the sea- soned journalist that he once was. Gore pulled off the performance of his career. In comparing Perot ' s ■■politics of fear " " to the historic di- saster of the Smoot-Hawley tariffs that crippled the U.S economy dur- ing the (Jreat Depression. Al effec- tively refuted what little factual evi- dence Perot had offered. Perot had iippoii liir NAITA. many valid points to make about the real consumer potential of Mexico, but he apparenih felt more confi- dent in drawing references to " ■the Tooth Fairy ' " and " " the Easier Bunny " than solid economic analysis. In the end. NAFTA survived its most vo- cal critic ' s attacks, and triumphed both on screen and in the Congress. Although the effects of NAFTA re- main to be seen, its first casualty was Ross Perot. As Time magazine eioquenllv phrased it: " Who knew he could seem even smaller and crankier ' . ' " ' -- Sliih Chang rSSlKS — NATIONAL i What ' s So Funny About NAFTA? When I first heard the acronym, I laughed. No, not out of any poHtical cynicism. My first reaction was more primitive, more instinctive than any foimded upon partisan behels. Frankly, I found Bill Clinton ' s pet acro- nym rather funny-sounding, especially with his southern twang. Yet as coverage of this " NAFTA " thing intensified in the media, and when David Letterman started doing monologues about " NAFTA, " I began to do some homework on this topic. It turns out that the North American Free Trade Agreement, affectionately termed by the former Bush Administration as NAFTA, is a treaty between Canada, Mexico, and the United States to lower obstacles toward mutual trade. Promising to build the largest consumer bloc in the world, the NAFTA would obviously be a good thing for America. Or .so President Clinton and his team claim. Never one to take the administration ' s word on faith alone, I pursued this further and found that there was little in the agreement that was all that controversial. Sure, there are the grave concerns over the loss of American jobs and the exploitation of chea p Mexican labor. There are even some very legitimate claims that the agree- ment was being padded with extraneous items just to buy votes from legislators whose districts would benefit. Yet many of the detractors ig- nored the fundamental goal behind NAFTA — free trade. By rule of common sense, the more markets that are opened to you, the more custom- ers you ' ll have. There will always be a free flow of capital and jobs across borders. That is an inevitable part of having businesses who wish to succeed. Now granted. Bill and Al may have gone a bit overboard by pitching the NAFTA as the great provider of American jobs, but they weren ' t far off either. The " simple truth " is that the jobs that Americans have lost and will lose to foreign competition will not come back. Never. The fact is that for certain types of work, the average American worker is just too expensive to hire. That may not sound like much of a conso- lation for just-got-the-pink-slip-honey John Doe, but it ' s a reality with or without NAFTA. What NAFTA will do however, is to ensure that while some companies may relocate jobs across the border, others can also bring American-made products down to sell. We are used to having our stores stocked with imported goods, but few countries around the world as liberal as we are in allowing imports. NAFTA is simply an attempt to even the playing field — to ensure that barriers to US goods come down globally. The first and the most logical place to start is with our neigh- bors. Mexico is on the rise, and Canada has always been closely tied to the American economy. What NAFTA will accomplish in the coming years will largely be inevitable. Yet its passage now will ensure that the barriers to trade will be lifted in an equitable and controlled man- ner. The economic security that lies in this agreement is nothing to laugh about.

He ' s tired all the time, but he ' s not running a fever. He ' s lost his appetite for the last several days, but he says he ' s feeling better now. What would you do if you were his par- ents ' ? Take him to the doctor with- out another thought, of course. Yet like all of those uninsured in America, Johnny goes to bed ill. and his parents spend another night ly- ing awake listening to him cough in his sleep. With each dry. scratchy cough that resonates off the walls, a little piece of their hearts dies. To those of us who are blessed with the piece of mind that comes with health insurance, this portrayal of Johnny ' s family is extremely dis- turbing. Yet for many throughout America, there is absolutely noth- ing unusual about such a gross ne- glect of illness. Health care ex- penses have driven an ever-growing number of Americans off private insurance, without a reliable public safety net to fall on. What was once only seen as a problem faced by the elderly has become increasingly pre alent. and unaffordahle health care now plagues one out of e cry ten families. In a nation where medi- cal technologies and health care pro- fessionals are in abundant excess, more and more working-class fami- lies are finding it impossible to juggle mortgages, car payments, food ex- penses, and doctor ' s bills. Not sur- prisingly, many families, like Johnny ' s, are cutting doctors visits in ordcrto meet more pressing needs. Consequently, more Americans in poor health will go untreated, and as a result, more will die due to the lack of care. What has oLii nation ' s system of health care come to when hard- vM)rking families have to choose between health care and groceries ' ? What kind of society can remain unmoved while millions go without propercare? In a nation of plenty we have plenty of needs. Sure, this is just one of many pressing social issues that demands the attention and resources of our society. Yet what could be more indicative of a nation ' s crumbling social infrastruc- ture other than the neglected health of its citizens? It would seem logical to any human being that universal health care should be a natural right, but the sad truth is that many in our government still see it as privilege that comes with indiv idual financial success. In the days when hospital bills didn ' t exceed a thousand dol- lars a day. this may well ha e been acceptable. Yet the reality is that most of those currently uninsured can not even afford the most mini- mal care. Without the willingness of those in power to share the piece of mind of knowing that you can go to a doctor w hcncv er you need one. kids like Johnny will go on cough- ing in their sleep. Without politi- cians who are compassionate enough to guarantee a system of health care that will always be there. Johnny ' s parents will go on lying awake at night, hating themselves for being helpless to alleviate his sickness. Isn ' t that the least we can expect from a government? Isn ' t that the least that we deserv e? For Johnny s sake, and for millions of American families like his. this safety net ought to be in place. — Shili Clhiiii; •1 i ' The Berkeley Free Clinic provides health Should the Federal Government guarantee health care for all Americans?

The War On Smoking Everyone is ganging up i)n the cigarette industry these days. Decades after the first Surgeon Generars report on the dangerous effects of smoking, the go ernment is finally taking serious measures to curb cigarette smoking in America. By imposing the recent ban on smok- ing in public buildings, millions of Americans will be spared the threats posed by second hand smoke. Sure, it ' s incon enient to go down twelve stories of an office building just to get out and take a smoke, but that ' s exactly the point. It is hoped that this very inconvenience will cause tens of thousands to break the habit. The industry is ob ioush not pleased. Yet this is only the begin- ning of its troubles. Recent Con- gressional inquiries have placed the spotlight on the industry practice of placing " additives " into the tobacco. Although most of these additives were claimed to help improve the taste and aroma of the tobacco, some have alleged that the industry has been systematically lacing the ciga- rettes with additional nicotine to get smokers hooked faster. These dis- turbing charges were categorically denied by industry leaders, and they w ere brought in front of Congress to lestify. Undoubtedly, the heat is on for cigarette companies. With growing pressures lo ban smoking coming from the states, and new concerns over the industry ' s advertising tar- gets of minorities and youths, ciga- rette companies will continue to feel the noose around their necks.

As May draws quickly upon us here at Ber- keley, this comment has become less of a joke everyday. The pros- pects of suddenly becoming unem- ployed is difficult for many to face. During ouryears at Berkeley, we ' ve always had the security of work- study and other campus jobs. Yet once the diploma is handed to us and we are ushered out of the Greek Theatre, that safety net of college life is pulled from under us - leasing us as tender prey in the jungle of the real world. It " s not that we are the first generation of youths to be caught in this job hunting frenzy. Millions before us had to face similar trauma when they first stepped out into the job market. Yet the weak economy has driven most employers from seeking to enlarge their payroll. Even those who already are cur- rently employed are worried about theirjobs. Companies like IB.VI that once would never consider laying off a single worker have now changed their minds. With such an excess in the experienced work force pool, why would anyt)ne want to hire inexperienced youths fresh out of school?

A Burden and A Promise Hundreds of thousands of those currently living within America ' s borders are here without permission from this government. A less conservative estimate may numberwellintothe millions. These illegal immigrants come to America without legal visas to stay, without authorizations to work, and v itht)ul hopes of ever becoming naturalized citizens. They live under constant tear of being reported to immigra- tion, and most are handicapped by the language barrier. All this leaves many of them open to exploitation for slave labor by those who have little sympathy for their plight. Working in the sweatshops of the garment district and the steaming kitchens of restau- rants, ihe abuses ihev face are end- less. Many are even exploited by their own people, as gangs smuggle them in to work as slaves. Never- theless they come, by boats and planes and even on foot. They come for the promise of freedom and op- portunity that America has always pledged. Now they are welcomed with neither the Torch of Liberty nor the erses of Lazurus. Only the stares of fifth-generation immigrants and the rhetoric of bigoted politi- cians greet them. They are not welcomed in this land of immigrants. These are the poor and huddled masses that America chooses to weed from her shores. .Some say they are burdens that we can not afford to carr) . Vcl they come because America was founded upon a pledge of equal op- portunity. Their pleas for accep- tance are real and urgent. This is a promise that we must not ignore. -- hy Shili CluiHi; ' As students of color fortunate enough to receive higher education, it is our responsibility to help our Asian and Pacific Islander communities to fight for the issues that concern us.

But that Golden Door, through which nearly two million legal immigrants entered the United States in 1992. is in danger of slamming shut. Following in a trend seen all over Europe, many Americans are growing rapidly concerned about the steady stream of immigrants com- ing to our shores. Sentiments are especially heated in recession-rav- aged states like California, which alone accepts roughly 40 ' 7f of these new residents. Current laws already already place limits on immigra- tion, but despite these restrictions, America is still being overwhelmed by the flood of those who wish to enter the Promised Land. With the economy still weak and job security the worst in generations, many Americans fear the competition that new arrivals will place on the al- ready scarce job market. Complicating the situation fur- ther is the thorny issue of illegal immigrants. Whether it involves Mexicans crossing into California. Haitians coming to Florida, or Chi- nese sailinii into San Francisco Bav. the daily news is filled with reports of desperate attempts by desperate people who, driven by poverty and repression, do not feel they can af- ford to wait for the system to admit them through the Golden Door. Even if they are deported, many are will- ing to try again, knowing that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The focus on these illegal immigrants have draw criticism to immigrants as a group. Governor Pete Wilson of California even wants aconstitutional amendment that will deny citizenship to American-bom children of undocumented immi- grants. With a growing number of such laws against immigrants, the embrace that America once gave to her newcomers has now turned into a cold stare. -- h Julie Mehta " The ways immigration has been racialized and the ways it has been restricted are a shameful legacy.

What has fueled much of the recent controversy surrounding ge- netic engineering is the fear of eu- genics.

To be frightened of the un- known may be instinctive, but it is nonetheless infantile. There are pos- sible abuses for any technology, and the key to controlling its misuse is to understand more about its funda- mental processes — not less. With genetic research propelling most of the recent advances in medical treat- ments of hereditary diseases like cystic fibrosis and Tay Sach ' s, as well as elucidating the causes of several forms of cancer, we as a society can not afford to retreat back into the dark ages just because the fire that lights the night can also burn. Genetics is the foundation of all life, and its understanding is the key to the future ol medicine. One of a kind breakthroughs are just around the corner. -- hy Shi It Chaiiii DYIN9 E ' KbiMii ' ISSUES — NATIONAL The Moral Pioperty of Women A bitterly divided America now stands at the crossroads of a decision on abortion. No one from the president, tiie Supreme Court, and Congress, to a perplexed public ■including college students — will be spared the burden of this difficult choice. The practice of abortion in the United Slates involves all Ameri- cans in the questions of medical advances, political leverage, and social and moral values. RU 486 is a scientific break- through that offers the promise of ending unwanted pregnancies with the convenience of a pill. It intro- duces both a medical ad ancement and a powerful new dimension to the debate. The drug works by block- ing the hormone progesterone from functioning in its normal role of preparing and sustaining the uterine lining that receives and holds a fer- tilized egg. and it causes contrac- tions to induce the abortion. The pill, which has no known side ef- fects, has been widely tested and used throughout Europe and parts of Asia. It has now become " the moral property of women " in France. RU 486 eliminates the need for surgery and moves the setting to the pri acy of a doctor ' s office, far away from the angry crowds of protestors in front of abortion clinics. This convenience has compli- cated the controversy. Anti-abor- tion activists have sworn to prevent its introduction into the United States, and have threatened to boy- cott any pharmaceutical company that tries to market it in America.

Now with a pro-choice president in the White House, the testing of the drug has began and its popular availabil- ity is close on the horizon. Yet no amount of scientific data will usher in its acceptance. It will depend solely upon the political climate of our society.

Hopes have risen and fallen during recent months as ex- citing breakthroughs fizzled under scrutiny.

Nature Shows Her Strength The past twelve months niay well go down in American histoid as ' ' )( ' Year of Naiiinil Disasters. Mother Nature demonstrated her awesome power in early summer of 1993. when torrential rains in the upper Mississippi and Missouri River Valley caused massive flood- ing through the Midwest. Whole counties were under water by the time the Missouri River crested, reeking havoc with thousands of farming communities. For weeks on end. Hood victims watched as entire towns were swallowed up by the mighty river. The slow retreat of flood waters made life excruciat- ingly difflcult. since the process of rebuilding and healing could not c cn begin until the ri er receded by late autumn. Before the summer dry season was to end in southern California, one of the worst wildfires in recent memory struck hillside communi- ties throughout the .Southland. The Laguna Beach communities were the first victims of the fiery flames, but the Malibu fires followed quickly upon. With the scorched hillsides barren after the flames had died off, the winter rains created rivers of mud flowing down to drown the already devastated communities. Just when the nation settled down to assess all the deslruclii)n. another show of Nature ' s power came down hard upon the entire Hastem sea- board.

Within seconds, it has be- come a immense blaze, whipped by erratic winds, engulfing everything in its path. It slowly rolls away, leaving in its wake only charred remains of photos, letters, and bro- ken trinkets that represented thou- sands of treasured memories. This senario played out count- ess times in October 1993. as the Jr Santa Ana winds of southern California fanned the fires that cre- ated havoc for one community after another. All told, the Malibu fire alone destroyed over 400 structures and claimed three lives. A week earlier, another brushfire ravaged the Laguna Beach area, razing over 100 homes and businesses. Adding to the heartbreak of the victims is the possibility that arson had caused both these conflagrations. The pain is shared by many of the students here at Cal. For a num- ber of us. these fires bring back terrifying memories of the Oakland Hills fire of 1991. which displaced over 3000 local residents. For the 10.000 Cal students from the south- em California area, the fear and anxi- ety was even worse, as television camera zoomed in on raging fires that were threatening their own com- munities. With armies of firefighters and homeowners battling tirelesssly against the endless wall of flames, the fires slowly came under control. Their courageous efforts sa ed lives and property. Many fire ictims knew that the danger of fires ex- isted, but few predicted the devasta- tion that laid in the wake of these brushfires.

