In a letter addressed to Chancellor Michael Wanell. dated Jan. 14, Sean Lemicux. director of the Project for Equal Rights for the ICLU. declared IPFW's recent ban- ner prohibition '•unconstitutional." Frank Borelli This fol- lowed an inde- pendent ICLU review of the current and prior campus posting poli- cies, student nondiscrimina- tion policies as slated in the Student Handbook and U t Sexualiiii Fi a nd Fourteenth Amendment rights. The letter staled thai, "Although Firsi Amendment nghis are not absolute and may be subject io time, place and manner regulation, such restrictions must be narrowly tai- lored to serve legitimate govern- mental intercsLs and must be applied without regard to the content of the message "The expressive activity here docs not materially disrupt class work, does noi involve substantial disorder and docs not invade the rights of others. The regulation is not a reasonable time, place or man- ner restriction imposed in further- ance of the University's educational mission." According to Frank Borelli. vice- chancellor of student affairs, the decision to rescind the policy did not occur as a result of the ICLU inves- tigation or [be impending litigation posed by United Scxualities. "That's the opinion of that orga- nization, obviously," said Borelli. "The review of what was changed in policy was found to be constitutionally permissible. But because it seemed pointed at one student group, a review was con- ducted. We will be reverting back io the current posting policy as staled in the student handbook." Even though the university has rescinded the policy, the group at the center of the controversy. United Sexualilies, has decided to press campus charges against the universi- ty The group is asking that the Campus Board of Appeals hear the case and determine if a violation of their student rights has taken place. If the board determines thai a violation has taken place, Uniicd Scxualities would like the adminis- tration io adopt measures that ensure that similar violations of student rights do not occur in the future. according to Jeff Sterling, president of United Sexualilies. "This is not a gay rights issue. "said Sterling. "If Ihe University so carelessly breaks its own rules, what's to stop them from doing it again?" said Sterling. The alleged violation of nghts in question stems from the banner pro- hibition. The prohibition was added to the current campus posting policy in June. The change allowed only ihe Student Activities Department to hang banners during SOAR and ASTRO student orientation periods. Prior io the policy change, cam- pus organizations were guaranteed up to iwo reserved weeks each semester during which to hang their banner. Longer periods of display were available on the approval of Kim Jacobs, director of Student Activities. Alter the change in policy, the banner slots reserved by Uniied Scxualities for (he June. July and August student orientations were revoked. "The change was made to reflect the availability of spaces to post banners. There are a limited number of spaces on campus to post, but there are more (student groups) than Cars blur as they race through the Round-a-bout. there are spaces." said Borelli, in a phone interview. However, allegations have sur- faced about the reason for the poli- cy change According to Sterling, the uni- versity allegedly staled, in a Seplember meeting between Sterling, Borelli and IPSGA presi- dent Kevin Orthman, that the reason for the policy change was in response to an atmosphere created by Uniied Scxualities' advertising that makes current and potential stu- dents uncomfortable. Further, the university did not want lo endorse the gay lifestyle and felt that il needed to remove the "offensive" advertising, Sterling said. One such "offensive" advertise- ment in question was posted in early summer by United Scxualities. The posier depicted two shirtless males kissing Several complaints were regis- tered with the university concerning these posters. A meeting between Jacobs and Sterling, resolved that ihese posters were not pornographic in nature and United Sexualilies had violated no posting rules However, due to the volume of complaints regarding the posier. an agreement was reached between Jacobs and Sterling that posters such as the one in question would not be hung again. On Oct 27, a meeting between Donna Bialik. intenm dean of stu- dents, and Sterling resulted in a rcc- ommendation that United Scxualities pursue a violation of point one of the definition of harass- ment, as defined in the Student Handbook, against the university and Borelli, acting as an agent of the university. Sterling made the decision to pursue the complaint, "based on part one of the student code, which includes the nondiscrimination poli- cy protections for alternative lifestyles and guarantees First and Fourteenth Amendment protec- tions" On Nov. 4, an informal hearing occurred to discuss and resolve the issue in order to avoid possible liti- gation. United Sexualilies maintained thai the formation of the new policy was "a violation of their rights, as expressed in ihe 1PFW Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct and outlined in the Student Handbook ." Sterling said. He said the university had not recognized ihe "...freedom for the open expression of ideas and opin- ions within limits that protect the rights of others, and respeci for the views and dignity of other persons." According to Sterling, United Scxualities requested three things at the meeting: I Public apology issued to United Sexualilies, 2. Reversal of Ihe new banner pro- hibition, 3 Mandatory diversity training for all university employees. According to Sterling, Borelli stated at the lime that the universi- ty's position concerning the banner prohibition policy would remain in effect. He also staled that Uniicd Sexualilies advertising docs not cre- ate a comfoning, supportive envi- ronment for freshmen No agreement was reached at the meeting United Sexualilies then expressed its intention to file formal charges against the university "United Sexualilies Filed wilh Campus Appeals for a violation of the student code The Campus Appeals Board makes a recommen- dation lo the chancellor, who has the final say," said Sterling.

