Abcug Scholarship Raises $25,000

Students Stress Continuation of Victim's Memory on Campus

By SUZANNE HOFFER

In less than a month since its inception, the Jeremy Mark Abcug '97 Scholarship has raised close to $25,000, Dan Mansoor, senior vice president of development and alumni relations, said.

Mansoor said the scholarship was set up by the Abcug family shortly after their son's death in a car accident on Nov. 12, 1993.

Friends said Abcug had come to

love the university and that the family wished to ensure the continuation of his name and memory within the Brandeis community.

Though the specific criteria of the scholarship's recipient have not been said, it has been decided that it will be a humanitarian scholarship. "The recipient will embody the qualities of Jeremy Mark Abcug," Mansoor said

Aside from the donations sent in by relatives and friends of the family, Julie Kopkin '94, Mery Borg '94 and David Henner '96 have headed the fund-raising efforts among the student body.

On Nov. 18, Nov. 19 and Nov. 22, they staffed a table in the Usdan Student Center upper lobby to raise money for the scholarship. *Julie and Mery got Please see Abcug. page 23

To show support for the concerns of Latino students at Cornell University, Ahora, the Brandeis University Hispanic student organization, is sponsoring a letter-writing campaign directed to Cornell.

On Nov. 19, 1993, Latino students held a demonstration, and occupied an administration building.

Executive Senator Beto Pallares '95 said the Cornell students were protesting what they believed was the president's insensitive handling of the vandalism of outdoor artwork by the Latino artist Daniel Martinez.

Ahora's plan is for the campaign to be an opportunity for students to let the administration at Cornell know that outside students are interested in the events that unfold at the Ithaca, N.Y. campus.

"We don't want them to set a precedent with this," Pallares, who is also a member of Ahora and took part in writing the letter, said.

Events leading up to the building occupation began soon after an artwork by Martinez, portraying the obstacle that racism presents, was erected on ihe central quad at Cornell, Pallares said.

The display was vandalized and defaced, including graffiti that said "kill the illegals" and drawn swastika, he said.

But the vandalism was only the "last straw" in response to a scries of disappointing responses to issues that concerned the Hispanic students there, Pallares said.

The stated goals of the students include an increase in Latino faculty and expansion of Latino- related curriculum. Other demands include Latino cultural center, more tenured Latino professors, a Latino psychology counselor for the Hispanic student-population, and a time period to raise awareness of Hispanic culture, sch(X)l officials said.

Pallares said Ahora's effort is part of a larger one taking place nation-wide, including the East Coast Chicano Forum, to which Brandeis belongs. "We know that if the students here protested, that they would support us," he said, explaining one reason for the involvement.

"1 definitely want to help and let (Cornell) know that we're watching," Monica Ortiz '96. a member of Ahora who was helping with the letter-writing campaign, said. She added she was part- icularly alarmed by Cornell's recent ending of need-blind admissions.

"1 feel that as long as you can do something to raise awareness ... with the little problems, that's where you can work things out," Ailyn Raifer '95, an international student from Costa Rica. said. "You can maybe solve something bigger like racism or dis- cnmination," she added.

Students expressed interest in the

letter-writing campaign as an

important issue that does not just

concern Latino students.

Thier Altman to Teach Police-Student Relations Take First Step

Course on Health Care

Student Senators Undertake Survey, Bicycle Patrol Finances

By JEREMY MARKOWITZ

President Samuel O. Thier, M.D. and Professor Stuart Altman will teach a course next semester entitled, "American Health Care: A System in Crisis."

"This course will examine and critically analyze the U.S. health care system, emphasizing the major trends and issues which have led to the current crisis," John Hose, executive assistant to the president, said. "In addition to providing a historical perspective, the course will establish a context for analyzing the current, varied approaches to health care reform." he said.

Thier, former president of the Institute of Medicine of the

National Academy of Sciences, met with President Clinton several months ago with other physicians and university presidents to discuss the national health care plan.

Altman, the Sol C. Chaikin Professor of National Health Policy, attended the joint session of Congress where Clinton revealed his plan. He advised the Clinton transition team on national health care earlier in the year and has held senior level health-policy positions in three presidential admin- istrations. He currently chairs the federal Prospective Payment Assessment Commission, which oversees reform of the Medicare hospital payment system.

A proposal for partial senate funding of bicycle patrols and a forum on student-police relations held last Tuesday evening were two efforts of the senate last week in its on-going projects to improve campus safety.

As part of his Student Senate project to improve relations between students and campus police. Executive Senf^or Beto Pallares '95 organized the lorum, at which public safety officers discussed student requests for allowing Mace on campus and an assessment of the school's towing policy, as well as the bicycle patrols.

"I think it went well," Pallares said. "There weren't that many students in attendance, but usually the ones who have a big stake in things arc the ones who attend."

"(The officers) were very cooperative," Pallares said. "There were four in attendance, one who was on duty."

"I think the police try to reach out to (the students)." Edward Callahan, associate director of public safety, said at the forum. "There's an apathy out there. There's a lot of misconceptions about the police."

David A. Turner '95 Elected EIC

The leadership of the Justice, the independent student newspaper of Brandeis University, was handed over following Wednesday's election of David A.Tumer '95 as the new editor-in-chief of the newspaper.

Turner garnered more than the required two-thirds of the votes cast by the Justice staff and editorial board members present at the election Thursday cvenmg.

Turner's selection was confirmed later that night by the editorial board, as a majority of that body approved of his appointment in a mandated confirmation vote.

Turner replaces Howard Jeruchimowil/. '94, whose term as editor-in-chief was to end this week.

