Tonight's your first opportunity to find out just why the bike routes have been all screwed up this week. Want the answer? Then be on the Mall any time from 4 p.m. to midnight to experience Spring Fling, a huge hodgepodge of games, rides, food and whatnot. It's Wristband Night, which means you can drop $18 at one time instead of paying for each individual thrill. Bring the kids - children under 7 get in free. Get the rest of the details by calling the Spring Fling committee at 621-5610.
According to Dr. Scott P. Carroll (University of California, Davis), "Rapid adaptation to new host plants in the soapberry bug suggests the importance of ongoing evolution to ecology."

In the usual conqueror's manner, some inhabitants of the Southwest region have exploited native resources for their personal gain and touted them as their property, which is conceivably wrong, especially if you're the one being taken advantage of. This all raises the issue of "The Real Culture Wars: Who Controls Cultural Resources in the Southwest?" Jane H. Hill is prepared to present the arguments tonight at the New Directions in Southwestern Anthropology Public Lecture Series. She'll be in room 103 of the Center for English as a Second Language building a 7:30 p.m. to say her piece and take your questions. This is the Arizona State Museum and Department of Anthropology's gift to you. Extend all personal thank-yous and direct all questions to Suzanne Fish at 626-8290.
