BY KATE NEILLY BELL
In an effort to keep up with the
demands of students, BSUs residence
halls have gone on-line with the campus
network and the Internet.
Student Residential Life has installed 48
line ports in each residence hall, making it
possible for 48 separate computers to have
access to the networks. Each dorm already
has a computer lab, but new this fall is the
network feature.
In larger residence halls such as
Chaffee Hall and Barnes Towers, the computer labs are equipped with five
Macintosh computers and two IBM compatible Micron computers. The smaller
halls, Morrison and Driscoll, have two
Macintoshes and one IBM compatible
Micron computer" in their labs. In-room
access will also be available sometime
during the next year.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the
time of application and generally must
hold a bacheI<y's degree or its equivalent

"I've never seen such a high-quality

The Ed.D. program, which requires a
full-time residency during summer and
fall, is convenient for students such as
Youngerman.
"It made furthering my education without having to go out of town a lot easier,"
she says.
But the perks of the program will r~ach
much further than the students. The program will be a benefit to the university
and the local public schools as well, Barr
says.
Barr says he believes the major impact
of the program is that each year another

assist in teaching and complete dissertations addressing the problems in the public schools-a real asset to the local public
schools.

HOLLEE BLANKENSHIP
Senior Writer
Not being able to justify
spending $453 on an ASBSU rafting retreat, the ASBSU Senate
turned
down
the executives'
invitation for a day-long trip to
the Payette River.
Senators said 52,000 in student funds were set aside last
year to finance ASBSU retreats
and activities with the purpose
of promoting unity and teamwork.
"It's a chance to get out' of
the' office and know each other,
to communicate so we can help
students," ASBSU Sen. Scan Lee
Brandt said in defense of the
trip.
Sen. Jodie Farnsworth said
the trip would help improve the
camaraderie of ASBSlJ.
"I know that because we didn't
get together last year, we didn't
bond. I know that we can come
back and work so much better as
a Senate," Farnsworth said,
Pro Tern Tim Helgerson suggested that the senate not allocate money for the trip and said
such an activity
would
be
"excessive and indulgent," especially after ASBSU's. recent salary
increase.
Sen. Lindsey Truxcl agreed
that this rafting trip would he too
expensive' and suggested. the
senate come up with an alternative idea, Only four senators
would have been able to go on
the trip, anyway.
Senators agreed an alternative
plan should
be decided
on
before they go to a leadership

Catching bus 22
The solution seems so obvious.
YOI:re sick and tired of trying to park around campus. Even with
a parking permit, you find yourself circling the parking lotlike a vulture, waiting to pounce on the first key-jangling pedestrian you spot.

Then you find out your fees allow you the

You're there.
Last week, The Arbiter's arts editor,
~.
•
Chercen Myers, decided to put the bus-riding
theory into action. This is how it went.
Day one: After calling the BUS office, she learns which bus to take
for the first half of her journey. The problem is, she can't figure out
when it runs by her house because the running times aren't on the bus
schedule,
No mailer. She walks downtown, and catches the Broadway number II bus from the transfer mall.
Cool. She flashes her BSU iderulficarion card, and she's in.
Bliss turns to panic when she later discovers that her work isn't
finished at The Arbiter, and if she doesn't leave work in fifteen minutes she' II miss the last bus home.
She catches a ride with one of the other editors.
Day two: See day one.
Day three: After humming a ride downtown, she catches her bus
to campus. Finishing her work at record speed, she manages 10
catch the '1::\0 p.IIl. hus from campus to downtown. It was running
late, so the driver has to hold her connecting bus downtown. Still
no problem. She catches her connecting bus for the first time all
week, and asks the driver ifshe goes past her house (the BUS
office already said it would), After the driver's forehead creases
with deep frown lines, the driver says "Where is that? Yeah, I guess
r can go rhar way."
After directing the bus driver toward her house, she completes
her 4S-minute quest for home.
Day four: After three attempts to leave the house intime to catch the
next bus, she gives up and borrows her boyfriend's car to get to school.
The moral of this story is that we think the free bus service is a
great idea. At least you can say you're trying to solve the campus
parking problem. And did we mention it's free? Not a bad deal.
Problem is, if you have any type of schedule to maintain you have to
seriously plan ahead. And forget about working late.
It's really a catch-22 situation. The bus schedule mirrors the passenger demand, If three people arc on the 5 p.m. bus, there probably isn't a
need for another bus in the same area every five minutes. But the weak
schedule keeps many people from riding the bus in the first place.
Maybe the solution is to try riding the bus once or twice every
month on days when keeping a tight schedule isn't a priority. If most
BSU students followed this guideline, congested campus traffic
would improve slightly,

