Fatal case of meningitis 
sparks student concern 


The University mourned the loss of Joseph Hauck. an active member of the community Hauck 
succumbed to menini{itis on Sunday, Aug. 27. 

Pearce charts new course as dean 


News Editor 

John A. Pearce, Ph.D., was 
named dean of the University's 
College of commerce and Fmantc 
in August. He succeeded Alvin 
Clay, who held the post from 1977 
until his retirement this year. 

Prior to his appointment, Pearce 
held the Eakin Endowed Chair in 
Strategu Management for the 
sch(x)l of business administration 
at George Mason Univfrsity and 
was a State of Virginia Kmincnt 
Scholar. In 1994, he was granted 
the Fulbright U.S. Professional 
Award, which he served in 

One of the first directives Pearce 
issued as dean was to have each 
faculty member submit a listing 
of 20 "uncommitted" hours per 
week during which students could 
have access to him/her. "Teach- 
ing is where we have made our 
reputation," he said, adding that 
the school is one of the few 
business schools taught exclu- 
sively by professors rather than 
a mix of faculty and graduate 

In the future, Pearce wants to 
implement a streamlined core of 
required courses in which dupli- 
cation of material is stopped and 
which relies on fewer classroom 
lectures and more outside reading. 
"This will allow us to reduce the 
number of classes you must take," 
he added. Also, Pearce has plans 
to allow for a higher degree of 
specialization within a student's 
business education through the 
offering of a greater variety of 
elective courses, "so the graduate 
is uniquely positioned in the 

To complement business stu- 
dents' academic education, Pearce 
would like to see the relationship , 
between the school and the bus- 
iness communty improved. To 
this end, he has plans to bring 
business executives into the class- 
room and possibly to arrange 
"mentoring" programs in which 
professors would take students 

with them on tTieTr'ronsuTtafion 
jobs. "This will give students the 
experience of being exposed to 
professors' analytical competen 
cies," said Pearce, likening it to 
learning to play baseball by watch- 
ing a ballplayer, rather than 
simply listening to him speak 
about the game. 

These changes are being 
"phased in everyday," according 

to Pearce He said that some of 
the improvements will be funded 
by the school's own resources and 
by the support of ;thimni .Also, the 
school will kx)k to the business 
community for help. "We need to 
go to the business community and 
persuade them that it is to our 
mutual benefit to have an in- 
creased partnership," he said. He

Students lined up for medica- 
tion at the infirmary last week as 
a result of the sudden death of 
sophomore Joe Hauck from menin- 
gitis. About 1,300 people have 
received a preventive pill from the 
infirmary, said Dr. Denis A. 
Boyle, Jr., medical director at the 
( am pus infirmary. 

Hauck contracted a relatively 
rare form of bacterial meningitis, 
called meningococcal meningitis, 
which attacks the fluid covering 
of the spinal cord and the brain, 
said Boyle. When the disease 
becomes septic, or widespread, 
severe infection occurs and the 
body's ability to fight off the 
bacteria becomes hampered, he 

Early symptoms include fever, 
headache, vomiting, rash, a stiff 
neck, or lethargy. A patient will 
also have low blood pressure and 
a fast heart rate, Boyle said. 

Hauck was a freshman orienta- 
tion coun.selor, and he became sick 
Saturday, Aug. 26, during orien- 
tation rV( ause he was not feeling 
well. Hauck went to his room to 
rest. ViUanova limergency Me<i) 
cal Service brought him to the 
hospital to rett'ive intravenous 
medication (IV) at 1:30 Sunday 
morning, said the Revrjohn Stack, 
O.S.A., dean ot Students. 

Initially, Hauck was treated for 
vomiting and heat exhaustion 
because he was conscious and 
could answer questionss, al- 
though he had a fever and low 

blood pressure, said Stack. 

Hauck responded a little to the 
first IV, but at 4 a.m. he took a 
turn for the worse. His blood 
pressure dropped and he did not 
respond to treatment. It became 
clear the disease was life- 
threatening, Stack'^said. Hauck 
died early Sunday morning. 

"They were doing everything 
they could," said Stack. "They 
were beside themselves." Even 
the nurses cried, he added. 

Doctors did not know the cause 
of death until the tests returned 
at 2 p.m. Sunday. If they had 
known, they may not have been 
able to save Hauck because the 
disease moves so rapidly, said 
Stack, and "it seems to have gone 
to his heart." 

"We don't know how he got it, 
(meningitis)," said Stack. "It 
seems to surface where people are 
living close together, such as in 
a college dorm," he added. 

The bacteria is not airborne. 
Stack said. It can be contracted 
only through close personal con- 
tact such as drinking from the 
sapie cup. As of now, no one else 
has contracted meningitis, he 

Students may take a preventive 
pill called Cipro offered in the 
infirmary for $4. Cipro is an 
antibiotic which is administered 
in one dose. However, it is not a 
long-term prevention, said Boyle. 
"This episode is one of the most 
difficult I've seen in terms of a 
student's death," said Stack. His 
death affected many other stu- 
dents, he added. 

'Nova considers ESPN broadcast 


Editor tn Chief 

Director of Athletics Gene De- 
Filippo will most likely announce 
his derision by the end of today 
regarding whether or not the 
ESPN Total Sports Network will 
air a live broadcast of ViUanova's 
"Midnight Madness." 

This would have been an easy 
decision for DeFilippo, but cover- 
age of the evept occurs on the first 
weekend of the University's fall 
recess. The third-year athletic 
director still has the option of 
scheduling the event for early 
November without ESPN's sup- 

Despite deliberating for almost 
two weeks, DeFilippo insists this 
is not the most difficult decision 
he has been forced to make since 
arriving at Villanova. 

"I don't think it's been that big 
of a decision," said DeFilippo late 
Wednesday afternoon. "I think 
it's tough to make a decision when 
you don't have the facts. If you 
could guarantee me how many 
students are going to come, I'll 
make the decision right row. 
We've never done this before 
when we're on break. 

"The reason it's a difficult 
decision is because we're dealing 
with an unknown out there. Most 
of the decisions we make, we have 
all the facts. It's not easy when 
you don't have all of the facts." 

To help answer some of these 
unknowns, DeFilippo brought in 

members of the Athletic Depart- 
ment, Student Government, the 
Basketball Club, WXVi: and tht> 
Villanovan. This assistance 
came in addition to the advice 
given by members of the admin- 
istration including the Dean of 
Students Rev John P. Stack, 
O.S.A., who had concerns about 
the event that had not yet been 

Stack is concerned with the 
great possibility that the students 
who remain on campus for the 
rally would do nothing but party 
before the actual event. For ob- 
vious reasons, this could present 
a threat to the well-being of the 
students, campus and neighboring 

Men's basketball Head Coach 
Steve Lappas and DeFilippo have 

many of the same thoughts about 
the possible ESPN broadcast of 
the event. 

"We both want to be sure that 
our students, who are our biggest 
supporters and certainly our 
biggest fans, are given every 
consideration," said DeFilippo. 
"He's concerned about recruiting 
because we always use the 'Wild-

BELGRADE. Yugoslavia - 

A four-day period of negotiation 
came to an end Sept. 5 as 
NATO forces resumed their 
bombardment of the Bosnian 
Serbs. Talks failed to find the 
Serbs in a position to remove 
their artillery, which has kept 
Sarajevo under a 40-month 

The decision to resume the 
strikes against the Serbs was 
made when it became evident 
to NATO and UN officials that 
lYic Serbs tailed to "comply 
with UN demands to remove 
military threats against 

Targets for NATO bombing 
appear to have included a 
Bosnian-Serb barracks in Lu- 
kavica, and an ammunition 
plant north of the capital. 

NEW YORK - Newsweek is 
celebrating a victory over rival 
news magazine 7Vm<' this week 
in the wake of its publication 
of an excerpt from Gen. Colin 
L. Powell's memoirs. Time had 
previously outbid Newsweek 
and U.S. News and World 
Report last year for the rights 
to the Random House 

Ttmt planned to publish the 
excerpt on Sept. 7 to coincide 
with the release of Powell's 
book, "My American Journey." 
However, Newsweek got the 
story first and claims it is 
legitimate. Those at lime and 
Random House charge that 
ethics violations came into play 
while Newsweek worked to 
acquire the story. 

The Newsweek angle consists 
of political and national secur 
ity policy analysis done to 
sidestep copyright questions. 

Special to the Villanovan ' 

Although the summer months 
pass by all ((Kxjuickly, it is always 
a pleasure tor nu' Xo welcome our 
Villanova community to a new 
academic year. The campus re- 
mains alive during the summer 
with summer sessions and the 
various academic and adniinistra 
tive activities, but the vitality ul 
campus life accelerates dramati- 
cally with the return of our 
student body and faculty as the 
new academic year begins. ' 

As always, the orientation pro- 
gram tor incoming students was 
eminently successful. The feed 
back received, especially from 
parents of the new students, was 
highly complimentary. Typically 
they noted the spirit, friendliness 
and helpfulness of the student 
orientation team. These student 
leaders provide a valuable service 
to the University by establishing 
a tone for incoming students 
which tends to have a lasting 

The shocking sudden death of 
Joe Hauck, coinciding as it did 
with the final day of orientation, 
served to heighten campus aware- 
ness of the positive impact that 
one person can have on a large 
community in a short period of 
time. Joe's service as an orienta 
tion counselor, Eucharistic min- 
ister, volunteer, excellent student 
and warm and friendly human 
being, are affirmed by record and 
by all who knew him. He will be 
deeply missed at Villanova, but he 
will be remembered as one who 
epitomized the values for which 
the University stands. 

During the past few weeks, we 
have suffered the loss of several 
other highly valued members of 
our University community. The 
Rev. Lawrence Gallen, O.S. A. .our 
recently retired vice president for 
Academic Affairs, passed away 
Aug. 18. (Jallen was an outstand 
ing teacher and administrator for 
many years at the University. 

We also were shcnked with the 
sudden death of Dr. Mary Ann 
Griffin, director of Falvey Memor- 

ial Library. Griffin provided 

highly professional leadership to 
the Library for 1 1 years. 

During this same peri(xi we 
have lost Harold Grover who has 
served in Dining Services for 15 
years and James Harley in Cus- 
todial Services for 11 years. Most 
recently we received notice of the 
death of Dr. Fritz Nova, a retired 
long-term member of our faculty. 
Nova was a distinguished scholar 
and highly resptxted teacher. He 
was founding chair of the depart- 
ment of political science. 

The unusual coincidence of 
these deaths with the initiation of 
the academic year provides pause 
for thought. Their ages ranged 
from 19 to 80 and were evenly 
spread between extremes. 
Their presence to the Villanova 
community extended from just 
over a year to more than 40 years. 
Their roles varied — student, 
professors, vice president, librar 
ian, custodians — yet they all 
were vital contributors to the life 
of our University. They made 
their marks on the University in 
many ways and their influence 
will endure within Villanova's 
living memory. 

We begin the academic year 
with new academic leadership. 
On Aug. 7, Dr. John Johannes sue 
ceeded Gallen as vice president for 
Academic Affairs. Johannes is 
eminently qualified to build on 
(iallen's considerable achieve 
ments and to lead our academic 
programs to even higher levels. 
On Aug. 14, Dr. John Pearce 
succeeded Dean Alvin Clay upon 
his retirement as dean of the 
Collegeof Commerce and Finance. 
Again, we anticipate a sm(X)th 
transition — excellence building 
up(jn excellence. 

I look forward to an exciting 
year, 1 urge all memln^rs of the 
University community to partic- 
ipate fully in the ongoing life of 
the University, continuing to 
build up(3n the heritage of 
who preceded us and whom we 
remember fondly.

Underpass construction 
to commence in IVIarch 


An underpass will be built lieneath Lancaster Ave. to connect the Main Lot with Bartley Circle. 
Construction is expected to begin in March. 

UNIT introduces new options 


News Editor 

The Office of University Infor- 
mation Technologies (UNIT) has 
implemented three new options 
for students interested in activat- 
ing personal accounts on campus, 
said Karin Steinbrenner, execu- 
tive director of UNIT. Students 
were notified of the additions 
during the summer, and according 
to Steinbrenner, students' interest 
and response was overwhelming. 

The first new option available 
to campus residents is "dorm 
connectivity." This feature allows 
students to be connected to the 
campus computer network, 
VUNET, via a connectivity kit, 
from their own personal compu- 
ters. Most standard kits cost 
approximately $75 and may be 
purchased in the University book- 
store. However, "There is no 
automatic connection," said Stein 
brenner. Registration forms en 
closed m the kit must be returned 
to the UNIT office for further 
assistance from the newly 
founded Student Help Desk, 
which will help activate the 
necessary connections. 

The Student Network Server is 
the second major change to the 
services of UNIT. "Every student 
has a student identification on the 
Novell Server," a computer sys- 
tem, said Steinbrenner. Through 
this server, students will have 
access to services such as Pegasus 

Mail and VMS Mail, both elec- 
tronic mail systems, as well as 
WordPerfect and Quattro spread- 
sheet. Students may also access 
the Campus Wide Information 
System, Falvey Library computer, 
the VAX computer cluster, depart- 
mental computer lab resources 
and Internet services. Such access 
may be used "to communicate 
with anyone in the world," she 
added. Computer consultants at 
campus computing sites (base- 
ments of Barley, Mendel and 
Tolentine) and on-line help servi 
ces are available to assist in 
developing skills necessary to use 
such programs. 

Student account names consist 
of the first letter of the name, 
followed by the first five letters 
of the last name followed by a 
numeric qualifier, 01, in most 
cases. Students' tempxjrary pwss- 
words are their scxrial security 
numbers. Passwords may then be 
changed to ensure that no one 
other than the student has access 
with one specific password. 

UNIT has created the Student 
Help Desk, which consists of 10 
students who were trained during 
the summer in the systems cur- 
rently available. "Their primary 
task is to get students in the 
dorms connected" to VUNET, 
Steinbrenner said. Since over 300 
kits and 200 registration cards 
have been returned to UNIT, 
response by the Help Desk may 
be slow. "The interest is tremen 
dous," Steinbrenner said. 

These options are not currently 
available for off-campus residents 
due to wiring and carrier consid- 
erations, said Steinbrenner. How 
ever, off-campus residents may 
dial into the University system 
with a modem. Access will be 
slower, and no access will be 
available to Windows and the 
Internet. However, UNIT is ex 
ploring options which would per 
mit all University students to 
have the same access, she added. 


Si nior h'fporttr 

An underpass will be built in 
March Ix'neath Lancaster Avenue 
to connect the Main Lot with 
Bartley Circle. The intersection of 
Lancaster and Ithan was selected 
because accidents have occurred 
at this crossing in the past. 
"When school is in session, 15,000 
people cross at this light daily," 
said John J. Gallen, executive 
director of Facilities Management . 
"It is an accident waiting to 
happen," Gallen added. 

At the Main Lot the underpass 
will be 35 feet wide, and on the 
Bartley side of the street the 
underpass will be widened to 45 
feet across. Throughout, the 
underpass will be 8 and one-half 
feet tall. It will be landscaped and 
well-lit, Gallen added. The con 
struction of the underpass will 
take advantage of the topography 
of the area. "It will be level almost 
throughout," Gallen said. Overall, 
approximately 45 parking spaces 
in the Main I.ot will be lost to the 

Once finished, there will be no 
crossing available from the small 
Main Lot (across from the Jake 
Nevin Field House), and the side- 
walks along South Ithan Avenue 
will be removed to encourage the 
use of the underpass, Gallen said. 
The sidewalk along Lancaster 
Avenue will be lined with Ginko 
trees, and Ithan Avenue will be 
lined with Purple Plum trees. "It 
will be very attractive," he said. 

The project is a joint venture 
between the University and the 

Pennsylvania Department of 
Transportation (IVnnDO 1"). "The 
University will be paying for 
anything which is outside the 
right of way, which is sidewalk 
to sidewalk," Gallen said. Fenn 
DOT will be awarding the con 
tract to a company in Decemlx-r. 
Construction of the underpass 
will not begin until March and the 
estimated time of construction is 
two years, he added. 

Phase I will begin in March 
when Lancaster Avenue will be 
widened by 10 feet. This phase 
should be completed in two to 
three months. 

Construction of the underpass 
will begin during Phase II on the 
south corner (Main Ix)t). Three 
lanes will be open to traffic on 
Lancaster Avenue, Gallen said. 
There will be no access to South 
Ithan Avenue from Lancaster 
Avenue, although only 75 to 100 
parking spaces in the Main Lot 
will be sealed off. This phase is 
expected to take eight to nine 
months, he added. 

Phase 111, which should take as 
long as Phase II, will consist of 
the construction of the underpass 
on the north corner of Lancaster 
and Ithan Avenues (in front of 
Bartley Hall). 

No disruptions will fx'ciir unlil 
March, Gallen said. The construc- 
tion has been planned so as to 
begin the main part of the con- 
struction over the summer when 
there are fewer students and less 
traffic. "Bear with us. it'll be a 
bit inconvenient while it is hap 
pening, but after it's done it'll be 
very convenient and useful," 

West Campus staff increased 

New C and F dean 

(Continued from page 1) 
added that the community is very 
"appreciative" of Villanova's 
business school. "Our students 
are in demand," he said. 

"The business school is the 
attractive school it is because of 

the advancements made under

Pearce. "But the decision to go in 
a dramatically new direction was 
their decision." he said, referring 
to the faculty's role in his appoint 
ment. "They want the initiatives 
I am sponsoring," he added.

One decision has already been 
made. If the University's athletic 
director commits to F!SPN, which 
will only covers three "Midnight 
Madness " events on the Oct. 14 
weekend, the event will take place 
in thejake Nevin F'ieldhouse This 
means that problems with lighting 
and sound are also an issue. The 

sports network, however, assured 
DeFilippo that they would be able 
to handle those factors.

director for F^xternal Relations

'You've got to l(K)k at a lot of 
different variables," said Hofferth 
"I would just say at this [xnni 
we're still in the pr(x:ess of weigh 
ing everything. "

After last year's test run, the 
Office of Residence Life has de- 
cided to add personnel in the West 
Campus Apartments this fall. 

Last year's four person staff has 
been quadrupled in an attempt to 
establish a larger University 
presence and tocurtail vandalism, 
said Dr. Christine Lysionek, direc^ 
tor of Residence Life. 

"We wanted to strike a com 
promise," said Lysionek. "We 
don't want people to feel restricted 
in their activities over there and 
we don't want to be obtrusive 
with our presence, however, the 
vandalism was difficult. 

"When you open brand new 
buildings like that and a lot of 
attention is put into making them 
look attractive and to give people 
a quality living experience, almost 
any vandalism is too much," said 

Lysionek said most of the com 
mon area damage was probably 
done by students who were not 
residents of the apartments and, 
therefore, felt no .sense of owner 
ship. Asa result, Lysionek and the 
Office of Residence Life have 
devised a plan with much tighter 
security that will prevent non 
residents from wandering around 
buildings weekend nights "look 
ing for social life" as was the case 
last year 

Under the new system, four 
Apartment Assistants (AA) will 
sujx'rvise the buildings on Thurs 
day nights from 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. 
Each building will have an AA at 
the front desk, with two others 
doing rounds throughout the 
buildings on Friday and Saturday 
nights between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. 

"What we really wanted was 
some form of lobby presence on 
the weekends with traffic routed 

through one entrance," said Ly- 
sionek. "If you come in with 
guests, you can just let an AA 
know that those guests are with 
you. That way the guests are 
connected to a resident in some 

From 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on week 
ends, students will only be able 
toaccesseach building through its 

main lobby. During this time, all 
\isitors must be accompanied by 
a resident of the apartments and 
will be required to sign in. 

Direct Wildcard access for non 
residents will only be allowed 
tx'tween 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each 
day. During any hour outside of 
these, guests must be admitted by 
a resident of the apartments. 

Orientation facilitates 
fresiiman transition 


Assistant News Editor 

Nearly 1,700 new students 
participated in the University's 
annual orientation between Aug 
24 and Aug. 27. The theme of this 
year's event, "Striving To- 
gether. . . Villanova Forever," was 
taken to heart when students 
faced difficulties during their first 

The large size of this year's in 
coming class caused minor prob 
lems to the program, such as 
shortages of the freshmen record 
and keychains that are issued to 
each incoming student. "There 
were 76 Orientation Counselors 
(O.C.'s), juSt like every other 
year," said Kathy Byrnes, assist- 
ant to the dean of Students "The 
only difference was that each 
group had about 24 to 25 students, 
whereas in the past, each group 
had around 23 students" These 
small groups prevented any as 
similation problems that a class 
of this size might normallv have, 
Rvrnes added 

The orientation program is a 
four day series of activities de- 
signed to ease the transition for 
new students by familiarizing 

them with the UniversityThis 
year's activities included presen 
tations by various University 
departments, an activities forum 
and spirit events, includinggames 
and cheers. Many of Sunday's 
activities were cancelled, how 
ever, due to the sudden death of 
Joseph Hauck, one of the pro 
gram's Orientation Counselors. 

The staff was informed of 
Hauck's death at their morning 
meeting and the early activities 
for the (lay were cancelled. "Many 
of the counselors were very close 
to Joe and felt that they needed 
some time off to regain their 
composure before they could go 
about doing their duties," Byrnes 
added. Hauck's group was met 
with l)efore the daily rotations 
began and an element was added 
to the Orientation Mass to ac- 
knowledge his death "joe's orien 
tation group wrote a Ix-autiful 
poem and shared it at the Mass. 

"Orientation did what it sets 
out to do every year. It eased the 
transition," Byrnes said. "From 
my jx-rspective, a lot of the gcxxl 
was overshadowc^d by the sadness 
of J(K''s death, but I think it rt'ally 
showed the new students what a 
caring and close knit ((inHiiumty 
Villan(»va is."

"Wildcat Roar," formerly known as "Midnight 
Madness" when it actually occurred at midnight, marks 
the beginning of the basketball season as far as most fans 
are concerned. In the last three years, it has become one 
of the University's most anticipated and exciting athletic 
events. There is a possibility that many students may 
not be around to see this year's festivities in person. 

Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo is in the process 
of making a very difficult decision. ESPN has contacted 
him regarding the possibility of airing a live broadcast 
of the Wildcat's first practice. The sports network will 
only televise three "Midnight Madness" events in the 
nation on Oct. 14T5. 

Normally he would have jumped atthis terrific 

***^pport'aniTy: hGw&vei', the Casts' 'first pract^^ is also ttie 
first Sunday of the University's October break. 

There are too many unknowns in this situation, 
according to DeFilippo. Will they come? Will students 
sacrifice the first weekend of fall break to attend this 

Students will come, Mr. DeFilippo, students will most 
definitely come. 

If Gene DeFilippo rejects the most recognizable sf)orts 
network in the world from televising this event, he 
deprives the team, fans and the University of the 
recognition this broadcast can provide.

CAT IS roaring 

Throughout the years, the Campus Activities Team 
(CAT) has been the target of much criticism by students 
and at times by the Villanovan because there have not 
been a large number and variety of activities to attend 
on campus. However, CAT has been working hard to 
attain a more interesting lineup of activities at the 
University, and, as a result, several new and exciting 
events have been planned for the fall semester. 

CAT has done an excellent job setting up this fall's 
calendar of events. Several celebrities are scheduled to 
appear on campus, along with annual favorites like the 
CBS College Tour, that will be kx-ated near the Oreo Sept 
11 and 12. 

This full activities calendar is a sign of good things 
to come. However, the only way to ensure that these 
activities will continue is for students to show up. Please 
show CAT your support by attending as many events 
as possible. 

Fr. Dobbin: Thanks — 

At the end of the spring 1995 semester, we, at the 
Villanovan, recommitted ourselves to producing a 
newspaper of improved quality for our readers whether 
they are students, faculty, staff or alumni. In order to 
achieve our lofty goals, we embarked on a lengthy 
. campaign to better equip the office of the Villanovan. 

We are |)leased to announce the approval and 
acquisition of new computer technology that will help 
(he Villanovan reacli the high standards required to 
produce a successful, timely and attractive publication 
in this age of advanced technology. 

Fvervone at the Villanovan would like to give 
sincere thanks to the Reverend EdmundJ. Dobbin, O.S.A., 
who understood our goals as a newspaper and did 
everything he could to help us reach those goals. 

We would also like to thank Daniel McCiee, Emil 
Kotschneff and everyone at the University Computing 
and Information Services (UNIT) for their time and effort 
in arranging and installing our new computer system. 

As we continue to install and work with our new 
system, we ho{X' that our readers will be patient with 
us during this transition (>eri{xl.

would like to offer a public tribute 
Ironi the i)ers[)ective of a faculty 
member who came to the Univer 
sity in the latter years of Father

tetAiew with Father (iailen when 
I first visited the campus in 199(» 
as a candidate for a teaching 
position in the political science 
department. While Fm sure we 

discus.sed the university, the job 
opening, and my professional 
background, what ha.s always 
stayed in my mind was a conver- 
sation we had about Father 
dallen's mother. I had noticed a 
framed photograph on his desk of 
a beautiful, glamorous woman 
and asked him about it. He told 
me with obvious pride about his 
mother and her career as an opera 

While junior faculty do not 
normally have many (xrasions to 
talk with a Vice President for 
Academic Affairs, I found that, at 

those times when I did need to talk 
to Father, he was attentive and 
unfailingly kind. 

I guess it IS the old fashioned 
Catholic in me, but when I re 
turned from research travels in 
late August and learned that 
Father (iailen had died, I pictured 
in my mind a grand reunion in 
Heaven with his loved ones.

Hillary and U.S. delegation should come home 


Staff Reporter 

Hillary Clinton should not be in 
China. Nor should a United States 
delegation be at the Fourth World 
Conference on Women. The only 
feminists who belong in China 
right now are Chinese feminists. 
But for some reason, the world's 
women have descended upon the 
People's Republic of China to meet 
and discuss women's rights. 

Is this some sort of joke? China 
is no place to hold any conference 
on rights, let alone women's 
rights. They are infamous for 
their human rights violations, 
most notably the Tienamen 
Square Massacre of 1989. Yet just 
one year later, the UN chose China 
as the site for this conference. 

You don't have to be a feminist 
to realize that women in China are 
not treated as equals. The govern- 
ment's one-child policy has pres- 
sured many women into abor- 
tions. Since male children are 
more valued, sex-selective abor- 
tions will often be performed if the 
mother finds out she is pregnant 
with a girl. 

If she does give birth, female 
babies are often abandoned at 

convents and orphanages (which 
could explain why Chinese adop 
tion policies provide for the adop 
tion of girls, but not boys). How 
can any "pro-choice" woman 
advocate going to a country that 
provides no choice for its women? 

In addition to these sexist 
policies comes China's deplorable 
human rights record. We take 
freedom of expression for granted, 
but in China, people have been 
executed for saying they prefer 
democracy. Police have t)een di- 
rected to silence any protestors 
who criticize Chinese policies at 
Huairou, where the non 
governmental forum delegates are 

Violence has already marred the 
conference. Women wrestled with 
authorities over the possession of 
a videotape detailing the tortures 
of Tibetan nuns. The videotaf>e 
was eventually shown, though 
with heavy police monitoring. 
However, a stipulation of the UN 
conference is that freedom of 
expression must be guaranteed to 
all delegates. Somehow, I don't 
think fisticuffs between partici- 
pants and police is a stellar 
example of that rule. 

Why is the videotape so impor

Associate Editor 

It was a breezy summer night 
as I sat in the upper deck, $5, "sit 
anywhere you like," general ad- 
mission seats at Veterans' Sta- 
dium in South Philadelphia. My 
normally icy cold cynical mind, 
unmelted by a lifetime of humid 
Miami summers, was in the de- 
froster that fateful 74-degree 
night. For some reason, my 
thoughts arranged themselves in 
a particularly optimistic order, 
something to which 1 am not 
normally accustomed. 

That seemed odd considering 
both teams on the field were in 
the midst of mediocre seasons. 
The scant crowd reflected this. 

What thawed my usually "let 
me see ycju get down" self was 
simply this; baseball was back, at 
least, in my mind. 

Anyone who knows me also 
knows that I loathe Philadelphia 
six)rts, esfxrially the Phillies. But 
tonight felt different. As the 
Phillies wallowed 14gamesbt^hind 
my beloved Atlanta Braves, I 
began to see through my own 
prejudices right through to the 
purity of the game. 

Names such as Flster, Flora, 
Jordan and Whiten appeared on 
the Philly lineup card in place of 
Morandini, Stocker, Dykstra and 
pjs<'nreich. Who, you might ask, 
are these guys? 

On any other night they might 
have been the journeymen ball 
players a Brave fan (ielights in 
seeing on the Phillv roster But 
tonight was six'cial. 

Those four "journeymen" led 
an 18-hit Philadelphia attack, 
keyed by a 4.'{l-foot homer hit by 
Mark Whiten into the upper deck. 
Any baseball fan delights in 
seeing a dinger of this magnitude 
on a late August night, even a 
"still bitter over VMV Atlanta 

The Philly offense was nothing 
short of unstoppable as I watched 
in utter awe from my f)erch high 
above the turf as they turned a 
6-1 deficit into a 16 8 victory over 
the Matt Williams — less San 
Francisco Giants. 

It struck me as funny that a 
team as mediocre as the Phillies 
could put it all together in one 
night and score 16 runs on 18 hits, 
five on which left the park. 

Kevin Elster, a shortstop with 
out a job as of last spring, kn(K-ked 
in four runs to double his total 
tor the season. And, of course, you 
had your normal contributions 
from Jeffenes, Daulton and 

For t he Giants. Barry Bonds did 
his usual offensive damage, 
mixed, of course, with a h<'althv 
side of loafing. 

But. tonight, even Bonds, pos 
sibly the best player in the game, 
couldn't match the play of the so 
called no-namers. They gave no 
thing but 100 percent in a game 
that meant little or nothing, 
unless you're a fan of the new- 
wildcard system. But that's for 
another time. 

These are the truly great play 
ers in the game. We, as fans, 
expect Jefferies and Daulton to 
provide us with excitement. It's 
the unexpected excitement that 
keeps me going back to the 

We'll see Darren Daulton hit 2,S 
high fastballs out of the ballpark 
in the course of a season. I expect 
that; therefore, I fail to find it 
exciting anymore. It's like being 
married for 90 years: go(Kl but 
boring. (1 mean it would afifxar to 
be boring.) 

But to see Elster hit a bases- 
( learing triple to ice the game, as 
hedid in thiscontest now that's 
entertainment. An upper deck 
shot is even better, especially 
when it's hit by a player like 

No media hype, no inflated 
salary, just plain, all American, 
bluecollar baseball. It's baseball 
the way it's supposed to be playf^. 

So the next time Dutch go<>s 
down swinging in the clutch, and 
It does happen when he is not on 
the disabled list, don't lose hope 
J(x> Shmoe is on deck waiting to 
make his mark on the world of 
baseball. And, if Joe fails, John Doe 
is waiting Ix'hind him 

tant, anyway^'' The UN has no 
control over conference attend 
a nee. As the host country, China 
regulates whom may enter her 
borders. The Tibetan nuns cannot 
testify toother delegates in person 
because China denied them visas. 
A few Tibetan women managed 
to sneak in, but they have been 
harassed by pwlice. Their presence 
is considered a protest against 
China, who has told all conference 
participants they must not dem- 
onstrate against the government. 
The only argument in favor of 
conference attendance is that the 
world's women may teach the 
Chinese about feminism. How- 
ever, it is very unlikely that any 

Chinese women will be receiving 
information from this' conference. 
The government has placed the 
non governmental delegates 3.^) 
miles from the official UN site, in 
the tiny town of Huairou. 

All traffic in and out of the town 
in strictly controlled by means of 
roadblocks and checkpoints. It is 
so strict that the organizer of the 
conference was not able to get in 
without a pass. How are ordinary 
Chinese women supposed to gain 
access to these feminists? Even 
the villagers have been instructed 
not to talk to the delegates. And 
let's face it — when you could be 
beaten by the police for chatting 
with feminists, you probably 

won't do It. 

So, Hillary, please come home. 
You don't iH'long in China. Your 
presence merely serves to legilim 
ize this event. After all, this 
conference is doing nothing for the 
rights of women. Its whole focus 
has shifted from feminism to 
police brutality. 

With so much time being spent 
on governmental complaints, 
women will gain nothing from 
this conference except bruises. 
China, however, will have shown 
the world that its fascist policies 
are acceptable to the UN. In the 
end, nothing will change. 

Summer sizzles with news 


The summer of 1995 will go 
down as one of the deadliest 
summers in recent United States 
history. In Chicago alone, 
hundreds of people died from the 
excessive heat and its many 
effects. But the heat wasn't the 
only big story of the sweltering 
season. What follows are, in no 
particular order, 10 of the top 
stories of Summer '95. 

1) The Korean War Memorial 
opened in Washington. D.C. The 
veterans of Korea, often termed 
"The Forgotten War," were given 
their much-deserved and much 
overdue recognition. Additionally, 
the memorial serves as a reminder 
to an entire generation of Amer 
ican citizens that has never had 
to face the prospect of being 
drafted. The wall's message is 
powerful in its brevity: "Fre^edom 
IS not Free." 

2) The "Good O' Boys Koun 
dup" in Tennessee Hills was 
linally exposed. The whites-only 
gathering of ATF agents that 
catered to obvious and disgusting 
displays of racism was the latest 
dent in the embattled agency's 
image as protector of law. 

'A} Billy Tau/in of Louisiana 
became the fifth congressional 
l)em(KTat since the 1994 elections 
to defect to the Republican Party. 
Citing close minded leadership 
and a "values meltdown. " Tau/m 
lumped to the GOP in a move that 
helf^X'd illustrate the erosion of the 
DemcH-ratic Party in the .South. 
For the first time since 1872, 
Republicans hold majorities in 
both the state legislatures and 
federal representatives of the 
South. On a similar note, the 
number of Democratic state repre 
sentatives nationwide that have 
switched to the GOP since No- 
vember broke the 100 mark. 

4) The Supreme Court finished 
a resonating term as it made a 
move to discontinue gerrymand 
ering and imposed strict new 
limits on ix)litically charged affir 
mative action programs. The new 
view was best elucidated by Jus 
tice Thomas who said, "(.oveni 
ment cannot m. ike ns equal Item 
only recognize, respect and [)rote( I 
us as e(|ual In'fore the law" 

.'>! congressional hearings, 
ranging from Whitewater to Waco 
to Rubv Ridge, heljx'd paint the 
varKJUs accounts in a c(jnsistent 
pattern of inconsistency. The 
hearings also became the stage for 
a trans Atlantic spat between the 
Washington Post and the Sunday 
Telegraph, Ix)ndon's largest qual 
ity Sunday newspajx'r. In short, 
the Post criticized any members 
of the press, including the Tele 
graph, who didn't fall in line with 
the official account of Vincent 
Foster's death. The Telegraph 
responded by citing several in 
stances of what it call<xi the Post's 

"active disinformation" over the 
past several years. 

6) Harry Wu was arrested and 
eventually released by China. Wu, 
an American citizen traveling 
with a valid passport and entry 
visa, was detained because he had 
exposed several human-rights 
violations within the Commtinist

shocking is that the United States 
remains unfazed and will again be 
content to ignore China's menac-

involuntary sterilization as it

7) Mickey Mantle died within a 
few months of a liver transplant. 
The Mick's message, as he faced 
the prospect of his death, was a 
clear indictment of the alcohol- 
ridden, undisciplined life that led 
him to his grave. Mantle, who had 
been a hero for so many, saved 
his greatest heroism for his final 
days. His nu-ssage was forceful 
and unmistakable, but will it be 
heeded by those who need it the 

8) Sen. Phil Gramm breathed 
some life back into his campaign 
and finished even with Bob Dole 
in an Iowa straw poll, (iramm 
t(M)k the lead in t he welfare debate 
t)y co-sf)onsoringa reform package 
that went beyond the soft 
ix'dalling half measures that Dole 
backed. Gramm also broadened 
his apjx'al by setting the social 

issue agenda, again stealing the 
thunder from Dole. Dole's attacks 
on Hollywood were well-publicized 
and well-received, but Dole 
couldn't take full credit since Dan 
Quayle had said the exact same 
thing four years ago. 

9) Pope John Paul II officially 
called for Christian unification. 
John Paul has always demon 
strated a profound understanding 
of the problems facing Christian- 
ity and has always had a habit 
of measuring every word he ut- 
ters. As a result, his encyclical has 
been greeted with expectation by 
both Catholics and Protestants 
who believe that the Pope's mes- 
sage offers legitimate hope for 
reconciliation among certain 

lU) Scott O'Grady was shot 
down and rescued. For days, he 
survived on bugs and rain water. 
His ordeal was impressive, as was 
his reaction when he rrlurncd 
home. He became a bright light 
in the otherwise dark cloud of our 
Bosnian policy. He credited his 
rescuers, his training and his 
faith in God. For the first time in 
the Bosnian debacle, .Americans 
h;i(l ir.ison to tclehrate. 

Indffd, this summer was a busy 
time in America and around the 
world. However, many questions 
have been left unanswered. Only 
time will tell whether this 
summer provided a stepping stone 
toward greater things. 

Rattle the handle 


Slijit h'ipiirt, > 

"Mom, the water won't stop 
going, and I have to go again." 

"Jiggle the handle. Peter, that 
will fix It." 

What IS iigghng the handle'' 
We've all done it, we know what 
It df)es, but IS there an inner 
meaning'* It will hv my quest this 
year to examine issues, trivial or 
not, and control them, that is, my 
thoughts about them, and get 
them on paper in a nice neat 
package. In a sense, I am jiggling 
the handle of life; striving to 
(ontrol these swirling random 
thoughts, and making my head as 
tranquil as a toilet that's readv 
to use. 

Believe me, there are plenty of 
things out there that need to Ih' 
discussed Why do freshmen gain 
weight^ Why is one's 21st birth 
day the real gateway to adulthood J* 
Why should the umbrella be 
outlawed? Can the Red Sox finally 
go all the way this year? And most 
importantly, will 1996 be the year 
of the mutual fund or the standard 
money market CD?" 

I plan to dissect these and other 
issues more comprehensively 
than a medical school would 

dissect a cadaver. Hopetully, vou. 
the reader, will then Ix- able to 
take my input and jiggle your own 
handles and make sense out of the 
random stuff you ponder while 
sitting "where the [)a|x^r flows 
like wine." 

I think some background infor- 
mation on vour guide for this 
porcelain lourney is pertinent 
because it might help to know 
who's responsible for putting all 
of these crazy thoughts into your 

My name is Peter Chnsto|)her 
McDonough, you can call me Pete. 
Peter, or even PC I've always 
liked the idea of Ix'ing ( ailed PC. 
because it remind(>d me of T.C. 
from "Magnum PI." If you don't 
remember, T.C. flew that c(K)I 
heluopter Ihettnly problem with 
PC. IS the P. It gives off the 
impression that my name is like 
urine, and although I've always 
liked the idea of Ix-ing called PC, 
jXThaps we should )ust stick with 
Pete or Peter. 

Anyway, I'm a senior English 
major from the Greater lioston 
area. Since I declared my major, 
I have been pretty sure of what 
I want to do with my life about 
a dozen different times

A Lasting Impression 

What's In Your Head? 

Life continues in the walce of death 


Features Editor 

"llmmm. . . excuse me, can you 
help me? I uh. . . I have no. . . IJm. . . 
I have no idea how to buy a 
sympathy card and. . uh. . . I have 
to buy one. . . " 

Earlier this week in the book- 
store, 1 couldn't help overhearing 
this dialogue of an obviously 
distressed student. What she 
asked had apparently gone unno 
ticed to those around me; yet it 
really struck me as unusual. As 
I waited in line I had a great deal 
of lime to realize the true impli- 
cations of this seemingly simple 
(juestion. As superficial as it may 
sound, this Hallmark dilemma 
exemplified something of far 
deeper significance. 

As we grow up, we quickly learn 
that it is proper to send birthday 
cards for one's birthday, anniver 
sary cards on anniversaries, and 
even "(ietwell-soon" notes [o 
those feeling under the weather. 
Yet seldom are we taught what 
to send when someone should die. 

Nor are we taught what to do. 
Or what to say. Or how to feel. 
We often learn this harsh lesson 
OR our own only once we are fared 
with someone's death. We arc 
^iven no time to plan or prepan-. 
And unfortunatelv there is no wav 

to check for the right answers. In 
fact, when the question of dealing 
with the death of a loved one 
arises, there is no right answer. 

Twelve days have passed since 
the death of Joseph Hauck. And 
if you walk through campus 
today, there may be no obvious 
signs of the anguish which swept 
through here only days ago. You 
think to yourself, "Look at eve- 
ryone: have they forgotten what 
just happened ■* What is wrong 
with them? But then again — how 
come everyone else seems fine 
while lam apparently the only one 
whocan't stop thinking about it?" 

Then it hits: "What's wrong 
with me?" You try to figure out 
how you should be feeling based 
on how others appear to he feeling 
around you. In an effort to be 
normal, you often end up hiding 
how you truly feel. As a result of 
this attempt to act normal, you 
may ultimately feel very alone. 

The truth is that there is no set 
or "normal" way to deal with 
feelings of grief. However, there 
are many normal manifestations 
of grief that one may experience. 
Some common feelings include 
sadness, anger, guilt, anxiety, 
loneliness and fatigue. In addition, 
.normal behaviors stemming from 
grief include sleep disturbances, 
appetite disturbances, absent- 

Group recalls 
its guiding light 


SluJJ h'iporli r 

Capturing the essence of J(m' 
Hauck, the 1995 Orientation 
Counselor for Oroup 72, is a task 
seemingly impossible for words. 
What perfect words may be used 
to describe an individual as close 
to [)erfection as her' As we all 
know, there is no such thing as 
a iMrfect human Ix-ing; but to 
droup 7;^, J(X' was perfect. 

From the start, Joe welcomed us 
with open arms not only into 
Villanova, but more importantly, 
into his heart. His warm smile 
enabled us to feel as much a part 
of Villanova as anyone, and his 
overwhelming warmth convinced 
each one of us that he would he 
a hug<' i)art of our lives ;it Villan 
ova for the next tour vears. 

I ( ,111 still |)i( tore the lust five 
minutes (,niup 72 had been ga- 
thered id^'ether. Karh one of us 
(iis|)l,i\((l .1 scared and awkward 
nervousness whu h Joe easily 
changed He bounced all over the 
room sbaking everyone's hand 
with ,n! rat fii car smile on his 
t.K e, t iK'hl licforc he proudh 
|)oinle(l out the ItccI Flintstonr 
ligiitr he had drawn on the board 
that lie was so proud ot. 

The next three days were fill(>d 
with corny lokes Joe made up, 
games like Truey. ' and ( f -il 
lenges to every orientation group 
we passed of who could "get 
down" better One thing is for 
sure, there was n«'ver a dull 
moment with Joe Haiuk as oiir 
orien tat ion cou nselor 

We were always amused by 
Joe's tree spirit and livelih(M)d 
(iurmg orientation. Little did we 
know at the time how much more 
we were gaining 

During those three \fry short 
days, Joe not only allowed for us 
to feel more at home with Villan 
ova and each other, but more 
importantly with ourselves. He 
was always happy and always 
made more than enough time to 
talk to each of us. In getting to 
know Jot^ and the things he did, 
for example, how he c ailed every 
blue sky a "glorious day," and 
how every hug he gave us was a 
"warm and fuz/v" hirg, he pro 
vided a strong security we needed. 
As Freshmen, we were about to 
undergo a tremendous ( hange in 
our lives, and Joe underst(MKl us 
,it ;i time w hen we needed sonicone 
to I he most 

Jusi lisirning to J(H' remind us 
over and over to stop by his riKim 
to visit him. made us see through 
a complualed time in our h\es 
more easily It is all ot t liesc things 
that made |(M''s death so hard lo 
inulcrstand ,md so |)aiiiliil In i he 
luMit. vet we know that what Joe 
i^.nr to us IS neither of the two 

It IS true that tht're are no 
perfect words to describe Joe and 

what tie did for droup 72. How- 
ever, the sc( iintv. reassurance 
and e\erlasting memories he 
provided us with are the closest 
things to perfection Knowing 
that, J(M' Hauck will live on in 
Villanova's heart forever And 
esix'ciallv in the heart of droup 

minded behavior, social withdra 
wal, dreams of the deceased, 
avoiding reminders of the de 
ceased and searching/calling out 
for the deceased 

In recent days, many are expe- 
riencing these signs which are 
normally characteristic of the 
grieving process. Yet individuals 
may be afraid that this is inap 
propriate and therefore keep such 
(K'currences to themselves. 

"After all of the ceremonial 
ways we honor one's death are 
over. It appears that no one is 
thinking about it any longer," 
recognizes Dr. Joan Whitney, 
director of Villanova's Counseling 
Center. Whitney further emphas 
izes that although the initial 
shcK'k of death is difficult in itself. 
It can lead to a prolonged grief for 
many as well. 

"Death, in particular the death 
we have just experienced here at 
Villanova, often uncovers feelings 
about earlier deaths of friends or 
family members. It brings up 
unresolved issues that may stem 
from periods in a student's life 

before they even came to Villan 
ova, things that no one may even 
know about. This presents an 
additional hardship for many, 
many people." 

"In addition, it is natural for 
Joe's death to have caused per- 
sonal concern for those who may 
not have even known him; it 
reminds us of our own vulnera 
bility," she adds. 

In reference to coping with Joe's 
death, 1 myself told Whitney, "1 
don't know what to do, I'm not 
good at these things." Her re 
sponse was that none of us are. 
She is right. 

Aside from f)eing uncertain, the 
grieving prwess is a very personal 
issue. For some, feelings may have 
been healthily resolved in wha- 
tever ways necessary within the 
past 12 days. Rut if you are still 
going through such a process, 
know that you are not alone. 
There are others still coping that 
may not even show it. I am one 
of them. 

"The most important thing ior 
people to know is that no two 

[X'ople will deal with tieath tin 
same way," reminded Whitney 

"It is far better for those expe- 
riencinggrief to talk w ith someone 
than to hold it all inside. It could 
be a parent, friend, professor, 
priest, or a counselor, as long as 
they get it out," said Whitney. 

The Counseling Center wel 
comes any person who needs help 
or even just someone to talk to. 
Their office is located on the 
ground fhxir of Corr Hall. It is a 
free and confidential service to 
students. You may visit for only 
one session or routine visits, the 
choice is yours. 

While the tragedy of Joseph 
Hauck's death may still affect you 
for days and even months to come. 
It IS imp(jrtant that you do not let 
It consume you. Take the time and 
necessary steps you need to in 
order to cope with it in your own 
way. But always remember that 
each of us do have a life to go on 
living, and it is vital that we 
celebrate it. 

.After all, ^vouldn't JiX' want it 
that way'-" 


5;^ Be bold and courageous. When you look back on 
^ your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do 
^ more than the things you did.

In ifu' corning weeks, Alpha 
Delta Hi will become a familiar 
name to Villanova students. With 
a full scale campaign to vocalize 
their arrival, including posters, 
banners and dorm information 
sessions, this new sorority will be 
spreading the word to Villanova's 
women that there is a new and 
exciting opportunity facing them. 

"It is an exciting opportunity 
for women to be involved in," said 
Rebecca Gentry, the Alpha Delta 
Pi traveling chapter consultant. 
"It is an excellent opportunity for 
leadership, meeting other people 
and creating and shaping a group 
the way you want it to be." 

Alpha Delta Pi is unique be- 
cause it is said to be the first secret 
society for women on a college 
campus, according to Gentry. 
Since its start in 1851 it has grown 
to 434 ehftgtefs-wmt k'» \^^ 
colonization at^llanova. 

"This is a good opj)()rlunity for 
juniors and seniors whootherwise 
would not have a chance in formal 
rush. It is a chance for leadership 
for them and it is exciting," said 
Gary Bonas, director of Ix^ader 
ship Development. "We are ex 
pecting a nice turn out and 

It is an excellent 
opportunity for 
leadership, meeting 
other people, and 
creating and shaping a

"I'm excited that Alpha Delta

"Many women out there who 
are not in a sorority will like the 
opportunity to participate in an 
informal rush. This is much more

said Bonas. 

"We hope for at least 200 women 
to sign up for rush," said Gentry. 
The sorority wants to gain enough 
members to conduct a strong rush 
in the spring alongside the other

Apartment advisors to fi'Ho mom, who cAkhs 
enhance community life 


Slun lufKirtir 

This fall marks the second year 
ol housing fur upperclassmen in 
oncampus apartments. The be- 
ginning of the new semester has 
also marked the advent of a new 
role for Apartment Assistants 
(A.A.s) in the West Campus 

Instead of last year's system, 
which assigned one A. A. per 
building, the system will now call 
for four A.A.s in each of the 
apartment buildings. A.A.s must 
be on duty Thursdays through 
Saturdays, whereas other resi- 
dence halls on campus require a 
Resident Assistant (R.A.) in the 
building every night. 

The most significant difference 
from last year lies in the role of 
the A. A. on duty on Friday and 
Saturday nights. One A. A. per 
building must remain at the front 
dumX- 4n- ihe lohby of hi&/her 
buiMing, ^llile artOthef conduct? 
periodic rounds throughout two of 
the apartment facilities from 9 
a.m. to 3 a.m. The desk monitor 
is responsible for ensuring access 
to the building for all apartment 
residents, while requiring non 
residents of the apartments to call 
the room they are visiting for 
guest access to the building during 
duty hours. 

We wanted to conwey a 
presence in the 

"We wanted to convey a pres- 
ence in the buildings," said Res- 
idence Life West Area Coordinator 
I^onald Godwin. "The impetus 
was a lot of the vandalism that 
was occurring last year." Godwin 
cited potential problems with 
security last year as well, since 
unmonitored non-residents could 
easily enter the buildings at any 

Godwin also referred to a new 
practice of locking all exits in the 
apartments except for those in the 
main lobby from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. 
every night. He hopes this will 
further deter the vandalism and 
potential security problems which 
resulted from unlimited access to 
the buildings. 

"The big thing we're trying to 
emphasize is res[XHt for those 
who live around them. ' said Head 
Apartment Assistant Amy 
(iauntner. "They're allowed to 
have parties," she said, but she 
also explained that activity 
which proves disruptive toothers 
living in the apartments would be 
addressed. Twenty four-hour cour 
tesy hours are in effect daily. 

Andrea Pala, a junior scxiology 
major, is a first-year A. A. in 
Rudolph. She decided to apply for 
the position after already receiv 
ing a housing assignment in the 
apartments. "It sounded like a lot 
of fun," she said. "I want to make 
a difference." She alluded to 
tentative plans for i)r()grams for 
the West Campus residents, in 
eluding a [possible bartxHue, in an 
att(Mnpt to foster community. 

Gaunt ner also suggested iwssible 
outdoor Masses and other activ 
ities in conjunction with I lie 
Burns House 

The big thing we're 
trying to emphasize is 
respect for those who 
live around them. 

Mike Petriella, a junior pre-med 
major, is a first-year A. A. in 
Moulden. He too decided to apply 
for the position after having 
already received a housing assign- 
ment to the apartments. 

"During my past two years 1 
realized how much of an influence 
an R.A. can have on me," he said. 
He referred to the R.A. or A.A.s 
potential for both a positive and 
negative impact on others, and 
expressed his own desire to make 
a positive difference. 

He and the other .-^.A.s con 
ducted hall meetings during the 
first week of schtxjl to introduce 
their new role in the apartments. 
Gauntner found residents' reac 
tions to be mixed, but felt they 
at least appeared to understand 
the rationale for the desk monitor. 

Petriella described the new 
system as "saving the residents 
the headache of having to pay for 
the vandalism done by non 
apartment residents." He referred 
to living in the apartments as a 
■privilege," and expressed the 
intent of the A.A.'s to expect the 
same respect for the buildings 
that off-campus apartments ex- 
pect of their tenants. 

Petriella continued, "We hope 
that our increased presence in the 
West Campus apartments will 
serve as a stimulus for a respectful 
community, while promoting the 
responsible independence of the

Legends of the Grateful Dead live on 


StaJ) Kepurter 

On Aug. 9, 199S. the world 
suffered the loss of Jerry 
Garcia, the legendary musician 
who, along with the other 
members of the Grateful Dead, 
entertained fans for over 30 years. 

On the day of his death, several 
spontaneous candlelight vigils 
appeared all around the country 
as fans reflected on Garcia's and 
the Grateful Dead's influence over 
the past three decades. Some 
wonder why such a big deal was 
made about Garcia's death and 
the fact that there will no longer 
be Grateful Dead shows. Some 
might pass him off as just another 
rcnkn roller who abused his body 
i(xj much — Newsweek magazine 
quoted Rush Limbaugh referring 
to Garcia as just a "dead doper." 
In addition, many who are not 
familiar with the (irateful Dead 
scene may simply pass (iarcia off 
as the leader of a band that did 
not "stand for anything" and who 
promoted illegal drug use, reck- 
lessness and irresponsibility. The 
fact is that as an individual, 
Garcia was called by People mag- 
azine the "antithesis" of the 
stereotypical rock-n-roller: much 
of the time (including during 
concerts), he preferred not to 
conform to flashv fashion trends 

and chose to dress in more com 
fortable clothes like sneakers, 
jeans and t-shirts. In addition. 
People {K)ints out that he "giggled 
with childlike enthusiasm when 
he talked." More importantly, he 
was an accomplished musician 
and well-respected for his talents. 
In general, he was a person who 
just wanted to have a good time 
and do what he loved — making 

Several things made the Grate- 
ful Dead a special band that 
cannot be ignorantly referred to 
as a group that "stands for no- 
thing" and promotes illegal, un- 
healthy and irresponsible activity, 
(iarcia led a band that, amazingly, 
toured almost continuously for 
three decades, making every show 
unique by "exploring the realm of 
improvisational music," rTl^)tesone 
Villanova fan. 

The fact that the band was 
stunningly loyal to its fans dem- 
onstrates that it was not just 
made up of famous entertainers 
who relished the popularity of 
being in the limelight. This state- 
ment is supported by the work of 
Dr. Rebecca Adams, a sociologist 
at the University of North Carol- 
ina at Greensboro, who not long 
ago conducted research on the 
Grateful Dead community that 
was aired on public television 
stations. She also points out that 

the Grateful Dead was one ot the 
tew bands that allowed a certain 
number of fans to tape record 
shows in order to enjoy the music 
at their leisure and share it with 
other fans. In addition, fans who 
bought tickets through the special 
mail-order system (at no extra 
cost) set up by the (irateful Dead 
recenved along with their tickets 
a flyer listing hotels, campsites, 
restaurants, emergency numbers 
and other useful information 
pertaining to the area in which the 
concert was to be held. These 
facts alone demonstrate that the 
band at least sttxxl for loyalty and 
consideration to fans. 

What else did they stand for? 
What kind of behaviour was 
promoted at Grateful Dead shows? 
Adams observes that one impor- 
tant value found in the Grateful 
Dead community was generosity 
and sharing of resources among 
fans. For example, many fans 
came to shows without a ticket, 
hoping for a "miracle" (this word 
makes reference to one of the 
band's songs called "I Need A 
Miracle"), which is a ticket sold 
on the street at face value or less, 
or even for free. Some fans enjoy 
simply making someone else's day 
by being generous with these 
sought-after tickets instead of 
making a profit off of others by 
scalping them. With so many 

people following the band (for long 
or short periods of time), a com- 
munity inevitably formed and it 
was supported by the sharing 
relationship that developed among 
many of its members [the fans]. 

Finally, the most important 
thing supported by the Grateful 
Dead, according to Adams, was 
the importance of freedom of 
individual expression and encour- 
aged creativity. Freedom of ex- 
pression is important to the de- 
velopment of any kind of talent, 
be it music, other fine arts, 
writing or anything else that has 
boundaries to challenge. Jerry 

Garcia was not afraid to test out 
his creativity — in 1991 he and 
Merl Saunders, another accomp 
lished musician, put out an album 
called "Blues From the Rainfor- 
est." which explored the possibil- 
itiesof mixing sounds from nature 
with the sounds of the guitar and 

The fact th9t the Gmtef ul Dead^. 
and Jerry Garcia encouraged free 
dom of expression makes them 
unforgettable and very special, 
but at the same time, it draws 
criticisms. The band promoted 
freedom of expression, which

This past Wednesday night a 
handful of lucky Villanovans 
experienced the rythmic sound of 
Life in General. (Originating from 
Winstoh-Salem, N.C., this three- 
man-band, which has remained 
relatively unknown to most, is 
quite a pleasant surprise. 

Comprised of Jason l^evasseur. 
Shelly Sutton and Jerry Chapman, 
Life in (ieneral has been inevitably 
compared to the likes of Toad the 
Wet Sprocket and the Gin Blos- 
soms, both of which rank high on 
the popular college music scale. 
They cite their musical influences 
as everyone from Kiss and Prince 
to The Allman Brothers and 

Life in General incorporates a 
variety of sounds and musical 
instruments to add to their t y pical 

college music sound, most often 
described as "happy, aggressive, 
alternative folk pop." The bar

sounds, electric and accoustic 
guitar and of course, go(xl ole' 

whistling are what give Life in

Life in General have been tour-

campuses along the way. They 
have opened up for many great 
acts such as The Connells, The 
Judybats, Widespread Panic, 24 7 
Spyz and many more. Obviously 
these three talented lx)ys have had 
more than plenty of opportunities 
to show the east how they rock. 
"They sing and dance," Chapman 
stated, referring to their crowd.

Gun violence, teenage preg

Something sweet is 
coming to 'Nova 



Horos(ope (iurus 


Entertainment Editor 

AS I disappeared into the 
sunset last May, I left behind 
in this column the promise to 
bring bigger and better entertain 
ment bits to this little comer of 
the Viilanovan. So, through the 
long hot days of summer I read 
Liz Smith religiously, watched mv 
MTV, tuned into "Entertainment 
Tonight" and even perused the 
World Wide Web. Honestly, I was 
all set to wow Viilanovan readers 
with my newly discovered enter- 
tainment prowess when I re- 
turned to campus and saw a sign 
that changed everything. Out the 
window went all the new CDs, the 
Hugh Grant quips, the "Water- 
world" jokes and even the big 
news that channel 3 and channel 
10 are switching to CBS and NBC, 

lESpectiveiy^Thf sign, as ir hap- 

peneJd. hung rather unassumingly 
from that CAT sandwich board in 
the quad, sort of pushed to the 
lower right-hand corner in pretty 

unspectacular green marker. Like 
a gift from above the sign handed 
a great big entertainment feature 
right to me. The sign said "Mat- 
thew Sweet." Weil, ij said some 
other stuff too, but it was too 
small and difficult to read. How 
ever, upon further inquiry to 
friends I found my hunch to be 
true — Matthew Sweet will be 
playing at Villanova. 

After spending my first two 
years of college listening to my 
friends at other schools talk about 
bands like Blues Traveler and 
The Dave Matthews Band, just to 
name a few, playing their student 
centers and auditoriums, finally 
there comes a concert I can brag 
back about. 

I am, of couse, in no way im- 
plying that Villanova does not 
bring in more than its share of 
quality lesser known and un- 
signed bands. I do. however, feel 
the time has come for Villanova 
spo n s or -ji c o n c « rt ^-ft{ gr e at t^ r 
magnitude that students of var- 
ious musical tastes can truly sink 
their teeth into, so to speak. 
Matthew Sweet is just the man 

for this job. While most are 
familiar with his MTV alternative 
favorite, "Girlfriend" and the 
recent radio standards, "Sick of 
Myself" and "We're the Same," 
these are but a meager sampling 
of the sounds that span Matthew's 
spectacular six album career. 

Sweet has always met with a 
great deal of critical acclaim from 
Inside to Son of Altered Beast, but 
many are calling 100% Fun his 
best work to date. This praise can 
probably be attributed to the 
masterful handling of an array of 
musical styles that come together 
on this album. With his trademark 
vocal harmonies intact, Sweet 
effortlessly slides from garage 
rock to psychedelia to balladry. 

After spending the summer on 
the road with such bands as Soul 
Asylum, The Jayhawks and Vic- 
toria Williams, Sweet's live per- 
formances have received the same 
accolades as his recorded work. .So, 
-how will he respond "to^ the ought" 
lights and big pressures of head- 
lining a Thursday night at Jake 
Nevin? Stay tuned to this corner 
of the Viilanovan to find out. 

Flashback: Summer 1995 


Entertainment Editor 

It dawned on me while shopping 
for groceries this last weekend 
that summer was over. The rea- 
son: there was a large carton of 
pumpkins outside for 25 cents a 
pound rather than the usual ears 
of corn. Yes. last weekend was the 
unofficial end of summer. Good- 
bye barbecues, mosquito bites, 
scrubbing toilets (I was a cham- 
bermaid over the summer). There 
is nothing left to do now except 
store all my white articles of 
clothing in the closet until Memor- 
ial Day as the fasion police dictate. 

Soon the brisk autumn wind 
will slap my face as I make my 
way across campus with infected 
sinuses due to the change of the 
season. Nevertheless, before I bid 
a sad farewell to the days of 
summer, I shall take one last look 
at the memorable events which 
colored it. 

Normally the summer months 
mean endless repeats of the fall 
shows. This summer, however, 
television viewers were kept en- 
tertained by the OJ. Simpson 
trial. Who needs "LA. Uw" when 
the real thing is on CNN at all 
hours. For those who were follow- 
ing the trial over the summer and 
are now upset about missing parts 
of it due to time spent in class do 

not worry. It is sure to be going 
• on into the next summer and the 
next and the next. Like the Dura- 
cell bunny it just keeps on going. 

When OJ. got too boring for 
even the die-hards thank goodness 
there was always the Hugh Grant 
scandal to liven up an evening of 
tube watching. Too bad watching 
was not all Hugh was doing with 
Ms. Brown. I guess it could have 
been worse. He could have gotten 
"Nine Months" for pleading no 
contest to the lewd conduct 
charge. At least Jay Leno could 
finally draw an audience for the 
"Tonight Show" when Grant ap- 
peared to discuss the situation. I 
guess people prefer watching 
Grant on the hot seat rather than 
the dancing Itos. 

"Prime Time Live" also had its 
day in the sun when it ran Diane 
Sawyer's interview with the grue- 
some twosome. Michael Jackson 
and Lisa Marie on June 14. While 
watching the interview I began to 
wonder if Jacko ever left his 
Neverland estate because maybe 
if he did he would realize the '80s 
are over. Looks like HIStory is 
going to be just that very soon 
with the music buying public. 

Speaking of music. . . it looks 
like Blues Traveler has hit it big 
this summer. Of course I am sure 
many of us are not surprised by 
this. The Dave Matthews Band 

likewise is receiving tons ot air- 
play. What is it with these 
H.O.R.D.E. veterans? Lets just 
hope the radio DJs do not kill 
another good group with the 
dreaded overplaying of one song. 
I am sad to say the Ramones. the 
forefathers of punk, have released 
their last album and will be 
disbanding after touring. Ironi- 
cally, their final album is called 
Adios Amigos. 

As always, the summer offered 
its usual plethora of movies. 
Audiences could cool off in theat- 
ers and enjoy a tub of corn while 
watching the new Batman soar 
with his partner Robin. "Pocha- 
hontas" and the "Power Rangers" 
morphed the younger set while 
"Clueless" will probably become 
a cult favorite with the pre-teens 
and teens. I guess every genera 
tion has to have their own "Break 
fast Club." "Babe, The Gallant 
Pig" probably fared better than 
"Waterworld" in the theaters 
which goes to prove anyone or 
anything can out act Kevin 
Costner. The producers of "Wa 
terflop" should have cast the pig. 
it would have cost less. 

Last but not least we saw 
Superman hurt badly in a horse 
back riding accident and the death 
of the Grateful Dead's front man, 
Jerry Garcia. Farewell Captain 
Trips. You will be sorely missed. 