Room 224. 'The luncheon was organized in order lo educate people about Slate House Day." says Jennifer Bosk. Alumni Office Director. The lun- cheon was sponsored by the Alumni Office. Stale House Day involves lobby- ists from various Indiana campuses, vying to get more funding for the campus that they represent The Legislative Issues Luncheon is "a good way for all IPFW lobbyists io be (homogeneous) in what they address as IPFW's needs," said Bosk. The Legislative Issues Luncheon and subsequent State House Day should not be viewed as activities thai are dominated by administrators. If students opt nol lo get involved, however, the possibility exists. Thai is an option dial Bosk hopes students do nol choose. "We are trying to get more slu- dents involved," said Bosk, "because the legislators want io hear from stu- dents They feel administrators are just doing iheir jobs, but when a stu- dent says something, (about the uni- versity's needs) it is seen as a more irue re flection. " The State House Day trip lo Indianapolis is free for students. which Bosk hopes is an incentive for attending The students also get a chance to meel with legislators face-lo-facc to discuss Ihe financial needs of IPFW. The effort to get more students involved has been moderately suc- cessful. Last year, only three students made the trip to Indianapolis. Thirty people are slated lo go this year. The increase of 27 people may seem more than moderate to some, but when compared wilh other regional branches of Indiana University that bring busloads of lob- byists, having only 30 seems lo put ihe campus ai a disadvantage. "We're starting small," said Bosk. The speakers at the Legislative Issues Luncheon were: Wall Branson, vice chancellor of Financial Affairs; Terry Slrueh; assistanl vice president for Stale Relations al Purdue Universiiy; Sue Talbot direc- tor of Hoosicrs for Higher Education, Indiana University. Bloomington; and Chris Ternei, director of Government Affairs at the Fori Wayne Chamber According to Wall Branson, the luncheon "was a success." The first issue discussed al (he luncheon was doubling the amount of the technology fund, which is cur- rently non-recurring and is set at S450.000. The goal is turn it into a recurring fund (thai is. an amount thai the uni- versity will automatically receive yearly) and to double il to $900,000. The second issue presented was Purdue Universily's (West Lafayette) proposal for an agriculture extension program, which will house two lo three professors and would establish an agricultural center on campus. The lasl issue discussed was a plan io establish a technical outreach program in which IPFW staff would help businesses with start up and operational concerns and provide consultations on business and techni- cal mailers. Another issue raised ai the lun- cheon was "cquily funding " According lo Branson "compare IPFW to other regional campuses, we're near the bottom." Branson went on to say that if IPFW's direct-operating appropria- tions (basic funds allotted for stu- dents attending) were given a markei- adjusuneni io $3 million, the campus would be considered average in terms of funding. If ihe universily's funding was increased to 56 million, ihe campus would be fall into the above-average category, as docs IUPUL Jennifer Bosk summarized: "(The point) was educating people as io the goals, and as a result of educa- tion, people saw the duly they had to attend the special day in Indy " IPFW is going one siep further in opening new worlds to ils students by offering "Sec And Sludy" tours.

