How would the two-way communica- 
tion with other colleges be beneficial to 
students and/or faculty? 

"If there are programs that we can't offer 
because of low enrollment, we can match up 
with other low -enrollment colleges so com-

they couki take it here for

be at another site ... Some 
other kinds of things that 
we're looking at is using the 
itelwork for our Nursmg 

"We could have a setup 
for a laboratory experitmce 
in the ho^ital but students 
can be here on campus domg 
that experiment, asking 
questions while it's being 
conducted. Travel time 
would be limited yet they 
would have the same kmd of 
leammg tipportunity they'd 
have if they were at the hos- 

On future building pn- 
jects and mvovations: 

"We have appnwed. at 
the Illinois Communiiv 
College board, a multipur 
pose facility which would be 
include a performing arts 
center, conlerence rooms, 
mtiltlmedia facilities, some 
ofike space and classrooms- 
tttal will be the next facility 
to come cmline. We wen- 
hoping the legislatuie would 
approve fxinding for it dur- 
ing this legislative Msiuon. 
but they did not. so we're 

gt>mg to have to work with 
our legislators and the gov- 
ernor to see if we can get the 
funding in the next seasian. 

Are there any major 
projects that will be started 
during this next school year 
or mainly finishing up 
existing projects? 

"Next spnng or summer, 
we re gcnng to be working 
on Buildmg I to consolidate 
the computer labs into tme 
long space on the second 
fltxjT , It's easier to monitor 
that way. moiv cost-effective 
and should provick" students 
with more open lab time. 

"There's addihonol road 
work off of Algonquin Road 
and Farkmg lot Two that 
will also be started Dunng 
the s«:hix>l year, we will be 
finishing up of Kuilding F. 

Are there any function- 
al changes in the upgrading 
of Building F or is it strictly 

"There are certainly 
functional changes. We're 
tTMng to take advantage of 
computer capabikties more 
than m the past, we'ie recog- 
nizing changes in instruc- 
tional design and the future 

support that media semces 
IS trying to pnmde for stu- 
dents and faculty." 

A lot of people have 
commented that the school 
seems to be trying to cater 
more towards transfer stu- 
dents, leaving continuing 
education and/or certificate 
programs lacking. How do 
you see this? 

"I don't thmk we do 1 
think we certainly have (o 
roci>gni/c that the communi- 
ty uf sc'r\ i» a lot of inter- 
est m thf tour war graduate 
degret- I think we do have a 
focus on that hut I dt>n t 
think it's out of proptirtion (o 
our interest in providing 
technical career programs or 
continuing education pro- 

"We'ie not trying to play 
any one program down. In 
fact, with the development 
of our health services divi- 
sion four years ago. we real- 
ly put more emphasis on 
continuing educahon, non- 
credit oppt>rtunities for the 
corporate swctor We recog- 
nize that we don't imly serve 
the 18. 14 and 20 year-old 
student, that we serve a wide 
variety of ages and mterests 

m higher education. 

Is there a plan to con- 
nect the buildings? 

"The master plan 
designed by the primary 
architect that started the 
campus showed some of the 
buildings connected but if 
vva.s nev er intended for all of 
thorn to be 

"When Building I was 
to be done, the architect was 
very creative in seeing a v.a\ 
to connect the library and 
Building P Whether we'll be 
able to go further with it. 1 do 
not know Its a possibility 
but It would be several years 
off " 

Is there any reason the 
parking lots are built so far 
away from the buildings? 

"I think a little green- 
space IS appreciated when 
you're sithng in a classroom. 
You don't want to kxik out a 
wmdow and see the glare off 
a windshield. Secondly, I 
think Its all m the perspec- 
tive of where you're parking. 
If yi>u go to a university, 
parking is miles from the 
center of campus But it is a 

In closin(t another hot 
topic is the rising price of 
tuition. Is this something 
the school anticipated or 
that the government decid- 
ed on? 

"It's been a gradual 
change The school board 
divided about five years ago 
that, as a target, they would 
like to see student tuition 
represent about 20^. of the 
school's operating costs. 
We've been under that, at 
about 17*>o, but the mcreases 
will bring us up to our target 
r.uige. In terms of a long- 
range plan in how we're 
going to fund this institu- 
tion, I don't thmk the 
increase has been that exor- 
bitant. We've seen the state 
government cut back it's per- 
centage on higher educabon 
fundmg- that trend is clear 
In order to make that up, you 
cut costs wherever you can, 
you look at what n-venue 
you can generate from your 
Icxal tax base, and you need 
to Kxjk at tuition as ttie other 
piece. I think we're trymg to 
be reasonable in what we do. 
what we expect from our 
Uxal taxpayers, as well as 
what we expect from our 
local students.

Busin4~»s has btwn slow 
since the slore'* opening, 
according to i.,\^k' Vice 
Prwidenl Andy Calatte. 
However, there is litle fear 
simplv because Eagle has no 
plans to t.ike over the market 
"We don't need a lot of 
lustomers,™ Galatte •^aid 
"We re |ust happy to gel 500 
or 1,()IK) students." 

(iagle Texttxxik's focus is 
selling used Ixxiks at the low- 
est possible price, which, 
because of low overhead — 
the store layout UkiLs more 
warehouse-like than the on- 
campus location and only 
employs five people at peak 
wiling season— IS often the 
case. Eagle's policy is to meet 
or beat any price from 
Harper s bookstore on the 
pnxlucts they carry. 

Calatte said if each Harper 
student purchases )ust one 
book fn>m his store each 
semester. Eagle can continue 
to operate, all the while keep- 
ing Harper's bookstore man- 
agement eyes open. 

"As long as we're there, 
well ahvays keep the campus

has plans to stick around for

'At Harper, they'll only 
buy back so manv copies." 
WaLsh explameti. "There are 
some books we buy 30() 
copies of (where) they only 
buy back 20 " 

Rich Seller, manager of 
Harper's on<ampus book- 
store, said he is not concerned 
about Eagle Textbook's pre- 

"A competitive bookstore 
never hurts the situation," 
said Seller. "We operate m the 
same manner as we did 
before they got here." 

Seller said tfiere is little 
Harper's bookstore can do to 
lower pnces, explammg that 
an mdependent survey 
showed Harper's prices to be 
lower than approximately 
three-fourths of campus 
bookstores on both state and 
national levels.

"I don't know what they 
pay for their books ... but if 
they're paying the same 
prices we are, they can't stay 
in business too long," Seller 
explamed. "They can't keep 
their stockholders too 

Both Galatte and Seller 
encourage students to shop 
around for the best price. 
However, Seller points out 
money sfient at Harper's

into die college. 

Seller said he truly 
believes the two bookstores 
can both operate ... if they 
stay honest. 

"As long as business is 
straight up and as long as 
they follow general ethical 
procedures, (we can both 
exist)," he coiKluded. "In

Highlights of the disc included

Our View j Time to say 'good-bye' 

Another new semester is before 
us, and with it, all the ups, 
downs, anxiety attacks and 
homework that goes with it. 

Whether you're a new student trying 
to find your way to your classes or a 
returning student trying to figure out 
where the perimeter road went, you're 
be pleased to know that you are at one 
of the finest community colleges in the 
state, if not the country. This is a school 
that is rich with excitement, diversity 
and action. A highly-trained faculty and 
staff are here to instruct and assist you. 
Clubs and organizations meeting dozens 
of interest.'^ provide an intinito amount 
of activities. A 150,000-plus \ olume 
library offers row upon row of informa- 
tion. And a food ser\ iti> crew is work- 
ing to make the cafeteria the best it's 
ever been. 

Several projects were completed 
throughout campus over the summer A 
new, remodeled library will open in 
Building F. Parking Lots I and 12 were 
repaved and re-striped for easier access 
to the buildings. The perimeter road bv 
Lot 1 has been moved in for the upcom- 
ing widening of Algonquin Road. 

For those of you with Internet access, 
Harper can t>e reached via 

The only constant here is change. 
New things are happening every day, 
and the only way to find out about it is 
to become involved in your school. Take 
some time to explore all of the options 
available to you at the various student 
centers. The Student Activities office in 
Building A is a good place to start. 

Get involved. It's vour school!

AAE EditOf 

One thing I have wanted 
lo do IS to come up with a 
mission statement for what I 
would like to see m the Arts 
and Entertainment sechon 
this semester coming up. 

I was the AAt editor last 
semester, am) what a semes- 
ter It was! I t«>k on the ptwi- 
tiiTo with little hands-on 
experience (1 had written 
cvactlv one artwle for the 
paper up to that pcimt), and 
It has been a phenomenal 
experience for me 

In one semester 1«\t 
how to make publicists listen 
to me (that »n't alwavs easv. 
either), how to btxik mter 
Views and even get to meet 
with people such as James 
Young and They Might Be 
Giants, how to conduct the 
mterviews. how to write 
about music and muMCiaivs, 
how to review a concert, and 

finally how to lay out the 
paper. Our layout night 
gives new meaning to the 
Sidney Sheldon title 

.VlfrriiTri-s <•» .Vluinij^'ll — how 
quickly midnight comes and 
goes when we spend hours 
on end trying to come out 
with a finished paper for 
your reading pleasure- 
Not only have 1 gotten a 
lot of practical experience, 
but also much personal 
growth I h<ivt' gaintxl confi- 
dence in my work, which is 
not easv to do somctunes 
There i> nothing like the tee! 
ing of getting a call tnim a 
band's publicist saymg 
"thanks for the article^ the 
band loved ii;" That fivling 
IS especially strong when 1 
n-cetve a phiwe call from the 
.(:• ■ -aving 

I!. '.to them 

!. ,ue pub- 

Ir- -.dc 

aftet-siiow passes i 

Writing lor The ffiirfintjriT 
has als*,) been an invaluable 
profeitsiDnal expenence for 
me— because of my experi- 

ence here 1 have developed a 
workmg relatK>nship with 
ShmiKafe Chicujtu maga/me 
as a contributing wnler (1 
usually try to Slav away 
from shameless plugs, but 
the August Lssue featuies 
Zippcthead, a really cool 
local band, and it's free!) 

Oiu- thing 1 would like to 
do in the semester to come is 
feature some music reviews 
of kxal bands .\nvone who 
has a CD or cassette they 
would like tv> submit may 
drop it off m my mailbox at 
the Hiirtw^c! olfice I wi-^ulil 
like to trv >iiui run as many 
rev lews .is I I would bke 
to continue to bnng inter 
views and concert rev lews to 
our campus, but 
there is s>' milk; 
that we can't possibiv sov er 
everything. Suggestions are 
alwavs welcome as to what 
vou woulil like to see tov- 
erevl in ;\ ■- ilwavs

Our View 

$3.5 million: It's 
money well spent! 

There was a lot of things Harper could 
have done with $3.5 million. How would a 
cut in the bookstore prices sound? Maybe 
less expensive cafeteria food. Or maybe a 
tuition rebate! Valet parking in Parking Lot 
One nught not be so bad, either. 

How about a renovated Learning 
Resource Center? 

That place that is known to commonfolk 
as the library underwent a significant reno- 
vation over the summer. What used to be 
worn-out carpet and bad lighting is now a 
state-of-the-art learning facility New fea- 
tures, such as multimedia-capable comput- 
ers, a bibliographic instruction Rx)m, 
expanded circulation, and more space 
enable the L.R.C. to meet the needs of stu- 
dents and faculty for the next several years. 

If you haven't visited the L R.C. lately 
stop by and take a Icwk. You'll find a styl- 
ish facility and professional staff read\' to 
cater to your learning needs. This is your 
tuition and taxes working for you— stop by 
and check it out! 

Not a bad return on a sizable investment, 
is it? 

THE ED'S VIEW /on O'Bru-r,. Uitor-m-Chiff 

Same to you, ya' idiot!! 

The ottiCT day my girl- 
fiimd was telling me of an 
mcideni she had at work 
that made me think hand 
alxnit how we treat some 

A young family walked 
out on a sizable check at 
Ruby Tuesday restaurant at 
Woodfield Mall The catch 
was they forgot their keys at 
the Uble They had the 
nerve to go back to get their 
keys and still not pay the 
ct>eck! They claimed that 
they waited 45 minutes for 
their check. The manage- 
ment apologized and let 
them go (and, no, they did- 
n't leave a tip). 

I was outraged. Why 
would a manager let a herd 
of white trash scum bags 
walk out on a check? I 
would have been dangling 
those keys over their heads 
on a stick until the mill 
.security team came to haul 
them away had I been that 

Contnm' to some peo- 
ple's opinions. [ beliovo that 

we sh<iuld try to be fxjiite 
and courteous lo those who 
deserve it I also believe that 
those who annoy me 
deserx'e whatever hell I 
unleash upon them (Yes, 
this is a rather twisted inter- 
pretation of the "Golden 

You could say that it's 
bad public relations for an 
establishment — be it restau- 
rant or otherwise— to treat 
customers poorly, even if 
Ihey deserve it. Well, what 
makes the treatment poor? 
I wouldn't want a clan of 
dishonest pec^le coming 
back to my business if I 
caught them once. Don't get 
me wrong— I believe every- 
one should get a fair chance. 
But if they're going out of 
their way to screw you over, 
that treatment that was con- 
sidered poor is now, in my 
humble opinion, jastified. 

Are you one of those 
people who feel that you are 
entitled to special treatment 
at the expense of others? 
Do you feel that yelling, 
screaming and walking on 
people is the best way to gel 
what you want? I've got a 
question for you: why? 
VVhtTf do you gel off rais- 

ing hell and making my life 
miserable? I've got news 
for you: threatening a law- 
suit every time you spill 
your coffee isn't the way to 
expedite service! If you'd 
take tfie time to rest your 
vocal chords between your 
wild bursts of unbridled 
bitching and attempt to 
work with this hell-spawn 
in front of you, knovtm to 
most as the clerk, you might 
actually get something done 
without raising your blood 
pressure to new highs. 

The next time you're in a 
sitiiation ttiat goes awry, 
take some time to bite your 
lip (and think things out). 
Not everyone is out to con 
you. And if you're thinking 
of corming someone else, 
don't expect them to t>e nice

Cleaning Ladys: 'We want the airwaves'

It sounds liluF Spinal Tip 
revisited, a party gone 
completely crazy. The 
theme song ends, and sud- 
denly the four hosts are all 
yammering at once. 

"Another Who reissue!" 
Art screams out of nowhere 
"1 swear, there are ten tunes 
as many Who compilations 
out there as there were origi- 
nal albums!" 

"Oh, God, he's ragging 
on Townshend again!' says 
Dan. "Give Pete a break! His 
ears are still ringing; he

The Cleaning Ladys, four 
Chicago music scene \feter- 
ans, are about to pull off 
what they have more or less 
avoided doing for nearly two 
decades, they're going to get 
in your face! 

The band contisis of fohn

into the party — sometimes 
harmoniously, sometimes 
not. ("And sometimes the 
police show up," adds Scott.) 

Their music-talk radio 
show, Ntfdle Dmp, is part 
Spinal Tap nin amok (except 
that the hosts are in on the 
joke), and part Steve Dahl- 
meets-Sisket and Ebert. 
Much Uke in Woynr's WorU, 
four frustrated artists get to 
hurl their mayhem over an 
unsuspecting Chicago area— 
their own way. 

"First and fbinmnt, we're 
rock musk fans," explains 
John. "Wr came up in the 
daaiic era, which our critical 
penpective reflects, in that 
we like our songs well-struc- 
tured and imaginative and 
energetic and rebellious." 

Vital Stats

On the air ... 

One can only begin to 
fathom the hosts' amuse- 
ment over their own show 
topics During a past seg- 
ment, entitled 'Dare to 
Compare", they invited 
callers to banter about the 
obvious goings-on at other 
statioas (Pearl Jam on QlOl, 
The Real McCoy on B%), 
cheek out their forecasts, and 

then call back to gloat about 
how correct they were. 
Another show, dubbed 
"Beatles vs Cleaning 
Ladys", was an all-out battle 
of the bands: one Beatles 
song (usually a weak song) 
played, followed by one 
Ladys number The listeners 
called and voted, sometimes 
yielding to and sometimes 
resisting, intimidation by the 
hosts (The Cleaning Ladys 
won by one vote — never 
mind that the janitor wan- 
dering through the aban- 
doned warehouse was 
prompted to vote "Cleaning 
Ladys" in a not-so-subtle 

Sometimes they do live 
interviews on the show. 
During a phone-in segment 
with Dweezil and Ahmet 
Zappa, lallers won ft«; con- 
cert tickets by suggesting 
names for Dweezil's kids. 
(Among the more notable 
names suggested by callers

Allison. and Matthew 

"This is the only show 
that promises vou miisir but 
delivers conversation," 

quips Scott at the bt>ginning 
of every show They 
announce the evening's con- 
test — lislaiers are mvited to 
call in and contribute to the 
topic, and their names will 
be entered into a drawing for 
one of two free compact 
discs to be given away every 
show. Tonight's theme, in 

Expand Your 

observance of Independence 
Day, IS "Americans vs 
British'— riHk artists, that is 

"Irish," says the first 
caller, obviously aware of the 
show's irreverent anarchy 
She then supports her posi- 
tion by citmg The Drovers, 
The Chieftains, and Van 

"Great." John changes the 
flow of conversation. "So, 
what are your plans this 
evening — fireworks??" 

"I could tell you, but then 
I'd have to kill you," the girl 
responds, and the hosts 
crack up 

Then & Now 

The Cleaning Ladys' 
radio show is just the latest 
in a string of triumphs 
stretching back to the band's 
evolution in 1978, when they 
first began gigging and 
recording together When 
M"rV came along, the video 
for "She Won t French Kiss" 
received prominent airing, 
winning a Monitor award 
over the likes of Dire Straits, 
Yes, and Don Henley. 

"So we sat down one 
day," explains Dan, "and 
decided that if you can have 
two /illion 24-hour-j-dayall- 
spcirts talk shows, there's got 
to be an audience for good 
music talk as well " 

Withour a doubt- the 
NefJte Drop caller response 
provides plenty of affirma- 
tion. For the duration of the 
show, the phone lines stay 
iammed with callers ranging 
from fifteen year-old mosh- 
mongers to fifty-year-old 
Elvis fans. 

John shrugs "We thought 
that the reason we hadn't 
made it was that we needed 
better hair, when all we real- 
ly needed was a transmitter 
and 3500 watts!" 

Who would have known?

Sixty-five cents 
for pop? Are 
you crazy?! 

It seems that Astro Vending, Inc., in its 
infinite wisdom, decided that screwing 
over students and faculty by charging 
them $.60 for pop wasn't enough. Nope, 
they had to bump the price another 
nickel to $.65. And to add insult to 
injury, service is not expected to 

This leaves a bad taste in my mouth. 
Why must Astro continue to charge its 
rip-off prices to students and get away 
with it? Everyone know that a can of 
soda should be $.50, and not a penny (or 
three nickels) more. 

Has the forces that be at Harper ever 
corviidered allowing more than one 
vending company to serve us? Two 
companies competing for your pocket 
change would get that price down real 

For more immediate results, protest 
the increase by bringing your own pop 
from home. If you have access to a 
refridgerator, chill a 24-pack. Chances 
are it will be colder and more refreshing 
than the vending machines anyway. 
And think of all that change you'll be 

For an institution representing over 
25,000 people, there is no excuse for 
Harper not having some leverage in the 
prices for pop. 

We now return you to your regularly 
scheduled thirst-querKhing. 

Parents: Turn the channel 

Jon 0'M«n, The Ed s View 

I've received several mes- 
•Miges in vanous fomw from 
people all over campus about 
my column on parents watch- 
ing their children 
Unfortunately the battle 
doesn't stop at the Internet 
Television and radio have 
been under fire for a lot 
longer What I find amusing 
IS the reasoas for it .ire so are 
utterly stupid 

It's mere couKideive that 
this iust happens to concern 
another lawsuit where a fami- 
ly is fUmg suit with another 
information provider — in 
this case, a family vs MTV It 
seems that Beavis and Butt- 
head taught their children 
about fire fire' FIRE" (oh, 
excuse me) Or so they claim 
What I find funny is how 
they failed to demonstrate 
how this learning expenence 
took place The mtelligence 
uaed lo arrive at this corKlu- 

sion makes the O J Simpson 
tnal look appealing agam 

Why is the current genera- 
tion of children so susceptive 
of becoming corrupted by 
television than pre%nou8 gen- 
erations' My childhood car- 
toon days ended m the early 
■80s and somehow I came out 
normal 1 didn't hear about 
any kids who hit each with 
hammers to see if little 
birdies flew m circles around 
their heads like on Woody 
Wotxlpecker 1 didn't fwl anv 
urges to run my cat over to 
see if he magically re-inflatet1 
like on Tom and Jerry To this 
day, Beavis and Butt-head 
don't give me an unam- 
troUed desire to suck on a 
toad to get a bun or inarch 
around school l«iking for 
"teepee for my bimghole" 

Comedian Oorge Carlin 
once talked about a priest in 
the south that tned to get the 
government to place further 
restrictions on television and 
radio conunurucation Even 
today, James Exon (remember 
my first article?) seems to 

think the words "unless you 
use a computer" come after 
the First Amendment 
Carlin's suggestion to the 
priest was simple change the 
channel! I don't need some- 
body else's parents telling me 
what I can and cannot watch 
Carlin may be a comedian 
but his routine held a kit of 
truth in it 

As Americans, we have 
more choices than any other 
people on earth Don't try to 
limit those choices for e\ eT\ 
one. show those who are 
uiienlishtened how to use 
those choices to their advan- 
tage Quit 't(Hilproofing" 
everything and let them fig-

The Harper College lootbiill 
team will b«; celebrating ils 
25th Anniversary' with a 
special ceremony during the 
Seph»mb«?r 16 game against Grand 
Ki, '- Harper College history 
will be made that night and it 
would spectacular to have a 
standing loom only crowd for the 

Coach J(jhn Eliasik created the 
football program during the sum- 
mer of 1971 and has buil it into .ui 
outstanding program. Eliasik s 
teams have produced 39 AU- 
Amehcans. In 1973, only the third 
season, Ervin Kimbrough became 
liie Hatvks' first All-American. 

Eliaalk is now the winningest 
active commurut\- college head 
coach in the country Harper's 
football teams have won numer- 
ous conference titks with trips to 
several bcnwl games. 

Harper's football team has 
brought a great deal of honor and 

glory to our school over the paSl 
quarter of a centuiy. 1 believe that 
ttw students, of Harper College 
have a responsibility to show their 
appreciation to ail of those who 
ha%'e worked aiul played for the 
football program in the last 25 

Last week a friend of mine 
questMined me as to why commu- 
nity college sp<irts aren't as big as 
they are in the high schools and 
universities. I couldn't aaswer 
him. Where I come from in 
California, community college 
sports draw big crowds. 
California's community colleges 
are commuter colleges ju-st like 

Change is the battlecry of the 
'90i. I think that it is time that we 
change the face of Harper College 
sports by filling the seals at every

The Volleyball team opened 
confen-ncf play St-plcmber 
12th against Jolift in the 
Harper gymnasium. 

Haipcr started nut strv»ng by tak- 
ing the first game, but lost the next 
three. 'We were close in the second 
and third games," Shannon Hill 
said. "The last game we weren't real- 
ly focused,' she said. 

The loss followed a successful 
weekend as the volleyball team 
defeated fudsiw and South 
Suburban They also have fallen in 
matches at home against Highland 
and on the road against Morame 

Valley and St. FrancLs. 

Coach fudy Steinbeck is opti- 
mi.<.tic aK)ut this year's team and 
hopes that the team can improve 
upon the gotxl record that ttiev had 
in 1994. 

"Last season we were living on 
the edge because we only had six 
players," Steinbeck said. Six players 
are required to play m onler to pre- 
vent a forfeit, 

"If one girl was in|ured or got 
sick, we were in trtnible," Steinbeck 
recounted. 'Thank gixKlness we 
have eight players thus year." 

Hill observes, "We need to come ■ 
together as a team and push for a 

Athlete of the Week 

Each week the W^Uness and 
Human PerformaiKe Division

The Harbmger is proud to fea-

President Thompson elected to community college board 



Harper's Presidenl 
Paul Thompson 
recently was elected 
to th<? American Association 
of Community College Board 
of Directors. 

President of the United 
States Bill Clinton, the fea- 
tured speaker at the 75th 
AACC convention in 
Minneapolis, Minnesota, 
congratulated all of the 
newly elected board mem- 

Clinton spoke to a crowd 
t>t nearly 22tX) participants 
involved in the community 
college movement. 

Organized in 1920, the 
AACC IS a natioful organiza- 
tion that consists of 1100 two- 
year institutions. 

"One of the AACC's 
goals IS to get a better under- 
standing of public contribu- 
tions and where those contri- 
butions go," Thompson said.

along with the AACC and

Association for Community

Joint Commis.sion on Federal 

"We have an interest in all 
community colleges to get 
help from Federal 
Legislation, and maybe that 
will be effected close to 
homo, here at Harper," 
Thompson said. 

Thompson will also be a 
contact for the Instructional 
Telecommunications Council. 
The Instructional Telecom- 
munications Council is 
important to Thompson since 
Harper has joined with other 
regional colleges to provide 
distance learning. 

"Here we need better 
research. It will help stu- 
dents, in the placement jobs 
and m the placement of other 
schools, when they go to 
transfer," Thompson said. 

He emphaised that not 
too many things have been 
well documented to this 
point, but a change is 

Haqjer just might be closer to managing 
the ongoing geese problem. Some of the 
proposals aren't what you'd call typical 
but two other possibilities are already 
swimming in the pond. Page 3

Professor Hull attends U.N. World 
Conference on Women in China 

Julie ThoinpMn 


Professor Elizabeth Hull 
recently returned from 
the U.N. World 
Conference on Women in 
Beijing, China. 

Coincidentally, an invita- 
tion to speak at the People to 
People Ambassador Program 
for a US joint confereiwe on 
women's issues brought Hull 
to China a week before the 
UN c<mference. 

"This is my fourth trip to 
China, and each time 1 go 
somethmg gmxl comes out of 
-! i iiili -..iij "1 like to think 
-tit as .1 tondiiie tor 
people to meet (H-.iple ' 

■■VVomcn around the 
'•■. : - ' i are nenerallv the 
-.iiru >he said, "we all say 
we are tor equalitv, vet we 
don't have it 

One of the high points of 
Hull's trip was listening to 
Hillarv Rodham-Clinton 

"It was wonderful. She 
spoke about things any gcHxi 
willed person vvould agree 
with, like caring (or the 
young and the elderly." 

Hull listened as women 
spoke about how they are 

Piolessoi Hull's highlight of her trip was to attend a speoctt 
gh/en by flrtt tody HHtory Rodhofn-CHnton. 

Pnoto t'-v Soson Rodamocher 

regarded as property in main 
countries- She heard ^t.iru's 
of violence and abuse 

"One woman was raped 
in Bosnia hv soldiers while 
her husband and children 
watched " she said "Too 
often women are treated as 
sex objects." 

Hull is an advocate of 
educahng women, ^w wants 

women to read about other 
vv.ns to live hopefully induc- 
ing changes for the better 

"The most important 
thing to come out of the con- 
ference for me was the 
opportunity to network with 
people from all over the 
world." Hull said. "I'm get- 
ting e-mail from as far away 
as New Zealand."

A recent Friday 
afternoon head 
count revealed 
thai (here are more 
geese on campus than 
students. So how do 
we control the growing 
gaggle of geese? 

Director of Physical 
Plant, Bob Geotz said, 
"The geese are definite- 
ly becoming a problem 
because moie and more 
of them come back 
every year to breed 
where they are bom." 

Coetz said the 
Harper board of 
trustees has been dis- 
cussing ways to control 
the geese. 

"One idea men- 
tioned was to trap the 
geese, send them to a 
food processing plant 
and offer them as an 
alternative fixxi source 

to food pantries," he 

Stressing that it was- 
n't his idea to eat the 
geese, Goetz explained, 
"I don't think there's 
anything wrong with it, 
just compare it to eating 

If eating the geese 
doesn't appeal to you, 
the board of trustees 
has considered another 
alternative: swan 

For under a mere 
$4000 Harper college 
could purchase a pair of 
geese wrangling swans. 
Midge Flemmmg-lhrig, 
swan care project man- 
ager at Dr. Churches 
landscaping said they 
have been selling and 
leasing swans since 

Ihrig sdid swans are 
very territorial, espe- 
cially when they are 
nesting. They will pro- 

tect their offspring from 
any predators by chas- 
ing them away. 

"Even though swans 
are a good way to con- 
trol the geese, we use 
them for other reasons 
too" Ihrig said. "They 
can be used to eat 
aquatic algae, lessening 
the need for pesticides." 

