Under the TRA, most scholar-'

exempt from taxes will now be 
taxed. The TRA limits the amount 
of taxable income that can be 
exempted. That includes Exclusion 
of “amounts used by degree can-

related expenses.” It states: 
“qualified expenses' are limited to

The “tax simplification” bill, 
signed into law' on Oct. 22 by 
President Reagan, eliminates or 
reduces tax exempt" status for 
many forms of student financial 
aid. 

The Tax Reform Act of 1986 
(TRA) removes the tax exempt 
status on the following: 

• Financial aid used to cover 
“nonqualified expenses” (which 
includes room and board stipends 
received by Resident Assistants). 

• Payments received by research 
and teaching assitants. 

• Interest payments on student 
loans.

Political Awareness Week: 

Heated debates kick off third annual CD event 


the audience, mostly CD members, to vote for 
liberal U.S. Senate candidates and demonstrate 
for abortion rights. 

Roy Jones, senior vice-president for political 
affairs pf the Liberty Alliance, an offshoot of 
Falwell’s Moral Majority, said he had come to 
represent Falwell’s viewpoint. “I grew up in a 
Dmocratic family, but abortion drove me away. 
The political left has been using the federal court 
system for years to change America. Now we 
conservatives are finally getting our slice of the 
pie.” Jones said the Rehnquist Court will preside 
over a period of “national renewal” and pre- 
dicted a solid conservative majority in the 
Supreme Court from now until the end of the 
century. Niemann and many people in the 
audience were not pleased when Jones referred to 
the pro-choice position as “pro-death” and 
“anti-life.” 

Robert Friedlander, a law professor and 
assistant to Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), 
warned that all predictions about the future 
actions of the Supreme Court were difficult given 
the existence of the “surprise factor.” He noted 
that' a conservative president, Dwight 
Eisenhower, had appointed liberals, such as 
former Chief Justice Earl Warren and current 
Associate Justice William Brennan and later 
called them “the biggest mistakes 1 ever.made.” 
Friedlander said, “A president doesn’t always get 
what he wants ... so don’t be scared, liberals.”

The first two events qf third annual Political 
Awareness Week, sponsored by the GW College 
Democrats, were in the true sense of the word, 
debates. 

Tuesday niRht featured a heated debate be- 
tween a National Abortioii Rights League activist 
and an official of Jerry Falwell’s Liberty Alli- 
ance, while Monday night’s event pitted con- 
servative legislative aides, fighting in favor of 
funding to the contras, against a Nicaraguan 
diplomat for the opposition. 

Tuesday night’s program, “The New Supreme 
Court: The Effect of the New Judiciary.” 
featured five panelists discussing what new 
developments, if any, will occur regarding 
Supreme Court dedfions now that Justice 
William H. Rehnquist is Chief Justice and 
'Antonin Scalia has been appointed to the bench. 
The issue posed most was' whether the Court 
would overturn its 1973 “Roe vs. Wade” 
decision, which legalized abortion. 

“ ’Roe’ is more vulnerable now than at any 
time since 1973,” Marcia Niemann, a member of 
the National Abortion Riidits League said. “The 
four pro-choice justices are all over 76 years old. 
One more appointment will change things. If the 
right.to regulate abortion is returned to the states, 
wealthy and upper-middle class women will be 
able to fly to other sutes for safe abortions while 
more poor women will be dying because they 
resorted to illegal, unsafe abortions.” She urged

and 400 percent, said a report by a 
House Government Operations 
Subcommittee. 

The spiraling use of the medical 
consultants “was a major factor 
in the three-year disability 
nightmare in 1984, the report 
said. 

Of the 500,000 people who lost 
benefits during those years, 
291,000 won them back on ap- 
peal. 

The report said the physicians 
who performed the exams created 
'■a new industry of 
multimillion-dollar examination 
mills, were beneficiaries and new 
claimants were rushed through in 
assembly-line fashion." 

Thousands of physicians were 
hired as consultants, but a small 
number— 108— accounted for 22 
percent of all the exams in 1983 
and earned an average of 
$348,672, according to figures 
gathered by (he general account- 
ing office, an investigative arm of 
Congress. 

Six doctors earned more than 
$1 million, including a former 
fulltime medjcal consultant for 
Social Security who “received 
approximately $3 million for one 
year,” the report said. 

The disability reviews,’ ’ which 
Congress itself ordered in 1980,, 
were resumed earlier this year 
under mpre lenient rules.

whaling again.” 

The International Whaling 
Commission declared a 
moratorium on whaling in 1982. 
Japan, the Soviet Union and 
Norway objected and continued 
to hunt the huge mammals. 

This year, Japan agreed to 
withdraw its objections to the 
commission's order after con- 
cluding an agreement with the 
United States. Under it, the Japa- 
nese will stop commercial whaling 
by next year and the United States 
will not reduce the fish catch the 
Japanese arc allowed In American 
coastal waters. 

Norway has said it will stop 
catching Minke whales after the 
1987 season, except for a small 
number as part of a scientific 
program. 

The moratorium is to be re- 
viewed in 1990, 

According to the International 
Whaling Commission, whales are 
in danger of extinction unless 
commercial killing stops. Japan 
disagrees and cites international 
scientific surveys. 

“A conservative estimate is that

The GW HATCHET-Thunday, October 30, 19H6-3 



Violence and racism is 
entwined in Zionism 

The goals of Zionism were realized with the establish- 
ment of Israel in Palestine after expelling its Arab 
population. But that was only the beginning of the road for 
the expansionist ambitions of Zionism. In short, the 
establishment of this expansionist racist state has been 
accompanied, since, its establishment in 1948, by the 
desecration of sanctities and disdain for the religious 
feelings of the Arabs, both Christian and Moslem. 

Several evident characteristics of the Israeli people are 
their bitterness and Use of violence, trails that are ingrained 

D.D. Norris 


in their characters. Ever since its inception, Zionism has 
been linked to violence, choosing it asn way of securing its 
goals. Undoubtedly, the concept of violence is entrenched 
in the Zionist movement. This appears in the writings of 
the early Zionist leaders. It is sufficient to refer to the 
writings of Jabotinsky, one of the early Zionist leaders, 
who calls on the Jev^ youth to remember the heroic 
battles of ancient Jews as a way of arousing pride in 
military action, violence and killing. Jabotinsky considered 
that those who die fighting the Arabs in Palestine must 
remain an unfading example for the Israeli youth.

To survive, Israel 
must kick Arabs out 

The survival of ihe State of Israel is threatened regular^y'. 
Israel has had to defend herself from external threats since 
the inception of the state. Over the years, the circumstances 
Nvere different, but the intent was the same— the liquidation 
of Israel. ^ ' 

Israel is surrounded on all sides by hostile enemies, who 
have never been successful in their attempt to destroy her. 
Now, Israel's survival is threatened from within. That 
threat must be taken seriously. In the past. Israel has been

The Arabs living in Israel have become remarkably more 
aggressive and hostile in recent years. From February 1969 
to September 1985, 650 Isradis have been killed and 
thousands more wounded in terrorist attacks. Most of 
these victims were civilians; it is only recently that soldiers 
have become targets. 

The most recent terrorist attack in Jerusalem is the latest 
in a string of 8,000 acts of terror perpetrated since 1969. In 
a 12-month period, starting in September 1984, an average

Will negotiations secure Middle East peace in 1987? 


