Golfers Take First In Oregon
There's something about Oregon and the Cal women's golf team.

Polo Gets Weekend Wake-up Call
Sometimes a team simply doesn't play well. Sometimes every bounce of the ball seems to favor the other team. But it's when both of these happen together that it becomes tragic.

Berkeley City Council Is A Nuclear Weak Zone
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is clearly in violation of the Nuclear Free Berkeley Act ("Nuclear Free City or Not?" Aug. 31). LBNL's protestations to the contrary are nothing more then lies told by a guilty party who has been caught.

Students Unified By 'Red Shirt' Cheer
An attempt at a commentary on Lan Danwen's "Tradition Does Not Justify Humiliation" (Sept. 14) proves to be nearly impossible. Obviously Danwen is one of the smartest students here at Cal as can be observed by the immensely clever "cardinal sin" pun. We will still, however, attempt to explain our point of view on the matter.

Letters To The Editor: University Should Annex Theater
The university should consider aquiring or leasing the UC Theatre should the current management have to stop operations due to the theater's need for retrofitting ("Historical UC Theatre in Jeopardy," Sept. 18). Although I hope the theater survives its current problems, it is unlikely that any private agency that could afford to upgrade the space would serve the community in the manner of the current UC Theatre in case it has to close. The space would be an ideal site for the now displaced Pacific Film Archive.
