      3 issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  FRESHMEN ONLINE: Reports from campuses across the country show

         computer gear and skills, and how the technology is being put
         to use.

         *   STRICTLY BUSINESS: Students at Northern Virginia Community
             College, many of whom juggle work and studies, have little
             time to go online just for the fun of it.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/v47/i10/10a04001.htm

      *  ELECTION 2000: A party label doesn't define the Republican or
         the Democrat who is in line to take over leadership of a key
         higher-education panel in the House of Representatives.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i10/10a02601.htm

         *   NEW PLAYERS: Retirements and election results could lead
             to a different outlook in Congress on issues important to
             colleges.

      *  DEBATE OVER CHARTER COLLEGES: Discussion of the idea in New
         York illustrates why the concept is attractive to some and
         anathema to others.

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  MUST-HAVE TECHNOLOGY: More institutions are requiring every
         student to own or lease a computer, adding substantially to
         the annual cost of college.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/free/v47/i10/10a03903.htm

      *  LOBBYIST WATCH: Two for-profit heavyweights in distance
         education are the first backers of a new online-learning trade
         association in Washington.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i10/10a02603.htm

      *  HOT TYPE: The University of South Carolina Press's publication
         of an original manuscript of Thomas Wolfe's "Look Homeward,
         Angel" provoked criticism from an instructor at Fayetteville
         Technical Community College who couldn't find a publisher for
         his scholarly edition of the novel.
