  Print media preserves the pastPDF files may take a moment to load

Hardcore Gauntlet editors and volunteers can often be found going through the bound editions of our old issues, carefully turning over faded, yellowed pages of newsprint. It is a fascinating exercise because the bound editions date back to 1961/62, the Gauntlet's second year of existence. As the closest thing we have to Gauntlet artifacts, they give us a better understanding of our past, and show us our roots forming over the decades.

And what's truly amazing is that we can see it at all.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

If Mother Theresa was alive today, I'll bet she'd want to have some words with Lawrence Bailey.

While Bailey's comparison of relief workers in the Middle East to dirty pimps is dramatic, it is hardly a convincing argument. Bailey acknowledges that relief groups like the Shelter Now International "are so important in restoring hope and enriching the lives of the oppressed and displaced," but then argues these groups have no right to express their religious belief.

Editor, The Gauntlet

I had the opportunity to read a recent article in the Gauntlet by Lawrence Bailey and was most disappointed with his thoughts. I found it amusing that he was able to interpret the seizure of Christian literature to be indicative of mass manipulation of helpless people.

I've worked many times in needy countries in association with various Christian relief agencies, and thus found this article to be quite sad. It led me to assume he's never done relief work before.

One Gauntlet reporter takes a critical, student-oriented look at the student loan program, revealing the hot spots and pitfalls every student should be aware of.

     If high tuition is getting you down, take heart: you're not alone.

"We're now seeing over 50 per cent of U of C students turn to student loans to finance all or part of their education" explained Oliver Bladek, Vice-president External of the University of Calgary Students' Union.

  Sour ReturnPDF files may take a moment to load

Nothing ever changes at the University of Calgary. When it does, it changes at a snail's pace, buried under the bureaucracy that only a university could create--and the U of C has it's own special brand.
