Freedman's Sabbatical

(11/23/94 11:00am)

College President James Freedman has now completed a six-month series of chemotherapy treatments for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, diagnosed last April. During this time he has kept the College informed of his condition, continued his daily duties as president and in doing so shown his selfless dedication to the Dartmouth community. Next term he begins a six-month sabbatical, agreed upon by the Board of Trustees last winter.

Finish the Job

A year and a term ago, the sidewalk in front of Massachussetts Row was torn up and the road turned into a pedestrian walkway. It is meant to be a sightline between Collis and the Rockefeller Center, but it still looks like a back alley, surrounded by tilting wooden poles and yellow rope. The renovation was meant to allow Mass Row a dramatic visual appearance from its center front, but when the granite stones there were knocked down, cars returned to park in the view. The offices of Facilities Planning and Facilities Operations and Management should turn those center parking spots into grass and sidewalk, and replace the wooden poles with real metal chains and posts.

To highlight our societal ills and to engender change, many groups have co-opted speakouts/vigils as modes of publicizing and politicizing communities.

They asked the reporter not to print their names along with their stories.

Once college students took risks to speak out about their convictions. Our predecessors protested Vietnam and fought for divestment because they believed in human rights, and they sacrificed their convenience to demonstrate the depth of their commitment. One need only recall the students and professors who spent winter nights in shanties on the Green to comprehend the scope of the campus' concerns.
