Experienced and eager to work for a publication again, he was a true asset. His friendly enthusiasm and dedication continued throughout the entire year. On Sunday, July 19, 1998, Ken, a senior from El Cajon, Calif, drove home from a house- warming at about 5 a.m. to his apartment on Channing Way near Fulton St. Once in the underground parking structure, Ken was abducted and driven in his 1991 Honda Civic to Vallejo, w here he was shot to death at about 5 a.m. His body was found in a downtown al- ley shortly after. After friends reported him miss- ing early Monday, po- lice traced credit card transactions to two Richmond residents, 19 and 23, who were arrested as suspects the following Wednes- day. They face mur- der and other charges. A 46- year-old Berkeley transient was arrested the next day. When pohce arrested the Richmond pair, they found Ken ' s car in their driveway. Ken ' s talent and reliability quickly distinguished him as an exceptional photographer. His light humor, genuine warmth, and kind respect earned him many friends and made our office a better place. On the other side of our sor- row lies our gratefulness for knowing Ken.

Formerly ranked 2nd in 1989, the fall in rank reflects in- flation and the rising cost of scholarly mate- rials. In response, Chan- cellor Berdahl has pledged a total of $5.5 million of nev , perma- nent money over the next three years in cf forts to achieve parity with peer universities. 36 if f - t 9 M Ti KlmS K K ' A V y i a % : At the Helm D I lohert M.

We dressed up, polished the silver, and greeted hundreds of visiting dignitaries from aca- demia and government. After all, the largest PhD factory in the country was inaugurating its eighth chancellor on the threshold of the nev millenium. Indeed, this occasion of public ceremony was more tFian just novel distraction— it was commu- nity therapy: We truly celebrated the best of the institution, the best of who we are, and the best of who we can be And most were well behaved. The pomp of the circumstance, how- ever, could not be resisted by affirmative action and AIDS activists. The former, mostly students, chanted, drummed and demanded that Berdahl admit 8oo minority students who were " denied " admission in the entering fall class (due to the discontinuation of race- based affirmative action policies). The other group, representatives from the Golden Gate and East Bay chapters of AIDS Coa- lition to Unleash Power, demanded that keynote speaker Donna Shalala resign from her post. She had earlier in the week announced that the federal government would approve but not pay for needle exchange programs for intravenous drug users to help combat the spread of HIV and AIDS (human immunode- ficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The groups wanted Shalala to recommend lifting restrictions imposed by Congress that prevent federal funds from being used for exchange programs. The voices of discontent continued inside. At the top of Berdahl ' s remarks, several pro-affirmative action students sitting in the front rows of the balconies showered the crowd with hundreds of flyers. In the blinding spot lights, Berdahl looked out and up, smiled, and assured theiTi he heard their message. Indeed, much of his address focused on community and affirmative action (see pp. 52-53). Shalala was interrupted three times. Her last agitator, seated in the first mezzanine, was almost courteous as he asked careful questions about her responsibility to the American public with AIDS prevention. All were met with police, and most left immediately. One man who screamed his questions as he walked to the stage was forcibly removed. The reception planned in Lower Sproul was cancelled due to these groups ' noisy presence. Instead, attendees mingled briefly in the packed foyer and invitees for the luncheon squeezed their way out to Pauley Ballroom in MLK, Jr. Student Union. Berdahl is this campus ' eighth chancchn.

Berdahl u c berkeley chancellor oreseen Fori ' ; 49 escribe your background and how it has influenced you. Well, I grew up in South Dakota in a semi-rural agricultural area in a town with a population of about 60,000 or 70,000, probably 120,000 now. My mother ' s family all grew up in Ireland and my father ' s in South Dakota. My great grandparents immigrated from Norway on my father ' s side. My mother ' s fimily settled in Pennsylvania early on in the colonial pe- riod. So my family is a mi.xture of very differ- ent backgrounds. The influence of the Midwest is very hard to assess. I guess the one thing that it gave me was a sense of the country that is hard to get by living on either coast. The vast stretch of America between the two coasts becomes relatively unknown terrain for people who live on the coasts. I think that there existed in the Midwest, when I was growing up, a kind of healthy conservatism. A conser- vatism that didn ' t embrace change for the sake of change but also recognised that change was inevitable, I think that the value system was very strong and that there is a very high regard for integrity there because people put a great deal of stock into their relationships and trust. My father really was a man of great integrity and he has probably been my great- est influence. His expectations were high in terms of achievement. He was certainly, for his generation, a well educated man and there was never any doubt about the importance of education growing up. Do you feel that Berkeley has become home? That comes slowly, but I do feel at home on the campus. I was coming back from an evening event at the faculty club, walking back over to my office, and I was reflecting a bit on my fither because it was his birthday and I had remembered, well, he ' s been dead for 22 years. I thought of the campus as it m.ust have looked when he was here. I sud- denly felt very much at home, and I felt as though I belonged here. It was a very impor- tant emotional moment How would you describe your style? I di)n ' i know how to exactly describe my style. I think that on the one hand I am a fairly impatient person. I am impatient when things go very slowly. It ' s hard to move things forward, and 1 have experienced some impa- tience at how things move here. I am impa- tient when I think that people are not as responsive as they need to be in what is ultimately an institution that is aimed at pro- viding service to others. ff IVe So in that sense, I think that I am a lot like Chang-Lin Tien (the previous chancel- lor). I think that Tien was very committed to making this university very service oriented towards students and I feel that I share that passion very much with him. It maybe gets expressed a little differently in that I ' m not out there on the frontline quite as much as Tien was at the football games, or leading cheers, or conducting the band. And maybe that ' s partly because I ' m not living on cam- pus quite yet and I ' m not walking around . ____ _ campus as much as I would like. But I ' m very con- cerned about the ex- perience that students have here. I ' m very concerned with un- dergraduates, out- reach, maintaining our status as a pre- miere research univer- sity, and recruiting and training the very best faculty. I ' m con- cerned that we main- tain a diverse student body and keep that diversity an objective of the campus despite the passing of Prop- osition 209. Do you recall a time when you felt discrimi- nated against? can ' t really claim to have ever felt dis- criminated against. There are times when I have felt as an out- sider, but that ' s a little different. I don ' t think my passion for devel- oping a society in which we really achieve racial justice and equality comes from my personal experience. I think it comes out of my study of history and my having grown up in the 6o ' s and coming of age when the civil rights move- ment was very strong. But, you know, I ' m a white male. I have felt like an outsider when I lived abroad and I spent long periods of time in Germany, having lived there for two periods of two years each in the 6o ' s and then again in the 70 ' s. There were times that I also have to say that because Texas is a very unique place in America, in the sense that you never become a Texan, I felt like ar outsider When you move to California, withir a very short period of time, you feel yoursel to be a Californian. What do you believe are the crucial issues fac ing your administration? Obviously, the most crucial issue is how dc we continue to recruit and retain the very best faculty and that means paying carefu attention to the compensation that the fac Been Around Colleges Since I Was 18 " N T E R V I E W 1 On Miirih 11. iggiS, Cfiiiiuvllin- Bcrdiihl Mt or ii inu ' -licu r intcri ' Jc ' u ' icitli Eva Fdwlcwikd m h]i ofjicc w Caltjornici Hdll ulty receives. This is a very high cost area ii which to live and so we ' ve got to have iaculf salaries that are not just competitive wit! other universities, but are competitive in term of purchasing power Creating a research environment in whicl faculty can do their work most readily I .ilsi think is vital Faculty ' ho come to Berkeley expect to find here an enxironmcnt that sup ports their work and enables them to do the! best work here That means facilitating ai environment where they can work and inter act with colleagues. It means maintaining . 50 earch support structure that extends from : quality of laboratories to the quality of nputing services, and to the safety and ility ol buildings in which the laboratories i the oilices are housed. And above all, it ludes a library that continues to support t research. As I think ol those things, clearly the rary is a very critical issue for us. The ond thing is the computer infrastructure the campus. The third thing is just the those fronts, I ' ll feel really pleased. What do you believe to be the best way to handle the library funding crisis? I think it it will require additional invest- ment in staff and materials. It won ' t all be dissolved by money because there isn ' t much money to draw from and doing so will not alleviate the structural problems. Developing collaborative library alliances with Stanford, Davis and UCSF so that materials are not Chancellor Berdahl is joined by his family and Richard Atkinson at the Inaugural luncheon in Pauley Ballroom ?sical well-being of the campus. About 25 ■cent of the campus is either rated poor or y poor seismically so we have been very ;ressive in launching a project to improve 5. Beyond that, I am also concerned that focus on undergraduate education, and ke certain that we are giving these very e undergraduates a strong learning envi- iment whether its in the classroom or in : laboratory or in the library. It is impor- t that we build a sense of community lere people really want to see one another their best. If I can move us forward on duplicated and building collections that com- plement one another offer a viable remedy. A recent article in the Dally Callfornian cited a study which revealed a disproportionately low number of women faculty and staff members on campus. How do you feel about this? I think that we ' ve made big progress over the last 20 years in this area and that in a lot of disciplines, a significant portion of the new hires have been women. I am personally very concerned about the issue. I have two daugh- ters, one is a ftculty member at the Univer- sity of Minnesota, the other is finishing a Ph.D. and is in the academic market right now And so I am very concerned that women truly have absolute equality with men in the academic marketplace. How is your administration preparing to ad- dress the new admissions statistics? e have done everything that we can to interest minority students who applied to Berkeley. We have broadened the cri- teria by which students are reviewed for admission to make certain that we are looking not just at standard- ized scores or grade point averages, though those are still the single most important things that are going to determine whether a student gets in. We are focusing on looking more broadly at student indications of drive and determination, and perse- verance. This means examining whether they have taken hard courses or college prep courses when they were available. Whether they developed a passion for some sub- ject or some activity that would indicate they would he really deter- mined students. All of those things that give us a more whole picture of the student rather than simply a matrix of GPA and SAT scores. There is a very strenuous effort that exists to make certain that we are admitting the very best students without consideration of race, but the very best students on a some- what broader criteria. Once we have admitted these students, we will recruit them very aggressively, with the help of students, alumni, and faculty. We ' ve got a great story to tell about the improvement of sup- port services for students. We have dramatically improved the gradua- tion rates of all students which have risen, in a period of about 16 years, from 6a to 80 percent. Having said all of that, I think that most of us believe that, without taking race into account in the process, we ' re likely to see the number of underrepresented minority students here drop and that is a serious concern to me. How do you feel personally about this chang- ing mix in the student population? Well, I ' m saddened by it, because I think the campus is the richer for having a more di- verse student body. But we do still have a [ tlNTINL ' ts ON ' IK.. 5i] Focus 51 AUGURAL Address EXCERPTS Pivst ' nic ' J ii( Id , ' i) a.m., April J4. iggS Zt ' lL ' rhiich Auditoitun) owever honored and grateful and humbled I am to he standing here as the eighth Chancellor of the University of California, Berke- ley—and I am enormously honored, genuinely grateful, and profoundly humbled — this occasion is more than anything an opportunity to cel- ebrate the founding of this great University in all of its blue and gold glory. It is diffi- cult for us, removed from that event by 130 years of history, to appreciate fully the boldness and the vision that it took to build a university on this distant shore of the American conti- nent, just 20 years after California ' s frontier existence was forever shat- tered by the discovery of gold. Not everyone shared that optimistic vi- sion of the future of California held by our founders here are still many things about the human spirit that are unknowable, vague, unpredictable. immeasura unanswera Renewing our research infrastruc- ture must be our highest priority if we are to sustain our preeminence as a research university into the twenty-first century. This will require capital expenditures by the State, by the Unixcrsity, and by our supportive donors. The future research capacity of this Univer- sity, which we take so easily for granted, is neither inevitable nor assured. But it must be. Because the future vitality of our economy, our society, and our culture in an information age depends on it. The dimensions of the known world are expanding dramatically and rapidly, generating new knowledge and new certainty to our under- standing of the physical world Yet, we should avoid being seduced into believing that only knowledge and learning produced by science is useful or practical or worth learning. We must also appreciate the importance of reinterpreting, of reapplying knowledge that has been known f or a long time. As we are awed by greater certitude about the physical world, we ought also to be challenged by an appreciation of what can be called the " .irts of uncertainty. " I have always liked the term for the humani- ties, Geisteswiiiin chdjun . ihe sciences of the spirit. because of its focus on spirit and its reminder that there are still many things about the human spirit that are unknowable, vague, unpredictable, immeasurable, unanswerable. Professional education has always been and will always be central to our mission and we will explore new ways to strengthen our professional tools. But to those who argue that students should learn only what is practical and useful, we will respond emphatically that nothing is more prac- tical and useful than a refined and educated mind. Nothing is more practical than critical thinking, nothing more useful than a mind that can grasp the genuine complexity of difficult human problems and avoid the lure of simplistic explanations. Nothing is more useful than understanding the moral dilemmas that confront the human condition. And nothing is more needed by our country than citizens who understand the fun- damental ecology of a just society— that you have to give back as much as you take from it. The education we provide our students must there- fore aim at their technical expertise or professional skills. Our education must derive from the recognition that few problems, few issues, and few discoveries are any longer, if they ever were, the province of a single discipline. Amidst greater specialization must also come greater reintegration. That reintegration is tak- ing place in virtually every corner of the campus with the initiatives un- derway in bioengineering, neuro- science, and material science to name but a few examples; it is also evident in the Townsend Center for the Hu- manities and the newly proposed Center for the Arts. ble, ble. ' II The greater challenge of our public mission does not come from our becoming more a pri- vately funded University, hut from the rapidly changing demographics of California and the na- tion. In a few years, just after the turn of the century, California will have no majoritv popu- lation. If nothing changes in the composition oi our student body from that which we are likely to enroll in our freshman class of 1998, it be- comes clear how unrepresentative our student body will be of the population of California. If nothing changes, almost half of California ' s popu- lation will provide only about six percent of our student body. It is not our mandate to mirror precisely the population of California, hiii how are we to sustain public support il we do not better repre- sent the impressive diversity that distinguishes this state? More significant, however, is the com- pelling educational, moral, and public obligation we have to make certain that we are accessible to students of all ethnic backgrounds and experi- ences. It is this obligation that will require us to reassert the historic land-grant mission of this University. OriginalK ' aimed at directing research to improve the plight of a rural, agriculturally- based society, we now must direct this educa- tional ethic of a service to society to impro ' e the lives of people in today ' s urban America as well as the rural regions of our states. And there is no greater need in our cities than to improve the educational opportunities of America ' s children. We at Berkeley must marshal our intellectual and imaginative resources to renew and rebuild public education in California. We must bring the research capacity we enjoy 10 collaborate with our colleagues in secondary and elementary schools so that we can improve the education ol every young person in our state We must en- courage more of our students to become in- volved in ihe schools, to consider teaching ca- 52 I :rs, and we need to develop the means to help s teachers already in the profession, struggling ightily against difficult odds, to help young- :rs succeed. This must be seen by faculty in all sciplines, not merely in the College of Educa- in, as a task vital to our future. Only if we do this can we continue to lay lim to being a public university, fulfilling com- :tely the public obligations given us as a " pub- trust " by our charter. Only if we do this can : realize as an institution what I have called the :ology of a just society, " giving back what we « from it. I have spoken primarily about what I per- ive to be the agenda for the University as it epares for the next century. But there is a fference between an agenda as an organizing inciple and a core value that binds us together and that gives a tran.scendent meaning to our endeavors How should we characterize the core value that defines what we are as an institution? here are many values, of course, that we share. But I believe there is one overarching value to which we should renew our commitment, for it is a value that emanates from all of the pages of our history. It is the determination to build a community of learners that transforms the lives of all who come in contact with it I was struck by the advice offered me by Clark Kerr, Berkeley ' s first Chancellor and one of the towering figures in the history of higher education in America. Recently. Kerr observed that, " The campus has been skiwly disintegrat- ing as a human community. It is much bigger, more fractionated in knowledge, much more ex- ternally oriented. " " Make sure, " he advised, that " the campus is a ibrant human community, " This is an important message. I do not believe it is possible to create com- munity Rather, community is something that happens. It happens when people speak to one another and listen to one another in an effort to discern the truth and to discover themselves in the process. It happens only in an environment of freedom and openness. Community happens only in an atmosphere of honesty and tolerance. Community happens when people care about one another and when they are willing to take responsibility for themselves as well as for each other. Community happens with education, as Hannah Arendt said so eloquently; Education is the point at which we decide whether we lo ' e the world enough to as- sume responsibility for it and by the same token to save it from the ruin which, except for the coming of the ne v and young, would he inevitable. And education, too, is where we decide whether we love our children enough not to expel them from our world and leave them to their own devices, nor to strike from their hands their chance of un- dertaking something new, something unfore- seen by us, but to prepare them in advance for the task of renewing the common world Renewing the common world must be our ultimate goal. In the final analysis, what we are as a University is not determined by rankings or prizes, important as they may be. What we are as a University will be determined by how we enhance and transform the lives of all people — those who become a part of this University that we cherish and the many more whom we, as a public institution, also serve. Today, as we cel- ebrate Charter Day, 1998, let us dedicate our- selves to the further building of a University at this hallowed place that will enable our children to inherit and renew the common world and to undertake things new and unforeseen by us as they prepare for leadership in the twenty-first century. Thank you. N T E R V I E W (continued from pi., si I very diverse student body. You can ' t walk across this campus without getting a really strong sense of that What is the legacy you hope to leave? Well, the story is not just told by me or by people in the administration or even by the faculty, the story is told by the people who graduate. And as I go out and talk to alumni, an overwhelming number would come to Berkeley again if they had the choice, are enthusiastic about the education they received, and feel as though it has made a huge differ- ence in their opportunities. So the story is told more by the people who have benefitted from a Berkeley education than those of us who are the servants of the university. We try to help make them come to life. This university has a reputation, pres- ence, and cache that is really remarkable. People know what Berkeley means. Berkeley is the envy of every public uni- versity in the United States. I ' ve been in higher education my entire life. I have been around univer- sities and colleges since I was 18 years The processional line-up old — that ' s 42 years formed among police and either as a Student protesters. Only ticketed j- |jy . guests were admitted. , 1 ■ ■ ber or an adminis- trator— and Berkeley has always been the uni- j versity that every place that I have been would most like to be like. That ' s a heck of a story. And that ' s been through some tough times during the student rebellion, during the anti-war movement, during the funding crisis of the early 1990 ' s. At every corner in that period, Berkeley is I still seen as the premiere university that people ' admire. That ' s a great story. How do you hope to be remembered? I hope to be remembered as a person who cared. I ' d like to he remembered as a person who made a difference in the quality of edu- cation, in the quality of life that people who experience Berkeley had. I would like to be remembered as somebody who helped Berke- ley remain the premiere university and per- haps even improved its position. FOCLS 5 3 ■ BY GEORGE STILABOWER Saturday, April 25, 6 p.m. A Gospel Concert utybound family and friends of music students usually go to all the obligatory concerts. They show up, applaud, congratulate each other, mingle and go home satisfied with pleasing amateur ef- forts. After all, students are, well, students, and the photocopied programs don ' t really say " professional. " The 950 people in the near-capacity crowd at the Young Inspiration Gospel Choir ' s spring concert at the First Presbyterian Church at Dana St. and Channing Way appeared to be such a crowd on this warm April night— nicely attired and patiently waiting. Then it happened, and all notions of amateur night disappeared. At the first bar of the first song, the poised choir opened their mouths and brought forth such a perfectly pitched, completely disciplined, and thoroughly felt harmony, so clean and lyrical, it literally hit the back wall of the church. Soon the cro ' ,d brought its hands together to the irresistibly high- energy beat. Many goi to their feet, rocking their shoulders in rhythm- first the choir, then ihe crowd. The unabashed joy of spiritual sharing was certainly in the .. ■ hui it was that sound, supple and precise, moving through the chu h with such powerful musicaliiy and grace that one couldn ' t help but be moved. Silvester Henderson, the director, had arranged for this concert to be recorded as the choir ' s first CD release. YIGC ' s first cassette album release earned them recognition from the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. as being the finest university gospel choir in the nation and was placed in the permanent collection of the histitution ' s African American Gospel Music Division. Rounding out the performance were several special guests, all former YIGC members, who had apparently only gotten better over time. " In Your Presence " featured Sherrie Wooten and Titus Starks in a magical duet which was mercifully marred m the mobile sound trailer outside, " forcing " the crowd to once again hear their voicCS ' merge into i ne harmonic instrument. Another duet sung by Melissa Bereal and Guy Holloman, " Make- Me Obvit us, " highlighted student talent. Ironically ,ind th.inkfully. theirs, too, had to be redone. Another soloist, Manuel Sarmiento, ha. ' a voice that could be listened to without fatigue for hours ' I 5 If there had to be a star of the evening, it was Idella )hnson, B.A. music ' 92, M.A. ethnomusicology ' 95, and a )rmer YIGC student musical assistant. Beautifully coiffed nd dressed in a navy suit with tiny jeweled trim, Idella ot only sang, she directed and played keyboards. But it as her directing that mesmerized. Those modern-dance ands— the way they punctuated notes into arcs of melody nd harmony was choreographic brilliance. If scientists vtr discover a gospel music gene, they will find it in Idella Johnson. But it is the choir ' s director who is the gristle of every rehearsal, le foundation upon which the students stand. Choirs of this calibre o not meet informally " when everybody can make it. " Known as a it of a taskmaster during rehearsal, Henderson can arrest the errant tudent with an unyielding look or a staccato " No talking! " Yet, Henderson is generous with his praise, affectionately saluting 11 the leaders of the choir with plaques at the concert, including Scott Berkeley s First Pres- byterian Church has hosted Cal s gospel choir concerts for years. The spring concert recording session drew a near capacity crowd. Shimotsu who sold 67 tickets, the most any member sold. The mood of gratitude continued after the concert— the choir for its director, Henderson for his talented stu- dent singers, and the audience for the rarest of evenings when loving dedication transcends sacrifice and delivers something greater than the sum of its parts. ]ust before YIGC ' s appearance at Black Graduation at noon on Sundaw May 17, si.v student members of the chon met with George Stilaboiver on a hill next to tlu- Greek Theater (where the graduation would take place). George: Someone told me many choir members don ' t have train- ing or don ' t read music. Is that ever a benefit or hindrance? Michelle Skinner: I don ' t read music. For me, and for a lot of people, because we were raised around gospel music, you have a sort of natural ear and it is easy for you to pick up on it. So being able to 55 Sherrie Wooten Of the approximately 50 voices in the choir, six members met for a group interview. They are: John King, soph., tenor MAJOR: Music Anne Lee, senior, alto MAJOR: Psychology Craig Milroy, grad student, tenor MAJOR: Public health evnvironmental engineering Michelle Skinner, senior, alto MAJOR: American Studies John Sparkman. senior, tenor MAJOR: Rhetoric Preston Taylor, senior, bass MAJOR: Political economy of industrialized societies Concert highlights Lord I Love You (composer unknown) Total Praise (Richard Smallwood) Rock of Ages (Tim Harris) Heaven Belongs to You (fames Bignon and Lanny Wolfe) Thank You (Keith Moncrief) We Sing Praises to the King (Frank Anthone White) Make Me Obvious (Jonathan DeCuir) I Want Jesus to Walk with Me (public domain — spiritual) I Surrender All (Idella Johnson) In Your Presence (Idella Johnson) rend mtisic is not a necessity. Anne Lee: I actually do read music, because I have been in- volved in instrumental music for a long time. When I came into choir, I assumed I had to read the notes on the page, and it turns out the way Silvester teaches us al- most never follows the notes on the page, so it ' s almost like a hin- drance. I could look at the notes and kind of see how the tune goes v hen I am practicing on my own, but as fctr as how he teaches us, it ' s never to the note. John Sparkman: The main thing is to look and listen and pay attention to Silvester and you will be alright. Craig Milroy: If everybody read music we could maybe cover more repertoire, but I don ' t think that is the focus. It ' s more tradi- tional gospel music; the section leader sings a part, and the section sings it back, which I think helps with the sound a lot. I ' ve noticed in other choirs when I ' m reading music, people tend to focus on the music instead of the sound around them. George : What was the draw for you when you considered join- ing this choir? Is it the musical integrity of the group or the emo- tionality of the performance? Anne: Emotionality. A friend of mine invited me to the spring concert and I was like " I gotta join this group. " And I joined the following fall. Michelle : I think everyone ' s motivation is differ- ent. For me, I would have to say it is spiritual emotional, because I personally would not be in a choir if it wasn ' t singing the things I believe in. But everyone in this choir is not a Christian— a lot of people are not They just like the quality of the music and they like to sing the songs. John King: I was really interested in joining the choir because there is a lot there musically. George: How did you find out about tryouts? Michelle : Somebody already in it told me I should audititin. It is kind of word-of-mouth or people coming to the concert. We have to have a limited number of people; Silvester doesn ' t like a huge group. Preston Taylor: We really don ' t publicize that much on campus. There are difierent focuses for the different events we do. We did a campus thing one night, two years ago. It was a really small concert, but it was for the campus. The big ones are usually for community, and we do educational tours for Shortly before they would join the rest of the choir on stage at Black Graduation, Preston Taylor arranged for six of the choir to meet for an interview near the Greek I u different high schools and colleges. Sparkman : I think Silvester secures the sell-ou concert for us by going out into the community ani selling it to people who really enjoy gospel music, raig: Well, I think part of the attraction is th guests that we have. I think it reflects well oi the choir that people of national gospel promi nence are willing to come and work with th choir. At the same time, I think if we publicirei more to the students on campus, then we wouk have more people from campus coming. George: Are there times v. ' hen you ' re finishing, hellish week and Friday rehearsal is the last plao that you want to be, or are you grateful to h.n ' c th ' musical outlet? Craig: I ' d actually agree with the latter I ' m graduate student, and I ' ve been taking 18 units mor or less. For me, it is sort of a recharge, and I think i is a great way to end the week. It picks me up. Sparkman : I agree, but there are times when yoi get there and you start to be a little tire, but a Silvester says, you have to rise above the level o your feelings. If you start getting into the music anc dance a little in your seat, you do get reenergizec 56 phitheater. Left to right, Michelle Skinner, John Sparkman, John King, Anne Lee ig Milroy, and Preston Taylor. it is a great way to spend a Friday night. George : How long is rehearsal and where is it? Anne: Three hours, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., in 12s rrison. During my freshman year, I went to par- every Friday night — frat parties, whatever — I went, dnt do anything bad — I was just going there for music, and to dance a little, honestly. But you only go to so many of those. Maybe I burned out it, hut after a while, you just get a very empty ing after it. I work hard during the week and I ays look forward to Friday nights. I ' ve been in choir for two years and that same level of elation )t at parties is constantly here, and it never goes ly! When I leave rehearsal, I am still singing on way home. Michelle : Honestly, 6:30 to 9:30 is usually a pretty )roductive time for anybody, and it is still early ugh for me to go and do whatever nonsense I It to do. I take about 15 units per semester. I work lours a week, so I ' m really busy. It ' s helped me to more disciplined on Friday nights. Preston : During freshman year, 6:30 to 9:30 was time when my friends would decide what ve ' e going to do, so by the time I was done with gospel choir, everyone decided what we were doing. George: What was your reac- tion when you first heard that you had a CD recording planned? Sparkman : To have this mo- ment saved with all these fine people I ' ve been singing with and be good enough to be on an al- bum is just exhilarating! I can ' t find the words to express it. It ' s just " Wow! We are going to get to hear ourselves ' " And I love this choir I love the people and I love the singers. It ' s just great. George : One member told me that for him, the choir is almost a professional experience. You come, contribute and go home- he hardly knows other members. Preston : I think there is a bal- ance. Because there are only five of us basses, we are pretty tight, but we don ' t go and kick it and do stuff afterwards. It ' s more while-we ' re-there-we ' re-there. A lot of people get to know each other through the tours we go on. I ' ve met a lot of sopranos, a lot of altos, a lot of tenors who I really hadn ' t known. We ' re on this bus for 24 hours at a time. You laugh, you have a good time. It ' s really cool. Sparkman : Anytime you have a social situation you ' ve got some people who are very exuberant and very outgoing who introduce themselves to other ' s, and you have other people who are shy. I ' m exuberant, but I don ' t always intro- duce myself to everybody. That is one of the things that attracted me to Preston— the first thing he did was introduce himself to me. It made me feel very welcome. Anne: Silvester keeps us very disciplined and very focused. Some people can be very intimidated, as I was my first semester, but you know it is for the better of the entire group and it works. We were discussing this on the way home from our last con- cert. If he didn ' t keep such a tight reign on us, then we wouldn ' t be able to perform at the level that we do now. After rehearsal when I first joined, I noticed that everyone just went home, and that was it, whereas this semester a lot of people are hanging out afterwards and talking. Michelle : I think that certain sections are closer than others. For instance, the alto section has a lot of people who have been there a couple of semesters. We don ' t change as much as other sections. I know very few people in the soprano section by name.