) 

After the first summit in five ■ 
years between the leaders Of Israel 
and Egypt, the final communique 
declared 1987 the “year of negoti- 
ations for peace.” This is an 
appropriate attitude for most na- 
tions throughout the world, but in, 
the Middle East, one of the most 
hostile regions on the globe, nego- 
tiations are often rejected in favor 
of violence. The radical, hardline 
states cohdemn countries that ne- 
gotiate peace or even contemplate 
dialogue with Israel. These nego- 
tiations are not only for their own 
citizens* well-being, but, in this 
age of nuclear weapons, for the 
' sake of mankind. 

The groundwork for the sum- 
mit was aided in July when former 
Israeli Prime Minister Shimon 
Peres accepted an invitation from 
Moroccan King Hassan to discuss 
the current Middle Eastern situa- 
tion, i.e. the lack of progress 
towards a peace settlement. The 
many parties concerned viewed 
this Israeli-Morrocan summit as a 
profitable event, for it may lead to" 
the far-reaching road of peace. 
Althqug-h there was no 
breakthrough in resolving the 
differences between the involved 
parties, that a leader of an Arab 
nation hosted a summit with an 
Israeli Prime Minister was a suc- 
cess in itself, because that dia- 
logue, absent in decades past, was 
welcomed by both parties. It is 
evident these nations, after 40 


years of a constant state of war, 
desire some model of compromise 
to curtail hostilities and promote 
peaceful coexistence. Before the 
leaders even met, before the 
agenda was disclosed to Ihe 
public, Syria cut off all diplomatic 
ties with Morocco. This unfortu- 
nate and uncompromising 
behavior by one of the world's 
leading terrorist-sponsoring na- 
tions causes grief, bloodshed and 
anguish to many peoples and 
nations. ' The reason for the 
severing of diplomatic ties was 
because Morocco is now a traitor 
to the Arab cause for talking to an 
Israeli leader in the pursit of a 
peace which will hopefully lead to 
the termination of Israeli and 
Arab beligerency. Similar 
warmongering mentality also rests 
in the regime of Col. Quadaffi in 
Libya. After the Egyptian-Israeli 
summit Quadafi ctilled for an 
“overthrow of the treacherous 
Egyptian regime.” To most ob-, 
servers, the pursuit of peace is not 
a treacherous act, but to call for 
the overthrow of a nation at peace 
with a former adversary of 40 
years is certainly 
counterproductive to any aspect 
of an eventual peace settlement. 
After all, isn’t this what the 
regime of Quadaffi has repre- 
sented since its inception in 1969? 

The Egyptian-Israeli summit 
was in limbo because of a border 
disputf ,qf. a l()0-yfq4 .*K.*f9h pf 


Red Sea beachfront called 'Taba. 
The summit began hours after 
Israeli and Egyptian negotiators, 
with special U.S. Ambassador 
Richard W. Murphy, worked out 
an agreement on the terms of 
arbitration. Washington strongly 
sought this summit to improve 
upon its regional influence and 
have its, two major allies in the 
region restore trade, tourism and 
cultural accords. Both parties also 
wanted the summit to insure the 
flow ,of U.S. aid that greatly 
stimulates their economies. Egypt 
is also seeking to reduce interest

on its repayments of U.S. loans 
and to convert $500 million in 
project funds to a cash grant. 

After meeting for three hours 
with Mr. Peres, Mr. Mubarak 
told reporters he is returning an 
Egyptian ambassador to Israel, 
thus reinstituting a crucial aspect 
of the Camp David Accords that 
the Egyptian government had vio- 
lated. As a result of the 1982 
Lebanese Christian Phlange 
militia’s massacre of innocent 
men, women and children in the 
Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps, 
Egypt recalled its ambassador. 
The appointment of a new am- 
bassador, the former charge 
i’affain in . M^Juunm^ 


Baissouny, is a crowning 
achievement of the summit. 

Mr. Peres and Mr. Mubarak^ 
agreed in principle to set up a 
committee to organize an interna- 
tional conference on Middle East- 
ern peace. Originally this would 
have been rejected by Mr. Peres, 
but he is finding that no other 
Arab leader is willing tp . have 
direct negotiations with Israel. 
The interrutional conference is 
still rejected by many in the Israeli 
government and could be a stick- 
ing point in future discussions 
now that Israeli leadership has 
shifted to the Likud party as part 
of Ihe National Unity government 
agreement. However, Mr. Peres 
stressed that it could be a “transi- 
tional device” to make it easier 
for King Hussein 'of Jordan to 
have discussions with Israel and 
not a way to avoid direct negotia- 
tions. He also insisted that for the 
soviet Union to' have any role in 
an eventual settlement, they must 
restore diplomatic relations with 
Israel and allow freer emmigra- 
tion of the countless numbers of 
oppressed Soviet Jews. 

In an effort to have more 
substantive material at the sum- 
mit, the Egyptian government had 
been trying to ease strains between 
King Hussein and Yassir Arafat, 
leader of the terrorist Palestinian 
Liberation Organization, to put 
together a new attempt at a 
Mid-Eaat peace iaitiMlve. This 


was to ho avail as was the 
previous attempt when the King 
broke witl)! Arafat, charging the 
P.L.O. leader was “exasperat- 
ingly evasive.” The King has 
refused to enter peace talks 
without Arafat’s endorsment, this 
in itself could infinitely delay any 
discussions. 

For substantial progress, Mr. 
Peres would have needed King 
Hussein’s attendance and open 
recognition from him. With this, 
Mr. Peres would be in a position 
to persuade the fsraeli public to 
make political and strategic con- 
cessions dn the West Bank, 
something Mr. Mubarak seeks. 
Sipce the recent warming of rela- 
tions between Jordan and Syria, it 
is no wonder the King is balking at 
negotiating with Israel while other 
Arab leaders negotiate to further 
the peace process. , 

One has to be concerned with 
the King’s latest maneuvers. He 
has sought closer relations with 
Syria, the nation behind the hei- 
nous car bombing of 241 Ameri- 
can Marines in Lebanon, while at 
the same time distancing himself 
from the American-backed peace 
seeking Egyptian regime. If closer 
^relations with Egypt were to oc- 
cur, and be accompanied with 
virtually any involvement in the 
peace process, the package of 
arms the King was seeking while 
visiting President Reagan earUer

President Reagan signed into law this week a comprehensive 
anti-drug package— legislation whose goal of ridding society of illicit 
narcotics is one that we wholeheartedly support. However, in the same 
week this anti-drug bill became law, a phenomenon that threatens to 
dissolve the sanctity of the American family resurfaced. In a scene 
that's unfortunately becoming familar, a child has notified the police 
that her parents were using drugs. In this most recent case, a lO-year-old 
Los Angeles girl turned her mother over to^ the police for free-basing 
cocaine. 

