In Favor of 


For more than a decade, America 
follo\ved the route set by Republican 
Presidents Ronald Reagan and 
George Bush. But in 1993, Arkansas 
Governor Bill Clinton and his run- 
ning-mate, Tennessee Senator Al 
Gore, made history to the tune of 
Fleetw^ood Mac's classic song,( "Don't 
Stop) Thinking About Tomorrow." 

Clinton became the first Demo- 
cratic President of the United States 
since 1980. Amid the usual media 
scandals and the unusual discussion 
caused by third-party candidate H. 
Ross Perot, a wealthy Texas busi- 
nessman, Clinton promised to change 
the "politics as usual" slogan of the 
Republican years. 

At the University, student voters 
turned out in record numbers to show 
their concern for the future, said 
workers at the polling stations. 

"This restores my hope that stu- 
dents really do care about voting and 
making a contribution to their own 
lives," said Lesley Grouse, a worker 
in Precinct 4. 

"Almost all of the voters registered 
in this precinct have voted. This is an 
unusually high turn-out," said 
Esterica McGill, the w^arden of Pre- 
cinct 2. Out of about 4,000 registered 
student voters in Precincts 2,4,5, and 
10, more than 3,700 actually voted in 
the election. 

"It is our generation that will be 
deciding on issues, and by voting w^e 
are showing w^e care about ^vhat hap- 
pens to the country," said Josh 
Wardop, a sophomore engineering 
major. He said he thought it was 
great that a group of his friends got 
together and voted. 

"It's our future, and when students 
complain about the government 
when they haven't voted, I think it's 
hypocritical," said John Mitchell, an 
undecided freshman. He said he 
wanted to vote to try to make a 

"This w^as my first chance to vote in 
an election," said Kathy Fleming, a 
junior history major. "I can't see why 
anyone w^ouldn't vote when it's such 
an easy thing to do, and it's so very 
important to the future of our coun- 
try, and to my o^vn future."

Politics Upside 

Bill Clinton's victory in the presi- 
dential election will have a positive 
impact on a wide range of issues 
facing the nation, according to sev- 
eral University professors. 

Matthew Chametzky, a legal stud- 
ies lecturer, said he hopes to see 
Clinton put -women and people of 
color into positions of power, so that 
the country's cultural make-up will 
be truly represented in the govern- 

"Reinstate vitality into Roe vs. 
Wade, and stop the erosion of the 4th 
Amendment," said Chametzky. "Re- 
flect a more multicultural vie^v of 
reality in his approach to the law." 

"With Governor Clinton as presi- 
dent, I see the country going in a very 
different direction injudicial appoint- 
ments," said David Schimmel, a pro- 
fessor of education. 

"I anticipate the appointment of 
people w^ho see abortion as a right 
and who tend to promote separation 

of church and state. Regarding edu- 
cation issues, I see Governor Clinton 
committed to providing increased 
assistance by the federal government 
to schools themselves and to stu- 
dents, as president," he said. 

"Bill Clinton has had an excellent 
record for improvements in the pub- 
lic education system in Arkansas," 
said Associate Professor of Educa- 
tion Patricia Anthony. "I think w^e 
now have a real advocate for educa- 
tion in the White House." 

"With the election of Governor 
Clinton, I expect less w^eakening of 
environmental policy and I expect 
him to take steps to stop the efforts of 
the Bush administration to weaken 
environmental policy," said Environ- 
mental Director Joseph Larson. 

"Under President Clinton, I ex- 
pect a much more active policy in 
foreign affairs and less acceptance of 
governments as they are," said Karl 
Ryavec, a political science professor. 

"I expect a bit more 
pressure on govern- 
ment to act more hu- 

"With the election of 
Governor Clinton, I an- 
ticipate more emphasis 
on human rights and 
less interventionary ac- 
tion from a geopolitical 
point of view," said 
James Der Derian, an associate pro- 
fessor of political science. 

"Bill Clinton did extremely well in 
coming out and trying to create a 
new spirit of community, in calling 
on people in trying to energize them 
as Kennedy did," said Ervin Staub, a 
psychology professor. "One question 
is whether Clinton will try to bring 
this spirit of community and caring 
into the real world, into human rights 
issues, moving outw^ard, into con- 
cerns like Bosnia."

Balloon animals and free brownies 
marked the grand opening of the 
William D. Mullins Memorial Cen- 
ter, as people from the University 
and surrounding communities gath- 
ered to tour the multidimensional, 
$48.8 million dollar facility. 

With the Mullins Center, the Uni- 
versity has entered the world of big- 
time sports and entertainment. An 
enticement to top-notch basketball 
recruits, the place already has seen 
the likes of Olympic figure skater 
Dorothy Hamill, magician David 
Copperfield, and metal megastars 

"I can't wait to come see the con- 
certs and the basketball games," said 
Matt Kane, a junior zoology major. 
"There's so many seats and conces- 
sion stands. This place is great," he 

Mullins is the third largest multi- 
use indoor facility in Massachusetts, 
after the Boston Garden and the 
Worcester Centrum. It will be the 
site for future university convoca- 
tions, commencements, theatrical 
productions, trade shows, and con- 
ferences. And with two Olympic-size 
ice rinKLS, hockey will return to the 
sports program after a 15-year ab- 

"I really wish that this could've 
been built sooner, because I only 
have one semester left to enjoy it," 
said Pa in Stopek, a senior psychol- 
ogy major.

anything. In five hours the basketball

opening day to greet visitors at the new 
basketball court.

Mullins has seating for 9,493 for 
the basketball games - more than 
double the Cage's capacity. Students 
say that although Mullins has much 
to offer, the Cage will be missed. 

"This ne-w arena is exciting, but it 
has a totally different effect than the 
Cage," said Melanie Chaikin, a se- 
nior psychology major. 

"The Cage was too small, and you 
couldn't al-ways get seats. Now^, with 
the Mullins, more seats will be avail- 
able," said senior civil engineering 
major Tom Labierte. 

"This is incredible. There's not a 
bad seat in the ^vhole house," said 
Lee Dagle, a senior history major. 

The only obvious problem is the lack 
of a center scoreboard, Dagle added. 

Traffic concerns and a $50 per se- 
mester fee for students to pay for the 
building seem to be the only other 
down sides to the Center. On the 
other hand, Mullins provides em- 
ployment for students, on-site train- 
ing for students in the sport manage- 
ment program, and entertainment 
close to home. 

"Any place that gives away balloon 
animals is the place for me," said 
Rich Toomey, a senior communica- 
tions major.

Driving Us Crazy 

There's much more to being a 
Pioneer Valley Transit Authority bus 
driver than dodging pedestrians and 
squirrels, and keeping the wheels 
off the curb, according to Eric 
Coakley, a senior anthropology ma- 

"The drivers are really good," he 
said. "If you have decent concentra- 
tion and road skills, anyone can 
learn. You need a class B (commer- 
cial driver's) license, and (the train- 
ing period) is about 10 two-hour ses- 
sions, which goes by pretty quickly." 

The application process involves 
an interview and a road test in a 
lumbering 35-foot schoolbus dubbed 
"The Wido-wmaker." Coakley drove 
around the backroads on the out- 
skirts of campus, and then was sent 
on his w^ay. A w^eek later, he was 
hired and his career as a bus driver 

UMass Transit works in conjunc- 
tion with the PVTA to operate 14 
routes daily, serving the Five Col- 
lege area and the surrounding com- 
munities of South Deerfield, 
Sunderland, and Belchertown. 

The 39 buses carry 21,000 passen- 
gers over 4,500 miles each day. Of 
the more than 120 drivers, 90 per- 
cent are UMass students, many of 
whom also serve as managers, train- 
ers, and mechanics' assistants. 

Coakley said he appreciates the 
job for numerous reasons: the pay is 
excellent, the hours are flexible, and 
the routes are far from monotonous. 
He recalls times when enthusiastic 
riders have plied him ^vith religious 
pamphlets, and "when the 38,500 lb. 
buses break down en route. 

"That's actually kind of fun. It 
sure does break up the day," he said. 
"But there is a certain pow^er in- 
volved knowing that these people 
trust you with their lives," he added. 

There are incentives to do well. 
Students receive UMass Transit 
jackets for the longest accident-free 
periods. An employee of the month 
program is in effect, parties are 
scheduled around the holidays, and 
a Vi^ork-sw^ap system has proven suc- 

Chris Willey, a training supervi- 
sor, is quick to point out the 
organization's professionalism. 

PVTA has the lowest accident rate 
in the valley, and is one of the few 
transportation systems anywhere 
that can claim a zero fatality rate. 

"We're one of the largest free bus 
systems east of the Mississippi," he 
said. "I think the staff treats people 
well here. Once a month we have 
drivers' meetings, which really help 
with problems and questions." 

Of course, there are some good- 
natured gripes that come w^ith the 
territory, said Willey. 

"There are always numerous que- 
ries about bus destinations - read 
the sign on the front, bud!" he said. 
Posters in the main office instruct 

drivers on how to appropriately 
handle "chime ringers," the passen- 
gers w^ho ring the bell a dozen times 
for one stop ("Just don't lose your 

Here's a few^ guidelines for passen- 
gers, to make trips that much easier. 
Loop two goes by Baybank first, the 
Sunderland and North Amherst 
buses both go by Puffton Village, 
and yes, if the bus at the Hampshire 
Mall reads Northampton, then that's 
where it's going. Great, get set for 
endless happy months with the crew 
of PVTA.

A Passenger's 

Many of us have tried The Experiment. You 
know, the one that goes: I have a class at 9:05, let's 
see if I can get to Mahar from Sylvan in less than two 

Of course, some of us have tried this experiment 
voluntarily. For the rest of us it's a normal, daily 
routine. Fortunately, for the chronically late, the 
unfortunate oversleepers, and even the punctual, 
we have the PVTA bus system. 

Yes, these blue and white beacons of hope can be 
lifesavers. The Pioneer Valley Transit Authority is 
a free public service that provides concentrated 
service to the Five College area. 

It is an often overlooked staple of college life, 
although most of us have enjoyed its blessings: 
speed, shelter from rain and snow^, and a competent 
student driver who helps to wake us further each 
morning with a bright smile and sometimes screech- 
ing brakes. 

On the flip side, we pedestrians know a somew^hat 
less benevolent bus system, one that bears down on 
the unsuspecting as vsre place one foot off the curb, 
testing fate and the ability of the driver to avoid a 
collision. Alums remember the joke about the one 
who didn't get away... 

The PVTA is a means of salvation and despair, 
depending on which bus schedule is on hand at any 
given moment, and is an important part of our lives 
here at UMass. Oh, and here comes one now.

In a 

Call the 

In the face of racial tension and violence, 
the escort service is viewed by many stu- 
dents as a source of relief and prevention. 
Students may call and request an escort 
between any of the buildings on campus 
and the outljdng fraternities and sorori- 

"I used the escort service last night for 
the first time. My resident assistant in- 
sisted that I call the escorts when she 
heard that I was walking to the library," 
said junior English/secondary education 
major Trish Wilson. "It's been reliable. I'll 
probably continue using it," she added. 

The frequency of use appears to reflect 
student awareness of danger on campus: 
75 to 100 calls come in on weekdays, and 
100 to 130 on weekends. Two vans and two 
student security workers are available to 
escort students between 7 p.m. and 3 a.m., 
seven nights a week. 

In addition, two patrol cars are used as 
back-up during peak periods. All drivers 
for the service are public safety officers, 
who may be identified by green uniforms 
with security patches. 

"Because of all the racial incidents on 
campus, I think it's best that I use the 
service at this time," said Virgil Hickmon, 
a senior hotel, restaurant, and travel ad- 
ministration major. "The escort service is 
a very good program. And, as a male, I'm 
not ashamed to use it," he added. 

"I think it's great, so much safer than 
walking alone at night. I use it between 
the residence halls. A lot of my girlfriends 
do, too," said Julie Caccamise, a junior 
industrial engineering major. 

The escort service began in 1982, when 
the Student Government Association spon- 
sored a volunteer service. The following 
year, the Department of Public Safety at 
UMass took over the program. Just walk- 
ing escorts were offered until 1988, w^hen 
a vehicle was added to the service. 

"We've done about 50 more escorts a 
night since we got the (second) vehicle and 
did advertising," said Jennifer Fazzi, a 
junior political science/economics major. 
Fazzi is one of four supervisors of the 
student security department. She said stu- 
dents can expect a 10 to 15 minute wait 
before the ride comes. 

Critics of the program point out that 15 
minutes is a long time to be alone when 
waiting for an escort, and that it is some- 
times difficult to be sure of the escort's 
identity, although the vans are marked. 
Fazzi said students don't seem to mind the 

"We get the same people calling all the 

m t 


time. We've got to be doing some- 
thing right if they're calHng back," 
she said. 

Lawrence G. Holmes, deputy chief 
in charge of security, said the escort 
service is one of several efforts to- 
ward improving campus security, 

including better lighting and the in- 
stallation of help phones. 

"We need communication. We need 
to work together as a campus to see 
that this community problem gets a 
community response," he said.

In ITune with the 

i Jj JJ l 

World ^^ 

Walking past the campus pond, 
you hear a wild peal of bells coming 
from the Old Chapel. "Has the clock 
gone mad?" you wonder. Suddenly, 
the sound becomes music and you 
hear a clanging rendition of We Shall 
Overcome or Oh, What a Beautiful 
Morning. What you are hearing is 
one of the members of the Quasimodo 
Qlub practicing the ancient art of 
bell-ringing for your enjoyment. 

Jim Olson, a senior hotel, restau- 
rant, and travel administration ma- 
jor, and Dr. Ken Samonds, a nutri- 
tion professor, are the active cam- 
pus bell-ringers. Any time you hear 
music coming from the Old Chapel 
bell tower, it is either Olson or 
Samonds playing. 

"We try to play at least three times 
a ■week," said Olson. "We also try to 
play for special events." They ring 
the bells for such occasions as fresh- 
man convocation, Hanukkah, 
Christmas, and Martin Luther King 
Day. They have also played for visit- 
ing dignitaries such as Archbishop 
Desmond Tutu, and for the Inaugu- 
ration of President Clinton. 

"I also play for every -winning 
UMass basketball game," said 
Samonds. "I listen to the game on 
the radio in my car, and then run up 
the tower to play when the team 
wins. This was great when the games 
were at the Cage, but the crowd can 
still hear the bells at the Mullins 

Other members of the Quasimodo 
Qlub include James MacRostie, a 
director of operations at the Fine 
Arts Center, Richard Nathhorst, a 
senior laboratory designer at the 
Physical Plant, and Horace Boyer

but dedicated group of university bell-

and Everett Haffner, both from the 
department of music and dance. 

The bells in Old Chapel w^ere in- 
stalled in 1934 in memory of War- 
ren E. Hinds, president of the class 
of 1899, by his surviving classmates. 
There are 10 bells in the chime. The 
original tolling bell also remains 
after being installed in 1889, one 
year after the chapel was built. The 
bells are played from a large clavier 
two floors below the bells. 

"We believe the bells add a nostal- 
gic feel to the campus," Olson said. 
"Alumni stop by occasionally to tell 
us that they really appreciate us 
playing because the bells remind 
them of their days here." 

"In restoring and playing these 
bells, we hope that -we have given 
something back to the University 
that otherwise might have been lost," 
he added.

"Good afternoon!" a voice thun- 
dered above the roar of the crowd. A 
pause. Archbishop Desmond Tutu 
tried again: "Well, that wasn't much 
of a welcome. ..GOOD AFTER- 
NOON!!!" The audience at the Fine 
Arts Center responded ^vith cheers. 
Tutu's first stop on a 10-day na- 
tional tour sold out well in advance of 
his appearance, thanks to the Dis- 
tinguished Visitors Program. The 
demand for additional seating was 

met with an overflow^ room, the Rand 
Theater, that had an audio hookup 
to the FAC. To many, the compro- 
mise seemed worthAvhile. One audi- 
ence member said, "I can't believe 
w^e're almost in the same room as he 

Tutu's reputation as a leader in the 
Black political struggle in South Af- 
rica preceded him to the University. 
The theme of his speech w^as the 
theme of his life. 

"God did not make a mistake in 
creating you. Don't go around apolo- 
gizing for it. Appreciate who you are ," 
said Tutu. "Don't get caught up in 
who is more clever, who is smarter, 
^vho is short, or foolish. We are all of 
equal worth," he added. 

A supporter of the Anglican reli- 
gion. Tutu said he believes that God 
bestows gifts upon individuals in the 
form of potential, saying "It has en- 
abled me to w^ork to my unique self." 

Tutu has had his work cut out for 
him from day one. His decades of 
political struggle originated in a 1957 
protest brought about by the govern- 
ment implementation of a t'wo-class 
system for Blacks and Whites. 

After studying theology and being 
ordained to the Anglican priesthood 
in 1961, Tutu concentrated his ef- 
forts on a large-scale program to as- 
sist the less fortunate, primarily the 
Black residents of South Africa. His 
opposition to the Group Statutes Act, 
a government ordinance to move 
Blacks from urban areas to the out- 
lying countryside, and his endorse- 
ment of the withdra'wal of foreign 
investments from South Africa, 
makes him a controversial figure. 

Two years after winning the Nobel 
Peace Prize in 1984, Tutu became 
the first Black Anglican Archbishop 
of Cape Town and Metropolitan of 
the Church of the Province of South 

"The color of a person's skin is a 
total irrelevance," he said, "but that 
is precisely what racism does. It 
makes one forget so easily." He ex- 
plained how^ this w^ay of thinking 
isolates people to the extent that 
they are no longer thinking ratio- 
nally. "We actually have to learn 
how to become human." 

"We belong together. We celebrate 
our diversity . In your heart of hearts, 
you know you care for laughter, and 
joy, and caring, and compassion. We 
are a human family," he concluded.

Out I in the Real World 

In the Pioneer Valley there are 
many opportunities for students to 
volunteer time and energy toward 
helping others. These organizations, 
independent shelters, and kitchens 
■welcome both those who are in need 
of services, and those willing to give 
this personal attention. 

"(Volunteering) gives you satisfac- 
tion, and it's a re-ward for yourself," 
said Heather Wyrostek, a sophomore 
microbiology major. She works w^ith 
Not Bread Alone every other w^eek- 
end to help w^ith the preparation of 
food for the soup kitchen at the First 
Congregational Church in Amherst. 

Wyrostek said she enjoys interact- 
ing with people w^ho are w^aiting in 
line, and playing w^ith the children 
who come to Not Bread Alone. She 
said the greatest reward is "the sense 
of accomplishment" one gets from 

George LaCroix, a senior econom- 
ics major, said he also enjoys the

Among the year's most popular 
theater presentations were pro- 
ductions of Craig Lucas' black 
comedy Reckless, and the "tribal 
love-rock musical," Hair. 

Staged by the University's De- 
partment of Theater and Edward 
Golden, faculty advisor. Reckless 
is a fast-paced comic adventure 
of life in modern times. It tells the 
story of Rachel (Lynda M. New- 
ton, a senior theater major), a 
naive wife and mother, whose 
Christmas Eve "euphoria attack" 
is interrupted by the news that 
her husband has taken out a con- 
tract on her life. 

As the action of the play un- 
folds, Rachel becomes involved in 
a series of increasingly unlikely 
events. She spends the holidays 
with a bizarre physical therapist 
(Tony Maestrone, a senior the- 
ater major) whom she meets at a 
gas station, wins a fortune on a 
game show, gets framed for mur- 
der, and finally goes insane and 
becomes a psychiatrist. The melo- 
drama presses the audience to 
reevaluate view^s on everything 
from television and relationships, 
to sanity and Santa Claus. 

The lead role in Reckless was 
played by Newton in her Depart- 
ment of Theater debut. No 
stranger to the stage, Newton has 
previously appeared before 
UMass audiences in the student- 
written "sitcom" Bill and Karen, 
as well as the acclaimed Theatre 
Guild productions of Noises Off 
and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. 

"Working in the Theater De- 
partment, there's a much more 
professional atmosphere," said 
Newton. "With the Theatre Guild, 
it's all students and everyone is 
working toward where you want 
to be." The biggest difference? 
Working with award-winning di- 
rector Edward Golden. "It's com- 
pletely different from having a

Written by the musical team of 

Rado, Ragni, and MacDermot, Hair 
boasts numerous classic rock tunes, 
including "The Age of Aquarius," 
"Good Morning Starshine," and the 
rousing title song. 

The UMass production is unique, 
thanks to new orchestrations by Pe- 
ter Fernandez, a senior English ma- 
jor; controversial, thanks to the deci- 
sion to include a rarely-performed 
nude scene; and a glowing example 
of effective theater on a student level.

The tour guide's motto is: smile 
even while you speak, don't walk 
backwards and try to talk at the 
same time, and, in order to avoid 
personal panic attacks, always re- 
member that there are five residen- 
tial towers in Southwest - and they're 
on the left. 

At the University, the tour guides 
are students chosen for their knowl- 
edge of the campus and intense en- 
thusiasm. Their joy at presenting 
their school to prospective students 
can't be squelched by the most 
drenching rainstorm or the most bel- 
ligerent campus visitor. 

Because the first contact many 
potential students have with a col- 
lege is a campus tour, the students 
who lead the tours are well aware of 
their responsibility. Yet, a good im- 
pression is also an honest one, not 
one which glosses over the 
University's problems, or makes the 
situation sound hopeless. 

The guides are asked many ques- 
tions, and they try to have the an- 
swers. If not, they are always able to 
refer the questioner to the appropri- 
ate department where the answer 
can be found. Here are some of the 
more commonly given answers, 
straight from your tour guide's 

• Tours are available seven days a 
week at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., 
from the start of school to the end of 
finals week in May. During the sum- 
mer, tours are offered only on week- 
days. The tour leaves from the Cam- 
pus Center information desk, and 
lasts about one hour and 15 minutes. 
• The route includes stops at the 
Campus Center, Student Union, 
Japanese Elm Tree (near South Col- 
lege), reference section of the Tower 
Library, Bartlett Hall, Curry Hicks, 
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, Cam- 
pus Pond, a dorm room in Knowlton 
House, and ends at the Campus Cen- 

• The library is not actually made of 
bricks. It is constructed of steel gird- 
ers, and the bricks are really a fa- 
cade. As the half-bricks weather, 
pieces chip off and fall to the ground 
- not the whole brick. Edward D. 
Stone was in charge of the construc- 
tion, of the building during the early 
1970s, the same man who built the 
Sears Tower. It is the tallest red

brick library anywhere. 
■ The University has an undergradu- 
ate population of approximately 
17,000 students, and a graduate 
population of about 6,000. The cam- 
pus itself is 1,200 acres, including 
Hadley Farm. 

• The Five Colleges offer approxi- 
mately 7,000 undergraduate courses 
each year, and have a combined popu- 
lation of 26,600 students and 2,300 
faculty. The five libraries together 
hold 4.2 million volumes. 

• The no-fare PVTA bus system runs 
within a 12 mile radius of UMass. 

The 39 buses are driven mostly by 
UMass students, over 14 routes and 
4,500 miles each day. 
• The island in the campus pond is 
called "Isle of U." The water becomes 
warm as it flowrs in from underground 
pipes, keeping the ducks happy. The 
pond is celebrating its 100-year an- 
niversary, and is eight feet deep. 
■ About 80 percent of the total num- 
ber of people affiliated with the cam- 
pus pass through the Campus Cen- 
ter during any given day, and more 
than 6,000 people take a guided tour 
of campus during the year.

In Warm 



In the hour that it takes to catch a bus 
uptown, gobble a pizza, and hightail it back to 
campus for the 1:00 class that is your all-time 
favorite, you could save someone's life. An hour 
and a pint of blood, that's all it takes. 

The American Red Cross relies on the stu- 
dents at the University of Massachusetts. UMass 
is consistently the number one sponsoring do- 
nor in the Northeast (Maine and Massachu- 
setts) region, coming through with more than 
3,000 units of blood annually. 

"Giving blood makes me feel good about my- 
self, and what I can do to help someone else," 
said Wendy Su, a sophomore chemistry major. 
"I don't think there's anj^thing else that's so 
simple and worthwhile. Besides, they give out 
free munchies." 

Student organizations enable the Red Cross 

to come to campus by providing financial assis- 
tance and volunteers to help in the recruitment 
of donors and the actual process of giving blood. 
The Red Cross nurses and technicians em- 
phasize that there is no risk to the donor when 
giving blood. The equipment is sterilized and 
the student is put through a battery of tests to 
determine whether or not he or she is a good 
candidate for donating; blood pressure, family 
history, personal medical history. The blood is 
then examined before it is administered to any- 
one else. 

"It's not an easy thing to do, but those who 
have, come back. It is, I think, one of the nicest 
things anyone could do," said Nancy Marion, 
who has been involved with recruitment at the 
University for six years. 
Marion said the Red Cross hosts an average of 

40 blood drives a year on the Amherst campus. 
She thanked the various organizations who 
sponsor drives, including: the School of Nurs- 
ing, Melville, Thoreau, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha 
Delta Phi, Tau Beta Sigma, Kappa Kappa Psi, 
Iota Phi Theta, Tau Beta Pi, VIBES, Sigma Phi 
Epsilon, Tae Kwon Do, Army ROTC, Sigma 
Delta Tau, Human Kindness Project, EMT, 
Sigma Kappa, Phi Mu Delta, Delta Upsilon, 
Alpha Phi Omega, and the Collegian. 

