"The leftist* will go for this one. ... Thta one is more for the intellectual, M Ayrancigil said, pointing at models. Turkish men wear their moustaches not only to show off their manhood but also to express their political ideology: long and pointy for the right wing, scruffy for the left and beard-attached for the Islamic. "A lot of thought goes into the shape of a moustache," Ayran- cigil J«aid. "We have to he careful because customers do not want to be identified with the wrong crowd!" ' . • Facial hair long has been a popular way for Turkish men to show their political leanings. Lately, however, their barber- shop requests have become even more significant. Turkey, overwhelmingly Muslim, has had a secular system for the past 75 yearn. But growing calls for a larger Islamic role in government have led to tension among secular and religious Turks. Last year, the secular mil= ~ iLary forced Turkey's first Islamic-led government to resign. Since then, the state has taken measures to curb Islamic influences, including banning women from wearing headscarves in public offices and schools ami cracking down on suspected members of radical Islamic groups.

Maurice Sorrell WASHINGTON (AP) — Maurice Sorrell, who captured the history of the civil rights movement on film and who was the first black person to gain admission to the prestigious White House Photographers Association, died June 22. He was 84. SorreHV work carried him through the South during the height of the civil rights era, where he photographed the legendary march from Montgomery to Seima, Ala., led by Martin Luther King, Jr. He worked as a news photographer for the Johnson Publishing Company Inc., publisher of the black magazines Jet and Ebony, in its Washington bureau from 1962 until his retirement in 1993. In 1961, Sorrell joined the White House Photographers Association.

Others go for the thin, short moustache worn by former Prime Minister NocmeUin Erbakan, who was pressured out of power last year. . Many leftists will, oh the other hand, keep their moustaches long and scruffy, Stalin-style. Another favorite of the left-wing intellectual is the thin and slightly upturned moustache, usually accompanied by a goatee, ..'... .'Kenan.Si'vaci, a fitness instruc- tor, for years wore a long pointy moustache that drooped downward. It's a nostalgic style once worn by the old Turkic warriors ofAsia. "1 was a right-wing student then," he explained. Moustache* and beards are forbidden in the military, while public servants can wear only smartly kept moustaches. The moustache serves as a uniform," said Coskun San, a sociology professor, at .Ankara University. "H allows the wearer to show the outside world that he belongs to a communjty, and to prove to his community that he is committed to its norms." The recent ban on Islamic-style beards at'universities wasn't the first time the state stepped in on Turks'shaving habits. After a coup in 1980, the generals banned university professors from growing beards, then the symbol of left-wing intellectuals. Several professorsresigned in protest of the decision. There are, of course, some Turkish men who choose no moustache at all. But the clean-shaven look also can carry meaning; it remains a favorite with Western-looking pro-secular youth and businessmen. 198J 1998 PUBUC RADIO ru/s ^ THt ^ WXPR WANTS TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF MUSIC YOU LIKE. •CLASSICAL M-F9 a.m. 1 p.m.; Sat. 5 p.m.-11 p.m. •FOLK Mon.-Thurs. 7 p.m.-10 p.m. •JAZZ Sun. 1 p.m.-4p.m., 5-Midnight •BLUES Fri, 6 p.m.-Midnight •BIG BAND Mon.-Fri. 1 p.m.-4 .pm. •BLUEGRASS Sat.
