"Northeastern has a campus?!" 
Well, maybe not In the literal 
sense of the word. When we say 
campus, we're not thinking of the 
rolling green hills over there at 
B.C., or the quaint air of the square 
at Harvard. We start with a look at 
apathy (who cares?) and finish 
with a scream from the zoo crew, 
perhaps the least apathetic bunch 
on campusl In between, you'll find 
all kinds of tidbits that'll Jolt your 
memory today and years from 
now. Some of It's sentimental, and 
some of It's lampoon-lsh, but It's 
all right here at N.U. Just turn the 
page . . . 


In spite of the fact that more 
than half of Northeastern's stu- 
dents are commuters, there are 
hundreds of organizations to get 
Involved with. Although recruiting 
members Is a problem for all, 
there are many clubs that are very 
active. In addition to actual stu- 
dent organizations, we have also 
covered activities like New Hori- 
zons mini-courses and NU's quar- 
terly blood drives. Some of the stu- 
dent activities Included are: BSAC, 
Sliver Masque, NUHOC, NU Choral 
Society, the student publications, 
Social Council, Student Govern- 
ment, Student Union, various for- 
eign student clubs, and many fra- 
ternities, sororities, and honor so- 


In addition to the usual team pic- 
tures, we have tried to Include a 
more personal look at some of the 
different athletes and their sports. 
Included are features on outstand- 
ing team members and coverage 
of such events as the Beanpot and 
the Head of the Charles. 


In this part of the book, we will 
(In 22 pages) tell you what hap- 
pened In the "real world" while 
you were here at NU, In the "col- 
lege world". Maybe co-op kept 
you In touch with world events, 
and maybe some of you never 
looked beyond the comics In the 
weekly paper. Either way, here's a 
look at the highlights of 1978 to 1- 


Need we say more? Congratula- 
tions, you lucky dogs, and good 
luck In the futurel 


A look at what makes NU so 
well-known, the reason why we 
have to go through that year of 
limbo known as "mlddler." Includ- 
ed are Interviews with students 
who have had co-op Jobs In places 
right here In Boston to as far away 
as England. Also, be sure to read 
about Sam and Suzy, the two pro- 
spective co-ops who were having 
trouble getting Interviews until the 
Cauldron staff made them Suave 
and Sophisticated, respectively. 


These pages feature a number 
of well-known professors In all of 
the different colleges. Many de- 
partments were taken over by 
new chairmen In the past year 
and we have Interviewed some of 
them regarding changes in cur- 
riculum and policies. Find out who 
made decisions about the courses 
you took. And learn what your fa- 
vorite professor does on the week- 




A staff composed of approxi- 
mately thirty people (Including 
those who "Just came by to help" 
— core staff of about ten) have 
prepared this book for you, the 
Class of 1983. In addition to pic- 
tures of the staff (which is made 
up of at least two-third underclass- 
men), there Is a two-page synop- 
sis of what is involved In putting a 
yearbook together. 




Apathy. Lack of emotion. Lack of inter- 
est. Indifference. 

We all suffer from it occasionally. It's long 
been thought to be a particularly bad prob- 
lem at Northeastern. Why? 

Are we all lazy? Are we all too busy? 
Maybe we're all In a permanent state of co- 

First, just what are we supposed to be so 
apathetic about? Well, there's athletics, 
drama, and Just about any other campus 
organization or activity you can think of. 

I know from personal experience from 
my work at the News that a lot of people 
don't want to get Involved. Many of them 
say they don't have the time, they have too 
much studying or they have to do laundry 
or the geraniums are dying or whatever. 

Hey, you don't think I have any studying 
to do? How come kids at other schools get 
really, really Involved In their schools' ac- 
tivities and they can get to their books 
without any whining? 

Maybe the problem is Northeastern. 

We get 16 weeks of work crammed into 
10. During that time many of us have to go 
looking for co-op jobs. According to a re- 
cent article In Newsweek Magazine about 
our Illustrious co-op system, Job hunting 
may at times take precedent over eating, 
sleeping and even sex. 

Another point Is that many students here 
don't live on or near campus. Ours is pre- 
dominantly a commuters' school. Not 
many people care to drive in from Lynn or 
Peabody for a game or concert. And, I 
think that after a long day of classes even 
fewer people want to hang around campus 
for a meeting or rehearsal. 

So here's to all the people who go to the 
plays, the basketball games, the concerts, 
and the meetings. 

Here's to to the people who keep all 
those organizations running, all those pa- 
pers that get written, all those games that 
get played. 

And, here's to . . . oh, who cares? 


After two million dollars worth of renova- 
tions our historic old arena has made a 
new name for Itself. On November 14th it 
was renamed for George J. Matthews, 
B'56, the general partner of The Matthews 
Group and national chairman of the Cen- 
tury Fund, and his wife Hope M. Matthews, 
the major benefactors. 

The legendary structure, the largest and 
oldest of its kind In the United States, was 
born in 1909 and spent its youth as Bos- 
ton's premier hockey and boxing empori- 
um. It was the home at one time or another 
of five professional teams: the Boston Bru- 
ins, the Bruin Cubs, the Boston Olympics, 
the Boston Whalers, and the Boston Tigers 
of the Canadian-American Hockey League. 
It served as a rink for such boxing greats as 
heavyweight champion Jack Sharkey, 
middleweight Paul Pender, and Sugar Ray 

During Its middle years, the arena saw 
more basketball action as the Celtics 
played their first game there In 1946. It also 
provided grounds for most of the area's 
collegiate basketball and hockey teams as 
well as many high school teams. 

In 1977 the arena was purchased by 
Northeastern from the Metropolitan District 
Commission (MDC) and became the home 
of our champion basketball and hockey 

The vast changes Include new locker 
rooms, a new roof, renovated mechanical 
and electrical systems, a portable basket- 
ball floor, and new seating. Its annex now 
provides space for the Women's Athletic 
Department and mall services. And, plas- 
ter covering the arch Is coming down bit by 
bit to reveal its historic face. 

If there's one thing you can say about the 
Matthews Arena, it's this: It's not getting 
older; It's getting better.

Oh, Alma Mater, here we throng 
And sing your praises strong. 
Your children gather far and near 
And seek your blessings dear. 
Fair memories we cherish now 
And will forevermore. 
Come, let us raise our voices strong,

anger box 

Unless you are a member of the Cauldron 
staff, you probably have NO IDEA what an 
anger box is, or why we have one. 

There Is often a great deal of frustration 
and pressure Involved in putting together a 
yearbook. This pressure is heightened by 
the fact that deadlines fall around holidays 
or during finals week. Therefore, to help 
relieve this tension, we have The Anger 
Box — we beat on Itl For some reason, it has 
been used more since we put our editor-in- 
chief's picture on It . . . Oust kidding Kathl) 

If perhaps you are wondering about the 
history of The Anger Box (and even If you 
aren't), I'll explain Its origin to the best of 
my memory. The Anger Box was created 
one day In the Fall of 1980 by Mark Crow- 
ley, the editor of the 1981 Cauldron. His 
assistant editor, Cheryl L'Heureux was on 
the rampage after a very bad day with 
many catastrophles. To top It all off, she 
had discovered that some joker had de- 
stroyed the sign-up sheets for seniors to 
"Do it for Mom." At this point, Mark was 
afraid that some sort of damage might be 
done to the office (or to him) so he grabbed 
a nearby box telling Cheryl to "hit thlsl It 
might make you feel betterl" Thus the birth 
of The Anger Box. 

The Anger Box has been popular with all 
angry staffers ever since, and will most 
probably be In use as long as the Cauldron 
continues to be published. 

The Anger Box Is currently on display In 
442 EC. 


You're down to a pair of argyle socks, 
your Junior prom gown, and a pair of under- 
wear with a pocket In the front (ahem . . . 
meaning they're his, not yours). You have 
one of three choices: You can go with what 
you've got (believe me — you'll get no- 
ticed); turn yesterday's outfit Inside out; or 
follow your clothes down to the laundro- 
mat, because right now they're starting to 
crawl out the door. 

Quick, grab your quarters and a good 
magazine, because there's no escaping 
the laundry blues. 

The Intensity of the laundry blues is di- 
rectly proportional to the distance you live 
from home. For Instance, my first boyfriend 
was 40 minutes from home, and he used to 
bring his laundry with him every weekend 
for Mum. He rarely felt the pressures of the 
spin cycle. I however, was four hours from 
home, and balked at the thought of trek- 
king two duffel bags of dirty clothes home 
and back — even If Greyhound was doing 
the drlvlngl So you can see, I have suffered 
deep laundry blues. (Especially since that 
time when I tossed my new-for-school blue- 
Jeans In along with my white shirts). 

You may remember the very first time 
you got the laundry blues. I do: I was un- 
packing my belongings in the cubicle that 
was to become my home, when suddenly I 
ran across a box of "Tide" and a bottle of 
"Downy." I shrugged, set them down on 
my desk and forgot about them. Two 
weeks later, I realized that they were not 
meant to be bookends, although they 
served that purpose very nicely. 

From that point on, things went downhill, 
or shall I say downstairs — four flights of 
them to the basement where a row of 
washers and dryers gaped In amazement 
at the amount of laundry I had. It was a 
harrowing experience, foam everywhere, 
Luke and Laura were fighting . . . maybe I 
should have payed more attention to the 
suds Instead of the soaps . . . but there was 
nothing else to do. 

I've moved Into an apartment since then, 
and my clothes are now cleaned In a real 
laundromat . . . big, fat, hairy deal. Unless 
you do your laundry during dinnertime, you 
have to contend with the neighborhood 
families doing 18 loads of wash at one 
time. And, If you're like most students and 

put It off until Sunday, count on at least 20 
kids (with runny noses) fighting over some- 
thing all at once: over a candy bar, who's 
going to sit in your laundry basket . . . stuff 
like that. 

Times have changed, and so have laun- 
dry detergents. (Walt, this is starting to 
sound like a commercial). Now, they have 
those one-step products, you can get away 
with a quarter-of-a-cup, save time and still 
learn the words to the product Jingle all In 
one easy step. 

With all this additional time, you could 
even bring your homework to the laundro- 
matl Well, you could, but It's more fun to 
chuck your clothes In the washer and run 
out to the nearest drugstore and peer at 
the magazines, mill around in the candy 
aisle and repeatedly ask the cashier if you 
could have change for a dollar. (For the 
dryer of course). By the time you're bored 
with this, you can run back and throw your 
clothes In the dryer, and then run some 
more errands. 

But, be sure you can trust the other peo- 
ple in your laundromat before you think 
about leaving your clothes unattended. 
Once, when I was living In Cambridge, all 
my underwear was stolen while I was de- 
ciding between M & M's and a box of 
Cheez-lt's. I only hope the culprit is as faith- 
ful about using "Bounce" in the dryer as I 


Move over pinball wizards, because 
you're being replaced by vldeophlles — a 
new breed of Junkie addicted to electronic 
games. Even here at Northeastern, the 
third floor gameroom of the Ell Center has 
become a place where life and death situ- 
ations occur every minute In a never-end- 
ing battle against aliens. It's a place where 
your very life can be put on the line for 
twenty-five cents. 

Thousands of people a day crowd 
around these machines to play their favor- 
ites . . . mankind against computers In a 
game of survival. 

The games on the market today range 
from Donkey Kong, Defender and Aster- 
olds to the traditional Space Invaders and 
Pac Man (and Ms. Pac Man I -ed.). Some of 
the newer ones include Zaxxon, Jungle 
King, and Tron to name a few. 

Video games have become so frustrat- 
ingly popular that books have been pub- 
lished on how to "beat" them. 

And, with the computer-in-every-home 
syndrome Just around the corner, the com- 
mitted video Junkie might even consider 
purchasing his or her own arcade system. 

Why do so many people play these 
games? Perhaps because they are so hyp- 
notic. The bright lights, colorful screens and 
unusual sounds beaming from each ma- 
chine totally envelop the player. Also, 
there is the challenge of competition. The 
electronic entertainment requires quick 
hand-to-eye coordination, nimble fingers 
and a sharp strategy to win. 

Movies such as Star Wars and E.T. also 
have stimulated our ability to Imagine oth- 
er beings beyond our own world. The video 
games give us a chance to actually meet 
these beings by bringing them Into our 

So, we are turning Into a race of video 
Junkies? No one knows for sure, but one 
visit to a local arcade will convince you 
that electronic entertainment is here to 
stay. (As long as you don't run out of quar- 


Being a good roomate Is like taking an 
advanced course in the fine art of compro- 
mise. How else could two basically oppo- 
site people move In together and still be 
roommates (and great friends) two-and-a- 
half years later? People say we act mar- 
ried. I suppose they have a point, but who 
else would you discuss grocery shopping 
and cleaning the bathroom with if not your 

We watch out for each other, sort of as 
surrogate mothers . . . she makes sure I eat 
healthy meals now and then and I make 
sure she gets up on time for work in the 

There are certain things we learned 
about each other right away, like I'm a 
neat freak and she's "a little more laid 
back." Or the fact that she's Jewish and 
I'm Catholic limits our religious discussions 
(except curiouslty about the other's beliefs 
and practices). Other things were learned 
with time, like waiting until after her fifth 
sneeze before saying "God Bless You." 

Other differences subtly worked them- 
selves out as time went on. For example, 
my favorite radio station has always been 
WBCN, and hers always has been WCOZ. 
We found a compromise, WBOS, which we 
both enjoy. She's on the opposite division 
from me, and unlike me, prefers to study in 
the apartment. One of my hardest lessons 
was learning NOT to interrupt her studying, 
to shut up once in a while. (I think I still have 
a long way to gol) 

In the most important area-food-it took us 
longer to learn each others like and dis- 
likes. Our first trip to the grocery store was 
a Joke. We were there for over an hour, 
standing there saying to each other "Well, 
I don't care, what do you like?" 

Things improved slowly, but an episode a 
year after moving In made me wonder . . . 
we were trying to decide what kind of Juice 
to buy. I said, "Oh let's not get O.J., I really 
don't like It that much . . . but, I know you 
like It, so if you want . . ." 

"Walt," she said, "I don't really like or- 
ange Juice, I thought you dldl" 

We'd been buying orange Juice for a 
year and neither of us liked itl 

This year, we're parting ways due to co- 
op, and It will be quite an adjustment after 
so long to be living with different people. 

We went out the other day and toasted 
Champagne to our "divorce" . . . she gets 
the car and I get the furniture . . . 


A poor way to start a Monday: WARNING 
— Do not move this vehicle. It has been 
seized by the City of Boston for unpaid 
parking tickets. 



It's a simple substance that brings Joy to 
the lives of many, many people. Research 
shows that 18 out of every 10 people enjoy 
chocolate. Figures have not yet been es- 
tablished for the number of "chocoholics" 
among this group, however It is believed to 
be high. What's a chocoholic? Well, most 
chocoholics would break all track records 
during their sprint to the nearest candy 
counter in search of their daily fix. Choco- 
holics have a keen sense of smell and will 
always be over to visit as soon as your 
chocolate cake Is out of the oven. 

There are many myths surrounding 
chocolate and Its users: It is believed that 
chocolate is fattening. What people forget, 
however, is the number of calories burned 
when chocolate is involved. Consider, for 
example, the 800 calories expended while 
hiding all your chocolate before company 
arrives. Another popular myth states that 
chocolate is not nutritious. Certainly not 
truel Why, a normal serving (8 ounces) of 
chocolate has 20 times more protein than 
several shreds of carrot or even half a slice 
of apple. It has also been rumoured that 
chocolate is bad for the complexion. 
Whose idea was It anyway to use choco- 
late as a replacement for Noxema? Then 
there is even a myth that chocolate is an 
aphrodisiac . . . that's no myth — it's a factl 

Even people who don't admit to being 
chocoholics have experienced the Choco- 
late Chip Cookie Syndrome. Ever make a 
double batch of chocolate chip cookie bat- 
ter and end up with only a single batch of 
chocolate chip cookies (and a rather sick 
feeling in your stomach)? 

Chocoholics save less money than the 
passive chocolate eater. That's because 
the average chocoholic requires anywhere 
between five and 50 pounds of that vital 
substance per week — and that get's ex- 

During the holidays, chocolate lovers live 
by a separate set of rules. The age old 
sentiment "It is always better to give than 
to receive" does not hold. Any chocoholic 
certainly would rather receive five pounds 
of Godiva than take out a loan to buy it for 
a friend. (A chocoholic has learned it's best 
not to have friends with the same lust for 
chocolate anyway— this reduces the 
chances of having to share.) 

Whether It be milk or semi-sweet, Her- 
shey or Cadbury, chocoholics are to be 
found In all shapes, sizes and tastes of life. 
So, watch your chocolate. 


Be it by car, MBTA, or bike; the word 
"commute" generally leaves a bad taste 
In the mouth. Being subjected to the sadis- 
tic whims of professors is bad enough, but 
the thought of that dally commute to North- 
eastern can make some students wish they 
had a studio apartment In the basement of 
Richards Hall. (Not too close to the comput- 
er room, please)l 

Only dedication and motivation (other- 
wise known as Mom and Dad) can pluck 
those commuters out of the loving arms of 
their electric blankets and throw them onto 
the road by sunrise. 

A lot of commuters driven off NU parking 
premises must Instead face the ghoulish 
meter maids lurking on Boston's streets. 
Generally, Boston meter maids wear tacky 
uniforms and subscribe to "Hitler Youth 
Magazine: Duty First." It does not phase 
them In the least when they ruin your day 

with a $15 ticket. 

Riding to school on the Arborway "T" Is 
an equally horrid situation. You travel 
through the foreboding tunnels of this fair 
city, clinging for your life to some slimey 
hand rail as the conductor laughs In a fit of 
madness. The train hurtles through the 
darkness with the smell of perspiration 
hanging heavy In the air; some fat slob is 
drooling all over your physics book. Yes, 
riding the "T" bus is quite the drag. 

Other commuters subject themselves to 
another form of torture — they ride their 
bikes to school. 

Biking In Boston is like picniklng In Beirut- 
—sometimes It's fun, sometimes It's not. 

This brand of commuter considers it the 
best way to get around the Hub. Says one 
two-wheeler: "With the street scum be- 
neath my wheels, the soot In my hair and 
the carbon monoxide in my lungs, I'm set 
free from the doldrums of pedestrian life 
without having to deal with the responsibil- 
ities of auto ownership and the harrowing 
occurrences on the green line." 

The bad thing about biking In Boston Is 
the dreaded "Boston driver." Boston mo- 
torists are rude. They beep at bikers, they 

threaten them with chains and they spit 
obscenities as they bomb around the city 
destroying the ozone with their noxious va- 

Boston taxi drivers are ever more dan- 
gerous, and capable of committing the 
most dastardly of crimes. Mowing down a 
few Northeastern students would mean 
nothing to them. The only thing a Boston 
cabbie does brake for Is hallucinations. 

The best way for the NU commuter to 
avoid personal injury Is to pay attention to 
the general flow of things because danger 
lurks everywhere. Even a simple commute 
from Stetson West could result in a lifelong 
diet of Gerber's baby food If you don't 
watch yourself and a Ford Econotlne mows 
you down. 

Mental damage Is another commuter 
malady. You'll see the Ell Center Lounge 
littered with spent, fragmented shells of 
commuters. They don't know who they are, 
what they are or where they're going . . . 
they're Just commuters on the road of life . . 


You people living In the dorms don't 
know how lucky you are. You all have 
those nice little rooms, you have wonderful 
staff members from the housing office to 
assist you, and you don't have to cook for 

Some people enjoy cooking, although I 
can't think of any reason why they should. 
It wasn't until after I started living In an 
apartment and had to cook for myself that I 
learned why Peg Bracken wrote the "I Hate 
to Cook Book." 

The problem when you live on your own 
Is that you have to cook, whether you like It 
or not. I have this terrible vice, you see. I 
like to eat. Hence, I have to cook. 

Oh, the terrible things I've done to chick- 
en during the past year. Frank Perdue 
would never forgive me. 

Uncle Ben would box my ears If he ever 
tried my rice. It's not lumpy, It's mountain- 

I think I owe my life to Betty Crocker. I've 
got an awful sweet tooth, especially when 
It comes to cake and brownies. I tell you, 
one egg and a cup of water later, and I'm 
In heaven. 

A trip through my kitchen would be scar- 
ier than a house of horrors on Halloween. 

First, there's the refrigerator. Nothing 
dies in there. Orange Juice freezes In the 
refrigerating section and Ice cream melts 
In the freezer. Once I cooked a whole 
chicken (yes, that's right, a whole chicken) 
and left It In the fridge. When my roommate 
found it a week or two later, It had started 
feeding Its young. Yukl 

Another time I left some milk in there dur- 
ing Christmas vacation. It was later the In- 
splration for the feature film, "The Blob." 

Next, the pantry. Harmless for the most 
part. Everything Is stacked neatly on the 
shelves and it appears to be the only place 
of order In the kitchen. Just don't go In 
there without turning on the light. 

The stove is a monster of a machine. The 
oven door won't close all the way so the 
wood cabinet next to It is burned. When- 
ever I turn up one of the gas burners it 
flares Into my face and tries to burn the 
lashes off my eyelids. Trying to boll water 
can be life-threatening. 

Luckily, my mother Is no fool. She knows 
what I'm like in the kitchen. She kept me 
out of there for 22 years. So on a recent 
visit she presented me with some asbestos- 
lined gloves. They go up to the elbows. 

They've saved my life, and the skin on my 
arms, more than once. 

And the sink? I think It's been the cause 
of some missing cups and plates, as well as 
my favorite cereal spoon. I Just stay away 
from It. My roommates love me for that. 

Seriously, it's not so bad. I've learned 
quite a few things in there. I can make a 
mean pizza . . . from scratch. And It's even 

Sometimes I think back on how things 
were when I was living In the dorms. I re- 
member the good times my friends and I 
used to have down in the cafe. I remember 
the Jello fights, and trying to steal. I remem- 
ber waiting In long lines for a slice of veal. I 
remember waiting how we used to play 
Name That Meal ("What Is It tonight, 

I can still taste the moving mashed pota- 
toes, the living string beans and the catch- 
lt-before-it-gets-away roast beef. I even re- 
call that special feeling I used to get after 
every meal. 


And In the cracks the roaches hide, 
And way down deep, deep down inside, 
The mothers nurture soft-shelled young, 
And the men sing songs their grand-dads 


"When life was magic, life was sweet, 
And there were many things to eat, 
The city boarded up the house 
Of Mr. Jones' psychotic spouse, 
Who he had fled from years ago . . . 

"But not one cry was ever cried, 
For trapping Mrs. Jones Inside, 
We did not mind that In the least, 
Indeed she's still our favorite feast." 

Bill Fusco 


Reach out and touch someone, Ma Bell 
says. Well, that's a wonderful idea, but 
does she realize what It costs? 

There are different ways to do this. You 
can write a letter or send one of those 
cards that has most of the message written 
for you. Postage will run 20 cents, but the 
cost In time — If you don't have It — Is much 

You could always stop in and visit but 
you usually have to call first anyway to see 
If the person is home and whether or not he 
or she fells like being graced with your 
presence. Don't bother, It's a waste of gas. 

That leaves the phone. You can call 
Greece. You can call Bralntree. The odd 
thing is that It's cheaper to call Greece 
than it Is to call Bralntree. Seems that way 

Luckily I don't have to call either one of 
these places. I, do, on occasion, have to 
drop a dime for Mom. 


"HI, Mom. How's things?" 

"Who's this?" 



"I had the yellow room at the end of the 
hall. On the left." 

"Oh, hi dear. I was Just thinking about 
you. (She always says that). Guess what 
we got In the mall today?" 

"Will I be happy to hear about it?" 

"Your tuition bill came. Should I mail the 
check out right away?" 

"That depends, Mom. Do you want me to 
stay in school or come back home to live?" 

"Will you promise to pick up the dirty 
dishes you always leave In the living 


"All right, I'll have It out In tomorrow's 

"How's Dad and everybody?" 

"Oh, they're all fine. Hang on, Bert wants 
to say 'hello'." 

"Who wants to say 'hello'?" 

"Bert. Come here, Bertie, say 'hello' to 

'Sound of phone clattering on to the ta- 
ble, scuffling In background) 

"Mom, MOMI" 

"Yes, dear?" 

"I really don't think the dog has much to 

say to me tonight. We can cay 'hello' when 
I come home." 

"All right, dear." (Mothers always call 
their kids "dear." Sometlnes I think they 
forget our names.) 

"Look, Mom, I really have to get going, 
this Is costing a lot." 

"Oh, has It been that long already?" 

"Yeah, It's been too long already, talk to 
you next week. Bye, Mom." 

"Goodbye, dear." 

Go ahead and laugh. With very little ex- 
aggeration, I've Just chronicled a phone 
call home. If I had a little more space In this 
yearbook, I could have told you what It's 
like when Dad picks up the extension and 
the two of them start to argue while I'm left 
hanging on the other end. 

So reach out. But Just say "hi." 


A good number of us lived In one of 
Northeasterns's dorms at some time, espe- 
cially during Freshman year. Most of us 
looked forward to our move-In day. It signi- 
fied, for many, freedom. Our first chance to 
live on our own In a brand new environ- 
ment. And, we arrived with all our precon- 
ceived notions of what dorm life was all 
about: sex, drugs and rock and roll. 

Dorm life at Northeastern Is filled with Its 
share of parties, 3:00 a.m. fire alarms, 
noise, rules and regulations and a host of 
other things. Some people thrived on life In 
those often high cost halls, others fled to 
off-campus apartments. For those of us 
who stayed, our little corner of a room be- 
came our cubicle, sweet cubicle. Not ex- 
actly home, but often a lot more fun. 

New experiences abound for the dorm 
dweller. And, the first obstacle faced Is 
getting along with the roommate or room- 
mates. A roommate Is often a stranger to 
us at the start of a quarter. As the months 
go by, they may remain a stranger or they 
may become a close friend. Friend or foe, 
living with another person has Its share of 
fun and fights. Roommates often can be 
seen eating or studying together. (And, 
heard fighting over who will get the top 
bunk or when to play the stereo.) 

Sometimes we didn't get to see our 
"roommates" until circumstances were 

Just right, like leaving some crackers on our 
desk. Only then would those small and 
fuzzy or hard and crunchy friends arrive. 
Those seemingly Indestructable city dwell- 
ers found all the comforts of home in NU 
dorms. They were there before us and will 
remain after us as permanent residents of 
the dorms. 

Off-campus apartment dwellers may 
share the experience of having roommates 
and creepy crawlies. But, what is unique 
about the dorm experience Is having a 
dorm staff, the R.A.'s and R.D. to contend 
with. Some residents tried to dodge the 
staff whenever they could. Others seemed 
to cling to them In times of trouble. Some 
R.A.'s were pals, other were enemies. A 
few we may have papered in and some we 
talked to for hours when we Just needed 
someone to be there for us. Staff members 
were friends, cops, foster parents, role mo- 
dels and party busters all rolled Into one. 
The R.A. Is often the first person a dorm 
resident meets when they move in. And, 
they soon become well-known for their 
floor meetings, audits, and floor parties. 
Most R.A.'s tried to make our transition 
from home life to dorm life less traumatic, 
but they also ruled over us with their regu- 

The majority of dorm residents lived in a 
co-ed dorm. At first It may have been 
shocking, especially for your grand-moth- 
ers when they saw the urinals in the girls' 
bathroom. But, shock turned into a better 
understanding of what the opposite sex 

was all about. Many close friendships were 
formed as we faced the problems of 
classes, exams and co-op interviews to- 
gether. Occasionally, the friendships blos- 
somed Into something more. Everything 
from casual flings to long lasting relation- 
ships occured. People found new boy- 
friends or girlfriends, their first love or had 
terrible crushes on the person downstairs. 
One thing we all learned Is that life with the 
opposite sex certainly does have its ups 
and downs but It Is terribly nice to have 
them around. 

Pranks were the name of the game in the 
dorms. Short sheeting of beds, water fights, 
pennylng and papering people in their 
rooms and stealing all the shower curtains 
to make tablecloths for our morning meal 
were Just a few of the Ingenious ways we 
found to have fun. It was always nice to let 
loose once In a while and It seemed to unify 
floors or whole sections of a building. 

The cafeteria was always that dungeon 
that served the mystery meat and Husky 
burgers we supposed contained more 
Husky than burger. Ah yes, those culinary 
delights cooked Just for us. The macaroni 
and cheese that could stick to an over- 
turned plate, the salad that had unidenti- 
fiable objects In It, coffee that could take 
the rust off cars and soft-serve ice cream 
that ended up being our meal. They were 
Just a few of the Items we waited in long 
lines for. But, if we didn't eat what was 
served to us we always found something to 
do with it. Mashed potato sculpture was a 
favorite, so was hiding food under a nap- 
kin. And, when we finished with that, the 
grande finale was to throw It. Animal House 
lives on. 

Rooms in the Northeastern dorms were 
always hard to get and often hard to keep. 
Housing contracts had their deadlines and 
even if you met the deadline you may have 
been put on the dreaded waiting list. Once 
you got a room It may have been large and 
spacious or a tiny closet-like space for two. 
Privacy was often hard to find and closet 
space was never enough. But, we hung our 
wild posters and stacked the beer cans In 
the window to make our cubicle a home 
and expression of our individuality. 


Those damn pigeons . . . it's up, it's goodl 
Another bothered pedestrian has booted 
one of those ragged birds. It seems the 
urge is always there to speed up one's 
pace In hopes of smearing a waddling pi- 
geon into the cement. 

Flocks and flocks of pigeons menace our 
city. And, they make their presence known 
whenever they can by dive-bombing cars 
and pedestrians alike. 

So kick a pigeon today, and help support 
the crusade to rid our fair city of these des- 
picable birds. 

december 9 

December 9th marked the first day of 
winter at Northeastern as the snow floated 
gently across campus. Unfortunately, we 
all had to watch it through the window of 
our 9:15 classroom, because it only lasted 
a few minutes. But, it was enough to excite 
skiers, who Just a week before had deliber- 
ated trading in their Rosslgnols for roller- 
skates when temperatures rose into the 
70s — an all time high for the season of ho- 
ho-ho and mistletoe. 


Dealing drugs at Northeastern Isn't risky, 
but then it isn't a way of supplementing 
tuition either. While many students like to 
get high here, there are also a large num- 
ber or people who look lost or surprised in 
the 'Drugs and Society' class. 

Back in 1979 the supply of reefer, or mari- 
juana for those of you that didn't take the 
class, was pretty good, and the quali- 
ty — always high-grade. But, those days 
are slowly dissipating into a cloud of 
smoke. Excuse the pun, but I must meet the 
parents stereotype of "lamebrains," and 
being honest (something us drug dealers 
don't do too often) I had to look up 'dissi- 
pate' In the dictionary. 

What was I talking about again? Oh 
yeah, drug dealing. I tend to lost my mem- 
ory when I'm high, how about you? One 
time I bought a quarter-pound of pot and 
when I left the guy's house I forgot the 
dope. What a bummer, man, I mean it was 
like right out of Cheech and Chong, man. 
Anyway, back to dealing at NU. When I 
lived on Gainsborough street, I could walk 
down the street and catch a contact buzz 
(that's getting high by Just inhaling the 
fumes). There were enough people on that 
street to support four or five dealers. 

The dormitories always cracked me up. I 
lived In an apartment, and when I went to a 
friend's place to get high, and sell some 
dope, they would have to put a towel by 
the door so the R.A. didn't smell it. What a 
hassle. People were getting buzzed left 
and right. 

You know, I really feel sorry for my room- 
mate from freshman year. He started 
school a non-smoking, A-student, with 
short hair and conservative clothes. When 
he went home that summer, his cum had 
fallen to a 1.0, he was a bigger pot freak 
than myself (yes, It's true. I mean the guy 
was a partying machine — even more than 
the kid himself). He thanked me for being a 
great Influence and for opening up his eyes 
— hi* parents wanted to kill me. 

I'll tell you, the best way to make friends 
Is to deal pot. It's like working in the local 
pub or liquor store, everybody stops by, or 
a friend of a friend of a friend. Dealing was 
pretty safe, too. Even the security guards 
used to come up and party with us. They 
always wanted cocaine though. Don't they 
know that college kids can't afford that 
stuff? (That is unless you deal that, too.) 

You know how cocaine is, you do a line 
or two and then it's all gone. An hour later 
you want some more. First it's a quarter 
gram and then it's a whole, and then you're 
in debt— meaning your life is on the line. 
Cocaine dealing is a nasty business, and 

you know why? Because those dealers are 
real greedy. They cut the coke with 
everything from flour to roach powder, and 
charge you $25. No thanks, I'll stick to the 
pot scene. There Is a problem there, too, 
though. After a while you get used to the 
buzz and then It takes a half-ounce every 
three or four days instead of a week or so. 

The trick to being successful at dealing 
pot is to buy a pound of good dope, and 
sell It by the ounce or half-ounce. If you can 
sell it before you smoke the profits, you'll 
make a few bucks. Otherwise, It's Just deal- 
ing to keep yourself in supply. It's simple 
economics, if you sell a half-ounce for $25 
and the supply If low, the profits stay high, 
and so do you. Plus, the people keep com- 
ing back. If you can corner a market literal- 
ly, that's all you need. Watch out though, 
because dealing pot can turn you into a 
Greatful Dead-Head. 

Well, It's been fun rapping with you, but I 
gotta meet my man at five or I can't cop 
my dope — it's sensemillian, too. Remem- 
ber all you young pot dealers, don't smoke 
up all your profits, and if you ever run out of 
reefer, give me a buzz you where to reach 


This message board greets commuters 
every morning with Information about up- 
coming events. It even gives them the time 
of day so they can make it to class. 



"This is a great day to watch the soaps." 

I looked up from the Metro section of The 
Globe and across the table to my room- 

"Why Is that?" I answered, Incredulous 
at the thought of spending a day watching 
Luke and Holly cavorting across the TV 

"Well, It's so gray and cold and rainy out 
I just thought It would be nice to curl up on 
the couch and watch the soaps today," 
she said, and got up to pour herself a fresh 
cup of coffee. 

Her thoughts kept bouncing around in my 
head for the rest of the morning. I had to 
agree with her, it was a fantastic day to 
stay inside with a good book, a roaring fire 
and a cup of General Food's International 

She wanted to spend a perfectly good 
staylng-ln day In front of the set wondering 
if Edwlna was going to get back with 
Marco, and I had a very different Idea, a 
very different escape hatch. 

Escape. How often do we want to stay in 
bed, run and hide or even sail away to a far 
shore to get away from our troubles. 

Lots of people go to bars. Bars can be a 
nice places to meet people, sit and chew 
the fat or Just get bulldozed. But, If anyone 
goes to a bar to escape, alcohol Is usually 
the main incentive. 

Drugs are another vehicle to get away 
from It all. Whether you smoke or snort, get 
high or get down, there's always that 
something extra that makes the day go a 
little bit slower. 

One of the latest escapes is via the video 
game. For a quarter you can blast aster- 
olds out of the sky, save a beautiful girl 
from a gorilla and get enough radiation to 
melt the eyeballs right out of your head. 

There are those who are a little more di- 
rect In their method of escape. Some Just 
pull the covers over their heads in the 
morning and hide away from the day. Oth- 
ers hop a bus or plane to far-off lands. Still 
there are others who truly can't deal with 
life and take a more permanent trip. 