"I've done it (donated) a couple of times since 
I've been at UMass," said Bill Nagle, an as- 
tronomy major. "It sort of makes me feel better. 
For all the 'mean' things that I do I can make it 
up this way."

;tudent life 



At the University of Massachusetts, as every- 
where else, it seems, people get hungry: whether 
it be the post-party munchies or the deep, nutri- 
tion-depleted stomach pangs. 

Listening to the average student gripe and 
moan might not indicate it, but there is a place 
that provides healthy, smart ways to fuel a body 
for long treks across campus. 

"Although you can't force people to make se- 
lections, they can get a nutritional meal in the 
dining commons," said Joyce Frederick, a nutri- 
tionist. "The four food groups are there at every 
meal , so it's up to the student to make the proper 
choii 3 about what he or she is going to eat for 
"I gi ■ ^ you can't please all 20,000 or so people 

no matter what you serve. I try to eat right and 
at least the D.C. offers all the food groups at 
every meal," said Mike, an undeclared fresh- 

"Some people say they eat better here than at 
home," said Robin Levine, a registered dietitian 
and coordinator of nutrition and diabetes care 
services at UMass for 11 years. "They realize 
that each individual meal can't be tended to like 
at a restaurant," she added. 

According to Diane Sutherland, a nutritionist, 
approximately 50 to 55 percent of the comment 
cards are requests for certain entrees to be 
offered more often or for a particular item to be 
prepared differently. 

"I know that it's really difficult to make mass 

amounts of food, especially for so many picky 
college students. I think the D.C.s do pretty 
well trying to provide a variety of foods high in 
nutritional value," said Laura, a freshman 
Russian major. 

An aspect debated about the system is the 
potential use of a debit card. The card would 
have a set amount that decreases with each 
purchase. It might also be used in cash trans- 
actions at the snack bars or in the University 
Store for non-food purchases. The idea was 
considered but turned down for financial rea- 
sons, said Frederick. 

Waste is a problem for the D.C.s - hence, the 
seconds policy. How many times has someone 
come in thinking he or she is famished enough

to polish off an entire side of beef, take every- 
thing in sight, and end up throwing half away? 

"Take what you want, but eat what you take" 
isn't often a practical policy. That , folks, is why 
the dining commons staff will only serve each 
person one entree at a time. 

The explanation as to why someone with the 
10-meal plan can't eat on the weekends is also 
simple, said Frederick. 

"There is a high absenteeism factor on the 
weekends, and because of the fact that uneaten 
meals don't carry over into the next week, people 
will tend to use them during the present time 
period. The fact is, people will miss meals," she 

A tidbit worth noting is that student money 
runs the four campus dining commons , and that 
all those glasses, plates, and silverware that 
disappear add up on every his and hers tab. 

So, the next time it's chowtime and you're 
sitting in front of the phone with a fast food 
menu in your hand (and it's not 11 p.m.), head 
over to the D.C. and do yourself a favor. Eat

For the past 100 years, the campus 
pond has been a special meeting 
ground for ducks, dogs, and students. 
In honor of the 100th anniversary of 
this focal point of campus activity, 
the Archives Department of the 
Tower Library sponsored a special 

"UMass Campus Pond: A Witness 
to a Century of Change," is the result 
of two years of information tracking 
by Archives Assistant Mike Milew^ski, 
a UMass graduate of the class of 

The pond was originally a brook, 
way back in 1892. The board of trust- 
ees at -what was then known as the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College 
approved a motion to construct a 
permanent dam across it, thereby 
creating a pond. 

The campus needed the pond, 
which is no more than six to ten feet 
deep, to freeze in the winter. It was 

used as a source of ice which could be 
placed in insulated buildings in or- 
der to preserve fruit and dairy prod- 
ucts. Today it is a rare occurrence for 
the water to freeze because it be- 
comes heated as it flows in from 
underground pipes. 

Through the century, the pond has 
not only hosted various forms of natu- 
ral wildlife, including sw^ans and 
popcorn creatures, but also various 
forms of student w^ildlife. The pond is 
w^itness to activities ranging from 
Frisbee tossing and parachute land- 
ings to the annual spring concert 
and peaceful recreation. 

"I just sat by the pond, and it was so 
peaceful," said Julie Veremey, a jun- 
ior psychology major. She said the 
pond helped her adjust to the stress 
of being a transfer student on a nevvr 

The ducks inhabit the pond year- 
round, and are fed by University 

staff during the winter months. The 
sw^an relocates to Hadley Farm dur- 
ing the w^inter, and returns every 
spring to rule over the creatures of 
the water. 

"It w^ould be nice if w^e could swim 
in it," said Nathan Richardson, a 
junior music major. 

But Bill Lambert, a University 
landscape architect, urges students 
to avoid sw^imming or being dunked 
in the pond. Urban runoff from down- 
tow^n Amherst and algae combine to 
leave a lasting impression on bodies 
and clothes. 

The administrators of Mass Aggie 
noted in their 1893 Annual Report, 
the pond "furnishes the one thing 
needful to make the landscape per- 
fect - a w^ater view." 
As Milewski explained, "By starting 
out with one goal, they accomplished 
a number of things."

Once again the ducks of the campus pond 
went on hiatus to avoid the screaming gui- 
tars, pounding bass, and unruly raps of the 
UMass annual Spring Concert. Since 1977, 
artists ranging from Janice Joplin to Queen 
Latifah to Bruce Springsteen have let it all 
hang out for the UMass student body, and 
the ducks. 

This year, the concert by the pond fea- 
tured the area band Canine Bastards, the 
hard-core Quicksand, Richie "played 
Woodstock and the first UMass pond con- 
cert" Havens, the Wallers (previously the 
backbone of Bob Marley and the Wallers), 
former UMass student band Dinosaur Jr., 
and the attention- grabbing rap trio 
Naughty by Nature. 

The show opened with a powerful growl 
from the Canine Bastards. Their high vol- 
ume was a wake-up call for students all 
over campus who were sleeping until noon 
on this Sunday, as well as a reminder of the 
festivities to students who thought they 
might get some studying done. 

By the time Quicksand came on, frisbees 
were flying and people were surfing the 
crowd, obviously worked up by the zeal of 
the hard-core band. 

Then it was time for Richie Havens to 
give students an idea of what their parents 
may have been doing in Washington, D.C. 
25 years ago. His expressions. ..graceful, his 
lyrics. ..deep, his message... freedom. 

The legend of Bob Marley lived on in the 
performance delivered by the Wallers. Songs 
such as No Woman No Cry and excerpts 
from I Shot the Sheriff drove many students 
to light up. ..with excitement. 

Dinosaur Jr., although not very interac- 
tive with the crowd, rocked as loud and 
hard as they had at their previous pond 
concert performances. 

Then it was time for the show to "rap" up 
with some naughty boys from New Jersey. 
Naughty by Nature offended some and 
quenched others' thirst for a little good 
soul. Crowd participation created a sway- 
ing wave of hands that would put any UMass 
sporting event crowd to shame. 

Throughout the day, students cheered, 
bounced, and crowd-surfed to the show or- 
ganized by University Productions and 
Concerts. Mother Nature helped out by 
supplying loads of warm weather and sun. 
Injuries were limited to major sunburn and 
one student's "bungee jump without a 
bungee cord" from a walkway connecting 
the Morrill Science Center buildings. Over- 
all, it was another success for UPC as the 
spring pond concert tradition of fun and 
frolic lived on.

As I walk through the sHding glass doors of 
the Cooley Dickinson Hospital Emergency De- 
partment, I rub my eyes and recall the events 
that brought me here. Two years ago I would 
have never dreamed of being a member of the 
Amherst Fire Department. Yet, when I walked 
up to that recruitment table on the Campus 
Center Concourse, my life changed forever. It 
all started with training: 

"This may be this most exciting and reward- 
ing experience of your life. Remember, we put a 
lot into (training) you and we expect the same 
effort from you," said my instructor. Lieutenant 
Patrick O'Brien, a mechanical engineering se- 

After the night's emergency I hop into the 
ambulance with my partner Brian Major, a 
senior zoology major, and head back to the 
North Fire Station. As we drive up the hill past 
;he Sylvan residential area, I remember the 
[irst time I walked into North Station as an 

applicant to the Amherst Fire Department Stu- 
dent Force. Soon after that I became one of the 
16 students who volunteer their time and en- 
ergy in exchange for training, equipment, and 
housing at the station, if space is available. 

During the past two years I have learned 
basic firefighting techniques, how to drive and 
operate the fire pumpers, and become a certi- 
fied Emergency Medical Technician. I have 
watched 15 other students and friends train 
alongside me, and proceed from firefighter, to 
pump operator, to student force officer. 

"Even though we come from many back- 
grounds and are going for many degrees, the 
dedication and intensity of the student force far 
exceeds that of any organization I have ever 
worked for. And I'm proud to be here," said 
Lieutenant Jeff Winn, a junior political science 

Suddenly, the radio pager sounds and brings 
me out of my reverie. Engine Company Three is 

dispatched to a reported building fire. As we 
arrive at the scene of the fire, the attack crew 
discovers a small kitchen fire that they quickly 
extinguish. All is well, and Engine Company 
Three returns to the station. 

The diesel engine winds down and the station 
is quiet once again. I remove my gear and line 
up my boots with the others in anticipation of 
the next call. I go back to bed to try to resume the 
sleep that was interrupted by the call. Being a 
firefighter often demands that I choose work 
over sleep and, sometimes, my studies. 

"It's difficult to balance my classwork with my 
fire department commitments, but I value what 
the student force does, and I gladly make the 
sacrifice," said Captain Dave Sylvanowicz, a 
senior exercise science major. 

As the members of the Student Force rest, the 
citizens of Amherst and the surrounding com- 
munities slumber, safe in the knowledge that 
they are protected from the threat of fire.

Patrolling by 

Pedal Power 

Long known as masters of the equestrian, the 
University of Massachusetts poHce officers are 
proving their mettle on a different kind of mount 
- the mountain bike. 

"We haven't been able to get anyone to pet the 
bikes yet, but we're working on it," said Officer 
Paul Vlach, coordinator of the unit. 

Seven athletically inclined representatives of 
the University's finest are patrolling the cam- 
pus on two- wheelers as part of a new moimtain 
bike police unit, and finding their mechanical 
steeds offer many advantages. 

"We're highly mobile, and we can go anywhere 
on campus quickly. The bike patrols are an 
excellent way to augment our regular cruiser, 
horse, and foot patrols," said Vlach. 

"On the one hand, this is an opportunity for us 
to be highly visible and approachable to the 
public. You're seeing a face, and realizing that 
police are individuals. On the other hand, we've 
found that we can move quietly and quickly into 
trouble situations, often not even being noticed 
until we're right there," he said. 

Officers on bicycle respond to calls just like 
officers in cars, with the exception of incidents 
such as traffic accidents which require a cruiser 
to block traffic, said Vlach. They wear blue 
police shirts, black turtlenecks and pants, and 
black and white helmets with "POLICE" printed 
on them in bold letters. 

The unit owns six bicycles - two Nishiki moun- 
tain bikes purchased by the department of pub- 
lic safety, and four other used bikes which were 
donated to the unit. The bikes have standard 
head- and taillights, but no flashing emergency 

Members of the unit are present on all patrol 
shifts, and can theoretically be patrolling cam- 
pus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The 
actual frequency of their rides depends on staff- 
ing, said Vlach, and not on weather conditions. 

The unit began training during the summer 
by taking long conditioning rides and practicing 
on a variety of terrain. The officers also at- 
tended a three-day workshop at the UMass 
Dartmouth campus on tactics, safety, and proper 

use of bicycles in police work. Officer Denise 
Duguay described the training as intensive. 

In addition, unit members consulted local 
mountain-bikers and bicycle shops aboutriding, 
equipment, and maintenance. Vlach s£iid one of 
the officers' prime concerns in using the moun- 
tain bikes for patrol work is riding safely and 
courteously around pedestrians. 

The idea of establishing a bicycle unit came 
from officers Mark Whelihan and Thomas 
O'Donnell. Whelihan said they were inspired 
after reading articles about similar patrols in 
Seattle and Las Vegas. 

"Bike patrols increase our visibility and con- 
tact with the public," said Whelihan. "I also like 
to bike in my off time, and now I can do it at 
work, too." 

The UMass officers are in good compemy. 
Susan Jones, director of the International Po- 
lice Mountain Bike Association, estimates that 
close to 500 police departments nationwide are 
patrolling on bicycle.

In Search of 


Like so many students before me, 
I came to this University with httle 
idea as to which academic path to 
follow^. A disillusioned transfer stu- 
dent w^ith 32 theater credits, I began 
my general education classes with 
the hope of tasting a little bit of 
everything, in order to decide w^hich 
subject I truly w^ished to study. 

I -wanted to discover w^hat excited 
me. I needed to find a course of study 
that not only interested me, but could 
also help me gro\v as a person. I 
w^anted to know ho^v it felt to care, 
intellectually and personally, about 
the subjects I studied, not just about 
w^hat grades I got. "What I discovered 
is the Afro-Am department. 

The W.E.B. DuBois Department of 
Afro-American Studies, located in 
New Africa House, offers an incred- 
ibly w^ide range of courses and a staff 
of professors w^ho posess a wealth of 
know^ledge and experience in the sub- 
jects they teach. The courses cover a 
spectrum of topics, from art and 
music to political science and mod- 
ern literature. 

What I find most amazing about 
the department is the people who 
teach the courses. I took "Revolu- 
tionary Concepts in African-Ameri- 
can Music" with Archie Shepp, a 
w^orld renowned saxophonist w^ho has 
worked w^ith John Coltrane; "Black 
Literature" -with Michael Thelw^ell, a 
widely published w^riter who refers 
to James Baldw^in as "Jimmy" and 
corresponds regularly with Chinua 
Achebe; "Afro-Am Short Story" with 
Esther Terry, a truly interested and 
inspirational woman; "Black Politi- 
cal Science" with Bill Strickland, a 
w^ell-know^n political analyst w^ho 
once missed a class because he needed 
to consult with the Clinton campaign 
in Washington, D.C.; and "History of 
the Civil Rights Movement," also with 
Thelwell, who helped organize the 
1968 March on Washington. 
These scholars live their work. They 
have both an academic and a per- 
sonal otake in the subjects they teach, 
and that makes the experience of 
learning with them one not often 
f vailable to students. They bring to 
t jii' ■lassroom an empathy and back- 
grun d that is unique and makes the 
suJijcr matter come alive, providing 
a truly are learning experience. 
1 !^ 1 not begin taking Afro- Am 


courses with the intention of major- 
ing in the department. Yet, the more 
classes I take, the clearer it becomes 
that this is exactly what I want to be 
doing at the University. With each 
course I become more and more in- 
trigued by the issues and the new 
viewpoints to -which I am exposed. 

I am becoming aware of the w^on- 
derful richness of Black history and 
experience that traditionally has 
been ignored by the White educa- 
tional system. I learn from people 
w^ho care deeply about the topics they 
teach, and this has enabled me to 
care more deeply as w^ell. 

Every day I am faced -with a new^ 
iperspective, a new^ idea, a new^ un- 

derstanding. I am beginning to real- 
ize that I have a unique opportunity 
to pursue a course of study that -will 
not just earn me a degree. I have 
gained a better understanding of 
myself, the people I share this coun- 
try with, the problems that arise in a 
land of institutional oppression, and 
the w^ays in w^hich I may help to end 
those problems.

In the 

of Time 


Nick McBride, a journalism pro- 
fessor at the University, was con- 
cerned about his son's academic per- 
formance at Amherst High School. 
McBride said he thought more per- 
sonalized assistance would promote 
better skills, so he and several other 
parents began a tutoring program 
that relies on volunteers from the 
University student body, and comple- 
ments a tutoring program already in 
place at the Amherst school. 

"There's a great number of kids 
who aren't getting to college, and 
they're not getting to college because 
they feel disconnected," said 
McBride. "This is an early attempt to 
help those kids become interested in 

University men and women from 
various majors commute to the 

Amherst junior high and high schools 
each week to provide extra help w^her- 
ever it is needed, according to the 
advice of supervising teachers. 

This one-on-one work w^ith the 
younger students may include home- 
work, papers, and general organiza- 
tion, motivation, and study skills. It 
may also involve helping the Amherst 
students through romantic problems 
or home conflicts that can interfere 
w^ith academics. 

"The students need someone to be 
there who's not a parent, not a 
teacher, and not their age. We're not 
that far out of high school that we 
don't remember what it's like," said 
Jessica Broomfield, a senior journal- 
ism major. 

University students receive two 
pass/fail credits for their time. As 

part of the program, the 20 or so 
student tutors formally meet with 
McBride to talk about problems that 
may surface when working with other 
students, and to discuss the journals 
that are kept as part of the program's 
requirements . 

"It seemed that there -were a lot of 
students who were lacking academic 
skills, and w^ere not being reached," 
said Matt Gerschoff, a senior jour- 
nalism major. "What we were able to 
give them was encouragement in an 
academic/social atmosphere." 

"These students aren't stupid. They 
just couldn't see their futures after 
high school," said Broomfield. "All 
kids think, 'What am I ever gonna do 
with algebra?' We just help them 
want to do something with their

In Case 

The fun part about going to the 
doctor as a young child is never the 
prick of a needle or even the grown- 
up sense of freedom at leaving Mom 
behind in the waiting room. Remem- 
ber those wonderful nurses who 
soothed our hurts and gave us lolli- 
pops (the sugar free kind)? Of course 
we do, even if some of those memo- 
ries do have very cold hands. 

Those men and w^omen began their 
careers in much the same way that 
all nursing students do. Yet the 
UMass nursing program is distinct 
in several w^ays. 

"The practical experience we're 
getting is incredible. We're doing the 
work now that we're going to be do- 
ing as a profession - we're actually in 
the profession. Everything we learn 
now is crucial to our future," said 
junior Garrett Cohen, a Southwest 
residential assistant. 

"There's no other major like this. 
We're dealing with real people," he 

Academically, the four-year pro- 
gram involves more coursework than 
most other arts and science majors, 
requiring more than a dozen nursing 
courses in addition to the University 
general education courses. 

It is an intensely selective and com- 
petitive program. Approximately 200 
students are enrolled in the School of 
Nursing, and 130 more are pre-nurs- 
ing majors. 

Students who stand up to the rig- 
orous training receive Bachelor of 
Science degrees and go on to work as 
registered nurses and physical thera- 
pists, among other nursing-related 
carei rs. 

"It's a funny thing (that happens) 
when I mention I'm a nursing major. 
I get people coming to my room all 
the time with cuts, bruises, head- 
aches, medical questions - every- 

thing," said Cohen. 

After junior Kim Ritter took a se- 
mester off and spent time with friends 
and family, she returned to the Uni- 
versity and enrolled in the School of 
Nursing. "I was influenced by my. 
relatives and kind of fell into the 
program, and now I love it," she said. 
Outside the classroom there is an- 
other vital aspect to the program. 
Nursing students spend an average 
of 12 hours every week working at 
either UMass Medical Center in 
Worcester or Baystate Medical Cen- 
ter in Springfield. 

During this clinical time, students 
interact closely w^ith nurses and pa- 
tients. Students see how a nurse's 
job ranges from knowing a patient's 
history and understanding his or her 
mental state to dealing with con- 
cerned family and friends. 

One of the requirements of the pro- 
gram is reliable transportation to 
and from the hospital. Furthermore, 
when students spend eight hours on 
a weekday in the hospital, and then 
have to be back at 7 a.m. for a second 
day of work, they must often provide 
their ow^n housing arrangements. 

According to Ritter, another strong 
point of the program is that much of 
the coursework focuses on preparing 
students for the boards, although 
this sometimes means 30-pound, 
1,800-page, $90 books. Graduates 
must pass the State Board Examina- 
tion in Nursing in order to become 
registered nurses. 

The School of Nursing is an ex- 
traordinary combination of class 
work and on-the-job training. Al- 
though challenging, the program is 
equally rewarding. And, as Ritter 
described it, one of the most dynamic 
majors on campus.

As challenging as 
a step aerobics class, 
as exhilarating as 
bungee jumping, as 
disorienting as walk- 
ing backwards down 
a staircase, this is 
UWW, the Univer- 
sity Without Walls. 
A unique adult de- 
gree program at the 
University of Massa- 
chusetts, it is based 
in Montague House, 
nestled in the north- 
ernmost corner of the 
Amherst campus. 

Like many of my 
250 classmates, I 
chose UWW for three 
significant reasons. 
First, it is a program 
that recognizes my 
desire and ability to 
learn, even though I 
have been away from 
the academic arena 
for some time. 

Second, it accepts 
the intrinsic value of 
my life experience as 
credit. The junior 
year writing course 
requires students to 
put together portfo- 
lios of their accom- 
plishments. This 
may include written 
material, video or 
audio tapes of perfor- 
mances, or up to 75 
transfer credits. A 
panel review^s the 
materials for each 
student and then 
grants credit toward 

Third, it gives me 
the f rfjedom to sculpt 
my own interdiscipli- 
nary degree program 

- journalism and 
mass media - and tai- 
lor it to fit my skills, 
• personality, and as- 
pirations, while 
meeting all Univer- 
sity requirements for 
bachelor's degrees. I 
have found no other 
undergraduate pro- 
gram that allows me 
such latitude. My 
area of concentration 
is journalism and 
mass media. 

"I feel like I've gone 
to heaven. I have in- 
telligent conversa- 
tion about philosophi- 
cal topics ■with non- 
psychotic people. My 
brain feels like a long 
atrophied muscle put 
back into work," said 
Michael from Or- 
ange, an equine sci- 
ence major. 

The blue-jeans and 
sw^eater-clad, mostly 
thirty- and forty- 
something men and 
women amble in for 
Saturday classes, be- 
lying the tiredness 
and responsibilities 
of full-time jobs and 
households. As any 
other major, UWW 
requires fulfillment 
of certain classes, 
w^hich are held on Sat- 
urdays. Students 
take other University 
courses during the 
■week to fulfill their 
individual concentra- 

Most of the stu- 
dents are here on a 
part-time basis in or- 
der to acquire degrees 

in fields in -which 
they have years of 
■working expertise. It 
may take anywhere 
from one to five years 
for a student to 
graduate. 60 percent 
of all ITWW students 
go on to graduate 
school. Others, like 
Michael, have differ- 
ent reasons for at- 

"I don't even like 
my job. I'm here to 
turn a hobby into a 
ne^w career, one I en- 
joy, so that -when I 
retire in four-and-a- 
half years I ■won't 
have to pump gas and 
liveonAlpo," he said. 
For Michael, a cor- 
rections officer for 16 
years, this will be his 
first full semester of 
college since 1970. 

"I enjoyed the 
classes tremen- 
dously," said Bar- 
bara from North Vil- 
lage. "I looked for- 
ward to Saturdays 
with my peers." For- 
merly a mortgage 
banker, she is pur- 
suing a degree in in- 
tercultural educa- 
tion with a concen- 
tration in visual aid 
studies. "I ■was un- 
sure at first, but it 
helped me take con- 
trol of exactly what I 
^vant to do," she 

The United States 
Census Bureau has 
found that one in 
four college students 
is over the age of 30, 

and that this influx of older students has 
kept total college enrollment from dropping 
significantly. UWW is an outstanding pro- 
gram poised to welcome and support these 
baby -boomers, as ■well as others ■who prefer a 
non-traditional academic path. 

UWW is about re-examining the past and 
putting it into perspective for the future. It's 
about critical thinking, reading, and ■writ- 
ing, the essence of academics. It's about 
experimenting, taking risks, feeling confused 
and uncertain, and eternally hopeful.

That's right, the answer is..."e." For now, 
let's focus on the Stockbridge School of Ag- 
riculture, founded by Levi Stockbridge in 
1918, and the building that is home to 
Bowker Auditorium. (A gold star to anyone 
who knows why the road is called 

As part of the University's College of Food 
and Natural Resources, Stockbridge offers 
students an Associate of Science degree. 
The two-year programs of study include 
arboriculture and park management, equine 
industries, floriculture, fruit and vegetable 
crops, landscape contracting, and turfgrass 
management . 

"Stockbridge has such a good reputation. 
Last summer, I just went to a golf course 
and said I went to Stockbridge. They gave 
me a job right away," said second-year 
turfgrass management major Dave King. 

Although Stockbridge is a separate pro- 
gram, the students share the resources of 
the University and are part of the commu- 
nity. Classes such as "Diseases of Non- 
Woody Plants," "Farm Business Manage- 
ment," and "Applied Genetics" are scat- 
tered throughout the buildings on campus. 
Students use the University laboratory 
facilities, and Hadley Farm provides three 
barns and riding arenas for students in 
equine industries, as well as facilities for 
livestock. Students in the four-year animal 
science major also call the farm home. These 
people don't horse around! 

"Most of the classes that we take are 
relative to what we'll need in the future," 
said Xarin Tamms, a second-year equine 
industries major. "We also go on field trips.

Students arrange 
their own co-opera-

which is required of 
first-year students 
during the first six 
weeks of the spring 
semester and the fol- 
lowing summer. An 
adviser approves the 
co-op, and provides 
guidance during the 
five month period. 
Students have 

worked at local busi- 
nesses such as 
Hadley Garden Cen- 
ter and Nourse 
Farm. Of course, 
their bark is worse 
than their bite! 

