Cal Battles Woeful History Against Devils And Wildcats

Despite losing to No. 4 Washington in three straight games last weekend, the Cal volleyball team somehow moved up one notch in the polls. With a little help from No. 22 Missouri, who defeated then-No. 5 Texas, 3-0 on Sept. 23, the Bears moved from the No. 8 spot to No. 7 in the coaches' poll.

Bears Warm-up for Conference Schedule against Lancers

Editorial
“The Coming Crisis”?

No one should have been worried by a recent study claiming UC Berkeley was among the worst in a sample of 50 schools in the country for teaching students basic U.S. government. But they should be worried by some media outlets' irresponsible coverage of a study with suspect methodology.

Apology to Our Readers
The Daily Californian's Sept. 8 editorial on the campus recycling program, "Wasting an Opportunity", drew its conclusions based on information we now know to be incorrect. The correction to the news story ("Stadium Has no Recycling Program" Sept. 6), is on page 2. The editorial was not intended to mislead, and the Senior Editorial Board of the Daily Californian sincerely regrets the judgments.

Democracy Needs Youth
The majority of college students have those scary moments where they wonder what life will be like after college. However, I sincerely doubt most of them have any idea how bad it can truly get. Take, for example, the case of Luis.
