Arbor Anecdotes Explained Before You Were Here,
Student elected president amid controversy H
Despite a controversy that began
last month after photos surfaced that
appeared to show him wearing black
face-paint, junior Josh Weinstein was
elected Princeton University's under-
graduate student government presi-
dent, The Daily Princetonian reported.
The photos, released by an anonymous
source, showed Weinstein in October
2005 wearing a Halloween costume
that consisted of black face-paint and
dark clothing. Weinstein said he was
supposed to be a "shadow" and that his
friends had planned to dress as the Blue
Man Group until they failed to find blue
paint. According to photo captions, how-
ever, he and other students dressed in
a similar fashion were meant to depict
Rick James, Rosa Parks, Nat Turner and
Weinstein said that the costume was
not intended to be racist and that the
captions were "attempts at humor."
COLOR ME OFFENDED
A former University of Iowa law pro-
fessor plans to file a Title IX complaint
against the school because the college's
football stadium reserves a pink locker
room for visiting football teams, the
Daily Iowan reported. The professor, Jill
Gaulding, has voiced concerns that the
university decided to keep the pink color
during renovations to Kinnick Stadium
Gaulding and her supporters said the
color is derogatory to women because it
is intended to make the visiting team feel
like "sissies." She started a petition to get
the locker room painted a differentcolor
and so far about 100 people have signed.
The college has not said whether it plans
to repaint the locker room.
The University of California at Berke-
ley is the go-to destination for geeks,
according to recruiters from the tele-
vision reality series "Beauty and the
Geek," The Daily Californian reported.
Producers of the program visited Berke-
ley's campus last Monday to find "geeks"
for the next installment of the program.
Dana Tomsic, the show's associate cast-
ing producer, told The Daily Californian
that computer science or physics majors
were perfect for the show because "those
are the people who usually work in labs
and have little time for their social lives."
Tomsic said recruiters would be happy
to find beauties at Berkeley but were
focused on finding geeks because of their
success at Berkeley in the past.
More than 400 students have been
banned from attending classes at the Uni-
versity of Southern Maine because they
have not been vaccinated for mumps, The
Associated Press reported. According to
a school spokesperson, about 20 of the
students refused the vaccination based
on ethical or religious grounds. Maine
is currently experiencing a mumps out-
break suspected to be linked to a concert
by a Canadian rock band in the Portland
area. A member of the band came down
with a mumps infection and the state's
first two confirmed cases attended the
