ASUA expects spirited campaign

Originally expecting a large turnout for student government applications, student leaders are still hopeful for an intense campaign despite the disappointment of receiving less than half of the response they intended.

The Associated Students of the University of Arizona election commission received 33 applications for all four elected positions, a little more than half of the applications that were picked up.

Gesticulating with one hand and clutching a Bible in the other, he speaks in insistent tones, the coiled muscles in his jaw clenching and relaxing with the cadence of his speech. Even in the heat, Peter doesn't pause for water (Peter isn't his real name, which he declined to give).

Before newspapers had photographs, they had illustrations. And before John Wayne ever captured the southwest on the silver screen, Maynard Dixon did with his drawings and paintings.

Dixon, whose career spanned from 1897 to 1942, is still being honored in not one, but two exhibits at the University of Arizona Museum of Art. [Read article]
