    'Much Better' Fontera's

    Spirits High by Lisa Jean Silva Reporter, The Metropolitan

    MSC President Richard Fontera was transferred from St. Anthony's Central to University Hospital March 19, where he is listed in fair condi-tion.

    Fontera was apparently moved for further testing. He underwent ab-dominal surgery on March 1, and is reported to be recovering well.

    Last week Laughlin said that Fontera was on medical leave from the College "for an indefinite period."

    Only if Dr. Fontera's illness becomes extended, will an interim president be elected, Laughlin said.

    Aid Policy -to Chart 'Progress' by Carson Reed Editor, The Metropolitan

    A new law requiring Financial Aid offices to keep closer track of students' academic progress has resulted in a propo.sal for new Satisfactory Progress guidelines from the MSC Financial Aid Advisory Committee. 1

    The new guidelines proscribe how fast full time and part time students who receive financial aid must progress toward fulfilling their degree re-quirements.

    The new law still gives students up to six years to complete 120 hours, and the proposed guidelines would give a break to freshman students on the assumption that they are the most likely to have problems keeping up with the requirements.

    Probably the most significant change in measuring academic progress is the new requirement that a student's entire record be used-even if the stu-dent wasn't previously receiving financial aid. Under the old system, Satisfactory Progress was only considered during the time the student was receiving aid.

    The Financial Aid Advisory Committee's plan is designed to have minimum impact on students, but the Financial Aid office might not fare as weU. The new regulations put an addition burden of paper work on finan-cial aid offices, further straining manpower and possibly threatening aid delays to stude.nts. .

    The new guidelines must now be checked with federal authorities to en-sure they comply ~ith the new law. 0

    UCD Replacement Moves Ahead continued from page I

    "This bill' gives us increasing flex-ibility," Wartgow said, "we will now be going lo the appropriate campus committees and we'll be getting going on that process soon.:

    Earlier this year, AHEC was given the go-ahead by the Joint Budget Committee of the legislature to bor-row money against the sale of the East Classroom building. But the $10 million limit put on the loan would

    finance only about half of the con-struction phase of the new facility, Wartgow said in January.

    Alternative financing for the con-struction has been explored by AHEC and the CU. regents for some time, with one proposal which would have committed students to pay for the new building through a !tpecial bond

    fee being scrapped after the Trustees of the Consortium of State Colleges publicly opposed the plan. 0

    The major change is that, when being checked for -eligibility for federal aid, a student's en'tire college academic record --not just a part of

    The new federal rule, which went into effect on January 1st and which aid offices around the country are

    now trying to implement for the first time, stiffens old "academic progress" requirements.

    The U.S. Department of Education now requires colleges to make students maintain "satisfactory academic progress" toward com-pleting 120 credit hours within six years.

    it-- will be examined. . Martin says the rule, however,

    could convince some schools to lower their academic standards for making satisfactory progress in order to make the new federal paperwork easier to do.

    Indeed, the major impact of the new rule will be on campus aid administrators, not students, sources suggest.

    That means students must keep making the progress during terms in whiph they don't receive any aid, too.

    "Some institutions are just too darn lenient" in letting students with bad grades or without a clear degree pro-gram keep getting aid, explains Duncan Heimrich, a U.S. Dept. of Education spokesman.

    Last April, the National Commis-sion on Student Financial Assistance reported thar, while all schools require students to maintain satisfac-tory academic progress in order to get aid, few colleges actually monitored their aid recipients' progress - very closely.

    'Tm sure intentions were good," says Clint Cooper, district dean of students for Miami-Dade Community College. But he adds that keeping track of the academic records of the thousands of students who drop in and out of urban commuter schools, . even when they're not receiving any aid, puts a big new burden on the aid office.

    The commission, created in 1980 to draw up student aid bills for Con-gress, could find..few examples of col-leges taking away aid from students with bad grades or who took too long to get through college.

    Colleges individually must now publish guidelines for just how fast a

    student must progress over six years toward 120 hours, and submit reports

    Cooper questions "the real need for such a regulation" because Miami-Dade, for one, already enforces its

    . satisfactory progress guidelines. "We've been doing it for years,"

    adds Marcia Sexton, aid director at the University of Colorado, although "we were not previously monitoring those students who have not been on aid."

    At Yale, the regulation "is not going to require any change in academic policy," reports Jacqueline Foster, Yale's undergraduate aid director. 0

    ASMSC_ Candidates Sp~ak Out




    Lisa Espiritu and David Sutherland

    by Terri Moore Reporter, The Metropolitan

    Better communication with students or ignorance and apathy-these are the two very dif-ferent presidential platforms that MSC students will vote on April 2, 3, 4. -



    Lisa Espiritu, candidate for presi.' dent, and David Sutherland, vice president running mate, bl:lse their campaign on improving communica-tions with students. "Most students don't know what the student govern-ment does," said Espiritu, "or what the student fees are spent on."

    legislative aide at the capitol, said the student government needs to be more structured and formal like the state government. "A more formal and strctural student government will allow for more debate and more things will probably get done."