We can't fault this child's motivation or her desire to see her mother 
rid herself of an extremely dangerous drug habit. But we do fault the 
.politicians and the mass media for fostering such a drug hysteria as to 
cause children to turn their parents over to the authorities. This is a 
scene we expect to be played out in one of the world's communist or 
fascist countries where everyone spies on everyone else— neighbor oh 
neighbor and child on parent — all for the good of the state. There is no 
way one can't be wary of the future when this sort of total allegiance to 
Big Brother invades the American family. ’ 

Yes, society must give children an opportunity to speal^ to school 
counselors and psychologists about their parents use of drugs. Sure, 
society must continue to expand its committment to providing family 
drug counseling centers. But society has no right to infect a Child's 
psyche with the notion that it is best to turn their parents over to the Achieving peace in the Middle East must begin Whose national security is being threatened? No

with those carried out by the Reagan-backed contras with what Hitler did to the Jews before and during

headed by former Israeli Prime Minister Mehachem

The massacres they carried out drove fear into the 
hearts of many.Palestinians and forced them to leave 
their homes. No doubt, these acts make the 
difference between a freedom fighter and a terrorist 
very obvious. There is no more blatant terrorism 
than Israeli foreign policy. They have carried out

West Bank, the Golan Heights and the Gaza strip, 
invaded and destroyed the beautiful country of 
(Lebanon, and massacred innocent Palestinians at 
Sabra and ShatUla, etc., etc., etc. Countries Uke-Iraq 
and Tunisia, hundreds of miles away, were attacked 
by Israeli jets and all this was done in the name of 
Israeli national security! I wonder whose national 
security is threatened. All that anyone needs to do is 
to look at successive maps of the regioh since 1948, 

We're not experts on the new law's intricacies, but we do know it is 'f/e can see how the Israeli borders have continually 

threatening to students, and we think the GW administration should try expanded on the expense of the neighboring states, 

to find a loophole to protect the students' interests .

price of easing the conscience of Europe and the

the "promised land" of the Jews, but has anyone 
bothered to think about the Palestinian people who 
have lived on that land for thousands of years before 
Hitler came and decided' to make an "elite race." 
Entire families have been uprooted and scattered in 
different countries arourid the world. Just as the 
world has decided that the Jews are entitled -to a 
homeland, so too are the Palestinian people also 
entitled to a homeland where their forefathers have 
lived. I .. 

When Israel is ready to recognize the P.L.O. as the 
legitimate representative of the Palestinian people 
and that the Palestinians are entitled to have a 
homeland, and when it stops its hostile and 
expansionist policies towards her neighbors, then 
and only then will it be possible for a true peace.

Iran refuses to end the Gulf war 


Six years have passed since the 
war flared up between Iran and 
Iraq following a number of re- 
peated Irani provocations across 
the Iraqi border. On Sept. 4. 
1980, the Irani rulers intensified 
their aggressive acts on the Iraqi 
borders, and the Iraqis had no 
alternative except to defend their 
homeland. 

The new regime in Iran utilized 
all of its military capacites, which 
were built during the Shah era, to 
intimidate the Iraqis and interfere 
in their internal affairs. On Sept. 
4, 1980, several Iraqi border 
villages ts;ere shelled by Irani 
artillery, and navigation in the 
Shattal Arab waterway was inter- 
rupted by .the Irani Navy. Kho- 
meini's surrogates carried out 
subversive actions in Iraq. Car 
bombs were exploded in residen- 
tial areas, busy shopping centers 
and universities in Baghdad, all in 
the hopes of causing disorder and 
turmoil in Iraq. These aggressive 
acts were launched by the Kho- 
meini regime, which did not hesi- 
tate in disclosing its expansionist 
ambitions in Iraq and the region 
under the infamous slogan 
“Exporting the Revolution.” 

Khomeini exploited the igno- 
rance, poverty and powerlessness 
of the Irani masses to use them in 
furthering his evil ambitions. The 
Khomeini regime 1$ suppressing 
the Irani peoples ruthlessly. Any 
person who dared to voice a 
criticism or opposition was sent to 
prison or executed after a sum- 
mary trial. The majority of the 


Irani people have suffered during 
the reign of Khomeini. Basic food 
items are scarce, and prices have 
skyrocketed. Hundreds of 
thousands of poor peasants, fac- 
tory workers, college students and 
even high school boys have been 
forced to the battlefield to satisfy 
Khomeini’s expansionist dreams. 
In spite of the high costs inflicted 
upon Irai), the Irani rulers are still 
intransigent and refusing any call 
for a cease fire and- peaceful 
settlement. ., 

The Iraqis were forced.to enter 


Munther Al-Raban 


this war to p/otect their homeland 
against the Khomeini aggression. 
Iraq has never had any territorial 
ambitions in Iran. The Iraqi lead- 
er, Saddam Hussein, has been 
calling for peace from the very 
beginning of the war; the Irani 
rulers are insistent on continuing 
the bloodshed. 

Those who know the nature of 
the regime in Iran realize Kho- 
meini and his few followers want 
the war to continue so they can 
stay in power and to divert the 
people’s attention from the miser- 
able situation brought upon them 
by the Khomeini regime. 

Iraq, on the other hand, wants 
peace so it can continue the 
development process to raise the 
standard of living of its people 


and contribute to the prosperity 
and stability of the region. Iraq’s 
call for peace is inspired by the 
ideology of the Iraqi regime, 
which is founded on a democratic 
and humanitarian basis. Although 
Iraq has and still is capable of 
inflicting devastating blows to the 
Irani military machine and its 
economic sectors, Iraqi leaders 
have repeatedly called for a peace- 
ful settlement. 

The message sent by the Iraqi 
President Saddam Hussein in 
August of this year to the Irani 
rulers calls for: 

• A complete and unconditonal 
withdrawal of both parties to their 
internationally recognized 
borders. 

• A complete exchange of all 
prisonefs of war. 

• A conclusion of a peace and 
nona^ession treaty between Iraq 
and Iran. 

• Noninterference in the internal 
affairs of each country and a 
mutual respect of each country’s 
choices. . 

• That. Iraq and Iran should play 
an active role in promoting peace 
and maintaining stability in the 
region and in the Arab Gulf in 
particular. 

This unconditional call for 
peace by the Iraqis indicates how 
sincere the Iraqi leaders are in 
their attempts to bring an end to 
this pointless war and to promote 
peace and prosperity for the re- 
gion and for the world, whose 
interests are threatened by the 
continuation of the war. 


GW’s Arab- Jewish conflict 


Many of you probably saw 
the table the Zionist Alliance 
placed ill the middle of the 
library quad last Wednesday. 
For those who didn’t see the 
display, let me say that it was 
spedflcally designed to be 
unobtrusive. It was adorned 
with balloons, posters, and 
information about study op- 
portunities in Israel. Yet, it still 
provoked hostile reaction from 
some passers-by. Comments, 
such as “Just some radical 
Zionist propaganda!” and 
“Don’t go to Israel, I’ve been 
there, you don’t want to go,” 
were heard by the people sit- 
ting at the table. That a table 
of this sort provoked such 
hostility demonstrates the 
Middle East conflict is not 
entirely confined to the 
Mid-East, but is also a sad part 
of our everyday lives. Why are 
GW students involved in such 
a distant conflict? i 

The main reason is the most 
obvious. A large percentage of 
the GW population is Jewish, 
and it is a well-known fact that 
the American Jewish commu- 
nity is both economically and 
politically supportive of Israel. 
In addition, a large percentage 
of GW students come from 
Arab countries, or IsraeU-held 
territory and are adamantly 
opposed to the existence of the 
Jewish state. Unfortunately, 
when two antagonistic forcOs 
are thrown together, they are 
bound to create tension. 

The tension on this campus 


is not readily apparent, but 
shows itself in the unwritten 
laws of segregation that rule 
this University. Arab and Jew- 
ish students rarely mix in any 
context and have implicitly 
designated specific areas on the 
campus as “theirs.” The term 
“Third World cafe" is not 
uncommon, and every student 


Brian Friedman 


knows which floors in the 
library are theirs to study on. 
This segregation simply rein- 
forces racist predilections Jews 
and Arabs have for one 
another and does nothing to 
push for greater cultural un- 
derstanding between the two 
segments. What can be done to 
solve this problem? 

