- The Panchen Lama (A.J. Boyd )
It was near the end May 1995, and I had just returned from two months in Siberia. Trying to catch up on world events, I set to scanning accumulated copies of The Seattle Times for world-changing events that I may have missed. I nearly passed over a very small article buried deep in the news section that had accompanied a picture of a 6-year-old child.

- A Response to Mr. Keady (Todd David Whitmore The Common Good)
Last Monday, James Keady spoke at the symposium on sweatshops. I invited Mr. Keady because I thought that his analysis of the situation would be both timely and provocative. He did not disappoint. He told of his experience as a graduate assistant soccer coach at St. John's University and the crisis of conscience that led him to resign that position in light of St. John's association with Nike. Last Tuesday's Observer provided excellent coverage of Mr. Keady's talk.
- University offers assistance for victims of eating disorders (Letter to the Editor )
I am commenting on the Sept. 27 Viewpoint article entitled "ND needs to hear the silent screams of eating disorders." The author presents a powerful picture of the nature and extent of eating disorders within the college student population and specifically at Notre Dame. The two major suggestions are: 1) The University must do more, and 2) Students with eating disorders ("victims") must begin to admit they have a problem. I would like to address each of these suggestions.
- History of Church book banning rips hole in Vinck's argument (Letter to the Editor )
Yet again, I have finished another installment of Sean Vinck's column, and yet again, I am left shaking my head in disbelief. As usual, the self-styled Pat Buchanan of Notre Dame has once again reiterated his pro-Church, ultra-conservative dogma — this time in an article entitled "Limits of the free speech clause" (Sept. 28). And although I don't agree with his conclusions, I can see where Vinck gets the (false) impression that so-called "liberal" groups are indeed exercising their own form of censorship by demanding means through which to enforce "political correctness."

- Moody: China thrives due to market reforms (TIM LOGAN News Editor)
Fifty years after rising to power, the Chinese government is enjoying the support of its populace, largely because of free-market reforms which have led it to a prominent place in the global economy, according to Peter Moody, acting director of Notre Dame's Center for Asian Studies.
- Levitsky: Argentinian labor party is rare in its success (TOM ENRIGHT News Writer)
At a time when many labor-based parties declined, the Justicialista Party of Argentina stood out as an example of success during much of the past decade, Steven Levitsky, a visiting fellow in the Kellogg Institute, said Thursday.
- Student raises money for youth education (ERICA THESING Associate News Editor)

- Panelists discuss challenges, implications of East Timor (KATE NAGENGAST News Writer)

- Dust to Dust: Remembering Holy Cross Hall Former residents, rectors reflect (FINN PRESSLY Assistant News Editor)

- ND football films burst with tradition (By JILLIAN DEPAUL Scene Movie Critic)
There is no doubt that at one time or another, all Notre Dame students have stopped to think how a college experience at Notre Dame is unique compared to one at any other school in the nation. Of course, no matter which school anyone chooses to attend, his or her experience will be different. But by choosing to attend Notre Dame, one chooses a path that is different in a very distinct way.