Timber hearing disappoints
DAN SKINNER
Staff Reporter
The timber circus was in full
swing last week. Monday, Aug.
29, saw a Senate Subcommittee
on Agriculture come to Boise. It
was sponsored by Sens. Tom
Daschle, R-S.D., and Larry Craig,
Rvldaho. The topic at hand was
the health of Idaho's
forests and what
could be done to
improve their current
conditions.
This testimony was
stacked 9 to 3 in favor
of what we ;111knew
the politicians wanted.
Beyond the stack,
both Dirk
Kernpthorne,
Only one man in the three
hou ..s gave whatseemed to be
unbiased testimony. David
Perry of the Oregon State
University Department of Forest
Science told the committee that
maybe 10 percent of the forests
needed treatment, that all roadless areas should be retained
for their unmanaged qualities
and even where thinning and
Rsldaho,
and Larry Laliocco, DIdaho, gave testimony
which generally blew
their own horns and
called for immediate action on
the forests.
It is public knowledge that
Lakocco ranks ninth in the
House for receiving Big Timber
PAC money. He has pulled in
524,000 in the last four years.
Kcmpthornc is even more lucky
with campaign contributions. He
has pulled in 560,000 since 1987
and ranks fourth in the Senate. If
these gentlemen arc given
aproval to speak before the
experts, it is obvious where this
dialogue is going.
salvage were necessary, roads
should not be buill. Coming
from a scientist with no vested
interest in the politics of this
region, Perry's testimony gave
what should be the action chosen.
Rather than acknowledge the
wisdom of Perry's words,
Daschle stepped in to call for the
testimony the senators were
looking for. He called the chief
of the United States Forest
Service, Jack Ward Thomas, to
the podium as the last witness
and repeatedly asked him jf his
job would be easier if the environmental laws of the land were
not so strict. Thomas refused to
give him the answer he was
looking for. So what does our
public servant do, he restates the
same question a good five times
choosing different rhetoric while
calling for the same answer. He
wanted to hear outright that the
Endangered Species
Act and the National
Environmenlal Policy
Act arc too binding.
Daschle and Craig
were looking for formal justification for
changing the current
system into something
where the public and
the animals may be
excluded from
resource management.
These environmental
laws guarantee the
rights of both the public and the wildlife to be given
consideration in the face of the
timber beasts.
Craig and Daschle plan on
introducing joint legislation to
implement their solutions to
forest health. Apparently, rhey
do not want the public
involved and arc less than concerned with 'the survival of the
various threatened species in
the area. Now please, you tell
me, is this forest health or timber-as-the-only-priority
in our
National Forests?

But, after further inspection, I saw
that it really was The Arbiter. As I
looked at the cover photo and the corresponding title, I was surprised and

women who ride the bus and a dangerous combination of childlike and sexual
images.
Now don't get me wrong, I am not a
prude. My husband subscribes to Playboy
and that doesn't bother me.
However, I am bothered by images of
women dressed in a childlike fashion
with sexual undertones. With child
molestation and incest almost commonplace it should be obvious that
pedophilia is a serious problem in our
society. To protect children as much as
possible I feel we must be conscientious

ASBSU approval
No more lines
After filing the necessary papers for
financial aid last Spring, I knew that the
biggest hurdle I would face in the fall
would be gathering the patience that I
would need to wait through the interminable lines that seem to go hand in
hand with receiving a financial aid
check. It was, however, with pleasure
that I noted that Financial Aid
Distribution had been moved to the
Student Union Building. The lines were
substantially shorter than the lines had
been in the Administration building, and
I went through the process much quicker then I had imagined.
In part, I would like to thank ASBSU,
President Jeff Klaus, and Vice President
Darryl Wright. I noted during the election
last Spring that Klaus and Wright made the
campaign promise that they would speed
up Financial Aid Distribution. It is a pleasure to see that they have held true to this
promise.

Correction
In last week's Proposition
One story, The Arbiter mistakenly reported that the
name of the student organization led by Dan Tidrington is
Bisexuals, Gays, and Lesbians
Against Discrimination. The
name of the organization is
actually Bisexuals, Gays,
Lesbians, and Allies for
Diversity. We apologize for
any misunderstandings this
may have caused.
Clarification
While Tidrington did
repeatedly say he did not
want to deny the existence of
a gay agenda, he was not
affirming ICA spokesperson
Bill Proctor's stance that the
gay agenda is to expand
power over the general population. Tidrington wishes to
clarify that homosexuals only
seek equal recourse to the
law.

work here on jan, 19, 1993--a lot has
changed since then.
What do you think is going to happen this
football season? .
R: I'm very optimistic.
[students] require different kinds of services and make running our kind of university different from running a university
where everybody lives on campus and
everybody comes at nine in the morning
and goes home at three in the afternoon.
Do we usc student fees in select cd
areas to handle growth? Absolutely. Does
the state give us additional dollars to handle growth? Absolutely. Do we need more
resources to do the job you want done?
Absolutely.
R: We have not seen that in terms of
student behavior, if the yardstick for that
is what courses students sign up for.
...We continue to have a great deal of
pressure for students who are enrolling in
our four-year programs. One of the nice
things about Boise State is...you can move
from an academic program to avo-tech
program or vice versa.
What is your biggest priority for the academic
year ahead? .

