American engineers foregoing graduate school

The lure of $30,000-plus starting salaries
for students with bachelors degrees may
prevent American students from pursuing
advanced degrees in engineering, a UF en engineering

This means a large number of the gradu graduate

guaranteed by the state, is invested

UF seems to be part of a national trend.
A recent nationwide survey revealed that
only 43 percent of the 933 doctorates in
mathematics awarded in the United States
in 1989 went to Americans.
Bevis said American students probably
dont pursue advanced degrees in engineer engineering

bachelors degrees are so good.
And once students have left college and
started making money, Bevis said, its diffi difficult
cult difficult for them to return to school.

Grants entice
minorities into
education field
By ELIZABETH CLARKE
Alligator Writer
A nationwide minority-teacher shortage in public schools
has led two UP' education professors to lure minorities into
the teaching field with scholarships funded by nearly
$175,000 in grants. j
One professor, Paul Sindelar, received a $77,710 grant
from the U.S. Department of Education on Aug. 1. He said
the three-year, $233,130 grant will support eight or nine
future special-education teachers each year. Those special specialeducation
education specialeducation teachers will instruct students who face special
physical, intellectual or emotional challenges.
Professor Simon Johnson received a $97,000 Ford Foun Foundation
dation Foundation grant to work with Edward Waters College in
Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona
Beach to encourage minorities to become teachers.
Sindelar, chairman of the department of special educa education,
tion, education, said recruiting is necessary, because minorities need
more role models in schools.
Minority Student Affairs Dean Willie Robinson also said
the number of minority teachers should increase.
The population trends suggest that minorities will no

encourage more students to apply for grad graduate
uate graduate school, Drake said, by inviting students
from Florida colleges to visit UF and see
what the department has to offer them. The
mathematics department also offers a five fiveyear
year fiveyear masters program.
Bevis said that even though they may be
excellent in their fields, language can be a
problem for foreign students who teach and
conduct research.
Alex Cozzi, a third-year graduate student
in materials science engineering, agreed.
Cozzi said American graduate students often
are stuck with such tasks as teaching classes

But program Chairman Stanley
Tate, author of the bill, said only
$200,000 has been raised.
The foundation has until June
30 to raise the matching funds, but
Tate said getting an extension if
needed shouldnt be a problem.

About 3,000 students are involved in UF

someone is interested in the club, they more

They talked about families the

Kirkpatrick said he believes
professors need to show students
how their classes relate to life.
This is something he said Lytle
did and something he tries to do
now.
The teacher ought to show
how the subject relates to the rest
of the university, how it relates to
the outside world and how the

Kirkpatrick also teaches ENC

he said.

he said.

The 68-year-old
instructor enjoys

reminiscing about the days of his
youth, especially his days in the
Merchant Marine and the Navy.
As a boy, Kirkpatrick dreamed
of the sea. He often would find sea
shells in the mountains of his
native Arkansas.
His two older brothers had
been Merchant Marines, and he
was inspired to do the same.
Despite witnessing more than
20 ship sinkings each day in the
Gulf of Mexico during World War
11, he said the two years he spent
in the Merchant Marine were the
most peaceful hes ever known.
He later published a novel, The
Suns Gold, about his experiences
at sea.
Being at sea, all you have to
do is tend the ship, he said. And
you dont have the confusion, the
chaos of the shore, troubling your
life.
After his time in the Merchant
Marine, he became a Navy pilot,
working on carriers in the Pacific
Theater. He reasoned, (Working
in the Merchant Marine is) not a
good way to fight a war sitting
and letting people shoot at you.
Although not as peaceful, being

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10,1991, ALLIGATOR,

a Navy pilot was exciting and
often scary, he said.
Kirkpatrick was involved in
seven plane crashes. The first six
were not so difficult to get out of,
but the seventh spurred him to
quit flying, he said.
In times of stress, time always
got very elongated and I had all
the time in the world to make
decisions, he said. Then I had
an engine cut out and time didnt
get elongated, so I knew it was
time to stop flying.
Kirkpatrick was behind the war
effort back then, but said he has

Kirkpatricks life will change in
the future, especially because he
keeps vowing to retire.

