Gettin' Jiggy With It!
Q: I read your article in the paper and I had some questions. 1) Do you suggest laying a blanket down on top of the bed before a guy goes down on a girl because of the liquids she will produce? 2) Should you ask her if she is enjoying herself during the experience? 3) How much liquid will she produce and should you keep spilling it upon her legs and such? 4) Most importantly! Generally speaking, will all of the tactics you suggested make a girl have an orgasm? If not, what other suggestions do you have that don't require real sex?

ASUC May Bypass Funding Process
After a $6,000 ASUC Senate recreational funding request was tabled last week, the executive vice president said that if the bill does not pass, he will fund the program from his own money and seek funding for his other projects from the senate later this year in compensation.

To say that yesterday's Cal field hockey game was anticlimactic would be a vast understatement. Not only were the Bears coming off a thrilling 4-0 defeat of St. Louis the previous day, but Sunday's win also gave Cal its second consecutive league championship.

ASUC Executive Vice President Alex Ding's plan to fund an ASUC Senate bill's request, before the senate votes on the matter, with his office's funds, while expecting the senate to foot the bill for his office's financial needs is not only a gross violation of the authority vested in his position, but also a move of complete disrespect to the purpose of an elected body formed to represent the students of this university.

Abortion Accepted Without Question
There are a number of problems with the abortion pill, the clearest one being its purpose to kill innocent people ("Abortion Pill Should Be Made Available," Oct. 5).

Palestinian Peace: True Apartheid
The article by Joseph Anderson "Zionist Claim To Israel: Modern Day Apartheid" (Oct. 12) contains misinformation concerning the current situation between Israel and the Palestinians and attempts to equate modern zionism with apartheid. Anderson clearly has no historical or personal knowledge of the real situation in the Middle East.

UC Berkeley Is Lawful In Rape Stats
I am concerned by the Daily Californian editorial "UC System Must Report Sexual Assaults Accurately" (Oct. 12). There were some serious inaccuracies in the Sacramento Bee articles that appear to have come through in the editorial.