Some people are trying to escape from 
something that has never, and may never 
happen. They stockpile dried foods and 

bottled water In their basements in hopes 
that they'll survive a nuclear holocaust or 
the fall of society as we know It. If It got that 
bad, who'd want to survive? 

Now I look back on that rainy Friday 
morning and think of my lethargy, my laun- 
dry and all the other things I wanted out of 
that day. 

My roomate was right. It was a good day 
to watch the soaps. 


When It comes to satisfying this basic 
human need — there are some definite eat- 
ing patterns established at Northeastern. 

Remember your first meal here? The 
cafeterias were actually clean, the work- 
ers uniforms were spotless and starched, 
and the food was reall Yes, annually the 
food service actually serves honest-to- 
goodness food: succulent roast beef, tasty 
soup du jour, perfectly baked potatoes 
with real sour cream, fresh vegetables and 
a crispy salad. Unfortunately, this fanfare 
did not last long. Soon, we were playing 
"guess what the food Is" games and were 
keeping track of who was gaining weight 
and who was becoming emaciated. 

Then, we began to search for other food 
to eat that wouldn't make us III. Huntington 
Avenue proved to be a vary Interesting 
place. Between the pizza, burgers, subs 
and Arabic foods, our stomaches were 
filled enough to satisfy us until we were 
fortunate enough to make It home for some 
of Mom and Dad's cooking. 

In the next year or so, many of us moved 
Into apartments either on or off campus. Of 
course, none of us had money, time or 
gourmet skills, so creativity became essen- 
tial. Menus Including many varieties of spa- 
ghetti and "1001 ways with chicken" were 
on our minds and in our stomaches. After a 
few months of this kind of diet, we began 
hitting the streets In search of food once 
again. The horizons broadened, and dis- 
coveries of Regina's and No-Names proved 
to be dellghtfull 

For those of us who had trouble waking 
up in the morning, the trucks parked on 
campus were an asset. They served semi- 
fresh doughnuts, candy, sandwiches and 
cold drinks to help pull us through those 
long days of classes. Their coffee wasn't 
bad eitherl 

The commuter cafeteria served their own 
brand of coffee, something akin to mud, 
along with a menu of various other Items. 
But, on a rainy day, it was a nice place to

The most dreaded week for all students 
Is undoubtedly finals week. Those five days 
at the end of the quarter seem to sneak up 
to you before you know It. And, long after 
your friends at other colleges are home on 
vacation, here you are with your nose 
buried In a book. 

We all know well in advance when finals 
week will be and yet most students are 
unprepared for the exams ahead. Nights at 
the Cask take their toll. In a desperate urge 
to catch up on the weeks worth of work, 
students everywhere end up cramming 
their brains out a few days or hours before 
a test. Drowning themselves with cups of 
strong black coffee to help keep them 
awake they search books and notes for 
Important details. The task seems impossi- 
ble as names, dates and formulas are recit- 
ed over and over again. Soon the yellow 
highlighted lines In your book start to blind 
you. It's then that you swear to yourself 

that this will never happen again . . . but, it 
always does. 

Sometimes you just know that a few 
hours of cramming aren't going to do any 
good. So, as a last resort . . . the All-Nighter. 
It consists of endless study, pots of coffee, 
speed and maybe a few slaps in the face 

by a friend as you start to doze off. Usually, 
All-nighters are best spent with friends be- 
cause you can keep each other awake. 
You can also keep each other from study- 
ing. But, at this point, what the hell, you just 
want the exam to be over. 

Trying to find a quiet place to do all this 
studying Is next to impossible at Northeas- 
tern. Dorms have "quiet hours" but those 
are often interrupted by jubilant neighbors 
who finish finals early. (And, by roomates 
who don't have a final until Thursday and 
It's basic math) The study rooms offer no 
solitude since they are invariably located 
next to the noisiest sections of the dorm, 
the game room and the laundry room. 
There's always the library, but It's always 
crowded and you practically have to take 
a number to get a seat. Finally, you settle 
Into a comfortable chair In the Ell Center 
and start to daydream after 10 minutes of 

Once the days of cramming and nights of 
staying up until 3:00 a.m. are over, Just 
when you are prepared for anything on the 
most Important exam, you may find your 
body saying no. The Inviting thought of 
sneaking a few winks In Is too hard to re- 

sist. You tell yourself that you'll just take a 
cat nap. Minutes extend into hours and 
when you wake up you are startled to dis- 
cover that your 8:00 a.m. final was three 
hours ago. 

Getting through finals week can make 
you feel like you're on a rollercoaster. You 
may ace a final one day and fall another 
the next. And, when the exams are finished 
the final order of business, selling your 
books back, can be the ultimate letdown. 
After standing In an endless line for an hour 
with 40 pounds of books In a ripped paper 
bag, the guy at the counter will hand you 
$2.50. It just doesn't seem fair especially 
when everyone knows the bookstore will 
sell those books for a good price next quar- 

There is always one good thing about 
finals week to look forward to. That's the 
celebration afterwards. Long lines form 
outside the Cask and Flagon and other lo- 
cal bars. Dorms and apartments rock with 
music while people toss their old note- 
books in the garbage. Friends get together 
to talk about vacation and co-op plans, 
anything but classes. People pack up their 
belongings and Hemenway, Forsyth and St. 
Stephens streets are lined with U-Hauls and 
station wagons. It feels good to go home 
and many may spend that first day there 
sleeping while poor Mom thinks you've 
lapsed into a coma. The battle is finally 
over and all you can do now Is pray that 
your professors will scale the grades. 


The staff of the 1983 Cauldron would like 
to use this space to say thanks to all the 
student organizations who took time out of 
their busy schedules to have their group 
portraits shot. You people have a great 
sense of humor to put up with our bizarre 
request that you "take your shoes off, take 
them all off." What can we say? Feet drive 
us crazy, and NU students seem to have the 
most beautiful feet around. (The smelliest 
too-it took the Student Activities staff in 156 
EC three weeks to air out that rooml) 


The Class of 1987 (boy do they have a 
long way to gol) Is about the second smar- 
test class ever to attend Northeastern. 
That's because these frosh, according to 
admissions records, have the second-high- 
est number of students eligible for ad- 
vanced placement In the history of NU. 

Maybe this Is because many of these 
freshmen were graduates of Sesame 
Street, the children's educational program 
that teaches basics of cognitive skills and 
social behavior. Yes, that's right In 1969, 
when Sesame Street first appeared on the 
air these frosh, at five-years-old, were the 
original target audience. 

Also, more than 30 students In the class 
of 1987, attended classes tultlon-free this 
year as the first recipients of the Carl S. Ell 
Scholar Awards. To qualify, students had to 
be recommended by their high schools and 
have combined SAT scores above 1200. 


The early 1980s fashion trends seem to 
be embracing everything but a style this 
decade can truly call Its own. Today's fash- 
Ions are so diverse, that one outfit may 
combine reference points from a multitude 
of historical eras or cultures. 

Take for Instance, some "Rebel Without a 
Cause" from the 50s, add some psychede- 
llcs from the "Age of Aquarius" 60s, and 
combine them with some remnants from 
Vietnam. This unconventional attire con- 
sists of black leather jackets and head 
bandanas, lavender shirts and khaki fa- 
tigue pants. Add to these the portable 
headsets that seem to be evolving as part 
of the human anatomy and you've got a 
look for the 80s. 

The emergence of the 1980s "free-for- 
all" styles, complimented by the revival 
fashions of days gone by, has created a 
fashion scene on campus that Is too di- 

verse to be considered polarized. 

With the countless combinations of color 
and style, there Is still plenty of room for 
Individual style and flair. 

Some dress for vanity's sake, some dress 
for success and some dress to display the 
results of the 80s growing emphasis on 
physical fitness. 

This trend of dressing for function also 
has found its niche on the fashion scene 
with styles ranging from Jeans to T-shirt 
dresses to punked-out sweats. 

These simple styles are counter-bal- 

anced by those who wear more ornamen- 
tal accessories than have digits In their stu- 
dent I.D., thus turning a simple blouse and 
Jeans combination into a showcase of fri- 
volity from head to toe. 

From headbands and legwarmers to pink 
heart stickpins and lavender heart shoe- 
laces, the list goes on and on. 

But, as we, the senior class of 1983, go on 
into the "real" world, we are daily remind- 
ed of the norms and restrictions of estab- 
lished fashion codes that only the bravest 
of us dare defy or even attempt to change. 
For now, we can sit back and remember 
our years at Northeastern, where freedom 
of choice may not have Included course 
selection or room perference in housing, 
but fashion was a personal statement that 
no one could deny us. 

So I've got the body of a 33 year-year-old 
woman. That doesn't mean I have to act 
like It. 

getting old 

The other day I took one of those silly 
little tests you find In women's magazines. 
You know how they go: pick a, b, c and 
then tally up your score and you'll find out If 
you're compatible with your mate, If you'll 
ever be a supermom or If your skin will 
clear up. 

The quiz told me I have the body of a 33- 
year-old. Now that's not so bad. It's Just 
that I'm only 22. 

You see, I always thought I was In pretty 
good shape. I happen to be one of those 
horrible human beings who can consume 
mass quantities of food without ever gain- 
ing an ounce. 

I also used to do a lot of gymnastics, 
hiking and bike touring. It left me with a set 
of knees that bear a strong resemblance to 
cauliflower, but the rest of me was okay. 

Then I went away to college and little by 
little I was doing less. Now my major form 
of exercise Is turning the pages of a book. I 
can't run around the block without collaps- 
ing, but I've got a great set of wrists. 

When I was on co-op last all my clothes 
started to shrink, or so I thought. Actually, I 
was coming down with a severe case of co- 
op spread. In other words, I gained some 
weight, but It's all behind me now. 

Of course, we're all getting old. It's just 
that you don't think about It when you're at 
a party, at the movies, on a date or In a 
study hall. It comes to you Instead when 
you get your first driver's license, when you 
pass the age of consent, when you go on 
that first bigtlme job Interview, and when 
you're standing In line at graduation wait- 
ing for your diploma. 

It hit me during the summer when all my 
friends got engaged and my mother start- 
ed telling old maid jokes. 

Maybe sometimes it would be nice to go 
back. There are some people who think 
Peter Pan had It made, he never grew up. 
But, as you may remember, he wasn't too 
happy about It. 

We're graduating from college now. Ac- 
cording to the law, some of us are adults. 
Some of us don't always act like It, but I 
guess that's what will always keep us 


"I HATE grocery shopping!" But, it is one 
of life's little chores that must be attended 
to, unless you can afford to eat out every 
night ... 

Grocery shopping is Just a royal pain In 
the neck. Either stores are so full that you 
get pushed Into the freezer while reaching 
for the Ice cream, or they're nice and emp- 
ty — and so are the shelves. It's absolutely 
no fun at all to wait one half-hour for the 
person In the deli department to wait on 
you only to find out that the sliced ham on 
special is all gone. 

For us unfortunate souls who don't have 
cars, the worst part of all might be carrying 
the stuff home. I usually shop using one of 
those little plastic hand baskets, using the 
theory, "If I can't carry this stuff to the 
checkout I'll never get It all the way home." 
This usually works but every now and then, 
I get one of those top quality bags that 
shreds before I get halfway home, and the 
remainder of the trip becomes a lesson In 

Grocery shopping may be a hassle, but 
the alternative— no food In the house— Is 
definitely enough to keep me going back 
every week. Maybe I'll buy a shopping 
cart, use my entire paycheck, and do a 
couple of weeks shopping at once . . . 


When I moved from my cozy campus cu- 
bicle Into an off-campus apartment on Mis- 
sion Hill, my friends thought I was crazy. 
They wondered what had even made me 
consider leaving such lavish facilities; with 
a built-in dining room, game room, laundry 
room, bathroom and mother (the R.A.). I 
dunno — It Just seemed like the thing to do 
at the time. 

My parents took the news of my move 
from "civilization" to the "getto" as well as 
could be expected — they flipped out. After 
all, their eldest child, the heir-apparent to 
the family wealth and fortune had chosen 
to live In a student slum. What were they 
going to tell the neighbors? 

"Tell them It's Roxbury Crossing," I said, 
"maybe they'll think you're saying West 
Roxbury Instead." 

I guess I did give up a lot of things when I 
moved out of the dorms: 

For one thing, I gave up a bunk-mate for 
my own room. Sure, I miss all 16 of her 
sleep-over boyfriends and not being able 
to sleep late because she wore clogs In the 
morning . . . but, I've learned to deal with It. 

I also surrendered my food card for the 
chance to try cooking on my own. I can 
now eat whatever I want, whenever I want 
and as much as I want. However, I didn't 
realize that this type of freedom Included 
grocery shopping and cleaning up after my 
experiments. But, I've adjusted somewhat 
to my own cooking. 

In addition to the $550 dollar per quarter 
food card, I also gave up a $1200 dollar 
quarterly housing bill. Now, for the same 
three month period, I spend one-third of 
what It costs to live and eat on campus. 
That includes a combined total of oil, rent, 
gas, electric and phone bills. Sure, it's a lot 
of Juggling of checks and Invoices, but I 
can certainly cope with the extra cash. 

What I miss most about living In the 
dorms, Is that dorms provide all that nifty 
furniture: a desk, a bureau, a bed, and 
even a set of shelves. But, like many other 
off-campus dwellers, I have learned to 
make do. It's amazing how much furniture 
you can conjure up if you are creative and 
if you plead poverty in front of members of 
your family. 

All apartment dwellers own milk cartons, 
seedy furniture from the 1950s (or from 
whatever decade your parents were first 
married) and kitchen utensils from the 
stone age. I even own a futon, an Inexpen- 
sive oriental mattress that my roommates 
make fun of (They call It a Crouton.) 

You may have to deal with ancient fix- 
tures, rotten plumbing and grouchy neigh- 
bors, but you find little extras that make it 
worthwhile. (Like having a clothesline, or 
being able to keep a pet.) 


Seventy-three-year-old Herbert Gamer 
sincerely believes that returning to college 
has Increased his longevity by allowing 
him to participate In an outside Interest. 

Gamer, an English major who has made 
the Dean's List every semester, said can- 
didly, "If I didn't walk and If I stayed home, 
I'd probably die." 

When he sold his electronics business, 
Gamer said he needed an activity that was 
demanding. "A person that's used to work- 
ing finds himself lost If he has nothing to do. 
So therefore, I came back to school," he 

After graduating from Dorchester High 
School In June of 1929, Gamer entered the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and 
majored In Communications Engineering 
for two years. However, he was forced to 
leave because of the severity of the 1929 
Depression. Most of his nights during col- 
lege were occupied by working for his fa- 
ther's radio and phonograph business. 
Therefore, Gamer said, there was not much 
time to devote to his studies. 

Gamer Inherited his father's successful 
business, but never returned to M.I.T. 

Gamer, who Is a resident of Milton, be- 
gan attending classes at Northeastern Uni- 
versity In 1978. Although he was accepted 
at Harvard and re-accepted at M.I.T., 
Gamer chose this university for one obvi- 
ous reason. "It's the easiest place to park a 
car out of the colleges around," Gamer 
said laughingly. 

He chose to major In English because he 
was bored with electronics and he Is con- 
sidering writing a book. "English Is a very 
difficult subject. It Is hard to write. I'd like to 
try to write a book. I would feel that was a 
payment for the time I put In here and the 
things I learned," he said. 

Gamer said he enjoys the poetry of Emily 
Dickinson and the works of 18th century 
writers. "I did a lot of work on John Gaye 
who was the man who wrote the Beggar's 
Opera. I have written some fiction that a 
couple of my Instructors have said Is fit to 
be published," said Gamer. 

Gamer said some of his fiction stories 
were published In Northeastern Universi- 
ty's Spectrum. 

Gamer said he finds the students very 
affable towards him. "I always talk to 

them. I am the one that brings up my age. I 
get along Just as If I was your age. At every 
class, everybody calls me Herb. They 
make you feel younger. I have made three 
or four lasting friends here," he said. 

Although he Is older than the majority of 
his professors, Gamer said the age differ- 
ence has no meaning when It comes to 
Imparting knowledge. "I envy every man 
who has knowledge that I don't have and I 
follow him because he can Impart It to me. 
As to the age difference, I wouldn't care If 
he was 15 years-old. If he could teach me, I 
am willing to learn," he said. 

However, Gamer said because of his 
age, he finds It difficult to retain some 
knowledge because of his shortened mem- 
ory. "It takes me longer to do homework. 
My memory Is shorter. I might read some- 
thing tonight and tomorrow It's gone. I 
have to do It over again. That Is the essen- 
tial difference as you age." he said. 

To compensate for that memory loss, 
Gamer said he studies harder. "You young 
people get through school at four or five 
o'clock. You want to go out with a girl. You 
want to dance. But I don't do much else but 
study," said Gamer. 

Another problem Is the amount of walk- 
ing he must do to get to class. You can't 
drive, there's no place to park. So that 
walking Is something." he said. 

Gamer's wife, whom he has been mar- 
ried to for 38 years, Is pleased that he re- 
turned to college. "She's very happy about 
It," he said. 

His wife Is the "second boss" of a whole- 
sale supply business. "And, she also does 
all my papers. She does my typing," he 

Gamer said college does not Interfere 
with his travels to other parts of the globe. 
That's because he doesn't attend classes 
during the winter quarter. "Every winter, I 
go away from the cold weather," he ad- 

Although he Is an avid traveler, Gamer's 
favorite country Is Italy. "I had a house In 
Italy, but I am sorry I sold It," he said. 

Some of his friends don't see the value of 
his returning to college. However, He has 
convinced "three or four" of his friends to 
go back to college. "Why shouldn't an 
older person go back and study In 
school?" he said. 


I had all the usual fears about living with 
a total stranger that most college freshmen 
seem to experience. However, my worries 
were quickly dispersed after living a cou- 
ple of weeks with "Polly," a very consider- 
ate and likable person. Our first quarter 
went smoothly because we had a mutual 
respect for each other's study habits and 

During our second quarter, after we re- 
turned from Christmas break, this all began 
to change as I realized Polly had a serious 
drinking problem. Her drinking started the 
first Friday night that we spent back in the 
dorms. She announced to me, "I feel like 
getting really plastered tonight," which 
she did. It was totally out of character for 
her I thought, especially since she is a very 
social person and she chose to get drunk in 
our room alone. When I came to check on 
her later I found an empty boHle of liquor 
and no Polly. She was out running around in 
the halls acting like an idiot trying to get 
attention. A few minutes later she had a 
turnabout In behavior, she began crying 
hysterically and putting herself down. It 
was very confusing for me because I never 
had to deal with anyone In this state be- 
fore. Feeling very naive and helpless, I 
watched my friend "Tony" take her back 
into our room and try to calm her down. He 
came out a little while later telling me not 
to worry; she had personal problems that 
were battling her nerves and she only 
needed someone to talk to. Then he asked 
me to leave her alone until she could fall 

The next morning when I spoke to her she 
told me that she never wanted to get drunk 
like that again. I know she really regretted 
her behavior and felt embarrassed. Right 
then I made the mistake of believing I could 
help her handle her problems. She told me 
many things about her life at home and 
personal tragedies that I wish I'd never 
heard. I hoped, however, that she would 
come to me Instead of trying to drink her 
problems away. 

That Friday night was only the start. She 
spent many other weekends and school 
nights In the same condition, leaning on all 
her friends Including me, and expecting us 
to be there for her whenever she started 
crying. I tried to understand her drinking 
and her problems but they Just didn't seem 
logical to me. Whenever I tried to help her 
she would only hurt me again by getting 
drunk and I was fast losing my patience. 


One night when Polly was drunk, I was 
walking her around outside the dorm and 
she got really sick In front of our housing 
director. She spent most of the night with us 
trying to comfort Polly, and I must admit, 
she saw Polly at her very worst. 

After that night, Polly and I both realized 
something very Important. Polly finally ad- 
mitted that she had a problem with her 
drinking and I admitted that I couldn't live 
with her anymore. I knew that I did not 
have the professional training or the matur- 
ity to cope with someone that has emotion- 
al problems like my roommate. 

After talking to the resident director, we 
both agreed that It would be best for the 
two of us to separate for the next quarter. I 
knew that If I continued to live with her 
complaining and hostile attitude that I 
would suffer as much as she was. 

After I left Polly, she seemed to be doing 
much better. Every time I saw her, she 
would tell me how long she had been "on 
the wagon." But I still worried about her, 
and I worried that she might start drinking 
again at any time. 

We lost touch after a while, with co-op 
and all that. The last I heard, Polly had 
dropped out of school and had taken a turn 
for the worse . . . 


The way we see It, there's only one way 
to deal with Herpes. You can't get rid of It 
forever. Once you have It It's yours and no 
one wants to share It with you. 

There's only one solution. Give It to some- 
one. That's right, let everybody have their 
very own personal case of those embar- 
rassing moments with the opposite sex. 

There's only one problem. Who's going to 
line up for the first shot? 


Posters went up, meetings were called, 
supporters gathered, and the crusade be- 
gan. Wayne Kirk's (ME, '82) dream became 
a reality with the extraordinary teamwork 
of fellow undergraduates and the guidance 
of mechanical engineering department 
chairman Dr. Richard J. Murphy. Recent 
advancements In materials and manufac- 
turing techniques of lightweight sports 
equipment has led our familiar bicycle to 
take new shapes, anticipated to exceed 
70 mph. 

This yearlong project began with months 
of researching, designing, and testing 
which more clearly defined the needs of 
the project. Through creative efforts In en- 
gineering, planning and financing, a four 
person, 40 foot long, space age tricycle 
was built. 

Final design dimensions, computer de- 
veloped by Hank Thldemann (Eng, '82), en- 
abled Jan Aase (ME '83) to direct the vehi- 
cles unl-body construction using Dupont's 
KEVLAR and NOMEX products. The shell, 
built In two symmetrical halves, allowed 
Ron Andrews (ME, '84) to easily Install the 
network of Shlmano's cycling components. 
Battling the Inherent stability problems, Pe- 
ter Crllly (ME '83) carefully mounted the 
Beacon Street bicycle shop's custom built 

The last weeks of construction continued 

with the team working around the clock. 
Gary Carr (ME, '86) applied the finish coat 
of paint and the team left for the west 
coast. The vehicle was carefully disassem- 
bled Into three sections, permitting Flying 
Tiger's airfreight service to readily trans- 
port It to Los Angeles. The 17 member stu- 
dent team rested as they flew with Eastern 
Airlines and carefully planned their race 

The Tensor's first race was not to be a 
record breaking run, but many new materi- 
al applications, design concepts, and con- 
struction techniques proved themselves 
under race conditions. The Tensor's second 
race has a mid- 1983 scheduled date, 
where the group will attempt to break the 
three year standing record of 62.93 mph.

Many of us have thought about living 
with a guy, but hold back because we 
know that our parents would probably dis- 
own us. But, how about In a "Just friends" 
relationship? It's something that Is becom- 
ing more popular and more accepted 
among today's changing social patterns. 
And, believe me, It can be an experience 
worth considering. 

The Initial shock to your parents can 
come In various forms, but basically It 
starts with anger or Indifference. Then, 
after you convince them that you and your 
roomie are "Just pals," hopefully they'll lis- 
ten long enough for you to explain your 
living arrangement. 

In some cases, the "his" towels seem to 
evolve overnight. For example: he's your 
roommate's boyfriend (let her explalnl) 
and he's Just staying here until he finds his 
own place. Or, you can't afford to move 
without another roommate and he's the 
only one available. 

But other times, you select to live togeth- 
er because of the compatibility In living 
styles and personalities. The plus of having 

mixed roommates before you choose your 
place Is that some landlords prefer this ar- 
rangement, and finding an apartment Is 
that much easier. But, the reverse can also 
be true, because some landlords like to see 
the marriage license for personal reasons. 

It helps If you are friends first, of course. 
Otherwise the dirty socks on the sofa, 
sneaker tracks across the kitchen floor or 
empty beer bottles from three days ago 
might get on your nerves. I'm speaking 
from the female point of view, so I'm sure 
the guys will have something to say about 
the panty hose In the bathroom, 24-hour 
soap operas, and the constantly busy 
phone. (Call-waiting Is a social life-saver!) 
But, friends can work out a compromise. 

Stereotyplcally, guys are great for taking 
out the garbage, fixing things, carrying the 
laundry (which will amount to more loads- 
per-week than you thought possible If you 
decide to do It together) and accompany- 
ing you to the store for midnight munchles. 

Like any other roommate, one of the op- 
posite gender offers friendship and com- 
pany and helps to pay the bills. But, the 
best part about living with a male friend Is 
the openness you can share without the 
threat of romantic Involvement. You can 
talk about other guys and girls with an 
ease that comes from the absense of com- 
petition between you. It's fun to Joke with 
them, and fix them up with someone. And, 
they make great "boyfriends" to use when 
you want to discourage unwanted ad- 
vances. And, as long as It's not during a 
football game, they'll listen to your prob- 
lems from their point of view, which Is 
sometimes better than another girl's. Guys 
can be unbiased and extremely frank, es- 
pecially If you help them In the same way. 

If you can overcome the "living togeth- 
er" stigma that some people may hassle 
you with, living platonlcally boy /girl style 
can be fun and It gives you both a good 
Idea of your compatibility with the oppo- 
site sex, as well as an Inside view on how 
the other side lives and thinks. 

The first question that I usually here Is, 
"You're klddlngl are they cute?" That's 
when I realize people don't understand. 
They think It's a brothel (or whorehouse, 
whichever you prefer). It's one wild orgy 
after another. Wrong. 

In case you haven't figured It out yet, I 
live with four girls. I know, "You're klddlngl 
Are they cute?" But It Isn't that. In fact It's 
Just the opposite. 

I don't mean they aren't cute. They are. 
But not In the morning when they get up 
with their hair all over the place, bags un- 
der their eyes and breath that would knock 
your socks off. They kind of remind me of 
Frankenstein's mother. 

There are some good things about living 
with girts . .. and, as soon as I think of them 
I'll let you know. Unless you get up at the 
crack of dawn, you get cold water. O.K., 
I'm a man, I can take It. It's a good wake- 
me- up. Then when It's time to go to school, 
are they ready to leave at a reasonable 
time? Two chances. 

When they are finally ready, It's like 
they've been up for hours. All cheerful. 
Happy. Makes me sick. But, I can't use the 
bathroom. It's always busy. Just like the 

Oh, the phone. Although I own one-sixth 
of It (there Is another guy who lives there, 
too, but It's not his story), I don't get one- 
sixth of It. I get It anytime between the 
hours of 4:00 a.m. and 4:25 a.m. Any other 
time Is pot luck. 

Which leads me Into food. (Pot luck- 
—food, pretty slick, huh?) Food Is another 
Interesting subject at our place. Let me tell 

you, these girls eat . . . It's unbelievable 
how these girls eatl They go from practical- 
ly nothing (Beth and Sue), to average (Eli- 
zabeth), to mass quantities (Diane). Diane 
has to be seen to believed. She Is tall, not 
heavy, but eats and eats and eats, etc. 
She'll eat a snack, dinner, desert, rest for a 
minute and then start again. But, she 
doesn't get fat, although she thinks she's 
as big as a house, which I think Is pretty 

That's another thing these girls are al- 
ways talking about: their weight. "Oh I'm 
so fat." "Oh, I'm such a whale." "Pretty 
soon, someone Is going to stick 'Wide 
Load' on my butt." That's all these girls talk 
aboutl (When they're not on the phone, of 

Probably the worst girl In the whole place 
Is Casey. She's the cat. Well, she's Beth's 
cat. Or Is she Diane's. Well, she's certainly 
not mine. Anyway, she's every man's 
dream. She's In heat three weeks out of 
four, follows the guys around and peeks In 
my room through the cracks In the door. 
Now, If she were only a little taller . . . 

But, all In all, we get along well. The girls 
look at me as "Dad" (couldn't that Just 
make you throw up? But, not In the bath- 
room, It's always occupied). We sit around 
and talk "girl talk" and sometimes "boy 
talk" when I can get a word In edgewise. 
Not too often. 

I like my roommates and I like where I 
live. We get along very well and enjoy 
each other's company. But, I'm still trying 
to get a word In edgewise, some time other 
than 4:25 a.m.

What do men want? 

Freud once asked a similar question re- 
garding the motives of another sex. He was 
never able to answer it. 

Not long ago I found a copy of "Nutshell" 
(The Magazine For the College Community) 
on my desk. Its cover story Intrigued me. 
There was pictured on the cover a comely 
coed and her male counterpart, eyeing 
each other coyly from behind textbooks. In 
large white type above them ran the ques- 
tion, "Can you find true love on campus?" 

True love? I can't even find my calcula- 

After thumbing my way to page 41 I dis- 
covered two stories on the subject. One, 
written by a woman, told the female col- 
lege student's point of view. The second 
piece was written by a man and of course, 
gave the male's view. 

The women Interviewed in "What Wom- 
en Want," tell horror stories of their first 
parties In all-male dorms, where everyone 
Is drunk and slobbering, and complain 
about the men who are only after One 

While that first article seems to tell more 
of what women don't want, the second arti- 
cle gets more to the point. THEY tell us what 
THEY want. Get a load of this: 

"... a strong, stylish, gorgeous woman 
with thick long hair and good skin and 
brains, with a sense of humor and some 
class, with long, long legs for the leg men 
and a general firmness to all her parts; a 
woman who puts out on the first, second, or 
maybe-third-but-no-later date, who loves 
unlnhibitedly and passionately, and who 
provides a little Mystery and Excitement." 
That, according to the author, Is the 
male fantasy of the Ideal campus woman. 

Seriously, where Is this woman? She cer- 
tainly doesn't live In my neighborhood. 
Most men will probably find her in part, but 
certainly never the whole package. 

And what about the Ideal campus male? 
Where is He? Would he ask me out? Is he 
listed In the phone book? 

All women have their favorite type of 
men, the ones they hope to see waiting for 
them at the bar when they walk Into the 
Cask. Let me see If I can draw up a com- 
posite of this man. 

He Is Intelligent and has a good sense of 
humor. He Is sensitive to what women 
want, but not overly. He has firm muscles 
on his arms and legs, but he certainly 
shouldn't be the body-builder type. He has 
nice buns. He cares about things, especial- 
ly things relative to a relationship. He likes 
to go out but can take a quiet evening at 
home . . He's creative, honest, spontane- 
ous, and passionate. 

He won't push for that One Thing. He 
doesn't brag about past conquests. He re- 
members to call and won't forget your 
phone number. He Is not a Jerk. 

Which brings me to the 98 percent rule, a 
little addage brought to my attention dur- 
ing a heated discussion of men. The rule 
states that 98 percent of men are Jerks and 
the remaining two percent have the capa- 
bility of becoming Jerks. (Jerk Is a substi- 
tute for another work that the editor-ln- 
chlef forbids me to use In this column.) 

Like the Ideal woman, he probably 
doesn't exist, at least not In this time zone. 
He's nice to dream about, though. And I still 
look for him amongst floundering con- 


You see, there are few good men left. 
They all want It, and expect you to give It 
to them. They all have old girlfriends who 
come crawling out of the woodwork like 
cockroaches. They all forget to call. 

Oh, Lord. What do men want? 


When Marie Phillip teaches her Deaf Cul- 
ture course, she must bring an Interpreter 
with her to class. Not because her students 
are deaf — but, because she Is deaf and 
her students are hearing you see, her stu- 
dents need the Interpreter to translate her 
signed lectures Into spoken English for 

For Philip, who has been accustomed to 
"malnstreamlng" In which the Interpreter 
translates spoken lectures Into ASL for deaf 
students, It's like teaching In a "reverse 

"It was awkward and strange teaching 
the course at first . . .," said Philip, "... but 
It was nlcel" 

The Deaf Culture course Is the most re- 
cent addition to the curriculum of the 
American Sign Language Program here at 
NU. It was first offered last spring. 

The course objective, according to the 
syllabus, Is to develop an understanding of 
the Issues and makeup of the deaf commu- 
nity and provide students with the "tools" 
to understand other cultures as well. 

"Any culture course Is like a two-way mir- 
ror; you look at other people and you learn 
about yourself," said Philip. 

Philip teaches about deaf culture from a 
deaf person's perspective rather than from 
"society's perspective." 

"For example, society thinks of the deaf 
as handicapped, but the Insiders (the 
deaf) don't consider themselves handi- 
capped," said Philip. She said she tries to 
share how deaf people view the world In 
general, focusing on how they think and 
Interpret events within a hearing world. 

According to Philip, her major teaching 
hurdle Is making students aware that deaf 
culture exists and that within the deaf com- 
munity there are many diverse subcultures. 

"Students see the deaf community as a 
whole, they don't realize that there are 
groups within the culture . . . But, many of 
the students don't understand. So I try to 
show that all hearing are not the same and 
I use a minority as the example of another 
culture and transfer those principles." 

Philip also teaches culture awareness by 
using personal stories and examples. 

Required reading for the course consists 
of two textbooks and an assigned reading 
list with some 38 articles. It Is also required 
that students go on two field trips to deaf 
clubs, workshops, schools or plays. In addi- 
tion to this, each student must keep a Jour- 
nal to record comments about each lec- 
ture, field trip, video presentation and dis- 

Some students who take Deaf Culture 
have previously taken conversational ASL 
courses, however It Is not a requirement, 
said Philip. 

When she Is not teaching for the Sign 
Language Program, Philip is a student, at- 
tending classes In both linguistics and an- 
thropology at NU. Her goal Is to graduate 
with a double major. 

How does It work out being a teacher 
and a student? 

It works out to a crazy schedule," said 

In addition to Deaf Culture, the Sign Lan- 
guage Program offers ASL 1 & 2, Intermedi- 
ate ASL 1 & 2, a sign Interpreting course, a 
summer interpreting program, and an inter- 
preter teacher training course. 

According to Cathy Cogen, Director of 
the Sign Language Program, close to 3000 
students have taken classes within the pro- 
gram since NU started offering ASL courses 
In 1975. 


Nothing is so Impermanent as Imperma- 

Not a very profound statement at first 
glance, but consider it In terms of human 

If as I suggest, the 80s are the era of 
achievement, then young people are 
urged, almost pushed, to succeed at all 
they attempt. Considering all that's going 
on in the world today — the unstable world 
economy, threat of nuclear war and the 
generally questionable status quo which 
exists— this achievement drive could be 
seen as a drive for survival. 

But, again consider this in terms of hu- 
man relationships. If people are Instilled 
with this drive for achievement In their busi- 
ness lives, then It must spill over Into their 
personal lives. 

When two young people decide to be- 
come a couple, they should not be under 
pressure to make it work. They have years 
ahead of them In which to spend their lives. 

But today, when two people go out more 
than three times, It Is automatically as- 
sumed that they are seeing — and sleeping 
with— no one else. This relationship is 
closed whether they want It to be or not. 

Unnatural pressure Is put on people In 
contemporary relationships since when 
they break up they must deal not only with 
the usual sense of loss from such an occur- 
ance but also with a sense of failure In not 
having made the relationship work. 

People have been feeling and dealing 
with the emotional loss from a failed rela- 
tionship since man began pairing off. It Is a 
natural and educational part of life. But, 
this sense of failure Is an unneeded pres- 
sure and the most devastating part of to- 
day's relationships. 

If I were an Idealist I would say that one 
should be truthful and fair In a relationship. 
This way both people would grow and 
learn from each other and even If the rela- 
tionship broke up, both would have suc- 
ceeded at becoming better people. 