    "The student government deals with the administration and the students tend to defer authority," said Sutherland. "The administration manipulates the student government. He's the kid and not the professor is

    "We have lots of outside interest groups pulling for us and we expect this campaign to run in the millions of dollars because we are going to buy votes," ~id Teufel.

    "We are a pair of crafty guys," said Porter, "We consider ourselves con-artists and the administration will not play games with us, we are playing hard ball."

    An impromptu survey of .students let Teufel and Porter know that the main concern of the students is to

    "It's not 'may the best man win' but the best dirty tricks win and that's the way we are going to do it. "

    -ASMSC Presidential Candidate Hugo Teufel

    the kind of thing that exist now be-tween student government and the administration."

    Espiritu with legislative experience and Sutherland with student govern-ment experience feel that their knowledge and experience will be a benefit-t:o the students.

    Hugo Teufel, the guy with the short hair running for president, and David Porter, the guy with the beard running for vice president, call themselves the illegitimate offshoot of the University of Wisconsin's "Pail and Shovel Party." Their official platform is based on ignorance and apathy.

    A misunderstanding regarding the change of voting dates and the date for filing intent to run leaves these two candidates, Teufel and Porter; as write-in votes.

    "It's not 'may the best man win' but the best dirty tricks win and that's the way we are going to do it," said Teufel.

    After reading and re-reading the election rules and regulations these two candidates decided that it was in their best interest not to break the rules but to bend and go around them.

    have fun. In addition to having fun Teufel

    and Porter have other ideas. Porter's plan for solving the park-

    ing problem include getting rid of the coin meters. A flat fee at the be-ginning of the semester should allow students to park without the hassle of long lines and always having to have quarters.

    "We need to enhance enrollment," said Porter. More job fairs with people from the business community will make students more aware of job opportunities.

    These two write-in candidates Teufel and Porter say they will go to all lengths to win this election and if they don't win they will see that the election is voided.

    As these two platforms battle for the winning ticket there are 25 can-didates vying for the 25 senatorial vacancies. They are: David J. Ander-son, Benjamin Boltz, Linda A. Bruce, Sigmund Clement, Cynthia Dennis, Pedro J. Escobar, Jr., Dave Garcia, Phillip T. Lozano, Seott McMillan, Brenda Oswald, Manual A. Patino, James. A. Roszel, Heidi M.

    New,y-Created Senate Part of Student Ballot

    For the first time, MSC students will be voting to elect members for the newly-formed student government Senate.

    In the past the Joint Board .of MSC Student Government was made up of two committees: the Curriculum Committee and the Student Affairs Com-mittee, totaling 17 members. "There were, no official guidelines to the organization of the Joint Board and it evt:ntually became ineffective" said Mike Eagan, election commissioner. '

    Last November the students voted on a new constitution that created an MSC Senate to replace those boards.

    The Senate is made up of 25 members that form four committees: The Academic Affairs Committee; Financial Affairs Committee; the Club Affairs Committee; and the Rules and Regulations Committee.

    "With the organization of the new Senate we now have guidelines to follow and it should be effective," said Eagan. 0

    & LET-----------

    B ucketeers Shovel Bull Into Pail Editor:

    We, the illegitimate offshoot of the University of Wisconsin Pail and Shovel party, in order to truly serve the Two Great Ideals we hold above all others, that is both Ignorance and Apathy, have laid down these fourteen tenets:

    I. The erection of a memorial to the great Stephen Potter between the library and the Arts Building so that all may see the founder of modern thought.

    A. A special wing will be added to the library, removing, or course, the Science Building. This wing will be named, quite obviously, the Stephen Potter wing.

    B. A special "Yeoville" scholarship will also be set up each year for those students who most exemplify the ideals of One-upmanship, Superman-ship, and Brinkmanship. Salesmanship will be excluded for the first four years.

    C. The name Odoreida will not be used, and from this date on will be denoted by

    II. A football stadium to be built on the parking lots whose boundaries are Wazee, Twelfth, Speer, and Lawrence Streets. This will solve many pro-blems. First, it wiJJ,not interefere with parking since we all know that UCD students park in these lots anyway. Second, it would provide incentive to form an MSC football team. Third, and we feel most important, it would provide an outlet for young nymphets to wear revealing clothes with which they would be able to root their team on in by jumping up and down with porn-porns and the like.

    III. A twenty-five percent pay increase for all economics professors and promotion of Gerald Stone to President of MSC.

    IV. The institution of capital punishment for repeat parking lot offenders. This would, of course, exclude anyone who is mentioned in articles I through 111.

    Candidates Promise Guidance, Assistance

    Editor: There has been great improvemerit during Brendan Kelly's Student

    Government administration; but, there are several areas that need a great deal of attention.

    !i.rst, ~tudent f~ are not well spent. This is due to manipulative ad-m1mstrahon efforts at budgeting the money. Also, the student represen-tatives in the process lack experience in dealing with such manipulation. Benefit to the students is often not the bottom line.

