Each year the Watson Foundation awards around seventy fellowships to seniors chosen from fifty small colleges (including Caltech). The remuneration of $10,000 (current) for a single student or $14,000 for a married coupIe assists in travel and study for twelve months outside the United States. Last Monday, the Dean of undergraduate students, Gary Lorden, and the Associate Dean, Jeanne Noda, were accompanied by 1984 Watson winner Don Fossgreen to answer questions on the nature of the Award. Applicants should ideally have had a long standing fascination with a certain project, which may or may not be related to the students' work at school. A key question asked in an interview is, "If we give you the Award, will you take it?" The point is that the
portant that one would happily defer entry to employment or Graduate School. Due this Monday, October 21st, is a written project proposal, of around two-and-a-half pages in length, to be handed in at the Dean's Office. This submission need not be in its final form. There is a final deadline of November 25 for the proposal, and also a personal statement of comparable length, with interviews in February. The important things to exhibit in these statements are enthusiasm, and the specialness and relevance of one's proposal to one's whole life. The statements should be lively and interesting to read, and, crucially, the proposal should be flexible enough to respond to unexpected changes. In a fundamental sense the award is given to the person and not the specific proposal.

Saturday, October 19 is SURF Day at Caltech. During the past summer, 126 Caltech undergraduates spent their summer vacations SURFing in Pasadena; Columbus, Ohio; Cape Town, South Africa; and Geneva, Switzerland. These students are part of the Summer undergraduate research Fellowships (SURF) program, and they will present seminars about their research projects on SURF Day. The talks, which are open to the public, will take place in classrooms in Dabney Hall, Baxter Hall, Spalding Laboratory, and Thomas Laboratory on the Caltech campus between 1:30 and 4:30 pm. A complete. schedule will be
available in Dabney Garden before the talks begin. The Caltech SURF program is a unique educational opportunity for undergraduate students. They propose a research project in collaboration with a faculty member or JPL technical staff member. Those students who are awarded SURFs-and a high percentage of them do because they work so closely with the faculty members in developing the proposalscarryo out their work in a tutorial relationship with their sponsors. At the conclusion of the summer,. the SURFers prepare a written report, and on SURF Day they give an oral presentation about their projects to continued on page 2

Deanne Noda
by Diana Foss If you were at Frosh Camp, you've probably already met her. If not, then you should know that Caltech has a new Associate Dean, and that her name is Jeanne Noda. The position of Associate Dean was traditionally held by a member of the faculty; Noda's appointment represents the first time Caltech has chosen a professional to fill the spot. She comes to Tech from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where for the past three years she was the director of the Master of Business Administration program. Before that she was the assistant Dean of the business school at Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to her work in college administration, she was a social worker, specializing in outpatient therapy. Becoming Caltech's assistant Dean wasn't something that Noda was really planning. Last spring, she and her husband decided to accept a transfer that moved his job from Illinois to southern California. In April, she read an ad in the Chronicle ofHigher Education that announced the position. Noda applied soley through the ad, which warned applicants to "be prepared for unusual hours," and went through a series of interviews once she and her family relocated here in July. One of the more telling interviews was with the members of the IHe. They asked why she would be willing to go from a position where she was the head of a large department, to a rather "outlying" position where she is subordinate to the Dean of Students. Her response is that she has a "gut feeling" that Caltech is the right place for her, "an extraordinary place." She was impressed with how much
the people here care for students, and that the faculty don't look at their administrative duties as unavoidable drudgeries. Caltech's small size was also a plus in her eyes; University of Illinois' student population is 28,000, and Washington University's, which she considered small, is 12,000. Jeanne Noda's goals as Associate Dean include, first and foremost,. understanding the place that is Caltech. She feels comfortable with the new students, having talked to all of them at Camp, but she has yet to become involved with most of the upperclass students. She also sees as necessary the creation of the position of Student Advocate, to provide a
mediator between the students and the administration. Noda sees the students as vital to the Institute, but thinks that too often the students are unaware of their importance and power. She is impressed with the good ideas that she has heard from students she had talked to, and wants them to speak up and get noticed. The main problem that Noda sees with student life at Caltech is that too often students get caught up in inter-house aggression. She wants students to leave here feeling as though they belong to Caltech as a whole, and not just to a particular house. All Jeanne Noda really wants is for students to have fun.
Social Notes by Sam Wang Welcome back, everyone! In case you haven't heard, the annual Caltech-JPL Disneyland trip is Sunday, October 20, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Signups have come down, but there are still some tickets available.

