The issue of Indian mascotts

at Uni was brought up

in Student Court recently.A .

woman from leadership brought

the issue to the Court. The

Student Court made a recomendation

to the Student senate

that t~ey take some action

in this question. The Student

Senate,in their normally

efficient manner postponed

making any decision, therefore

no change has been made.

The Red Tide believes that

the Student Senate should take

immediate .action in changing

·the mascotts of Uni to names

other than Indian ones, and

that since Uni has helped distort

the truth about the

Indians, that the Senate take

·action to initiate programs

that will tell the truth about

the Indians.

America has not always been

the polluted, ugly, shit-hole

that it is today. Nor is the

area where Uni stands always

been the disgusting travesty

of the word “education” that

it is now. For Uni used to

belong to the Indians, and .

all of the u.s. was once inhabited

by Indians. At Uni

mascotts are called the

•warrior”, “Chief Mud-in-theFace•

and other degrading

symbols of America’s racism

and contempt for a race which

did not believe ·in owning

land or food or water, but

one that shared and one in.

which there was room for all,

which lived without destroying

the world around it.

The Indians were not the

•murdering, theiving, savages”

that are portrayed on TV, but

r~ther were a people who\;

l1ves were not selfish or

centered around. individuals

but rather were a people who

cared for each ether, _the

sick, the old, the helpless;

all worked for each other.

·A person can have no idea

as to how grotesque the

Uni hi stereotypes of

Indians really are,· until

you have looked at the ideas

and ways of life of White

American society; and that

of the Indfans. White society

is geared to make peopae

selfish and individualistic.

The whole basis of .our society

is exploitation:•screw any.



one you have to-as long as

you make money.• People

give others as little as

possible regardless of what

they can afford. All of these

things and many more have

been drilled into us by way

of TV, magazines, the pape~

and most of all by the

schools. It is not hard tosee

that these aspects create

unhealthy people, both ·

mentally and physically.

Thousands of people have

nervous breakdowns and go

insane everyday as a result

of this system.White society

does not care at all for the

earth and. recklessly destroys

it for profit. These are many

of the things that compose

a Capitalist society, an

example of which America

readily provides.

The Indians had a primitive

communist society in which

the land was for people to

use, but not to abuse. There

was a balance of nature and

tnere was ‘food and clothing

for all. Co-operation was the

~ssence of this society and

the Indians were a strong

pe~le living happy lives.

These two societies are

completely contradictory

to one another. For Uni Hi

to use Indians as mascotts

and names is a rascist

mockery of all that the

Indians were. ·

The u.s. broke almost

every treaty that it made with

the Indians. The Indians

trusted the whites as people

and the whites destroyed

them as gratitude. So the

Indians finally learned

that they could not trust

the whites and that all

the whites wanted was their

land. They· fought to the

end to preserve their

culture, way:of life and

lvies. Who can say that

this was unjustified?

The media has for years

along with the textbooks,

portrayed the Indians as

the “bad guys•, but what

made the Indians “bad guys”?

oppressed peoples of Viet

The administration has

said that the paper is controlled

even written by people oth7r

l).On page 2 of our last issue

we made the mistake of saying

that Bomer Gansz or Junhke

have the power to keep the

pigs off our campus. The administration

does not have

the actual power to keep the

pigs off campus, but we believe

that they have enough influence

to a~k the pigs to

stay off campus, and that if

they do come on that they

·would be notified in advance.

We are not talking about. ·the

uniformed pigs that are easy

to see, but rather the narcs

and informer& that have busted

numerous people at school

·this past school year.

2). On page 10 it was stated

that the principal of Hami is

a token chicana. This is not

true. She is a tokeri CUban

refugee. We apologize for this

bit of racism on our part,

~rid we feel it shows that all

of us have been brainwashed

to the point where we view

all Spanish speaking people

in this area as Chicano.

HOW TO USE IT- unroll the

rubber on an erect penis j·.tst

before intercourse, not just

before ejaculation. The first

few drops of semen ofte~ contain

enough sperm to cause

pregnancy. When the penis is

withdrawn, the man must hold

onto the rim of the rubber.

If the rubber slips off during

intercourse, hold the open

end shut and then take it otr· ..

If the rubber is not prerolled

it should be rolled before ‘

use and leave ~ in. at the end

to collect sperm. When insertin

the penis the man should avoid

catching the extension or teat

on the outside of the vagina,

since it is possible to thrust

a hole through the side of the

rubber if the tip becomes

caught. Occasionally there is

insufficient moisture in the

vagina to allow for easy entry

<:;f the penis, expecially it it

~s covered by a dry rubber.

Forcing the penis into a rel~

atively dry vagina can be uncomfortable

and irritating for

the woman. Such problems can

be avoided by the use of a

lubricant or a pre-lubricated

rubber, permicidal foam,

cream, or jelly. Other non

greasy jellies, such as sur•

gical jelly can be used. Saliva

is the most readily available

and cheapest lubricant

there is. Vaseline or any

kind of petroleum jelly or oil

should never be applied to

rubber condoms, since these

materials destroy rubber. Unless

a pre-lubricated rubber is

used the lubricant is applied .

Basically the school

system isolates us from each

step to having us compete with

each other. Th.e classroom is

Students dent learn to educate

amongst themselves. The only

real ~ducation you learn to

:regard as satisfactory is that

‘>ihich you get when you consult

the teacher. So you learn to

compete with fellow students

nobody listens to the other