Living in a State of Fear Despite popular belief, we are not living in the shadows of fear. Sure, everyone knows that one day, the Big One will come. Califomians know the risks that come with living in an earthquake zone. The fact also does not escape us that the probability for a major, catastrophic earthquake to hit California increases every year. So why do we stay? How do we go on with our lives with this always in the back of our minds? Simple. We go on because we have to. We stay because we want to. California and her fault lines may not be the safest place in the world to be, but at least it ' s nothing that should stay on your mind 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Every region of the country has its own natural disaster. The floods of the Midwest, the hurri- canes of the South, the blizzards of the Northeast, and the tornadoes where er they show up. No state is immune, and nobody is safe. So does that mean that America is constantly on the brink of mental collapse because a natural disaster can hit anywhere, anytime? Obviously not. The dangers of living along fault lines are known risks that we take living in the Golden State. Just as much as we are aware of the drought conditions. Just as aware as we are of the approach of the Killer Bees. Each of these are causes for concern, but none should cause panic. Calilornians are a hearty group of people. Maybe it ' s the sunshine. Maybe it ' s the aqueduct water. Maybe it ' s just the spirit of California, but we bounce back and keep on chucking along. What can ' t be predicted should not be the cause of undue anxiety. No, I ' m not saying that we shouldn ' t be prepared. On the contrary, awareness is the key to siir i ing an natural disaster. Just as you vKoukl keep bandages ready in case of a cut, you would have lo be prepared to sur ive an earth- quake. The key word here is survival - loendurc. That ' s what we Califomians do best.

Floods, Fires, Quakes i7y Crime Safety in America America the Violent The newspaper headlines and nightly news reports tell it all; body of Petaluma girl finally found after months of intensive nation- wide search; father of NBA-star Michael Jordan brutally murdered during a violent car robbery attempt; dozens injured as madman opens fire in a crowded rush hour com- muter train. Any one of these crimes, if taken on its own, is disturbing enough. In any society, crimes - even violent crimes - are a sad fact of life. Yet the disturbing trend of crimes in America is that violent offenses are becoming more and more common. From urban streets to suburban school yards, crime is taking a violent turn for the worse. What causes individuals to commit these violent crimes? Is there some rhythm to this increase in senseless killings? James Q. Wil- son, professor of pubic policy at L ' CLA. believes that the current trend to this madness stems from the growth in youth populations. He claims that there exists a cyclical pattern to the crime rate that is di- rectly proportional to the youth popu- lation in America. With the dra- matic expansion in personal free- doms and inequitable gains in per- sonal property during the last hall- century, our society inevitably brews some conflicts that marginalize cer- tain groups of frustrated youths. Armed with guns and desensitized by otheractsof violence, the youths of today become hopelessly en- tangled in a cycle of crime and io- lencc. So is that the problem? Too many guns and too many kids will- mg to use it to get what they want? Perhaps so. With a 1 24% increase in murders by 14-17 year-olds from I W6 to 1 yy 1 , Professor Wi Ison may be right. So where does that leave us as a society? How do we solve this problem of crime? How do we reaf- firm the values of human life and rekindle the moral sensibilities of would-be killers? How do we pre- vent our society from becoming America the Violent? Education, for one. Embrace these troubled teens from their ear- liest years, and turn them away from the cycle of violence plaguing our streets. Social reforms are also im- portant, in order to ensure that the marginalized sectors of our society do not breed crime and iolencc from discontent and frustration. There are no easy solutions to the problem of crime. Each step that we take will be hard for some and pain- ful for others. We have to start tackling the issue of crime by treat- ing it by changing individual, in- stead of condemning an entire seg- ment of the community. Individuals committed the crimes against Polly Klaas, James Jordan, and countless others like them all over America. By making sure that other indi idu- als don ' t lead lives of crime we can present more innocent lives from being lost. That " s all we can hope for - save one life at a time. - Shih Clhini; Attorney General J.inoi Kcim pledges lo fight crime and violence through gun control. rS.SlES — NATIONAL A Step in the Right Direction Originated by a Republican president, and sLiccesstuliy pushed through Congress by a Democratic leadership, the Brady Crime Bill -now the Brady Law- is the centerpiece ofAmerica ' s present strategy against crime. By provid- ing over $3.4 billion a year to put more cops on the streets and more prisons to house the criminals, the new anti-crime bill signals an affir- mation of America ' s commitment to wase war on crime. At the heart of the Brady Law is gun control. It institutes a manda- tory five-day waiting period for all purchases of guns and armaments, providing police an opportunity to conduct background checks on the gun buyer. During its first month in effect, preliminary reports show that at least 1.205 people in 15 states were denied gun purchases because of their criminal records. Along with controlling the availability of weapons, gun dealerships were also targeted for restrictions by the Brady Law. Dealers must pay significantly more fortheiroperating licenses than before. All this obviously drew sharp criticisms from the National Ritle Association and other critics of gun control. Yet with the disturbing trend of violent crime increasing in severity every year, how can anyone claim that more guns will help the problem? One less gun in society is one less gun that we " 11 have to worry about. If the day ever comes that we will have to have guns to protect ourselves, then that would be much too late. For now , limiting the avail- ability of weapons in our .society - however small its impact - is a step in the right direction. -- Shih Clumti l)i.s|iiio .1 i|iiioi (.-,ir sn i.ir. police presence remains heavy throughout Berkeley and (he L C campus utter la.si year s cimi urucsi Crime Safi ' t in Anurica IKl The Twice- Weekly Daily CaH When ihc Daily Culiioniidn suspciidcd daily publicalion last term, many in the Berkeley eoni- niunity were shocked.

Well, this is what the grapevine says... The Daily Californian was originally produced on-campus. The directory in Eshleman Hall still la- bels the sixth floor as the Daily Cat production office. Yet the publica- tion had moved off-campus, to their current location on Dwight. The site was subsequently purchased by the Daily Cal. and that ' s when the troubles began. Perhaps the burden of a monthly mortgage was just too much for the paper to handle. Maybe it was just a victim of the sour economy. For whatever reason, the Daily Cal was in deep financial trouble. To stay afloat, the presses run only twice a week, giving Ber- keley the daily news every Tuesday and Friday. The mortgage payments lapsed, and now the Daily Cal is looking to come back to campus.

At least not while you " re a student in the UC system. Yes, Virginia, tuition hikes are here again. Now come on.... Is it worth getting angry and depressed every time they raise our fees? Does it even matter what students have to say about the tuition hikes? Do the Regents even care about our opinit)ns ' . ' Prob ably not. but I ' ll voice my complaints anyway. VC students ha e been seeing our tuition skyrocket o cr the last four years. In 1991, student tees a% eraged around S 1 .820 a year; now the cost has jumped to .S3, 727 a term -excluding room, board, and books. It ' s still a good value, but for the increased tuition we don ' t see the additional returns. Classes are as highly impacted today as they ever were. Buildings are in the same state of disrepair that they have been. E.xpccted years of stay until gradua- tion has risen steadily towards the five-year mark. Where did all the money go to? Granted, the UC system is underfunded by the state. Yes, the tuition increases are necessary to keep the UC system from falling apart entirely. Student can accept such sacrifices if we see the benefits that we ' re paying for. Right now most students feel like we ' re paying more for less. The fact that UC President Jack Pcltason promises " golden parachute " retirement bo- nuses to top UC executives during such times of VC financial crises doesn ' t make the tuition hikes easier to swallow. Just give us a cent ' s worth of education for every cent that you ask us to shell out.

Every year tens ol ihousands of isilors tome lo see the sights around Berkeley. The Tourist Trap Is il jusi my iinaginalion or has Berkeley become a tourist trap? Kveryday I sec dozens of camera- happy tourists and visitors on cam- pus, clicking their Polaroids at ev- erything from the Campanile (a fa- vorite among alums ) to Sproul Plaza, to, yes, even the students. It " s a nice feeling to know that people spend their vacations visit- ing a place that you ' re paying money to attend. In a sense, it even justifies our tuition hikes! We are, after all. spending nine months in a place that can be dellned as a tourist attraction. But then again, Berkeley isn ' t ex- actly Disneyland or Cancun. What- ever our feelings of Berkeley may be, the tourists seem to love it. Most of the visitors are families - prob- ably alums who ' ve brought their children to see the campus. They ' re easy to spot: kids donned with the blue and gold Cal caps, the wives with the ASUC bags full of Cal sweat-shirts, husbands clicking the camera away with abandon. Then there are the visiting high school students and their parents, herded along from University Hall across the campus by student tour guides. You almost gel an irresistible sense to shock the living daylight out of the kids. Better yet, let them come untainted. Berkeley will do the rest. The last category of tourists are the most fascinating - the for- eign delegations. UC Berkeley draws perhaps the largest numbers of foreign tourists of all American universities. Due to its excellent reputation in the Far East, many visitors who come to San Francisco feel the urge to cross the Bay to see the hallowed halls of Berkeley. The; are by far the easiest to spot. Thci insistence on formal v ear pro idc a stark contrast against the prepp grunge-anarchist-tic-dye fashion that dominate the campus pt)pula tion. As cynical as we may be some times about the tourists, most Bcr keley students appreciate the tlat tery. Perhaps one day we too shal see this campus as a shrine of highc education. Perhaps one day we shal return with our families, to take snap shots of the Campanile and Sprou Plaza. Maybe we will even take thi guided tours. We may even rciuri in three-piece suits and dress shoe to match... Nah. We ' ll just grab ; nuxha from Cafe Strada and sit oi the Morrison lawn, and lea e thi tourist bit lo the tourist. — Shih Chan ISSUES — REGIONAL The Witches of San Francisco Chinese New Year celebrations are always among the most eolorlul e ents in the Cily. All sons ol ghouls and gohhns surface for the Castro Street Halloween Parade. To some, the image of a witch a s a wizen crone counting off bats and eyes of newt into a seething cauldron exists as a character from Grimm ' s fairy tales. However, no image could be further from the reality of the beliefs and practices of those who call themselves feminist witches today. They are simply women strug- gling to empower themselves in a male-domi- nated society - with the help of a little white magic. Witches today are at least acknowledged as citizens - with different beliefs. Hungarian- born Zsuzsanna Budapest founded Susan B. Anthony Coven Number One, the tlrst feminist witch coven in the Bay Area, in 1 970. Since then, thousands of such spiritual groups have sprouted across the nation as an outlet for feminist beliefs. Budapest, who came from a long line of witches, defines a feminist witch as a woman who consid- ers the Earth a living being to be regarded and respected as God Herself. Modem witches practice a female- and na- ture-oriented religion known as the Craft. " A feminist witch uses her craft for the good of all, politically as well as personally, " says Budapest. ■ ' It " s unlike other religions in that it has a power- ful female deity. " To thousands of wt)men, the power attained from the practice of witchcraft is used in making good decisions, doing well at work, and being resourceful. Budapest first decided 1(1 help the coven of working women after w atching the Hill-Thomas hearings in 1 94 1 on sexual harassment. " I couldn ' t help but think. what if Anita Hill could do a little spell and send him packing! ' " Subsequently, she published a handbook dedicated to Prof. Hill, which de- scribes spells that can be used to tackle specific problems on the job. They include ending sexual harassment, getting a raise, and c en handling a misbcha ' ing computer. A lot of people fear witches for what they can do. " Many feel uncomfortable in my pres- ence. " admits Budapest. To ijuell their fear, she jokingly reassures them. " All my ex-lo ers are still well and ali e.

To her surprise and the horror lit millions across America, she is clubbed on her knee. She falls to the floorcrying in pain, while the assail- ant tied through the windows. A national wave of sympathy falls onto the lap of Nancy Kerrigan, and she is immediately made into America " s newest darling. As revelations of the conspiracy to attack Kerrigan surfaced, the controversy intensi- fied into a full-tledged media frenzy. Tonya Harding, Kerrigan ' s chief ri- val, suddenly becomes the heartless bully who wants her opponents out of the way. These two skaters, along with the likes of Shawn Eckardt, Derrick Smith, Shane Slant, and Jeff Gillooly. become household names, and the topic of the daily news. To their credit, their roles were forced upon them by the media. Nancy Kerrigan is by no means the innocent dariing that the media had made her out to be. She is, by all accounts, a strong-willed and deter- mined athlete, who will use what- ever advantage that comes her way. Tonya is no princess, either. She ' s had a rough childhood, collecting cans by roads to pay for her ice skating lessons, and her troubled marriage at age 15 with Gillooly certainly didn ' t make her life any better. To be honest though, they did put on a good show. The Winter Olympics have never been as excit- ing as the Lillehammer Games of 1 994 were, and that was in large part to the credit of Nancy and Friends. Unfortunately, the ultimate anti-cli- max came during the competition itself, when Harding choked during both her programs and ended any hopes of a duel between her and Kerrigan on the ice. Her equipment problems led to her breaking down on the ice, and she shamelessly whined to the judges. Yet Kerrigan herself surprised everyone by show- ing off her dark side after her di.sap- pointing loss to an Ukrainian skater. Kerrigan shocked the world, and all her fans, when she commented bit- terly about her opponent ' s tears of triumph. For the world to see, she displayed her true personality - the bitingly-cold ice queen. Now, after the Games and the Court proceedings have ended, the coverage of the duo has, thank good- ness, died down. Kerrigan is now raking in the advertising money, and Harding copped a guilty plea in re- turn for an end to the investigation over her role in the controversy. Their agents are probably eagerly waiting to sign multi-million dollar contracts for a made-l ' or-TV movie. So please, spare us the pathetic cries of " why me " and the whines of " my laces broke.

Terror Kortune in the NNorid of .Sports 189 Troubled Lives of the Stars Sympathy for Kurt Cobain? The death of Kurt Cobain didni exactly shock the world. I don ' t think that he was ever a happy per- son to begin vsith. and rumors ol ' his drug abuse had been circulating qui- etly for months. Yet his suicide death did cause quite a stir in the media - but mostly in reaction to the coverage of his suicide. Cobain was the lead singer for the grunge-rock band. Nirvana, who first appeared on the music scene only two years ago. Since then, their record albums have been hot items in the music stores, and their style of Seattle grunge-punk-rock has caught on all across America. He may not have been idolized, per se, but he was certainly a visible figure in con- temporary teen culture. Which was probably why his suicide death drew so much atten- tion, even from the likes of Andy Rooney . resident conservative cynic on CBS ' s 60 Minutes. Rooney ' s stingy remarks about Kurt Cobain ' s unredeeming life and work drew hundreds of angry responses from all walks of life, including colum- nist Anna Quindlen of the A ' en ' York Times. His insensitive remarks re- garding a young fan ' s heartfelt com- ments regarding teen depression and suicide received the brunt of the media attention. I ' ll be the first to say that his comments were uncalled for, and a little respect for a man whose work has affected millions of teens would be greatly appreciated. Yet in a sense his observation wasn ' t that far off the mark. We as a society have turned to these troubled stars as icons and role models, hile ignoring the quiet but important accomplish- nienisi)fcomnu)n indi iduals. Teen depression ,v a serious problem that has been largely ignored by the me- dia, but the debate over the death of Kurt Cobain has made him out to be the typical youngster in America. This simply isn ' t true. Cobain ' s problems in dealing with his overnight success were not those that were shared by many American youths. I le didn ' I have to face the crime-ridden streets of the inner cities like millions of Ameri- can teens, nor did he have strained parent-child relationships. His sui- cide rose out of his inability to dea with all that went with his supersta status. Compared to the real prob lems that millions of youths arounc America have to contend with ev eryday -gang violence, child abuse and economic insecurity, amonj countless others - Cobain ' s lift seemed serene and comfortable ir comparison.

The ensuing legal in- quiry drew so much media attenti on that even his publicist was forced to acknowledge the issue. His press agents publicly denied the charges, but the investigation continued. Po- lice searched his family estate, his personal ranch home, a number of Las Vegas hotels, and other places where the alleged incidents took place. Ultimately, a picture of Michael ' s dark side was drawn out by the tabloid press that included weekend sleep-overs w ith scores of kids - sometimes involving sexual contacts. These allegations finally took their toll on Jackson, which prompted him to end his tour prema- turely. He revealed that he had been addicted to painkillers for many years, and the emotional torment of the recent charges had left him de- fenseless against his dependency and forced him to seek treatment. Yet the worst was still to come. Upon his return to America, he was quickly pursued by police in- volved in the investigation. In a public address to the world, Michael pleaded his innocence once more. He also described, in excruciating pain, the ordeal that he had to endure during the police searches of his body, during which they took pic- tures of his genitals and buttocks. The humiliation that he v as experi- encing was unreal, and he urged the truth to come out.