    Second, within the Student Government itself are several problems: Per-sonalities, lack of experience, a few non-serious attitudes and a new system of government are just a few of the causes.

    We also feel that MSC student clubs and organizations are largely ig-nored. They are met with bureaucracy, routine, and a general lack of respect. Clubs have little say in policies that effect them and no communica-tion line to Student Government.

    Next, there is an anti-AHEC attitude among Student Government members. Again this is due to conflicts between AHEC and MSC administra-tion and manipulation of student government leaders to effect an anti-AHEC attitude. Lack of communication within Student Government enhances this attitude.

    Last, President Brendan Kelly has done a superb job in representing the students in off-campus arenas, particularly at the statehouse over House Bill 1360. What happens when B. K. leaves office? There is no one to step in and continue. 1

    We are running for President and Vice-President of Student Government because we feel we can solve or go a long way toward dealing with these pro-blems. We will bring Student Clubs in better contact with Student Govern-ment; they will not remain separated. We will provide guidance and assistance to all student leaders in dealing with the administration.

    We will provide competent administrative management. We are pledged that Student Government will be a learning center for student leaders to im-prove communication, decision making and leadership. We will continue the efforts of Brendan Kelly in fighting for our school. Our ideal will be open communication within Student Government and with the students. The bot-tom line will always be "benefit to the students."

    - Lisa Espiritu Dave Sutherland

    V. A weekly updated fact sheet posted on Jvery bulletin board to inform students of new ways to get around parking regulations.

    VI. A free fire zone in the cafeteria in the Student Center. . VII. A snack bar placed in the southwest corner of the library. VII. Because of the distance involved in travelling to the Mercantile or the

    Mission, 25-cent beer dispensers will be placed wherever pop machines are presently.

    IX. The Pail & Shovel party will be the only party allowed to exist on cam-pus.

    X. A minimum of $100,000 will be given to the English Department to conduct a study of Jack Kerouac's impact on modern society. One of the key questions will be finding out just who in the hell the "Denver Doll" really is (it is rumored that his son attends UCD). This money will be in small bills, no larger than twenties, and will be left in care of the ASMSC President.

    XI. A years supply of benzidrene will be provided for the ASMSC Presi-den~ and Vice-President.

    XII. A wet bar will be installed in the office of the AS MSC President and Vice-President. This will include swizle sticks, bar napkins, a bartendress, and actual .pictures of Tahiti on the wall.

    XIII. In keeping with the policy of open enrollment there shall also be open graduation.

    XIV. All private study booths will be sound proofed, and, in addition, a stereo, dry bar, and spacious cot will be added to make the booths conducive to the kind of studying we all know goes on in there.

    .. .nuff said? We thiIJk so, and we feel that given these basic ten~ts our campus could actually be quite enjoyable. Well, at least for some of us. But then, that is the way the game is played.

    As hungry as I am I'm still a faithful man I do believe in God He's given hope and peace But WHY dear Lord Djd strangers come And kill my 1-0cal priest

    I'm told I need democracy A style they say will make me free But candidates for whom I choose

    MSC Prof Blasts Student Leader Editor:

    Mr. Kelly and Mr. DeLeo enjoy the privilege of space on your op-ed page without any obligations to the code of journalistic ethics that Mr. Pearson spoke of so eloquently in his talk reported on page three of your March 14th issue. It is ironic that they would abuse that privilege in the same issue.


    A (good) reporter would not report unsubstantiated hearsay as fact. A (good) reporter would not report one person's side of an issue as though there could be no other relevant facts.

    Nevertheless, I must agree with Messrs. Kelly.and DeLeo that, except for grade protests, there seems to be no clear protocols established at MSC for dealing with student grievances. There are, however, widely understood traditions, stemming from the chain-of-command concept. These practices are intended to provide due process and protect the rights of all concerned;

    ~18(1 ( i' e11 n uent Ileport

    Time once again to vote for the leaders of your student government. This year, for the first time, twenty-eight elected positions are up for

    grabs. These positions include 25 Student Senators, the Student Trustee, and a President and Vice President.

    These people will have to be able to function as experts on college issues such as: general studies and F. T.E.'s, role and mission, academics, students affairs and grievances, business and finance, student fee funding, and the merger issues. They must be knowledgeable about the various areas that make up Auraria; DACC, UCD, MSC, AHEC, and who deals in what area, at what level, and when. They must be willing and able to give their time to problem solving, advice, to inform, persuade, confront, and above all, speak out. Each elected person will represent MSG students to the college, schools governing board, boards, state legislation, and the community.

    formal protocols provide better protection, but one can only make use of what exists. ,

    So far as the tradition of process is concerned, this matter has not pro-gressed beyond the Department Chair level. I have offered to mediate bet-ween the student and her instructor. At the time of writing the student has not chosen to take advantage of that offer. The only abuse that I know of to date is the effort of Messrs. Kelly and DeLeo to interfere with her right to make that choice.

    I decline to discuss the points at issue. I will not consent to have the case tried in the newspaper until the procedures that do exist to provide due pro-cess have been exhausted.

