What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The fact that they fight a total stranger leads to the knowledge of students drinking downtown and fight­ ing in the bars. As for the presence of weapons, 92.1% did not have access to a gun, knife, or club when they were drink­ ing alcohol in the last 30 days, but in the last 1-5 6.5% had access and in the last 26-30 days 8.7% had access. 95.7% did not use their weapons when they were drinking. Some stats were compiled as far as freshman and their an­ swers to the questions. Out of 133,75 drink alcohol. 58 had at least one drink in the last 7 days. How many drinks do they usually have when they are out partying? 10 have 2-3 drinks, 15 have 4-5 drinks, 21 have 6-9 drinks, 14 have 10-12 drinks, and 10 have 13 or more. 37 of these students miss Thursday classes because of drinking the night before. Freshman’s sexual conduct shows higher statistics than that of the whole questionnaire. 16 students have had un­ planned sex at least once in the last 6 months, 10 had sex 2-3 times, 4 had sex 4-5 times, and 4 had sex 6 or more times. 45 of the Freshman had planned sex with at least one person in the last 6 months. Are Freshman involved in high risk behavior more than any other class standing? What are the differ­ ences between the Freshman behaviors and Senior behaviors? Do things change? Eventually these questions will be an­ swered. Karleen McSherry, Di­ rector of Residence Life, says there is a plan to answer these questions at some time and to do additional comparisons, but until there is access to a pro­ gram that can compute all these statistics the information will be as is. These do give grounds for plenty of questions about students behavior while here at Western or at any other college. \Burn This!\ goes on despite vandalism, By Kathleen MacDonald Now that the fat lady has sung I thought it might be in­ teresting to take a moment to allow the director and producer of “Burn This” to share her ex­ perience with us. Wendy Hertz had a vision to direct a play for a class last fall. Her vision cameupon reading “Bum This,” by Lanford Wil­ son. It is a risky play in that the characters in it have to take the risk of being personal in their work and, yes, in their lives. As it is quoted from the play on the playbill “...make it as personal as you can. Believe me, you can’t imagine a feeling everyone hasn’t had. Make it personal, tell the truth, and then write ‘Bum This’ on it.” After Hertz was turned down in her endeavor to direct this play for a class due to “inappro­ priate language and subject matter,” she took her dream into Casual Western Style. The authentic 22MWZ five-pocket Relaxed Fit jean is built sturdy with 100% cotton heavyweight denim and no pleats Relaxed fit fot easy comfort available in a range of stylish colors and finishes.

She wanted to do a play that was for the college and its students and faculty to enjoy. With support from IGNU, under the approval of Dr. Gary Lundy and its mem­ bers, Hertz was on her way. “If students have an interest in something, they should go for it’” is the messagein Hertz’s en­ deavor, which is reflected in the theme of the play. Furthermore, Hertz said, “It’s what the col­ lege experience should be. If we don’t have experiences to draw from how are we going to teach our students?” Hertz found great support in Dr. Gary Lundy and Dr. Judy Ulrich who she said were “sup­ portive but didn’t try to take over.” She found flexibility in her request to use the small au­ ditorium and was given as much time as she needed, that was possible. The staff of the physi­ cal plant were generous in help­ ing her find supplies and props. When asked what the most difficult aspect of her endeavor was she replied that it was al­ most impossible at times to get everyone together. Even though the play only involved four cast members and four crew, includ­ ing the director, scheduling was a major blockade. “Responsibil­ ity is really crucial with an event like this,” Hertz stated, “with­ out everyone working together it just wouldn’t come off.” When asked if she would do it again she said she would, but with less of a personal and educa­ tional work load at the same time. Upon opening night Hertz found herself saying over and over again “If (we) pull this off it’ll be a miracle!” The first performance went off well and cast, director and crew were psyched to do it again the next night only to find disaster had struck. Upon arriving to get dressed and ready for the fol­ lowing night’s performance they found that someone had sabo­ taged their endeavor. Sometime between the end of the first per­ formance and 5:45pm the fol­ lowing evening vandals had struck. The sound effect equipment had been stolen, equipment had been damaged, props had been stolen and/or destroyed. What was a simple set to begin with had been minimalized even more so. But, as the saying goes, “the show must go on...” and cast and crew and friends worked madly to prepare and perform the second show. Even with this sad turn of events, Hertz was honored and overwhelmed by the turnout of both WMC professors and stu­ dents.

Pacific 683-6161 If students party for the sole purpose of socializing what can be done to allow them access to social activities that do not in­ volve alcohol? This reporter has seen one way that seems to be a possible successful solution here on WMC campus, the Coffee House. Forty to sixty people showed up at each one and some of the students seen there are the usual Wednesday night at the Club partiers! It was great to see them trying out new ways to get together with friends and not drinking. Lets hope things like this catch on! setbacks of professors Hertz stated, “More support from professors makes a significant impact on students’ attitude and growth.” It is interesting to note that two of the performers in “Burn This” had never acted before. Hertz feels rewarded that she may have encouraged two people to like something and do something they may not have otherwise done. She feels the same about the supportive turn­ out she received from her peers and she hopes they learned from her actions the possibilities available to them. Lastly, Wendy Hertz would like to leave these words as a special message to the cast and crew of “Burn This”: CHERREE - You’re a God­ send! ANDY (Larry) - Coffee & Chill! KEITH (Pale) - “You almost got no f ------------at all.” RACHAEL (Anna) - “You don’t do nothing with your hair, it’s just like that?” DON (Burton) - Do you real­ ize that talking about yourself is unconscious?! BOB BURGAN - Did you ever see a miracle?! KASEY AND CHAD - Thanks so much! JOHN ROBBE - You’re great when there’s a crisis! MATTHEW BATES - Always a pleasure to hear you! DR.
