Freshmen face old
rules over break
By ELIZABETH ATKINS
Excitement about Thanksgiving recess is
cushioning students' worries about papers, finals, and
end-of-the-term blues, but after months of virtually
unrestricted freedom at college, many students -
especially freshmen - have difficulty adjusting to
their parents' rules, curfews, and questions.
For some students, this four-day break will be the
longest amount of time they have spent at home
since the beginning of the semester.
Jane Hassinger, a Residential College social
worker, said freshmen's new-found independence can
be disturbed when they return home and discover that
their relationships with their parents have changed.
"A whole question of identity is what a freshman
must deal with: competencies about developing social
skills, setting goals, and following through,
mastering University requirements, dealing with
'We stress to parents at orientation the need to openly talk and negotiate.'

sexuality, and learning to express oneself," said Jane
Hassinger, a Residential College social worker.
Students' political and religious philosophies,
which were based on those of their parents all their
lives, may become more liberal or conservative at
college, Hassinger said,. and parents are sometimes
frightened when they see how quickly their children
Hassinger added, however, that many students see
Thanksgiving recess as "just a welcome break" from
the anxieties and ambiguities of college life.
LSA sophomore Rob Levine definitely falls into
that category. "The best thing about going home is
being able to eat whenever you want, not just when
the dorm cafeterias are open," he said.
According to Harold Korn, a psychology professor
and director of counseling services, most of the
parent-child tension when students go home stems
from disputes over drinking and staying out late.
"We stress to parents at orientation the need to
openly talk and negotiate. The norms of the family
differ tremendously between value systems of different
families," Korn said.
Said Kenneth Silk, a clinical assistant professor of
psychiatry who has done family therapy: "Students go
home and know what parents tolerate. Sometimes
they push the limits, but some just like to know that
they're loved and taken care of."
He explained that the amount of conflict between
parents and college students returning home depends
primarily on their relationship before the students left
"My parents were really liberal during high school,
but I still felt displaced and out of touch when I went
home the first time," said David Hausner, a
Residential College senior and South Quad Resident
Advisor. His feelings of displacement were reinforced

MANILA, Philippines (AP) -
President Corazon Aquino fired her
entire Cabinet, including
controversial Defense Minister Juan
Ponce Enrile, after the army foiled a
coup attempt yesterday by dissident
officers and political foes.
Aquino credited army chief of
staff Gen. Fidel Ramos with taking
"preventative measures against the
recklessness of some elements in

accused the communist rebels, who
have waged a 17-year insurgency, of
showing no interest in peace and
said she would end negotiations if a
cease-fire is not reached this month:
Enrile and other critics accused her
of being soft on the rebels.
Ramos issued a statement
confirming that politicians loyal to
deposed President Ferdinand
Marcos, backed by "some elements
in the military," had planned to set
up a rival government. He said the
situation was under control.
He did not identify the plotters

Students march to
By MICHAEL LUSTIG
Amid cries of "honor Mandela"
and "stop racism," about 100
students encircled the Fleming Ad -
ministration Building Friday to
protest racism on campus.
The march coincided with the
conclusion of the University Board
of Regents meeting. When the.
regents said Thursday they would
not meet with the protesters
because they had to attend a dinner
honoring Niara Sudarkasa, the
University administrator respon-
sible for minority recruitment and
retention, the protesters decided to
march. Sudarkasa is leaving her
post in February.
The demonstrators, a coalition of
members of the Black Student
Union and the Free South Africa
Coordinating Committee, joined to
protest the University's refusal to
confer an honorary degree on jailed
South African leader Nelson
Mandela and to call attention to the
financial problems of minority stu -
FSACC is primarily concerned
with getting the University to give
Mandela an honorary degree. They
also called for the University to
divest its remaining $500,000 in
South Africa-related stocks.
The Black Student Union works
mainly to draw attention to the
financial problems of many minor -
ity students. Black Student Union
President Marvin Woods said Friday
that increasing financial aid awards
for minority students and honoring
Mandela are "interrelated."

students encircling the adminis -
