Is it real, or just a clever story? Tonight is the debut of the new film, "The Blair Witch Project." The film shows how three film students head out into the woods in search of a cult, only to disappear into the darkness, never to be seen again. The film takes home movie footage, to create a eerie horror film that should keep you on the edge of your seat. The movie debut's today at theaters throughout Tucson.

Religious observance

The Shinto ceremony of Grand Purification, "Oh-harai-taisai", begins today. In this ancient ceremony of repentance, individuals purge themselves of the sins of the last six months. The faithful lay rings of grass and reeds at the entrances of Shinto shrines. Believers who walk through the rings are purified.

July 31-August 1

Farm outing

Agriculture students will delight at this chance to see the up-close-and-personal version of some family farms in Dragoon and Willcox. The UA Extended University sponsors this unique opportunity to gain a behind the scenes perspective of farming Saturday. A $59 fee covers the entire trip. Participants also will make a lunch prepared from fresh produce and farm raised products. For information about this little venture, call 626-4444.


This weekend should be filled with cloudy skies and mild temperatures. Take advantage of this and flock to the mountains to explore. Directly to the north of the UA are the Santa Catalina mountains and Mount Lemmon, which house a number of fine hiking trails ranging from easy flat trails to up-and-down traverses. Call the Coronado National Forest at 749-8700, or stop at one of the ranger stations along the highway on your way up.

Bachelor degree deadline

Expecting to graduate at the end of the summer? Make sure you mail that application for your degree candidacy by today to be eligible to receive your diploma. Contact the UA Registrar's Office for more information at 621-3432.

Mountain Avenue closure

Two major changes begin today to the face of the UA campus, so make sure to adjust your travel routes accordingly. North Mountain Avenue between East First Street and East Second Street will be closed possibly all week as construction crews repaint the road, making it a two-way street. In addition, a traffic light will be erected at Mountain and Second. The Mountain entrance to the Second Street Garage will be closed for the next two years beginning today. Drivers must now enter from the Second Street entrance.

Student union construction

Major changes to foot traffic around the Memorial Student Union are on their way. Fences will lead pedestrians to a narrow walkway on the east side between the union and the Administration building. Blockades will be placed around the union, making the only available entrance and exit through the front doors on the south side and the corridor between the UA Associated Students Bookstore and the union. Also, expect all of the metered parking spaces directly behind the union to become a victim of construction. Call Melissa Dryden with any questions at 621-9251.

Need some information about bird life? Or maybe just Gray Hawks? Brent. D. Bibles has a doctoral speech on "The Relationship Between Productivity and Habitat Quality in Gray Hawks," today at 1 p.m. The whole program takes place in the Biosciences East building, room 116. Nancy Mosman will be available to answer any queries at 621-9227.

CD release

The new CD from G-Love and the Special Sauce called "Philadelphonic." G-Love is just coming off a special performance at this weekend's peace, love and riot festival, Woodstock '99, where they filled in for the band Sugar Ray. If G-Love's distinct sound has not graced your radio's airwaves, you'll find their brand of funk agrees with the musical tastes of most fans. The CD can be picked up at any music store of your choice beginning today.