by David B. Ritchie This Saturday, October 19 from 9 am to 4 pm, the Caltech Amateur Radio Club will have an open house to show off its newly renovated radio shack, branClub. All equipment is now state of the art, the shack has been repainted, carpeted and made into a very comfortable place to operate the club's radios from. The club has equipment to operate on all short wave amateur frequencies as well as many bands in the VHF, UHF and microwave regions of the spectrum. The Radio Club was founded in 1918, just after the ban on amateur radio was lifted after World War I. Since that time the Radio Club has been a going concern devoted to training members of the Caltech community to be skilled radio operators and teaching them skills in radio frequency electronics. The club is committed to providing emergency communications as necessary. The Radio Club helped dozens of people make contact with relatives and friends within the stricken areas of Mexico during the recent communications blackout in continu~ on page 3

A rather brisk warm-up for Wednesday's exercises, you might say. Way to be, Big Red! Frosh elections got a bit out of hand, as our new Frankenstein's monster attempted to shower everyone but Isaac.

A hearty welcome was extended to 37 frosh and four transfers, complete with lots of water. Hassle Week went as expected- the wimpy freshmen failed in discovering the identity of the pledgemaster and succeeded in being washed by the ugly sophomores. Alter several days of carrying around rocks and being showered at will, the frosh wised up and sought the help of the seniors. The seniors cleaned up-Bungo "Nathan" and ya Paul-key got a six of Swiss Lowy each for doing nothing. By Friday, everone was convinced that Mike Warren was the pledgemaster, but noooooo, Huev'os was too swift for all but the seniors, who knew all along that the pledgemaster was none other than Lloyd "Sucks" "Is he a Rudd?"

Special Elections! Radio Club IENTERTAINMENTI from page 1
A special election to fill the position of Editor of The California Tech, so rudely vacated by Matt Rowe, will be held all day Monday 21 October. There will be ballots and ballot boxes in all house lounges and in Winnett Lounge. You may vote for one of the teams whose statements follow, orfor No. Ifa runoff election turns out to be necessary, it will be held Friday 25 October Peter Ashcroft Paul Gillespie We feel that the office of Editor for this newspaper is an extremely important job which, if performed correctly, will require hard work, dedication, and a lot of imagination. We feel that working as a team we have the potential to put together a consistently good newspaper and provide the Caltech community with journalism that it will find both interesting and informative. Both of us have been involved with a wide variety of activities on campus and represent a very diverse cross section of the student body, including both the north and south houses. We are both seniors and are quite aware of the responsibility which this office entails. We feel, however, that with our best efforts we can both
generate enthusiasm for our school newspaper and deliver quality journalism to all of you. Jens Peter Alfke Tylis Chang Diana Foss John Fourkas Since three of us comprise most of the newspaper staff, we are very experienced in putting out The California Tech, the very newspaper you are now reading, each and every week. Together with our new recruit, Tylis, we hope to continue putting out a great paper. We've been instrumental in creating substantial improvements in both the look and content of the Tech, and we plan to continue indepth coverage of campus events (there are a lot of changes in the works that we will report on), quality entertainment reviews, massive sports coverage, and of course Bloom County. We're proud of the Tech, and we hope you will give us the opportunity to continue to put out a fine newspaper. Thank You! Tim Allen Tom Tucker [No statement received.]