January 29, 1993 Politics they are a'changin' Staff Editorial Cafe, bookstore need better hours Any student knows thai oui "workday" isn't nine to five, and our "workweek" doesn't completely end come Friday evening. Our job, being student*, is 24 hours a day without week- ends off. Unfortunately a couple of businesses here on campus seem to have forgot- ten this. Has anyone else noticed the quirky hours of the cafete- ria 7 Or the lack of hours the bookstore holds on die week- ends? Our question is this. "How can they serve the stu- dents when they aren't open?" Our first concern is the bookstore. We believe that being open only from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays is com- pletely unsatisfactory. We have been on campus during the weekends before and were in need of computer discs. We went to the campus bookstore to purchase some, but to no avail, they were closed. This was at 3 p.m. in the afternoon. In their defense, they say there aren't enough students on campus and the minimal amount of traffic is the reason for their absence of hours. We feel that regardless of how many students there are on campus on the weekends, we are entitled to bookstore. Have you ever been in a comput- er lab and realized that you've for- gotten your disc? You've just fin- ished your term paper and you find someone to guard the comput- er that holds your grade. You sprint to the bookstore only to find it closed and it's only 2:30 p.m. on a Saturday. Now what do you do? The fact is. you should never be placed in that situation. Your campus bookstore should be open on the weekends, includ- ing Sundays. Maybe the bookstore thinks once the weekend hits we're all out partying, because according to their hours we don't do much on the weekends. We beg i open to differ. College is a job that nevi Has anyone else noticed the quirky hours of the cafete- RIA? Or the lack of HOURS THE BOOKSTORE HOLDS ON THE WEEK- ENDS? Our question is THIS, "HOW CAN THEY SERVE THE STUDENTS WHEN THEY ARENT OPEN?" pm. and by the time we get to the cafete- ria you've got all the hot food cleaned up and put in the back. Not to mention the salad bar has disap- peared by then too. We believe that there should be hot food available until 3 p.m. That it is die busiest tune on campus. From about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. is when most classes are \cheduled Therefore, most of us are in class and can't get to the cafeteria until after 2 p.m We don't think the cafete- ria is serving the best interests of the student body. If so. they would coordinate their hours to those of the students Why not be open for lunch 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Then close down for two hours. Prepare things for the next day and re-open at 5 p.m. to serve a "hot" dinner for night students until 7 pm.~ To the Editor: A long tune ago, I heard a story about two frogs One, upon being placed into a pot of boiling water, ediately reacted to her sudden imfon by jumping out. The other frog was placed into a pot of n water. As the temperature increased, he failed to realize that the water was gradually com- ing to a boil. He stayed until it was too late to jump More recently, a story in the loumal-Gazette stated that political activity among today's college stu- dent's was at an all lime low One m given for this attitude was that many young people feel that there are no "burning issues" com- pelling them to take action. How. you might ask, could these two sto- ries be related? Please read on. Most people, like frogs, react to extreme discomfort while failing to perceive the subtle changes Unfortunately, many political .ues are "slow-burning" rather than "boiling point." This results in a situation where people are unwill- ing to take action, while the prob- lems in our society slowly come to a boil I believe that people who are not involved in the political process can be divided into four groups; stupid, ignorant, think they can't make a difference and just don't give a damn I have a response for each of these posi- tions. For those who are stupid, let me educate you. A decline happens gradually, but the fall comes quick- ly Try chopping down a tree.

Some of you know there are problems that need attention, but you're not sure what the solutions are. or bow to implement them. You fall into the ignorant category, and I suggest this: Educate your- self Learn the issues and learn the political processes so that you can affect change. "But one person can't make a difference." Let's be realistic. You cant expect everyone to just bow down to your selfish desires.

But please, in the mean time, don't be one of those people who constantly complains about or interferes with those who arc at least trying to solve the problems The fact of the matter is there are burning issues today But like the frog, we don't perceive the slowly changing situation maybe we're just too comfortable in our little pots, unwillin; expand the energy to jump Besides, the water's not boiling yet, it's just hot. very hot. least leave (he soups out until 4 p.m We understand that both of these businesses are sepa- rate from the university but their customers are the same We also understand that conforming lo our schedules is difficult.

