Crews cleared debris from campus Tuesday as south Mississippi regrouped after Hurricane Katrina slammed into the state Monday morn-ing.

Katrina, which first came ashore near Buras, La., as a Category 4 hurricane, caused minor damage on Mississippi State Universitys campus, executive director of facilities Jim Jones said.

A tree fell on the Information Technology Services user ser-vices building at 51 Magruder St. Water damaged 20 univer-sity buildings, and the storm broke several windows. Falling trees brought down power lines, and numerous limbs and debris were scattered across campus.

All in all, I think Mississippi State did well, Jones said.

The university hired about 20 students at the last minute to assist with clean up efforts across campus, Jones said.

William Lawrence, land-scape management crew leader, said the majority of the debris was spread out across the cam-pus center. The crew cleared about 60 percent of the debris by 6 p.m. Tuesday, but mem-bers worked off the clock as volunteers after noon.

We believe in our univer-sity and we want it to look the best it can, Lawrence said.

The Starkville Board of Alderman declared a local state of emergency lasting seven days at an emergency meeting held Monday, Ward 4 Alderman Richard Corey said. At the end of the seven days, the city will decide whether or not to bid for federal aid.

Many students, families and residents spent Monday night in anxious waiting.

Jeffrey Ellis, a senior mechanical engineering major

from Biloxi, said Monday his house on the coast could with-stand a 16-foot storm surge, but along the coast, where at least 80 people were reported dead, the surge rose to as high as 27 feet.

Most of Ellis family evacu-ated to Jackson, but his father stayed behind to watch over their property, and his brother remained because he did not want to leave his father, Ellis said.

He could not be reached Tuesday for further comment.

Beginning next fall, Mississippi State University students can buy books and periodicals along with their textbooks at a Barnes and Noble bookstore on campus.

The bookstore will be located in Cullis Wade Depot, which is currently under con-struction next to Davis Wade Stadium on the western side of campus and is expected to be finished by July 2006. The Depot will also include a Mississippi State welcome center, a Starbucks and a clock museum.

The 45,000-square-foot building will resemble a train depot with benches and tables outside. The train depot will correspond with the historic railroad bed that the Depot will be built beside, vice pres-ident of finance and adminis-tration Ray Hayes said.

The bookstore will occu-py the majority of the build-ing. The bottom floor of the

Art is something that is made or produced that will enhance the experience of being human, art department head Kay DeMarsche said. When I make paintings, they represent experiences Ive had or people I know.

In the opening reception of the biannual facul-ty art exhibition Thursday, DeMarsche presented two of her paintings. One, titled Beet N Pear, portrayed a beet and a pear with a dark, almost stormy background.

Art is emotional. That painting was really a play on words. It really means Beaten Pair, said DeMarsche. It is really about a break-up.

Along with DeMarsche, 22 faculty members shared their emotions and talent in the show, including Bill Andrews, Kate Bingaman, Brent Funderburk, Chuck Galey, Marita Gootee, Jeffrey Haupt, Robert Long, Tim McCourt, Patrick Miller, Jamie Mixon, Soon Ee Ngoh, Marc Poole, Jamie Runnells, and Linda Seckinger and five new faculty members: Critz Campbell, James Davis, Rebecca Davis, Jason DeMarte and Herb Rieth.

The exhibit showcases a diverse range of work from members of the department of art, gallery director Bill Andrews said. The show includes

In the dim interior of the Crystal Grill in Greenwood, Takako Saeki took her first bite of catfish. She liked it.

Later, Kilian Faber darted glances at the last piece of pie waiting on a tray a few feet away. He waited while banana pudding and coconut pie were served, wanting to see what would be next. Finally, he sprang from his chair.

It doesnt matter what that is, Ill just eat it, he laughed. It was chocolate pie; Yum, ja, ja, he said after the first bite.

Saeki, a native of Japan, and Faber, a German, were two of 36 foreign Mississippi State University students sampling Southern foods ranging from black-eyed peas to green bean

casserole in a room at the Crystal Grill that once served as the lobby of a hotel. The meal was part of a tour of Mississippi designed to introduce foreign and out-of-state students to the state.

Saeki, who has fallen in love

with Mississippi after two weeks residence, said she liked the visit to the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson and the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale. But her
