All Blood Donors Needed

(11/12/04 11:00am)

Visit the American Red Cross website. It will tell you that every two seconds, someone is in need of a blood transfusion. While hospitals across the country continue their battles with blood shortages, the American Red Cross last week completed yet another successful blood drive at Dartmouth. Hundreds of students, professors and local residents volunteered to give their blood and their time to help save lives. Fortunately, organizations like the American Red Cross and others collect annually over 15 million units of blood, a substantial step in the direction of satisfying the needs of patients across the country. Unfortunately, the federal policy on blood donor eligibility is one of bias and exclusion.

Women's novice crew speeds by competition

The Dartmouth women's novice crew team cleaned up at its first race of the season this weekend. Fighting windy and rough conditions on their home Connecticut River and rowing on a course shortened to 1.5 miles from its original three miles, the A boat came in first place at the Dartmouth Novice Invitational with a time of 9:40. The B boat was third with a time of 9:57, just seconds behind Boston University's A boat.

First-year rowers excel at home race

(11/11/04 11:00am)

Decked out in orange racing shirts and rowing through fierce winds, the Dartmouth freshman men's crews took to the Connecticut River Saturday with victory in mind. In the first home race of their Dartmouth rowing careers, the Big Green freshmen dominated the competition from Boston University, Harvard, Trinity, UNH and MIT. Both the heavyweight and lightweight squads turned out strong finishes, with the heavyweight eight winning the race and the lightweight squad winning the men's team award with the fastest combined time of any squad.

Reading the Rankings

(11/11/04 11:00am)

In a recent letter to the editor, my good friend and colleague Jon Appleton draws attention to the fact that Dartmouth did not do so well in a recent ranking exercise in The Times Higher Educational Supplement and then uses this result to condemn the academic leadership at the College ("Dean of Faculty Gets an F," The Dartmouth, November 10). Although the overall results place Dartmouth 138th out of 200 universities world wide, this should not be a cause for concern or a basis for criticism.