On my mind: sdanna Dove, There is an epidemic sweeping through the classrooms across IPFW. Whai is it you ask, considering no one has informed you of anything out of the ordinary going on. That is why I am here, to explain to you what I call: Classroom Corruption. It is a cons [ant growing problem that affects every student here in i way or another, Maybe it is you who is causing the corruption or maybe you are one of its countless victims. I. myself, am a victim of this plague Jusl the other day I was dili- gently taking notes in class, when > students nexl to me decided to make plans for the upcoming week- end. They were talking for at leasi len minutes straight. I was so annoyed by the situation that the pro- fessor's voice was totally drowned out. and I completely missed the entire summary of his lecture 1 was a happy person Bui, there was really not loo much I could do about After this episode I watched over my class for the next couple of times and decided 1 would find the ulti- mate power seat I decided to posi- tion myself in a seal where I was sure the surrounding students would not talk. I was wrong The two students, Who 1 assumed were as eager to learn as I, talked almost the entire 50 minutes of the class. Once again I was the victim of Classroom Corruption 1 tried very hard to understand the need for my fellow students lo talk dunng class, but I really could not. I could not comprehend why they didn't write down whai they bad to say or simply wail I then asked myself whose faull is it really? I came down lo the conclusion of three possibilities: myself, my peers or my professors. When I considered myself as a possibility for the blame of the prob- lem I was only trying lo be fair. Who knows, maybe I am the one with die problem We are all here to get a better education, so thai we can get better jobs, so why is it necessary to talk during class Should I be forced to sit in a place that I am not comfortable, just because others have a problem with talking'' I honcsdy do noi feel that placing the blame on myself is a very rational answer, but I was only trying to be fair. The next possibility were my peers. Without having assigned seats in college, many students cannot handle the adult atmosphere, where they are permitted to sil by their friends. Who would think that col- lege students would find the concept of shutting up so hard to grasp? Bui, can we really place the blame on the students or do the pro- fessors have a major problem with the lack of control? When most students talk, the professor is aware of it so why don'l they say anything? You know they have lo get imtated by students who interrupt their lectures and don't pay attention. They also have to realize the interference that ii provides for the rest of ihe students in the class. With the different people lo blame. I came down to one issue that has to be the answer respect. The students do not have respect for the other studenLs or the professors for ihat matter. There is an overall lack of respeel that the students are giving off and it's popping up more and more around campus. I have talked to some fellow stu- dents and they think just as I do. although they are guilty of talking during class. 1 only want people to realize that even if they think no one can hear them whispering, we can. I know I am not the only one that wants to succeed in college, so if you are contributing lo Classroom Corruption in a negative manner, shut your mouth and pass a note!

January 29, 1998 The Communicator Albert Einstein Role models, responsibility and influence Your Turn: Heide Helnlck.e According 10 the Random House Websier's College dictionary, a role mode) is a "person whose behavior in a particular social selling is imi- taicd by others, especially by younger persons" As very young children, we grow up imitating cartoon super heroes like Superman. Wonder Woman, or the Power Rangers. As we get older, our role models become singers, aclors and athletes like Barbara Streisand. Ellen Degeneres and Michael Jordon Role models even take the form of teachers, clergy, relatives and neigh- bors. Young children and teenagers learn good things like the value of honest work and caring enough to spend tunc with someone. Many young people have made something out of their lives because someone I have bad a few role models in my life. I admired them for many reasons and learned valuable tilings from them First, I learned at a young age that I would have to push myself very bard to get ahead in this world, not just because I'm a female, but because