The Rambler January 27, 1999 « 5 Women's basketball r falls to Texas Lutheran Kerri Clark Staff writer After the abrupt resignation of head coach Vicki Nelms, the women's basketball team went into Saturday's game not knowing what to expect. The Rams' new head coach Byron Carter led Wesleyan into Saturday's game with determination. In the first half intense pressure tilled the air as the players anxiously listened to Coach Carter. It was time for tip off and the-first five circled around each other on the court holding hands. To start off the game, Wesleyan executed well enough to gain a quick lead over Texas Lutheran. Texas Lutheran gained and maintained a lead, and by the end of the first half Wesleyan trailed by eight, 40-32. . This did not stop the women from trying. The sec- ond half was intense, with both teams battling for the lead. Unfortunately for the Rams, Texas Lutheran main- tained the lead in the second half, winning with a score of .81-62.

4 The Rambler February 3, 1999 r Early church fathers are an inspiration for article by McDonald Blair Potter Staff writer Dr. Bruce McDonald, adjunct professor of religion, wrote an arti- cle published in a new book, the Historical Handbook of Major Biblical Interpreters, about Theodore of Mopsuestia, a believer in the literal interpretation of the Bible. Theodore, then the bishop of Mopsuestia, was one'of the founders of the School of Antioch in Syria, a school of thought based on the belief that the Bible should be inter- preted literally. Theodore is well known for being an extremist, one of the early leaders of literal inter- pretation, and is an "architect of taking the scripture literally," according to McDonald. The School of Antioch was founded as opposition to the School of Alexandria, a school of thought founded in Egypt in the 200's that frequently used allegories as tools for interpreting the Bible. Theodore of Mopsuestia was part of McDonald's doctoral research at the ...

6 The Rambler February 3, 1999 Greek classic plays at Stage West Matthew Smith Staff writer Euripides' Medea, playing Stage West through Feb. 6, is a funny thing. At least it's as funny as a play culminating in the murder of children can be. Still, when a play almost 2,500 years old has such relevance to modern times, it's both disconcerting and oddly reassuring. The presentation, somehow balanc- ing respectful adherence to the source material while adding a number of mod- ern-day touches, contains scenes seemingly ripped from today's head- lines..Social climber Jason (Chuck Huber) dumps wife Medea (Deborah Kirby) for an attractive younger woman to further his political ambitions. The media hound Medea like a pack ■of rabid wolves. A sleazy lawyer, repre- senting Medea at her audience with King Creon (Jackie Cabe), plays like those ambulance-chasing goofballS who adver- tise on daytime TV. The whole Medea/Jason breakup reminds one of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, or numerous other cel...

There are whole business industries that rake in a fortune from it. And all of us are affected by it.

For consumer America, candy and card makers, jewelry stores and flower shops rack up huge sales volume on this, one of the biggest retail shopping clays in America. For example, during Super Bowl Sunday, Victoria's Secret,had I million hits on its web-site--the largest single day of hits in Internet history.
