Hey! Put those back! The money in those jugs on the Mall is for giving, not taking. Project Volunteer has vowed to give ASU the royal beatdown in the form of the Penny Wars, a fund-raiser for the March of Dimes. The idea? Each class earns points by dumping as many pennies as they can into their container and as many silver coins and bills into their opponents' as they can afford. Pennies, good. Silver and green, bad. Lose some monetary weight between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Call Project Volunteer at 626-4906 for more information.
Have any stellar ideas about racist infrastructure? Then you are invited to the Roundtable Discussion with Robert Wistrich. At noon in the Tucson Room of the Student Union, the man will query "'Eliminationist Anti-Semitism'- Was There a Special German Road?" The talk is sponsored by the UA Medieval, Renaissance and Reformation Committee and the Committee on Judaic Studies. Contact Luise Betterton at 626-5448 for details.
Got any Fourth of July plans that revolve around Las Vegas? Or did you lose a substantial amount of money there over Spring Break? Either way, today is the opportunity to hone your poker skills while pretending that you are not having any fun. Why? Because Jeff Goldberg is going to give you the "Elements of Poker" from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Systems and Industrial Engineering Seminar. Hmmm. He's even going to reveal the secrets of how to win big moolah. If you want this precious knowledge, come to room 301 of Building 20 of the Engineering complex. Verify the legality by calling Helen Don at 621-6551.
You think the IMAX theater is cool? Their special effects are nothing compared to the show scheduled for tonight at Centennial Hall. Composer Philip Glass and director/designer Robert Wilson have collaborated and combined their talents to bring you "Monsters of Grace," a very crazy contemporary performance. It's got 3-D, it's got 70mm film, and it's sung in English-can't be beat. Take your $16, $22, or $28 seats at 7:30 p.m. Get your tickets by calling the Centennial Hall Box Office at 621-3341.
Tonight, and tonight only, Dr. Alyssa Goodman (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) will answer the burning question, "What Sculpts the Interstellar Medium?" Better yet, who chisels the likeness of the galactic soothsayer? (Sorry.) Anyhoo, she's lecturing as a service to the NOAO/KPNO/NSO/Steward Observatory and NRAO Joint Colloquium series. Join her in room N210 of the Steward Observatory at 4 p.m., but get your complimentary refreshments at 3:30 p.m. in room 204. Pat Breyfogle will answer your questions at 318-8115.
The German Film Series continues tonight with a showing of "Neben der Zeit," a film by Andreas Kleinert. The plot is a typical girl-meets-boy story, but with a post-German-unification twist. It will be projected onto the rather large screen of the Modern Languages Auditorium from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. for free. Get a hold of Barbara Kosta at 621-7389 for further information.