Although swans 
could do a lot of good 
for the campus, Ckietz is 
still hesitant about tak- 
ing the money out of 
his budget. "There's no 
guarantee that the 
swans will work," he 

As tar as guarantees 
go, notiiing is for sure. 
We plant trees and can 
only hope they grow. 
Lets buy some swans, 
and hope we've all 
been chased by our last 
nasty goose.

rhf scene outside the 
door waiting lo get in was 
something else entirely- 
Jame- '" ' -ing (former 
Styx ,, .ra-ntly pur- 

suing othe: [■•ro|ects includ- 
ing the lames Young Croup) 
was there along with a few 
other people from 

Whitehouse Records to see 
7th Heaven, one of the open- 
ing bands, perform. 

Warrant has been on the 
road for about the past rune 
months and they have a new 
album. (JItraphobic, now 
available in record stores 

Jerry Dixon gave a brief 
rundown of the band: "Did 
three records, )ani quit the 
band, and then our manager 
died, and then we filed for 
bankruptcy, and then Jani 
came back into the band, we 
got with the new label CMC, 
and then our fourth record, 
(JItraphobic- we've been 
together about ten years 

Warrant has gone through 
a lot of changes over the past 
few years with lineup and 
everything else- musically 
they have progressed a long 
way to a more mature men- 
tality, evident on their last 
two albums. '1993 was a 
black year for the band. . 
Dog Eat Dog was a pretty 
dark record", said Dixon. 
"When we first started out, 
all we know hmv to do was 
screw girls and drink 1 was 
still in high schiHil, I'd never 
been out of California 
before... I think the records 
kind of got a lot more 
mature, they've not only pro- 
gressed Ivrically, but also 
rniisicallv We lixik back- we 
had a bell i>t a lime, but we 
progressed As you get 
older vou toou> more on why 
you're here, why you're 
doing this, and you come out 
of that little rock star haze... 
you come back to reality and 
at this point you have to be 
in it for the music, not the 
rrtoneN' " 

Dixon expressed regret at 
the fact that people seem to 
not buy as many of their 
records these days: "I don't 
think we're that far off from 
what everyone else is doing... 
1 think if more people had 
heard the last record (Dog 
Eat Dog) they might under- 
stand the new one a little bit 
better." Jani Lane was a guest 
on Mancow Muller's morn- 
ing show the morning that 
they played at Toto's, and 
Mancow definitely felt the 
heat (and spent some time 
dissing them) after Jani Lane 

hung up on him. "Mancow 
|u-.t went, 'we're goin^ to 
play some grunge now and 
not Warrant so listen to this.' 
and Jani went 'hey, lislen to 
this and hung up on him on 
the air'" Dixon said of shixk 
radio, "pt»ople get an the air 
and say stuff, and you're 
expected to go '1 can't believe 
they said that!'" 

l-ane got into the Mancow 
war onstage later that 
evening as well- in between 
songs he (deservingly, and to 
the cheering of the crowd) 
called Mancow some things 
which are unfit for print. 
Warrant put on an excellent 
show at Toto's. From their 
new songs such as "J-iigh", 
"Stronger Now", and 
"Family Picnic" to old 
favorites such as "Cherry 
Pie", "D.R.FS.R', and "Unck 
Tom's Cabin", the audience 
was in for one hell of a good 

Lane puts on not just a 
show, but a party for his fans: 
as he put it onstage, "You all 
paid fifteen bucks for your 
hckets, so for all of you that 
paid, you're not leaving and 
we're not leaving until you 
get every penny's worth!" 
Many rcxrk bands play for as 
little time as possible (who 
cares, we \e got your 
money), but for Warrant, per- 
forming brings such a high 
that the\ have been known 
to play three or four hour 
shows of late 

The band interacts pro- 
fusely with the audience. 
Lane has been known to dive 
into the audience with no 
warning whatsoever, and 
occasionally he douses the 
audience with beer. They 
also encouraged a sing-along 
with audience members dur- 
ing a cover of "Tequila" 
(which they also declared the 
national anthem- hell, it's a 
lot easier to remember all the 

They later played an 
acoustic --et which included 
"Blind Faith ■. "Heaven", and 
"1 Saw Red" Warrant puts 
on one of the best acoustic 
sets 1 have ever seen As a 
matter of fact, the whole 
.show totally rocked. As for 
the guys, they want their 
fans to know that they're still 
out there working and play- 
ing music, and they should 
have another album out 
before very long In the 
meantime, check out 
Ultraphobic- now available 
as a domestic in most record 
stores. And check out 
Warrant live the next time 
they come to town. Even if 
you're not a big Warrant fan, 
this is one live show that you 
won't want to miss!

BALLBREAKER: Bon Scott would role in his grave 


Staff Writer 

Bi.n Soft It lie were still 
dhv e, he v\ mild hai e 
sang this album and 
made it tc-n times tetter than 
It is with Brian Johnson 

Ballbreaker AC DC s 
long anticipated epiKigue to 
Razor's Edge, is anything but 
hard as a rock lastead, it is j 
return to the days of 
"Soulslripper" and "Sin 
( ;•>, .\itiT two decades of 

>. e drunkenness and 

.irug use. It seems the awe- 
some Aussies have finally 
learned to play. 

There are more harmo- 
nious scale-style riffs sprin- 
kled all over Ballbreaker, 
and a very dedicated down- 
home blues overtone. There 

are many contrasts between 
Razor's Edge and 

Ballbreaker, among the most 
signlfKant is Ballbreakers 
obviiuis Luk of a good mix 

Tlie guitars are lost in the 
drums, the guitars have no 
sustain, solo's are picked 
with all downstrums, remi- 
niscent of Angus early scilos 
(while intoxicated), and the 
ommitance of reverb, which 
to most recording musiciaiw 
IS mandatory, even if only on 
the vocals. 

However, Brian Johnson's 
clarity and overall vocal pre- 
sentation has improved 500"-<. 
over both Razor and Live. 
Most songs can be under- 
stood now without having to 
read the Lyrics. Alttiough, he 
deviates NOT from the com- 

fortable confines of cliche's, 
songs such as "The Furor"," 
Hail Caesar", And even 
"1 ove Bomb" have nooo, 
this cant be' . IXILITICAL 
MESSAGES!! Definitely new 
ground for AC /DC 

But don't be discouraged 
Ballbreaker is a fine example 
of "what might've been" had 
Bon Scott known when to say 
when Not what you'd 
expect from the down-under, 
thunderstruck, multi-plat- 
inum icons, but it'll do. 

Flo's Faves: "Boogie 
Man", and "Whiskey on the 
Rixks " (an instant pub fave). 

Ballbreaker will also be fea- 
tured in an upcoming 
Harbinger special "The worst 
10 albums cf 1995".

Our View 

This apathy thing 
is contageous! 

What else is new. The Student Senate 
Elections passed with another poor turn 
out at the ballot box. Only a total of 13 
ballots were tallied. 

The election needs to be publicized 
extensively to get voters out. If a quick 
poll on campus was taken, most students 
would say, "When was this so called elec- 

Another draw back is that nobody tells 
prospective voters that they need their 
student activity cards to vote. Believe it or 
not the school is afraid that students may 
vote more than once. 

This is one case where it really doesn't 
appear to be a cause for concern. 

However, recently this t> pe of turn out 
isn't only at the ballot box for Student 

Da\ s pass before anyone is seen going 
in and out of the Senate office. Are they 
required to post office hours? 

Mi'st all organizations here are required 
to ha\ f them posted outside their dix>r, 
what's with the special treatment. 

The answers to some of these problems 
could be answered closer to home, it any- 
one was home. 

To be a strong organization they must 
have some form of unity, be willing to 
spend time at it and take pride in what 
they do and what they stand for. 

If Student Senate wants students to care 
about them, maybe they should care 
about Student Senate first. Believe it or 
not being in the office during the week is 
a good start. 

Could there problems on the horizon 
for this student activitv?

Election: Powell deserves the Presidency... 
but does the Presidency deserve him? 

JonOlrt«n Editor-m-CNef 

Unless youTw been living 
under a rock lately or com- 
pletely engrcwsing yourself in 
the O I- Simpson trial, you're 
prettv aware of Colin Powell's 
mfluence on the presidential 
election nent year His media 
image is glammg (witness this 
article), he tus a distinguished 
past, and mosl importantly, 
got there through hard work. 
As any candidate in either 
party can tell you, he's a force 
to be reckoned with 

Think for a moment about 
why he's so popular. Amenca 
wants the government off of 
Its back— witness the 

Republicans seizing control of 
both the House and Senate last 
year Waiting as long as he has 
to declair which party he 
wants to represent is the next 
logical step. Why do you think 
Ross Perot was so popular in 

While iioine would argue 
that he has very little political 
experience, I would call rising 
through the rank.s of the mili- 
tary more than a grueling les- 
son in politics. His lack of 
experience on Capitol Hill 
means there are few bad 
habits to undo Nobody would 
dare cross his path for a wfiile 
tiecause his bulliHproof media 
image would crush *em like a 

Another interesting con- 
cept he bnngs to the (able is 
credilability He isn't your typ- 

ical fast-talking politician who 
promises the world when he 
knows he can't deliver His 
past speaks for itself. He

Dear Editor: 

,^^ I wandered about cam- 
pu.s last Thursday. I picked up 
a copy of nu" Harbinger At thie 
bottom of page one. 1 noticed 
something — the two words 
that caught my eye in this little 
blurb were "commentary" and 
"controversial " "Ah, perhaps 
an interesting discourse" on 
national politics," I thought. 

The only clear point of Mr. 
Floden s article was that he 
wanted an excuse to engage in 
a little Clinton-basiling. 
Through his use of the demon 
Clinton, Mr Floden somehow 

manages to unify smoking, 
blue lean ads, AIDS, adverhs- 
ing and its effects on the 
young and the fiH>lish, church- 
es, and politics and tJien leaves 
us with the impression that he 
(cvls Mr Clinton is responsible 
tor the bad side of all these 
things What exactly was Mr. 
I loden s point? 

T.W. Fuller's point is quite 
clear and left me asking only 
one question What is Mr 
Fuller so scared of That mix- 
ing females and males in acad- 
emic settings will the 
males to become distracted 
and abandon their studies? 
Perhaps the Little Rascals will 
even take the 'No gurls 
allowed" sign off the dub- 

In closing, 1 would like to 
say that 1 was happy to see the 
commentary page was not 
covered with the standard lib- 
eral PC crud that college 
newspapers are occasionally 
prone to. At the same time, 
though, I was disappointed to 
find a pair of Rush Limbaugh 
clones spouting tired right- 
wing rlieloric

Of the 28 ivspondents, 64 
percent aj^reed with the ver-

those who agreed reasaned 
that there was a lack of evi-

Tony's Veil of Tears 

Tony instills wisdom in thosf who ask. 
Drop off a letter for him at the 
Harbmger office. Thejbllounng is from 
Tbnys mai^ag. 

Dear Tony, 

You probably won't print this but I 
have a mother that whines all the 
time if she doesn't get her way. 
She constantly complains to me of 
her loneliness and uses the tele- 
phone as her crutch. How can 1 tell 
her to find another outlet? 
Palatine. II 

Dear Sarah, 

I am sure that many of our readers 
have a relative or friend such as 
your mother, but when that annoy- 
ing teakettle whistles, who doesn't 
want to pull It off the stove. You are 
correct in stating that your mother 
needs another outlet Since you arc 
the one that she is turning to in her 
time of need, it is important that 
you be direct, state your message to 
her clearly, and do it in a non-pun- 
ishing way. Good luck. 

Dear Tony, 

My neighbor i» a pig and has a d is- 

gusting habit of chain-smoking 

cigarettes. 1 live directly above 
him and all the smoke from his 
apartment constantly flows into 
my living room. All my upholstery 
is white and I am sure that his 
smoke has turned it a greyish 
color. I've complained to the man- 
aging agent but he tells me that 
there isn't anything that they can 
do. Can you stop this? 
Up in Smoke 
Naperville, IL 

Don't just shut your eyes when 
smoke gets m them. The staining of 
your furnishings and the wafts of 
smoke clouding your domain are 
enough to take action! New York 
City and Los Angeles set prece- 
dence for the rest of the Uiuted 
States by abolishing cigarette 
smoke in public areas, as well as 
restaurants. Your neighbor has the 
right to smoke in the privacy of his 
own cave but doesn't have the right 
to pollute yours. You can write to R. 
Woods, Consumer information

Not much can be 
Mid about the 
recent Dick Dole 
conceit except this : 
With his trusty guitar 
in tow, he rocked the the- 
ater so hard this poor stu- 
dent walked out shaking 
plaster out o^ his hau Dick 
Dale is NOT the king of the 
surf guitar... He is the Cod. 
Opening with Ezekiel 25: 17 
(the dialog from Pulp 
Fiction) he blazed through 
an adienaline and testos- 
terone version of Misrihu. 

Dale performed from 
a variety of his of hits 
including one of whKh he 
dedicated to a nine year-old 
fan thai approached Dalt? in 
the past That young boy 
turned out to be |imi 

Dale won over his 

Harper "tribe" by playing 
requests Upon hearing 
this, the audience respond- 
ed asking to hear 
'Rpeline," from the mo¥ie 
Back to the Beach. 

Throughout the con- 
cert. Dale's three and a half 
year old son participated in 
the show, playing his small 
drum kit. His wife, Jill also 
joined him for a song play- 
ing a mean drum that 
would make Tommy Lee 

The classiest part of 
the evening took place after 
the show Dick Dale signed 
every autograph and was 
in no hurry to leave until 
Public Safety loM fans that 
It was time to leave. 

Dick Dale is a classy 
guv and a great on stage 
performer. He left the 
crowd with these three 
words of advice. "Keep on 
smiling " 

Trying to make a name 
tor yourself is some- 
thing that all bands fry 
ver) hard to do Spies who 
Surf are no different 

The group started eight 
years ago in a basement and 
are now kxiking to be a head- 
line group themsflves 
Bassist Marty Busca, said he 
believes that good things 
could be on the horizon. 

"Right now, all we need 
are some business smarts and 
some morwy", Busca said. 

Playing new and bigger 
venues are something that 
Guitarist Tommy Klein said 

To play Vegas and have our own 

sitcom- those are some of the 
thing I have always wanted to do. 

Tommy Klein, guitarist 
Spies Who Surf 

the band has been working 
on recenlty. 

"We have played the 
Riveria and West Coast 
Academy in New York.", 
Klein said. 

"We have a show 
Friday, Oct. 13 at the Elbow 
Room in Chicago. The Exotics 
will be opening for us." 

Coals from members in 
the group vary, but Klein and 
Busca both agreed that tiieir 
type of music is catching on 

and may lead to a west coast 

"To play Vegas, and 
have our own sitcom, those 
are some of the things 1 have 
always wanted to do," Klein 

Klein said he believed 
being the opening act for 
Dick Dale was an hotuir and 
he would love to do it again. 

"I'm excited to be play- 
ing on the same stage as Dick 
Dale," Klein said. 

Yipper-Ooo! Peter Dennis 
tucks audience in for a night 

loura Goniton 


Peter Dennis was on campus recently, 
performing in "Oh, Bother!", the show 
based on dramatic readings from the 
work of Winnie tfw Pooh creator A.A.Milne 

Best known as the voice of Wirmie the 
Pooh, Dennis delighted the audience by tak- 
ing requests on what thev wanted to hear 

At first the audience \v js slightly on the 
shy side, but they warmed up pretty quickly 
when Dennis asked if they wanted to hear In 
Which Tigger is Unboutuxd from "The House 
At Pooh Comer". Suddenly, suggestion.s 
rained in from everv din-ction. 

In addition, he also read two other sto- 
ries from Pooh Comer : In Which Pooh Invents 
a New Came and Eeyore loins In, and In Which It 
Is Shown That Tiggers Don't Climb Trees. He 
also read several works from "When We Were 
Very Young" and "Now We Are Six", two 
books of his own poetry. 

Not only did the audience receive a 
good share of bedtime stories and a welcome 
return to childhood's innocence, they also 
learned a little bit about Milne's life 

Reading from an easy chair to an all- 
ages audience, Peter Dennis managed to 
Si'cure sweet dreams that evening to each and 
ever} attendet.

An Equal Opportunity Employnr 


A&E Editof 

Matthew Sweet recently 
rtx:ked a sold-oul crowd at 
the Vic Theatre in Chicago. 
The show got underway artiund 7:30 
p.m , with a band called Dog's Eye 
View opening for Sweet. 

Dog's Eye View played a smok- 
ing 45-minutc set as a preview to 
their brand new finit-t-ver CD. 

It their album is anywhere near 
as good as their live performance was 
on Sunday, they will be huge within 
six months. 

Dog's Eye View s<:iunded a great 
deal like the Black Crowes, with a 
hint of a harder influence. 

Not many opening acts can claim 
that they would be worth the price of 
admission if some natural disastCT 
occurred just before the headliner 
came on - this is one of the select few. 

When Dog's Eye View finished 
their set, the crowd roared in 
approval and then quieted down in 
anticipahon of Sweet making the lat- 
est in a string of several recent 
Chicago appearances. 

He kicked off his set with a rol- 
licking version of an earlier tune, then 

proceeded to blast through many of 
his better known songs, including 
Girlfriend. Sick of Myself, and his most 
recx-nt, Wc'nf the Same. 

During onstage banter. Sweet 
took a couple of minutes to follow in 
the footsteps of Eddie Vcdder knock- 
ing certain radio stations (without 
naming names) for not promotiong 
him. Musically, he touched on a bit of 
everything he's done, from his earlier 
songs to his latest album, lOOX) Fun. 

A couple of the highlights were 
from the latest album; a rocking ver- 
sion of Not When I Need It and the 
moving / Almost Forgot. 

If his latest album is being hailed 
as his best yet and given rave 
reviews, there aren't words strong 
enough to describe his refreshingly 
exhilarating on-stage performance. 

Not present at the show were the 
lighters so often seen during slow 
songs, but the crowd did one better. 

They sang along with every 
word, from the beginning to the end 
of the encores, and for two hours the 
Vic Theatre rocked in unison. 

Sweet is a phenon\enal bundle of 
energy ruiuung rampant onstage. On 
a scale of 1 to 10, his live performance 
would rate a 500!

Our View 

OJ trial brings out 
the bad apples 

The News Media has been on a feeding 
frenzy of sensationalism since the begin- 
ing of the O) trial. At first it was just big 
news, but it swiftly became a national 
past-hme, with all the blood, love trian- 
gles, and fingerpointing of a superior 
soap opera. 

But just when you thought the dust had 
settled, the news media got it's second 
helping from glory-seekers a.k.a. anyone 
who says they kirow O.J. Simpson. 
And boy does it bite. 
Aside from all the super computer tech- 
nologies and fancy literary schemes, the 
resurgence of O.J. media hype has illumi- 
nated the trashy ambulance-chasers, 
seperating them from the real journalists 
who pride themselves on informing with 
a bit of entertainment, not the other way 

For the past 474 days the world has 
been bombarded by anything O. J. From 
white Bronco's to designer shoes. 

After a total of approximately 16 mil- 
lion dollars was spent on the "biggest 
waste of the century,". 

The murderer is still out there. 

But there still one question loft to be 
answtTt'd VVhjt is t'\N >;(nn,i; to covtT 
for the next vear now that Ihi tii<il is 

Gimmentary iheHaAinger 

An addicts confession 

Jon O'Brien. The Ed's View 

I admit it I ifx\ lousy and 
immature aK>ut it but I have 
to come clean I I am 1 am 
an OJ junkie I UxA in even, 
single bit oi mformation I 
could on what was regardt\l 
m the Inal ot the centun,' 
Now that it's o\er. I've got to 
accifpt that I have a problem 
and leam to o\ ercome it 

In order to east' rnvselt 
out ot mv lull, I've accumu- 
lated a plethora ot mtorma- 
tion regarding the trial. The 
media, in its infinite (lack of) 
wisdom, has expUnted the 
subject far beyond what it 
should have tieen, Ted 
Turner, Gtxl bles.s his heart, 
has provided all W.CXX) pages 
of testimony to be down- 
loaded from Cable News 
Network's Internet site 
rdkt/mdexhtml in case you'ne 
wondering) I've got both 
audio and video nx'ordings 
on tape. I've got my scrap- 

btx>ks o( newspaper articles. 
And of course, my prized col- 
lection of Naked Gun 
laserdiscs. It will last... for 

I could also partake in the 
racial controversy that seems 
to be swivpmg the nahon 
Not that the defensi' hasn't 
tanned the flames by bring- 
ing race into the closing argu- 
ments and involving mem- 
t>t>rs of the Nation of Islam, a 
group accused of racial dis- 
crimination, or anything As a 
member of the media. I know 
just how well we can endless- 
ly beat a dead horse. 

Even after the verdict of 
the debate dies off, we 11 shll 
hear about it. I can laugh at 
Tom Brokaw ponder over 
why there aren't more 
African-American country 
mu.sic stars I could also pon- 
der on why there aren't any 
African-Americans in hockey. 
Or I could ponder why there 
are so few Caucasians in foot- 
ball and rap music. 

Does anyone rememtaer 
what else is on tele\'ision or 
the radio? I'm sure there was 
something to watch before 

the trial. What did people 
talk about before the Simpson 
trial? Did our forefathers just 
walk around all the time? I 
turned on the radio and 
heard about some ballplayer 
named Dennis Rodoian join- 
ing a professional sports team 
called the Chicago Bulls. 
People tell me they won three 
World Championships in a 
row once but I can't remem- 
ber that far back. What are all 
of the talk shows going to 
comment on' We'll never 
know what David 

Letterman's Top Ten List is 
going to l>e, either. The jokes 
are going to slowly die off, 
the repetitive running of the 
Bronco chase will stop, and 
everyone will go on with 
their hves. 

I admit I have a problem. 
I admit that I need help. I am 
coping with my problem and 
I hope you can all find it in 
your hearts to forgive me tor 
my disease. I could only 
dream for so much. 

And now back to my reg- 
ularly scheduled life.

Nsr A 



t's startling to hear how many people think O.J. Simpson is guilty. Most of 
them ramble off some vague comment about evidence painting clearly and 
how they would vote were they jurors 
No matter 

The e\'idence acquits Simpson. And witlKnil benefit of hearing the most 
damnmg piece of evidencv, the jury still made the conect decision and found 
Simpson innocent because there was reasonable doubt 

That overwhelming, yet unintroduced piece of evidence was made by Mark 
Fuhrman. Los Angeles pi>lice officer and racist-at-large 

Without the courage to talk in front of the jurors, Fuhrman took the fifth ameivd- 
ment repeatedly, shruggmg off answenng questions that everyone had a right to 

And, paraphrasing Simpson attorney fohnnie Cochran, it was the biggest 
shock in the biggest trial F^specially when Fuhrman uttered in full view of the 
camera, when asked if he had planted evidence involving this case, his right 

against self-incrimination. 

Where were the families of Goldman 
and Brown when Fuhrman said this? 

Why were they not questioning police 
tactics and asking if, after all, there was rea- 
sonable doubt? 

Where were the millions of armchair 
lurists after the revelation that a knowingly 
racist cop hinted that he planted evidence? 

Instead ol asking, and probmg the inci- 
dent further, everyone chose to bury it and 
keep laying blame on Simpson 

Who were the real monsters then; the 
Fuhmians, the Simpsons, or the families and 
supporters of tfie murder victims' families? 

There is just as much responsibility to 
consider all the evidence. Minuscule drops 
of bltHxl, tampered with at best, untraced 
gloves and a yelping dog do not a court deci- 
sion make 

For J vear and ti)ur months SimpMxi had his right to be considered inno- 
cent until proven guilty taken jwj\ 

Seemingly weekly beratings trom Goldman's dad and Brown's sister did 
the )i*t and made Simpson a murderer without direct pnxif 
That was wnmg. 

Without a doubt, the families of Goldman and Brown have suffered great 
losses And they deserve to find out the truth 

But that gives them no right to convict Simpson in the public, with no proof 
of a direct link to the murders 

A vvife-K'atet Simpson is And his guilt m that aspect is not arguable. But that 
shouldn t cloud the issue of a murder 

l>icf M.ircKi Clark and her band of merrv lawyers attempted to make his 
past a motivjiiDiul ijctor it was Cochran s right and privilege to find racial 
issu.^ that were pertinent to the tnal. One hand washes the other, wouldn't you

The candidates pro- 
posed their ideas on how 
Harper could best meet the 
demands of the community 
«ik1 successfully move into

foremost, the need for up- 
dated computers in the tabs.

"We have lo

Richard Hetxer. 

But upgrading

Ricard Cillelte

Harper does have a

assess the best way to 
date the computer labs. 

The .second issue dis- 
cumed was the declining 

enrollment at Harper. 

Without speculating on 
win, the candidates 
proposed ways in 
which the schtKil could 
attract more students. 

Heise sug- 
gested "We need lo do 
more marketing direct- 
ed toward young peo- 
ple on the radio sta- 
tions that they listen to.

all the excellent programs at 

Judith Hess added "It 

rots my siKks that people 
don't realize what a high cal- 
iber schtKil Harper is." 

John Coste added that 
"The programs need to he 
evalualed to keep up with the 
changing community. ' 

The proposed Building 
VV " was also talked about at 
the torum. B.J. Taylor said 
"There is money allocated by 
the state for a fine arts build- 
ing and Harper needs a Ae- 
ater facility to catch up with 
other colleges." 

Most candidates agree 
that a fine arts building at 
Harper would be somewhat 
of a coup - attracting addi- 
Honal income from renting 
the theater and proposed 
conference center 

Students do have a 
voice on who will serve on 
ttie Board by voting m the 
local election Nov. 7.

Simon (D-Ill.) may be leaving 
Congress when his current term 
expires, but that doesn't mean 
he'll give up lectuiing 

Instead of trying to per- 
suade fellow poUticians with his 
unique oratory style, Simon will 
spend his tune in the classroom. 

After Simon, 66, voluntari-

ond term is complete in January 
1997, he wiU head a new SIU 
department on public policy, 
teaching classes in ioumalisn and

"This will give me an 
opportunity to continue to focus 
on the iweds of my home region 
as well as Illinois, the nation and 
the international community," 
said Simon, who resides in nearby 

SIU officials say the new 
Paul Simon Chair in Public Policy 
will focus on the ways policies 
affect and are affected by govern-

members of society 

"We belie\'e this scholarly

"Both of them were over 
the age of 18, and it 
appeared to be consentu-

by Dr. Jar>et Fnend-

The Canterbury trip 
allows exchange studentt to 
learn in a univtrsity with 
other Bntish students. The 
students take 12 credit hours 
which are all transferable 

"The kid* really get 
involved, there is a lot of 
interaction," says Friend - 
Westney, "One student 
worked at a radio station, 
anollier was on student sen- 
ate and another was involved 
in sports. ' 

Anybody can go The 
pnce tag on the trip is about 
as much tme semester of a 
state college. Students don't 
have to study a foreign lan- 
guage or have an exceptional- 
ly high grade point average 
lo qualify. 

Money is a central 
pmblem There is not enough 
funding for the program or

Nationwide, ghostly kgends thrive 
on campuses. 

"There's |usl .so much ijoing on 
in college buiidmgs when vou think 
about their history, not to mention 
some of the high emotions that peo- 
ple have when they're m school," 
says Richard Crowe, j ■•upematural 
ftmnomensk expert who's based in 
Chicago "Ghosts can thrive on those 
emotians. They can tap into the anxi- 
eties that people havr '* 

Crowe says 
most ghosts 
fust want to be 
noticed "If 
people pay 
attention to 
them and let 
them co-exisl, 
they'iw usually 

fine," he says "The problems some- 
hmes start when people try to deny 
that they exist.' 

For many students acruw tht^' 
nation, the question about whether 
ghosts exist has been answered by 
Iheir campus experiences 

For years, students at Manaiieid 
University in Mansfield, Pa. have 
maintained that North Hall is haunt- 
ed by Sarah Sarah, according to cam- 
pus legend, is the ghost of a studiml 
who committed suicide by leaping 
over a railing through an open atrium 
in the building 

The building, which was built 
in 1874, has been vacant for many 
years, giving Sarah plenty of room to 
roam. Mansfield students say they 

that go bump in the night 

college campuses and dormatories 

sometimes see Sarah m the windows 
ot the building's top fl<x)r. supposed- 
ly lookif^ few her former lover 

But Sarah's days ot solitude 
may be numbered. This fall, the uni- 
versity began extensive renovations 
on North Hall and has plans to (urn 
the old building into a state-of-the-art 
library and academic center It the 
ghost liked the peace and quiet of her 
abandoned building, it soon will be 
bustling with students

The death of Brandon Lee has 
also been called accidental Lee was 

killed on March 31, l^^ dunng film- 
ing of nil- Cmu\ There were some 
fairly bizarre cisrumstances leading 
up to his death 

The shoot was plagued by acci- 
dents A carpenter wa^ -.everely 
burned in a freak accident, a disgrun- 
tled sculptor drove his car through 
the plaster shop, and another crew 
member drove a screwdriver tfirough 
his own hand. 

