The answer was usually the same. It was the people who made life enjoyable in the small, wind-blown'West Texas city.

It's not un- common to see farm animals roaming jields in rural areas surrounding Abilene. One particular lady captured the hearts of the students and typified the spirit of the entire school. Her name was Beulah Cain Arvin, and she was ACU's oldest living alumna. Beulah, a member of the first class to enroll in Childers Classical Institute in 1906, celebrated her l0lst birthday on Nov. 24 in Chapel with the entire student body. he crowd in Moody Coliseum responded with cheers as Beulah waved her handkerchief. Students accompanied the Big Purple in a boisterous version of "Happy Birthday," and it was obvious that Buelah was the sweetheart of ACU. President William J. Teague said, "Not many of us will match Mrs. Arvin's longevity record.

Chapel-skipping seniors sent the word around to all their friends that the Taylor choir would be in Chapel, and freshmen were urged not to miss the big day. Peggy Drennan, director of the Taylor choir, said the elementary students looked forward to performances at ACU. "Coming to ACU to perform is the highlight of their year,', she said. "Of our eight perfor- mances throughout the year, ACU is their favorite place to sing. They love itf' And from the excitement exhibited by the grade school and university students whenever Taylor performed, it was obvious that the fascination was not one-sided. Opening Pu Q, M.

'mf , :Tk av t Students aid flood victim lthough the lighthearted performances of the elementary school choir usually brightened the day, many ACU students had the opportunity to lighten the load for their neighbors in a more serious situation. On Oct. 13 students had a unique chance to help people in the community, as well as fellow students and others associated with the university.

The night before, heavy rains inundated Abilene and surrounding areas, and many sec- tions of the city were damaged by flood waters from rapidly rising creeks and rivers. any students, whose houses and apart- ments in the floodplain near the banks of Cedar Creek, lost most of their possessions. But of the 356 homes that were damaged in the Abilene area, the heaviest losses occurred in homes of families who lived in Abilene year-round. The industrial education department dismissed classes for several days, and students in those classes were allowed to help people sort out their possessions and clean up after the Columbus Day flood. And other students drove around the city and looked for families that needed help.

And although the activity wasn't quite as dramatic as the flood, Christmas for Children, an event sponsored by the Students' Association, did have an impact on its participants. About 300 students were involved in the planning of the annual Christmas gift-giving party. From November until the actual event students spent Saturdays with "their" children who had been selected to participate in the This page: Two field Iarks hop across a frozen pond near the campus.

The list of children had been drawn up from the attendance rolls of the bus programs from Highland and Hillcrest Churches of Christ. A decorated Christmas tree, a movie and, of course, the gifts from Santa were just part of the fun-filled day. he events throughout the year that involv- ed students from ACU were endless. Some were service activities, others were social activitiesg some activities were unique to the year, and others were annual affairs. But all of these events involved people from around the world who cared. That's why the answer to the question "What made people come to the wind-blown West Texas city?" wasn't very difficult. The people made the difference. Opening 1 1 W, L W,,. QW' ? 'F' 3 Wy W glee, QM 'H 'Vi ,,k 'K Q., W 12 - Events ,J Comm Qrformancoyld .. , 4 10 I ' O - 'WY lf? GH! 'fy i161-foglf? 6643, A whirlwind weekend of Homecoming activities, Beulah's l0lst birthday celebration and the inauguration of ACU's 'ninth presi- dent, Dr. William J, Teague, were just a few of the events that attracted thousands of visitors to the campus throughout the year. The involvementof students and others associated with the university in the various happenings didn't center on the activities of a few in- dividuals, but included a broad spec- trum of people from the president of the university to the shy freshmen at.Brownwood for Fish Camp '82. The Students' Association com- mittees sponsored a wide variety of activities. At .their invitation, Ronnie Milsap, a popular country-western music star. performed on campus, and Barry Rosen, a former Iranian hostage, spoke to students and members of the community. The committees sponsored Christmas for Children and were involved in plan- ning Almost Anything Goes. Some of the events drew large crowds, while others interested only a few peopley And some required months of planning and preparation, while others appeared to be put together on the spur of the moment.

W, omecoming activities honor Chancellor, Mr .Stevens "A Tribute to John C. Stevensw was an appropriate theme for Homecoming ac- tivities Oct. 29-Nov. 1. Dr. Stevens, former president of ACU, and his wife, Ruth, were recognized throughout the festivities in honor of their 12 years of leadership and service to the university. Stevens became the university's second chancellor Aug. 27, 1981, when Dr. William J. Teague assumed the presidency. Preparation for the weekend began early in the semester when Sandy Sweeney, an English major from Tullahoma, Tenn., and Tim Myrick, an accounting major from Fort Worth, were selected to serve as Homecoming co-chairmen. Traditional activities such as Freshman Follies, the musical and Homecoming Chapel were once again favorites, but visitors on the campus enjoyed many other activities planned by the faculty and students. Anticipation of the weekend began earlier in the week when the student body selected the Homecoming Queen from 14 senior nominees. The nominees and the Coming Home Queen, Zoe Conner An- drews, were honored with a reception Friday. Mrs. Andrews provided an unexpected delight throughout the weekend activities. She entertained Chapel-goers Friday with her comical entrance and joking with President Teague. And during the football game, she delighted the crowd with her an- tics and led a yell with the Wildcat cheerleaders. Excitement mounted as the week pro- gressed, and many parents, alumni and friends arrived Friday for opening Chapel in Moody Coliseum. West Texas weather cooperated, and the weekend was sunny and pleasant. More than 6,000 students, parents and friends enjoyed an outdoor barbecue lunch that was funded by the university. "Carnival Island," a fund-raiser spon- sored by the schoo1's social clubs and organizations provided entertainment and enjoyment for those who participated. The booths included Delta Theta's mechanical bull, Galaxy's dunking machine and Zeta Rho Alpha's "decorate a cookie" booth. Students from all four classes rang the campus bell continuously from opening Chapel until the Homecoming football game. The activity was an effort to revive the tradition of ringing the bell before each home game. "South Pacific," a musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and a production of the ACU Theatre, delighted crowds at the Abilene Civic Center with four performances. "They,re Playing Our Song" was the theme for Freshman Follies. The six crowd-pleasing performances includec skits and musical entertainment, both in- strumental and vocal. The entertainment was varied, and the musical acts rangec from classical works to top 40 and jazz pieces. One of the most memorable acts of the performance, "They're Telling Our Tale,' was an all-male skit, which included a cast of punk rock characters, Tinkerbelle, 2 prince, and a king and his daughters. The weekend activities climaxed wher Lori Osburn, a social work major fron Columbia, Mo., was crowned Homecom- ing Queen during the halftime activities oi the Stephen F. Austin game. The Wildcat: easily defeated the Lumberjacks, 31-0. Homecoming activities concluded Sun- day with a luncheon honoring Chancellor Stevens. Approximately 900 guests attend- ed the luncheon and the introduction of th: .lohn C. and Ruth Stevens Scholarship More than 1,000 ACU alumni and friend: contributed to the fund.

We were restricted to the campus, and we would walk down the way for a certain distance and kick our feet over the end so we could say we'd been off the campus," said Byrd R. Lewis, a graduate of the class of 1923. Although the students in 1923 fand many other years, as wellj found excite- ment in getting "off the campus," today most alumni find even more excitement in coming back to campus. Homecoming, more than any other event of the year, is a time when many come back to become reacquainted with old friends, meet new people and become involved in the universityis activities. ACU exes who visited the campus Oct. 30-Nov. 1 during Homecoming weekend were eager to express their thoughts about the differences between ACU today and the time when they were students. School policies, rules and the dress code were common topics for the returning alumni.

Charles Anderson, a graduate of the class of 1957, said, "We thought the rules were kind of strict, but as I look back, they were not as strict as we thought they weref, "ACU helped me more than I would have been helped otherwise," said Sidney Blankenship of the class of 1966, 'ibut that's not to say everybody has a free trip when they leave here. Everybody still has rules they must deal with, rules that even go back farther than ACU. You can't change everybody in four years." Carol Cayce Clinton, of the class of 1967, talked humorously about the dress code while she was in college. "We could not wear pants unless we were going bowl- ing or planned to participate in other sports activities. And many girls who 'went bowling' never went bowling." Charles Cayce, also of the class of 1967, spoke seriously about the differences of college students ofthe past and present. "The era in which we grew up was started with our parents and reinforced by the school," he said. 'SWe thought as long as we stayed in the church and married somebody from the church, we would turn out all right. "But that is not a reality of life. I think the kids here now have a lot more understanding of what realistic life is about. They have a better chance to make a success of their lives." Leaving the discussion of rules and dress codes aside, Mrs. Clinton verbalized a feel- ing known by many ACU alumni. "What you really have all through your life, will be the friends you've made in college." It is those friends and the memories they helped create that make "coming back" have such special meaning to many ACU alumni.

No, that problem was cured in 1957 when an activity known as Sing Song was prescribed. Since then Sing Song has become a major production involving thousands of people and man hours. Each person's four-minute participation on stage required many long hours of nightly practices, sear- ches for costume makers, frantic purchases of tickets for parents in the "nose bleed" section of Moody Coliseum and searches for motel reservations. The theme for the 26th annual Sing Song was "Command Performance." Sing Song coordinator John Duty and co-chairmen Roxy Halekakis, senior business education major from Eagle Pass, and Jon Howard, junior bankingffinance major from Tex- arkana, chose the theme in honor of Dr. William J. Teague's inauguration that weekend. Duty, the co- chairmen, the hosts and hostesses produced the Friday night, Saturday afternoon and evening performances Feb. 19 and 20. The three shows resulted in some unusual occurrences. One club was dismissed entirely from the program, another club sang longer than the four-minute limit each nightg one class complained about another class that used a similar special effect from the previous yearg and an audience member fell and was injured. The excitement of Sing Song was dampened somewhat Friday night when a 42-year-old Abilene man fell down several steps in the coliseum. Bill Love, 1535 Oak St., cut his head and broke his elbow in the fall. This page: Nancy Chester and Dita Keesee perform the theme from "Fame" with the freshmen ushers.

Members of the junior class also claimed they were injured. They filed a complaint with Duty charging the freshman class with taking their finale, a costume change to form a Texas flag, from the juniors' 1981 performance. Duty and the co- chairmen overruled the complaint, and the show went on. Between each groupis four-minute presentation, the hosts and hostesses, provided a variety of musical entertainment. Hosts David Baker, senior public relations major from Dallas, and John Muns, senior marketing major from Plano, combined their talents with those of hostesses Nancy Chester, senior radio-television major from Austin, and Dita Keesee, junior music major from Lubbock, to sing songs from the pop and country charts. From upbeat songs like "Fantasy" and "Boy from New York Cityf, to the more mellow tunes of "Sail- ingn and "Berkeley Squaref, the foursome proved their musical versatility. Halfway through each perfor- mance the hosts, hostesses, freshman ushers and the jazz ensemble filled the coliseum with balloons and vibrations of the song "Fame" In the women's social club competition, the women of GATA found their "Thrill of ACU Hill" as "Girls Scout Boys of America." Then the GATA Boy Scouts transformed into brides "who always get their man." The club won first in originality and costume and second in vocal. The women of Zeta Rho Alpha performed as "a trash can for the count" and "Can-Cann girls. The black and gray garbage cans sang the importance of trash collectors and the respect due them. The Kappa Delian Shri women melted in the au- dienceis heart, not in its hands, dressed as M8LM candies. Costumed in brown, yellow, green and orange, they sang tribute to the chocolate candies. Not stopping for any red lights in the competition, Sigma Theta Chi dressed as yellow traffic lights and received awards for first place in vocal and second place in costume.

The men of Frater Sodalis opened the menis competition dressed as flies, and won first place awards in all three categories A vocals, costume and originality. The Frat flies buzzed through songs like "We Don't Need No Fumigation, We Don't Need No Pest Control,', and "All the Flys in California are Dead on the Ground in Beverly Hills." Posed as striking air traffic controllers and baseball players, the men of Galaxy sang f'Strike Me, Strike Me." Blaming President Ronald Reagan for their unemployment, they sang, "Let's talk salary W let me hear your lawyer talkf, Centurion, in its third Sing Song performance, stuck together as Siamese twins and placed se- cond in vocal.

"Breakfast of Championsn ended the menis competition, as the Kinsmen sang about the morning meal. The club won second place in its costumes of sunny-side-up eggs and slices of toast. The men of Trojans were not allowed to per- form in Sing Song. Although they appeared in the program and went through the Wednesday night dress rehearsal, they were eliminated from the Sing Song during the Thursday night practice after a hat and mask were thrown or accidentally knocked into the orchestra pit. Soon after the incident Duty and Garvin Beauchamp, vice-president for student services, told Trojans they would not be allowed to per- form, because they violated a verbal rule that ob- jects and items thrown into the music pit were legitimate cause for ejection from the program.

The senior class chose "America's Heroes: The Dallas Cowboys" as its game plan, which scored points for the seniors as they won second in vocal and costume. The class sang about the doomsday defense, Tom Landry and "cool" Charlie Waters. Admitting that they left their hearts in San Fran- cisco this season, the Cowboys assured the au- dience that next year they'll "Make It." Senior class director Mark Love described Sing Song as "about the funnest thing that happens during the course of the yearf, Not only was Sing Song fun, it also was quite profitable - the three performances brought in about 525,000 Student participants recommend- ed how the proceeds be used. After those recom- mendations went before the administrative com- mittees, the participants voted on what projects the money would go to. A 55,000 grant to Spring Break Campaigns and 520,000 to light the in- tramural field were chosen. After the money was counted and the balloons removed from the Coliseum, students returned to the studies and classes that during Sing Song preparations somehow became extracurricular. - M arybeth Perkins This page: top - Sophomores, winners in vocal, custome and orginality, salute the royal couple,' bottom - ACU's Prince and Princess of Wales are presented to the crowd by the sophomores.

An event that parents and alumni traveled hundreds of miles to attend. Audience members saw each group's four-minute presentation, the hosts and hostesses' numbers and the announcement of win- ners. But what were the performers' thoughts aboutparticipating in Sing Song? "You can't exchange the feeling you get for anything . . . it won't compare to anything else." -'Y Steve Laman, senior Kinsmen participant "It's been fun. We CSub T-165 hadn't really given that much to it, we practiced probably about five times before tonight. It makes it fun for us because if we don't win anything, there is no disappointment ...fi - Ken Teagle, Sub T-16 participant from Abilene "It CTrojans' ejectionj is all blown out of pro- portion . . . all these other clubs say they are going to walk off or something like that, and I really wouldnlt want that to happen. Uustj because our parents are suffering, why should others suffer?,' - Bill Lamkin, sophomore Trojan member from Houston "Being in a performance like Sing Song is always fun, especially when you're with your friends, and when we're all working toward the goal to win. 'It doesn't seem like fun, but all the hard work pays off in the end." - Kendall Wad- dill, GA TA participant from Denton This page: top - Frater Sodalis director David Roach teaches the club tojlyg bottom - Early in the Sing Song rehearsal season Kelly Ong and Geri Mooney practice Zeta songs.

Sing Song Leetureship enters 6NeW Era, by Marybeth Perkins en thousand people, more than 50 different speakers from around the world and a 60-by-330 foot tent filled with books about every conceivable subject. It may sound like a state fair, but it's not. It's Lectureship. , Some came from Austria, Alaska, Switzerland and the Caribbean. Others just walked across campus. "A New Era in World Evangelism" was the theme for the 64th annual Lectureship Feb. 21-24, which was directed by Dr. Carl Bracheen, professor of Bible. Lec- tureship was planned for the same weekend as Sing Song so that visitors could attend all of the activities. People came to hear speakers, rekindle old friend- ships and be a part of one of the largest single gatherings of Christians. To many students, four days of Lec- tureship meant teachers dismissing classes and allowing students to attend lectures. Some used that time to try to catch up on lost sleep and recover from post-Sing Song ailments. To others, it meant a time for meeting people, visiting with friends from home and hearing speakers discuss problems, concerns, praises and hopes surrounding Christianity today. On Sunday afternoon, students re- ceived recognition at a Parents Day lun- cheon. Jennifer Fritts Carpenter, an education major from Abilene, and Alan De Jarnatt, a biology major from Fayet- teville, Tenn., were recognized as Honor Man and Honor Lady. Approximately 44 other students named to Who's Who In American Colleges and Universities also were recognized. Guests of honor at the luncheon were Mr. and Mrs. Rich Garrett of Brownwood, and the families of their identical twin sons, Dr. Don Garrett of Abilene and Dr. R. E. "Dick" Garrett of Amarillo. The family was chosen as ACU's generation Moody Coliseum is full to overflowing as Jimmy Allen of Harding University speaks on "Persuading Men to Receive Jesus," the opening address of the 64th annual Bible Lectureship. "A New Era in World Evangelism" was the themefor the Lectureship, which featured seven main speakers and 50 classes. family of the year. To open the Lectureship events Sun- day night, Jimmy Allen, associate pro- fessor of Bible at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., spoke to the crowd of 4,000 on "Persuading Men to Receive Jesus." He used what he called the four C's of evangelism - conviction, Christ, conversion and compulsion. As far as persuading souls to Christ, Allen reminded the audience that at- titude plays an important part. "If one's faith is in the fluency of a preacher, large numbers of disciples, the beauty of the church building or in the devotion of his parents, he is powerless indeed," said Allen. "However, if his faith is in the crucified and risen Lord, he is connected to the power of God . . . because there are plenty of people who would like to have Jesus as Savior but not as Lord." On Monday morning, a women's class taught by Irene Johnson Gatewood, of Vienna, Austria, discussed NA Woman's Insight Into Women's Work in the Mission Field." She had worked in the mission field in Frankfurt, Germany, since 1948. Mrs. Gatewood made comparisons of women missionaries today and women in Paul's letter to the church at Rome. She called the Apostle Paul "one of the best persons in the Bible," because "he gave recommendation to women in the church." At the Alumni Day luncheon on Mon- day afternoon, Dr. J. P. Gibson was honored as the Outstanding Alumnus of the Year. While on the Board of Trustees for ACU, Gibson was active in helping modify admission policies in the 1960s so that all races could attend ACU. Dr. Gibson graduated from ACU in 1925 and served as ACU's college physician from 1933 to 1943. The speaker for Tuesday night,s lecture was Doug Kostowski, minister of the Cen- tral Church of Christ in Miami. He talked about urban evangelism and spreading Godis word past the regional area of the Bible belt. He compared Christ and his apostles to the legendary King Arthur and the knights of the round table. Kostowski pointed out that like God's kingdom, Camelot held a magnetizing attraction that drew people to his feet. He said that we should be as anx- ious as the knights and the apostles to spread and share the personal joy to the untouched souls of the world. The Wednesday night speaker was Lan- don Saunders, spokesman for the nation- wide radio show "Heartbeat." In regard to the 21st century Christian and the new era in world evangelism, Saunders asked the question, "Who will love the world?,' He focused on the lack of vision Chris- tians have in today's society. "If we don't have a dream we lose ourselves and we lose our children,', he said. "Without such a vi- sion, we will dry up. Life will be taken from us." One of the major enemies that blurs Christian eyesight, he said, is the destruc- ting aspects of self interest. The people who cherish and love the world will be the ones who acquire the 20-20 vision of Chris- tianity, said Saunders. Two popular Lectureship classes for university students were Paul Faulkner's "Pillars of Marriage" and Jeff Wallingis "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll 4 Parents and Teens, How are You Coping?" Faulkner listed eight functions and disfunctions of marriage, and the committ- ment involved in producing a strong, withstanding bondage of two people. In his lecture, Walling said that mixing rock music and Christian lifestyles always has caused controversy. Recently much at- tention has been given to music and devil worshipping, he said. His presentation dealt with exposing na- tionally known rock groups and their pro- fessed beliefs of the underworld via songs, album covers and backward masking. One student who attended Walling's class, Gayla Bowerman, a sophomore ac- counting major from Abilene, said, "I was very glad to be made aware of the 'goings on' in the world of rock 'n' roll. I was not aware there was so much devil worship- ping in our worldf, Another lectureship event, the annual Mass Communication Evangelism Sym- posium in the Don H. Morris Center, opened a variety of discussion of the roles of media and communication in the new age of world evangelism. Two of the topics Lectureship 33 Une dies returning from ACU in the symposium were teaching the gospel in the Soviet Union and effective uses of the broadcast media. Dana Blocker, retired editor of the Sher- man Democrat, and two well-known hym- nists, Tillet S. Teddlie and L. O. Sander- son were honored during the symposium awards presentation. Blocker received the Christian Service Through Communication Award, and Teddlie and Sanderson received awards for Excellence in Christian Communication. Many were saddened when a church bus returning to California overturned near Odessa. .Iannell Viduarri, a former ACU student, was killed in the accident, and nine other passengers were injured. Many people who attended Lectureship have participated during previous years. The pilgrimage every year provides "food for the soulf' said Gene Arnold, a regular attender and a speaker in the Mass Com- munication Evangelism Symposium. "I like the wide variety of classes and lectures that cover a broad scope of the work of the church and the needs of in- dividual Christians," Arnold said. NI find it a very practical theme," he said, "meeting the needs of the people, which makes it interesting and valuable for me." Concerning the students' hospitality to guests on campus, he said, "They have been very kind and very cooperative. I know it puts the students out, but I ap- preciate their friendliness."

Stevens retired as president to become chancellor, the official inaugura- tion ceremony was not until Lectureship weekend. Twelve years earlier Stevens also was inaugurated on Lectureship weekend. Teague attended four receptions on in- auguration day and spent the early part of the morning greeting 180 delegates from other universities and colleges, visiting with members of the Board of Trustees, and welcoming approximately 100 of his special guests. The guests included members of the Na- tional Development Council, the Board of Trustees, student body representatives and city administrators. Approximately 68,000 invitations to the inauguration were sent to alumni, parents and friends of the university, and about 2,750 more invitations went to colleges, universities and other societies. And with a crowd of approximately 2,500 to 3,000 people in Moody Coliseum, 36 Inauguration Ray McGlothlin Jr., chairman of the Board of Trustees, directed the inaugura- tion event which began at 10 a.m. One of the highlights of the ceremony was a reading by President Teague's son, Tom, of Dallas of some of his father's favorite biblical passages. The music, written specially for the event, was composed by faculty members of the ACU music department. The pro- cessional, "Fanfare and Celebration," was written by Dr. Sally Reid, associate pro- fessor of music and chairman of the department. The inaugural anthem, "The Spirit of Freedomf' was by Dr. M. L. Daniels, pro- fessor of music. The recessional, "Proces- sion of the Celebrants,', was composed by Ed George, associate professor of music and director of orchestra. Numerous members of the student body, as well as faculty, participated in the inauguration ceremony. Bart Castle, presi- dent of the Students' Association, brought greetings from the students to the new president, and Mark Pickle, president of the freshman class, gave the invocation. Dr. Tommy McCord, chairman of the chemistry department and of the Faculty Senate, welcomed the president on behalf which were given to him by the AC chapter of Alpha Chi, a national hon! society.

E very person is vulnerable to the strong herd instinct in our culture, but students at a Christian school should learn to make moral decisions rather than merely follow the herd, he said. He also spoke of the importance of Christian teachers who provide the "initial sparks" that encourage students to live lives of leadership and service "in a society craving character and sensitivity more than just knowledge and expertise." Beth McCasland, director of special events for ACU, said she was impressed with the grandness involved throughout the inaugural celebrations, and the size and detailed attention of the inauguration. "The numbers of delegates were im- pressed with the efficiency and organiza- tion of the inaugurationf, she said. 'LI think they really enjoyed themselves and enjoyed meeting old friends and new acquaintances." Following the inaugural ceremony, more than 1,800 people gathered for the luncheon in the Grand Hall of the Abilene Civic Center,'the largest crowd ever seated in the hall, said Cheryl Mann, ACU news information director. Dr. Stevens presided at the luncheon, and Dr. Orval Filbeck, professor of educa- tion, gave the invocation. The Sing Song hosts and hostesses, David Baker, John Muns, Nancy Chester and Dita Keesee, provided musical enter- tainment and a sneak preview of Sing Song 1982, "Command Performance," which was performed the same weekend. The speaker at the luncheon, a by- invitation-only event, was Justice Jack Pope, senior justice of the Texas Supreme Court. Pope, a graduate of Abilene High School, a 1934 ACU graduate and a member of the ACU Board of Trustees, continued the emphasis of Teague's in- augural address. He told the audience how precious the people were who devoted their lives to Christian education. The Abilene native said, "High standards of teaching and the teaching of high standards are two of the most important goals for upper leve education? He emphasized the im- portance of enduring values to achieve those goals.

Pope also said he wished he could be op- timistic about the future, but he believed that values were decaying. f'We are living in a culture characterized by greed, cor- ruption, waste and the attitude that if you've got a bank account you can do anything," he said. "We are paying too dearly in the world today for a cotton- candy culture." P ope said he was optimistic concerning Christian education and the future, He commented that institutions like these "will keep a grip on those standards to which we simply must hold on." During the inaugural luncheon U.S. Rep. Charles Stenholm brought greetings from the nation. Stenholm said Teague could not fill Stevens' shoes, but he could be proud if he "wears out another pair moving in the same general direction." The Student Foundation and the ln- augural Committee, which included members of the student body, organized the luncheon. Students also assisted the delegates with their robes before the inaugural ceremony as well as serving at a reception after the inauguration. I eague received numerous letters of con- gratulations from dignitaries throughout the nation. Vice President George Bush, U.S. Sen. John Tower, Texas Gov. Bill Clements and Texas House Speaker Bill Clayton were among those who sent their best wishes. In addition to the inaugural activities, a special 12-page supplement to the Abilene Reporter-News commemorated Teague's inauguration. Feature articles within the tabloid in- cluded biographical pieces on Teague and his family, an interview with Stevens, and photo features on the involvement of the university with the Abilene community through the arts, athletic programs and community service.

X Inauguration - 41 'The Rainmaker' ed Starnes directs "The Rainmaker," the first Dinner Theatre production of the year, featured the directing abilities of Ted Starnes, associate professor of drama. Starnes, who first joined the ACU faculty in 1970, returned in 1979, after serving for three years as director of theater at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif. The romantic comedy by N. Richard Nash, set in the late 1920s in a drought- ridden Midwestern state, centered on the Rainmaker's visit to the Curry family farm. Starbuck, the rainmaker and travel- 42 Dinner Theatre ing shyster who came to town, was played by Kevin Weems, a senior drama major from Temple. The story began with the return home of the Curry daughter, Lizzie, played by Donna Hester, a part-time post-graduate student from Abilene. A summer-long drought plagued Lizzie's father's and brothers' ranch, while a drought of love left shy, plain Lizzie unmarried and on her way to becoming an old maid, much to the dismay of her brothers, Jimmy and Noah. But when the Rainmaker came to town, the stage was well-set for romance and comedy. Starbuck, dressed entirely in black, entered the Curry home and prom- ised to send rain within 24 hours. Although Lizzie and the family were unwilling to trust him at first, he eventually gained Liz- zie's love and the respect of her father and brothers. But as the 24-hour period ended, with no rain in sight, a defeated Starbuck prepared to leave the family and Lizzie.

The April Dinner Theatre, updated for the l980s by Lewis Fulks, ACU Theatre director, centered around Whiteside's un- willing stay in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Stanley, played by senior drama majors Kevin Weems and Dczarae Gaines. Whiteside had been a pre-Christmas din- ner guest at the Stanley home, but injured 44 Dinner Theatre his hip in a fall on his host's icy porch and stayed to convalesce. However, the house guest soon ran the house. Whiteside commandeered the Stanley's servants and telephone, en- couraged their son to run away and their daughter to elope with a union organizer, and entertained a stream of unusual and famous guests, all at the Stanley's expense. But while Whiteside spent his energies disrupting the Stanley household, his secretary Maggie Cutler fell in love with local newspaperman Bert Jefferson, played 4 by Barry Smoot, junior music major. Mag- gie, portrayed by Rebecca Carpenter, sophomore drama education major from Webb City, Mo., disregarded Whiteside's attempts to break up her romance. So her boss summoned actress Loraine Sheldon, played by Deborah Gardner, sophomore drama major from Arlington, to lure Mag- gie's suitor away. A few skirmishes later, all was well and the recuperated Whiteside started out of the Stanley's door.

Originally three performances were planned, but the tickets were in such demand that the drama division scheduled another performance, said Lewis Fulks, director of the ACU Theatre. The play, the story of Joan of Arc, examined the century-old question: Was Joan a courageous woman of God or a deluded farm girl? Joan of Arc was played by Elizabeth Sexton Mann, a drama major from Fort Worth. Fulks said the story chronicled the dramatic con- frontations ofthe 16-year-old who became the symbol of courage for France. "Joan is a model for us, too," he said, "when we ap- ply her convictions to ourselves.

The company, chartered during the fall semester with 60 members, consisted of undergraduates, graduates, alumni and off-campus friends. Fulks said the concept behind the company was to provide the best theatrical training in order to produce qualified performers and technicians with variety and depth in theater skills. He also said that eventually the company would be the exclusive source of personnel for all ACU dramatic productions except the Homecoming musical, which would be cast by open auditions.

Theatre 47 Milsap comes to Mood "Milsap Magic." That's what happens when you mix one talented country enter- tainer with a variety of music styles, humor, piano dancing and fireworks. That magic came to Moody Coliseum Sept. 22 in the form of Ronnie Milsap and his band and female backup vocalists. The country singer set a change-of-pace mood for the evening by surprising the au- dience with firecrackers on the stage and with a range of works by Beethoven, Bruce Springsteen and' the Eagles. He also sprinkled humor throughout the perfor- mance, often joking about his blindness - "The guys let me drive the bus from Austin." Milsap said he feels responsible for the success of each concert. "I have a friend who works in TV in Los Angeles who sometimes helps me put the show together, but I'm the one responsible for whether it works or fails." And this time it worked. The near sellout crowd showed its appreciation of Milsap's antics and music by responding with cheers when he began "What a Dif- ference You Made ln My Life," "Smoky Mountain Rain," and his other hits. The crowd listened intently as he sang several songs from his new album "There's No Gettin' Over Me," and when he left the stage, the audience called him back with applause and cheering for an encore. The secret to Milsap's magic appears to be his attitude - he says he loves perform- ing in spite of the physical demands of touring. Many days when he's tired and has not been able to rest, Milsap says he begins to wonder why he continues to tour the country. lt's not "until you step behind that stage, and feel the energy, electricity and love, that you know why you came," he said. "lt's amazing." That feeling came across in Moody in the form of an exciting, fast-moving show. The combination of that and the au- dience's love for Milsap and what he does all goes together as "Milsap Magic." 48 Ronnie Milsap 7 Concert provides fun for fan "People who come to our concert should expect to have a lot of fun," contemporary Christian singer Amy Grant told a local television station before' her Abilene concert. And from Gary Chapman's warm up -- ACU-purple top and gray pants - to the hand-clapping encore of "Old Man's Rub- ble," the crowd that gathered March 2 in the Taylor County Coliseum had fun. Gary's low-key combination of self- disparaging humor and sincere worship contrasted with the professional, high- powered band that performed with Amy. A pianist, drummer, synthesizer player, three vocalists and three guitarists, in- cluding Gary, backed up Amy on such familiar songs as "Pd Love to Live on a Mountain Top" and "My Father's Eyes." But the band specialized in, as Amy put it, "more rowdy numbers" such as "Look What Has Happened to Me" and a mostly instrumental, Bach-inspired number that they seemed to really enjoy doing together. But Amy was at her best sitting on a stool under dimmed lights talking about her beliefs or singing acoustical ballads with the band playing softly behind her. The audience, much of it ACU and Hardin-Simmons University students, responded a bit self-consciously to Amy's attempts to teach a new song. But as the concert continued, audience members became more uninhibited. Amy's simple a cappella rendition of "It Is Well With My Soul" late in the concert drew a deeper response as the audience gradually and softly joined her. Another number that especially touched the crowd was a song Amy and Gary sang to each other, a song he had written just before they became engaged. "There's a feeling in my heart that I've just got to let you see," Gary sang. Amy joined him with, "No matter where time takes us, both together and apart, I will always be a part of you." - Kelly Deatherage Amy Grant 49 Captivity leaves Rosen thoughtful, not bitter ore than a year had passed since Barry Rosen and 51 other American citizens returned to the United States after 14 and a half mon- ths of captivity in various Iranian cities. Rosen, former U.S. press attache at the embassy in Tehran, spoke Nov. 19 in Cullen Auditorium on "Iran As I Saw It." Approximately 700 people waited for the former hostage to give detailed descriptions of his confinement and his captors. But Rosen surprised the audience, mainly university students, as he began an hour-long speech. He did not dwell on his captivity as he spoke. Instead, he concentrated on Iranian history and events leading to revolution and the rise to power of the Ayatollah Khomeini. Rosen explained his attitude about cap- tivity: "I think the media want me to say how I hate Iranians and how Iranians are bad, and Americans are wonderful. We have to sit down and think about the Ira- nian situation as more than just that and learn from it. I don't think we've learned from it." He said it was important to try to evaluate and understand events leading to this explosive period in Iran rather than condemn the entire culture. Rosen, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., became familiar with the Iranian culture as a result of a two-year Peace Corps assignment in Iran. The U.S. government should have been concerned about domestic affairs and human rights in Iran, he said. Instead, the government thought about what Iran could do for the United States in relation to the Soviet Union. "Khomeini is now accepted by the students and the rest of the Iranian public," he said. "As long as he lives, Iran 50 Barry Rosen, will have stability, regardless of how the country appears to observers." The insight and positive attitude that Rosen exhibited throughout the speech and the question and answer session that followed his delivery, were remarkable as he gave details of his "sojourn into agony." He spent six months in a maximum security prison and during the entire time prison cell for many months, and you kno' you haven't done anything wrong it's reall devastating," he said. "We take mobilit for granted as if it's a right, not a privilege In Iran it's no right at all, and no privileg - it's nothing." Several times throughout captivitj Rosen said he thought his captors intende to kill him. As part of a "game" they hel 'We have to sit down and think about the Iranian situation - and learn from it.' he was confined, he was allowed outside for only four and a half hours. Rosen said he meditated, jogged and exercised in his prison cell, and thought about his family throughout his captivity. "Thoughts about my wife and my two young children sustained me more than anything else during those tortured hoursf' he said. Rosen said an uneasy feeling existed in the embassy before the takeover by Ira- nian militants. But the embassy officials continued to believe promises of protection from the Iranian government, and they tried to dispel the uneasy thoughts, he said. "The first day after surrendering the embassy they fthe militantsj bound each of us with nylon cord. We were positioned face to face and told to sleep," Rosen said. "I tried to sleep but the cord continued to tighten around my wrists and feet. I began to settle down and think about my wife, Barbara, my two children, Alexander and Ariana. What must they be going through? Do they know what is happening?" "When you're locked up in a room or a a gun to his head. The day when Rosen learned he was 1 be released, one of the militant studeni tried to convince him that he and othi Americans had been treated well. Ros replied, "You made those that love Irj hate you." He said he had good memories abou Iran and does not hold grudges against 1 feel hatred for the people in Iran despi his treatment. Rosen also commented on the publici and acclaim the hostages received wh: they returned home: "We were called heroes, but I don't co: sider myself a hero," he said. "The hero were the eight servicemen who lost the lives in an attempt to rescue us." - Marybetli Perkins and Suzetta Nutt "Iran As I Saw It" was the topic of speech given by former Iranian hosta, Barry Rosen.

Morris, former first lady of ACU. She was on TV and in newspapers, and was the oldest living ACU alumna. Her name was Beulah Cain Arvin, and she was 101 years old. Originally, the idea of presenting the school's oldest living alumnus was intend- ed to be a highlight of the 75th Anniver- sary celebration. But Beulah was such a hit on campus that she was recognized again on Nov. 24, 1981, her l0lst birthday. Norman Archibald, associate dean of students, directed the birthday celebration. As he outlined the details for the second "Beulah bash," Archibald said that the celebration required a great deal of plan- ning and the help of many people, but the excitement of the day and the fun of being around Beulah rewarded those involved for their efforts. "She is probably the most unique woman that I've ever met - to know all these facts and to remember all these events like they just happened yesterday," Archibald said. "She is really neat, and she was a lot of fun to be around." With Abilene media representatives in attendance, the celebration began in Chapel as the Big Purple marched in, play- ing "March Grandiosof' The student body responded with a standing ovation and enthusiastic cheers. Lights and cameras framed the stage, 52 Beulah Cain Arvin which was filled with school dignitaries bearing gifts for the honoree. And graciously, amid fanfare worthy of any Broadway opening, Beulah's hanky - her symbol to ACU students - began to flut- ter. From the audience, a few responded by waving tissues. An enormous cake, complete with lOl candles, was wheeled in. Gifts from ACU included a stuffed bear with "Number 1" on it and a plant. Several birthday cards from students were read aloud. One card, which won great approval from students, suggested that Beulah meet the writer's great- grandfather, if she didn't mind younger men - he was 99. Following the ceremony, a balloon- covered golf cart, driven by Courtney Con- nell, a senior from Sweetwater, whisked the birthday girl off to her reception. After Beulah was helped into the sporty cart, she was driven down the center aisle of Moody Coliseum. She didn't even seem alarmed at the quick take-off. From the continual cheering of the crowd, it seemed that Beulah was their sweetheart. "She didnlt know until she got in the golf cart that she was going to ride in it," Archibald said. "Her great-niece told me that if she knew, she might tell everybody that she wanted to walk." Archibald continued, "So I didn't give her a chance. They brought her from the stage, and she climbed up in that thing just like we had planned. She's spunky - quick mind." Beulah was the guest of honor 2 luncheon for her family and special fri: where Vice President Robert D. Hu read more birthday cards. Archibald said he was pleased with the really sincere things our students cz up with." ACU gave Beulah a photo album, wl contained photographs of her various cj pus visits, and a music box that playedl alma mater. For a student body that had bect sated with "uncommon" events previous year, the response to the day surprisingly warm. An unconscious grin curled across face of freshman Sue Christmas as reflected on the big day. The descriptio her feelings about Beulah showed typical wonder at Mrs. Arvin's longevit She said the real fascination Beulah was that she "represents what ' be. She's special because she was hex the beginning." . Did Sue think all of the celebration justified? "Definitely," she said. - Amy Hatf This page: President William J.

Although the children received gifts, freshman Kim Glover said she and other student volunteers were equally rewarded, proving that Christmas isn'tjust for children. "You just feel better when you help others. You probably learn more than they do. You realize you just don't have it as bad. lt just brightens your whole day," said Kim. Kim said the volunteers gained a sense of worth as the children openly demon- strated their admiration and love. S'They,re like any other groupf' Kim said. '6They like to be noticed and touched. They want to touch or hug . . . It's just the attention." Besides the 300 students actively in- volved in the project, many others helped finance it. Donations to pay for the Christmas celebration were collected in different ways. Approximately 51,300 was donated by students via social clubs. A pass-the-hat style Chapel collection pro- duced S400. An exhibition basketball game pitting the Wildcats against the team from the University of Chihuahua grossed Sl,250, and the Students' Association donated Sl ,000. l The students involved in the projec' spent Saturdays from the middle o November until the first week ir December with 6'their', children. V olunteers were encouraged to make individual visits with the children? families, and special group events were art ranged, such as the showing of Wal Disneyis "lOl Dalmations" and ice crean outings.

