Although there have been no reported assaults against men or
women inthe parking lots this year," Sergeant Duncan said, "Iam
sure there have been assaults against women that justhaven'tbeen

Only two cases ofassault against women have been reported at
UCI inthe past two vears. According to Duncan,this evidence of
good crime prevention makes it impossible to receive additional
funding for increased protection.
But Karen Bjorneby, co-director of the UCI Women's Center,
stressed, "We can't just wait for some violence to occur before we
get more protection. That is a fatalistic attitude."
"There mayonly be a 2%crime rateagainst women,but ifyouare

The UCI police does provide an escort service for females after

However, the woman must be alone since the officers believe two

Ifthere are other things which the officer must attend to, the escort
service will take a very low priority. Theofficer may never make it

Duncan stressed that the escort service is "not a taxi service.
We're not going to haul people from one place to another."
Currently, 31% of all reported crimes occur in the parking lots,

City lobby
needs ASpush
A UCI student lobby annex directors' proposal to establish a
municipal lobby in Irvine is a good avenue to initiate interaction
between students and the city. Unless the directors make some
definite plans to gather student participation, however,the idea will
remain just an idea.
So far. Annex Directors Nick Roman and Dan McCarthy have
kept the burden of creating a municipal lobby on their own
shoulders Both directors claim they'd like to see more students at
Irvine city council meetings, but they have done nothing to
publicize the meetings or to encourage student input into them.

councilmembershave expressed interest in student
city activities.
But the student lobby, with AS, has to to make the first move.
UC Student Regent
must act for students
Every UC student lost the chance to receive a $5 1reduction in
registration fees nextyear because of amisconception onthe partof
the student regent.
UC Davis law student Michael Salerno, the only student with
full voting priveleges on the UC Board of Regents, abstained from
votingat lastmonth's regentsmeeting when the issuecame uptocut
the $5 1 from students' fees. The vote deadlocked at 6-6, and the
motion was defeated.
By not breaking the tie, Salerno failed in his primary duty as
student regent to represent students.
Salerno reasoned thatifhe voted it would havebeen a conflict of
interest since he would personally benefit from a fee reduction.
Salerno also seems to feel that he wouldbe a hypocrite for voting
on this issue in light of the fact he has criticized the regents for
voting on matters which would favorably help their businesses.
Butthe other regents are notsupposed to represent specialinterests
when they vote on University matters.
The student regent, though, is representing a special interest:
students. If Salerno does not represent student interests in the
regents, then it is pointless to have a student regent.
With the way things stand now, UC President David Saxon has
promised to get the feesreduced at anothermeeting.Ultimately the
state must agree to grant $6.7 million dollars to the University's
Educational Opportunity Program. Officials have said that they
are optimistic for a fee reduction in the near future.
By that time the student regentmust be willingtovote for students

Letters to the editor
Blade has
Dear Editor,
The recent article by one Jim
Parker is a reflection of the indifference and ignorance inherent
onthe UCIcampus. Mr.Parker
has set himself up as judge and
jury, and passed judgement on
the relevancy of the Blade. As a
black student at Irvine Iwas
glad to see the advent of the
Bladebec&useit was relevant to
the needs of minorities. Mr.
Parker seems to think that it is
no longer relevant because of
the fact that the Blade has not
met specific requirements in its
contract. His biggest complaint
is that there will be monetary
waste if there is continuedfunding of the Blade. I
wish to point
out that since AS fundsfinance
the Blade, the minority students
collectively pay for it out of
their reg. fees.Mr.Parker could
only understand the importance
of the Blade only if he could
place himselfina minority position but thisis quite impossible
since it is obvious he is not
aware of the position he now
occupies. Furthermore, Mr.
Parker fails miserably as judge
and jury since he only sees the
superficial impairments of the
Blade, and not the problems
thatunderlie itscontinued existence on this campus.

AS 'pawns
A simple fact seems to have
been overlooked by the AS
out of their conscienceness by
the emotionally supercharged
rhetoric of the particular pressure group involved: The attacks did not take place on the
UCIcampus. Thefact that they
didn't shouldend directASUCI
involvement in the matter.
Otherwise AS council will be
obliged to begin posting rewards anytime acrime against a
UCI student takes place anywhere.
It is observed by this closet
racist that more Chicanos are
assaulted and killed by other
Chicanos inEast Los Angeles
than there are Chicanos attending UCI. I
think the only thing
third world people have to fear
in a low crime area like Irvine,is
and screaming paranoia will
only cause friction where it
previously didn't exist.
On the other hand, the AS
government,which has allowed
itself to be manipulated by a
small group of students to support an irrelevent,personalized
issue, has something to fear;
Those of us who are tired of
having our funds squandered, of
having guilt assumed for something weare not guilty of, andof
a totallack of insight into what