tenure at the university
,
dean for Social Sciences and Public Affairs.
I'm excited. We're ready to go.
What do you think about getting on engi. neering school?
R: As of right now, the [State] Board of
Education has said that our role in the
engineering program is primarily the first
two years. And we have an obligation to
do just a bang-up job in providing students who want to come and study at
Boise State and ultimately
become engineers ...the first two
years-and
that Includes English
and history and chemistry and
.,;..
How many losing seasons does a
football coach gef?
R: I think the question is,
what's a reasonable expectation
to build a football program? And
I'm on record as saying that I
don't even want to talk about that'
kind of question until after the
third year.
~
Will in-state tuition cross the S1,000
mark next year?
R: We had to project to the
finance Committee when we met with
them earlier this week what we thought
our fees would be. And we projected a
5.4 percent increase at this stage of thegame.
It's always hard to know so far in
advance. We don't know what student
activities or other issues arc going to
emerge over the course of the year. We
have to re-bid the student health plan-I
don't know what that's going to do in
terms of health fees. Everyone would
like to know ahead of time, but it just
has to evolve over the course of the
year.
We're still the best buy around, though.
Do we use student fees to handle growth in
cerlain areas an campus?
R: .Certainly fees contribute to the services that students ask to be provided ....
Our students are also more heterogeneous. in that we have students who
come' in the evening, some come on the
weekend, some in t1~eday. and some go to
schopl in Caryoll, County. All o.fthose,
Why do 'you' say thai we are the best deal'
around?
'" R: I think we provide a first-rate education, and I think the costs to students are
the lowest of any state that I'm familiar
with .... We are certainly very competitive
with other schools in 'Idaho. And we're
very competitive when compared with
. schools in surrounding states.
Is there any end to rising student fees in sight?
R: Probably not.
I don't foresee in either of our lifetimes
that fees are not going to continue to
increase. Wc're trying everything we know
how to do to keep that increase as low as
possible and continue to meet the needs
of the students.
With four-year programs becorrling increasingly expensive, will the university's role and
students begin to shift mare to quicker vocational programs?
R: I think I have a whole lot of priori- .
ties ....Suchthings as improving the quality
of the things we do here, such as teaching, learning, continuing to provide the
resources, helplingl us plan for the 21st
Century.
With a new vice president for Finance and
with two colleges with new deans, how do
you feel the transitions are being handled?
R: I think all of the transitions have
gone verY smoothly.
All three vice presidents now are in
place and operating very well together.
Our new dean, Dea~ [Phillip) Eastman, -is
the dean in the College of Arts and
Sciences, andwe'reexcited
that Dr.
[Warren] Viriz would se~e as our interim
calculus and
physics and pre-engineering
courses. And it really is the first
three years-engineering
is
almost a five-year program.
If they're electrica~rs
they can stay in Boise and finish
their degree with University of
Idaho faculty, If they want other
brands of engineering then they
would have to transfer.
That's the job that ~as been given to us
by the state. And so my agenda is to make
sure that we do our part of that job as the
best job we can and that students do very
well. And there's already evidence that we
do that.
We don't have enough resources
because engineering 'has grown just like
everything else has grown around here. So
we still have what I call a pipeline problem. We still have students who come and
can't get in the class they want because
there' aren't enough classes. That's no different for engineers than it is for nursing
students or English students or communication students or anyone else.
We're just stretched about as thin as we

Extension
Students at Boise State will have a better chance
to enroll In hard-to-get core classes this year. The
only catch is the location: Nampa's Canyon County
Extension is ready for business.
The $1 million project was completed just under
budget earlier this summer. Construction started in
June 1993, and by January classes had started
despite ongoing construction, said Dennis Griffin,
general manager at the Canyon center.
Canyon Coordinator Candy Griffindidn't expect
a large number of Boise-based students to take
advantage of the new, less-crowded sister campus.
"We still don't get a lot of Boise students. We
get students who live in Nampa/Caldwell-students drive in from Jordan Valley, Weiser, Emmett.
Primarily the Boise students only come in if they
work in Nampa or if there's a class they're desperate to get and they can't,get into lit! on campus.
We make phone lists, and about 95 percent are
local exchange numbers so they're either living or
working here," Griffin said. She said about 95 percent of the students are also non-traditional.
Griffin said the extension originally served as an
alternative location to meet the demand of students
who worked day jobs and needed night classes. As
the demand for classes increased: so did the
Nampa campus.
"When the program started here six years ago
lit] only offered about three or four classes a
semester. There were maybe 15 students in a class,
and it's just grown and grown and grown," she
said.
Katie Hays, program director for the Canyon
County Center, said this year's enrollment is about
750. The increase is substantial compared to the
1989 enrollment of 120 sttiderits.
Along with an increase in size, the extension
has added more classes, including anthropology.
Mark Plew, Boise State anthropt:>logyc:hainrlan, is
pleased with the extended courses in Nampa.
. "We have always had an interestin trying to
increase our enrollment in the Nampa/Caldwell
area. It is a very culturally diverse area, andthat's
something we deal with in anthropology. We also,
as a department, 'are very supportive of any efforts
to take what we do on campus out into the communities of Idaho." Plew said.
The addition of anthropology courses is also a
bonus for students trying to get through BSU's indemand' core classes, Plew said;
"In terms of anthropology courses, all our introductory courses are pan of the area two core. so"
it's a real advantage for us to make those available
to students outside of Boise," he said.
Although the project was completed recently.
the center's general manager said there will be
more work in the future.
"We're looking at a very major expansion in the
next few years. If you look at the BSU strategic
planthat's been approved by the State Board it
says that one of the strong objectives very high on
the list is to provide a stronger branch education
and they mention specifically the Canyon County
campus," Griffin said. "I wouldn't be surprised if
this eventually becomes a BSU West son of cam:,' pus. And I'm not talking in the next 20 years, I'm
talking in the next four or five years," Griffin said.
But until construction starts again, Boise State
instructors like Plew will enjoy splitting their classtime between Boise and Nampa.
"We're a university in transition, and I think it's
a real exciting time. Boise State's becoming a great
institution with excellence in it's program. But I
think at times it's nice to be in other kinds of situations 'as well," Plew said.

