and a piece of your culture," Davila said.
"(Language) is one of the main ways to
pass down cultural identity to future gen-
Segura said knowing Spanish helps
him communicate with older relatives and
connect to his heritage.
Sociology Prof. Robert Ortega said
some scholars perceive Spanish as "inte-
gral to preserving culture and psychologi-
"It is through their own language that
people express their true self" Ortega said
in an e-mail interview.
Statistics also show that location has an
effect on bilingualism.
LSA sophomore Cordaro Vasquez
grew up in Bridge Port, Mich. He said he
believes he grew up speaking English at
home largely because of limited ethnic
diversity in Bridge Port.
The language is what defines Hispan-
ics. "Hispanic" means those who come
from Spanish-speaking countries.
"There's definitely a trend to be more of
a U.S.-acculturated Latino, then a nation-
alistic 'I'm Puerto Rican' or 'I'm Mexican
Latino,"' Segura said. "It starts to divide
communities even further if they just try
to associate purely on nationalistic lines."
Ortega said that at the same time there
is discouragement to speak Spanish.
When students speak Spanish in the class-
room teachers often doubt their literacy in
English, he said.
"Third-generation Latinos have a
strong emphasis to demonstrate mastery
in the English language," Ortega said.
Although bilingualism is diminishing
as generations pass, Ortega believes it will
continue to thrive in the United States.
"When you lose a language, you lose a
world,' he said.
Ortega cited U.S. Census projec-
tions that, by the year 2050, there
will be more than 100 million His-
panics or about 24 percent of the total
Ortega said that currently one in eight
Americans are Latino and that Latinos
have the largest child population, about
15 percent, in the United States.
Davila said she believes bilingual-
ism is not emphasized enough among
some Latinos and mentioned that one
of her best friends, who is Latina,
does not speak Spanish.
"I think parents want their chil-
dren to feel as comfortable a possible
in the U.S. and feel as little discrimi-
nation as possible and the one way to
do that is to learn the language of the
country you live in," she said.

"(She had) one of the best refer-
ences given for a person who I've
hired. At this point I can't see that I
could've hired anybody better."
Chang said she was drawn to
her new position not only because
it involves litigation, but also edu-
cating students on their housing
"With my previous experience in
plaintiff litigation, I dealt with peo-
ple who didn't know their rights or
what direction to take, and in that
vein, needed an attorney to guide
them," she said.
The student fee went up $.50 to
pay the new attorney's salary. The
increase, approved by the Universi-
ty Board of Regents last July in con-
junction with an increase to boost
MSA funding, brought the student
fee to $6.50 per semester.

Cola factories were discussed, but the
violations did not play a role in the
university's final decision.
Taylor said RC Cola will replace
some Coke products in campus
At least 40 student governments
across the country have passed reso-
lutions urging their administrations
to can Coke.
DePaul University's Student Gov-
ernment Association passed a decla-
ration Jan. 14 boycotting Coca-Cola
because the company had foregone
But the decision is not binding on
the University administration.
Tweed Thornton, Depaul's stu-
dent government vice president, said
they boycotted Coke because the
company has not agreed to a third-
party investigation. Tweed Thorn-
ton, DePaul's student government
vice president, who voted in favor,
added that the declaration in no way
binds the university's administra-
"If Coca-Cola doesn't have
anything to hide, then why not
open up a third-party investiga-
tion?" he said.
Coca-Cola says the investigation's
delay is because of a legal snafu.

than 12 minutes remaining in the
game, he hit the biggest shot of the
After fighting back from a seven-
point halftime deficit, Michigan evened
the score at 45-45. With the Spartans
focusing their efforts on Horton, Har-
ris calmly found Hunter in the corner.
Hunter didn't even blink and subse-
quently swished the three. The shot gave
Michigan its first lead of the night and
brought the crowd into a frenzy.
Brown scored 10 and added seven
rebounds for Michigan. Harris account-
ed for nine points, despite shooting
1-for-12 from the field. His 7-for-8 per-
formance at the charity stripe was high-
lighted by the two free throws he made
with 1.3 seconds left to ice the game. Ron
Coleman - who replaced the injured
Lester Abram - also had nine points,
on 4-for-5 shooting from the field.
"He came in and did a great job,"
Hunter said of Coleman. "We have a
lot of guys on this team that can do
a lot of things, so when the oppor-
tunity arises, you just have to take
advantage of it."
Early on, it looked as if Michigan
State was going to chalk up another
win in the recently-lopsided rivalry.
The Spartans had won 12 of the last
13 meetings and didn't seem ready to
change their winning ways early on.
They answered a 5-0 Michigan start
by going on a 25-7 run of their own.
A remarkable shooting performance
highlighted Michigan State's first half.
The Spartans shot 16-for-27 from the
field. Michigan's 12-for-14 free-throw
shooting kept the 39-32 halftime defi-
cit to a reasonable margin after trail-
ing by as many as 13 points midway
through the half.
"We had a lead of seven at halftime, but
it should have been 12 or 13," Izzo said.
The Maize Rage stormed the court
immediately after the buzzer sounded.
It was the first time fans have rushed
the court since Michigan's last win
over its rival - three years ago today.
But unlike the 2002-03 squad that
celebrated along with the fans, it was
more of a business trip for this year's
"This year, we expect to win," Hor-
ton said. "Our freshman year, we just
wanted to go out and play hard, and
whatever happened happened. This is
a big win because it puts us at 4-2 and
gives us a chance to get some separa-
tion from the pack."

For Thursday, Jan. 26, 2006
(March21 to April 19)
A conversation with a friend (or per-
haps even a group) is unusually intense
today. You want to win others over to
your way of thinking. Stick to the issues.
Don't get hung up on victory.
(April 20 to May 20)
Conversations with a parent, boss or
authority figure will be memorable
today. You're putting a lot. of yourself
into what you have to say. (This makes
you extremely persuasive.)
(May 21 to June 20)
Avoid political and religious argu-
ments with others today. You passion-
ately identify with your beliefs right
now. This makes it hard to see the other
side (in fact, it's impossible!).
(June 21 to July 22)
Your research skills are fabulous
today! If there's anything you need to
search out or learn more about, you're
there! You're like a dog with a bone.
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Conversations with partners and close
friends are quite intense today. You will
definitely say what you mean and mean
what you say. However, others are just as
strong! (Be careful.)
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
You're determined to make improve-
ments at home or perhaps within your
family. Don't let your determination
make you lose sight of the bigger pic-
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Today you can market, sell, teach or
convince anyone of anything simply
because you believe in what you're say-
ing. As the old saying goes, a good prod-
uct sells itself.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
You might have some excellent mon-
eymaking ideas today. If so, you can per-
suade others to agree with you. If you
make a serious purchase, be sure you
know what you're doing.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Both the Sun and Mercury are lined up
in your sign today. This gives all your
thoughts a hard-edged determination.
You have something to say to others
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
You can discover secrets today
because you have the mind of a sleuth.
Research anything you need to find out
about. You have the determination to
look under every rock!
