Maybe the third time will be a charm, but students at UC Irvine will just have to keep holding student government elections until they get it right. Last Thursday the UCI student council voided the results of a second election held to select student government representatives after a lawsuit was filed in federal court challenging the balloting as unconstitutional.

The Cal State Northridge student government has stepped in to provide earthquake aid that relief agencies can't. CSUN Associated Students have created an emergency fund to help students to buy books for this semester. The move followed a special post-earthquake meeting to discuss the needs of students, many of whom were impoverished or displaced by the Jan. 17 earthquake, Lazar said.

The state Supreme Court on Thursday agreed to review a far-reaching constitutional challenge to the use of mandatory student activity fees to fund campus political groups at UC Berkeley. Under the system at issue, a portion of an annual $37.50 fee is used by the UC student government to support about 150 student organizations--including political groups ranging from the Abortion Rights Action League to the Sierra Club to Students for Peace.

Students at College of the Canyons are divided over a proposed $20 mandatory parking fee which will be considered Wednesday by the district's Board of Trustees. The fee, which would be used for maintenance, lighting and an additional security officer, would be collected beginning with the fall semester. Student government leaders say the fee is necessary to meet the college's needs. But other students say the fee, if charged, should be lowered.

Expressing concern that citizens' rights are being eroded, the City Council passed a resolution this week urging student leaders at Saddleback College to reinstate the Pledge of Allegiance at their public meetings. The Associated Student Government last year discontinued the practice of reciting the pledge. Student leaders upheld that policy last month, despite protests from military veterans and other residents. That prompted some council members to take a stand.

Elected student leaders at UC Berkeley passed a resolution early Thursday that urged the UC system to divest from companies said to profit from anti-Palestinian Israeli policies. The controversial resolution was passed in the student government's Senate after being debated Wednesday night and into the morning. The vote was 11 in favor and 9 opposed, according to the Daily Californian student newspaper. The resolution calls for the UC system to end investments in such companies as Caterpillar and General Electric that provide technology, weapons or other products that the Israeli military uses in the Palestinian territories.

Nin Burns, a senior at Covina High, might be only 5 feet 9 and 175 pounds, but he's receiving plenty of attention from college recruiters. A starting flanker and defensive back for the 2-0 Colts, Burns scored touchdowns on a 43-yard pass reception, 65-yard punt return and 98-yard kickoff return in a 34-8 victory over Covina Charter Oak last Friday. He also had nine tackles, a sack and an interception.

Despite a second protest by about 45 military veterans and others, student leaders at Saddleback College on Thursday held firm to their policy of holding meetings without the Pledge of Allegiance. "I don't think we are being disrespectful for not saying the pledge," said Michelle Dawson, a member of the Associated Student Government. "In fact, I think we are trying to respect the feelings of everyone in our country."

The Bremerton High School student congress on a 49-47 vote has approved a measure that would bar openly gay teen-agers from serving in student government, but the principal says it is unlikely the new rule will ever take effect. The 1,350-member student body in Washington will vote on the issue Monday, requiring a two-thirds majority for approval. Even then, its chances of passing a review by the school administration are slim, said Principal Marilee Hansen.

About 30 veterans and students defiantly recited the Pledge of Allegiance at Saddleback College on Thursday in a low-key protest against a student body leader whose refusal to salute the flag has sparked controversy. "We're not pushing to force anybody to give the Pledge of Allegiance," said 71-year-old George Key, a San Clemente resident and veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.