Rick Wakeman
by John Fourkas Rick Wakeman Keystone Theatre Palo Alto September 14 Concerts at nightclubs can be a lot of fun. The place is usually small, so the seats are generally very good. The sound doesn't have to be turned up past the point of clarity, and the band is in good contact with the audience. There is usually some "required" number of drinks to buy, but this limit is rarely enforced (it is rather hard to keep track of these things in a big crowd, after all). Well, all of this is simply theoretical. In practice, things don't always work out so well. Take the Keystone Theatre in Palo Alto, for example ... I got to this particular concert a couple of hours early, and so I was behind less than ten people in line. This entitled me to a front row seat. Here comes catch number one - the club had rows of tiny round tables going parallel to the stage, with four chairs around each. This meant, of course, that two people in each group of four had to either face away from the stage or not use the table. To make matters worse, the bouncer kept coming by and shoving everybody together to make room for the cocktail waitress. This all occurred at eight o'clock, and the concert was due to begin at nine. Although no warmup band had been advertised, we were informed by the bouncer that a local band called Domino Theory would play for thirty minutes. We took advantage of our free time to survey the theatre. There was a dance floor about twenty feet in front of the stage, and it quickly became apparent that our "front row" seats were no great bargain. Sure enough, as the tables filled, wayward souls clogged the dance floor in front of us. Luckily, the tables were all on a raised platform, so the view wasn't too bad. Our scrutiny shifted to the acoustic design of the club. The building is long and narrow, with a high arched ceiling. It was quite a bit like an aircraft hangar, as a matter of fact - a fine environment for good sound. Of course, the ceiling held no acoustical tiles, only cheap black paint. The stage was set for a fine evening. By nine fifteen, the crowd was a little bit restless. How late was the concert going to last if the first band hadn't even come out yet? By nine thirty, people began to cheer
every time a song ended in the canned music they played. By nine forty-five, the lights had gone out, and Domino Theory was about to play. By ten, the crowd was sick of them. I must say that this was the most lifeless band I have ever seen. The drummer wore headphones, closed his eyes, hung his mouth open, and pounded away oblivious to the world. The guitarist looked bored with the whole event - but then again, the only discernible sound was the drums anyway. The only musician with any animation at all was the bassist/vocalist. His vocals were utterly muddled and he had to single-handedly try to paddle his band out of the swamp. The current was against him, howeverthe acoustics were horrible, the band clearly didn't have a sound man, and the crowd wasn't there to hear a second-rate pop band playing poor dance music. It was a bad scene all around. When Rick Wakeman came on, however, all was forgiven. Rick Wakeman started his musical career at an early age as a concert pianist, and he won many awards. When he began attending the Royal College of Music, however, he realized that he couldn't compete with the biggest and brightest in the classical business. As a result of this, he began doing some studio work for rock bands, which gave him some of the freedom he was searching for. His most notable studio work in this era (1969-71) includes David Bowie's Space Oddity, Lou Reed's first solo album, and the incredible piano solo in Cat Stevens' "Morning Has Broken." During this time he also happened to do some studio work for the Strawbs, a king of electrified folk band. They liked Wakeman so much that they invited him to join, and all of a sudden both Wakeman and the Strawbs were big news on the music scene. Wakeman had an aversion to folk music, however, and was never too happy with the band. Thus, when Yes asked him to join them in 1972, he decided to take the chance. It was with Yes that Wakeman first gained a large following. At almost the same time, he signed a solo contract with A&M Records, and in 1973 he released his first solo album, The Six Wives of King Henry VII/. Since that time, Wakeman has left Yes twice (and permanently), and has put out many solo albums. His last album with A&M was Rhap-
sodies, which was· released in
1979. Since then, he has done work

for an English label, and his newer records are hard to find in America. His newest album, Silent Night, was released earlier this year in England, and has recently
been released in this country. Thus,

