Who’s aware of the Fitness Center fee? A parking structure is promised if the Fitness Center is approved.
A public info forum on the proposed center falls flat when no one shows. By LAURIE SCHULTZ Daily Titan Staff Writer
By NICK BRENNAN Daily Titan Staff Writer
Students’ daily trek from their cars to campus may be shortened. To help alleviate the parking fiasco, the construction of a structure is being considered. If the proposed Fitness Center passes March 24, the university will fund the construction of a parking structure, according to Heith Rothman, Associated Students president. However, the university is only pursuing the issue of increased parking if the Fitness Center is approved by the students, according to a memo to Rothman from Willie J. Hagan, vice president for administration. Rothman said it may take a couple of years to build the structure, but he was not sure as to the exact length of time. The proposed site is where the existing Lot B is located, near the Physical Education Building and the Titan Student Union. Students have complained about the lack of parking for as long as they have been driving, though Rothman and President Milton Gordon have both said that there is no lack of parking, just a lack of close parking. “The structure would replace existing spaces and is sure to add more spots,” Rothman said. Students cannot find parking as it is, Rothman said. They have to compete with Union events and sometimes faculty take student spots in Lot B since their lot is full, Rothman said.

see PARKING/ 3 Empty chairs were the only participants in the Fitness Center discussion that never happened on Wednesday.
Thirty chairs remained empty. A microphone was set up, but there was no one to listen. Photographs of fitness facilities at other colleges that Cal State Fullerton’s proposed sports complex might resemble were displayed, but few students were there to look at them. Either apathy or ignorance—it is unclear which was the culprit—killed an informational forum that was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, but never took place. Instead, an informal question and answer session between members of Associated Students and several passing students and staff was held. “This will be a big waste of money,” said student Salena Wakim. “The athletic teams will take over the facility. We should fix the facility we have.” Another student said, “If it was a good idea, I’d be willing to use the money in my student loan for it but the facility is not needed.” Kurt Borsting, assistant director of the Titan Student Union, said there were goods sides to only having a few people show up, but he would have preferred a full house. “It’s hard to say why many people didn’t show up at today’s forum,” Borsting said. “I wouldn’t want to attribute a motive. On one hand, it was encouraging to meet with people on a one-to-one basis, sharing information with them and encouraging them to vote. That made the event worthwhile.” Borsting has been using different avenues to help people learn about the proposal and encourage them to vote. Besides having 8,000 brochures printed and distributed, he has had announcements posted on bulletin boards at the
CSUF’s Latino ratio lower than Orange County’s n DIVERSITY: Latino enrollment at CSUF is 20 years behind
other ethnic groups; administrators say community involvement will increase numbers. By FRANK DIAZ
Daily Titan Staff Writer Cultural differences and the effects of Proposition 209 may be combining to keep Latino enrollment at Cal State Fullerton almost 20 years behind the times,
at levels reflecting the Orange County Latino population of 1980, according to university administrators. According to a report from the CSUF Office of Analytical Studies, of the total 24,906 students enrolled at the university this semester, 4,952 are Chicano or
“other Hispanic.” That constitutes less than a quarter of the student body. Yet, according to CSUF’s Center for Demographic Studies, Hispanic enrollment in Orange County for grades K-12 constitutes 37 percent of the students. By comparison, CSUF’s Latino population is half of that of its home county. Responses varied as to the direction these numbers are headed. “Cal State Fullerton is gradually increasing the numbers of Latinos to
reflect those demographic changes in the community,” said Isaac Cardenas, chair of Chicano Studies. “We still lack those figures out in the community,” he added. Cardenas pointed out that last Fall’s first-time freshmen totaled 580 for Chicanos and “other Hispanics,” the highest Latino new freshman enrollment to date. As Cardenas explained, Latino enrollment has traditionally been less because many Latino households in Orange County are immigrant families. Their
children, when they do attend college, are often the first in their families to receive any education beyond the high school level. Rosanna Valenzuela, vice president of the Independent Latino Student Association, agrees that Latino students are still trying to catch up to the present. “I think back then there weren’t many Latinos in Orange County and that now the numbers going to the university are