Bush: War more and more a possibility

WASHINGTON (UPI)
President Bush said Wednes Wednesday
day Wednesday that Iraqs total stiff-arm
of American diplomatic efforts
leaves him with less of a feel feeling
ing feeling that the Persian Gulf crisis
can be resolved without a war.
This is one more example
that the Iraqi government is
not interested in direct com communications
munications communications designed to settle
the Persian Gulf crisis, Bush
told reporters shortly after
high-level talks in Geneva,
Switzerland ended without a
breakthrough in the 5-month 5-monthold
old 5-monthold standoff.
The conclusion is clear:

Saddam Hussein continues to
reject a diplomatic solution.
The president nonetheless
maintained that weve got to
keep trying after he spoke by
telephone to Secretary of State
James Baker, who reported
that there was no evidence
whatsoever that Iraq was will willing
ing willing to comply with the interna international
tional international communitys demand to
withdraw from Kuwait.
After declaring earlier that
Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq
Aziz had shown no flexibility
at the six-hour Geneva meeting

Bush continued to hold out
some hope that the crisis could
be resolved before the Jan. 15
deadline for Iraq to withdraw
or face force.
It isnt too late. But now, as
its been before, the choice of
peace or war is really Saddam
Husseins to make, he said.
Bush added later, I have
less of a feeling that he will
come around, but weve got to
keep trying.
Bush said he had made no
decision about going to war.
He characterized Aziz as a
forthright negotiator, but
wrong in his positions.

POSSIBLY MURDERED
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador
(UPI) Rebels acknowledged
Wednesday that rebel soldiers
may have murdered two of the
three U.S. servicemen whose
helicopter was downed last
week and promised to apply
their own war justice in the
case.
The Farabundo Marti Na National

said in a statement that two
members of the unit that shot
down the U.S. helicopter Jan. 2
were under military arrest.
There are sufficient ele elements
ments elements to presume that part of
the crew, in the condition of
wounded prisoners, could have
been murdered by one or sev several

unit, the statement said. Once
responsibility for the crimes has
been proven, the FMLN will act
with total rigor in accordance
with our norms of war justice,
the rebels said.
FMLN military justice pre previously
viously previously has included the death
sentence in cases where war
crimes were committed.
The rebels initially said all
three of the U.S. servicemen
died when the helicopter was
shot down. But eyewitness ac accounts

results revealed that two of the
servicemen survived the crash
and were later shot in the head

Bangladesh and the rest of the world.
Megarepha Micha, assistant director of

are being adequately met
Bhuiyan disagrees. He said UF should
provide the students with free immigration

From the front
Lets get UF sports news to any of the men and
women serving in the Persian Gulf who care about it.
That was the nifty idea that prompted members of the
Chattahoochee Valley, Ga. Gator Club a modest-sized
member of UFs network of alumni/supporter groups
to put a small notice in Stars & Stripes. The notice of offered
fered offered free videotaped football and basketball games and
copies of Gator Bait, the weekly tabloid covering UF
sports, to any military persofinel in the Gulf who wanted
it
They expected a dozen letters. Maybe 50. As of
Wednesday their stack reached 257, and the daily deliv delivery
ery delivery was averaging about 25. Apparently a lot of orange
and blue fans are wearing khaki these days.
Bob Zinn, one of the Chattahoochee Valley clubs 60
members, said his group has been overwhelmed both by
the volume of letters and the poignancy of their contents.
These guys are scared, Zinn, a furniture-store man manager
ager manager said. But theyre proud. Most of them are sitting
there waiting, and they dont know whats going to hap happen.
pen. happen. Theyre worried, and a lot of them really want to
read things that remind them of home. And they really
want people to write to them.
And these letters have been a blast to read, too.
Zinn said one soldier included a handful of Saudi sand
right inside the envelope. Another sent along a Pepsi in insignia
signia insignia printed in Arabic cut right from the can (Be care careful,
ful, careful, the soldier wrote, its real sharp!). One writer
requested a group letter from UFs cheerleaders, while a
fourth asked only for some Kool-Aid to make the local
water more bearable.
Another soldier, who apparently thought only real Ga Gator
tor Gator fans got the video offer, included a clipped photo of
gatorback Godfrey Myles and a UF logo with the ques question,
tion, question, Is this enough proof to sign me up?
Many of the writers are willing to skip on the videos,
asking instead that Zinn just hook them up with pen
pals. Zinn says his group still hopes to get the videos to
the folks that want them, despite the unexpected wave of
responses. My VCRs been going for days, Zinn said.
Finding enough people to fill the role of pen pal has
been even harder. If you are interested, mail a self-ad self-addressed
dressed self-addressed stamped envelope (All this postage is getting ex expensive,
pensive, expensive, Zinn said) to the Chattahoochee Valley Gator
Club, P.O. Box 42, Ellerslie, Ga., 31807. In a few days,
Zinn said youll get back one of the soldiers letters re requesting
questing requesting a response.
Zinn also said any other support for the project in
the form of money to help pay postage or care packages
and Gator memorabilia to pass on is greatly appreci appreciated.