An untraditional interpretation of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," by senior Gary Hanna, provided a change of pace for the party before the appearance of Santa Claus, played by sophomore Daryl Zeller. His performance, or at least his huge sack of toys, seemed enough to convince even the most cynical 9-year-olds that Santa was real. anta's sack of toys was filled with gifts S wrapped and tagged for each child. Junior accounting majors Paula Garrett and Polly Robinson bought and wrapped the 300 gifts. The women matched the gifts to the children's ages and tried not to give children from the same family the same present. Polly, who helped with last year's gifts, said a group of volunteers wrapped from 8 p.m. to midnight three days before all the gifts were wrapped. "But it was worth it," she said. nThe kids loved the gifts." o-chairmen Terry Hendon, Scott C Taylor and Lori Stobaugh began Christmas for Children plans in the sum- mer. They selected group leaders and organized the activity, which was intended to enrich the holiday season for needy youngsters. Hendon said one of the top priorities was to locate children who would i i l most benefit from the effort. Students had an opportunity to follow up on contacts made with the needy children at an April 2 circus.

The activities of each group of campaigners differed in the methods of ministry and evangelism that were used according to the area and the needs of the people in that area, Bishop said. Lane Langford, freshman Bible major from Weslaco and leader of the team to Oshkosh, said the group was involved in "seed planting and watering of previous contacts? The Wisconsin campaign, which consisted of cam- paign groups going to Oshkosh and Racine, was spon- sored by the Oakhaven Church of Christ in Oshkosh. The campaigners worked on the University of Wiscon- sin campus, conducted morning Bible studies and had a reunion for Landon Saunders, director of Heartbeat, an evangelistic radio program. In Racine, the church was in the "awareness stage," said Langford. The campaigners, led by Bart Castle, a senior oral communication major from Lubbock, helped the congregation by doing phone work and outreach on a university campus, he said. And the campaigners also knocked on doors, mass- mailed pamphlets and participated in a study group called, "Orientation to Missions Philosophy." Carl Cates, a senior public relations major from Odessa and leader of the 18-member group to Wood- bury, said their group's primary task was to distribute information concerning a one-day seminar to be led by Jim Woodruff, minister at the A8cM Church of Christ in College Station. But Cates said that by Monday night they had sur- faced more than enough contacts for the small con- gregation, and they had to slow down their door-to- door work.

Spring Break Campaigns uckley: a fradical' conservative Few people are so conservative political- ly that their ideas are considered radical. At times during his lecture in September at Hardin-Simmons University, William F. Buckley Jr. was one of those people. Buckley, syndicated columnist and host of the television show "Firing Line ,', of- fered a number of economic, social and political proposals that he admitted might seem radical. While he spoke of the ggformidable ex- citement" of President Reagan's ad- ministration, Buckley admitted to ap- prehensions about the presidentis tax package. Although for the most part Reagan's cuts have been considered the most conservative budgetary action taken in years, Buckley said, "I donit think it goes far enough. The reduction will not ex- ceed inflation." Buckley pointed to former President Jimmy Carterls economic renewal plan as one of the clearest examples of Man age of ongoing irresponsible rhetoric, especially in the field of economics." In such well-intentioned acts as pouring millions of dollars in loans into the Chrysler Corporation to rescue it from bankruptcy, Buckley said the government was merely paying workers to continue manufacturing unwanted automobiles. Even worse than the failures of politi- cians, Buckley said, is their unwillingness to admit that economic failure has to be tolerated and even anticipated. "Government is organically unsuited to effect economic progressf' he said. Buckley suggested that the risk of the free enterprise system is much healthier than government intervention. One of Buckley's statements was that Americans should enjoy and count their blessings more. He said it was a unique and t'dazzling" thing that everyone in HSU,s Behren's Auditorium was there because he chose to be, not because he was forced to attend. This would not be the case in most of the world, he said, but in America "little freedoms are taken for granted." Disaster can come to America, he said, through a "failure to invigorate our attach- ment to freedomf' - Doug Mendenhall 60 William Buckley 16 .. ff' A WW W M' ation debates nuclear issue hat would happen to Abilene if Dyess Air Force Base were bombed in a nuclear war? Robert Williams, assistant professor of government, painted a chilling answer to the question for 70 students, faculty and community members who attended a seminar during Ground Zero Week, April 18-25. Williams, who organized the seminar, described the probable scenario of a one megaton nuclear bomb explosion at Dyess, which the government has iden- tified as a likely target in a nuclear war. The assistant professor said the bomb, would cause at least 10,000 deaths im- mediately. Fire storms, contaminated food and water, disease epidemics and severe emotional trauma would follow the initial blast, he said. "The survivors of a nuclear warf' he concluded, "would very likely en- vy the dead." Williams' predictions closely matched those made by members of the Physicians for Social Responsibility at their fall 1980 convention. Video-taped excerpts of that conference, titled "The Last Epidemic: The Medical Consequences of Nuclear War," were shown at the ACU seminar, April 22, and at noon the following day. The seminar, conducted by Williams and Paul Morris, associate professor of physics, was designed "to get you thinking about things you haven't thought about before," Williams told the audience. Q 59' Besides the consequences of a nuclear attack, Williams and Morris discussed the history of the U.S.-U.S.S.R. nuclear arms race, and Morris compared nuclear weapons totals. He also presented alter- natives for the two countries, which were in what Williams termed "a mutual hostage situation." Morris said one nation could conquer the other, both nations could continue building nuclear weapons and trying to intimidate each other or they could communicate and develop a friendlier relationship. oth teachers attempted to present facts and ideas rather than urge a specific solution to the issue. However, Morris pointed out that of the options available, attempting to establish a rela- tionship with the Soviet Union would be the safest for mankind. Williams described faculty and ad- ministration reaction to the seminar as in- different, but he said student response was "limited but encouraging." He said students, reactions "ranged from 'good grief, what kind of radical thing is thisl' to genuine interest and concern." Before planning the Ground Zero Week activities Williams, who did his graduate work at Johns Hopkins School of Ad- vanced lnternational Studies in Washington, D.C., said he was concerned about the area's conservativism. "I was afraid people would immediately dismiss lllx wwf? -rat' .age- ' ..... . this as some kind of imported or alien philosophy or movement," he said. In- stead, he said, the thoughtful response from students encouraged him. tudents and others who attended ACU's Ground Zero Week sessions joined thousands of people in the nation- wide revival of concern about nuclear war and armament. Roser Molander, National Security Council staff member in the Nix- on, Ford and Carter administrations, created Ground Zero Week as an effort to educate Americans about the entire nuclear arms issue. Besides concentrating attention on nuclear war with Ground Zero Week, Williams said Molander published a book titled Nuclear War: What's in it for You. The assistant professor said Molander's organization attempted to present infor- mation and emphasize the dangers of nuclear war, but was not "pushing any solutions." Whether or not Ground Zero Week pro- duced any solutions, Williams thought the week was successful because it focused at- tention upon what he called nthe most im- portant conflict of our time."

Gray because the end of the semester loomed near enough to feel the weight of unfinished term papers, but not near enough to feel the relief of graduation. Gray, because the West Texas weather couldn't decide whether to be winter or summer. Gray . . . but not everywhere. On the well-worn intramural field at Hardin- Simmons University the afternoon was fluorescent orange, bright peacock blue and pastel yellow, green and pink. No, not a pop-art painting, but fluorescent orange insulated coveralls, a bright peacock blue sweatshirt and a pastel yellow, green and pink blanket wrapped around an-almost-blue-from-the-cold-coed. The coveralls, the sweatshirt and the blanket were gathered at HSU for Almost Anything Goes competi- tion, where the spirits of the students clad in bright colors contrasted with the dismal, end-of-semester blues as much as the colors contrasted with the gray sky. Almost Anything Goes placed Texans from the three local colleges against out-of-state students. About 200 students left studies behind to attend or participate in the competition. The afternoon's series of unusual athletic events in- cluded the inner tube roll, in which one person crawled inside four inner tubes and team members rolled him Opposite page: right - In the decorate-your-dean relay Liz Lane, junior radio-television major, pours milk on Norman Archibald, associate dean of stu- dents, top - Bart Castle, president of the Students' Association, and Andi Cannedy, junior public rela- tions major, huddle togetherg bottom - Clark Rid- dell, a sophomore public relations major from Redlands, Calif, competes in the banana peel race. down the field - or diagonally across the field and in- to a photographer. The mattress carry especially pleased the crowd of about 60. The event required male team members to race while carrying all female team members on a dangerously sagging mattress. Competition between Lone Star state residents and the "foreigners" was lighthearted, with cheers like g'Texans, Texans you're so bad, look at the scoreboard, oh, so sadf' The three schools also competed against each other in the cowchip and decorate-your-dean relays. However, the student government presidents and deans of the schools may have thought, with good cause, that the events were designed solely for their discomfort. ACU won the cowchip relay. Spectators were not sure whether the victory came because of Students' Association president Bart Castle's running expertise or his classmates' eagerness to stuff dried and not-so- dried cowchips into the baggy pair of pants he wore while running down the field and back. Bart and his McMurry and HSU counterparts end- ed up with smelly green legs. But after seeing the decorated deans, the presidents probably thought they were lucky. In a contest reminiscent of summer camp escapades, students transformed their deans into egg- and-butter-smeared, shaving-cream-topped, toilet- paper-wrapped mummies. Leaving the deans to unwrap and contemplate revenge, Texans and non-Texans regrouped for the tug of war, which spectators were invited to join. The non- Texan team won the event, so ACU's Texan coor- dinator, Jack Hodge, took his promised dive in the HSU pool. Just before Jack took his heroic plunge, the sun broke through the clouds and banished the gray. In the end the weather matched the spirit of Almost Anything Goes. v- Kelly Deatherage Almost Anything Goes 63 . l I l J iff f ill Q "X if li l fl Y A I ' 4 Somehow, the always-the-same Commencement ceremony sparkled with specialness . . maybe because it was mine t Commencement rehearsal May I, I in- troduced myself to the girl who would march ahead of me and the guy who would march behind me.

Sitton, the 1981 Lone Star Conference Coach of the Year, said this before the 'inal regular-season game against Howard Dayne University. The Wildcats tried to prove Sitton's tatement to the NCAA Division Il alayoff selection committee by destroying lPU 56-7. For the next 24 hours, all they could do was wait- and hope. The victory over HPU proved to be an :mpty win, however, as the Wildcats were eft out of the playoff picture.

But the taste became bit- tersweet in the second half of the game against Southwest Texas State. In fact, it became downright sour in the final 30 seconds. For the first 15 minutes the Wildcats played like a team possessed, striking for three quick touchdowns. Freshman quarterback Loyal Proffitt, who was named LSC Freshman of the Year and an all-conference player, fired scoring passes of 19 and 34 yards to Steve Parker on the Cats' first two possessions to give them a 14-0 lead just five minutes into the game. LSC coaches also named ACU junior center Grant Feasel, junior guard Scott McCall and senior tackle Kris Hansen to the all-conference team. The next time ACU had the ball Proffitt threw a 49-yard scoring pass to Quinton Smith, also named to the all-conference team. The Wildcats had a 21-0 lead with only 6:36 gone in the opening period. Smith made 10 other catches that night for 221 yards, breaking the school and LSC receiving records he set a week earlier against Sam Houston State. But watching Southwest Texas, which averaged 37.5 points per game, was like watching a ticking bomb. Everyone knew it would go off. The question was when. The Bobcats, trailing by three touchdowns, started their comeback with two minutes left in the first period. Before the second quarter was over, SWT had cut the deficit to four points, 28-24. The third quarter was a story of missed opportunities, costly mistakes and one bad break. After the Wildcats kicked off, Willie Osbon blasted the ball carrier at the ll and Archie Green recovered his fumble. But a quarterback sack and clipping penal- ty moved the ball back to the 31, and the Cats settled for a field goal by Martin Perry. Wildcat linebacker Mike Funderburg intercepted a tipped pass at the ACU 36. The Cats drove to the Bobcat 27, but came away empty when running back Anthony Thomas lost a fumble. Nine plays later, Funderburg, an all- conference honorable mention, came up with his second interception of the season, returning it to the Bobcat 33. Two plays later, facing the third-and-25, ' ACU's luck ran out. Proffitt dropped back and fired the ball to Smith, who made the catch at the 30. Football 69 Then, as four SWT defenders surrounded him, Smith pitched the ball back to runn- ing back Lembia Kinsler who streaked into the end zone. But a referee ruled that Smith had thrown an illegal forward lateral, and the touchdown was wiped out. Game films showed Smith pitching the ball from the 30 and Kinsler catching it just before crossing the 30-yard line. Perry's ensuing 51-yard field-goal at- tempt was wide, and the Wildcats never scored again. But the excitement was not over. Proffitt was intercepted in the end zone. Then, several plays later, with 9:30 left in the game, he fumbled a snap on ACU's next possession. But the Cats got the ball back the next play when safety Mark Wilson, an LSC honorable mention choice, intercepted his sixth pass of the season at the ACU 2. ACU punted four plays later, and the Bobcats took over at the ACU 37. lt took them only five plays to score. Mark Miller, the LSC Offensive Player of the Year, scored a touchdown, tying the game at 31-31 with three and one-half minutes remaining in the game. After un- successful drives, the game remained tied with 29 seconds left. The Wildcats had to fall on the ball for a tie. Had they known Texas ASLI would upset Southwest Texas the next week, that is probably what they would have done. Instead the Cats played for the win. But Proffittls pass was intercepted by Ken Cof- fey. Coffey weaved his way down the ACU sideline, picked up several key blocks, and went into the end zone for the winning score. Nearly every Wildcat on the field had a shot at tackling him. Most teams in the country would con- sider an 8-2 season very successful. ACU was no exception. They reversed their 1980 record and tied with A811 and Angelo State for second place in the LSC. But the disappointment came with los- ing to SWT and not making the playoffs. The Cats had a slow start in the season opener against the University of Northern Colorado, which led late in the third quarter, 14-0. Then Steve Parker took the kickoff and blew past the UNC coverage for an 84- yard touchdown return.

Sitton decided to go for the two-point con- version and sent the play in to Proffitt - an option pass. The freshman rolled to his right, saw an opening and cut upfield toward the goal line. He was hit at the 2 but kept his balance long enough to dive into the end zone for the game-winning conversion. ACU won its season opener 15-14. The Wildcats traveled to Alva, Okla., for the next game, and their offense demonstrated it would soon be an explosive force. The team racked up 409 yards total offense in an 18-3 win. The defense limited Northwest Oklahoma to 149 yards total offense.

After the NWO game, Sitton said he still was disappointed in the Wildcats' sparse use of their outside receivers. He did not complain again about use of the outside receivers because the Wildcat of- fense came alive the next week. The timing couldn't have been better. Northwestern State University of Loui- siana, an NCAA Division 1-AA indepen- dent, came to Abilene boasting one of the most potent offenses the Cats would face. It was the first real test of the season for the young Wildcats. They had a 41-38 win in a game that may have been the turning point of the season. After that game the Wildcats had a confidence that hadn't been apparent in a long time. With 2:14 left in the game, Nor- thwestern kicked a field goal to break a 35-35 tie. The Wildcats drove from their 20 to the NSU 12. A first-down penalty moved the ball back to the 17, and the drive seemed to stall when Proffitt threw three incompletions. The field goal team was sent out, but Football 71 ACU called time out with two seconds left. After the timeout, the offense, not the field goal unit, returned. They were going for the win, although a l7-yard chip shot by Perry would have tied the game. The Cats tried the play they ran the previous down. However, Northwestern was in a different defense, and Smith, the intended receiver was well covered. Proffitt, who received l0 seconds of pro- tection from his offensive line, scrambled around as the game clock expired. llc fired to tight end David Russell who was open in the end Zone. Russell squeezed it into his arms, and the celebration began. The Cats had an open date the next week before the conference opener against Texas A8Ll in Kingsville. The Javs, ranked in the top 10 since the season started, were fifth in the nation going into the game. The Wildcats. in the poll for the first time, were ranked sixth. ACU trailed l4-O after the Javs' sixth offensive play of the game. Both scores were set up by Wildcat turnovers, and ACU did not catch up, losing its first game This page: bottom lcjt - LSC' Freshman ofthe Year Loyal Projitt drops back to pass during a game against Angelo State Utiiversitr.

The ACU offense finally scored two minutes before halftime. Thomas, the big- gest surprise ofthe season, scored his first of three touchdowns. He entered the game when Henderson suffered a separated shoulder, and the freshman from Jasper gained 85 yards on I6 carries. The Cats prepared for Angelo State the next week. Because of his performance the week before, and Henderson's injury, the attention was focused on Thomas. The Wildcats built a 28-6 fourth- quarter lead against the Rams, but allowed ASU to cut the deficit to two points with a pair of fumbles and an interception. The defense held again, however, as safety Vin Smith deflected Ram quarterback Doug Kuhlmann's final two-point conversion pass for a 28-26 win. That wasn't thc only time the Wildcat defense saved the day, though, as it stop- ped the Rams twice at the ACU 5. Second-team, all-conference cornerback Mark Jackson blocked an ASU field-goal attempt, and the defense stopped Ram running back Jerry James on a fourth- down run late in the half. The Rams also had an extra-point kick blocked by Vince Ford, and twice they failed to score two- point conversions. The next week the Cats came back from a l4-3 halftime deficit for a l9-l4 win over East Texas in Commerce. The Lions recovered Thomas' opening series fumble at midfield and took a 7-I lead four plays later. On ACU's next driv the Cats had a first and goal at the 4, bu couldn't score on the fourth down. Thei next possession stalled at the Lion 25, bu Perry kicked a 42-yard field goal to cut th Lion lead to 7-3. ETSU came back however, and scored before halftime. Once again the defense kept tht Wildcats in the game. They were led bf second-team, all-conference end Jim Tut tle who intercepted a pass, recovered : fumble and was in on l0 tackles. The Cats returned to Abilene for the Homecoming game against a weal Stephen F. Austin team. i ACU scored the first two times it ham the ball and after four of its seven first-hal possessions. Meanwhile, the Wildcat defense, led bj all-conference nose guard Richard Flore and honorable mention tackle Dai Niederhofer, held the Jacks to a mere 12 yards total offense in the 31-0 game. The following week against San Houston State could have been called tht "Smith and Proffitt Show." Smith set tht LSC receiving record, accounting for al but 62 of the 282 yards Proffitt threw. The win left the Wildcats 4-l in LSC play heading into the next weeki: showdown with Southwest Texas. Disappointing? Well, maybe.

The ACU basketball squad that took the court after the Christmas holidays barely resembled the team that had it all together in December. Sometime during the holidays, five key players vanished from the Wildcat roster for academic reasons, disciplinary pro- blems or just plain dissatisfaction with school. The loss of two or three key players can wreck a team's season. But five? Head Coach Mike Martin recruited players from the student body just to have enough men for practice. Yet somehow Martin was able to gather what was left of his team and hammer it into respectability. The talent had been weakened and the once strong bench was gone, but the Wildcats survived. The season had started with much op- timism. It marked the return of ACU to NCAA competition in basketball. 74 Men's Basketball The team was returning with a great deal of talent from the year before in the form of senior guard Mike Cox and talented forwards Craig Williams and Mike Davis. Also returning after a year's absence was Jeff Johnson, a big plus under the boards. And after sitting out the first semester, Brad Kerley was to bring his fine shooting back to the court. The team had an abundance of bench strength. All looked good. A 71-59 overtime win against Mary Hardin-Baylor started the season for the Cats as Williams poured in 26 points. However, defects in the Cats' attack showed up during a trip to Wichita State as the fourth-ranked Shockers pounded them 93-55. Williams again took the lead with 22 points. Williams' dominance was very clear in the ACU attack early in the season. This was borne out in the Sunshine Tournament. Against Colorado School of Mines Williams played a key role. However, hc injured a knee during the contest and hac to miss the final game against Easterr New Mexico. The Cats lost. Coach Martin must have been concern ed as he took the team to Belton for z rematch with Mary Hardin-Baylor Williams was the only player who was tru- ly producing, and because of the injury i' was possible he wouldn't be able to play.

Q Z Bgkssy X R E 'Ei Men regroup after Chri tma The team seemed to be lacking a con- nection, waiting for the pieces to come together. Williams played against MH-B, but he wasn't the key. Everybody played a part. The pieces began to fall together, and the Cats trounced the Crusaders 86-48. The Cats continued to improve slowly, splitting a pair of games with Eastern New Mexico and falling short to a powerful University of Texas at El Paso team. They made mistakes, but the young players were starting to play as a team. But before the pieces could all be put together, the losses began. The tragedy began to take shape before the Cats were to play Sul Ross for their last game before taking a two-week Christmas break. Starting forward Jeff Johnson, who was becoming a powerful force in the ACU lineup, was informed before the trip that he would be academically ineligible for the remainder of the season. The Cats lost 87-83 to a mediocre Sul Ross team, but the loss of Johnson was on- ly the beginning. Freshmen Creon Dorsey, a part-time starter, and Alan Chambers, a solid forward off the bench, were notified that they too were academically ineligible for the remainder of the season. Then, to compound the loss, promising freshman guard Charles Butler didn't return to school after the Christmas holidays. The problems still were not over. Before school resumed for the spring semester, sharpshooter Kerley was dismissed from the team permanently for disciplinary reasons. He had been with the team for on- ly four games. What was left of the Wildcat basketball team was shocked. "From a physical standpoint it hurt us and from a mental standpoint it hurt us," Martin said. "We just lost a lot of guysfl Faced with a shortened roster, Martin tried moving his players around in search of a system that would work. Students were brought in to give the Cats enough bodies to have a practice. Former bench- warmers became starters. And the conference race began. After splitting a pair of games at the Emporia Jaycee Classic, the Cats opened conference play at home against nationally 76 Men's Basketball ranked Stephen F. Austin. The gaps in the lineup still showed as SFA shut down the Cat offense on the way to a 44-33 win. The next game, however, showed that the Cats still had heart. Despite being out- manned by Sam Houston and down in the second half by as much as 17 points, they fought back to within one. But Cox's last- ! ' I second desperation shot was just too little, too late. Yet despite the heartbreaking loss to SFA, the Cats traveled to Kingsville to play a much larger Texas A8LI team and won 52-48 in overtime. That game marked the emergence of Travis Clardy, a former second-stringer who had moved into a starting spot during the Christmas exodus. The game also proved the talent of Williams, who had 13 rebounds and, like Clardy, 16 points. But for the next five games, the Cats couldn't buy a win. Against Southwest Texas they were beaten by the Bobcats' 19 of 22 free throws. They also couldn't break an Angelo State full court press, which forced numerous turnovers. By now, Martin had juggled his lineup until it was much different from what he began the season with. Cox was still a guard and Davis was still a forward, but Williams was now a guard, Clardy was the center and freshman lan Hyslop had mov ed in as a forward. Ree Smith, a parttimt starter, provided depth under the boards and Scott Gaiser backed up the near-lam. Cox, With these seven, ACU's plaj improved. The Cats hosted rival Howard Paynt and lost yet another close one, largelj because of a smothering full-court press Near the end of the season it wai discovered that Howard Payne had uses an ineligible player in some of their games including the ACU game. The Yellov Jackets were forced to forfeit thosi matches. ACU reached rock bottom in a pair o back-to-back games against East Texa State. ETSU's Ollie Hoops scored 28 ant 23 points against the Cats as ACU stum bled into the cellar of the conference race. The Cats finally broke their losing way in Brownwood against Howard Payne. Thr notorious HPU fans were at their worst but Davis didn't seem to care as he led tht ACU attack with 19 points. However, two more games on the roam didn't give the Cats much to cheer abouti They played well until the last 10 minute against Sam Houston, then scored onlj four more points. Against Stephen F. Austin, William poured in 29 points, but it wasn't nearlj enough as the Cats fell 80-62. The team returned to Abilene to finisl up the regular season and once again hai trouble with Angelo State. Then came yet another heartbreaking, loss of 47-46 to Southwest Texas. Hyslop' desperation shot after stealing an inbound pass fell just short as time ran out.

But as luck would have it, Hyslop reinjured an ankle and was forced to miss the Lone Star Conference Tournament. The season finally ended for ACU in the first round of the tournament against Sam Houston. The Cats got behind 15-1, fought back to tie at 21-21, but fell into another hole in the second half and could not climb out. Sam Houston won 57-44 and even- tually took the tournament title. It had been a very tough season. Rarely does a team lose five key players, but even less often is a team able to rebound from such a large loss and face the trouble. "It really helped four or five of the kids - helped them to face adversity," said Martin after the season ended in late February. "It helped us to grow stronger and in that way it helped us for next year." Even if it was a tough season for the team, they still performed. Clardy and Hyslop had started the year on the bench but ended as the most improved players on the team. Williams was named to the All-LSC second team after the season was over. His 14.7 points per game and 7.7 rebounds per game do not tell enough about a man who had to be shuffled to every position on the court. Cox played his final year at ACU, and Gaiser filled in for the often-injured guard. Smith ended up starting half the season. Davis was always the consistent scorer. "We put them in a difficult role and they produced in adversity," said Coach Martin. "They stayed when it was bad. They were truly winners." - Clint Milner This page: above left - Craig Williams twists his way to the basket against Angelo Staley above right - Jeff Johnson lays in an easy basket against Mary Hardin-Baylor: right - Mike Cox guards a Mary Hardin-Baylor player closely in the Cats opening game.

Earlier in the year, nine of the women in that graduating class, one a 6-foot-5 center and the other an All-American forward, had helped provide his Lady Wildcats with a 31-7 season record and a state championship. At the start of the season only three players returned, and the other team members were freshman ballplayers from high school teams. The only option for the Wildcats was to rebuild. It usually isn't an easy process, and for the ACU women's team, it was a season of sometimes painful reconstruction. The Cats endured an eight-game losing streak, six losses by five points or less, and the loss of two key players. As Coach Mc- Coy put it, "It was a growing season." At the beginning of the season McCoy was a bit uncertain about what kind of team he would have. Senior guards Michelle Cooper and Robbie Freeman, and junior guard Debbie Woodruff returned from the previous year. A pair of transfers, center Camilla Scott and forward Callie Barkley added strength to the team, along with Jana Nash, a junior forward who had not played the previous season. The season began with a bang for the Lady Cats as they defeated Texas Chris- tian University 89-59. Both teams shot well, but the difference came in rebounds as ACU dominated the boards. Scott led the scoring with 23 points, and Coach Mc- Coy emptied the bench after the Cats built a 38-point lead. 80 Women's Basketball After a solid 63-57 win over Angelo State University, the Cats launched into a three-game spin against junior college teams. The games against junior colleges didn't count on the season record. After a narrow 62-59 win over Temple Junior College, the Cats lost to Howard Junior College 67-59 and to McLennan Junior College in the Howard Invitational Tournament. The games against the junior college teams must have been an omen because it was quite a while before the Cats won another game. Officially it was called an eight-game losing streak, but that did not include the three losses to junior college teams. More trouble was ahead at Sam Houston State University, where the Bearkats defeated the Cats 63-51. The trouble continued at the Texas Christian University tournament where questionable officiating ruined the team's chances in a loss to Texas Wesleyan Col- lege. Poor shooting didn't help the Cats' cause in a close 58-54 loss to TCU, and the losing streak was far from finished. Their confidence weakened, the Lady Cats lost 59-56 to Howard Payne Universi- ty, as 28 turnovers proved to be the downfall. After another loss to Howard Junior College 65-50, the Wildcats traveled to West Texas State University where they lost a heartbreaker in the last 22 seconds, 74-73. The Christmas holidays brought no glad tidings for the Cats. The team went from bad to worse. The bad news was two more losses: a 73-54 foul-away loss to Midwestern State University and an 83-53 drumming by Southern Methodist Univer- sity. But the worst news was the loss of tp key players. i Scott, the team's leading scorer, v dropped from the squad because disagreements with McCoy, and Ja Nash, the team's leading rebounder, q the team in support of Scott. "They weren't happy with us, and weren't happy with them," said MCC Nash and Scott said they quit the te: because of favoritism on the part McCoy.

'Q Cat advance to quarterfinal Following the pair of wins came another close loss, once again to West Texas State. This time the Lady Buffs squeaked past ACU with just four seconds left in the game. The team traveled to the Angelo State Tournament where it met with success. The Cats opened with a 80-70 win over Southwestern University. Throughout the game, the Wildcats kept their lead. Then came a disappointing loss in the second round to West Texas State. However, the Cats came back the next night to defeat Southwest Texas for third place in the tournament with a 19-point game by Caroline Peterson. Freeman was the leading Cat in the 82 Women's Basketball three-game tournament as she scored 42 points and pulled down 22 rebounds. After the tournament, the Cats had trouble in their next two games. In a loss to Angelo State ACU outscored the Lady Rams from the field, but lost at the freethrow line. Later, top-ranked Rice came to Abilene and fought off a determined ACU team on their way to a 67-56 win. Then came one of those nights when nothing goes wrong. The Howard Payne women showed up two hours late for the game, and they shouldn't have bothered to come as the Cats mauled them 85-43. All the Wildcats played as ACU dominated the scoreboards. After a disappointing season-ending los to TCU, the Cats advanced to the stat tournament against East Texas State ACU, seeded seventh in the tourney, user a full court press to its fullest potentiaf The Cats caused 40 turnovers en route to . 65-58 victory and a trip to Fort Worth an- the state quarterfinals.

McCoy said he had somewhat mixed elings about the season. Much of his ustration stemmed from the Cats coming close in so many games and falling just ort of winning, he said. "We potentially could have won every tllgamef' said McCoy. "If we could have st shot the ball more consistently. We ored 65 points per game and our op- inents scored 65.8 points per game. We st couldn't win the close ones." McCoy also spoke with a great deal of itimism about what had been ac- implished during the season. "We laid the groundwork for next :ar," said McCoy. "The kids were new, a t of them just out of high school, and ey got a lot of experience this year." "Basketball is a game in which you need play together, and now we have that ex- :rience again," he said. - Clint Milner tis page: left - Team pictureg right - iurie Welch drives toward the basket 'ainst Rice.

State. Weak defensive play characterized the Cats' three wins and two losses in the San Angelo tournament Oct. 2 and 3. The team followed the tournament with a loss to Texas Tech. But the Wildcats won their home tourney Oct. 10-ll with wins in matches against Howard Payne University, Mary Hardin-Baylor, Lubbock Christian, Tarleton State and West Texas State. The tournament was the first ACU has sponsored. Two more wins Oct. 13 brought the Cats' consecutive wins to seven, but a disappointing loss to Angelo State Univer- sity Oct. 19 ended the team's longest winn- ing streak. The team won three and lost two in Texas Wesleyan's tournament in Fort Worth in late October. In their last home game the Wildcats beat Texas Wesleyan but lost to Texas Tech. The team closed out the season a week before the Nov. 5-7 state tournament with a loss to Angelo State in San Angelo. The first night of the ll-team state tour- nament in Huntsville the Wildcats lost to Rice and Angelo State. In the next day's play the team lost to Sam Houston State but defeated Hardin- Simmons University. The Wildcats' outstanding player in the tournament was Doris Leverett, a transfer from HSU. Team captains for the year were seniors Pennie Dacus, Susan Scott and Jan Johnson. As the season began Moore said she expected them to be the team's nucleus. They fulfilled those expectations. Although the seniors were strong, the Wildcats' talent was well-distributed among all 14 team members, and Moore said she expects all but the seniors to return. At the season's end Moore also said she was pleased that team members who did not get to play much stayed with the team. Dacus emerged as the individual leader and won the Most Valuable Player title with a record of setting with 98 percent ac- curacy. She also missed only four out of 627 serves for the year and set records in every area but blocking. Also strong were sophomore Karen DeArmond, who set with 96 percent ac- curacy, and Abilene High graduate Susan Ogle, a strong spiker. Not only were team statistic totals more than in past years, Moore said, but percen- tages also were higher. The increase in percentages was significant because the team played twice as many games as it did in 1980. Moore added a new offense, the shoot- set, which uses a well-timed low set that looks as if it will go out of bounds, but is spiked just before it does. The play was ef- fective because of its quickness and power. Co-captain Scott said the only teams they played who knew a defense for the play were Texas Tech and Angelo State. Moore, in her second year of coaching the team, said the season had convinced her not to schedule as many games, especially road games, in coming seasons. "The traveling took its toll on us. We played much tougher teams and were out of town too much. Not only were we out of town more, but we took very long trips at the same time," she said. Volleyball 85 Most schools the team played had limited travel budgets, so to play some teams twice the Wildcats had to travel for both games. More games with Hardin-Simmons and McMurry College would have prevented some travel and allowed hometown crowds to see more of the Cats. But Moore did not schedule with the local schools at the re- quest of administrators. She said they believed the schools' academic cooperation would be better without athletic competition. Because team members had to play in one-third of the season's 52 matches, not every team member received a letter. "lt doesn't mean that much if everyone let- ters," Moore said. She also said she especially was pleased with the team's ability to bounce back alter losses. "They would take a tough loss and learn from their mistakes. They never fell into slumps," she said. "They showed a lot of class." She attributed much of the team's resilience to the three seniors. To develop this year's Freshmen and sophomores, who will be the key to the team's future strength, Moore relied more on spring training. "This serves as fine tun- ing forthe players," she explained. Moore said she will miss the three seniors, Johnson, Scott and Dacus. She not only coached them for two years but was their teammate in 1978. "lt is a unique situation to coach the same people you played with," she said.

The Wildcats had a l5-7 record in the spring and were 4-2 in the conference, with the only losses coming at the hands of LSC champion Southwest Texas State, and runner-up Stephen F. Austin. SWTSU went to on to win the NAIA national title. Senior Ron Elston, who lost in the singles finals of the conference tournament last year, was defeated in the semifinals by Bill Jenkins of SWTSU, 6-l, 6-4. Mark Dotson and Larry Fatheree made it to the quarterfinals of the singles tourna- ment. But Dotson was defeated by Chris Mosso of Angelo State, 7-5, 7-6, in two very tough matches. Fatheree was beaten by Jenkins of SWTSU, 6-0, 6-l. Elston and doubles partner Sam Moore made it to the semifinals, but were defeated by Jack Sheehy and Steve Riza of SFA. ln the quarterfinals Elston-Moore defeated Hostic-Baker of ASU, 6-3, 6-7, 7-5. Fatheree-Dotson were defeated in the quarterfinals by Angell-Bramlett of SWTSU. Coach Cecil Eager said he was pleased with his team's performance. "Almost all of them won at least one match,', said Eager, "and we got three of them in the quarterfinals. I think we did very well." Eager lost Elston, Fatheree and Dotson to graduation, but he had a number of players returning which left him with a strong foundation.

The Wildcats also were TAIAW state champions and regional champions. They won both of these titles at the tournament at ACU April 23-24. Only one tournament was played for both titles because of the few women's tennis teams located throughout the region. The teams the Cats defeated to reach the nationals were Texas Woman's University, Texas Lutheran College and Austin College. ACU won all 18 matches it played in the state tournament. ACU's best finish in Madison came in flight three doubles as Toni Fatheree and Janie Webb teamed up to beat Paula Retka and Sherry Jones of the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, 6-1, 6-l, for a third-place finish. Coach Cecil Eager was optimistic about his team's chances at the tournament, and after it was over he was just as optimistic. "I didn't see anybody out there we couldn't have played with," he said. "I think we made a real good showing." The other doubles matches netted the Cats two fifth-place finishes. In flight one, Angie Shoemaker and Lisa Cross beat Beth Larson and Alice Jang of Pacific Lutheran, 6-4, 6-4. In flight two, Ande Hunt and Alice Vickers defeated Betty Foster and Jane Schueler of Depauw, 6-l, 6-l. ACU came away with two fifth-place finishes and one sixth-place finish in singles action.

SWTSU came from behind to beat Stephen F. Austin, and last year's con- ference champs, Sam Houston State, fin- ished third. Senior Courtney Connell had a chance to be the conference medalist, but the final round was his downfall. "I didn't play real well on the final day," said Connell. "I should have done better for the whole tournament." Connell did have better luck the next weekend as he was one of two area golfers to qualify for the Texas State Amateur GolfTournament. "We started out behind this season because of the bad weather," said Har- rison. "But we had a pretty good year." Also playing on this year's team were senior Dale Moody, juniors John Wilson and John Sconiers, and freshmen Jon Der- rick, Eddie Holt and Lewis Wilks. ACU took the first city triangular meet, beating Hardin-Simmons and McMurry by l5 and 16 strokes, respectively. The Cats also played in the ACU Invitational, the 25th Abilene Intercollegiate and the Angelo State Invitational. The win at San Angelo was the Wildcats' first on the Rams' home course.

"We generally have as good of a team as anyone we play, in- cluding the big NCAA schools. Even when we don't have all our players on the road, we still manage to be in the thick of the game.', The 1981-82 Wildcat Soccer Club end- ed its second intercollegiate season with a 5-5-1 record, said Chowning. The club won its home opener against West Texas State University, an NCAA Division I opponent, 4-0. The Wildcats were in command from the beginning and got their first goal when Paul Verstegen, a transfer from Stephen F. Austin, scored a penalty kick. Chowning, a junior from Dallas, scored with four minutes left in the first quarter to give ACU a 2-0 lead. Bill Abel and Tim Ingram scored the Wildcats' two other goals. In a battle against Angelo State Univer- sity the Wildcats lost 3-1 to their Ram op- ponents, Chowning said. Chowning said the team played a defen- sive battle in the absence of four starters who couldn't make the trip. Two weeks later ACU battled the ASU Rams to a 2-2 tie on the ACU intramural field. Chowning said, "The Rams blew us off the field when they beat us there. They kept the ball in our end of the field almost the whole game. This game was different." The Cats went ahead 1-0 when Ingram scored in the first half. ASU evened up the score, and at halftime the score remained tied, 1-1. Freshman Dru Mitchell scored the Wildcats' other goal with 10 minutes re- maining in the game.

The team Lrnered high points during the track ason to win seven of 11 meets where iints were kept. Their low points came in oss country where the lowest score wins a eet. In the fall cross country season the Lady ats won the state and regional titles and iished seventh in the nation. In the 'ring track season the Wildcats placed cond behind Rice University in the state eet. but scored only nine points at the itional meet. The cross country team went into the ll season as defending state champions, his page: Maria Espinoza followed by eary teammate Denise Smith, leads com- 'tition in a distance race. Opposite page: ea Huddleston practices handing ojf the :ton to Tina Lopez. and Coach Burl McCoy talked confidently about his team's chances. "I don't see how anyone in the state can beat us if we're running just half as good as we can,', he said early in the season. "In fact, I don't think there are many in the state that can beat us even in Division I." The strength of the team was evident from the first week. ACU ran in a dual meet with Angelo State and the Wildcats came away with a perfect score, winning 15-42. Laurie Taylor led the Wildcat sweep of the first five places as she won in 18:51. Taylor was followed by teammates Cheryl Vinsant, Karin Lambden, Maria Espinoza and Tina Lopez. McCoy summed it up well. f'It,s hard to get beat when you have a perfect scoref' he said. "You don't see too many of those." But the team repeated the perfect per- formance two weekends later in San Angelo at the ASU cross country meet. McCoy got a chance to see how his team would do against the Division I schools the next weekend at the Arlington Invita- tional. And the Wildcats didn't disappoint him, placing second to the University of Texas and beating Texas A8LM, Houston, North Texas State and Northeast Louisiana. "Our kids performed very well," said McCoy. "This virtually put us second in the state. It really tickled us because we were the only Division II school there. When you beat the Aggies and Houston, you feel like you've done something." ACU was near perfect when the team traveled to Lubbock to run with Texas Tech and ASU. This time the Wildcats scored 16 points. At the UT Invitational in Georgetown, Texas slipped by ACU in the last 400 yards to win the relay race, in which each team member ran a different distance and then handed a baton to the next runner. The Wildcats led for most of the race and gave Taylor a good lead, but she had Women's Track 97 5 2 Q This page: top - Distance runner Denise Smith, center, works to overtake an Angelo State University runner,' bottom - Teammates Lisa Gardner and Pam Keese lead a Texas Ad! competitor.

