T # 4 L niven ^STITU^ News DAU^ Volume XXVII, Number 7 http://acad.udallas.edu/www/udnews Wednesday, March 18,1998 Students help Mississippi, Mexico residents during alternative spring break vacations By Michelle Gieske Contributing Writer "Rest your head, but not your heart!" became the theme of those who went to Mexico and Mississippi for Spring Break. Once again, the students who went to help the poor people on their"alternative spring breaks,"ended up learning more from them than the poor learned from the students of what true charity really is. Two groups of UD students, 16 boys and 9 girls, went with Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church, to Monter- rey, Mexico. There they helped the people in whatever way they needed or wanted, including rebuilding fences, chopping trees, washing dishes or painting doors and walls. Also the students were given the opportunity to practice their Spanish, which gave the Mexican children and women a good laugh. "Being called a'gri...

4 March 18,1998 The University News Arts & Senior Studios Sustek presents Antigone in modern Berlin By Jessica Robersori Arts and Entertainment Co-editor 1945 Berlin provides the backdrop for Christine Sustek's presentation of Bertolt Brecht's Antigone, a modern version of the classic Greek tragedy. The production is one of two senior studios featured this spring. Sustek chose Brecht's adaptation In an effort to bring the story closer to life. "I think this interpretation is very interesting; it brings the story a little closer. 1945 Berlin is a period more familiar to present-day audiences, and the audience can better relate to the characters and their motives," Sustek said. The setting is an unlikely one for a Greek tragedy, but Sustek claims that there are many parallels between the two periods. "World War II serves as a parallel for the war with Argos, and the Argoan in- vasion ofThebes atthe end of the play is a reference to Germany's invasion by the Allies,"Sustek said. Se...

Arts The University News March 18,1998 5 Altman's Grisham, a droll Hurt and double DiCaprio By F.S. Contributing Writer The Gingerbread Man (UA Plaza) There's a greater sense of Savannah sultri- ness in a single frame of Robert Altman's skillful, atmospheric new movie than there was in ail 150 minutes of Clint Eastwood's misbegotten Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The picture, about a devious lawyer (Kenneth RT'f movie reviews Branagh, sporting a fine Georgia accent) drawn into a quarrel between a troubled woman (Em- beth Davidtz) and her fanatical father (Robert Duvall), is based on a story by John Grisham, but it'sclearly an Altmanfilm—shrewd, multilayered, moody—rather than just a workmanlike Grisham adaptation (as was Francis Ford Coppola's recent version ofThe Rainmaker). It's a pleasurably con- voluted, old-fashioned thriller, brought off in fine style by a real master. Love and Death on Long Island (UA Cine) Thomas Mann's Death in Venice is the obvi- ous springboard ...

10 March 18,1998 The University News "News Letter from As a whirlwind tears through a city, throwing houses this way (sometimes with poor,frightened girls huddled in the basement with their faithful little dogs) and trees that way, tearing up streets and raining down fish and so forth, and then blows away, leaving crowds of discon- certed citizens in its wake, so confusedly, has passed the time since last pen has touched paper on your behalf, friends and neighbors dear to all our hearts, who remain in the fatherland while we sojourn abroad.

The University News News March 25,1998 3 Founding ideas are models, West says continued from page 1. When Smith asked West if the founders made the task of emancipa- tion more difficult by protecting slav- ery in the Constitution, West answered that in the short run it strengthened, // Our task as a people is to have our matter live up to the form. It is our aspi- ration as a nation which is always incomplete. — Dr. Thomas West, politics department 11 but in the long run it weakened the institution of slavery. In his closing arguments, Smith said there is still work to be done to carry on Lincoln's equality principle. West agreed in his closing statement but disagreed as to how this should be done. West said the "form" is the equality principle and the "matter" is the country. "Our task as a people is to have our matter live up to the form. It is our aspiration as a nation which is always incomplete,"West said. West encouraged the audience to understand the founding asa"form we can ...

Victoria's secrets revealed By John Connaughtori Contributing Writer The other day, while flip- ping through my Spring '98 Victoria's Secret catalogue (I subscribe to it for the articles), I began to pon- der the mean- ing of its title. I asked myself "What's the big secret?" It seems that with the merchandise displayed in the catalogue, a more fitting title might be Victoria's Big An- nouncement. To be honest, lacy silk and satin are notthe most clandestine of fabrics. In my humble opinion, think it would make more sense for a fashion periodical that dubs itself "secretive" not to contain shapely su- permodels in revealing nightwear and tiny swimwear, but rather to feature more relevant clothing such as parkas and mumus modeled by women who practice orthodox Islam. Calling Vic- to...

Guys and Dolls, this year's spring musical, is a colorful story about gangsters, showgirls and a church mis- sion. Alumnus JanelleTodd directs the student cast in what promises to be an entertaining evening of song, dance, showgirls and tough-guy accents. The show is set in New York City in the late 1940s, and the cast is made up of gangsters, church missionaries and showgirls.Todd said the story is"a little bit convoluted, there are four strands that intertwine to make up the plot. "Firstyou have Nathan Detroit, who is looking for a place to hold his float- ing crap (dice) game, and his girlfriend Adelaide. Adelaide is a showgirl who wants Nathan to give up the dice and get married. Nathan tries to hold a game in a nearby mission.