    - John Spradley Chairman,

    MSC Department of English

    We are currently involved in these and many other areas: Radio Station Peer Counseling Discount Bus Passes United States Student Assoc. Student Fees Clubs Financial Aid Academics Curriculum Parking Campus Planning Media

    Also, look for clocks and pencil snarpeners in the student lounges. Each and everyone can vote on:

    April 2 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. April 3 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. April 4 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. '

    A debate will be held on March 29, 1984, in the student government_con-ference room. Come listen to your future leaders. Room 340 D of the Student Center is the sight. Everyone is welcome, and we still need write-ins for the Student Trus.tee position.

    Although Education is a chance to look forward to security in the real world, we must not lose sight that we need a secure world to look forward to.

    Student government is constantly building and looking for new ideas. This election gives new people a chance to affect the changes needed on the cam-pus and in the world to continually fit our needs as students.

    Representatives from various cam-pus administrations discussedorganizational and financial ques-tions regarding the possible merger ofUCD and MSC, during an opnforum last Monday. The panel discus-sion was sponsored by "The AurariaInterfaith Ministry St, FrancisCenter" and was the last in the IssuesForums on Higher Education.

    Patticipants discussed the strengthand weaknesses of the culrentAuraria campus organizational struc-ture.

    "This campus has a real identityproblem," Deputy AHEC ExecutiveDirector, James Shoemer said."Another maior problem is the lack ofa central governing authority. Thereis clearly a duplication of administra-tion activities. "

    John Weihaupt, UCD ViceChancellor for Acadetnic Affairs.agreed.

    "The lack of a central authority is amajor problem," Weihaupt said. "It's

    f; very difficult to make quick decisions,

    has been successful. The institutionshave been successful. The problemsare not on an educational level butpolitical. " CoIe said, and MSC stu-dent government president BrendanKelly agreed.

    "The quality of education atAuraria is not a problem," Kelly said."The biggest problem the campusfaces is looking out for its own in-

    terest, not the students' interest, Theproblem is not the organization orfunding, but (that) none of us arewilling to work together. Each gover-

    ' ning board has its own proiects."The panel discussd possible op-

    tions in consolidating governanee atAuraria.

    Freid a Holly, MSC Faculty Presi-dent, pointed out that each of thecurrent options carries its owndangers. Holly said the primary con-sideration is whether a new govern-ing board 'would give us tberesources we need."

    "Governing several institulionsmay be too much for (the Regents) tohandle," she said. And the Trwtees ofthe Consortium of State Colleges"Often seem to favor the westernslope schools. "

    Funding for capital constructionwas also addressed by panel par-ticipants.

    "The capital investments on thiscampus are tragic," AHEC's Shoemersaid. "Each institution is in a positionwhere it must fend for itself. Unfor-tunately it's a bad time in Coloradoright now for getting capita!.. Weneed'to share our resources andequipment." tr

    Fame and Fortune Follow Felon by Scott Mohr Reporter, The Metropolitan

    In 1976, when John Dean was in-vited to speak at the University of Northern Colorado, a big stink was made over the fact that student fees were being spent to bring to campus a convicted criminal.

    In 1976, G. Gordon Liddy was in prison with his mouth shut and re-mained there until, ironically, his sente~ce was commuted by Jimmy Carter in 1977.

    Now,_ more than 10 years after Watergate, With the statute of limita-tions expired and his autobiography published, Liddy has taken his hawkish conservatism, bizarre wit, and harsh view of reality on tour, and is captivating audiences largely com-posed of students who were watching the Flintstones while Dean was spill-ing his guts to the Senate Committee.

    So it was that the UCO Events Board, at a cost of about $7,000, presented G. Gordon Liddy at the Paramount Theatre Monday night.

    College Press Flock to Utah At least SS schools participated in

    this year's Rocky Mountain Collegiate Press Association conference in Provo, Utah. Representatives from college newspapers, broadcasting departments, yearbooks and literary magazines gathered together from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

    The RMCPA conference was spon-sored this year by Brigham Young University.

    A full year of planning, headed by RMCPA President and' BYU student Cyndy Perkovitch, culminated into three days of non-stop speakers, seminars. workshops, contests, and banquets.

    Workshops for editors, feature

    Provo, as seen from room 929. writers, photographers, editorial writers, sports writers, as well as for those in radio and television, made the convention an intense learning ex-petience, crammed with informa-tion. As a result, many came away from their spring break vacations in a

    state of exhaustion. For the representatives of The-

    Metropolitan it was a gratifying ex-perience. The only sour note came when our Production Manager and Photographer Jack Affleck was stopped and questioned by the local-

    constabulary for "shooting" children in residential Provo. Provo, it seems, has suffered the same sort of rash of child kidnappings and molestations as Denver, and the nervous parents of Provo were quick to spot Jack and his camera lurking around groups of frolicking kids. Luckily, the whole matter was cleared up, and, as it turns out, the foray produced a Second Place photograph in the RMCPA live photography competi-tion.