Although the conflict that 
exists between Arabs and Jews 
probably can’t be solved in the 
short-term, students at GW 
can set an example in making 
an attempt for Jewish and 
Arab coexistence. Jews and 
Arabs should seek ways to get 
to know each other in a social 
context, to gain an understan- 
ding of each other as individu- 
al students rather than dis- 
tinctive groups. Our duty as 
students at this University is to 
learn about ourselves and 
others to rid ourselves of un- 
fortunate prejudices. __

Implications of the Shamir-Peres job swap 


After 25 months as Israel’s 
Prime Minister, Shimon Peres has 
stepped down to assume the role 
of Foreign Minister, Israel’s 
Labor Party leader switched roles 
with Likud’s Yitzak Shamir, who 
on October 10, became Prime 
Minister. This was an arrange- 
ment of the coalition government 
formed in 1984 as a result of a 
Parliamentary stalemate. Under 
the agreement, Shamir will remain 
Prime Minister for 25 months. 
Peres’ single greatest ac- 
complishment in his term as 
Prime Minister was in keeping the 
coalition together, a feat the 
beligerent Shamir will probably 
not accomplish. ■ '' 

Israel has a serious problein 
with its political parties, as evi- 
denced by the election of 1984, 
That was the first election where a 
major figure of the 1948 War of 
Independence was not leading a 
party. Gone were the giants, such 
as Golda Meir and Menachem 
Begin. The electorate had to settle 
for the foot soldiers of the Zionist 
movement. Men like Peres, 
Shamir, Rabin and Navon are 
excellent at advising and working 
out the detailed plans for Israel, 
but they lack the true leadership 
qualities necessary to gain popular 
support for the/r programs. The 
lack of a popular leader caused 


the electorate to vote ■ for the 
parties on programs and not on 
leadership. This shed light on 
another disturbing fact. Israelis 
are evenly split 40 to 40 between 
Labor and Likud, and therefore, 
neither party can gain a workiitg 
majority. It was this stalemate 
that caused the coalition gov- 
ernment. 

Critics were convinced the 
government would not last, a 
month, but they underestimated 

David Parker 


Peres. He had two major crises 
that Israel had to overcome: The 
first was the economy. By enact- 
ing austerity measures, he arrested 
the 300 percent inflation and 
brought it down to reasonable 
levels. Although there was some 
grumbling among the people, they 
realized the necessity of the ac- 
tions, and Peres, being Prime 
Minister, was credited with its 
success. The second issue he faced 
was the subject of Middle East 
peace. Peres’ status as the Labor 
leader gave him an advantage 
abroad. Through his years of 
attending the International Social- 
ist ponferences in Europe, he had 
made connections with most of 
Europe’s social democratic 


parties. As a result of these 
contacts he brought about actions 
such as Israel being recognized by 
Gonzales’ Socialist government in 
Spain. By suspending settlement 
of the West Bank, an important 
program to his party, and 
submitting the disputed land of 
Taba to arbitration, he gained 
respect in the Arab world. This 
allowed him to meet with the King 
of Morocco and restore relations 
with Egypt. Now Peres has 
become Foreign Minister, a posi- 
tion where he can still use his 
influence but can no longer set 
policy. 

Policy will be led by Yitzak 
Shamir and his right-wing Likud 
party. Shamir already has a 
tainted record from his days as an 
Israeli revolutionary. During the 
1940s, Shamir was a member of 
the notorious Stern Gang whose 
group was so extreme that even 
Monachem Begin's Irgun, 
another extremist independence 
group, found them too radical to 
stomach. Shamir was responsible 
for the assassination of Sweden’s 
U.N. envoy in 1948, something 
that Sweden has not forgotten, as 
evidenced by their recent state- 
ment of their objections to work- 
ing with Shamir. Besides a bad 
reputation abroad, his power base 
is questioned among the' 'Likud 


Party itself. Shamir and, to a 
lesser extent, Peres face a com- 
mon problem amongst their, 
parties. They are the last of those 
who fought for independence in , 
the 1940s, and the Youiig Turks . 
wknt to assume control of the 
Israeli political scene. Those in the 
Likud are generally Sephardic 
Jews who are exiles from Arab 
nations. They are against negotia- 
tion and willing to endure the 
tit-for-Mt fighting of the past 20 
years. Shamir will be forced to 
appease them through West Bank 
settlement at the expense of peace 
with Eygpt and the Labor Party’s 
support. 

Shamir will have to straddle a 
fence between Peres and Labor’s 
center left and his own right wing, 
led by Ariel Sharon and David 
Levy. He will be Inclined to give in 
to his own party on critical issues. 
Peres has stated that a distinct 
difference on a “real policy issue” 
would upset the government. 
Israeli politics and especially the 
Likud Party are not known for 
easy compromises, and it’s more 
than likely Shamir will push that 
policy issue, which will send Israel 
back into political chaos.

this year would almost certainly 
follow. 

The purpose of this summit was 
to convince the Israeli public to 
.pursue peace with the Arabs after 
warming the only peace with an 
Arab nation. The present peace, 
ai^d a quite frigid one at that, in 
the words of Hebrew University 
political scientist Shlomo Aveneri 
is "like the U.S. and the USSR,” 
not like the “U.S. and Canada.” 
Unfortunately, the current rela- 
tionship is more of a no-war 
situation than one of true peace. 

For 1987 to be the year of peace 
through negotiations, there must 
be more involved parties, lest fear 
of the intimidating, beligerent 
nations and, hopefully, more 
summits. The Likud party of 
Israel’s National Unity govern- 
ment mutt pick up where Shimon 
Peres’ Labor party left off and 
King Hussein must ultimately step 
forward, with or without a terror- 
ist leader’s endorsement. Natural- 
ly, this is easier said than done, 
but if each nation has the desire of 
having peace in the near future, it 
is certainly possible. Egypt and 
Itreal attest to this.

Syria: menacing Lebanon with its brand of terrorism 


So far, the U.S. has shown 
restraint in its actions against 
Syria based on the deception that 
Assad is trying to release the 
American hostages in Lebanon. 

This deception misses the point 
that Syria has been indirectly 
behind ' the kidnapping and it 
should be held responsible for 
that. 

The Syrian President has 
always proved to be a master 
player in consistently bluffing the 
U.S. to believe Syria is a helpful 
force in Lebanon. Mr. Assad has 
put on the mask of a mediator to 
fool the U.S. The Syrian regime is 
seeking to hold the American 
policymakers hostage to its so- 
called efforts to free the hostagek. 
But there are plenty of reasons 
why the world autUence should 
not buy Assad's act. The Islamic 
Jihad and other terrorist groups in 
Lebanon are not only rag-tag 


groups of fanatics, but they are 
also organizations orchestrated 
and controlled by Syria. The 
organizations responsible for the 
terrorist attacks are head- 
quartered in the Syrian-controlled 
regions of Lebanon, and as such, 
the Syrian government bears re- 
sponsibility for their actions. The 
Syrian regime has set loose those 
terrorists in Lebanon to blackmail 
the oil-rich moderate Arab re- 
gimes to pay billions of dollars in 
protection money and to give 
■itself the opportunity to exercise 
more influence regionally and 
internationally. 

Syrian occupation and interfer- 
ence in Lebanon has been a 
necessary precondition for terror- 
ism. Terrorism is flourishing out 
of Lebanon because Syria has 
been keeping the place in chaos. It 
has weakened the Lebanese 
central government by inciting 


terrorism, formenting communal 
strife and impeding every true 
effort for rinding a reasonable 
solution to the Lebanese crisis. 