I also nave a disability I guess I learned that from my parents and it has served me well in certain situations. I met a gentleman in the theater several years ago named Hal Gunderson He was the director of Jesters, a group of actors with vari- ous types of disabilities. He gave each of us an incredible opportunity to show others that we had value. He believed in each of us and that is a most precious gift, I think, anyone has ever given to me and I can give to another I had a professor in college. Dr. Kcllcy. who had a good impact on my life too. She cared enough to lis- ten when I needed it She also encouraged me to reach my poten- tial even when 1 thought about giv- ing up She wouldn't accept my excuses. I also had a couple of singers as role models They were Dolly Panon and Barbara Streisand. Both of these women grew up poor, but became famous in spite of it. They didn't let their spirit be broken by people making fun of their large chest or big nose These women also have donated money to worthwhile causes. Barbara Streisand, in particular, is a role model because she is not only talented and. in my opinion, pretty, she is also very smart and has definite views about various things. For a woman, I think, that is still not Fires ianite thouqhts throuqh the ashes Letting Go. Jeremy Ecen6arger "The day of the lord will come like a thief The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will he laid bare." 2 Peter 3:10 The smoke has entered my lungs, crept its way to my brain and has altered my view of the world. It has come from the left, the nght and directly in front of me. The blaze has beckoned me. The red, blanng Dames have burned me. Yet, what docs it all mean? Is it just me or have there been a rare flash of fires lately' First, they took my friend's house when his Christmas tree suddenly caught fire and turned the walls to ashes. Next, my poor friend at Three Rivers Apartments left her clothes drying on the heater and sent her studio in a blaze Finally, beyond all horror, they look my restaurant. Cheddars' menu is no longer exis- tent. Each fire has made its way closer to me, as if warning me lo beware and to take heed. Being a strong believer that everything happens for a reason, I cannot help hut think that these are signs of something still to come. So, since the fires began, I find myself looking over my apartment for things that may cause the next 91 1 call. I scurry to the trash can to make sure the cigarette butts 1 bad thrown in there earlier were fully burnt out. Next, I fly up the stairs 10 make sure my roommate remem- bered to blow out the candles she constantly lights. Finally, my jour- ney lakes me to every light in the house to make sure the light bulbs are not overheating. Paranoia is just running through my veins. However, the fumes of these fires have mostly affected my way of thinking My life sometimes feels like a Chicago interstate, where I'm going 75 miles-per-hour and cannot slow down because of the fear that someone might ram me from behind So. instead of pushing on the break, 1 push the cruise con- trol and glide in and out of traffic Many times, collisions alter my path; yet I never stop to see if everything is OK The highway is long, with no rest slops, and the traffic never seems to weaken These fires have set off a type ofexplosioninmy mind. They have eluded my every thought. The light which illuminates them has given me the ability to stop and think about my long journey and final destination. For once, 1 see the vic- tims of the accidents of my pasi and the ones who have somehow man- aged lo stay up to speed. It seems like a practical result. Disaster strikes and makes a person realize that hfe takes many swerv- ing turns. However, it's only when that person sits and thinks about those turns when their life begins to take a clear direction. Students, particularly at 1PFW, often get caught up in a bind when trying to manage a job, school and a social life. Sometimes things can become so overbearing that the stu- dent docs not know whether to maintain their responsibilities or their heart. So. eventually, there comes a time when that person has lo let things slip by them. Whether it is the one true love who cannot take the busy schedule. The class that requires too much lime to achieve an adequate grade The pro- motion that makes it necessary for a person to be in the office more but increases their salary. Something is always being passed by. The fires have made me realize that life is too short to worry about the things that have blown by me.