    In Provo, which boa5ts only two bars and frowns on carrying on like a Shriner, the busy itinerary was pro-bably a great blessing.

    If nothing else had come out of it, it was a rare opportunity to discuss, debate, and generally hobnob with peers from a wide range of schools and an even wider range of media. 0

    Journalists Debate Freedom and _Resposibility For aspiring college journalists, thi~

    year's Rocky Mountain Collegiate Press Association Conference was a rare opportunity to hear some of America's top professionals in the media talk about what is happening

    in journalism, and, most important, what should be happening in jour-nalism.

    Elmer Lower, retired president of ABC News , criticized the "horse-race" aspects of election


    -. rlw 'tlil i Pat+,' ~

    coverage, and cautioned the audience that good ratings were not equivalent to good ethics or good journalism.

    A panel of experts, including in-vestigative reporter Dale Van Atta, CBS News correspondant Sandy Gilmore, and congressional lawyer Randy Rader debated the proposed limiting of the Freedom of Informa-tion Act and debated the validity of the media ban in Grenada ..

    Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein became something of a media event himself as reporters and "action cams" from Salt Lake and Provo flocked in for his address to students. Bernstein, who dismissed he and Bob Woodward's success in unraveling the Watergate story as "just plain hard work," said that too many journalists weren't willing to "wear out shoe leather" in an effort to get the whole story. Bernstein also complained of "stenographic jour-nalism" -thal too many . reporters were willing to take the statements of politicians and others at face value, without finding out if the statements are true.

    Carl Bernstein

    Carole Simpson

    And NBC News correspondant Carole Simpson talked of the perils of the journalism field for women and minorities. "Of the two," she said, "being a woman has been the greater handicap." _

    Throughout the conference, the major topic of discussion was the fading credibility of the media. After the three days were over, college iournalists went away with a lot to mull over in terms of their resP.on-sibilities and the importance of a strong ethical foundation to their

    work. RMCPA President Cyndy Perkovitch said in her message to the students "We hope you will emerge from this convention feeling we have added a dimension to your talent." For most ot the convention-goers,_ the broadening was on an even deeper level than that. 0 ~1..;;;;;;:;:iiji;iiii:::;:;.mm .... .;. .... ~ .... ~;;;;;:::::;;;:;;;.. ...... .ljiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiijjiiijiiiiiiiiiiiiiliiiiiilliiilliiiiiiiliiiilliiiii~iiii1iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii0

    Top Honors ~or The Met ~taff

    ""' al 8

    by Carson Reed Editor, The Metropolitan

    I've known it all along, of course. The Metropolitan has been very lucky to attract some very talented, ,and very dedicated staff members.

    Still, it is always gratifying to have the fruits of a year of hard labor acknowledged by fellow journalism students, and by the journalists and teachers of journalism who acted as judges in the canned competi~ion of this year's Rocky Mountain Collegiat~ Press Association Conference in Provo, Utah.

    Out of the 38 or more schools at the conference, The Metropolitan com-peted among the largest 12; four-year schools with circulations above 10,000. In preparation for the competition, the Production Manager and I sat- down late last fall and poured through the morgue looking for the best pieces ot work from the last year of papers.

    We entered in 25 categories ranging from Best Special Supplement to Best Editorial Cartoon. Often, the choices of what to submit were extremely-dif-ficult to make.

    At the risk of sounding immod~t, I'd like to share with readers of The Metropolitan who won, and how they won.

    In a very real sense, the awards belong to the students. faculty, and staff of the Auraria Campus. The quality of our work here reflects our efforts to please a mature, sophisticated, and demanding audience that has little time to waste on reading newspapers. I am most proud when I reflect on the fact that no story was ever written, no illustration ever drawn, no page layed out in the hope of winning some award. All of the long hours and anguish of our staff was in an effort to serve the readers of The Metropolitan in the best way we can.

    Here are our winners: News Editor Kevin Vaughan pick-

    ed up a First Place award in --what else?-- News Writing. The award was for his coverage of the controversy surrounding the placement of Red Grooms' "Shootout" sculpture on UCD property, a controversy that ultimately led to its removal.

    Reporter Michael Ocrant picked up a Second Place award in the same category for his story on a rather I '* 'ii suspect parking survey commissioned . 1L~ by RTD and AHEC.

    Kevin Vaughan

    ~ Reporter Susan Skorupa took First ~ Place in News Feature for her article _s on CoPirg in our first edition last fall. .8 The judge cited "Writing style and _g use of descriptive imagery" as the a. f-..-;;;...~....._._...__..__ ____ __......_~reasons for her selection.

    Susan Skorupa

    1985 RMCPA conference . Slated for Denver

    Next year's Rocky Mountain Collegiate Press Association conference is slated to be in Denver. The Editor and Assistant Editor of the Arapahoe Community College paper, the Rapp Street Journal, offered to host the con-vention next spring.

    For students in communications, English, and journalism in the Denver area, having the convention on home turf will be a great opportunity.