It's been more than a decade since video killed
the radio star, and MTV has much more than music
television.
Today MTVers can watch cartoons (Beavis and
Butt-Head), go shopping from their Barcalounger
(The Goods), get hooked on a hip soap (Real
World) and learn how to dance tTbe Grind).
Oh, and you can still watch music videos.
But even the videos have changed, offering ;1

like it or not, if you arc in the 20-30-year-old category, you are part of the MTV generation. This
means you probably associate Top 40 songs with
mental images conjured up by heavy-rotation on
MTV's buzz bin, And before you get too hooked
on that new Aerosmith video. another "Hip Clip"
will step in it's place.
Life in the world of MTV means neatly-categorized glimpses into what was once enning-edge
music. But today it's not rare, underground music;
it's Alternative Nation. It's a land where trends are
born every day-and by nightfall you're so sick of
the latest buzz clip you're ready to puke.

talked about the music network.
"M1V is a radio station, It
plays such a variety of styles. On
one hand it's good because it
introduces you to new bands
you've never heard. On the
other hand it's like a 3-minute

Last week I caught Bad

and I thought about what
Bentley said to me during the
interview. He said that Bad
Religion feels obligated to make
videos now, but not just for
M1V. He said that he still liked'

Cinderella success stories often entice

The conversation between Andreas and

the working conditions, she was still surprised.
"Even the man from Peru felt the conditions were extremely bad. Worker\iri third-

Andreas says while she can't verify the
information, she has been told that the production line rate has accelerated to 600
products an hour. The rate is impossible for
workers to maintain without injury.
"They're falling by the way all the time.
Really, I think you have to call it terror. I
think they're shooting themselves in the
foot," Andreas says.
Work on the production line is
described hy Rosa Morado in Mea/packers .
Morado worked as ;1 meat trimmer for five
years at the Greeley, Colo. plant Monfort:
"You have to hood your meat and cut
one part out. You have to trim it down to
specs ...Then the last piece you have, you
arc left with a big chunk of fat and there's
another piece of meat you got to cut out
and we got to trim that all the way off
around on the back to certain specs, turning it around."
Following Morado's account of a typical
workday, Andreas explains the harsh reality
of the worker's situation:
"All of wh;t Mor:ido described was
accomplished in 45 seconds with a line
speed of at least 365 head of cattle an hour
and with nine people assigned to the job.
On vacation days, she said, 'I practically
had to stand on my hand to straighten it
out, it was cramped up so bad.' Morado
was unusually long-suffering. An estimated
50 to 60 people quit, were injured, terminated, or replaced each week at the packing plant where she worked."
In her research, Andreas discovered that
workers are sometimes killed in plant accidents as a result of falling into the meat
blenders. The injury rate at Monfort is
alarming-compared
to the industry's average, the Monfort plant's rate is two andone-half times larger, Andreas says that the
plant was forced to release the injury rate
information after a lawsuit pressured the
plant.
The plant's influence even reaches
beyond on-the-job accidents. In her interview with the Rodriguez family, Andreas
speaks with Joaquina, who moved to
Colorado with her husband Pedro and 10
children in 1?58. joaquina's brother Tomas
worked for Monfort for 22 years, but fell
and injured his back at work in 1989.
Monfort's rehabilitation supervisor forced
Tomas to keep working, despite his excruciating pain. After an operation in 1990 that
left him unable to work and without company disability pay, he killed himself.
Another member of the Rodriguez family,
the son of Pedro and joaquina, was hit by a
cow while he was loading animals into a
train. He worked at Monfort for 10 years.
Andreas hopes that by writing her book.
others will learn about the dangers tluu
exist in the rneatpucking
Industry. She discourages company boycotts, but says she
eats less meat today because of her
research.
"Boycotting can't solve the problems
because the companies just move into
another area instead. They find new ways
to beat each other out in the games. In the
case of ConAgra, they have so many products-they're
the biggest meat producing
·company-it makes it hard to wage an
effective boycott."
. Another problem is identification.
ConAgra produces fish, chicken and grains
in addition to beef. Not all products carry a
ConAgra label.
Through her book, Andreas hopes to
help inform the public, but she also hopes
to inspire Greeley workers. Although most .
. are too afraid
loosing their jobs to speak
. , out, the author has high expectations.
"I don't think anyone can do any more
, than be a mediating kind of influence. I feel
,still that in the end it's the organization by
c' ',the workers that will change things. I hope
'.-.that overthrie some of the information
about the company will help to provide
some of the support they need."