"A lot of people re- 
turn to school even 
after they get other 
degrees because 
there just isn't any 
work out there. 
Stockbridge is a great program. Everybody 
knows everybody. You make a lot of good 
connections and, when you get out, there's 
not much trouble finding good-paying jobs," 
said Dan Mayor, president of the Stockbridge 
Student Senate. Mayor is a second-year 
arboriculture and park management major. 
"It's a great way to meet a lot of people," 
said Tamms. "And that's only a part of the 
uniqueness of Stockbridge."

"At the smaller colleges, the class

is great," said Dave White, a senior

Many students agree that the Five

the benefits is the chance to fulfill a

unable to accommodate every stu-

White. "Since it's identical to the

"I decided to take Arabic during 
my second semester, sophomore year. 
One of the reasons I chose UMass 
w^as because of the Five College pro- 
gram, and when I heard I could earn 
six credits by taking it at Mount 
Holyoke instead, I -went for it," said 
Yasmin Nasrullah, a junior political 
science major. 

"Not only is more discussion en- 
couraged because the class size is so 
much smaller, but students from 
other colleges can pick up a fe^w perks 
along the -way. I received a free park- 
ing sticker in a lot that's actually 
near my class - and it never fills up, 
w^hich is a huge relief when you're 
pressed for time," said White. 

"I'd definitely recommend it to any- 
one," he said. "I was always afraid to 
take a Five College class because I 
thought it w^as going to be a moun- 
tain of .-ed tape, but it -wasn't." 

All a student needs to do is pick up 
an interchange form in the Five Col- 
lege office in Machmer Hall, obtain 
signatures from the course professor 
ar-d academic advisor, and complete 
the paper-work before the end of the 
add/ci i op period.

"[The class] gives you a new out- 
look on diversity, in addition to what's 
already available at UMass. It's more 
personable than a lecture hall. I real- 
ize that some of these schools can 
afford to do this only because the 

enrollment is like, one-tenth the size 
of UMass. I mean, I get a lot out of 
UMass because it is large. I just 
appreciate being able to take advan- 
tage of both."

Out of 


Ask Russell Kidd, director of the 
physical education program, -what it 
takes for a student to become a P.E. 
instructor and he'll explain. Basi- 
cally, any UMass student can fill out 
a form and meet -with Kidd for a 
personal interview. So wrhat does he 
look for in a volunteer? He plays it 
mostly by ear. 

"Most people come in -with exper- 
tise in (whatever sport ) they -want to 
teach," said Kidd, using golf as an 
example. Who would apply to teach 
golf, for free, if she or he didn't know^ 
enough about the sport to feel confi- 
dent teaching others? If Kidd thinks 
an applicant know^s how to make a 
sport interesting and fun for other 
students, UMass has a ne-w gym in- 

Except for the very experienced or 
those who specialize, a T.A. works 
without pay for tw^o credits, the exer- 
cise, and what Kidd calls a "great 
experience." He added that nothing 
builds confidence and responsibility 
like volunteer teaching. 

"I took scuba-diving, and I enjoyed 
it, so -when I went to Key Largo over 
winter break I got certified and now^ 
I'm T.A.-ing a class w^ith the Project 
Deep instructors," said Scott 
Galbraith, a junior civil engineering 

The system is a great success, ac- 
cording to Kidd. Since 1978, when 
student volunteers took over the 
teaching of P.E. courses, the size and 
scope of the program has grown 

"Smith College has one aerobics 
class a day," said Kidd. "We have 150 
aerobics instructors teaching 90 dif- 
ferent sections each day." 

UMass offers 78 sports courses, 
involving 275 class sections, 575 stu- 
dent P.E. teachers, with more than 
6,000 s „udents enrolled in the classes. 
Kidd said no other program in the 
country has students teaching stu- 
dents on such a grand scale. 

Students seem to appreciate learn- 
ing from other students, in a non- 
academic, no-pressure atmosphere, 
according to Kidd. 

"Students can ask us a 'stupid' 
question that they w^ouldn't w^ant to 
ask an instructor," said Galbraith. "I 
like to encourage students because 
scuba-diving is really a lot of fun." 
And the volunteer teachers aren't 
the only ones who enjoy the classes. 
"Yoga is great after you've had a 
really hard day. The postures and 

breathing exercises are stress 're- 
leasers', and they help you put your 
life in perspective," said Linda 
Petrillo, a senior psychology/politi- 
cal science major.

The University of Massachusetts 
chapter of Zeta Psi -was founded in 
1975 by a few friends who decided to 
create a hfelong bond between them 
by joining a fraternity. They found in 
Zeta Psi a feehng of friendship, un- 
derstanding, and acceptance. Our 
brotherhood here at UMass stresses 
that feehng over everything else. We 
pride ourselves on our closeness and 
caring for one another. 

In the spring of 1991 disaster 
befell our chapter w^hen a fire de- 
stroyed our house. Two years later 
we are a strong, growing chapter on 
this campus. We hold weekly meet- 
ings at the Newman Center and have 
exchanges with other fraternities and 
sororities almost every week. We hold 
various social events throughout the 
semester and are very competitive in 
academics, with a 2.73 cumulative 

We are an international frater- 
nity with chapters stretching from 
Ontario to Texas to Los Angeles. Our 
eight week pledge period consists of 
learning historical information and 
tradition stretching back to 1847. 
New members get to meet many of 
the Greek brothers and sisters, and 
take part in numerous road trips, 
including one to McGill University 
in Montreal. 

Zeta Psi is a group of friends w^ho 
have come together to improve our 
way of life by finding the true mean- 
ing of brotherhood. This group of 
more than 30,000 brothers stays 
important throughout a lifetime. It 
is an honor to call oneself a brother of 
Zeta Psi.

If you thought the men's basketball team was 
the most successful team at UMass, think again. 
The University of Massachusetts field hockey 
team had one of its most successful seasons 
ever, finishing third in the country with a 21-2 
record and reaching the NCAA Final Four. 

It was a memorable year for head coach Pam 
Hixon's squad, one that was destined to be 
special. When the Minutewomen defeated num- 
ber four ranked North Carolina 1-0 early in the 
season, people knew to take this squad seri- 

"Roll UMass" was the team's slogan, and roll 
they did. The senior-laden team went on a 10- 
game vnnning streak to begin the season, and 
fans wondered if this was the year the team 
would win a national championship. With se- 
nior Philippa Scott in goal, and senior co-cap- 
tains Joy Blenis and Kathy Phelan providing 

leadership on defense, the Minutewomen 
seemed complete. Almost. 

The missing piece of the puzzle was senior 
transfer student Ainslee Press, who brought 
her international experience (she was an alter- 
nate to the Canadian Olympic team) and goal 
scoring ability (25 goals) into the mix during 
1992. Press provided the game-winning goals 
against early season rivals like Temple, Rutgers, 
and Northeastern. But even the senior from 
Mississuaga, Ontario could not have helped 
against three-time national champion Old Do- 
minion, who handed the Minutewomen their 
only regular season defeat, a 3-0 blowout. 

So what did the Minutewomen do after the 
Old Dominion loss? They regrouped and started 
another winning streak. UMass finished out 
the regular season with eight wins in a row, 
then won their first Atlantic 10 Championship 

since 1988 by defeating Temple in the final in 
triple overtime on penalty strokes. 

The A- 10 Championship gave UMass a first 
round bye in the NCAA Tournament and meant 
that they would get to host a second-round 
game at home, one win away from the Final 

It took overtime, but junior Tara Jelley's goal 
lifted UMass past Penn State 1-0, and the 
Minutewomen were headed to Richmond, VA 
for their first Final Four since 1987. The 
Minutewomen were slated to face undefeated 
No. 2 Iowa, and a win would give them a rematch 
with Old Dominion. 

But it wasn't meant to be, as the Hawkeyes 
overwhelmed UMass in the NCAA semifinal 
game. UMass had a 1-0 lead into the second 
half, but lost 3-1, to complete a remarkable 




The team received a slew of awards during the 
season, and Hixon received her third consecu- 
tive A- 10 Coach of the Year award and the 
NCAA Northeast Region Coach of the Year 

Press and junior Jenn Sahsbury were the A- 
10 Co-Players of the Year, and both were on the 
A- 10 Tournament team. Press was also named 
to the NCAA Final Four Tournament team, 
while Salisbury was selected as a third team 
All-American. As for Scott, she was named the 
A-10 Tournament Most Valuable Player for her 

outstanding play, and was also a third team All- 
American for her 0.48 goals against average 
and her 14 shutouts. 

Hixon thought that the 1992 version of UMass 
hockey was a special one. 

"I think what separates this year's team is 
their maturity," she said. "Everybody enjoys 
each other on the team. They've dealt with 
every distraction for three months. They're qual- 
ity people. They have really handled everything 
extremely well."

The attitude of some athletic teams is "it 
doesn't get any better than this." For the 
University of Massachusetts men's soccer 
team, however, the 1992 season is a prom- 
ising sign of things to come. 

The Minutemen ended the season at the 
Atlantic 10 Championship game, succumb- 
ing to eventual champ West Virginia Uni- 
versity, 1-0 in penalty kicks. UMass head 
coach Sam Koch, named the A- 10 Co-Coach 
of the Year, led the players to the team's 
first win ever in the post-season tourna- 
ment, a 2-1 victory over host Rutgers Uni- 

UMass was powered by a balanced scor- 
ing attack throughout the season, with 
junior Randy Jacobs leading the team in 
scoring. Jacobs was a two-time winner of 
the A- 10 Player of the Week award, as well 
as a first team All-Conference player. 
Junior Justin Edelman and freshman 

Colin Johnson added to the offensive punch 
of the Minutemen. Edelman provided both 
the scoring and the playmaking for the 
potent offense, while Johnson's play earned 
him the A- 10 Freshman of the Week award 
twice during the season. 

UMass had to overcome adversity mid- 
way through the season, when, in the 5-2 
win against Hofstra University, co-captain 
Shawn Bleau's final season was cut short. 
Bleau's leg was broken, leaving a huge hole 
in the midfield for the Minutemen. 

Koch called for the players to step up, and 
they did. Sophomore Mike Doyle took con- 
trol of the ball on both ends. Juniors Todd 
Kylish, Chris Merrill, and Matt Edgerly 
raised their playing levels another notch as 
each contributed to filling the void left by 
Bleau's injury. 

Co-captain Kylish was a stalwart when it 
came to defense. His effort was rewarded 

when he was named to the All-Conference 
Second Team. Merrill and Edgerly took 
turns playing Bleau's position, and each 
performed to the pinnacle of his ability, 
which added to UMass' already diverse 

The biggest factor for UMass this past 
season was the defense. Sophomore goal- 
keeper Mark Wolf provided outstanding 
play between the pipes, and junior Ted 
Priestly, the fiery defensive back, usually 
found himself shutting down the biggest 
scoring threat on the opposition. 

In a roller coaster season, the men's soc- 
cer team showed signs of excellence as well 
as inexperience. The entire starting line- 
up, including key reserves, will return next 
season for another run at the A- 10 Cham- 
pionship, and quite possibly the first trip to 
the NCAAs for the Minutemen.

Kicking Up a Storm 

When University of Massachu- 
setts women's soccer team defender 
Holly Hellmuth walked off the field 
for the final time in her collegiate 
career, follo%ving a 2-1 loss to the 
University of Hartford, she appeared 
a little stunned. 

The loss in the NCAA 
quarterfinals ended the brilliant ca- 
reer of the two-time All-American, 
unfortunately for Hellmuth just one 
big play away from the Final Four. 
UMass took a 1-0 lead into the 
half, to the surprise of the 2,200 fans 
in attendance. But in the second half, 
a relentless Hawk attack finally over- 
whelmed UMass and the 
Minutewomen finished the season 

For Hellmuth and fello\v seniors 
Kim Eynard, Carrie Keeper, and Lisa 
Mickelson, their four-year journey 
ended — despite 57 career victories 
— one short of their ultimate goal. 

"It's a difficult way to end it," said 
Hellmuth. "We wanted to keep play- 
ing, to go to the Final Four, but even 
with the loss w^e have accomplished 
so much together." 

Indeed, the accomplishments are 
numerous: four season's with 12 or 
more victories, four season's being 
ranked in the top seven nationally, 
three NCAA appearances, two trips 
to the quarterfinals, and scores of 
individual awards. More importantly 
though, for the four seniors, was their 
role in sustaining UMass women's 
soccer as one of the premier soccer 
programs in the nation. 

"These four (Hellmuth, Eynard, 
Koeper, and Mickelson) were my first 
recruiting class and, to date, my best," 
Coach Jim Rudy said. "I owe them an 
awful lot for their contributions as 
both players and people." 

The Minutewomen streaked 
out to an 11-0 record and a No. 5 
national ranking w^ith victories over 
nationally ranked teams such as 
Washington, William and Mary, St. 
Mary's, Rutgers, and Cornell. 

After suffering through a brief 
slump where they dropped three of 
four contests (including hard-fought 
loses to Connecticut and Hartford), 
th: Minutewomen rallied and with 
an it pressive stretch run, high- 
lighted by road- wins over Top 10 
sqLj'ids Central Florida and South- 
ern Methodist, earned their tenth 


NCAA bid in 11 seasons. 

UMass was lead by the defense, 
spearheaded by Hellmuth, Koeper, 
Mickelson, and sophomore Heidi 
Kocher, and superlative goaltending 
by juniors Skye Eddy and Brianna 
Scurry. Juniors Paula Wilkins and 
Amy Trunk were strong at midfield 
while on the attack, and Eynard ( 12 

goals) led a young front line. 

"I'm very proud of this team," 
Rudy said. "We weren't the most 
skillful team around, but no one out- 
worked us. We earned every bit of 
our success and a large part of that 
goes to the play and leadership of our

Walking through the halls of 
Totman Gymnasium on any week- 
end night, one might hear the clash- 
ing of blades and the thumping of 
feet. Undoubtedly, it's the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts fencing team. 
All of their practicing finally paid off 
with an exciting, although contro- 
versial, second-place finish in the 
Ne\v England Championships. 

The fencing team began its long 
and turbulent history in the year 
1931, making it the oldest club sport 
at the University. Throughout the 
61 years since its 
founding, the team 
has enjoyed many 
happy times and en- 
dured its share of 

For most of the 
1980s and the 1990s, 
the team experienced 
an unproductive pe- 
riod. Many other 
schools and clubs 
that had once jumped at the chance 
to fence the club no longer consid- 
ered it a worthwhile challenge. For- 
tunately, a change was on the hori- 
zon. In stepped senior history major 
Edward Roaf. 

He took over the reins of the fail- 
ing team in the fall of 1990 w^hen he 
became the team's president. A head 
coach was hired, the finances were 
audited, and the first novice team 
was instituted in the spring of 1992. 
The club is now more than 50 mem- 
bers strong and keeps grow^ing each 

The team competed in varsity 
and NCAA invitationals against 
schools such as Boston College, 
Brandeis University, Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology , and the Uni- 
versity of Buffalo.

season with a bid at the New England

"UMass fencing 
regains status in 

the eyes of New 
England coaches" 

In the New England finals, at the 
University of New^ Hampshire, the 
men's team finished an outstanding 
second, redeeming their sixth place 
of last year. They were edged out by 
Brow^n University in the last bout 
because of a questionable call by the 

Freshman sensation Jason 
Trunnell scored what he thought was 
the -winning touch of the day. UMass 
was elated as Brown looked on in 
disbelief. Yet the director said he 
called halt to stop the bout well be- 
fore the touch. 

Trunnell's point 
would have given 
UMass the title of 
New England 

Champion, but it 
was nullified. The 
next stop in action 
proved Brown the 
victor by an overall 
score of 14-13. 

The women's 
team traveled to 
Wellesley College the next day and 
improved from their last year's fin- 
ish by ending the day in fifth. The 
women posted a 9-7 -win over both 
Bro-wn and the Amherst/Hampshire 
unified team, but lost to UNH by two 
bouts, with a score of 7-9. 

Overall, team records and perfor- 
mances improved, a new^ novice team 
was established as last semester's 
novice team gained status, and the 
name of UMass fencing has regained 
status in the eyes of New^ England 

The strong spirit, pride, and dedi- 
cation of the team is exemplified in 
its -winning record. With each year 
we salute our graduates and w^el- 
come ne-w members.

Thing to Do 

Thousands of students and 
alumni exercised their newly-re- 
stored right to drink alcohol at foot- 
ball games, although some wondered 
whether it was the beer or the game 
that drew record crowds to Warren 
McGuirk Alumni Stadium. 

"It's the biggest party around," 
said Steve Mann, a senior plant and 
soil sciences major, agreeing with 
his fellow tailgaters on a particular 
Saturday afternoon. 

Tailgate parties are nothing new^ 
at UMass. The practice of standing 
around in the parking lot drinking 
beer prior to an athletic event is an 
old one, banned only in 1988. At that 
time Chancellor Joseph Duffy re- 
sponded to the local violence sur- 
rounding the 1986 World Series, 
where (mostly White) Red Sox fans 
clashed with (predominantly Black) 
Mets fans. 

Despite vigorous protests made 
by thirsty sports fans, the ban lasted 
four years. Requests from alumni 
and other University football buffs 
finally brought about an experimen- 
tal restoration of drinking rights for 

the 1992 season. It worked, and the 
ban was entirely lifted. 

Now a stroll through "E" lot out- 
side the stadium reveals row upon 
row^ of cars, pickup trucks, and recre- 
ational vehicles with stereos blar- 
ing, grills blazing, and people guz- 
zling. The price of admission for one 
car is $5.00, which includes a large 
plastic recycling bag, designed to re- 
duce litter. 

An important factor behind the 
lifting of the ban was a desire to 
increase attendance at the games. 
Kay Scanlon, of the University News 
Office, said there w^ere about 2,000 
tailgates at homecoming weekend, 
and turnout at the other games was 
also high. But the parking lot festivi- 
ties tend to continue w^ell into the 
first half of the game, she said. 

"There has been a continual prob- 
lem of people not leaving (the lots) 
duringthe game," Scanlon said. "Tail- 
gating is supposed to be t^vo hours 
before the game, and one hour after, 
but the lots just don't clear out." 

Head Coach Mike Hodges said he 
thinks attendance at the games in- 

creased as a result of tailgating, and 
that many people who originally went 
just for the tailgating became inter- 
ested in football w^hen they saw^ the 
game in progress. 

"I'd never been to a game before 
tailgating started, and it's made me 
realize w^hat I've been missing. I've 
gotten a lot more interested in the 
games," said Jennifer Knudsen, a 
junior school of management major. 

"If they come down once they'll 
come back. Our team is great to 
w^atch, and this season has been ex- 
cellent from a fan's standpoint. I 
think tailgating has let a lot of people 
realize that," said Hodges.

The critics claimed that off- 
season controversy, including 
the departure of Head Coach 
Jim Reid, had torn the heart 
and soul out of the 1992 Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts foot- 
ball team. 

The critics claimed the Min- 
utemen were a team without a 
leader and could not possibly 
compete in the highly competi- 
tive Yankee Conference. The 
critics claimed it ^vould be a 
rebuilding year for the "youth- 
ful and inexperienced" Minute- 

But, the critics were \vrong. 
Behind a tenacious defense and 
an inspired offense led by fresh- 
man quarterback Andrew 
McNeilly and tailback Rene 
Ingoglia, the Minutemen rolled 
to an impressive 7-3 record 
under first-year Head Coach 
Mike Hodges, taking the Yan- 
kee Conference and all of Divi- 
sion lAA by surprise. 

"I'm really proud of you 
guys," said Hodges. "We didn't 
quit all year long and we re- 
fused to give up. There w^asn't 
anyone who expected us to be 
seven and three this year." 

In his first collegiate start. 

Ingoglia trudged through tor- 
rential rain and heavy mud for 
148 yards on 33 carries, earn- 
ing the Rochester, NY native 
Yankee Conference Rookie-of- 
the-Week honors. Behind 
Ingoglia's herculean effort, 
UMass downed Boston Univer- 
sity 30-28 before a home crowd 
of 5,846. 

Week four saw the Minute- 
men hit the road again, travel- 
ing to Kingston, RI to take on 
the University of Rhode Island. 
This time it was McNeilly's turn 
to cop Rookie-of-the-Week hon- 
ors, as UMass trounced the 
Rams 32-7, upping their record 
to 3-1. 

Week eight saw the Min- 
utemen travel south to Rich- 
mond, VA to take on the Uni- 
versity of Richmond and a re- 
union with Jim Reid, no-w de- 
fensive coordinator for the Spi- 
ders. With both teams locked 
in a second place tie in the 
Yankee Conference and fight- 
ing for NCAA playoff bids, the 
game had a playoff aura, as the 
Minutemen held the potent 
Spider offense in check all af- 
ternoon, escaping Richmond 
Stadium with a 17-14 victory. 
UMass -was now^ in the driver's 
seat for a playoff berth, need- 
ing to win one of its last games 
to all but secure a bid. 

For the Minutemen, a sea- 
son ending road-trip to 
Durham, NH -would decide their 
playoff fate: a loss -would send 
them home, a -win and it -would 
be on to the NCAA playoffs. 

The clock struck midnight 
for the Cinderella Minutemen 
on that cold November day, as 
a late fourth quarter UMass 
drive stalled five feet short of 
the goaline, sending UMass 
packing -with a 20-13 defeat at 
the hands of the Wildcats. 

The Minutemen missed out 
on the 1992 NCAA playoffs, 
but fought their -way through 
the season on sheer will and a 
ton of heart. UMass football 
fans certainly have a reason to 
look for-ward to 1993-94, and 
hopefully, the NCAA playoffs.

What a 


Despite finishing its season with 
I consecutive losses to New England 
rivals Providence College and the 
University of Connecticut, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts women's 
I tennis team sho-wed great potential 
I in its first season since budget cuts 
I forced the team into a one-year hia- 
I tus. 

UMass finished the year at 3-3, the 
I record Head Coach Judy Dixon pre- 
I dieted for the season's end. 

"In the beginning of the year I 
I looked at our schedule and I thought 
I that w^e would finish at 3-3," Dixon 
said. "Near the end I thought we 
■ even had a shot at 4-2, but we didn't 
I make it." 

The Minutewomen just missed 4-2 
vw^ith the losses at Providence and 
lUConn. In spite of that, Dixon said 
I that the team shows promise. 

"I think our future looks very posi- 
I tive," Dixon said. "I think that w^e 

are one or two players short at the 
top from being an excellent Division 
I program." 

Against Providence the 

Minute^vomen fell 8-1. The one bright 
spot was No. 1 singles freshman phe- 
nomenon Liesl Sitton, w^ho polished 
off her opponent 6-2, 6-1. 

Down at Storrs, CT the 
Minutewomen had their chance but 
were unable to come away with a 
victory against the experience-laden 
Huskies. Dixon said she was not 
pleased with her team's 7-2 defeat. 

"I am a bit disappointed in (UMass') 
performances in certain instances," 
Dixon said. "We need to have more 
confidence coming in and w^e have 
got to play more aggressively." 

Sitton suffered her first and only 
defeat of the year to UConn's No. 1, 
wily veteran Ellen Barrett. Barrett, 
who won the New England Champi- 
onship in the fall, made few mis- 

takes and came out on top 6-4, 7-5. 

The tw^o w^inning points for UMass 
came in singles competition. 
Minutewoman Stacey Scheckner 
beat UConn's No. 4 Maude Bing, 6-3, 
6-3. The other ^vinner for UMass 
was No. 6 Kelly Grim. Grim, a se- 
nior, made her sw^an song a w^inning 
tune as she blasted UConn's Kristen 
Prioa 6-1, 6-3. 

In doubles competition UMass was 
swept aw^ay by UConn 3-0. Sitton 
and her partner at No. 1 doubles, 
Lesley Watts, fell in a close match to 
Ellen Barrett and Chur Sharnia, 6- 
4, 7-5. At No. 2 doubles UMass' 
Scheckner and Pam Levine fell in 
straight sets. 

UMass' No. 3 doubles team, Alyssa 
Cohen and Kelly Grim, were down a 
set but rallying when Grim injured 
her ankle chasing dow^n a ball, forc- 
ing a UMass forfeit.

By now, most people on campus 
have surely heard about the Sweet 
Sixteen season turned in during 1992 
by the University of Massachusetts 
men's basketball team. Stick around 
long enough, and you will also hear 
about the invincibility of our other 
sports teams. Certainly, no one will 
argue that our campus is a stranger 
to athletic excellence. 

However, most undergraduates 
are under no illusion of their own 
grandeur. No matter how well they 
shoot foul shots, chances are slim 
that Coach Cal will come calling. 
Thus, many high school sports en- 
thusiasts are left no other athletic 
option than to fade into obscurity. 

But take heart, athletes! Officials 
at the University's Intramural Of- 
fice say it doesn't have to be that 

Dr. Franklin C. Wright, director 
of intramurals, Zulma C. Garcia, 
associate director of intramurals, and 
Kristie Delbrugge, assistant direc- 
tor of intramurals, agree that if stu- 
dents are looking for an activity or 
even a career, the Intramurals Of- 
fice in Boyden Gymnasium is a good 
place to start. 

"We have a 'sport for everyone, 
and everyone for a sport' mentality 
here," said Garcia. "One of my big- 
gest goals is student development. 
We've had many people from the 
University graduate and become of- 
ficials as a result of their experiences 
here. It's a good way to get career 

Deb Janik, a senior exercise 
science major, began her association 
w^ith the program four years ago. 

"I played in volleyball tourna- 
ments in high school, and I just con- 
tinued because I enjoy the sport," 
Janik said. "This is a good program, 
because it provides a chance to play 
competitively w^ithout being on a col- 
legiate squad." 