of the paper to the soldiers. Regardless of your political
views on the Gulf situation, these men and women are

Dear Abby: If we go, can we stay?

Its become an article of faith in contemporary
America that no one can consider himself or herself
a truly knowledgeable and educated gentleperson with without
out without some interest in and knowledge of what we call
foreign affairs.
I dont know how or when this happened. Perhaps
it has always been thus. But it seems that it was once
considered a virtue to, as Dear Abby would say, Mind
Your Own Business.
What a quaint concept. It seems somehow fitting
for the free republic that the United States of America
was designed to be. It seems strangely out of place
almost heretical in these days of new waxing of the
American imperial impulse.
Mr. Bushs excursion into the Middle East is just
that. Whatever the eventual fate of the sector of land
that used to be ruled by the Emirate of Kuwait, rest
assured that an American military presence is there
to stay. The real goal behind this whole excursion is
almost certainly the establishment of permanent
American hegemony over the entire oil-producing
region of the Middle East. And dont think Bush has
been honest with the Saudi government about this
either. While they are happy to have America mind
some of their business (the protection of the oil profits
of the Saud family), they doubtlessly dont feel thrilled
about a permanent incursion of young military infidels
in their territory.
It matters not. The business of the American Empire
is business everybodys business. And, as most
every young man attending this university may soon
find out, its gonna be your business as well.
Do you care what government exacts tribute from
and issues commands to the people living in the land
area once called Kuwait? Are you aware of the history
of the region? Do you know the general level of
popularity of Saddam Hussein amongst the poor of the

region?
Do you feel vaguely guilty if you cant answer the
above questions?
Well, dont. Whats happening in Kuwait to many
of its residents is unquestionably a tragedy. All reports
indicate typical conquerors behavior on the part of
the Iraqi army rapes, tortures, mass murders.
Turning Kuwait and Iraq into a long-term war zone
using the (possibly conscripted) blood of Americans
who thought an Army was there to protect their nation,
not attempt to make the world a perfect place, will not
make that tragedy go away. It merely will compound
it with a new tragedy. And if the past history of
Americas foreign involvements is any indication,
theres little chance that the results of any Middle
Eastern war will be a happy, free, prosperous life for
all. (Look at Vietnam, the Philippines and the fate of
Eastern Europe from 1945-89.)
No, it shall almost certainly all be for naught.
Turning a blind eye to others misfortune is callous
and seems vaguely inhuman. However, it must be
recognized that no one and no nation can save
the world. And the attempt rarely turns into a happy
ending.
War is the health of the state. A too-healthy state
means a citizenry is in danger. Protecting the freedom
of Americans to not finance or fight in foreign wars is
certainly more important to the cause of freedom and
justice in the world than the restoration of the
unelected oligarchy of Kuwait.