Class of 1998 has chance to leave mark on campus n PLEDGE: Graduation seniors may
contribute to updating the campus image, giving the school something to remember them by. By NATHAN ORME
Daily Titan Executive Editor Seniors getting their diplomas this year will get the chance to give back to campus through the Senior Gift program, which is coordinated by the Office of Annual Giving, a fundraising division of University Advancement. A group of seniors organized by Mala Folsom, director of Annual Giving, voted to raise money for a new sign at the front of Langsdorf Hall. The current sign, said Folsom, is actually an old one with the old logo and a 20-year-old design. “The reason they chose (the sign) is the old sign is kind of old and ugly,” Folsom. “Besides, it has the logo that hasn’t been used in two years and since the sign is the first thing people see when they come onto campus it should reflect the campus today, which is more modern.” The model of the proposed sign, which Folsom said may still undergo some changes, is of a threepanel granite sign with lighting, trees and a bench.
Mission Viejo campus and has set up an information booth in the Titan Student Union. On March 17, Borsting is planning to hold another forum in the Titan Student Union. He is also planning an informational program for evening students. Last week, AS President Heith Rothman led a question and answer session at the main entry way of the Mission Viejo campus as part of a monthly program called “Coffee talk.” Students will vote March 24 on whether or not to pay $150 each semester to build a sports complex, which AS is proposing. Two polling places will be set up on campus and one will be set up at the Mission Viejo campus. After the students vote, President Milton Gordon will then decide whether to start the four-year process of building this complex. As she answered students’ questions, Yvonne Lara, chair of the AS Board of Directors, said, “The president will use the students’ votes as a gauge and guide. Hypothetically, he could approve the building of the complex if all the students vote no on it, but he hasn’t done that in the past.” The informal debate session was based on whether or not students would be willing to pay an extra $150 per semester beginning fall 1998 to build this center, which will include a special events arena, gymnasium, locker rooms, a state-of-theart fitness center, aerobic rooms, racquetball courts, and a baby-sitting area. The fitness center would hypothetically be open from 6 a.m. to midnight. Students who have graduated from the university will be allowed to use the center free of charge as long as they have paid the $150 fee. Lara said a fitness complex like the one proposed to be built here was opened

Office switch to help bring better service n ADMINISTRATION: Stu-
dent Affairs officials reorganize with hope of improving efficiency. By Cindy Jimenez Daily Titan Staff Writer
The Division of Student Affairs expanded to include a new associate vice president of Student Academic Services, University Outreach programs and the Office of Enrollment Management, beginning March 9. President Milton Gordon announced his approval for the reorganization in a memorandum on March 2 to Vice President of Student Affairs Robert Palmer. Gordon’s memorandum was a response to Palmer’s proposals and modifications of the Division of Student Affairs. In his memorandum, Gordon said the decision to relocate the programs to the Division of Student Affairs “is the right decision,” at the right time and he commends the efforts of all parties involved. Silas Abrego will become the second associate vice president for Sudent Affairs along with Charles Buck, who already holds the position.

She said in the past the judicial process has been “in pieces,” separate from the university. A student panel was responsible for addressing the problems as they occurred. Disciplinary actions and punishments placed on student organizations were judged in a case-by-case manner. The new judicial process will establish a uniform set of rules and standards.

Local families with children ages 3 months to 12 years interested in hosting an au pair exchange participant from Europe, Japan, South Africa or Frenchspeaking Canada are being sought by this non-profit organization. Au Pairs are young adults between the age of 18 and 26, who have chosen to take a year off between school terms to live with an American family. They help care for the family’s children in exchange for the opportunity to learn more about America’s culture and language in a way that can only happen through homestay experience.

The move will facilitate the creation of a process that will further define what the standards are for all students. “It is a better fit,” Palmer said of the move. Keith said she is also happy with the move. “I think it is important that students are part of the whole judicial function,” Keith said. Keith said the judicial process is seen as separate from the rest of the university. Palmer said there will be a lot of hands-on in the judicial affairs office as it works with student clubs, organizations and activities. He said the judicial officer will work hard to help students be responsible and “take pride” as they strive to adhere to the highest standards.