The University News Arts & March 25,1998 7 Wild Bacon, radiant Redgrave, lackluster Linklater By F.S. Contributing Writer Wild Things (wide release) The problem with most recent examples of film noir is that they've been entirely too earnest, attempting to emulate the classics of the forties and fifties without realizing that the r: . \ SB movie reviews conventions of the genre can seem ludicrous now if they're played entirely straight. John McNaughton's new picture skillfully avoids that pitfall by present- ing its labyrinthine plot—about a high- school counselor (Matt Dillon) who's accused of rape by a rich-brat student (Denise Richards) and her dirt-poor op- posite (Neve Campbell)—just slightly over-the-top, so that it becomes both a wonderfully complex thriller and a wickedly funny takeoff on just that kind of film. Steamy and seductive, twisted and kinky, brightly lit but darkly humorous, it's the rare American flick that dares to be different, deliberately undercutting the...

8 March 25,1998 The University News "Feat Y Students ponder life after graduation and beyond By Joe Cristofaro Assistant News Editor The question of life after 1845 E. Northgate Drive is one which routinely plagues graduating students each year. While some students opt to attend graduate school immediately after leaving the University of Dallas, others choose to brave the job market and search for full-time employment. Although most seniors have considered their options, many minds are still undecided about what their plans hold for next year. Senior Alex Halisky confidently stated that he was in the process of exploring different opportunities. // The office helps students learn about steps in planning for a new career. The key is planning ahead for the future. There are no big secrets to this process — Jerry Alexander, Career Development Director // "I have options," said Halisky. "Most of them are business re- lated, such as mortgage or investment companies." Other students are t...

The University News March 25,1998 9 ' he other bible p.- By Rav Khirallah Features Editor The 1998 edition of the Princeton Review Internship Bible is finally available. It contains brief listings of over 100,000 internships in the United States and abroad. The rating for each internship is based on categories such as selectivity, compensation, location, field and deadline.The book is well worth the $25 price as it contains a wealth of information on what internships are available and the best ways to get them. There is also approximately 85 brief profiles on famous interns from Spike Lee to Rush Limbaugh and extensive in- terviews from former interns like Jodie Foster and George Plimpton. Foster's interview doesn't exactly make the nobody feel like he will one day be a star like her. She says, "1 had written a piece [for Esquire] that [the magazine's editorial advisor] had solicited from me about going to college. This was in 1980 as I was about to graduate from high school.

10 March 25,1998 Commentary The University News No room for isolationism Victor Godinez During the opening remarks of the M.E. Bradford Debate held Wednesday, March 18, Dr. Thomas West remarked that the Founders' conception of government included the belief that an established government is required to protect only the rights of its own citizens. When I ap- proached West during the subsequent reception and asked him to elaborate, he responded that while it is certainly desirable for a nation to seek to protect the rights, as enumerated in the Decla- ration of Independence, of oppressed peoples in other countries, it is by no means required. West further com- mented that intervention requiring the endangerment of American security to protect rights in other nations should certainly be avoided. I must disagree. If the Founders believed the United States should be required to protect the rights of only its own citizens, then why did we fight the Civil War? West ar- gued in his debate t...

The University News Commentary March 25,1998 11 University News Editorial Board Daniel Kennelly Aaron Deacon John Campbell Opinions expressed in The University News are those of the writer of the ar- ticle or of the editorial board. They are not necessarily those of The University News or the University of Dallas. Editorial Athletics plan scores Athletic Director DickStrockbine announced the five-year plan for University athletics earlier this month and should be com- mended on a job well done. The first reaction of many, no doubt, will be to question the wisdom of establishing football at UD. Certainly this is a concern (one to which the powers that be do not fail to address), but it is not one which rests at the heart of the five-year plan. Surely all sides of the "football question" will make their cases known, and hopefully a prudent decision will be made. But beyond football, the University now has a clear agenda of where it wants its athletic department to be and what steps wi...

The difference was that this year with teh sub-zero temperatures, the winners were those with the warmest togas. The winner, as far as points go, was driven to glory by captain Lesley Katel- Iierakis, the undaunted drivers of Sarah Nerbun,Tesha Hermann and the size of Jason Lewis. Yet victory was still uncertain until the last event in which Anthony Dae- fdurff stole Joe Hughes'chair and left Joe on the floor and Anthony forever honored.

The sports day is a precursor to the International Day scheduled to be held Wednesday on the mall and in the Haggarfoyer. In the past, these athletic tournaments have been known to be very intense and competitive. Aggressive teams and sunny weather aided in making this year's games uphold that tradition. Originally, five sports were to make the lineup of events, including bas- ketball, tennis, badminton, volleyball and soccer. Only soccer and basketball made the cut, though, due to those being the main sports of interest. A huge turnout showed at Sunday's soccertournament, which proved to be a classic'grand finale'of the weekend....