Giant Sand's Howe Gelb[ets deep in the desert
(HEREEN MYERS
Associate Editor-Arts
Giant Sand's Howe Gelb speaks softly over the
phone-his
voice captures that numb, hushed tone
found when someone first wakes up in the morning.
But it's 3 p.m.
"Do I sound too sedate? We were out in the
desert until 5 a.m.," Gelb says.
The vocalist, guitarist and founder of Giant Sand
had wandered out into the desert of Tucson, Ariz.,
falling aslep on the hood of his car.
It's an appropriate senario for Gelb and Giant
Sand. The Tucson band is known for experimenting-discovering
new sounds and styles without
much contemplation about what they should be
doing. In fact, Gelb doesn't allow outside opinions
to determine anything he does.
"I think there's a thousand ways to fuck yourself
up. You're the only one that can stop yourself from
doing something."
Listening to any of Giant Sand's 17 recordings, it's
obvious they aren't too concerned about what anyone thinks. On any given album, you can hear a
country-western tune, blues-inspired songs and the
voice of Gelb and bassist Paula Brown's 7-year-old
daughter lndiosa Patsy jean. Gelb says Indiosa started appearing on Sand albums when she was just a
few days old.
On Sand's latest album Glum, lndiosa sings "Bird
Song." She was 6-years-old when the song was
recorded. Her young voice dances up and down the
musical scale, carrying notes with pride and self-confidence. Her father admires her sense of freedom.
"She doesn't think she can sing. She isn't sure
why [ make a big deal out of it. It was one of those
rare instances. She was kind of singing in Dad's ear,
forgetting there was a microphone. She's already •.goi
it down-s-everything that I want to learn.
~••.
"I think most of this stuff is people telling themselves what they can't do, then they grow up and
the two albums were separated by eight months.
Gelb loved both reviews.
"We figured that's why it's called the entertainment industry. They're severely entertaining, and
they're fun to read. I agreed with everything he said,
but for the same reason he didn't like it, I like it. The
whole star system
takes me back to
kindergarden, anyway. I thought it was
damn cute that he
ran the good one
right after the bad
one.
In Sand's l O-year
history, Gclb's
resource of musjpal inspiration hasn't evaporated ..As
the band's primary song-writer, Gelb draws inspiration from everyday occurances or anything else he
finds interesting. A couple years ago the hand rerecorded the theme song for the old television series
Rowe 66 for a new series of the same name. The
series never saw airtime, but Gelb still thinks about
releasing the so~g, possibly on an upcoming compilation. It was a~t'llting project, since Gelb likens life
in Giant Sand to the program Route 66.
"It seems like there's always so much.more that I could [et
done. Everythin[ is built on a process of elimination, decidin[ what
you don't want to do. Youjust have piles ofit. It's a war a[ainst clutter."
either get rebellious and do it anyway, or they
decide they can't do it. I just let my daughter get it
out of her system, because of course she can do it.
Anyone can do it."
Unfortunately for Gelb, music reviewers don't
always share his philosophy. A recent Rolling Stone
review of Purge ami Slouch.awarded Sand's efforts
with 'one-and-a-half stars. The next issue featured a
review of Glum (by the same reviewer), but gave the
album a three-and-half-star rating. Nevermind that

Offers for projects with jazz and classical musicians have also rolled in. And Gclb says he can
hardly keep up with his own ideas for songs.
"There's massive variety out there we haven't
even tapped or touched. So when they come knocking on our door, we usually let them in.
"It seems like there's always so much more that I
could get done. Everything is built on a process of
elimination, deciding what you-don't want 10 do.
You just have piles of it. It's a war against clutter."
Gclb seems to leap-frog across various genres,
not worrying about where he's going next. His car
has even been in on the routine, appearing on the
cover of The Leaving Trains' album Transportational
D. Vices. The same car later appeared on the cover
of a bootleg Chris lssaac album. But Gelh, in perfect
form, was pleasantly surprised 10 make the discovery
in a record store. After deciding against the album
because of its $30 price tag, he tried in vain to
explain things to the clerk.
"I told him it was my car, but he was ill
impressed."
Then again, Gclb himself is the first to admit his
love for re-discovery.
"I'm a big believer in the church of re-invention.".

Dungeons & Dragons paraphernalia and a Kiss poster (with Peter
Kriss and Ace Frehley!) and sings "In the garage I feel safe/No
one cares about my ways/In the garage where I belong/No one
hears me sing this song."
On "No One Else" he ploys the port of the overly obsessive
boyfriend: "I wont a girl who will laugh for no one else/When I'm
away she puts her make-up on the shelf/When I'm away she
never leaves the house."
Weezer breathe some life into the surf·rock genre with "Surf
Wax America" a hifarious caricature of a die·hard surfer; "The
World Has Turned and Left Me Here" stands with "Soy It Ain't So"
and" My Nome Is Jonas" as a testament to the talent and potential of this young bond.

Cuomo and friends write Rick Nielsan'(Qliber songs and they
have the chops to bock them up. Weezer put simply: shart-haired

Weezer? Isn't that some pitifully small town west of here?
No, this Weezer is another superb bond on DGe. Weezer's seff·
tided debut LP is destined to make all of us nostolgic for the early
198Ds. "Buddy Holly" sounds more like "Shake it Up" than
"Smells Uke Teen Spirit" (I do think this goes deeper than Ric
Ocasek's production).