But, let's face It folks, we're dealing with 
the real world here, and anyone will tell 
you, the only way to succeed In the real 
world Is to keep your opponents on their 


Notice here that I said opponents 
—plural, with an "s", as in more than one. 
This is an Important Idea when It comes to 
keeping the upper hand In relationships. 
I'm sick of hearing about that fidelity crap. 
The only way to keep a relationship stable 
today Is to have more than one so you 
won't get bored so easily. 

"Deceltl Foul Playl" I hear all you ideal- 
ists cry. Sure what I advise Is deceit but 
we're talking survival here, not playing 

This then Is my method for self-preserva- 
tion In love: Let your lovers know only one- 
third of what you actually do and none of 
what you think. 

Follow this advice and you'll always 
have the upper hand In a relationship, es- 
pecially If you let your lovers think they do. 


I'm here 

"I'm here, count me in!" 

Besides struggling to pay astronomical 
tuition bills each quarter we were In school, 
we were required to struggle through at 
least 120 registration cards during our five 
year ordeal. 

Finally, we are free of this tedious task 
which began during our freshman year. 

For 11 quarters — count 'em — we have 
filled out the same stupid cards. At first, we 
printed them very carefully, right down to 
the middle initial of our mother's name. As 
we grew more familiar with the process, we 
began to abbreviate everything. Surely the 
registrar's would understand that "P" 
meant Portland, Maine and that "P" meant 
Peabody . . . 

The most Important card in your entire 
packet was the "count me In" card. Of 
course, everybody liked to be counted In, 
especially if you had paid your tuition. 
Right now, probably all 11 of these cards 
are lying In the bottom of some dusty file 
drawer In the office of the Alumni Associ- 

The four or five schedule cards you filled 
out were also Important. That's why you 
received all those calls from the registrar's 
office and your coop advisor during those 
five years. 

A student favorite was "destroy this card 
If your address Is correct." We usually 
couldn't decide if we should destroy It on 
the spot or save It for later. Students did 
both, because the tiny fragments of the or- 

ange cards littered the floor of the registra- 
tion room and turned up during finals week 
when It fell out of the book you hadn't 
opened since registration. 

The "religious preference" card was an- 
other gem. It was also a violation of priva- 
cy. Old you ever wonder why the members 
of the administration were concerned with 
your religious beliefs? Many packets were 
returned without this vital Information. 

For the past 11 quarters, all we received 
at every registration were numb hands and 
sweaty palms. Those of us who had our 
packets lost may have gotten a blessing In 


This space Is alotted to say "thank you" 
to the people who have the rather unpleas- 
ant task of keeping the buildings clean. The 
Cauldron staff especially thanks the Jani- 
tors shown below, who pretended to under- 
stand our crazy requests NOT to sweep the 
floors during deadline times .... and who 
also helped a certain MisManaglng editor 
who'd locked herself out of the office at 
11:30 one nlghtl 

jock meal 

It's like no other dining experience on 
campus . . . tood In unlimited amounts . . . 
you're surrounded by the trim, muscular 
bodies ot men and women athletes. 

Sound like a heavenly health spa? 

Guess again. 

You're sitting in the basement of Smith 
Hall, (not exactly world reknowned for its 
ambiance) watching NU athletes shovel in 
their dinner. 

It's THE place where the elite meet to eat 
and converse after their sweaty evening 
workouts. Proper attire required: sweats, 
gym bag and sneakers. (But don't worry, 
they seldom eat oriental style.) 

One of the highlights of jock meal, is that 
you can get as much food as you want the 
first time through the line, unlike the dormi- 
tories where you have to make six trips for 
one chicken wing. 

What? Do I hear some of you dorm resi- 
dents crying, "Unfair, unfairl?" Just re- 
member, athletes' chicken wings come 
from the same Institution yours do — they 
may get unlimited amounts, but that's be- 
cause they're eating your leftovers. 

Ah Yes . . . the pleasures of "jock meal." 
But, don't let the name take away any of 
the romance. You can still meet some of 
the finest people on campus there, and 
some of the finest athletes. 

Just try to think of It like they do: the 
"After-Hours Athletes' Dining Club." 


If you're an NU student who's just crazy 
about coffee, then you've probably got the 
majority of the campus "Java Joints" all 
staked out — you know when they make a 
fresh tank of the stuff and you know where 
the lines are short. 

According to a random sampling of stu- 
dents here, even the average coffee drink- 
er, who's trying to stay awake or stay 
warm, has a favorite spot. 

Many of these students think the best 
coffee around can be had at Achilles, 1;ie 
mobile snack shop that Is located In the 
parking lot next to Churchill Hall. 

If convenience Is a factor — most stu- 
dents say the "mud" In the commuter cafe- 
teria will do. It was voted as the "quickest 

stop between classes." 

Others said that they'd walk a mile for a 
cup of coffee at Danny's Dell located on 
Huntington avenue. Fortunately, they only 
had to walk over to the other side of the 

Another popular spot for coffee, is the 
"Y" cafeteria on Huntington avenue. It's 
patronized most frequently by those stu- 
dents who live there, and all they have to 
do to make their 9:15 In the "Y" basement 
is roll out of bed and stumble into the cafe- 
teria. Now that's convenience. 


When the Kariotis building on Greenleaf 
street opened In April 1982, It was simply 
called "Classroom" or CL in the Northeas- 
tern book of building abbreviations. "CL" 
added 13 classrooms to the university. 

It is a mark of architectural beauty 
among the hallowed halls of gray, with its 
panels of glass overlooking the Museum of 

Fine Arts and the newly constructed plaza. 

Kariotis Hall is the first project completed 
under The Century Fund, Northeasten's 
five-year 43 million dollar fund-raising ef- 

The building was dedicated and named 
on December 5 in honor of George S. Kario- 
tis and his wife Ellen. He was graduated 
from Northeastern In 1944 with a bache- 
lor's degree In engineering. Kariotis also is 
vice chairman of the Century Fund and 
chairman of the Engineering Center cam- 
paign of the Century Fund. 

He founded Alpha industires, an elec- 
tronic firm, In 1962. He was the company's 
chairman when he took a leave of absence 
to become secretary of Economic Affairs 
under Governor Edward J. King. 

Kariotis has played a major role in the 
formation of the Bay State Skills Corp. and 
the Massachusetts Technology Parks 
Corp., both of which are intended to pro- 
mote cooperation between business and 
educational Institutions. 


It's bad enough when a prof Is wrong. It's 
even worse If some know-it-all In the class 
Is always right. 

Now there's nothing wrong with being 
right. But, It can become a problem If It's 

We all know them — Wlseasslus amerl- 
canus — the kids who do nothing but study 
or write papers that always get A's. They 
don't hold down part-time jobs, they don't 
party (unless you can call a can of Sprite 
and a bag of chips a party), their parents 
take care of shopping and cleaning (most 
live at home), their bladders never need 
operation, they will not eat until their 
graduation parties In June. 

We do not like them. 

In grade school they would have been 
called "smarty pants" or some equally de- 
scriptive term. They always had the an- 
swer when nobody else In the class would 
raise their hands. 

They took notes In sex ed class. 

But even as adults In college, we still 
have to put up with them. They haven't 
changed all that much. Some know-lt-alls 
could have been the models for the "Are 
you a nerd?" poster. Others blend Into the 

I can take It If they Just always know the 
answer. But It's worse when they know 
they know. That's when you want to shove 
a slide rule Into one of their nostrils and 
perhaps prevent them from ever holding a 
pencil again. 

But take heart. Sooner or later the know- 
it-all will be out of school and Into the REAL 

Lotsa luck, suckers. 

king husky 

Northeastern University adopted the 
nickname Huskies In 1927 and the first 
Husky appeared on campus March 4 of 
that year. He had come to Boston's North 
Station by train from Alaska and was greet- 
ed by more than 100 students and the uni- 
versity band. Classes were cancelled for 
the afternoon and he was paraded with 
police escort for the four miles to the cam- 
pus. He was presented with an Honorary 
Degree by the university president and 
named King Husky. His real name had been 
Sapsut and his lineage was sled dog royal- 

ty. His first athletic event was a track meet 
In which Northeastern set three school re- 
cords and was the decisive victor. King 
Husky I reigned for 14 years. His successors 
have appeared at countless athletic 
events, been the subject of television 
shows, and have won many honors at the 
most prestigious kennel club shows. The 
current King Husky Is the seventh. 


The other night, I was awakened from a 
sound sleep by my radiator. Although at 
first I didn't know It was my radiator be- 
cause It sounded more like a pervert 
breathing heavily under my bed. 

But, was I worried that an Intruder could 
have broken Into my home? Heck no: I've 
got a police lock on my front door. 

It's often a topic of conversation during 
parties or when company comes. You'd be 
surprised how many people have never 
seen or heard of the Manhattan lock. 

Most of them have probably never need- 
ed one. I do. 

You see, I was robbed once. I lost a tele- 
vision set, camera equipment, even a spl- 
toon. The Intruder even went through my 
underwear drawer. Nothing Is sacred to 
people who have the nerve to go through 
other people's things and break Into other 
people's domiciles for personal profit. 

It was more than a robbery, It was a vio- 

In this city, as In many others, the lock or 
locks on the front door are as common as 
closet space and kitchen sinks. We close 
ourselves In out of fear. We lock our doors 
to protect both our bodies and our televi- 
sion sets. 

Alarm systems, guard dogs, bolts and 
police locks are utilized to keep people 
out. You'd think they know better. 

And, It's not Just the neighborhood. 
Whether you live In Grove Hall or on Bea- 
con Hill, you could be a candidate for a B & 
E (breaking and entering) and you'll need a 
P.L. (police lock). 

And, exactly what Is a police or Manhat- 
ten lock, you ask? 

The lock Is like a dead bolt In the way It's 

attached to the door except that there's a 
long metal pole that protrudes up from the 
floor and Into the lock. The door can still be 
opened easily without Interference (al- 
though I have a tendency to trip over the 
pole when I'm stumbling around In the 

It may seem like a pain, but I feel safe 
when I'm locked In and I feel safe when I 

Now If I could Just get up the courage to 
open the door. 



When you applied to Northeastern, they 
did not mention that you would be standing 
on line for five years. After carefully 
searching through the brochure, I could not 
find one picture of a line. 

I remember my first day here. There was 
a line to park the car to move Into the dor- 
mitory. Then there was a line to get the 
keys to open the room and a line to get Into 
the elevator. Soon It was I.D. time with a 
line for food cards and another line for food 
(or salmonella poisoning). 

Registration day soon arrived. The line In 
front of the Cashier's office never seemed 
to move. Let us not even discuss the Bur- 
sar's office line. 

There was a line to register for classes, 
and of course those of us who never regis- 
tered (and subsequently paid a $25 fee In 
1982-3) were never seen or heard from 
after we entered the Ballroom madhouse. 

Work-study was always a Joy. Their lines 
always amazed me. 

The Bookstore Is famous for lines. During 
registration week, the store turns Into Fl- 
lene's basement II. 

I have always wondered why the school 
never Installed a traffic light In the tunnel. 
You know, that area between Dodge and 
Hayden, in front of the bookstore. On days 
when the weather was undesirable, the 
area had potential for a riot. Many of times 
I found myself caught In the middle, ulti- 
mately late for class with the excuse "I got 
stuck In tunnel traffic". 

Down the hall a little ways, the computer 
center always attracts multitudes of stu- 
dents. Once you finally get into the room, 
the system Is so overloaded you have to 
wait on line again for computer's attention. 

The housing deposit is another pain. If 
your contract was not In on time, you were 
put on another line, a waiting list. 

The lines at the Lane Health Center are 
the most frustrating. If you were sick, they 
told you to notify someone Immediately, 
but by the time they found your folder and 
a doctor could see you, rigor mortis set In. 

Well guys, you think these days of wait- 
ing on line are over? Not quite, Just remem- 
ber that there is another line to get your 


There's another epidemic In this country. 
During the past few months I've found It 
hitting closer and closer to home. 

This particular disorder tends to strike 
both men and women In their early to mid 
20's. It's not unusual, however, for older 
and sometimes younger people to become 

Great numbers are afflicted In the spring 
when honeysuckle hangs heavy In the air, 
the breezes are balmy and fresh, the skies 
are pure azure, and the moons always 
seem full. 

This sickness breeds on springtime and 
evening walks along beaches and under 
pines. It preys on the young in the back 
seats of cars. It ripens when jewelry stores 
have sales. It will open and fester at the 
mere mention of rice. 

Marriage is alive and growing — again. 

It may seem downright ridiculous to 
speak of marriage this way. Actually It's 
rather odd. But so many people I know — 
close friends, relatives, and co-workers — 
have been stricken by nuptials, that I be- 
gan to wonder If there was something fun- 
ny In their drinking water. 

I think It all started last summer when a 
close friend asked me to be a member of 
her bridal party. Of course at the time I was 
thrilled, but not too surprised. Sally had 
been talking about getting married for 
some time and she had just set the date. 

After Sally had her bridal shower in the 
spring, things began to take a turn for the 

Sal got some beautiful nightgown sets 
from her mother and sister. After all the 
hoopla, my mother discreetly took me 
aside and told me If I hurried up and got 
engaged, she'd buy me some pretty pei- 
gnoir sets, too. 

The next thing I knew, my roommate had 
gotten a diamond from her boyfriend and 
was starting to make out guest lists. 

Another one had bitten the dust. 

Another old friend from home had me on 
the phone for two hours one night telling 
me about her wedding plans for next year. 

The real clincher came when someone 
who I never thought would marry so soon, 
knocked on my door at 7:30 one morning 
and shoved a 1/3 of a carat at my face. 

I ran to check the cellar for pods. 

Now there's really nothing wrong with 
marriage. The whole Idea of a permanent, 
loving bond between two people Is won- 

derful. And it Is an Institution, despite the 
forementloned, which I hope to enter some- 

I Just find It startling that so many people 
I know are getting married now. And it's 
too many, too soon, for me to handle. 

Some people might say I'm jealous. Hon- 
estly, I'm not. My mother, a wonderful 
woman years ahead of her time (and her- 
self), brought her daughter up stressing 
freedom and Independence. She taught 
me never to let a man push me around. 
And she taught me the old one-two. 

And she married later than her contem- 
poraries because, as she told my sisters 
and me, she was too busy having a good 

That's Just how I feel. Right now I'm too 
busy learning to take care of myself, and 
trying to have a good time, to watch a 
husband try to take care of us both. 

Before I see a ring, I want to see a diplo- 

To all my friends, and anyone else who's 
grown up enough to get hitched, I wish you 

Oh, by the way. Remember Sally's wed- 
ding? She got married last weekend, and I 
have to say I was a beautiful bridesmaid. It 
was also a bitchln' good time, despite the 

But I think I better watch myself carefully 
during the next few months. 

Guess who caught bouquet? 


How many times have you tried to ex- 
plain how the co-op system works and giv- 
en up halfway through? The majority of 
these descriptions occur during middler 
year, as people naturally wonder If 
"middler" Is some sort of Incurable dis- 

Being a middler Is like being out In the 
middle of the ocean In the doldrums; you 
know where you've been and where you 
want to go, but all you can see for miles 
around you Is vast desolation. You just roll 
with what little flow there is without a pad- 
dle and perhaps an albatross or two hang- 
ing around your neck. 

The problem with mlddlers Is that they 
think that they've finally figured out how to 
take advantage of the system when In re- 
ality they're hopelessly tangled In the web, 
stuck In the middle, and remain that way 
until graduation. 

Mlddlers often experience what Is known 
at Northeastern as mlddler-life crisis. This 
condition Is characterized by a lack of self 
accomplishment so far In their educational 
careers. After a crude self analysis they 
believe themselves to be total failures. The 
grass looks greener on the other side, so 
they Jump the fence into another field only 
to land In the prickly bushes. 

Mlddler year does end, eventually. But 
when all your friends are entering their sen- 
ior years, seeing the light at the end of the 
tunnel, you're still back In the tunnel won- 
dering If there IS an end . . . 




When I get home every day I get a feel- 
ing of suspense as I dash to my mailbox In 
expectation of all the mall I "should be 
receiving" from family and friends. This Is 
usually followed by a return to reality as I 
realize that the mailbox Is empty. 

Why do people seem to thrive on receiv- 
ing mall? It probably has something to do 
with the feeling of Importance we have 
when there's a pile of envelopes In the 
mailbox. It also gives us the feeling that 
we're being thought of. Some people will 
subscribe to magazines, write to people 
they hardly know, or even Intentionally get 
onto some Junk mailing lists Just to keep the 
cobwebs out of the mailbox. 

It's really quite silly to get so excited 
about receiving mall . . . nine times out of 
ten the envelope contains a bill. The other 
ten percent of the time the mall Isn't for you 
after all. Then, at those miraculous times 
when you do receive a letter from someone 
you know, It only means that now YOU 
have to write a letterl 



"What do you mean you 
didn't get your yearbook 
picture taken?" 


1983 Seniors: Do it for Moml Most of you 
will bo quite happy to never see that ad 
agalnl There have been many comments In 
regard to our choice of slogan to advertise 
senior portrait sittings. You have to ad- 
mit — we got your attention I Our point was 
to make our slogan so well known that as 
soon as you saw "Do It for Mom," you knew 
senior portraits were happening again. 
(Unfortunately some of you had trouble 
with the meaning of the words "Last 
Chance . . .") 

Why do It for Mom? Well, why not? Face 
It, (no pun Intended) we all have one cer- 
tain person that has cared about us, been 
there to listen or give advice, made sacri- 
fices for us, and has shared In the happy 
and sad times with us. 

Perhaps for some people, this person Is 
not our biological mother, but who said you 
had to take our slogan so literally? Come 
on, there has to be at least one special 
person In your life who would be very upset 
with you If you didn't have your FREE senior 
portrait taken to at least have your picture 
In your FREE Cauldron yearbook. That's the 
Mom we're talking about . . . 

Why not say "Do It for your family" or 
"Do It for that special someone?" Sim- 
ple — It wouldn't fit on our posters. 


Moving Is an experience that we have all 
faced at some point during our college ca- 
reers. Leaving the place that you've grown 
to know as "Home" can be exciting and a 
bummer at the same time. Being at NU 
sometimes means that every time you 
switch from school to co-op or back again 
you must rent a U-Haul and chase cock- 
roaches out of your new room. And, some 
of us consider ourselves completely ready 
to go Into the moving business after our 
college adventures In relocating. (So just 
put It on your resumel) 

Probably the most unpleasant part of 
moving Is packing, particularly after hav- 
ing lived In the same place for a period of 
time and accumulating lots of little things. 
Naturally you haven't left yourself much 
time to move, so the packing Is rushed. 

There are basically two directions to 
take when It comes to packing. There's the 
"pack-rat" method and the "oh hell, throw 
It away" method. Obviously both have 
their advantages and disadvantages. Or- 
ganization Is highly unlikely at this point In 
the game. Heaven help the person with the 

"where did I put " syndrome during the 

packlng/movlng/settllng In period. 

There Is always the danger of running out 
of boxes to put all the unexpected extra 
stuff In. It has been proven beneficial to try 
putting clothes In garbage bags to save 
boxes. Also try to keep In mind Murphy's 

Law of Moving #64: "The box bottom 
which falls out first will be the box with all 
of your most precious belongings." 

Moving day Is always full of surprises. 
One of the surprises you should save until 
the people who promised to help you have 
already pitched In: "Oh, you mean I ne- 
glected to tell you that I was moving to the 
fifth floor and there's no elevator? It must 
have slipped my mlndl" Another surprise Is 
that you really aren't In top physical condi- 
tion after all— and In the process you dis- 
cover 500 of your 600 musclesl 

Some surprises wait until after you've 
moved In. You and your other two roo- 
mates unpack to discover you have kitch- 
en times three . . .("I knew we should've 
made lists of what we hadl") And, even 
though the landlord said, "No pets al- 
lowed," you find out one came with the 
apartment as your roommate shrieks from 
the other room "A MOUSEII" In addition, 
you find other pests — the Back Bay area 
without cockroaches would be like Maine 
without trees. 

There are other minor quirks about the 
place, like discovering the bar In your clos- 
et was put In right against the back wall, 
and learning the hard way that your oven If 
off by 15 degrees. 

Slowly and surely you begin to get set- 
tled In — the walls, shelves, tables and floor 
become covered with your belongings. 
Then you can relax, and try not to think 
about the possibility of having to do It all 
again In three months .... 


Mononucleosis can be a devastating Ill- 
ness, and It Is a common one among col- 
lege students because of the stressful 
schedules many must keep. Here, one 1983 
senior recounts his battle with the disease. 

"Six months of classes and holding a 
part time Job were taking Its toll on me, 
both mentally and physically. The winter 
quarter was the hardest and most Intense 
quarter I have ever experienced, and the 
wear and tear was catching up. 

"The accounting final had just gotten 
over. There was a single day to cram for 
the government final to be followed the 
next day by a presentation In my systems 
class. The first sign that something was 
wrong was while I was In the library cram- 

ming for the government exam. My mind 
was drifting aimlessly and my body craved 
sleep almost every half hour. Attributing 
the minor, but bothersome, throat Irritation 
to the cold weather, lack of sleep and Ir- 
regular eating habits (NU food), I tried un- 
successfully to study Into the early morning 
hours. The effort was futile because nothing 
was being achieved. It was time for bed. 

"The proceeding morning I felt no better 
physically and so unprepared I seriously 
considered not taking the exam. But I had 
no Idea how long I would feel this sluggish, 
yet there was no way I could take a make- 
up after the holidays. There was a sigh of 
relief when I finished the exam with just the 
presentation ahead of me. 

"Preparation for the presentation was no 
better. I found myself omitting a lot of 
charts and graphs as well as oral sections 
of the project just to get the whole thing 
over with. The end had come. After all this 

physical and mental exhaustion I was anx- 
iously looking forward to rest, recovery 
and recreation over the holiday. I couldn't 
wait to say goodbye to the semester, the 
white-brick campus and the buildings of 
Boston for 12 days over vacation. Of 
course, I could not leave the city without 
some celebration at the end of the semes- 
ter .. . 

"Before going out that night, I knew that 
my mind and body could not take too much 
savage amusement. But, I wanted to say 
goodbye to some friends and my girlfriend 
over some dinner and drinks. That lasted 
about two hours and I went home at 8:30 to 
rest. The next morning I awoke feeling 
worse with a pain In my rib cage making It 
hard to even sit up. It was time to see a 

After a $25 blood test, a $35 doctor's 
visit and much waiting, the case was diag- 
nosed. Mononucleosis! Then this guy I paid 
$60 dollars tells me that's there's nothing 
he can do. He tells me what I cannot do. 
Restriction were imposed: no Job; no heavy 
physical activity; no alcohol. Just plenty of 
rest and liquids. I had to Just stick out the 
duration of the Illness. 

"The following day my throat swelled like 
a balloon. The soreness In my throat 
stretched to my ears. My lymph glands 
were so enlarged that they overwhelmed 
my vocal chords Inhibiting any attempts of 
talking. Swallowing was torture. I dreaded 
when my mouth secreted any saliva. It hurt 
too much to swallow so I had to spit It out. I 
used seven boxes of tissue during the ill- 
ness. There was no sleep because when I 
dozed off, I would Involuntarily swallow 
and the pain was Just too much. I could not 
talk or eat. Drinking was my only suste- 
nance, but that also brought excruciating 
pain . . Never had any disease had such 
an effect . . . and no relief In sight. 

"No one would come near me Including 
my family. Who could blame them, I was 
contagious. There was no family together- 
ness over the holidays and I stayed In a 
separate room while my brothers and sis- 
ters ate. Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve 
were spent horizontally on the couch 
watching the tree lights reflected from the 
tinsel onto the celling. The holidays were 
virtually nonexistent and I did not open any 
presents until after the new year. Every-

"Mono Is kind of a funny disease. Its ef- 
fects are different for every person. Some 
cases are quite mild and other so extreme 
that a person spends time In a hospital. 
College students are highly suseptlble be-

God bless those fuzzy little beasts. After 
a grueling day of classes, battling with the 
MBTA, or a hard day at work, you know you 
can count on a pair of happy, hungry eyes 
to be waiting for you when you get home. 
No matter what the reason for his affection, 
your cat Is the much needed friend at the 
end of a long day. 

Living In a dorm or apartment almost 
eliminates the opportunity to have a dog. 
But, cats are small, adaptable, and rela- 
tively quiet. Their flexibility allows you to 
keep your pet without setting up any spe- 
cial place for them, so you can keep them 
anywhere. They like to pick out their spot 
themselves, and more often than not, It Is 
some empty box, cubbyhole or corner that 
won't be In your way. Or, after a well- 
thought-out scratch on the bottom cloth, 
your box spring Is turned Into a great hide- 
out. The only clue to their location Is given 
In the middle of the night when they shift 
positions and shake the bed. 

Cats are very Independent. Many people 
dislike this characteristic, but for apart- 

ment living, It Is certainly an attribute. They 
"keep" over weekends with Just a bowl of 
water and a pile of food. They stay out of 
your way, keep pretty quiet, and because 
of their ability to amuse themselves, they 
don't totally depend on you to have fun 
and be happy. Just give them food and a 
toy or two, along with the respect and af- 
fection they deserve, and you will have a 
true friend. 

Be late with the Nine Lives, and even the 
nastiest tempered cat becomes your best 
friend. Not only are they hungry, but 
they're smart. They can look at you In a 
way that melts your heart — even If they 
have Just ripped the new drapes from your 
windows during their dally laps around the 
living room. (Besides, It was all In fun . . .) 

They can knock something off a shelf, 
disappear, then casually stroll over to the 
mess you're cleaning up, and look as If to 
say, "Whatever could have happened?" 
How can you be mad? 

Having more than one cat If you have 
room, Is even better. They can keep each 

other company and provide you with a 
comedy show whenever they get playful. 
The extra money spent on food and litter Is 
forgotten when compared to the laughs 
they'll provide as they stalk each other 
and try to hide In the most Incredible 
places like In the bookcase or under the 

"Meows" are great company whether 
you have one or ten; a pure-bred perslan or 
a street-wise stray. They reflect the treat- 
ment they receive and the personalities of 
their owners. They require little care ex- 
cept cleaning the litter box (gag me with a 
spoon) and food. They won't complain 
about loud music, they keep the mice and 
roach population down (a big plus), and 
don't make comments about the company 
you keep. 

And, as long as you love them, they'll 
listen to your problems with sympathetic 
eyes, greet you at the door, and purr you to 
sleep at night. They're probably some of 
the best roommates we could ever havel 


Each year In April the winner of the Bos- 
ton Marathon crosses the finish line to vic- 
tory right In our own backyard. And, each 
year Northeastern students and faculty re- 
present our school by taking part in this 
prestigious event; by running In the race or 
by cheering from the sidelines. 



Remember those penniless weekends? 
The Friday and Saturday nights when your 
net worth could be measured In quarters? 

Do you remember those great movies we 
used to mob Into? We'd pack Into the 
Alumni Auditorium, or the ballroom ... a 
few times the show was upstairs In one of 
the big rooms In the Ell Center. That usually 
meant that someone was trying to slip 
something cultural by us. "OK," we'd say. 
"As long as It's freel" We were always 
ready for a good time. 

According to the people responsible for 
keeping track of such things, the X-rated 
movies earned the most money. Under- 
standable. Do you remember the night 
they played ... I should say, put on the 
screen; Deep Throat? 

I went through high school feeling 
ashamed because I was the only guy on 
my block too chicken to sneak off, and see 
Deep Throat. (I didn't even know what the 
title meant.) It got to the point that I be- 
lieved that I was the only male In the West- 
ern Hemisphere who hadn't seen that mov- 

A summer passed. And, suddenly one 
chilly Boston evening, a buck-and-a-half, 
an NU ID, and a front row seat In the Alumni 
Auditorium allowed me to Join the Men of 
the Western Hemisphere. "College Is good 
for something after all," I thought later. I 
was getting an education. 

But, even though the pornographic mov- 
ies drew the biggest crowds, they were not 
the best memories of films at Northeastern. 
I learned to appreciate the genius and uni- 
versality of Charles Chaplin. The "little 
tramp" was on a free videotape showing of 
Modern Times. It played In the Ell Student 
Center Lounge during an exam week when 
I really needed a laugh. Back In the audito- 
rium, for $1.50, I found out "what the stuff 
dreams are made of," Humphrey Bogart In 
The Maltese Falcon. And then a Star Is born 
In Judy Garland. In the midst of Bergman's 
Autumn Sonata, The Hounds of the Basker- 
vllles nip at the heels of Frankenstein, King 
Kong and Nosferatu. Perhaps It was those 
three who turned to Rocky and Shaft for 

"Waltl" cries my soon to be ex-room- 
mate, "You're mixing Ashes and Dia- 
monds." "Talk dirty to mel" he pleads. 

"I don't care where Debbie did," I reply, 
"This Is no Frat Housel" 


One advantage of going to school In Bos- 
ton Is the wide range of activities offered. 
They are all In a relatively small area ac- 
cessible by the MBTA for those of us who 
haven't a car. There Is something going on 
every night and through the year. Boston Is 
a "Hub" for events that attracts not only 
local and suburban people, but also na- 
tionwide tourists. One of the lures of Boston 
Is Its colonial buildings In the shadows of 
the modern structures among the un- 
planned, Interwoven streets. The city Is 
also a mecca for education and medical 
attention drawing the world's most compe- 
tent people to Its Institutions. The city has 

charm and personality that makes Boston 
one of America's most Interesting areas. 

Another fascinating facet of Boston Is the 
people of Its neighborhoods like the Italian 
North End and the Irish of South Boston to 
the professionals of the Back Bay. Sections 
are rich and poor, old and new, and wilting 
and thriving. As with any congregation of a 
greater mass of people, crime Is usually 
apt to occur more often. For whatever rea- 
son, economic, social and so on, violations 
such as rape and murder to petty larceny 
and loitering are more widespread In ur- 
ban areas. Boston Is no exception. 

Northeastern Is a vital part of Boston's 
academic and social climate. The location 
Is not the best area of the city, because It 
lies between Boston's Back Bay and Rox- 
bury. Usually the first day we arrive on 
campus we are told by someone which 
places to avoid, even If we are walking In 
groups. One must be wary when walking 
through the Fens, on Huntington Ave. to- 
wards the Mission Hill project and In sec- 
tions of the South End where muggings are 
a constant threat. It's a real Issue that the 
school neglected to tell you about In the 
brochure you were sent while you were still 
In high school. 

One NU senior, Peter Manganaro, de- 
scribes the time he was mugged, during his 
freshman year: 

"I was leaving my apartment on Park 
Drive at 10 o'clock after work. I had to go 
to the library to study for finals. It was my 
first semester and I was really worried 
about my exams. I wasn't thinking. I took 
my books and my ID with me and headed 
off across the Fens. I was close to crossing 
the bridge over the waterway when two 
guys rushed from the bushes behind me. I 
thought they were going to run by me, but 
before I knew It I was on the ground. They 
tackled me and started to search me. Then 
two other guys appeared asking me where 
my money was. The whole thing happened 
so fast. I had no money but they saw my 
high school ring which they wanted. They 
forced It off me which got me pissed and I 
threw a punch at one of them. It was a 
dumb mistake because then all four pro- 
ceeded to beat me and broke my nose In a 
number of places. I Just couldn't stand be- 
ing still without a fight. After beating me, 
they flew off and I headed back to my 
apartment, dazed and scared and angry." 

Another student's experience went like 

"I was visiting a friend on campus and It 
was real warm out so I decided to walk up 
Huntington Ave to Brookllne where I live. 
Fortunately for me I was carrying this kryp- 
tonlte lock that I had gotten from my friend. 
As I was coming up on South Huntington, 
this guy started staggering towards me, he 
must have been drunk. Anyways, he pulled 
a knife, demanded my money and told me 
he'd kill me If I didn't give It to him. I don't 
know If It was fright or what, but I swung the 
lock at him and knocked him out cold. Ac- 
tually, I was petrified. Then, someone 
called the police and they came to pick 
this guy up." 


Night spots, namely eating spots, are 
found all over the city— Boston Is a haven 
for those who like to dine out. 

But, when It's you and a half dozen other 
poor college students looking for a break 
from Institutional food, or Just a place td 
munch-out after the game, where do you 
go? For NU students here's a few popular 
hangouts — close by and cheap as well: 


(Scene: Anywere, USA) 

Relative or other busybody. "Where does 
little Tommy go to college?" 

NU Parent: "Northeastern University." 

Relative: "Ah yes, Northwestern, I've heard 
so much about that school — hey that's 
quite Impressive . . . where Is that again, 

NU Parent: "He, that's NorthEASTern, In Bos- 

Relative: "Oh, one of those small, private 
colleges, eh?" 

NU Parent: "Actually, It's the largest pri- 
vate university In the country." 

Relative: "Oh, I see . . . Hmmm, I've never 
heard of It. What year Is he In?" 

NU Parent: "He's a mlddler." 

Relative: "What's a mlddler?" (With apolo- 
gies to Mark Crowley.) 

NU Parent: "Well, It's somewhere between 
a sophomore and a Junior — It's a five 
year program." 

Relative: "Five years? You mean that even 
though our sons are the same age my 

son Chip will graduate before Tommy?" 

NU Parent: "Well yes, but co-op . . ." 

Relative: "Hey don't take It so hard. My son 

always was smarter anyways. The extra 

year should do Tommy a world of good." 


On October 8, 1982, Northeastern an- 
nounced the establishment of Its Marine 
Science and Maritime Studies Center, lo- 
cated on a rocky promontory overlooking 
the Atlantic Ocean. The new director of the 
center Is Dr. Paul Rudy. 

Under the College of Arts and Sciences, 
the center has been established to enable 
the undergraduate and graduate students 
to pursue studies encompassing both the 
scientific and humanistic aspects of the 
ocean. Courses In zoology and oceanogra- 
phy as well as economics, art and litera- 
ture are taught In this Interdisciplinary pro- 

Areas of concentration offered through 
the Center include a graduate marine biol- 
ogy curriculum, an undergraduate minor 
In marine studies, and the Sea Quarter Pro- 
gram, which allows students to live and 
work aboard a two-masted schooner, the 
Harvey Gamage for eight weeks. 

The Center's field station at East Point, 
Nahant, is a 20-acre site on a nearly two- 
thirds of a mile of rocky shoreline. The site 
Is a former Nike missile base. 

Dr. Rudy took over the directorship of the 
Center In July. Rudy, a marine zoologist, 
also holds an appointment as Director of 
the Institute of Marine Biology at the Univer- 
sity of Oregon. 

The Joint program with Northeastern Uni- 
versity and the University of Oregon was 
established to allow marine studies stu- 
dents to experience the coastal zones of 
both North American shorelines. 

"A comparative study of east and west 
coast marine environments Is an opportuni- 
ty that has been largely missed," says 
Rudy. "Because the environments of the 
two coasts are very different, much can be 
learned from a study of the marine life, sea- 
shore, land use, and urban problems of

other work right now. How far along are 
you on your paper?" 

"I'm about 75 percent through. But I'm 
afraid that the next part of the research 
will be the hardest to find. I don't know 
where these so.urces are located. I've

Proctorlng: an Instead of work-study Job 
that many students seem to prefer. Consid- 
ering all of the recent financial aid cut- 
backs, It's no wonder that so many stu- 
dents apply. The hours Include overnight 
shifts and weekends, which can accommo- 
date people of all different lifestyles. This 
allows them to fit In 16 hours of work Into 
two full shifts, unlike most work-study Jobs 
that have to be a few hours here and there 
Monday through Friday. 