hasn't even beenbuilt yet; who
knows what its final costs will
be (and you thought nuclear
energy was cheap.).
is the wishful notion that the
breeder will make America energy independent.In theory, the
breeder is supposed to double
its input of fuel in the form of
plutonium, in 2-3 years— this is
how the breeder would make
more fuel than it consumes.
However, the French experimental breeder proved that the
doubling time is not 2-3 years,
butrather on the order of 10-15
years. And when the French
built their first commercial
breeder, the doubling time increased to 60 years, an awful
long time to wait for fuel to
power just one more reactor.
Finally, time itself works against thebreeder.Let's assume
that construction of the Clinch
River breeder could be started
right now— in ten years, or by
1987, it would finally be completed. Then give them three
years to play around with it to
show that itworks. So in 1990,
the first commercial breeder is
put under construction(at acost
of probably around $5 billion)
and is not completed until the
year 2000 (this is, of course,
assuming very optimistic conditions which have not pervaded
the nuclear industry since the
early 1960's). So after investments on the order of, say, $8
billion, we finally get one, yes,
only one, breeder reactor which,
after 60 years (the year 2060)
finally produces enough fuel to
run another breeder. This is
the answer to the energy crisis?
Thisis about asmuch an answer
to the energy crisis as alcoholis
ananswer to curing a hangover.
Thank god Carter had the guts
toveto this 2.8billion dollarpile
of boondoggle technology; now
all that he needs todo is cut the
rest of the funding that is presently being wasted on nuclear
energy and spend it on sources

Lobby seeks involvement
by Beth Blenz
UCIStudent Lobby annexdirectors are currently
working to "get the snowball rolling" in Irvine
community involvement.
Co-director Nick Roman said he'd like to end
Irvine City councilmembers' poor opinion of
UCI students.
"I'dlike to see a group of students get together
to form a municipal lobby-an official arm representing UCI," he said. "Right now, councilmembers have the attitude that students don't
care aboutthe city. Actually, alotofthecouncil's
decisions affect students."
Dan McCarthy, the other lobby corrector,
saidhe andRoman are starting a campaign toget
student involvement in city decisions.
"We're campaigning to get students to register
to vote, and possibly to support a studentcandidate for city Council in the next elections. We
also have to get more students at these meetings
to see what's happening."
"But we'vegot problems gettingpeople involved.
UCI's like an island; just the structure of the
campus makes it separated from the community.
Irvine seems like it's way out there somewhere."
"The more representation we get, the more
exciting things we'll get back," McCarthy added.
McCarthy said the main problem students and
City Council could work on was the lack of lowcost housing inIrvine. Roman agreedand added
that issues like recreationfacilities andbike lanes
would also interest and affect students.
"Ithink the idea ofhaving a student candidateis
a great idea," Roman said. "8,000 students
would be behind him or her. But we have to be
careful we don't get some dork in there who's
goingto use the position asa mouthpiece to quack
off. That would only confirm the City's idea that
students are jerks who don't care."
Roman said he thought about running in the
March city elections,but said "forget it"onehour GOOD IDEA- Nick Roman, Student Lobby annex director

don't feel slighted because of
the direction the magazine has taken.
Memory can sometimes be akin to an exposed
nerve in one's tooth. One's tongue explores the
cavity with much enthusiasm—hoping to find
something, anything! more than a seemingly bottomless pit, where contact with any part of it
produces a sharp, stinging pain. So enough remembering. Say your thanks and apologize for
not being more enthusiastic about the magazine
now. There will be other geraniums to shake.
But still the pain persists.

A friend of mine and Iwere
talking the other day about the
nature ot music reviews. After
several minutes of increasingly
heated discussion, she told me
thatrecordreviews are merely a
matter of the reviewer saying
either "Buy It" or "Don't Buy

the rest of a review is actually
just a forum where the author
tries to impress his readers,satisfy his own ego, and attempts
to come to terms with any personality conflicts that may be
troubling him.
Ronnie Lane's contribution to
Rough Mix has been largely
ignoredby many simply because
they view Rough Mix basically
as a Townshend solo venture.
That Lane's presence on the
record should be regarded as
secondary if regarded at all is
entirely, unfair. Lane wrote or
co-wrote five of the cuts on the
album. Much like Townshend,
he has been experiencingsome