Jean Tebbe worked for Titan Shops for ten years during which time she embodied the ideal of...
Dedication and Hard Work • By Mitch Greenwood • n a day and age when people are looking for short cuts to get by, it is hard to find anyone who is willing to work hard and give it their best. Professors complain about students who do their assignments halfheartedly; employers complain about apathetic employees who goof off on the job and some workers want to work the least number of hours for unreasonable amounts of money. Reliability and dependability can be hard to find in people, unless you have met Jean Tebbe. Tebbe was the senior operations manager of the Titan bookstore who recently retired. She served CSUF for 26 years in different capacities and was involved in different projects to help improve the bookstore for people. “I never thought of my job as a career even though now it has become one,” Tebbe said. “When I first began I used to think that I would move on to something else. However, one project followed another and now, 26 years have past and I have really enjoyed my job.” Tebbe began working at CSUF in the foundation in December of 1971. She worked in the foundation administrative office for 11 years, at which time she came to the bookstore. There, she worked for ten years, from 1983 to 1993. Tebbe said she temporarily went back to the foundation and two years later returned to the bookstore in April of 1995, where she became Senior Operations Manager of the bookstore. “What I enjoyed most about my
career at CSUF was the people I worked with,” Tebbe said. “I enjoyed the interaction with my co-workers and I tried to help them in any way that I could. In the work place I enjoy seeing people enjoy their work. It made for a better atmosphere on the job.” Tebbe served on the telephone task force when the new phones were selected a year ago. She also served on the task force for the seismic program on campus, when the buildings were reinforced to withstand earthquakes. The remodeling of the bookstore was her last project before retirement. Her last project involved supervising the remodeling of the bookstore, which meant keeping an eye on contractors and architects; making sure the schedule, buildout plans and budget limits were kept. “I feel great about being part of projects that are making significant changes for people,” Tebbe said. “I feel a sense of accomplishment when I think that what I have done will benefit people in the future.” Tebbe is moving to Henderson, Nevada with her husband Walt. They plan to rest for two months and then become involved with volunteer work. They also plan to spend more time with their five children and five grandchildren. “I am an active person and it will be hard to make the transition from working to retirement,” Tebbe said. “I will have all this time on my hands, which I am not use to having. It will be a challenge

I am going to miss her smiling face.” Jerry Olson, director of the bookstore and Tebbe’s boss, praised her as an employee. “Jean would always go the extra mile,” Olson said. “She was reliable, dependable, efficient and punctual. When I gave her an assignment to do, she had it back on my desk complete and with no mistakes. I could always trust her and depend on her to do her job. I valued her input and advice she gave to help me with different problems. Tebbe is strongly devoted to her family. She did not allow her job responsibilities to take her away from her family.
n BLOOD: Students at CSUF donate a bit of their time and
a pint of their blood to a worthy cause. By Joe Florkowski Daily Titan Staff Writer
Students at Cal State Fullerton were using needles on Wednesday. They weren’t engaged in any illegal activity or drug use; in fact, they were using needles for a good cause: a blood drive. The blood drive was held in the Titan Student Union in Ontiveros Room C from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The blood drive, which takes place once a semester, is also being held on Thursday for students who missed out on Wednesday. The Student Health Professions Association (SHPA) coordinated the blood drive in association with the Red Cross. The association is comprised of students who are looking towards careers in the medical and dental professions. Ben Kavoossi, vice president of the association, is responsible for coordination of the event. On Wednesday, 60 out of 70 people showed up to give blood, he said. The drive will continue through Thursday and walk-in donors will be taken. A group like the Red Cross would usually have to pay to use a room in the Union, but because they were invited by a campus organization they are using the facilities free of charge. Students gave several reasons for giving blood during Wednesday’s drive.
“I just felt I could help people,” said Komail Mooman, 19. “It’s not that hard to do.” Greg Tonkovich, 25, has given blood three times in the past. Today, he’s bored. “I had an extra hour to kill between classes,” he said. “When you drink afterwards you get buzzed real easy,” Tonkovich added. Drinking alcohol is not recommended after giving blood because it can lead to dehydration. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting are also not recommended by the Red Cross. Donors are also advised not to skip any meals and to drink extra liquids in the 24 hours after giving blood. To give blood, one must be in good health, at least 17 years old, and weigh at least 110 pounds. Unsafe sexual activity or drug use are activities that might disqualify a potential donor. For some students, giving blood is especially important. Yvonne Lara, 22, has O-negative blood, which can be donated to anyone. People with A, B, or AB blood types can receive O-negative blood. However, people with O-negative blood cannot accept blood from any but O-negative donors. “I just think it’s important to give blood and contribute back to society,” Lara said. She has tried to get several people she knows to donate blood in the past two weeks, even though she
this semester at San Diego State. “They took a recent survey at San Diego State and the most popular thing at the university, they found, was this fitness center. It blew everything out of the water.”
“Given the benefits to the campus of the Fitness Center ... this is a high priority issue for the University,” Hagan’s memo stated. Hagan was unavailable for personal comment.

