"The institution of marriage is indeed an honorable, valuable, and important institution and it deserves the prime position it has in our society; but there is nothing it demands on people, there are no aspirations it holds out, and there are no requirements it imposes that ought not to be equally available to gays and "I think it is an incredible thing to do for those less fortunate then us," said sophomore Peter Todd.

While in Chiquimula, the students worked with Dr. Hirsche in surgery, performing many tasks for the first time. Dr. Hirsche is often referred to as the "prayer doctor." Before every surgery, he offers a prayer for the patient and staff. Those prayers helped them through their 12 hour working clays.

Bush posted an impressive win over his rival John McCain in Saturday's primary election in South Carolina. McCain had been surging of late, but Bush prevailed with an impressive 11 point win. Returns showed Bush won among most demographic groups in the open primary. Voter turnout was at an unprecedented high, with Republican Party officials estimating participation of more than 600,000 voters. In the 1996 primary, South Carolina drew about 275,000. Bush seemed extremely confident after the results were announced, calling the win a "big victory," and claiming that the victory had "united our cause and united our party." Early in the voting Bush, was very optimistic, predicting victory before noon.

Lesley Anne Williams won first runner-up and Christine Youngberg was awarded the second runner-up position. Ten contestants participated in the pageant which has no set criteria for entry besides, of course, being a UVSC student. The pageant contestants were scored in four areas: talent, interview, swimsuit competition and evening wear. The talent competition was worth 40 percent and interview 30 percent, while the swimsuit and evening wear categories carried 15 percent of the final vote. Bob Rasmussen, pageant director, had nothing but praise to offer about the new queen. "I have a sense that what set Brittany apart was her fresh and personal approach, she wasn't rehearsed, she was just herself. She's a very delightful and positive person," he said. Ma.

During the evening wear competition each girl was asked a different question. Their answer was not judged as part of the competition. Brittany was asked to give an example of a hero in her life. Her answer was her little brother, who at 2 p.m. and announced that he would be available for comment all day. This was quite a shift of strategy for the Bush campaign. During the New Hampshire primary, which Bush lost by 19 points, Rove was missing in action until very late in the evening. This time the entire Bush camp emanated an air of confidence throughout the entire day's proceedings. McCain conceded defeat in an unusually bitter speech Saturday night. The Senator accused Bush of delivering a "negative message of fear" and of having nothing to offer but "an empty slogan of reform." McCain's speech reflected his disappointment and frustration in losing such a critical opportunity to derail the Bush campaign. The South Carolina primary was seen as a critical stop for both campaigns. Had McCain won, republicans around the country may very well have abandoned the Bush campaign in favor of the Arizona Senator. Many analysts feel Bush is in a good position to win the nomination. In order for McCain to unseat him, McCain must somehow derail the Bush campaign QUOTE OF THE WEEK John Wooden It is what you learn after you know it all that counts.
