As the fall winds down, and the College's Greek organizations begin to host end-of-term formal events, three popular event venues in the Upper Valley have prepared for an influx of Dartmouth students. And despite past problems involving intoxicated students and underage drinking, event venues in the Upper Valley continue to open their doors to College formal events.
To the Editor:
There is no more hollow term in big-time college athletics than the fabled "student-athlete."
I come not to praise Vanessa Sievers, but to bury her. Sievers, now a national flash in the pan, democratically won the local election for county treasurer. This is immediately inspiring; young people in America are finally becoming considered mature enough to run for office and better their communities. One of us can now stand up and say, "I'm a real treasurer!" But then we find out Geppetto (Bill Sharp, Grafton County's register of deeds) had a grudge, and everyone involved has been turned into an ass.
"Stop Kiss," which premiered Thursday night, explores the coexistence of love and hate through the story of two women who identify as straight but slowly discover their attraction to one another, only to be torn apart by a heinous act of violence that interrupts their first kiss.
From the way brothers Peter Mathias '09 and Teddy Mathias '09 readily finish each other's sentences, you would never guess that there was ever any conflict between them. Back in the early days of Filligar, however, the young brothers fought over which one of them would get to play drums in their newly formed band.
Dartmouth College tested DartAlert, a new campus-wide emergency notification system, on Tuesday, shutting down all campus landlines for the afternoon. The system sends e-mails to everyone on campus and an automated phone call to those telephones in the College's system in case of a campus emergency, such as a natural disaster or violence, according to Roland Adams, the College's director of media relations. The test went well, and many people received the e-mail and phone call in a timely fashion, Mark Wilson '09, the MIR3 College Committee representative, said. The system is currently in its initial phase, but if the College continues to use MIR3, the company that operates DartAlert, later phases may allow for a registry of phone numbers to which notifications can be sent, according to Adams. Students would then be able to receive alerts on cell phones and in Greek or other off-campus housing.

Mearsheimer's speech, "Why China Can't Rise Peacefully," is the first in a five-part lecture series on the rise of China, sponsored by the War and Peace Studies program of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding.
Breaking a week of silence, Carol Elliott, the former Grafton County Treasurer, called Treasurer-elect Vanessa Sievers '10 a "teenybopper" who won her seat solely based on support from "brainwashed" college students, in an interview with the Valley News. Elliott also said that the "real people" in Grafton County voted for herself, not Sievers.
College President James Wright has announced plans to cut the College's budget by 5 percent this year, with the goal of reducing the budget by 10 percent -- approximately $40 million -- within the next two years. The plans include a hiring freeze, reducing all College discretionary spending this fiscal year by 5 percent, deferring several construction plans and reviewing new programs. The statement came after the College announced first quarter endowment losses of $220 million, as reported by The Dartmouth on Monday.