' g McCoy had hoped for another perfect score at the TAIAW Division II meet, but the Cats missed by two points as they scored 17. In the regional meet the Wildcats again missed a perfect score, scoring 19 points. The win in the regional meet advanced the team of Taylor, Lambden, Vinsant, Espinoza, Lopez and Denise Smith to the national meet in Pocatello, Idaho. At the national meet the University 'of Utah won the title in the snowy weather. The weather and the higher-than-4,000- foot altitude contributed to the Cats' seventh-place finish and hindered other southern schools, McCoy said. Taylor, in 14th place, was the first ACU finisher. Lambden was 22nd, Lopez was 44th, Smith was 49th, Espinoza was 82nd, and Vinsant was 85th. McCoy wasn't having a very good year with the women's basketball team, so he was very glad to have the track season coming up. He must have known his team's poten- tial because the first indoor meet was l almost as successful as the first cross coun- try meet of the year. At the West Texas State Indoor Track Meet the Lady'Cats took first place in 13 of 14 events to easily outdistance second place Texas Tech, 180-126. The only event the Cats didn't win was the shot put - and they didn't enter anyone in that event. "You don't ever expect something like this to happen," McCoy said "especially in the first meet of the year. You always hope for a performance like that, but it usually doesn't come." The Cats had double wins from freshman Teresa Parker in the long jump and the 60-yard dash, freshman Melodee Byrd in the 60-yard high hurdles and high jump, and Lambden in the one- and two- mile runs. Taylor won the 880-yard dash, Lopez won the 1,000-yard rung Glyna Beaty won the 300-yard dash, and Brenda Evans won the 440-yard dash. The Wildcats also won the 880-yard, one- and two-mile relays. After the indoor meet McCoy said that nobody would be able to touch the Wildcats from the half mile on up. As the season progressed that prediction held true in almost every meet. ...,...,.,. . , The team's next competition came in Austin at a meet with some Division I schools, and the team appeared to be run- ning just as well as it had in the first indoor meet. No point totals were kept at the meet, but ACU runners turned in some im- pressive times for the first outdoor meet of the year. Taylor missed setting a school record in the 1,500-meters by two seconds as she won in 4:33. With only 200 yards left in the race she was 20 yards behind, but was able to just nip the other runners. McCoy thought the best race for the Wildcats came in the half mile. "We entered four girls CTaylor, Lopez, Huddleston and Lisa Garnerj in the race to see what their time would be for the two-mile relay," McCoy said. "All of them finished in under 2:14. If we put all the times together it comes out to an 8:53. We ran a 9:08 in the national last year, and the winning time was 8:56." The team started a winning streak at the Rambelle Relays that continued for most of the Wildcats outdoor season. McCoy had not planned on winning the meet - and was only trying to get his team ready Women's Track 99 Cats Znd in tate for the Texas Relays e but near the end when the Wildcats still were close the women ran harder and were able to beat their hosts, 132-l24. The following weekend McCoy hoped to hold a meet in conjunction with the men's competition in the Angelo State University Relays. But after the Lady Cats beat ASU, the Rambelles pulled out of the meet McCoy had hoped for. So the team had to settle for a meet at East Texas Stare f and the Cats made it So the team had to settle for a meet at East Texas State - and the Cats made it two in a row with a win over Ranger Junior College and East Texas State. They con- tinued their winning ways the next two weekends as they won a meet at Baylor and the ACU Invitational. But like all other good things, the Cats' winning streak had to come to an end. McCoy took four members of his team to the Texas Relays, and Coach Kathy Moore took the rest of the team to the Stephen F. Austin Invitational. The two-mile relay team took third place at the Texas Relays, but the rest ofthe team was defeated by the host team, 129-122. "I was hoping we could win the meet even though we were divid- ed," McCoy said. "But with the four in Austin and some others sick, we just didn't have the depth." The Cats got back on the winning track the next weekend at the Texas Tech Invita- tional, defeating Texas Tech and ASU. Their win in that meet came despite incor- rect scheduling and improperly marked race distances. After the meet, McCoy said, "I was upset about the way they ran the meet, but there is nothing you can do about it but not come back next year." All season long McCoy had said the state meet would be between ACU and ASU, but as the season progressed Rice moved in- to the picture as the Cats' biggest threat to This page: Coach Burl McCoy steadies a happily victorious Karin Lambden.

Near the end of the season McCoy added up the points that the top teams predictably would win in the state meet, and Rice came up the winner followed by ACU and ASU. The final point totals were different from McCoy's predictions, but the order was correct as Rice kept ACU from making it two state titles in a row. The women didn't have the same luck the men's team did at national meets, but they did make a good showing in the two-mile irelay where the team finished second for eight points. V Rea Huddleston got the Cats' other point with a sixth-place finish in the 800- imeter run. Coach Burl McCoy had hoped for a na- tional championship in the relay, but the women just missed it.

But instead the season amounted to "a huge disappointment indoorsw Hood said. The team had instance upon instance of bad luck at the February NAIA indoor meet and missed that title by four points. Then in April the men failed to capture the Lone Star Conference title. The loss was a break in four straight titles. However, Hood still was able to call the outdoor season Ha huge thrill" because the Wildcats went on to win two national championships - the NAIA and the NCAA Division II. After winning the NAIA outdoor meet, Hood said, "I've reached one of my life goalsfl The Wildcats hadn't won any na- tional titles since the 1950s when Olympic gold medalist Bobby Morrow was a Wildcat. This year, instead of. Bobby Mor- row, the talk was about Wildcat Billy Olson, a senior from Abilene. Olson, a world-class pole vaulter, set an American indoor record in September with a vault of I8-6Vz at the Olympic Invita- tional meet in East Rutherford, N.J. Olson broke Philadelphia and Kansas'City meet records in January when he vaulted I8-0 in Philadelphia and I8-l in Kansas City. Then, in late January at the Toronto Star Maple Leaf Indoor Games, Olson set an indoor world record with a vault of 18-8M. With his sights set on cracking the 19- foot barrier, Olson upped his world record in February to 18-9M: at the 22nd Portland Federal Mason-Dixon Games in Louisville, Ky. The senior then proceeded to break his record a second time a few weeks later at the Jack-in-th'e-Box Indoor Games in San Diego with a vault of I8-9Wl A few days later Olson soared over th: bar at 18-I0 at the NAIA Indoor Tracl and Field Championships in Kansas City to break the world record he set just day: before. In outdoor competition Olsonls opening vault of 18-3 set a Texas Relays meet ant Memorial Stadium record in early April By the season's end Billy hadn't reachec his goal of 19 feet. He did, however, take his fourth NAIA outdoor title to be the first person ever to win four NAIA indooi and four NAIA outdoor titles.

After vaulting all over Europe in the summer, senior Brad Pursley continually scored points for the Wildcats.

In the pole vault Pursley set an indoor personal record of 18-OW in January at the Times-Herald Invitational Track Meet in Dallas. His outdoor best was 17-9. In Toronto, Pursley cleared 18 feet by several inches to take second place, just behind Olson. "Brad made the best jump I've ever seen him make in his life," said Olson. Other ACU vaulters were sophomore Bobby Williams, freshman Dale Jenkins and junior Tim Bright. Jenkins has an im- pressive personal best of 18-OW which he set at a practice meet in Abilene. Wildcat pole vaulters scored 1-2-3-4 at the NAIA outdoor meet and 1-2-3 or first and second on numerous occasions, making the pole vault a tremendous strength for the Wildcats. "Strength" also was a very appropriate word when describing senior Steve Parker. Parker ran his first race of the year in Kansas City against some world-class competition to win the 60-meter hurdles and tie the meet record with a time of 7.22 seconds. Parker won the 60-meter hurdles again at the Albuquerque Jaycee Indoor Meet with a time of 7.22 seconds, although he had set a personal record of 7.10 earlier in Dallas, the second best collegiate time in 1982. Although his team finished third in the NAIA Indoor Track and Field Champion- ships in Kansas City, Parker won the 60- yard hurdles in a meet record time of 7.19 seconds to capture his fourth NAIA in- dividual title. At the 55th annual Texas Relays, Parker exploded out of the blocks in first place and led the competition all the way through the tape in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.85. At Eastern New Mexico University, Parker set a school record in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 13.6. Actually, he did it twice W once in the preliminaries and again in the finals, running into a slight breeze. The powerful relay teams were a great asset to the menls track team, and senior Kriss Brooks was a great asset to the relay teams. Brooks was without injury for the first time since his freshman year. sl 'Mi Men's Track X. MW, K . ..,,...-anti' ""' is tt 1 ---- -- . t . . .sa .

Brooks decided to skip his senior year of football and to concentrate on track. In the fall he was able to rehabilitate his hamstring and build his endurance. Besides leading and anchoring for relays, Brooks also took several firsts in the 400-meter dash. His victory at the San Angelo State Relays established a meet record of 46.76. At the Texas Relays in Austin the 1,600-meter relay team of Kelly Smith, Tommy Thompson, Arthur Williams and Brooks set a school record with a time of 3109.7 but failed to qualify for the finals. 106 Men's Track The spring medley relay team of Williams, Thompson, Brooks and Rick Kittley qualified for the finals in a school-record time of 302205, but didn't place in the finals because Kittley failed to finish the race. He had been recovering from a low white blood cell count that had cost him several other races. Sprint relay men Greg Johnson, Thomp- son, Williams and anchorman Albert Lawrence set a school record of 40.3 at the ACU Invitational Track Meet. That record was broken at the Texas Relays when Parker, Roscoe Mason, Williams and Lawrence finished with a time of 40.0 f even so, they came in eighth place because of some bad exchanges of tl baton. The 800-meter team of Parker, Thom son, Williams and Lawrence came in wif a time of 1:23.17 at the California Relay the third fastest time in ACU history.

"But shortened up their handoffs so the wouldn't drop the baton."

High jumper Rick Watkins sailed over :he bar at 7 feet at the ACU invitational to set a school record and win the event. Watkins competed outside the United States for the first time in the summer when he traveled to Europe for a five-week stay. He competed in nine meets, winning Your of them. ACU also had some high-quality men in ghe long jump and triple jump. Peter Green, a sophomore from Jamaica, often alaced high in the triple jump until he quit :ompeting because of an injury. Freshman Greg Johnson excelled in the ong jump. Johnson became a national long ump champion at the NAIA outdoor meet when he took the event with his first jump.

"Setting the world record is just an indescribable feeling. I canit even begin to put it into words, but it's the total feeling." Olson, a senior public relations major from Abilene, had an indoor season that took him from one coast to the other. He set and reset the world indoor record four times during the winter season, and in do- ing so he raised the height from an American record of 18-65 to the current world record of 18-10. Olson, who received both local and na- tional coverage for his vaults, set the record in the National Association of In- tercollegiate Athletes indoor champion- ships as he vaulted for ACU for the first time since an accident in September of 1980. While working out in the gymnastics room doing an exercise called "rope vaultingf, Olson vaulted out of the pit and landed on the gym floor. He suffered severe wrist and elbow injuries. The wrist was still broken during the 1982 season, and it changed his style, but it wonit be fixed unless absolutely necessary, he said. A doctor told Olson that he might never vault again, but it wasn't the first time he had been told that by a doctor. While in high school a doctor told him he shouldn't vault again after a serious groin injury. Olson changed doctors, began vaulting again, and before the season was over he had set the state high school record. when people keep asking me about the injury,'l he said. "They keep trying to make a big deal about it. Coach Hood told me this could be a blessing in disguise, and told me not to get discouragedf' Olson continued, "It was tough not to get discouraged, and it was hard to see it as a blessing in disguise. But looking back at it now, it was a blessing. I had to work harder after, and that has helped me a lotfl But the fact that he was able to compete again for the Wildcats could have been a miracle in itself. If ACU had remained an NAIA school, Olson would have been able to compete. But the National Collegiate Athletic Association gives an athlete five 108 Billy oison by J. Scott Russell years to complete school, and since Olson attended Baylor before coming to ACU, he had completed five years of competition. So Olson started the school year as a graduate assistant coach. At the NCAA convention division II, ACU,s division, and division III adopted the rule that athletes could compete for a maximum of 10 semesters. And Olson was once again a competing Wildcat. This winter, the casual observer might have said Olson was a very lucky person to be able to travel to so many different places. But Olson didn't consider himself lucky. "Traveling is the worst part of all of thisf' said Olson. "I'm a homebody, and I wish I could stay home. But the big meets don't come to you." But one of the good things that came from all the traveling he did is the people he came in contact with, he said. "People in some places 9 have always gone out of their way to be nicef, he said. "The people in New York and Canada have always been nice. But the thing that happened in San Angelo shows you what the people around here are likef' While competing in the Angelo State Relays, Olson realized he had left his special vaulting glasses, which help him see the bar, in Abilene. But through the help of some friends in San Angelo, a new pair of glasses were furnished, and Olson was able to compete and win the vault. "But the people I have met and have had the chance to associate with have been the most fun,', he said. "I've met some of the greatest athletes in the world, and some of the all-time greatest." f'I'd have to say the person I've been the most impressed with has been Bob Richards," Olson said. g'He won two Olympic gold medals, and has done just about everything. He's a fantastic man, and he loves people . . ." The pace he set for himself this winter was almost a world record in itself. Almost every weekend he had to vault in two dif- ferent citiesg sometimes the cities were in the same state, and sometimes they were in different countries. While it seemed that Olson set a record every week during the indoor season, the records didn't come quite as quickly in the outdoor season. "I'm getting tired of not setting the out door record or jumping 19 feet," he said "And now there is a lot of pressure on m to do it. In the past it helped to have th pressure on me, but maybe now it's makin, me try too hard." for himself. And a one would expect from someone who spen a great deal of his time in the air, his goal were always set higher. He used to havl car license plates that said 19 FEET, bil that was no longer his top goal. "I know I can jump over 19 feetf' h said. "I don't think I ever said I would g 20 feet, but somebody will. I just want t vault the highest I can, and I haven't don it yetf' "While the indoor record is a nice thin to have, itls really the outdoor record tha is the most important," Olson said. "Pec ple remember who the record holder is out doors. I'm a better outdoor vaulterf' Olson was already looking forward t next year, and the 1984 Olympics in Lo Angeles. "I won't be in school next year, and as result, I'll do betterf' he said. "But I'll sti be in Abilene. And I'll still be workin with the vaulters at ACU. Coach Hoo will be my coach as long as he'll have me.' 'LI think being here with some othe vaulters that are very good has helped a lot,'l Olson continued. "Brad Pursleynd Dale Jenkins always keep pushing me, an that makes me keep working at gettin better. I hope having me around ha helped them too." are definitely my go but they arenit my top priority. They a only a one-shot deal. I could go in as t best in the world, and have an off day an not win the gold medalf, he said. S'But would still be the best in the world. If yo put too much in it and had an off day, would just wreck you."

Z., The athletic talents of intramural par- ticipants varied along as wide a spectrum as the teams' names, which ranged from the solidly predictable Galaxy I to the highly imaginative Holy Rollerettes, a women's bowling team. Some participants saw intramural in- volvement as a way to keep study-sluggish blood flowing. They met, sometimes, for short practices at Will Hair park on a sun- ny Saturday. Other competitors faithfully kept to a demanding practice schedule out of a desire to win - or a desire to avoid the wrath of their social club pledge master. Some students played football alongside of their Sunday morning Bible class teacher. Other students fought for baskets against former ACU lettermen. But whatever a team's makeup or a par- ticipant's skills, P.E. Instructor Lynn Lut- f , ' 1 51 6 f 1 A. 110 Intramurals trell's intramural program had just the sport. Luttrell's figures indicated that students responded enthusiastically to the variety of events, with many more students participating in intramurals in the 1981 fall semester than the fall before. As in past years the major sports - football, volleyball, basketball and softball - attracted the most attention and the most participants. But the intramural pro- gram also encompassed less traditional sports such as badminton, racquetball, swimming and golf. And to the truly adventurous and pioneering the program offered waterball, rodeo, Frisbee and the three-legged race. The three-legged race, as well as the goat dressing contest and the egg toss, became part of the intramural program Oct. 13 in the Roast the Rams weekend activities. Students competed in th downhome events down on the ACU Alle Farm in a weekend of fun designed by th Students' Association to raise spirit for th Angelo State University football game. Two other additions to the intramura program, although not so colorful, als went into effect during the year. In th fall, football teams abided by a nO-C0ntaC rule added to limit injuries.

Q s ll kind of intramural port Luttrell also added a second basketball league to prevent gross mismatches in games. He created the recreation league to include students who were playing just for fun. Serious competitors and club teams playing for the school championship com- peted in a championship league. The intramural director, who was in his second year in the position, said the organizational change came "in an effort to make the competition better for all par- ticipants." He said that the reorganization l l 2 Intramurals allowed players to play on their own skill level. A similar arrangement existed in foot- ball, with competition divided into three divisions for men and two for women. In football 34 men's teams competed, up six from the year before, and 12 women's teams participated, three more than the last year. Just as the sports' levels of competition differed, the number of spectators at any given event also differed. A men's football championship game drew quite a crowd. but a first-round ping pong game attracted only the most loyal boyfriends. However, one intramural event was sc big that classes were dismissed for it. Well, maybe it didn't quite work that way, but one of the big spring events was the track meet that took place on All- School Day when classes did not meet ir the afternoon. Students gathered in Elmer Gray Stadium April 15 for a full-fledged track meet. WW F ' bw Fr s , ,' - 1q,: , V yll yy. l r um ,,'1 t " all 'rf - .

During the football season the cheerleaders looked more like at squad from a M"A"'S"'H unit than from a West Texas university. At one time five of the eight cheerleaders sported injuries that required casts, bandages or crutches. "People would make fun of us, saying cheerleading was harmful to your health and that we needed a trainer," said Terri Wilson, a junior from San Angelo who led cheers with a cut on her foot. "A lot of people thought it was funny," said Matt Ray, sophomore from Dallas who dislocated his knee in the fall. But, he added, many students told him they ap- preciated the cheerleaders for attending games even while injured. Eventually the hapless squad had all members in working order and introduced routines that ACU cheerleaders reportedly had never before done. The cheerleaders built three-men pyramids and performed stunts that used a mini trampoline. Nelson Coates, senior from Abilene, said past years' squads had not used such events. Another aspect of the 1981-82 cheerleading year that Wilson said she ap- preciated was the group's closeness. She said the cheerleaders tried to help each other instead of competing with each other. ln addition to their spirit-raising func- tion at football and basketball games, the cheerleaders conducted pep rallies, decorated team locker rooms and spon- sored a watermelon feast. The squad also led workouts and tryouts for the freshman cheerleaders in the fall. The cheerleaders conducted a spring semester clinic for students who wanted to try out for the 1982-83 cheerleading squad.

Morris has served the thletic department for 58 years as oach of all sports, as athletic directo April ACU head r and n helping raise funds through the develop- nentoffice. However, Coach Morris' HC- omplishments cannot be measured in his oaching skills or how well he can in- luence donors. His accomplishments are greater than caching a young man how to shoot a iasketball, how to tackle a running back or .ow to turn a double play. Coach Morris has taught young athletes ow to play the game of life. On April 10, many of those athletes A .ow successful career men - and members of the ACU family gathered at a -100-a-plate dinner to honor Morris a nd to et up the A. B. Morris Endowed Coaching lcholarship to continue the training of Ihristian coaches and teachers. In conjunction with the appreci inner, Abilene Mayor Elbert ation Hall eclared April 10 "A. B. and Rebecca florris Appreciation Day." Chancellor John C. Stevens read the roclamation at the dinner and presented florris with a copy of the proclamation. Morris was born Friday, April 13, 1 DeSoto. By the time he graduated igh school in Wheatland, friends oaches knew that the scrappy little is was going to be a great athlete. 1900, from and Mor- I' hey were so impressed they persuaded Morris to enter Texas A8cM, where e was destined to become an athletic :gend as a shortstop and a quarterback. Before Morris graduated from A8c Min 923 with a bachelor's degree in griculture, he earned all-Southwest Con- erence honors in baseball and as quarter- ack, led the Aggies to victory in the first lpposite page: Coach A. B. Morris at- ands a reception in honor ofA CU em lorris has been associated with niversity since 1923. eriti. the Cotton Bowl game. Once the A 8: M yearbook referred to him as "the boy with the million-dollar toe" in respect for his place kicking abilities. After coaching and teaching on the high school level for a year, Morris came to ACU in 1924 at the invitation of ACU President Batsell Baxter. He brought one assistant coach, Guy Scruggs, with him, and together they began to build ACU's athletic department to national recogni- tion. Times were hard and sometimes even finding transportation to scheduled games was difficult, but Morris never quit, a fact his athletes took to heart. M orris coached football at ACU for 18 years before stepping down to con- centrate on baseball and basketball. In 1955 he retired from coaching completely to concentrate on the duties of athletic director, a position he kept until 1969. Morris is now in charge of the A. B. Morris Athletic Fund, the name given to the fund after he began his work as athletic director emeritus. At the dinner, Wally Bullington, athletic director, said one of his biggest concerns about the future of ACU was to keep producing coaches with "A. B. Mor- ris traits." Thus the idea of the A. B. Morris En- dowed Coaching Scholarship was created, and before the banquet began, nearly 560,000 had been collected for the fund surpassing the initial goal of 550,000 President William J. Teague said anyone involved with ACU will remember Morris "fondly, happily and because his influence will always be with us." S everal times during the evening Morris' ex-athletes paid tribute to the man known to them as "Coach": 0 Oliver Jackson, ACU track coach from 1948-63 and master of ceremonies for the dinner, called Morris' life "the brightest shing light in Texas." ' Lee Powell, an honorary co-chairman of the dinner and captain of the 1932 foot- ball squad, said Morris' influence has been "very, very great" on ACU and his former athletes. 0 Chesley McDonald, an honorary co- chairman of the dinner and member of the Board of Trustees, called Morris a "cham- pion ofthe little man." ' "Leaping" Leon Reese, representing Morris' athletes of the pre-World War ll era, said the greatest tribute paid to Mor- ris is the success of his athletes in life. He called Morris "a great teacher, not only of athletics but of life . . .a Christian in every way." Guest speaker Leeman Bennett, head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, spoke about the influence a coach can have on young people. He said, "As a coach, 1 know how many hours Coach Morris put in working with youth. There is no way to calculate the hours in terms of what they meant to those young people. Coach Morris is a simple man, but what he did takes the greatest of abilities. He made boys into men." T oward the end of the evening, Jackson presented Morris and his wife, Rebec- ca, with a journal of the evening's events and the names of the contributors to the scholarship fund. Coach Morris stood and in a voice echo- ing the years of hard work, said, "You've all pretty much covered the waterfront, but I have a few things to say." "I came here in September 1924, and I started all this mess. We had three major sports, and we coached the best we knew how. Now, 58 years later, as I look out and see your faces, 1 talk to you, but l speak also to the countless others who have been in my life who could not be here or who have gone on." "And to that eternity of people I say, my wife, Rebecca, and 1 thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and you have our blessings. This period of my life, this time spent here on this campus, has been the most wonderful thing to ever happen to me. My blessings go to all of you." With those words, Morris sat beside his devoted wife, while the audience stood and applauded "the man of the century in ACU athletics." - Jay Friddell A. B.

"The first day in any new environment is easy to remember because of the stress associated with a move and the anticipa- tion of new challenges. "Peggy and I had planned to arrive a few hours ahead of the moving van that contained our household furnishings. The day was very warm, as is customary for late June in Abilene. We had been in the house only a few minutes when ACU students began to arrive to help us unload the van and unpack the contents. Later in the day, members of the ad- ministration brought food for us to share. That day, as has been true of the days that followed, was filled with work shared by students who were interested in making us feel welcome and supported. "The support and working together did not end at the close of the day. Since that time, practically no day passes that some student, faculty member, staff member or administrator doesn't take the time to offer encouragement and assistance.

Vice President and Staff for Student Services "The depression years were difficult for many peo- ple, but for some at Abilene Christian University they were character building years. From the class of 1931 to the class of 1941 there are couples that have met an- nually for the past 35 years because they were college friends. The joy of being with each other is the princi- ple reason for meeting. It was my privilege to meet with this group again this year. "The annual meeting began in 1947 when Lefty and Blanche Walker of Ozona, Texas, invited 13 couples that were in school together to the Devilis River for a fellowship weekend. From this beginning the group has grown to approx- imately 60 people. Each summer for 15 years the group met on the Devil's River, the next six years in San Marcos, then for 10 years in Brady. For the past 126 Administration four years the group has met at the Lake Cisco Chris tian Camp. The group also meets in Austin during th Texas Relays. "The first Friday, Saturday and Sunday in June yo' will find this friendly group enjoying the experience o the year and more than that, stories of college days The sons and daughters of these graduates have at tended ACU and it is amazing how this group ha developed into a charming family of grandparents. "Lefty Walker stated the reason the 60 of us are sl close is that we knew each other so well when we wer in Abilene Christian. I have to agree. Students toda miss a golden opportunity when they do not share wit one another and enjoy the fellowship that comes fron just being together. It is wonderful to have friends whl stick closer than brothersf' - Garvin Beauchamp l jRONT ROW - Randy Clinton, Tom Clark, David Williamson, Ann Roberts Hill, Suzanne Allmon, Dewby Ray, Beth McCasland, Linda Bragg, Clark Potts.

He will go above and beyond he call of duty and he always comes through when here is something you really need to have done at a :ertain time.

"It also reminded me of the responsibility that each of us has to do whatever is possible to encourage one another, cheerfully serve one another and lighten the burden for one another whenever we have the opportunity.

My serving on the Abilene City Council provided many such comments when the council held a three-day workshop in the Living Room of the McGlothlin Cam- pus Center during this past year. In addition to the other members of the council, various city staff members and representatives of the news media were on campus. "One of the first observations was regarding the fact that students, faculty and staff did not smoke on cam- pus. This provided an excellent opportunity to discuss how ACU strives to be different in a positive way, while providing a quality education. l28 Administration "While the comments were varied, the statement heard most often concerned the students. Of course the usual comment of "they look younger every year' was heard, but most often the comments were regard ing the appearance of the students. This made me wish that those visitors could atteni Chapel and some of the classes to really get to know the students. This would have allowed them to know that the outward appearance is only an indication o the inward beauty reflected by the students of ACU.

Vice President and Staff for Academic Affair "As one in a position to have information from more than 200 faculty members came across my desk, there have been many times when my emotions have been touched. One feels a vicarious sense of achievement when a doctorate is completed successfully or a promo- tion is granted. One also feels very keenly the messages of sorrow that inevitably come to such a group. "In October a flood came to Abilene, and among those who were hurt were emeriti, students and facul- ty. Flood waters covered floors, furniture and drapes with mud and threatened life itself. HI was raised by family members who gave up their work routines when neighbors were struck by tragedy. If there was a death, they prepared food, visited, of- fered consolation. If sickness struck a family bread- winner, they helped do his work. "When that flood came, I found my office respon- sibilities just as demanding as ever, so hour by hour I worked on budgets, held conferences, worked on reports 1 and developed a real sense of guilt because I was not down on Cedar Creek helping friends meet their crises. "Then I heard some heartwarming news. The Clyde Austins and the Charles Rudolphs were helping the Ed Headricks. Jerry Drennan, other faculty members, students from the industrial education department and others, including my wife, went to help Mrs. Bert Mosier. ACU students volunteered in such numbers at the Mosier home that there was not room for all to work. "Though I had not helped personally, I felt good about our ACU family. That family truly was ministering to flood victims when help was needed." - Edward M. Brown. Administration oard of Trustees The Board of Trustees made two of its most impor- tant decisions at its February meeting during Lectureship. The board voted to separate Abilene Christian University from the ACU-Dallas operation beginning June l. The former Dallas extension changed its name to Amber University. The board,s decision to separate the Dallas program appeared to make the university smaller. However, the board secured the schoolis ability to expand by deter- mining how the 246 acres of Rainy Creek land east of the campus would be used. About 150 acres of the land, which the school acquired in January, would be made available for commercial and residential pur- poses, and 95 acres would be added to the campus, said W. C. "Dub', Orr, board secretary. The board, a self-perpetuating body, also met the day of opening Chapel in August and the weekend of Commencement in May. At other times during the year the executive committee, led by chairman Ray McGlothlin Jr. of Abilene, worked with the university administration. This page: top left - President William J.

The proposed building would have enough classrooms and offices to ac- commodate 1,700 business majors. About 1,200 students were enrolled as business majors in 1981-82, said Jozelle Brister, assistant professor. The year before the department reported 1,126 majors.

Business faculty members began in- vestigating the possibilities of constructing a new business building shortly after the department of business became a college in May 1981, Ms. Brister said. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state, spoke at a promotional breakfast in Dallas for the College of Business. A group of the college's supporters were introduced at the breakfast attended by about 600 people. The reorganization of the school's departments into colleges also brought some administrative changes in the Col- lege of Business. Ms. Brister, who joined the faculty in 1979, became assistant dean to Dr. William Petty, dean of the college. Ms. Brister said her duties included mostly administrative details, leaving Petty free for long-range planning. One goal that she said Petty was plan- ning for was accreditation of the college by the American Assembly of Colleges and Schools of Business. ACU's business department was a member of the AACSB, but was not accredited by that group, Ms. Brister said. One of the assembly's criteria for ac- creditation was a student-teacher ratio of 25-to-1. ACU's ratio was 127 students for each full-time faculty member. In at- tempts to reduce that ratio, two professors were hired. Dr. Phillip Lewis was hired in the spring semester to begin teaching management courses in the fall of 1982. Lewis, a 1964 ACU graduate, had been with the Univer- sity of Oklahoma since 1970. Dr. Michael Robinson, who taught Cost Accounting, Managerial Accounting and Operations Research, joined the faculty in the spring semester. Robinson received his doctorate from the University of Illinois, known as the nation's foremost school for accounting. Also new to the campus was a chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a national business organization. The club, organized by Kathy Polk, a junior marketing major from Nebraska, was open to any student enrolled in a business class. Polk said the group intended to help promote awareness of American business among college students. Business majors also attended Business FRONT ROW - Ed Timmerman, Don Altman.

Council guides student Forum each Wednesday afternoon and heard speeches from local and visiting businessmen and women about their work. The class also heard about the Christian's role in business from Allen Tappe, univer- sity minister at Hillcrest Church of Christ, and Dr. Ed Mathews, associate professor of missions. Ms. Brister said the lectures by Tappe and Mathews helped underscore the em- phasis on Christian ethics, which Dr. Over- ton Faubus, former department chairman, had stressed for many years. She added that the training in ethics that ACU graduates received allowed them to "compete with schools like Texas Tech and the University of Texasf' The student Business Administration Council, staffed by upperclassmen, served as a liaison between faculty and students, Ms. Brister said. The council helped students schedule classes and seek tutor- ing. The B.A. Council also ran preregistra- tion and conducted faculty evaluations. Students also were involved in several specific business interest organizations. Junior and senior business majors had the opportunity to interview with represen- tatives of several business firms brought to the campus by the placement office and the business faculty. Research and scholarship outside the classroom also involved faculty members and administrators. Petty helped write a textbook for financial management, his seventh on the subject. The faculty also designed an associate degree in word processing to be offered in the 1982-83 academic year. Margie Pistole, assistant professor, said the degree was designed to meet the increased need for word processors in Texas cities.

"One reason is because it allows me to be exposed to lots of different students with majors other than businessf, Martha Mosier, associate professor of business administration, has taught many students how to type since she joined the ACU faculty in 1955. In addition to Beginning Typing, she taught In- termediate and Advanced Typing, Shorthand, Of- fice Administration and Methods of Teaching Business. She liked to get to know her students, she said, and she and her husband, Bert, a former associate professor of industrial education who died in 1981, often had students in their home for a "home-cooked meal" on Sunday afternoons or evenings. "We always tried to have students in our home," she explained. "And our guests were usually freshmen and out-of-state students who didn't have a place to go on the weekends." And many of the students they had entertained in their home, as well as other students, helped Mrs. Mosier clean her home after the flood in October. She said that "the industrial education department spearheaded the clean-up activity, and my house became the central meeting point for students who were helping others clean and salvage their homes and belongingsf, Mrs. Mosier had gone to stay with a friend the night before Cedar Creek rose above its banks and overflowed into her yard and home, but she said she wasn't worried when she left her house about the water reaching her home. She said she left her home because she was afraid the streets would flood and she wouldnit be able to get to school the next morning. When she returned to her home the next day and saw the damage that the flood waters had brought, she said, "I was devastated. I never dreamed the water would reach the house." She said that several times during an extreme- 1 rainy season the water had floode the year, but that it had never come into the house. It took her almost two months to repair the l38 Faculty Feature damage and make the house livable again, she said. "But the tragedy had a bright side. So many came to help," she said, "that I couldn't be sad for very long because so many good things came of it. I really learned to appreciate my Christian friendsf, She said the floodwaters damaged carpets and some of the furniture, but said that most of her anti- que furniture withstood the Columbus Day flood better than some of her other furnishings. She became more animated as she discussed anti- ques, and by her enthusiasm it was evident that she enjoyed collecting vintage pieces. "Antiques are not an expenditure, but an invest- ment," she said seriously. Mrs. Mosier said that she and her husband always had enjoyed going to auc- tions in various Texas cities and communities. And she said that one item she especially enjoyed collecting was antiqulpllglassware. Depression glass, ayfair and Mosier glass were a few of the varieties that she had in her glassware collection. And with a smile she said, "Of course, I like to collect Mosier glassf' She described Mosier glass as "pretty glass in shades of clear blue and green with enameled flowersf' and she said it was made at the turn of the century in France. She said it was hard to find, but she located several pieces, although she didn't buy them, during a vacation through several Southern and Eastern states that she and her daughter, Virginia, took dur- ing the first part of the summer. She laughingly told a story about a stop at an an- tique store during their vacation. "My daughter was looking for a piece of Miss America glass and the dealer said, 'You ought to go to Texas, I know they would have it theref " As she continued giving details about her trip and talking about some of the other pieces in her antique collection, one of her students, a girl from Thailand, popped her head in the office door and said, "live been wanting to come see you. I need to talk to you." And as Mrs. Mosier visited with the girl and en- couraged her to come visit any time, it was clear that she did indeed like to get to "know her students." Opposite page.'

V. V. ppypr The mural, commissioned by the local chapter of the American Association of University Women, was unveiled Jan. 21 at its home, the Abilene Civic Center. The 510,000 exhibit traced the cityls buffalo- roaming beginning to its oil-spouting present. Students had the opportunity to study the techniques of well-known artists when the department displayed several promi- nent exhibits in the Virginia Shore Art Gallery. The most significant collection was a 28-piece showing of American Abstract Expressionist Paintings that Norman Whitefield, gallery director and art pro- fessor, called "the most important exhibi- tion we have had." The exhibit, sponsored by the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation in Houston, was by leading post-World War II artists. Whitefield said these artists established the first American school of art and caused the center of the art world to move from Paris to New York. Green said the exhibit was one of the most prominent displays to come not only to ACU but also to Abilene. "The paintings were by a group of art- ists who were the 'masters of the old masters' of contemporary American art," Green said. "It isn't often that we are able to have an exhibit of such significance in Abilenef, Another display that sparked the in- terest of Abilene art-lovers was the September show of Florida artist Ray Burggraf. Green said Burggrafs large, colorful acrylic paintings were based on his impres- sions of places and experiences. Twenty art majors were graduating seniors, which caused several departmental changes, Green said. "The increase in the number of seniors in the program was not a reflection of in- creasing enrollment, but some students finished late, others finished early and some graduated on schedule," he said. The more than double number of seniors caused the doubling up of senior shows in the Shore Art Gallery, Green said. Another change was that the seven studios assigned to graduating seniors had to accommodate three students instead of the usual one or two students. However, Green said these changes didn't cause problems in the department, although some students were disappointed not to have a solo art show. "But on the other hand, it created stronger shows because the students had to limit their list of works to their best crea- tions," he said. Full-time faculty members were given the opportunity to show their work to the community when they participated in a series of lectures sponsored by the Abilene Fine Arts Museum. Faculty members spoke about their latest creations and discussed the techniques used. Green said classroom activities stressed creativity, and students were encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings. Ar 43 Bible umber of major down Although the number of freshman Bible majors was down to only 27 at the begin- ning of the year, Dr. B.J. Humble, pro- fessor of Bible and chairman of the Bible department, said the small number of ma- jors was probably a result of the fact that the Texas Equalization Grant was not available to Bible majors. Humble said that most freshmen were not aware of the Bible Equalization Grant, which was offered by the department along with other scholarships for Bible majors. Another change in the Bible department was the retirement of Dr. J.D. Thomas, professor of Bible. Thomas had served on the ACU Bible faculty since 1949 and was director of the annual Bible Lectureship for many years. He also served as head of the depart- ment from 1969 until 1979 and was the author of many books. A project of the Bible department was raising money for the construction of a new missions education facility. Dr. James Carley of Stillwater, Okla., was the committee chairman for a S500,000 drive that was part of a S2 million goal included in the Phase III Design for Development. The department, jointly with the com- munication department, offered a new graduate program called Religious Communication. It was a 36-hour inter-disciplinary degree which required 18 hours in biblical studies and 18 hours in communication course work, leading to a master of arts degree. The department also offered a prac- ticum for all Bible majors. It dealt with practical questions about Bible ministry that were not discussed in regular Bible classes and gave students a chance to meet other ministers and missionaries. Dr. Thomas Olbricht, Bible professor and dean of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, was one of 14 authors honored for contributions to a book, Rhetoric of Protest and Reform 1878-1898. The book received the 1981 Winans Wilchelns Award for distinguished scholarship in rhetoric and public address, which was given annually by the Speech Communication Association of America. Olbricht wrote chapter ll of the volume, Rhetoric in the Higher Criticism Controversy. Two other members of the Bible faculty, Dr. Carl Brecheen and Dr. Paul Faulkner, co-authors of Whatever happened to Mom, Dad, and the Kids, traveled in 86 cities teaching Marriage Enrichment Seminars. Humble and Thomas taught a Bible ex- tension program in Wichita Falls. The pro- gram offered semi-weekly classes for graduate credit. The courses included Restoration History, taught by Humble, and Contem- porary Religious Thought, taught by Thomas. Five member of the Bible faculty at- FRONT ROW - Neil Lightfoot, B.J.

