Thoughts on Hypocrisy

I was a bit puzzled by Dave Gacioch's column, "Thoughts on Objectivity," in yesterday's issue of The Dartmouth, in which he charged this newspaper with disseminating false information and whoring the First Amendment to further its own agenda. Now, I'm not usually one to respond to other people's columns, but the only thing I dislike more than self-important pseudo-politicians is hypocrisy.

A Logical Choice for President

As I walked into Spaulding Auditorium yesterday for the live closed-circuit announcement of the next president of the College, I was thinking that Bill Bradley or Robert Reich would be nice choices, but that James Wright would be the logical choice.

Staring Through the College Crystal Ball

Well, it was announced yesterday that historian Doris Kearns Goodwin will be the Commencement speaker for the Class of 1998 this June, and let me be the first senior to say the following: Who cares?

Men's icers have season come down to two games

After 27 games and almost five months of hockey, the Dartmouth men's hockey team's season comes down to the final two regular season games this weekend, tonight against Brown and tomorrow night against Harvard at Thompson Arena. The Big Green (11-11-5 overall, 7-10-3 ECAC, 8th place) are right on the cusp of making the playoffs for just the third time in the 1990s, and they have their destiny in their own hands.

Three-for-all: Trio of games free: Athletic department makes hockey free to all undergraduates

They say you can never get something for nothing. But this weekend Dartmouth students will get a triple treat -- free admission to three important ice hockey games at Thompson Arena. With the men's ice hockey team on the cusp of making the playoffs and the women's ice hockey team already in the ECAC quarterfinals, the College's Athletic Department is pulling out all the stops to encourage Dartmouth students to come out and support their teams this weekend. All students can gain free admission to Friday's and Saturday's men's games and Saturday afternoon's women's playoff game simply by showing their Dartmouth ID upon entry into Thompson Arena before any of the games. The men's team takes on Brown tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m.

Men's hockey reaches crossroads of its season

While most Dartmouth students will be in the midst of admiring the snow sculpture, dancing at the Swing Ball and partying hard all over campus, the Big Green men's hockey team will continue their quest for the playoffs with two tough road tilts this weekend. The Green (9-9-3 overall, 5-8-1 ECAC, 9th place) are enjoying their best season since the 1979-80 campaign, but if they are to make the postseason or get home-ice advantage in the first round, they will need to make the most of their last eight games, starting with tonight's game against Colgate and tomorrow night's matchup versus Cornell. With these two games being the fifth and sixth straight contests for the Green away from home, Head Coach Bob Gaudet recognizes that the squad might be a bit road-weary: "We've been in the midst of a brutally tough schedule I think, and it's not going to lighten up for us ... Colgate and Cornell are tough places to play, and they will be very physical contests.