For its part, the Free World has 
been paying the price of aban- 
doning Lebanon and allowing the 
Syrians to enhance their influence 
in that nation. Let us not forget 
that forsaking Lebanon on the 

part of the Americans in 1984 was 
a palpable admission of a failed 
policy and a capitulation to Syria 
and its allies. It has been illogical 
and dangerous to accomodate the 
Syrian presencein Lebanon. 

The U.S. should downgrade 
efforts to wdo Syria to help 
release the hostages. American 
attempts to buy Syrian modera- 
tion are doomed to failure 
because the U.S. can offer 
nothing that Damascus wants. 
Syria has been a spoiler in the 


Mideast, a nation dedicated to 
dynamiting every initiative toward 
peace. There is no reason to think 
it can be pressured into doing so 
now. Syria constitutes a disrup- 
tive, destabilizing element and a 
threat to Western interests. 
Whoever the terrorists may be, 
they could not have acted except 
from Syrian<ontrolled terrority 
and with Syrian coitnivance. 

U.S. policy is based on a 
complete misunderstanding of the 
real Syria and its poltical ob- 
jectives. Damascus has had the 
motives and has provided the 
means in waging this systematic 
campaign of terrorism. What 
puzzles observers is what kind of 
accomodation the Americans are 
trying to foster with such a regime 
for whom car-bomb explosions 
are standard operating procedure, 
a regime that rules not by consent 


but by fear and terror. 

In dealing with Syria, the U.S. 
needs to make the essential point 
that those who perpetuate or 
tolerate terrorism cannot expect 
impunity. Terrorists could stop 
being terrorists when fhey 
themselves become terrorized. 
The Syrian regime maintains its 
power domestically by terrorizing 
its opponents. The same regime, if 
not treated the ■ same, would 
perceive the U.S. asiiaving feet of 
clay and as one that cannot act for 
fear and cowardice. The longer 
this Syrian terrortsm goes un- 
checked and unrooted, the more 
entrenched ‘ the free World will 
get, so much so that it iqighi'not 
be able to-eradicate it later.

Lebanon’s stability depends on Syrian intervention 


For the past 1 1 years, Lebanon 
has bera in a state of constant 
dvil war that has devastated the 
country sodaUy, economically 
and politically. A complete mili- 
tary takeover of Lebanon by 
Syria, separating the warring fac- 
tions, is the only sure way of 
bringing any semblance of peace 
and a chance for recovery. 

NORRIS, from p. 3 

Jabotinsky considers the 
West, which believes in 
freedom, humanity and the 
rights of others, as being on 
the path of extinction. He 
suggests it will be replaced by a 
new world which rejects the 
human element and has no 
consideration for the rights of 
others, a world that depends 
on national selfishness as a 
way of life, unable to be 
revived in an atmosphere of 
nationalism, but rather in an 
atmosphere of physical pro- 
wess. 

This demonstrates the extent 
to which Fascist concepts have 
dominated the Zionist move- 
ment since its inception and 
have been carefully carried out 
within a period of half a 
century, concepts developed in 
accordance with a well-studied 
demonic plan that is based on 
the policies of violence, brutal- 
ity and power, rejecting all 
moral or human consid- 
erations. 

The inhumanity and immo- 
rality of Zionism is starkly 
demonstrated by the crimes 
committed by the Israelis. The 
massacres of Deir Yassin, Kafr 
Quassen and Qiubyeh are typi- 
cal examples of the hatred for 
the Arabs. This bitter Zionist 
spirit has darkened life for 
i^abs in Palestine, a life in 


Before the violence broke out, 
Lebanon was', and still is, divided 
into religious districts, or millets. 
The population of each district 
was almost entirely made up of 
one' of the four main reli^ous 
groups; the Maronite Christians, 
the Sunni Moslems, the Shi'a 
Moslems or the Druze Moslems. 
In each district, the community 

which they are deprived of^ 
their dignity and human rights 
under the guise of a psuedo- 
democratic system. 

Israel has been involved in . 
treacherous aggressions^ 
extending over 19 years, during 
which churches, mosques, and 
shrines have not escaped the 
brutality of Israeli attacks. 

Israel has changed the areas 
it has seized by force in the last 
years into societies without 
freedom, devoid of humanitar- 
ian concepts, where power, 
persecution and brutality pre- 
vail. In these sociAies, where 
human rights are ignored and 
spritural values are held in 
contempt, the Arab individual 
has been rebelling against the 
oppression and injustice to 
which he is subjected to in his 
own land and country. 

The heroic Arab resistance 
against Zionist occupation is 
the right and legal path to 
follow. Unable to be daunted, 
even after lightning attacks 
into refugee camps by the 
Israelis where many innocent 
people were killed, the Arabs 
still believe that popular re- 
sistance has played a vital role 
in the active liberation of many 
countries from the yoke of 
foreign domination. As it will 
theirs.

was set up according to the 
dominant religion’s dictates. 

The now all but defunct gov- 
ernment was set up by the French. 
The French set up a Maronite 
Christian rule, which was, at the 
time, the largest group. In 
general, the Christians worked 


Richard C. Ertel 


hard to include all the leaders of 
the remaimng three groups. The 
only known census taken of 
Lebanon revealed there was about 
a 6:3 ratio of Christians to 
Moslems. This was to be the ratio 
' of Christians to Moslems in the 
Parliament. Parties were, as they ■ 
still are, drawn along religious 
hues. 

The 6:5 ratio of Christians to 
Moslems was tolerated by the 
Moslems because it was also

always to be a Christian, the 
Prime Minister a Sunni Moslem 
and the Speaker of the House a

of 49 terrorist attacks occurred 
each month in Israel. 

Thfse attacks are supported by 
the majority of Arabs living in 
Israel. In a recent poll sponsored 
by Al Fajr, an Arabic newspaper 
based in East Jerusalem, terror- 
ism against civilian targets re- 
ceived wide support. When asked 
about the 1978 massacre of civil- 
ians riding on an Israeli bus in Tel 
Aviv, an attack in which 33 were 
killed, 88 percent said that attack 
was justiried. This attitude of 
hatred is at the heart of Israel's 
internal security problepi. 

Many have said Israel is re- 
sponsible for stifling the peace 
process, yet these Arabs were 


Shi’a Moslem. 

The four major religious 
groups/parties in general always 
coexisted peacefully. Whenever 
there was a violent flare-up, how- 
ever, a third party came in to 
separate the fighting factions and 
restore peaces The Lebanese 
Army always remained neutral 
throughout the conflict. Some of 
the countries to act as a third 
party peace-keeping force have 
included France and the United 
States, which landed Marines on 
the, shores of Lebanon in 1958. 

The present day fighting can be 
attributed to many reasons. One 
reason is the 6:5 ratio of Chris- 
tians to Moslems in the Parlia- 
ment. The Arab-Israeli war forced 
a number of Shi’a Moslems to the 
' cities. Musa Sadr, then a promi- 
nent Shi’a politician, said Shi’a 
Moslems now outnumbered the 
Christians, and the Parliament 
should be restructured according- 
ly. Shi’a Moslems formed around 
Sadr and created an independent 
militia. While all this was hap- 
pening, the government started to 
become unresponsive, which 


asked what their preferred ul- 
timate solution to the Palestinian 
problem would be. Of those 
polled, 78 percent responded they 
want a “democratic Palestipian 
state in ALL of Palestine.’’ Only 
17 percent favored a Palestinian 
state that could coexist with the 
present Israeli sute. The (acts 
suggest the Palestinians are noj; 
interested in the peace process or 
any other settlement that does not 
call for the total destruction of 
Israel. 

