Is the Dream still alive in America? [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Is the Dream still alive in America? Live From Guyana AYODELE JONES "I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of the creed—we hold these truths to be selfevident, that all men are created equal." As citizens of the world, we all recognize these words as the hopes, dreams, and prophecies of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Every year around this time we are reminded of his dream, a dream which has not yet eradicated the walls of bigotry and racism. Of course there have been great strides in achieving eqrality for all, yet these great accolades have been accompanied by some major setbacks. These relapses or rather regressions remind and alert us that we are not accomplishing the tasks at hand. This summer James Byrd Jr., a 49 year old man, was chained to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged to his death on the rural roads outside of Jasper, Texas. Matthew Shepard, a 21 ye...

Clinton is confident at the State of the Union Address [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Clinton is confident at the State of the Union Address The Lobster and the music to the dance of life MIKE PERKINS Last Tuesday, history was made Bill Clinton became the first President to give a State of the Union address to the same congress that voted to impeach him. The very fact that Clinton gave his address testifies to his confidence in his future and sense of continuity. Most Republicans and many Democrats wanted Clinton to postpone the address or even deliver a hand-written report (the constitution doesn't say the President has to give an address). They felt that it wouldn't be proper for him to speak to them, but I feel that they, not Clinton, would have been uncomfortable with the situation. The address, I feel, was marred by the Republican altitudes and the overhanging cloud of impeachment. Last year, the standing ovation Clinton received when announced by the sergeant-at-arms was over two minutes long. This year it was far shorter, with most of the Republicans c...

MLK Jr. Lifted Burden from white folks, too [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

MLK Jr. Lifted Burden from white folks, too By Leonard Pitts Jr. Knight-Ridder Newspapers Somehow it's not quite Martin Luther King Day if you don't get at least one Klan rally in protest. Sure enough, the Klan staged a demonstration a few days ago on the steps of the Indiana statehouse. It was the usual pathetic affair. Thirteen losers with a raggedy sound system yelling "White power!" to an audience of about 500 cops and 50 protesters in 12-degree weather. Their rhetoric, predictably, fell on largely disinterested ears. But it occurs to me that there's at least one part of the Klan creed that mirrors the beliefs of more than a few white Americans. Meaning the part that sees King and his holiday as something purely for blacks. It's something one hears white folks say occasionally - and not just those guys in the pointy white dunce caps, either. Late in 1997, white parents in Riverside, Calif., were up in arms over plans to name a majority-white high school after King. He ...

"South Park" Doesn't Deserve Criticism [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

"South Park" Doesn't Deserve Criticism By Richard Parker The Crimson White The University of Alabama What's the most popular show on television today? If you answered anything other than "South Park," you may not be in the loop. For those of you who don't know, "South Park" has been the hottest thing to hit television since "The Simpsons," yet it is beginning to draw a lot of fire from people who misunderstand the show's humor or haven't even seen an episode. Many people complain that "South Park" is inappropriate for children. Well, no joke! That's why they have the really big "TV-MA" symbol on screen before the show starts along with a disclaimer that the show may be inappropriate for some viewers. It is troubling that department stores are selling Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman dolls to kids. Even more disturbing is that 8-year-olds know all of the characters including Mr. Hat, the gay hand puppet of Mr. Garrison the school teacher. But should the show's creators, Trey ...

Business school grads face uncertain future [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Business school grads face uncertain future By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange CHICAGO (CPX) - Students walking out of business school these days are learning the hard way that what goes up must come down, including fat-cat salaries, signing bonuses and any expectations of getting them. In the past few years, newly minted MBAs have had it good. Make that really good. Starting salaries for 1997 graduates of the top 50 business schools as ranked by U.S. News & World Report averaged $64,550, with graduates of the most elite schools getting offers of more than $80,000. And that was just the beginning. Many new graduates doubled their salaries by negotiating a signing bonus, a guaranteed bonus after one year of service, reimbursement for tuition and a company car. It's a gravy train that many b-school students and administrators say is chugging at less than full steam. Despite reports from firms insisting that hiring levels will remain about the same as last year, ...