1990 was hell, we all know it,
we're all glad it's over with, and
APPLAUSE is just happy to have
this opportunity to aim some
griping and insults in the gen general
eral general direction of various facets
of the entertainment world (TV,
movies and music). The fuji be begins
gins begins on page 4. Enjoy.
Now for the usual beginning
of the semester business: As al always,
ways, always, it's impossible for the few
of us whose names are in the
staff box to do this alone. (Well,
I guess it'd be possible, but the
results probably wouldn't be
anything anyone wanted to look
at and the resultant stress would
cause us all to turn to the nearest
Living Eck Master for support
and spiritual guidance.)
What I'm getting at is: Come
to us. Write for us, draw for us,
dream a little dream with us.
We' re located a 11105 W. U niver niversity
sity niversity Ave. across from the Barnett
Bank. Come inside and sit a spell
in the semi-legendary AP APPLAUSE
PLAUSE APPLAUSE couch (big enough and
lumpy enough to be the ru rumoured
moured rumoured final resting place of
Judge Crater and Amelia
Earhart). It's the perfect place to
begin a career in the exciting
world of entertainment journal journalism
ism journalism and cranky commentary.
We're open to any stories or
ideas you want to throw our
way.
And if getting down here is a
problem, call 376-4458 and ask
for Brian, Pat or Siobhan. And

The Worst of Movies 99
By MIKE BRUSCELL
It's hard to keep up that highbrow,
artsy-fartsy filmgoer's facade when
friends know you've seen ... yeah, him.
Darkman.
Bastard.
Sorry. But what a blemish on an oth otherwise
erwise otherwise superior movie year.
Some writers groused about the
movies' increasingly blatant product
endorsements. Days of Thunder spent
more time pitching Mello Yello than
H at
Bruscell didn 7 see John Travolta
in Look Who's Talking, Too, but
he would've hated it if he had.
drafting its Top Gun- on-wheels plot,
critics said. I didn't see the movie.
Others claimed movie creativity this
summer slid down its deepest hole yet,
exposing audiences to Hollywood's
raging sequel-itis. The media damned
studios with faint praise last summer,
dumping would-be blockbusters such
as Die Hard 2, Gremlins 2 and Robocop 2

Bruce Willis starred in Die Hard 11, another example of Hollywood's
rampant dependance on the sequel as a source of sure bucks.

1990: It's over, we're gla

into a bastard (that's two) genre of mus muscle-bound,
cle-bound, muscle-bound, no-think films with the pace
and plot of a roller coaster, and a ride
everybody wants seconds on. I didn't.
Most folks did. And because I didn't
see Thunder or any sequel except for The
Godfather Part 111, I can't dump too
much on these movies. They made
buttloads of cash, which means some somebody
body somebody liked them. Why begrudge audi audiences
ences audiences a good time, or filmmakers for
giving it to them?
Having seen Dances With Wolves,
Goodfellas, Mountains of the Moon, and
Last Exit To Brooklyn this year makes
such arrogance easier to muster. I'd
give each of these films four stars,
APPLAUSE'S highest rating.
Wolves and Goodfellas wowed the crit critics
ics critics anddid decent box-office. Along
with Godfather 111, they'll probably
sweep the Oscars.
But don't strain your eyes looking for
Moon and Exit next March. They'll
probably spend as much time being
honored as they spent in mqst major
theaters. (Hint: Don't blink).
It's the public's loss. Neither film got
much studio support, a bigger disgrace
for Moon financier, Carolco Pictures.
Although more aggressive advertising
wouldn't have catapulted Moon into the
same financial strata as Total Recall, Ar Arnold
nold Arnold Schwarzenegger's SIOO-million SIOO-millionplus
plus SIOO-millionplus sci-fi bloodbath (and another
Carolco picture), it might've gained it
more consideration in the Oscar race.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts
& Sciences sounds more prestigious
than it acts. Voting members don't see
every movie released, or even every
movie nominated, but rely a good deal
on word-of-mouth or advertising in
trade magazines such as Variety to
guide their decisions.
Not that awards add merit to a film.
Driving Miss Daisy sucks. But Oscars
revitalize commercially dead-in-the dead-in-thewater
water dead-in-thewater or slow-starting films, such as
Daisy, which still sucks.