Israel is faced with a 
dilemma— it can permit the Arab 
population to remain in Israel 
knowing that these people seek to 
destroy it, or Israel can peacefully 
expel the Arabs. If they arc 


produced a great amount of uii- 
certainty. Private militias were 
formed by all major religious 
groups. Add this to the formation 
of the P.L.O. and the Lebanese 
Army’s unsuccessful attempt to..L, 
expel it because of Syrian in- 
tervention and the time is right for 
violent outbreaks. The Lebanese 
government again looked for a 
third party to intervene, but none 
want^ to except for Arab' nations 
unfriendly tov/ards Maronite 
Christians. By 1975, each of the 
militias formed were fighting for . 
power and have continued to fight 
to the present day. 

Syria may not be the best choicf 
to intervene and separate the 
I fighting militias, but it is the most 
logical. It is one of the most stable 
of countries In the Middle East 
and its geographic positioning is 
ideal. A Syrian takeover, if done 
properly, will, surely stop the 
fighting and buy valuable time 
needed to bring about a lasting 
peace.

dimes and jxbnies, Harwell 
'',^'said. 

Goldon immediately called 
campus security. Units in the 
area were told to search for the 
suspect, a 200-pound, 5’ II” 
male with brqwn hair and 
brown eyes. The suspect 
walked out of the Marvin 
Center’s 21st Street exit. 

Taylor detained Taylor at 
Tower Records and took him 
to the security office where 
Goldon identiHed him as the 
man who stole the money. 

> Security issued a barring 
I notice to Harvey. Goode said 
Harvey could be out on bond 


or bail and the barring notice 
would prevent him from re- 
turning to campus. 

Harvey, 32, listed his last, 
address as the Community for 
Creative Non-Violence shelter 
at 4th and H Streets, NE. 

“The only reason we could 
go into Tower Records was 
because we were in fresh 
pursuit,” said Curtis Goode, 
director of the GW Office of 
Safety and Security. 

, Goode Said security is not 
authorized to enter off-campus 
buildings unless it is in pursuit 
of a suspect in a crime that has 
just occurred. Security officers 
would have -to be issued a 
warrant for the artest of the 
suspect on all other occasions. 

• • • „ 

In other news, security is 
investigating a man who was 
using an American Express’ 
card reported missing from 
Thurston Hall two weeks ago.., 

Harwell received a copy of a 
videotape that shows a suspect 
attempting to use the card in a 
Georgetown Park store. 

“We have videotape of sev- 
eral people in a Georgetown 
store, and we believe one of 
those is the subject we are 
looking for,’-' Harwell said.

A wallet was reported stolen 
from , the first floor Marvin 
Center at I p.m. yesterday. 
Security has no leads on -the 
theft.

Tuesday night’s panel for Political Awareness Week’s discussion of The New Supreme Court included 
(from I to r) John Killian, Marcia Niemann, Dr. Robert Frielander, Bill Lutz, Roy Jones and Chris Dunn. 


Skelton (D-Missouri), pointed out 
differences h<l'*4en our in- 
volvement in Nicaragua and our 
involvement in Vietnam. "The 
Nicaraguan freedom fighters are 
willing to fight their own battles. 
They’re not asking, for American 
troop involvement. The promises 
of the Sandinistas have not been 
kept. Many of the contrfis are 
former Sandinistas who are trying 
to reclaim their revolution from a 
repressive Leninist regime.” He 
cited the situation in El Salvador 
as an example of successful U.S. 
intervention in Central America. 


between the U.S. and Nicaragua. 

Ed Long, assistant to Senator 
Tom Harkin (D-lowa), countered 
with quotes from Congressional 
floor debate over the Gulf of 
Tonkin resolution in 1964 that 
asserted the U.S. would not 
become too deeply involved in 
Indochina. He invoked the spectre 
of “bodybags” coming back from 
a foreign war again and claimed 
the contra money would take 
potential funding away from 
’’your student loans.” Jim 
Skinner, aide to Rep. Robert 
Dornin (R-Calif.), also spoke in 
favor of contra aid. 

Lutz cited another poll of GW 
students that found 13 students 
felt "the contra cause is just,” 
and 17 who disagreed. On 
whether the CIA is “justified” in 
sending arms to the contras, 10 
students responded "Yes” and 20 
answered "No.”

and said an infofmal poll shows 
over iwo-thirds of randomly 
selected GW students opposed to 
criminalizing abortion or 
homosexual sodomy but 62 per- 
cent of the people polled opposed 
the Court’s rulings in favor of 
affirmative action quotas. 

Monday night’s card was 
”U.S. -Nicaraguan Relations: The 
Legitimacy of the Contras.*' The 
contras are the American-backed 
guerrilla fighters who are trying to 
overthrow the leftist Sandinista

Charity fundraiser done in style 


makeovers from Stendhal, and 
took advantage of inexpensive 
haircuts- from George of the 
Four Seasons. Style Test's 
sponsors donated their time. 

The fundraiser began at I 
p.m. with the fashion show. 
Students were treated to snacks 
and a live jazz band while they 
waited to get their haircut by 
five stylists from George of the 
Four Seasons. 

Although many students 
appeared to have pre-haircut 
nerves, most were pleased with 
the results. One student said, 
“It’s only hair, if I don't like 
^t, it will dways grow back.” 

Stendhal offered students 


makeovers, facials and skin 
consultations. One Stendhal 
make-up grtist said students 
were more interested in learn- 
ing about skin care than actual- 
ly receiving a makeover. 

Phi Sigma Kappa earlier this 
fall sponsored a Haircut-a- 
thon, featuring stylists from 
George of the Four Seasons, 
which raised $650 for Toys for 
Tots charity and prompted 
Monday’s event. 

“That event went so well, 
[thgt] we thought that we 
would do it again, only this 
time make it bigger,” Owen 
Wild, Style Test’s coordinator 
said. '>•

saying "trick or treat.” The 
neighbors are supposed to be 
scared that the chil^en will play 
nasty pranks on them, so they 
bypass tricks by giving children 
treats such as candy, fruit and 
pennies. 

Then there is the traditional 
custom of placing upon a window 
sill a lit jack-o-lantem with a 
demonic face. According to Irish 
legend, jack-o-lanterns spurred 
from a man named Jack who 
could neither enter Heavan 
because he was a miser nor could 
lie enter Hell because he played 
jokes on the devil. 


Yamoff said. 

• “Going out with a lot of my 
friends and having a good time. It 
means my sister is coming down 
to visit me,” sophomore Allison 
Santoro said. 

• “Having a good time, getting 
dressed up and looking silly,” 
GW Student Association Presi- 
dent Adam Freedman, a junior, 
said. 

• “Halloween means nothing to 
me,” junior Mike Maynard said. 
“I hate it.” 

• Junior Leslie Dash said Hal- 
loween “used to mean eating 
candy, but now it means getting 
drunk.” 

• “Getting a chance to be outra- 
geous,” senior Stephen Richards 
said. 

• “Dressing up, trick-or-treating 
and having a good time," 
freshman Jodi Schneider said. 
“It’s also trying to find that

Will GW students don tradi- 
tional Halloween costumes, such 
as a clown or Batman? Will GW 
students dress as Hulk Hogan or 
Pee Wee Herman, two of this 
year’s most popular stars? At 
GW, is the bobbing for apples 
tradition as popular as it used to 
be? 

