Playing it safe with spirit . . . Students at the
U. of Calif., Santa Barbara (UCSB) will now be able to
practice safe sex whilst wielding the Gaucho blue and gold.
College Condoms was begun last year when Campus
Condoms president Nick Fogel was watching a U. of North
Carolina NCAA basketball tournament game and noticed
another viewer who was completely outfitted in the U. of
North Carolina's Tar Heel colors. Fogel recalls the joking
comment he made that night through which his idea was
boon: "He could probably wear Tar Heel condoms also."
NewJersey-based Circle vubber, which manufacnures Col-
lege Condoms, makes the third-highest quality condom in
the United States, and with a new order underway for
10,000 gross, College Condoms is now one of their largest
clients. Fogel said, "We're keeping this very clean," he
said. "Our main slogan is 'Make the educated choice.' "
Fogel's company offersthree color combinations: blue and
yellow, blue and red, and red and yellow. Introducing black,
orange, green and maroon condoms wilt glue College
Condoms 12 tv 15 university color combinations, "which
wiTl cover almost all schools," he said. Reactions to the
product at UCSB have been mixed. Sophmore Shannon
Stone said, "I wouldn't buy them just because they have the
students' colors ... Isn't sex interesting enough? If they
were quality condoms and the cheapest, I'd buy them."

Hudson made large scale backgrounds and used an instant
Polaroid camera to make the IDs. He sold them for $30 and
$50. After his arrest, the UP attempted to track down
students who bought the IDs. Two students were found
when their IDs were confiscated at Tampa bars. None ofvthe
students were prosecuted, Staehle said. "Bouncers are
really looking for these things," Staehle said. "To the
trained eye, it's almost impossible to make duplicates."

Phoning in cheaters .. . The Student Honor
Court at U. of Florida (UF) wants students to dial
misconduct. Court officials recently asked Student Govern-
ment for the money to officially start the court's academic
honesty hot line for students to call and anonymously
report suspected cheating. Student Body Vice President i
Valerie Hartung said of the hot line, "It's not that big of an
expense, and it it does what it's supposed to do, then itwill
only help the University af Florida." Honor Court Chancel
lor Rich Newsome said that once a call comes in, the Honor
court will notify the professor and let he or she decide how
to handle the report of possible cheating. Honor court
officials cannot take any punitive action based on a phone
call. "The Honor Code is really just a statement - it has no
teeth to it," he said. But the hot line will give stude*
chance to enforce the code themselves and main n
academic integrity at UF, Newsome said. Steve Car-

Vying to judge ... Though the job doesn't payand
the hours can be long, 200 U. of-Georgia students have
applied for the 60 jobs with the University's Judicial
Program. "This organization allows students to take full
part in the decision making process here at the Univel
said Bill Bracewell, director oftJudicial Programs. Sele
focuses on three areas. "First they must show us their
writing skills. Secondly, we test how well they perform in a
group by giving them a problem to solve along with about
seven other candidates. Finally, we conduct a ... one -on
seven interview which involves members o1 the judicial
program, the police department, the Student Association,
the Residence Hall Association and the faculty," Bracewell
said. Ethics is always an issue, Bracewell said. "Obviously,
some of these justices have broken the very same rules
which they must protect. How then can they pass judge-
ment on others?" Bracewell asked. Julie Lynch, a senior
pre-law major and ChieftJustice of the 17-member Judi'I
Council, said, "The interview was very intimidating,
think that's good. The student needs to realize thet they will
take part in several intimidating experiences when sitting
on the bench." . Chris Boone, The Red and