Focus 57 because they rotate so much and a lot of new people come. There are maybe only two people or three people in the choir who I hang with outside of school. Everybody came there with their different sets of friends. George: What responsibilities do the co-chairpeople have? Michelle : We put the program together, making sure everybody ' s bio is done correctly and editing it a million times; making sure that things get to Kinko ' s on time and everything flows effectively. Anne: Anything from printing the tickets, mailing labels— it ' s a lot of dirty work that has to be done. George : During the Gospel Celebration Concert in Antioch [where five other gospel choirs performed) several of the choirs com- bined for a performance of " Total Praise. " During the applause, some of the Cal sopra- nos spontaneously picked up with the " halle- lujah " refrain, just humming it. Sopranos in the other choirs followed. Then the instru- mentalists picked it up and everyone joined in again. Wis that as moving a moment for you as it was for those in the audience? Michelle : I think that happens a lot. You are walking off the stage, and it ' s still in your heart— you are still singing it. A lot of us had sat down and we were still singing the song. Anne: We were charged by the perfor- mance of the group right before us. The soprano standing behind me was already in tears by the time we were getting ready to sing. Sparkman : I love our " phat " sound. It ' s a really rich, resonating sound, and it is some- thing that Silvester inspires in us with the way he teaches, but one of the things that has really driven it home lor me is listening to his voice. He has got such a beautiful voice, a resonating, lull, powerful high voice. He can sing high and still sound really resonating. It just makes all the difference. Anne: He doesn ' t sing often, but when he does, we all just sit on the edge of our seats. Sparkman : Just listening to his singing voice brings that extra dimension that has made us a better choir. Craig: Silvester grew up in the church and was later involved in music on an aca- demic level as well, so I think he is able to tie to- gether both sides. He tells us every week that he doesn ' t want us to be neces- sarily a gospel choir but a choir that sings well, combining the essential elements. He doesn ' t take other choirs as a standard. He expects us to be as emotional as an emotional choir and as skillful as a skillful choir and then combine the two. nne: He tells us what not to do. He ' ll show us videos, and be like " That choir was yelling. You don ' t do that. " So we ' ll listen to something and identify what ' s wrong. Michelle : I ' ve really become a big critic of other choirs. I can hear exactly what Silvester is talking about. I ' m in my own choir in my church, and I ' m like, " That is not how you hold ihat note. You ' re screaming, you ' re not singing from your diaphragm " and I totally hear it now. I think that ' s important. George: I was wondering il any of you are planning to pursue music as a career? King: I am definitely interested in pursu- ing music professionally. I ' m not sure in what venue I ' ll do that yet. Again, that ' s one of my major inspirations for being in the choir. There ' s a real seriousness in the discipline that we have to un- dergo in being with the choir, and because of that, all aspects of my performance and my practice, even my lis- tening, have been en- riched. I know that my concentration has got- ten a lot better. To just be in a focused envi- ronment for three hours— it ' s been just good all around Michelle: I ' m not particularly interestei in pursuing music on a paid basis. I wi continue to sing songs to the Lord becaus that ' s what I find fulfilling. I would dehnitel never try to pursue ,i career in scciiLir musii However, if Kurt Franklin [famous gospi artist| walked up to me and was like " He; you want to be pan of my choir?

I want to find God no matter what lo, but as a career, I don ' t feel like— I don ' t low— getting paid to sing praises to God ems to be an awkward thing to me. I ' d be illing to do it for free. Sparkman . Well, I want to be a country usic singer, but I think that whether you ig secular or gospel music, what Jesus Christ id to say, " Love your neighbor as yourself " a beautiful message in any song. Craig: I plan on being involved in a wide range of music, but to spread gospel music to people ' ho haven ' t heard it or who maybe don ' t think it ' s lor them really excites me, and I think that ' s something I would like to participate in musically as well. I didn ' t grow up in California, I grew up in New Mexico, and there wasn ' t any gospel music whatso- ever, and when I was an undergraduate, I actually joined a church of God and ' i Christ in San Diego, so I was just " coming from a whole different cul- |; tural background. Choir was sort of a new experience. I ' ve had a lot of friends who were in the same posi- tion who have gotten an apprecia- tion out of it. Preston : I like music in general, so I ' m not going to put it away, but I ' m not going to pursue it profes- sionally. I plan to continue learning and playing — I ' m trying to learn how to play the harmonica. George : Final thoughts? Sparkman : I ' Ould just like to say a few more things about Silvester. One of the things about him I love so much is that he loves to teach and sing. He doesn ' t mmd teaching a couple of older folks like me, either I love his goals. He believes in a multicultural, one-world mentality. He believes in ex- tending gospel music to people who don ' t get a chance to hear it. And he ' s just a great person and a good friend. Michelle : That ' s what I would like to say about the choir, the f ict that it is multicultural. I ' ve been raised in a traditional Baptist church. We sing gospel music all the time, and everybody in my church is black, so it was really good for me to come to this school and see someone like my girl Anne here who sings with as much soul in her voice as I do. I was like, " Oh, that ' s good, " you know? And that just breaks down a whole lot of stereotypes. Anne; We were on our educational tour and we went to this high school in Reno. There was one girl who said " You guys seem to get along well, despite how different you all are. " She was looking at how much mela- tonin we have in the choir? She could see different colored fices and hair and whatnot. When I ' m in choir, and I ' m talking to Michelle, or I ' m talking to Craig or whomever, I ' m looking at what we have in common. We ' re all there to praise, we ' re all there to sing. Even if you ' re not Christian, we ' re all there to sing and be musical. It ' s the commonality we are focusing on. ■ Gospel as Doctrine Junior Rti. ' ;hfc ' n .Smith s fts fiis ticiiK ' x asheen: 1 tutor one of the singers— her name is Gina. During our tutoring session she tells me how hard Silvester Henderson is and how much they practice. It ' s no sur- prise to me they are that good— they put in a lot of work and he ' s a perfectionist. Do you go to the concerts because you have friends in the group? Rasheen: That, and I love gospel music Every morning I get up and play gospel music It just starts my day up and it ' s inspirational. S ometimes when I study, I keep it real low. If I didn ' t know anyone, I still would have gone. Do you feel the spirit listening to gospel music? Rasheen: Yeah. Can you describe the feeling? Rasheen: To make you want to stand on your feet and move with the crowd— wav- ing with the crowd from side to side and clapping your hands with the choir- it ' s just so good. And some- times I can really feel it to where it almost brings a tear to my eyes because I start to think about my Hfe and things that have happened to me. You know, how I have overcome a lot of things through prayer. You feel a combination of lots of things. Definitely love and thankfulness and just, you know, that He is there for you. Like that " King of Kings " song. It ' s just so good. I noticed some of the women in the audience putting their hands up. Why don t men express themselves the same? Rasheen: Men do! I ' ve seen men do it. I ' ve done it— I don ' t do it every song, but I don ' t know why women do it more than men. But yeah, when you see that, along with the clap- ping and everything, that ' s praising the Lord. Does your daily dose of gospel keep you sane? Rasheen: Definitely. That ' s why I put it on in the morning I guess I my life on being a soldier and part of that is my ftith in God and in the Lord. I try not to just call upon Him when I need things. Other people put on the radio, I just press play. I know what ' s coming on. It gives me a focus. It keeps me doing the right thing. ■ Rasheen Smith 59 t the second live recording of the Young Inspiration Gospel Choir (YIGC), the director ' s message in the evening ' s program read in part, " As a child, I always dreamed that African American gospel music could stand in esteem with other forms of musi- cal art. This evening w e can celebrate the joy we have experienced pioneering gos- pel music at Cal. This evening my dream continues to be fulfilled. " Conductor Silvester C. Henderson is a professor of African American Studies and niusic on cam- pus. He IS also a full-time professor of music and director of choral actnnties at Los Medanos Com- munity College m Pittsburg. California. At Palma Ceid Baptist Church m Hayward, he is the mu- sical pastor From igH to igg . he was a part- time professor of music at San Francisco State, where he also earned his bachelor ' s m classical piano and his masters. He founded Cat ' s gospel choir in igSj and it became an academic class in spring 1996. The choir peaked at 100 members in iggi and nuiintcim. a mailing list of 200,000. Henderson is married and has jour daughters. Have you always known that music was the direction you wanted to go in? As a child, I grew up studying classical piano most of my life, but I always had a great love for black gospel music. When I started, I used to tell my professors that I wanted to study gospel music in college, and people would tell me that I was ignorant, because they would say " Henderson, you know what, this will never happen. Gospel music in a college? Man, you crazy. " That just does not happen, especially at a world- acclaimed university like Berkeley. I said, " Well, if you ' re a classical musician, you can pick the college you want for training. And if you ' re a person interested in gospel music who wants to get better in order to serve your local church or what have you, there ' s no place to go! " And so it was kind of like I started this idea myself We ' re the only student organiza- tion basically in the history of the university to go from a student club to an academic class. And it was very painful, because in the first ten years, I used to get hate mail. This institution, I ' m going to be honest, was not always as supportive, and there have been many administrative complications. Do you think the opposition was more related to the fact that this is an ethnic choir or the fact that there were musical jealousies? I think it was a combin.iiion of hoih. First I y(_J J- ERVIEW I SILVESTER HENDER SON i ' re not considered just your average school choir. We are not just a group of students getting together on the weekend singing. In the gospel arena, we are knov n as one of the finest groups m the world. " But getting there sure wasn ' t easy. Noisemaker BY GEORGE STILABOWER of all, historically, gospel singing has been looked upon as being nothing but a form of emotionalism, primarily aimed at the African American community with low skills. And so people automatically come in with the perception that it is junk and so how did junk get all this acclaim? I was really rare because I was the edu- cated man trying to move it from the church to the secular world. And in the academic arena, it Nvas like in the their minds, I ' m a church man trying to bring church into the school. So I ' m kind of stuck, and I ' m saying no, no, no, that ' s not what I ' m trying to do. What I ' ve done is taken words from Dr Martin Luther King ' s " I Have A Dream " speech and tried to create an image where the people from the church environment would think of a prayer and the people who come from the academic environment would think of inspi- rational words. I ' m basically trying to build a home where there can be a sense of respect given for the contribution that gospel has made to Ameri- can music and to show that you can be a gospel musician with skills. I ' m also offering an avenue to the day when gospel can be looked upon for more serious and profes- sional studies. That ' s all I ' m interested in. I wasn ' t trying to take it away from anybody. I think that being part oi the svstem now, [after the choir became a class) there are two things. First of all, I have to work extremely hard to try to overcome negative frustration that I ' ve had over the years. I think it exists for mc because I am the individual who went through all the struggle, and I thmk I have work hard and remind myself that no " Silvester, you have an opportunity to i: crease your awareness as you want it. " So have to remind myself many times that son of the people you ' re dealing with are n aware of your past struggle. I think that second of all, the music d partment tries to make an effort where tht are also comfortable with me being part their department. I think that there had bee these unanswered and complicated perce] tions of me based on people not really knov ing me. The only thing everyone knew w, that there was this world-acclaimed chc with this old aggressive man. I ' m just beii honest— that was primarily what people kne No one could understand that these studen actually adored this person, and it was set like this tyrant running this acclaimed grot that no one had any control over (laughs). I think I need to soften up more, ar 1 think that the institution as a who I needs to soften up more I think that need to continue to feel supported and ' can honestly say that the last couple i years when I made the transition to becon ing a part-time professor in the department 1 African American studies, it was really goc for me It was good for tne emotionally bi cause it didn ' t feel like I was always fightin I felt like, " Hey, I finally have some rights, can open up a classroom. " But the difficulty has been that I have h.i to put so much energy into struggli ng to b 60 ipected So I ' m really burned out. In fact, be honest, I had really considered to quit. I ' ve been asked to apply for honorary ictorate degrees all over the country. I don ' t low if I would be the best person for a full- ne position in this capacity at Berkeley. I ink in every call, there has to be a person to ;ht. And I ' ve been that person and I tell sell sometime soon, I ' ll move on and let meone else carry it through. Because I will ver be forgotten [laugh] simply because the oir has made such a historical mark. It ' s not like I wouldn ' t love to be a full ofessor at Berkeley, but I don ' t know if the mpus is willing to go that far that soon, lere has been a lot of anger and resistance, ■e walked down music halls and people m ' t even speak. The biggest thing that I think still baffles ople is the enormous reputation of this semble. That has been for the full profes- rs the big deal. No one understands it. I ' m Derson who is a hands-on practical person, y interest is to research for practice, not 5t to research for knowing. I ' m not a full- ne Berkeley professor type. le choir has quite a distinct, balanced sound. 3W do you achieve that quality?

Are you concerned about the declining ethnic and minority admissions numbers? I really am. I ' m really concerned, and actually disappointed at the outcome of that proposition [Prop 2og (1997)] and Berkeley ' s support of it. What was surprising was Berkeley ' s insistence on getting rid of affirma- tive action [the 1996 Regent ' s vote banning affirmative action prior to the propositions passing] considering that they were trying to build up diversity. To me, that ' s going back- wards. And I am concerned because it will really hurt me. I have not telt it now, because I am thinking that with the students I have now I ' ll probably have a good year or two, but when those students graduate... the ad- missions were really down last year. However, the university cannot totally be responsible for all of the ills of society over the years. But I do think that it is the respon- sibility of the university as an educational institution to make a good claim on that— the idea of trying consistently. I think this is something that is going to be a resounding problem for the campus for years. I think when the population of the student clientele starts becoming less diverse than it already is, then they are going to have a big problem on their hands. They are going to have lawsuits, politicians lobbying for sup- port, student groups, walkouts, riots. People don ' t break down stereotypes eas- ily. It takes people a lifetime to develop per- ceptions on individuals, cultures, and races, and sometimes it takes people that long just Henderson directing at YlCC ' s Spring Concert. Re- spected for his musicality and singing voice, Henderson eschews personal performance for teach- ing and establishing gospel in the music curriculum. to get rid of them. The fact that the choir is a class at Berke- ley is not as important as the awareness that the music has some value and that not only has the choir been good in teaching excellent music, but it has been a great base in teaching cultural awareness and coming together. All these years, we ' re the only group on campus that has successfully and consistently had that much diversity confined in one area. We are one of the few organizations that is not all Asian, or all white, or all black. I have a deep emotional connection with these same students and parents. Evidence of that is that I don ' t know too many organiza- tions where the parents would come from New York of Japan for an evening concert. I think their child is so inspired that they ' re inspiring their parents. The kids are so in- spired that the parents don ' t just come by themselves. They bring their grandparents, their uncles, their aunts. Considering the richness of your background and the contribution you re capable of making to the entire gospel singing community, why youth? Why not professionally? ' ell, because my passion really is with young people, and I love teaching. And you know what? I don ' t consider myself to be a great performer. I really don ' t. I really consider myself to be a great teacher of performers. I really do. Prob- ably all the things I get my students to do, I am afraid to do myself I think that is where my greatest talent lies — I ' m a very practical man and I ' m a hell of a motivator, musically, and I think that I can pull out of people musically what most people can ' t. I tell myself if I can be a pioneer and an inspiration to perhaps open avenues and other doors for young people so they can actually encourage a great awareness of music of their own culture, and have options of where they can study— if I can be the person to at least start the ball moving, then my vision and life couldn ' t be happier. And that ' s the truth. The fact that I am able to do this is the largest fulfillment in my entire life, because that has been my dream since a kid to make the music not conditioned to the black com- munity, but to open it up and say " This is great music! " ■ Focus 61 J o ; I , THE WOMAN WARRIOR MAXINE HONG KINGSTON IM I O I O AND STORY BY ANNA XIAO DONG SUN n her creative writing seminar, sitting at the end of the long wooden table, facing the jutting windows of the neo-classical room in Wheeler Hall, Maxine Hong Kingston resembles more a performance artist than an author, her eyes shining in the ear ly April light, her long grey hair falling freely over her slim shoulders, and her hands moving with the soft grace of a dancer. A group of 17 people wait in keen anticipation, a mixture of undergraduate and graduate students. The focus of the day ' s discussion is Professor Kingston ' s ov n book, Chind Mt ' n. She begins the class with a gentle smile. Professor Kingston, born on October 27, 1940, has long been an inspiring presence in the English department. The recipient of the 1997 National Humanities Medal and v inner of many prestigious literary awards includ- ing the 1976 National Book Critics Circle for her Wcimiin Wiirnor and the 1981 American Book Award for Chiiiti Mt ' n, she is well rec- ognized in her craft. A native of Stockton, Calif, Kingston first came to Berkeley in 19= 8 to earn her bachelor ' s degree in English, later returning in 196 " to receive her teaching credentials. From 1967 to 1984, she lived in Hawaii with her husband Earll Kingston, and after the critical success of her books, particularly Wcimtin V arrxor, she returned to Berkeley as a professor and has been teaching ever since. Kingston harbors a unique fondness for Berkeley which she reiers to with the words " my home, my land. " She recalls, " One day I was walking with a student across campus. I was going to meet my husband. He saw me coming, but I was so engrossed talking to the student that I walked right past him. Later I asked my hu.sband how I appeared to him. He said I looked periectly at home And I thought, ' Of course, because this is my home. ' As I walk across this campus, I feel that it belongs to me. This is my Cal, this is my land. And I feel very responsible for all kinds of things that happen on this cam- pus. The sense of responsibility she feels is clearly present in her interaction with stu- dents. There are always students waiting pa- tiently outside of her office during her office hours. One of her seminar students, Matthew Coleman, notes, " I took another class with her last semester. It was such a great experi- ence. And she remembered everyone ' s name- it ' s a class with a hundred students! She enjoys the process of teaching, she feels a part of the Berkeley family. She is one of us. " The strong feeling of community is ex- actly v hat she hopes to convey through her teaching. " I feel that v hat I am doing in my classrooms is making an antidote to the im- personal, huge university. When I came here as a student from Stockton, I went through a lot of cultural shocks— people were so cold By the time I graduated I felt I did not know any professor well enough to ask for a letter of recommendation. I feel I ■want to be an antidote to that. " lersonalism marks the overlying theme of her seminar class which she has constructed as a forum for discussing her own work, often lecturing on her own writing process. " I want to show students a living writer, show them that my stories come from my personal life, that here is what I meant to say, and here is what is said. In my course " Read- ing for Writers, " I try to show the students the processes of creativity that produce a work of art. So I show my students my writing, and I tell them where it comes from, what inspires it. My papers and drafts arc collected in the Bancroft Library. They can see how a draft evolves, and I can tell them how I did it. " Kingston ' s particular focus is telling the story behind the story— the life and experi ence behind the narrative. In discu.ssing Cliiiui Mcii with Hlm- class, she suggests that students pay particular attention to one scene in which a Chinese man, who stands for her own cci an in ordt ' r 10 he fully human, to he fully joyful, and through art we can stop war. ' 62 ither, pays to dance with a girl in a New York ance hall. The scene is tender and sad and to ear her read it in her distinctive voice adds et another layer to the writing, since the class news that it is about her own family and her wn memory. After she finishes reading, she uts down the hook and begins to tell the lass about the scene ' s evolution. " After I finished Cfiinii Men, I went to New ork to see my editor at Random House. My usband and I stayed with some actor friends 1 Manhattan— my husband is also an actor I ■ent to their office on West ssth Street and iw that the editor had put ' flags ' all over the lanuscript. At the time they didn ' t have Post- stickers, and only editors had those flags. He sld me what should be improved, and then e said, ' There is one more thing. There is this verall problem that I don ' t know can be xed. There is this major flo ' w problem. ' It was a really horrible moment. My heart started to contract. So I asked, " What is it? ' ' Well, my dear, ' he started. When he was going to tell me really bad news, he would call me ' my dear. ' He said, ' My dear, I am afraid that you don ' t understand men. ' I thought, ' God, how horrible! ' The whole goal of this book was to v rite about men and to really understand them. He said, ' You don ' t understand men because they are not lonely enough. They need to be really lonely. That sense of loneli- ness is essentia! to this book. ' [hen I got back, the actors had gotten a party prepared for me— they saw it as a victory party. I was screaming inside. I was just told, ' You don ' t understand men. ' I didn ' t know what to do. Whenever some- thing bad happens, for whatever reason, I go straight to writing. In the middle of this party, I went to the typewriter There I wrote the whole scene of the Chinese man dancing with a blonde girl in New York which you can find on page 68 of China Men. It was like a muse came by and gave the scene to me. It was all started by the editor ' s harsh criticism that I didn ' t understand men. But I think I am the type of person who can take that and turn it into creative energy. " Her students are captivated by the story. After class, another student, Matthew, com- ments, " You see this is a wonderful class because Professor Kingston is so at ease with her place as a writer. In her teaching, she is able to balance the critical discussions of artistic works with discussions of artistic process. Today, you could hear a pen drop- ping when she was discussing her own work. " In her spare time, Kingston teaches a writing workshop for veterans. Kingston calls it her charitable work. " It ' s my latest project, " she notes. " It ' s my theory that we need art in order to be fully human, to be fully joyful, and through art we can stop war If people can ex press themselves artistically, then they don ' t have to express themselves martially If the veterans can narrate their war stories, their life stories, then they can be cured of the traumas caused by war. Many veterans have already published their stories. One of them is on a book tour right now. " Kingston admits close personal motiva- tion as a reason for her commitment to the veterans. " I v as a student here during the Free Speech Movement and the Vietnam War demonstrations. But actually it goes back even before that. My mother was a refugee during the Japanese invasion of China, and I was always horrified by the war stories. I always felt I had a responsibility to do some- thing about it. " Professor Thomas Farber, a well-known writer teaching fiction workshops in the En- glish department says, " Her long commit- ment to the veterans is extraordinary. Not just the duration, but also that she began so long ago, when very fev ' people were mak- ing such commitment. " There is a Hawaiian word for her commitment, KoKua. meaning care, a kind of love. " As much an heiress of Chinese story- telling tradition as of the 1960 ' s Berkeley student movements, Kingston, with the wide- spread success of Wiinidn Warrior, is the most widely taught living author in American universities and colleges, according to former Poet Laureate and Berkeley professor Robert Haas, making her much of a cultural icon. Kingston is currently working on a new novel and plans to continue teaching. ■ 63 n ■ egun as a co-op that sold student L P memberships in 1884, the ASUC stu- dent-run store in 1998 is still a store, Uhut no longer student-run. A third party, Follett Bookstores, took over management on July 1, 1998, conclud- ing a long battle between students and administrators. Once the old ASUC debts to the campus are retired, profit from the store will start filling ASUC coffers. Overall, it ' s a good arrangement, and excep- tionally well crafted, considering two stu- dents made it happen. Knowing that the store had little time as an insolvent business headed for bankruptcy, seniors Sharon Yuan and Lee Fink, ASUC president and executive vice president re- spectively, first met with Chancellor Robert Berdahl in September. (The Associated Stu- dents of the University of California, or ASUC, denotes the student body in general, but it commonly refers to student government in particular and in this story.) The meetings multiplied with other campus oificials until an agreement was ratified on March 19. It was a daunting task, largely due to the rancorous history between the campus and ASUC. In the past few years, the ASUC store was bringing in $16 million in revenue annu- ally. Profit, lots of it, should have come easily, what with a captive market of thousands of students in perpetual demand of tens of thou- sands of goods, namely textbooks. Instead, losses in the millions piled up. Audit reports starting in 1996 painted a bleak picture of insolvency. Campus officials saw no reason to have a student-run store whose existence was not directly benefitting the campus com- munity; thus, their desire to assume manage- ment temporarily until a third-party vendor could be brought in. Student officials scoffed at the idea and dug in their heels for their " right " to operate the store. Hostile propa- ganda was launched by both sides in a bitter fight that lasted three years. Besides the battle, other factors affected the health of the store. Some would say local competition siphoned off sales. Others would point to a lack of recovery after a 1986 iirc burned inventory And some would argue the switch from quarters to semesters shortly after the fire, which reduced the lucrative " rush " periods from three to two per year. presented an insurmount- able obstacle. In any event, the store never really had a chance, perhaps, as a student-run entity once it grew beyond its humble beginnings. As the only members of the store ' s board of di- rectors, the ASUC senate, 20 mostly undergraduate elected students, sat atop a corporation with 8=; full- time adult professional em- ployees and 250 student em- ployees. Inexperience and a revolving-door member- ship presented a lack of co- hesive leadership and insti- tutional memory. As a re- sult, hired professional staff were expected to take care of key business functions. Senators, lacking neces- sary experience, either did not ask for or were rarely given important financial re- ports. Agreements signed with the campus in 1994, known as the Statement of Understanding and Memo- randum of Understanding, permitted campus officials to examine financial reports, but again, close scrutiny did not prevail. ASUC executive direc- I tor Frank Brandes, who took office in 1994, was ficed with numerous problems in the already suffering store. His problems were further compounded after a $23,000 raise suggested by himself in May 199=, and approved by the senate took effect. The raise brought Brandes ' salary to $108,000 and set Brandes in a nega- tive light with then-Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien. In June, 199s. the story was a page-one article in the Piii v L ti On the other hand, Brandes ' explanation that his raise was partly justified due to the additional expertise he had to bring to the job was true. The store ' s problems had persisted through previous executive directors, includ- ing Byron Kamp (1989-9 ) and Peggy Perkins (acting 199 -94). Noting rather ob -ioiis prob lems, Brandes hired a security manager .ind installed video equipment to stanch the flow ol unpaid goods out the door Students who worked in the store before the crackdown remember when a sweatshirt may have been ■ BY GEORGE STILABOWER Nobody had seen profit in years as the $l6-miI ion student store tumbled into a political playpen, furiously fought over by campus and student officials.

Ohntn Pnll mply with campus bidding procedures, and e campus stopped them. The campus made it clear they had no tention of interfering with student govern- :nt. On the contrary, they pointed out that lancial drain on the store, such as vendor yment demands, may legally hitch onto ident activity fees (about $650,000), which 3uld have impacted the only revenue avail- le to the ASUC student government. Chan- llor Tien made it clear he thought the store ould benefit the entire campus community, lich it couldn ' t do broke. Mah and Louie connected the dots to a Dbable bankruptcy in their fiscal 1996-97 dit (raising a " substantial doubt " about the ire continuing as a going concern). After erely diminished credit lines and employee ' -offs, it seemed the idea of a student-run ire had run its course. A few students, six newly elected sena- tors from the Cal-SERVE party, started asking ques- tions in September, 1997. " What ' s wrong with our store? Why doesn ' t it make money? What ' s our role? " Other senators were also paying attention. Mean- while, two student gov- ernment executive officers. Student Action members Sharon Yuan and Lee Fink, had identified a need to resolve the conflict with the campus in order to return the store to profit- ability. Financial reports were called for, and bi- partisan interest in a solu- tion emerged. Lawsuits were pend- ing in court, which the ASUC would have surely lost. Yuan quickly opened negotiations with the Chancellor in early fall. By March 1998, an agreement with the cam- pus to out-source the store and share profit was ap- proved, restoring the pur- pose of the store from the beginning: to benefit the campus community. Basi- cally, the store would be leased and overseen by a board of campus and stu- dent representatives while a campus auxiliary unit would negotiate those leases and handle all commercial activities The campus, tired of being named co- defendant in numerous ASUC employee law- suits, forbade the student government from hiring any employees. All former full-time ASUC employees were hired either by the campus or Follett. Brandes had resigned his position prior to the offer. After over $2 million in debt to the cam- pus is retired sometime in early 2000, the ASUC senate anticipates seeing a monthly income projected at sioo,ooo. Funds from their once student-run store will permit stu- dent leaders greater service opportunities for the campus community.

Finding the Deal ' I ' m not a visionary... ' s a freshman on campus in fall 1994, Lee was nominated and approved for a va- cancy in the senate in November 1994. .Later in the spring, he worked in the I Student Advocate office. During the year, he focused on the store. Frank C. Brandes, Jr., retired from Sears and formerly Pleasanton ' s mayor, had just signed on the previous year as the executive director of the ASUC. Al- ready financially wobbly, the store would not respond to attempts to strengthen it. (Italics indicate historical or clarifying material.) Lee: I bought my books at the ASUC. But some people were saying, " Wait till the audit comes. We know it ' s bad. " And someone was complaining the direc- tory outside the elevators on the fourth floor said " ASUC Executive and Administrative Offices. " I was still young, and I didn ' t quite understand what they were talking about. Fourth floor offices were for administrators, in- cluding Brandes. Student government leaders ivere the executive office holders, and their offices were on the second floor Lee ran for senate m spring igg and lost, jejf Cohen was elected ASLiC president for igg -qd. 1995-96: Serving Notice Assisttint I ' lct ' chancellor Barbara Davis shoiued up at a November 15 senate meeting with notice that the ' delegation to run the store was in jeopardy. Few took her report seriously. Lee: The Business Management Board (BMB) [the old policy making board for the store, comprised mostly of students whose deci- sions could be overturned by the senate] wasn ' t meeting. The University folks thought that ' s where the students really could exercise ap- propriate control over administrative staff. But that wasn ' t happening. I think eventually the professional staff was starting to go be- yond their jobs, because the BMB wasn ' t there to give any directions. There were some people who were okay with that because they had their influence; they had the executive direc- tor and they could tell him what they thought needed to be done. I think the senate ' s gen- eral incompetence was really a hindrance. The audit numbers for the store came out in February and the initial story in the news- paper was " ASUC ' s audit shows they ' re los- ing huge amounts of money. " So I thought, 65 " Yeah, that ' s what I heard from all those people a year and a half before. So it makes sense. " And then I start reading the Univer- sity folks saying, " Oh, my god. " Clearly there was a problem and the ASUC couldn ' t go on losing. And it deteriorated. I think the animosity built up with the execu- tive director ' s salary increase, the senate bud- get deficit, the BMB not meeting, and a plethora of other problems. The University u ' as getting the impression it wasn ' t working out and I think that went to the basic prob- lem with the Statement of Understanding (SOU). What I came to realize later was there was no contract because there was no meet- ing of the minds [in the SOU]. So it startled both sides that neither side was doing what they were supposed to be doing. And so, with all these problems hav- ing built up, someone said in a BMB meeting, I guess it was Stanley Korwin [from Univer- sity Financial Services], that the audit was the kiss of death for the ASUC. And that riled up plenty of people in the ASUC.