BUCKAROO RfVI[W~
A HIGHLY IRREGULAR COLUMN BY MATT ROWE
Mr. Palomar Italo Calvino Translated by William Weaver Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Hardcover, $12.95 Italo Calvino's first work of fic- tion since 1979's acclaimed Ifon a winter's night a traveler at first seems a retreat from the literary extravagances of that work. Where in the earlier book we found the opening chapters of not one but ten novels-spy stories, metaphysical meanderings, and steamy tales of passion - couched between episodes of the Reader's search for the "true" novel, in Mr. Palomar we find only the small-scale explorations of Mr. Palomar, "a nervous man who lives in a frenzied and congested world." It should come as no surprise to Mr. Calvino's readers that, on closer observation, Mr. Palomar is as full of passion and profundity as any of his previous works. Mr. Palomar (who does, indeed, take his name from our very own observatory) is an observer. He has only just discovered his vocation, though, as the book opens, and is still unsure just how to go about observing. In the second episode (of twenty-seven), "The Naked Bosom," Mr. Palomar, waHdng along the beach, notices a woman sunbathing topless, and deliberately overlooks her. He reflects on his action and decides it represents a reinforcement of an outmoded conservatism. Walking past her a second time, he takes in the view of the woman's breasts as he would any other part of the landscape. But perhaps this signals a sense of male superiority. On a third pass, Mr. Palomar decides to appreciate the bared bosom as an object worth special consideration, in proportion to the pleasantness of the view. But no, thinks Mr. Palomar after trying that out-not only is this a pleasant sight-it is a woman's breast! On his fourth pass, in recognition of the relaxation of morals in modem times, in order to exercise a freedom once unavailable, Mr. Palomar resolves to concentrate on the bosom and all but ignore the surrounding view. "But the moment he approaches again," Mr. Calvino writes, "she suddenly springs up, covers herself with an impatient huff, and goes off, shrugging in irritation, as if she were avoiding the tiresome insistence of a satyr. ''The dead weight of an intolerant tradition prevents anyone's properly understanding the most enlightened intentions, Palomar bitterly concludes."
(It will be noted, of course, that I have chosen this sample of Mr. Palomar chiefly because of what will be seen as the sensationalistic value of the subject matter, despite its absurd conclusion. As the Irish poet Seamus Heaney noted on the front page of the New York Times book review, "[Mr. Calvino] knows that everybody ends up worrying about the same things anyhow. ") As we follow Mr. Palomar in his journey through the microcosm of what he observes, we often see him inflating the significance of these observations. Over the course of the book, however, he progresses in the practice of his art, to the point where he can now notice this same inflation in others. In "Serpents and Skulls," Mr. Palomar, while visiting Toltec ruins in Mexico, finds himself repeatedly encountering a schoolteacher who, describing the pictographs to his students, continually concludes, "We don't know what it means." Mr. PaloMs traveling companion, an amateur archeologist, waxes indignant as he tours the ruins, while Palomar cannot choose between an uncertain specificity (archeological theories) and a general yetuseIess certainty ("We don't know what it means."). Finally, his friend confronts the teacher, and explains to his class the meaning of "The Wall of Serpents." "Not to interpret is impossible," Mr. Palomar realizes, "as refraining from thinking is impossible." He hears, however, from around the comer, the teacher once again: " 'No es verdad, it is not true, what that senor said. We do not know what they mean.' " It is rare to find a writer who can be intelligent without being stuffy, profound without being pompous. Italo Calvino was that, and a great storyteller, too. True, there is little action in the episodes of Mr. Palomar- but the sense of wonder they generate can be as thrilling as the spy stories and medieval romances Mr. Calvino had previously produced. Which is not to say Mr. Palomar is fluff. Consider the twenty-seventh and final episode, "Learning to be Dead." "Mr. Palomar decides that from now on, he will act as if he were dead, to see how the world gets along without him." The chief advantage of life over death, he decides at length, is that, while alive, one has the power to, as it were, clean up one's past; whereas dead people can no longer directly control their continued on page 5
Journey to the Center of the Earth
from page 3 Wakeman's magnificent stage presence. He is a classic jolly Englishman, telling jokes and keeping the crowd happy throughout his performance. He had keyboards set up at both ends of the stage, and' would switch sides often (sometimes in the middle of a song, even). At one point he even danced with his vocalist in his version of a Ginger Rogers/ Fred Astaire routine. Wakeman is truly a life-of-the-party type of person, and his personality made this concert one of the most fun I've ever attended. The music was divided almost evenly between material from his new album and material from his first three (The Six Wives of King Henry VIII, The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and Journey to the Center ofthe Earth).
It is interesting that he totally ignored a full nine albums' worth of material, although it has always been obvious that King Henry is his favorite album. It was also clear that he enjoyed the old material far more than the new. Although the new music was fine, it lacked the imagination, depth, and feeling of the early pieces. The crowd and the band thought the same thing. In fact, the only person who may not have concurred with this was the vocalist, who had no instrument to play. Through much of the older music he was relegated to playing a few percussion instruments. In fact, for most of the concert he seemed to be searching for an instrument to play - he spent most of his vocals making nightclub-style gesticulations having little to do with what he was singing. His vocals were fine, it's just that we all felt a bit sorry for him for not having anything else to do. He's in
good company, at any rate - Phil Collins often gives me the same impression. For his encore, Wakemaq donned one of his gaudy old cape~ and slipped into true form for a twenty minute synopsis of Journd to the Center of the Earth, san~ orchestra or choir.