The scene during which Lee 
died was a flashback and called for a 
closeup on the weapon used, so the 
props people were compelled to use a 
real gim loaded with harmless blanks. 
The police have now theorized that 
somehow a lead tip had been lodged 
inside the barrel of the gun When the 
blank engaged, it was the equivalent 
of live ammunition. When the actor 

pulled the trigger, the gunpowder 
created a bang, <md the bullet which 
had been lodged in the barrel pro- 
pelled itself out of the gun and mto 
Lee's abdomen. 

The Crow was Brandon Lee's 
last motion picture before his 
suspiciously untimely death.

Our View 

Another example of the 
school's leaders looking 
out for our interests 

As you stand outside Building A during the 
•ariy ntomii^ hours of Halloween waiting for 
your registration appoirttment cards, may we 
suggest that you gaze upon the proposed sight of 
Building W. The new building would occupy the 
grassy area to the west of Buildings L and P. 

Is this a Halloween nightnuire come true, or 
are you really waiting in the freezing cold in 
order to get one of the scarce lab-science classes at 

Have your registration prayers been 
answered? Is Harper College iiwreasing the num- 
ber of math and sdeiKe classes available to stu- 
dents? Of course not. It's the same old story each 
s e m e ste r . We (the students) start lining up as 
early as 10:00 p.m. the night before the registra- 
tion cards are issued. 

Students are forced into this ritual as a result 
of the lack of math and science classes offered at 
Harper. Each semester we hope the Harper 
adniinistration, in all it's infinate wisdom, will 
hear our plees. 

But no, the powers that be at Harper College 
have decided that Building W, will house a per- 
forming arts theater, art gallery, and conference 

The performing arts theater is expected to 
attract a higher caliber of artists to Harper 
College. It is hoped that these performances 
would bring increased revenue to the college. 

The conference rooms will be equipf>ed with 
state of the art techiwlogy in hc^>es of attracting 
corporate dollars for Harper's coffers. What will 
Harper do with all of the money? Candidates for 
the Board of Trustees were unable to answer that 

Each member of the Board of Trustees 
should be required to experience the registration 
process first hand. They just might catch a clue as 
to whose interests are the most vital on a college 

Who benfits the most from Building W? Is it 
the students of Harper College? NOT! Is it for 
Harper's power elite? You've hit the jackpot. or 
have they? 

Racism: You can't fix it alone 

Jon O'Brien • The Ed's 

Racism tia!> been a pretty hot 
topic lately, especially after 
the Simpson trial, and more 
recently, the Milhon Man 
March What's worse, far tcx> 
many people seem to inter- 
ested in pomtmg fingers and 
accusing everyone else of the 
pixiblem instead of actually 
working to correct it. I'm sure 
that other countries ravaged 
by poverty and disease are 
absolutely sick with us and 
the way we complain about 
our happy little nation not 
being happy enough. 

Contrary to a lot of 
opinions, whites are not the 
most racist people in 
Amenca, and the infamous 
march only goes to prove it. If 
the intent of the March was 
exactly wliat the organizers 
stated it to be, most people 
would be in favor o( it — I 
know I would But when the 
organizers restrict the march 
to one ethnic group and one 
sex, s<->mething doesn't sound 

When the oraturs blab 
the racist remarks through 

our nation's capital, the good 
is overshadowed by the hate 
lihat is blatantly present. This 
doesn't sound like a message 
of peace and unity to me. 

Let me make one thing 
perfectly clear: I am for 
America. I am not pro- white 
or pro-black, pro-this or pro- 
that I've heard far too many 
people in the last couple 
weeks tell me that I'm a 
racist, both in person and in 
the media. Hypocrites like 
Louis Farrakhan and Al 
Sharpton are telling attendees 
of the March that "the white 
man" has to be pulled out of 
government before any 
change is to occur, and thai 
call mra racist?! 

The hypocrisy of this 
whole march is amazing. I've 
heard an awful lot of obnox- 
ious rumors about it: whites 
are afraid of black power, 
whites are afraid of too many 
black people in one area, and 
blacks think that white 
supremacy is the root of all 
evil. Tell me, if whites are so 
afraid of blacks and so para- 
noid of black power, then 
why are blacks the ones who 
are fearing "the white 

It gets worse If I hear 
another idii't JNk for their 40 
acres and a mule, I'm going 

to scream. Hey, luibody gave 
me 40 acres and a mule, 
either! I live in a house on a 
quarter acre in Schaumburg. 
And furthermore, don't 
expect me to apologize to 
anyone for injustices commit- 
ted a hundred years ago. Just 
because most slave drivers 
were white doesn't mean that 
I am one of them. I wasn't 
around for it and neither 
were you. 

The fact is controlling 
racism, much less ending it, 
will only happen if everyone 
works towards it. 

WE need to work to 
tame this beast. WE must 
work, as an undivided whole, 
to bring an end (or at least 
some control) to racism. Yet 
with the way my race has 
been slandered lately, I'm cer- 
tainly not any more inclined 
to help out now than I was a 
month ago. 

Above all else, keep in 
mind that reverse discrimina- 
tion is still discrimination. 
The only difference between 
Mark Fuhrman lying on the 
stand and Louis Farrakhan 
lying to the masses is that 
Farrakhan is more popular. 
They are both bigots, they are 
both racists, and they are cer- 
tainly both dangerous. And 
that's a real shame.

Farrakhan's Million racist, bigoted man march? 

JM. Fuller • American Independent 

In 1%9 Maitin Luther King )r atgi- 
ni/ed a inarch on Washington- His 
goal w»» a nonvioUmt ptotesi for 
civil nghts 

Whjt he accomptished that day 
IS »tiU impacting American «H.>t'ty 
today more favorably than U>uis 
Farrakhan and his tupforKn would 
bother to admit. 

It is lwcau«e of this failure that 
Farrakhan orgaiuzed hi» own 'Million 
Man March." 

The goal he staled is one of 
atonement, reconciliation and a com- 
ing together of all black men. 

This from a man who has a hi»- 
lory of bigotry and racism; anti-semi- 
shsm; wh«> shows no indication of 
utefd it ^ these views any hme noon. 

And it i» the fact that many black 
men, for whatever rea«>n. Iistwied to 
him; marched at his beckoning, know- 
ing he is a racist, thai frustratn and 
bewilders whiles 

How is it a man like Farrakhan is 
able to gather such a quantity of men, 

why IS It they would dare to come at 
the beckoning of this lunatic; is this 
just the beginning of Farrakhan's cru- 
sade, and will others Mwn follow? 

It is questions like these that an- 
on the minds of many Ameriuns 

This man-h has created a spark 
for Farrakhan and now he believes he 
is a 'dream come true," a savior of 


He lavor^ himself a n»le model 
for black men Will they oblige him. 
what would tlie consiquences be' 

There has been much debate on 
the validity of the march, what it 
meant, if anything, whether or not it 
was significant 

It may he that the only signifi- 
cance was the number of black men 
whoattendrd Regardless of the actu- 
al size. It wa.s the largest gathering of 
black men recorded in American hislo- 

And how many of them were- 
»i«e-in»pired when Farrakhan totik the 
Mage for thi.'i 'nio»i important of 
events" and without wanung, though 
unsurpnsingly, ranted and raved 
about the number nineteen? 

Those that did show a pmlDUnd 
interest in his nonsensical speech were 
perhaps tlie same ones that displayed a 

poster depicting a black figure kicking 
a white figure in the backside, with 
words on top reading, "Now it's our 
turn". Our turn for what? 

Farrakhan would be most proud 
ot tbfse black racists had he seen their 

But with all the many lackeys he 
used for bodyguards, ttiey may have 
obscured his view. 

But if not. the hilarious bullet 
proof ilwild he hid behind mav have 

Is it not mtereshng to noti- this 
Louis Farrakhan who pttifesv'^'s »uch 
great love and joyfulness to the men 
who came; expresses the urgent need 
for unity and oneness; to not be afraid 
to stand together as brotfiers-all from 
beflind a Injllet proof shield 

Irony certainly does come in all 
shapes and si^es and colors 

And what other dn\ fling [argon 
did vomit from his per\ erted mouth' 

"My people havi- validated me," 
Farrakhan said triumphantly from 
behind his safety sheild. 

If true, then this march may be 
reinterpreted to be the million racist, 
bigoted man march. 

"God spoke through me," 
Farrakhan said pointing uncontrolably 
to himself. Didn't Hitler say something 
of the like in the beginnmg of his 

"super race" crusade? And what 
about Saddam Hussein? 

"The root of the nation's suffer- 
ing is white supremacy," Farrakhan 

What about his goal of bladi 
supremacy' Will that solve the 
nation's problems? 

Is it white supremacists who put 
guns in the hands of blacks and order 
them to kill as many "brothers" and 
"sisliTs" as possible? Is it white 
supa'macists who order blacks to sell 
drugs and beat their wives and chil- 
dren? Is it the fauh of white suprema- 
cists that has kept LA blacks from 
moving up, or is it their own procrasti- 

Now the match is over No mote 
idle speeches from meaningless 
lunahcs. No more blame displacing 
or frivolous name calling. 

The men have treked home 
thinking they have somehow been 
changed by all this; thinking that tfiis 
march has somehow^ made a differ- 
ence; that things will now be 

And has it? Or is it a case of 
"oidy time wHl tell?" If so, how much 
hme does it take in order to dissuade 
murder, rape and drug dealing? That's 
the 64,000 dollar question. 

Wham bam, a 
baseball slam ... 

David Pump • Managing Edttor 

The stnke is o\er and thes could poaaiMy be the best 
World Series ever and you're still not watching. 
It is uivlerstandable it you are still upset, but the regu- 
lar season is over and you should be happ> that you didn't 
Spend a single dime at Wrigley Field or Comiskey Park 

This LS the hme for the greatest teams to perform some 
magic Along with Budweiser to cnHiTtain us all with anoth-

Baseball really hurt its reputation with all the bickenng 
between players and owrw^ if it wasn't for C al ■Inwiman" 
Ripken there would have been no reason to be interested unhl 
playoff time anyway 

Do you realue the Ust World Senes Champion is from 
Canada So much tor the great American pastime - or is it pnst- 

Society will never forget the year that mighty Casry did- 
n't even have a chance to pick up hia heralded bat. much less 
strike out 

The Cubs didn't have to waste their fans tim*- going to 
the best ballpark m the world Or a chance for the White Swh 
to blow it in the playof6» again. 

Forget all of that The players are trying their damnedest 
to win back fans The playoff series between the Yankees and 
Mariners proved to be a battle to the very end. pitting Donny 
"Baseball ' Mattingly against the best ol the new generation - 
KenGnffey )r 

That brought some fans back to rmit tor the underdog, 

In this World Sent~. the Atlanta Braves and the 
Clevelatvi Indians deserve respect from the farts for turning 
their respect It* (if that is the nght word) organiiations around 
after bcmg the doormats o* pi Sessional baseball during the 
mid 80' i. 

Tlwse two le«nis have gone through as long a drought 
as our verv own Cubbies. 

RoalisiKallv the World Series should have been played 
by Donald (.hr (union representative) and Bud Selig (the 
interun commissioner) within a hoxmg ring. 

Regardless of what happens in the World Series and the 
montfis to follow, the only real winners here are the fans that 
have remamed faithful to the game that left them. 

Phone cops a real joke 

absence of smokeys on info-superhighway 
allow for greater freedom as well as crime 

Paul Floden • Down the river 

When Ed O'Neil parades around in a 
beater with "Phone Patrol" 
scrawled on tfie sides, we laugh at 
its satirical ludicricy 

But should we? 

After years of having no controls or 
standards, and several deaths as well, the 
government finally set legal guidelines for 

At about the same hme, the Di-partmcni 
of Defense releas«-d The Internet to the public 

They gave open, twcvway tmpersonable 
communication to America, bowed, turned 
and walked away, without a thought as to not 
only the possible but very probable marufesta- 
ticin oi a worst case scenario. 

And now it is beyond control. 

In the movie Time Cop, the first thing the 
government did when time travel was invent- 
ed was implement a ptilice force to patrol the 
time stream; they set up controls V\T\y is it 
the LVpt. of Del couldn t or didn't en* ision 
the dangers of something called cyberspace' 

Did they think that on an informahon 
superhighway with nii speed limits, in a 
county without law enforcement, the general 
public (or any moron with a computer) would 
behave and act responsibly? 

If they think the public is that honest, 
maybe they should reevaluate the purpose of 

the IRS 

The heart is naturally wicked, as both 
leUgion and Darwin would agree. 

Getting away with murder is just anoth- 
er challenge for a modem man, and now it's 
been made even easier, not only by unprofes^ 
sional activihes of the LAPD, but by the blind- 
ers on the rich bitch known as justice. 

In most cases it is easy to trace where 
things have come from on-line, but with the 
furtfier development of service providers and 
other little nooks and crannies, it's only a mat- 
ter of time before transmission is untraceable 
and things like pornography become more 
than just conunonplace, they become screen 

Not that I'm against all that, but tiwn, 1 
don't have kids But I do have privacy. At 
least at the moment. 

However, someday I'll be on-line every- 
day with the rest of the world - Going to 
work, paying the bills, even dating from the 
comfort of a Mac. 

Entire cyberdbes will be built within 
tlie confines of a hard drive, complete with 
churches, arcades, banks and brothels. 

Every step taken - unmonilored. 

Every action - anonymous. 

An uncontrollable domicile where 
I'very resident is a nowhere man, and every 
mmutc is spent experwively 

But balance is universal. And although 
every step may be obsfucated, the trail will 
remain for open view, and your past will be 
accessible to any person or group to use for 
their own purposes, ethical or not. 

And that's the price you pay for 
Anarchy in a cyberstate.

Tom Strzewski named new diving coach 

Susan Radcmachir 

Spoms Editor 

Tom Stncwski hwbMn 
named the new diving 
coach for the Harper 
College swimming and div- 
ing team. 

Strsewski spent three 
years as a diving coach at 

Hinsdale South high sjchool 
wheiv he placed all but one 
•cnior diver at a National 
Collegiate Athletic 
Association Division I school. 
"Diving is a very relaxing 
sport to coach," Strzewski 

"I got into diving when 
my five year old son took up 

the sport. I took the time to 
learn about it,' Strzewski 
stated. In an effort to increase 
his knowledge of the sport, 
Strzewski has received 
videos from diving coaches 
acn»s the nation. 

"1 came to Harper 
because I wanted to devote 
my time to diving only," 

Strzewski said. "Harper has a 
good program and hard 
working athletes." 

Strzewski also wanted 
to spend more time with his 
wife and thn?t? children. "I've 
been able to some of my kids' 
games and it's been great," 
Strzewski stated. 

Strzewski goes to work 

in his Wood Dale auto shc^ at 
four o'clock in the/noming. 
He follows a day's work by 
bringing his One Percent 
Theory to the diving pool in 
Building M. "My tfieory is 
that if you come to practice 
every day, that you'U 
improve one per cent each 
day," Strzewski said. 

The Bears of '95 not the Super Bowl Bears of '85 

Jeff Newton 
Cue«Colummi t 

This past Sunday the 
reunion tour of the 
1985 Superbowl 
Champion Chicago Bean 
made a stop at Soklier Field 

for a half-time celebration. 
Long before this e%'ent the 
comparisons between the "85 
team and this years Bear 
team have been frequent but 
mostly unfair. 

The 1985 Chicago 
t dominalcd the NFL 

each and every week, except 
for the embarrassn>ent in 
Miami. The 1995 Bears can't 
stop any of their opporfents 
on defense and are scoring 
points at an unbelievable 

When the game 

ended the Bears had won 
and fans were raving about 
the half-time celebration. 
"Sweetness" Walter Payton 
spoke of how much fun it 
was to perform for the fans 
and represented the champi- 
onship trophy to the Bear's 

faitfiful fans. 

From now until ti\e 
next championship, every 
Bear team will be compared 
to the champions of 1985. 

Fair or not, being 
critical is part of being a 
Bears fan.

The defense is led by defensive end Will Ford 
who has nine and a half sacks on ifie season despite 
a broken finger ttiat he sustained in Harper's Oct 7 
victory over |oliet. 

Dfensive Coordinator Tim Hatfield gave the 
defense the nickname "Bad to the Btine."

Fred Boston on the line. The tinebacking corps 
includes Pat izzo, Aaron Thooias, Eric Siegai Josh

$14,714 has nearly tripled, 
but students and faculty 
members say the stigma of 
the award is reason enough 
to stay awjv 

"Mr. tJeBarr had obvi-

a university historian. 

"Students have suggested 
different uses for the fund, 
such as cultural awareness 
programs, but so far nothing 
has been done because ot the 
award's guidelines ' 

DeBarr's family has 
stipulated that the award be 
presented in his name and be 
used for research in tfie phys-

DeBarr, who joined 
OL"s faculty as a chemistry 
professor in IH'^2, served as

DeBarr helped organize OV 

schools in chemistry, physics,

the Board of Regents for his 
continued participation in the 
KKK. where he served as the 
grand dragon of Clklahoma.

after DeBarr until 1988, when

• Look out bad guys of 
the world, James Bond will be 

returmng to a theater near you 
November 17. Pierce Brosnan 
debuts as the fifth actor to 
play Ian Remming's dashing 
secret agent. Brosnan will be 
following in l! ' ' ps of 

S-an Conner-. 

La/anb\, Roger .Mi'orr. , and 
most recently Timothv Dalton. 
The newest (X)7 flick is 
"(ioldeneve" and yes, it has a 
new edition ol Bond Girls. 
Whether you re .1 liond 
fan, or a first 
timer, now is the 
time to stop by 
your lavc>rite 
video rental 
store and check 
out Bond 
movies of the 
past. Why not 
sample each of 
the three most 
famous men (o 
play the martini 
not stirred), 
ladies' man who works for the 
British goverrunent between, 
during, and after dales? 

There is the ultimate 
James Bcmd movie that is 
credited as being the movies 
that really put Bond on the 
HoUywotxi map: 
"Goldfinger ' Sean Connery is 
magnificent as the secret agent 
who tries to prevent the evil 
Mr Goldfinger from breaking 
into Fori Knox. Not to be 
missed is Goldfinger's diaboli- 
cal man servant CWd Job. 

"Spy" is where Bond 
first meets the most orthodon- 
tic of his adversaries. Jaws can 
cut through just about every 
substance with his metal teeth. 
Ringo Starr's wife, Barbara 
Bach, is (X)7's gal pal in this 
imderwater thriller Keep your 
eye out for the Lotus sports 
car that agent Q "lends" to 

Finally, there is the most 
recent man to ooze Bond's 
charm. Acior Timothy Dalton 
debuted as Bond in "The 
Living Daylights" m 1987. 
Weapons dealers and corrupt 
Soviet officials tangle with 
Bond as the scenery spans the 
former Czechoslovakia, 
Austria, Tangiers, imd 
Afghanistan. Opium, dia- 
monds, and assassinations add 
to the thnll of this tlick. 
If these titles don't interest 
you, there are plenty more to 
choose from. James Bond can 
usually l»e found in the Action 
.\d venture section of most 
video rental stores Some 
stores even gi> e Bond his own 
si-c-ti(<n within the .Adventure 
section so customers don't 
have to seek out each title.

Our View 

Wanted: Some 
creditability from 
school officials 

Might a suggestion be made for the 
next election- will the voters please actu- 
ally find out the candidates \ iews 
are on major issues. 

Those of you who were at the student 
forum where attendants could ask the 
candidates of their opinions on various 
issues might recall some of the answers 
given You might recall Mr. Co>te doz- 
ing off. But the one thing vou won't 
remember is a stellar pertormance gi\ en 
by either of the two trustees fortunate 
enough to be elected- Judith Hess and 
Richard Gillette Contrary to some opin- 
ions, accessibility of administrators is 
not a personal problem. Come to think 
of it, you won't remember ani/thm:^ 
about Gillette because he didn't e\ en 
show up. Yet you'll find a shining 
endi>rsement in The Daili/ Herald for both 
of them. 

Of course, that's just life at Harper 
We won t even mention any examples ot 
questionable outcomes from student 
conduct cases or the lack of administra- 
tor accessibility 

It's time some people around here 
start to naii/e the imp(>rtance of their 
jobs and how they affect the community 

This isn't a game.

Lfetters to the Editor 

Was Halloween in the last Harbinger issue? 

Dear Editor 

■^our Halloween issue was 
really scar)'. Your article 
"Farrakhan s Millicm racist, bigot- 
ed man march'" was wonderfully 
fnghterung, even if one discounts 
the punctuation and spelling. One 
can just imagine the costume 
worn while if was being written— 
white sheet, burning cross. SiiKe 

the march generates such intelli- 
gent discussion, raises such cen- 
tral concerns, and confronts many 
of us with personal and political 
confusion, the presence of tfiis 
pitxe in our college paper reminds 
me of the warnings about tainted 
candy prevalent at this tune of 

Karen Keres 

Professor of English 

Please don't eat Harper's geese for Thanksgiving 

To Whom it May Concern: 

I am very disturbed about a 
recent article printed in the 
Harper News, "What is the 
answer to controlling the geese 

What ever happened to liv- 
ing m Harmony w itii nature and 
all Its living creatures' 'iou put a 
pond on your property, what did 
you expect to see?? Surely not an 
empty pond! 

Why does it seem that all 
our answers to so-called "animal " 
problems is to eat them, kill them, 
wear them or relcK'ate them 
"Man" has completely destroyed 
much of nature and ils creatures, 
because we continue to do these 
thmgs. Therefore because ' nian" 

continues to do these tilings, ani- 
nmls, birds and other living crea- 
tures have no chaiKe but to find 
sources of food, water and shel- 

The aaswer to your so- 
called problem is very simple, fill 
in your pond or learn to under- 
stand , accept and appreciate 
natun? and its species. 

I will continue to follow 
what your decision will be on this 
topic and if it's one of harsh 
judgement or cruelty -you will 
have a fight on your hands. 1 
belong to Chicago -Animal Rights 
Coalition and will not allow those 
things to happen so close to my 
home or anywhere

lunior Colleges" program 

SiiKe 1968, Harper College has 
participated in the "Who's Who" pro- 
gram This program provides recogni- 
tion tor outstanding students in junior 
and community colleges across the 
country. Each student selected for this 
recognition is listed in a biographical 
volume which has become a respected 
reference source for colleges and busi- 
nesses, and as a life long service, they 
may use the "Who's Who" office as a 
permanent reference source /file for 
prospective employers. 

This recognition means a great 

deal to the students selected. 

At Harper, the selection commit- 
tee IS comprised of students, faculty, I 
and staff. A three-fold criterion is used I 
for evaluating applicants. 1 ) Academic I 
standing, 2.) Partiapation and leader- 
ship in curricular and co-curricular j 
activities, and 3 ) Community service. 
In addition, candidates must have com- 
pleted at least 24 semester hours by the I 
time they are considered. 

If students feel they may possibly I

in the Shjdent Activities Office, A336, 1 
immediately, since the deadline fori 
applying is early January. Forms are] 
available for this purpose.

Certificate is now bemg offered 
Individuals can take classes indepen- 
dently or combine basic and advanced 
dmes to achieve a professional certifi- 
cate from the Office of Community and 
Program services. 

The year>«ld program provides

groups to acquire new skills, receive cre- 
dentials, recognition and valuable infor- 
mation. The certificate program includes 
lix foundation courses such as market- 
ing, volunteer evaluahon. motivation of

Lieutenant Governors Office praised 
Harper's efforts tor establishing such an 
important pit>gram. 

The scope of the program covers a 
need far beyond the reach of Harper's 
boundaries and has distinct implications 
for not-for-profit boards and major cor- 
porations needing speafic framing in 
Ifie area of volunteerism

Faculty Spotlight: Michael Harkins 

Anyone who has History 112 or Western civi- 
lization may know Mr Michael J Harkins 
Always well dressed in a suit and tie, Harkins 
lectures enthusiastically to his history 

The "cold war" lecture can be very bor- 
ing, but when Harkins tells of his own experi- 
etKC as a child, hiding under a desk during an 
air raid drill, students can experience real life 
history in the classroom. 

From digging up artifacts all around the 
workl to researching govertunent documents, 
Hatkins actually "practices what he preach- 

Talking about his personal experiervres 
and researching the things that he speaks 
■bout, are two of the reasons why we have 
chosen to put Harkins in our faculty spotlight. 

The following is an interview done with Mt.

Personal hero: William Jennings Bryant 
Worst advice you ever got: Don't ever 
ask for diiecti<ws when traveling in foreign 
countnes, it just doesn't work

If I've learned one thing in life it's: 
When your in school, whether it's undergrad-

According to Wondor, the surviving 
Beatles drifted in and out of tiie pn))cct

tune we were domg it. Paul had his world 
tour. Ringo was touring, and George 
Harrison was either in Austratu or Los 
Angeles. So,' he notes, "they were very 
hard to pm down at times But one was 
always available to interview. For me it 
was four years and two months of my life, 
work-wise. For them, they're talking about 
things that happened a kmg tune ago. 
They were amazingly cooperabvc. I inter- 
viewed each of them eight tunes " 

As much as he en|oycd interviewing 
each of the men, no moment earned with it 
more history -in-the-making power than 
the first day Wmfor waa able to capture 
McCartney, Hanisan and Starr transform-

"It waa very emotional,'' he recalls. 
'If you hear the track, it's actually the 
Beatks. That's the iiKredible thing That's 
what Ringo said when he listened to the 
playback. He said. 'My Cjod. it's the 
Beatles!' When you've heaid all the styles 
that have gone since and hear a Beatles 
track now ttvat no one's ever heard, it's 
amazing. " 

Wonfor reports that he is both liter-

Queen: Mercury's spirit lives on 

Laura Garrison 

>y«_4 fntcrtainment Editor 

Rumor has it that befonr Ficddk 
Mercury sucxumtMKi to AIDS 
im Niwcmber 24. Wl, he had 
sf>ent much time creating iww 
musK— several albums worth. H«t 
even got around to i«c«Niiin(t much 
of ii befof* he paMfd away. It is 
now available in slon». iu«t intimi- 
for the hi>ltdays. 


Mndt tn Hrm'tn 

HoUywcxxl Kecunls 

AiWr ttt Hflftvn m 
the newest (and pratiably 
last) ivtease fitnn Queen 
There appears to be a 
thematic examination of Mercury's 
lost few years I°h» is evident m moit 
ol the lyrics ol the aJbuni, hut most 
obvious in the liner notes: 
"Dedicated to the immottit sptril of 
Freddie Mercury". 

The disc opens with a 
poignantly emotional "It's a Beautiful 
Day" — appearing to be Itie words of 
a man who does not want his immi- 
nent death to interfere with the short 
time he knows he has left. 
Conhnuing with the title track. 
Mercury seems to be exploring the 
mie of fale in causing hts condition- 
he seems to feel that his predicament 
was somehow meant to be. 

"Mother Love" is pertiaps the 

most significant in its exploration of 
death — Mercury seems to have 
accepted that death is coming for 
him and he wilt no longer be alone. 
The mixing; pruduclion in particular 
are significant in this scmg 
(Mercury's last) — there are bits and 
pieces of earlier songs interspersed 
with the s<iund of scanning back- 
wards Ihitmgh a CD. culminating in 
llw erica of a baby. 

"A Waller's Tate" 
seems almost like an end- 
ing — in the winter of his 
life a man remembers ail 
of tfie things he loved in 
life. This would have been 
a fitting ending, but in the 
typical Queen style, there 
has to be a reprise. That 
in the replay of "It's a 
Beautiful Day" The reprise almost 
gives the impression of a man accept- 
ing hts death and going to heaven, 
recalling llie theme fn>m the first 
song and expanding on it. 

Made In Heaven is a must-have 
for any Queen fan. This represents 
Mercury at his best — if he had been 
around tn see the release of this 
album its un)ilu-ly that there would 
have been much done differently. 
The vocals probably weren't finished 
beftrrv he passed away — it would not 
have changed the (act that this is an 
unbelievable finale to top off 
Mercury's many musical achieve- 

Din and a movie for the holidays 

Susan Rademachcr • Dinner with Suz 

Take time out from sliopping 
this holiday season and treat 
yourself to dinner and a 
movie. There are two ways of 
acccnnplishing ycmr goal, depend- 
ing upon your finances and your 
energy level. 

The first option is to dine at a 
restaurant and follow up dinner 
with a movie at your favorite the- 
ater. After pounding tfie walk- 
ways of the Woodfield shopping 
mall, you can choose from the 
many eateries in tlie Woodfield 
area. Ovnces range from the 
newly opened Hooters to the jun- 
gle adventure that awaits you at 
The Rainforest Cafe. Whatever 
your taste in food, and financial 
capabilities, there's a place for 
you. Top the evening off witti 
James Bond's newest flick or 
director Jodi Foster's "Home for 
the Holidays." 