The Worst of Music Trends

By PAT HUGHES
K
Originally I planned to use this space
to kick off the new year by lambasting
the increasing amount of retro-worship
happening in (ahem) "cutting-edge"
music. Trends in underground rock
tend to surface eventually in more
mainstream music, and a big trend of
late is that hard rock bands have been
incorporating a lot of '7os arena-metal
elements into their style.
Frequently this is being done by the
same people who got involved in the
whole music thing to begin with as a
reaction to the hair-shaking and boring
extended-guitar excess that all this re revivalism
vivalism revivalism entails. f
We've also seen guitar-oriented pop
bands using touches of light psychede psychedelia
lia psychedelia in songwriting, and dance music
flaunting beats and styles thought long
gone with the era of Studio 54. Even
rap, which frequently seems to be the
freshest (no pun intended) form of
mainstream pop is heading back to the
funkier Clintinesque days of yore.
Recycling is the hip cause at the mo moment
ment moment in more ways than onewhich,
in music, can be downright scary. I
mean, when do we create something
new ?
I swear I can remember a time when
tie-dye and peace symbols were
dumped onto the cultural trash pile, but
currently observing vastly different
segments of the population wearing
them makes my memory vague... all too
vague. Can horrible wide ties and plat-

WORST OF 9O: TV ORSSSMBSSStOSSBii9Sr

By MICHAEL GILTZ
The phrase "worst of the TV season"
is redundant, and the batch of new
shows from the three networks and
their smart-aleck little brother, Fox
has proven no exception. Not one series
has become a commercial or critical
success. Not one series deserved to. Not
Lifestories, the medical drama that
hoped to turn rectal examinations into
Nielson gold. Not Cop Rock, the musical
drama that broke into song, whether it
ought to or not. Not even Uncle Buck,
the sitcom that began with a small child
saying, "You suck."
That child should have been called
Cassandra, for the '9O TV season began
with all the top honchos trumpeting
risky shows and daring concepts. They
were goosed by the unlikely triumph of
Twin Peaks and the perceived encroach encroachment
ment encroachment of cable TV and VCRs. They prom promised
ised promised to take the high road
concept-wise, and stick with quality.
Unfortunately, none of the new
shows gave them anything worth stick sticking
ing sticking with. To be fair, network television
has achieved a certain level of compe competence.
tence. competence. It s fairly easy to find something

form shoes be far behind? Well, they're
not. Gander at some of the "latest" fash fashions
ions fashions in your save poser magazine. I'm
getting an anxiety attack just thinking
about it. But wait there is a flipside.
Dee-Lite are a lot of fun, taken at face
value. Big Daddy Kane's duet with '7os
comedian/proto-rapper Rudy Ray
Moore on Kane's latest album rules.
And legendary hardcore/metal/what hardcore/metal/whatever
ever hardcore/metal/whatever band Die Kreuzen have revitalized
their terribly tired sound on their new
single by covering three songs origi originally
nally originally recorded sometime around 1978,
give or take a year.
Heck, I've even been known to flip
my hair vigorously to the '7os deriva derivative
tive derivative Mudhoney, even though I'm kinda
ashamed of it. So, okay, it's fun to re remember,
member, remember, and we shouldn't lose sight of
the past, and there's nothing wrong
with "classic" influences, but where is
this all leading us? At the rate popular
culture is cannibalizing itself, we
should start seeing Duran Duran and
Frankie Goes to Hollywood clones in
about six months.
Do we really want this to happen? What
happens after that? Does the cycle start
again? Does something new happen?
Or does the Earth just wink out of ex existence?
istence? existence?
It'll most likely be heinous to observe,
whatever the outcome. Let's just pause
to remember how derivative every everything
thing everything is as we enjoy it, before every everything
thing everything we know becomes one big joke
that we've played on ourselves.
Forget it. It's too late.