Fortunately, the turbulent Fall held more ups than dow ns - the Bears, picked by many to finish in the bottom of the Pac- 10. instead lied for fourth place with Arizona .Slate, finishing with an 8-4 record on the season and icing the cake with an Alamo Bowl win over Iowa. Cal opened up with a win over 1994 Rose Bowl champs UCLA, edging the Bruins 27-25. The game was one of tailback Lindscy Chapman ' s first chances to shine, out from the shadow of Cal ' s offensive greats .Sean Daw kins and Russell White, and he took full advantage of it. turning in a 160 yard game that cost him a steak dinner for the offensive line (his thanks for every game over 1 00 yards, a price he had to pay four times this year). With wins over San Diego State. Temple and San Jose State, the Bearwere raging tow ards their best start in years w hen disaster appeared to strike against Oregon. In the first half, the Ducks devoured the Bears ' defense. lea ing the Bears with a 30-7 deficit going into halftime. Things looked dismal as the Bears took the field in the second half, but within a minute. Chapman had put in a 61 -yard run for a touchdown that set the tone for the half. The Bears dro e for two more touchdowns to Oregon ' s one. to bring the score to . 8-27 with just over five minutes left to play. With Oregon fans already streaming for the exits, the Bears illustrated the number one Rule of Cal Football Fandom: Regardless of the score, you never leave the stadium till it ' s over. Barr dropped a 72-yard pass right into wide receiver Damien Semien ' s waiting hands for a TD. taking the Bears within ten. A pass to Iheanyi L ' wae uoke in the end one with 1: 17 on the clock pulled the score to 41-40. and some Bear fans breathedasighof relief, figuring a tie was at least not a loss. Offensive coordinator Denny Schuler convinced head coach Keith Gilberlson to go for the two-point conversion instead of the kick, and Barr called an audible on the Ime before lofting a pass to Caldwell in the end one. " It seemed like the ball was in the air forever. " said Caldwell. " I had lime to think about things, like where I left my car keys. " Caldwell ' s catch gave the Bears the vic- tory. 42-4 1 . for the greatest comeback the Pac- 10 has ever seen. Talk around town was of the Rose Bowl. The Bears didn ' t have long to savor their victory, as the Huskies came to town the follow- ing week. Cal dominated in the first half, run- ning away from Washington. 20-3. But in the third quarter, a sack brought Barr down hard on the artificial turf, injuring his throwmg shoulder and thumb. When safety Kric Zomalt left the game with a sprained knee, things started to crumble. With 3:47 left in the founh quarter, the Huskies, down 23-10. began a drive w hich scored two TDs to put the Huskies up over the Bears. 24-23. Three more ditTicult games followed, as the Bears fell to Washington State. USC and finally Arizona State and Barr nursed a trouble- some shoulder. By the end of the Washington State game, fans were talking optimistically of the Poulan-Weedeater Independence Bow 1. B the end of the Arizona State game, the only bow 1 anyone was talking about was the toilet bow 1. " It was an emotionally difficult season lor me. not knowing if I was going to play from week to week. " said Barr. who watched most of the Bears ' slide from the sidelines. By the Arizona game Nov. 13. however. Barr was feeling confident about his healing shoulder, and led the Bears to a 24-20 victory over the nation ' s number one defense. Again the Bears came back from impossible odds, down 20-0 at the half. Despite a stronger second hall, the Bears still trailed 20-17 late in the fourth quarter. In the final 3 minutes. 38 seconds of his last game at Memorial Stadium, senior Zomalt returned an interception 3. ' i yards for a touch- down, bringing the score to 24-20. where it remained as the clock ran dow n. In a season of many highlights, the Big Game versus Stanford stands out for many as the best of them all. " It ' s hard to pick a personal favorite, " said Barr. " Oregon was huge, and then there was Arizona, but if I had to pick one it would be Stanford. Beating Stanford w as sweet. If I ' d graduated without beating Stanford, my whole college career wouldn ' t have been worth- while. " For more in-depth coverage of the Big Game, see pages 20 and 2 1 .

What if Barr. without whom the Bears were 0-4. had been healthy all season? And what if the Bears had been playing on natural grass instead of artificial turf w hen Barr fell in the Oct. 9 game against Wa.shington? While the jury remains out on these and other questions, the injury did bring the debate over natural versus artificial lurt ' to the forefront in the Cal community, after surfacing in such diverse forums as Sports lUusiruied and the Washington State legislature. While studies remain inconclusive, many people, from the fans to Barr himself, have opinions on the matter. " I ' m about fifty-fifty on whether to blame the turf or not, " said Barr. " My elbow got stuck in the turf, where on grass it might have slid out. but it ' s hard to say. " Fan reaction tends to lean toward the appearance of ihe surface, rather than the way it feels to hit it. " Real grass just seems more like real football, " said Steve Scott, ' 88. " I ' d prefer grass for aesthetic reasons, " said Bill Hays. ' 68. " not to mention that it slows down the USC running backs. " Whatever the reason, the Athletic Department has heard the alumni ' s cries. " We ' re very interested in doing it. " Assistant A.

That ' s sort of what institutions ;ire doing across the country - for whatever reason, they ' re converting from Astro-turf to natural grass. " Astro-turf, the brand name for the turf Cal uses, was installed at Memorial in 1980 to allow more use of the field, which currently houses soccer games, band practices and intramural sports in addition to football. Fifty-one of the 106 Division 1 A schools currently play on artificial turf. While plans were not definite at press lime.

Cal fans had anolherreason locelebrale: the Golden Bears ' (hird bowl vic- tory in four years, this time in the inauiiural Builder ' s Square Alamo Bowl. The Bears set the stage for their bowl appearance by finishing strong - rounding out the season w ith three convincing wins after a mid-season slump. Their exciting play prompted the bow I committee to choose Cal over Arizona Slate, who had tied with the Bears for fourth place in the Pac-IO. The Bears ' opponents in the Alamo Bowl were the Big 1 0 ' s low a Hawkeyes. coming off a similar season: they had started well, only to tlail mid-season, but returned at the sea.son ' s end for a 6-5 overall record.

The next night. iz Tthe game. Cal fans gathered upstairs at the Riverwalk Marriott to toast the vic- tory and the new year with cham- pagne and sing the Cal Drinking Song. It was a one-sided game from the start, w ith even the Iowa players admitting that they were out-classed, and the Haw keyes ' fans bad-mouth- ing their own quarterback, troubled Paul Burmeistcr. " We ' re playing a team that should be in the Rose Bow I and we had trouble competing in the Big 10. " said Iowa ' s defensive lineman Mike Wells.

" We ' re going to throw the ball around, run around, and hit a lot of people, " but the truth w as it looked about that easy. With the noiscmakcrs the promot- ers had handed out at the door reverberating through the domed stadium. 45.716 fans watched as the Bears outscored the Haw keyes 2. ' ?-0 in the first half. Cal broke the game wide open with linebacker Jerrott Willard ' s dramatic inter- ception on the last pla of the first half: he rolled into the end one for the first TD of his college career, a move that brought Cal fans to their feet. Barr lead the Bears on three drives of more than 70 ards each, spearheading an offense that oulgai ned the Haw keyes. 4. 4 yards to 90. Three Bears caught touch- down passes: Mike Caldwell. Iheanyi Uwaezuoke and Brian Remington. Kicker Doug Brien also got in on the scoring free-for- all, booting three field goals to contribute to the final score of . 7 3. Brien ' s first field goal in tin- game boosted him to Cal ' s all-time career scoring leader, with 54 field goals and 278 career points. The game ended shortly be- fore midnight, and the how Is orga- nizers, apparently attempting to outdo the Battle of the Alamo it- self, unleashed a laser and fire- works spectacular before releasing hundreds of blue, while and or- ange balloons onto jubilant fans already spilling onto the field. " The University of Califor- nia just dominated the game to the extent that we could never get any- thing going on offense ordelense. " said Fry after his llth bowl ap- pearance in 1 5 years.

The show mixes these random stunts with rehearsed skits, brief personal stories (kicker Doug Bricns lucky shirt ) and game footage, usually set to disco. The show also spawned weekly features like " This Week in the Pac-10. " and its spin-off. " This Week in Non-Revenue Sports " Whyte and Friden even have their own theme song, composed by a friend, and a hotline. GO- OLGIE. (GO-OSKIE was already taken.)

A heart- breaking loss to the Cardinal (2-1) Oct. 29 knocked the Bears out of post-season competi- tion, ending the season second in their division with a 6-3-2 overall record, 4-2- 1 in league play. " At first we were dismal, " said forward Alan Saran. " But it w as a very productiv e season for everyone involved; it built character. " Characterwas something the Bears needed, as they dealt w ith a neu coaching stall, including first-year head coach Mark Mallon and many new players. These players will have to work hard next year to fill the shoes of graduating seniors Vince Bartolotta (midfielder), who was voted second team Mountain Division as a for- ward, and Saran. After last year ' s tough season, however, the Bears are reaching for the sky next year. ' We have a great young squad, " said Mallon. " We expect to be an NCAA Tourna- ment team in the near future. " The Bears did well against ranked oppo- nents, downing No. 1 8 Furman and No. 25 Air Force, and tying No. 6 Cal Stale Fullerton. Th ree players made the .MPSF All-Fed- eration team: junior sweeper Richard Weis man was named to the first team; the previously- mentioned Bartolotta was placed on the second team; and sophomore forward Aaron Mace re- ceived honorable mention. Strong returning players in 1994 will in- clude sophomore goal-keeper Adam Rosenblatt. Weis man. and junior midfielder Steve Coppedge. As the Bears look to the future, they hope to s(X)n be playing on natural grass at Memorial Stadium. " That ' s definitely on our minds. " said sophomore midfielder Todd Higley. " When we ' re playing on the field, we ' re talking about the field. " _l _l J As for the Bears ' lemalc counterparts, the Cal women ' s stKcer team started the season on a much stronger note. Women ' s scKcer entered the sea.son with an i 1 th place national ranking and dove right into a 13-game winning streak, driv- ing their ranking to an unprecedented No. 2.The Bears may have peaked early, as they ended their season with a No. 1.3 ranking and a 10-3-4 overall record. Although they were eliminated from post-season play in the first round of the playoffs, it was their first playoff appearance in five years, and reaching that game had been the Bears ' goal since the beginning of the sea.son. The Bears began their season with a 13- malch unbeaten streak, either winning or tying every game. Highlights of this period included the Bears ' Sept. 29 2-1 victory over rival St. Mary ' s, and a 1-0 upset over then-No. 2 Santa Clara Oct. 17. A four-member senior class lead the Bears thisyear.composedofmidfielders Katie Ander- son and Stacey Juhl and forwards Alexis Th- ompson and Hrika Hinton. " The senior group did a tremendous job at setting the standards for every one else to have and follow . " said head coach Andy Bonchonsky. " They consistently were there in the cl utch, staying positive and helping in motivating ev- erybody ' Even with the departure of this fearsome foursome next year, the prospects Uuik bright for women ' s soccer in 1994. Strong returning Bears will include junior sweeper Stephanie Harten. junior goalie Kyla Schmedding and freshman golaie Karen Cook, junior midfielders Jen Harvey and Tiffani Hobbs. and freshman midfielder defender Berkley Bowers.

The nearly-even overall record, however, belies a season marked by early injury and shake-ups. Senior midfielder Theresa Kone, who had arthroscopic surgery on both knees in the off-season, was unable to reco er in time for the season and sal out the year. Losing this experienced player forced head coach Donna Fong. in her 18th season with the Bears, to reassign several players to unfamiliar territory . Despite the sw itch-arounds. the Bears were able to over- come th eir season-opening home losses to Boston University and Rutgers and dominate in the Nor-Pac. Unfortunately, for every game the Bears won in the conference, they faced tough competition from outside the conference, winning only two games outside the Nor-Pac all year. Facing the difficult East Coast opponents did give the Bears a chance to hone some fundamentals they had been lacking in at the start of the season. " We had played kind of an erratic season, " said Fong. " Then at the end, we put it together. I felt pretty good about the last two or three games. They showed some consistency: the playing level of some people had gone up a notch. " By the end of October, the Bears looked like a shoo-in for Nor-Pac champions. Two late-season conference losses, how- ever, forced the Bears to play a grudge match w ith .Stanford for the title and the right to attend the NCAA ' s.

Cal will miss departing seniors starters Kasandra Cronin (goalie). Annaliese Lodge (forward). Jenni Grider (back). Ashli Carpi (sweeper) and Min Ta (back midfielder). But with the return of Korte for her final year of eligability. plus a strong core of underclass- men, including sisters Annie and Kathleen Lavelle and midfielder Use Akkermans. the Bears look to have a healthy chance of defending their Nor-Pac crown.

Despite strong individual pertbniiances and outstanding showings in individual matches, things simply failed to gel for the frustrated Bears. " I think there was a little bit of disappointment among the whole team. " said head coach Dave DeGroot. in his sixth year leading the Bears. " We started off 7 and in the preseason, which is the best we ' ve ever had, then right aw ay lost dow n in LA. and lost some close ones to the Arizonas at home. I think it was hard to get out from underneath that. " The Bears opened up strong, sweeping Idaho Stale. Boise State and Gonzaga in the Boise State Labor Day Classic. Their 3-0 (13-12. 15-11, 15-9) victory over Idaho State Sept. 3 was their first season-opener win since 1989. The victory over Boise State gave DeGroot his 100th career win with Cal. Cal ' s first losses came against the Los Angeles schools. No. 3- ranked UCLA and No. 9 USC. The demoralizing home losses to Arizona (No. 20) and Arizona State (No. 17) followed. The Bears ' losing streak stretched to nine games before they chalked up their first conference wins of the season, in hard-fought home matches with Oregon and Oregon Slate (No. 23). Oegon carried the match to a full tlve sets, forcing the Bears to claw their way to a 15-12, 12-15. 15-7.9-15. 19-17 victory.

By the end of the season. Curci left the Bears as the team ' s all-time leader in assists, w ith 4.(M18 in her career. She also tied Cal ' s career senice ace record with 136. Senior middle-blocker Cara Dane also blazed against Oregon. downing a career-high 27 kills. Dane ended her career as Cal ' s all-time block ' s leader w ith 434. Despite the confidence-boost the Oregon games provided, the Bears were unable to capitali e and dropped three inore close games before beating Washington in Harmon Arena. They seesawed out the rest of the season, again defeating both Oregon schools, this lime on their home lurf. " The w hole year we were very close in a lot of our inatches. " said DeGroot. " We ended up eighth in the Pac-IO. and I think we were definitely more of a fourth or fifth place kind of team. " In addition to Curci and Dane, the Bears graduated four other seniors: outside hitters Tosha Comendani and Shaney Fink, middle- blocker Jill Schneider and Lynn Patrick. Comendani finished her career ranked fourth on the Bears ' all-time digs list, with 1.079. Next year, the Bears w ill return just one starter, sophomore outside hitter Danielle Mashy. but three returnees have had significant playing experience: sophomore outside hitter Leigh Marston. junior outside hitter .Vlichelle Moll and sophomore middle-bltKker Jenny Swart. " On paper, if you were on the outside looking in. it would he a traditional rebuilding year. ' " said DeGroot. With the addition of several exciting recruits to the core of returning players. Cal liKiks to use plenty of hard work this spring, plus a little sports psychology, to overcome the Iruslrations of the past season. " In my six years here, this was the hardest-working team I ' ve ever had. " said DeGrixM. " 1 think if everything falls together next year, we ' re gonna be fairly good.

