rolled closer to war yesterday, as both houses of Congress voted in favor
of a resolution authorizing military action in Iraq. The House of Representatives
voted 296-133, and the Senate joined them early this morning, 77-23.
the ’Sco’s first major rock act of the semester, Low took
the stage Friday night to a packed house and a willing audience. Despite
their hushed harmonies and minimalist melodies, enough of the essential
intimacy of the Duluth, Minnesota trio’s sound managed to assert
itself above the clang of breaking beer bottles and the rumble of laughter
and shuffling feet. With admirable support from long-time American Music
Club frontman Mark Eitzel, the evening proved to be as emotionally cathartic
as it was a positive start to the fall concert schedule.
College field hockey team has taken their game to the next level and shown
evidence that they have indeed improved.
To the Editors:
We as members of the Asian Pacific American Studies Committee
are writing a response to last week’s article, “National Group
Boycotts Sociology Position Search,” and the editorial piece entitled
“College Diversity Not Reflected in Tenure.” We would like
to make clarifications regarding the issues presented in the article and
editorial. The pieces focus on the dissonance between the Association
for Asian American Studies (AAAS) and Oberlin College. However, as evidenced
by the quotes within the article, the AAAS as an organization is NOT BOYCOTTING
Oberlin College. Rather, several specific members have decided to sign
a petition supporting the case of Antoinette Charfauros-McDaniel. The
article headline portrays the entire Asian American Studies caucus as
fully supporting Antoinette Charfauros. We as students are more concerned
with the development of Comparative American Studies, the future of Asian
Pacific American studies at Oberlin College, and the communication between
students, administration and sociology department. The pieces in the Review
obscure the issues that are of greater importance and ultimately oversimplify
the nature of the situation.
