Do you have anything to declare? Whether you have chosen a major or not, it would be in your interest to check out the Meet Your Major Fair today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Advisers will be milling about the Arizona Ballroom of the Student Union to talk about majors, minors and programs available at the UA. Sharon Aiken-Wisniewski can give you the details if you call her at 621-7763.

Pathos plays the UA Mall Stage today from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. The band is playing (for free) as part of the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Jake McLaughlin can give you the basics at 621-1111.

Edwin Salpeter of Cornell University asks the question "Hydrogen in Strongly Magnetized Neutron Star Surfaces - the Real Cold Fusion?" to fuel his discussion at the Theoretical Astrophysics Lunch Seminar. Show up to Room N305 of the Steward Observatory at noon today, and he just might give you an answer. Barbara Kausen can give you answers, too - contact her regarding the lecture format at 621-7690.

Can't make the first lecture? That's OK - you can still hear Edwin Salpeter speak at the Theoretical Astrophysics Colloquium at 4 this afternoon. Learn all about "Giant Galaxies, Dwarfs, and Clouds" in Room N210 of the Steward Observatory. Barbara Kausen will field questions on this lecture, as well, at 621-7690.

Break out the camera to take advantage of the "Dipole Moments and Structures of Metal Containing Radical" lecture. Timothy C. Steimle is visiting from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at ASU to enhance the Chemistry Seminar series here at the UA. Meet him at 4 p.m. in Room 209 of the Old Chemistry building to get your earful. Lucy M. Ziurys will take your questions at 626-8186.

If your papers read like CatCalls, perhaps you should check out the "Organizing Your Essay: Transitions" workshop this evening. Kendra Gaines of the Writing Skills Improvement Program will help you change your transitions from potholes to freeways from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. tonight in Room 310 of the Modern Languages building. Donna Rabuck can give you more information if you dial 621-5849.

Logical answers to enigmatic questions await you at the Steward Observatory Public Evening Series Lecture. John Cooke will give you the lowdown on "Gamma-Ray Bursters, Gravitation Theory, and the Nature of the Redshift" tonight from 7:30 to 8:30 in Room N210 of the Steward Observatory. Stick around after the talk to get up close and personal with the night sky - undergraduate majors in astronomy and related sciences will be operating the 21-inch telescope at the Campus Station of the Observatory. Contact Connie Walker at 621-7096 to find out more about the series.

They say that music soothes the savage beast - regardless of your mood, however, you should come hear Neil Tatman display his talent on the oboe tonight at Crowder Hall. Tatman is one of the newest members of the UA School of Music and Dance faculty. Tonight's performance will be his debut solo recital. Hear music composed by Benjamin Britten, Camille Saint-Saens, Arnold Cooke and Francis Poulenc for $5, if you are student.
