Student found dead in San Pablo dorm room

An ASU student who had a medical history of epilepsy was found dead in his room in the San Pablo residence hall Friday morning, according to a University statement.

Industrial design freshman Brian Carver was found face down in his bed by his roommate shortly before 11 a.m., said Manny Romero, ASU spokesman. He said investigators found "no signs of foul play" in the room.

Regents ax fees, support redesign

Undergraduate students can breathe a sigh of relief after the Arizona Board of Regents moved Thursday to disapprove all new undergraduate fees and increases to existing fees.

The 7-2 vote came in response to a system many regents felt was flawed, though concerns did not transfer to graduate fees, which all passed unanimously. The decision to veto the proposed fees came in contrast to much student comment during the call to the audience at the beginning of the meeting when 10 ASU and UA students told the regents they were ready for fees.

ON THE COVER
Even when he was young, William Calvo knew he was different. Growing up in heavily Catholic Costa Rica, spirituality and the church always were important to Calvo. But there was another element to Calvo's personality that also was there, even though he did not know what it was at first.

Calvo was an effeminate child, a bit of an outcast. He liked He-man-type cartoons, not because he wanted to be like the superheroes, but because he was attracted to them.

In 1955, 25 Japanese women disfigured by the attack on Hiroshima were given plastic surgery by doctors in the United States. Following the surgeries, the women were paraded around the country on tour.