Leadership
When I purchased Mozzy Star's So Tonight That I Might See,
my original intention was to ploy the album's firsfsingle "Fade
Into You" on repeat mode while I depressed myself thinking about
every girl who's ever broken my heart.
(Sigh)
However, I soon realized the dangers involved with this and
decided to give the rest of the album a shot. Maybe, I thought,
there would be something a bit peppier to liven me up.
Wrong.
I have three words for anyone intending to someday own this
CD-No heavy machinery.
The'sorrawful acoustic guitars Vibrating throughout the album's
10 tracks are sure to give your han key a workout. Combine them
with Mozzy's hypnotic voice, and you have musical lithium.
One thing to watch out for is the mystery guitor whine which
surfaces occasionally in the distance of severol tracks.
"She's my baby" is hit especially hard by this phenomenon.
Thraughout this otherwise bluesy tune some fool shamelessly strangles his gUitor, attempting to mimic everyone from the Jackson
Five to Poison to Nirvana.
But, ~ you can get post this small disturbance, you're in fora
treat. A sorrowful treat, but a treat nonetheless.

The Meices/Tastes like Chicken/External Records
Ilove the Meices to pieces.
This Son Francisco trio pushes the limits of sonic guitar pop on
their new album Tastes Like Chicken.
With the help of Kurt Bloch, The Meices have managed to produce on album that stonds- as toll as their magnificent debut, The
Greatest Bible Stories Ever Told.
In many ways Tastes Like Chicken is a stronger, more unified
album than its predecessor. Three of Bible Stories' strongest frocks
were recorded earlier than the rest of the material and hod a dis'
tinctly different feel. Guitars playa prominent role in the new
album's departure. Bloch and The Meices share on affinity for
chug, chug, chugging guitars and the result of their pairing is on
eclectic guitar album.
"Daddy's Gone to California" and "Until the Weekend" are
amazing songs that scream with single potential. "Lettuce is Far
Out" is a choice anthem of deviance pocked with zany sound
effects and trippy guitar work for the red-eyed audience. "Hapin'
for a Ride" and "Slide" wonder around until they dump into
tremendous hooks. The amps hit 11 on "The Big Shitburger" and
"Untruly." In a beautiful four minutes and 23 seconds "Now" does'
it all.
Vocalist/guitarist Joey can whine, holler and sing with the best
of them. Not many singers could' pull off a line like "and my baby
was a cocktail waitress on the seedy side of town" with the humor
and grace of this head Meice. Mark and Stevie, drums and bass,
do their fair share of pounding and plucking to place Tastes Like
Chicken in the realm of high energy rock.
The Meices are cool. The Meices are fun. The Meices could kick
Green Day's butt. If you're still not convinced buy the album for
Eric White's "tasteful" cover art.

Thanks to brilliant editing by Hank COIWin and Brian Berdan, this comedy/satire
of mankind's fascination with murder is a bombardment
of shifting, changing visual
images blended together like oil on wet pavement. There are numerous controversial

impressions woven into director Oliver
Stone's work of art that tells the story of
two young lovers, Mickey ami Mallory,
who murder 52 people in three weeks.

Killers does not glorify
murder, it ridicules the twisted relationship
between the television media and its audience. The media is known to sensationalize murder, the public eats it up and psychotic killers are made into heroes everyday. This is the main message of the
movie.
It's a shame that the most violent scenes

Starring is Woody Harrelson who plays
Mickey, and Juliette Lewis as Mallory. Harrelson and Lewis surprisingly play the
roles to perfection. Harrelson sends chills as he tells a reporter, "It's just murder.

Murder is pure." He believes that it's his victims' fate to die by his hand.
Mallory doesn't have a philosophy, she's just happy to be rid of her incestuous

Tommy Lee Jones as the prison warden, Tom Sizemore as the arresting officer, and
Robert Downey Jr. as the television journalist who in~erviews Mickey on live television. These three characters are as sick as Mickey and Mallory. The warden plots
with the cop to kill them, the cop wants to force himself on Mallory, and the television jerk blatantly kisses up to Mickey for the interview.
Three quarters of the way through the movie, the audience is forced to listen to
these three idiots babble on, and when Mickey and Mallory are brought back onto
the screen, the couple doesn't seem so bad after all, just misunderstood.
Like the
story's brainwashed public, the audience now cheers on the two killers, forgetting a
proverb heard in the movie, "If it's a snake, it's going to bite, what do you expect?"
Students of film will study this movie for its visual effects. lising time lapse photography, super 8·millimeter blowups and every creative trick of the trade, the movie
will govern the way films are made for a very long time.

Proposition Two, an initiative limiting the number of terms eleded federal, state, county, municipal and school district officials can
serve, will be an November's ballot.
The initiative will not allow officials' names to appear on a bal·
lot for any office which they have served repeoted~, olthou'gh they
may be elected to that same office through a write-in campaign.
If Idahoons apt for the term limit initiative, they will join 15
states that have passed similar Iows-Iows which would have kept
career politicians such as Ted Kennedy, Bob Dole, J. D. Rockefeller
and Orin Hatch off the campaign trail for the majority of their elect·
ed terms.