growing,” Valenzuela said. “As the numbers continue to grow, we’ll see more going to the university.” Jesus Millan, a counselor with the Upward Bound Program, deals heavily with Santa Ana high school students, preparing them for the transition to university level demands. He sees additional problems affecting college enrollment “The public schools are somewhat limited to do any recruiting because of Proposition 209,” he said. “It’s really hard to try and do anything.” Millan feels that more efforts must be made to give college-bound students examples that will make them feel that a university education is both feasible and desirable. “I think one very, very important thing is to have a very effective mentoring program,” Millan said. “That’s what students
She has four sons and a daughter and five grandsons. “While I was growing up, my mother has always been a friend to me as well as a mom,” said her son Don. “She always has been there for me providing her love and support, which enable me to trust in her. I appreciate that she considers other people’s needs more than herself. She demonstrated this in the home with the family and with people in the work place. She is a woman of integrity and I am a blessed man, because of who my mom is.” Sean, one of Tebbe’s other sons, shared similar feelings about his mother. He used a verse from the Bible that he felt described his mother the best. “Many daughters have done virtuously, but you excel them all (Proverbs 31:29). What I mean by that verse is that many women have done good and noble things, but my mom exceeds them all.” need. They need to see a role model that is responsible and that actually has the time to set aside for them.” Even though Proposition 209 has had a negative effect, Millan would like to see something counter those effects. “I think if public funding could be channeled to expose students to programs like tutoring and taking students on more college field trips and educational field trips it would help motivate them,” Millan said. Millan also feels that more community participation is necessary. “We have to set a time aside to actually go out there and tell the students what steps they have to take to pursue a college education,” Millan said. “We don’t need people who just say ‘I care.’ We need people to actually go out there.”

Titans pound Pepperdine with help of solid hitting n BASEBALL: Pitcher Car-
ralejo’s triple play fuels 12-2 CSUF win. By LANDON NEGRI
Daily Titan Staff Writer For one team on Wendesday night, the winning streak remained intact. The other team looked like it was a wonder that it ever put a winning streak together in the first place. Cal State Fullerton’s baseball team ripped Pepperdine for 16 hits and the Titans won for the ninth time in 10 tries with a convincing 12-2 non conference drubbing of the Waves in front of 815 fans at Titan Field. The victory snapped the Waves’ sevengame winning streak.
“As I told our guys before and after the game, Pepperdine’s been a tough team for us,” Titan Head Coach George Horton said. “They beat us twice last year, and against them, things aren’t always easy. You don’t expect to hit on all cylinders like that.” But the Waves were no match on this night. Greg Jacobs and Reed Johnson each smacked four hits each for the Titans, but the run-producer on the night was Chris Beck, who went 2-for-5 with a first-inning home run and five RBI. And CSUF (3-0 in the Big West, 15-6 overall) got it done on defense, too, alertly scoring a rare triple play. In the second inning, Titan starter George Carralejo (2-0) made a diving catch on a pop-up by Dave Sugden with G.J. Raymundo on second base and Dane
Sardinda on first for the Waves (3-0, 1210-1). Both baserunners advanced before realizing Carralejo had caught the ball. The necessary relay throws were made as the Titans tallied their first triple play since May 1, 1996. Beck kick started the offense when he homered the first offering from Wave starter Steve Schnenewerk in the first inning to give the Titans a quick 3-0 lead. “He just hung a curve,” said Beck of the pitch. “I took a good swing, and I got a hold of it pretty good. ... I think we just came out focused and ready to take our game to them.” And the Titans kept it going. David Bacani tripled in the second inning, scoring Craig Patterson. Johnson hit a sacri-

No room for second chances in the Sprewell choking incident Erin Whiteside
hy is it that lately, whenever professional sports try to right thems elves , they have to then go and do something completely moronic? The latest decision in the NBA has left me shaking my head in disbelief. In an arbitration case, Latrell Sprewell’s one year suspension for attacking his coach was sliced in half, so he will be reinstated to the league in July. Now, as you may recall, Sprewell was suspended without pay for one full year after he threatened and went after his Golden State Warrior coach, P.J. Carlesimo, and then proceeded to choke him. The NBA, and in turn the arbitrator, completely turned this thing inside out, treating it like a fight in a game where they could review the tapes and, after some debate, lessen the punishment. This is such a backwards way of look-
ing at the situation. What happened was cut and dry, plain and simple. Sprewell was wrong, and there are consequences for your actions. The punishment should be as basic as that. Instead, the NBA continued to allow the players to rule in the league that is now lacking any kind of senior leadership and authority whatsoever. To its credit, the NBA started things off in the right direction by laying down the law and punishing Sprewell with the hefty suspension. The punishment fit the crime, and in the era of bad attitudes, and public disapproval of today’s players, the NBA needed to send a message. And send a message it did. The league was completely justified in what it did. All that garbage about racial bias against Sprewell was totally irrational. Anyone else would be fired from his or her job permanently and probably would be in court facing possible jail time. But, Sprewell was allowed to appeal the decision in order to get a second chance. My question is, why was he even
allowed to do this? It is here where things get out of hand. A decision handed down by the commissioner should be final, with no appeals allowed. If players knew that they had no chance to lessen their punishments, they might be less inclined to act without thinking. However, now they know that it isn’t the league itself, the commissioner, the coaches or even the owners of the team that have all the control. It’s the players. And now, those athletes, with threats like boycotting the All-Star Game, control what happens within the league. The NBA needs to regain the authority it once had. The number of strong leaders on the court is dwindling as retirement eats away at the senior leadership.