Students can form their o-wn

teams or join organized teams, and 
participate in activities such as flag 
football, soccer, tennis, badminton, 
racquetball, track and field, ice 
hockey, volleyball, squash, wrestling, 
basketball, and Softball. 

Teams are divided into three cat- 
egories — men, \vomen, and co-rec. 
Each category of each sport crowns a 
champion at the conclusion of five 
weeks of competitive play. 

Amy Chee, a senior mechanical 
engineering major who has played 
intramural volleyball for four years, 
said she enjoys the competition and 
peer interaction which the intramu- 
ral program affords to students. 

"The program is pretty good, and 
you get to know a lot of people," said 

Chee. "You see the same people hack- 
ing around. It's fun to play against 
them, too. And if you can't play var- 
sity, you might as -well play 

Garcia estimates that approxi- 
mately 50 percent of male under- 
graduates, 20 percent of female un- 
dergraduates, and five percent of 
graduates and faculty take part in 
intramural activities. 

"I think it's critical that we let 
new students know that, hey, we 
have an intramural program here," 
Wright said. "We want students to 
step up and stop by 215 Boyden so 
they kno'w we exist and they see 
what we have to offer."

At the beginning of the 1992-93 season, Coach John 
Cahpari warned fans of the University of Massachusetts men's 
basketball team not to base their expectations on the previous 
year's successes. By the end of the season, the 92-93 Minutemen 
had their own success story. 

The Minutemen, who ended the season 24-7, repeated as 
Atlantic 10 Conference tournament champions and returned to 
the NCAA Tournament — both program firsts — and moved into 
the William D. Mullins Memorial Center, a new on-campus home 
site twice the size of the venerable Curry Hicks Cage. 

But with UMass' newfound respect and acclaim came a 
much more challenging non-conference schedule, including road 
stops at Florida State and Oklahoma, and home games against 
Southwest Louisiana and Cincinnati. It also meant the Minute- 
men could no longer sneak up on the opposition: now UMass 
games were circled on the opposition's calendars well ahead of 

As a result the Minutemen didn't blow teams out of the 

water. Instead, they found themselves coming 
from behind and pulling out last-second victo- 
ries, and from that oft-repeated scenario came 
UMass' team slogan: "Refuse to Lose." 

It all started when Harper Williams broke 
his hand in practice during January, just before 
the Abdow's Hall of Fame Tournament in Spring- 
field. Rumors flew that he was out for the year, 
and losses to Cincinnati and Temple followed. 
But Mike Williams swished a last-second three- 
point shot at Rutgers, giving UMass a victory 
and coining the "Refuse to Lose" slogan. 

Come-from -behind victories against West 
Virginia and George Washington ( another Mike 
Williams three at the buzzer), and a last-second 
win over Temple at the Cage (featuring the 
return of Harper Williams), were the highlights 
of a 12-game winning streak that took the Min- 
utemen from 6-4 to 18-4. New England rival 
Rhode Island ended the streak with a 71-68 win 
that saw Mike Williams finally miss a game- 
ending three-pointer. 

From there the Minutemen cruised to 
the A- 10 title, losing once more at West Virginia 
before polishing off St. Bonaventure and St. 
Joseph's at home. 

The A- 10 Tournament began on an aus- 
picious note with a- 75-61 -win over St. 
Bonaventure. Inspired wins over Rhode Island 
in the semi-finals and Temple in the A-10 Cham- 
pionship game, played before a -wild crowd at 
the Mullins Center, vaulted UMass into the 
third seed in the East bracket of the NCAA for 
the second consecutive year. 

But that's where the magic ran out. A 
listless-looking Minutemen team survived a 
scare from 14th-seeded Pennsylvania, 54-50 in 
the first round. The second round wasn't as 
kind, as Virginia dominated UMass in the first 
half, and withstood a furious second-half rally 
to end the Minutemen's season, 71-56. Get set 
for next year!

With all the media attention Coach John 
Calipari and his troops have gotten recently, 
it's easy to overlook the -women's basketball 
team, led by second-year coach Joanie 
O'Brien. But if you've underestimated the 
talent on this team based on their record in 
the past few seasons, be forewarned: this 
group is on the rise. 

At the beginning of the 1992-1993 sea- 
son, skeptics pointed to the previous year, 
w^hen the team went 4-24 overall and 0-14 in 
the Atlantic 10 division, and declared the 
Minutewomen were in for a long and 
unfulfilling season. Surprise ! The critics w^ere 
wrong. The team went 11-15 overall, and 6- 
8 in the A-10, with some memorable perfor- 
mances along the way. 

"Our biggest high points -were beating St. 
Joe's (65-56) and West Virginia (76-68) back- 
to-back at home," said O'Brien. "UMass had 
never beaten St. Joe's before, and they were 
picked to win the A-10. And West Virginia is 
al-ways good, so it was nice to get those back- 

How were the Minutewomen able to come 
so quickly back to respectability after a few 
successive lean years? O'Brien identifies the 
emergence of four freshmen as the primary 
reason. By early February, four rookies — 
guard Kim Gregory, center Melissa Gurile, 
guard Tricia Hopson, and forward Octavia 
Thomas — joined senior power forward Kim 
Kristofik in the starting line-up. 

O'Brien specifically praised Gurile, the 
team's leading scorer ( 14 ppg) and rebounder 
(8.3 rpg) who made the A-10 All-Rookie team, 
and Thomas, the third-leading scorer (13.6 
ppg) and second-leading rebounder (8. 1 rpg), 
for heading the charge toward respectabil- 


"These are the t^vo kids who really stepped 
up more than I thought they w^ould," she 
said. "They have a chance to start every 
game in their careers here." 

Veterans like Kristofik appreciate the 
life the new players have brought to the 
team, and believe the program is on the rise. 

"It was nice this year, because we had a 
lot of people who could do the scoring, so 
that's why I think we're so much better this 
year than in the past," said Kristofik. "This 
year we garnered a lot of respect that we 
might not otherwise have had. This is the 
best season UMass has had since I've been 
here, and I can only see it continuing." 

O'Brien said that, as good as her team is 
now, her class of incoming recruits w^ill make 
it even more dangerous. She hopes the four 
newcomers — Sabriya Mitchell, Alkanease 
Garrett, Crystal Carroll, and Beth Kuzmeski 
— will help the team make a "big jump" next 

"I don't know^ if they're going to rank this 
(recruiting) class, but I think they're legiti- 
mately one of the top 20 classes in the na- 
tion," said O'Brien. "I think George 
Washington's class was ranked No. 5, and I 
wouldn't trade one of my four for any of the 
kids they've got." 

O'Brien urges fans to get their seats on 
the bandwagon now. 

"I think next season we're going to have 
a very entertaining team, and I think we're 
going to be in every game we play," she said. 
"So if everyone does what they're capable of, 
I think it'll give us an opportunity to w^in, 
which is all you can ask for."

The University of Massa- 
chusetts men's basketball team 
has just finished its most suc- 
cessful two seasons ever. The 
Minutemen went 24-7 for the 
year, they won the Atlantic 10 
Conference's regular season 
and post-season titles, and ad- 
vanced to the second round of 
the NCAA Tournament. 

But for some reason, there 
is no aura of good feeling on the 
Amherst campus after this sea- 
son. For some reason, the fans 
expected more. 

It's a Monday morning, and 
the third floor of the William D. 
Mullins Center is bustling. At 
10:00 in the morning, the bas- 
ketball office is already focused 
on the next season. Head Coach 
John Calipari is decked-out in 
a Hawaiian shirt and has the 
look of a well-rested man.

had time to look back and think 
about it, did the team go as far 
as you expected?" 

John Calipari: "Yeah, I 
think we did. You know, the 
thing about this team was they 
knew how to \vin. We didn't 
dominate teams, we just won 
games. We've w^on more come-

this team w^asn't deep, so it's 
quite an accomplishment."

Calipari: "Yes, mainly for

TV, you're talking about an im- 
pressive sight. It played a big 
part in our perception.

approach, but you can't do 
things with the Cage that we 
can now do with the Mullins. 
Sooner or later, you need that 
kind of support."

They were the first group to 
win the A-10 league, but that's 
not all. 

"You lose the personalities. 
The way they handled them- 
selves w^as exemplary. They're 
all classy young men, and they 
understood they're a small part 
of a big campus. 

"They've all improved aca- 
demically, and they've handled 
their classes w^ell. These young 
men academically set the tone. 
All four should graduate, al- 
though they may need summer 
school, a couple of them might. 
But what Kennard Robinson 
did in the classroom made a 
statement after getting under 
700 on the SAT."

to the State House to lobby for 
more funds for the school. This 

year you're trying to get the 
University to build up the li-

the court?" 

Calipari: "Well, the main 
thing is that I'm able to do it. 
It's almost a responsibility that 
any employee has. If I'm in a 
position to help my employer 
and my company, I'm going to 
do that. Everybody should.

Calipari: "Lastyear was tougher. This year, 
I'm ready to go. I'm not happy with the way the 
season ended, that's part of it. They'll be a -whole 
new team next year, absolutely a new era.

During the past few years, the 
UMass equestrian program has un- 
dergone some beneficial changes. 
Perhaps most importantly, the team's 
headquarters were moved from 
Tilson Farm to the brand new facili- 
ties at Hadley Farm. With more 
stalls, more fields for turn-out, larger 
arenas (both in- and outdoor), and 
more spectator room, the team and 
the academic curriculum have flour- 

More than 60 competitors try-out 
every September in order to fill the 
20 team positions. This fierce compe- 
tition makes for an intense begin- 
ning to a successful season. But after 
the team is chosen, the members pull 
together to form -what always be- 
comes a close-knit group of riders. 

Wendy Ciccu w^as named the new^ 
coach of the team. She led the mem- 
bers from their first competition at 
Smith College all the way through to 
the highest level of intercollegiate 
competition — the Nationals, held 
this year in Ohio. Ramona Petrillo,

During both the fall and spring 
semesters, the team competes 
against 12 other intercollegiate 
teams from the region, including 
Amherst, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and 
Williams colleges. Participants may 




proves a force 

to be reckoned 


score individual points, and eight 
members of each team ride for both 
individual and team points. 

Practices often run late, and the 
shows always have everyone up at 
the crack of da-wn, but that doesn't 

deter the team spirit. Every member 
is focused and determined to achieve 
his or her personal and team goals. 

The team's impressive ability al- 
low^ed the UMass intercollegiate 
equestrian team to reach a new level. 
Riders successfully competed at ev- 
ery show, some qualifying for the 
regional competition and some ad- 
vancing to the next level, the Zone 
Finals, against the top competitors 
from more than 20 schools. 

With plans for next year including 
a possible excursion to Texas \vhere

A Final 

With the opening of the Mullins Center, the 
years ahead are full of promise for Minutemen 
basketball. But whatever happens in the team's 
ne\v home in the years ahead, avid hoop fans 
know one thing: it will never quite be the same 
as playing in the Cage. 

Love it or hate it, the Curry Hicks Cage had 
a flavor and excitement all its own. Intimate, 
and at times stiflingly hot and loud, throughout 
its 62-year history the Cage gave new meaning 
to the "home court advantage." 

Witness to the heyday of the legendary Julius 
Erving as well as many years of losing seasons, 
the Cage ivas UMass hoop. Fe-w can claim to 
know the Cage as well as former Head Coach 
Jack Leaman, who led the team from 1966- 

"The Cage was the best place in New En- 
gland," said Leaman. "It was packed every night 
and we had very knowledgeable fans. It was an 
intimidating court." 

With Dr. J on the court, the Cage was the 
place to be. 

"During Erving's time the Cage would lock 
its doors at 4:30 p.m., so the dining commons 
would make Cage survival kits with fruit, chips, 
sandwiches, and a drink for people w^ho were 
going to the game," said Leaman. 

That's not to say the building didn't have its 
quirks. Leaman recalled one particular game 
against Boston College. 

"Snow that had settled on the glass ceiling 
formed a rain cloud in the Cage, and we had to 
have people clear the floor when it rained," he 

Who can hate a building that has its own 
weather systems? 

But all things, good or bad, come to an end. 
On January 29, 1993 at 11:59 p.m., the Minute- 
men played their final game in the Cage against, 
appropriately enough, the Ragin' Cajuns of 
Southwest Louisiana. 

"It's all over" was the theme of the night, as 
4,058 fans watched the Minutemen trounce the 
Cajuhs, 84-74, and the Cage was victoriously 
put to rest.

Making a Big Splash 


In a collegiate sport, talent alone 
isn't usually enough to capture the 
success that a team seeks. For the 
University of Massachusetts 
women's swimming and diving team, 
success came from several contribut- 
ing factors. 

Talent combined with optimism, 
and perseverance was part of the 
equation that allowed the team to 
improve over previous years. By fus- 
ing hard ^vork and dedication, the 
women capped off their season with 
a fantastic dual meet record of 7-4, 
and proved their worth as a top New 
England team. 

The Minutewomen's prosperous 
season directly reflects the success of 
the program and coaching staff. The 
hard work and dedication of Head 
Coach Robert S. Newcomb and As- 
sistant Coaches Edward Melanson 
and James Sweeney spurred the 
team's athletic, mental, and academic 

Overall, the Minute women placed 
fourth in the much targeted New 
England Championship, fifth in the 
Atlantic 10, and tenth in the largest 
of them all, the Eastern Collegiate 
Athletic Conference. 

Other season highlights include 
winning the Lake Worth Invitational 
in Florida. The Minutewomen also 
defeated six-time New England 
Champion Boston College in a meet 
that went do-wn in history as being 
the first time that UMass women's 
swimming prevailed over the Eagles. 
And in their season-ending dual 
meet, the women broke the colossal 
200-point barrier -when they defeated 
the University of New Hampshire by 
a giant 110 points. 

The Minutewomen proved to hold 
depth and strength in all events, as 
several individuals sought career- 
best times. Records fell in the 400- 
yard medley relay and the 200-yard 
butterfly. The new 400-MR record 
was set by senior Kari Ed-wardsen, 
freshman Jessica Griffith, junior 
Julie Veremey, and senior Lori 
Sheehan. The 200-fly record, broken 
by Ve' emy, was bound to fall once 
Coach Newcomb had recruited the 
explosive transfer from Brown Uni- 

Performance leader of the diving 
squad, junior Allison White, graced 
the A-lOs, securing a third place fin- 


ish on both the one- and three-meter 
springboards. In the New Englands, 
her finesse sailed her to an impres- 
sive second place in the one-meter 
and a place in the Zone National 
diving competition. 

The MostValuable Player awards 
went to the team's star diver, White, 
and the star breaststroker, Griffith. 
Most Improved was awarded to jun- 
ior Kate Riddell, and the 
Minutewomen Award, given by the 

coaches to someone who has "gone 
above and beyond," was awarded to 
Teresa "Calvin" Konieczny. 

Sadly, the Minutewomen bid fare- 
well to the three graduating seniors: 
co-captain Edwardsen, backstroke; 
co-captain Konieczny, distance; and 
Sheehan, freestyle sprinter. The 
Minutewomen are a group on the 
rise, and should prove to be one 
UMass team to keep your eyes on.

Out to Dry 

The University of Massa- 
chusetts men's swimming team 
ended yet another spectacular 
season by blowing the Univer- 
sity of Connecticut out of the 
water at the New England 
Swimming and Diving Cham- 
pionships, picking up a seventh 
consecutive title. 

Head Coach Russ Yarworth 
praises the men for their hard 
work and depth of talent 
throughout the season. 

"The entire team did incred- 
ible. It was teamwork that won 
the New Englands. Our fans 
really kept us going and by the 
end of the competition, UConn 
was very quietly licking their 
wounds -while our fans rooted 
us on to a -well deserved vic- 
tory," said Yarworth. 

The Minutemen swam to 
an 11-1 dual meet finish, send- 
ing their spectacular record for 
the last eight seasons soaring 
to 90-7. The team not only won 

the New Englands, but also 
placed second in the Atlantic 
10 Championship and third at 
the Eastern Collegiate Athletic 

On their way to such an 
impressive finish, the team set 
one freshman record, six var- 
sity records, and five Ne^v En- 
gland records. 

The Minuteman Award for 
hard work and dedication was 
presented to Jeff Wicklund; Jeff 
Shearstone received the Most 
Improved Aw^ard; and the Most 
Valuable Player A^vard ^vent 
to Jay Peluso, vi^hose talent 
shone through in the 200- meter 
Individual Medley where he 
broke four records. 

The men's swimming team 
■will miss its seniors: Chris 
Barrett, Rich House, Greg 
Meymaris, Joe Morris, Jay 
Peluso, and Scott Reed. Good 
luck to all the men next year!

The University of Massa- 
chusetts men's water polo team 
finished their best season yet 
^vith a last second defeat at the 
hands of Navy during the East- 
ern Championships. 

"This year's team continued 
to go the extra mile and im- 
prove. Past years, the sheer 
talent was there but the atti- 
tude was not. This year, we had 
both and that is why we made it 
to the semi-finals," said Head 
Coach Russ Yarworth. 

The game against Navy 
proved that these men are an 
up-and-coming team. With a 
tenth of a second remaining on 
the clock. Navy threw a final 
desperation shot. With the ball 
floating on the line, the official 
ruled a goal for Navy, 10-9. 

Although the team mem- 
bers did not go on to the Na- 
tional Championships, their in- 
dividual effort and constant im- 
provement deserves applause. 
The team now ranks 16th in 
the nation, with an impressive 
career record of 21-3. 

Tasan Engin and Javier 
Gonzalez advanced to both the 
All New England First Team 
and the All East Second Team, 
and Scott Reed also competed 
with the First New^ England 
Team. Javier Gonzalez won the 
New^ England League Mpst 
Valuable Player aw^ard, and Jay 
Peluso received Honorable 

The team will miss seniors 
Scott Deluca, co-captain Dan 
McOsker, Jay Peluso, and co- 
captain Scott Reed. But 
Yarw^orth said newcomers 
Francisco Mariani and 
Alexander Mujica stepped up 
to take their places in the team 
right a^vay, and he seems con- 
fident about next season. 

The new team is expected to 
be as good, and perhaps even 
better, than the 1992-1993 men. 
But there's no doubt about it, if 
they're half as good as these 
guys, it's going to be a great

The UMass ski team is the 
University Athletic 

Department's best kept secret. 
Despite its low profile, the team 
has seen top finishes in all of 
their races. UMass competes 
in the Osborne League of the 
Eastern Collegiate (ECSC) 
against teams such as Boston 
College, Smith College, and the 
University of Connecticut. 

The competitions are week- 
end events consisting of a day 
of slalom and a day of giant 
slalom racing. Both the 
w^omen's and men's teams fin- 
ished the season -with silver 
medals overall in the Osborne 
League, and seniors Bill 
Schaefer and John Soglia 
placed first and ninth, respec- 
tively, in the individual compe- 

The strength of the women's 
team is its ability to always 
have several racers finish in 
the top seed. Led by seniors J.J. 
Tanguay, , co-captain Debbie 
Adams, Dana Breslau junior 
Beth Martin, and sophomore 
Kyri Sparks, the women usu- 
ally finish in the top 15, out of 
80 racers. 

Although the team is gradu- 
ating several top members, in 
the future it will be lead by 
younger racers such as junior 
Kim Lombardi, and freshmen 
Jodi Tanguay, Meredith 
Kotanchik, Heather Olsen, and 
Lisa Pyenson. 

The men's team also had 
top finishes in all of their events. 
For t'le first time ever, a single 

person won every event all sea- 
son long. This w^as accom- 
plished by UMass superstar Bill 
Schaefer, who transferred from 
the University of Wyoming 
w^hen its alpine program w^as 

Follow^ing first-place fin- 
ishes by Schaefer, the men's 
team w^as powered by senior 
captain John Soglia and senior 
Matt Griffing. Sophomores Joel 
Bradford, Terry Retelle, Peter 
Hurlbut, and freshmen David 
Harrington, Paul Giammattei, 
Tyler Gannon, and Brian 
Lenarczyk also fueled the team 
to top finishes. 

UMass traveled to the 
NCAA Championships at 
Middlebury College, Vermont, 
where they competed against 
the top schools in the nation. 
Schaefer took the opportunity 

to ski faster than ever to take 
home two bronze medals , quali- 
fying for the NCAA Nationals 
in Steamboat Springs, Colo- 

At the national level, 
Schaefer turned in the best re- 
sults UMass has ever seen at 
such a competition. In the gi- 
ant slalom event, he finished 
sixth against top recruited rac- 
ers from schools in Utah, Ver- 
mont, Colorado, and Alaska. 

Although Schaefer fell dur- 
ing the slalom run, his excel- 
lent giant slalom result got him 
named to the All American 
Men's Second Team, one of only 
14 men across the nation. These 
results concluded the UMass 
1992-1993 season, making 
Massachusetts a team to w^atch 
in years to come.

bove the Ground 

After fighting an uphill battle her 
entire gymnastics career, Tammy 
Marshall achieved perfection, scor- 
ing a 10 on her final floor routine in 
NCAA competition and winning her 
share of the national championship. 

Marshall, a Hicksville, NY native 
and a senior at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, competed 
in the NCAA nationals for the third 
consecutive year, and was named a 
national champion for the second 
year in a row. 

Despite the tremendous success she 
found in college, many people never 
expected Marshall to reach such 
heights, after a serious knee injury 
almost put an end to her gymnastics 

While competing in the floor exer- 
cise in her sophomore year of high 
school, Marshall tore ligaments and 
cartilage in her knee, forcing her to 
leave the mat for an extended period 
of time. 

"(After surgery) I was on crutches 
for six months, so I couldn't be in the 
gym. I w^as devastated," she said. 
"The previous six months were prob- 
ably the best six months of my ca- 
reer. It was the summer before the 
Olympics, and I was really training 


Marshall said that before she was 
injured, she discussed with her par- 
ents moving away from home that 
summer and training in a better fa- 
cility in preparation for the Olym- 
pics. However, the plans went astray 
when the injury occurred. 

"As soon as it happened, I was 
quitting gymnastics. I was never 
doing it again. I was never going 
back into the gym. But, I was right 
back in. (Gymnastics) is a sport that 
is so addictive you just don't outgrow 
it," said Marshall. 

When she made the decision to 
rehabilitate her knee and come back 
to the gym, Marshall said the only 
way she could continue competing 
with her club was on the "elite" level, 
where she was before the injury. 
How^ever, her club coaches wanted to 
drop her a level, which Marshall took 
as an insult. 

Therefore, she decided to focus on 
collegiate gymnastics, a decision that 
changed her entire career. 

"My parents sat me down and told 
me that they would pay for my school 
and that I didn't have to do gymnas- 
tics anymore if I didn't w^ant to," said 
Marshall. "I couldn't go to college 

without returning the thanks, the 
dedication, the commitment that my 
parents made to me without getting 
a full scholarship to repay them." 

So Marshall ended up at UMass, 
which at the time was not known for 
gymnastics. The program had 
Mitchell, a first-year coach at the 
time, and offered a full scholarship, 
which was what interested Marshall. 
All she needed w^as a chance, and 
Mitchell said he had nothing to lose 
in trying to get her to join the team. 
"I felt it was a risk, but it was a risk 
worth taking. At that time, I really 
had no other options," said Mitchell. 
"To have someone like her with her 
past experience w^anting to come 
here, it was worth the risk. Some 
people didn't even look at her — 
their mistake." 

Now, Marshall's collegiate career 
is over, and she heads off to the 
World University Games trials in 
Salt Lake City, UT looking for a 
chance to compete in the Games this 
summer in Buffalo. Marshall said 
that she has accomplished everything 
she ever wanted to do in college, and 
that all she needed was a chance.

Before the University of 
Massachusetts men's gymnas- 
tics team entered the 1992-1993 
season, Head Coach Roy 
Johnson set goals for his team. 
Johnson knew that his team 
had only four starters return- 
ing, and he knew that this sea- 
son would be part of a rebuild- 
ing process. With this in mind, 
Johnson set reasonable goals, 
yet unattainable without hard 
work and determination. 

Johnson's first goal for his 
team -was to win the New En- 
gland Championship. The Min- 
utemen accomplished this by 
scoring 248.35 points to -win 
the six-team Ne-w England 
Open for the fifth straight sea- 

The second goal -was for 
UMass to finish in the top half 
of the Eastern Collegiate Ath- 
letic Conference Champion- 
ships. The Minutemen did so 
as they finished fourth in an 
eight team field, scoring 242.20 
points, behind Temple, Syra- 
cuse, and Army. 

Johnson also hoped to have 
two or three men compete in 
the NCAA Eastern Regional 
meet. Senior co-captain Steve 
Christensen (pommel horse) 
and junior Jason Braud (floor 
exercise and vault) achieved 

Lastly, Johnson wanted one 
or two gymnasts to qualify for 
the National Collegiate Men's 
Gymnastics Championship. 
Braud finished fourth in the 
floor exercise at the regional 
meet with a 9.625 to make him 
eligible for the National meet. 

The Minutemen had some 
outstanding individual perfor- 
mances on their -way to achiev- 
ing all of these goals. 
Christensen, who entered the 
season as the UMass record 
holder in the pommel horse with 
a 9.65, tied or broke his own 
record five times before scoring 
a high of 9.85. Christensen re- 
ceived a sub-9.00 score only 
twice this season on the pom- 
mel horse. 

