CAMP SPEAKS frcbcifig wc V£ ceice The job of the yearbook is to take a year of your life, freeze it in the form of articles and pictures, and deliver it as the Ole Miss Yearbook. Our jobs would not be finished if we only showed the best parts of Ole Miss and pol- ished over the real issues. Quite often Ole Miss is depict- ed negativly, with proclaims of ram- pant racism and sexism. While many students have not personally encountered either of these emotions, it would be ignorant to pretend they don ' t exisit. As we quickly approach the year 2000, University officials have com- mitted themselves to making Ole Miss a thriving multicultural body, readily excepting of others beliefs, and ideas. The way to reach our goal is to learn to embrace the differences in everyone. It is our place as future leaders at Mississippi ' s premire instiution to accept our neighbor for the unique person greatly created by an awesome God. A unique person that would be made inadequate if stripped of any part of their being. Regardless of popular believe, you are who you are for a reason, to make a difference in the role you were given. What kind of world would it be without difference? Ole Miss is different and that is part of her appeal. Ole Miss draws you in and teaches you the most valuable lessons in life, this makes Ole Miss special to us, but what is the job of a I University if not to give its students compassion and understanding. The times we live in make it hard to embrace the differences in our fel low man, because sometimes the most important thing to someone is th everything you have vowed to hate. My first year at Ole Miss 1 learned something that I alread} knew but had forgotten. A political science professor, Dr. C. Smith, explained in class one day the con- cept of Civil Liberties. He said, ' You can ' t deny someone the right tc do something they believe is right. " If it is not illegal they have ever) right to do what they want as do I The day we began to take away thu rights of our neighbors is the day wc all lose. 116 r-aa j.!- "

Journalism Department Receives Full Reaccredita- tion...The Department of Journalism extended their tradition of excellence by receiving full reaccreditation last summer. The journalism faculty compiled cours- es and syllabi, student and faculty resumes, budget information, and depart- mental history to complete the process. Headed by department chair Dr. Stuart Bullion, the faculty wrote a self-study titled " 50 Years of Journalism. " " I ' m always gratified by the enthusiasm and loyalty of our alumni. The success of this department is their success and vice versa. Our alumni have not just graduat- ed and gone on their way but are still a part of Ole Miss journalism, " said Bul- lion, who depended on retired faculty, alumni and friends to gather information. TheUniversity Museums. ..The city of Oxford received Mary Buie Museum in 1939, two years after Mary Buie ' s death. Her sister, Kate Anderson Skipworth, super- vised the museum ' s construction. Skip- worth contributed a large portion of her estate to the museum in 1961. Later, the museum was presented to The Universi- ty of Mississippi. In 1976, the Kate Skipworth Teaching Museum was added on to the Mary Buie Museum. Dr. Sabatier Invents Mine Detector. ..University of Mississippi scientist Dr. James Sabatier has invented the most accurate mine-hunting system in the U.S. Army ' s inventory. Sabatier ' s system scans the ground ' s ser- vice to detect and identify vibrational pat- terns produced by burial mines. First test- ed in the fall of 1998, the detector was 100 percent accurate and had no false alarms. The mine detector consists of three major components: a powerful loudspeak- er, a laser Doppler vibrometer and a com- puter. " Our job now is to make the system go faster, a lot faster. We will be working with other companies to develop a system that can scan 100 times faster. " Sabatier said.

Diversity isn ' t only between races but between men and women, greeks and non-greeks, it ' s about all of us.

The closest mate S 03 - it EMBRACING- DIFFERENCES 18 M|SS October 1-3 the University sponsored a summit on race relations, named, " Many Faces, Many Voices: One Solution " . The summit involved 11 other colleges and universities. The objective of the weekend was to get peo- ple from different backgrounds to interact. The summit grew from a group of students gathering from Ole Miss and Jackson State University to discuss race issues. They eventually felt the issues they spoke about needed to be discussed by the student bodies of their respective universities. Together Jackson State and Ole Miss stu- dents, lead by S.E.E.D, planned the Summit on Race Relations. Schools throughout the state sent represena- tives of their student bodies to take part in a 3 day con- ference, organized of panels of students discussing racial topics.
