I ' •' ' -vv,- ,"W.- timff 8 October 19, 2005 Entertainment The Rambler Concert celebrates ghost's birthday Colleen Burnie 'entertainment editor When the holidays roll around, along with festive dec- orations and tasty food, we all expect to hear holiday music. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the familiar carols ringing through the air, but few people would expect a Halloween concert. That's exactly what Dr. Bryan English has decided to put together for this year's fall wind ensem- ble concert. The Oct. 25 production is actually a birthday party for the "Ghost of Martin Hall," he said. "Gomer, as we like to call him - he's sort of our 'Phantom of the Opera,"' said English. Martin Hall, Wesleyan's recently renovated perform- ance venue, contains 600 chairs, 599 of which are blue, and one is green. "The Ghost of Martin Hall's green seat is reserved for him at all performances, so watch where you sit," said English. Many legends surround the existence of this chair, and the...

Students, faculty, honored alumni and guests gathered to mingle for cocktail hour before Gary Cumbie, vice president of advancement, kicked off the dinner hour with a welcome to all who had come to celebrate the honorees. The Distinguished Alumni Award is given to a Wesleyan graduate whose achievements have distinguished him/her in a broad sense. This year's recipient was Margaret Parker, a Wesleyan graduate from the class of 1931. Parker's achievements in conservation saved many Fort Worth parks from being used for other purposes. She was instrumental in founding the Fort •Worth Nature Center and Refuge, which is now one of the largest city-owned nature cen- ters. Along with helping to found the center, P...

Another Brick Laid Donor walkway adds 201 bricks Whitney Fowler EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The university's "donor brick walkway," featuring more than 2,000 bricks engraved with text at the front steps of the library, is a fairly new tradition for the 115-year-old institution, but one that is well on its way to last. Started in 1992, the brick walkway became a way to honor donors who gave $120 to the university's annual fund for three years. Donors could then choose to engrave up to three lines of text on a brick to be permanently installed in the walkway, i "In the past, gifts made to the annual fund (The Wesleyan Fund) supported general operating expenses," said Gina Phillips, director of The Wesleyan Fund. "Now, all gifts to The Wesleyan Fund help fund institutional scholarships." , The program's guidelines changed a few times over the years. Now, for a one-time gift of $200, an individual can receive a brick. Also, graduating seniors can pur- chase a brick for a special price of $100. "It'...

Stay motivated. Make personal notes for yourself. Your bathroom mirror or scattered periodically throughout your planner are great places for these. Find your inspiration, and learn from it. Realize your moti- vation, and maintain it. Sure, it sounds really corny, but you'd be surprised how many of the upperclassmen you interact with everyday already do this. One of the best things I can share about getting through the toughest part of a semester and through col- lege in general is to just take time to breathe. Exhale. Relax every chance you get. Do your best to spend at least half an hour by your- self everyday away from any textbooks or laptops. When it gets to be too much, just remember - stress is point- less. Everyone's freshman year is an adventure, but with p...

With the Rams flying high in the Red River Athletic Conference, two wins over the weekend would guarantee them a playoff spot and put them in the driver's seat for a first or second seeding.

?5. 8 October 26, 2005 Entertainment The Rambler Shawn R. Poling Rfsake tiapifc The current bandwagon in Hollywood to hop on is filming a remake, especially if you consider recent horror movies. Distribution companies are hoping ideas that worked before will work again, and so far they're right. Recent successes include War of the Worlds, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Amityville Horror. These successful films added differ- """"""""' ent elements to the original story- lines like big special effects, attractive actors and some added scares. The latest horror remake to come out is The Fog, starring Tom Welling (Smallville), Maggie Grace (LOST) and Selma Blair (Hellboy, The Sweetest Thing). The film follows Welling and Grace (a reunited couple) and Blair, a radio host whose son is left at home while she works around the clock. The town is a happy place until it is taken over by a fog that hides violent spirits. These spir- its control the fog and have returned to the town to sett...

The journal, which provides a place for facul- ty, educators and graduate students to discuss important issues relevant to their field of study, published last in 2000 following the death of its chief editor, Dr. Ron Reed.

8 November 2, 2005 The Rambler Scapino! offers Italian-style laughs Marla Jo Kelly STAFF WRITER What do you get when you add oversized sausage links, men dressed as women and more than a dozen Wesleyan actors? The answer is the theater department's latest production, Scapino!, a comedy by Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale. Scapino! is written in the tradition of the Italian Commedia dell'Arte and inspired by Moliere's classic play Les Fourberies de Scapin. Scapino! is set at the picturesque seaport in Naples, Italy, and is the story of two young men who fall in love with women of whom their fathers do not approve. With the help of their crafty servant Scapino, the two men defy their fathers to be with those they love. Along the way, Scapino is helped and hindered by several whacky characters, all played by a cast of Wesleyan thespians. The title role is played by sophomore theater major Max Marquez. Marquez, a theater technician, will be making his first appearance onstage as the clever ser...