Braud shattered the UMass 
record in the floor exercise with 
a high score of 9.70, set against 
Syracuse University. He also 
became' the first UMass gym- 
nast to w^in an event at the 
EIGL Championships during 
Johnson's 15-year-run as head 
coach, as he won the floor event 
with a record-tying 9.70. 

Junior co-captain Jay 
Santos turned out to be a con- 
sistent gymnast on the UMass 
squad, standing out on the par- 
allel bars, floor exercise, pom- 
mel horse, and vault. 

The Minutemen will miss 
the graduating Christensen, 
one of the more successful gym- 
nasts in UMass history. 
Christensen is in the top five in 
four events in the UMass record 
book. Although he will be tough 
to replace, the Minutemen have 
twelve gymnasts returning 
from this thirteen-man team. 

With the improvement and 
development of these under- 
classmen, including the perfor- 
mances of Braud, Santos, and 
junior Jason Fox, the Minute- 
men look forward to a success- 
ful 1993-1994 season.

Women's Lacrosse returns 
after a two year absence 



Starting over — that's what the 
UMass women's lacrosse team did 
this spring as they returned to Divi- 
sion I action after a two-season lay- 
off. The w^omen were 4-10 during the 
1990 season, before being cut from 
the budget. 

The 1993 team consisted of 26 
w^omen, only three of w^hom had pre- 
viously competed on the collegiate 
level. In terms of experience, the 
team had three second-year players, 
and 23 first-year players. 

The Minutew^omen gained much- 
needed experience as the season pro- 
gressed, playing against four of the 
top 10 ranked teams in New^ En- 
gland — Harvard, Dartmouth, Ver- 
mont, and UNH. 

Despite finishing the season w^ith a 
disappointing record, the 

Minutew^omen received outstanding 
leadership from the six senior cap- 
tains: Rachael Splaine, Melissa 
Cellucci, Sam Eustace, Nancy Kane, 
Juliet Midlik, and Amy Greene. 

Splaine led the attack on the of- 
fense, scoring 90 percent of the 
Minutew^omen's goals. Splaine is 
likely to return to the team as a fifth- 
year senior, as she still has a year of 
eligibility remaining. Cellucci, an 
attack -wing, v^ras hampered by inju- 
ries throughout the season, yet did a 
fine job in her leadership role. 

Eustace showed versatility, by play- 
ing defense for the first half of the 
year and sw^itching to attack for the 

second half. Kane w^as the leader on 
the defense, praised by the coaching 
staff at the conclusion of each and 
every game. 

Midlik, a right attack w^ing, w^as 
skillful and exceptionally fast. 
Greene, the left attack w^ing, also 
sho"wed tremendous speed and played 
■well despite the fact that it was her 
first year of lacrosse. 

This season w^as the first in a re- 
building process. Loaded w^ith a 
strong group of freshmen and sopho- 
mores, and the addition of former 
Yale Head Coach Francesca 
DenHartog, the Minutew^omen are 
on the short road to becoming a Divi- 
sion I power in women's lacrosse.

Going Ape! 


The Gorillas 

After an uncharacteristic one-year hiatus from 
post-season play, the University of Massachu- 
setts men's lacrosse team returned to the NCAA 
Division 1 lacrosse tournament. However, the 
Gorillas' first-round loss to Hofstra — a team 
who handed UMass a defeat early in the regular 
season — gave an otherwise sweet season a 
bitter aftertaste. 

Led by All-America attacker Mark Millon 
and a tenuous defense, the Gorillas went 10-5 
on the season, including an 8-game winning 
streak and the team's first New England Cham- 

I pionship since 1990. UMass climbed as high as 

• seventh in the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse poll 
and broke two players, Millon and fellow at- 

I tacker Wes Depp, into the national scoring 

I leader columns. 

Coach Ted Garber, in his third year at the 

I UMass helm since taking over for his legendary 

father, Richard F. "Dick" Garber, won his 100th 

career game early in the season, giving the 

father-son pair 400 collegiate wins. 

The young Garber also kept a promise to his 

' father, who asked him to beat Brown. UMass, 
bouncing back from a home loss to eventual 
national champion Syracuse, defeated the Bru- 
ins for the New England title, guaranteeing 

themselves an NCAA bid in the process. 

Garber's Gorillas began the season at Vir- 
ginia, where they led the fifth-ranked Cavaliers 
9-7 after three quarters before succumbing 10- 
9. UMass' showing was all the more impressive 
considering the team had only been able to 
practice outside for three days. A 25-4 demoli- 
tion at St. John's the following week proved 
UMass was an offensive force to be reckoned 

While Garber Field was under snow, UMass 
worked in Boyden Gymnasium and "E" lot. The 
lack of practice caught up with the Gorillas at 
Hofstra. Playing in a two-day tournament, 
UMass was looking past the Dutchmen to the 
next day's game with Duke and paid dearly for 
it, with a 16-8 loss — the team's worst of the 
season by far. 

But if UMass demonstrated one character 
trait all season, it was resilience. The Gorillas 
bounced back against the Blue Devils, prevail- 
ing 12-11 in a close contest that wasn't sealed 
until the final buzzer. That win set the Gorillas 
on an 8-game winning streak, including big win 
number two — a seven-goal, second-half come- 
back to defeat Yale at New Haven. Tom LoPresti 
established himself as the Gorillas' starting 

goaltender — a role he played for the remainder 
of the season. 

Between that comeback win and the end of 
the season, UMass reasserted it's dominance of 
New England opponents, defeating every last 
one of them. Providence, Harvard, New Hamp- 
shire, Boston College, Yale, and Brown all re- 
discovered UMass' regional dominance. 

Simply put, none of them could stop Millon, 
who had four seven-goal games, or mount a 
consistent attack against the Gorilla defense of 
Dennis Kelly, Chris Nentwich, Jim Panetta, 
Kenny Randazzo, and transfers Jim Bjrrns and 
Matt Noone. Any opposing attacker who made 
it through that gauntlet found himself facing 
Richard Correnti or LoPresti in goal. Both posted 
save percentages at or near 60 percent. 

A season-ending loss to Army dropped the 
Gorillas' NCAA seeding from a possible fifth to 
11th, forcing UMass to return to Hofstra with 
the chance to avenge their earlier loss to the 
Dutchmen. UMass led for much of the game, but 
a Hofstra third-quarter rally held until the end. 
UMass pulled to within a goal of the Dutchmen 
at 9-8 with five minutes left, but could not 
capitalize and ended their season at 10-5.

During the fall, UMass crew com- 
eted in the Head of the Textile, Mt. 
[olyoke Women's Regatta, Head of 
lie Connecticut, Head of the 
•harles, Head of the Schullykill, 
oot of the Charles, and Tail of the 
harles meets. 

After head racing season ends and 
ae sno'w falls, the crew trains out- 
oors by jogging, and indoors with 
'eights and by running up and down 
ae graduate toNver stairs. After 
aree long, hard months of winter 
'aining, the team is ready to brave 
lie cold spring for 5 a.m. practices. 
Crew^ traveled to Augusta, GA for 
pring Break training. After the trip , 
ractice on the Connecticut River 
insisted of dodging ice chunks. All 
if the hard work paid off when sprint 

races began after vacation. Sprint 
races are 2,000m long and take any- 
w^here from five and a half to eight 
minutes to complete, depending upon 
the water conditions. 

During the spring the crews raced 
Boston College, Harvard, Trinity, 
Holy Cross, Mt. Holyoke, Navy, Coast 
Guard, Worcester Polytechnic Insti- 
tute, University of Ne^v Hampshire, 
Ithaca, Williams, Wesleyan, and 
Smith, and competed in both the 
New England and National Champi- 

All of the women's and men's boats 
took a share of the winnings. At the 
Ne-w England Championships, the 
varsity heavy\veight men placed 
third, the lightweight varsity men 
took fourth, the novice lightw^eight 
men placed second, and the junior 
varsity nien came in sixth. All three 
women's varsity boats w^on their fi- 
nal races. The women's scores jrielded 

enough points to take home the 
women's overall team point trophy. 

The top 18 schools from each divi- 
sion were invited to the Division Tw^o 
National Championships. More than 
48 schools from 18 different states 
■were represented. The varsity heavy- 
weight w^omen -won their division, 
finishing the season undefeated, and 
the lightweight varsity w^omen w^on 
their race by open water. The junior 
varsity w^omen placed fifth in their 
final. The novice lightweight men 
placed second in their division, and 
helped the team w^in the overall 
points trophy. 

This was an exciting w^ay for Coach 
Greg Siemankowski to end his first 
year as varsity head coach for both 
the men and w^omen. The novice 
w^omen's coach was Mary Lockyear

'Running away with the 


Usually, people jump on a bandwagon before 
the team hits its greatness. If you are looking to 
hop on one, forget about the University of Mas- 
sachusetts women's cross country team because 
their train just left town. 

At the A- 10 Championships in Van Cortlandt 
Park, Bronx, NY, UMass won the whole thing 
for the second year in a row, and added yet 
another win to their undefeated regular season. 
In addition, the win wrapped up coach of the 
year for UMass skipper Julie LaFreniere. 

"I'm very happy," said LaFreniere. "I have my 
team to thank for being so outstanding all year." 

Jimior Kelly Liljeblad finished first for UMass 

and second overall to Rutgers' Alicia Guiliano, 
who set an A-10 record with a 15-second margin 
over Liljeblad. On top of illness, Liljeblad 
sprained her ankle with a mile left to the course. 

'TSTew York's economic troubles have left them 
unable to put much work into the course," said 
LaFreniere. "Last weekend 8,100 people ran 
the course, making it run down and dangerous." 

Rounding out UMass' top five were Kim 
Liljeblad (5th), Becky Johnson (7th), Julie 
Moreau (11th), and Mo Meldrim (13th). 

With the UMass team losing their lead, 
Meldrim provided a burst of inspiration by 
screaming to her teammates ahead of her to 

pick up the pace. Riding on that emotion, 
Meldrim propelled herself from seventh to fifth. 

"Mo has been on penicillin for a week now and 
hadn't run for five days," said LaFreniere. "She 
and all the girls ran their hearts out." 

The women secured a place at the New En- 
gland Championships and the ECACs. 

"We are very happy to win the A-10 Champi- 
onships, it really means a lot," said LaFreniere. 
"Luckily, we do have three weeks to recover 
from all these injuries. Our main goal is to be 
one of the two teams selected to the nationals at 
the ECACs."

Harriers Finish Yet 
Another Successful 


This year's cross-country team 
finished yet another incredible sea- 
son with a record of 2-3, with major 
victories over Boston College and 
NorthEastern. Their losses aren't 
exactly losses either, they are moral 
victories! lonai and Boston Univer- 
sity were ranked within the top 15 in 
the nation which gave the minute- 
men to strive for. Their meet w^ith 
the University of Vermont was a 
spectacular event w^ith the minute- 
men losing by a narrow^ margin. 

The team -will miss it's five 
letter w^inning seniors, Brian Cox, 
Mike Davis , Pat Reed, Matt Simon, 
and Ben Winther. The team w^ill also 
miss the leadership of the veteran 
co-captains of Mike Davis and Pat 
Reed. This year's MVP aw^ard goes 
to the much deserving Matt Simon. 
These shoes w^ill be hard to fill. 

This year's team placed tenth 
in the Atlantic Ten Championships 
at the historic course in Vancortladt 
Park in New^ York City. Simon placed 
in the top five, Greenhalgh came in 
11th, Reed placed 14th, Cox placed 
15th and Copley brought up the back. 
Coach O'Brien feels that their per- 
formance is a direct reflection of their 
depth and balance. This year's per- 
formance is one to remember. 

This team also placed third in 
the New England Championships at 
Franklin Park in Boston. This same 
course also is the home for the World 
Championships for the past tw^o 
years. Simon placed ninth and 
Andleman placed right behind him 
in tenth.

Bringing it 

The University of Massachusetts Softball team 
had high aspirations entering the 1993 season. 
The Minutewomen, led by Sherri Kuchinskas 
and Coach Elaine Sortino, hoped to return to 
the NCAA tournament, where the team placed 
third nationally in 1992. 

Maybe it was the slow start in California, or 
the lousy weather back east that forced game 
cancellations and postponements by the score, 
or the Minutewomen's lack of luck of any kind 
against their archrivals from UConn, but the 
team was forced to settle for another Atlantic 10 
championship and an A-10 record of 9-1, abun- 
dant conference awards, and a final record of

ing spring break and comes home with fewer

wins than losses. It's expected. But the compe- 
tition, having seen what UMass could do in 
1992, was ready this time and left the 
Minutewomen with a 2-9 record heading back 
east. California State FuUerton and California 
State Northridge, both perennial Softball pow- 
ers out west, swept UMass in doubleheaders, as 
did the University of Nevada, Los Vegas. 

Upon their return, the Minutewomen found 
snow. The UMass invitational was scrapped 
because of the "Blizzard of '93." But UMass 
bounced back, winning eight in a row before 
losing a doubleheader to UConn, 2-0, 4-0. 

UConn and UMass are considered the soft- 
ball powers in New England. UConn's 5-0 record 
against UMass in 1993 had much to do with 
UMass missing the NCAAs this season. The 

Minutewomen never did solve the Huskie prob- 
lem, scoring only one run off the opponent in 
five losses. 

What UMass couldn't do against UConn, 
however, they did easily to the rest of the 
Atlantic 10: dominate. Only Rutgers was able 
to beat UMass, and that loss was revenged in 
the conference final with a 1-0, 10-inning win. 
St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, Temple, and 
St. Joseph's were all victims of UMass double- 
header sweeps. 

On the individual level, Sortino was once 
again named A-10 coach of the year, while 
Kuchinskas won player of the year honors. The 
senior catcher broke the UMass record for 
home runs during her four-year career.

From the beginning of September until the 
end of May, and for many cold mornings in 
between, the University of Massachusetts base- 
ball team has worked toward one goal: to make 
the Atlantic 10 Tournament in Boyertown, PA, 
win, and advance to the NCAA regionals. 

That goal fell by the wayside as the team (17- 
21) dropped the second of three games to Temple 
University, 10-6. 

With the loss, UMass missed out on the A- 10 
Tournament for the first time since 1989. The 
same weaknesses which plagued the team all 
year were in attendance Sunday: poor pitching 
and fielding. 

Although after the team came back from a 5- 

' 1 deficit with a four-run sixth inning. Temple 

scored five runs in the last three innings as the 

Minutemen committed two errors, two wild 

pitches, and a passed ball. 

"It's just frustrating, you work all season, you 

' work all fall and all off-season for just one thing, 

and that's to make it down to Boyertown," said 

starter Peter Ferrari. "Just to come one game 
short you think back, where's that one game 
that you guys could have had. 

"Early in the season you don't think they're 
important but they are. It's really frustrating to 
put all that work in it.. .and not have it pay off," 
he added. 

"It's pretty frustrating because you look for- 
ward to going to the postseason and hopefully 
get to a regional, win the A-lOs, but its kind of 
different," said first baseman Bill Knight. 

"It's difficult thinking the last game is against 
Harvard on Wednesday and you aren't trying to 
get geared up for the postseason," Knight said. 

Ferrari was knocked out of the game in the 
fourth by a two-out, three-run Temple rally. 
Gaeton Lucibello, Tom Whalen, and John 
Bujnowski drove in the runs with three hits in 
a row. John Alves came in as the first of five 
relievers for UMass. 

UMass batters saved Ferrari from a loss by 
knotting the score at five in the sixth. Steve 

Corradi led off with a double and scored on 
Justin Howard's ground out. With two out. 
Knight singled, Greg LaRocca doubled, and Jeff 
January hit a ground ball that scored the third 
UMass run. January was safe on the second 
baseman's error. 

Joe Mattivello walked, and pinch hitter Josh 
Tobin lofted a fly ball in back of second which 
the right fielder dropped, scoring LaRocca and 
January to make the game 5-5. 

Greg Dowd, who worked out of a jam in the 
top of the sixth by striking out two with the 
bases loaded, took the loss by allowing two runs 
in the top of the seventh. 

Temple scored two in the seventh, two in the 
eight, and one in the ninth. UMass scored one 
run in the ninth for the 10-6 final. 

After dropping the opening game 9-6, the 
Minutemen kept their playoff hopes alive by 
winning 11-4 in the second game behind Jeff 
Toothaker's seven innings of a 10-hit ball.

jy^^ING the Gun 

The University of Massachusetts 
■women's track and field team -went 
undefeated in their dual meets, de- 
spite experiencing a delayed start 
because of poor early weather condi- 
tions. They -went from the "loAvs" of 
the terrible -weather at the Penn 
Relays to the "highs" of hosting the 
New England Championships. The 
team also had strong showings at the 
Yale and Dartmouth Invitationals. 

Coach Julie LaFrenniere did a 
masterful job, juggling lineups and 
teaching her young team members. 
In the field events, Dianne Ozzolek 
and Natalie Hart stood out. Hart 
repeatedly broke the school discus 
and shot-put records, and is a con- 
tender for national competition. 
Ozzolek holds the school hammer 
throw record. Both w^omen competed 
in the prestigious ECAC's, along w^ith 
seven other members of the team. 

Janey Meeks and Sherry Booker 
proved to be reliable triple- and long- 
jumpers. Becky Johnson sho-wed her 
versatility by performing well in both 

the 1500m and 800m, and being a 
key factor in several relay teams. 
Kim Liljeblad was also a good middle 
distance runner and relay specialist. 
Lennice Johnson was strong in the 
400m and the 400m hurtles. Booker 
■was an excellent sprinter, running 
well in the lOOm and 200m. 

"I w^as very pleased with this team 
on the season, they've all done very 
nicely," said LaFrenniere. "We have 
trained so hard all season for the 
New^ Englands, the athletes make 
that meet our ultimate goal." 

The team has great expectations 
for next year. LaFrenniere describes 
Booker as "tremendously talented, 
she'll be very special w^hen she puts 
it all together. " Fellow^ freshmen Julie 
Moreau and Jen Melvin are middle- 
and long-distance runners who 
should only get better as their UMass 
careers roll on. The horizon looks 
bright for this multi-talented team, 
and Coach LaFrenniere will lead 
them with much success.

Pulling Ahead 

of the Pack 

The 1993 season -was an impres- 
) ive one for the University of Massa- 
Jhusetts men's track team. Mother 
J 'Jature seemed to be the team's worst 
ippponent, as rain, snow, and cold 
temperatures forced the pre-season 
iiractices to be held indoor, and 
•yashed out the team's first meet. 

When opening day finally did roll 
r round, the Minutemen found them- 
i elves facing a tough University of 
jJhode Island team as well as 
>unherst college. URI and UMass 
liattled to the wire, before the Rams 
) inally pulled out the victory, with 
1 he final scores of URI 89, UMass 84, 
;.nd Amherst 13. 

A confrontation with the Univer- 
iity of Vermont was up next for the 
Minutemen. They were up to the 
( hallenge, defeating UVM by almost 
;iO points. The victory gave UMass a 
; -1 record in head-to-head competi- 

I First on that circuit was the Holy 
(rJross Classic. The meet started w^ith 
s tw^o-day decathlon. Tw^o UMass 
team members placed in the top five. 
] 'aul Doyle took third, and Joe 
] Lourafas placed in the top five for 
1 he second straight year, earning 
1 ifth. A total of eight Minutemen 

qualified for the Ne-w England Cham- 

The success of the Minutemen con- 
tinued up north, at the Dartmouth 
Invitational. 12 more athletes quali- 
fied for the New England meet. Indi- 
vidual stars began to emerge as well. 
John Johnson took first place in the 
long jump, and second in the 100m. 
Tom Galligani remained undefeated 
in the triple jump. 

O'Brien used the Dartmouth meet 
to give athletes experience in other 
events, to try to find their strengths. 
Rick Copley, competing in his first 
ever steeplechase, took second place. 
Joe Kourafas placed second in both 
the long jump and the high jump. 

The final invitational meet of 1993 
came at Brown University. For the 
first time this season, the Minute- 
men finally got some ideal weather 

12 Minutemen reached or exceeded 
their personal bests. Lyonel Ben- 
jamin had a tremendous meet, plac- 
ing first in the 100m, second in the 
200m, and running the anchor leg of 
the second place 4xl00m relay. 

"This ^vas a real good performance 
team wise," said O'Brien. "This meet 
was a dress rehearsal for the East- 

ern Conference Championships." 

Next up was the Eastern Confer- 
ence Championships. In a field of 
tough competition, the Minutemen 
held their o-wn, placing third as a 
team overall. Pat Reed and Ted 
Towse both had career-best days for 
UMass. Reed ran an incredible final 
lap to take first in the 1500m, while 
Towse took the lead in the 10,000m 
early, and never looked back as he 
cruised to victory. 

This meet proved to be a "coming 
out party" of sorts for freshmen Marc 
Lefebvre and Rich Dupuis. Lefebvre 
threw the shot-put a foot better than 
his career-best to earn third, -while 
Dupuis out-threw his previous record 
by almost 10 feet to take third in the 

Despite the impending loss of 
graduating seniors Kourafas, Reed, 
and captain Jim Avery, the 1993 
season brought excitement to all who 
followed UMass track. Underclass- 
men Benjamin, Galligani, Towse, and 
Johnson all have one or two years 
remaining, -while freshmen Lefebvre, 
Dupuis, and Mike Masone have three 
more years to emerge as champions. 
This -will be a team to reckon with.

Karate Kid 


A woman waits, poised three inches above 
the ground. Looking up she Hfts each leg, 
one at a time, pointing her toes to the 
ceihng. She pushes herself back to touch 
her toes, then plunges forward to support 
her entire weight on her hands and toes, 
still looking at the ceiling. 

This is a ten-count push up, one of the 
many exercises that members of the Goju- 
Ryu Karate Club do to prepare themselves 
for intense training. Workouts last two 
hours, and include a generous amount of 
calisthenics, basic punches, kicks and 
throws, kata (forms), and bunkai (two per- 
son forms). The training involves more 
than physical exercise. The club members 
sharpen their minds, bodies, and spirits to 
develop concentration, discipline, and hu- 
mility, in addition to muscle control and 
coordination. The students also practice 
the ancient art of Okinawan weapons 
(Kobudc), which includes bo, sai, and tonfa. 

Giles Hopkins Sensei leads daily train- 
ing. He is a long-time student of Kimo Wall 
Sensei, who was chief instructor at UMass 
during the 1980s. Kimo Sensei has studied 
Goju-Ryu for more than forty years, and he 
has trained in Okinawa under such in- 
structors as Master Matayoshi and Master 

Kimo Sensei travels to the University 
once or twice each year. While visiting, he 
holds a Kobudo seminar and tests club 
members. In order to advance in rank, 
students must be able to demonstrate that 
they have learned their subjects to a satis- 
factory degree. 

Club members at UMass teach six gym 
classes through the Physical Education 
department: Karate I, Karate II, and Self- 
Defense for Women. The club also offers 
self-defense seminars in the residential 

The club puts on demonstrations for Reg- 
istered Student Organization fairs, the 
annual International Fair, the Asian Club, 
and the Japan American Club. The mem- 
bers also hold 24-hour karate marathons to 
raise money for charities, and offer gym 
classes through the Continuing Education

Hitting the SilJ^^ 

y^ So you say you want to learn how to fly? 
irhen does Rob Desilets have a deal for you! 
i Desilets, a junior computer systems engi- 
neering major, is the president of the Sport 
'arachute Club at UMass — the oldest 
olollegiate parachute club in the country. A 
j'leteran of 77 jumps, Desilets urges stu- 
dents to try skydiving at least once. 

"We have the cheapest skydiving rates in 
; Jew England," he said. "If you want to try 
: ;, this is where you do it: UMass. It's a part 
( f the college experience." 
i For $140 students can attend a class to 
iearn the intricacies of parachuting, and 
1 hen take a first jump. Once that jump is 
1 lade, students become automatic mem- 
1 lers of the Sport Parachute Club. The next 
) Dur jumps cost a total of $35, said Desilets. 
For the first four jumps, students do a 
I tatic line progression, in which the para- 
t hute is immediately deployed at 3,200 feet 
}} y a line hooked to the plane. Starting with 
1 he fifth jump, students go into freefall, 
1 ?hich requires manual activation of the rip 
( ord. Desilets said the last jump is from 

9,500 feet, which translates to about 45 
seconds of freefall. 

"It's very exciting when you do a freefall," 
said senior psychology major Dawn Premo. 
"It's a sense of timelessness, of confidence 
about life in general, because you feel like 
'If I can do this, I can do anything'." 

The club was founded in 1957, yet it lived 
an involuntarily covert existence until 
Desilets took over during 1992. Since then, 
the membership has grown to about 60 
students, and club members are forever 
trying to attract what they feel is overdue 
attention to the club. Events such as a jump 
into the campus pond during the Spring 
Concert and a trip to the Collegiate Nation- 
als during December help to promote the 
club's existence. 

"We're going to be jumping into the (pond 
during) Spring Concert," said Desilets. "It'll 
be between bands, at about 3 p.m., and 
eight jumpers will go from about 8,000 feet. 
We'll have smoke grenades on our ankles 
while we're under canopy, and we'll be 
holding a banner that says 'UMass'." 

It's a thrill of a lifetime for someone who 
wants to be daring and gutsy," said Chris- 
tine Wadel, a senior environmental health 
major. "But no one can really tell you what 
it's like. You have to experience it. It's the 
biggest rush. You're flying, you know?" 