All that was missing was imagina imagination.
tion. imagination. The three major networks and
their wacky next-door neighbor, Fox
turned to movies for help, which is a
little like Larry and Curly turning to
Moe. The result? Uncle Buck, Parenthood,
two adaptions of Ferris Day Off
and, coming in a month or so, Look
Who's Talking.
Os course, all these movies have one
thing in common: They seemed like
sitcoms to begin with. What networks
seem to forget is that most successful
spin-offs came from movies that didn t
appear likely candidates for a weekly
series, movies like M*A*S*H and Alice
Doesn't Live Here Anymore. (No, 1 don t
think Alice was a good series. But it was
successful.) If someone decided to take
a shot at adapting Do The Right Thingr
audiences might perk up. But Uncle
Buck?
Networks also turned to music for
help. The aforementioned Cop Rock was

his genre.
Hell, I feel kind of guilty even abusing
targets as gimpy as Hammer or the even
weaker Vanilla Ice. I thought
Hammer's use of sampling was lame
merely repeating one stolen hook over
and over again through an entire song.
But eager-to-please liar Vanilla Ice can't
even figure out how to rap over his

Who is that guy in the big, furry costume??

Editor's note: The following is a
syndicated exerpt from the New York
humor magazine Spy.
There are pitfalls to walking through
midtown Manhattan dressed as a giant
white rabbit. There's the heat, of
course, and the stares of pedestrians
who find it amusing to squeeze your
tail, pull on your ears and make bad
jokes about the sexual proclivity of
your kind. For any serious performer
in a large furry suit, such trials are the
cost of doing business.
But for some performers like
Rapid T. Rabbit there are no head headlines,
lines, headlines, no tossed flowers, no stadiums
full of cheering, beery yahoos. Rabbit
(Richard Concepcion) draws no salary
for producing and hosting his bi biweekly
weekly biweekly puppet show on a public-ac public-access
cess public-access cable-tele vision channel. He has
no health plan and no fan club. "Being
a giant rabbit," he said, shattering the
childhood fantasies of so many Ameri Americans,
cans, Americans, "is not always as great as it
sounds."
Why, then, does he do it? What com compels

ceremoniously put on 40 pounds of

It is, of course, American Kabuki

costumes. Could the Belgians or the
Russians have come up with "Muppet

Even in New York City, American
Kabuki performers are mostly treated
like royalty. The day gigantic Simp Simpsons

we dress up like this, we become like

"This is where you can really let go
and shine," said Benton. Like other
furry-costumed performers, Benton
emphasizes the importance of the
Method in preparing for a role. "You
have to study Bugs to become Bugs.
You can't just put on some feet and
ears and say, 'Here I am.' But after a
lot of practice, it all clicks. You actually
become the rabbit."
After theme-park employees, the
next level on the fur-person food chain
is that of contract performers in musi musical

where the worlds of high art and
floppy ears collide. These are pros.
"We're not mascots. We're trained
performers in costume," said John Cam Cameron,
eron, Cameron, a 27-year-old dancer from Long
Beach, Calif., who has been defining
and redefining Ernie in the touring
company of Sesame Street Live for 10
years.
About equal to Ernie and Bert in

the mascots of college sports teams.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 199 K