Features Attributed to Louis xtv of France The Communicator Thursday, January 29, 1998 Coliseum infected with Macho Madness, Hulkamania The Tolal Package" Lex Luger puts the rack on Scott Hall during Monday's feature malchup Bv Nol Beckley Editor Monday night. Fort Wayne host- ed the number one wrestling pro- gram on television. They may nol be a big deal to some, but World Championship Wresiiing"s (WCW) Monday NITRO is also one of the highest rated shows on cable. Monday night's show sold more than S 100.000 in ticket sales the first day tickets went on sale. Wrestling has not been this popular since the hey-day of the Rock-n- Wrcstling connection in the 80s. But this resurgence of wrestling is different from 80s according to Bobby 'The Brain" Heenan, former wrestler and manager. Heenan said wrestling's popularity during the 80s was only based on one company that basically dominated the wrestling scene, especially north of the Mason/Dixon line Now there is competition for wrestling's viewers. "[WWF owner) Vincc [McMahon] had no competi- tion," Heenan said. NITRO faces the World Wrestling Federation's RAW every Monday night and for the last two years. NITRO has won the timeslol Heenan, who has been around wrestling since 1965, has watched wrestling and wrestlers evolve since the 60s to today's faster and better condi- tioned wrestlers. Along came cable and the landscape of wrestling changed. Heenan said wrestling was shot for TV on Saturday morning and you spent the rest of the week dri- ving around to different venues "In the early days you ale late and you ate shit," Heenan said Even though Heenan sounds as if he misses those early barnstorm- ing days of wrestling, he said being in wrestling today is great. 'This is the most fun I've ever had in wrestling," Heenan said Much of wrestling revival comes from the president of WCW, Eric Bischoff. "Bischoff he's a genius . . He's like the Donald Trump of wrestling," Heenan said. The style of wresUing shown on TV has changed, Heenan said. Ted Turner, who also owns WCW (along with the rest of the world) wants to see "more family oriented entertain- ment." Heenan look some shots at WCW's main competitor, the WWF and its attempt bring a "reality cle- ment" into wresding. "There is no reason to be lewd. . . Desperate people will do desperate things," Heenan said. Heenan left the nng in 1991 after an incident when he tried to interview Hulk Hogan. According to Heenan, Hogan grabbed him by the neck and aggravated a neck injury that happened in 1983 In 1983. Heenan thought he pinched a nerve in his neck, when in reality his neck was broken. Heenan had some disks from his spine removed to remedy the prob- lem.

Thursday, January 29. 1998 Features The Communicator Modems speed up Mac vs. Windows . . . By Ben Ruble Staff Whiter Do you get tired of all of the wailing of the Internet with your small 14.4 Kbps modem or maybe your 33.6 Kbps modem? Ii can be so slow. The worst part is if you download a large file. It can take several hours depending on the size of the file. The Internet is the frontline of technology. Why is it so slow? Well, somebody is finally going to do something about it. Intel Corp., Microsoft, Compaq Computer Corp. and many oilier major companies are planning on working with telecommunication companies to develop high speed Internet access. This high speed access is called Tl. Tl was developed in the 1980s and there have been many versions available for sev- eral years. But, this generally costs about S2.200 per month. Much of this is because of the exten- sive labor costs for everything that must be installed. The companies working on developing this are hoping to make it very practical and afford- able. They believe that it would cost Internet customers about S40/monlh. For S40/monih, customers would have Tl which can deliver 1.5 million bytes (1 million bytes= 1 megabyte) per second which is approximately 30 times faster than today's fastest modems. What does it mean for us? We are finally going to be able to see the "Teal" Internet. Now. people have to limit the size of each webpage due to slow modems. With Tl, the websites can come alive with Java, Active X, Real Audio. Dynamic HTML, etc. When will Tl be available 1 Ameriiech and GTE plan on offering Tl on a limited basis early this year. It appears within the next year we will see major changes in Internet access and the Internet itself. Z Corner By Ben Ruble Staff Writer There arc many loyal Apple Macintosh users who believe that the Mac is best PC to use. But, then there are the vast majority of com- puter users who use computers with the Windows 95 operating system because they like it. a larger variety of software is available, or they use it just because of the dominance of Micro so fL Whaiever the case, almost every computer prefers one system the other. A rece Family PC magazine designee seven rounds of tests out which system comes out on top in a certain area. The one with the most points would be considered the ■ best sys- tem to use. This sounds like a simple enough of test, right? Below are the results of each round. I won' go into much detail on each round, but I will list their' results. Computers used for this test cost under $2000. Round 1: The Hardware Specs They used a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion to compare against a Power Macintosh 6500/225. Both have similar specs, but the Pavilion has a better modem, larger bard disk, wavetable support in ihe sound sys- tem and a faster CD-ROM. Edge: fdvillwn Round 2, Bundled Software Family PC believes the Mac has a better software bundle than the Pavilion. The Mac came with 31 programs and the Pavilion came with 23. Edge: Macintosh Round 3: The Setup The setup on the Pavilion comes with very little reading for the new ser. The Mae is loaded with things to read. However, the rest of the setup is pretty easy on both machines. Edge: Push Well. Family PC agreed that is easier to use than ihe Windows 95 based Pavilion. 