Senate passes
aid amendment

By Joe Dobner
Stuff. ll ’rim'

By a vote of 84—4. the LIS.
Senate voted to approve an
amendment to the Departments
of Labor. Health and Human
Services and Education. and
Related Agencies Appropriations
Act of l‘NX.

The amendment in question.
S. I006. includes 53“ million in
funding for State Student Incen—
tive Grants (SSlG) for fiscal year
1998. It was sponsored by sena-
tors jack Reed (D—R.I.) and
Susan Collins (R-i\ld.).

This is good news for college
and graduate students.

“Considering that TAs and
RAs at UK make 10 to 11 thou—
sand a year and don't have health
insurance. anything that the fed—
eral government is willing to do
we're thankful for," said graduate
student Sen. Mike 'l‘omblyn.

“The State Student incentive
Grant program assists states in
providing grants to eligible stu—
dents who attend institutions of
higher learning and have sub—
stantial financial need." accord—
ing to the Department of l‘iduca-
tion’s web site.

six largest federal aid programs.
according to the National :\ssoci—

Congress has allocated a total
of $8.6 billion for student loans
this year. _

L'nlike other programs such as
Fe“ (irants and Perkins Loans,
SSK} does not go directly to stu-
dents from the federal govern-
ment, so many students have
never heard of it. SSKS funds all
go toward student financial aid.

“SSIC is critical to higher
education, critical to the dreams
of more than 700,000 students
across the nation and 13.000 stu—
dents just in my home state of
Rhode Island." Reed said.

SSIU monies are distributed
as matching funds to each state.
That is. the department of l‘idu-
cation distributes the funds to the
states according to the ratio of
students eligible to participate in
state SSl(i programs to the stu—

I/Vatermelon Bust

By Kristin Hall

\\'hen attending the \Vater—

you a small but crucial piece of

“Just don‘t wear any clothes
that you like!"

At the annual \Vatermelon
Bust at ELF. (ioodbarn Field on
Friday, sorority members and
their fraternity coaches got a little
muddy during a few relay races

and a tug-of—war.‘

Once the competitions began,
students quickly discovered the
reason for the warning.

Students were already covered
frotn head to toe in mud because
of many visits to “The Pit." a
slo py mixture of watermelon
ant mud in the middle of the

“The pit" could easily be called
the focal point ofthe “'atermelon
Bust. for if a person didn‘t willing-
ly jump into it. one of his or her



sorority sisters or the fraternity
members eventually threw them

Behind the pit. tables were set
out in a Circle and loaded in slices
of watermelon for the relay.

Despite these new mud
makeovers. the girls who attended
seemed to show a lot of spirit.

As the number of people
increased. so did the noise level.
Sororities held banners with
messages such as “Kappa‘s (iot
Melons" and “juicy. \Vet and

The girls screamed call—and-

The competition turned into
who was the loudest. rather than
who actually won the relay races.

l'iventually. the members of the

t s not the size of the ship..

Whenever you go to see a
concert there are basically two
types: the stnall intimate club
show and the large sprawling sta-
diuln show.

Each one has its own unique
advantages and disadvantages.
The stadium show allows
many more people to get
111 11nd see the more popu~
l1r acts. while club shows
allow for the audience to
much closer to the
action on stage.

Only a complete and total idiot

This grand demarcation tnakes
it easy to ensure you don’t

This is one advantage sta~
diutn shows have over club
shows, and while it may
seem inconsequential, it is
very important.

\\'hen the lCl’ took the stage.
the audience immediately crowds
ed up against the stage 11nd pre-
pared for one of the best spectacle
shows on the face ofthe planet.

The small venue was perfect
for the two rappers from South—
west Detroit There w as no barri~
c 1de to keep the rabid fans away
from the stage so they would
often climb up onto the stage and

dive off. into the waiting arms of

the audience.

a good— looking female that graced
the stage. Se\er1| times through-
out the evening the l( P would lift
up the shirts of the nubile girls
giving the crowd a generous saili—
pling of bare breasts.

The small confines of the

dearly. lhe moshing was abso»
lutely cralv as thousinds of fans
tried to push and shove their way
to the stage.

\\'hile stage diving was the
norm at the (iaragc. crowd surfing
was the preferred activity at 3i 1.
There were several times that
unsuspecting fans found someone
crashing down on their head.

There w as also .1 lot more pot
smoking going on at the large out—
door venue despite the fact that
there was .1 large. visible police

The actual performance by i] 1
left something to be desired I
thought though. They are amuch
better studio hand than they are 1
li\e band.

The opposite can be said for
(ioldtinger though. They gave the
tnost intense hour ofmusic l have
ever witnessed. lt really is too bad
that they were only the opening

So the two shows were vastly
different and tailored perfectly for
their venues. Seeing a show In .1
small venue is best because of the
much reduced health risks.
