AGRICULTURAL SYSTEMS IN AN ECOLOGICAL CONTEXT
STS 297C/ANTRO 297/810 297 3CR T/TH 9:45-11:00 A.M.
Instructors: James Hatch, Anthropology and Christopher Uhl, Biology
This course will provide a cross-cultural analysis of agricultural systems in
prehistoric and contemporary cultures located in different ecological settings.
Particular attention will be given to system sustainability, 'energy-use efficiency,
and ecological stability. A broad goal will be to understand how cropping systems
both in the U.S. and elsewhere have evolved, how they operate, and where
improvements can be made. We will attempt to demonstrate that only through the
integration of ecological and cultural knowledge can agriculture establish a truly

Students rent films for good times
By JILL S. KOSKO
Collegian Arts Writer
They used to be a luxury. Now they're
a part of everyday life.
Video cassette recorders, better
known as VCRs, have become a part
of student socializing, right along
with bars, parties, football games
Ned Owens, manager of Mondo
Video, 250 Calder Way, estimates that
at least 50 per cent of his customers
are students. "We actually try to seek
students out by offering coupons and
discounts," he said.
Although Mike's Video I, 230-A
West College Ave., also has a large
student clientele, they don't cater to
one specific group, says Kathy Como,
assistant manager. "Our business
doesn't suffer when the students
leave," she said. "In fact sometimes
it will get a little busier because the
professors and people involved with
the University have more free time."
Both Owen and Como agree that
their busiest time of the week is the
weekend, while the busiest time of the
year is during the harsh weather
months. "In the summer, there's
more to do people are outside
more," Owen said.
Mondo Video and Mike's Video
offer a wide variety of movies. "We
have everything," said Como about
Mike's Video. "Foreign films, horror,
science fiction, musicals, rock con
certs and educational and how-to
tapes." The store carries over 2000
titles, while Mondo Video offers over
1000. "But we're not stopping there
we're still building," said Owen, who
added that they lost many movies due
to a fire.
Como and Owen claimed it's hard
to say what movies are the most
popular, although the first-run re
leases (movies just brought out on
cassette) are big rental items. But
Como noted that Ghostbusters, which
was opened in the theaters over a
year ago, is still rented out every
weekend. And a movie which may
have been a sleeper in the theater is
often a popular movie on cassette;
Owen cited Power, Iron Eagle and
Teen Wolf as examples. Right now,
Bach to the Future, Witness and
Cocoon are in demand.
One reason video rentals have be
come popular is that they offer a
cheap form of entertainment. At

'Profiles in Excellence 1986':
Locally produced series on WPSX-TV highlights
By PAUL CREMO
Collegian Arts Writer
Throughout the course of the year,
television viewers are inundated
with a slew of award shows honoring
productions and performers from a
cross section of the popular arts.
Soap opera stars, situation come
dies, Broadway musicals, fast food
commercials, animal performers,
country musicians and screenwrit
ers are among those who vie for top
honors in a stream of programs
which seem to run together after a
while. Ironically, these over-pro
duced spectaculars place more em
phasis on the showbiz glitter of the
ceremony and the cult of personali
ty than on the honored works and
Rarely are the fine arts accorded
such attention, since their practi
tioners, supporters and audiences
seem to be smaller in number, less
homogeneous, and therefore, less
easily targeted by network spon
One yearly program, however,
avoids the problems inherent in
lauding forms which, by their na
ture, are meant to be disposable and
unchallenging. Instead, it explores
the works and thinking of those who
create in a wide range of the fine
arts. Fittingly, this show is not • a
network special, but a public tele
vision program. And it is produced
in our own backyard, at WPSX-TV.
The show is called Profiles in
Excellence 1986, and it will air at 8
p.m. tomorrow on WPSX. Actually,
it's not much of an awards show in
the sense we're used to. While cele
brating the artists' awards, the pro
gram reduces the scale to a more
human, individual level. Rather
than emphasizing ceremony, com
petition, suspense and acceptance
speeches, the show focuses on the
works, philosophies, and creative
processes of the artists themselves.
The story of Profiles in Excel
lence begins in 1980. In that year,
Governor Richard Thornburgh in
stituted the Governor's Awards for
Excellence in the Arts, aimed at
Although Power was not very successful In the theaters, it has been in
consistent demand among video cassette renters, said Ned Owen, manager of
Mondo Video. In the movie, Richard Gere stars as Pete St. John, a media
consultant who does everything he canto get his candidates elected. Action.