Bringing Miss Brooks to ACU in Jovember was the English department's tiggest project. Her visit attracted approx- mately 300 people. Willerton attributed the large audience o Miss Brooks' ability to create interest in variety of people. Because she's a black roman and an accomplished writer, she ttracted women's organizations, the JAACP, aspiring and accomplished lriters and all poetry lovers, he said. "Many just came to see what a Pulitzer 'rize winner looked 1ike,', said Willerton, miling. And to those who came, the energetic 14-year-old was no disappointment. Brooks, the first Pulitzer Prize recipient o come to ACU in several years, made a tositive impression on everyone, especially he students, said Willerton. Her interest in students was ,emonstrated when she took an ACU stu- .ent's manuscript with her to read and ritique in her room before leaving xbilene. Everyone can identify with the subject natter of her work, Willerton said. "Her vriting crosses racial boundries. It deals vith the common problems of life. She is ,ble to make sense of things that don't nake sense? Brooks was a recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for her poetry book Annie Allen, numerous awards for creative writing, two Guggenheim fellowships and 40 honorary doctoral degrees. The funding for the Brooks, visit came from three groups: the Students' Associa- tion, the Cullen Foundation and the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council. That particular combination of grants had never been used by the English depart- ment in a joint effort toward one project, said Willerton. The funding procedure worked well because it served the many different in- terests of the funding groups as well as the community, he said. Besides bringing Brooks to ACU, another first for the English department was a new creative writing course. ,The course was called Topics in Writing. Willerton taught the class which focused on poetry and fiction writing for advanced writers. Another course offered by the English department was a tour and study of Lon- don, England. The three-week tour, part of Maymester, was a three-hour course taught by Preston Harper, professor of English. Students studied literature and culture at Richmond College in London where they lived during their stay. The English Club, a student organiza- tion, published its annual literary magazine, the Pickwicker, in April. The Pickwicker included stories, poems, essays, photographs and art work by students. Sigma Tau Delta, the English honor .Sf organization, sponsored the Rhetta Scott Garrett creative writing contest in February. This contest consisted of entries in the divisions of poetry, short stories and essays. Two English faculty members, Dr. David Williams, associate professor, and Dr. Dale Priest, assistant professor, were selected in November as officers of special sessions for the fall 1982 meeting of the South Central Modern Language Association. Williams also was appointed as a regional judge for the 1981 National Council of Teachers of English Achieve- ment Awards in Writing Program. The council recommends high school seniors to colleges and universities for admission and financial aid based on performance in competition.

English Foreign Languages Williams receives Exxon grant It may sound like something you would order in a Mexican restaurant, but it's not. La Tertulia was the ACU Spanish club, which had approximately 15 members who met once a week and listened to Spanish speakers or had Spanish devotionals. La Tertulia and the foreign language department served a dual purpose of teaching students foreign languages and helping foreign students who could not speak English, or had difficulty with the language. "Our specific purpose is to provide a place where students of Spanish and Spanish speakers can get together to share the languagef, said senior Bible major Mike Beggs, La Tertulia president. Beggs also said that the club tried to help students from Guatemala and other students from Spanish-speaking countries adjust to ACU. Besides learning Spanish through the Spanish club, students had the opportunity to learn different languages in language lab. In the language labs students listened to tapes to improve their speaking abilities. The language lab had 128 tape recorders, 20 listening booths and was manned by an instructor at designated times during the week. The chairman of the department, Dr. John H. Williams, taught French, one of the four languages available for study at ACU, and studied French culture and Renaissance French poetry. 148 Foreign Languages Williams received a grant from ACU to work on a book titled, Aux Prises avec des Francais: A Bilingual Culture Assimilator. The book was designed to aid students or travelers in resolving conflicts with the French. Williams submitted the book for publication during the spring semester. Besides working on the publication of his book, Dr. Williams wrote an article for the French Review entitled "Stalking the Perfect Culture Assimilatorf, The article appeared in the April issue. At the end of the fall semester Dr. Williams attended the "Workshop for the Development of Foreign Language and Literature Programs? The workshop met in New York City and was sponsored by the Exxon Foundation and the University of Philadelphia. Williams received a grant from the Ex- xon Foundation and assistance from ACU to attend the four-day convention. He also attended other conventions, in- cluding the national meeting of the American Association of Teachers of French in Cincinnati, the Modern Language Association meeting in New York and the Kentucky Modern Language Conference. Dr. David Dowdey, assistant professor and German teacher, began a new phase in his study of the "Protestant Clergy and the Question of Anti-Semitism in Seventeenth and Early Eighteenth-Century Germanyf, "The study primarily concerns Mose Mendelssohn, a German Jewisl philosopher," Dowdey said. "But I'm als interested in the Protestant clergy and th ideas they were perpetrating during thi era." Dowdey has studied Mendelssohn fo more than four years. He hoped his wor would result in a book within the next tw of three years or possibly some shoi papers published in language journals. Dowdey attended the South-Centrz Modern Language Association meeting i Austin and the meeting of the Lessin Society in Houston. Other professors, Robert Brown, wh taught Portuguese and Spanish, and Tro Mark Jones, who taught Spanish an French, attended the Texas Foreig Language Association Conference in Sa Antonio.

Foreign Languages - 149 Government homp on seeks re-election, Most members of the department of government took a step down at the begin- ning of the spring semester, moving out of offices in the Administration Building and into new ones on the first floor of the Don H. Morris Center. At the same time, the department was stepping out of classrooms and into the real world of government and politics. Notable in this area was the chairman of the department, Dr. Gary Thompson, who was in the middle of his second term as a member of the Texas House of Represen- tatives. In addition to his regular duties in Austin in this capacity, Thompson traveled to Washington, D.C., to hear the State of the Union address and attend a briefing about regional councils of government, represented Texas for the third year in a row at a conference of the Southern Regional Education Board and served as a member of the West Central Texas Coun- cil of Governments. Thompson filed in the spring for re- election to a third term in the House and was opposed by Robert English, who studied under Thompson before graduating from ACU in 1971. English, active in the NAACP, said that Thompson was not representing minorities and other groups in Abilene. In the fall, it appeared for a time that if Thompson ran for re-election, he would face his fellow incumbent and friend Rep. Walter Grubbs. When congressional district boundaries were redrawn by the Legislative Redistricting Board, the two Abilenians found themselves paired in a single district. However, Grubbs moved from his Abilene home to nearby Merkel, which lay in the district represented by Bill Heatly, senior member of the House. Ironically, the new boundary lines left Grubbs with more supporters than Heatly had in District 78. Also active outside the classroom was Ray Inzer, assistant professor of govern- ment, who served as an election judge in the precinct that includes most residents on the ACU Hill, and Mel Hailey, assis- tant professor of government, who was in- volved actively in the local Democratic Party. Hailey coordinated an appreciation lun- cheon for Thompson in October at the l50 Government ,. nf' FRONT ROW - Mel Hailey, Ray lnzer.

Many of these speakers were sponsored by the stu- dent political organizations on campus: the ACU Democratic and the Young Republicans. Young Republican activities included receptions for George Strake, former secretary of state running for lieutenant governor, and U.S. Rep. Jim Collins. The ACU Democrats sponsored a dinner for former U.S. Rep. Omar Burleson and in March conducted a voter registration drive. Several students gained hands-on ex- perience with local government by par- ticipating in the Public Service Internship program. They worked at civil service jobs with the Department of Human Resources, City Hall, West Central Texas Council of Governments, Abilene State School and other local divisions of government. Taking over as director of the Public Service Internships in the spring semester was a new faculty member, Robert Ed- ward Williams. After graduating from ACU in 1980, Williams received his master's degree in 1982 from the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. The assistant professor also taught courses in International Relations and Government and Business. Williams said that teaching alongside two of his former professors - Thompson and Hailey - "took some adjustment." But although it was initially difficult, he said his return to his alma mater as a faculty member was a good experience. 53" 'Q 4 Q 5 Z J Z 2 if"--fi ifikf .W-""""'n"." -f"',:.W---' had 5 N Government I 5 152 - History History APO fund hi torical marker ACU made history this year - in the iteral sense. Monday, Feb. 8, saw the unveiling of the iistorical marker placed on the ACU cam- nus by the Texas State Historical Commission. l And not surprisingly, the ACU history lepartment was instrumental in the place- nent of the marker. History professor lohn Robinson, a member of the Taylor Iounty Historical Commission, was one of he local commission members who work- :d to receive the designation rom the state agency. The marker, funded by the Alpha Phi Jmega fraternity organization, was placed in the west end of the campus in front of he Administration Building on Campus fourt, and read: "This school, formed to rrovide a Christian education for all grade evels, was founded in 1906 by A.

It was first call- ed Childers Classical Institute in honor of Col. J .W. Childers, who deeded his homesite at North First and Victoria Streets for use as a campus. Early expan- sion of the institution began in 1912 with the 12-year presidency of Jesse P. Sewell. In 1920 it became Abilene Christian Col- lege and nine years later was moved to new facilities here. The present name was adopted in 1976." Robin Worsham, president of Alpha Phi Omega, was joined in the unveiling ceremony by another ACU historical figure of sorts - Chancellor John C. Stevens. Dr. Stevens, himself an ACU president for 12 years, unveiled other historical plans for the university. In the spring Dr. Stevens announced he planned to continue his interest in history and teach a class in that department in the fall semester of 1982. And while the department gained Stevens as a faculty member, it lost one, too. During the fall semester, Dr. Joe Spaulding announced his retirement effec- tive in May. Spaulding told reporters that after 18 years as a history professor he was "ready to retire and travel, read and preach." Other history professors followed pur- suits outside the classroom as Dr. Benny Gallaway spoke at the monthly Research RONT ROW - Beatrice Speck, Arlie Hoover.

Gallaway's topic centered on "Some Grassroots Insights in- to the Civil War: The Paper of Private Soldiers," and was based on research Gallaway did for his book, The Ragged Rebel: A Common Soldier in Parsons' Texas Cavalry. Literary contributions also were made by Dr. Robinson, who published a book titled Living Hard: Southern Americans in the Great Depression. Dr. Beatrice Speck also said many faculty members of the department "read papers and chaired sessions at historical conferences." Student participation was also a part of the history department as Phi Alpha Theta, the international history honor society, inducted several new members. The club also served as hosts at a reception during Homecoming weekend for all former and present members of the cam- pus organization. Black History Month provided history department faculty and students the op- portunity for service, with a month of recognition of the achievements, problems, lifestyles and interests of ACU's black community. History professor Dr. Arlie Hoover and the Student's Association co-sponsored the series of events in February, which includ- ed panel discussions, a film on Martin Luther King and special presentations by notable blacks in the professional world. if .rr ' ., s. L 1 History 153 Music aculty, majors learn b doing Perhaps no academic department prac- ticed learning by doing as much as the music department did. Music department faculty members per- formed, entered contests, composed new works and arranged for other musicians to perform or lecture on campus. Music department majors also per- formed, entered contests and composed new works as well as studying under the departmentls active faculty. The department took its learn-by-doing orientation outside of the school, even out- side ofthe state, with a hymn-writing con- test. Gary Mabry, instructor of music and contest coordinator, announced the contest in late September. By the time the entries were judged in February, more than 190 entries had ar- rived, several more than expected. Entries, which were evaluated without the judges knowing the composers' names, came from 26 states and from as far away as Maryland and Oregon. Yet ironically the contest winner was Abilenian Dr. George Ewing, professor of English. Ewing said he had worked off and on for several years on the lyrics of his win- ning entry, "The Lamb of God." Mabry presented the S100 first-place prize to Ewing at the A Cappella concert Feb. 21, the opening night of Lectureship. The chorus then performed Ewing's work. A Cappella, directed by Milton Pullen, professor of music, also performed other pieces in the Lectureship concert and other concerts throughout the year. The chorus, which the music department promoted as the oldest a cappella chorus in the Southwest, performed on campus in Oc- tober, December and April and toured New Mexico, Colorado and Oklahoma in January.

The mixed-voice group, directed by Mabry, also went on a two-week tour that included performances at the World's Fair at Knoxville, Tenn., and in Washington, D.C. Two other vocal groups that let students learn by doing were the Concert Chorale and Choralaires. The former, a mixed- voice choir directed by Pullen, was made up of musicians who were less advanced than A Cappella members. The latter traditionally had been a mixed-voice group. But so few men audi- tioned in the fall that Choralaires became an all-female group. However, 15 men joined the group in the spring. Another change in the fall occurred when the Big Purple marching band began using the corps marching style in football halftime shows. The marching style, which was used by drum and bugle corps, brought football fans a showier perfor- mance than the more military style used before. John Whitwell, director of bands and a 1965 ACU graduate, introduced the mar- ching style in the fall when he returned to ACU after teaching music in the Michigan public schools. Whitwell also directed the Symphonic Band, which met at the same time as the Concert Band, directed by Ed George, assistant professor of music. George also directed the Five O'Clock Jazz Ensemble, which participated in the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council series of brown bag concerts. A Four O'Clock ensemble, directed by Mel Witcher, senior music education major, formed to accom- modate growing interest in performing jazz. Students interested in learning about classical works by performing them played with the Symphonic and Concert Bands and the ACU Orchestra. Dr. Ronald Rathbun, professor of music, directed the orchestra in three major symphonies for the groupls December, February and April concerts. Dr. M. L. Daniels, professor of music, also worked with a symphony, but instead of playing one he composed one. The Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra per- formed his work, "Fanfare Symphony" as its opening selection March 30. The professor also published "Prelude and Dance" in the fall and conducted the piece Dec. 16 at the Midwest Band and Orchestra Convention in Chicago. Daniels and George each composed a piece for President William J. Teague's Feb. 20 in- auguration, as did Dr. Sally Reid, depart- ment chairman. Earlier in February faculty and studen Q gathered for a five-day seminar conductf by Elizabeth A. H.

Daniels, Milton Pullen, X' ailey runs, but not for office Their story sounds like a plot from a nostalgic movie. Three college roommates studied together, ate together and laughed together. After four years of school, their graduation day arrived. As they told each other goodbye, they also made plans for a reu- nion - a reunion in a 6.2-mile race. The roommates were Randy Jolley, now a graphic designer in Dallas, Ken Baker, now a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter in Abilene, and Mel Hailey, now an assistant professor of government at ACU. Of the three 1970 graduates of ACU, two were runners. Hailey was not. But Hailey said he decided that a running reunion with his college roommates would be worth the toil of training for the long distance race. So he began his training for the reunion in the Capital 10,000 race in Austin. As the day of the race drew near, Hailey learned that business obligations would keep Jolley from running in the reunion race. Then Hailey heard from Baker who had a case of flu and also would not be able to run. Although the race would not be a reunion, Hailey said he decided his training would not be in vain. He ran the Capital 10,000 alone. Since then Hailey has run in several long-distance races including the 26-mile White Rock Marathon in Dallas. Hailey ran that marathon in 3:09, about one hour and one minute more than tie world record time for the marathon. The government teacher's demeanor as he spoke about running helped convince his listener that he was serious about his sport. And if his words were not enough to show his deep involvement, his runn- ing schedule was. Hailey said he ran 40 miles a week when he was not training for a race and 60 miles a week when he was preparing for one. Hailey also took seriously his work as an assistant professor and was just as excited about the workings of government as he was about running. Hailey left his position as a teacher in the ACU government department in July to become a doctoral student in the Texas Tech University political science depart- ment, where in 1973 he had received his master's degree. Hailey said he would like to focus his research for his doctorate on the presidency and political parties. The ACU graduate said he planned to return to ACU after completing his two-year graduate pro- gram to continue his workin the government depart- ment. Hailey began teaching in the department in 1979 and said he has high aspirations for the depart- ment that was separated from the history depart- ment that same year. One dream he said he has for ACU's government department is the establishment of a travel-study program that would allow students to observe governmental workings on the scene in Austin and Washington, D.C. He said he also would like to see the department establish internship programs in the state and national capitals and programs for students to work in professional political organizations. In addition to studying and teaching about the governmental system, Hailey also has participated in the political process. He managed fellow Democrat Gary Thompson's 1982 primary cam- paign for re-election to the Texas House of Representatives. Thompson won his primary elec- tion in May and did not face a Republican opponent for the November general election. In 1980 Hailey represented Texas at the Democratic national convention. His participation in the convention was quite valuable, Hailey said, because "a lot of the reality of what actually takes place is lost when you study that part of the govern- mental system." Yet despite Hailey's behind-the-scenes involve- ment in the political process, he said he had no aspirations to become an elected official. He was content to confine his running to long-distance races and let others become the officials and bureaucrats he would study and teach about. - Kim Miller and Kelly Deatherage Opposite page: Mel Hailey 156 Faculty Feature Faculty Feature - 157 I , ll l lllll lll l - 1- , , .W W. e N, 158 - College of Natural and Applied Sciences Applied Sciences Perry Reeves, dean .Vf""" ,f"""'. u ' Opposite page: Carlton Ash, a junior chemistry major, adjusts the equipment during an experiment for his lab.

College of Natural and Applied Sciences 159 Agriculture Judging team give experience How can one be judged for the way he judges? Members of the livestock judging team could tell you, it happened to them often. The team entered competitions against judging teams from colleges and univer- sities across the nation. The competitions included four categories: sheep, swine, cat- tle and horses. Members of the team examined four animals in each category and rated them according to a set of criteria, placing the best animal first. After making a decision, each team member received two minutes to explain to the officials why he ranked the animals in the order he did. Competitors were judged on how closely their rankings matched that of the officials and how well they explained why they chose that order. Brad Stuart, senior agriculture business major from Roby and former judging team member, emphasized the importance of the competitions. "The judging competitions teach you what to look for in an animal,', he said. "It's probably the most beneficial ex- perience students can have as far as livestock is concerned." The livestock judging team competed in approximately eight meets. The meets were in Louisiana, Colorado, Houston and elsewhere in the South and West. The team received no money from the school to attend the competitions, Stuart 160 Agriculture said. Instead their financial support came from the Block and Bridle Club and the Aggie Club. Stuart, who was president of the Block and Bridle Club, said both clubs supported the judging team by raising money through various joint projects. Among the projects were a fall ham sale and a horse show. "Sometimes, in spite of our support, a team member has to pay for his own lodg- ing and meals," Stuart said, "so the com- petition is something that takes dedication and desire." All students who attended the competi- tions learned to judge livestock in Dr. Ed DuBose's course, Livestock Judging. The class met on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 6 p.m. Students in the class went to area ranches and practiced judging the livestock on the ranches. "We've gone to ranches in Roby, Roscoe, Sweetwater, Clyde, Stamford and several other places that are within an hour's drive of Abilenej' said DuBose. 'Sometimes we will leave for a judging competition a couple of days early and visit ranches or colleges farther away. Before the Houston competition we stopped at Texas A8cM to practice." DuBose has coached livestock judging teams since 1954. He started as ACU's coach 17 years ago. "I guess the reason I really enjoy livestock judging so much is the competition aspect," he said. Besides his teaching duties, DuBose was involved in agricultural research. He wa in the fourth year of a project titlec "Weanling Equine Nutrition: Proteii Levels and Utilization of Urea." Two other professors in the agricultur- department also conducted research. Dr. Francis Churchill studiec "Ecological Relationships with the Blacl Tailed Prairie Dog and the Black-Footee Ferret." Churchillis project was designee to map all the "towns,' of Texas prairil dogs and to locate the almost extinc black-footed ferret. Dr. Ed Brokaw studied the positive rela tionships between thyroid levels in cattl and weight gain in a study titled "The In vestigation of the Predictive Value o Thyroid Indices in the Evaluation of Bee Cattle Performance."

After graduation loomed the continua- tion of studies at medical and other health-science professional schools, where ACU's placement percentage of roughly 60 percent ranked well above the national average. In the fall of 1982, l0 professional health schools accepted 21 current and former students from the newly organized College of Natural and Applied Sciences, said Dr. John Little, biology professor and health professions adviser, who served on the National Committee of Pre-Medical Advisers. Schools that accepted ACU graduates included the University of Texas Medical and Dental Schools, the Baylor Colleges of Medicine and Dentistry, the Medical Schools at the University of Kansas and the University of Tennessee, to name only a few. While the biology department wasn't the only major field in the College of Natural and Applied Sciences to graduate prospective health professionals, the ma- jority of those who applied to pre- professional schools were biology majors.

While the pre-professional programs were strongly emphasized, the biology department also graduated many general biology majors specializing in various types of research. Dr. Clark Stevens, chairman of the department, estimated that approximately 20 students were employed by the department in research and laboratory work during the school year. Students conducted research under the supervision of various faculty members for presentations of papers and work at scien- tific conventions. Stevens, Dr. Archie Manis, Dr. Gerald Wilson and Luther Winans, assistant pro- fessor, attended the American Society of Microbiology, Texas Chapter, in San An- tonio in October. Winans, who occupied a joint position as a member of the faculty at ACU as well as with the Health Sciences Center in Abilene, presented a paper at the meeting. Other meetings for faculty members in- cluded the Texas Academy of Sciences, which was attended by Dr. Roy Shake and Dr. Ken Williams. The TAS meeting also was attended by Texas biology students, but none from ACU were represented, said Steve Laman, president of the student biology society Beta Beta Beta. Laman, originally vice president of the group, said Tri-Beta's ac- tivities were somewhat hindered in the spring by the loss of the group's first presi- dent, Robert Cole. Laman said Cole had prepared a presentation for the TAS meeting but was unable to attend as he had planned. Other officers for the group for 1981-82 included Faye Armstrong, secretaryg Cathy McCoy, treasurer, Marla Ferguson, historian, and Dr. Manis, adviser. Biology Chemistry ab fire causes 51,000 dama e Brent Kirschner, senior chemistry ma- jor, was studying in the basement of the Foster Science Building at 2:30 a.m. Oct. 16 when he smelled smoke. "At first I thought it was my imagina- tion," he said later. "But the smell just got stronger so I called the campus police. We looked around, but couldn't find anything. The smoke got worse so we called the fire department." Seven fire fighting units responded to the alarm. Firemen searched the smoky basement and ground floor of the science building. The air conditioning system had spread the smoke throughout the building. Firemen and campus police officers opened the door to the lab above the room where Kirschner had been studying, in time to see a gallon jar of formaldehyde catch fire and explode. It was the first chemical affected by the blaze. The source of the fire was a bottle of mineral oil left on a hot plate for an experi- ment being conducted by Ron Thompson, a junior chemistry major from Abilene. Dr. Ben Hutchinson, professor of chemistry and teacher in the lab, said that the mineral oil must have reached its "flash pointl' to start the fire, but that Thompson was not at fault, and the temperature had not been too high or been turned up. The fire caused approximately 51,000 worth of damage to the floor, two cabinets and a vacuum pump. Smoke damaged the entire lab. 164 Chemistry The chemistry department faculty also was active in research and received several grants. Five research projects involved five professors, 13 students and almost Sl50,000 in grants for equipment, scholar- ships and salaries. Concerning the professors who received grants, Dr. Tommy McCord, chairman of the chemistry department, emphasized productivity in researching the projects. "If you arenlt productive then you won't receive grant money," he said. McCord said one way of showing pro- ductivity was to publish reports on research in the various chemistry journals. Ten reports prepared by chemistry faculty members were published in seven different journals. "Dr. Alvie Davis and I began receiving grant money from the Welch Foundation in l962," McCord said. "The department as a whole has received more than one million dollars from the foundation since that time." The Robert A. Welch Foundation made grants of almost Sl30,000 for research done by Dr. McCord and four other professors. "Around 65 percent of the grant money goes to scholarships for students," McCord explained. "Without that money some students couldn't go to school heref, The department also received grants from ACUIS Research Council, totaling 54,250 for research faculty grants and mentation. Money was not the only gift th chemistry department received. The Texa division of the Dow Chemical Co., locate in Freeport, donated a gel permeatio chromatograph to the department. Bill Knight, a research scientist for Doi and graduate of ACU, presented the ir strument to the department. They used th chromatograph to find the molecula weight density of polymers, or plastic: Chemists analyzed the information an predicted how the polymers would perforr in different structures.

About 200 students participated in a March jump-a-thon in Moody Coliseum, and raised more than S6,000, Campbell said. The P.E. department also was one of four in Texas to join an adaptive physical education program designed to instruct college educators on training students to teach physical education to the physically handicapped. The program was the first of its kind in Texas, said Lynn Luttrell, physical education instructor and ACU's representative to the program. Texas Woman's University in Denton started the program with the aid of a federal grant, and selected ACU, McMurry College, the University of Houston and Lamar College of Beaumont to participate, said Luttrell. The participants attended several weekend workshops at such places as the Abilene State School and the West Texas Rehabilitation Center, where they received practical experience in working with the handicapped. Many teachers who instructed the han- dicapped had training that did not specifically include how to work with the handicapped, Luttrell said. The new pro- gram enabled ACU to expand its cur- riculum and offer more hours in this area of physical education, he said. The adaptive physical education pro- gram wasn't the only new activity for the P.E. department. A new sport, pickle-ball, FRONT ROW - Addie Felts, Dwain Hart, Dickie Hill. ROW 2 - Cleddy Varner, Liz Campbell, Joyce Cur- tis, Lynn Luttrell, Curt Dickson, Ben Zickefoose, Beth McLesky. was taught during the spring semester by Dr. Joyce Curtis, physical education professor. Pickle-ball was developed about five years ago in the California and Washington areas. The game is played on a badminton court and can be played singles or doubles. Players used plywood rackets, about the size of racquetball rackets, and a badminton net, lowered to 36 inches above the ground. The new sport had the same point system for scoring as badminton. The ball, about 3 inches in diameter, was similar to a whiffle ball and moved slower than a tennis ball. Although pickle-ball was a medium-speed game, it provided a good workout, Curtis said. The speed of the game made pickle-ball easy to learn, she added. Another course that attracted fitness- minded students was the Aerobics class taught by Dr. Curt Dickson, associate pro- fessor of physical education. Aerobics was basically a running, walk- ing exercise class. Members of the class learned such things as clothing selection, running safety, running areas, running mechanics and distances. The text for the class was Dr. Kenneth Cooper's The Aerobics Way, which described a program with a point system for exercises that stimulate heart and lung activity, such as running, swimming, cycl- ing and jumping rope. Class participants were expected to run at least one mile dur- ing each session. Health, P.E. and Recreation Industrial Education Student help victim of mid- ctober flood "It was amazing. The students worked all day for a week, and still came back at night to stay caught up in their classes,', said Jerry Drennan, professor of industrial education, describing the actions of the in- dustrial education students when flood waters swept through part of Abilene in October. During the flood, most of the students helped Martha Mosier, associate professor of business education and the widow of the late Bert Mosier, a former industrial education professor. Mosier, who had served as head of the industrial education department from 1965 until 1967, died July 2, 1981. Because the Mosier home was filled with water during the flood, Drennan and Bill Nabers and Louis Vesel, two new full-time industrial education instructors, organized student volunteer work for the Mosier home. The instructors took in- dustrial education classes from ACU to help Mrs. Mosier move things out of her house and dry and clean the house. Drennan said Mrs. Mosier's house was crowded with students helping, so other students assisted several elderly people on the block who had no one to help them. They put on dirty clothes and old shoes and shoveled mud, hauled trash, moved furniture, washed and cleaned, Drennan said. "Our students didn't seem to mind," said Nabers. "It was hard work but they knew they were helping somebody and en- joyed the feeling." Service projects were nothing new to the industrial education department, which had 85 majors enrolled this year. It spon- sored the Eta chapter of Sigma Tau Ep- silon, a national organization for students in the related fields of science, technology and education. The Eta chapter sponsored a tour during the fall through the General Dynamics plant in Fort Worth and the General Motors plant in Arlington. The tour was planned to help students appreciate the im- portance of technology in an industrial economy. The club also sponsored the West Cen- tral Texas Industrial Arts Regional Youth Conference in the spring. The conference 168 Industrial Education attracted students from 26 counties to compete in University Interscholastic League contests. This regional conference is the oldest in Texas. Drennan said the students organ- ized the conference and worked with the high school students while they were on the campus. Outstanding service awards were presented during Homecoming by Sigma Tau Epsilon to ACU alumni Dr. William H. Dennis, professor of industrial technology and education at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, and David L. Woods, gas field measurement engineer for the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. The organization selected Cleve Cullers of Abilene to receive honorary member- ship into the Eta chapter. Cullers was the president of his own property tax service and specialized in serving energy com- panies and oil operators. He was also a member of the ACU Advisory Board. Nine members of Sigma Tau Epsilon at- tended the Texas Industrial Arts Associa- tion statewide conference in February at Texas ASLM University, and three from ACU were honored. The Outstanding Student Award was given to Suzannah Graham, a senior from Kingwood. Paul Gacke, a graduate student from Abilene, was named to Who's Who in Industrial Education. James Payne, one of three part-time in- structors hired this year, was given an award for 41 years of teaching experience, 25 of which were in the Abilene community.

Yes, computer programming entered the nation's sports arena. And yes, ACU hada team. ACU's Association for Computing Machinery programming team won the ACM South-Central Regional Programm- ing Contest in Arlington. The four- member team then advanced to the na- tional competition in Indianapolis at ACM's annual winter meeting. However, the team failed to place at nationals. Cary Gray, team captain and senior math major from Abilene, explained how computer programming teams competed. "Each team is given six problems to solve by programming with FORTRAN," he said. "The objective is to solve as many of the problems as possible within the time limit. The team to solve the most problems in the shortest time is the winner." Computer programming may not have seemed like a strenuous sport to some, but Gray said the competition was intense. "It's funny when the competitors are serv- ed lunch at the terminalsg sometimes nobody will stop to eat.', The meets usually lasted about four hours, he said. Competition in those four-hour meets usually was of very high caliber, Gray said. Before 1977 ACU had to compete in Divi- sion II of the ACM competition because the school had no graduate program it computer science. In 1977 the rules were changed an- schools were allowed to compete i whichever division schools thought woul- be the most competitive for their teams ACU immediately transferred to Divisio I and has placed in either regional or na tional meets since 1975.

L'There's not a lot we can do," said Gray. "Of course if we knew what the problems were going to be, it would help. Mainly we just learn from our computer courses. Also, several of the team members have jobs as pro-grammersf' The interest in computer programming competition indicated the interest in the entire computer science field. Recognizing that interest, plans were made in the spring for computer science to be sep- arated from the math department June 1. Dr. Perry Reeves, dean of the College of Natural and Applied Sciences, said, "Computer science is such a rapidly- advancing discipline we felt it should have a department of its own." Also, a B.S. degree in applied mathematics was approved to keep pace with the thrust toward practical applica- tion of math in the business world. Dr. David Hughes, chairman of the mathematics department, said the degree would "give our students a little more flex- ibility in their specific programs and better prepare them forjob opportunities." A B.S. in computer science, with an em- phasis in general computing systems, soft- ware or scientific computing, was approv- ed to replace the general computer science degree. Reeves said the change would allow students to tailor their degrees to the field they wanted to enter. Math X Computer Science Physics vey goes He wasn't an actor, but he was known for dressing up like Galileo. He wasn't an astronaut, but he used to build rockets with students and fire them off from the parking lot. He wasn't a pioneer, but he sometimes led small caravans to Callahan County and spent the night observing stars. He wasn't a former assistant coach to the Dallas Cowboys, but he organized touch football games between his astronomy class and anyone who would play them. He was Dr. Charles Ivey, chair- man of the physics department for IO years. Ivey resigned his post to further his career in research and development ap- plications in industry by taking a vice presidential position with La.Iet Geophysical, an Abilene based oil firm. Ivey said leaving teaching was one of the hardest decisions he had ever made but L.V: - L..k: iiiiii e . - .X - f,3f,,s..s, -sl' ses to ork in indu tr that it was time for him to move on and let the physics department try some new ideas. When Ivey came to ACU I2 years ago, his goal was to establish a physics program and department. He did so with the help of Dr. Edward Brown, Dean Emeritus Walter H. Adams, and Dr. B. J. Humble. Besides being head of the department, Ivey taught a non-majors astronomy class. Almost every semester he would come to one of his astronomy classes dressed as Galileo and tell of the Ita1ian's life as though it were his own. Before leaving ACU in December, Ivey already had begun plans to enlarge the physics department to include a degree in engineering geology. Dr. Paul Schulze, who had served in the physics department for ll years, took Ivey's place as chairman. Schulze said he planned no dramatic changes in thi department, but would continue thi development of a geology degree. An increased demand for geologist came from the private business sector ii this area, primarily the oil business. Mucl of the funding to set up the new degree hat come from that same sector, Schulze said. Schulze said that if a freshman came t- ACU in the fall of 1982 he could graduat with a geology degree in four years. The physics department expanded it research efforts as well as its degre offerings. Dr. Mike Sadler, assistant professor o physics, Mark Tate and Mike Ballard seniors, and Steve Shaffer, junior, dit analysis work at Los Alamos Nationa Laboratory. Sadler said their work wa believed to be the most accurate data to b found on pion-nucleon reactions. sf ff X 1 5-' 172 Physics ""'hs., Schulze fills chairman' role I vw 25" is ,I JN.. ir -...ff FRONT ROW - Michael Sadler.

The resulting nuclear force is the strongest in nature and the force that keeps nuclei together. Shaffer said the "on hands" experience was the most practical part of the research for the students, but there were other benefits also. "A research team from UCLA was doing research the same time we were," Shaffer said. "And it was an ex- cellent opportunity to make contacts for graduate school. We were the only undergraduate students doing research at the facility." Ballard said he was impressed with the abundance of high technology machinery in the government-funded lab, including three-dimensional monitors and data- acquisition systems. "It makes you feel somewhat important to get to work in a place like that," Ballard said. "Then too, it makes you feel dumb with all this equip- ment around, and you realize what you donit know."

"There are three main factors -the students, the fellow faculty and the CChristianD purpose of the school," Hance replied. Dr. Hance, known to most as "Cotton," has been with ACU since 1970. He has stayed because he had a preference for, and a commitment to, ACU's Christian perspective that he said overshadows and permeates the academic purpose. "There's a sense of communityf, Hance observed. ACU students donit have uthat selfish, looking out for No. I" attitude, he explained. "They're nice people." ACU chemistry faculty members are also superior to those at other institutions, he said. "They,re as neat a group of men as you can work with. Very considerate, helpful and understanding. There's a sense of mutual help rather than competitionf' Dr. Hance was dedicated to education and en- joyed teaching. And he said the university lifestyle afforded him opportunities that industry could not. "I like new startsf' he said of the opportunity to begin each semester anew, with new students. "If a semester isnit going well, you know it will soon be over." He also said he appreciated the freedom of mak- ing his own research decisions. "In industry," Hance said, "there is a pressure that preselects what pro- blem is to be researched - there is no freedom of choice." In talking about his research endeavors, he was modest about taking all the credit for his ac- complishments. He pointed to a picture in his office of a man in a white lab coat standing in front of some electronic equipment. "That,s Isidore Amdurf' he said, giving Amdur credit for the assistance he gave Hance during his research as a graduate student. He ran his finger down a long list of publications. "These are some of the things I've had published. And the important thing to note is how many other names are on heref, he explained, indicating that research is not a one-man job. He pointed to the names on the covers of some of his publications. "You can't tell the PHD's from the undergraduates. That's what's so great," he said. "If you work on something, your name goes on it. That's the policy heref, Hance was sold on the helpful, understanding at- titude of ACU faculty and his attitude reflected those same characteristics. Trying to explain in layman's terms his research project for 1982 involving the catalytic activity of the element rhenium, he struggled for simple terms with which to explain it more clearly. "It falls within the area of surface chemistry," he said. "And it deals with various electron spec- troscopic techniques." Unsatisfied at his attempt to explain, he ran into another room and returned with a 16-page research proposal detailing the project. After a brief explana- tion of the proposal, he asked Eric Hardegree, a graduate student of chemistry, to explain the techni- que and show the equipment used in the research. Hardegree said, "He's very willing to answer questions." As a teacher, Hardegree said Hance was thorough as well as interesting. "His tests are difficult, but informative," he said. "You learn from themf, "Dr, Hance has a good sense of humor and the helpful attitude that he finds so unique in his col- leagues," he said. W Lucy Hererra Opposite page: Dr. Robert L.

College of Professional Studies 177 Communication rama productions increase More this year than ever before, a number of ACU students were pretending to be something they weren't. The increase in false pretenses was the result of an increase in drama productions, which more than doubled. Seven productions were staged, as com- pared to the three usually performed in years past - the Homecoming musical, a comedy Dinner Theatre and a classic play. One reason for the expansion was the formation of the Repertory Company, said Lewis Fulks, director of the drama divi- sion. The Repertory Company established a core group of actors committed to theater at ACU. Twenty-eight ACU students, as well as 33 faculty members, alumni and individuals from the Abilene community, joined the Repertory Company. In forming the Repertory Company, said Fulks, "we said to our audience that this theater belongs not only to the present generation but to older generations as well." He stressed that this did not take ac- ting parts away from students but actually created more because of the increase in the number of productions. Besides the increase in drama produc- tions, the communication department ex- perienced a number of changes in faculty during the year. Dr. Ed Enzor, chairman of the com- munication department, announced that he would take a two-year leave of absence. He requested the leave so that he might . 5- A ,ww ,EN .

Enzor had served as chairman of the communication department since June 1980. Dr. Carley Dodd joined the communica- tion faculty as associate professor and director of the oral communication division. Four other faculty members also were added to the mass communication division. Dave Spiceland, assistant professor, directed the broadcast news sequence and served as adviser for KACU, the campus radio station. Cindy Stocking, instructor, taught courses in news, feature writing and copy editing. She also was the adviser for the Prickly Pear yearbook. Dana Robinson, assistant instructor, taught courses in news, magazine produc- tion and advertising. A part-time instructor, Merlin Mann, taught secondary journalism. Besides his work at ACU, Mann also was yearbook and newspaper adviser for Abilene Chris- tian High School. Academic offerings increased with the addition of the religious communication master's degree. The interdepartmental degree required 18 hours of Bible and 18 hours of communication courses. The degree plan required majors to select a communication specialization in television-radio, organizational com- munication, journalism or preaching. For the second year, an ACU studen won a national editorial writing contes sponsored by the Laymenis National Biblt Committee.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that in February the education department ob- tained 14 mini-computers for its use. The computers, TRS-80 Model l's, were given to the university by the Tandy Corp., parent company of Radio Shack, with the provision that all education majors graduating from ACU be trained on them, said Dr. C.G. Gray, dean of the College of Business and Professional Studies. Tandy's loan of the computers could be renewed each year, said Dr. Juanita Av- inger, professor of education. She said the department was very pleased with the agreement for the use of the computers, which was worked out by Gray. The education department would not have been able to afford computers without such an arrangement, Dr. Avinger said. Computer-assisted instruction utilizing the new mini-computers included practice and drills in mathematics, reading and simulation exercises. Also, a day-long workshop in the sum- mer gave public school teachers and grauate students a chance to familiarize themselves with the computers. l80 Education Dr. Avinger said that in the Abilene area all of the elementary and secondary schools used computers for instruction, in- cluding Abilene Christian High School and Elementary School, which had two computers each. In addition to working to give education majors experience with all of the latest teaching tools, ACU helped potential teachers locate jobs. A job fair in March attracted personnel directors from 22 public school districts in Texas. They con- ducted interviews and gave students infor- mation about salaries and job opportunities. , Clint Howeth, director of placement, said, "There is a real need for teachers in the state of Texas. And with this job fair the students will not have to travel all over the state to find a job." Howeth said the job fair gave graduating seniors a head start in job hunting. A few changes were made in the educa- tion faculty during the year. Pam Money joined the department as a part-time in- structor and supervisor of student teachers. And Dr. Orval Filbeck retired at the end of the school year after 37 years with ACU, including 14 as chairman of the education department. Filbeck's colleague, professor Harold Wilkinson, called F ilbeck "one of the most dedicated faculty members ACU has ever had." A surprise dinner in Filbeckls honor was given in March. In October six members of the education faculty attended the Annual Conference ol Teachers in Dallas sponsored by the Texas Education Agency. Dr. Chantrey Fritts, chairman of the department, served on a conference panel for chairmen of educa- tion departments. Also, Fritts, Dr. Herschel Avinger, pro- fessor, and Dr. Dale Tacker, associate pro- fessor, helped lead round-table discussion groups among professors and public school administrators and teachers.