Michigan student, 20, dies in 3-story fall [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Michigan student, 20, dies in 3-story fall By Peggy Walsh-Sarnecki Knight-Ridder Newspapers DETROIT- For the fourth time in four months, a young person has died after drinking alcohol near a Michigan college campus. Adriane Allen, a 20-year-old Ferris State University sophomore from Williamston, Mich., fell from her third-floor apartment around midnight Thursday and died Friday. Big Rapids police said Allen had been drinking. Police said they are investigating the accident and how Allen obtained the alcohol. She was under the legal drinking age of 21. Allen was alone in her bedroom in a downtown Big Rapids apartment building that is popular with students. Around midnight, a person in another room heard crashing glass, ran into Allen's bedroom and discovered that she had fallen to the sidewalk, police said.

Quiz-show addict goes to head of class [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Quiz-show addict goes to head of class College Press Exchange LONDON (CPX)- The things some people will do to get on television. Hoping for a chance to appear on a popular game show called "University Challenge," Lance Haward, a 62-year-old self-described quiz-show addict, recently enrolled in Open University, a nonresidential college in England for adult students of all ages. Haward said a love for learning also motivated his decision to study classical Greek. "Let's just say I was killing two birds with one stone," he told the Associated Press. Haward, an education law consultant, has appeared on about a dozen game shows, including "Mastermind" and "Sale of the Century." "I like to avoid the more vulgar game shows, and 'University Challenge' was about the only one left I really wanted to go on, especially aji I had missed out on it when I was a student," said Haward, who graduated in 1957, five years before the show went on the air. Haward handily made the Open Universit...

Court says VMI successful in assimilation of female students [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Court says VMI successful in assimilation of female students College Press Exchange LEXINGTON, Va. (CPX) - The Virginia Military Institute is off the hook for now. A federal appeals court ruled Jan. 15 that the nation's oldest statesupported military college has successfully assimilated women into its student body. U.S. District Court Judge Jackson L. Kiser dismissed a 9-year-old lawsuit against VMI's males-only admissions policy. Kiser ruled that the state and institute have "successfully formulated, adopted and implemented a plan" that gives women equal access and treatment as guaranteed by the \4th Amendment. Kiser said the Justice Department, which brought the suit against the school, has filed no objections to the measures VMI has taken to incorporate women into its Corps of Cadets. The department has 30 days to respond to the ruling. In June 1996, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered VMI to accept women or give up its state funding. The next year, the institute admitted ...

New GI Bill would pay full tuition [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

New GI Bill would pay full tuition College Press Exchange WASHINGTON (CPX) - A congressional commission is proposing a new GI Bill that would pay full tuition and all book costs at any college for four years if the recipient agrees to spend the same amount of time in the military. The Commission on service members and Veterans Transition Assistance said the new plan would replace the existing program, which covers only 36 months of educational costs - capped at $528 a month - for military personnel who have served three years on active duty. Service members must pay $1,200 to take advantage of the current system, but under the new plan they wouldn't have to pay any initial fees. In addition to full tuition and books, recipients also would get a monthly stipend of $400. An estimated 70 percent of all active personnel meeting the new proposal's requirements would take advantage of it, compared with the 33.7 percent who participate in the existing program, a spokesman for the c...

LSU Assistant Professor claims Associate Dean spanked her College Press Exchange BATON ROUGE, La. (CPX) - An assistant professor at Louisiana State University has filed suit against the school, charging that an associate dean pulled her onto his lap and spanked her while chanting, "You're a bad girl." Another associate dean, Ronald Garay, confirmed the accusation Sunday, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported. Dianne H. Piper, an assistant professor of mass communication, claims the Jan. 12 incident happened while she was talking to Richard Nelson, an associate dean of the university's Manship School of Mass Communications, about a chance for her to lecture for a year at Indiana University. Piper, 43, said the conversation took a turn for the worse as she tried to defend the length of lime she would be gone from her LSU post. Piper's lawsuit alleges that Nelson spanked her while Garay "sat idly by, watching and laughing." Garay told the Chronicle that was "not at all t...

