1) Alumna gives $2 million for Parrish renovation

The College reported late last week that it has received a $2 million pledge from Marian Ware ’38 and her family foundation for the renovation of Parrish Hall.

Parrish, the oldest and largest building on campus, is scheduled for extensive remodeling within its stone exterior. The project plans to improve administrative space as well as student housing. The plan also includes a new center for student organizations and activities, as well as provisions for a new admissions office in the Commons area on the second floor.

Mrs. Ware has a long history of philanthropic involvement with Swarthmore. Among other gifts, she and her late husband, John H. Ware III, provided the funding in 1981 for the Ware Pool. Over the years she has also provided an endowed professorship, the Marian Snyder Ware Professorship of Physical Education and Athletics, as well as funding for the Cunningham Fieldhouse and the training room in the new Mullan Tennis Center.

Mrs. Ware’s pledge was made through her own personal contributions as well as funds from her family’s Oxford Foundation, established in 1947 to support human services, higher education, health and hospitals, environmental conservation, and church programs. Mrs. Ware, who established the foundation with her husband, serves on its board of directors, along with her children, Paul W. Ware, John H. Ware IV, Marilyn Ware, and Carol Ware Gates. John H. Ware III, who died in 1997, was a Chester County civic leader and a state senator and U.S. congressman.

3) World news roundup

A Russian-made helicopter carrying seven Americans and nine Vietnamese citizens crashed into a mountainside Saturday, killing all aboard. The crew’s mission was to search for the remains of some 2000 Americans still listed as Missing in Action after the Vietnam War; the main effort of the search is scheduled to begin in May. All 16 bodies were recovered on Sunday, and the President Bush offered condolences to the families of those killed.

The U.S. warned Beijing Sunday that Sino-American relations are being hurt with every day that the crew of the ER-3E spy plane was being detained. The Bush administration has declined repeatedly to apologize for the April 1 incident where a Chinese jet collided with the American spy plane, but Secretary of State Powell did say the US was “sorry” for the death of the Chinese jet pilot Wang Wei. President Bush is said to have sent a letter of condolences to the pilot’s wife, in which he expressed hope for her future.

As Congress goes into recess for the next two weeks, lobbyists are gearing up in response to the federal budget formally proposed today by President Bush. The budget will propose cutting spending in the areas of shipbuilding (aimed at developing environmentally-friendly double-hulled oil tankers), health (training of children’s doctors, for example), public housing, loans to small businesses, and local police hiring and training. The informal budget draft released five weeks ago drew bipartisan opposition, but Vice President Cheney asserted Sunday the President will veto any spending he views as excessive.

8) World sports roundup

Tiger Woods won the Masters at Augusta National on Sunday, holding off rivals David Duval and Phil Mickelson to become the first golfer in history to hold all four major titles at the same time. The three were tied as Woods and Mickelson made the turn to the fabled back-nine at Augusta, but Mickelson quickly faded and Duval lost by two strokes as his birdie putts from several feet away on the 17th and 18th holes failed to roll in.

Baseball roundup: The Yankees routed the Toronto Blue Jays 16-5 after taking a 12-0 lead in the third inning. Jorge Posada hit a first inning grand slam, and Roger Clemens finished off the Blue Jays, ending a six-game losing streak to Toronto. …The Mets lost to Montreal Expos 5-2, after Mike Piazza fouled out in the eight inning with bases loaded. The Mets are 2-4 in the season. …Despite 42 degree weather in Boston, Pedro Martinez struck out 16 in eight innings to secure the Red Sox victory against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 3-0. …Finally, the Phillies beat Chicago Cubs 3-1 Sunday, despite dropping the first two games against the Cubs.

The Philadelphia Flyers defeated Buffalo Sabres 2-1 yesterday, as goalie Roman Cechmanek held off 36 shots. The goalie for the Sabres was Dominik Hasek, Cechmanek’s former mentor on the Czech national team in the 1998 Olympics; the Flyers’ victory, which earned them fourth place in the play-offs, prompted cliches of “Czech-mate” from sports commentators.

“These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equaled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.”
