It was with great dismay that I read of another shooting by a young perpetrator, this time in Pennsylvania. But rather than making an argument for more gun control, an argument against the implement of destruction, I would like to attempt to make an argument which cuts to the true root of the problem which has less to do with guns and their use by youth and more to do with a cultural malaise.

To the Editor:
Johnetta Cole, the College's Montgomery Fellow during the month of May, has served as the first African-American woman president of Spelman College and has published several books about cultural anthropology, but she said she still has a lot to learn from Dartmouth students about life in Hanover.
About 400 student volunteers braved the rain Saturday to contribute a total of 1,200 hours to 72 different Upper Valley charities in the second annual DarCORPS community service day.

It is no coincidence that "The Sweet Hereafter" is on over 250 critics lists for the top 10 movies of 1997. Very few films are able to achieve the level of greatness that it reaches. "The Sweet Hereafter" -- showing Sunday night in Spaulding Auditorium -- is an extraordinary film that should be seen by anyone who wants quality fare.

A 17th-century English Baroque opera with a male soprano?
The North Carolina Tar Heels proved that in lacrosse, it doesn't take long to win a game.
I've been trying to get a friend of mine to pick up her violin and play some duets with me. She's very reluctant and very concerned that her playing isn't good enough. I think this is a common sentiment among many talented amateur musicians, which makes me think that what Dartmouth needs more of is spaces for modest talent to play a little and get comfortable with a friendly audience.
Last Saturday I had Coca-Cola and jazz for breakfast -- a drastic deviation from my standard Lucky Charms and milk.

The Coke shot sugar right into my bloodstream while the jazz massaged my generally academically-geared mind. Granted, I was slightly hungry, but I can deal with a few hunger pangs.
These days, whenever you read the front page of any newspaper, you read about some sex scandal, murder or bombing. They'll tell you who died, where they died and how many people died. After a while, it gets a bit depressing reading sad and disheartening news. Most people become callous to tragic news -- sort of like coroners get used to dissecting corpses. So I thought I'd break the trend and write one of those feel-good columns.
I am writing in response to Kenji Hosokawa's "The Harvardization of Dartmouth," which appeared in Tuesday's issue of The Dartmouth. It made me sick.
Although sophomores may have received strange looks from their friends back home when they told them they would be at Dartmouth this summer, students and professors alike do not seem to mind the College's year-round operation system.
"Dating Doctor" David Coleman told a boisterous standing-room-only crowd in 105 Dartmouth Hall last night that "it's not how many dates you go on that's important, but how well they go, and if they lead to a second date."
Two additional students, Abigail Gordon '98 and Arvidas Remeza '98 have been named Fulbright Scholars for the upcoming academic year. They will conduct research in Spain and Lithuania respectively.
College President James Freedman spoke candidly about what he called his lifelong "journey through cancer" to an audience of 120 local residents at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center last night.
College President James Freedman, who is stepping down this summer after serving 11 years, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Tonight at the Festival of New Musics, students can finally discover the answer to the one question they have pondered for years: what do a hydraulis, Squiggy and shakuhachi all have in common? The answer, of course, is that each is a musical instrument.
