It was cut from sand stone of the Gantor hills. A great semicircle, it covers the two roads leading into the city from the north and east. Each slab was carried here by elephants of the Zeha desert. The Dwarves were employed in its construction. They used their great skill in both carving and magic to construct the mighty bridge. The bridge is ornamental, leading into the gate of the city. The city is at sea level, but the roads leading in were lowered to give the city the appearance of being higher in the air.
Crossing the bridge, the Wickenthals entered the city proper. Across the street stands a Medieval stone structure with four large spires at the corners. A large oak door with steel bands stood majestically before them. Inscribed upon them Kerry Virgen: I love the book so far.

Davie and I shared our army blankets pinned together with giant horse blanket pins, and the spruce or hemlock boughs that constituted our mattress in the three-sided cabin. Marshall was right. We were in the sunshine, above the clouds, which poured like a waterfall between Mts. Lincoln and Ellen. The Adirondacks looked like a string of barges in the distance, their peaks poking through the sea of clouds.

To walk through the Center for the Arts, under construction for nearly three years and now open for business, is to feel yourself transported to another place. There is even a secret door from the stage behind which is stored a huge Steinway grand piano. But the whole place is like that.

Hanging above the theater floor is an intricate web of cat- walks that supports lights, sound and video equipment. Just off the theater space is a huge workroom, with a loading dock door and enough space to construct even very large sets and wheel them right through a folding wall into the theater itself.
The workroom even includes a three-story slot against one wall for painting backdrops. Beneath the building is a massive storage space, part of which. Stay tuned. Smith accepted. Maybe 1 just have an inflated view of the job. And one tactic the admissions office tried as part of that effort was spreading out the responsibility for attracting those students. I think it worked well this past year. About another 5 percent of the class. Smith feels that the minority students are also an exceptionally able group academically.
This is in part because of a subtle change in admissions philosophy. Of 51 students, 44 were in the top 10 percent of their high school classes, and eight were valedictorians. Of the 20 graduates, five were Phi Beta Kappa, and 12 graduated either summa 3 , magna 3 or cum laude 6. The program has been so effective that it became too much work for one person. Smith does expect to fill her position. There has been one addition to the staff in the past year: John Hanson joined the office as an associate director.