Halloween Day commemorates 
ancient new year’s festivals and 
festivals of the dead and was 
originally established In 800 A.D. 
by the Catholic Church as the 
night before All Saints Day. 
Sinister syihbols attempt to con- 
trol th^ atmosphere, and the souls 
of the dead apparently revisit 
homes. October .<3 1 is also when 
ghosts, hobgoblins, witches, black 
cats and demons are supposed to 
take advantage of hel^iless Man 
with their supernatural powers. 

Tomorrow is when youngsters

Arts and Music 


Allan Holdsworth leads path to guitar innovations 



by Eric Lazier 

/ Somewhere in Orange County, 
California, there lives a very 
special musician. He is a veteran 
of the 1970’s jazz-rock fusion 
scene, having played on albums 
by artists of the genre, like Soft 
Machine, The Tony Williams 
Lifetime, Gong, Jean-Luc Ponty, 
and Bruford. He is the possessor 
of one of the most unique and 
origiDal guitar styles in modern 
music. He is pushing forward the 
boundaries of guitar technology 
with his extensive use of the 
'T extraordinary Synthaxe, a revolu- 
tionary new guitar synthesizer. 

To a small but growing cult of 
people, mostly made up of 
guitarists and music afTicionados, 
he is a hero — an idol. Carlos 
Santana says, “He has something 
totally beautiful." Journey’s Neil 
Schon calls him," ,.. too good.” 
Edward Van Halen perhaps sums 
it up best by saying, ‘‘He’s the 
best in my book.” 

Allan Holdsworth proved these 
claims are fully justified at Lisner 
Auditorium on October 22, as the 
opening act for Chick Corea and 
his Electrick Band. For over an 
hour, Holdsworth dazzled the 
audience, eliciting disbelief at the 
. variety and number of sounds he 
coaxed out of his guitar and 
Synthaxe. ' 

His approach to the guitar is 
- much like a horn players; his style 
is fast, fluid, and deadly accurate. 
Bassist Jimmy “Him” Johnson 
- (of Flim & the BB’s fame) and 


drummer Chad Wackerman (an 
alumnus of Frank Zappa’s band) 
did an admirable job working 
with Allan. The show’s high point 
was the last song, “Letters of 
Marque,” where each player took 
an extended solo. This song 
showed that Holdsworth is not the 
only virtuoso in the group. The 
band’s phenomenal performance 
provoked a long standing ovation 
from the crowd. 

After the show, Mr. 
Holdsworth discussed his musical 
background, the ramifications of 
the gtiitar synthesizer and his 
advice to guitarists. 

Q:You have an immediately iden- 
dflaMe, very unique style of 
playing. Who and what were your 
main influences in developing that 
style? 

AH:Well, I don’t think that any 
individual influences have helped 
me develop a style as such. I have 
really diverse influences. My fa- 
ther was a musician, a piano 
player, and I was brought up with 
a lot of old jazz records. I used to 
listen to a lot of saxophone and 
piano. Charlie Christian was the 
first guitar player that I really 
listened to. 

QiTtae saxophone influence Is evi- 
dent to me In your phrasing. 

AH:1 always wanted to play sax- 
ophone, so I try to blow the 
guitar, (laughs) hopefully suc- 
cessfully. 

QiDId it take a long time to find 
your own voice on the instru- 
ment? 

AH: I’m still looking for it. 


Q: Did yon have much formal 
training when you first started 
playing or b most of yooy 
knowlege intuitive? 

AH:No. I had help from my 
father, who was a musician. He 
would help me with chords and 
Scales, but he wasn’t a guitar 
player, so I didn’t have any 
legitimate guitar intuition, al- 
though 1 had a little help. 

Q;What b the thing that appeals 
to yon most about the concept of 
the guitar synlhcsizcr? 

AH: It opens up a whole other 
world of sonics. For example, 1 
didn’t really want to play guitar in 
the first place, so the possibility of 
using synthesis to get sounds that 
I couldn’t get before is really 
intriguing to me. And, also the 
fact that it was like a guitar, so I 
knew how to control it. Also, 1 
just think that the use of synthe- 
sizers is just primitive stage 
in a way; 1 think that it’s going to 
get more and more controlled . 
Q;Vou seem to have become 
identified with the Synthaxe re- 
cently; yon seem to be one Its 
main exponents. 

AH: Well, yeah. I didn’t realize 
that was going to happen; I 
thought there were going to be a 
lot more people (using it], but I’ve 
come to realize that I’m one of the 
few people who are actually 
playing it. I’ve read that a lot of 
people now have gotten it, but 1 
don’t think that they use it as 
seriously as I do. No, I don’t 
mean that to be a putdown on 
their part; I mean that they use it 


in more of a textural way, and I 
really want it to become an 
important part of my, you know, 
my thing. 

Q:Do you think that the guitar 
sytbealzer svlll ever replace or 
make obsolele the traditional 
guitar? 

AH:Oh, no. It’s not supposed to; 
it’s not a threat to the guitar at all. 
I see it as an addition. 

Q:What advice would you. have 
for aspiring gnitarbb reading thb 
Interview? 

AH;Oood luck. Hope for the 
best, and expect the worst. It’s 
just such an unreliable kind of 
thing. Now I see my name in 


magazines, 1 see my photograph 
in magazines, and people think 
that now that people know who 
you are as a guitar player that 
you’re making a lot of money. I 
survive, but the thing is that it’s 
always a struggle to pay the rent. 
Nothing ever changes in that area. 
That always stays the same. It’s 
just that we’ve accomplished 
more muscially; we’ve made more 
records and etc., etc., but as far as 
making a living at it, it’s just as 
hard now as it was when I first 
started ... It just goes on and on. 
But that’s .O.K., because at least 
I’m doing what I want and I still 
actually have some way to live.

Fluttering hands, clattering cas- 
tanets,. brilliant costumes, 
mournful songs and stamping 
feet. Like any art, dance is com- 
plex, especially if the culture is 
unfamiliar. Yet, despite some 
weak moments, the Sunday af- 
ternoon Spanish Dance Perfor- 
mance in the Marvin Center 
Theatre conveyed a sense of the 
beauty and importance of dance 
in Spanish culture. 

The GW Dance Production 
Group and the Spanish Dance 
Society selected dances repre- 
sentative of a variety of regions 
and time periods. The bright 
costumes set the scene, and the 
dancers captivated the audience. 

The “bailes de candil,” An- 
dalusian “dances by candlelight,” 
are dances performed in a tavern 
or home by locals gathered for an 
evening’s entertainment. Despite 
the tinny uped music, the first 
dance, with seven couples, filled 
the small stage with energy. The 
dances revealed each dancer’s 
mastery of the complex footwork 
and arm movements of the 
choreography. 

Consequently, the following 
passionless rendition of the popu- 
lar Spanish song “Malaguena” 


Was quite anticlimatic. 

“Corri-Corri,” said to be the 
most ancient in the Asturias re- 
gion of Spain, was also disap- 
pointing. The nine women lack^ 
the unity that the simple move- 
ments and somber mood required. 

In contrast, “The Choice” was 
performed with precise detail, in 
the curve of th^Tingers, the arch 
of the back, expressing the dra- 
matic emotions of the woman 
choosing between two lovers. 
“The Choice” was the highlight 
of the afternoon. 

For the second half, the musi- 
cians returned, more relaxed and 
enthusiastic as they replaced the 
tape with flamenco music. Mem- 
bCTs of the audience clapped in 
time, and the vocalist charged the 
atmosphere with his trills. 