Proctors put up with a lot of abuse. There 
for our personal protection, they ask for 
Identification and often receive glares, 
snarls, and obscenities In return. And, 
you'll have to excuse them If they look bor- 
ed—they probably are. Just remember 
that they may have been sitting In the 
same chair for 8 hours straight, hardly able 
to leave even to go the bathroom. (After 
working for a few weeks, proctors' blad- 
ders capacities doublet) 

Actually It Isn't that bad. If lucky enough 
to be assigned to a fairly quiet, "low-traf- 
fic" dorm, the proctor might even be able 
to get some studying done. Getting paid to 
sit there and do homework can't be too 
hard to deal with. 


It brings a shudder to most CBA seniors. 
Its reputation promotes horror stories of 
sleepless nights spent with group members 
arguing over projected sales levels, adver- 
tising expenditures, market trends, and ex- 
tra cheese with mushrooms or green pep- 
per with onions. 

Juniors first hear of It from friends of 
friends who claim to have survived its 
strenuous workload unscathed. 

The Journey begins sometime In the sen- 
ior year, varying with each student's ability 
to face reality. Many refuse to accept the 
unrelenting challenge of "Policy" for fear 
of a mental melt down. 

As the typical CBA senior enters the 
"Policy" lecture room for the first time, ap- 
prehension fills the air. The tension Is close 
to unbearable. Blood pressures are dan- 
gerously high as adrenalin races through 
the body. Many have come to grips with 
reality, accepting the fact It's their turn- 
— some have not. Conversation seems to 
flow freely as everyone waits nervously for 
the Instructor. It has a calming effect until 
the door opens once again and the Instruc- 
tor walks in with a cynical smile. Reactions 
from the class cover a wide and varied 
spectrum — from an opportunistic serious- 
ness to a defensive madness. No matter 
what state of mind Individuals are in — th- 
ose who thought they were physically and 
emotionally prepared, and, those who did 
not — everyone loses all self-confidence as 
the Instructor announces, "This Is 

45.112— Business Policy." Palms sweat as 
the instructor outlines the course and "poli- 
cy game." 

The first few classes cover various state- 
gles employed by business under different 
economic conditions. Related readings are 
assigned to orient those In the class who 
are new to corporate strategies. 

By the second week of class groups have 
formed. The Instructor has stressed the Im- 
portance of a diversified meml tershlp to 
Include: marketing, management, human 
resources, with the ever popular account- 
ing and finance concentrators becoming 
extremely valuable resources. 

Eleventh year decisions are due In ten 
days. The class Is given the name of a T.A. 
and his hour; available for consultation. 
Groups are urged to utilize his expertise, 
and clarify any questions or mlsunder- 

standings they have pertaining to the tirst 
year decision. 

It Is at this point that Interpersonal skills 
come Into play with group meetings. There 
is a tremendous amount of analytical work 
that must be done. This analysis requires 
the combined efforts of each group mem- 
ber. Markets must be segmented, account- 
ing procedures outlined, and a financial 
postion established. Five years of historical 
data has to be examined and understood 
In order to formulate and Implement a suc- 
cessful strategy. 

The formation of a strategy is the es- 
sence of the course. 

The apprehension of the first day returns 
when groups hand In their 11th year deci- 

All of their estimated sales, advertising 
and product development budgets, raw 
materials and production schedule figures 
are fed Into a computer. The program 
draws random economic conditions and 
applies them to the groups' Input. 

A week later in class, the computer re- 
sults are returned. As members gather to 
review their company's performance, 
some are Jubilant with a tremendous 
growth Is sales, minimized overhead, and 
low ending inventory to show for their hard 
work and determination. Others turn pale, 
begin to swoon and collapse into their 

The procedure of yearly decision-making 
continues through year 14. Provided a 
group does not go bankrupt In year 1 1, the 
progressive decisions should become 
more reflective of the strategy developed 
and Implemented In the first year. 

Up until year 14, group strategy has re- 
mained a closely guarded secret. Upon re- 
turn of the last year's decision (14) groups 
are now responsible to put together a five 
year forecast for years 15 through 20 of 
their company's performance. The fore- 
cast is to be Incorporated In a presentation 
where the groups will reveal their strate- 
gies and related performances over years 
11 through 14. 

The experience members gain In making 
their presentation to the class Is directly 
related to how sound their strategy Is and 
on what criteria they based their decisions, 
rather than how well they performed in the 

"Policy" Is an excellent opportunity to 
apply knowledge gained through academ- 
ics as well as co-op experiences. It's 
meant to be a learning tool, where mis- 
takes can be made, confronted, analyzed, 
and understood. What better place for a 
group of young professionals to be given 
control of a $56 million company to do with 
as they (collectively) see fit. 

"Pollcy"-although It may not be one of 
the most popular courses In CBA — offers 
one of the greatest challenges to seniors. 


One of the most challenging situations 
for a student at Northeastern, Is finding a 
parking space, especially when one Is a 
commuter and makes this procedure a rit- 

The parking situation Is bad enough be- 
cause of limited parking spaces, but It gets 
worse when one finds that there Is now a 
two hour parking limit on the few streets 
without parking meters. Naturally, there is 

no sign declaring this violation, but one 
soon sees day-glow orange tickets on ev- 
ery car lining the street. There is also the 
case of the unknowing victim who arrives 
at school and finds numerous parking 
spaces on a busy street. He therefore 
parks his car and makes It to class on time. 
Unfortunately, when he returns to his car at 
the end of the day, he is outraged to find a 
ticket on his windshield. 

I'm not saying that one has to limit him- 
self to parking on public streets. However, 
as a veteran commuter at Northeastern, I 
feel that one Is better off looking for a 
space on the streets. 

Any commuter will tell you that If you 
want to find a parking space on Northeas- 
tern property, It's necessary to arrive at 
school around 7:00 AM. I have made the 
mistake of arriving after 7:30 AM and I was 
practically In Columbia point before I 
found a parking space. So, the decision Is 
to either park on Northeastern property 
and walk five miles, or return to find a 
broken windshield, stolen radio, etc. All In 
all, I've learned the hard way. After receiv- 

ing many parking tickets and getting 
towed because the city was paving the 
streets In the Fens, I've come to grips with 
the situation and try to arrive early to find a 
parking space. However, there's one thing 
I've learned about this whole experience: 
you're damned if you do, and damned If 
you don't! 


"Silence Is golden," as the cliche goes. 
It's especially precious In the hustle-bustle 
of a city, almost Impossible to find on a 
college campus, and beyond the scope of 
reality on a college campus in the middle 
of a city. There are times when we all 
would really enjoy some peace and quiet, 
and we spend a great amount of energy 
looking for it. 

Studying seems to be generally im- 

proved by silence, and students often seek 
out the traditionally quiet areas, only to be 
disappointed. Take, for Instance, studyroo- 
mltls. This Is a disease with the major symp- 
tom being the lack of concentration, usual- 
ly caused by the unfortunate locations of 
study rooms. Popular places for study 
rooms Include across the hall from the mu- 
sic room (wish that group knew more than 
one songl) and underneath the physical fit- 
ness buff's room (whose Jumping Jacks 
sound like a shower of cinder blocks). 

The library version of the plague Is the 
Innocent Klutz, who tries to be so quiet 
while eating his corn chips and tearing 
each sheet of paper out of his notebook. Of 
course his books will land on the floor at 
least once or twice, not to mention his 
alarmclock watch that will sound every 
hour (he hasn't figured out how to make It 
work correctly yet). 

Sometimes we Just need a quiet time 
once In a while to "be mellow," to calm 
down after a lot of hectic times, to pull 
ourselves together. Often we retreat to our 
bedrooms only to find that the neighbor 
upstairs Is trying to discover Just how loud 
his stereo can go before the speakers blow 

If you're desperate to find tranquility, 
one method Is to observe the people 
around you, and modify your habits ac- 
cordingly. You may find that people 
around you party all night and sleep most 
of the day, especially on weekends. If you 
want to see a deserted street, try taking an 
early morning stroll on Saturday or Sunday. 

Despite all of this discussion about 
searching for silence, there are times when 
It can be too quiet, like when you're home 
alone watching "Halloween" on TV. 

There are times when we all need to 
have quiet surroundings, and there are 
times when we all enjoy a little noise. The 
trick is to find the "happy medium".

Invested In our college careers. It amounts 
to many dollars that you wouldn't want to 
be wasted. Granted, poor grades don't al- 
ways mean lack of learning and wasted 
money, but the person with the 4.0 surely 
appears to have an edge on the person 
with the 1.01 


Yes folks It's quad time. "Quaddlng".the 
one thing In common with everyone at 
Northeastern. You can find Just about any- 
thing In the quad. Looking for friends, may- 
be the girl of your dreams, or even the best 
weed north of the border; your best bet Is 
to check the quad. It remains still as one of 

and as the spring quarter closes and 
graduation nears I'm sure that the best are 
yet to come. Hope to see you there . . . 

the main focal points on campus. Amidst 
such a large amount of students, the social 
butterfly can find a natural habitat. 

With the warm days of spring, the quad 
becomes a frequent hangout for students. 
Lured by Its green grass and sunny spots, 
students flock to spend some time there. 
Between watching a slave auction, taking 
swings at a car, or watching the Ayatollah 
burn In effigy; the quad has shown a lot to 
me In these past five years. 

Let's not forget the best thing about the 
quad though, and that's meeting people. It 
might be that little smile, or that first hello, 
but after that — hey, let the good times roll. 

For many students the quad represents 
the halfway point between Northeastern 
and the Cask. You can almost always find 
someone who can be talked Into a few 
cold ones. For those returning from the 
Cask Its also a great place to stop and get 
your head back together before class, or 
get a few quick tokes to straighten up. 

Yes the time spent In the quad will al- 
ways be remembered as a break from the 
drudgery of day to day classes. I've had a 
lot of good times cruising through the quad 


For many of us, Northeastern was our first 
time away from home without supervision. 
We had a chance to take all those thoughts 
and Ideas we had acquired throughout our 
youth and adolescence and then see how 
they apply In the world In relation to us. 
Some of us have experimented with differ- 
ent views as we have grown more objec- 
tive. These were our first steps towards In- 
dependence. The roads were never 
straight nor hardly smooth, but we exper- 
ience life nevertheless! As long as we use 
our experiences to learn and grow, we will 
develop and shape our lives to heights we 
never knew were attainable. 

One question we usually consider Is one 
of religion. A number of us, undoubtably, 
were carted off regularly to religious ser- 
vices of our parents' denomination when- 
ever the Sabbath day or religious holiday 
arrive, whether we wanted to or not. The 

dogmas was drilled Into our heads with lit- 
tle choice. 

Once we arrived at college, especially If 
we moved away from home, there was no 
one there to make sure we attended reli- 
gious services. The choice was ours. 

It's not an easy choice and never clear 
cut. Questions arise such as: "Why was I 
attending religious services before I came 
to college? Do I still have a need to go? Do I 
want to go? Is there a supreme being, or a 
God? How do I know this Is the right religion 
for me? Do I need organized religion?" 
Eventually, the solution comes from our- 
selves-what we need and what we can live 

To help those of us who are unsure and 
those of us who are, there are several reli- 
gious affiliated organizations here on cam- 
pus. The Religious life office, located on the 
second floor of the E11 Building, offers var- 
ious services and programs. Its activities 
are aimed at persons of all faiths, though at 
times specific religious Issue or celebra- 
tions are focused upon. The Religious life 


office respects and supports religious dif- 
ferences while drawing attention to the 
spiritual values common to the various 

The Roman Catholic Ministry offers litur- 
gical, educational, social and Issue-orient- 
ed programs as well as retreats. Lltugy Is 
celebrated dally In St. Ann's Church on St. 
Stephen and Gainsborough streets. 

Hlllel provides Jewish cultural, educa- 
tional and social activities on campus. It 
provides Sabbath and holiday services, 
seminars on topics relevant to Jewish life, 
study classes and coffeehouses. The Hlllel 
House Is located at 456 Parker Street. 

The Lutheran Ministry Is staffed with a 
full-time campus pastor and a lay program 
associate who work with students on a min- 
istry of person-to-person outreach, worship 
study and fellowship activities. 





In one way the Rathskeller Is a place to 
unwind after a long day of classes. In an- 
other way, It Is a place to help evening 
students get In the mood for classes before 
they begin. Whatever the reason people 
go to the Rat, one thing's for sure, you meet 
all kinds there— I should know because I 
was a Rat bartender. 

My evenings there used to begin by 
punching In on the tlmeclock at 4:58 p.m. 
On my way through the kitchen, I may stop 
to talk to a cook . . . then It's on to the Rat. 
Walking through those doors behlng the 
bar, Is like walking Into another world. For 
the next seven hours anything could hap- 

My fellow bartender Paul gives me a 
shove and my boss Doug gives me a, "Hill 
Stevle ..." I make my way to the opposite 
end of the bar, scanning the crowd for fa- 
miliar faces. 

Until 6:00 p.m., the bar will be a mad- 

house, created by the overlap of day and 
night students. After that, the Rat will see a 
sharp drop In the flow of beer and wine, 
and a lot of empty tables. 

For the next couple of hours very few 
customers enter the bar — and even fewer 
will leave as "the regulars" settle down for 
a few more brews. During this time I take 
the opportunity to talk to the people I am 

At 8:05 like clockwork, the evening stu- 
dents and professors will begin to flow Into 
the Rathskeller. This Is one of my favorite 
times because I have the chance to see my 
friend Norm. Norm Is a well respected Ac- 
counting Prof, who I have come to know as 
a good friend. And, each and every 
Wednesday night at 10:05 my friend Rod 
from the Ell Center gameroom puts In his 

Giving last call In the Rathskeller Is a pain 
In the neck. Why? Because we give last call 
at 10:45, and most people are not used to 
being shut off so early. Last call also means 
cleaning up, a Job frowned upon by each 
and every member of the Rat team. 

But, the Rat Is basically a good place to 
hang out. It's got plenty of good points, 
such as free popcorn, pizza, video games, 
no cover charge, a color television and 
great looking bartenders and waitresses. 
These far outweigh the fact that you can 
never get a stool at the bar and the early 
closing time. 


Actually, both of the above spellings are 
Incorrect— It's sieve. But, spelling and 
manners are shot to hell when the Husky 
Icemen slap the puck right through the 
goalie's legs to score. 

"Slve, slve, slvell" 

The opponent goalie's typical reaction Is: 
"Huh? What are they saying? Are they 
shouting at me?" 

Pretty funny Isn't It? 

Whatl? You don't know what a sieve Is? 

You know . . . It's a colander ... a strainer 
. . . the elbow macaroni remains In the little 
bowl but the water drains out because the 
bowl Is full of holes? 

"Gimme an 'S\ gimme and 'I', gimme a 
'V, gimme an 'E' . . . what's It spelll Slve, 
slve, slvelll" 

Well It really doesn't spell sieve-but you 
get the Idea. 


I walked up a broken escalator the other 
day, not thinking much about It until I 
caught up to the people ahead of me who 
were cursing all the way. "You should be 
grateful," I wanted to say, "You're getting 
Into shape for a change . . ." but I was too 
exhausted and out of breath to say It when 
I got to the top. I'm sure you've read the 
same magazine articles I have, telling us 
that the American public Is lazy and out of 
shape. They're right. I mean, think about It. 
How many of you ever actually waited five 
minutes for an elevator to go up one floor? 
A bit ridiculous, don't you agree? 

Living on the fifth floor of an apartment 
building lacking an elevator, I have been 
getting my share of exercise. It really Isn't 
that bad, except on grocery days and 
laundry days. However, I have to admit, I 
have gone to work without my gloves and 
scarf rather than climb back up the stairs 
to get them. 

Stair climbing Is one of those activities 
that Is very unique to each person. Some 
people walk up the stairs very slowly and 
flat-footed, not missing a step. People of 

the long-legged variety prefer to remind 
other people of their length of legs by tak- 
ing two to three steps at a time. Some peo- 
ple are "bouncers" — they take a step and 
bounce, step and bounce and so forth In 
that manner. 

Then there are runners, who feel that the 
faster they go, the more quickly the climb 
will be over with. They are the group that 
are most likely to perform the most amus- 
ing of stunts, tripping going up the stairs. 
Although you might end up with a bruise or 
two, the most pain Is that of embarrass- 
ment, because there will Invariably be at 
least one member of the opposite sex 
watching you. 

At school there are many buildings with 
slow elevators or no elevator at all. If 
you're as lucky as I have been, almost all of 
your classes were on the top floors of differ- 
ent buildings. 

Our yearbook office, for those of you who 
don't know where it Is (shame on youl) is on 
the fourth floor of the Ell Student Center. 
We have often attributed our small staff to 
four flights of stairs and no elevator. We 
have suggested to various student center 
staff members the need for an elevator, but 
for some unknown reason there seem to be 
higher priorities ... so I guess we'll just 
continue to climb our stairs and Improve 
our cardiovascular systems . . .

stew crew 

It has been getting quite noisy at the Mat- 
thews Arena lately. Over In sec 30 the 
Zoo Crew leads the cheen 
band Is playing and the cheerleaders are 
screaming that we're number one. But, 
what is that sound coming from the normal- 
ly relaxed section 1? Who are those guys 
with the traffic cones and why aro they 
yelling, "Stew, Stew, Stewll?" No, they 
aren't prisoners asking for food, but they 
are the Stew Crew. 

Unlike the Zoo Crew who cheer for each 
and every player at NU, the object of admi- 
ration tor the Stew Crew Is one player. He is 
Stewart Emerson, a freshman hockey play- 

er from Foxboro, Ontario. 

The Stew Crew is made up of Stewart 
Emerson's friends and fans. Every check, 
score and penalty made by Stew Is 
cheered by his Crew. And, any opposing 
player who dares to tread on Emerson terri- 
tory is booed or yelloed at, not to mention 
being called by some unmentionable 

The Stew Crew has no leader, only fol- 
lowers. They wear no costumes or paint on 
their faces. But, any Northeastern hockey 
fan with ears and eyes knows that they are 
there. And, the Stew Crew is prepared to 
support and defend their friend In his first 
season of college hockey. 

Maybe the Stew Crew will start a trend 
here at Northeastern. Who knows, we may 
have such groups as: Bucyk's Bunch, Ken's 
Klan and Davldner's Defenders soon. Any- 
one interested? Sections 2 through 29 are 
now open. 



Along with the arrival of the class of 1986 
came an unwelcome visitor to the dorm 
community. Its name was Salmonella, bet- 
ter known as food poisoning. More than 
100 cases were reported and many more 
went unreported. Many local and national 
newspapers and TV stations reported the 
outbreak. And, as a preventive measure 
the Stetson kitchen was closed down and 

For weeks after the first cases were re- 
ported housing residents ate prepared and 
covered salads, packaged goodies and 
drank out of paper cups. Residents Joked 
about the Invader and affectionately 
called It "Slimonella." They checked the 
floors to make sure "It" wasn't crawling 

there. And, just like the War of the Worlds 
broadcast, the Salmonella scare, spawned 
other UFO (unidentified food object) sight- 
ings. People Imagined everything from 
bugs to fish hooks being In their food. It was 
enough to cause a mass exodus to the lo- 
cal pizza shops. 

Having Salmonella was a terrible exper- 
ience. Symptoms such as an upset stom- 
ach, fever and weakness often struck 
quickly. And soon, your best friend be- 
came the porcelain God because you were 
either sitting on It or bowing to It for mercy. 

At one point, residents were so afraid of 
getting Salmonella that occasionally those 
who had It became outcast of the dorm. 
Victims found showers and bathroom stalls 
marked for their use only. Instead of smok- 
ing and non-smoking tables, there were 
Salmonella and non-Salmonella tables. 

Now It seems that good old "Salmonella" 
has found a permanent home here at NU In 
the kitchens of Stetson Hall. For, just when 
you though It was safe to eat all those deli- 
cious dishes In the cafeteria, It struck 
again. So, the next time you're In a cafete- 
ria, look both ways, check the floor and 
Inspect the food because remember, "Un- 
cle Salm" wants you.

senior week 

The senior week committee has been 
planning all year with Senior Class Advisor 
Chuck Tarver, to provide the class of 1983 
with one big bash before they must go out 
Into the "real world." 

The Schedule Is as follows: 
Monday, June 13: Senior Day at Revlerslde 

Tuesday, June 14: Boston Harbor Cruise 
Wednesday, June 15: To be announced 
Thursday, June 16: An evening with The 

Friday, June 17: Dinner dance at the Park 
Plaza Hotel 

Saturday, June 18: Champagne Reception 
with President Kenneth G. Ryder 
Sunday, June 19: Graduation Ceremony at 
the Boston Garden 




Teacher/course evaluations play an Im- 
portant role In various colleges across 
campus to Improve and maintain a work- 
ing relationship between the student body, 
faculty and administration. By utilizing a 
current evaluation process, compiling and 
translating the data Into a readable for- 
mat, the evaluation results serve these pri- 
mary purposes: 

'Students can use the results to select 
courses of Interest during pre-registration 
and for their own personal Information. 

'Professors will hopefully take the input 
students give them and utilize it to become 
more efficient educators. 

'Administrators encourage teacher- 
/course evaluations because It allows stu- 
dent feedback to be Incorporated In/with 
other forms of Instructor's performance ap- 

During the Winter Quarter 1983, the Stu- 
dent Government Association discontin- 

ued Its TCE leaving the college of Business 
Administration the only college In the Uni- 
versity with a well-established, student run 

A properly Instituted TCE has proven suc- 
cessful In CBA and will hopefully be ac- 
cepted by other colleges that are looking 
for the same success. 


"Excuse me, where are you going?" 

"Ohl We're from Northeastern! You don't 
have to worry these ID'S are valid . . . 
Steve, show him the back of your ID." 

"Heyl It doesn't matter If you go here or 
not. You need a ticket to get In the game." 

"A what? When did this start? We didn't 
need a ticket last year; we could just walk 
In. God, you would think that you pay 
enough already In tuition, now we have to 
pay to root for our own team." 

"They just started it this year to help pay 
for the new arena and renovation and a 
bunch of other junk. You can go to any of 
those four windows to get a ticket. Show 
your idea and you only have to pay $2." 

"Ohl What a bargain." 

So we waited. The price of success had 
come to the land of the Husky. Matthews 
Arena wasn't free. People without passes 
were waiting In line for tickets. 

What exactly is a ticket? It is usually a 
thick piece of paper embroidered with 
pretty colors, or dull colors because they 
are cheaper to print, stating the event, the 
place and the scheduled time. There are 
always little Intricate details on the stub 
such as the seat number, "Admit one" and 
"Restoration fee 25$." Does the restoration 
fee mean the restoration of the theatre to 
Its original state, or restoration of the pro- 
moter's home liquor cabinet to Its original 
state. What we really want out of that tick- 
et Is admittance to a great outing. And, we 
sometimes wait In long lines and always 
shell out a lot of bucks for these events. 
Because of this, It better be worth it. 

With Boston being a cultural melting pot 
offering a wide choice of entertainment 
and activities for anyone and everyone, 
sometime in our college career we will 
have to wait to buy tickets. Trying to obtain 
tickets for various forms of entertainment, 
transportation, and Illegal parking are all 
experienced by we resourceful Huskies. As 
soon as we get up to the window, we now 
encounter the means of getting up the 
money to purchase these pretty pieces of 
paper to attend the gala affair. Prices for 
non-school events are always outrageous 
unless they are specials. Concerts can go 
as high as $25 and plays above $30. To 
acquire these finances, one usually has to 
forego a few meals or that new hairdryer 
on sale at Lechmere. There are always 
movies which are a little more reasonable 
at $4 depending on what you see. But even 
this is a sacrifice. 

Of course, if we want to be thrifty little 
dogs, there are always campus events that 
are a little more down to earth as far as 
prices are concerned. With the finish im- 
provement of the new arena and the con- 
tinued improvement of NU teams, sporting 
events are always a viable alternative for 
something to do. Post-season NCAA action 
by the hockey and basketball teams in re- 
cent years has created a steady demand 

for these tickets. 

There are also the culturally enlightening 
movies like the "Co-ed Girls" that are 
shown to packed houses regularly In the 
auditorium. Hey, how can you go wrong for 
a dollar? Other clubs, such as the Choral 
Society which has an annual holiday con- 
cert, are nearly always sold out. There are 
Just a host of activltes around campus if 
you really want to do something. 

If a person Is seriously interested In at- 
tending a special event, It's worth all the 
hassles of getting up the money and wait- 
ing In line. Then, there is always the risk 
that the event will be sold out, the seat will 
be behind a pole or some foolish relative 
will decide to get married on the day of the 
event. Worse: you can find out after you 
are waiting In line for Arlo Guthrie tickets 
that Ozzle Osbourne Is the opening act. (I 
would like to see that audience.) 

tunnel vision 

I entered the tunnel system through the 
Ell Center Cafeteria one rainy day In the 
fall of 1978 and was Immediately bumped, 
Jostled and corralled through to the front of 
the bookstore. Passing eye-catching win- 
dow displays and a charming couple sell- 
ing jewelry, I curiously slowed down to 
take a peek. I could only slow down, for 
fear of causing a pile-up. Some guy 
stopped to say hello to someone he 
thought he knew. Not only did he not know 
the person, but the two girls behind him 
almost stampeded him on their way to the 
Jewelry table. 

My next class was in Hayden, so at the 
end of the corridor I was Immediately bom- 
barded by two eager encyclopedia sales- 
men. "No, thank you," took five minutes to 
explain. After class it was still pouring out- 
side, so I sloshed through the puddles In the 
tunnel and tried to find my way back to the 
cafeteria for lunch. I passed a table with a 
sign telling seniors to "Do It for Mom," and I 
prayed It wasn't anything dirty. I also 
passed two male students flapping their 
wings— I mean arms — and cooing. The 
word pledgle came to mind. 

After lunch with one of the discarded 
Northeastern News' from the mound, I had 
to find Mugar building. I set out once again 
. . . why do I have to go through a turnstile 
and have my book bag examined to go to 
class? Oh, this Is Dodge?? Oopsll" 

As an upperclassman, now I can laugh at 
the freshmen getting lost and Jostled In the 
tunnels, but the laughter stops when I find 
myself face to face with a further-upper- 
classman-than-me whom I've Just smacked 
into. I guess I'm not an expert yet. The Jew- 
elry salescouple has turned Into a class 
ring saleman. If I ever graduate from this 
school with the tunnels, I'll be glad to buy 

The stack of N.U. News' Is still growing In 
my mlddier year, but by now I can duck, 
dodge and anticipate the other 10,999 stu- 
dents' moves and get to class with a mini- 
mum of bumps and bruises, (and having 
signed up for under 30 parties, activities or 
causes). The only things I still can't figure 
out are how to get back outside and what 
"Doing It for Mom" means. Oh yeah, and 
what student has enough money to buy a 
whole set of encyclopedias? I don't know 
of anyone who has found anything at the 

Lost and Found either. 

The new thing In the tunnels during junior 
year was the lines for the terminal rooms In 
Hayden. That's one good use for all that 
space. Those labs look Interesting on the 
way to Churchill (Faculty and staff only) 
cafe, and Forsyth, where the huge paper 
rolls outside Printing Services serve as a 
resting place (where was I going?). It was 
my fourth year at the city within a city 
called Northeastern that I learned what do- 
ing It for Mom meant, and yes folks, I did It 
(and, It didn't even hurt)l 

By senior year I was an old pro at the 
tunnels and knew how to get from Forsyth 
to Hurtlg In the 10 minutes allotted be- 
tween classes, give or take half an hour. I 
also learned that the tunnels were color- 
coded by building. Those lockers really do 
have a purposed Their color tells you what 
building you're In. To my knowledge there 
Is no legend to this map, but If you care to 
figure It out in grad school, let me know. If 
the lockers are green, this must be Tues- 
day—or Mugarll 

I still can't find my way out of the tunnels, 
but as I take one of my last sweeps past 
the bookstore and those great windows, 
I'm beginning to see a very small light at 
the end, It started when I bought my class 
ring, and grew brighter as I did It for . . . you 
know. As the spring of 1983 rolls around, 
and I stand In line by the Lost and Found to 
sell five years worth of books about .2 miles 
away, the light Is growing steadily, and I 
think, Just maybe, the shape of a door Is 
beginning to form at the end of the hall. The 
sun (I) Is so bright I can barely make out the 
handle— sunl I thought I'd forgotten what 
sunshine looked and felt like. It's spring at 
Northeastern folksl This Is better than Char- 
lie emerging from the MTAI In five years 
underground, the lingo outdoors has 
changed. I can't seem to make out what 
everyone Is saying, as I emerge Into a 
place called (by few) Bullfinch Mall, but it 

sounds like the new catch word is "quad." 
From what I gather, It's a place where peo- 
ple sit, watch, talk, study, catch rays and 
frlsbees, meet people ... Is this place for 


During the early 1980s at NU, the comput- 
er age really took hold. Do you remember 
when you paid a quarter for a hundred 
cards and had to punch out your program? 
When you finally had a printout, It was 
back to the drawing board. Batch process- 
ing Is now Just a memory- And, what hap- 
pened to all the old equipment? Those 
card punches that were well overdue were 
scrapped In the 1960s. As for the Cyber 70, 
I saw one on display at the Digital Comput- 
er Museum In Marlboro. 

What was our replacement? Three let- 
ters say It all; VAX. Digital's 32 bit machine 
feeds both faculty and students alike. And, 
with a hundred plus VT100s all around 
campus, you can get on the system very 

easily. With this great asset students who 
would have never taken a computer-orient- 
ed course are given exposure to the sys- 
tem. In addition, there's the Decwrlter IVs 
and don't forget the LA 120s. For those stu- 
dents who want a different exposure, there 
are always the RX02s and mini-floppies. 
There are even some students whose 
accessabily to the system is as easy as 
dialing a telephone number. What's In 
store for the future at NU? As more high 
tech students are drawn to the school, and 
with a new College of Computer Science, 
the pace will surely continue. 


What a great Invention umbrellas are. 
Just think, those cute little contraptions 
keep you nice and dry in a much more 
sophisticated, mature way than the little 
plastic rain slickers you wore when you 
were "only a freshman." With an umbrella 
you don't have to worry about all the rain 
running down your Jacket and saturating 
the lower half of your anatomy. 

In the city umbrellas are especially more 
practical, since there are few occasions for 
you to go from place to place without hav- 
ing to wait for public transportation or walk 
five minutes to your car. However, they are 
only effective If used properly. One must 
learn to operate an umbrella as any other 
complex piece of machinery. Aerodynam- 
ics are a major consideration. As the wind 
Is whipping by, you must take care to hold 
the umbrella In such a position as to pro- 
tect yourself from the elements and yet 
avoid a Mary Popplns Incident or a broken 
umbrella. You should always pay attention 
to the height at which you are holding your 
umbrella, as there Is an optimum height 
which prevents the water from running off 
your umbrella and directly Into your shoes. 

Oh, and let us not forget the most re- 

markable thing about many umbrel- 
las—that magic little button. Great Isn't It? 
Whoosh and It's open. However, an acci- 
dental touch of the thumb can place you In 
some very uncomfortable situations. It's a 
very effective way of waking up fellow 
MBTA passengers on the way to work on 
dreary mornings. But, sometimes It's un- 
wise to travel with your collapsable 
friend, because sometimes, your umbrella 
makes It on the bus and you don't. 

As with all other parts of life, there are 
certain rules of etiquette to remember 
when using an umbrella. When passing 
someone on the sidewalk who Is a fellow 
umbrella-user, the shorter person would 
pull their umbrellas down even more, al- 
lowing the taller one to raise his umbrella. 
(In cases where people appear to be the 
same height It Is acceptable to stand back- 
to-back; however direct measurement Is 
preferred, so try to carry a tape measure.) 
When two people must share an umbrella 
(no longer considered romantic — It's now 
gauche and messy besides) the umbrella 
should cover the more prestigious of the 
two people, or else the person who owns 
the umbrella. 


One of the more highly visible occupa- 
tions around campus, that a graduating 
senior can aspire to, grants freedom for 
establishing desired work hours, promotes 
customer response, and gives the satisfac- 
tion of being one's own boss. 

Sounds pretty good If you're looking for 
solicitation directed towards the vending 
Industry. In actuality the vending trade is a 
highly competitive, and sometimes territo- 
rial business. Those who venture into this 

fast-paced world quickly discover "what It 
takes" or do not last here long. 

A vendor must learn how to work with 
people from all walks of life — customers, 
competitors, and the law. Constant aware- 
ness of his surroundings is a necessity. Es- 
tablishment of safeguards against theft 
and robbery must be effectively Imple- 

The success of a vendor relies largely on 
how quick he adapts to his selling environ- 
ment. A strong understanding of his target 
market is vital for the selection of market- 
able merchandise. It generally takes a siz- 
able investment on the part of the vendor 
to start-up. If he decides upon a product 
solely on his own preference without study- 
ing its marketability, he could very well 
have thrown his Investment away. Working 
hours are not determined by the vendor, 
but by his customers. Sales are In direct 
proportion to vlslblity, availability, and lo- 
cation. Most vendors prefer to set-up In 

high traffic/heavy volume areas. The at- 
traction of a crowd around his operation 
will In turn attract more potential buyers. 

The number of preferred locations are 
being sought after by a constantly growing 
number of vendors. This aspect of the busi- 
ness can be related to prospecting in that 
vendors stake claims on their favorite spot. 

A well established vendor who has 
braved the elements, endured the stiff 
competition, and survived the street life for 
a season or two can begin to have fun. It Is 
at this point that market trends, consumer 
fads, and product diversification can be 
concentrated on. From all of this, the ven- 
dors operation can be made more profit- 
able, it all depends on the Individual. 


Vacations at Northeastern are few and 
far between. When these infrequent times 
do come upon us we usually have to make 
a decision about what to do. We could: 
stay In Boston or wherever our apartments 
are; go home; or take off to a far away 
enchanted paradise like Boise, Idaho. 

Staying in Boston would probably avoid 
a lot of rushing to pack and all those other 

may be a good time to find out where you 
really stand with your loved ones. Give 
them a call and find out. At least you know 
that you have a chance If they don't hang 
up on you. Ask them If they still live at the 
old address. You never know. They may 
not want to see that you've gotten fat, 
grown a beard, wear a fish lure earring or 
have gone braless. Be preparedl Try this 
test: tell your parents that you miss them 
dearly and would really love to see them, 
but there is no way that you can scrape up 
the money to afford the ticket for home. If 
they pull the Reaganomics stunt or claim 

niceties that entail a trip home or else- 
where. It would also cut down on a lot of 
expenses. Surely, we poor ones have no 
choice. We have to stay In Boston, and 
work at our part-time jobs Just to get by. 
Boston is nice, but a vacation Just Isn't a 
vacation unless you get away from the 
grand city. Since these times are so few 
and so quick to pass us by, we must make 
the most of them. 

A second alternative Is home. It would be 
nice to see Mom and Dad and the rest of 
the family after such a long time. They, too, 
would be Just as thrilled to see their under- 
graduate children. Or would they? This 

that they will be In Chicago trading beef 
that week then you are In trouble. The Uni- 
versity has a very useful counseling service 
that you can utilize and it's strictly confi- 

When you do go home you can count on 
nothing to do. None of your friends from 
home have vacation during the same time 
as Northeastern students do. Seeing the 
family again is wonderful for about two full 
days, but then what? It gets so bad that 
you start wishing that you were back at 
school, which Is sick. You Just can't win. 