    At the convention, The Metropolitan pledged their support to the group from ACC, and it is their hope, as well as ours, that all of the schools of the Auraria Campus can join in and be a part of next year's convention. 0

    Assistant Editor Keith Levise took First Place in General/Specialized Column for his semester-long assault on the cold war in Friends & Neighbors. Of his column, the judge said "Levise tackled a variety of sub-jects on the American scene, showing his familiarity with history and draw-ing on worthy personages for apt quotes, to support logical arguments. Good depth."

    Keith L.evise ReporterD.J. Owens won a Second

    Place award for his review of the play "Calm Down Mother." According to the judge "D.J. Owens, in the space of some three hundred words, covers a complex play and covers it well ... Gets right to the point ... good description.

    D.J. Owens

    Production Manager J ~ck Affleck took First Place for his creative layout of our feature on Amnesty Interna-tional. In addition, Jack took Second Place in the live photography com-petition in Provo.

    Jack M. Affleck Former Art Director John Foley

    took a total of three awards for his - ~ work at The Metropolitan . John's il-

    7 lustration "Grief' for a story on cop-ing with the death of a loved one took First Place, his layout of the ad "We at The Metropolitan" took Second

    1983: Not a very good year Place and his layout of the first "Bits and Pieces" page took Third Place.

    Artist Melissa Moulton took Second Place for her illustration "European Peace Movement," highlighting a story about efforts to stop the deploy-ment of Cruise and Pershing missiles

    'Careers' Supplement in Europe. Last, but definitely not least, a big First Place award went to the entire

    staff of The Metropolitan for the best supplement. "Careers" was an am-bitious, eight-page focus on what to do after school--and during. Of the sup-plement, the judge said "Ostensibly the reason one goes to college is to better oneself and to launch oneself into a career. This supplement hits the nail on the head as far as writing to the market. This series identifies a very real con-temporary problem, anticipates future scenarios and offers solutions in a professional manner. Generally very well written."

    In addition to the certificate awards, The Metropolitan took a number of Honorable Mentions:

    ,._ 'Yes' Provid~s Audio, Visual Sensory Barrage



    by D.J. Owens Reporter, The Metropolitan

    A remarkably yovng crowd gathered at McNichol's Arena last Tuesday to enjoy a noticeably aged Yes. Jon Anderson, without whom Yes would not be Yes, was restrained as his cordless microphone, bracketed around his neck, allo"'7ed him to have a freedom of movement that he really didn't utilize at all. His voice was heavenly, but the overwhelming im-pressior. was that he just wasn't feeling the music.

    Yes newcomer, Trevor Rabin, was the only member of the group who appeared to be enjoying himself. He moved about the stage freely; cring-

    - ing and grimacing as his playing touched every base imaginable. He fitled the shoes of former Yes axeman Steve Howe admi~ably. Overflowing with enthusiasm, Rabin played to the far reaches of the 15,000 fans on hand. At the start of the show he shared the spotlight with Anderson, but as the evening progressed, bllSsist supreme Chris Squire moved to the center as Rabin took off on mu!!ical tangents and Anderson went to the recesses of the saucer shaped stage.

    Squire's bass was so melodic it's amazing he only 1lad four stri(lgs to

    work with. Indeed, some lead guitarists ~on't even sound this good! He teamed up with drummer Alan White to form a driving rhythm sec-tion, and they did an extremely plucky combined solo. These two guys might not have been having as much fun as Rabin, but they did manage to take out their frustrations very constructively.

    The solos in the show were presented as part of each band


    member's introduction, and were sp~ead out through the duration of the show. This was a brand new ap-proach; progressively faithful to the Yes tradition. Rabin's intro/solo stood out above the rest as he niade pas-sionate love to his hollow-bodied elec-tric guitar.

    Yes, the rhasters of innovation, had the spotlight banks turning this way and that, ~escending upon the elaborate stage. Star shaped lazers

    No Buffet Where the n eer and Antelope Play

    The Grinch's Guide ,

    to Gastronomical Gratification

    by Grinch Food Criti~ at Large, 'fhe Aletropolita11

    A couple of weeks ago, my editor informed me of the fact that I haven't reviewed any free buffets on the west side. "Go westt young Grinch" was his battle-cry. Being the kind of individual that prefers the wide-open spaces to the claustrophobic confines of the big city, I always look forward to any ex-cursion to the western slope.

    Needless to say, there just aren't any free buffets on the western slope just a lot of livestock and sagebrush. Taco-bar and happy hour are two 'very unheard-of terms out where the deer and the antelope play.

    Confused, dejected, and hungry, I turned myself around and headed back to Denver. All of a sudden, I realized that I had misconstrued just exactly where my edito~ wanted me to go; he was talking about the west side of Denver. See what ffitlrry mix-ups can occur when miscommunication is the culprit?

    Having returned to Denver, I decided to redeem mys~lf and search out buffets on the west side. Much to my surprise, I found three-all within three blocks of each other-and all different in their own, unique ways.

