Dalai Lama drama

INDUSTRIAL ART

The University of Washington
required questions to be submitted
online for the Dalai Lama's visit to
the college this week to ensure that
questions were unrelated to the rela-
tionship between Tibet and China,
The Chronicle of Higher Education
reported.
Officials said they weren't trying
to censor students but wanted to be
sure questions didn't stray from the
Dalai Lama's agenda. He asked for
his talk to focus on "the nurturing of
compassion."
"Our event is not about current
politics," said college spokesman
Norman Arkans. "It is part of the
Seeds of Compassion initiative. It is
our understanding that he's coming
to talk about that initiative."
TOO MANY BEER ADS?
Angered by the number of beer ads
broadcast during this year's men's
basketball tournament, a group of
100 presidents of colleges and uni-
versities signed a letter directed to
the National College Athletic Asso-

ciation asking it to cut back its beer-
related advertising.
The letter was organized by the
Center for Science in the Public
Interest. It claimed the NCAA vio-
lated its beer commercial limit.
HUNGRY FOR TRANSPARENCY
Members of the University of Flor-
ida's chapter of Students for a Demo-
cratic Societyvowed togohungryuntil
thecollege'spresidentBernieMachen,
agrees to meet with them and discuss
investment plans for the school's $1.2
billion endowment, the Independent
Florida Alligator reported.
The 11 students have been asking
for full disclosure of the University's
investments. They're concerned that
the University isn't making socially
conscious investment decisions.
SteveOrlando, auniversityspokes-
man, said the college can't release its
investment portfolio because it con-
tains trade secrets and changes on a
daily basis.
"It's an agree to disagree situation,
I suppose," he said.

AUF WIEDERSEHEN TO GERMAN
The University of Southern Califor-
nia will no longer offer any majors or
minors in German after it closes the
department at the end of the term,
the Chronicle reported.
Howard Gillman, dean of USC's
College of Letters, Arts and Scienc-
es, said the decision was based on
declining enrollment and different
priorities at the University.
"I understand the central impor-
tance of German languages and cul-
tures for the humanities and for the
world," he said. "We are trying to
think about what the proper balance
or organizational structure is for all
of these."
The department has only two full-
time professors and eight students
with a declared major. The profes-
sors will continue to teach under a
different department, Gillman said.
"In my personal opinion,this is not
an eternal decision," he said. "There
may be a good chance at some point
that it will be reinstated."
