When asked what made them choose to play on Wesleyan's golf team, they said it was mainly for the experience of playing on different courses, learning different golf tactics and new skills, and to play in good weather instead of the constant drizzle that golfers have to put up with in England. Golf Coach Bob Comett said that they were all playing very well, are good competitors, and that he is enjoying their company because they are used to playing in bad weather. Cornett said, "There's an art to playing in bad weather." Recently Texas Wesleyan University won the 1997 Oklahoma Intercollegiate Golf Tou...

Rhythmic African drums and chanting envelop the senses. An atmosphere of exploration and adventure Can instantly captivate visitors to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's newest exhibit. I expected the exclusive southwestern showing of A Slave Ship Speaks: The Wreck of Henrietta Marie to be enlightening, but depressing. Some displays depict a tragic tale of human misery.

POUT FORCE US TO IEME 100 WTH THE AUPNW Letters to the editor Racism As we embrace the coming of a new century with the opportunities and possibilities it holds for each of us, we must not lose sight of the social problems still remaining to be resolved. One such problem is racism. Racism is just as alive today as it was at the turn of the twentieth century. The only difference is the shifting of color from black to red, especially in the way we have made Native American Indians mascots for our sports franchises. What social outrage could we expect if we renamed the Atlanta Braves the Atlanta Cotton Pickers, whose mascot would be a black person dressed in plantation clothing and carrying a cotton sack? In the spirit of rigorous honesty, is there really any difference in the way we portray the Native American to the man- ner in which we portrayed the African American ...