For any other team, that might have been considered a landmark season. But lor the Bears, coming oft ' lhree straight years as national cham- pions, it was something of a letdown. " We were a little disappointed al the NCAA tournament that we ended up third. " said head coach Steve Heaston, in his fifth year at the Bears ' helm. " You ' re always shooting to be in that final game - that ' s your goal. " The Bears got off to a strong start with wins against UCSD. Long Beach State and UCLA in the Southern California Tournament. But their loss to UC Irvine on Sept. 18 broke a 47- match win-streak dating back to IWI. An up and dow n season followed, as the team struggled to mature. " Each team has its own personality, and especially this year, with a lot of new play- ers, a lot of new faces, they were trying to establish themselves as a team. " said Heaston. Of the Bears ' nine losses - the most in a season since 1985 - seven came at the hands of either No. 1 Stanford or No. 2 USC. And although L ' SC won five out of six matchups with Cal this year, the Bears made them work hard for every victory: four losses were by a single point, the fifth by a scant two. Even with the frustrating losses, the sea- son was hardly devoid of bright spots.

There the Bears were able to turn the season ' s slow start into a respectable finish, trouncing Massachusetts 17-4 in the first round before falling 1 1 - 1 2 in an overtime heart- breaker versus USC dousing the Bears hopes for an unprecedented fourth straight NCAA title. The Bears returned to dcleat UC Irvine for a third place finish. " This season we took a lot of games for granted. 1 don ' t think we realized how important the season was. " said junior driver Mike Sparling. " We always thought we ' d be in the champion- ships, so to lose. I think, woke us up. It motivates us to do better next year.

Congress passed into law the Education Amendments of 1972. Included in these amendments was Title IX. which mandates that nn educational program or activity receiving federal money may dis- criminate against anyone on the basis of gender. Originally, the law- makers ' piimary intent was to guarantee women access to educational programs such as law and business school, but in the last several years. Title IX has increasingly become associated with athletics. As women achieve equality, or some degree thereof, in areas like business and politics, the tight for gender equil has approached that last bastion of male dominance, sports. With female athletes taking their battle off the court and into the cimrts. government-funded colleges and universities suddenly find themselves scrambling to comply with a law that had been largely Ignored for two decades. Yes. women ' s athletics grew in the 70s and 80s - Cal added its first women ' s intercollegiate sports in 1976; by 1983. when women ' s soccer was added, the number of varsity sports available to women had grown to 1 1 (comparedto 13formen). Butlawsuitslike the one brought by the National Organization of Women against the California State Univer- sity system last year are forcing schools to examine everything from financial aid dollars to practice times to determine if w omen ' s sports are playing on an even field. To that end. last year the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics formed a Gender Equity Committee, made up of coaches, athletes and athletic directors of both sexes. " In the last year, with the push from the NCAA on gender equity, and the lawsuits, whether it ' s forced or not. I think there ' s much more concern with equality. " said women ' s volleyball coach Dave DeGroot. I think it ' s starting to happen. " The committee found that Cal does not meet the test of strict proportionality: the undergrad population is S. .C male and 46.9 female, while the student athletes are 67.4 " ; male and 32.6 ' " ( female. The committee proposes four ways to amend this situation: I )add women ' s sports; 2) limit squad sizes; 3) add numbers to existing women ' s teams: or 4) drop men ' s sports. While no one is excited about the fourth alternative, the idea of adding w omen ' s sports is a fresh one. The committee suggests, in order of preference, women ' s water polo. golf, lacrosse, synchronized sw im- ming and rugby. . but rugby have established club teams already at Cal. and the opportunity for immediate league competition with other schools. In fact, by 199. ' i. Stanford and UCLA, along with seven other Southern California schools, will have varsity women ' s water polo. Tm lOO ' r behind women ' s sports, and especially women ' s water polo. " said men ' s water polo coach Steve Heaston. " It ' s an important move for the university to include them as a varsity sport " The only drawback to establishing new sports is the cost: in a lough economy like today ' s, coming up with enough mone for the old sports is hard enough. " I hope the economy overall allows those opportunities to develop. " said field hockey coach Donna Pong. Field luK ' key receives very little funding and offers no scholarships. If every thing comes together, though, w ho knows - someday you just might be enlunng up to Strawberry Field to watch the women rucbv team dofeal Slanford ■ Water Polo 209 New Sheriff in Town John Kasser Cal ' s New A.D. b) Sitphtn I ' iilticl In 1W3. when Alhlclic Director Bob Bockralh ac- cepted a similar position at Texas Tech. Cal had become a career steppiny-stone lor AD ' s. The sudden departures ol Dave Maggard to the University of Miami and now Bockrath caused genuine concern amongst both the UC administration and the student body. The Athletic Department had just completed an ambi- tious merger of the mens and women ' s departments, and was in the process ol ' construcling or remodehng numerous facili- ties. Many sports programs, led by basketball and football. were regaining national prominence, and solid leadership was needed to keep the department running smoothly. Carol T. Christ, chair of the Search Committee, re- viewed 58 candidates for the job and created a shonlist including San Jose State ' s head basktball coach Stan Morrison (Cal ' 61). Cal ' s Executive Associate Athletic Director Bob Driscoll and L ' C Santa Barbara ' s AD. John Kasser. On December . rd. the committee aw arded Kasser the job. citing his " strong background in athletics, fund-raising and alumni and staff relations. " as Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien put it. Ka.sser ' s previous job, which he held since 1988. provided him with strong experience in dealing with the UC bureaucracy. His familiarity with the UC system is comple- mented by his national prominence. Kasser is one of only 12 Division I AD ' s who are members of the NCAA council; he is a member of the USA Basketball Committee and he is head of the .NCAA Volleyball Committee. What ' s more, one of his closest friends is Cedric Dempsey, Executive Director of the NCAA. Aside from his connections. Kasser is a top-notch fund- raiser and is used to success. These two aspects of his resume may have been the clincher for Tien, who understands the difficulties of working in the financially constricted VC system. At Long Beach Slate, w here he w as .Athletic Director from 19K4-S7.Kasseronce raised ' s.llKi.OOO in. Odaystosave their Division II football team. Before LBSU. Kasser was AD at the University of Houston froiTi 1982-84. In that three year span, he sent three conseciMi e h:iskelh;ill learns to the linal Four, one football team to the Cotton Bow 1 and numer- ous other Houston teams to national prominence. Most recently. Kasser led UCSB to the forefront of the Big West Conference and raised funds to build a new baseball softball complex. In addition, student-athlete graduation rate rose from 60 ' f to 14% during his tenure. In his brief time at Cal. Kasser has already made a huge impact. He has raised the funds necessary to make three sports financially self-sutficient. Rubgy. golf and the com- bined crew program are now entirely supported by alumni endowments: their expenses may be written out of the Athletic Department ' s budget, freeing money to help other programs. Furthermore. Kasser has raised money which he has committed to the replacement of Memorial Stadium ' s artificial turf w ith natural grass. He also has a potential donor or donors for the expansion of Harmon Gym by .S.(HM) seats. Throughout all of this. Kasser has not forgotten that the , thlelic Department revolves around the student body. He has cut student ticket prices, eliminated an unpopular seating policy, lowered first-year alumni pnces and formed the Student Advisory Board to keep him in touch with the students. Kasser claims that one of his biggest nightmares here has been dealing with the various names the University is known by: " VC Berkeley " in academia. " Berkeley " to stu- dents and young alumni. " Cal " for football and " California " for basketball and elder alumni. He is working to have all athletic marketing of the University restricted to the script Cal logo. This will both help unify the depanmeni and aid in Cafs national marketing, which Kasser is actively pursuing Fortunately, this temporary setback has not soured Kasser on his decision to accept the .Athletic Director posi- tion. Grow ing up in California, going to school at Pepperdine and w orking as an AD in the L ' C sy stem. Kasser believ es that Cal is not a stop-over but a destination. " Id like to w ork here until I retire. " he says with a broad grin. " If you can ' t gei turned on by what goes on here, you better get your puKc chL-ckod this is a special. spoci;il place ' " ■ DOUBLP: TROUBLE: Look Out Bo Jackson - Cal ' s Own 2-Sport Athletes Several of Cal ' s athletes excel in not just one sport but two. presenting a double threat for the Bears ' opponents. Football ' s defensive lineman Brad Bowers and linebacker Marshall Foran lend a hand on the rugby team in tJie off-season, while strong safely Ricky Spears doubles at eenterfield for Bears baseball. Starting free .safely Jerod Cherry, when he isn ' t sprinting after USC running backs, spends lime as a sprinter for Cal Irack and field, while teammate tailback Tyrone Edwards conlribuies in ihe long jump. Several cross-overs from cross-country also fuel the track and field team, among them NCAA championship competitors Richie Boulet and Tenaya Sodemian. Before deciding to turn pro, basketball standoul Ja.son Kidd toyed w ith the idea of joining the ba.seball icam, and next year ' s star football recruit Tony Gon alez will also pound the boards at Harinon lor the Bears basketball .squad. asmmttasifg (, )l , THE imrWCE: f.iCilnimurH,,: h,„ to Ihe IW.

" Both of tht-m were self-made runners. I hope that they are an inspiration to the team and a guiding post for the recruits, " head coach Tony Sandoval said of his stars, both of whom represented Cal in the NCAA championships in November. Boosted by strong individual performances as well as by a solid team spirit, the Bears were able to finish sixth m the Pac- 10 despite their youth and a rather nebulous season-outlook in the beginning. " In years past, there w asn ' t as much cainraderie. " said senior Andy Boudreau. Freshman Kristen Mathcson echoed his sentiment, adding. " It ' s a great bunch of people, like a little family. " This support may account for the success of the women ' s squad. even when fielding a top-seven that included three freshmen: Matheson. Julie Meyers and Jenny Wong. The real stand-out among the women this year, however, was Soderman. whose third-place finish ( 16:49.1 1 on the 5K course) in the Region 8 Championships earned her a spot in the nationals. In the NCAA Championships, in Bethlehem. PennsyK ania. Soderman finished 37th out of 1S3 runners, with a 17:2?.(i time. Boulel led the men ' s squad, finishing fourth in the Region 8 Cham- pionships (30:04.8 on the 1 OK course) to also guarantee hitnself a place in the NCAAs. In Bethlehem, he finished 33rd in a field of 1 80. earning himself Ail-American honors as the 2 1 st American to cross the line. " I was relatively satisfied. " Boulel said of his performance, adding that becoming an All-American had been his goal since the beginning of ihe season. Other highlights of the ' 93 season included Boulel ' s first-place finish at the Stanford Invitational, in October, and Soderman ' s No. I perfor- mance in September ' s Fresno Invitational. Boulel ' s win edged race- tavorite Gary Stolz of Stanford, who finished second in the NCAA in 1 992. Ne.xt year, look for the Bears to continue their drive for excellence. as this year ' s young leaders return to anchor the ' 94 squad. Strong returnees, in addition to those already mentioned, will include .

The crowd, on its feet, claps along with the familiar strains of... Chicago ' Although the Band tends to slick to Cal tight songs for its grand entrance, anything can happen in Ihe world of the Cal Band, whose reper- toire ranges from the traditional to the wacky, from John Phillip Souza to " Time Warp. " always without missing a beat. Founded in 1 889 as the ROTC Cadet Band, in its current incarna- tion the Band has retained its mili- tary precision and high-stepping style, while developing a healthily modem sense of humor, making it enormously popular with students and alumni alike. " I get really pumped up for the crowd response. " said senior bass drummerChristopherHack. " We ' ve got the best student section I ' ve ever seen - it ' s nice to know that we ' re appreciated by the people that come here. " Don ' t let the crisp uniforms fool you - this band is as likely to break out into disco as it is another rendition of " Fight for California. " Still, the Band manages to walk that fine line between fun and bad taste that some other bands (Stanford, ahem) have had trouble distinguish- ing. Cal Band is one of the fes . student-run bands in the country. with 144 members doing every thing from selecting and arranging songs to charting their steps to recruiting new members. At the helm is direc- tor Robert O. Briggs, ' .SI, who di- rects the Band in performance. " Because the Band is entirely student-run. there are a lot of oppor- tunities for people to take leadership positions, " Hack said, noting that Band is a good resume-filler, among other things. Job-hunting advantage aside. members agree that their pniiiary rea.son for being in Band is the feedback they get from the crowd. " I think the biggest thrill is when we come out of the tunnel at Me- monal Stadium and the people are screaming - that ' s just the best. " said alto saxophonist Butch Peterson. Admittedly, there are also the little perks like free admission to games and cheap travel across the country . but these alone would hardly be enough to make some- one accept the ngorous schedule of a Band member. Although entertaining the crowd at football games is prob- able their most visible duty. Band members keep busy throughout the year attending sporting events from basketball to ice hockey as a Straw Hat Band, a group of volun- teers from the Band ' s ranks who sport decorated straw hats and est in place of a full uniform. " Because it is a volunteer thing, the people who participate are the people who really « ant to. whoenjoy perfomiing. " said Hack, accounting for the high energy level the SHB exhibits. Besides, adds John Sugden alto sax, " Straw hats make us look sexy. " In addition to Straw llai events. Band members also ap pear in the XO-member Concert Band, which gives an annu.il Spring Show, and a Ja Band. which participates yearly al the Pacific Coast Jazz Festival. Perhaps the greatest com pliment for the Band is when not Cal fans but ouropponents smg its praises: the day after the Bears blew out the Rainbows at the Uni- versity of Hawaii last year, the Honolulu paper gave Ihe " Cal Pep Band " an A-t- for entertaining the crowd.