A third, more popular alternative is to go 
somewhere. This is a real vacation. There 

are many places to go and see. There are 
winter activities and summer activities. Ol 
course, they all require money. But, that's 
easy to obtain, especially If you are the 
Industrious, work-study student who works 
at minimum wage, lasts every other week, 
and washes his clothes with rocks In the 
Charles river. By the time your senior year 
rolls around, you can have saved as much 
as $500. That should take care of all the 
expenses for a week's vacation, or you 
can buy books for the last quarter and 
have enough left over for a Reese's Peanut 
Butter Cup. 

Once you have decided to go on vaca- 
tion, the decision about where to go comes 
next. No college would be an American 
Institution registered with the United States 
board of Academic Institutions unless they 
had the annual late winter-early spring 
venture to Florida. It's unheard of and 
could constitute legal action If a school has 
no trip to Florida. Just the brochures posted 
all around the school are enough to moti- 
vate you to find out If It's all true. I was 
always curious why the brochures didn't 
show all the students who suffered 3rd de- 
gree burns from too much exposure to the 
sun. Or why they don't show the guys heav- 
ing over the hotel balcony because of too 
much brew. I guess you Just have to read 
between the lines. 

Let's face Itl Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, 
and Daytona are fine for Mickey, Disney 
and alligators, but Florida-break-students 
are after other game. It's time to let loose. 
Guys get to view a whole range of girls, or 
guys depending on the preference, and 
vice versa. Best of all, you don't have to 
see that person ever again, especially If 
they are from some college In Kansas or 
parts unknown. That Is provided you don't 
give out your name, address, and tele- 
phone number while you're In a drunken 



An old boyfriend once told me that vir- 
ginity Is nothing more than a state of mind. 
He learned this from an old girlfriend of his 
who had apparently changed her state of 
mind numerous times. 

What Is this thing called virginity? 

Webster's New World Dictionary defines 
It as "the state of being virgin, pure, clean, 
untouched, etc." Etcetera? 

So what defines a virgin? There's the Vir- 
gin Mary, Virgin Queen (Elizabeth) and vir- 
gin wool. (I have a sweater that's 100 per- 
cent virgin acrylic, but that's another sto- 

Technically, a virgin Is a male (yes, sorry 
to break it to you) or female who has never 
had sexual Intercourse. They are, there- 
fore, pure and untouched. 

Gimme a break. 

There are plenty of virgins who have 
been touched at numerous times and in 
numerous places. 

And many more of these Individuals are 
leaving things at that. They don't care If 
their partners strike out before they get to 
third base. They believe that the special 
union between two people Is just that- 
—special — and opt to wait for that certain 
person to enter their lives. 

There's always guilt, that Invisible chasti- 
ty belt that keeps zippers up and panty- 
hose intact. Many a woman has claimed to 
see her mother's face staring down at her 
from the ceiling during sex and has felt 
terrible about It afterward. 

It seems as If parental pressures not to 
and peer pressures to go ahead and try It 
are no longer making people's decisions 
for them. They say "no" when they mean It 
and "yes" when they're really ready, 
whether or not It's before marriage. 

You see, It's often the first time that's 
most Important to a person. And everyone 
wants It to go Just right. 

Young adult women of today often look 
back on that first time, sometimes with 
fondness, more often with pain. Young 
men, on the other hand, usually boast 
about "my first lay." These run more along 
the lines of fishermen's stories, and rarely 
get to the one that got away. 

Oddly the men's stories often outnumber 
the women's. Either they're all lying or 
there are some poor girls out there giving 
the rest of us a bad name. 

Getting back to virginity. It's not really 
Important anymore who Is or who Isn't. Or 
when, why or how. 

What feels right Is what counts. 


I was in the middle of my toughest quar- 
ter. Five required classes. I had at least five 
papers to write and of course I was at least 
seven chapters behind In all classes. The 
pain started In my jaw, you know that dull, 
numb feeling. Soon It became Intolerable 
and I found myself face-to-face with my 
dentist. Sure enough I had four Impacted 
wisdom teeth which had nowhere to grow 
and were knocking the line of my teeth out 
of whack. The choice I had was to have 
them out Immediately or to wait and get 
braces. There was no way in hell that I 
would get braces at my age, especially 
after making fun of all my tinsel-teeth 
friends In high school. 

I made It through finals week and found 
myself at the oral surgeon's office a week 
before Christmas. (Great, I told myself, I 
won't gain an ounce this holldayl) He told 
me he does not believe In putting people to 
sleep— so I would have to remain con- 
scious. PANICII SHEER PANIC!! He gave me 
alot of pain killers so I really didn't feel 
anything until the drilling started. Even 
when they broke my teeth It didn't really 
hurt, Just psychosis I guess. 

Tho operation took three hours. I felt fine 
until the next day. Even with the Perkadan, 
my mouth was sore. I found that chocolate 
milk and Haagan Daz helped remedy me. 
Soon I ran out of my Perkadan and found 
out I had not quite healed right. Food Just 
kept getting stuckl I cursed the doctor and 
everything else In sight ... I cursed my 
mom, my boyfriend and I also cursed the 
scale for lying about the fact that I had 
gained weight. Eventually I healed up — but 
those five pounds .... 


Yawns are boring. Yawning Is boring. 
Watching people yawn Is boring. Most like- 
ly, people who watch people yawn are 
boring. But sometimes, there's nothing bet- 
ter to do In the 8:00 a.m. class. 

Yawns are also suggestive. Remember 
riding the Green Line during the morning 
rush hour? The doors open and someone at 
the stop Is yawning. Then, before you know 
It, you too are yawning. Weird, isn't It? Is 
this some kind of body language? Does this 
mean that the other person Is trying to In- 
sinuate that you are boring? Once you 
have the yawn, what do you do with It? The 
easiest thing to do with a yawn Is pass It 
on. Usually, the person beside you will take 
It whether they want It or not. 

It appears that yawns will need a little 
more Investigation before proceelng fur- 
ther. According to Webster's New Ameri- 
can Edition, a yawn Is "to open mouth In- 
voluntarily through sleepiness." The cause 
for yawns has been under carefully Imple- 
mented scientific studies. Results show 
that yawns are caused by an Involuntary 
reflex by the body to acquire more oxy- 
gen. Only In America could a study such as 
this find funding. Where was the study con- 
ducted—In church? Who were the subjects 
of such a study and what were they like? 
Were they boring, or were they just bored? 

Everybody yawns. Dogs, cats, guinea 
pigs and other assorted species of animal 
known to Noah yawn. Do whales, sharks 
and fish yawn? Sounds like the grounds for 
another study. Maybe we can get Jacques 
Cousteau to do the film documentary? Fish 
are so cute on TV. Hey, has anyone ever 
seen Mrs. Cousteau? We see Jacques' 
sons all the time on the Calypso In their 
little scuba outfits, but where Is she? May- 
be the Incredible Mr. Llmpett holds the key 
to the answer. Maybe Mr. Llmpett has been 
fooling around with Mrs. Cousteau. Maybe 
we should let Marlon Perkins of the "Wild 
Kingdom" do the documentary to avoid 
controversy. This will surely cause a lot of 
yawns before putting you to sleep. 

Just for fun, let's list all the things that 
make us yawn. How about the Sunday 
sports pages? Personally, I could care less 

that the Boston College football team got 
brand new white socks for spring practice, 
and that the trainer had to personally help 
three players put theirs on. C'mon fellas! 
There has to be something more pertinent 
going on somewhere. I'll try and think 
about It tomorrow morning during my 8:00 
a.m. . 

Hey, if you made it all the way through 
this story . . . take a yawn. You deserve It.

zoo crew 

If you want to visit the zoo here In Boston, 
you don't have to go far. In fact, you don't 
even have to leave campus. Just head to 
section 30 of the Matthews Arena. That's 
right, section 30. For that Is the home of 
Northeastern's own Zoo Crew, The wildest 
bunch of Huskies on the East Coast. 

Led by the Zookeeper himself, Greg LeB- 
lane, the Zoo Crew has become a standard 
feature at football, basketball and hockey 
games. And, what first sets them apart 
from the crowd Is their appearance. Their 
clothes are wild and crazy and their faces 
are always painted In some new and un- 
usual patterns, In school colors of course. 

The Zoo's appeal doesn't stop at Just 
looks alone. They taunt and tease the 
cheerleaders, swing rubber chickens in the 
air, wave Husky Hankies at opposing play- 
ers In the penalty box and occasionally 
strip for the fans. The Zoo has helped to 
make NU sports a participation event for 

everyone. They've gotten many fans out of 
their seats and moving and yelling. They 
helped Introduce new cheers like, "slve," 
"Jaws", and "four G." Most fans would also 
agree that the Zoo has also changed the 
school song from "All Hail Northeastern" to 
"When you've said Northeastern, You've 
said It all." 

Whether our sports teams win or lose, the 
Zoo Crew has made going to a game like 
going to a party. They've given a new 
meaning and boost to school spirit — so- 
mething this campus has needed for a long 

We all may have laughed at those 
strange looking guys with the painted 
faces and Symphony Bordello T-shirts a 
year ago. But, their enthusiasm seem to be 
contagious. For a few days or nights a 
week the Zoo Crew helps us to forget our 
troubles and feel like kids again. After all, 
Isn't a Zoo for the young at heart? 


NU Choral 

The fall of 1982 developed into the most 
successful quarter the choral society has 
experienced In many years. Eighty singers 
turned out for the Choral Society's produc- 
tion of Handel's Messiah." 

After nine weeks of rigorous rehearsals, 
the Choral Society performed, with full or- 
chestra and professional soloists, to a full 
house. A standing ovation confirmed the 
fact that the arts are in fact, very much 
alive at Northeastern. 

Music is the primary reason these 80 vo- 
calists got together. After all, performing 
"Messiah" is an experience every singer 
longs to do. But, secondary to the musical 
experience, Is the social experience. Many 
Northeastern students and alumni Join the 
Choral Society for precisely that reason, 
and this past year gave many people a 
chance to make new friends and socialize. 

Besides the many rehearsals, there were 
many successful parties held at members 
homes which brought the group closer to- 
gether and thus enhanced their music. 

An overnight trip to Northeastern's War- 
ren Center In Ashland, Massachusetts al- 
lowed for extra rehearsal time. But, more 
Importantly, It was the adhesive that 
formed friendships through the sharing of a 
common enjoyed experience: performing 
and singing with a group. 

And Outing 


The Northeastern University Hus-skiers 
and Outing Club (NUHOC) was originally a 
downhill skiing club. However, as the club 
expanded Its activities In the outdoors, It 
also expanded Its name. Skiing Is now only 
one of the many Interests and skills pur- 
sued by NUHOC members. 

Trips are run nearly every week. They 
Include backpacking, skiing, biking, rock 
climbing and canoeing. Trips are run all 
over New England to such places as Mt. 
Mansfield, the Maine coast, around town, 
Boston Harbor, and of course, the White 
Mountains. Most trips are planned accord- 
ing to the Interest shown, while some are 
spur-of-the-moment social events, Includ- 
ing dining out, day canoeing and bicycling. 

The Brown Memorial Lodge, located In 
the White Mountains, Is owned and operat- 
ed by NUHOC. This rustic facility accomo- 
dates 40 people as a base for hiking, snow- 
shoeing, mountain climbing, and skiing 
(downhill and cross country). 

An open eating and living area provides 
seats and tables, a fireplace, and a good 
view of the White Mountains. Outside struc- 
tures Include the pumphouse, the wood 
shed, and the outhouse. 

The club owns a variety of equipment, 
Including sleeping bags, backpacks, tents, 
canoes, bicycle panniers, and rock climb- 
ing gear. 

NUHOC offers students an opportunity to 
get off campus for a few hours, or to es- 
cape the city for the weekend. Most of all, 
the club offers a chance to learn, to grow, 
and to form lasting friendships. 


After 12 years operating at 91.7 FM WRBB changed fre- 
quency to 104.9 FM during the 1982-83 school year. The 
move up the dial was made to comply with an FCC ruling 
which told 10 watt stations they would go out of business 
unless they upgraded to a minimum of 100 watts or found 
alternative spots on the dial. 

The station run by Northeastern University students has 
attracted a large and loyal audience. The Boston Globe's 
Jeff McLaughlin put It this way, "Boston's smallest radio 
station Is WRBB-FM with just 10 watts emanating from 
Northeastern University's Ell Student Center. But, while Its 
reach Is limited to a two or three mile radius, Boston's 
housing patterns mean WRBB's programming Is perfectly 
suited for Its primary audience. WRBB comes In loud and 
clear to Its extraordinarily loyal llstenershlp In black com- 
munities In Roxbury, Dorchester, and the South End." 

In addlton to Its music programmllng WRBB also covers 
Northeastern University Varsity Sports and provides news 
and Public Affairs programs. 

The station has also been a springboard sending North- 
eastern University graduates to radio and TV around the 





Learning at the College of Business 
Adminstration extends far beyond the 
classroom and the workplace. Knowl- 
edge also Is gained through extracurri- 
cular activltes that allow students to in- 
teract with their peers, with faculty and 
staff, and with members of the business 

Working in close relationship with As- 
sistant Dean Dennis Ramsier and other 
members of the administration, The 
Business Student Advisory Committee 
(BSAC) serves as a liaison between un- 
dergraduate students and administra- 

Its primary role Is to promote open 
channels of communication within the 
college community. 

BSAC members are responsible for 
publishing The Quarterly Report for stu- 
dents (to keep them aware of both the 
committee's and administration's ac- 
tivities that directly affect them) and for 
conducting the quarterly teacher/ 
course evaluation used by students In 
selecting courses and by faculty for de- 
velopmental and self-improvement pur- 

In addition, BSAC introduced several 
new programs for undergraduates, in- 
cluding the popular Concentration 
Seminar Series. Attracting more than 
350 students, the seminars provided 
students in the Business College and 
other colleges, with Information on the 
various concentrations or majors avail- 
able at the college and on career paths 
open to undergraduates. 

Members of BSAC become involved in 
the decision-making process on policies 
affecting the college and they learn a 
great deal about group Interaction. The 
learning that takes place through in- 
volvement helps develop members per- 
sonally and professionally to a level 
that will benefit them In dally encoun- 
ters on and off campus.

The Northeastern University Model Railroad Club 
was founded in 1965, and has since become one of 
the most active centers of railroad information and 
re-creation in the Boston area. 

The club has an active membership of 15, and 
alumnus memberships of more than 60, mostly 
made up of transportation and engineering majors. 

The Model Railroad club maintains an extensive 
library of railroad related periodicals In their office In 
252 EC, and is currently in the process of modeling 
selected areas of the Green Line T operations, In- 
cluding the familiar stop here, on campus. 

The group Is looking for a larger and more perma- 
nent home to base from which to expand their hob- 
by, but In the meantime, they are making track 
where they can.

Beta Gamma 

Beta Gamma Epsilon Is Northeastern'* 
largest fraternity, chartered In 1919. The 
frat Is comprised solely of engineering, 
computer, math and science students. 

They're located at 234 Commonwealth 
Ave. In the Back Bay, "within walking dis- 
tance of literally hundreds of girls," ac- 
cording to their Introduction letter. 

The house has many honor students and 
Is very active In many social events on 
campus, from blood drives and telethons 
to the famous Greek Week Festival. They 
regularly compete In basketball, Softball 
and football as part of an Interfraternlty 
league. And, right In their house, they have 
a pool table, plnball machines, a piano, a 
beverage machine and a bar with a built-in 
cooler (designed by one of the mechanical 
engineering members). One BGE member 
writes, "Life at BGE has certainly been full 
of rewarding experiences for me. Since 
Joining In January of 1980, I have seen a 
whole new part of NU, that I never saw 
when I was a commuting student. 

"As a commuter I considered NU a fac- 
tory, and I was Just doing my time and leav- 
ing. But, when I Joined the frat, schooling at 
NU took on a whole new meaning. 

"BGE Is comprised solely of engineering 
students which greatly helped out our un- 
dergrad tutorials, which we began this 

"The tutorials were mainly organized by 
Gary Bohan, who was our president, Divi- 
sion B. 

"Thinking back over the past year, many 
fun times come to mind. Who can forget our 
vibrant house parties highlighted by our 
Halloween bash? Homecoming weekend 
was another memorable lost weekend. Fri- 
day night was an all-nighter In building our 
Homecoming Float." 

The BGE float, "Raiders of the Lost Bar," 
took first place In homecoming competi- 
tions this year.

You've probably seen them marching 
around campus In formation looking very 
much like clones- those distinctive, apple- 
green caps with salmon-pink Ivy leaves 

sewn to the front, those shin-length tranch 
coats. These have become the colorful 
trademarks to an even more colorful soror- 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, 
stands out as one of the nations largest and ol- 
dest black sororities with chapters In 44 states In 
the United States as well as chapters In West 
Africa, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Germany 
and Liberia. 

"We look alike because during pledging we 
are not Individuals but components of a whole. 
When I was pledging there were 9 people on my 
line- "Pink Radiance"- and we were 9 parts of a 
whole," said Lisa Chapman, 2nd Antl-Baslleus 
(second vice-president) of Northeastern's chap- 

Chapman says that the four to six week pledge 
period Is used to acquaint the soon-to-be sisters 
with the groups history and fellow members. Dur- 
ing pledging the girls are not allowed to date and 
must study together for three to four hours every- 

AKA, which was founded In 1908 at Howard 
University In Washington, O.C. and Incorporated 
In 1913, boats 100,000 members that Include 
honorary members: Coretta Scott King; retired 
Representative Cardlss Collins; the late Eleanor 
Roosevelt; and jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald. 

Northeastern's 18 member chapter of AKA, 
lota Gamma, one of three undergraduate 
capters In the Boston area, works outside the 
parameters of the popular concept that all sorori- 
ties and fraternatles are boozing Animal House 
types — stuck In some prankish adolescent time 
warp. Instead they remain a progressive, consci- 
entious group who still keep sight of the founding 
sisters objectives and motto " Service to all man- 
kind. " 

" For Thanksgiving we sponsored a canned 
food drive party. In order to get Into the party you 
had to bring cans of food, the food was then 
donated to The Boston Food Program for the 
needy," said Chapman. 

In addition to the canned food drive, the group 
also participates In the March-of-Dlmes Walk- A- 
Thon and sponsors an annual health seminar 
which focuses on current health problems. They 
are also contributors to the United Negro College 

But what draws young black women Into this 
selective and often esoteric organization? Lisa, a 
20-year-old mlddler from Philadelphia, explains 
what was so appealing to her: " Upon coming to 
Northeastern, and attending functions given by 
lota Gamma Chapter, I wanted to learn more 
about the sorority. Many things about them Im- 
pressed me, but one of the things I was really 
Impressed with was the unity they displayed — 
the sisterhood my friends told me about. I was 
also Impressed by the fact that Alpha Kappa Al- 
pha was the first black sorority. After talking to a 
friend who was an AKA at Northeastern, I knew 
that I wanted to be a part of the organization. " 

While Lisa says that the reasons for Joining AKA 
may differ from member to member, they all 
agree that the sisterhood and unity are the un- 
derlying causative agents. 




Delta Sigma Theta is a Public 
Service Sorority, founded at How- 
ard University in Washington D.C. 
on January 13, 1913. Today the 
organization has well over 
100,000 members and over 689 
chapters In the United States, 
West Germany, Republic of Haiti,

young, enthusiastic women on Northeastern University's cam- 

It Is a sorortly for women In the engineering and engineering 
related fields. The sorority requires that Its members be of sound 
mind and have a strong character, Intelligence and dedication. 

Sigma Beta Epsilon was Incorporated In the state of Massachu-

ter, the second chapter, was established at Rutgers University In 
New Jersey. 

Sigma Beta Epsilon strives to provide public services to stimu-

tinues to provide the campus communi- 
ty with an outlet for communication be- 
tween the administration and the stu- 
dent/faculty body. 

The News staff Is more than Just Jour- 
nalism students. Business majors, engi- 
neers, physical therapists, and all other 
concentrations are Invited and encour- 
aged to give their support. 

And, there Is hope for the future: three 
video display terminals were recently 
Installed In the newspaper's Ell Center 
offices. Just maybe, the News\s coming 
of age. 


A course In wine tasting at NU? It's Just as 
common as belly dancing In the New Horizons 
mini course program. Sponsored by the De- 
partment of Student Activities, these courses 
are offered quarterly In the evenings. The turn- 
out Is large, as Is evidenced by the lines that 
go from the Ballroom all the way out of the 
Student Lounge on registration night. The pro- 
gram was begun In the winter of 1978 and has 
grown by leaps and bounds ever since. The 
classes utilize many of the Student Center fa- 
cilities, such as the gameroom, typewriters, 
the kitchen, and large rooms (for exercise and 
dance classes). Some of the more popular 
courses Include CPR, aerobic dance, mas- 
sage, and mixology.

Today's leaders In the Armed Forces are mainly drawn from 
colleges. A large reason for this Is the presence of a program 
called the Reserve Officers Training Corps. This program, bet- 
ter known as ROTC, provides the nation's protective forces 
with educated soldiers trained In leadership, military science, 
and a vocational specialty. 

Northeastern has an Army ROTC program of about 300 
cadets. Students prepare for military careers with many extra 
courses. These Include the traditional classroom approach as 
well as field training exercises. Exercises In the field Include 
rapelllng, helicopter extraction, and live weapon fire. 

NU Bands 

The Northeastern University Bands Is an organization 
consisting of a large number of students Interested In an 
activity that can challenge them musically while providing 
them with a variety of ways to make their collegiate ca- 
reer a more enjoyable one. An activity such as this Is very 
Important In a university like Northeastern where, because 
of the large number of commuting students, one can have 
a tendency to feel very lost among the crowd. 

Northeastern's Bands consist of the following: 

A concert band which practices twice a week and per- 
forms quarterly concerts. In the winter, the band goes on 
tour. In the past, they have been to such places as Mon- 
treal, Canada and Washington, D.C. This year they went to 
Quebec City, Canada. This Is the most formal of all the 

A marching band which practices Saturday mornings 
and plays In the stands, and on the field at halftlme at all 
home and away football games. Football fans could find 
the band performing anything from precision marching all 
the way to one of their more "creative" shows. 

A pep band which performs at all home and some away 
hockey and basketball games, and even at crew meets. 
Highlights have been: 1980 Beanpot win, 1982 NCAAs In 
both hockey and basketball, and Eastern Sprints and IRAs 
In crew. In addition to playing at the games, the pep band 
Is also well known for Its cheers. 

A jazz band which practices once a week and performs 
quarterly concerts; often along with guest soloists. This Is 
especially good for those people who like Improvisation. 
They have frequently appeared In the Rathskellar and en- 
Joyed a trip to the Cape for an appearance. 

The NU Bands also consist of numerous small chamber 
groups and soloists. 

The NU Bands are under the direction of Matthew McGar- 
rell, with the exception of the Jazz Band which Is under the 
direction of Dennis Miller. The band Is run by a council of 
officers consisting of a number of devoted band members 
who spend long hours working hard to make sure everyth- 
ing runs smoothly. This council holds meetings once a 
week where most of the decisions of the organization are 
made. The officers for Division A were: Carol Wilcox, Presi- 
dent; Hal Torman, Secretary; Sue Cuthbertson, Treasurer; 
Bill Kyrloglou, Manager; Scott Rlbelro, Librarian; Mary Hoff- 
man, Concert Coordinator; Matthew McGarrell, Advisor. 
Division B officers were: Paul Arsenault, President; Chris 
Morse, Secretary; Steve Welsse, Treasurer; Larry Crlstlano, 
Manager; David Brlllhart, Librarian; Clare Morrison, Con- 
cert Coordinator; Matthew McGarrell, Advisor.

Husky blood 
saves lives 

Every quarter, the Red Cross encourages NU 
students to give It up — their blood that Is. 

That's because Northeastern students have a 
tendency to hang onto their blood more than stu- 
dents In any other college In the area. On the 
average, only 5 percent of the students at NU 
give up their blood, compared to 50 percent at 

That Information comes from Franclne Connors, 
area coordinator for the Red Cross, who says, 
"The potential Is most definitely there at North- 
eastern, we're Just not tapping Into It." 

Faculty and staff donations also have been 
sparse, and donating blood, which used to be 
considered a responsibility, Is no longer says 

However the need for blood has Increased 
even while donations have faltered. 

During more recent drives, members of various 
student activities have gotten Involved, working 
with the Red Cross to Increase the participation 
rate here. Julie Field, of the Student Government 
Assoc, has long been very active In the quest for 
blood, and during the drive last February, Mike 
Beauchemln of the Student Union put In a lot of 
time as did members of the Hus-sklers and Outing 
Club (NUHOC). 

In addition, members of the staff at NU's own 
WRBB, 104.9 FM, publicize the quarterly event 
over the airwaves and frequently conduct live 
broadcasts from at the donation site, talking to 
donors as they're giving blood. 

The entire procedure takes about an hour, but 
the actual donation time seldom exceeds seven 
minutes. The donor registers and goes through a 
brief physical screening. Then comes the dona- 
tion, and afterwards: rest and refreshments, usu- 
ally tasty sugar wafers. 

Silver Masque 

(Part Two . . . . ) 

The Silver Masque, In conjunction with the department of 
drama, presents five full scale products each academic 
year, and also student shows. All acting roles and techni- 
cal work Is done by students under faculty supervision. 
There are also opportunities for students to direct, design, 
and even write plays for production. 

The Silver Masque Is open to any part-time or full-time 
student, with the only qualification being an Interest In 
some aspect of the theater. 

The officers for 1983 were: Joseph O'Leary, President; 
Rachel Kuhr, Secretary /Treasurer; Mary Zarzeckl, Publicity 

The 1982-1983 season consisted of: 
"The Real Inspector Hound," by Tom Stoppard; August 18 

and 19, 1982 
"The Water Engine," by David Mamet; Dec. 3 and 4, 1982 
"A Servant of Two Masters", by Carlo Goldonl; Feb. 24-26, 

"A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot", by Tennessee 

Williams; March 10, 1983

cheers means 

Northeastern has seen a new surge In 
school spirit with the success of our sports 
teams. Probably the two best examples of 
Husky spirit are Jim Qullty and Laurie McFarlln, 
alias Mr. and Mrs. Husky. 

For Jim and Laurie, being Mr. and Mrs. Husky 
means more thn ]ust dressing up In costumes. 
They are official symbols for the teams and 
the University Itself. As such, they are expect- 
ed to conduct themselves In a manner that 
reflects a positive Image of Northeastern. Both 
have rules to follow, many of which are unwrit- 
ten. One unwritten rule Is that one or both of 
them should attend the home and away sport- 
ing events. The Mr. and Mrs. attend most foot- 
ball and basketball games. They are also two 
of the few mascots who attend college hock- 
ey games. For other sports the pair will ap- 
pear If It a big game or If they are requested 


Jim sees Mr. Husky as playing an Important 
role with the fans. "You have a relationship 
with them, as a group and one-on-one", he 
says. For him, one of the most Important duties 
Is to pay attention to the fans and make them 
feel that they function as a go-between to 
break the barrier between the players and 
fans. They give attention to both NU fans and 
NU rivals as well. Often obscenities are yelled 
out at one or both of them. "Most other mas- 
cots Ignore such things", Jim said. But Mr. and 
Mrs. Husky play along with the crowd no mat- 
ter which side of the Arena they happen to be 
sitting on. 

Fans and players alike enjoy having the Hus- 
kies at events. However, those same adoring 
fans often give them flack If they don't show 
up at a game. Since there are two of them, at 

dog's life 

least one of the Huskies will appear at a 
game, It Is rare for both to be absent. Jim feels 
badly about missing games, like he Is letting 
people down. "By choice I would never miss a 
game" he adds. Laurie also expressed similar 
feeling. "For the women's Beanpot I was out 
with injuries and both of us missed the game", 
she said. Since both are students that must 
contend with classes and co-op like the rest of 
us, absences are sometimes unavoidable. 

To solve the problem of "the missing 
Husky," the mascots have considered alter- 
nates. But, Laurie feels It wouldn't be fair to the 
fans. People get used to a certain style. With 
alternates It's hard to get consistency. 

How did two normal college kids end up 
playing school mascots? Jim was quick to re- 
lay the story of how It started for them. As a 
freshman, Jim lived on the same floor as for- 
mer Mr. Husky, Pat Lott. Pat couldn't go to a 
football game one afternoon and asked Jim If 
he would like to fill In for the day. Jim went and 
reflects, "I didn't know how to act as Mr. 
Husky". Consequently, he didn't enjoy himself 
and never wanted to do It again. Eventually, 
he thought It over and decided that being Mr. 
Husky was something he wanted to do. He's 
been leading a "dog's life" ever since. 

When Mr. Husky took a bride In the spring of 
1981, Jim was faced with the task of finding 
someone to fill her paws. Jim's girlfriend at the 
time wanted the Job and served as Mrs. Husky 
for a day. "She Just wasn't right for It" he said. 
So, he asked Laurie, a friend of his, If she 
would like to give it a shot. She did, and they 
have been happily married ever since. 

The Mr. and "Ms.", as she prefers to be 
called, remembered what It was like at their 
first game together. "It was great, everything 
clicked", they said. Both had, and still have, a 
sense of what each one will do without saying 
a word. They play off each other, it's sponta- 
neous, which Is Important to them. It has 
helped them grow Into a relationship, though 
they don't date each other. Their closeness 
and spontaneity have helped them make the 
most out of mishaps during a performance. 
Once during a hockey game Ms. Husky acci- 
dentally pulled Mr. Husky's tall off. Before put- 
ting it back on she decided to take advantage 
of the situation by throwing the tall to the 
ground and pounding on It with a hockey 
stick. . The crowd loved It. 

For Laurie, dressing up In a costume Is noth- 
ing new. The Vermont native has also por- 
trayed Chippy the Squirrel and the Easter Bun- 
ny. She also was a cheerleader In high school. 
Laurie feels that with her background In Com- 
munication and Drama and her interest In Pub- 
lic Relations, the Job has been of great benefit 
to her. Jim, on the other hand, has never done 
anything like this before. While attending high 
school In New York, Jim was the equivalent of 
a Zoo Crew member. This undoubtedly aids In 
his rapport with Oreg LeBlanc and his cast of 

If the Job of being a mascot seems easy 
think again. Laurie and Jim both agreed that It 
takes a big commitment and lots of time. Be- 
sides the duties of appearing at games and 
special events, they both attend cheering 
practices to coordinate their moves with the 
squads. Cheering practices alone can last up 
to three hours apiece. Top those with a few 
games and It adds up to little or no social life. 

Most problems arise from constantly being 

In the public eye as a mascot. Laurie prefers to 
remain anonymous sometimes for various rea- 
sons. The number one reason Is probably that 
people often Introduce them as Mr. and Mrs. 
Husky and not as Jim and Laurie. Once people 
know who they are, they tend to scrutinize 
them when both are together but out of cos- 
tume. People want to see how they act when 
out of character. Like most other celebrities, 
Laurie and Jim prefer some privacy. 

Even though problems do exist, Laurie and 
Jim reap unlimited benefits from the Job. The 
biggest benefit has come In the form of per- 
sonal satisfaction and development. "You 
have a lot to be concerned with. People look 
up to you", was Jim's comment. It makes 
them feel great when the fans congratulate 
them on a Job well done. Many fans also re- 
member things that Mr. and Mrs. Husky have 
done In the past. It lets them know that their 
effort to reach out to the fans Is working and 

Though both are Sophomores, they have al- 
ready met many officials at the University who 
are often excited to meet with them. The Job 
has opened many doors for both and allowed 
them to meet people and travel all over. Lau- 

rie was even Interviewed by Real People be- 
cause of her role as Ms. Husky. 

In the future, Laurie would like to see new 
costumes made for the Mr. and Mrs. And, both 
would like to see a scholarship established for 
the position. Right now, neither receives a sti- 
pend. Jim added, "I wouldn't want to be 
(paid)". Laurie will continue her duties as Ms. 
Husky next year while Jim is planning his re- 
tirement. When asked If there was any advice 
he would give to his successor, his answer 
was simple. "I would tell him It's an important 
position. You have to perform. You have to be 
active. And, you have to give 110%." He also 
feels that a mascot should take advantage of 
the opportunity to have fun. "Mr. and Mrs. 
Husky are above and beyond the person In 
the costume", he added. 

Sometimes, If they've had a tough day. Lau- 
rie and Jim may find It difficult to get psyched 
for a game. Once the costume Is on, however, 
they feel great. They both have a lot of people 
to thank for support, Including Judy Gross, the 
Band and the Zoo Crew. It Is a big commitment 
for two people but one tradition that they 
hope will continue at Northeastern for a long 
time to come. 


Student Government 

This year, the Student Government Association worked In a variety of 
areas. SGA sponsored the first student referendum In twenty-one years, 
giving students the opportunity to vote on the Student Activities Fee and the 
Recreation Complex Proposal. SGA presented a plan to the Faculty Senate 
which calls for a mandatory, unlverslty-wlde Teacher Course Evaluation pro- 

In the fall, SGA sponsored the American Student Association (ASA) New 
England Regional Conference. Northeastern students Paul Caruso, Julie Field, 
and Mlchele Gaudlano are officers In the ASA. 

SGA also continued Its sponsorship of the HELP Legal Aid Plan and Its work 
with the Budget Review Committee and the Student Center Committee. 

The officers were: Paul Caruso, President; John Flynn, First Vice-President; 
Julie Field, Second Vice-President; Heidi Stevens, Secretary; Mlchele Gau- 
dlano, Treasurer. 

NU students: stand up and take notice! 

Imagine that you're a member of a small (or large) organization here at N.U., and you're going to have an event that you want to tell 
the whole student body about. 

How do you spread the word In a school this size? 

Well, first of all, half the students are probably on co-op ... so maybe you'd want to send them all a notice through the mall. A great 
Idea If you've got the budget for all those stamps and the correct co-op addresses. 

How about talking to the people who are talcing classes? Considering the number of commuters, and the number of students who have 
Interests outside the university, the best time to catch someone's attention Is while they're on campus. 

Here are some of the ways currently available to attract attention: 




7a IT it 198*. 

KEEP THEM HANGING — Paint your message onto a sheet and hang It from the 
front of the Ell building. It will greet students as they walk In each day, and 
provide a constant reminder to those hanging out In the quad. Of course, this 
must be submitted to the staff In 152 EC, and your sheet must comply with the 
regulations available within. 


POST IT — Posters that catch the eye are a great way to advertise, and 
Northeastern has specially designated places to put them. Just make sure 
you have them stamped; at the Information booth If you're going to put them 
In the Ell building, or in the housing office If you want to hit the dorms. If you 
don't get them approved, the operational assistants will take them down- 
—simple as that. 

MAKE AIRWAVES— Our own radio station, WRBB, 104.9 FM, Is 
a public service oriented station. All you need do Is submit a 
clearly written announcement to their staff In 474 EC. This 
medium Is an effective one for reaching commuters and mem- 
bers of the black community which make up a large part of 
WRBB's large, loyal audience. 


PUT IT IN LIGHTS— The Electronic Message Board greets com- 
muters each day with news of events, and it's a great place 
for your message. Just fill out the special forms available In 
152 EC. 

