The once time-honored tradition of mascot stealing has gone the way of the dodo.
Harsh penalties are preventing students from pilfering lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!
12 Dollars / Nifty Thrifty Gifties
Care enough to send the very best, but can't afford to? No problem. U. Magazine has the
solution to all your holiday shopping needs in our guide to cheap gifts. And we mean cheap.
Wow! Thanks for the origami, dude.
13 Class / The King and IQ
There's a velvet picture of him in your living room at home. His face is on your record
albums, your commemorative plates and your stamps. And now, he's in your classroom.
He's the king of rock and roll. No, not Jon Secada, Elvis Presley.
13 Etc. / Greek Tragedies
Should fraternities and campus organizations be responsible for deaths and accidents
at their functions? It's hard for fraternities to tell. With unclear guidelines and
confusing court rulings, it's all Greek to them.
17 OffBeat / The Dead Will Never Die
Collegiate Deadheads realize it may be time to move on now that the illustrious career of the
Grateful Dead is in jeopardy. How are Jerry's kids coping with the emptiness in their lives?
Some may try so fill the void by going Phishing.
21 Pop / Dumb and Dumber
Married... With Children, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Beavis and Butt-head aren't high-brow
entertainment, but they are like potato chips. You know they're bad for you, but you
can't stop watching 'em. It's a complete loss of remote control.

Some schools get to see Pearl Jam and Blues Traveler. Other schools get pan flute
master Zamfir and some guy playing spoons. You can thank or blame your

Quentin Tarantino is back, ina delightful Christmas movie. It doesn't have all the caroling and
chestnuts one might expect from a holiday special, but it does have the vampires and the killing.
The seven deadly songs. U. Magazine offers up the top seven college rock albums
of all time, plus our U. radio chart.

7 JEST EXPERT! Torry the Traffic Guy
We searched far and wide this month for a guest expert we could call
"friend." Someone we could count on. Someone who would gladly stand in
front of a bus for us (or inadvertently usher us into its path). Torry Osby,
crosswalk operations manager at our U. Magazine Los Angeles headquar-
ters, holds up traffic to offer his insight on myriad collegiate topics of
interest. Let's take a ride with Torry the Traffic Guy, shall we?
