Stories from the January 28, 1999 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Lacking clarity – Staff editorial

In the latest instance of GW miscommunication, students who thought they had enrolled in classes held in the Academic Center realized at the beginning of the semester that the classes actually were scheduled for the Mount Vernon campus. Students must have found themselves in quite a predicament – how would they get from a class […]

Politics stops by the water’s edge

While I agree with some of the policy substance, I was quite disturbed by the implications of Brandon Wales’ op-ed “Save the Iraqi people, not Clinton’s presidency” (p. 5) in the Jan. 25 issue. He, like some Capitol Hill Republicans, had the audacity to suggest that the timing of President Clinton’s military operations is politically […]

Letters to the Editor

Simple solution While every student at GW is up in arms about juniors being forced to join the meal plan – and it is obvious the GW administration does not want to lose money that they would have made from meals – I can only see one clear solution: expand the MC Store. Changing the […]

GW basketball and Playstation make strange bedfellows

Being the editor of a college newspaper’s sports section has its perks. The biggest one, of course, is that I have a courtside seat at every basketball game. I can even be late and my seat is still there. If I get to the game early, it’s usually only so I can swipe a few […]

Iraq is problem for world, not just U.S.

Brandon Wales’ op-ed (“Save the Iraqi people, not Clinton’s presidency,” Jan. 25, p. 5) is full of misrepresentations of facts and fallacies in logic in terms of the current Iraqi situation. In terms of misrepresenting facts, saying Clinton “barely tolerates the continued presence of America’s armed forces” is ridiculous. Just last week Clinton called for […]

Youth leads Colonial gymnastics in 1999

The 1999 GW women’s gymnastics team could be summed up with one word – youth. Never have the team’s prospects rested so heavily on such young shoulders. Overall, five of the team’s 13 gymnasts are freshmen and six are sophomores. However, GW gymnastics head coach Margie Foster-Cunningham does not foresee the lack of experience causing […]

Staying separate – Staff editorial

Two GW students are trying to get the American Civil Liberties Union into their corner as they gear up for a battle with the University over its housing policies. The University prohibits cohabitation – opposite-sex roommates – in its residence halls. The two freshmen are against the policy and want to see it changed. While […]

PB scales down programs after $45,000 concert loss

Program Board members have begun to look for more inexpensive methods of programming this semester, after the organization lost $45,000 on the November Blues Traveler concert it planned, PB Executive Chair Brian Nathanson said. “We aren’t planning any more large-scale programs right now, but we are looking for alternate ways to program that are cheaper […]

GW teams to face floundering squads

The GW men’s basketball team takes on two teams at the Smith Center this weekend while the women hit the road for a pair of games. None of GW’s four opponents are playing their best basketball. The men host Duquesne at 7:30 p.m. Thursday before Fordham visits for Homecoming at 2 p.m. Sunday. The Dukes […]