Jerry Garcia 

(Continued from page 18) 
some of the band members them 
selves as well as fans chose to 
accomplish through using illegal 
drugs or other substances or by 
choosing a certain lifestyle, 
healthy or unhealthy. Some as 
pects of the lifestyle that Jerry 
Garcia chose to follow, for exam 
pie his substance abuse, took their 
toll on his body and eventually led 
to his death. According to Adams' 
study, freedom of expression 
among Grateful Dead fans is 
encouraged within the limits of 
personal responsibility and step 

ping on the rights of others is not 
acceptable behavior. This is not 
to say that all fans have acted in 
a positive way — in recent years 
and especially during the summer 
of 1995, the amount of violence at 
shows increased. Adams believes 
it may be because of the enormous 
increase of new fans after the 
chart hitting success of the song 
"Touch of Grey" from their 1987 
album, that perhaps too many 
people had entered the Grateful 
Dead community and did not fully 
understand what it stood for. The 

receni violence may also have 
been the result of a mix of influ 
ences, perhaps including that of 
an increasingly violent society. 
In any case, the effect of Jerry 
Garcia and the Grateful Dead's 
music surely will not fade away 
with his death, whether p)eople 
considered it positive or negative. 
If one listens to the music, many 
of the songs are about human life 
exp)eriences — each person can 
choose to hear the songs in his or 
her own way and reflect upon 
them, long after the music ends 

Aquarius: Walk on the wild side this weekend and take up a new 
hobby like stamp collecting. It will provide hours of amusement and 
allow you to go to the post office much more than you used to. Just 
remember before you enter to put on your bulletproof vest. Who knows 
when an irate postal worker will break loose? 

Pisces: Utilize that green thumb of yours and plant a tree on 
Wednesday. Oh no, not again. . . THE VOICES. . . they never stop. 
No, no, I won't do it. Don't make me do it. . . the orange you eat for 
breakfast will give you psychic powers. Go with the flow of things 
for the rest of the week. 

Aries: You finally find the perfect career path on Sunday. You decide 
your talents are directing you to become a mime. Cease speaking that 
instant and communicate by doing things like swimming in an ocean 
without water. Things are peachy until you suffer a bout of 
claustrophobia in an invisible shrinking box. 

Taurus: Your Rice Krispies start having philosophical conversations 
with you instead of doing the usual "Snap, Crackle. Pop" thing. 
Together you dissect the greats like Plato and try to answer the 
Hinan s wc F able. For mstanee. how c^n M&Ms look so happy en 
coMhie'rcial^? Don't Ihey" know 'they are going to be eaten? 'Is this 
some type of conspiracy? 

Cancer: The stars are so out of line for you this week we did not 
want to be cruel by telling you what is in store for you. 

Gemini: You will try out to be the plaid power ranger for the next 
Power Ranger movie. Fame, power and the love of children under 
12 will be yours. 

Leo: To stay focused this academic year, the Leo must set some goals. 
In the spirit of the great Cal Ripken Jr., try to break your old re<-ord 
of making it to your 8:30 a.m. classes over two times in thf same 
week. Kick that nasty habit of growling obscenities at everyone you 
pass on campus and replace \l with a b\g cheeriu\ "Howdy doo!" Lather. 
Rinse. Repeat. 

Virgo: It is never too early to begin preparing for finals! While the 
weather is still warm, throw off the shackles of that $2(X) J. Crew 
ensemble you are sporting and sprint au natural through the quad 
Picture the throngs of students as angry public safety officers and 
practice your sneaky pivots and spin moves around them as you run 
past. Wednesday will be best spent drinking Fresca and compiling 
all the different ways you have heard people pronounce "Sartre" and 
"Nietzsche" since you have btn^n in college into a handy pamphlet. 

Libra: While gawking admirably at the new campus map outside 
of Dougherty on Thursday, you will be overcome by the urge to draw 
a little stick figure of yourself hanging out of your dorm window 
Resist this temptation of childish hijinx and instead draw big alien 
spaceships landing on the r(K)f of F'alvey, your Libra creativity will 
be widely acknowledged. Read the fine print on advertisements for 
Rc^aine just to be on the safe side. 

Scorpio: Another year, another chance to meet that sptn lal someone! 
Join an organization on campus which will help you to find someone 
who shares your interests. If this does not work, set giant camouflage 
'■emote controlled bear traps outside your dorm window, when you 
see someone who looks good — bam, let er rip! 

vSagittarius: These first two weeks of school have truly been dragging 
for you, It IS time to take some initiative and liven things up a bit. 
Avoid the usual haunts this weekend, gather your closest comrades, 
stay home and watch those 4 a.m. reruns of "Northern Exposure." 
Engage in toughtful discourse about the deeper meaning behind 
Maggie's varying hairlengths and drink every time you stn- someone 
wearing wool. On Tuesday devote your day to appreciating the subtle 
charms of Daisy Fuentes. 

Capricorn: Since the rings of sat urn have been slightly adjacent to 
your star sign for most of the summer, it is obvious that you are 
to blame for the current drought. This explains the looks of disgust 
from friends and strangers alike upon your arrival back to sch(X)l. 
As Capricorns are normally known as a likeable bunch, put in a serious 
effort to reestablish your acceptance — on Friday night, invite the 
entire Main Line to your place for a big group shower with loofahs 
for everyone.

Athletic department welcomes director, coaches 

-bi ~»C -V -^ 


>,laJJ Ri'purter 

I he \'illan()\a Athlctu- ncparl 
mciit IS cxcilcd to annoiuui' tour 
additions T(j iht^ stall . Three ol 
llu-rii will fill coaching vacancies 
and new associate athletic director 
of Media Relations, Karen Fras 
cona, filled the Media Relations 
vacancy left by the resignation of 
Jim DeLx)renzo, PVascona, a famil 
iar face around Villanova, returns 
to her alma mater to handle all 
media relations and publicity 
efforts of the Wildcat Athletic 

"This job for me is like a dream 
come true," said Frascona. "I look 
at it as an incredible opportunity. 
I am very thankful to Athletic 
Director GeneDeFilippo for giving 
me this chance to prove myself at 
this point in my career." 

Frascona graduated fron\ Vil 
lanova in 1989, with a Bachelor 
of Arts in Communications. 
Franscona moved on to the Uni- 
versity of (ieorgia and then to 
Auburn University, where she 
served as the Associate Sports 
Information Director. The past 
t wo years, Frascona worked at the 
..South. Eastern Conference's Offi- 
ces',- cverftually' becoming' The 
Director of Media Services. Last 
year, she served as the SEC's 
primary basketball media rela- 
tions contact, and the day to day 
contact for SEC Football. 

"Working at the Conference 
(SEC) Offices was an incredible 
learning experience for me," said 

Frascona. "I learned to see the big 
picture, and to see the changes 
and Irendsof College Athletics. At 
Villanova. 1 hoix" to combine my 
exixTieiueat the Confcn-nte level 
and do the best [possible job I can 

The other three additions to the 
Villanova Athletic Department 
come in the coaching ranks with 
field hockey, ice hockey, and 
women's lacrosse all naming new 
head coaches. Joanie Milhous was 
named the head coach of the field 
hockey team, a team that went 6- 
11 in the Big East last season. 
Milhous, a graduate of William 
and Mary, was a standout in her 
playing days for the Tribe, as she 
was named a two-time regional 
Ail-American and a two-time All- 
Conference selection. Milhous 
comes to Villanova after spending 
four years as the head coach at 
Cabrini College, where she was 
named 1994 PAC Coach of the 
Year. She is pleased to inherit a 
' Wildcat team which returns 22 
lettermen, including nine starters 
from a year ago. 

"1 think the experience that we 
gaineed last year will be beneficial 
to us in the upcoming sea.son," 
Milhous said. "I expect our offense 
to be' dfastic^lly ifRpro^efl ovpt 
last year." 

The most likely candidates to 
lead the way to an improved 
offense are senior Teri Galanti, 
juniors Jill Basile and Cherilyn 
Sackal, as well as sophomore 
Jacquie Fulginiti. 

Todd Sharinn will succeed Pat 

Ferill, who resigned last spring 
after four seasons as the Icecats 
head coach. Sharinn, a 1987 
graduate of Boston University, 
conies to Villanova with a diverse 
luxkey background. Last year, he 
served as an assistant coach of 
Yale University's women's ice 
htKkey team. Sharinn also served 
as both assistant coach for the 
Omaha Lancers of the USHL 
Junior A league and head coach 
of the Omaha (iladiators of the 
Iowa High School Hockey League. 
In taking over at the helm for the 
Icecats, Sharinn's primary goal is

The Villanova women's tennis 
team will have a fresh new l(K)k 
for the start of its 199,S season. 
After coaching the men's program 
lor the past two years, Coach Bob 
Batman will be in the driver's .scat 
for the women's team as well. 
Batman has coached in estab 
lished tennis facilities in Califor 
nia as well as Germany, and has 
led his former team at the IJni 
versify of the Kedlands, California 
to a Division III national cham 
pionship. During his two seasons 
with 'Nova's men's team, he has 
racked up an impressive 28-9 
record, and now hopes to improve 
on his winning record with the 
women's team. 

Along with Coach Batman will

Big East finish from last season. 

As the lone senior on the squad, 
Tina P'lore will be l(K)ked upon for 
motivation and leadership 
throughout the season. As a 
singles i^layer last season, the 
Scarsdale. New York native went 
7-8 in five different positions for 
the Cats, and was named to the 
1994-9r) Big East Conference Aca 
demic All Star Team. 

Other la^y contributors to this 
year's s()uad will be juniors Chris 
tina drasso and Erin O'Shea. No 
stranger to the Wildcat lineup, 
(irasso rounded out last year's 
regular season with a 3-3 record, 
and went 2 1 in Big East Tour 
nament play. As a first year player 
in 1993, she compiled a fil singles 
record playing at the No. .S and 
No. (i singles positions. In doubles 
action, she teamed with recent 
graduate Tiffany Geiser to pro 
duce a 4 2 overall record. 

Though O'Shea saw limited on 
court action last season, she 
rounded out last year's campaign 
with an overall .3-4 record. This 
season, she will be seeing more 
I)laving time in various |X)sitions 
throughout the lineup, hoping to 

improve on her record of a year 

Sophomore Meg Daniels was a 
key contributor to last year's 
squad and will be doing the same 
for this season. Though she was 
sidelined for some part of the 
season, she pulled off a solid 
r(K)kie cam|)aign, ending with an 
8-(i ri'cord. 

Teamed with O'Shea at the Big 
East Tournament last year, so 
phomore Jen Grant is Icjoking to 
break into the Wildcat lineup this 
season as a major contributor. She 
went 4 7 as a first year player and 
is looking to be a fierce competitor 
for the upcoming season. 

Along with coach Batman, a trio 
of fresh new faces will grace the 
tennis courts this season. First 
year athletes Gina Renzelli, Julie 
Bonner, and Dorothy Bellock will 
be setting their sights on the 
lineup. With the loss of three 
seniors from a year ago, these 
three lould see some playing time

Cal Ripken steps a step above modern athletes 


Sports Editor 

As he approached and event u 
ally surpassed Lou Gehrig's re 
niarkabk' consecutive game re 
cord, Ripken solidified himself as 
a true American champion who 
stands a step above the rest of pro 
athletes. With the incertitude 
surrounding baseball's future, the 
gray haired shortstop has become 
a beacon of hope, and never has 
he shined brighter. 

He has neither decried nor 
celebrated the attention that has 
hounded him for the past several 
years, accepting it as part of his 
job. He spends countless hours 
with the media and fans. It has 
become a common practice for 
Ripken to remain perched near the 
dugout, signing autographs for up 
to three hours after a game — all 
in the midst of the most impres- 
sive display of athletic endurance. 

During the streak, Ripken has 
had 29 different double play 
partners, other teams have used 
522 different starting shortstops, 
and other major league baseball 
players have gone on the disabled 
list 3,708 times. 

When his younger teammates 
go to bed, Ripken lingers around 
to chat with fans. He says it helps 
"him "unwind." He neveV fnMe's 
batting or fielding practice and 
rarely leaves a game early. In fact, 
for almost a six-year stretch, 
Ripken played every inning of 
every game. 

While he has always been active 
in kxal charities, he has used his 

unique accomplishment to raise 
awareness — and money — for 
combatting Amyotrophic Lateral 
Sclerosis, the disease that ended 
(iehrig's life at age 37. For his 
record-breaking game, extra seats 
at Camden Yards were sold for 
$5,000 each to collect money for 
ALS research. 

But Cal Ripken's quest did not 
exist without its detractors. Whe 
never he struggled at the plate, 
critics said he was hurting the 
team, never mind that a slumping 
Ripken is better than anyone else 
the Orioles could have put on the 
field. Recently, one columnist 
characterized Ripken as 

Indeed, the New York Times 
s^w it fit to print an article by 
Robert Lipsyte who asserted that 
"if Cal Ripken Jr. has any class. . . 
he will take a day off." He says 
that such an action would win 
Ripken even greater accolades. 
Lipsyte goes on to ask, "Why 
would anyone want to replace Lou 
Gehrig, our last clean hero?" 

What Lipsyte fails to recognize 
is that Ripken is not searching for 
accolades. Furthermore, Ripken is 
not attempting to "replace" 
anyone and spends interview 
after interview praising Gehrig 
and pointing out that Gehrig was 
a muth better offensive player 
than he could ever be. 

Ripken never mentions that he 
plays more night games than 
Gehrig, that he plays games on 
AstroTurf, that he plays a more 
demanding position in the field. 
None of that debate is important 

X-Country's teams 
to remain strong 


Assistant Sports Kditor 

Second year cross-country Head 
Coach John Marshall has two 
different tasks to accomplish with 
his men's and women's cross 
country teams. On the women's 
side he must replace three top 
runners with young talent, while 
on the men's side the task is to 
sustain the success of last year 
with veteran talent. 

Graduating three of the five 
scorers from last year's national 
championship team, the 1995 
women's squad must combine 
talented freshman with a small 
group of upperclassmen if they 
wish to repeat for an unprece- 
dented seventh straight time. 

Leading the charge will be 
senior Jen Rhines, who established 
herself as the premier collegiate 
distance runner by capturing the 
NCAA individual title Jast year 
If Rhines repeats the feat this 
year, she will join Sonia O'Sulli 
van and Carole Zajac as the only 
women in Villanova history to win 
back to back NCAA cross-country 

The other returning scorer 
from last year's championship 
team is junior Krestena Sullivan. 
After st ruggling as a freshman the 
Kitchener, Ontario native had a 
strong sophomore year, finishing 
21st in the nationals. This year 
Sullivan will fill the Wildcats' No 
2 spot 

Running in the third spot will 
Ix- senior Stacy Robinson. Robin 
son was Villanova's sixth finisher 
in the NCAA Championships, 
jumping almost 100 spots from 
her sophomore year to finish fi9th 
overall in her junior campaign. 
Mor'' improvement is counted on 
from Robinson in order for the 
Cats to succeed this year. 

Others who will tn' l(K)ked uix)n 
t(» < ontribiite to the team will Ix^ 
sophomores Ryan Startwell and 

Julia Brys as well as freshmen 
KatheT^ne Kelly, Sarah Brandy, 
Kristine Jost and Carrie 

"This year's team will be car- 
ried by the upperclassmen, but 
supported by the freshman," said 

The story in the men's camp is 
quite different. With seven expe- 
rienced runners returning, the 
Wildcats are hoping to repeat last 
year's surprising ninth place 
finish in the NCAA champ 

Villanova's tandem of Louie 
Quintana and Ken Nason led the 
pack last season, but this year 
Nason will have to do it on his 
own as Quintana has used his four 
years of cross-country eligibility. 
However, the fifth year senior 
from Cork, Ireland, appears to be 
ready for the challenge. Nason had 
a consistently strong year last 
season, finishing sixth in the Big 
East Championship, 11th in the 
IC4A Championships and 14th in 
the NCAA championships, earn 
ing him All American honors. 
This same effort is expected of 
him this year. 

Right behind Nason are seniors 
Kevin Christiani and Todd 
Tressler. Christiani improved 
tremendously during the indoor 
and outdoor track seasons, beating 
his personal best in the mile while 
qualifying for the NCAA Outdoor 
Championships in the 1500m. He 
will undoubtedly be hwked upon 
for tbis type of effort in the cross 
country season as well. T(xld 
Tressler scored in all six cross 
country met^ts last year, and with 
continued consistent effort he will 
become a vital ingredient to the 
team's success. 

The final three seniors who will 
Ix' looked ufX)n to contribute are 
Steve Mazur, Stephen Howard 
and David Seung. Mazur scored 
in three meets last year while 
Howard, of Sheffield. Fngland,

to Ripken. He is content to be his 
own player, to count his g(K)d 
fortunes, to praise his predeces 
sors, and to be the role mcxlel that 
kids so desperately need. 

Ripken's streak started at third 
base in 1982. After 27 games, he 
was switched to shortstop. With 
untold hours of practice and a 
meticulous study of each batter, 
he eventually emerged as the most 
fundamentally sound fielder in all 
of baseball. He set a record for 
consecutive games without an 
error for a shortstop and has won 
two Gold Gloves. 

He was named Rookie of the 
Year in 1982 and has twice since 
been named Most Valuable Player 
(1983 and 1991). He is a 13-time 
All Star and holds the record for 
career home runs by a shortstop. 

But statistics and awards tell 
only half the story. Ripken's true 
greatness comes from within. He 
connects to fans in such a manner 
that has made him the most 
popular player in the sport. Quite 
possibly, this is simply a result 
from the attitude demonstrated in 
his modest observation: "Focus on 
the beauty of the game, regardless 
of its participants. If this accomp- 
lishment is good for baseball, 
good. But baseball players pass 
through,, Whiat remains is the 
game's beauty." 

He remains, amidst all the 
delirium, a true fan of baseball. 
And baseball fans love him be- 
cause of it. 

This summer, I saw Ripken 
play six times between the cities 
of Baltimore, New York and Bos- 

ton In each city, he received a 
standing ovation as he was able 
to transcend division rivalries. 

But it's not just fans who praise 
the man. His opponents on the 
field jump at the opportunity to 
talk about Ripken. Perhaps they 
can appreciate the true magnitude 
of what he has accomplished. 
Frank Thomas is now second on 
the active consecutive trames list 

and trails Ripken by 1,8% games. 

The streak helped to highlight 
the man tx'hind the feat. He is a 
family man, a loyal employee and 
a consummate competitor. 

"I want to be satisfied with my 
effort," he remarked recently.

needed a hero, Cal Ripken was

After another successful season 
at the helm. Head Coach Ron 
Twomey's expectations are higher 
then ever for his women's volley- 
ball squad. Entering his fourth 
season as the head coach of the 
Cats, Twomey is looking to con- 
tinue the team's success. (Two- 
mey has led the Wildcats to a 60- 
38 record in his first three years.) 

Last year, Villanova posted a 1 9- 
12 record, although they were 
only 2-6 in the Big East, finishing 
seventh. Coming into this season, 
Twomey has assembled a solid 
squad as a result of three consec 
utive outstanding recruiting 

Twomey is excited with this 
year's talented group. However, 
the team still must proceed with 
caution into the season. The Cats 
have to be alert of the difficult 
early schedule that lies ahead. 
They will face the likes of Okia 
homa, Maryland and William «& 
Mary. Also, the Cats will try to 
improve on their seventh place 
finish in the Big East as the^' will 
go up against perennial power- 
houses Pittsburgh, Connecticut, 
as well as Notre Dame, a newco- 
mer to the league. 

"If we can get through the 
September schedule with our 
confidence intact, and our fresh 
men can make the transition to 
collegiate volleyball like I think 
they will, we may have a great 
season, " said Twomey 

Stacy Evans, a young and 
talented sophomore, will \w the 
cornerstone for this year's team, 
playing at the middle blocker slot 
Evans was named RfK»kie of the 
Year in the Big East last year as 
well as being named to the All 
Conference First Team. Besides 
earning these accolades, she 
set freshmen records at Villanova 
for kills in a season (486k blcx:k'> 
<67), and block assists (9.'^). Furth 

ermore, she was ranked 16th 
nationally with a hitting percen- 
tage of .376. 

The other middle blocker slot 
will be occupied by another sopho- 
more, Marisa Davidson. Like 
Evans, Davidson had a solid 
freshmen season as she was 
second to Evans in hitting percen 
tage (.34,S), and blocks (12BS/ 

A starter for the past two years, 
senior Cari Clawson will be looked 
to by the young Cats for her 
experience and leadership. As the 
primary setter, she totaled 1,260 
assists, 43 aces, and 277 digs. 

"We are counting on Cari to be 
a leader for this team. The expe- 
rience that she has gained the past 
three years should really help our 
team this season," said Twomey. 

The most difficult positions to 
fill on this team will be the outside 
hitters, as there will be heavy 
competition for playing time at 
these positions. Junior Debbie 
Picco and sophomores Kara Meier 
and Kris Tomasovic will battle for 

Highly recruited Meg O'Brien

high school, will contribute to the 
team. The rest of the squad will

New intramural director to restructure program 


Spurts Editor 

It there is one thing that Vil 
lanova's intramural program has 
lacked in the past few years, it 
is stability. Without it, there have 
been no substantive changes 
made and no authority to which 
the students could direct their 
questions and suggestions. Basi 
cally, chaos has been the rule 
rather than the exception. How 
does Villanova spell stability? 
Justin Sell. 

The new director of intramurals 
brings to the university a genuine 
desire to improve the program, 
bolstered by a wealth of expe- 
rience in the field as a student, 
employee, and participant. With 
a masters degree in Sports Admin 
istration from Ohio State and 
undergraduate experience gained 
from Bowling (ireen, Sell says he 
can apply his knowledge of the 
two schools' popular programs to 
our own. 

"My basic philosophy is to take 
a lot of ideas between those two 
places and experience in the past 
and scale them down to Villanova 
University," Sell said. 

Sell's immediate goals are to 
improve the program's organiza- 

tion and communication, made 
possible by the University finally 
stabilizing the position Justin 
began (Kcupying in June. 

"My role is to be someone who 
can come in and organize intram 
urals, set it up so that it is student 
friendly," Sell said. "The prob 
lems in the past stemmed from the 
fact that people weren't here long 
enough to make major changes." 

One way Sell says the program 
will become better organized 
under his direction is through 
bolstering Communication be 
tween his office and the student 
b(xly. This will ocxur in two ways, 
one of which is a new intramural 
hotline. By calling .^)H1-CATS, 
students can keep informed of 
schedule changes and rainouts. 
Communication can also be im 
proved. Sell says, if students give 
the office much needed input. 

"We want the students to com- 
municate back to the office," Sell 
said. "We will listen." 

Specifically, Sell and his two 
commissioners are looking for 
ideas from students on not only 
how to improve existing sports, 
but for ideas on new sports. 

"We're already talking about 
floor hockey and ultimate frisbee," 
Sell said. "We're trying to gauge 
student interest." 


Sophomore Jacquie Fulginiti will supply much of the offense for the 
Wildcats this year. The Cats were only able to muster 12 goals in 
1 7 frames last year.

Other organizational changes 
that will be implemented include 
a forfeit fee and sp(jrtsmanship 
evaluations. The forfeit fee, which 
is essentially a $10 de^josit, is to 
Ix' collected from team captains 
and then handed in with rosters. 

"If you don't forfeit during the 
season you get it back," Sell said 
"The goal is not to punish but to 
increase participation." 

The other pressing issue is 
sportsmanship. In the interest of 
striking a balance between com 
[X'titiveness and fun, each team 
will receive a rating. These ratings 
will factor into whether teams 
will make the playoffs or not. 

"Sportsmanship has been 

here," Sell said, "but we are 
evaluating it this year. We don't 
want to take emotions out, but if 
you are going to start a fight or 
'put it in somefKxiy's face,' we're 
going to keep track of that." 

Sell says the ratings should 
have more proactive than punitive 
implications anyway 

"When people know they are 
being evaluated ahead of time, 
problems will be avoided, " Sell

Coach of the Year for her efforts 
at Cabrini College. 

In addition to Milhous' arrival, 
the teaam returns 22 lettermen 
from last season, nine of whom 
were starters on last year's team. 
Most of the team's defense, which 
allowed only 23 goals in 17 games 
last year, is back as well. There 
are definitely reasons to believe 
that the team can improve on last 
year's fill finish (14 Big East/ 

"I think the experience that we 
gained last year will be beneficial 
to us in the ujxoming season." 
Milhous said. 

She has had enough success in 
the game to know. 

She was a two-time Regional 
All-American and a two-time All 
Conference selection while com 
peting at William and Mary. She 
also excelled in lacrosse while 
serving as team captain. She was 
named All-Conference and se 
lected to play in the Senior All 
Star game in both sports. Before 
coaching at Cabrini, she was 
assistant lacrosse coach at Har- 

riton High School. 

Milhous will be blessed with the 
return of an experienced defense 
to lead the team into the season. 
Senior Gretchen Schmid has 
enjoyed steady improvement over 
the last four years. She worked 
her way up to a starting position 
last season after developing her 
freshman and sophomore years. 
In addition to Schmid, the defense 
returns Courtney Moyer, Andrea 
Ruma and Michelle Rosetti. All 
three saw significant playing time 
last season. 

"I expect our offense to be 
drastically improved over last 
year," Milhous said. - 

/ think the experience 
that we gained last year 
will be beneficial to us. 

Head Coach Joania MMhous 

The offense could only come up 
with 12 goals in its 17 regular 
season games last year. 

The offense this year will be led 
by senior Teri (ialanti, juniors Jill 
Basile, Nina Berrettini and Che 
rilyn Sackal, and sophomore Jac- 
quie Fulginiti. 

(ialanti has started all 57 games 
in her college career and could be 
the catalyst for the offense. Basile 
was Second Team Big Kast and 
the team's second leading scorer 
last year. She netted one goal and 
rang up four assists for a total of 
SIX points. 

Sackal, a speed merchant out of 

significant lime as a freshman, 
Hempfield High School, started 
every game last year and saw 
starting nine games. F"ulginiti 
started every game but one last 
year, while Berrettini's strong 
work ethic will help the team's 
younger members develop. 

Midfield should be the strong 
p<jint of the team this year. Senior 
Kristen Hurt, Second-Team All 
Big East last year, returns along 
with juniors Allison Parks, Me- 
lissa At well and Rachel Hale. Hurt 
has started every game the last 
two years and should be a force, 
while all three juniors bring a lot 
of experience to a young squad. 

Goallending wiU be a big ques- 
tion mark for the team this season. 
Both of last year's goalies have 
graduated. The team's fortunes in 
oal rest upon super-freshman 
arnh Wiggins. 

The team will be going into the 
season with a lot of uncertainty, 
but there are many reasons to be 
optimistic. It should definitely 
improve upon last year. The Cats 
will have to do this despite a very 
lough schedule including games 
against traditional powerhouses 
Duke, Old Dominion, Virginia and 
William and Mary, in addition to 
thei- regular Big East foes. 

If Milhous' coaching, the ini 
I)roving offense, and thegoaltend- 
ing.ill tall inldplace, then the Cats 
could be a force to be reckoned 
with this year. They begin play 
at home against Ohio Stale Sept.

Kerry Kittles and Jason Lawson 
helped the United States [X)wer its 
way to a gold medal in the 1995 
World University (iames in Japan. 
The U.S. team showed that it was 
in a class by itself as it defeated 
Russia 11.5 48 in the opener The 
team then cruised through the 
rest of the pool, finishing 7(» to 
retain the. gold medal f(»r the 
fourth consecutive year. 

In the gold medal game, the 
United States scored H2 i)oints m 
the second half en touic i(» a 
decisive 141 HI victory over Japan 
Japan held tough for the first 
several minutes, hut the sheer 
force of the USA stpiad over 
whelmed the host country as the 
United States out-rebounded them 
48-18. The US also capitalized on 
a plentitud(> of easy shots as the 
squad shot 76 |)ercent from two 
point range 

Kittles s( (ited 1,"! iHiints in tht 
I hampionship, placing him U'liiiui 
Allen Iverson (26 pts i. Kay Allen 
(18 pts.) and Charles O'Bannon 
(15 pts.). 

"We worked hard," said Kittles. 
"Everyone on our team had it in 
their minds what we wanted to 
do going into the game." 

Lawson played only 13 minutes 
in the title game, but went 3-for- 
.3 from the fl(X)r and 2 for-2 from 
the lin<' for eight fK)ints. 

"It was a privilege and an honor 
to play with these great group of 
guys," said Lawson. "It was just 
a real g(x>d experience for me." 

Japan's Makoto Hasegawa was 
electrifying in defeat as he came 
off the bench to nail 5 of-5 three- 
point shots and finish with 25 
points in only 22 minutes. 

In addition to its wins over 
Russia and Ja})an, the U.S. also 
beat Great Britain (95-59), Brazil 
(118-75). Lithuania (105-81), the 
Czech Republic (77 62) and Can-

the game within eight points 
before Kittles nailed thre<' consec- 
utive three jx)int shots. He fin 
ished with a game high 20 ixnnts 
on 8 for Li shcxiting (including 4 
for 7 from behind the three point 

arc). He also tallied five rebounds, 
two assists and a steal. 

"I've been working on my three

my role on this team," Kittles said . 
after the game. 

Kittles put in 20 {X)ints against 
Canada as well. For the seven 
games. Kittles shot 51 p<'rcent. 
including 37 percent from three

shot two foul shots during the 
entire tournament. He averaged 
14.4 ix)int per game and recorded 
18 steals. 

Lawson served mainly as a 
substitute for Tim Duncan, aver-

Sfwrls h.ditoi 

Hosioii rni\trsi!v. the Yankee 
Conterence champion ot 199.'5, will 
l)e greeted tonight by a Wildcat 
->quad eager to erase the memorv 
ot back-to-back disappoini ing 
seasons. The leani \>.iil .dso be 
an.Kious Kjgive Head Loach .Andv 
Talley (65-38-1 i the Villanova 
retord lor career loot ball wins. 

In 1992, Villanova was recog- 
nized as the top Division I-AA 
team in the East, but a combined 
8-14 record over the i)ast two 
seasons has left the Wildcats 
searching for answers. Quite 
IXissibly, 1995 will provide the 
platform for Villanova's 

Villanova's hopes rest upon a 
maturing core of players who 
gained valuable experience last 
season. Indeed, nine of the 11 
offense starters are returning for 
the Cats. 

Sophomore Brian Finneran 
broke a couple Villanova freshmen 
receiving records last season (56 
catches, 805 yards) while tailback 
Anthony Cowsette powered his 
way to 12 touchdowns and 74 
points, both of which set the 
standard for Villanova 

Nevertheless, a large question 
mark remains at quarterback 
where there has not been consis- 
tency since Tom Columbo (1990- 
1992). Tom Marchese, who started 
six games last season and threw 
for over 1,500 yards, will start 
tonight. However, he could be 
pushed by Clint Park, a red-shirt 
sophomore who transferred from 
the Naval Academy. 

Marchese will play behind an 
upper-classman offensive line. 
The two offensive starters Villan- 
ova lost to graduation were from 
the line, but Head Coach Andy 
Talley sees little reason for 

"The offensive line should be 
bigger and stronger than last year 
and develop into a real strength," 
said Talley. 

The starting line, anchored by 
senior center Ante Benzija, aver 
ages6-foot-4,271 pounds, with the 
largest player standing 6-foot -7 
and weighing 295 pounds (junior 
Matt McKnight). Toss in tight end 
Pat Krebs, who is used almost 
exclusively as a blocker, and the 
Cats have an impressive founda 
tion with which to work. 

"We expect to be more wide 

open this year," said Talley. 
"With several young players 
having received valuable expe- 
rience last year, the olfense should 
be vastly improved." 

One of the reasons for a "more 
wide-open" style may be the corps 
of receivers that Talley says 
"should be among the best in the 
Fast. ' In the past, Talley has 
rotated as main as six or seven 
tt'ceivers at a time. This season 
may be no different as the depth 
at receiver gives Talley a multi 
I ude of weapons to employ. 

.Nevertheless, '.Nova s detense 
will have to rise to the occasion 
if the team has any hope of 
succeeding. 'The defense lost five 
starters, including two linemen 
and two linebackers, but Talley 
remains optimistic. 

"This year's defense could be 
one of the fastest we have had 
here," said Talley. 

Senior linebacker 'Tyrone Fraz- 
ier will shoulder much of the 
burden as the alTAmerican enters 
the season as a candidate for the 
Division I AA T)efensive Player of 
the Year award. He led the league 
in tackles with 150, recorded chree 
sacks and forced two fumbles. He 
is a consistent performer who 
once recorded 25 tackles in a 
single game. 

"Tyrone has great speed and 
instincts which make him truly 
one of the best players in the 
country," said Talley. 

Frazier is joined by senior A.J. 
Burawski, a linebacker who is 
entering his second season as a 
Wildcat since transferring from 
Penn State. Burawski tallied 100 
tackles last year and should be a 
dependable contributor again. 

The defensive line is marked 
with uncertainty as it attempts to 
recover from the losses of Gregg 
Ziegler and Remo Guarnieri. 
Nova does return All-Conference 
Chris Curtis, who recorded .59 
tackles (six of which were for 
losses) and 6.5 quarterback sacks. 
However, the defensive end posi 
tion is inexperienced as two 
freshmen, Sean Goodrich and 
Jason Gattuso, will get the nod. 

"[The endsj will have to play 
well from the start of the season 
for our defense to be good," said 

Talley and his troops will 
answer a lot of questions tonight 
as they take the field against 
Boston University, hoping to 
erase the specter of last year's 30- 
15 loss.

DeFilippo turns down ESPN broadcast 

Timing raises concerns over 
student attendance at event 


Editor in Chief 

After two weeks of deliberation, 
Director of Athletics Gene DeFi 
lippo announced last Friday that 
he did not accept the ESPN Total 
Sports Network's request to air a 
live broadcast of the Wildcats' 
"Midnight Madness." Commit- 
ting to the all sports station would 
have meant scheduling the event 
on the first Saturday of the 
University's fall break. 

DeFilippo admitted that his 
final decision changed after orig- 

large class 


News Editor 

To reach a desired freshman 
class of 1,550, the University 
accepted 150 fewer students for 
the 1995-19% academic year and 
"still came up with another 
hundred over," said the Rev 
William McGuire, O.S.A., dean of 
Enrollment Management. This 
year's class of first year students 
includes approximately 1,650 
people, he said. 

"The main issue here is that we 
are a very, very popular schtxil," 
said McGuire. It is "extremely 
difficult to pinpoint this thing" 
within a few students. "Our 
margin of error this year was only 
alx)Ut 1.5 jx^rcent, so we're not 
really concerned that we're way 
out of whack," he said. 

Even though the last two to enter the Universitv 
have Ix'en larger than the two 
preceding classes, McGuire said 
the sch(X)l IS still committed to 
right sizing the student popula 
tion. "We are getting smaller," he 
said, noting that the total enroll 
ment five years ago was (i,692 
compared with this year's pro 
jected enrollment of 6,182. "Right 
sizing was a 10-year plan . and 
it's dynamic; it continues to fx- 
reassessed," he added 

"What we wanted was 6,]()7 
I-ast year and this year we have 
had a larger freshman class than 
anticipated, but it's a gO(xJ kind 
of problem," he said. The Univer 
sity's plan is to keep total enrol 
Iment at 6,1(X) students for the 
next three years, at which time 
"a decision is made as to how long 
It should take us to go down to 
5,800 if we want to go to that," 
said McGuire. 

"You can't predict free will," 
said the Rev. John P. Stack, 

inally believing he would allow 
ESPN to cover the event live. In 
a discussion the athletic director 
had with the Reverend Edmund 
J. Dobbin, O.S.A., last Thursday, 
the University president asked 
him which way he was leaning on 
the subject. Def^ilippo, now in his 
third year as director of Athletics, 
informed Dobbin that he needed 
another night to think about his 
decision, but he Ix^lieved he would 
commit to ESPN. 

"1 got up the next morning with 
a clear head and really thought 

about it," DeFilippo said. "I just 
didn't feel like we would be doing 
the right thing if we had a 'Mid 
night Madness' and a lot of the 
students couldn't come. 'Wildcat 
Roar' has become one of bigger 
events that we have on campus 
and to deprive some of the stu 
dents, particularly freshman who 
are more inclined to go home, just 
wasn't fair." 

"Wildcat Roar," Villanova's 
version of "Midnight Madness," 
will now be scheduled for early 
November, allowing a vast major 
ity of the campus to attend. 
Contrary to speculation that the 
event will take place in the Jake 
.Nevin Fieldhouse, the 1995 rally 
will Ix' in the duPont Pavilion. 

Despite wanting to allow the 
sports network to air the festiv 
ities live, DeFilippo believed it was 
more important to stick to the 

philosophy his department has 
preached for the last two years. 

"For two years, when I came 
here, we've talked as a body that 
this team is the student's team 
and that this is their school, " said 
DeFilippo. "As administrators, 
we are here to serve. It's not 
always the easy thing to do, to 
walk the walk, but it's always the 
right thing to do." 

Because of the many unknowns 
this unique circumstance encoun 

tered, the Athletic Department 
had a very difficult time reaching 
its resolution. With such a tempt 
ing offer before him, DeF'ilipixj 
struggled to turn ESPN down. 

"This was not an easy deci- 
sion," he said. "This would have 
sent this basketball program to a 
higher notch, with a lot of visibil- 
ity leading up to the event but it 
just wasn't right and that's the 
key thing "

1,400 sch(K)ls to rate institutions 
in the same category as their own 
These reputational rankings were 
then combined with data provided 
by the colleges themselves. 'The 
statistics also measured student 
selectivity, faculty resources. 

financial resources, graduation 
rate and alumni satisfaction. In 
all, 14 statistical measures were 
used for the rankings. 

Other Northern regional col-

The increased visibility of this

increase the marketing potential 
of the colleges and universities 
listed. However, U.S. News has 
had to take pains to reassure

bankers and Washington lob- 
byists as he fought for a pro- 
gram enacted by Congress in 
1993 over the objections of 
commercial banks to let the 
government make direct college 
loans to students who have a 
longer time than under a pre- 
vious system to repay them. 

The Republican-run Con- 
gress is considering scaling 
back or limiting the loan pro- 
gram to balance the Federal 
budget over seven years, argu 
ing that a Federal bureaucracy 
IS not needed to offer student 
loans and that loan volume will 
not be affected by shifting 
student loans back to the pri- 
vate sector.

ance the budget over 10 years

education to prepare for the 
nation's new technological age. 

U.S. asked to 
give Alaska jobs 

KETCHIKAN, Alaska — 

Alaska's two senators, newly 
installed in two of the most 
powerful committee positions 

in Congress, are pushing a bill 
that would require the Federal 
government to provide South- 
east Alaska with 2,400 timber 
jobs. According to Forest Ser 
vice estimates, if implemented, 
the program would cost tax- 
payers nearly $30 million a 

The fight over the timber 
jobs has put the two major 
parties at odds with their 
national identities. The Repub 
licans are fighting for a deficit- 
adding jobs bill and the Demo- 
crats say that free enterprise 
should be allowed to work in 
the market system of the state. 

NATO raids 
threaten alliance 


NATO cruise-missile attack 
launched against Bosnian Serb 
air defenses Sunday continues 
despite the threat of damaged 
relations with Russia. 
Russia, historically an ally of 

the Serbs, voiced its opposition 

to the NATO air strikes on 
Bosnian Serbs. Russian De- 
fense Minister, Pavel S. Gra- 
chev, told Defense Secretary 
William J. Perry that the NATO 
raids could lead Russia to 
reconsider recent military 

agreements with NATO and 
international treaties. 

In addition, the Russian 
Foreign Minister, Vitaly I. 
Churkin, convened a meeting 
with NATO envoys and told 
reporters, "We do not see any 
progress whatsoever Jjl im. 
proving things in Bosnia and 
Herzegovena. We are very wor 
ried that this will get way out 
of hand." 

Rebuttal begins 
before defense 

LOS ANGELES - Prosecu- 
tors in the O.J. Simpson trial 
launched their rebuttal this 
week before the defense rested 
its case. The prosecution 
started with a series of photo- 
graphs of Simpson in gloves 
that the prosecution hop)es will 
link him to tliose used in the 
double murders. 

Judge Lance Ito refused to 
bring former Detective Mark 
Fuhrman back to court to 
testify again, but granted a 
request from Simpson's attor- 
neys to appeal that ruling. 

Ito ordered the prosecutors 
to begin their rebuttal while 
the defense rested.

CA T offers glimpse of fall programming schedule 


iVcM'.s Editor 

The Campus Activities Team 
(CAT) has unveiled its fall pro 
gramming schedule which in- 
cludes a variety of big names and 
events. Most of the planning and 
coordination was completcxi dur 
ing the summer, said Megan 
Mooney, assistant director of the 
Office of Student Development. 
"We have been working on getting 
names that people recognize to 
provide entertainment on cam- 
pus," she said. 

The entire semester has already 
been planned, said Mooney. Block 
Party Weekend began last night 
with the Matthew Sweet concert 
and will continue tonight with the 
Street Dance in the quad and 

tomorrow with a football trip to 
the University of Delaware. The 
events will conclude Saturday 
night with "Star Wars" Ix-ing

Minus grade system 
finally implemented 


Assistant News Editor 

After seven years of planning, 
the University has implemented 
a minus grade system in an 
attempt to redefine grades and put 
Villanova on equal footing with 
otflef Uhrversiries"."^" "^ ^ 

The resolution to add minus 
grades was passed in the late 
1980s by the University Senate. 
However, "the computer systems 
in the school at that time were 
not sophisticated enough to handle 
them [minus grades]," said Cath- 
erine H. Conner, acting registrar. 
Consequently, Villanova waited 
for the establishment of the 
Banner system, the newly intro- 
duced University wide database 
system, before changing the grad 
ing criteria. The University de- 
cided that it would be better to 
wait for the new computer system 
rather than to add minus grades 
to the old system. Although the 
Banner sysrtem became effective 
last January, the addition of 
minus grades was delayed until 
the beginning of the new academic 

"The University traditionally 
was a five-grade system," said Dr. 
Harry Strack, a member of the 
University Senate who originally 
helped to pass the resolution. 
"Villanova implemented a plus 
grade system around 10 years ago 
and was one of only two schools 

with such an unbalanced system," 
he added. "Professors didn't feel 
that a five-grade system was an 
accurate indication of students' 

One reason behind the system 
was to make it easier for students 
planning toattend graduate school 
by TTiffkinig their grades more- 
precise, said Conner. 

"Some people claim that a 
minus grade system causes grade 
inflation," said Dr. John R. Jo- 
hannes, vice president for Aca- 
demic Affairs. "Then again, some 
people claim that it doesn't. It's 
like opening a mixed can of 
worms" The passing of the reso- 
lution stirred up some debate from 
students when it was being con- 
sidered in the late 1980's. 

"From my perspective, a 
teacher's perspective, it is a go(xl 
system," said Johannes. "It fine 
tunes grades a bit mart'. U a 
faculty member misjudges a stu- 
dent's grade, under the minus 
system, the grade is only one third 
of d point off. It smooths the edges 
and is less damaging," he added. 

There has been no negative 
feedback from professors or stu- 
dents this term regarding the 
addition of minus grades to the 
system. "Previous grades by 
students will not change on their 
transcripts," said Conner. More 
information on how minus grades 
will be figured is available in the 
office of the Registrar. 

Fine arts center options 
under consideration 


Associate Editor 

A fine arts center may become 
a reality at Villanova University, 
but not in the immediate future. 

Currently, studies are being 
conducted by Facilities Manage- 
ment on the feasibility of such a 
center and its location, said the 
Rev. Edmund Dobbin, OS. A One 
possibility that the committee is 
investigating is the renovation of 
the Jake Nevui Field House info 
a fine arts center. 

"We're constantly l(X)king at 
the campus, especially more re 
cently, the athletic area and 
talking alx)ut our various needs," 
said Dobbin. "They're (Facilities 
Management] doing a kind of 
'dirty study' of what it would take 
(to renovate Nevin], whether the 
building could supix)rt the reno 
vat ions and whether it would be 
more feasible to build a new 
building or (to renovate Neviri]" 

Dobbin also indicated that these 
studies were at a low level and 
are simply a vague outline of what 
may follow. 

"It (the study] hasn't even been 

presented to the facilities commit- 
tee, " he said. 

A plan for a fine arts center does 
appear in the University's ]99S 
strategic plan, "A F"uture of 
Promise, A Future of Excellence." 
However, the construction of a 
new engineering laboratory build 
ing and major renovations lit 
Mendel Hall, both expected t(i 
begin in the near future, have put 
the I I'niversity in a money crunch. 

"When it's in the strategic plan. 
It means that it's in our sights," 
he said. "But, the (>ngineeriiig 
laboratory building and the m,i)or 
renovations of Mendel Hall are 
twoextremely <"XfX'nsive facilities. 
The ability of the University to 
finance these things is a real 

Renovations of the Commerce 
and Finance facilities may also 
have a higher priority than the 
projK)se(l arts center, said l)()bt)in. 
"As important as a performing 
arts center is, the academic prior- 
ities have to come first This is 
not the kind of thing that's going 
to b<^ started in the next two years, 
as much as I would love to Im- able 
to do It," he said.

Seniors contemplate career 
and graduate school options 



The Career I'hiiiiim^^ and IMace- 
ment Office holds intormatioii 
sessions Mondays .it T) p. in 
throughoul the year tor I hose 
seniors who would like to ijarlu 
ipate in the i)roKfrani Seniors need 
only lo at lend one session where 
they will be oriented to the variety 
of services offered, said Nancy 
Dudak, director of the Career 
Planning and Placement Office. 

The office has three levels of 
relationships with employers, 
said Dudak. To register for on 
campus recruiting, two copies of 
the Villanova Interview Form and 
the student's resume must be 
registered with the office. From 
5 p.m. Monday to T) p.m. Thurs 
day, students may check in the 
office for the companies who will 
Ix" interviewing students on cam 
pus. If interested m a particular 
company, students must return 
another copy of the interview 
form and their resume for consid 
eralion. Three to four weeks later, 
students must verify whether 
they have been chosen for an 
interview, she said. 

Open season occurs from 8a.m. 
to 10 a.m. every Friday. At this 
time students may sign up for an 
interview if there is a last minute 

Typically, the companies fill 
twelve slots a day with half hour 
interviews, but the interview 
schedule is flexible according to 
each company. "We go with wha 
teverthecompany wants," Dudak 

In the resume referral service, 
students may choose up to three 
categories of career interests. 
Then they register a resume for 
each category chosen, said Dudak. 
Many students write several 
versions oi their resume to fit the 
different categories they choose, 
she said. The office sends the 
resume to companies who ask for 
It "l think there's more opportun- 
ity with the resume referral 
service because it takes into 
account career interests," she 

Job listings are another career 
planning option. Openings for full 
time, professional jobs are listed 
in the mauve notebooks inside the 
office. As these are immediate 
openings, "I recommend that 
seniors hold off until second 
semester because these companies 
may not be willing to wait to fill 
the position," said Dudak. 

Notebooks in the office also list 
summer jobs, part time job open 
ings and internship options, 
Dudak said These internships 
are not for credit, although some 
students take them to the intern- 
ship office to ask for credit. Tlie 
internships are meant to comple- 
ment, not comjK'te with, other 
services offered on campus, she 

for students hntking into grad- 
uate s(hool. the office keeps 
registration materials and direc 
tones of schfxils. 7'he directories 
explain the required entrance 
exams tor s)m'( ific sch(K)ls, the 
deadlines lor exams and the tyix^ 
of programs each sch(X)l offers. In 
addition, the office has index 
cards that students may send to 
sch(K)ls to re<eive more informa 
tion, said Dudak. 

The )obs listed with the Cartrr 
Planning and Placement Office 
are mainly regional Jobs can be 
found from Boston Washington, 
DC , said Dudak For those stu 
dents who want jobs elsewhere, 
the office will write letters of 
reiiprocity to other schools re 
(juesting that the student be 
allowed to use their career plan 
ning services As some schools 
will not accept letters of rex^iproc 

ity, it IS up to the student to 
research the options. The alumni 
directory and alumni club are 
often helpful, and the office will 
assist with any research neces 
sary, she said. 

We go with whatever 
the company wants. 

Nancy Dudak, 

director of the Career Planning 

and Placement Office 

In addition to actual job 
searches, the Career Planning and 
Placement Office holds a resume 
review session from 2-4 p.m. every 
Friday. Students may receive help 
with resumes, cover letters, or 
essays for graduate school, said 
Dudak. M(K-k interviews are held 
three times a week by appoint 
nient. A 15-to-20 minute video 
taped interview where the coun 
selor plays the role of employer 
IS held, she said. 

Students also may use the 

credential service to set up and 
store letters of reference from 
professors. This service is free to 
set up, but there is a $.'{ iircKCssmg 
fee each time a reference is sent 
out. "Students should establish a 
file if they are considering grad 
uate school later, because some 
times it is hard for a professor to 
remember people years later," 
said Dudak 

Three counselors are available 
t(» speak with by apjxjintment on 
a one-to-one basis. These meetings 
are confidential, said Dudak. 
Several jx'er counselors do resume 
critiques and help students find 
resources within the office, she 

Athletics programs seek certification 

"Seniors should gi 
selves a break. This 
question of competence, 
of management skills, 
seniors are t rying to do e 
they can," said Dudak.

in comfortably with e

The Rev. EdmundJ. Dobbin, 
OS. A, University president, 
announced recently that Vil 
lanova began a year long, 
campus wide effort to study its 
athletics program as part of the 
National Collegiate Athletic 
Ass(x-iation Division 1 athletics 
certification prcx-ess Sixnific 
areas the study will cover are 
academic and financial integ 
rity, rules com[)liance, as well 
as a commitment to equity. 

The NCA.^ is a membership 
organization of colleges and 
universities that participates 
m intercollegiate athletics as 
an integral part of the educa 
tional program and the athlete 
as an integral part of the 
student body. Activities of the 
NCAA membership include 
formulating rules of play for 
NCAA sports, conducting na 
tional championships, adopting 
and enforcing standards of 
eligibility and studying all 
phases of intercollegiate 

Academic accreditation is 
common in colleges and univer 
sities. This program is the first 

to f(K"us solely cjii certification 
of athletics programs. Follow 
ing a pilot prcjjecl, the NCAA 
Division I membership over 
whelmingly supported the pro 
gram and its standards at the 
1993 annual convention 

The certification program's 
purpose is to ensure integrity 
in the institution's athletic 
oix^rations. The study will seek 
input from the entire 'Villanova 
community and results will be 
shared publicly. Villanova will 
Ix'nefit by increasing aware 
ness and knowledge of the 
athletics program campus 
wide, confirming its strengths 
and developing plans to ini 
prove in areas of c-oncern. 

Within each area to be stu 
died by the committee, the 
NCAA has set standards, called 
operating principles, which 
were adopted by the NCAA to 
provide a "measuring stick" 
upon which all Division I col 
leges and universities will be 
evaluated. The University also 
will examine how the activities 
of the athletics program relate 
to the mission and purpose of 
the institution

Homecoming changes 
fall Into place 

Homecoming. An event that should conjur thoughts 
of alumni, students, faculty, family and friends celebrating 
'Nova usually evokes images of drunken, muddy brawls, 
public urination and vandalism. Over the last few years, 
the Homecoming committee has enforced new policies in 
an attempt to curtail such beastly behavior. 

Each year the new policies are surrounded by rumors 
and grumblings. This year is proving to be no different. 

The greatest changes in policy for this year's 
festivities include a designated drinking area on Sheehan 
Beach for those 21 years of age and older and separate 
entrances for alumni and students. The University 
considers Homecoming an event for the Villanova family 
and, therefore, students attending other colleges and 
universities will not be admitted. 

Instead of wasting energy trying to circumvent these 
policy changes, students will find they will have more 
fun if they offer their cooj)eration. These policies were 
not created to restrict student enjoyment, but merely to 
guarantee student welfare. 

Various games and activities will be set up for 
everyone to enjoy, in addition to live musical entertain- 
ment. Last we heard, you did not have to be inebriated 
to enjoy such activities. Self-control does not only save 
face for the University, but it may save face for yourself. 
After all, thinking back on Homecoming last year. . . 

Demographic diversity 
demands Wildcat shuttle 

For a little over two and a half years, the Department 
of Public Safety has been offering students a convenient 
shuttle service. The Wildcat Shuttle continues to be one 
of the most visible successes initiated by the collaborative 
efforts of Public Safety and Student Government. 

The shuttle schedule has been doubled each year of 
its existence. Rider surveys were conducted last year to 
see how the service could best suit the needs of the most 
amount of students. Public Safety has been flexible and 
attentive to the needs of Villanova students and should 
be commended. 

Now it is time to extend the Wildcat Shuttle Service 
beyond the Main Line. 

Without fail, hundreds of students struggle to find 
transportation to the Philadelphia Airport or 30th Street 
Station during the University's scheduled vacation 
periods. Student Government and Public Safety could 
provide students the much needed transportation if they 
fight for an expansion in the shuttle service. 

Becaus(> of fiscal restrictions, incorporating a service 
that could carry students as far as the air^x^rt will 
undoubtedly be difficult. Soask students to pay a minimal 
fee. They would rather pay a small amount of money 
and be guaranteed a ride to the airport or train station 
than have to worry about calling a cab or transferring 
trains with handfuls of luggage. 

We will even give you a sales pitch: "Having a 
University run shuttle service will make travelling to and 
from Villanova more convenient and attractive to the 
students we are recruiting from Western and Mid Western 

The Wildcat Shuttle Service was given a trial run 
for the first semester of its existence and quickly became 
a tremendous success. There may be a few unknowns 
surrounding this tyjx* of expansion in the service, but 
at least give it a try

figfua/ opportunities 

To the Editor, 

Every fall, hundreds of student.s 
have the opportunity to partici 
pate in service trips that allow 
those who are fortunate to help 
those who are less fortunate. 
These students exemplify the 
meaning of Villanova community. 
Service trips should provide the 
opportunity for students to meet 
other students who feel the same 
sense of service. 

This fall, one Habitat for Hu 
manity trip has l)een made exclu 
sive to only certain members of 
the Villanova community. Al 
though we applaud and respect 
any person who is willing to 
sacrifice their Pall Break to help 
those in need, we believe that all 
trips should b<> made available for 
all those who wish to serve. A 
Campus Ministry-sponsored 
closed trip does not embrace our 
ideals of Villanova community. 

Shouldn't volunteerism be an 
aspect of Villanova life that dties 
not .separate the community, but 
instead brings us together?

on behalf of students. Especially 
important to the Student Govern- 
ment this year are issues of 
diversity, academic integrity, 
specific improvements to the West 
Campus apartments, recycling 
initiatives, off-campus concerns, 
and much, much more. We pledge 
to address the needs and concerns 
of students and all others and as 
issues arise throughout the aca- 
demic year the S(iA will continue 
its commitment to representing 
the entire student body. 

With all of the above mentioned 
goals, the most important objec 
tive of the 1995-96 Student Go 
vernment Association remains 
unsaid. That goal centers around 
the fact that, as students, it is our 
collective duty to come together 
and work together to create a 
stronger community. We all have 
the duty to rise above discrimina 
tion and disrespect and embrace 
a lifestyle of respect and resp(jn 
sibility. Tolerance and passive 
conformity no longer suffice; 
rather, each of us must make 
continual, sustained efforts con- 
tributing to the intellectual, cul 
tural, social, and personal devel 
opment of Villanova. The future 
of Villanova University is in our 
capable hands and with dedication 
and persistence, we can truly 
make a difference. 

We look forward to a extremely 
pnxluctive year and encourage all 
of you to join us. The Student 
(iovernment Association is kxated 

at 204 Dougherty Hall (x97203)

Packwood's resignation saves face for Senate 


Bob Packwood is gone, as well 
he should be. When a law maker 
becomes a lawbreaker, the resolve 
of the Senate should never waver. 
. With the evidence against him 
so staggering and so widespread, 
the Senate Ethics Committee ttxjk 
the only appropriate measure. 
The bipartisan vote was unanim 
ous and condemning as it chas 
tised the Republican from Oregon 
for engaging "in a pattern of 
abuse" of power as a senator, 
ranging from obstructing justice 
to sexual harassment to financial 

Fackw(xxf originally called the 
vote "totally and absolutely out- 
rageous." But by the next day, he 
had resigned, saying, "It is my 
duty to resign. It is the honorable 
thing to do for this country." 

Maybe Packwood has forfeited 
his right to speak of honor, but 
his words touch upon a deeper 
truth. Throughout the investiga 
tion, the honor of this country's 
most powerful legislative body 
was at stake. 

PackwcKxi's resignation allowed 
the Senate, for at least a moment, 
to reclaim some honor. 

Packwood was sacked despite 
his p<^litical talents. Hv had long 
been considered the(i()P's top tax 
guru in the Senate and fellow 
Republicans were counting on 
him to help guide them through 
their ambitious tax reforms. The 
senator, who had been elected in 
196H, was appointed chairman of 
the Senate Finance Committee in 
1995, when the Republicans took 
power. Simply put, he was at the 
pinnacle of his career. 

But the Senate, Republicans 
and DemcKTats alike, tcwk a stand 
For that, America can be 

Packwood resigned on his own, 
but there is little reason to believe 
the Senate would have had trouble 
mustering the 67 votes necessary 
for expulsion. By resigning. Pack- 
wo(xl saved himself from losing 
his benefits and pension. If he 
hadn't, he would have become the 
first senator to be expelled since 
14 members were kicked out for 
supporting the Confederacy. Be 
fore that, the only other person 

to be exjx'lled was in 1797 for 
collaborating with Spain. 

Packw(MKi's misdeeds are not 
tantamount to trea.son, but they 
are certainly serious enough to 
waive his right to govern. 

With the advent of the informa 
tion age, the voters have more 
ix)wer than ever to hold their 
representatives accountable. With 
our leaders living in this new level 
of visibility, moral leadership is 
more imp<_)rtant than ever before. 

A few years ago, it was popular 
to say that a person's policy- 
making should be judged separate 
from their personal character. 
Hojx'fully, Bob PackwexKl has left 
little doubt about the dangerous 
path we tread when we expect our 
leaders to live by anything less 
than the most ethical standards. 

It would be naive to think that 
Packwood's downfall signals the 
end of Congressional corruption. 
However, the vote of intolerance 
by the Senate Ethics Committee 
demonstrates a dramatic change 
in policy from just a few years ago. 
When the evidence is overwhelm- 
ing, the good of the Senate and 
the entire nation require strong 


Just maybe, the Senate has 
begun to get the message sent by 
the citizens of America. The 
unchecked jx)wer of years past is 
now tx'ing checked. 

As PackwcKxi leaves the Senate, 

we should not lei the depravity 
epitomized by his fall engender ill 
will toward Congress. Instead, we 
should celebrate the fact that our 
elected representatives have set a 
higher standard for Ix'havior. 

Faulkner opens doors 
for women 

Jiggling tlie iiandle of life 


Sta/J Columnist 

I stopped using a fake I.D. about 
nine months ago. Not because I 
developed morals about breaking 
the law, but because I finally 
turned 21. 
Jf* Turning 21 has a feeling like 
none other. It means you can 
drink beer in a social situation 
without having to wait in a 20- 
minute line for a dixie cup of flat 
carbonated hops. If you are a 
proud, false-identification carry 
ing younster, you may have the 
privilege of getting into some 
places, all the while fearing that 
the bar will get raided. 
In a raid you have a few choices: 

1) Hope you went to church last 
week and the cops won't card you. 

2) Roll the dice and show them 
your fake. (For the record, I know 
of a situation where this worked 
with a mediocre I.D.) 3) Suck it 
up, take your punishment and 
deal with fines and AA meetings. 
Sometimes, if you put up a fuss, 
the police will be glad to provide 
you with free accommodations for 
the night. 

Fortunately, I was never forced 
to make that choice. In my under 
age days, however, I spent many 
a nervous night looking out the 
window for flashing lights. Believe 
me, a night out at the local 
watering hole is much more re 
laxed when you don't have to plan 
an escape route. 

A few weeks ago, I had an 
experience that is particularly 
pertinent to the topic at hand A 
few of my friends and I wer(> 
planning to spend some time at 
a l(x-al bar. We were 21 so all was 

We go up to the d(K)r, and the 
bouncer (who looks like he may 
be an owner) .seems to have his 
hands full with a growing line. I 
go up first, hand him my Massa 
chusetts and wait for him 
to give the usual glance and hand 
It back to me. 

Instead he speaks: "Out of state 
license, I don't know, do you have 
anything else? " I'm thinking to 
myself, no big deal, this guy's just 
an [expletive]. So I handed him my 
newly validated Villanova ID. 

He looks, and speaks again: 
"What else have you got, this is 
only validated by the business 

In utter disbelief, I showed him 
my Gold's Gym card (with picture) 
which he quickly shrugged off, 
and again, he spoke: 

"I'll only accept a Social Secur 
ity card, military I.D. or a passport." 
This was now a problem. I don't 
think I've ever seen my social 
security card, I don't travel much 
and I left my military I.D. in my 
other pants. I had to say some- 
thingthat I never thought I'd have 
to say again. "Igot negged." 

What did I do next, you ask? I 
denounced his place of business 
(which just so happens to be The 
Brick Bar on Conestoga Road 
gathered my entourage and moved 
on to another of the many Main 
Line bars and taverns 

Since that little series of events, 
I have been sure to spread my ill 

feelings about the Brick Bar in an 
attempt to depopulanze it. Oh, 
and another thing, except for their 
specials, the drinks are way 
overpriced. Not like I hold a 
grudge or anything. 

Not having a good I.D. can 
seriously curb one's social life. 
But there are other options. I 
chose not to subscribe to the 
Greek way in college, but I have 
nothing against fraternity parties. 
They can be good and they can 
stink, it's a crap shoot. Drinking 
in the dorms is also popular, but 
there are those older people who 
live in your hall that can write 
you a bill at the drop of a hat. 


Last week, Nancy Mellette, a 1 7 
year-old senior at Oak Ridge 
Military Academy near (ireens 
boro, N.C., announced she was 
joining the fight toget women into 
the Citadel. She becomes the 
second of what many hope will be 
a wave of young women willing 
to fight for the right to attend 
South Carolina"s all-male mil 
itary academy. 

The first to try was Shannon 

Faulkner was granted the right 
to attend the institution last 
Spring after struggling face-to- 
face with sexism and tradition, 
only to be worn down to the point 
of psychological exhaustion. Need- 
less to say, the fight outside the 
Citadel cost her the fight inside 
as she was forced to drop out of 
academy training in less than a 
week — a shameful act for any 
Citadel cadet. 

However, Faulkner need not be 
ashamed. In attempting to become 
the first woman to attend the 
prestigious academy, she took on 
a broader responsibility. She was 
acting not only for herself, but for 
all Americans, female and male, 
who believe that a school, espe 
cially one financed by taxpayers, 
should have no right to di.scrim 
inate on the basis of gender. 

Women have already demon 
strated that they can perform just 
as well, or better, than men in the 
other service academies such as 
West Point and Annapolis. Female 
officers from these academies 
often graduate with distinction. 

The Citadel, however, is differ- 
ent. Attached to an oak of South 
ern culture by 153 years of male- 
generated tradition, the Citadel 
can Ix* a hostile place for most 
pt^ople, not just a single woman. 

By entering the institution, 
Faulkner became the hen in the 
rooster house. In order to survive, 
she would have had to become the 
Uberwomen — fitter than an 
Olympic athlete, as bald as a 
billiard ball and as beautiful as a 
movie star. Anything less would 
beshort of expectations, especially 
for a woman in the Citadel. 

When F"aulkner quit, the keep- 
ers of the rooster house ripped off 
their shirts, banged pipes on 
windowsills and shouted their joy 
as their school repulsed the threat 
of another gender and once again 
became a solace for male-driven 
egoism. Whether it will stay that 
way is still yet to bt^ decided by 
the Supreme Court. 

Although F'aulkner surely felt 
sad about leaving the Citadel, she 
has no reason to feel shame. Even 
though she may have lost her 
battle, she has not lost the war. 
In fighting as hard and as long 
as she did, Faulkner has aliened 
the door for more trcx^ps. Women 
like Mellette will follow in her 
footsteps, striking back at aily- 
fhmg that impedes their way, 
whether it is sexism or 1.53 years 
of conservative thinking. 

This willingness to take up her 
cause gives Faulkner the right to 
hope that "next year a whole 
group of women will be going in," 
succeeding where she has ap- 
peared to fail. 

Bye, bye Miss American pie 


Assoiiate Editor 

The Miss America pageant, 
which has attempted to symbolize 
everything that is gocxl, whole 
some and American apple pie, will 
celebrate its 75th anniversary 
tomorrow night when it airs live 
from Atlantic City on NBC. This 
year the question weighing most 
heavily on everyone's mind is not 
who will wear the coveted crown 
at the end of the evening, but will 
the swimsuit comfx^tition remain 
as part of the roadway to the 

Please, give me a break. \r\\ 
get down to basics. No matter how 
you look at it, this is a beauty 
pageant. Granted, it may be the 
bt>auty pageant to end all beauty 
pageants, but it is still a beauty 
pageant. Withdrawing the swim 
suit comptmtion from the pageant 
will not serve to heighten the 
integrity of a prf)gram that pa 
rades young women around as 

During the first half of the 
tomorrow night's three hour 
show, viewers will have the ability 
to vote the swimsuit competition 
thumbs up or thumbs down 
Before every commercial break. 

two 90() telephone numbers will 
appear — one for yes, one for no. 
Throughout the evening, home 
audiences will W updated with 
the results of the poll. 