If you've got something cozier in 
mind, there is a second option 
available. Try getting lake out 
from one of die Woodfidd area 
restaurants and rent a movie from 
your favorite video rental store. 
Denzel Washington and Gene 
Hackman star in the newly 
released "Crimson Tide." It's 
right up your alley if you liked 
"Hunt for Red October." Last 
year's remake of the classic 
"Miracle on 34* Street," is also 
available for family viewing. 

Take some time to relax and 
cr^y the Holidays by treating 
yourself to dinner and a movie.

A visit to 'Dining Room' 

Catherine Griffith 

Guest Wri ter 

Friday evening's per- 
fbmunce of 'HThe Dining 
Room" prov'ided wonderful 
family entertainment. The 
entire play takes place in a 
dining loom and features 
the lives of family members 
from many different time 
periods over the past 100 

Earty scenes showed 
life of the typical aristocrat- 
ic bmily with simple prob- 
lems such as a housewife's 
bofcdom and a child's 
inability to express himself 
to his parents. 

As the "Dining 
Room" moves through time 

the complex problems of 
modem families are 
explored. These scenes deal 
with issues like extramarital 
affairs, drug use and illness. 

Througfu>ut the play 
one thing remains constant 
- the families use the dining 
nx)m as the focal point for 
all ttieir activities

The Harbinger 

Our View 

Lookin' way 

Upon us once again is the cold, brisk 
chills of winter, which bring with them the 
omen of colds, flus, and even pneumonia. 
Its simply amazing to see how many peo- 
ple think they're invincible, walking 
around ouldiwrs with their coats open, no 
hats or scarves - and all in the name of 
"cool". Gotta be "cool". Not caring 
whether they get a cold or not because 
they know if they do get sick, they'll just 
see a doctor and go on with life as usual, 
which most likely involves spreading it to 
others in the process. 

How arrogant! If these select idiots 
choose to gamble their health to germs 
which, unhl this century, could wipe out 
classrooms full of kids in just one cozy 
afternoon then should at least show a little 
more common sense and responsibility 
then, say, Congress. 

When petiple go to school or work 
coughing, hacking and sneezing (and wip- 
ing their nose on the back oi their hand 
when no one's looking), it's nn mjusHce to 
those of us who give a damn about our 
health and are taking measures to a\ oid 
getting sick. 

Why dress warm? Why pay for car 
heater repairs? Why even shower in the 
morning? It seems like no matter where 
you go these days, there's always someone 
two tacos short of a combination plate 
who'll sit right by ya carrying upon their 
breath the means by which to make you 
miserable for at least a week or two. 

It's hard enough to avoid catching 
something, especially if you have children 
who cough and sneeze all day without any 
courtesy for others around them. 

So please, if you don't feel good, stay 
home, and don't be the obnoxious moron 
who, just this once, has to bring enough 
for the whole class. 

Who taught you how to drive, anyway?? 

Jon O'Brien • Tt»e Ed's View 

It s«?ems that in response to 
James Band's new movif 
■ Golden Eve," an awful 
lot of pei>ple feel thai their 
license to drive is a tu 
kill While Agent 007 is not a 
real person, you would think 
he's working at a liKal dri- 
ving school if you've been on 
the Illinois 53 Autobahn late- 

I've got nothing against 
one wanting to partake ui 
some spirited driving. I've 
got the pi>lice record to prove 
my love of speed What both- 
ers me IS the number of peo- 
ple who simply don't know 
how to drive sensibly I'm 
young enough to remember 
what a blow -ott m\ driver's 
education class in high sch«)l 
was It appears that most of 
us have either hritied the 
Department of Transportation 
road test offioals or have for- 
gotten what we were taught 
C>ne r«?eds only to look 
out a classrtxim window to 
se«' what 1 mean Harper's 

Public Safety Office's Daily 
Incident Report is clogged 
with accidents that occur in 
Harper's parking lots. On 
numerous vxrcasions the 
Public Safety officers have 
assisted the Palatine Police 
with accidents near the cam- 

Ask the student who 
pulled another out of his car 
because he misjudged a turn 
Or any of the people who feel 
it's their god-given nght to 
hog a 30-minute parking 
place all day (will the owner 
of the silver late-model Ford 
Probe who stayed there for 
over nine hours strait please 
move their vehicle?). 

Let's think about the 
awesome responsibility that 
we casually lefer to as dri- 
ving. Whether you drive a 
brown Ford Pinto with an 
orange d(H)r that is worth 
more m parts than as a whole 
or a $150,000+ Mercedes Benz 
S600 coupe, you are m charge 
of moving a couple thousand 
pounds of steel and glass at 
high speeds. While many of 
us pnde ourselves on getting 
a five foot vehicle through a 
four foot space with a couple 
inches to clear on Inith sides, 

a necessary skill if you ever 
venture into Chicago, we 
seem to forget that these are 
public streets that we need to 
share with others — not the 
Indianapolis Motor 

A large number erf 
senior citizens can be blamed 
for poor driving. You know 
the ones, the land yacht of an 
automobile merrily rolling at 
40 miles per hour down the 
toUway or the car that swings 
out into traffic without any 
regard to the other cars. Ask 
The Harbinger's Business 
Manager, who's Firebird was 
the victim of an elderly bdy 
who failed to get her late- 
model Lincoln Continental 
into the proper lane of traffic 
while turning, and caused 
over $400 in damage. What 
bothers me is that the old 
lady was so clueless she did- 
n't even know she did any- 

The next time you plan 
on cutting somebody off 
because you're running late, 
think twice and act properly. 
If you don't know how to 
drive, get off the road and 
quit risking the safety of care- 
ful drivers like me.

With Rabin gone, what price peace? 

T.W. Fuller. American Independent 

It may not be a total shock to 
hear that Yitzhak Rabin was 
ajoassinaled It may not e\'en be 
a total shock to hear that many peo- 
ple, outraged by his actions to give 
up control of the Gaza Strip. Golan 
Heights, and West Bank, cheered 
tor the gunman and praised him for 
his murderous deed. After all, 
what can one say, or thudc, about a 
man who <ugns away Urge portions 
of land to his and his people's 

Certainly no American president 
couW get away with such traitorous 

But it may well be that very 
tact which was overlooked. What 
conWctioas if must have taken lo 
endeavor upon such a task, know- 
ing how unpopular it would be. 

For years Rabin fought 
agaiast the Palestinians with one 
mtcntion - keep them out of Israel. 
Now in his later years, and as 
Israel's Prime Minister, his desire 
for peace outweighed anything else. 
He mellowed. 

Suddenly, land became incon- 
sequential. Why? Perhaps it was 

the many suicide bombings, duvals 
to kill and rekindle war, and the 
many casualties that he must have 
seen on television and in the news- 
papers on a regular basis. 

This infectious and continues 
disease that plagued his mind daily 
and nightly, causing him many 
sleepless nights One, of course, 
may only surmise diese scattered 
details But how far from truth are 

The alacrity in his manner to 
fwgotiate land for peace, under- 
standing speed's necessity, and his 
humble nature, (though not neces- 
sarily eager one), that allowed him 
to shake the hand of former enemy 
Yasser Arrafat, for whom he once 
haibored full animosity for, and 
which later won them both a Nobel 
Peace Prize, marked Rabin with 
intrepidity on one side, wfiile one 
the other caused much paroxysm 
and discontent among many of his 
own people. Some may go so far as 
to refer to his conducts as aberrant. 
Was it? 

War can sometimes be a 
headache, and if it persists long 
etKiugh may develop into a 

And while divvying up lands 
to compensate for peace might not 
have been the best of plans, (for it is 
opinionated now and forever), it 
was his vision of a peace accord 
between Israel and the middle east 

and the rest of the world that drove 
him to do it. 

He knew full well the bitter 
resentment and the hostility that 
bore down on him each and every 
day he lived; probably knew he was 
putting his own life in jeopardy. 

Yet he retiuined constant in 
his efforts to promote peace; never 
backed down, for what other alter- 
native could there be than war. 
And how many more decades or 
even centuries would it take; how 
may lives would be called to die for 
this cause known as rightful owner- 
ship that dates back ttvyusands of 
years; too long even to put an accu- 
rate date on. 

Now he's dead. No longer 
can he personally be an inspiration, 
a catalyst for peace. His dream will 
(Of should) survive for others to 
embrace. But there will be a price 

Rabin was Rabin. There can 
be no replacement for the real man. 

He had his own agenda, oth- 
ers will surely have theirs, and they 
may not comcide with his. 

At what price will his succes- 
sor(s) put peace? 

Will they execute prudeiKe; 
remain on the same course as 

How will these decisions 
affect the middle east (peace talks) 
and the rest of the world? 

How long must it take for all 
the answers to be given?

tdased II in the first place! 

After all, no matter how 
Ntii'ti-rid Congress is in their

can't very likely send tliem-

can they? 

And diey can't just 
send themselves home 
with .. . um . . oh ya . .

insufficient funds for 
their bar tabs and their

However, working 
without pay is an 
ophon, but It would set a 
precedent of — dare 1 say — 
responsibility of which the 
likes this land has never seen, 
causing all the restaurants on 
Capital Hill to slowly fold, 
causing hunger amongst the

tle people " who voted them 
into an office where they get 
paid for voting their own rais- 
es, but would now have to go 
out of their way to a nearby 
town for their after-session 
milk and cookies. 

Yep, we're sure lucky 
we've got Congress on our 
side. And hopefully in seven 
years, we'll have a balanced 
budget to deal with the rising 
cost of hypocrisy.

A personal foul was called against 
Harper, giving the taken the ball on

It was the fourth personal foul call 
on Harper. An earlier call in the quar-

However, they failed the extra point

University of Michigan stu- 
dent took a crucial step 
toward gaming back custody 
of her 4-year-old daughter. 

The Michigan Court of 
Appeals decided to reverse 
(udge Raymond Cashen's 
1994 decision to award cus- 
tody of Maranda Ireland- 
Smi^ to her father, Steven 
Smith. Cashen said the child 
would be better off with 
Smith because his mother-not 
a daycare employee-would 
look after her during the day 
while he attended classes at a 
local i.ommumt\: college. 

lenniier Ireland, who 
had custiKlv ot M.irjnda dur- 
ing the appeals process, 
brought her daughter to a 
daycare facility on the UM 
campus while she attended 
class. The Court of Appeals 
decided that Maranda had 
"thrived" in the care prov id- 
ed by staff members at the 
campus facilitv 

.After the divisum v%as 
announced, Ireland held a 
press conference v^ith lulie 
Field, her attorney, to express 
her happiness with the deci- 
sion "I feel like it is a huge 

burden that has been lifted 
off of my shoulders' " said 
Ireland, who is finishing the 
first semester of her juiiior 
year. "There's a lot of hope 
and a lot of joy and a lot of 
love that I feel right now." 

Although Maranda will 
continue to stay with Ireland, 
the court ordered a new trial 
to decidtxl whether Ireland or 
Smith offers the most perma- 
nent family unit. 

Maranda was bom in 
1991 while Ireland and Smith 
were students at Mt.

River, said Capl. Pepke of Ul 
Public Safety. Joyce's wallet 
and bag had been found 
along the river's banks. 

Two days later, Joyce 
telephoned Iiis parents that 
he was alive. The phone call 
ended a search of the river for 
Joyce's body, but launched 
problems for Kooima. 

Joyce, who faces no 
criminal charges, told police 
about his phony suicide 
scheme and that Kooima 
played a part in it. 

Police said that Kooima 
admitted that he knew all 
along that Joyce was alive. 
Kooima said that although 
Joyce had told him about the 
plan for the faked suicide the 
morning of his disappear- 
ance, he did not believe he 
would actually go thmugh 
with it 

The two have not spo- 
ken since the incident 

"We were best friends," 
Kooima said 

Kooima faces trial on 
Ian 19., 19%.

Lights on for Life" Day 

Wheieas last year, 16,W0 Amenciivs 
were killed And almost half a milliorv were 
iniuivd in impaired dnving crashes 7>>at's 
one death about every 30 minutes. Many ivetc 
innocent victims, not the impciivd driveis 

Whereas in rei-wit years. «Kiety has 
experienced a dramatic shift in altirude 
regarding? impaired driving, thanks to the 
combir»!d eWorts irf law enforcement and 
community groups. Society no lonjjer toler- 
ates thone who can choose to dnnk and drive. 
Whereas Amencaas will not tolerate the 
senseless death aiKl injury on our nation's 
roadways. Drivers arrested for dnving under 
the influence can expect no sympathy from 
the police, employers or neighbofs. Driving 
under the influence is unacceptable 

Whereas during the holidays. Harper 
College shidents and employees can take a 
stand against impaired drivers by joining taw 
enforcement, businesses, government agen- 
cies and private citizens in keeping their vehi- 
cle headlights on an they drive during the day 
on Fnday, l>ecember 15, 1 W5, to participate in 
"Lights on for Life," an observance designed 
to remember persons killed and injured in 
alcohol- related crashes and as a reminder of 
law enforcement's watchful eye on drunk dri-

The Harbinger 

President Thompson, where do we rate? 

The following is a reprint from the November 
30th Schaumburg Review: 

I would like to respond to and expand 
upon an editohai printed in the William 
Rainey Haipcr Cotkge atudcnt newspaper, 
Vu llrn H mm, which was icptinied in the 
nammi Rmm on Thimday, Nov. 16. 

the HaiMnger writer oommunicaMl 
that a better uae of the prapoMd Building W 
at Harper would be lo house noie naih 
and idence daiM* laiher than p e r for m ing 
arts and confcrencet fadlitiei. While admin- 
i st r al or a from both the lilt Sdtncts and 
Human Se r vi <: c » Division and the 
Tec hn ology, Mathematics and Physical 
Sdcnoe DMaion wish that all needs of aU 
students could be met at aD times, the ical 
world ptcdudes the aocooi^UiffleMs al 
this goal. 

Both divisions have the reputation of 
providing excellent education thrcni^ the 
math and idcnce courses they offer. The 
departments schedule, class offerings to 
maximize the opportunity for the pmt i M 
number of sitidents to be able to ri'gistlt 
and take advantage of the course oUttklg^. 

The schedule is arranged to maximixe 
the fullness of the classes, and times and 
wibers of sect io n s and scats aic adjusted 
on a semaMm bisas to mintmixe the number 
of open scats indaasesat the end of legis- 
traUon. Titia method of departmental man- 
igsinrnt inn— ata adocalienal opportunity, 
exceiknee and financial le a p o n sih iiity. 

The coUegt? applied to the sate of 
nhnois through the dlinais Oxiununity 
College Board for $6.5 miUiun in funding 
for a new multipurpose buikhng. The pro- 
posed facility wjH cncoapaaa basacaHy two 
hinctiorw A p et i ott pi iig Mti fadlUtf and an 
instructional conferefwe center. The S6.5 
million would be funded from sate funds 
based upon credit that was owed to Harper 
from previously locally funded pr p i ec ts. 

The original request for this funding 
was made to the Illinois Community 
College Board in 199], That request was 
baaed on the master plan of the college and 
included a performing arts/ teaching facility 
and an art gallery 

After considefing the aiiMiunt of cred- 
it owed to Harper by the slate, we were 
encouraged by the Ulinois Community 
College Board to revise our proposal. The 
cuneni 48,18fr4quaie-foot Building W pro- 
posal was approved by ICCB in 1993 and 
the art gaUery was refdaced by an instruc- 
tional confeiciKe center. 

This change responded to the success 
of the corporate services division, whose 
billings have doubled each year since it was 
formed. Funds from corporate services aie 
RinveMed in the college in order to expand 
the oficrings and capabilities of that divi- 

The ICCB-approved ptoiect proposal 
resulted in the release of S3SO,000 in plan- 
ning money to the college. The Capital 
Development Board directed the college to 
begin the architect-selection process, which 
was completed at the August 1995 special 
Board of Trustees OMieting. 

The funding request is now in the 
hands of state Le^slature. It is our hope that 
funds will be made available for capital pro- 
iects this spring so that we can continue to 
plan for the educational needs of this com- 

The registrabon staff continues to try 
creative and effective procedures to mini- 
mize registration lines. 

Other than making sure students in 
line are physically comfortable (by allowing 
access to the buildings and providing secu- 
rity), the first-come, first-served policy of 
picking up registration cards continues to 
be pevoeived as the fairest method, accord- 
ing to a recent survey of current students. 

The William Rainey Harper College 
Board of Trustees, with ongoing input frcnn 
the faculty and staff of the college, is com- 
mitted to carrying out the mission of the 
ooUege — to provide excellent education at a 
reasonable cost, promoting personal 
growth, enriching the community and 
meeting Ae needs of a changing world —

Managing Edi tor / News Editor 

When the president of a school disagrees with points 
made in their institution's student publication, why would 
that president bring his side of the story to an outside source 

In recent weeks, there have been conflicting viewpoints 
between the Harbinger and Harper College President Paul N 
Thompson, alonj; with the parties involved in the construc- 
tion of Buildmg W, concerning ways in which Harper College 
should spend funds for campus expansion. The battle ol 
words, in part, has been made public in local issues of The 
Pioneer Press. 

The Harbinger editorial staff wrote an "Our View" con- 
demiung the registration process and the practicality of 
Building W in the Nov. 27 issue. The main points touched on 
in the article were the need for math and science space on 

Thompson responded to the editorial, not to The 
HarbingcT directly, but to Pioneer Press in the form of an essay 
(see related story below). 

Patty Roberts, Community Relations Manager to the 
president, said, "We used The Harbinger editohai to send a 
message to the community about Building W and registration. 
It was a good opportunity to set the record straight." 

Roberts acknowledged that a response should have 
been sent to The Harbinger ; however, she said, it was her over- 
sight that The Harbinger was never contacted. 

"It's all my fault," Roberts said, " He (Thompson) 
planned to respond to The Harbinger, but due to the Pioneer 
Press deadline I sCTit his response to them first." 

Even the Managing Editor of Pioneer Press's 
Schaumburg Review Robert Loerzel said "We were curious a.s 
to why Thompson would want to publish a response to a 
Harbinger editorial in our paper, rather than in his own col- 
leges publicahon ■■ 

Thomps«>n tailed to respond to requests by Harbinger 
representatives for an mterview. Therefore, his responses to 
the Oct. 27 editorial are being reprinted with permission from 
the Thursday, November 30th Pioneer Press. 

In Thompson's response, he quoted the results of an 
appointment card distribution survey given by the Registrar's 
Office He insisted the survey results showed the current 
method of registration increases the educational opportunity, 
excellence and finaiKial responsibility for Harper's students. 

However, it appears Thomfjson quoted a biased survey. 
The survey was only given to 300 out of Harper's 17,000 stu- 
dents. Also, the survey forms were handed out at 7 a.m., 
which doesn't take into account those who can't get to school 
that early. 

Apart from the debate about registration and the justifi- 
cation of building W, the question retnains the same. Hey, 
President Thompson, where does The Harbinger rate? 

Attention all shoppers: Which mall is the best of all? 

Dawt Pump / Julie Thompson 

_M*?'*1'I'9 Editor / News Editor 

With the hohday season upon 
us. It's tune to thmk about getting 
our Christinas shoppmg done oir^ 
this year Actu>g as guinea pigs, die 
Harbinger staff braved the crowds at 
local malls to rate each one on shop- 
pmg convetuences. 

Some of the important factors 
we look into account were 

Can you find a place to pjrk' 
WMl if your at Woodfield, probably 
not. Can you find your car after a 
shoppmg marathon? Definitely not! 

On the other hand, parkir\g at 
Stratford Square and Spring Hill was 
a littk- more accessible Randhunit 
has a fairly small parking lot that fills 
up quKkly . so get there early Spring 
Hill Mall had adequate parking. 
allowing for easy access without a 
long walk. 

Shoppmg and eatmg go hand in 
hand. So which mall has the best 
eats? Wocxifield was the undisputed 
winner, ranging from sit-down dining 
to fast food Stratford's. Randhurst 
and Spnng Hill all have food courts 
that place ab<wt half a dozen mini- 
restaurants in one place Stratford's 
selection of food't |udged the 
best but it had ample seahng that bet- 
ter than Randhurst and Spring Hill 

Which mall is the K-st it you 
havf children? Those of us on staff 
with children thought Stratford was 
the best It has some of the same 
stores as Woodfield without all the 
hassles. Spring Hill is nice because, 
with the exception of the anchor 
stores, it's all on one level, not two or 
three like most malts. 

Stratford is also much smaller 
than Wcxxj field making it easier to 
maneuver a stroller Besides, for the 
holidays the mall is ofienng $1.00 

ChooChoo rides for the kids 

The bottom line is, Woodfield 
seemed to come out on top over all. 
Even though parking isn't the great- 
est (unless you spring for the valet) 
atvi people are everywhere you turn, 
Woodfield had the biggest diversity 
of stores making it easy to do all your 
shoppmg at the same place Just be 

sure to go during the week because 
busses from other states ship shop- 
pers in on weekends. 

While your at Woodfield shop- 
ping don't forget to check out the new 
addition, featuring Noidstrom and a 
redesigned Lord & Taylor, and die 
recently -opened Rain Forest Cafe.

When does weekend drinking become a problem? 

I Almost half the 
college students in 
the United States 
are binge drinkers, 
according to a 
1995 Harvard 
School of Public 
Health survey of 
17,592 college stu- 
dents from 140 
colleges nation- 
wide. Here is the 
story of one week- 
end binger. Her 
name is Katie. 

By Jennifer Smith 

Coll ege Press Servic e 

Huddled in tfie comer of a 
small apartment, oblivious to 
the chaos around her is 
"Katie," a University of 
Kentucky nursing student. 
Psychedelic lights surround 
her, adding a tripping effect 
to the room. Gyrating bodies 
crash agaiiwt each other 
seemingly al lightiung speed. 
The smell of beer and sweat 
intertwine with cigarette 
smoke and fog from a huffing 
smoke machine in the back of 
the room. 

Every once in a while, 
people come over to "Katie's 
Corner" to make sure the 
petile brunette is breathing. 
She has already had eight 
beers. A friend offers Katie 
another swig of his mixed 
drink— called a suicide. 

Katie is not alone. 

Almost half of the col- 
lege students in the United 
States are binge drinkers, 
according to a 1995 Harvard 
School of Public Health sur- 
vey of 17,542 college students 
from 140 colleges nationwide 

After 20 minutes in the 
comer, Katie opens her eyes 
and wonders how she can get 

more alcohol. Grinning slow- 
ly, she goes to greet the guy 
she thinks brought her to the 
party. A few stumbles later, 
Katie bumps into an old 
friend from high school who 
she hasn't seen in two years. 

He asks f>er to dance, 
and they stroll silently 
toward the gyrating masses. 
After a few twists and turns, 
Katie, who will turn 21 next 
year, manages to maneuver a 
plastic cup of Killian's Red 
from his hands and into her 

A few more swallows, 
and her dancing becomes less 
rigid. The girl who origiruiUy 
sat in the comer because she 
doesn't dance very well 
becomes the grunge music 
ballerina. As the beat 
changes, her partner's body 
moves closer to Katie's. His 
hands slide from her waist to 
her butt. He tightly presses 
f>er body to his. She doesn't 
seem to mind. After the song 
ends, their danang doesn't. 
Their dancing turns to kiss- 
mg-slowly at first and gradu- 
ally more intense. 

At her request, he gets 
her another beer In the 
amount of time he's gone, she 
finds another "old fru-nd ' 
Like an instant replay, the 

scene happens again with the 
next guy Except, when the 
song ends, they leave the 
party together. 

Battle Of The Binge 

Katie said she is far 
from the average alcoholic. 
She has a 3.78 grade-point 
average, a boyfriend and a 
stable family liife. 

But Katie is a binge 
drinker. She can even recite 
the definition of her affliction. 

"The consumption of 
five or more drinks in a row 
on at least one or more occa- 
sions," she reads from one of 
her health textbooks. "That's 
pretty accurate. Five [drinks] 
get me a good buzz going. 1 
can relax then." 

According to the 
nahonwide Core Alcohol and 
Drug survey of 56,000 college 
students, binge drinking con- 
tributes to a broad range of 
problems tor college students 
including memor)' loss, trau- 
ma, date rape, vandalism and 

The study says drink- 
ing is the No. I health concern 
on college campuses. 

Dr Tim Nolan, director 
of student mental health for 
the University Health 

Service, said student drink- 
ing is a complicated issue. 

"\'es, one person may 
experiment with alcohol-and 
this is perfectly natural in a 
college environment-but this 
experimentation often can 
lead that person into negative 
thii%s like hurting them- 
selves and others or having 
unprotected sex." 

Alcohol also has been 
associated with missed class- 
es and poor performaiKe rat- 
ings on tests and projects. In 
the Core group's survey, col- 
lege students who reported 
the lowest grade-point aver- 
ages consumed an average of 
I 1 alcoholic beverages a 
week, while those who 
reported mostly Ns had less 
than three drinks per week. 

Nolan said most sur- 
veys he has read on binge 
drinking show that bingers 
are not just hurting them- 

"They show very dear- 
ly that non-bingers are affect- 
ed-they are harassed, abused 
to some extent," he said.

Vinny & 007 big winners 

Susan Rademacher • Oin and a movie with Suz 

Vinny 's and 

"Goldeneye" each 

get two thumbs up 

from our Harbinger 


Wooiifield Mall needed a iresh 
new Italian restaurant — Vinnys 
Family Style Italian Resaurant 
is just that. The portions are large enough 
to nuke any Italian grandmother proud 
Fresh is the word at Virmy's For all of 
you garlic lovers, Viiin\ \ uses the real 
thing. Powden>d garlu: is nowhere to be 
found. Vinny's al.s<.> Lx-lieves that )OU 
can't put enough cheese in a dish 

Our meal began with a basket of 

Vinny's freshly baked 

bi«ad. the basket was 
overflowing with three 
different types of bread. 
It c<xisisted of Italian 
sourdough, Focaccia, and 
garlic bread. 

The bread was fol- 
lowed by Vinny's dinner 
salad with Virmy's house 
dressing. The salad was 
brimming with red 
onions, tomatoes, and 

At ttlis point, we 
were completely stuffed, and we hadn't 
even gotten to the main course. The 
main course was well worth the wait. My 
Managing Editor and I had ordered from 
the lunch menu, and specified t}\e regular 
size entrees. Vinny's also has a humon- 
gous siie From what I've seen of the reg- 
ular lunch size, the humongous dinner 
size must be enough to feed a ftxvtbaU 
team! Just to give you an indication of the 
size diffeterues, the spaghetti and meat- 
balls is $7.75 for the regular portion on 
the luiKh menu ($8.95 for the dinner 
menu) and humongous is $15.95 for 
lunch (same for dinner). 

We sampled the spaghetti and 
meatballs along with the baked ziti and 
sausage. Both meals were outstanding. 
[X>ggie bags are the norm at Vinny's, 

where the service is friendly and prompt. 
The atmosphere consists of the traditional 
red and white checkered table cloths, and 
the feeling of a sidewalk cafe in a small 
Italian village. In the background there's 
the music of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, 
and other easy listening favorites. 

This week's movie selection is none 
other than Bond, James Bond. 
"Goldeneye" is definitely a Bond movie 
for the 90's. Pierce Brosnan is as close as 

you can get to Sean Connery 

as the martini drinking 
British secret agent. 
Brosnan's 007 energizes ttie 
Ian Fleming hero following 
Tunothy Dalton's lackluster 
portrayal of the man who is 
licensed to kill. 

"Goldeneye" has all of the 
trademarks of a Bond 
movie. It has Bond girls, 
gadgets, and bad guys who 
want to rule the world. The 
Russian computer analyst 
who helps Bond is a typical 
Bond babe with or>e exception. This Bond 
babe is allowed to show off her brain as 
well as her body. 

The chick to look out for is the for- 
mer Russian Army pilot. This gal is every 
man's nightmare— she crushes men with 
her thighs. There's a scene where she 
shoots up a room full of people. She 
appeared to be having a sexual experi- 
ence as she emptied the rounds from her 
gun. Her last name is Onatop, which rep- 
resents another Bond tradition. At lease 
one character has a rather unique name, 
although "Goldiinger"'s Pussy Galore 
still tops the list. 

Brosnan has recently signed a eon- 
tract to play Bond in at least two more 
films. On a scale of 1 to 10, "Goldeneye" 
gets an 8.

Our View 

'Tis the season to 
be fortunate 

As the semester draws to a close, 
there's a certain feeling in the air around 
campus. Festivities to celebrate the holi- 
day season are ail around. The brisk 
north wind has replaced shorts and 
shirts with overcoats and boots. And 
students everywhere are gearing up for 
the mother of all tests, the final exam. 