TARGET ACTIVE STUDENTS— Tell other students that get Involved at NU: members 
of other student groups. Just write a short memo, make about 150 copies and 
drop them off In the student activities mailboxes In 255 EC. You'll reach campus 
media, fraternities and sororities, ethnic groups, special interest groups. 

GET IT IN PRINT — Both campus weeklies, The Northeastern News and 
The Northeastern Edition have calender listings of events and week- 
ly meetings. Just get In touch with their editorial staff. Or, better yet, 
provide them with a press release or enough material for an Inter- 
esting feature article, and you'll get the kind of coverage you can't 

TOLL FREE TALK— Put your event on the highly publicized NU Events Line by 
submitting your Information to 115 Richards Hall. A new recording Is made every 
day. To hear your message, Just dial 1-800-322-1277. 

DOOR OPENERS — Catch the eyes of passers-by with a 
little door decoration. Put up notices of eomlng events and 
other memorabilia of your group so that people walking by 
can see what your group is all about. You may find them 
knocking at your door.

Team Improves 

The football team may not be the best team 
we've ever had at NU, but it was better than 
last year's, ending up 3-6 this year. Lead by 
Junior quarterback Gregg Prebles, the running 
team of senior Rob Uhlman and freshman Gary 
Benoit, the Hounds managed a couple of wipe 
outs, smashing Central Connecticut 59-0 at the 
Homecoming game, but they also blew a cou- 
ple, with turnovers plaguing the Huskies most 
of the year. Benoit set the Husky rushing record 
with a 201-yard performance in the 30-10 rout- 
ing of American International College. Coach 
Paul Pawlak feels the team got a lot of exper- 
ience this year and looks forward to an im- 
proved season next year.

Homecoming Victory 
For Huskies, BGE 

Homecoming was something else this year. First of all, 
we won the football game 59-0, beating a far Inferior 
Central Connecticut team, and secondly, Pat Loft wasn't 
elected Mayor of Huntington Avenue. 

It was beautiful weather with the temperatures hover- 
ing around 60, and our illustrious leader, Kenneth G. 
Ryder presented the trophies and awards during the 
halftime festivities. He was wearing sunglasses, but ev- 
eryone know who he was. He was trying to be Inconspic- 
uous, but once you've seen that face, you don't forget 
it — even if it was freshman year. 

Anyway, the Mayor of Huntington Avenue is no longer 
Pat Loft, for some political reasons, or something like 
that, so Junior Gregg LeBlanc, the leader of the infamous 
Zoo Crew, is the new mayor and Lauren Dolber, also a 
Junior and co-captaln of the cheerleaders, is the home- 
coming queen. They couldn't have found two more ador- 
able people. 

For those of you who didn't attend, and that means 99 
percent of the senior class, the Huskies blew out the 
Division 2 team from Connecticut, but it wasn't even 
close. The Huskies scored 37 points in the first half, with 
Robbie Uhlman scoring the first two touchdowns, and 
then freshman tailback Gary Benoit, who looks to be hot 
stuff in the future, scored three straight TD's. It gets 
worse from there, but It's better than losing to Boston 

Six fraternities paraded floats with this year's theme 
being movies. The winner was Beta Gamma Epsllon, with 
Its entry of a rendition of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." They 
called theirs the "Raiders of the Lost Bar," 
(AAArrrggghhh). A lot of time must have gone Into those 
floats . . . It's too bad that whoever was running the show 
failed to realize that most of the spectators wouldn't be 
there 15 minutes prior to game time, so three of the six 
floats (the ones that lost in the preliminary Judging) were 
never viewed by a large majority of the reported 5500 

Overall, it was a fun day. Those of you who attended 
were lucky enough to see the Huskies win, a new Mayor 
elected, and your school president, Kenny Ryder. Is that 
a Homecoming or Is that a Homecoming?

Head Of The Charles : An Annual Event 

Amid the hundreds of boats — paddling and turning, 
waiting and watching, anticipating the three miles of 
grueling work— there is a serenity to be found on the 

For the 18th annual Head of the Charles Regatta thou- 
sands of spectators lined the shores and hung from the 
bridges, banners were waving and cheering filled the 
brisk October air. The rowers concentrate on each 
stroke, the rhythm of every splashing oar. 

It was a day of competition for more than 3200 rowers 
from the United States and Canada. More than 700 col- 
leges and 720 boats were represented in the event. But, 
It remained as always, a test for the rowers as indivi- 
duals working with a team. 

The men's crew under Coach Buzz Congram and Assis- 
tant Coach Bob Jaugstetter did well this year with the 
club eight placing 1st, the youth four placing 2nd and the 
championship youths placing 9th. The championship 
four placed 14th and the men's championship eight 
placed 1 1th due to Interference from a B.U. crew team. 

The women's program, now in its fifth year, has made 
vast Improvements as It continues to grow. This year the 
lightweight four placed fifth In the Head, the open four 
placed 18th and the varsity eight 29th.

Building Year 
For Strikers 

It was one of those years for the field 
hockey team, as they finished out the 
year with a 10-10 record. With the res- 
tructuring of the league, the Huskies 
were playing some tough games and 
losing by one-goal margins often. The 
Hounds have an upcoming star In fresh- 
man Sandy Costigan, who lead the 
team in scoring, with 14 goals and 2 
assists. The strikers must now wait until 
next year to try and improve on their 
record, and with the present team, it 
looks like a very realistic possibility.

Almost NCAAs 

The women's volleyball team finished Its most 
successful years ever, but fell short of reaching 
the NCAAs, a goal that came very close to be- 
coming a reality. Lead by seniors Leona Thomas, 
Alison Blgler, and Janet Belostl, Coach Chris Wy- 
man's team ended up with a 23-11 record, finish- 
ing 5th In the region. Wyman was very satisfied 
with the team's performance, but said with some 
good recruiting and less Injuries, the spikers 
could be in the Nationals in a couple of years.

The Women's Cross Country 
team deserves a lot ot credit tor Its 
fine showing this year. The female 
Harriers finished 13th In the NCAA 
qualifying meet, but finished 6th in 
the EAIAWs. For coach Tom Wit-

give the team hope of making the

Winter session 
in "the tank" 

The winter session. Crew athletes would never describe It as tun. 
Nor would they tell you they were In "ott season." The physical and 
psychic demands on crew athletes know no season. 

When Northeastern's crew teams come ott the water after com- 
petitive racing In the spring, summer, and fall, they keep their bo- 
dies In shape with a land training program that would rival that of 
any football player's. 

Up to two or more hours a day, six days a week are devoted to the 
sport, may of them spent In the dungeon of the Cabot Gym, a place 
known as the "tank." 

It Is here, amidst the exposed pipes that the crew athletes train; 
with weights, on the ergometers and In the tank Itself. 

The weight workouts Include free weights, a leg press, a rowing 
weight machine and time on the nautilus machines. The weight 
routines are designed to Improve muscle strength and endurance. 

The ergometer, the original rowing machine, tests objective 
strength and endurance of Individual athletes. The ergometer 
scores also are used to measure progress and compare athletes for 
a position In the boats. 

A workout In the tank, an Indoor rowing facility In which athletes 
work against dead water, Is a far cry from a workout In a shell. For 
one thing, the eight sliding seats and fixed foor stretchers are an- 
chored In cement, and balance-a make or break factor on the 
water-Is never a problem In the tank. However, tank rows are useful 
for developing Individual form and team rhythm, as well as strength 
and endurance. 

These sessions In the "tank" are supplemented with calisthenics, 
distance running, and sometimes participation In other sporting 
activities such as: cross country and downhill skiing, swimming, 
hiking, raquetball and even Judo. 

It's a lot of work, and even though crew athletes might not de- 
scribe their tank training In the bowels of the gym as "fun," they will 
tell you that the winter session helps develop a sense of community 
and purpose that carries over Into competition once they get on the 
water In the spring. 

The Women's tennis team fin- 
ished 7-5 this year for one of the 
finest finishes for the Huskies. 
Coach Dorett Hope was satis- 
fied with their record, especial- 
ly considering the tough compe- 
tition they faced this year. Some 
of the outstanding players for 
the Hounds were llene Lleber- 
man, Heidi Bertram, Sue Jarvls, 
Melissa Lorenz, Sue Murray and 
Jackie Staples. Some key victo- 
ries late In the season after a 
slow start lifted the Huskies to 
their success. They have proven 
that they can compete with bet- 
ter teams In New England, and 
all of them are looking forward 
to the Spring.

Dog day for Huskies: 
BC takes the beans 

It all looked so good going Into that tlnal game. The 
huskies hadn't lost at The Garden since last year's 
beanpot game (winning all of their ECAC games 
there). They had beaten Boston University the week 
before, after being down 3-0 In the second period and 
they were playing their favorite team to hate, Boston 
College. It all looked so good. Until the opening fa- 

Northeastern looked like a team playing out of "The 
Twilight Zone" ("A dimension not only of sight and 
sound, but of the mind.") They were a half-stride be- 
hind, a half-Inch away from the good passes. Not play- 
ing like the team we've grown to know and love. 

But we loved them the week before. 

Against BU, goals by Mark Plerog and two by Marc 
Sinclair put the Huskies down, but not quite out. Jim 
Madlgan scored on a rebound from the crease, Jim 
Averlll put a 45-foot screamer past goalie Cleon Das- 
kalakls and Randy Bucyk's goal tied the game, at 3:12 
of the third period. The game was then left up to fresh- 
man Greg Neary, who was taking Bucyk's turn on the 
Ice for that shift. Neary put the Huskies Into the finals 
for only the second time ever with a 4-1 victory. The 
Northeastern contingent was very excited. 

And then BC showed up. And show they did. And 
show off, they did. And show everyone that perhaps 
the Northeastern team that tied Boston College 1-1 In 
an earlier game that season wasn't the same team 
that they were playing that night. It didn't seem It to 
the average fan. "Did that look like the same NU 
team?" the average fan was asked. "No," said the 
average fan. 

The Huskies we were used to were hungry. They 
were hungry for a win. To scrap, to claw, to fight. But 
not that night. Down 6-1 with more than five minutes 
remaining In the second period, they were beaten. Not 
down quite yet, but beaten for the night. The final 
score was 8-2. Ultimately, neither team would make It 
to the ECAC playoffs. Both BU and Harvard, Beanpot 
losers, would advance. They survived a different 
game, but it was exciting wasn't It? 



Bucyk: An engineer on and off the ice 

The family that plays together . . 
. well, you know the rest of that 
one. In athletics, if one member of 
a family is an outstanding athlete, 
you can bet that another one will 
be coming along sooner or later, 
whether it be a brother, sister, son, 
daughter, nephew or niece. 

In baseball there are the Alou's, 
Perry's and Dean's. In football, 
there are the Olson's, Black- 
wood's and Bahr's. Basketball has 
the Joneses, Johnsons and . . . you 
get the picture. 

The Sutter family has contribut- 
ed five brothers to the National 
Hockey League. The Howe's gave 
us a father and two sons. And 
now, the Bucyk's have bestowed 
Boston the second part of an uncle 
and nephew team. 

Of course, the uncle is Boston 
Bruin great Johnny "Chief" Bucyk 
—one of the best left wingers ever 
to set skate on the ice, and the 
Bruins' all-time leading scorer. 
And, unless you're just coming out 
of a 2 V2 year coma, you know that 
the nephew Is Randy Bucyk, North- 
eastern's star center and leading 
scorer through the first eleven 
games of the season. 

Randy came to Northeastern 
from Edmonton, Alberta in 1980 
through the recruiting efforts of 
head coach Fern Flaman and the 
recommendations of his Uncle 
John. "Ferny sold me on the edu- 
cation at Northeastern and John 
was strong on Boston," Bucyk 
said. "I wanted to play college 
hockey, Division 1, and I wanted 
to play for a good team. Boston's 
Just great. It's number one for 
sports, fans and everything con- 

Bucyk feels no pressure to live 
up to his uncle's greatness. 

"He built the name for himself 
and deserves all of the credit he 
gets. We have two completely dif- 
ferent styles," Bucyk said referring 
to "The Chief's" physical left wing 
play compared to his own work at 
center ice for the Huskies. 

"If people want to compare me 
with John, then that's fine with me. 
I'm used to It," Randy said. 

Coach Flaman, who played with 
the elder Bucyk on the Bruins, con- 
siders Randy one of his top play- 
ers In the 13 years he has spent 
behind the bench at Northeastern. 
"He's a super kid, a team man, 

and a real winner," Flaman said. 
He considers him to be among the 
like of Jim Martell '79, Scot McKen- 
ney '82 and Chuck Marshall '82. 
"They're getting better with the 
years," Flaman said. 

Bucyk was also recruited by 
Yale, Harvard, and Princeton, but 
saw more potential In Northeas- 
tern's program. He was right. The 
Huskies were ranked number one 
In the country for three weeks dur- 
ing his freshman year, but the tide 
quickly turned. "We were number 
one for a while, then we hit a slide, 
losing 12 out of the next 13 games. 
That put more pressure on us the 
next year because once we start- 
ed going, we were all looking out 
for the slide." 

Bucyk said the competition In 
collegiate hockey Is getting better 
by the day. "The schools around 
here to compete to get the players 
out of high school. The players 
look first at the big schools, and 
have to decide between Bowling 
Green, Boston University, Boston 
College, Harvard and Northeas- 
tern. It's a different caliber of play 
compared to the Midwest schools 
like Wisconsin and North Dakota. 
They mainly get kids from Cana- 
dlen junior leagues. I couldn't be- 
lieve the first time I played out 
there. It's like a business to them," 
said Bucyk. 

Like every year, Bucyk consid- 
ers the Beanpot tournament to be 
the highlight of the season. In Jan- 
uary, Bucyk said, "It's going to be 
tough this year. The younger guys, 
like when I first got here, don't fully 
understand the concept behind 
the Beanpot. We'll make sure they 
find out. We have a good shot to 

win it this year." 

Bucyk Is aiming for a degree in 
civil engineering. He co-oped this 
year at the Keyes Corporation in 
Waltham where he did drafting 
and structural work. Former NU 
hockey coach, Jim Bell, a vice 
president in the company, 
watched over him. 

He says he will accept a chance 
to play hockey professionally, but 
Is relying more on an engineering 
Job. "I'll try It if the opportunity 
comes along, but right now I'll just 
go with the flow of things and see 
where it brings me," Bucyk said. 

Would he prefer playing for the 
Bruins or his home town Edmonton 
Oilers? "John Just asked me the 
same question and I told him It 
doesn't matter. I'll play for anyone 
who has faith in me and will give 
me a good shot." 

Even the Devils? 

"Yes, even the New Jersey Dev-

Hard act to follow 

The 1982-1983 edition of the Huskies' basketball season was put In a tough 
position this year, considering the tact that they would be Judged against the 
exploits of the two previous NCAA tournament teams. The loss of graduating 
seniors Perry Moss (23.7 ppg), Eric Jefferson (10.4 ppg), and Dave Leltao (8.1 
ppg) left a gap that could not be filled by returning lettermen and recruits. 

The Huskies now sport a 10-9 record overall and a 2-2 record as they head 
down the stretch, but hopes of winning the ECAC North Atlantic Conference 
Championship for a third time are slim. 

The Huskies' schedule was a relatively easy one and for them to be 10-9 at 
this point was a major disappointment. The Huskies lost to such basketball 
powers as Siena, New Hampshire, and were blown out of the Matthews 
Arena, 104-88, by their ECAC rivals Boston University (the team they nipped 
In the finals seconds last year In the first round of the playoffs). 

The bright spot In the Husky lineup this season has been the consistent play 
of Mark Halsel, the 6-6 forward from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was aver- 
aging 18.4 points per game and was among the nation's top rebounders with 
an 11.4 average for the second straight year (last year he placed second 
behind Virginia's 7-4 Ralph Sampson). There's no telling how bad the Huskies' 
record would be without Halsel In the lineup. 

Roland Braswell, a 6-8 Junior from Laurelton, NY, after suffering from the 
sophomore Jinx last season, has come around to be second on the team In 
scoring with a 13.7 mark, but his court presence has Impressed everyone. 

Skeeter Bryant has shed his freshman Jitters and Is now a confident sopho- 
more and has emerged as one of the stars on the team. Bryant was third In 
scoring with a 11.7 average and was third In assists on the team. 

The only freshmen who contributed were Gerry Corcoran and Enndy Bas- 
qualt. Basqualt was a big surprise for Husky coach Him Calhoun, now In his 
eleventh season as head coach. Basqualt, a 6-4 swlngman, from Brooklyn, 
New York, was fourth on the team In scoring with a 9.6 average. Corcoran, a 
6-8 forward from Hlngham, MA was a big help In rebounding and taking up 
space under the glass. 

But If the Huskies are going to keep up the winning tradition, some new 
blood Is a must, and It has to come In the form of a big man. The Hounds were 
lucky to go as far as they did without the dominating center. Another thing to 
remember Is that people like Perry Moss aren't readily available.

When it began snowing heavily 
on the afternoon of February 6, 
1978, schools and businesses 
alike sent everyone home early. 
No big deal, right?— It happens at 
least once a year — it snows heav- 
ily for a few hours, it tapers off, 
then the city sends out the plows. 
Wrong. The snow didn't stop; it 
lasted two days and by the end of 
the storm, Boston was blanketed 
with some 44 inches of snow. 

Houses along the coastline were 
mutilated, people were stranded 
everywhere. In short, the blizzard 
of 1978 devastated the state forc- 
ing Governor Michael Dukakis to 
declare a state of emergency, 
ban driving and vail in the national 
guard to help with the "digout." 

Thousands of coastal residents 
were left homeless as the raging 
tides swept away their homes. 

The whole state was virtually im- 
mobile, and movement of any kind 
was impossible in Boston. For a 
week people were out of work and 
were separated from their families 
without transporation or communi- 
cation because there was no elec- 
tricity in some 100,000 homes. 

Major highways such as route 
128, Storrow and Memorial drives, 
were clogged with trucks and 
cars, unable to move through the 
accumulated snow. 

Like all other schools, Northeas- 
tern canceled classes for a week. 
Dorm life was quite different that 
week. Students unable to go any- 
where, spent most of the time 
playing cards, drinking, getting to 
know each other better. Although 
some students did become Impa- 
tient causing minor disturbances 
such as throwing snowballs at the 
Campus Police and breaking a 
few windows. 

In the aftermath of the storm, 17 
deaths were reported throughout 
New England.

Coal strike 
finally over 

A settlement between the Unit- 
ed Mine Workers Union and indus- 
try management was reached on 
March 25, 1978. It was the longest 
coal strike in American History. 

Under pressure from the govern- 
ment to return to work, the 10,000 
striking union members resolved 
major issues over pensions pro- 
ductivity and health care. Both 
sides reportedly agreed to an in- 
crease in pension for retirees be- 
fore 1976 and $250 dollars a 
month to $275 dollars a month and 
a reduction In health care funds, 
which were formerly provided by 
other companies. 

Management decreased the 
amount of money workers could 
deduct for medical expenses from 
$700 dollars a year to $200 dollars 
a year for employed miners and 
150 for retirees. 

Economists and business execu- 
tives blame the strike for skyrock- 
eting inflation, causing a lag in 
corporate profits and hitting the 
nations's railroads' record losses. 

Test tube 




In July of 1978 the world's first 
test tube baby was born. Louise 
Brown was born to a couple living 
in a small British town. 

Louise was the first child In histo- 
ry to be conceived outside her 
mother's body after her mother's 
egg and her father's sperm were 
Joined in a special test tube. Once 
the egg was fertilized it was surgi- 
cally Implanted in her mother's 
womb where It developed into a 

The procedure was hailed as a 
medical breakthrough, but the 
morality of the birth continues to 
remain under question by some re- 
ligious organizations. 

Effigy burned 
in NU Quad 

On December 13, 1978, a dem- 
onstration staged by both Ameri- 
can and Iranian non-students oc- 
curred In Northeastern's Quad. 
The demonstration was a reflec- 
tion of the turmoil in the Middle 
Eastern Governments. 

Northeastern had more than 400 
Iranian students registered, the 
most in the Boston area at the 

Campus Police arrested five 
Americans for trespassing on pri- 
vate property and disrupting stu- 
dents who were studying for finals. 

The only injury reported during 
the upsurge occurred to an off 
duty University police officer who 
suffered a facial laceration in a 
scuffle with protestors. 

Many of the demonstrators 
were masked as they burned the 
Shah of Iran in effigy. 

911 Cultists commit suicide 

True madness surfaced in No- 
vember of 1978 when 911 mem- 
bers of a religious cult committed 
suicide In Jonestown, Guyana. 

The members were followers of 
the People's Temple, a religious 
cult eminating from the U.S. and 
headed by Rev. Jim Jones, a man 
who claimed he was a reincarna- 
tion of Jesus Christ and Vladimir 

Upon Jones' command, the 
members drank from tubs filled 
with cyanide laced Kool-Ald. 
Those refusing to drink were shot. 

The mass suicide followed an 
ambush shooting attack on Con- 
gressman Leo J. Ryan (D. -Califor- 
nia) and his 17 staff members as 
they were leaving the camp. Ryan 
and four others were killed. Ryan 
and his staff had travelled to the 
obscure camp to investigate 
charges that cult members were 
being mistreated and held against 
their will. 

Later it was revealed that 32 
cult members survived the ordeal 
by fleeing into the jungles.

Peace talks 

1978 marked the year in which 
negotiations between Egypt and 
Israel continued steadily with the 
good of bringing peace between 
the two nations. 

Egyptian President Anwar Sa- 
dat's historic flight to Israel in No- 
vember of 1977 to meet with Israe- 
li Prime Minister Manachem Begin 
brought new hopes for a peace 
agreement. Both nations had been 
fighting for over three decades. 

President Jimmy Carter and his 
administration acted as the medi- 
ating factor in negotiations be- 
tween the two regions. 

Despite effort on both sides, ne- 
gotiations reached a standstill on 
January 18 when Sadat sum- 
moned his delegation, which was 
in Jerusalem, to return to Egypt. 
Sadat accused Israel of "seeking 
land, not peace." 

With continued urging from the 
Carter Administration through let- 
ters and visits to both nations by 
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance 
and Vice President Walter Mon- 
dale, communication and negotia- 
tions persisted. 

In August of 1978, the House an- 
nounced a meeting would occur 
on September 5 between Sadat, 
Begin and Carter at Camp David 
for peace talks.

2 Popes die 
in 2 months 

The first non-Italian pope in 455 
years was elected to the Roman 
Catholic Church in 1978 after the 
tragic deaths of two popes. 

Pope Paul VI died on August 6 at 
80, after 15 years as head of the 
Catholic Church. 

Alkino Luciani was soon in- 
stalled by the cardinals as Pope 
John Paul I. But 34 days later, the 
65 year old pontiff died of a heart 

Shortly after, Polish Cardinal 
Karol Wojtyla, 58, was chosen as 
the new pope. He assumed the 
name John Paul II in honor of Pope 
John Paul I.

Robert Klein 

Professor Robert D. Klein, 44, 
died unexpectedly at his home in 
Arlington, Mass. on October 14, 

Klein, a mathematics Professor, 
was a 21 -year faculty member at 
Northeastern and was president of 
the Faculty Senate, chairman of 
the Senate Agenda Committee 
and member of the University's 
Goals Committee. 

Many students considered him 
one of the best teachers on cam- 
pus and in the Math Department. 

His work and interest in improv- 
ing the University was honored 
when he became the recipient of 
the 1977-78 Service to Students 

Klein was an unsuccessful can- 
didate for state representative in 
1977 and later that year was ap- 
pointed by Governor Michael S. 
Dukakis to the State Cable Televi- 
son Commision. 

King Victory 

In 1978 Massachusetts voters 
made some political changes in 
the Gubernatorial and Senate

US Senator Hubert Humphrey Dies At 66 

Hubert H. Humphrey, 66, died on

Humphrey's first bid for public 
office occurred In 1943 when he 
unsuccessfully ran for Mayor of 
Minneapolis. In 1954 however, he 
won in the Mayoral election. 

As a U.S. Senator, he was very 
Influential in helping to pass the 
Civil Rights Act of 1964. Also, dur- 
ing his 15 years in the senate, he 
introduced legislation on tax re-

Humphrey was also Lyndon 
Johnson's vice-president and was 

an active supporter of the Viet- 
nam War. Later he said, "I'd rather 
be remembered for being wrong 
than being a hypocrite." 

In 1960, he made a bid for the 
Democratic nomination for Presi- 
dent but lost to John F. Kennedy. 
In 1968, he did get the Democratic 
nomination for president but lost 
to Richard M. Nixon in the election. 
Again in 1972 Humphrey made an 
unsuccessful attempt for the party 




When Pres. Jimmy Carter al- 
lowed the deposed Shah of Iran to 
enter the United States for cancer 
treatment, he knew It would cause 
a stir In the political leadership of 
Iran. But, when the U.S. embassy 
was Invaded and hostages were 
taken by militants, It not only 
shocked the nation but the world. 

On November 4, 1979, Iranian 
militants took 90 people working 
In the U.S. embassy hostage, and 
demanded the return of Shah Mo- 
hammed Reza Pahlevi. 

Pres. Jimmy Carter Immediately 
demanded their release and pro- 
ceeded to invoke economic sanc- 
tions against Iran. Immediately 
Carter ordered the deportation of 
all Iranians from the U.S. who were 
violating their student visas, sus- 
pended all Iranian oil imports, and 
froze all Iranian assets In Ameri- 
can banks. 

Later on during the month Iran's 
religious leader, Ayatollah Ruhol- 
Ian Khomeini, agreed to release 
13 American women, non-Ameri- 
cans and black hostages. 

With new president Ban! Sadr 
the U.S. hoped for improved rela- 
tions, but Khomeini ultimately con- 
trolled the power of Iran and 
backed the militants of Iran. 

Although a fact finding mission 
was sent to Iran by the United Na- 
tions to Investigate their griev- 
ances against the Shah and the 
U.S., the situation remained unre- 

On April 24, President Carter at- 
tempted a rescue mission which 
ended in disaster when one of the 
helicopters usued In the attempt 
collided with a transport plane 
causing an explosion killing 8 U.S. 
Servicemen and injuring 5 others. 

Secretary of State Cyrus Vance 
resigned from his post In protest of 
the decision for the rescue at- 

When the Shah died In Egypt on 
July 27, It did not end the hostage 
crisis. In the spring of 1981 howev-

leased. When they came "home" 
they received a hero's welcome 
and were greeted by thousands of 
yellow ribbons tied everywhere, 
from trees to antennas.

An agreement for peace 

With the signing of a treaty in 
Washington D.C. on March 26, 
1979, the two sparring nations of 
Egypt and Israel finally came to 
terms and agreed to work togeth- 
er towards peace. 

After a year of fluctuating nego- 
tiations, marked by Anwar Sadat's 
historic trip to Israel and the 
"frame work for peace" estab- 
lished the previous September at 
the camp David Accords, millions 
watched the awaited event on na-

In December of 1979, the Soviet 
Union invaded Afghanistan with 
thousands of Russian troops. 
Pravda, the communist party 
newspaper, said the USSR had 
sent a limited military contingent 
because of "imperialist Interfer- 
ence in Afghan Affairs." 

Later, Soviet officials said It sent 
the troops to repel "reactionary 
bands" armed, trained and direct- 
ed by the United States. 

President Jimmy Carter In re- 
sponse to the Invasion, asked the 
senate to delay consideration of 
the SALT treaty, cutoff high tech- 
nology sales, and Imposed a grain 

Because of the continued and in- 
creasing soviet presence, (85,000 
by mid-January), The United 
States boycotted the 1980 Sum-

Moscow, and asked other coun- 
tries to follow suit. 


spurs protest 

On March 28, 1979 the nations 
worst nuclear accident occured at 
a Pennsylvania nuclear power 
plant, Three Mile Island, when a 
malfunction caused radioactive 
gas to enter the atmosphere 
threatening the lives of thousands 
of people. 

The chaos began when the 
blockage of water into the reactor 
core was mishandled by techni- 
cians In the control room. Misguid- 
ed by a faulty valve reading, a 
technician released water from 
the super head core at a point 
when the water level was ex- 
tremely low. This caused a dan- 
gerous hydrogen bubble to form In 
the top of the reactor. 

The handling of the situation by 
officials and the Nuclear Regula- 
tory Commission raised questions 
tlons about the safety of nuclear 

The Three Mile Island Incident 
led to a resurgence of protests, in- 
cluding the massive demonstra-

plant site. Protesters there tried to 
occupy the grounds but were 
forced to leave via tear gas, water 
hoses and muscle tactics by the

In the fall of 1979 Pope John 
Paul II, the beloved leader of the 
Roman Catholic Church, chose 
Boston as his first stop on his one 
week tour of the United States. 

Despite heavy rains on the day 
of his visit, over a half million peo- 
ple Jammed the Boston Common 
to listen to the mass after the Pon- 
tiff rode in an open llmoslne 
through Boston neighborhoods. In 
his homily, he encouraged the 
younger generation to be respon- 
sible to society and asked the na- 
tion's citizens to "fill completely 
your noble destiny of services to 
the world."

Fulfilling his campaign promise 
to raise the drinking age, Gover- 
nor Edward J. King signed into law 
a bill raising the state drinking age 
from 18 to 20. 

The new law caused many prob- 
lems for campuses across the 
state since half of the students 
could drink and the other half 
could not. Shorter lines were seen 
at the Cask and student activities 
events where beer was served 
drew relatively small crowds. 

DC 10 crash

On May 25, 1979 an American 
Airlines DC- 10 airliner carrying 
275 passengers, crashed durnlng 
take-off at Chicago's O'Hare Inter- 
national Airport. 

Inquiries Into the disaster re- 
vealed that Improper mainten- 
ance of engine mounts, which 
caused one of the engines to tear 
away from the wing of the plane, 
was to blame. 

Four days later, the Federal Avi- 
ation Administration grounded all 
DC-10's until a thorough Inspec- 
tion could be completed. 

The annual Spring Fest turned 
into a 'drink- fest' when students

The United States government 
temporarily suspended aid to the 
government of El Salvador after 
four U.S. women, Including three

A U.S. embassy later reported 
that the deaths were caused by 
extreme rightist groups. 

El Salvadoran military forces In- 
creased Its violent aggressions to- 
wards leftist guerrillas while the 
Carter Administration "cautious- 
ly" resumed military and econom- 
ic aid to the government. 

The Incoming Reagan Adminis-

but would retain the current policy 
of sending advisory and military 
aid to El Salvador. 



Her Cool 

The steam and ash filled belch- 
es and rumblings of Mt. Saint He- 
lens had been warning scientists 
and geologists for months that she 
was suffering from a severe case 
of "gaseous Indigestion!" 

But on May 18, 1980 the Wash- 
ington mountain's Internal com- 
bustion exploded, releasing the 
compressed gases of Its cavity 
60,000 feet high Into the air. The 
blast, which was 500 times great- 
er than the atomic bomb dropped 
on Hiroshima, leveled 150 square 
miles of forest, destroyed thou- 
sands of miles of roads and 
bridges, and killed 50 people. 

The cloud of ash created after 
the explosion covered much of 
Washington, Oregon, and Mon- 
tana and was up to seven feet 
thick In some areas. 

The cost of re-forestatlon and es- 
timated loss of wildlife and fish 
was at least 300 million dollars. 

Trouble Brews In Poland 

In 1980, Internal conflicts were 
brewing In Poland between the So- 
viet controlled government and 
the labor union, Solidarity. Union 
leader, Lech Walesa, threatened 
and carried out strikes against the 

Polish government. 

The U.S. government contem- 
plated Its role in the matter after 
fears were voiced that the Soviet 
Union would crack down on the 
Solidarity movement. 

And The 
Winner Is: 

The 1980 Presidential elections 
provided American voters with an 
arena full of politicians to choose 

In the Democratic Primary race 
were Incumbent president Jimmy 
Carter, former California Gover- 
nor Jerry Brown and Massachu- 
setts Senator Edward M. Kennedy. 
Senators Robert Dole and Howard 
Baker, along with John Conally, 
Ronald Reagan, Rep. John Ander- 
son and George Bush all threw 
their "hats In the ring" for the Re- 
publican Party's endorsement. 

But the race narrowed down be- 
tween the teams of Carter and 
Mondale versus Reagan and Bush. 
Ronald Wilson Reagan was 
elected as the 40th president of 
the United States. He was sworn 
Into office on January 20, 1981. 


In November of 1980, a series of 
earthquakes destroyed 29 cities 
and towns near Naples, In south-

As rescue workers dug through 
plies of rubble and levelled build-

An estimated 300,000 people 
were left homeless. 

Gold Rises 

In January 1980 a worldwide 
"gold rush" occurred as gold 
prices soared on the International 
markets. The frenzy of activity cul- 
minated on January 18 when an 
ounce of gold was worth $835 on 
the London Market. 

Gold prices began a meteoric 
rise on January 2, after having 
closed at $524 an ounce two days 
earlier In London. On that day, the

from the officials In making Invest-

Ron Shot 

The specter of violence remind- 
ed us frequently In 1981 that all 
public figures are susceptible to 
sudden assassination attempts. 

On March 30, Ronald Reagan 
was shot as he waved to a small 
crowd after leaving the Washing- 
ton Hilton. Reagan did not Immedi- 
ately realize he had been shot. He 
was rushed to George Washington 
University Hospital where he re- 
covered well after surgery. Also In- 
jured were Timothy J. McCarthy, a 
secret service officer, Thomas De- 
lahunty of the Washington police 
force and Reagan's press secre- 
tary, James Brady. Brady, who 
was seriously wounded, faced a 
long road to recovery. 

John Hinkley was seized by ser- 
curity officers at the scene. Hink- 
ley was described as a troubled 
drifter, Infatuated with actress 
Jody Foster. 

The world was shocked once 
more In early spring when Pope 
John Paul II was shot as he rode 
through St. Peter's Square. 

On May 13, the pontiff was 
wounded as he rode In an open 
car among 10,000 worshippers. 
He was sped to a nearby hospital 
while Vatican security officers act- 
ed quickly to seized his assailant. 

Mehmet All Ascam, an escaped 
Turkish murderer, was arrested at 
the scene. Questions surrounding 
possible conspirators continue to 
shroud the assassination attempt 
In mystery.

America was free at lastl On 
January 20, 52 American hos- 
tages were released after 444 
days of captivity In Iran. Their Jan- 
uary homecoming was, to family 
and friends, the culmination of a 
bitter slice of American history. 

The hostages were freed follow- 
ing two-and-a-half months of ne- 
gotiations through Algerian Inter- 
mediaries. A main component In 
the accord was the return of $8 
billion In assets frozen In the U.S. 
after the embassy take-over. 

Since the slezure of the U.S. Em- 
bassy In Tehran, Americans had 
Joined with the hostages families 
In open expression of anger and

Solidarity Suspended 

Winter brought a chilly turn of 
•vents In Poland, a nation torn by 
the battle between Its communist 
system and the burgeoning labor 
union movement. 

On December 13, the govern- 
ment of General Jaruzelskl de- 
clared martial law, moving swiftly 
In the face of mounting civil strife. 
Communications with the outside 
world were completely severed. 

Solidarity, the Independent 
trade union, was suspended fol- 
lowing the arrests of union activ- 
ists throughout the country. 

Among the 15,000 arrested was 
Solidarity leader, Lech Walesa. 

The new leadership, forged of 
high ranking military officers con- 
solidated their power, citing the 
"Impending catastrophe" as the 
reason for martial law. 