Chris Klaus, a junior civil engineering 
major and the club's deputy treasurer, 
agrees and emphasizes that student nov- 
ices have nothing to fear when jumping for 
the first time. Many precautions are taken 
and the equipment used is second to none. 
"I saw a bumper sticker today that said, 
'Remember the days when sex used to be 
safe and parachuting used to be danger- 
ous?' I think that says it all," he said. "Just 
try it once. I guarantee you'll do it again." 
Desilets said jumping is an acquired skill, 
but students can still realize their dreams 
through the club. 

"When you first learn to walk, it's very 
hard," he said. "But the more you do it, the 
more you learn. And soon, you're running. 
Same principle here, except we're just learn- 
ing to fly."

SAFA visits 

Washington D.C. 

to lobby for 



SAFA annually travels to Washington D.C. to 
lobby congress, and to meet with Massachu- 
setts Congressman John Olver. The students 
gained practical experience and made strides 
in areas of financial aid.

Imagine being a college student, 
traveling to Washington DC, and lobbying 
Congress for better financial aid programs. 
Think it couldn't happen? Think again, and 
then join Students Advocating Financial 
Aid for the experience of your life! 
Thirteen years ago, Professor of Political 
Science Gerry Grady 
created SAFA as part 
of a course he was 
teaching at the Uni- 
versity of Massachu- 
setts. A group of stu- 
dents in his class 
wanted to get some 
practical lobbying ex- 
perience while at the 
same time helping 

their fellow students. 

They formed SAFA. 

SAFA is the only organization of its 
kind in the country, which makes its mis- 
sion that much more important to the fu- 
ture of affordable education in the United 

The four officers and 60 members 
are people who responded to flyers or were 
introduced to SAFA at the Registered Stu- 
dent Organization Fair. The members dis- 
cuss issues such as revision of the Financial 
Aid Form, changes in government practice, 
and new areas of focus for lobbying efforts. 
Advisors from the Financial Aid Office help 
clarify new rules and requirements. 

Members of the club learn how to 
approach senators and representatives, and 
how to professionally and effectively present 
the goals and expectations of SAFA. Al- 
though it is not a requirement, most of the 
members of SAFA are recipients of finan- 
cial aid. A major thrust of SAFA's efforts is 

to relate student needs through personal 
experience and problems. 

The annual trip to Washington, 
D.C. is financed by SAFA and by donations 
from the Student Government and the Uni- 
versity administration. Throughout the 
year, SAFA members organize activities to 
raise money. Movie show- 
ings, candy sales, andlot- 
teries all help send the 
members to Washington 
in the spring. While 
there, SAFA members 
are given a reception by 
the Washington area 
UMass Alumni Associa- 

Congress was reviewing 
President Clinton's eco- 
nomic stimulus package 
when SAFA went to Washington in 1993. 
This program will have a major impact on 
financial aid recipients all over the country. 
It proved to be a productive and highly 
beneficial trip for the group. Members were 
able to approach lawmakers while the issue 
was at the forefront of debate. 

Aside from being an important and 
highly recognized organization, SAFA 
also a great resume builder. To have .o- 
bied Congress when in college is a s* King 
achievement. Many former members are 
currently working on Capitol Hill for people 
they met while on a SAFA trip. 

"SAFA gives the everyday college 
student a chance to affect higher educa- 
tion," said SAFA President Anne Marie 
Cervini. To fight for America's youth is 
among the noblest of gestures. It's your 
chance to impact the political process.

Mortar Board: 

A winning combination of scholarship and service 

1993 marks the 75th anniversary of the 
Mortar Board, a national senior honor soci- 
ety of "scholars. ..chosen for 
leadership. ..united to serve." The Mortar 
Board has grown from a small, all-women's 
honor society to a nationally recognized, co- 
educational program that chooses academi- 
cally talented students to promote campus 
lanr' immunity service activities. 

/hile the group strives to serve locally, 
-lembers also hope to have a national im- 

"I would like this to be a successful year 
for Mortar Board not just at UMass, but for 
us to be known as an outstanding chapter 
everywhere," said Mary Lynn Lim, a senior 
biochemistry major. 

Although Mortar Board promotes any 
service-oriented activity, the national ser- 
vice theme for this particular year is lit- 
eracy. The UMass group participated in 
events such as a fundraiser for The Lit- 
eracy Project of Greenfield, a trip to a 
Holyoke elementary school to read to stu- 

dents, and a Walk-A-Thon for Literacy in 

In celebration of the organization's 75th 
anniversary, the UMass Isogon Chapter 
took part in a variety of activities during 
National Mortar Board Week (February 
15- 19), including Professor Recognition Day 
and hosting an alumni guest speaker. 

During the fall semester. Mortar Board, 
Golden Key National Honor Society, and 
Alpha Lambda Delta worked together to 
organize the Kathie Caldwell Walk-A-Thon. 
Caldwell, a freshman at UMass during 1992, 
suffered a stroke that left her quadriplegic 
and unable to speak. 

The Caldwell family notified Dean of Stu- 
dents Eileen Stewart about the financial 
strain that medical expenses and special 
equipment had placed on them. Stewart 
informed the three honor societies about 
the Caldwell's situation, and immediately 
steps were taken to arrange a fundraiser 
for the family. 

Hundreds of students turned out on Sat- 
urday, November 21 for the three- mile 
walk, and more than $ 1,000 was pledged by 
individuals and local businesses even be- 
fore the walk started. The Walk-A-Thon 
was successful because of the organization 
and determination of Mortar Board, Golden 
Key, and ALD members. 

The UMass Mortar Board continues to 
strive for local and national excellence. 
While relishing the successes of yesterday 
and planning for the activities of tomorrow, 
Mortar Board remains focused on the daily 
needs of the campus and community.

For $5,000 and the vegomatic, the ques- 
tion for today is: "What is UPC?" Ummm, 
that bar code thing that gets scanned in the 
checkout hne at Super Stop & Shop? Nope. 

But this is often the response of people 
who don't know what University Produc- 
tions and Concerts (formerly the Union 
Program Council) does on the UMass cam- 
pus. The old name didn't exactly spell it out, 

In the past, UPC has been known mainly 
for the fact that it puts on the Spring Con- 
cert. This is very true, and it doesn't hurt to 
mention that the Grateful Dead played one 
in the football stadium for one of the two 
shows that were staged there before UPC 
was outlawed from that venue. There was a 
bit of a mess to be cleaned up, and a few 
legal technicalities. ..but such is the way 
with rock 'n roll. 

The best way to picture what UPC has 
done in the past is to simply mention a few 
of the other bands that it has brought to 
campus during the 16 years that it has 

In the past, bands such as U2 (in Bowker 
Auditorium, believe it or not) and the Red

Concert going crowd.

Hot Chili Peppers (one of the few bands 
that the administration has banned from 
campus for. . .ahem. . .unsavory conduct), just 
before they broke into the big time. UPC 
has also brought Van Morrison, Bonnie 
Raitt, the Talking Heads, James Taylor, 
Frank Zappa, and Run-DMC to the UMass 

More recently, up-and-coming artists such 
as Jesus Jones and (gasp) a Seattle band 
called Pearl Jam have played at UMass 
right before their big breaks. The 1993 
Concert showcased Richie Havens and the 

And yet, UPC remains a fairly well-kept 
secret. People go to the shows, but do they 
know who puts them on? We do! 

UPC is one of the largest college concert 
production organizations. What sets us 
apart from most others is the fact that the 
students handle all aspects of the show 
from beginning to end. We book our own 
talent, do our own promotions and adver- 
tising, not to mention security, stage crew, 
and hospitality. 

So, where do a bunch of students get the 
money for all this? Well, it comes from the 

Student Activities Trust Fund, originating 
from student fees. We are allotted a certain 
amount per semester, and a separate 
amount for the Spring Concert. The amounts 
fluctuate on a year-to-year basis. When we 
do a show, we spend a certain amount of 
money and set ticket prices according to 
what will let us break even — we're not in 
it for profit. 

UPC was formed to provide a service, as 
well as to give students experience in the 
various aspects of production, on a volun- 
teer basis. Most importantly, UPC is around 
so people can have a good time. 

I've been working UPC shows for the past 
four years. For me, it was a dream come 
true. I never thought there was a way I 
could make music a career, and work with 
cutting edge bands. 

Some shows are spectacular, while 
others. ..aren't. But, again, such is the de- 
cidedly unpredictable world of rock 'n roll. 
Every year brings a new cast of characters 
to the UPC family, but the spirit remains 
the same.

UMass' Bike Co-op keeps students on the go

With the growing population of bikes on 
campus and the inevitable need for an occa- 
sional repair, the Bicycle Co-op is there for 
all your biking needs. 

The premise of the place is simple. Stu- 
dents can bring their bikes into the shop, 
and using the array of tools hanging on the 
wall, go to work to fix whatever problems 
they might have. 

The staff members provide helpful advice 
as to what the problem might be, and decide 
whether the part is worth repairing or re- 
placing altogether. Senior environmental 
science major Matt Germino said the co-op 
charges $3 per hour for students to use the 
shop. The shop also sells replacement parts 
such as tubes, tires, and chains at a reason- 
able rate, and can order a variety of special- 
ized parts. 

"Historically, the Bike Co-op has been a 
loosely-run business plagued by inconsis- 
tent open hours, inadequate tool supply, 
and lack of publicity," said Germino. 

Graduate student Peter Diplock of the 
Center of Student Businesses initiated 
changes in inventory, payroll, and the busi- 
ness organization, and the Bike Co-op has 
since flourished. 

So the next time you've got a problem 
with your bike, it doesn't mean you'll have 
to walk to class. Just head on over to the 
Bike Co-op, and you'll be riding again in no 
time "flat."

' nth a "family that cares and watches out 
1 tr each other, a fraternal support network 
I f friends and advisors," only the 130 mem- 
1 er Minuteman Army ROTC battalion can 
I t her description. 

\ When Albrycht's roommate Michelle 
Uonnachie describes the camaraderie of 
l.'ISII (sophomore) study sessions and how 
iihe wants to "go active" when she gradu- 
i(tes, she symbolizes the "Leadership Ex-

Kiore business major in the Ranger Pla- 
toon, Donnachie said she wants to be a 
iiember of the Military Intelligence. 
I* Among the Rangers, there is a team often 
lembers who take part in the annual 13- 
i ;hool Ranger Challenge Competition, with 
;Dntests in rifle marksmanship, 
jdenteering, rope bridge crossing, and a 
Jiin kilometer forced march (while carrying 
«' 3 pounds of gear). 

"(We) voluntarily do more physical and 

classroom training to make ourselves profi- 
cient and efficient because we enjoy it," said 
Daren Krellwitz, a member of the Rangers 
and Captain of the Color Guards.

ers, the Color Guard, and the Scabbard & 
Blade Honor Society are just some of the 
organizations within the superstructure of 

Students who earn ROTC scholarships 
get more than a grant that covers tuition 
and student fees, $225 per semester for 
books, and a monthly $100 stipend. The 
ROTC program includes exercise both physi- 
cal and mental: three days of intense physi- 
cal training, and required courses and labs 
introduce cadets into the army, teaching 
them skills ranging from leadership to mili- 
tary law. 

ROTC also means a commitment to the 
national military that includes eight years 
of ser-vice for students receiving grants and 
four years of service for those not on schol- 

During the summer between junior- and 
senior-year, all cadets attend a training 
camp to get hands-on experience and choose 
a branch of the military that they want to 
pursue as a career. Popular choices are 
infantry for men, military police for women. 

Students graduate as Second Lieuten- 
ants and attend officer's basic training. 
After that they can go on to graduate school 
and earn First Lieutenant ranking, or go 
right into active service. 

Rappelling, camping, field training exer- 
cises at Fort Devens, shooting M-16s and 
M-20s, saluting, and marching are just some 
of the dimensions Army ROTC adds to 
sophomore environmental science major 
Trina Cysz's daily college experience. 

"ROTC provides a direction, a goal, a 
focus, and a maturity that extends beyond 
the college experience," she said.

1992-93 was an exciting year for the Uni- 
versity Democrats. As well as helping to 
elect the first Democratic president in 12 
years, the club chose Neil Carpenter as the 
new president of the College Democrats of 
Massachusetts. The University Democrats 
were led by George Fitzgerald, and it was 
under his direction that the group received 
an increased budget for the following year 
and traveled to the inaugural ceremonies in 
Washington DC. The highlight of the year 
was a debate against the Republican Club, 
focusing on the merits of the presidential 
hopefuls. Here's what happened. 

In a presidential debate, Neil Carpenter, 
speaking onbehalf of Democratic challeng- 
ers Bill Clinton and Al Gore, attacked the 
Republican administration under Reagan, 
Bush, and Quayle for driving America into 
the worst job market in 50 years, due to the 
failed "trickle down" policies of the conser- 
vative administration. 

Voting for the Clinton/Gore ticket. Car- 
penter argued, was a vote for a better 
economy, education, and environment, 
along with the right to an abortion. Bush, 
according to Carpenter, has for too long 
catered to the wealthy and powerful, and 
now was the time to break from the status 
quo and run the country from the bottom 
up, not from the top down. 

Carpenter said that under a Clinton ad- 
ministration, the only taxes raised would 
be on the wealthy portion of the population 
in order to finance better education and a 
national health plan. 

When the issue of race relations was 
discussed, Carpenter applauded the record 
of Clinton. As governor of Arkansas, Clinton 
was voted most successful governor in 1991 
because of his urban policies. 

The issue then shifted to foreign policy 
after the Cold War era. Carpenter said that 
by electing Clinton, our nation would be- 
come an economic leader rather than a 
military-oriented nation. He said the $60 
billion in defense cuts proposed by Clinton 
made sense, and is backed by such military 
brass as Admiral William Crowe. 

Carpenter went on to mention that with 
Gore as vice president, the environment 
woulr" be on the front burner, unlike the 
Bush plan, which in^rolves oil companies 
and businesses responsible for pollution. 

Bill Clinton later became president-elect 
of the United States by winning 43 percent 
of the popular vote, over Bush's 38 percent.

Students who join the UMass Republi- 
cans have a certain flair for right wing 
politics that earns them the experience, con- 
nections, and recognition to succeed in the 
world, and often in Washington, DC itself. 
Together with the Minuteman, the conser- 
vative campus newspaper, the group offers 
political internships and regular contact 
with prominent Republicans across the coun- 

I try. Here's their side of the debate. 

President George Bush is the only viable 

I candidate for the 1992 Presidency of the 

' United States, said the former President of 

I the UMass Republican Club and student 
senator, senior Kevin Jourdain. During his 
debate with the University Democrat Club 

I President Neil Carpenter, Jourdain com- 

I bined his knowledge of the facts concerning 
both candidates with his experience in pub- 
lic speaking to assert that Americans de- 
serve and need four more years of President 

I Bush. Jourdain detailed the President's 
achievements at home and abroad. He said 
Bush represents the party of Lincoln, the 
party of freedom, as exemplified by the 
nomination and acceptance of Clarence 

1 Thomas to the Supreme Court. Bush also 
signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1990 
to protect against emplo3rment discrimina- 
tion in a manner that neither involves red- 
tape legislation nor reverse discrimination 

H quotas. 

Speaking of the President's experience, 

•I Jourdain said that during the Cold War 
Bush was the youngest Navy pilot to fly the 
Pacific. He has also been the Director of the 
Central Intelligence Agency, and as Presi- 
dent of the United States he has "seen it all, 
1 done it all." Bush was crucial to the fall of 

1 Communism and the re-unification of Ger- 

ri many. 

Bush, Jourdain said, has a realistic health 
care program which ends many regulations 
to small businesses and drastically reduces 
I malpractice- suit cases, making health care 
1 more affordable for everybody. 

Concerning the environment, Jourdain 
said that in 1988 not an inch of the environ- 
ment was lost. An ardent sportsman. Bush 
is committed to preserving our waters and 

i lands. 

Jourdain emphasized the fact that the 
Republican party is the inclusive party for 
Americans and that Bush is a strong propo- 
nent of private enterprise.

We went to Washington in order to pro- 
test the ban against homosexuals in the 
armed forces. We spoke out against hate 
crimes. We demanded our civil rights. We 
fought for our lives. 

The March on Washington for Gay, Les- 
bian, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights, 
which was held on April 25, 1993, attracted 
more than 1,000,000 participants. Among 
these were 300 students from the Five Col- 
lege Area. 

Activities included a morning rally and 
gathering on the Mall, an organized and 
peaceful march to the White House, and an 
afternoon rally. 

Massachusetts State Representative 
Gary Studds energized the crowd with his 
talk about the fight against the Pentagon 
and the military ban. Jessie Jackson spoke, 
declaring the day had come when all people 
should be regarded as equal. Talk show 
host Phil Donahue was present, and enter- 
tainers such as the Indigo Girls, Melissa 
Etheridge, and RuPAUL sang and offered 
their support.

Earthfoods cooks up healthy choices for students and friends 

Earthfoods is a non-profit, student-initi- 
ated, and student-managed business based 
in the Student Union. The members of 
Earthfoods work together through consen- 
sus vote to provide vegetarian food at an 
inexpensive price to the UMass commu- 
nity, as efficiently as possible. 

"There's a really close-knit, friendly at- 
mosphere. They give you huge portions and 
it's pretty cheap," said Megan Foley, a se- 
nior psychology major. 

The GreereZea/' organization was founded 
in 1976 by a group of students who were 
concerned about the lack of economical, 
healthy food on campus. Since then, the 
cafe has developed into one of the fastest 
growing student businesses at the Univer- 
sity. Now we feed up to 500 people daily in 
the Commonwealth Room and have 27 ex- 
tremely active members. 

When you're in the area come on by, let us 
serve you, and see what all the fun is about.

Flying High 

The Cannabis Reform Coalition just isn't 
your ordinary club. It was founded to pro- 
mote events of a counter-culture nature, to 
raise consciousness of society toward the 
issue of legalizing cannabis, to dispel com- 
1 mon misconceptions about the plant, and to 
1 emphasize the usefulness of cannabis in 
i industry, medicine, and culture. 

"The club was founded over two years ago 

■ to try to form a sense of community among 
cannabis users on campus, (by) sponsoring 

I political activity, policy reforms, and pro- 
moting drug awareness and drug educa- 
tion," said club secretary and founding 
member Brian Julin, a senior computer 
systems engineer. 

CRC distributes information and litera- 
ture from its library of activist material, 
corresponds with other organizations, and 

1 provides legal support for its 200 members. 
"I started getting involved last semester 

■ and learned a lot about the club. Once you 
get involved you can't stop thinking about 
legalization because there is so much infor- 
mation involved," said club President Lance 
Brown, a junior English major. 

"For example, American people are miss- 
ing out on a huge opportunity for beneficial 
agricultural reform. We possess the tech- 
nology to develop massively improved envi- 
Tonmental efficiency of agriculture. We 
■could free ourselves of fossil fuel depen- 
dency. Also, you can create paper with hemp 

rather than trees. We have the answers to 
environmental questions. 

"However," he added, "initially a few com- 
panies began the 'reefer madness' phobia 
and have since been systematically sup- 
pressing cannabis because it is dangerous 
to their enterprises. These corporations have 
nursed society's ignorance and have in- 
grained in our culture a fear of cannabis. 
The combination of society's blind obedi- 
ence and the personal profiteering of cer- 
tain corporations must be stopped." 

The club promoted awareness of these 
issues with "Extravaganja," complete with 
live bands, dancing, and hemp distributors. 
The Coalition also obtained enough stu- 
dent signatures to get a referendum ques- 
tion placed on this year's UMass voting 

The question, which asked students if 
they favored the legalization of hemp on 
campus, was overwhelmingly answered 
YES. More than 2,000 votes favored legal- 
ization, while 900 votes were cast against 

"This is the beginning. Legalization isn't 
going to happen by itself, but (it will hap- 
pen) when people get involved in the cause 
and promote understanding and knowl- 
edge of the issue," said Brown. "Awareness 
is growing and people are just starting to 
voice their desire for legalized hemp."

Governing Ourselves 

The Student Government Association is made 
up of undergraduate student representatives, 
called "senators," from all areas of the campus, 
including the Greek Area, and commuter stu- 
dents. The senators meet weekly in order to 
Hsten to officer and committee reports, as well 
as to review "motions" before the senate body. 
Motions are presented by senators to initiate 
work on issues of interest to the various campus 

SGA consists of four officers, including presi- 
dent, student trustee (both of whom are elected 
by the student body), treasurer, and speaker 
(appointed from within the senate body). Stu- 
dents work on special committees such as those 
on budget, finance, public policy (work in con- 
junction with the Registrar's Office in order to 
register students to vote), governmental affairs 
(such as elections), public relations (re-estab- 
lished this year to increase communications 
between the SGA and the student body through 
the newsletter The Agenda). 

The main focus for SGA is the long-term 
welfare of the students. The development of a 
constitution is perhaps the most important part 
of this plan. The constitution empowers the 
student body, by giving it formal power at the 
Board of Trustees level. 

Negotiations to change the responsibilities of 
the Student Activities Office have also been an 
important activity for SGA. We were able to 
reach a compromise on splitting the Student 
Activities Trust Fund (SATF), in order to give 
SGA greater control over student funds. 

A third project for SGA is the renewed effort 
to restore litigation rights to the Legal Services 
Center. This would re-establish the ability of 
students to review and challenge the role of the 
University in all of its faculties. 

The proposed return of the Student Center 
for Educational Research and Advocacy 
(SCERA) is another matter for SGA consider- 
ation. SGA plans to hire a professional to act as 
director of the program. The center will be a 
resource for students, as well as the Student 
Government Association itself. 

Students who are involved with SGA work 
hard to build an effective structure for future 
government representatives, as well as the stu- 
dent body.

The Commuter Area Government and 
Commuter Governing Board are the voices 
of off-campus students to the University 
and the surrounding community. We serve 
in many capacities to aid in the varied and 
important needs of all students, focusing on 
advocacy and programming. 

Our advocacy role, headed by President 
Tony Ong, is involved in bringing fairness to 
students as residents of Amherst and other 
valley communities. Ong sits on the Amherst 
town boards to represent student rights and 
lobby for increased awareness of student 
needs. Commuters also works closely with 
the Off-Campus Housing Office, the official 
"resource center" for all valley residents. 
OCHO provides many important functions 
in addition to a listing of available local 

The Commuter Series, a continuing effort 
by Commuters to bring top quality enter- 
tainment, distinguished speakers, and in- 
teractive discussions to campus, is headed 
by Vice President Michael Harris. This year 
the Commuter Series featured a screening 
of Dammed in the USA, Spring Comedy 
Night featuring Jeff Altman, and a speech 
by consumer advocate Ralph Nader. We 
were also very excited to bring Hollywood to 
campus by hosting a live television taping of 
Suzi Landolphi's Hot, Sexy, and Safer for 
national broadcast in the fall.

Editor in Chief David Rivera (Spring, 1993) 
fondly called the Massachusetts Daily Colle- 
gian the "Daily Miracle." That label was never 
more appropriate than during the 1992-1993 
school year. 

The Collegian's 200-student staff arrived on 
campus in September, not knowing if the news- 
paper even existed. A takeover (during the 
previous May) of the paper's offices by activists 
who claimed the Collegian was racist left the 
future of the 103-year-old newspaper in jeop- 

Summer talks through the Harvard Negotia- 
tion Project led to an easing of tensions, and the 
Collegian was able to celebrate its' 25th anni- 
versary as a daily newspaper. By spring, staff 
numbers were increasing and the future seemed 

The Collegian returned with a new look. The 
graphics department, aided by a Macintosh 
computer system, launched a major overhaul 
that resulted in a streamlined newspaper. Mean- 
while, the business staff continued to hold its 
own against professional competition, despite a

depressed ad market. 

Those were the "big" miracles of 1992-93. The 
"daily miracle" Rivera spoke of is equally im- 
pressive. It starts each morning when Maureen 
Majerowski, one of the Collegian's four profes- 
sional business employees and the longest-ten- 
ured member, arrives and makes a batch of the 
office's famous coffee. 

Soon after, advertising representatives, writ- 
ers, and day graphics staff members wander in 
to begin selling and placing the ads that pay to 
keep the free, 19,000-circulation paper running 
smoothly. The largest college daily in New En- 
gland is entirely self-funded. 

By early afternoon, the business and produc- 
tion departments, and newsroom are humming 
with activity. News Editor Jason George, 20 
ounce coffee and smoldering cigarette in hand, 
makes calls to writers and sources in order to 
get on-campus stories for the news section. He 
has plenty to present to Managing Editor 
Michelle Bayliss, the production supervisor, 
and the photo technician when the call for 
"budget" goes out at 5pm. 

Meanwhile, reporters make calls and type 
stories into the ancient newsroom computer 
system, while Editorial Editor Darienne Hosley 
finishes the Ed/Op page layout for the day. 

Late in the afternoon, other page editors 
make the trek down to the basement to lay out 
their sections and harass writers. Sports Editor 
Michael Morrissey talks with fellow "sportos," 
or with Arts Editors Lisa Curtis and Jon Lupo, 
and Black Affairs Editor Kristin St. John. 

But amidst all of this manic activity, some 
lucky staffers have nothing to do and no dead- 
line to meet. They hang out, discuss world 
events, or stop in between classes for a cup of 
coffee. Some will stay until nightfall, when the 
graphics and news night staffs come in to put 
the paper together for a 2 a.m. deadline. 