Student solution. ' ; derised u ' lth and approved by Brandes were rejected by the campus due to a " lack of business sense. " Brandes ' frustration with the campus was keen. Lee: The outsourcing proposal became known at the last senate meeting before spring break, I had talked to [BMB chair and graduate student] Noah Doyle a couple times about what the audit meant and how we were losing money. I was running for EVP, so I figured I needed to lalk intelligently about these things. Were any students aware the University would insist on your abiding campus bidding procedures for outsourcing? We became aware very shortly thereafter. And frankly, I think the Universny •savi ' the problems and said, " Look, they ' re losing lots of money— ridiculous amounts. We ' re going to solve the differences. " The university was frustrated about a lot of things. The senate didn ' t get committees approved until the third week and that is something pretty pro forma. They had this huge budget de- bacle and they couldn ' t figure out any- thing with it and they ended up cut- ting Eshleman Library and student gov- ernment. Groups didn ' t get cut which I guess was good, but they dragged their feet on it. Somebody commented it was like making sausage. Someone didn ' t remember how they had voted. The senators came in the next week and had a pot-luck before the senate meeting. Most of what people brought was either Samuel Adams, Guiness, or Budweiser — whatever their beer of choice. [Student Activities and Services director] Karen Kenney came to the meeting and was shocked because through the meeting they were still drinking and carousing about. And she was saying, " You need to get a permit, and I think some of you are underage. You can ' t get a permit for that! " And they were saying, " This is the senate, v e don ' t care, we ' re autonomous and we ' re drunk ' " It was incredible stuff! That night they passed about 18 bills whereas before all semester they had passed maybe three. Of course there were comments, and their replies in , the newspaper said, " We felt it was good because we got along a lot better and got a lot more done. " So they didn ' t understand the severity and I think that is why the Thursday before spring break on the front page of the DailvCal above the fold was the editorial " ASUC Needs New Leaders; Another Chance, " and it said, " the ASUC senate is incompetent. " Who were the most concerned University administrators? [Business and Financial Services executive director) Tom Vani was the hardliner for the numbers and I think he had the plan. He was the one who— no disrespect— but I think he wanted the ASUC dealt with. I think Chan- cellor Tien was upset because he did not have control of what was going on. He prob- ably said to his staff, " Go change Brandes ' salary, " and they came back and said, " We can ' t. " He said, " I ' m telling you to, I ' m the Chancellor, " and they said, " No we really can ' t. " He didn ' t like that at all. I think there were a number of people who were saying. Bg scs ssr s " We need to do what is best for the student; If this is not going to drive everyone bank rupt, it ' s going to be awful. " So anyway, the outsourcing plan cam out, and I was in favor of it. And then Chan cellor Tien came to a senate meeting durin elections in April in Pauley Ballroom. He wa saying the University objection was [the lad of] competitive bidding, and the ASUC said " We don ' t fall under University policies. " Am the Chancellor ' s basic position was, " I won approve anything that dciesn ' t " It [the lirs outsourcing plan] was negotiated with exclu sive rights. The employees knew jobs were on the line anc about 25 had a meeting around that time 11 Cohen ' s office. Scott Bonds and EVP Felici. Sze were there. I asked Scott what possibly i the advantage of not having competitivi bidding. He said something like, " See, if yoi tell one person they are going to have exclusive rights, they just really go after that contrac because you say... " It didn ' t make sense. 66 ASUC professional staff, upper left, Darlene Robertson (financial services mgr.), John Warren (security mgr.), Frank Brandes (exec, dir.), Marilyn Stager (financial services dir.) at the last formal ASUC employee gathering in the Union, an employee appreciation.

Of course it threw everything in an uproar. nd these negotiations were very poorly done — :lling across the table in BMB and senate eetings for the most part, and sometimes Jeff -ohen] or Noah [Doyle] or Scott [Bonds] ould meet with someone one on one. Eventually it came down that the Univer- :y would co-sign or extend a loan for S2 illion. BMB would meet over the summer, ere would be a competitive bid, and the BMB would select the bookstore ven- dor. The campus was even agreeing to no voting members on the BMB at that time, but they had a place on the ex- ecutive director review committee. So it was agreed in early May. The University still thought it was going to work one way, and the ASUC was still intent on doing it a different way. Which is that the ASUC was going to issue its RFP [request for pro- posal, for new store management] how- ever it saw fit. That summer I was in Washing- ton, D.C., and the loan fiasco hap- pened. The University said, " Well, you owe us $800,000 now, and we ' ll give you SI. 2 million, " and Frank signed it. Then we come back and say, " We need another s8oo,ooo. We said we needed $2 million. " I have to imagine the University ' s exasperation here, " You signed this loan saying $1.2 million is good. Now you ' re coming back for another s8oo,oo. " And I could see their fnastration when they figured the ASUC tried to pull a fast one, Tht ' loan was due in Augu, it. Branda clawicd m the Daily Cal he thought tht ' tt ' rms were flexible. On June 24, 1 96, Vice Chancellor Horace Mitchell issued a notice oj revocation of the business delegation to the ASUC, effectively taking over the store. I The notice included a plan for an auxiliary " to operate tht ' stort ' during financial recov- er with a possible handover later to the ASUC. Tfi . ' Unu ' t-rsitv cited SOU provisions re- garding financial failure and chancellor authority. Tfit ASLJC did not comply. On July 2 , Mitchell issued a notice to quit. icrwmatmg thf ASUC ' s right to operate commer- cial activities. Tlie ASUC refused. The campus did not forci. ' a physical t-riition, but later engaged m other tactical munL-uivrs, such as assessing royalties on Cal t-mWi.-miUic goods in the store (which had btYH waived m the past), revoking book I ' oucfit ' rs for scholarship athletes, insisting on cash up front for all business conducted with thf ASUC. revok- ing .sporting Li ' tnis sales venues, and severing Eshleman basement parking agreements with ASUC ciJministriitors. In tht ' meantime, iht- ASUC approved tht- only bid that came m through their " illt ' gcil " RFP Tht- Uniivrsitv st-nt out a letter to the bidders explain- ing tht ' RFP process was not approved and there- fore void. , oni.-thfl .-ss, the ASUC approved the only bid that came in— Btirnt ' s .Nobh-. Lee: It was almost a theater of the absurd to appro ' e the bid. I think it is most tandem to the senate approving the repeal of Prop. 209 in the State of California. Well, that ' s just terrific, thank you very much-next! jon Bass, our attorney in the matter, wrote a letter, I guess, to [legal affairs assistant vice chancellor] Mike Smith saying, " I ' ve been retained by the ASUC and there ' s no way the ASUC is going to surrender its legal rights to the possession of the Student Union without a court order to the contrary. " They said, " Fine, we ' ll go get a court order. " There were threats the ASUC was going to sue the Uni- versity too. The University went out and filed the unlawful detainer But at that point there was no more negotiating. It was just " Okay, they ' re suing, we ' re running, we ' re not paying back their money, we ' ve got a credit line. " Esa Yu was defeated m tht ' spring in her bid for President but had won a senate seat. Grant Harris, who had u ' orlctd in tht Stutlt-nt Adi ' ocatt ' office and had btvn an RA, was elected President.

Chancellor Tien tendered his r«igna- tion effective ]une ?o, igg- 1996-97: On Life Support n I rant and I shook hands agreeing that ' the store would be the main issue. I always frankly saw my approach as U different than Grant ' s— or at least his I initially. The University wasn ' t the I problem; we were partly the p roblem. J Jon Bass was talking to Lloyd Lee over at general council ' s office [in Oakland at the Office of the President (UCOP)] and they felt they were getting close. Jon came into a sen- ate meeting in late September and said. " This ought to be resolved by winter break. " I thought, " That ' s terrific. " The Universitv had lost a clear direction on what to do. They had this committee of 16 which was unable to give any direction be- cause [of Tien ' s resignation]. So things stalled. We had BMB meetings that were pro forma. The executive director was supposed to re- port our sales were up, but they were dowm. The BMB wasn ' t doing anything because a lot of things had been administratively taken over at the top. The students ' understanding of the business was very limited. Meanwhile, Focus 6 7 we had not paid off the S2 milHon loan. It came due August 20, 1996, and we ' re now in March of 1997 and we have no intention of paying it off— we have no money to pay it. So the University sues us again for breach of contract in April Chancellor Tien must have seen it as, " Okay this is the way to bring them down The unlawful detainer didn ' t work, this will. They ' ll have no money and we ' ll solve this. " But UCOP thought, " This unlawful detainer lawsuit can be expedited in 20 to 30 days, but this one takes two, three, five years— and it ' s not going to happen through the courts. " They ' re dragging their feet. And of course Chancellor Berdahl is com- ing on and the ASUC tack had by this time started to shift to, " Let ' s settle it. " Grant mod- erated, Sharon started running for President, and that A ' as much more her philosophy: " Yes, they ' ve got concerns. BMB needs to be changed because it doesn ' t work. It ' s got the wrong people. We don ' t elect the President and 20 senators running on the night safety shuttle and have them run the student store. Let ' s bring in fliculty and staff who know something about it to actually vote on it. " Wasn ' t Sharon a more zealous voice for autonomy, a Grant Harris comrade-in-arms? Obviously. She was the EVP and he was President and they worked together very closely. But her autonomy stance was par- tially political because it was important to fight for. It came from people who focused on the business aspects— Scott and Frank— and that ' s where Grant ' s knowledge came from. It was better politics than it was policy. But the realistic thinking had changed by December 1996 to a concept that we ' re not going to win this lawsuit and be okay. The end result is going to have to be a deal. Grant was still a hardliner on the structure, Sharon less so, and me most interested in finding the deal. That was my abiding philosophy— you know, " what works. " When the elections started in spring, solv- ing the store situation and reforming the BMB vere Sharon ' s two top issues. So when we went to the senate with this, Sharon was able to say, " This is what 1 ran on, this is what students elected me to do. Sharon and I got elected in March. I talked to Frank in April and he asked if we had tackled the budget. He was like, " What about SUPERB " and I was like, -Well, what about SUPERB? " [a student group ihat books bands, movies, and other entertainment; their ad- viser was Peggy Perkins, the number-two I person in administration]. It h.ui lost some serious money. And he said, " Well yiui know you can ' t just keep doing that, " and I said, " You should have said something to me about that before budget. " The budget had already passed. I spent many weeks in the fall trying to figure out what had happened to SUPERB-it had been dis- solved and it didn ' t dissolve itself It had been dissolved by management. That caused a confrontation in Eshleman on the fourth floor Now we ' re sort of in the transitional period — we know there is a new Chan- cellor and Nve knov who it is, but we don ' t know what he thinks. I had been planning to go to the White House for an internship during the summer. Shortly after the election I decided that I really couldn ' t, given that we didn ' t know what would happen. Looking back it was good that I stayed. 1997-98: Peace Accords ' I think there ' s been so The Political Life ee Fink read Look It Up Book of Presidents in third grade, an he has run for public office since. In high school, he wa involved in Junior State of America, a mock studer government. Lee remembers: " We had this mock cor -gress convention every year and I thought there wer ways to do it better, so I wrote a tw o-page memo to th recently elected governor about ways to fix it, and he saic " Do you want to run the conference? " I did and it turned 01 really well. I think there has been some pattern to that— if yo write something up, something might happen. " Originally from Tustin, Calif, Lee will go to NYU La School in the fall, " hanging out in Greenwich Village. " Afte law school, he sees a career in public service. " But the nt result I hope would be to run for office. Going into politics i something I have always wanted, " he says. He continues, " Part of having been fortunate, which think I have been, very fortunate, and going to pretty gooi schools, mostly at the taxpayer ' s expense [laugh], there ' s ai obligation, I think, of everybody who does well, to continu to contribute to what has brought them that. " L got an e-mail from Sharon when I was in Southern California say- ing we finally got a meet- ing with Berdahl for Au- gust 1. Our initial plan was to say we had a new opportunity and we ' re willing to talk. Chancellor Berdahl was very much taking things in. The store was the last thing we figured we would talk about. We said, " Well it looks like we might be breaking even and even be making a little money this year, " and he said, " Good! You can pay back that loan. " But he said, " You know I think we can solve this in an ami cable way. " At one point he said, " It ' s not necessarily in the best interest of the Univer- sity to take control of the store. " So we left thinking that we had started something going down the right path. I don ' t consider myself a real visionary. I ' m .1 pr.ictitioncr So we embarked on trying to move forward and we started ha ing some glitches along the way. The spring orientation issue of the iilv Cal— You refer to the lengthy interview with Brandes? Yes. Certain things st.irted 10 fill out My Lee also shared a possibly prophetic anecdote: " Did ever tell you of the story when I met Willie Brown?, " h began. " I was in 6th grade and my Dad was running for Stat Assembly— and we were late to a luncheon, and we wer sitting with a number of other people, with a youngisi looking woman and man. My Dad was talking to the womai who later pulled out her business card. And it says Delain Eastin, member, California State Assembly, and I was talkin to the youngish looking man, and said, " Wow, did you knov she is an assembly woman? " and he was like, " Yeah, I knev that. " And he shows me his card, and it says Johan Klehs realization was that Frank was not an aca demic. I saw him as one of the people wh( grew up in a generation when the world ha the misfortune of changing on them and no really being able to adjust to it. I realized tha Chancellor Berdahl, who is very much at academic, and grew up in the same world- but adjusted with it and was probably fai ahead of the adjustment curve— and under stands more the bottom line It wa: clear that it wasn ' t going to A ' ork. We needec to figure out something, and Frank was no ' going to woik in .mv sense as a spokesman As much as we knew it, we were sure of ii after that meeting. Didn ' t Sharon tell Frank in early September ht was relieved of any contact with the campus? Well, first we ne -er saw it .is his duty and f guess he did. The last person that an administrative person on this campus wantec 68 L pattern to that— if you write something up, something might happen. ' lember, California State Assembly. He ' s now on the Board f Equalizations — they ' ve both moved up. Anyway, Willie Brown shortly before had made com- lents to the press because the Republicans in the Assembly ' ere trying to find any number of ways to oust him from the peak ership. And he ' d said at that time, " My replacement as peaker of the State Assembly is now in junior high school. " .nd so Eastin and Klehs cajoled me into going up to Willie rovvn and say, " Speaker Brown? My name is Lee Fink, I ' m 1 6th grade, and I ' m going to be the next speaker of the State .ssembly. " They laughed. ) talk to was him. But we did tell him. Don ' t deal with the University. Even if you link you ' re doing it sort of on your own usiness sense, check first. " a you asked him to look at his job differently? Yes, and it became problematic. For one leeting, Jon Bass went up to the fourth floor, ' here he was used tci going for meetings in shleman Hall. Frank wasn ' t there, so he lought, " It must be on the second floor VSUC student government offices], " so he ' ent do ' n and we were there. Frank came I at that point and talked to us for a while id then Sharon politely asked him to leave, d he said, " Oh okay. " I ' m sure that made im hideously angry, but he left. What we were trying to do v as to get )gether a solution on paper that said, " This 3uld be the way it works. " Sharon had been ) the University of Washington and thought that was a very good model. Their bookstore is separate. We had about two pages detailing a very com- plex structure. During the course of the year Sharon and I had gotten into a tradition of seeing lawyers. I was just trying to make a list of all the lawyers we saw. There are eight names on that list. Yeah and that ' s not counting their second chairs and people like that. Sharon ' s next scheduled meeting with the Chancel- lor was Sept. 8. The final version was to have a board and we would outsource; it was generally based on a new idea that Sharon had. Sharon asked in the letter to have a correspondence in 13 days. But it wasn ' t, " Do this or else. " We made a point of saying, " We ' re real flexible here, but we want to know how you feel. " So that was Septem- ber 8, and 13 days would be September 23. We were all sitting around Eshle-man Hall waiting to see what I happens, and nothing did. So I ' m in [Eshleman Hall student offices] early on September 24 and a gentleman comes by with an envelope with a red urgent tag on it and I recognize him — he works over in (UC Police] Chief Vicki Harrison ' s office. I call Sharon and say, " We got something over here. " There were three principles they needed to see. One, that the ASUC retains maximum feasible operating discretion for student ac- tivities and programs. Two, that it is relieved of the burden of offering commercial ser- vices, and three, some clarity about the Chancellor ' s authority in the ownership of the buildings In the SOU was the point that somehow the ASUC had not gotten in the past— that the Chancellor had this ultimate authority, and it vas clear he did because theoretically he was stopping us from doing what we wanted. We said okay and we sort of quoted back that part from the SOU. So Sharon scheduled a meeting with the Chan- cellor for sometime shortly thereafter— prob- ably the last week in September. We weren ' t about to blow the process open. So it was then I sort of learned my line, which was: " We ' re cautiously optimistic. Our goal is to resolve our conflict and focus on where we agree rather than where we dis- agree. " We knew there were people who wanted to see this proposal— employees, Frank, the Ddilv Ciil, senators. And we were playing it under the cover from everybody We met with the Chancellor, his chief of staff John Cummins, Vice Chancellor Mitchell, Vicki Harrison, and Sharon and myself in the Chancellor ' s office. The Chancellor was for the decision of outsourcing the store. So he said, " Let ' s see something in three weeks. " So we set up a series of meetings. Then Vicki said, " I ' ll have Stephanie Siri from internal audit and Alan Rolling from undergraduate affairs be there. " So we started a series of meetings for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and then Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon for these six people for the next three weeks. We were trying to hit this three-week dead- line by October 17. So we start the first meeting at the Fac- ulty Club in the Director ' s Room and Horace was nice enough to buy us brealdast. We started with, " What do we want and what does the University want. " We said we would both bring back written ideas for the next time. We came back on Wednesday and the University had theirs. The University took the Art Museum trustees ' model and had substituted in " bookstore, " and we were worlds apart. The discussion came up, " You ' re talking about creating a new organization on cam- pus, " and they were saying, " We already have too many and we don ' t want another " So we knew we had to remodel our plan, and things started flushing out: " Okay, we ' re going to outsource, so we ' ll have a board, " and the University ' s trustee ' s model was notably blank in some areas, while ours was notably dis- tinct on that. The composition of the board, if not ex- actly its duties and functions, was decided that day in October The University thought since we had six students we should also have six administrators, but we said, " No, how about five? " We came up with, " What if we have students serving staggered two-year terms — tv o graduate and two undergraduate, and we ' ll have two fctculty and three admin- istrators. " So the membership got settled that day and it is what it is now. We came in past our deadline on October FocLs 69 22 with d final rough draft. We thought the process would be that we would do some concepts and the attorneys would come in and make sure it works and clarify a few things. So we were thinking December 4, which was the date for the mandatory settle- ment conference in the two lawsuits, as the day we ' d be done so we could go to the judge and say, " Here we go. " You mentioned before how we were talk- ing about " are we going to be taken? " And there was a certain point during this process where we just had to accept that these people weren ' t out to get us— because if they were they would because they could. But at the same time we had to protect ourselves since they don ' t know what we ' re doing since they don ' t understand what we ' re about. Anyway, this concept of an auxiliary had come up because that was the initial plan by the University. We were okay with at least seeing if this would work. We met at the end of October with Vice Chancellor Mitchell- he thought it was terrific and said he would give it the go ahead. He told us to call our attorneys and they would call theirs. The attorneys have the ability to point out gaping holes in everything. It ' s probably for the better There were plenty of unclari- ties — and there v as still this big note on ev- erything saying the ASUC owes blank amount of dollars to UC. That blank became very problematic. Both the fact that it was blank and the attempt to fill it in were done very late in the game. We did not deal with it— which was okay because these other things were much more complex issues That December 4th deadline was peering down at us— and we realized it wasn ' t going to work. Sharon and I would spend two to three hours every other day in meetings. We were also the writers. Writing is extremely powerful. The University was busy so they didn ' t want to do any of the writing. It turns out that working for the University is not as plush of a job as the fable goes. Stephanie Siri would spend two Saturdays at work without a second thought and without much of a complaint, either They were more than happy to let us write and we were more than will- ing to do it because we knew that was the point. Throughout the first draft t)f this stuff we had done that. Not much had developed over winter break We talked to Vicki Harrison and ex- pressed to her our time line: we needed to do it before elections started to get in the way. It was early February and we were start- ing to move at this poim The University tallied up the debt and I tbi ' ik they came up with about $2 million. March 4 was the deadline for constitu- tional amendments to get on the ballot by March 11 [amendments v ere required to re- flect changes in the store ' s operation). We were shooting for March 4 to be our main deadline We had three eight-hour sessions and we got to Wednesday night before the 4th, and that ' s the day we brought garbage bags and taped up the win- dows in the sen- ate chambers [for a senate meeting) We put out the same thing we showed the em- ployees on the overhead projector and that took about three hours There was a favor- able response for the most part. The slide show at the em- ployees ' meeting was difficult. All along we knew that for student government, it would be a difficult day The employees reacted positively. People said to me on occasion, " Thanks for doing it. " And I said, " Hopefully it turns out well. " It is disconcerting when you have people whose futures really are in question. I still feel a certain level of discomfort. I couldn ' t get a lot of things they wanted. Throughout this year it strikes me as being a little odd because someone who is 22 years old should not be making these decisions for people. We spent the next week revising. It was March 2 when we made the agreement, two days before we were going to introduce this bill into the senate There was a special meet- ing the night before which ended at 2 am. The next morning ' s Piiilv Cal had an article which said an agreement had been tentatively reached, there were meetings with employ- ees at q a.m., and the senate was in an all- night marathon session And I actually read this to the senate— I was reading this article about our meeting while we were meeting! The senate ' s reaction was remarkable that night, because the visitors, Christina Pak, Scott Kamena, Scott Bonds, and others, were nearly begging for someone to ask questions during their speeches against the agreement, but everyone sat quietly. It looked like your minds were made up. Somebody said that everybody who wa against this agreement all seemed to have gotten us there in the first place. But the nexi two weeks became the political drama. Somebody told us there was an employee meeting on Monday, and we were like, " What! Jason Lee, a third-year student, working in School Supplies. Despite a controversial remodel under executive director Byron Kamp in the early 90 ' s, the store continued to slide financially. The store was outsourced in June, 1998, to Follett College Scores. What ' s going on? " So we went with [Cal- SERVE senator] Preston Taylor to the meet- ing in the Union, and promptly sort of goi kicked out. What was your reaction when you came intc the room? The meeting was called by Brandes to explain his views to employees. We expected a real cold response. We were just going to sit in the back and ex- pected that would chill it. He said. " This is for employees only. " [All employees, includ- ing Brandes, were eiiiployed by the ASUC. which was run by Sharon and Lee and the senate. Yuan retorted, " They ' re our employ- ees " ) You are trying to figure out exactly what to do. It was a response that was just so unfathomable— that sort oi flouting. We left there determined to make some change Go back to a year ago in May. Senate says, " Let ' s give Frank another five years even though there are still two years remaining on his cur- rent contract— without a performance review. " Employee morale was crushed. You, Sharon, and the senate voted unanimously yes. Why? It was ,1 ion where I he senate got stuck between a rock .uid .1 h.ud place Frank had come up with an idea that he wanted an extension, and he took it to Grant Harris and 70 :ott Bonds, and they were for it They ■ought it to the senate and pushed it, [ASUC torney] Mark Himmelstein amended the jntract. There was some legitimacy; we ' d id tough times, we were still going. But the )ck we came up against was, either way, lere was going to be some problem, and if e don ' t do this, there is going to be a vote of 3 confidence and the staff will fall apart, us, the new Chancellor was coming in, and I new senators— it was a concern we would :come a splintered group as we approached le next critical stage as we tried to bring lings over. It was probably a bad decision. The other thing to note is that the facts le senate had to deal with. Information did Dt come down. There were lots of problems we had this ar with the executive director. We got kicked It of the employee meeting, funds were set ide [s3s,ooo was taken out of student gov- nment funds to help pay for legal fees in nith v. Regents and $12,000 was taken out to Tset accruals of debt on the computer ac- junting system) without the senate voting, hese were things that in the past were kept nongst three or four people. The Presidents ere just supportive of doing those sort of ;ings. But the senate never knew the money as set aside. It was happening every year, ' idently. You get the idea— a top person, one per- in was moving money, and the top people ho caught it said that seems fine and it ould happen. And so, in that year, and in :ars past, the senate wouldn ' t know that lis had happened March 1 998: Peace and Prosperity— A Midnight Initiative n Wednesday, March 11, we passed the constitutional amendment [to eliminate the BMB and the executive director ' s position]. The week before, Scott Bonds started this ASUC Store e-mail list and I didn ' t realize the depth of it. It had people on going back to the late 1980s. In one e-mail : accused Sharon and me of selling out the ore for a letter of recommendation. I had ready gotten accepted to the University of [ichigan [law school] and I had certainly Dt gotten a letter of recommendation from le Chancellor. And I pointed out to people lat lots of people got his recommendation, en people who had opposed him. Anyway, Scott decided to have an open irum for Sunday about the agreement, and I lought, ' Tine. " By the time he came to the ednesday night meeting, what people were seeing was that he didn ' t know what he was talking about. The next weekend after the vote on amendments, but belore the final decision, we had a special meeting scheduled from noon one day to 8 o ' clock the next day. It started at 2 p.m., and we went on until ten that night, and we had an hour off for dinner. We came back the next day too. So we went a long time— and I have to com- mend—I mean, a lot of people came and participated and that was impressive for the senate. It turned out to be a fabulous group. I cannot thank this year ' s senate enough. There was a lot of intelligence, hut even more commitment. They came to more special meetings and were willing to stay and deal with things. Our initial nose count put us at 11 votes. We needed to pick up three votes [approval of the agreement, under the ASUC Constitu- tion, required a " super majority " of 14 votes in the 20-member senate]. It was Monday night. I spent a lot of time talking to people in the senate chambers and in the halls. We were getting to the point where most people were close, and somebody wanted to make an amendment. And I said, " You can ' t amend an agreement. You ' ve got to go for it. " We realized we were done. It got to be about midnight and they kept extending the vote to ask and answer questions. The nose count at 1 o ' clock was about 13. Amir Shafaie [a Student Action senator] was the perfect closer; if you heard him, he was really im- pressive. Anny Song was next on the list. And so, the moment of truth. We ' re going through, you know, yes, no, and we ' re count- ing. Finally we get to the end of the list, and it was 14. A few people missed roll call, hut we knew it passed, and there was a standing ovation— a show of joy. I thought it was quite appropriate. When big, good legislation passes Congress, you always see that kind of thing, and this was at about i::;o a.m. The final vote was 16-3. So we get up early the next morning- there was a BMB meeting [laugh]— which had plenty of irony because we basically just voted to disband it the night before. Then we just spread the word. Shortly after the I ' Otc ' to ratify the agreenwm, the senate hired a labor laivyet Brandes voluntarily severed his contract after one day of ju-gotkition. and a portion of tht ' remaining six years of his contriict was bought out bv the ASUC. Later in fune. all full time employees were given severance packaii es (one iveek ' s salary per year of service and paid sick daysl loialins, approximately Si.i million. On fuly 1, iidministnituv employe es. niilucling those m student affairs. bc ' Ctinu ' campus employees with six months ' guaranteed employment. Store personnel became employees of Follett Book- stores with a one-year guarantee oj employment. Epilogue our father ' s a lawyer. What ' s his area? Bankruptcy [laugh]. He dealt with bankruptcy and eviction, so he fought an unlawful detainer At one point during the course of all this — I talked to him about this throughout— and he thought an unlawful detainer lasting a year was ridiculous! Did your Dad ' s being a lawyer influence your ability to negotiate? I think I ' ve gotten a better sense of what the logistics or legalities are. When I took office I set about reading all the pleadings and paper- work. I had a little bit better of an under- standing. Probably not as good as some people think [laugh]. Are you aware of how deeply the impact of your decisions affect employees, students, adminis- trators, and others on the campus? There is a growing awareness, I think. There was an immediate impact when we talked to the employees — that it is more good than bad. There is a bit of personal confi- dence that we did something that will turn out well. During the t vo weeks until we introduced the agreement in the senate, we were up til midnight negotiating it. I wasn ' t getting a lot of sleep— I had a midterm in PoliSci 105 with Tom Bates, who used to be a State Assemblyman in this area. After class, I spent some time talking with him— and I said I wasn ' t getting a lot of sleep. Am I too invested in this thing? Did this happen to you? And he said, " You are probably a little bit more invested than you ought to be and that ' s okay, " and he sort of talked me through some things about how to deal with it. There were all these ideas. Then we saw the theories— the nicer store, the paying off the debt, the more scholarships possibly for students. What we were talking about wasn ' t empty. More was actually going to be pos- sible, and actually was going to happen soon. And so, that idea that we were actually doing something— that ' s why people go into government — that ' s why I wanted to go— so that you can have made some contribution, and you can make something a little better. In three years, I thought certain things I had done had helped out some groups, and I had made something a little better. I really thought I was making it a lot better.

The Association of Research Libraries placed UC Berkeley ' s library system fifth overall this year, behind those at Harvard, UCLA, Yale and the University of Toronto, In 1989, UC Berkeley was ranked second; last year it held the fourth position among other elite re- search institutions in North America. While the rank- ing was not a huge surprise for library officials, it was another signal that the library ' s quality is in peril, officials said. According to Michael Rancer, director of financial planning and administration, roughly a third of the library ' s $26 million budget goes towards while the remainder funds library operations. Over the last eight years, though, the materials operations budget has been cut by 30 percent, Rancer said. This has resulted in branches on campus having to make difficult budget choices affecting materials on shelves and serxaces offered to students. The overall ranking by the ARL, released in March, is a composite of six rankings: number of volumes in collection; number of volumes added to collection; num- ber of subscriptions to scholarly journals; total expendi- tures; number of professional employees and the num- ber of non-professional employees. Berkeley has remained fourth in the number of volumes in its collection since last year ' s ranking. How- ever, the gap between fourth and fifth is closing fast, Rancer said. The campus currently has 8,628,028 vol- umes in its collection but the University of Toronto is only about 140,000 volumes behind. UC Berkeley fell from sixth to eighth in the number of new volumes obtained, with 167,378 volumes added last year. The University maintained its ranking of fourth in the number of subscriptions to various scholarly jour- nals and periodicals. While the collections budget has not actually been cut, it has not kept up Aath the rate of inflation and the skyrocketing cost of scholarly jour- nals over the last decade. According to Chancellor Robert Berdahl there has been a 148 percent increase in the cost of scholarly journals over the last decade, which is three times the STEADY DECLINES IN LIBRARY FUNDING VLONG WITH RISING SCHOLARLY JOURNAL COSTS CAUSE A DROP IN RANK AND »ROMPT RENEWED FUNDRAISING EFFORTS rate of inflation and two times the rate of increase in national health care costs. " (The rising costs) are very difficult for all universi- ties to address, " Berdahl said. " Universities are both the producers and consumers of these materials. The pub- lishers have cashed in substantially. " The campus sub- scribes to a total of 79,000 journals out of a market of roughly 200,000, said University Librarian Peter Lyman. According to Rancer, UC Berkeley ' s base collections budget has increased less that 1 percent since 1991. In comparison, the University of Michigan ' s collections budget rose close to 60 percent while Duke University ' s allocations surged by nearly 65 percent. The average increase in the collections budgets for public universities has been roughly 3 percent since 1991 and 43 percent for private institutions. Still, UC Berkeley budgets have grown more than any other campus in the UC system. UCLA ' s collections budget increased by less than ten percent since 1991. In this year ' s ranking, UC Berkeley fell from fifth to seventh in the amount of total library expenditures since last year. The library spent $33,933,8u last year— an amount less than half of that spent by Harvard ' s first- ranked library and about $3 million less than UCLA ' s fourth-ranked library expenditures. The campus library today makes up 3.5 percent of the university ' s annual appropriations, compared to a 1982 figure of about s percent. According to Lyman, the solution to the library ' s budgetary prob- lems lies in fundraising and increased university financial support. The u n i V e r s i t y - w i d e fundraising campaign in- cludes $2S million in en- do A Tlents for library col- lections. According to Lyman, they will pay out five percent annually. Lyman also said that alumni are interested in donating money for Moffitt Library, Former Chancellor Chang-Lin Tien gave the library a temporary allocation of $5 million over three years for collections and Lyman said he is confident that Chancellor Berdahl will be willing to help as well. " I think Chancellor Berdahl will have to make a long-term commitment (to the library), " Lyman said. Although he has not set an amount, Berdahl has ex- pressed willingness to commit financial support. " The problems of the library are very complicated due to the need for resources and the need to invest more heavily, " Berdahl said. " We have to keep pace and the fact of the matter is we haven ' t. We have to invest more in the library and we will.

