The Collegian Wednesday, January 25
I was cleaning out ;My mailbox from last semester, and I found
two unanswered letters. Sorry it took so long to respond. If you can
remember back as far as Thanksgiving when a somewhat embittered
Snow White asked, "Is it old fashioned and obsolete to wait for
Prince Charming....?" Well I'm here to tell you, Snow White, there
really is a Prince Charming, and he writes:
You asked, if there are still any Prince Charmings out here....well„
hat I am.
My former friends have been talking about sex since they were
high school freshmen. Meanwhile, I asked myself why a-girl with
any common sense at all would even want to talk to these guys. The
way they treated girls was (and still is) unbelievable. Talk about
people who "Love 'ern and leave 'cm!" These guys gave new meaning
to the word "asshole."
rthink if there is mutual love and respect, then there is no need to
think about "how far you can get." If you're with someone you think
you love, and you' think she loves you, then try just sleeping
together, no sex. If there is something special it shouldn't make a bit
of diffrence. To me, making love to someone who really loves you
should be the greatest experienc.e in a relationship, not just
Dear Snow White. and Prince Charming,
I sure hope you' find each other. • ,
I have a terrine girlfriend. We have been - seeing radii other for over
a year and everything is going veal. except..
There is this other gitl to whom I am really attracted. I don't want
to mess up my present relationship, but I find myself thinking about
the other girl all ofihe tithe.
Dating both girls is out of the question - that never really works.
I want to stay with my steady girlfriend, but I am't.get,the other girl
off of my mind. What can I do? tr ; •
I hope haven't waited so long to answer that
. you up somewhere. From where I sit, it,
lookS like you've got three alternatives.
I. You can take the coward's way out, cheat on your
- girlfriend and , hope you don't get caught. Then you'll
only have feelings of guilt OR your mind all of the
2. You can tell your girlfriend you think both of
you should get- to -know others to help find out if you
really are meant for each other. (Would you believe I
tried that on my husband before •we were married and
we've been together 27 'years?)
3. You can avoid that other girl and wear a rubber
band on your wrist. Give yourself a' whack' every time
she pops into your mind and get busy doing something
else-, Believe it or not:it- works on all kinds of
'obseisitais. Of course - I =fall 'guarantee you • Won't get
locked up if -you •-go around 'constantly whacking

Minority College Enrollment Drops
CP S Despite intense
recruiting efforts, there were
fewer black men on American
campuses in 1986 than there had
been in 1976; a new census
Some 470,000 black - men
were enrolled in colleges in 1976,
the American Council on
Education (ACE) reported Jan.
16, compared to 436,000 in
The ACE's David Merkowitz
found the decline "alarming."
The enrollment of black
women, by contrast, stayed about
the same 5.2 percent of the total
U.S. college student population
it had been 10 years earlier.

Let's see now: the moon is
round, the sun is round, the rest
of the planets are round and the
stars are round. Gee, DID WE
THINK THAT WE WERE
SPECIAL OR SOMETHING?
Halloween: A pretext to dress
funny, act strange and stuff our
faces with candy (it almost
sounds like Valentines Day,
doesn't it?). Let's keep it.
AH!!!! Are you SERIOUS?!?
Thanksgiving: A good reason

trying to do that for years.

academic standards may have
sabotaged those goals.

decline might be attributed to
retreat in civil rights enforcement
in higher education under the
The Joint Center study by
Gary Orfield, a University of
Chicago professor, says black
enrollment peaked in 1980 at 1.1
million as a result of the
government's commitment to
enforcing civil rights during the
1960 s and 19705.
Under Reagan, Orfield said,
staffing for the Department of
Education's Office of Civil
Rights was cut by one fourth and
its budget reduced by $2.8
WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT
THE WONDERFUL GUY
Really, Christmas is my
favorite holiday. And the Ayatola
Kohmeni is my idea of the
perfect baby sitter. I suppose we
could keep it, as long as someone
does my shopping for me.
And there you have it. No
fuss, no muss, no hassle. One
last note: all Federal holidays,
like National Flashlight Week
(I'm not kidding!) would be
eliminated. Of course my