He bought a Soling, a foot keelboat that is one of the classes sailed in the Summer Olympics, and began learning.
Nearly 10 years later, the payoff came in the Mediterranean off Barcelona: An Olympic silver medal for Mahaney and his crew. In sailing, as in most sports, experience is what counts, the total hours spent on the water. He dedicated himself to becoming the best goalie he could be, and ended his career as an All-American, and a captain of an ECAC championship team.
There was nothing easy about that, but becoming a world class sailor was tougher, and far more expensive, both in terms of cash and time. Between and this year, Mahaney worked even harder at his sailing, and spent even more of his money. Instead of awarding medals based simply on fleet racing — boat for boat against the field.
The start, for example, becomes even more important, and starting strategy far more complex. They won the Soling world match racing championships. And they did, by winning the eight-race fleet racing portion and beating Jeff Madrigali of San Francisco, , in the two-boat match racing finals. They were upset in the semifinals, , by Lawrie Smith and his team from England; England went on to beat Denmark for the title, with Mahaney defeating Germany in the contest for third. The team even had its own personal sailing coach, Ed Baird, from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Following the fleet racing, the top six boats — the U. This time, Mahaney and crew won the best-of-three match, Denmark defeated Germany in the other semifinal, and so it was the Americans vs. Great Britain defeated Germany for the bronze medal. The conditions were less than ideal — a dying breeze and a substantial four- foot chop — not perfect weather for a team known for its dominance in a blow. It was great having everyone right there, having dinner with athletes from other sports.
One night, I had dinner with Jim Courier the tennis player, who had a much less enjoyable Olympics, on the court, than Mahaney had on the water. It was really great fun. Facing page: Mahaney and crew get set for a gybe. It was like going back to a glorified college. But with no homework. The medals for all 10 sailing classes were presented at one ceremony, held on a floating dock in the Olympic harbor, with a big-screen TV for spectators, a fireworks display, and the king and queen of Spain on hand.
At that ceremony, American sailors received the aforementioned nine medals, and that, combined with the fact that there was not a second of live sailing action on U. And his mother actually chartered a good- sized yacht so that she could go out and watch the races on the water. He did say that in Europe, all of the sailing was broadcast live; in fact, the live TV schedule was one of the reasons that the match racing finals were sailed in less-than-perfect conditions. During the last year leading up to the Olympics, I was probably gone three weeks out of four. For seven to nine weeks, these students, many of whom are Middlebury undergraduates, take part in one of the most rigorous and challenging language programs in the world.
Thus, I became for a time the wallflower of the Russian School. Of course, the students must order their food in Russian. But many of the students in Freeman that morning seem to be studying hard. To ensure that students get to their first class on time, breakfast at Freeman ends at A Twilight Hall classroom , above , was where you could find third- year students most mornings of the summer.
Below , vocabulary lessons could sometimes get ugly, when the topic was food. From 8 to 10 in the morning is a drill session. This means two solid hours of grammar, vocabulary and speaking exercises.
Our group is taught by Larisa Ratnikova. The drills emphasize student participation. These two hours seemed to be the most intense of the day. Each student has two thick notebooks for this class, which contain fairly recent clippings from Russian newspapers, mostly about politics and economics. Students read one or two articles per night, and then discuss them in class. But that may just be a reflection of my own biases. The six of us remain in Twilight Auditorium, but the room fills up with other third-year students.
In this class, students listen intently and scrawl notes furiously as Professor Dina Dukach lectures in a particularly fiery and exciting style. After the lecture, it's back to Freeman for lunch and a little relaxation. This time, there is much more talk and laughter, since some of the pressure has been taken off and classes are done. KT has a single room, since Gifford is mostly singles.
As I walk down the hall with KT, I notice that the dorm seems strangely quiet. During the regular academic year, loud rock music can be heard in any dorm, at any time of day or night. But not during the summer. The pledge, again. It not only forbids speaking English, but also listening to it, whether spoken or sung.
KT never really needs to speak any English. It helps, of course, that the merchants downtown are quite used to this kind of behavior, and willing to go along. Around 2 p. When she wants to sign up for time on the exercise bike, she merely points to the bike on the sign-up sheet and the student monitor writes her name and time down. KT nods. Easy enough.
She studies in her room and rarely feels the need to study in the isolation of the library, since she does not have a roommate. Music is rarely played, and most of the other students study quietly, as well. Dinner is especially crowded, since Freeman is only open for an hour, from to After dinner, from to , there is a quick hour of socializing in Russian, of course. Anybody who wants to play in a game can. All of the schools participate in one big tournament that lasts all summer.
I had heard rumors about the games, about how fierce and vicious the play can be. And I the game I see — Russian School vs. Above , a discussion in class. Below , students have to concentrate intently , and take notes furiously, to keep up with the professors , nearly all of whom are native speakers of Russian. French School — does nothing to lay those rumors to rest.
The Russian School which, by the way, is undefeated at this stage in the season plays one game each week against another school, and a couple of intra-school scrimmages. After a shower comes — surprise — more studying, and often a movie that one must watch for a class third year students have lots of required movies. Among the many assignments each night grammar, reading, vocabulary, etc. Students are expected to spend about an hour a night here, which KT definitely does.
There is a teacher who lives in Gifford with the Russian students whose job it is to help students, either one-on-one or in small groups. Katherine E. Ball, better known as Kebby, is a junior English major from Atlanta, Ga. Rehnquist Court revisited Conservative revolution stalled, or transformed?
This is a good time to take another look. I intend to show that while each decision can be defended, in two of the cases the Court could have been more candid in explaining the reasons for the division and the resulting complexity in doctrine. Freedom of Speech: R. Paul In this case, the city of St. Mosley , On the other hand. The governmental message is nonetheless clear and conviction is more certain. Religion: Lee v. The school principal, Robert E. As the majority saw it, students were required to participate in the religious exercise or absent themselves from their graduation.
Justice Scalia dissented, in an opinion joined by Chief Justice Rehnquist and Justices White and Thomas, arguing that tradition supported such a practice and there was no coercion to participate. Earlier cases — upholding the public display of a creche Lynch v. Justice Kennedy rejected any reconsideration of the Lemon test. Schempp , or is it more like legislative prayer, which the Court upheld in ? The different answers reflected different conceptions of coercion. And even if one stands, does that constitute forced participation in a government-sponsored prayer? Would the decision have been the same if the students had not been asked to stand?
Abortion: Planned Parenthood v. But it invalidated the the fifth provision, a spousal notification requirement. The precedent controversy involves two issues. Finally, what is the effect of the Casey decision on the constitutional law doctrine concerning fundamental rights? The classification of the right often determines the outcome of a case, since few laws pass such a test, and few non-fundamental rights claims are upheld. Conclusion How, then, do these cases demonstrate the absence of the conservative revolution on the Rehnquist Court today?
In both cases the argument on the merits — regarding the establishment clause and liberty in the due process clause — was well developed on its own and then buttressed by precedent Lemon and Roe. As for the divisions on the Rehnquist Court and their effect on constitutional law, I have two brief observations. Second, constitutional doctrine has become more complex in the areas of freedom of speech and abortion law. He would like to thank his wife, Cecelia Cohen Dry '72, and professors Eve Adler and Allison Stanger for reading and commenting on earlier drafts of this article.
