They'd Sooner
Smoke a Clove
Strange, the things a school term can be
remembered for. At Oklahoma, late 1983
became the Season of the Clove as a sud-
den and seemingly insatiable demand for
imported clove cigarettes competed for at-
tention with the Sooner football team on
the Norman campus. Everyone from
greeks to New Wavers was smoking
them-at parties, at meals, in the libraries
("I've got to have one when I'm studying,"
says junior Cindy Givens). Demand was so
great that two local tobacconists ran out of
the most popular smokes (Djarum plains
from Indonesia) for most of November, a
period that Meredith Bake calls "the great
outage." Sooners caught up in the fad
don't seem to mind the unusually stiff
prices the cloves demand, $1.65 to $2.05
for a pack of 10. Neither do they seem
bothered by the health hazard posed by the
cigarettes, which are packed with heavy
tobacco. "Cloves are good for a conversa-
tion piece," says junior David Ferguson.
"People like the style of it." Nonsmokers
couldn't care less about the style. They
hate the smell.

Commemorating the Fallen at Kent State

On May 4, 1970, Ohio National Guards-
men opened fire on Kent State students who
were protesting the U.S. invasion of Cam-
bodia, killing four people and wounding
nine. Fourteen years later, controversy con-
tinues on campus and in town about what
happened and how May 4 should be com-
memorated. Now, once again, the school is
trying to create a permanent memorial near
thesiteoftheshootings. "Emotion has over-
ridden intellect," says Kent State president
Michael Schwartz. "It has really taken all
these years to turn that around. The admin-
istration has tried to test the water before
and each time it has watched the divisions
take place." This time the administration

says it is likely that it will get a memorial.
The campus divided in 1977 when a gym-
nasium annex was built at the area of the
shootings. In 1978 a private donor commis-
sioned a sculpture by George Segal, but
the finished piece-inspired by the Biblical
story of Abraham and Isaac-was rejected
becausebsome authorities claimed that it
would be inflammatory. (The sculpture
now stands on the Princeton campus.) Kent
State has recognized May 4 in a variety
of ways, including a small marker on the
site, a library room with contemporary ma-
terial and a statement in the school catalog.
But the effort to erect a major permanent
memorial has never died, and a new univer-
sitywide committee has started from
scratch to find an "appropriate" symbol.