Each of these dances revealed 
concentration and precision. In 
the two traditional flamenco 
duets, the performers worked 
together smoothly, and the 
flamenco solos were extremely, 
graceful. 

The final company dance 
allowed each memtxr to take a 
solo and reveal their individuality. 
This flnal dance was the perfect 
ending, displaying the talent of 
the musicians and dancers de- 
voted to preserving Spanish tradi- 
tion.

Women journalists

helpful. She said her employers 
evaluated her solely on perfor- 
mance and results, not on gender. 
Hughes supplied his own list of 
UPI women who have advanced 
to top managerial positions. 

Job opportunities for women 
entering the broadcast media have 
also grown considerably from the 
time radio stations refused to hire 
women. 

The program was sponsored by 
the Society of Professional Jour- 
nalists.

Can a woman be a success in 
journalism today? 

A panel of four journalists 
Tuesday night in the Marvin 
Center discussed the recent prog- 
ress of women in the media and 
the gender inequality within the 
journalism field. 

Each panelist told of their 
personal experiences in the jour- 
nalism world and outlined com- 
mon problems women journalists 
face. Maureen Beasley and Carol 
Preston of the Mutual Broad- 
casting Co., Mike Hughes, edi- 
tor-in-chief of United Press In- 
ternational, and Emilie Davis of 
the USA Today and the Gannett 
Publications chain were featured 
\ panelists. 

The journalists agreed that 
salaries of women journalists, like 
those of other female workers, do 
not equal those of their male 
counterparts. Beasley said a study 
she conducted shows only one- 
sixth of women iri the journalism 
profession receive equitable pay 
as compared to men. Both Beasley 
and Preston recalled jobs where 
wage discrimination was obvious. 

Beasley said many employers 
exploit inexperienced graduating 
students because of their vulnera- 
bility and eagerness to ftnd a job. 
Marty settle for salaries which 
barely provide a subsisteiit living, 
she said. 'k ' 

Hughes said women interested 
in becoming journalists should be 
aggressive and inquisitive. As a 
result, employers will take their 
demands seriously, he said. A 
member of tbe Associated Press in 
attendance agreed with Hughes 
and said, “1 don’t think wimpy 
i women belong in this business." 
An aggressive attitude might 
encourage women to seek higher 
level positions, Beasley said. Her 
study, however, shows women 
seldom receive managerial jobs on 
newspapers. Preston admitted the 
situation is worse in the broad- 
casting field. Rather’than blaming 
the employers, Preston suggested 
that once a woman gains control, 
she will strongly discriminate 
against other women who might 
threaten her new position. 

The panelists all agreed the 
decision to have a family can also 
damage a journalist’s goals, 
especially that of aspiring female 
journalists. By taking time off, a 
journalist risks her career since 
she can lose experience and also 
her reputation. The AP member 
in the audience said the competi- 
tive nature of journalism demands 
devoted, hard-working individu- 
als who are not concerned with a 
strong family life. 

Despite these barriers that still 
exist in the journalism profession 
today, women have gained a 
substantial amount of power in 
the past two decades, the journal- 
ists said. Davis described her work 
environment as supportive and

Newsbrief 


14-The GW HATCHET-Thunday, O clobtrM). I9»« 

Frats seek 
more unity, 
voice via HH 
new' Council 


The Inter-Fraternity Forum 
may give way to a more powerful 
organization if some members of 
GW’s Greek community have 
their way. 

Greek Life Advisor Keith 
Rohbins and IFF President Tony 
Pagliaro would like to abolish the 
IFF and organize an Inter- 
Fraternity Council, which they 
say will be a more powerful, more 
effective body for campus 
fraternities. » « " 

"The IFF doesn’t meet the 
needs of the frats as efficiently as 
it could," said Robbins. He said 
that while the IFF is maybe 60 
percent effective, it; strength lies 
in programming. An IFC,. which 
would have affiliations with a 
national fraternity network that 
would increase its programming 
ability and would also serve as a 
public relations outlet for all the 
campus fraternities. , , 

"We’re looking for a strong 
group to meet the needs of the 
.fraternities. It is a better way to 
strengthen and promote the 
system,’’ Robbins said. 

Zeta ^ta Tau President ^It 
Sherman said just the name 
change will help fraternity gov- 
ernment. “U will be s stronger 
organization,” he said. 

. PagUaro doesn’t mind if the 
IFF disappears, along with his 
title of President. "I really don’t' 
care what happens..tp the IFF if 
it’s for the good of the frats.’’.. 

With several fraternity limses 
being renegotiated in the next 
several years, the Orwk commu- 
nity is looking for a unified, 
centralized voice to deal with the 
University’s administrators. 
"And it will be good for the 
University because they won’t 
have to tell ten different people 
the same thing,” Pagliaro said.

Kuester is 
hopeful 


GW Baseball looks 
forward to spring 


Doug Most 

Sport* Editor 

John Kuester, head coach of 
the men’s basketball team, is 
excited. 

He is not excited about the Mets 
winning the World Series, ndr is 
the Redskins release of kicker 
Mark Mosely stirring him up. 
Rather, Kuester is excited , about 
(he potential his basketball team 
has this year, and that a winning 
season is deflnitely in the plans for 
the GW hoopsters. 

Kuester called this past sumtner 
a successful recruiting campaign 
and recognizes the potential 
first-year players can contribute 
to a winning team. “We hhve a lot 
of good young athletes coming 
In,” he said. 

The squad faces an extremely 
difficult schedule, especially at the 
season's outset, Kuester said. 
"Our kids are going to learn a lot 
about themselves in these early 
games." Games against highly 
regarded Syracuse University, the 
University of South Carolina, 
Jacksonville University, and 
Michigam State University in the 
first month of the season pose 
tough contests for the Colonial 
cagers- Add these games to the 
always rigorous Atlantic 10 Con- 
, ference schedule and the team will 
quickly see just how good they' 
are.' ;’*".' • ■ ■ 

Kuester, however, hopes that 
with some consistent plgy, good 
execution of the fast break, and 
boisterous cheering from what is 
hoped to be an extremely vocal 
GW crowd, the Colonials will 
succeed in winning their games 
and making a run at the Con- 
ference title. 

The men’s schedule begins witl^ 
a Nov. 13 exhibition game against 
St. Francis Xavier-Canada at the 
Smith Center. GW’s regular 
season opens on Nov. 29 at home 
against Coppin State University. 
Its Atlantic 10 Schedule com- 
mences with a home contest 
versus the University of 
Massachusetts on Jan. 3. 


Doug Most does not want to rush any of the

Women's soccer 11-7 


The GW women’s soccer team 
raised its record to 1 1-7 with a 5-0 
win over Mercer Community 
College last night in New Jersey. 

The Colonial onslaught opened 
early in the first half when GW’s 
Lisa Cellura knocked in a goal 
from the far left corner, 18 yards 
away. The score held at 1-0 until 
the halftime break. 

After intermission, GW came 
out strong as did high scoring 
forward Diane Kelly who scored 
the team’s next two goals, her 


24|h and 2Sth of the season, and 
bring the score to 3-0. Joan 
Quigley, senior co-captain, scored 
the next goal and Diane Kelly 
capped the evening’s scoring. 

"The team is playing at its peak 
right now,” head coach Adrian 
Glover said. “Hopefully it will 
carry over, into our tournaments 
which are coming up.” 

‘ The Colonials are in Florida 
today to face Barry College, Uni- 
versity of Central Florida, and 
Texas A.M. in the UCF 
Tournament.