There were scattered reports of 
clashes between the military and 
demonstrators. Several were 
killed In the time shortly after mar- 
tial law was declared. 

It would be a long, cold winter 
for the Polish people.

Violence ended the life of one of 
the decade's greatest peacemak- 
ers, Anwar Sadat on October 6. 

During a military parade com- 
memorating the 1973 Egyptian at- 
tack on the Suez Canal, Sadat was 
attacked as he watched an aerial 
display from a reviewing stand. 

A small band of commandos, 
thought to be Muslim Fundamen- 
talists, attacked the stand with 
grenades and machine guns. 

Sadat died two hours later at a 
military hospital south of Cairo. 
Eight others were killed In the at- 
tack, Including government offi- 
cials and foreign dignitaries. 

Sadat was recognized for his 
unique and constant efforts to cre- 

ate a lasting peace with neighbor- 
ing Israel. His death prompted sin- 
cere sorrow from Western leaders 
who eulogized the statesman as 
"one of the great personalities of 
the 20th century." However, pub- 
lic Jubilation was noted In several 
Arab nations, Libya, Lebanon, Syr- 
la, and Iraq, where Sadat was 
viewed as a traitor to the Arab 

Yet, Anwar Sadat remains a ma- 
jor figure of history who overcame 
his own prejudices and culture for 
a greater goal— -a lasting peace. 



Sands Dies 
For IRA 

In a dramatic attempt to press 
Great Britain to recognize Irish Re- 
publican Army Prisoners as politi- 
cal prisoners, Bobby Sands began 
a hunger strike on March 1. Sands, 
a convicted member of the IRA, 
was serving a 14 year sentence at 
Maze Prison, Belfast. 

During the sixth week of his 
strike, Sands was elected to the 
British Parliament but his victory 
was short-lived. On May 5, the 
66th day of his hunger strike, 
Sands died. 

By year's end, six fellow IRA 
prisoners on hunger strikes had 
died. Despite their efforts, Prime 
Minister Margaret Thatcher re- 
mained Inflexible: Great Britain 
would not change Its policy.

as the Celtics went on the their 
14th NBA championships. The 
Celtics were down three games to 
one against the Philadelphia 76ers 
and In an unbelievable come- 
back In semi-final play the Celtics 
rallied. During the seventh game, 
the Celtics beat the 76ers at the 
garden 91-90. 

With Philadelphia gone, the 
Houston Rockets proved no match 
and Boston won In 6 games. The 

most memorable Incident In the 
series was the passing of words 
between Moses Malone and Larry 
Bird. (By the way Moses, forks are 
on the left.) With the champion- 
ship In their hands, the Celtics 
were greeted at Logan by a mob 
of die-hard Celtic fans and from 
there were honored with a recep- 
tion at city hall. Once again the 
bad boys from Boston continued 
the Celtic legacy as the dominat- 
ing team In the NBA. YES

Haitians flee 

Two thousand Haitians fled their 
homeland In overcrowded, dan- 
gerous boats, In the face of gov- 
ernment oppression and contin- 
ued economic Ills. They headed 
for America, carrying not much 
more than dreams for opportunity 
In the "promised land." 

However, upon arrival, the refu- 
gees were separated by gender 
and housed In detention centers 
and jails. Children were placed 
with relatives or In Institutions In 
New York State. 

The Haitians, caught In a shift of 
American Immigration policy, 
were forced to wait while the Rea- 
gan Administration weighed their 
options. Government officials de- 
bated granting them political asy- 
lum or deporting them to another 
country. The administration fraud 
allowing the Haitians to remain 
would spark an even greater In- 
flux of refugees. 

The Haitians' desperation cli- 
maxed In December, when a 
group of refugees began a hunger 
strike at the Krome Avenue deten- 
tion center In Miami, Florida. Hai- 
tian support groups across the 
country demonstrated In solidar- 

The Haitians' arrival In America 
followed similar wave of 125,000 
Cubans In 1979. All but 1,300 of 
these refugees had already been 

Carl S. Ell, was NU 

Carl Stephens Ell, who died on 
April 17 at the age of 93, will long 
be remembered for his 70 years of 
service to Northeastern University. 

His continued efforts to build the 
University created the Northeas- 
tern of today— the largest private 
university In the United States. 

Ell, who began his tenure with 
the University as a surveying In- 
structor, was named Dean of the 
College of Engineering and then 
Vice President of the University. 

He was named President In 1940. 

Until his retirement In 1959, Ell 
persevered to strengthen the co- 
op program, believing a student 
should develop his future while 
aware of his place In society. 

During Ell's tenure, the Alumni 
Auditorium, Cabot Gym, Hayden 
Hall and Dodge Library were con- 
structed. The student center was 
constructed and named for Ell fol- 
lowing his retirement. 

A Sunday 
of winning 

With entries from all over New 
England, "Celebrity Sunday" 
raised $50,000 for the Massachu- 
setts Special Olympics. The day's 
activities Included welghtllfting, 
gymnastics, basketball, track and 
field, and a 10,000 meter race be- 
ginning and ending at Hayden lot. 
Touching moments were wit- 
nessed ail day. First prize was giv- 
en by former Patriot wide reclever 
Darryl Stlngly who was tragically 
paralyzed by a neck injury, to 
Neal Jorgenson who finished first 
In the wheelchair division. 

The most touching moment of all 
was when the last official racer 
crossed the finish line. Sebastian 
DiFranelsco, a wheelchair racer, 
finished while the awards ceremo- 
ny was In progress and received a 
standing ovation from spectators 
and participants alike. Parti Lyons 
Catalano presented him with a T- 
shlrt which summed up the whole 
afternoon. The shirt read "It takes 
a little more to be a champion." 
Tremendous thanks went to the 
day's sponsors, former Celtic Tom 
"Satch" Sanders; Dean of Parents' 
Services Virginia Stephanos and 
various university volunteers. For 
some the day was either to win or 
lose, for others It was a chance to 
cheer on those who don't know 
the meaning of the word "give 
up," and still for others It was a 
time to reflect and grow inwardly 
and observe that although the 
body may be weakend the mind 
will always stand tall. 


DC- 10 crash 
at Logan 

On January 23, 1982 a World 
Airlines plane skidded off an ley 
runway upon takeoff at Boston's 
Logan Airport. The front section of 
the plane snapped off upon Im- 
pact causing the "nose" of the 
plane to fall Into the freezing wa- 

Initially It was reported that 
there were no fatalities but three 
days later World Airways an- 
nounced that a Dedham father 
and son, Walter and Leo Metcalf, 
were missing. The family of the vic- 
tims pleaded with Massport offi- 
cials and World Airways to look for 
the pair, but Inaccuracies In the 
passenger list caused a delay In 
the search. 

A week earlier 65 people were 
killed when an Air Florida flight, 
taking off from Washington Nation- 
al Airport, crashed Into the 14th 
street bridge during rush hour, and 
plunged Into the Potomac River. 


NFL players vs. owners 

For the first time In the 63 year 
history of the National Football 
League, players began a strike 
against all of the League's 28 
teams on September 21. All but a 
handful of the League's 1,500 
players Joined the strike. 

The strike formed when the NFL 
management council, the bargain- 
ing unit of the club owners, and 
the players' association, the 

NFLPA failed to negotiate a new 
basic labor agreement. The last 
contract, a five-year pace, had 
expired on July 15. 

The players demanded 55 per- 
cent of the owners' gross rev- 
enues. The demand had been 
made In anticipation of the 
league's new contract with the 
commercial television networks. 


Budget Director David A. Stock- 
man took President Reagan's 
"New Federalism" plan before the 
Senate Governmental Affairs 

Both the plan and Stockman met 
a generally chilly reception, par- 
ticularly from Democrats. It was 
Stockman's first formal appear- 
ance before Congress since the 
flap over his Indeseretlons In an 
Atlantic Monthly Interview. The 
plan, first advanced by Reagan In 
his State of the Union message, 
called for the phased shifting to 
the states many federal aid pro- 
grams while the federal govern- 
ment assumed the full cost of the 
Medicaid system of medical pay- 
ments for the poor. 

Under Intense questioning from 
committee Democrats, Stockman 
said the promise of "no winners or 
losers" applied only to the first 
phase of the program, ending In 

Senator John Glenn (D-Ohlo) 
sniped at Stockman's confessions 
to the magazine. "We found out 
that we were all willfully misled," 
Glenn said. Stockman said his re- 
marks had been mis-understood 
by the Interviewer. "The notion 
that any one was mis-led or de- 
ceived or that anything was 
rigged Is utterly without founda- 

Dan Ross pays a visit 

Northeastern finally made it to 
the Super Bowl In 1982. 

No, not the Huskies, but, rather, 
a Husky alumnus named Dan Ross, 
a tight end for the Cincinnati Ben- 
gals who set a Super Bowl record 
of 11 receptions, two of which 
were touchdowns. 

In recognition of his numerous 
achievements, the University 
sponsored a "Dan Ross Day" on 
campus February 23, 1982. During 
halfHme of the men's Basketball 

game against Long Island Univer- 
sity, they showered him with gifts, 
retired his Husky number, 84, and 
presented him with a portrait of 
himself painted by AAMARP artist 
Arnold Hurley. 

Visibly overwhelmed by the out- 
pouring of friends and family, Ross 
accepted all congratulations and 
beamed, "This Is the greatest thrill 
of my life. I'm extremely proud to 
be associated with Northeastern."

Janet Cooke 
tells a lie 

American Journalism suffered a 
confidence-shaking blow when 
Janet Cooke a Washington Post 
reporter, admitted that she had 
fabricated a story. 

"Jimmy's World," an article de- 
scribing an 8 year-old heroin ad- 
dict, earned Cooke a Pulitzer Prize 
and the interest of the Washington 
D.C. police. 

When police officials tried to lo- 
cate the boy, they requested that 
the Post divulge his whereabouts. 
Cooke then confessed and re- 
turned the Pulitzer Prize. 

The American press, long the 
vanguard for truth and justice, 
was forced to re-examine its meth- 
ods and Its tarnished Image. 

NU icemen 
take ECAC 

Although the Husky hockey 
team In 1982 consisted of the 
same players who fell apart In the 
middle of the 1981 season, they 
made believers out of everyone 
as they skated their way to a first 
ECAC championship and a berth 
In the national tournament. 

The Huskies finished the year 
third in the nation with a record of 
25-9-2. In the opening round of the 
NCAA championships In Provi- 
dence, Rhode Island, the Huskies 
lost 6-2 to eventual national cham- 
pions, North Dakota, despite goals 
by Gerry Cowle and Glen Glovan- 
uccl. They came back to thrash 
New Hampshire in the consolation 
game with senior Scot McKenney 
scoring four points on a hat trick

Long time Soviet leader Leonid I. 
Brezhnev, 75, died on Nov. 10 of a

A wave of fear swept the nation 
In September of 1982 after seven 
deaths In suburban Chicago were 
linked to poisoned Tylenol pain re- 
lief capsules. 

Authorities said the capsules 
had been purchased at area 
stores, were emptied and tainted 
with cyanide, then brought back 
to the store shelves. 

A nationwide scan on all Tylenol 
pain relievers was enacted and 
the public demanded legislation 
for safer packaging of over the 
counter drugs.

He told senators that the plan, 
which would open nearly one bil-

drawn up after 19 months of con-

Appearing before the Energy

accompanied by numerous acts 
of violence against truckers who 
were still on the road. 

The levies that the truckers were 

protesting had been part of a high- 
way revenue package passed by 
congress in December 1982. Be-

the stop. 


to France 

Klaus "The Butcher of Lyon" Bar- 
bie was deported from Bolivia and 
turned over to French authorities 
to face charges of "crimes against 
humanity" during World War II. 

Barbie had lived In Bolivia under 
the name of Altmann since 1951 
and enjoyed the protection of 
successive right-wing military gov- 
ernments. Barbie was responsible 
for ordering the deaths of 4,000 
French Jews and resistance fight- 
ers and 7,500 deportations to Nazi 
concentration camps between 
1942 and 1944, when he was the 
chief of the German Gestapo In Ly- 
ons, France. 

Trade unions banned 

On Oct. 8, 1982 the Polish Parlia- 
ment approved a law banning all 
existing trade unions including the 
already suspended Solidarity 
trade Union. 

The law provided for the estab- 
lishment of new unions to be far 
more restricted In scope than ex- 
isting ones. The move prompted 

thousands of workers of the Lenin 
Ship yard In Gdansk to stage a 
strike to protest the ban. 

On Jan. 3, 1983, Poland set up 
new officially sanctioned labor un- 
ions to replace the Solidarity fed- 
eration and other Independant un- 
ions that had operated under mar- 
tial law. 

Paul "Bear" Bryant, famed 
coach of the University of Ala- 
bama 'Crimson tide', died of a

at the age of 69. He was the win- 
ningest coach ever In the history 
of college football.

Job search begins here 

For most collete graduates In the 80s graduation can be some- 
what of a mixed blessing. It's great to finally get out of school after 
years of hard work. But In these days of double-digit unemployment 
rates the "real world" can look pretty scary. There are no co-op 
advisors to help you out. Instead of competing with ten people for 
one Job you may find yourself competing against hundreds. The 
graduate Is essentially left alone to fight the hard battle to find and 
keep a Job. Armed only with a "sheepskin" whose value declines 
every year, the battle can seem hopeless. 

Northestern graduates face the same Job search problems as any 
other college grad. But there Is a place to advise and aid the grad- 
to-be here at NU. The Department of Career Development and 
Placement, better known as Grad Placement, was established to 
assist seniors and alumni with decisions concerning their future. 

The department, located at 133 and 132 Nightingale Hall, pro- 
vides seminars In resume writing and Interview skills. And, counsel- 
ors are available for Individualized assistance. Career Days are 
arranged In the Fall and Winter quarters where students can meet 
with representatives from up to 50 companies on a professional, yet 
Informal basis. 

Following this preparation the department offers on-campus re- 
cruiting where the student can Interview for professional Jobs locat- 
ed nationwide while remaining on campus. This Is of great benefit to 

the student with a limited travel budget who would otherwise never 
get the chance to meet with many out-of-state company represen- 

Counselors at Grad Placement are the first to admit that despite 
all the help that they offer students, not everyone that walks 
through their doors will walk out with a Job. Most recruiters that visit 
Northeastern also visit other schools In the New England area. And 
most Job offers go to those students with Business and/or Technical 
degrees and experience. This often leaves Liberal Arts majors out In 
the cold. Many students don't like this but the department's main 
purpose Is not to get everyone a Job. It functions more as a helper to 
"polish up your act" so to speak. They teach you skills that could 
give a Northeastern grad an edge on the competition. 

Students that use the office describe the recruiting pace as hec- 
tic. Hundreds of company representatives may come to campus 
within the short span of two months. And the major complaint Is that 
you don't always get the Interviews you want because of a comput- 
erized system of scheduling. If you do get an Interview It may con- 
flict with a class schedule which could cause problems. But overall, 
the rating of Grad Placement Is a favorable one. There aren't many 
places today that are as concerned about a new graduate's future 
as they are. 


Maria Lynn Kessler, 

Awarded for outstanding co- 
op in UK 

Last summer, co-op took Maria 
Lynn Kessler to England • • Med- 
way Towns to be exact — a de- 
pressed Industrial town about one 
hour south of London on the river 

Maria, originally from Allen- 
town, Pa., spent six months as a 
group counselor and program 
coordinator In an Intermediate 
Treatment Center (I.T.) for com- 
munity children and teenagers 
that were In trouble with the law. 
Most of the kids, between the 
ages of eight and 17, had ap- 
peared before the court and were 
at risk of being taken Into foster 

As a counselor, Maria said she 
worked with groups of various 
ages; with the older teens In 
heavy discussion-oriented pro- 
grams and with the younger kids 
In activity-oriented programs with 
light discussion. 

According to Maria, much of 
the group discussion Involved life 
situations, sex, and glue sniffing 
— considered a more serious 
problem In England than marijua- 

During the course of the sum- 
mer, Maria and the I.T. staff spent 
several residential* In Wales, 
where they went caving, hiking, 

canoeing, and absellllng. 

One of the more rewarding ex- 
perience for Maria was establish- 
ing a special girls' group. "I saw a 
need there" said Maria, "the girls 
were In groups dominated by 
boys, so I built a program based 
on their needs. I saw the program 
through form start to finish." 

Maria said the significant differ- 
ence between girls' and boys' 
groups Is the manner In which the 
leader Is determined: a boy es- 
tablishes himself as leader by 
fighting; a girl establishes herself 
with charisma. 

During the time she spent work- 
ing with the kids, Maria said she 
learned a lot about the English 
culture. According to her, Its very 
class-oriented, especially among 
the young boys who divide them- 
selves Into gangs, such as "Skin- 
heads," "Mods," "Punks," and 

The boys Maria counseled fell 
Into the Skinhead category, she 

Skinheads are "your basic 
thug," said Maria. "They're ma- 
cho, Into glue sniffing and wear 
their hair shaved close to their 
heads." Their uniforms are Jeans 
or chinos, commando boots and 
according to Maria they're Into 

beating up Mods or Punks. 

"Mods are leftovers of the 60'$. 
They're Into rock music such as 
The Beatles and The Who," she 
continued. "They dress nicely, 
wear V-neck pullovers, have tons 
of records . . . the guys wear eye- 
liner and their hair Is Just so . . . 
and they drive scooters or mo- 

"Punks are antl-everything. 
They listen to punk music, wear 
leather and chains, and have out- 
rageous hair." said Maria. 

"Teddies are Just pretty boys," 
she continued. 

During her off hours Maria said 
there was little to do. "There was 
no nightlife and the pubs closed 
around 11:00." Her schedule fell 
Into a routine: Monday - "Telly;" 
Tuesday and Wednesday • go to 
the pub after group session; 
Thursday - laundry; and week- 
ends • day-trips and sightseeing. 

Maria's hard work and dedica- 
tion to the kids In her program 
brought much personal satisfac- 
tion. The accomplishments 
gained by Maria did not go unno- 
ticed at home as she was award- 
ed an outstanding co-op award 
upon her return. 

Armando Barbosa, EE 

Co-ops help secure long-terms 

Armando Barbosa, an electrical 
engineer, took the opportunities 
presented to him while on co-op 
and used them to promote his 
professional development. Ar- 
mando knows where he's going 
and has set a long-term goal for 
his professionalism — an engi- 
neering firm to Include his two 
younger brothers. 

With a predetermined Interest 
In computer hardware, Armando 
entered C & K Components of 
Newton as a research and devel- 
opment technician for his co-op. 
His responsibilities Included per- 
forming routine calibrations and 
repair procedures on In-plant 
equipment. The equipment dealt 
primarily with automated machin- 
ery which was driven by a small 
computer. The research and dev- 
lopment aspect of the Job en- 
abled Armando to work Indepen- 
dently on the design and con- 
struction of the prototype quality 
testing equipment from schemat- 
ic drawings. The level of Interest 
In his work was reflected through 
Its high quality. 

The overall exposure to a lab 
environment at C ft K established 
a firm base on which Armando 

could begin to build. 

He continued his development 
In the technical lab area at Butler 
Automatic located In Canton. It 
was here that he could utilize the 
experience gained at his pre- 
vious Job In "trouble shooting" 
various types of Integrated circuit 
boards for direct component re- 
placement. Through this trouble 
shooting Armando became famil- 
iar with reoccuring defects in Inte- 
grated circuit boards. His enthusi- 
asm towards challenging projects 
lead to Inspecting electrical cur- 
cult drawings for drafting errors. 
In catching and correcting these 
errors before the final drawing for 
production was made, the reoc- 
curing defects coming into the lab 
were minimized. The skill levels 
Armando achieved In the lab 
were put to the test In the field for 
Butler's clients. He was selected 
to make frequent trips to Spring- 
field for replacement of electrical 
equipment, data-taking and ba- 
sic calibration. A major asset for 
any young professional Is suc- 
cessful customer relations. 

The culmination of Armando's 
co-op experiences came at Pow- 
er Processing, Inc. of Canton, with 

the Introduction of computer 
graphics. He was Involved in the 
development of a graphic system 
from Its component parts up. In 
this state of research and devel- 
opment, he continued to learn 
more about the conception of an 
Idea, and taking that Idea 
through refinement, product de- 
velopment and final production. 
In power processing, Armando 
was also Involved with the circuit 
development of Sears' new 
Craftsman power stapler. He built 
a firm understanding of technical 
aspects for development of a sys- 
tem using microprocessors as Its 
base. His responsibilities Included 
overseeing the design of a circuit 
for the output of the graphic sys- 
tem. The final design to come out 
of his group was of such calibur, 
and allowed for such simple Inte- 
gration Into the overall system, 
that It reduced cost per unit by 
$80.00. The many hard hours of 
work and study continued to pay 
off In achievements such as this 
during his final co-op. 

Armando would like to thank his 
mother, Ellsa, for being the driving 
force behind all his efforts. 

Bill Grande, Marketing 

The guy who always wore the suit" 

Marketing major Bill Grande edited this 
entire co-op section with the exception of 
one article — this one, because It's about 
him. You see, after we Interviewed him for 
the section, he turned around and offered 
to do some work for us. He seemed so ea- 
ger and capable that we gave him two 
editorial positions: co-op editor and faculty 
editor. Besides, we knew he needed some- 
thing to do when he wasn't meeting with 
his business policy group, compiling teach- 
er course evaluations for the Business Col- 
lege or acting as Division A chairman of the 
Business Students' Advisory Committee. 

As It turned out, Bill, a native of Saratoga 
Springs, N.Y., was a wonderful addition to 
the staff. He's well-organized, a pleasure to 
work with and can match wits with the cra- 
ziest members of The Cauldron. 

This energy and ability to work well with 
others appears to be a trait of Bill's profes- 
sional side as well. During co-op he worked 
for two major corporations: CIBRO Petrole- 
um Products, Inc. In Port of Albany, N.Y. 
and W.R. Grace & Co. In Cambridge. He 
obtained both positions and subsequent 
promotions on his own. 

Bill worked for three terms at CIBRO, an 
Independent oil refiner and distributor. He 
started as assistant to the plant manager, 
worked as a truck dispatcher and ultimate- 
ly served as assistant to the regional man- 
ager. His many responsibilities Included: 
scheduling of truck and rail deliveries; 
scheduling needs and priorities between 
refinery operations, transportation and 
marketing; and customer service. He also 
worked on market survey material regard- 

ing CIBRO entrance Into new product lines. 

During his final two coop terms, Bill 
worked for "Darex," a unit of The Construc- 
tion Products Division of W.R. Grace ft Co. 
He worked first as a market analyst where 
he developed sales and distribution pro- 
grams on an Apple III computer. The knowl- 
edge and experience gained here permit- 
ted Bill to take on additional responsibility 
as assistant to the business manager: shar- 
ing day to day business activities such as 
product distribution, verifying freight ex- 
penses and general troubleshooting. 

The highlight of his work at Grace, 53rd In 
the Fortune 500 companies, was working 
on the budget for the 1983 fiscal year. 

Bill has already been offered a position 
with Darex, however he Is keeping his op- 
tlons open by Interviewing with many other 
companies through the grad placement of- 
fice. He Is also considering graduate 
school at Harvard Business. 

To many of his fellow B.A. students, Bill 
may be remembered as "the guy who al- 
ways wore the suit," even on days when he 
wasn't meeting with a member of the facul- 
ty or Interviewing for a position. If you ask 
Bill why he breaks the Jeans-whlle-not-on- 
co-op dress code, he'll reply: "It's part of 
my train of thought ... my business philos- 
ophy. When you dress up you feel better 
and your train of thought Is geared more 
towards business." 

Professional and businesslike are In- 
deed words that describe Bill Grande, but 
our staff would be quick to add amiable, 
hard-working and fun— and for that we say 

Joy Vallee, EE 

Engineering no longer for men only 

Joy Vallee's story Is unique In many 
ways. Although she doesn't consider her- 
self to be a radical women's libber, she 
does believe that some women are equally 
or better qualified than men for stereotypic 
cally male roles. Joy Is living proof of her 
belief, being one of a relatively small num- 
ber of women electrical engineers, and ac- 
cording to computer listings she Is the only 
woman In her class with the power systems 
option. Her list of activities and accom- 
plishments Is almost endless. 

When In high school, Joy learned through 
an advertisement of a program sponsored 
by Central Hudson Gas and Electrical 
Corp. In Poughkeepsle, N.Y. Promising stu- 
dents Interested In electrical engineering 
were the target. Joy filled out the neces- 
sary applications, appeared before a pan- 
el of Judges, and was the first woman ever 
to receive the scholarship award. Central 
Hudson paid Joy's first year of college and 
provided her with a Job every co-op period 
In different departments of the corpora- 
tion. In return, she signed an agreement to 
return to Central Hudson for all her co-op 
periods. During the summer before she 
came to Northeastern, Joy began her co- 
operative employment at Central Hudson. 
"When I first got there, the word seemed to 
spread quickly that 'the new co-op Is a 
girl'," she said. 

"I felt uneasy being In higher positions 
than some of the men because I'm younger 
than them and because I'm a woman," Joy 
said, but also added that probably this 
was more on her part than on the part of 
the people she supervised. 

When asked about memorable exper- 
iences, she related a story from her days In 

Customer Services, when she went out with 
cable splicers to evaluate the underground 
network services. "I was climbing out of a 
manhole with the boots, hard hat, safety 
glasses, the whole bit, and met this little 
old lady." The woman was absolutely 
shocked to see that "Oh my God, women 
do this kind of work now? Oh, I can't be- 
lieve itl Why, back when /was your age . . . 
Oh, I have to tell my husband, he'll never 
believe Itl" A short while later Joy climbed 
out of another manhole to come face to 
face with a little old man. "He said 'Oh, my 
wife told me there was a woman doing this 
but I Just couldn't believe Itl" Her favorite 
co-op period was spent at the Roseton 
Generating Station, far removed from the 
office setting. "When something goes 
wrong there It's not like being in the office", 
she said. It was a very exciting atmo- 
sphere to work In, and in this particular 
instance she was again the only woman. 

As with any Job, as Joy gained exper- 
ience she was given more responsibility. At 
her co-op Job In the Electric System Protec- 
tion Section, she contacted manufacturers 
and interviewed them, then drew up the 
final specifications for the given Job, all 
with a minimal amount of supervision. As 
she proved herself, she was treated more 
professionally and In turn felt she became 
more professional. 

Being in the top five percent of her class 
and her experience with Central Hudson 
has opened many doors in the area of fu- 
ture employment. Central Hudson offered 
her a position that she Is considering. She 
also has received numerous other offers In 
a variety of areas, such as in research, 
consulting and utilities. 

Judy Nunes, Med. Tech. 

Stint in Sweden challenging & fun 

When Judy Nunes first learned of the op- 
portunity for medical technology students 
to go to Sweden, she sort of shrugged It off. 
Then, Judy worked a work study Job for 
Professor Brltta Karlsson, who Is In charge 
of the program, and she asked her If she 
was Interested. Judy's first reaction was: 
"not me" Then, as she learned more, she 
asked: "Why not me?" So, from June 
through December of 1982, she lived and 
worked In Helslngburg, on the southwest 
coast of Sweden. 

"I was terrified at first," said Judy, ex- 
plaining that she felt uncomfortable with a 
strange language. Even though she had 
taken a couple of courses In Swedish, It 
had taken a little while for her to adapt. Her 
fears also were supplemented by all she 
had heard about Swedes being "cold." But 
Instead, she found them to be friendly and 

Language barriers presented a greater 
difficulty when dealing with patients. One 
afternoon, not long after she had started, 
she was drawing blood from a woman who 
started screaming something In Swedish 
she did not understand. Judy hurried to re- 
move the tourniquet and needle, but the 
woman continued to say, "svlmma." Fortu- 
nately for them both, a medical student 
heard the woman and rescued Judy Just as 
the woman started to faint. Now, Judy Is 
sure she will never forget that "svlmma" 
means to faint. 

Day to day living was full of small chal- 
lenges. For example • buying food. "The 
packaging Is different over there," Judy 
said, "Everything looked like toothpaste to 
me." She had to take her dictionary with 

her to read all of the labels. The diet also 
took some getting used to. "They eat lots of 
cheese, and the Swedish government rec- 
ommends eight slices of bread per day." 
Fresh vegetables were hard to find and ex- 
pensive. Soda Is not popular there either. 
"No Tab — I was bummed," said Judy. 

Sweden has socialized medicine, which 
has Its advantages and disadvantages, 
according to Judy. It allows the hospitals to 
become very specialized and gives each 
hospital, doctor, and clinic a certain dis- 
trict or geographical area to cover. Also, 
medicine may not be obtained without a 
prescription, Including aspirin. 

In the lab, Judy said "the doctors In 
charge of the lab worked right along with 
you. There were no condescending atti- 
tudes. At MGH (Massachusetts General 
Hospital) when a doctor walks In, everyone 
stands up and salutes." 

One of the first questions Judy was 
asked when she arrived In Sweden was, 
"Who shot J.R.?" "They were really dis- 
gusted with me when I told them I didn't 
even know who J.R. was." 

Judy said she had more problems adjust- 
Ing when she returned to America. She said 
there's a competitive, materialistic atti- 
tude In this country that Is more noticeable 
after being away from It for awhile. She 
also found It strange to "hear so much Eng- 
lish after six months." During the first 
month she was back In Boston, she said 
she wanted to go back to Sweden. "I drove 
people nuts. I'd say, 'Well In Sweden we . ." 
But, she says she's gotten over that, "I 
guess you have to come back to reality 

Kenny Miller, Poli. Sci. 

Globe Co-op: Intro to Journalism 

Kenny Miller, a political science major, 
spent his co-op terms rubbing elbows with 
the top administrators and the editorial 
staff of the largest dally newspaper In New 
England. Not too shabby for a "first Job." 

Kenny, who had never worked before co- 
op, served as administrative assistant to 
Thomas Wlnshlp, editor of The Boston 
Globe. Kenny worked a total of nine 
months for Wlnshlp during two consecutive 

"I was kind of like a second pair of eyes 
and ears and hands ... I acted In that 
capacity on various research projects," 
said Kenny. His responsibilities Included 
clipping articles and editorials from other 
newspapers and keeping abreast of for- 
eign and national news and political races. 

"And then there was the glamour aspect 
to the Job— driving him around, which was 
fun because we got to know each other," 
said Kenny and added, "We dealt with 
each other on a more personal friend ba- 
sis, versus a boss/employee basis, which 
worked very well for both of us." 

Kenny described Wlnshlp as "very much 
either one extreme or the other: that Is he's 
very relaxed or he's going full steam." 

Kenny accompanied Wlnshlp on several 
speaking engagements, which he de- 
scribed as educational but unusual exper- 
iences. He said people regarded him as 
someone who might have vital Information 
to Impart about Wlnshlp, so he was bom- 
barded with questions, which he enjoyed. 

He also was put In a similar position at 
The Olobe, and said that other employees' 
reactions towards him varied. 

"Their immediate reaction was with a no- 
tlon of curiosity — what do I know about 
the man that I might tell them ... I was like 
a screener . . . and people had to deal with 
me," said Kenny. 

Working closely with Wlnshlp at The 
Olobe permitted Kenny to make a lot of 
Important friends and contacts. One man 
in particular took Kenny "under his wing." 
"Dexter Eure In the Promotion department. 
Dexter has a flair and a style that's beyond 
mortal men. When I first came, he kind of 
let me know where I stood there. That Is, he 
let me know who I worked for and some of 
what I might run Into. 

"There were times that I got a little dis- 
couraged and Dexter would give me a 
boost when I needed It. And then, at other 
times, he'd see me getting a bit beside my- 
self, maybe feeling the air of power Just a 
bit too much, and he'd pull my coat, which 
was Important. Us young men need that 
from older men." 

Kenny also became good friends with 
the ©lobe's popular, political cartoonist 
Paul Szep. "He's a real nice guy, (his office) 
was where I went to get away from every- 
one else ... he has a nice, old comfortable 
barber chair, music, and I learned how to 
play golf In Paul's office. And, I found that 
I'm pretty good at It as well." 

After graduation, Kenny plans to return 
to Connecticut to operate his father's 
maintenance firm with his older brother. His 
father plans to retire next year. And, In a 
year or so, Kenny would like to attend law 
school: either Yale, the University of Con- 
necticut or the University of New Haven. 
Kenny Is also Interested In entrepreneur- 
ship and, since his stint at The Boston 
Olobe, Journalism. 

"I realized the real power of the press, 
the power of the pen— putting letters to- 
gether to make words, to make sentences 
to make paragraphs Is a good field, and 
it's something that I'd like to do," said Ken- 

Dick Doucette, RLS 

A management position in the 

Mention recreation management or out- 
door recreation a* a major to the average 
college student and the reaction will be a 
look of skepticism. These Boston Bouve ma- 
jors have been stereotyped as catering to 
students Interested In "Racquetball 1", 
having little Interest In developing a more 
"conventional" career. 

Dick Doucette, a senior majoring In both 
these areas disproves the above. 

"It Is through the understanding of out- 
door recreation and effective recreation 
management that millions of vacationers 
can and do enjoy America's parks, lakes, 
and waterways." 

It was the close Interrelationship be- 
tween "rec. management" and "outdoor 
rec." that prompted Dick to take a dual 

The theoretical Information presented to 
him In classes was the foundation on which 
Dick could build while working on co-op. 

Dick's co-op assignments allowed him to 

gain practical experience In both areas of 
study. These experiences ranged from 
working In an outdoor education center on 
Cape Cod to program director for An- 
dover's Department of Community Ser- 

One of two Jobs that Dick highlighted 
was a position he secured as a park ranger 
with the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. It was 
In this Job that he was exposed to the su- 
pervision and malntalnance of Inland 
parks and seashore environments. 

A second dealt with conservation man- 
agement and planning In the Boston Chap- 
ter of the Appalachian Mountain Club, the 
oldest chapter In the U.S. Dick's position as 
conservation Intern enabled him to take an 
active role In these funcatlonal areas. 

Dick's dedication to his chosen fleld(s) 
and persistence In developing his personal 
and professional goals will ensure him suc- 
cess In the future. 

Daryl Cittone, Marketing 

From Mobil Oil To Disney World 

Contrasting business practices, Interac- 
tion with all levels of management, and ex- 
tensive travel have been the guidelines for 
Daryl Clttone's career path. 

Daryl's primary Interests are In market- 
ing and sales management. 

He began building his "experience port- 
folio" In marketing research first with A.H.F. 
In New York City and later In Perth Amboy, 
N.J. at B.D.S. - a marketing company. 

At A.H.F. Daryl received first-hand exper- 
ience In conducting marketing research of 
various companies' product lines through 
"telemarketing." From the Information he 
was able to obtain • by calling consumers 
at random • Daryl analyzed and summa- 
rized products' strengths and weaknesses 
based on consumer opinion. 

Later, at B.D.S. he participated In coordi- 
nating the layout of advertising In various 
trade Journals for "Fortune 500" clients. 
Daryl was also responsible for meeting 
publication deadlines and quotas. 

The responsibilities, given to Daryl In 
both these marketing assignments allowed 
him to take an active role In many aspects 
of the marketing function. 

Daryl then focused on learning the mar- 
keting structure of a large multi-national 
corporation • Mobil OH - and Its relationship 
to sales. 

