Get in the face of the law today at the Twentieth Isaac Marks Memorial Lecture. The College of Law is asking you to join Bruce A.

As affirmative action alone proves, discrimination is not found solely on the street. Unfortunately, it often invades the "safe haven" of academia. Ivy Goduka, professor at Central Michigan University, will address this issue today from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Kiva Auditorium of the College of Education. Her talk on "Power, Culture and Language in the Academy: Race and Gender Matter" is free and open to all, courtesy of the Africana Studies Department. Get more information by calling 621-5665.
Do you fantasize about fame, fortune, and ridiculously rigorous rehearsal schedules?

Seven vigorous and vibrant female actors are needed to play various roles and ages. Be prepared with 16 bars of a show song and 16 bars of a country or folk song. And know how to shake it. Take your shot between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. in room 125 of the Drama building. Call Richard Hanson at 621-7008 to make the necessary appointment.
Most Tucsonans shudder at the thought of our desert landscape looking anything like industrialized Phoenix. Come to today's Tucson Audubon Society's meeting to find like-minded individuals. Bill Branan (director of the Society's Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch) will present the Arizona Common Ground Roundtable, a panel of ranchers and environmentalists who are working together (for once) to ask, "What Future for Arizona's Open Spaces?" Help them find an answer between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. in the DuVal Auditorium of the University Medical Center. Call Kevin Dahl at 622-5622 for more information.
It seems the Journalism Department has taken a hint from the College of Law - it, too, will be holding an annual lecture this evening. Tom Rosenstiel (director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism) will be the keynote speaker at the Seventh Annual William R. Mathews Ethics in Journalism Lecture, in the Arizona Ballroom of the Student Union at 7 p.m. He will be highlighting "The Core Ethical Values of Journalism." Call the Journalism Department at 621-7556 for further information.
Though paying $2.50 for a movie at Gallagher Theatre is far better than shelling out $7.50 at the local movie house, catching a flick for free is still the greatest pleasure. Tonight, you can do just that. The Eye on Diversity Foreign Film Cycle is making yet another revolution at Gallagher at 7:30 p.m. only. Catch the free special engagement showing of Kryzystof Kiewlowski's "Blue," part of the "Blue, White, Red" Trilogy, for merely arriving early and standing in line. Questions? Call 621-4678.