nonmembers can rent at Mondo.
membership costs $25; video rentals
for members cost $2.50 per movie and
$1 for each additional day, while for
non-members, the price is $3.50 and
$3.50 for each additional day. The cost
of renting a VCR is $8.95, which
includes two free movies, although
Owens says Mondo will probably
raise the price of VCR rental a dollar
and throw in an extra tape.
Mike's Video I rents movies only to

Since 1980, the winners of the
Governor's Awards have been pro
filed by WPSX-TV . Ned Faust,
producer/director of this year's pro
'gram, explains that Profiles "looks
at the artists and what makes them
tick." The award winners are pre
sented in seven eight-minute seg
ments which, Faust says, enable the
honorees "to include others, in the
creative process by taking them
behind the scenes. Seeing the hard
work, dedication and persistence
that goes into each creation helps
you to appreciate the genius that
comes out in the end result."

two forms of I.D. No security deposit
is required. Mike's Video gives their
members a catalogue, which includes
a synopsis of all their movies, telling
when the movie was made, who stars
in it, how long it is, whether it's in
black and white, etc.
Mike's Video also offers their mem
bers a monthly newsletter, announc
ing which movies they'll be getting
that month. "We get about 30 to 40 to
50 titles a month," Como said. Her
store rents movies for $2 a night and
VCRs for $7.50 a night, $l5 for three
days and $3O for a week.
The show's segments blend inter
views with glimpses of the subjects'
work and explorations of their crea
tive methods. Honorees are . pre

While these stores may offer good
deals to movie lovers, and members
especially, perhaps the best bargains
exist right in your own supermarket
or drugstore. For instance, Rite Aid,
116 S. Allen St., offers 1300 movies,
each renting for 990 a night. At this
price, the store also allows you to rent
a movie for the entire weekend. If you
want to join Rite Aid's video rental
club, you must put down a deposit
worth the price of the movie, using
either cash or credit card. Then when
the movie is returned, so is the depos
it, and you obtain a club card. There
is no membership cost.
Owen said, however, that stores
like Rite Aid pose problems for video
stores by increasing the competition.
"Video rental is definitely a big busi
ness in this town and everyone's
getting into the act," he said. "Soon
no one will be making money." He
added that supermarket and conve
nience stores usually aren't making
profits by renting movies they just
do it to draw in customer traffic.
A June 23 article in USA Today
supports Owen's claims. The piece
says that supermarkets, pharmacy
chains and 7-Elevens many open 24
hours will rent movies for as low as
490 just to attract customers. Of the
100,000 stores that rent or sell videos,
about 35,000 are video specialists. As
the stampede to buy VCRs slows, the
video market is becoming saturated.
Giving an example of the market's
competition, the article tells of one
video outlet that was the only one to
open in a 25 block area. A year later,
'the store had 16 competitors.
Still, Owen feels the VCR is not a
fad and is here to stay in American
life."lt's a cheap form of entertain
ment," he said, "and a wonderful
babysitter. Just get a bunch of mov
ies, pop them in and you can keep the
kids out of trouble for a couple of
Como feels VCRs are popular be
cause they "allow people to time-shift
and don't tie down people to their
TVs." When you rent a movie, you
don't have to be at a designated place
at a designated time. "What I like
about VCRs," she said, "is that if my
phone rings or I want to get some
thing to eat, I can just get up and put
the movie on pause." Does she feel,
like Owen, that VCR entertainment is
not just a passing thing? "I don't
know," Como said, "but our mem
bership just keeps going up."

They broke up in 1983, but reformed a
short time later, adding guitarist
John Lilley and bassist Andy King.
The Hooters spent their early years
playing clubs and high schools in the
Philadelphia area. As their following
grew, the band members realized
that it wasn't only their music that
was attracting fans. The guys' good
looks weren't hurting them either.

girls just kept going, 'Oh, you're so
cute.' I wanted to say to them, 'But

group hiatus that year, Hyman and
Bazilian began work on Cyndi Laup
er's She's So Unusual, playing most
of the guitars and keyboards and
writing the Grammy-nominated
"Time After Time."
"There's been some concern that
we 'gave away' too much of our sound
to Cyndi," Bazilian said later. The
instrument responsible for that sound
is the 'hooter,' the band's nickname
for a Rohner Melodica (a hybrid
keyboard-harmonica). "We can't
worry about that. If it's good music,
it'll be appreciated," he added.
After completing Lauper's album,
the band signed with Columbia Re

generated a few hit singles and a lot
of airplay for songs like the reggae
influenced "All You Zombies," "And

progressive -rock influenced "Hang

"Where Do All The Children Go.".
