See page 5 for story. Punchin * Towards Regionals By Chuck Chung The VMI boxing team put on a spectacular show last Saturday in the annual VMI Boxing Invitational. Cocke Hall was filled with afficianados. This invitational solidified our boxing team as one of the best in the nation. The tournament featured only half of VMI's strength, yet they dominated the show, clearly showing superior skill and conditioning. This is a reflection on the coach. Col. Calkins. He worked hard getting the boxers ready, and worked just as hard organizing the matches. The first bout was an exhibition featuring second classman INSIDE John Corley against Matt Cook of The Citadel at 172 lbs. In the first round Cook stirring things up, getting wild. Corley anxious at first, began to display the poise of a veteran. In the second round, Corley used his jab effectively. Landing a crushing right followed by a stinging left, Corley watched Cook receive an eight count. Corley did not intend to knock Cook out, and he continued to jab and box. Corley was sharp and clearly the better boxer. Corley responded well in his virgin bout. The next bout featured third classman Jian Li against Craig Carman of Penn State at 147 lbs.

Ivy League: The Other Side Of The Leaf By Pete Moore and Buddy Schmeling "Princeton is fully committed to the liberal arts and has a reputation of being an elitist, all male, snobby school; but it is not." Taken from one of Princeton's students, this statement typified the many facets and perceptions of one Ivy League school. So set the scene for 12 impressionable cadets during an excursion to one of the nation's foremost institutions of higher learning. In as much as four days would allow, these cadets gained insight into some of the factors which define Princeton University. Few have been so privilieged to see its more elusive side, called Bickering, or Princeton's rush week. Against the stone backdrop of ivy-clad gothic buildings, a few of America's collegiate male elite erupted from an 18th century house screaming incoherent drunken phrases, wearing nothing but neck ties. Despite such events of debauchery, Princeton exuded conservatism. The conununity of Princeton, N.J., like its University, is one of the most affluent in the country. Take for example Princeton's exclusive "eating clubs" which run the selected members as much as $4,(XX) a year. A paltry sum when one considers that in return one receives access to Princeton's social life-line, and of course, the license to run naked throughout rush week. However, with one of the most powerful faculties in the country, Princeton can hardly be considered a "party school." In fact, its sole area of extracurricular drinking comprises only some 12 "eating clubs" which have for the most part restricted guest lists. Its academic standards are among the highest of liberal arts programs, yet in the glazed eyes of one disgrun- (continued on page 7)