" is regularly taped, the packed audience in Zellerbach Hall could not be contained. At one point, announcer Johnny Gil- bert, the familiar voice for the show, had to wave his arms frantically at people in the audience to stop them from cheering. " College Jeopardy! " , which was filmed on campus during the weekend of March 21 and 22, was aired during a two week period beginning May 4. The 15 chosen contestants — including Catherine Landers of UC Berkeley Mari Webel of Stanford, and Bryan Stofierahn of Santa Clara Uni- versity—battled for the $25,000 prize and a Volvo sedan during the two-day tour- nament. The game show ' s set featured a large statue of the " Thinker " equipped with a Sony Walkman, a replica of Sather Gate, and the clock portion of the Campanile. Players warmed up before the actual taping, simulating a short game and get- ting used to speaking up and phrasing their answers in the form of a question " Jeop.irdy! " host Alex Trebek did not emerge until the actual taping occurred and walked tlirough the replica of Sather Gate amid che ■ . In between li ' c commercial breaks. Came host Alex Trebek he fielded questions from the audience as players were given drinks and powdered up. " It ' s kind of tight, " Trebek said about his impression of Berkeley. " And there ' s no parking. I think they had fake cars parked around campus. " At one point during the taping, the game was stopped to check a player ' s answer. Calls were made back and forth between Los Angeles and Berkeley until the final consensus came in: The player pronounced an answer incorrectly and a portion of his score was docked. " It is not less difficult whatsoever, " said head writer Gary Johnson about the difference between " College Jeopardy! " and regular " Jeopardy! " questions. " We work to make (the answers) more hip. " Because this was the first time " Col- lege Jeopardy! " was filmed on a college campus, the team of writers also made a special effort to include material about the Bay Area and university life. Hong Kong cinema. Cliff ' s Notes, and MTV were all lair game. By noon on Saturday, the line lor the show had snaked around lower Sproul and stretched past Bancroft Clothing. A group of people, all attired in Cal paraphernalia, said they waited in line lor more than 40 minutes. ' . " Ik-t ' vI P.IS JU.lI 7 « " I thought I was going to faint, but I had a good time.

" We ' ll wait until we ' re stopped at the door, " said Sara Goto, who graduated from UC Berkeley last year " We want to root for the home team since it ' s taped here. " Goto ' s friend, Jeffrey Thompson added that they were in line because they had tickets to see the taping. But Thompson said he had other reasons for wanting to watch " Jeopardy! " . Now a graduate student studying chemistry, Thompson was a contestant on the TV game show as a UC Berkeley freshman in 1993. " I ' ll get to see it from an audience perspective, " Thompson said. " I won ' t have nerves or butterflies. " One person who did have nerves A ' as Catherine Landers, the contestant repre- senting UC Berkeley. Landers, a 22-year- old senior majoring in economics, is the fourth of five sisters who have attended or are attending the university. Three of them were in the front row during the taping to cheer her on. " I thought I was going to faint, " Landers said. " But I had a good time.

" If I win, I promised my friends I ' d take them to Greece for our Grad trip, " she said. Landers, after having won in the first round of play, went on to compete in the semifinals. Though she was eliminated from the competition. Landers went home with cash winnings of $3,000. ■ Copyright 1998, The Daily Californian, Reprinted with permission. Focus 7 5 B Y C, I. O R ( , K STILABOWER n a warm day in u v, manai mg editor Una Lcc and George Stilabower met Olcg Kosyak for an interview at the Rec Center. After walkint doivn the hiU into a shady quad, we sat doivn. and in a quiet, deep voice, Oleg spoke thoughtfully about moving from Kiev. George: How did you end up in Berkeley? Oleg: It started, oh, three years ago, summer ' g= . Josh Landau came visiting the Ukraine, trained with Ukraine national team. He just wanted to go to the Ukraine and see how it is there, how the team gets so strong and so dedicated— like Russia and the Ukraine are strongest gymnast teams. He spent a month there and that ' s where I met him. It was me and Evgenii [Zherebchevskiy], he ' s the other Ukrainian gym- nast on the team. We are the only two who spoke a little bit of English. The rest of the people didn ' t speak English and Josh didn ' t speak Russian, so he was kind of alone there. He didn ' t have anybody to talk to, to experience, to go out and party, and so we got him together and we just .spent a lot of time and tell stories. He would tell about Berkeley. It is an interesting city. And we would tell him about the Ukraine and about Kiev and just about life there. So In kindergarten we got close together, and one day he just asked me, " So what are you going to do after gymnastics? What is your life ' s goal, your big goal? " I was like " I don ' t kno ' , I never thought about it. " He goes, " Are you going to coach? " " I don ' t know, I don ' t know if I really want to coach. " And then I just asked my- self, seriously, what I want to do after I stop doing gymnastics. And he goes, " Have you ever thought about getting an education and do- ing something other than sports? " And I said not really. Then he told me about Berkeley and how they have gymnastics team. I v ' as still doing gymnastics and getting education at the same time. So it just sounds like very cool idea, like getting your degree in Berkeley. I have no idea v 4iat Berkeley was. Just going to the U.S., being there for four years, it ' s just cool. So he tape recorded my gym- nastics, and he brought the tape to [coach] Barry Weiner. Barry saw the tape and we started the pro- cess, a year before Atlanta. George: Did you know what you wanted to major in? Oleg: At that time I thought I would major in economics. Business is very popular, it is such a big major. Everyone tries to do busi- ness. But yes, I changed my mind three times. I was studying economics, and I was like no, that ' s not really what I want to do. It was just too hard and I ha ' e no real interest. Then, I was thinking maybe I should do business administration— trying to get into Haas and something more like banking. So I took some of those classes and I was like, no, that ' s not going to work out either. So, my third idea was American studies, because it is more broad, you can create your o n major, and take classes that you want, kind of. So while I was going for American studies I took 76 ,HE SAID, ' Ok, I ' ll do it merican Studies lo, which was Hnguistic lilosophy, and that was the class that I just 1 in love with, seriously. I loved the class, e professor was really cool— Julian Boyd. I dly liked the professor, I always come to s office hours and talk to him, and he is St really cool guy. And so, from him, I got know adviser of cognitive science depart- ent. And so that is what I am going to ajor in, in cognitive science. ;orge: What is cognitive science? leg: It is kind oi in the school of psychol- ;y, hut it covers a lot of topics. It is like mputer science— you have to take a lot of mputer science classes, psychology, phi- sophy, and it ' s something that I look for- ird to. Finally, I got to the point where mething interests me. ia: What are you going to do after school? e you going to stay here? leg: Two years is a long time. I mean, I ould never think— it is just— I dont know, ' hen people ask me what you are going to ), three years ago, I had no idea I would d up in Berkeley, Now I learn Persian. I am ry interested in Middle East, their culture, St their life or whatever. So I may end up in iddle East somewhere. ;orge: Doing what? leg: Teaching, maybe education. Being a icher, maybe English, maybe Russian. ia: So how did you start gymnastics? leg: I was four. I was in the kindergarten hen I went to the school. We have the ndergarten, three years of kindergarten, and hink it was my first kindergarten year. The lach just came to kindergarten and she gave ; some exercises, like chin-ups, push-ups, id just kind of flipped over. Picked about n guys out of thirty, and I didn ' t know how read or write, so she just get out this paper id told " give this to your parents. " So I me home, I have no clue what gymnastics as, but I was kind of " Ok, I ' ll do it. " hat ' s how I started. My parents brought me to that school, and then I started training. First it was three hours a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, one hour, then it got more and more and more, and by the fifth grade I was doing two classes a day. George: How long was each practice? Oleg: About three hours. George: Was this a school dedicated for gymnastics? Oleg: Yes, in fifth grade I entered the school. It was the school where I Nvork out and do school at the same time. They plan it so you have time for school and for practice. George: Most Americans think of these as totally " all expenses paid " schools. Oleg: That ' s right. You don ' t have to pay anything. Back then, they pay medical ex- penses, education, any kind of activities. It ' s totally free. You don ' t pay anything. George: Even as a kid, did you feel pressured to return something to the system? Oleg: I don ' t know if you think about the return, but the expectations were really, re- ally high. You have to work hard. George: Too hard? Oleg: Yes, I would say too hard. It ' s funny to me, coach there. I remember my summer camp, you have to get up 7:30 in the morning, go to the stadium, run ten laps, which is about 3 or 4 miles every morning, then we would have drink, then we would come back, rest for about two hours, go have first prac- tice, three hours, then after practice we would B RO Z L M 1. D . I. 1 SUMMER OLYMPICS, ATLANT. go to the beach, run, have fun, relax, and then come back to drink and then have a four hour break, and then three more hours in the evening. So you have three practice a day. And it is not just that you run around and have fun — your coach tells you what to do, and you are not al- lowed to respond back. The only thing you can say is yes. George: And how many students were involved in a summer camp? Oleg: I ' d say about 40. It was a national camp for the Ukraine. George: And what was the schedule youjust did with this summer camp in UC Berkeley ' s Rec Center? Oleg: It was from nine in the morning until 4 p.m., and the main idea for kids was to come and have fun, and if they don ' t have fun, they v on ' t do it. George: So American [laugh]. So what do you think? You ' ve lived most of your life in either the USSR, or always as a citizen of the Ukraine, and when you see... Oleg: It depends on what your goal is. Be- cause if you want to become an Olympian, I think the stronger, the harder regiment would be the proper idea. People have different goals. Like after Atlanta, I couldn ' t handle the in- tensity anymore. It was just too much. Sev- enteen years in gymnastics? It is just too much. Last five years, up to seven hours a day of gymnastics, and I just didn ' t think it was a healthy environment over there. You don ' t have anything else, you don ' t have any social life, you don ' t have any social activities, all you have is intense gymnastics, George: Were you still in school? Oleg: Yeah, kind of I was in school, but I wasn ' t doing too much, of course. You are so tired that you take the book and you fall asleep reading, George: Was that true of all elite gymnasts then? Rhcll Pjs. Focus 77 I N Below right— About to mount the parallel bars. Below far right— Cal gymnast and team captain Josh Landau (on left) trained in the Ukraine in December 1995. He became friends with Oleg and later assisted with his move to Berkeley. Oleg: It ' s really rare when I thought there would be a great student and a great athlete. And plus, coaches didn ' t really care about your score. As long as you are doing well in the gym, they ' ll go to your school and they ' ll take care of your grades and they ' ll talk to your professor. And so you just dedicate your complete self to gymnastics. No distractions. George: Have you experienced a serious injury? Oleg: No, I haven ' t. I ' ve been lucky. But I ' ve seen some serious injuries. That ' s one of the reasons why I wanted to quit because when you see people breaking backs, or tear an Achilles, or bones just cut the skin and blood just comes through it with the pulse— I just don ' t think I want to do it anymore. Now gymnastics gets more and more risky. Now it ' s not about class, as it used to be. It used to be beauty of movement. Now it is so hard that you can ' t make it. Now it is all about the tricks, it ' s not about the moves, and it ' s not about making it beautiful and nice, and it ' s just how hard you can make it. Can you make five flips, then you win. George: When you said you were tired of the stress and everything else after Atlanta, were gymnastics still enjoyable to you? Oleg: No. It was about the final goal, the Atlanta. Make an Olympic team and partici- pate and he there. But then you start to think harder, so what ' s going to happen after that? And thinking about my government and about my country, and how they just lie over there [laugh], I think I need something more than that. No seriously, it ' s just unfair, it is unfair to athletes, and it ' s unfair to students, to be at such a high level and just the lack of respect, and the lack of . George: Really? I thought elite athletes were given almost anything they wanted. Oleg: But that ' s not true, Wc had three Olym- pic champions in the Ukr.iine team, and we took third place [Oleg ' s is a tc.ini bronze medal). We got back, and people barely, barely— few people— people who were in olved in gymnastics— they knew, but t ihcr people just. ..Gymnastics is not a popular sport. Soc- cer, tennis, chess, more popular. Those are the sports where the finance is involved. George: Are you planning to go to the Sydney summer Olympic Games? Oleg: Yes, I was. I was planning, hut that is another very interesting story. So after At- lanta, the only thing I am doing is college gymnastics. After Atlanta, I came to Berkeley, I studied my freshman year, finished my fresh- man year, and came back and visit my family for the summer I don ' t want to go back to international level but after my first year, I went back to the Ukraine and I train with national team, and I caught up in two months. I spent two months in the Ukraine and I was leading the competition. So at that time, I was still training with national team. I just want to go there and see how it is. But they had no control, no pov er over me because if I didn ' t want to do something, I would just say I didn ' t want to do it, and they wouldn ' t say anything. They hated it. The coaches hated the fact that I was free to go, I could just turn around any time and just leave. And so when there was national cham- pionships, they just put me down and don ' t give me any score or any chance. So I totally gave up the idea of coming back and training with them and just " I ' m not going to do it anymore. " George: Did the Ukrainian team know you were going to live in Berkeley before you left? Oleg: No. That ' s really funny. Before, no one ever left the national team and kind of say, goodbye, I ' m going to college here. And me and Evgenii, we were both doing the same. I told it to my coach, " I got an opportunity to study in the U.S. " We were really, really close. " Is it going to be ok if I leave after Atlanta? If I am going to be finished with gymnastics? " He goes, " Yeah, if you really have the opportunity, you should go for it " I let my coach know so there wouldn ' t be offense. He told me to go for it, but at the last minute, he didn ' t realize how true I was. In the first place, he thought I wouldn ' t make it. That ' s what he told me after I finished my freshman year and came back, " I don ' t know how you did it. " Because people were sure that it wasn ' t going to work out. This govern- ment, or we wouldn ' t find money, or we wouldn ' t have understanding. So people were talking about " Evgenii and Oleg, they are trying to make things work out, they are just a bunch oi idiots. They have this crazy idea, " George: So what did you parents think? Were they also thinking it wouldn ' t work out? Oleg: No. They had gotten it George: How has it been, living so far awa) from your family? Oleg: It ' s hard. First year it was just hell. First semester, I wanted to go home every day After my first week of school, I call home and " Mom, I ' m coming back. " George: You and Josh were already friends then? Oleg: Yes, we were friends, hut still, he helped me out so much. I owe that guy so much, it ' s just unbelievable how much he likes me. Basically he took my hand and he walked me around the campus and he showed me what classes and how I use Telebears and how I find classes, how I sign up, everything. How- to turn on computer. I was just so out of it. Then my school started, and I was like no, there is no way I can handle it. Because I didn ' t understand proiessor, and then I had to write papers, I didn ' t know how to write I could somehow respond, but I had no idea how to write. And I had to catch up while. was very, very hard. Sometimes Barry would let me miss practice. I ' m like, " Barry, I ' m not coming today, I ' m exhausted, " Stayed up all night, writing the paper, got an F [laughsj trying to do it again But, it ' s going well now. I had a really good semester I got i,.6 last semester, and I was very happy. George: Do you have a favorite event? Oleg: Yeah. Rings, iloor, parallel li.iis, vault, and high Kir Everythitig except pommel I dtm ' t think I should be in that It ' s a very hard one. Floor and rings are the two I enjoy the most. George: What in your mind, are some of the 78 gest contrasts, or really subtle ones, between e Ukraine and here? leg: It ' s very, very different, here and there, would say that there, people work way ore harder to get things, that people get re working, hut kind of., here, you have so uch access to everything. It is a country of iportunity. You don ' t have that much access er there. Everything, pretty much, is under ntrol and it ' s hard to — it ' s like, to get to iov ' Berkeley, I had to live here, and to get enough " and have another revolution? Oleg: It ' s getting better, they have more inter- national contact. But still, the power is all corrupt. The top government still has so much power and control over the people. George: Has it always been that powerful, or just since the U.S.S.R. broke up? Oleg: Since U.S.S.R. broke up, it made it easier, but . George: Does the Ukraine experience the same know there, you have to really live there. It hard to explain, but people here — there I ' t that much contrast between poor and :h people. There is, but not as much as it is ere in the Ukraine. The government is so :h and the rest of the people is so poor, and ere is not middle. The middle class almost lesn ' t exist. That ' s the difference. Either you : the cars you don ' t see here, very expen- se cars, huge houses, or you see people on e streets just dying because they don ' t have od. Here on Telegraph, it is their choice, ey choose to do that because that is their sntality or whatever it is. There, because ey can ' t find a job. They are willing to, but ey can ' t. :orge: So there is a lot of poverty. leg: Yes, a lot. :orge: How about your own family? leg: I would say my family is like middle — s are Ok. My parents are not rich, but they : not poor either iorge: Is the Ukrainian government seen as... leg: Evil? [Laugh] Jorge: Will the people say, " We ' re sick of this, problems that the U.S. experiences here with drugs, guns, crimes etc.? Oleg: Yes, the same thing. Crime is very high. George: So you weren ' t shocked here? Oleg: I was shocked a little bit with the drugs. It is pretty bad there, it ' s not like that over here. People get shot in dow ntown in midday there, but not America here. George: Do you see yourself returning to the Ukraine permanently? Oleg: Yes. I really love my city. I love Kiev — one of the most pretty cities I have ever seen. I love my city and plus, my parents are over there. That is a big part, too. George: Do you have brothers and sisters? Oleg: I have younger sister, she is 18. I miss her a lot, and I miss my family a lot. I would want to live close to my family. George: When do you see yourself moving back? Oleg: After I graduate, maybe I work here, get some experience, then go back and get something over there. Because it is hard to start from beginning there, and if you already have a job, it is easier George: Do you see yourself in Kiev in a role to improve the city or the country? Oleg: No. I don ' t like those ideas. I don ' t like politics, I don ' t like thinking about getting the world better [laugh]. It is just too much of responsibility. George: Are you going to apply for U.S. citizenship? Oleg: I am definitely going to apply for a green card. It would make my life easier I don ' t have to worry about working visa, and just my traveling would be easier— they would stop asking me questions " What are you do- ing there? Why do you want to study over there? Why do you not want to study over here? " It is just all these questions. It is not going to make it worse for me to have double citizenship, and I am allowed to have Ukrai- nian citizenship. Lina: What do you like about living here? Oleg: I like the diversity. It took me a long, long time to get used to that. George: Because most of the people in your country are Caucasian? Oleg: Yes. They are all the same. They dress and act the same, they talk the same, they talk in one language. And when you go there, you ' re like " Oh my god! " You just look at everybody, and they just think the same. Lina: So what do you not like here? Oleg: I don ' t like — again, on one side, it is cool, the diversity, because you get to learn, you get to see so many people, so many different things. It ' s just amazing. At the same time, it is too much of individual. People are not as involved with each other The friend- ship here are not that close. Friends, the word friend, doesn ' t mean here what it means over there. I miss my friends at home. You miss the involvement— you have no expecta- tions of your friends, they just do it, because somehow, you have this connection. Here, it is always something for something. And I still cannot get used to it. Jacca and Alexander Nissen, we always hang out together I have a lot of friends from the team, but it is just very, very different. George: Why do you think that is? Oleg: I don ' t know. In my country, they help out each other just because they know that life is hard there. Here, you can do every- thing yourself, and you don ' t need help from others, and you don ' t expect it, and it ' s kind of— but over there, everyone tries to help out each other as much as they can, without expecting something. They don ' t have those kinds of expectations. ■ Focus 79 RALLY COMMITTEE Covering an area of 50 rows by 50 rows, the Alumni, left, dem- onstrate to the student section how card stunts are supposed to ■IP ' m Freshmen Nick Parra-Vasquez, Chris Corcoran, junior Shine Lin, freshmen Natalie Le Blanc, Jennie Estrada, (2nd row) sophomore Wesjackson, and freshman Scott Tsui, below, show their Cal Spirit s P before the 100th Big Game.

Yet this I group of enthusiastic students do not play instru- I ments or lead cheers. Chairperson Mark Davis (se- I nior) explains, ' The Rally Committee is unique among I other student groups. People recognize us at a wide variety of athletic events where we go to support our teams. What many people don ' t realize is that we are responsible for putting on the spirit related functions that students attend. " The UC Rally Committee is the official keeper of spirit and traditions at the University of California. Be- sides the numerous rallies which the Committee orga- nizes, the group also fires the California Victory Cannon after touchdowns, puts up and guards the California banner at a variety of sporting events, and coordinates the cards for half time card stunts. This year the Committee saw a huge increase in membership. " At the beginning of the year, there were 182 members attending the meetings. By the end of the year, we still had about 70 active members. In previous years we would hope for half that, " said secretary Gina Reggiardo (junior). Davis believes this increase will benefit the com- mittee because, in future years, there will be more mem- bers with past experience, A larger Rally Committee brought back some of the activities that formerly had been planned by a different group, the Californians, whose dwindling membership since 1995 caused these activities to disappear over the years. Rally Comm took over the publicity for all Big Game Week activities, th e Big Game Carnival, Blue Gold Discount Days, and House Decorating. " The timing was also good because it enabled us to restart several other traditions for the 100th Big Game, " said Davis. One of the ma- jor traditions that the Rally Commit- tee revived this year was the Big Game Thomas Kilgore, left, runs on the California Carpet, which is main- tained by Rally Comm. " Waving the Cal flag was alot of fun, especially since it was the first time Rally Comm did it. I really liked getting the crowd excited. " Blaine Landberg, freshman BY WESLEY JACKSON AND TIFFANY V ASQUEZ Focus 81 Cable Car Rally On the Wednesday before the Big Game, yell leaders, cheerleaders, members of Rally Committee and Cal Band rode two San Francisco cable cars from Union Square to the Hyde Street turnaround, cheering and singing Cal songs. The afternoon ended with a small rally at Ghirardelli Square. According to director of rallies, sopho- more Christopher Lilla, the hiring of the cable cars cost about $2000, an amount too expensive for past budgets since 1987. Fortunately, because of the 100th anniversary of the Big Game, treasurer Susanne Kikuta (sophomore) says that Rally Comm received extra funding this year from alumni, the Cal Spirit fund, and the Cal Athletic Department. The committee also received the largest amount of funding of any student group from the ASUC, S7900. fith this funding, the group was able to increase publicity for their largest event of the year, the Big Game Bonfire Rally. Over 7000 fans filled the Greek Theatre on the eve of the Big Game to see the rally, which included a Rally Comm skit, performances by the Cal Band, cheers led by alumni yell leaders, and the telling of the History of the Axe. Committee members spent the entire day building the bonfire with 125 pallets of wood, practicing the skit, painting banners, and setting up the pyrotechnical displays. " We started some new events, " said director of stunts Patrick Campbell (sophomore). " This year was the first ever Dorm Stunt. We arranged the cards from stadium card stunts to spell out the Cal logo in the east windows of Freeborn Hall in Unit One. Hopefully, this will become a tradition. " Additionally, the Committee was officially put in charge of the Script Cal flags that lead the team onto the field and are waved on the sideline. Besides football, the committee attends other sporting events with the California banner and flags, which include: basketball, volleyball, soccer, water polo, swimming, base- ball, Softball, crew, and rugby. At both men ' s and women ' s basketball games, the committee cares for the California Carpet that the players walk down during their line up. In spite of all the work, the bottom line for Rally Comm has always been to have a good time. Rally Comm members also plan road trips to away games, numerous parties, and other events throughout the year that allow them to social- ize away from organized spirit functions Although the UC Rally Committee received increased funding this year due to the looth Big Game, most of these extra donations will not be readily obtained in the future Director of security Xavier Hernandez, Jr. (senior) said, " It costs more and more each year to sponsor campus activi- ties, and in time, the group may not be able to do them if the University is unwilling to increase the amount of sup- port they offer. " As recently as the early 1980s, the UC Rally Committee was able to hold a bonfire rally before each home game in the Greek Theatre; over the years, the in- creasing rental fees for the Greek has allowed for only one per year, this year ' s Big Game Rally costing over $6000. 8 2 t has been raining — the bright red and yellow maple leaves are wet and stuck to the pavement, leaving dirty outlines contrasting with the vibrant shapes. Deep green needles shine with the drops from the recent sho ' wers in the cool air. There are a lot of people going to the Big Game bonfire rally tonight, and not just students. I ' m meeting two gen- erations of Cal alumni in my family— my parents and their parents. I come from a long line of Cal people— even my grandparents ' parents were alumni. (I walk home listening to songs that my grandmother composed decades ago played on the Campanile.) My brother, also a student, and I continue the tradi- tion. I see men in their 30 ' s with young children and Old Blues in their 6o ' s and 70 ' s in coats and ties, some of them leaning on canes or on their wives as they are escorted across the hill. I see more men than women, more young than old, more white than black. The Greek Theater is practically hid- den on the northeast side of campus. People have no idea what v ' onder greets them inside when they make their way through the gates and heave themselves up the huge stone stairs and around to the left on the way to the top. Dark trees are outlined by the midnight blue sky; light flickerings splash silhouettes up to the tops of the branches. The theater is so large, and so simple, and so regal all at once that one won- ders why we ever witness great things indoors. Divided into threi basic sections, with an enormous concrete " flat " or " pit " at the bottom huge slabs of stone rise up and out in the lorm of exaggerated seats Wet green grass takes over at the top of the stone and reaches bad into the darkness of the night hills. The stage sits in front of , backdrop of enormous stone pillars, designed much like the Parthenon with vertical grooves and carved decorations at the top that meet thi pointed roof. No curtains are needed, no doors The Greek Theate presents itself in a proud and humble splendor to those who havi come for any event in the past q years. Most importantly, in the middle ol this pit is a mountain of wood once fruit crates or storage boxes, the pieces are balanced in a statu reaching over 30 feet high, encircled with banners, hand-painted ii anticipation of their joyous destruction.

I m around to look up at my section. A blond boy, maybe eight years d, is admiring his new Big Game T-shirt that compares the two hools towers. (Of course, Cal ' s is larger!) His dad has a half-smile on s face as he looks around and takes in the energy of the crowd. No one is on stage. I don ' t even see a trace of the Cal band, but I low they are somewhere behind the great wall of pillars. I don ' t, for veral minutes, see a single person I know, but they all look familiar, doubt that my Dad recognizes anyone either, hut we don ' t feel one. It is almost 7:30. My Dad sits happily to my left looking at all of the udents. I imagine my dad on campus, entering the same buildings lat I do, sitting maybe in the same desks, hanging out with his iends in the same places. When I say that Berkeley hasn ' t changed luch over the years, I also mean that the spirit of the student body isn ' t changed. My Dad still fits in here with all of my friends. We are all, as he would say proudly, " Cal people. " The lights dim now and the Rally Comm bumblebees buzz around up top on the semicircle and on the bottom next to the entrances to the pit. They have us surrounded. The wooden crates decorated in festive banners sit and wait and hope that it doesn ' t rain. This year ' s yell-leader walks on stage. I am sure that he i s nervous but he just doesn ' t show it. I can ' t see his facial expressions very well. That ' s why at the Greek Theater one has to put so much feeling into voice. I ow ' s EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT? " he yells into the microphone. The crowd utters a low roar, not too loud for near capacity-filled sections of stone. " Is EVERYONE GETTING EXCITED ABOUT THE BIG GAME? " he asks, turning to pace the other way along the long stage. The crowd roars a little louder. Rally Comm pumps their hands in circles. " Well, THEN, let ' s GET THIS THING STARTED! " All of the lights on the Stage go out and we hear the sound of a firecracker. Focus 83 The bonfire is still not lit but then we see what light has been set off. A crackly, sparkling design on stage hanging from one of the pillars lights up with the symbol of the looth Big Game and California ' s bold colors. It snaps and whistles and the crowd loves it. They cheer until the lights die out. My attention turns to the great pile of wood crates, and I see about four bumblebees in a row on either side of the pile, all holding a string. The Big Game symbol on stage is almost completely out, leaving the expectant audience in darkness, wondering what ' s next, and what the bumble- bees are waiting for. The last spark fizzled out on stage at the exact moment four large booms erupted, sending firecrackers into the air around the crates— suddenly they were on fire. My Dad whooped as the flame grew higher and higher. The yell leader was saying something to everyone but no one was listening. In a school of thousands of students, one single marvelous flame that lit up the entire crowd of all ages had their undivided attention. The fire climbed higher and higher into the sky, reaching up to touch the stars and tickling the tips of the tree tops on the way. I watched the eyes of those around me as they shined with delight and we held our hands up in front of our faces to shield ourselves from the heat. Just a fev seconds ago I could feel the chill of the stone underneath my legs, and now there were guys in the front row with their shirts off. It was still November. I glance over at my Dad and see the flames dance off his glasses. How many bonfires had he seen? When we were growing up, he ' d cover our eyes when naked students would streak around the fire, their bodies painted in blue and gold. No streakers tonight, though. The band plays on the stage, their magnificent gold embroidered cords and belts on their uniforms shining in the light. We wait expectantly for voices of the past to entertain us with their stories about the uni- versity that was still theirs. A rally like this is where speakers get respect. An Old Blue comes out to tell his annual story about the History of the Axe, the symbol of victory which was at stake in the game tomorrow. There is nothing but laughter and cheers— even to jokes that anyone on any other day would have deemed " old fashioned " or " corny. " This Old Blue is like everyone ' s grandpa. " freshmen, mork wood " comes the chant from the crowd, noticing that (he once all-engulfing bonfire is now of mere marshmallow roasting size. From the side en- trance comes Rally Comm, two by two, some with their hair dyed a pale blue from Kool-Aid, and they feed the hungry fire, " freshmkn, more wood " the chant continues. We all want to see the blaze as it was in its first few minutes, but we settle Inr j soft glow under the now- visible stars. 8 ) ) focus With a limit of 125 pallets set by the State Fire Marshall, Rally Committee members, left, stack 1 1 2 pallets and reserve 13 for " Freshmen More Wood.