Diwana? Sure!
by Peter Alike Diwana Vegetarian Cuisine of India 1381 E. Las Tunas; 287-8743 Diwana may look like your standard sandwich shop/deli, but the food is authentically Indian and extremely yummy. It's a good thing all three of us were pretty hungry when we went, as we were seduced by the menu into ordering a whole pile of food. First came the samosas, India's contribution to the universal turnover concept: deep-fried triangles of flaky dough, filled with spiced vegetables and potato. After inhaling these, we dove into the.Masala Dossa: a large crepe made from fermented beans (actually quite delicious; sour and salty) rolled up and filled with mashed potatoes and onions. This came with chutney and a spicy sauce, into which we dipped both the Dossa and the Gobhi Paratha-an Indian flat bread filled with cauliflower. As if that wasn't enough, we
also had a hot and spicy pea curry served with mashed potato patties (Ragda patties) and rice cooked with vegetables, nuts and raisins (Vegetable Biryani). All this we washed down with Lassi- a sweet yogurt drink much like a thin rnilkshake. (Mango rnilkshakes are apparently also available.) If our little pig-out session reflects the rest of Diwana's offerings, then what we have here is a truly bitchen culinary experience for anyone who even thinks they might enjoy Indian food. The food is flavorful and spicy without being dangerously so, and complex enough in flavor that the absence of meat (much Indian food is, in fact, vegetarian) is inconsequential. By all means check this place out! Diwana is located at 1381 E. lAs Tunas, (818)287-8743. Watch out: it's closed Tuesdays. To get there, take San Pasqual east to Rosemead, Rosemead south a ways to lAs Tunas, then go west about a block. It's fifteen minutes away.
Mr. Palomar from page 4 influence on the iiving world. Eventually, of course, the world will end. " 'If time has to end, it can be described, instant by instant' Mr. Palomar thinks, 'and each instant, when described, expands so that its end can no longer be seen.' He decides that he will set himself to describing every instant of his life, and until he has described them all he will no longer think of being dead. At that moment he dies." Halo Calvino died on 19 September in Italy of complications following a stroke. He would have been sixty-two last Tuesday. As an Italian Resistance fighter during World War II, Mr. Calvino collected the experiences which formed the basis for his first novel, The Path to the Nest o/Spiders (1947). In the '50s, he turned more and more to fantasy, producing the trilogy Our Ancestors (The Nonexistent Knight, The Baron in the Trees, and The Cloven Viscount) and the tremendous compendium Italian Folktales. His short stories and novellas, such as those in Dif ficult Loves and The Watcher and Other Stories, continued in a realistic vein, while his longer works ("novels" is hardly appropriate) turned more to speculative fiction. Invisible Cities (1971) and Ifon a winter's night a traveler (1979) are regarded as masterpieces. Mr. Calvino was also an editor of a literary magazine in the '40s and '50s, and later worked for one of the larger Italian publishing houses. He had been awarded some of Italy's (and some of the world's) highest literary honors in his career, and was at his death seen as perhaps Italy's greatest writer; he was certainly its most popular. Mr. Calvino was a quiet, unassuming man, and he need not worry, like Mr. Palomar, that his reputation might suffer after his death. He