Ordinarily, the swimsuit com 
IX'tition IS scheduled as one of the 
earlier events of the evening. This 
year, the event is slattnl as the last 
event, unless the public votes to 
oust it from the program. 

What an absolute joke. 

In addition to the various scan 
dais which have tarnished the 
Miss America crown during recent 
years, more and more the sheer 
existence of the pag<'ant is ques 
tioned. Today's pageant attempts 
to provide Americans, especially 
young women, with strong role 
models. However, all t(K) often it 
IS difficult to see Ix^yond the big 
hair, cakedon make up and mile 
wide smiles to see 'the role 

So the officials of the i)ageant 
come up with this great idea to 
allow the public to decide whether 
or not to keep the swimsuit 
competition, the most obvious of 
object parades on the agenda for 
the evening. However, this is 
merely a token gesture m attempts 
of being politically correct or at 

least to lay the blame elsewhere 
for continuing this dinosaur old 

The Miss America pageant 
began as the last big splash of 
Atlantic City's summer sea.son. I 
suppose that at one time it was 
acceptable for young women to Ix- 
treated as show ponies rac mg for 
a crown, however, that time has 
passed. Women are strong uulivid 
uals who are guiding our com 
munities and families forward 
into the future 

The Miss America pageant, 
awards a crown to the most well- 
gr(K)mtMj contestant. Contestants 
are there to sell themselves Sure 
the sale is easnT t(Klay when one 
can display intelligence and talent 
in addition to Ix-auty. afterall. we 
live in politically correct times and 
It takes more than sex to sell . 
or does it. When was the last time 
you saw a talenttnl, intelligent 
p^Tson with obesity strut down 
the runway?" 

Swimsuits or not, the days of 
the beauty pageant are numlxred. 
Women should not continue to 
degrade themselves for a su|X'rfi

Depending on which meal plan you are on, a specific 
number of points have been placed in a side account 
to your meal plan. You can use these points as you 
wish in any Dining Services' location on campus at 
any time during the day. But use your food points 
wisely, you only get a specific amount for each semes-

Food Points were added to your meal plan to offer you 
additional ways in which to use your meal card on

Student Senate: 

Plans come alive 
for the fall of '95 


Staff Reporter 

This year's Student Govern- 
ment Association (SGA) senators 
entered office last spring through 
an election with the highest voter 
participation in Villanova history. 
Yet many on campus remain 
unaware of who these students 
are and wha^ they do. 

Altogether there are nine SGA 
senators, each representing the 
undergraduate college in which 
he/she is enrolled. The three 

llQion tiolimiiiiii 

Commerce and Finance senators 
include Sheldon Pollock, Sneha 
Patel and Dana Mallardi, while 
the three Arts senators include 
Pete Acton, Maura Hennessy and 
Silvia Hasselt. Nicole Carastro is 
the Science senator, Maureen 
Finan is the Nursing senator and 
Stacy Raygor is the Engineering 

Patel, the only senator entering 
a second term this year, explained 
that the SGA "serves as a liaison 
between students and the admin 
istration." She joined the SGA 
because she saw it as "one of the 
organizations where you can act 
to make the changes that students 

Within the SGA, the senators' 
job is to "listen to what all 
students have to say," asserted 
Acton and "to raise student aware- 
ness" of campus issues, while 
keeping University President the 
Rev. Edmund Dobbin, O.S.A., 
aware of^tjjdent concerns. Acton^ 
sees the role of senator as a type 
of mediator or liaison for the 
campus community. 

"I would like to think that I 
represent Arts students, but also 
all students on campus," said 
Acton. While he addresses prob- 
lems unique to the Arts college, 
he also remains responsive to the 
needs of all students. 

Pollock also stated that "our job 
is to represent all students." He 
addressed last semester's appear- 
ance of tension between the SGA 
and the (ireek community by 
emphasizing that "we're a com- 
munity here whether you're Greek 
or non -Greek. We need to start 
bridging that gap " Pollock 
pointed out that the Student 
Government cabinet does deal 
with Greek affairs. 

The position of senator also 
includes a role in University 
policy formulation. Patel cited the 
effort to paint the St. Mary's 
tunnel and an attempt to improve 
the menu choices in the Italian 
Kitchen and the Corner Grille as 
projects she is continuing from 
last year. Concerns specific to the 
College of Commerce and Finance 
include a possible revision of the 
adviser system and a tentative 
loosening of the structure for 
course selection to allow students 
more choices for electives. Patel 
also looks forward to working 
with John A. Pearce, the new dean

of the College of Commerce and 

Finan became the Nursing Se- 
nator in order to facilitate com- 
munication between the nursing 
school and student government. 
She hopes to help nursing stu- 
dents feel informed and connected 
to the University as a whole. Her 
other goals for the upcoming year 
include tentative plans for im 
provement of the school infirmary, 
such as free flu shots at the 
beginning of flu season. 

Acton has helped to finalize this 

year's men's basketball ticket 
plan, while he and Raygor are 
working with UNIT on a possible 
system for reasonably-priced 
loans of computers to students. 

Acton and Pollock are continu 
ing their efforts to advance a 
prof)osal for an on-campus con 
venience store, possible located in 
Donahue Hall on South Campus. 
Both also mentioned the problem 
of overcrowding on campus as a 
significant issue, referring to the 
crowds on main campus at lunch 
time. "There comes a breaking 

Pssst . . . 

point," said Acton, "and right now 
we're bending it." Acton and 
Pollock also suggesttxl the addition 
of an off-campus shuttle for a 
western kxjp. 

"We're expecting a great year," 
said Pollock; "so far the admin 
istration hasb<rn very receptive." 
According to Patel, "We have a lot 
of g(K)d young people in student 
government." She attributed this 
to the SGA's reputation forgetting 
things done, which arose out of 
the last administration's 

"People didnt get that if s about modem young people wtio have an 
Independent spirit and do the things they want to and cant be told or 
sold. None of that came through." 

CaMn Klein on his recent Jeans ads 

"The great masses of the people ... will more easily fail victims to a 
big lie than to a small one." 

Adolf Hitler 

"The reader cannot be too often reminded that poetry is passion; it 
is the history or science of feelings." 

William Wordswoitti 

"if you had a million years to do it in, you couldnt rub out even half 
Ithe " — you" signs in the worid. It's impossible."

Assistant l-iutuns hditurs 

It's 8:55 p.m. and you have made 
it to the station with five minutes 
to spare. You barely hear the dtxjr 
slam behind you amidst all the 
pre-show chaos. You frantically 
search through the shelves for 
some tunes to start off the show. 
It is now 9 p.m. and you are on 
the air. You sit back, turn the 
lights down low and slip your 
hea(li)hones on. You kick off the 
show with a station identification 
cart that announces "You're 
listeninjx i*, WXVU and WXVH 
FM 1, Villanova." Suddenly, your 
voice is heard by hundreds as you 
greet your listening audience. You 
are a campus-wide celebrity due 
to the fact that you are an FM 
DJ on WXVU, Villanova's college 
radio station. 

It's now your responsibility to 
entertain your audience and keep 
them tuned to the show. For 
example: "I might not sound like 
a supermodel, but I look like one" 
is a sure attention grabber and has 
guaranteed results. About 15 
minutes into the show, you recap 
the tunes that have been played 
and read the essential Public 
Service Announcements, which is 
much more amusing than it 
sounds because they usually date 
back to the mid-80s and include 
ridiculous topics ranging from 
getting your car trapped in a mud 
pit to preventing canker sores. 

^ ^ > ■. 

Of iMiff ioioiip 

Now It IS time for another set 
of your favorite tunes. This cycle 
continues throughout the show. 
Finally, it is 1 1 p.m. and it is time 
to bid adieu to your audience. You 
return the music to the shelves 
and head home with the "1 just 
r(K"ked for two hours" glow. A 
quote from a ix)pular Kancid track 
sums up this state of b(>ing: 
If you wannu ^kt the fcilm and 
you wanna gel it right 
Then fhr music 's gotta he loud. 
For when the musit hits 
I feel no pain at all. 

This IS a typical day in the life 
ol a WXVl' DJ. For two hours a 
week, the station becomes an 
outlet for your twisted humor, 
wacky creativity, and most of all 

WXVU has a college radio for 
mat, which means the station 
does not play music that is heard 
on the main stream stations. The 
duty of a college radio station is 
to expose listeners to a wide 
variety of lesser known music. 
Each week the music director 
compiles a list of ,'55 bands. During 
the course of a show, a DJ is 
responsible for playing at least 
seven songs from that list: three 
from the top 10 and four from the 
remaining 25. The fate of the rest 
of the show is in the hands of the 
DJ's artistic freedom 
• In addition to the standard 
alternative progressive format, 
WXVU also features specialty 
shows in jazz, blues, hip hop, 
metal, world music and techno. 
The station is ojx-n to all new 
programming ideas, so there is 
something out there for everyone 
regardless of musical preferen( e 

Right now, you might Im- wond 
ermg how you can become a part 

of thisfineorganization. Actually, 
It IS quite simple. WXVU is con 
duiting hands on training ses- 
si(ms throughout the semester. 
These meetings will begin with a 
tour of the station, including lx)th 
equipment demonstrations and a 
grand overview of how t he station 
oix-rates. At that time, all potential 
FM DJ's will sign up for a two 
hour weekly show to be broad- 
casted on ()40 AM. An expt^rienced 
FM DJ (your "buddy"), will stop 
up during your show to make sure 
that everything goes sm(X)thly. 
Finally, when you think you've 
got what It takes to make the big 
time, you sumbit a 60 minute tape 
of your show for consideration. If 
approved, the program director 
will schedule your FM show and 
presto, you're a DJ. 

Sounds simple, doesn't it? So, 
if you're interested in becomming 
an on-air personality, visit the 
station at 210 Dougherty Hall, or 
call traffic directors Greg Scran- 
ton at ex. 15067 or Melissa So- 
dolski at ex. 15122 to schedule a 
training session. Until then, tune 
into WXVU on Tuesdays, Thurs- 
days, and Saturdays all day as 
well as Sundays until 2 p.m.

You put more than just your savings into a 
retirement company. You put in your trust and 
hopes for the future, too. So before you choose one, 
ask some questions. How stable is the company? 
How solid are its investments? Ho^v sound is its 
overall financial health? 

A good place to start looking for answers is in the 
ratings of independent analysts. Four companies, all 
widely recognized resources for finding out ho^v

TIAA their top grade. 


TIAA received A + + (Superior) from A.M. Best

stability, sound investments, claims-paying ability 
and overall financial strength. (These are ratings of

And TIAA-which, backed by the company's 
claims-paying atility, offers a guaranteed rate of return 
and the opportunity for dividends-is one of a handful of 
insurance companies nationw^ide that currently hold 
these highest marks.

What's In Your Head? 

\ \V 1$/// Laughter takes us 
" ' ' ' back to childhood 


Features Editor 

Although silence may be golden, 
I must admit that if I had the 
choice I would much rather spend 
my time laughing than remaining 
silent. (And believe me, I usually 
do.) Yes, I know. . . laughing and 
giggling are childish and I am 
technically an adult now so I 
should behave like an adult. But 
I still think there is nothing better 
in life than te ^xpafience people 
laughing, especially when you are 
among them. I feel very strongly 
that despite our chronological 
maturity, it is vital to cling to the 
giggles and laughter of our 
Thildhood.- ■■» — *-'■' " '' ■ •"' ^ • •" ' 

One of the things so unique 
about childh(xxl is that as kids we 
were easily amused by the simple 
things in life. For example, 1 recall 
spending hour after hour "riding 
bikes" after school each aftern(X)n. 
Up the block, turn around at the 
corner, back again. Up the block, 
turn around at the corner, and 
back again. All the while, proudly 
mounted on my shiny Pink Huffy. 
This would last for many minutes, 
even hours until: a) it was time 
for dinner, (always a top priority 
in my book), or, b) a run in with 
a tree, telephone pole or other 
obstacle physically removed me 
from the bike. Other than that not 
much else could stop me. 

And what about those high-tech 
childhood games we had? Stand 
outs such as hopscotch. Mother 
may I?, red light-green-light, hide 
and seek, manhunt, and one of my 
personal favorites SPUD. Not to 
mention 20 different variations on 
the game of "tag." TF tag, flash 
•^ight tag, and freeze tag to name 



Thank goodness there's Advil.* Advanced medicine for pain,' 

A/W 'int,ii"--, ihiit)fn(pri U'sennlyasdmteri 1 T^ Whifptvin I atxiratnnrs M*IK(»i N ' 

a few. And then there were all the 
countless, nameless games we 
made up all by ourselves. 1 re- 
member these well; they were the 
ones for which the rules changed 
as soon as I had been tagged out. 
"Oh no, I forgot, there's another 
new rule. You have to tag me three 
times with the ball and then I'm 
out," I would insist. And so the 
game went on, and on, and on. 

In retrospect, I guess I miss the 
lime in life when everything was 
as simple as spelling S-P-U-D, and 
the rules were equally as simple; 
the time when I could change the 
rules if I didn't like them. I guess 
a lot of people miss those times, 
and this is what makes growing 
up so difficult. It seems like as we 
grow up, life will hold a lot less 
games but a lot more rules. 

So naturally, it is our duty to 
keep ourselves laughing through 
the years. This is particularly 
important now, at a time when 
we may be called to grow up too 
fast too quickly and act more 
adultlike than ever before. 1 mean, 
1 don't expect to start seeing "Hide 
and Seek Night" at the Belle Aire 
or anything, (although it could be 
a go<xi idea. . . ), but it is important 
to act like a complete and total 
child on a somewhat regular basis 
and, more importantly, not be 
ashamed to do so. Try it, it's good 
for you. You might even get to 
have a good laugh.

What's In Your Head? 

I / Laughter takes us 



back to childhood 


hiuturi^ Editor 

Although silence may be golden, 
I must admit that if 1 had the 
choice 1 would much rather spend 
my time laughing than remaining 
silent. <And believe me, I usually 
do.) Yes, 1 know... laughing and 
giggling are childish and 1 am 
technically an adult now so I 
should behave like an adult F-Jut 
I still think there is nothing better 
in life than to exp«f4t;nce people 
laughing, esj)ecially when you are 
among them. I leel very strongly 
that despite our chronological 
maturity, it is vital to cling to the 
giggles and laughter of our 

One of the things so unique 
about childhood is that as kids we 
were easily amused h\ ihc simple 
things in life. For example, I recall 
sjiendmg hour after hcnir "riding 
l)ikes" after school each afternoon. 
Uj) the bl(K~k, turn around at the 
corner, back again. Up the bl(x:k, 
turn around at the corner, and 
hack again. .\\\ the while, i^roudly 
mounted on my shiny I'lnk Huffy. 
This would last for many minutes, 
even hours until: a) it was time 
for dinner, (always a top priority 
in my l)(M)k), or, b) a run in with 
a tree, telephone pole or other 
obstacle physically removed me 
from I he bike. Other than that not 
much else could stop me. 

And what about those high-tech 
childhcKxl games we had!^ Stand 
outs such as hopscotch. Mother 
may /.-'. red light green light, hide 
and seek, manhunt, and one of my 
personal favorites SPUD. Not to 
mention 1^0 different variations on 
the game of "tag." TV tag, flash 
light lag. and freeze tag to name

a few. And ilun there were all the 
countless, nameless games we 
made up all by ourselves. I re- 
iTieniber these well: they were the 
ones for which the rules changed 
as soon as I had been tagged out. 
"Oh no, I forgot, there's another 
new rule. You have to lag me three 
times with the ball and then I'm 
out," I would insist. And so the 
game went on, and on, and on. 

In retrospect, I guess I miss the 
time in life when everything was 
as simple as spelling S P I! D, and 
the rules were equally as simple; 
the time when I could change the 
rules if I didn't like them. I guess 
a lot of people miss those times, 
and this is what makes growing 
up so difficult. It seems like as we 
grow up, life will hold a lot less 
games but a lot more rules. 

So naturally, it is our duty to 
keep ourselves laughing through 
the years. This is particularly 
im[X)rtant now, at a time when 
we may be called to grow up too 
fast too quickly and act more 
adultlike than ever before. I mean, 
I don't expect to start seeing "Hide 
and Seek Night" at the Belle Aire 
or anything, (although it could be 
a good idea. . . ), but it is imjxjrtant 
to act like a complete and total 
child on a somewhat regular basis 
and, more importantly, not be 
ashamed to do so. Try it, it's good 
for you. You might even get to 
have a good laugh.

Around town: Things to do around Philly 


Enlirtuuinunt tdilur 

Once upon a time you were a 
( ute little baby. Wtil, inaytx- 
that IS Ko'iiH '< hit too far. You 
probably kxjked like a cross Ix-- 
tween a wrinkled prune and Mr. 
Mag(K), but I am sure some people 
thought you were cute. Anyway, 
one mornmg you woke up, looked 
at your mother, the woman who 
bore you, smiled that gassy baby 
smile and said, "Dada." 

Your parents were excited about 
your langna^'e development until 
you c ame across the most dreaded 
phrases in all creation: "There's 
"N nothing to do. I'm bored " With 

this discovery, your parents lives 
became a living hell in which they 
had to devise ways to keep you 

As you grew older, you began 
to assume responsibility for find- 
ing your own amusement. One 
might think you would get better 
at finding things to do with age, 
but still the phrase, "There's 
nothing to do" stumps you. Being 
the kind person f am, I thought 
I would be nice enough to provide 
some suggestions of things you 
can do when your creativity is 

Having reached my senior year 
at this fine institution, 1 have 
learned many things. The first 
thing is the party/bar scene gets 
old extremely quickly. Neverthe 
less, I have also learned a fast way 
to cure this boredom is a trip to 
I'hiladelphia, the City of Brotherly 

1 know it sounds trite to say 
there is something for everyone in 

I'hiladelphia, but as my friends 
and 1 liave discovered, it is true. 
Instead of spending your free time 
watching television, why don't 
you gather some of your friends 
and head for the city? Play tourist 
for a day and discover the many 
things the city has to offer. 

One of the first places you and 
your comrades should check out 
is Independence Hall (Chestnut 
Street between Fifth and Sixth 
streets). You will probably be 
amazed by how much American 
history you can actually re- 
member. See where the Det:lara 
tion of Independence and the 
Constitution were written and 
debated, and debated, and debated. 
Tours are provided for free and 
are lecommended. They are full 
of interesting facts regarding the 
signing of the Declaration and you 
just never know when informa- 
tion like that might come in handy 
(e.g. Jeopardy). 

Not far from Independence Hall 
is the Liberty Bell, the nation's 
symbol for freedom. Tours are 
also provided for free, and if you 
ask nicely, the guides will take 
prctures of your f rien'as'and you' 
with the Liberty Bell. 

The more capitalistic at heart 
can visit the U.S. Mint (Fifth and 
Arch streets) and watch coins 
Ix'ing made in the world's largest 
mint. Afterward, check out the 
First Bank of the United States 
i.120 S. Third street) which was 
founded by Alexander Hamilton to 
handle the Revolutionary War 
debt. Yes, even way back then we 
were in debt and had problems 
balancing the budget. 

Other points of historical inter- 
est you might want to include in 

Cultural Film'/ Proof 


Special to the Villanovan 

Australian writer/director Jo 
celyn Moorhouse explores 
the state of love and trust for a 
blind photographer named Martin 
(Hugo Weaving) in the film 
"Proof " Martin seeks to escape 
his childh(K)d angst and find true 
friendship rather than pity. 

Although at first the thought of 
a blind photographer might seem 
a bit outrageous, Moorhouse has 
crafted the film in such a realistic 
manner that one cannot help but 
believe in its characters. Martin's 
blindness becomes a metaphor for 
his struggles with trust and love 

When Martin was a child, his 
mother would descrilx' the world 
outside, though rarely taking him 
along when she left. Feelings of 
neglect gave way t(t bittern<'ss, 
paranoia and a distrust of people, 
esiK'ciallv women. Martin hn'lievrs 
his mother ac tually lied to him as 
a punishment for his hlindn<'ss 

To compensate for his handicap, 
Martin takes up forming a con 
nection with the real worlfl and 
his universe of darkness. He 
spends his time walking through 
parks and taking pictures of 
things he perceives to be present 
with his other senses, and th<'n 
has people describe the photos to 
prove to himself that his world is 
the same as everyone else's. 

After his mother's death, Mar 
tin became introvt-rted and cyn- 
ically distrustful of human nature. 
This is most ai)parent in his onlv 
remaining personal relationship 
with his housekeeper Celia (Gene- 
vieve Picot ). Though she tries 
continually to seduce him, and 
claims to love him, he rndelv 
refuses her so that he might pity 
her rather than fw pitied himself 

Martin and Celia's psychologi- 
cal wargames come to the boiling 
point when Martin befriends 
Andy (Russell Crowe), a dis- 
hwasher in a l(x:al diner. When 
the two men save a wounded 
alleycat by taking it to the vet, 
their worlds quickly meld to- 
gether. Andy begins to treat 
Martin as an equal and helps him 
to assimilate into the world in 
which he has always felt alien. 

Martin scxjn trusts Andy more 
than anyone else, and asks him 
to describe his assortment of 
photos. Martin admires Andy's 
frank and trustworthy opinions of 
the pictures. Andy soon volunteers 
his services to Martin, looking at 
all of his photos with the exception 
of a few of his most precious 
pictures of a garden that Martin's 
mother used to descnfx^ for him 

On Sept. 18 at the 7 p.m. 
showing of J(X~elyn M(X)rhouse's 
"Pr(K)f" in the Connelly Center 
Cinema, Ruth Perlmutter will bf 
discussing "Blind Sp<its and Ob 
sessions" in the film 

I'loof t halh-n^rs pn t cptioiis. 

vour wanderings are: 

Betsy Ross' House at 2'A\) Arch 
street — See where the first flag 
was supposedly stitched. Witness 
the potential value of that sewing 
class you had to take in high 

City Tavern on Second and 
Walnut streets — Grab a bite to 
eat where the delegates to the 
First and Second Continental 
Congresses hung out. Where were 
they supposed to go? Kelly's was 
not around back then. 

Philadelphia is not only home 
to the cheesesteak and pretzels. It 
also houses some of the world's 
finest museums. Anyone who has 
seen Rocky would probably enjoy 

a visit to the Philadeluhia Museum 
of Art (2I6th Street and Benjamin 
Franklin Parkway), even if it is 
only to run up its famous steps. 

The Franklin Institute (20th 
Street and Benjamin Franklin 
Parkway) not only offers some 
very, interactive science exhibits, 
but it also houses the Omniverse 
Theater and fantastic laserlight 
shows under its r(X)f. 

Since most of these larger 
museums can be found along the 
Benjamin Franklin Parkway, one 
might want to devote an entire 
day to exploring them to appre 
ciate their offerings. Note: this is 
a perfect rainy day activity. 

Philadelphia is not just a city 

devoted to the arts or history. A 
visit to South Street will cure that 
notion. To say South Street is an 
experience simply does not do it 
justice. On any weekend night, it 
is thronged with people seeking 
entertainment, excitement and 
adventure. It is home to many 
unique shops (Zipperhead, Im 
agine), psychics, comedy clubs, 
restaurants, etc. South Street is 
a definite "must" on this list of 
things to do. 

Unfortunately, due to space 
limitations I cannot include the 
other thousand and one things to 
do around Philadelphia. My advice 
to you: Grab a map and some 
friends and go exploring.

Handbook olds self-ed 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

Everything you ever need to 
know about surviving in 
college (plus everything you did 
not know you needed to know) has 
finally Ix'en jammed into one tiny 
book. Written by two recent 
Barnard graduates, Rachel Dob 
kin and Shana Sippy, The College 
Wtiman's Handbook is a truly 
unique opportunity to expand 
one's mind while increasing self 

This informative b(X)k actually 
had its birth way back in the 
spring of 1992. It startenl out as 
a little handb<K)k aptly titled The 
Barnard Columhiii Women 's 
Handbook, and was i reated by a 
group of 3.^) female Barnard and 
Columbia students. Only 4,f)<H) 
copies were printed and it was so 
successful that it sold out in pist 
four days Soon after it was 
featured in the New York Times, 
and the demand for a more uni 
vcrsal national version quickly 

Research for The College Wotyi 
iin's Handbook started in June ol 
199.'i with the basic goal to inform 
and educate college women by 
providing a quick and reliable 
source of information to help 
make lh( f)est of the college 
ixixTience, both ni .ind out nt tin

l»lione iiumtxT for the National 
BI.K k Women's Health Project." 
hohkin and Sippy state in their 
lit let introduction 

The peer-topeer standpoint in 
which this book was written 
makes it easy to read, whether it 
be from cover to cover or as a quick 
flip through fact finder. The book 
Itself is divided into six major 
parts and 24 chapters, each deal 
ing with a different aspect of the 
college lifestyle. Everything from 
romance and roadtrips, staying 
healthy and hitting the lxx)ks, just 
hanging out and PMS — are all 
addressed within the confines of 
this mdis^x-nsable guide. 






Dobkin and Sippy have done 
their fx'st to attack hundreds of 
concerns and answer many ques- 
tions. Each chapter is complete 
with crazy asides, extensive ad 
ditional resource guides, and 
quotes from college women from 
across the United States. 

Although The College Woman's 
Handbook is primarily fcnnised 
toward the college woman (heme 
the title, duh!), both men and 
women alike can greatly benefit 
from this wealth of information.

Hollywood continues to skirt gay issues 


Entertainment Editor 

To those who pooh jxKjh "To 
Wong Foo," I say what did 
you expect? Beeban Kidron's 
multi million dollar 'ex drag 
aganza' starring Wesley Snipes, 
Patrick Swayze and John Legui 
zamo aims first to shock its 
audience with the sight of these 
manliest of men working it in 
pumps, and second to bring it back 
safely to this side of the main- 
stream with a cute and kitschy 
storyline. This is, after all, 

"To Wong Foo, Thanks for 
Everything! Julie Newmar" has 
been criticized up and down for 
its blatant sidestepping of gay 
and gender issues. After viewing 
the film it is impossible for me to 
disagree with this argument. I 
can, however, play devil's advo- 
cate for the makers of this film 
by pointing out that, while it 
certainly would be nice, not every 
movie has a message. Some are 
simply there to entertain. This is 
decidedly one such movie. TytQ 
lasting of Snipes and Swa^ 
alone should be some indication 
to the viewer that the film does 
not plan to chart any new territory 
in cinematic history. Writer Dou 
glas Carter Beane spins his tale 
in a rather user friendly way that 
eases viewers into this gender 
mixing concept. Note that we 
never see these men out of drag, 
never see their day to day lives 
and never see them in relation 
ships (except for a vague romance 
between Leguizamo and a naive 
farm boy that we only witness the 
beginning and end of). I can only 
attribute this to Beane's realiza- 
tion that, unfortunate though it 
may be, average theater-going 
Americans are still not ready to 
deal ofx'niy with "difficult' sexual 

Once one can come to terms 
with the fact that nothing new is 
going to be learned and no impor- 
tant questions are going to be 
prolK'd here, " Wong Foo " can be 
allowed to accomplish its goal and 
that is to make the audience 

We tirst get a glimpse of Vida 
Boheme (Swayze) and Noxeema 
Jackson (Snipes) as they strut 
their stuff for the Manhattan 
Drag Queen of the Year Ball. In 
a delightful, albeit very brief. 

cameo as Drag Queen of the Year 
1994. Rachel Tensions, Ru Paul 
sachets across the stage to an 
nounce this year's winner. But, 
oh, surprise! There is a tie, Vida 
and Noxeema share the honor and 
each receive an all expense paid 
trip to Hollywood to compete for 
the national title. However, before 
they are whisked out west the two 
meet up with young Chi Chi 
Rodriguez who is teary-eyed and 
distraught over losing the 
pageant. Never one to pass up the 
chance to help someone in need, 
Vida takes pity on Chi Chi and 
invites the young drag 'princess' 
to make the trip to tinsel town as 

In another scene stealing cameo 
Robin Williams (John Jacob 
Jingleheimer-Schmidt, a friend 
and contact) meets up with the 
ladies in a nearby Chinese restau- 
rant to take the plane tickets off 
their hands, set them up with a 
new mode of transportation and 
put the moves on Miss Chi Chi. 
While contemplating the trip, 
Vida notices an autographed pic- 
ture han ging on the wall above 
their table. It is none other than 
Vida's idol, the 'statuesque' Miss 
Julie Newmar. Vida takes this as 
a sign and then pnx'eeds to take 
it off the wall and bring it with 
them for good luck. 

For the first few hundred miles 
Miss Newmar is a charm. The 
ladies cruise across country, 
seeing the sights and teaching Chi 
Chi how to go from being a drag 
princess to a true queen. It is 
somehwere in the mid-west that 
the film begins to go south. While 
passing through a small town in 
what they assume must be West 
Virginia, the trio is pulled over by 
a state trooper who tries to take 
advantage of Vida after asking her 
to step out of the car. The talents 
of Chris Penn (Reservoir D(jgs) are 
wasted in this stereotypical 'red- 
neck cop' roll (the bumbling 
Sheriff Dollard, whose badge just 
happens to Ix' misspt^Ued 'Dul- 
lard') but he does make the best 
of It. We are reminded that there 
IS an action hero star beneath the 
frills and chiffon as Vida drops 
Sheriff Dollard in the dust and 
presumably dead. What follows is 
even more cliche'. The car breaks 
down in the virtual ghost town 
of Snydersville and the travelers 
are left to stay in this backward, 
fashion less place until the car can 
be repaired. It is not long before 

the ladies decide'to put a little 
pizazz in the sleepy little village, 
by making over everyone ana 
everything in their path. From 
f)ad hair to bad marriages, there 
IS nothing they can not handle and 
it is obvious from the beginning 
that everything is going to be just 
perfect before that convertible 
gets back on the road. One d(ies 
not know whether to laugh or 
groan when, observing the out- 
come of their good deeds, Vida 

says of the town, "sometimes all 
It takes IS a fairy! " Although the 
plot is certainly nothing a child 
of four could not predict, it does 
remain charming and consistently 
funny to the end. 

Despite all the flap about Wes 
ley Snipes not being 'womanly' 
enough for his role, I think he 
gives the most humorous [X'rfor 
mance in the film. Although his 
biceps are bursting out of most of 
those skin tight dresses and tees, 

his attitude and delivery of one- 
liners are simply "to die for'. 
Conversely, there are many mo- 
ments where it is easy to forget 
that that is John l^'guizamo be- 
neath all that make up and hair- 
spray. Unlike his co stars, legui- 
zamo IS able to bring (jut a true 
feminine 'essence.' 

All in all, "Wong Foo" is a fun 
film that never realizes its true 




Hollywood still glosses over different lifestyles in "Too Wong Koo." 

Natalie's solo debut fails 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

10,000 Maniacs have amazed 
fans for years with singer 
Natalie Merchant as their star. 
Natalie, to many, was 10,000 
Maniacs. Unfortunately for her, 
the debut of her solo album, 
Tigrrlily. proves that the talent 
and energy of 10,000 Maniacs lay 
not in Natalie but in the forgotten 
members of the band — Robert 
Buck, Dennis Drew, Steven (^lUS 
tafson and Jerome Augustyniak. 

Tigerlily has one positive attri- 
bute, Natalie's beautiful voice. 
Her voice is a large part of what 
made 10,000 Maniacs who they 
were. But her voice is not beautiful 
enough to carry off the musical 
short comings of the album. 

Tigerlily is composed of 11 
tracks. The music is slow and in 
many instances depressing. The 
CD gets boring quickly because 
the songs lack diversity. 

Two tracks on the CD that are 
moderately enjoyable are 
"Wonder" and "Carnival," "Car 
nival" is also the first released 
single for this CD. Although these 
songs have some \x)sitive qualities 
about them, they are accompanied 
by songs that are almost musicless 
such asf "Beloved Wife" and "San 
.Andreas Fault" to name just a 
couple. The album truly is a 

For many fans the loss of 10,000 
Maniacs was a big one. Luckily, 
there is hope. The rest of the band 
has kept the name 10.000 Maniacs 
and have h(K)ked up with some 
very talented friends John Lorn 
bardo and Mary Ramsey. Al 
though the names are not familiar, 
Mary Ramsey played with 10,000 
Maniacs on their MTV unplugged 
album. She was featured playing 
the viola, as well as singing 
background vocals. These are just 
two of Mary's abilities. She also 
plays the violin and the organ. 

John also has a variety of musical 
talents such as 12 string, bass, 
guitar and singing. 

John and Mary also have re- 
corded two of their own albums, 
the latest is called the weedkiller's 
daughter. On this album two 
members of ]0,0()0 Maniacs are 
featured — Robert Buck, on gui- 
tar, and Jerome Augustyniak, on 
drums. The weedkiller's daughter 
is a splendid ensemble of musical 
diversity, talent and beauty. For 
many longing 10,000 Maniacs 
fans it may be the answer to then 

One would be better off using 
their money to invest in ///( 
weedkiller's daughter instead of 
'Tigerlily With it one can get a 
taste of what the new 10,00(T 
Maniacs are in the prot^ess of 
creating. Listeners will not be

Marketing upgrades place 'Nova in spotlight 


Sta/f Repurttr 

Villanova University has al- 
ways taken pride in its rich 
tradition of student-athletes suc- 
ceeding iKitli on and off the field 
However, in past years, Villanova 
has not l)een as visible in the 
cor[K)rate coninuinity as some of 
its Catholic counterparts. Fortu 
nately, this has all changed under 
the current athletic adniinistra 
Hon, as Villanova Sports Market 
mg has rapidly taken a uniqut- 
marketing approach. 

In fact, Villanova currently 
boasts one of the most innovative 
marketing programs in college 
athletics. In the fall of 1993, when 
Gene DeFilippo ttx)k over as the 
Director of Athletics, he quickly 
named Tim Hofferth the Assistant 
Athletic Director of Kxternal 
Operations. Hofferth came to the 
Main Line from the IJniveristy of 
Kentucky, where the two men 
created one of the largest televi 
sion and radio networks in college 
athletics. Hofferth immediately 
saw Villanova as a great source 
of untapped pdential. 

"Villanova is a sch(X)l rich in 
athletic tradition, with a tremend 
ous alumni following, and a loca- 
tion in close proximity to the 
nation's fourth largest market: 
Philadelphia," said Hofferth. 

With these things in mind, 
Hofferth initiated a unique mar 
keting approach which would 
bring Villanova Athletics the 
visibility It had long awaited. 

The trailblazing cornerstone of 
this marketing approach revolves 
around the idea as an in-house 
marketing strategy called "One- 
Stop Shopping" refers to the 
marketing mediums available in 
connection with Villanova Athlet 
ics. These mediums include Ih*' 
Villanova F(x)tball Radio .Net work, 
the Villanova Basketball Radio 
Network, the Steve Lappas Radio 
Show, College Six)rts Today Radio 
Show, the Steve Lappas TV Show , 
in-stadium signage, ticket backs, 
.ind (iame-Day program ads to 
name a few. In implementing the 
concept of One Stop Shopping, 
Villanova Sports Marketing has 
taken control of the merchandise 
.irui sold them all internally, as 
opposed to having various entities 
controlling Villanova's athletic 

Night Club and Sports Bar

marketing medium. By doing this, 
the marketing department is abU- 
to custom design a nu'dia (am 
paigii whu li emphasizes the var- 
ious iicfds ot our many corjxjrate 
sponsors through our multiple 
mediums. As different corporate 
sfx)ns()rs desire to create maxi 
mum awareness of their prixlucts 
through different methtKls, Vil 
lanova Sjx)rts Marketing's One- 
Stop Shopping approach enables 
them to create a media campaign 
which is "tailor-made" to their 
marketing objectives. 

Villanova Sports Marketing has 
Ix'en very successful in this ap- 
proach, but has recently expanded 
into more non traditional and 
innovative areas. 

A unique deal between Villa 
nova and Pepsi in the past year 
will promote Villanova Athletics 
in places never seen before. 

"Villanova basketball has re- 
ceived tremendous exposure on 
national TV over the past several 
years, yet we are continuing to 
identify creative ways to promote 
the entire program through the 
use of unique marketing 
avenues," said Marketing and 
Broadcast Coordinator, Ryan 
Fan non. 

A portion of this deal will enable 

Villanova to place a promotional 
|M)Ster on the back of selected 
I'epsi trucks in the Philadelphia 
market. The poster will feature 
Villanova officially licensed 

Villanova Sports Marketing 
reached a similarly unique deal 
with AMC Theaters. This agree 
ment will give Villanova the 
opportunity to promote its offi- 
cially licensed merchandise in a 
display case in their lobbies, and 
on theater screens preceding 
movies in Northeast theaters. 
Reportedly both of these agree- 
ments will be implemented this 

Finally, Villanova Sports Mar 
keting has found another original 
way to promote the program 
through Domino's Pizza. Domi- 
no's will put Villanova promo- 
tional information on the top of 
all Domino's Pizza box tops in 44 
stores in the Northeast region, for 
two months prior to the NCAA 
Basketball Tournament in 

Also, the complaint that it is 
difficult to find Villanova mer 
chandise away from campus is 
being addressed. With the aggres 
sive marketing and promotions 
efforts of Villanova Sports Mar- 

keting coupled with efforts of new 
Licensing Coordinator Bruce 
Fletcher, finding Villanova mer 
chandise will tx' easy. Fletcher 
works to secure various six)rling 
g(Kxis stores as vending outlets of 
Villanova "Officially Licensed 
Merchandise." Fletcher is work 
ing hard to ensure that full lines 
of Villanova merchandise are 
available in stores all over the 
Northeastt region, and all over the 
country in the near future. The 
licensing program is another 

aspect of the mat keimg approach, 
which will h«'lp make the whole 
program suci'essful. 

In examining tlie many facets 
ol Villanova S[X)rts Marketing, 
one can only Ix' excited about the 
broad exposure Villanova will 
finally receive. So rest assured 
that as the teams on the field 
continue their success, this team 
will be making ground breaking

Men's soccer caught in Storm 


StaJJ Reporter 

The beginning of a season for 
every team has certain expect a 
tions and a few uncertainties. The 
first regular season game is often 
filled with sloppy play, with teams 
just trying to iron out the kinks. 
This is the reason coaches tend 
to schedule weak opp<;nents early 
on. For Coach Larry Sullivan, he 
received nationally ranked St. 
John's as his 19% first regular 
season and Big East Conference 

In the first half, the Cats played 
St. John's to a standstill. Except 
for the lack of shots by the offense, 
'Nova put pressure on the home 
team with solid midfield play. Five 
minutes into the second half, 
goalie Aleko Zeppos stymied a 
shot from the St. John's offense, 
but midfielder Ben Hickey blasted 
the rebound home for a 1-0 lead. 
Fifteen minutes later, Hickey 
struck again as he and midfielder 
Kicardo Joseph beat the Villanova 
defense with a nice give-and-go to 
take a 2-0 lead. That was all the 
scoring the hosts needed to cap the 

Although the Cats came up 
short in their regular season 
opener, there were some positives. 
The defense limited St. John's to 
six first-half shots and 15 overall. 

Also, junior forward John Correll 
iMayed a strong game for the Cats, 
taking four shots and putting 
substantial pressure on the St 
John's defense. 

"They were a really good team," 
said senior goalie Aleko Zeppos. 
"We stuck with them and played 
pretty even. We had a couple of 
lapses in the second half, but 
overall we were okay." 

However, the questions that 

We had a couple of 
lapses in the second 

Senhr goaHe Aleko Zeppos 

hovered over this team before the 
season started are still prevalent. 
The Cats managed only eight 
shots on goal and one corner kick. 
The loss of captain Jay Sommer 
to injury is a big loss and the Cats 
are still searching for someone to 
fill his shoes. Taking into account 
that it was 'Nova's first regular 
season game and its opponent was 
nationally ranked, the season 
looks promising. 

The Cats will travel to Phila- 
delphia Textile on Sept. 16 and 
without a doubt Coach Sullivan 
had this game circled on his 
calendar all summer: His son 
Bryan plays for Textile, so this 
game will be for bragging rights. 

On Sept 20, Villanova will visit 
national jxjwer Rutgers, a newco 
mer to the Big East. At the time 
of press release, we were unable 
to include the team's game Sept 
\'A versus Georgetown. 

Villanova (0-1) 
at Delaware (1-0) 

Saturday, September 16, 1 

Villanova and Delaware 
dueled it out last season in an 
exciting 3S3\ overtime deci 
sion tor Delaware. The Blue 
Hens enter the game ranked 
N(j. 12 in the nation and have 
defeated the Wildcats in each 
of the past five meetings. The 
teams have a history of close 
matches, though, with six of 
the past 10 confrontations 
l>eing decided by four [joints or 

Delaware thrashed West 
Chester (Division 11) last week, 
jumping out to a 3r)-0 lead 
before winning 49 21. The Blue 
Hens rushed for 42,1 yards, 
including \'A4 on just eight 
carries by senior Pat Williams. 


This matchup marks the 
first confernece game for either 
team and gives Villanova's 
Andy Talley his third shot at 
Ixxoming 'Nova's all-time winn- 
ingest coach.

said Talley. "When he comes out

time the Wildcat defense held 
tough on a dramatic fourth and- 
one stand. 

"I thought our defense did a 
magnificent job," said Talley. 

In fact, the Wildcat defense 
forced six fumbles, four of which 
it recovered, and snatched two 
interceptions. The game, which 
left both offenses lamenting 
spoiled opportunities, included 10 
fumbles, 45 incomplete passes, 
two blocked extra points and one 
blocked field goal. Both teams, 
neither of which had practiced in 
rain this season, believed the 
game time conditions — heavy 
rain and 20 mile an hour winds 
— affected their play. 

Additionally, both offenses 
stumbled largely in part to their 
depleted starting lineups. The 
Terriers had suspended their top 
two running backs (and accord 
ingly recorded only 1.6 yards per 
rush) and the Wildcats lost both 
Cowsette and superstar receiver 
Brian Finneran to injuries in the 
first quarter. 

"Those are our two franchise 
players on offense," said Talley. 

Preliminary evaluations pro- 
jected both players to miss any- 
where from two to four weeks. 

"That's just not good," said 
Talley. "That's just not good at 

Talley, who appeared frustrated 
by the heartbreaking loss, knows 
the team must bounce back for its 
next two opponents: Delaware 
and James Madison. 

"We have mindfields to go 
through in the next two weeks," 
said Talley. "I can't really worry 
about anyone being a head case "

Women drop two matches 



.S7(^^/ lufxirf, r 

With a iifw coach and a new 
l(X)k to the lint'up on tht- court, 
the wunitMi's tennis team kicked 
off its season last Friday against 
Loyola College. With three of their 
SIX major starters on the sidehnes 
due to health and eligibility rea- 
sons, the Cats ttxjk on a ready 
Ix)yola team for the home opener. 
Though the fresh squad registered 
its first loss of the season (7-2), 
the players put on a spectacular 
display of tennis. 

First-year player Julie Bonner 
took to the court for her first 
collegiate game in the No. 1 
position for the squad. Frilling the 
spot left by graduate Kelly Barnes, 
Bonner, a product of the Hun 
School in Princeton and former 
prep school state champion, came 
into her first match as a Wildcat 
"tough and ready to play," said 
Associate Head Coach Stan 
Phelps. Rolling over Loyola's 

Bridget Madden in her first set, 
Bonner cut it close in the second 
set, then pulled away at the end 
to jjost her first collegiate win, 6- 
0, 7-5. 

"Julie played unlx'lievable ten 
nis, and showed a lot of maturity 
for her first match." Phelps said. 
"Hopefully she'll keep playing the 
way she's Ix'en playing." 

A pair of st rong doubles players, 
juniors Kara Main and Chris 
Grasso, were (xcupying the No. 3 
doubles spot as 'Nova registered 
the second of two match wins 
against Loyola. Combining their 
efforts and talent, the two t(X)k an 
early edge in their match to post 
an H-3 victory for the Cats. 

The squad had only a day to rest 
as they took on Mount St. Mary's 
in a home match last Saturday. 
With only five of the six starters 
intact. Mount St. Mary's was 
forced to default one singles and 
one doubles match to the Cats, 
giving 'Nova an early advantage. 
The Cats could not hold back the 
visiting squad, though. Winning 

in only the No. 5 singles position, 
the Cats fell to Mount St. Mary's. 

Consistently improving on her 
personal record for the Cats, No. 
5 singles player, junior (irasso, 
romped her opponent. Cracking 
her opponent's serve three times 
in both sets, she took both in 
identical fashion, 6-1, 6-1. 

"I feel really confident with 
myself and with this team," said 
senior captain Tina Fiore. 
"There's a real cohesion among 
us, and we all work well 

"We're a young team and will 
be gaining experience as the 
season progresses," said Head 
Coach Bob Batman. "Right now, 
we have to stay healthy so that 
we can get back and ready for the 
season and the Big East Cham- 
pionships in the spring." 

Next up for the 'Nova's tennis 
team will be the West Virginia 
Tournament this weekend. 

Ice Cats adopt new attitude 


Assistant Sports Editor 

Respect through dedication and 
hard work. This is what new ice 
hockey Head Coach Todd Sharinn 
brings to Villanova and hopes to 
inject into his players. 

"What I like to do is instill some 
pride in a place that we haven't 
had it in the past," said Sharinn. 

Sharinn comes to Villanova 
with a diverse hockey background. 
During the 1994-95 season, he 
served as an assistant coach of the 
varsity women's ice hockey pro- 
gram at Yale University. Sharinn 
was also head coach of the Omaha 
Gladiators of the Iowa High School 
H(xkey League in the fall of 1994. 
As a player, he was team captain 
of the Pasadena Lightning in the 
Pacific Southwest Hockey 

At Villanova, Sharinn hopes to 
continue his success with his 
primary fcKus on raising the level 
of play on the ice. He hopes to 
instill his philosophy of hard work 
and dedication into his team, 
demanding that his players be 
prepared for every game and every 
(X)ssible situation. 

"I would like to think that 
everylxxfy will step their game up 
at least two to three notches and 
the difference will be noticeable," 
stated Sharinn. "They're going to 
walk off the ice as winners after 
every game, which is something 
I don't think any of them felt last 

Only then does he tielieve the 

team will receive the respect they 

"I think they're ready to take 
the next step and to act like a 
varsity program and start per 
forming like one." 

However, Sharinn realizes that 
when there is change, some time 
is needed for adjustment. 

"I think they were a bit uncom- 
fortable at first because it was 
something new to them," he said. 
"But I think that they've been 
responding well " 

After the adjustment period, 
though, the team got right to 
work. The IceCats are currently 
holding daily workouts of weigh 
tliftingand running, so that when 
the season starts in November 
they can be ready for any 

"We're working a lot harder," 
said ECAC 1994-95 Rookie of-the 
Year Bruce Lorange. "The condi 
tioning is extremely intense. 
Everyone is responding well and 

the new attitude is spreading. I 
think we're looking at a really big 

Last year the IceCats finished 
11-13 (6-8, 4th in the ECAC South), 
short of a birth in the ECAC 
playoffs. However, anything short 
of a playoff birth this year will 
be a disappointment. 

"If they go 11-13 this year, 
they're not going to want to see 
me in the spring," stated Sharinn. 

The players agree, and they 
have been working hard, dedicat- 
ing time and effort so that they 
may accomplish theirgoals during 
the season. Their dedication 
shows in their attitudes. 

"We want to be in the best 
condition we can," said Lorange. 
"Our goal, as always, is to win 
the ECAC South Division. I think 
it is closer this year than it has 
ever been. With the attitude that 
the Coach has and the players 
have, I think there is almost a 
rebirth of dedication here."

Volleyball improves record in Maryland Invitational 


Sta/f Reporter 

After a disappointing start to 
the season, the women's volleyball 
team bounced back this week by 
finishing second in the Maryland 
Invitational, winning three of four 
matches to bring their record to 

Unlike last season, when the 
Cats won their first ten matches 
against weak competition, this 
year the Cats were unable to 
capture a win in their first four 
matches due to the strength of 
their schedule. As a result, 'Nova 
found itself in desperate need of 
a couple wins when they comp)eted 
at the Maryland Invitational. 

To Head Coach Ron Twomey's 
delight, the Wildcats responded 
remarkably as they defeated Wil 
Ham & Mary and Connecticut. 
The Cats then won their regular 
season opener against Lafayette. 

The Cats kicked off the Mary 
land Invitational in desperate 
need of a win by going up against 
William & Mary (0-3). Not only 
were the Cats winless heading 
into the match, but they also were 
facing the same team that had 
ended their ten game winning 
streak in five sets last season. 

Furthermore, Villanova had never 
defeated William & Mary. 

Like last year, this year's match 
went into the fifth .set. However, 
to the Cats' satisfaction, this year 
'Nova prevailed in the fifth and 
final set (15-6, 12 15, 15-12, 8 15. 
15 11). The trio of sophomores 
Marisa Davidson, Stacy Evans 
and Kara Meier led the way as 
they combined for a total of 51 
kills. Also providing a major 
contribution was freshman 
Megan O'Brien, who had 31 digs. 

With their first win under their 
belt, the Cats next had to face 
tournament host Maryland. After 
winning the first set handily, the 
Cats collapsed and lost the next 
three sets (10-15, 6-15, 9-15) to a 
good Maryland squad (3-3). 

In their final game of the tour- 
nament the Cats faced league-foe 
IJConn. Last year, the Huskies 
romped the Cats in three sets. 
Early in the match this year, it 
appeared that the Cats were in for 
another beating as they easily lost 
the first set, 15-7. In the second 
set, the Cats fell behind 13-6 and 
thus were only two points and one 
set away from falling to a helpless 
1-6 record. However, the resilient 
Wildcats stormed back and cap- 
tured the second set by winning

in five sets (7 15, 15-13, 1215, 15-

"That was a huge win," stated 
Twomey. "They're ranked third 
in the [Big East| conference and 
we beat them." 

As a result of their terrific 
comeback, Villanova came away 
winning two out of its three 
matches against stiff competition, 
good enough to finish second. 
Davidson and Evans were both 
named to the All-Tournament 
team. I^ne senior Can Clawsfjn 
provided the necessary leadership 
for this young team. 

"Cari was all over the court 
doing a gcnxl job running our

great leader."

Nova defeated Lafayette easily m 
three sets (15-1, 15-3, 15-12). As 
a result, the Cats now have a mini 
two-game winning streak. Al 
though the winning streak does 
not seem like much, it could 
extend for the Cats as it apf)ears 
that they have gone through the 
valleys and are now heading for 

the peaks. 

"We feel that this is the best 
team we've had at Villanova," 
said Twomey. "This team is going 
to scare jXM>ple "

of winning the George Mason

tournament, the Cats will go up 
against Delaware, Oklahoma and

"Ultimately, we are going to 
succeed, " said Twomey. 

Field hockey remains optimistic 
depsite pair of tough losses 


' Sta/f Reporter 

The Wildcat field hockey team 
has gotten off to a bumpy but 
promising start this year. Its 
current record stands at 1-2 and 
Head Coach Joanie Milhous be 
lieves that no one should write 
them off because this team is 
loaded with talent. 

The women were defeated in 
their home opener Friday, Sept. 
8 against nationally ranked Ohio 
State, 3-1. Despite the loss, Mil- 
hous felt they played extremely 

"Ohio State is ranked third in 
the country and we hung tight 
with them the whole game. " said 

In fact, Villanova started off 
with some offensive punch when 
junior Nina Berrilini scored the 
first goal of the game barely five 
minutes into the first half. IJnfor 
tunately, OSIJ would return with 
three unanswered goals in that 
same period. The second half was 
as tight, 'Nova kept Ohio State 
from scoring, but just could not 
put it in the net either. Freshman 

standout goalie Sarah Wiggin had 
an impressive nine saves for the 
day against a very aggressive 
OSU frontline. 

'Nova's second game was even 
sweeter as they conquered Rich 
mond on Sunday, Sept. 10,_3 1. 
Junior Clieryl Roflenbacher 
started the scoring with a goal 
right at the beginning of the first 
period. Assisted by senior sweeper 
Kristen Hurt, Berritini followed 
up with her second goal of the 
season nineteen minutes later. 
Junior Cherilyn Sackal would 
close out the scoring for Vl^ with 
an insurance goal early in the 
second half as she was assisted 
by senior midfielder Teri Galanti. 
Despite Villanova's offensive dom 
ination throughout the game, 
Richmond's Cindy Demiro was 
able to pop the ball in the net with 
5:22 remaining, preventing Wig 
gin from recording her first career 

After two excellent outings over 
the weekend, the Wildcats let 
down a little bit Tuesday evening, 
losing to University of Pennsylva 
niam. 2 1. Hurt led the team with 

the lone goal. Special mention 
goes out to junior forwards Jill 
Basile and Sackal. midfielder 
Galanti, and sweeper Hurt who 
have all played solidly over the 
course of the past three games. 

Coach Mi.lhous is wxtY excited 
alx)ut the rest of the season. 

"'These girls have a lot, a lot, 
a lot of talent." said Milhous. "It 
just all needs to come together. 
Right now we just need to believe 
in ourselves more than anything." 
Milhous believes that Villanova 
field hockey is going to surprise 
a lot of teams this year. She 
commented that most teams have 
counted them out already, but 
that might not besuchagocxi idea. 
Villanova is off to a strong start 
this fall and, with a little confi- 
dence, might just tiose as a poten- 
tial threat in the Big East this fall.

Wildcats roll over to Terriers, 21 -1 6 


Sfwrts Editor 

When it came crunch time, the 
'Nova defense buckled. 

After keeping; the Boston llni 
versity offense in check for the 
Ix'tter part of 57 minutes, the 
Wildcats gave up three big plays 
to blow a one-point lead m the 
final minute of the game. 

"Maybe we were tired and a 
little worn down, but that's no 
excuse," said linebacker A.J. 

Villanova had just taken the 
lead on Josh Dolbin's leaping 
catch, 16 15, with just under four 
minutes remaining. The Wildcats, 
who had battled back from a 15- 
3 deficit, appeared poised to pull 
off the upset. 

But Boston quarterback Kevin 
Foley, a transfer from the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, came out firing. 
Startmg from his own 25 yard 
line, he marched his squad to 
victory with a 16-play drive that 
took just over three minutes^ 

Foley 's passmg on the drive was 
erratic as he went 6-for-16, but he 
hit the open man when it counted. 
Twice he kept the drive going 
with completions on 4th-and-10 
situations on nearly identical 
patterns to the left sideline. Foley 
escaped a drive-ending situation 
again as one of his passes, touched 
by three different Wildcat defend- 

ers, fell harmlessly incomplete 
Finally, the junior quarterback 
found senior receiver Ron Ste 
phenson cutting across the middle 
for a 21 yard touchdown with 43 
seconds remaining in the game. 

"They came with a blitz and we 
saw that the last couple of plays," 
said Stephenson. "We planned to 
run a 'hot' pattern over the middle 
and it was wide open." 

Indeed, the 'Nova defense had 
blitzed on three consecutive plays. 

"We made a commitment to 
blitz," said Villanova Head Coach 
Andy Talley. "You're playing 
with fire when you do that." 

'Nova stopped Boston's two- 
point conversion attempt, keeping 
the score at 21-16. Foley, whose 
brother was a standout at Boston 
College, finished 31-of-56 for 308 
yards and two touchdowns. 

Villanova's final drive, which 
included a seven yard pass over 
the middle that ate up valuable 
seconds, ended as the Terriers 
intercepted Marchese's hail mary 
pass OD the final play of the game. 

While 'Nova ultimately came up 
short, the team's comeback from 
a 12 point fourth quarter deficit 
was impressive. The Wildcat's 
first touchdown came with just 
under nine minutes remaining in 
the game as quarterback Tom 
Marchese snuck in from the one 
yardline. Dolbin had set up the 
score by making a diving catch 

Lappas given 1999-2000 
contract extension 

Villanova's men's basketball 
coach, Steve Lappas, has been 
given a contract extension 
through the 1999-2(KK) season, 

"Steve has done an outstand 
ingjobat Villanova," DeFilippo 
said. "We wanted to extend his 
contract and insure that he will 
remain at Villanova long into 
the future." 

Lappas is only the fourth 
Villanova men's basketball 
coach in the past 59 years and 

the seventh since the program 
was established in 1920. Lap- 
pas has compiled a record of 53- 
39, including back-to-back 20- 
win seasons. Over the past 50 
games, he has recorded a mark 
of 39-11. 

Last season, Lappas coached 
the Wildcats to a 25-8 overall 
record, including the Big East 
Tournament Championship 
and a No. 9 ranking in the AP

inside Boston's five yardline. 
Earlier in the game, Dolbin had 
provided the most exciting offen- 
sive highlight as he leapt up and 
over a Terrier defender to acro- 
batically haul in a 46 yard pass. 

Dolbin continued his exhibition 
as he capped the Wildcats' go- 
ahead drive, pulling in a Marchese ' 
fade pass in the right corner of 
the endzone. The drive, which 
began at 'Nova's own 17 yardline, 
was a testimony to 'Nova's im- 
proved offensive line as it consist 
ently opened up large holes for 
fullback Gary Dennis and fresh 
man tailback Todd Golemi to run 

"Our offensive line did a great 
job of opening up some nice big 
holes," said Marchese, who was 
sacked only once all game. "We 
had some nice runs and some nice 

Unfortunately. Villanova's late 
offensive rally was not enough. 
Too many missed opportunities 
and expensive turnovers had 
stymied the Cats' attack for three 

"I basically said some guys on 
offense needed to step up a little 
bit more early, and they really 
didn't." said Talley. 

The trouble started on the very 
first play from scrimmage as 
tailback Anthony Cowsette 
fumbled. The Terriers recovered 
it at 'Nova's 20 yardline and 
punched the ball in six plays later. 
The second Wildcat possession 
mimicked the first as Cowsette, 
attempting to atone for his first 
fumble, lost seven yards and 
fumbled again. 

"Anthony Cowsette is being 

counted on to carry our offense,"

Water polo ranked No. 1 5, 
poised for run at NCAA's 




Sports Editor 

The Villanova men's water polo 
team has not yet bt^gun its regular 
season campaign, but its presea 
son form has impressed opposing 
coaches enough to earn the squad 
a No. 15 national ranking, its 
highest ever. The Cats, who

victory over Princeton and the

fought, come from behind wins. 

Senior captain and goaltender 
B<'n Igoe said he was very excited 
alx)ut how this team has come 
together over the past two years. 

as well as the team's chances to 
qualify for NCAA tournament 

"The team is finally starting to 
mesh," Igoe said. "This is the best 
team Villanova has ever had. This 
IS the first year we have a legit 
imate shot for the NCAA's." 

Igoe is one of the seven reasons 
why the Cats may reach their 
goal. Regarded as one of the best 
goalies in the Fast , Ben's instincts 
and infamous reach keep opix)sing 
offenses in check. Also, as captain, 
his enthusiasm for the game is 
said to be contagious. 

"Ben brings an intensity to the 
team which raises everyone's 
level of play," said Head Coach 
Dan Sharadin. 

Among the other starting six, 
the high scoring tandem of junior 
Jamie Randall and sophomore 
Darren Hardel will head up the 
offense. Randall, at 6-6, 210 
pounds was named along with 
Hardel (6-3, 270) to the All East 
Second Team last sea.son. Both 
will be counted on to continue 
their goal scoring ways, but Ran 

dall will also he I(K)ke(i to on the 
defensive side to keep opjKising 
centers at bay. Rounding out the 
offense is one of the East's strong- 
est outside shooters in juni(»r 
Marcus San ford. 

Defensively, the Cats' Dave 
Prusakowski and f-Jrian Scull are 
among the team's b<>st drivers. 
However, the two juniors will 
have to step it up even more this 
season with the loss of Tom 
Tracey whose speed and counter- 
attack prowess will be missed. 

"Losing Tom will certainly 
weaken our counterattack and 
force us to rely more on ball 
control and excellent team de- 
fense, " said Coach Sharadin. 
"However, with the players we 
have returning, we should b<' able 
to adjust quickly." 

Judging by this week's standing 
in the polls, the Cats seem to have 
already adjusted. 'Nova takes on 
two nationally ranked opponents 
tomorrow at the duPont Pool. The 
team will play Bucknell (No. 21) 
at 11:.30 a.m. and Slippery Rock

New Homecoming plans target drinking 


The Homecoming Committee 
announced plans last week for the 
1995 Homecoming Weekend in- 
cluding several strict policies 
initiated to combat underage 
drinking. New restrictions were 
designed to comply with the law 
and to prevent the accidents and 
vandalism caused by alcohol 
abuse. Other plans were made to 
accommodate the great number of 
people expected to attend the 

Villanova students who wish to 
attend the picnic on Sheehan Field 
will be forced to show their 
Wildcard. In order to gain access 
to the "Over 21" area, students 
must present a Wildcard which 
will show proof of age. Beer may 
be purchased at $2 per cup in the 
"Over 21" area but may not be 

carried from this picnic area. All 
students under 21 years of age will 
be permitted into the regular 
"Student/Young Alumni Picnic" 

Wildcards will also be used as 
proof of identity of a Villanova 
student. Students from other 
schools or individuals with no 
connection to the University will 
not be permitted into the "Stu- 
dent/Young Alumni Picnic." 

Radnor Police will be present to 
assist the Public Safety Depart 
ment. They have the authority to 
apprehend and arrest any individ- 
ual who appears to be posing as 
a personal threat or a threat to 
others. Individuals possessing 
counterfeit identification may 
face arrest and prosecution by the 
Radnor Police. 

The Homecoming Picnic begins 
at 11 a.m. while the football team 
kicks-off against the University of 

Connecticut at 1 p.m. Live music 
will be present at Sheehan Field. 

The new restrictions come as 
a surprise to most students but 
were necessary according to 
members of the administration. 
"The reality of it is, when you are 
aware of underage drinking going 
on on your property," said dean 
of Students, Rev. John P. Stack, 
OS. A., "you are as responsible as 
if you actually furnished the 
alcohol to the minor. 

"Our goal is to have a respon 
sible celebration where we don't 
have all of the problems from 
alcohol abuse," Stack said. 

Estimates made by students 
assisting the Homecoming Com 
mittee strongly suggest that the 
population at the event is severely 
swelled by guests of Villanova 
students. The administration 
believes that many people visiting 
as friends have no investment in

enjoy all the activities we offer 
There is something for every 
one in the family. Our main 
focus was to ensure that fam

with their sons and daughters 
at Villanova University. We 
want the parents to have a good 
feeling about where they've 
sent their kids," said Farmer. 


The Office of Student Development, tfie CampuN Activities Team and the Blue Key Society have 
prepared a series of activities for the University's annual Parents' Weekend, which is set to beflin 

the people or property of the 
University which has also led to 

Villanova administrators are 
hoping the focal point of Home 
coming will move away from 
drinking. "The focal point had 
clearly become drinking," said 
Stack. "The large portion of 
undergraduates had no great 
interest in the fact that graduates 
were returning to campus. It was 
a day for them to drink unlike any 
other day." 

The numerous changes made 
for Homecoming 1995 have al 
ready faced a great deal of crit 
icism from undergraduates. While 
most students agree the Univer 
sity has a vested interest in 
securing its well being, they are 

critical of the administration, 
claiming the changes are extreme 
and detrimental to the spirit of the 

"The University needs to be 
very careful not to go to the other 
extreme," said junior Arts Senator 
Peter Acton. "We're not dealing 
with rabid beasts that need to be 
separated and corralled in order 
to maintain order. 1 hope Home 
coming can be safe, but 1 hope it 
can be fun too." 

Stack added, "Nobody's family 
that I know of or have met that 
would have been out on that field 
last year would have run a com- 
parable size party on their own 
property, but somehow they ex- 
pect us to allow the same thing 
to happen here." 

Ticket distribution 
options considered 


Editor i» Chief 

The Athletic Department and 
Student Government were hoping 
to finalize the 1995% student 
ticket plan for the men's basket 
ball season bv this week hut 
nothing permanent has been pre- 
pared. President of Student Gov 
ernment Michael O'Brien and 
President of the Basketball Club. 
Bob Nashak, presented Director of 
Athletics (iene DeFilippo and 
Director of Ticket Operations 
Vince Nicastro with three ticket 
proposals in the last two weeks. 