During their stay, the crowd was loud, but not unruly, and some even managed to sleep during the wee hours. As is true of any Berkeley gathering, each participant came away with a page full of memories. Unique to this incident, however, each page of memories was accompanied by a page of basket- ball season tickets. Never before in its 85 year history had a Cal basketball team been so promising that students slept in line overnight for the right to tickets. But, never before had Cal returned the heart and soul of a Sweet Sixteen team led by the likes of coach Todd Bozeman and sophomore phenom Jason Kidd. Kidd. Lamond Murray. Al Grigsby and KJ Roberts were joined by returning players Akili Jones. Monty Buckley and Stevie Johnson and a solid recruiting class (Randy Duck. Anwar McQueen and Michael Stewart). The team was a preseason favorite, ranked as high as 6th in the nation, and was playing in the Pre-Season NIT. Disaster struck early, however, and Cal lost forward Al Grigsby to injury before the season even began. What was expected to be a temporary setback turned into a serious problem, and Grigsby played only three games before accept- ing a medical redshirt. Without Grigsby. Cal played well enough to beat Santa Clara in the 1 st round of the NIT. but lost lo Kansas in the 2nd round. Soon after. Cal lost its second starter when Johnson was released from the team; Bozeman cited personal differences, and Johnson left school shortly thereafter. The Golden Bears lost an exhibition game to the lllawarra Hawks, and. although most of Cal ' s starters were suspended for the game, critics across the nation only saw the final score. Cal rebounded w ith a gutsy win al Texas South- em. but could not beat Santa Clara a second time. The Golden Bears ' record w as 2-2. but a series of convincing wins brought them back into the national spotlight. First, the Bears won the inaugural Otis Spunkmeyer Classic, then they beat Wake Forest. Cal opened Pac- 1 play with home wins over WSU and UW. but lost a third staner. guard K.J. Roberts, to injury w ith a broken foot. Like Grigsby. Roberts chose lo medical redshirt the season, after playing in only six games. Against Arizona, ranked 6ih. the Bears sent the game to overtime on clutch 3-pt)inl shots, and then used the extra lime to beat the Wildcats, 98-93. ASU. however, shocked the Bears on Slevin Smith ' s 43-foot desperation heave al the bu zer. The Bears were visibly shaken by their loss to the Sun Devils, and followed with a loss at Stanford lo lower their record to 10-4. 3-2 With a full week lo recover, the Bears soundly beat the Trojans, and then proceeded lo pick apart the top-ranked Bruins, 85-70. Cal rode the momentum of that victory lo a road sweep of the Oregon schiMils. Reluming lo Harmon. Cal dominated Cal Stale-Northridge 93-63. and beat ASU 95-78 n i ' ultii ' l in a game which the Bears lost yet another star player. Freshman guard Randy Duck broke his arm hustling for a loose ball, and the Bears were down lo seven scholarship players for the remainder of the season. Alter losing to the Ducks, the Bears began Iheir most difficult series of games. I6lh ranked Arizona beat Cal in a game dominated by the trash-talking of the Wildcats ' Reggie Geary, but Cal was able to rebound quickly, and thrashed the Cardinal 80-62. The game featured an assortment of dunks from Murray. Buckley and Kidd. who led the team to an unprecedented 85 dunks on the year. Cal then took its show to the 7-Up Shootout in Orlando, where they dominated with a tremen- dous inside-oulside performance by Jamison and Murrav Cal was able lo beat UCLA, ranked 1 5th. but w as stunned by Pac- 10 also-ranked use. Burt Harris sank a 3-pointerlo lie the game at the buzzer, and ihe Trojans beat Cal by sending 3 ofihe under-manned Bears to the bench with 5 fouls. Coach Bozeman was forced to bring in walk-on Olatunji Dean, and Cal lost 86-78. The Bears returned lo Berkeley to sweep the Oregon .schools for the second lime. The game against the Beavers featured Cal ' s two walk-ons: both received significant play- ing time, and Dan Gura recorded his first ever NCAA triple- single (5 pis, 1 reb. 1 ass). After beating UW. Cal had a chance to win the Pac- 10 title with a win against WSU. The Cougars, however, were playing for an NCAA berth, and look the game 94-82. Despite iheir loss lo WSU. Cal earned the 5lh seed in the Western Regional of the NCAA Championship. The Bears were paired against the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay. Cal seemed lo be the heavy favorite on paper, but on paper is not on the court, and Cal was out-played by the Fighting Phoenix. Thedisappointmg loss ended Cal ' s season al22-8. 13-5. Whilelheendwasdisappoinlingforthe Bears, the sea.son was not without its moments. Cal ' s 14-2 home record was its best in 34 years, and the Bears also enjoyed success on the road. Wins al Wake Forest. Arizona and UCLA were all unexpected. No non-ACC team had won in Winston-Salem since 1990; the Wildcats had only lost ai home twice in 102 previous games; and in 93-94, the Brums lost only lo Cal al Pauley Pavillion. Afier the season was over, All-Americans Jason Kidd and Lamond Murray announced Iheir intentions to enter the NBA draft, and both are projected as lottery picks. Although Iheir loss is significant. Cal loses only one other player. Akili Jones lo graduation. Returning for the 94-95 sea.son will be seniors Buckley. Grigsby. Jamison and Roberts, sophomores Duck. McQueen and Stewart, redshin freshmen George Ashlev and Sean .Marks and vialk-ons Dean and Gura. The will be joined by another great recruiting class. Bozeman has convinced forwards Tremaine l-owlkes and Tony Gonzalez and guards Jeff Dayton and Jelani Gardner lo don Ihe Blue and Gold next year.

Men ' s Basketball 215 Late Night with Cal THE faithful SLEEP-OUT FOR SEASON TICKETS Spending the nighl on a sidewalk tor a shot at basketball tickets - is this a radio contest? A scene at perennial NCAA favorite Duke University? No. it ' s just another aspect of the fanaticism and hype associated with the Cal men ' s basketball team this year, w here the madness started long before March. In Berkeley, a town w here people sleeping on the sidewalks are usually either homeless or protesting something (or both), the thousands of students camping out along Cross Campus Road Sunday. Oct. . I became a media spectacle that drew reporters from Channel 2 to " Good Morning. America. " The line, beginning at the Harmon ticket office, stretched onto Oxford Street as over 2000 students diligently waited fur 1400 spots in Haniion this season and what many correctly assumed was their final chance to see Jason Kidd play for Cal. While the first group in line arrived at 6 a.m. Sunday morning, the bulk of the crowd began to pile up Sunday afternoon. " We got there at 9 a.m. Sunday and were still sixth or seventh in line. " said Amir Rafii, whose group, like many others, worked in shifts. " We did have a rule that everyone who wanted tickets had to spend the night, " Rafii said. Indeed, students did an excellent job of policing themselves, as event staff found Ihemselve overwhelmed with a record crowd of 6578 riotous fans at the Night Court scrimmage in Harmon in addition to the swelling ticket line. Many groups maintained lists of those ahead of them in line; to re-enter the line, a student had to gel confinnation from those behind him. As the evening wore on, the all-nighter turned into a sort of giant party, as students w ith couches, tents, hibachis and even televisions wiled away the wee hours. " Every time I was about to fall asleep, a TV camera would show up and people would start cheering, " said Rafii. " The people ahead of us were singing Cal songs because Good Morning. America showed up. " The atmosphere turned into a sort of weary comraderie the next morning, when a quick- thinking ASUC senate candidate passed out brownies to hungry fans and " Bear Territory ' s " Steve Whyte bought coffee for any takers. Many students, despite the good times, criticized the administrators ' policing of the event which included passing out vouchers in the morning and telling anyone without one to go home. Due to a miscount, tickets were still available at 4 p.m. Monday, while many who had spent the night went home empty-handed. " I think in the future they should sell tickets in September, before all the hype starts up, " said Whyte. Still, out of those that got tickets, it was hard to find a dissatisfied customer. " It wa.s definitely worth it, " said senior Steve Paltiel. " Getting to see Ja.son Kidd made it all worthwhile. " Besides, " it was kind of fun, " added Rafii, who made it to his 10 a.m. midterm, tickets in hand. --JT rolAR HI.

The Bears ' eiyhlyanic losing streak at season ' s end was the longest in school history, their S-2() reet)rd (2-16 in the Pac- 1 0) was the first lime the Bears have posted fewer than 1 wins since the 1973-76 season; this sea.son was just the 5th losing season in Cal women ' s basketball history. Despite preseason predictions of a low Pac- 10 finish, the Bears felt confident that they had a shot at riding as far as the NCAA ' s on the strengths of team leaders junior guard Jackie Lear, senior center Ingrid Di. son and senior guard Kim Robinson, all three experienced and talented players. Head coach GotKh Foster, in her 15th season with the Bears, had taken her teams to the NCAA ' s three times in the last five years, and hoped to capitalize again this year. A strong preseason start seemed to back up the Bears ' convictions: The hoopsters posted easy victories over Sacra- mento State, St. Mary ' s and Alaska-Anchorage. After suffer- ing their first losses of the season, the team got back into the swing of things right away by downing USF. They won the Tribune Classic, defeating Duke and boosting their confi- dence. The winning feeling was not to last, however. The season quickly crumbled away from underneath the Bears, as they dropped two games before their Pac- 10 opener, and then three more. In fact, the Bears were only to record victories twice more during the season, both times against Pac- 10 doormat Arizona State. Still, the win-loss column does mil always tell the whole story. The Bears played with hean and skill, but tailed to put away their opponents. " Even when we played well we didn ' t win, " said Dixson. highlighting the Bears ' frustration. The Bears managed to gi e teams such as Arizona, Oregon State and lOth-ranked Stanford a mn for their money, but all to no avail. Words like " heart- breaker " and " gutsy " were not uncommon in sports stories about the sea.son. Lear became the rallying point for the team, often playing the entire 40 minutes and leading the team in sconni; (15.2 ppg). a.ssists (4.7 apg). steals (2.4 spg) and minutes played (. 5.0). Even her dogged detemiination. paired wiili strong play by Dixson. Robinson and others, was not enough to carry the Bears. Dixson scored a career-high 2 points in a losing effort against Washington Stale, while Robinson ' s best performance this season also came in a loss: a career-high 23 points against UCLA. Dixson missed four mid-season games due to anhroscopic knee surgery as well, further hampering the struggling team. " It was frustrating, " said Robinson. " We just wanted to gel the season over with. It was like a nightmare and we were waiting to wake up. " Although the Bears will miss graduating seniors Dixson Robinson and center Louise Nelson, they hope to smell the coffee next season. Strong returnees include Lear and a pair of sophomores, guard Kelley Tatum and forward Kern Barrett, as well as freshman Liz Rizzo and a couple of talented recruits.

Nearly every major player suffered some sort of injury, but throughout the season, both teams were able to juggle their rotations and come through with winning performances. Led by third-year head coach Barry Weiner. the men ' s team fmished the season at 20- 1 I . securing a solid fourth place tlnish in the MPSF championships and sending several indi- iduals to the NCAA ' s. A highlight of the season was the Bears ' linal home meet versus San Jose State and Brigham Young March 19. Senior pommel horse specialist Jason Bertram, in his final home lumasaCal gymnast, scored a perfect 10 for his night ' s pertbrmance. It was the first perfect score in the 1 12-year history of men ' s gymnas- tics at Cal. and marked a personal goal for Bertram as well. " It ' s what I ' ve been working on for four years, " Bertram said. " It was great to do it at my last home meet. " Although they failed to qualify for the nationals as a team, the Bears did send Bertram and freshmen David Kruse. Trent Wells and Andrew Mason. Originally a walk-on. Bertram led his younger teammates with a win in his specialty at the NCAA ' s. Setting school records on the vault, beam and total team score, the 1 994 women ' s gy mnas- lics team finished the season with a 14-2 record ■ind a fifth place ranking coming out of the Western Reiiionals. 1994 Women ' s Gymnastics s) Karen Woo (Honitn ' s) The nearly perfect record shows how well the women adjusted to the new coaching staff. New head coach Altred Mitchell explained. " The team was really open to change, doing things differently, and it was a team effort all the way through the year. " Even with the changes, the team was able to beat teams they had never beaten before. In March, the Bears defeated Arizona Stale, which was seventh in the country at the time. " We had to be up for it. and we did a great job and we won. " Mitchell said. Next season. Cal will miss departing se- nior Cindy Tom. a four-year veteran of the team. She is especially talented on the uneven bars and balance beam, where her career highs are 10.00 and 9.90. respectively. " Gymnastics is a lot of fun. " Tom said. " It lakes a lot of hard work and dedication, but in the end it helps you set your mind to getting things done and working to- wards goals. " Freshman Candice Kwok, one of the team ' s greatest assets, wasCal ' s single representative at the NCAA ' s. " The feeling of getting something done, of achieving something, makes me feel different from everyone else, " Kwok said. " I like the difficult aspect of it, but one of the most important things to me is to have fun. " Kwok placed lOth in the vault preliininar- ies at the nationals, but missed qualifying for the finals by .05 point. With the oung and energetic talent on the team, " We should look as strong, if nt t stronger, next year, " said Mitchell.

Although the 50-50 Imish was not the spectacular pertonnance many had dreamed ot. the Bears turned in strong individual perfor- mances. Sophomores Larissa Herold (6th in the 4(K) IM. 4:16.83) and Anna Simcic (7th in 200 backstroke, 1 :57.4I ) both earned All-American honors at the NCAA championships. The Bears also sent tour other swimmers to the nationals: sophomore Akiko Thompson, junior Sheila Conway and seniors Alice Canlwell and Amity Hall. Despite the 18 reluming letter-winners this past year, the women struggled against gru- eling Pac- 10 competition, led b NCAA champ Stanford. Throughout the season, the Bears were hassled by a strong Cardinal squad, paced by Olympians Jenns Thompson and Lea Love- less. The Bears fell to the Cardinal at the Western Intercollegiate Invitational, in a dual meet at deGuerre Pool, in the Pac- 1 champion- ships and in the NCAA ' s. The Bears chalked up a respectable record against non-conference opponents, drownmg Pacific. Nevada. San Jose State and Fresno State, among others. In the Pac- 1 0, the Bears scored an impressive 1 59- 1 1 7 win over Arizona mid-sea- son, but it was to become their single Pac- 10 victory. Cal performed well in the Invitational meets, placing second of eight teams at the WII and first of nine teams at the UC Irvine Invita- tional. At the WII. Simcic. a New Zealand native, continued her role as a catalyst for the team, winning the 200 backstroke. " What she brings to the team goes beyond just her swimming performance, " said second- year head coach Ten McKeever, citing Simcic ' s ability to raise her teammates ' performance to her level. Next season, the Bears will once again focus their goals on the NCAA ' s, as they seek to improve to a lop- 10 finish. With the returning young talem, including freshmen Anne Illgen and Helen Salcedo in addition to others already mentioned, the Bears have high hopes for 1994- 95. - - 1 The men ' s swimmmg team battled fiu. mono, a bicycling accident and tough Pac- 10 competition to lake fifth place at ihe NCAA ' s. ending its season with a 6- .3 record. .3-2 in the Pac- 10. Although several midwinter meets were hampered bs illness and injury of key swim- mers, the Bears attained their goal of reluming to Ihe nation ' s Top 5. finishing behind Stanford. Texas, Michigan and Aubum. " It ' s been our goal all season to do well at the NCAA ' s. " said head coach Nort Thornton, in his 20lh year with the Bears. " We sacrificed at the Pac- 10 meet In order to be successful at the NCAA Championships. " " The Bears took 6ih place out of seven teams in the Pac- 10 championships. At the meet, they concentrated primanly on qualifying swimmers for the NCAA ' s; they managed to send 16 swimmers, second only to Stanford in sheer numbers. One of the 16 was freshman .Aaron Shapely, who placed lOthinIhe I OO-yard breast- stroke at the nationals. Although only Ihe lop eight finishers count toward a team ' s score, Shapely ' s strong showing promises good things lor the Bears in the future. Competing at the nationals, in Minneapolis, also gave Shapely a chance to have his family in Minnetonka, Min- nesota, cheer him on. an opportunity he hasn ' t had very often since coming to California. Shapely credits his easy transition from his home slate to the support of coaches and teammates. " After this season I definitely think 1 made the right choice by coming to Cal. I have made so many friends from the swim team: I ha e become part of their family. " " Ultimately, this team units deserves at least pan of the credit for Ihe Bears " successful season, along with plenty of hard work and focus. " Someday, " said Shapely, " I would like to make it to the Olympics. Being at Cal reall helps me to focus m priorilN as a swimmer ti ' strive for the best. With all those hard hours ot training, 1 still think Us worth it. " ' Other Bears finishing well at the NCAAs included: sophomore L ' gur Taner, winning the 2(K) butterfly and tying for second in the 2(X) freestyle: sophomore Ryan Cox taking fifth in the 16.50 free: sophomore Kun Eldridge taking seventh in the 1650 free: and senior Martin Herrmann, fifth in the 2(X) fly.