KGB asked a communications class at
San Diego State University if anyone
would be interested in part-time work
wearing a chicken suit and giving
away Easter eggs for a promotion at
the zoo. A student named Ted
Giannoulas raised his hand. Half a
dozen other students also raised their
hands, so Giannoulas' chances seemed
slim. But then, in a scene reminiscent
of the time Ruby Keeler went for the
star in 42nd Street, or the time Greg
Brady became Johnny Bravo,
Giannoulas got the part: He was the
only one who fit into the suit.
Things started badly, as the Chicken
wandered around the San Diego Zoo
to little fanfare, hanging his head and
staring forlornly at the big basket of
eggs he had to get rid of. After four
days he considered quitting, but then
somethings he doesn't know what
told him to take his eggs to a Padres
game. For some reason the Padres al allowed
lowed allowed the radio-station chicken onto
the field, and a star was born. The
Chicken pretended to urinate on the
umps. He slid into third base, and
then, as if some unearthly force were
moving his limbs, he backed up and
did it all in slow motion. The fans went
wild. The Chicken became the main
event.
Though this may sound like a fairy
tale, it's not an isolated incident. Dave
Raymond, who has been the Phillie
Phanatic for each of its 12 years on
Earth, also became an American Ka Kabuki
buki Kabuki artist by accident. The Phillies
had just received their first Phanatic
costume, and they were about to an announce
nounce announce open auditions to cast the fat
green beast. Then someone in the Phill Phillies
ies Phillies organization asked Raymond, a
gofer with no costume experience at
all, to try on the suit just for laughs.
Like Cinderella's glass slipper, the
Phanatic costume was a perfect fit. "It
was sort of like a gift from Heaven,"
he said. "Here I am, just a regular guy
working at a regular job, and the next*
day boom! I'm the mascot. Wow. I
mean, this just isn't the sort of thing
that happens to most people. I consider
myself a very lucky person."

sales and two soldout headlining tours,
Nine Inch Nail's Trent Reznor might be
calling it quits. The reason "artistic
differences."
Because Reznor is a solo act, he's not
fighting with fellow band members. He's
having trouble with his record company,
TVT Records.
"No one expected me to do as well as
I did and I'm happy with how it's gone,"
said Reznor from his tour bus in Dallas.
"Now they (TVT) don't want me to play
songs because they're not 'dance' music.
I don't give a shit about dance music."
Reznor also didn't forsee his success
but said he's unwilling to give into TVT's
critiques on any upcoming projects.
"I'll have to do it my way," Reznor said.
"There's no other option and I won't
compromise."
Nine Inch Nails came into the public
eye with the release of the LP Pretty Hate

The album mixed powerful beat-driven
industrial sounds with intelligent lyrics
by what seemed an angry and frustrated
Reznor.
When Nine Inch Nails was offered the
opening slot on a tour by Britain's Jesus

going just as well.
"The last couple of shows the crowd
has been in a Bon Jovi-like craze," Reznor
said. "I don't know if that's good or bad."
Reznor changes members of the touring
band at his discretion. The current tour
includes Richard Patrick on guitar, Lee
Marrs on keyboards, and Jeff Ward on
drums. Ward was a member of Revolting

between NlN's own tour.
"Just when I saw the light at the end of
my tour I ran into A1 (Jourgensen of
Revolting Cocks)," Reznor explained.
"He said something about Nivek Ogre (of
Skinny Puppy) not being able to go so I
decided to do the three week tour."
Jourgensen repaid the favor by helping
out on NlN's latest release, a maxi-single
for the song "Sin." Jourgensen produced
an additional track on the record, a cover
of Queen's "Get Down Make Love."
Reznor said his interest in Queen and
other such "classic rock" gods goes back
to his teen years.
"I grew up in Pennsylvania where there
was no underground so I listened to Pir,k
Floyd, Kiss and Queen," Reznor said.
Nowadays, Reznor's musical prefer preferences
ences preferences vary depending on the artists.
"I could listen to Severed Heads al albums

Reznor said. "But I also listen to Morris Morrissey

Reznor had been working out of Cleve Cleveland

Garden City district of New Orleans.
"New Orleans is unlike the typical

Youth movement: UF track
team to fill some big shoes

By BRIAN FIDELMAN
Alligator Writer
The UF mens track team hopes
to offset the loss of three All-
Americans in 1991 with a young
but talented attack.
The Gators have been one of
the nations top teams in recent
years, placing second indoors and
fourth outdoors in 1990.
But this year, UF loses Olympic
half-miler Mark Everett, as well
as javelin thrower Tom Pukstys,
the American collegiate record recordholder,
holder, recordholder, hurdler Earl Diamond and
Russ Willitt, the school record recordholder
holder recordholder in the discus.
The Gators will try to replenish
those losses with one of the
nations best recruiting classes,
plus a strong group of veterans.
UF Coach John Webb said he
looks forward to what he hopes

If Tyrone stays focused and