'Our goal IS to make it as fair 
as fXjssible and as operationally 
easy as possible for the {xv)ple who 
will Ix' distributing the tickets, " 
said Nicastro. 

The Athletic Department and 
Student (iovernment believed 
they would be able to resolve a 
ticket plan this week, but Tut^sday 
night's Basketball Club meeting 
terminated those plans Nashak 
believes approximately 600 stu 
dents were in attendance. This 
turnout might force the number 
of season tickets being offered to 
Ih' increased. 

.Nicastro believed last year's 
(listribiition plan was successful, 
howt v<r. he is working with 
DtFilipix), Student Government 
aiui the Basketball Club to refine 
the system. 

"I thought it went fairly well 
!;tsi vear." Nicastro said. "By the 
' iid ot the year we had ironed out 
lime of the operational problems 
making it faster for the students 
loget in and out." 

The biggest concern surround-

Lecturer refutes traditional family myth 

Alternative family structures 
evolve to meet modern needs 


News Editor 

A lecture on "The Myth ot the 
Traditional Family" was pres- 
ented by l.inda Nicholson, a pro 
lessor from the State University 
of New York at Albany, on Sept. 
15. The presentation was part of 
the lecture series in feminist 
philosophy sponsored by the phi 
losophy department. 

Nichohson said her purpose was 
to undermine the conventional 
distinction between traditional 
and alternative family structures. 
"The world would be better off if 
we did not have it," she said. The 
distinction is problematic from 
historical, moral and political 
perspectives, she added. 

"What we call the traditional 
family is only a little blip in 
history," said Nicholson. She 
explained this by saying that 
family forms continuously change 
over time, evolving to meet differ 
ent kinds of historical situations. 
For example, families in 17th 
century Europe were arranged 
along economic lines. Marriages 
were used to consolidate property, 
and the husband served as 
guardian over his household 
which included servants as well 
as family members, she said. 

As a consequence of the Indus- 
trial Revolution, emotional rea 
sons became much more impor 
tant in the pairing of husband and 
wife, said Nicholson. During the 
19th century, the beginnings of 

the nuclear family emerged, and 
the "Victorian ideal of a proper 
family" was invented. But she 
added that this ideal vision did not 
tx'comea mass phenomenon in the 
United States until after World 
War n. She said the nation's 
economic Ixxjm coupled with in 
creased government spending 
allowed the idea of the traditional 
family to flourish. "I find it very 
ironical today when there's this 
talk of big government as the bad 
guy," she said. 

The people of the 1950s expe- 
rienced this family form as some- 
thing new, said Nicholson, calling 
it the "Ozzie and Harriet ideal." 
She claimed that this ideal "rested 
on some very shaky foundations," 
and it was undermined by the 
steady increase of divorce and by 
the trend of women entering the 
work force in large numbers. 
Families in which the wife worked 
were seen as unnatural, but as it 

became more common "we |were| 
subtly altering our version of 
what counts as a traditional 
family," she added. 

Morally, it is problematic to 
make a distincti(jn between tra- 
ditional and alternative families, 
Nicholson said. "You lan't have 
middle class families without 
middle class jobs," she said, 
claiming that one needs to look at 
a family's situation before judging 
It. Traditional families can make 
children too dependent on a lim 
ited number of adults. Also, the 
traditional family creates "time 
pressures... [that] fall dispropor- 
tionately on women," she said. 

"We need to recognize that the 
traditional family is becoming a 
museum piece," said Nicholson. It 
is necessary to realize that the 
traditional family is only one 
particular family type that is not 
working for a large number of

Senate approves 
welfare reform 

Washington — The Senate 
overwhelmingly passed a wel- 
fare bill that ends the federal 
government's 60-year-old 
promise to guarantee poor 
families monthly payments. 
The vote, taken Sept. 19, re- 
flects a change in the country's 
financial priorities and would 
change the rules for a welfare 
system that serves 14 million 

The bill, which was passed 
87-12, would send a fixed 
amount of money to states to 
attempt what many legislators 
say the federal government has 
not done — help poor families 
become self-sufficient. Families 
would no longer be able to get 
benefits indefinitely. The plan 
would limit total eligibility to 
five years over the course of a 
lifetime. After two years of 
assistance, mothers with de- 
pendent children must start 
working or training for jobs. 

The Congressional Budget 
Office estimated that the bill 

would save about $70 billion, 
but compromises have reduced 
that amount. 

Bosnian -Croat 
alliance decides 
to halt advance 

Bosnia — Under strong pres- 
sure from the United States, 
the Moslem-dominated Bos- 
nian government and its Croa- 
tian allies said that they would 
halt their successful sweep 
through western and central 
Bosnia. If carried out, the 
pledge would still mean the 
alliance has seized an esti- 
mated 1 ,300 square miles from 
Bosnian Serbs over the last 

The well-coordinated attack 
along three fronts has become 
the biggest offensive since the 
beginning of the Bosnian war. 
Despite the promise of a halt, 
fighting continued. Bosnian 
Moslem forces said they had 
not yet consolidated gains 
made when they thrust out of 
the formerly surrounded Bihac 

U.S. and British officials 
have urged that the offensive 

be stopped because, they say, 
it risks ending a U.S. -led initi- 
ative that has brought the 
Balkans closer to peace than at 
any time since 1991. They fear 
that a complete collapse of the 
Bosnian Serb war machine will 
push President Slobodan Milo- 
sevic of neighboring Serbia to 
enter the fighting. 

Gunshot victim 
dies; nurse 
protest blamed 

Los Angeles — A gunshot 
victim died after he was turned 
away from County-USC Med- 
ical Center when emergency 
room nurses staged a sick-out 
to protest budget cuts. Doctors 
said the unidentified man 
might have survived had he 
been treated at the hospital's 
trauma center. He, instead, 
was taken to White Memorial 
Medical Center, which does not 
have a trauma center. 

Los Angeles County govern 
ment, facing a $1.6 billion 
budget deficit, issued 6,700 
layoff, demotion and transfer 
notices to county health 
workers last week. The nurses 

walked out of work to protest 
these cuts. The emergency 
room staffing levels returned 
to normal after the incident. 

Fairley killings 
occurred in store 

Collegeville — Lisa Marie 
Manderach and her 19-month- 
old daughter, Devon, were 
killed inside the children's 
clothing store where Caleb 
Fairley worked, law enforce- 
ment authorities have con- 
cluded. "We are now as con- 
vinced as we could ever be that 
the murders occurred in Col- 
legeville," Montgomery County 
First Assistant District Attor- 
ney Bruce L. Castor said yes- 
terday. Castor refused to reveal 
why police have placed the 
murders at the store, saving 
that information for the preli- 
minary hearing. 

Fairley, 21, is accused of 
killing Manderach and her 
daughter when they stopped at 
the store on Sept. 10. Since the 
incident, investigators have 
searched the store. Your Kidz

Barry remembered 
with NROTC exhibit 

September 22, 1995 • THE VILLANOVAN • Page 3 


Assistant News Editor 

The University's Naval ROTC 
program is hosting an exhibit 
titled "Commodore John Barry, 
Father of the American Navy — 
The Naval Tradition Continues at 
Villanova." The display is located 
on the second floor of Falvey 
Memorial Library to commemo- 
rate the 250th anniversary of the 
birth of this naval hero. 

"John Barry was a naval officer 
during the Revolutionary War and 
a very early United States naval 
officer," said Capt. Michael R. 
Tollefson, USN Commanding 
Officer of Villanova NROTC. "He 
[Barry] was an Irish-Catholic who 
lived in Philadelphia and was a 
friend of the city's Augustinians," 
he said. Barry donated $150 to the 
Church, "which was a princely 
sum in those days," added 

This exhibit is the first major 
retrospective of Barry's life and 
contributions since the 1930s 
when many of his artifacts were 
on display at the Philadelphia 
Museum of Art, prior to their 
auction in New York. The major 
ity of Barry's artifacts are now 
owned by the Independence Sea 
port Museum in Philadelphia and 
the New York Historical Society 
in Manhattan. 

When the University decided to 
honor the anniversary of Barry's 
birth, "these two organizations 
donated pieces to Villanova under 
the condition that they be guarded 
at all times," said Tollefson. 
Consequently, the University has 
arranged for Public Safety officers 

to guard the display from 8 a.m. 
until 4 p.m. Villanova's NROTC 
program provides two midship- 
men guards for the remainder of 
the library's working hours. 
"Shifts are as short as two hours 
and as long as four hours," said 

"There has always been a 
natural connection between the 
Navy and the Augustinians of 
Philadelphia," said Tollefson. 
This led to the naming of the 
University's John Barry Hall as 
well as this recent tribute to the 
naval officer. During World War 
II, "the University almost went 
under because most of the student 
body was off fighting and there 
weren't enough tuition funds," he 
said. The University was saved 
when the Navy opened a boot 
camp on campus which was 
shortly followed by the present 
Villanova NROTC program. "Dur- 
ing the 1960s there was much 
controversy over whether or not 
the Navy went along with Catholic 
traditions," Tollefson added. It 
was decided that it did, and many 
high ranking naval officials have 
since come out of Villanova. 

The library exhibit consists of 
valuable documents, such as 
maps and commissions signed by 
John Hancock and George Wash- 
ington, as well as paintings, Barry 
family heirlooms, original uniform 
pieces and a historical unit of the 
Villanova NROTC program. The 
display, which took almost one 
year of planning, "is intended to 
provide students with historical 
exposure and cultural aware 
ness," said Tollefson. This tribute 
will run until Dec. 5. 

Basketball ticket plan 
under scrutiny 

(Continued from page 1) 
dents would be willing to stand 
in line for one day to get tickets. 
But only the fans who truly want 
to see a game will be willing to 
stand in line for more than one 

The ticket plan the Athletic 
Department and Student Govern 
ment will most likely settle on is 
very similar to last season's. 
Again, no final decisions have 
been made but there will probably 
be two distributions for the games 
at duPont Pavilion, one for Big 
Five games, one for games at the 
CoreStates Spectrum and one for 

senior night. Senior night will be 
on the last game of the season at 
the CoreStates Spectrum and will 
allow seniors to receive tickets 
prior to other students. 

No matter what plan is insti- 
tuted, there will be an overnight 
camp out for tickets tentatively 
scheduled for Nov. 4-5. It has not 
been decided how many season 
tickets will be distributed at this 
time but the number will be 
greater than the amount given out 
last season. Also, exhibition games 
will be given out on a first-come- 
first-serve basis. 


An exhibit honoring Commodore John Barry will be displayed in the library until Dec. 5. 
Midshipmen stand guard in accordance with donating museums' conditions. 

New recycling plan combats waste 


Staff Reporter 

Newman & Son, a Philadelphia 
company, signed a contract with 
the University that will increase 
the amount of paper being recycled 
from about four percent to 35 
percent. The new program was 
changed to include colored paper, 
newspaper, junk mail, envelopes, 
notebooks, text books, telephone 
books, file folders and sticky post 
it pads. Now all paper is recyclable 
except paper that is plastic-coated 
or contaminated with food or 
waste. It was necessary for the 
school to purchase a new recycling 
truck for the increased amount of 

Superintendent of Grounds 
Kevin O'Donnell is the recylcing 
coordinator who organized recy- 
cling as a team program during 
this past summer. Everyone in- 
volved with this project is hopeful 
that it will increase the amount 
of recycling that takes place on 
campus because it is now easier 
to recycle. Instead of worrying 
about separating all the paper, it 
can all be thrown together. 

"All students have to re 
member," said recycling intern 
Sue Davidson, "is that the blue 
bins are for mixed paper. If stu- 
dents associate blue with paper, 
then recycHng will be very easy." 

Newman & Son takes the paper 
collected from Villanova to its 
plant, grinds it in a blender-like 

machin^pyid uses it to make paper 
board for paper pads. 

A contest was conducted among 
faculty members through campus 
e-mail to create a slogan for the 
new program. The Rev. Shawn 
Tracy, O.S.A., won for his slogan 
"Villanova Recycling: What Goes 
Around Comes Around." 

The new project is working out 
very well and the students are 

^poperating because now that 
people are throwing in paper that 
could not be taken before" recy- 
cling is just easier, said Davidson. 
There is a "certain level of con- 
tamination because of items such 
as paper plates with food remains 
which cannot be recycled." But on 
the whole, the results are pleasing 
and the program has been quite 

Freshman seminars tield 
for student-athletes 


Student -athletes participate in the Super Study Skills for Success program. Four information 
sessions were offered concerning study skills, test -taking strategies and time management. 


Senior Reporter 

The Student Athletic Advisory 
Committee hosted its freshman 
academic seminars for the fall 
season. The Super Study Skills 
for Success program, which was 
organized by Larry Shane, coor 
dinator of Administrative Services 
Athletics, and the captains of 
various athletic teams, offers 
freshman athletes information 
concerning study skills, test 
taking strategies and time man 
agement. Four sessions, each one 
hour, are offered to the student 
athletes this year. 

The session encourages stu 
dents not only to be aggressive on 
the court, but also to be aggressive 
in the classr(X)m, said Professor 
Wm. Ray Heitzmann, Ph.D., vol 
unteer guest speaker. "My em 
phasis is to have as many student- 
athletes become All-Academic Big 
East or All Academic Yankee 
Conference. My emphasis is not 
just eligibility. I want them to 
maximize their academic talent.s 
as well as their athletic talents," 
he said. The seminars are based 
on the teachings of Heitzmann, a 
University faculty member and 
the author of 25 lxx)ks and over 
150 articles. He has garnered his 
theories from many years of 
coaching and teaching at the 
elementary, secondary and colle 
giate levels. 

Heitzmann begins his program 
with the observation that "stu 
dents that do well in school do so 
because they have devel()p<'d sue 
cessful study skills." HeadvrK atcs 
numerous th(X)nes on how to im 
prove the overall success of stu 
dents. Students who sit in the 
back of the classroom are at a 
disadvantage. "If you're in the 
'victory zone' (the area in the front 
of the classroom and emanating 
outwards toward the sides] you'll 
be more in^ijned to talk in class 

and get to know the professor," 
said Tina Sabunas, student- 
athlete program assistant. Heitz- 
mann stresses the idea that pro- 
fessors, in their lectures, directly 
relate the important information 
that should be transcribed into 
the notebook. He does not advocate 
writing down everything the 
professor says. In doing so, stu 
dents would concentrate all their 
effort on note-taking and would 
neglect listening. On the contrary, 
he suggests listening for clues 
that the professor gives concern- 
ing t he importance of information. 
"The teacher, in his or her manner 
of instruction, will tell you what 
IS important," said Doug Nevins, 
student athlete program assist 
ant. For instance, when a teacher 
repeats the information more 
than once or writes it on the 
blackboard, it should be written. 
Clues such as these help students 
determine what to write and 
allows more time for listening. 
"You should study your teacher 
like you study your opponent," 
Heitzmann said. 

In the area of test taking Heitz- 
mann stresses planning. After 
taking the first test in a class, 
students can predict the next test. 
"It's just like after you've played 
a basketball team once already 
You know who's going to sh(K)t 
three' pointers and you know who 
will ;x)st up," Heit/mann said. 
Students should have a game plan 
prior to taking a test "The key 
IS to get a g(K)d night's sleep, just 
so that your mind is clear You'll 
do better. You want to sue ceed," 
he said. 

"The seminar is extremely 
valuable to these first year stu 
dents. Had I attended one my 
freshmen year, it would have 
helped my (iPA immenselv, " said 
Nevins "If they |the student- 
athletes) leave here with only one 
of the tips we've provided, then 
we've done our job."

Keep Jake Nevin's 
Fieldhouse as is 

As students, many of us have never had the pleasure 
of knowing the late John "Jake" Nevin. Yet somehow it 
is easy to feel as if we do know him. During his 36 years 
as the Wildcats' head athletic trainer, he epitomized 
Villanova athletics and was a wonderful representative 
of the entire University. 

The Villanova Fieldhouse was renamed the Jake 
Nevin Fieldhouse on Nov. 22, 1985, to honor the long- 
time trainer thousands had grown to love. To many, even 
this tribute was not enough. Most people argued that what 
is now known as John Eleuthere duPont Pavilion should 
have borne Nevin's name instead. 

Suggestions have been made proposing that Jake 
Nevin Fieldhouse be renovated into a much needed fine 
arts center. While we see the great need for a center for 
fine arts, we also think the Fieldhouse should continue 
to be used for athletic purposes. 

The Fieldhouse remains a tribute to Nevin and the 
legacy he left after his death in 1985. It holds many 
memories that have helped Villanova become what it is 
today. Deep in every one of those memories is a lovable 
man named Jake. 

The Jake Nevin Fine Arts Center? We hope not. Jake 
Nevin represented Villanova pride through athletics. He 
continues to be remembered for that, not fine arts. 

Jake Nevin was here with Villanova greats like Al 
Severance, Jumbo Elliot, Jack Kraft, the 1985 NCAA 
Championship basketball team and so many other Wildcat 
greats. In fact, after 'Nova's 66-64 victory over Georgetown 
in the 1985 championship game, Harold Jensen said, "This 
one's for you, Jake." 

The only bridge to the past and to this legendary 
figure for current and future students of Villanova is the 
Jake Nevin Fieldhouse. If Nevin's name is removed from 
campus or misplaced on a fine arts center, his legacy will 
no longer be as intrinsic a part of the Villanova experience 
as it is now. 

Current Wildcat Club Executive Director Robert J. 
Capone said over a decade ago, "When graduates of 
Villanova University think of their alma mater, they think 
of the spires, their professors and Jake Nevin." 

Ten years after Nevin's death, some of that memory 
has faded, but not all of it. Let's keep it that way. 

Concert success is 
bitter"Sweet" for CAT 

cat's improved programming schedule roared into 
the fall semester with promises of fun and entertainment 
to interest everyone. However, CAT's success is limited 
by students' cooperation, or lack thereof. 

Only 1,600 people were in attendance at the Matthew 
Sweet concert Sept. 14 in thejake Nevin Fieldhouse, which 
can accommodate almost 2,500 people. Since at least 2,200 
tickets needed to be sold to break even, the grand kickoff 
for cat's stellar fall line-up fell shy of the goal. 

Students consistently complain that nothing new and 
exciting ever happens on campus. But where were these 
students last Thursday night? CAT is only one of many 
organizations within the University that sponsors a 
variety of activities for students to enjoy. However, 
without student cooperation CAT will be unable to 
continue its quality programming efforts. 

Student apathy is to blame for the low turnout at 
the Matthew Sweet concert and for the consequences that 
this financial loss will have on future plans. We applaud 
cat's extraordinary efforts in the wake of student 
apathy. But how long can CAT keep trying with no 
cooperation from the student body?

Attitudes on 
campus concern 

To the Editor: 

Do Villanova students care 
about anything besides parties 
and bars? Throughout my three 
years and then some at this 
University, I have often pondered 
this question. More lately, how 
ever, I have let the query drift 
away to the corners of my mind 
as I have immersed myself in 
schoolwork, friends, and the pos- 
sibilities beyond graduation. Last 
night, though, the issue of Villan- 
ova students' apathy was shoved 
in front of me again as a distressed 
acquaintance lamented to me 
about the n^ative attitude he 
perceives on this campus. 

So I b^an to think about the 
people I see every day at Villanova 
and just what they do on and 
beyond this beautiful campus of 
green trees and stone buildings. 
As a Resident Assistant, I know 
about a hundred people imti 
mately involved with helping 
others in various ways. I noticed 
during Orientation the wonderful 
network of caring exhibited in the 
aftermath of the death of Joe 
Hauck. In Campus Ministry, I see 
people volunteering in soup kit 
chens, giving their Saturdays to 
Habitat for Humanity and taking 
service trips during breaks. 

Yes then, a larger-than self 
attitude surely does endure at 

Yet the lament of my friend 
rings true to me, as I'm sure it 
echoes loudly in others' ears. I've 
noted that the same groups of 
enthusiastic people tend to do all 
those things that I listed above. 
Thus, while volunteerism, acti 
vism and s(Kial consciousness 
does exist, the majority of the 
student population doesn't seem 
to participate in these activities. 

Therefore, 1 implore each and 
every one of you who is taking the 
time to peruse the Villanovan 
and to read this letter, to tell me, 
to tell everyone what you are 
doing. Prove to me. to my sad 
friend, to each person and Radnor 
citizen who thinks that Villanova 
students are a bunch of rich, lazy, 
apathetic kids, that I am wrong. 
I challenge you to do this. If 
perhaps what I am writing also 

rings true for you, then change 
this perception. Change your 
attitude. Become active. Write 
letters. Join an organization. 
Volunteer an hour of your time. 
One hour. If we all just go out one 
hour later on a Friday night, we 
have about 6,000 hours to give to 
others. Think about it.

CAT says 
thank you 

To the Editor: 

Matthew Sweet's performance 
last Thursday marked the first 
major concert in three years at 
Villanova. Overall, the Campus 
Activities Team was pleased with 
the success of the event. This 
would not have been possible, 
however, without the help of 
many University departments, 
administrators and students. 

The Campus Activities Team 
would like to take this opportunity 
to thank the Facilities Depart 
ment, especially Chuck Leeds and 
the electricians, Dave White, 
Justin Sell, and the entire Athlet 
ics Department, Jim Bonner and 
Public Safety, Brian Herrick and 
VEMS, Tech Crew, and all the 
student volunteers. The assist- 
ance and coop>eration of all of these 
people helped to make our event 
a successful one. Thank you.

As director of Special Projects 
for the SGA, I would like to see 
a weekend shuttle two or three 
times a month to King of Prussia 
Mall. This would primarily benefit 
students without cars, however, 
it would also provide stress 
relieving j«»unts to the Court and 
the Plaza at King of Prussia. 

As part of the External Projects 
division, we could likely incorpo- 
rate an Airport loop to this idea, 
if not to 30th Street Station. 

As Special Projects director, I 
urge any and all students who 
want to see something like this 
come to fruition to get involved 
by contacting me through the

We would love to have your input,

Despite Clinton rhetoric, white males still control 


StatJ Columnist 

This week, 1 learned that flam 
ing liberalship has its privileges. 
On Monday, Philadelphia was 
host to a visit from the president 
and the vice president. I was lucky 
enough to get the opportunity to 
work on the White House advance 
team. For four days, 1 
pounded the pavement with White 
House staffers learning the tricks 
of the advance trade, which is the 
preparatory work that must take 
place before a dignitary visits a 
town. Every moment that a pol 
itician spends in town, from 
arrival to departure, is orches- 
trated by advance people. But 
while I may have gained some 
priceless political knowledge, 1 
also saw some disheartening and 
disillusioning things. 

Bill Clinton was elected as the 
candidate of change, but the old 
boy network is alive and well. 
Clinton vowed to make his admin- 
istration represent America, but 
from what I saw, white men have 
nothing to worry about. 

The president has nominated a 
diverse group, ot. iAdividuals for 
high level positions in his admin- 
istration. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 
Patricia Fleming, Henry Cisneros, 
Ron Brown, Janet Reno and many 
others are a testament to that. In 
fact, the president has been so 
successful at appearing multicul- 
tural -that an anti-affirmative 
action craze, spearheaded most 
recently by Gov. Peter Wilson, has 
swept the nation. White males are 
• supposedly losing jobs to under- 
qualified applicants who receive 

jobs only because of their color or 

But when one looks at the day 
to-day operations of the White 
House, white males are still dom 
inating the payroll as well as the 
power. On Monday night, 1 
watched as the organizers of the 
$l,000-a-plate dinner were ap 
plauded by the crowd. They were 
four white men. 

1 thought the Democratic Party 
was supposed to be the party of 
the people. Why are these four 
men the ones who control the 
money? Candidates in the Phila- 
delphia area can not run a good 
race unless they appeal to these 
four men, who have their own 
interests in mind. 

1 used to think one got ahead 
by merit. But as 1 have learned 
the nuts and bolts of politic^ (as 
well as how to be a cynic), I have 
learned that money is the route 
to power. Unless these gentlemen 
have a great deal of experience in 
the minority communities, I doubt 
they will be recommending 
anyone bU their primarily white, 
male cronies for jobs. 

1 am not tryhing to bash on 
white jn^U^ here. A job^houldgo 
to the most qualified person. No 
one should get a job because they 
are a minority. However, they 
should also not be denied due to 
race or gender. In the political 
world, though, it looks as if no one 
is qualified except white males. 

If minorities are not qualified, 
why aren't we training them? I 
went through White House train- 
ing with a group of predominantly 
black volunteers. These people 
have more political experience 

than 1 do, but how easy is it for 
them to break into the business? 
Thankfully, the person who 
trained us made a conscious effort 
to bring minorities into advance 
training. Otherwise, the next crop 
of advance people would continue 
to spring from the predominantly 
white connections of people like 
the four Philadelphia fundraisers. 

It may seem, especially to critics 
of affirmative action, that 1 am 
placing too much emphasis on 
race. But unless we start reflect 
ing American society in our em- 
ployment, minorities will always 
have to contend with the issue of 
race or gender in hiring. 

In the 1992 elections, five 
women were elected to the U.S. 
Senate, thus bringing the total 
number of women in that es- 
teemed body to seven. This gain 
was large enough to warrant that 
election year being termed, "The 
Year of the Woman," even though 
women make up 51 percent of the 
population. Why was the fact they 
won such news? The year before. 
President Bush appointed Clar- 
ence Thomas to fill the post 
vacated by Thurgood Marshall. 
Pundits- j©ktnfly termed the va^ 
cated slot "the black seat." And 
how often can we look at presi 
dential cabinets and tick off the 
minorities? It is so easy to find the 
token black, the token Jew, the 
token homosexual, the token 
female and then a sea of white 

Affirmative action makes race 
and sex less noticeable, so people 
are treated like people and not like 
labels. General Colin Powell ex 
presses it best in his recent book 

when he staled, "... I would 
certainly not run simply because 
I saw myself as the "Great Black 
Hope, ' providing a role mcxiel for 
African Americans or a symbol to 
whites of racism overcome. I 
would enter only because 1 had a 
vision for this country." 

Until the rest of us stop playing 
the race card, until minorities stop 
being such novelties in the work 
place, until affirmative action 

manages to integrate the job 
market as desegregation inte- 
grated the schools, people will 
continue to be judged on criteria 
other than their merits. 

So, Mr. President, if you really 
want change as much as your 
campaign would have us believe, 
why not shake up your own office 
and make the White House a little 
less white and a little more like 

ABM treaty central

Jiggling ttie Handle of Life 


Staff Columnist 

College students, especially 
freshmen, gain weight. It is a fact. 
Some may just say. "Oh sure, 
when kids get to college they drink 
more beer, so they put on beer 
guts." I partially agree with this 
theory, but be serious. Every 
freshman does not gain 15 pounds 
in eight months because they are 
consuming too many grains. The 
real reason, my friends, is cheese. 
Sure, freshmen tend to drink 
more beer, that is true. But let us 
also recall the most popular beer 
on college campuses, Natural 
LIGHT. Light beer, as we all 
know, has fewer calories. 

Cheese. Yes, cheese, glorious 
cheese in all it's splendor and in 
its many forms. Whether sliced, 
shredded, processed, fried, baked, 
broiled or pureed, cheese is the 
thing. It is scary, but cheese is 
making a run at p<jrk for being 
the "other white meat." 

Back in the days when I was 
a freshman, I thought cheese fries 
were the tastiest thing in the 
world. I recently found my check 
book from freshman year, and the 
fact that every other check was 
recorded as "pizza guy" was not 
a good sign of all the cheese 1 
consumed as a lad. 

I am not saying every freshman 
is as bad as I was, but everyone 
loves cheese, and thanks to lac 
taid. everyone can enjoy it. 

The following is just a sample 
of a conversation I heard while 
walking down the hallway of a 
popular freshman dorm. I am sure 
this conversation and others even 
more gruesome are duplicated a 
thousandfold on a nightly basis. 

"Okay, we've got one large pie, 
I bet I can eat that pizza in IS 
bites " 

"Is that so Jim, well I can eat 
that pizza in 14 bites." 

"I don t know. Bob, eat that 
pizza." I couldn't bear to stay and 
listen to the conclusion of this 
ghastly event, but that just gave 
me some proof to add to my theory. 

I am not saying freshmen 
should not continue to eat cheese. 
In fact, the more the merrier. To 
gain weight as a freshman is a rite 
of passage. You gain your weight 
as a freshman, you try to lose it 
as a sophomore and as a junior, 
and by the time you're a senior, 
you give up and live with the fact 
that you will always have a gut. 
At the end of my freshman year, 
I weighed close to 250 pounds. 
Since then I've managed to knock 
off a couple of pounds here and 
there and now I'm a slim and trim 

Let me run some statistics by 
you. The average college student 
consumes the equivalent of 1.3 
million Kraft singles in their four 
years in school. That is a lot. The 
average freshman consumes al- 
most 25 pounds of cheese in a 
week (Source: Pete's wild guess). 

The statistics are frightening, 
almost shocking. However, they 
will always remain just as they 
are. As long as there are cows and 
people willing to milk them, there 
will be cheese. And as long as 
there's cheese, freshmen will 
always gain weight. It is as plain 
as that. Cheese is and will always 
be "what's for dinner." 

WASHINGTON - Here is a 
new measure of an old pheno- 
menon, the fetish many people 
make of arms control agreements; 
Many who say that weapons 
developed in the Cold War context 
have necessarily lost all useful- 
ness also say that arms control 
agreements negotiated in that 
context — even though negotiated 
with a political entity that no 
longer exists — must at all costs 
be preserved. 

This mentality has been a 
barrier to progress toward provid- 
ing the nation with defenses 
against ballistic missile attacks. 
But the barrier is crumbling 
beneath the weight of its intellec 
tual implausibility. One sign of 
the crumbling was the Senate's 
recent 85-13 vote to require the 
nation to develop for deployment 
a multisite antiballistic missile 
(ABM) system by the year 2003. 

The ABM treaty concluded 
with the Soviet Union in 1972 
limits each side to one ABM site 
of no more than 100 interceptors. 
That is no defense; it was not 
supposed to be. The point of the 
treaty was to codify "mutual 
assured destruction" (MAD), the 
doctrine that two heavily armed 
and ideologically antagonistic 
superpowers could be secure if, 
but only if, they agreed to remain 
equally vulnerable to a nuclear 

Even in the context of 1972 this 
was strategically dubious and 
morally repugnant. It was dubious 
because even if ballistic missile 
defenses could not produce the 
impermeable umbrella Ronald 
Reagan envisioned when propos- 
ing his Strategic Defense Initia 
tive in 1983, even a partially 
effective defense could contribute 
to stability by complicating, to the 
ix)int of paralysis, the calcuations 
of anyone thinking about attempt 
ing a disarming first strike. MAD 
was repugnant because it was 
based on a practice of warfare that 
had been condemned for centuries 
— the holding of civilian popiila 
tions as hostages. 

Whatever sense such a bilateral 
agre<>ment for mutual vulnerabil 
ity ever made in a bipolar world, 
it makes no sense in a world of 
proliferating nuclear weapons 
and ballistic missile technologies 
The Soviet Union is gone. Russia 
will still have at least 3,000 
nuclear warheads in the year 
2003, and China, which has at 
least 100 ICBMs, will surely 
attain a superpower's strategic 
nuclear arsenal. However, for now 
the task for missile defense is not 

to counter the threat ol a satu- 
ration attack by offensive forces. 

Rather, the immediate task is 
to deploy a missile defense system 
adequate to defend the nation 
against an undeterrable attack 
from a fanatic rogue state, and to 
reduce, if not destroy, the leverage 
that a small nuclear (or chemcal 
or biological) arsenal might oth- 
erwise give to a small state pos- 
sessing ballistic missiles. Rep. 
Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.. rightly 
says, "It must now be assumed 
that any act of aggression that 
endangers vital U.S. interests 
sufficiently to call forth a major 
intervention will involve a missile- 
armed adversary." China, North 
Korea,Iran, Iraq. Syria and Libya 
do not exhaust the possibilities. 

The ABM treaty is now 
construed io permit theater de- 
fenses. It does not define them, 
but creates the anomalous situa- 
tion in which U.S. technology can 
be used to protect other nations, 
but not this nation, from attacks. 
The Senate measure only calls for 
being ready to deploy an "affor- 
dable," system. It neither commits 
to deployment, nor defines "affor- 
dable," which suggests that the 
measure is partly designed to give 
hope to believers in missile de- 
fense, but to still adhere to the 
ABM treaty. 

Arms control as its believers 
envision it — agreements making 
the world safer by limiting tech- 
nology — rests on the notion that 
the threat to peace is technolog- 
ical, not political, that the threat 
IS the nature of particular wea- 
pons, not of particular regimes. 
People who subscribe to this 
catechism cannot comprehend 
this truth: Arms control generally 
is impossible until it is unimpor- 
tant. Until, that is, the political 
r(X)ts of conflict disappear. 

However, for the clerisy of 
specialists that negotiates them, 
arms control agreements are ends 
in themselves, independent of any 
demonstrable contribution they 
might make to national security 
or international stability The 
clerisy's assumption is that the 
mere act of nations negotiating to 
an agreement necessarily makes 
the world safer, hence treaties, 
unlike the Rrx'kies which may 
tumble and (iibraltar which may 
crumble, must last forever. 

But treaties are like roses: they 
last while they last. Which is why 
most, like the ABM treaty, contain 
provisions for revising or termi 
nating them. Senator Dole, by 
accusing the Clinton administra- 
tion on Monday of "clinging" to 
the ABM treaty instead of re- 
sponding to the growing threat of 
proliferation of weapons of mass 
destruction, has put the issue 
where it belongs, at the center of 
the presidential campaign.

Colin Powell high on popularity, low on specifics 


Political analysts have been 
speculating for months about 
CoHn Howell's presidential aspira 
tions. With his new lxx)k selling 
well, the interest in the retired 
general has intensified. 

lyong before his political views 
were known, Powell was well- 
respected. Images of him and his 
leadership during the Persian 
(iulf crisis were firmly fixed in the 
memories of every American. He 
had become a symbol of American 

He seemed like a man in whom 
everyone could believe. 

But then the troubling question 
surfaced: What exactly did Powell 
himself believe? 

Recently Powell has begun to 
state his views. Now that the 
months of mind-reading and con- 
jecturing are over, will Powellma- 
nia fizzle? Or will the articulate 
general's popularity continue to 

In any event, he should not 
consider making a run for the 
presidency. He simply fails to 
address clearly the most pressing 
problems in America. 

Powell says he plans to use his 
book tour to figure out whether 
his positions can be sold within 
today's Republican Party. He can 
shroud his views with powerful 
rhetoric, but in the end, he re- 
mains pro-abortion, pro- 
affirmative action and anti-school 
prayer. A book tour should not be 
necessary to determine his viabil 
ity within a GOP presidential race 
(just ask Sen. Arlen Specter and 
Gov. Pete Wilson). The party, 
coming off one of its biggest 
successes ever (the 1994 elections). 


is as f(K'ussed now as it has ever 
Ixvn. And plainly stated, Powell's 
ideas are out of f(xus. 

After agreeing that out of- 
wedlock births are a cause of 
many inner city problems, Powell 
admitted he did not have a specific 
plan. Instead, he switched the 
focus to assailing subsidies given 
to businesses. This statement is 
a far cry from indicting the 
programs now being blamed by 
most Republicans (and many 
Democrats) for the tragedy that 
has developed in the cities. 

Obviously, his views will be 
come more defined as the debates 
appear on the horizon. But for 
now, it appears as if he is willing 
to avoid specifics and launch 
insults at the conservative wing 
of Congress. 

It is important to note that 
Powell's presidential aspirations 
do not hinge upon acceptance 
within the Republican Party. An 
independent bid is not out of the 
question and the prospect of a Bill 
Bradley/Colin Powell ticket has 
some populists going ga-ga. In any 
event, Gen. Powell has been given 
a free ride thus far. It is time for 
him to start getting down to 

The United States is at a junc- 
ture where tough decisions need 
to be made. Priorities will have to 
be set and clear agendas must be 
pursued. A presidential candi- 
date's views should be solidified 
by this point. 

Powell was certainly an expert 
in the military field. I had an 
opportunity to meet him and 
when he spoke, he was convincing, 
mainly bo::ause he was extremely 
knowledgeable and proficient in 
military matters. But in no way 

d(X's that exfXTtise translate into 
cxiXTtise in the world of public 

It is tempting to support him 
simply because he has become a 
sign of one of America's most 

prolific victories. The Gulf War 
was a timeof tremendous patriotic 
pride and his face will always bt^ 
associated with it. However, 
Americans would be wise to rise 
above these feel good passions and 

withhold their support until he 
proves himself in the political 

America dcx'sn't need another 
general. It needs a president. 

Money alone does not define success 


Associate Editor 

A big house in a well-to do 
neighborhood. A souped up foreign 
car. Fancy, sparkling jewelry. 
Status symbols. But what do they 
really symbolize? Are these the 
symbols of success or simply 
extrinsic, meaningless pos- 

In the materialistic world in 
which we live, one might think 
a quick flash of a $10,(X)0 Rolex 
watch would be enough to deem 
the wearer a success. Think 

In a recent survey conducted by 
the Roper Organization that asked 
1,027 people over the age of 18 
what they associated with suc- 
cess, 79 percent of those surveyed 
said a happy family or relationship 
is first and foremost. 

Next in line, at 65 percent, were 
those who said having enough 
time for family and friends made 
them feel successful. And, 57 
percent of these surveyed said 
control over their lives made them 
feel successful. 

What about money, career and 
power you ask? Those three 
ranked dead last in the survey. In 
addition, 57 percent of those 
surveyed reported that their de- 

finition of success, has changed 
over the last seven years. Most 
said instead of emphasizing mo- 
ney and possessions, they are 
putting more stock in success 
with people. 

To say the least, I was shocked 
at the results of the survey. Of 
course a sample of 1,027 people 
can't possibly represent the entire 
population. But if one simply 
glances across the front page of 
any newspaper, stories on the 
importance of family values cer- 
tainly don't make the headlines. 

In any case, I thought the 
survey was a breath of fresh air, 
especially in light of what goes on 
here at Villanova. 

Every day we hear the same 
thing, "You're a senior; you need 
to make a resume; you need to get 
a job; it's time to get out in the 
real worid and do something with 
yourself; you need to fight to be 
'successful.' " 

There's that word again. 

I'm no different than anyone 
else and J hear these things too. 
In fact, I've heard it so much that 
I've b^un to tune it out just like 
I tuned out "Insane in the Mem- 
brane" during the height of its 

But what all the hype has done 
is force me to evaluate my own 

definition of success. For the past 
two weeks I've thought about it; 
and thought, and thought, and 
thought. All that thinking has led 
me to one idea: a balance. 

To me, success is the balance 
a person establishes between 
everything in their life that they 
love. It is a balance between 
family, friends, job, God and 
whatever else brings satisfaction 
to the individual. 

There is no specific way to 
achieve success. It is difficult to 
answer the question, "Am I sue 
cessful?" Success is not tangible, 
it's nothing external. Rather, it's 
an internal feeling of peace with 
oneself. I guess some would call 
it "p)eace of mind." Others may 
call it happiness. 

Like the people in the survey, 
I tend to live life in the slow lane. 
In fact, I'm trying to live life in 
the slowest lane possible, espe- 
cially of late. I'm taking the lane 
to the right of the right lane. If 
the slow drivers are going 50 mph, 
I'll do my damnedest to go 45 mph. 

This doesn't mean that I don't 
want a job for next year. It simply 
means that I want a job that I like. 
If the pay is good, fine. If not, I'll 
take my lumps Hke everyone else 
does. As long as I can pay the bills, 
I'll get by.

of St. Thomas of Villanova, the 
University's patron saint whose

"St. Thomas was extremely

Best Buddies program to arrive at 'Nova 


Staff Reporter 

Junior Psychology major Chris 
tine Mooney has founded a Villan 
ova chapter of the Best Buddies 
program. The international or 
ganization is "designed to enhance 
the lives of individuals with 
mental retardation," accordirig to 
a Best Buddies advertisement. 

"I volunteered for Special Olym- 
pics last year and wondered why 
the friendships couldn't con- 
tinue," said Mooney, explaining 
why she chose to bring Best 
Buddies to Viilanova. The |>ro' 
gram pairs each of 15 to 20 

students — college buddies — 
with a developmentally disabled 
person, or a buddy, from the 
surrounding community. For one 
school year, best buddies must 
talk at least once a week and meet 
t wice a month , according to organ 
ization guidelines, yet friendships 
may last longer if the buddies 

The Campus Ministry based 
program will sponsor group activ- 
ities for the buddies as well. 
Another opportunity includes 
becoming an associate buddy, who 
does not pair with any particular 
buddy, but attends group outings 
and meetings until he/she feels 
ready for the commitment of being 
a college buddy. 

"It should be a lot of fun," said 
Mooney, "I'm looking forward to 
sharing my enthusiasm with 
everyone else." Mooney, as direc- 
tor of Villanova's Best Buddies 
program, attended a leadership 
conference in Miami this June. 
Attendance was required of all 
student directors nationwide to 
educate them about how to work 
with mentally challenged 
individuals. -* • . 

"I was very impressed with 

their preparation," said Barbara 
Haenn, the associate director of 
Campus Ministry and the staff 
coordinator for Best Buddies. 
"This is a very vvell-glued together 
organization." She supported 
Mooney's effort to bring the 
program to campus because she 
found the organization ensures 
that buddy relationships are con- 
ducted responsibly, respectfully, 
and are kept personal. 

■^v ^ 

"It's a program of friendship," 
explained Haenn, which aims to 
help people with slight mental 
retardation w ho c an ]wrtidpate in 
life, but are socialy isolated be- 

Sister Cribben celebrated 
as an inspiration to us all 

special to the Villanovan 

Sister Mary Margaret Cribben 
celebrated with all jubilarians of 
the Archdiocese at a holy mass in 
the cathedral offered by His Em- 
inence, the Cardinal, Archbishop 
Anthony B. Bevilacqua, and with 
many priests including her ne- 
phew, Msgr. Phihp J. Cribben, 
secretary of Catholic Education 
for the Archdiocese of 

Cribben is in her 40th year with 
Villanova University. She began 
her teaching career as a novice at 
St. Matthias in 1934, then con- 
tinued at St. Margaret, Our Lady 
of Mount Carmel and Our Lady 
of Lourdes. She began at Merion 
Mercy Academy as a librarian and 
teacher in 1952, and helped to plan 
the library in the New Merion 
Mercy Academy. 

Cribben is an alumna of Villan- 
ova, class of 1940, with a B.S. in 
education. She earned an M.A. in 
educational administration and 
an A. M.A. in religious studies at 
Villanova. She continued her 
studies at Drexel University in 
1946 for her Masters in Library 

Because Cribben was so active 
in the field of library science, the 
chairman of the department of 
library science, Dr. Howard 
McGinn, asked the Superior for 
her to join the Library Science 
department. The Rev. Louis Ron 
gione, OSA, prevailed on the order 

to give Cribben to Villanova full 

At Villanova, Cribben taught 30 
courses, creating four new courses 
for the library science program: 
special librarianship, adult liter- 
ature, library service toadults and 
public relations. She wrote the 
program that caused Harrisburg 
to give Villanova the power to 
certify school librarians. Cribben 
was also an adjunct professor at 
Gwynned Mercy College and at 
Drexel University, in the depart- 
ment of library and information 

Cribben has also been an active 
member in library associations. 
She began as a member of the 
executive board of the Neuman 
Chapter of the Catholic Library 
Association (CLA) and became the 
first Sister elected president of 
that organization. She was a 
member of the National Catholic 
Library Association, the American 
Library Association, the Pennsyl- 
vania Library Association and 
Pennsylvania School Library 

Cribben and the dean of Drexel 
founded the Library Public Rela- 
tions Association of Philadelphia 
and she later was elected presi- 
dent. She was editor of the new 
sletter of the Neuman Chapter of 
CLA and wrote monthly for the 
Catholic Library World, the offi- 
cial magazine of the National 
Catholic Library Association. She 
contributed yearly to the standard 

catalog for high school libraries, 
a book used by high school librar- 
ians to help them in their book 

At Villanova, you will see 
Cribben on the sidelines cheering 
on the students, making signs of 
congratulation on their achieve- 
ments. She has done this her 
entire religious life. 

In 1985, Villanova offered 
Cribben an inspirational award 
given to the woman athlete who 
"unselfishly sacrifices time, ef- 
fort, body and soul to lead and 
motivate her teammates." RoUie 
Massimino took her to the games, 
even to Kentucky from the NCAA 
Championship. She also received 
the championship ring in the form 
of a medallion on a gold chain. 

Harry Perrotta presented 
Cribben with a watch when the 
women's basketball team won the 
Big East Championship. In 1987, 
she was voted into the Villanova 
Hall of Fame by the Varsity Club. 

Among her many recognitions, 
Cribben was elected to the Chapel 
of the Four Chaplains and was 
awarded the Woman of Achieve- 
ment Award for her contributions 
to women. 

Cribben had taken for her motto 
when she made her vows in 1935 
"usque ad summum" meaning 
"up to the brim" for our dear Lord 
and for souls. The life of Sister 
Mary Margaret Cribben has in 
deed been "up to the brim" in 
many, many ways.

What's In Your Head? 


Features Editor 

Although It might be somewhat 
unkosher, I'd like to start this 
piece off with a short prayer of 
thanks and hope. First, I must 
give a long overdue thanks to my 
parents for the junior high gra 
duation present they gave me: the 
state of the art typewriter on 
which I have typed this commen- 
tary. At three a.m. the morning 
of deadline when every single one 
of the campus' computing sights 
are closed due to a virus, this type- 
writer is worth Its weight in gold. 

My second prayer is in hopes 
that after I save this article in the 
oh-soextensive memory of this 
antique, it will actually do me the 
honor of printing it out. . . 

The thing is, I know that I 
shouldn't have waited until the 
very last minute because it is 
precisely something like this that 
never fails to go wrong when one 
does, in fact, wait until the last 
minute. However, as a wise man 
once told me, "that's what the last 
minute is for." Yet while some 
people pride themselves in the 
extraordinary work they can do 
under pressure, there still exists 
a majority of us that just get 
frighteningly overwhelmed when 
too much of life is crammed into 
too little of a time span. 

So here we are, not even one 
month into the semester, and I am 
already seeing people crack up left 
and right due to such cramming. 
We all know it when we see it; 
people suddenly start to exhibit 
strange, inexplicable and often 
scary behaviors for apparently no 
reason at all. 

For example, students bursting 
into tears while walking quietly 
through campus. Not to mention 
the tendency to laugh uncontrol- 
lably at something that is just not 
funny at all (in my case, that 
stimulus usually being my- 
self. . . ), and also the common urge 
to shout out words or fragments 
of words in public places for no 
just cause. If a person really hits 
rock bottom, they may even begin 
to strike themselves repeatedly 
with considerable force while 
sitting in a seemingly non- 
threatening environment, such as 
a classroom or dining hall. 

But why does this happen to us' 
And more importantly, why is it 
happening so early in the semes- 
ter' Well, one reason is that here 
at Villanova it is all t(K) easy to 
get too involved. No, you say? 
Well, there is a quick and easy 
way to assess if you are a victim 
of overcommitment: First of all, 
d<K's your daily planner provide 
vou with constant companionship

Overcommitment can 
be ovenvhelming . . . 

wherever you go? If so, do you find 
yourself unable to perform any 
simple task without first consult 
ing your planner? Finally, do you 
constantly find yourself making 
lists of things to do, and then 
never have the time to do these 
things because you are constantly 
wasting your time making lists? 
If you answered "yes" to any of 
these scenarious, it is highly likely 
that you are among the 

A common sentiment of the 
overcommitted is that of being 
overwhelmed. And as helpless as 
this feeling may leave an individ: 
ual, it is vital to realize that it can 
be overcome. Usually the best way 
to crack down before virtually 
cracking up is to drop everything 
and spend a substantial amount 
of time doing something you 
absolutely love to do. (Even if such 
an activity is not recorded on your 
daily planner!) Then you can more 
easily take a few minutes to step 

back from the impending catas- 
trophe and calmly take the neces- 
sary steps to prevent it. 

So, plea^se, try not to stress out 
too much (yet). If you are over- 
committed, itis likely that you are 
doing a lot of people a great service 
through your commitments. Just 
remember that it should not be at 
your own expense. Hopefully, it 
is still early enough in the year 
that we can sit down and narrow 
down our priorities in order to 
eliminate some of the unnecessary 
crisis later on. 

Because nob<xly enjoys being up 
at four a.m. on the verge of tears, 
hunched over a keyboard talking 
to herself while smacking herself 
in the head every other minute to 
stay awake, periodically staring at 
her open planner only to reassure 
herself that the rest of the day is 
scheduled to be twice as bad, 

Hopefully, that will never be 
me. . .

'Sweet Sounds 


Sweet gives Novans Fun 
weeknight alternative 


Entertainment Editor 

You learn something new ev- 
ery day. Some days it might 
be something educational, like 
Plato's "Myth of the Cave." Other 
days it could be something as 
exciting as figuring out precisely 
^ the right time setting to defrost 
a bagel and heat water for coffee 
in the microwave at the same 
time. And then some days, and 
these are certainly the red letter 
ones, you just might learn one of 
the great secrets of the universe. 

On Thursday, Sept. 14, 1 learned 
one such secret. After years of 
latent curiosity never pursued, I 
learned how to get on the tour bus 
of a famous musician. On that 
same day I also became privy to 
another great secret — that des- 
pite the fact that his albums only 
seem to go gold in demographically 
unimportant places like Canada, 
Matthew Sweet gives a hell of a 
live show. 

Nearly 1,700 music hungry 
students filled the Jake Nevin 
Field House this past Thursday 
to witness a bit of Villanova 
history — a major concert. This, 
I suppose, puts the Campus Ac- 
tivities Team one up on the 
basketball team, as it only took 
them about six years to bring 
another miracle to a Villanova 
court. But in the words of the 
great Wayne Campbell, 'I digress.' 

As opening bands go, Matthew's 
warm up, 3LB Thrill was a plea- 
\ sant surprise. Intelligible lyrics 
and solid musicianship set these 
Georgia natives apart from many 
an opening act I have suffered 
through in my years of concert 
going. However, as is true with 

almost every live show the au- 
dience was a little more than eager 
for the headliner to take the stage. 

In what could be thought of as 
a bold move, considering his 
music's somewhat limited expo- 
sure. Sweet opened up his one 
hour and fifteen-minute set with 
the lesser known "Superde- 
formed," an edgy gem off the Son 
of Altered Beast EP that slid 
perfectly into a souped up thrashy 
version of the normally borderline 
bubble gum "I've Been Waiting." 

The show moved at a rapid, 
window rattling (despite those 
dreaded Field House acoustics) 
pace with little stage patter and 
even less theatrics. The dark and 
disturbing "Somebody to Pull the 
Trigger" brought things down a 
notch and brought any of the fe\^ 
potential crowd surfers back to 

However, the pace was imme- 
diately revived with the Girlfriend 
opener "Divine Intervention" and 
did not slow down for the re- 
mainder of the evening. Defying 
concert convention. Sweet saved 
both of his best known songs for 
last. A 70 rpm version of "Girl- 
friend" which seemed to last for 
only about 30 seconds (Sweet has 
been known to mention that is one 
of his least favorite songs) and, at 
the opposite end of the spectrum, 
a version of "Sick of Myself" that 
continued even after Sweet said 
goodnight and left the stage. 
Although many concert goers left 
immediately following the two big 
radio hits, the true Sweet fans 
who remained were pleasantly 
surprised -by a two song encore 
which included the beautifully 
melancholy "Win' na" which lost 
a little of its tenderness on stage 

Matthew Sweet's live performance electrified Villanova fans on Seot. 

but managed to remain heart- 

Hopefully, the quality of the 
performance and the respectful 
demeanor of the crowd will serve 
as notice to the school as well as 
the community that the Campus 
Activities Team, along with other 
Villanova student organizations, 
can run an event of this magnitude 
unscathed and with success. 

Oh, and about getting on the 
tour bus of a famous musician — 
it is not as difficult as it might 
seem. With my notebook and pen 
in hand and my trusty co-editor 
at my side, I waited patiently 

behind Jake Nevin. We mformed 
anyone who looked even vaguely 
important that we were press and 
we were told we could do an 
interview. These facts did not 
impress anyone and we were told 
to wait. So wait we did. And 
continued to do so. While we 
engaged in all that important 
waiting, we noticed that other 
folks, other female folks, that is, 
were boarding the bus. What were 
they saying to get past the door? 
Did they have press passes? Did 
they make up some fantastic story 
about being terminally ill like 
Bobby did on "The Brady Bunch?" 
I decided to listen in on a conver- 


sation between one such female 
and a guy who apparently was the 
bass player. She sidled up next to 
him, cleared her throat, smiled 
confidently and said, "Um, so do 
you like playing the bass?" He 
smiled back and invited her to join 
him on the bus. At that moment 
I learned what I always thought 
was true but never wanted to 
admit — the right shade of lip- 
stick, a little bit of coquetishness 
and a whole lot of stupidity can 
get you just about anywhere. He 
was worth preserving our journal- 
istic integrity to wait that extra 
hour in the cold to meet the man 
who made Villanova "Fun" again. 

NIN rocks Amishi Art museum is more 

than meets the eye 


News Editor 

Pairing David Bowie with 
Nine Inch Nails (NIN) for a 
concert tour seems a bit unus- 
ual, but the Sept. 17 show at 
Hersheypark Stadium made it 
seem like a good match. 

NIN performed an ear- 
splitting set that was com- 
prised exclusively of songs 
from the album Further Down 
the Spiral. These songs are new 
arrangements of the tracks 
found on the band's 1994 re- 
lease The Downward Spiral. 

Trent Reznor's new version 
of "Closer" drove the crowd 
into a frenzy with its subtle, 
but powerful, vocal sequence 
which creates a much more 
sensual feeling for the song. 
The band's performance of 
"March of the Pigs" was over- 
whelming. The sensory Blitzk- 
rieg created by the synthesized 
beat coupled with the pulsing 
lights made Reznor look and 
sound like some sort of demon 
as he leaped around the stage 
in a violent fury. 

The band absolutely rocked 
for the entire 50 minute set. It 
was great to see the older fans, 
who had come to see the Bowie 
they knew from the 70's, 
squirm silently in their seats 
as Reznor shrieked his porno- 
graphic lyrics. Much to their 
dismay, Bowie only did a smat- 

tering of pre- 1993 material, 
concentrating instead on his 
mod stuff. 

Before NIN left the stage, 
Bowie joined him for his obs- 
cure "Scary Monsters." They 
then plowed into "Hurt" leav- 
ing the vocals to Bowie whose 
voice is, needless to say, far 
superior to Reznor's. After 
Reznor and his band left the 
stage, Bowie ran through many 
of the tracks from his recently 
released Outside and the poor- 
selling Black Tie White Noise. 
The concert reached its high 
point during "Heart's Filthy 
Lesson" and "Jump They Say." 

Bowie missed a perfect op 
portunity to do some of his Tin 
Machine material. With NIN 
backing him up and Reeves 
Gabrels on guitar, those pound- 
ing tunes would have blown 
the crowd away. 

Bowie was definitely out of 
his element. He is style incar- 
nate and, thus, belongs in a 
fashionable club or theater, but 
here he was performing in the 
middle of Amish country. It did 
not work, and his energy level 
proved it. He seemed bored 
through most of the show and 
did not even do an encore. 
There were a few bright spots 
where his powerfully distinc- 
tive voice pulled him through, 
but only a true fan would have 
appreciated this show. 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

Time has been turned back and 
you suddenly find yourself in 
the mists of an jold English home 
in the 1500s. Majestic ceilings 
with paintings of splendid beauty 
surround you. Large shiny 
chandeliers hang down in front of 
you. Paintings of ancestors fill the 
walls and antique wood furniture 
fills the room. 

As you move through time the 
images change. The 1600s encom- 
pass sculptures of magnificent 
detail. It is all so real you feel as 
if you are part of the setting and 
home. The paintings on the wall 
change as time quickly runs past 
you. You suddenly find yourself 
in the 18(X)s with romantic paint 
ings expressing nature and the 
beauty of the world around you. 

The only sad part about this 
passage through time is that it 
must end because the Philadelphia 
Museum of Art closes at 5 p.m. 

Yes, this is where you have 
been, Good old Philadelphia. Al- 
though you may have been to the 
Philadelphia Museum of Art be- 
fore, it is now a totally new, fresh 
and interactive experience. The 
Museum is in the process of 
renovations, starting with Euro- 

pean Art from 1500-1850. The 
work has been put in a more 
chronological order and set in

rooms that depict the setting and 
time in which the painting or piece 
was created. Making for an excit 
ing and interactive way to look at 

The renovations have not only 
dealt with the setting and order 
of the paintings but new lighting 
and fresh paint have been put on 
the walls. More user friendly 
signs have been placed with the 
art and for those that are not the 
museum type, it is not like going 
to the museum but rather like a 
trip to a far off land. 

The variety of art at the mu- 
seum is sure to capture all tastes. 
If you want to go back further in 
time, the museum has art from 
as far back as the 12th century. 
There is also a large section 
devoted to Asian Art, French 
Impressionism, Modern Art and 
for the child in you there is an 
Arms and Armor section. 

The museum is one of a kind! 

If you have nothing to do on a 
Wednesday night, the museum is 
open till 8:45 p.m., with special 
programs including food, enter- 
tainment and music. 

As if all ot this were not enough, 
the museum offers art history 
courses and workshops for those 
wanting to learn more about what 
they are seeing.

1 ho Ixst part at)out gumg to the

to support this great institution 
of education and enjoyment,

Star Wars Trilogy retains its cult status 


Entertainment Editor 

Three weekends ago, the in- 
habitants of my apartment 
(including myself) were stricken 
ill. Yes, the great pollen god and 
the mold spore goddess were 
warring over who causes the most 
sinus pain. As my roommates and 
I sneezed and coughed, we heard 
our niMKhbor^ prrjiaring for 
another wct-kciHi t-^v of revelry. 
We, on the other hand, were 
preparing for an early bedtime 
and were partying it up until then 
with shots of chicken soup. 

Needless to say, we were sick 
and we were depressed. We sat in 
front of the television wrapped in 
blankets channel surfing. Natu- 
rally, nothing good was on tele- 
vison and our depression over our 
illness increased exponentially. 
Then, in a flash, we were inspired. 
Sunlight streamed into our apart 
ment as triumphant music 
sounded throughout the room. We 
knew what to do. We would watch 
the Star Wars Trilogy! 

On May 25, 1977, a movie was 
released which would later inspire 

an almost cult like following. The 
move was "Star Wars." This 
creation of George Lucas not only 
made a killing at the box-office but 
it also set a new standard in 
filmmaking and special effects. At 
the 1977 Academy Awards, it 
snagged seven Oscars and a spe- 
cial achievement award for sound 
effects creation. 

"Star Wars" is often considered 
the best movie of the trilogy. It 
has the better storyline of the 
three, and the action is nonstop. 
It will always hold a special place 
in my heart because it was prob- 
ably the first non-Disney movie I 
had the patience to sit through, 
and it was the first movie my 
father was actually excited to 
view with me. 

In this "galaxy far, far 
away... " Princess Leia (Carrie 
Fisher) is being held hostage by 
the Evil Empire who is trying to 
destroy the Rebel Alliance (sounds 
like the political situation in some 
countries today). Jedi in training 
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) 
and the lovable rogue Han Solo 
(Harrison Ford) are teamed to- 
gether to rescue the princess by 

a combination ol fate and Solo's 
need for quick cash. Will this 
daring duo succeed? Will Darth 
Vader and the Empire win? Did 
Princess Leia tick off her hair- 
dresser to get a style like that? 

The sequel "The Empire 
Strikes Back" depicts the next 
chapter of Luke Skywalker and 
his friends. After a thorough 
study of the three films, my ill 
friends and I concluded that, 
although the first film has a better 
story, the sequel has better lines. 
Also, the introduction of Yoda is 
enough to make this movie great. 
I have this thing for green men. 
Yoda, Kermit, Gumby, the list 
goes on. 

Anyway, the film opens with 
the Empire's victory over the 
rebels at Hoth. Naturally, Leia, 
Solo, Chewbacca, the droids and 
Skywalker survive — it would not 
be much of a sequel if they died 
in the first scene of the movie — 
duh! Luke goes off to further his 
training as a Jedi with Jedi master 
Yoda, and the others inadvertently 
become embroiled in Darth Vad- 
er's plot to lure Luke to the dark 
side of the force. The usual fight 

with blasters and light sabers 
occurs and Luke learns an inter- 
esting fact regarding his pater- 
nity. If you think his papa is the 
guy with the heavy breathing 
problem, give yourself a gold star. 
Unlike "Star Wars," "The Empire 
Strikes Back" screams another 
follow-up is going to come out. 
After all, the evil guys are not 
punished. Hollywood simply can- 
not allow such an ending. It would 
mirror society too much. 

In the last movie of the "Star 
Wars" saga we see Luke Sky- 
walker finally has completed his 
Jedi training. However, he still 
must face his destiny and confront 
Darth Vader before he will be a 
true Jedi. He also must confront 
the Emperor who, by the way, is 
one ugly guy. He is proof that one 

Hip Hop Theatre Playbill 


Staff Reporter 

What's the deal people? It is 
about that time to start 
letting you know about the latest 
Hip Hop news. First off, for all the 
upperclassmen, there have been 
changes since last year if you have 
not noticed. The Hip Hop Theatre 
Radio Show has changed com- 
pletely. We are now on Tuesday 
nights from 11 pm to 2 a.m. 
(89.1FM), and the show is hosted 
by myself and B-iLL (For the 
Heads). Nuff respect to Mr. Firlee 
and Z, however, they are both out 
pursuing solo careers on the West 
Coast. As for the 'Hip Hop Nights' 
that people keep asking about, 
save it because I'm not doing them 
this year for the simple reason 
that Connelly Center is WHACK, 
and the attendance levels were not 
worth the work. Lastly, this 
column will be back for good, so 
check for it every week. Whether 
it is written by me or by my 
partner B-iLL, it will be the bomb. 
Now it is time to let you know 
what to expect this Hip-Hop 
season. I took time out this week 
to review a couple of albums that 
I received a little early: 

1 KRS ONE. . . KRSONE: I'm not 
biased or anything but. . . BOMB 
BOMB BOMB. Kris outdid him 
self with this album, successfully 
attacking every problem with 
today's Hip Hop culture, the 
emergence of fake MCs who talk 
and talk and talk but can't back 
it up in a battle, unnecessary 
violence in the streets, racism, 
disrespect of women, MC longev 
ity, stress, you name it, Kris 
covered it. Some of the hottest 
songs on the album are, "Build 
Your Skills" featuring Busta 
Rhymes, "Represent the Real Hip 
Hop" featuring Das Efx. "Rappers 
are in Danger" produced by DJ 
Premier, "What I Know" pro 
duced by Diamond, and "Health, 
Wealth and Knowledge of Myself" 
where Kris reveals his secrets for 
MC longevity. If this album 
doesn't move you, then you hon 
estly have no clue as to what 
REAL Hip Hop actually is. 

Catch Hip Hop Theatre Tuesdays trom 11 p.m.-2 a.m. 

Album number three for diggety 
das, and probably one of their 
tightest. On this one they got 
some outside production help 
from DJ Premier, Easy Moe Bee

DMC. "Microphone Master" is 
another fat track and "Can't Have 
Nuttin" has the duo telling their 
life stories all the way up to the 
day they met EPMD and got 
signed. For all those traditional 
Hit Squad fans, "Bad News" 
featuring the much slept on PMD, 
is something that could have come 
out during the Business as Usual 
days. The only problem with the 
album is that it may be too long, 
you might find one or two unne- 
cessary songs on it, but overall, 
it's worth the money. 

OR NOTHIN: The Green Eyed 
Bandit's second solo joint is pretty 
consistent with his first. Ridicu- 
lous beats, and guest appearances 
from the likes of Keith Murray, 
Redman and Hurricane G. Lyri- 
cally, however, E Double delivers 
more of the same cute punchlines 
without too much substance. This 
really bothers me because I re- 
member back when he was an 
actual lyricist, and he could make 
someone respect him with two 
lines. (He's probably been hangin 
out in Atlanta a little longer than 
he should have.) Anyway, it's an 
Erick Sermon album regardless, 
besides, how many true lyricists 
are left nowadays? 
Listen to the show. Peace! 


Special to the VilUtMovaM 

Toward the end of Luis Bu- 
nuel's film "That Obscure 
Object of Desire," a character 
asserts, "At the subconscious 
level, nothing is accidental." 