fice fly, and Greg Jacobs hit his first home run of the year to give the Titans a 6-0 lead after the second inning. RBI-singles by Patterson, Johnson and Beck in the third extended the Titans’ lead to 9-0. And it left Horton happier about the 12 singles than CSUF’s power display. “That was our best sustained offensive performance of the year,” Titan Head Coach George Horton said. “Especially with the type of balls that were hit and the areas we hit into. We did exactly what we were trying to do.” Titans relievers, meanwhile, were impressive. Jason Stewart and Adam Johnson closed out the game in the eighth and ninth innings, as they both struck out the side, Johnson doing it on nine pitches.
Greg Jacobs swings at a pitch in the fifth inning of last night’s game. Jacobs went 4-4 at the plate and pitched two innings.

Outside the law, inside Lewinsky
Mary Lou Glines
ike a research scientist studies a lethal microbe, President Clinton’s sexual hungers are being examined from the allegations of Paula Jones to the illegal tapes of malcontent, Linda Tripp which released the dreaded disease known as “Lewinsky Gate.” Now the man who opened such a malignant Pandora’s Box with his expose referred to as “Trouper Gate,” is saying he’s sorry. Sorry he ever wrote the story. In an interview with Charlie Gibson on “Good Morning America,” David Brock discussed his open apology to Clinton, which was published in this months issue of Esquire Magazine. Brock says he now doubts his sources, that they are beginning to look rather questionable. He further stated that he considered it wrong for the chief executive to be questioned concerning his private ‘affairs’ while in office. No kidding. What changed? Brock said he has discovered that maybe his sources weren’t quite as trustworthy as he originally believed, which has no doubt

Speaking of a snafu:
Dear Letters to the Editor: you may have already heard by now that snafu is a strategic and frequently used military term. It is an anagram that stands for “situation normal, all fouled up.” I know you thought the F stood for something else. But seriously, there is only one F. Ergo, SNAFU - no stuttering aloud, I mean allowed.
Two views about the ‘gay vs. Scout’ thing Who are we to judge?
Recently the news have made a circus of the legal developments in the further struggle toward ending discrimination. I have been very amused particularly by the debate over whether the Boy Scouts can be forced to allow a homosexual male to be a member or leader of a troop. The most vivid argument used by those against allowing homosexuals into the Boy Scouts is that the Scouts should not have to allow anyone into their ranks who hold different moral/ethical views. While it is certainly true that no one should be forced to accept another person’s morality (or perceived lack there of), what I wish to submit is that the boy scouts view homosexuality as immoral or sinful behavior. As such, homosexuals cannot be discriminated against any more than the boy scouts could prohibit people who lie, cheat or steal from joining their ranks. The great debate continues because many conservatives are labeling one “sin” as MORE “sinful” than others, solely based on the more public nature of homosexual behavior. If conservatives were truly consistent, they would recognize the paradox inherent in “legis-
lating” against one sin while permitting private “sins” to go on unchecked (as they SHOULD BE). Not even private organizations can claim to be in the practice of reasonably and effectively policing members adherence to their moral laws. Aren’t we supposed to leave that to God? Who is to say which of us lives in a greater state of sin than the person next to us? No one is perfect. Everyone at some point strays from their chosen code of values. The difference is that what people do behind closed doors is more easily condemned than the breaches committed within the dark recesses of our hearts. Although the Boy Scouts have every right to set what they deem as an appropriate moral standard, they cannot claim to know if those standards are actually being upheld. Unless they can determine that EVERY member obeys EVERY tenet at ALL TIMES, then denying one group admittance based on their “sinful/immoral/unnatural behavior” is as ridiculous as kicking out every boy or leader who has ever told a lie or broken a promise or in any way disobeyed even ONE of the Ten Commandments.