Princeton President wants to end Nude Olympics [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Princeton President wants to end Nude Olympics By Christine Tatum College Press Exchange PRINCETON, N.J. (CPX) - The "Nude Olympics," a long-standing tradition at Princeton University in which students run naked through the semester's first snowfall, should stop before someone gets killed, the university's president says. In a letter printed in the student newspaper. President Harold Shapiro said the university is considering banning the event after six students were hospitalized with severe alcohol poisoning and four more were treated at the university's student health center following the latest raucous running on Jan. 8. "This past weekend's experience provided a grave reminder of the serious risks that the Nude Olympics pose to our students' health and safety, largely because of the excessive and indiscriminate use of alcohol," Shapiro wrote. "Moreover, several of the college masters report behavior that was truly disgraceful and unacceptable." The decades-old traditio...

Diaries of absent atheist O'Hair headed for auction [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Diaries of absent atheist O'Hair headed for auction By Paul Duggan _The Washington Post AUSTIN - Two generations ago, when Madalyn Murray O'Hair helped vanquish formal prayer from public schools and became what Life magazine called "the most hated woman in America," she reveled in the animosity. A loud, combative woman, a devout disbeliever in God, she rarel y missed a chance to ridicule religion, often on her radio show heard on scores of stations. These days, though, long after obscurity has enveloped O'Hair and her organization, American Atheists Inc., the former Baltimore housewife and U.S. Supreme Court litigant remains noteworthy for one reason: her strange absence. More than three years have passed since O'Hair, then 76, and her two closest allies, both family members, vanished from their Austin home. Are they dead? Are they lounging in the tropics? God only knows. Adding to the mystery is the fact that after the three disappeared, groups affiliated with American Athe...

Advocates ask Holocaust centers to include disabled [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Advocates ask Holocaust centers to include disabled Los Angeles Times OAKLAND, Calif. Last July, Sid Wolinsky got a taste of how difficult it will probably be to gain greater acknowledgment for disabled Holocaust victims, when he and Patricia Kirkpatrick, director of development at Disability Rights Advocates, visited Yad Vashem. the massive Holocaust memorial outside Jerusalem. Wolinsky, the litigation director for the international rights organization, argues that Yad Vashem's depiction of the murder of people with disabilities at the hands of the Nazis "seriously understates the issue and is historically inaccurate." Yad Vashem Vice Chairman Johanan Bein wrote to Wolinsky after his visit, acknowledging the disabled dead. But Bein called that mass murder a "forerunner" to the Shoah-Holocaust and said that his center "b y law. is dedicated to the remembrance of the Shoah-Holocaust." uefined as including Jewish victims alone. The Oakland organization got a slightly better re...

King honored with day of prayer, fun and volunteer work By Lena H. Sun The Washington Post WASHINGTON - Around the region and the country Monday, people celebrated the birthday of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. with solemn speeches, prayerful reflection and volunteerism, as well as fun and games. Last Friday would have been King's 70th birthday.

Methodists take vow against church ban at gay nuptials [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 21 January 1999

Methodists take vow against church ban at gay nuptials By Rene Sanchez The Washington Post SACRAMEN'I'O - In defiance of (he United Methodist Church, nearly 100 of its ministers gathered here Saturday and gave an elaborate public blessing to the marriage of Jeanne Barnett and Elbe Charlton, a lesbian couple whose union is prohibited by the church's canons. The unusual event at once an angry protest rally and a joyful wedding was the latest illustration of how deeply divided the Methodist Church has become over homosexuality and same-sex marriages. Its 8.5 million members make it the nation's third-largest Christian denomination. "Nothing quite like this has ever happened in public before for us," said Karen Humphrey, a church member who helped organize the ceremony, which was staged inside a downtown convention center here. "I hope you can see there's a lot of love for us," Charlton said after the ceremony. "The closet is dark and damp and unhealthy. I hope...