As you breathe that sigh of relief 
after walking out of your last final, 
think about what you've accomplished 
this year. Did you do everything you've 
set out to take care of? Hd\ e vou set 
goals for 19%? Take some time to give 
thanks for your good fortime. Things 
that we take for granted, such as as the 
right to vote or sleeping in a warm bed 
are little more than dreams for far too 
many people around the world. 

19% brings several events to UK)k 
forward to: the Summer Olympics in 
Atlanta, February 29th, presidential 
elections, and much more. Some of us, 
including Harper, even get a new tele- 
phone area code. 

Take care. Harper. From everyone 
at the Harbinger, have a festive holiday 
season and a prosperous new year. We 
look forward to seeing you in 1996!

Holiday shopping nightmares

between a memorable hiili-

to show a driver's license or

DRINKING: Knowing when to say when

studies reflect campus 

"We've carefully 

iwirwed studies from big 
Khools, aiKi we have copies 
of them," UK Dean of 
Shidents David Stockham 
said. "We use them as our 
sources of information. We 
believe the pattern lassodal- 
ed with drinkmg) are simi- 

UK has made ^teveral 
attempts to address these 

In 1988, the UK nrviacd 
portions of its Alcohol Policy. 

The policies became 
more speciin as to where and 
when drinking on campus ts 
appropnale Alcoholic bev- 
erages are not permitted in 
dawfooins, laboratories. 
offices, resideiKe halls, athlet- 
ics events and all outdoor 
areas on campus 

Also, the policy sjys 
housing corporations that 
supervise on-campus greek 
chapter houses are supposed 
to establish rules that are con- 
sistent with local laws and 
icgulations. Those house cor- 
porations also are respoiMiM* 
for ensuring compiiance by 

In confunction with the 
policy's opening statements 
to "promote akohd educa- 
tion and counseling pro- 

grams," Stockham said the 
university has encouraged 
student groups to create 
forums cm related issues 

Also, the university 
offers a new short course 
with workshops and sp«.idl 
speakers describing jlcohol 
and its consequences The 
program is called On- 
Campus Talk About Alcohol 

For students who 
believe they may have a 
drinking problem, Nolan 
suggested several options for 
seeking help on cjmpus He 
said students may gc u> the 
University Health Vrvices m

added that the community 
has several sources, including 
help groups such as 
Alcoholics Anonymous, Ala- 
noo and Ala-teen. 

The Morning After 

Katie wakes up in a fi>r- 
eign bed m a dark room. The 
only sign of morning she can 
discern is the blmking red 
9-.4S on the alarm clock next 
to her. Katie's head pounds, 
her mouth feels dry. She 
leaves the steeping man next 
to her with as mudh silence as 

she can muster in her present 

"I know I didn't have 
sex with him," Katie says a 
few hours later. "I shll had 
all of mv clothes on when I 
woke up and he did, too We 
must have |ust passed out 
together " 

Katie still dix-s not 
know who the man she woke 
up with is or what happened 
between them. 

After someone 

descnbes her state the night 
befori" lo Katie, she says this 
is not the first time She even 
admits that it ^'rob.ibly is a 
problem," but it will "proba- 
bly happen .igain 

Two weeks later. Katie 
is seeking help at j regional 
rehabilitation center follow- 
ing an overdose of sleeping 
pills and muscle relaxants. 

She acknowledges that 
the drugs were definitely a 

But she still doesn't 
think that drinking on the 
weekend is "that big of a 
problem" for her 

"Drinking is just an 
easy way to forget all of tfie 
stuff that has happei^ in ttie 
course of the week-you know, 
grades and classes and family 
and stuff," she said. "It's rK>t 
like I drink all of the tinie. I 
do it on tf>e weeketwls only."

• Always keep the vefiicie gas tank more than | 
half lull, 

• Keep an emergency road kit In the trunk 
which should include jumper cables, flan's, blanket 
and some non-peridiable food, such as ccxikiis, 
crackers, etc 

• Keep your vehicle well tunt^J and winterized, 
which includes ,jii .idequate level of anh-tiee/e to 
proti>ct the vehicle to -40° F. 

• Always lower your speed lo compensate for 
winter driving conditioi«.

Flu bug continues to spread 

By Liza Roclw 


Forget the socks and the under- 
wear This holiday season's number 
one must unwanted gift is one that 
kot'ps en giving — influenza. 

The C fntors h*r Ui-rfMst- Control in 
Atlanta said that b\ mid-Dt»CpmK"r 
Influenza type A virus -more com- 
monly known as "the Ifu'-has 
reached epidemic proportions in the 
nation. Twent\-nme stales n-ported 
regional or widespread influenza-like 
illness (ILI) in mid-December and the 
virus' strength remained constant as 
of the first week in January. 

Nancy Arden. the CDC's chief of 
innuen/aepidemmlogy. said states in 
all areas of the nation have been hit 
hard by the flu and there is no way to 
tell when Americans will see relief 
from the virus, which is characterized 
by fever headache, body aches and 
throat soreness 

Dr. Marv Gardner of the student 
health center at Northwestern 
Universit\- said students came pour- 
ing into the office as soon as they 
came back from break on )an. 3. 

Gardner said he noticed a consid- 
erable rise m flu cases ever since stu- 
dents returned back to the university 
from Thanksgivmg break. 

But things could be worse, said 
Gardner, who added that the flu epi- 
demic has not yet led to "standing 

room only" in the waiting room. 

"When it kxiks like a rock concert 
in here, you know you have a prob- 
lem," he said. 

Doctors say that the flu soastm 
seems to have had an early peak this 
year, starting sometime in mid 
December, rather than the later part 
of lanuary But, they caution, two 
more straircs of influenza will most 
likely .show up before the flu season 
ends in Apnl. 

College campuses are breeding 
grounds for many illnesses because of 
the close quarters associated with a>l- 
lege life. Plus, said Gardner, college 
students tend to travel fwavily during 
the holiday seas<;)n and bring back ill- 
nesses to the campus from all over the 

While the CDC recommends that 
people get an influenza vaccination 
each October or November, Gardner 
said that it's not too late to get a flu 
shot and spare yourself from the 
remaining strains of the virus. The 
shot takes a lew weeks to become 
active in the body, but Arden said the 
vacnne has been shown to prevent 
illness in about 70-90 percent of 
healthy adults younger than 65 years 
of age. 

Without the shot, the only way to 

avoid catching the flu is to stay away 

from everyone, Gardner said. Also, 

the immune system oju-rates better if

Our VJevs 

Look beyond New 
Year's resolutions 
for success 

Making New Year's resolu- 
tion's year after year seem to get 
old extremely quick. Most peo- 
ple use these to try to make him- 
self/herself a better person, by 
trying to lose weight, do away 
with drinking, trying to quit 
smoking or to do more in less 

Being a student, don't get all 
caught up in these resolutions, by 
making one to do better in school 
this semester. The average per- 
son holds to their resolution for 
about three weeks That would 
be hmm.. about the hme of the 
first quiz or test. 

Not passing a test or quiz 
could get you caught right back 
into that rut. LcK>king in the mir- 
ror, seeing yourself going in that 
downward spiral L'suallv lea\ - 
ing you nvure frustrated than 

Pass or tail, that once set reso- 
lufK>n will be forgotten through- 
out the semester But don't for- 
get about all of the great pro- 
grams the sch<.K)l offers to help 
vou succeed. Use them through-

Progress? Or just another wrong number? 

jon O'Brien 

L uick quiz; what's your 
larea ccxle? Ameritech tvas 
begn blowing its horn 
Utely'3bi)ut the handful of area 
codes that wv will be forced to 
deal with in the coming months. 
Those of you in the northwest 
suburi>s, including dear ol' 
Harper, will be in area code 847, 
while anyone in DuPage county 
wUl be in aim code tM starting 
later this year 

But wait. It gets better' 
Chicagoans who aren't in the 
downtown area will also be get- 
ting a new code next year' And to 
top It all tiff, anyone in Cook 
County who is served by the 
Roaeile switching station (parts of 
Schaumburx, Elk Gro\ e, and oth- 
ers) get a whole new telephone 
number to deal with' 

A more logical approach 
would have been to switch all of 

this equipment to its own cixle(s) 
but noooDoo, that would make too 
much serwe- We can thank the 
many pager and cellular phone 
service providers for lobbying for 
this hodgepodge of numljers. 
For some reason tlwy felt that 
placing cell phones, pagers, 
modems and fax machines in a 
dedicated area code was discnm- 
inahng against them, nevermind 
that it's already done this way in 
New Yt>rk Cit\ 

Or maybe converting to an 8- 
digit number by tacking a zero 
onto existing telephone numbers, 
though this would be a hassle to 
the phone company (parish the 

Or how about Ameritech 
working with the various sub- 
urbs to lay down a ID-year plan 
to accommodate for the need for 
phone numbers' If Ameritech 
had thought this whole thing out 
correctly we would have known 
alx)ut the impending contusion 
years ago and would have had 
more time to ad|ust lor it. !V1y 
home phone number is changing 
in a matter of davs and I didnt 
know what it was until a couple 

weeks ago — hardly enough time 
to get the word out 

I predict that by the year 2000 
we'll go by lO^ligit phone num- 
bers — automatically including 
the area code will be a necessity 
it anyone wants to get through. 

What I really love is all of the 
money, our money, being used 
for the phone company to blow 
off on pet projects like television 
and radio commercials, and cable 
television service. But where else 
can we go to get telephone ser- 
vice? If Ameritech makes a mis- 
take, we suffer the con-sequences. 
We aren't completely helpless, 
though. The Citizen's Utility 
Board, affectionately known as 
C.U.B., has been fighting for the 
rights of consumers for years 

Another inten-sting prospect 
IS that AT&T is hying to get its 
fcxit m the local phoiw .service 
dixir. It's too early to say if this 
will improve things but 
Ameritech has been balkmg 
about it from the start. Some 
change would be better than 

Where's my phone book...

Rommel put Harper up 54 53 by sinking 
two frw-throws with IH N«vonds left in the

Chrlsta Rommel eyes the layup. 

Hawks' basketball team and the 
Hunny have one thing in common 
a; they keep going, going and 
gomg. .. 

With only seven players on the team, each 
man sees an average of 38 minutes of action 
in each game. Leading the way is freshman 
center |eremy Roach(6'9"), who is averaging 
14 points and 12 rebounds a night. 

After losing a handful of players to grades 
and transfer, head basketball coach Ron 
Cregier put the call out for basketball players. 
Answering the call were Tony llurd, Chris 
King, Marquis Martin, and frank Piersanti. 

Tlie Hawk.s opened conference play Jan. b 
with a new limk, but not a whole lot of luck. 
Thev\ e dropped three games to go 0-3 in the 
conference and 3-13 overall. 

Triton w.i'. the opponent for the first game 
of conference play. The Hawks lost the game 
Ht>-77 at h(>me despite leading 46-31 at the 
half on Chris Kings three 3-pointers. 

With 13; 11 left in the second half Chris 
King fouled out forcing Harper to play with a 
one man bench to Triton's eight

Harper made the Chaparrals work for the 
72-*6 victories despite being short a man. 
Sophomon' John Nikolaros sat out a one

"Our government is 
proposing to regulate the free 
exchange of ideas," reads 
another "If is as if librarians 
could be sent to jail simply 
because a child might come 
across the King )ames Bible, 
or works by Norman Mailer 
or J.D Salinger on the

The ACLU cor«ideis the 
Telecommunications Bill

threatened to sue Congress if 
it becomes law. "Congress is 

making it ever more clear 
that we will have to turn to 
the courts to uphold free 
speech in the promising new 
medium of cyberspace," 
ACLU Associate Director 
Barry Steinfiardt said. 

Goodman agrees. "The

Our View 

Who's going to be 
paying for the 
Bears to stay? 

Governor Edgar, Mayor Daley and 
Michael McCaskey, you are not getting 
our vote or money for the proposed 
.Chicago "McDome " Stadium 

There is no logic behind raiiing 
taxes for a spoiled rotten immature 
brat like McCaskey, who or\ly wants to 
make his wallet fatter, and raising 
taxes in the suburbs to help Chicago 
cope with the burden. 

Mayor Daley, you need to look no 
further for the money because it's 
right under your nose— in your cor- 
rupt school system. Who's this 
month's superintendent? 

Within the last five years the city of 
Chicago has seen the rise of the "new " 
Comiskey Park and the UnitiHi Center 
and the fall of two of the most historic 
buildings in sports: Comiskey Park 
and the ChitJgu Stadium. 

Yes. it did take the threat of moving 
to hlorida to keep the White Sox, but 
the home of the Bulls and Blackhawks 
was built using sntart business tactics 
and corporjtf 'iponMT-.hip from 
United Airlmt-v 

McCaskey, take your Bears to 
Chicagoland, IN or to the merry land 
L)i OZ. But don't come back crying to 
m when you realize you're losing 
money because you still |u>tit\ 
raising our taxes.

To make the computer situa-

us to hear atxiut out-of-distnct

to customer sere ice was what 
helped us win a lax referendum 
for a new building in 
November's elections Do you 
think Harper could rel\ on its

In 1W2 Harper 
I'resident Paul N 
Thompson jj^reed to 
Junate land on the north- 
west side of the campus 
for the center if Sipiera 
could i>btain the money 

"All the rattles in the 
world can't raisi- that 
kind of money," Sipiera 
said "so I decided to start 
my own group, not only 
for tfie planetarium, but 
to raise public awareness 

on how important sci- 
ence is in our lives " 

With his ideas in 
mind, Sipiera founded 
the Planetary Studies 
lourutdtion, a not-for- 
protit educational organi- 
zation that promotes 
studying the planets. 

Cin leb 10 the PSF 
held its annual dinner 
and charity auction. 
Among the guests 
attending the event was 
Kl- Vici' President James 
Plaxo who said, "The 

long term goal of the 
foundahon is to build a 
world class planetarium 
and science tacility at 
Harper to heighten 
awareness and advanc-e 
the public's knowledge 
of the universe."

tion "Science in the 24th

AASA and Latinos United to Graduating? 

sponsor concert in Building A 


In commmioration with Black History 
Month, the African Aim>ncan Students 
Association (AASA) will be having a concert 
on Tuesday. Feb 27 at 12pm in the Student 
Lounge ot Buildin;; A AASA Presidi-nt 
Bui)ker T. tones said that the concert will pro- 
vide entertainment as well as being an eye 
opener to all who don't know tho struRjifle 
that the "black man" has beun throufib Mnit- 
the t>egmning of time. 

"This concert will help to shed lij^ht on all 
who have contributed positively to the 
African American culture but haw never 
been recognized for ttwir contribution," he 

Tlw concert will address unification 

between minorities, since the Latinos United 
will be joining forces with the AASA to make 
this concert a success. The concert will fiea- 
ture various talents from both groups 
Selections include songs, dances and poems 
from the cultural aspect of African influeture 
on blacks in today's sixriety. 

When asked the aim and obfectivt- of the 
AASA. Jones said that his teaching to the 
group IS 'I can, 1 am." With this view he 
believes that when one knows where he 
comes from, and where* he is. it is inevitable 
that he will know where he will lie 

"We all need to be aware o( our history so 
that we can get rid ot all the bitterness, that 
embraces today's siKiety and this organiza- 
tion for the African- American students helps 
us to addn>ss this issue." 

St. Josepli Hospital to offer 
mammogram screening 

If you are a healthy woman over 35 who 
never has had a mammogram. The American 
Cancer SocicU- recommends that you have 
thLs simple lite saving procedure now Since 
one woman m nine develops breast cancer at 
some pomt in her lifetime, the urgency is real. 

Screenmg mammt>graphy involves taking 
two low-radidtion x-rays ot each bitvist These 
images are then interpreted b> a trained radi- 
ologist, and a report is sent to you It takes 
ortly a few minutes, and can detect breast can- 
cer as small as the period at the end ot this 

Early detection (18 mtmths sooner than a 

lump can be felt) not only permits treatment 
before the prtiblem becomes .serious, but the 
cure rate is 95 percent. Mammography can 
not only S4\e your life, but help you avoid the 
need for disfiguring surgery, too. 

You don't need to have been a previous 
patient of ours to receive this scnvning, but 
you do need to make an .ippointment at a 
tiinf convenient to you

AI«1 attending the dinner was Adjunct 
facnilty member Diane Sipiera. She teaches 
Space Shuttle living for children through 
Harpers Continuing Education Dept 
Sipiera said a planetarium would be an asset 
to the Harper Communitv' "What better way 
to let young people know what a tine college 
Harper is than having them take field trit>s to 
a planetarium here on campus^" 

Thompson said th«- college can not lund 
the building of a science center nght now 
because it's |ust tini expensive "The plani-- 
tarium IS low on our list oi priorities, " he 

There is a piopowal pending now for the 
reiwvation of exi.sting building spaces on 
campus. But Sipiera said, ' ,\thletics got 
building M, Liberal arts got builduig 1 ^ 
when do the httle guys get something^" 

The current plans include an auditorium 
that would seat 200,01M people "It would be

we need the support of the community and

LSU athletes score a victory off field 


BATON ROUGE-Female athletes have 
won a victory at Louisiana State University, 
although it's not cm the playing field. 

US Distnct Court )udge Rebecca Doherty 
ruled Jan 12 that LSU sexually discriminates 
agamst its female athletes by not supporting 
tntercoUegute teams such as women's soccer 
and fast -pitch s<:)ftt>all 

The school, found m liolation of Title IX of 
the Education Amendments of 1972 that pn:>- 
hibits sex discrimination at federally funded 
institutes, was given 20 days to come up with 
a plan tfut complies with the law. 

University spokesman Jim Crain said the 
athletic department is "working their butts 
off" to come up with a plan to present to the 

judge. The department has already hired a 
Softball coach and plans to start a team in 

The lawsuit was started by five female stu- 
dents in 1994. Doherty did not order the 
school to pay monetary damages to the stu- 
dents the discrimination was negli- 
gent, not intentional. In her decision, she 
wrote that the violation resulted from a>nhi- 
sicm about the law, "arrogant ignorance ... and 
a remarkably outdated view of women and 
athletes " 

Doherty also wrote that the university 
"remains unaware that females who partici- 
pate in varsity sport are athletes who happen 
to be female and not females who happen to 
wish to be athletes." 

Students go as cave men for a day 


CANTON, N.Y— In a 
throwback to ancient times, 
St. L.awrence University 
anthitfpotogy students fash- 
toned stone toots then carved 
up a deer for a clasa feast. 

Associate Prof lofui 
Barthelme said the idea 
behind his course 

"Neanderthal; Fact, Fiction 
and Fantasy" is to teach stu- 
dents about the origins of 
modem pec^le and clear up 
"caveman" stereotypes. 

"More and more wc know 

now that [Neanderthals] 
were very, very intelligent 
and very human-Uke he said, 
not stooped hairy men that 
grabbed women by the hair 
and pulled them into a cave." 
Students learned the intri- 
cacies of stone toolmaking, 
then used their new tools to 
dehide a deer and remove its 
mafor joints. The deer had 
been killed by poachers and 
given to Barthelme, a sea- 
soned toolmaker, by wildlife 
But instead of cooking the 

meat over an open hre, stu- 
dents turned it over to the 
school's food service. 

"It was about 23 degrees 
outside so we decided not to 
do that," Barthelme said. 
All but one student, a vege- 
tarian who also did not take 
part in the butchering, 
enjoyed the venison meal. 
Barthelme said other stu- 
dents have carved goats, and 
a professor he knows at 
Indiaru University cut up an 
elephant using homemade 
stone tools. 

UC delays Affirmative Action ban 


OAKLAND-Days after the University of 
California's controversial decision to keep its 
affirmative-action ban, school officials 
anrumnced that the new admission guidelines 
will not start until the 1998 school year. 

The policy that prohibits the use of race 
aitd geiMJer preferences in hiring and admis- 
sions was to take effect in school year 1997. 
But according to UC President Richard 
Atkinson, that wasn't enough time to prepare 
new admission guidelines on CaUfomia's 
nine campuses. 

"Given the length and phasing of the 
jdmi.ssioas process, [the ban) will taJce effect 
for students seeking admission to the fall 1998 
entering class," Atkinson said in a Jan. 23 let- 
ter to the nine UC chanceUors. 

Students apply a year aivi a half before 

starting classes, so students applying this 
spring for the fall of 1997 will not be affected 
by the ban, he said. 

Atkinson's decision angered many UC 
regents, who voted last July to drop affirma- 
tive-action policies. Gov. Pete Wils<M\, who is 
a regent by virtue of his office, accused the UC 
administration of "dragging its feet" with its 
latest decision 

Regent Ward Connerly, who sponsored the 
ban, told reporters he was "furious" and that 
the delay was unacceptable. 

But UC Spokesman Mike Lassiter said 
Atkinson's decision "does not constitute a 
change in policy." The ban will start Jan. 1, 
1997, as planned, but by that time the admis- 
sions proc^ess for the class of fall 1997 would 
be over, he said. 

The delay would not apply to graduate or 
professional programs.

Federal budget crisis puts wrench in student aid awards 

CoUmii DvBsIm

WASHINGTON- With ever-pre- 
wnt government shutdowns and 
btidget talks, it's been a tough year 
for students and educators to deter- 
mine the fate of federal financial aid 

Direct loans Ptoll Grants, 

AmenCorps. At various times in the 
last lew months, the maior players on 
Capitol Hill have debated whether to 
cancel funding for these and other 
programs or to expand them Some 
legislators have wanted to cut back 
on hinding; others have argued to 
leave it as is. 

But with the temporary budget 
deal reached Jan 25 by the White 
House and Republican Cxngressional 
leaders, government ollicials have 
laid out a somewhat grim blueprint 
for education m the commg year

The Senate, which approved the 
House version of the provision on 
Jan. 26. rejected an amendment spon- 
sored by Democrats to restore $3.1 
billion in education spending to the 
budget deal 

David Merkowitz. director of pub- 
lic affairs at the American Council of 
Education, said politically, it's diffi- 
cult to gauge whether the 
Department of Education will be 
funded at or above 1W5 levels. 

"With the resistaiK-e on the level of 
spending we don't know if that's 
going to happen," he said 

He said the lack of a budget agree- 
ment has left financial aid offices at 
universities around the nation up in 
tfie air when it comes to developing 
financial aid packages. Without an 
approved budget, the Educahon 
Department has been unable to deter- 
mine funds tor Pell Grants and other 
programs. such as College 
WorkStudy. Perkins loans and 
Supplemental Educational 

Opportunity Grants. 

That is having a serious impact on 
student linancial aid, according to 
Judith Harper, interim director of the 
financial aid office at the Umversity 
of Michigan- Ann Arbor 

"It's sti hard to get-up-lo-the-

Schools tradihonally give students 
a financial aid package by March. 
"It's very important for students to 
know what their financial award will 
be so they can make a decision" on 
whether they can afford to attend 
school in the tall. Harper said. But 
this year, the budget crisis is making 
it difficult to estimate grant and loan 

Some finaiKial aid officers might 
still give out student aid packages in 
March but will emphasize that the 
final award depends on pending leg- 
islation. Harper said. 

Forty percent of Michigan's 36.000 
students receive financial aid. With 
the government shutdowns, some 
students never received their Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid. 
Others have sent in the forms, but 
processing has been delayed for sev- 
eral weeks. 

Sid HoUoway, associate director of 

the financial aid office at North 
Carolina State University, said his 
office has had "some trepidation" in 
plannmg financial aid packages. Like 
Michigan, about 40 percent of the 
school's 30,000 students receive finan- 
cial aid. 

He hopes the budget crisis will be 
resolved enough so that the 
Education Department will at least be 
able to operate at its 1995 budget. 

The uncertainty of what's happen- 
ing next m this "topsy-turvy" year 
frustrates him. "It's the craziest thing 
I've ever seen," he said. 

"It's all a lot moK tenuous this 
year' " Harper agrees. "We need to 
let the Congress know that its 
extremely important to have the bud- 
get settled for the sake of the students 
of this country." 

Many students and families are 
unaware of the impact the budget 
impasse is fiaving on financial aid 
offices, she added.

Her main goal was to protect 

women and children. 

Chapman shared her 
intelligence as a certified edu-

years as an elementary school 
teacher. Most importantly to 
us, she sponsored and enact- 
ed the bill that started com- 
munity colleges in this state. 
These are only a few of her 
dozens of acccomplishments. 

Chapman died last 
September, but her life will be 

far from forgotten. She has 
helped to change tf>e lives of 
many people. She managed 
to leave an impression on 
everyone she met. Chapman 
will always be remembered 
as a kind and generous

Harper had sex on the brain Feb. 13- 
16 thanks to Hwlth Servias' Sexual 
Awareness Week. Controversy has sur- 
rounded the Health Center's practice 
of making free condoms available to 
students. As part of Sexual Awareness 
Week, the center set up a table filletl 
with information ic|saiding condoms 
and their use. 

Many opponents of the condom 
giveaway believe that this practice pro- 
motes sexual activity. These people 
ignore the fact that the Health Center is 
is attempting to make sure that people 
who chooae to be sexually active are 
protected from disancs and unwanted

becoming a popular choice with young 
people in America. 

The maintenance of a healthy rela-

Awareness Week alao showing that sex 
is not the most important part of a rela- 
tior\&hip. Health Services does an excel-

appealing to teiecommunKa- 
tions businesses everywhere 
while throwing our first amend- 
ment nghts to the wind, signed 
the Communications Act of 19% 
into law two weeks ago. The 
main task the bill was to accom- 
plish was to spur telecommimi- 
cations development and knock 
down several regulatory walb. 

Unfortimately, a lot of other 
legislation had gotten tacked on 
dunng Its long red tape-saturat- 
ed journey to the lawlxtoks, not 
all ot which is in the general 
public's interest 

To address the issues raised 
by concerned parents about sex 
and violence on television. Bill 
and Co. have given us the V- 
Chip, an electronic chip that will 
be installed in all televisions 
built for the U.S. markit This 
chip will let parents decide what 
their children can and cannot 
view The beauty of this device is 
that it will let each household set 
its own limits as to how much 
seedy material can get through 
without interfering with other 


This IS an ideal stilution 
because parents can decide on 
what they want their children to 
view without hindering the 
viewing of anyone else. This is 
an excellent example of prob- 
lem-M>lving technology 

Unfortunately the same can- 
not be said for the Internet. The 
main building blcKks of the 
Communicahons Decency Art, 
which was tacked on to the main 
Communications Act several 
months ago. have survived to 
become law. Any content of 
questionable nature, such as 
profanity or adult-oriented 
graphics can carry criminal 

It seems that the same 
Congress and House of 
Representatives that thought the 
V-Chip was the solution to top- 
less bimbos with machine guns 
on "the tube" didn't feel the 
Internet was worthy enough for 
Its own version of this tecfinokv 

Why this lop-sided legisla- 
tion came to be is a question I 
cannot answer. It would seem 
logical that the same approach 
could be used in txith mediums. 
It would probably be more use- 
ful on a computer anyway, since 

most computers get replacec 
every couple years to keep up 
with ttxhnology. Most televisioii 
sets are heavily used for 
decade or so. 

Whatever you may view orl

It's about the free exchange ol

Why some ignorant individuJ 
als feel that communication

A few paranoid thoughts on Political Correctness 

rW. Fuller 
American Independent 

Often, in our struggle for a 
more idyll society; to right 
wrongs of Ifw past; endeavor 
to correct mistakes deemed harmful 
or ttut have retarded groups of peo- 
ple, we take measures to ensure im- 
tory does itot repeat itself. 

Wt may pass laws or amend the 
constitution to satisfy ttiis necessity. 
Sometiines, however, we invent new 

Political Concctness has gripped 
the 90's into a decade of rnm-perpen- 
dicular paroxysm and if an eiKl is 
near it looms within ihe center of a 
dense London fog slKnjldered and 
protected by all tfte catastrophes 
nature has to offer; quick tempered, 
hot headed, aiKl not easily swayed. 
Still, many believe if will tiecome 
passe by the end of the century. 

But while it lasts. Political 
Correctness plagues everyone it 
touches with its lank and sticky poi- 

son; try rubbing it otf and it works 
its way under your skin causing hell- 
ish itching and burning as it grinds 
into every f>ore in your body, also, 
no orifice is left undamaged. 

Why tfien does Pobhcal 
Correctness persist in our society? If 
it is such a nightmare, why not aban- 
don it? 

Because in its infancy it was 
laughed at; not taken as a threat; not 
scrutinized over closely. 

Because back then people 
believed it so ridiculous they 
tfuiught it could not possibly last. 

Now IT has become so powerful 
thai very few challenge ITs authority, 
especially when high-powered politi- 
cians arvd media moguls swear by IT 
and eiKourage ITs survival. 