(Wl 224 Ruj;h SCRUM-PTIOUS RUGBY BAGS ANOTHER NATIONAL TITLE by Jeni Ternstrom Despite losing seven All-Americans to graduation last spring, the 1 994 California Rugby loam came out on top again this year, battling its way to its fourth consecutive national title. " The 1 994 season was a classic rebuilding year, " said llth-year head coach Jack Clark, who lead his Bears to a 16-4 overall record. " Losing those seven to graduation left us w ith an experience and leadership void. " Still, if the Bears were struggling, it was hard for a passive observer to tell. They carried their winning streak against American opposi- tion to 77 games, dating back to the 1 990 season. The Bears ' only losses this season came against Canadian schools, dropping two games apiece to the University of British Colombia and the University of Victoria. Entering the Pacific Coast Championships, the Bears outscored their opponents by an average of 52.9 - 1 .6, racking up si, shutouts during the season. Cal kicked off the season strong, rolling over the St. .Mary ' s Gaels 45-8. Clark, how ever, still saw flaws in his young team, particularly in the forward lin e. The Bears looked to returning . ll-.American lock Pete Codevilla to lead the way in the forwards, while center Ray Green. w ing Ovie Brume, flyhalf Kesier Wise and full- back Eric Harmon anchored a more established backtleld for the Bears. The Bears followed up their win in Moraga with a 61-5 win over conference rivals Chico Stale, then tackled UC Davis a week later. 52-0. Cal ' s tlrst loss came at the hands of UBC. traditionally lough competition for the Golden Bears. Against the Thunderhirds. considered one of the premier rugby programs in Canada, ihe Bears inexperience yielded a 28- 1 6 loss and iniiiated some soul-searching amongst the Cal M.|uad. " We can be a very good rugby team, but it doesn ' t happen just because we wear Blue and ( iold jerseys and previous teams have won cham- pionships, " Clark said after the game The Bears bounced back lo win four more matches before dropping a game to UV. another Canadian pow- erhouse. The highlight of the Bears ' season came in their final home game, March 6 vs. Stanford. The rivals battled it out to a 28-0 finish, with the Bears retaining the Scrum Axe trophy for the 1 5th consecutive year. The Bears at first had some difficulty pegging the Cardinal offense, which focuses on kicking the ball. But, by the end of the half. sophomore scrumhalf Kevin Dal ell had scored a try. and the following conversion gave the Bears a 7-0 lead going into the break. Cal returned strong in the second half, as senior inside center Rob Swanbeck. Dalzell and junior fullback Ian Tong each took their turns scoring tries against the Cardinal. " We didn ' t play as well as we could have, " said prop Brian Frantz. " but we beat Stanford. That ' s all that really matters. " Cal rumbled through the Pacific Coast Playoffs in April, defeating Washington, Or- egon State and Stanford in the finals on its way to the National Championships in Washington, DC. On a rainy day in the nation ' s capital, the Bears dow ned Air Force 42-2 1 to advance to the championship game. They faced Navy, who had beaten Penn State, and after a difficult first half the Bears were behind 8-5. A strong second half propelled Cal to a 27-13 victory, bringing the number of national championships they ha e picked up in the past 15 years to II. One fan at the game claimed there were more Cal fans than .Navy fans - incredible con- sidering the proximity of Annapolis - and the Cal Drinking Song was heard far and w ide. While most .Americans know little about rugby (positions like scrumhalf. tlyhalf and liKk are not exactly household words), the Bears do have a loyal following, and lots of alumni sup- port. " Our competitive success has as much to do w ith tradition and alumni support as anything else, " Clark said. Established at Cal in 1882. rugby is the oldest sport on campus. When he is not urging the Bears on, Clark keeps busy coaching the U.S. .National Team, the Eagles, which includes a few fonner Cal players as well. Prospects for next year look excellent, with only three starting players (Codevilla. Swanbeck and Green l lost to gradu- ation and an experienced team returning. ■ . .

George Wolfman, " Milano said. In the past 1 7 seasons. Milano has coached his Bears to the College World Series three times and made five NCAA post-season appearances. as well as winning a Si. -Pac Championship in 1980. Although the NCAA Championship still eludes him. the 1994 season ensured his place in the history books ahead of Wolfman. as Milano racked up his 548th win. making him the winningest coach in Cal history and dropping his mentor to third, behind Milano and Clint Evans, head coach from 1930-54. Typically humble after the feat. Milano reminded the crowd that he ' d " like to thank all the mothers for producing so many great Cal players. " Ranked 23rd nationally in the preseason. Cal began the year with great expectations. Senior Bobby Kahlon. one of the nation ' s top relief pitchers, led a field of returnees that included senior catcher Reed Aljian. senior southpaw pitcher Matt Toomey. junior first-baseman Andy Tarples. junior center-fielder Eddie Comeaux and junior shortstop Geoff Blum, all veterans of the 1992 College World Series. The Bears ' opening series, four games against the University of Hawaii, foreshadowed a difficult .season - the Rainbows swept the Bears in the Islands. Cal came back to take a game from the University of the Pacific on Feb. 1 . but promptly dropped three more to the University of Texas, as they struggled to bring their pitching and batting together in a single game. After their first eight games, the Bears found themselves at 1-7. Junior third-baseman Justin Stark offered an explanation that perhaps betrayed the Bears ' confusion: " We just can ' l get our pitching and hitting to matriculate coincidentally. " The Bears showed signs of life against Pepperdine in February, taking two of three from the Wa es on the road. Sophomore fielder Jonathan Petke ripped two home runs and Stark chipped in another during the course of the games. Cal also played impressively against UCLA in March, beating the Bruins 12-6 and . -3 after an 11-10 opening loss. Comeau.x. Petke and freshman second-baseman Dan Cey hit well for the Bears in the third game, as Toomey took the win and Kahlon mopped up to pick up his fifth save of the season. After see-sawing throughout the season and finding road games especially difficult, the Bears came back at the end of the sea.son for a 4- 1 streak in May. They ended the year by taking two of three from USC at Hvans Diamond to knock the Trojans out of the Pac- 10 race. Finishing the season with a 25-35 record. 12-18 in the Six-Pac, the Bears ended up fourth in the conference. .Although the Bears lost sophomore pitchers Drew Pearce and Ken Maire to early injuries, seniors Kahlon and Toomey did their best to make up the diflerence; Kahlon ended his career w iih 1 8 saves, the second most In Cal history. Freshmen pitchers Keith F ans and Drew Fischer also gained valuable expenence this season. Next year, despite some key losses, the young Bears should return toughened by theirexpenence.

Ten to be exact - ten new freshmen. Some people might worry, but this outbreak of youth doesn ' t seem to bother seventh-year head coach Diane Ninemeyer very much. " I feel great about this past season. " she said, " i think that our players did a great job this year and all the young players learned quickly and came through in some critical situations to help us out. " Some of these " critical situations " came up in two tournaments the Bears attended this year. At the Hawaii Invitational, the Bears emerged first in a field of 15 teams. At the Capital Classic in Sacramento. Cal faced one of their rivals, Long Beach, who defeated the Bears in last year ' s NCAA Regionals. The Bears topped the 49ers 5-3. a sweet victory so early in the season, especially for the young players. The team would not have won the games without the help of its key players. Starting shortstop Kendall Richards, who broke the Pac- 10 season record with ?iA RBI and a .430 batting average, was one of the team ' s leaders. In the Sacramento tournament, she slugged five home runs in two days. " She had an outstanding season and helped lead the way for the rest of the team, " said Ninemeyer. Gillian Boxx, three-season catcher and 1 993 first team All- American, was another strong player for the Bears. Boxx excelled on both sides of the ball, helping to keep the team ' s pitchers focused w hile still managing to setCal ' s career RBI mark at 108. Boxx ' s efforts helped guide two new additions to the pitching staff. Anne Walsh and Whitney Floyd. Walsh is a sophomore transfer who had a 25-7 record this sea.son. with 20 wins and a 7-0 shut out of Arizona Stale to her credit. Floyd also had an excellent sea,son her freshman year, pitching FAR A.

D-UP: Sophomore Ann Walsh pitched wellin her first season with the Bears (lefti. against top teams like Sacramento State (2-0) and Arizona State. Perhaps the most important key to the Bears ' success this season besides the players themselves was the motto the team adopted for the season. " One goal, one altitude, one game. " Li ing by thisone-step-at-a-time method helped the Bears move ahead even in the face of the losses against No. I Arizona! 10- 1. 4-3) and No. 2 UCLA (2-0,7-5). The Bears rebounded from their early losses to Arizona March 1 1 , coming back the following day to rout Arizona Slate 10-4 and then shut the Sun Devils out, 6-0 in a second game. The Bears finished the season at 39-19, 10-12 in the Pac- 10. In 1995, California will be short only one person, with the departure of senior Tonya Seymore. Seymore was a starting third-ba-seman. who did an excellent job this year. Coach Ninemeyer is looking forward to next season and expecting great things from her team. She expects the season to be smoother sailing than 1994. " since we no longer have so many young players to nurture, and we already know what to expect. " The team also has a newly-converted softball field to look forward to. While the Bears played their home games at Standly Field in Hayward this year, their tradi- tional home at Strawberry Field was renovated into a top-notch facilitv . with improved turf and drainage. Hopefully, the Bears can capitalize when they meet up with Arizona and UCLA there next year. NOTE: Two former Cal players, pilcher Lisa Martinez and outfielder Keri Kropke. gained some national attention playing for the Colorado Silver Bullets, the only women ' s minor league baseball team in the nation. The Bullets will play men ' s minor league teams and college teams. ■ Softball 229 On Tracks Track Field Makes Strides by Jeni Tcrnstrom Coming off a strong 1993 season, the men ' s track team had a reputation to live up to. The " 93 squad had gone 1 1-0 to win a No. 14 national ranking, but this year ' s team, minus lour All-Americans, looked like a challenge for coach Kr Hunt, in his 22nd year with the Bears. Hunt, recently named head coach of the I ' .S men ' s Track and 1-icld team for the 1W6 Oly mpics. pnned his mettle, piloting the young Bears through a rough stan and toward a respectable finish. The Bears struggled in their early meets, facing tough competitors UCLA and Texas. Bright spots junior distance-man Richie Boulet. Latvian triple jumper freshman Lenards Ozolinsh and senior hurdler Tom McGuirk earned first-place finishes for Cal in the UCLA-Texas meet. By midsea,son the Bears had gained momentum, winning a 4-way meet with Washington State. Sacramento Stale and Nevada at home April Id in dramatic fashion. Going into the final event nearly dead even, the Bean, knocked offpreviously-undefeatedWSU on the strength of McGuirks anchor leg in the 4x400m relay. The upstart Bears shone again in the first-ever California-Nevada Championships in April, downing USC. Stanford and previously-unde- feated UCLA to take Isi place in a field of 21 teams. " This does wonders for the team ' s morale. " team captain Jim O ' Sullivan said after the victory. " We always knew we had talent, and it ' s reassuring to know that they ' ve come through at the right time. " Boulet earned male Athlete of the Meet for his Ist-place perfor- mance in the 1500m race. Junior Lee Adkins won the long jump, and senior Kevin Keane took the high jump, his specialty. While the California-Nevada victory was a prestigious one. perhaps no victory was a.s satisfying as the Bears ' win over Stanford in the 101 st Big Meet. The men beat their Palo Alto rivals for the 23rd season in a row . winning 5 of 19 events and sweeping six. At press time, the men looked to sustain their momentum as they entered the Pac- 10 Championships and hopefully the NCAA ' s. Like the men, the women ' s track and field contingent started slow but picked up the pace as it went along. Despite an early loss to UCLA, the Bears came in 2nd of six teams at the Fresno Relays, and from there rolled into the WSU-Sac State-Nevada matchup, w here they bested all but WSU. The Bears saw strong perfonnances all year long from sophomore distance runner Tenaya Soderman. senior long jumper Camlynn Hall. freshmanjumper Amy Littlepage. senior shot-putter MisyMaloala. sopho- more hurdler Lavinia Henlon and junior discus losser Annette Kailihiw a. The women counted their Big Meet win over Stanford, after a three- year drought, as their most exciting victory. The team of Henlon. Chantal Reynolds. Tiffany Janssen and LaShundra Crummie took the 4x4(X)m relay at day ' s end. edging the Cardinal 73-72. The lady Bears, like the men. hoped to do well at the Pac- III Championships and send several qualifiers to the NCAA ' s. .Next year look for both teams to do well on the strength of returning young athletes, although the men will miss graduating seniors McGuirk, Keane. O ' Sullivan. Dingane Newson and Peter Simmons The women will lose Hall. Maloala and Gina Westby. Meanwhile. Hunt will continue to prepare for his Olympic position with enthusiasm. " I ' m very excited.

" The defeats against Stanford did not hehe an offseason for the Bears. The I W4 season was actually a turn-around from last year, when the Bears finished 8-12 m the Pac-IO South. This year, Cal managed to fiip-flop their record im- pressively, going 1 2-8 in the Pac- 1 and qualify- ing for the NCAA Regional. In the process, the Bears downed some formidable opponents, in- cluding Irvine, whom the Bears had struggled against in the past, and Pepperdinc (4-. I. which ranked in the top five in the country and was No. 1 2 when the No. 2. Bears defeated Ihem. Being able to face and defeat some of the team ' s old rivals has allowed some of the Cal players to showcase their talents. Among the Bears " standouts this season is freshman Michael Hill from Sydney. Australia. Hill u as " an excel- lent four-year investment lor the team, " since he has already proven that he can beat the top players from other teams, like Stanford ' s No. 6 Mike Flanagan. David Melmed. who has been playing number-one. had an outstanding record this year. Several of the departing seniors also leave w ith records they can be proud of. including team captain Steve Lappin, who played number-one singles and doubles this past season; Dan Hiddleson. who helped lead the charge against many a team: and Brian liagle. For next season, the loss of these impact players, along with two other seniors injured early in the season, is softened a little by the fact that Hill will be sticking around, along with some of the team ' s other fine players. Wnghl is also optimistic that there is a " really good re- cruiting cla.ss " coming in. including the No. I player from Mexico and two other big players, one of which is on par with Hill. All this gives first-year head coach Wright, himself a former Cal tennis standout, plenty of hope for the com- ing sea.son, which might very well lake the Bears to the NCAA Regionals afier three loss-filled years. After all, he notes, " It ' s my job to ensure that the team plays even belter than they did this year, which was pretty damn g(MKl. " The Bears bowed out of the Regional NCAA qualifying toumameni in the semifinals, but had a shot at sending indiMduals Mill, tiagle and Lappin to the Nationals. 232 The Bears finished the season at I .■ ' -9, -6 and fourth place in the Pac- 10. The Cal women ' s tennis team relied on the strength of its singles play, paced by national Top-2. ' iers junior Jennifer Poulos (. " i). junior Vera Vitels ( 6) and sophomore Pam Nelson (24), to battle its way to an outstanding season in 1994. The Bears ended the season with thei r first NCAA semifinal appearance since 1 985. having downed Wake Forest and Kansas before falling to Georgia before a highly Bulldog-biased crowd. Vitels. Nelson and Poulos continued their quest for individual success after the team loss, with Vitels ranked fifth, but results were not available at press-time. The Bears began their season on a tear. streaking to four wins (two of them shutouts) before suffering their first loss against No. 2 Stanford. In fact, the only matches the women lost during (he regular season were the two they dropped to Stanford and a mid-season loss to No. 4 Texas. The doubles team of Nelson and junior Keirsten Alley picked up its second doubles crown in a row at the Pac- 10 Championships. In addition to their billboard players, the Bears counted on and received strong play from a bevy of other players. Alley compiled a 13-1 dual meet record, while sophomore Nicole Elliot also competed in the top spots. Junior Valeric Poulos. Jennifer ' s twin sister, also presented a challenging front for the Bears ' opponents. " We have so much depth. " Jennifer Poulos said before her third tnp to the NCA.A tourna- ment. " The past couple of years, we knew a few players were going to win their matches, and a few were iffy. " " Somebixly different alw ays steps up and wins. " said head coach Jan Brogan. in her 16th sea.son with the Bears. " Kvery body on the team knows they ' re important. " Brogan was named Daily Cal Female Coach of the Year for 1994 Next year, the Bears will try to capitalize on the momentum and aiieniion they received from their first ever appearance in the NCAA semifinals. They will miss graduating seniors Cara Abe. Erica Hanson and Sarah Maynard, but will retain their three Top-2. ' i players.

