It showed a bride and groom with their attendants lined up for picture taking. The group has to wait as the groom is talking on his cell phone. The marriage of Hong Kong"s free wheeling capitalist society to the communist government of China has been a widely-discussed issue for weeks. Discussion has dominated coverage in newspapers, magazines, television news and talk shows. However, despite speculation, there have been very few waves made among the Hong Kong students here at UVSC and BYU. Kay Starr, referring to the Chinese Government said. "Sometimes they arc crazy." but she had no real apprehensions concerning the future Donation drive extended By John Bemhard of The College Times OREM -The Center for Women and Children in Crisis and UVSC's Volunteer services have teamed up for a donation drive to benefit the center. The donation drive, originally scheduled for a 10-day run at the end of June, was extended until the end of July due to a mediocre response. "We have an urgent need for help." Lora Smith, campus vista volunteer, said. "It the drive has not been going as well as wc expected." Stewart's legacy Brigham Young's Harold B. Lee Libraty could see a windfall ofJimmy Stewart memorabilia as the legendary actor passes on. Br the .Associated Press PROVO - The death of actor Jimmy Stewart could result in additions to an already significant collection of his movie memorabilia at Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library. Stewart donated numerous items to the school in 1985, including letters, scripts, his nominations for Academy Awards and 19 original 16mm prints of some of his most significant movies, including "The Philadelphia Story," "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Rear Window." Stewart also gave BYU two of his accordions. Stewart died Wednesday at age 89 at his Beverly Hills home from a blood clot in his lung.

By Stephen Carter of The College Times The Center for Women and Children in Crisis steps in when battered women and their children can no longer live with abusive men. According to Smith, victims and their children leave their homes fearing for their lives. They arrive at the center with nothing more than the clothing on their back. "Julie," a recent victim of spousal abuse, had nothing - no toiletries, no clean underwear for her toddler son, no food and no hope. The center provided her with the basics, like laundry soap, a pillow and blankets and other bare neccessities. ian for special projects, said the collection takes up eight boxes, not including the films. Negotiations will proceed with Stewart's estate for additional items the actor wanted given to the school upon his death. His passing also means that the collection will be collated, catalogued and likely displayed for the first time. "(The collection) is not fully processed yet. so it's not really open to the general public for use," Duvall said. "Our general policy is that collections arc not used until they arc fully processed." Documenting all of the Stewart material in the collection has been on hold because curators expect to receive more items once Stewart died. Duvall said. Jim D'Arc, curator of arts and communication archives, will begin to negotiate with the actor's estate to bring more of Stewart's materials to the Lee Library. It was D'Arc who. in the early 1980s, sent a letter to 88 HIGH LOW LOW High clouds and afternoon breezes 9 iiif rv 10 i a li o I o 1 1 e !i; is of Hong Kong. Polly Starr. Kay's sister, who attends UVSC, felt the that the biggest change would just he the need to brush up on her Mandarin, the language of mainland China. This attitude probably comes as a shock to Americans who have had a long political rivalry with communism. It has been represented as a godless and controlling system that destroys nations and people. William Cobb, a professor of political science and history at UVSC. has a few theories on why communist rule doesn't phase the people of Hong Kong. First, the citizens of Hong Kong probably don't view the turnover as a victory for communism so much as a victory for Asia and the Chinese people. But cases like Julie's are becoming far more commonplace and the center's resources arc being tapped to dangerously low levels. "Wc need more food, more cleaning supplies, more everything." said a worker, who asked to remain unknown. The donation drive has been extended until the end of July. Smith hopes that the extension will allow more people to become aware of Volunteer Serv ice's efforts to provide living supplies to needy women and children. The most needed things, according to Smith, are cleaning will live at BYU JIMMY MORE: Beloved actor dames Stewart, seen here in a still photo from the film "Harvey," died last week at age 89. Stewart asking if the actor would be interested in housing film-related memorabilia at the Lee Library. "Jim had already put together a good program here of preserving film manuscripts," Duvall said. "After that initial letter. (D'Arc and Stewart) met and developed a very close relationship."INSIDE Hipster We've all been in a situalion u here being 'cool' would have prei 'ented untold gtief.

See page 5 SO LONG HONG KONG: One of the proudest cities in the world and long a provincial territory of the United Kingdom, was recently transferred into the hands of China. Hong Kong citizens were apprehensive and excited about the move and its longterm ramifications. It would be as if Texas had been forcibly taken from the U.S. 150 years ago and was finally being turned back over to its mother country. Americans probably wouldn't view a similar takeover - British Columbia being returned to the U.S. by Great Britain, for example - as a victory for democracy, but rather a more nationalistic sentiment that a sibling had been brought back into the family. It's the reuniting of a people rather than of two contrasting governments. 1 month supplies, toiletries and food. The center requests that donated expendables be unopened and in their original packaging. Clothing, especially underwear, should be as close to new if not in its original packaging as well. "It's a lot to ask for. but these women and children are in need." said a center worker. Donations can be dropped in boxes in front of Volunteer Services located in SCI 19 near the Fishbowl computer lab in the east hall of the Student Center. Volunteers will also pick up donations. For more information, call 222-8795. D'Arc's contacts with Stewart led to a visit by the actor to Utah on Feb. 1, 1985. Stewart spoke at BYU's dc Jong Concert Hal. Stewart was attracted by the fact that the Lee Library already housed a mammoth Cecil B. Dc Mille collection as well as other significant collections of film-related materials, Duvall said.

Rover unit explores the surface of Mars A foot-high robot aimed with a 3-D camera is the key to answering centuries-old questions asked by scientists and stargazers alike By Matt Crenson of the .Associated Press PASADENA, California-The Mars rover Sojourner was headed for a lumpy boulder nicknamed "Barnacle Bill" on Sunday among a field of diverse rocks that had scientists ecstatic with prospects of unraveling the planet's puzzles. "She is the robotic equivalent of Neil Armstrong on Mais." rover scientist Henry Moore said proudly. "She's your field geologist, and she wants to thank the people of the United Stales and all foreign contributors paying for her."

See page 9 Additionally, Cobb said the return of Hong Kong could represent an ugly piece of history erased from the annals of China. Hong Kong was originally taken over by the British in an attempt to secure a trade route into China. The merchandise being imported to China by the British was opium, and it was destroying the nation. So Hong Kong, under English rule, represented a shameful defeat, a See HONG KONG, page 3 istry of the Martian surface, as if it were alive. Between its instruments and images taken by the lander's camera, scientists can sense the Martian environment better than ever. "We have the perfect site, the perfect spacecraft, the perfect instruments and the perfect rover." project scientist Matthew Golombck said. On Sunday afternoon, hours after it rolled down a ramp from the Mars Pathfinder lander. Sojourner sat just beyond the ramp, at the end of a distinct pair of tracks in the red dust. From studying the tracks, geologists said the surface seemed like a thin dusting of Hour over a harder layer. By day's end. Sojourner was expected to have completed a 90-degree counterclockwise rotation, then backed up a few inches to put its alpha proton X-ray spectrometer in contact with Barnacle Bill, a bumpy rock about the size of the rover.