Keep gays out of Scouts
Joe Florkowski’s rather strange article on ‘Gays in the Boy Scouts’ threw me for a loop. Most of the way through, it appears as if he agrees (at least secretly) that gays have no place in such an organization. Yet towards the end of his article, he seems to support it. Which is it? Actually, Joey needs to delve a little deeper into the gay vs. the Scouts thing. I doubt anyone within the Boy Scouts organization fears that inclusion of gays would turn anyone gay. That’s an argument put forth by leaders of the gay agenda who seem to think that the average citizen is an idiot. No, the fear is that by permitting such people to be scout leaders, that such people will set a wrong example—that homosexual behavior is normal and that there is nothing wrong with it. There’s the fear that children will grow up thinking that a behavior God forbids is perfectly all right, which it is not. I hope the Boy Scouts defy the court ruling; that’s what I’d do. Tolerance of others is fine, but tolerance of sinful behavior is not. Michael White Graduate student, Journalism

Simon says tell your AS to shove it So Rothmann thinks that his organizations should be above the OSL rules, eh? I’m not surprised. What does surprise me, however, is that this $300 per year fee (that’s $1,200 for incoming freshmen) can be approved if just one person votes, and that one person votes for it. The Associated Students at UC, Riverside, are also proposing a $35 tax on their subjects, but for this tax to pass at least 20% of the student population MUST vote. Why is there no such requirement at CSUF? To anyone considering voting for this tax: What has AS done for you, besides sending you a free folder and a CSUF sticker when you enrolled? The only presence of AS I notice comes right around registration time when I discover that my wallet is $140 lighter... No taxation without representation! Show Rothmann who is in charge of this campus! Keep the Associated Student’s hands out of your wallet! Send e-mail to the editor to express your disgust over this tax hike! Vote NO on the “AS tax hike of 1998!” Charles Delgadillo Junior, History
Top ten reasons why the Little Professor beats the Titan bookstore... I owe my loyalty to the bookstore that has been loyal to me over the past eight or nine years, and that bookstore has not been the Titan Shops; it has been the Little Professor. Shall I list the reasons why? Let me begin . . . 1. Until I stopped ordering books from Titan, I experienced one frustration after another with ordering books. Titan never consulted me when books were, for whatever reason, not available. I would go to class and discover that the books weren't in. When I would then call Titan, I would be told that the book was not in print and I'd have to find a substitute; never, of course, in time to get the substitute before classes began. This did not happen once; it happened with alarming regularity. In fact, it happened so often that I began to expect it, but I never accepted that this was the way business ought to be done. 2. On one very memorable occasion, I went to my class in Mission Viejo, only to learn that the book (the only one I use and use every week and the single most popular anthology in use on college and university campuses in the United States) would not be available because a new edition would not be out for two months. No one bothered to call me. If they had, I could have told them that I had already spoken with the publisher's representative and that the publisher would be able to make available the older edition to me. That, in terms of failure to consult, was the last straw. I went so far as to write to Titan Shops, sending copies of my letter to my chair, to the director of the Mission Viejo campus, and to the manager involved. I
received no response from Titan Shops--not an apology, not an acknowledgment that there had been a problem, nothing. 3. After I announced publicly my intention "never to darken the Titan Shops' doorstep with book orders again," a very disturbing event occurred. A graduate student of mine worked in the bookstore. The management badgered him (I can't think of a kinder word) until he came to me, embarrassed and humiliated, to ask me why I did not place my book orders through Titan. At first, I did not want to involve him in my own disputes (this did not seem to be a concern of Titan management, however), but I finally explained my reasons to him, which, I believe, he related to his employers, as they had asked him to do. To me, this behavior is completely inexcusable. Knowing that my student's employers would stoop to such unethical conduct gives me even greater reason to find a bookstore that does have ethical standards and sticks to them. 4. Titan Shops lies. I can't think of a nicer way to say it. I have had my students tell me time and again in the past that Titan employees have told them that the reason books were not on the shelves was that "The professor didn't get the order in in time." In our department, book orders are due months before the semester begins--for fall, our book orders are due in March or April. I always get my orders in on time. I resent being made the butt of someone else's incompetence. 5. The Little Professor took on a difficult task when they began ordering books for me and my colleagues. They have been cooperative, honest,