" Ladies and gentelemen, JAMIE SUTTON!! " My Dad is very excited, as he remembers Sutton from years ago. I squint, trying to see his facial expression. Dressed in a dark suit, a blue shirt, and a bow tie, he looks like he could be in college on his way to a first inten.dew. He carries a folding chair in one hand. The crowd grows silent. " This. " he says, pausing for a moment, " is the great- est UNIVERSin- IN the WORLD. " Such simple words, stated so plainly and honestly. Any student from any school on any corner of the earth would have believed him right then and there The crowd of blue and gold goes wild. He raises his voice and speaks more quickly. " This is the greatest university in the world " he repeated. " And you want to know why? " No one really cares but he tells us anyway, " because we have the best FANS IN THE WORLD! " Now I know why I remember Jamie Sutton. He believed, that as a Uttle girl, sleeping in the peanut shells at halftime, I could root the Bears on to victory. Now, here I am, almost grown-up, sitting in between my Dad and my friends, and suffon is still giving us the power. Who cares if Cal hasn ' t had the greatest of seasons? And the folding chair he brings? Simply so he ' d have a place to put his jacket and tie when he takes them off before cheering wdth the roaring theater. It makes sense, since the stage is wet with the recent rains, but he does it every year. Now I remember. The crowd is growing cold, as " freshmen more wood " begins again. The little boy behind me who was so full of energy before is now sleepy. The band begins to play again and small Dixie cups are passed around by the bumblebees. In them are blue birthday cake- sized candles. I don ' t know who has the light first, or where it started in each section, but I watch the thousands of students spread little flickering lights to one another in no time at all. It is my turn to light my candle, from my Dad on my left, and I pass it up to the little boy above me. With the Greek theater lit up by candles, it is not nearly as lit up as Focus 85 when the bonfire was at its peak, hut now there is an individual glowing, like thou- sands of little stars all moving to the same song, the alma mater My Dad looks around in amazement, even though he ' s seen the candle ceremony so many times before. " Isn ' t that incred- ible? " he asks. " Look how bright it is again. " We watch as the light spreads all the way to the corners, to the edges of the stone slabs. My Dad, class of ' 66, Mark and I, gradu- ating in ' 98, our other friends, ' 99. The boy behind me, in the blue rugby shirt with thin gold stripes? Maybe the class of 2010. His father? Perhaps the class of ' 82. The Old Blues with their wives, the ' 30s or so. To be a part of a university that embraces and encompasses so much. ..My candle has burned almost halfway down. After a while, several candles blow out quickly; the wind is picking up after about an hour of perfect stillness. But there are hundreds of people all around from whom to relight. The Bonfire Rally is about more than just football. Holding candles, standing in the light of the university, class of ' 31 or ' 10 (2010, that is): we are all children of this university. Eventually, the lights flicker out; some because they burn down to stubs, biting the tips of fingers with heat, and some because the wind blows in persistent gusts, dousing the new and weak flames upon relighting. We file out onto the eucalyp- tus-lined street. My Dad is always happy to be in Ber- keley. I know he has witnessed more wins and losses than all of us put together, and inside, I feel that although he too wants Cal to win tomorrow, it doesn ' t matter as much as it does to the Rally Committee, or even to the little boy in the rugby shirt. He is not a fair-weather fan. And indeed, it might even rain, I think, looking up at the sky. But the stars are still there.

Come closer. Closer. Put your nose about an inch from the " w " in the word " win " and this is how close our California Golden Bears football team came to reclaiming " The Axe " and winning this year ' s Big Game. In typical Big Game fashion, the game came down to the wire with an unruly crowd. The intensity on the field was what it always had been, not just one team against another. The first few minutes of the looth Big Game were not as exciting as the opening ceremonies, hut the tempo intensified as Cal made their way down the field on a powerful drive consisting of a successful 3rd ' and-s conversion to Bobby Shav.-- and a speedy run by Tarik Smith bringing the Bears all the way to Stanford ' s 38 ' yard line. The drive, ho vever, came to a halt as quarterback Justin Vedder, junior transfer from Saddleback Junior College, in a 2nd- and-6 situation was intercepted after at- tempting to hit Bruce Pierre on a slant pattern. The ball was deflected at the line of scrimmage and Stanford ' s Corey Hill intercepted the pass and returned it for 41 yards for the first score of the 100th Big Game and an early 7-0 Cardinal lead. Focus 87 ft ' ' . The Bears went 3-and-out on their next possession, and after Cardinal quarterback Chad Hutchinson connected with Troy Walters on a 30-yard pass down the right sideline, Stanford found themselves at the Cal 17 and it appeared that they were going to add to their lead. The Cal defense had different plans as the Bears stood their ground, forcing a 27-yard Kevin Miller field goal attempt. As Stanford lined up for the kick, Cal linebacker Matt Beck mis-timed his rush and wound up hurdling the line of scrimmage prior to the snap. The 5-yard penalty gave Stanford a first and goal, but powerful penetration by the defensive line resulted in a mix-up in the Stanford backfield and consequently Hutchinson fumbled the hand-off attempt. Out of the confusion of the fumble, Cal ' s Kato Serwanga emerged in celebration and relief as he recovered the loose hall at the Cal 11-yard line, killing the Stanford drive. Despite the great defensive stand by the Golden Bears, the offense was unable to convert a first down; and a short punt by Nick Harris set the Cardinal up at the California 38. On the ensuing drive, Stanford increased its advantage over Cal with a 13-yard Anthony Bookman touchdown run. Matt Beck once again found himself in the air attempting to block yet another point after touchdown and this time found success, holding the Cardi- nal lead to 13 points. With just over five minutes left to go in the 2nd quarter the Bears found themselves scoreless, but the 13 point deficit would not be long lived as the Cal offense hit the field with an extreme burst of energy. Vedder led the Bears on a 6-play, 74-yard scoring drive that brought the Bears within 6 points. The larger sum of the drive consisted of an 11-yard pass to Shaw, a 12-yard connec- tion with Douglas that moved the ball into Stanford territory, and an on-the-money shot to wide-open Brian Surgener for 27 yards, bringing the Bears to the Cardinal 21-yard line. Just two plays later, senior Tarik Smith took a hand off up the middle and broke three tackles as he trucked for- ward to score the first Califor- nia touchdown of the game. The Bear de- fense continued with an out- standing perfor- mance as they held Stanford from converting a 1st down, and the following punt was re- turned 55 yards by sophomore running back Deltha O ' Neal all the way to the Stanford 23-yard line. As the Bears lined up over the ball, scoring seemed eminent, and the Bears were in position to take their first lead of the game. Again Cal opted to give the ball to their trusted running back Tarik Smith, but Smith fumbled the ball two plays and the Cal drive ended This error led to a Stanford 83-yard 5-play drive and the Cardinal ' s advantage grew to 21-7 as they successfully conducted a 2-point conversion to 88 Rally Committee members arrive early, top, for the 100th Big Game to " reserve " their seats in the north endzone section at Stanford Stadium.

Two Vedder scrambles gave the Bears a first down at the 22-yard line; hov ever, the progress turned to regression as the ball was moved back to the 2g-yard line due to a grounding penalty. With nearly no time remaining on the clock, Ignacio Brache attempted his longest kick ever as he hooted a 46-yarder directly through the uprights, moving the Bears v ithin u points of Stanford at the half, 21-10. Meanwhile the Cal defense was keeping the Bears in the game as Stanford could only manage two 1st down conversions and 56-yard total offense during the third quarter. Stanford finally was able to move the ball to open the 4th quarter as the Cardinal took their opening drive and moved to the Bear ' s 23-yard line. But the Cal defense shut the drive down there, forcing a 4G-yard Miller field goal attempt which sailed v ide left. Taking over after the defensive stand, Vedder marched the Bears 77 yards on 11 plays as the Bears trimmed the lead to 21-18. The drive appeared to stall only 3 plays in as Vedder scrambled for his life on 3rd-and-7 from the Cal 26 until he found Douglas streaking across the middle of the field for a 13-yard completion and a 1st down. Three plays later it v as Vedder to Douglas again, this time for 27 yards dov n to the Stanford 33. A 13-yard completion to Shaw moved the ball to the 16, and after Fields slammed up the middle for four more yards, Vedder found senior Bobby Shaw for his loth touchdown of the season to cut the Stanford advant age to 21-16. Knowing a two-point conver- sion would put the Bears within a field goal, Cal head coach Tom Holmoe sent the offen- sive unit back onto the field for a 2-point attempt. After a play-action fake to Fields, Vedder rolled to his left and found an open Brian Surgener at the goalline who fell into the endzone for the conversion. Due to another stellar defensive stand by the Cal defense, the Bears got the ball back only 1:46 later. Starting at their own 41 with nearly 3 minutes remaining, Cal looked to be in good position to at least tie the game. How- ever, after driving to the Stanford 33, Vedder was intercepted by Stanford linebacker Chris Draft at the 14 and the Bears ' comeback at- tempt appeared foiled. After yet another fantastic stand by the Bear defense, the Cardinal opted to take a safety on the fourth down rather than risk having their punt blocked. The Cardinal free kick was returned 15 yards to the Cal 40 by O ' Neal with only 0:14 remaining in the game. The Cal offense returned to the field for their last chance to clinch ' The Axe, " but two Vedder desperation passes came up incomplete and the Stanford Cardinal narrowly escaped with a 21-20 victory, denying the Bears victory. Focus 8 9 ffisteri hn p u National documentary television series Frontline brings opportunity for production experience to journalism students ■ BY LAWRENCE YEE A number of UC Berkeley students enrolled in the Graduate School of Journalism have been given the unique opportunity to work alongside professional produc ers and editors on the acclaimed documentary television series Frontline. The idea to bring Frontline to UC Berkeley began two years ago. Aware that Fronilmc was seeking to branch out from its East Coast headquarters, Graduate School of Journal- ism Dean, Orville Schell, made a proposal to Frontlmc ' s executive producer to establish a site on campus, suggesting that the new bureau, which would be housed at North Gate Hall, would be mutually beneficial to both Fnnitlinc ' and the university. The facility would give Frontlmc its much sought presence on the West Coast and journalism students would receive first-hand experience working with some of the finest professionals in their field of study An agreement was made and Frontline West was born. Schell enlisted the help of Sharon Tiller, ' 64, Fronllinc ' i senior producer of special projects, to help develop the program on campus. With a generous donation from the Sandler Family Foundation, Schell and Tiller remodeled a designated space in North Gate Hall and purchased new editing equipment. Tiller then stepped up to head the program. The location of the new program was propitious; Front ini, ' West ' s first project " Little Criminals, " about the attack of an infant by a six-year-old Richmond boy was less than an hour ' s drive from Berkeley. The show is aired weekly through WBGH in Boston and carried nationally on 20U public broadcast stations, including local Bay area affiliate KQED, channel 9, reaching 4 million to 10 million viewers. On the air since 198 , the show produces eighteen to twenty hours of public affairs documentaries each season. " Inside the Tobacco Deal, " scheduled to air during the 1998 season, is the most recent documen- tary to be produced at Fnnitlitit ' s new bureau, located right here on campus Topics are not always easily chosen. Frontlme commissions independent produc- ers to work on each documentary. Certain issues such as education, health care, race relations, the media, government and corporate corruption are reoccuring. Tiller explains, " It ' s very hard [to pick a good topic] because you have to find a subject area that is going to be cutting edge six months to a year, .md then find the right producer to work on it. " ' Il li k J T IS VERY H.ARD TO PICK .A GOOD Tone] BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO EINIl A SllllJECE AREA IHAl IS GOING 10 BE CUTTING EDGE Sl. MONTHS TO A YEAR ERCIM NOW, AND THEN EINP EHl RIGM I i PRtiniiCHR 10 WORK ON IT. —Sharon Tiller, Senior PriiJintr, Fi.iiitfiii - 90 The latesr documentary produced on the ampus site, " Inside the Tobacco Deal, " exam- ines the recent negotiations that took place between the states, federal government, and large tobacco companies in reaching an out- af-state court settlement. Five UC Berkeley students worked with producer Neil Dorchety on the project as sio hour apprentices spend- ing fifteen to twenty hours a week research- ing material, conducting phone interviews, assist- ing with editing, and organizing archK ' al footage. One of the primary reasons that Frontline ' came to Berkeley was to identify a more diverse group of talent Tiller has been impressed with the student ' s work, even recommend- ing some of them for production positions back east. The Front(mt ' ' West bureau at UC Berkeley also sponsors other programs at the Journalism School. Because documentary making is a specialized craft, only a handful of stu- dents can participate as student apprentices. While Tiller would like as many interested students in the graduate programs to get in- volved, there is not enough accessibility to the production facility. However, new classes have been offered that give an insider ' s per- spective on the documentary filmmaking pro- cess. In the Fall 1997 semester, -isiting pro- ducer Neil Dorchety taught a course along with producer Lowell Bergman on investigative reporting. Tiller, who produced the contro- versial documentary about race relations at Berkeley High School called " School Colors, " taught a seminar this spring called The Front- lint Documentary; News as a Narrative of Our Times. " Drawing upon her own experi- ence in filmmaking and position as senior producer at Frontline West, Tiller not only taught about the show, but also about journalistic stan- dards. Students were asked to evaluate Fnintlitv documentaiies to detemiine their level of objec- tivity with fiiTTitlini ' producers serving as guest lecturers, presenting and discussing their work. Tiller has high hopes for FJimtliiu ' s future at UC Berkeley. When the program was initially developed at the university, an agreement was made berv ' een the unrv-ersity and FJimtliru. ' that the partnership would List three years at which time the two would evaluate the program ' s success. Pleased with the results of the documentary projects .md the K.ird work and dediaition of the students. Tiller is more than confident that the relationship will be renewed for several more years. It is her goal to even- tually have two documentaries produced on the campus facilities each year, one per se- mester, allowing ten to fifteen students to par- ticipate in the apprenticeship program each year. Focus 91 " We cami: to cjiips wriii eaci i oi i ier as reae ENTITIES, NOT IMAGES ON TRAVEE POSTERS. " BY ELIZABETH OH House Diplomat pilling off of Joseph Lurie ' s desk, a number of tokens and trinkets col- ected from around the world in ex- tensive travels and as gifts from friends adorn his office. Among them a Chinese paint- ing of cherry blossoms, masks from Korea, a wooden statue of a hand holding an egg from Ghana, a Polish cutout, and a statue of Nefertiti from Egypt. Although Lurie ' s official job descrip- tion as the executive director of the Inter- national House involves managing a multi- million dollar budget, fundraising, and day- to-day paperwork, he believes that the most important requirement of his job involves something that is difficult to put to paper. Lurie begins, " A former alumna once said, ' We came to grips with each other as real entities, not images on travel posters. One in which we had to deal with the realities of our own ethnocentrisms, and not abstractly either. One in which we were bent, hurt, pleasured, delighted, en- lightened, changed in short. One in which we grew. ' That ' s the most important part of my job— to foster an environment where people can get to know each other and discover other cultural realities in a re- laxed, unforced setting, where people are more likely to and more comfortable to explore differences, whether they are ra- cial, economic, or cultural " Established as the largest and most di- verse multinational, residential, and cul- tural center in the western United States, the House was founded in 1929 to " foster interaction and fellowship among American and foreign students and scholars in order to further the cause of global understanding and peace. " Com- mitted to expanding the realities of stu dents and making diversity and under- standing among students a top priority, Joseph Lurie became its third executive director in 1988. Lurie graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an M.A. in African lan- guage and literature. After teaching at McGill University while and earning his MA. in English literature, he went to Columbia University to stud y education, earning a teaching certificate in English. He then traveled to Kenya, working as a teaching vol- unteer in the Peace Corps where he lived for three years. It was there that he real- ized his passion of v orking in the field of cultural ex- change. " My Peace Corps experience opened my eyes in amaring ways, " he says. " I learned that there was such a range of differences within black and white. " Known as " Mr. International House, " Lurie, who spends much of his time talk- ing to students, makes it a point to know each resident by name, noting, " Fart of the reason I [do it] is because of why I- House was founded. " The idea of estab- lishing an International House in Berkeley was part of a larger International House movement founded by Harry Edmonds. As a young man working lor the New York YMCA in igog, Edmonds met a Chi- nese student upon offering a casual " good morning " on the steps of the Columbia University library. The student responded, " I ' ve been in New York three weeks and 92 nternational House residents and guests so- iaiize in the courtyard at the annual Spring est. Held each April, residents celebrate the liversity of cultures found in the house with uisine samples, a fashion show, informa- ional booths, and special programs.

" I-House began because someone un- derstood that someone from another coun- try was entirely alone, " says Lurie. Part of the purpose of the House is to make ev- eryone feel welcome. If I knoNv [students ' ] names, [they] feel that they aren ' t alone, that someone recognizes them. " Lurie readily admits that the I-House in 1988. is not a perfect microcosm. " We do have cultural clashes, staff conflicts, and disci- plinary problems, " he says. " But for every problem, there are ten inspirations. When I see someone from Kenya eating dinner with someone from Lebanon, I get excited. I hope that each resident of I-House will leave with a bigger vision of life and of people. I hope that when they leave, they will be more sensitive to standing up to bigotry and prejudice when they see it. " The legacy that Lurie hopes to leave expands far beyond his provincial scope. " I want each student to leave here more excited and enthusiastic of the world. I hope that they will be more sensitive to different cultures and that they will stand up against prejudice, " says Lurie. " My dream is that some of them will start up their own I-House. " ■ Focus 93 It s something Fd like to do for the rest of my life. Toby Jaw MisbGhaviri BY JAKE MANABAT BACKSTAGE AT New York City ' s Carnegie Hall, the Mens Octet waited their turn in the final round of the National Championship of College A Cappella. With a program including music of the Muppets and Ma- donna, the underdogs in a field of six regional finalists banked heavily on their unique high-energy performance style uncommon in a cappella circles. Music director Jeff Manabat remembers, " These people had never seen us perform before. We wanted to inake sure that once they saw us, they would never forget us. " Eight months of exhaustive rehearsals and numerous concerts were condensed into a powerful i -minute perfor- mance that brought the packed Carnegie Hall audience to its feet and won the Men ' s Octet the title of National Champions of College A Cappella. Even a competing group member ' s mother said during intermission, " I couldn ' t help cheering for you I ' ve never seen anything like you guys! " Inspirational Origins The 30-year Cal tradition started at a party following a Yale Glee Club concert in San Francisco in 1948. Two UC Men ' s Glee Club (now UC Men ' s Chorale) members. Howdy Brownson and joe Willits, organized a quartet u ' hich soon grew into the Senior Men ' s Octet. Members included Hal Thompson ' 4- Howdy Brownson, Joe Willits, Paul Terry CaVs ' 50th Octet, bent on pleasing their audience 9 ' ' H ir Cj, . It f x: iV— " 1 48), Tom DeHaven, Dick Teeter, Tom Tonkin (all 49), d Bob Rice " so. Born out of the barbershop tradition, the 3up ' s repertoire in the 50 ' s included songs such as " Mood digo, " " Ain ' t Misbehavin, " " Stairway to the Stars, " " Rag- tie Cowboy Joe, " and the barbershop-derived " Mosqui- :s, " " Daisy, " and " Old Joe. " The Octet quickly established its popularity on campus d around the Bay Area. In a letter dated December 7, 1958, argaret Cartwright, the assemblies coordinator at nearby ayton Valley High School, wrote, " Words fail me. Every- le has been raving about the assembly! Five boys rushed ) to me to know if we could have such a singing group; ree asked the football coach!

" New Goals for a Golden Anniversary Year To commemorate half a century of a Gal tradition, the 1997-98 Octet started the year with new goals. Durmg the summer, twins Jake and Jeff Manabat, business manager and music director respectively, envisioned an Octet that would exceed previous expectations of musicality and presentation, exhibit professionalism in all aspects of perfor- mance, and, most importantly, fire up the audience like never before. With three new members, including Edd Taylor, Toby nth polish and pi ' vogue ' from New York to Australia as champi Focus 9 5 Misbehavin ' Ryan Antonelli, 19, baritone major: undeclared from: Davis, Calif.

Kristofer Velasquez, 18, tenor 1 major: English from: Citrus Heights, Calif Jaw, and Kris Velasquez, and three semester-old mem- bers, Tyler Bryant, Ryan Antonelli, and Demian Oksenendler, the number of rehearsals and the way rehearsals were conducted would need to change to meet these goals. The student-led rehearsals were expanded to Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., reduced only for the holidays (to accommo- date gigs as well as vacation), and extended by hours and sometimes days for major concerts and perfor- mances. .— — --__. Although the music direc- tor leads rehearsals, all mem- bers teach and critique each other and the group as a whole. Though rehersals involve dis- cipline and work, Demian notes that " play is allowed and actually encouraged. It ' s part of the essential character of the group. If you ' re not having tun, then you shouldn ' t be doing it. Whether we succeed or fail, the object is to enjoy it. " Ryan adds, " I ' ve probably worked harder for the Octet more than anything else, but it ' s so enjoyable, it doesn ' t seem like work at all. We accom- plish so much because we have inspired leadership and a won- derful group dynamic. I feel extremely privileged to work with these guys. " Members of the campus musical community have criti- cized the Octet for its ' con- temporary choreography and exploration of the non-musi- cal aspects of performance, but the group is unfazed. Toby says, " We ' re the best at what we do and I ' m proud of it, " Jeff, a music minor, adds, " People don ' t realize that the group is student-led. A student-led group with student-written arrangements will never take the group ' s musicality to a level near that of a group with a professional director with many years of experience and published arrangements that have been performed by countless others. You want great masterpieces written by legends and directed by a professional? Go see Chamber Chorus. You want great performances of student arrangements led by the students themselves? Go see the Men ' s Octet. " The repertoire of the Octet has always empha- sized a lighter fare In a letter dated September i, 1966, Walter R. Smith, then associate business man- ager ol the Glee Club, wrote: " As might be expected, the Octet ' s repertoire has its emphasis on light music This makes it ideal for rounding out GL Club performances as well as providing suitab entertainment for organizations and activities. Tl repertoire is light, but it is performed with a prec sion and ease that has made the Senior Men ' s Oct one of the most popular entertainment organizatioi on the campus and in the surrounding community Indeed, the group also hires itself out for universi activities, company functions, and private parties.

' lat letter made me feel real good about what the lole group is for. That ' s what being in the Octet is about. " Wild and Crazy Schedule After a dizzying Big Game puddle-jumper ap- arance schedule on Friday (see sidebar), the Octet larded CalTrain ' s ten-car " Big Game Train " at 9 a.m. on Saturday to entertain Cal alumni. After an hour of belting out Cal fight songs, the train arrived at Stanford and the Octet moved on to the California Alumni Association ' s Official Tiilgate to sing more fight songs. Joined by the California Golden Over- tones at the game, the two groups cheered together in the Cal section. Although the Octet did not sing later that day, the group performed at a funeral service for a Cal alumnus the very next afternoon, despite having had one member lose his voice. Jeff Manabat recalls, " That weekend was crazy. We sang nothing but fight songs for three straight days! What made it even more spe- cial was that at the looth Big Game the 50th Octet sang. " The Celebration The group cel- ebrated its golden anniversary with fans, family, friends, and alumni on Thursday, March 12 and Friday, March 13 with a 50th An- niversary Spring Show held in Wheeler Audito- rium to accommo- date student de- mand and one hun- dred Octet alumni flying in from around the country. The California Golden Overtones, the Gentlemen of the College of Wil- liam and Mary, and the Stanford Men- dicants all paid trib- ute at the Thurs- day night perfor- mance. The sold- out Friday night show featured more of the Over- tones and a performance from four of the original Octet including Howdy Brownson, Tom DeHaven, Dick Teeter, and Joe Willits, who were greeted with a standing ovation. The second half of both shows opened with a homemade, 20-minute movie written and directed by the Octet that parodied popculture icons such as Mortal Kombat, the Wizard of Oz, Star Wars. Scooby- Doo, Superman, and Mentos. On both nights, the Wheeler audience gave two standing ovations elicit- ing two rivoting encores. The celebration continued with a gathering on Sleep Hot Scheduled! The busiest weekend of " gigs " for the group this year was the 100th Big Came weekend. Starting on Friday, November 21, the Octet sang for: 7 A.M.-KFOG Morning Show in San Francisco 11:15 A.M. -Class of 1930 in the Ferry Building in San Francisco Noon-Class of 1937 atTrader Vic ' s in Emeryville I P.M. -Class of 1935 at the Orinda Country Club 4 TO 8:30 P.M. -Big Auction at the Cow Palace in San Francisco 9 P.M. -Class of 1952 9:30 P.M. -Wine Food SociFPy both at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco 10 P.M. -Chinese Chapter at the Empress of China in San Francisco 10:45 P.M. -Class of 1957 at the Lakeview Club in Oakland. Twinsjake and Jeff Manabat set the goals and ran a tight ship at rehearsals, which paid off with a national title. The two had sung in the Octet for three years with Iocs of audience appeal, but little formal recognition.

The reunion evening wound through a " Parade of Octets, " tracing the changes in musical style through groupings of Octets that spanned half a century. Brovvnson, one of the six of the original Octet who sang that night, noted in the June iggS issue of California Monthly that these six who had sung at a reunion of the Class of 1898, were now singing to the Class of ' 98, and they expected the current Octet to sing to the Class of 2048. The evening ended with more singing at Stephen Hall ' s archway. Sunday brunch at the Alumni House featured reminis- cences from Rob- ert Commanday, M.A. ' 52, the mu- sic and dance critic for the San Francisco Chronicle from 196s to 1993 and the director of the UC Men ' s Glee Club and Treble Clef Society from 1950 to 1963. At the brunch, Com- manday awarded Jeff the Chronicle ' s " Clapping Man " in recognition of the musical excellence the Octet achieved under Jeff ' s direction. Toby and Kris (front) and Tyler, Demian, Ryan, Edd, Jake and Jeff celebrate after the national competition outside Carnegie Hall with trophy and flowers. A Competition in New York Though the year ' s exhaustive schedule prepared the Octet for Nationals at Carnegie Hall, they found themselves disadvantaged on several lev- els. For one, the eight-man group was the smallest competing, with the next smallest con- sisting of to members and the largest numbering 16. The Octet had to step up its sound— the sound of eight voices is significantly less full than that of 16, and noticeably less full than ten. More crucially, the group decided two weeks before the final round to replace two songs in their 15-minute set with " Vogue " and " I Got Dreams to Remember " after the songs received a zealous response at their debut at the spring concert, just five days after winning the A Cappella Western Regional at Stanford University. By the time nationals came around, the Octet had been performing the songs for less than two months and was aware that the songs were still in need of some tweaking. Many of the group ' s com- petitors had been singing the same set since divisional in late January and early February. In fact, the Octet was the only group to change its set between the regional and the final round. Most importantly, the group, used to receiving strong support from di« hard fans, recognized that few would make a shov ing at Carnegie. Amidst a thousand fans of the oth« groups v ere so to 60 Octet supporters— a large chuni interestingly enough, was last year ' s nationa l chart pions from Stanford, Talisman a cappella. From the moment the Octet started its set wit " The Muppet ShoNv, " the audience was hooked. A audience member said during intermission, " When saw you guys line up in formation for your fir: song, I knew I was in for some fun. " If " TF Muppet Show " was silly, " Vogue " was sexy an showy. Commanday, in his article " Singing the Blue: from the June 19c issue of Calijorn MontliK ' , describe their version c " Vogue " best: " Tf eight singers chanj positions ince; santly, now re ' ob ing around a sok ist, now bobbir up and down, kind of Michai Smuin cum Twy Tharp moder show and dance. They calme the audience wit " I Got Dreams 1 Remember, " d( scribed by one judge as a " very tender and swee ballad, and closed with a parodic take of " Do Re M from Tfif SounJ of Music. As the Octet ' s last notes echoed through Carneg Hall, the audience, most of whom came to suppo the other groups, rose to their feet and cheered tf Octet with a standing ovation. Although the Oct ' did not win any of the preliminary awards, such . best soloist and best arrangement, Toby knew thei was a chance the Octet would win the national titl " I knew it was either us or Indiana University Straight No Chaser.

