Belovarac was activated
to
his posi-tion as a U.S. Naval Reserve intelligenceofficer.Belovarac reported to
the
Fleet Intelli-gence Center in Norfolk, Va., on Tues-day,Jan.22. "I don't
know how long
I'llbe gone," he said. "The initial order isfor
21
days,
which
is the quickest way toprocess my orders, but it could be ex-tendedindefinitely.
This is someth ing

and am
trained
to do.
It'san honor to be
asked
[to
serve
in

capacity as they pull specific people, notunits, into action."
t
Belovarac doesn't
want people
to
over-

his
situation.
He said
it* s proba-bly easier for him to go, because he'sfairly certain he'll not,

«T.
has yet to be realized.{Martin Luther King, Jr. wasshot down on March 4, 1968 inMemphis, TN. at the pinnacle ofhis
career as
minister
and
civil rightsleader. King's well-known 'dream'was to one day see a world whereall people are judged, not by thecolor of theirskin,
but
by
who they
are.Many students, teachers andmembers of the community par-ticipated

and

'There is a

Reflections show that bad days aren't so bad
To the EditorOver the holidays while bat-tling
the
insane mall traffic, I real-ized how self centered
we can
be.
I am
as guilty
of
a certain
"tunnel
vision" view of life as the next
person.
I
sometimes separate
myselffrom
the "big
picture'
*
and tend tofocus on
issues on
the basis of howthey will affect me.There
are *
moments when Ilook at my reflection in the mirrorand
wish
I was
 five
 pounds lighterand two inches taller. Or I wish Icould find a "freckles be gone"lotion.I sometimes envv those who
are able
to spend money
with
reck-less abandon.
I
get rustratedwhenI don't excel in athletics. Or Icomplain that I need a nicer car.What sobers me up
 from
heseinsignificant desires is
the
fact thatsomeone has it much worse than Icould even fathom.I think about the people whohave lost their Clegs and sight Ithink about those who have losttheir families due
to
a catastrophicevent I think about
the
families inGermany
that have
lost their
obs
inthe
process
of unification and pur-suit of a stable
democracy.
I thinkabout
the
many blacks
 fighting
orequality in South Africa; and ofcourse, I think about
the**young
Americans
who
are
 fighting
n theSaudi Desert with the strong possi-bility of losing their lives. The listis infinite
and much
more complex.But I can still run everyday. Ihave my health. I'm educated. Ican afford to eat I don't
live
in asuppressed society. In fact, I'mextremely fortunate.
So the next time you think
you'rehaving
a bad
day because
you
can' topen your
 frozen
 car door....thinktwice.

Students discouraged over Rec Center use
To the Editor.
I am
writing
to
you to
bring
outinto the open an injustice that hasbeen done to the student body ofour college. It started about threeweeks
ago when I
trudged throughthe snow to play basketball at thenew Recreation
Center.
My
thoughts
were on
finally getting some exer-cise to wear off the ten poundsgained throughout the
Christmas
break.
But when
I
opened
the
door^
I found
the
gym
was
occupied bythe Softball
team at 6
p.m.
I
thoughtto
myself,
as did the other sevenpeople, "Isn't this our facility ?"
This
scenario
was
repeated at leastthree times throughout January.I felt horrible about the lack ofgym use. For me, as the case with
many
other students,
the gym
is theone place
I
go where
I can get away
from everything.
So
I began
to
askaround
to see if
others
felt
the same.I found that I
was
not alone. WhenI asked Mark Azar how he felt, he
said,
"This
isbull*#%@, I haven'tbeen able to come over here andget on the floor yet" As for theothers I have asked, the responsewas the same,

thathe was told the Recreation Cen-ter s primary use was, For

Asidefrom these games,

Thisis excluding Fridays for obviousreasons. It seems like five or sixhours is
sufficient,
but these hoursare around five

historical claims,but
more likely
toward an increaseof power.
Let
me repeat that power.What was Hitler trying to accom-plish when he overtook smallercountries around him? The samething.
I can
only wish world lead-ers in the late
1930's
had had half
the*presence
of mind the world
leaders
of
today have in
putting anend to this snowball effect, beforeit gets out of hand, a lot of livescould
have
been
saved.
You see,
this
must be stopped,
and
time was given to achieve apeaceful solution. That time isnow over, and it
is
the will of theworld
-
at
 feast
he
free world
- thatthese
savages
be
put
in
their placebefore it is too late. Evidence hasled many to believe that the peopleof
Kuwait,
women and childrenincluded, have been tortured, andendlessly
harassed
since the takeover.

And so witn this in mind, onbehalf of
over
80 percent of theAmerican people,
I ask