Thehard rock fans turn down their noses and thump away.The
Lawrence Welk crowdand pre-teensnodinappreciation. Some
admit they liked them once when they were really big. Professional music critics' reactions range from pitying laughter to
reserved exaltation. How can one brother and sister team
provoke such disparity?
When the Carpenters began performing in 1969 the critics
despised them. Yet the record-buying public threw them high
intothe upper reaches of success. Thegroup began topaper their
walls with goldrecords. They won three Grammys in the space
of two years.
Lately, however,the sandshave shifted, andthe new patternis
almost the exact opposite of the way it was in the beginning.
Whereonce the public adored them, now manypeople consider
their music old hat. The critics, on the other hand, are coming
around to seriously examine their music. There are still those
who insist,as Robert Hilburn did commenting on their Greek
Theater performance, that heir music contains "A lack of
challenge,lack ofdiscovery and surprise," buthe thengoes onto
say how much he likes their golden oldies number. Chuck
Thegze admits they have a "lasting creative force."
Nowhere is that force more evident thanintheir newest album,

poetics of the lyrics and comes to rest on lazy snippets of

a little less earnestness than used to be in all their hits.

fans to revel in.

Yet the manner in which Lane
handles his disappointment with

due to Lane's fantastic vocal
Thealbumcloses witha lovely
version of country singer Don
Williams' "Till The Rivers All

goes even farther and touches uponseductivejazz.The song was
recorded almost totally live with just a few overdubbings.
"Man Smart Woman Smarter" is a successful mishmash of
elements completely unexpected for the Carpenters. Harry
Belafonte did the song as a calypso, but it is here transformed
intoa roaringtwenties tease with chirping birds,conga, andsteel
drums. Halfway through, the vocals gave way to freewheeling

of originality. On side 1, there is "Don't Cry For Me,
Argentina' from the opera Evita.The opera tellsthelife story of
Maria Eva duarte Peron, the second wife of the Argentine
dictator Juan Peron. Over 150 people were involved in the
recording of the song for this album, including the L.A.
Philharmonic orchestra. Narrative operatice voices introduce
Karen's part which she sings with full-bodied,innocent clarity.

Side 2 ends with the bestsongin the album:"Calling Occupants
of Interplanetary Craft," the anthem of World Contact Day.
We first hear someone twirling aradio dial,and thenaconfused
disc jockey tries to take a song request from some mushmouthed aliens. Harmonious instrumentals swell up into
beautiful melodies out of which emerges Karen's crystal voice.
Violins mingle with a marching band. The mood is totally
removed from that Klaatu created with this song a while ago.
Passage is a triumph for the Carpenters. But perhaps it has
come too late to reach the generalpublic who by now are tuned
into newer groups.
The Carpenters seem to be oblivious to the tugs on their
popularity. The advertisements for their television special
promised, "A unique departure for the Carpenters,you'll have
to see it to believe it,"proving thatno matter what you think the
Carpenters are, no one else agrees with you.

Food stamps, thepoor and the Biltmore
by Marsha Noreen Honda
It was a gloomy overcast
morning but the air was warm
and muggy. On the southside of
Grand Avenue,Pershing Square
was already filled with old men
playing cards and feeding the
pigeons. Winos were drinking
from bottles wrapped in brown
paperbags, andgroups of young
men were lying in the grass
talking idly.
But directly across the street,
a top-hatted doorman in a gray
uniform was directing valet
parking while bellboys wearing
white gloves were busy piling
suitcases ontolarge metal carts.
Inside the Biltmore hotel, a sign
in the lobby listed the various
meetings and conferences. The
public hearing on the new food
stamp program was being held
in the Music Room. It would
have been more appropriate in
Pershing Square.
Several weeks ago, a welfare
rights worker had called me aboutthe hearing. She saidit was
part of a nationwide program
designed to get recommendations that will guide the drafting
of regulations governing thenew
food stamp program. I
attended a public hearing before, at the Real World.
She seemed slightly embarrasand the idea that thegovernment "This is the public hearing on sed for me, "...the public is, of

