In his guest column of September 29, Joe Asch '79 suggests that the Alumni Governance Task Force (AGTF) is a pawn of the College administration, using it to manipulate alumni trustee election results. As chair of the AGTF, I can categorically say that this is completely false.
The recent controversy over Noah Riner's convocation speech has inspired many Dartmouth students to raise their guard and insist that a speech defending absolute truth and encouraging a change of beliefs is inappropriate.
I'm going to start with a supposition that I think is eminently reasonable and work my way from there. If, at some point, you decide you disagree with the conclusions that I leap to, that's fine. You can disembark my train of thinking and we can part ways with no hard feelings.
Bobby Zangrilli '05 knew what a hard guy was before he ever set foot on the Dartmouth campus.

Paris Hilton said she ended her five-month engagement to a Greek shipping heir because she's "not ready for marriage" and didn't want it to end in divorce. The 24-year-old celebutante-turned-model broke off wedding plans with Paris Latsis, 22, because she didn't want to rush into marriage too quickly.
Last Thursday, students, locals, and those visiting Hanover filled Spaulding Auditorium as a weeklong celebration of arts and culture culminated with "Yunnan Revealed," a show featuring a mix of indigenous instruments and music from a southwestern province in China.
On Friday night, I had the wonderful opportunity to hear the Wayne Shorter Quartet, led by renowned saxophonist Wayne Shorter and featuring Danilo Perez on piano, John Patitucci on bass and Brian Blade on drums. It was my first jazz concert ever, and it was certainly an experience that can only be described with one word: wow.
Coming off a thrilling win against Vermont on Wednesday, the Dartmouth field hockey team hoped to carry its momentum into a busy weekend of games. Unfortunately for the Big Green, momentum wasn't enough and the team fell 1-0 to Penn in a low-scoring defensive battle in Philadelphia on Saturday and then lost at home against the New Hampshire Wildcats, 4-1 on Sunday.
Regionally ranked Big Green volleyball (9-3, 2-0 Ivy) out-hit, out-served and outmatched opponents to win the Harvard Invitational this weekend in Cambridge. Dartmouth's win steak, currently at eight games, continued Friday night with a straight-set victory over host Harvard (2-8, Ivy 0-2). An easy three-game victory for the Big Green over Sacred Heart (3-12) marked the first of two Pioneer losses on the weekend.
Dartmouth's cross country teams were in split-squad action this weekend, but still had enough manpower on each team to leave the competition in the dust. Dartmouth's men placed second in both Maine's Murray Keatinge Invitational and at the Keene State Invitational, while the women took third at Keatinge and first at Keene.
Saturday, the Dartmouth football team showed that playing roughly even on first, second and third downs against a good football team cannot always guarantee even a close game. In a 26-9 thumping from Ivy League powerhouse Penn, the Big Green (1-2, 0-1 Ivy) squandered several opportunities to put points on the board, missing two field goals and an extra point. Two blocked punts and a bad snap on another, meanwhile, helped set up two Penn field goals.
The Dartmouth women's soccer team fell to a record of 6-3-0 after suffering a 2-0 loss yesterday to the Princeton Tigers (3-4-2, 1-1 Ivy). The match was the second straight Ivy competition for the two teams and brings both teams to 1-1 in the conference. The loss serves as a setback for Dartmouth, which had previously excelled in non-conference play and also won their first Ivy match over Brown last Saturday.
The Big Green men's soccer team started its defense of last year's Ivy League title with a hard-fought and well-earned 1-0 overtime defeat of the Princeton Tigers at Chase Field.
To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the coverage of the trend towards motherhood among Ivy League Women (Sept. 29). Nationwide, only 2 out of 9 supreme court justices -- most likely 1 of 9 soon if Justice O'Connor is not replaced by a woman, a few percent of CEOs at major companies, 14 percent of senators and only about a quarter of full professors are women. I worry that this is due in large part to the fact that significant numbers of women educated at the most elite colleges - the ones probably most likely to have such high-powered careers - are not working outside the home in their prime adult years.