and efficient. They have been doing my orders since I wrote that unanswered letter to Titan Shops at least eight years ago. They have, from the first day, been loyal to me; as I am, I believe, an ethical person, I owe the management of The Little Professor the same loyalty that they have given me--a loyalty that I have not gotten from Titan Shops. 6. In the past, Titan Shops and its supporters have tried to pressure those of us who do not use Titan Shops by invoking the spirit of 'fair play' and the mantra of 'equal access' to all students. I have never been accused by any student of mine of being unfair, nor have I ever had a student complain to me that he or she found it inconvenient, much less impossible, to go off campus to buy books. If one of my students could not, for some reason, get to The Little Professor to buy books, then I would get them for him or her. However, need I remind anyone, this is a commuter campus; virtually all of our students have cars or avail themselves of some other form of transportation. How else do they get home, to their jobs, to school? 7. As for not supporting CSUF and the Foundation, I support the CSUF Foundation by donating a portion of my paycheck to it every single month. I do not, however, believe that it is my duty to continue to support an organization on this campus which has made virtually no effort to support me in the past. Furthermore, I am proud to have the privilege to teach at this institution. I am loyal to my university, but I am more fiercely loyal to my students. I am responsible for their education, and on a
campus where "Learning is pre-eminent," I cannot see how learning can occur when books cannot be bought. When books are not available to students, then teaching is not possible, much less learning. I teach literature; I must have books. When the campus bookstore cannot or will not insure that those books are available on the very first day of class, I will find and have found a more reliable supplier. 8. This is not, however, an issue of "when Titan Shops fixes the problem, I'll drop The Little Professor." That, it seems to me, would be not only disloyal but virtually un-American. Isn't it the principle of free enterprise that one shops where one gets the best and most prompt service, the best value, the best product? And isn't it also axiomatic that one remains a loyal customer until that business no longer fulfills those criteria? The Little Professor has earned and deserves to continue to have my loyalty; they continue to fulfill those criteria. 9. Jerry Olson has said that given our booklists and "an equal playing field" he would charge the same price for our books as The Little Professor does. However, he does not say that he will charge, as The Little Professor does, cost for all textbooks, only those ordered by the English Department. In other words, no competition, no compunction. It is interesting to note that Titan Shops has made a strenuous effort recently to meet Little Professor's prices, something they would NEVER have done if The Little Professor did not exist. Our students have benefitted from this, and they know it. Titan Shops doesn't actually want to
compete; it wants us to help them put The Little Professor out of business. 10. The Daily Titan's article and Jerry Olson's reported comments trivialize my complaints by saying, in effect, that my complaints come from past behaviors, that they have nothing to do with current bookstore management, and that I'm being petty. True, I cannot speak from recent experience as to Titan Shops' current practices. However, I do talk to my colleagues, and one practice seems not to have been discontinued. Titan Shops routinely reduced the number of books I would order for large survey courses which meant that extra books had to be ordered after classes were in session. I understand, from a part time colleague, that that practice has not been abandoned. I know how many students will enroll in my classes; she knows how many seats are in her room and how many students will fill them. This practice assumes that either we can't count or we have an inflated opinion of our popularity. Check the enrollment in our classes. Books can be and are routinely returned to the publisher. This is not a trivial matter. Nor are our complaints about Titan Shops. Furthermore, we are not the only department on campus which uses The Little Professor; the article makes it seem that we stand alone against a sea of 'loyal' professors who stand steadfastly beside Titan Shops. Check the shelves at The Little Professor. Joanne Gass Associate Professor and Vice Chair Dept. Of English and Comparative Literature