A guide ICII~·using the new library
JASON SIEVERS
Staff Writer
The Albertson's BSU Library will be an unfamiliar
place to new and returning students this semester. After a
,summer of expansion and remodeling the library is still
under construction, but the addition phase of construction is winding down:
"The focus is now on the renovation of existing library
space," said Janet Strong, orientation librarian.
The first and second floors of the library house the
Reference Department which consists of nearly 3,600
magazines, journals, newspapers and periodicals. Strong
said that students can access reference materials with
print indexes, CD ROM indexes and microfilm.
Recently published materials can be found on shelves
while most back issues are available on microfiche.
The Curriculum Resource Center is located on the
, second floor. The CRC contains textbooks and nonprint materials used by Idaho students in kindergarten
through high school as well as the library's juvenile
and young adult reading collection. Phonograph
records, filmstrips, video and audio cassettes and compact disks are kept in the CRC with the appropriate
players.
Also located on the second floor are the Map collection and U.S. Government'Publications.
The library has
over 100,000 maps ranging froin historical maps to geological maps. The U.S. Government Publications include
census data and the Congressional Record. _
"This is an excellent place toJindstatistics for reports
/ and research papers," said Strong. The library also has
Idaho and Canadian Publications.
Arbiter photo by Rick Kosarim
The circulating book collection occupies the third and
fourth floors. Access to the library's 350,000 volumes can
be made through Catalyst, the computer catalog. Catalyst
is an on-line computer that catalogs Albertson's BSU
Library and Boise Public Library holdings. Several Catalyst
terminals are located on each floor of the library and
Strong said that information is easy to access with
Catalyst's step-by-step approach.
The library will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m, to 7 p.m. on
Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. and noon to 10
p.m. on Sundays this fall.
"There will be lots of movements due to construction,"
said Strong, "Please ask us for help, that's what we're
here for."

Quick, Name a famous waitress. Think fast, you're on the clock.
And no, Bridget Fonda doesn't count and neither does Alice.
Ypu see? Here;s if group of people catering to our basic needs,
who'svety wage is dependent on smiles and speedy feet. Yet what
recognition do they get? Zilch. No wonder they sometimes turn
oicious and bloodthirsty when our backs are turned. Sue P. is a
non-traditional student returning this year after a long absence
from academia. Here she shares a true-life story that has all the
trappings of a Kajk{lesque psychodrama.
The worst job I ever had was at a restaurant in Evanston,
Illinois, where I grew up. I had this job for three days, waitressing, and I was very confused about who ordered what, and how
to present the order to the kitchen. I guess I definitely was not
cut out to be a waitress: I was always fumbling something, the
.customers were angry with me and complaining to my boss-c-it
was horrible.
And one night when we' were all counting our tips, one of the
waitresses-s-oh, that was another thing-the other waitresses
were really mean. They were' bitches. And they did not want to
help me out at all. It's like they wanted to see me fail at this.
They were always doing things to trip me up and they wouldn't
answer my questions.
One night one of them-like I said we were counting our tips,
and I can't remember what I was saying, but she said, mysteriously: "Your house is burning." I said, 'What?' And she's like, some, thing to the effect of, "Get a clue, girl. Your house is burning."
And then.she looked at the other one. and giggled. and they
laughed. I was just horrified. "What are they talking about?"
They did not want to see me work there. The next day, it was
my day off, and I went in to my boss, and I said, "God, I'm really
sorry. I really wanted to work here and stuff, but, urn, I got a cal1
from this other job I had applied for with the power company,
and jeez, there's like real1y good benefits, real1y good money. and
I just really want to work there. But I really thank you for giving
me this chance.
.
He really did make it obvious that he normally just hires people with experience and he's made an exception in my case.
And I thanked him for the chance, and he was really angry
with me, and on my way out the door he was like, "Yeah right!
Just remember me in your will, OK?" I walked out and I was just
1/haking.Well, it.was one of the first jobs I ever had. I decided I
was never going to waitress again. I just assumed 'that's what
waitressing was all about.

After 36-26
victory over
Northeastern,
Allen optimistic,
but cautious
JASON SIEVERS
Staff Writer
After defeating Northeastern
University 36-26 in their season
opener Saturday the Boise State
Broncos are gearing up to face
Cal State Northridge.
Coach Pokey Allen commended his team's winning perfor.mance, but said "We've got a '
long way to go."
The Broncos fight against
Northeastern's Huskies wasn't an
easy one. The lead changed several times and the Huskies kept
the pressure on quaterback Tony
Hilde.
Allen said that his team
should have scored more in the
first half and that several mistakes in the first half put the
Bronco's victory in jeopardy. The
game did give Allen a chance to
look at this year's team and
assess its potential, "I like. this
team, 1 like their enthusiasm.
They're pretty tough."
K.C. Williams turned out to be
the Bronco's biggest asset. The
junior halfback scored three
touchdowns and ran for 172
yards.
"K.C. had a great performance," said Hilde. "We've got
two great running hacks; I'm not
putting downWillie Bowens
either." Bowens did his part running for 25 yards.
Arbi/er photo 11/us/ration by Joe Re/k
Hilde, a junior, connected on
20 of 31 passes for 276 yards.
Earlier in the week it looked like
Hilde might not play due to a
bizarre ankle injury.
"We had a big goal of coming
together," said Hilde. "Defense
and offense practice opposite
during the week, but when it
comes game time we've got to
. come together as ;1 family and a
team."