Everyday. And that ' s just the morning practice. It takes a special kind of drive to stick to such a schedule day after day; as senior Jay Peart told the Examiner. " It ' s masochism, sure, but it ' s pan of being a rower. I think it fulfills that inbred need to have a grail. " As they strive to improve, the Bear race not only in the shadow of the Fruitvale Bridge, but also in the shadow ofcrew ' s illustrious history at Cal. The oldest intercollegiate spon on campus, crew boasts a long line of national championships and Olympic gold medals. The women, especially, would like to re-establish themselves as a crew powerhouse. They have not won a Pac- 1 championship since 1979. and a national title since 1980. The Bears kicked the season off strong wi th a win over Sacramento Slate March 26 and proceeded to roll over the competition all year, w ith the notable exception of Washington. The Huskies have dominated both men ' s and women ' s crew for several years now . and they weren ' t about to roll over and play dead for the Bears. At the San Diego Crew Classic, the Bears bested four other teams, including powerhouses Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, but lost lo Washington. The Bears had matched the Huskies stroke for stroke, and lost by a mere 1 .76 seconds. Despite the losing mark, the Bears were excited to have stayed so close to the celebrated Huskies. and were encouraged by their performance. " It wasjust awesome forus. " saidjuniorstroke Becky McCain. " We might be national contenders. " Pan of the Bears ' success stems from their nationally known coach. Anna Considine. vv ho came to the Bears this ear from Boston University. Th e Bears also pin their hopes on key rowers such as seniors Michelle Arzubi. Chelsea Dwyer and Ute Gaw lick. The Bears. 6-1 in dual meets this year, will prepare for the Pac-IO Championships in Sacramento May 21-22. with hope of bringing yet another prize cup back to Ky Ebnght Boathouse. " Ill Cal men ' s crew ' s worst nightmare this past season had been the Washington Huskies. They were the only team that Cal did not beat, as the Bears lost lu ice to the Huskies, once at the San Diego Crew Classic and once in dual races in the Bears ' only home meet. The losses mar Cal ' s men ' s varsity crew record of 5- 1 in dual races this past season, with wins against Washington State, UC Inine, UCLA and Stanford. In the Big Row, Cal retained the SchwabacherCup, rowing ' s equivalent of the Axe. for a founh straight year. " We made Stanford accept the fact that they didn ' t want to accept last year, that we were faster. " said third-year head coach .Mark Zembsch. " Which we only had lo prove lo them again this year when we beat them at Redwood Shores. " Cal could not have achieved its impressive record without its strong varsity eight and coxswain Pete Cipollone. The lone freshtnan of the eight. David Rhein, gained the honor because of his gtH)d techniiiue and strength. Cal will lose seven key men lo graduation: Cipollone. Steve Condnn, Chris Coslello, Ken Jorgensen, Andy Lynch, .Adam Mitchell and .Anhur Ware. The oulUH)k is still rosy, however, as the Irosh eight are currently second on the West Coast, and should be able to till the empty seals w iih vicor. ■ Crew 235 In the Swing Golf Gets Up To Par by Jeni Ternstrom The Cal golf team Tinished tlflh in ihe Pac- 1 ihis season, paced by seniors Phil Huff and Rob Martin and junior Garrell Larson for most of the year. While Berkeley may seem more comfortable as the home of sports like water polo and ultimate frisbee, the golf program has actually had its share of success since 1983. when it returned to NCAA status after three years as a club sport. Head coach Steve Desimone. Cal ' 70. in his fifteenth season with the Bears, has taken his team to two NCAA West Regional appearances and worked with several individual standouts such as All American Ben Furth during his tenure. Not bad for a team that doesn ' t even have a " home field. " let alone scores of devoted fans. The team does, however, have its own line of golf items, from golf bags to putter covers. The merchandise, with a portion of proceeds going to the team, sells at the perenially natty Geor ge J. Good ' s on Bancroft. The Bears ' sea.son this year had its share of ups and downs, hut overall Desimone is plea-sed with the results. " Overall. I feel really good about the season. " he said. " It was disappointing and frustrating not to be selected for the regionals. but I ' d give it a solid ' B ' on an A-to-F scale. " The Bears had their greatest achievement early on. taking first place in the Fall Wolfpack at the University of Nevada on October ?-6. That win marked the Bears ' first number one finish as a team at an event in three years. Huff led the Bears, placing second in a field of 72. while Martin came in at sixth and junior Rick Reinsberg finished Ifith. In the .Spring season. Cal did its best at the Stephen F. .Austin Crovs n Colony Tournament, placing second out of 1 8 teams. Huff once again led the charge, taking first place in the tourney to give the Bears their first individual tournament win since Furth won at USC in 1990. While the Bears appeared to struggle at mid-season, they managed to pull out the fifth place conference finish to end the year. Next year, the Bears will be without the ser ' ices of Huff, Mark Maguire. Martin and Charlie Wi, but Desimone remains optimistic. " We want to make not only the regionals. but we want to get to the finals. " he said. " I am extremelv optimistic for next year. " Another exciting development for Cal golf next year may be the addition of a women ' s team. As the Athletic Department searches for ways to boost women ' s sports at Cal. one of the teams they have strongly considered adding is women ' s golf " 1 like the chances of women ' s golf coming on board here soon. " said Desimone. " As to whether I ' m happy about that, my answer is a definite, emphatic ' yes ' . I think it ' s long overdue - we are the only school in the Pac- 1 without it. " Although the team would probably only be provisional for the first couple of seasons. Desimone is confident that the men ' s and women ' s teams could work together to improve the situation for both. ■ SANDMAN: Junior Jtilm Sihweizrr mhhtntd lht season, hut %htiulj play writ for the Bean in ' M-9S (topi.

Like many club sports, however, the field hockey play- ers maintain excellent standards and often contend with better- funded teams for national titles, all w ithout benefit of a single scholarship. " In fact, three of our freshman players this year graduated from that program at Berkeley High. " Kadanavich said. " and all three of them are currently on tJie US under-2 1 national squad. " The Bears also spon three older players on the regular national team. While the six member teams in the BAFHA are the only known men ' s teams in Northern California, tliere are " Compared to last year, our season was terrible, " said Andreas Kadavanich, a Cal grad student and team member, discussing an 1 1-2-1 season. Of course, this enviable record does look less rosy next to last year, when the Bears were undefeated and made an appearance at the national club championships. This year, the Bears will have to content themselves w ilh doing well at the Cal Cup Tournament to he played in Southern California Memorial l)a_ weekend. " This will most likely be our toughest competition. " Kadanavich said. " Every game will be important and the competition will be intense, including some of the top teams from the West Coast and Canada. " Playing in the Bay Area Field Hockey Association (BAFHA). the Bears are about fifty percent students and fifty percent community members. The team boasts a lairK inter- national roster, with players from Northern Kuropc, India. Pakistan, Australia and Germany, as well as a Scottish coach. Adrian Land. " In the US, men ' s field hockey is pretty much a Innge sport, " said Kadanavich. noting that many other countries have long-standing traditions in the sport. Working to change hiKkey ' s status in .America, the club has started a men ' s field hockey program at Berkeley High. slightly more clubs in Southern California, as well as a comparatively health) showing sprinkled along the East Coast and throughout Canada. " 1 play hockey because 1 think it ' s a great game, " Kadanavich said. " It ' s very fast-paced and exciting, not unlike soccer. 1 think it ' s more fun to watch than soccer, because the division of labor between moving the body and moving the ball is much better in hockev - more interesting plays are possible. " Men ' s field hinrkey rules are identical to the women ' s, but the style of play varies. " In general. " Kadanavich explains, " men ' s hiKkey is more of an individual game with frequent one-on-one play, dribbling and individual effort. Women tend to play better as teams with more passing and basic ball movements. Which style is better - or more fun to watch - is in the eye of the beholder. " Standouts this year were Steve Danielscn. Raj l ;nhoy (Cal ' y. ). Phil Sykes. Oamian Glennon. Pieier Laagav. Arshan Poursohi and Ka danavich. Next year, the team hopes to return to its undefeated status and to the national championships. ■ Men ' s Field Hockev 237 Of Ice Men Spills, Thrills Chills with Cal Ice Hockey After years v iih Mimething of a cull siaius among fans, the Cal ict- hockcN loam finally gamed some respect ihis year, finishing second in ihc Pacific Coast Hockey AssiKiation.

Of course, all ihe attention was somewhat hitierswect for the fans who had devoted the wee hours of their Saturday nights to hockey even when the team wasn ' t doing as well. Die-hard fans suddenly found themselves competing with the Cal Band when they wanted to yell Ihc ever-popular " Hey. goalie, you ' re a funnel... " taunt, or one of the less printable ones.

The Bears got help from a wide range of players, as Maurice Howell proved November 12: two goals and three assists in his first league appearance this season. With the San Jose Sharks ' success this sea.son, the Bears ' popularity should continue to grow - who knows, when they win back the Golden Skate from Stanford next year, they just mif;hi make the 1 O ' ClcKk New s 238 Ice Hockev Sailing, Sailing Students Take to the Waves Club Sports Berkeley ' s Rec Sports Depart- ment ofTers a multitude of club sports, from the off-beat ones like the waterski club and bad- minton to the mainstay sports like soccer and basketball - over twenty-five sports in all. The program dates back to 1889 when students formed the Handball Club; two other sports which have stood the test of time are Boxing (established 1919) and Sailing (1922). Practice 3-4 times a week. Regattas every weekend. Cleaning the stadium and hawking t-shirts to raise funds for travel. These images may not be the firsl thing that come to mind when you think of sailing, but they are a grinding reality for the Cal sailing team. " People have this image of people smoking pipes and kicking back, " said team captain John Horsche, " but sailing is very physical. We sail small, two-person boats, and you have to do a lot with your body lo make the boat go. " Aside from the physical aspeci, sailing embodies mental work, as well, as sailors try to second-guess the wind and waves. " I read a book where someone described sailing as ■football, but the playing field is always changing. ' There are no boundaries, " Horsche explains. " The key to winning a race is not only having the physical, technical stuff down, but also being able to position yourself to take advantage of tlie next windshift, compared to the rest of the fleet of boats. " Practicing at the Encinal Yacht Club on the Oakland Estuary, the team has apparently gotten a handle on that mental level of sailing that leads to success - in May. they claimed the Pacific Coast Championship title and will travel to the nationals June 2-4. Not bad for a teaiTi that has never had a coach. " We ' ve always been really successful for an uncoached team. " Horsche said. " In the national rankings put out by Sailing World magazine, we ' ve always been in the top 20. " Still, Horsche adinits it is difficult to break into the lop eschelon of teams without a coach. The Bears consistently compete against teams such a.s Stanford, which has two full-time paid coaches. Introduced lo sailing at summer camp as a kid, Horsche founded a team at his high school with fncnds in order lo keep sailing. Dedication like this is necessary for team members, as ihcy get $5(X) from the Rec Sports Department and have to make up the rest of their $40,(X)0 budget themselves. The team encourages both experienced sailon and curious novices to come out, and finds a place for everyone w iih the energy to participate. ■ Sailing 239 Supreme Court Men ' s Volleyball No. 1 Again bj Chris Barrett, Men ' s Volleyball I ' laver The IW4 season was an exciting one tor the 32-5 Cal men ' s club volleyball team, as we recaptured the national championship we had held from 1989-1992. finishing the season undefeated against club competi- tion, and with several victories over ranked Division 1 programs. The season marked the final campaign for seven seniors: Chris Barrett, Scott Bishop. Matt Clark. Cody Hcin. Raj Hundal. David Martin and Anil Patcl. The season began with the UCSB Tournamenl. an invitational toumamenl involving forty-eight Division I and club teams. Cal placed sixth in the tournament, after defeating Long Beach State and UCSB on theirhome court. Both teams had been among the top ten Division I teams. We also defeated UCSD and UC Irvine, who are also Division I teams. Following this tournament, we began the club season with early defeats of UN-Reno and league rivals Sacramento State and UC Davis. One of the highlights of the season was an invitation to play in the Golden Dome Classic at Rutgers-Newark, considered the most prestigious touma- menl on the East Coast. We defeated the host school and Hanard. and lost to eventual Division I champion Penn State. This concluded our season against Division I schools with a 7-5 record. Our league sea.son concluded when we hosted the league championships and defeated Sac State for the third lime. We entered the national championship tournament as the top seed. with host Arizona State as the number-two seed. After Arizona State lost in early pool play, we ended up playing them in the opening round of the tournament playoffs. After being down 9-3 in the final game in raly scoring, we came back to win a tough battle. We were again tested in the semifinals by .Maryland, who also took us to the final game before we eliminated them. We defeated tiny Graceland College in the finals, despite losing starting setter Martin to a concussion after a collision with middle blocker Barrett. Martin, Clark and two-time national championship MVP Bishop garnered all-tournament honors. The 1994 team was probably the best collection of talent of any Cal learn under co-coach Dave Nicholls who has guided the Bears to five national titles in his six years of coaching. Nicholls was joined for the first time this year by Rob Rios, who helped lead the Bears in a tough conditioning program and filled in for Nicholls at different times through- out the sea.son. All in all. the season was possibly the most successful ever for ihc Bears, and we look forward to continued success with returning players Chris Hopkins, Chris Rodriguez, Al Lee, John Lee, Pat Aparicio and Brett Cravall. ■ 240 Men ' s Vollt ' hall Not Just a Game EXPERIENCING THE ULTIMATE THRILL To you. Irisbee may be just a game for Sundays in the park, a quick and highly-portable way to pass an afternoon . But to the members of Cal ' s club team. Ultimate is a serious venture, a nalionally- competative sport that combines the intensity of soccer with the creativity of freestyle. " People don ' t think we ' re anything seri- ous. " said women ' s team captain Alison Hammond. " They see us as just a bunch of people playing frisbee. when we really do have serious training and goals. " .■ s proof of their seriousness, take the fact that the team won the national championships last year, although this season the lack of a practice field and key losses to graduation have hurt the team. The team, which used to practice and play at Strawberry Field, has found itself shunted from one field to another while Straw- berry is being renovated. These trials are all pan of the hazards of being an emerging sport: ultimate has only been around since the late ' 7()s or early " SOs. when it evoKed from freestyle disk- work into a steadily- growing sport. Across the nation, there are about 48 women ' s teams and probably twice as many men ' s. For Hammond, part of the sport ' s appeal is its malleability, as new rules and strategies are still being developed. " People are still try mg new strategies and thinking up new ways to play. " Hammond said. Aside from the innovation. Hammond enjoys the freedom the game allows, such as being able to throw the frisbee anywhere, or getting air when she lays out for a catch. Another of ultimate ' s attractions is that there are no referees. While intramural play calls tor provisional referees, " in real ultimate you pretty much cal 1 your own fouls. " Hammond said. " It ' s got a real team spirit about it. " Part of the game ' s good-natured sports- manship may be attributed to its players. " There ' s definitely a distinct type of person who plays frisbee - it ' s like a counter culture. " said Hammond. Technically, the game is simply " ulti- mate, " as " frisbee " is a registered trademark of the Whammo Toy Company. " We don ' t even use frisbee disks. " Hammond points out, indi- cating the DiskCraft, 16. ' i gram regulation disk the leaiii uses in competition. Developed with that quasi-scientific, emniinently practical and ultimately fun mentality that pervades ultimate, the DiskCraft conveniently holds four beers. Under the guidance of one of the sport ' s founders. Sarah Savage, and with renewed re- cruiting efforts, the Bears hope to return to national prominence next year. ■ Ci ' RTAIS CALL: Cinuh Ihlve Nicholh anJ sun Traii.% with rthliutHnn irnirir Ihur Martin. .Ktiitl Clari.