This line sums up Bunuel's 
style of surrealism, a trademark 
that he has perfected throughout 
his illustrious career. This fasci- 
nating approach to filmmaking 
highlights "That Obscure Object 
of Desire," a mysteriously rousing 
movie that explores the inexplica- 
ble world of sexual desire and 
obsession. The movie was a tre- 
mendous success in both the 
United States and Europe. Critics 
across America named it as one 
of the 10 best films of 1977, and 
it received an Academy Award 
nomination for Best Foreign Lan- 
guage Film. 

The film follows Mathieu (Fer- 
nando Rey), a wealthy man who 
falls in love with his beautiful 
young maid, Conchita (played by 
both Carole Bouquet and Angela 
Molina), and instantly becomes 
obsessed with her. When he at- 
tempts to get closer to her roman- 
tically, she quits her job and 
disappears. The movie covers the 
next several years in which Ma- 
thieu repeatedly encounters Con- 
chita, who is literally two different 
women, but remains a mere object 
to Mathieu. With every meeting. 
Mathieu avows his love for her 
and his desire to sleep with her. 
She verbally reciprocates her love 
for him, but again and again tells 
him she is a virgin, and refuses 
his physical advances. She moves 
away numerous times, but the 
obsessive Mathieu keeps happen- 
ing to find her. 

Although "That Obscure Object 
of Desire" portrays an intriguing 
story of obsession, it is Bunuel's 
famous surrealistic style that 

visually shines throughout the 
film. Most noticeable is his use of 
time in the film. The majority of ' 
the movie is a recollection of 
events as told by Mathieu to 
fellow train passengers. The 
opening scene takes place after his 
tumultous encounters with Con- 
chita, and the story circles around 
to conclude there. Contemporary 
film fans may appreciate this 
formalistic manipulation of time, 
as it bears a striking resemblance 
to the style of today's hottest 
director, Quentin Tarantino. 

Bunuel skillfully uses other 
devices that epitomize surrealistic 
images: weird and shocking, but 
not devoid of meaning. His impli- 
cation that society is self-, 
destructing is evident in numer- 
ous scenes that contain random 
acts of terrorism. His use of two 
actresses to play Conchita reflects 
the character's complex ambival- 
ence. Bunuel repeatedly frames 
her character in a mirror, suggest- 
ing her duality. He even teases the 
audience with touches of symbo- 

What makes this style so inter- 
esting is that it is aimed at the 
audience's subconscious; every- 
thing within Bunuel's frame 
seems to be there strategically. 
This directs us back to the char- 
acter who .remarked, "At the 
subconscious level, nothing is 
accidental." Perhaps this is 
another instance of Bunuel toying 
with his audience. Is he giving us 
insight on his filming technique 
and advice on how to view his 
movie? This leaves a lot to the 
audience's subjectivity, which 
means interpretation is wide 

"That Obscure Object of De- 
sire" will be shown in the Con- 
nelly Cinema Sept. 23 at 7 p.m., 
Sept. 24 at 3:30 and 7 p.m., and 
Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. The showing 
on the 25th will include Dr. Seth 
Koven giving a lecture titled 
"Terrorism and Desire." 

Sexual desire and obsession are explored in Luis Bunnel's final

Festival highlights animation technique 


Staff Reporter 

Animation has come a long 
way sincf Walt Disney's first 
adventure with Mickey Mouse on 
"Steamboat Willy." The art has 
developed from the classical frame 
by frame technique of cell anima 
tion, to the three dimensional 
world of computer animation. 
This year, Spike and Mike's 
Festival of Animation celebrates 
the alternate reality that artists 
create using timing, motion and 
imagination. This year's program 
rolls off the projector in memory 

of Mike Gnbble, the Mike of Spike 
and Mike, who died suddenly in 
the fall of 1994. 

A near capacity crowd filled the 
375-seat theater in the Interna 
tional House on the campus of the 
University of Pennsylvania. All 
had come for the opening night of 
Spike and Mike's Festival of 
Animation 1995. An annual tra- 
dition for the past 11 years. Spike 
and Mike bring us a collection of 
animated pieces that covers the 
various techniques and styles 
used by today's artist. One never 
knows what to expect in Spike 
and Mike's dream world. There 
are a few short, funny pieces that 
use simple animation to get a 
quick and clever joke in. John 

Schnall in "Opposing Views," 
tackles the never-ending chicken 
or the egg debate on a trashy talk 
show. Vanessa Schwartz makes a 
larger impression with her work, 
"The Junior." We watch as God's 
bumbling janitor tries to piece 
together Mother Earth in the 
wake of our negligent behavior. 

Clearly a dance-inspired piece. 
Erica Russell's "Triangle" ex 
plores the shape and forms of the 
human body in motion. She mes- 
merizes us with smooth moves 
and kaleidoscopic colors until we 
notice we are no longer watching 
the representation of human 
figures, but abstract designs that 
dance and sway to the music. 

Animation is often used as 

satire. Joanna Quinn makes a 
statement about the bulldog that 
was colonial Britain in "Britan 
nia." First, we see the mighty 
bulldog toy with the globe from 
a place where the sun never sets. 
Then, we watch as Britain strug 
gles under the weight of the world 
it once ruled. 

Computer animation, made 
possible by recent advances in 
computer technology, is the cut 
ting edge of the cartoon world. 
"Rock, Paper, Scissors" by Jeremy 
Cantor, uses three-dimensional 
computer generated images to tell 
the story of a love triangle. This 
film gives office supplies person- 
alities and emotions through 
gestures, reactions and bodv 

language Darren Butts brings life 
to a prehistoric cave painting 
using a two dimensional figure on 
a computer generated three 
dimenstional landscape in 

Two of the longest animations 
in this collection are also two of 
the best. "Bob's Birthday" by 
Alison Snowden and David Fine, 
is a funny look at a mid-life crisis 
gone out of control. Nicholas 
Park's "The Wrong Trousers " is 
a claymation masterpiece that 
aired at last year's festival. It was 
awarded The Academy Award for 
Animation and brought the crowd 
to its feet at the conclusion of 
Spike and Mike's Festival of 
Animation 1995.

Aquarius: (io to Dunkin Donuts 
al^3 a.m. and quiz the baker on 
th'e freshness of the product. 
Demand to know the exact time 
that each item came out of the 
oven. Buy a bust of Freud and tell 
It alxjut that strange dream you 
have tx-en having about a red-eyed 
tree frog. 

Pisces: Practice ycxJeling for the 
upcoming Riccola commercial. 
Take all the unmatched socks in 
your drawer and make them into 
hand puppets. Use them to reenact 
thegreat Shakespearean tragedies. 

Aries: Amazing discoveries are in 
store for you this week. On Thurs- 
day you will discover that Elvis 
is alive and well and working in 

Campus Confections. On Friday 
you will find Waldo on the b(K)k 
store line and on Saturday you 
will find your lint collection. 

Taurus: You unearth one of those 
little red tablets the dentist gave 
you as a child to help you locate 
the plaque on your teeth. After 
chewing it for the allotted time, 
you are horrified to realize it ate 
away your teeth. 

Gemini: Electroshock therapy 
cures all your ills with the excep- 
tion of that nervous twitch above 
your eye. Practice sneering but 
make sure no one hits you on the 
back while doing it or your face 
will freeze that way. 

Cancer: The word "nebulous will 


make you happy to say it often. 
Draw a hop scotch board in the 
middle of the quad and keep track 
of the people who just walk over 
It and those who go through with 
the skipping motions. The scien- 
tific community will appreciate 
your findings. 

Leo: This week the stars are 
telling you to be wild, bold and 
courageous, to go out on a limb 
and take chances, to try something 
new that you might regret later 
but what the heck! Ignore the 
stars, be mellow, meek and lethar- 
gic, don't even change your skiv- 
vies, are you going to let a bunch 
of gassy balls of dust and debris 
run your life? 

Virgo: Do not hand in any papers 
that require you to offer your own 
opinion this week. Explain to any 
professors who question you that 
"there ain't nothin' new under the 
sun," sigh heavily and exit the 
room with your head hanging low. 
Your outward manifestation of 
utter dejectedness will definitely 
score you an A. 

Libra: Keep an eye out for things 
that are gray this week. You will 
find tofu appealing to you for the 
first time in your life on Wednes- 
day. Eat some, it can't hurt. 
Always count your change. 

Scorpio: This week begins a 
cycle of truthfulness for the 

Scorpio. Walk around saying 
exactly what you think every 
moment of every day. If you are 
still alive by the end of the week, 
break the cycle by lying to and 
deceiving everyone you know. 

Sagittarius: Picture yourself in 
a boat on a river with tangerine 
trees and marmalade skies. A girl 
with kaleidoscope eyes calls you 
— answer quite slowly. Follow 
her down to a bridge by a fountain. 

Capricorn: Although Sunday is 
traditionally known as the day of 
rest, you must get busy building 
that tree fort you promised your 
roommate. Neglect could result in 
your early demise.

Intramural Update 

September 22, 1995 • THE VILLANOVAN • Page 27 

By GRFX, grkf:nfikli) 

Stti// RffxjrUr 

Tht' 1995 intramural season is 
underway for all three fall sports. 
Softball, which consisted of tour 
naments for the men and co-ed 
leagues, ended on Sept. 10 with 
the VUCHES winning the men's 
tourney and the Bus Drivers 
taking the co-ed title. Soccer also 
began this past Wednesday night 
with a host of games being played. 

Flag football intramurals, Vil- 
lanova's most popular fall intram 
ural sport, began play last week 
with 42 teams competing. Many 
outcomes were close, but some 
were outright blowouts. The 
GoodFellas trounced Fedigan, 58- 
0. The GoodFellas were not the 
only team to post an opening week 
shutout, five other teams blanked 
their opponents. 

This year, the league has been 
restructured into four separate 
divisions which play each day of 
the week from Monday through 
Thursday. Each division has 
approximately five to six teams 
and there are two places of play 
per day— Austin Field and 
Mendel Field. Plans are tenta- 
tively scheduled to have some 
playoff games at Villanova 

Other changes implemented 
this year by new intramural 
director Justin Sell include a $10 
forfeit fee that was to be paid by 
each team prior to the start of the 
season. The rationale behind the 
forfeit fee is to insure that teams 
show up for games, rain or shine. 
If a team forfeits just once, it loses 
the $10 automatically. 

Another change was the 
"spwrtsmanship rating, " which 
was designed so that teams and 
individuals could experienc©^ in- 
tramurals in a fun way and not 
have to worry about harassment 
from other teams. In the past, 
games were often marred by dirty 
play or constant arguing, and as 
a result, this discouraged teams 
and individuals from signing up 
With the new "sportsmanship 
rating," teams that do not main 
tain an average rating of four or 
better will be ineligible for post- 
season play. 

How does the "sportsmanship 
rating" work? 

During each game, any major 
infraction with an official, such 
as a yellow card or an ejection, 
will be marked off with each game 
sheet signifying a character rating 
of under four. Forfeits count as 
a team rating of "zero" for that 
game, so both the $10 and a shot 
at the playoffs may be wasted as 

These changes in the intramu- 
ral structure have been the brain- 
child of new intramural director 
Justin Sell Sell is eager and 
enthusiastic about his new posi- 
tion and is counting on the stn 
dents to fulfill their end of the 
responsiblity. Sell has even been 
participating in games as a way 
of s(^ing things first-hand. He is 
open to suggestions and comments 
and IS l(X)king forward to doin^ 
anvthinK that will improve the 
intramural program

Field hockey team drops two straight matches 


A young field hockey team has struggled early finding the net. The 
squad will try to change its luck against UConn tomorrow. 


StuJJ h'tfxirttr 

The Villanova field hockey 
team struggled through its two 
outings this past weekend and 
came out on the short end in both 
cases. There are some bright spots 
for optimism, though, and hope- 
fully It will just take a little time 
and practice to make the minor 
adjustments to keep this season 
from being a repeat of last year's. 

The women suffered their first 
Big East loss last Friday night in 
a battle against Boston College, 2 
1. Junior Missy Atwell had the 
lone goal for the Wildcats, while 
on the defensive end, freshman 
goalie Sarah Wiggins had seven 
saves on the day. 

"We controlled the whole game, 
but those couple of times we let 
up, they took advantage of them 
and capitalized on those opportun- 
ities," said Head Coach Joanie 

Sunday the team was back 
home, but it did not seem to prove 
to be very advantageous as it 
suffered its first shutout of the 
season 4-0 at the hand of Prov- 
idence, 4-0. The loss dropped the 
Cats' record to 1-4 (0-2 Big East). 

"It was an off game," stated 

Milhous. "The team was leeling 
very frustrated over the past few 
games which truly could have 
gone either way. We are just going 
to lake it step by step." 

All hope should not be lost yet

ing their t)pponents in every

offensive category, except for 
goals. In five games they have 
amassed 58 shots in the circle 
versus the 48 they have received 
from their opponents. They have 
outshot their opponents 11-8 
outside of the circle for a grand 
total of 69 shots on goal this 
season. They also hold a slight 












edge HI [XMialty corners granted, 
2H 26. The problem is they have 
Urn outscored, 12-6. 

"We are shiK)ting very well this 
year, and as long as we keep 
shooting the way we are right 
now, the goals and the confidence 
will both come naturally," said 

In goal, Wiggins has totaled 31 
saves in the first five games, 
earning a highly respectable 72 
percent saves over the season. 
These have been her first expe- 
riences in the world of college field 
hockey and she has shown that 
she can handle the challenge. 

"We are in a little bit of a rut 
right now, but we are working 
hard to get out of it," commented 
junior captain Jill Bosile. "We 
have been putting in a lot of extra 
practice in order to work out those 
little kinks which have been 
keeping us from winning those 
close games." 

The field hockey team travels 
to the University of Connecticut 
tomorrow, but will be back here 
in action Wednesday, Sept. 17 
against St. Joseph's University 
and again Thursday, Sept. 18 
versus LaSalle. Both games will

Inexperienced women's tennis 
loses to Lehigh and Rutgers 

September 22, 1995 • THE VILLANOVAN • Page 29 


Staff Reporhr 

As the season gets on its way, 
the fresh, young women's tennis 
squad has already had its ups and 
downs. With the loss of two major 
starters to graduation a year ago, 
the team is in the process of 

"We're a tough team, but we're 
not the strongest team," com 
mented Head Coach Bob Batman. 
"Through the season we will be 
gaining experience." 

The young squad, made up of 
mostly first-year students and 
sophomores, has only a handful 
of experienced upperclassmen. 
One first-year player has stood 
above the rest. Jen Bonner has 
plowed into the lineup, straight to 
the No. 1 position for the Cats. 
Thus far, she has compiled an 
even personal record of 2-2 in her 
early collegiate career. 

'Nova's tough schedule con- 
tinued with a visit from Lehigh 
University. Though the Cats 
started out on the right foot with 
doubles jplay, they suqcumbed to 
the visiting squad in singles play.

national title for the 
sixth straight season. 

riiough the team recorded its 
third loss of the early season, S

players will not go overlooked. 

I^eading the way last Tuesday, 
Bonner and doubles partner, jun 
ior Chris Grasso, broke away 
.early to take a lead they would 
never lose. At 5-4, the Cats had 
a long unbelievable rally, starting 
with baseline play and extending 
to net play. Ending with a smash 
ing overhead by Grasso, the pair 
registered an 8-4 proset win over 
their visiting opponents.

One court away, junior Erin

as possible. For her first time back

to sophomores Meg Daniels and

up to Daniels to serve out the 
match at 7 5. Daniels succeeded 
and the two registered their first 
win together this season, 8-5. 

In singles play, Bonner was the 
lone victor for the Cats. Crushing 
her opponent in the first set, 6- 
1, her Lehigh opponent tried to 
make a comeback in the second 
set, but failed. Bonner's consis-

second and final set 6-4.

matchup against 'Nova. The very 
tough, newly initiated Big East 
team trounced the squad and

Senior forward Julie Fiister 
providing offensive power 


Sports Editor 

Any lingering questions regard- 
ing the women's soccer team's 
ability to score have been answer- 
ed. The answer's name is senior 
forward Julie Fiister. 

In what is still a young season, 
Fiister has taken charge of the 
squad's offense, scoring five goals 
and notching two assists for 12 
points against the likes of Big East 
foe St. John's and nationally 
ranked Penn State. 

The questions arose after the 
Cats lost two key forwards, one 
to graduation and one to injury, 
before the 1995 campaign. To fill 
the gap, Fiister was moved up to 
forward from her familiar midfield 
slot. But forward is certainly not 
foreign to the New York native. 

"I played forward in high 
school," Fiister said. "It's like I'm 
finally getting back to normal." 

It hasn't taken Julie long to 
acclimate. She currently leads the 
team in shots taken. More impor 
tant, Fiister has already proven 
that she can make them count. 
Last Saturday, Julie scored the 
game-winning goal against St. 
Johns for the Cats' 1-0 victory. 

Flister's offensive flourish is 
not a surprise. In 13 games last 
season, Julie scored five goals and 
added seven assists for 17 points. 
But her improvement is still a 
marked one from last season. The 
team has played six games and 
she has one less goal than all of 
last year. According to Fiister, it's 
all in the effort. 

"I've improved as a dedicated 
player," Julie said. "I go into every 
game very committed, and I give 
110 percent." 

Accordingly, Fiister says the 
whole team has been playing with 
a lot of heart. Against 17th ranked 
Penn State, Julie found the net 
three times, giving 'Nova the 3 

1 win. But she stressed that if it 
wasn't for the whole team playing 
solid, there would be no goals for 
her to score. 

"The team as a whole played 
up," Fiister said. "I was just there 
to finish." 

As for the rest of the offense, 
Fiister is flanked with plenty of 
talent. Maura McGee, a highly 
touted forward who recently 
transferred from George Mason, 
joins sophomore Nicole Posillico, 
who is the Cats' leading return- 
ing scorer. 

"We have one of the top forward 
lines around," Julie said. 

'Nova certainly has enough 
offensive threats, all of whom 
could, and should, challenge Fiis- 
ter for the team lead in goals 
scored. Which is all the better for 
the Cats. 

"I don't care who scores," Julie 
said. "If we play as a team we can 
do anything." 

The Wildcats just might if 
Flister's team continues. The 
women take on Providence College 
tomorrow at 12 p.m. on the West 
Campus field.

Women's cross country takes 
second place at Fordham 


Junior Krestena Sullivan captured top honors at the Fordham 
Invitational. Her efforts propelled the team to a second place finish. 

Come watch the women's 

soccer team take on Big 

East rival Providence 

tomorrow at 12 p.m. on the 

West Campus field. 


Assistant Sports Editor 

The No. 1 ranked women's 
cross country team travelled to 
Bronx, N.Y., last weekend for the 
Fordham Invitational, finishing a 
strong second in a 24-team field. 
The Wildcats were unable to 
muster a victory, landing just four 
points out of the top spot occupied 
by Cornell University. 

Even without the services of 
two of its top runners, Villanova 
easily outran the rest of its oppo- 
nents as the third place finisher, 
Delaware, finished a lengthy 43 
points off 'Nova's pace. The Cats' 
second place finish marked the 
first time in the last five cross 
country events that they did not 
finish in the top position. 

"I was very happy because it 
was a good overall effort highligh- 
ted by excellent individual perfor 
mances," said Head Coach John 
Marshall. "I was very pleased 
with the performance in the 
absence of Jen Rhines and Carrie 

Rhines, the defending NCAA 
cross country champion, did not 
run because she was preparing for 
tomorrow's meet in Boston. To! 
lefson, a super freshman from 

Dawson, Minn., did not compete 
because Marshall felt it was too 
early for her to run after compet 
ing heavily in late August. 

Even though the Wildcats were 
missing two of their top runners, 
they did have some stellar indi- 
vidual performances, finishing 
five runners in the top 30, three 
in the top 10. 

Junior Krestena Sullivan easily 
took the top honors, taking charge 
of the race early and crossing the 
finish line almsot one-half-minute 
ahead of the rest of the field. The 
Ontario native's time of 17:47 was 
only 23 seconds off her personal 
best for 5000m. 

"I think this was a great meet 
for Krestena," stated Marshall. 
"She ran really well." 

Right behind Sullivan were 
teammates Knstinejost and Stacy 
Robinson. Jost, a freshman edu 
cation major, placed fourth in the 
race with a time of 18:25, while 
Robinson, a senior, crossed the 
line 20 seconds later for a seventh 
place finish. 

Also finishing in the top 30 were 
two more freshman; Sarah 
Brandy and Katy Kelly. Brandy 
finished 18th in the competition 
with a time of 19:15 while Kelly 
followed her 12 seconds later, 

crossing in the 23rd spot. 

In their first collegiate event, 
Jost, Brandy and Kelly showed 
that they are ready to compete 
with the more experienced 
runners. These freshmen will 
undoubtedly be looked upon to 
continue their efforts if the team 
is to vie for the NCAA champion- 
ship again this year. 

"Half of our team is freshmen 
and we're really going to need 
production out of them, so I was 
very happy to see that they went 
out and just ran and ran very 
aggressively," said Marshall. 

With the second place finish at 
Fordham, Villanova's preseason 
No. 1 national ranking may be in 
jeopardy when the next poll is 
released. How Villanova is ranked, 
though, does not concern 

"The rankings are very good for 
publicity, but not necessarily good 
for performance. We don't pay too 
much attention to the rankings." 

It will be seen whether 'Nova 
can regain its dominating form as 
the Wildcats next travel to Boston, 
Mass., tomorrow for the Boston 
Invitational. The full squad, in- 
cluding Rhines and Tollefson, is 
expected to run in this event.

"I felt I was competent," saut 
Scott "1 know our line can get

A final death blow was struck 
to Villanova early in the fourth 
quart<'r as Hamlett found a wide 
open Coleman for an uncontested 
69 yard touchdowii. Hamlett fin

problem was that it seemed to 
abandon the run early in the 
second half In fact, during the

contrast to 36 pass plays. Mar

highs in b<^)th attempts (60) and 
completions (28), was only 14 of 
.36 after intermission. The predic 
table play calling seemed to 
hamper the passing offense and 
Nova finished with less than four 
yards per pass attempt 

"1 think that Tom lost his 
rhythm a little bit in the fourth 
quarter," said Talley. 

Marchese, who was listed as a 
backup coming out of preseason, 
is 46 of 98 for 472 yards in his 
first two games. He has two 
touchdown passes and five 

"Had he not done the job in the

While the 28 7 loss was disap

astating impact will he felt weeks 
from now as All-American line 
backer Tyrone Frazier was side 
lined with an injured knee 

"That's really a tragedy for us," 
said Talley. 

It's the second time in as many

Men's soccer gets first win against Philly Textile 


The men's soccer team collected its first win of the year against Philadelphia Textile. The team 
is now looking forward to hosting some Big East opponents. 

IMen place sixth at tourney 


Staff Reporter 

The men's cross-country team 
ran in its first meet this past 
Saturday at the Fordham Invita- 
tional. The team's scorers all 
finished together in a pack, but 
only managed a sixth place finish. 
A high finish was not the team's 
primary objective for the meet, 
however. Their goal was to gain 
experience on the rigorous course 
at VanCoutland Park. 

"Our main objective was just 
to get on the course which will 
be the site of this year's Big East 
Championships," said second 
year Head Coach John Marshall. 
"We hadn't run there in two years 
and we have a lot of freshmen who 
are unfamiliar with the course. 
They will need this experience. 
We also wanted to run well to 
gether, as a team." 

The team was led by seniors 
Ken Nason and Kevin Christiani. 
who were first and second on the 
team, respectively. 

"The experience of the seniors 
will be the heart and soul of this 
team," said Marshall. 

In addition to Nason and Chris- 
tiani, strong efforts were turned 
in by seniors Todd Tressler and 
Stephen Howard. 

Marshall also believed the fresh 
men did a good job working to 
gether with the seniors. Especially 
strong were freshmen Coulby 
Dunn and Oisin Crowley. They, 
along with Nason, Christiani and 
Tressler, finished together with a 
time of 26:42 on the punishing, 
five-mile course. Nason was 33rd 
overall, followed by Christiani 
(34th), Dunn (36th). Crowley 
(37th) and Tressler (38th). 

"We were especially concerned 
about injuries on such a difficult 
course," said Marshall. 

There are no apparent, serious 
injuries, so in the end. Marshall 
was satisfied with how the meet 

"1 was very pleased with the 

complete team effort that the men 
turned in," he said. 

This Saturday the team travels 
to Boston's Franklin Park for the 
Boston Invitational. Many of the 
team's objectives will be the same. 

"Franklin Park is the site of this 
year's NCAA Regional Meet," 
Marshall said. "We'll again be 
looking to gain valuable expe- 
rience on the course, and the 
competition will be stiffer. In 
addition, we look for a steady, 
solid improvement of 10-15 se- 
conds per week from each 

Despite the team's lackluster 
overall finish, this meet was a 
good sign for the Cats' season. A 
number of the seniors are out- 
standing and were running well 
within themselves. The freshmen, 
particularly Pennsylvania state 
high school 1600-meter champ 
Dunn and Irish import Crowley, 
show great promise. When it is 
time to break loose, they should 
all be ready to go.

After a heartbreaking loss to 
deorgetown last week, the Villan 
ova men's sixxer team found itself 
staring at an 0-3 1 record. 

The Cats fell behind early, and 
after a rebound was knocked 
home by a Hoya midfielder it was 
30 with about 30 minutes left to 
play. This goal seemed to awaken 
a Villanova team that played in 
a slow motion throughout the first 

"We came out flat," said senior 
co-captain Doug Nevins. "With 
about 20 minutes to go, we started 

Nevins blasted one from close 
to 30 yards out that deflected off 
the post to bring the Cats within 
one goal. This goal followed junior 
Mike Paskey's goal off a nice 
crossing pass from midfielder 
Barry Smith. 

Then things got interesting. 
With under a minute left in the 
game, sophomore James Corcoran 
ripped a shot on the Georgetown 
net. Thje ball was on-line but 
barely Wt the post and deflected 
out of bounds. The Cats were a 
matter of inches from sending the 
game into overtime. Instead, they 
suffered a 3-2 setback. 

Three days later, the Cats 
travelled to face local rival Philly 
Textile. Aware of how its slow 
start hurt it in its previous game. 

'Nova came out attacking and took 
an early 2-0 lead. 

However, in the second half.

Doug Nevins then took the 
game intcj his own hands. The 
senior scored on two direct kicks, 
including the game winner in 
double overtime, to lead the Cats 
to their first victory of the season, 

For the senior defender, it was 
just another day's work.

Villanova will travel to the

though they are 0-3 in the confer

favorable now that teams will be 
playing them in their own back 
yard. The team is confident and 
is ready to take on the Big East. 

"After getting the first three

Fightin' Blue Hens KO Wildcats, 28-7 


Sports Editor 

It was another tale of missed 
opportunities for Villanova. 

"We just have to execute our 
offense a httle better," said senior 
quarterback Tom Marchese. 

Indeed, four interceptions and 
a fumble, when coupled with four 
possessions in the red zone that 
netted zero points, proved devas 
tatmg. Delaware, which came into 
the game ranked eleventh na- 
tionally, secured a 28-7 victory. 

However, for nearly an entire 
half, the game was a lesson in 
parity. The Fighting Blue Hens 
jumped on top in the second 
quarter when defensive back 
Dorrell Green picked off a Mar- 
chese pass at the 24 yardline and 
waltzed into the endzone for the 
first score. Delaware did a good 
job of disguising its coverage 
scheme and the deception paid off 
as Green was able to easily slide 
in front of the 'Nova receiver. 

"That was a spark for us," said 
Delaware Head Coach Tubby 


Undaunted, the Cats scored 
seven minutes later as Marchese 
hit senior Eric Hunt with pin- 
point accuracy on a post pattern 
from nine yards out. With just 
under three miutes to play in the 
half, it appeared as though the 
teams would enter the locker 
rooms tied. 

Delaware's Leo Hamlett had 
more ambitious intentions, 
though, as he successfully guided 
a two-minute offense that culmi- 
nated in a five yard touchdown 


Delaware quarterback Leo Hamlett played a key role in the Blue Hens' victory, guiding his offense 
to 28 points. Villanova had plenty of opportunities to keep pace with Delaware, but was unable 
to capitalize inside the Blue Hens' 20 yardline. 

Water polo splits against 
nationally ranked teams 


Staff Reporter 

With its sights set mi surpass- 
ing last year's success and qua! 
ifying for the NCAA's, the men's 
water polo team continues to 
prove it is one of the top teams 
in the East. Last wcckfiui, the 
Wildcats fought against two iia 
tionally ranked teams. Bucknell 
(No. 21) and SlipixTv K.K-k (No. 
20). The team turned in a stellar 
performance in a 17-10 victory 
over Burkneil, but this momen 
turn did not carry over into their 
next match as Slippery Rock 
handed them a 14 H loss. 

In the Bucknell match, sopho 
more Darren Hardel scored an 
impressive six goals, while junior 
I'aul Granneman contributed 
another five to lead the way for 
a 'Nova victory. Dave Prusa 
kowski tallied three goals, while 

Kevin Driscoll, John Kiley and 
Brian Tomsheck scored a goal 
apiece. Senior Captain Ben IgcK' 
was phenomenal in goal as he 
recorded 20 saves to clinch the 
victory. Prusakowski and Brian 
Scull stepiK'd up on defense to 
prevent any further opposition 
from Bucknell 

"Two of our starters are hurt 
iiK'ht now, that's Jamie Randall 
and Pat Kain," said l^'X' "1' "^ 
kind of disapi)ointing lor the team 
riKht now We want them back on 
the team iH-cause they add more 
depth to balance out the team." 

The absence of these two play- 
ers was crucial in the loss to 
Slippery Kock Despite Hardel 
turning in five goals, along with 
two goals by Kiley and another by 
Tomshetk, 'Nova could not man 
age to slide by Slippery Rock. In 
the defeat. Igoe captured 19 saves 

Though this loss was a minor 

setback, the Wildcats still boast 
a 41 record, and can savor last 
week's No. If) ranking in the 
College Water Polo Coaches Asso- 
ciation |X)11. 

"We can definitely surpass last 
year's goals," said Igoe. "We 
ended (m a bad note last year by 
losing our last three games. But 
we're definitely coming back, 
coming back a lot stronger than 
we were last vear." 

IgcM's o[)tiniism and leadership 
should carry the t«>am to greater 
heights in their (]uest to fw the 
top team in the Hast. 

"We just have to wait and see 
how things unfold," said Ig'x- 

This weekend will feature the 
Wildcats' final home p<Tforman 
ces as the rest of the sea.son takes 
them cm the road. They face No. 
17 Queens on Saturday at 10:45 
a.m. and lona at ,'S pm at the 
duPont p(K)l 

by Pat Williams on an inside 
reverse with only ten seconds 
remaining in the half. 

"I've never seen him do that 
before," said Coach Raymond. 

Aside from Williams' run, Ha 
mlett either ran or threw the ball 
on the each of the other 1 1 plays. 

"He's on his own," said Ray- 
mond. "He goes to his own per- 
sonal computer." 

"We were just trying to get out 
of bounds and save time," said 
Hamlett. "As a team we under- 
stand [the two minute offense] 
more, so we can go out there and 
know what we're doing." 

Despite the disheartening end 
to the first half, Villanova Head 
Coach Andy Talley was content. 

"I was really pleased at halftime 
because I really felt like we played 
toe-to-toe with them," he said. 

Talley had reason to be pleased. 
Freshman tailback Todd Golemi, 
who received his first start in 
place of the recovering Anthony 
Cowsette, exploded for 110 yards 
in the first half alone. He finished 
with 137 yards on 18 carries for 
a 7.6 yard average. Since he is a 
true freshman, Golemi's emer- 
gence is especially encouraging. 

"Obviously, there's a few things 
I need to work on," he said. 
"Everything is new to me and I'm 
still adjusting. You could tell I had 
the jitters." 

The defense had kept the Blue 
Hen rushing attack relatively 
quiet in the first half as it con- 
sistently shut down the quarter 
back option. Halfback Pat Willi- 
ams, who had rushed for over 100 
yards in Delaware's previous 

game, had lost five yards on seven 
carries. He finished with five total 
yards on 11 carries. 

But things got ugly for 'Nova 
after it recovered a fumble near 
midf ield early in the third quarter. 
Marchese successfully guided the 
team down to the three yardline 
and it appeared as though the Cats 
would tie the game. But on third 
down, Marchese was intercepted 
in the endzone. 

"We had Josh Dolbin wide open 
in the endzone and Tommy just 
didn't see him," said Talley. 

Delaware then mounted a bruis- 
ing U-play drive that ended in a 
five yard scamper by Norman 
Coleman on a misdirection play. 
Running back Marvell Scott was 
the story of the drive as his 
number was called eight times.

Villanova vs. James Madison 
1 p.m. tomorrow at Villanova Stadium 

James Madison, which was 
ranked No. 6 nationally before 
last weekend, is coming off a 
disappointing loss to No. 1 
ranked McNeese State. JMII 
led 17-0 in the second quarter 
and owned a 24-6 lead in the 
second half. The Dukes' offense 
collapsed, and the top team in 
the nation rallied for 24 unan 
swered points. 

Villanova, coming off a 28- 
7 loss to nationally ranked 
Delaware, enters the game 
without its best defensive 
(Tyrone Prazier) and offensive 
(Brian Finneran) players. 

JMU was ranked as high as 
No. 3 in some preseason pub 
lications and is led by senior 
quarterback Mike Cawley. The 
Dukes do not have many weak 

nesses, but three notable ones 
have been pass protection, 
punting and third down con 
versions. James Madison has 
outscored its opponents 34-7 in 
the first quarter this year, so 
'Nova will have to come out 


The water polo team continued to play against nationally ranked 
teaniN and hopes to become the top team in the East.

Town Meeting looks 
at Homecoming 


Measures have been taken to reduce the number of tmderage drinking problems at this year's

Recruitment questions raJsed 


News Editor 


Sports Editor 

Alumnus Remo Ciccone has 
raised allegations concerning 
possible NCAA violations pertain- 
ing to the University's recruit- 
ment of men's basketball player 
Rafal Bigus. The ViIlanovan has 
obtained an advance copy of the 
November 1995 issue of The Fan 
in which Ciccone, a former high 
school math teacher, claims he 
made a deal with the Rev. Edward 
Hastings, O.S.A., a University 
theology professor, to tutor Bigus 
for the Scholastic Aptitude Test 

(SAT) and to influence him to 
attend Villanova University. 

"We immediately contacted the 
NCAA in June of 1995, and, while 
fully cooperating with them, have 
answered all of their questions 
regarding this matter," said Vil- 
lanova Athletic Director Gene 
UeFilippo. "At this time, we will 
have no further comment, but will 
answer any and all questions after 
this matter has been resolved. 

School officials cannot comment 
further on the matter because of 
legal concerns, but sources close 
to the situation are confident that 
the program will earn its 

WIP 610 radio personality Mike 
Missanelli, who wrote the article. 

Career Week attracts 
employers to campus 

contends that if Ciccone's allega- 
tions are true, the basketball 
program would be guilty of vio- 
lating NCAA by-law 13, which 
bars faculty members or alumni 
from actively aiding the recruiting 
of a prospective student-athlete. 
Ciccone alleges that Hastings 
promised to help him gain admit 
tance to a training program for 
Augustinian priests in return for 
tutoring the athlete. 

Bigus, a 7-foot- 1 exchange stu 
dent from Poland who scored 16 
points per game for Archbishop 
Carroll High School last year and 
led the team to its first champion 
ship, had difficulty achieving the

The Student Government Asso 
ciation (SGA), the Intra-fraternity 
Council (IPX) and the Panhellenic 
Council hosted the University's 
first Town Meeting this year on 
Sept. 26. Interested students and 
faculty members gathered in the 
Italian Kitchen to discuss the 
issues and new proc^edures of 
Homecoming '95. 

Director of Alumni Affairs and 
Chair of this year's Homec:oming 
committee Gary Olsen opened the 
forum by summarizing the sche 
dule and regulations of this year's 
event. There will be two fenced 
in areas on Sheehan Beach. Nearly 
25 percent of the field will be 
designated for those students and 
alumni who are of legal drinking 
age. The remaining portion of the 
field will be sectioned off for the 
rest of the student body. Those 
people who are over the age of 21 
will have the opportunity to 
purchase alcholic beverages, pro- 
vided that they consume them 
within the drinking area of Shee 
han Beach. Radnor police officials 
wiU iMjon h»wi to haadle underage 
drinkers or anyone who may 
become unruly. 

The Wildcard computer system 
will be programmed to differen 
tiate between those students who 
are and who are not of legal 
drinking age. Only those students 
who see a green light appear as 
their card is swiped through the 
reader will receive a bracelet and 
will have access to the drinking 
section of Sheehan Beach. "This 
should be a much faster and more 
effective method of admission 
than previous years," said Olsen 
"The only difference is that fake 
I.D.'s will not work," he added. 

A list of alumni will be present 
at the gate to determine who may 
enter the field. A special desk will 
be set up on the field for anyone 
with specific questions regarding 


Both areas of Sheehan Beach 
will have full views of a stage 
which IS scheduled to feature such 
acts as Rugby Road, Life in 
General and Wanderlust. "It 
should be a nice, fun day. provided 
that It is not predicated to getting 
drunk," said Olsen. 

One student questioned the 
scheduling of Wanderlust, Home- 
coming '9rVs headlining band, 
during the football game. "We|the 
Homecoming committee] did not 
feel that it would be practical to 
shut everything down during the 
game," said Olsen. Incentives for 
attending the game will mclude 
prize drawings and half-time 

Some students voiced their 
concern that the segregation of 
the student body and alumni, as 
well as the exclusion of non- 
Villanovans defeated the overall of Homecoming. "The 
committee believes that Home- 
coming is a day for all Villano- 
vans," said Olsen. "We simply do 
not have the facilities or man- 
power to provide for all these 
people," he added. 

Vandalism also plays a role in 
the decision to exclude outsiders. 
"What's to stop those with no 
connection to this school? Home- 
coming was never intended to be 
the best party in the Philadelphia 
area," said Olsen. 

Other students complained that 
the University's new Homecoming 
regulations do not treat students 
like adults. "This is probably one 
of the only instances that Villan 
ova does treat students like 
adults," said the Rev. John P. 
Stack, OS. A., dean of Students. 
"People have consistently shown 
that when you throw alcohol into 
the picture, they will not always 
act like adults. It is unfortunate 
that the present student body has 
to pay for the sins of the past 10 
years," he added

The Office of Career Planning 
and Placement held its annual 
Career Week Sept. 23-28 in which 
students participated in several 
events to help them in their job 
search. Parents' Weekend career 
forums took place on Sept. 23. In 
these forums, parents spoke about 
their careers and offered advice to 
students about succeeding in 
different fields. According to 
Kathy Bracken, Career Planning 
and Placement recruiting assist 
ant, the maVketing and sales fields 
were popular. 

"Resumaniar" was held on Sept. 
25. This event allowed students 
to have their resumes reviewed 
and critiqued by the office's career 
coun.selors and by organizational 
repre.sentatives. These critiques 
were offered on a walk-in basis, 
and approximately 100 students 
took advantage of the service. 

Career-Day — "A Bridge to the 
Future" was held in the Connelly 
Center's Villanova Room on Wed 

nesday. Bracken said 61 compan- 
ies were on hand for the event to 
offer general information about 
employment and internship op- 
portunities available to students. 
"We've heard a lot of people have 
gotten jobs through contacts they 
met on Career Day," she said, 
adding that the forum provides a 
great chance to network. 

"In past years, we had to call 
people to make sure they were 
coming," said Bracken. This year, 
however, the office had to reject 
some companies' offers to partic- 
ipate. She said the day gives firms 
a good opportunity to publicize 
themselves to students of t|ie 
University. Some of the organiza 
tions that had booths at the fair 
were Bell Atlantic, the Peace 
Corps, Price Waterhouse and 
Strawbridge and Clothier. The 
office will hold another career fair 
on Jan. .'U Bracken said the 
January fair is not as well attended 
as the one held in the fall which 
draws approximately 1.000

Public Safety focuses on crime prevention 


Slull Reporter 

The statistics and rates of crime 
for 1994 on campus show that 
iriminal incidents are minimal 
but dcMKCur. Roughly five percent 
of students and employees are 
directly affected by crime accord- 
ing to the report compiled by the 
department of Public Safety. "If 
you l(K)k at our stats and compare 
them to other schools, we are in 
pretty g(x)d shajx" but that doesn't 
mean we should be less vigilant 
about crime," said Jeffrey Horton, 
director of Public Safety. 

A proactive stance has been 
taken by Public Safety to prevent 
crime according to Horton and 
Senior Investigator David Mann. 
More cooperative programs with 
the University Center for Drug 

and Alcohol Assistance, presenta- 
tions by investigators on sexual 
assault, the Rape Aggression 
Defense (RAD) course taught by 
female officers certified in the 12 
hour program and crime preven 
tion expos in the Connelly Center 
are offered for students as prev- 
entive methods. 

Public Safety has lobbied for 
efforts in response to many inci 
dents, [.astyear, 188 thefts (taking 
or controlling another's property), 
24 burglaries (unlawful entry 
with the intent to commit a crime) 
and two rapes were the major 
offenses reported to Public Safety. 

Students are now allowed to 
take book bags in to the cafeterias 
which has curbed the theft of book 
bags by 30 percent. The RAD 
program and other seminars about 
sexual assault are also responsive 

measures. Of the part II offenses, 
Mf) cases of vandalism, (Wy alcohol 
violations and seven narcotics 
offenses were recorded. There 
were 167 unclassified incidents 
that consisted mostly of telephone 
harassment. The Telecommuni 
cations department then scram 
bled telephone numbers so they 
were no longer arranged by dor 
niitory and floor. It has also been 
suggested that the directory be 
formatted to list the first initial 
of the first name alone and the 
last name. "The University is 
committed to the safety and 
welfare of students on the con- 
stant and daily basis," according 
to Mann. 

So far this semester, there have 
been several thefts, especially of 
credit cards, four narcotics of- 
fenses and many alcohol related 

violations. There has been no 
repcjrted sexual assault. 

Crime statistics are released by 
colleges and universities in com- 
pliance with state law. The de- 
partment of Public Safety believes 
this is very positive for the Uni- 
versity. "It is good [that the 
statistics are published] because 
an informed community can \)€ a 
more proactive community to help 
deter crime," said Horton. As an 
investigator, Mann encourages 
students to make sure incidents 
in the dormitories are not just 
reported to Resident Assistants 
but Public Safety as well so they 
may be able to pick up the pattern 
of a criminal. Horton also suggests 
that students and staff use go(xi 
judgment, utilize available servi- 
ces, esf)ecially the escort services 
at night.

Control of occu- 
pied West Bank 
transferred to 

JERUSALEM - A major 
agreement between Israel and 
the Palestinians was concluded 
on Monday that provides for 
much of the occupied West 
Bank to be controlled by its 
Arab residents. 

The Israeli Prime Minister, 
Shimon Peres, and the Pales- 
tine Liberation Organization 
leader, Yasir Arafat, signed the 
agreement in Taba, Egypt, 
after overcoming the major 
issue of security for the Jewish 
residents in Hebron, whichis 
surrounded by Arabs. 

This new agreement in- 
cludes specific details regard- 
ing the withdrawal of Israeli 
troops from much of the ter ' 
ritory which has been occupied 
by Israel since the war in 1%7. 
Provisions also exist for the 
transfer of authority to an 

elected Palestinian Council by 
the end of the century. 

"I really feel the Lord has 
offered us a real opportunity to 
change the course of hopeless- 
ness and desperation and 
bloodshed into something more 
promising, more noble, more 
humane," said Peres. 

Congress plans 
for stricter immi- 
gration policies 

WASHINGTON - Congress 
is currently considering initiat 
ing changes in the country's 
immigration laws, the most 
restrictive changes in 71 years. 
The course of action coincides 
with public anger over illegal 
immigration to the country. 

The bills in the House and 
Senate would call for stricter 
laws regarding illegal immigra 
tion, as well as changing the 
legal immigration laws enacted 
in 1924. For the first time since 
then, the number of foreign- 
born people admitted legally to 
the United States would be 

American industries lead the 
way for criticism, charging 

that they need more profession- 
als than this country produces. 
However, proponents of the 
bills claim that with cutbacks 
in the military and aerospace 
industry a shortage of such 
professionals does not exist. 
The reduction of skill-based 
immigration is necessary to 
protect college graduates in the 
job market. 

Shooting spree 
leaves teen-age 
gunman and 11 
others dead in 

TOULON, France - A 16- 
year-old boy murdered his 
parents and brother at home 
and then walked to a nearby 
village and opened fire on a 
town square killing eight oth 
ers before killing himself. 

It has been marked as 
France's worst multiple 
murders since 1989. The mo- 
tive remains unclear. 

Neighbors of the teenager, 
identified as Eric Borel, told 
stories of the boy's room con- 
taining posters of Hitler and 
neo-Nazi themes. 

The killings began when the 
boy used a hammer and a 
baseball bat to kill his family. 
He then walked to the village 
where he turned his hunting 
rifle on the square. 

Wal-Mart plans 
to restock line of 

MIAMI - Wal-Mart has 
issued an apology for a decision 
made to pull T-shirts with the 
slogan "Someday a woman will 
be president." The shirts were 
pulled in late August after 
some customers claimed that 
the shirts were offensive. 

The design on the shirt 
features the girl Margaret who 
appears in the "Dennis the 
Menace" cartoon strip stand- 
ing in front of the White House 
declaring the words about a 
future female president. 

The complaining customers 
"found the T-shirts to be of a 
political nature that they didn't 
agree with," said Jay Allen, the 
company's vice president of 
corporate affairs. Allen de- 
clined to elaborate.

HA W committee stresses 
education and action 


News Editor 

Hunger Awareness Week 
(HAW) is scheduled for the week 
of Nov. 12 to 18, said the Rev. 
Owen R. Jackson, O.S.A., at a 
preliminary meeting held Tues 
day. The week is planned for the 
days prior to Thanksgiving "so we 
can raise awareness of people who 
are hungry," said Jackson. 

Education is a primary goal of 
the week, Jackson said. It is 
important to find out who the 
hungry people are and to discover 
that the major reason for hunger 
is poverty. Poverty results from 
the lack of available employment. 
"We need to study the problem of 
hunger, and in addition, help 
others," he added. 
. HAW, which is sponsored by 
Campus Ministry, provides the 
opportunity to raise money, via 
collections and fasting, to benefit 
Oxfam America, an international 
relief agency. "In the past three 
years the efforts have raised 
around $25,(XX) which assisted 
several fishing villages in the 
Sudan. The funds were able to 
provide them with hooks, boats 
and nets so people could fish and 
make a living," said Jackson. In 
the 23 years of HAW's existence, 
proceeds have also helped build 
schools in Haiti and the Philip- 
pines, as well as a learning center 
in Peru. 

A week of activities is in the 
process of being finalized. Sunday 
Masses will begin the week and 
"will f(X-us on the issue of hunger. 
We will pray that leaders of the 
world will help and that we will 
become more aware. We will offer 
prayers for people's generosity 
with their time and money," 
Jackson said. 

A three-mile Run/Bike/Skate 
for Hunger event will take place 
Nov. 13, where participants sign 
up with others sponsoring them 
for each mile. NROTC is assisting 
in coordinating the run and map- 
ping out the course, he added. A 
concert is also in the works for 
that evening. Information con- 
cerning hunger awareness will be 
available in the dining halls that

lunches and have the money 
donated to the HAW campaign, 
will be on Tuesday outside of the 
dining halls. Crafts from third 
world countries will be on sale in 
the Connelly Center. Education 
tables will be set up there as well, 
said Jackson. Thursday has been 
planned for Fast Day, and a five- 
mile run for Saturday. 

Students may become involved 
in HAW through participation in 
any one of the various committees. 
A second meeting has been set for 
Thursday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. in St. 
Rita's Chapel. 


Parents Weekend: 

Students gathered with their parents at last week's football game which was just one of the many 
events scheduled for the annual Parents Weekend. Other activities included the Villanova 
Boardwalk, a Parents Mass in duPont Pavilion.

Career Week events 

(Continued from page I) 

To prepare for Career Day, 
three presentations on "How to 
Make a Career Fair Work for You" 
were held on Sept. 26. The purpose 
of these offerings was to make 
students aware of what to expect 
from a career fair and how to get 
maximum benefit from the event. 

The final event of the week was 
a panel discussion of employer 
insights on internships held on 
Thursday. Employers from QVC, 
WHYY TV 12, Voyage House Inc., 
Comcast Metrophone and the 
International Foundation of Em- 
ployee Benefits were available to 
answer questions on part-time 

and full-time internships. Topics 
raised were using internships to 
gain career-related experience 
before graduation and building 
practical experience through in- 
ternships. Internships are becom- 
ing more important to students in 
gaining employment, said Brac- 

The panel on internships was 
a new event this year. Bracken 
said the events of Career Week 
change slightly from year to year. 
Past years have included presen 
tations by recent University grad- 
uates on their first year employ- 
ment experiences and topics such 
as dressing for success.

Villanovans for Life (VFL) is in 
the process of finalizing its plans 
for Right to Life Week, scheduled 
to take place next week. 

The events will b^n Oct. 1 
with the Sunday evening Masses 
being geared toward pro-life peti 
tions, said Jennifer Kusnierczyk, 
president of VFL. Rose vigils and 
reciting of the rosary will follow 
each of the Masses in the grotto, 
she added. 

The VFL will distribute infor 
mation at a table in Connelly 
Center on Tuesday, Wednesday 
and Thursday. Issues surround- 
ing abortion, infanticide and 
euthanasia will be available, said 

Kusnierczyk. 1 he film "The Ec- 
lipse of Reason" is scheduled to 
be shown Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in 
the Center for Peace and Justice 
Education which chronicles a 
woman's experience with abor- 
tion. A charity bingo game is 
planned for Wednesday evening, 
with proceeds to benefit an area 
homeless shelter. A speaker will 
be on campus Thursday night to 
speak on the issue of infanticide. 

VFL has two main goals, said 
Kusnierczyk. First, VFL aims "to 
educate people as to what is going 
on in our country and world." 
Second, the organization serves as 
an outlet "to let Villanova stu 
dents be active in the pro-life 

"We believe that every human 
being, no matter how young or old , 

has a basic right to life," she 

VFL was started in 1973 as a 
result of the Roe v. Wade and Doe 
V. Balton Supreme Court cases. 
The former made abortion legal 
in the United States during the 
first trimester of pregnancy and 
in cases where the health of the 
mother was in jeopardy. The 
latter case defined the health of 
the mother as both physical and 
mental health and basically pro- 
vided legal permission for abor- 
tions to be performed up until the 
ninth month. "The Doe v. Balton 
case is very important, though not 
well-known," said Kusnierczyk. 

VFL was organized at the Uni- 
versity by a group of students who 
wanted to address on-campus the 
issues that arose from these cases.

WXVU tunes in to 
campus needs 

In the coming weeks, the WXVU Radio Station will 
be receiving the results of surveys distributed to about 
300 students. The surveys were given to University 
students to find out what they expect from the campus 
radio station. 

We were not given a copy of the survey, so it is 
impossible for us to guess the exact questions the station 
would like answered. Nevertheless, the survey indicates 
that WXVU is finally looking to change. 

The first thing the Villanova station needs to 
understand is that their purpose is to serve as much of 
the student body as possible. 

As we see it, there are three major problems with 
WXVU that need to be addressed: 

First, the inordinately weak signal must be streng- 
thened. The fact that we at the Villanovan cannot tune 
into WXVU despite our proximity to the radio station 
is a testament to this problem. Perhaps if a more powerful 
antenna was moved to the top of the football press box, 
even off-campus students would be able to tune in. 

Second, the programming needs much more variety. 
It would be wrong to suggest that alternative rock, the 
music predominately played at WXVU, is not diverse. 
However, the fact that there are only a handful of shows 
devoted to music other than alternative and punk rock, 
illustrates the need for more popular music. By no means 
should the station cancel alternative shows, but WXVU 
needs to become more appealing to the average student 
if they hope to increase their listenership. 

Finally, WXVU needs to drastically improve its 
publicity methods. This means the station will have to 
become more campus oriented. Right now, Joe Lopez from 
"Hip Hop Theater" is the only DJ who makes himself 
visible. Other DJ's need to follow suit by playing at social 
functions. Lopez's style is working. The program directors 
at WXVU should also take note of the businesslike 
approach to the station that the sports department 

The surveys will get responses, but will they get 



To the Editor: 

I am writing this letter in 
response to an article that ap- 
peared in last week's Villanovan 
entitled "Keep Jake Nevin's Field- 
house as is." 

The article in question asserted 
that since the Jake Nevin Field- 
house was named for a great 
individual associated with athlet- 
ics, the building should remain an 
athletics facility instead of being 
renovated into a fine arts facility. 

Though I understand and re- 
spect this argument, I feel that the 
issue comes down to a matter of 
priorities. Villanova University is 
not a museumm, however, it is a 
functioning entity that must 
accept change in an effort to better 

As the situation stands now, we 
have adequate athletic facilities. 
On the other hand, Villanova has 
no true fine arts facility. This 
situation is unheard of for a 
university of Villanova 's magni- 

In response to the argument 
that Jake Nevin's name should be 
associated with an athletic facil- 
ity, I propose the following. Re- 
move Jake Nevin's name from the 
fieldhouse, and rename the sta- 
dium the Jake Nevin Stadium. 

The fight to insure Jake Nevin's 
legacy is a noble one, but the 
University must grow and fill its 
needs. Two years ago several 
houses on West Campus were 
demolished to make room for the 
new apartments, and those houses 
were named for deserving [)eople 
also. I am not saying that I think 
it is good to k>se some of those 
memories, I am simply saying that 
it is a necessary part of expansion.

No I.D. needed 
for social life 

To the Editor: 

This letter is written in re- 
sponse to Peter McDonough's 
article "Jiggling the Handle of 
Life." In this article Mr. McDo- 
nough stated that "not having a 

good ID can seriously curb one's 
social life." 

I am sorry to inform you, but 
turning 21 and being able to go 
to the local bars and taverns does 
not instantly give you a social life. 
Now I won't deny that I've ever 
had a fake ID, or that I've been 
to a fraternity party (I'm kind of 
involved with one myself)i but 
this did not make or break my 
social life. 

There are so many other options 
available then going to the bars. 
I don't mean to be a stickler, and 
I never thought I'd write to the 
Villanovan, but the majority of 
the students on this campus are 
under 21, not over. I think my 
social life as an underclassman 
was good and I know that other 
students' social lives will be just 
as good, or even better. 

Pete, no hard feelings. If I ever 
see you out I'll buy you a beer. 
(But not at the Brick Bar,, you're 
right it's too expensive.) And for 
all the UTIs (under 21s), you have 
the rest of your lives to spend in 
crowded, smoky, overpriced dives 
with sticky floors People make 
things social, not beer.

"Gotta go" generation has "gotta' slow down now 


BOSTON - It is rush hour 
when I pull up to my mother's 
apartment. I am still speeding 
internally through the after work 
time zone. The momentum of the 
day is pushing me forward long 
after its engine has turned off. 

Tonight, however, there is a job 
to be done, items on a list to be 
crossed off, a mission to be ac 
complished. My mother is moving, 
downsizing from one apartment to 
another, and we have all pledged 
to help. 

My assigned task is to begin to 
t riage the stuff of her life. To pare 
down and sort out which items 
from the past will go with her to 
the future. So I arrive from the 
office with my mind on efficiency 
and my eye on my watch. 

Together we go through the 
rooms This coat hasn't been 
worn in years. There is no room 
in the new apartment for this 
fable Surely, this skirt is out of 
style Maybe the kids would want 
these dishes Nolxxiy uses ash 
trays anymore This lamp has got 

It takes a half hour of such 
spcM-ding before I notice that my 

mother is in a different lane, 
traveling at a different pace 
altogether. While I am urging 
decisions, she is telling life stories. 
While I am trying to finish this 
job and get on to the next at home, 
she is considering this moment in 
her life. 

She wants to talk about the 
friend who gave her this scarf, 
alx)ut the thousand family dinners 
around that dining room table, 
about the day she tx)ught the 
lamp. She wants to say goodbye 
to these pieces of her past, one by 
one, before she lets them go. 

Finally seeing this, I shift gears. 
I slow down and sit down. And 
doing so, I realize how easy it is 
to speed through important mo- 
ments without even noticing. 

I have a friend whose mother 
says with good humor that our 
whole generation should wear T- 
shirts that read, "Gotta Go." We 
are forever in a rush. We do drive- 
by visits. 

They call us the sandwich 
generation because so many of us 
are caught between parents and 
children, work and home. But 
maybe we're named after the one 
Item on the menu made to be taken 
on the run. 

It is not just the tasks of life 
that we rush through. Not just the 
cleaning, the shopping, the com- 
muting, the everyday mainte- 
nance. We also manage emotions 
with one foot on the running 
board. We even short-cut the 
experiences of life. 

This summer, a teacher I know 
told me a family story so over-the- 
top that it might have been penned 
by John Irving. Heading for the car 
one morning, her family disco- 
vered that their cat had been 
crushed by the automatic garage 
door. . . , 

As horrible as this was, what 
lingered in her mind months later 
was the aftermath. In their morn- 
ing frenzy, they barely had time 
to bury the cat and less time to 
cry before the three of them, 
deeply shaken, had to race off to 
their jobs and classes. 

We asked each other what it 
meant that so many people didn't 
have time to mourn, to feel these 
moments in their lives. For some 
reason, it made me think of Carly 
Simon's ironic song about our 
times: "Make love in the micro- 
wave/Think of all the time you 

In the past few years, with Iwby 
boomers in the White House, I 
have seen another, larger image 
of this rush hour. Since taking 
office, the Clintons have lost his 
mother and her father. In the pace 
of their lives, were they allowed 
enough time for reflection, for the 
slow absorption of loss and its 

This summer when Al (xore's 
mother was first hospitalized 
with a stroke and surgery, he 
canceled his schedule. But then he 
did what was required. He took 
his worry back to work. Gotta go. 

There is a family and medical 

leave policy for some of us, some 
of the time. There are small 
allowances for childbirth and 
sickness-unto-death. But the traf- 
fic jam of our lives rarely makes 
way for everyday family problems. 
Nor are we, surely, expected to 
brake for something as routine as 
saying goodbye to pieces of a 
family home. 

Tonight, however, attention 
will be paid. There are boxes to 
pack but also a life in change. 
There are times when the more 
human speed limit must be ob- 
served. When talk is slow. 

I go home late and tired. But 
I take with me a soup pot, a dozen 
stories, and a silver basket that 
was — I now know — given to 
my grandparents for their wed- 
ding. Someday, I will tell that to 
the next, middle-aged generation. 
Before they gotta go.

Newspaper giants surrender ethics to bomber 


Journalistic integrity was dealt 
a serious blow last week as The 
Washington Post and The New 
York Times agreed to print the 
Unabomber's manifesto. Not only 
were long standing principles 
destroyed, but several dangerous 
precedents were set. 

The Unabomber has l)een ac- 
tively violent for nearly two 
decades, killing three and injuring 
23 others. He is an anarchist who 
decries industry and advocates a 
return to "wild nature." His 
35,000-word diatribe, which was 
printed as an eight-page supple- 
ment to the Washington Post, is 
ridiculous to the core. But even 
if the entire manifesto was mer- 
itorious, it still would be wrong 
to capitulate to a terrorist's re- 
quests. The Washington Post has 
chose, for whatever reason, not to 
print the writings of some of the 
greatest minds in America. The 
ability to make a bomb should not 
become the criteria. 

The Washington Post and The 
New York Times agreed to share 
the costs of the extra printing, so 
they should share the blame as 

The newspapers cited "public 
safety reasons" for the publica- 
tion. Ironically, the papers have 
potentially exposed the populace 
to more violence by creating a 

disturbing precedent that acts as 
an invitation to other deranged 
minds. The publishers point to the 
unique aspects of this case, but 
the end result will be an increased 
acceptance erf bargaining with 
terrorists. Lx)cal media, whether 
it be the newspapers or television, 
have a precedent with which to 
justify cutting deals with local 

The unsettling aspects do not 
end there, though. By consulting 
government agencies and abiding 
by their recommendation, the 
papers have blurred the line 


The Unabomber has also said 
that he wants three 'more shorter 
manuscripts published over the 
next three years. What happens 
if these are not published? 

The Washington Post would 
have done t)etter to read its own 
1987 editorial that assailed any 
type of bargaining with terrorists: 
"The supply of hostages is endless 
in a world where people travel 


between government and press. In 
an attempt to justify their own 
actions, the papers have only 
served to embroil Attorney 
General Janet Reno in yet another 

The government's policy has 
been to avoid dealing with terror- 
ists. In fact, the State Depart- 
ment's annual report on terror- 
ism, which was just issued in 
April, states that the first rule in 
U.S. counter-terrorism policy is 
"Do not make deals with terrorists 

widely, and to give in merely 
makes certain types of crime 
or submit to blackmail. We have 
found over the years that this 
policy works." 

In fact, the papers have not 
solved anything by catering to the 
Unatwmber. There exists no con- 
tractual agreement that will bind 
the Unatx)mber. He is a serial 
killer and self-avowed revolution- 
ary. Trusting him is simply naive. 
He detests the very structures of 
civilty that the papers are expect- 

Just say no to Colin Powell 


WASHINGTON - The idea 
that Colin Powell is a president 
in need only of an inauguration 
is a product of the media's bore- 
dom and of Powell's deft applica- 
tion to the media of Bismarck's 
dictum that you can do anything 
with children if you will play with 
them. In their current swooning 
many journalists are asking, with 
yearning, whether Powell is 
"another Eisenhower." This is a 
strange yearning from people 
who, until they became smitten 
by the Powell-Eisenhouwer anal- 
ogy, probably thought that one 
Eisenhower was more than 

So far, Powell is less an Eisen- 
hower than a Chauncey Gardiner. 
Gardiner is the protagonist of 
Jerzy Kosinski's novel "Being 
There," and the movie based on 
it. Chance, a gardener with no last 
name, is struck by a limousine. 
Asked who he is, he says, "I am 
Chance, the gardener," and in the 
first of many misunderstandings 
is wafted into high places — into 
the president's presence, onto 
television talk shows — as Chaun- 
cey Gardiner, savant. 

When asked about anything — 
the economy, for example — he 
talks about gardening: "Every 
thing has its season" or "As long 
as the roots are not severed, all 
is well and all will be well." A 
nation eager to follow a leader who 
is not too demanding and to 
subscribe to a faith that is not too 
rigorous, assumes that his homey 
maxims are actually subtle anal 
ogies and parables. The president 
quotes him. Television lionizes 
him. Eventually the president's 
men conclude that he is indeed a 
blank slate — a personable, tel 
genie blank slate — and hence vice 
presidential material. 

One recent Chauncey Gardiner 
in our national circus was David 
Souter as nominee to the Supreme 
Court. George Bush wanted to 
avoid another brawl of the sort 

that attended the nomination of 
Robert Bork. Hence Souter. He 
had a slight record and in his 
confirmation hearing he said 
little, which suited the shell- 
shocked Senate Judiciary Com- 
mittee just fine. To calm conser- 
vatives' worries. Bush operatives 
whispered, "He's really sound — 
trust us." Oh, well. 

The twin premises of Powel- 
Imania are that he is a leader and 
the country is not particular about 
where it is led. Perhaps both are 

true. However, regarding leader 
ship, consider two Powell state 
ments that fuel speculation that 
he is considering running for 
president as an independent. This 
is from his book: "Neither of the 
two major parties. . . fits me com- 
fortably in its present state." This 
is from his interview with Barbara 
Walters: "I have not been able to 
find a perfect fit in either of the 
two existing parties." 

Well, of course. Neither party 
has evolved as it has over the 
years in the hope of pleasing 
Powell by fitting him perfectly. 
Each exists to rally a governing 
coalition for a continental nation. 
Wha^ .npfTyqee ^las ^v^r /el| en 

tirely comfortable with his party? 
But real leaders use their discom- 
fort, if they and it are serious, 
creatively, to make their parties 
fit them. 

In 18% a young two-term De- 
mocratic congresman from Ne- 
braska was so uncomfortable 
with his party's commitment to 
laissez faire and minimal govern- 
ment that he ignited its national 
convention with his rhetoric and 
won the first of three presidential 
nominations. William Jennings 
Bryan lost all three elections but 
helped transform his party into 
the engine that built the modern 
regulatory state. 

