and periodic evaluations of deans.
Currently, there is a experimental
evaluation of deans in place.
Alfredo Montalvo:
Montalvo admits he is a novice to
the faculty governance game, but he
plans to study the issues before he
takes his seat in May.
"I feel it my responsibility now to
steep myself in what is going on. Iam
going to try to learn what are the
issues on the table and where I stand
on them," he said.
Although he may lack knowledge
of SACUA issues, Montalvo hope to
create a better relationship with the

administration by stressing open com-
munication and mutual respect.
"We won't always agree, but we
have to respect each others' opinion.
I don't have to agree with you to work
productively," he said.
Montalvo added the administra-
tion often ignores the views of the
faculty when making major decisions.
He said this discourages faculty from
choosing to teach at the University.
"We have to start thinking about
the principals that the University was
founded on. When people work out of
disrespect you send out a very bad
signal," he said.
Ronald Lomax:
Lomax is a SACUA veteran re-
turning for his second tour of duty on
the committee.

He wants SACUA to remain fo-
cused on its current issues such as the
changing nature of tenure appoint-
ments, faculty governance and griev-
ance procedure reform.
He also suggests a few changes in
the relationship with the administra-
tion in the future.
"One of the things we want to do
is get more direct communication with
the regents. Right now the channel of
communication is through the admin-
istration," he said. "If the administra-
tion wants to shade things a little bit,
they can.''
Lomax said both Senate Assem-
bly and SACUA have the potential to
be powerful advocates for the faculty.
"The SenateAssembly and SACUA
are not completely powerless. It does

represent the faculty in general, but it
takes a long time," he said.
Lomax said the key lies in com-
manding the administration's attention.
"There is a lot of feeling around here
that the administration and the faculty
are just on different wavelengths."

The decline does not reflect any
fundamental weakness in the
economy, nor any real inflation pres-
sure, a senior administration official
insisted, but "unfortunately, these
things can go on for a very long time."
With the Dow Jones industrial
average up 9.21 points after a 67-
point drop earlier, there was some-
thing to celebrate, although many trad-
ers said they wondered what next
week would bring. A surge of new
jobs is expected to be reported Friday
-bad news for stocks at a time when
investors think good economic news
means inflation - and mortgage in-
terest rates were reported yetserday at
their highest level more than a year.
"The stock market had a very rapid
run up last year," Clinton said. "It
might have been a little bit too high,
and maybe a lot of this is people just
kind of working that out."
Senior administration officials and
Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan last year discussed the
problems posed by an overheated
market, and some analysts believe
that a desire to slowly let some air out
of the market contributed to the Fed's
moves so far this year to raise interest
rates - a view that administration
officials who have talked with
Greenspan do not dispute.

campus are glad the questions are
being asked by reporters and the spe-
cial counsel, Robert B. Fiske.
"I don't think too much is being
made out of it," said Hope Dotson, an
LSA first-year student. "It is impor-
tant that this thing is not pushed under
the rug."
Chamberlin said, "Maybe people
should be interested. It may not be as
interesting as Tonya Harding, but it is
Although few were quick to con-
vict President Clinton, many felt
something questionable had occured
in Whitewater, the 1970s land devel-
opment corporation that bought land
in rural Arkansas.
"It is a little bit shady," said LSA
first-year student Samantha Malti n.
"I'm a littleuncomfortable with a
president engaging in something like
Chamberlin said it is natural for
people to expect more out of the presi-
dent. "We have higher standards for
our elected officials."
Ambrose questioned whether such
high standards could be met by any-

"I don't think anyone could un-
dergo the scrutiny the Clintons' taxe
were subjected to and come out look-
ing completely innocent," he said.
But much of the campus commu-
nity considers Whitewater a waste of
"I usually skim the articles on
Whitewater," said political science
sophomore Julie Perkins. "It's not
really all that relevant."
LSA first-year student Beck*
Karbowski-said, "It happened a long
time ago; I'm more concerned about
what they're doing today."
Many people said that the reason
they were not interested in Whitewater
was because they are not as informed
on the issue as they should be.
LSA first-year student Amy Henry
put partial blame on the media for the
confusion surrounding Whitewater.
"The media is not cluing in th
average person into what's going on,"
she said.
Ambrose said the reason so many
people are confused about the contro-
versy is that they don't make the ef-
fort to understand the issues.
"Most people don't take the time
to read the newspaper which is where
you find the details," he said. "In-
stead, all they get is sound bites an*
TV blips from the nightly news."

culating in University students' bod-
ies. Other illicit drugs were used by 7
percent of undergraduate males and 3
percent of females, according to the
University survey.
Most of the students interviewed
said they had seen a lot of psychedelic
mushrooms, LSD and nitrous oxide.
And some had found such varied drugs
as opium, speed (crystal
methamphgetamine), hashish, peyote
and the new designer drug, Ecstasy.
Kevin, who smokes pot twice a
week and uses mushrooms and Ec-
stasy, "on occasion," has also experi-
mented with "nitrous" in the form of
both nitrous tanks and Whip-its, ob-
tained by puncturing a whipped cream
cartiridge and emtpying the gas into a
balloon for easy inhaling.
"Nitrous is a very, very quick feel-
ing of ... your hearing becomes al-
tered so that things begin to echo.
You get light-headed.
"It's very easy to pass out for like
two seconds and be like totally out of
it. It's like suffocating yourself al-
most. It's like an instantaneous ex-
plosion of, like, 'wow."'
Apparently, some students think
the 10 to 30 second rush is worth the
risk, even when they see friends pass
out halfway through inhaling a bal-
loon, wake up a few seconds later and
continue sucking.
Mushrooms are a little easier to
come by on the University, according
to some students. "Billy," a senior
who wished not to have his school
identified, said he could find it within
a week through the "network" of us-
ers and dealers he has built up.
However, having tried pot, acid,
shrooms, speed, nitrous, opium and
hash, Billy ranked shrooms as one of
his least favorites.
More favored is the other halluci-
nogenic standby, acid. Kevin recalled
one experience. "One of the greatest

back from a (Grateful) Dead show....
The entire wall was bright red and it
turned into liquid.

begin to echo'


- 'Kevin'
"The wallpaper had little teeny
gold dots, and all those gold dots
turned into pores like little goose
pimples opening up and letting out
gas. ... I bugged out to it for like 15
Not all acid experiences are so
positive. "Fred," an SNRE first-year'
student, remembered when he hurt a
friend physically while under the in-
fluence. The friend had been throw-
ing pebbles at him, and "It scared the
fuck out of me so bad. I thought he
was throwing big rocks at me and
they were hurting me. ... I was so
scared.... I kind of bruised up his face
a little bit."
A fairly new hallucinogen on the.
market hasn not had the time to pro-
duce such "bad trip" stories, at least
not among University students. At
about $25 a hit, it's pretty hard to
come by.
Kevin, who has experimented with
it twice, said when he did it, "My
body was more tuned into everything
- like temperature, water, mist. If
somebody's touching your arm, it just
feels so nice. You open up, man."
Speed, peyote, hash and opium
are almost just as rare. Student drug
users tend to like the standbys of pot,
acid and shrooms, anyway.
As for Hash Bash, we can expect
to see plenty of stoned people out
there, and some tripping. Bob plans to
"hang out and smoke" tomorrow, but
not on the Diag. "I've smoked on the
Diag before, but not during Has*O
Bash," he said.
Kevin wants to do Ecstasy again,
if he can get a hold of it. If not, he'll
settle for drinking and getting stoned.
J.D., however, who's trying toquit,
plans "to get as far away from this
campus as I can so I don't fail my drug