    A huge, red brick house at 2527 West 26th Ave. is the home of La Loma. Variety is not the main ingredient here; the only food items available for the buffet-goer are chicken wings, tortilla chips, and watermelon. The chicken wings were qttite juicy and tasty, but the watermelon slices looked like they were suffering from an acute case of heat stroke. The problem: La Loma put the watermelon slices next to and underneath the heat lamp that keeps the tortilla chips warm. The result: hot watermelon dip. Simply stated, this place needs more food variety to keep up with the competition down the str~. '

    See what merry mix-ups can occur when miscommun~cation is the culprit?

    B~by Doe's Matchless Mine, located at 2520 West 23rd Ave., instantly reminded me of an old, rickety mine building that could blow over in a strong gust of wind. Walking through the massive front door. I proceeded to find my way down a dark labyrinth to the bar. This is the first place I've found in Denver that has delicious six-foot submarine sandwiches (sliced, of course.) But that's not all. A gi;eat variety of real cheeses, vegetables and dip, and 32 ounce jugs of beer can fill up any hungry grinch. However, 1 didn't want to get too filled up, because the next stqp is right next door. Little did I know, I was better off staying at Baby Does -or even La Loma.

    Chili Pepper advertises "fun in our cantina for happy hour," but what I found instead was an over-obnoxious crowd, spacey waitresses (read: horri-ble service), and a taco-bar that ran out of food 20 minutes before it was scheduled to end. This is inexcusable: Any Mexican restaurant worth its beans can find the necessary ingredients to keep a taco-bar well-stocked-right up to the end of happy-hour. And to top this gastronomical non-event off, I sat at the bar for 15 minutes waiting to be served, and didn't even so mi:lch as get a look of any kind from the bartender. All in all, a very un-happy hour.

    My recommendation for all of you west-siders: stick with Baby Doe's. It has the best combination of food, ambiance, and service. La Loma doesn't

    hav~ the variety, and Chili "Pooper" doesn't have .anything socially or gastronomically redeemable. ,

    Now that I have an ample supply of gas, maybe I should head back to the wide-open spaces... . O

    'El Norte' an Adventure of Terror and Magic by Carson Reed Editor, The Metropolitan

    Through an early morning haze, two young victims of poverty and violence look to the north -El Norte- and see a dreamy, shimmer- . ing vision of a formica-covered and chrome-plated oasis.

    Behind them lies the soul-wrenching beauty of their Andean village, deceptively peaceful in the dawn, revealing nothing of the harsh economic and political realities they nope to escape. .

    back into their lives. But there is a sad lesson to be

    learned in El Norte, that much of the shimmering oasis of the U.S. is nothing more than a mirage. Like the Golden Fleece, the U.S. is guarded by a many-headed dragon. Like the Seven Cities of Cibola, the "land of opportnity" is a malicious fable of im-mense proportions.

    What they hope to find in "the' north" is as vague as the destination itself -a vast promised. land as sur-real to them as the Golden Fleece, as magnetic as the Seven Cities of Cibola. El Norte is a film about the yearning heart, a much-needed film that helps to explain the kinds of nebulous dreams and nightmares that drive increasing numbers of people from Latin America to the U.S.

    Enrique (David Villalpando) feels the need for a better life-'El . Norte' is his destination.

    Despite the sadness, El Norte j s laced with wry humor and permeated by an obvious lust for life. Director Gregora Nava and Producer Anna Thomas , who co-wrote the screenplay, have given us a very human film, a contemporary quest that shows a rare depth of compassion and 4nderstanding without being humorless, maudlin, or preachy.

    For Enrique (David Villalpando), the horrifying image of his father's head hanging from a tree in a moonlit square drives him from his villge in fear of the militia. .

    For his sister Rosa (Zaide Silvia Guterrez), there is the grim certainty that she would soon "disappear" as her mother did.

    For both, there is a strong magic at work in the United States, a magic they understand in terms of glossy, full-color images of linoleun:i floors and porcelain toilets.

    Armed only with their own in-nocence and faith, the two make their way up through Mexico, only to join an endless sea of desperate people bottlenecked in Tijuana.

    Here, on the very doorstep of the promised land, they find hopelessness and poverty worse than they had ever imagined could exist. Only a few .>hort miles from the affluence of San Diego, Rosa and Enrique lay in a shantytown hovel, alternately hopeful and despondent, and quietly patient.

    For all of their arduous journey, those last few miles prove to be the 1on~est of all. Their thwarteP. at-

    tem-pts to cross the heavily-patrolled border into the U.S. bring home the inhuman cruelty of our immigration system.

    The movie makes great use of cut-away shots to contrast the very human misery and danger suffered by Enrique and Rosa with the over-whelming focus of manpower, money, and technology working in-differentl:y to keep them out, or worse, to send them home where they would certainly die. ,

    Ultimately, they must crawl those last few miles on hands and knees, through the darkness and stench of an old sewage pipe, a living nightmare that reaches its height when the two are attacked by starving rats.

    follows their new life in Los Angeles. They are taken, by their guide and escort, to a sleazy motel for illegals. In a poignant scene of mixed emo-tions, Enrique and Rosa discover the electric light to be dim; the porcelain toilet to be filthy .

