Vexation: Resources
wasted in clothing produc-
tion.

Solution: Thrift shop-
ping not only keeps cloth-
ing out of landfills and
cuts back on waste, also it
saves resources that would
have been used in produc-
tion had you decided to buy
your new winter wardrobe
at the mall. Plus, it helps
put a dent in the problem
of worldwide sweatshops.

Implementation:
Thrift stores abound in
the area. I've made some
killer finds at the Samari-
tan Center in Collegedale.
The Goodwill (by the Rave
Theater, off I-24) and



America's Thrift Store (by
McKay's, on Old Lee High-
way) can also produce some
good finds.

Clarification: If the
treasure hunt that is thrift
shopping is a bit too time-
consuming for you, hy
shops like Plato's Closet
(200 Hamilton Place Blvd.
Chattanooga), which are
generally smaller and more
selective with the items
they carry. If you're still
feeling snobby about thrift
shopping, then the least
you could do is donate the
clothes you no longer wear
to a local thrift store. The
Samaritan Center sets up a
donation center on campus
at the end of the year.

Rebels, Unity win fourth straight title



Ldjski Cherisol
SuhlWhuer



History took place Saturday
night as hundreds of students
and supporting family mem-
bers gathered for the annual
All Night Softball games. Out
of the 37 teams that participat-
ed, only two managed to write
their names in Southern's soft-
ball hall of fame.

"Its nice to be in a college
where there's all night soft-
ball," said Kati Britton, a pub-
lic relations broadcast major
from Union College. "Every-
one is very high school spir-
ited"

Despite everyone being
excited about All Night Soft-
ball, the cold air had many in
| sweaters and blankets with
I temperatures as low as 52 de-
grees.

"I will be here all night un-
; til it is over," said Mike Boyd,
assistant professor of physical
I education. "If everybody in
(school is down here and hap-
1 py, then I'm a happy man."
I For the fourth year in a row,
■the Men's A League Champi-
lonship hosted the Rebels, and
the Women's A League Cham-
Jpionship hosted Team Unity.
*Both teams accomplished four
Rhampionship appearances
I and broke records in Southern

sports history.
m Team Unity defeated Team
BB in an interesting match that

displayed Unity's strength and
hustle in the women's softball
division.

The men's championship
game was tight the first two
innings until Rebels' power
house, Brent Ford, hit a two-
run home run to get the team'
going. By the top of the fifth
it was 7-1 with Team Fresco
against the ropes until Alex
Bolanos stepped up to cut the
deficit to 7-4.

As the freshness began to
come back to Fresco, Rebels'
James Herod and Ryan Haag
hit back to back home runs.
Ford came to the plate yet
again and hit a three-run home
run to boost the lead. Despite
the Rebels' phenomenal bat-
ting, Team Fresco fought back.
Fresco's Andy Johnson hit a
two-run home run and Cesar



Bernardino hit a home run to
bring the score to 12-7. Fresco
left it all on the field, but it
wasn't enough to match the
firepower of the Rebels.

Winning another champi-
onship did not cover the dis-
appointment for the Rebels
dynasty since this will be their
last year playing together. All
but one of their players is a
graduating senior.

"It's sad because it'll be an
end of an era," said Eric Otis, a
senior business management
major.

The games started at 8:30
p.m. and did not end until 7: 30
a.m. on Sunday. Though tired,
students walked back to their
dormitories, proud to say they
attended Southern during the
years of the prowess of Unity
and Rebels softball.



Matsuzaka to
open for Red
Sox against Rays

BOSTON (AP) Daisuke Mat-
suzaka will be on the mound
Eg the Red Sox when the
AL championship series be-
gins Friday night against the
Tampa Bay Rays.That doesn't
make him Boston's ace.
Josh Beckett is still No. 1 in the
Red Sox rotation — especially
during the playoffs — even
though he had the worst out-
ing of the three Boston start-
ers who faced the Los Angeles
Angels in the firstround. Beck-
ett, coming off a strained side



muscle, is scheduled to pitch
Game 2 in the best-of-seven
series against the Rays.
"Before Beckett's last start, he
was the best postseason pitch-
er maybe in the history of the
game," Red Sox manager Ter-
ry Francona said Wednesday
after announcing his rotation.
"He had the audacity to be a
little rusty after two weeks. We
don't need to run away from
Beckett, we need to get him on
arun."

Francona chose Matsuzaka to
start against the Rays in Game
1 not because of Beckett's in-
jury, and certainly not because
the team lost any faith in a guy
who won five straight postsea-



son outings before Boston's
Game 3 loss to the Angels.
Even with his off night versus
L.A., Beckett is 6-2 with a 2.09
ERA in his postseason career.
Instead, Francona said, the
Red Sox scheduled Beckett
for the second game because
it would give him, Matsuzaka
and Game 3 starter Jon Lester
essentially the same amount
of rest. Tim Wakefield will
start Game 4, with Matsuza-
ka, Beckett and Lester ready
to pitch again in Games 5-7 if
necessary.

"Nobody's going to throw
three," Francona said. "So
having those three twice is re-
ally what's important, regard-

Faculty Humor




We here at South-
ern are blessed with
many wonderful pro-
fessors, but one hard-
ly gets a chance to see
what type of humor
interests different
types of prjfessors.
Let's ask them!



"In business humor is useful, you can
use it to defuse really tense situations,
but you have to know when to use it.

"If you use advanced social skills, hu-
mor can be used to loosen people up a
bit.

"People think that accountants aren't
funny, but we're people, too, not just
mindless robots doing credits and deb-
its."

-Kimberiy Miller, assistant for the
School of Business and Management

Famous humor

"Humor is the only test of
gravity, and gravity of humor;
for a subject which will not bear
raillery is suspicious, and a jest
which will not bear serious ex-
amination is false wit."
-Aristotle

"I was recently on a tour of
Latin America, and the only
regret I have was that I didn't
study Latin harder in school
so I could converse with those
people."

-Dan Quayle, former
senator of Indiana

"The recipe for perpetual
ignorance is: be satisfied with
your opmions and content with
your knowledge."

-filbert Hubbard

brother, father



THE STUDENT VOICE SINCE 1926



Emily Young



Douglas Pyke, the 37-year-
old -son of Helen Pyke, an
English professor at Southern,
has been charged with capital
murder for shooting and kill-
ing his father and brother. The
bodies of Teddy Pyke, Helen
Pyke's ex-husband, and her
oldest son Greg were found on
Oct. 10, according to the Asso-
ciated Press.

After the incident, other
professors in the English de-
partment taught Helen Pyke's
classes until midterm break.
They were prepared to take
over her classes for the rest
of the semester if she needed
the time off, said Jan Haluska,
chair of the English depart-
ment. However, the Monday
after fall break, Helen Pyke
came back to work.

"She walked in beautifully
calm and ready to teach," Ha-
luska said.