It's this kind of dedication that makes daily 
miracles of all kinds possible at the Collegian. 
To the staff, it's more than a paper -it's a family, 
sometimes enjoying one another's company, 
sometimes agreeing to disagree, but always a

For Greenough Snack Bar, the 
1992-1993 academic year was like no other. 
The non-profit, student-run business joined 
the ranks of UMass residential student 
organizations such as Earthfoods and 
People's Market by becoming a cooperative. 

The 22 student employees also be- 
gan a delivery service to bring meals to the 
Central area residence halls, catered social 
gatherings on campus, held a free coffee- 
house with live, local entertainment, and 
served food to the thousands of people who 
attended the Spring Concert. 

Our goal was to provide good food 
at a low price to fellow students. With the 
help of Registered Student Organization 
adviser Katya D'Arnico, the Greenough 
Snack Bar was able to grow from a finan- 
cially troubled, six-person club to an ener- 
getic, cooperative gi-oup where all employ- 
ees work as equals in the decision making 

Throughout the years, the snack 
bar has sold everything from subs and pocket 
sandwiches to ice cream sundaes and fresh 
baked cookies and brownies. Greenough is 
known for its fun atmosphere and personal

aces the Music 

The University Chorale, a choir of more 
than 50 singers dedicated to fun and music, 
has once again completed a successful year. 
Chorale is comprised of students from many 
majors, from math to history, from engi- 
neering to hotel restaurant and travel ad- 
ministration. What they have in common is 
a love of song. 

The group presents many styles of music, 
from Italian Renaissance to American gos- 
pel. Chorale has also put on several special 
works during the past year, including a 
stage version of Gian Carlo Menotti's A?na/iZ 
and the Night Visitors, and the Berlioz 

The Requiem performance was one of the 
largest choral shows in University history, 
including the works of five choirs from the 
Valley area and the Pioneer Valley Sym- 
phony. Other concerts included an exhibi- 
tion at Old South Congregational in Spring- 
field, and an appearance at the Five College 
Choral Festival, held at John M. Greene 
Hall at Smith College. 

What makes Chorale different from other 
choirs? TRAVEL! Several of the graduating 
seniors have been on two major tours with

Chorale. In 1990, the group toured to Po- 
land and what was then the Soviet Union. 
The director, Dr. Richard Dubois ("D" as 
the Chorale affectionately calls him), tells 
of the difference between the first time the 
Chorale went to the Soviet Union in 1980 
and the trip in 1990. 

"In 1980, we were not allowed to sing 
about God, freedom or peace. We were not 
allowed to speak to anyone. We were given 
tours of the cities that we visited and were 
not allowed to ask questions. In 1990, things 
were much different. We spoke to the people. 
We learned what it was like to be a Soviet 
citizen. We performed a piece by Dr. Horace 
Boyer called Save Me. When we sang this 
piece at the Cathedral of the Black Ma- 
donna in Warsaw, Poland, the crowd was so 
moved, they applauded for 30 minutes and 
asked us to perform it again, even as we 
were boarding the buses to leave the Cathe- 
dral. The audience wanted so desperately 
to hear us again." 

In 1992, Chorale traveled once again to a 
far corner of the Earth, this time to Austra- 
lia and New Zealand. Performances in 
Sydney and Cairns, AUS, and in Auckland, 

Rotorua, and Whangarei, NZ were all well 

"We got to go to a part of the world that 
many of us would never have seen other- 
wise. Discovering the Maori people of New 
Zealand, learning about an entirely foreign 
culture, visitingtheir marais (tribal lodges), 
and then performing for them was the most 
amazing experience of my life," said HRTA 
senior Jim Olson. 

This spring, the Chorale has been under 
the leadership of Hua-En Lu, a graduate 
student in the music department, while Dr. 
Dubois was on sabbatical. Her energy and 
dedication is greatly appreciated by the 

Along with the hard work of preparing for 
concerts and tours, Chorale also has time 
for fun. The annual Chorale Banquet at the 
Lord Jeffery Inn is a rousing success. Hay- 
rides in the fall, fundraising, and parties at 
the Chorale managers' apartment round 
out the social activities. 

Chorale has a long history of excellence in 
music, tours and concerts yet to be sung, 
and friendships to be made.

"Greek Night," on Greek Independence 

! Day, is an example of the effort and sophis- 
tication that the Five Colleges European 

' Club puts into events that it coordinates. 
Initiated by club President Dimos 
Silvestriadis, and organized by the Worces- 
ter Dining Commons, the night found 10,000 

« students eating traditional Greek food such 
as spanikopita (spinach pita) and baklava 
for dessert. Greek dancers performed, and 

-students joined in the festivities. 

Theodore Passas, Consul of Greece and 

iformer representative of Greece to the 

' United Nations, spoke after the dinner on 
the "Crisis in Yugoslavia: the Greek Per- 
spective." The lecture drew a crowd of more 
than 150 people. 

"This European Club is great!" said School 
of Management sophomore Mark La wry, 
who attended the lecture by Passas. "I 
thought it was going to be long and boring, 
but there are tons of people here, and every- 

iione is arguing and debating about Yugosla- 
via. I can't believe how many other UMass 
students are really excited about these is- 
Students who join the club are primarily 

mstudents of the social sciences, although a 

large segment is composed of students with 
various European heritages. 

"Members of the European Club are stu- 
dents with the desire to keep up with events 
that go on in Europe," said Silvestriadis. A 
senior economics management major, he 
founded the club in January of 1991 be- 
cause "all University students should know 
what's going on in Europe. It's an emerging 

Lectures, panel discussions, debates, 
dances, and trips all comprise the Euro- 
pean Club's schedule of events. With more 
than four hundred members from the Five 
College area, each activity draws at least a 
crowd of a hundred people. 

Talks by guest speakers included "The 
Automobile Industry Under Global Compe- 
tition Conditions," by Giuseppe Greco, presi- 
dent and C.E.O. of Ferrari North America, 
Inc., and "What Exactly Collapsed in the 
U.S.S.R.," by Economics Professor Richard 

"There are European Clubs at all five 
colleges. UMass is the main vein and the 
heart," said Kristel Bohm, the vice presi- 
dent of academic and corporate relations, a 
senior economics major. Located in 110 

Thompson Hall, the European Club boasts 
a wealth of resources and information. 

As a "European Database Center," the 
club has its own telecommunications elec- 
tronic mail address and maintains several 
computers in addition to a fax machine. The 
office holds European and internationally 
focused newspapers and journals, pam- 
phlets in various European languages, and 
tourist information. 

"We also print the European Club News 
Letter, which we mail at no charge to all 
interested students. There are about 400 
students on the mailing list. This keeps 
everyone informed of upcoming events and 
includes articles of European news as well," 
said Nicole Prunier, the vice president of 
finance and a senior economics major. 

"All of our events have been successful. 
We advertise everything we do at all five 
colleges and coordinate well. From provid- 
ing receptions for lectures to providing en- 
tertainment at dances, we make sure things 
are done the right way. The European Club 
is enjoyable, entertaining, informative, and 
fun. Everyone should join," said Bohm.

Banding Together 

A combination of real dedication, orga- 
nized talent, and raw enthusiasm is an 
accurate description of the UMass March- 
ing Band. Whether at home, in New Jersey, 
or even the nation's Capital, the band puts 
on a professional show. 

Getting more than 250 students to per- 
form so well together only happens with 
practice and effort. During the year, band 
members meet Monday through Friday, 
from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. for practice. 

Even before the fall semester begins, 
members attend a week-long camp during 
the summer. All day every day, they learn 
the musical scores that dazzle their audi- 
ences during the year. The band is such a 
time-consuming activity that it is available 
as a two-credit course. 

"We've played popular soundtracks like 
Batman and Hook, and classics including 
Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera," 
said trombone player Denis DerSarkesian, 
a neuroscience/psychology sophomore. 

In addition to its musicians, the band is 
made up of twirlers, a color guard, and 
drum majors. 

One of the largest organized and active 
student groups on campus, the marching 
band does much more than UMass football 
game halftime shows. They have also per- 
formed at Giants Stadium and the Univer- 

sity of Delaware. The band puts on an 
annual Christmas performance in Amherst, 
marches in numerous parades, and plays at 
several local high school events. 

Much of the stabilizing force behind the 
success of the band comes from band Direc- 
tor and Professor, George Parks, who has 
headed the band for more than 15 years. 
Despite its large size, Parks wants to in- 
crease the size of the band during the forth- 
coming years. But becoming a member of 
the band is still competitive. 

Students who make the cut soon realize 
how serious members are about the march- 
ing band. There are even a fraternity and 
sorority exclusively for band members. 
Alumni of the band are commonly found on 
the field helping out with organization and 
making sure equipment is ready to go. 

The UMass marching band is a matter of 
pride to its members. 

"First you need a lot of UMass students 
who can play well," said DerSarkisian. 
"Then they have to be willing to devote a lot 
of their time and energy to the band. Then 
you need a leader to organize this huge 
group of students who are also musicians. 
It's amazing how well we pull it all off. 
We're called the "Power and Class" of New 
England because it is true."

Where else on campus can you spend a 
night with friends, food, and toads that 
vomit up their young? At the Wildhfe Soci- 
ety, of course, where club members enter- 
tain and inform undergraduates, gradu- 
ates, and faculty with numerous speakers 
and activities. 

The Wildlife Society, founded in 1937, is 
an "international, non-profit scientific and 
educational organization serving and rep- 
resenting wildlife professionals in all areas 
of wildlife conservation and resource man- 
agement." Chapters on college and univer- 
sity campuses nationwide offer students a 
chance to participate in this character-build- 
ing association. 

The UMass chapter is a source of infor- 
mation for students interested in the natu- 
ral resources. Current news on available 
jobs and volunteer opportunities have linked 
students with summer activities that range 
from studying gypsy moths in Cape Cod to 
wildlife rehabilitation in Washington. 

The chapter is also a resource for the 
professional community in need of student 
assistance. Student members roam the for- 
ests of the Quabbin at dawn doing deer 

transcect surveys, assist graduate students 
in radio telemetry of porcupines, and wade 
up to their waists in fisheries doing popula- 
tion studies. They learn valuable skills as 
well as gain experience in their fields. 

Five elected officers orchestrate the 
monthly meetings as well as annual activi- 
ties. Activities include fundraising for the 
Miami Zoo, which was devastated by Hur- 
ricane Andrew during August; hosting the 
annual Wildhfe Society/Society of Ameri- 
can Foresters picnic; creating a summer job 
transportation scholarship; and participa- 
tion in the annual New England Student 

The members of the Wildlife Society are 
exceptional people. They share the common 
(and sometimes warped) interest in wild- 
life and the outdoors. 

"Our last meeting we wolfed down pizza 
and cheered as we watched David 
Attenborough's Trials of Life: Hunting and

Don't touch that 

WMUA 91.1 FM had yet another success- 
ful year broadcasting from the basement of 
the Campus Center. We won our third con- 
secutive Valley Advocate Reader's Poll as 
the Best College Radio Station in the Val- 
ley. Much credit is due to our executive 
committee: Matt Williams, programmer; 
Emily Stewart, chairperson; and Jack 
Wright, manager. They kept us solvent, 
organized, and sounding great. 

We also completed our first year as a 
Radio Pacifica News Affiliate. Radio Pacifica 
provides our listeners with an alternative 
news program that digs behind the head- 
lines to provide perspectives largely miiss- 
ing from the American debate. The feed- 
back thus far has been positive. 

Our own news department continued to 
grow and improve. News Director Denise 
Drago produced a professional 30-minute 
weekday news program, that covered cam- 
pus events as well as national news. 

Sports Directors Brett Morris and Brian 
Jones saw to it that the campus community 
had live access to all UMass football, men's 
basketball, and lacrosse games. Our state- 
of-the-art equipment and well-trained 
broadcasters made for crisp coverage. 

Thanks to the efforts of our Telethon 
Director, Roubina Surenian, we grossed 
more than $17,000 during our one-week of 
on-air fundraising. These funds are used 
for general operating expenses and supple- 
ment the money awarded to us by the Stu- 
dent Government Association. 

WMUA's steady diet of diverse sounds, 
ranging from rap, rock, and blues, to folk, 
jazz, and bluegrass, are the result of the 
hard work and expertise of more than 100 
volunteers. Thanks to all.

Hillel: A History of 
Tradition and Faith 

Because many of Hillel's active members 
this year are either seniors or freshmen, it 
may best be described as a transition year 
for the club. The freshmen took on leader- 
ship roles and executed them well. Overall, 
it was a successful year and the members 
are excited about future events. 

The most widely attended program was 
the rally against the talk by Leonard 
Jeffries, a professor who was legally charged 
with anti-Semitism. Some other highlights 
of the year were the resolution passed by 
the Undergraduate Student Senate to can- 
cel classes on Yom Kippur; the Multicultural 
Seder; the Holocaust Memorial Week; the 
lecture by Joseph Telushkin; and the Is- 
raeli Independence Day celebration. 

Hillel co-sponsored activities with other 
organizations such as the lecture by Paul 
Parks, where the Black Mass Communica- 
tions Project, Office of Third World Affairs, 
and Hillel worked together to make the 
program possible. Hillel also received a 
budget from the Student Government As- 
sociation for the first time in 70 years. 

UMass Hillel has an eye toward the fu- 
ture and is focused on achieving excellent 
programming for next year. Already being 
planned is a show by comedian Jerry 
Seinfeld and a lecture by Dr. Ruth 
Westheimer. Hillel will gear more of its 
activities toward the social and ethnic/cul- 
tural areas in the future.

Members of UMass HANDS gather each 
week in a room that is silent, but visually 
alive. Five College students, University 
employees, adults from the local commu- 
nity — some are Deaf and some are hear- 
ing. But they all sign. 

In its second year as a registered student 
organization HANDS has nearly tripled its 
membership, growing to more than seventy 
men and women. What was once a handful 
of people who gathered to learn sign has 
become a structured club with officers, 
members, and paid American Sign Lan- 
guage (ASL) instructors. 

"I started coming because I wanted to 
learn about the language. But, now after a 
couple of years, I have to say that I've gotten 
just as much from the great people I've met 
here (both Deaf and hearing)," said Alison 
E. Roberts, a sophomore BDIC major. 

The ASL classes are taught by Deaf adults 
and interpreters with teaching experience. 
Taken from the Signing Naturally text, 
materials follow the VISTA method of teach- 
ing ASL. At each level, instruction is deliv- 
ered in sign without voice. In addition to 
lesson plans that the individual teachers 
develop, students watch an accompanjdng 
video tape in order to practice reading signs. 

Members occasionally meet outside of 
class with the Deaf adults who serve as 
teachers, in order to converse and interact 
socially with the Deaf. One evening was 
spent at the Classe Cafe in Amherst. No one 
at the table used any voice during the night. 
Even when ordering, the members pointed 

to items on the menu or wrote down their 

"(It added) another dimension to class. 
It's important to learn (ASL) in context and 
real-life conversations," said Veronica 
White, a junior industrial engineering ma- 

Not only does UMass HANDS provide an 
environment where students and commu- 
nity members can gather to sign, the club 
also promotes awareness of Deaf Culture. 

"The club is great! I'm learning so much 
about the language and culture of the Deaf," 
said Beth Adler, an undecided freshman. 
Members do not just learn signs out of a 
textbook and leave proclaiming they are 
proficient. Students interact with Deaf 
adults. Discussions pertaining to Deaf Cul- 
ture are fostered. 

Each class is alive with questions and 
answers. In order to appreciate and under- 
stand the language of the Deaf and better 
use it in practical situations, HANDS mem- 
bers begin to realize how important it is to 
be aware of the Culture associated with 

"(HANDS) brings to UMass a chance to 
explore a language and culture so beautiful 
and foreign from our own," said Michele 
Martin, a senior communication disorders 
and zoology major. An officer and one of the 
original members, Martin added, "every- 
one seems to want to know a little bit more 
about (sign). The club offers people an op- 
portunity to act on that curiosity."

The Office of Third World Affairs is a 
multicultural student support service 
agency, working as a division member of 
the Student Affairs. OTWA was established 
in 1976 ar a professional agency in re- 
sponse to the request of students of color for 
an institutional advocacy that would be of 
assistance to them. 

OTWA provides the general student popu- 
lation a professional organizational body 
that assists, organizes, advocates, and pro- 
vides resources that enhance and protect 
their interests. The expanded programs 
offered by OTWA have been instrumental 
in broadening the awareness of students of 
color to the issues of multiculturalism, so- 
cial issues, life skills development, and about 
humanity in general. 

OTWA promotes the importance of ap- 
preciating styles, ethnic and cultural back- 
grounds, and other unique characteristics 
of each individual. The message that rever- 
berates from each activity that OTWA spon- 
sors is that students can create a better 
environment — one in which people recog- 
nize, accept, and seek to develop the unique- 
ness of each individual. The validity of 
others' ethnicity, understanding, and ap- 
preciation for cultural differences is a pri- 
ority which is promoted and encouraged by 

In addition to OTWA serving as an insti- 
tutional advocacy, it develops programs 
and conducts projects that advocate fair- 
ness and humanity for all, and most impor- 
tantly, students of color. OTWA is respon- 
sible for ensuring the viability and effi- 
ciency of students of color organizations 
and development of plans and programs 
that aid to fulfill a second curriculum.

Aftermath of War 

JANUARY — Saddam Hussein is alive and 
well and living in Baghdad — at least by 
most accounts. The Mideast War ended in 
February, 1991. Since that time, former 
President Bush has urged the downfall of 
the 55-year-old leader. 

But within Iraq, Saddam Hussein ap- 
pears to have grown stronger since his 
troops were forced out of Kuwait. He lives, 
however, under a constant threat of death 
by Iraqi opposition leaders and a host of 
other enemies. 

It was this fear of assassination that 
caused him to reorganize his personal body- 
guard corps and appoint his youngest son, 
Qusai, chief of presidential security.

Somalia Under Siege 

AUGUST — Three months after the world 
woke up to one of the worst famines in 
history, food started to reach hundreds of 
thousands of Somalis. Estimates of the dead 
range from 10,000 to half a million, but no 
one knows just how many have perished in 
the Horn of Africa nation. 

The central Bay region of the country has 
been affected the most. It served as the 
main battleground for clans fighting for 
supremacy after Siad Barre's ouster. Con- 
sequently, its harvests were most disrupted 
and its people most uprooted, displaced, 
and left in great jeopardy. 

More than a million Somalis have fled 
their homeland for refugee camps in neigh- 
boring countries, with the wealthier citi- 
zens seeking safe haven in Europe, the 
United States, Canada, and elsewhere. 

Central Somalia is where the interna- 
tional community has concentrated its re- 
lief efforts, with airlifts to the towns of 
Belet Huen, Baidoa, Bardera, and Hoddur, 
and airdrops to smaller villages in the re- 

Many have died in the factional fighting 
that has driven the nation since former 
leader Siad Barre's ouster. Casualty esti- 
mates range from conservative figures of 
10,000 to the 60,000 estimated by the hu- 
man rights group Africa Watch.

Civil War in 

MAY — The territory of Yugoslavia was 
originally a battleground between the 
Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires. 

In 1918, the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, 
and Slovenes was declared, and in 1929 it 
was renamed Yugoslavia. The new country 
was torn by demands for autonomy by 
Croatians who opposed Serbian domina- 

Of the 24 million people living there, 
Serbs account for about 36 percent and the 
Croats for 20 percent of the population. 
Other Slav groups are the Slovenes, eight 
percent; and the Montenegrins, three per- 
cent. Ethnic Albanians make up nine per- 
cent of the population. This cultural diver- 
sity has been a source of strife for centuries. 

President Tito, who ruled from 1945 until 
his death in 1980, kept a tight lid on these 
internal ethnic rivalries. Since his death, 
however, central power has been eaten away 
by the feuding republics. 

Inhabitants of the territory are confronted 
daily by the shelling, sniper fire, and death 
of war. They take to the streets during the 
occasional ceasefire, pushing and shoving, 
trying to buy bread and other staples that 
they need in order to live. 

The war has left thousands dead, has 
sent more than a million fleeing, and has 
lead to the creation of detention camps, 
likened to those of Nazi Germany.

Going for Gold 

JUNE — An era of amateurism passed into 
an age of professionalsim and the Olympics 
were transformed forever, when profes- 
sional athletes were allowed to compete in 
the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, 

Countering the attacks of commercial- 
ism. Coach Chuck Daly argued that the 
presence of pros could do nothing but en- 
hance the event. 

"There's 183 countries and 3 billion people 
watching these games," Daly said. "And 
somewhere out there now is a 13-year-old 
who wants to be a Michael or a Magic, a 
Larry or a Patrick. That's the role of these 
games," he said. "That's what happens in 
all of these sports. It gives people a dream." 

The United States emerged from its two- 
decade Olympic funk, finishing only four 
behind in the closest medals race since 
America won in 1964 in Tokyo. The country 
now stands poised to rule the sports world 
in Atlanta in 1996, after what is arguably 
its greatest Summer Games. 

America's 108 medals surpassed by one 
the total in 1968 and trailed only the in- 
flated totals of the Soviet-boycotted 1984 
Los Angeles Games and the 1904 St. Louis 
Games, attended by just 12 nations.

NOVEMBER — The 1992 presidential elec- 
tion involved the usual surprises and con- 
troversy that go along with a change in 
government. Republican incumbent George 
Bush and running-mate Dan "Potato" 
Quayle tried for re-election. Democratic 
Governor of Arkansas Bill Clinton with 
Senator Albert Gore, and Independent 
multi-millionaire Ross Perot with Admiral 
James Stockdale decided to keep this from 

Many controversies arose during this "in- 
teresting" race, including Ross Perot's in- 
and-out action. Perot was in the election, 
then out, then in again! 

After that, Clinton's college career came 
under fire. It seems that this candidate had 
the gall to "experiment" with drugs. Don't 
worry, he didn't inhale! He was also ques- 
tioned about why he protested the Vietnam 
War while he was at Oxford University in 
England as a Rhodes Scholar. 

When it came down to the wire, the Clinton 
team cleaned up and showed Bush the door, 
leaving Perot with no electoral votes. For 
the first time in 12 years, the office is 
controlled by a Democrat. No more Reagan 
Era. It's time for a change. Good luck Bill, 
you're going to need it!

Raining Cats and 


AUGUST — Hurricane Andrew struck 
southern Florida on August 24, 1992, with 
wind gusting to 164 mpg and a 12-foot tidal 
surge that flattened homes, uprooted trees, 
flung boats into the streets, and wrecked an 
Air Force base. Tent cities were set up in 
Florida with room for 3,800 people. 

55 deaths were directly linked to the 
hurricane — 41 in Florida, 10 in Louisiana, 
and four in the Bahamas. 

The hurricane carved its way through the 
plantation country of Louisiana, throwing 
tornadoes like darts at a 100-mile-wide 
target and pumping torrents of rain at 
storm-weary Louisianians. 

The hurricane's 54-hour U.S. rampage, 
the most expensive natural disaster ever in 
the country, caused damages of an esti- 
mated $20 billion in Florida, $1.5 billion in 
Louisiana, and $250 million in the Baha-

The Recycling Craze 

SEPTEMBER — More than 20 companies, 
includingMcDonald's Corp., Coca-Cola Co., 
and Sears, Roebuck and Co., launched a 
national campaign to encourage U.S. busi- 
nesses to buy recycled goods. 

Recycling has produced vast supplies of 
paper, glass, and other reusable trash, but 
demand is still low. 

The alliance will conduct programs 
around the country to show businesses how 
they can buy recycled goods and use them 
in daily operations. The effort will include a 
database that informs businesses where, 
for example, they might buy memo pads 
made of recycled paper. 

While many Americans look at recycling 
as a way to help the environraent, Reynolds 
Metals Co. and Aluminum Co. of America 
like it for more practical reasons: it saves 
on bauxite mining costs. 

One aluminum company manager said, 
"If you have a ton of glass in your backyard, 
it's worth maybe $35. A ton of steel, that's 
worth maybe $50. A ton of aluminum cans, 
that's worth anywhere between $700 and 

Most major cities in the U.S. either have, 
or have plans for, some type of recycling

Tragedy in Waco 

* PRIL — The standoff between Branch 
J avidian members and federal agents that 
tested for more than two months came to an 
(id on Patriot's Day weekend. The cult's 
'■'-acre compound in Waco, TX was first 
i ided on February 28, leaving four agents 
rthe Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fire- 
n'ms dead and sixteen wounded. Two 
i^anch Davidians were killed. 

The leader of the Branch Davidians, David 
! Dresh, was believed by the religious cult 
: (lowers to be Jesus Christ. Although the 
i ivernment never filed criminal charges or 
\ jarly said what laws the Branch Davidians 
,- id broken before the attack, it is believed 
I at Koresh had violated firearms and ex- 

osives laws. 

The second and final raid was supposed 
, be a surprise, but the ambush failed 

because of an unexplained last-minute 
phone call to Koresh, leaving him in control 
of an extensive amount of illegal weapons. 

The federal government gassed the cult 
members in order to make them flee the 
compound. Five hours later, the entire com- 
pound went up in flames, killing hundreds 
of Branch Davidians, including many chil- 

The fire was believed to have been started 
by the cult members, although survivors 
claim it began when law agents intention- 
ally knocked over a barrel of gasoline. 
Koresh's body was later identified through 
dental X-rays. Officials say he died from a 
bullet wound to the head, although it has 
not yet been determined if it was suicide or

Out with a Bang 

FEBRUARY — In the World Trade Center 
parking garage on February 26 a bomb 
exploded, killing seven people and injuring 
more than 500 others. The blast occurred at 
12:17 p.m. in the three-story underground 
garage, shaking the 110-story tower and 
filling it with smoke within five minutes. 

