Health, Physical Education and Recreation eam jump rope for heart The health, physical education and recreation department leaped into the air with the start ofa jump rope team led by Liz Campbell, physical education instructor. The four-member team performed pro- grams for various elementary, junior high and high schools in the Abilene area to pro- mote jumping rope as an exercise program for the heart in conjunction with the American Heart Association. The team's routine included individual and team tricks, with members using 9-foot and 16-foot ropes for the stunts, Campbell said. Other team members were Susan Amend, a junior from Antlers, Okla.g Beth Owens, a junior from Conroeg and Cindy D, Shaw, ajunior from El Paso.

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