Fussball by Doug Roberts The Caltech soccer team continued its winning ways with a 2-0 overtime victory over Christ College Irvine.. After playing ninety minutes of scoreless soccer, the CCI coach, desperately seeking his first victory of the season, begged and pleaded for the game to go into overtime. He played right into the hands of the Caltech squad, who had clearly dominated regulation time play. Five minutes into the first overtime period, halfback Konstantin Othmer, who hadn't played earlier in the game due to illness, lobbed a long, high shot that floated right into the back of the net. Then midway through the second overtime, John Josephson scored a goal from inside the penalty area that sealed CCl's fate, and the score stood at 2-0. On Wednesday, the Caltech booters saw less success. With illness keeping the most offensive Techers off the field, PomonaPitzer scored a 4 - 1 victory over the Beavers. John Henry Scott, filling in for an ailing Randall Bownd, scored the sole .Caltech goal of the day. The Caltech side showed improving teamwork and hope for a victory tomorrow at Redlands.

ISPORTSI Football from page 7 The score remained 9 - 0 until halftime. The half started with another Caltech drive, this time culminated by a 35-yard Brown off-tackle touchdown. Don Thomas made the score 17 - 0 with a two point conversion. Another Collins field goal ended the third quarter. During the fourth quarter, La Verne completed two long bombs, one for a touchdown and the other to set up a score. After that, Caltech again shut them down. The next home game is tomorrow at I: 30 pm against the Freelancers, another semi-pro team. It should be another victory for Caltech despite injuries to several key starting players: quarterback Aram Kaloustian, strong safety Don Thomas, and nose guard Mike Burl. All fans are appreciated. X-Country from page 7 day, the Beavers handily defeated Christ College's small but talented team. Last meet, C.LT. faced conference rivals Redlands, Whittier and La Verne on a very tough Whittier course. Though Tech wiped out La Verne and Whittier, they could not overcome the large Redlands squad (or Team Chiquita, as they are also known). Though beaten badly by Redlands, CIT has a strong chance of overtaking them at the upcoming conference meet. On a lighter note, it seems that several male and female runners had very interesting experiences at the La Verne-Oxy meet. In their tireless pursuit of intellectual knowledge, our gallant runners decided to hold. In next week's Tech, look for reviews of the team's individual perfonnances this year, and results of a tri-meet with Whittier and west coast powerhouse Cal State San Berdoo.

During the past week, the Caltech Beavers have continued in their pursuit of dominating the pool. Over the weekend the Beavers split squads and won three of five possible games, then on Wednesday beat Chapman in an exciting game. Last Saturday, Clatech hosted its first JV tournament. After Pomona-Pitzer backed out, Coach Dodd decided that everyone needed playing time, so he split the team into two squads, upperclassmen and frosh. At 8:30 am, the weary frosh slipped into the pool to face the Whittier Poets. Luckily for the frosh, Whittier had come without a goalie and had to use Bruno as their goalie. The frosh played a great game and won quite handily. The next game was the upperclassmen versus Claremont. With Fred Ferrante behind
won this game also. At 11:30, the frosh came back to play Claremont. Although outmatched, they played for all they were worth. Unfortunately, it was not worth quite enough and Caltech had its first loss of the day. In the next game, Coach Dodd was nice enough to lend Whittier our starting goalie, Fred Ferrante. In a tough game, in which Vince Ferrante could notget the ball past his brother, the upperclassmen went down in defeat. The last game of the day was the upperclassmen versus the frosh. In a good game by both classes, the more experienced upperclassmen did come out with a victory, saving themselves much embarrassment. On Wednesday, Chapman College came to visit the Beavers in their home water. In the last meeting, at the Riverside Tournament, Caltech lost by one goal.
hole man, and frosh that day, the outlook was much better for this game. Chapman got off to a quick 3-0 lead in the first three minutes. From then on, however, it was almost all Caltech. About halfway through the fourth quarter and up by 4 goals, the starters began to leave the game. At this point Fred played some of the most inspired goal ever witnessed by this reporter. It was so great that chants of "Fred, Fred, Fred" echoed throughout the pool area. The final score in this Caltech victory was 16 - 11. Tomorrow is the Caltech Invitational from 8:30 until 4:30. At 8:30 Caltech plays Whittier, at 11:30, U.C. Riverside, and at 3:30 the Beavers play Redlands. Come out and cheer us on in what may be some of the best water polo of the year.
