And unless this attitude is changed , time will come when we will find ourselves singing our school hymn as Silliman
under the sea ( pardon the slur ) .
Now , let us talk about this newly-formed group called BASILBAN.Most of us are aware about the contradicting comments regarding its recognition as a legitimate group in the campus.Some of these unusual comments have gained approval while some have achieved outright rejection.It appears that some sectors of the University
have already accepted , in a deeper sense , the trumpeted upsurge of this group.Others are tightly stepping on the ground , hindering its growth.It has become clear and vivid to me now that for a group to be recognized , the least thing a new group could do is to feed every sector in the University
with a silver spoon , so to speak.
...Gov. Chiongbian finished high school in Silliman and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Far Eastern University
.She is the managing_director of Eastern Shipping Lines , Inc. , president of JLC & Sons , Inc. , vice-president of Kling Plantation Co. , Inc. and Cebu Realty , Inc. , and director of Eastern International Plastic and Packaging Corporation
A beloved public servant of Sarangani province , she
has established various infrastructure projects , notably the erection of its Capitol building , the best in southern Mindanao.
Together with her
husband's effort , Rep.
abides by Christian principles.In doing so , it endorses a particular lifestyle based on the biblical teachings.Consequently , Silliman
cannot allow itself to be a forum for promoting other lifestyles.On this point , the issue is not that Silliman forces students to follow the lifestyle it proclaims , simply that it cannot be identified with other lifestyles.We can only promote the via , veritas , vita..
5. Strong opposition has_been raised by the various sectors of the University
including the SU Church
.Consequently , moral issues are being raised about the prophecy of recognizing such an organization.In deference to the church on this matter , the approving body would be well-advised not to take action on or to reject outright the application.
landed on top of bracket A with 12 points.UNO-R , on the other hand , anchored on bracket B with eight points to edge with Silliman
at the finals.
As can be noted during the fifth day , SU Tigers had a lopsided 7-0 victory against Iloilo's Western Institute of Technology
( WIT ) .
Will UNO-R retain their football supremacy , or will Silliman
stage an upset.We will have to wait and see.
This unique football tournament was jointly sponsored by Philips Consumer Communications ( PCC ) , WG&A and Adidas
.Further , PCC Country Manager Genuino Adad assured that PC will have its long-term support for football's future.
After the eloquence , three of the seven candidates vying for the Miss Silliman
98 title were adjudged as best speakers during the pre-pageant held at the Luce Auditorium last Aug.13.
Edrica Gonzalez of the College of Nursing
, Winlove Jazz Miller of the School of Communication
, and Feona Melisande Bernadette Bobon of the College of Business Administration
were chosen as the top three speakers of the said occasion.
The speeches were centered on the theme , Evolution in Revolution : The Silliman Woman.These speeches were delivered in three to four minutes.After this , an open forum was held wherein the candidates answered three questions from representatives of different colleges , except that of her
own.The candidates were later asked a standard question which was formulated by members of the organizing committee a few minutes before the show begun.
The over-all score of the Pre-Pageant comprises 25 percent of the criteria for the Ms. Silliman
1998.The Best Speaker and Best in Talent awards will be given during the pageant night come Aug.24 at the SU Gym.

...Miss Silliman 98 candidatesHer
long curly hair , beautiful face and tanned ballet-trained body , easily makes her
stand_out from the crowd.
Because Miss Silliman
isn't just any pageant.It is THE PAGEANT! she
laughingly exclaimed.But she
sobered_up and explained , One of my greatest fears were pageants.I used to criticize people joining pageants.That is one of the things that I have regretted.In a span of one month , I went from being a spectator to the person being watched.And I tell you , it is so hard.It really takes guts and courage..
