Air F orce
ROTC event
tradition filled

By Jessica Coy

:issisnmt Net's lid/tor

In a display of discipline that char—
acterizes Air Force ROTC, more than
80 cadets stood at attention as the
wind arid rain whipped at their faces
during the annual Air Force ROTC
parade 'l‘hursday.

l’estive parade music, the same used
for Air Force parades all over the
United States, blasted through speak—
ers set up on administration field as the
cadets tiioved through the series of
movements they have been practicing
all year.

Though the parade movements
might look random to the unpracticed
eye, (Zol. Steve Parker said the move-
ments date back to medieval times.

“Knights in armor performed
movements similar to the ones we will
perfortn today," Parker said. “The Air
Force is very steeped in tradition.”

Many of the students participating
in the parade are first-year cadets, and
it was their first chance to see the tra—
dition and discipline that go into mak-
ing a parade go smoothly, Park said.

In preparation for the parade, stu-
dents practiced drills on a weekly basis
the entire semester.

“The parade is a practice in disci—
pline," said ()livia Duer, a junior and
member of the public affairs cadet
office. “The cadets have been practic-
ing for this all year and had to undergo
an inspection before hand which

The parade is meant not only to
prepare the cadets for the parades they
will participate iii after graduation as
members of the Air Force, but also to
give them a chance to recogni/e out-
standing cadets.

u'l‘raditional Air Force parades are
designed to recognize star performers
and to boost moral," Parker said.

l‘iach class was represented iii the
parade. and one cadet was reeogiiiled
from each as the cadet of the month
for March.

“The cadets of the month are stu—
dents who go the extra mile and excel

“I wasn't really surprised," lloff—

Study: Non-tenure t

By Lisa M. Rooolman
Cavalier Daily (U. Virginia)

As colleges and universities nation-
wide face growin concerns about a
rising number of students coupled
with a decreasing supply of tenured
faculty, some Virginia faculty mem-
bers are questioning the importance
of tenure.

Last week, Education School Prof.

Jay L. (Ihronister and \Villiam and
Mary Education l’rof. Roger (i. Bald-
win completed a two-year project, col-
lecting data and examining the
increasing nationwide trend of noti-
tenure-track faculty.

According to the study, a non-
tenure track is becoming more popular
as faculty express a desire to teach as
opposed to spending a large portion of
their time doin research.

“\\'ith all olgthe flack tenure is get-

ask otten

ting, a lot of faculty members are ques-
tioning, why tenure?" (Ihronister said.
“This is a change iii higher education."

(Ihronister said tenure is an
appointment with an unlimited term,
while a non-tenured teaching posi—
tion usually is held by a contract
delineating the length of the teach-
er's term -—~ “an end that has to be

But Ramazani said the Virginia's
reputation depends largely on faculty
research. Altiiost all faculty members
hired by the L'niversity are on tenure-

say they are confident they'll pass tough anti-
tobacco legislation by the end of this year.

“\Ve will get bipartisan legislation this year,"
Health and Human Services Secretary Donna
Shalala declared on Sunday. “’l‘lierc's no question
about it because it‘s about public health."

Major tobacco companies last week aiiiiotiticed
they would not go along with tobacco legislation
being debated in (Iongress, saying the original
goal of reducing teen smoking had been subverted
into a money grab that would drive the industry
into bankruptcy. .

lndustry leaders stressed Sunday that they would
unleash their huge lobbying power to stop the legis-
latioti and would go to court to challenge provisions
that limit advertising of tobacco products atid
require companies to pay billions in penalties ifteen
smoking reduction goals aren't met.

Band hits marlin a Subaru?

By Jay D. Vosltuiil

(."mirriltuilrig H ’rr'rrr

The “’rocldage became a juice
bar and then, like a beacon through
the bar room smoke, a storage
facility became the 37 (Ienter.

This is the evolution of the
rock venue in Lexington. But
don't tell Portland‘s, Kissing
Book, who returned to Lexington
'I‘hursday night to play the 37
Center. As far as the band knows,
area shows have always taken
place in empty storage spaces.
Their first time through last fall
found them setting up in a base-

Kissing Book is refreshingly
simple. Thursday night‘s incarna-
tion included just two pieces —
ruitar and drums. if Kissing Book
had a bass player, it would just
mean less space for the two band

members in their Subaru.

Their music, like their touring
wagon, is incredibly compact. A l
uniform in structure, Kissing
Book's short songs, stacked nicely
and effortlessly, helped assemble a
fun, early—'60s inspired set oftra—
ditional pop.

The crowd was sparse. Before
the start of the show
guitarist/vocalist Andrew K. invit—
ed the entire audience to join him
on the scrap of carpet (37 (lenter‘s
equivalent ofa stage) that differen—
tiates the band from the audience.

Much to his surprise, the crowd
obliged. Andrew and drummer
Mike K. seemed to feed off the
newfound intimacy and their
crisply-crafted pop thrived.

The songs are all upbeat and uti—
lize the standard “La. La, La" hack—
ing vocal.

FUCKER UP The Portland band Kissing Book mole its minimal/rt. run—piece
pop art to the 3 7 Center Thursday night.

Motown's wall of sound record-3
ings, where a single tambourine:
would often bury the entire kit.j
His hit-the-cymbal-harder-than—3
the-snare approach barely nudged-
Andrew's swift songs along. :

“I like to be on the floor (with
the audience)," Andrew said after-j
ward. “I like to dance."

His dancing nearly stole the
show. \\'ith feet to ether and a
pre-vpubescent hem ine exposin T
his ankles. Andrew twisteg
straight out of the school of hol—
low body hung high.

Kissing Book has existed in one
form or another since the fall of
1996. Andrew’s brief stint at Mid-
dle Tennessee State University, a
reputed music industry school just
outside of Nashville, Tenn”
soured him on college and
encouraged him to leave.

“i realized that everyone was
there to o to school and not
there to find a hand then uit
school," he said. “i quit schoo to
try and find a band."

it was back on the West Coast
that Andrew found Mike. The two
have been on tour since March.

Kissing Book considers itself a
legitimate result of pop’s lon
legacy, tracing its influences back
to early Beach Boys, Sam and
Dave and the Kinks. Even early
punk contributed to Kissin
Book‘s existence, if not in sountf
then in spirit. Along with like-
minded bands Of Montreal and
the Minders. it couples a positive
punk mentality with a more gentle
pop music.

Kissing Book appears on a vari—
ous artists compilation by Portland
label Magic Marker. it also shares
an independently-released seven
inch, split with friends Glossary.

The band is devoted to touring
and Andrew admits he doesn't do
much else. Back home in Portland
he says they play the occasional
all—ages show but complains,
“There’s so many bands there."

\thn finally asked what hap-
pened to the bass player, Andrew
snorted, “()h, he quit," then calm-
ly stated, “I hope we can find
someone to fit in."

He meant, of course, both
musically and physically, as space
is at a premium inside the Subaru.

Bad movies never really die. they just

actually better than the original.

The story opens like something out of