At the 1960 Republican conven 
tion, Arizona's junior senator was 
uncomfortable with the ideologi- 
cal flaccidity of the Eisenhower 
years and of Eisenhower's run 
ning mate, who was the conven 
tion's nominee. So Barry Gold- 
water went to the podium and 
thundered, "Let's grow up, con- 
servatives! If we want to take this 
party back, and I think we can 
some day, let's go to work." They 
did, and in 1964 they nominated 
him. He carried only six states but 
sired the ideological party now 
driving the nation's political 

Both Bryan and Goldwater 
were, in the short term, losers. 
They also were leaders. Both were 
at home in politics, an arena of 
mass jjersuasion. The military, 
Powell's home all of his adult life, 
is of structure, and political 
persuasion takes place in small 
settings. Is Powell ready to play 
in a new arena? 

Eisenhower, a gifted politician 
after a life in the military, ran as 
a Republican in part because he 
strongly disapproved of the par- 
ty's vestigial isolationism, which 
he associated with the man who 
otherwise would have been nom 
inated, Robert Taft. If Powell 
refuses to run as a Republican 
because the party is not a "perfect 
fit," he may not be a Chauncey 
Gardiner but he certainly is no 
Eisenhower ,^ 

ing to compel him to uphold his 
end of the bargain. 

And what exactly is his end of 
the deal? The Federal Bureau of 
Investigation (FBI) admits that he 
never made promises to stop 
bombing, only to stop directly 
bombing people. 

"He has said he retains the right 
to make bombs to do sabotage,- to 
do property damage, " admitted 
Jim Freeman, head of the FBI task 
force investigating the Un 
alx)mber. "There is no guarantee 
that those bombs will not injure 
unpunishable and certain laws — 
those against terrorist violence — 

The hypocritical nature of The 

Washington Post's action is not 
what is surprising. Rather, what 
is annoying is that the editorial 
board once had it right and failed 
to realize it. 

7 he Washington Post and The 
New York Times have crossed the 
lines of journalistic integrity. 
They have begun to deal in mat 
ters in which they simply have no 
responsibility. And America is 
worse off because of it. 

The publication of the mani 
festo should not be heralded as a 
great humanitarian effort by The 
Washington Post and The New 
York Times. It represents a retreat 
and signifies a loss of ground in 
the battle against terrorism. 

Welfare cuts 
affect everyone 


Imagine this: 

You are a 19- year old mother of 
two living in a one room apart 
ment in a large city. You have not 
heard from your parents since you 
were 15, and the children's father 
left the family over two years ago. 
You have had a job off and on for 
the past year and a half, but 
between your lack of education, 
training and work exp)erience, 
plus the daily need of attention 
from the youngsters, you are 
unable to earn enough money to 
support your family. If it wasn't 
for the $200 and food stamps you 
receive each week from the state, 
you wouldn't know how you 
would put food on the table. 

Suddenly things have changed. 
Your state government is now 
denying monetary benefits to 
teenage mothers who had their 
children out of wedlock, leaving 
you without a chance at a job, 
without a place to live, without 
anything to eat and, most impor 
tantly, without a way to support 
your children. Nothing is left for 
you except the street. 

This situation may soon become 
a reality for nearly 10 million 
children and their families after 
Senate Republicans and Demo- 
crats voted overwhelmingly last 
Tuesday to force welfare recip- 
ients — 90 percent of whom are 
single mothers — off welfare 
within two years even if they can't 
find jobs. The Senate bill would 
also allow each state to decide if 
teenage mothers who had children 
out of wedlock will he able to 
receive benefits as well. It is the 
hope of Congress that a version 
of this bill will force more people 
to earn money instead of receiving 

Most reasonable Americans 
agree with Congress' proposition. 
People who are able to work 
should work. That is why the 
lawmakers have begun to reform 
the system by designing razor 
sharp rules that would push 
individuals off welfare into the 
working force, saving the national 
government between $70and $100 
billion over the next seven years. 
These numbers sound great to 
those of us with a roof over our 
heads and food on our tables. 
However, what the men and 
women in Washington do not 
realize is that real people are not 
numbers, especially when the 
majority of the people are innocent 
children who cannot help them 
selves no matter how tough \hv 

rules get. When parents are even- 
tually left without needed benef 
its, children undoubtedly would 
become the likeliest victims of the 
state-run system destined to be- 
come law. 

But wait, there appears to Ix' 
a plan. In the existing Senate bill, 
states would theoretically be 
responsible to find jobs and child 
care for half the families they 
wean off of the system by the turn 
of the century. However, this task 
sounds 'iimpler in theory than it 
is in practice. 

When parents are 
e¥entually left without 
benefits, children 
undoubtedly would 
become the likeliest 
victims of the state-run 
system . . . 

Half of the people currently on 
welfare have no education or 
skilled training to get hired — 
probably the reason most of them 
are poor. If it was not for the 
support of government they and 
their children would be in the 
streets. At least that is what 
history tells us. 

Two previous federally imposed 
work requirements have failed 
and the states have shown that 
past attempts to reduce welfare 
costs by forcing recipients to work 
has not yielded reliable evidence 
of success. 

Education and training pro 
grams would definitely help people 
on the system find jobs, but with 
the tenor of Congress echoing the 
sounds of diminished spending, it 
is unlikely that a costly education 
and training plan would be 

So, when the new system is 
implemented and parents, esjje- 
cially single mothers, can not find 
a job, the kids will ultimately pay 
the price. 

It will be only a couple of years 
from now, when pictures of des- 
perate children in the streets are 
flashed in front of America's eyes, 
that Congress members now pat 
ting each other on the back will 
come to realize that in cutting 
dollars they have crippled the 
lives of many inn<o<;ent yicf ipiSt,^_^J

Morality comes between the public and its Calvins 


Associati Editor 

There is no fashion house that. 
over the years, proved \W ada^e, 
"Sex sells," to Ix- true Ik'tter than 
Calvin Klein. However, Klein's 
$300 million corporation may 
have also proved too much of a 
good thing to be bad. 

With Klein's most recent ad 
campaign, he has not only outdone 
himself, he may have done himself 
in. His use of underage mcxlels in 
very compromising situations 
have sent the media and the public 
into a frenzy. Perfect timing for 
those on the campaign trail. 

Klein's questionable judgement 
has provided yet more useless hot 
air for the platforms of those 
throughout the country who are 
seeking election to public office. 
Clinton has spoken out against 
Klein's marketing strategy, hold- 
ing It up as an example of every 
thing ammoral. untolerable and 
on American. 

Currently, the U.S. Justice 
Department is investigating 
whether the Calvin Klein Co. has 
violated any federal child exploi- 
tation laws. Such laws are usually 
used to prosecute pornographers 
who use minors in sexual situa 
tions for the sexual gratification 
of viewers of photographs, videos 
or movies. 

I)(x's the sudden rush of public 
officials to do what is moral, in 
an area usually of no relative 
concern for them, seem to occur 
too conveniently during campaign 

Yes. Klein's ad campaign did go 

beyond the fine line, however, the 
line IS a difficult one to define 
when one takes a glance at every- 
thing else our culture accepts. 
Keeping within the fashion indus 
try, take a strond look at the ad 
campaigns of other fashion 
houses, or even the models that 
strut their designs on catwalks all 

over the world. 

Most are familiar with the 
"waif-look," young men and 
women who may be over the age 
of IH yet have the vacant doe-eyed 
stare of 12-year-olds that their 
gaunt, virtually formless, Ixxlies 
resemble. Before various fashion 
houses debuted the "school girl" 

l(K)k, plaid skirts and knee hi 
S(xks were reserved lor actual 
schoolgirls. However, with an 
extra inch or two taken up on the 
hem and a pair of platform shoes 
thrown with the knee hi stx:ks, 
even the school girl became sexy. 
Over the years, children have 
been slowly sexualized by the 

tashioii industry. Alter all, re 
member it was a 15-year-old 
Brooke Shields who prcxlaimed to 
the world, "Nothing comes be 
tween me and my Calvins." Fa 
shion houses can only sell what 
the public buys into. Maybe the 
public bought just a little too 
much and sold themselves out. 

Jiggling the handle of life: umbrellas 


Staff Columnist 

The rainy season is upon us. 
Well, not really, but it has been 
raining quite a bit lately. These 
rainy days have forced me to write 
about something 1 have firmly 
believed in for a couple of years 

I lived on South Campus sopho- 
more year. One rainy day as I was 
walking up the trail with the un- 
printable politically incorrect 
name, a five-foot girl, who prob- 
ably didn't weigh 100 lbs. soaking 
wet, nearly beheaded me. Her 
weapon was not an axe but a golf 
umbrella big enough to keep a 
family of six dry. So I asked 
myself, "do we really need to put 
up with such annoyances as 
umbrellas on campus?" 


Let me explain. Wet is good, 
maybe not in a wool sweater, but 
naked we love it. Everybody 
bathes. Bathing is part of society. 
If you don't bathe, you smell and 
are perceived as a dirty person. 
Now if you can get away without 

bathing, well, that's a different 
story. My point is that everybody 
gets wet voluntarily, so what's the 
big deal if you get a little wet any 

other time. 

One could say, "My hair might 
get wet and frizzy." Big deal, wear 
a hat or a hood. Jackets are also 

a very popular way to keep dry. 
Jackets, windbreakers and even 
yellow raincoats are very practi 
cal, that is if you don't mind 
looking like the Morton Salt girl. 

What if 1 don't have a hat or 
a hood? Well, in this case you have 
two options: 1 ) Buy a hot or a hood 
or 2) suck it up, get wet, and go 
on with your life. 

You may ask, what's so bad 
about using an umbrella? Most 
importantly, you are putting your 
fellow students in grave danger, 
especially ones taller than you. I 
am rather tall myself and I have 
seen the face of death many times 
as those little pointy things on 
umbrellas come towards me. Of 
course we all know the famous 
line about how it is all fun and 
games until someone loses a head. 
(I realize that the line is about 
losing an eye, but we are talking 
about decapitation.) 

Small umbrellas are not so bad. 
They take up much less space and 
I certainly wouldn't object to the 
use of them when it is raining very 
hard. But golf umbrellas are 
meant for a specific activity, and 

it does not take a genius to figure 
out what that activity is. 

I have not seen as many um 
brellas over the past few days as 
I thought I might in this time of 
rainy splendor. I have actually 
seen many a happy face of frol 
icking people enjoying the rain. 
Why not enjoy life and let yourself 
get a little wet? Besides, if you 
have a lot of books, an umbrella 
is just one more thing you have 
to schlep around all dav 

If you are out in the rain let the 
words of this famous proverb 
guide you: "When it rains, ever 
ythinggets wet." 

This is my message to you, the 
students: If you use an umbrella, 
stop. If you do not use an umbrella , 
do not start. No matter what your 
friends^ay, you do not have to be 
dry to be cool.

Talk Sh ws 

Whafs the attraction? 


Staff Reporter 

"You could say it is junk food 
for your mind, but doesn't eve- 
ryone want a Twinkie now and 
then?" asked talk show host 
Richard Bey, as he conducted a 
mock version of his television 
program before an audience of 
Villanova students. 

The Campus Activities Team 
(CAT) sponsored Bey's Sept. 20 
visit to Connelly Center's Villan- 
ova Room. The event attracted a 
packed crowd and a panel of 
Villanova students participating 
in a non-televised, behind-the- 
scenes look at the Richard Bey 
Show. The question, "Are all men 
dogs?" formed the topic of 

Known for hosting programs 
dealing with women "proud of 
protruding posteriors" and the 
"Miss Big Butt" contest, Bey 
enjoyed a standing ovation in 
welcome of his entrance. An 

accompanying promotional video 
advertised, "watch Bey for intel 
lectual stimulation," and "watch 
Bey for the truth," but why are 
so many attracted to his and other 
talk shows? 

Bey said people want "to be 
entertained." Fellow talk show 
hosts Oprah Winfrey and Phil 
Donahue might seek to "elevate 
consciousness," but he asserted 
that it is unfair to expect such an 
aspiration of all of daytime tele- 
vision. "Don't confuse television 
with a book," he advised; "it's not 
the fall of Rome" if programs such 
as his aim only to entertain. He 
added that Donahue has been 
cancelled and that Winfrey may 
be quitting soon, so that perhaps 
audiences have turned away from 
that type of show anyway. >/> 

Mock show panelist Rashida 
Hamlin, a junior arts major, 
auditioned the night before the 
show by giving her views on the 
scheduled topic. "I thought it 
would be a fun experience," she 
explained. "I always wanted to be 
on his show;" but, she added, "I 
wouldn't want to do it on national 
television because it would be too 

Hamlin said she watches the 
Bey show all the time. "It's all for 
entertainment, so you don't have 
to look at it in a serious way." 
She feels, "It's a matter of your 
taste," so that if you don't like 
that type of program "you don't 
have to watch it." 

Sophomore Kristta Cebrik went 
to see the mock program after 
watching the Bey show this 
summer. Fellow sophomore Col- 
leen Denton went as well, explain- 
ing, "although untasteful and sick 
as he is, I think he's really funny." 

Neither found Bey offensive, 
but Cebrik suggested that he 
"initiates the confrontation be- 
tween guests and the audience 
and between the guests them- 
selves." She felt perhaps the 
questions he asks create agitation. 
Denton said, "the whole environ- 
ment he sets is totally different" 
from what one might have ex- 
pected from Villanova students. 
Both thought Bey's style promoted 
conflict, but Cebrik also felt that 
often his guests humiliate 

Professor Donna Shai of the 
sociology department has been 
researching the phenomenon of 
talk show popularity. "I'm still 
trying to work through it," she 
explained, but "my feeling is that 
these are issues that people are 
stniggling with," so that discus 
sion on talk shows attracts peo- 
ple's attention. She suggested the 
"topics are of concern to ordinary 

"It seems to me that a lot of the 
issues that are brought up are 
issues in ordinary people's lives, 
and it's an opportunity to identify 
with the person on the stage or 
in the audience." 

Shai has noted more of a pro 
liferation of talk shows in recent 
years, as well As an evolution in 
program style, "as the kinds of 
behavior they talked about became 
stranger and audiences began to 
respond in different sorts of 
ways." She referred to a recent 
tendency to reveal secrets to 
guests on a show in order to film 
their response. However, such 
tactics have proven dangerous in 
light of the March 1995 homicide 
by a guest of the Jenny Jones 
program of a man who revealed 
a secret about him during a taping 
gL the show. Shai suggested this 

represents an instance of "what "I couldn't watch his program the Susan Bootay, a junior Psy 

happens when things go too far." whole way through." She added chology major, was also critical. 

Some Villanova students are about talk shows in general, asserting, "Talk shows seem to be 

critical of certain aspects of talk "They don't really want the real runningoutof thingstocover.and 

shows. "I think [Bey] is obnox- story, they just want it to look they never really get to intellectual

What's In Your Head? 

We need more natural hi's 


Features Editor 

Imagine this: 

It IS mid-day and you are walk 
ing all alone on one of our campus' 
many pathways. In the distance, 
a complete stranger is approach 
ing from the opposite direction. 
Neither of you are equipped with 
any materials with which you 
could (x:cupy yourself, for exam- 
ple, a newspaper, junk mail, head 
phones, etc. As you draw nearer, 
it looks as if you are going to either 
do an about face and high-tail it 
back to wherever you were coming 
from or, even worse, attempt some 
form of basic communication with 
the unknown party. 

What you have just experienced 
was, obviously, a dramatization. 
But the scenario is not too far 
fetched at all. Each and every day 
we pass ixxjple on campus with 
whom we do not know how to 
interact. Many are absolute 
strangers. And some are among 
that repertoire of individuals in 
our lives whom we have met but 

once and just cannot remember 
t heir name. Whatever the case, we 
are faced with the dilemma of 
whether or not to say "hello," and 
furthermore, how we should go 
about doing it. 

I have both witnessed and 
experienced this awkward situa- 
tion countless times, and it has 
always seemed pretty humorous. 
Earlier this week, I was truckin' 
along down the trail to South 
Campus and from the very top of 
the path 1 could see someone 
approaching from the bottom. 
After realizing I did not know this 
person, 1 had a solid minute to 
think about how I would greet 
them. That can be such a strange 
minute because, first of all, you 
know that person may be looking 
at you, yet you very well can't 
maintain eye contact throughout 
the entire journey, so you have 
absolutely no idea where to look. 
Therefore, people tend to stare at 
the floor. Or. in my case, I sud- 
denly developed an incredulous 
interest in a squirrel making its 
way down a tree in the near 
distance, and focused my full 
attention on it, all the while 
thinking to myself, "Why am I 
staring at this squirrel?" 

Still aware of the looming con 
frontation, I quickly meditated on 
what to do. I mean, the easiest 
option would be to continue my 
fascinating wildlife observation 
and ignore the passerby com 
pletely. And many people do 
ch(K)se to do this all of the time. 

However, after ret:alling what 1 
had seen on a clip from the show 
"60 Minutes" in my sociology 
class the other day, I have come 
to understand the potential sev 
erity of such an act. 

You see. the show's segment 
featured life in the country of 
Finland. Apparently in this Euro- 
pean country citizens do not 
acknowledge nor do they make eye 
contact with one another in pass- 
ing. As a result, everyone who was 
featured on the program appeared 
extremely depressed. The show 
went on to correlate the country's 
low birth rate and high suicide 
rate to this strange phenomenon. 
So at the very least, I make sure 
to greet those I meet in a small 
effort to save our country's well 

But back to me and the squirrel. 
Yes, I managed to tear my atten- 
tion away from it for a brief 
moment and ended up blurting 
out a ridiculously loud, "Hi!" 
accompanied by a spastic wave of 
the hand. The victim of my ad- 
dress, apparently taken back by 
the intensity of my greeting, 
managed a simple smile as he 
quickly increased his rate of travel 
to a sprint. When I turned around, 
he was nowhere to be found. 

I attribute my freakish display 
of behavior to the fact that I 
thought about the confrontation 
way too much. But after a while, 
greeting random strangers can 
become quite a natural thing to 
do. The initial scariness is due to

When the names Luther Van

the fact that you never know how 
a stranger may react to you; they 
may do nothing at all. or they may 
be hostile. Yet that may only be 
because they have never had an 
un unfamiliar face say "hello" to 
them before. 

If you are guilty of walking 
through campus with your head 
down in order to avoid potential 

confrontations, I urge you to stop. 
Pick your head up and say hello 
to someone you ordinarily would 
not. It is refreshing. And the 
beautiful thing is that sometimes, 
without knowing it, you may give 
someone a "hi" when they may 
need it the most. Even a simple 
smile could make someone's day, 
and it is so easy to do.

Local act Wanderiust speaks out 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

On Oct. 7, Homecoming week- 
end, Wanderlust, a 
Philadelphia based band, will 
make one of their first college 
performances on Villanova's cam- 
pus. Wanderlust has had marked 
success since their signing to RCA 
in Dec. 1994. Since then, they 
have produced their debut album 
Prize and have begun touring. An 
array of spectacular concert and 
CD reviews has proven them to 
be an up and coming act that is 
far from disappearing. 

All four members are from the 
area. Scot Sax, lead vocalist and 
guitarist, is from Plymouth Meet- 
ing. Mark Levin, bassist, is from 
Newtown Square. Jim Cava- 
naugh, drummer, is from Norris- 
town and Rob Bonfiglio, vocalist 
and lead guitarist, is from 

Wanderlust has been together 
only two years. In that time they 
have devoted themselves one 
hundred percent to their music. 
They began playing area clubs 
such as Khyber and Dobbs, and 
have already been signed to a 7- 

record deal with RCA. 

Wanderlust's debut album. 
Prize, is a compilation of 1 1 tracks 
of diverse songs. The third track 
on Prize, "I walked," is the band's 
first released single and has 
received considerable air play. 

"Sundial," the fifth track on the 
album, is certainly an attention 
grabber. It ends abruptly at what 
appears to be the middle of a 
chord, and as quickly as it ends 
"coffee in the kitchen" begins. 
"Coffee in the kitchen" differs 
greatly from "sundial" in that it 
has more energy and speed to it. 
The extreme differences between 
these two songs characterize the 
entire album. 

The ninth track on the album 
shows the band's fun spirit 
through words and instrumentals. 
With the use of a "Gilligan's 
Island" theme and a certain 
twang of the guitar. Wanderlust 
leaves the listener roaring with 

Prize contains a variety of 
refreshing songs that are clean, 
crisp and unlike the majority of 
music today. The band has more 
of a 70s pop/rock sound that 
allows their musical rniitt>s to 

shine through. The tunes on the 
CD are upbeat and positive. Wan- 
derlust can definitely be set in a 
category of their own, with mean 
ingful lyrics and catchy music. 

When asked who their musical 
influences were, Scot Sax re- 
sponded, "A combination of Queen 
and Box Car Willy. We like Ween 
and just different songs by differ- 
ent bands, not any bands in 
particular. And you know the 
Beatles are pretty good. They 
have one, two, three thousand 
killer songs." 

apHPi pouppv* 

Since Wanderlust has been 
signed, they have played with 
Collective Soul and George Tho- 
rogood. "We did two weeks with 
Collective Soul this summer and 
we're going to do another month 
seems to appreciate us even 
though we don't sound exactly 
like them," Mark Levin added. 

RCA seems to have them work-

Staff Reporter 

With her new book, a collec- 
tion of four interconnected 
novellas, Ursula K. LeGuin offers 
another solid work of science 
fiction that transcends the often 
narrow boundaries of that genre. 
Although Four Ways to Forgiveness 
is set upon two distant planets 
(very sci-fi), LeGuin creates a 
reality that relates, and perhaps 
comments, on our contemporary 

LeGuin constructs a complex 
universe in which several cul- 
tures, or races, of beings compete 
against one another. Each of these 
cultures that LeGuin creates seem 
to have their own unique faults. 
The people of Werel have a social 
system that subjugates women 
into domestic, servile roles. Werel 
society also makes use of a caste 
system that views the lower class 
as sub-human and as the posses- 
sions of the upper-class. 

But even though the culture of 
Werel can be viewed as extremely 
backwards by our contemporary 
standards, their main opponents, 
the Ekumen, are not much better. 
The Ekumen have colonized 
Werel, and are practicing cultural 
hegemony upon the Werelians by 
replacing Werel 's traditions with 
Ekumenian ones. According to the 
Ekumen, this is done in the best 
interests of the people of Werel, 
for they are supposedly "cultu- 
rally inferior." 

These cultural conflicts result 
in rigid socio-political structures 
that promote social divisions and 
regulate Werelians and Ekumen 
lans into certain molds of behav- 
ior. However, I^eGuin develops 
characters that somehow, in spite 
of the rigidity of their society, rise 
above the situations in which they 
find themselves. These charac- 
ters, such as the Werelian soldier 
Teyeo and the Ekumanian emis 
sary Solly, overcome social rigid- 
ity and divisions by "hold(ing| fast 
to the one noble thing," namely 

The cultures LeGuin creates in 
these stories have a strain of 
Oriental and Indian thought op- 
erating just below their surfaces 
that makes them rich and inter- 
esting. For example, in the story 
titled "Betrayals." the two main 
rhgract^rs, Yoss a n d^ Abbef k^m.. 

move to the country, like Indian 
ascetics to become spiritual her- 
mits. Also, both of these charac 
ters are studying the Arkamye. a 
fictional scripture that seems to 
be partially modeled after the 
Hindu Bhagavad Gita (it has a 
line, "Brother, I am thou" that is 
similar to the Gita's "Thou are 
That"). Furthermore, both char 
acters are attempting in a Bud- 
dhist vein to quell their desires. 

LeGuin is also entertaining in 
that it is refreshing to see an 
author over the age of 40 casually 
use the word "f -" as the verb it 
has become, as she does in a 
sentence in the second story of the 
volume. ("She really didn't want 
to f - up their ceremony.") 

LeGuin currently lives in Port- 
land, OR. She is best known for 
The Dispossessed and The Left 
Hand of Darkness, which were 
both winners of the Hugo and 
Nebula awards for being the best 
science-fiction novels published in 
their respective years. Since the 
mid-'70s she has been a much 
studied feminist icon, credited 
with having helped dissolve some 
of the male stereotypes about 
women. In a recent interview in 
the Washington Post's Book Re- 
view, Leguin still said that things 
have not changed fast enough for 
her liking. LeGuin is still busy 
writing more sci-fi for future 
publication, so KYEO for her 

signing. They produced Prize, and 
are presently touring. They just 
recently were part of a production 
of a tribute album to Willie Nelson. 
"It's got country singers singing 
with rock bands, [i.e.], Johnny 
Cash singing with Sound Garden 
doing a Willie Nelson song. We 
were asked to do one of the tracks 
and we went in the studio this 
past Sunday [Sept. 17) and re 
corded with this guy called The 
Grand Puba. . . We did a song with 
them starting Nov. 4. Those guys 
are sort of showing us the ropes 
as far as playing every night of 
the week in front of large audien- 
ces. Instead of slowly building, we 
are sort of jumping right into the 

fire and learning how the whole 
thing works," Sax said. 

"It is good booking with them 
because the bands are similar 
enough yet dissimilar enough 
that it works well. Their audience 
called "Sad Songs and Waltz's 
Aren't Selling this Year." He sang 
it and we played it," Sax and 
Levin told me. 

Wanderlust will be playing at 
Villanova on homecoming week 
end, Oct. 7. There is good reason 
not to miss this up-and-coming 
act, as Mark Levin explained, "We 
rock out when we play live, there 
really is a lot of energy in the 
shows. People tend to comment 
about it."

"Unstrung Heroes" 


Staff Reporter 

It was a tough decision: On a 
depressingly rainy Friday 
night, which movie would better 
suit the mood of my overly 
stressed, tired roommate and me: 
the much-anticipated, high 
intensity crime drama, "Usual 
Suspects," or the unique, bitter 
sweet feature film, "Unstrung 
Heroes?" After much deliberation, 
which included impromptu inter 
views Avith almost every passer 
by outside the Bryn Mawr movie 
theater, we decided on "Unstrung 
Heroes," and as Robert Frost once 
said, "that made all the 
difference " 

"Unstrung Heroes " marks the 
directorial debut of actress Diane 
Keaton. It stars John Turturro as 
an unconventional inventor and 
patriarch of a Jewish family living 
in California in the 1960s. The 
plot surrounds a family crisis, in 
which the impressionable young 
son, Steven Lindz, learns of his 
mother's (played by Andie MacDo 
well) terminal illness, and copes 
with it through the companion 
ship of his two accentric uncles, 
played by Maury Chaykin and 
"Seinfeld's" Michael Richards. 

Unintentionally shunned by his 
father and facing a somber atmos- 
phere at home, Steven convinces 
his parents to let him stay with 
his Uncle Arthur and Uncle 
Danny throughout the duration of 
his mother's illness. Uncle Arthur 
is- a «entimental, sensitive 0flck- 

rat obsessed with family memo- 
rabilia, while Uncle Danny is 
constantly paranoid with the idea 
that he is being watched by 
Fascist antiSemitics. The two 
brothers live together in a claus- 
trophobic mess of an apartment 
and share amusing antics with 
their nephew. By the end of the 
movie, Steven, who was once 
accustomed of his uncles' mis- 
guided sense of reality, convinces 
everyone in his family to appre- 
ciate it for its odd sincerity. 

In an age of movies that are not 
considered blockbuster hits unless 
they contain an excess of a) sex, 
b) violence, c) profanity, or d) all 
of the above, "IJnstrung Heroes," 
proves to be a refreshingly enter 
taining alternative. For example, 
the acting is so realistic that the 
audience actually feels trans- 
formed into another time and 
place. Half the people in the 
theater were still in their seats, 
staring up at the screen five 
minutes after the movie had 
ended. Although this film is 
deeply emotional at times, humor 
is a significant feature, which 
runs throughout the entire story- 
line. "Unstrung Heroes," is highly 
recommended for any fellow Vil- 
lanova student looking to escape 
the pressures of a chaotic daily 
regimen. It takes a poignant story 
such as this to make one realize 
that every person one meets will 
have an influence, whether direct 
or indirect, on the rest of his or 
her life. > - - >

Bizarre butchery slashes through 'Seven' 


Entertainment Editor 

I never thought I would see the 
day when teenage girls were 
afraid to look at Brad Pitt. When 
I entered the theater and found 
myself surrounded by anxiously 
giggling adolescents, I imme 
diately began to question what 1 
had gotten myself into. Was 1 
about to witness "The Sexiest 
Man in America" tossing his hair 
and looking coy for the next two 
hours? My fears were soon abated 
and those giggles soon replaced by 
awed silence and covered eyes in 
response to what was flickering 
on the screen. This was no glossy 
star vehicle, and this was cer- 
tainly nothing to giggle about. 

"Seven," directed by David 
Fincher ("Alien 3") is a grisly 
crime story of horrific proportions 
that does not shy away from the 
most gruesome displays of psy- 
chotic behavior seen on screen 
since "Silence of the Lambs." The 
film stars Brad Pitt as David 
Mills, a young, eager detective 
just off the bus from Pleasantville, 
U.S.A., with his sweet and lovely- 

wife Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow) by 
his side. He has come to this 
murky Gotham-esque metropolis 
to replace Lt. William Somerset 
(Morgan Freeman), a world-weary

veteran cop whose long antici- 
pated retirement is only a week 
away. The two first meet at the 
scene of a routine homicide and 
immediately get under each oth- 
er's skin. Suspicious of each 
others metheda wid tAlent^; they 

avoid working together until a 
series of shoe-king murders causes 
them to unite their knowledge. 

The murders in question in 
volve the seven deadly sins of 
Ciluttony, Greed, Sloth, Envy, 
Pride, Wrath and Lust. After more 
than a year of meticulous plan- 
ning, the killer "John Doe" has 
carefully selected his victims 
based on their deadly sin of choice 
in an attempt to cleanse this 
modern world of its filth. For 
gluttony. Doe seeks out an enor- 
mously obese man whom he ties 
to a chair and force feeds at gun 
point until he literally bursts. As 
a warning: No details have been 
spared by the special effects and 
make up teams. The other 
murders follow in a similar string 
of forced acts of contrition. 

"Seven" relies a great deal on 
cinematography to set moods and 
give a sense of the moral and 
spiritual decay in the film. Darius 
Khondji does some amazing and 
disturbing things with the camera 
to take his work beyond the 
cutting edge. This is not only a 
plus for film-goers, but a plus for 
the film itself, as it helps you to

FLNL turns heads 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

In a music world that is more 
often than not dictated by 
current trends and passing fads. 
For Love Not Lisa (FLNL) comes 
as quite a pleasant surprise. A 
recent explosion in the hardcore 
scene, FLNL is making heads 
turn. Their new album Informa- 
tion Superdriveway is a refreshing 
taste of musical variety that is 
often left unexplored. 

Founded by vocalist Mike Lewis 
and guitarist Miles while they 
were still in their teen years, 
FLNL has come a long way from 
their start in Oklahoma City. 
Lewis and Miles teamed up with 
bassist Clint McBay and drummer 
Aaron Preston, before deciding to 
move west in the search for "the 
big time." 

Once settled in Hermosa Beach, 
Ca., they released a self-titled EP 
and a 7* single which immediately 
got high levels of attention. The 

follow up to these came in 1993 
when FLNL released their first 
major label debut. Merge. This 
was quickly boosted due to the 
single "SHp Slide Meeting" which 
was featured on the soundtrack 
of the popular movie, "The Crow." 

This placed them on the same 
ground as musical legends the 
Cure and connoisseurs of pop 
culture bands such as Stone 
Temple Pilots and Nine Inch 
Nails. The soundtrack went plat 
num, exposing For Love Not Lisa 
to^ whole new group of listeners. 
Increasing their audience, they 

toured with bands like Fugazi, 
Drown, Clutch, Rage Against The 
Machine and Green Day 

Information Superdriveway, 
which came out early this year, 
is energy raised to a new level. 
"Merge was a bit scattered emo- 
tionally," Lewis says. "These 
songs are more focused than 
before, and we had time to write 
and play together, so it's just 
tighter all around." From the 
album opener and the first single. 
"Had a Lover," to the grinding 
sweetness of "Snowball Fight" 
FLNL's talent is truly apparent. 

A big part of For Love Not Lisa's 
appeal is the urgency and reality 
of their lyrics. "Most of what I 
write about is stuff that has 
touched me or people I know. I'm 
moved by life, by religion, by love, 
by anger — I try to keep my 
writing honest," said Lewis. Plain 
and simple. For Love Not Lisa 
makes music that they feel from 
the inside. 

FLNL will leave you with just 
one question. . . Who is Lisa?!

Hip Hop Theatre 


Staff Reporter 

Without any doubt one of 
the greatest rewards of 
being a true hip-hop head is the 
action of "getting open." While 
you may not be familiar with 
this terminology I am abso- 
lutely positive that many of 
you have experienced this 
action. "Getting open" is that 
stage during which you can feel 
the music to such a point that 
you can no longer hide it. 

Just check out people as they 
catch vibes from hip-hop music. 
Do they often close their eyes 
and seem to meditate as an MC 
kicks linguistics? What about 
your pal who just can not seem 
to wipe that smile off his or her 
face as they hear an incredible 
beat. People express their 
"openness" in various 
manners, as music is truly an 
individual experience. Keep 
this in mind next time you see 
someone bobbing his or her 
head ferociously and you say 
to yourself, "That kid is mad 
cornwalis"; just chill and let 
him or her experience what we 
all claim to represent to the 
fullest. . hip hop. 

It has become my the<iry that 
"getting open" is indeed a 
much more difficult task nowa 
days than it was m the past. 
Can you imagine what it would 
have be<'n like to be a part of 
the blossoming hip hop scene 
in New York back in the days? 
(roing to parks and seeing MC's 
control a crowd and a mic in 
such an exciting manner that 
It hit you m the chest"-' Ilnfor 
tunately, many of tf)days cur

ing myself, saw no part of this

of garbage music and a lack of 
attendance at live shows to

today In fact, upon closer 
examination, there is just as 

much fresh music out today as 
there was back in the day. The 
only difference now is that we 
have each got to pick up a 
shovel, pickaxe, or whatever 
and dig into the underground 
of hip-hop.

"Chicken Soup for the Soul" cures all 


h.ntertainment Editor 

This book is fantastic. You 
simply have to read it." Over 
the years I have heard this phrase 
numerous times and every time 
1 have followed through with 
these directives I have been dis- 
appointed. After much research, 
I have finally created a two-step 
process to guide my never-ending 
search for a good book. 


First, if the phrase "New York 
Times Bestseller" is printed any- 
where on the book jacket, it 
automatically gets bypassed. Sec- 
ond, whenever people recommend 
a book to me it gets filed under 
a mental list in the caverns of my 
mind titled "Things to avoid when 
in the bookstore." Since I have 
adopted this strategy, I am much 
happier with my reading 

Then, one lazy Saturday after 
noon while my roommate Erin 
and I were making lunch (or 
setting off the fire alarm depend- 
ing on how you want to look at 
it), my theory was disproved. My 
other roommate Heather was 
sitting on the couch reading a 
book given to her for her birthday. 
Sighs and chuckles filtered into 
the kitchen where serious exper- 
iments with burnt grilled cheese 
sandwiches were taking place. 
Finally, that infamous phrase, 
"This book is fantastic. You 
simply have to read it" reached 
my ears and the title Chicken Soup 
for the Soul was put on the list 
of things never to read. 

Later that day as I moved the 
coffee table collection of Calvin 
and Hobbes anthologies, I disco- 
vered my friend's book. Even 
though it was recommended and 
the words "New York Times 
Bestseller" were written on the 
cover, a combination of curiosity 
and boredom caused me to open 
it and begin to read, and read, and 
read. . . 

Chicken Soup for the Soul is a 
collection of "101 stories to open 
the heart and rekindle the soul." 
It was written and complied by 

Jack Canfield and Mark Victor 
Hansen who are both noted inspi 
rational speakers in the United 
States. Please note, however. 
Chicken Soup for the Soul is not 
one of those cheesy self-help 
books. Rather, it is a collection of 
stories by writers like Robert 

Each of the seven chapters 
concentrates on a certain aspect 
of life like love, parenting and 
learning. The actual stories range 
from one paragraph to five pages 
each. Regardless of length, each 
story is extremely powerful and 

Within these pages we learn of 
courageous people like Lee Sha 
piro, the hugging judge, who 
realized love is the most powerful 
force in the world and little 
Tommy Tighe, a six-year-old who 
acted on a vision that he could 
cause peace in the world. Cherie- 

Carter-Scott teaches us "The 
Rules for Being Human" and we 
are reminded that everything we 
needed to know we learned in 
kindergarten. Finally, we are 
given countless reasons why we 
should not be afraid to fail (after ^ 
all, even Babe Ruth struck out 
1 ,330 times in the course of hitting 
714 homeruns.) 

I often find myself picking up 
this book whenever I am having 
a bad day or just looking for some 
inspiration. I guess Mom was 
right. Chicken soup is the cure for 
all ills and my theories are not 
always right. 

Brother Cane basks 
in musical success 

Fulghum, which wil make you 
laugh, cry and actually think 
about your life. The stories within 
this book dare and inspire you to 
love, go after your dreams and 
basically live life to the fullest. 

Cultural Film : ' ' Shadowlands 


Special to the Villanovan 

In our society, we use such 
terms like love is magical, love 
is scary, love is powerful, madly 
in love and falling in love. . . to 
describe some ways people expe- 
rience love. This week's Cultural 
Film "Shadowlands" describes 
the love relationship between the 
well-known writer C.S. Lewis and 
the American poet Joy Gresham. 
Lewis comes to the realization 
that love is something so special 
that when we finally experience 
it, we do not want it taken away 
from us. 

C.S. Lewis was born a protest- 
ant in 1898 Belfast. His first novel 
was written by the time he was 
12. Lewis went to boarding school 
and then to Oxford University, 
where he later became a teacher. 
The central focus of many of 
I^wis' speeches was Christianity. 
"Shadowlands" directed by Ri 
chard Attenborough does not 
depict C.S. Lewis' life fully. First 
of all, it focuses on the relationship 
between Gresham and Lewis. 
Secondly, Lewis was a private 
man, so Attenborough had to 
assume the unknown parts of 
I^wis' life. 

Lewis is portrayed excellently 
in the movie by British actor 
Anthony Hopkins. The audience's 
first impression of Lewis is ga- 
thered in the first few scenes. We 
notice Lewis reads daily, teaches, 
sings in the choir, meets with his 
colleagues and then retires to the 
childhood house he shares with 
his brother, Warnie. Everything 
Lewis does is cut and dry until 
the day he meets American poet 
Joy Gresham (Debra Winger). Joy 
is the complete opposite of Lewis. 
She is outspoken; he is private. 
She is living life; he is speaking 
about it. Joy makes Lewis' routine 
world become confused and out of 
focus. Lewis is an aloof individual 
who hardly exhibits any emotions, 
while Joy's painful experiences 
have helped her grow into a wise, 
open and emotional individual 
who appreciates life and love with 
the pain they bring. 

Winger's portrayal of her char- 
acter is superbly done. She ap- 
pears realistic and appealing to 
the audience as a person we can 
identify with as well as admire. 
It is through Joy that Lewis learns 
to experience his emotions and 
truly love. Unfortunately, Lewis 
learns that with love comes pain, 
and he must question others to 

define and justify his feelings of 
love and pain. 

This movie is a must see for 
everyone. Come and experience 
the turmoil of love and pain we 
all can relate to through C.S. 
Lewis' life. Don't forget to bring 

The Monday evening showing 
at 7 p.m. will include a discussion 
about "C.S. Lewis and the Prob- 
lem of Pain" led by speaker 
William Werpehowski, a Chris- 
tian ethics teacher at Villanova.

The Alabama-based Brother 
Cane are enjoying the recent 
success of their second album 
with a new single and major tour. 
Seeds, their new album on Virgin 
Records, gave birth to a number 
one single on billboard's rock 
charts. "And Fools Shine On," the 
first single off the band's second 
album, has been extremely suc- 
cessful throughout the country. 
The quartet is on tour opening for 
Van Halen on the west coast 
through Oct. 15. 

"Everything is new and inspir- 
ing. We've learned to stretch and 
explore on this record," said 
Brother Cane singer/guitarist 
Damon Johnson. Their second 
album represents the two-year 
period of growth and self- 
evaluation that the band exper- 
ienced while making the transi- 
tion from playing tiny clubs in 
Birmingham, Ala., to opening for 
such bands as Aerosmith and 
Robert Plant. Damon stated, 

had to bring in a few outside 
writers. When I started writing 
the songs for Seeds, I did a bunch 
on my own and then sat down 
with the producer." 


"Shadowlands" focuses on the

"During the last tour, we all grew 
tighter as people, not only as 
musicians. Before the first record, 
I had never written anything in 
my life but a few poems, so we 

Brother Cane's new album gets 
messages across involving reli- 
gion, love, addiction and tempta- 
tion. The band members include, 
singer/guitarist Damon Johnson, 
guitarist David Anderson, bassist 
Roman Glick and drummer Scott 
Collier. The first single, "And 
Fools Shine On," has a haunting, 
compelling rhythm to it and 
addresses the agony of love lost. 
Other tracks on the album like 
"Rise On Water," "Breadmaker" 
and "Kerosene" are louder, and 
have a harder edge. This album 
is a must for every rock fan. 
Brother Cane are the youth of 
Rock and Roll.

go on home. 

Capricorn: You will have a brief 
romantic encounter on Tuesday

Women's volleyball rebounds 
at George Mason Tourney 

September 29, 1995* THE VILLANOVAN • Page 23 


Stall Reporter 

After startmg this season with 
a sluggish 1-5 record, the women's 
volleyball team has bounced back 
and won five out of its last six 
matches, which included a stretch 
in which they won 14 straight 
sets. Despite an eight -day layoff, 
the Cats won three out of four 
matches last week. 

'Nova defeated Big Five oppo 
nent LaSalle on Tuesday, Sept. 
19. Then the Cats travelled to 
Virginia to participate in the 
George Mason Tourney this past 
weekend. In the tournament, the 
Wildcats easily defeated Delaware 
and Oklahoma, but lost to host 
George Mason in the final. 

Against a weaker LaSalle 
squad, Villanova took care of 
business with a dominating effort, 
defeating the squad in thrt^ sets 
(15-3, 15-7, 15-5). Sophomore 
Stacy Evans led the way for the 
Cats as she had 11 digs and no 
hitting errors in 17 attempts 
(.647). Evan's performance earned 
her Big East Player-of-the-Week 
honors. Also contributing were 
sophomores Marisa Davidson and 
Kara Meier, as well as junior 
Debbi Picco. The three combined 
for 22 kills. 
1;. "More than half the balls we 
'spiked were kills," said Head 
Coach Ron Twomey. "We were 
putting everything away." 

Villanova opened the George 
Mason Tourney against Dela- 
ware. In the match, the Cats put 
.together another solid effort as 
they defeated the Blue Hens in 
, three sets (15-6, 15-8, 15-8)). 
Freshman Megan O'Brien and 
Cara Meier contributed on the 
attack as they respectively had 12 
and 10 kills. Another big role 
player was freshman Elizabeth 
Jones, who was all over the floor 
with six kills, five aces, 15 digs 
and four blocks. Senior Captain 
Cari Clawson distributed 35 

"[Clawson's] really mastering 
this offense," stated Twomey. 
"She's moving the ball around like 
a magician, which really opens up 
a lot of holes for our hitters." 

In the second match of the 
tournament, the Cats faced Okla-

homa (10-4), a strong Big Fight 
team. This match presented a 
couple of oppijrtunities for the 
Wildcats. First, with a win the 
Cats would have been over .5(X) 
for the first time this season. 
Secondly, no Villanova volleyball 
team has ever defeated a Big Eight 
Conference opponent. Like their 
last three matches, the Cats took 
three straight sets in their victory 
against the Sooners (15-10, 15-11, 
15-9). The Wildcats received a 
complete team effort as each 
player played extremely well in 
the squad's best effort of the 

"(It was] probably our biggest 
win of the season," said Twomey 
of his team's win against Okla 
homa. "We got on top and stayed 
on top." 

Evans led the way against 
Oklahoma. She had 19 kills in 33 
attempts for a .545 hitting percen- 
tage and she also had 11 digs. 
Young guns O'Brien and Jones 
each had a double-double. O'Brien 
recorded 14 kills and 28 digs and 
Jones notched 12 kills and 17 digs. 
Davidson added nine kills, 12 digs 

and seven blocks. Clawson tallied 
40 assists. 

"(It was|an outstanding hitting 
[X'rformance against a big block," 
said Twomey in reference to his 

In the final of the tourney, the 
Wildcats were overmatched 
against host George Mason, a 
team that has received votes in 
the USA/AVCA Top 25 Coaches 
Poll. The Cats came out flat and 
they paid for it, getting drilled 15- 
3 in the first game. The Cats were 
able to play better in the next two 
games, but it was not enough as 
they lost in three sets (3-15, 9-15, 
10-15). The loss snapped 'Nova's 
five match winning streak. 

Looking ahead, the Cats will try 
to return to their winning ways 
as they will play eight of their next 
10 matches at home. They will 
begin their homestand tonight at 
7 p.m. in the Jake Nevin Field- 
house. The Cats will then open 
their Big East Conference sche- 
dule against No. 10 Notre Dame 
on Sunday, Oct. 1, at 2 p.m. at 
the Jake Nevin Fieldhouse. 


Sophomore Stacy Evans has been a key contributor for the Wildcats. 
The team is looking forward to improving its record as it hosts a 
string of games.

Wildcats fall yard short of upsetting No, 8 JMU 

(Cuutinmd Irom pa^t' 2H) 
tavor of Park after the fourth 
series. The injury sped up the 
process, but Talley was commit 
ted to giving Park a g(xxi amount 
of playing time regardless of the 
injury situation. 

Talley said he would use Mar 
chese tomorrow against Buffalo if 
he is healthy. Nevertheless, he 
expects Park to be his starting 
quarterback since Marchese prob 
ably will not be ready to play. It 
would then be up to Park to 
determine his future. 

"If we win with Clint, I'd 
probably stick with Clint," said 

Even after the Cowsette fumble, 
there appeared little doubt that 
Park would walk away from his 
debut with a victory. James Mad- 
ison was staring at 94 yards of 
field against a defense that had 
been rather stingy all game. But 
JMU quarterback Mike Cawley, 
who attracted several pro scouts 
to the game, picked apart the 
Villanova defense. During the 
drive, he scrambled three times 
for 44 yards. 

"I think they were getting too 
set on knowing where I was when 
I dropped back," Cawley said. "I 
saw some openings and just 
reacted to the situation." 

The most crucial play came 

when JMU faced a 2ndand-10 
situation from its own 33 yardline. 
The Wildcats came with a blitz 
and Cawley dumped it off to the 
6-foot 5 Macey Brooks who 
streaked through the gap in the 
defense for a 53 yard gain. 

"You get burned by the blitz," 
said Cawley. "We burned them 
this time." 

"It was peek a -boo all day," said 
Talley. "He really hurt us the one 
time we blitzed in the last drive." 

Two weeks ago, Boston Univer- 

sity's Kevin Foley exploited Vil 
lanova's blitzing scheme during 
his own game-winning drive. 
Nevertheless, Talley stands by his 

"I don't really have a beef with 
our defense," he said. "Geez, they 
played really hard." 

The defense was led by free 
safety Curtis Dunaway, who 
made several spectacular plays. 
Not only did he record two pass 
break-ups and 13 tackles (10 of 
which were unassisted), he and 

teammate Kyle Helton (one inter 
ception) combined for several 
devastating hits in the secondary. 
Linebacker AJ. Burawski, one of 
the few seniors remaining in the 
lineup, recorded two tackles for 
losses. Sean Theis, Tyrone Fraz 
ier's replacement at middle line 
backer, left the game with a 

The special teams, buoyed by 
incredible kickoff coverage that 
put JMU's average starting posi- 
tion at its own 23 yardline, was 

respectable. In fact, if it were not 
for a 20 yard punt and Mark 
Kiefer's miss of a 31 yard chip 
shot at the end of the first half, 
the special teams would have been 
flawless (they even downed a punt 
at JMU's three yardline). 

While the 0-3 start is nothing 
short of disappointing, Coach 
Talley is not yet discouraged. He 
likens this season to 1989 when 
the team started 1-2. That team 
went on to win the Yankee Con- 
ference Championship. 

Men's soccer bows to ranked Knights 


Staff Reporter 

The men's soccer team travelled 
to New Jersey on Sept. 20 to face 
No. 8 ranked Rutgers, the newest 
member of the Big East Confer- 
ence. The Cats started off slowly, 
which is becoming a costly habit. 
With less than three minutes left 
in the first half, Rutgers forward 
Dan Martin sent one past goalie 
Aleko Zeppos for a 2-0 lead for the 
Scarlet Knights. This would be all 
they needed to clinch the victory. 

"Everyone was a little nervous 
going into Rutgers," said Zeppos. 

"Everyone calmed down and 
played hard." 

The Cats did settle down after 
half time and put solid pressure on 
the highly touted Rutgers defense 
with eight of their 10 shots coming 
in the second half. However, the 
game ended 2-0, and 'Nova's 
record dropped to 1-4-1. 

Besides having to deal with the 
loss, Head Coach Larry Sullivan 
endured several off -color remarks 
from the Rutgers fans throughout 
the game because of his discus- 
sions with the referees. As a 
result, several newspapers in the 
New Brunswick area had a few 

negative remarks concerning 
Coach Sullivan, as did a local 
paper on the Main Line. 

However, the team put these 
distractions behind them and 
traveled to UPenn three days 
later. The Cats rallied to tie the 
Quakers at two in double over- 
time. Freshman Lewis Domke 
scored in the second overtime on 
a nice pass from senior Alan 
Mezger to knot the score for good. 

Villanova 's record now stands 
at 1-4-2. However, looking beyond 
the record, the Cats are showing 
much improvement. The team is

iety of players on offense, while 
the defense, led by seniors Zeppos 
and Doug Nevins, is consistent. If 
the Cats can figure out a way to 
improve on their slow starts, the 
victories will surely follow. 

Goalie Zeppos believes that 
teams now travelling to the Main 
Line better not take the Cats 

"As a team, people are begin 
ning to get comfortable with each 
other and our team chemistry is 
much improved," he said. "We 
have an excellent chance against 
a strong West Virginia team." 

Villanova will host West Vir- 
ginia today at 3:30 p.m. in the 
team's home opener and then 
travel to LaSalle on Sunday to face 
the Explorers at 1 p.m.

shall. "She's running very well 

right now." 

Also running for the Wildcats 
were freshmen Katy Kelly (47th) 
and Sarah Brandy (48th), as well 
as junior Samara Lee (90th). 

According to Marshall, the 
Boston Cross Country Festival, as 
well as the rest of the meets early 
in the season, serves as good 
preparation for the championships 
later in the season. The main goal 
for the Wildcats is to win the most 
important championship — the 
NCAA championship. However, 
with the team's lack of experience, 
this task may be more difficult 
than ever. 

"I think this year is the most 
difficult year Villanova will ever 
have in trying to accomplish its 
goals," said Marshall. "Last year 
we were a very experienced 
team. . . This year we only have 
two of our top five scorerss, so [the 
team] is tremendously inexper 
ienced. ' 

Marshall, however, has confi 
dence in his runners. With the 
right mix of young talent and 
upperclass leadership, they may 
accomplish what they have set out 
to do. 

"I think the young ladies are 
really working well together and 
that's the strength of the team 
right now

The gridiron this past week was 
full of upsets as many top teams 
fell. The Villanova's No. 3 and 
No. 4 teams lost, opening up a 
couple slots in this week's Top 10. 
The Nu Sig Eppers and the Ber 
keley Crew both tasted defeat at 
the hands of the Boyz (28-12) and 
The Big Unit (21-18), respectively. 
Other teams in the Top 10 fared 
somewhat better, but did not win 
convincingly. Last week's top 
ranked team Good Fellas won, but 
failed to impress the pollsters 
with the 26-20 victory. Ezekiel

their opponent by only seven, 25- 

Amidst all the teams that 
struggled, there were some big 
winners last week. The teams 
that improved their standing with 
impressive performances include 
Mudslides, who gave up only their 
first touchdown this season in the 
37-6 victory. Dog Pile ran rough

Men's X-country takes second place in Boston 


Sta/J Reporter 

The men's cross country team 
placed second this past weekend 
at the Boston Cross Country 
Festival. In doing so the Wildcats 
defeated a number of teams who 
Ix-at them handidly the previous 
Saturday. Life College, the No. 2 
ranked NAIA schtx)l, edged the 
Cats by three points for a first 
place finish. NAIA schools are not 
associated with the NCAA, so 
'Nova was first among NCAA 
Division I schools. 

A trio of seniors led the way this 
week. Ken Nason finished sev- 
enth, with Kevin Christian! (8th) 
and Stephen Howard (13th) right 
behind him. Nason finished in 
24:21, which was 30 seconds off 
the blistering pace set by Ian 
Carswell of Harvard, who also 
won last week's meet. Christiani 
was one second behind Nason, 
while Howard finished in 24:39. 

Nason, an Ail-American last 
year with eligibility only for the 
cross country season, ran well 
with the front pack. 

"Nason can keep crawling up to 
the top," Head Coach John Mar- 
shall said. "You can look for him 
to be in the top five next week 
and position himself for maybe 
first or second at the Big East 
Championship meet." 

He certainly has the capabilities 
to do this, judging by his 14th 
place finish at last year's NCAA 

Christiani is also competing on 
Nason's level. 

"The seniors have done a great 
job leading the young freshmen 
and sophomores," Marshall said. 
"We are running extremely well 
as a unit, with the seniois serving 
as the nucleus of the team. It's 
also nice to have them running 
well as individuals because it 
helps the team succeed. The 
confidence that they're building 
now will be very valuable later in 
the season." 

In addition to Nason, Christiani 
and Howard, the team will be 
getting more support from senior 

Todd Tressler, who was ham 
pered by a bad cold which affected 
his performance. 

"It was important for Todd to 
get the run in on the course, " 
Marshall said. "Franklin Park 
will be the site of the NCAA 
Regional meet." 

Marshall was also very pleased 
with the races turned in by his 
fourth and fifth men, Coulby 
Dunn and Gabriel Soto, respec- 
tively. Dunn finished 19th and 
Soto was 21st. Both men finished 
with a time of 24:53. 

"Coulby is very consistent," 
Marshall said. "We knew he'd do 
a good job, but it's nice to see him 
really step up the way he has." 

Dunn, a freshman from Wallen 
paupack High School outside of 
Scranton, Pa., is used to success. 
He was the Pennsylvania state 
mile champion and state runner 
up in cross country. 

"Soto is coming along real 
well," Marshall said of the 
Southwest Texas State transfer. 
"He is in the process of adjusting 
to a new program." 

Marshall feels that the team is 
on track to achieve its goals for 
the season. 

"We try to prepare our runners 
for the championship meets," 
Marshall said. "We're loading up 
for the championship part of the 
season, trying to figure out who 
our top seven will be. Hof)efully, 
at the Big East Championships 
we'll see the fruits of our labor." 

Marshall will continue his 
search for the right combination 
tomorrow. The team will be in 
the Lafayette Invitational. 

Water polo falters with three losses 


Staff Reporter 

The men's water polo team 
participated in the Tenth Annual 
Wildcat Invitational last weekend 
as many parents and friends were 
on hand to see if the team could 
face the challenge of defending the 
team's No. 18 ranking. Unfortu- 
nately, the pressure appeared to 
be too much, and the Wildcats 
turned in a dismal 1-3 record for 
the weekend. 

In the Wildcats' first match No. 
19 Queens avenged a previous 
loss, squeaking away with a 17- 
13 victory. Sophomore Darren 
Hardel, who is 'Nova's leading 
scorer, led the team with five 
goals. Paul Granneman contrib- 
uted three goals in the effort. 

Marcus Sanford, Dave Prusa 
kowski, Brian Tomsheck, John 
Riley and Anthony Santoro each 
scored a goal apiece. 

In its first match-up this season, 
'Nova crushed lona in a sensa- 
tional 14-7 victory. Sanford, a 
junior, stepped up his game as he 
came away with an impressive 
five goals. Hardel, Santoro and 
Brian Swider were key contribu- 
tors with two goals apiece. Other 
scorers included Brian Scull, 
Riley and Jeff Winter. GoaHe Ben 
Igoe had an outstanding game 
with 16 saves. 

"No game is a guaranteed win 
in this particular tournament," 
said Assistant Coach Vicki Gor- 

man prior to the tournament. "We 
still have to come out strong and 
play a flawless game in order to 
come away with a victory." 

In yet another disappointing 
match, St. Francis managed to 
slide past 'Nova by a score of 11- 
10. Granneman, Hardel, Prusa- 
kowski and Riley picked up two 
goals each, while Sanford and 
Tomsheck contributed a goal to 
the effort. In goal, Igoe captured 
15 saves, but this was not enough 
ioT-th^ Cats -to come from behind 
to clinch the victory. 

The results of these matches 
put 'Nova up against Queens in 
a contest for third place. Once 
again, Queens delivered the Wild- 

cats a 15-9 loss. Despite three 
goals by Hardel and two by Gran 
neman, the Cats could not get past 
Queens' intense style of play. 
Riley, Sanford, Santoro and Tom 
sheck scored a goal each. Igoe 
recorded nine saves in goal. 

The disappointing outcome of 
the tournament dropped the Cats' 
record to 5-4, which will possibly 
jeopardize their standing in the 
College Water Polo Coaches Asso 
ciation Poll. 

The Wtkleftts look to return to 
their winning form as they travel 
south to face George Washington, 
Washington & Lee and Richmond 
on Sept. 30. 

Field hockey team loses to 
Huskies, remain winless in 
Big East 


Staff Reporter 

The Villanova field hockey 
team suffered a tough weekend on 
the road as they were defeated by 
UConn 8-1 this past Saturday. 
The team currently stands at 1- 
5 (0-3 Big East) on the season. 

The aggressive Huskies were 
just too much for the Wildcats to 
handle. The game started off on 
a discouraging note when Connec 
ticut was granted a penalty shot 
due to a high stick violation which 
the Huskies scored upon less than 
three minutes in. They would 

follow up with three more goals 
throughout the first half before 
Villanova would gain control and 
score its lone goal of the game, 
with junior captain Jill Basile 
finding the net. 

Despite their lapse at the end 
of the first half, the Huskies came 
back totally rejuvenated in the 
second half to score two goals 
within the first ten minutes of 
play as well as a final two insu- 
rance goals at the close of the 
game. Unfortunately, 'Nova could 
not get the ball out of its defensive 

Special mention must go out to 
both of 'Nova's freshmen goalies. 

who did an outstanding job com 
bining for 13 saves on the day. 
Starting goalie Sarah Wiggin had 
a strong eight saves while Amy 
Acchione turned in an impressive 
performance with five saves in the 
first game of her collegiate career. 
Goaltending was especially diffi- 
cult against this Connecticut 
team who scored two of its goals 
off of penalty shots and two off 
of a unique, hard to defend, corner 

Hopefully, things will be looking 
up for the Cats this week. They 
will be in action this Sunday, Oct. 
1, at 1:00 p.m. in Villanova Sta- 
dium against Holy Cross. 


Junior Jill Booile was the only player to score for the Wildcats against 
UConn. Even though the team has been competitive, it has been unable 
to muster the victories. 


Athletes of the Week 

Josh Dolbin — 

Dolbin wins the 
award for the second 
time in three weeks. He 
scored two touchdowns 
in Villanova's 28-27 
loss to James Madison. 
The first came on a 
fantastic diving catch 
from 33 yards out. The 
second came on a sim. 
pie hook pattern that 
he turned into a 35 yard 
score. He has 12 
catches and three touch- 
downs for the three 
games this season. 

Jen Rhines — 



Rhines captured first 
place in the Boston 
Invitational this past 
weekend. In her first 
race of the year, she 
paced the 'Nova squad 
to an easy victory. Run- 
ning against college 
and pro competition, 
Rhines demonstrated 
why she is one of the 
top runners in the

Sophomore Dolbin proving he is one strong receiver 


Sfxirts Editur 

By the timt' all of the statistics 
were tallied for the 1994 season, 
sophomore Josh Dolbin was 
clearly the Cats' No. 2 receiver. 
Last year hs a feshman, Josh was 
second on the team with 31 recep 
tions for 363 yards. For two of the 
last three weekends, however, 
Dolbin not only became the No. 
1 receiver, he played like one. 

In 'Nova's overtime loss to 
James Madison, Josh caught four 
passes for 87 yards, scoring two 
touchdowns. I'he first was a 
spectacular 33-yard diving recep- 
tion into the endzone, the second 
a short hook pattern that he 
turned into a 35-yard catch and 
run score. 

Dolbin's new role came after the 
Cats' No. 1 receiver and second 
team All Yankee Conference 
member, Brian Finneran, sus- 
tained a shoulder injury. Josh's 
position shift came rather quickly, 
but he has welcomed the 

"As a receiver you want to be 
thego-toguy," Dolbin said. "I was 
the 'one weak' |receiver|, but they 
moved me over to the 'one strong.' 
Right now I'm concentrating more 
on the opportunity than 

What is also novel is that Dolbin 
is being looked to as a scoring 
threat. Despite his freshman 
successes, Josh did not score in 1 1 
games last season. In the Cats' 
first thrt^ games, however, Dolbin

According to the article, Villa-

with a "secondary violation" if 
the allegations are true. The 
NCAA enforcement director said 
there are approximately 1,100 
violations a year. Most of these 
result in no punishment with the 
most stringent penalty being a 20 
percent reduction in scholarships. 
The seriousness of the penalty 
depends upon whether the more 
critical allegations are true, 
namely that Villanova paid 

KYW-TV has featured the story 
twice on its news casts. During 
an interview appearing on Sun- 
day, Sept. 24, Ciccone stated that 
"Villanova has lied seriously to 
the NCAA and [the NCAA) is now 
aware of the fact that Villanova 
lied" because he sent the NCAA 
relevant documentation. Ciccone 
and Lou Tilley, the sportscaster 
who performed the interview, 
presented a piece of paper that 
Ciccone alleges is a receipt for a 
deposit of cash. The paper, he 
states, shows that the basketball 
program paid him through 

Missanelli's article states that 
sources close to the program 
maintain that no money was 
exchanged. In fact, a far different 
scenario is presented by people 
close to Hastings. According to 
them, Hastings was simply help 
ing his brother-in-law Tom In 
glesby, the head basketball coach 
at Archbishop Carroll. Further 
more, they claim that Ciccone was 
willing to do the tutoring for free 
as a favor to Hastings and that 
there was no agreement concern 
ing admittance to the August inian 

Ciccone admits to approaching 
Hastings about the tutoring, but 
claims that Hastings agretni to use 
his influence as a member of the 
four person Augustinian admis 
sions board. Furthermore, Ciccone 
said that during a telephone 
conversation, there was an "un 
spoken agreement" that he would 
actively encourage Bigus to com 
mit to Villanova. 

During the Sunday broadcast of 
Sports Kap, Tilley asked the 
rhetorical question, "If [Cicconej 

is the liar they say, then why 
would they want him anywhere 
near the kid?" 

Ciccone has a reputation as an 
eccentric teacher, but his accomp- 
lishments are well-documented. 
He has received letters of corrt- 
mendation from both former Gov- 
ernor Bob Casey and former 
President George Bush. Addition- 
ally, Missanelli writes that Cic- 
cone's teaching abilities are "al- 
most legendary" and point to one 
specific example where all 35 
students of his advanced college- 
preparatory calculus class passed 
the Advanced Placement exam. 

However, Ciccone's teaching 
career has been marked with 
scandal. He was fired from his 
tenured teaching position at 
Henderson High School in West 
Chester, Pa., in Nov. 1991, when 
the district accused him of insu- 
bordination and mental incompe- 
tence. As reported in the May 26, 
1993 issue of The Philadelphia 
Inquirer, during the five-day 
hearing over Ciccone's dismissal 
from Henderson, Paul J. Fink of 
Merion testified, "I believe that 
[Ciccone] should not be allowed to 
teach in a classroom until he has 
had adequate care from a 

The Inquirer also reported that 
after he was fired, Ciccone then 
accused Henderson Superintend 
ent Thomas Kent of engaging in 
sexual relationships with Hender 
son students. He also hired a 
private investigator to tail Hender 
son Principal Eliot I^arson, whom 
he accused of unlawful activity. 

After being dismissed from his 
job in the math department of 
Kingsway Regional High School, 
The Philadelphia Inquirer re 
ported that he planned to sue the 
district forSlOmillion in damages 
for wrongful dismis.sal. Ciccone 
claimed in the Inquirer dirUc\e {ha\ 
he was forced out of both districts 
because of a conspiracy stemming 
from professional jealousy. He 
also said that "unscrupulous 
administrators" had pressured 
his students to turn against him. 

