Remembering names is rarely easy, and it can be
especially difficult for students on a large campus. But
according to one Purdue professor, anyone can dra-
matically improve their recall of names with just a lit-
Mark McDaniel, an associate professor of psycho-
logical sciences who specializes in memory, says that
everyone is guilty of forgetting a name at one time
"When you are introduced to someone, you have
other concerns, such as making a good impression
and wondering, 'What I am going to say?' While you
hear the name, you aren't attending toit sufficiently."
In order to improve memory, McDaniel suggests,
one must pay more attention to names and less to
After meeting someone, repeat the person's name
out loud, he says. This forces one to focus on the person
without allowing other thoughts to interfere.
Associating names with faces can also help.
Learning names one-on-one may not be a problem,
but in a group it often becomes difficult. In these sit-
uations, McDaniel suggests creating a lin
person and name by "taking a cue from

I recently heard an announcement for
a 1969 class reunion that made me won-

were like 20 years ago, when I was still
slurping down strained carrots and

too passionate and revolutionary. But a
decade that cared. It seems light years

Some say there are no more "causes"
worth fighting for with such vigor.
Others argue thatthe causes arein dis-

It might be that our senses have been
numbed -or perhaps dazzled is a better
word - by the dehumanizing lure of
money, power and indulgence.
I met a guy Saturday night whose goal
in life was to be a millionaire by the age
His major is International Trade and
Finance, not because he thinks it will be
an exciting and rewarding career, but
because he will make loads of cash.
I wonder if he even knows what's
involved in that type of work - but I
don't think he cares as long as it makes
him rich. He even said he had no problem
doing illegal things to make his money.
He said he wanted to be a millionaire
because once you have money, every-
thing else falls in place -or so he thinks.
The only "thing" he included in "every-
thing" was power.
"What more could you need?" he asked.
I hope this is an extreme situation, but
the point is this poor guy didn't consider
the fact that a woman could easily marry
him in search of her MRS. degree and for
his money. Or that "friends" could also
use him for his money, and that everyone
could fear him for his power.
He got real excited at the thought of
people fearing him, but what fun is life
