Today's non-political issue i~ campu~ food. This idea popped into my head as I made very ab- stract sculptures out of some strange substance pretending to be mashed potatoes. I am sure that if Mom had been anywhere in the area I would have been given the classic line\ Stop play- ing with your food '\. On the other hand if if Mom was around I am sure that I would not be subjected to such near-food. As the mashed potatoes took the fonn of something or the other. I won- dered if I was alone in feeling that Turn:-. out that I wasn't. Many people feel that campus food could only benefit from a little improvement. Here are some of the complaints I got when I asked what they did'nt like about the food service here at S.U.C'.C.: Rockinl with Dokken The food is predictable. It is all too bland. I arn on a low so- dium diet and I get tired of eating the same thing over and over again. It sucks! They don't cater for vegetarians. I don't eat it. Too oily and too startchy. I wish they had more nutritional foods like vegetables rTRANSITION, the annual spring publication from transition workshop, will be accepting poems, and short stories through March 27, 1989.

Pi Kappa Phi makes a difference By Robert Anzalone Jr. Every other Sunday of each month, Pi Kappa Phi frater- nity gathers a portion of its members and journeys to Highgate Manor, an elderly hous- ing institution, to talk to and en- joy the company of older citi- zens. To meet the needs of the Highgate Manor residents. proper health care. housing. various exercise equipment, medicine, and competent medical attention provides these people with the means to survive. It seems, how- ever. that there is something the workers of Highgate Manor have trouble providing their residents: companionship and understand- ing. That is to say, the administra- tion and employees care very much for the people they take care of- and do an excellent job in providing social activities and medical attention for them- but a little outside help from Pi Kappa Phi helps to care for their emo- tional needs. For a few hours, this group of members play cards, games, and basically talk with the elderly people. These visits pro- By Matt Douglas Staff Writer Dokken- \Beast From The East\ Label: Elektra Format: Live (Double LP ) What is this anyway? Dokken makes four albums of catchy. high quality heavy metal and now they come out with this? There must be a rule that heavy metal bands release. in their ca- reers, at least one useless live album! S~me members of Pi Kappa Phi vide them with some new faces to look at and ~ chance to discuss, with the younger generation, dif- ferent topics of conversation. The fraternity members receive a sense of accomplish- ment and good will for their fel- low man- but more importantly, Dokken is from Cali- fornia, where most metal bands originate. Their first album was released in the early 80's and since then they've slowly built a good reputation and a loyal fan base. Their albums have con- tained many noteworthy songs including; 'BreakingTheChains', 'It's Not Love', • KissofDeath' and 'Dream Warriors'. Main- stream success appeared to have been achieved with the band's hit 'Dream Warriors' from \Night- mare on Elm Street Part Three\. Unfonunately this latest album it makes the residents of Highgate Manor feel good. Not only do they feel good because they beat the boys at cards- but because it gives them a chance to interact with different people.

Not only has the album's title been done by about a million other groups, but the songs are unoriginal as well. Who wants to pay good money to hear the band try (and fail) to exactly duplicate versions of songs we already have? Not me, that's for sure. How many times does one want to hear such color- ful and shouted questions as \Who's Ready To Party?\ Buy the studio albums and forget this live trash. while.
