A student-run club attempted to submit a forged receipt to the Finance Board, said Student Union Treasurer Choon Woo Ha 07. Ha would not reveal the clubs name, the motivations behind the forgery, or the identity of the club leader responsible.

Editorial: Show me the Money!

The F-Board has been meeting this past week to properly allocate funds to the many clubs at Brandeis during the Regular Marathon period. Last years successful SAF amendment to allocate more money to more clubs made it clear that the Union and the F-Board wanted to work with students in an attempt to make their stay at Brandeis more enjoyable. The referendum, drafted by members of the Union states, All Union documents and records shall be public knowledge and made available for inspection to any member of the Union by the Secretary.

Women’s basketball have up and down week

Brandeis women's basketball coach Carol Simon once described the game as one of peaks and valleys. The key, she stated, was limiting the opponent's peak runs while extending the team's own breaks. In a slop filled Sunday afternoon, little went right for the Judges as they followed up Fridays narrow 52-50 win over Chicago with a disappointing 45-51 defeat at the hands of Washington University.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change came out with a report last week that hopefully put to rest any of the unexplainable hope that some in this country had about our role (as humans) in contributing to the now noticeable trends in Global Warming. Basically, there is absolutely no way that anyone can justify future ignorance to the problem by stating that there is some sort of controversy within the scientific community about Global Warming, as definitive proof of this disturbing future of the planet has now been put before us.
