A & E
This week in history
Take a peek at what happened around mid-February in...
University of Notre Dame Government Professor Gerhart Niemeyer raised the ire of hippie Ebbtide writer Don Bockelman.
"I felt 'pressured' listening to this authority figure telling me that I am destroying the fabric of American life ... by wearing my hair long, my beard uncreamed by creamy Noxima [sic] cream puffs," said Bockelman.
"So that I am equivalent to Nazi murders [sic] because I want to live with people and not images of people projected by well researched TV programmers."
According to Bockelman, the professor's anti-hippie attitude was lunacy bordering on genius, or vice versa.
The "Flack" arts-and-entertainment calendar announced concert dates for Neil Young, the Bee Gees, Roberta Flack and Curtis Mayfield (of Superfly renown); while the regular briefs section announced meetings of the Northwest Shell Collectors and SCC's Christian Science Organization.
Psychotherapist Judith Briscoe-Kleven gave a brown-bag lecture on campus, addressing the issue: why women think they need a man. She identified the following as "victimizing" theories: pairing seen in nature; Freud's "sexual organ" envy; and Judeo-Christian subversion mechanisms in advertising.
To overcome their "non-okayness," Briscoe-Kleven recommended that women become their own best friends through self-affirmation.
On the page immediately following the Briscoe-Kleven article, The Ebbtide asked the SCC community what they wanted from Cupid on Valentine's Day. Of the dozen women who answered, one-third wanted roses and another one-third asked for "beefcake."
The paper wrapped up its coverage of Club Day with articles on a handful of clubs, including those for the science savvy, Christian conscious, future focused and Cheerleading.
The SCC men's basketball team narrowly missed its shot at post-season play when Skagit Valley beat the buzzer for an 82-80 win.