Instead, most ACU home ec majors :hose the discipline to prepare for a career, Kelly said. She attributed the emphasis on career partly to economic necessity. "Students some out of high school having been pretty well alerted to the fact that families will iced two incomes," she said. Home ec majors could choose a degree, ind thus a career, in fashion merchandis- ng, home economics education, interior iesign, or foods, nutrition and dietetics.

Kelly said about 40 students majored in the program. Also new were two courses for students who were not majoring in home ec. In- dependent Living, taught by Pat Varner, was created to help students who lived in apartments for the first time. Gail Crabtree, a senior accounting ma- jor, said she took Independent Living thinking "it might be a blow-off class, but I really learned a lot." She said she benefitted most from the sections on plan- ning a household budget and renting apartments. Gail also took Clothing for Non-majors, a new course taught by Judy Reeves, part- time instructor. About 35 women took the clothing class. "I loved the class," said Carla Ander- son, junior elementary education major. "I went in there and did not know a thing about sewing. Now I feel like I could put something togetherf' Although the classes were designed for non-majors, Kelly said, "everyone can benefit from these courses that cover the daily life things . . .. If we can approach these things with a little more information and knowledge, the better off we are." Kelly also said the department wanted to dispel the image that the discipline was "just cooking and sewing." She explained that home ec involves information from psychology, sociology, biology, chemistry and art, and puts that information together "into one synthesized area and looks at the TRONT ROW - Pat Varner, Judy Reeves, Wanda Montgomery, Lynette Vance.

"Home economics is not just stichin' and stewin,," Kay said, "So many people think itis an easy major, "but it's notf, The senior, who served as president of Sigma Tau Alpha, home ec club, said she was very proud of home ec majors. "They want to increase hope and decrease pover- ty, increase happiness and decrease all the negative things in our world," she explained. Kay finished her term as treasurer of the Texas Home Economics Student Section of the state home economics association in November. Also in November she received the Texas Home Economist of the Year award. Since 1975 at least one ACU home ec major has been elected to a THESS office. Kim Adams, a sophomore from Topeka, Kan., continued that tradition when she was chosen to run for a national office in July. The department's biggest weakness, Kelly said, was the lack of research done by faculty members. "We need desperately to be involved in more,', she said. Although Kelly focused on problems in the department, Jeanette Sessions, junior fashion merchandising major from Yakima, Wash., emphasized the profes- sionalism she found after transferring here. She said she found more emphasis on business and career training and less "Suzy Homemaker stuff." fn. Home Economics 8 3 Psychology Senior pr Much of psychology majors' classroom learning and out-of-class study found a practical application in students' special projects. A special project was required of every senior psychology major. A project involved l50 hours of work in a mental health field, a written record of activities and observations, and a 35-page report. "It gives students the opportunity to work with people and determine whether they want to pursue a career in a certain field of psychology," said Dr. Luther Marsh, professor of psychology and coor- dinator of seniors' special projects. Students who did a senior project had a variety of mental health facilities in the Abilene area where they could work. The students worked as assistants andfor observers. Sometimes they were paid for their workg sometimes they were not. "Fortunately, I got paid," said Kent Mercer, a graduate student now living in Abilene. He worked at the Abilene Youth Center, a residential facility for emotional- ly disturbed adolescent boys. Mercer spent some time in direct obser- vation, but he also worked closely with residents of the facility. "A treatment team would study a certain person's pro- blems and make suggestions for treatments. I would then implement their suggestions," he said. "The whole ex- perience was quite rewarding." if 184 Psychology ojects appl tudies Mercer said his experiences helped him decide to do graduate work. "We spend so much time in the classroom with theory and so little in ap- plication," Mercer said. "The primary benefit from my senior project was ac- quainting me with the real world." Marybeth Perkins, a secondary psychology major from Dallas, dealt with a slightly smaller world when she did her senior project at the Rainbow School of the University Church of Christ. "Freud said your personality is determined by the time you are five years old. I began to see some truth in that as I observed and worked with the children," she said. The Rainbow School personnel taught children from 6 months to kindergarten age. Perkins said she was able to get a good idea of what most of the children, especial- ly the older children, would be like later in life by watching their interactions. "I could tell what children would pro- bably be outgoing and which ones would be the clowns, and I could spot the more reserved children, too," she said. "lt was also interesting to watch when the parents came to pick up their children. The in- teraction between the kids and their parents - most of the time, the mother - gave me a lot of insight to the child's personality." Perkins said her special project served its purpose, which was "to help you decide . , .... ,-..,.az-.r-aan if you really want to do what you've been studying to do for the last three years. Well, I still want to work with children? Dr. Clyde Austin, former special pro- jects coordinator, continued his research on the reverse culture shock of mis- sionaries who return from foreign fields. He presented reports on his work at the 25th annual Bible Lectureship at North- eastern Christian Junior College in Villanova, Pa., Michigan Christian Col- lege's Institute for International Studies and the seventh annual Mission Teacher's Workshop in Dallas. Marsh, special projects coordinator, at- tended the annual American Psychological Association Pre-Convention Workshop in Los Angeles, part of the APA's 89th an- nual convention.

During the week in Washington the students attended a conference sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services. The topic dealt with how local agencies are affected by federal agency regulation and President Reagan's new federalism. They also attended sessions of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and toured the White House, the FBI building and many of the capital's monuments. Maiden said U.S. Rep. Charles Stenholm arranged a number of the group's activities, including the White House tour and attendance at the House session. Sen. John Tower secured passes for the group's attendance at the Senate session, Maiden said. Students from the social work depart- ment also were involved in projects closer to home. Seven students enrolled in the Social Work Practice 1 class screened needy families in the Abilene area for the Goodfellows, annual Christmas project. The students worked in pairs, visiting families whose names had been sent to Goodfellows and compiling reports about the families. Each pair interviewed 12-16 Abilene families, using a set of guidelines so that the information they gathered would be uniform. Goodfellows gave toys, clothing and food to needy families in the Abilene area. The donations they received to fund the annual project restricted the number of families they could assist, so the screening by social work students made sure the most needy families were served. Bill Culp, associate professor and teacher of the class, said ACU became in- volved in the program three years ago when the Volunteer Clearing House called him. Practice 1, a junior level class, provided many students with their first "hands oni' experience in social work, Culp said. "Most of the students make their first ac- tual contacts with families and agencies in the community through the Practice 1 class," he said. Students in 'Social Work Practice 1 assisted other agencies, including Big Brothersf Big Sisters, the West Texas Rehabilitation Center and Abilene State School, Culp said. The department also continued to seek accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education. In the fall, the council notified Culp, who also was program direc- tor of the department, that a two-member team would come to ACU during the spring semester to do an in-depth research of the department. Accreditation by the council would allow ACU social work graduates to delete 30 hours from a 60-hour master's degree program in schools with advanced standing. Social Workf Sociology 187 Library ihrarian finish CCLI volume Some students thought of the library as a refuge or a place to visit with friends, but the library was far more. Special collec- tions, exhibits and personal work with students kept the librarians busy. One of the most important projects the librarians were involved in was compiling the third volume of the Christian College Librarians Index LCCLIJ, which indexes books and periodicals from Christian colleges. Marsha Harper, co-editor of the CCLI, said the librarians completed the volume for the Christian College Librarians Con- ference that took place during ACU's Na- tional Christian Education Conference in the summer. The index listed articles from 22 periodicals plus numerous books. Five ACU Lectureship books were listed in the index and the library staff planned to con- tinue to include all Lectureship books in the future. The librarians were in their seventh year of indexing for the CCLI, but only two three-year volumes had been published. information was compiled by ACU librarians and also by librarians from other Christian schools, including Oklahoma Christian College, Harding University and Pepperdine. The data was compiled in the computer center. Harper said they hoped to acquire a separate computer and printer to be used exclusively by the library for the index. The special exhibits displayed monthly were another important aspect of the library, Harper said. The exhibits included a display of NASA materials on Saturng a special ex- 9 hibit on "The Gold of El Dorado," ir cluding displays and programs featurin slides and filmsg a small Christmas displaj an exhibit of origami by Simon Chow, black history exhibit, a special Lectureshi exhibit on the history of missions worl wood carvings by R.L. Robertsg and special exhibit on "The Making of Book," including programs and exhibits.

Head librarian Kenneth Roach said the shelving more than doubled the library's archive capacity. The shelving consisted of roll-out units that saved space and eliminated the need for building expansion. Records stored in these units included the oral history collection of the late Lawrence Smith, former treasurer of ACU, papers of past university presidentsg the Herald of Truth archivesg and other ar- chival materials. The archives were not available to everyone, but were used for research through special arrangements with the librarians.

Library Children's literature -- not for children onl "Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after." Nursery rhymes, nonsense verses, poetry and limericks were not the usual subjects discussed in English classes at ACU, but to Wilma Marshall and her students in Literature for Children and Transi- tional Reading they were a familiar topic. Mrs. Marshall, an assistant professor of English, taught students how to teach literature to children, and her approach to the subject was unique. Assignments for the class varied from designing a cover for a children's book to reading a favorite childhood story to the class. And an unsuspecting student might have been surprised as she recited nursery rhymes, nonsense verses and poetry with ease. Her excitement was ob- vious as she introduced subjects like Zeus and the gods or the work of Maurice Sendak, a popular children's author and illustrator. And students realized she was fond of the topic. Throughout the course she often said, "You've got to understand why childrenis literature is impor- tant and where its origins lie if you,re going to teach the subjectf, She said it was important to understand children and the ways that literature could work for them. Mrs. Marshall received her undergraduate degree from ACU and has done graduate and postgraduate work at several universities in Texas and one in Kan- sas. Although her degree was in English, she did part of her graduate work solely on the subject of children's literature. She said children's literature sometimes is misunderstood. 'gSome people don't take literature for children seriously because they feel they have outgrown the subjectf' she said. S'And they must understand there are differences between literature for children and literature for adults." She also said that once students were aware of those differences, they could begin to appreciate the value of children's literature. The class was interesting, not only because of the subject material, but because of Mrs. Marshall's class presentations, her sense of humor and her en- l90 Faculty Feature joyment of the topic. It was not unusual to spend the entire class period reading childrenis books and then talking about which was the favorite and why. Her collection of children's books was extensive, and she often brought with her carts of books from her personal collection so members of the class could look through the books and become familiar with the authors and artists and their individual trademarks. In most of the class lectures, Mrs. Marshall em- phasized the importance of knowing where the nursery rhymes and poetry originated, and for what purpose they were introduced into the existing society. For example, some of the most popular nursery rhymes that originated in England were composed for adult audiences and had two meanings - one for the adults of that time-period and one for todayis children. She also said that some of the favorite pieces of literature for children had political over- tones during their time period. She spent several class periods talking about a trip to Europe where she was able to visit many of the countries where much of the literature for children has come from. And she had a slide presentation ac- companying each lecture, although she laughingly prefaced each presentation with an apology for her photographic abilities. Mrs. Marshall went on the tour with a chi1dren's literature group during the summer of 1980. It was a month-long study tour arranged by a professor from Fort Hayes State University in Kansas. The tour included stops in 77 cities throughout countries such as Luxembourg, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, England and Iceland, she said. "The trip was one of the most outstanding things of my life other than my marriage and family, of coursef' she said. "It was a frightening experience at the beginning of the tour because I did not know anyone in the group. I was the Texas girl who had never been past California or Illinois." - Suzetta Nutt Opposite page: Wilma M arshall W mmm ff" - in QW, Faculty Feature - 191 XO mf aww ef . ij . ...f .XP fs' A' .

Soy music played on the stere as a light tap was hear at the door. "Bouquet de livery," said th voice at the door. "Flowers!" she ex claimed, as she opene the door. "Oh yo shouldn't have!" He didn't. Instead a clown-clad figui bounced in the room with a non-flows arrangement - Abilene's latest gi craze - the balloon bouquet. The colorful, helium-filled balloons fashior ed into ribbon-trimmed bouquets offered a alternative to traditional flower arrangement Throughout the nation it became not onl popular, but chic to send a balloon bouquet. Birthdays, anniversaries, births and promotions were all occasior that merited a visit by a balloon-bearing clown. "The smiles I got were the best part of the job," said Deneani Morgan, a former clown for Balloon Bouquet at 140 Grape. "I wan to do all I can to make people smile - it's a kind of service." Deneane, a former ACU student, delivered balloon bouquets dur ing the fall semester and said she loved it. She returned home to Amarillo during the spring semester, bu said she planned to come back to school next year and pull on th old clown suit again. "If my boss will have me, I would love to have that job again, she said. Her boss was Ed Clark, the owner of the operation. Denean said he made the job easy for her because it was fun, and h allowed her to work the hours she wanted to. Edith Pierce, an employee of Balloon Bouquet, sai ouquets bur t on the scene Slark got the idea to begin a business like Balloon Bouquet from his sister who owned and operated a similar store in Lubbock. "The funny thing is that now he has a shop in Lub- oock, too, in competition with his sisterj' she added. Clark had a shop in Albany, too, and the clowns delivered their unique bouquets just about everywhere ,n the Abilene area, Edith said. The bouquets were available in large and small sizes. The large arrangement had 18 balloons, and the small bouquet included 12 balloons. One of the most oopular arrangements was a Bust-a-Gram, which in- :luded eight balloons, with a message inside the largest bouquets. Grace Dewberry, instructor of business at ACU, received a bouquet from her fiance while she was teaching an economics class. "I kind of knew it was coming, but I was still really embarrassedf, she said. "The bouquet was huge, and I let class out early so I could carry it down the hallwayf' Deneane delivered bouquets to children's birthday parties as well as parties for adults. "The children were usually responsive, but there were a few who would burst into tears when they saw me," Deneane said. "They were actually scared of melu oalloon. The clowns, mainly women, bould sing, dance and give a kiss for :he price of the Jouquet. Deneane said the clowns nust be unin- nibited, and she Jsually was asked Lo sing to or kiss Lhe honoree on the :heek or whatever was requested - 'within reason, of :ourse." From birthdays to bosses, Bozo-li ke bearers bring bright baables - Balloon Bouquets j Delivering bou- quets to sick people or the hospital pro- vided the most en- joyable trips for Deneane. "One day I was delivering a bouquet at the hospital," she explained wand as I was leaving, an old lady who saw me all dressed, called out to me from her bed. "I asked how she was and if I could do anything for her. For one delivery Deneane had to go to a party at the Veterans Club. She was told to sign in at the door Jefore she delivered the bouquet to the 50-year-old recipient. "I was a little nervous about that because there was a lot of drinking and dancing going on inside,', she said with a laugh. My first thought was of me getting kicked out of schoollv But she delivered the balloons and escaped without a scratch. Parties weren't the only places clowns took balloon And she told me she was so excited to see me and that sheld like a balloon, toof, So the next day Deneane took her some individual balloons. She continued taking balloons almost every- day to the 80-year-old woman until she was released from the hospital. nIt's a great service for me to be able to make people smile when I take the balloons because it's a way of do- ing something for others," she said. "And in the world today there just aren't enough smiles to go around." - Barbie Shelton Balloon Bouquet 197 .wa -:Juv-W MW...

They awakened citizens and warned them of flooding caused by heavy rains that began the night before. But in their wet, pre-dawn march from door to door, officials passed by the small house at 1218 Monroe that had been unoccupied during the summer. Fortunately for the two ACU students living at 1218 Monroe, their neighbor, Stephan Touchstone, senior mass com- munication major, thought to warn them when firemen awakened him about 3:30 a.m. Donna Monteleone, sophomore ac- counting and computer science major from Raritan, NJ., and Lisa Britt, junior physical education major from Kuwait City, Kuwait, thought Steve was playing a practical joke, Donna said. When he final- ly convinced them that the flooding was serious, they left their home in water that was Hup to our headlights," Donna said. Flood 199 Cleanup effort bring About seven hours later the students returned. "We went through the alley and the back yardf' Donna said. "You didn't realize how deep the water was, because you didn't remember how low the ground was. As we got to the door, the water was close to our chests." "We were -under the impression that it wouldn't go into our house," she said. "I guess because we didn't want it to." When Donna and Lisa looked through their kitchen windows, Donna said they saw water two and a half feet deep, toppled furnishings and mud everywhere. "Then when we opened the door," she said, "makeup, shoes and everything floated out." The students' experience was one varia- tion of a tale told throughout the city by occupants of the 356 residences damaged by the Columbus Day Hood. Final damage estimates were S3 million to S5 million in losses to individuals and 51.6 million to the city, according to the Abilene Reporter-News. President Reagan eventually declared Taylor County and six other Texas counties disaster areas because of the heavy flooding. After extreme flooding in 1974 city of- ficials conducted a flood plain study and drew a "l00-year flood map,', which was a projection of flooding that would occur in a storm so bad it would happen only once a century. The Columbus Day flood almost reached the 100- year flood mark along Buttonwillow Creek in the Fair- way Oaks area and along Cedar Creek i n s o u t h e a s t Abilene. Cedar Creek also damaged many homes at the foot of the ACU Hill on College Drive. The deluge of muddy water was followed by a surge of community spirit and helpfulness. Sportsmen's boats, Air Force equipment and city buses were used to evacuate residents and take them to nine shelters set up in the city, including one in ACU's Bennett Gymnasium. Church members, Boy Scouts, students, city employees, Dyess Air Force Base person- nel and many others worked in the evacua- tion and cleanup. P. H. Hill, who directed aid efforts for University Church of Christ, estimated that several thousand Abilenians aided flood victims in some way. He added that the "best and greatest work was done not "Just knowing some to stop and help through any organized work at all, just people and neighbors wanting to help." Charles Ramsey, an ACU junior in- dustrial education major, was one such neighbor. Charles lived on Cedar Creek's bank at 401 College in, as he said, "the lit- tle white house that moved." The junior said he left his home after a neighbor woke him about 3 a.m. Later he helped evacuate people. "We rescued the CDr. Edwinj Headricks and a 95 year-old woman, her daughter who was in her 70,s and their four pets." 200 Flood Jan- . -nm ..

But, Charles said, the ost important thing he gained from the nod was a deep friendship with Tom suse, senior from Albuquerque, N.M. In ct after the flood, he moved in with Tom. lut I'm still in the flood zone," he added. Charles and about 40 other industrial ucation majors were dismissed from wet carpets, move furniture outside, shovel out mud and try to pick up the pieces after the flood. "I didn't believe how heavy soaked mat- tresses could bef' said Stephen Bynum, sophomore pre-Optometry major, who worked several days in the flood cleanup. He said he and his twin brother, David, drove their pickup through the flooded area, looking "for older people and places that didn't have lots of cars around." The Bynum brothers helped by hauling ruined possessions to the dump. "People were throwing out little treasures in life that meant so muckh to them," he said. "Just knowing someone cared enough to stop and help made it easier for them." Long-time Abilene residents lost much more than did students living in the flood- ed area. As ACU graduate Leallen Smith, who shared a house with ACU students, told an Optimist reporter, "I feel it's really sad that this happened to us, but what is even sadder is that our next door neighbors lost a whole lot more than we did e their home, everything they ownedf' In spite of the millions of dollars of damage, no serious injuries were reported or lives lost.

"Once I got in the tree, I caught my breath and wondered how in the world I got out there," he said about six months later. Although Courtney said he 'gfelt fairly relaxed considering the situationf, the ris- ing waters began to make him nervous. "I was as high in that tree as I could go," he explained.

Courtney said the small crowd that had gathered on College Drive during the rescue efforts lent him moral support. "I felt like they wouldnit let anything bad happen to me," he said. Courtney heard several jokes about be- ing waterlogged and going tree surfing after his flood experience. But he said the flood also brought him some serious thoughts. "I'm more appreciative of my health now . . . I also learned that I don't always get my wayj' he said. "And that not everything that happens to me is going to be good." But the best thing coming out of the flood, Courtney said, was the support and help from friends. His reaction seemed parallel to that of many others who were affected by the flood - being alive and having good friends were more important than losing possessions. h- Kelly Deatherage Flood 203 M , L ' :iq IM -4 '-F? 49?

'md wh' W W ulture in the country ll n the middle 1890s Buffalo Gap boasted a few industries that have vanished as the little village dwindled in population and importancef, a Buffalo Gap resident said in a 1961 interview with the Abilene Reporter-News. And although in 1982 the sleepy, little town had not totally regained its late 19th century prominence, the quiet community was an important cultural and historical site of Taylor County. The town is located in a natural pass in the Callahan Divide in east Taylor Coun- ty, and received its name from the herds of buffalo that migrated through the settle- ment in the early 1870s. . ln a historical account about the development of Buffalo Gap, visitors to the small community said they recalled seeing stacks of buffalo hides piled 20 feet high in the streets, as hunters took their toll on the herds that once roamed the plains. y 1880, Buffalo Gap had 1,200 citizens and had become the seat of Taylor County. The only county building was a two-story jail constructed of native stone blocks mortised together with can- nonballs from Civil War battlefields. The jail still stands and houses a historic museum. In 1881, Abilene sprang up to the north Opposite page: top - Autumn foliage often lured students and Abilene residents to Buffalo Gap and Abilene State Park for a country outing: left - An old wagon outside the Buffalo Gap Museum is one of thefew antiques that reminds visitors ofa simpler lifestyleg right - The Forts Trail Country Store, located on one of Buffalo Gap's main streets, isjlled with antiques, collectibles and an old fashioned candy counter. long the Texas and Pacific Railroad. By 1883, Abilene had enough people and spirit to petition for an election to move the county seat from Buffalo Gap to Abilene. When the county commissioners and the judge chose Abilene, the judge was quickly rushed home to find that all of his chickens had been killed and eaten by an angry group of Buffalo Gap men. here was a brief revival in Buffalo Gap's growth in 1909 when the Santa Fe Railroad came, but the town never regained its former glory. The town re- mained a sleepy village until another sen- sational election in 1965, when the citizens voted 76 to 75 to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in Buffalo Gap. 1982 brought several economic changes to the country-casual community. Although Buffalo Gap had long been a favorite Saturday or Sunday afternoon spot for ACU students, in October the town became a favorite place for shoppers when a "cluster of unique shops under the oaks" opened. Mulberry Street Market, a quaint shop- ping village located in the heart of Buffalo Gap, brought a face-lift to a tired section of the town. The shopping village was the brainchild of Doris Henderson and her family. The property that the Mulberry Street shops were located on adjoined Mrs. Henderson's property where her home was built. In an interview with the Reporter-News Mrs. Henderson said she was determined that not one of the 86 live oak trees on the property would be cut down, and she "practically stood in front of those trees" when the work crews arrived to begin construction. ulberry Street Market housed several shops: E. Louise, a dress shopg Carpenter's Mercantile Exchange, Francesca's Beauty Shopg Little Mountain Art Galleryg Durham's, a gift shopg the Collector's Doll Houseg and the Gourmet Shop. Mitzi Henderson, daughter of creator Doris Henderson and owner of E. Louise dress shop, said in a Reporter-News inter- view, "We're all family out here. Everybody looks after everybody else, and we help each other out when one of us has to be away for a few minutes." he Gourmet Shop, managed by another of Mrs. Henderson's daughters, was a popular place for Buffalo Gap shoppers. The casual, stick-to-the-ribs fare was popular after a day of shopping. And ice cream lovers were delighted to find out that the Gourmet shop offered Blue Bell ice cream, which was unavailable in Abilene. The monthly flea markets, the Blue Grass Festival and the Buffalo Gap Art Festival were a few of the events that at- tracted visitors to the community. And the picnic grounds in the town and at Abilene State Park, which was several miles out- side of Buffalo Gap, attracted many visitors during the year. Despite the additions and changes to the community throughout the year, Buffalo Gap is a town proud of its heritage and history with people who have tried to preserve their country-casual roots. Buffalo Gap SSSSSSSSS SSS SS SSS S SSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSS ow the proposed budget cut: A loud chorus of protest went up from parents, students and college ad- ministrators during the spring semester as the Reagan administration announced its fiscal 1983 budget, which included chopp- ing a hefty 25 percent from federally fund- ed financial aid programs to students and universities. But despite the cutbacks, ACU and the other Abilene colleges expected less of an impact than many other colleges across the country. Administrators from the local schools anticipated help to offset the federal aid cuts from scheduled increases in the state-supported Texas Equalization Grant aid program. Jerry Mullins, ACU athletic business manager and former director of financial aid, said that he expected ACU to feel some impact from the loss of federal funds but that the actual effect wouldn't be known until the 1982-83 school year had begun. He predicted that "a few less loans will be made and grants will be harder to qualify for, but no real change will occur in the College Work-Study program at ACU." Just how much the various federal aid 206 Reaganomics programs would be cut would vary from school to school. Even though Reagan had proposed an approximate 25 percent slash in financial aid, that didn't mean all schools would have their financial aid allocation reduced by 25 percent. One college might experience a 40 per- cent decrease in aid funds while another might only have 10 percent of its funds cut. Corky Swanson, director of financial aid at McMurry College, said a complex for- mula that included enrollment, student need and many other factors was taken in- to consideration in determining how much a particular school's aid is cut. And for- tunately, it looked like Abilene's colleges stood to lose less than most other colleges. As far as McMurry students were con- cerned, Swanson predicted that about 90 percent of its students who received finan- cial aid would not be affected at all by the federal cutbacks. During the 1981-82 school year, the federal government gave out 511 billion in aid to more than seven million students, according to a Feb. 22, 1982, article in Time magazine. Federal programs includ ed Pell Grants, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, National Direct Stu- dent Loans, Guaranteed Student Loa and the College Work-Study program. Since Congress had not yet given its a proval to all the proposals Reagan 1 quested, it wasn't certain how much ea program would be cut to achieve an over 25 percent reduction in federal aid. Reagan proposed to slash the Pell Gre program from a budget of 52.3 billion 51.4 billion, which would lower t number of students receiving grants by percent to 1.8 million. He also wanted entirely do away with the SEOG progra end federal contributions to the ND! program, and chop 28 percent from t College Work-Study program. The largest of the federal financial z programs, Guaranteed Student Loa provided 57.7 billion to 3.5 milli students, and changes in this progrz were already in effect. As of Oct. 1, 1981, students wht families earned more than 530,000 a yt were required to demonstrate need qualify for a GSL. Before Octob anyone, regardless of income, could obt: a GSL.

But even if the GSL program did get cut, graduate students would be able to borrow under the ALAS program. And in Texas, graduate students could ob- tain loan funds through the new Hinson Hazlewood program open only to graduate students. ln additional budget cuts, Congress began phasing out Social Security educa- tional benefits, averaging 5260 a month, to college students whose parents were dead, disabled or retired. Benefits would be reduced each year by 25 percent until 1985 when they would be eliminated. Social Security benefits formerly were paid to students every month. Under the new laws, benefits were paid only eight months out of the year with payment dur- ing the summer months eliminated. Congress also voted to end Social Security payments to high school seniors after they turned 18 unless they were enrolled as full-time college students by May 1, 1981. In order to keep educational benefits averaging 52,760 a year, many seniors were forced to skip part of their senior year to enroll in community colleges and universities. Locally, Hardin-Simmons University and McMurry College conducted special courses this spring to help Abilene area high school seniors qualify as full-time col- lege students by the May 1 deadline. McMurry offered a three-week com- munication course in April that gave students full-time enrollment status. The effects of Reaganomics on the coun- try's colleges and universities will become more apparent as time goes on. Some like- ly results included individual states in- stituting state-funded aid programs, col- leges increasing tuition fees, and students and parents having to dig deeper into sav- ings to pay for college. The government insisted that most of the cuts applied to unneeded student aid. But many educators disagreed, and they feared that additional cuts would come in future years. As the figure juggling began, the coun- tryis college and university students and financial aid officers, along with other Americans, simply had to cinch their belts a little tighter as a result of Reaganomics. - Brenda Zobrist Reaganomics ng! we A A i A " AILI K E ,.:V , 1 ' .f 5 l fy l ML' ,Y A a AAAAA A , ,nag - f A -2 Lx ,V W f This page: clockwise from top right f ACU sluc1'ent's garage apartmenlp Foun- tains near Zales in the Mall of Abileneg Ambler Avenue entrance to Will Hair Parkg Newspaper vendor at Treadaway and Highway 805 Sign above Gara'ski's Lcyl. 708 Abilene i w E i bfi ii is . 5 E 5 SN. ,Qc .

Yet after students returned home for the summer or left the Key City for that first job after graduation, some Abilene sights kept :reeping back as fond memories. Who Qld ever forget the laughter over huge baskets of fries at Gardski's or the first off-campus apartment? Or the hours spent Christmas shopping at the mall and studying, with suntan lotion and cold Cokes at Will Hair? Or the fearless newspaper vendors in the traffic circle? ln the end, idiosyncrasies like these formed special memories of Abilene. Pol it ick i I1 oney and media are both growing in im- portance in the political arenas of the country, not only on the national level, but - in statewide elections as well. The Texas political scene in the spring of 1982 conformed to this standard as campaigning for the Democratic and Republican primaries began the political jockeying for some important statewide seats. Money initially seemed to be the biggest considera- tion for the Democrats in choosing a candidate for Texas governor. Many political analysts believed the acid test for the Democrats would be: Who has the most money to mount an effective campaign against the Republican incumbent, millionaire Gov. Bill Clements? The most obvious answer didn't prove to be the right one, however. Railroad Commissioner Buddy Temple, while from a background of great personal wealth, couldn't summon the support needed to defeat Texas Attorney General Mark White in the Democratic primary for governor, and afterwards dropped out of the race. nother gubernatorial hopeful, Bob Arm- strong, who served competently as the state's land commissioner and was highly regarded by many Democrats, had neither the name recognition nor funds to defeat White. So while most ACU students were studying for finals or preparing for graduation, the Democrats turned out on the first Saturday in May to support Mark White as the No. 1 challenger to Gov. Clements 210 Texas Politics for the November general election. The primary race between White and Temple ended so closely that a June 12 run-off was announced. However, before the run-off election took place, Tem- ple withdrew from the race with little explanation. Some news media and other political observers speculated that Temple had never intended to win the race, that instead he sought only to increase his name recognition with Texas voters for a future race. hile much of the state's media attention was focused on the governor's race, Abilene and the ACU area were scenes of some significant political activity as well. ACU government professor and State Rep. Gary Thompson became involved in the redistricting con- troversy that plagued the state for much of the year. One redistricting plan in the fall of 1981 was drawn to pit Thompson against Walter Grubbs, another area representative to the state legislature. The two representatives, not wishing to oppose each other in the election, for political as well as personal reasons, solved their conflict in a quick move - literally. Grubbs, barely meeting the one-year residence re- quirement for state legislature candidates, moved his family home into the neighboring district to avoid a contest with Thompson. Although this solution seemed effective for the Abilene area representatives, the new redistricting plan met with opposition in many parts of the state. The new district lines rulings were eventually appealed in Tex 1 the state's justice department, causing many Jlitical observers to doubt the entire redistricting 'ocess. hile Thompson and Grubbs avoided facing each other in the election, the ACU pro- fessor did not run unopposed in his bid for the legislature. Robert English, a former student of Thompson's at CU and a black community activist, challenged emocrat Thompson in the partyis state primary, :lieving that his views better reflected Democratic eals than did Thompson's. English was defeated by the incumbent, however, trnering only 800 votes in one of the worst attended ections in 30 years. Voter turnout was encouraged on campus this spring f a new campus political group that helped sponsor a 'ter registration drive in early March. The ACU emocratsi made its debut in 1981-82, and the small oup conducted receptions for noted Democrats such Armstrong and Omar Burleson, a 32-year veteran the U.S. House of Representatives. On a campus that in the 1980 election saw :publican-oriented groups such as the Young epublicans, Young Conservatives and Students for eagan, the ACU Democrats became the sole campus ganization for that party in a state that traditionally ted Democrat. The Republican student movement continued in the rm of the Young Republicans, a group of 10-15 idents. They conducted receptions for party can- Llates including George Strake, former secretary of S state and candidate for Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby,s post. Young Republicans executive committee member Robert Pitman, sophomore history major, was Strake's campus campaign representative. Mary Wynn, senior oral communication major, also promoted candidates on campus, but from the other side of the fence as chairman of the ACU Democrats. Wynn, who described herself as "one of the new voters . . . a Democrat who reserves the right to vote Republican if 1 feel I need to e but I've never felt the need to," worked in the Armstrong campaign. She also participated in Democratic politics as a delegate from her precinct who advanced to the Sept. 10-11 state convention. The oral communication major, who specialized in political communication, said she appreciated the clean campaign Armstrong ran. White's advertising helped his campaign, Wynn said. But, she said, his high visibility as state attorney general made him well-known to Texas voters and was the biggest reason for his primary win. he political advertising she spoke of, as well as other campaign activities, hit a peak locally and statewide in the weeks before the May - primaries. Local television viewers were treated to the usual promises, attacks and rebuttals of political commercials. The primary results brought a temporary lull in the campaigning until the November general election - a lull not unlike a calm before the storm.

J. Humble, chairman of the ACU Bible department said of Dr. Batsell Barrett Baxter. "His roots were in Abilene, but his influence stretched around the world, a world that is better because of his life." Baxter, known worldwide as a minister, professor and speaker for the Herald of Truth radio and television broadcast ministry, died March 31, 1982, after a lengthy battle with abdominal cancer. "Our loss is immensef' said Joe R. Barnett, director of the Pathways Ministry in Lubbock and a fellow worker for the Herald of Truth. However, Baxter's death reinforced many people's beliefs that his life made this world better. Positive effects he had on ACU were proven when he was named an Outstand- ing Alumnus in 1961 and awarded an honorary doctorate in 1979. Again during Chapel April 1, 1982, ACU paid a memorial tribute to Baxter, who attended Abilene Christian Schools from elementary school through college, except for two years at David Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tenn. Baxter was born in Cordell, Okla., Sept. 23, 1916, but spent most of his childhood in Abilene where his father, Batsell Bax- ter, served from 1924-32 as the sixth presi- dent of ACU. He earned a B.A. degree from ACU in 1937. Then in December 1938 he married Wanda Roberts in Taft, Texas. They moved to California, and Baxter com- pleted his M.A. degree in 1938 and his Ph.D. in 1944 at the University of Southern California. While at USC Baxter taught speech at Pepperdine University. After completing his doctorate he joined the faculty at David Lipscomb College as a professor of speech and Bible, eventually becoming the This page: Batsell Barrett Baxter, ad- dresses a crowd of more than 5,000 at a citywide worship service in Moody Col- iseum. The service, traditionally in late August, allowed students to become ac- quainted with Abilene area congregations. head of the speech department. In 1956 he resigned to become head of the Bible department, a position he filled until his death. Baxter served as a minister for several congregations, including 25 years with the Hillsboro Church of Christ in Nashville. In 1960 he joined the Abilene-based Herald of Truth, which was overseen by the elders of the Highland Church of Christ. He also worked on the editorial staffs of 20th Century Christian, Gospel Advocate and Upreach Magazine and wrote several books. "With a great mind and a great heart he has represented the very best among us as preacher, teacher and writer," Dr. John C. Stevens, chancellor of ACU, said during the April memorial service. Through all the years of his preaching, teaching and writing Baxter had touched many people's lives. One life in particular that Baxter touched because of their common illnesses of cancer was that of Randy Becton, founder of the Cancer Caring Ministry and program coordinator for the Herald of Truth. Becton said, "He had an uncommon sense of caring for one individual, which in my way of thinking, gave him the right to speak to the masses about Jesus Christ." "I think he had no real sense of his own greatness. He was unassuming. He's the only man I know who could chew a hot dog with you at a baseball game and be perfectly at home," said Becton. "He just loved the ordinary things. I just loved himf' The people who knew Baxter well spoke of his gentleness and kindness. "I knew Batsell first as one of my teachers at David Lipscomb College 34 years ago, and in more recent years was privileged to work with him," said Dr. Harold Hazelip, dean of the Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, Tenn., and co-worker with Baxter for the Herald of Truth. "Kindness and gentleness were qualities he never failed to radiate to others." "Even when he was physically ex- hausted, when he was overextending himself for others, he exuded a spirit of kindness. This always impresses peoplef' And Landon Saunders, creator and director of Heartbeat, a radio and personal contact outreach ministry, said, "In terms of the history of our people and their walk in the world, his walk through our lives was like the walk of a giant. And yet his walk was a walk of great gentleness." 'iWhen I've sung the hymn 'My God and I go in the fields together, we walk and talk as good friends should and do,' and wasn't quite sure of my own walk, I was always sure of Batsellf' Mrs. Buna Rickner, a retired teacher from Taylor Elementary School, was one of Baxterls classmates at ACC, a student of his father and a friend of his family. She remembered a story about Baxter's mother: "She had been married for awhile and had not been able to have children. She prayed and prayed and prayed to God for a child and told Him if He would give her a child, she would dedicate him to service for God. Batsell Baxter tried to fulfill that goal. From the time I knew him he was a dedicated Christian." Barnett summarized the feelings of love and loss for Baxter when he said, "He was a gracious man who loved God, and his fellow man, and spent his entire life seek- ing to bring them together." "The world is so much better because he was here."

Group members came back to Abilene early to leave for a week-long tour. They performed at a number of churches throughout Colorado and also sang at a public school. Their tour wasn't all work, however. Group members took a short break from singing to go skiing on Colorado's slopes. They then traveled southward to Oklahoma City to perform at the Chris- tian College Choral Festival at Oklahoma Christian College. In April the singers also went on a three-day tour in Texas. They performed for high schools and Church of Christ con- gregations in Sherman, in North Central Texas, and in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Also in the spring semester several peo- ple were added to the group from other choirs, Prince said. About 60 vocalists were in the group in the spring, an increase of about 10. One of A Cappella's purposes, explained Prince, was to introduce the group, and particularly the music majors, to different types of music. A Cappella performed a variety of music including classical, religious and 20th century works. The musicians sold albums of hymns recorded by last year's chorus as their primary fund-raising activity to help finance their tours and other activities. Besides tour performances, A Cappella performed several times on campus. They had concerts in the fall and spring, per- formed at High School Day and sang at President William J. Teague's inauguration. A Cappella prepared for its perfor- mances by practicing each school day. Their practices included a short devotional at the beginning of each class and a weekly message or "thought for the week," said Prince, who initiated the devotionals. Dana Brown, A Cappella secretary and senior music education major from Portland, Ore., said the devotionals "helped us define our purpose. We're not just using our singing talent to perform for an audience 7 we're singing for the Lord."

Ad Club members tour agene In May one of the Advertising Club's members received an award from the American Advertising Federation. Kent Barnett, a senior management ma- jor from Abilene, received the award for "excellence in advertising" in the 10th district of the American Advertising Federation. Barnett, advertising manager of the Op- timist, sold more than 550,000 of advertis- ing throughout the year. In October members of the campus chapter of the Advertising Club attended a luncheon meeting of Abilene's professional Advertising Club, said Dana Robinson, in- structor of communication and sponsor of the organization. Each student who attended the luncheon was the guest of one of the professional members. And after the luncheon, which was at the Petroleum Club, each profes- sional member took his student guest on a tour of his business, Robinson said. The group also went on a tour in March of Zachry Associates Inc., a local advertis- ing firm. Robinson said the tour included a demonstration of the printing equipment used by the company and a question and answer session about careers in advertising. Robinson said the purpose of the Ad Club was to promote a better understand- ing of advertising and to provide a way for advertising students to know each other better. "lt's a way to build relationships be- tween advertising students on campus," she said. "So many of the advertising students don't know each other. The club lets advertising students get to know each other better and have some unity."

