harmful substances, according to
Weiner. She defines those as
physical, intellectual, vocational,
social communication,
emotional, and spiritual highs.
Through a "physical high,"
one can experience a high

as running, walking, and
sometimes even sex.

Most people in society block
qut their physical needs such as
sleeping and eating. Weiner feels
it is necessary to attain a physical
high in order to get back in
contact with these physical needs.
She explained that an
"intellectual high" consists of
successfully solving a problem or
finally understanding a concept.
Teachers are able to enjoy this
high as well as students through
their lectures and the satisfaction
gained through having the
students understand the lectures

This is the first time
Behrend's TKE chapter has had a
barrel roll, but they hope it will
become an annual event.
Inspiration came from a coast-to

fraternity every other year that
raises millions of dollars for St.
Jude's Childrens Hospital. St.
Jude spokesman Danny Thomas
is a TKE member.
The national roll has been
threatened by problems such as
liability coverage, but Feldman
says that if it is held again,
Behrend will participate. "We're
lucky though," he said. "We'll
only have to roll it to Gannon (in
downtown Erie)--they'll have to
roll it all the way to Ohio."
