A new symbol of black pride


New laws may boost won

"This is really a landmark decision,"
said state Rep. Ken Jacobsen, D-Seattle.
"I think they are going to be model acts
for the country."
The laws allow Washington state col-
leges to waive tuition and fees for a lim-
ited number of athletes who may have
otherwise had their tuition paid by ath-
letic department scholarships. When
implemented in 1990, the waivers will
provide up to an additional 181 scholar-

In 1969 James Brown had a number
one hit single with "Say it Loud - I'm
Black and I'm Proud."
Exultant, direct and powerful.
Pennsylvania State U. senior Stephen
Mitchell walked down South Allen
Street and - without speaking a word
- said the same thing. His message
swung at the end of a rope around his
neck - one large black medallion with
the continent of Africa carved into its
leather face.
"Wearing medallions or wearing Koffis
(an African hat) is a way of expressing
African pride and a way of living in the

lets people know I'm black and I'm
Mitchell bought his medallion about
one-and-a-half years ago in New York
City, about the time when medallions
and other Afrocentric clothing and jew-
elry began appearing more frequently in
cities and on college campuses.
That the medallions are now seen
more frequently than gold jewelry
demonstrates a new awareness,
Mitchell said. "We're finally listening to
the teachings of Malcolm X, Jesse
Jackson and Minister (Louis)
The designs gracing the leather and
wood medallions today range from
images of Africa to figures of black cul-

tural advocates such as Marcus Garvey
and Malcolm X. Color combinations
vary, but each hue represents something
to the medallion's owner.
Red signifies the blood shed during the
African people's struggle, black symbol-
izes unity and consciousness among the
people, green represents the nature of
the African motherland, and yellow is a
color present in many African countries'
Black Caucus President Walter
Mosley said the cultural awakening
symbolized by the medallions has led to
increased self-respect among blacks.
"The medallions serve as an indicator
to a lot of people that there's more to life
thanjust America. There's a motherland
where we all came from," Mosley said.

U. of Notre Dame
The members of the Doshisha U.
Hamburgers stood in awe. Their
wide-open and entranced eyes con-
firmed this was the crowning jewel
of a week to remember.
The Hamburgers, a Japanese col-
legiate football team, capped more
than a week of American football
training by watching defending
national football champion U. of
Notre Dame practice.
The Hamburgers spent the week
at Earlham College in Richmond,
Ind. They played an exhibition game
against Earlham, anNCAADivision
III school that went 1-8last year, and
the Hamburgers lost 27-0.
Hamburger Coach Aiko Ichise
was a visiting professor at Earlham
in 1982-83. He organized the week-
lorig trip and the visit to Notre
Dame. While the trip was a good
learning experience, the
Hamburgers - a nickname Ichise
chose because he wanted it to reflect
some part of American culture -
aren't quite ready to play a regular
season in America. The average
Doshisha player weighs 158
The Japanese - who are so com-
petitive and successful in the busi-
ness world - aren't concerned
about winning on the field. Against
Earlham, the Hamburgers called a
time out in the closing seconds of
the game as Earlham approached
the goal line. They didn't care if
Earlham scored; they just wanted
to play longer.
In the United States, professional
and collegiate sports are big busi-
nesses. In Japan, sports are for fun
and recreation. The Japanese don't
live or die with a basketball or foot-
ball game. A business deal to buy
France, maybe, but not a game.
But when talking about the seem-
ing ineptitude of the Hamburgers,
just remember the aftermath of
World War II. Then down-and-out
Japan has become a dominant eco-
nomic power in just 45 years.
So give the Japanese time to devel-
op the game. And if they can't pro-
duce a dominant team of their own,
they just might buy Notre Dame.

More men join female-dominated

Watch out Jane Fonda, here come the
More and more males are suiting up
in spandex and Reeboks and joining
female-dominated aerobics fitness class-
es. Anybody who has gone through a one-
hour workout will attest that aerobics is
sexless - it beats the hell out of both
males and females.
California Polytechnic State U. phys-
ical education senior Greg DiLeo has
been doing aerobics for six years.
However, he wasn't into the exercise at
first."Girls were the first thing that
attracted me," DiLeo said. "Then, after
a while, I realized it's a good way to stay
in shape."
DiLeo remembers his first aerobics
class. "I felt like an idiot," DiLeo said. "I
felt completely uncoordinated. I couldn't
do any of the moves and I just felt
embarassed to be in there. After a while
of just constantly going, I picked it all
"I'd like to see a lot more men get

aerobics classes
involved. Lifting weights builds more
muscle, but as an overall means of stay-
ing fit, it's just not the same as circuit
training (aerobics and moderate weight
lifting) or aerobics," DiLeo believes.
DiLeo said he finds it amusing that on
one side of the gym women will be the
minority as they pump weights in a
mostly male crowd, and on the other side
of the gym, the men will be the minority
doing aerobics.
Marcy Maloney, Cal Poly Rec Sports
fitness and leisure coordinator, said the
number of men doing aerobics has
Maloney, who has taught aerobics for
10 years and is an instructor at a local
fitness club, said classes now have three
to four males - up from last year. She
attributes this increase to changing atti-
tudes and less intense workouts offered
by some instructors.
Men don't participate because aero-
bics is dance-oriented and "men don't
feel comfortable in dance. They are more
into calisthenics," she said.
Maloney said the women enjoy it when
men get involved in aerobics classes.
"They love it. A co-ed class is fun."

The concept of special-interest hous-
ing was introduced at the university in
the late '70s.
"We wanted to experiment with a
dorm where students could speak a for-
eign language all the time," said Dick
Romm, residence life director.
"Dunn Hall was called Deutsches
House. An instructor from the German
department ate lunch with the students
once a week. The students also had some
German language presentations," he
The halls have also enjoyed strong
popularity among students. They are
open to all students, although two halls,
academic pursuit and cross-cultural,
require essays from potential residents.
Schafer, the creative arts hall, is one
of the more successful special-interest
dorms on campus, according to Romm.
"This dorm has the highest percentage
of returning residents. They've done a
great job painting murals in their lobby
and stairways."
Laura Ennis, a returning Schafer res-
ident and an art history major, said,
"Living in a creative arts dorm gives us
a chance to be creative in a family atmo-


Greg DiLeo is one of the many men who have
turned to aerobic exercise.