•'I think that we're already one of the strongest undergraduate newspapers in the United States," Turner said. "I hope to preside over a growth in technology, ability and spirit at the Justice. Carrying on the high level of quality Howard maintained at the paper is a daunting task, but I feel we as a board and as staff are up to it."

Turner started working at the Justice in September 1991. joining the news staff. He served

as the senate reporter and news assistant before being appointed news editor in December 1991, a position he held until the end of last month.

His Justice career closely paralleled that of Jeruchimowit/, as he too, came up through the ranks of the news section.

Jeruchimowit/ started as a news writer and became senate reporter in the fall of 1990. He subsequently became the news assistant and was named news editor in December 1991. He was elected cditor-in-chief in December 1992.

"Afier working two-and-a-half years with Dave. 1 confidently believe he will carry on the tradition and mission that the Justice has built on tor the past 45 years," Jeruchimowit/ said, i was proud to serve with my fellow editors, staff writers and photographers to produce a proud product for the Brandeis community. I hope that the Justice's readers recogni/e the vast improvements the paper has made in the last year. Under Dave, those improvements will continue," Jeruchimowitz added.

Jeruchimowit/ will continue to serve the Justice as its senior editor, a post to which he was elected Sunday evening.

"I'm sitting here, and I'm seeing her handwriting all around me. I can't believe that she's not going to come back," Rina Nydahl, Mrs. GoUan's administrative assistant,

Dominic Thomas '94 ami Ben Resnick '94 recycle newspapers as part of the Brandeis University Recycling Program (BURP!). BURP! celebrates its third anniversary at Brandeis this sveek.

By JUDAH FIERSTEIN

This week marks the third anniversary of the Brandeis University Recycling Program (BURP!). The program is an entirely student-run organization which provides for most campus recycling, organizers said.

Founded in the fall of 1990, BURP! has expanded rapidly and become a strong and highly visible organization on campus, Dominic Thomas '94, who founded the program with Josh Klainberg '94, said. While numerous student recycling piograms have been attempted

since the university's inception, none have achieved the success or longevity that BURP! now celebrates, Thomas added.

When current BURP! co- coordinators Thomas and Ben Resnick '94 arrived at Brandeis, no focused recycling program existed at the school. "There was no one to complain to (about recycling)," Thomas said.

With 62 student volunteers, a special golf cart and over 50 blue collection bins around campus, BURP! managed to introduce recycling into most areas of campus, Thomas said.

Its main function is to recycle glass, plastic, aluminum, steel, bottles and cans in all the quads, as well as while paper collection in the mail room. Thomas explained. BURP! has a secondary '"watchdog" function in which It oversees other eftbrts on campus such as the recycling of white paper in the universitv offices and Styrofoam and plastic by dining ser\ ices, he added.

Thomas said he believes thai

BURP! has been accepted on

campus. "Now students rec\clc

and expect recycling." he said

IT MADE ME FEEL VERY STUPID.

But thanks to you, I don't feel like that anymore. Because you helped the United Way, a program that teaches English is helping me learn how to speak better and feel better about who I am and why I am here. We write essays, study history and talk about problems like discrimination. Some people will always believe I am dumb because of my accent. But thanks to you I don't believe it.

Gralla Speakers Discuss Media's Conflict over Presidential Activism

By EDWARD MILNER

President Bill Clinton has had to learn to deal with the Washington press, but his first year in oifice has been successful in outlining significant changes in the government, three speakers from the national media said in the year's second Gralla lecture Wednesday.

Eric Engberg, the Washington correspondent for CBS News, said Clinton has yet to prove himself capable of achieving what he wants in office. "He wants to be a big president, to do big things," Engberg said. But Clinton has not yet shown that he is ready to sway people and politicians, he added.

Sidney Blumenthal '73, the White House correspondent for the New Yorker, said the relationship between Clinton and the Washington press has been complicated by several issues, including a determined attempt by the Clinton administration to control the president's image at the start of his term, which clashed with the role that the media sees itself as playing in national politics.

"The press feels that Bill Clinton is an outsider, an interloper," Blumenthal said at the lecture, entitled "The Policy of Image-Making: Year One in the Clinton White House." He added that Washington has a "strange hierarchy" in which the media is on top, "It felt that Clinton was coming in and (he) had better learn how to deal with Washington which was their city, on their terms," Blumenthal said.

"(Clinton) was devoted to de- Icgitimi/ing the White House press, to disempowcring it very directly," Blumenthal said. "What he sought to do was to use the

new technologies to go around the press," Blumenthal added, citing several examples such as Clinton's appearances on talk shows. "The press took this in some way as a form of contempt.

George Stephanopolous as the White House communications director.

Thomas Friedman '76, White House correspondent for The New York Times, said he believes that

press. And when his substance got focused, energized and directed, he was able to pull together achievements, ... he got good press. And it isn't any more complicated than that,'! he added.

which it really was."

Blumenthal said the strain between the administration and the press resulted in such scandals as "Travelgate," when Clinton fired then rehired his travel staff, and "Hairgate," when Clinton received a $20() haircut at the Los Angeles International Airport. However, the relations were soothed with the appearance of David Gergen. who replaced

the importance of image-makers such as Gergen is over-rated, and that the relationship of the coverage to the administration is relatively simple.

"I'm a firm believer ... that ultimately it is substance and not spin, not image which defines you as a person and as a president," Friedman said.

"When Bill Clinton's substance was unfocused, .. he got bad

Friedman said the Clinton administration can be summed up in a set of four numbers: "43, zero, zero and infinity." The 43 represents the percentage of the electorate with whom he won the vote, he said. "The fact that he is a minority president (means that) he is constantly having to build coalitions," Friedman said. "'Zero' is discipline. This is an undisciplined president. '