I Itimate 241 ROADTESTi Cal Cycling Hits the Streets l) Amir Kalli 1994 was a er ' successful year lor (he Cal cycling team - the team with the second-highest number of wins in US collegiate cycling history . The Cal cycling team is composed of a diverse group of undergraduate and graduate men and women. The men " s team consists of four divisions, while the w omen ' s team has two. As senior Jay Pal explained; ' It is a very team-oriented sport. The men ' s and women ' s points are added up, so everyone has to do well for the team to be successful. " The team not only made it to the conference playoffs this year, bui aisoqualitled for the nationals - an opportunity that only the top fourteams in each conference receive. At the conference playoffs, held in Reno this year, the Bears ' John Lim won the men ' s As Team Criterium. The season- long Omnium, aw arded to the cyclist w ith the highest number of points in the conference, went to Brian Whilcomb, another Cal cyclist. The cycling team works long and hard to achieve its success. Members meet to go on rides throughout the year, with fall training being somewhat less intense than their spring rides. During the season, you can find members of the team on the road every day, especially on the hills of Oakland and Berkeley. Races, each hosted by a school, are held every weekend from February to May. Depending on the division, these races can last anywhere from two to live hours. With a strong women ' s team coming in next year, the cycling team hopes to doeven better next year, an we wish these cyclists ( never call them bikers) the best of luck ' ■ " For all our admiration of Jason, Lamond, et al. as athletes, the real heroes are the people you never hear of, who labor in near-total obscurity, and who do it all for the greater glory of Cal... I know a guy who was on the Cal squash team - he had no scholarship, of course, and in addition to his .schoolwork he held down a job, and had to practice at odd hours so as not to conflict with PE classes or rec sport time, and for a couple of years the old, dank squash courts weren ' t even regulation size - and yet his team would go back East and beat the hell out of the Eastern schools, where squash is really big. This story is repeated a hundred times every season, in club sports like hockey, lacrosse and women ' s water polo, as well as in varsity sports like field hockey, gymnastics and crew. .Some of them are remarkably successful in their leagues, even though they have to recruit players who ' ve never tried the sport before college. Now I ' m not asking anybody to stop loving football and hoops.... but just for the hell of it, how about a rousing ' Go Bears! ' for all the rest of our athletes. " - Virginia Malzfk. GoBears network 242 Cycling If you ' ve ever dreamed of playing basketball in Harmon Arena, of hitting that winning home run in a close game, of running in a touchdown at Memorial Stadium, then Cal intramural sports are for you. The department offers a palette of sports from the serious - there are Softball teams that are out forblood - to the silly - witness the popularity of inner tube water polo. IM ' s give students a chance to get a taste of a sport even if they aren ' t blue-chip players. There are both recreational and competitive leagues, and all leagues get to use CaJ ' s top facilities. This includes Comp A basketball in Harmon Arena and flag football at Memorial Sta- dium, Depending on the league, teams can be co-ed or single sex, and the level of competitiveness is generally up to the players. There are teams with matching uniforms, who practice and keep statistics, and there are teams whose make-up changes from game to game, and whose primary reason for existence is that everyone present goes out for a beer afterwards. " 1 really enjoy the chance to compete in an organized environment, " said Steve Paltiel, whcse sofiball team. Wasteland Warriors, has been together for several seasons and won the IM Championships last summer. " It ' s a fun way to release some energy and hang out w iih my friends, but it ' s official enough that it ' s challenging. " ■ IntramuraLs 243 Cal Fans Go On-Line VMiai do ou (Jo when you ' ve jusi gotten back from Cal ' s TirNl bow I viciorx in years and your friends are already sick of heannj! about Berkeley ' s emerging athletic domi- nance ' ? If you ' re Re Sirafinejad. " 94. you start GoBears. a computer mailing list for Cal fans. " I started all this over two and a half years ago. " Sirafinejad said. " I was just a normal, rabid fan back then, w ho spent a little too much lime debating spons with people around the country via the rec, sport. football.coUcgc on ihcL ' senet. " When he got tired of arguing Cal ' s merit with fans of other schools. Sirafinejad decided to strike out on his own. Armed with his love of Cal sports, his sports knowledge gleaned as a volunteer in the Me- dia Relations office. Then with the help of those friends w ho were tired of listening to his raving. Sirafinejad started GoBears through the OCF (Open Computing Fa- cility). Sirafinejad gives a great deal of credit to David Friedman, the OCF staffer who set up the list. Although Friedman has since transferred to Cal Poly- Pomona, he still helps run the system from afar. The list started small. " In the beginning, we had maybe ten or fifteen people from around the country . " Sirafinejad said, " and back then, even that many people got me excited to think that there were Cal fans out there interested in what I had to say about Cal sports. " Over time, the number of suscribers has grown even beyond Sirafinejad ' s wildest dreams: thanks to an article in the California .Monthly and vigorous word-of-mouth public- ity among Cal tans. GoBears now boasts close to 4. ' i() mem- bers across the country and around the WDrld. including Japan. New Zealand, Hong Kong. Germany, England and Scotland. For many fans in far away places, be it Aukland or Oklahoma City. GoBears is their sole source of Cal sports information. " I ' ve been ama ed and thnlled to think that there are hundreds of Cal fans out there who crave informa- tion about Cal sports. " Sirafinejad said. Part of GoBears ' appeal lies in its immediacy. " E-mail is a very efficient way to communicate with people, " Sirafinejad said. " lt ' sfa.st,it ' seconomical,it ' seasy. " Many fans post their feelings on a game right after it ends. The list also provides an outlet for those Cal fans w ho just can ' t help themselves wnen it comes to talking about Cal spons. Sirafinejad himself has posted over 270 sub- stantial posts over the years. " I ' d probably have scared off all my friends w ith my non-stop talk of Cal spons by now , " he grins. With popularity surging, there has been some talk of the university ' s entire Athletic Department going on-line. As with niosi things at Cal. they ' re " still trying to find .1 budget. " but in time, the Sports Infomiation Departmeni could be posting press releases directly to the Internet. Sirafinejad is excited but humble about his role in making all this happen. " While it ' s somelJiing that was probably going to happen in any event. it " s kind of neat tu think that I had something to do with making it happen. " he says. In the future, he hopes to continue his work with the mailing list, regardless of the incarnations it takes on " It would be nice to continue to have a forum where Cal fanv can express ideas and emotions separate Irom a dry infor mation bulletin board. " Sirafinejad says. " Such a thing would have to be moderated, and that ' s where I hope I can continue to contribute. " " Hopefully, in the future, we ' ll be able to reach thousands of Cal fans as technology improx es. and » ith an luck, r II be able to keep on doing w hat I ' ve been doing and what I lo e.

Ll iil 1 ' i _ ..- V ■■ill Ml As the leaves grew back on the arthri- tis ridden knuckles of the English Plane trees that line Sproul Plaza and the light of the sun persisted a little longer every day, so Spring snuck upon the students who were barely getting into the swing of it. As the hours of dayhght increased, the days till finals te]:eased and students were the unknowing victims of this sapping away of -1 time. So as the 1993-1994 school year came to a close, the yearbook comes to an end. All the hard work culminates into thankine our patrons, congraturahng those that will be leaving Cal, thanking all those that worked so hard on this book and bidding everyone else farewell till next year. Our main concern is to insure that you get as much out of this book as we put into it. Mostly we thank the students for making Berkeley what Berkeley is.

Staff Pages 267 A Word from the Editors ' Dear Readers, When we began the fall se- mester, we started with a blank page. Wehadnopublishingcom- pany, no equipment, and practi- cally no staff. However, we did have hope, lots of optimism, and lofty goals to redefine the meaning of quality, collaboration, and the Cal tradition. All in all, the theme for this year is as much for the university as it is for ourselves on the Blue and Gold. This year has been one of changes and rebuilding, not onlv for the campus as a whole, as evidenced bv the ever-present construction sites but also for the Blue and Gold, the most fundamental of which has been the search for an almost all new staff willing to put in more than 100 ' ;, to bring the yearbook to new heights. From day one when we editors culled the cream of the crop from our first meeting-of-minds meeting to day two when the new staffers unconditionally (well, it might have been for the Togo ' s sandwiches) rolled up their sleeves with good cheer to clean up the facilities, the effervescence shown by the staff was the source of the motivation and persever- ance that would fuel this difficult year-long venture. Much thanks to Shih, David, Jcni, and Amber for all their hard work; they ' re essentially the backbone of the entire book. Kudos to Jason and his small but resourceful photo staff and Kathy for her precise and professional business work. Special thanks to Herff Jones representative Jane Roehrig for her contagious enthu- siasm and unfailing lovalty to our cause despite the odds. Of course, without publication adviser Jonathan Brennan and his ruthless contract negotiations, the book would not have been so successful. Finally, as one editor to another, thanks Lucy, for the extra shoulder to lean on. One word to describe the Blue and Gold this year would be epochal, sort of like the fall of the Berlin Wall. Well, maybe not quite as dramatic but ccrtainlv no less significant. Looking back at all we ' ve started to do to increase visibility, improve coverage, content, and form, 1 can safely foresee many more fruitful years ahead. Let the tradition continue. Sincerely, Debbie Yuan Co-Editor-in-Chief 268 One never really knows what to expect when they embark on something new. But a lot of the time, things turn out better than expected. I can only begin to thank all those people who were veterans ot the stafi who accepted my position without any reservations, I was a bit weary at first coming into the staff out of the blue. I never really thought I was going to get the |0b. I had hoped really hard, but I didn ' t think Id actually succeed. But here I am writing the editor ' s note and this year has been great. I think that the yearbook has had a massive overhaul That meant bringing in a lot of new faces and fresh ideas, i.e. a lot of freshman staff. In reality I love my staff, they have been great and I think I would have went insane otherwise. It was a challenge and exciting at the same time. Like now. While everyone is en|oying their summer vacation. I ' m still here! After all the rest of the staff has said Adios I ' m still trying as hard as I can to finish this book. But I guess that ' s why I ' m editor and they ' re not. But I ' m not alone, Debbie is still here, working as hard as I am, I ' m going to miss you Debbie you ' ve been great. I wish you all the strength at Columbia, Thanks like I was invading yourterritory Shih. I ' m working with you l 1 a y b learn with fornot making me feel with ou to call you to how I ' m to send fonts Kathy leaving us. You too something that I know decide to come back looking forward to next year, eventually I ' ll how to deal these conpulets having ask supposed Herff Jones. It ' s a shame you ' re Ju.ni You did a great job on was difficult to do. Amber. I hope you avid, you thought it was stressing now.... Wait till next year. But I ' m confident that together we ' ll be able to pull through , even if it does end up being a spnng delivery book. Till then I just want reiterate the many thanks to the staff and even you Jonathan, for taking the chance and giving me the job, I ' m sure if it was up to you you ' d put a pager on me so you could find me 24 7 But for now, I ' m doin ' the best I can. And finally. I need to thank my friend who said I could do it.even when I started to doubt myself. You know who you are. That is always going to mean a lot to me and it ' s something I ' ll never forget. Also I want to tell everybody that was ever impressed when I told them I was editor thanks for making me remember that I am doing something significant and making me keep in mind that it ' s them (the students) whom we are making this book for. Till next year. I hope that this book becomes precious to all of you and yours as a keepsake for all times. We ve worked hard so that you could enjoy it. They always say that the college years are the besl At least now you having something to remember them by when your memory begins to fade. -M. Lucy Tarin CoEditor-in-Chief Blue and Gold 1993-94 PS To all those who I know and to all those I don ' t know, you better take your Senior photos when you graduate because I would love to be able to flip through the yearbook 1 years from now and see your face among the many. After a year of pushing and shoving just to get by, students are glad it all comes to an end. For some it really is the end. For others it just means a two and a half month vacation. WAITING for it TO BE OVER The fall semester came and went like a cool bav area breeze. Another semester closer to being done forever. How quickly one forgets the things we learned that we ' re supposed to retain forever (or at least till we need it). The holiday vacations were a much needed hiatus for many of us, while a few pined for the days of class and stress after about a day of being with our respective families. Then came the long awaited spring semester that brought with it warm spring days and carefree feelings. Days of holding class on the lawn or skipping class just to sit on the lawn and chat with friends. Whatever the reason, it was spring and that seemed to be reason enough. Much too quickly the days passed and soon itchings of summertime started to strike. But for some, the proximity of graduation was on their minds. Graduation, the event thev never really thought they ' d accom- the theme during finals week of the spring se- mester. Here Eshleman library is relatively empty which was rare since it remained open 24 hours all through finals.

Somehow, some wav it was here and before they knew it their life at Cal was coming to an end. ..if they could only get through finals. For others, watching the graduates walking around, donning their robes ga e a feeling of en ' y and admiration. Wishing that was you but at the same lime feeling the fear of what lies ahead. What- ever the situation, spring meant an end. At the very least, an end to the 1993- 1W4 school year. - i;iu Tiiriit 269 Sharing his philosophy about fife, movies and the human spirit, Oliver Stone wishes the class of ' 94 strength.

Tarin n ' v iiA ' i ' «i. • 270 Building the Foundation LEARNING « iiije ' B ■ LESSONS After step- ping off Berkeley ' s platform, students take off for a higher, bigger stage. No doubt they ' II re- member one fast rule - it ' s okay to bend the rules some- times. There are some who go about Hfe strictly by the book, hne by hne or word for word. That is not to sav that there isn ' t a nice sense of security to fee found in a daily routine — 7:45 am: alarm goes off, 8:00 am: breakfast bagel at Noah ' s, 9:00 am: first and last class ends for the day, 9:35 am: back in bed. Then there are those who open their eyes a little bit wider and a whole lot longer during the day to see and feel what a college experience could be about. They keep their eyes peeled for fliers ad ' ertising free plays, lecti.ires, or maybe even a discount plane ticket to Buffalo, ' N Y. They meander through the woods that dot the campus in search of the perfect spot to be lullecf to sleep by the beckoning symphonic waters of a gentle creek. Tnev may even decide to take a detour to cfeliberately end up by Sproul Plaza just to hear what the preachers have to say, for once — uninterrupted. Maybe by the enci of four years, one might realize that college isn ' t all about learn- ing how to take tests. It ' s also about learning how to beat Tele-bears at its own game. It ' s about knowing when to speak up in class and when to speak out. Perhaps it ' s finally learning to use professors ' anci GSIs ' office hours. It ' saboutdiscoveringa helpful, kindly soul behind that stern face, someone who really is genuinely interested in getting to knovv you more than as a name on the atten- dance sheet. Sometimes one has to be innovative to stay ahead of the game, like the students who get paid to be themselves in Schwarzenegger ' s new movie jiiiiior that was filmed on campus in order to help pay the rent. Life is a stage on which we all pki ' part . Graduating from Cal isn ' t really the end of an act but the procession from one life ' s stage to the next. If the real world doesn ' t sound too appealing right now, there ' s always rcK m for an encore — grad school, of course! - Debbie Yuan Closing 271 through a perfect night ti ;. e a t tho following year.