IT has ensconced America and 
refuses to let up And also because 
most of us are blind to ITs danger. 

"IT'S still somethung to laugh at," 
we say, under our breath, paymg 
particular attention to where the air 
carries those words. It would not do 

to utter such blasphemies where 
there are high winds present. 

"IT'S not really a threat to our civ- 
ilization," we say, behind closed 
doors, triple checking to make sure 
all ninety-nine and a half locks are 
securely in place, knowing it is never 
enough, wondering how many are. 

"The day will come when people 
take a stand against this scourge," 
we say, twiddling our thumtis in the 
meantime, casting an uneven eye on 
our neighbor, who may be that per- 
son, who may be one of them. 

"I could be that person who orKe 
and for all slaughters IT," you trum- 
pet as loud as you can atop tfie f\igh- 
esf mountain peak, only then realiz- 
ing your folly, realizing your fate has 
been sealed, realizing what now 
must be done, so you throw yourself 
off, laughing sadistically at your new 
found freedom. For tliere is but one 
escape from IT. 

So you succumb to IT, knowing 
tf»e demonic realms from whence IT 
came. You cherish IT none-the-less. 

regardless of how religious 

You allow IT to brainwash you, 
control your mind, feed you 
thoughts you never dreamed. 

Because anj^ing IT has to offer is 
1000 times better than death, you 
convince yourself. 

IT. That is what you recite, taking 
special care not to speak ITs real 
name. Take an oath and sign your 
initials in blood to never stammer 
out any word close in proximity.. 
You know the word; political correct- 

There now, you've gone and said 
IT, after promising never to say it 
again IT senses that; you know the 

No super glue is strong enough to 
hold you from ITs grip; no govern- 
ment relocation program is cuiuiing 
enough to hide you from ITs all see- 
ing eyes; no underground railroad 
deep enough to harbor you from TTk 
long elastic arms. 

You are doomed for knowing IT 
exists. You know what must be done! 

Once upon a time the white man counted

The Very Right Retf'd 

Listen lo me now, good 
cfuklren of the faith, 
we Caucasians are 
rapidly becoming the minor- 
ity m America. Is there any 
reason to be scared? 

Of course there isn't, but I 
believe in this day aivl age of 
political correctness, the 
nghts of the average white 
male are overlooked. 

The white man today is 
viewed as a cold apathetic, 
devil slave master, who 
could give two cents about 
the needs and wants of 
minorities, cariitg only for 
himself and his bank 

Many white men are just 
the opposite They are very 
caring people, with a sense 
of accomplishment ai>d 

understanding and a love for 
human life. 

It's just that some people 
like their cliildish labels and 
don't care to fiiHj out about a 
persons past, their skin color 
or statishcal standing It 
makes you wonder who's a 
racist sometimes. 

The average white male is 
usually the one that takes tlie 
blunt of these biased opin- 
ions and imfair status quos. 

My good white brother, 
have you tried to find a job 
lately? It's tough, isn't it? 
Federal law demands that 
every place of business 
should have it's "fair" share 
of minorities and women. 

So if you have the qualifi- 
cations that the job icquiies, 
if their status quo is low on 
minorities or women, sorry 
Charlie, that person who 
may or may not have the 

qualifications ls getting the 

What about government 
assistance? There's r>o luck 
tfiere for the white man, 

My older brother's wife 
recently had a child My 
brother didn't have ii«ur- 
aiKe, so they applied for 
assistance. They still had to 
pay a good lick of money for 
what uncle Sam didn't pick 

I also read an article in 
tfie Chicago Tribune last 
Saturday about an African- 
American woman who has 
13 children and no visible 
sign of employin«it. 

Our Great White Fathers 
footed the bill for this 
woman to sit around and 
have babies who don't even 
bother going to school half of 
the time. Sounds fair to me. 

Why is it when a racial 
topic comes up, you ate told 
"not to go there" 

Why not? Sure, the 
comedians on Def Comedy 
Jam take pot shots at us all 
the time, but if the shoe is on 
the other foot, it's called an 
ethnic or raaal slur. 

You could possibly lose 
your job for that. Why is it 
taboo to say the word nig- 
ger? I'm often called Forrest 
Gump, or redneck, because 
of my thick accent— both are 
just as degrading. 

That's OK though, 
because I'm white. God for- 
bid you say the "N" word 
within an earshot of an 
African-American, chaiKes 
are you just started an alter- 
cation with someone you 
don't even know, and of 
course you are labeled a 

1 believe it all comes 
down to this; we ate all bom 
into this world with the 
same chances and opportuni- 
ties as the next person, so 
why put labels on ourselves 
and expect a larger piece of 
the American Pie? 

We need to stop looking 
at each other like it's a com- 
petition on who's better ttian 
the other. That is not what 
this country is based on. 

The best way to sum it up 
is with a quote from Neil 
Peart: "So tfie Maples 
formed a union and 
demanded equal rights, the 
oaks are just too lofty, we 
will nuke them give us light 

Now there's ik) mote oak 
oppression, for they passed a 
noble law and the trees were 
kept all equal with hatchet, 
ax and saw."

Poi Dog Pondering's Frank Orrall speaks 



P(>i Oog Pondering will br per- 
forming in the Building | Theatre on 
Friday. February 23 For thone of you 
who can't wait for the show, here's it 
little something to tide you over 

Tlie latest CD "Pomegranate" has 
sold 2(H copies at the Schaumburg 
location of Tower Records according 
' to Nuno Schmidt, who works at 
Towcr-Schaumburg When the 
signed limited edition pressings 
came out last fall, those sold extreme- 
ly quickly as well. Poi Dog Pondering 
also receives pfomincfit airplay on 
Chicago area radio stations, includ- 
ing WXRT and WCBR They are 
doing well in other areas such as 
Texas, Seattle, and Columbia, MO. 

Frank Orrall the band 
founder/singer/sungwriter was 
kind eiWHigh to have a few words 
with The Harbmgtr to let Harper 
know what to expect from the show. 

"We're sort of all over the map 
musK-ally." said OrralJ. Their instru- 
mental repertoire includes (but is not 
- limited to) guitars, trumpets, organs, 
pianos, saxophones, flutes, clarinets, 
drums, and basses. Orrall goes into 
the studio with sort of a ban>-baned 
version of the song, and the test of 
the band "fleshes the song out" This 
type of approach is unusual, but 
allo«vs for much more musical cie- 
aiivily. as is evident m the music on 

"Pomcgnuiate' wm wcoided on 
the bartd's own label, in a basketball 
gym. Orrall said that this type of

recording environment gave the 
band the freedom to reccxrd at all 
hours of the night, wWch helped bol- 
ster the spontaneity and creativity 
they are known for They experiment- 
ed with different sounds because 
they had the complete freedom, 
being able to record 
whatever, whenev 

If we were living In 

the Garden of Eden, it 

Jiwt wouldn't liave tfie 

•ame poignancy and 

deptli of living on 


•Frank Orrall 

Orrall got the 
thematic ideas for 
while in New York. 
There is a painting 
m the Museum of 
Modem Art called 
"The Expulsion 
from the Garden of Eden". In the 
painting, Adam and Eve had just 
been banished from the Garden for 
tasting the forbidden fruit, and they 
were being sent into the dark 
unknown. The painting touched 
Orrall in a very big way. 

"If we were living in the Garden 
of Eden, it just wouldn't have the 

same poignancy and depth of living 
on Earth— with heaven and hell on 
earth, I think that's sort of a neat com- 
bmation", said Orrall, 

"All of the things that have hap- 
pened to me in my life thai may have 
caused strife were all thuigs that 
pushed me to another 
pLii-e.. 1 look at these as 
giits because they 
helped me to learn 
along the way", said 

rhis outlook and the 
ability to learn and 
grow from stressful 
events has definitely 
shaped this latest CD. 
For example, not long ago saxophon- 
ist (and Orrall 's partner) Brigid 
Murphy was diagnosed with cancer. 
She is in remission now, and (thank- 
fully) doing very well, according to 
Orrall- "God's Gallipoli", on 
Pomegranate, was named after the 
World War 1 standoff on the Turkish 
peninsula, and thematically repre- 

sents the band's way of dealing with 
that situation 

Poi Dug Pondering considers 
Chicago to be its home, Orrall, origi- 
nally from Hawaii, says he really 
likfs the peoplf her«> and he feels 
a'allv ((iintortablt'. not to mention he 
('rtttTs the cold to the lexas sum- 
miTs When thfy an' playing in town, 
their stage show can include as many 
as twelve people 

Orrall enjoys playing live, partly 
because ot the fact that they are 
required to recreate live what they 
treated in the studio. Because this 
reproduction is so integral to the 
bands live show, showgoers can 
expect the unexpected, and the show 
promises to be an aural spectacle, 

Orrall takes the audience through 
at least three facets of the band's per- 
sonality—the playful side, the spiri- 
tual side, and the sensual side. 
Sometimes a visual artist is also pre- 
sent at the performances to enhance 
the aural experience The show 
promises to be an incredible show- 
case of musical skill and experimen- 
tabon, if "Pomegranate" is any indi- 

Musically, "Pomegranate" encom- 
passes many genres, from the dance- 
able '"The Chain" to the Doors-esque 
"The Shake of Big Hands", from the 
emotional "God's Gallipoli" to the 
extremely mellow title track. Even if 
you've already spent money on a 
ticket for the show, check between 
your sofa cushions and find money to 
buy "Pomegranate", (You won't be 
disappointed — cm a scale of 1 to 10 it 
deserves an II!) 

Tour through Dar Williams' "Mortal City' 



-Morul City", Dar WiUiams' fol- 
U)w up album to "Honesty Room", is 
an excellent new release. Her simplis- 
tic yet strong songwriting makes her 
CD an appealing listen, Williams' 
voice, although not anything extraor- 
dinary, goes along perfectly with the 
soft accompaniment of her acoustic 
guitar. The music itself ranges from a 
few upbeat songs to some sknver, 
moodier inelodies. 

Her strongest ability lies in her 
witty lyncs in songs like "Christians 
and Pagans" artd "The Pointless, Yet 
Poignant Crisis of Co-Ed" Dar's 
songs are stories that paint a picture 
from different aspects of life. She 

lings about everything from a past 
relationship to "mortal cities". The 
titte track "Mortal City" is a disturb- 
ing epic about a crisis in a dty: "She 
said what kind of people make a city 
where you can't see the sky and you 
can't feel the ground?" It starts off 
with her voice and a piano and then 
builds up dramatically as the story is 

She also incorporates instruments 
on this album such as the digeridixi, 
cello aiKl mandolin Folk musicians 
Lucy Kaplansky, John Prine and 
Eileen Ivets also contribute to this 
album. This album is not for every- 
one, but if anyone is willing to listen, 
"Mortal City" has a story to tell that 
is worth exploring.

letters o* intent lo play at the four-year school 

leading the way was quarterback Kevin 
Nawaaai who signed to pby at West Carolina 
In the fall. 

Nawarcai's football cancf was in limbo

Prior lo his injury, Nawancaf led the Hawks 
lo a 4-0 nKtnd with confeiwnce victories over 
niinois Valley and Grand Rapids. 

Nawarcaj's injury healed slower than 
expected forcing hun to miss the rest of the 
season. He had hoped to at least be cleaied to 
play in the Royal Crown Cola Bowl, but the 
doctors woukin t clear him to play

Harper's athletic program will kick 
into high gear with the addition of a 
women's soccer team that begins com- 
petition this fall. 

"There have been numerous 
inquiries ab*»ut siKcer from the student 
body," said athletics ctxirdirutor Ri>ger 
Bechtold. "We alsti wanted to increase 
the participation in women's sports." 

Bechtold wants to begin with a 
team of approximately 15 players that 
will practice on Harper's newly creat- 
ed soccer practice field. 

The women's team will comjiete on 
the stadium field that is also used by 
the men's stKcer team and the ftxjtball 

Assistant athletics director Martha 

Lynn Bolt contacted sdKX>ls around 
the country to get feedback on the pos- 
sibility of adding the fast paced sport 
to the women's atfUetic program. 

Bolt said that everyone she talked to 
was enthusiastic about the growing 
popularity of women's soccer. Harper 
will have s<ime very familiar competi- 
tion with teams from College of 
IXiPdgo, College of l^e County, and 
Moraine Valley. " 

Bechtold said, "More schools are 
thinking of adding it. There are also a 
number of four-year schcwls in the area 
that we could play" 

The search is on for Harper's first 
women's soccer coach. Bechtold is 
looking for oxp«?rience, an ability to 
work with student-athletes, and the 
time to spend on campus to make a dif-

Harper wrestling coach Norm Lovelavf 

Armando Calderon (118 ) led the way 
with an overtime wm in the champi-

Caldeion took the championship 24 
Mconds into sudden death overtime to 
become the first of six Harper wrestlers 
to qualify lor the national tournament in 
Bisfnarck. South Dakota. 

The Hawks walked away with three 
championships and four second place 
finishes on tfieir way to taking second 
place in the region. 

Lincoln College took first place by 
de<eahng Harper 104-95.5. The tourna-

"We lost three matches by one point 
each- The winner ot those matches was 
going to be thi' winner of the tourna-

Changes in store for the men's basketball program 

Sinan Rademacher 


An already rough season got 
rougher last wi-ek for the men's bas- 
ketball team when the reister shrank 
lo just SIX players and their coach 
turned in his resignation. 

Coach Ron Creiger turned his rt-s- 
ignation into athletics director Roger 
Bechtold Feb. 2. Creiger will finish 
out the season 

"He certainly will be missed as 
oui basketball coach He is a true 
professional He s a man of integrity 
and character He represented 
Harper with dignity and pride," 
Bechtold said of Creiger. 

Creiger recently earned his first 
N4C victory in five season as 
Harper's head coach "We weren't 
competitive for the first few years- 
This year, we are competitive, but we 
don't have the bench, " said Creiger 

Creiger s tenure at Harper has 
not been what he had fujped. but he 
leaves with a ptisilive attitude, 1 > er 
taWy had some good relation-ships 
with some of the players. They are 
people I'm pn>ud I coached " 

Creiger is l<x>king forward to 
spending more time with his three 
children and hopes to catch more of 
their games. 

Creiger '» last mtmm has been 
hlled with turmoil as his team dw m- 
dled to onlv seven players. Now his 
, team is down lo onK six players fol- 
lowing the departure of Frank 

Marquis l«artln handles Rock Valley's douWe-team defense.

'rhe 16 and 17 seeds in the region 
face off to see who gets a trip to the 
regional tournament Harper figures 
to be one of the teams in the shovv 

Creiger's team can play the press 
and the run. What they can't afford is 
to play a team that mixes up their 
defense with the press and the run. 

Harper's last regular season home Rock Valley was successful in 


handing the Hawks a full court press 
in the first half When Roach fouled 
out Rock Valley put Harper on the 

The run wore out the Hawks who 
were left with an empty bench. It 
also forced Harper to be conser\'a- 
live on defense- 
Harper has already launched a 
MMrch tor a new basketball coach. 
There is a possibility that Creiger's 
replacement would jom the faculty 
as a Health instructor in oreler to be 
more available on campus.

We have been through the

ize that nothing is possible if 
we do not stick together, and

Breast cancer. In her lifetime, one 
out of every eight women wUl get it. 
b there any thing a woman can do 
to prevent it? Perhaps Recent 
research indicates that diet, alcohol 
and other lifestyle choices may be 
linked to breast cancer. So making 
healthy lifestyle changes may 
reduce a woman's risk. However, 
thses studies are inconclusive and 
the cause of breast cancer is not 
known What is known is that cer- 
tain factors such as a family history 
of breast cancer, increasing age and 
never having a child can put one at 
greater risk. 

So what is a woman to do? She 
can do monthly self-breast exams 
and have her physician examine her 
I breasts regularly And if she is over 
35, she can get a mammogram. 
Mammograms can dectect a lump 
two years before it can even be felt. 
If breast cancer is detected early, 
W?o of cases can be treated success- 
fully. While it is not prosentuin, 
mammography can save a woman's 
life and maybe even her breast. 

On March IM4, Harper College 
Health Service and St Joseph 
HospiUl will bring their Mobile 
Diagnostic Services unit to campus 
and provide mammogranxs to stu- 
dents, employees, and aimm unity 
members. The mobile unit is staffed 
by paifessionals from St Joseph and 
will be kxrated in front of Building 
A. The service will be offered 
Monday through Thursday 
Advanced scheduling is requii«l, 
call MT/'iiZS-eOO ext.b268 for an 

appointment. The cost of the mam- 
ntogram is $65. 

The American Cancer Society's 
breast cancer screening guidelines 
are as follows: 

Women 35-40 yeais of age 
Baseline mammogram 

Women 40-49 years of age 
Mammogram every 1-2 years 

Women 50 and over 
Mammogram every year 

If you fuve any possible signs of 
breast cancer such as a lump, con- 
tact your doctor immediately 
Women who have had breast cancer 
or are at high risk for the disease 
may need more frequent exams and

I through music and dance? Under lhi» artistic direction ot AminiyiM I'.iv no, the 
Muntu Dance Company has been doinp ^u sini.e l'»72 through their rh\ thm> 
jnd love for their culture. Their "mission" is to inform and express the beautv 
.>t \lrican history. 

I>ie performance bttan with three drummers on-stage A picture of .•Mric.i 
vvas projected on to a screen in the background Bells, whistles and gourde 
with fHMiK were fieard in the distance Thri>e men and tour women danced 
and playtxl African rhythms. The- sound ot the l))emb<> drum carried through 
the entire auditorium and beyt>nd It was like entering another place; another 
continent. The rhythm was especially entrancing The dancers gathered on- 

I stage with commanding presence Fheir costumi-s were hrightK decorated 
with different greens, reds, yellows, and purples Shells and beads adorned 
their wrists and waists The audience wa^ captivated The Djembe drummers 
hit with such force, it Muinded as it thev had palms of stone 

Next came a l.iberian dance called the f unga in which the daiKers also 
sang. The DuiuJunt^i dance followed. In tfus dance, the women entered the 
stage with baskets of beaded necklaces and daivced around the drummers. The 
Lamban/Dombah dance was last It is a combination of two dances The 
Lamban originated in Mali, Guinea and Senegal It is a traditional dance The 
Dombah is from Mali and it means "Big Dance ' 

Among these dances, the performance was intertwined with insight about 
the Muntu DarKe Company The Djembe drummers explained the drum and 
its background They wanted to break the notion that they "beat on drums". 
They said that it took a lot of skill to play the Djembe drum. The dancers also 
told about the research goes into puttmg on a performaiKe. They try to 
learn all they can about African culture. 

Audience participation also played a part in the performance. The audience 
was asked to sing and resporid to some phrases It was entertaining and 
insightful to catch a glimpse of Afncan-American history. 


Muntu Dan Th«atre In action. 

However, it was only a glimpse; the performance lasted for an hour which 
was disappointing because it built up a lot of energy and it ended rather 

Overall, people liked the performance. Adeline Back, a teacher from school 
distnct 21 said, "It was excellent, they have so much respect for their culture." 
loseph Ward, a student at Harper College said, "It was on a scale of one to ten, 
a nine It was one of the best performances at Harper in months." Charles and 
Ted Danylak, alsc5 students at Harper called it a "superb" performance. 

The Muntu Dance Company did an excellent job of cducahng and portray- 
ing African-Amencan culture.

Justify a need to 
increase lab fees 

For the second time in three yean, the 
Harper Board of Trustees unanimously 
approved to increase lab fees. These lab 
feen tvill already accompany the new one 
dollar technology fee, the three dollar 
increase in tuitian, and the property tax 
increase that CocA County will be hit with. 

Also the board deoded to abolish the 
piflting fee and the transcript Ices, but 
added a registration fee. TMfticgiMration 
fee will take the place of the o0wr two 
Ims, but will not be used to fix die prob- 
lems concerning the registration piocess. 

How much mof\ey does Harper need 
goii^ into the next century^ 

It appears that one can never have too 
much money. Even when it comes to 

The propawd ConJerence Center may 
take the place of the current racquetball 
courts in Building M, and will be bringing 
in truck k>ad8 of money. 

Has anyone bottiered to check out the 
going rate of a confeicnce loom at the 
kxal hotels? The money won't be coming 
as (aiit as the school thinks it will. 
Conlerenc* rooms are only full on week-

Is the flat tax slanted to the rich? 

The Ed's View 

It one day is dreaded by more 
Americans than any o^r it's 
April 15th, better known as 
the last day to turn in taxes. After 
our initial fits of cursing the 
heartless rrunions of the Internal 
Revenue Service and paying 
huge fees to companies like H. tc 
R. Block or Jackson Hewitt, we 
wonder if there is a better way to 
handle tfie whole fiasco. 

With the presidential elections 
coming up later this year, the tax 
system is undm aUAoi fire by 
several candidates. Most notably. 
Steve Forbes, son of the late pub- 
lishing mogul Malcolm Forbes 
St., Yias been touting a tax concept 
called the flat tax, and garnering 
a huge amount of press in the 

The flat lax concept has been 
kicked around for years. Studies 
have been cocHlucted by both pri- 
vate individuals and various 
organizations. It attempts to sim- 
plify our current taxation system 
by taxing everyone at one flat 
rate (17% m Forbes' version), 
while eliminating most deduc- 
tums and exemptions. In its 
puicsl form il t.s d fair approach 
because everyone pays the same 
peKentj^ of their income to the 

Forbes adds a fiew twists. 
First ot all, kiss all of those 
deductions you may currently be 
using good-bye, including deduc- 

tion for charitable offerings or 
mortgage interest You get a flat 
deduction for the number of peo- 
ple in your household and lots of 
leniency for investment income, 
tfie latter of which will cater 
especially to tht>se living off of 
investment plans like insurance 
or retirement. 

It's been working for him 
quite mcely He's doing lietter 
than most people ever thought he 
would. Once wntten off for dead, 
he's now a force to be reckoned 
with. He's made waves to die 
point that other candidates have 
proposed flat tax plans of their 

Families with a pre-tax 
income in the mid 6-digit range 
or atx)ve tend to save a heap of 
money. Individuals who depend 
on investments for a large chunk 
of tfieir income will also come 
out smelting like a rose. 
You kiiow that old adage of the 
top 5% of the people controlling 
90% of the wealth? This is it. 

There's a tiny s'itch to all of 
this — where does the govern- 
ment reclaim all of the tax dollars 
that the upper class will no 
longer pnnide' 1 think we all 
know who's going to pick up the 
bill on that one. 

The funny thing with taxes is 
that fairness is hardly "fair" It 
would only seem fair that every- 
one pay the same percentage of 
their income to the government. 
After all, why should someone 
else get away with paying less 

taxes than someone else? But in 
order for taxes to be fair for 
everyone, the middle and lower 
classes must make up for the 
huge amounts of money no 
longer being supplied by the rich, 
ai\d that's where the problem is. 
the current bias is alreadv 
towards the middle and lower 

Far too many people are con- 
fusing a flat tax with a simple 
tax. Cutting the number of 
deductions does not take Oie 
Mallox out of slapping your John 
HaiKOck onto a Form 1040. The 
fact thai most people need a full- 
time tax speaalist to help them 
understand the plethora of tax 
laws is ludicrous. 

It is just as possible to have a 
complex flat tax as it is to have a 
simple structured tax. It would 
probably even encourage people 
to learn more about how to make 
their money work for them 
through investments since a great 
deal of difficulty would be elimi- 
nated. Aside from those obvious 
benefits, a simple tax system 
would free the $80 billion we 
spend each year in tax prepara- 
tion costs for more useful purpos- 

Before Election Day gets here, 
let the candidates know what 
America really needs. Ctmtrary to 
what many of us believe, it can 
get worse if left unchecked. The 
current system is overstressed, 
outmoded, and inefficient. But it 
can be changed

Cheerleader escapes brutal 
torture; tallts candidly about 
ciieerleading dilemma 

I am writing to respond to your article 
about the "Kidnapfied Cheerleaders." I 
t(H) was once a Lady Hawk chtvrleader, 
and let me tell you sometfung, it was awful. 
In high schiHil, I cheered lor tour years, and 
was voted the "Most Spirited ' 

I came to Harper in 1W4 and )oined the 
cheerleading squad 1 thought it would be 
fun and a great way to meet people, but I 
was wrong All of the girls were rude, 
includmg the coach. 

No one had any kind of spirit. We prac- 
ticed only two times a week, and then had 

We would never go lo any "away" 
games, because the coach didn't want to 
drive, and it was ttxi mconvenient The 
ciiach >aid we didn't have to go to games 
either, so no one went. 

I Ix'lieve that they should tell this coach 
to get her act together, or they should find a 
new one. 

Whv should tlarper even bother to have 
.1 squad il then- is no commitment or spirit^ 
I think it is an embarr,issment to the team 
and the schtxil.

R-ali/e, most of the heads of government in 
this ci)untr\ are white. How then are vou 
endangered of tiecommg a minonty' How 
long did it take for a black person to hold a

most of the seats in Congress to be filled by 
"minorities," not just black' The way this 
country is run. not even our great, great,

Therefore at this time, you have nothing to

Afhrmative Achon was implemented' There 
was a time when "minorities" were given a

nobodv else wanted How do you thmk 
that a black person who graduated from col- 
lege feels when he goes on a job and is 
turned down because of the color ol his skm,

ANN ARBOR. Mich -The 
black, military style vehicle 
adorrwd with a white Nike 
swDOiih logo has becomt- a 
familiar site at some ot the 
nation > larj;t>t collrgi- toot- 
ball stadiums. 

Shoe and athletic wear 
companies long ago n\ili/-ed 
the value of conni»cting their 
products to premii-r athletes 
and teams Professional teams 
and players have picked up 
big money from endorsement 

Now many others ot the 
nation's college athletic pow- 
erhouses have entered the 
marketplace and found it just 
as profitable Tlie new form of 
corporate involvement has 
caused college presidents to 
become concerned about 
whether schi>ols jre ceding 
contnil of their athletic pro- 
grams to companies such as 

Last year, tfw Umversity ol 
Michigan's Athletic 

Department signed a six-year, 
$7 2 million contract w ith 
Nike, which provides appan-l 
and sv:hi>larship money to all 
of the universitv s 2^ varsity 

Such deals loster an envi- 
ronment in which athletes 
might be more tempted to 
accept money or gifts from 
player agents or boosters in 
violation of National 
Collegiate Athletic Assoc- 
iation rules, or leave school 
well before their scheduled 
graduation dates, said Tom 
Hansen, commissioner of the 
Pacihc-lO Conference. 

Today it takes a lot of 
money to mamtain a lifestyle 
on a college campus," said 
Hansen, whose league has 
had to cope this fall with 
investigations of NCAA rules 
violations by UCLA and USC 
football players. 

Because of the NCAA's 
amateurism rules, college ath- 
letes can receive only tuition, 
room, board and books from a 
university In addition. sch«>l- 
jrship athletes cannot hold 
paving |obs Junn^ schmil 

In a recent interview with 
The Michigan Daily, UM 

Athletic I>iriftor Jcx- RoK-rson 

defended the University's 
contract and said a numtier of 
things people point to in 
attacking it are not true 

"The student-athletes ben- 
efit from our contract with 
Nike. No one nets a penny. " 
Rc->berson said "We );et a vou- 
pte of s<-holarships, a general 
residciKe program that

ment tor ail our teams-not |ust 
the two high— profile ones 
that are on television all the

goes back into the support of

the student athletes, and I con- 
sider that a big step forward." 

The nation's colleges gen- 
erated $2.5 billion in retail 
sales of products bearing their 
names, logos and mascots last 
year— more than was generat- 
ed by the National Hockey 
League or Major League 
Baseball. Unlike professional 
teams, the colleges make indi- 
vidual arrangements with 
manufacturers of products 
such as sweatshirts, pennants, 
stickers and mugs. 

Some schook fiave deals 
witfi as many as 500 compa- 
nies, each of which may make 
a different item and many of 
those businesses are relatively 

Nike and other large shoe 
and apparel makers, such as 
Reebok, have the national ori- 

entation, advertising budgets 
and marketing savvy to help 
colleges sell more gixnis in 
more places Nike posted sjles 
of about S5.2 billion during 
the 12 months ending Sept, 31), 
1995 and iS) million ol that 
came from its two-year effort 
to sell authentic college team 
apparel-the items worn by 
players and coaches during 
games that have become 
increasingly popular with 

UM Classical Studies Prof. 
David Ross s.iid he opposes 
the Nik(' conlrjit and the 
commerLiah/.ing ot ciiUegiatc 
athletics in general. "1 think it 
stinks, I think it's crass com- 
mercialism. It's .itxsolutely 
crass. Why dix's .i university 
want to get inviilved in this 
kind of money' The entire 
athletic department is far too 
big. It's all about money and 
commercialism," Ross said. 

