Editor's Notes
Women of (stuff and) substance - This issue feels like what geologists call an inclusion in amber-a plant, insect, or object trapped in resin millions of years ago. September 11, with its tragic events, was not that long ago. Yet September 10 seems millions of years away-as does the relatively lighthearted mood with which many of this issue's articles were prepared.Times have changed. President Don M. Randel addresses the University community; in the journal, you'll find a brief account of how the first wave of events has affected life on campus.

From the President
"We were saying yesterday...."- Academic life is the next best thing to farming when it comes to staying in touch with the rhythm of the seasons. Just as summer's end brings an increasing slant to the sun, a growing chorus of cicadas, and the need to have the corncribs full, so it brings the rising hum of a few thousand station wagons and minivans approaching Hyde Park and the need to have a vast array of facilities and people at the ready. It is not unlike the theater or the concert hall. There comes a moment when the curtain goes up, and no matter how often one has performed this work, the pulse quickens. There are butterflies in the young stomachs riding in those station wagons and minivans, and there are butterflies in the stomachs that await them here on campus, too.