    For them, it is still a success, of sorts. They struggle with the lowly jobs and even lower wages that illegal aliens are assigned, and it is enough, for awhile, to bring hope and humot.

    El Norte is not for the timid -it portrays both emotional and physical brutality on a level so personalized through the characters that you can't help but be moved. But it is also not a movie for the incurably cerebral. Its message moves in a straightforward way to caution and counsel every heart that yearns. D

    SPORIS A Spring Break Baseball Boogie

    c ~ .


    by Michael Klahr Special to The Metropolitan

    The day we . left for the Metro baseball team's Sunday to Sunday spring break excursion to Florida it was snowing in Denver, and I was glad. It would add wallop to that first gagging breath of humid Tampa air. Vacations should be different .

    Two years ago, on the team's first trip to Florida under Head Coach Bill Helman, Metro played local Florida colleges. This time they would play Class A minor league teams with the best professional prospects the New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, and Pittsburgh Pirates could sign the past two years.

    As we boarded the Arrow jet, there was the excitement of a vacation on Florida's Gulf Coast, and more, the beginning of a journey that would answer questions for the men on the team.

    Sitting back in my seat as the plane leveled off at 35,000 feet, I was cramped in six:across amidst 20

    ballplayers I'd never m~t, and I felt alone. They say baseball is not a team sport but one where nine men on a diamond do things alone together. Cert?inly each member had thought of his own personal miracle to be noticed by a major league sc~ut and given a chance in professional baseball.

    Still the. talk, with few exceptions, was of whether "we" could play with them. It was a legitimate question for a talented but young team that had stumbled to a 3-8 start; there was the question of being outright em-barassed. But this freshman and junior college transfer-laden squad, with few who had played together before, was already becoming a team.

    We drove rented vans from Tampa Airport to our motel in St. Petersburg. Monday was a beach day, and that night the seniors tried to remember which -bar~ had been best for meeting women two years ago. The 1982 teaJ1l had proven, if not on the diamond, that on this odd

    ______________________ ....


    working vacation among the beautiful and bikinied who flocked to the Gulf Coast for spring break, Metro could play with the best of them. The 1984 team was determined not to be outdone.

    Tuesday afternoon the sunburnt team arrived at the Mets' training camp, Payson Complex, looking to be awed, and found reason as they watched batting practice. Coach Helman's biggest headache was to decide between two talented short-stops running neck and neck. As fate would have it one missed the van to the game, arriving late, and Keith Shulz got the nod. Batting second, Shulz c.rushed a fastball, sending it 400 feet for a triple to dead center, and the spell was broken. In the field Schulz made diving stabs, and threw runners out from the hole. Pitcher Jeff Opitz finished debunking the myth as he struck out seven in six inn-ings, hreaking off curve balls and sliders while throwing into a strong wind.

    Catcher Jack Hanna's two-run single and Mark Bryant's home run had Metro ahead 5-2 in Opitz's last inning of work, when he came face to face with the Mets' Jeff Karr. It was a pitcher from Englewood H.S. facing Cherry Creek graduate Karr once again, a guy who had that dream ..:contract, a chance with the pro club. There were two in scoring position with two out, the tying run at the plate when Karr reached out and smashed a line driv~ that third baseman Mark Bryant caught.

    The Metro bench was alive with encouragement as the 5-2 lead held up over the pros with bionic arms. power and speed that forced bad throws from the infield. The Mets were silent; they were playing as much against each other- for jobs- as against Metro. It was a stun-ning victory for Metro. _

    Chalk one up for teamwork, and the intangiples that give David the edge over Goliath. Former major league manager George Bamberger noticed and praised Schulz's and Bryant's glove work and Opitz's pit- ching, but there would be no miracle signings on this trio. .

    The next two days Metro outplayed -the Mets but lost 6-4, and did the same in a 5-5 tie against a more talented Phillies team, but lost both victories on throwing errors.

    Against a Dominican sinker ball pitcher on the heavily Hispanic

    Pirates, Metro finally suffered a clear loss, 5-2. But Branch Rickey, Pirates Farm Director, and grandson of the man who revolutionized baseball by introducing spring training and in-tegrating the game, made ,his way over to the Metro bench to talk to reliever Larry Chamberlain and tell him, "I wish _our pitchers would throw the changeup like you do."

    In the end we found that many Metro ballplayers were more ac-complished and had better instincts than many of the pros chosen for oustanding arms and/or speed-with the belief that the rest of the game can be taught.

    And I think I will argue the next time anyone says baseball isn't a team game; teamwork was truly an edge down to the last man. The. players who dreamed as they swung that they had big league names sewn on their chest missed; the guys who stayed within themselves, who were not necessarily the team's big guns, caught the notice. however fleeting-ly, of the big league brain trust.

    And while the Metro Roadrunners once again proved the wisdom of baseball's "old perfesser" Casey Stengel, who said, "Most ball games are lost, not won," I came home thinking more about the words of Walt Whitman: "I see great things in baseball. It's our game- the American game. It will take people out of doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us." O
