Ranking the best colleges in the land (CPS)- In what has become a traditionally volatile issue, U.S. New & World Report ranked Swarthmore College and Yale University as the country's best campuses. The magazine, seeking to defuse much of the anger and resentment that has accompanied its efforts to rank colleges in the past, this year attempted to find the best schools by conducting a poll of college presidents and deans. Predictably, reaction varied among schools, said Matthew Tucker, spokesman for the magazine. "If you're ranked, then you're happy. If you're not ranked, you're not happy." The results were divided by types of schools. The educators said the best "national universities" were Yale, Princeton, Harvard, California Institute of Technology and Duke. The best "regional liberal arts colleges" were St. Mary's College of Maryland, Transylvania University of Kentucky, Ohio Wesleyan and Southwestern University of Texas.

LOVE ROB Definitely a class act by Rob Prindle I've been depressed lately. It seems that I'm almost dangerously close to graduating. Thai means that I have to find something to do with my life. Thoughts like these make me sweat. They are not pretty, not pretty at all. I'm sure there are just a thousand things thai I'm qualified to do. Unfortunately few of these talents are actually marketable outside of the wonderful world of college, so I figure why not teach? What the heck? Teaching at the college level sounds like a loi of fun. You get summers off, if you want them off. And well, teaching doesn't seem all that different from being a student. I have compiled a short summary of my teaching philosophies and now wish to share them with you. Perhaps you can give me some advice or maybe talk me out of it. "Who knows? Oh before I start let me just say that I've got nothing against profs who do any of the things that I wouldn't do. These are merely things that I would do a little d...

Editorial Listening for your views: How good is Behrend? Each year Behrend turns away more and more students. Last year around 10,000 applicants named Behrend as a choice on their Penn State application. These students were trying to become members of a freshmen class with roughly 500 spaces. At the same time, a well-known book (How to get an Ivy League Education at a State School Price) compares Behrend to Dartmouth. It seems fair to say that while Behrend continues to improve, the school is not yet in a league with Dartmouth. Still, standards are getting higher and improvements are taking place. With all this in mind, The Collegian decided to take a look at how members of the Behrend community look at the college. Beyond our ' overage, we'd be interested in hearing from you. Has Behrend lived up to your expectations? Exceeded them? How would you have responded to The Collegian's poll? We'd like to hear from you and the floor is open. The Collegian won't attempt to sensationa...

I've looked in the yellow pages and there are three places listed, but I don't know anything about them. Signed, Possibly Pregnant and Scared Dear Possibly Pregnant, I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't try to answer your question.

It is recommended that you come in after a missed or late period, but don't delay. Your options become more limited after the first...

/ Tf Missing Pieces Mark looks for meaning in tabloid journalism by Mark Owens A few weeks ago I wrote about the Soviet Union and their problem with pesky UFO's and space aliens that zap children and drink all their vodka. So I was interested in last Friday' s top story by a major supermarket tabloid, "Soviets Take UFO Captain Prisoner!" This tabloid, by the way, ranks right up there with the National StarPeopleEnquirer, the Pulsar, the Evening Carnage and International Slime. These are the paragons of journalism that constantly warn us about dandruff causing hair loss, bad breath, cancer, and its use in making Cheez Whiz. They also run informative stories about brain fuel and killer parrots. I kid you not about the killer parrots. The affore-mentioned tabloid ran a story about this Charles Bronson-type bird that killed an elderly couple. Can you picture this? You: Polly want a cracker? Parrot: Polly want an important internal organ. *Sauawk* Anyway, I decided to check o...