He trained In the retail department at the 
corporate headquarters becoming In- 
volved In gasoline allocation, pricing strat- 
egy, and analyzing competlve activities 

within Mobil's east coast gasoline opera- 
tion. The analysis Daryl generated for each 
of these areas was combined In monthly 
status reports distributed to department 
heads. Dally communication with district 
sales representltlves was essential In col- 
lecting data and understanding the com- 
plex gasoline market. 

Daryl sees the experience gained at Mo- 
bil as another step In his understanding of 
adaptive marketing and Its Increasing val- 
ue In today's economic climate. 

After Mobil, Co-op took Daryl to Florida 
and Walt Disney World. He was trained In 
the merchandising department as a Sales 
Host which Incorporated sales techniques 
with classes In management training. The 
Introduction to Disney's "Epcot Center" 
provided Daryl with an enjoyable chal- 
lenge In learning Its new computerized sys- 

One of Daryl's primary objectives prior to 
graduating was to live and work In Israel. 
He wanted to experience the constant 
pressure Its people live under and learn 
how they have adapted. Daryl Joined the 
Dan Hotel Corporation In Casarea where 
he successfully completed their manage- 
ment training program Involving several 
aspects of hotel management. His six 
months In Israel provided great personal 
satisfaction with the realization that he 
was capable of making decisions In times 
of crisis. 

Sam Slob 

Poor Sam Slob. He Just wanted a co-op Job, any co-op Job, but he was having 
severe problems. It seems that he couldn't even get an appointment with his co- 
op advisor. A typical phone conversation with the secretary: 

Sam: "Could I make an appointment with my advisor?" 

Secretary: "Sure. There are some openings In the afternoon tomorrow. Could I 
have your name please?" 

Sam: "Yeah, Sam Slob." 

Secretary: "Oh . . . (giggle) YOU want to apply for a CO-OP Job? (giggle) I'm 
sorry, but there are no more appointments available." 

Sam: "But-" 

Secretary: "Goodbye." 

This had been happening since his first meeting with co-op during freshman 
year. It was getting down to the wire though, now. He'd already switched 
divisions twice to avoid co-op (and to take care of a couple of academic 
problems . . . "It was the teacher — he/she didn't like the way I was dressed"), 
but switching divisions was no longer an alternative. Money was running out. 

It was then that Sam came to us, the Cauldron staff, for advice. 

"I mean, I don't understand," he said while chewing on a four day old cigar, "I 
mean hey, I'm a nice, fun-loving, laid-back klnda guy, but no one even wants to 
talk to me about a Jobl" 

Now I ask you ... Is the picture below a picture of a much-sought-after co-op 

We agreed that Sam needed a little (?) help, so we offered him the Cauldron 
"Whip You Into Shape In 24 Hours or Less" program.

Sam Suave 

( 24 hours later) 

"This Is utterly amazing," said Sam Suave, "I've undergone a complete meta- 
morphosis In twenty-tour hours." He was now ready to take on the business 

"I am now confident that I will have no difficulty In obtaining co-operative 
employment for the approaching quarter. When I become president of one of 
the Big Eight firms, I will remember you all for your assistance." 

(Had we created a monster? Maybe it was the dictionary we gave him for 
breakfast . . .) 

Sam Suave Interviewed for twelve Jobs and was offered all of them. He Is 
currently working as an assistant to the president of IBM. 

The new Sam Is pictured below . . .

some critics say the facial

Suzy Slouch 

( . . . and now, equal time for the women . . . ) 
Suzy Slouch was definitely a sad case. Not 
only did she have the personality of a wet rag, 
but she was a klutz. People would run and hide 
when they saw her coming. In NU housing she 
was the first student to have a single — 

During her first visit to her co-op adviser, she 
broke the chair she was sitting In, knocked the 
coat rack over onto her advisor's head, and 
set the office on fire when she lit up a cigarette 
to calm her nerves, Needless to say, the secre- 
tary In co-op wasn't particularly pleasant to 
Suzy either. 

Unlike Sam Slob, Suzy knew she had a prob- 
lem. However, she was too embarrassed and 
shy to try to seek assistance. She was clever 
though, and contrived a plan to fake her first 
co-op. She convinced her mother to attest to 
being an Innkeeper In a resort town and sadly 
In need of a managerial assistant. She then 
went home for three months and assisted her 

mother In managing thejr home. After three 
months of broken mirrors, windows, and 
household appliances, her mother swore that 
she would never again go along with one of 
Suzy's schemes. 

Suzy realized that she couldn't count on her 
mother again, and she could not switch divi- 
sions and stay In school (the university need- 
ed to recover from the Impact of having her on 
campus already). There were not any choices 

It was at this point that she ran Into (literally, 
of course) Sam Suave. After collecting his be- 
longings that had fallen out of his briefcase 
when Suzy bumped Into him, he told her his 

Suzy was very Impressed (underneath that 
expressionless face), and decided that the 
time had come to change. After the amazing 
transformation of Sam Slob to Sam Suave, the 
Cauldron staff was feeling cocky and decided 
we could help ANYONE . . .

Could It be true? Here she was, Suzy Sophisticated, 
standing In front of us. And, for the very first time In her life, 
there was an expression on her face — one of happiness 
and self-confidence. She walked across the room (without 
tripping or breaking anythlngl) and assertively called her 
co-op advisor. 

Two weeks later she was offered a total of 14 positions. 
She chose a Job as a manager of a small gift shop that 
specializes In glassware and antiques. While on co-op 
she's also teaching a New Horizons course at night —

Debbie Silver, CJ 

She took the good with the bad 

With many Federal Budget cuts occurring 
during 1979-1980, the Criminal Justice co- 
op department wa* hit hard. A good major- 
ity of the top Job* previously available 
were government Job*. When those were 
gone, most C.J. majors had to do their own 
Job hunting. What co-op Jobs were left were 
often mediocre and unchallenglng. 

Debbie Silver was one C.J. major who 
saw the good and bad side of co-op first 
hand. She says the word "co-op" either 
haunts you for five years or makes you 
Jump for Joy. For most people It offered a 
break from school and time to make 
enough money to come back. For her, 
though the money aspect was good, the 
Jobs themselves were far from exciting. 

Debbie's first co-op job was with the Unit- 
ed States Department of Labor In New York 
City. Her duties were to approve bills for 
the office of Workmens Compensation. She 
described the office she worked In as small 
and crowded. Thirty people were Jammed 
Into a room the size of the Housing Office at 
NU. To make matters worse, she worked 
there during the summer and there was no 
fan In the office. Debbie criticized the Job 
for lacking Interaction with the public. 
"Isn't that Just the Job you always want- 
ed?", she asks. But there were some good 
points about the Job: the pay and the loca- 
tion. Her office was right In Times Square, 
and she said the excitement of that loca- 
tion made up for the depressing Job. 

After three months at her first Job, Debbie 
said she needed a change and went Job 
hunting on her own. She found what she 
describes as the "perfect" Job. The only 
criticism was that It was volunteer work. 

But, at the same time, she was desperate 
to get out of the tiny office and she's glad 
she did. The Job she found was at the West- 
chester County Penitentiary In New York. 
She was an Intern for the work release pro- 
gram. Debbie said that by working In the 
prison for three months she certainly 
learned a lot about the criminal Justice sys- 
tem. And she said that It was a wonderful 
experience, one that showed her the reali- 
ty of the working world. Before this Job her 
reason for becoming a criminal Justice ma- 
jor was to change the world. After the ex- 
perience, she said her Ideals changed 

When asked what she thought about her 
co-op advisors, Debbie said "Advisor Isn't 
really the word I was thinking of." 

"To be fair though, she actually did help 
me." Debbie said finally. With the help of 
her co-op advisor she learned how to write 
her resume and how to control her temper 
when things get out of hand — like the time 
when her co-op advisor gave Debbie a Job 
description five minutes before the Inter- 
view. It didn't give her much time to pre- 
pare and the first question asked In the 
Interview was about the Job Itself. 

What was her final rating of the North- 
eastern co-op experience? It Is favorable, 
because she says that co-op really did 
help her. The experience taught her how to 
handle an Interview and how to go after 
the things she really wants. 

"Going through co-op and realizing what 
really goes on In the outside world makes 
you grow up fast, and for that I say 
thanks," said Debbie. 

Art Wing, Civil Engineering 

Spent a year "in the field" 

Art Wing isn't exactly telling the truth In 
the above photo: he didn't have hit senior 
picture taken for MOM. But, he did have a 
better excuse than most seniors. Art, a civil 
engineering major, missed his portrait sit- 
ting because he was away on co-op for an 
entire year In the Washington, D.C. area. 

He worked for Camp Dresser & MeKee 
(CDM) In Arlington, VA, a design firm spe- 
cializing In water pollution control and 
waste water treatment. His position was a 
field (construction) Inspector, and his main 
repsonslblllty was to check ongoing repair 

"That meant that I crawled under a lot of 
little tunnels and looked up at these little 
tubes to make sure that none of them were 
cracked; to check all the concrete and 
make sure It wasn't fractured . . . and 
check for structural fatigue," said Art. 

Before his work In the field, Art had spent 
three consecutive co-op terms working for 
CDM as a member of their construction ser- 
vices staff In New York, NY. There, he was 
Involved In change orders, shop drawings 
and he developed cost projections. 

He requested an opportunity to work In 
the field, "because I wanted to learn more 
about construction and design for environ- 
mental engineering." So, his New York su- 
pervisor developed a position for him. The 
only problem was that the resident project 
manager down In Arlington, VA, was not 
thrilled about working with a co-op, but 
agreed because Art would be "cost-etfl- 

On that note, Art headed south for a six- 
month term with advice from his supervi- 
sor: "Don't screw up." 

Well, he didn't screw up because after 

his term was up, the project manager, who 
had been so wary of co-ops, asked him to 
remain for an additional six months. 

"My staying was a result of my perfor- 
mance as well as their need," said Art. 

Unfortunately, year long co-op periods 
aren't normal practice here at NU and, as a 
result of his additional on-the-job exper- 
ience, Art lost a quarter of classes and will 
not graduate until September. 

Being displaced for a year had a number 
of other disadvantages, according to Art, 
with the main one being the lack of com- 
pany his own age. 

"With the exception of one of the con- 
struction Inspectors, everyone I was work- 
ing with had children that were older than I 
was. So, there was a significant maturity 
gap ... a knowledge gap that took some 
adjusting to on my part," said Art. 

Also, because the Washington transfer 
was last minute, Art had to find housing, 
and fast. He lived first with his 83-year-old 
Godmother who lived In the area and later 
moved closer to CDM, Into a condominium 
which he shared with a friend of his God- 
mother's, a 77-year-old woman. 

He said the age difference only present- 
ed a problem with a gossipy condo neigh- 
bor who raised eyebrows when he discov- 
ered Art was not related to the woman he 
was living with. 

After his term In Washington, Art said he 
prefers field work to work In the office. "It 
was nice to be outside, the hours were dif- 
ferent and It was less presssure." 

And the drawbacks to field work? 

"You wear a hard hat, boots, and you 
smell like shit . . . you certainly can't go 
right out on a date afterwards." 

Paul Murphy, Journalism 

State House beat: lots of 

Where's a good place to be during elec- 
tion time? How about the State House — 
smack In the middle of political activity? 
Well, that's exactly where Journalism major 
Paul Murphy was during November of 
1982— working at The Boston Globe State 
House Bureau on Beacon Hill. 

"I was busy all the time," said Paul. 
"And, to be In an office like that . . . the 
office was so small. There were six people 
In there constantly and on deadline I didn't 
even have a place to sit. They used to have 
a phone on the wall and I'd go out and sit 
on the steps— that was my office." 

His Job Involved a lot of legwork, but he 
said It was Interesting legwork which In- 
cluded Investigative research. He also cov- 
ered some of the governor's press confer- 
ences and managed to get some articles 
Into the newspaper uner the State House 
Bureau byline, despite The Globe's recent 
union ruling which forbids co-ops to write. 

Prior to his work at the State House, Paul 
had put In some time on The Globe's Infa- 
mous city desk, answering the telephone 
and running errands on the 5:00 p.m. to 
1:00 a.m. shift. And, It was during the mid- 
dle of a six month co-op on the desk that 
Paul was asked to work for the State House 

Paul said he prefered the pace and the 
atmosphere at the State House over the 
city desk because he was able to learn 
more about reporting news as It happens. 

"You're exposed directly to the news . . . 
the news that you cover Is right there In the 
building or right within the Government 
Center area," said Paul 

Paul, a native of Stoneham, spent his 

freshman year at Northeastern's Burlington 
campus, getting a lot of his requirements 
out of the way. Then, he began commuting 
to the Boston campus, where he also 
worked during his first co-op: In the New 
England Press Assoc, office on the second 
floor of the Lake building. During his stay 
with NEPA, Paul helped In the organization 
of the annual NEPA convention at the 
Sheraton Hotel In Boston which he said was 
a good time and a good place to make 

For the following co-op term, Paul worked 
with WGBH, Channel 2. His primary respon- 
sibility there was to answer phones In the 
audience services department. He also put 
out a weekly newsletter and represented 
his department In weekly station meetings. 
While at WGBH, Paul said he organized a 
new system for tallying public response for 
WGBH FM, the radio station. 

"We had always answered complaints 
for Channel 2 In one fashion, but then I had 
to set .up an Information bank for the radio 
station, GBH FM, that's housed In the same 
building. So I took the program that they 
had for television, as far as processing all 
the answers and extended It to radio," 
said Paul. 

While In school, he spent a lot of time 
writing for the Northeastern News (A Divi- 
sion). It Is here that Paul says he has 
gained most of his actual writing exper- 
ience "by doing." And, as far as co-op 
goes, Paul considers all of his Jobs as valu- 
able because of the experience and confi- 
dence he gained by working with other 
people In the business.

or Cooperative education 















Dr. Gerald Davis 

Pro-NU, pro-Med. Tech. 

To say that Dr. Gerald Davis Is a busy man would be a gross 
understatement. In addition to carrying a full teaching load of 
two or three courses per quarter, he Is celebrating his first year 
anniversary of becoming chairman of the department of Medical 
Laboratory Science also, he Is Involved In research; he's a mem- 
ber of the Biomedical Science Colloquium Committee; and he's a 
member of the Northeastern chapet of Sigma XI. His days aver- 
age 12 to 14 hours. 

Even with all of his other responsibilities, teaching Is very Im- 
portant to him and he spends many hours preparing for his 
classes. He Is very proud of his primary responsibility, the medi- 
cal technology program, and feels that "It's the finest In the 
country." The excellence of the department, according to Davis, 
can be attributed to the quality of the faculty within It. The 
department Is very student oriented. "All of us have worked In 

the field, and are preparing students for a profession we have a 
great deal of pride In . . . we want the students to be good and 
they an." 

There have been a number of changes In the medical laborato- 
ry science department during the eight years that Davis has 
been here. Student enrollments have dropped, partly due to 
economic conditions, but Davis feels that "the quality has Im- 
proved." There are many students that are members of the Mas- 
sachusetts Student Assoc, of Medical Technologists, and this Is 
an Important part of their education. This allows them to be In a 
professional society, make Important contacts, and Improve 
their self Images. 

"There are many possibilities In the field of medical technol- 
ogy, and Northeastern graduates do very well, moving up quick- 

He hopes to see more changes In the Medical technology 
program In the future — no radical changes, but to constantly 
Improve the program that he said Is excellent already. He would 
like to see a little more flexibility In the course requirements, to 
allow more opportunity for elective*. 

"The medical technology program Is a rigorous, somewhat 
pressured program. For example, during their final quarter of 
school, seniors must take a five year cumulative course of all 
they've learned In their five years at Northeastern. They don't 
know until a day or two before graduation If they are definitely 
going to graduate," said Davis. 

Davis has been working on a special research project for the 
past 12 years. Its objective Is to Identify people who are at risk of 
having blood clot formation. 

"I feel lucky to be In Boston because many of the leading 
researchers In the field are here and they are valuable to my 
research," said Davis. He, like many other researchers here at 
Northeastern, has work study students who assist him In the lab. 
"The work study program Is very helpful ... It provides us with a 
work force and gives them an education not affordable without 
government support." 

Before teaching at Northeastern, Davis taught at the University 
of California. When asked how Northeastern students compared 
to the students In California, he said that co-op makes a definite 
difference. "After co-op," Davis said, "the student Is no longer a 
passive Individual, he won't Just sit and accept Information. The 
student wants to know why he's learning things, demanding 

The professors, In turn, can learn from their students who have 
been out In the field. According to Davis, co-op shouldn't be 
considered as a way to offset tuition costs but rather as the 
valuable experience that Is gained. When you can apply for a 
Job with two to three years of experience, you have a great 
advantage, and added that being able to train and work In 
Boston hospitals Is an Invaluable experience. "Boston Is the medi- 
cal center of the world." 

"Am I pro-NU?" chuckles Davis, "Yes I'm pro-Nil ... I'm also 
pro-medical technology!" 




"A way with words" 

"Understanding the Important of effective communication 
(verbal and non-verbal) In our dally live* . . . learning how to 
develop our Individual style* for adaptation to changing situa- 
tions we encounter . . . realizing that the way we communicate 
clearly reflects how we feel." These are Just a few of the topic* 
Michael Woodnick discusses In his communication classes. 

According to Professor Woodnick, "the art of effective commu- 
nication Is a continuous learning process." Through the many 
experiences we encounter In our personal and professional 
lives, understanding how others feel about certain situation* or 
topic*, and adapting our style to accomodate those feelings can 
help us be successful In living and working with others. 

Professor Woodnlck's classes begin by presenting students 
with theoretical Information necessary to building their commu- 
nication skills. Then, they gain the practical experience needed 
to strengthen their styles through Individual class presentations 
or "talks." The atmosphere of the classes Is supportive as the 
presentations are a first for many. The constructive feedback 
given to the student by his or her classmates Is of great value for 
developing effective techniques. 

Professor Woodnick Is dedicated to helping students Improve 
their communication skills. As he puts It: "I get a great deal of 
personal satisfaction from seeing the tremendous progress 
many of my students make ... I realize that some students aren't 
sold on the value of communications classes, yet, I'm confident 
that one day when they're out In the working world they'll realize 
and use what they learned here." 

Fredrick Wiseman 

Surveying market 

Developing product market studies for Gillette . . . structuring 
surveys for Chevrolet . . . compiling data for the Massachusetts 
Lottery . . . These are all past class projects of Professor Fredrick 
Wiseman's marketing resource course. 

The structure of Wiseman's class generally begins with the 
presentation of a marketing problem. Any background Informa- 
tion available Is discussed In class where marketing research 
techniques are Introduced. Once the problem has been ana- 
lyzed and the appropriate technique selected, generally survey 
form, the designing of a questionnaire can begin. Wiseman gives 
particular attention to this segment, concentrating on the se- 
quence that questions will be asked. Sequencing Is particularly 
Important because of Its multi-purpose role: retaining the Interest 
of those surveyed throughout the entire questionnaire; categoriz- 
ing respondents; and segmenting particular Information the re- 
searcher Is looking for after the questionnaire has been complet- 

And, the process for selecting them Is the next step — develop- 
ing the sample and sample size. Once the sample size has been 
established the questionnaires can be mailed. 

As returns begin coming In, the process for analyzing them can 
be used to build the data base. When all the possible responses 
are In the researcher can start making correlations of the data 
that Is to be highlighted In recommendations concerning a solu- 
tion to the problem at hand. 

Wiseman's teaching objectives are to Instill every facet of this 
Involved process Into his students, so they will leave his class 
with a sense of what an effective, thorough marketing survey Is, 
with regard to preparation, utilization and participation. 

John Shank 

Learning to relax 

What Is "leisure" and how does It relate to our Individual 
lifestyles? This Is the major question presented In Professor John 
Shank's Leisure and Lifestyle course. 

This once obscure course offered by the Recreation and Lei- 
sure Studies Department of Boston Bouve has grown steadily 
since It was opened to other colleges a few years ago. 

Theories are presented to students defining "leisure" as func- 
tions of time, activity, and state of mind. 

Class discussions examine a variety of experiences and con- 
ditions that contribute to lifestyle development. 

Students are expected to take an active role In examining 
their own lifestyle developments and attempt to formulate an 
understanding of their present and future leisure lifestyles. 

With Professor Shank's guidance, students are given the op- 
portunity to examine the relationships between leisure and 
work, family and lifespan. Integrated Into these relationships are 
contemporary Issues related to leisure and lifestyle such as ener- 
gy, economics, environment, technology, and health. Students 
are encouraged to express their personal feelings, attitudes and 
values regarding these Issues. 

Professor Shank was brought into the department to teach 
recreational therapy. He hopes that upon completing the course 
students will be able to successfully blend the quantity and 
quality of leisure that enhances their lifestyle. 

Philip R. McDonald 

Keeps BA school 
one step ahead 

As professionalism In education becomes a national trend, 
students and their parents will look for the kind of quality educa- 
tion available at Northeastern, said the new dean of the College 
of Business Administration, Philip R. McDonald. 

"The reality Is that In the next 10 or 15 years, there Is going to 
be a surplus of people entering the Job market," said McDonald, 
who succeeds David H. Blake as dean of the college. Blake's 
resignation became effective In December. 

With more people looking for Jobs, competition for Jobs will be 
fierce, creating a new emphasis on finding a Job. McDonald 
believes this will result In more parents steering their children 
towards professional schools — business schools, engineering 
schools, and science schools — as opposed to liberal arts col- 

At the same time, the number of potential students will contin- 
ue to decline and competition for those students will Increase. 
McDonald, professor of marketing, Intends to aggressively mar- 
ket "the fine educational product and practicality of the College 
of Business Administration." 

McDonald said Northeastern's cooperative education plan, 
combining work experience and professional contacts with the 
college's curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate 
levels, places the college In the competitive forefront of the 
trend towards educational relevance. 

One priority for McDonald Is pursuing a strong working partner- 
ship with the business community. 

"The technology of management Is developing far faster than 
managerial skills," he said, noting, for example, the Increasing 
reliance on the computer terminal In the modern day manager's 
work site. 

The new dean said he Intends to work closely with, and seek 
the counsel of, the college's Board of Visitors. 

The Board of Visitors, a group of executives from the business 
community, was established last year to advise and link the 
college to the management community. 

McDonald also hopes to stimulate research by the college 
faculty focusing on the problems of business, such as lagging 
American productivity, In an attempt to solve those problems 
with the faculty's skills, he said. 

McDonald played a key role In the creation and development 
of the college's new High Technology MBA, and served as the 
faculty coordinator for the program. 

McDonald, 47, earned both a Doctor of Business Administra- 
tion (DBA) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from 
Harvard University's Graduate School of Business Administra- 
tion. He received his undergraduate degree from the University 
of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. 

He was acting dean of the college from 1979-80. Before com- 
ing to Northeastern In 1968, he taught at the State University of 
New York at Buffalo and was a research associate and later 
Instructor for business administration at the Harvard Graduate 
School of Business Administration. He was also a visiting profes- 
sor at IMEDE Management Development Institute, Lausanne, 

McDonald also worked In the corporate sector and has exten- 
sive experience In corporate consulting. He Is the author of nu- 
merous books, monographs, articles and case studies.

Paul Kalaghan 

High tech comes to 

As Dean of Northeastern'* newest college, the College of Com- 
puter Science, Dean Paul Kalaghan Is well known for his Innova- 
tive Ideas. 

Since the last college to be established (the College of Crimi- 
nal Justice) 17 years ago, there have been no traditional guide- 
lines for Kalaghan to follow, which seems to suit him very well. He 
finds more satisfaction In being able to do things that have never 
been done before. 

Kalaghan hasn't always been In the education business — he 
worked for 12 years In the high tech Industry. After that, he 
obtained his PhD. from Harvard and worked for the Harvard 
Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics In Cambridge. He was In- 
strumental In bringing about the purchase of the VAX computer 
system there, making It the first place locally to own the VAX. 

Many things are planned for the college, according to Ka- 
laghan. An advanced placement programming exam Is being 
developed for Incoming freshmen. He would like to establish a 
few different classes especially for computer science students, 
to make them "a cut above the rest." The overall Intent Is to 
Impress upon people (via the curriculum) that computers are 
part of the human community. 

"Technology and science affect the society they are a part 
of," said Kalaghan. One of the courses Kalaghan would like to 
teach personally would be a course In ethics. He's extremely 
Interested In the relationship of computers and society. He feels 
that Is Important for all students to have at least an elementary 
background of computers. He Is In favor of the development of a 
computer literacy requirement for all students, regardless of 
their major. 

Good faculty are difficult to find, as Kalaghan well knows. 
There Is a nationwide shortage of computer science professors 
due to the many who go Into Industry. The reasons for this might 
Include high salaries and Ideal reserach facilities offered by 
Industry. Various steps are being taken to recruit faculty. In 
addition to word of mouth and recruiting at computer shows and 
conventions, a committee Is looking Into exchange, part-time, 
and one year visits by Industry experts. There are also plans 
underway to Improve and expand upon equipment here at NU, 

and this will help to make Northeastern a more attractive place 
for research for prospective faculty. 

Kalaghan also looks forward to many changes In the future, 
Including curriculum revaluation, an Industrial advisory board, 
and a master's degree program. 

Dr. Joseph 

Leave your options 

Dr. Joseph Barbeau Is a generalise Currently the director of the 
Life Career Planning Program, Barbeau feels that It has been 
much more beneficial for him to change Jobs every few years or 
so, whenever the position loses the challenge or loses his Inter- 
est. He has held five positions at Northeastern since he began as 
a professor here In 19S9. In addition to teaching, Barbeau has 
also been an administrator and co-op advisor, as well as a 
student (he earned his doctorate degree from NU a few years 

Barbeau Is extremely concerned with how life/career planning 
relates to co-op. Many students will be offered positions by their 
co-op employers upon graduation. Whether this happens or not, 
Barbeau feels that students should work to be as marketable as 
possible by gaining experience and knowlege In many fields, In 
addition to a good resume and Interview skills. Barbeau's advice 
Is not to specialize too much, but to be generalized and leave as 
many options open as possible. 

One of Barbeau's responsibilities Is to run workshops for re- 
sume writing and Interviewing techniques. Students who attend 
these workshops are shown the purpose and content of a good 
resume, and are also encouraged to stop by for Individual assis- 
tance with their own resumes. Many sources of Information 
about career opportunities are also available to students. There 
are even four credit courses offered that are designed to assist 
students In planning their careers. Topics Include career plan- 
ning and resources, decision making, self assessment, Interview- 
ing techniques, and written communications (Including the pro- 
fessional Interview). 

Barbeau is Involved In many other projects as well as the Life 
Career Planning Program. He Is sponsoring a clearing house of 
co-operative education literature for distribution to Interested 
colleges and universities across the country. He Is also partici- 
pating In the "Teletext" pilot project being sponsored by WGBH. 
He has written numerous articles and his 3rd book, entitled "Ad- 
ministration of off campus experiential programs Is being pub- 
lished this year. 

Coffee And Donuts With The Faculty 



The Production 
Of Your Yearbook 

In the next tew pages we will give you an Inside look 
at how we put together your yearbook. 

CJu.o*aJ "Bible? 

ladder diagram 

An overall feeling of fhe yearbook Is established at the very 
beginning. Over the summer we decided that ours would run 
along the Idea of "up close and personal", showing our audi- 
ence that Northeastern Is NOT a factory but a place to learn 
and grow. 

The first step Is to decide (In pencil, subject to changel) 
what goes where according to page numbers, sections, 

Find editors who are willing and able to tackle a section of the 
book (In some cases, such as ours, these editors Jump on 
board at various times) 

Brainstorming for story and picture Ideas, hoprefully well In 
advance of deadlines so writers and photographers have 
plenty of time to work and take several assignments. 
Those stories and pictures are then assigned. 

When stories come back . . . 

a. edit 

b. re-type onto special 3-C forms 

c. proofread and correct typos 

d. character count for copyflttlng 

When dim comet back . . . 

a. rolls developed 

b. contact sheet* made 

c. editor selects possible shots tor his/her section or story 

d. chosen shots are printed 

Make a rough layout with copy and photos you have pre- 
determined to go on that particular page. (This Is a lesson 
In Itself — a lot of fun) 

a. decide how to play the pictures 

b. decide column width of copy and placement, and fit 

After approval, rough layout Is transformed Into a final layout 
by copying onto a 3-R form with special Instructions Included. 

3-R forms are separated and placed Into envelopes for 
EACH AND EVERY PAGE of the book. The envelopes contain 
all of the Information about what's Inside. All pictures, 
copy sheets, and artwork must be labelled with Job num- 
ber, page, and position numbers. 


After everything Is In the envelope ready to go, the editor 
must sit down and proofread and check every page (after 
all, It's her ass . . . ). At this point carbons are pulled from 
the copy and layout forms. One copy of everything Is kept 
In our staff records. 


The deadline Is then packed and mailed. (WHEWI) 

This procedure Is ongoing and steps 4 through 1 1 are repeated for every 
deadline. So you can see why we all went crazy around deadlines. Work- 
Ing with a skeleton staff didn't make things easy for any of us (especially 
since the elves we'd requisitioned are still on backorder . . . ). However, 

we all survived (and even managed to pass all of our classesl) and 
believe that we've made your book the best one possible. 
A Yearbook Lasts Forever . . .

Summer fades to grey 

During the summer season the 
shores of this man-made lake are 
awash with color as bright swim- 
suits of fuschia and turquoise bask 
on the golden sand or chase 
across the waves. The white-suit- 
ed, mirror-faced guard maintains 
her perch above the scene, devel- 
oping a tan. 

Marinas litter the shoreline turn- 
ing a profit as they spew crafts of 
the pleasure variety across the 
water from their neat, white slips. 

But, as summer turns to fall, the 

approaching cold weather en- 
courages a migration away from 
the lake. The fuschia on the shore 
becomes a maroun wlndbreaker 
on the swing. The neat, white slips 
become a bony skeleton as the 
summer people store their boats 
for the winter. It Is then that the 
marinas withdraw from the water; 
stacking the moorings Into a maze 
and herding the party boats out of 
the water onto the shore where 
they He dormant for the winter, as 
the scene fades to grey.

People who mattered 

Thank* to John Solem, long distance 
asslstant-to-the-edltor and precious 
being for mega morale-boosing mail- 
ings, photos and tapes. Viva Vlsagel 
(And keep trying to call-Ron.) 

Thanks to Kerry Dollard for her sense of 
humor and dental karate tournaments. 
(Also the rest of our contacts at Varden 
Studios: Stanley, Jim, Terry and Mike.) 

Special thanks to "Uncle Bob" Murphy for being on call 48 hours a 
day, and for sticking up for us when the yearbook company must 
have wanted to cancel our contract. This book would still be only 
clutter In 442 EC If it weren't for your guidance. 

Thanks to John "Raggedy Petty Gonzo" Devlin for taking the staff 
picture and for dropping by from time to time to Improve our editor's 
morale. (And, thanks to Mr. ft Mrs. D. for making him BLONDE.) 

Thanks to Dean Harvey Vetsteln, our advisor; and Cathy Craven, who has done so 
much for us that we're proud to call her an honorary staffer. 

Thanks to Jack Orlnold and his staff In Sports Information for photos and 
assistance, The Northeastern New* (both divisions) for copy and photos, 
and The Office of Public Information for copy and photos. Also, to Lynn 
Cabral for her superb crew photos; Mike Ouan, B.U. yearbook photo editor 
and Boston Globe photographer, for his picture of Laurie Ledgard; Joe 
Cane, NU-turned Museum School student, for baking REAL CHOCOLATE 
brownies for the staff; Bob Stabile for the use of his refrigerator; and to Joe 
Gibbons, a Suffolk University student and friend of the editor, who wrote 
tons of copy at the last minute to save the editor's skin — as usual. 

Thanks and hugs to Jill L'Heureux for coloring us pictures "for good 
luck on the deadline . . . what's a deadline?" 

"Hug therapy has been very important to our staff this year" 

Cheryl L'Heureux 

This year I was given the opportunity to try my hand at 
something new for me — writing. (Kathy told me It was 'cause 
she knew I'd be a good writer, but I think it was desperation 
and being short writers — no pun Intended — that made her 
ask mel) 

Anyway, my worst problem was being coherent. Coherent, 
according to Webster, is "connected, consistent, logical." Ac- 
cording to L'Heureux, It's "almost Impossible." Below you will 
find all the things I had wanted to say — but I don't have the 
energy to be coherent now either . . . 

"Hey roomle(s), I'll be home for dinner — next week . . . Hey 
Kath, It's not OUR year ... I need CHOCOLATE ... Mr. Keys, 
close that reflgerator door . . . Help, Uncle Bob, we'll NEVER 
make this deadline . . . Mary — when you hear hoofbeats, don't 
look for zebras . . . Cathy Craven, I'll get that candid shot of you 
yet . . . Jeffrey, thank you for listening to me ... I got to 
know some great people working on this book ... A Yearbook 
Lasts Forever (and putting this thing together lasts even long- 
erl) . . . this all started as a Joke, then someone took us seriously 
. . . send lawyers, guns, and money . . . looks like I'll be the first 
to graduate from NU with a double major of Med Tech and 
Yearbook . . . Kathy, you've been a great edltor-ln-chargel 

Jeffrey Adams 

"Only effort breeds 
reward . . . 

Think if 

you criticize." 

Thank You Kathy, Cheryl, And Catlyn. 



Kathy Soulia, Editor 

If I was a senior, I would use this 
space to dedicate The Cauldron to all 
my classmates ... or I would use It to 
Impart a few words of farewell and 
thanks to the people who made my 
education here so enjoyable . . . but, 
I'm "just a junior" which kills those 
ideas . . . 

So Instead, I'd like to dedicate this 
book to those students who are In- 
volved In student activities— who be- 
come participants rather than paci- 
fists in life here at NU. Only these stu- 
dents will take from this school as 
much as they have put into It. 

And, I'd like to thank EVERYONE who 
contributed to the 1983 Cauldron. 
Each one of you has made "life at the 
yearbook" more enjoyable for me. 
The list of credits was written from my 
memory and I sincerely hope that no 
one was forgotten. 

The two main reasons that this book 
is now in print, are smiling their faces 
off on the other side of this page. I 
have never seen two more dedicated 
people than Cheryl and Jeff, and I can 
honestly say that I love and respect 
them both. "Thanks" for hug therapy 
and for letting me cut loose with my 
infamous "editor bop." Let's hear It 
one more time for the Face of the 

Week Contest and our motto: "Hey, 
It's not my yearl" 

But seriously, class of 1983, I hope 
that you and your descendants enjoy 
this yearbook as much as I enjoyed 
preparing it. Good luck and may work 
In your chosen field bring "balance" 
and happiness to your lives. 

This book has become a very per- 
sonal commitment— one that many 
people close to me may have been 
unable to understand . . . especially 
my roomies. To the three of you, and 
to my cat Scrabble, I say "thanks" 
and "It's my turn to cook tonight . . . 
after that I'll do my chores . . . and 
then I'll sew my curtains . . . 

Mom and Dad: being born with a 
silver spoon In my mouth wasn't 
enough, love and thanks for teaching 
me how to do my best. John: love and 
thanks for being able to put things Into 
proper perspectlve-you're a star. And, 
special thanks to Therese Taylor for 
allowing me to use the photograph 
above, which was taken by her in 
Newport, R.I. 

Finally, for everyone who cared 
enough to climb four flights of stairs to 
check us out In 442EC — the bitch is . . .