" I EORGE: Do any of you have formal training or future plans in music? IKris: I ' ve been singing in choirs since the sec- ond grade— concert choirs, chamber choirs and other groups. I ' ve had a little bit of voice train- g. Music is just something I enjoy, so I ' ll be sing- g, hopefully, for the rest of my life, but I don ' t plan pursue it as a career. Toby: Music for me is something that I grew up ith. I play the piano and the trumpet, but I never ally started singing until about three years ago hen I joined a group on campus called DeCadence. he next year I did Cal Ja:z Choir, and then the en ' s Octet. It ' s something I would like to do for the St of my life, career or not. George: Why did you audition for the Octet? Jake: I wanted a musical theater experience, and ley didn ' t have any when I came to Cal. The closest ling to musical theater was the Men ' s Octet. I only w them two times before my audition, but those mes were like, wow, that ' s really cool — they sing, The Octet spent two weeks in Australia in June. A friend of Toby ' s arranged their performance at an Amnesty Interna- tional fundraiser at the University of New South Wales. The group used revenue from performances to pay for the trip, which included a visit to the Blue Mountains, above. they dance, they kind of act— that ' s something I would like to do. I ended up in a musical theater workshop. One of my classmates was in the Over- tones and she mentioned the Octet needed tenors. So my brother and I auditioned. Kris: It ' s kind of an interesting story. My first year at Cal I was totally miserable. I was living in the dorms and I didn ' t get along with anyone. So I decided to leave school and go to a community college in Sacramento for the junior year. Then I saw a flyer for the Men ' s Octet and my friends encour- aged me to audition and I got in. I had a really good opportunity, so I gave Berkeley another chance. I turned 180 degrees. I had a great experience last year and I love Cal. I met really great people and had a really good time. It gave me a purpose here, whereas in my freshman year, I would just sleep or do my homework. Toby: I was singing in another group and I wanted to broaden my musical horirons.

So I auditioned and I got in the same time as Kris, spring of 97. George: Do you sociahze together? Jake and Toby: We ' re very good friends. Ris: Our rehearsals are really relaxed. One way to make it enjoyable is to have a good environment. We have a schedule of what songs we are going to sing and how much time we are going to work on them, but we can talk and joke. Toby: I think it helps with the fraternity between us. We have to be with each other so many hours out of the week that it helps to get along and to have a relaxed feel. Jake: Even though there is a relaxed feel, there is actually a definite structure. My brother is the music director, and every two weeks he spits out the schedule of what we are going to do every day. We rehearse every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thurs- day, and he has it broken down into half- hour or 43minute intervals with songs A ' e are working on, when break is, and when business is done. We always want to get the job done and be on schedule, so that by the time a big show comes, we ' re ready. George: So your main circle of friends outside of the Octet is the Octet? Jake: For me, it is true. When school is over, who am I going to call? Kris and Toby. Or else my old high school friends. My social circles do revolve around the Octet. George: Is it true, guys? Jake: Like last night, we rented Nintendo games and just played, me, Kris and Toby. It was like — it ' s midnight, let ' s go to Block- buster! Toby: And what are we doing tonight? We are watching videos. We have a video of our Australian trip. Eva: I am dying to know about Carnegie Hall. How did you guys feel after the semi- finals, and how did you feel after you won? Toby: I was struck by this overwhelm- ing wave of emotion. I really couldn ' t pro- cess it. It just really shows how hard we worked for it. We practiced so much. I practiced more with the Octet than I did juggling DeCadence and Cal Jazz Choir to- gether. And it ' s just great to know that something ' s there to show for it. Jake: When we won the semi-finals at Stanford, it was the hugest shock, just be- cause we didn ' t give ourselves a chance to win; w e just thought we were going to go. Our goal was to entertain the crowd and hope we would have the crowd on our side. There were six groups and in the past, our group has not been really been respected in the a cappella community. They don ' t like how we sing. The trend is to sing contemporary songs. Some groups will sing Sublime or Tori Amos, but we don ' t do that. So we didn ' t give ourselves a chance to win, and when they were announcing the results, second place was a group from Colorado. We were thinking if we could get second place, it would he really awesome. So, I was like, well, we didn ' t win second, we didn ' t win any other awards, and I assumed Stanford v ould get first place because they won the first round at Berkeley and were the favorites. Then they announced our name and there was a huge rush to my head and screaming. It was such a sur- prise that we won because we had no idea. We went out to the stage shocked and amazed. Toby: One thing I regret is that I ' ve never seen us perform from an audience perspective. You really don ' t know hov good you are until you ' ve seen your- self perform. And I think that we discredit a lot of the impact we have. I kind of felt we were the audience favorite. Jake: We got a standing ovation and we were in the middle of the program. All the performances we ' ve ever had we ' ve had standing ovations except for one. Toby: When I ' m watching us on tape— I ' ll use Edd as an example— I ' ve never real- ized what a great soloist Edd is. He uses his whole body, not just his voice, but his facial expressions, everything, to perform. That ' s something we don ' t see in ourselves when we are performing from the other side of the fence. Kris: One example, when we were sing- ing " Vogue " in Carnegie Hall, there is this point where Jake, Edd, and I are up in the front and take off our jackets and do this little move where we go down and pick thL-m up The crowd just yelled loud— it was a huge wall of sound ,ind wc couldn ' t hear at all Jake: My heart was racing so last I was like, " Oh my god, I can ' t hear Kris! " Kris: I feel that that ' s what we strive towards the most — to please our audiences. We knew for the competition wc wanted to be very competitive, but we wanted tc make sure we weren ' t straying too far frorr our objective, which was to entertain. What ever comes after that is added. I think wt were rewarded for that. We didn ' t pla) other people ' s games and sing stuff that ' ; not right for our group I think the judge; realized and took into account the hesi group was the crowd pleaser. At the Opera House, an alun asked the Octet to sing, whici drew thesejapanese tourists ii a swarm for pictures and song Toby: To emphasize ho ' much we lov pleasing the cro vd, after the first rounds we were first runnerup to Stanford ' s Mixec Company. I asked Jeff, " They ' re first place and we ' re second place, would you trade places with them? We got a standing ova- tion, but they didn ' t, but yet they took th( championship in the first round, " and ht said no. I don ' t think that any one of Ui would trade places with them simply be cause we felt so much love from the crowd George: You did not record anything this year? Jake: We recorded some, but we did noi release it ...A lot of people said that wher they just listen, it isn ' t the same. Eva: Can you tell us any funny stories! Kris: When we were in Sydney, a grouf of Cal Alumni took us out to lunch , A man, his wile, and their two daughters (.1 daughter goes to Cal now) tot k us out altei they hc.u ' d us singing on the sireci. They wanted to take some pictures of us, sci we walked over to the Sydney Opera House and started to sing a song on the steps and they started taking pictures. This huge herd 1 00 f Japanese tourists started rushing in. and ne would pretend to sing with us. take a icture. then someone else would run in. It as the funniest thing I ha e ever seen in ly life because we were in the middle of inging. and they were right in front of our ices gi ■ing us hugs and stufl Jake: It was cool — there were hundreds f tourists around the Opera House All of I T E R I E tt : An Uclet Trio Toby: I also feel like the music we do— 50 ' s, 6o ' s, do-wop— are timeless pieces and they ' re always going to he the in thing to sing. Also. I think musically, they are very simple songs, so they are very easy to catch on to. You can ' t .say the same thing about modern music. Kris: You could almost sing two or three of our songs on top of each other, and it sounds fine. Toby: Trust us [laughter] Kris: Also. I think the Octet is very proud of our history and we still sing songs that the origi- nal group sang. We sing songs from every decade that the group has arranged, and we are proud of it. Every time we sing a song called " Princess Papuli " . we say this song dates back to our fam- ily in 1948. I think you get that when you hear us. Jake: It ' s history. It ' s really fun when you go to the Alumni Reunion— Oh, let ' s sing " Bye-Bye Blues " — and everyone knows it, from the 20-year-old guy to the 70-year-old guy Kris: One of the coolest things we do in the reunion is on the Saturday night after the concert and banquet, the alumni We have to be w ith each Dther so many hours nut l " J° of the week that IT HELPS TQ GET ALONG and - it . acoustically to have a relaxed feel, toby jaw thebestpiace on campus. sudden, they started rushing towards us. George: How does your musical genre t into the pleasure you take in perfor- lance? Why do you stay in that genre? Jake: A lot of it is because we are hired at for the songs. A lot of people wuth loney remember that the o ' s and 6o ' s ' ere a gieat time in their lives and they ' ant to hear music from that era. Kris: I feel when we go to other compe- tions, we hear other groups sing really temporary songs and I think it ' s very ifficult to compare with a professional re- jrding artist. For the most part, it doesn ' t leasure up. I think that with the songs we loose, even if we do arrange something lore contemporary, there ' s been enough me that it ' s not on the radio and people " e really sick of it. It ' s really dark and cold, and you sit in a huge circle and sing for hours and someone just says, " Sing " Monday Monday ' " and everyone sings " Monday Monday. " It was my first year experiencing it, and I was just blown away by it. George: How do you develop and ar- range new songs? Kris: I think it was the first time this past spring that every one had an arrange- ment in our spring show. George: So each member has the abil- ity to sit down and arrange a piece? Kris: For the most part. If they don ' t have a great musical background— I think Toby helped a few of the guys with their arrangements— if anyone would ask, we would help them. Personally, it was just a great sense of pride when the Octet sang my arrangement; it was my first arrange- ment. I had only been in the group for half a semester, and when we sang it, the crowd loved it. It was like such a sense of joy I told everyone. It was called " The Promise. " George: After you experience this type of camaraderie, working towards one goal and enjoying it, where do you feel you will find a similar experience in your post-colle- giate lives? Toby: For me, probably never again, working as close with people on a daily basis, and having so much fun unless I follow this type of career, which I would consider doing, but it is tough to make it out there. ake: I wouldn ' t even begin to try to compare it with anything I am going to do in the future just because there will never be another oth anniversary Octet that went to Carnegie Hall, were na- tional champions, and went to Australia in the span of eight months— just getting this group of almost new singers, becoming great friends, working towards several goals, at- taining each one and capping it off that way. Kris: " California Monthly " did an inter- view with some of the alumns asking that kind of question. This one guy, Ron Mester, Class of 8 , said this [reads from article], " It changed my life, but I couldn ' t tell you how. I was very active on camp us in every way but there was nothing I enjoyed more than the Octet. When we were singing, there was such an incredible release. When I had a bad week at school, there were still these points in the week that were uplift- ing. The Octet was pure joy. I still get that feeling when I go to the reunion once a year with the guys.

The- OLiit may r :k Ut- a CD next ear ■ Focus 101 PI LI PI N O CULTURE We are ' mgc y its name alone, one would expect to learn about Filipino culture from a Filipino Cultural Night, or PCN, as it is endearingly called. For many who participate, the initial intrigue is to learn more about their Filipino culture through the captured move- ments of dance and the recorded echoes of music that come from the country of their parent ' s origin. But that is only the beginning. One of the longest running cultural nights on campus, begun in 1976, the Filipino American Allianc es ' s (PAA) annual cultural night is also one of the longest running Filipino collegiate cultural nights in the nation. This year, over 1= 0 participants wore o costumes in 19 different dances. Dozens of practices, several full cast rehearsals and hundreds of hours had preceded the performance night in front of 2000 people in Zellerbach Hall. " Tagasalaysay, " which in English means " storyteller " {mzj.i indi- cates plural), was the theme of the show, which is written, directed, promoted, performed and coordinated by students with help from a handiul oi alumni and outside community groups that assist with props and choreography. As cultural night coordinator, fourth-year English major Frank Lozier eloquently wrote in his welcome statement in the program, " Culture is fluid and cannot be grasped. It is not enough to encapsu- Tagasalaysay late any culture into a single collection of dances or tales because it is a process. " He »oes on to write, " we. retell [our stories] from 3ur cultural perspectives as P F ' ' Philip(p)inos in America. " As he typographically alludes to the vari- 3US ways of spelling Filipino, he also implies that there are -arious ways of being or inter- preting what it is to be Filipino. rhe Culture of Culture Night PCN in and of itself is also an evolution af Filipino culture that has been popularized by Filipino-American college students, since many Filipinos in the Philippines know little about the cultures of the other areas within the country. He adds, " I think PCN ' s are a Filipino-American thing. Even though people look at it as Philippine culture, I see it as sxperiencing Filipino-American culture. " A ::hoir sang both the Philippine and American national anthems before the performance. The dances of the Philippines reflect di- verse peoples from the years of Spanish and American colonization. Each of these influ- ences are categorized into suites. Generally these suites are: Spanish, often performed in ballroom settings; Barrio, reflecting rural farm- ing or fishing life; Mountain and or Tribal, from the various indigenous communities throughout the islands; and Muslim, dances from the predominantly Muslim southern Philippines. The 22nd annual PCN, held on April ig, also included an American suite with hip- hop and swing dance routines that reflect the history and lifestyle of Filipinos in America. A play or skit moves the show along and carries the theme or message for the night The skit can be anything from a love triangle drama to comedy, but it always explores is- sues of identity, culture, and community from a Filipino perspective. This year ' s skit, directed by Junior Julie Munsayac, asked what all Filipino Cultural Nights try to answer, " What is Filipino cu ture? " The central character was a Cal fresh- man named Alex Ramos, played by Cal sopho- more Ryan Morales, who is tasked to find the answer. Along the way he asks a number of Filipinos, most of whom are caricatures from the cast ' s own families and lives. They in- clude his hip-hop wanna-be filmmaker cousin PJ Ramos, played by senior Marco Jastillana; cultural night star Celestina Alvarez, played by senior Christie de Leon; and his karaoke singing Tito (Uncle) Boy, played by Daryl Dallera, and loving Lola (grandmother) played by sophomore English major Chris Rivera. The Basic Moves In the fall, students begin learnmg PCN basics taught by veteran performers in weekly weekend morning sessions, each of which highlights a different suite. Although most of the performers are of Filipino descent, PCN, in its goal to share the Filipino culture with all people, is open to anyone willing to put in STORY MICHELLE BAUTISTA PHOTOS RHETT V A LINO PASCUAL ' mga Tagasalaysay ' the time and effort. After basics, the tryouts hegin for various solo or specialized parts. Often the most cov- eted of these is that of performing Tinikling, the most recognized and national dance of the Philippines. The dance requires stamina, coordination, and a lack of fear as the dancers must step in and out of rapidly clapping bamboo sticks in sync. In the spring, performers practice for tv o to three hours per week for seven to eight weeks for each dance. For people in more than one dance, these hours are doubled or tripled. Approximately four to six weeks prior to the night, full cast rehearsals are added to the schedule, usually twice a week in the evening, sometimes lasting until lo or ii p.m. On weekends, full dress run-throughs, about three to four hours in length, are held. By this point, performers struggle in balancing PCN and schoolwork. Alvin Teodoro, a fourth- year student in molecular and cell biology, had to " Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. School alv ays came first — well, most of the time. " The students who bring PCN together reflect the diversity of the Filipino popula- tion. Some students come from areas of high Filipino concentration: Daly City, Vallejo, Long Beach, Los Angeles or San Diego. Others come from suburban areas where they may have been the only Filipino family on the block. For most, the dances and the music of PCN are a new experience they can ' t find back home. " I ' m from Oxnard, Even though there are a lot of Filipinos there because it ' s a Navy town, they don ' t have a lot of [Philippine] folk dance groups, " said Mamerto Estepa, a third-year civil engineering major Like Estepa, many performers on stage v ere audience members the previous year. " When I watched it my freshman year, I just thought everyone was having a lot of fun and I wanted to be a part of it. " Not everyone needs to be a dancer, singer, or actor. Others are stage hands, promoters, photographers, or administrators who man- age schedules, practice dates, and mone- However, it all comes down to the cultur; coordinator of PAA to keep the group i focus. Frank Lozier, this year ' s PCN coordinj tor, provided most of the vision for the sho and collaborated with the skit, music, an choir directors. " Frank ' s vision was to hav students reconsider what is culture and whs their culture was, " said Rivadelo. " He spent lot of time listening to what their needs were. Thirty minutes before the show, the cas and crew congregated in a small, stuffy roor several flights below the Zellerbach stagt Most were in full costume, while others irono costumes, some helped put on makeup c fixed hair. Frank gathered their attention on last time. " If ya ' ll can hear me, clap once, " he sai( as a thunderous clap emerged in unison fror over oo hands. The moment was finally here. There wa nothing left to do.

" When it came time, I just straight brok down and cried because that was the happi est moment. This was the culmination of th entire year I don ' t remember what I said, Lozier recalled, " I just released all the emo tions that I had over the year. But it wa totally out of happiness. It was like 150 peopL watching me bawl, but I felt a lot of love an( support. This was what it was all about. " Community Connection PCN is not just a performance, it ' s a commu nity event. The night draws together family friends, alumni, and students from other cam puses. For those in and around PCN, April anc May are fondly known as " PCN season. ' Various student groups coordinate road trip; to attend other PCNs hoping to garner idea: on dances and skits. As 1997-1998 PAA co chairs Matthew Esparrago and Sarah Rivadelc gave their opening address to the audience they included the traditional " shout-out " tc .ill the attending college campuses.

Before and after the show or uring intermission, groups of them gather to catch up or :member their PCN performing years. For recent graduates, it lay he their first chance to watch the show from the audience ' s oint of view. Many alumni feel a connection to PCN that is ifficult to explain. ,r . . ozier describes the connection this way, " It ' s like power. The power to create something and develop something and let 2000 people watch your creation. It ' s the power to be heard and to be seen. " Because PCN captures the attention of so many people, it as become an ideal venue to present other pressing issues and jncerns facing students. This year, Jane Dulugdugan, chair of the Educational Issues bmmittee of PAA, also known as POWER (Pilipinos Orga- ized to Work for Educational Rights) and another student idressed the audience regarding the declining admissions of ilipinos at Cal. Filipinos were removed from affirmative ae- on admissions guidelines in 1993. As a result, the population f Filipino students has declined from over a thousand stu- ents in the late 1980 ' s to around 550 in the mid ' 1990 ' s. PCN ' s o v take on greater significance than just sharing culture, hird-year psychology major Matthew Esparrago said, " PCN merely a demonstration of our continuing existence and ruggle as Pilipino American college students. But if we do not jntinue to succeed academically, then we will not be here ng enough to stage this demonstration. " For most people, college is the time id place to explore and rebuild personal [entities whether political, social, or pro- issional. In this case, cultural night is a me and place to explore and rebuild a ersonal identity based on culture. " PCN ' s are not only opportunities to lare a small segment of our culture, but a jhicle for openly expressing and demon- rating both pride and ownership of our lentities as Pilipino Americans, " said sparrago. As cultural lines shift and meld, cul- iral nights of all kinds are moments when .1 of us gain insight and beginnings in this ew formation of an American identity ne step at a time. ■ Ifs the power to be heard and to be seen.

TOP RIGHT Team members prepare to test ride their latest project, Duo Rapidus, a back-to-back, recumbent-style tandem bicycle expected to break speeds of 70 miles per hour. BOTTOM FAR LEFT The team spends much of its efforts on the fairing, the aerodynamic shell that fits over the bike.

RIGHT Duo Rapidus gets taken on a ride at Richmond Field Station, an abandoned military base where the team ' s makeshift lab makes its home. GOING THE GROUP OF 15 VOLUNTEER STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE Col lege of Engineering have been given a special opportunity to apply their newfound engineering skills to the real world problem of I transportation. The challenge— testing the maximum limits of ' speed at which a person can travel on human power alone through the design of highly specialized, aerodynamic, and ultra light vehicles. Born out of students ' desires for hands on experience, the UC Berkeley Human Powered Vehicle team project began over a decade ago and the incomplete remains of the team ' s first attempted vehicle, a carbon fiber tricycle, still hangs in their current workspace, serving as a reminder of just how far the team has come. Organized in 1986, the team ' s initial efforts at producing its first vehicle, a carbon liber and aluminum tricycle, proved unsuccessful It was not until igSg, vith none of the team ' s original members around, that the team manage ' , to produce its first competitive vehicle named Concept Z, a bicycle con idling of a carbon fiber and aluminum h.imc with a 20-inch front wheel and 2; inch rear, covered by a sleek lairinj made of a Kevlar epoxy composite. In the spring of 1990, the com pleted Concept Z was raced for the first time at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) national collegiate competition, placini first in design, the sprint, and overall categories. hi the fall season of the following year, work began on an im proved version of Concept Z named Z ' (pronounced Z prime.) Thi vehicle ' s Iroiii wheel was downsized to a 1— inch (in order to savi space), and a new, lighter, stiffer frame was built. The following year the team again placed first in the sprint and overall competitions. Team director, Eric Anderssen, remarking on the team ' s exhaustivi construction efforts, says, " it was so great to see this thing that we hat finished the night before sail past |the current record holder] righ before the finish line " Most crucial to the team ' s win was an aerodyn.unicillv optimize j lairing, constructed from carbon fiber, ,1 stiller material tm ioe lyiH HtjM r,P(iwEitfrjVEHictf originally used Kevlar. The team spends much of its efforts on the fairing the vehicle ' s carbon fiber shell which optimizes the bike ' s speed by reducing wind- drag. Members start by building a mini-master fairing mold out of foam and laying fiber glass and epoxy on the outer surface. Once this hard surface is sanded perfectly smooth, the master mold is used to make a final carbon fiber fairing shape which is then tested in a wind-tun- nel on campus to determine the most aerodynamic shape for the vehicle. With proven success in the national collegiate competition, the team decided to enter the International Human Powered Speed Challenge in August of 1991. Pitted head-to-head against the top HPV racers in the world, the team placed third overall while also capturing its first world record in the quarter- mile drag race. Prime also set the 00-meter sprint world record on the same speed run The team left the competition with three world records, dreaming about how many more it could achieve, and how it could design a vehicle that would go even f ister Encouraged by its blossoming success and experience, the team has since been working in earnest on its next vehicle. Though Z " remains one in a handful of collegiate vehicle to exceed speeds of 60 miles per hour, the team ' s new project, in the quest for achieving higher speeds, is expected to break speeds of 70 miles per hour The new vehicle, named Duo Rapidus, is a revolutionary recum- bent style tandem bike design in which the riders are seated back-to- back. By arranging the riders in this fashion, the bike remains as low as a single-person vehicle and is only 40 percent longer, keeping crosswind interference at a minimum. Placing the riders in a recum- bent position allows them to also maximize their output by using a more compact, two-wheel drive system, with each rider powering his respective v heel, a smaller aerodynamic shell, and a shorter overall height. Since the design of Duo Rapidus is so nev , the team decided to create a prototype of the vehicle that would allow testing and ma- nipulation of its design characteristics to make for the fastest vehicle possible. The team plans to officially race their new project next April when the team hosts the American Society of Mechanical Engineers national competition. The design, construction, testing, and racing of the vehicle re- quires a large amount of financial support. CalHPV has received much of its support from the College of Engineering as well as both DISTANCE At the 1992 ASME competition, Z ' placed the team first in the sign, sprint, and overall competitions for the third year in a row, rning into a winning streak that has lasted six consecutive years. Z ' n fact, has proved one of the most successful human powered hides ever designed. In addition to continuing Cal ' s legacy at the ASME competitions, set new standards for collegiate and world competition at the 1993 uman Powered Vehicle Speed Challenge, an invitational open only teams that had achieved speeds of over 50 miles per hour Racing 1 the high plains of Colorado, a Cal Ph. D. Student named Mike ime became the fastest collegiate rider in the world, reaching a top leed of 61.2 miles per hour — a record which remains unbeaten. Although the 61 mph performance fell short of Prime and the am ' s hopes, he kept everything in perspective saying, " Hey, I ' m ippy - I beat 60 mph. I mean, ho ' w. ' many guys have broken 60? Ten? fteen? It ' s pretty cool to be one of them. " To add to his elation. the engineering and bicycle industries with this year ' s sponsors in- cluding Chevron, General Electric, Velocity, and Continental Tires contributing to a $1 ,000 budget. Since each generation of vehicles that has taken form from the program has taken leading technology to the edge, it has proved a favorably symbiotc relationship that many companies are eager to fund. Overall, the team has won a number of first place titles including 3 time Collegiate National Champions Overall (1990-1992), 6 time Collegiate National Top Speed Champions (1989-1994), and gold med- als in the quarter-mile drag, 25 mile road race, 1 hour time trial, and women ' s 200 meter sprint at the International Human Powered Speed Challenge in 1994. In addition, the team has broken six world records including the men ' s and women ' s 600-meter sprints, the 500-meter sprint, and in 1992, the team beat its ' own 1991 world record in the quarter-mile drag. Focus 107 JOHN SPARKMAN FTER THIS COUNTRY-SINGING HAIR- dresser from Houston graduates in rhetoric, he ' ll return to Texas and learn how to ride horses and play guitar while visiting his grandmother. Then John Sparkman plans to move to Nashville next year to launch his music career as a singer-songwriter. Despite not playing any musical instru- ments, John writes hundreds of lyrics and never forgets one. But these aren ' t ordinary songs. Take the lines " Who knows the secrets of our souls? The world, who ' s in control? I don ' t think there ' s much difference in our beliefs " set to twang. Okay, a rarefied twang, twinged with soul and tweaked with a search for the Truth. And John makes it work -with a surpris- ingly wide ranging, beautiful bass voice, which he avoided training in high school, thinking " it v ould threaten his masculinity. " While studying music and taking voice lessons at Foothill Junior College in Los Al- tos, he heard Cal ' s gospel choir. That inspira- tional performance and a thirst for rhetoric (to enhance the power and artistry of words in his songs) drew him to Cal. John wants to make everyone — any race, religion, culture, or lifestyle, smile— and maybe even break through racial divisions in our society. Influenced by artists like Sam Cook, Marvin Gaye, and R. Kelly, John wrote " Black Boots, White Hat, " and created his own style called " country soul, " which combines the vibrant, dynamic, and rhythmic elements of R B and rap with country. The style ends what John calls the " oppression " of a country western style that is set against multi- culturalism and set on keeping white men ' s music free from the influence of other ethnic groups ' styles or cultures. John believes that by " bringing the music together, we can bring the people together " John wrote " What are You Thinking: A Phenomenological Investigation " for a rheto- ric class. " We put the truth in language through religious texts, but language doesn ' t always illuminate the truth, " he says. " What ' s inside us drives us to the truth that all that matters is life and love.

Cognitive Country I An interview with John Sparkman Tell us some of your history. I got out of high school and went straight to the University of Houston. I enjoyed playing basketball more than I liked going to class, so I didn ' t do too hot there. Then I worked for a while. My uncle always said, " Boy, get a trade. " And one day I was watching TV and a commercial came on for beauty school. So the next thing you know I signed up for beauty school. I worked for hairdresser for a while, then I went to LA. ii ' 87. I thought I might want to he an actor. never once went out to try to be an extra. Si I left in nine months, and got another jol cutting hair in Texas Then I messed up m " back when I 22 ,md I had to sit aroun for a while. So, it ' s just been lots of difleren stuff. Finally I ' m here in Berkeley. Sometimes I wish I could have done thi earlier, and maybe I would ha ' e been younge 108 My songs are like my babies, man. I work on them a long time. I LIVE WITH THEM. and already made, but no. The way it ' s turned out has been the way it should have been. I ' ve got advice from the old ladies in beauty school. I ' ve got the lesson I learned from my back— the humility, the sorrow, the pain. If I hadn ' t hurt my back, I wouldn ' t have gone to college. I think going to Berkeley and taking all this time, and taking that extra year, it ' s paid off My songs are rich because of this school and studying rhetoric. I had potential, but my use of meta- phors has really strengthened. I ' ve taken my time, and it ' s made all the difference. I just now feel like I ' m ready, you know? And that is just a re- cent phenomenon. Any concrete plans? My plan is to go to Hous- ton this summer for six months. I wish I had more time, hut I ' m 30 years old, you know? I vant to get out there, and I want to hurry, so after six months of Houston, Nashville in ' 99 is the plan. However, even when I get there, I still want to take my time. Not rush into anything. For one, I don ' t want to sign a manager. I want to get face to face with Tony Brown- he ' s a big producer. I ' ll take my time in Nash- ville. I ' d like to sing some background vocals. But be- fore I do that, most likely, I will try to sing demos for publishers. The publishing houses want you to sing their ongs. Nashville songs, you know? I need to ell some songs to get in there, and be a part )f Nashville. I took voice lessons from lashville ' s Voice Team— Clint Black ' s voice eacher— back at Houston in between semes- ers here at Cal. So I ' ll sing some demos, lopefully In that way, the publishing house vill have a songwriter, and then I ' ll have a ;ong. They ' ll hire a hand and a singer, and :hey ' ll make the demo. And they ' ll take that :o a producer or whoever they ' re trying to pitch the song to. A lot of times, the singer will try to pitch the demo to a certain singer, sing their style, you know? So I ' ll be doing that, which is very nice ' cuz it will get money in my pocket. Maybe, six months after I get there, I ' ll cut a single. My plan is to cut three singles- get those first two singles out and get my name known. I would like to debut my third single on TV. It is real hard to get a top-ten single these days, because it ' s hard to get all the markets playing the song at the same time, so that you ' re number-one at that time. So I thought the way to do that is to get on TV and then release it. Then the plans are to tour in the next ten years. ' m also writing a play called Shades of Mauve, which is a play about gender and sexuality. So, at some point, I ' d like to do my play in New York or something, you know? It is set in a hair salon. It ' s like a soap opera, you know? So Shades of Mauve is all about What is a man? " What is a woman? Is the body it? This guy ' s got high testosterone, he ' s got low testosterone. What ' s going on here? He ' s violent, he ' s not. Sometimes it ' s chemi- cal, sometimes it ' s cultural. So I explore those ideas and some theoretical stuff It ' s going to be fun. And I ' ve got some movies in mind. Also I ' d like to maybe do very artistic projects. And then maybe politics, but I don ' t know. I don ' t know if I want the heartache. Man, Bill Clinton got old fast. I ' m sure it ' ll kill you, you know? What you can do with a name? Everyone knows Garth Brooks. But the real power— no one knows the names of the guys who got the real power. And power corrupts —I ' m afraid of that too. And then one day I would like to go back to school and study neurobiology and dissect brains down in my cellar, or something, and try to find the cure for this or that. What ' s going on with all the firing synapses up in the brain? That ' s a fun thing for me— brains, biochemistry, the brain and it ' s behavior. Does a human being really have free will, or are they chemically self- controlled? And then eventually I would like to be a grandfather— that would be the ulti- mate. Then you can sit back and say " Man, I did, or I didn ' t do it, but at least it ' s over. " So let me leave y ' all with a song, if you don ' t mind. I want to sing " You and Me and a Little Country Philosophy. " I wrote this for John Searle ' s class. There ' s one line in par- ticular that you ' re like, well, that ' s the rheto- ric line. It ' s not just my idea, it ' s guys like Joseph Campbell, who had the same ideas. I read him after I had a lot of my ideas, and it ' s neat to find out that hey, other people think like me. So it goes: " Who knows the secrets of our souls? The world, who ' s in control? I don ' t think there ' s much difference in our beliefs. What gets in the way is the language we speak. So if we can agree on a few terms, then maybe, love might take it ' s turn. You see, life and love are both a great big mystery. But baby, it ' s magic to me. And as long as there ' s magic in the sky, I ' ll be by your side. ' Cuz I don ' t think we ' ll agree too soon, who hung the moon. But that ' s all country philosophy. But here ' s one more t hing I believe: I ' m always thinking of you, therefore, I love you, it ' s plain to see. " I look up out into the stars, and won- der, where we are? It ' s been explained in a million different ways. Who ' s right, who ' s wrong, who ' s to say? Back in school, I didn ' t learn much astronomy, but that single star, well, that ' s you and me. As long as there ' s magic in the sky, I ' ll be by your side. ' Cuz I don ' t think we ' ll agree too soon who hung the moon. But that ' s all country philosophy. But here ' s one more thing I believe: I ' m always thinking of you, therefore, I love you, it ' s plain to see. " I don ' t claim to know the secrets of the universe, but I think I have a clue. It ' s got something to do with livin ' and lovin, baby, both of which I would like to do. With you, as long as there ' s magic in the sky, I ' ll be by your side. ' Cuz I don ' t think we ' ll agree too soon who hung that moon. But that ' s a lot of country philosophy. But here ' s one more thing I believe: I ' m always thinking of you, therefore, I love you, it ' s plain to see. " I stand behind the ideas, and the ideas are not mine I don ' t take credit for them or even for the art, you know? I hear singing in my head! I write it down. I don ' t sit there and see all the intricate workings, you know? It is just put all together and my own conscious mind spits it out, and all the sudden I got some- thing that sounds good. It ' s not of me. I mean, it ' s something deep inside me. It ' s just cul- tural knowledge, you know?