Catch the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies B y NATHAN ORME Daily Executive Editor
Cherries will be poppin’ all over the place this afternoon when the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies swing into the Pub for a noontime concert. Associated Students Productions is putting on the show, which should be the best one ASP has sponsored all year. The Daddies have, with their most recent album “Zoot Suit Riot,” joined the ranks of the evergrowing “neo-swing” movement, which includes the likes of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and the Squirrel Nut Zippers. Some of these bands are
equally little-known on their merits but slightly more well-known for their movie appearances: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s cameo at the end of “Swingers” and Royal Crown Revue as the backdrop to Jim Carrey in “The Mask.” If you’re still clueless about the band, the title track of the Daddies’ new album is getting a lot of play-time on KROQ these days. I expect their performance will reflect this album, which is made up of a few new songs but mostly of songs from their three previous albums that had been labeled as leaning toward ska. One thing that is refreshing about their album is that all of the music is original, with songs written by lead singer Steve Perry. Finally, a swing band that doesn’t do a cover of “Minnie the Moocher.” All of Perry’s songs are danceable, though not too original in overall sound. The only really original swing band these days is Squirrel Nut Zippers and the only reasee DADDIES / 5

Wade Wielding, Jr. bares his soul in his photo exhibit “Soul Shell: A Journey Into the Heart of Loss and Abandonment.”
Wade Wielding, Jr. finds meaning in dead architec-
By CHRISTOPHER LAMB Daily Titan Staff Writer Communicating hope through the visual art of photography. That’s the idea behind the exhibit “Soul Shell: A Journey Into the Heart of Loss and Abandonment,” on display today at the Exit Gallery in the Visual Arts Building. The exhibit is a collection of fourteen photos taken of abandoned and desolate house in California. Wade Wieding Jr., a visual arts major with an emphasis in photography at Cal State Fullerton got the idea for his exhibit on a car trip. “I had just come from a failed relationship and during this car trip, the
abandoned houses seemed like people during loss, an empty shell, and I realized my feelings were not unique,” Wieding said. Wieding grew up in Southern California and attended Cypress College. He then attended the San Francisco Academy of Art before deciding to come home to finish his degree at CSUF. Wieding said he uses photography as his medium because he feels he gets the best results with it. After getting his degree, Wieding intends to pursue his masters in Art Education. Wieding had been part of a previous mixed media show, “Bondage Too...,” at Cypress, but this is his first exhibition at CSUF. Wieding’s friend Michael
Barnees said Wieding has come a long way since his previous work. “Its about learning,” Wieding said. “I learned through experience and this show alone... It’s intense to say the least.” During the opening, people wandered around the gallery, some just looking at the photographs; others reading the artist’s prepared pamphlet while studying the photos. Many people gathered to ask questions and discuss the exhibit. One alumna, Lisa, who declined to give her last name, was among the people who enjoyed the opening. “I like the theme, it was a moving, see SOUL / 5

tained, because we have more variety in the programs this year,” said Dance professor Macarena Gandarillas. The Spring Dance is composed of eight programs choreographed by CSUF students and faculty. There are three pieces by dance students: “Suburban Semi-Suite,” choreographed by J.J. Fagan; “Rhodes to Nowhere,” by Heather Duffer; and “Self-Portrait” by Kara Cross. “Self-Portrait” is a piece about a character engaged in examining herself with the other dancers acting as aspects of the character, Cross said. “There is a lot of opportunity for dancers in this show. There’s no time to worry or think about it, you just do it,” she said. “Suburban Semi-Suite” is about a character in suburban life with big movement in it, Fagan said. “You benefit from the experience of Spring Dance, and it’s a lot of fun,” Fagan said. Professor Barbara Arms said the stu-
dents have to audition their pieces for the Spring Dance Theatre. She said the advanced students generally audition because they have been studying long enough to have ideas and know what their dance is about. She also said the Spring Dance benefits more than just the dance students. “The Spring Dance has costumes and set design work for students in those areas, things that have nothing to do with the dance,” Arms said. “We collaborate very well, it’s a complete educational process.” The Spring Dance Theatre is not only for students. There are five programs by faculty: “Allegro Spiritoso,” choreographed by Robin Johnson; “Shades of Fashion,” conceived and designed by Todd Muffatti, choreographed by Gladys Kares; “Overture,” choreographed by Barbara Arms; “Spellbound” and “Diva” both choreographed by Macarena Gandarillas. Gandarillas, an expert in jazz, is the only person choreographing two of the pieces this year. She said her two pieces, “Diva” and “Spellbound” are very technically difficult jazz pieces. “My dancers have to have a strong

son they are original is because they make music like it was done back in the 1920s and 1930s. Cherry Poppin’ Daddies sound like a lot of other bands these days, not to say that they aren’t good or that any of the other bands aren’t good. They all reflect modern music tastes toward medium, fast and faster. Hard and fast drum beats and blaring trumpets are most evident in this up-tempo music. It is hard to pick out any songs as being standouts: “Zoot Suit Riot” is cool (hence the radio play), as is the sec-
ond song “Ding-Dong Daddy of the D-Car Line.” Track four, “Here Comes the Snake” takes a break from the fast pace and takes on a slower blusey rhythm while track six, “Come Back to Me,” sounds like an ode to Frank Sinatra with its emphasis on lyrics with a big band orchestra backing up Perry’s vocals. “Dr. Bones” starts out with a very short drum solo reminiscent of Gene Krupa in the swing classic “Sing, Sing, Sing” before going into a hard core swing song. Tinges of rockabilly and Elvis pop up in “Cherry Poppin’ Daddy Strut,” a song which Perry credits with starting the band off on the swing trail.

interesting metaphor,” she said. About thirty people attended the opening on Friday night. Wieding’s friends and family members also attended, snapping pictures and talking to people at the opening. Wieding’s father said he was proud of his son’s achievement. “Maybe I’m biased, but he put in a
lot of hard work and the exhibit is well put together. I was impressed,” said Wade Wieding, Sr. According to Wieding, Jr., for art to be good it should be understandable conceptually and visually to the audience. He said each photo in the series should be able to stand on its own and stand as part of the whole series. “Art is a communication form, with the series I want it to work on multiple levels for the audience,” Wieding said.