Behrend_'s Matchbox Players will present Talk Radio by Mike Gettleman Collegian Staff Writer This semester's production at Behrend's Studio Theatre starts next week as "Talk Radio" hits the stage. It's a play by Eric Bogosian which is loosely based upon the life of Alan Berg, a radio talk show host in Denver. He was extremely popular despite his rudeness and his propensity for hanging up on his callers. His on-air antics resembled those of Howard Stern or Morton Downey, Jr. Berg, for years, received high ratings. He also was severely criticized. In 1983, Berg was killed by a Neo-Nazi organization who was strongly offended by the content of his show. This is questioned by some, however easy to believe. This is Buckwald's fourth production at Behrend and his most ambitious by far. "It's an intense play with a comic and dramatic mix." This also a new experience since he's working with a 25 member cast, considerably larger than in previous efforts. "Talk Radio" is a unique play ...

Racism accusations sweep colleges (CPS)- On September 27, about 20 University of Massachusetts-Amherst students burst through the back door of the offices of the Collegian, the campus paper, to sit in until David Mark, the paper's top editor, would agree to resign. The students were enraged by Mark's September 19 editorial recounting his summer trip to the Israeli-ruled West Bank of the Jordan River. The United Nations observers posted there, Mark wrote, struck him as "sickeningly pro-Palestinian." Mark ultimately refused to resign. Halfway across the country, a Michigan State University student in a dorm lounge spied a small statue cast from a 100-yearold design depicting George Washington's horse's groom. The features of the groom, who was black, were sculpted in a manner that many would consider racist today. The student, unaware of the statue design's age, complained to his resident adviser, who urgently relayed the complaint to the dorm director. Dorm director Rob Wei...

I Entertainment _j A salute to rock classics Gary Nolan climbs Zeppelins stairway to success Editor's note: Critic Gary Nolan continues his examination of some of the music world's greatest contributions. This is the second installment in a five-part series. by Gary Nolan Collegian Staff Writer As the wrapper is peeled back on a Led Zeppelin album, the blues power and energy soon to fill the room is sure to wake the neighbors and shake the walls a little. Led 7eppelin's fourth album barely gets the nod over their first album as the pinnacle of the group's releases. This album is unquestionably one of the best ever assembled. Denoted by the several names of Led Zeppelin IV, Zoso, Untitled, and Runes, it was released in 1971 to a highest chart position of number two. The reason for the discrepancy in the album name lies in the mind of group members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant! they, by' the; point of release in 1971, had acquired a rather large following. The group feared th...

Janet Jackson steals her brother's spotlight "Rhythm Nation" continues Jackson's climb to independant success by Christi Luden Collegian Staff Writer A mixture of rap music, pop, a touch of harder rock, and interludes describes Janet Jackson's new release Rhythm Nation. The album, produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and dedicated to her mother Katherine, is quite different from Jackson's first release, Control. ¦ Rhythm Nation begins with an eerie interlude (a spoken sequence) that suggests we should strive toward a world of unity. The majority of the songs are geared toward this theme. "Rhythm Nation" talks about getting rid of color lines and working to unite. The following song, "State of the World," talks about a teenage mother and a homeless little boy, along with the spread of drugs and crime in our nation. Then, the thread continues through the tape with songs such as "The Knowledge" and "Livin' in a World (They Didn't Make)." Although Jackson stresses the problem...

Marx rocks Civic Center by Christi Luden Collegian Staff Writer Dressed in tight black jeans, a black fringe jacket, and red cowboy boots, Richard Marx put on a great show for all those who saw him on October 26 at the Erie Civic Center. Marx' opening act was Henry Lee Summer, and he did a great job getting the audience psyched up. Summer is an extremely hyper, John Cougar-like singer. He played seven songs each from his first and current albums. Some of the more popular were "I Wish I Had a Girl," "Just Another Day," and "Hey Baby." He also sang the Rolling Stones' hit, "Satisfaction." Summer got the audience up and clapping by jumping down into the aisles and dancing, in his words, "not very well, but like I want to." After Henry Lee's introduction and a short intermission, the moment everyone had waited for arrived. The band members came rushing out on stage playing, "Too Late To Say Goodbye" from Marx' recent album, Repeat Offender. Then Richard Marx came walking out to ce...