The children are stand- ing in their dirty tennis shoes and dusty sweatpants, some smudged -with tie-dye or clay, looking at the sky Shining 300 flashlights into the treetops amid the starry night, they sing " Hail to Cali- fornia. " Encircling the fire with linked arms are families and 40 college students, the majority of them having ties with UC Berkeley. The students have just fin- ished introducing themselves with a med- ley of guitar music, songs, and skits. Some may spend nine months of the year study- ing at one of the other UC campuses — Davis, Santa Barbara, or even L.A.— but during the summer, they are an integral part of a haven known simply as " The Lair. " These students bear the unmistakable marks of a summer spent at the UC Alumni Association ' s sole money making organization. Working in the dust and pine needles, up to their elbows in art activities, v ith sport blisters on their hands from friendly softball games against the campers, they sometimes speak in hoarse voices from singing and directing large groups of kids. Their cheeks are pink from sunny hikes and cool nights, when they sleep under the stars in the rickety lofts of wooden tents. Serving as both leaders and teachers, the staff of 40 is in charge of the family camp. Nearly three hours from the Bay Area nestled next to Pinecrest lake near small towns with names such as " Confi- dence, " " Sugar Pine, " and " Strawberry " the Lair makes its home among rolling hills of forests and sharp granite peaks in the Southern Sierra. Back in 1948, Robert Sibley the first execu- tive director of the Alumni Association, envisioned an alumni- owned summer camp and opened the Lair at Mt. Shasta. How- ever, in 1949, a more convenient site v as found in the southern Sierra at Pinecrest, The second executive director, Stan McCdfrey then hired Mike Koll to develop the current Lair program. Camp Gold opened first of the three camps with the capacity to entertain 120 campers per week, soon growing to accommodate 250 participants until Koll and his staff could not take all who wanted to come. Thus Camp Blue, the adjacent second camp, opened a few hundred yards away over the hill in 1957. Both the Blue and Gold c.inips have since flourished alongside one an other sharing Gold ' s softball field as well as the Teen Lodge and the Vista Lodge to allow campers from both camps to mingle while also producing a sporting rivalry. ABOVE Several Lair campers sing songs around the campfire in the Saturday night sing-along. RIGHT Camp Blue staffers perform their " LairStory " skit (inspired by the movie Toy Story) in their Friday night Farewell Show. 110 TAIN H I H Last year, the Alumni Association pur- chased the third camp in the area, Pinebrook, which now, in its second year of business, is geared towards hosting group organizations such as reUgious and scout- ing groups as opposed to famihes like at Blue and Gold. Today, with over loo staff members at three camps the Lair accom- modates 1800 families for ij weeks of the summer. Currently at the helm of this popular organization is Ray Bosch, director of the Lair for the past 14 years and a former Lair staffer himself Standing a distinguished 6 feet-6 inches, Bosch makes a noticable pres- ence both at the camps and at the Alumni House, where he works during the re- mainder of the year. For most campers and staff, Bosch has become synonymous with the Lair, as he spends the entire summer living in a house located between the two camps, ensuring that all three programs run smoothly. ( — osch understands the extensive history behind the Lair. He ex- plains, " the Lair is built on tradi- tion. Bingo on Monday nights, guest speakers on Sunday and Tues- day nights, and the famous " FcU-ewell Camp- fire " on Friday nights. Campers who miss a few years, or, for that matter, a few decades, return and say that " nothing has changed. " Campers come to expect their " bug juice " (Lair term for Kool-Aid) as they are greeted upon arrival by the staff as much as their " hearty barbecue lunch " which is sei-ved family style on Sunday aftemoon just before the camper versus staff inneitube water polo game. Sound old-fashioned or silly? It ' s what makes the Lair so popular. " We continue to have long waiting lists of those folks who would like to experience the ' fabled ' Lair, " says Bosch. " I have received many repons from families saying, ' we would have taken [the kids] to Hawaii, but they wanted to come back to the Lair. " ' Many families are eager to return each year because of the strong friendships they form with other families who camp during the same particular week. An existing Lair phenomenon is the fact that campers are very particular and even possessive about which week they attend. " I became such good friends with all the families from eighth week that we could never go a different week or I ' d miss my yearly visit, " says MoUie Yaley, a lifetime Lair camper and student i Both Paul HerzolT Focus 111 v.- ■ ' ' - X ■ - ■..

" - Lair Director Ray Bosch at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Being on staff for a couple of years makes it easier to recognize weeks as having different personali- ties, " says Cal graduate Amy Sarver. " Some weeks are really into the talent show, others compete like animals in water polo and Softball. " Families often find that the week goes hy so quickly that soon they are soon " watering the dust " (about the only way to make the mountain habitat look fresh in the middle of summer) on Saturday morning, helping the staff prepare for the next round of campers who will arrive that day utside of the summer months, Bosch mterviews and hires student staff from all UC campuses (and occasionally a few " outsiders " — students who camped at the Lair growing up but attend college outside the UC system). As Bosch says, " there is a special University of California ' Lair spirit ' that tran- scends all of the campuses. " There are practical reasons as well. With Berkeley ' s change back to the semester system in 1983, I osch says that " it has been helpful to have Aggies and Gauchos available to finish the season " when Cal staffers head back to schiiol. The .siudcnt staff is a big reason the Lair is so popular for employees and campers alike. " The staff is ven important to the camper experience, " Bosch says. " The staffers be come important role models to the children they supervise. It i important that they be outgoing and friendly. " Many former kid campers interview to work as staffers and ii turn later bring their families, something that Bosch refers to as " thi Lair snowball effect. " Some families, especially those who live near Berkeley, have a habi of " adopting " Lair staffers and keeping in touch with them throughou the school year. " I always look forward to seeing Lair families a football games, " says UC Davis grad and ' eteran staffer Lara Abbott Children and adults look forward to the Lair each summer to see, a; Lair camper Bonnie Davis puts it, " if any of our favorites hav( returned. " Staffers compete for a variety of jobs in one of three crew including dining hall, maintenance, and the " kub korral " (childcan ages 2-4), which are usually reserved for new or " rookie " staffers, a: well as directorship positions which oversee different children ' s agi groups, athletics, art, .uiJ hiking. 112 ii - - -■.% ' ' j m j- ■ Lair hosts 1 800 families in the sum- r.

Scott Fausel, a Cal ? junior and last summer ' s 8- r and 9 ' year-old director at Camp Gold, keeps busy with as many as 4(1 kids in his age group some weeks. A day with the 8 ' s and g ' s (Wednesday, to be exact) for Fausel begins with a hike to nearby Pinecrest lake at 9:45 a.m. for paddleboating with the kids until noon, and then lunch on the beach until 1 p.m. From 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., rybody gathers for cookie decorating and skit practice for the evening ' s -iper talent show in the dining hall. " Then I serve dinner, " Fausel says, iwaiian chicken. It ' s nice to talk to some adults after being around the ,s all day " Less than an hour after sei-ving is finished, Fausel heads to stage to help his 8 ' s and g ' s perform their skit.

The Thurs- day night lineup features the staff singing show containing traditional camp songs (John Denver and the like), as well as group participation songs and performances with keyboards, drum sets, banjos, harmoni- cas, violins, and juice harps— even garbage cans, pot bellies, and spoons are played now and then Come Friday the staff bids farewell with a final show which is always a musical spinoff from a popular movie or play such as " 007 at the Lair.

Bitter cold and tired, they found excitement in the challenges nature had to offer, the location ' s abundant sunshine, and the ladybugs that covered their cups and sleeping bags. They also enjoyed the mischief of their companions, whose antics included doing hand- stands on mountain peaks and drinking whiskey mixed with Jello crystals. The six-day trip ended on Sunday, and they returned to Berkeley refreshed. Nearing its 50th anniver- sary as a cam- pus student organization, the Cal Hik- ing and Out- door Society, Berkeley ' s in- formal out- door recre- ation club, continues to pursue adventure and amusement in the wilderness in the form of rock climbing, back- packing, biking, and skiing. Being an informal club distinguishes CHAOS from other campus adventure groups, as members can organize their own trips and go anywhere, even as fir as Utah and Mexico. Jenn Dieges, a campus employee working at the Survey Research Center, occasionally plans trips to Point Reyes v ith her fellow friends in CHAOS. Being able to plan a trip and lead it gives her a sense of responsibility and leadership that an informal group can provide. " I have been responsible for the gear that we lend out, and I have taken Wilderness First Aid and CPR courses so that I might be better prepared to lead and organize trips. That iorced me to learn a lot about everything, including outdoor gear, map-read- ing skills, the permit system of the various parks, and organizing people with different [hiking] skills, " said Dieges. " Organizing a trip can be as easy as announcing that we want to go on a day hike to Point Reyes and are looking for other interested walkers. It can also be as complicated as making sure of the experience levels of the people who want to come on the more difficult trips and what equipment they have, with the possibility of bringing a car. " As a student club that also explores the Bay Area, CHAOS is able to attract many foreign students from campus to participate in its activities. Having many foreign students in their organization brings a dynamic, multicultural element to its informality. " Many of our members are international students and others who have arrived in the Bay Area. For this reason, they know few people and want to meet people to do trips with, and they tend to be involved in the club for the duration of their stay. For ex- ample, exchange students v ho have been involved in outdoors activities in their home countries often join for their years in Berkeley. These people often leave, which makes us sad, but there have been CHAOS trips in Sweden, Germany, South America, and Peru and so past members can stay in touch with each other, " said Madeleine Schultz, a third- year graduate majoring in chemistry. Because members of CHAOS share such an avid interest in the wilderness with each other, they feel free to be creative in their planning. Each year, for the past ten years, the group has held what it calls the " Gourmet Trip. " It is the one trip where all the members are free to bring personal luxury items along, like microwaves, guitars, and formal clothing to the beach. Last year, 40 people attended the trip at Point Reyes, dancing to Irish music and eating quail ' s eggs, salmon, and ice cream. Traditionally, members each year try to outdo the previous " Gourmet Trip. " This year, members set up a portable hot tub, which was built from a stove heated by a car radiator. This was a small challenge as many CHAOS members are engineers. Members enjoyed a view of the sunset while in the warm, bubbling water of the portable hot tub on the beach. As CHAOS continues to grow as a student orga- nization and explore new places for adventure, mem- bers (ind the greatest satisfaction in knowing each other and making friends, even going to clubs and movies together However, the commonality they share will sti ll always be their lo ' c of nature. Dieges said, " I have been glad to have the oppor- tunity to lead beginner and all-women trips through CHAOS. I find nothing more rewarding than intro- ducing the outdoors to other people, showing them how easy it is to do arious activities such as rock climbing or backpacking and getting them as ad- dicted to nature as I am " 120 On July 2nd, Suzanne L,ppen.

" pours over the 25-page script and psy- J ches herself up for her intervie v with the funk- ' jazz band " Kahlua and Cream. " As she nervously J flips through the mass of video and audio direc- - tions on the script, Stephen Wendel, the executive director, quickly removes the props from the previous local show, including glossy plastic plants. He then urges some of the KLTV creuonembers to focus the stage lights on the star attractions, who are setting up their musical equipment. As soon as the lights begin to beam on the five-piece band, crewmembers in the control room capture the band ' s radiant images from the studio cameras onto tape. With a thumbs-up from Erin Mulcone, the stage director, KLTV is now ready to air this week ' s offering of " Spectrum, " a student-run variety program featuring East Bay community events, issues, and entertainment. This frantic night in the studio represents the culmi- nation of two years of hard work. KLTV began as a De- Cal course in video media training in 1996, headed by Shia Levitt and Trina ' Washington, both Cal students. Their vision of beginning a student-run, video-media campus organization has expanded into a full-fledged operation, utilizing the free training and access offered by local Berkeley cable station, channel 26. In the past, student -created programs have included coverage and discussion of topics such as the Daily Cal vs. Heuristic Squelch debate, abortion, drinking and fraternities. Bay Area Wicca witchcraft, and investment. Back in the studio, the crewmembers juggle various jobs as the band performs, including directing cameras onto a particular soloist and reducing feedback among the instruments through the audio mixing board. Stephanie Chen, the floor manager, furiously scribbles prompts on a cue board, warning the band members with messages to not look into the cameras and to stop playing after five minutes. Despite the breakneck pace, the host keeps a cool rapport as she interviews the guests after their performance. After the 15-minute segment featuring the band con- cludes, crewmembers alternate their next roles between the control room and the stage. In 15 minutes, they must rearrange the set by replacing the musical equipment with chairs for the second segment, featuring an in- depth intervie v with the cast of a local Asian-American sitcom, " California Roles, " which also airs on KLTV Mandy Kaplan, who worked on graphic titles on the first program, swaps positions with Petieoich to host the second half Such swapping of production roles allows students to get hands-on training in the various techni- cal aspects of the studio as well as hosting a show. However, the work can become frustrating when it comes to producing a tight program. Ido Masai gets advice from Erin Mulcone. As Diana Rodrieguez, executive director and backdrop coordinator notes, " We ' re so into our crev work, it ' s hard to pay attention to the show and we get distracted. " The hands-on training and nerve-wracking experiences that go into producing television programs help some students acquire the skills needed for their future careers. " At first, it was only a hobby; it was fun for me. Now, it motivates me, and KLTV helps me get the experience to go into the television broadcasting field, " says Rodrieguez. Aside from technical experi- ence, students learn that a good portion of televi- sion broadcasting deals v.ith budget restraints. Most of the props, like plants and wallpa- per for " Spec- trum, " are donated from local businesses. The staff also faces time restraints as host of " The Good Side, " Connie Chung cites. Chung ' s show is a newsmagazine that emphasizes uplifting and positive stories around the community. " In one interview for our bone marrovs story, a patient ' s fither could not come in at the last minute, so we had to do his interview- over the phone, " recalls Chung. " Unexpectedly, this added variety to the show because we [started doing] interviews on stage as well as on the phone. It was a relief that the father still had a chance to speak on the show. " When the last segment of the night ' s programs finishes, crewmembers store away the Super VHS recordings for future re-editing and then call it a night. They replace moved furniture back onto the stage and engage in small talk vwth the guests, thanking them for their participa- tion. With the segments finally over, some members look back on what they were able to do with the limited availability of borrowed equipment and hope for more ways to produce better programs. Despite securing an on-campus video editor, Levitt still hopes to gain more resources in the future. " Eventually, as outlined in our proposal, we would like to have our own cable station, three cameras, and an edit suite (chuckles). We also want to exchange our programs with student public-access producers from other states so we do not end up being sheltered in our own communities. It ' s all several years down the line, but why not think about it?

Mention of the word " formals " brings thoughts of individual chapter parties to most Greeks — almost every chapter on cam- pus holds their ov n. However, there are a few formal events that all Greeks can attend including The Greek Gala, Alpha Tau Omega ' s (ATO) Great Gatsby, and The Black and White Bali (also known as The Ace of Clubs Ball.) The first annual Greek Gala, sponsored by the College Panhellenic Association (CPA), the governing body for sororities, was held on Thursday, November 13 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. Proceeds were donated to the Berkeley Youth Alternative, an organization that provides underprivileged Berkeley community students access to summer camps and educational programs. CPA hoped that in sponsoring the all-Greek philanthropy event, it could help to set aside the adverse press that the greek community has received over the last few semesters due to hazing reports and incidents of neighbor complaints. " It went off well, especially as the first annual Greek Gala, and it was great that the proceeds went to charity, " said Gala-goer, Kelly Gascon. Great Gatsby, inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald ' s famed novel, is one of the more spectacular parties known to campus. Although the profits of Great Gatsby do not go to charity, it is the only formal that is open to everyone, even those not within the Greek community. Members of ATO go all out every year trying to simulate Jay Gatsby ' s famous party. Decora- tions include a eucalyptus covered stairway with red carpeting, two live bands, flowing champagne foun- rholn Alexis C.irci. tains, and were set off by a character Jay Gatsby without a date looking for his Daisy. A waterfall, complete with a live duck in the pond found at the bottom of the falls, added extravagance to the el- egance of the partiers dressed in formal ' 20 ' s evening attire. " The success is a result of the effort the mem- bers of the chapter put into the preparation and the money, " says Gatsby organizer. Miles Cotton. Mem- bers decorate the ATO house themselves, using their collective creativity. The cost of the extravaganza totaled nearly $4,000, including decorations, bartend- ers and a casino set-up. The palm plants placed at the entrance way cost $goo dollars alone to rent. Al- though not all the bids were sold, it was a fully attended party. One party-goer said, " It was a lot like Senior Prom, except with alcohol and much more glamour. " The 69th annual Black and White Ball, presented by Ace of Clubs, was held on Thursday, April 23 at The Velvet Lounge in San Francisco. With bids cost- ing $= 0 per couple, the proceeds benefitted the Susan G. Comen Breast Cancer Foundation. The sponsor- ing Ace of Clubs is an association made up of women from the five oldest sororities on campus including Kappa Alpha Theta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Phi and Pi Beta Phi. Only women from these five houses are allowed to buy bids to the black tie affair. With fake palm trees covered in leopard print, huge leather couches set against purple walls and a live rock band, the scene added a refresh- ing change from the usual feel of formal events. " Great Gatsby is much more of a costume party whereas Ace of Clubs is more of a special night and a special occasion You look for a formal dress instead of cigarette holders and boas, " said Susie Stevens, a member of Alpha Phi, who attended both Great Gatsby and Ace oi Clubs ■ Clettlng decked out ' O ' n style is hall the iun at Alpha Tau Omega ' s annual Great Ciatsby loniial. where leather boas, beaded headbands, llappcr dresses and Mark Chi Abo e: The Panhellenic As- sociation held its first annual Greek Gala charity event in November with proceeds going 10 the Berkeley Youth Alternative.

The policy requires that houses register parties ahead of time with the Berkeley Police Department, check decorations and house capacity limits with the Fire and Police Departments, provide food and nonalcoholic drinks, not serve hard alcohol, use drink tickets and wristbands, check identification at the bar, and have guests bring their own beer. Though these rules have been on the books for longer than some houses have been at Cal, seldom have parties been conducted in full compliance. The new call to this old policy was made after two alcohol related deaths occurred at MIT and Louisiana State University fraternities in the fill semester. The Interfraternity Council and the College Panhellenic Association, with the encouragement of the University and the city, responded by tightening enforce- ment through safety and self-monitoring, encouraging safer and more responsible parties. Sarah Nelson, Panhellenic ' s Vice President of External and member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, described the move as important, stating, " It ' s about being part of a community and being able to govern ourselves. " However, the adjustment to compliance has not been easy for the Greek system. The party rules require more paperwork, preparation, and planning than ever before, in an effort to curb the occurrence of spontaneous parties which can pose a risk. Dan Murphy, the president of Chi Psi Fraternity, says, " It isn ' t just the alcohol, it ' s also the decorations, the fire codes, and the capacity limits. You can ' t have big parties where you just pack ' em in any more. " Even with the obstacles and hassles, many Greeks see the rule enforcement as a positive necessity. Nelson reported that there has only been two neighbor complaints in the fall semester, which was a significant improvement from previous semesters. " The police department and the fire department are vei-y happy with the changes we have been making, " says Nelson, " The direction we are going [in] is a positive one. " 15 Pledges drink in a fellow Greek ' s dorm room. The Bring Your Own Booze and other al- cohol restriction policies, while an effective means of controlling sponta- neous parties, have little bearing in the dorms showing that alcohol is still readily available and acces- sible. Photo Grace Chang s a crowded area at an wearing wristbands hoi restrictions, i K Cod of Conduct At a time when the campus ' Greek system thought it had virtually eradicated incidents of hazing by educating chapters of the University ' s zero toler- ance policy through informative workshops, two publicized hazing reports within the past year have forced the system to reconsider its approach. The first publicized incident, originally reported last year, resulted in the Delta Sigma Phi house losing its charter this spring, while the second resulted in the suspen- sion of another fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon. In response, both the Interfraternity Council and the College Panhellenic Associa- tion, the respective governing bodies for campus fraternities and sororities, are struggling to devise a solution to this apparently unfleeting problem. In the spring of 1997, a Delta Sigma Phi pledge filed a report with the Berkeley police regarding a hazing incident involving physical and verbal abuse. The report was immediately for- warded to the University ' s Office of Student Conduct and the pledge was asked to give a full report to the University. As a result of the report, the fraternity was given the choice by the University of accepting sanctions irom both their national chap- ter and the University, or having the university revoke recogni- tion of Delta Sigma Phi on campus. " There were five pages of sanctions, with things like 50 hours of community service for each of us, taking out a half- page add in the Daily Cal apologizing for everything each fall semester for the next four years, five successful semesters of social probation, " says Delta Sigma Phi member, Paul Keith, " There was just too much lor us to realistically do. " The members were allowed to continue living in their chap- ter house, located on Warring Avenue, by the University through the spring semester but were asked to vacate by the landlord. None of the Fall ' 97 semester pledges were initiated into the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity. Instead, most were initiated into the Kappa Alpha fraternity which agreed to merge with Delta Sigma Phi. Because their national association did not revoke their charter. Delta Sigma Phi members who were initiated BY LEANNE TAYLOR before the incident were allowed to maintain their affiliation. However, the house is unable to initiate any new members as a result of the incident. As active member Elliot Lewis said, " Since we can ' t get any pledges, we can ' t have our own house. " The Sigma Phi Epsilon incident came just one day after two UCLA fraternity pledges were forced into the hospital due to hazing this April, sending a wave of alarm throughout campus Greek communities nationwide. At 2:30 a.m., on the morning of April 2, the day following the UCLA news, a freshman active member of Sigma Phi Epsilon was discovered with his feet and hands bound with plastic rope and chains in the back of a car on the corner of Durant and Piedmont, by U.C. Berkeley Police Officers. All handling of the matter immediately went to the Office of Student Conduct, with IPC and Panhellenic having no dealing in the matter. The incident was part of what fraternities call a " Pledge Sneak " , where pledges " kidnap " the active mem- bers. As a result, part of the University ' s response was an order that the house get rid of the " sneak " as a pledging activity. The house v as also put on social probation by both the University and its ' national governing chapter, which bars its ' hosting any parties. However, for those that see hazing as a cruel and juvenile ritual of passage, there are also those that believe that the practice encourages group unity. Grace Chang, a new initiate of one of the campus sororities recalls, " I was disappointed I wasn ' t hazed and I ' m mad that the Greek System gets all the press on hazing. It is a completely voluntary act that you put upon yourself Hazing allows cama- raderie in some instances and is not a totally negative thing, as long as you don ' t go overboard. " The natural question then becomes " What is ' overboard ' ? " UC Berkeley and the Education Code of California defines hazing as, " any method of initiation or preinitiation into a student organization or any pastime or amusement engaged in with respect to such an organization which causes, or is likely to cause, bodily danger, physical harm, or personal degradation 1 5 t C, R 1. L K s Phoio I Fawlowska or disgrace resulting in physical or mental harm, to any student or other person attending any school, community college, col- lege, university or other educational institution in [the state of California]. However, the term " hazing " does not include cus- tomary athletic events or other similar contests or competitions. Each executive member in every Greek chapter is made to know the statement, on hazing, which is read to members and posted in all chapter houses. Despite the efforts of IPC, Panhellenic, and other active members of the Greek Commu- nity to curtail hazing, it persists. Under this definition, any active making a pledge serenade a sorority is technically commiting an act of hazing though many would argue that the activity is harmless. Tom Durein, IPC advisor believes that, " Students don ' t perceive [hazing] as harmful or stop and think about it. In not Pledges from Sigma Phi Epsilon ' s Spring ' gS Pledge Class receive roses and instructions before ser- enading sororities. thinking about it, they aren ' t considering what it means to the chapter. They also have a ' We do it because we always have ' attitude. Being different isn ' t always popular. " The Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic can only do so much. " Our community hasn ' t been proactive but has responded when pressured, " says Panhellenic advisor Tina Barnett. The efforts of the two governing bodies to put a stop to hazing have centered around education with mandated workshops where all presidents and social chairs of individual chapters are trained to understand what is and is not considered acceptable behavior. " But the control of the Councils stops at the front door, " says Panhellenic Association President Krista Mitzel, " It is up to the chapter leaders and committees to put this knov ledge into effect to make a safer and more comfortable environment. " ■ Greeks 157 K In the Spirit o f Giving BY LEANNE TAYLOR JENNY MICHEL Greek participation in philanthropy activities proved on the rise this year, making both chapter and Greek community events increasingly productive all around. " More chapters participated, especially the fraterni- ties, " said Panhellenic President and member of Chi Omega, Krista Mitzel. Chapters still held their annual events, but they also pooled together to show community enthusiasm. Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity hosted their popular annual volleyball tournament, encouraging all Greek chapters to enter the contest. Proceeds were donated to the Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protec- tion, preservation and restoration of the worlds oceans, waves and beaches. Dozens of cheering spectators were attracted to the sand courts, where teams representing each chapter battled for the title. Pi Beta Phi sorority and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity emerged as the victors of the tournament, Sigma Alpha Epsilon member Rob Alsuler said of the successful event, " We had a great turnout, and everyone had a great time with so many different chapters [present]. " Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity also drew a strong level of Greek support in their annual " Bounce lor Beats " event ben- efitting the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Members raise money by asking for donations while bouncing balls on Sproul Plaza from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for an entire week. The event has become a fun tradition for the chapter because as Vice- President, Estevan Bonilla, states, " Just a little effort on everyone ' s part can really make a big difference. " Keeping the theme of community effort in mind, the largest of the all-Greek philanthropy events was coordinated by both the Interfraternity Council and the College Panhellenic Association. The annual Greek Olympics was held this year for the first time since 1995, raising more than $1,500 for the Children ' s Hospital of Oakland over the May i and 2 week- end. Events included games such as human fuse ball, a giant slip and slide contest, a tricycle race, and a giant inflatable obstacle course. Friday night kicked off the festivities with all the teams, each consisting of one sorority and two fraternities, partici- pating in a lip-synch contest. Approximately son people were present at Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Nu and Zeta Psi, the three fraternity houses on upper Bancroft Way, which hosted the opening ceremonies, to watch and donate to the canned food and blanket drive. On Saturday, the field events were underway. Over 800 members of the Greek Community participated in the events or cheered on their teammates. Points were awarded for all competitions including those on Friday night at the fraterni- ties. With a total of 429 points, the team consisting of Alpha Phi sorority and Theta Chi and Sigma Alpha Mu fraternities placed first. The weekend-long event concluded with " South Seas " , a bash held by Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, that went from u a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday. The party theme included a sand filled court yard, palm fronds and four live bands. All events were geared toward bringing the Greek commu- nity together. " Members of houses that didn ' t know each other were hanging out all night, " said Summers Newell, Spring Vice President of Public Relations for the Panhellenic Association about the opening events on Friday night, " It was great for everyone. " Although several sponsors reportedly withdrew their support after the publicized hazing incident involving Sigma Phi Epsilon which occurred shortly before the event, there was a large showing. " This is the most positive thing that has happened to the Greek system in a long time, " said Lisa Berquist, a member of the Greek Olympics committee. With the sucess of collaborative events this year, Panhellenic President Krista Mitzel has high hopes for the coming year, " Panhellenic and IFC (Interfraternity Council) are planning all-community philanthropies for next year including the start of a new Berkeley Cares program in which students will have the cipportunity to buy vouchers for the homeless in an effort to keep the community clean and safe, " says Mitzel. " We ' re trying to publicize more to get more people involved. By having the houses plan their schedules around all-Greek events we hope to get an even better turn out for philan- thropy events next year. " ■ 158 iur w .«» ri i .