"To pretend we're not com- 
mercial is absolutely silly," 
Roberson said "We charge 
100,000 people roughly 25 
bucks a head to get into the 
stadium and we sell them 
everyttung we can possibly 
sell them, and then we try to 
pretend we're not commer- 

School officials say these 
arrangements are matters of 
necessity. In a time of increas- 
ing costs, they are attempting 
to add programs for women 
without cutting programs for

perfectly with the test of the

poignantly emotional feel

McDrrmott played mmt 
of his own instruments, but 

got tielp from some other 
musicians on a couple of 
tracks. John Carpender of 
Mystery Driver played 
drums for "Suzie's Col a 
Brand New Hal". One par- 
ticularly interesting sound 
is the bagpipes (Bruce 
Erskine) on "Legendary" 
The bass made it sound 
almost Bowie-esque. All in 
all. the disc represents a 
very strong effort from 

Al Rose has been getting 
a considerable amount of 
airplay on stations tike

mostly jazz, with a hint of 
rock 1e toll- "Watermark" 
mntndcd me musically of 
the Red Hot Chili Peppers, 
with a draslKally dift^ienl 
vocal styte. A icinale singer 
came in toward the end. and 
her voice had an almost 
goapel-iike (|ua]ity. 

Rose's entire CD is an 
eclectic blend of folk iazz. 
with a touch of rock and the 
slighlcsl hint of the blues. 
Other highlights: "We re

No, I haven't been ignoring the local music

would like to mention that the Cleaning

Cathy Richardson 
Fooh on a Tandem 

Jessica Records 

Local songsticas Cathy Richanison's sec- 
oi¥J effort aimes fortfi with a vengeaiKe. The 
firat smgle, "Down for the Count" has been 
getting some fairly heavy airplay locally, and 
it was also mentioned in the entertainment 
industry's Billboard Magaziiw a couple of 
weeks ago as a ht>t up-and-coming single. 
Rumor has it that Richardstm has attractixi 
attention from some major bbels with her lat- 
est disc. 

Other highlights of the disc include 
"Twisted Arrow", "Not the Only One", 
"Running Out of Time" and the live version 
of "O Starry Night, Sorry Night" Richardson 
ntanages to sound tough yet sUghtly vulnera- 
ble on most tracks, a f<>at that few female per- 
formers maruge with such poise. 

Richardson has a long and prosperous 
career ahead of her With a sound that's sort 
of in between mafor-label artists the Indigo 
Girls and Melissa Etheridge. Richard'-on is 
sure to keep putting out quality music for 
many years to come. 

Joel Frankel 

If Petrr Pans Out 

Waterdog Records 

With a sound that's part Counting Crows, 
part Mellencamp and a big part folk, Joel 
Frankel has put out a very enjoyable disc. 
Much of his career in Chicago has been for 
fans under three feet tall— now comes some- 
thing fans of all ages can enjoy. 

Highlights: "tk>d, I Need Coffee" (some- 
thing any college student can relate to), 
"Eastern Standard Time", "So Much To Do" 
and "Second Best". The result: an excellent 
way of proving himself as a serious song- 
writer, iwt just a songwriter for kids 

Frankel's first serious album is well worth 
taking for a spin (or ten or a hundred) — he 
proves with this album that he is not only a 
great songwriter but a songwriter who can be 
enjoyed by many a generation, and a musi- 
cian who will be around for many more years

Our view 

Quit complaining 
and vote already! 

The Harbinger urges each and 
every voter to get to the polls and 
vote. The right to vote has been 
fought on many fronts in the histo- 
ry of the United States Women and 
blacks fought with their hearts, 
minds and sometimes lives in order 
to guarantee this freedom in our 

Compalints about elected offi- 
cials are heard at every level of 
government, including student 
government. However, when elec- 
tion time rolls around, voter partic- 
ipation IS frighteninj»ly low The 
city of Chicago has announcfd that 
voter registration is at an all-time 
low for the March 19 primary. 

Low voter participation leads to 
a small minority determining the 
future make-up of our government. 
Those who refuse to exercise their 
right to vote will have no one to 
blame but themselves. 
Unfortunately, bad elected officials 
do things that affect us all. 

The Harper College Student 
Senate for 1995-96 is a prime exam- 
ple of what happens when people 
refuse to vote Less thiin fifty votes 
per election has beci>me the norm 
tor Senate elections Last spring 
the Sen.ite I'reMdent jnd Vice 
President were elected. By 
November, they had quit on the 
heels of impeachment Their depar- 
ture left a void thai needed to be 
tilled The situation improved 
slightly with the appointment of 
Paul Wyer as president and 
Caroline Saccomanno as vice presi- 

Wyer ha.«. shown almost no lead- 
ership skills as the Senate presi- 
dent. He has allowed others to ful- 
fill his duties and is quick to pass

Are we really getting serious 
about children In violent crimes? 

Ion O'Brien 
The Eli's View 

Child violence is something 
that has grabt>ed (he emo- 
tional side ot our country 
for some time now Stones like 
children setting tir<' 'o their hous- 
es, robbing other kid'- tor their 
shoos i>r dropping voung ones 
out !.>! high-rise windows for 
candy are on the news in griiwing 
numbers At the source of all ol 
the incidents is an inniKent person 
getting hurt, sometimes latally 
It seems like everv' expert in 
the country has a new angle on 
how to curb the problem. While 
man\ ot these ideas hold ment, 
the law has not been so able or 
willing as to actually trv" some of 

Amenca as a whole has started 
showing felons, rapists, criminals, 
drug lords, and killers a lot more 
mercy than they should e\ er 
receive. The tact that so many chil- 
dren involved in violent crimes 
the onj-s who are perfectK sani' 
and can differentiate right and 
wrong, get out because they're 
under 18 is disgusting. 

Most of the kxal area news- 
casts haie shown the infamous 
video of a group ol l.os Angeles 
teens attacking innocent 
bystanders with paintballs and 
baseball bats Thev knew what 
they Here doing- they were 
laughing the whole time' 

If convicted as adults, and 
there is no guarantee that this will 
happen, these kids will face up to 
17 years in the slammer But why 
stop there? If 1 was one of the 
beaten or pelted, I'd want a cou- 
ple minutes alone with a pellet 
gun at these young ones. 

What bothers me even more is 
the people who claim that chil- 
dren like these need psychological 
help For what, so a highlv-paid 
doctor can tell us that these kids. 
an? missing a few chips? 

Resources like this would t>e 
better spent on children who 
could benefit fmm the treatment, 
such as the chi Id who was ordered 
by his lather to kill him. Because 
of one man's inability to cope 
with everyday life, this pot>r ihild 
IS going to have to live with that 
terrible thought for the ri'st of his 
life If the father did not die from 
the wound, I can think of several 
people who would have liked to 
finish the n^b 

Where are the parents in all of 
this' A mother of one ot the chil- 
dren in the Los Angeles |ovride 
claimed that her child would 
ni»ver do such a violent act, 
despite the group's own Mdoo 
liad this lady had a clue as to 
what her child was doing, could 
something ha\e btvn done' It 
ma\ not ha\ e stopped the dnve- 
by but it might have spared one 
young life from tx'commg a possi- 
ble felon 

Knowing the difference 
between right and wrong can be a 
difficult thing when you're a 
teenager. But knowing not to do 
something if you don't fully 
understand it is something you 
leam the first time you tried to 
touch fire or a pot of hot water 

As I've rattled off a million 
times before, raising our children 
correctly begins in the home. If 
you don't know how to raise a 
child or are unfit to be a parent, 
you never should have attempted 
to conceive one. Today's delin- 
quent children are tomorrow's 
junkies and burdens on society. 

A crime is a crime, regardless 
of the age of the person commit- 
ting it. Anytme who commits one 
des»Tvcs nothing less than prose- 
cution to the fullest extent of the 
law. If someone keys my car, robs 
me of my shoes, or attempts to 
brfak info my home, none of the 
usual, such as "lousy 
childhLK>d," or my personal 
favorite, "Ini a victim of society,", 
is going to s,n e them. They're 
"goin' downtown." 

I'm not asking for a total o\ er 
throw of the American justice sys- 
tem I )ust don't feel like bivoming 
a statistic because of another per- 
si>n's negligence or bci.iusi' some 
kid decides that the l.iv\ does not 
apply to him/her I don't think 
anybody else does, either. 

This kind of scum deserves no

No green card? Better get Royko 

TW Fulhrr 
American Independent 

When Mike Royko sat down 
J few weeks ago and began 
writing his Feb 27th col- 
umn for the Chicaifo Tribune, little did 
he know then that the finished prcxl- 
uct would spark a new Mexican- 
American War

politician With all the far greater

ing the citv of ChKago he took it 
upon himsfll to make Royko his 
number one pnority. 

It isn't every politician that would 
show their inaptitude on the first 

To the issue at hand - it may be 
painful to repnnt what Royko has 
said about Mexico and Mexicans 
But lets do It anyway' 

"Besides doing nothing to prevent 
Its surplus citizens fn>m sneaking 
into this country, it is a corrupt 
narci>state that pumps tons ot drugs 
into this countv, " writes Royko 

He continues with, "It s police 
and pi'liticians a real slea/v crowd - 
are owned b\ the drug t>oss«.'s ' 

Such n'marks have angered many 
.Americans with Mexican heritage, 
who have labeled them as racist 
But by examining them, the truth is 
e\ idem

prevent its citi/ens fn>m crossing the

As for Royko calling Mexico's 
police and politicians a sleazy crowd- 
Havcn't we lixiked upon our own 
legislators w ith disgust and called 
them every name in the book? 

"A corrupt narco-state thai pumps 
tons of drugs into this country " The 
truth IS that Mexico supplies drugs to 

In the Chicago Tribune article, 
"U.S. pressure in drug war angers 
Mexico' (front page), it states that, 
"The United Stales may stxm declare 
that Mexico has been insufficiently 
diligent in fighting the hde of drugs 
flowing into the t.S " 

It goes on to read (on page 13), 
"Mexico remains a major transship- 
ment point for ciKaine and other ille- 
gal drugs destined tor the US Drug 
smuggling across the long US - 
Mexican border is rampant." 

If the Mexicans weren't so over-

I will keep It briet though, as sex-

whelmingly apathetic,and had as 
much gumption as their relatives 
who legally immigrated here, some- 
thing might be accomplished. 

Ironically, the country, wnich is 
something of a safe zone for legal 
Mexicans and which is becoming 
increasingly intolerant of illegal 
Mexicaas might have to intercede cm 
behalf of Mexico by investing heavily 
in individual businesses that have a 
chance to succeed. 

It is not something America ought 
lo do, but it is because the Mexicans 
refuse to take any initiative them- 
selves, aside from fleemg across the 
border legally or not, that the U.S. 
may be forced into it. 

And If is because of this influx of 
immigrants that the U.S. must do 
something in the immediate future to 
protect its own interests, even if it 
means acting as a parent or guardian

Dole's VP a mystery; few 
notable names surface 

Frank Bt\'fl 
Staff lolumnist 


th Bob Dole as the virtual 
preMdential nominee for 
the n'publican party this 
year, it is about time to start speculat- 
ing .>n who his potential running 
mate coulii he 

Most people involved in 
Republican circles teel that Lkile will 
be forced to pick someone more ct>n- 
servative than himself to appease a 
ma|or voting block oi his party, much 
like C>orge Bush pii ked Llan Quale 
m N88 

A short list ot possible candidates 
of this type would include Covemor 
lohn Engler of Michigan and 
Governor Tommy Thompson of 
Wisconsin. As consi-rv ative as these 
two are. they bi.)th have their weak- 
nesses rhompsi>n comes triim a 
small state with only eleven electoral 
voles and Kngler did not endorse 
LX'le early enough in the pnvess, 

Colin Powell would be the smart 
choice politically because ot his cur- 
rent populantx but I'hil t^ramm toltl 
Dole the only w.i\ he would entiorse 
Dole IS It he promised nol to pick 

Senator Kick Santoaim is a 
strong possibility, he comes from a 
large state Pennsylvania, is young 
(about IT-vears old), and he is 
appeasing to the conservalu •">. 

The only pniblem with him 

IS that he would get mercilessly cru- 
cified bv the liberal media over his 
age and positions on the issues. 

This brings us lo Gtwemor Edgar. 
Right now, he would be the perfect 
choice He is a gixid seasoned cam- 
paigner, ready to move up m the 
political world 

He just won a landslide re-4'ks:- 
titvn victory in l'W4 and could easily 
deliver Illinois 22 electoral votes, 
which would take away a state 
Clinton won in '92 and would proba- 
bly win m 'th it l-dgar were not on 
this ticket. 

This pn-sents an interestmg prob- 
lem for our stale if a Dole-Edgar tick- 
el wins and Ll Governor Bob Kustra 
wins Paul Simon's vacant Senate 

The next in line is Attomey- 
CrfTieral )im Ryan He would become 
Governor, but would nol be able to 
pick a l.t Governor, as the Illinois 
Constilulum calls for no replacement 
lo be picked until the next regular 

So. don't be tiHi surpnsed if the 
above scenario takes place In faci, 1 
think Edgar has the inside track on 
getting the VP. nomination despite 
his pro-atxirtion stance because of his 
earlv support of Dole and the fat t 
that he campaigned personally for 
him in Iowa 

And , of course, Edgar wants this 
promohon to the nahonal spotlight—

The sound of a somber gong

GLB ''group" bars Harbinger reporter from meeting 

Final Exam Schedule 

Ml* ThompMH 


A Harbinger reporter was bartned from th« 
Harper College Gay, Lesbian, aiHl Bisexual 
meeting March 14. The gathering was pre- 
sented by Student Development who provid- 
ed the meeting place in building 1 nxim 117. 

This was the first meeting in recent years 
by a college sponsored group that has not 
allowed the Harbinger to attend their meet- 

Signs posted around the campus and an ad 
that ran in the Feb. lb issue of the Harbinger 
prompted statt writer Rose Marie Hylton to 
cover the GLB meeting like she would any 
other club on campus. "I wanted to inform 
the students about the meeting the same way 
1 cover multicultural events." 

Hylton said her exclusion from the meet- 
ing came after Student Development 
Couitielor and GLB advisor Andy Howe 
questioned her about her sexuality. After 
finding out she wasn't gay, lesbian or bisexu- 
al and that she was a reporter for the 
Harbinger he said she couldn't attend the 

"I'm glad I made the decision not to let her 
(Hylton) into the meeting. "Howe said "If 
Hyltcm would have said she was gay I may 
have let her m, but not to report the stor)- " 

Howe MuJ, "Stnce it was our first meeting, 
niy concern was to provide a safe and secure 
environment ft>r the stiadcnia." 

Mark G<x)dman, fmam liiir Sludcfil Pwsm 
Law Center in Washingtcm DC , said if the 
group IS sponsored by the college and is hav- 
ing a publicized me«*ting on the campus them 
the meeting should be open to all students. 

Goodman said. "The gn>up discnmmated 
against the reporter based on her sexualitv' 
and her status as a journalist." 

Harper Communications Oiivclor Amy 
Hautnitmn Mid it surpriges her somewhat to 

hear that a reporter was banned from attend- 
ing a meeting that was hdd on campus. She 
said the best place to look for answers as to 
what the policies are is Student Activities 
Director Jeanne Pankanin. 

Pankanm said the students that met on 
campus were not an official Harper club. 
She said the group has not been given any 
funding by student activities yet. 

Pankanin said. "They (the GLB) are not 
officially a club until they file the necessary 
paper woi k. so there's really no way to eval- 
uate the situation." 

Caroline Saccomano, Student Senate V'lte- 
Presidcnt, said there are two kinds of clubs on 
campus: an open club which gets funding 
from the college, therefore it's open to all stu- 
dents, and a restncted club which gets no 
funding from the college, therefore the mem- 
bership is closed. 

Student Activities Cix>rdinator, Michael 
Neiman said the college should allow for a 
safe environment for the students to meet in 
"Thev have the right to a confidential setting. 
We live in a violent society where the public 
feels its O.K. to bash gays," he said 

Neiman said that because the group was 
meetii^ to discuss gay, lesbian and bisexual 
issues, they should be treated in a different 
way than other clubs on campus 

Roderick Brown, a student development 
counselor who attended the meeting, said he 
thinks the reporter wasn't let in because of 
privacy issues. But he has no comment as to 
what happened between Howe and the 
Harbinger n*ptirt«!r. 

Howe -Hiid the status of continuing the 
GLB IS undedTmined He plans to have 
another meeting on campus to decidf 
whether or not to apply for college binding 
He said, "The next time we meet 1 see no 
pn>blem with letting the Harbinger in; as 
kmg as it's O.K. with the students."

A victim's reaction to the Clothesline 


It was 14 years ago in California, but on March 13 in build- 
ing A it was only a clothesline away. 

1 thought that 1 had put the memories of that frightening day 
in an unreachable part of my memory. The terror and anger 
were supposed to be gone. 

I'd heard about the life-long affects of violent acts. 1 thought 
that I was different. He never got a chance to hurt me physical- 
ly. I was spared by a voice in a crowd. 

The police came and 1 told them my story. Months later, a 
judge would not give me the same opportunity, because my 
attacker's lawyer had cut a deal. 

Some deal. He received two years of probation because the 
judge said, "he's only a kid." 

Five years ago he shot his girlfriend in the head, "by acci- 
dent." She's alive and now he's in jail. 

I had put all of this behind me until I saw the shirts hanging 
from the clothesline. Tears rolled down my face as 1 read each 
and every one. 

I was compelled to make a shirt too. 1 let all of my emotions 
pour out of the paint bottles and onto the shirt as I boldly 
painted the words that had been locked away for so long: 

"NO! Take back your life! Justice is blind but 1 am a survivor! 
It's my body and my life!" 

I am one of the lucky ones who survived. The Clothesline 
reminded me of that. Those memories are no longer locked 
away, because I'm not afraid of them anymore.

The Harbinger 
April 5, 1996 

Our view 

They can do it, 
why can't we? 

V\rith everyone asking tor more 
money, we at the Harbinger think 
that maybe we should be given 
more also. 

Recently the board approved 
to raise tuition two dollars, which 
means it you take 15 credit hours 
you will be charged an extra $30 
per semester. That two dollars 
adds up after a while doesn't it? 

So with raising fees, and 
tuihon, we believe that we can 
charge students $.25 for each 
issue of the newspaper Yes, it 
has been brought to our attention 
that nobody will read the news- 
paper, but that's the price we 
have to pay to make more money 
(no pun intended). 

We also realize that with initi- 
ahng this new $.25 charge the 
news will need to sell itself. So 
attention all students go out and 
make news for ii> to use. lump 
off a building, otfe nd tach and 
lAery public safto\ olticer. Do 
what ever it takes to get your 
name in print. Believe us it's 
worth it. 

Then again we at the 
Harbinger don't need to sell our 
newspaper, we don't need for 
you to jump off of buildings or 
do Mv of thi>se cra/y antics 
because we aren't going to ask 
students to buy our newspaper 
Maybe the board could use s«)me 
of our common sense thinking to 
better themselves in the future

No matter how much we pre- 
fer the unbndleii |oy of picking 
OUT noses in our own \ ehicltrs 
(with the false> that nobody 
can see us) oxer public trans- 
portation, we need to remember 
that driving is a nght and not a 
privilege^- a right that can l>e 
anoked with the swing of a 

Inter one ITiomas Redlin of 
Bertsenville, who a-cenlly was 
awarded $(> 75 million from the 
village of Hanover Park for 
crashing his motorcycle into a 
median Redlin. unfamiliar with 
his surroundings and driving an 
unfamiliar vehicle (without a 
motorcycle license), dumped his 
motorcycle upon colliding with a 
median while trying to activate 
his high-beam headlights 
Despite a child witness claiming 
that he ran down a sign warning 
motorists of the median during 
his mishap, Redlin insisted that 
the sign was not present Kedlm 
is now paralyzed frcim the waist 
down due to his tragic mishap. 

There is ni» reason fcir any 
decent person to w ish this kind 
of horrible accident upon anoth- 
er But there is no reason for that 
decent person to pav for the vic- 
hm's mistake 

Why is It the fault of the vil- 
lage that Redlin could not see the 
road turn — did he really mvd a 
sign to tell hini !hat> Whx must 
the taxpayers of the \ illage infuse 

a huge amount ol mtrney into his 
personal c»)ffer because- he was 
driving to«T fast for conditions? 
Why must John and Jane Q. 
I'ublic compensate this man for 
his lack of tH'tter judgment' 

It diH-sn't take much to find 
an accident waiting to happen. 
How often do you meet someone 
in traffic doing their makeup or 
reading a newspaper? What 
aKiut the guy with a car phone 
in one hand and a cigarette in the 
other- how does this guy steer" 
t> colliding with someone 
pulling out from a blind intersec- 
tion and claiming tlie accident is 
your fault someone left 
them room to get out? And of 
courae, the ultimate idiot, the one 
who left his brain in its jar that 
monung, the uninsured motonst 

I am a strong believer of 
Darwinian theory being applied 
to the road. By operating a 
motorcycle, you assume a greater 
deal of of the 
reduced safety. If one cannot 
accept this risk, then they should 
board a bus or get a giKid pair of 
walking shix-s Lawsuits like 
Redlin s are the reason why I 
cannot get a hot cup of coffee 
from McDonalds anymore 

The dav that we start taking 
the ritual <if driving as seriously 
as It should is the day a lot more 
lives get savetl, making the roads 
ol .Amenta .1 s.ifer and more 
enjoyable place.

T W fuller 
American Indqtendent 

There is a vinous and 
somewhat synoptic 
debate brewing in con- 
gress over whether to lilt the 
ban on assault weapons or 
kec'p It m place 

While groups like ttu' 
NRA insist the law is uncon- 
stitutional, polls indicate the 
vast majonty of Americarvs 
want to keep tfie law mtact. 

1 1 IS a common scene, 
played over and over witfiin 
the halls of congressional 
legislation: one person (sav, a 
relative of slain President 
lofui F 


voices con- 
cerns that lilt- 
ing the ban 
will do more 
to promote 
crime than to 
prevent il in 
the long run 
Another per- 
son (say, a 
politician con- 
cemi'd al-Kiut 
his wile King left alone) 
argues that she ought to 
have the right to protect her- 
sell from intruders, maybe 
v^ith a t»n Icsil ba/iHika on 
her shoulders or a fifty 
pound Ak 47 strapfx\i to 
her person, i omplele with 
one hundred niunds ot 

While thev are equallv 
impassioned tor a certain 
point ot V lew, their use ol 
pleonasm does them both a 
discredit, and shows wh\ a 
r»MMiiiable settlement has 
not and cm not. Iv reachevl 

Il Is either a constitutional 
right to bear arms (including 
any ass.iull weapon on the 
market) Or. if certain 
weapons are banned, il may 
lead down a path banning 

This kind of prattle has 
btvn st.iied to the point of 

IVe neeil tresh ideas th,it 
combat old conjtYtures if the 
NRA s grass"roots" organi- 
zations aniund the countrv 
are to be extirpated 

What hasn t tx^en heard, 
or mentioned or even sp*.vu- 
lated upon is common sj-nse 
Such virluositv. it si-ems, is 
never prevalent at nmgn-s- 
sional debates, perhaps 
thought ol as tixi sacrile- 

It, in lad. common sease 
was ever to be interjected, it 
would be learned that no 
person suggests for all 
weapons to be banned, only 
those that have no purpose 
other than to kill indiscrimi- 

nVe need fresh 
ideas that combat 
old conjectures if 

the NRA's grass 
"roots" organiza- 
tions around the 
country are to be 

nately A hand gun, shot- 
gun, or rifle is sufficient and 
protection enough to get the 
job done 

The NRA will argue that 
It Ls a matter of rights TTus 
IS a gniss prevaricahon The 
second amendment, while it 
states ttu- right to bare arms, 
does not provide descTip- 
lions of particular weapons. 
Therefore, we are free to 
mterpret just what arms 
may be suitable. 

Who can claim the right 
to own a nuclear, or even an 
atomic weapon? 

It IS a simple matter ot 
cvimmon sense. Our forefa- 
thers intended 
for us to have 
the right to 
defend our 
home from 
those vN-ho 
would wish to 
lake It away or 
do harm upon 
the land, they 
realized the 
importance of 
self defense and 
made provi- 
siOTB under fhi' stvond 

But to think thev would 
have agreed and stood by 
the NRA in their claim to 
owning weapons that serve 
no purpcise other than to kill 
amither human bemg^ 
I >bviously they would not 
have concurred 

M<isl importantl)-, what 
nivds lo be addressed is the 
rea.son behind wanting to 
own such a weapon 
.-M'ter all, there is very little 
An assault v\eapi>n <au b..- 
usee' (or 

lo s,n that it makes a 
"prettv ■ decoration over the 
m.inlle is an inadei)uale 
rebuttal To sav that it 
makes killing an intruder 
simpler and mon- fun may 
have Its merits, but nowhere 
near enough to claim legiti- 
mac\ A hand gun can kill 
an intruder dead, (ust as well 
.Is anv assault weapon 

If a senator tcvis Ihat 
stronglv towards his wile 
Ix-mg unprotivted, perhaps 
he would better serve his 
country- by her side, instead 
of up iin capital hill where 
he can ilo no gcxxl 

I inally, ask yourself this 
cjueslRin How safe and 
secure would you feel living 
in a neighborhcKxl wheie 
you knew for fact every citi- 
zen owned a gun' 

Then ask yourself this 
queshon How sate would

Styx reuniting tliis summer 

Laura Garrison 


"Styx it is in '96!" 
-James "JY" Young 

"If the Eagles said hell would 
freeze over and Ihey got back togeth- 
er, anything is pt>ssible I believe in 
my heart that there will be a Styx 
reunion before the end of the centu- 
ry, but only fools are surv" 

These were the words lames "JY" 
Young sf><ike about a vf>ir ago We as 
St\ A tans won't have to wait until the 
tdge of the Century In what can 
only be called the prophesy of the 
decade for any Sty x fan, there will be 
a reunion tour this summer 

The reunion has been something 
that has been in the works for quite 
some time. The last studio album 
with the whole band intact. "Kilroy 
Was Here", was recorded over a 
decade ago. After the release of 
"Kilroy", members 
decided to go their 
separate ways due 
to creative differ- 
ences. Since 
"Kilroy", members 
of Styv have moved 
in diflerent circles 
(and kept their 
hometown ties heri' in Chicago) only 
to wind up with their paths crossing 
almost coastantlv. 

Dennis l> Young, Young, Chuck 
Pano/zo and John Panoz/o teamed 
up With C.len Burtnick and i>ther 
musicians to record "Edge of the 
Century", but that mini-reuni>in 
lacked one kev plaver Tommv Shaw 
Shaw had been working on several 
musical projects with the likes of 
"Terrible Tt"d' Nugent and also with 
Jack Blades (formerly of Night 
Ranger), perhaps the most notable 
was Damn Yankees 

Youngs most recent project, The 
lames Young tiroup, included much 
collaboration from Glen Burtnick in 
the Mingwriting department Tven 
while recording his own projects. 
Young seemed to feel that his great- 
est musical achievements came dur- 
ing the times he spent with Styx. "A 
part of me will alwavs be there," he 
told The Harbinger last viar 

Then a very interi-stmg thing hap- 
pened. A&M Records which had 
released a compilation ot Styv' great- 
est hits a few years back, was unable 

to place one of their earlier hits 
("Lady") on the compilation This 
was because when Sty x first began as 
a band, they recorded for a label 
called Wooden Nickel When 
approached, Wix)den Nickel refused 
to give up the nghts to the song so 
that it could be included on the com- 

A&M released the compilation 
without "l-ady", and it went on to 
sell quite impressively. However, 
Mimething was missing. Then, a cou- 
ple of years ago someone at A&M 
came up with a brilliant plan: have 
the original members rereiord the 
song to be iiu ludcxl on another com- 
pilation of their greatest hits. 

I ast spring, the plan became real- 
ity The original members got togeth- 
er In the studio to rerecord "l.ady" as 
"Lady '45", The new compilation 
would not only 
include "Udy '95 ', it 
would also include 
"l.oreler', which was 
overlooked when 
they issued the first 
When the record was 
released, it was 
expected to have mixiest sales, so 
most record stores didn't stock many 
copies. The result: it quu klv became 
verv hard to come by — stores sold 
out of It almost as last as it came in, 
according to Rob Gillis of 
Whitehouse Records 

With an album that exceeded 
sales evpivtalions and the knowl- 
edge that they could all wt.rk togeth- 
er once again, the members of Styx 
recently decided that they wanttxi to 
play together once again Currently, 
their only plan is to plav together 
and see how it goes. 