Intramural-recreation program
inititates fees, improves 'facilities
Bronco senior
Melissa Dahl
leads spikers
SCOTT SAMPLES
Sports Editor
In the past few years, walking into the BSU IntramuralRecreation office was about like'
walking into a torture chamber.
It was dark and the halls
echoed with sounds of metal
clanging together and muffled
shrieks of pain.
That's changed this year, as
the department has made a priority of upgrading the facilities
from dank basement dwelling
to a place that looks like a gym
worth paying money for.
"Just in the recreation area
you can see the improvements,"
Kevin Israel, director of the IMRec program, said, "We've tried
to change it more to a club type
atmosphere instead of a dungeony kind of thing."
Over the summer new carpet and lighting was installed
and this month a new basketball floor will be put in the
Pavilion gymnasium. Irs all part
.of an effort to make the department more desirable to BSU
students.
"Our goal is student access,"
Israel said, "I believe a student
ought to be able'to'spend time
out of class to compliment what
they're learning in class."
Israel, in his third year as
director of the program, has
instituted several changes in the
department, most of which he
said arc an effort to allow students the chance to usc the
facilities they pay for.

Melissa Dahl doesn't see what the big deal is.
• So what if she's the only senior on the BSU volleyball team? OK, she admits it's a little strange to
be the lone last-year player on a squad of 14 athletes, but that doesn't mean much in the grand volleyball scheme of things.
"It's not a big deal. I don't think it's anything I
shouldn't be prepared for," she said. "It's just my
turn to be the leader."
Dahl, a 5·foot-l0 outside hiller, kno~s what it
takes to he a lender, She's been in the BSU program for the past five years, having redshirted in
1990 and was named to the All-Big Sky Conference
team as a junior last year.
She also knows how to get it done in the classroom. An elementary education major, she was
named to the Big Sky all-academic team last year.
Now she is in her final season, the only senior
on a team laden with juniors (a total of five) and
freshmen (four).
"It is a little strange because there's usually at
least two (seniors) and they can kind of share the
responsihilities," Dahl said.
Still, there arc others on the team who help take
some of the leadership load off her shoulders.
Junior seller Angela Adams is co-captain along with
Dahl. Plus, junior outside hiller Sarah Buxman, who
rcdshirted in 1991, has also been with the program
for awhile and is closest in age to Dahl.
And even though the team has a fair amount of
underclassmen. there is no chasm between them
and the upperclassmen.
"We don't segregate the team," Dahl said. "The
seniors don't not talk to the freshmen and we don't
have initiations or anything like that."
Her coach, Darlene Baile)', who has been at the
Arbiter photo by Danny Frank
helm of the BSU,volleyball team for 16 years, said
Dahl shouldn't feel a ton of extra pressure to guide
the team.
"We never expect just one person to do it,"
Bailey said. "Just because you're a senior doesn't
mean you're a natural leader."
But in sports there is inevitably 'at least some
leadership responsibilitiesdelegated
to seniorsthey've been in the program the longest, they know
how. to act and how to play, Sometimes that burden can be somewhat stressful.
Dahl, however, said she welcomed the role,
"I'm happy to have a chance to be a leader on
the team," she said. "I think I have experience and
knowledge that (the younger players) might be
able to benefit from."
The University of Wyoming went 3-0 in last
weekend's Bronco Labor Day Classic Tournament,
while the Broncos, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and
Idaho State were each 1-2.
This year there have been
few structural changes in the
IM-Rec department. One of the
biggest was to create a graduate
student position to oversee
most of the intramural duties;
ranging from distributing flyers
to organizing referees.
There arc several intramural
sports available, ranging from
flag football to fooseball, as
well as a handful of special
events that will take place during the year.
"It's kind of traditional
sports, which is the way our
campus is," Israel said. "People
don't want to put in a lot of
time and energy into it, but
they do want to play."
One problem the department does have is a lack of
space for the amount of people
who use it. Israel said on a
busy day, nearly 1,000 people
could be working out, playing
basketball, or participating in
intramurals.
To try and alleviate some of
those problems the department
is attempting to crack down on
people who don't belong to
what Israel calls the "BSU Community"-that is, people who·
aren't paying their $5.25 per
semester in fees.
Currently BSU students, faculty and staff can use the facilities for that $5.25 fcc, while
alumni must pay $25 a semester. The money goes toward
things like improvements in the
facilities and buying new intramural equipment.

Pebbled asphalt paves
The way through straw-like grass
Structure and substance over water-logged earth.
Slate-gray stones line inky water
Tumbling over itself
Forward, downward, on.
Hollow wood echoes footsteps,
Path over a tributary--<liversion to the pond
Murky patch of yellowed cattails and weeds ....
SCREECH-the jay's dive turns
Inches from breaking the inky glass
Mirror of the glOWing orb low in the winter sky.
I am the solitary figure in the background
Of movies where children's laughter spills
From tumbling bodies at play.
Long, dark coat, collar turned high, shield from the wind
Hands stuffed deep into pockets
Protection from the cold.
Suddenly grateful for the chill breeze reddening
Skin and drying salty tracks down cheeks.
Thank you for not passing too close.