An elderly woman was at the
microphone speaking. Icould
barely see her head above the
small podium at the end of a
long table at the front of the
room. She had short,curly white
hair andtiny glassesperched on
the tip of her nose. Her hands
kept bumping into the microphone as she nervously turned
over the paper she was reading.
Icould not understandwhat she
was saying because she was
stuttering and rambling. Finally,
she looked up from her paper
and asked why the hearing was
beingheld at theBiltmore Hotel.
At the other end of the table
were three name cards. One
identified a short-haired manin
a gray suit as Ed Speshock,
Acting Chief of Programming.
With his elbows propped up on
the table and his chin cupped in
his hands, he stared blankly at
the audience. Another man in a
suit and tie was sitting with his
hands folded neatly in front of
him. His name card indicated
that he was Neil Freeman,
Regional Director of the Western Region.
With her head turned toward
the speaker's podium, Chris
Van Lenten, Special Assistant
to the Administrator, pickedup
the challenge, telling her microphone thatthe U.S. Department
of Agriculture had carefully
considered the location of the
'Idon't think we have to hold
public hearings in a shabby
place,do we?" she said, smiling
and shrugging her shoulders.
She asked the elderly woman
to submit a written copy of her
Before the next speaker could
get to the podium, a Chicana
woman walked up the aisle and
said that she had just "raised
hell at the front receptiondesk"
and that she had something to
say to the panel. She pointed to
Ms. Van Lenten and angrily
stated that she still wanted to
know why the Biltmore Hotel
waschosen as the location for a
public hearing on food stamps.
She said she was insulted by
Ms. Van Lenten's previous remark.
"Don't tell us about 'shabby
places.' We live there!" she
shouted, as she walkedback to
her seat. The audience began
A youngblack woman, wearing
jeans and a tee-shirt, stood up
and identified herself as a food
stamp recipient.
'Why didn't you tell us people?
How are we supposed to know
about this hearing? Igot no
notification in the mail with my
food coupons," she said, explaining that if a member of the
portation, she would not have
been able to attend. She apologized for her casual appearance,
But I
ain't got nothingnicer."
Aman's voice from the back of
the room asked why the hearing
could not be held at Los Angeles City College or at a local
high school. He said that the
Biltmore Hotel was not only
inaccessible but intimidating as
well. Although the room was
still half empty, it turned noisy
as peopL began clapping and
talking among themselves.
Ms. van Lenten was calmly
noddingher head, "So you think
the hearingbelongs in the community..."
Havingthus officially acknowledged the complaints, she explained very slowly, mouthing
each word, that for information

tional hearings,one shouldcontact the USDA Western Regional Office. She requested that
speakers from theaudience come
up to the front microphone;
otherwise the testimony would
not be recorded.
She turned and whispered
something to the Regional Administrator who had remained
silent and expressionless through
out the discussion. Then, after
glancing at her watch, she announced that they were behind
schedule and speaker's testimony would have to be limited.
Joe Sanchez, the owner of a
small grocery store in EastLos
Angeles, wasat the podium testifying. Hewas tallanddark and
spoke with a slight accent. He
suggested that recipients be allowed to use food stamps for
non-food items, such as toilet
paper,soap and sanitarynapkins.
"People really need these
items, and some recipients
don't have the money to buy
them," he said.
Noting that half the people in
the room were members of
minorities, he recommended
that the USDAincludedminority and community people on
thepanel. Finally,he concluded
his testimony by expressing
his feelings on the location of
the hearing.
"Many people in the barrios
feel uncomfortablecoming here
to the Biltmore without a tie or
nice shoes,"said Mr. Sanchez.
"I feel it was a disservice to
them to holdthe hearing here."
Ms. Van Lenten thanked Mr.
Sanchez and informed him that
Section 7 of the New Food
Stamp Act allows grocers to
provide recipients with cash
change for any amount less than
one dollar food coupon. Stores
would no longer have to print
paper tokens, and food stamp
recipients would be able to use
the cash change for non-stamp
items, if they so desired.
"Food stamp people should
not feel uncomfortable in any
place," continued Ms. Van
Lenten. "This isapublic placeeveyone should reel welcome

woman from the the Welfare

lookeddirectly at the panelwhen

She recommended that the

to the podium. He had a scared
questioning look on his face as
he approached the young woman.
She picked himup and smiledat
him and pusheda strandof hair
off of his face. She lookedback
at the panel and continued
"I think the whole work program stinks. You expect
mothers with kids to waste time
looking for jobs that don't even
exist? Just look at the unemployment rates."
"Under the New Act, mothers
with children under twelve are
not requred to register for work."
explained Ms. Van Lenten.
"That's when my kidsneed me
most,"the young woman yelled
angrily. "In my neighborhood,
that's when they hit the streetsgo ask any juvenile hall."
Outside,the doorman was still
directing parking and the old
men were still sitting in the park,
but the sun had finally broken
through the clouds.
In a wayI
was glad Icould not
stay for the entire hearing. Testimony would contiune until 9:00
at night-and parking had already cost me four dollars. If I
could have used my food
stamps to pay for the parking, I
wouldhave stayed a little longer.
Ireally would liked to know
how long Mr. Speshock could
look at that chandelier.

Why, at a campus only five

Coach Irwin of the UCI
physical education department

year, when additional administrative duties made it impossible for him to continue. Two
outsideinstructors were hiredto
replace him, and this additional
expense caused the scuba program to run up a $1500deficit.

Release of the equipment has
been a problem because ofsafety regulations imposed by the
UCI diving control board, a
group which meets six times a
year and controls all aquatic
activity on or connected with
the UCI campus. The diving
board requires, among other
things, that all the regulators
belonging to the university be
inspected and upgraded every
sixmonths if they are tobeused.
Coach Irwin and Earl Gibbs
agree that about $700 would
be required to bring the mothballed equipment up to diving
board standards.
