we had an estimated 400," said LSA
senior Jeff Kosiorek, a Project SERVE
member. "I think it has to do with the fact
that more people care about Martin Luther
King's goals and spirit and want to do
something about it by making a commit-
ment to service,'he said.
Kosiorek said the activity also included
dialogues between volunteers and individ-
ual site leaders. "It was nice to hear what
people had to reflect on and how they met
so many different people through this
event.

"It was great to see so many people
impacted by this and for such a great
cause,' Kosiorek said.
In contrast to the veteran status of
Project SERVE,
other groups are " m ore
newcomers to
sponsoring this about Ma
event. Natashia
Hill, an LSA King's go
junior and member ,,
of United Students ...
for Christ, said her
club became inter-
ested in participat-
ing in the symposium during Festifall.
"We decided it would be good to see
such unity on campus and since there are
so few Christian events on campus, it

would be a good opportunity to present
that option for those wanting to partici-
pate," Hill said
The group sponsored a gospel mass and
a dinner at
People Care which non-
members as
tin Luther well as reg-
Is and spirit b mem-
$ h f5 ers united
to reflect on
the sermon.
- Jeff Kosioreki "We were
LSA senior so happy to
see non-
members attend because everyone got
along so well and we were able to cherish
fellowship," Hill said.
Campus groups were not the only ones
involved in the symposium: smaller orga-
nizations played a part as well. The
Council for Minority Advancement at
Mosher-Jordan residence hall sponsored
two films for Mosher-Jordan residents
during the symposium. One film depicted
King's life and another focused on
Gandhi.
"eople gained an understanding on
how things have changed so much since
his time," said Andrea Bediako, an LSA
sophomore who attended the film screen-
ings. "A lot of students reflected on
footage of the video that really affected
them, such as police brutality, and in the
process, learned and exchanged ideas'
Bediako said.
Despite the low attendance, Bediako
said the project was successful. "It's hard
to get a response to care for such things
because everyone is just really busy"she
said.
The multiplicity of symposium events
indicates that King's legacy will not be for-
gotten at the University -- and that stu-
dent activism will continue to play a part
in carrying on that legacy each year.

Music
/ If you thought it was bit out of the
ordinary for The Verve to allow its sin-
gle "Bittersweet Symphony" to sound-
track a Nike shoe advertisment, you're
not alone. The band members them-
selves revealed that they would have
never agreed to let their breakthrough
single be used commercially. But since
"Bittersweet Symphony" samples an
orchestral bit from a previous Rolling
Stones track, the band lost control of the
song's publishing copyright to Mick
Jagger, Keith Richards and former
Stones manager Alan Keith. "The
Verve's management licensed the use of
'Bittersweet Symphony' to Nike because
of the company's consistent history of
tasteful and creative advertising cam-
paigns,' and also to prevent the song
"from being utilized elsewhere without
the band's knowledge or input, said The
Verve in a written statement. Can you
say, licensing headaches? I can.
~ If you have plans to see Sleater-
Kinney live any time soon, you might be
in for a surprise. Addicted To Noise has
reported that the Northwest punk trio has
written five new songs, which it is anx-
ious to test out on live audiences before
recording the songs in the spring for the
trio's upcoming fourth album. Singer
and guitarist Corin Tucker revealed that
the group is interested in trying out a few
different arrangements before laying
down the final versions on record. Look
for the new album sometime in
September.
~ The more you ignore him, the clos-
er he gets. Morrissey is planning to
release a B-side/ rarities compilation for
U.S. release only, tentatively titled "My
Rare Burglary Years." The collection is
set to include a variety of previously
unreleased-in-the-U.S. tracks, as well as
previously unseen photographs of the
former Smiths frontman. An enhanced
CD version is also rumored to include a
video for the U.K. single "Sunny," which
was originally supposed to be unveiled
on a "Friends" soundtrack, but was later
dropped at the last minute.
/ Addicted To Noise staff writer
Chris Nelson reported that Carl

Perkins, one of rock 'n' roll's founding
fathers and the man who famously
warned the world to lay off of his blue
suede shoes, died Monday in Jackson,
Tenn. He was 65. Perkins died at
Jackson-Madison County Hospital
from complications related to several
strokes he had suffered since last
November.

V Be afraid. Be very afraid. The
Spice Girls, Great Britain's conglomera-
tion of anti-clothing seductresses, will
break into the world of film this week-
end. Sexy, Smutty, Scary, Sleepy and
Doc Spice, the quintet of "singers" who
own 1997's bestselling album, star in
"SpiceWorld," which opens tomorrow.
Finding someone who would admit to
owning a copy of the CD might be near-
ly as difficult as coming up with a story-
line for the film. Possible plot? A group
of producers put together a ragtag group
of talent-free models hoping to mold
them into a pop chart success with a hit
album and several number-one "songs"
Nah. Who'd believe that one?
/ Yes! As the major network basket-
ball season gets rolling, Marv Albert,
NBC's former NBA basketball commen-
tator, has officially left the basketball
court. After being released by NBC for a
questionable bedside manner, he can
probably look forward to a budding
career at a drive-thru window. "The NBA
on NBC" has attempted to fill his, uh,
shoes with the feet of Bob Costas and
former Detroit Pistons' point guard Isiah
Thomas. A little advice for Costas and
Thomas: In front of the mic and between
the sheets, watch your mouth.
V Man in Black Will Smith and
"Scream 2" bait Jada Pinkett finally
tied the knot on New Year's Eve in a
hush-hush affair. Smith brings along a
little one from his first marriage, and the
couple, already "Gettin' Jiggy Wit' It," is
expecting another in July. (Nab nah nah
nah nah nah nah.)
