Belinda J. Lovett, NEWS & FEATURES EDITOR
double major or not to double major?" was the question proposed
by student government facilitators Kyle Staller '04 and Jennifer
Cromwell '01 at the last Common Hour, a Campus Crosstalk debate
sponsored by Student Government.
The debate addressed the question of whether
or not double majoring is "contrary to the goals of a liberal arts
education." John Turner, a professor in the romance languages department,
and John Hahn '01 debated in favor of double majoring. Clifton Olds,
a professor in the art history department, and Dominique Alepin
'03 debated against it.

an open forum earlier this month, students and faculty met to discuss
a future new look and feel for Bowdoin's online presence. The forum
was held with the web-designing firm Smash Advertising, affiliated
with Jan Krakowski and Co. of New York City.
In today's increasingly electronic world, a website
is vital to a college, not only for prospective students who rely
increasingly on online information and applications, but also for
alumni who keep in touch with the college through the internet.

sophomore Tom Scifres was arrested in front of Burnett House on
Tuesday, November 21 and charged with obstructing government administration,
police reports indicate.
Brunswick Police Sergeant Tom Ridlon had pulled
over a red Honda owned by an unidentified teenager in front of the
social house, and, according to witnesses, Scifres stood by as the
officer searched the vehicle. Scifres was asked
twice by the officer to go inside the house, and when he refused,
Ridlon placed him under arrest, witnesses said.