Missanelli's decision to cover 
Ciccone's story was questioned by 
fellow broadcaster, Al Morganti. 
on PRISM'S "The (,reat Sports 
Debate." He believed the story 
was not newsworthy 'enough to 
warrant the coverage it received. 

Missanelli responded, "I feel 
responsibility as a journalist first 
and foremost and that 's where my 
responsibility ends." 

To date, no other print media 
covered the alleations and KYW 
TV remains the .sole Philadelphia 
area station to broadcast the 

has already scored three times. 

"It has Ix^'n a while since I've 
(x'en in the end zone, since high 
school actually," Dolbin said. "It 
was a new feeling." 

In the JMU game, Dolbin had 
two different, but able quarter 
backs at the throwing end of this 
new feeling. Tom Marcheese 
completed the first scoring strike 
to Josh, Clint Parks the second. 
Dolbin admits that he has to 
contend with their varying styles. 

"Marcheese is more fluid with 
the offense," Dolbin said. "Clint 
has to adjust sometimes. He 
doesn't pick up all of the checks, 
but he is doing well. Each quar 
terback is different with the ball. 
You just have to pick that up." 

Both quarterbacks have been 
able to find Dolbin Ixvause of the 
steady bl(Kkirig by the offensive 
line. Josh also credits the running 
game for opening up the passing 

"What has Ix'en helping the 
receivers is that the line has been 
bkxking real well," Dolbin said 
"Todd Golemi and Anthony 
Cowsette have been running real 
hard and giving the quarterbacks 
a lot more time than they had last 
year. That gives us more time to 
get downfield, work the defensive 
backs and get open." 

Besides his transition from one 
weak to one strong, Dolbin has 
dealt with the move from playing 
running back in high school to 
receiver in college. This switch 
has proven more difficult but Josh 

has trimmed down to improve on 
his moves. 

"Last year I weighed about 1% 
and I felt 1 was a little slower," 
Dolbin said. "But now I'm 190, I'm 
more comfortable with my height 
|6 f(X)t| and weight. I'm still not 
the graceful receiver 1 want to be, 
but I'm just going out there to 
improve every day." 

Fortunately for the Cats, he is. 

"This is my second season as 
a receiver, Dolbin said. I just have 
to work on my routes, work on 
the defensive backs and reading 
coverages. It's been a big change, 
but I think I have adapted really 

If Dolbin has anything to say 
alxjut it. he will have a hand, if 
not both, in the Cats' first victory. 



Sophomore Josh Dolbin scored two touchdowns in last week's loss. The wide receiver has stepped 
up for the Cats and has excelled since Brian Finneran went down with a shoulder injury. 

No. 16 women's soccer team 
continues its winning ways

In two impressive wins last 
week, the Villanova women's

the national spotlight. After up 
setting nationally ranked Penn 
State and crushing Big East rival 
Providence, USA Today ranked 
the team No. 16 in the country. 

I^st Wednesday, 'Nova beat

nationally. The Cats outlasted the 
Lions with a great offensive 
attack and a stifling defense. The

cats' record improved to 5 1 J 
overall and 2 10 in the Big East. 

The offense is really starting to 
come on, joining an already out- 
standing defense and solid goal 
tending corps. 

"We are coming together as a 
team at the right part of the 
season," said ChamlxTJaiii "We 
have the tough part of the season 
coming up." 

Coach Chamberlain believes 
the team has a solid sfiot al 
winning the conference, hut it has 
to [X'rform well against the tough 
competition. Coming up on the 
schedule, in the next coui)!*' weeks 
is Notre Dame (No. 2), I 'Conn (No. 
5) and Rutgers. They are all tough 
conference rivals who will give 
the Cats a challenge. 

"If we can win two of those 
games, we will tx in gcKxt shaiw 
and if we win all three, it will put 
us in a great position to win the 
Big Fast, said Chamberlain.

Villanova stood three yards 
away from upsetting a top-ranked 
team. A batted-ball later, though, 
the team left the field in an all 
too-familiar fashion. 

Down by one point in overtime, 
Head Coach Andy Talley elected 
to go for a two-point conversion 
rather than force a second over 
time session. 

"We had a lot of guys banged 
up," said Talley. "I just felt like 
maybe we could seize the moment 
and jump on our momentum." 

As sophomore quarterback 
Clint Park's pass dropped incom- 
plete, the Wildcats dropped their 
third straight game, two of which 
came in the final minutes. 

"It's three weeks of the same 
damn [stuff]," said Talley. "I'm 
pretty frustrated. We should have 
won the game. I'm sick of saying 
that. Our players are sick of 
hearing it." 

Villanova appeared to have a 
firm grasp on a victory as the team 
prepared to go in for a touchdown 
with just under six minutes 
remaining in the game. A touch- 
down would have given the un- 
derdogs a two touchdown advan- 
tage, but fate would not cooperate. 

Junior tailback Anthony 
Cowsette, who had made several 
electrifying runs en route to a 1 18 
yard rushing performance, 
coughed up the ball at JMU's six 
yardline. The Dukes then 
marched to the game-tying touch- 
down on an eight-play, 94 yard 

"That's the turning point," said 
Talley. "If we don't fumble the 
football and punch it in , the score 
is 28-14. The game is over." 

James Madison's head coach, 
Alex Wood, was happy to escape 
with a victory. 

"A win is a win is a win," he 

Cowsette has demonstrated a 
propensity to fumble as he deli- 
vered the ball to the opponents on 
both of his only two carries in the 
Boston University game. Never- 
theless, his touchdown, 6.2 yards 
a carry and six first downs this 
game demonstrated why he will 
be a crucial part of the offense for 
the rest of the season. 

"He ran hard," said Talley. "He 
ran very, very hard." 

The game ended in a loss, but 
it bore witness to Park's Villanova 
debut. He finished 1 1 of 21 for 130 
yards and a touchdown. The 
quick quarterback also has the 
added dimension of scrambling 
and occasionally calls his own 
number. He also demonstrated 
poise and confidence. 

"Even though we kept losing 
players, we still had the spirit 
going," said Park. "It came right 
down to the end and we thought 
we were going to win." 

Park scored the touchdown that 
brought 'Nova within one point in 
overtime as he converted a naked 
bootleg from three yards out. 

The defeat took some luster 
away from another solid perfor- 
mance by sophomore sensation 
Josh Dolbin. Dolbin, who has 
become the go-to man in the 
absence of Brian Finneran, hauled 
in two touchdowns. The first 
came on a spectacular diving 
catch of a Tom Marchese pass 
while the second came on 35 yard 

Marchese, the starting quarter- 
back for the third straight week, 
left the game during the third 
offensive series with bruised ribs. 
Coach Talley had entered the 
game planning to lift Marchese in

New ticket plan stresses efficiency 


News Editor 

The 1995% student basketball 
ticket distribution plan was re- 
leased Sept. 29. Four hundred 
season tickets will be distributed 
on a first-come first-served basis 
at 8 a.m. on Nov. 5. 

Those students who do not 
receive season tickets will be 
eligible to participate in seven 
lotteries which will be used to 
distribute the 1,100 remaining 
tickets for each of the duPont 
Pavilion games, the 1,500 remain- 
ing tickets for the Big Five games 
played at the CoreStates Spec- 
trum and the 2,500 re mainir^ 
tickets for the North Carolina, 

Georgetown and Connecticut 
games, all of which will take place 
at the Spectrum. 

Last year only 300 season 
tickets were available to students. 
That number was increased this 
year to accommodate more "die- 
hard" fans, according to Michael 
O'Brien, Student Government 
Association president. "There 
were plans last year thai we 
needed to change [the number of 
season tickets], recognizing that 
this year was especially basketball 
oriented because of the high 
expectations," he said. 

People will not be permitted to 
form a line for the season ticket 
distribution until 5 p.m. on Nov 
4. ''W« R**t uj> \hv system where 
Betting there early doesn't benefit 

[students]," said O'Brien. Robert 
Nashak, president of the Basket- 
ball Club, said there is a possibility 
that those students who arrive 
before the stated time will be 
ineligible to receive the tickets. 
Once the line is formed, O'Brien 
said students will be informed as 
to whether or not they will receive 
tickets, and only those who will 
receive tickets must wait in line 
until the following morning. 

The lottery portion of the plan 
is "a lot more efficient this year," 
said Nashak. "We're going to 
notify everyone right away, 
within a half hour" about who 
will receive the tickets in the 
particular package, he added. He 
said wailiiiK around at the lotter- 
ies was "the main complaint."

Greek Affairs chair added to SGA 


Staff Reporter 

A new cabinet position was 
added to the Student Government 
Association (SGA) this year. The 
Greek Affairs Chair was imple 
mented to provide specialized 
representation for the 40 percent 
of students involved in Greek 
organizations on campus. Pre- 
viously, there was no specific link 
between the SGA and the Greek 

The main reason for establish- 
ing the position was to open up 
communication lines between the 
Interfratemity Council (IFC) and 
the Panhellenic Association. SGA 
President Mike O'Brien wanted to 
put this large percentage of the 
Villanova population on "equal 
footing" with other major groups 
on campus. There are already 
cabinet positions representing 
athletic and multicultural groups, 
so to add a chair tht woud repres- 
ent the Greek population seemed 
logical, he said. 

As a new position, the duties of 
the Greek Affairs chair have not 
been clearly defined. Co-Chairs 

Kate Hess and Gary Mitton and 
Assistant to Greek Affairs Leo 
nard Velez work mainly to bring 
information to the Greeks from 
the SGA. All are members of 
Greek societies and this helps to 
provide a link between the two 
groups. The Greek chairs have 
been attending IFC meetings to 
keep up to date on current issues 
involving the fraternities. A sim 
ilar program is in the works for 
the Panhellenic Council. 

Besides linking the IFC and 
Panhellenic Council to the SGA, 
the chairs seiVe mainly as an 
informational resource for stu 
dents. Hess, co-chair, stressed 
that the information is for Greeks 
as well as non-Greeks. The posi 
tion was created for both sides of 
the Greek issue, sa>d Hess. Infor 
mation will be made available for 
anyone on campus who has ques- 
tions about the Greek community. 
The new chairs hope that non- 
Greeks who want to know more 
about the Greek system will seek 
them out. 

For the most part, the new 
Greek Affairs chairs are com 
pletely open to stiggestions. They 

are looking for people to come to 
them with issues and problems 
that need to be addressed. "Vil 
lanova's Greek system is very 
unique," said Hess. It has partic 
ular interests that require action. 
The fact that 40 percent of stu 
dents have a common interest in 
the Greek system is important to 
the new chairs, according to 

"It makes a lot of sense to 
establish a position for the Greeks. 
Such a large group on campus 
deserves to be represented in the 
SGA," said sophomore Floyd 
Cronin. "Especially since other 
groups of similar status already 
have cabinet positions." 

As with other cabinet positions, 
applications were taken from 
those who were interested in 
specific positions, and appoint 
ments were made by O'Rrim and 
Vice President Stacey McArdle. 
Mitton and Hess have regular 
office hours in the SGA office and 
they welcome students to come 
with any concerns or ideas they 
might have. "We're definitely 
looking for suggestions," said 

Both Nashak and O'Brien said 
there will be less opportunity to 
cheat this year's system compared 
to last year's. There are plans to 
use Wildcard readers at the lot- 
teries to stop people from acquir- 
ing more than one ticket. Also, the 
Wildcards will be used to bar 
students with season tickets from 
entering the lotteries, said Na- 
shak. O'Brien called this year's 
plan "more fair." 

This year, a "Senior Night" has 

been scheduled for the Feb. 18 
lottery which will distribute 
tickets to the University of Con- 
necticut game. The lottery will be 
open, initially, only to seniors 
from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. After this 
time, any additional tickets will 
be available to other students. 

"We think we did a pretty good 
job," said Nashak. "Unfortu- 
nately, some people are not going 
to be able to get tickets [to every 
game]," he said. 

CAT brings Vitale to 
campus for speech 



Dick Vitale, college basketball 
analyst for ESPN, will give a 
motivational speech titled "The 
CiAmv of Life" in the Jake Nevin 
Fit'ldhouse on Monday, Oct. 9 at 
7:30 p.m. 

Ideas and Issues, a subcommit- 
tee of the C ampus Activities team 
(CAT) headed by sophomore 
Maura Dunfey. met last spring to 
brainstorm over the activities 
schedule for this fall semester, 
said Meghan Mooney, assistant 
diretti)r (it the Office of Student 
Development Mcxmey and Dunfey 
worked dunng the summer to 
invite Vitale and other jx>rformers 
to campus. "It's a fun program," 
M(K>noy said. 

'The Game of Life" first aired 
on ESPN in lyyi and is Vitale's 
most publicized speech. He gives 
this talk regularly for athletic 
groups and corporations, said 
Mooney. "He has a ton of energy," 
and he uses his basketball analogy 
to get people motivated about life, 
she said. 

Vitale recently wrote a book 
about motivation, so there will }>♦■ 
a Ixjok signing in Connelly Pla/a 
from 5-6:30 p.m. before the speech, 
said Mooney. CAT ordered 300 
books to be sold at the signing for 
$15 each. Because it is in hard- 
cover, the retail price is $22.95. 
"Everyone is invited. He's very 
personable. He'll meet everyone 
and take pictures," she added. 

A season ticket package will be r 
raffled off to one Villanova stu 
dent, said Mooney. Students will 
be allowed to enter through one 
door only so they will "have a 
chance to win," she said. 

"Ti( kef sales are goin^ well," 
said Mojney. I ickels are $8, and 
they are available in the CAT 
office (214 DouKhertv Hail) and m 
Connelly I'laza. Seating is limittn) 
because the stage will ^x' set up 
in the center of the r(K)m and 1,(MK) 
folding chairs will surround it 
There will be no upstairs seatmg, 
she added. 

CAT attempted to schedule 
Vitale's preMiitation for either 
the Wild( at Roar, or before Home- 
COmiri)^ t>e« aiisr students will 
have midterms, said Mooney, but 
the scheduling did \\u\ workout. 
Vitale vSa id he thinks of his appear- 
ance at Villanova as a "post- 
Homecoming celebration." 

Vitale joined ESPN during the 
1979-80 basketball season after a 
successful coaching career. He 
also provides commentary in his 
"Dick Vitale's Fast Break" seg- 
ment which airs on "SportsCen- 
ter" during the college basketball 
season, and he is a college basket- 
bal analyst for ESPN Radio. He 
b^an his eoaehing career at East 
Rutherford Hi^h School in New 
Jersey. He also was an assistant 
coach at Rutgers University and 
he coached at the University of 

Vitale serves as a spokesperson 
for Pepsi, Addidas and Mohinder 
Sporting Goods. He also has made 
appearances in "Naked Gun" and 
"The Cosby Show," and he has 
written three books. 

Vitale received recognition from 
"Basketball Times" as one of the 
"Five Most Influential Basketball 
Personalities of 1983," and he was 
voted "Sports Personality of the 
Year" by the American Sportscas- 
ters Association in 1989, and by 
the NIT Metropolitan Media in 
1991. He also was inducted into 
the Michigan Basketball Coaches 
Hall of Fame and the University 
ol iH'troit Hall of Fame, and he 
has received six nominations for 
CABLE ACE Awards, cable's top 

"I'm excited," said Mooney. 
There has been a positive response 
from the students and from the 
community, and "if we can't sell 
it out, I'm going to be disap- 
pointed," she added

Students learn test preparation skills 


Staff Reporter 

The University Counseling Cen- 
ter offers two types of skills 
workshops for all Villanova stu- 
dents. One deals with time man- 
agement skills and the other 
focuses on test taking skills. 

These workshops are held 
throughout the semester on Mon- 
days and Tuesdays at different 
times so that the greatest amount 
of students may attend. All work- 
shops are free, and students do not 
need to sign up for them. The 
meetings are held in the Univer 
sity Counseling Center of Corr 
Hall, Room 106 and are led by Dr. 
Edward J. Reilly, study skills 

Even though the workshops 
dealing with time management 
are completed, it is possible to 
visit Reilly, and he will help any 
student manage his/her time. 
Reilly discusses with students the 
fact that everyone has "a prime- 
time, when they are most alert. 
This is the time that they should 
be doing their work rather than 
laundry or any of the other thmgs 
that take up their time." It is 
important, according to Reilly, 
that the student sets priorities 

and does not get so involved m 
extra-curricular activities that he 
or she becomes overwhelmed. 
Reilly stressed the importance of 
breaking up the workload into 
manageable pieces. He referred to 
this as the "pepperoni theory." 
"Just like you would not try to eat 
a pepix-roiii whole. You have to 
slice il up to enjoy it. The same 
should be done with your work- 
load," he said. 

The new breaking thing 
in learning is the

dent in his or her learning 

The exam prep workshop will 
begin on Oct. 9 and will continue 
on Mondays and Tuesdays until 
Thanksgiving break. This work 
shop includes a packet that covers 
such topics as how to avoid 
cramming and the best way to 

review material. The packet also 
contains test-taking tips. 

The workshop is geared to 
assist any student m organizing 
his/her time and to teach more 
efficient study skills in an attempt 
to achieve the best grades possible. 
According to Reilly, it is possible 
for any student to be successful 
as long as he/she is organized. 

Theologian to address

One time saver and "the new 
breaking thing in learning is the

that a student might need can be 
found quickly by just a touch of 
the button. There is even an on- 
line writing center in case a 
student has a question and the 
writing center is closed," said 

The Learning Skills program 
also offers audio-visual aides and 

Press Release 

Dr. Paul Misner, professor of 
historical theology at Marquette 
University since 1979, will ad 
dress the topic of "The Conversion 
of John Henry Newman and the 
Unity of the Churches" on Mon 
day, Oct. 9, in the Villanova Room 
of the Connelly Center at 7:30 p.m. 
The lecture is the first of two in 
commemoration of the 150th 
anniversary of John Cardinal 
Newman's reception into the 
Catholic Church. 

Dr. Misner is the author of 

Papacy and Development: Newman 
and the Primacy of the Pope and 
Social Catholicism in Europe, and 
many articles on Newman, social 
Catholicism and major figures in 
Catholic anti modernism. He has 
held two Fulbright professorships, 
in 1975-76 at the University of 
Marburg, and 1985-86, at the 
Institute for European History in 
Mainz. Active in the North Amer- 
ican Society of Ecumenists, he 
served as its president 1984-85. 

The lecture is free and open to 
the public.

NEW YORK - Sheik Omar 
Rahman and nine other mili-

Sunday of conspiring to carry 
out bombings and assassina-

United Nations, other New 
York landmarks and to kill 
hundreds of people in hopes of 
forcing the United States to 
abandon its support for Israel 
and Egypt. 

A Federal jury that had 
deliberated over seven of the 
last nine days had returned to 
a heavily guarded courtroom in 

Manhattan and pronounced 
the 10 defendants guilty on 48 
of 50 charges. 

Speedy verdict sets 
O.J. free 

LOS ANGKLES - The dou 

hie murder trial of Orenthal 
James Simpson came to a start 
ling halt Tuesday, when a 
jury of 10 women and two men 
cleared him of charges. 

The verdict was decided 16 
months after Nicole Brown 
Simpson and Ronald L. dold 
man were stabbed to death 
outside Mrs. Simpson's con- 
dominium and after nine 
months of testimony. As the 
verdict was read, much of the 
nation, including President 
Clinton, stopped to listen. The 
Simpson verdict, as with the 

Simpson case, once more di- 
vided the nation along racial 

Simpson fans waved O.J. on 
as he was escorted back to his 
home at 360 North Rock-

A.C. Cowlings. It was Cowlings 
who accompanied Simpson in 
the white Ford Bronco chase on 
June 17, 1994, five days after 
the killings. 

Dole and Gingrich 
dispute over G.O.P. 
tax cut proposal 


Dole raised the possibility 
today that Senate Republicans 
might not go along with the 
entire $245 billion in tax cuts 
that they had agreed to with 

their House counterparts. But 
Speaker Newt Gingrich imme- 
diately disputed this view, 
vowing that he and the House 
were completely committed to 
the tax cut. 

Dole's pronouncement was 
the first time that he had 
spoken so pessimistically m 
public about the tax cut, and 
it came at a time when opinion 
polls showed that the Demo 
cratic strategy of linking 
budget cuts and planned reduc- 
tions in Medicare and Medicaid 
with a tax cut for the wealthy 
was starting to take hold with 
the public. 

Gingrich, ap{x^aring on the 
ABC program "This Week," 
said it would be "virtually 
imp(jssible" to win approval in 
the House for a smaller tax cut.

different fields one can enter with 
a degree in education. "It's a great 

attribute to the department and 
to the University," said Heitz 
iiiann, 1 he program will iiuiude 
"brief presentations and anec 
dotes by several teachers who 
have graduated from our pro

.After nearly two semesters of work, the underwater mural in St. Mary's tunnel is finally completed. 
The project was funded by SEPTA and Facilities Mangement. 

Mural completed in tunnel 


Sta/J Reporter 

The walls of the Saint Mary's 
tunnel underneath the SEPTA R.S 
Line have been under renovation 
for the past two semesters. The 
walls are now completely painted 
with an underwater theme. This 
liroject was undertaken as a result 
of the efforts of Commerce and 
Finance Senator Sneha Patel, 
former Engineering Senator Gina 
DeRosa and Engineering Senator 
Stacey Raygor. This renovation 
project was funded by SEPTA and 
Facilities Management. 

The thrt^ students lived in the 
West Campus apartments last 
year and had to walk through the 
tunnel each day. According to 
Patel, "The walls of the tunnel 
were covered with graffiti, it was 
dirty, smelled bad and was just 
unpleasant." They realized some 
thing needed to he done and were 
willing to initiate a facelift. 

Before any renovation [)lans 
could b<' made, th<' senators had 
to establish ownership of the 
tunnel. The group first called Dr, 
Ki( hard A. Neville, vice president 
of Residenc<' Fife, and were iii 
formed that the tunnel was not 
the property of the Universitv 
Patel then called SEPTA where 
she was eagerly granted [x-rmis 
sion to pnxeed as netessarv with 
the refurbishing of the tunnel 
The three activists were informed 
that the University would provide 
any assistance relevant to th»' 
success of t he project , SEPTA and 
Kevin O'Donnell, su^xTintendent 
of grounds, provided the initial 
white paint net'ded to prime the 
walls and also an anti graffiti 
I oating 

The Student Government Asso 

ciation (SGA) then placed FYl's in 
the Villanovan attempting to 
enlist student volunteers for the 
project. Once assembled, the 
group began to discuss possible 
themes. The group wanted a 
theme with artwork that was not 
difficult in order to maximize 
participation. As a result, the 
underwater theme emerged as the 
final decision, Patel, DeRosa and 
Raygor, along with members of 
the SGA and their small group of 
student volunteers, began scrap- 
ing the walls of the tunnel last 
March, SEPTA helped in the 
cleaning pnx^ess by blasting the 
walls with high pressure water. 
Dan Riley of Facilities Manage- 
ment then rejx'ated this pnx:ess 
a few weeks later. Riley served as 
the SfiA's direct contact with 
Facilities Management and was 
the person the group turned to 
when It needed supplies. 

During the iktIcxI when the 
walls of the tunnel were left 
white, vandals had carved them 
with graffiti. This prompted Patel 
to write a letter to the Villa- 
novan. and Its publication 
brought with it ;u"i increased 
awareness of the project. The 
volunteers painted over the walls 
with whitewash again and were 
readv to Ix'gin work on the murals 
Using paint, brushes and rollers 
provided by Facilities Manage 
ment, the volunteers Ix'gan paint 
ing the murals relying only on 
their own artistic talents The 
ma)ority of the painting was 
(ompleted prior to the U'ginning 
of this s<'mester However, the 
final touches were completed this 
past Saturday 

"I hope other students will 
resixH t the hard wfirk of all those 
involved and realize t hat was done 

for the Villanova community," 
said Patel. So far the only damage 
to the tunnel has been a few 
names etched into the stone. 
"This project was done by a group 
of volunteers for the enjoyment of 
all whose daily paths involve the 
use of the St. Mary's tunnel," she

Seven service trips will travel 
with 87 participants to assist 
Christian-based community de- 
velopment projects over fall break. 
Campus Ministry has three trips 
to Habitat for Humanity sites in 
West Virginia, South Dakota and 
Louisiana. Four other mission 
trips help the St. Francis Inn in 
Philadelphia, the Christian Appa- 
lachia Project in Kentucky, Naza 
reth Farm in West Virginia and 
Mission de Amistad in Mexico set 
up by the Diocese of Erie, Pa. 

vStudents live simply and mod 
estly and work hard for the week, 
according to Ass(x:iate Directors 
of Campus Ministry Barbara 
Haenn, who plans the four mission 
trips, and Noreen Cameron, who 
organizes the Habitat for Huinan 
ity trips. On the four mission 
trips, the work ranges from tutor 
ing to repairing ht)mes to assisting 
the elderly. The Habitat for Hu 
manity trips help construct hous- 
ing in needy areas. 

The impact of the work and 
experience is felt not only by the 
community, but by the volunteers. 
"The experience shows how much 
15 people can do who really care 
and are committed," said Joe 
Logan, who has worked on a 
Habitat for Humanity trip. Haenn 
said, "Students get back 100 fold 
more than they give." She believes 
participants witness and gain 
from the richness in values and 
personal strength many indigent 
communitives have. 

Volunteers receive an exper 
ience unique from many other 
students. "1 saw places in the 

United States that had no running 
water, (a condition] that 1 thought 
only existed in third world con- 
tries," said Rebecca Umland, who 
has traveled with three previous 
service trips. Cameron also said, 
"The trips give students an op 
portunity to live as a community 
that has very little sixial trap- 
pings." "Taking one week out of 
my life to participate in a service 
trip has since affected every week 
of my life," said Tanya f^ace, who 
went on the service trip to Mexico 
two years ago. 

Students get bacic 
hundred-fold more than 

Barbara Haenn, 
associate director, 

Campus Ministry 

Students are selected to partic- 
ipate by a competitive application 
prcKess. They attend meetings to 
prepare for the trip culturally as 
well as strategically. Sites are 
chosen "to expose students to 
Ijoverty, different cultural expe- 
riences and to place students 
outside of their comfort zone," 
said Cameron. 

Students pay for their own trips 
through fundraisers and personal 
funds. The cost of the t np depends 
on the distance, and therefore, 
ranges from $50 for the Philadel- 
phia mission to .$854 for mis- 
sion in Mexico. Collections are 
taken up during University 
Masses to purchase materials and

Career Fair '95: 
Arts majors need 
not apply 

It was with great optimism that students of every 
major flocked to the Career Fair Sept. 27. Many could 
be seen dressed up and carrying a stack of resumes in 
hopes of landing an interview with a prominent company. 
However, those high hopes fell once most students hit 
the door. 
"""" Villanova^tTniversity is known for' providing its 
students with a broad-based liberal arts background. One 
would never know this by glancing over the list of 
companies present at the Career Fair. Of course, 
opportunities were plentiful for finance and accounting 
majors, but choices were few for liberal arts or nursing 

In the printed program given out at the fair, 21 
companies were listed for accounting majors, 17 for 
finance. Nursing and education majors were offered just 
one company apiece. 

We understood the hirmg practices of accounting 
firms and financial busmesses are different from liberal 
arts fields. Accounting firms actively recruit on college 
campuses for their training programs. However, fields 
such as communications or psychology are more likely 
to hire when they have specific job openings. As a result, 
students with these interests are left to fend for 
themselves in the job market. 

We suggest that the University further use its alumni 
resources to help these students. For example, interested 
students could be given a list of alumni in their field whom 
they could contact for advice or job leads. Or a program 
could be implemented that would allow a student to spend 
a day with an alumnus at the workplace. 

These are just suggestions, however, we do think 
something needs to be done for students in majors other 
than business. The needs exists for networking, for all 
majors, not just business majors. 


WXVU transmits response 

To the Editor: 

Thank you for alerting the 
campus to our impending survey 
in your editorial of Sept. 29. 
However, there were some in 
accuracies about WXUV in your 

First of all. you stated that "We 
were not given a copy of the 
survey." No one has been given 
a copy of the survey. When we 
begin to distribute it in the up 
coming weeks, rest assured that 
we will leave a copy at your office. 

The Villanovan also pointed 
out that they cannot pick up the 
station even though they are 
directly down the hall from our 
studio. The executive board of 
WXVU IS painfully aware of this 
problem. We are planning to 
install a new transmitter on 
campus m the future. I cannot say 
exactly when, since a new trans- 
mitter will cost a lot of money, 
not only more money than we 
receive in our annual budget, but 
more money than the avcragf 
American makes in a year. 

The Villanova also charges that 
our programming is homogenous. 
This semester we have made 
great leaps in diversifying pro- 
gramming. We have techno, jazz, 
world beat, hip hop, house, metal 
and blues shows. While there are 
playlist requirements for non 
specialty disc jockeys (seven soogs 
per hour from a group of 33 
bands), after those songs are 
played, the DJ is free to spin 
whatever he or she pleases. If they 
choose to play more popular 
music, no one is stopping them. 

We will not deny that our 
format is college alternative. Our 
bylaws commit us to playing 
cuttingedge and independent 
music While it may not be popular 
today, the groups seen on the 
WXVU Top ten today will often 
be played on WI)RF. next 

In addition to the music, WXVU 
also broadcasts news, talk and 
sjx)rts shows. How better to serve 
the community than through 
"319," a call in talk show dedi 
cated t'xclusivfiy to Villanova 


As for community outreach, I 
found it interesting that your 
editorial appeared the day after a 
WXVU-sponsored benefit concert 
in the Belle Aire Terrace. And 
believe it or not, other DJs besides 
Joe Lopez spin at our side events. 

We are making more and more 
attempts to publicize our station 
on campus. After all, your pajx'r 
printed our fall programming 
guide the same day this editorial

Judicial system should not overstep its bounds 


WASHINGTON - So exasper 
aled is Nebraska's Attorney 
General Don Stenberg, with 
judges who legislate, he is auda 
( lously asking the .Supreme Court 
to breathe life intoa rarely mvoked 
clause of the Constitution. Other 
wise, he says, self-government 
will l)e a mcxkery in his state, and 
alK)ut 1,30 murderers will have to 
Ix" retired or released. However, 
if the Supreme Court does what 
Stent)erg wants, the result may 
tx' more of what he rightly de 
plores — judges rampant, merrily 

In I9H(i Ronald Williams had an 
argument with F.ric Holmes. Wil 
hams shot and killed Holmes, who 
was unarmed The jury convicted 
him of second degree murder 

In a reform of the criminal code 
that t^'came effective in januarv 
1979, Nebraska's legislature delib 
erately removed 'malice" as an 
eUment of the crime of second 
degree murder . Hut in a 1994 
apiK'al of a second degree murder 
convKtion, the court simply as 

serted that malice must be a 
component of that crime. The 
court reasoned that otherwise 
there would be no grounds for 
distinguishing between second 
degree murder and manslaughter 
However, Nebraska's reformed 
criminal code makes clear that t he 
difference concerns intent 

Before 1979 the crime was 
defined this way; "Whosoever 
shall purposely and maliciously, 
but without deliberation and 
premeditation, kill another, every 
such person shall be deemed 
guilty of murder in the second 
degree" In 1979 the definition 
became this: "A person (ommits 
murder in the second degree if he 
I auses the death of a p<'rson 
intentionally but without 

The court disregarded the legis 
lature's clear and (onsidered 
pidgment, ruling that juries must 
Ix' instruct<'d that malice must Ix" 
an element of second degriM' 
murder Unless the U.S. Supreme 
COurt overturns the state court, 
Williams and about I'M) other 
killers, some of whom pleaded 

guilty, must be released or retired. 
Never mind the staleness or 
unavailability of old evidence, or 
the pain to the families of victims. 

Stenberg says this ruling is not 
merely cruel, and reckless regard 
ing public safety, it also shreds the 
doctrine of the separation of 
^x)wers. That is a cardinal tenet 
of republican government, under 
which people are governed by 
laws written by their elected 

Nebraska's judges usurped the 
legislation's power to define 
crimes. Stenberg wants the ruling 
declared a violation of the U.S. 
Constitution's Guarantee Clause, 
on which there is almost no case 
law It says: "The United States 
shall guarantiee to every state in 
this union a republican form of 

The judges c)n Nebraska's high 
est court have simply rewritten 
a statute. This in spite of the fac t 
that the state constitution says 
"in this state all public offenses 
-ire statutory; no act is criminal 
unless the legislature has in 
express terms declared it to be 

so," and Nebraska's supreme 
court has hitherto held that "it 
is not within the powers of the 
judicial branch. . . to enact laws or 
to define or punish crime." 

Stenberg believes the state has 
no recourse other than to the US 
Supreme Court because the legis 
lature "cannot re-repeal the ele 
ment of malice from its definition 
of the crime of second degree 
murder. From the standpoint of 
the legislature, it is gone. Here its 
absence is simply being ignored by 
the judicial branch of state 

Hut can the U.S. Supreme 
Court, with its itch to legislate, 
risk equating that activity with 
a violation of republican princ i 
pies? And imagine how judicial 
activists on that court might 
abuse the guarantee of "a repuh 
luan form of government." Con 
sider what |x'opl(> regularly do 
with \bf definition of 
"demcK racy" 

In his book, .V// Rulr A Lullural 
History of American Ihntoirary, 
Robert H Wiebe, professor of 
history at Northwestern, notes 

the tendency of intellectuals to 
define democracy less m terms of 
procedures, such as elections, 
than in terms of outcomes. As a 
result, "the subject of democracy 
comes to resemble a great pile of 
everybody's pet concerns." Demo- 
cracy is defined as a political 
prcKess that produces policies 
favored by the person doing the 

Arm judicial activists with the 
(iuarantee Clause, and you will 
have judges using that sword to 
cut down state policies they 
dislike or to mandate those they 
do, saying things like, "There is 
only real republican government 
when there is (fill in the blank: 
no c apital punishment , an entitle- 
ment to welfare, no large disparity 
of wealth, etc.)." 

Absent such problematic relief 
as might be wrung from the 
Guarantee Clause, what can Ne-

English as an official language will benefit all 


Associate Editor 

It's something most of us here 
at Villanova don't really think 
alxjut, that is why I'm bringing 
It up. Inother partsof the country, 
however, the issue of language 
presents a real problem for not 
only immigrants who do not speak 
English, but also for Americans 
who s peak only English. 

According to data published by 
the U.S. Census Bureau, in 1990 
there were 6.7 million Americans 
who did not speak English living 
in this country. A majority of 
these people live in the Southwest, 
south Florida and New York. 

Because of these high numbers, 
some politicians and interest 
groups are pushing for English- 
only legislation, sighting national 
unity as a goal. The propcwed laws 
range from the highly unnotice- 
able to the banishment of bilingual 
education and bilingual ballots. 

Send me back five years, and 
I would have been on the extremist 
English-orUy side of that fence. 
Now it's different. 

As a native of the Miami area, 
I have experienced first hand the 
conflicts that the language barrier 
can bring about. As a freshman 
in high school, I was in the 
overwnelming minority of non 
Spanish speakers. At the time, 1 
remember thinking how much I 
hated Miami, mainly because I 
didn't feel 1 fit in. 

I remember always standing 
with a group of jx'ople that would 
break into Spanish dialogue and 
laugh incessantly. I felt like an 
cjutsider, I couldn't understand. 
The Hispanic culture seemed so 
different from my own. 

Flash ahead four quick years to 
my freshman year at Villanova. 
For me it was the beginning of a 
lot of things, but it was also the 
end of my expf>sure to any type 
of alternative culture. Suddenly, 

I was in the world where everyone 
was- like myself, at least on the 
outside. White, middle-class ca 
t holies dominated. I thought I 
would like it that way. I thought 
my life would somehow change in 
that regard. It did not. 

I missed Miami and everything 
that came with it. I missed the 
diversity that is an inherent i>art 
of living in a city that's often put 
down for it's crime and drug

Clarence Thomas: Four years later 


The Supreme Court opened its 
1995-% term on Monday. This 
week also marks the fourth an- 
niversary of the confirmation of 
Justice Clarence Thomas. 

At the time of the Anita Hill 
hearings, conservative supporters 
grieved that his image would be 
irreparably harmed by the embar- 
rassing accusations. However, 
Justice Thomas not only survived 
the national scrutiny, but he 
triumphed over it. 

With steadfast conviction and 
jjersonal integrity, he took on his 
accusers, painting the hearings as 
"a high-tech lynching." It was a 
failed lynching, though, as Tho- 
mas emerged alive and well. 
Nevertheless, he had to endure the 
continuing charges of Uncle 
Tomism. He was painted as a 
person who had "sold out" to the 
white elite in return for personal 

Thomas shattered these stereo- 
typical conceptions, but more 
importantly, he proved he was 
proficient in judicial matters 
(which, after all, is his job). After 
remaining relatively quiet for the 
first three years, Thomas has 
emerged as one of the strongest 
and most eloquent voices of the 
high court. Thomas had promised 
he would maintain a hushed voice 
until he thoroughly understood 
the workings of the Supreme 
Court. This quiet determination 
and astute reverence for the 
power of the court led some 
Republicans, most notably Nancy 
Kassenbaum of Kansas, to term 
his a "disappointment." 

But Thomas, as unfettered by 
criticism now as he was four years 
ago, has begun to earn his rightful 

He refuses to give public inter- 
views, but often visits with young 
children, many of whom are 
desperate for role models who 
possess the work ethic and char- 
acter he represents. One 10-year 
old girl asked him if he ever 
thought about giving up. 

"A thousand times a day," he 
replied. "[But) I prefer to die 
standing up than quit. Quitting, 
in my view, is a form of suicide." 
He could easily have quit four 
years ago, but believed his jxiten 
tial service on the court far 
outweighed any personal harm he 
might have to endure. 

Thomas' judicial approach is 
distinguished by a keen intellec- 
tualism tempered by a meticulous 
dissection of history He is un 
afraid to make references to the 
founding fathers or to such dcx- 

• I I r.t fc ; I I » I I • II '.'l; 

uments as the Federalist Papers. 
But most importantly, he is wil- 
ling to lend his powerful voice to 
issues that other conservative 
justice prefer to soft-pedal. 

While others on the bench 
qualify their qualifiers, Justice 
Thomas explains issues as clearly 
as possible. Believing that true 
justice is unambiguous, he insures 
that observers do not have to 
interpret his interpretations. 

His confident approach stems 
from a conscientious fidelity to 
the freedom and justice elucidated 
in the Constitution. He believes 
that people, not over-active justi- 

ces, should determine their future: 
"Government cannot make us 
equal; it can only recognize, 
respect and protect us as equal 
before the law." He is unabashedly 
a strict-constructionist, which, in 
turn, defines him as pro-life, pro- 
liberty and pro-property. 

Clarence Thomas is still in the 
infant stages of his tenure on the 
Supreme Court. If he continues to 
be an active voice, he will quickly 
become the judicial superstar of 
this nation. The man who was 
once likened to "road kill" could 
emerge as the justice that leads 
the court into the next century. 

Jiggling the handle 


Staff Columnist 

When I first came to college 
more than three years ago, I knew 
that I had to find something, big 
or small, to assure me that I had 
made the right collie choice. I 
found it at my very first cafeteria 
meal, and it was huge. No, it was 
not the kettle of unlimited cheese 
whiz, it was Mountain Dew on 

"The nectar of the gods," I said 
to myself as I grabbed six or seven 
of those all-too-familiar blue caps 
and b^an drinking that beautiful, 
urine-colored liquid. At that point 
in my young life I drank Mountain 
Dew strictly for taste. I knew it 
had caffeine in it, but I wasn't 
totally aware of what this soda 
was possibly capable of. 

Aside from coffee. Mountain 
Dew is without question the most 
popular caffeinated beverage in 
the world. People drink coffee for 
caffeine, but probably because 
they don't know the powers of 
Dew. Forty-six grams of sugar per 
serving is what makes Dew dif- 
ferent. All of that sugar plus 
enough caffeine to kill a cat make 
Mt. Dew the ultimate studying 

Freshman year, I drank, sorry, 
slammed Dew for every lunch and 
dinner (I never got up for break 
fast) for eight months. By March, 
my friends forced me to give it up 
for I^nt. And I did. I quit Dew 
until sophomore year when I fell 
off the wagon. Then one morning 
before an exam first semester, I 
found my.self with a cup of coffee 
and a glass of Mt. Dew in front 
of me on my tray. 

To be a good student one must 
study, and to study a lot, one must 
stay up late. Many people will tell 
you you need sleep to function, but 

with caffeine, that theory gets 
quickly thrown out the window. 
Caffeine is what gives the student 
livelihood, faith that the exam will 
not be so bad, even as they watch 
the sun come up although not 
even through chapter one. 

By my junior year I switched 
to coffee, knowing my heart could 
not handle the years of abuse it 
had been under with my addiction 
to Dew. It just doesn't make you 


hyperactive like a good liter of Mt. 
Dew does, thus allowing for more 
work to actually be done. I also 
do not recommend pills as a 
caffeine source, (Vivarin, No-Doz. 

There are also people who do 
not need caffeine, and just natu 
rally adapt to the "post-Letterman 
.hours." Call them vampires, call 
them children of the night, but 
also pat them on the back, because 
they do not have to experience the 
Dew hangovers, or coffee crashes, 
which are commonplace for caf 
feine users. These are the kind of 
Zombie walks from classroom to 
bed following that last final, or 
after handing in the term paper. 

I have not done any serious 
studying yet this semester so I do 
not know what form my caffeine 
will take, but I think I might have 
to go back to old faithful Mt. Dew. 

from my mistakes and coming to 
Villanova has given me a growing 
appreciation of diversity. By that 
I mean diversity in action, not the 
so-called diversity that we might 
encounter here. I mean people 
doing the things they know in the 
natural course of their lives. 

Laws that would put a strangle 
hold on culture are definitely a no- 
no in my mind. And that includes 
any laws designed to stop the 
normal expression of one's cul- 
ture, including language, for the 
sake of so-called American unity. 

Fine, streamline official U.S. 
documents in English. A uniform 

language makes communication 
easier, it's convenient. But, end 
bilingual education?* In my opin- 
ion, that's the very fabric of life 
in America. Must we constantly 
be be reminded that we also came 
from other [)arts of the world 
somewhere along the line? 

We need to meet non-P^nglish 
sjH'akers half way. I want bilin- 
gual education, 1 think it's bene- 
ficial. I also want non English 
speakers to learn English. We can 
close the gap on both sides. It's 
not inijjossible. 

As Americans, we all share 
freedom. Isn't that enough? 

Pretty in Punk

Stuff Columnist 

You could have knocked me 
over with a wet ncxxlle when I read 
this Sunday's Philadelphia In 
quirer. On the front page, com 
plete with a picture of an X- 
adorned youth, was an article 
about straight edge (also called 
sXe), a punk movement which 
eschews drinking, drugs, casual 
sex and smoking. Being a sXe 
myself, I could not figure out why 
the Inquirer chose to do a news 
story on a movement that has 
existed for the past 14 years. It 
may have been news when it first 
began, but by now, sXers are 
commonsights all over the country 
— and yes, even on Villanova's 
campus (though there are only 
about six of us). However, after 
I read the article and noticed its 
emphasis on the appearance (that 
strange hair! those body piercings! 
those tatoos!) of those in the scene, 
I realized that it was just another 
attempt by the media to cash in 
on this new "punk" wave. 

Punk music has been around on 
this planet for longer than I have 
(the Ramones gave their first 
performance before I was born), 
and it has never made headlines 
the way it is now. Some would 
argue that punk deserves all this 
attention. After all, three-chord 
songsters Green Day ruled the 
Billboard charts and the airwaves 
in 1995. Offspring went platinum 
with an album released on the 
independent label Epitaph. Doc 
Martens are now being sold in 
shopping malls. Even car compan 
ies are using the term "punk 
rock" to entice people to buy 
automobiles. It appears that once 
punk turned a profit, it gained a 
credibility in the outside world. 

As a self-described punk, 1 
cannot say that I enjoy the recent 
surge of publicity surrounding my 
lifestyle. Why would anyone like 
a distortion of what they value? 
The Spin magazine cover touting 
Rancid as punk has got it all 
wrong. In fact, most of the media 
has punk all wrong. They equate 
a person like me with Green Day, 
with combat boots and fast music 
and rebellion. To them, punk is 
another hot trend for the teeny 
hoppers to enjoy, another Rolling 
Stone or Sassy cover, another 
phase your child is going through. 
Well, they couldn't be more 

Punk is not about fashion. No 
one cares how many colors are in 
your hair, or how long your wallet 
chain is, or what bcKly parts you 
have pierced. It is not about 
music. Punk may have started 
with music, but now it is a genre 
that encompasses everything from 
simple three chord rcxk to surf 
music to complex guitar lines to 
screaming teenage vcnals. And 
just Ixvause you play i)unk music, 
that doesn't mean you are a punk. 

It is not about what shows you 
go to or what albums you buy or 
which member of Jawbreaker you 
met. Punk is something that the 
media cannot hope to comprehend. 
It is an attitude, a feeling and a 
way of life. Punk will nt end when 
the current craze for it is gone. 
It will continue with the people 
who have been there since the 
lx*ginning. And I, for one, hope the 
trend will move forth. 

Stories about punk always 
mention rebellion. However, they 
do not mention what punks are 
rebelling against. It is not about 
shocking mom and dad with a new 
hair color. On a grander scale, it 
is about changing the suburban 
world many of us grew up in. 
Punk questions the values and 
morals that were taught to us, and 
allows us to create a new set of 
ethics to reflect what is important 
in a world outside of the white- 
picket fence realm. 

Our rebellion can range from 
serious political protest, to form- 
ing a band and singing songs 
about how you could not get a date 
in high school. The rebellion relies 
heavily on the DIV (do it yourself) 
ethic. Rather than whine about 
how society does not fulfill c^ur 
needs, we have decided to fill them 
ourselves. We form our own 
bands, make our own t-shirts, 
print our own reading material, 
press our own records, b<x)k our 
own all-ages shows and give each 
other food to eat and places to 
sleep. We do not hold jobs to make 
a comfortable living, but rather to 
finance our music or our magazine 
or our collectives. 

How can I explain the joy that 
punk brings? I produce my own 
magazine about punk rcxk. It 
takes me countless hours to write, 
edit and lay out an issue. I lose 
money every time I publish. Yet 
I keep doing it to the point where 
I have a job to keep up with its It is worth it to have 
a punk in Tennessee or California 
or Sullivan Hall tell me they 
enjoyed reading it. 

Belle Air Terrace has been 
home to some punk shows I have 
b<x)ked. It is not much fun posting 
flyers for shows around campus, 
especially when people disparage 
the bands that you love. A half- 
hour before the show, I am hor 
ribly, wcjrrying if people will 
come to see the bands, if the bands 
will show up or if anyprofit will 
b<! made. However, my fears are 
allayed the moment I see that 
j)eople are smiling and dancing I 
get a real high when Villanovans, 
who have never heard this music 
tx^ore, tell me they really enjoy 
a band that has played. And when 
1 go to shows off campus, that 
liigh continues. 

So the next time you see Green 
Day bopping across your televi- 
sion screen, think not about the 
oh so-sassy Billie Jo<\ hut about 
the [X'ople who brought them lo 
where they are tcxi ay

Bosnian refugee seeks 
to rebuild a new life 


Asstslanl Features Editor 

For over three years, news 
program have fl(K)ded our Country 
with terms like "war-torn Bos 
nia," "Bosnian refugees" and 
"Bosnian prison camps." How 
many of us, however, have given 
much thought to the mass des- 
truction and devastation that has 
overwhelmed Bosnia since 1992? 
Although we hear about it every 
night on the news and see it every 
day in the paper, it is impossible 
for us to comprehend the irrevo- 
cable damage being done to Bosnia 
and those inhabiting it. 

The horrifying statistics are 
rapidly increasing. Since May 1, 
1992, the first day of the war in 
Bosnia, over 350,000 people have 
been killed and 60,000 women 
have been raped. Also, there are 
over 1.5 million refugees all over 
the world who are trying desper 
ately to rebuild their lives. 

We at Villanova are fortunate 
enough to have the extraordinary 
opportunity of knowing and at- 
tending school with a Bosnian 
student. Irvana Kapetanovic, a 
sophomore international business 
major from Prijedor, Bosnia, 
spoke of her experiences as a 
refugee on Sept. 27 in the St. 
Augustine Center. 

Sponsored by Dr. Barbara Wall 
and the Center for Peace and 
Justice, the evening began with a 
powerful introduction by Wall 
stating, "We need to overcome the 
ethnic strife that is going on and 
has gone on in the past." Accord- 
ing to Wall, the bottom line is that 
"people's lives have been 

Kapetanovic began her speech 
by reading an essay she wxote for 
an F.nglish class about the first 

day of the war. "Most of us didn't 
know what ws going on," said 
Kapetanovic. Although her family 
had f(xxl, the electricity and water 
was turned off in her town. "1 
realized that I was in a dangerous 
and uncomfortable situation," she 

Kapetanovic explained the psy- 
chological fear she experienced of 
being raped, killed or tortured. "I 
prayed to God that we would all 
wake up in the morning," she 

The war became progressively 
worse. Serbian soldiers rampaged 
her twon searching for Muslims. 
Her father was taken from his 
workplace and thrown into a 
concentration camp. The family 
has not seen or heard from him 
since that day. "He wasn't in 
volved in any political parties. His 
only mistake was that he was a 
Muslim and an intellectual," she 

Prijedor, Kapetanovic's home 
town, is entirely Serbian field. "1 
could go out, but it was scary," 
she said. [The Serbs] could come 
and kill me because there weren't 
any laws against killing Mus- 
lims," she added. 

Her mother sent Kapetanovic 
and her sister to Croatia, and 
remained in Bosnia hoping for her 
husband to come home. She left 
her whole life behind and took 
onlv the bare essentials she needed 
for the journey. Once in Croatia, 
she had trouble getting into a 
schof)l because she is a Muslim. 
However, an organization called 
the Jerrahi Order of America, 
which is dedicated to helping 
Bosnian refugees through a pro 
gram called The Bosnian Student 
I'roject, gave her an opportunity 
to finish sch(K)l in New York. 

Kapetanovic came to New York 

in Aj)ril of 1993 knowing very 
little Knglish, with the hopes of 
starting a new life. She stayed in 
a Muslim community with other 
refugees. Once she got settled 
there, she began to realize how far 
away she actually was from her 
r(X)ts. "None of us realize how 
hard it is to separate from your 
parents," she stated. "They were 
in my heart," she added, "whe- 
never I was sad I would think 
about them." 

Kapetanovic finished high 
schcMjl in New York and came to 
Villanova on a full scholarship in 
August 1993. "Coming |to Villan 
ova 1 1 wanted to be open and make 
more friends because I would be 
here for four years. 1 wanted to 
start a new life," she said. She 
wishes to use the knowledge and 
degree she earns at Villanova to 
help Bosnia rebuild after the war. 

This summer, she visited her 
mother and sister in Germany, 
where they are now living. It was 
the first time they saw each other 
in over two years. "It was like 
having a dream come true," she 

When Kapetanovic was asked 
what she liked and disliked about 
America, she replied, "I like 
America because I never felt like 
a foreigner here. People never 
laughed at me when 1 spoke. "Her 
dislikes about America center 
around American's ignorance 
about the war. "Most Americans 
don't even know where Bosnia 
is," she complained. 

She believes that Americans are 
misled about the war by the 
, media. "You would think that 
these people are coming from 
before civilization," she said. 
"We're not coming from the 
jungle; we're from a civilized part 
of the world."

On Saturday, Sept. 30, 1995, many Villanova students t(M)k part in the second 
annual Philadelphia Cares Day. The volunteers joined thousands of people working 
in [Philadelphia sch(K)lson projects such as painting murals and hallways, |)lantinK' 
flowers, and whitewashing graffiti. Participants were able to see first hand the 
challenges facing the city's schools and were able to see that, as the Philad<'lphia 
Cares organization's motto states, "in one day you can make a world of differnce." 

According to the organization, the primary goal of the day was to provide 
over ,"),()()() hours of coinmunity service in one day. Another was to promote the 
spirit of volunteerism and demonstrate the power of peojilc united in commtnutv

'Novans cruise among elite in exchange program 


SlaJJ lupoiUi 

Kathy Smith, a senior interna 
tional business major and Villa 
nova NKOTC battalion com 
mander, was one of four 
Americans selected for a Foreign 
Exchange Cruise (FOKEX) with 
the Australian navy. Senior geo- 
graphy major Hill Swick, the 
executive officer of Villanova's 
NROTC battalion, was one of four 
Americans selected for a FORKX 
cruise with the United Kingdom's 

The Navy conducts the FOREX 
program with both English and 
non English speaking countries in 
order to expose American naval 
personnel to foreign military 
practices. While all in the NROTC 
program must participate in a 
cruise the summer before their 
senior year, only those fluent in 
a foreign language may apply for 
a FOREX cruise in another coun- 
try. Assignment to Australia or 
the United Kingdom, as the only 
English-speaking countries in the 
FOREX program, presents the 
most competition. Those who 
choose not to apply for the FOREX 
assignment participate in a cruise 
on an American naval vessel. 

A request for consideration for 
a FOREX assingment involves an 
application process which in- 
cludes a recommendation from 
the captain and an essay. Smith 
and Swick are the first Villanova 
students to secure assignments to 
English-speaking countries, the 
most competitive FOREX 

Smith thought "it would be 
really interesting to go to another 
country to see how their military 
is treated. . .just because we've 
become so global." Her cruise 
lasted from June 14 to Aug. 1; 31 
days of which she spent in port 
and 20 days at sea. 

Smith spent the cruise on the 
HMAS TOBRUK. a ship primarily 
used for support tasks such as 
transporting personnel and tanks. 
In addition to the ship's workday, 
which lasted from 8 a.m. until 4 
p.m.. Smith performed watch and 
other duties so she would "eat and 
work, but sleep very little" while 
at sea. "You realize the routine 
of being on a ship," she said.

Smith also participated in Op- 
eratujii Awkward, the Royal Aus 
tralian Navy's preparation for 
Kanganx) '9S, the annual simu 
lated war exercises for Australia's 
navy. Operation Awkward sought 
to test the crew's readiness in an 
emergency to ensure that all grew 
accustomed to [X'rformance under 
such conditions. Throughout the 
cruise, emergency tests were 
conducted to reinforce emergency 

1 )uring part of the cruise, Smith 
rode in a helicopter with an 
American exchange pilot, whom 
she later talked with at an onboard 
cocktail party. Two days later, his 
helicopter crashed while perform- 
ing a medical evacuation from 
another ship. She and the other 
members of the crew felt the 
shock; "Then you start to realize 
that what you're doing is really 
serious," she said. As of now, 
Smith has received no official 
notice of the condition of the 
helicopter's crew or passengers. 

Swick's cruise lasted from June 
19 to July 25. He served on the 
HMS ARGYLL, an anti-submarine 
frigate. "It gave me an opportunity 
to compare the leadership styles 
of U.S. naval officers versus Royal 
Naval officers," he explained. 

The ARGYLL'S work schedule 
began at 7:30 a.m. with a tea-and- 
cookies break from 10:30 a.m. to 
11 a.m.; the workday ended at 4 
p.m. Swick also had to stand 
bridge watch. The ARGYLL was 
preparing for Basic On-Sea Trials 
(BOST), which Swick described in 
his post-training report as "an 
intense period in which Royal 
Navy ships undergo testing and 
drills to rate the fighting capabil- 
ities of each ship and her crew." 
They also participated in a 
"weekly war'" in which "we 
tested our skills against other 
Royal Navy ships, aircraft and 
submarines, both real and 

Both Swick and Smith found 
their FOREX experiences useful 
in familiarizing them with differ- 
ent military organizational and 
leadership styles. "You get an 
appreciation for a foreign navy," 
said Smith.

Two Villanova NROTC students were selected for a FOREX cruise to an English-speaking country 
this summer. 

Student takes "bar exam" 
at home and abroad 


I spent last semester in Sevilla, 
Spain. It is said that the bars are 
better there, which tempted me to 
write an article to prove that 
theory. But, to be fair, I thought 
I would objectively examine them. 
First let us analyze a typical 
Wednesday night. 

We will start in Spain. In the 
early evening people go "tapa 
hopping," a concept similar to bar 
hopping. (A tapa is a small hors 
d'oeuvre.) We would sp>end an 
hour or so hanging out before we 
went home for dinner. This time 
we would use to study for tests 
or do group projects, if necessary. 

At around 9 p.m. we headed 
home for dinner. Between 10:30 
and 11 p.m. we would meet again, 
and the rest of the evening con- 
sisted of bar hopping until closing. 
After departing, I would often stop 
for a cup of coffee alone at the 
corner bar. 

Now let us take the same night 
at Villanova. 

It is Wednesday night, and 
many upperclassmen feel the urge 
to go out. The bars are calling out 
to them with their favorite sp)e- 
cials, which have to be taken 
advantage of before midnight. 
One usually decides between the 
specials at Smokes and Gators, 
and heads out with a group of 
friends. The general consensus is 
that everyone will meet at Kelly's 
for late night, where those who 
had intended to get drunk have 
already accomplished their goal. 

Beyond those two scenarios, 
there are even more differences. 
Let's take happy hour. The fact 
that there is a time limit on the 
special prices implies an urgency 
to take full advantage while it is 
still possible, and encourages 
people to drink more quickly. 

In Spain, however, there is no 
time limit. In the same way that 
there is pressure to drink quickly 
here, there exists a pressure there 
to make it through an entire 
evening without losing control, 
getting sick, or going home. I can 
remember many nights when the 
clock struck 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. and 
one of my American friends was 
ready to call it a night. Since their 
nights last much longer, our 
Spanish friends were always 
surprised and a little offended, as 
if it were a personal affront to 

This issue of age is a key factor 
separating the two nations' drink- 
ing habits. In Spain, the drinking 
age is 16, and there are generally 
no problems with anyone getting 
in to a bar if they so choose. 
Turning 21 is a big event in the 
life of most American college 
students. Don Beatty, who was a 
bouncer at the Jersey Shore this 
summer, said, "It's funny to see 
people who have gotten into the 
bars all summer finally come to 
in to celebrate their 21 St." He said 
they usually laugh at their success 
when he confronts them. Senior 
Tracy Barthen said, "turning 21 
is a rite of passage because you 
can fmally go in and smile at the 

bouncers as you show them your 
seven forms of real l.D." 

Unfortunately, whether in a 
Spanish bar or an American bar, 
one may still have the feeling of 
being in a "meat market." Student 
Mark Tierney commented that 
American bars are where "cows 
and bulls get together and sling 
some dung." Honestly, I found 
Spanish men to be more forward 
and persistent. Nonetheless, bars 
are where people come together, 
socialize and try to hook up, and 
there's no escaping that. 

Someone is always bound to get 
out of control when there is 
alcohol involved. It would not be 
honest to say that because the 
Spaniards have been legally drink- 
ing longer, that they know their 
limits any better. 

Senior Ken Hill is a bartender 
at Kelly's. He admits that some- 
times when people are out of 
control and insist in ordering 
more shots, "I'll give them a shot 
of coke, and they think it's Jager- 
meister." Another bartender 
agrees, "The idea is to resolve 
conflicts before they start. I'll give 
them a shot of water if I have to, 
and tell them it's on the house." 
One bartender who asked to 
remain anonymous said, "It's an 
oxymoron because you want to 
make people happy because they'll 
tip you more, and so it's in your 
best interest to make people 
drunk. Yet, if they get sick, I'm 
the one who has to clean it up. 
Friend or not, the mess l(X)ks the 
same on the fl(X)r."

Morrissey's Grammar shows improvement 


Entertainment Editor 

Someone once said, "1 don't 
know art, but 1 know what 1 
like. " I forget who it was because 
I'm too drugged up on cold med 
icine to remember or to care but 
the point is, this little phrase of 
self proclamied ignorance reminds 
me of my relationship with Mor 
rissey. I don't know every song or 
every thing that Morrissey has 
ever done so it's probably fair to 
say that I don't know Morrissey 
but I know what I like. 1 like 
Southpaw (irummar. 

As was alluded to previously, 1 
am ill. Life is a drag when you 
are ill. Life is gloomy when you 
are ill. Life is lonely when you are 
ill (no one wants to come near 
someone who might spew a lung 
on them). What better time then. 

to listen to Morrissey''' I figured, 
why not kick myself while I'm 
down^ Like 1 said, 1 am no expert 
on Morrissey, but it d(X's not take 
a high paid music critic to realize 
that for the most part Morrissey 
is something of a miserable fellow. 
Hence, I thought giving his latest 
release, Southpaw Grammar, a 
listen would serve to enhance the 
fine moods I had Ix'en finding 
myself in. What I found, to my 
surprise, was not the Morrissey 
I was used to. Granted, the themes 
were the same: depression, 
jealousy, a general aura of dour 
ness, but there was clearly some- 
thing more in the music, some- 
thing that smacked faintly of 

Southpaw is composed of only 
eight songs. Six simultaneously 
glum and rollicking vignettes 
flanked on both ends by two 
thoroughly engrossing novellas. 

The first of these, the 1 1 minute, 
15-second "The Teachers are 
Afraid of the Students begins 
with an eerie orchestral repetition 
that suddenly breaks off into 
gritty guitar noise. Equally sur- 
prising is the two minute drum 
solo that preceeds what I consider 
to Ix" the best track on the album, 
"The Operation." A fantastically 
souped up version of the old ex 
lover theme. 

The bolder newer sound that 
can be found on Southpaw might 
be attributable to the way in 
which it was created. Morrissey 
brought together the talents of 
pnxlucer Steve Lilywhite and co- 
writers and guitarists Boz Boorer 
and Alain Whyle. While a group 
effort seems the antithesis of 
Morrissey's post-Smiths mental- 
ity, it seems like it might be just 
the thing his sound has been 
searching for for years but never 

One Hot Minute shows less 
spicy Chili Peppers 


Statt Reporter 

It is safe to say that The Red 
Hot J hill Peppers have Ix'en 
taking pointers from their new 
pal, Tony Bennett. After all, why 
else would they resort to singing 
their same old songs? 

With the highly anticipated 
release of One Hot Minute, An- 
thony Kiedis, Flea, Dave Navarro 
and Chad Smith continue in the 
funky, psychedelic, rockin' tradi- 
tion that caused their break- 
through with Mother's Milk. How- 
ever, One Hot Minute manages to 
fall short of expectations, lacking 
the fresh, humor-laced bite that 
used to dominate their sound. The 
album, which follows the band's 
immensely successful, BloodSu- 
frarSexMagic, is too familiar and, 
at times, downright predictable. 

Because Kiedis' voice cannot 
garner much character, even the 
seemingly interesting use of the 
spoken word on "Deep Kick" and 
the Dramamine warranted, flut 
tering meUxiy in "Coffee Shop" 
come across as experimental, if 
not annoying, upon delivery. Of 
course, such tracks would not be 
as difficult to swallow had the 

majority of the album been a 
valiant attempt at something 
new. Unfortunately, zippy ballads, 
such as the first single, "My 
Friends" ("Under The Bridge Part 

Two") and, "Tearjerker" occupy 
most of the album's space. Still, 
there is enough room left over to 
be filled by cleverly calculated 
shock value in the form of four 
U'tter words that appear in hopes 
of being some sort of substance 

or philosophical statement. 

Yet, this is not to say that One 
Hot Minute is not catchy or is 
unbearable listening. Not at all. 
In fact, unlike most bands of the 
day, The Red Hot Chili Peppers 
maintain their status as being 
anything but drone and boring. 
For example, the refrain of "Aero- 
plane" — "... I like pleasure/ 
spiked with pain/ music is my 
aeroplane... ", will, more than 
likely, be sure to stick in your head 
forever. Listeners will also prob- 
ably find themselves singing 
along to the infectious guest 
chants of Gurmukh Kaur Khals 
on "Falling Into Grace" and 
laughing out loud to "Pea," a 
track sung by Flea. 

However, all in all, it is obvious 
that producer. Rick Rubin let 
something truly special slip away. 
After all, how many times can a 
listener be' expected to be sur- 
prised and entertained by tempo 
changes in the middle of songs? 
No doubt though, despite its many 
shortcomings. The Red Hot Chili 
Peppers will enjoy huge commer 
cial success with this one. The 
truth is, fans do not care if One 
Hot Minute is completely mild 
and, well, frankly. . . not so hot.

