Week celebrates Xicano culture
The history of the T will be
By Lindsay Young
Not only will the Xicano Awareness Week
celebrate Xicanos, it will strive to educate those
who are not familiar with the culture with a week
of education and entertainment events.
Chandra Diaz, Mexican American Student
Association president, said she encouraged the
university and community to celebrate “The
Xicano Movement in the 21st Century.”
Xicano Awareness Week has been planned
by the Mexican American Student Association
for more than 20 years. Diaz said this year’s
celebration will be larger than any.
MASA also teamed up with the Women’s
Center to present a series of events focused on
“La Mujer” (The Woman) on Thursday.
One of the first events will be an explanation
of why it’s spelled Xicano but pronounced
Chicano. The reason for the X will be revealed
today, with a discussion of “The History of the
‘X’ in Chicano” at 10 a.m. in the Nebraska Union.
Lt. Col. Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch, the
highest ranking Latina officer in the U.S. Army,
will speak at the closing banquet Friday and at
the Youth Day rally on Saturday.
Kickbusch’s Saturday speech will focus on
“Envisioning Yourself Successful.”
Diaz said the goal of the first Youth Day Confer
ence is to bring Latino high school students from
across Nebraska together to share in their culture.
“They are so few and so far apart,” she said.
“We just want to get them together to help them

the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) to the Vehicular Intercommunications
System (VIS), Northrop Grumman’s Electronics Systems Division continues tb prove that the impossible is
At our Electronics Systems Division facility in suburban Chicago you’ll find one of the world’s most
capable and experienced designers and manufacturers of highly specialized electronic systems. Our
product technologies include Radio Frequency (RF) electronic systems and electro-optic/Inffared systems.
These products have continuing near and long-term business opportunity. In fact, at Northrop Grumman
our strategic thrust into defense electronics is estimated to exceed $10 billion by the year 2000. Current
areas of opportunity include:
CMMIC/ASIC ) _
Northrop Grumman Electronics Systems continues to be an industry leader in the development and use
of monolithic microwave integrated circuit and analog and digital application-specific integrated circuit
technology. Through this technology, complex circuits have been dramatically simplified, resulting in 70%
fewer parts, a 10:1 reduction in weight and volume, and increased performance and reliability, compared
to conventional implementations. A dramatic example of maximizing miniaturization can be found in the
microwave power module, the smallest power transmitter ever designed and constructed.
(Advanced Technology ---
Here is where the leading edge of todays electronic countermeasures technology is created. The Advanced
Technology section provides engineers with an applied research environment to simulate state-of-the-art
advances in analog, digital, RF, microwave, dectro-optic/Inffared, and electron tube technologies along with
the attendant computer aided modeling and simulation techniques.
ES-RM infrared jamming systems provide military aircraft with protection against a vast array of heat
seeker missile threats and are compatible with virtually all modem military and commercial aircraft and
armaments. All electro-optical/Inffared countermeasures systems provide stand-alone protection against
surface-to-air, air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles providing the flexibility to program specific countermeasure
technology against varying threats. These high-powered efficient jammers are capable of protection against
multiple infrared homing missiles.
(Embedded Software )_
Northrop Grumman is at the leading-edge of mission planning and system software development, with
expertise gained from working on Attack Missile Mission Planning Software (MPS), as well as state-of-the
art next generation “smart” weapons system software. A joint govemment/industry team, using the
maturity scales has rated Northrop Grumman among the top high technology software development
companies in the industry.

The Platoon London Class (PLC) will challenge the limits of your mental
and physical abilities. It's a demanding test that reveals your true character
and lets you prove you have what it takes to be a leader of Marines. Best
of all, it doesn’t interfere with your highest priority - earning your college
degree. PLC is the Marine Corps' primary officer commissioning
prognm. All training takes place during one or two summers while you're
an undergraduate. After completing training and earning your degree, you’re
commissioned a second lieutenant. Ail commissions are active duty; and if
you qualify, we can guarantee flight school. Most companies want
managers. We look for leaders who thrive on responsibility. If you think you
have the potential to rise up to this challenge, contact your local Marine
Corps Officer Selection Officer and ask about PLC.