In his fourth year, his accomplishments testify to a Greek experi- ence that leaves little room for wistful retrospect or regret for this Greek Man of the Year. For Jordt, joining Delta Tau Delta did not involve the usual perks of joining a well established house such as a large group of friends, big parties, and a solidified reputa- tion. In the spring of his freshman year, he was invited to play a game of football wdth the house. " I ended up breaking my ankle, " recalls Jordt— an ironic beginning for Jordt would pledge a house falling into near disrepair. " There was that nice glossy picture, but then you get to see the ugly side. " Instead, Jordt ' s experience involved facing the near loss of his house and managing the task of trying to rebuild it. " The house at one time had three people, " says Jordt. " I just didn ' t want to see it die. I couldn ' t let it disappear— not while I was there. " What Jordt sought to preserve were the ideals of the house that drew him to Delta Tau Delta in the first place. " Academics were the prime obligation. It was felt to be a responsibility,— [the brothers] didn ' t compromise their studies, " asserts Jordt. " [The house] also remembered to give back to the community. And it allowed you to balance this v.ith a healthy social life. " However, Jordt found that in trying to rebuild, the house ' s personality began to deviate, noting that, " The house drifted from its original goals. It was like founding the fraternity [again]. We had to know that parties and alcohol were not the focus. " The process proved frustrating for Jordt, hut through increased recruiting efforts, the house improved its mem- bership to nine members this year. " Since it ' s a small chapter, every single member is that much more important, everyone must be really involved, " says Jordt. " I tell [pledges] that each one of them must carry their load and push this house. They know when they pledge that they will play a big part. That ' s what is vital to the survival of this house. " Jordt cites that the understanding of the value of each member to the unity of a house is vital in the Greek community which he believes could be more unified. " It ' s especially visible during rush, how competitive it can get. I think it cuts down the image, " says Jordt. " You should be able to say that another house is worth joining. After all, we ' re all essentially in the same boat. If something affects one of us, it undoubtedly affects all of us. " ■ Creeks 1 8 5 • ' . .

The season lasts all year; there are no breaks. Practices are held at 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The team gets one day off a week. They train in the rain, in the cold, in the heat, before other college students get up, after other students finish the semester. They train up to five hours a day for races that last under seven minutes; in a season a rower might only race sixty minutes total. Crew doesn ' t pubHcly generate the same hype as other NCAA sports; yet men ' s crew was the first sport on campus, established in 1868, the same year the University was established. Cal holds the University record for gold medals won at the Olympics: three, in 1928, 1932, and 1948. Under head coach Steve Gladstone, the varsity team finished third last year at the National Championships. Currently, the Bears seek to take the title from Cal ' s long-standing rival, the University of Washington. The Bears met the Huskies twice this season. At the San Diego Crew Classic, where crews from across the country come to test their oars in the West Coast weather, the Varsity men took second to the Huskies, while the men ' s JV and the Novice men, under Frosh Coach Craig Amerkhanian, both took the gold home. At the dual meet, held at Redwood Shores, the JV and the Novice men again beat the Huskies. The Varsity men unfortunately suffered boat breakage within the first 500m of the race, preventing them from completing the course, and giving the Huskies a first place win. At the Pac-io Championships in Sacramento, the men ' s Varsity, JV, and Frosh teams came in first, beating out Washington. The teams don ' t show any sign of stopping after this year. The strength of the JV squad as well as the Novice team, along with the young Varsity boat. Canadian National Team member Kevin White, Yugoslavian National Team members Andreja Stevanovic and Djordje Visacki, and World Champion Sebastion Bea are all underclassmen that wall lead the team into an era of dominance in the Pac-10 and in the nation. Sports 2()3 II WOMEN ' S CREW It BY CORY BOS WORTH At one time, rowing was considered an ivy-league sport, an East Coast phenomenon imported from England, something related to Harvard and Yale. It was also considered a man ' s sport, as most sports were considered at one point in time. Today, things are a little different. The membership of US Rowing is larger than ever due to the growing number of clubs across the nation. The Pac-io Conference is one of the strongest conferences in the country. Cal and the University of Washington ' s rivalry is comparable to that of Harvard and Yale, and rowing is no longer just a man ' s sport. Established in 1975, the women ' s crew team does not have quite the histoiy of the men ' s 130 years. However, the Bears are fiercely proud of the history to which they can point, especially last year ' s sixth place finish in the Varsity Eight Event at the first-ever Women ' s Crew NCAA Championships. Under the interim Head Coach Marisa Hurtado, the Varsity eight looks to medal by placing in the top three. The JV boat, which did not qualify for NCAAs last year, is highly competitive in the Pac- 10 this year. They are ranked second going into the Pac-io Championships, to be held at Lake Natoma on May 17. This is the first in five years that the JV women ' s boat has been a force to reckon with on the water. The women ' s Novice crew, under Coach Fred Honebein, also held a strong second going into the Pac-ios and have a serious possibility of toppling the first place UW Huskies. Women ' s crew has seen great expansion in recent years, due to a growing number o f rowing clubs across the nation as well as an increase in funding due to Title IX. Therefore, the Pac-io Conference for women ' s crew has evolved into an intensely 2C. l -V i«- iy competitive one, with 1997 National Champions the University of Washington leading the pack followed by Cal, Washington State, and Oregon State all v ithin two seconds of one another. The women ' s Varsity headed into the Pac-ios with a close third to Washington State, but brought home a second place finish at the Championships. Led by co-captains Marlowe Penfold and Jane Watldnson, the team has only two graduating seniors, rowers Michele Lin and Ashley Seehusen. The rest of the Varsity and JV boats consist of sophomores and juniors, setting the stage for bigger and better seasons in the years to M ■Ll ' Sports 2 5 Above Megan Sainsbury struggles CO maintain control of the ball.

With so many new people, we lost the balance we had in ' 97. We lost our leaders, " said Oleg Kosyak. In the home of the Cardinal, the younger gymnasts got their first taste of California inspira- tion. The fuse was lit by co-captains Alex Chansky and Josh Landau, along with senior leadership from Josh Birckelbaw, Evgenii Zherebchevskiy, and Gewin Sincharoen. Kosyak, 1996 Olympian and Bronze Medalist, blazed ahead, easily outpacing the other gym- nasts in the all-around. The younger class seemed to thrive on pres- sure as Alexander Nissen, David Eskildsen, Jason Furr, and Tal Moscovitz stepped into the Califor- nia uniform with ferocious pride and energy. The Bears crushed the competition, defeating Stanford by 12.5 points. This margin of victory was so large that the Bears could have fallen 24 more times, and still beaten the Cardinal. The Bears rolled on, dominating throughout the season leaving only the shards of shattered records behind. As a team, the Bears set all-time school records on two of the six apparatuses, pommel horse and vault. On March 7, at the Gold ' s Challenge in Santa Barbara, Kosyak broke the school record as the top all-around gymnast, scoring 58.28 and averaging over a 9.7 on every BY JOSH LANDAU Despite a half-ne v team, the hugely dedicated Bears win their second NCAA title m two years! ing our dream, " said co-captain Alex Chansky. After be- ing crowned Conference Champions and Western Regional Champions, the Bears entered the NCAA tournament with ambition. Never in the his- tory of California gymnas- tics had the Bears won back-to-back NCAA Na- tional Championships. During the team prelimi- nary competition, the Bears took control, steadily out- pacing the five other teams in the championship Rou- tine after routine, the Bears made it clear that the real battle was for second and third place. Three teams qualified to the team finals, California, Iowa, and Illinois. The night of the team final, the Bears took to the floor of the competition with a vengeance. After four events the Bears boasted 24 for 24 routines. The Bears led the competition every second of the night. With ferocious tenacity, the Bears won the 1998 NCAA National Championship, making it the most successful weekend in nearly a century of California gymnastics. Josh Birckelbaw v s crowned national champion on pommel horse, while Kosyak took the silver in the all-around. California monopolized the event finals, boasting II All-American titles. " I always had faith that we would be great, but I had no idea it would happen this fast, " said head coach Barry Weiner. With a full stomach, the Bears returned with an Individual National Champion, 11 All-Ameri- cans, a 37-0 season, and the 1998 NCAA National Team Title. 215 I ' n I. I I I ' A- t I. ' - i High Marks The men ' s gymnastics team has brought more to Berkeley than two NCAA titles. These athletes have mastered the high-wire balancing act required to live the double life of a student and an athlete. Amidst the ex- haustion of morning practice from 7 to 8 a.m., followed by afternoon practice noon to 4 p.m., the Bears managed to maintain a team GPA above a 5.00 while training six days a week. Individually, the Bears have a long tradi- tion of outstanding academic excellence. In 1997, the academic helm was held by Justin McCue. " My first year was the most difficult. Adjusting to the academic rigor of this uni- versity was a challenge, " said Justin. Justin graduated with top honors (and above 5.9) in chemical engineering and won many awards: the Neufeld Scholar Award, as the most outstanding male student-athlete in the entire athletic department; the Oscar Geballe $5,000 post-graduate scholarship, which is given to the Berkeley student-athlete who shows the most potential in pursuing a postgraduate education; and a National Sci- ence Foundation graduate fellowship of $25,000 to be used to iully pay his graduate school and complete the research of his choice. Justin was one of eight chemical engi- neers in the world to be admitted to the graduate program at Stanford, but he trium- phantly TURNED THEM DOWN. Armed with his funding and his incredible ambition, Justin moved to Boston to pursue his Ph.D. at M.I.T The 1998 academic year proved just as fruitiul. This year the academic helm was held by Josh Landau. The team can now boast the best male student-athlete in the entire athletic department for two years run- ning. Following Justin ' s lead. Josh was awarded the Neufeld Scholar Award as well as the Oscar Geballe $5,000 Post-Graduate Scholar- ship. Josh was accepted to over ten different medical schools, including Dartmouth, Baylor, Viinderbilt, and Stanford. He also triumphantly TURNED DOWN Stanford and chose to go home to attend the University ol North Caro- lina, Chapel Hill. Josh was a two-time winner of the Golden Bear Academic Award, given to the athlete who exemplifies student-athlete achievement both in 1996 and 1998. He graduated with Dean ' s Highest Honors awarded each of his eight semesters at Cal and he achieved a 4.0 for all the upper division cla.sses in hi.s major and a .86 cumulative.

RHETT PA -CltAL In Spring 1997, he was inducted into the Golden Key National Honor Society, and the following year he was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society. Josh was a finalist in the Wilter Byers postgraduate $25,000 academic scholarship. He was one of four NCAA athletes to be selected as a final- ist from all sports, all divisions, and all uni- versities. This award recognizes the NCAA athlete who shows the most promise in pur- suing a postgraduate education Josh worked with the Chancellor in cre- ating a promotional video, " Messages From Berkeley, " designed to attract highly qualified academic students. The videotape interview with Josh was sent to thousands of potential students in the n.ition Representing his m.ijor, liiiman biody- namics, he delivered a speech to over ooo people during gr.idu.ition ceremonies lor in- tegrative biology and human biodynamics st dents.

" I came to UC Berke- ley because I take my academics seriously, and this type of opportunity is not available in my country. " Alexander missed the first two weeks of his freshman year because he was busy com- peting in the 1997 World Championships. Nevertheless, he earned a 4.0 for that semes- ter and has continued to uphold the tradition of Cal gymnastic academic excellence. More than a Team More than the academics, more than the athletics, the energy of the Cal gymnastics team comes from the heart. My first day with Cal gymnastics, I had no idea that I had just acquired five generations of new in-laws. But the California family soon became a reality. The team is an instant fraternity, with a brotherhood unparalleled. We suffered through the agony of 6:45 a.m. morning prac- tice, and celebrated the glory of creating a championship team. Although gymnastics is an individual sport, in no other setting have I felt such power from the love and support of a group of individuals as I have felt in the gym and on the competition floor. The love and support is bigger than the competition, and bigger than even the sport. The team has found success because every single person cares. Sometimes it means stay- ing up until 5 a.m., sitting in the kitchen talking philosophy. Or sometimes it means just dropping by one of the three gymnastics houses south of campus just to check in and see what ' s up. Or sometimes it means that a fifth-year senior sacrifices a night out on the town to help a freshman revise a paper due the next morning. These are the realities of the Cal gymnastics family. And the family extends far beyond the 16 individuals on the team. Generations upon generations of Cal gymnasts return to Berke- ley each year. Whether for a wedding, an annual Softball game, a reunion, or just sim- ply to watch one of the home meets, the legends of Cal gymnastics never keep their distance. Chuck Keeney, head coach back in the 1930 ' s, walked up the steps of Golden Bear Gymnastics every day to watch us prac- tice until his passing in 1996. Sports 217 hat led you to gymnastics? When I finished my gymnastics at Temple, I wasn ' t prepared to work 9 to 5. So, I joined the circus. At first I was one of the steel pier divers who dove into a tank from a 24-foot tower. Nearby was a whole water circus where sometimes we dove into the ocean from 2 meters. I did a lot of different shows like high dives, sponge dives, and fire dives for about five years. Then I did a couple other circus acts like the motorcycle on the high wire. I guess my body was getting a little too old to do these crazy things, but 1 still didn ' t want to get a real job, so 1 started working with kids, first in New Jersey and then later in New Hampshire. I was a club coach, and in ten-year period, I had maybe 15 gymnasts make the junior international team. I applied for this job at Berkeley when the former coach left and two former students, who I sent to Cal, called me and said f should apply. I said 1 really wasn ' t interested because 1 liked working with kids, but they insisted. So as a joke, f sent in my resume, got called for an interview, and they offered me the job. I thought it was a good opportunity for me to see if I could produce high-level gymnasts at the senior level. When I did gymnastics in the 6o ' s, Berkeley had a great team and an excellent coach in Hal Pyre. How many hours do you spend with this program per week? It varies. Today we worked out from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and then again from noon to 4 p.m. This is just the off-season [July]. I don ' t have an assistant coach. Instead I have two gradu- ate assistants, Trent Wells and David Kruse. I have no full-time paid assistant. I really need a full-time assistant coach. Do you really push an academic drive? Absolutely. When I came, the team was really poor and the skill level was really low, but the grade point average was a 3.1. Now we ' re two-time national champions and the G.p.A. is still 3.1. That stands out pretty well against the average g.p.a. of a student at Berke- ley. 1 think the average g.p.a. for a male stu- dent here is 3.15, We might be the top male team for academics here. It ' s not like these kids are basketball players headed for the NBA or football players headed for the NFL— these kids know they ' re not going to be on a Whcaties box. One o{ my gradual cs is in the Ph.D. chemical engineering program at MIT.

But certainly that ' not going to carry then through the rest of thei lives. What drives your stan- dards of excellence? As a coach of jun ior boys I alway wanted to have the bes guys, and coaching se nior men is the same One of the things tha is difficult for me is wi don ' t have the funding We ' ve been very luck ' ' to have Evgeni Zherebchevskiy wall on to our team, to hav- Alexander Nissen cal me to say Norway i paying his way, and t( have Andrew Hamp ' and David Eskildsen a walk-on ' s. I ' ve beei lucky to get the type o talent into the program Your team roster in- cludes a number of students who come from abroad. How do you recruit from other countries? Every situation i different. I don ' t havi the full funding liki other top gymnastic programs. I have to fiek my team any way I can In the case ol Olei Kosyak and E -genii, thi two from the Ukraine one of our gymnast went to the Ukraine ii 1995 and stayed at thi Olympic training facil ity as a cultural ex change experience Hi said there were a coupli guys who were inter „ ested in going to schoi in the States. He gav ' me Oleg ' s phone nuni ber and address and 1 contacted him. Anc we spoke alxiut the possibility of him com ing to Berkeley Oleg went from the Olympic C.ames if Atlanta directly to California. While there he won .1 bronze medal as a Ukrainian teani 218 rticipant. We weren ' t allowed to pay his penses from Atlanta, because that would an NCAA -iolation. So Oleg had to make re he had student visas arranged for him rough the Ukrainian Sports Delegation. He d to make sure, in addition to that, that he d another passport with student visas so could stay here. E ' genii ms a walk-on and never had a lolarship to come to Cal. He called me er Oleg was admitted and said that he mted to come. I told him we didn ' t have y more scholarship dollars and he said that I could help him get in, he still wanted to me. Financially, I don ' t know how he ' s en able to manage. Oleg came with the scholarship and egnii walked on because of the interna- mal reputation oi the Berkeley team Same th Alexander He sent me a videotape from jrway which was in European format. I uldn ' t see it so I just threw it in a box on : side. A week later, I was thinking that lybe he was good, so I took the video to jvinelle Hall ' s film lab and they converted i video to American format. I put it in and turned out he was an excellent gymnast. I ntacted him and he said that in Norway all E citizens are entitled to an education paid ■ the government. I asked him if Norway Duld pay for him to go to Berkeley, and it rned out they would. Again, that was another potential schol- jhip athlete who came without a Cal schol- ;hip because our program has half the money r scholarships allowed by the NCAA. It ' s nd of an amaring thing that we ' ve won two tional championships with half the fund- g that a Penn State, Ohio State or Stanford s. That is why I ' ve recruited foreign ath- :es— the reputation that Berkeley commands road is amazing. It is hard to be aware of every gymnast , over the country, so the kids send in pes. I look at the tape and if I like the ' mnast and his background, then I ' ll con- :t him. For example, Jason Furr, who is a ishman, was I think, the most talented merican gymnast I ' ve seen in a long time. I ent after him because he was a great gym- ist and I had money for him. I can ' t afford find other athletes other ways. Some ath- tes receive aid based on need. It ' s sometimes ird to find a good gymnast to come to our " ogram who is needy enough for financial d, but we have been able to match up kids at way. ' ho decides how the NCAA allowable holarship funds are allocated? Is it the campus or the NCAA? The NCAA says I am allowed 6.: schol- arships, which can be broken down into any fraction we want to apply. We are an equiva- lency sport. Sc me sports are head-count For instance, women ' s gymnastics allows 12. If a girl has a half or a full ride, it counts as one The NCAA allows me to spend what amounts to 6. full in-state or out-of-state scholarships. But the maximum value would be out-of-state, which at Cal is around $22,000 for room, board, tuition and extra. I am funded a little less than three scholarships, or three full rides, so my dollars are somewhere around $60,000, whereas I ' m allowed by the NCAA to have probably close to $150,000. ■ ow Stanford has 6.3 times $30,000, he- ■ cause it costs s o,ooo to go to school ■ there no matter where you live and ■ they are fully funded. Stanford ' s alumni ■ base is very broad, whereas Cal ' s comes ■ mostly from California. We don ' t re- 1 ceive the same amount of money as Stanford does. Michigan has 110,000 people going to a football game at $40 a ticket, so they are making 4 million dollars every home game. Football at Cal probably loses money. Our athletic department operates at a deficit. John Kasser has some great ideas and this arena being built [Haas Pavilion] will hopefully double the crowd at basketball games. I think athletics at Cal will be on an upswing, but right noNv we are operating at a deficit. With that being the case, certainly non-revenue sports are handicapped. If you were given an unlimited budget, what would you do? If gymnastics at Berkeley were fully funded, we would be in the NCAA team final every year. It ' s a great school, and the type of athlete who does gymnastics is very bright. Typically I ' ll get kids who write to me who got 1300-1400 on their S.A.T ' s and who have 4.0 grade point averages. There are not many other places for gymnasts to go, so we would be competing against Stanford, Penn State, and Michigan for the top kids because we have established ourselves over the past four years. If you want the best in education and a smart and coherent gymnastics pro- gram, then Cal ' s a great place to go. Kids out there know that, so if the money was equal, we would be close to the top every year. What is the bottleneck in funding right now? Do you have alumni supporters? Yes, we ha -e alumni support and it ' s growing The first year I was here we got about $12,000 in gifts and revenue and now we ' re up to about $45,000 a year But that is a drop in the bucket compared to what you really need. So are you on a priority spending list if rev- enue starts increasing here? I think John realizes the importance of every program and it is his goal to have every program fully funded. Ultimately, we would like to see every sport have its NCAA allow- able scholarships. Hopefully one day we will have the fi- nancial support we deserve, because if per- formance is an indication of who deserves to be helped, then we ' re certainly the ones that do. Right now were fighting the battle with Title IX [developed as a part of the Educa- tional Amendments of 1972, Title IX is meant to ensure gender equahty and eliminate sexual discrimination in any educational program which receives federal financial aid]. At Cal, we ' re adding women ' s sports. If you have a football program with 85 scholarship athletes, there are no women ' s sports that can offset that, so some of the male nonrevenue sports have suffered. Title IX is a reality and every school has to live with it. I think what Berkeley is doing is commendable because ■what many schools do is drop sports and we ' re not dropping sports. We ' re not decreasing opportunities. Plus Kasser has a plan that I think is a good one which will ultimately fund our department. But I don ' t know if it will ever change. The only possibility I have is if the football program makes a lot of money by going to bowl games, selling out Memorial Stadium, and getting on TV., and if the basketball program is very successful, and if Haas Pavil- ion is a big success. The Athletic Department is a separate business from Cal. I think when it does really well the university wants to take from it, but right now, the university says " You are a separate business, and you ' ve got a deficit. If you have a deficit, cut out something, fund things to a lesser degree, and get out of the hole. " You know, if the Athletic Department gets out of the hole, and it may take of a lot of different factors for that to happen, my funding ' s not going to get better. Do you see yourself with several more years of coaching? Oh yeah, I ' m not done yet. That is for sure. Hopefully it ' s here because I would like to work here until retirement age, but we ' ll see what happens. ■ Sporis 219 tsr- ■m ' Freshman Helene Kenny makes her way aero balance beam. nnie Kang performs on the uneven bars, A level 1 gymnast for three years, she so competed for Gymnastics Olympica USA.

The corners of their eyes hold tiny lines, from squinting perhaps, but possibly from the smiles they cannot hold back in knowing they are the best in the nation at what they do. They are the California Men ' s Rugby team, preparing to meet their adversaries. Their twenty other teammates are behind them, not rowdy, not giddy, but focused and intent on their goal of the day, to play their best and win. They all rally around one common goal: To once again become the National Champions. No other team on campus has a record as glorious as the rugby team, and no other team has to fight so hard to meet the standard that has been created over the years. Rugby at Cal is more than just a sport, it is a following. The players enter into a special relationship with their teammates, a friendship based on dedication, hard work, and common goals. The source of their game ' s strength is based on this camaraderie. No one player stands out as an individual; there are no stars. With each win the players are happy, but they are not truly content with their level of playing. Their goal is to constantly improve, and they are very critical of each other and their actions in any given game. Thus, winning is a side effect of perseverance and a continuous effort to master the game. In the stands, the crowds are made up of fans and past Cal Rugby players, returning ten and twenry years later with their children, sharing with them the tradition and pride involved in belonging to the Cal Rugby family. Also scattered about are newcomers, struck by curiosity or just desiring to support their friends on the field. For the first time viewer, the sight is nothing short of chaotic. The mark of a good Rugby game is that the ball constantly remains in play.

To keep track of the ball, the players must focus continually for eighty minutes, leaving no time to get distracted by cockiness or even celebration at a job well done. The viewers must focus as well. Keeping track of the ball as it is rolled, kicked, and passed along the field is challenging and exciting to witness, although penalties lead to pauses and an equally exciting event, the forming of the scrum: eight players grab what they can of each other ' s legs, shoulders, arms, and torsos to form a tight net over a ball that is only slightly larger than a football. This group then collides with the opposite team and battles through, pushing, shoving, and grunting in an attempt to gain control of the ball. From the sideline it is impossible to see what is happening at the heart of the scrum, but there is a tendency to hear a general gasp from the audience as they remember to breathe when the ball suddenly emerges out of one end of the scrum and is sent flying through the air with a swift kick or pass. The game is violent and many a player has hobbled off the field, involuntarily perhaps, bruised, bloody and broken, but each is still happy to be participating in the sport they love. The game is described as " elegantly violent, " for behind each rough play is a display of strategy and skill, and of course the aggressive enthusiasm the players feel for the game. The California Men ' s Rugby team has once agiiin shown this year to be an unbeatable force with a record of ii-o-i. 23( rtwimiii W »im f There is also the Berkeley All Blues, a women ' s rugby team that is almost the best in the nation. They play against private club teams across the nation and are continually the national champions. The women ' s program has expanded this year and created a club team, made up of a few experienced players and a large number of novices. This team has progressed substantially and competed against several teams in Northern California. They have done extremely well and should do well in the future to represent Cal on the collegiate level. Women ' s rugby is played just as men ' s rugby is, violence and aggression included, but there is a definite attraction in it since the women who just began are as dedicated to the sport as the old pros. There is much tradition surrounding the sport of Rugby, including the infamous " third half " Considering the torture that the players go through on the field, it is only fitting that they should relax and enjoy themselves off the field. According to tradition, the opposing teams have dinner together after the game. It is a way for them to celebrate their victories and dull their pains. The idea is that everyone gets " sauced " and then begins the long stream of voilgar songs and insults, all said and sung affectionately by those endeared to each other and to their sport. The bonds the team members form are almost familial in their strength, and as this implies, this bond lasts forever.

The Bears were invited to play in the NCAA Tournament for the 13th straight year— the longest current streak in the conference. I Five members of the Cal Softball squad earned mention on the All-Pac-io team. Sophomore second baseman Lisa lancin and senior pitcher Whitney Floyd were both voted to the second team, while junior shortstop Katie May, freshman outfielder Paige Bowie and freshman pitcher Nicole DiSalvio all earned honorable mention. ■ Junior shortstop Katie May and sophomore second baseman Lisa lancin fielded more gi-ound balls than any middle-infield tandem in school history this season. May set a Cal record with 166 assists, breaking the record of 161 set by third baseman Christy Calderon in 1988. May had a high of eight assists in a ten-inning game at Stanford and in an eight-inning contest against Florida. lancin had i6i assists to tie the old school mark and did not commit an error in her final nineteen games of the year.

Sports 2 3 5 HANDBALL ■ BY DONN VlVIANl The UC Handball Club was founded at the turn of the century. It played competitively for many years before the closing of the handball courts in the eighties (due to the construction of the RSF) caused it to wither. Recently the UC Handball Club and Team have made a triumphant return. Three years ago an inexperienced Cal team placed thirteenth of tw enty-two schools at the National Collegiate Handball Tournament in Cincinnatti. That was three years ago. Since then, the team has practiced and trained hard, resulting in a style of handball where the best players on the team are also highly graceful to watch. The club plays local and national tournaments and was described by Handball Magazine as the fastest grovwing collegiate team in the country. This fall Coach Burns macDonald was elected to the Northern California Handball Association Hall of Fame as a result of the growing success of the Cal program. This year Cal also hosted the National Collegiate tournament and placed sixth in the nation, out of a very competitive pool of two hundred of the best collegiate handballers from the US, Canada, and Ireland. Coach MacDonald expects the team to do even better next year. The receni addition of junior Will Rose, ranked in the Right Handba Sports Club members Milly Tsan, Christine Sarkis, Christy Lee, and Anne Weil pose after playing a game of doubles. There are about flfteem mem- bers in the club. FRONT ROW Donn Viviani, Will Rose, Yu-Chun Wang, Jonathan Fong, Team President Jeffrey H.

During breaks, Williams enjoyed talk- ing with small groups of students during spring break, gra- ciously obliging re- quests for his signature and appearing buoyant and easygoing under sunny sides in a rare break from El Niiio rains. During one break, Williams found himself in the heavy metals department. Williams ' publicist, Michael Umble, said a student asked if Will- iams ' anted to see the heaviest metal in the world, and Williams was off. " He ' s in his environment here. He loves this, " said Umble. " He ' s been to the li- brary a couple of times — it ' s such a seed of knowledge for him. He likes to explore.

His Berkeley visit was one of many stops on a na- tional lecture tour seek- ing to bring the U.N. closer to the everyday consciousness of Americans. After the Ghana native spoke, a panel of eight graduate and undergraduate stu- dents asked questions. At the ceremony, Annan was presented the Berkeley Medal, one of the highest cam- pus honors, by Rich- ard Buxbaum, dean of international and area studies. ■ 297 Mic Masters M. lie men Matt Del Bonta and Chris Lilla, along with former mic men Herb Moore and Don Denton, clap with cheerleaders to Cal tunes at San Francisco ' s Ghirardelli Square dur- ing Big Game week.

A few held on, though, for one oi the best publishing endeavors I ' ve ever seen. Their names appear on pg. 2, and a few went even further. Eric Wong per- sisted with the bureaucracy and succeeded. Lina Lee ' s organization and tenacity " saved " spons. Stanley Wu not only assisted, but, being rather hung up (thankfully) on completion, did the senior section, compiled the index, and typed numerous transcripts. The photographers made photo editing a pleasure. Ingrid Besosa planned an impressive Yearbook Days on Sproul. Shine Lin " guest edited " the Rally Committee pages. Under Victor Chen ' s and Cheryl Pascual ' s lead, senior portrait schedul- ing and book sales were done with panache by a friendly, dedicated Heller staff and sev- eral portrait assistants. Xavie Hernandez, your commitment and stability amidst the frenzy was invaluable. Thanks for taking the reins in the office when necessary. Your sensible input was alv. ' ays re- liable — and often humorous. Thanks. Eva Pawlowska was promoted to editor in chief in January, and immediately took con- trol in the high-voltage style necessary to re- energize the project. I knew I had met my match as we combed through font catalogs (for a long time), compared cover comps, and em- barked on our (neverending) journey through the heart of the book. Focus. Your creativity soared both visually and editorially, a rare com- bination. Thank you for a wond erful collabo- ration and friendship. Jane Roehrig shared an ardent commit- ment to this project as well. Much more than a sales rep, Jane pushed for quality (and re- straint on the really obsessive days). Thank you, Jane, for your relentless customer advo- cacy and your generous friendship. All of you held on, a few of you tightly, with both hands. Thanks for the ride. G RATITUDES u George Stilabower and Eva Pawlowska on Hearst Ave. ' d like to recognize the people whose en- couragement and support made this book possible. Thank you to the staff for trust- ing me to take on this project (having had no production experience). Thank you to George Stilabower for all you have taught me. Your dynamic energy and commitment to go- ing above and beyond are truly inspiring as is your friendship. Best of luck to you in New York, I will miss you. Also, a sincere thank you to the women of Alpha Phi for keeping me laughing, and especially to Leanne Tiiylor and Lindsey Davis for helping with this project, and to Sarah Hill, Mike Klyszeiko, and Tony Guan for your friendship. Most dearly, Ld like to thank my mother, Bozenna Redett— it is your creativity, strength, and understanding that have been my greatest inspiration. L___ mm€b ' " ' ifcoid 325 9 lii ■ mM masautsuasKi