Styx will indi-ed tour the United 
States this summer, and they may 
also tour |apan. Ihey will be releas- 
ing a new album of mostly i ild songs, • 
"Greatest Hits Part 2" w ithin the next 
couple of months. The new compila- 
tion will include three brand-new 
>ongs— two Dennis DeYbung songs 
which are more pop-oriented, and 
one rock song written by Tommy 

According to lames Young, 'Styx 
m % It is... it will be Styx in '%." 

Styx announces Chicago date 

Stw will be playing at the New 
World Music Theatre on Friday, June

The Hawks spent their time .iw.iy 
tmm scKuol working instead of n-Ux- 
ing as they squared off .Jgainsl some 
of Floridd'v top lunior college tejms 

The chilly March weather in 
niinots put the Hawks at a disadvan- 
tage during their nine day stint. Each 
of the Florida teams had more than 20 
games under their bt»lt by the time tfw 
Hawks hit town 

Friday March 22 was the first time 
the Hawks had the opportunity to 
play outside of Harper's Building M 
"These teams are very much ahead of 
us, right now," said coach Norm 
Garrett dunng the Florida trip 

The Fiawks finished the mad trip 
with a record of 1-10 with the lone

Harper pitchers gave up 3,'> walks 
during their first weekend of play tor 
a tt>tal of 2'» unearned runs 

"ThcTes )ust no defenx; tor a 
walk," s<iid Garn»tt. "VVV ro getting 
the hits, but the other teams aren't 
walking petiple. " 

Sophomore Josh l^ettiere kniKked 
one out of the park to bringing in 
three runs against Clouster College 

Matt lonas knocked in three runs 
on two hits in his first game. 

"We're getting the fiits we need, 
and we're turning double plays. " said 
GarR-tt 'I don t think that we turned 
that many .ill last season " 

"I'm very happy with our overall 
performance. >aid Garrett I ttvl a 
lot better coming back from Florida 
with this team than I did last year " 

"We were in every game except 
one," added Garr«tt. "We had a 
chance to win each one of tfiem " 

Harper lost a cloM- one (6-°<) to 
Seminofcf junior College on Mar 28. 

PitcfH'r Rob Thompstm went tour 
innings, giving up only five walks. 
Garrett's team had a runner on third 
with on*' out in the final innmg, but 
failed tt> bring the runner home. 

Frank Picrsante pitched the mid- 
dle three innings Lettien- kniKked 
one out of the park for a twcvrun 


Nyrt Pettinger twatches the ball as it flies toward the parking lot 

homer that tied the siore dl 4-4 

"It was a bomb, again." said 
(..arrett ' F\erv time he hits the ball it 
gc»~* a long w.n" 

The Haw ks will play five of 
tfieir next sev en games at home with

mud slinging in this year's

election was found to be unsub-

I-lcHtion Committee. 

The formal complaint tiled by 
Josetina Campos-Ruera, claimed 
that nevvlv fleeted Student 
Trustee, .Antoine Stank made slan- 
derous remarks about his oppo- 
nent, La\ elle Velez in the cafeteria 
on campus 

Rivera said she heard Starek 
saying sexual comments about 
Velez with his friends. 

A source close to the election 
committee said, "Saying bad 
things about pt-ople in an election 
doesn't break any bi-laws, so the 
committee couldn't take any 

Starek said he had no knowl- 
edge that a formal complaint was 
filed, or that if went in fnjnt of the 
election committee. He admitted 
to being in the cafeteria with his 
friends talking about the election, 
but he strongly denied saying any- 
thing about Valez, "The complaint 
is ridiculous," he said.

ETHICS: Ballot boxes left unattended 

Continued from page 1 

"It was a dirty campaign-" 
Velez said Tve lust a lot o( 
respect for Harper becauae erf 
the election ptxKess." 

Student Acti vines 

Director, Jeanne Pankanin 
said several complaints were 
brought to her attenhon, but 
none were formally filed 
within the required 24 hour 
period after the polk closed. 
Therefore, no administrative 
action could be taken. 

Pankanin said she takes 
ail complaints very senoasly, 
"1 have personally checked 
out each one," she said " But 
there> no way to verify the 
complaints because they 
were either anonymous or 
second hand " 

One complaint reported to 
the student activities office 
was by Harper student, 
Tiffany Faber "I went to vote 
on April 10 and there was no- 
body at the voter's box at the 
information booth in build- 
ing A." She said, "All the bal- 

lots were left out, so 1 didn t 
vote there because I thought 
there was a problem. I ended 
up going to buildinjj I to 

Faber wasn't alone in her 
concern about the unattend- 
ed ballot box. Phi Theta 
Kappa President, Diane 
Novak also went to vote in 
building A the same day, and 
found the same scenario 1 
went to the information 
btwlh to vote and no one was 
there. 1 voted, put my ballot 
in the box and left, it was 
very strange," she said 

A source close to the elec- 
tion committee said no ballot 
boxes were left unattended 
Someone was there at all 
times to oversee the voting. 

Faber said she didn't 
know she had to file a written 
complaint about the ballot 
bo.v m order to have student 
activities investigate the 
problem "They (the student 
activities office) should be 
skeptical about the votes 

from the box in building A," 
she said. 

Speaking on condition of 
anonvmily, a Harper student 
said she received a student 
activities card at the business 
office without showing any 
identification. She said, "I 
told the person my social 
security number and got the 
card She said, it raised ques- 
tions about the accuracy of 
the election results

Student Senate purchases class gift 

Ctiristliw Becktr 


The Harper CollcKe Student Senate voted 
.It lis ,\pril 4 meeting to purchase an emer- 
gencv phone bo\ to be donated to the 
College as a class gift 

The phone box contains a radio iivude 
that IS directly linked with public safety Jis 
patchers and officers. When the phone is 
picked-up, the dispatchers and oltiuTs will 
immediately be able to fuar what is ^omg 

The phone is not just for emcTgencies, but 
can be used lo handle routine requests such 
as keys kicked in a car, a car that won't start 
or a flat tire 

[>ue budget constraints, only one call 
box w js able lo be purchastni The call box 
costs $3,UXIH0 The rt^maininj; monev \\-ill 
be used to purchase five pann benches, 
which will cost around S2.350,(.W. 

Student Viiate officials arwi't sure when 
the emergency phone box and the picnit 
benches will arrive or where thev 11 be 
placed Tliese divisions will be diMussed at 
their next meeting 

Richard Gillette, a member ol the Boards 
of Trustee said, "I think its a verv thought- 
ful and practical gilt to help protect the safe- 
ty and the welfare of the students," 

Tlie Student Senate had a lot of enthusi- 
asm over purch.ismg the phone Caroline 
Saccuniannu, ['resident ot the Student

Kevin King, Chief of Security said, "We 
are budgeting for one or two more phones 
for lWh/ci7 In addihon we have requested 
money from the life Safety Fund for call 
boxes lor all the parking lots, possibly ten 
more These phones are to imreasi' the safe- 
ty for stall and studenis I teel this will have 
J positive response " 

leanne Pankanin, Director of Student 
Actn ihes sjid, "I know the Student Senate 
has several items on the list I'm glad they 
reached a conseasus on this item, which 
they feel will result in improved safety for 
our students. I am curious to see if this pit)- 
gram is successful." 

Harper student Allison Kohn said, "1 feel 
every college should fiave safety phones. 
Why have they just thought about it now?"

May Is National High Blood Pressure Month 

Get your bkxxl pressure checked or May 2, at llOO ajm. -

If you get your blood piessuie checked you can pick 
up a prize in Hetith Service! Also, at the cafeteria locaiton 
Health Service staff and Dietetic Technician students will 
be providing educabonat phjtnphlets, recipes and low- 
salt snacka at the Blood Pressure Education Table. 

Thcic't a killer on the \oose But it doe>n't carry a gun 
or a knife. This one is a silent killer called high blood pres- 

High blood presmue is called the "silent kiiier" 
becaiMe you can have it for years without any symptoms. 
Tliat's why it's important to have your blood piessuiv 
checked at least every two years. 

Blood pressure is the result of two forces. One is creat- 
ed by your heart as it pumps blood into the arteries. The 
other is created by the arteries as they resist the blood 
flow from the heart. Like the nozzle on a water hoze, the 
arteries can contract or expand and change the flow of 
blood through them If they contract or press too much, 
the heart must work harder and blood pressure rises 

It's important to control high blood pressure because it 
can lead to heart attacks, strokes and kidney damage. 

In most cases the cause of high bltxid pressure is 
unknown. Tl» tendency toward high blood pressure 
seems to run in some families. And certain groups are 
more at risk than others. 

You can do a kit to prevent and cotttrol mild high 
bkwd pressure by taking self-help measures such as: 

• Losing weight (if cwerwcight) 

• Becoming more physically active 

• Moderating alcohol use 

• Cuttuig down on salt intake. 

A variety of new drugs may be prescribed at the 
upcoming bkxid pressure screenmg Together, we can put 
a stop to the silent killer.

On indecent broadcasts: where to draw the line? 



One mominft in the not-MxliftUni 
piat. radio host Howard Slem madtt a 
penonal attack on Evergivcn Media's 
Larry Wert His commentary wa* pitv 
vuked by his own failure to break into 
ttw Chica(p> market on an Evergnsm- 
dwned station Stem alle]^ to thit 
day that Wert is completely ie»p<Hi»i- 
lil« for the tack of interest in the 
Chicago markt't 

Stem's hrt'Kidcaai that moming 
cons»sted ot his wiiWi^ that Wert 
would bv raped by males with the

The sad part ut that Howard Stem 
M jUMt one oi many persoiwlities who 
■ometiUMS broadcasts vulgar, otfen- 
»lve. or otherwi.^e inappropriate 
nnaterial Mancow MulWr and Rush 
Ltmbaugh are |ust two more exam- 
ple* of broadcaster* who tend to 
step over the line o^ decetKy

tianal even with vulgarity, then some- 
times that's okay, ' explains WCBR's 
lay Slem (no relation to Howard 
Stern I ]a\ Stem then stated that 
wmetimes broadcasters have to use 
obscene language if there Ls no i>ther 
way to drive the point across For 
example, in the Candleb<ix song 
"You", the phrase "f — vou" i> used 
several times, but in tKat pjrtuuUr 
case it has been deemed appaipriate 
because of the extremely potent anti- 
drug message 
ai^iociated with 
the song

WCBR's Tony 
M o 1 i n a r o 

that tale-nighl tntiadcaslen are often 
able to get away with more because 
most kids are in bed and they don t 
have to worry as much about who's 

WLLiP program director M.itt 
Bisbee agrees "After 10PM in a sjti- 
harbor' for bn»dcastcrs in that they 
can get aw.iv with mote However, 
juitl bt\.ius<' It ^ --.itf harlxrr hours 
d«ii"* not mt'dii that it > nkjy to viy the 
I word ■■ Bisbee went on to mjinlain 
that indecent broadcists can include 

personal attacks, graphic descriptions 
o* bodily hinctions and body parts 
and putting things in something. 
"Anytime you tell someone to put 
stinwthing IN something (i.e stick it 
up your butt) even without graphic 
terminology you're asking for trou- 
ble " 

Often the nature of material broad- 
cast dictates whether or not f>et>ple 
will advertise on a particular pro- 
gram 'We have clients who won't 
advertise on 

"Shows that run wild 
are the ones who get 
fined and lose advertis- 
ers and ultimately get 
fined by the FCC 

WLUP-FM Program Director 
Matt Bisbee 

Howard Stem, 
Ru-.h l-imbaugh, 
or other shows 
K-caus*' of the 
nature of the 
material," says 
Robert Carrison 
of Bender, 

Browning, l\>lby 
& Sanderson 
BistHt" also agrees 
that inappropriate broadcasts can 
scare away advertisers: "It's not gotxi 
entt!rtainment Wrong— we have to 
have advertisers to function ' 

Not only do shows which bnwd- 
cast questu>nable content run the risk 
of losing advertisers, they also run ihf 
risk of the station's license being 
revoked. The HCC sometimes cracks 
down on indecent broadcasts. In 
order for the FCC to get involved, 
sonu-one has to flag the show^lape 
the questionable content and send it 

to the KC Then, the FCC evaluates 
the material and sends notification to 
the radio station/ personality beii\g 
cited. It is then up to the station to 
decide what action to take with the 
broadcaster, and whether or not to 
fight the FCC actions 

Individual stations handle their 
own affairs differently. Depending on 
the seriousness of the offense, conse- 
quences handed down from stations 
range from a slap on the wrist, to an 
on-air apology, to fines, even dis- 
nussal from the radio station. Als<i, 
the FCC reserves the right to revoke 
the license of any broadcaster or radio 
station for any reason, or assess fines 
or cortsequences ot their own deter- 

Bisbee explairted, "Shows tfvit run 
wild are the ones who get fined and 
lose advertisers and ultimately get 
flaggi>d by the FCC . think 
about what you're doing— if you 
think it's funny then fine, if it's 
pandering then stay away or you run 
the risk of gi'tting in trouble" 

However, the ultimate dec-ision on 
what IS inappropriate can truly be left 
up to the listener Many programs 
such as Howard Stem's show and 
Mancow MuUer > show are carried in 
syndication and doing quite well in 
the ratings. Harper employee Ken 
Dillard sums it up best: "If someone is 
offended by -sometfung said on the 
radio, they can always turn it off."

The Chicago Park District 
has something to offer for 
many people who might not 
otherwise get to enjoy the gift 
of music. "Special Music By 
Special People" started a few 
years back when Chicago 
musician |oe Yost, who had 
just been hired by the park 
district to teach music classes, 
walked in the door. 

"When I walked in to 
teach the first i!as>, 1 was ter- 
nfiev.1", said 'iKst, who wasn't 
cjuite sure how to react to the 
peiiple in the class, most of 
whom are physically and /or 
mt-nlally challenged His job 
was to teach them music 

Yost lx'f;an workmg with 
the musmans, and word 
began \o j;ft around. The 
classes grew in populanty, 
and thev began actually com- 
p(»ing s*ings 

"Sometimi-s we come up 
with new stufi, and si>me- 
times we have bad days and 
we lust sit around singing 
Beatles stuff." explained Yost 
Original songs include "The 
Donut Song", "Color of 
love" and "Rocky". 

"Color of Love" had an 
interesting story behind it 
The class started coming up

rhyme them It was a collec-

enhre class," said Yost. 

Once the musicians began 

SfMClal Musicians perform 

composing stmgs, they began 
to put on performances Past 
performance credits have 
included the "Taste of 
Chicago" tistoal, as well as 
performing at their own ben- 
efit shows 

Yosts project recently 
received a grant which 
enabled the park districi to 
build its own studio The CD 
was mostly recorded there. 
"What's l-or lunch" is the 
name of the CD that has been 
eagerly awaited by the musi- 
cians for years. 

"When 1 got the CD's back 
fn>m the sUidio, 1 ttxik some 
of them in to show the kids 
This one guy who has Down 
Syndrome and can hardly 
speak saw the CD and the 
pictures and he somehow 
knew thai he was a part of it. 
He smiled this big gnn from 
ear to ear and hold the CD 
close to his heart. The kids ate 
all so proud of the CD," said

The Harbinger 
April 19, 19% 

Our View 

An agenda for 
Student Senate: 

The recent Student Senate elections 
were a success as far as voter participa- 
tion IS concerned. Over 190 voters cast 
ttieir ballots for the 1^6-1997 Student 
Senate and Student Trustee. It's not 
spectacular, but it sure beats last 
spring's turnout of 4.? votes 

However, the controversv surround- 
ing the elections has cast a shadow 
over the small gains that have been 
made. Are we in for more trouble with 
the Student Senate? Will personality 
clashes and bickering among senators 
remain the norm? 

The Harbinger challenges newly 
elected Senate President Caroline 
Saccomanno to take control over the 
Senate and give Harper College stu- 
dents the representation that they 
deserve. We also challenge each and 
every student to hold the Senate 
accountable for their actions, or lack 
thereof, throughout the year. 

Remember that the Senate, and the 
Student Trustee, represent the students' 
interests to the administration. It is the 
students' responsibility to make sure 
that they inform the Senate as to what 
those interests are. Representation is a 
two-way street. The Harbinger 
pledges to assist students and the 
Senate in their efforts to attain their 
goal of achieving an effective form of 
student government. 

Is the Student Senate ivady to do its 
part? Are you, the studtmts. ready to 
do yours?

Is this how we're winning the war on crime? 

The Ed's Vim 

Gone are the days when 
cnminab paid for their 
crime in a way thai could 
actually be called punishment 
"Hard time" has tjeen replaced 
with weight rooms, libraries that 
put many local examples to 
shame, cable television, health 
can? coverage that t>eats what 
many iaw-abiding citizens have, 
and lawsuits over ttie portions of 
fcKx) served Boy. we sure are 
winning the war on crime 

By now you've pri>bably 
heard about the illegal aliens who 
got clubi>ed to within an inch of 
their lives in Cahfomia after 
attempting to evade authorities. 
You've probably also heard of the 
red carpet treatment we've given 
them because of it. Where else 
but in America can people speak 
out about being so determiived to 
fight crime yet be so compassion- 
ate to those who cause it? 

The "victims" were illegal 
aliens that led tfie police on a 
high-speed chase, reaching 
speeds in excess of 100 miles per 
hour, while throwing things at 
the police cars in pursuit. Thev 
caused several collisions along 
their drive. Upon being caught, 
the police struck the two passen- 
gers outside of the cabin of their 
pickup truck several times with 
their clubs And now, instead of 

rewarding these men for their 
actions, we're raking them over 
the coaLs as if they are the bad 

A lot of civil rights activists 
clamor about how their rights 
were violated Someone should 
remind these ptMple that the 
"victims" an? not United States 
citizens, so they are not covered 
by the same rights that protect 
us If my vehicle and /or perscin

was involved in one of the acci- 
dents they caused. 1 assure you 
that the wrath 1 would bring 
upon them would make a club- 
bing seem petty. 

Thousands of foreigners 
immigrate into the Uruted States 
each year (the right way) and go 
on to tiecome responsible, 
respectful citizens. But 1 just can't 
see a bunch of trouble makers 
who think they're better than 
those who go through tfie proper 
channels for citizenship becom- 
mg pillars of our society. What I 
do see is our country's over- 
stressed welfare system and other 

precious resources getting taxed 
by people who aren't entitled to

and give their country a bad 

This incident could have sent 
a very positive message. It could 
have let the world know ttiat we 
are serious at>out slopping the 
flow of illegal aliens pouring 
through our tiorders. It would 
have shown everyone what hap- 
pens when you break the law in 
America. But no, we had to show 
unjust pity. 

Of course, this is just one 
example of the slime of this coun- 
try (and continent) getting away 
with every crime under the sky 
tiecause we are so easy on crimi- 
nals. If you want another exam- 
pW, look to the standoff in 
Montana. Or the Menendez 
brothers' trial /fiasco. 

1 find it strangely amusing 
how so many people can com- 
plain about crime and yet be so 
easy on the criminals that are 
caught. Until we start getting 
tough on the slime we manage to 
catch, it's only going to get 

To the officers involved in the 
chase, I commend you for your 
actions while in the line of duty. 
It's officers like you that keep our 
country safe. To all illegal aliens 
or anylx)dy thinking of liecomiixg 
one, enter my t>eloved country

The "Gilded Age" claims Rostenkowski 

ITW. FMiIrr 

1n>in the tune he entered congrKW aver 6uTty- 
\ five years tffo, until his recent indktment for 
misusing official funds and stealing money 
Ifroan the Hotue Poai Office, Dan Roslenlwwski 
■had been conndavd a hero by many in his. the 
Ififth'districtof Oiicago A man to look up to, 
I want to shake hands with; point out to your chil- 
Idien and hope thev grow up to be like. 

He was the man, and as chairman of the House 
I Ways and Means Committee, he enjoyed power 
I and prt^lige equakKJ to, if m>l surpassed by. at 
I tunes, the President of the Unitcsi Staliis. 

Now he is just another corrupted potitidan; a 
I statistic; a renmant of the once famous Qlded 
I Age. 

A man who could have asked for, and 
obtained, anything he wanted by way of legal pto- 
I cession, in his insipidly jeiune betvavior detracted 
I from his responsibilities (aruj ivquirpments), <inly 
to find lumself on the front steps of a federal cour- 
thouse, facmg a multitvide of reporters wtule a 
cold rain (symbolK-ally) poured down on him, so 

he could explain to his once loyal supporters that 
even though he made some irremissible, monu- 
mental mistakes, he was merely being "smgled 
out" for the purpose by which "to be held up by 
law enforcement as an example" ot what happens 
to those who do wrong. 

The most provocative, and telling, manifesta- 
tion provided from the courtroom where he had 
been castigated (and whittled down to size) by the 
judge was his postulation of the rules and regula- 
tions that he took an oath to uphold, as he 
•aw it, stealing, defrauding, and ghost payrolling 
were merely "A practice that was oiKe common 
in congress*. 

Not only has he admitted to corruption being 
rampant in congress, but he is using it as an 
excuse to abate fus demoralized judgements. 

In effect, h*- is saying that because it (corrup- 
tion) is "there", why should he be to blame tf he 
uses is; especially when everyone else around him 
is doing the same. 

It is as If the Gilded Age had never wfiotly 
been vanquished, but instead thnved and became 
eiKulturated. indoctrinated, and celebrated in our 
•ociety and within all walks of politics, from the 

local tevel to the federal level so much so that it 
was unnecessary for corruption to travel incogni- 
to. And why should it; for if the voters are t¥)t apt 
to put a stop to it, why should the politicians. 

Perhaps it's a stn>ke of irony that Dan 
Rostenkowski should be the one who is headed of 
to jail aivl not the real criminal which is us; we 
gave politicians free access to corruption and 
blindly looked the other way when we knew it 
was occurring. 

And although he may never enter f>olitics 
again lor the remainder of his life, Rostenkowski 
still can hold up high his head and look to the 
bright, sun-filled future and remind himself that 
not all is obsolescent; because two years from now 
while we, the honest, law-abiding citizens sweat 
and labor 80 hours a week at two separate jobs in 
the hope we can put food on the table and pay oui 
bills, Dan Rostenkowski (who will have already 
paid his "debt" to society) will be living off his 
S1(X),000 a year pension. 

Is it a wonder that people turn to politics when 
all else fails. It us the one true institution where 
even if you don't get away with the crime you still 
are amply rewarded 

The truth is out there- 
you just need to find it 

student supports GLB choice 
of refusing to admit reporter 

Kenneth Dilknl 
Guest Writer 

In a political «m of coBipUining 
aiKl whining about candidates, 
media and partisanship, it's ironic 
'hat the general public conhnues to 
i-ly on sound biles and polls to make 
:noat of its decisiont. 

How else to explain 72 perewit of 
•he r\ation still believing the economy 
^ in either only fair or poor condi- 

What other reason could there be 
■or President Clinton tt> hold a dou- 
ble-digit lead when 
little u\'er a year ago 
he was at a recont- 
■ iw in public 
jpproval polls' 

What otfHT wjv 
could 15 percent of 
the voting publh; be 
duped into thinking; 
Ross Perot is still i 
viable candidate for 
the presidency? 

The television, 
that great messenger of information, 
has become our main source for infor- 
mation on ptilitKs and candidates. 
Voters now rely on the remote control 
to help them decide w hn gets in 
which office. 

SiMne unseen pixel -like continental

zines from the majontv ai AmerKans' 
lives, replacing them with lik--»ized.

engineered to win Academy awards. 

If the trend continues, 1 look for-

the most poignant 
line describing the 
search for answers 

conies from a televi- 
sion shot 

ward to seeing (insert Seinfeld cast

That would tit perfectly during an 
episode of ER m which the doctors

A great tie-in. And it jjujrjntit's to 
generate money for the candidate and 
more useless sound-bite information

I'll have to cut this short a- it s 
hme to go gather more informafRin 
on the candidates How else am I sup- 
posed to know that President Clinton 
kept his promise and. under his 
administration, almost eight miUion 
jobs, dout^le what he promised were 

It's kinda ironic that the most 
poignant line describing the search 
for answers comes from a television 
show The truth is out there. 

I applaud the Gay, Ix-sbian, 
Bisexual (CLB) group for excluding 
a heterosexual Harbinger reporter 
from tfieir meeting (April .S issue) 
i would support them in excludmg 
any reporter showing up unan- 
nounced to cover a meeting w ith- 
out prior group consent. By nature, 
certain groups require the option of 
anonymity for participants 

For a reporter to show up at the 
GLB meeting and expect co>.>pera- 
tion is naive. Affectional prefer- 
ence is the source of discrimination 
in many arenas, including in hous- 
ing, hiring and general ta-atment 
Until this changes, gay, lesbian and 
bisexual students deserve a safe 
haven for airing their concerns 
without the threat of being involun- 
tarily "outed " 

Perhaps if Rose Marie Hylton 
approached the GLB group differ- 
ently, she could attend and report 
on their meeting. If no one attend- 
ing wanted his or her name in 
print, would the article still be writ- 
ten? If, in addition, Hylton were 
not allowed to describe these stu- 
dents with any specific identifying 
details, such .is age, 
description or an?a of study, would 
the meeting still be covered'' If the 
attendees requested right of refusal 
or editing nghts on the final piece 
to assure th 

e pnvacy of members, would the 
Harbinger editorial staff make 
changes or offer to kill the story? 

I would like to see coverage of 
GLB group meetings if the 
Harbinger staff can meet require- 
ments imposed by the group. I ask 
that the GLB group meet this chal- 
lenge and create terms under which 
the Harbinger can cover their meet- 
mg. Perhaps some students on 
campus need to hear about this 
group and to know it is a safe 
haven. Perhaps certain students 

will attend meetings and say they 
are heterosexual because they are 
afraid to say the words, "I think 
I'm gay." out loud 

Further, 1 would urge fiarper 
Student Activities to support this 
group financially if student interest 
is at an appropriate level. A 
Student Activities spokesperson 
confirmed that Harper supports 
activities which cater to specific 
ethnic or raaal groups. "There is an 
Alcoholics Anonymous group 
sponsored by Health Services 
which has closed meetings. 
Although most Harper groups are 
open, not all students would be 
comfortable or intercshng in 
atteiviing. In addition to GLB, 
future groups 

might form which exclude certain 
students, such as a support group 
for women who have been sexually 
assaulted. Student Activities clari- 
fied that since Harper activities ane 
funded through student fees rather the government, open meet- 
ings are not k'gally required. And 
tfiis is fine with me. 

Down the line, if GLB is success- 
ful in becoming an ongoing student 
activity, 1 would urge them to do 
educatioiul outreach into the het- 
erosexual community. This might 
increase awareness of the issues 
homo- and bi- sexuals face, especial 
ly on<ampus, and create a more 
open atmosphere After all, some 
of my best friends live in closets, 
and a closet is a suffocating place to

ceUation of the program 

"The numbers have gone down 
coaiistently year after year Plus, we 
don't have any competition, said 

Harper was one of only three 
schools m northern Diinois to field a 
team for lf»e 19% seaMm. The otfwr 
two schooLi were the CtiUege of 

DuPage and Tnton. 

Coaches Gordon Aukerman and 
Tom Strzewski were praised tor their 
"excellent coaching." Strzewski 
(<nned the paigram just this year 

Ckitham said, "Gordon had some 
excellent team-i in the past." 

The members of the 1 W5 women's 
swimming team were named as the 
Athletes of the Year by The lUrhn,;n 

The women's team went undefeat- 
ed from 1'W2-1W.S m regular seawn 

They also earned a regional cham- 
pionship and a fourth place finish at

the 1996 women's team. Day walked 

away from nationals a three-tinne All- 

Amencan in the -KKI individual med- 
ley, the S(» and the \bS(). 

Day qualified for the maximum 
number of events at nationals (.1) She 
finished third m the 1650. 

It w .IS the highest placement of an 
Illinois swimmer, male or female, at 
the national champioaships 

Day also broke her nvvn vIkwI 
records m the IhSO and 40I-) individual 

Strzewski joined the coaching statt 
tor the 19% seast>n following a suc- 
cessful career at the high schi>ol le\'el 

Strzewski spent three years as a 
diving coach at Hinsdale South high 
school wliere he placed all but one 
seiuor diver at an NCAA Division I 

"Diving is a very relaxing sport," 

said Strzewski in an interview priorj 
to the start of the 19% season. 

Strzewski also described the team| 
as hard working while compliment- 
ing the quality of Harper's program 

Harper's atfjetic program will not I 
be short a sport for the l'Wv-97 acad- 
emic year 

Harper will be adding a women si 
SI veer team in the fall. The Wellness I 
[pulsion is currently searching for a[ 
coach tor the team. 

Mens basketball, football and I 
Softball are also looking for new I 
coaches tor next season The tixitball I

Allegations by senate officials that 
Wyer didn't attend board meetit>gs. prop-

on his nnail, are all grounds for impeach-

Wyer's letiignatian isn't the first set
