Tuck School Professor Kenneth French is one of the world's top thinkers in economics and finance, but if you don't find him in his office, look for him to be out skiing or cycling in the New Hampshire countryside he loves.

Over the summer, Sam Means '03 and a friend traveled to New York City for an open audition for the popular television game show, "Weakest Link." After a mock game with other hopefuls, designed for the producers to pick actual contestants, Means took a dim view of his chances.
As fluctuations in the rank of certain elite schools on U.S. News and World Reports' annual rankings list continue to capture the public's attention -- and even as the debate over such rankings' merits continues to rage -- the significant demands such rankings make on administrators' time go largely unheeded.
Despite Dartmouth's recent budget cuts, officials in the College Real Estate office still plan to sell a house located at 1 MacDonald Drive in Hanover on the basis of seniority, rather than trying to sell it at the highest possible cost.
Following the arrest of two Dartmouth students for the mass production of fake identification, area vendors are being warned to check IDs from California, Florida and New Mexico and may be clamping down on those seeking to buy alcohol underage.
"Most of my material is stolen directly from the works of Shakespeare, Dostoevsky and Hustler Magazine," comic musician Stephen Lynch recently told Time Out New York, his tongue no doubt well-ensconced in his cheek.
The Dartmouth Rugby Football Club traveled to Cambridge, Mass., on Saturday and lost to a mediocre Harvard squad 31-7. Without its captain, whose season is over due to a knee injury suffered in the University of Connecticut match, the DRFC put up an uninspired effort in the pouring rain and mud. It was Dartmouth's first loss of the season, dropping the team to 4-1.
Arriving on campus for preseason in early September, the members of the Dartmouth Women's Rugby Club weren't quite sure what to expect for the fall season. The team was small, both in physical size and in numbers, and the physical rucking game that had worked in the past was obviously not an option.
Oh, God. Are you one of those types? One of those ... feminist Nazis?" This statement, postulated by a dismayed-looking friend of mine upon hearing the subject of this column, probably captures many students' reaction to the word "feminism." It's true; feminism is now thought of as "passe." After some women's overzealous actions in the name of feminism, it's understandable that doubt -- even a reticent eye-rolling -- should meet the enthusiastic preacher of women's rights. However, the popular image of feminism as "the bitterness of ugly women," (freely contributed by the same aforementioned friend) is enormously detrimental to women everywhere. Women should not feel that pursuing the advancement of their gender, in the ideal of equality, is outdated or embarrassing. The degree of need for feminism in the United States does not necessarily correspond to the prevalent attitude toward it.
All's fair in love and war, and man, it's a jungle out there. We come across challenges and ugly situations every day, and being nice won't get us very far. No, to prevail in the harsh reality of daily life, some subversive tactics have to be employed. One of the more useful tactics is what military strategists call misdirection. Now, misdirection in the strictly military sense is slightly different, but in day-to-day life, misdirection simply means mastering the art of speaking without actually saying anything, describing without being concrete, communicating without making sense. Such arts are often showcased by illustrious figures such as tarot readers and our esteemed President Bush, but we cannot all hope to be so naturally talented. With enough persistence and practice, however, we can hope to excel in daily verbal misdirection, leaving all our enemies confused and in the dark, exactly the way we want them. I am pleased to report that Dartmouth students, on average, are rather skilled at these arts. Our weapon in the art of misdirection is so potent and insidious that we should surely get something valuable (like P.E. credit) for mastering it. I am talking, of course, about our use of the word "sketchy."
Forget about college. Recent research shows that for New Hampshire high schoolers, just leaving high school with a diploma is proving difficult.
A recent report released by the Association of American Colleges and Universities suggests that American schools need to remove the "artificial division" between liberal arts and pre-professional studies.
A recently-implemented Ivy League rule that requires at least 49 days of rest for varsity athletes during the off-season is drawing resistance from many athletes and coaches at Dartmouth.
Anyone who has taken a literature course understands the total puzzlement of class book lists. Rows of titles represent definitive examples of "The Nineteenth Century English Novel" or "American Prose," but where these masterpieces come from and what makes them worth studying remains a mystery.
While the Hanover Inn's Take a Professor to Lunch program was cancelled in August due to cuts in Dartmouth's budget, the popular program is scheduled to resume next Monday. Administrators interviewed by The Dartmouth said that students may interpret the story of Take a Professor to Lunch as a sign that students' voices matter in determining what programs must go to the budget cuts.
Whether intentionally or not, the title of Loaded Dreams' debut EP, "In It But Not of It," characterizes the music's relationship to its genre. While it's indie rock, it transcends the genre by going beyond traditional instrumentation. For example, it uses samples well, like the chirping birds that open one song. The music also features a viola, which adds a dawning eeriness to the regular lineup of drums, bass and guitar.
Jay Fiedler '94, after breaking his thumb with less than four minutes left, led the Miami Dolphins from behind to defeat the Denver Broncos 24-22.
The Dartmouth men's water polo team (7-1-0) fought its way to an undefeated weekend at Middlebury College. In decisive victories over Amherst, Williams, Tufts and host Middlebury, the team pulled its way into a tie with Boston College for first place in the New England Division.
To the Editor:
In light of the one-sided exposure given to the Greens' activism against action in Iraq, allow me to argue in favor of the view held by the vast majority of Americans, both Republican and Democrat: that failure to remove Saddam will spell consequences too horrible to imagine here at home.
