Field Hockey Takes East Coast Swing
Boston sports history is filled with hall of fame athletes and championships. Images of Bobby Orr and Ray Bourque skating up and down the ice at the Boston Garden. Bill Russell, Bob Cousy and Larry Bird running on the parquet floor winning 16 NBA championships. Nomar Garciaparra and the Red Sox attempting to capture a forbidden World Series Championship at ancient Fenway Park.

Looking Downfield
The difference between the spindly, wide-eyed 18-year-old who arrived on Illinois' campus in 1998 and the gunslinging, touchdown-tossing All-Everything candidate who's thrown for six scores this season has nothing to do with talent, arm strength or confidence.

Editorial: Holmoe Upholding Academic Integrity
By securing the services of Cal head football coach Tom Holmoe for one more year, UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Berdahl has cut against the grain of college football. For that, he deserves to be applauded.

New Bear's Lair By Students, For Students
Tuesday's Daily Californian editorial impugned the ASUC and the ASUC Auxiliary for a lack of communication and disorganization with regard to The Bear's Lair renovations ("Who Let The Bear Out Of The Lair?," Sept. 12). Nothing could be further from the truth. The simple fact is that both the ASUC and the auxiliary are in accord. 

Tradition Does Not Justify Humiliation
Sitting in the student rooting section of the football stadium before the game against Utah began, I witnessed a chilling case of mob senselessness at its worst. Unfamiliar with student rooting behavior, an international student sitting two rows in front of me had committed the cardinal sin of wearing a red shirt into the area. Simply in the name of brainless tradition, this girl (as well as a number of others who also had not been told of Cal etiquette) was subject to the embarrassment of relentless taunts of "take off that red shirt" from a section of the bay standing near her.

Campus Staff Should Not Be Forgotten
Monday's issue featured a front page story that detailed the adverse impact the construction at Barrows Hall is having on faculty and students ("Renovation Rattles Barrows," Sept. 11). What about the staff? Staff spend more time per day, everyday, in campus buildings than any faculty member or student.

Letters to the Editor: Let Us Eat Steak
Apropos your Sept. 8 front page story, the protesters from the Berkeley City Council and Rent Board along with a few student activists seem to have been implying that landlords ought not to eat anything more costly than Ramen noodles ("Tenants Rally Against Landlord Lawsuit," Sept. 8). That is exactly what Berkeley city government has been trying to reduce us to for the last 20 years. Flavored noodles is what Berkeley considers an apt reward for providing more than half of our city's residents with a place to live.
