Were you glad of the chance to shake your booty on the Mall yesterday at lunchtime? Then you'll be even more thrilled to know that the beats don't stop. Today, from noon to 1 p.m., the Staff Advisory Council will once again be presenting Music on the Mall. From noon to 12:15 p.m., Suenos Tangos will take the stage; from 12:15 p.m. to 12:30 p.m., it belongs to Grupo de Danzas Folkloricos de Panama; and, from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m., the Composition Blues Band will wrap the show up. The Staff Advisory Council can give you the details of you call them at 621-9947.

Math, apparently, is a top-secret thing. Instead of giving you the whole numerical enchilada, George G. Roussas (University of California, Davis) has selected a few noteworthy bits of information to share with you at today's Statistics Colloquium. From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Room 200 of the Economics building, Roussas will provide you anxious attendees with "Some Asymptotic Results, and Exponential Approximation in Semi-Markov Models." If you want more information about the data, too bad. (Unless, of course, you wait patiently and ask nicely.) But, if you want more information about the seminar, call A. Larry Wright at 621-6872.

Sick of the same old shoot-'em-up/romance/Shakespeare take-offs that seem to dominate the movie theaters these days? Tonight, you have three opportunities for refreshment. The Arizona International Film Festival kicks off at 2 p.m. in Gallagher Theatre, with a showing of "The Reel Frontier," a short-film sampler. The film will run until 5 p.m., at which point the theater employees will clean up the joint for the next film. "The Pornographer" ('nuff said) will begin at 7 p.m., and will be followed at 9 p.m. by "A Place Called Chiapas," a documentary on the Zapatista movement in Mexico. The admission for each film is $5. Call 628-1717 for further information.

The Mathematics Department is very demanding. One may hear the faculty occasionally yell something like, "If you won't clear up on your own, I'll force it!" See what such a comment may be in reference to at today's Program in Applied Mathematics Colloquium. Catherine Garcia-Reimbert is visiting from Mexico to bring you an example of "Induced Transparency in Liquid Crystals." She will be speaking in Room 501 of the Mathematics building at 4 p.m. Contact Kathleen Leick at 621-2016 for additional information.

Get your last glimpse of snow before the blazing summer begins at tonight's lecture at the Center for Creative Photography. Michael Gray (curator, National Trust Fox Talbot Museum, England) will talk and use photographs to illustrate the life and work of "Hurley the Irrepressible." Hurley was the official expedition photographer on Sir Ernest Shackleton's infamous trek to Antarctica in the early part of this century. See the impressive products of dangerous conditions at 6 p.m. in the Auditorium. Questions? Call the CCP at 621-7968.