"Most people think we're just a bunch of old cowboys," he said, "and that is almost true. But . . . we accomplish things." One of those accomplishments was rais- ing funds to support the animal judging team and to finance banquets, Lanier said. The first such fund-raising project was the club's October sale of hams purchased from Gooch Packing Co. The club switched from pork to goat Oct. I6 and helped sponsor the "Roast the Rams" barbecue at the Allen Farm before the Angelo State University football game. The Aggie Club acted as host for the first open horse show for junior and senioi divisions in Abilene. The people whose horses won received belt buckles. The club also was host of the National Block and Bridle Tour Feb. 2 for the Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and New Mexico regions. Most major southwesterr universities participated in the tour of ma- jor ranches, veterinary clinics, breeding farms and stockyards in this area. "Overall," Lanier said, "this has been the most successful year in about three years." ,W A., FRONT ROW - Lisa Butler, Larry Martin, Sandra Tetreault, Sammy Bradley, Brad Stuart, Chuck Milner, Carter Scott, Charlie Singleton, Kendall Young, Janie Swann.

Aggie Club Alpha Chi gives regalia to president ACU's chapter of Alpha Chi, a national honor society, presented President William J. Teague with the academic robes that he wore in his February inauguration. Twelve years before, Teague's predecessor, Dr. John C. Stevens, had received his inaugural robes from Alpha Chi. The honor society continued its practice of sponsoring academic lectures. In the spring Dr. Paul Morris, associate professor of physics, presented a lecture titled "Albert Einstein - the Mathematician, Artist and Philosopher? Morris stressed the need for students to learn about the sciences and the humanities to be better prepared to make moral decisions. In the fall Alpha Chi sponsored a recep- tion to recognize freshman honor students and acquaint them with Alpha Chi members. Dr. LeMoine Lewis, professor of Bible and former Alpha Chi sponsor, spoke at the reception. Nineteen members attended the regional Alpha Chi convention at Southwestern University in Georgetown, where students presented papers, com- peted for scholarships and attended meetings. Dr. Clark Stevens, professor of biology and Alpha Chi sponsor, said the convention was significant because Alpha Chi began in Georgetown. Three ACU students competed for scholarships at Georgetown. Joanna Austin, senior English major from Abilene, and Beth Barnes, a senior sec- ondary education-history major from An- chorage, Alaska, competed for regional awards. Mel Witcher, senior music educa- tion major from Abilene, competed for the national H. Y. Benedict Fellowship Scholarship. Competitors were judged on their scholarly work and grade point average. Juniors and seniors with a 3.4 grade point average and at least 64 college hours were eligible for Alpha Chi membership.

Alpha Chl 225 ACM team advances to national The Association for Computing Machinery programming team won first place in the graduatefuniversity division Jan. 18 at the ACM South-Central Regional Contest at the University of Texas in Arlington. Twenty-four teams from universities and colleges in Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas competed in the graduate and undergraduate divisions. Since 1978 the ACU team has competed at the graduate X university level. Dr. Dwight Caughfield, associate pro- fessor of computer science and sponsor of the team, said, "The university division was easier for us to compete in because the types of problems presented in that com- petition were more like what the team members were doing in their classes." He said the graduatefuniversity level was for teams from schools that had graduate programs, and the undergraduate or college division was for teams from schools that did not have graduate programs. "But each school can decide whether it wants to compete at the university or col- lege level," Caughfield said. "For the past two years Baylor and Angelo State have competed at the college level. It's unusual in this region for a school that doesn't have a graduate program to compete at the university level." At the regional contest, the ACU team and the team from Baylor University in Waco qualified for the national program- ming contest, which was conducted Feb. 9-ll in Indianapolis, Ind. ACU did not place in the meet. Caughfield said contest winners were determined by the number of problems a team could solve in a limited amount of time by preparing a computer program. "The problems the team had to solve were similar to the problems that they en- countered in their course work," he said.

Chemistr tudents tour D plant A tour of Dow Chemical Co.'s plant in Freeport highlighted the year for members of the ACU chapter of the American Chemical Society. Doug Thompson, former ACS president and junior chemistry major from Greeley, Colo., said the tour "helped me decide that I am definitely interested in an industrial chemistry job." HI really enjoyed the tour," Thompson said. "I liked seeing the research that was not routinef' Thompson and 17 other chemistry ma- jors were members of the campus ACS chapter, affiliated with the professional society. Membership in ACU's chapter of the American Chemical Society encouraged students to learn more about chemistry, said Dr. Ben Hutchinson, professor of chemistry and ACS faculty sponsor. The club met monthly and sponsored guest speakers from institutions or in- dustries. Speakers at club meetings includ- ed Dr. David Pennington from Baylor University in Waco, Dr. Scott J. Norton from North Texas State University in Denton and Dr. Robert E. Ireland from California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif. Many ACS members taught chemistry labs or did chemistry research. "Nearly all the members in here are involved in a research project under different pro- fessors," said Todd Marler, senior chemistry major from Abilene. ACS members received information about chemical jobs, careers and graduate school from the society, Hutchinson said. But Hutchinson said the group's main event was the Dow tour. During the tour, Marler said, members saw plant operations, chemical labs and demonstrations about use of plastics pro- duced by Dow Chemical.

American Chemical Society APO funds marker for Ad Building 'sWe're proud of who we are," said Robin Worsham, president of Alpha Phi Omega. "And that's been our motto for the 198.1-82 year." Those words described the national ser- vice fraternity's true colors as members of the organization planned and worked on various service projects throughout the year. ACU,s chapter of A Phi O, which was one of 500 university chapters throughout the nation, was responsible for four suc- cessful blood drives in the Main Room of the McGlothlin Campus Center. Club members donated the money from the drives to help Christian Homes of Abilene, an adoptionfplacement service sponsored by various Churches of Christ throughout the city. In addition to organizing the blood drives, the 19-member club collected cann- ed foods to give to the elderly for the Meals on Wheels program. Other service projects included distributing the Friday issue of the Optimist every week and helping dur- ing the registration process during both semesters. Also, they donated money for a historical marker, which was placed Feb. 8 in front of the Administration Building. A Phi O members worked jointly with the Texas State Historical Commission and the history department in placing the marker. Although A Phi O was not a social club, they did accept pledges each semester, Worsham said. Pledges had to participate in 30 hours of service activities and had to visit all the members during the nine-week pledge period. A "Everyone who shows a desire and com- mitment to service is accepted into the organization," Worsham said. The club had two major social events during the year, the Christmas banquet and the spring awards banquet. At the awards banquet, Worsham received the New Zeta Award and Don Berryman, a senior math-computer science major, received the Presidential Award.

Council helps major , assists dean The Business Administration Council helped plan the College of Business Ad- ministration's Dec. 10 breakfast with Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state. B.A. Council members helped serve as hosts and suggested possible guests for the breakfast at Loewis Anatole in Dallas, said Larry Musick, council member and junior accounting major. The council also contributed ideas to the college's plan for a S5 million building and began handling teacher evaluations for the entire college. Through the year the council also con- tinued its preregistration responsibilities. Musick said council members were available during preregistration to answer such questions as " 'Should I take this'?' or 'Do I need to have this to graduate? " The 24 council members were required to have a good knowledge of the College of Business, have completed at least 30 semester hours and have earned a grade point average of 2.5 or higher. Musick said the executive council selected council members to replace those who had graduated or left ACU. "They try to have the upper echelon," Musick said. The council met weekly with Dr. Bill Petty, dean of the college, and Jozell Brister, associate dean. During those meetings, Musick said, the council members and the deans discussed such matters as preregistration procedures, training in ethics, and discipline of students caught cheating. When issues involving students and teachers arose, Musick said Mthe deans usually take our advice and go with it."

Steven Laman, president of the organization in the spring, said many students thought Tri-Beta was for biology majors only. Instead members' majors in- cluded physics, secondary education, animal science and chemistry, as well as general biology and the health sciences, said Laman, a predental hygiene major. Laman suggested one reason people from so many different areas joined the club: "lt's a good thing to have when you are interviewing for jobs or medical school." The organization also sponsored films and lectures in the spring. Members view- ed films on heart surgery, soil erosion and other topics. Beta Beta Beta also invited Dr. John Brewer, a microbiologist from the Hardin-Simmons University Science Research Center, to speak at the clubss spring banquet. Dr. Archie Manis, associate professor of biology and Tri-Beta sponsor, said Brewer "shared some reminiscences of his work in research through the years," including his work with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The microbiologist's stories "had people hanging on the edge of their seats," Manis said. Brewer also inducted the new Tri- Beta members. Besides helping spread interest in biology through lectures and films, Laman said Beta Beta Beta helped its members develop a close professional relationship with biology professors. Members of the honor organization planned for a biology tutoring service that would begin in the fall of 1982 and would be run by Tri-Beta members. Beta Beta Beta membership was open to students who had completed 12 semester hours of biology classes with a 3.0 grade point average and had a 2.85 overall GPA.

The "A" Club was established on the campus in 1917 by Dr. G. C. Morlan, pro- fessor of education, and in 1958 it became affiliated with Blue Key "because of their similar purposes." ' Junior or senior men with at least a 3.0 grade point average who "exhibit outstan- ding leadership and Christian character" were eligible for membership in the honor organization. And in April Blue Key in- itiated approximately 35 members, Spain said. He said fall membership in the organization was down because "timing was off on taking in new members." The club offered two scholarships to "worthy graduate students." The scholar- ships were the Blue Key Scholarships and the Leonard Burford Memorial Scholarships. The Blue Key Scholarships were given to students taking at least nine hours in a graduate program. They were required to have maintained a 3.0 GPA in all their course work. The Leonard Burford Memorial Scholarship was established in 1961 in memory of Dr. Burford, longtime chair- man of the music department at ACU. The endowment fund was to be "invested with earnings to be used as scholarships for the Graduate Schoolf, And Blue Key planned to add to the fund each year until it reached S10,000.

Big Purple most of its recognition and took most of the band members' time. But they also found time to prepare and put on the band's Christmas for Children party for needy children. John Whitwell, Big Purple director and associate professor of music, said the party has been given annually since he played with the band as a student in the early 19605. Whitwell said the band purchased food, toys and warm coats for seven children. The students and the children celebrated in the Big Purple band hall, which was decorated with a huge Christmas tree. Douglas Fry, director emeritus, played Santa Claus at the Dec. 6 party, which band members funded with more than 51,000 in donations.

"And that was just from within the band," said Eddie Meaders, president of Big Purple and a senior from Houston. "We didn't seek outside help on that." Besides continuing its traditional party and marching shows, Meaders said the band also performed at basketball games and in concerts. "There's more to Big Pur- ple than marehing. We do sit-down con- certs, and put on our tuxedosf' he said. Instrumental musicians performed as the Big Purple in the fall semester only. ln the spring semester the band split into two groups, Symphonic Band and Concert Band. The Symphonic Band played "more serious music" and the Concert Band played "easier-style music" and "more popular-type works," Meaders said. Big Purple arching band uses intricate style Members of Symphonic Band audi- tioned and were chosen according to their abilities, but no student was excluded from Concert Band. Likewise, Big Purple members were not required to audition before becoming a part of the marching band. Although he was president of the school's largest band, Meaders was not a music major, but a government major who planned to attend law school. The presi- dent said two of the last three Big Purple presidents also were non-music majors. Meaders said being president of the band was hard but "a great job. lim more of a social director. They call the band the largest social club on campus," he added. In addition to Meaders, junior mass communication majors Bart Moyers and Steve Sargent helped lead the band as drum majors. Ed George, assistant professor of music, assisted Whitwell in directing the band and designing the marching shows. The directors led the marching band in what Meaders called a "corps style," a marching style that band members described as more fluid and intricate than traditional military marching band style. Members of the Big Purple had two favorite pieces, "March Grandiosen and "Bugler's Dream," Meaders said. When the group played "Bugler's Dream" one member acted out lighting a flame similar to the Olympic torch. Among the group's 1981 performances were the West Texas State Fair and Rodeo parade and a Fall Revue, a concert featur- ing music played during the football halftime shows.

Big Purple - 235 Choralaires experiences hortage of male voices Choralaires, traditionally a mixed voice vocal group, faced an unusual situation during the fall semester. Gary Mabry, in- structor of music and director of the chorus, said it became necessary for Choralaires to become an all-female chorus at the beginning of the year. With the expansion of A Cappella to more than 50 members in the fall semester, more positions became available in both Concert Chorale and Choralaires. In order to balance the remaining two choirs with proper voice parts, it was necessary to shift all unassigned male voices to Concert Chorale, making Choralaires a women's chorus, Mabry said. Approximately 30 women became in- volved in the fall activities of Choralaires, which was primarily a preparatory choral group that focused on the development of proper vocal technique and improvement of music sight-reading. During the first semester Mabry tried to improve the skills of choir members by in- troducing them to challenging music oriented to the female voice. Some of the accomplishments of the fall semester included learning and performing "Ceremony of Carols," a collection of music with harp accompaniment by Ben- jamin Brittain. Most of the first semester was spent rehearsing and mastering the collection that was later performed at the Christmas choral concert. Also, Mabry instructed the choir in sight-reading many choral works by various composers in order to familiarize Choralaires with notable musical pieces while improving sight-singing skills. Many new members joined Choralaires for the spring semester, and with an in- creased number of men auditioning for positions in the spring, Choralaires once again became a mixed chorus. The group devoted much of the spring rehearsal period preparing a concert that was performed in February as part of the annual Lectureship activities and in- augural festivities. The 40-member chorus joined other ACU choral organizations in a perfor- mance celebrating the inauguration of William J. Teague, the ninth president of ACU. Choralaires finished the year in April with a spring concert in Cullen Auditorium. l This page: top A Robin Whisenant, a sophomore nursing major from Durant, Okla., and Paul Rotenberry, a junior ac- counting majorfrom Abilene, sing during a concert in Cullen Auditorium, center A Lori Farrington, an oral communication disorders major from Poquoson, Va., and Kaleen Smith, afreshman psychology ma- jor from San Antonio, perform at a con- certfollowing the Lectureship assembly in Moody Coliseumg bottom - Members of Choralaires.

CSO assists victim of ct. flood Service to ACU students and to the university was the goal ofthe women ofthe Campus Service Organization, and the Columbus Day flood in Abilene gave them an unusual opportunity to serve. Kris Hunzinger, a senior elementary education major from Warren, Pa., was the director for the clean up after the flood. Members walked west down East North 16th Street where much of the heavy flooding occurred and assisted some of the residents with salvaging their belongings. Although helping the flood victims was not a usual service project for CSO members, they participated in regular yearly service projects for ACU. CSO helped at registration during Homecoming, High School Day, Junior- Senior Day and Lectureship, and super- vised the voting booths during the elections for class and Students' Association. They also served in November as hostesses at a tea for the ACU dorm mothers. Jana Palmer, a sophomore elementary education major from Fort Worth, and Beth Armstrong, a freshman from Anson, entertained the dorm mothers with a flute duet. CSO members served hot tea and cookies and asked the dorm mothers to tell an anecdote about their jobs. They had one social during the year in honor of the women who were graduating. The semi-formal December social was at K-Bob's Steak House. CSO members gave ceramic Christmas bells to graduating seniors Kathy Arnold, a business ac- counting major, and Kris Hunzinger. Mrs. R. L. Roberts, a librarian and CSO sponsor was given a ceramic bell for her service, and Cheryl Gabrielson, a freshman pre-engineering major, received an award for accumulating the most serv- ice hours.

CSO 237 Concert and performs se Student instrumental musicians who did not seek an intense and demanding perfor- ming group, but also did not want to give up playing with a band, were able to study and perform music in Concert Band, said John Whitwell, director of bands and associate professor of music. Most Concert Band members did not major in music, Whitwell said. However, he said, he and Concert Band director Ed George, associate professor of music, in- troduced members to serious music and chose "the finest band literature . . .onthe level ofthe group." "By the time band people get to the university level," Whitwell said, "they want to take it Cmusicj seriously. l don't think any one of them would want something that was not challenging." Concert Band performed major concerts just before Christmas break, during February's Lectureship and in March. The band's major works for the three concerts were Gustav Holst's "Second Suite in F Major," "Giannini Fantasia" and Robert Jaser's "Third Suite for Band." During the year Concert Band also per- formed with Symphonic Band, the spring semester band directed by Whitwell that included more advanced musicians and played more challenging works. The bands combined to present the Commencement concert and ended the year with a lawn concert during the Professional Food Ser- N, riou music vice's supper on the grounds. Because the two bands met each day a noon, Whitwell said he and George wer able to maintain contacts with both group of musicians by occasionally directing eac other's bands.

Chorale performs at ospel Hour "Every Concert Chorale rehearsal began with prayer requests and a prayer led by one of the men of the group," said Billie McConnell, a sophomore secondary education major from Lubbock. "The re- quests were from member's personal lives, and not from the group as a whole, which brought the group closer spiritually and socially. Julie Sandefur, a senior music education major from Wichita Falls, said that the chorale had a system within the group called Prayer Partners. Section leaders assigned each person another member of the chorale, and it was their responsibility to pray for their partner during the semester, and to take an interest in the life of their partner, Sandefur said. Sandefur said that the group's success was a result of the friendships formed throughout the year as well as the prac- tices and performances. McConnell and Sandefur both said the highlight of the performances by Concert Chorale was singing for the International Gospel Hour in Fort Worth. Sandefur said, "It was good for the group to be away from ACU and sing for an audience. The performance was ex- citing because it was recorded to be played on the International Gospel Hour radio program." The chorale, under the direction of Milton Pullen, associate professor of music and director of chorale activities, sang a variety of music. Sandefur listed Pullen's professional abilities and his willingness to work with the students as another reason for the group's success. "Pullen communicates frankly and is good at illustrating," she said. "He is ex- cited about his work, and that helps the choir get excited about the music."

The team placed first at the national tournament in Hammond, La. Cardot said the ACU team was the No. l team in the debate division, and in the individual divi- sion the team had a superior ranking. Team members were judged in several categories. In the debate division, competi- tion was divided into standard debate, which dealt with a policy-type question, and CEDA, which was value debating and in which the topic changed each semester, Cardot said. Individual competition was divided into public speaking and interpretive events. Public speaking consisted of oratory, im- promptu speaking and extemporaneous speaking. ln impromptu and extem- poraneous speaking, students had a limited amount of time to study an assigned topic and prepare a short speech. Interpretive events included prose, poetry and dramatic readings. Also, during the spring semester the team served as hosts at a National Foren- sics League regional tournament. Cardot said it was a tournament for high school debate teams and was the equivalent of a state tournament. He said that approx- imately 40O students attended the competition. Cardot said interest in public speaking and debate was the major qualification for members of the team. "Probably about half of the team members are not oral communication majors. It doesn't really make a difference," he said, "because some of the most successful speakers are not oral comm majors."

Agriculture honor club has ham sale Members of Delta Tau Alpha, the honor organization for agriculture majors, par- ticipated in the same activities as did the Aggie Club members, said Dr. Francis Churchill, Delta Tau Alpha sponsor and professor of agriculture. Delta Tau Alpha members also were members of the Aggie Club. But, Chur- chill said, few Aggie Club members were in the honor organization "quite frankly because they can't make the grades." Members of the honor society were re- quired to have a 3.0 grade point average in agriculture, a 2.5 overall GPA and 45 hours completed or in progress, including 15 hours of agriculture classes, Churchill said. The sponsor also said that most ag ma- jors wanted to be in Delta Tau Alpha because membership helped in seeking jobs. Lisa Butler, junior animal science ma- jor, served as the honor society's president. She and Pam Neathery, sophomore pre- veterinary major, represented ACU at the Delta Tau Alpha national meeting at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. At that March meeting Butler and Neathery "helped lay the groundwork" for the ACU chapter of Delta Tau Alpha to have a student on the national group's pro- gram in the 1983 meeting, Churchill said. The chapter's goal, the sponsor said, was to have a candidate for national office in 1983. Activities that Delta Tau Alpha members participted in with the Aggie Club included the fall ham sale, the Roast the Rams barbecue in October and the spr- ing banquet.

The discussion focused on cen- sorship, the exercise of good taste, moral values in relation to aesthetics and Chris- tian attitudes toward the fine arts and the media. Panelists included Dr. Jack Boyd, pro- fessor of music, Lewis Fulks, professor of communication, Dr. Preston Harper, pro- fessor of English, Dr. Arthur Williams, professor of art, and Doug Mendenhall, a senior news-editorial major and the editor of the Optimist. Another major event the club par- ticipated in was a workshop with Gwen- dolyn Brooks, a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet. Brooks read her poetry and con- ducted a poetry workshop which included a question-and-answer session at ACU on Nov. 20. More than 200 people attended the reading. Although the club did not sponsor the event, they coordinated the arrangements for Brooks' visit. The English Club was not only con- cerned with the works of famous poets, but took an interest in the literary works of ACU students. The Pickwicker, an annual literary journal published by the English Club, was a magazine of student work. The Pickwicker went on sale in mid-April. One of the main objectives of the club was to encourage members to write and to critique the work of other writers. Several meetings centered on the work that had been done by the students. Club members read their work, and then discussed the struggles and obstacles they encountered in their writing. In March, club members shared papers they had written on literary themes. Bethanie Camall read her paper "Death of the Theatref' Joanna Austin read a poem entitled "An Elementary School Classroom in a Slumg" and Paul Colby read his paper titled "All Rivers Run Into the Sea."

Ome a Rho "The difference between Omega Rho Alpha and other organizations is obvious to us," said Dr. Dale Priest, professor of English and sponsor of the organization. "We are not a social club. We are an honorary society that puts scholastic in- tereste first and socizal interests second."

The club was the undergraduate sister organization to Sigma Tau Delta, a nationally affiliated, upper-level English honor society, Priest said. He said that entrance requirements could be satisfied in three ways. The most common way for entrance into the organization was for students to "test out" of English 1311 by the CLEP or some equivalent test, he said. Most of the members who were initiated during the fall semester already had received credit by exami-nation for the freshman English course. Priest said most of the members in- itiated during the spring ceremony receiv- ed their invitations by making an A in English 1311 during the fall semester. Receiving an A in English 1311 was the second frequently used way to satisfy en- trance requirements. He also listed a third way a student could become a member of Omega Rho Alpha, but said that the method was rarely used. A student could submit a writing sample for evaluation by the English faculty. In addition to the initiation ceremonies in October and February, the organization had a social in April at the University Church of Christ Activity Center. Priest said the meal was a catered barbecue din- ner, and they saw the movie "Fun with Dick and Jane" after the dinner. "It's been a good year, and this has been one of the largest, active groups in the last few years," Priest said. .K if . . .... u-.H I I FRONT ROW - Sandy Hiatt, Dana Montgomery, Rene Crown, Andrea Ruebush, Kaye Dawn Ridely, Toni Hogan, Melody Sanderson, Amy Adler, Heather Hilgers, Saynell Norton, Lori Beasley, Kathrine Davis, Terri O'Neal, Lorie Wade.

The Flying Cats were a group of 18 students with a special interest in gym- nastics. The group performed to the delight of high school students this fall on High School Day and during halftime at an ACU basketball game. But the performances those audiences saw and enjoyed were not without hard work. The team worked out for at least an hour every Monday through Thursday, preparing for the shows and practicing other events in which it was interested. A circus co-sponsored in April with the Students' Association highlighted the year for the group. Ben Zickefoose, team ad- viser, said the activities at the circus were intended to give students who worked with Christmas for Children a chance to follow up by bringing their children to the circus. Besides the gymnastic performances, the circus included rope-jumpers, Frisbee- throwers, baton-twirlers and unicyclists. The Flying Cats began in 1951 as a special interest club which performed as an exhibition team at various school- sponsored events. Zickefoose said the team used to compete against other schools in gymnastics but quit because of the expense involved. Members of the team were eligible for a special letter by meeting the requirements of attendance of practices, paying dues, participation in activities, and demonstrating proficiencies in two gym- nastic eventsf This page: left - Marsha Stone, a freshman accounting major from Gran- bury, visits with team members after a practiceg right - Milt Buckelew, a sophomore public relations major from San Antonio, does a handstand during a practice before a performance at High School Day,' bottom - Members of the Flying Cats. 244 Flying Cats l FRONT ROW - Marsha Stone.

JOY serves 'li O O 0 m1ss1onar1es, local elderly Members of JOY, a service organization for women, visited nursing home residents, wrote letters to missionaries and in other ways helped people understand the club's name, which stood for "Jesus, Others and Yourself." About 35 women made up the four ser- vice committees of JOY. Members needed to meet no special requirements - just be interested in serving others, said Polly Johnson, general chairman of the organization. Besides Johnson, who was a secondary home economics major, six other women helped lead the club. Kathy Barnett, a junior marketing ma- jor from San Angelo, was chairman of the welfare committee. She and her members helped Abilene residents through the Christian Service Center, which was operated by Church of Christ members to help the needy. Members of JOY regularly visited some of the people seeking aid from the center. The nursing home committee, led by Kay Patterson, junior elementary educa- tion major, and Brenda Mullins, sophomore elementary education major, sang every Monday night at the Happy Haven Nursing Home. Writing letters to missionaries kept other members busy. Amy Withers, junior English major, served as chairman of the mission committee. A fourth committee, the fellowship com- mittee, was led by co-chairmen Peggy Berry, sophomore general business major, and Linda Cannon, senior history major. That committee planned an April retreat for the entire club. The retreat allowed all members a rare opportunity to meet together. Normally, Johnson explained, the club members met in committees instead of together as an en- tire group.

JOY 245 HIS Singers perform at World' air A singing engagement at the 1982 World's Fair and a trip to Washington, D.C., highlighted the year for HIS Singers, a 16-member group who ministered in song. The group was invited to sing at the World's Fair in Knoxville, Tenn., during May. Following the performances there the group headed to the East Coast for a visit to the nation's capital. While in the capital city the singers spent time sightseeing as well as perform- ing for congregations there. On the return trip to Texas, they sang for congregations in Ohio, Missouri, Indiana and Oklahoma. Most of their efforts, however, were designed to better acquaint the local com- munity with their particular form of ministering, said Gary Mabry, instructor of music and coordinator of the group. He said that at least halfof their 25-plus performances were for local groups. HIS Singers performed at local Churches of Christ, the Kiwanis Club, the West Texas Fair and Dyess Air Force Base. They also performed at numerous ACU functions in- cluding High School Day, Homecoming and Lectureship. The purpose, ministering with music, was evident in the style of their programs. The singing parts were separated by speak- ing parts, all of which were scriptural quotes. "We're different from most singing groups in that we're not an in-depth music education group as much as a form of ministry in music," Mabry said. Mabry emphasized the group's cohesiveness, during performances and in outside activities, and said that in the past, the group had had outstanding soloists, but the "balance and blend of all the voices of this year's group has been great."

The Four O'Clock Jazz Ensemble joined the Five O'Clock Jazz Ensemble with the two organizations meeting at the times indicated by their titles. The Four and Five O,Clock Jazz Ensembles included 18 students each, with 15 wind instruments and three rhythm in- struments. Their programs included a variety ofjazz music from swing to more modern sounds, said Mel Witcher, student director of the Four O'Clock Ensemble. Ed George, associate professor of music, became the director of both ensembles when Dave Pennock, the former director of thejazz program, moved to anotherjob. George said the ensembles' appearances during the year included a brown bag con- cert, High School Day and Homecoming concerts, Sing Song, a spring concert and a jazz festival. The Abilene Cultural Affairs Council sponsored the brown bag concert as a way of familiarizing the people in Abilene with various entertainment groups, George said. "Several groups, including the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra, a mariachi band and our jazz ensemble, performed on the steps of the Civic Center once a week dur- ing the noon hour," George said. He said that Sing Song was a success and a disappointment to the ensemble. George and members of the jazz ensemble arranged all of the music for the Sing Song performances. 'flt was the first year that all the arrangements were really good. lt was a real success," he said. The ensemble was disappointed, he said, because their request for funds from Sing Song proceeds was refused, and because of a lack of money, the group was not able to go on tour.

Jazz Ensemble 247 J d ' t O O O O "This year the livestockjudging team, at most of the contests, were ahead of every Texas team . . . including some Texas teams like Texas Tech and A8LM," said Mike Bragg, an agriculture major and member of the ACU judging team. The judging teams had about 22 members who made up six teams. The teams competed in horse judging, livestock judging, meat evaluation, livestock evalua- tion, and soil and dairyjudging. "If you've got some background in agriculture and livestock or farming it helps," Bragg said. And most of the judg- ing team members were agriculture majors with agricultural backgrounds. The teams, which practiced every Tues- day and Thursday, competed at seven shows in the southern part of the country. They judged beef cattle, sheep, horses and swine to determine marketability of each animal. "The livestock are all judged according to their carcass value, or the value to the meat packer, and palatable meat yield for the consumerf' Bragg said. The ACU teams sponsored a High School Field Day contest for Future Farmers of America and Four-H Clubs, and high school and junior teams judged. "The ACU livestock judging team put the official placings on with the help of some some professors," he said. This year the freshman agricultural judging team competed at the National Southwest Hampshire Judging Contest in Sweethwater where they placed first overall. The judging teams also traveled to the Fort Worth Livestock Show where they gained an overall seventh place out of 13, and to the Houston Livestock Show where they placed fifth overall. ln October the teams traveled to the Louisiana State Fair in Shreveport, where they competed against 15 top agricultural universities and placed first overall. "It's a lot of work, but it's been worth it," Bragg said.

Instead, Ferguson said, ACU's Theta Epsilon chapter of the society was designed to include all education majors. The club attempted to help its more than 150 members with practical classroom applica- tions. "Kappa Delta Pi stresses the impor- tance of being active now," Ferguson said. At monthly meetings, which were the group's principal activities, members heard faculty members and administrators discuss practical issues. Guest speakers included Dr. Charles Rudolph, associate professor of psychology and director of the testing and counseling center, who cautioned future teachers on the use of test scores, and Dr. Gary Thompson, state representative and government department chairman, who urged teachers to keep abreast of political moves that would influence their profession. Dr. Herschel Avinger, professor of education, and Dr. William J. Teague, president, also spoke briefly to the group at the fall and spring induction ceremonies, respectively. Ferguson said Kappa Delta Pi inducted about 55 members each semester. Club counselor Dr. Kelly Hamby, associate professor of education, said one reason for the large number of initiates was the honor society's associate member- ship program. Sophomore education ma- jors who had at least a 2.58 grade point average became associate members, Ham- by said, so they would "have fellowship with the education majors before they reach theirjunior year."

KACU began the year with a new facul- ty adviser and a new music format, and by the time the year ended the station had ad- ded an award-winning public affairs program. Dave Spiceland, assistant professor of communication, became the station's faculty adviser in the fall. He said his first year went well as a whole. Spiceland said the station's music, chosen by music director Jeff P. Slatton, senior from New Orleans, could best be described as "contemporary hit radio." But whatever its title the station's music format drew criticism from at least five students early in the spring semester. The five circulated a petition that called for the station to include "music promoting the values of Christ . . . rather than exclusively worldly 'Top 40' music . . ." The peti- tioners told the Optimist that they intend- ed to submit the petition as a letter to the editor. However, the letter never was submitted to the paper. Spiceland said he had not heard about the petition until the Optimist began investigating the story. After the paper printed a page-one story, Spiceland said he received a letter from the peti- tioners who said they had not intended to circumvent the station adviser and directors. KACU did please some students, though, with a new public affairs program called "Examine" Bart Moyers, junior from Dallas, suggested the program that focused on ACU students' needs and pro- blems. Moyers said he received favorable comments about the program that played twice each week day. The station sent a tape of one "Ex- amine" broadcast to a regional contest where it received a second place prize for a radio news feature. Randy Ford, KACU program director, also received recognition when he won the television announcing contest at the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association's spring convention.

KACU 251 Club sells original art, earns l, 100 Kappa Pi? The Gamma Lambda Chapter of Kappa Pi International? The New Masters? Whatever name it went by, the ACU art club included about 40 art or art education majors and existed to help prepare students for the professional world said Cindy McPherson, senior from Azle and club treasurer. The club's major activity occurred Dec. 4-5 when members sold more that 51,100 worth of student prints, paintings, sculptures, pottery and other pieces. "Money from the art sale was used for club activities such as field tripsf' said Bobbie Ann Howell, senior from Las Vegas, Nev., and club vice president. Several members traveled to Dallas Feb. 2 and toured museums and galleries. In addition to educational and fund- raising activities, art club members met together socially. The club began the year with a picnic. Later in the fall members gathered to view slides of their faculty members' works when they were students. Just before spring finals Dr. Arthur Williams, associate professor of art and co-sponsor of the club, invited members to a barbecue at his studio in the country. McPherson said club members ate roasted goat, rabbit and brisket, then "roasted" the outgoing officers. One of the outgoing officers, Jeff Broderick, vice president and senior from Urbana, Ill., received a first place award from Kappa Pi International for his outstanding performance in sculpture and drawing. As for the group's official name, McPherson explained that The New Masters was the art club's name before it became affiliated with the art fraternity Kappa Pi International as the Gamma Lambda chapter. She said members agreed during the year to use the name Kappa Pi. This page: top H- Sophomore Kelly Walker waits for a club meeting to begin, bottom - Kappa Pi members and sponsors.

Spanish club learn , plays in meetings gHable usted Espanol? Many students to whom that sentence meant "Do you speak Spanish?" were members of La Tertulia, the Spanish club. Members of La Tertulia, which is Spanish for a group's regular meeting for conversation, met weekly to practice Spanish and learn about the cultures of Latin American countries. Lisa Ward, senior elementary education major from Abilene, said the meetings were conducted entirely in Spanish. "Well, sometimes we do use English," she added. At club meetings, Ward said, members listened to guest speakers, played games, had devotionals and just got to know each other better. Some of the group's guest speakers were MARK students and returned missionaries who spoke in Spanish about the cultures of the Latin American countries where they worked. 6'We have a Spanish Scrabble game and Spanish Monopolyf' Ward said, "and sometimes we played themf' To one of the game-playing sessions, she said, club ad- viser T. Mark Jones brought "stars or circles or something and if you spoke in English, you had to stick one of them on your facef, "You can be talking along in Spanish and can't find the word you want, so you put in an English one and don't even realize it," the senior said. The meetings' activities helped members use the language much more than they would in class. Members, familiarity with Spanish ranged from two women who were citizens of Guatemala to students in their second year of study at ACU. Although the club helped educate students about the Spanish language and cultures, Ward said part of its purpose was "just to get together."

La Tertulia 5 Phi pon or recital Although Mu Phi Epsilon, a national music fraternity, has had an ACU chapter for 20 years, the group had been inactive until recently, said Dana Brown, a junior music education major and vice president of the organization. She said the group, a professional music fraternity, allowed students to perform, work for scholarships and promote music quality among its members. "It's a lifelong membership and is considered an organization for professionals," she said. In November the group sponsored a combined recital of the music faculty. Dr. Sally Reid, chairman of the music depart- ment, performed an English horn solo, "Lied, pour Cor Anglais et Piano," and Dr. Ron Rathbun, chairman of the piano division performed "Theme and Variants," which was written by Dr. M. L. Daniels, professor of music. A choral trio that consisted of Colleen Blondeau, instructor of music, Tim Perkins, instructor of music, and Gary Mabry, instructor of music, also per- formed at the recital. During the spring semester Mu Phi members served as hosts at the fraternity's regional conference. Chapter members from Texas Tech, Midwestern State University and West Texas State Universi- ty attended the conference, which was held every three years. Tina l-Iehn, province governor for the Southwest region, spoke at the conference. The conference included a recital, a formal business meeting and informal sessions where members of the fraternity had the opportunity to discuss activities of the in- dividual chapters, Brown said. Other activities throughout the year in- cluded recitals by members of the fraterni- ty. "Faculty members and fraternity members usually performedf, she said. "And all the pledges had to perform at a recital. it was part of their entrance requirements."

The orchestra also performed Haydn's 88th Symphony at its Feb. 25 concert during Lectureship and Mendelssohn's Scotch Symphony at its April concert. Dr. Sally Reid, chairman of the music department, joined the orchestra as soloist in "Rhapsody for English Horn and Strings" in the group's December and February concerts. Although Reid had played with the ACU Orchestra several years before, Sharon Thweatt, senior piano major and violinist with the group, said the music i professor's participation in concerts was a change from last year. Also different from last year, said Thweatt, was the concentration on "what people outside of music call classicalf' She said the orchestra played more serious pieces and members exhibited a more serious attitude. "People really wanted to go after itf' The change came, she said, because of the difference in the musical tastes and styles of Rathbun and Ed George, who had directed the orchestra before. Thweatt also said the orchestra elected student officers who served as 'fleaders to keep the group together." i 2 i 3 l TRONT ROW - Julie Sandefur, Weston Walker, Judy Ward, Susan Boyd, Kay Patterson, Ann Ferguson.

The size of each issue ranged from 12-20 pages. Editor Doug Mendenhall, a senior news-editorial major from Yakima, Wash., said the Optimist made the move to publishing twice weekly for several reasons. "We thought that having two issues each week would help us keep our readers much more up to date on campus events," he said. An increase in the number of students working for the newspaper through mass communication courses was another reason for the expansion, Mendenhall said. He also said that "publishing biweekly is much better training for anyone who even- tually plans to work for a daily newspaper? In addition to covering campus events, the paper tried to confront issues and pro- blems faced by students, he said. In-depth articles discussed topics ranging from students frequenting nightclubs to anorex- ia nervosa to the importance of grades and graduate school. A major source of controversy throughout the year was the newspaperls policy of reporting the names of students arrested on criminal charges, Mendenhall said. 1 3 g Lkg, xg Y. wxswiiws t ,...t.

In the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association competition, the staff received 16 awards, including third place for overall presentation. The Optimist adviser, Dr. Charles Marler, was honored as TIPA Adviser of the Year for his work with the Optimist and students.

To work toward that goal Williams planned monthly programs with the theme "Knitting Us All Together." She said the theme symbolized the attempt the club tried to make to cover all areas of home economics. Throughout the year the club, which was affiliated with the Texas Home Economics Student Section, heard speakers on nutrition, the family, real estate and other areas of the home economics profession. Williams was well qualified to en- courage professionalism. ln November she received the Home Economist of the Year award from the Texas Home Economics Association, the professional group that encompassed the student section. THEA chose her from applicants all over the state because of her outstanding work in home economies. At one monthly meeting Sigma Tau Alpha members treated their "valentines," the home economics faculty members, to lunch at the Garden Tea Room. At the luncheon meeting Janice Allen, Garden Tea Room owner, spoke about applying home economics training in business. Also in the spring Sigma Tau Alpha sponsored a fashion tea. Williams said the club's officers and advisers chose a fashion show as the major fund-raising event because it involved fashion merchandising majors, who she thought were being left out of most activities. Williams said about 100 people attend- ed the show that featured more than 535,000 worth of clothing and accessories. Fashion merchandising majors coor- dinated the show's four areas A women's apparel, active sportswear, evening look and collegiate dressing.