The explosion created a 100-foot crater 
into which the lower floors of the building 
collapsed, scattering concrete and debris 
everywhere, including the adjacent com- 
muter-rail station. The operations control 
center was wiped out. No electrical or fire- 
alarm systems were activated in the build- 
ing, leaving the occupants confused and 

750 firefighters, along with hundreds of 
police and federal law enforcement offi- 
cials, descended on Liberty Street in New 
York City in order to evacuate more than 
50,000 employees from the tower and sur- 
rounding buildings. 

The firefighters combed the building floor 
by floor through nightfall, rescuing people 
still trapped on the upper floors. As of 9:30 
that night, more than 100 people still had 
not been evacuated, including eight dis- 
abled people on the 94th floor and a group 
of schoolchildren with their adult monitors 
in the elevator on the 40th floor. 

The disabled people were escorted to the 
roof and removed by helicopter. The chil- 
dren, mostly 5- and 6-year-olds, seemed 
calm and in good spirits, compared to their 
adult companions, as they were led through 
the dark and smoky stairways to the ground 

The New York Police Department re- 
ceived more than a dozen telephone calls 
claiming responsibility for the explosion. 
Several calls came from the "Serbian Lib- 
eration Front," although U.S. officials said 
they did not know of any such organization. 

Immediately following the blast, all law 
enforcement agencies in the Washington 
D.C. area were placed on "special alert," as 
were U.S. embassies around the world. At 
press time, a suspect had been arrested but 
no charges had been pressed.

Watch the Bird 

APRIL — Basketball great Larry Bird re- 
tired from the Boston Celtics after a 13- 
year career. "When I played, I played as 
hard as I could. That's what I want to be 
remembered for," he said. The 35-year-old 
Bird was plagued by back problems for the 
last two seasons of his career. His brilliant 
passing, pinpoint shooting, and skillful re- 
bounding made him the ideal team player.

JUNE — William Figueroa, a.k.a. the "po- 
tato kid," waited by a potato vendor's cart 
outside the NBC studios in New York prior 
to his appearance on the Late Night with 
David Letterman show. Figueroa and his 
family were basking in his new-found ce- 
lebrity, gained after he spelled "potato" 
correctly during a spelling bee and Vice 
President Dan Quayle corrected him, incor- 
rectly ("potatoe").

Super Blow Out! 

JANUARY— 52-17! This year's Super Bowl 
could hardly be described as a nail-biter. In 
fact, the only real suspense was who would 
win the coin toss, the Dallas Cowboys or the 
Buffalo Bills. Calling heads turned out to be 
the only thing Buffalo did right during the 
entire game. The Bills lost for the third 
straight time, in consecutive years. 

Dallas quarterback Troy Aikman played 
well enough to garner MVP honors, along 
with the other spoils the winner receives, 
like a trip to Disney World, a spot on The 
Tonight Show, and 50 interviews the morn- 
ing after. Buffalo's Jim Kelly was injured 
during the game, leaving his teammates to 

Unfortunately, these "Super blowouts" 
have become commonplace, while Super 
Bowls where the fourth quarter really mat- 
ters have become painfully rare. The last 
nine Super Bowls have been won by NFC 
teams, often with almost embarrassing 
scores. When the Bud Bowl becomes more 
competitive than the Super Bowl, some- 
thing has to change.

What in the World? 

OCTOBER — There's a new flag flying over 
Canada — the World Series pennant. 

The Toronto Blue Jays took baseball's 
championship outside the United States 
for the first time ever, beating the Atlanta 
Braves 4-3 in 11 innings in game 6. 

After surviving more ninth-inning magic 
from the Braves, the Blue Jays won it all — 
and lost their loser's label forever — when 
Dave Winfield's first World Series extra 
base hit scored two runs with two out. 

"It's been a long, hard battle," Toronto 
manager Cito Gaston said. "But I said from 
opening day, these guys have been focusing 
on this very thing." 

The Braves, meanwhile, became the first 
team to lose consecutive World Series since 
the 1977-78 Los Angeles Dodgers. 

A cheering, chanting, delirious sea of 
humanity flooded Toronto's city center on 
October 25. The glow from this win will 
keep Canadians warm all winter. 

"We stopped the chop" or "the chop stops 
here" shouted revelers, referring to the At- 
lanta fans' ritual.

Clinton Hams it Up 

JUNE — Bill Clinton, sitting in with the 
band, turned out an impressive version of 
Heartbreak Hotel as Arsenio Hall gestured

As They Fade From

They once were on every page of every

this Earth, but they will live forever in our 
memories. We now present our final salute 
to them. 

• Arthur Ashe, a tennis great and cam- 
paigner against constraints on human free- 
dom, died of complications relating to AIDS 
on February 6. 

• Alex Haley, co-author of the 1965 Autobi-

Switzerland home on January 30. Hepburn 
starred in such classics as My Fair Lady 
and Breakfast at Tiffany's before becoming 
a humanitarian for the world's hungry. 

• Benny Hill, British comedian

The Ne-w Students Program is an orien- 
tation for freshmen and transfer students 
that is held during the first half of each 
summer and staffed primarily by UMass 
undergraduate students. The two day pro- 
gram is designed so that the students will 
become better acquainted with their class- 
mates, and more comfortable with the col- 
lege atmosphere. 

During the day, students are encouraged 
to take advantage of the many information 
sessions, including a film on choosing a resi- 
dential area, selection of classes for the fall, 
meetings and interviews for the Honors Pro- 
gram, and campus tours. 

At night the Quad in Northeast, where 
the students are housed, comes alive. The 
students can participate in volleyball or sit 
on the grass and eat pizza and watch a 
movie. Typically, the sound of laughter can 
be heard w^ell into the night. 

On their final day, the students have 
time to meet their parents for lunch at 
Franklin Dining Commons, w^here they can 
discuss the classes they have chosen and 
new^ friends they have made. 

Many of the students w^ho have partici- 
pated in orientation said that the program is 
a good way to meet other people in a relaxed 
environment, without the pressure of aca- 

Some students have problems finding 
buildings — with or without a map. One 
freshman thinks that students are rushed 
into choosing courses, and felt lonely during 
the program because it seemed as if the 
other students already had friends before 
they arrived at UMass. 

But most incoming freshmen and trans- 
fer students agree that overall, summer ori- 
entation is fun, and the friendly counselors 
produce a feeling of excitement about at- 
tending the University.

The alarm clock rang early, its 
loud sound more startling than ever. 
Tired from a night of light and rest- 
less sleep (in •what might have been 
the last time for many endless 
months) in a comfortable bed, you 
roll onto the floor and into the shower 
with your heart racing and stomach 

It's moving-in day. Your family 
seems suspiciously more cheery than 
usual, and your excited hopes for the 
future have suddenly soured as the 
anticipation and fear of what is to 
come starts sinking in. 

The trip to UMass is spent check- 
ing and re-checking that you've got 
everything you'll need during the 
next year. Your parents offer verbal 
assistance intended to soothe your 
frayed nerves, but they really only 
make it ■worse. 

Is it possible that everything you 
own, your life for the past 18 years, 
can so easily be crammed into the 
back of the car? You re-check the list, 

As you arrive on campus it's like 
entering a strange world. You feel so 
small in this place of unfamiliar faces, 
looming buildings, and chaotic go- 
ings-on. It's as if everyone know^s 
each other already, and you're the 
only nervous, out-of-place person 


A white, barren room awaits as 
you lug all your possessions across 
the bustling parking lot and through 
the crovirds of parents and students. 
As you begin to meet random people 
in the halls and outside the building, 
you find that people are friendly and 
just as nervous as you. Your room- 
mate moves in, not the strange, im- 
posing threat you had nightmares 
about, but instead someone very 
much like you. 

As your parents say goodbye you 
find that it is you -who consoles them. 
In fact, your hovering, emotional 
mother and preachy father are be- 
ginning to get in the v/ay of moving- 
in and meeting the people on your 

The faces that w^ere once unfa- 
miliar and uncaring begin to seem 
friendly and open, and the potential 
of your w^hite cell-like room gets more 
exciting as you talk with your room- 

And while, in the excitement of 
moving-in, the fact that you may not 
eat or sleep very well for months may 
not be obvious, the potential of the 
UMass campus and the four (or so) 
years still ahead of you seem incred- 
ible, and you can't "wait to get started.

Out of 

I stepped out of my father's bur- 
gundy Buick and stared in awe at my 
new home. My palms were sw^eaty 
and clammy, and my stomach turned 
in nervous somersaults. 

I had dreamed about college ever 
since I started high school. I had 
looked forw^ard to having freedom 
and being totally reliant upon my- 
self. But suddenly, as I stood in front 
of Dickinson, I had mixed feelings 
about this -whole college thing. Part 
of me -was excited, but a bigger part 
of me w^as ■wondering w^hy I had 
worked so hard to get here in the first 

My parents left and I -was thrust 
into this overw^helming world of 
strange people and confusing emo- 
tions. I w^ondered why I w^as so ex- 
cited about becoming my own per- 
son. I felt out of place and left out. I 
didn't know^ anyone and it didn't seem 
like anyone wanted to know^ me. 

This place seemed so huge, so 
intimidating, and so horrible. And I 
didn't want to be here. I ^vanted to go 

After a few^ days of complaining 
to my parents and crying myself to 
sleep, my feelings started to change. 
I met my next-door neighbors. Sue 
and Amy, and everything slow^ly be- 
gan to fall into place. 

We started hanging-out together 
and ■within a fe'w days ^ve were best 
friends. I joined a few clubs and 
started talking to people in my 
classes. I realized how^ easy it is to fit 
in and meet ne'w people. It just takes 
a little effort and lots of determina- 

I've grown accustomed to my new 
life, and I wonder how I could have 
ever been afraid. Everything I did to 
get here suddenly seems -worth it. 
The fear inside me has been replaced 
by confidence. 

I finally understand -what my 
parents meant when they said these 
would be the best years of my life. My 
home in New Jersey will always be 
there for me, but for now I'm happy 
here, in my home aw^ay from home.

When I was still living the shel- 
tered life at home, and still going to 
high school, my future seemed to be 

i right in front of me, all planned out. 
But somewhere bet'ween my senior- 
year summer and my sophomore year 
at the University, this "grand plan" 

i became extremely complicated. 

My plan -was no longer an option. 

'No more med-school for me, and now 
I'm forced to find a ne-w major. My 
dreams have become just that, 

It seems as though I'm not alone 
-when it comes to trying to figure out 
what to do with the rest of my life. 
Choosing a major is far from easy. 
John Auchter, a sophomore pre-com- 

rmunications major, has been through 

three majors and will probably 
change again. 

"How am I supposed to kno-w what 
I w^ant to do with the rest of my life? 
I'm only 19!" he said. 

Deb McGill, a senior hotel, res- 
taurant, and travel administration 
major, took the same path as Auchter. 
She's tried roughly every major on 
campus! Seriously though, McGill 
has changed majors four times be- 
cause, "I couldn't make up my mind," 
she said. 

What is so difficult about choos- 
ing a major? There are as many rea- 
sons as there are people on Earth. 
The most common answ^er that I have 
heard is that the future is too uncer- 

tain to determine which path to take. 

Everybody w^ants to be able to go 
from college to the -working w^orld 
with a decent future and a paycheck. 
Nobody ^vants to go into the world 
and get bored with what they have 
chosen to "do with the rest of their 

The solution to finding the ideal 
major is still unknown to me. I've 
toyed with the idea of getting out of 
the English department and trying 
something totally new. Oh, w^hat the 
heck, it's only my future. 

In parting, good luck to all w^ho 
are uncertain about the future . You're 
not alone!

From soaking up culture at a lo- 
cal pub to sightseeing at Stonehenge, 
Hadrian's Wall, and York Minster, 
students on exchange at Oxford Uni- 
versity have the opportunity to expe- 
rience the unique culture that is 
Great Britain. 

The Oxford Summer Seminar, in 
its 28th year, is a program founded 
at and operated by the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. The pro- 
gram is open to all American stu- 
dents who desire to study English 

"It was the most intellectually 
inspiring summer I have ever spent, 
and one of the most enjoyable," said 
Bill Kyros, a senior history major. 
"From the high quality of the fellows 
and life within the walls of Oxford 
University to soaking in the British 
culture and traveling to London and 
Paris, I will always remember my 
Oxford experience." 

Students enrolled in the program 
spend six weeks during the summer 
at Trinity College. Oxford is actually 
a collective of more than 30 colleges, 
including Trinity. Each has its own 
faculty, living accommodations, li- 
brary, and office of admissions. 

"Oxford is one of the most beauti- 
ful European cities, and this is ap- 
parent in its compactness and cohe- 
siveness," said David Paroissien, 
English professor and program di- 
rector. "It is a collection of old, 12th 

to 19th century, architectural styles. 
There is no American 'campus.' The 
city is made up of colleges and around 
them are the shops, the pubs, the 
commercial aspects of Oxford." 

The program enrolls 50 to 70 stu- 
dents each summer, and UMass and 
Five College students receive lower 
tuition rates. Students are required 
to complete one six- week course and 
also have the option to take a second, 
three-week course. The classes are 
rich in English tradition, from "The 
Sublime and the Gothic" to "The Brit- 
ish Tradition of Satire," and British 
creative w^riting. 

Each course admits a maximum 
of 12 students who regularly engage 
in one-on-one meetings with their 
teachers. It is not uncommon for a 
tutor to take his or her class on a trip 
to visit the London sites described in 
the w^orks they read about. 

"My best experience at Oxford 
was w^hen a friend and I rented a car 
for a weekend and went to visit 
Cornwall. It is one of the most beau- 
tiful regions in the world," said Jen 
Blunt, a senior English and political 
science major. "The people are amaz- 
ingly friendly, and the countryside is 
filled with ruins. We went to visit 
Tintagle, the castle of King Arthur. 
The ruins of the castle sit on a cliff 
above the sea. I would love to go

College — we're on our ow^n, at 
last. Freedom to do ■what w^e want, 
when -we want. No parents to look 
over our shoulders, no one to tell us 
what to do. And, of course, no squab- 
bling with bratty sisters and broth- 

Then it comes — summer. Time 
to go back to the folks, time to fight 
with the little sister about who's go- 
ing to do the dishes. That is, until the 
fall, when we can go back to being on 
our own — no authority, no family. 

Not alw^ays. With the high cost of 
private colleges and universities, 
more and more young adults are opt- 
ing for state schools, and UMass is 
the first choice for many. This often 
means that parents are sending more 
than one student to UMass at the 
same time. 

I "It's kind of cool," said a woman 
w^hose younger sister also attends 
the University. "We didn't hang-out 
as much at home, but now we see 
each other all the time and do a lot of 
stuff together, even though we live in 
different areas on campus." 

And w^hat about the younger sib- 
ling? She said her sister's presence 
here influenced her decision to at- 
tend UMass, and helped her adjust 
to college life on a campus that can 
seem over-whelming and maze-like. 

Hopefully, the older siblings are 
more than happy to help out. Espe- 
cially w^hen we remember our first 
few d'T.ys at UMass, roaming the cam- 
pus with map in hand and confused, 
embarrassed expressions on our

College hasn't been all that re- 
grettable an experience for me so far. 
How^ever, as a junior, I've had to deal 
with much more stress which has 
caused me to nearly crack on more 
than one occasion. I don't know what 
"seniorship" -will bring next year, but 
if it's any more hectic than what I'm 
going through now, I may have to 
throw^ in the towel. 

People might tell me to relax, and 
I hear their advice. It's just that I 
think there had better be a big prize 
at the bottom of this Cracker Jack 
box because education or not, the 
stress has increased tenfold. 

First and foremost, I've no'w gone 
three straight years with nary a dime 
to my name. Not that I ever had a 
bursting wallet before, but now the 
only thing I can pay is attention, 
which is hard enough. 

The first two years, my family 
could actually afford to send me 
money now and then. It w^asn't much, 
mind you, but green just the same. 
No'w I get excited when I find a nickel 
on the ground. That's w^hy I'm an 
upperclassman still living in the 

Others may figure that by living 
off-campus they're saving money on 
rent and food, but I've got too much 
hassle as it is to w^orry about bills like 
that. The only payments I have to 
make now are for my new^ single (in 
yippee-yahoo, "just up the hill" Syl- 
van), and my ongoing shrink fees. 

And then there's the classes. Al- 
though I'm grateful the registrar 
didn't hit me -with any 8 o'clocks, the 
core of my curriculum is in full effect. 
That means there are no more dippy 
Gen Eds and pass/fail options to ease 
my journalism w^orkload. 

And who can forget the hassle 
that is field experience? Writing cover 
letters, resumes, filing transcripts, 
putting together w^riting samples, 
and riding on that merry-go-round of 
"no experience, no job, but how^ can I 
get experience if I can't get a job?" I 
w^onder if I'll ever w^rite anything for 

Aside from all the complaining I 
do, there are definite blessings to 
being a junior in college. This year I 
turned 2 1 , and although I'm not a big 
drinker, it's nice that I don't have to 
w^orry about fake IDs when I want a 
frosty. I can just sit back and sip 
however much my scrawny income 
can afford. Besides, I only have one 
year left to live it up. 

The fact that my college career is 
already more than half-finished 
makes me shiver, too. I worry about 
making a living because I'm not go- 
ing to be residing at home forever. I 
guess I'll just hope for the best. Be- 
sides, I still have to pass the classes 
~'m in now^ before I can -worry about 
real job. 

'■ez, college and life do seem to 
' )\it worrying, don't they? But, I 
tlf.ey don't have to be.

Once we become juniors and our 
required 30 credit-hours of living in 
the dorms are over, opportunity 
knocks — hterally , on the front doors 
of our new apartments. We can es- 
cape into the real \vorld, •where there 
are no more RAs signing people in, or 
false fire alarms at 2:00 in the morn- 

Ah, the freedom. We can come 
and go \vhenever we want, and drive 
to school instead of hiking across 
campus to get to class. We have call- 
waiting and cable TV, and a kitchen 
with a dishwasher. 

There's nothing like opening the 
front door to get the mail, compared 
with trudging do-wn four flights of 
stairs. And who can forget the par- 
ties: telling a few friends and having 
50 people (that none of the room- 
mates have ever seen before) destroy 
the apartment in their search for the 

We move in with our best friends. 
Why was there no one to warn us 

that these people are slobs, and are 
prone to using the phone at all hours 
of the day and night? There are cat 
fights; friendships -walked on a fine- 
line of love and hate; problems com- 
ing and going. But someho^v it's still 
much better to go home to a couch, a 
TV, and a friend than to a dormitory 
full of strangers. 

Finally we get used to each other, 
again. We've learned each others 
habits, and learned to live in peace 
and live it up. Our best friends are 
really our best friends again. 

Time flies. As our final semester 
dwindles a-way we pack up the things 
that w^e thought w^e'd need and never 
did, try to find some poor sophomore 
to buy our battered furniture, and 
put up signs pleading "Take Over 
Our Lease!" But, even after all the 
fun and the stress, living off campus

Can I See 

Some ID??? 

I never thought I'd get here. 
Schlepping around the dorms fresh- 
man and sophomore year I used to 
sadly wave goodbye to my "of age" 
friends as they went off on what I 
considered a fascinating, exotic event: 
barhopping. Looking back, I don't 
know what I thought these places 
would be like, but during the three 
years that I spent under the age of 2 1 
at the University, I w^as thrilled w^ith 
the idea of the "forbidden." 

So here I am at 2 1 . WTnen I dreamed 
of this age a couple of years ago, I 
envisioned endless nights of party- 
ing around tow^n with my pals. Obvi- 
ously, I was under the impression 
that once I turned 211 would become 
independently wealthy, and be able 
to treat my friends to a few "beehs" 
on a regular basis. Because this 
wealth didn't become a reality, I am 
only able to go out occasionally. The 
constraints of money, classes, and 

real-life w^eigh on me heavily. 

After several months of being 21, 
I've come to a few realizations. The 
best thing about finally being con- 
sidered an "adult," w^ell to a certain 
extent at least, is not going out and 
drinking yourself into a stupor. It's 
having the freedom to go out and 
have a couple of drinks with friends 
in order to relax and ease the pres- 
sures that w^ork, school, and families 
put upon us. Not to mention being 
able to see a plethora of great bands 
that don't give 18-and- over shows. 

I must confess, though, that some 
of the thrill still hasn't worn off. It 
makes me so happy to be carded. 
Every time I go to the "packie" I'm 
still pscyhed when the cashier asks 
for my ID, although I still feel as if 
I'm breaking the la-w. It's just one 
step closer to the "real world." Ugh, 
I wish I w^ere a freshman again.

A Letter from the 

"Yearbook Geek." I used to vieiA? 
that exclamation in a negative way. 
But no-w as a three-year veteran of 
the INDEX and the pubUshing busi- 
ness, I take a sense of pride in calHng 
myself a "Yearbook Geek." It is a 
name that symbolizes all that I have 
done in the past years on the staff, 
and it makes me remember all of the 
time and effort that goes into produc- 
ing a yearbook. 

For many of us, a yearbook is a 
chronicle of the time ive spent at 
school. For myself it goes much deeper 
in that I kno"w \vhat goes into produc- 
ing these pages. Each page has a 
story to tell about how it came to- 
gether, or almost did not come to- 
gether. W^e at the INDEX have put 
parts of ourselves into this book, and 
w^e hope readers will sense that when 
they take their strolls down memory 

Back in September when the staff 
came together for the first time, I 
w^as excited about the possibility of 
getting organized and -winning an 
award for this year's book. Well, w^e 
surprised ourselves by winning one 
for the first 16 pages alone! CON- 

After winning that aw^ard we have 
not let up and the book looks great. I 
w^ish w^e all could go and see it come 
off the press for the first time. You 
are all appreciated and are now^ a 
part of INDEX history. You are do- 
ing a great job in trying to get every- 
thing done under the gun. Thanks, 

Speaking of thanks there are some 
people that have been invaluable to 
us in the production of the 124th 
edition of the UMass INDEX. 
Thanks, first of all to Linda, w^ho 
learned a new^ meaning to the w^ord 

STRESS. I know you may not know^ 
or believe this but you did it right all 
year long. As managing editor there 
is no one to tell you what's right or 
■wrong but I'm telling you that you 
did it right. 

To the other excellent staff mem- 
bers: Scott, Melissa V., Jen, Wendy, 
Joanne, Amy, Melissa B., and Joe, 
you did an outstanding job and you 
can be proud of your accomplish- 
ments. In addition, I would like to 
thank Mom and Dad, Margaret 
Arsenault, the Student Activities 
Office, Jeff Holland for all of the 

advice David "just a Gigolo" Roth 
and his partner in crime Sandy, 
Donna Bell, Mike Sergeant, Neil 
Weidman, Bruno's pizza. Price Chop- 
per, Silver Screen Designs, 
Walsworth Publishing, DaVor Pho- 
tography, and College Publications. 
As the year draws to a close there 
are a fe^w thoughts I would like to 
share with the world. Live fast and 
drive slow, change the smoke detec- 
tor batteries once a year, be good to 
each other, and always appreciate 
the Yearbook Geeks in your lives!

On a special note I would like to mention a friend of mine 

who has made my college experience much more enjoyable. 

Irene Bach is the lady who flips I.D.s in the check cashing 

office. She has been a constant source of smiles, baseball 
stories, cash, and warmth for me during the past four years. 

During this year Irene lost her husband, Joseph Bach, and 
I would like to dedicate my part in this book to his memory. 

I never knew him but I knew his wife, and I want her to 

know that I will always remember her, and that if she needs 

something I will be there. To my friend Irene, thank you for 

all you have done. You will not be forgotten.

Tara Marie Hartnett 

"Good friend, why did you 
have to go, just when I was 
getting to know you? I'll sing 
this song to show you were a 
good friend, they don 't make 
'em quite like you, and in my 
memory you'll always be a 
good, good friend to me. " 
-Kenny Rogers (written by Kim 
Carnes and Dave Ellingson), 
"You Were a Good Friend" 

We lived with you, laughed 
with you, cried with you, and a 
little piece of us died with you. 
Although our time with you was 
much too short, each of us is a 
better person for having known 

Tara, you touched our lives 
with your love and friendship. 
You will remain in our hearts 
and minds forever. 

We love you always.

Like Midnight Mad- 

ness in the fall, Haigis 

Hoopla is the basketball 
event of the spring. Teams 
of students battle three on 
three for the title of cham- 

pion and the glory that goes 

with it. Students, people 

from the community, and 
even vendors gather to cel- 

ebrate the beginning of 

spring and the end of the 
regular basketball season. 

After intense competitions, 

the parties begin. 

heft: A woman charges for the 
ball as the others quickly follow. 
The competition at Haigis was 
intense this year. 
Fhoto by Wendy Su 



The musical event of 

the year is, of course, the 

annual Spring Concert. Ru- 

mors fly weeks ahead of the 

actual day — which bands 

will perform, and who will 

headline ? The day finally ar- 

rives and droves of students 

migrate toward the pond. The 

ducks, meanwhile, head else- 

where. The parachute club 

even made a special jump 

into the pond.

When all is said and

University dearly. We'll re- 

member the bad times too. 

but hopefully we 'II get past 

them. It is time to go on, to use 

the knowledge and skills 

we've learned. Underclass- 

men will return in the fall. 

and seniors will feel like we 

ought to get ready, but will 

know it won 't happen. We 've 

completed our formal educa- 

tion, inside and out.
