The evening will feature two close friends of King's, John David Maguire, president of Claremont University Center and Graduate School, and Cornish Rogers, professor of pastoral theology and director of Urban Ministries Center, School of Theology at Claremont. Both men knew King as classmates; and President Maguire was a member of the original Freedom Ride in 1961. Maguire was also the first chairman of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Center for Social Change in Atlanta, Georgia.
The 6:00 p.m. dinner begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. At 7:00 p.m. a half-hour documentary, "I Have a Dream," will be shown; this will be followed by a discussion between Dr. Maguire and Dr. Rogers, and will also include time to ask questions of them. Please join us and learn more about a great American leader who was murdered during the year that shaped a generation-1968.
Puck's research has been instrumental in reassessing the effects of radiation and experimental toxins on human cells. The effects of toxicity have been commonly measured by tests using bacteria, but, generally, bacteria are less sensitive than human cells to toxicity. Puck's studies have made it possible for human cells, instead of bacteria, to be used in such tests for the effects of toxicity. In addition, his system can now be used to measure the effects of protective influences of possible anti-cancer agents.
The Joint Science Department sponsors the visit of this history-making man. Puck, who received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from the University of Chicago, is currently the head of the Eleanor Roosevelt Institute for Cancer Research in Denver. Preceding his lecture, the Athenaeum hosts a 5:30 p.m. reception and dinner. Students interested in attending are encouraged to use the reservation coupons in this issue to sign up for the event.
In his introduction to Pro and Conrad (1979), one of the artist's four books, Art Buchwald said, "Conrad's name strikes fear in the evil hearts of men all over the world. Wherever there is corruption, greed or hypocrisy, everyone says, 'This is a job for Conrad'."
Don't miss Paul Conrad's presentation at the Athenaeum on Thursday, February 4, a continuation of our Constitution series focusing on current political issues. His presentation, to be preceded by a 5:30 p.m. reception and dinner, includes a slide show of his most controversial cartoons in conjunction with a running commentary that is humorous and informative.
The Claremont Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Michael Deane Lamkin, will play the music of Johann Strauss, Jr.; there will be an opportunity to learn to waltz and polka; the dinner will feature specialties from Vienna, as well as elegant desserts and coffees.
The cost for CMC-associated persons (CMC students, faculty, and staff) is $5.00 per person and $5.00 for one guest. Join us for a delicious and enjoyable Evening in Vienna beginning at 6:00 p.m.
JOHN J. PITNEY JR., moderator
A wine and cheese reception will be served at 5:30 p.m., with dinner starting, at 6:00 p.m. The discussion will be held following dinner.
Wednesday Lunch. Every Wednesday at noon, lunch is served in one of the Athenaeum's dining rooms, which is set aside especially for students and faculty who wish to share a meal and engage in conversation. Because of the popularity of this event, we ask that people attending the open forum lunch do not save seats for others.
Toward the second half of the semester, the Athenaeum plans to sponsor a special dinner and program, "Celebrating the Arts," showcasing the musical and artistic talents of CMC students. Any CMC students who play an instrument or sing, and are interested in performing during this special event, should contact the Athenaeum and/or myself (Appleby 102, 621-1218) or Stephanie Lum (Fawcett 701, x3587) as soon as possible. Since we would also like to replace the Athenaeum's painting with the artworks of our students for the evening, any of you who would like your artful creations displayed should also contact us soon. We are confident that the all-too-often hidden aesthetic talent of Claremont McKenna College students will emerge to make this a truly memorable event.