Seekers of the Word gets official recognition During the spring semester Seekers of the Word, a Christian drama troupe, received official recognition as a student organization representing ACU, said RaDonna Belk, freshman radio-television major and member of the troupe. Seekers of the Word was the idea of Alan Brown, junior youth ministry major from Rockville, Md., and president of the troupe. Brown transferred to ACU in the fall of 1981 with the hope of joining the former ACU acting troupe, HIS Players. Since HIS Players no longer existed, Brown decided to fill what in his view was a gap in ACU's extracurricular program.

The troupe drew ideas from material that some of the members had gathered in the past. They presented them to the public in the form of songs, skits and au- dience participation activities. As some of the group's leaders reflected on the past year, they agreed on one ac- complishment: spiritual growth of the troupe. Robert Mathis, a freshman from Gar- diner, Mass., and public relations director for the troupe, said, "We've had our sparks and our disagreements, but we're solidify- ing more every day." He added that members realized they were not professionals, but tried to concen- trate on conveying important messages about life in Christ to their audiences. Brown said he was pleased with the group's accomplishments this year, and although he had only one year left at ACU, he already saw potential leadership for the troupe. "Seekers of the Word is here to stay as long as its members remember why they are performing," Brown said. "We're go- ing to take out a little time to say we care, we want to help, and we want to reach out and touch your lives through our skits or through our songs or just by being there." Seekers of the Word TD plan competition for writers Although Sigma Tau Delta sponsor Dr. Chris Willerton, professor of English, described the English honor society as fair- ly inactive, the organization's few ac- complishments were significant. Sigma Tau Delta, made up of approx- imately 30 students who were English ma- jors or had several English credits and an interest in the organization, sponsored the Rhetta Scott Garrett writing contest in January and February. As a second club project, members, who were juniors or seniors with a 3,0 or higher grade point average, helped write biographies of women in the school's history for a collection produced by the ACU Faculty Wives. One activity Willerton said the organization wanted to attend but could not was the biannual national Sigma Tau Delta convention. The convention took place on the campus of East Texas State University the same weekend most ACU members were taking a standardized education test required for teacher cer- tification. "lt just drove us nuts," the spon- sor said. Although members did not attend the national convention, one member gained recognition from the national body when one of her works was published in The Rectangle, Sigma Tau Delta's national journal. Sandra Baker, senior from Lyons, Ill., had her poem "Entertaining Thoughts of You" accepted for publication. In the spring Pat Bennett of McMurry College's English department spoke to members and initiates. Bennett, author of Talking with Texas Writers, gave an in- formal history of living Texas writers, Willerton said.

Indu trial ed organization tour plant The Eta Chapter of Sigma Tau Epsilon industrial arts education club f that's a pretty imposing mouthful. But Suzannah Graham, secretary- treasurer of the club, dispelled the rather serious impression the club's name con- veyed when she said the group's purpose was "mainly to get our majors together and have a good time." STE's 20-25 members met throughout the year for parties, including a picnic at the Abilene State Park. But the club also took "professional trips," president Stephen Brittain said. In the fall several members toured the General Motors plant in Fort Worth and the General Dynamics plant in Arlington. Members of STE also were members of the Texas Collegiate Industrial Arts Association and attended the TCIAA an- nual conference at Texas ASLM University Feb. 26-27, Brittain said. The club helped the industrial education department sponsor the annual West Cen- tral Texas Industrial Arts Regional Youth Conference, in which high school students entered drawing, wood, metal and other projects. STEjudged most of the projects. Club members combined their efforts with the department in other activities, such as making name tags for Lectureship visitors. The club also raised money to finance their trips by participating in the Oct. 31 Homecoming carnival with a dart-throw booth. Winners received belt buckles and wooden key chains made by STE members, Brittain said. Also each semester the club sold baked foods. "We have a few girls," Brittain said, 'Sand we usually meet over at their houses and cook." Graham supported her presi- dent's statement, "Those guys can cook, believe it or not!"

Sigma Tau Epsilon Social work major tour a hington Seventeen members of the Social Work Club spent their Spring Break vacation touring Washington, D.C., said Paul Maiden, assistant professor of social work and sponsor of the organization. Maiden, a former employee of the Department of Health and Human Ser- vices in Washington, arranged the trip. During their time in the Capital city the group had a conference with Tom McKee, assistant secretary for personal ad- ministration in the Department of Health and Human Services and Maiden's former boss. Maiden said that the conference with the assistant secretary was one of the highlights of the trip. Another highlight of the trip, he said, "was seeing a demonstra- tion about the situation in El Salvador. It was in LaFayette Park, which is across from the White I-Iousef' In addition to visiting the Department of Health and Human Services the group talked with U.S. Rep. Charles Stenholm, Abilene's Congressional representative. Maiden said they had their picture taken with Stenholm on the steps of the Capitol. They also toured the FBI building and were able to do some sightseeing on their own, he said. While they were in Washington the group stayed in the basement of the 16th Street Church of Christ. They rented cots to sleep on, and Maiden said that the students were responsible for gas and for their meals. He said the cost for the week- long trip was about S150 per student. "I planned the trip because I thought it would be an interesting thing to do," he said. "Since I had worked in Washington I had connections, and all I had to do was make some phone callsf' The Social Work Club also had a retreat during the fall semester at the Heart of Texas Bible Camp in Brownwood. Maiden said the retreat was primarily a social event, but that they did hear a speaker from the Department of Human Resources.

Al Gay, president of the Society of "hysics Students, the group who struck hat pose last year, said one reason was hat "people think physics students ought o be that way." Of course another reason, Gay said, was that society members vanted to be a little different. But besides planning a sequel to their rare-footed picture club members visited a esearch laboratory and planned a major iroject for the coming year. About 10 members toured the Los klamos, N.M., meson physics, solar :nergy and lasar facilities Nov. 5-8. Gay . tw ' S A g ...e P it 4 IN . . . l A Wwe. . xgjfkii F .....

In the spring Gay said society members worked with members of the campus chapters of the American Chemical Socie- ty and the Association of Computing Machinery to plan a schoolwide science fair for the 1982-83 school year. Although physics students often met and worked together during the year, Gay said they had little opportunity for social gatherings. However, the group did have its annual spring picnic in Putnam. Also in the spring five Society of Physics Students members joined Sigma Pi Sigma, the national honor society for physics students and alumni. Gay said about 5 per- cent of ACU's chapter of the Society of Physics Students also were members of the honor society.

Speech Club pon or CPR class The ACU chapter of the National Stu- dent Speech and Hearing Association sponsored a coronary pulmonary resuscita- tion course for speech pathology majors during the spring semester, said Steven Vertz, a speech pathology major from Abilene and vice president of the organization. A representative from the American Heart Association taught the course. Speech path majors who attended the course received a card saying they had suc- cessfully completed the course and were certified to administer CPR, Vertz said. "It was a good course," he said. "And it's something that is good for everybody to know. We would like to sponsor a CPR course every semester for all interested students? Other activities ofthe organization in- cluded a fall luncheon and a spring ban- quet, as well as monthly meetings. The luncheon was Nov. 13 at the Towne Crier restaurant, Vertz said. Kathy Spaulding, director of the communication disorders department at Hendrick Medical Center, spoke on S'Speech Pathology and Audiology in a Hospital Setting." Speakers at the club's monthly meetings included Brenda Willis Nolan and Sandra Striegler. Nolan, a 1981 graduate of the ACU communication disorders program, worked as a speech pathologist in Abilene elementary schools. Her topic dealt with working with children in the public schools. Striegler was a speech therapist at Crockett Elementary School in Abilene and an interpreter for the deaf at First Baptist Church. She spoke about teaching and working with the deaf. The annual banquet was April 22 in the Main Room of the Campus Center. At the banquet the club honored Dr. Ed Enzor, professor of communication and chairman of the communication department.

The society, accounting majors who had at least 30 semester hours of general credit, worked with the Internal Revenue Service to begin an IRS program called Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. The program was available to colleges nationwide. The VITA program provided help for people who had questions about their in- come tax papers. The program specifically was aimed at the elderly and lower income families, but was available to any person who had problems with his tax forms. The VITA students attended classes from 8:30 to ll:30 a.m. for four con- secutive Saturdays to learn how to com- plete all ofthe tax forms. After attending six hours of class and working I2 hours at one of the VITA offices, they received one semester hour of credit. Another of the society's activities was an annual reception for the recipient of the Accounting Excellence Award. The Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants gave the award to Glenn Dudenging, a postgraduate student from Stamford. The Student Accounting Society also started a lab for intermediate and ad- vanced accounting students on Tuesday nights during the spring semester. Rhonda Staples, a senior accounting major and president of the Accounting Society, taught the lab during the spring semester. The lab was not a mandatory re- quirement, but was designed to help students who were having difficulties with their accounting class work.

Student Accounting Student Advisory oard works behind the scenes "They are the arms and legs of the Alumni Association and the Parents Association," said Dewby Ray, director of alumni campus activities. She spoke of the members of the Stu- dent Advisory Board, a service organiza- tion that worked closely with the Alumni Association. The 150-member group helped at almost every special on-campus event. Mrs. Ray said their jobs varied, and sometimes they worked in the office, serv- ed as hosts and hostesses at receptions, and served as guides and ushers for visitors to the campus. "Some of the jobs are very unglamorous," Mrs. Ray said. "And some of their jobs are lots of fun.', She said that they served as hosts and hostesses at the class reunions during Homecoming, and that SAB members always enjoyed the opportunity to become acquainted with the alumni. "lt gave the students a chance to get to know some of the alumni, and it gave the alumni a chance to be exposed to some of the current students," she said. Members of the organization were usually invited to serve as a member of the SAB by the Alumni Association office, although Mrs. Ray said that occasionally people asked if they could serve on the SAB. "Membership has always been primarily by invitation," she said. "There has always been a certain amount of pride involved when they receive a special invitation." Mrs. Ray said that the SAB served more than one purpose. "Many of the student leaders, as well as alumni leaders, have come out of the SAB," she explained. "They have met more than the physical needs of the university." She continued, "The students have represented us well and have functioned beautifully. Everything they have done is valuable." Much of the work done by SAB members was behind-the-scenes work, and "that makes their willingness to work more special," she said. "They are servers," Mrs. Ray said.

Student ar ha mock trial, LSAT "There is no worse torture than the tor- ture of law." - Francis Bacon Bacon might have said that while study- ing for his Law School Admissions Test or waiting for his final test score. On Nov. 7, the Student Bar Association, an organization of students with an in- terest in law, began preparing for the mock LSAT. The test, given each semester, was taken in a timed setting similar to the ac- tual LSAT. . Bill Minick, a senior finance major from Fort Worth and president of SBA, said the SBA also helped students register for the Law School Admission Service and the ac- tual LSAT. Also, the organization helped students by reviewing preparation courses for the LSAT. And in addition to the mock LSAT, the SBA sponsored visits by admissions counselors from law schools around the country and various Texas law schools. The association brought several speakers to discuss topics relevant to the prospective lawyer. Beverly Tarpley, member of the Texas Bar Examiners board and a local attorney, spoke in October to the SBA about bar en- trance requirements and the future of a law career. Richard Lynn, associate professor of law at Pepperdine University School of Law, spoke in November on the topic of "Ethics and a Lawyer's Right to Free Speech." Lynn's speech focused on several highly publicized cases in which attorneys gave information to the media about a case before or after the trial. Edward O. Coultas, associate dean of the Southern Methodist University Law School, addressed the SBA in November. Minick said one of the highlights of the year's activities was a mock trial. "Hopefully this forum for practice in oral advocacy and limited trial procedure will be continued in coming years," he said.

After almost a month of trying to revise or amend the Students' Association con- stitution, Chris Tharrington, election director, discovered that all the Senate's copies of the constitution were missing the last page. That page contained Article Vll, which outlined procedures for amending the constitution and by-laws. But finally two amendments were ratified March 4. One raised the grade point average for an SA treasurer can- didate from 2.0 to 2.5. The second assured senators, class and executive officers that they would regain their offices if they ran for another position during their term and lost. Besides arranging its internal affairs, the SA arranged events for students. The SA sponsored a lecture by former Iranian hostage Barry Rosen. The former U.S. Press Attache at the Tehran Embassy gave a speech titled, "Iran As I Saw lt" and answered questions from the audience Nov. I9 in Cullen Auditorium. The SA also sponsored musical enter- tainment, including a Sept. 22 concert by country musician Ronnie Milsap. The student government organization also helped raise school spirit. The SA sponsored a 6'Roast the Rams" weekend before the Oct. 17 football game against the Angelo State University Rams. Weekend activities included an all-school pep rally, a barbecue cookout, a 10- kilometer road race, a bicycle race and a Frisbee golf tournament. Also, an "Almost Anything Goes" day was sponsored April 10 by the SA, the Hardin-Simmons University Student Congress and the Stu- dent Government of McMurry College. The SA participated in statewide stu- dent government when Brad Cheves, a sophomore finance major, represented ACU at the annual Association of In- dependent Students of Texas convention at Baylor University in Waco.

He said the Student Foundation members asked themselves, '5What can we start that the next years can build on?" Their answer was "Carnival Island," which took place Oct. 31 in conjunction with other Homecoming activities. Zahodnik said the idea for the carnival was patterned after the annual projects of student organizations at the University of Indiana and Baylor University. Although the carnival seemed to appeal to people of all ages, "Carnival Island" was primarily for the children of alumni who attended Homecoming. Carnival booths with cookie decorating, a sponge toss, putting greens, a clam dig and other events were sponsored by various clubs and classes on campus. After the carnival Student Foundation members served the Homecoming barbecue luncheon. In fact, it seemed that Student Founda- tion members got a lot of experience serv- ing meals during the year. In addition to serving the thousands who attended the Homecoming barbecue, they cooked and served another meal for students at High School Day, and at the was to help recruit students to ACU, said Zahodnik. They helped plan many of the activities and made visitor housing ar- rangements for High School Day and Junior-Senior Day. A recruiting committee assisted admis- sions personnel by calling and sending in- formation to prospective students. Student Foundation members frequent- ly spoke at various admissions functions throughout the state, and when visitors came to campus, members took them on tours of the campus and acted as am- bassadors for the school, said Zahodnik. "We became such an active group," said Zahodnik, adding that they were able to become so involved because they used the summer to plan the year's events, and that the group was willing to participate, well- organized and hard-working.

Student Foundation SPA bu s DT, gets SPJ charter The Student Press Association, a mostly dormant organization last year, became more involved in activities to promote journalism. The association met President Linde Thompson's goal of becoming more active by establishing a charter with the Society of Professional Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi. Mike Hammer, the Region 8 SPJ, SDX director from Oklahoma City, of- ficially inducted about 35 mass com- munication majors into the national organization April 9. SPA continued the at-least-30-year tradition of publishing the Hello Book, the campus directory. This year the group pro- duced an 8-by-ll directory with a full- color cover. The club purchased a video display ter- minal for the mass communication divi- sion. SPA also sponsored a workshop with Dana Blocker, retired editor ofthe Sher- man Democrat who spoke at the Mass Communication Proseminar during Homecoming week. The organization also helped fund the annual mass communication awards ban- quet, April 9. SPA provided S100 checks for Doug Mendenhall, recipient of the Wendell H. Bedichek Award for the outstanding student journalist, Suzetta Nutt, recipient of the Horizons Award for outstanding graphic achievement, and Kel- ly Deatherage, recipient of the Mass Com- munication Grade Point Average Award. SPA members attended conventions of the Texas Intercollegiate Press Associa- tion, the Southwestern Journalism Con- gress and SPJ, SDX. In April nine SPA members competed in TIPA contests in San Angelo. Thompson summarized the year's ac- tivities as "alphabet soup," saying she was glad the SPA was in the TIPA and the SPJ,SDX.

TSEA helps educator of future A university president, a man who teaches classes that encourage young peo- ple to lead positive lives, and a marriage and family counselor each spent an eve- ning talking to students about important teachers in their lives. The students were members of ACU's chapter of the Texas Student Education Association. In November, Dr. Paul Faulkner, director of the Marriage and Family Institute, talked to TSEA about the teachers who made the biggest impres- sion on his life. Two months later William J. Teague, ACU president, spoke on the same subject, and in March, Willard Tate, associate pro- fessor of health, physical education and recreation, told TSEA members about his favorite teachers. The group invited the speakers as a way to achieve its main goal of providing future teachers with professional activities that also were personally enriching. Members of TSEA also heard Charlotte Van Eaton Bishop, a 1981 ACU education graduate, describe some of the struggles she encountered in her first year as an Abilene elementary school teacher. Some club members also attended the March 5-7 annual TSEA convention in Houston. In addition to the chance to learn from and about teachers, TSEA membership also allowed education majors the chance to receive several benefits. Members were able to purchase at group rates a Sl million insurance policy to cover them while they were student teaching. Students also were eligible to receive several education periodicals. Dita Keesee, a junior from Lubbock, served as TSEA president. Other officers were Gale Yelman, junior from LaMesa, Calif., vice president, Ellen Porter, junior from Thousand Oaks, Calif., secretary, and Donna Marie Claassen, junior from Groom, treasurer.

TSEA 271 S mphonic Band tour anhandle During the last part of the fall semester, while the Big Purple was still marching, some of the members of that organization began to prepare for auditions for the Symphonic or Concert bands. John Whitwell, director of the Big Pur- ple and conductor of the two bands, said, "The Symphonic Band is made up of the advanced and more experienced musicians and is the more professional groupfl Whitwell estimated that 90 people audi- tioned Nov. 30-Dec. 8 for places in Sym- phonic Band, but only 70 were chosen. "Those who weren't chosen for Sym- phonic Band, or those who did not want to audition, were automatically placed in Concert Bandfl he said. "No one is exclud- ed from Concert Band." In addition to three concerts at ACU, for five days during April the band toured cities in the Texas Panhandle, as well as two Colorado cities. Although preparing for the concerts re- quired a great deal of time, students had contact with individuals involved in the music profession. Elizabeth A. H. Green and H. Robert Reynolds visited ACU during the spring semester. Green, professor emeritus of music from the University of Michigan, conducted a band rehearsal and guest- taught the ACU conducting class. Reynolds, director of bands at the University of Michigan, and president of College Band Directors National Associa tion, led a band rehearsal, taught a con ducting workshop. "Bringing nationally prominent peoplf to ACU to work with the band is a majo resource that should not be overlookedf Whitwell said.

So, the president said she tried to conduct more meetings and arrange more programs. In March members met for a brown bag luncheon with Peggy Teague. Ferguson said Mrs. Teague related some of her travels and experiences as wife of ACU president Dr. William J. Teague. Kay McGlothlin spoke at the April lun- cheon meeting. Mrs. McGlothlin, former ACU student and wife of Board of Trustees chairman Ray McGlothlin, spoke about W Club activities when she was a member. Her remarks gave members ideas for future years, their president said. The women's honor organization con- tinued its reunions for former members with a morning tea Oct. 3l during Homecoming weekend and a dinner during Lectureship. Contributions from alumni and funds from a Carnation sale allowed the club to erase a S50 deficit and award a S200 scholarship to Merry Bruton, a junior English major. Ferguson said Bruton was chosen by W Club's l98l-82 and 1982-83 officers from applicants nominated by academic depart- ment heads.

Barnes, who was Delta Theta social club's biddie master in charge of pledge classes, said the club inducted several more members than in recent years f 24 bid- dies in the fall semester and 21 in the spring. The number of women pledging Delta Theta reflected the clubis changed image, Barnes said. f'Our reputation is no longer what it used to be." She explained that Delta Theta had been known as a party club, but that current members were work- ing to change that reputation. Kelly Miller, a DT and a senior mass communication major, agreed that the club's image had changed. She said the fall pledge class especially helped change the club's reputation. 'fThey were a group of precious, precious Christian girls," Miller said. "I wish I had longer to be in club with them." Barnes said she would now describe the club, one of the smaller women's clubs, as "a bunch of girls who really care about each other and pretty much stick together." But she added, f'We're not real cliquishf' Another change in club that Barnes noted was a different emphasis in in- tramural competition. She said the club members participated in intramurals with their primary goal being fun rather than victories. However, led by Kelly McGlothlin, in- tramural director, the club still did very well in competition with other women's social clubs. Delta Theta placed second in football, volleyball, basketball, the swim meet and waterball, in which women com- peted this year forthe first time.

The club also won the women's division of the intramural rodeo. Alisa Willis, junior Delta Theta member from Graham, received the All-Around Cowgirl honors in the spring rodeo. Another Delta Theta also won in rodeo competition, but in a different way. Fara Page, junior agriculture business major from Greeley, Colo., received the Miss West Texas Rodeo title in early September. Throughout the year the club of about 50 women participated in a variety of other activities. The women competed against members of other clubs in the fall blood drive for the Meeks Blood Bank and donated more pints of blood than any other social club. For every pint donated in the December blood drive, Christian Homes of Abilene re- ceived a S25 credit on the hospital bills of the women and children from the home. The club conducted an Oct. 31 Homecoming breakfast for DT members and alumni at the Woman's Club of Abilene. In the afternoon the club par- ticipated in the Student Foundation's "Carnival Island,', a series of game booths designed especially for the children of returning alumni. Members of Delta Theta rented a mechanical bull and let visitors try their luck at rodeoing, urban- cowboy style. In the early part of the spring semester the club worked at being devilish angels for their Sing Song performance, "The Metamorphosis of Mephistophelesf' The presentation was created and directed by senior Delta Theta member, Michelle Bax- ter, elementary education major from Lubbock. Club members and their dates attended four socials. To carry out the fall grub's "Fantasy Island" theme, couples came dressed as someone or something they would like to be. The spring grub social, conducted in a gym, was called "Let,s Get Physical." Members and dates dressed as athletes. The club also had two formal socials. A Christmas social featured a reception in McGlothlin's parents' southside Abilene home and dinner at the Abilene Club. In April members andetheir dates traveled to Fort Worth for a social at the Hilton Hotel. The couples also had a reception at the home of DT Rhonda Staples and visited the Fort Worth zoo. Delta Theta 277 GA TA President notes club closeness To some students the women of GATA social club may have had the reputation of being wild and crazy, said Nancy Chester, GATA president. But, she continued "lt's hard to stereotype GATA. Wild and crazy may be our stereotype, but the wild and crazy people just show up the most. We have quiet ones . . . too." Nancy said she valued the diversity of the women in the club and their ability to 'Lblend together and get along . . . lt seems like we have girls from each end of the spectrum and everywhere in between." 6'One thing l see in GATA is the closeness," she said. "For me it's a time that I can get together with this group of friends, where people are willing to work together and work through problems." She said being a part of the club, which included approximately 100 women, helped her improve her communication skills. Another important benefit that she mentioned was the involvement with so many people through social club activities. "lt broadens your sphere of influence. lt also gives people that maybe need to come out of their shells an opportunity. lt adds to peoplels self-confidence." Nancy described a good prospective GATA member as someone who already was involved in school activities and wasn't afraid to be challenged. After becoming GATA's, members con- tinued their participation in school and community activities as well as club func- tions. Lana Hall played Nellie Forbush, the female lead in "South Pacific," the Homecoming musical, Nancy Chester and Dita Keesee were Sing Song hostessesg and Susan Mitchell won the Miss Abilene contest. Members of GATA worked together to assist Meals on Wheels, a service project that provided hot noon meals for elderly shut-ins.

In their Sing Song performance called "Girls Scout Boys of America," wedding veils appeared from under Boy Scout berets at the end of the GATAS' per- formance.

GATA received first place in the women's social club division for costumes, first place for originality and second place in the vocal competition. The club competed in several intramural sports and earned second place in badmin- 3 19? A ' ton and a berth in the semifinal football competition. During Homecoming the club sponsored a mother and daughter tea, a breakfast for present and past members of GATA and a sponge throw booth for small children at the carnival. Youngsters threw wet sponges at GATA's who stuck their faces through a background prop. Approximately 36 women joined the club as pledges in the fall or spring. The pledges planned the grub socials, prepared the food and provided entertainment. The fall grub social theme was "Little Kids," -t, rf, l and the spring grub was called "Anchors Aweighf' The club also had a country and western Christmas social in Abilene and a spring social in Fort Worth. At the spring social some of the closeness Nancy talked about was evident. Before the event the club collected money for a plane ticket for Judy Heady's boyfriend to come from Nashville, Tenn., to Fort Worth. Then at the end of the social, Judy, a senior from Madison, Tenn., and Zeborah Pendergrass, a senior from El Paso, announced their engagements. l GATA 279 , - Z YW Kappa Delian Shri Members call newest club my ,gt - E I l g' I 280 W Kappa Delian Shri FRONT ROW: Karen Wilson, Vickie Patterson, .lan Kelly Davis, Amy Withers, Tanya Hargrove, Gail Dug gan.

But, said Athena Stevens, junior from Yoakum and club treasurer, "lt's not like ave're trying to be separate. We think we're 1 little bit different, but not so different ghat welre not a club, too." Charter member Amy Withers, junior from Fillon, Mont., said she believed members were closer because the club was founded only the year before. "We know where our roots are," she added. Those roots lay, Stevens said, in the spring of 1980 with a group of women con- cerned about the number of students being rejected by clubs they pledged. But this year, Withers said, Kadies had to cope with conflict over whether to ac- cept every woman who wanted to be in the club or to reject some "like all the other clubs do." In the end, she said, the club ac- FRONT ROW: Sharon Mitchell, Anita Young, Juane Heflin, Sandara Kitt. ROW 2: Robbie McCauley, Brenda Henry, Elizabeth Latham.

Denise Dodson, senior office administra- tion major and KDS secretary, introduced the club to the children's home where her parents were houseparents. During the Christmas season the social club sent gifts to one child the home's staff identified as having particular needs, Withers said. In the spring about half the clubls members spent a weekend with the children. Stevens said the trip taught club members. "We didn't realize how lucky we weref' she said. "Those kids have been through so much that we don't even think about." In February Kadies turned their atten- tion from the young to the old. Club members made and delivered personalized Valentine cards to the residents of Happy Haven Nursing Home. Through the year KDS members min- gled their service projects with social and school activities. After Sing Song the in- itials "KDS" became almost inter- changeable with "M8cMs,' as the club per- formed as the candies that melted in your heart, not in your hand. Stevens said the women were excited about participating in Sing Song. Although she said members would have loved to have won, "our main thing right now is to show that we are a club, and we can compete." However, Stevens said close friendships, rather than intramurals or Sing Song, were the most important aspect of club for her and for most Kadies. "We just enjoy being with each other," she concluded. This page: top - Members of Kadies practice for Sing Songj bottom - Kappa Delian Shri social club members.

Kappa Delian Shri Ko Jo Kai ' ittle club of women' expand , Ko .Io Kai, Japanese for "little club of women," amended its constitution to ex- pand membership from 85 to 100 women. "We expanded our membership to allow more girls to pledge. As it was, we would have only been able to induct about 10 new members and we wanted a larger pledge class," said Helen Shollenbarger, Kojie secretary and senior marketing major. In- stead the club admitted 27 Nu Nus in the fall and 30 in the spring class. "Club has been more fun this year because of more participation from more members," said Janet Kellogg, president and senior biology major from Wichita Falls. "We have had more activities for club unity, especially since we increased our membership." One activity that the club began in the early 1970's was resumed this year. Each week of the school year Winnie Gibbs, associate dean of students, received cards, homemade cookies, flowers and other small gifts from members of Ko Jo Kai. Jerelene Fulks, longtime Kojie spon- sor, said the club members "wanted to let her CMrs. Gibbsj know they appreciated her position and her efforts for the whole campus as well as for the clubs." Kellogg said the club tried to enhance its l spiritual aspect by organizing breakfast prayer groups to bring the club members closer to each other and closer to God. Eight groups of about 10 club members met at 7 or 7:15 a.m. three or four times in the fall for discussions, prayers or devotionals. Melanie Pledger, club chaplain and l senior from Corpus Christi, said the l breakfast meetings were a Hgood way to 1 start off the morning. You can meet in club Wednesday night with 60 to 70 girls, but with the breakfast groups you get to know a few of them bet- 1 ter, to know what they're dealing with." l I This page: top - Ko Jo Kai president l Janet Kellogg reflects the "Jungle Book" X theme ofthe spring Nu Nu Grubg bottom ' . l W left - Discussion in a club meeting at- tracts vice president Cindy F enner's atten- tion,' bottom right f Lori Waters, a member ofthefall pledge class, carries an armload of books across campus.

The Kojies' iarathon jump roping earned the associa- on 3200. The Homecoming breakfast, an annual rent for current and returning members, took place at Briarstone Manor in Oc- tober. Also during Homecoming, Kojies ran a fishing booth, "Kojie Cove," as part of the Student Foundation's carnival. In the 1982 Sing Song, Ko Jo Kai per- formed " gShuttle Calling Houston: We Are Experiencing Technical Difficultiesf or 'How do You Drive This Thing'." Jean Vanderslice, a junior geology major from Abilene, directed the women astronauts. During Sing Song weekend the Kojies honored their mothers at a tea in the Gard- ner dormitory parlor. The club also participated in in- tramurals. Kojies won the Division Il basketball championship in the spring and also played to the semifinals in football. Fund-raising activities for the year in- cluded Current stationery sales, bake sales and car washes. Much of the money raised was used for club socials.

Ko Jo Kai- 283 Sigma Theta Chi oeial club examines purpose The women of Sigma Theta Chi strug- gled with conflicts about the purpose of their organization as a social club at a Christian university. "A lot of girls become members of a club thinking it will be a spiritual high," said Lisa McFarlin, president. "But realistically Siggies is a social club. Chris- tianity is a major part of club f and should be -e but club is not church." Lisa said she believes a club is a social event for men or women who like being together and having fun with each other. , "But we began falling away from having t a good time because we weren't following our purpose and traditions. And we were mistreating our Squigs tSiggie pledgeslf' Lisa said. r So before the Christmas holidays Sig- gies met in small groups for breakfast. "At those meetings members talked among themselves about changes needing to be made f especially in the treatment of Squigsf' said Judy Sims, a senior member. Each member evaluated the club at the beginning of the spring semester. Their evaluations indicated that the women wanted to be more fair to the pledges, to follow traditions and to be more unified. One of the ways Siggies united during the spring semester occurred when more than 100 women wanted to participate in Sing Song. but Sing Song rules allowed on- ly l0O. To solve the problem the ll club officers dropped out so all other members could participate. "We decided we would just have to work together," Lisa said. "But it was hard to give it up, being a senior and all." However, almost every officer was able to perform, because other members dropped out for different reasons. And the spirit of togetherness produced a first place This page: top e Ann Ellis and Pam Hamm, left, Jane Boldin and Kay Car- riker, right, tease with their dates at the Siggies spring grub soeialp bottom f Dur- ing a soeial at Abilene State Park, Lynda Packer feeds Greg Eaks.

"The Sing Song experience definitely ightened Siggies as a group," said Kay arriker, Siggies' Inter-Social Club Coun- il representative. "Club was a trying ex- erience for me during the fall semester, ut now everything seems more friendly nd more fun. The majority of the embers have better attitudes about what plub is and are not as wrapped up in strict ules, but want to follow tradition," she said in the spring. "Of course," said Lisa, "some traditions have changed in 12 years, but we are going to keep the ones that are important to everyone." One tradition Siggies continued was participation in service projects each year. Suzanne Levy, Siggies' Keeper of the Key, organized several services. Two such pro- jects were taking care of an underprivi- leged family from Abilene and cooperating with Kinsmen to escort boys from the Abilene Boys Home to a football game. Another tradition Siggies followed was K FRONT ROW - Pam Keese, Diana Hamby, Kelli Mack, Mitzi Balios, Shelley Sparks, Lisa McFarlin, Mary inn Hampton, DeeAnne Nolan.

"And we have a lot of fun -just ask any of the lucky guys who have gone!" "Seriously," Lisa said, 'gSiggies as a club is a lot of fun, but we also have our minds toward God. With the right leader- ship and direction we will continue to grow in the Lord and get better." F 'V ' L Sigma Theta Chi 285 Zeta Rho Alpha Club helps conduct sport da The women of Zeta Rho Alpha began the year by working with the men of Frater Sodalis to sponsor Sportstacular, a money-raising event for Abilene Christian Elementary School. The social club members supervised ACES students who participated in various sporting events such as foot races, wheelbarrow races and a Frisbee-throwing contest. "It was a lot of fun for the kids and for us," said Kendra Gilbert, junior accounting major from Amarillo. Becky Parker, a junior marketing major from Albuquerque, N.M., described the October event as "a good opportunity to get to know not only people from ACU, but also people from the community." Terry Touchstone, a local Realtor, coor- A a'ltl M 5 T dinated the event, which local businessmen helped sponsor. Also in October, Zetas won the booth contest at the Student Foundation's 2 Homecoming carnival. The Zeta booth was a Cookie Hut where visitors decorated cookies, and the best decorated confection won its creator 575. Before the school year began, the club made efforts to attract more pledges for the fall semester. Approximately 50 women who had received letters from club members during the summer attended a "Garden Party" rush in the Campus Z.. . X' l i Center. Each of the women who attended 5' received a small plant as a favor. "We worked really hard in the summer ff writing letters to get a lot of pledges to build the club up," said Susan Rohre, a junior elementary education major from Lubbock. L'And we were real pleased with the number of girls who came to the rush." A ""5"' e Of the 50 women who attended the fall rush, l2 became Alphas, or Zeta pledges. Five women joined the club as spring semester pledges. The pledges and old members entered a basketball team in intramural competition for the first time in the clubfs history. The team earned a 2-2 record and played to the semifinals of the tournament. ww This page: During a spring meeting Zeta president Charlotte Anderson turns to answer a question.

"We did great considering it was our first time to have a team," said Gilbert. Zeta also competed in intramural foot- ball, volleyball and softball. During the spring semester the club sold Banana Grams during Sadie Hawkins Week to raise money. The Banana Grams, bananas with a message written on them, were purchased by students for friends and delivered by members of Zeta Rho Alpha. The club earned approximately S20 in the edible endeavor. Much of the spring' semester was devoted to Sing Song preparations. In their performance titled "The Can-Can Girls" the women of Zeta appeared as trash cans that became hobos and then garbagemen, all in four minutes. "We had a lot of funf' said Gilbert, Zeta's Sing Song director, "and I think we did an excellent jobf' Zeta president Charlotte Anderson pointed out a difference between Zeta and other women's social clubs. 5'We're a smaller club," she said, "and we're glad we're smaller." But, she added, Zeta's small size limits its ability to com- pete in Sing Song with clubs that can put 100 women on stage. "So we do it Cparticipate in Sing Songj to have a good time and to put on a good show," said Anderson, a senior elementary education major from Anson. Zeta ended the fall semester with a Christmas social at Old Abilene Town. After dinner Zetas and their dates went to Hillcrest Church of Christ, where they played games and awaited the arrival of Santa Claus. When he arrived, Santa brought stockings filled with gifts for the Zetas' dates. The club ended the spring semester with a trip to Waco for its spring social. The evening's activities were in a historic man- sion that after dinner became a mock gambling casino equipped with blackjack tables, craps and roulette. At the end of the evening the two "gamblers,' with the most chips received backgammon sets. "We tried to gear the entertainment toward the guysf, Parker said, "and I think they really enjoyed it." Also at the social, Scott Lenhart, junior psychology major from Clearfield, Penn., was named Zeta Beau for helping club members with intramurals and their prize-winning Homecoming booth. Zeta Rho Alpha 287 Centurion Sing Song, intramural awards Centurion achieved recognition as "a real club" after its third year on campus, its president Mike Maxwell concluded at the end of the school year. Maxwell, a senior from Garland, cited the club's second place finish in Sing Song vocal competition, its intramural victories and its many members who were school and church leaders as evidence that the newest men's club was "here to stay." Centurion won its Sing Song award by appearing as 36 pairs of Siamese twins. Centurion had more people participating than any other menls club with the possible exception of Sub T-16, whose number varied from performance to performance. Among the members Maxwell men- tioned who participated in activities other than club were Bart Castle, a senior from Lubbock who served as the Students' Association president, and David Baker, a junior from Abilene who performed as a Sing Song host. Several Centurion members also worked with local Church of Christ congregations. David Ingram, Centurion member and senior from Brazil, mentioned as examples Danny Mann, a senior from Harlingen who often led singing for the Hillcrest con- gregationg Jim and Bob Brown, brothers who were active in the Hamby churchg and Mike McDonald, a biblical studies major who preached for a small congregation outside of Abilene. "We're pretty proud of them," Ingram said. Centurion also was proud of its members who were on the football team, Ingram said.

During the rest of the year, Centurion iarticipated in traditional club activities. The club ,inducted pledges, worked in Homecoming activities and participated in social activities with other clubs. Members showed two movies, "Shenandoah" and "Creature from the Black Lagoon," a 3-D feature that was popular with students. The club also conducted socials. Members and their dates attended a Western fall grub social at Abilene State Park near Buffalo Gap and a Christmas party at the Windsor Hotel. But the club ended the year with an extravagant trip to Dallas where about 60 couples attended a reception at the home of one of the members, ate in the Hyatt Regency's revolving restaurant atop the motel's Re- union Tower and spent the night in Dallas. Also in the spring semester the club won the intramural swim meet and placed first in the All School Day track meet's club division. However, Maxwell said the year was not solely one of victories and honors. "We've had our problems on the intramural field and a few problems among ourselves," he said. But those problems, he said, signified growth and so were encouraging instead of discouraging. lONT ROW - Jim Foster, Dennis Driskell, Don Denman, Bart Castle, John Mahaffey, Neil Reece, Keith 'nold.

With this sound the men of Frater Sodalis honored the insect in Sing Song 1982 with their "Ode to the Fly." And the flies proved good to the Frats! Judges awarded the social club first place finishes in all areas of competition - originality, costume and vocal. For the sixth time since Sing Song began in 1956, Frater Sodalis took all first places. "All the guys wanted it real bad so they put a lot of time and effort into it, which is what it takes to win," said David Roach, Sing Song director and senior education major from Abilene. Besides Sing Song, the Frats also were involved in service projects for the com- munity. Club members worked to help vic- tims of the extensive Columbus Day flooding. The Taylor County chapter of the Red Cross presented an award to Frater Sodalis recognizing its members for the participation in evacuating, sheltering and relocating flood victims. Frats were the first organization to be honored as a group by the chapter. Frats cooperated with the women of Zeta Rho Alpha to sponsor the children of Abilene Christian Elementary School in a field day called "SportsTacular." Terry Touchstone, a local Realtor, again coor- dinated the annual program, an afternoon of athletic contests. Money raised from donations and pledges to the children was spent on school supplies for ACES. The club also participated in in- tramurals. Frats fielded three teams in flag football competition and entered three in spring basketball games. Two Frat teams competed in volleyball, finishing fairly high in the standings.

The Frats again had three main events hat had been club traditions for several fears, said Rodney Smith, vice president ind senior computer science major from Naco. One of the events was the fall grub ocial called HayLay, where the members and their dates wore western clothes, ate dinner while sitting on bales of hay and watched a program performed by the Brats, the club pledges. The club had the cookout on a plateau in the hills southwest of the Abilene State Park. In the spring semester the Frats, their dates and their sponsors traveled to Garner State Park for a weekend camping trip. The club's third traditional event was its annual Hawaiian Luau late in the spring. "Frats have always had great traditions and it's hard to live up to the past," said Jeff Craig, president and senior political science major from Abilene. "But I believe the guys this year have set a new standard for years to come . . . although social clubs get a lot of criticism, I don't believe I could have been involved with a greater group of people while I was at ACU." "Our main goal," said Tim Stephens, the club's Brat Dad and senior manage- ment major from Temple, "is to promote lasting friendships between club members, have a good time and be of service while we're here." .t S.

