Jerry Greenfield, half of the famous
Ben and Jerry’s ice cream duo, will
offer “An Evening of Entrepreneur
ial Spirit, Social Responsibility, and
Radical Business Philosophy,” on
Tuesday,Oct. 13at7:30p.m. His lec
ture, which will take place in the Reed
Union Building Commons, is free and

job in the ice cream industry was
working as a scooper in the cafeteria
during his years at Oberlin College.
When his original plans for medical
school didn’t work out, he and high
school and college friend Ben Cohen
decided to pursue their dream'of start
ing a food business together. In 1976
they settled on ice cream and began
researching the industry. Greenfield
made the ice cream for their busy
shop, which soon became known for
its rich, unusual flavors and its com
munity approach to business. Dur
ing the summer of 1986, Ben and
Jerry traveled across the country to
gether in their “Cowmobile,” serving
up free samples of their ice cream in
what they termed a “cross country
marketing drive.” For many years,
Ben and Jerry’s has donated 7.5 per
cent of its annual pretax profits to
charitable causes-the highest percent
age of any publicly held company.
The company has become a powerful

friends Sophie. As Sophie begins to
relax, she also shows signs that she
may be harboring guilty secrets, and
she may not be the only one. The di
rector of the film, Claude Chabrol re
turns to filmmaking with a vengeance
as he puts together this riveting drama
of secrets and lies. Compared to re
cent Hollywood films about destruc
tive outsiders, such as The Hand that
Rocks the Cradle, La Ceremonie is
complex, political, wickedly astute,
and refreshingly unpredictable. The
film continues the International Film
Series. The series, which is free and
open to the public, is sponsored by
the Mary Behrend Cultural Fund and
the School of Humanities and Social