Daou hypnotizes 
with Z'ipless 


Staff Reporter 

^ i 1 j^ or me, the intention of the 
A/ album is to explore all 
kinds of erotic, emotional and 
music possibilities," says Vanessa 
Daou of her solo debut, Ziptess. 
Indeed she does, with her haunt- 
ing vocals and distinct style that 
is sure to captivate every kind of 
listener. What makes this album 
so unique is the way she incor- 
porates pulsating jazz with hyp- 
notic rhythm and sensual poetry. 
Born and raised in the U.S. 
Virgin Islands, Vanessa Daou's 
music reflects a simple, hassle- 
free existence that she attributes 
to her dreams of swimming and 
breathing underwater. At Barnard 
College in New York, where she 
majored in art and aesthetics, she 
was writing and reading her own 
poetry. It was during this period 
that she discovered and became 
inspired by the poetry of Erica 
Jong. In fact, the 10 tracks on 
Zipless are taken from a compila 
tion of Jong's poems titled 'Becom 
ing Light.' The last track, titled 
"Smoke" features the poet herself 
reading aloud. 

Although the album comes with 
an explicit lyrics warning, it is for 
the raw, pure nature of poetic 
description and not for blatant 
profanity. "I wanted the sexy, 
brooding feeling. Everybody 
knows that feeling," claims Va- 
nessa. After listening to the first 
track, "The Long Tunnel Of 
Wanting You," one is hooked. "I 
wanted the kind of delivery that 
would stand a lot of listening," she 
says. The power of the words and 
the intensity of the music leaves 
one's mind and body wanting to 
hear more, wanting to feel more. 
You stay and soon any inhibition 
disappears as you listen to "Dear 
Anne Sexton," repetitious but 
soothing, "Sunday Afternoons," 
about bittersweet obsession, "Al- 
cestis on the Poetry Circuit," a 
dark observation of how women 
oppress themselves and "My Love 
Is Too Much," which breaks 
sexuality down to its simplest 
form and four other self- 
interpretive pieces that manage to 
sound upbeat, yet unhurried. 

It has been said that Daou's 
voice and music are effortless, 
that they affect like a drug, but 
without the substance.

The Hip Hop Theatre Playbill: Joe's rebuttal 


Staff Reporter 

Before we get down to busi- 
ness, 1 would like to respond 
to last week's editorial about 
WXVIJ. First of all, the problem 
about the music not being diverse 
needs to be reconsidered. Techni- 
cally, the word 'alternative' means 
something different, anything 
that does not coincide with the 
norm. Therefore, Hip Hop Thea 
tre, the world music show, the 
techno show, the punk show, the 
jazz show and the blues show are 
all 'alternative' shows by defini- 
tion. As a station, our main 
concern is to supply the listeners 
with a broad variety of music that 
cannot be found on your everyday 
radio station. That is why you will 
not catch me playing Coolio's new 
song or Biggie Smalls 20 times in 
a row. If we wanted to please the 
majority of listeners on this 

campus, we would have to con 
form to the formats of stations 
such as Power 99, YlOO, or prob 
ably the most appropriate for 
Villanovans, WDRE. Our main 
objective as a station is to be 
diverse, and if you look at the 
schedule of our shows, it is evident 
that we are extremely diverse, 
probably the only diverse entity 
on this campus. 

As far as the signal is concerned, 
that is a problem we have been 
working on since I have been here, 
which is about three years. It is 
an extremely expensive process 
which was postponed last year in 
order to improve the AM signal 
for future DJ's. However, this 
action was overlooked by the 
writer of last week's editorial. It 
is not as if we could improve the 
signal overnight. Although it 
would be convenient, it is just not 
that easy. 

Anyway, no hard feelings be- 

tween the paper and the station, 
but it is time to get down to the 
business of that wonderful art 
fom and culture we call 'Hip 
Hop.' Kool G. Rap — 456 is 
definitely the album of the week. 
If you like that hustler, criminol 
ogy type rap music, this is a must 
for your collection. Shame on you 
if you are not familiar with G. 
Kap, but he is undeniably the 
creator of the ill lyrical visualism 
that is present in artists like Nas, 
AZ, Mobb Deep, B.I.G. and most 
recently, Raekwon. Songs like 
"Money on my Brain," "Execu- 
tioner Style," "Take 'em to War," 
"For the Brothas' " and "Fast 
Life," featuring Nas, all add up 
to create a delicious sugar cookie 
with an extra large glass of 
chocolate milk. Also, be on the 
lookout for some new Fat Joe stuff 
due out soon; I've heard about six 
cuts, and they're all extra hot. 
Lastly, listen to the theatre for a 

new KRS & Channel Live song more time counting how many 

called "Free Mumia," an ex times Snoop Doggy Dogg curses 

tremely phat song dealing with rather than doing something 

politicians like Jesse Jackson and really beneficial like freeing Mu- 

C. Delores Tucker who spend "na Sellouts! 


Cultural Film Series: presents 
Wide Sargasso Sea 


Staff Reporter 

Sexual obsession and the ad- 
vent of colonialism in Jamaica 
are the themes of director John 
Duigan's film adaptation of Jean 
Rhys' 1960 novel Wide Sargasso 
Sea. Both the movie and book are 
designed as "prequels" to Char- 
lotte Bronte's novel Jane Eyre, and 
the subsequent film version. 

Wide Sarffisso Sea centers on 
the insane Mrs. Antoinette Ro- 
chester who is locked in the attic 
in Jane Eyre. Rhys, in his novel, 
hypothesizes a possible scenario 
of the events leading to her 

The film opens on the Coulibri 
plantation, which has d^enerated 
since the abolition of slavery. It 
has become a blight in the lush 
Jamaican landscape. The estate is 
owned by Annette Cosway (Rachel 
Ward) and controlled by her elitist 
English husband, Paul Mason 
(Michael York). Mason is the 
archetype of British colonialism 
racist believing wholly in the 
inviolability of English culture 
wherever it exists. The natives, 
however, live with the mystical 
passions of their own traditions 
and revolt, burning the mansion 
to the ground and fatally injuring 
Annette's son. Following her son's 
death, Annette falls into despair 
and madness, causing Mason to 
return to Flngland and send her 
daughter Antoinette (Karina I^m 

bard) into a convent. 

The story resumes years later 
as Antoinette has reached adult 
hood. Mason has died leaving the 
estate to Antoinette on the con- 
dition that she adhere to a pre- 
arranged marriage to Edward 
Rochester (Nathanial Parker). 
Rochester, like Mason, is the 
epitome of English culture, while 
Antoinette is filled with the raw 
eroticism of the Jamaican people. 
Rochester is immediately over- 

whelmed by the heat and primal 
sensuality of the tropics, in direct 
contrast to the cold and rain of 
England. Even in a land so foreign 
to him Rochester's gender and 
cultural dominance over his wife 
is apparent. By law, anything 
which Antoinette owns becomes 
the property of her new husband 
because he is male. Antoinette 
tells the first part of her story, but 
with the arrival of Rochester in 
the second half, even the narrative 
voice becomes subjugated. 

At first their relationship is 
based entirely on the desire gener 
ated by Antoinette's sexual awak 
ening. However, trust soon erodes 

and their personalities drift even 
further apart. Rochester begins to 
favor his British tendencies while 
Antoinette descends into the same 
alcohol induced insanity that 
claimed her mother. He becomes 
loathsome and malicious, leaving 
Antoinette without warning to 
spend time with his English peers. 
Eventually, Rochester has an 
affair with a seductive slave. 
Ironically, at the time, he is under 
the influence of an aphrodisiac 
given to him by Antoinette with 
the hope of regaining his love. 

Ultimately, Antoinette is re- 
duced to no more than what her 
mother had become. Rochester's 
misogynistic treatment of An- 
toinette represents the prevailing 
colonial attitudes toward women 
by English men, and the domi 
nance of their culture over Jamai 
can traditions. In his final step 
toward removing everything that 
Antoinette values, Rochester 
takes her to England, places her 
under the watchful eye of a 
caretaker and abandons her to the 
attic of his mansion. The film 
ends dramatically with Antoinette 
setting fire to the house and 
dancing freely in silhouette across 
the burning roof. 

Please join us as the Cultural 
Film Series presents "Wide Sar 
gasso Sea" on Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. 
The speaker will be Antoinette 
Burton with her discussion en- 
titled "The Empire Strikes Back: 
'Wide Sargasso Sea' responds to 
'Jane Eyre.' " 

Dirges prepare 
for Nova show 


Entertainment Editor 

On October 2.5, the Belle Air 
Nightclub will reverberate 
with the sound of an up and 
coming band called the Dirge.s. 
For some of you this name may 
sound familiar. The Dirges have 
opened up for acts like Rusted 
Root, Belly and the plaid wonders 
the Mighty, Mighty Bosstones. 
You also might have caught them 
at their hxal performancs in clubs 
like Grape Street and the North 
Star in Philly. According to man 
ager and occasional mandolin 
player John Myers, the Dirges are 
spending a great deal of time on 
the road building up their fan bast- 
They are currently branching out 
into areas like New York and 
Cleveland. They are hoping that 
the Villanova show sp^jnsored by 
the Campus Activities Team will 
result in some new fans. After 
listening to their current album 
Splinter, this wish is sure to 
become reality. 

The Dirges is composed of Gary 
Mitchell (guitar, bass, vocals), 
Erie Zimmerman (guitar, 
bass.inandolin, vocals), Steve 
Bodner (guitar, acoustic guitar) 
and Brian "Scooter" Hassingcr 
(drums and percussion). They all 
met while at State College Pen 

nsylvania and since graduating 
they have devoted all their time 
and energy to the band. As Meyer 
stated, they are definitely going 
to try, "to make a career out of 
It Somedav. ho[X'fulIy. we will the help oi a record JabeJ 
behind us." 

Fven without the "help of a 
major record label," the Dirges 
have already released two albums. 
Fiber and more recently Splinter. 
The talent of the Dirges is appar- 
ent with one listen of either 
.ilbuni .Although, they would be 
labeled as alternative' (the cate- 
gory of choice for all mainstream 
music today), they possess a very 
unique sound. It is refreshing to 
actually listren to something 
which IS infused with energy 
without being t)lastt'd away by a 
screaming electric guitar, scream- 
ing vocals or incessant pounding 
drums. Please, do not think by the 
word 's(X)thing' I am implying 
elevator music. Rather, the Dirges 
have a sound that one can either 
write a pajxT to or kick hack and 
enjoy a cold beverage ol ( hoice to.

Philosophy of Punk combats old myths 


Stuj/ Reporter 

With the new found pc^pular- 
ity of f'unk r(K)ted bands 
such as Bad KeHgion, Offspring 
and Green Day, the Punk move- 
ment is again, as it was in the late 
7()'s and early 80's, a visible 
element in mainstream media. 
Often though, individuals who are 
being exposed to punk for the first 
time misperceive it to be solely a 
fashion movement. With his book 
entitled The Philosophy of Punk: 
More Than Noise (AK Press, 
1995), author Craig O'hara com 
bats the notion that Punk is solely 
fashion by attempting to present 
the basics of Punk political 

O'Hara explains that the Punk 
movement began around 1975 as 
a backlash by urban proletarians 
to the increasing commodification 
and shallow hedonism of main 
stream rock & roll. From the 
start, Punk philosophy has been 
non-conformist, egalitarian and 
opposed to all authoritarian sys- 
tems, in the belief that all people. 

DHC gets 


Assistant Entertainment Editor 

The majority of the music in 
the world today .seems to be 
dominated purely by the rage of 
angst and or the sadness of the 
tvpical 'boo hoo why me sob 
story.' (ienuinely happy music is 
hard to come by these days. Not 
that there is anything wrong with 
angst; \\ happx-ns to hi' one of my 
very favorite emotions, but some- 
times fun and happiness is in 

That IS where Dance Hall 
Crashers (DHC) step in. They are 
100 percent fun. Consisting of 
Elyse Rogers (vocals), Karina 
Denike (vocals), Jason Hammon 
(guitar), Scott Goodell (guitar), 
Gavin Hammon (drums) and Mi 
key Weiss (bass), DHC boasts that 
their driving force is pure unadul- 
terated fun. Lockjaw, their latest 
CD, is definitely what it is cracked 
up to be — fun, fun, fun. Literally, 
It IS fun in a bottle. 

Dance Hall Crashers began in 
1989 as a side project of both Tim 
Armstrong and Matt Feeman — 
both members of the newly pop 
iilar punk band Rancid (p.s. — 
Rannd is playing at the Trocadero 
in Philly on Oct. 28) and former 
members of punk/ska legends 
Operation Ivy. With some minor 
difficulties in the start, they 
caught on fast in the Northern 
California scene and after a brief 
brake up thev recorded their self 
tilled debut aJhuni Their popular 
ity soared as audiences ate up 
their pop/ska rhythms and high 
intensity fun 

LKkjaw. although with a less 
ska more pop feel, is nonetheless 
a continuation of I)HC"s good 
taste This 14 track CD is bursting 
. with energy, (luirky lyrics and a 
sm(K)thed out mellow fx)p like ska 
beat Songs like "I Don't Wanna 
Behave, " "Queen For a Day " and 
"Pictures " will keep your heart 
racing and vour ears thirsty for

using common sense, can govern 
themselves These views are also 
based upon the belief that, by 
nature, governments and hierar 
chies "involves (the) oppression 
and exploitation of the people 
living under (them)." 

O'Hara explains that many 
misread these anarchist principles 
by equating them with social 
chaos. Instead, anarchy values 
individual freedom and a high 
degree of personal responsibility, 
and thus promotes personal order, 
or the "being a law unto yourself" 
(Oi Polloi). 

In its present form, O'Hara 
explains that "true ' Punk philo- 
sophy opposes, most notably, 
sexism, homophobia, racism, spe- 
ciesism, classism, nationalism 
and environmental exploitation. 
Punks also reject capitalism as a 
corrupt system founded upon 

O'Hara further states that most 
Punks subscribe to some form of 
pacifism, in the belief that true 
radical social change cannot be 
brought about by mimicking that 
same oppressive force used by 
authoritarian systems. Thus, in 
order to promote social change. 

O'Hara states that Punks must be 
willing to teach jxHjple about Punk 
anarchist philosophy. But because 
anarchists believe all f)eople to hti 
equally capable of ruling them 
selves, O'Hara opines that auar 
chist Punks must become teachers 
without becoming leaders. 

The author also discusses in the 
lxx)k the ways in which the Punk 
movement has been misrepres- 
ented by the mass media to the 
mainstream public. Television 
through (sitcoms and talk shows), 
films such as Repo Man and other 
media forms have all depicted 
punk as a "self-destructive, vio- 
lence oriented fad." These media 
distortions, O'Hara posits, have 
brought to the Punk movement 
people who act out these media- 
prescribed roles. 

But possibly the greatest dam- 
age the media has done to the 
Punk movement in the U.S. has 
been, according to O'Hara, "the 
linkage between Punks and Skin- 
heads." Skinheads generally (not 
always!) are reactionary, homo- 
phobic males that are perhaps the 
antithesis of what most Punk 
anarchists stand for' But because 
Skins have over the years, regu- 

larly attended Punk shows, they 
have been falsely associated with 

The author also discusses the 
rise of Straight Edge as a move 
ment originating within Punk. 
The Washington DC hardcore 
punk band Minor Threat began 
the Straight Edge movement in 
1981 as a way to combat the peer- 
pressure that attempted to per 
suade individuals to drink or 
smoke various substances. As Ian 
MacKaye of Minor Threat stated, 
"I want to go out and do something 
with my mind, and do something 
with some sort of direction. . . I'm 
not just here to have a good time" 
Today, however, MacKaye has 
distanced himself from Straight 
Edge because the Straight Edge 
scene has become somewhat self- 
righteous and conformist. 

A further driving ethos behind 
Punk is DIY: Do It Yourself, 
explains O'Hara. Sincere Punk 
bands believe that they needn't 
rely upon rich business people to 
organize and fund their events 
and records. Instead, Punks be- 
lieve they can organize shows, put 
out records, publish literature and 

fanzines, etc. for them.selves, for 
no profit. The early British punk 
band Crass was perhaps the first 
to practice "DIY ism" but the 
author offers the DC-band F'ugazi 
as "the most shining example of 
retaining independence and ideals 
while selling more and more 
records." O'Hara also mentions 
the Gilman Street Clubhouse in 
Berkeley and Positive Force in DC 
as other DIY grass-roots opera- 
tions involved in the scene. 

Although O'Hara's book is a 
valuable, inforihative piece of 
literature (and show photos, too), 
several criticisms can be leveled 
in its direction. Instead of produc- 
ing the "definitive text" the title 
would suggest, one could say that 
the author has let his own point 
of view about what is Punk direct 
his definition of Punk Philosophy. 
Also, the book Tacks a discussion 
of Punk attitudes towards organ- 
ized religion, and is shallow in its 
treatment of racism. However, 
overall The Philosophy of Punk is 
a truly needed consciousness- 
raising book about the ideology of 
a subculture that appears by all 
visible signs to be on the upswing.

You put more than just your savings into a 
retirement company. You put in your trust and 
hopes for the future, too. So before you choose one, 
ask some questions. How stable is the comjiany? 
How solid are its investments? How sound is its 
overall fmancial health? 

A good place to start looking for answers is in the 
ratings of independent analysts. Four companies, all 
widely recognized resources for finding out ho>v 
strong a financial services company really is, gave 
TIAA their top grade. 


TIAA reeeived A** (Superior) from AM. Best

Good Homes' poetic lyrics energize fans 


Stat) Reporter 

There is an intriguing sound 
Ix'coming more and more familiar 
to more and more people all over 
the country. From G(xxi Homes, 
with its major lalx'l debut, Open 
Up the Sky, has a sound that is 
difficult to place in a convenient 
category. This sound you cannot 
quite put your finger on is the kind 
of sound you might think you have 
heard for years. The album's first 
single, "Cool Me Down," has 
found significant radio play while 
the band has been touring non- 
stop for most of 1995, attracting 
an ever-growing following. 

With Todd Sheafter (lead vo- 
cals, guitar, harmonica), Brady 
Rymer (bass), Jamie Coan (acous- 
tic/electric/slide guitars, violin, 
mandolin), Dan Myers (baritone, 
sax, melodica) and Patrick Fitz- 
simmons (drums), the Homes 
bring an organic, natural sound 
to Open Up the Sky. Coan pulls 
sounds out of an acoustic that 
cannot be heard from an electric. 
Myers and Coan often play off 
each other between saxophone

Wanderlust, a Philadelphia 
based band, will make one 
of their first college performances 
on Villanova's campus on Oct. 7, 
during Homecoming Weekend. 

When asked who their musical 
influences were, Scot Sax re- 
sponded, "A combination of Queen 
and Box Car Willy. We like Ween 
and just different songs by differ- 
ent bands. Not any bands in 
particular. And you know the 
Beatles are pretty good. They 
have one, two, three thousand 
killer songs." 

Since Wanderlust has been 
signed, they have played with 
Collective Soul and George Tho- 
rogood. "We did two weeks with 
Collective Soul this summer and 
we're going to do another month 
with them starting Nov. 4. Those 
guys are sort of showing us the 
ropes as far as playing every night 
of the week in front of large 
audiences. Instead of slowly build- 
ing we are sort of jumping right 
into the fire and learning how the 
whole thing works," Sax said. "It 
is a good booking with them 
because the bands are similar 
enough yet dissimilar enough that 
it works well. Their audience 
seems to appricate us even though 
we don't sound exactly like them," 
Mark Levin added. 

RCA seems to have them work- 
ing hard since their Dec. 8, 1994, 
signing. They produced Prize, and 
are presently touring and they 
just recently were part of a pro- 
duction of a tribute album to 
Willie Nelson. "Its got country 
singers singing with rock bands, 
[i.e.] Johnny Cash singing with 
Sound Garden doing a Willie 
Nelson song. We were asked to do 
one of the tracks and we went in 
the studio this past Sunday [Sept. 
17] and recorded with this guy 
called The Grand-Puba. . . We did 
a song called "Sad Songs and 
Waltzes Aren't Sellmg this Year." 
He sang it and we played it," Sax 
and I^evin said. 

There is g(xxl reason not to miss 
this up and coming act, as Mark 
l>evin explained. "We rock out 
when we play live there really is 
a lot of energy in the shows people 
tend to comment about it. " 

and guitar, such as in "Kadio On" 
and "C(xil Me Down." Kymer's 
ever increasing bass is the foun- 
dation for the rest of the band, 
while Fitzsimmons' constant 
drums is like a continual heart 
beat throughout the album. 

Sheaf fer's lyrics are poetic in a 
hick country boy kind of way. 
"Who knows what you're gonna 
find, when you aren't even trying/ 
Two stray dogs on the plantin' 
row, fell m love now they can't 
let go . . ." ("If The Wind Blows") 
or "Like the empty glass on the 
table/is a very good friend of 
mine/asking me if 1 need one 
more/starin straight into my 
mind." ("Let Go"). There is the 
comfortable solitude of "Head," 
(All my world is in ruin/Every 
dream is dead/Me I'll be out flyin'/ 
Tryin' to turn on my own head 
, . .") and the man ready to take 
on the world in "Wide Open Wide" 
(1 swear to God last night/I heard 
a beckon at my window/Sayin' 
goodbye bedford, fat man, so long 

• • •) 

"Raindance" makes a great 
debut album an excellent one. It 

begins with only Sheaffer on 
acoustic, slowly repeating, "Can 
you feel it . . . can you feel it comin 
. .'" before the drums make a 
grand entrance and lead the rest 
of the band into the song. The 
fadeout drums lead the listener 
into the last track, "Fruitful 
Acre," a live song with a happy- 
, go-lucky melody from the bass and 

The Homes headlined the 
Aware Tour which stopped at the 
TLA in Philadelphia last month. 
They have also shared the stage 
with such bands as Widespread 
Panic and Dave Matthews. Their 
sound caught the ear of Bob Weir, 
as well. The Grateful Dead guit- 
arist asked the Homes to jump on 
a stretch of his summer tour. But 
the Homes cannot be dismissed as 
another Dead-type band. They 
have their own grassroots sound 
and personality, and they have a 
link with their ever-growing au- 
dience that is genuine and honest. 
The Homes club circuit tour has 
given them a reputation for put- 
ting on high energy shows, but 
without eccentric lighting, unne- 

cessary videos, or even trampo 
lines. These are five talented 
musicians who bring out the best 
in each other each time thev step 

on tlif stage. They've t)uill lluii 
fan base in New Jersey and are 
now "gettin' ready to |X)p, gettin' 
ready to blow . . ."

Men's cross country 
dominates competition 


Sta/f Reporter 

The men's cross-country team 
easily dismantled a weak field this 
past Saturday at the Leopard 
Invitational. The Cats took the 
top six places in sweeping the 
meet. Kevin Christiani led the 
way, out-distancing his nearest 
teammate by 33 seconds. La 
fayette, on their home course, was 
the closest to the Cats' minimum 
possible score of 15 with 82 points. 
Lehigh finished third with 88 

"Christiani is running very 
solidly for us," said Associate 
Head Coach Jim Tuppeny. 

The senior from Scarborough, 
Ontario, finished in 25:16. 

Christiani was unable to run 
with fellow standout Ken Nason, 
who was held out of this week's 
meet with a bruised foot. He 
sustained the injury in the team's 
first meet this season in New 

"We wanted to make sure that 
this wouldn't become a nagging 
problem," Tuppeny said. 

Nason will return, however, for 
the team's next meet. 

"I was a little surprised at how 
well they did because they had run 
three weeks in a row," Tuppeny 

The next five Wildcats finished 
together. Steve Howard led the 
way, finishing second in the meet 
while Oisin Crowley was third, 

Coulby Dunn t(X)k fourth and 
Steve Mazur rounded out the 
scoring with his fifth place finish. 
Gabriel Soto followed them with 
a sixth place finish. All four men 
finished with a time of 25;49. Rich 
Morris finished one second behind 
in eighth place. 

Crowley, Dunn and Soto, all 
three of whom are newcomers this 
season, continue to turn in strong 
performances while Howard and 
Mazur continue to provide senior 
leadership. Morris, another fresh- 
man, took a big step this week, 
running as the team's seventh 

"They ran the schedule that we 
had set for them," Tuppeny said. 
"We have certain levels that we 
aim for each week. The guys ran 
within themselves and as a group 
with the idea of experimenting on 
different parts of the course. We 
need to prepare them t>ecause our 
real tough races start next week, 
with the NCAA Preview Meet in 
Ames, Iowa." 

After the NCAA preview on Oct. 
14, the championship portion of 
the season begins with the Big 
East Championships Oct. 28 at 
VanCourtlandt Park in New York. 

"We'd like to have them rested 
for this real tough meet in Iowa," 
said Tuppeny. There will be about 
30 teams there including many of 
the top teams in the country." 

Tomorrow, several great former 
Wildcat runners will be recognized 
at halftime of the football game. 

Rule changes take 
away from game 


Staff Reporter 

Well, it was bound to happen 
sooner or later. The NHL has 
finally let commercialism destroy 
the game of hockey. Following in 
the footsteps of the National 
Basketball Association and the 
National Football League before 
it, the National Hockey League 
has implemented new rules that 
protect its prima donnas and shift 
the balance of the game from 
defense to offense. 

This sissification of sports, 
which includes the restrictions 
basketball put on hand-checks 
last year and football's compulsive 
desire to protect three million 
dollar a-year quarterbacks, has 
manifested itself in hockey's new 
obstruction rule. An obstruction 
call differs from a run-of-the-mill 
hook or hold in that it takes place 
away from the puck. Any attempt 
to impede the progress of an 
offensive player will result in a 
two-minute minor penalty. 

The impetus for this change 
was the Stanley Cup victory of the 
New Jersey Devils during last 
year's playoffs. The Devils dump 
and chase offense and trap defense 
did not play well to television 
audiences who tuned in to see 
high-octane offenses score six 
goals a game. By jamming up the 
neutral zone, the Devils were able 
to defeat both the high-scoring 
Philadelphia Flyers and the lightn 
ing quick Detroit Redwings. 

Ostensively, this rule change is 
supposed to improve the game by 

speeding it up. But what it really 
does is make it easier for the 
league's stars to shine. Given a 
clear path to the offensive zone, 
there is no team in the world that 
will be able to stop Philly's Eric 
Lindros or Pittsburgh's Jaromir 
Jagr. They'll each have 30 goals 
by the all-star break. 

Sure, that's great for marketing 
the game to the masses, but what 
about hard-core hockey fans? The 
league already took bench-clearing 
brawls away from us. What's next 
— a Disney team? Oh, that's right, 
they already did that. 

Devils coach Jacques Lemaire 
estimates that there will be be- 
tween 20 and 25 power plays per 
game now that refs will be enforc- 
ing the obstruction call. In fact, 
during last Monday's Devils game, 
there were seven obstruction 
penalties whistled. This practi- 
cally ensures that only offensively 
oriented teams will have a shot 
at winning the cup this year. But 
apparently that is what league 
commissioner Gary Bettman and 
the FOX network wanted all 

One of the saddest things of this 
whole situation is that the Flyers, 
the Broad Street Bullies them- 
selves, have come out in favor of 
the change. Apparently, the team 
has decided to ignore its history 
for the benefit of Mr. Lindros. 
There will no longer be any room 
in the game for bruisers like Philly 
greats Brad Marsh, Dave Brown 
and Dave Schultz. Instead, we 
will be forced to watch European 
style, finesse hcK:key players who 
drink V.vvdu instead of Molsen 

Come out tomorrow to cheer on 

your Cats as they have a gridiron 

clash with Connecticut.

Wildcats dominate on botli sides of tlie field 

" \ 



Thf Wildcat offcnsivo line has played consistently all season. Its 
performance has been the key to Villanova's strong ground attack 
on offense. 

(Cuntinued frum paf^c lUij 
Cowsette, who led llu- rushing 
attack last season but has lost 
some playing time this season due 
lo injuries, has demonstrated 
flashes of brilliance over the past 
two games. 

Sandwiched between the scores 
by (jolemi and Cowsette was 
Dolbin's second touchdown. This 
time it was Park who benefitted 
from Dolbin's knack for finding 
the endzone as the tandem con- 
nected for a 52 yard score. 

"it was a great pass," said 
Dolbin. "He just read the coverage 
and put it right on tht spot." 
Dolbin's five touchdowns this 
season lead the team. 

Nevertheless, it was a team 
effort that pushed the Cats past 
the Bulls. If it were not for a 52 
yard field goal by Buffalo's Gerald 
Carison, the defense would have 
ix)sted its first shutout since it 
blanked Bucknell in 1992. 

A pair of seniors, linebacker A.J. 
Burawski (13 tackles) and strong 
safety Chris Hardy (11 tackles, 
three pass break-ups, one inter 
ception), led the defense. Fresh- 
man defensive tackle Chris Ma- 
chovina dominated his offensive 
counterpart, recordmg one sack 
for 10 yards and registering three 

more tackles behind the line ot 

As a corps, the defense limited 
the Bull's offense to just 243 total 
vards and ordy once let it gel 
inside the 'Nova 30 yardline. 
However, the most telling statistic 
might have been that the Wildcats 
stopped Buffalo on third down 14 
out of H) times. 

Buffalo, who entered the game 
with a lifetime 5-5 record against 
'Nova, was simply overmatched. 
Offensively, Villanova accumu- 
lated 43 1 yards, 262 on t he ground. 
Much of this success can be 
attributed to the starting line that 
has consistently opened holes all 
sea.son. Matt McKnight is joined 
by senior center Ante Benzija and 
fellow juniors Kevin McCarty, 
Chris Okano and Andy Weidl. 

"Ante has been starting for 
three years," said Krebs, a block 
ing tight end who is considered 
an extension of the line. "He 
anchors the line and knows all the 

While the dominating nature of 
Villanova's victory was impres- 
sive, the most important long 
term aspect may have been the 
return of All-Conference receiver 
Brian Finneran. Finneran, who 
separated his shoulder in the first 

game of the year, gives the Cats 
another high powered weapon. 

"He gives us another deep 
ihieat," said Dolbm. "it'll help me 
out more. They won't be able to 
double team and it'll oi)en up the 

"We can go to either Josh or 
Brian," said Krebs. "it doesn't 
really matter." 

'i~he team returns home tomor 
row for Homecoming. Quite pos- 
sibly, Villanova is ready lo make 
some noise in the Yankee

Mudslides downed by Thundering 
Heards, Pi Kapps defeat Phi Sig II 

By (;kf(; (;kfenfieed 

Stall Reporter 

Twoexcitinj^Mntraniural games 
were played this past week out on 
Austin Field. The first was a 
battle between then-rankt-d No 2 
Mudslides and this week's N(». <> 
team Thundering Heards, with 
the Thundering Heards winning, 
25 20. Previous to this game both 
teams were undefeated. The Mud 
slides marauded their first two 
opiJonents on their way lo an 
average score of 3(>3, while Thund 
ering Heards averaged a closer 
martrin of 26-15. 

Thegame was a chess-match on 
the gridiron as both teams battled 
t he cl(x-k for possession of t he ball . 
The first half opened slowly with 
excellent defense as both teams 
were stopped on 4th-and-goal 
situations. Then Thundering 
Heards struck twice to establish 
a 13-0 advantage. However, this 
lead was quickly cut to 13-6. 
As the gam«- wore on, it was 

apparent to the Thundering 
Heards' quarterback Mike Noonan 
that with a touchdown lead and 
the ball in their hands, there was 
little the Mudslides could do 
barring a turnover. 

"I knew they couldn't stop us. 
It was too late," said Noonan. 

Noonan 's predictions held true 
as the Mudslides scored late in the 
game to make it 25-20, but prudent 
use of the clock and the fact that 
Mudslides burned their two time 
outs in the first half, helped the 
Thundering Heards pinch the 









































































W * 

















The Thundering Heards and 
the Mudslides were not the only 
Top Ten teams to battle it out this 
past week on Austin Field. 
Another thriller was the contest 
between then ranked No. 5 Pi 
Kapps and then-ranked .No S Phi 
Sig 11 

The tirsi halt was a delensne 
struggle marked l)y few comple- 
tions, many punts and an inter- 
eeption that set up the only 
touchdown, scored by Pi Kapps. 
Following the t urnover, a quarter- 
back completion t)y John Rearoff 
to Owen Cosgrove, in which 
Cosgrove eluded numerous de- 
fenders to cross the goal line, 
provided the only points that fialf. 
The second half was filled with 
offense as Phi Sig II opened up 
with a scoring drive that culmi 
nated on a Eric Ledieu roll-out and 
pass across the grain to a wide 
ojx'n Chris Schwartz beck, giving 
Phi Sig a 7-6 lead. 

However, this lead was short 
lived, as Cosgrove returned an 
impressive kick by l^-dieu nearly 
the length of the field to put the 
Pi Kapps back on top 12 7. 

"I just got some good blocking 
and some nice holes and I took 
advantage of it," said Cosgrove. 

Phi Sig II, however, would not 
surrender. Upon receiving the 
kick, and after two plays that 
failed miserably, Ledieu launched 
a third-down bomb for a double- 
covered Chris Giuduce that was 
somehow caught for the touch- 
down, putting Phi Sig \\ back on 
top 13- 12. 

But just as Phi Sig U refused 
to give up the big plays, the Pi 
Kapps came back one more time 
for good. After driving consist- 
ently down the field, the Pi Kapps 
were faced with a third down 
situation deep in the red-zone. 
They went to their clutch per- 
former Cosgrove, who made it IH- 
13. With only two minutes on the 
clock. Phi Sig II was unable to 
drive down the field as Ix^dieu was 
intercepted by Jake Riley, sealing 
the victory.

Men's soccer splits with W. Virginia and LaSalle 


Staff Reporter 

After the first seven games of 
the 1995 season, the one glaiMig 
weakness that has plagued the 
Villanova men's soc-cer team is 
their tendency to fall behnid early. 
When the team t(X)k the field 
Friday aftern(K)n in its Big East 
opener, it appeared more confi 
dent, possibly because it was the 
team's first home game of the 

Four minutes into the game, 
sophomore midfielder James Cor- 
coran beat the West Virginia 
goalie with a shot to the right 
corner of the goal for a 1-0 lead. 
That was all the scoring the Cats 
needed. Senior goalie Aleko Zeppos 
recorded his eighth career shutout 
in their first conference win of the 
season, I-O. Zeppos is now just 
three shutouts short of the ViUan 
ova record held by Fete Jirah, a 
member of the class of '81. 

Two days later, the Cats tra 
veiled to LaSalle and looked to 
build on the momentum after 
their West Virginia win. However, 
the slow starting Wildcats t(X)k 
the field and found themselves 
staring at a 2-U halftime deficit. 

Despite tying the score in the 
second half after sophomore Kevin 
Mullm and junior .Mike l-ranca 
langia each scored his first goal 
of the season, the Cats lost 3-2. 
Sophomore Matthew Westfall 
started in net for 'Nova and 
despite the loss came up with 
some key saves. It was his .first 
start since a Sept. 3 start versus 
Lehigh m the Lehigh 

The Wildcats record now stands 
at 2-5-2 overall and 1-3 in the Big 
East. Eight different players have 
scored for the team, with Doug 
Nevins leading the way with three 
goals and seven i^oints. 

Villanova will host an improv- 
ing Providence Friar team on 
Sunday at 1 p.m. A Wildcat win 
would be a great way to wrap up 
Homecoming weekend. Despite 
being winless in the Big East, the 
Eriars recently played 10th ranked 
Brown and lost 4-3 in overtime 
after leading 3-2 with five minutes 
to go. Providence goalie Chris 
Ivany is looking forward to the 

"We didn't start off the season 
t(K) well," said Ivany. "Against 
Brown, we had a solid effort, but 
the breaks didn't fall our way. It 
should Ix' a close played game." 

Water polo stays 
afloat in Virginia 


Staff Ripvrtcr 

The men's water polo team 
travelled to Virginia last weekend 
with the intent of rebounding 
from a downward skid that 
dropped it out of the NCAA poll. 
The Wildcats came up short in 
their first match as they fell to 
George Washington by a score of 
8-6. The team rallied back, how 
ever, and turned in winning 
efforts against No. 20 Washington 
& and Richmond, improving 
its record to 8-6. 

In the first match of the wee 
kend the Wildcats just did not 
have enough to get past George 
Washington. Nevertheless, Paul 
(iranneman and Darren Hardel 
contributed two goals each while 
Jaime Randall and Brian Scull 
scored a goal apie<'e Ben Ig(K- 
recorded 10 saves in the net. 

"We came out a little flat," said 
senior captain Igoe. "We weren't 
really able to get things together 
We were still on our downward 
slide from the wwkend before." 

After the loss, there was a team 
meeting which appeared to 
straighten things out as 'Nova 
came out and crushed Washington 
& Ia-v by a score of 1 1 6. The 
Wildcats had no problem adjust 
ing to the shallow yxn)] that they 
are unaccustomed to as they 
played a flawless game. This 

victory served as a confidence 
txK)ster for 'Nova because Wa- 
shington & Lee defeated Navy, 
which is regarded as one of the 
top teams in the East. 

Granneman had an outstanding 
game, recording three goals. Briai; 
Tomsheck and Randall turned in 
two goals each. Other scorers 
included Hardel, Marcus Sanford, 
Rich Webb and Kevin Driscoll. 

After defeating Washington 
and Lee, the Cats turned in 
another convincing victory, deliv 
ering Richmond a 9-4 loss. Senior 
Driscoll turned in a stellar perfor- 
mance with three goals, while 
(iranneman had another impres- 
sive game with twogoals. Randall, 
Sanford, Hardel and Dave Prusa 
kowski all contributed goals for 
the winning effort. Igoe had 
another outstandinggame with 14 

"Before the team meeting we 

were down, but we figured out 

what we have to do," said Driscoll. 

'We are definitely back on the 

right track." 

"The past couple of weeks we 
were losing here and there, but 
we have found our cure for that." 
Igoe said "Any other glitches, we 
have time to work out.'" 

The team is off next weekend, 
but will Im' set for action against 
Johns Hopkins, Princeton and 
Navy on Oct. 14. The Wildcats 
will then travel to California for 
a series of matches over fall break. 


The Wildcats collected their first conference win of the season against the Mountaineers. The 
team, however, followed the win with a loss to the Explorers.

Volleyball loses fight to nationally ranked Irish 


Stuf) Rfportcr 

Coming into this volleyball 
season Head Coach Ron Twomey 
.had high expectations for his 
young and potentially dangerous 
squad. Having reached the mid 
p(Mnt of the season, Twomey 
cannot be disappointed as his 
young Cats have won eight out of 
their last 11 matches. 

Last week Villanova defeated 
Delaware for the second time this 
season, p-ollowing their victory 
over the Blue Hens, the Wildcats 
were victorious against Lehigh. 
The Cats finished off the week by 
facing the No. 10 team in the 
country, the Fighting Irish of 
Notre Dame. 'Nova lost in three 
straight sets to the Irish, but the 
results on the scoresheet do not 
indicate how well the Cats 

Against Delaware, the Cats 
came out and trounced ihe Blue 
Hens, defeating them 15 4 m the 
first game. H(jwever, 'Nova let 
down in the second game and paid 
the price, losing 15-11. The resil- 
ient Wildcats bounced back, how- 
ever, and l)eat Delaware in the 
next two games (15-6, 15 9)togive 
them the match. As usual, a 
number of Cats contributed to the 
team's victory. Freshmen Eliza 
beth Jones and Megan O'Brien 
continued to have outstanding 
rookie seasons. Jones drilled 12 
kills against the Blue Hens and 
only had one hitting error. O'Brien 
also tallied \2 kills to go along 
with 25 digs. 

After defeating Delaware, the 
Cats came out sluggish against a 
less talented Lehigh. 'Nova over 
came its poor start and defeated 
Lehigh in four sets (16-14, 11-15, 
15-5, 15-2). Setter Cari Clawson, 

the only senior and captain of the 
It-am, tallied 40 assists. O'Brien 
and Jones comfjined for 25 kills 
and 'AU digs. Sophomore Marisa 
Davidson contributed by record 
ing 12 kills, two aces and eight 
bl(Kks. The win gave Villanova an 
H (i record heading into its Big 
Last ojx'ner against Notre Dame. 

Villanova hosted Notre Dame 
last Sunday in front of 4;}9 spec 
tators, a new attendance record 
for Villanova. The 10th ranked 
Irish beat the Cats in three sets. 
However, the match was much 
more exciting than the final 
results might indicate as the Cats 
fought the Irish to the very end. 

"We're feeling well about that 
match," said Coach Twomey. 
"We showed that we could play 
at that level." 

The Cats came out early and 
clawed at Notre Dame but fell 
behind early, 7-1. The team con- 

tinued to work and play hard and 
were able to make the game ilose, 
losing 15 10. The Irish dominated 
the next game, taking it easily 15- 
l In thi' third game of the match, 
Villanova came out possessed, 
taking a 12-7 lead, but the Irish 
stormed back to take the next 
eight points and llw match. 

l.ike many other of the Cats' 
opponents. Notre Dame keyed on 
phenom Stacy Fvans. Still, she 
was able to record 10 kills and 
nine digs. Davidson continued her 

suptTb play as she added nine kills 

to the effort. Davidson is averag 
mg three kills jx-r game as well 
as leading the team ni bkx-king. 
As a team, the Cats continued to 
play solid defense, holding a 
ixjwerful Notre Dame offense to 
a .2(K) hitting percentage. 

With an H-7 (0 1 Big East) 
record, Villanova now l(x)ks for- 
ward to lacing a (ieorgetown team 
that l)eat them last year in four 
games. The Wildcats will host the 
Hoyas on Friday, Oct. 6. 

Field hockey wins 
three, two in OT 

Tennis collects first victories 
over W. Chester, Millersville 


Staff Reporter 

They say good things come to 
those who wait, and the women's 
tennis team had been waiting all 
season long. It had been a rough 
road for the team to start the 
season, but the newly built squad 
finally captured its first wins last 
week over West Chester and 

Trying to find a cure for a 
dwindling record, the team pulled 
all its talents together and found 
an elixir. Starting out on the right 
f(X)t in doubles, the consistent 
play continued into singles com- 
petition. Dropping no more than 
six games, the entire lineup 
plowed through West Chester in 
two sets each. 

First year and No. 1 singles 
player Julie Bonner did not let her 
opponent capture a game the 
entire match, adding a straight- 
set victory to her already budding 
collegiate record. Combining for 
ces with junior Chris Grasso, in 
doubles action, the pair registered 
yet another win (8-0) in the No. 
1 ix)sition. 

No. 6 singles player, sophomore 
Ashley Pagana, came in a close 
second behind Bonner's sweep. 
Rounding out 'Nova's singles 
play, Pagana dropped only one 
game in each sef to clinch the 
singles competition for the Cats. 
In doubles play, paired with first 
year player Dorothy Bellock, the 
tandem recorded an 8-1 victory 
over the visiting squad, giving 
Villanova the confidence it was 
. looking for. 

Team captain Tina Fiore paired 
with junior Erin O'Shea in the No. 
2 doubles position. The two did 
not have as easy a time as their 
teammates did in capturing their 
win. Dropping four games in its 
proset to the visiting team, the 
duo pulled away to register an 8- 
4 victory for 'Nova. 

The momentum of their first 
win carried the squad into its 
away matchup against Millers 
ville. A switch in the lineup gave 
playing time to both junior Kara 
Renzelli in the fifth and sixth 
singles positions. Behind sopho 
more Meg Daniels at the No. 1 
position, the squad registered its 
second win. 6-1. 

Dropping only the first singles 

spot to Millersville, the rest of the 
lineup discredited the home court 
advantage philosophy very 
quickly. Relying on the consis- 
tency and the confidence of their 
first win, the singles players 
cruised to victory without having 
to go three sets. 

The No. 2 doubles contest 
proved to be a fight to the finish 
for the Cats. Matching each other 
serve for serve, Daniels and 
O'Shea found themselves in a tie 
break to decide their match. 
Registering a 7-3 tie break win, 
the pair finalized the sweep of the 
doubles for the Cats. With iden 
tical scores, the No. 1 doubles pair 
Bellock and Pagana and No. 3, 
Main and Renzelli, both posted 
scores of 8-6 for the sweep of 
doubles play. 

In light of its two victories, 
there also came some losses. 
Giving up a match to Big East 
opponent St. John's and one to 
I^fayette, the squad dropped its 
record to 2-7. 

The squad will be on the road 
f(jr the rest of the seas<jn. Up next 
on the roster for the Cats is 
crosstown rivals Temple Univer 
sity on Oct. 12. 


The No. 16 Wildcats Ixxisted their Big East record by defeating (ieorgetown and Seton Hall. 
The team's success has been the result of a balanced attack of defense and scoring. 


Staff Reporter 

The Villanova field hockey 
team went three for four over the 
past week, including two nail 
biting overtime wins. Junior cap- 
tain Jill Basile has lead the team 
in more ways than one, scoring 
in each of the last four games. She 
is currently ranked tenth in the 
Big East in goal scoring. Team 
mate Nina Berrettini has also 
been instrumental to the scorinig 
attack, as she presently ranks 
13th in the Big East. 

The Cats were defeated by a 
talented St. Joseph's team on 
Wednesday, Sept. 27 by a score 
of 5-1. St. Joe's scored early, but 
the rest of the game was played 
evenly. Unfortunately, the dam- 
age had already been done. Basile 
had the lone goal of the day for 
the Cats. 

'Nova bounced fight back 
though, defeating LaSalle 5 1 the 
next day. 

"This game could not have 
come at a better time," .said Head 
Coach Joanie Milhous. "We really 
needed a confidence builder, and 
this game realky showed our 
ability to score. Our fundamentals 
were great and we finally proved 
that we could win." 

Villanova pulled out to an early 
lead with Berrettini and Basile 
each scoring goals within the first 
10 minutes to play. The score 
would remain 2-0 through the half 
until Amy Antonelli of LaSalle 
would score its one and only goal 
three minutes into the second 
half. Berrettini would answer 
that with her second goal of the 
day. Basile added another insu 
ranee goal before senior Kristen 
Hurt would i)ut the final tallv at 

On Sunday, Oct. 1 , the Wildcats 
faced Holy Cross in a battle to the 
finish. Junior Cherilyn Sackel 
scored with seven minutes re- 
maining in the first half to pul 
VI ' uj), 1 0. Holy Cross woiild then 
score midway through the second 
h;ilf. resulting in a tie-game at the 
end ol regulation. 

"It was a tough and exciting 
game," said Milhous. "We did not 
play up to our potential so I was 
glad it went into seven vs seven 
overtime. It showed what our 
team was really made of. They 
never gave up and played to the 

Basile notched the winning goal 
to give Villanova the victory. 

Tuesday's game at Drexel was 
just as tough. Drexel has a grass 
field and the 'Nova women had a 
hard time adjusting as this was 
their first game on grass this year. 
Milhous was very impressed with 
her team's performance as a 
whole, despite their need to adjust 
quicker. With no score at the end 
of regulation, the team faced its 
second bout with overtime. Mil- 
hous has been pleased with her 
team in both overtime situations. 

"Overtime is great for it really 
shows conditioning plus the learn 
has really been playing smart," 
she said. 

The Wildcats currently have a 
three game winning streak going 
and play tomorrow at Virginia. 


This past Saturday the Vil 
lanova Rugby team travelled to 
Scranton University. With a 
young team Villanova was the 
expected underdog. However, 
the team quickly proved it 
could hold its own against a 
more experienced team. Scran 
ton scored early in the first half 
and added to its lead by kicking 
for points on a penalty. Junior 
Nate Horst kicked for ix)ints on 
a fx*nalty to put Villanova on 
the l)oard. Sophomore Pat Tina 
picked up a tri to tie the game 
and the final score was eight 
to eight. Villanova will play

Cats tally first victory against Buffalo 


Sports Editor 

It was a long time coming, but 
Head Coach Andy Talley finally 
claimed the topsijot in the annuals 
of Villanova fcMjtball. After four 
failed attempts, his football team 
finally gave him his fiGth career 
win on the Main Line. 

"He treated it basically as 
another game," said junior tight 
end Pat Krebs. "He didn't talk 
about it as being the most wins 
in Villanova history." 

Before the opening kickoff, 
Talley dedicated the game to two 
of his injured players, hut when 
the final gun sounded, it was 
Talley who received a standing 

"We were just concerned about 
getting the job done," said junior 
tackle Matt McKnight, but admit- 
ted that "after the game, it was 
special. " 

The Wildcats rolled over the 
Ruffallo Bulls, winning 28-3. It 
marked the most lopsided victory 
in Villanova's last 10 games and 
demonstrated the team's potential 
for the remainder of the year. For 
the third time in four weeks, 
sophomore receiver Josh Dolbin 
sparked the offense. He only 
caught two passes, but both were 
for touchdowns. 

His first touchdown reception 
came just five nunutes into the 
game. Senior quarterback Tom 
Marchese, who shared time at the 
helm with sophomore Clint Park, 
found Dolbin for a seven yard 

h(X)k up. The Buffalo defense was 
playing Dolbin to run a corner 
route, but he ran a slant instead. 

"Marchese put the ball right in 
my numbers," said Dolbin. "It 
wasn't that hard of a catch." 

That touchdown would come on 

the Cats' first possession. 

They never looked back. 

In the second quarter, freshman 
tailback Todd Golemi punched the 
ball in from three yards out for 
the Cats' second touchdown. By 
halftime, Golemi had rushed for 

76 yards en route to a 142-yard 
game. In the four games this 
season, he has rushed for 391 
yards on only 65 carries (6.0 avg.) 
(jolemis tellow tailback, An- 
thony Cowsette, also scored.

Head Coach Andy Talley recorded his record breaking 66th victory this past weekend in Buffalo. 
Talley has patrolled the sidelines for the Cats since 1985. 

Talley becomes 
Villanova's all-time 
winningest coach 


Sports Editor 

Last weekend's victory over 
Buffalo not only marked a turna- 
round in the Wildcat football 
season, it also established Head 
Coach Andy Talley as the winn- 
ingest coach in Villanova Football 

Coach Talley and his squad 
were reeling after three straight 
loses, making last week's win a 
must in two ways. 

"We started out with three 
tough teams," Talley said. "I 
knew we could be 0-3 because our 
team is not quite there, but we 
are getting there. The fact of the 
matter is we needed to win last 

The Cats also needed a win to 
put the business of this record 
aside to get back to building a 
winning season. 

"When I started thinking about 
it, I just wanted to get it done," 
Coach Talley said. "I just wanted 
to get it off my back and move 

But make no mistake about it; 
Talley believes his 66th victory is 
a great milestone in his 11 -year 
career. He has earned and appre- 
ciates the recognition. 

"It is certainly great to be' 
somebody's number one," said 
Coach Talley. "I am obviously 
very proud to be Villanova's all- 
time winningest coach." 

What makes this accomplish- 
ment all the more special for 
Talley is whom he surpassed, one 
of Notre Dame's "Four Horse- 
men," Harry Stuhldreher. 

"The guy was a legend,' Coacn 
Talley said. "And legends are 
really hard to overcome. It has 
been a long hard journey." 

What has made Talley's journey 
a little longer than expected is the 
Cats past two seasons. During 
this span, they produced only 
eight wins in 20 games.

a slow start this season. In its first 
three games, in which it had a

about 1.3 goals a game. In the last 
six games though, the Wildcat 
offense has come alive. Led by 
senior Julie Flister (14 pts.) and 
sophomores Nicole Posillico (13 
pts.) and Maura McGhee (10 pts.),

Crowding forces students off-campus 


Nev\.\ Editor 

Juniors who currently live on cam- 
pu.s received a letter Monday from Dr 
Christine A. Lysionek, director for the 
Office for Residence Life, informing 
them "we are unlikely to have on-cam- 
pu.s spaces available for seniors" for 
the 1996-97 school year. Because of 
this, juniors will not be included in 
the housing lottery process for the 
apartments or the residence halls this 

"Villanova has made the commit- 
ment to three years of continuous 
housing," said Lysionek. In a prelimi- 
nary analysis done by the Office for 
Residence Life, it became apparent 
that the University's obligation to 
house current first and .second ycdi 
students, as well as next year 's in-com- 
ing class, made the housing decision 
necessary. "In conjunction with the 
gradual plan to right-size, the goal was 
to house around 70 percent of the 
population," she said, adding that the 
goal was consistent with the three-year 
housing guarantee extended to all in- 
coming students. 

"With the inception of the apart- 

ments, there's a stronger interest for 
students to remain on campus," said 
Lysionek. The addition of the apart- 
ments has changed the percentage ot 
students who ch(X)se to move off-cam- 
pus for their junior and senior years, 
according to Lysionek. "The demand 
for housing among the juniors, with 
the opening of the apartments, is 
higher than we've seen in the, and 
we began to feel a squeeze," she said 

Student Government Association 
President Michael O'Brien said, "The 
announcement that ri.sing on-campus 
seniors will not be able \o remain on 
campus comes as no surprise. The 
Office of Enrollment Management has 
failed to accurately calculate the num- 
ber of in-coming freshmen the past 
two years, and the rising on-campus 
.seniors are paying for their mistakes" 
He went on to say that more students 
are being admitted to the University . 
but the campus facilities are not pre- 
pared to handle such large numbers. 

" year, we did what we would 
normally do and. found our numbers 
to be off We took more seniors than 
we should have at that time, given the 
freshmen numt)ers." said Lysionek. 
This miscalculation created the fresh- 

man tripling situation, she said. "The 
decision about going out and being 
able to offer .seniors housing has been 
made gradually . . to continue to of- 
fer seniors housing is to begin to have 
to take the beds from somewhere, and 
we don't have them," she said. 

The decision to intbmi the effected 
students early in the school year was 
made to give them sufficient lime to 
make other housing arrangements, 
according to Lysionek. "We just fell 
the more warning we could give 
people the better," she said. 

"The over enrollment of students 
that is preventing rising seniors from 
living on campus next year is not the 
fault of Residence Life," said O'Brien. 
Instead, he attributed the problems to 
the Office of Enrollment Management "failure is preventing ris- 
ing on-campus seniors who want to 
live on campus from doing so." 

The Rev. William McCjuire, 
O.S.A., dean of Enrollment Manage- 
ment, was quoted in the Sept. 15 i.s- 
sue of The Villanovan a.> saying, "Our 
margin of error this year was only 
about 1.5 percent." Lysionek said that 
such an error is statistically acceptable 
and does not really represent mistakes

staff of the University in September. 
According lo the Rev. Edmund J

document is an essential contribution 
to our strategic planning efforts It 
integrates the global visions arlicu 
lated in our mission statement and A 
future of Promise with the goals, 
needs and priorities of our Colleges 
and administrative units." 

Fhe distribution of this plan to all 
members of our community signifies 
not only its importance, but the desire 
for increa.sed participation and discus- 
sion among our many colleagues. 
Father Dobbin adds, "We are seeking 

a new modus operandi . one which 
lalls for leadership while encourag 
iiig personal lesponsihiliiy Each ot 
us makes vital contributions to the 
quality of Villanova. As leaders, we 
strive to be responsive to the chal

Comprehensive Plan uses the goals 
from A Future of Promise as the basis 
for the discussion and specification of 
strategic directions. 

In the section entitled "The Com 
niitmeni to Excellence," the Compre- 
hensive Plan further defines Father 
Dobbin s new modus operandi mid the 
behaviors required for organizational 
transfonnation. "To maintain our fu- 
ture of promise and excellence we 
need to understand that higher educa 
tion is facing challenges never before 
experienced. I expect that each of us. 
at every level, will adopt these behav 
iors in our professional lives. To em 
brace these behaviors is to embrace 
the sense of community and commit- 
ment our future requires," stated Fa 
ther Dobbin. 

Dr. Laflerty, University Vice-Presi- 
dent, commented. "Our strategic plan- 
ning process is a fiexible one and

Government reports 
drop in murder rate 

WASHIN(;T0N -The Govern- 
ment reported Tuesday that the ho- 
micide rate in the United States fell 
lor the third consecutive vear in 

Tlie National Center for Health 
Statistics .said that the rate fell to 8.2 
percent to 9.7 homicides per 
l(K),(XK) people. The numbers fell 
from 2."^ .479 in 1993 to 23.730 

Many of the nation's largest cit- 
ies have reported findings similar 
to the national results. New York 
City IS expected to report a drop of 
4X percent at the end of this year 
from Its high of 2,245 in 1990. 

Police offer the theory that 
higher profiles of law enforcement 
officials in high crime areas may 
contribute to the decline, but offi- 

cials at the center refuse to speculate 
as to possible causes. 

Debate on prison 
sentences for drug 
convictions sparks 

ATLANTA — Congress's vote last 
week not to change the differences in 
sentencing crack ccKaine violators and 
other drug offenders sparked prison 
riots in five Federal penetentaries said 
prison advocates. A national lockout 
since the incidents have not permitted 
the prisoners to comment, but officials 
and Republicans warn against any 
quick as.sessments while the situation 
remains under inve.stigation. 

Many organizations are urging 
President Clinton to veto the legisla- 
tion, which outlines stricter punish- 
ments for offenders involved with 
crack cocaine in comparison to pow- 
dered cocaine. However, many say 
that Clinton may not be enthusiastic

stance on stricter penalties tor

Fan convicted in 
singer's murder 

HOUSTON-The jury took less 
than two and a half hours on Tues 
day to convict Yolanda Saldivar of 
the murder of Tejano music singer 
Selena in a Corpus Christi motel 
room last March. Saldivar was the 
founder and once president of the 
slain star's fan club. The length of 
her .sentence has not been decided. 
Saldivar 's lawyers contended 
that the gun went off accidentally 
and that the defendant had really 
planned on killing herself. The 
murder followed a bitter disagree- 
ment over Selena's financial affairs. 
Fans outside the courthouse 
cheered the verdict.

Homecoming given stamp 
of approval despite poor 
student turnout 

One of the Homecoming 
Committee's biggest dis- 
appointments was the 
lack of attendance by un- 
dergraduates, since a 
large part of the planning 
process was devoted to 
the students. 


Staff Reporhi 

Villanova Homeconiiiig l^^MS re- 
ceived praise from University akiiurii 
and their families. According to (lary 
Olsen, director of Alumni Affairs and 
Homecoming Committee Chair, this 
year's Homecoming succeeded in 
achieving the various goals set by the 
Hotiiecoming Committee. 

The picnic area arranged for older 
alumni and their children was ex- 
tremely popular, providing a safe, en- 
tertaining and 
fami ly -ori- 
ented section 
lor alumni to 
enjoy Home- 
coming while 
still being with 
their families, 
said Olsen. 

The prob- 
lems associ- 
ated with prior 
at the Univer- 
sity were 
eliminated this 
year. Alcohol 
related vandal- 
ism and 
r o w d 1 n e s s 

were nearly non-existent, and Radnor 
Police officials were not as busy con- 
trolling crowds. OLsen said there was 
a dramatic reduction in medical emer - 
gencies, noting only one for the 
entire weekend Also, vandalism, 
dorm parties and noise in residence 
halls were all minimal as compared 
to previous Homecomings 

Undergraduates and younger 
aluinni seemed to have shown their 
disapproval of the changes through 
poor attendance. Few undergraduates 
were found near the entertainment 
stage or the Greek tents. "One of the 
Homecoming Committee's biggest 
disappointments was the lack of at- 
tendance by undergraduates, since a 
large part of the planning prcKess was 
devoted to the students," said Olsen. 
Olsen said that it was a shame the 
Homecoming Committee scheduled 
three popular bands to play specifi- 
cally for the under-21 crowd, but very 
few people were in the audience. Fur - 
thermore, very few undergraduates 
attended any of the Homecoming fes 

Speculation ab<iut the reasons for 
the low undergraduate attendance sug- 
gested that students knew obtain- 
ing alcohol would be difficult and 

therefore avouled the events on 
Sheehaii Beach Olsen said the restric- 
tions on alcohol were "necessary in 
order to be responsible and safe and 
sustain good relations with the sur 
rounding community. ' 

Other complaints came from the 
younger alumni, who felt inconve- 
nienced by the crowds in the over -21 
area and by the very long beer lines 
Olsen said that next year, the younger 
alumni will be able to assist in the 
Homecoming planning process 
through 4J3 advisory committee. 

Olsen said 
the responses 
have been 
positive, and 
the younger 
alumni have 
many ideas 
about im- 


tion conceni- 
iiig next 
year's Home- 
c o m i n g 
events has yet 
to be re- 
leased. The 
final analysis 
of this year's Homecoming will take 
place in two weeks, at which time a 
brainstorming se.ssion will be used to 
generate ideas for next year 's events.

The student-initiated International 
Studies Peer Counseling Program 
consists of eight students helping to 
advise others about study abroad ex- 
periences. The service was imple- 
mented in fall of 1994 by the Interna- 
tional Studies department The Peer 
Counseling Program serves "to give 
students encouragement and a gentle 
push when hesitant in making the de- 
cision to study overseas," according 
to Beth Rossi, a counselor who spent 
a semester in Sienna. Italy Director 
of International Studies. I3r Thomas 
Ricks and Dr Michael Burke, who is 
filling the position while Ricks is on 
sabbatical, train and select students as 
counselors, who receive non-work 
study pay. All of the counselors have 
spent at least one semester overseas 
and have become thoroughly ac- 
quainted with many piugiams for In- 
ternational study. 

F>ach counselor assi.sts five to seven 
students in an approximately six 
nKMith pnKCss of finding, applying to, 
and preparing for an international ex- 
cursion. Karen Pallen. who studied 
in Valparaiso, Chile, said, "I love this 
job as a counselor because it gives me 
a chance to relive my experience and 
to help others broaden their hori/ons. " 
Counselors also guide a re-entry pro- 
gram to help participants readjust to 
Villanova after their intcniational stud- 

ies. "This gives them a chance to share 
with people who understand and are 
interested in their experience," said 
Amy Pearsall. a counselor who trav- 
eled to Granada, Spain. 

The coun.selors asserted their w ill- 
ingness and dedication to the program 
"I am excited to be a counselor be- 
cause [studying abroad) was the l>esi 
experience of my life," said Jennifer 
Anderson, who studied in vSienna. 
ltal\. and other counselors agree with 
her They strongly encourage anyone 
of any major to participate in an inter - 
national studies program "(The e\ 
periencej is something we draw from 
everyday whether il is finding a job 
or relating to other people." said

inception of the program who siudieil

national Peer Counseling Program 
works very well for everyiMie con

endorsed, but many other programs 
are available for course credit. The 
cost of a .semester overseas is about 
the same for a semester at Villanova. 
Some financial aid loans are transfer - 
able, and .some international programs 
offer financial services themselves. 
The chances of being accepted to a 
piogram abroad is excellent accord- 
ing to Ricks. Programs fill up early, 
so the earlier students look into the 
process, the easier it is to find a suit- 
able program. All of the counselors 
are prepared to help students look into

Midterm reports fail 
to make the grade 

Students throughout the Llniversity have received their mid- 
lerni grades; however, most students are unsure about their 
progress within their courses thus far. Ahhough the University 
chiims this to be the purpose of mid-term reports, the Univer- 
sity is simply not making the grade. 

Many professors simply administer an average grade or an 
•SP" (satisfactory progress) to every student. These grades in 
no way reflect the performance ol the students, they merely T 
serve to meet the demands of the administration. Professors of- 
ten choose to take such action because the syllabi whch they 
have developed do not allow for an exam to be given before 
grades are due to be turned in. 

Meanwhile, other professors develop their courses to allow 
for an exam or paper which would provide a legitimate grade at 
the mid-term. However, this year most of the faculty were not

To the Editor: 

to trust their judgment. 

Il has been a little less than a year since the new Wildcat hit the shelves and royalty revenue" at Villanova 
have increased by 3(M) percent. 

The creation of a new logo and the highly marketable mer- 
chandise has been a tremendous success. We will never argue 

that fact. The problem is that items featuring the logo are still "'yingtodestroy an nuKKent person" s placed m this event IS reduced r( 
scarce throughout the nation. There are a few hats and jerseys 
scattered in the racks of a few stores. But overall, it would be 
difficult to find Wildcat merchandise on regular basis unless 
you happen to be on campus. 

Every time Villanova plays a game on CHS nr BSPN theAth 
letic department gels calls from people all over the country 
wondering if ihcy can buy merchandise bearing the new logo. 
1 he merchandise does exist, but finding it is a different story. 

The Athletic department has already enjoyed the benefits of 
having a marketable logo. We can only imagine the success they 
would have if the nation had better access to the merchandise. 

People not asstKiated with the University may never buy Vil 
lanova items the way they purchase Notre Dame or Miami Hur 
ricane merchandise, but they should at least have the chance.