Members cited interpersonal relation- ships as a valuable aspect of the club. "You get to know people you wouldn't ordinarily get to be friends with, especially the older guys," said Steve Gilbert, junior from Oklahoma City, Okla. Nelson Coates, senior from Abilene, said one thing he especially appreciated about being a member of Galaxy was "get- ting to spend time with guys just doing crazy things you wouldn't normally do with studying and all." "One of the things I enjoyed most," said Jonathas Tchen, junior biology major, "was meeting and getting to be friends with the new pledges while still having a good time harassing them." Ron McCommas, senior from Abilene, said, "Club is a great way to get involved on campus and is really a good way to enrich your time at ACU." Another thing he said he enjoyed was "the good old Galaxy handshake!" The handshake McCommas mentioned required members to entertwine little fingers as they shook hands. Charles Pullen, senior from Dallas, said active, in- active and old club members use the hand- shake upon meeting. "I had a guy at Garland Road fChurch of Christ in DallasJ," Pullen said, "try to do it to me, and he's been out of club about three years."

Galaxy represented striking baseball players and airline pilots in its Sing Song performance, "Strike Me, Strike Me." For the first time in several years, the club received no Sing Song awards. After dressing like baseball players and pilots for Sing Song, members of Galaxy dressed like punk rockers for a grub social and dressed formally for a social in San Antonio late in the spring semester. In mid-March members of Galaxy 3 helped the staff of the Day Care Center fo the Elderly move into a new facility a 3518 S. Seventh. The club also helped sup port the Spring Break Campaign to Miam by contributing money and sending som members to work in the evangelisti outreach there. In the fall semester the club conducted 4 Hawaiian luau social.

The theme, which Kinsmen carried out by appearing as sunny-side-up eggs and toast with jelly, was good enough for a second place finish in the costume com- petition. Norman Taylor, club secretary and senior marketing major from Dallas, said the award did more than just build club morale. "I think it's great,', he said, "that people in some other clubs paid S45 for their costumes, and we just got an old sheet and got second placef, But "The Breakfast of Champions" also seemed to foretell an event that had not happened since the club was chartered 14 years before - Kinsman III won an in- tramural basketball game. Club President Mark Ray, senior pre- dental major from Dallas, said that by the season's end the third team, which never before had won, was victorious in two games. The Kinsmen green and gold also had good luck on the intramural volleyball court where the club took first place in social club competition and advanced to the semifinals of the playoffs before being eliminated. Members of Kinsmen took on two unusual fund-raising projects to finance club socials and other projects. One weekend in February turned out to be a real gas for Kinsmen as the club assisted E-Z Serve, Inc., in the grand open- ing of the company's new gasoline station on North First. Club members helped direct traffic and pumped nearly 70,000 gallons of gas for customers lined up to buy the less-than-a-dollar-a-gallon fuel. The men did such good jobs as "petroleum transfer engineers" that E-Z Serve gave them a 25 percent bonus in ad- dition to the money they originally agreed to work for, Taylor said. l This page: Unusual makeup and costumes, like these Dwayne Shults, left, Charles Ratcliff and Michael 0'Quinn wear, were commonplace at Kinsmen meetings.

Kinsmen also participated in a project to help prove that sometimes getting involved with plastic money can pay. The club was paid to distribute credit card applications for Dillard's Department Stores. Another group project the men par- ticipated in was the American Heart Association's Jump-Rope-A-Thon in March. They were able to raise about S300 for the association. Kinsmen participated in other projects to aid Abilene residents. Twice they sang at nursing homes - once with their dates for the Christmas social and another time with the women of Ko Jo Kai social club. Also, members of Kinsmen and GATA took a group from the Abilene Boys Ranch to a Wildcat basketball game in Moody Coliseum. In the fall semester Kinsmen received the second place award for Homecoming projects. The club project, run by Kinsmen dressed as South Seas pirates, allowed con- testants to try to scale a rope that ran from the ground to the ship's makeshift crow's next. In the nest was a S5 bill, incentive for those attempting the climb. One of the highlights of the spring semester was the spring social, conducted in April on the San Antonio River. A tradition unique to Kinsmen, the kilt party, occurred more often than usual this year, Taylor said. All club members who became engaged were honored, or dishonored, with a kilt party. The engaged member was first stripped of all pride - not to mention most clothing - by fellow Kinsmen members. He was then thrown into the GATA fountain and given a kilt, with which to clad himself. The kilted member was then dropped off on Washington Boulevard and had to run back to Gardner Dormitory, where his clothing awaited him in the arms of his fiancee. She was the light he saw at the end of a human tunnel, through which he had to run and come out of with his kilt still intact. But this, said Kevin Wasner, senior member of Kinsmen from Abilene, as well as all other Kinsmen activities, was done with the club motto in mind - "In Chris- tian Brotherhood." "After all," said Taylor, "that's what we're all about." Kinsmen 295 Sub T-I6 John C. Stevens' former club Sub T-16, untamed and unpredictable, participated in both a charity fund-raising event and in a "kidnapping" of Galaxy pledges in the club's 57th year of antics at ACU, Members of Sub T assisted local efforts in the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon to raise funds to help fight muscular dystrophy. Subbers helped other volunteers at the Mall of Abilene answer phone calls from people pledging money to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Later in the fall the club presented a special tribute to Chancellor John C. Stevens at the Oct. 3l Homecoming foot- ball game. Although all Homecoming ac- tivities were dedicated to Stevens, Sub T's tribute to the former Sub T member was much less ceremonious than most other weekend events. Club members drove the club's red "Gobmobile" around the foot- ball field during halftime with Sub T's answer to a Homecoming Queen posing on the hood of the pre-l970s station wagon. Also during Homecoming the club par- ticipated in the Homecoming Carnival with a weight-guessing booth. Jay Friddell, sophomore Subber said the booth's main purpose was "to embarrass girlsf' Another fall semester activity cost one Subber his pilot,s license. Sub T members "borrowed" a couple of Galaxy pledges and a plane, Friddell said, flew the pledges about 40 miles out of Abilene, left them on an old crop dusting air strip and returned the plane to its hangar. Another antic that caused the club some negative publicity occurred during Sing Song when members had the names of por- nographic movie stars printed in the Sing Song program as the people in charge of the club's costumes and choreography. However, Sub T's mischievousness wasn't immediately noticed. Also in the spring members and dates attended a 5'Jim Jones Jungle Boogiea' grub social. Sub T members continued their tradition of having low-cost socials, usually arranging socials that cost less than 510. Friddell said club members believed that a social's purpose was to have a good time, "not to show how much money you have." 296 Sub T-16 FRONT ROW 4 Mark Carver, Kirk Long, Brad Cranford, Frito Roetter, Jeff Perkins, Nathan Goudeal Dale Conder, Steve Sikes.

The club's policy on socials reflected Sub T's unpretentiousness and lack of jealousy, he said. The sophomore, who pledged the club in the spring, said he joined Sub T because "there's a closeness there that most clubs don't have. It's a real, real, real brotherhood.

"We decided we needed to change directions," said Con- nell, a senior public relations major, "and start going with the purposes of ACU better." To accomplish that goal the club planned several service projects for the spring semester. Club members worked for 26 Bean stu- dent workers in a "Bean Worker's Night Off." Members conducted a food and clothing drive for Christian Homes of Abilene and also gathered old Bibles and other reading materials for the Huntsville State Prison inmates. Trojans played members of Sub T-16 men's social club in a benefit basketball game for Spring Break Campaigns. In intramural competition Trojans placed first in football, waterball and Frisbee throwing. The club also conducted four socials. In the spring members attended a toga grub social. Their April social at Abilene State Park featured entertainment by Kim Younkin, a country musician. A Christmas social took place at the Fairway Oaks Golf and Racquet Club. At the club's first social of the year, a grub at Old Abilene Town, Mike Newhouse, vice president, and E. K. Hufstedler, president, did a comedy routine that featured jokes by Hufstedler and hair-styling tips by Newhouse. Although Hufstedler, a senior from Lubbock, was president most of the year, he resigned in early March. "We were in a kind of no-win situation, I thought, and I got tired of messing with it," he said. He added, "We were having some pro- blems -that was right after Sing Song - and it this resignationj kind of shut everything up." Hufstedler said he met with Beauchamp and Norman Archibald, associate dean of students, before he told the club he was resigning. "They said they didn't want me to do it, but ifI thought I had to, then to go ahead," he said. The senior said although he had not wanted to resign, he believed his resigna- tion helped the club. . 71 ' ',,- ' MW , . v ti. A .. :RONT ROW - Phil Marshall, Roger McMahan, Mike Funderberg, P. J.

Trojans 299 Inter-Social Club Council Club ' representatives discuss The Inter-Social Club Council, a group of representatives from each of the social clubs, continued its tradition of being an organization that did little or nothing. The ISCC originally was responsible for such things as disciplining clubs and pro- viding entertainment for the entire student body, said ISCC president Randy Tucker, senior from Fort Worth. But through the years, Tucker said, the organizationls responsibilities have been absorbed by the student services administration, the clubs themselves and the Students' Association. As a result, Tucker said, "It CISCCJ has become almost meaningless." Donna Gar- rett, junior representative from Zeta Rho Alpha, agreed with Tucker. "For years ISCC has just been a name,', she said. "It's hard to think of things to do that another organization is not already doing." But, she added, the group was more active this year than in past years. Most of the council's activity came dur- ing Homecoming weekend, Oct. 30-31. During Homecoming the ISCC provid- ed funds for the plants that decorated the stage area in Moody Coliseum where the Homecoming Court was seated during Fri- day's Chapel service. ISCC members also prepared a display for the Campus Center that honored Dr. John C. Stevens, to whom all Homecoming activities were dedicated. The display featured a large photograph of Stevens and the logos of each club on a 4-foot-high-by- 4-foot-wide-by-6-inch-deep wooden display. The council worked later in the fall to revise its constitution. One proposal the council discussed involved the minimum grade point average required of any social club member. Some council members sug- gested changing the requirement from 2.0 to 1.97. One argument often advanced for the change was that the registrar's office rounded up any GPA between 1.95 and 1.99 to 2.0. If the registrar's office follow- ed that practice, several social club members argued, so should the ISCC. Winnie Gibbs, associate dean of students, said the council resolved the situation by agreeing to leave the 2.0 minimum GPA requirement in the ISCC,s constitution, but to use the registrar's method of determining what constituted a 2.0. The new practice became effective in the spring, she said. The council's fall activities, followed by frequent fits of inactivity, could be viewed from a positive outlook, its president said. One of the roles the council was intend- ed to play was that of mediator of arguments and problems between social clubs. Tucker said he thought the council's inactivity was a good sign that the clubs got along well through the year.

"We wanted to let then know that we recognized them as a club.' Kendall Young, one of the new club': representatives to ISCC, said he received 2 very positive response from members oi other clubs at the meeting.

By-laws notwithstanding, you could tell which clubs were brother and sister clubs by whom members invited to socials.

After all it's pretty hard to find the ords to describe the family-like friend- tips you shared with your club brothers or sters. Dating was another blessing - perhaps mixed one - that no one talked about ther. One positive aspect for a woman in club as that you could always count on four xtes a year to your club's socials, even if Ju had to ask them yourself.

"It made me realize that the award was based on how you had to struggle and work for an education, and not on on-campus social involvement." Mary, an oral communication major from Cleburne, was a court reporter for two years and a legal secretary for eight years before coming to ACU to begin her education in June of 1979. Since that time she was not only a full-time student but also the secretary for the chemistry department.

Gary Thompson's 1982 re-election campaigng campaigned for Bob Armstrong, a Democratic candidate for governorg and was selected to be a delegate to the state Democratic convention in the fall of 1982. Her first opportunity to be involved in a political campaign came when President Carter came to Abilene in 1980. Mel Hailey, associate professor of government, assigned Mary to the White House Office press staff during Carter's visit. After that first taste of political involve- ment Mary said she began moving toward political communication.

And in January of 1983 she planned to enter the University of Texas at Austin to begin her graduate studies. "After 10 years, it was a real struggle to decide to come out here and go to school. I wish I could do something to encourage older women to come back to college, and have fun while they do it," she said. "I think I have enjoyed college more at 30 than I probably would have at 19 or 20." This page: Mary Wynn 328 Dean Adams Achievement Award FA- ,.

Trustees Award HIP aul aulknerz eacher of the Year 1 V71 ood teaching goes beyond ex- J plaining facts and figures, said 'aul Faulkner, professor of Bible and irector of the Institute of Marriage Nnd Family Studies, who was named lCU Teacher ofthe Year for 1982. Much more important, he believed, ras the teacher's role in motivating tudents to enjoy learning and to con- inue to learn. Said Faulkner, "When students have he desire, the motivation, and they now they're loved then no matter what level of abilities they have they now that there's still a significant lace for them in life." Although that "doesn't say much bout academics," Faulkner said he relieved that if he can "train them in hose kinds of social concerns, and then ive them motivation, they will be tudents all their lives." Faulkner admitted that his descrip- lon Qf a teacher is influenced by :aching at a Christian college. "The ole of a teacher as a motivator, a spark lug, someone who promotes curiosity - all that focuses on the person under Ihrist as a servant," he said. This difference in faculty and tudents is what makes ACU unique, 'aulkner contended. "If ACU is just another standard, :cular university then there's no reason Jr people sacrificing, parents sacrific- ig, faculty sacrificing for this school to xistf' Wposite page: Paul Faulkner, pro- essor of Bible and director of the In- Fitute of Marriage and Family tudies, smiles as he is introduced as 'eacher ofthe Year. The 1982 graduation exercises at which he was named Teacher of the Year were somewhat a family affair for Faulkner as his daughter Debbie re- ceived her master's degree. Faulkner also participated in the ceremonies by hooding the - master's degree candidates. This made the second time that more than one member of the Faulkner fami- ly was involved in an ACU graduation. In 1976 Faulkner was chosen by the senior class to speak at commencement. That year his wife received her master's degree, and Debbie received her bachelor's degree. Faulkner also has a daughter, Con- nie, who planned to enter ACU as a freshman in the fall of '82 and two sons, Von and Brad, who attended the University of Texas in Austin. Being named Teacher of the Year was "the top honor," Faulkner said. s'I don't know if I deserve it, but I don't know anybody who appreciates it more." The academic council selected Faulkner from student and faculty nominations. And President William J. Teague presented Faulkner a check for S1,000. Some of Faulkner's career goals in- cluded getting the Marriage and Family Institute accredited by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. He also planned to write another book and to do some videotapes through the Institute for use in Bible classes. Some of the topics the videotapes would cover were marriage, family, pre- marriage, courtship, old age, stress and other "practical" matters. Faulkner said he also was in the pro- cess of revising the 6th edition of the Marriage Enrichment Seminar. He and Carl Brecheen, professor of Bible, have presented the seminars in 26 states and two foreign countries since 1974. In May 1980 the seminar was filmed and made into a series of eight 45- by Robin Ward minute films. He also planned to work some more on the material for the large freshman Bible class he teaches. "Those are my special students," he said. Faulkner joined the ACU faculty as a Bible professor in 1957, was dean of men from 1958-65 and has served as director of the Marriage and Family In- stitute since it began three years ago. He received the B.S. from ACU in 1952 and the M.S. in 1961. He earned the M.R.E. and Ed.D. from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, and has done post-doctoral training with the American Institute of Family Relations and at Pepperdine University. Faulkner was a member of the American Psychological Association and was a clinical member and approv- ed supervisor ofthe American Associa- tion of Marriage and Family Therapy. In January he was elected to the board of the Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. He also has served as a minister for Churches of Christ in Kansas, North Carolina and Texas.

Freshmen began preparing in September for Freshman Follies, an annual Homecoming variety show. By the time the class presented three perfor- mances Oct. 30 and three more Oct. 31, about 500 freshmen had participated in some way. Like most freshman classes, the class of 1985 ex- perienced a high attrition rate between the fall and spring semesters as the number of students classified as freshmen in the spring fell to 983, a decrease of 308. Also typical of most freshman classes, many 1981 freshmen weren't sure what their college major would be. Registrar's office records for the fall semester showed 293 class members with a major of "undecid- ed" or "unreported" The most popular majors for 338 Freshmen those who declared one were business, 3373 education, 141g and health professions, 102. The class received attention in the fall semester when the Optimist reported that only 27 freshman students majored in Bible as compared with 45 in the year before. Two of the 27 freshman Bible majors joined three senior women as the only female Bible majors. Members of the freshman class represented 32 states and included 10 students from foreign countries. But 594 freshmen, were Lone Star state residents.

Be sure that gets in, will you?" So opened an interview with Belinda D'Costa of London, briefly Switzerland and one generation from India. Belinda, a freshman psychology major, claimed that she had been pegged as Latin American, Italian, "Mexican with a British accent" and almost anything but what she is. What she is, is Anglo-Indian, a member of a select group from Indian society that was absorbed into the British leading class during Britain's col- onization of India. Eventually, they achieved a status among the Britons that alienated them from their own countrymen. Belinda, who was born in London, said she loves England, but thinks "it's going downhill. There's a lot of racism. For instance, I was walking home one day and kids shouted 'Hey Paki! Go homel' Do you know what that's like?" So how did an Anglo-Indian from London end up majoring in psychology in a private university in West Texas? Belinda said she came to ACU because she had "heard about the green grass, many trees and warm sunshinef' Then she added, "Seriously, because I wanted to study in a Christian college." She learned of ACU from John Howard, an ACU student who par- ticipated in a 1979 summer mission campaign in England. She entered the United States with a student visa, but said she had no restrictions on what she did, "just that I'll be a good student." During holidays Belinda stayed with her U.S. guardians, the Earl Tomlinsons in Dallas. Does she have any regrets about coming here? "Sometimes, when a research paper is overdue. But lim loving this place and its people . . . They keep me from running homef' The freshman who claimed that building relationships was her hobby said she "found real happiness here, thanks to a bunch of fun people live gotten to know." - Amy Hatfield CUMMI 'FR D'Costa, Belinda Dean, Andrea Decker, Rene Deeb, David Delaney, Laura Dennis, Alan Dennis, Debra Dennis, Maura Dawn Dennis, Mendy Derrick, John Dillard, Julia Dillingham, Lana Dodson, Julie Donaldson, Philip Doss, Karen Dotson, Autumn Dougherty, Donna Duncum, Mike Dunlap, Coyt Dunn, Kerry Duty, Donald Easdon, James Echols, David Edmonds, Donald Edwards, Dena Edwards, Jana Edwin, Karen Eller, Bob Eller, Linda Ellis, Cecile Ellis, Deanie Embry, James Emmert, Dana Emrie, Barbara Fairchild, Jeffry Scott Falconburg, Marvin Falk, David Farr, Gary Farrar, Lorrie Farrington, Lori Faver, LaRenda Felts, Julie Fender, Byron Fennel, Scott Finney, Robert Fiorc, Robert Fisher, Pamela Fisher, Si Les Fix, David Flannery, Lisa Fleming, Debbie Fleming, Kipi Fletcher, Paul Floyd, James Foster, Debra Foster, Gregory Fowler, Carrie Franco, Elizabeth Frank, Cynthia Franldin, Ola Fredrick, Melanie French, Valery Fruzia, Brent Fry, Elizabeth Freshmen 3 3 Funk, Deena Fuston, Leeanne Gage, Linda Garrett, Rick Gathright, Rocky George, Lisa Gerig, Kimberly Gibson, Kimberly Gibson, Lisa Gieseeke, Leon Givens, Lori Glass, Jeffrey Glover, James Glover, Kim Goldman, Laurie Gomez, Gina Gonzalez, Ben Goodner, Gwynn Goodrum, Scott Gordon, Greg Gordon, Teri Gower, Robin Gower, Valerie Graessle, Scott Graves, Deborah Gray, Andrea Gray, Brett Gray, Mary Greenlee, Jeanette Greenlee, John Greer, Gini Greer, Joe Grigsby, James Grow, Deborah Guesner.

"There is nothing to prevent you from stopping or slowing downf' But Karin Lambden, a freshman track and cross country team member from Castro Valley, Calif., has kept going. She placed first in the regional cross country meet, which ACU won with an almost perfect score. Despite that, Karin said, she enjoyed track more than cross country because the crowds at track meets encouraged her to do better. When she ran cross country she said she sometimes wanted to wail part of the way because she knew no one would see her. "Normally," Karin said, "Iam thinking about the pain I'm in, and I want to stopf, Karin didn't decide to be a runner until her junior year in high school. "The main reason I did start running was because we moved to a new high school, and I wanted to make friendsf, she said. "When I first started I was really crummy, but I wanted to be good at it." Her favorite event was the two-mile run, where her long stride was an ad- vantage. While she was a senior in high school, Karin won the two-mile race in the Northern California Meet of Champions, was sixth in the state meet and 10th in the nation. "I'm not really proud of what I've done yet. I'm still waiting around to see what I can dof' Karin said. She said coming to Texas and ACU was a big adjustment. In California she was used to running on hills and slopes, but in Abilene she got out of prac- tice because of the flat terrain. The track team practiced running on the slopes behind Sherrod Residential Park, "but it just isn't the same," Karin said. She competed against 200 women in the 1981 national cross country meet in Idaho and placed 26th, one spot away from All-American honors. What are her feelings about running after competing three years? "It's good but itis hard." - Kerry Dunn and Rene Williams DONALD PIERCE Middlcbrook, Bryan Miller, Gene Milligan, Leah Ann Mills, Traci Milner, Bill Mims, Mark Minor, Grace Minton, Terry Missildine.

Their preparation paid off as the sophomores won all three awards for classes A vocal, costume and originality - in the 26th annual production. In early March, class officers organized a party for sophomores to congratulate each other on their Sing Song victories. But although the class proved its musical prowess, very few sophomores majored in music. Instead the major that attracted the most sophomores, as well as the most members from any other class, was business. In the fall semester, 292 members of the class of 1983 majored in some area of business. The majors that attracted the fewest numbers of sophomores were foreign languages, criminal justice 354 Sophomores ,, W and recreation. However, 23 sophomores, mort students than in any other class, majored in all-leve physical education. All but four of those majors weri women. The sophomore class also had the distinction of hav ing the largest number of majors in the engineerin, physics degree that was created in the spring of 1981 Of the 38 students majoring in the field, 16 wer sophomores. Nine class members, including on woman, majored in general pre-engineering fields. This page: Sophomore class offcers, on table - Dou Durr, presidentg Brad Small, vice president.

"We are supposed to be hating each other, but people are people, and we can't.', Hollye's attitudes about people from different cultures came from growing up near Vienna, Austria, where her parents were missionaries. During her 18 years there she attended Austrian schools for four years and international schools for eight. In one international school, she said, "there were 66 students, and there were 23 nationalities represented. I learned so much about the different cultures." With an obvious look of love and perhaps a tinge of homesickness, Hollye described Austria as a land of rolling green hills, castles, meadows, old churches, palaces, parks, cafes and friendly down-to-earth people. For recreation in the small village where she lived, Holley skied in the fall and winter and hiked in the summer. "Every weekend we'd go tramping off through the vineyards and such," she said. Hollye said she was not aware of the socialist governmentis control until she prepared to move to Abilene and attend ACU, her parents' alma mater. She spent many hours filling out forms and requests to leave the country. "I would have just pulled right outf' she said. "Everything you do over there has to be documented." Hollye explained what she thought was the main difference between people of Austria and the United States: "Americans seem to put more time on out- ward beautyf' She mentioned jogging and appearance as examples. "The Austrians spend more time on inward beauty," she said. "They are just so relaxed and easy going? Hollye said it would be two years before she returns home. And, "yes," she said with a smile that made it clear she had answered the question before, "The Sound of Music" really was filmed in Austria. - Rene Williams DURR HARGE HEIMER Everett, Shannon Eversdyk, Julie Ezell, Carter Fatheree, Toni Felix, Linda Finch, Ron Fleet, Gary Flory, Pamela Foster, Jim Foster, Mindy Fox, Caroline Fox, David Franklin, Elaine Franklin, Julia Fredrick, Heidi Freeman, Celeste Freeman, Chris Freeman, Michael French, Brenda Friis, Lance Fulfer, Kenneth Fullwood, Hope Funke, Tami Gabrielson, Cheryl Gaiser, Scott Gardner, Deborah Garner, Sue Garringer, Layne George, Melinda Gibbs, Rebekah Gibson, Cynthia Gilbert, Michelle Gilbert, Steve Giles, Efton Ginn, Kevin Gipson, Julie Glaeser, Alan Goodspeed, Craig Goodwyn, Dara Gordon, Brian Gordon, Kimberly Gorman, Lisa Gorman, Wesley Graham, Rebekah Grant, Glenn Graves, Karle Gray, Lisa Green, Dana Green, Susan Greene, Tammy Griffith, Curtis Griggs, Rickie Guesner, Gayle Gulley, James Hager, Mark Hale, Toni Hall, Jeff Hall, Philip Hamm, Pamela Hampton, Mary Ann Hanby, Diana Hance Il, Wm.

But Nicole is different from most college sophomores with similar in- terests, because her plans include making candy by hand in her fatheris Abilene business. Vletas Enterprises, 2438 Industrial Blvd., was begun in the 1930s when her grandmother came from Greece and married her grandfather. Her father now operates the business, and Nicole said she plans to work in it because "I want to keep the tradition in the familyf' Nicole emphasized that the Vletases make all their candies by hand and use no artificial ingredients. "It's an art, you know," she added. "It's time consuming. It's not like Burger King or something. We don't just pop everything through a vertical hamburger grill without a second thought," she said. Nicole began helping when she was young by packaging candy. About two years ago she started helping her grandmother with dipping, a delicate process. The success of a batch of candy depends on the person dipping it, Nicole said. "It's not as easy as it sounds. First you have to decide if the texture is just right. lt's gross, but you have to squish your hand in all that chocolate and test it. Then you have to add the nuts or whatever," she said. "Believe me, it's a temptation to just scoop up a handful of chocolate and dig in!" Her eyes sparkled as she described dipping, her favorite step. She said every "dipper" has his own style, but her grandmother is the best. "This sounds weird, but my grandmother and I have a natural arch to our fingers, and we can hold the candy so it's just right," she said shyly. She demonstrated the finger position for dipping candy. I-Ier long, double- jointed fingers seemed to form a cradle and looked capable of producing dozens of nicely-rounded confections. - Amy Hatfield PYEATT PARK Rhoads, Russell Rhoden, Clifford Rhodes, Sara Richard, Tina Richardson, Brian Riley, Lisa Riney, Darla Rings, Kelly Robbins, Sheree Roberts, Bruce Roberts, Kelly Roberts, Sherri Robinett, Sherman Roetter, Frito Rogers, Paula Rose, Greg Rotenberry, Paul Rowe, Jill Ruby, Michael Rudd, Bill Russell, Richard Rust, Lynn Salmon, Julie Salter, Shelley Samsill, Teresa Sands, Pauletta Sargent, Michael Schaffncr, Annette Schwarz, Jeannie Scott.

Through the year class members also met for other social activities and devotionals. The junior class participated in the Student Founda- tion,s Homecoming Carnival, Oct. 31. Members of the class set up and manned a throwing booth. In keeping with the Carnival Island theme, which was taken from the Homecoming musical "South Pacific," contestants at the c1ass's booth attempted to throw a coconut through a tire. The registrar's office records showed that junior men outnumbered junior women, 437 to 371 in the fall semester and 449 to 371 in the spring. But the number ofjunior men and women accounting majors was equal at 38. 368 Juniors 'QU The junior class also boasted the only foreigr language majors in the fall semester. The number oi majors by sex was equal in that major also, with twc men and two women. The class of 1983 also had the largest number oi English majors with 10 juniors reporting English a: their major in the fall semester. The most popular majors for juniors were business with 258 class members, and education, with 175. A major in the health professions rated a distant thirc choice, with 53 juniors.

But after hearing Bart's quiet description of his plans to join the MARK program in Santiago, Chile, and to work in educational television, listeners realized that his low-key manner was misleading. The junior mass communication major's performances with the Big Purple were anything but low key. The bearded redhead led the Big Purple two years and was selected to be drum major for a third year. Bart said one reason he wanted to be drum major was that he believed Christians should be in high offices. As drum major he used his position to "help people feel wanted and cared forf' One way he tried to do that was by conducting band devotionals. Bart's interest in sharing Christian values and beliefs also led him in the summer of 1980 to publish a booklet of suggestions for high school evangelism, titled SHOUT: Senior High Outreaching Untother Teens. "I made the book to give kids a taste, to prick their minds, about what they can do in high school," Bart said. "I wish I could have had something like it." The mass communication major served on the staff of KACU and initiated a public affairs program entitled "Examine" Most of the public affairs pro- grams the station received were "really out of the college scene," Bart said. So, he worked to develop programming for ACU students and was appointed public affairs director. The program he developed examined topics such as relationships and cop- ing with stress. Bart asked staff members, teachers and others to contribute to "Examine," which aired mornings and evenings every school day. Bart's work with KACU was similar to what he hopes to do in television after graduating. He said he planned to create television documentaries and children's educational programs. - Marcie Vantrease and Kelly Deatherage FRA KLI GLE Gilliam, Ellen Golet, Joseph Goode, Maury Goodman, Rodney Graves, Stephen Gray, Barry Greathouse, Michael Green, David Greer, Thomas Griffin, Phyllis Gwin, Cheryl Hahn, Sara Hale, Clay Hale, Janaye Hale, Mary Haley, Lynna Hall, Lana Hall, Shelley Hamm, Jay Hammond, Kyle Hancock, Paul Hanks, Kerri Hanna, Connie Hart, David Hartin, Stansley Harwell, Kevin Hatchett, Brenda Hathorn, Jack Hawley, Glynda Hays, David Hays, Marie Heft, Scott Henderson, Susan Henley, Walter Henn, Steven Henry, Brenda Heuss, Cynthia Hickman, Susan Hilton, Jimmie Hines, Barbara Hodges, Sheila Hogg, Kenneth Holditch, Murry Holladay, Kirk Holland, Brennan Holley, Cindy Holt, Mike Hooper, Cedric Hooper, Tina Hooten, Grace Hoover, Mark Hopkins, Mike House, Thomas Howard, Fred Howard, John Howard, Jonathan Howard, Susan Howard, Valeria Hughes, Max Scott Hulett, Joy Hulme, Kimberly Hutton, Kathy lgo, Robin Ingle, Connie Juniors 373 lngram, Philip Irvin, Carole Jackson, Rhonda Jennings, Jay Jobc, Kristie Johnson, Bobby Johnson, Jeffery Johnson, Robert Johnson, Sharon Johnston, Donald Joiner, Kelly Jones, Jim Jones, Renee Jones, Todd Jones, Barbie Jordan, Laura Kajama, Olivia Keesee, Dita King, Curtis King, James Kingston, Kym Kirkpatrick, Leah Kitt, Sondra Kneipper, Karen Knight, Renai Koenig, James Koonce, Philip Kreidel, Karen Lair, Robert Larson, Julie Larson, Steveri Lavender, Amber Lee, Robin Lenhart, Richard Leverett, Doris Lewers, Jennifer Lewis, Kern Lewis, Todd Little, Tami Lockwood, Laura Long, Kirk Long, Stewart Loomis, Vick Lorber, Jeff Love, William Loveland, Lawrence Loveland, Stephen Mahaffey, John Mallory, Dawn Marks, Shelley Marsh, Rhonda Martin, Cathy Martin, Ferryn Massingill, Laura Mattis, Kathryn Mavrinac, Sandra Mayes, John Mays.

Hale, a junior marketing major, believed in being involved in school ac- tivities and using his musical talents. And he was involved. By looking in the index of the Prickly Pear, it was ob- vious he lived according to his beliefs. The string of pages he appeared on was longer than almost anyone else's. Some of the musical organizations he participated in were A Cappella, the Big Purple Band, Summerstage, three years of Sing Song and the musical "South Pacific," in which he played the lead. Besides his singing ability, he played the French horn and the piano. "I can play the guitar if you give me a little bit of time,', he said smiling. "I don't really want to be remembered for any one thing," Clay said. "Fd just like to be remembered by the people that meant a lot to mef, He said being involved had helped him make friends since his freshman year, and mentioned the musical he was in his first year at ACU. "That's how I met my two best friends," he said. He and two other freshmen stayed up all night painting props, and he said that memory was one of his favorites. In the future, Clay hoped to get into the music industry as a back-up vocalist or singer. "It sounds kind of silly for someone in college to say, 'I want to make it big someday,' yet not be known as a religious singer," he said slightly red-faced. "I want to be known as a singer who has a firm religious background? Clay said that many people in the music industry think they have to step on other people to succeed, but he wanted to succeed without hurting anyone. "I want to keep centered on God - having the focus on the right things," he said. Clay talked about his involvement in other activities on campus, and said, "That's what it,s Qschoolj all aboutf' - Rene Williams OVIAN SMITH Patterson, Kay Payne, Michael Perkins, Michael Perry, Greg Pharis, Randall Phariss, Brian Pierce, Craig Polnisch, Frederick Porter, Lynn Porter, William Prather, Jeff Pratt, Gary Von Price, Janie Price, Laura Pringle, Kari Pringle, Ryan Pringle, Wes Pritchett, Rick Pruitt, Timothy Rall, Annette Ramsey, Charles Randel, Mark Ratcliff, Charles Ray, Greg Respess, Kimberly Rhoads, Ronna Richards, Melone Riley, Clay Risser, Cindy Robbins, Debora Robbins, Mark Robinson, Polly Roehrkass, Jo Ellen Rogers, Dee Rogers, Rhonda Rohre, Susan Rokey, Mark Salter, Richard Sandefur, Julie Sandine, Brian Sandusky, Grant Sargent, Stephen Scarborough, Billie Schuyler, Gary Scoggins, Tammy Scott, Lynn See, William Sellers, Rob Sessions, Jeanette Shaffer, Stephen Sharp, Becky Shaw, Cynthia Shelton, Brian Sherman, Donald Shinn, Stephanie Shipley, Bob Shipley, Glen Shipp, William Shuford, Tammy Sickles, Roberta Siddens, Debbie Smith, Bob Smith, Deanne Smith, Elise Juniors 377 Smith, Kimberly Smith, Madison Smith, Natalie Smith, Sharon Smith, Sid Smith, Yancy Snell,Gary Souder, Scott Soward, West Spann, David Speck, Lisa Spencer, Janie Spencer, Kathy Stephens, Becky Stevens, David Stewart, Darrell Stewart, Teresa Stone, Julie Stone, Wanda Story, James Randall Strickland, Pamela Sullivan, Sarah Sullivan, Susan Sullivan, William Swetkovich, Sherri Swinney, Kimberly Takacs, Charles Tate, Curtis Tate, Shannon Taylor, Laurie Tchen, Jonathas Teague, Helen Thaxton, Kirk Thomas, J, Todd Thompson, Douglas Thorn, Gregory Thornton, Wesley Thornton, William Todd, Lisa Todd, Tammile Tolson, Kelly Traylor, Karen Trevino, Lisa Truxal, Mark Tudor, Jana Turman, Kimberly Turner, Jason Turner, Juanita Turner, Tori Tyson, Lu Anne Vanderpoel, David Vanderslice, Jean Vaughan, Brenda Vernon, Marshon Vining, Margaret Waddill, Kendall Walker, Justin Walker, Thad Walker, Weston Warren, Louis Warren, Yulanda Watkins, Rick Wallington, Lori Watson.

Before the Christmas break 798 students were registered as seniors, but after the term break the registrarls office records showed 905 senior students. More than 500 of the spring semester seniors graduated May 2. Many of those who did not graduate continued in summer school and made up more than one-third of the approximately 1,000 students registered in Summester I. The class of l982 also had the largest Homecoming court in the schoolis history. Fourteen senior women were chosen by fellow students in late October to serve on the court. Although the senior class followed the schoolwide trend of having more business majors than any others, 380 Seniors almost as many majored in education. In the fal semester 252 seniors were seeking bachelor of busines administration degrees and 232 were working towar' bachelor of science degrees in education. The next most-popular degrees were in psychology and physics education, with 24 seniors in each program. Also unique to the class was the only male nursin major registered in the fall and the largest number c female Bible majors.

But Kim-Cuong Thi Bui made the journey between the two. Kim, a senior accounting major, fled South Vietnam with her family the day the Communists captured Saigon in 1975. They lived in refugee camps in the Philippines, Guam and Pennsylvania while awaiting a U.S. sponsor who would be responsible for them until they found a home and jobs. One day during their three-month wait in Pennsylvania Kim stepped off a bus and saw a former neighbor from Saigon, Ca Cong Nguyen. Ca, a pilot for the South Vietnamese, had flown to an American base in Thailand the day of the Communist takeover. Three months later he moved to the Pennsylvania refugee camp where he was reunited with the Buis. Ca and the Buis moved to Sweetwater under the sponsorship of US. Rep. Charles Stenholm and the Lutheran Church. But after 10 months the Viet- namese group moved to Abilene so Kim and her sisters could live at home while attending college. About three years later, Kim married her former neighbor. Kim said her father intended for his four children to receive a university education. "My father believes getting education and good jobs is a way we can show appreciation to America for helping us through a difficult begin- ning,', she said. Kim said she adjusted well to life in America but often missed the homeland she left when she was 15. Vietnamese culture still was important to Kim's family, and they often prepared Vietnamese foods and observed Viet- namese holidays and customs. One custom that Kim and Ca did not observe concerned the use of last names - in Vietnam a wife did not take her husband's family name. However, Kim said she often used Ca's last name to avoid confusion, "even though I don't think itis fair that I should have to give up my name." But she did not give up her first name, nor forget its meaning, "diamond" And after learning of the hardships and dangers that polished and shaped Kimls life, "diamond" seemed appropriate. - Kelly Deatherage CASTLE GR VE Compton.

During that year she worked in the "beanery" and was crowned queen of Eta Beta Pi, an organization for students who were employed in the cafeteria. In the summer of 1949 she married Fred Stirman, a senior Wildcat foot- ball letterman. She had met him three days after she arrived at ACC. Her name is Gladine Stirman, and she returned to ACU in 1980 to com- plete the degree she had begun 31 years earlier. "At first, some of the members of my family thought I'd completely flipped my lid," the education major laughingly said. "But after they got used to the idea, they were completely supportive." "From the very beginning my husband and three sons were very encourag- ing and enthusiastic about my return to college. They were all very proud of me," she said. Gladine worked as a secretary for 25 years and as a teacher's aide for six years before she decided that she would like to return to school and become certified to teach. She said she chose elementary education with an emphasis in reading because she saw so many children who needed help with reading. Although the decision to return to school was easily made, Gladine said she knew it would take a lot of work to excel. But because her children were grown and no longer living at home, she said she thought she would have plenty of time to devote to her studies. "I was afraid that I might be resented by the kids on campus. I've been there once and know how hectic college life can be," she said. "I didn't have anything to worry about except my schoolwork, and many kids are involved in so many other activities." But contrary to her fears, the kids on campus were tremendous, she said. "If I was ever treated like a mother, it was at my own initiation. I was amazed how readily the students accepted me," Gladine said. "I almost dreaded getting out of school," she said with a grin.
