That's what we stand for," he said.

Green party supporter Jeanne
Doogs, one of the original founders
of the Reform Party, said, "We've
[the American citizens] been lied to.
We need a new government that can

She said the Reform Party has a
high ethical standard for Congress
and that the budget has not been bal-
anced for 12 years.
"Fifty billion dollars has been
given to the tobacco industry and $4
billion to Amway. Since 1992, the

United States. He also founded

joint venture to begin selling Russ-

Hickman said, "One thing to be
successful in life—you must know
what you want to do.
"You have to pick a profession
that you want to be in. You must fin-
ish your college education," he said.
He also said students should try
to make A's in their major classes
and should want to go to work eyery
Hickman said every goal
should have a period of time in
which you want to accomplish it. As
soon as you accomplish that goal,
you should set up another goal.
"You must have a plan and
work it if it is successful. If it is not
successful, you must change it to fit
your business," he said.
Hickman also said it is impor-

goals of always trying to make the

He said he had no money when
his first business was started, but he
managed to buy $12,500 in raw
materials. He then asked a bank
what companies he would have to
sell to in order to get his accounts
receivable financed. Shortly after,
he began selling to companies such
as Kmart and Montgomery Ward.
He said his business communi-
cates with the customer every day,
and each week it reviews the cus-
tomers' problems. On a normal day,
Hickman's business receives 350-
400 phone calls, and it receives 650-

the greatest honor I will ever
receive," Hickman said.
The Business Hall of Fame
honors a successful business execu-

achievement and service. Hickman

sychology offices moved due to
expanding crack in Mulkey Hall
CAMPUS UFE EDITOR
The fate of Wesleyan's Mulkey Hall is uncertain.
According to Allen Henderson, dean of the school
of education, the dry summer caused a shift in the
foundation under Mulkey Hall and widened the crack
in the building.
Marcia Hawkins, vice president of administration,
said, " We don't know what will happen to Mulkey Hall
right now. There are several ways we can go. It is an
old building. We don't know if it is worth putting
money in to revitalize [it] for future office space, guest
living or classrooms."
The psychology department's faculty offices will
relocate from Mulkey Hall to the Exercise and Sports
Studies suite in the Sid Richardson building sometime
in the next three weeks.
"The offices will be moved when we can fix the
[moving] schedule. Then the building will be closed
until engineers can determine if it is feasible to go
underground and shore
the foundation," Hen-
Mulkey Hall, built
in 1906, was originally
a science building. At
various times, it has
served as faculty apart-
ments, classrooms and
director of gift plan-
ning, said, "Mulkey
Hall is like the other
buildings. They hired
architects to give the
buildings good designs,
but there wasn't money
for the best materials. It
is the challenge of turn
of the century build-
McGown said, "I'm
ed' one. I would love to
see it refurbished. But
pragmatically, it may
not be possible. The
university will have to
pull back and preserve
the buildings we can."
Hawkins said that with the renovations of the Fine
Arts auditorium and the construction of the Nenetta
Burton Carter Building, as well as the work underway
on Stella Russell Hall, Wesleyan has several major J
projects on its plate.
"We are pleased the university located a safe
space for all of us together and that it is concerned
about our safety," said Dr. Marilyn Pugh, chairman of
the department of psychology. "And we are especially
pleased when we hear any evidence that work has
begun on the Nennetta Burton Carter building."
Once the move is completed, faculty phone num-
bers should remain the same. The new offices will be
as follows: Dr. John Hall, SWR 101, Dr. Marcel Kerr,
SWR 103, Dr. Laura Schneider, SWR 104, Dr.
Michael Ellison, SWR 105 and Dr. Pugh, SWR 108.
Ellison, professor of psychology, said, "We're just
hoping the building [Mulkey) stays together till we

Due to an excessively dry summer, the crack in Mulkey Hall has
expanded. The faculty offices in the building will be moved with-