1 have to dis- agree with this statement. I believe Windows 95 just looks complicated because it offers more features. If you ignore the special features, whatever. J Edge: Macintosh «i Round 6: Software Availability What system won? Obviously the Pavilion won this round. However, Family PC did point out that there is almost as much software available for the Macs as for the Windows machines, but retailers carry smaller varieties of Mac software. Edge: Pavillion Round 7; Maintenance Fixing software problems on the Mac is easier than fixing problems on Windows machines. But, if you need maintenance on your Mac. you're likely to spend more. They gave this round to the Mac. I would have called it a tie. Windows machines tend to be cheaper to fix and that is a major plus. Edge: Macintosh The Final Results It is a lie! It is very difficult to choose which system to buy. I would buy a Windows 95 machine any- ,/"■ day Apple may be back to making a profit, but look company in the last few years. For an in-depth version of this analy- is, it is avail- able in the February Family Round 5: Speed The Pavilion used in this test had a 200- Mhz Intel MMX processor. The Mac had a 225-Mhz PowerPC processor. During the speed experiments, the Pavilion won every time. Edge: Pavillion This aru- *• cle was a brief overview of their Macintosh Vs. Windows" tide.

In Hie preseason coaches poll ll'FW was picked to finish fifth in the North Division Even though this is only one place higher than last place it Mill shows some respect. The individual voles showed a greater mark of respect because the Dons not only did- n't get any last place votes but also the preseason favorite to win the division, Lewis University picked the Dons to place third. "We had a ihree-gamc series last season with Lewis thai was as hard fought as I have seen," Vitiorio said "Every game was decided by one run and we came ready to play." Obviously Lewis U was impressed. Some key players that the Dons will be looking to replace are Terry Johnson. Jim Knight and John Cummings. Johnson led me team in several offensive categories and is headed to Arizona this summer to try and play professional baseball in an independent league. Knight hit .323 and was second in doubles, but the loss of his leadership on and off the field will be the hardest to replace Cummings didn't have the greatest numbers but was very consistent and was rewarded for his good play by being drafted by the Tampa Bay Devi trays The players that Vitiorio will be looking for from last year lo lead the team are Danny Mathews (RHP), Jason JafTe (OF), Rico Martin (IF) and Ryan Wallace (IF). Mathews was last year's number one pitcher with a solid 90 mph fastball Jaffe had 10 homeruns and led the team in Runs Batted in. Martin had II homeruns but is nursing a serious knee injury from this fall and Vitiorio doesn't know whether he will be 100 percent at the start of the season. Wallace "is one of the most consistent players lhat I have ever coached and coaches are comfortable with consistency because you don't gel a surprise that is neg- ative," said Vitiorio. Last year's team was very explosive offensively. The big inning was the Don's bread and butler, but Vntorio doesn't feel comfortable in winning this way. "Big inning (earns are lough to coach because you don't know when the inning is going to come around. We showed ihis type of offense in the fall season bul I will try to get a more consistent type of offense this spring." Vitiorio said. Last year's team hit .320 and had 46 homeruns, but the pitching staff allowed 47 homeruns and was Ihe Dons nemesis last year. The combined youth and lack of experience sorely hurt Ihe learn down the stretch. To stabilize the pitching staff three junior college transfers were brought in to help: Curtis Wagers (RHP) and Keith Weaver (LHP) from Danville Community College and Michael Scroggs (LHP) from Lincoln Trail Community College. Other players lhat are going lo be counted on to make significant contributions are Bill Seagerman (IF) from Olympic Junior College, Brad Smock (C/OF) from Carroll High School and Evan Glassley (IF) from Concordia High School Instead of resting on last year's success the Dons will have their work cut out for them with five opponents in the preseason Top 30. The Dons make a inp to North Alabama and these first games will be very important on how ihe season goes. "1PFW baseball isn't a fluke anymore," said Vmorio. "You had better strap your shoes on and gel afler it because I know my team has " Energetic? Friendly? Enjoy Crowds? BECOME PART OF THE TEAM!
