Holy dead rodents, Batman...
A U. of North Dakota student was
fined $75 for throwing a dead badger
onto the rink during an ice hockey
game hetween UND and the U. rof
Wiscnsin Badgers. Seems it's tradition
at UND hockey games to throw a dead
version of some opposing teams'
mascots on the ice during games.
Duane Czapiewski, UND police chief,
said police search the arena prior to
each game since most of the rodents
are hidden there beforehand.
I can just see them searching people
at the door: "Excuse me son. Is that a
dead badger in your pocket..."
Oh, never mind.
The hottest tickets In town
Three Eastern Kentucky U. students
drove three and a half hours to Indian-
apolis to get in line for courtroom
passes to Mike Tyson's rape trial.
When they got in line at 4:30 a.m.,
there were only three guys in line ahead
of them. One man offered EKU
sophomore Robbie Phillips $150 for
his pass, but Phillips turned him down,
saying he "just wanted to see (Tyson)
real bad."
Phillips and his friends watched the
jury selection and finagled an
autograph from Tyson.
No nude oil Twister on blind dates...
Scott Gold and Sam Ruff, columnists
for Omnibus, the weekly entertainment
section of the U. of North Carolina
Daily Tar Heel, had never been on blind
dates and decided that needed to
change. The pair had readers send in
their names for a drawing in which the
two luckywinners got to go out on dates
with them.
Almost 250 women entered the
contest, but as it turnsout, the winners,
UNC seniors Ellen Kossow and
Shannon Nichols, didn't have to enter
because their roommate, Hillary Cox,
did it for them as ajoke.
Prankster Hillary signed her
roommates up for "The Dark Side"
date - described by the columnists as
including drinking and dancing - and
if the ladies wanted to, bungeejumping
and nude oil Twister. Ellen said they
drank and danced, but "We had our
limits," she said, when it came to the
nude oil Twister.

The Daily Bruin, U. of California, Los Angeles
A new tuition hike has sparked hunger
strikes, sit-ins, rallies and marches across the
U. of California system this spring. And the
rumbling of student opinion will only get
louder as the tuition increase forces them to
pay more for the second straightyear.
The 550 increase, which will raise annual
in-state tuition to $2,924 and out-of-state
tuition to $10,735, has helped increase the
cost of college by 67 percent since 1990.
About 1,500 UC-Davis students stormed a
campus auditorium shortly after the Board
of Regents voted almost unanimously to
approve the increase. Three days later,
abut 35 students remained in the huilding.
The rallies coame as a last-ditcht effort for
UC students at a time when higher educa-
tion systems across the country are feeling
the effects of an interminable recession.
The State U. of New York system (SUNY),
for one, is facing sharp increases authorized
by Gov. Mario Cuomo. If enacted, the cost of
attending some SUNY schools will have
doubled in the last twoyears.
At six of the nine UC schools, including
UC-Berkeley and UCLA, students held
hunger strikes on campus, hoping to
persuade university officials to roll back fees
for the 1992-93 year.
"Last year when they raised fees by 40
percent, nobody did anything about it. This
year it happened again," said Rosa Sanchez,

fast. "Going without food is going to be

Students must be heard."
But some university officials, including
UC President David Gardner, defend the
increase, saying itis necessary when the state
is saddled with growing prison, welfare and
secondary education costs. The state
currently faces a $6.6 billion deficit.
But after enduring the dramatic 1990
hike, students have little sympathy.
An estimated 400 students attended a rally
at the state capitol in Sacramento, calling on

state legislators to reject the increase.
"We wanted to make sure the legislature
and the governor knew that students will
remember this," said Andy Gaytan, a Davis
student who joied the Sacramento protest.
"Students are not going to forget this come
election time. We're here because we can't
afford to go to a private school."
Some state legislators are hearing the
message. "We need t o turn around the
priorities of the state of California," said
State Assemblyman Tom Hayden. "Higher
education is at a crossroads, and the destiny
of the students is at stake."
