... but sad as it is, this is the last Sunday Magazine
'till the fall. We hope we've added a touch of joy to other-
wise dreary winter Sundays, and in any event, from our
vantage point we can truthfully say, "Everything was
beautiful and nothing hurt."
Next year, of course, we hope to be better and bigger
in that order. In that pursuit, our newly appointed co-
editors, Laura Berman and Howie Brick, will be soaking
up valuable professional experience this summer. Ms.
Berman will be reporting for Knight Newspapers' Wash-

ington Bureau, Mr. Brick for Pulitzer Prizewinning News-
day. Contributing Editor Mary Long will go to the
Washington Monthly.
For the record, retiring Magazine Editor Martin
Porter will turn it loose for the Atlanta Journal, and
Tony Schwartz will be pursuing a dance career locally.
Design Editor Rolfe Tessem will be filming Tiger Base-

YEAR
(continued from Page 3)
no longer believe we can play
an important role.
A few years ago, faced with
the lack of a role, we created one
--Street Politics - and we all
became street politicians. But
now, we have no energy for that.
Impeachment, important though
it is, is the job of Leon Jawor-
ski and Peter Rodino, and we're
generally content to let them
take care of it. We tune in to
Walter Cronkite every night to
see how they're doing.
COULD fill several volumes
with what didn't happen on
campus this year - LSA re-
forms, stopping construction of a

McDonald's, etc. - but that
makes for rather dreary reading.
So, I search for something that
did happen and I find . .
Streaking. Streaking happened.
It was in all the newspapers, on
the television, and I even saw
streakers one day on the Diag.
When I was home over break,
my parents asked me whether I
thought streaking was "some
kind of protest or something."
The idea had simply never oc-
curred to me. So I thought about
it antecedents before answering.
(Had flag-pole sitting been a
symbolic, existential expression
of the loneliness of modern man?
Was gold-fish swallowing once
an indirect protest against ris-
ing tuna and cod prices?)
"No," I said, ,"I tend to doubt
it."
"So why do they do it?"
I said I didn't know, which is

more or less true, since I'm not
a streaker. But it seems safe to
say that streaking stems from a
desire to shock or offend a
"world-at-large" which seems
otherwise unconscious of our
existence. When I was in high
school, people used to pull down
their pants, and hang the bare
asses out of car windows as they
cruised around town. Sort of a
fleeting "Fuck You" to the
whole world, I guess.

T0 SOME, what I've written
so far is contradicted by the
results of the spring elections.
The Human Rights Party gave
us the chance to vote to control
their landlords and de-control
their marijuana and we respond-
ed by going to the polls in large
numbers. In fact, we even elect-
ed one of their candidates - a
self-proclaimed radical lesbian-
to the city council.
I don't think we were con-
scious, however, of being part of
a trend or counter-trend. Few if
any of us were, during the course
of the campaign, converted into
socialists or homosexuals. And, I
suspect, many of us who voted
for HRP feel no closer to the
party's leadership than we do
to the people on the impeach-
ment or tuition hike committees.
But the Democrats irked many
of us. There was something
deeply cynical about their cam-
paign, as though they werectak-
ing it for granted that we had
become more conservative, lost
our ideals, would refuse to vote
for a radical lesbian.
We students don't like to be-
lieve we are ignorant and bigot-

ed, although many of us are. And
we tend to eventually abandon
politicians who openly insult us
by appealing to these instincts.
(N ELECTION night, I went
with some friends, to cele-
brate at the Del-Rio. Even with
the aid of a series of drinks, the
affair was somewhat wooden:
"Well, how do you feel?"
"Great! I feel real fine. Looks
like HRP is here to stay. They'll
sure keep the Dems on their
toes."
"Yeah. And we got Colburn."
"Yeah. Really."
"I'm real pleased."
"Yeah..... ."
"That exam today was a real
bite!"
"That mother! That was the
worst exam I've ever seen.
'Jesus! 35 pictures in that class
and he's got to pick one of the
three I didn't see."
"I really burned. I think I'll
get a C. Maybe a D."
"Let's not talk about it."
"OK ... you hear from any of
those places yet?"
"Yeah,dthis afternoon."
"What'd they say?"
"They said no. They wanted
someone else. They said they
needed to hire a woman, prefer-
ably a black woman.
"It figures . ."
A ND LATER I left. As I was
walking home, my thoughts
shifted from the fantasy of driv-
ing the Republicans out of City
Hall to the good job I wanted
so bad. I wondered about mak-
ing a choice. I knew what. it
would have been two years ago,
when we were marching together
and the only future was the next
demonstration. And I knew by
contrast what it would be today.
Only it was election night, I
was feeling nostalgic and I didn't
want to think about it.

Trade one tough summer
for two great years.

The Army ROTC Basic Camp. It's tough
because you'll be making up for the entire first two
years of the Army ROTC Four-Year Program. Tiwo
years in only six weeks.
During this time, while we're toughening
up your body a little, we'll be even tougher on your
mind. By asking you to complete a concentrated
course of study covering all the topics you missed.
But when you return to college in the fall,
you can look forward to two pretty great years.

You'll be earning an extra $100 a month, up to ten
months a year. And you'll also be earning an
officer's commission while you're earning your
college degree.
If you're transferring from junior college,
or for some other reason you couldn't take the first
two years of ROTC, look into the Army ROTC
Two-Year Program.
Army ROTC. The more you look at it,
the better it looks.
